Hardwood mill to get one owner Partner’s buyout not affecting personnel By Tom Callis
Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles Hardwood mill will soon go from two owners to one. Mill President Lindsay Crawford said David Syree, owner of Cascade Hardwood, has agreed to buy out his partner, Dick Tinney, owner of Washington Alder. Cascade Hardwood and Washington Alder opened the Port Angeles mill under a partnership in 2006. The sale should be finalized by February, said Crawford, who declined to provide the purchase price. “We have roughly 60 days to close the deal,” he said.
Action began in 2009 The partners began to move toward a breakup in May 2009, Crawford said. The mill was put up for sale in early November to see if there would be any other prospective buyers. Crawford said he couldn’t say if there were any other offers. The mill at 333 Eclipse Industrial Parkway employs about 90 people and makes furniture-grade lumber. Crawford said he doesn’t know how the buyout will affect personnel. “At this point, there’s no change,” he said. Turn

WASHINGTON — House Republicans taking over the majority next week will do something never before done in the 221-year history of Congress. They will read the Constitution aloud.

Snooki’s ball drop moves to Jersey TURNS OUT THERE wasn’t room for Snooki in Times Square this New Year’s Eve. MTV’s plan to put “Jersey Shore” star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi inside a ball to drop Polizzi from the network’s Times Square headquarters has been dropped after an objection by the group that oversees the world-famous celebration. But Snooki will still drop in as part of “The MTV New Year’s Bash.” Her stunt has been relocated to Seaside Heights, N.J., according to Diane Stabley, borough clerk for the Jersey shore town made famous as the setting for MTV’s hit reality show. “Like the ball that drops in Times Square, there’s going to be a Snooki ball,” Stabley said Thursday. She said an MTV network crew was in town to pre-tape the spectacle Thursday night. “We love our Times Square home,” MTV said in a statement confirming the

Briefly: Nation Lisa Murkowski certified winner of Senate race JUNEAU, Alaska — Sen. Lisa Murkowski was officially named the winner of Alaska’s U.S. Senate race Thursday, following a period of legal fights and limbo that lasted longer than the write-in campaign she waged to keep her job. Gov. Sean Parnell and Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell, who oversees elections, signed the paperwork certifying her win in the hotly contested race. “It’s done,” Treadwell said after penning his last signature in front of cameras in Parnell’s office. The paperwork was Murkowski expected to be hand-delivered to Washington, D.C., by state Division of Elections Director Gail Fenumiai to guard against delays that could keep Murkowski from being sworn in with her colleagues on Wednesday. With certification, Murkowski becomes the first U.S. Senate candidate since Strom Thurmond in 1954 to win a write-in campaign. The official vote tally certified Thursday showed her margin of victory over her nearest opponent, Republican rival Joe Miller, was 10,252 votes.
Grizzly bear deaths up BILLINGS, Mont. — Grizzly bear deaths neared record levels for the region around Yellowstone
National Park in 2010, but government biologists said the population remains robust enough to withstand the heavy losses. An estimated 75 of the protected animals were killed or removed from the wild, according to a government-sponsored grizzly study team in the sparsely populated Yellowstone region of Montana, Wyoming and Idaho. The deaths were blamed primarily on grizzlies pushing into inhabited areas, where bears get into trouble as they search out food in farmyards and from the big game herds also stalked by hunters.
Heavy snow, rain BELLEMONT, Ariz. — A winter storm pummeled the western U.S. on Thursday with fierce wind gusts, heavy rain and more than 2 feet of snow, closing freeways, forcing people from their homes in a California town and dumping a snowy mix of precipitation on the edges of Phoenix. Officials closed a road into Yosemite National Park in California after a rock the size of a dump truck tumbled onto the road, and strong winds created snow dunes on rooftops, front yards and streets across mountainous areas of Arizona. Snow and ice forced an hours-long closure of the two major thoroughfares in northern Arizona, stranding motorists south of Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon. People in Phoenix were stunned at the sight of snowtype flurries that the National Weather Service said were a combination of hail and snow that melts before it hits the ground. The Associated Press
Briefly: World Ex-president of Israel is found guilty of rape JERUSALEM — Former Israeli President Moshe Katsav was convicted of rape Thursday, a dramatic fall from grace for a man who rose from humble beginnings to become a symbol of achievement for Jews of Middle Eastern origin. The disgraced politician, who had rejected a plea bargain that would have kept him out of jail, will likely be sentenced to four to 16 years in prison. Katsav The verdict was seen as a victory for the Israeli legal system and for women’s rights in a decades-long struggle to chip away at the nation’s macho culture, which once permitted political and military leaders great liberties. The Tel Aviv District Court found Katsav, 65, guilty of two counts of raping an employee in 1998, when he was Israel’s tourism minister. It also convicted him of lesser counts of indecent acts; sexual harassment involving two other women who worked for him when he was president, from 2000 to 2007; and obstruction of justice.
14-year sentence MOSCOW — A judge has sentenced jailed Russian oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky to 14

Judge Viktor Danilkin on Thursday Khodorkovsky handed down the sentence after convicting Khodorkovsky of stealing oil from his own company and laundering the proceeds. Khodorkovsky is in the final year of an eight-year prison sentence. His lawyers said the new sentence is counted from his 2003 arrest and includes his previous term in jail.
Bolivia gas prices LA PAZ, Bolivia — Protests intensified in Bolivia on Thursday against a sharp increase in fuel prices imposed by President Evo Morales’ government. Thousands of demonstrators marched in La Paz and other cities, calling for the price hikes to be repealed. Some demanded Morales’ resignation. The higher prices were announced suddenly Sunday, and it has been the most unpopular measure of Morales’ five-year presidency. It led to an immediate 73 percent jump in gasoline prices and an 83 percent rise in prices for diesel — and also prompted rapid increases in transport and food prices in the Andean country. Fuel prices had been frozen for six years, but the government said it could no longer afford to subsidize them, especially since much is smuggled across the border to neighboring countries.

Kidney parole condition raises ethical questions Mississippi governor’s decision in 2 sisters’ case sparks debate By Holbrook Mohr The Associated Press
JACKSON, Miss. — A debate is unfolding over an unusual offer from Mississippi’s governor: He will free two sisters imprisoned for an armed robbery that netted $11, but one woman’s release requires her to donate her kidney to the other. The condition is alarming some experts, who have raised legal and ethical questions. Among them: If it turns out the sisters aren’t a good tissue match, does that mean the healthy one goes back to jail? Gov. Haley Barbour’s decision to suspend the life sentences of Jamie and Gladys Scott was applauded by civil rights organizations and the women’s attorney, who have long said the sentences were too harsh for the crime. The sisters are black, and their case has been a cause celebre in the state’s African-American community. The Scotts were convicted in 1994 of leading two men into an ambush in central Mississippi the year before. Three teenagers hit each man in the head with a shotgun and took their wallets — making off with only $11, court
records said. After 16 years in prison, Jamie Scott, 36, is on daily dialysis, which officials said costs the state about $200,000 a year. Barbour agreed to release her because of her medical condition, but 38-year-old Gladys Scott’s release order said one of the conditions she must meet is to donate the kidney within one year. The idea to donate the kidney was Gladys Scott’s, and she volunteered to do it in her petition for early release. National NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous thanked Barbour on Thursday after meeting him at the state capital in Jackson, calling his decision “a shining example” of the way a governor should use the power of clemency. Others aren’t so sure. Arthur Caplan, the director of the Center for Bioethics at the University of Pennsylvania, has studied transplants and their legal and ethical ramifications for about 25 years. He said he’s never heard of anything like this. Even though Gladys Scott proposed the idea in her petition for an
early release and volunteered to donate the organ, Caplan said, it is against the law to buy and sell organs or to force people to give one up. “When you volunteer to give a kidney, you’re usually free and clear to change your mind right up to the last minute,” he said. “When you put a condition on it that you could go back to prison, that’s a pretty powerful incentive.” So what happens if she decides, minutes from surgery, to back off the donation? “My understanding is that she’s committed to doing this. This is something that she came up with,” said Barbour’s spokesman, Dan Turner. “This is not an idea the governor’s office brokered. It’s not a quid pro quo.” What happens if medical testing determines that the two are not compatible for a transplant? Turner said the sisters are a blood-type match but that tests to determine tissue compatibility still need to be done. If they don’t match or if she backs out, will she be heading back to prison? “All of the ‘what if’ questions are, at this point, purely hypothetical,” Barbour said in a statement from his office late Thursday. “We’ll deal with those situations if they actually happen.”
Crumbling roads, deteriorating restrooms at many state parks By Chris Blank
The Associated Press
KAISER, Mo. — At state parks across the nation, this is the toll of the deepening budget crisis and years of financial neglect: crumbling roads, faltering roofs, deteriorating restrooms. Electrical and sewer systems are beginning to give out, too, as are scores of park buildings, some of them built by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression.
Aging bridges In a few places, aging bridges have been detoured and tunnels blocked off because of falling debris. The tough economy has made money scarcer for administrators
at some of the country’s most treasured public spaces who have been forced to postpone maintenance and construction projects, creating a huge backlog of unfinished work that would cost billions of dollars to complete. Park managers said they try to funnel money to the most urgent needs. Others have received help from private groups or volunteers to tackle work they cannot afford to finish on their own. Many states had backlogs long before the economy started to decline. But the lack of revenue has allowed more sites to decay, and no one can say how long the work will have to wait. The Associated Press sought information from park administrators across the nation and consulted researchers and published
reports. An AP analysis of the data showed that the backlog of projects has ballooned to more than $7 billion and continues to grow.
Little help Park officials said federal stimulus efforts have offered little help for the 6,500-plus state parks, recreation areas and historic sites in the U.S. And they contend a federal conservation fund to support recreation areas has skewed toward federal facilities. More than a dozen states estimate that their backlogs are at least $100 million. “Everyone seems to have sort of similar issues: Nobody has a lot of money, and everyone has a lot of projects to do,” said Will Harris, director of the Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands.

THE INTERNATIONAL HOUSE of Pancakes has dropped its legal flap against a Missouri church over their shared initials. The Glendale, Calif.-based flapjack chain accused the International House of Prayer in Kansas City over the church’s use of the initials on its website and in signs and events at its headquarters. IHOP, the restaurant, argued that it might confuse customers and could link the pancake chain with the church. The chain dismissed its lawsuit last week in federal court in Los Angeles.

A SWEDISH MAN was sentenced Thursday to two years and eight months in prison for instigating the theft a year ago of the notorious “Arbeit Macht Frei” (“Work Sets You Free”) sign from the former Auschwitz death camp. A judge at a regional court in the southern Polish city of Krakow approved a settlement that Anders Hogstrom, 35, had reached with prosecutors, court spokesman Rafal Lisak said. Hogstrom had confessed to involvement in the December 2009 theft, though he argued that a Swedish man talked him into organizing the heist. The sign was replaced by a replica after the theft.

Tighter disclosure rules for PACs sought by legislator OLYMPIA — In a response to outrage over furtive funding that played a role in two Puget Soundarea legislative races this fall, state Sen. Craig Pridemore, D-Vancouver, Wash., has unveiled legislation that would tighten Washington’s campaign-financedisclosure rules. Sen. Jean Berkey, D-Everett, has called on her colleagues to refuse to swear in her Democratic primary opponent, Nick Harper, who she claims benefited from tainted campaign money to beat her in August. It’s no idle accusation. After a lengthy Public Disclosure Commission investigation, state Attorney General Rob McKenna has sued Moxie Media, a Democratic firm that gathered contributions from labor unions and stateemployee groups. About $9,000 of that helped pay for two mailers and automated phone calls to attack Berkey, who was targeted by liberal Democrats upset with her views.
Closing loopholes Pridemore’s pre-filed Senate Bill 5021, which he has discussed with Minority Leader Sen. Mike Hewitt, R-Walla Walla, would shut down disclosure loopholes. It would: ■ Require that a PAC’s name contain the name of the person or group creating it.

■ Require PACs created to support or oppose a candidate to name that individual, his or her party affiliation, office sought and year of election. ■ Prohibit two PACs from using the same name. ■ Establish the presumption — with guidelines for rebuttal — that any group or person creating more than two PACs is doing so to conceal donors’ identity. ■ Ban PAC-to-PAC contributions, outside of established political parties and caucus political committees. Pridemore’s bill also would lower the reporting threshold for “electioneering communication” to the fair market value of $1,000, from the current $5,000, and lower the mandatory electronic-filing threshold for candidates and political committees from $10,000 to $5,000. The bill would raise limits on single and aggregate penalties, up to a $10,000 fine for each violation. It also would set criminal penalties for intentional violations, ranging from misdemeanor to Class C felony charges. Pridemore plans to push the bill as soon as 0C5105651

Problem was, the cash was folded into two new PACs — political action committees — Cut Taxes PAC and Conservative PAC, without the union pledges’ being disclosed as required by state law. Moxie was further found to have created dozens of PACs to skirt disclosure rules. In another nasty race, Sen. Eric Oemig, D-Kirkland, was the object of an anonymous mail piece funded, without the proper paperwork, by a local arm of the conservative Americans for Prosperity. Oemig was defeated by GOP candidate Andy Hill. Enter Pridemore, new chairman of the revamped Senate Government Operations, Tribal Affairs and Elections Committee.

legislators gather. He said he’s confident he’ll find broad support, as aggrieved parties cross political lines. “It’s a huge issue, [an] immediate issue. I would like to show real quickly we’ve got a process, going forward, to address the problem,” he said. The recent episodes reveal “what could be done by unscrupulous people trying to avoid disclosure,” Pridemore said. “And it will be done, now that they see it’s possible” to duck disclosure until well past an election, he said. Regulating the PAC shell games is distinct from the U.S. Supreme Court’s controversial “Citizens United” ruling that opened the door to mass contributions by corporations, Pridemore noted. “We’re not doing anything with how much money people can pay,” he said. “We’re simply saying you have to disclose it.” Rep. Tim Probst, D-Vancouver, Wash., was among other Democrats indirectly aided by a Moxie Media front group. He also has called for improved rules to curb secretive campaign spending.
WASHINGTON — Despite new travel requirements, more than 2.3 million Americans re-entering the country by land or sea from Mexico or Canada failed to produce a passport, birth certificate or other secure document to establish identity and nationality, a government review has found. Most people, including about 500,000 in California, were still allowed to pass through ports of entry without the approved documents or without being transferred to a secondary inspection post for a more in-depth examination, according to a report by the inspector general for the Department of Homeland Security. Many travelers were allowed to pass after undergoing extensive questioning and producing at least a driver’s license, the report found. Overall, 96 percent of travelers arriving at the 39 busiest land ports complied with the new law, which took effect in 2009. The procedure for processing those without the required documents also needs to be more precise and implemented across the board, the report said. Despite these findings, the audit concluded that if all those who skirted the rules were referred to a secondary inspection, which is not required now, the agency would not have the necessary staffing and infrastructure to handle the increase in workload. U.S. Customs and Border Protection agrees with the findings and plans on following the inspector general’s recommendations, said Stephanie Malin, an agency spokeswoman. The Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative, approved by Congress last year, requires U.S. travelers re-entering the country from Mexico or Canada to present documents, such as a passport or birth certificate, to U.S. Customs and

Border Protection officers. At the San Ysidro Port of Entry in San Diego, the busiest land border crossing in the United States, a traveler without the proper documents is usually sent to a secondary inspection for further scrutiny, said Jackie Dizdul, a San Diego spokeswoman for the agency. But if an officer can determine the person’s identity and citizenship in the initial contact, through questioning or other supporting documents, such as a driver’s license, they are allowed to pass without being referred to a secondary inspection, Dizdul said. All travelers who are not in compliance are told how the regulations work and what documents are required. In the first eight months of the initiative, officers at San Ysidro referred about 282,000 travelers without proper documents, about 1,150 a day, to secondary inspections. During this same period, officers allowed about 167,000 travelers, about 680 a day, to pass without the documents or a secondary inspection. With staffing levels and available space, a policy that sends all noncompliant travelers to a secondary inspection would cause major delays at the port, the review said. Out of more than 1 million people, both U.S. and foreign citizens, who legally enter the United States each day, about threefourths arrive by land from Mexico or Canada.

Moratorium comments due today Public has input on plan for Elwha fishing pause Peninsula Daily News
OLYMPIA — Today is the deadline for submission of public comments on a proposed five-year fishing moratorium for the Elwha River and its tributaries. The state Department of Fish & Wildlife is proposing the moratorium to help protect fish runs during and after removal of the 108foot Elwha Dam and the 210-foot Glines Canyon Dam. The state Fish and Wildlife Commission will conduct a public hearing on the moratorium proposal at 1:15 p.m. Friday, Jan. 7, in Room 172 on the first floor of the Natural Resources Building, 1111 S.E. Washington St., Olympia. The panel, which sets policy for the state Department of Fish & Wildlife, is scheduled to make a decision on the proposed fishing moratorium, which would begin next fall, at its Feb. 4-5 meeting in Olympia. The proposed rule has stirred concerns about the possible closure of Lake Sutherland, west of Port Angeles, with speakers at a packed meeting Dec. 15 in Port Angeles showing support for a fishing moratorium for the river as long as
it didn’t include the lake. Fish & Wildlife Regional Fish Program Manager Ron Warren said at the Port Angeles meeting that the lake was under consideration for closure to help the anadromous sockeye salmon survive, possibly by breeding with kokanee, or landlocked sockeye, in the lake.
Have to adapt After dam demolition, fish in the two reservoirs will have to adapt to a river ecosystem, and habitat for anadromous fish below the dams will change as sediment blocked behind the dams is washed downstream. Warren said the moratorium will give those populations a better chance of survival by giving them a boost before the dams come down and by protecting them for a few years after demolition. The agenda for the Jan. 7 meeting is at www. wdfw.wa.gov/commission/ meetings.html. A link in the agenda goes to the fishing moratorium proposal. Comments on the proposed fishing moratorium can be submitted to Fish & Wildlife rules coordinator Lori Preuss at lori.preuss@ dfw.wa.gov or at 600 N. Capitol Way, Olympia, WA 98501.

Jack Harmon, owner of the Victoria Express II, and two other men pull the Victoria Express II backward a few hundred feet alongside a dock at the Port Angeles Boat Haven on Thursday. He said the Port of Port Angeles asked him to move the boat to make room along the dock. Harmon said that he didn’t want to start the engines because the boat had its exhaust ports plugged up for winter storage, so he and the other men slowly hauled the 200,000-pound boat by hand. Harmon said that if the weather was windy instead of calm, he would not have attempted to move it manually.

Because fish runs go through the river and the culvert is under an arterial street, federal funds originally were allotted to the project, Monohon said. But those funds are on hold for now, he said. “It is frustrating, of course,” he said. “Our logging guys want to just go over there and
throw in a culvert and seal it up, but it is a fish-bearing stream, and under the federal guidelines, it has to be done a certain way.”
28 feet wide The plan is to place a box culvert, which is 28 feet wide, under the road, Monohon said. “That is about as big as it gets without calling it a bridge,” he said. “We are hoping that with that width, it will have a little more freedom to flow and we won’t have the problems with erosion,” he said.

Make a wish for a happy New Year First Night to feature area’s Chinese heritage Peninsula Daily News
PORT TOWNSEND — At one time, Chinese immigrants ran farms and stores and worked in shipyards and homes throughout East Jefferson County. During the 1890s depression, most left, said Phyllis Snyder of the Jefferson County Historical Society. But before then, “we had a huge Chinese community in the Victorian Era” in the late 1800s, Snyder said. The accomplishments and culture of Chinese immigrants will be celebrated New Year’s Eve during the historical society’s First Night, an annual alcohol-free event that offers games, crafts, stories, films and, of course, fireworks to usher in the new year. All activities will take place in and around Port Townsend’s historic City Hall at 540 Water St. between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. Friday. The theme of the Chi-
nese heritage of the area will tie many of the myriad events together, according to information from Snyder, who is coordinating First Night. The Jefferson Community School at 280 Quincy St. will host a crafts session to make Chinese lanterns from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. “Kids and their families can make these authenticlooking lanterns, with battery-operated lights in them,” Snyder said.
‘Traveling trunk’ Also at the school will be a “traveling trunk” from the historical society’s permanent exhibit in the museum in historic City Hall. The trunk show will feature artifacts and photos documenting the county’s Chinese heritage. “Happiness Wishes for 2011” can be made in the courtroom gallery at historic City Hall There, a Chinese charac-

Congress: Debate split along partisan lines Many lawmakers will participate, with one representative reading a portion of the document before yielding the floor to another representative to continue reading and so forth. Boehner spokesman Brendan Buck said Democratic lawmakers are welcome to participate. “We always hear members of Congress talking about swearing an oath to represent their constituents when in reality, the only oath we take is to the Constitution,” Boehner said in a speech this fall. “We pledge ‘to support
and defend the Constitution of the United States.’ No more, no less.” The House Historian’s Office found no record of the Constitution having been read aloud on the House floor, though two lawmakers have submitted the text into the Congressional Record — Roswell Flower, D-N.Y., in 1882 and Thomas Reilly, D-Conn., in 1915. The historic nature of the reading came as a surprise to some tea party leaders. Akhil Reed Amar, a Yale Law School constitutional scholar, supports the reading.
“I like the Constitution,” he said. “Heck, I’ll do them one better. Why only once in January? Why not once every week? “My disagreement is when we actually read the Constitution as a whole, it doesn’t say what the teaparty folks think it says.”
‘Broad power’ Amar argues that the Constitution charters a “very broad federal power” and is not the narrow states’ rights document that tea party activists present it as. The constitutional author-

ity rule will restart this debate with each new bill. Every piece of legislation now will require a statement from its sponsor outlining how the Constitution empowers Congress to enact such a law. Republican leaders have distributed a five-page memo outlining how to determine a bill’s constitutional authority. They also hosted training sessions for legislative aides. The debate over constitutionality has split largely along partisan lines, leading some legal scholars to say the new House rule might be more about playing politics. “I see this as a statement of the Republican Party, heavily influenced by the tea party, that we are the defenders of the Constitution and we will exercise our constitutional responsibilities seriously in ways the Democrats did not,” said Neil Siegel, a law professor at Duke University. For tea party activists, however, this will be the true test of whether Republican leaders are taking the Constitution seriously. “You can do the talk, but you have to do the walk,” said Clifford Atkin, a leader of the New Boston Tea Party in Woodbury, Conn.
A pillar of their movement will become a staple in the bureaucracy that governs Congress. Yet, the question debated in legal and political circles is whether the constitutional rules simply are symbolic flourishes to satisfy an emboldened and watchful tea-party base. “I think it’s entirely cosmetic,” said Kevin Gutzman, a Western Connecticut State University history professor who said he is a libertarian and sympathizes with the tea party movement.
“This is the way the establishment handles grass-roots movements,” he added. “They humor people who are not expert or not fully cognizant. And then once they’ve humored them and those people go away, it’s right back to business as usual.” The reading of the Constitution will occur Thursday, one day after the swearing in of Speaker-designate John Boehner of Ohio. The 4,543-word document, including all 27 amendments, could be read aloud in 30 minutes. But the exercise probably will last longer.

point of view
THE magnitude and depth of this recession has made one thing clear — business as usual can no longer be the norm. Our state faces a budget shortfall of historic proportions and for the coming 2011-13 biennium we must close a $4.6 billion gap. With more Gregoire than 60 percent of the state budget constitutionally protected from reductions, we must cut one-third of the remaining amount. It won’t be easy. It will be felt. And there are few good options. These are historic times, and they call for an entirely different look at what state government can and can’t do. The budget I proposed two weeks ago does not rely on new revenue. This past November, voters soundly rejected any notion that
for their upkeep and protection. n I require adult family homes to pay for the full cost of their licensing. n I cancel the 2012 presidential primary, which is done out of tradition, not necessity. (Washington relies on caucuses to select their candidates). n I’ve addressed the unfunded liability in our pension system, saving $11 billion over 25 years. n I’m addressing health-care inflation to save $26 billion statewide over the next 10 years. n And I’ve asked state employees, who haven’t had a cost-of-living increase in four years, to shoulder more of their health-care burden and to take a 3 percent pay reduction. n Along with other statewide elected officials, I’ve requested that the commission that sets our salaries to give us the same pay cut. I made some decisions because I wanted to, and many because I had to. By its very nature, government is a methodic process. In times of calm that system works.
In times of crisis, urgency is essential and boldness is required. Even so, it’s important to remember that our core mission is serving people. We’re not selling a product or service, rather we’re protecting the public, educating our kids, incarcerating prisoners, keeping highways safe and preserving our environment. With many of the cuts we’re forced to make, we stretch the safety net thin. More than ever we will need to rely on community groups, faith-based organizations and neighbors to help shoulder the burden. In January the Legislature convenes and will use my budget as a starting point. They will find what I did — options are scarce, decisions are tough, bold reform is a must and time is of the essence. Chris Gregoire is in her second term as governor. Martha Ireland, our regular Friday columnist, is off today.
End retire-rehire: Current policy rightly troubles taxpayers When it comes to ideas for cleaning up the state budget, this one is akin to sweeping the dust balls out of the corner. The roof still is leaking and the porch still is sagging, but at least the corners will be dustfree. That’s the best analogy for Gov. Chris Gregoire’s proposal to end retire-rehire exemptions for state employees. It’s necessary, but much work will remain once the chore is completed. Gregoire has proposed limitations on a state policy that allows employees to retire, begin collecting a pension, and then be rehired for the same job or a similar one. This has created an epidemic of double-dipping, in which
workers receive full retirement benefits while still collecting a salary. To be fair, the workers are not to be faulted in this situation. While state employees have been scapegoated for many aspects of Washington’s budget problems, in this situation they deserve to be absolved. If state policy allowed for the retire-rehire scenario, eligible workers would have been foolish to not take advantage of the possibility. In this situation, the question is: “Wouldn’t you do the same thing if you could?” Still, the scenario is one that requires fixing — and the blame can be directed at legislators who allowed this flawed policy
to exist in the first place. According to the governor’s office, the proposal will save the state $2.2 billion over the next 25 years. That won’t patch the roof or fix the porch, but it will tidy up the place a bit. In 2001, lawmakers expanded the opportunity for retirees from state-administered retirement systems to return to work while still receiving their monthly pension. In 2003, limitations on the number of hours those employees could work were put in place — an acknowledgment that there were problems with the plan. But a recent investigation exposed abuses in the system, particularly in the state
Peninsula Voices Almost nothing left Since 1981, I’ve lived on Twin View Drive overlooking the newly created 148acre state Department of Fish and Wildlife Lower Dungeness Unit just west of the mouth of the Dungeness River. As people passed away, some land was donated for conservation of eagles, songbirds, upland birds, mammals large and small, reptiles and amphibians. Ever since this area has been opened up to the general public with zero enforcement, and hunters started shooting at anything that moves, almost nothing alive is left. The area is a 24-hour war zone where the latest Cabela’s night vision/bow and arrow/munitions are used and trespassing is all over. Even domestic cats and dogs have been shot. Hunters are all over, even right in front of my house where I pay taxes for my share of the private Pioneer Beach Community Park. I am constantly awakened by loud shooting, my dogs are in constant trembling fear — and I fear being shot as bullets often fly my way. Why is our government

How can we all accept this? Carlos Jorge Heine, Sequim I am writing to express my opposition to the proposed closure of Lake Sutherland for five years. Year-round closure is not necessary to determine if the lake would support an anadromous sockeye salmon population. I have a home on Lake Sutherland that brings joy to our family and our friends. Lake Sutherland is a pristine lake that supports water sports and the quiet of fishing, in concert. Otters catch fish, as do bald eagles and osprey. Stopping fishing on Lake Sutherland will do great harm to property values and possible changes in the level of the lake, affecting water sports. Lake Sutherland provides easy access for children and seniors who enjoy catching trout and kokanee.

Employment Security Department, of all places. While rehired workers were supposed to be limited to 867 hours annually, the investigation revealed one employee who worked 2,000 hours in a year, and others who also exceeded the cap. “It showed us we have some cleanup to do,” Sheryl Hutchison, an Employment Security spokeswoman, told The Seattle Times. The investigation also revealed violations regarding the rehiring of the employees, including the eschewing of a mandatory six-month waiting period before they could be reemployed. The situation adds to the public’s growing resentment of

state employees. The ability to draw a pension from the state while drawing a salary from the same taxpayers simply doesn’t feel right to those who are paying said taxes. Because of that, Gregoire is wise to target the retire-rehire loophole as one requiring cleanup. According to a statement from the governor’s office: “The governor proposes to close this exception by disallowing retired employees from participating in these separate retirement plans. “Restrictions will also be imposed to not allow individuals to draw full-time retirement benefits as well as salary.” — The Columbian, Vancouver

In many instances, Peninsula Home Fund case managers at OlyCAP (nonprofit Olympic Community Action Programs) work with individuals or families to develop a plan to become financially stable — and avoid a recurrence of the emergency that prompted aid from the fund. And, as needed, Peninsula Home Fund contributions are often used in conjunction with money from other agencies, enabling OlyCAP to stretch the value of the contribution. (OlyCAP, the No. 1 emergency care agency in Jefferson and Clallam counties, oversees the Home Fund for the PDN, screening the applicants and distributing the funds.)

The nosy Nanny State It was a nefarious year for nettlesome nosy-bodies employed by the Nanny State. Here are the top power-grabbers of 2010 who just can’t leave us alone: New York City Michelle Mayor Michael Malkin Bloomberg. Two feet of snow paralyzed trains, buses, plows and emergency vehicles in the Big Apple this week. Perhaps if Bloomberg — the nation’s top self-appointed municipal food cop — spent more of his time on core government duties instead of waging incessant war on taxpayers’ salt, soda, transfat and sugar intakes, his battered bailiwick would have been better equipped to weather the storm. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. He proposed meddling mileage taxes, mused about a system to track drivers’ routes, lobbied for high-speed rail boondoggles and promoted a “livability initiative” to limit suburban growth and force dwellers into public transportation. Then America’s driving czar floated a plan earlier this fall to disable cell phones through some kind of centralized government mechanism. LaHood backed off that creepy crusade, but he is still intent on waging war against drivers who choose to use cell phones, entertainment systems and GPS devices on the road. Just last week, the unstoppable control freak proposed a new rule banning truck and bus drivers from any use of cell phones while driving — including emergency calls on hands-free devices. His anti-car agenda is stuck in overdrive. The city of Cleveland. The green police in this Midwestern metropolis made headlines in February with an intrusive plan to roll out electronic snooping trash cans — “smart” rubbish bins bugged with radio frequency identification chips and bar codes to monitor residents’ recycling habits. Violators can be fined $100. Federal stimulus money has
Friday, December 31, 2010
gone to fund similar programs in Dayton, Ohio. The technology originated in Germany, was adopted by ecoauthoritarians in England (where at least 500,000 trash cans are now embedded with snitch chips) and has spread across Europe. Welcome to the age of Bin Brother. The city of San Francisco. The city Board of Supervisors recently took the “Happy” out of McDonald’s Happy Meals by banning all restaurants from serving toys with children’s meals that exceed arbitrary limits on calories, fat, salt and sugar. Even the mayor of the People’s Republic of San Francisco opposes the latest food-control scheme. But the bossy City by the Bay continues to assault consumer freedom with bans on everything from plastic bags to pet sales and soda pop. By executive order this summer, Mayor Gavin Newsom outlawed Coke, Pepsi and Fanta Orange drinks from vending machines on city property. The decree dictates that “ample choices” of water, “soy milk, rice milk and other similar dairy or non dairy milk” must instead be offered. It’s not clear how vendors will be able to circumvent the city’s hostility toward plastic bottles. Maybe beverages will be served straight out of those noxiously trendy reusable cloth bags? The architects of Obamacare. After ramming a trillion-dollar package of unconstitutional federal health mandates down our throats, they said children and seniors would be saved, we could keep our doctors, costs would go down and the economy would be boosted. Reality: Premiums have continued to skyrocket. Insurers nationwide have dropped child-only plans in the individual market. Obamacare taxes forced the AARP to raise its members’ rates. Hospitals have stepped up layoffs and shutdowns. And millions of Americans have only been able to keep their doctors and coverage after their employers, unions or health providers begged the feds for special waivers. Heckuva job, health bureaucrats.
First lady Michelle Obama and Republican Mike Huckabee. Mrs. Obama first played the anti-childhood obesity card in September 2009, as a rationale for using her office to crusade for taxpayer subsidies supporting her hometown Chicago’s failed Olympics bid. Her argument: Kids would stay fat, lazy and uninspired if the Daley machine didn’t get its share of massive sports corporate welfare. Next came Mrs. O’s push for the $5 billion expansion of federal child nutrition programs. As I first reported in February, the legislation was a pet project of the Service Employees International Union, which seeks to swell the ranks of dawn-to-dusk yearround public school food service workers who organize under the progressive activist slogan “serving justice, and serving lunch.” In addition to school breakfast and lunch, the kiddie food patrol is now pushing subsidized dinner plans and summer food service to create a “stronger nutrition safety net.” Nanny State Republican Mike Huckabee, who used his bully pulpit position as Arkansas governor to campaign for Big Governmentendorsed “healthier living” in public schools and private life, naturally sided with Mrs. Obama — and took a swipe at Sarah Palin last week for criticizing the White House usurpation of parental responsibility and rights. Huckabee scoffed at the idea that the feds are “trying to force the government’s desires on people.” But school bake sales are already under siege, and Mrs. Obama’s childhood obesity task force has already called for new and dramatic controls on the marketing of unhealthy foods. Did Huckabee miss (or does he agree with) Mrs. Obama’s officious rallying cry on child nutrition: “We can’t just leave it up to parents”? God save us from more busybody bipartisanship in 2011.

Fishing, clams, crabs, oh my! THE WEATHER SHOULD cooperate this weekend to help ring in the New Year for outdoors enthusiasts. Cold but clear and dry conditions are making the rivers better for winter steelhead fishing while shellfish lovers can flock to the ocean beaches for two days of digging for razor clams. This is also the last weekend for crabbing until the middle of summer. And of course clear conditions could make it a winter wonderland on Hurricane Ridge. In addition, hunting seasons for ducks and geese run through Jan. 30 in most areas. So take your pick of activities North Olympic Peninsula outdoors lovers and start 2011 on the right foot.
Fishing for steelies Finally, the rains have stopped, the rivers have dropped and it’s a good time for anglers to hit the rivers for winter steelhead. “All rivers are dropping, which makes it really good for steelhead,” Brian Menkal of Brian’s Sporting Good and More (360-683-1959) in Sequim said. “It’s cold but the river conditions are getting better.” The hatchery steelhead run is slowing down but should still be good for a couple of more weeks, Menkal advised. The native or wild steelhead run starts in middle January, just about the time the hatchery run is petering out. “The hatchery run is still on but is slowing down while the big boys, the wild steelhead, are posed to come in,” Menkal said. “There is a good last week or so for hatchery steelhead, but then it is time to get ready for natives.” Kirt Hughes, regional fishery manager for Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, said winter hatchery steelhead fisheries are in full swing at a number of the region’s streams. “If the weather cooperates, steelhead fishing should be good throughout January,” he said. Anglers fishing the Quillayute and portions of the Bogachiel, Calawah, Hoh and Sol Duc rivers on the West End have a daily limit of three hatchery steelhead. Hughes reminds anglers that they will not be allowed to catch and keep wild steelhead on eight North Olympic Peninsula rivers until midFebruary. In early 2010, the annual opening date for wild steelhead retention was changed from Dec. 1 to Feb. 16 on the Bogachiel, Calawah, Clearwater, Dickey, Hoh, Quillayute, Quinault and Sol Duc rivers. Those eight rivers are the only waters in Washington where wild steelhead retention is allowed. The change, adopted by the Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission last February, was made to protect the early portion of the run, Hughes said. He noted, however, that anglers will still have an opportunity to catch and keep a wild fish during the peak of the return.
Dungeness medal The Dungeness River, not known for its fishing, gave up a couple of steelies this past week. “There’s not many steelheads, or any fish, in the Dungeness,” Menkal said. “But a couple were caught recently, which bucked the odds. “That was quite a feat. If medals were given in fishing, they should get them for catching those steelhead.” Turn

A memorable Holiday Locker goes out with a bang, carries UW to win By Bernie Wilson
The Associated Press
The Associated Press
Washington quarterback Jake Locker pulls away from Nebraska’s Lavonte David on his 25-yard touchdown run during the Holiday Bowl in San Diego on Thursday.
SAN DIEGO — Jake Locker bounced back from an injury and scored on a 25-yard run in the third quarter, and tailback Chris Polk ran for 177 yards and a score to help the Washington Huskies to a 19-7 win over the listless No. 17 Nebraska Cornhuskers in the Holiday Bowl on Thursday night. The Huskies (7-6) avenged a 56-21 loss to the Huskers (10-4) in Seattle on Sept. 18. The Cornhuskers piled up 533 yards of total offense in that game, including 383 rushing. While Washington was a winner in its first bowl game since 2002, the Huskers came out flat in their second straight Holiday Bowl appearance. They were manhandled on both sides of the line and imploded under 12 penalties for 102 yards. Washington outgained Nebraska 340 yards to 189, including 268 to 91 rushing. Locker, who passed up the NFL draft last spring to return for his senior season, capped the
opening drive of the second half with a 25-yard scoring run to give UW a 17-7 lead. He faked a handoff and then ran right, bouncing off a defender and staying on his feet to score. Locker ran 13 times for 83 yards. Polk had 34 carries. Locker was shaken up in the second quarter when he scrambled, slid headfirst and was hit helmet-to-helmet by Nebraska safety Austin Cassidy. Locker was on the ground for a few minutes before walking off on his own power. He was replaced by Keith Price for the rest of the series, which ended when a fourthdown run by Chris Polk was stuffed. Locker returned for the next series after safety Nate Fellner intercepted Taylor Martinez’s pass. The Huskies had to win their final three regular-season games to become bowl eligible. They got their first win in four trips to the Holiday Bowl. Turn
Riders dominate Renton PA girls roll to 8-1 record Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles girls basketball team held Renton to single digits in all four quarters to steamroll to a 33-point nonleague victory Thursday night. The Roughriders won 53-20 to improve to 8-1 this year, its only loss to Class 4A power Mount Tahoma a week ago. Because the Riders have been breezing through the Olympic League the past couple of years, coach Mike Knowles has been setting up strong nonleague competition to prepare Port Angeles for the postseason. That’s why Knowles scheduled Mount Tahoma last week and Renton on Thursday. Renton played in the 3A state tournament last year. Like Port Angeles, Renton dropped down to 2A this year. But the tough match-up never materialized. “They lost a lot of seniors from last year’s team,” Knowles said. “They are trying to build their program back up with young kids.” The Riders led 12-6 at the end of the first quarter and 22-9 at halftime. They increased the lead to 36-12 going into the final period. And that was without starting forward Mariah Frazier, who missed the game because she wasn’t feeling well. But there was some positive things to come out of the game. “They ran a match-up zone that we don’t see too much out here,” Knowles said. “It was good to play someone from the other side of the bridge.” Port Angeles standout star Jessica Madison ripped the nets for 31 points, just coming up short for 1,500 career points. She now has 1,498 career points and should break the

Peninsula College men claim 3rd Pirates nip Walla Walla at Clackamas tourney Peninsula Daily News
OREGON CITY, Ore. — The Peninsula College men’s basketball team claimed third place at the Clackamas Holiday Tournament on Thursday. The Pirates held off the Walla Walla Warriors 77-73 to improve to 5-4 on the year. Peninsula went 2-1 in the tourney, beat-
ing Blue Mountain 86-75 on Tuesday, losing 104-92 to host Clackamas on Wednesday and beating Walla Walla on the last day. Peninsula coach Lance Von Vogt was happy about the results of all three games. The Pirates were ahead of Clackamas by five points at halftime and kept the lead for most of the second half before their big players got into foul trouble. “They won the game by hitting their free throws down the stretch,” Von Vogt said. “Clackamas is the two-time defending NWAACC champion and we battled right with them on their own home court.”
Against Walla Walla, DeShaun Freeman led the Pirates with 20 points and 11 rebounds while four other players had double figures. Mitrell Clark had 16 points, followed by Sammeon Waller with 14, Jerry Johnson with 12 and Thad Vinson with 11. Freeman also had a blocked shot and a steal in the game. Freeman and Clark made the all-tournament team. Aaron Corsi led the Warriors with 22 points while Jay Payne and Jason Smith had 17 each.

Briefly . . . Student athletes of the week
The Associated Press
Seattle quarterback Charlie Whitehurst sets to pass against the Atlanta Falcons in the second half on Dec. 19 in Seattle. It looks like Whitehurst will be starting Sunday night’s game.
Hawks prepping Whitehurst to start against St. Louis By Tim Booth
The Associated Press
RENTON — Well, at least Seattle’s Charlie Whitehurst isn’t getting peppered with questions about making his first NFL start. Now it’s all about his second start — with a division title on the line. “That’s the only thing positive that came out of that game,” Whitehurst joked. With questions lingering about Matt Hasselbeck’s health, Whitehurst is prepping to make the second start of his career Sunday night when Seattle hosts St. Louis with the NFC West title at stake. But it’s not as simple as Whitehurst starting and Hasselbeck sitting. Coach Pete Carroll, offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates and seemingly everyone else is refusing to close the book on Hasselbeck being out for the division deciding matchup. Hasselbeck strained his
hip in the first quarter last week against Tampa Bay. From the start, Carroll said he’s preparing as though Hasselbeck won’t be available against the Rams and that Whitehurst will be the one asked to lead Seattle to its first division title since 2007. For his part, Whitehurst said he’s not worrying about Hasselbeck’s status. “It’s not in my mind. If it happens, it happens,” Whitehurst said. “I’m prepared to play and start and you do what the coach says, but I’m ready to start.” But will he? Hasselbeck hasn’t participated in practice Wednesday or Thursday. Carroll indicated the decision on Hasselbeck’s hip might not be made until Saturday or early Sunday. “Matt is getting healthy — he’s moving around better every day,” Bates said. “It’ll be interesting to see what happens on game time.”
Based on track record, Hasselbeck would clearly be the better choice in essentially a play-in game. He’s got nine career playoff starts, versus Whitehurst who has just one career start — and a mess of a start at that. Whitehurst’s first start came in Week 9 against the New York Giants, a 41-7 blowout loss where Whitehurst went 12-of-23 for 113 yards, with one touchdown and two interceptions. He’s played three times since, all in some sort of mop-up or injury replacement duty. Whitehurst replaced Hasselbeck two weeks ago against Atlanta and played well, scoring on a 1-yard TD run in the fourth quarter that prompted chants of “Charlie” from the fans who remained. But he followed that up with an unimpressive 11-for-18 for 66 yards in three quarters last week against Tampa Bay after Hasselbeck was injured.
Whitehurst missed on his first four throws and never got Seattle’s offense going. “The first bubble pass he threw kind of sprayed it against Tampa, and things didn’t happen for him,” Bates said. “Then we went three-and-out, three-andout, and it’s a game of momentum, and we never got it.” Whitehurst has remained a mystery for many Seattle fans. He was brought in from San Diego to push Hasselbeck for the starting job, but never truly threatened the veteran.

The ultimate opportunity may come Sunday night and with a postseason berth at stake. “He looked excited, you kind of feel him,” Seattle receiver Mike Williams said. “You can kind of sense he’s ready to take this challenge on and take advantage of this stage and opportunity.”

Stanford snaps UConn’s win streak at 90 The Associated Press
STANFORD, Calif. — Stanford really does have UConn’s number. Top-ranked Connecticut’s record 90-game winning streak in women’s basketball ended Thursday night when No. 9 Stanford
outplayed the Huskies from the start in a 71-59 victory at Maples Pavilion — where the Cardinal have their own streak going. Stanford hasn’t lost in 52 games at home. The Cardinal took an early 13-point lead, never trailed and didn’t let the mighty Hus-
kies back in it after halftime in this one. They kept pounding the ball inside and banging the boards. UConn fans accustomed to watching coach Geno Auriemma’s team blow past opponents hadn’t seen a loss since the 2008 NCAA semifinals — Stanford got
the Huskies that time, too, 82-73 in the Final Four at Tampa, Fla. “At some point reality had to set in, and today reality set in,” Auriemma said. “I’m not destroyed about it. Winning that many games in a row, it’s unheard of.”
$100,000 for trip The Associated Press
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — The New York Jets are paying for their sideline shenanigans. The team was fined $100,000 by the NFL on Thursday for violating league rules when assistant coach Sal Alosi ordered players to form a sideline wall, then tripped Miami’s Nolan Carroll during a punt return earlier this month. The discipline was in response to the actions of Alosi, the Jets’ strength and conditioning coach, and comments made by special teams coach Mike Westhoff, who accused other teams of employing similar sideline wall tactics. “We will comply with the league’s decision,” the Jets said in a statement. Alosi “placed players in a prohibited area on the sideline to impede an opposing team’s special teams players and gain a competitive advantage,” according to a statement by the league. The NFL called it “a competitive violation as well as a dangerous tactic.” Five inactive players were ordered by Alosi to stand together nearly shoulder-to-shoulder on the sideline in New York’s 10-6 loss to Miami on Dec. 12. Tight end Jeff Cumberland, one of the inactive players, said Alosi had told them to do that all season. Alosi was first suspended without pay for the remainder of the season and fined $25,000 by the Jets for tripping Carroll, before being suspended indefinitely by the team after acknowledging he ordered the players to form the wall. The league fine caps one of several incidents for which the playoff-bound Jets have made negative
headlines during a wacky season. From coach Rex Ryan’s foul language on HBO’s “Hard Knocks” to another NFL investigation by the league in September after reporter Ines Sainz, of TV Azteca, said she felt uncomfortable in the team’s locker room, the Jets seemingly have been in the news constantly. As a result of the Sainz incident, the NFL developed a workplace conduct program, underwritten by Jets owner Woody Johnson. A few weeks later, wide receiver Braylon Edwards was arrested and charged with drunken driving, a case that is still pending. Last January, Ryan was fined $50,000 by the team after he was caught on a cell phone camera flipping his middle finger at a fan during a mixed-martial arts competition in Sunrise, Fla. An embarrassed Ryan also had to answer questions about a foot-fetish report posted by the sports website Deadspin last week, saying repeatedly it’s “a personal matter.” The Jets also have been involved with the Brett Favre scandal. The Minnesota quarterback was fined $50,000 by the league on Wednesday for failing to cooperate with its lengthy investigation of inappropriate messages and lewd photos he allegedly sent to former Jets game-day employee Jenn Sterger in 2008, when both were employed by the team. Both Ryan and Westhoff have previously denied any knowledge of the wall tactic set up by Alosi, despite some media and fans speculating that they both must have been involved.

The underdog Broncos stayed in contention for the national title all year with a program that spends a fraction of what the big boys do. The tab: $6.85 million for an average of $564 a student for a program that ended up winning the MAACO Bowl this year. While football also brings in millions, the spending on the sport has given plenty of ammunition to critics of big-time college sports.

The numbers grow every year: 35 bowl games, 70 teams — the morphing of what was once a New Year’s Day tradition into one that kicks off in mid-December and finishes closer to Martin Luther King Day than New Year’s Day. And if those bowl-season stats seem bloated, try this: Ohio State and Alabama each spend more than $31 million a year to run their football programs, while nine other teams closing out the season at one of those 35 bowl games spend $20 million plus. The cheapest bowl-bound program? That would be Troy, winner of the New Orleans Bowl on the first postseason weekend, at just a shade over $5 million. That’s nearly $23 million less than they spend an hour away at top-ranked Auburn, where the Tigers are playing for the national title this season. Auburn’s opponent in the BCS game, Oregon, spends $18 million — 16th among the bowl-bound schools. The statistics come from the Department of Education, which has required universities to submit the amount they spend on sports since 2000 as part of the Equity in Athletics Disclosure Act. With that information, the Equity in Athletics Data Analysis Cutting Tool was created. And while the database comes with disclaimers and caveats stating that there are no hard-and-fast guidelines as to what schools count under the term “expenses” and “revenue,” these are the numbers they report to the federal government. After OSU ($31.7 million) and ’Bama ($31.1 million), the rest of top five biggest spenders include Notre Dame, Auburn and LSU, according to the database.
Most schools’ figures were for the fiscal year that ended June 30. Broken down on a perstudent basis, the Irish spend the most, the database says. Their trip to the Sun Bowl is coming at a price of $3,531 for each of Notre Dame’s 8,351 undergraduates — an overall budget of $29.4 million — while TCU spends $2,822 per student to run its Rose Bowl-bound football program. For all the money they fork out, at least the TCUs and LSUs of the world are going somewhere this season. Texas, last year’s national

PORT ANGELES, WA — This week, a consignment of reprocessed vehicles, deed vehicles and dealer overstocks will be eliminated in what could be the largest automotive sales event in Washington’s history.
Special elimination vehicles will be clearly marked with two prices. The first price is the retail price. This is the price that you would expect to see if you went used car shopping at local car dealers. The second price is the drastically reduced elimination price. This is the price that the vehicle will be sold for. This type of pricing will make it quick and easy to find the car you want at a price you can afford. The selection of cars, trucks, minivans, sport utility vehicles and motorcycles will be huge.
Truckloads of cars, trucks, minivans, sport utility vehicles and motorcycles from around the Northwest have been assembled on the property of Koenig Chevrolet Subaru, 3501 E. Highway 101 (across from Walmart), in Port Angeles for this special 5-day event with over 150 vehicles to choose from. During this sale, financing assistance will not be a problem. Local banks, finance companies and credit groups have agreed to help buyers finance these vehicles regardless of past credit history.
Buyers will find best-selling models from Chevrolet, Ford, Dodge, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac. Popular import models from Subaru, Mercedes, Kia, Hyundai, Honda, Toyota and Nissan, as well as scooters and motorcycles by Honda, Vespa, Piaggio, Moto Guzzi and Harley Davidson will also be available. There will be approximately 20 vehicles priced below $8,995 to choose from.
According to the Event Finance Director, because all of the vehicles will be sold below the Kelley Blue Book value, little to no down payment will be necessary to obtain preferred financing. Even buyers with less than perfect credit will be able to obtain on-the-spot credit approval. This is a great opportunity to get a fantastic price and get the best financing terms available.
If you or anyone that you know is in the market for a great car, truck, minivan, sport utility vehicle, scooter or motorcycle, then you need to make plans to attend this special sale this week.
The Event Coordinator for this event said, “We will help the banks and finance companies by selling these vehicles. Banks would prefer selling to the general public at a great price rather than taking them to private auctions where the dealer buys them and turns
This special event will be held for 5 days only beginning this Monday, Dec 27th. Doors open at 8:30 AM. For further information, buyers are encouraged to call the Reprocessed Sale Hotline at:

Sunday historical society Events mark new lecture focuses on Victoria year across Peninsula Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Little-known facts and stories about Victoria will be presented at the Clallam County Historical Society’s next History Tales presentation Sunday. Ross Crockford, editor of Monday Magazine in the city across the Strait of Juan de Fuca in British Columbia, will speak at 2:30 p.m. in the Port Angeles City Council chambers at 321 E. Fifth St. Crockford, who writes
the “Unknown City” column in Monday Magazine, will talk about the “quirky” aspects of Victoria. He will give an overview of Victoria’s development and concerns from its founding that still bedevil it today.
Tourist destination He also will speak about Victoria’s history as a tourist destination and describe some of the odd characters who have passed through and form much of the
local mythology. Crockford is a former trial lawyer who turned to journalism in the 1990s when he started working at The Prague Post, an English-language newspaper in Eastern Europe. In 1998, he became the editor of Victoria’s Monday Magazine. In 2006, he wrote Victoria: The Unknown City, launching his column. History Tales is free and open to the public. For more information, phone the historical society at 360-452-2662.

June Williams, who organized the first Neah Bay
plunge in 2001, said an average of 25 people take part. The only rule is that participants must go all the way into the water, wetting their hair and faces. Williams took her first plunge when she was seriously ill with asthma. She decided she wanted to experience a polar bear dip at least once in her life. “I got well real fast,” said Williams, now 63. “I’ve been getting stronger and stronger every year.”
Williams has only missed one Neah Bay plunge in the last decade. She said she enjoys starting the new year fresh, encouraging kids to participate in drug- and alcoholfree activities and meeting new people along the way. ■ Lake Pleasant — 10 a.m. at Lake Pleasant Community Beach County Park, accessed by driving on West Lake Pleasant Road. What started as a whim five years ago has turned into a growing group of

Hirsch said about eight friends took part in the first New Year’s Day plunge at Lake Pleasant. It has since grown to about 30 strong.

Gadget show will have Gardening void: Apple and its iPad series slated Pesticides, petals — and Andrew May
Most others to gather in Las Vegas
Peninsula Daily News
By Peter Svensson The Associated Press
What do you call it when you have 120,000 people and an elephant in the room? The International Consumer Electronics Show, which kicks off next week in Las Vegas. The elephant is Apple Inc. It won’t be at the show this year, but its tablet computer, the iPad, is the most important new product for an industry that needs to once again excite consumers. Sales of the iPad have been strong since its April debut, and the whole industry is now trying to mimic Apple’s success. With the iPad, Apple single-handedly cracked the code for the tablet, a device that dozens of manufacturers have tried to take to the masses for two decades, with little success. Apple itself doesn’t do trade shows. When Apple has new products to reveal, such as iPads or iPhones, it stages its own events. But nearly every other company in the industry will be there for CES, which runs this coming Thursday, Jan. 6, to Sunday, Jan. 9, and is the largest trade show of any kind in the Americas.
Tablet time A good many of them will show off their tablets — computing slabs with touchsensitive screens. Big names expected to do so include Motorola Inc. and Dell Inc. DisplaySearch analyst Richard Semenza estimated that a hundred different tablet models are in development, though not all of them will reach store shelves. Competing tablets will have a hard time catching up to Apple’s lead, at least this year. Certainly, no one managed to do so last year, even though a lot of manufacturers, including Dell, brought out tablets. Samsung did have some success with its Galaxy Tab, but sales didn’t come close to the iPad’s. “For the next year or two, we expect there to be a lot of false starts, failed attempts, and disasters,” Richard Shim, another DisplaySearch analyst, said in a blog post. Apple sold 7.4 million iPads through September, in the device’s first six months on sale.
The Associated Press
Microsoft Entertainment and Devices Division President Robbie Bach shares the stage during CEO Steve Ballmer’s keynote address at the 2009 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. That means they’re already outselling Apple’s Mac computers, but not iPods or iPhones. Analyst Shaw Wu at Kaufman Bros. believes Apple sold another 6.1 million iPads in the holiday quarter, and there’s every indication that it was a popular holiday gift. Even some retailers that don’t normally sell electronics, including TJ Maxx, carried the iPad. Apple’s would-be competitors include Motorola, which has been hinting that it will show off its first tablet at the show. Dell and Acer Inc. are also expected to show tablets. Microsoft Corp. CEO Steve Ballmer will likely touch on tablets in his keynote speech Wednesday, an annual fixture the eve of the show’s opening. The electronics industry’s need for a hot new product is especially strong this year. Overall, the recent holiday season was the best for retailers since 2007, but electronics sales were up just 1.2 percent from the previous year, according to MasterCard SpendingPulse, which tracks spending across all transactions, including cash. They’re still down 10 percent from pre-recession levels. For about five years, the industry has been bolstered by Americans rushing out to buy flat-panel TVs. Now, that rush is slowing, as 61 percent of households already have such sets, according to Leichtman Research Group. Meanwhile, sales of other products that have driven growth, such as GPS units, picture frames and digital cameras, have tapered off. The people who really want them already have them, while the rest make do with their cell phones instead. Other technologies that have been promoted at CES

She will discuss seasonal challenges and gardenerdriven changes that can “make every garden a moveable feast.” ■ Jan. 22, “How Understanding Pesticide Regulations Helps Everyday Decision-Making” with Catherine Daniels. She will discuss how organic pest products, citronella candles, pool chemicals and more are regulated as pesticides in this state, which is one of the most highly regulated in the nation when it comes to pesticides. Whether a “spray and pray” user, an “organic first, conventional as last resort” advocate or an “organic only” gardener, one can learn how pesticides are
reviewed, approved, regulated and recommended to make better choices and to educate other gardeners. Daniels directs the Washington State Pest Management Resource Service based at Washington State University’s Puyallup extension. ■ Jan. 29, “Big Ideas for Small Gardens” with Marty Wingate. Learn how small spaces can hold impressive gardens and how to overcome the challenge of fitting the pieces together to make every inch count. Wingate is a Seattlebased writer and speaker who has a master’s degree in urban horticulture from the University of Washington. She has written for national gardening magazines and authored three books, including Big Ideas for Northwest Small Gardens. ■ Feb. 5, “A Year in Flowers: Seasonal, Local & Sustainable Flower Growing & Design” with Debra Prinzing.

their Reynolds country by another route” (Matthew 2:10-12). I don’t imagine their country changed much while they were gone, but I am certain the magi changed. They had sought him and found him and worshipped him. Their lives would never be the same. And surely their joy did not stay behind in Bethlehem. The shepherds and the magi returned, and so must we. Holidays and vacations are great, but either we return, or our family and guests return. Return to home. Return to work. Return to school. Return to . . . life. But like the shepherd and the magi, we can return to life differently. We can enter the new year glorifying and praising God for he who was born in Bethlehem. Optimism should reign. His tidings of comfort and joy are not seasonal; they are “new every morning” (Lamentations 3:23). The melodious cries of “Joy to the world! The Lord is come!” must not be packed away with the lights and tinsel or tossed out with last year’s calendar. The joyful message of his birth and his life must be carried by his people returning to everyday life all year of every year until He returns again. We must resist returning to the routines of life with closed hearts, hearts that bury joy or optimism. If our hearts remain closed, we are no different than the inn that had no room for his birth. I hope you had a merry Christmas and that your merriness will be carried into a truly happy new year. With the life of Jesus born in our hearts by faith, we can enter the new year optimistically looking for new opportunities to express his grace and love with our words and lives. We can make the world different because he has made us different.

Issues of faith
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — Shiite Muslims in Malaysia have made a rare public plea for authorities to let them legally worship amid fears of a clampdown on outlawed religious groups, a human rights official said Tuesday. Malaysian religious officials allow only Sunni Islam to be openly practiced by Muslims, who make up nearly two-thirds of this Southeast Asian country’s population. All other Islamic denominations, including the Shiite, are considered illegal. Sunni Islam is the world’s largest branch of the religion, followed by Shiite Islam, which is practiced mostly in Iran, Iraq and Bahrain, though there are sizable minority populations in many Muslim countries.
Detained more than 200 Islamic authorities detained more than 200 Shiite Muslims at a prayer meeting recently in central
Malaysia in one of the largest recent mass arrests of its kind. Government-linked newspapers have since published articles warning people to avoid illegal sects. About 30 Shiite community representatives handed a petition to Malaysia’s government-backed Human Rights Commission this week seeking its help to curb any further crackdown, said Muhammad Sha’ani Abdullah, a member of the rights watchdog. Islamic department officials who could comment on the issue were not immediately available Tuesday.
Face stiff challenge The Shiites face a stiff challenge because authorities have repeatedly defended their policies against non-Sunni teachings as necessary to preserve public stability and the integrity of Islamic teachings. Nevertheless, some Malaysian Islamic scholars support the right of Shiites to practice their beliefs.

Death row inmate moved to solitary gets court nod By Rachel La Corte The Associated Press
OLYMPIA — The state Supreme Court ruled Thursday that it was OK for corrections officials to move a death row inmate to solitary confinement after a special housing unit that allowed him more privileges was closed due to budget cuts. In a 7-2 ruling, the high court dismissed a petition by Jonathan Gentry, who argued that the move unlawfully changed the terms of his sentence. Gentry was sentenced to death in 1991 for killing a 12-year-old girl in Kitsap County. Under Department of
Corrections regulations, after a year in solitary confinement, qualified inmates can be transferred to another unit where they are allowed daily contact with other inmates and family contact visits. However, that special housing unit was closed in 2009 due to budget cuts, and Gentry argued that his return to solitary confinement was a constitutionally impermissible increase in the severity of his punishment. The majority, lead by Chief Justice Barbara Madsen, said neither the state nor U.S. constitutions create a “liberty interest in a particular form of prison housing, absent allegations
of cruel and unusual punishment in violation of the Eighth Amendment, which Gentry does not assert.” The majority wrote that housing in the special unit is a privilege that can end through no fault of the prisoner, including budget cuts. And because all death row inmates start out in solitary confinement, being returned there does not create a harsher sentence than they first faced.
Floor not a weapon In another decision Thursday, the state’s high court agreed with a martial artist who said he didn’t use a casino floor as a weapon.
The court reversed the assault conviction of James Michael Marohl, who was accused of forcing a drunken man onto the floor of the Little Creek Casino in Shelton, causing minor injuries and breaking the man’s prosthetic arm. At his trial, the prosecutor argued that an arm lock and taking the man to the floor met the law’s requirement of using objects likely to produce bodily harm. But the unanimous high court ruling said that definition doesn’t include a bare arm or a floor — unless a victim is repeatedly slammed against it — and that didn’t happen in this case.

Snow is removed at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York on Monday.
Marooned in airports, some find quick solutions online A digital fast lane via Twitter feeds The New York Times
NEW YORK — Some travelers stranded by the great snowstorm of 2010 this week discovered that when all else fails, Twitter might be the best way to book a seat home. While the airlines’ reservation lines required hours of waiting — if people could get through at all — savvy travelers were able to book new reservations, get flight information and track lost luggage. And they could complain, too. Since Monday, nine Delta Air Lines agents with special Twitter training have been rotating shifts to help
travelers wired enough to know how to “dm,” or send a direct message. Many other airlines are doing the same as a way to help travelers cut through the confusion of a storm that grounded thousands of flights.
Stranded for hours At least 28 flights, carrying thousands of passengers, became stranded on the tarmac at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, one for close to 11 grueling hours, in the aftermath of this week’s paralyzing blizzard, officials said. The flights had one thing in common — they all began outside the United States. This year, federal officials enacted a rule that penalizes airlines with hefty fines if planes are kept on the tarmac for more than three hours.
But the new rule applies only to flights that begin and end in the United States. The Transportation Department has been considering expanding the rule to include international flights, and the strandings could force the agency to act. “It was horrible,” said Shoham Elazar, 24, a dental student from Miami who arrived at Kennedy on Tuesday on Turkish Airlines Flight 1 from Istanbul. After a flight of about 10 hours, the plane sat on the tarmac for more than six hours before it could unload.

Synthetic pot OLYMPIA — The state pharmacy board has voted to adopt a rule that would ban the sale and possession of synthetic marijuana. The board’s emergency rule would mirror new Federal Drug Enforcement Administration rules banning five chemicals used to make synthetic marijuana. The federal ban went into effect Dec. 24 and will last at least a year while officials consider a permanent ban. The state rule won’t go into effect until next month. Synthetic marijuana is sold in smoke shops as incense, but health officials say it is an intoxicant when burned and inhaled. It is sold under names like K-2, Spice and Black Mamba. State officials said a state rule is a more effective tool for law enforcement than the federal ban.

“Consumer protection starts with an informed shopper,” Mike Kreidler, state insurance commissioner, said Thursday. “And getting the information has never been easier.” The insurance commissioner’s website, www. insurance.wa.gov, now includes a “consumer toolkit” with information on different types of insurance; online filing — and tracking — of complaints against an insurance company; online filing of complaints against an insurance agent or broker; and a new system to look up contact information, licensing history, past violations and consumer complaints against agents or companies.
WASHINGTON — The average rate on 30-year fixed mortgages rose this week to the highest level in seven months. Freddie Mac said the rate increased to 4.86 percent from 4.81 percent last week. It hit a 40-year low of 4.17 percent last month. The average rate on 15-year loans rose to 4.2 percent, up from 4.15 percent, and the highest Peninsula Daily News reading in six months. and The Associated Press Rates have been rising since November. Many expect the tax-cut plan will fuel economic growth and increase inflation. Yields tend to rise on fears of inflation, and mortgage rates track yields on the 10-year Treasury note.

He expects the economy to generate 100,000 to 150,000 jobs a month by spring, up from an average 86,500 a month in 2010. That’s an improvement but still not enough to cause a big drop in the unemployment rate. To Paul Kasriel, chief economist at Northern Trust, fewer people applying for unemployment benefits suggests the unemployment rate will slip from 9.8 percent in November to 9.7 percent early next year; that would mean about 150,000 fewer unemployed.
The Conference Board’s Goldstein said the unemployment rate might actually rise for a few months as an increase in job openings lures even more job seekers back into the labor market. He doesn’t expect the unemployment rate to start dropping until mid-2011 and said it will finish the year above 9 percent. A survey released this month by the Business Roundtable found that 45 percent of big company CEOs planned to add jobs over the next six months, up from 31 percent in the third quarter; just 18 percent planned to cut jobs. A survey by the staffing firm Manpower found that companies are more optimistic about hiring than they’ve been in two years. “We’re going to start to see jobs added, but slowly,” said Manpower CEO Jeff Joerres.

WASHINGTON — Far fewer people are applying for unemployment benefits as the year ends, raising hopes for a healthier job market in 2011. Applications are at their lowest level since July 2008, the Labor Department says. They fell to 388,000 in the week ending Dec. 25, bringing the four-week average to 414,000. Until mid-October, the four-week average had been stuck above 450,000 most of the year. Economists say the number of people applying for unemployment benefits predicts where the job market will go over the next few months — so much so that they use this data to help forecast economic growth. “We’re starting to see a pickup in job growth,” said
Conference Board economist Kenneth Goldstein. “We may even get to a point, conceivably by spring, where the consumer is going to say that it no longer feels like we’re still in a recession.”

around the country spent about $10 billion on retail goods on Sunday and Monday — but that an additional $1 billion was lost because of the snowstorm that struck much of the East Coast. In regions other than the East Coast, visits to retailers continued to rise. In the Midwest, South and West, foot traffic to retailers rose 38.6 percent on Sunday compared with Sunday a year earlier, which was Dec. 27. This year’s Christmas shopping season was the best since before the recession. Many of the after-Christmas sales are driven by people who want to exchange or return gifts, or use up gift cards, and stores often put in new merchandise or special discounts to get them to spend extra while they are in the store.

in growing numbers. Their beauty is part of the problem, stoking a mystique around wild horses that has made them a hard problem to talk about. Like feral cats, the horses multiply at a prodigious rate. With no natural predators, and these days, no market for purchase, the herds are estimated at about 12,000 animals and growing. That’s up from about 500 animals in the 1950s; 2,500 in the 1990s, and more than 4,500 in 2006. Carrying capacity of the tribe’s rangeland was about 1,000 horses in 2007, and it’s significantly less than that today, because of continued degradation from overgrazing, said Jim Stephenson, big-game biologist and wild-horse project leader for the Yakama Nation. By now, deer are mostly gone from several of the game units he helps manage for the tribe, Stephenson said, because of competition from horses. The tribe is also worried about how grazing pressure from horses is affecting its efforts to re-establish populations of sage grouse, and reintroduce pronghorn ante-

SEATTLE — Horse people hope the new year will bring a solution to an old problem: too many horses. A horse summit planned for the first week of the year is expected to draw to Las Vegas representatives from Northwest tribes, federal agencies and conservation groups, as well as wildlife advocates, and horse people vexed by too many horses with no market to cull the herds. “It’s bad and getting worse,” said Sue Wallis, a Wyoming legislator and member of United Horsemen, a Wyoming-based nonprofit organizing the summit. She backs development of a plant in Wyoming where horses can be slaughtered for human consumption — a solution she says is the humane and ethical solution to the problem. “We are not just some meat-industry schmucks,” she said of slaughter supporters. “What we need is humane and regulated horse processing in the U.S. where we can control it, and we can set really high standards. “We are horse people concerned about the wellbeing of the horse.”
Talks scheduled The Yakama, Warm Springs, Shoshone-Bannock, Paiute, Crow, Apache, Navajo and Pueblo tribes are among those expected at next week’s summit to talk about horse troubles, as herds keep multiplying on tribal lands, destroying a fragile balance of land and wildlife. The horse has proved tricky to reckon with: Neither wildlife nor livestock intentionally grown for slaughter, growing horse populations have defied a

Slaughter industry While the slaughter industry is still technically legal in this country, a congressional ban on spending federal money to pay inspectors of horse carcasses intended for human consumption, primarily overseas, killed the industry. Populations have been building ever since, as the bottom fell out of the market that helped tribes and other horse managers keep numbers in check. Today, horses are trucked to Canada and Mexico for slaughter, and many more are overpopulating public and tribal lands, to the det-

riment, land managers say, of wildlife, native plants and the health of the range. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) estimates it has nearly 12,000 more horses on its lands than the range can support, and the agency is feeding more than 11,400 animals kept in corrals it can’t find adopters for. The BLM spent $36.9 million in 2010 alone just to feed and care for horses it has rounded up and confined in corrals and put out to pasture in longterm holding facilities in the Midwest. And the cost is going up. United Horsemen members want to see a solution in 2011, Wallis said. Tribes, too, are seeking an answer.

Originally of Spanish origin, the herds today include descendants of domestic animals turned out by homesteaders, and lately, horses dumped by people too hammered by the recession and high cost of hay to keep their animals.

You have so much going for you that it would be a shame to ruin your chance to achieve the goals most important to you. Love can lead to a commitment and a long-term partnership as well as a prosperous future. 5 stars

DUNGENESS — As a kid growing up here in the 1940s, Art Rogers recalls days spent on his grandfather’s 42-acre farm and log-paddling with friends from Cline Spit to the Dungeness Lighthouse. In those days, the Dungeness School’s classrooms brimmed with children. Traveling to Sequim was considered a treat. And for Rogers, summers were spent working for $30 a month plus room and board on the small family farms all across the Dungeness Valley. Rogers will share these and other memories of his youth in Dungeness next Friday, Jan. 7, in “Remembering Dungeness,” the first class in Peninsula College’s history series at the Old Dungeness Schoolhouse, at Towne and Anderson roads north of Sequim. Rogers will lead the first hour at 10 a.m.; then noted local histo-
Series schedule The complete series schedule, including class topics, is also available on the Sequim Museum & Arts Center website at www.macsequim.org. Other topics in the eight-week lecture series include “The Manis Mastodon Archeological Site” with Clare Manis Hatler, “Barns & Farms: Then &
Now” with Catherine Bennett and Bob Clark, and “Clallam County Schools, East to West” with Irene Wyman, Kathy Monds and Esther Nelson. Rogers, who still lives in Dungeness and is proprietor of Art’s Barber Shop in Sequim, said his history talk brought back a flood of fond memories, of a Dungeness where “everybody knew everybody” and entire families would go ice skating on Pettett’s Pond in the winter. Rogers will also recall events such as the Dungeness River flood of 1949 and the U.S. Army detachment at Dungeness in the 1940s. “It was probably the most interesting life you could lead, being out in the dairy farm land. It was seven days a week, 12 months out of the year,” he recalled. “It was just a very wonderful life.”
Mad Maggi a clothing boutique
PORT TOWNSEND — Tonight is for art play, dancing, sharing food and drink, and maybe some face-painting. So believe Aletia Alvarez and Allison Dey, codirectors of the Madrona MindBody Institute, the 3-year-old dance center at Fort Worden State Park, 200 Battery Way. To wrap up 2010 and celebrate the fresh year on the horizon, Madrona and its crew are inviting people of all ages to an art and dance jam from 6 p.m. till 10 p.m. Admission is a suggested contribution of $8 to $15. Art starts the evening, with plentiful supplies filling Madrona’s upstairs room usually used for yoga classes. It’ll be a well-furnished art environment, with collage ingredients, glue, scissors and such, Alvarez said. Local artist Gloria Lamson will be helping to set it up, along with Laura McKim, Caleb Peacock and Isabelle Luna of Port Townsend. “And Allison loves to face-paint,” Alvarez added, so those who want a new look for New Year’s Eve can have Dey do some decorating. A potluck dinner is set for 7:30 p.m., and participants are invited to bring dishes to share as well as their own beverages, Alvarez said. Throughout the evening, disc jockeys will rotate, playing music from all over the world. Alvarez, who leads the Soulfull Sunday morning dances at Madrona, will be one of the DJs, as will Dey, Luna and Peacock. “It’s just a fun, clean way to bring in the new year,” said Alvarez. The art play and danc-
rian Doug McInnes will give a talk titled “Sequim Yesterday.” This is the start of the college’s Museum Lecture Series, to be held from 10 a.m. till noon every Friday through Feb. 25. Registration for this non-credit community education course, No. S-SF 041, is open now. To sign up and find out more, phone Peninsula College at 360-452-9277 or visit www. PenCol.edu.

Since then the Bottom Line Duo has continued to travel the world, to play in Ireland, France, Germany, Spain, Canada and Mexico. The spark for all of it came that day they sat and listened on the school-gym floor, Spencer says. He and Traci did another trip last May that held great meaning: They performed at elementary schools across Clallam County, from Clallam Bay to Sequim, on a tour supported by the Port Angeles Symphony Orchestra. “It was a blast,” Traci says. “Hopefully we’re passing it on. Hopefully we’re inspiring the kids,” while affirming the value of music education. The Bottom Line Duo also performed with the Port Angeles Symphony and at the Juan de Fuca Fes-

New asphalt is relatively smooth but time and wear exaggerates the coarse texture of the road’s surface causing your tires to absorb most of the impact. Siping gives your tires a Micro-Flexibility reducing the wear on your tire’s carcass and sidewalls. This effect not only increases tire life, but will result in a smoother ride.

Siping will not adversely affect your tires performance in any way. The tread on your tires retains all of its strength due to the patented spiral cutting process. This process leaves uncut areas known as tie bars keeping your tread strong.
WE RESURFACE BRAKE
There are many important parts that wear out in your brake system. This is why we don’t just replace your brake pads and shoes. It’s also why we can stand behind our brake service with the best brake warranty (Free Replacement 25,000 Miles – Parts & Labor).

FREE BRAKE INSPECTIONS
A quality light truck/SUV tire that provides outstanding traction during harsh weather conditions.
The tread surface on your tire is made up of many smaller surfaces known as “Tread Blocks.” The reason for so many surfaces is especially important when it comes to icy or wet road conditions. The “Tread Blocks” get their gripping power not from their many smooth surfaces, but from the even more numerous sharp surrounding edges. Siping provides more of these gripping edges.

why les schwab brakes? Professionally Trained Technicians
Research has shown that the most effective braking power occurs immediately prior to losing traction. Siping extends the window allowed for maximum braking power by giving the existing tread a helping hand. In the examples above, notice how the siped tire has dozens more grippin g edges.
