SEATAC — The Washington State Labor Council voted Saturday to support a resolution asking officials and “friends of labor” to boycott the Sept. 14-18 Elwha dam removals celebration. The resolution was presented during the council’s convention in SeaTac, where the membership passed the resolution during its Saturday morning session, said Lee Whetham, the Olympic Peninsula Building and Construction Trades Council president who spearheaded the boycott effort. The Olympic Peninsula Building and Construction Trades Council is based in Clallam County and also has membership from Jefferson, Kitsap and Mason counties. The Washington Building and Construction Trades Council endorsed the resolution a week earlier. “Celebrate Elwha!” will be a cluster of mid-September events ranging from a science symposium to sunset cruises and concerts. Barb Maynes, Olympic National Park spokeswoman, and Russ Veenema, Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce executive director, both declined to comment on the passage of the resolution Saturday night, saying they wanted to review the resolution first.

PORT ANGELES — Wrongful death and personal injury claims totaling $10,022,700 have been made against Olympic National Park over the death of Bob Boardman, and a full-blown lawsuit may be imminent, according to his estate’s lawyer. “We are intending to file a wrongful death suit,” personal injury lawyer John Messina of Tacoma said. He said the park is liable for Boardman’s death. “Negligence is the basis,” he said Friday. “Our goal is to seek jusBoardman tice in this case and wake up the park system.” Three claims were made. They are from Boardman’s estate; his widow, Susan Chadd of Port Angeles; and her son, Jacob Haverfield, Messina said, and were made as a prelude to likely filing the lawsuit

A mountain goat is shown in Olympic National Park in the vicinity of Switchback Trail, where hiker Bob Boardman was killed by an aggressive goat last fall. against the park in federal District Court in Tacoma. Park officials would not comment on the claims, said Barb Maynes, park spokeswoman. The claims were served on park Superintendent Karen Gustin on May 1, Messina said. Boardman, 63, of Port Angeles was fatally gored by a 370-pound mountain goat while hiking on Klahhane Ridge with Chadd and their friend Pat Willits, also of Port Angeles, on the afternoon of Oct. 16.
“I feel like they weren’t protecting people and the ecosystem, and I feel that on the day of the accident, they responded very poorly to our calls for help,” Chadd said in an interview. According to Chief Park Ranger Colin Smith, the mountain goat had a history of “aggressive behavior.” Boardman had not acted aggressively toward the animal, according to park reports. Turn
PORT ANGELES — Olympic Medical Center union-represented employees plan to picket the hospital Thursday — the day they wanted to strike but were barred by a judge — to protest proposed labor contracts that raise health care costs and don’t guarantee minimum staffing. Service Employees International Union Healthcare 1199NW spokeswoman Linnae Riesen said the informational picket will start at 5 p.m. outside the hospital at 939 E. Caroline St. Nurses and other health care workers who are unionized will participate before and after their shifts and during breaks, Riesen said. Union members will make signs and a banner at 5 p.m. today at 721 E. First St., Suite 102, next to the KONP office, Riesen said.

Passings By The Associated Press
JOHN W. TEETS,77, the former CEO of the Dial and Greyhound corporations in Arizona, has died. Family spokesman Steve Roman said Mr. Teets died Friday night at his Paradise Valley, Ariz., home of complications from Alzheimer’s disease. Mr. Teets once headed several major companies in the 1980s and 1990s including The Dial Corp., a Scottsdale-based soap maker. He also was the chief executive officer of the Phoenix-based Greyhound Lines, the nation’s largest provider of intercity bus transportation. Greyhound Lines was sold in 1986, and the Dial Corp. was spun off into two separate companies that included the Phoenix-based Viad Corp. in 1996. Mr. Teets retired from the company in 1997.
ANNETTE CHARLES, 63, an actress best-known for her role as Cha Cha DiGregorio in “Grease,”
has died. Longtime friend Tom LaBonge, a Los Angeles councilman, said she died in the city after a battle with cancer. She died Wednesday night, said her agent, Derek Maki. Her death comes a little more than two months after the death of “Grease” actor Jeff Conaway, whose character Kenickie was Cha Cha’s date at the school dance. Oozing a sultry confidence on film, Ms. Charles introduced her character at the dance by saying, “They call me Cha Cha, ’cause I’m the best dancer at St. Bernadette’s.” “With the worst reputation!” responded Frenchie, played by actress Didi Conn. Ms. Charles also appeared on many television shows during the 1970s and early 1980s, including “Barnaby Jones,” “The Bionic Woman,” “Magnum, P.I.,” “Bonanza,” “The Mod Squad,” “Gunsmoke” and “The Flying Nun.”
She later became a speech professor under her birth name, Annette Cardona, at California State University, Northridge.

1936 (75 years ago) Prospect bits will begin probing deep under Hoh Head again this week as the Washington Gas and Oil Co. resumes operations. Malcolm Scott, veteran Peninsula driller, said in Aberdeen that he will be taking his drilling crew back to the mouth of the Hoh River to end a drilling shutdown of a few weeks. Well Kipling No. 1 has bottomed at less than 400 feet and at best has pumped and flowed at a 3.5-barrel per hour pace, he reported.

1961 (50 years ago) Port Angeles police and firemen patrolled city streets last night in search of unnecessary watering after the city’s water reserve dropped to a danger level. The shortage developed after a two-day shutdown of the main water line from Morse Creek to the city’s storage reservoirs. The wooden line was exposed when the surface level of a peat bog lowered during construction of a new line and the water flow was shut down. Fearing the exposed old line would break under the water pressure, crews tied the wooden line to a log
spanning the bog and reinforced it. But it will take time for water reflowing through the line to refill Peabody Heights reservoir and others to acceptable levels.

■ Robert Fowler, 73, of Sequim — the founder of the Peninsula Dream Machines car club who has driven his Edsel in the Joyce Daze Grand Parade in the past — is alive and well. A report on Page C1 Friday quoted Bob Pensworth of Joyce as saying erroneously that the man who drove the Edsel in the past would be missed because he had been killed. Another man named Robert Fowler was shot to death in June in Port Angeles at the age of 63. The story also erroneously described Pensworth as webmaster of Joyce Daze. He is not. He is webmaster of www.joycewa.

A report on Page A7 Friday incorrectly said that in the past, it took only one vote to move a write-in candidate to the general election. The point is moot now because a write-in candidate, just like other candidates, must be one of the top two vote-getters to move on to the general election.

Looking Back From the files of The Associated Press
TODAY IS SUNDAY, Aug. 7, the 219th day of 2011. There are 146 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: ■ On Aug. 7, 1961, Yale psychology professor Stanley Milgram began conducting his famous — as well as controversial — human behavior experiments concerning obedience toward authority figures. In the experiment, supervised volunteers were fooled into believing they were punishing a “learner” in an adjacent room for answering test questions incorrectly by administering increasingly strong electrical shocks, though in fact there were no shocks. Most of the “teachers,” with verbal prodding, kept delivering what they thought were actual jolts even as the “learner” cried out in pain and banged on the door before falling silent. On this date:
■ In 1782, Gen. George Washington created the Order of the Purple Heart, a decoration to recognize merit in enlisted men and noncommissioned officers. ■ In 1882, the famous feud between the Hatfields of West Virginia and the McCoys of Kentucky erupted into full-scale violence. ■ In 1911, movie director Nicholas Ray (”Rebel Without a Cause”) was born in Galesville, Wis. ■ In 1942, U.S. and Allied forces landed at Guadalcanal, marking the start of the first major Allied offensive in the Pacific during World War II. ■ In 1947, the balsa wood raft Kon-Tiki, which had carried a sixman crew 4,300 miles across the Pacific Ocean, crashed into a reef in a Polynesian archipelago; all six crew members reached land safely. ■ In 1959, the United States launched the Explorer 6 satellite,
which sent back images of Earth. ■ In 1964, Congress passed the Gulf of Tonkin resolution, giving President Lyndon B. Johnson broad powers in dealing with reported North Vietnamese attacks on U.S. forces. ■ In 1971, the Apollo 15 moon mission ended successfully as its command module splashed down in the Pacific Ocean. ■ In 1991, former Iranian Prime Minister Shapour Bakhtiar, 76, was slain, along with his aide, at his home in suburban Paris. ■ In 1998, terrorist bombs at U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania killed 224 people, including 12 Americans. ■ Ten years ago: Three researchers told a committee at the National Academy of Sciences they were unswayed by arguments against human cloning and would soon try to clone human beings. The Vatican denounced what it
called a “slanderous campaign” against the Roman Catholic Church over the actions of Pope Pius XII during the Holocaust. Harmonica virtuoso Larry Adler died in London at age 87. ■ Five years ago: Oil prices jumped after BP said it had discovered corrosion so severe it would have to replace 16 miles of pipeline at the huge Prudhoe Bay oil field in Alaska. Colombia’s President Alvaro Uribe was sworn in for an unprecedented second term. ■ One year ago: Elena Kagan was sworn in as the 112th justice and fourth woman to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. A healthy-looking Fidel Castro appealed to President Barack Obama to stave off global nuclear war in an address to parliament that marked his first official government appearance since emergency surgery four years earlier.

KABUL, Afghanistan — Insurgents shot down a U.S. military helicopter during fighting in eastern Afghanistan, killing 30 Americans — most of them belonging to the same elite Navy SEALs unit that killed Osama bin Laden — as well as seven Afghan commandos, U.S. officials said Saturday. It was the deadliest single loss for American forces in the decadeold war. The downing was a stinging blow to the lauded, tight-knit SEAL Team 6, months after its crowning achievement.
Setback for coalition It was also a heavy setback for the U.S.-led coalition as it begins to draw down thousands of combat troops fighting what has become an increasingly costly and unpopular war. None of the 22 SEAL personnel killed in the crash were part of the team that killed bin Laden in a May raid in Pakistan. The strike is also likely to boost the morale of the Taliban in a key province that controls a strategic approach to the capital Kabul.

Briefly: World Hacker with ties to Europe hits U.S. sheriffs LONDON — The group known as Anonymous said Saturday it hacked into about 70 mostly rural law enforcement websites in the United States, a breach that Gassville, Ark., Police Chief Tim Mayfield said had leaked information about an ongoing investigation. The loose-knit international hacking collective posted a cache of data to the Web early Saturday, including emails stolen from officers, tips that appeared to come from members of the public, profiles of gang members, credit card numbers and other sensitive information. Last month, the FBI and British and Dutch officials made 21 arrests, many of them related to the group’s attacks on Internet payment provider PayPal Inc. Anonymous said it had stolen 10 gigabytes’ worth of data in all. The emails were mainly from sheriffs’ offices in Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri and Mississippi. Many of the websites were operated by Brooks-Jeffrey Marketing, a Mountain Home, Ark., media services hosting company. Most, if not all, were either unavailable Saturday or had been wiped clean of content.
Libyan rebels attack BIR AYAD, Libya — Rebels launched a new offensive Saturday out of their stronghold in
Libya’s western mountains, battling regime forces in a drive toward the heartland of Moammar Gadhafi’s rule on the Mediterranean coast. The rebels are aiming to break a monthslong deadlock and eventually fight their way to the capital, Tripoli. Booms of shelling and rocket fire echoed from the front lines, centered around the town of Bir Ghanam, where the rebel force backed by tanks fought Gadhafi’s troops much of the day. Later, witnesses saw flattened buildings presumably targeted in NATO airstrikes and three smoldering government tanks in the town.
Miners targeted COPIAPO, Chile — It has been a bittersweet anniversary for Chile’s rescued miners, who were honored as heroes in their hometown only to come under attack by anti-government protesters who threw fruit and small stones at them, accusing them of being ungrateful, greedy sellouts. Chilean President Sebastian Pinera and his ministers joined most of the 33 miners Friday at a Catholic Mass and then the inauguration of a regional museum exhibit recognizing their remarkable survival story. But the events were marred by scuffles between riot police and students, teachers, environmentalists and other miners, all trying to make Pinera bow to their pressure on issues from reforming public education and increasing miners’ pay to stopping controversial dams and power plants.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry hosts a call to prayer for a nation in crisis Saturday in Houston.
Perry courts evangelicals, calls for prayers to fix nation The Associated Press
HOUSTON — Texas Gov. Rick Perry sent a strong message to the nation’s evangelicals Saturday: He is a member of the important constituency for Republicans that he soon may call upon to help him secure the GOP presidential nomination. Perry hosted what he called a national day of prayer, an event at Reliant Arena that drew roughly 30,000 people and that was broadcast on Christian cable channels and the Internet nationwide, including in at least 1,000 churches. “Father, our heart breaks for America,” Perry said in 12 minutes of remarks that included prayer and Bible passages — but no direct mention of politics or his
presidential plans. “We see discord at home. We see fear in the marketplace. We see anger in the halls of government and, as a nation, we have forgotten who made us, who protects us, who blesses us.” He asked Christians to turn to God for answers to the nation’s troubles and asked the audience to pray for President Barack Obama — though he did not use the Democratic incumbent’s name — as well as for the American troops killed in the weekend attack on a U.S. helicopter in Afghanistan. The moment gave Perry a national spotlight before a pivotal voting group in the GOP nomination fight — in the early voting states of Iowa and South Carolina in particular — as he nears a deci-
sion on whether to run for president. His entrance into the field could shake up the contest because Perry could attract both social and economic conservatives at a time when the GOP electorate is unsettled with the current slate of candidates. Many have been campaigning for months and are trying to break out of the pack. As Perry held court in Houston, for instance, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann were holding multiple campaign events each day in Iowa ahead of next weekend’s test vote, a straw poll that is a barometer for a campaign’s organizational strength five months before the state’s leadoff caucuses.

World: Police shooting death triggers London riot
World: Pocketbook protest by Israelis is biggest ever
DOZENS OF ARMED villagers in southern Mexico confronted members of a suspected crime gang in their home. A child, a woman and four men were killed in the resulting gunbattle. A statement Saturday from the public security chief for Oaxaca state said a town assembly voted to arm 90 of its members and sent them to detain the group allegedly behind cattle thefts, rapes and murders. The people in the house refused to surrender and opened fire first. Remote Mexican villages without a police presence sometimes engage in mob justice. But it is unusual for them to do so with weapons.
PRESIDENT HUGO CHAVEZ said Saturday that Venezuela is not immune to the economic woes afflicting the U.S. and Europe despite efforts to distance itself from world powers and establish a socialist system. Chavez warned that economic problems around the globe would probably hurt Venezuela as international oil prices fall. Venezuela is one of the world’s top petroleum producers. But he added that the South American nation has partially protected itself by diversifying its economy and forging trade ties with countries like China and Russia.
THE GRITTY NORTH London neighborhood of Tottenham exploded in anger Saturday night after a young man was shot to death by police. Two patrol cars, a building and a double-decker bus were torched as rioters clashed with officers in front of the Tottenham Police Station, where people had gathered to demand “justice” for the death of a 29-year-old killed in an apparent gunfight. Shop windows were smashed as residents looted the stores, pushing shopping carts full of stolen goods down the street. Police said there were about 300 people gathered.
AT LEAST A quarter-million Israelis fed up with the mounting cost of living poured into the streets of the country’s major cities Saturday night to demand that their leaders address their plight. The snowballing protest, which started out three weeks ago with a few 20-somethings pitching a tent encampment on a posh Tel Aviv street, has swiftly become a big headache for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, seen by many middle-class Israelis as too friendly to big business. An aide to the Israeli leader said the government would soon devise a program to break the monopolies and cartels he blames for Israel’s economic ills.

PORT TOWNSEND — Superior Court Judge Craddock Verser hopes to be able to work while he undergoes aggressive chemotherapy treatment to combat stage one pancreatic cancer. “I’m anxious to come back to work, although I don’t know when that will be,” Verser said Saturday. “Treatment will be for one day a week, and hopefully, I can work the other four. “But nothing’s certain,” he added. “With cancer treatment, there are a million ifs, ands or buts.” Stage one is the earliest stage of cancer. The most severe is stage four. Verser, 62, said he is in

Verser said his medical team is optimistic, calling him “young and strong” in comparison with other cancer patients. He has been impressed by the treatment, which addresses nutritional and spiritual issues in addition to fighting the tumor. “I have never been in a hospital in my life,” he said. “This has been a new
Voter turnout at 22.66% for Clallam’s primary Peninsula Daily News
Voter turnout in the all-mail primary election grew to 22.66 percent in Clallam County by Friday. Out of 19,097 ballots issued, 4,327 had been returned, said Patty Rosand, Clallam County auditor. To be counted, ballots must be placed in a drop box by 8 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 16, or postmarked by that date. Drop boxes are at Sequim City Hall at 152 W. Cedar St., Sequim Vehicle/Vessel Licensing at 1001 E. Washington St. and at the Clallam County Courthouse at 223 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles. Jefferson County vot-
ers had returned 27.25 percent — 5,948 out of 21,827 issued — by Friday. The Clallam County primary is being held only in Commissioner District No. 1 and involves 41.37 percent of the 45,927 active registered voters in the county. The boundaries of District No. 1 are from McDonald Creek to the eastern county line.
One contest Only one contest will be narrowed in the toptwo primary: the race for Sequim Mayor Pro Tem Laura Dubois’ seat in which the incumbent is challenged by Ron Fairclough and John Miller. The top two vote-get-
ters in the primary will advance to the Nov. 8 general election. In addition to the Sequim race on the Clallam County primary ballot, voters in District No. 1 will vote on the race between Sequim Democrat Linda Barnfather and Sequim Republican Jim McEntire for the Clallam County commissioner’s seat now held by Steve Tharinger, who did not run for re-election. That race also will be on the general election ballot and will be voted on by all voters in the county.

experience for me.” Verser, the Jefferson County Superior Court judge since 1994, went on vacation July 15. He was initially hospitalized July 19 in Kalispell, Mont., where he had traveled with his wife after her mother died. He was admitted to the Kalispell Regional Medical Center with a complex abdominal situation that included a suspicious spot on his pancreas, Moore said. He was released July 22 with medication and a care plan and returned home, but the symptoms recurred. The situation was determined to be too complicated for Jefferson Healthcare hospital, so Verser sought treatment in Seattle. During his absence, the judge’s chair has been occu-
pied by visiting judges from Kitsap and Clallam counties along with court commissioners, who can hear all trials aside from jury trials unless both parties agree to the substitution.
Visiting judges “I’m grateful for all the sacrifices and support from my fellow judges,” Verser said. Verser said his wife, Joyce, whom he married in February in a small courthouse ceremony, was his “savior” for her keeping track of his treatment regimen and getting him to appointments on time. He also singled out court administrator Michelle Moore for managing the court schedule and keeping people informed.
“Everyone has pitched in, and I want to thank them for that,” he said. Verser, a native of Virginia, arrived in Port Townsend in 1986 and began work as the ClallamJefferson public defender, according to his Superior Court biography. He practiced law in Jefferson County from 1991 to 2004, representing the Port of Port Townsend and serving as a part-time public defender during that time.

BAINBRIDGE ISLAND — A ribbon-cutting ceremony Saturday at Bainbridge Island marked the second phase of the development of a monument that marks the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II. It’s a 276-foot-long wall — one foot for each of the islanders who were interned. The first phase of the memorial included walkways and a passenger dropoff area. Future phases will include an interpretive center and a pier at the site of the former dock where soldiers loaded residents on a ferry in 1942. The Bainbridge Island memorial is a satellite of the Minidoka National Historic Site in Idaho. It commemorates the Minidoka War Relocation

The proposed resolution Whetham said Watts, also asked that Washington’s
congressional delegation contact President Barack Obama about the lack of a project labor agreement. The wording may have been changed before it was adopted. The wording of the adopted resolution was not available Saturday evening. Workers will be paid prevailing wages for the area, a requirement of the federal Davis-Bacon Act, which governs wage structures for public works projects, according to the National Park Service, the lead agency for the project.
Samantha Richardson, a spokeswoman for the Park Service’s Denver Service Center, has said prevailing wages exceeded $31 an hour for power equipment operators, $35 an hour for carpenters and $40 an hour for electricians. Whetham said a project labor agreement would guarantee that workers not be misclassified on a pay scale lower than what they should be. Barnard Construction Co. Inc. of Bozeman, Mont., won the $27 million, three-year
contract to tear down the Glines Canyon and Elwha dams, beginning Sept. 17. Company project manager Brian Krohmer has estimated that the company will have 12 to 14 of its own workers, about half of those administrative personnel, out of an estimated 40 workers at the peak of construction. Krohmer said local subcontractors include Bruch & Bruch Construction Inc., Northwestern Territories Inc., Straits Electric, Pacific Office Equipment Inc., Star
Welding & Wrenching, N C Power Systems and United Rentals, all of Port Angeles, and D&H Enterprises of Forks. Tear-down of the Glines Canyon and Elwha dams on the Elwha River is expected to last three years. The Elwha River Restoration Project is intended to restore salmon habitat.

Pickets: Union threatened 18-hour strike Aug. 11 Continued from A1 SEIU Healthcare 1199NW — which represents 205 nurses, 120 service workers and 38 dietary workers at OMC — threatened to conduct an 18-hour strike Aug. 11. A Kitsap County Superior Court judge granted OMC a two-week temporary restraining order to stop the strike Wednesday and set a hearing Aug. 17, the day the order expires, on enjoining the union from striking “during the pendency of this action.” The court found the strike was illegal.
OMC officials said it would have cost $600,000 to hire and train 150 replacement workers to work from 6 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. Mediated contract talks resumed Thursday with no settlement.

Man assures friends he’s not dead By Leah Leach
Peninsula Daily News
SEQUIM — Robert Fowler was busy Friday telling his friends he isn’t dead. A report in the Peninsula Daily News on Page C1 Friday quoted Bob Pens worth of Joyce as saying that Fowler, who had driven his restored Edsel in the Joyce Daze parade in the past, would be missed this year because he had been shot and killed in Port Angeles in June. He wasn’t. The Robert Fowler who was killed in June was 63 years old, moved to Port Angeles from Salem, Ore., about a year and a half ago and lived at 209 E. Vashon Ave. in Port Angeles.

Pensworth’s confusion upset him — but he was glad to learn that Fowler was indeed alive. “My wife and I knew Bob Fowler, and we were shocked when we heard of the death,” Pensworth said. “I’m so happy to find out that he’s still among us and that he’s still going to be driving his antique cars. “To see those cars beau Joyce Daze tifully restored reminds me of our history.

PORT ANGELES — The investigation into the killing of Robert Fowler of Port Angeles in June remains open and active, said Deputy Chief Brian Smith. The 63-year-old man was allegedly fatally shot by his neighbor, Bobby Smith, 58, while in Smith’s home June 20. Bobby Smith was not arrested in connection with the shooting. He has not been charged with a crime. According to initial reports, Bobby Smith phoned dispatchers at 1:25 p.m. June 20 to say he had been involved in a shooting
with a neighbor. Fowler lived next door to Smith at 209 E. Vashon Ave. “We’re actively working the case,” Deputy Chief Smith said, saying that all five detectives and several officers on the police force have worked on it.
State Patrol helps The State Patrol also assisted. “It’s a major investiga tion,” Deputy Chief Smith said. “We reach out as wide as we need to to complete the investigation.” Deputy Chief Smith said the department is
lacking some of the ballis tic and forensic test results from the State Crime Lab, “which is pretty normal in a case like this.” He also said the depart ment is working closely with the Clallam County prosecuting attorney. Karla Pennington, Fowler’s fiancee, said he had moved to Port Angeles about a year and a half ago from Salem, Ore. They were planning to wed within a couple of months, she said. “I was used to talking to him every day, and now I don’t have that anymore,” she said. “He was a wonderful guy.”

PORT ANGELES — The Peninsula Dream Machines car club expects more than 100 cars at a fundraiser in September for the Shane Park playground, said a club organizer. It will help the Shane Park Playground Committee raise money for a state-ofthe-art play area at the west Port Angeles park. The latest fundraiser, which began Saturday and continues today, is at Swain’s General Store at 602 E. First St., Port Angeles. Members of the play ground committee are sta tioned at Swain’s for a bicycle raffle and fundraiser for the playground campaign. The committee is working with the city of Port Angeles to come up with the $130,000 needed for playground equip ment. The city has set aside $60,000 for the project. Before this weekend’s fundraiser, the committee had raised another $21,000 through a series of commu nity fundraisers over the past year. The new playground will be 111 feet by 57 feet and feature several slides, climb ing areas, swings and a safety surface. Volunteers are raffling off a Baja mini bike and Mon

Vendors will sell items related to cars, and he expects speedboats to be on display. “It’ll be fun,” Upton said. “Everybody’s welcome, and it’s free to attend.” Upton expects some 110 to 150 vintage cars at the show, among them cars from Oregon and from the I Cruis ers car club from Parkers ville, B.C. Registration is $15 per car. All proceeds will go to the playground fundraising effort. A full breakfast is planned for each of the car drivers who also are invited to par ticipate in a poker run the day before, Upton said. The car club with the most cars present will win $100. Trophies will be given in several categories, he said. The car club always has its annual show in Septem ber. For more information about participating in the September event, phone Upton at 360-452-4837.

NASA calls the program by the acronym ASCENDS, which means Active Sensing of CO2 Emissions Over Nights, Days and Seasons. It’s intended to “provide improved ability to predict/ model long-term changes in the climate cycle based both on the understanding of the natural processes driving the variability of natural carbon sources and sinks, and on the transport of carbon through the atmosphere,” NASA says on the website, http:// decadal.gsfc.nasa.gov/ ascends.html.

FORKS — A “flying laboratory” testing components destined to become part of a satellite measuring carbon dioxide in the planet’s air will dip over Quillayute Airport today. People in the Forks area may see the white and blue DC-8, a massive jet with a wing span of 150 feet that was an airliner before NASA acquired it, descending in a spiral over the Quillayute Airport at about 1:45 p.m. It won’t land. It will come down to about 200 feet above the runway and then pull up and away, heading north, said Bill Brockett, a research pilot with NASA at Edwards Air Force Base in Palmdale, Calif., on Saturday. Others on the North Olympic Peninsula aren’t likely to see anything remarkable, he said, since he and the other pilot of the four-engine jet will be flying high, like any airliner. The 26 people onboard are flying from Edwards Air Force Base to test five remote sensing laser-based instruments over the snow and ice fields in the Cascades and the Olympics, Brockett said. The instruments were developed to measure CO2 in
the planet’s air, which isn’t now done from satellites, Brockett said. “It’s like a competition to see which one can be perfected and do the best job,” Brockett said. “Some will probably fly; some will be eliminated.” The components measure carbon dioxide in the air by sending out light and measuring the differences in the light reflected back to pinpoint the chemicals in the air, Brockett said. Today’s test is to see how snow and ice fields reflect back the light. The dip over Quillayute Airport is to get a “reality check” by pulling in air samples in real time at the surface and comparing the measurements to the results from remote reading instruments. This allows researchers to calibrate the instruments. Originally, researchers planned to test the components over glacier fields in the panhandle of Alaska and southeast of Anchorage, but bad weather squelched that

In Tough Times We All Need to Give A Little, Including SEIU OMC has been the locally owned and operated hospital for our neighbors on the North Olympic Peninsula for more than 60 years. And we’d like to stay that way. But the truth is, the recession and reductions in Medicare and Medicaid are hitting us hard – our costs are increasing and our income is down. The course we are on is not sustainable. In tough times, we all must give a little. And during our current negotiations with SEIU, we’re asking them to do just that. OMC nurses and health care workers will still earn some of the highest wages in the county and won’t pay a dime for their own health care. OMC is proposing a cost-share of medical benefits for children similar to what most other hospitals already have in place. In times like these, we think that’s fair. And we hope you do, too.
We’re all in this together.

Victoria, PA closer Court to reconsider Ressam sentence than one thinks EDITOR’S NOTE: Jack Knox, a regular columnist for the daily Times-Colonist of Victoria, a PDN news partner, visited Port Angeles last week and filed this report. By Jack Knox
Victoria Times Colonist
PORT ANGELES — “You know Robin Farrell?” I have just gone waaay up in Jessica Kahler’s estimation. T h e 21-year-old, p a r k e d behind the counter at Port Angeles’ Dazzled by Twilight store, is Knox addicted to Victoria’s KOOL-FM (107.3) and won’t listen to anything else. Loves Farrell and morning co-host Brian Bailey. Kahler’s colleague, Brandon Doran, on the other hand, tunes in to The Zone (91.3 FM).
Ferry terminal Down by the MV Coho ferry terminal, Toby Applegate says he prefers Ed Bain and The Q (100.3 FM). Up the hill at Port Book and News, Alan Turner has found a spiritual radio home: “We listen to the CBC [90.5 FM] a lot.” Here’s a news flash for Victorians who smugly take Yankee ignorance of all things Canuck as a sign of Canadian superiority: Our neighbors on the Olympic Peninsula are far more plugged in to us than we are to them. They listen to our radio, watch our TV and, yes, even buy the Times Colonist at Turner’s bookstore.
If weather permits “If I want a weather forecast, I’ll check Victoria,” said Mary Beavers, standing in a First Street antique store where The Ocean (98.6 FM) played in the background. “You’re a closer neighbor to us than anyone else.” Port Angeles, population 19,000, is just 18.7 miles across the Strait from Victoria (close enough to make out the Canada Day fireworks) but isolated from everywhere else, giving its residents a unique relationship with us. The Olympics loom to the south (Victorians have a magnificent national park on their doorstep; it’s just in someone else’s nation) while Seattle is two hours

to the east. Nothing lies to the west except the vampires and werewolves of Forks, the focal point of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight novels. The result is a place that feels close to us, both geographically and culturally, but still separate, comfortably familiar yet unmistakably American. Safeway sells wine, gas is $3.69 a gallon, and the old courthouse has a clock tower straight out of “Back to the Future,” but other than that, Port Angeles is Duncan. (Retiree-heavy Sequim, by contrast, is Sidney, but with a marina named after John Wayne.) Selling points to visitors include the park, the Victoria-Seattle link and Meyer’s vampire saga. Twilight tourism has faded but is still big, tweenage girls flocking to places mentioned in the books, which have sold more than 100 million copies worldwide.
in Chinatown. Applegate, who lives in Sequim, goes to White Spot. His wife, Candi Applegate, had so many visitors who wanted her to take them to Butchart Gardens that she bought an annual pass. “Everyone does the Strathcona,” says Andrea Walden Morden, a server at Bella Italia. Victoria is more than just a quick getaway, though. The Applegates come up to go square dancing. Ball teams cross the border, too. A surprising number of Americans come here for medical and dental work. A few years ago, Victoria carved out a nice niche trade in pharmaceutical tourism. Americans would sail in, get the Canadian equivalent of their U.S. prescription at a walk-in clinic, then have it filled at a downtown pharmacy.
The difference between Canadian and U.S. drug costs could more than pay for the trip. “We used to go for the dental,” Candi Applegate said. “But the money’s changed now,” Toby added. Right, the money. The once-anemic loonie has nosed past the U.S. dollar, making us less of a bargain. Passport requirements have thickened the border, too. Still, international travel means a lot to our neighbors. “On any given night, 20 [percent] to 25 percent of the rooms in Port Angeles are occupied by people using the Coho,” says Russ Veenema, executive director of the local chamber of commerce. Veenema is keen to lure more traffic the other way with events like today’s Ride the Hurricane, when cyclists will have the steep climb of Hurricane Ridge Road all to themselves. Don’t just stand on Dallas Road and look at the Olympics, he says; come over and explore. Learn as much about them as they know about us.
It’s Groundhog Day every night for the chef at Port Angeles’ Bella Italia, turning out order after order of mushroom ravioli, the dish consumed there by the series’ fictional heroine. The guestbook in the Dazzled by Twilight souvenir store is filled with names from Taiwan, Australia, Holland, everywhere. “This town got put on the map because of Twilight,” says Kahler. Victoria was a regular field trip destination when Kahler was in school. “It was my favorite place to go.” The Royal B.C. Museum, the Imax, the Legislature (“The best part was looking up at the ceiling”) and, of course, the candy stores. Many on the Olympic Peninsula have a favorite Victoria haunt.

SEATTLE — The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will once again consider whether the 22-year prison sentence imposed on would-be millennium bomber Ahmed Ressam by a federal judge in Seattle was adequate. Ressam, now 42, w a s arrested in Port Angeles after he arrived aboard the MV Coho Ressam ferry from Victoria in a rental car loaded with bomb-making materials Dec. 14, 1999. It was later revealed Ressam was on his way to bomb Los Angeles International Airport on Jan. 1, 2000. Last year, a divided three-judge panel of the court voted to reject the sentence imposed — for the second time — by U.S. District Judge John Coughenour, questioning his impartiality and saying the sentence failed to protect the public from the alQaida-trained terrorist. An order by Circuit Chief Judge Alex Kozinski, issued last week, vacated that ruling and sent the case to be reheard by a larger panel of judges. Coughenour presided over Ressam’s trial in the spring of 2001. Ressam later credited the fairness of the proceedings when he decided to cooperate with federal authorities after he was convicted of attempting to bomb the Los Angeles airport. Ressam became a crucial source of information about al-Qaida in the months after the Sept. 11 attacks, and as a result, federal prosecutors ini-
he Department of Justice told the judge that prosecutors in New York had been forced to drop charges against two other terrorism suspects — including the man believed to be al-Qaida’s chief recruiter in Western Europe — whose prosecutions turned on Ressam’s testimony. tially suggested a sentence of around 35 years for crimes that could have resulted in life in prison, including a count of conspiracy to commit an act of international terrorism. Sentencing guidelines suggested a 65-year sentence.
2005 sentence Prosecutors appealed when Coughenour first imposed the 22-year sentence in 2005. Ressam has been held in solitary confinement and over years of repeated questioning had soured on his cooperation. When the case was sent back to Coughenour for a procedural error in 2008, prosecutors urged the judge to impose the life sentence, saying Ressam had reneged on his deal. Ressam, in the meantime, fired his lawyers and recanted everything he had ever said. The Department of Justice told the judge that prosecutors in New York had been forced to drop charges against two other terrorism suspects — including the man believed to be al-Qaida’s chief recruiter in Western Europe — whose prosecutions turned on Ressam’s testimony. Even so, Coughenour imposed the same sentence, saying the information Ressam provided when he was cooperating almost certainly stopped other attacks and
saved lives. The government appealed that sentence, which resulted in last week’s order. Last year’s 72-page ruling said Coughenour’s decision failed to protect the public. Ressam, an Algerian who trained with al-Qaida in Afghanistan, already has completed nearly half of his sentence and will be 53 years old when he is released. The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Seattle, which handled Ressam’s prosecution, declined to comment. Federal public defender Thomas Hillier, who has represented or advised Ressam since his first court appearance in 1999, applauded the court for granting his request to reconsider the earlier decision, which not only exposed Ressam to many more years in prison, but also stripped Coughenour, the trial judge, of the case. “We were concerned about its impact on the evolution of federal sentencing, as well as how it might impact Ahmed,” Hillier said. “We’re grateful for another shot at it.” Emily Langlie, spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Seattle, said the rehearing is “the next step in holding Mr. Ressam accountable for his crimes.” Ressam is reportedly being held in a solitary confinement cell two stories underground at the “supermax” federal penitentiary in Florence, Colo.

Bruce watch a DVD, and I can’t Cameron remember how to make it work,” she says. “OK,” I say. “Is the DVD player on?” “Should I turn it on?” “Yes, that would probably help.” “OK. Do I use the DVD remote or the TV remote?” “The DVD remote.” “Or, what’s this? This is the cable remote.” “The DVD remote.” “Is this . . . there’s another one here, what’s this one?” “Use the DVD remote.” “OK. The DVD remote. What button do I push?” “The one that says power.” “OK, I pushed it.” “What happened?” “The lights went out on the DVD player.”
“Oh, OK, that means it was already on. Push the button again.” “I don’t remember turning it on.” “Push the button again.” “Would I have had to turn it on to put in the DVD?” “Yes. Push the button again.” “OK, I did. The lights came on and then went off.” “Did you push the button twice?” “I did what you told me.” “OK, push the button again.” “Again?” “Push the button again.” “OK.” “Do you see lights on the DVD player?” “Yes.” “And what do you see on the TV?” “A duck.” “A duck?” “A goose. Some sort of animated thing.” “Is it the movie you wanted to watch?” “No! That’s really funny. No, the movie has Al Pacino. Is that his name?” “OK. Get the TV remote.” “Do you ever watch this? You like animation.” “Mom. How can I know what
show you’re watching? I can’t see what’s on your TV.” “Well I can’t either.” “You can’t see it?” “I mean, I don’t know what show it is.” “Point the TV remote at the TV and push the button that says ‘Menu.’” “OK. Whoa! Now there’s text all over the screen!” “Those are menu selections. What do they say?” “Well, I don’t know.” “What do you mean?” “When I saw the words, I pushed the menu button again, and they went away.” “Why did you push the menu button twice?” “You had me push the DVD button twice.” I sigh. “You’re right. OK. Push the menu button once, then read me the words you see.” “It says, ‘Signal, External Input’ . . . ” “External Input. Highlight External Input and push Select.” “OK. Whoa!” “What happened?” “The dog just about knocked me over.” “Are you OK?” “Of course.” “Did you push select?”
“I can’t remember.” “What does it say on the screen?” “Nothing.” “Nothing? Did you push menu again?” “No. Let me ask your father.” “Wait, why?” “He took the remote. He said he was getting impatient. Bill! Do you want to watch the movie or not?” “Was he able to get the DVD working, then?” “He says he doesn’t care if we watch the movie. But I do. It’s got that actor in it, Mel Gibson. Do you like him? He was so good in ‘Da Vinci Code.’” “He . . . you mean Tom Hanks?” “Who? Was he in the ‘Godfather’ movies?” “No, that was Al Pacino.” “What did I say?” “You said Mel Gibson.” “Well, that’s not what I meant. Who played Indiana Jones?” “That was Harrison Ford.” “OK, not him.” “Mom, why don’t you either hand the phone to Dad or have him give you the remote back?” There’s a loud rustling sound, and then my father comes on the line.
“Hello?” he barks gruffly. “Hi, Dad, I’m trying to help you get the DVD going. Do you have the remote?” “Me? No, I handed it back to your mother.” “Why did she give you the phone, then?” “I don’t know, she traded it for the remote.” “Maybe you should give her the phone back.” There’s a rustling sound and my mom comes back on. “Hello?” “Hi, Mom, so what’s on the screen now?” “The movie!” “What? You got the DVD player working? How?” “I don’t know, I was just pushing buttons.” “Well, if you don’t know how you did it, how will you watch DVDs in the future?” “Oh, that’s simple,” she says brightly. “I’ll just call you!”

“I agree with it, since I’m living in Forks. The Border Patrol makes Forks a safer place.”
“It uses up too much taxpayer money. They went way overboard. Maybe a dozen agents is better. We’re not like the Mexican border. Canadians come and spend money here.”
“I feel it’s a waste of money. The incident in Forks where a man drowned trying to escape them is so sad. They should leave regular people alone. We are all human.”
“Someone must see that there are problems around here that are worse than years ago. If there are problems, then the Border Patrol is a good thing. Also, it’s a job for someone.”

“I’m shocked at the Border Patrol’s increased presence. I wonder what the intent and purpose is. It certainly makes me more aware of my surroundings.”
“I’m for the Border Patrol, but they’re overstaffed now. Those resources could be used other places. Years ago, we did just fine with three agents. Have things changed that much?”
“The Border Patrol is here to protect our borders, and I welcome their presence. I hope they continue to do a good job . . . and keeping illegals out.”

commission meeting of July 25, I have no quarrel with the process led by Mr. Marrs. I am confident the commission charged with recommending new districts that reflect approximately equal populations based on new census data did its job correctly and with integrity. Mr. Marrs jumped to the wrong conclusion. My concern is that as the population of Clallam County shifts eastward, new district boundaries dilute the representation of economic and cultural interests of the West End, since most of the voters in the new West End district do not live and work there. If the county were one homogeneous population from west to east with similar interests, this would not be an issue. Clallam County is fortunate enough to encompass a great diversity of interests — Sequim, Port Angeles and Forks have distinct perspectives — and giving
Our readers’ letters, faxes voice to all three regions in countywide affairs is important. This is especially true of economic issues. The port district is countywide, and the port’s primary mission is to facilitate economic prosperity in the entire county. Many ports in Washington state operate with elected commissioners from district boundaries that do not correspond to county commissioner districts. These reflect specific economic interests or regions. Perhaps one way to ensure diverse regional representation at the Port would be to create additional districts within the county. Expanding from three commissioners to five might provide a better balance of representation of diverse interests, although at additional cost to taxpayers. John M.

Council ‘lemmings’ Port Angeles City Council member Pat Downie was wrong when he said, “I feel like we have a hammer over our heads at [Ecology]. It’s always our skin that gets bruised.” (“Paying For Sewage Overflow Project Permit Mulled By PA,” July 24 PDN). The council should not pass the buck to Ecology. The City Council approved this project on the Strait of Juan de Fuca shoreline to the Rayonier mill tank. The council was handed documents that showed the consultant inflated the project costs and that staff keeps massaging costs upward, now exceeding $4 million just for consultant fees. The majority of the council members consistently approve these never-
ending costs. It is the city’s project, not Ecology’s. Any wrong belongs to the council. It is the council that can stop these neverending costs. This city unnecessarily taxes each household and business, at a minimum $8,500 over a 20-year period for this project. Council could stop this project and direct staff to invest in natural forms of handling and cleaning stormwater and upgrading city stormwater and sewage-piping systems. These steps would stop sewage overflows. Municipalities throughout the nation and the world use these methods and save enormous funds. Some do not even charge their citizens. Earlier this year, the City Council on a majority vote passed an ordinance that no longer allows shoreline permit appeals to the City Council. Turn

‘Gestapo-like’? We appreciate the article in the July 31 PDN article [“‘Black Hole’ For Border Patrol? Whistleblower In D.C.

And since there obviously isn’t enough real work for 40 agents, we have been told that they are monitoring responses to 9-1-1 calls. As a result, residents who are (or look) Hispanic, regardless of their legal status, are afraid to call for emergency help. Imagine needing an ambulance, police protection or the fire department and not knowing if calling for help will result in you or your family members being hauled in for extended questioning by the Border Patrol.

North Olympic splits Kuch’s walk-off hit gives team much-needed win Peninsula Daily News
LAMAR, Colo. — The North Olympic all-star bats caught fire at just the moment in the first day of the 16U Babe Ruth Softball World Series on Saturday. Hours after seeing its offense go silent in a 2-0 loss to Lodi, Calif., North Olympic came up with a dramatic 9-8 walk-off vicThe Associated Press

tory over host Lamar, Colo., to keep its Series hopes alive. Tori Kuch nailed a walk-off RBI triple to cap a wild five-run seventh inning as North Olympic rallied to avoid going 0-2 in its first two games of pool play. North Olympic (1-1) will next play Lancaster, N.H., today at 11 a.m., before closing out pool play
Monday with a game against Fern Creek, Kent. “That was a game we had to have,” North Olympic coach Warren Stevens said of the Saturday night win. “We watched the other two teams [in the pool] and they are pretty damn good. “Our offense was dormant, but they showed resilience in the last inning when we had to have it.” Indeed, North Olympic had scored just four runs in 13 innings prior to the bottom of the seventh barrage against Lamar.
16U World Series Trailing 8-4 entering the frame, the 16U all-stars got triples from Madison Hinrichs, Raelyn Lucas and Ralena Black Crow before Kuch stepped to the plate with the game on the line. Coming up with the score tied and two outs, Kuch responded with a drive that went all the way to the fence and scored Kearsten Cox from first base for the game-winning run. Turn
Spit ball pitcher?
Testing a step in right direction IF THE INITIAL returns in from Congress are any sign, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and union chief DeMaurice Smith scored a big hit by agreeing to blood tests for human growth hormone. That’s important because one Tim of the reasons both pushed for Dahlberg HGH testing was to get politicians in the nation’s capital off their backs. They seem to have succeeded, with influential California Democrat Henry Waxman quickly weighing in to congratulate all parties involved with a “welcome breakthrough in the campaign to rid sports of the scourge of doping.’’ I wouldn’t go that far because, even with a blood test, the odds of catching anyone using HGH are remote. A player tested after, say, a morning practice would have almost had to shoot himself up just before breakfast to test positive. But a breakthrough is a breakthrough even if in the near term it’s largely a symbolic one. Until Goodell and Smith signed off on their deal no major sport had any plans for blood testing, though baseball has been randomly testing the blood of minor leaguers for the last year or so. Now the NFL will have it by opening day — or at least Goodell hopes. There are some details still to be cleared up, namely concerns by players about how the tests will be conducted, how many there will be and how appeals will work. Just how they are settled will determine whether blood testing will be an effective deterrent or just a public relations gimmick.

Port Angeles’ Janson Pederson sticks out his tongue as he delivers a pitch while teammate Taylor Milsap looks on in the Port Angeles 12-year-old team’s first game Saturday at the 14th annual Dick Brown Memorial Baseball Tournament at the Lincoln Park fields. The two-day tourney attracted 19 teams — four from Port Angeles — to compete in three age divisions. It ends today with winner bracket games at 4 p.m.

Less resistance Still, the fact that athletes in the nation’s most popular sport agreed to have blood taken from their arm by a needle — there is no urine test for HGH — shows how far the pendulum in drug testing has swung in organized sports. Those whose mission is to rid sports of performance-enhancing drugs aren’t exactly dancing in the streets over the agreement. They still see lots of possible holes drug cheats can run right through. For now, though, they’ll take it. “To put in a test is certainly a win for clean athletes,’’ said Travis Tygart, executive director of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency. “How big a win will be the next question once details of how it will be implemented are released.’’ Goodell and Smith gave little indication what those details would be when they met Friday in Canton, Ohio, to sign the 300-page collective bargaining agreement that will be in place over the next decade. But it was notable that Smith later told the league-owned NFL Network that blood testing for HGH was necessary for the integrity of the game. Turn

The size, the strength — you got some guys that are big and can run. “I think when you look at that defensive backfield right now, there’s a lot of young guys out there that look fast and big and strong and tough.”

Former Calgary Stampeder Brandon Browner is ready to return to the NFL and give the Seattle Seahawks a large presence in the secondary.
Back and better CFL standout gets shot with Hawks The Associated Press
RENTON — Brandon Browner is not a typical NFL cornerback. The 6-foot-4, 221-pound Browner towers over the Seattle Seahawks’ secondary. He looks out of place, like a wiry linebacker. But the Seahawks are hoping he can bring a physical presence to the edge of their defense. “The only guy I can ever think of that was this big was Mel Blount a million years ago,” coach Pete Carroll said Friday. “He just is so tall. “Most people would say he can’t play being that tall, but he’s doing it.” Carroll had the chance to recruit Browner when he was the head coach at Southern California. Browner was a standout player at Sylmar High School, just north of Los Angeles. But Carroll decided to pass.
Browner went on to star for Oregon State and was an undrafted free agent when he signed with Denver in 2005. The Broncos decided to move him to safety. The transition was a difficult one for Browner, who broke his arm in a preseason game against San Francisco and was placed on injured reserve. He eventually was released and signed with the Canadian Football League’s Calgary Stampeders. Browner made the CFL All-Star team each of the past three seasons. “I’ve matured,” Browner said. “When I came out I was an underclassman. I was only 20 years old. I’m 27 now, so a lot of things have changed over the years. “I did well up there in the CFL and it all worked out the way it was supposed to. I’m back where I want to be.” Carroll didn’t pass up another opportunity to chase Browner.
“I had lost track of him — that he was playing in Canada for a few years and he was all-Canada or whatever and made the All-Star team [three] years in a row. I said let’s bring him in,” Carroll said. “Let’s see what we’ve got. “I always knew that he was very effective at the line of scrimmage.”
Opportunity knocks With second-year cornerback Walter Thurmond missing time with an ankle sprain, Browner has been thrown in with the firstteam defense opposite cornerback Marcus Trufant. He’s been matched up against the Seahawks’ larger wide receivers, Mike Williams and Sidney Rice, during workouts. “He kind of has the physical attributes we’re looking for, good speed, good size, good strength,” defensive backs coach Kris Richard said. “Put it all together with a little bit of technique and a lot of wins should come out of that. “He’s doing a fantastic job thus far.”
Seattle ranked 27th against the pass last season. Larger receivers proved to be a really difficult matchup. Dwayne Bowe had 13 catches for 170 yards and three touchdowns in a 42-24 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Hakeem Nicks had six catches for 128 yards and a touchdown for the New York Giants. With Thurmond’s injury, the coaching staff is getting an extended chance to evaluate Browner with the hope he could be the piece to help keep opposing receivers in check. “He’s come out here and he’s competed like crazy,” Carroll said. “He’s had some very good days, one after another. “He’s a four-year professional veteran if you look at it. He’s played a ton of football games and he just keeps growing and he fits in. “I’m looking for him to challenge for some play time. “He looks like he can do that. We’re so fortunate that we hit that so we’ll see how it goes.”

But on for preseason playing he fits the Seahawks’ new prototype, and that’s why time. According to Carroll, Carroll seems excited about making the grade in the his potential. “I’m really happy with defensive backs rotation has as much or more to do his progress so far. He’s with taking advantage of done a lot of really good pure physical gifts — size, things,” Carroll said.
“He’s a very, very competitive kid, very bright and he gives you the feeling that he might be able to contribute. “It looks like a terrific pick for us.” The primary responsibility for developing these young players goes to defensive backs coach Kris Richard, who played for Carroll at USC and was selected in the third round of the 2002 draft by Seattle. When his NFL career ended, he went back to USC as a graduate assistant coach, and followed Carroll to Seattle in 2010. “We love their physical attributes,” Richard said of his young charges. “We want to allow them to let their physical nature take over in certain situations. “We want our cornerbacks to be up in the faces of the receivers, and challenge them. “They understand that, and that’s why they come here [as undrafted free agents].
“And when we draft them, and he have the opportunity to talk to them before, that’s that we let them know.” In the short term, Trufant and Jennings are important because they bring experience — they’re “good in the meeting room,” as coaches like to say. And while all young players are affected by the compressed preseason time frame brought about by the lockout, Richard makes it very clear that no excuses will be tolerated. If you want more playing time, you’d better stand out to earn it. The Seahawks have put their money on other positions and left the defensive backfield to tenuous experience and unproven athletic talent. The return on that investment may be the difference between a playoff berth and a long offseason in which the choice to avoid those pricey free agents is questioned over and over again.

OLYMPIA — Budget shortfalls continue to affect hunters and fishers in Washington. Starting Sept. 1, the base cost for most state hunting and fishing licenses will increase. This is the first general recreational license fee increase in more than a decade. Coming two months after the institution of the Discover Pass — a new vehicle access pass required at most state lands — the increase was approved by the 2011 Legislature in May. It was done to help meet rising costs and shortfalls in revenue for managing hunting, fishing and the fish and wildlife populations that are the focus of those activities. Not all license fees will increase. Some will decline, including those for youth, seniors and persons with disabilities. New license fees are available on the state Department of Fish and Wildlife’s website at http:// wdfw.wa.gov/licensing/ license_fees.html. “The new fees are critically important in maintaining fishing and hunting opportunity and make it possible for the department to fulfill its dual mission of conserving species while providing sustainable fishing, hunting and outdoor
Outdoors recreation across the state,” Fish and Wildlife Director Phil Anderson said in a news release. “The fees reflect the cost of managing specific fisheries and hunts, and are competitive with fees charged in neighboring states. “At the same time, we made an effort to encourage broad participation through youth and senior discounts.” The increases are expected to generate about $8 million annually for activities that support hunting and recreational fishing, according to Fish and Wildlife. Recreational license and permit revenue is used to manage fisheries and hunting seasons, produce trout and steelhead for recreational fisheries, enforce regulations, monitor fish and game populations and help maintain state wildlife lands. Revenues from the license fee increase will replace a temporary 10 percent license sale surcharge that expired in June, and will fill a projected deficit in the account that funds fishing and hunting activities. “Fishing and hunting contribute more than $1.4 billion a year to the state’s economy, benefitting local communities, small business owners and the people they employ,” Anderson said. “Maintaining fishing and hunting opportunity is vital to Washington’s economy and quality of life.”

KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Mauro Rosales and Lamar Neagle scored less than two minutes apart at the close of the second half, giving Seattle Sounders a 2-1 win Saturday night and snapping Sporting Kansas City’s 14-match unbeaten streak. Kansas City (7-7-9) lost its first game since May 21 — ending a 6-0-8 stretch.
Rosales tied the game at 1 in the 90th minute for Seattle (11-5-8), and Neagle’s game-winner in the second minute of stoppage time came on a loose-ball scramble in the area. Sporting forward Omar Bravo was issued a straight red card — his second of the year and Kansas City’s club-record seventh of the year — for a hard challenge on Pat Noonan in the 58th minute.

“It was crazy,” Stevens said. “We just couldn’t get anything going until the bottom of the seventh.” Lauren Curtis earned the win on the mound. The right-hander gave up eight runs in seven innings of work, and was also hurt by North Olympic’s four errors in the field. “We can play a lot better than we played today as a team,” Steven said. “It’s an ugly win, but we’ll take it.” North Olympic struggled to make things happen in its 2-0 loss to Lodi earlier in the day.
Sarah Steinman struck out seven Lodi batters and allowed just two runs in six innings to keep North Olympic in it. But Lodi hurler Liz Trotter was equally as sharp, keeping North Olympic hitters off balance all afternoon and allowing only one hit to reach the outfield on the fly. Both North Olympic base hits were sharply hit ground balls by Steinman and Black Crow. Neither girl advanced beyond second base. “In the whole game I think there was only three balls that went out of the

Fruit-eating waxwing a handsome bird CEDAR WAXWINGS BELONG to the family “Bombycilladae.” This combination of Greek and Latin words translates as “silky-tailed.” Almost the entire name of this elegantly attired bird describes its appearance. Waxwing refers to the tips of its wings. They are red and look as if they have been dipped in sealing wax. A waxwing also has a yellow band on its tail and sports a sleek-looking crest that can be depressed or flattened. Its black mask resembles that worn by the Lone Ranger. August has long been the month when we expect to see (and hear) cedar waxwings in the yard as well as other favorite Northwest destinations. They can show up at any time, and this year, we were hearing their whispering calls in June and July. When it comes to birds, they have the softest of voices. The sound has been described as a high, thin lisp or a slightly trilled “zeee.” It’s sounds like a ringing whisper to me — if you can imagine such a sound. Waxwings usually call from the treetops or fruitladen thickets, and it takes time for the sound to pierce your thoughts and alert you to their presence. These are fruit-eating birds, but they are primarily insect eaters and will engage in some serious fly-
BIRD WATCH catching when Carson conditions are right. During the late summer months, we’ve watched them catching flies over the Hoh River. As the flying red ants emerge about this time, our hope is that the waxwings are shrinking the ant population. This action can be expected on other large rivers and river bars throughout the state, especially where the riverbanks are lined with trees. Once the berries on the shrubs and trees begin to ripen, that soft whispering chatter will be heard more and more. Mountain ash berries are a favorite. So are red dogwood buttons, pyracantha berries, the native white hawthorn, wild blackberries and both domestic and wild cherries. Like robins, waxwings gorge themselves on the fruit. It’s impressive when you see them swallow some of these berries whole. When the fruit is overripe and beginning to ferment, these mild-mannered birds can overindulge and become inebriated. Waxwings don’t get drunk. At this time of the year
A cedar waxwing elegantly perches near a waterfall. when the waxwings arrive in our yards and other outdoor haunts, we can expect to see lots of youngsters traveling in these flocks. They are grayish-brown in color and appear to be more slender than the adults. There is a generous amount of faint streaking over their breasts and backs. Waxwings travel in large flocks, especially after the young are off the nest.

Give bride choice if she dislikes beard DEAR ABBY: I am a 40-year-old man with a baby face. It makes me appear much younger than I am — so much so that I have been carded when buying alcohol or lottery tickets. People also seem to relate to me based on the age they perceive me to be. Four months ago, I grew a beard, which makes me look more my age. I’m an actor, and in the past, audiences had difficulty accepting me in certain roles because of my youthful appearance. My beard solved that problem. My sister-in-law is getting married this summer and insists I shave my beard for the ceremony and wedding photos. I keep it well-groomed,

the time to reach out and volunteer. There’s a little-known program in every state that was mandated by a 1978 amendment to the “Older Americans Act.” It’s the Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program. Its goal is to help ensure that long-term care facility residents live harmoniously and with dignity, feeling free to voice complaints or concerns without reprisal. There’s a need nationwide for volunteers to make this program work. The ultimate goal is to have one volunteer in each nursing home. After training is completed, volunteers spend eight to 16 hours a month visiting their assigned nursing homes.
They talk with the residents and observe conditions. If there’s a complaint, they take it to their regional ombudsman for resolution. Once residents get to know and trust you, they will share wonderful life stories. Some of them have no one to talk to, no visitors or family. A volunteer ombudsman is the voice for those who have none and helps to make each community a better place to live for all its residents. The nursing homes like to have volunteer ombudsmen visit their facilities because they want to provide the best care possible for their residents. Jill in Van Buren, Ark.
Dear Jill: Forgive me if this seems cynical, but some do and some don’t — which is exactly why it’s so important that there are trained observers willing to regularly visit nursing home patients to ensure they are properly cared for. Readers, this is important work. If you are interested in volunteering, contact your local social services agency, Department of Aging or search online for the word “ombudsman” and the state in which you reside.

Sedums, herbs good at warding off deer FINALLY, AUGUST IS beginning to look like our typical, gorgeous summer climate. Your now trimmed-down flowers (for those of you with nerves of steel) along with that monthold vegetable garden (I know you all took my advice and planted) are really going to soak up the sun. And speaking of that elusive sunshine, make sure you adjust your watering habits; we aren’t accustomed to numerous warm and sunshine-filled days, and the ground beneath your flowers will be getting drier than you may suspect or have gotten used to. When the ground gets very dry, arid soil does not soak up water very well. In fact, I just missed two days of watering my wife’s flowers at the clinic, and it took me more than double the normal time in order to soak the soil to at least
A GROWING CONCERN 4-6 inches in depth. May So please, now that all is well in the garden, take care of your plants by watering them properly in what should be our typically beautiful August — dry, hot and sunny weather. And since we are mentioning elusive things, how about deerresistant plants? A question came into the mailbox that had the No. 1 question I get everywhere I speak or travel. Q: Thank you for your interesting column on sedum and herbs.
How interested are deer in these plants? Thanks, Laurel, Port Townsend A. Oh, Laurel, you have asked the age-old question: What plants do deer eat? We all know that when we have purchased those tagged deer-resistant plants, the deer have chewed them up. I have a theory that is welltested in my work here, on the East Coast, the heartland of America and Europe: Deer will eat your favorite plant. First you really like your favorite plant, adore it, treat it right. You give it great soil, water and fertilizer, then prune it well, for after all, it is your favorite plant. Then you give it a great location, easy to see, a really standout spot perfect for your favorite plant. When deer pass by your yard, they are always looking to see
what you brought them home from the nursery. And they will always walk over to inspect this new morsel, by which I mean your new plant. And here is the trick: They will always take a bite, each and every deer that sees this new treat. Regardless of whether or not they will like it, each and every deer will take a bite. But this means that even plants that are deer-resistant will be chomped on by each and every deer, so they may never learn it is foul-tasting. So just because a plant is pulled out of the freshly planted bed or pot and chewed almost to nothing does not mean deer like it. It only means that all the deer that will ever come on to your property must learn that they don’t like it. And deer are stupid, unable to communicate to their new off-
spring how bad your favorite plant tastes, so each and every newborn must take a bite for themselves. However, Laurel, the great news is sedums and almost all herbs, especially the aforementioned Mediterranean herbs, are definitely detested by deer. They aren’t desired at all, except for the first bite, and Laurel and everyone, if you have planted five different types of sedum, each and every deer must take a bite out of all five. This is why sedums and herbs are even more wonderful because the deer think they aren’t.

Upon his retirement in 2003, the board of curators approved naming the campus observatory the Richard D. Schwartz Observatory in honor of his distinctive service to the University of MissouriSt. Louis. Just as important as Dick’s service to promote public interest in astronomy was his effort to make the campus observatory a research facility.

Award for Excellence in Research and Creativity for his distinguished research record. Dick retired in 2003 after 28 years at UMSL. However, he kept active in research, using the Galaxy View Observatory, which he constructed adjacent to his home in Sequim. Characteristic of his broad scientific interests, this year, the Geological Society of America Today will publish Dick’s commentary on the scientific basis of anthropogenic global warming. He brought a deep compassion to local activities to raise awareness of climate change, offering thoughtful comments in local newspapers that reflected his unique combination of degrees in astrophysics and divinity. Dick is survived by his wife of 23 years, Eleanor McIntyre; six stepchildren; 14 grandchildren; two brothers; two nieces; and their families. Contributions in his memory can be made to the Richard D. Schwartz Scholarship at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. A memorial service celebrating Dick’s life will be held on Sunday, August 21, at 3 p.m. at the Sequim Senior Center. Donations for the Sequim Food Bank are preferred to flowers.
SEQUIM — The Museum & Arts Center in the Sequim-Dungeness Valley is heading back to school in August by hosting a special open house and booksigning event at the Dungeness Schoolhouse. The public is invited to meet local schools historian and a u t h o r I r e n e Wyman and tour the his- Wyman t o r i c a l schoolhouse, located at 2781 Towne Road, from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 14. Wyman will also sign copies of her 2010 book, Clallam County Schools, East to West, which chronicles the history of North Olympic Peninsula schools from Blyn to Neah Bay and will be available for purchase at the event. Free raffle tickets to win an autographed copy of Wyman’s book will be given out during the event, and
light refreshments, including cookies and lemonade, will be served. Attendees can also have their photographs taken by MAC photographer-in-residence Robert Cooper in the historical classroom exhibit, located on the first floor of the schoolhouse.
Richard D. Schwartz, professor emeritus of astronomy, died at his home in Sequim after a nearly three-year battle against pancreatic cancer. Richard was born in Pretty Prairie, Kansas. He was active in sports and band and graduated in 1959. After completing a Bachelor of Science at Kansas State University and a master’s degree in divinity at Union Theological Seminary in New York, he further studied astrophysics, receiving his doctorate from the University of Washington in 1973. When Dick arrived at the University of MissouriSt. Louis in 1975, he was the only astronomer in the Department of Physics. He built the astronomy program and initiated the Bachelor of Science in physics with an astrophysics option that the majority of physics majors choose. Dick was a wonderful teacher and provided outstanding leadership to the campus. He designed and provided oversight on the construction of the campus observatory that was completed in 1981. Since that time, the observatory has served as
scientific research. From 1991-2003, he managed the campus program for the NASA/Missouri Space Grant Consortium and mentored more than 30 research students in projects at the observatory. Some of the results have been published in astronomical journals. Many of those students went on to graduate school, and several have achieved tenure and distinction at major universities. In addition to Dick’s service to the University of Missouri-St. Louis, he compiled a distinguished record of research that gave him an international reputation as an astrophysicist. During his career, Dick pioneered a new research area studying the energetic mass loss in young stars, leading to hundreds of astronomers and physicists working in this area worldwide. He used a variety of unique telescopes to conduct his research, including the Hubble Space Telescope. There have been more than 2,000 citations to his 80 scientific papers. From 1979-1998, he had continuous funding from NASA and the National Science Foundation, and in 1999, he received the Chancellor’s

The Water Limousine, a 26-foot vessel affectionately named Livin’ the Dream, gives passengers their own personal cruise ship. The 5-year-old business offers the only private water service on the North Olympic Peninsula. “It’s a cozy boat,” says Capt. Charles Martin. “It’s not at all like getting on a whale watching boat with 80 other people.” The boat’s classy, intimate quarters can accommodate up to six people (and pets are welcome too). While the vessel and its captain are all about ensuring passenger comfort —there’s even a queen-sized bed and bathroom on board — the itinerary is left up to you. Whether it’s a day of wildlife viewing and photographing or a romantic evening, Livin’ the Dream is at your service. Passengers can visit the Protection Island National Wildlife Refuge, the San Juan Islands or any other Pacific Northwest destination of their choice. They have also just announced landing passengers at the Dungeness Spit for tours of the lighthouse. Many people simply can’t make the
5-mile hike to see the lighthouse so arrangements have been made to accommodate that very popular destination. Trips typically leave from the John Wayne Marina in Sequim, but Capt. Martin says he can pick passengers up anywhere, whether it be Port Angeles or Seattle. “That’s why we call it ‘The Water Limousine,’” he says. “You just tell me where and when, and I’ll be there.” Livin’ the Dream is a powered catamaran which offer a smoother ride when the water gets a bit rough. The vessel is often chartered for transportation to unique destinations, day trips on the water and even memorial services where a loved one’s ashes can be spread at sea. Two-hour trips leaving from John Wayne Marina start at $195 and run up to $475 a day for up to six passengers. The Water Limousine can also arrange accommodations for passengers interested in overnight trips. The Water Limousine sails yearround and is available for service seven days a week. Capt.

PORT TOWNSEND — The state Department of Employment Security’s regional labor market economist will speak to this week’s Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce luncheon on Monday. Elizabeth Scott, the state labor economist serving Jefferson, Clallam and Kitsap counties, is expected to discuss Jefferson County’s labor outlook Jefferson County’s unemployment rate went from 9.4 percent to 9.8 percent in June, the latest figures available. The rate climbed even though the county added 100 service-providing jobs and gained 20 government jobs. “The bottom line is we’re not producing jobs fast enough,” Scott told the Peninsula Daily News when the figures were announced. Open to the public, Monday’s luncheon of the Jefferson County chamber, combining former chamber organizations in Port Townsend, Port Ludlow and the Tri-Area, begins at noon at the Port Townsend Elks Lodge, 555 Otto St.

Memorable way to spend a birthday IN THE LATE 1700s, Alexander Hamilton, the first secretary of the Treasury, pressed the case to Congress of the need for a fleet of boats to patrol the Eastern Seaboard to stem the tide of contraband that was flowing into the country. On Aug. 4, 1790, George Washington signed legislation that created the Revenue Cutter Service, the forerunner of today’s U.S. Coast Guard. What began as a fleet of 10 cutters and 100 people has evolved through the years into a worldwide force that encompasses hundreds of surface vessels, aircraft and field offices that are staffed by nearly 42,000 men and women. Last week — on Thursday morning, the 221st anniversary of the Revenue Cutter Service’s founding — a MH-65 Dolphin helicopter from the Port Angeles Coast Guard station on Ediz Hook made an unscheduled landing in a field between the old Port Angeles Speedway race track and Armstrong Marine, the aluminum boat fabricator on U.S. Highway 101 midway between Port Angeles and Sequim.
ON THE WATERFRONT Joe Beck of Sellars Armstrong Marine arrived at work at about 8:30 a.m. and learned from fellow coworkers that the helicopter first attempted to land in a field at Olympic Christian School at Highway 101 and O’Brien Road, but apparently the copter was kicking up too much dust for the pilot’s liking, so the crew opted for the race track site. Lt. Keidi Niemann, a Coast Guard public affairs officer, told me that a warning light aboard the copter had gone off, indicating the possibility of metal filings in the oil of the tail rotor’s gearbox. Niemann said protocol for this type of warning light dictates that the aircraft be landed at the first opportunity.

Aircraft mechanics were sent out from the air station to make the necessary repairs. By about 2 p.m., the rotor system was back up and running and, according to Niemann, the helicopter was able to take off to keep a prior commitment at the Sequim Grange. Quite a birthday.

Q&A: What U.S. credit downgrade means The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — The real danger from the downgrade of U.S. government debt by Standard & Poor’s isn’t higher interest rates. It’s the hit to the nation’s fragile economic psyche and rattled financial markets. S&P’s decision to strip the U.S. of its sterling AAA credit rating for the first time and move it down one notch, to AA+, deals a blow to the confidence of consumers and businesses at a dangerous time, economists say. The agency is “striking at the heart of what makes the global economy tick,” says Chris Rupkey, chief financial economists for the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ. “It isn’t just dollars and cents.” One economist, Paul Dales of Capital Economics, worried Saturday that the downgrade could even trigger another financial crisis. The timing could hardly be worse for the U.S. The economy added 117,000 jobs in July, more than expected. But other economic indicators, including manufacturing, consumer spending and overall growth, are getting weaker. And the markets just came through their most harrowing two weeks since the financial crisis of 2008. The Dow lost about 10 percent of its value on fears of a new recession and Europe’s spiraling financial problems. Here’s a look at the S&P downgrade, and downgrades in general — and what they mean:
S&P officials defend lower U.S. credit rating The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Standard & Poor’s says it downgraded the U.S. government’s credit rating because it believes the U.S. will keep having problems getting its finances under control. S&P officials on Saturday defended their decision to drop the government’s rating to AA+ from the top rating, AAA. The Obama administration called the move a hasty decision based on wrong calculations about the federal budget. It had tried to head off the downgrade before it was announced late Friday. But S&P said it was the months of haggling in Congress over budget cuts that led it to downgrade the U.S. rating. The ratings agency was dissatisfied with the deal lawmakers reached last weekend. And it isn’t confident that the government will do much better in the future, even as the issuer (in this case, the government), since investors demand a higher interest rate if they’re taking a bigger risk.
Q: Does it mean U.S. interest rates will go up? A: The 10-year Treasury note is considered the basis for all other Q: What does a downgrade interest rates, so higher rates on that and other long-term U.S. debt mean? could lead to borrowing costs on A: A downgrade is a warning to buyers of bonds and other debt everything from mortgage loans to credit cards. that the chance that they won’t That would also make it more get their money back has expensive for state and local govincreased, however slightly. ernments, companies and consumIn theory, downgrades should lead to higher borrowing costs for ers to borrow money.
the U.S. budget deficit grows. David Beers, global head of sovereign ratings at S&P, said the agency was concerned about the “degree of uncertainty around the political policy process. The nature of the debate and the difficulty in framing a political consensus ... that was the key consideration.” S&P was looking for $4 trillion in budget cuts over 10 years. The deal that passed Congress on Tuesday would bring $2.1 trillion to $2.4 trillion in cuts over that time. Another concern was that lawmakers and the administration might fail to make those cuts because Democrats and Republicans are divided over how to implement them. Republicans are refusing to raise taxes in any deficit-cutting deal while Democrats are fighting to protect giant entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare. But it’s not clear that investors will sell their Treasury notes in response to S&P’s downgrade, so it may have no effect on rates. Treasury bonds are a foundation of the U.S. financial system, and there are few safer alternatives that are easy to trade. As stocks plunged the last two weeks, price of Treasurys soared because demand was high, even though investors knew there might be a downgrade. Since yields on debt securities fall as prices rise, the yield on the 10-year note dropped from 2.96 percent on July 22 to 2.39 percent on Friday.
The Associated Press
The U.S. Capitol building. S&P so far is the only one of the three largest credit rating agencies to downgrade U.S. debt. Moody’s Investor Service and Fitch Ratings have both issued warnings of possible downgrades but for now have retained their AAA ratings. Ratings agencies assign ratings on bonds and other forms of debt so investors can judge how likely an issuer — like governments, corporations and non-profit groups — will be to pay the debt back. A downgrade could spur a “quick jolt of nervous, knee-jerk selling” of bonds, raising rates in the short term, said Guy LeBas, chief fixed income strategist at Janney Montgomery Scott. But investors are so worried about the economy and need the safety of Treasurys that they could quickly become buyers again. However, some money-market funds could be forced to sell U.S. government debt if they require client money to be invested in only AAA-rated debt. Q: How big is the market for U.S. government bonds?
A: At $9.3 trillion, the U.S. government bond market is massive compared to other countries’. Daily trading of Treasurys runs at $580 billion, far higher than British gilts ($34 billion) or German bunds ($28 billion), according to a recent study by Fitch. “I think no matter what happens, Treasurys are the safe haven,” said Dan Greenhaus, chief global strategist at the brokerage BTIG in New York. “No other market is as large or as liquid.” Treasurys have a solid appeal for the world’s central banks. China’s central bank holds an estimated $1.16 trillion. Japan, the second largest foreign owner, holds $912 billion. Fitch said the status of the U.S. dollar and the size of the Treasury market are the biggest reasons investors won’t abandon Treasurys soon. Q: How many times has the U.S. been downgraded below AAA? A: Never. The U.S. has been rated AAA since 1917 and has only faced the threat of a downgrade once. In 1995, when Bill Clinton was president, a similar default loomed and the credit rating agencies warned of a downgrade. At the time, the country had $4.9 trillion in debt — nearly $10 trillion less than now. Once Congress resolved that debt crisis a year later, the credit agencies removed their warning. Q: How has a downgrade affected other countries? A: In May 1998, S&P knocked Belgium, Italy and Spain from AAA to AA. A week later, their 10-year rates had barely budged. Later, in some cases, rates actually fell. A week after S&P took Ireland’s AAA rating away in March 2009, 10-year rates in that country fell 0.18 percentage points.

NEW YORK — Wells Fargo & Co. on Friday said it has agreed to pay $590 million to settle a classaction lawsuit filed by investors in Wachovia securities. The settlement would end a suit filed in 2008 in federal court in Manhattan, N.Y., charging that Wachovia misled investors in its bonds and preferred securities by understating losses associated with risky mortgages. Wells Fargo bought Wachovia that year at the height of the financial crisis.

Push for gay marriage in Washington grows Jefferson a leader in state

grew by 37 percent over the decade, slower than the state as a whole. n Nearly one-quarter of same-sex couples lead a household with children. n Garfield County in southeastern Washington, the least populous county in the state with 2,266 people, had the lowest number of households led by a samesex couple — with one. Activists and lawmakers are currently strategizing how and when to best push the issue. Democratic state Sen. Ed Murray, who has consistently filed bills to approve gay marriages since 1997, said the Senate does not have the votes right now to get it approved in 2012. He hopes that will change and isn’t ruling out success in the coming session of the Legislature. Murray, who has been with his partner for 20 years as of this coming week, also said supporters need to ensure that the law will stand, even if it faces a referendum challenge. He doesn’t believe it would have survived four years ago, when the domestic partnerships law passed, but he does think things are changing. “Personally, it gets old. Politically, I think we’re on the right road,” Murray said. “This isn’t going to take many years. It’s going to take a few years.”
Heather Purser, a Suquamish tribal member who worked to change the tribe’s marriage ordinance to include same-sex couples, stands near a memorial for Chief Seattle on the tribe’s reservation in Kitsap County. The change in tribal law came after a four-year campaign by Purser, 28, to get the tribe to adopt a law recognizing gay marriage, which the Tribal Council did last Monday. Both sides of the gay marriage debate claim that public opinion is on their side. Gary Randall, president of the Bellevue-based Faith and Freedom Network, said he doesn’t think there’s a race toward gay marriage like supporters of the effort would like people to believe. He also thinks that people who want to keep marriage between one man and one woman will come off the sidelines to voice their opinions.
Biblical issues Randall said groups are also having discussions about the best way to educate the public about their arguments — namely that the Bible doesn’t condone gay marriage and that redefining marriage could eventually lead to condoned polygamy. “I don’t think they’re ready to approve gay marriage,” Randall said.

since its 2007 formation. Perry replaces the founder of KSQM, Rick Perry (no relation), who recently stepped down as president. In his resignation letter, Rick Perry cited the organization’s need for new, strong leadership to continue the station’s growth. “We are all exceedingly fortunate to have a man with a devotion to the health and welfare of our community, such as our founder, Rick Perry,” said Jeff Bankston, KSQM general manager. “Seeing the absolute need for local radio and an emergency broadcaster in our area, Rick had the vision, skills, leadership, commitment and guts to get the job done and build a first class radio station.”
and a very special thank you to everyone who’s been close to me during the past 3 years while I’ve endured an incredible amount of personal headaches & hardships unlike anything I’ve ever had to cope with.
tle-based advocacy group Equal Rights Washington, said gay marriage proponents need to focus on increasing social acceptance. That means educating people about the marriage benefits that aren’t extended to domestic partners, such as tax benefits or health insurance coverage. He also wants to demonstrate to the public that it’s a matter of dignity for couples who want the state to recognize their relationships equally. Smith-Mosel carries around a folder of documents detailing her family’s relationships, worried that during a medical crisis or some other problem they will face questions and lack the same protections as officially recognized spouses. “Our kids need to feel that our family isn’t just second-class,” Smith-Mosel said. “We’re a married couple, and we want to be treated as such. We deserve to be treated as such.”

‘Making your Mark’ PORT ANGELES — Clallam County Planning Manager Steve Gray has won the Department of Community Development’s Employee of the Quarter award, department Director Sheila Roark Miller announced. Gray was recognized in a staff meeting “for his selflessness, dedication and commitment to serving the citizens of Clallam County,” Miller said. He was given a choice parking spot outside the county courthouse called the “Place to Park for Making your Mark” to use for the remainder of this quarter. Gray was selected by a team of non-management department employees. The team picks a winner every quarter. Miller said Gray was noted for his willingness to adapt under stress of reorganization and numerous day and evening meetings, including the Shoreline Master Program update. “Not only is he an exemplary example of a dedicated public servant, he is also a great leader,” Miller said. “Mr. Gray coached his team of girls, North Olympic 14U Babe Ruth to a Regional win last month. He’s a winner in our book, too.”

MOUNTAIN VIEW HEARING
WaMu case closed THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT says it has closed its investigation into the collapse of Washington Mutual without any criminal charges filed. In September 2008, the federal government seized Washington Mutual’s flagship bank, based in Seattle, and sold its assets to JPMorgan Chase & Co. for $1.9 billion. It was the biggest bank failure in U.S. history. The Justice Department, the FBI and the Securities and Exchange Commission opened investigations into WaMu’s collapse shortly after, in October 2008. The U.S. attorney’s office for the western district of Washington, which includes Seattle, on Friday evening issued a statement saying that after an “extensive investigation that included hundreds of interviews and the review of millions of documents,” there were no grounds for criminal charges.

Another bank in state shut by regulators Columbia assumes Whitman Peninsula Daily News news services
COLFAX — Columbia Banking System in Tacoma on Friday bought all of the deposits and some assets of the Bank of Whitman, making the Eastern Washington bank the third in the state to fail this year. Federal regulators also shut on Friday a small bank in Illinois, lifting to 63 the number of U.S. bank failures this year. The pace of closures has slowed, as the economy has stabilized and banks work their way through the bad debt accumulated in the Great Recession. By Aug. 6 last year, regulators had shuttered 109 banks. “Large loan losses made it impossible for Bank of Whitman to continue,” said Richard Riccobono of the state Department of Financial Institutions. “Bank management was unable to raise sufficient capital to remain viable. “It hurts to lose an institution like the Bank of Whitman because they extended services to our state’s smaller communities.”
Has Peninsula branches
OMC accredited by radiology association THE AMERICAN COLLEGE of Radiology has awarded a threeyear term of accreditation in computed tomography to Olympic Medical Center. The accreditation award extends to the CT units in both Sequim and Port Angeles. “A large amount of hard work by our skilled technologists, particu-
larly from our lead CT Technologist Rod Horstman, has gone into gaining this distinction with our diagnostic CT program — we’ve also had the administrative support needed to make this accreditation a reality,” said Deby King, director of diagnostic imaging. The ACR Gold Seal of Accreditation is awarded only to facilities
meeting the ACR’s Practice Guidelines and Technical Standards after a peer-review evaluation by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. Olympic Medical Center is also accredited through the ACR for its hospital-based nuclear medicine and all its digital mammography sites. Peninsula Daily News

$134.8 million cost The bank couldn’t meet either requirement. The failure will cost the federal government $134.8 million, the FDIC said. The bank was started by a group of Whitman County farmers and businessmen in 1977 in Colfax. Columbia will reopen eight of the 20 branches of Bank of Whitman on Monday. The eight branches are in Clarkston, Colfax, Othello, Pullman, Ritzville, two in Spokane, and in Walla Walla. All depositors of Bank of Whitman will automatically become depositors of Columbia State Bank. Deposits will continue to be insured by the FDIC Columbia Bank bought out the failing American Marine Bank chain, including its four branches on the North Olympic Peninsula, in January 2010. In May, Columbia Bank acquired the three-branch Summit Bank in Skagit County and First Heritage Bank, which operated five branches in Snohomish County. As of June 30, Columbia Bank has total assets of $5.43 billion and total deposits of $3.58 billion.

back on and take lovers of her own, no? Women who think they have a great marriage are only fooling themselves. I counsel women to maintain their careers if they’re going to be married because their man will most likely cheat no matter how solid they think their relationship is. And the things their husband will say about them while they’re in bed with other women — like me — would break their hearts. On a side note, to the women out there swearing your men are faithful — it’s so cute you think so! So, women, learn to play the game and keep your dignity and your bank accounts intact. No woman should give up everything for a marriage and family. And believe me, once you get past the judgmental types and learn not to let the holier-than-thou’s bother you, you’ll love all the hot sex you’re having with someone else’s husband. And the beautiful thing is, she’ll be doing the nasty things like cooking and cleaning for him while you get to go on great vacations and get fabulous jewelry, and then you get to send him home! It’s truly a great arrangement. Just do it! Cheryl Lavin compiles Tales from the Front at her home office in Arizona, where she writes a blog at www.talesfromthefront. com.

Railroad Ave. As for Heatherton, “She just took the ball and ran with it,” Shenar added. Heatherton is also back at work in Sequim, back at the profession she loves: nursing at Assured Hospice. The agency supports her art exhibition as a community education project — part of her work as patient care representative and volunteer coordinator — though it’s “not normally part of the job description.”

And that makes it real. Heatherton knows plenty about reaching out. As a nurse for the past 34 years, she has worked in many settings, from hospitals to helicopters, where she flew with patients airlifted from the Tahoe National Forest in California.
As a hospice nurse who cares for terminally ill patients and their families, Heatherton believes she has come to one of the most honorable types of health care that exists. She likes to say that she works for “an escort service,” escorting the dying across the bridge.
Hospice workers — such as the 15 staffers and 12 volunteers at Assured Hospice — also seek to bring relief to the living. They offer respite care; they bring meals to help spouses who are too exhausted to cook. TURN

Heatherton: Husband, friends help recovery CONTINUED FROM 3 And they simply stay beside the ones who are grieving. Heatherton herself experienced that kind of devotion as she was recovering from her surgeries last fall. Her friends fed her, literally and spiritually, and her husband was her “faithful nurse.” He was there when she stepped in front of a mirror for the first time after her double mastectomy. Heatherton had had a voluptuous figure — and she didn’t think she could bear to look at the scars left by the surgery. Thomas, seeing her pain, laid his head gently on her chest. He said, “This is the closest I have ever been to
Art show seeks entries “EMBRACING LIFE THROUGH Art: The Journey Back” is open to textiles, paintings, sculpture, collage, pen and ink, carvings, jewelry and just about everything else. Applications are due by Aug. 25, and works must be delivered to the Landing Art Gallery between Sept. 21 and 24. The show will be on display during the month of October. For details, phone Landing Art Gallery manager Sharon Shenar at 360582-5259 or Sky Heatherton at your heart.” Then there’s her friend Laraine Gau, who became like a sister after she heard of Heatherton’s illness. When Heatherton was too weak to cook, Gau “made
up pots of stew, and just ‘happened to be in the neighborhood.’ “She didn’t ask ‘Can I do anything for you?’” Heatherton recalls. Instead, “she saw a need, and she filled it.”
II’s Battle of the Bulge just four days after Heatherton was born. Her mother later married her father’s best friend, Charles Duggie, a theologian who taught his stepdaughter to appreciate differences in religious beliefs.

Peninsula Woman
PERMANENT COSMETIC MAKE-UP
Heatherton and Gau became fast friends when Heatherton moved the Peninsula nearly three years ago. She and Thomas rented a house Gau owns until they found their own place between Port Angeles and Sequim. Coming to the Olympic Peninsula was “a huge life change,” Heatherton says. She grew up in San Diego and lived in cities all over California before the move north. She was raised by her mother and stepfather, after her father, a medic, was killed in World War
Rites of death Heatherton is now writing a book for hospice workers on Olympic Peninsula Native American tribes’ rites of death and dying. She’s interviewing elders in the Hoh, Elwha, Quileute, Jamestown S’Klallam, Lower Elwha Klallam, Makah and other tribes, to learn about their traditions around death and grieving process, with the intention of helping hospice workers complement them. Each tribe has developed its own distinct
beliefs and practices, she says. As a nurse and as an artist, Heatherton finds inspiration — and fresh energy — in her environment. She still considers herself new to the North Olympic Peninsula, and she’s still awestruck. “I have the ocean, the strait, the trees, the eagles — I have everything,” she says. “Sequim I consider my home base; Port Townsend is my backyard and Port Angeles is my front yard.” Heatherton also finds a sweet camaraderie among the people in Assured Hospice’s Sequim office. When there is a difficult passing, when a patient has suffered far too much, she and her colleagues get together and simply “vent.” They also take “minute vacations,” stepping outside to look up at the Olympic Mountains. She touts the volunteers, too, devoted workers such as John Glover, who cooks meals for his patients’ families. Through training and experiences, Heatherton adds, she’s watched these unpaid workers “blossom into volunteers who are absolutely incredible.” Hospice care is not for the faint of heart, of course. Sometimes there are longstanding family conflicts, and sometimes, a nurse or a volunteer can help make peace. For the husbands, wives,
sisters and brothers of the one who is dying, hospice workers provide respite care, so a spouse can slip out for a cup of coffee with friends. So a relative can write in a journal about the swirling emotions that can come with an impending loss. “You have to take care of the living,” Heatherton says, adding that she tries to “pull things together . . . to give people peace of mind.” Heatherton is herself finding a new kind of peace, one that feels just like joy. She’s still on a regimen of medication, and is not yet entirely free of malignant cells — but Heatherton insists on gratitude. “You can’t live on whatifs. You’ve got to be in the now,” she says. “Death is there, facing us all.” Having suffered enough from her mastectomies, Heatherton chose not to have reconstructive surgery. Nowadays, though, she feels quite pretty, and loves to dress well, wear a flashy necklace, and enter a meeting or a social gathering with “head up, shoulders back,” showing people just how good life can be after cancer. “I am thrilled with life,” she says. “I’m enjoying this time . . . I’m old enough to flirt; I’m old enough to enjoy just being a woman.”

I donâ€™t think you can do that one right now, but we love going in the hot water up there. Itâ€™s so beautiful in nature.â€?
