Freshwater Bay gets 6 inches; more expected through today By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News

A late-season snowstorm that snarled traffic, blocked roads and highways and dumped several inches of powder on the North Olympic Peninsula on Wednesday will continue though this afternoon, forecasters say. The National Weather Service’s winter storm warning is in effect until 10 a.m. today. Danny Mercer, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Seattle, said the Strait of Juan de Fuca region would get another 3 inches to 6 inches of snow overnight, followed by 2 inches to 3 inches this morning. “The heaviest snow will be in the central and eastern part of the Strait,” Mercer said.

“But it’s snowing pretty much everywhere.” Heavy bursts of snow came in localized bands Wednesday, resulting in variable accumulations. Weather Service spotters reported 6 inches of snow on the ground in Freshwater Bay and 4 inches at the Elwha Dam as of 4 p.m. A spotter in Port Townsend reported 5 inches of snowfall in a three-hour period that ended at 3:30 p.m. Another spotter said it snowed 5 inches in a span of 2 hours and 15 minutes four miles west of Sequim. Olympic National Park reported 97 inches of snow at the Hurricane Ridge sensor with another 6 inches to 12 inches of accumulation forecast today. Turn

Two-car, head-on collision occurs at Morse Creek curve By Paige Dickerson Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — A two-car, head-on collision killed an 83-year-old man on the curve at Morse Creek on U.S. Highway 101 during a snowstorm Wednesday. Hugh McLennan of Port Angeles died at the scene after he crossed the centerline and hit a car driven by Rexx Ingalls, 20, of Sequim at 1 p.m., the State Patrol said. Ingalls suffered back, neck and abdominal injuries, the State Patrol said.

He was treated and discharged from Olympic Medical Center, a nursing supervisor said Wednesday night. The wreck was the worst of those reported during the snowstorm on the North Olympic Peninsula. The State Patrol gave this account of the collision at Morse Creek: McLennan was driving a 1991 Infinity G20 west on the highway when he crossed the centerline and hit Ingalls, who was driving a 1997 Ford Taurus eastbound.

FORKS — A Pettit Oil truck veered off U.S. Highway 101 about 25 miles south of Forks on Wednesday morning, causing its trailer to overturn and spill up to 3,500 gallons of fuel. After the 8:24 a.m. wreck, spill respond-

ers stopped the leak before the trailer, which was carrying 5,600 gallons of fuel, spilled the rest of its cargo. The truck’s other tank, which was partially full and had the same capacity, did not leak, said state Department of Ecology spokeswoman Kim Schmanke. Turn



OLYMPIA — Washington state’s Latino population grew by more than 70 percent in the last decade, and only two of Washington state’s 39 counties saw their population drop, while most of the state experienced growth, according to figures released by the U.S. Census Bureau on Wednesday. The Census figures put a number on what people here have already noticed: Washington is growing, and it did so quite fast in 10 years. Overall, Washington’s population jumped by 14 percent, gaining the state a 10th seat in Congress. “Washington state remains a highly desirable place to live, offering a stronger economy, safe communities and an unmatched quality of life,” Gov. Chris Gregoire said in a statement. “I’m not surprised by Washington state’s population growth and welcome the added diversity.” Gregoire added that she welcomes the added representation in Congress and the increase of federal money to support programs like Medicaid and education. One of the uses of the data released by the Census Bureau will be to inform the five-member citizen commission that has been tasked with redrawing the state’s congressional and legislative district maps. “We’re anxious to get started, but our first task as a commission is to incorporate the new population data into our redistrict-

King County biggest The Census figures show that King County at 1.9 million people and Seattle at around 600,000 residents remain the largest county and metropolitan area in the state. Clark, Thurston, Whatcom and Benton counties saw their populations spike by more than 20 percent. Topping the list of county population growth was Franklin County in Eastern Washington, which saw its population jump by 58 percent, from about 50,000 to nearly 80,000. Pacific and Garfield counties were the only counties to see a population drop. Turn

DWAYNE MCDUFFIE, 49, who wrote scores of comic books for Marvel and DC and founded his own publishing company before crossing over to television and animation, has died. DC Comics said the Detroit native died Tuesday. His cause and place of death were not immediately known. Mr. McDuffie wrote comics for the New York-based DC and Marvel, including runs on “Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight,” the Fantastic Four and the Justice League of America. He also penned several animated features, including the just-released “All Star Superman,” “Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths” and animated TV series “Static Shock” and “Ben 10: Alien Force.” He founded publishing company Milestone Media in 1992.

1936 (75 years ago) Since Clallam County Treasurer Walter A. Baar dropped personal tax statements in the mail, the telephone bell in his office and that of Assessor Vernon J. Robinson have just been one long jingle. The reason is the change of the system of assessment — a new state law that makes it mandatory for every car to be assessed. This law, in the case of a small householder, makes the personal property tax greater because no part of a car’s value is written off. Baar and Robinson and their staffs have been unable to keep up with all the phone calls.

Briefly: Nation Governor duped into discussing plan for unions MADISON, Wis. — On a prank call that quickly spread across the Internet, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker was duped into discussing his strategy to cripple public employee unions, promising never to give in and joking that he would use a baseball bat in his office to go after political opponents. Walker believed the caller was a conservative billionaire named David Koch, but it was actually the editor of a liberal online Walker newspaper. The two talked for at least 20 minutes — a conversation in which the governor described several potential ways to pressure Democrats to return to the Statehouse and revealed that his supporters had considered secretly planting people in pro-union protest crowds to stir up trouble. Walker compared his stand to that taken by President Ronald Reagan when he fired the nation’s air-traffic controllers during a labor dispute in 1981. The audio was posted by the Buffalo Beast, a left-leaning website based in Buffalo, N.Y., and quickly went viral. Walker spokesman Cullen Werwie confirmed that it was Walker’s voice on the call. At a news conference, Walker acknowledged being deceived but stuck to his message that the union changes were needed

to balance Wisconsin’s budget.

‘Deadliest Catch’ death ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A new member of a “Deadliest Catch” fishing crew has been found dead in an Alaska motel room. Justin Tennison was found dead Tuesday afternoon in a room at the Best Western Bidarka Inn in Homer, Alaska, police said Wednesday. Tennison, 33, was a member of the Time Bandit, one of the vessels on the popular Discovery Channel reality series. He will make a posthumous debut in the seventh season kicking off in April, said Discovery spokesman Josh Weinberg. Homer police Lt. Randy Rosencrans said beer, hard liquor and a small amount of marijuana were found in the room. But he added that the cause of death is unknown, although foul play is not suspected.

Libya violence reviled WASHINGTON — The Obama administration Wednesday sharpened its condemnation of a bloody crackdown on Libyan opposition demonstrators as it broadened its outreach to government officials, dissidents, rights activists and youth in other Arab nations across a Middle East that is seething with unrest. Amid the tumult rocking the region, Obama condemned the violence in Libya in the sharpest terms Washington has yet used and directed his administration to prepare a full range of options, including possible sanctions that could freeze the assets and ban travel to the U.S. by Libyan officials.

U.S. drops defense of anti-gay marriage law Boehner’s spokesman gives sharp response to the change By Pete Yost

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — In a major policy reversal, the Obama administration said Wednesday it will no longer defend the constitutionality of a federal law banning recognition of same-sex marriage. Attorney General Eric Holder said President Barack Obama has concluded that the administration cannot defend the federal law that defines marriage as only between a man and a woman. He noted that the congressional debate during passage of the Defense of Marriage Act “contains numerous expressions reflecting moral disapproval of gays and lesbians and their intimate and family relationships — precisely the kind of stereotype-based thinking and animus” the Constitution is designed to guard against. The Justice Department had defended the act in court until now. The move quickly drew praise from some Democrats in Congress

but a sharp response from the spokesman for Republican John Boehner, the House Speaker. “While Americans want Washington to focus on creating jobs and cutting spending, the president will have to explain why he thinks now is the appropriate time to stir up a controversial issue that sharply divides the nation,” said Boehner’s spokesman Michael Steel.

Obama’s move may position him politically at the forefront of rising public support for gay marriage. Polling results can vary rather significantly depending on what words are used to describe gay marriage, but there is a gradual trend in public opinion toward more acceptance of gay marriage. An Associated Press-National Constitution Center Poll conducted last August found 52 percent of Americans saying the federal government should give legal recognition to marriages between couples of the same sex, while 46 percent said it should not.

‘Ending an . . . injustice’

Support rising

Gay groups, which had long pressured the administration to take a step like this, were pleased. Ron Carey, executive director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, called the policy change “a tremendous step toward recognizing our common humanity and ending an egregious injustice against thousands of loving, committed couples who simply want the protections, rights and responsibilities afforded other married couples. “We thank the Obama administration.”

In polling by ABC News and the Washington Post, support for the legalization of gay marriage has climbed from 37 percent in 2003 to 47 percent in February 2010. Holder’s statement said, “Much of the legal landscape has changed in the 15 years since Congress passed” the Defense of Marriage Act. He noted that the Supreme Court has ruled that laws criminalizing homosexual conduct are unconstitutional and that Congress has repealed the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.

Briefly: World Rift caused by jailed American spy in Pakistan ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — Pakistan’s ISI spy agency is ready to split with the CIA because of frustration over what it calls heavy-handed pressure and its anger over what it believes is a covert U.S. operation involving hundreds of contract spies, according to an internal document obtained by The Associated Press and interviews with U.S. and Pakistani officials. Such a move could seriously damage the U.S war effort in Afghanistan, limit a program targeting al-Qaida insurgents along the Pakistan frontier and restrict Washington’s access to information in the nucleararmed country. According to a statement drafted by the ISI, supported by interviews with officials, an already-fragile relationship between the two agencies collapsed following the shooting death of two Pakistanis by Raymond Davis, a U.S. contracted spy who is in jail in Pakistan facing possible multiple murder charges.

Monday night, said Luiz Claudio Farias, a captain of firefighters in the north-central city of Parauapebas. When the woman went to clean up the following day, she saw the boy playing with something behind the couch, Farias said. It turned out to be a gator. “She snatched the boy away and called us,” he said. Farias said it was lucky the reptile apparently wasn’t in the mood for a meal: “If he was hungry, he could have seriously hurt or even killed the boy.” Firefighters trapped the alligator and took it to a nearby environmental preserve, where they set it free.

Gadhafi’s control whittling away as Lybia revolt spreads By Maggie Michael and Paul Schemm The Associated Press

BENGHAZI, Libya — The scope of Moammar Gadhafi’s control was whittled away Wednesday as major Libyan cities and towns closer to the capital fell to the rebellion against his rule. In the east, now all but broken away, the opposition vowed to “liberate” Tripoli, where the Libyan leader is holed up with a force of militiamen roaming the streets and tanks guarding the outskirts. In a further sign of Gadhafi’s faltering hold, two air force pilots — one from the leader’s own tribe — parachuted out of their warplane and let it crash into the eastern Libyan desert rather than follow orders to bomb an opposition-held city. International momentum was building for action to punish Gadhafi’s regime for the bloody crack-

down it has unleashed against the uprising that began Feb. 15. President Barack Obama said the suffering and bloodshed in Libya “is outrageous and it is unacceptable,” and he directed his administration to prepare a full range of options, including possible sanctions that could freeze the assets and ban travel to the U.S. by Libyan officials.

‘Outrageous, unacceptable’ French President Nicolas Sarkozy raised the possibility of the European Union cutting off economic ties. Another proposal gaining some traction was for the United Nations to declare a no-fly zone over Libya to prevent it using warplanes to hit protesters. U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said that if reports of such strikes are confirmed, “there’s an immediate

need for that level of protection.” Italy’s Foreign Minister Franco Frattini said estimates of some 1,000 people killed in the violence in Libya were “credible,” although he stressed information about casualties was incomplete. The New York-based Human Rights Watch has put the death toll at nearly 300, according to a partial count. In Tripoli, Gadhafi’s stronghold, protest organizers called for new rallies today and Friday, raising the potential for a more bloody confrontation. Militiamen and Gadhafi supporters — a mix of Libyans and foreign African fighters bused in — roamed the capital’s main streets, called up Tuesday night by the Libyan leader in a fistpounding speech in which he vowed to fight to the death. The gunmen fired weapons in the air, chanting “Long live Gadhafi,” and waved green flags.

HAWAII GOV. NEIL Abercrombie signed same-sex civil unions into law Wednesday, calling it “a triumph for everyone” that gay and lesbian couples will have the same state rights as married partners. Civil unions would start Jan. 1, 2012, making Hawaii the seventh state to permit civil unions or similar legal recognitions for gay couples. Five other states and the District of Columbia allow same-sex marriage. “This bill represents equal rights for everyone in Hawaii, everyone who comes here. This is to me the essence of the aloha spirit,” Abercrombie said at a signing ceremony.

A WASHINGTON, D.C., council member wants to highlight the city’s lack of statehood and is asking residents to pick another name for Pennsylvania Avenue. Among the options on the online survey are Let D.C. Vote Way, 51st State Way and Free D.C. Avenue. Council member Michael Brown is considering a ceremonial renaming, and the sign could be placed under existing markers for Pennsylvania Avenue — home to the White House. The survey also asks residents whether other streets should be renamed. Washington’s 600,000 residents pay federal taxes but do not have a vote in Congress.

AFTER 143 MILLION miles and nearly a year all told in orbit, space shuttle Discovery is poised to blast off today one last time. It promises to be a sentimental journey for the six astronauts assigned to the mission as well as the supporting cast of thousands who have painstakingly prepped the world’s most traveled rocketship. Once more, NASA’s fleet leader is paving a new road, one that leads to shuttle retirement and an uncertain future for America’s space program. When Discovery returns from the International Space Station, it will be the first of the three surviving shuttles to be decommissioned this year.

Snow may cause delay of First Street work By Tom Callis

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Work on the First Street stormwater project may have to be delayed until next week because of heavy snowfall. Crews were scheduled to finish preparatory work Wednesday but had to stop that afternoon because of the weather, said Brian Menard, superintendent of Road Construction Northwest Inc. The Renton-based company, which is the city’s contractor on the project, may have to finish that work

Monday and begin cutting into pavement early next week, he said. Pavement cutting was scheduled to begin today. “The only thing we’re doing is light surveying this week probably,” Menard said. Meanwhile, the city has given the company the goahead to work Sunday evenings to lessen the amount of work occurring Fridays, when traffic is most heavy. Menard said crews won’t work every Sunday since it involves overtime. The new schedule allows for crews to work from

6 p.m. to midnight Sundays, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. (with cleanup lasting up to midnight) Mondays through Thursdays, and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Fridays, said Menard and Kate O’Claire, Northwestern Territories Inc. civil engineer.

New schedule NTI of Port Angeles is the lead project manager. O’Claire said the snow may cause the first phase of the project to miss the March 25 deadline by a few days. The first phase involves

RCNW installing a water filter at Valley and First streets and installing a new stormwater pipe under the south lane of First Street up to Oak Street. From there, workers will then install the pipe up to Laurel Street. That work is scheduled to be done by Memorial Day (May 30). Through June 30, the schedule calls for workers to finish paving both lanes of the road between Valley and Laurel streets, applying fog seal to the block between Laurel and Lincoln streets, adding bike lanes and adding and

replacing crosswalks. The project has a price tag of about $2.25 million, according to the city. The city is contributing $225,000 for street paving, with the rest coming from the National Park Service. The park service is covering that cost because the project is part of its Elwha River restoration effort. The First Street project is intended to remove enough stormwater from the city’s sewer system to offset the contribution of sewage from the Lower Elwha Klallam reservation. The tribe will be con-

nected to the city’s sewers because it’s expected that its septic tanks will become unusable as the ground water level rises as a result of the removal of the two Elwha River dams. The park service agreed to fund a stormwater disconnect project to offset the impact on the city’s sewage overflow problem. Construction of the sewer system will start in mid-March and be finished by June 2012.

Snow: About 500 PA residents lose power Continued from A1 Cold air from Canada collided with moisture from the Pacific on Wednesday to produce large amounts of snow in places, especially on the slopes of the Olympic Mountains.

Power outage About 500 city of Port Angeles customers lost power for about one hour Wednesday afternoon south of Lauridsen Boulevard and east of Race Street, city spokeswoman Teresa Pierce said. The outage was caused by heavy snow on power lines. Clallam County Public Utility District spokesman Mike Howe said there were no widespread power outages Wednesday afternoon. “So far so good,” Howe said. “We’re obviously prepared for the worst. Hopefully we don’t get the worst.” Puget Sound Energy, which provides electricity to most of East Jefferson County, reported no widespread power outages.

Snowplowing Clallam County had several plows working in each of its three districts Wednesday. “We’ve been keeping up pretty well so far,” said Ross Tyler, Clallam County engineer. Plows and road graders will be back at work before 6 a.m. today to clear new snow off county roads, Tyler said. Glenn Cutler, Port Angeles public works and utilities director, said city plows will work through the night clearing the main arterials. Sequim road crews started ahead of the snowstorm that blew into the

Snow slowed traffic to a crawl on U.S. Highway 101 at Happy Valley Road near Sequim shortly after 2:30 p.m. A number of vehicles were reported as sliding off 101 into ditches between Gardiner and Sequim after the storm dropped heavy snow over less than an hour.

“We only have two plowers, and we’re keeping them on the road for 12-hour shifts, 24 hours.”

Wednesday, dumping close to 3 inches in less than an hour, and are removing snow around the clock, said City Public Works Director Paul Haines. “We only have two plowers, and we’re keeping them on the road for 12-hour shifts, 24 hours,” Haines said.

Bus service Jefferson Transit was operating its regular bus and dial-a-ride service as of 3 p.m. “We really are not deviating at all,” said Tammi Rubert, Jefferson Transit

View Connector and No. 11 shuttle moved to snow routes later Wednesday. Jefferson Transit will post rider alerts to its website, www.jeffersontransit. com, as conditions change.

Bus service cut back Clallam Transit cut back Port Angeles bus service to an hourly, rather than halfhourly, schedule Wednesday. It plans to run regular routes and schedules as much as possible today. Visit the Clallam Transit website, www.clallam, for updates this morning after 6 a.m.

3:30 p.m. Wednesday. It will open at 10 a.m. today, said Jamye Wisecup, Clallam County Emergency Management program coordinator. Port Angeles School District released students early Wednesday.

Schools Quillayute Valley School District canceled all classes Wednesday because of snow limiting the bus routes, said Superintendent Diana Reaume. All other North Olympic Peninsula school districts held classes as scheduled.

All districts will decide in the early-morning hours whether classes will be held today. Contact local school districts for more information. Port Angeles City Hall closed early Wednesday and will reopen at 10 a.m. today. Port Angeles, Clallam Bay, Sequim and Forks libraries closed early Wednesday. The Port of Port Angeles spent the day plowing the runway at the William R. Fairchild International Airport, which had short periodic closures, said Executive Director Jeff Robb.

Kenmore Air managed two round-trip flights Wednesday before canceling the remainder for the day, said Kenmore spokesman Craig O’Neill. Today’s 5:30 a.m. flight has been canceled, but the airline hopes to make other flights as scheduled, O’Neill said.

Witnessed collision While the State Patrol did not determine a reason why McLennan swerved into oncoming traffic, Oppelt said it appeared that he was traveling about 45 mph around the curve and slid across the centerline. “He [McLennan] had crossed over into the opposite lane of traffic, and three or four sets of cars split around him before he hit someone,” he said. “We were just cringing because we just knew it would happen. “When they got close, I

was hoping they would just graze each other, but they connected right on.” Oppelt phoned 9-1-1 for emergency help and went to see how the drivers were. “The one man was unresponsive right away, but the other guy was in pain but responsive,” he said. He said the dog in the car was also unresponsive and that it was a small dog, less than 20 pounds, with long blond fur.

Snarled traffic The area around Morse Creek was snarled for several hours after the 1 p.m. wreck, Hedstrom said. The collision prompted the closure of the highway for three hours, with alternating traffic allowed to pass the point in the eastbound lane only. Drivers reported traffic being backed up as far as

McDonald’s in Port Angeles and Kitchen-Dick Road near Sequim. Several cars went off the road, and there were some minor collisions, Hedstrom said, adding no injuries were reported. Cars slid on icy streets all over the Peninsula. Several reports of vehicles sliding off U.S. Highway 101 between Gardiner and Sequim were reported Wednesday afternoon. No injuries were reported, but traffic was periodically slowed to a crawl as wind blew eastward, blanketing the highway. Few such incidents were reported off the highway and in the Dungeness Valley. In Jefferson County, “there were lots of fender benders in Jefferson County but nothing with any injuries,” Hedstrom said.

Nancy McDaniel, Jefferson County Emergency Management deputy program manager, said wrecks briefly blocked Highway 101 and state Highway 20 in the county. In Port Angeles, Police Sgt. Glen Roggenbuck reported a two-vehicle hitand-run wreck at Eighth and A streets at 12:35 p.m. No injuries were reported. At 12:55 p.m., a fourvehicle, noninjury wreck on Eighth Street bottled up traffic and caused a chain reaction. Police diverted westbound traffic down A Street. Roggenbuck said police were busy Wednesday, mostly with vehicles sliding into ditches or off the road.

Pirates add ammo, men to vessels By Jason Straziuso and Malkhadir M. Muhmed The Associated Press

hijacked ships have been ordered to tell navies not to approach or hostages would be killed. “In the past, 20 or so soldiers used to guard every ship, but now the numbers are ranging between 60 and 70 soldiers,” said Ali, a pirate in the coastal village of Gara’ad. Piracy has plagued the shipping industry off East Africa for years, but the violence used during the attacks — and the money demanded in ransoms — have increased in recent months. Pirates now hold some 30 ships and more than 660 hostages. The average ransom now paid to pirates is in the  $5 million range, a huge leap from only three or four years ago when it was in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, said Roger Middleton, a piracy expert at the Londonbased think tank Chatham House. One ransom paid last

NAIROBI, Kenya — Pirates in Somalia said Wednesday they are ferrying ammunition and men to the 30 hijacked vessels still under their control, and they threatened to kill more captives following the violent end to a hostage standoff that left four Americans dead. The U.S. military said that 15 pirates detained after the Americans were slain Tuesday could face trial in the United States. The military, FBI and Justice Department are working on the next steps for those pirates, said Bob Prucha, a spokesman for U.S. Central Command in Florida. The Somalis are being held on the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise, which is in the waters off East Africa. A pirate aboard the hijacked yacht Quest on Tuesday fired a rocket-propelled grenade at a U.S. warship that had responded to last Friday’s hijacking. Then gunfire broke out aboard the vessel.

That hijacking ended when Navy sharpshooters killed two pirates holding the ship’s American captain. Pirates reacted angrily to the sentencing and have since vowed that they will kill hostages before being captured during military raids and being sent to face trial.

Industry experts warned Wednesday it’s too soon to say whether the Americans’ deaths will require a wholesale change in the way the shipping industry operates along with the militaries patrolling the Gulf of Aden and Indian Ocean. It’s still not known publicly what prompted a pirate to fire a rocket-propelled grenade at a Navy war ship, and it’s unclear whether there was an internal pirate fight or if there had been a hostage escape attempt. Pirates blamed the deaths of the American hostages on the U.S. Navy, saying the pirates felt under attack. “We warned them before that if we are attacked, there would be only dead bodies,” said a man who gave his name as Abdirahman Abdullahi Qabowsade.

Tribal council urges action on land use By Paige Dickerson Peninsula Daily News

LAPUSH — The Quileute Tribal Council told Sen. Maria Cantwell about their need to move their Pacific Coast community to higher ground while visiting Washington, D.C., last week. The five-member council wanted to emphasize their safety concerns to Cantwell, D-Mountlake Terrace, the council said in a statement. Late last year, the 6th Congressional District’s congressman, Rep. Norm Dicks, D-Belfair, introduced legislation that would transfer about 772 acres of land from Olympic National Park to the tribe, allowing them to move much of the reservation upland — away from tsunami and Quillayute River flood zones in LaPush. “It was very important for us to personally deliver the message that spoke to the sentiments of our people and to echo the words of our ancestors and elders who have walked on,” said Quileute Chairwoman Bonita Cleveland. “Many of them worked diligently on this legislation, and I know their spirits were with us as we journeyed for our tribe.” Although Cantwell has not yet filed a companion bill, her spokesman, Jered

Leopold, said she was supportive of the idea. “Senator Cantwell is committed to working with Congressman Dicks and Quileute leaders to increase economic opportunity and protect tribal members and their property from devastating floods and tsunamis,” he said.

Relocate school, center “We desperately need passage of the land transfer legislation so that before the tsunami comes, we can relocate the Quileute Tribal School and senior center to higher ground,” Cleveland said. “The Quileutes are watching river flooding and high water cause massive erosion that is destroying traditional Quileute fishing and hunting lands, as well threatening the tribal school, administrative offices and the U.S. Coast Guard Station that protects tribal fishermen. “There is no hope of ever recovering many of these precious lands, and there is great fear that critical tribal infrastructure could be destroyed in a flash by a sudden change in the river channel.” The bill must first move through several committees before it is voted on by the House or Senate. Dicks, whose district includes the North Olympic

Peninsula, said last year that he hoped for votes in both the House and the Senate this year.

Cell phone service The council also met with a communications attorney to see if they could speed up acquiring cell phone service on the reservation. The attorney will look into anything that can be done with the Federal Communications Commission to get the service up and running as quickly as possible, the council said. Currently, no service is available because no tower is close enough to LaPush to permit it. The tribe signed an agreement last year with Verizon to build a tower before the end of 2013, said Executive Director Bill Peach. Toward the end of 2010, Verizon representatives had said that the project would be put off until after 2011. But in recent conversations, they have said bids for tower construction are due by the end of March, Peach said. The tower could be operating by the end of the summer if construction is finished and final approval has been acquired from the FCC, Peach said. “It is really a positive thing,” Peach said.

From left are Quileute Tribal Council Vice Chairman Tony Foster, Sen. Maria Cantwell and Quileute Tribal Council Chairwoman Bonita Cleveland. “The tribe has been perseverant on this because we genuinely need it — we are accessing something that everyone else in the world takes for granted. “This isn’t just for convenience but for safety.” Peach said Tuesday that he had completed Red Cross Emergency Management training and had noticed

how helpful cell phones would be in the case of a disaster. “Right now, we just have to work around that,” he said. Phone calls to Verizon’s public relations department were not answered. The need for cell phone service is, like the land transfer bill, a safety issue,

Cleveland said. “It is imperative that we have cell phone service to reach emergency personnel in the event of a tsunami,” she said.

$12,500 awarded for educational projects By Paige Dickerson Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — A dozen school projects received $12,500 in awards from the Port Angeles Education Foundation’s School and Teacher Grants program. They range from a camp to prepare kindergartners for school to a music computer program. “The Port Angeles Education Foundation’s School and Teacher Grants are intended to promote creativity, innovation and excellence in and around the classrooms of Port Angeles public schools,” said Chris Riffle, allocations committee chair. “We received a large number of applications this year — all seeking funding for worthwhile projects, activities and needed equipment. “While selecting from

these well-qualified applications was challenging, it was exciting to see the creativity, dedication and collaboration between teachers, parent groups and administrators,” Riffle said. “We are honored to be part of the educational process and look forward to our continued partnership with the Port Angeles School District.” The awardees include: ■  Adventure Camp — A four-week camp to prepare incoming kindergartners for school. Franklin, Dry Creek, Hamilton and Jefferson elementary schools will share $740 to run the camps. ■  Artist in residence — Local artist Mike Pace teaches various lessons to students at Dry Creek Elementary School.

Peninsula Daily News for Thursday, February 24, 2011




Slippery slope: Monetary value of life BACK IN THE American Wild West, federal and state governments often put a price on the heads of infamous outlaws like Billy the Kid, Jesse James, Cal Sam Bass, Belle Star and Thomas Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Today, our government is not so selective. It’s seeking to put a price on the head of every American. Not because they’ve robbed a train, but for a different reason that could lead to a very bad end. Various government agencies have come up with formulas for determining how much we are worth. The Environmental Protection Agency has set the value of a

human life at $9.1 million. It reached this determination while proposing tighter restrictions on air pollution. During the Bush administration, EPA calculated our value at $6.8 million. Was the difference in price caused by inflation? The EPA didn’t say. The Food and Drug Administration arrived at its own figure for the value of an American life. It says each life is worth $7.9 million. That, too, is an increase from the $5 million value FDA had assigned each human American life in 2008. The agency calculated our value while proposing new and tougher warning labels on cigarettes that include pictures of cancer victims. The Transportation Department — yes, Transportation — put our worth at $6 million while seeking to justify recent decisions

to impose regulations the Bush administration had rejected as too costly, such as stronger roofs on cars. It’s nice to know that our government values its citizens beyond what it can extract in taxes. But given the Obama administration’s likely pursuit of health care rationing (Dr. Donald Berwick, a wealth redistributionist who heads the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, is a proponent of rationed care) it is easy to forecast where this could lead should human life be regarded as having only that value placed upon it by government, or an agent of the state. The beauty of our form of government is that it begins, not with government, but with us: “We the People.” In our Declaration of Independence from Britain, there is a clause that sets us apart from virtually all other nations.

Peninsula Voices Show both sides’ It occurred to me, on the (presumed) real birthday of George Washington [Feb. 22], that the Peninsula Daily News really needs to balance out its Commentary page to reflect the diversity of political opinion that exists among its readership. For example, more than half the voters of Clallam County voted to elect [Republicans] Jim McEntire and Dan Gase to the state Legislature. And way more than half voted via the initiative process to limit new taxes. Yet, the Feb. 22 Commentary page contains two leftist columnists, Paul Krugman [“Cairo Moves To Madison, Indeed”] and Gail Collins [“Up With NASCAR, Down With Big Bird”]. Many of us were offended when the PDN allowed vitriolic voices to hound Friday columnist Ann Coulter its pages, but instead retained Amy Goodman’s nasty Thursday column, which doesn’t even pretend to pay attention to verifiable facts. This just confirms the

Instead of receiving our basic rights, such as the right to life, from a king or despot — as was the case in older cultures and too many modern ones — America’s Founders saw basic rights emanating from “our Creator” and thus, outside the reach of government and bureaucratic tampering. Where could a formula for a governmental valuation of human life lead? If government gets to determine our worth, it could lead to government determining when in its judgment we are worthless. It could lead to government deciding that when we are costing the state more than we are paying in taxes, we might be seen as a bottle, package or can, whose “sell by” date has expired. And that would mean the government could regard us as disposable and allow, or force us, to “expire.” Too extreme? “It couldn’t

happen here,” you say? All great horrors begin at the extremes and work their way into the mainstream because of moral weakness or exhaustion, or self-regard, or the rejection of (or ambivalence about) certain fundamental truths. Such neglectfulness paves the way for the great inhumanities, which today are studied in schools. They wonder, “how it could have happened” and “why didn’t anyone see this coming?” How and why, indeed?

Pregnancy centers Rep. Kevin Van De Wege has co-sponsored a bill [HB 1366] in Olympia which will impose burdensome regulations on limited-care pregnancy centers. Among other provisions in the proposed law is a requirement that the centers post a prominent sign at their entrances that states in five languages what services it does not provide. What’s next? Surgeons posting signs in five languages stating that they don’t do dermatology? Hardware stores with signs that they don’t sell dresses? This proposed legislation is troubling to me. Regardless of your stance regarding unborn

babies, this law being aimed at only one segment of the population and not being applicable to others should trouble you, too. It seems unconstitutional. Certainly, it’s unfair. George Wreggit, Sequim

Salmon health I live in Dallas, but I am frequently in Port Angeles, — and I am familiar with

the Elwha Dam issue. The use of hysterical terminology by the writer of the Feb. 16 letter, “Magical Thinking,” muddies the waters, so to speak. Setting aside inflammatory phrases like “insane policy,” “state religion,” “Earth worship,” “scandalous decision” and the new standard of those promoting government as Enemy No. 1, “redistribution of

wealth,” the primary question is: Will the health of the salmon population definitively be improved by removal of the aging dams? The answer to that is found in the answer to this: Was the local salmon population more robust prior to dam construction? Concern over “precious

resources” motivating schools, organizations, national park staff and tribes to protect them is hardly a reasonable source of outrage. Failing to act equates to the degradation and ultimate disappearance of precious resources, rather obviously. Hence, protection of them is merely practicing common sense; an activity certain to generate giddiness, pride and relief in parents worldwide when employed by their children. As for the writers’ disdain for what he terms “Earth worship,” it may be wise to recall that there is but one Earth, and he’s far beyond lucky to be on it. Had he only one eye, one leg, even one car, would he refuse to maintain them because it infuriated him, or would he jealously guard them? One needn’t be Solomon to conclude protecting that which is an authentically precious resource is in our own self-interest. Bruce E. Bonnheim, Dallas, Texas

Similar threads in Madison, Egypt protests UP TO 80,000 people marched to the Wisconsin state Capitol in Madison last Saturday as part of an ongoing protest against newly elected Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s attempt to not just badger the state’s pubAmy lic employee Goodman unions, but to break them. The Madison uprising follows on the heels of those in the Middle East. A sign held by one university student, an Iraq War vet, read: “I went to Iraq and came home to Egypt?” Another read, “Walker: Mubarak of the Midwest.” Likewise, a photo has circulated in Madison of a young man at a rally in Cairo, with a sign reading: “Egypt supports Wisconsin workers: One world, one pain.” Meanwhile, Libyans continue to defy a violent government crackdown against masses seeking to oust longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi, and more than 10,000 marched Tuesday in Ohio to oppose Republican Gov.

John Kasich’s attempted antiunion legislative putsch. Just a few weeks ago, solidarity between Egyptian youth and Wisconsin police officers, or between Libyan workers and Ohio public employees, might have elicited a raised eyebrow. The uprising in Tunisia was sparked by the suicide of a young man named Mohamed Bouazizi, a 26-year-old university graduate who could not find professional work. Selling fruits and vegetables in the market, he was repeatedly harassed by Tunisian authorities who eventually confiscated his scale. Unbearably frustrated, he set himself on fire, a spark that ignited the protests that became the wave of revolution in the Middle East and North Africa. For decades in the region, people have lived under dictatorships — many which receive U.S. military aid — suffering humanrights abuses along with low income, high unemployment and almost no freedom of speech. All this, while the elites amassed fortunes. Similar grievances underlie the conflicts in Wisconsin and Ohio. The “Great Recession” of 2008, according to economist Dean Baker, is now in its 37th month,

with no sign of relenting. In a recent paper, Baker says that, due to the financial crisis, “many political figures have argued the need to drastically reduce the generosity of publicsector pensions, and possibly to default on pension obligations already incurred. “Most of the pension shortfall . . . is attributable to the plunge in the stock market in the years 2007-2009.” In other words, Wall Street hucksters, selling the complex mortgage-backed securities that provoked the collapse, are the ones who caused any pension shortfall. Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Cay Johnston said recently: “The average Wisconsin state employee gets $24,500 a year. “That’s not a very big pension . . . 15 percent of the money going into it each year is being paid out to Wall Street to manage the money. That’s a really huge, high percentage to pay out to Wall Street to manage the money.” So, while investment bankers skim a huge percentage off pension funds, it’s the workers who are being demonized and asked to make the sacrifices. Those who caused the problem, who then got lavish bailouts and now are treated to

huge salaries and bonuses, are not being held accountable. Following the money, it turns out Gov. Walker’s campaign was funded by the notorious Koch brothers, major backers of the tea party organizations. They also gave $1 million to the Republican Governors Association, which gave substantial support to Walker’s campaign. Is it surprising that Gov. Walker supports corporations with tax breaks and has launched a massive attack on unionized, public-sector employees? One of the unions being targeted by Walker, and by Gov. Kasich in Ohio, is AFSCME, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees. The union was founded in 1932, in the midst of the Great Depression, in Madison, Wis. Its 1.6 million members are nurses, corrections officers, childcare providers, EMTs and sanitation workers. It is instructive to remember, in this Black History Month, that it was the struggle of the sanitation workers of AFSCME local No. 1733 that brought Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to Memphis, Tenn., back in April 1968. As Jesse Jackson told me as he marched with students and

their unionized teachers in Madison Tuesday: “Dr. King’s last act on Earth, marching in Memphis, Tenn., was about workers’ rights to collective bargaining and rights to dues checkoff. “You cannot remove the roof for the wealthy and remove the floor for the poor.” The workers of Egypt were instrumental in bringing down the regime there, in a remarkable coalition with Egypt’s youth. In the streets of Madison, under the Capitol dome, another demonstration of solidarity is taking place. Wisconsin’s workers have agreed to pay and pension concessions, but will not give up their right to collective bargaining. At this point, Gov. Walker would be wise to negotiate.

On Sports

All quiet on labor front for baseball WELCOME TO CAMP Tranquillity. For once, baseball is not the center of labor unrest in sports. Its contract does not end until George Dec. 11, and what with the ominous Vecsey clouds over football and basketball, that seems like an eternity. Football’s contract expires on March 3, and the NFL is facing the real threat of golden fall Sundays without human missiles colliding with one another. The NFL is also facing the human tragedy of Dave Duerson, a good and popular former player, shooting himself in the chest last week in order to preserve his brain for scientific study into the possibility of damage from repeated hits to the head. This terrible event could be one of the landmarks of football history, forcing people to ask just what kind of sport this is. These next few months could also be the last time anybody sees the NBA as we know it, what with the contract running out after this season. New York Knicks fans may not be able to process the brief and flamboyant and probably even foolish pairing of Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony. Before the new version of Knicks learn one another’s names, they could be atomized by a labor stoppage. Now you see them, now you don’t. And out there in the real world, Scott Walker, the governor of Wisconsin, is putting a well-orchestrated squeeze on teachers and other vital professions — “an opportunistic attack on unions,” Michael Weiner, the head of the Major League Baseball Players Association said Tuesday. Weiner was visiting the Mets’ camp, one of his annual spring training chats with the players in Florida and in Arizona. There have been not-too-distant springs when the training camp ritual did not sound like Camp Tranquillity —when Donald Fehr was fighting the concept of drug testing, period. But Fehr has moved to run the hockey players’ association, and baseball, for the moment, seems to radiate positive vibrations.

Nobody has ever attempted such a trip alone by row boat before. That doesn’t bother Duff too much, however.

Cust may be power M’s need Free agent slugger hits for power but also strikes out a lot By Tim Booth

Pujols prodding?

The Associated Press

On Monday, Weiner started his trip in Jupiter, Fla., home of the St. Louis Cardinals, whose manager, Tony La Russa, had suggested Weiner and the association were prodding Albert Pujols into demanding 10 years and $300 million, to raise the tide of salaries. Weiner did not discuss the subject in Mets camp, but on Monday, he said the issue was between Pujols and his team. On Tuesday, Weiner was asked about the Mets’ business relationship with Bernard L. Madoff, and how that scandal has the owners seeking a minority partner. “The Wilpons have always fielded a strong team, and they have had success,” Weiner said, referring to the Mets’ principal owner, Fred Wilpon. “We want to make sure all contractual agreements are honored, and we are assured they will be,” Weiner said, adding that in the broader sense, “it’s in the interest of everybody that the National League franchise in New York be strong.” The legacy of bulked-up players and soaring home-run totals and several testy public hearings has accompanied baseball’s acceptance of regular testing for steroids. Could the next step be testing for human growth hormone, which requires blood testing rather than urine samples? Weiner said, “Drug testing at this point is part of the bargaining landscape — but only a part.” Weiner said that some players favored expanding the postseason and added that players might be glad to see a shortening of the season but not a cutting of salaries.

PEORIA, Ariz. — Strikeouts, walks, home runs. Yep, that pretty much sums up Jack Cust. OK, maybe it’s not that simple, too limited a definition for a slugger about to enter his fifth full major Cust league season. But when the Seattle Mariners signed Cust in the offseason to a $2.5 million, oneyear deal, they understood what Cust’s strengths — and limitations — were. He hits the ball really hard. He’s got a sharp eye at the plate and an ability to draw walks. And he strikes out, a lot. Take it or leave it. That’s who Cust is at the plate. “It’s kind of like second nature for me,” Cust said. “It’s just the way I hit, sometimes to a fault.” In an offseason devoid of headline moves and limited by financial constraints due to the contracts of others, Cust served as Seattle’s most significant free agent signing this winter. Seattle hopes that Cust can prove to be the left-handed power bat the Mariners have lacked in their vast home ballpark since Ken Griffey Jr. first left the Pacific Northwest after the 1999 season. Only twice since Griffey left Seattle — Russell Branyan in 2009 and Raul Ibanez in 2006 — has a left-handed Mariners batter slugged more than 30 homers in a season. Turn

Former Chimacum High School star Steven Gray and the rest of the Gonzaga Bulldogs are on the rise following a poor start to the season.

Resurgent Zags Bulldogs on rise going into tonight’s matchup By Nicholas K. Geranios The Associated Press

SPOKANE — A month ago, Gonzaga’s run of 10 consecutive West Coast Conference championships was in jeopardy after it lost three straight games.

Tonight, they play at Saint Mary’s with a chance to move into a tie for first place. It took six straight WCC wins for resurgent Gonzaga (19-9, 9-3) to get a chance to win an 11th consecutive regular season title, a streak second only to UCLA’s

record 13 straight crowns. “We’re playing for a league championship on the last week of the year,” coach Mark Few said. “You can’t ask for anything else, especially in lieu of where we were four or five weeks ago.” It has been a fitful season for the Gonzaga faithful, who are accustomed to Top 25 rankings, high-profile wins, and a waltz through the 14-game WCC schedule.

Garden goes gonzo Melo hits big shots in debut The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Carmelo Anthony had never experienced anything like his welcome to New York. The screaming fans and video tributes seemed more fitting for a rock concert than an NBA game. But when it got close at the end, that was all too familiar to Anthony. “It came down to basketball at that point,” he said. Anthony had 27 points and 10 rebounds, hitting a pair of clutch buckets down the stretch in front of a crowd that cheered his every move as New York beat the Milwaukee Bucks 114-108 on Wednesday night in his Knicks debut. “This was ordinary for him, and that’s the highest compliment of what he does. You drop him in any place, any playground, any place in the world and he’ll put up 27 points and 10 rebounds,” Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni said. “That’s what he does for a living.” Anthony made only 10 of 25 shots but was at his best in the closing minutes, helping New York hold on after fellow superstar Amare Stoudemire fouled out. He matched the thirdhighest scoring game in a Knicks debut since 1964, just two points shy of Keith Van Horn’s 29 on Oct. 29, 2003. “I’m just glad I got this game out of my system,” Anthony said, adding the last two days were both “hectic” and a “roller coaster.”

The Associated Press

New York Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony (7) drives between Milwaukee Bucks’ John Salmons (15) and Andrew Bogut, left, during the second half of Wednesday’s game in New York. Chauncey Billups, who came with Anthony from Denver in Tuesday’s blockbuster trade, finished with 21 points and eight assists as the Knicks won their third straight. Toney Douglas scored 23 points and Stoudemire had 19. John Salmons scored 27 points for the Bucks. Andrew Bogut added 14 points and 12 rebounds. With fans chanting for both Anthony and Billups in the final minute, New York matched its win total from last season with its 29th victory — but now the Knicks have much bigger plans than that. The Knicks have never had a winning season since Anthony entered the NBA

and are mired in a franchise-worst stretch of nine straight losing seasons. Their revival began when Stoudemire signed last summer and reached a new level Wednesday when Anthony walked out of the tunnel and onto the floor where he came in averaging 30.4 points, just off Kobe Bryant’s 30.5 for tops among active players. Anthony said before the game the Knicks could score 120 points per game, and they weren’t far off even without any real practice time in their first game together. Milwaukee was down four when Anthony drove the baseline for a dunk with 1:18 remaining, and with

Stoudemire on the bench his tough bucket in the lane with the shot clock running down with 26 seconds left made it 108-102. “We needed that offensive threat out there when I’m not on the court, and he’s definitely that,” Stoudemire said. They might need it even more later in the season. Stoudemire picked up his 15th technical foul of the season after fouling out, moving him one away from an automatic one-game suspension. Anthony added two free throws with 11.4 seconds remaining, fans chanting “Melo! Melo!” as he sank them for a six-point edge. Billups was serenaded with a “Chauncey Billups!” chant when he later went to the line. The Knicks gave up a lot to land them, surrendering starters Danilo Gallinari, Raymond Felton, Timofey Mozgov and top reserve Wilson Chandler. But they insisted the price was worth it for the chance to pair Anthony along with Stoudemire, with both locked up long term after Anthony signed a contract extension on his way out of Denver. With the building appearing completely full before tipoff, fans roared as quotes from Anthony appeared on the overhead videoboard before introductions, noting he was born in Brooklyn and wanted to be former Knicks star Bernard King. Anthony was then introduced first to a raucous ovation, and quickly earned his first points as a Knick on an offensive rebound with 9:37 left in the first quarter. “I never experienced anything like that before,” Anthony said. “That was a hell of a moment for the fans to react the way they did.”

Zags: Have shot at WCC title Continued from B1 Mickey McConnell’s lastsecond jumper on Jan. 27. They can clinch the WCC While several mid-major programs have grabbed the title with a win tonight.

All three have seen their Instead of folding, the Zags won six straight WCC minutes and contributions games (wrapped around the increasing in the second loss to Memphis) and half of the season. “In order for us to be avenged losses to Santa good team, everybody has to Clara and San Francisco.

Dower is averaging 7 points in just 13 minutes a game, while Stockton provides solid guard play off the bench. The Zags are also getting good play from Elias Harris, a freshman sensation last year who has struggled to put up the same type of numbers again. Harris, considered a possible lottery pick before the season, is averaging 11.9 points and 5.8 rebounds per game. Center Robert Sacre has struggled recently, although he continues to average 12.9 points and 6.7 rebounds per game.

Steady hand The steadiest player has been senior guard and former Chimacum High School standout Steven Gray, the leading scorer at 14 points per game. Gray, the lone senior, has the most perspective on the team’s legacy of success. “We don’t remember when we had a game like this that meant so much in conference,” Gray said of

the Saint Mary’s contest. “We want to go out and make the most of it.” History can be a burden for the Zags, whose sellout crowds are not used to seeing them struggle in the WCC. In the past decade, they went 128-12 in the league, and lost only two of those games at home. They are 88-6 in the McCarthey Athletic Center since it opened in 2004, but two of those losses came this year, to San Diego State and Saint Mary’s. Gonzaga’s 10 straight regular-season titles are tied with UNLV (Big West, 1983-92) and Connecticut (Yankee, 1951-60) for the second-longest streak in history. UCLA won 13 Pac10 titles from 1967-79. Few, who has never won fewer than 23 games or failed to make the NCAA tournament in his first 11 seasons, said the future of those streaks is up to the players. “We’ve got to put everything aside and play,” Few said. “There are no speeches this time of year.”

Mariners: Hope for lefty power Continued from B1 But Cust isn’t simply a slugger. He’s a keen eye, an example of patience — sometimes too much — that the Mariners hope their younger players will watch closely. “One of the many reasons we wanted him over here is the professional at bat he puts up, not just in regard to his production but the example he sets for our younger players in regard to his professional approach,” Seattle manager Eric Wedge said. “That’s what we want, we want good at bats, good outs, stick your nose in there with two strikes and making sure whoever is on the mound knows who hit against him whether he got a hit or not.” With Cust, though, that’s not the end of his story. The sharp eye he possesses that helps draw walks and slug homers also comes with a downside: strikeouts.

For three straight years (2007-09) with Oakland, Cust led the American League in strikeouts. He went down nearly 200 times in 2008, at the same time leading the league in walks with 111. He also hit a career-high 33 homers that season. The stats are confounding. How can a hitter with power and such a sharp eye for balls and strikes be the best at drawing walks and the worst at striking out at the same time? Cust said his patience is sometimes his biggest drawback, a trait that started when his father taught him the philosophy of hitting based around Ted Williams. He followed those teachings all through his youth, into the minors and through his major league career. In past years, Cust’s philosophy was such that he waited for that perfect pitch, trying to square up a ball he could potentially hit out of the park.

And while waiting for that pitch to come, he regularly found himself behind in counts and in bad drive situations. Cust nearly landed in Seattle last year, instead deciding on a fourth season in Oakland. Then he began the year at Triple-A and decided it was time for a change. He was still going to be patient at the plate, but he knew the strikeouts needed to decrease. So instead of waiting for the perfect pitch in the hopes of cracking a long home run, Cust became a little less selective, instead looking for a decent pitch he could drive — just maybe not for a homer. In 112 games last season, Cust hit just 13 homers, but also dropped his strikeouts to 127 after striking out 185 times the year before. Cust also raised his batting average to a career-best .275 and his on-base percentage was the second-best

of his career, despite walking only — for him — 68 times. And he’s excited about the opportunity to hit with the likes of Ichiro and Chone Figgins batting ahead of him in the Mariners lineup. Cust has never had more than 82 RBIs in a season. “By putting the ball in play earlier in the count, not being as selective, maybe the home runs go down a little bit but the productivity as an overall hitter goes up,” Cust said. “The more balls you put in play the more chances you have of success and some of these pitchers you can’t be looking for cookies all the time. “You’re not going to get them.”

Savings lotteries OLYMPIA — State senators have approved a bill allowing banks to establish prize-linked savings accounts to encourage fiscal responsibility in the wake of the recession. The bill, which now moves to the state House for consideration, would permit financial institutions to set up a lotterylike contest, in which those who deposit money in savings accounts are eligible to win cash prizes throughout the year. Prime sponsor Sen. Derek Kilmer, D-Gig Harbor, said lottery-like contests in other states have been shown to significantly improve people’s savings habits. Maine, Rhode Island and Maryland passed similar legislation in 2010.

It was unclear how much more pollution would be emitted as a result of the EPA rules rewrite, but the agency said many health benefits would be achieved. The standards will avert between 2,600 and 6,600 premature deaths, prevent 4,100 heart attacks and forestall 42,000 asthma attacks per year in 2014, it said.

WASHINGTON — Under government pressure, Ford Motor Co. said Wednesday it will recall nearly 150,000 F-150 pickup trucks to fix air bags that could deploy without warning, a fraction of the vehicles the government contends should be called back and repaired. The recall covers trucks from the 20052006 model years in the United States and Canada for what the Dearborn, Mich., company calls a “relatively low risk” of the air bag deploying inadvertently. The government, however, has urged Ford to recall 1.3 million F-150s from the 2004-2006 model years, citing 77 injuries from air bags deploying accidentally. The recall is being closely watched because Ford’s F-Series pickup truck is the best-selling vehicle in America. Ford’s leaders have made safety a cornerstone of the company’s revitalization, but the truck recall represents the latest safety issue to confront the automaker. During the past decade, Ford recalled more than 10 million vehicles, including the F-Series pickup, to repair a cruise control switch system that was linked to engine fires. The new recall is expected to begin in early March. Owners will be notified and told to bring their trucks to their dealers.

Biomass boilers The new rules also create a subcategory for boilers that burn plant and tree waste known as biomass, distinguishing them from coal-fired boilers, and granting a request by the American Forest & Paper Association. The trade group claimed that the rules proposed last year couldn’t be achieved by many paper mills that use wood waste to power their operations. Last month, the EPA announced it will defer greenhouse-gas permitting requirements for emissions from industries’ burning of biomass. The EPA said the threeyear deferral will allow the agency to research the environmental impact of burning biomass for fuel and to develop rules on whether emissions from such sources would require permitting under the Clean Air Act.

stands its ground when industries argue for further changes.”

Stocks fall on tensions in Libya, HP earnings NEW YORK — Stocks had their worst two-day pullback in six months Wednesday after clashes in Libya sent oil prices to new highs and Hewlett-Packard said its revenue growth was slowing. Oil hit $100 per barrel Wednesday for the first time in 2½ years as the unrest in Libya worsened, and gasoline prices in the U.S. climbed to nearly $3.20 a gallon, the highest level ever for February. West Texas Intermediate crude for April delivery jumped $2.68, or 2.8 percent, to settle at $98.10 per barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Earlier in the day, prices hit triple digits for the first time since Oct. 2, 2008. West Texas Intermediate has soared 18 percent since Valentine’s Day.

“We’re at a point where the market is concerned over this series of dominoes in the Middle East and wonders if there’s another country that’s next to fall,” said David Katz, a portfolio strategist for Weiser Capital Management.

Oil companies up Oil companies benefited from the higher crude prices. Chevron Corp. was the biggest gainer in the Dow average, rising 1.9 percent. Exxon Mobil Corp also gained 1.9 percent. Energy companies in the Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 2 percent, the only gain among its 10 company groups. Overall, the Dow Jones industrial average, S&P

500 and Nasdaq composite fell — and two stocks fell for every one that rose on the New York Stock Exchange.

HP disappoints Technology stocks fell after Hewlett-Packard Co., a bellwether for the group, gave a disappointing revenue forecast for the current fiscal year. The stock fell 9.6 percent, the most out of the 30 that make up the Dow average. Government bond prices slipped after an auction for five-year notes drew only modest demand. The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note rose to 3.49 percent from 3.46 percent late Tuesday. Bond yields rise when their prices fall.

$3.194 a gallon average The national average for a gallon of regular gasoline rose 2.3 cents Wednesday to $3.194, according to AAA, Wright Express and Oil Price Information Service. Gas has jumped 8.2 cents per gallon in the past month and $1.28 in the past year. Traders are worried the revolt could threaten Libya’s oil production and spread to other countries in the region. French oil giant Total said it started to wind down its oil operations in Libya, where it produced an average of 55,000 barrels per day last year. That follows similar moves and closures by other oil companies.

The rules will create a net of about 2,000 jobs, it added. Environmentalists and industry expressed cautious optimism about the rules, though neither group was completely pleased. Bob Bessette, president of the Council of Industrial Boiler Owners, said the rules still need work but “decrease the economic impacts and achieve greater health benefits” Shelley Vinyard, a toxics advocate for Environment America, said: “While this rule is modest in comparison to the standard proposed last April, we applaud the EPA for its continued commitment to our health and our environment.” Said Frank O’Donnell, president of the advocacy group Clean Air Watch: “It appears that EPA has addressed many of the industry complaints while still putting out standards that would bring significant public health benefits. “Let’s hope that EPA

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration scaled back on demands for heavy industrial boilers to cut toxic air emissions, a sign it may be willing to compromise with businesses and Republicans on future air pollution rules. The Environmental Protection Agency on Wednesday issued final regulations on cutting air pollutants such as mercury and soot at boilers, which provide heat and power at factories, and incinerators. The new standards will cost paper-product makers, chemical plants and manufacturers $2.1 billion a year, down from $3.9 billion annually that rules proposed last year would have cost, the EPA said. While the rules are only a minor part of the EPA’s agenda this year, they come at a time when the agency is racing to deliver on President Obama’s promise to show the world that the United States is taking

action on climate change. Manufacturers and other industries have complained that a slate of looming EPA rules on toxic pollution and greenhouse gases would kill jobs while the economy is fragile. Many lawmakers in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives have said the EPA would unfairly burden business. The final rules were more flexible than the proposed regulation, by allowing, for example, companies to fine-tune their pollution systems rather than add costly new controls.


OLYMPIA — Lawmakers want to allow state-funded park-andride lots to contract with private vendors to provide services for commuters. A bill proposed Wednesday by state Sen. Steve Hobbs, D-Lake Stevens, would allow the state Department of Transportation or any local transit agency using state money for a park-and-ride to contract with private vendors, such as restaurants or coffee shops, to lease part of the lot. The revenue gained from the lease agreements would go first to the local agency to help operate and maintain the lot. Money beyond that would be funneled into the state’s multimodal transportation and motor vehicle funds.

benefit the district or that could have been done by district employees. The audit has been turned over to Seattle police and King County prosecutors. The school board has hired a private attorney to investigate. The district’s internal auditor resigned in December as the district prepared to fire him, and another district manager reportedly has disappeared as investigators have sought to question him. This special audit follows two others over the past year that also have been critical of how well the district oversees public funds.

Anderson’s station easy to recognize IT WASN’T HARD for several Forks folks to recognize the Jan. 27 “Picture from the Past”: Anderson’s Flying A service station in 1955. It stood on the corner of A Street, between Forks Avenue (U.S. Highway 101) and Spartan Avenue. The Golden Gate Chinese Restaurant is now at that location. Bert Fletcher from Port Angeles writes that “Anderson Motor Co. was owned by the late Art Anderson. To the right were gas pumps and a single stall lube room. “During this period Art became a Kaiser auto dealer. He also sold the ‘compact’ Henry J. “In the rear of the building was the auto-body shop which was run by Vester Sexton along with Bob Dorsey. “The house in the background belonged to Ed Lewis who, I believe, worked as a mechanic for Art.” The present Veterans of Foreign Wars Hall is located where the Lewis house stood.



was a showroom where Art sold Kaiser, Frazer and Henry J. cars (until those car companies went

out of business). He also sold Studebakers and then Plymouths. He offered Associated Gas at the time he finally sold his business, in 1960. Eddy Maupin, a former Forks resident, remembers the building as being Art Anderson’s Flying A Station that sold Kaiser and Frazer autos along with a lot of secondhand cars. He noted that Art also had a wrecking/towing service and later a wrecking yard.

Dan Anderson was more definitive: “My dad started the On down the block business in the 1940s and was at that location until Bert goes on to say that 1960, when he moved it to the building faced toward its current location at West the east.

By 1978, Harry Lefler purchased Art’s property and built a restaurant called Hungry Harry’s. He offered a complete breakfast menu and short-orders for the rest of the day. Hungry Harry’s stayed in business for 13 years, until it became the Golden Gate Restaurant under new ownership in 1992. Forks has seen many changes in the past 50 years, but there are still old familiar businesses around the town. The Almar Building still offers a variety of shops. Leppell’s flower shop still stands, as does the Golden Gate Restaurant. West End Motors was operated by Dan and his brother, Artie Anderson, for 35 years until Artie left the business. It’s now owned and operated by Dan and Cheryl Anderson and their sons, Kyle and Eric. Dan says: “We have changed the business over the years from marine and RV sales and service to lube, oil and filter, exhaust, new wheels and new tires, and still have 24-hour towing and auto wrecking. “One year ago, Cheryl started West End Vehicle Licensing at West End Motors — where Dad and

well. In the late 1940s, he and his wife, Edna, started City Cash Market on Main Street. The Leppells had 96 frozen-food lockers in their meat market. The lockers were accessed by a turntable, where each customer punched in a number and the locker rotated to them. The patrons each had their own padlock on their lockers. The Leppells began ordering flowers from Port Angeles, which arrived by bus, for delivery to their Forks customers. In the late 1950s, they built another meat market along with a flower shop on a side street near the Flying A.

Facebook has been added . . . and it’s something you might like I SUPPOSE IT’S bad form, and probably even poorer grammar, to begin a column with “Uh, well . . . ” Or I could begin by confessing that I probably am what a colleague characterized me to be: “an analog man in a digital world.” But I’m not entirely certain that I know what that means. I suspect it alludes to the fact that I am somewhat anachronistic, but that sounds a bit like saying that something is a “little prehistoric,” which makes no sense at all. Thus, I’m reduced to beginning this column with: Uh, well . . . It appears that I’m being dragged, kicking and screaming, into a few years ago — specifically, into the world of “social media.” I think you all have pretty much gotten the drift by now that we at “Information & Assistance” are in the business of providing “help.” Interestingly, help is of remarkably little help if you’ve never heard of it or don’t know where to find it.

Fun ’n’ Advice

Peninsula Daily News

Letter inspires others to help kids


DEAR ABBY: Thank you for printing the letter from the woman who paid for her neighbor’s children’s school lunch bill. “Lending a Hand in the Midwest” was angry to discover they didn’t qualify for free lunches because “their parents were just a couple of dollars over the limit.” To top it off, the children’s father is doing his second tour in Afghanistan. Because you encouraged your readers to contact local schools to give a few dollars to a child in need of a meal, it inspired me to speak to the principal in our district. Not only did the principal like my fundraising idea, he has allowed me time on campus to promote the fundraiser. Twenty-seven students will be joining me after school in making lollipops to sell at an upcoming event. Local businesses and individuals have donated most of the supplies necessary to make this a successful drive to help the children in need. Our goal is to raise $1,000 for this cause. I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to “Lending” for sharing a great idea. Happily Paying It Forward in Hawaii

For Better or For Worse


Dear Happily: Thank you for spreading the message. “Lending’s” generous act of kindness elicited many interesting and thought-provoking responses. Read on:

Frank & Ernest

Dear Abby: I am a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the Vietnam Veterans of America, the American Legion and the American Legion Riders Association. One of the main functions of our organizations is to help our veterans and their families in any way we can. You would be amazed at the monies and help expended to our veterans, soldiers and their families that doesn’t make the news because being “needy” is perceived as some kind of fault. To respond to a need, we must know about it. Abby, please tell your readers if there is a problem, contact your local VFW, American Legion, AmVets, etc., and we will respond. Frank in Burlington, Wis.


Dear Abby: I am currently serving in the military and have never thought to donate to school lunches. I’m happy knowing people are watching out for the troops’ kids.



Van Buren

As soon as I return home from Iraq, I will make the call to see where I can help. Airman Who Has Been There Dear Abby: A lot of families are in the same situation. We have three kids and are $8 over the “allowed

financial amount.” What’s not taken into consideration is the $100 my husband pays for Internet each month he’s serving in Afghanistan so our 8-year-old son with Asperger’s can “see” his daddy. This lessens the anxiety, compounded by his dad’s deployment, that is associated with his autism. God bless “Lending a Hand” for her gift to that family. Abbie in Rineyville, Ky. Dear Abby: I work in a public school. The administrators and the school nurse have daily contact with “kids in need” who could benefit enormously from small donations. I encourage people to contact their local schools and inquire about donating new clothes and/or toiletries to a child in need. The child’s identity will not be revealed, but sizes and current clothing trends can be provided, and the donor will have the satisfaction of knowing the donation is helping a child “fit in” and will make a huge difference in that child’s self-esteem. Marcia in West Virginia Dear Abby: My son’s homework was to find three living heroes in today’s world. I showed him the letter from “Lending a Hand” and told him the writer is a perfect example of a hero. Giving of oneself is a lesson I’m trying to teach my son so lending a helping hand will be second nature to him. Melissa in San Jose, Calif.

The Last Word in Astrology By Eugenia Last

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Look over your books and personal paperwork and you will find something interesting that you overlooked. You may have to argue your concern with an institution or government agency but it will be worth it. 5 stars TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t get railroaded into doing things for free when you need the cash. It’s important not to underestimate yourself. A bad job will result in a poor review and possible job demotion or loss. Call in favors. 3 stars

Rose is Rose

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Someone is watching your every move and, with the slightest error, you will be penalized for your shortsightedness. Emotions will play a factor in the way you react personally and professionally. Be sure you have the facts to back you up. 3 stars


CANCER (June 21-July 22): You don’t have to impress anyone if you put every effort into doing your best. Presenting and promoting what you have to offer will lead to an opportunity. Don’t exaggerate about what you have to offer. 3 stars

Dennis the Menace



LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ll be eager to spend, travel and do whatever you can to find a little adventure and excitement. Don’t let your desires turn into a costly venture that will leave you strapped financially. Emotional deception is apparent. 5 stars

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Be honest with yourself about what you want and what you don’t want. Personal changes are necessary. Create the opportunity you need to move forward by eliminating what isn’t working in your life right now. 3 stars

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t be afraid to make a move or to put pressure on someone from whom you need an answer. Love is in the stars and, if you are upfront and honest, you stand a better chance of receiving what you ask for. Personal changes will boost your confidence. 2 stars

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You have to offer what you can to the groups you feel deserve help. Once you get involved in something you believe in, you will begin to meet people who can offer you something in return. It’s time to mix the past and present to find your future. 4 stars

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Limit your spending and don’t fall for a fast-talking salesperson offering a product that claims unrealistic results. Focus on damage control at home where someone is likely to be overindulgent or to overreact. 4 stars SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Put more time into your personal and home life, interacting with the people you love. The things you do to smooth over any personal problems will bring about stellar results, enabling you to follow a sought-after creative path. 3 stars

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Stability, hard work and self-improvement are all in the stars. Learning something new about your past will help you understand where you’ve been making a mistake. It’s time to look honestly at your personal situation. 2 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your aggressive, productive and self-starting approach to both your personal and professional lives will send a signal to friends and enemies alike. Don’t stop until you reach your goals. Now is not the time to rest nor to let someone get away with something. 5 stars

Camry’s flickering has owner stumped Dear Doctor: I have a well-maintained 2000 Toyota Camry LE 2.2 with 128,000 miles. The car runs well but occasionally flashes an ABS, and the radio light flickers with it, too. I also noticed one night that the headlight flickers with it as well. I’ve asked around, and some people tell me it’s the alternator or battery. What do you advise? Ed Dear Ed: The flickering indicates charging voltage variation. A test of the charging system needs to be performed. The problem might be the alternator. Before replacing it, an additional test of the battery and all ground connections should be done. If you do end up replacing the alternator, then I prefer the Bosch brand for its quality and 2-year warranty.
