PORT ANGELES â€” The Clallam County Health Department wants to know exactly how dangerous it is to eat fish and shellfish from Port Angeles Harbor after a study found several contaminants in excess of screening levels. The long-delayed $1.5 million report, conducted by the state Department of Ecology and released last week, found 22 of its 172 sediment samples exceeding
Cancer risk conclusion The agency concluded that the cancer risk exceeded 1 in 100,000 for both subsistence and recreation fishermen due to high levels of arsenic and PCB in the tissue. The report doesnâ€™t say how much has to be consumed for the risk to be met. Dr. Tom Locke, health officer for Clallam and Jefferson counties, said he wants more information on the health risks of eating

shellfish and fish from the harbor, including data on how much people have to consume to be at risk. Locke said he has requested that the state Departmwent of Health conduct its own study, which he expects to occur sometime this year, to determine whether new closures or advisories should be put into effect. â€œIn order to really make a good determination, we need another level of analysis,â€? he said. The harbor already is closed to
clamming, and an advisory has been in place since 2007 for harvesting crabs. â€œMy first impression is, yes, the crab advisory should continue,â€? Locke said. â€œThe question now is should it be extended to fish.â€? Ecologyâ€™s report, initially expected to have been completed in late 2009, is part of the stateâ€™s larger effort to clean up Puget Sound. Rebecca Lawson, regional
manager for Ecologyâ€™s toxics cleanup program, said the data werenâ€™t too surprising for an industrial harbor. The variety of pollutants shown in the study points to multiple polluters as sources, she said. But Lawson said itâ€™s too early to say who is to blame, though mill and log storage activities are all candidates.

SEQUIM â€” Authorities have seized 16 neglected horses, including a foal, from a mother and daughter who said they had rescued them. The Clallam County Sheriffâ€™s Office said the horses were facing varying degrees of starvation and malnutrition and were estimated to be underweight by between 50 and 200 pounds each. The horses, which include three pregnant mares and a stallion, have been under the care of the Sheriffâ€™s Office since Thursday but have not been removed from their pastures off Olson

Looking Back From the files of The Associated Press
TODAY IS SUNDAY, Feb. 19, the 50th day of 2012. There are 316 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: ■ On Feb. 19, 1942, during World War II, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, which authorized the U.S. military to exclude people from designated areas. The order was used to relocate and intern American residents of Japanese ancestry, a majority of whom were native-born U.S. citizens. On this date: ■ In 1473, astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus was born in Torun, Poland. ■ In 1803, Congress voted to
accept Ohio’s borders and constitution. ■ In 1846, the Texas state government was formally installed in Austin, with J. Pinckney Henderson taking the oath of office as governor. ■ In 1878, Thomas Edison received a U.S. patent for “an improvement in phonograph or speaking machines.” ■ In 1881, Kansas prohibited the manufacture and sale of alcoholic beverages. ■ In 1942, Japanese warplanes raided the Australian city of Darwin; at least 243 people were killed. ■ In 1945, during World War II, some 30,000 U.S. Marines
began landing on Iwo Jima, where they commenced a successful monthlong battle to seize control of the island from Japanese forces. ■ In 1959, an agreement was signed by Britain, Turkey and Greece granting Cyprus its independence. ■ In 1976, calling the issuing of Executive Order 9066 “a sad day in American history,” President Gerald R. Ford issued a proclamation confirming that the order had been terminated with the formal cessation of hostilities of World War II. ■ In 1983, 13 people were found shot to death at a gambling club in Seattle’s Chinatown in what became known as the Wah
Mee Massacre. Two Chinese immigrants were convicted of the killings and sentenced to life in prison. ■ Ten years ago: NASA’s Mars Odyssey spacecraft began mapping the Red Planet. ■ Five years ago: Hundreds of gay couples were granted the same legal rights, if not the title, as married couples as New Jersey became the third state to offer civil unions. ■ One year ago: Security forces in Libya and Yemen fired on pro-democracy demonstrators as the two hard-line regimes struck back against the wave of protests that had already toppled autocrats in Egypt and Tunisia.

A3 ■ Congress sends Obama payroll tax cut renewal/D5
Briefly: Nation Calif. shooting latest problem for federal ICE LONG BEACH, Calif. — A deadly office shooting involving a federal immigrations supervisor and a special agent is the latest mark against U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the law enforcement agency created after the 2001 terror attacks. Its officers and agents have themselves been arrested for crimes, accused of improper relationships with informants, convicted in embezzlement cases and more. Insiders said ICE, which operates under the Department of Homeland Security, struggles to overcome internal friction and competing cultures among employees who worked at the different federal agencies that were combined nine years ago to form ICE: the former Customs Service in the Treasury Department and the Justice Department’s Immigration and Naturalization Service. Investigators were piecing together details of Thursday’s chaotic scene at the ICE office in Long Beach. They said a supervisory agent, Ezequiel Garcia, shot Kevin Kozak, the agency’s second in command, at least six times. Another agent, whose name was withheld, fatally shot Garcia.

BY ERIC TUCKER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — The Moroccan man accused of plotting to carry out what he thought would be a suicide bombing at the U.S. Capitol told acquaintances that America’s war on terrorism was a war on Muslims and that they needed to be ready for battle, according to authorities. Then the 29-year-old unemployed man started preparations of his own and believed he was working with an al-Qaida operative on the plot, according to court documents and an affidavit. A man brought him an automatic weapon. He got a suicide vest, scouted out targets and practiced setting off explosives, the documents say. On Friday, Amine El Khalifi’s goal to detonate the vest at the Capitol ended with his arrest in an FBI sting, said U.S. authorities who had been monitoring him for nearly a year.
Undercover work Undercover operatives — not an al-Qaida representative as he believed — gave him a gun and explosives that didn’t work, according to an affidavit. He had those items with him when he was taken into custody at a parking garage near the Capitol, a counterterrorism official said. He was charged in a criminal complaint with knowingly and unlawfully attempting to use a

He made a brief appearance Friday afternoon in federal court in Alexandria, Va., where a judge set a bail hearing for Wednesday. El Khalifi, who is not believed to be associated with al-Qaida, expressed interest in killing at least 30 people, officials said. Two people briefed on the matter told The Associated Press the FBI has had him under surveillance around the clock for several weeks. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly. He came to the U.S. when he was 16 years old and overstayed his visitor visa, which expired in 1999, making him in the country illegally, according to court documents.
THE NEW YORK Police Department monitored Muslim college students far more broadly than previously known, at schools far beyond the city limits, including the Ivy League colleges of Yale and the University of Pennsylvania, The Associated Press has learned. Police talked with local authorities about professors 300 miles away in Buffalo and even sent an undercover agent on a whitewater rafting trip, where he recorded students’ names and noted in police intelligence files how many times they prayed. Detectives trawled Muslim student websites every day and, although professors and students had not been accused of any wrongdoing, their names were recorded in reports prepared for Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly. Asked about the monitoring, police spokesman Paul Browne provided a list of 12 people arrested or convicted on terrorism charges in the United States and abroad who had once been members of Muslim student associations, which the NYPD referred to as MSAs.

TWO CONSECUTIVE MONTHS of freezing temperatures have taken their toll on California’s citrus crop. The growers association California Citrus Mutual said about 35 percent of the mandarin orange crop will be lost to frost damage following more than 25 nights of freezing temperatures in December and several frosts in January. Though the news is better for the navel crop, about 15 percent still won’t make it. Citrus Mutual President Joel Nelsen told the Fresno Bee that it’s not clear yet what effect the freeze will have on the price of oranges and mandarins at the store.

Seventeen parents or caregivers have complained that a protective cover on the top of the bottles didn’t work correctly. It’s meant to limit how much of the liquid pain and fever reducer can be drawn into a plastic syringe. But when those consumers inserted the plastic syringe, it pushed the protective cover, or flow restrictor, into the bottle.

The Banque de France in Paris set a deadline of the close of business Friday for French savers to exchange whatever leftover franc notes they had socked away. The euro replaced the franc for monetary transactions in January 2002.

Twilight-fueled numbers of visitors lag in Forks BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
FORKS â€” The number of visitors who checked in at the Forks Visitor Information Center dropped from a peak of 73,000 visitors in 2010 to 45,000 in 2011.

The number of visitors who checked in at the visitor center was 5,575 in 2005, the
year the first book in Stephenie Meyerâ€™s four-novel series, Twilight, was released. Within a month of its release in October that year, the book was in fifth place on The New York Timesâ€™ bestseller list and later peaked at No. 1. New Moon was released in 2006, Eclipse in 2007 and Breaking Dawn in 2008 â€” and the rise in visitors to Forks â€” where Meyer located most of the action of the novels â€” followed the climb in sales of the bestselling novels.
Visitors to Forks numbered 6,386 in 2006, 10,295 in 2007 and 18,736 in 2008, with most fans of the books about teen love and vampires. In November 2008, the first movie based on the series, â€œTwilight,â€? was released, and from there, the rise in visitors was meteoric. In 2009, 70,000 visitors arrived, followed by 73,000 in 2010, according to statistics kept by the visitor center. â€œAnd that only includes the people who signed in at
the visitor center,â€? Bingham said. People who return to Forks for a second or third time usually skip the visitor center, she said. Although in 2011 the number of visitors fell to 45,000, thatâ€™s still considerable higher than before Twilight, Bingham pointed out. Forks, which has a population of 3,532, received more than $500,000 in sales taxes in 2011, mostly thanks to millions of dollars in sales of Twilight items, which contributed to funding school,
medical clinic and housing construction projects, Bingham said. The film of â€œNew Moonâ€? broke box office records as the biggest opening day in history Nov. 20, 2009. â€œEclipseâ€? was released on June 30, 2010, and the first â€œBreaking Dawnâ€? film in November 2011. A new movie release, â€œThe Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part IIâ€? on Nov. 16, is expected to help maintain visitorsâ€™ interest in the West End town. The first month of this
year, 1,062 visitors checked in at the visitor center, Bingham said. â€œAnd this is January,â€? she said, noting that the off-season is still busier than it was in the height of tourist season before Twilight. In July 2004, a mere 1,005 visitors stopped at the center, with 78 in January 2005.

Forks: Permanent Twilight museum proposed CONTINUED FROM A1 But the slide in visitor numbers still shows a slowdown in the popularity of the town that is the setting of the four-novel saga about teen love and vampires â€” which has spun off four movies, with a fifth due out in November. So the Stephenie Meyer Day Committee â€” named after the author of the bestselling series â€” is working to keep the fans coming. â€œThe committee is trying to keep people coming to Forks,â€? said Rosemary Colandrea, spokeswoman for the 12-member committee that formed in 2011. â€œOur slogan is: Come for Twilight. Stay for Forks.â€? Colandrea said the group is considering ways to revive interest in Twilight. â€œThereâ€™s a huge fan base,â€? she said. â€œWe want to keep it going.â€?
A new event this year will be Twilight weddings. Thirty people can have weddings performed â€” or vows renewed â€” on three days in August, leading up to Aug. 13, the date Bella Swan married her vampire swain, Edward Cullen, in â€œThe Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1,â€? which was released in November. â€œThe wedding will look just like the wedding from the movie,â€? Colandrea said. Couples will be surrounded by wisteria, and ceremonies will use an arch that is a copy of the one used in a parody of the movie on The Hillywood Show at www.the hillywoodshow, an Internet site known for its spoofs of the â€œTwilight Saga.â€? The ceremonies â€” up to 10 each day â€” will be performed by Colandreaâ€™s husband, Nino, who is a nondenominational minister. No site has been confirmed yet, though â€œweâ€™re
negotiating with a few people to get an outdoor site for the weddings,â€? Colandrea said. Nevertheless, reservations are being taken now through June 13. The fees are $1,595 on Saturday, Aug. 11, $1,795 on Sunday, Aug. 12, and $1,995 on Monday, Aug. 13. The Twilight weddings would be performed after the June 7 effective date of a new state law legalizing gay marriage â€” though the date could be delayed if opponents are successful in taking the issue to the voters. If gay marriage is legal by August, â€œweâ€™re open to everybody,â€? Colandrea said. For more information about the weddings, visit www.twilightweddingsinforks.com or phone 360-3740358. Also planned is a film festival at this yearâ€™s Stephenie Meyer Day Weekend, which will be Sept. 14-16. Hillary and Hannah
Hindi, sisters who operate the online Hillywood Show, have confirmed that they will provide parodies, and other films are in the works, Colandrea said. Last yearâ€™s Stephenie Meyer Day Weekend drew between 2,000 and 3,000 people, Colandrea said, and the committee hopes to at least match that this fall with expanded events. The townâ€™s first Stephenie Meyer Day was in 2006. An idea the committee is developing is a Twilight museum. Colandrea told about 35 people at a Forks Chamber of Commerce meeting last week that once the darkness falls on the â€œTwilight Sagaâ€? movie series and the flood of fans likely slows to a trickle, a Twilight museum could keep a steady flow of visitors coming to town. She and other organizers have scheduled a grand opening date, Sept. 13, 2014
â€” corresponding with Bellaâ€™s birthday â€” but have no location and no investors. Colandrea asked Forks business people at the Wednesday meeting to invest in the museum and help find an affordable location. â€œIf we had something permanent here, it would draw visitors,â€? Colandrea said later. A permanent museum would give Twilight visitors a place to go, a home for the many Twilight-themed items that already exist in Forks and a fitting place to display collections from other areas of the country, she said. It would feature original and re-created items from the movies, The Hillywood Show, recreations of movie sets or scenes from the books and posters, scripts and other items. Colandrea said the committee has purchased the arch from the prom scene filmed at The View Point Inn
in Corbett, Ore., from the first movie, â€œTwilight,â€? and the set directorâ€™s handbook. The arch, which is currently being shipped to Forks in three pieces, would serve as the formal entrance to the museum, Colandrea said. She declined to reveal the purchase price. â€œTwilightâ€? collector John Henson of Nevada, who owns the largest collection of â€œTwilightâ€? memorabilia â€” including all the furniture in the movie set of Bella Swanâ€™s bedroom â€” has given the museum organizers the right of first refusal to purchase or lease the items, she said.

the median value of property there was about $167,000. Using $160,000 as a baseline for the region, property tax bills have rising at a slow-but-steady pace in Clallam County. In Port Angeles, the owner of a $160,000 piece of property was billed $1,566 for 2010 taxes, $1,637 in 2011 and $1,785 this year. Port Angeles residents were subject to the school levy and 1 percent increases from the state levy, county general fund levy, county road levy and hospital levy. The owner of a $160,000 piece of property in Sequim paid $1,346 in property taxes in 2010, $1,481 in 2011 and will receive a $1,613 tax bill this year. Sequim residents were subject to 1 percent increases from the state levy, county general fund levy, county road levy, city levy, hospital levy and fire district levy.
A $160,000 Forks property generated $1,779 in 2010 property taxes, $1,823 in 2011 taxes and $1,886 in taxes this year. Forks residents were subject to 1 percent increases from the state levy, county general fund levy, county road levy, city levy, hospital levy and fire district levy. In unincorporated Clallam County west of Joyce, property tax on a $160,000 home has gone from $1,092 in 2010 to $1,232 in 2011 to $1,323 this year. In both Agnew and Bell Hill, property tax on a $160,000 home has risen from $1,303 in 2010 to $1,450 in 2011 to $1,590 this year. County residents were subject to 1 percent increases from the state levy, county general fund levy, county road levy, hospital levy and fire district levies. Barkhuis noted that a home worth $160,000 in
2009 would almost certainly be worth less now â€” roughly $156,000 in 2010 and $146,000 in 2011. The owner of a $146,000 home would pay less property tax than the owner of a $160,000 home in every taxing district in Clallam County. â€œDecreased assessed values, especially when combined with increased tax revenues to be collected, is why levy rates go up, so the change in assessed value must be considered when comparing taxes paid from year to year,â€? Barkhuis said. Barkhuis provided the following breakdown of where the property tax collected by the Treasurerâ€™s Office will go: â– $19.2 million, or 24.7 percent, to school bonds and maintenance and operation levies. â– $17.7 million, or 22.8 percent, to state schools.
â– $9.7 million, or 12.5 percent, to the Clallam County general fund. â– $8.4 million, or 10.8 percent, to fire districts. â– $6.6 million, or 8.5 percent, to the Clallam County road fund. â– $6.1 million, or 7.9 percent, to the cities of Port Angeles, Sequim and Forks. â– $4.2 million, or 5.4 percent, to hospital districts. â– $3.8 million, or 4.8 percent, to the North Olympic Library System. â– $1.4 million, or 1.8 percent, to the Port of Port Angeles. â– $465,000, or 0.6 percent, to the William Shore Memorial Pool District.

Questions about PT takeover of Fort Worden asked BY CHARLIE BERMANT
â€œWe have been gathering public input on this for eight years,â€? he said. â€œWe will not proceed [with any transfer] until we are sure the PDA can be successful.â€?
PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND â€” The more than 200 people who attended a meeting last week to learn about the possibility of the Lifelong Learning Center Public Development Authority taking over all or part of the ownership and management of Fort Worden State Park were left with more questions than answers about the process. The idea of turning the park into a lifelong learning center has been in progress since 2004, but it was just a couple of weeks ago that a proposal for a public development takeover of the park was discussed at a state Parks and Recreation Commission meeting. Action was tabled until the commissionâ€™s next meeting, which will be at Fort Worden in March. The topic will be discussed at 7 p.m. March 28 in the Wheeler Theater. Some of those commenting Thursday night feel the process is moving too quickly.
Question of taxes
income needed for its operation. The plan will include options for funding this gap, she said. PDA Executive Director Dave Robison has said in the past that ownership would open financing avenues with banks and other partners that could help pay for the parkâ€™s continued operation, maintenance and management. The lifelong learning center is envisioned to provide space for a variety of recreational and educational opportunities. The focus is to develop destination learning programs at Fort Worden, along with retreats, conference development, events and recreational experiences on the park overlooking Admiralty Inlet. Under the proposal State Parks is considering, Fort Worden would remain a park but would no longer be called a state park.
â€œI have no stake here aside from the fact that I pay taxes,â€? said Walter McQuillen of Port Townsend. â€œThe people on the PDA board are smart people. They are business people who are going to take the park out of the governmentâ€™s hands and run it like a business,â€? McQuillen said. â€œBut a smart business person will have a plan and have the funds lined up before taking action. â€œI want to see how they CHARLIE BERMANT/PENINSULA DAILY NEWS are going to accomplish this Union representative Jeanine Livingston challenges the proposal for a without my tax dollars.â€? public development authority to take over Fort Worden at a meeting in Former park manager Port Townsend.

the horsesâ€™ care for now. She said the owners have 15 days to reclaim the horses through court. If that request is denied or not made, the horses will be placed with new owners, possibly a licensed rescue center, the Sheriffâ€™s Office said. The Sheriffâ€™s Office is asking for help in caring for
the horses. Anyone who can provide food or other services can phone Chief Criminal Deputy Ron Cameron at 360417-2570.

Sequim walk-in clinic to shutter soon Canâ€™t make ends meet, owner says
â€œBridgett has a great following. People thought, â€˜She will always be there to take care of me.â€™ What has been rewarding is watching her interact with patients, watching how much she cares for them.â€?
BY DIANE URBANI DE LA PAZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
SEQUIM â€” With a heavy heart, Bridgett Bell Kraft is shutting down the clinic she opened here five years ago. Primary Care Sequim, in the plaza at 520 N. Fifth Ave., will close its doors at 3 p.m. March 7. â€œI really believed that we could provide real, patientcentered care. And I think to a large degree, weâ€™ve succeeded,â€? Bell Kraft, an advanced registered nurse practitioner, said Friday. â€œBut the reimbursement issues have really killed us.â€? Since Primary Care Sequim began offering walk-in urgent care in late 2006, 18,500 patients have visited the clinic, Bell Kraft said. Many of those are on Medicare or Medicaid, which pay lower reimbursements than private insurance carriers.
Slow payments And even the payments from private insurers come slowly, Bell Kraft said â€” too slowly for the clinic to make ends meet. Compounding the problem, she added, is the fact that nurse practitioners receive lower reimbursements than physicians. Bell Kraft could increase the number of patients she sees in a day to bring in more revenue, but that would be contrary to her values. Already, she sees 18 to

CliniCare, the urgent-care center at 621 E. Front St. in Port Angeles, for two years. David Kanters, also a nurse practitioner, closed that clinic in October 2010, saying insurance carriers, and the related bureaucracy, had burned him out. He reopened CliniCare last August with a new strategy â€” he bills his patients directly at the time of service. Most major credit cards are accepted. Kanters also bolstered his practice by bringing nurse practitioner Deb Wheeler on board in January. Itâ€™s been busy, but â€œa lot of people donâ€™t realize weâ€™re open again,â€? said Jessica Dougherty, CliniCareâ€™s medical office assistant. â€œWe are happy to be here,â€? she added. CliniCare is open from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. As for Primary Care Sequim, the walk-in clinic will be open from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. weekdays until March 7. The office can be reached at 360-582-1200.

OLYMPIA â€” The State Patrol is accomplishing a $41 million radio upgrade by hitching its wagon to a federal program that is described in a new federal audit as having poor oversight of money and an uncertain future. The Department of Justice has worked 13 years to upgrade its law enforcement radios, starting with a pilot project in Washington and Oregon. But the departmentâ€™s inspector general questions what the agency has to show for about $356 million spent. The Obama administrationâ€™s budget calls for pulling the plug at least for now on a planned national expansion of the program. Implications for the State Patrol are unclear. The halt in expansion doesnâ€™t shut down the Washington and Oregon network thatâ€™s being linked up with the patrol.

â€œThe audit is very scathing on the system build-out as a whole,â€? Bob Schwent, commander of the State Patrolâ€™s electronic services division, told The Olympian newspaper. â€œ[But] the system out here actually is working well and continues to work well. Itâ€™s just that theyâ€™re not going to fund any expansion of it.â€? One state lawmaker said the audit raises â€œserious questionsâ€? about the State Patrolâ€™s move onto a system controlled by the federal government. Rep. Reuven Carlyle, D-Seattle, said he doubts that a program that isnâ€™t
being expanded nationally can survive. â€œIt seems a more likely approach would be a phone call sometime from the feds saying that they are canceling the program or offering it to the state for them to maintain,â€? Carlyle said. Schwent doesnâ€™t rule out the possibility.
Possibility not ruled out â€œIf this portion out here for some reason were defunded, weâ€™ve already taken steps that we could continue operating,â€? he said. But he acknowledged: â€œWeâ€™d have some reductions in what we can do and how we continue to do it.â€? The state must comply by Jan. 1 with a federal mandate to free up space on the radio spectrum for more users. The State Patrol sought and won legislative approval for its own upgrade that meets the federal mandate while also moving to a digital system to prevent a loss of radio reception coverage. A loss of coverage could open up dead zones where state troopers out in the field couldnâ€™t talk with each other or dispatchers during emergencies.
Rejected nationwide The federal Department of Justice started the upgrade in Washington but soon rejected using it as a template for national expansion. As described in the audit, the department decided that while the design met â€œcurrent communication requirements,â€? it might not handle â€œsignificant advances in new technologies.â€? The department also
had concerns about the cost of a lack of competition, according to the audit. The Northwest system depends on the proprietary technology of one company, Motorola Solutions. The State Patrol signed a $26 million no-bid contract with Motorola, saying that working with the federal system was some $12 million cheaper than building its own. Carlyle is a critic of the deal, saying that even if it saves money in the short run, it commits the state to â€œmonopoly pricing.â€? Much of the January audit focuses on problems with expansion. It says the Integrated Wireless Network, or IWN, is falling short of its goals to replace the departmentâ€™s obsolete technology, consolidate systems used by various federal agents and ensure security. The delay is â€œpotentially jeopardizing the lives of law enforcement and emergency personnel and the people they have sworn to protect,â€? it says. Those problems are less pressing in the Northwest, where upgrades are in place.
Program oversight Auditors also took aim at the programâ€™s oversight, saying, â€œIt is impossible to determine the true cost of the IWN program.â€? The departmentâ€™s formal response to the audit says no money is spent without its approval and oversight. It says that in the Northwest and some other places, it has â€œachieved significant improvements in the wireless communications capabilities delivered to our law enforcement agents.â€?

Hearing Friday Williams set 1:30 p.m. this coming Friday for a change-of-plea hearing for Boyd, who will be sentenced at a subsequent hearing, county Deputy Prosecuting Attorney John Troberg said. A charge of driving under the influence was an element of the vehicular homicide and vehicular assault charges against Boyd, Troberg said. The State Patrol said Boyd had a 0.12 percent blood-alcohol level from a blood sample taken 95 minutes after the wreck and a 0.079 percent blood-alcohol level taken from a portable Breathalyzer about two hours after the wreck. The legal limit in Washington is 0.08 percent. About a dozen members

PORT ANGELES — An allegedly drunken driver who was in a fatal head-on collision Aug. 25 on state Highway 112 will plead guilty to vehicular homicide and two counts of vehicular assault and will serve five years in prison. Steven W. Boyd, 48, of Port Angeles killed Darrell E. Campbell, 49, an Ahousat, B.C., tribal member and severely injured Campbell’s brother and niece when he hit their vehicle. In a five-minute status hearing Friday, Boyd told Clallam County Superior Court Judge Ken Williams he would change his plea from not guilty to guilty and was returned to Clallam County jail on $50,000 bail.

of the family of Darrell Campbell, a member of the Ahousaht First Nation, were present in Clallam County Superior Court when Boyd said through his lawyer, Alex Stalker of Clallam Public Defender, that he would change his plea to guilty of vehicular homicide and two counts of vehicular assault. Among them was Angus Campbell, the driver of the vehicle that was struck by Boyd, who was treated at Olympic Medical Center after the wreck. He was on crutches at the hearing. A few of the family members left sobbing after the hearing. The family members included Darrell Campbell’s nephew, Pat John, a former Port Angeles resident who now lives on Long Island, N.Y. John helped organize a prayer ceremony for his uncle at the site near Sands Road a day after the crash and Friday. In agreeing to plead guilty, Boyd, who has a daughter, “humbled himself in doing the right thing,” John said in an interview. “It’s being humble and accepting what he did and accepting his responsibility as an individual and a parent.” He said North Olympic Peninsula tribes had helped with travel and other expenses for Darrell Campbell’s family to travel to Clallam County for court proceedings. John said in an earlier interview that Darrell Campbell did not drink and “was always the designated driver.” Darrell Campbell was a

Clallam pens letter to Ecology on water County poses concerns over proposed management rule BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — Clallam County lawmakers have sent a four-page letter to the state Department of Ecology outlining their concerns over the proposed water management rule for the Dungeness River and its neighboring streams. The draft rule would affect the eastern half of Water Resource Inventory Area 18 from Bagley Creek to Sequim Bay. ________ The idea behind the rule Senior Staff Writer Paul Gottlieb is to protect and preserve can be reached at 360-417-3536 water for fish, farmers, resior at paul.gottlieb@peninsuladaily dents, wildlife and recrenews.com. ation. It limits water usage by new homeowners and requires metering of new wells to protect water supplies and viable fish habitat during the drought season in the late summer and early fall.
Water credits If implemented, the state rule would require new homeowners to purchase water credits from the Dungeness Basis Water Exchange to water their lawn or garden. It would not affect existing homes with working wells. County commissioners listed 19 questions from themselves and community members in their letter sent last week to Ecology Director Ted Sturdevant. Public comments made in a Feb. 7 commissioners meeting were incorporated into the questions. A link to the letter is prominently displayed on the Clallam County website, www.clallam.net. County commissioners spent more than two hours revising the letter in an

open session Monday and another hour fine-tuning it Tuesday. “I think it’s clear that there are three county commissioners who are wellversed, well-studied on this issue, that are not just making cheap political points,” Commissioner Mike Chapman said in Monday’s discussion session. Chapman said the county is “trying really hard to do the best thing for our community.” Some speakers at the public meeting said the rule infringes on property rights because its minimum instream flow puts too great a limit on the use of water. Ecology defines the term “in-stream flow” as the amount of water measured in cubic feet per second for a defined time that is needed “to protect and preserve . . . fish, wildlife and recreation.” Others said the watershed plan is based on 20-year-old data and needs to be updated. The Port Angeles Business Association drafted its own letter, saying Ecology is “proposing a number of significant, even draconian, limitations on the water usage” in the interest of protecting fish.
Consequences Several speakers in the public meeting said the proposed water rule would have bad unintended consequences, such as people running their well pumps to maximize capacity when they don’t need the water. Other speakers, including a water law attorney and a state Department of Fish and Wildlife representative, spoke in favor of the proposed rule. The preliminary water

“I see an imbalance in the rule, as currently drafted, between demand and supply. I think it’s incumbent of state government to work both sides of the issue.” JIM MCENTIRE commissioner management rule is available at www.tinyurl.com/ yj95yj6. In their letter, commissioners invited Ecology to field questions raised by community members in a forum hosted by the county. Ecology officials attended two community forums last month in Sequim. Commissioner Mike Doherty said the people who attended those meetings were “generally satisfied” with the answers they received from state officials. Commissioner Jim McEntire said the rule is “really about managing demand for water.” “I see an imbalance in the rule, as currently drafted, between demand and supply,” he said. “I think it’s incumbent of state government to work both sides of the issue.” A report from the Dungeness Local Leaders water management work group was attached to the letter Chapman said the work group and Ecology are tasked with three main goals: ■ Preventing permanent reductions in the flows of the Dungeness River. ■ Supplying adequate and reliable water for new users. ■ Maintaining sustainable agriculture in the Dungeness Valley. “Those are the three main issues facing the area,” Chapman said. “It’s broad-based, and many people have specific issues or concerns surrounding one of those three. “But I think we, as community leaders, have to kind of keep our mind and our eyes on the three key goals here, of which are very important to all of us.” McEntire said he had other concerns about the county’s involvement in the water rule. He said the county does not have the staff or financial capacity to manage WRIA 18. “I am not aware of any legal authority that county governments have to do water, and I’m not terribly interested in gaining such tasks in the future,” McEntire said. “If Ecology wants the county to be involved in the operations of whatever needs to be done as the result of this rule, that’s going to have to come with resources, and we’re going to have to have a separate discussion about that.”

Border Patrol detains 2 Guatemalans PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Two citizens of Guatemala who were arrested Jan. 31 near Forks were among 10 people who were apprehended by U.S. Border Patrol agents operating out of the Blaine Sector office Jan. 31-Feb. 7. One of the 10 â€” a Mexican national â€” asked to be deported, the Border Patrol said. The Blaine sector includes Alaska, Oregon and the western half of Washington, but the Border Patrol report includes only arrests made in the western half of Washington. The Guatemalan nationals arrested near Forks, apprehended during a vehicle stop, were processed for removal from the United States, the Border Patrol said. The weekly report by the Border Patrol does not include arrests that lead to
ongoing investigations. It also includes only incidents of the Border Patrolâ€™s choosing, does not include the gender of those arrested and is always limited to one page, regardless of the number of arrests made. Unless otherwise noted, all of those arrested were processed for removal from the U.S. Hereâ€™s the list, with information given by the Border Patrol: â– Jan. 31 â€” Border Patrol agents who discovered footprints leading away from the U.S. border with Canada apprehended two citizens of Mexico hiding in the woods in an area east of Blaine. One subject had a criminal history that included felony charges in 2006 for trafficking in illegal drugs. The person had an active extraditable Clayton County, Ga., warrant for methamphetamine trafficking, which carries a minimum
five-year sentence. Arrangements were made to extradite the person to Georgia, and an immigration detainer was placed on the person. â– Feb. 2 â€” Operators of a remote-video surveillance system saw a person illegally enter the U.S. from Canada near Blaine. A Mexican national was discovered hiding in the woods just south of the border. â– Feb. 2 â€” A Mexican citizen illegally in the U.S. went to the Border Patrol station in Bellingham and asked to be returned to Mexico. The person was arrested and processed for removal under a prior order of removal. â– Feb. 6 â€” A Border Patrol agent apprehended four citizens of India who were walking southbound from the international border in an area east of Sumas.
PORT ANGELES â€” Every Monday night, 16-year-old Erin Hennessey drives to Tacoma and back. Hennessey spends an hour there with a doctor â€” Maria Sampen, a doctor of music who is one of her biggest fans. Hennessey is the winner of the 2012 Young Artists Competition, a contest sponsored by the Port Angeles Symphony Orchestra on Jan. 28. Symphony conductor Adam Stern and other veteran musicians voted her the top player in the field of 11 contestants from across the North Olympic Peninsula and awarded her a $500 cash prize. While Hennessey won the competition for musicians age 22 and younger, pianist Wei-Yan Fu, 13, topped the Junior Young Artists Competition for students in ninth grade or below. As the winner in the field of 12 competitors, he took home $250 in cash.
Passion, gratitude Both teens are striking in two respects: unabashed passion and gratitude. Fu won with his performance of Chopinâ€™s Nocturne in E flat, a melody he said astonished him from the first moment he heard it. â€œI love music, and I always will,â€? said Fu, who has been playing piano since first grade. He started out with teachers Thelma and Richard McCoy and now studies with Kayla Dyment. â€œShe has taught me a lot about shaping my music,â€? he said.
Hennessey Fu Fu, an eighth-grader at Stevens Middle School, also took up the cello four years ago. Hennessey is both a violinist and a fiddler: Sheâ€™s concertmistress of the Port Angeles High School Chamber Orchestra and a member of the Black Diamond Fiddle Club, a Port Angeles band. â€œShe has something really special. And she works hard. Those two things go hand in hand,â€? said Sampen, a professor at Tacomaâ€™s University of Puget Sound and a violinist who performs as a soloist all over the world.
After the competition, she expressed her gratitude to Ahmann, Sampen and Port Angeles High orchestra director Ron Jones â€œfor their expertise and wisdom.â€? Teaching Hennessey â€” who started lessons at age 4 â€” â€œwas my delight,â€? said Ahmann, adding that Hennessey is a natural â€” yet humble about it. For the competition, Hennessey chose Ravelâ€™s â€œTzigane,â€? a showpiece for violinists. â€œItâ€™s flashy and full of technical tricks,â€? she said. â€œI heard it performed when I was younger, and I was thrilled to get the opportunity to play it myself.â€? After graduation next year, Hennessey hopes to go either to a music conservatory or a college with an affiliated school of music â€” to pursue degrees in both music and biology. As for that $500 in cash, sheâ€™s saving it for after high school. â€œI hope to spend it, after I graduate, on a trip to Ireland to study Irish traditional music,â€? Hennessey said. Other standouts in the Young Artists Competitions include pianists Jeremy Choe, 14; Curry Winborn, 18; Tarah Erickson, 17, and Cole Urnes, 15; and double bassist Michael Helwick, 14, who received honorable mentions. For more information about the contests and other Port Angeles Symphony Orchestra activities, phone the symphony office at 360457-5579 or visit www. PortAngelesSymphony.org.
Hennesseyâ€™s musical future is wide open, Sampen added. â€œWhen Erin performs, she just lights up. Thereâ€™s a new element that comes into her playing . . . she is very passionate, very sincere.â€? Another thing that stands out about this teenager: Sheâ€™s grateful to be a young musician in Port Angeles. â€œIn such a small area, we are extremely lucky,â€? Hennessey said, â€œto benefit from the Port Angeles Symphony and the expertise of our private teachers.â€?

Wanted: A few good local heroes Deadline is March 5 for nominations for award PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Now is the time to nominate your local hero. We are looking for people who make a difference in Clallam County — individuals who have made our communities a better place. Soroptimist International of Port Angeles-Noon Club and the Peninsula Daily News invite nominations for the 2012 Clallam County Community Service Award. The award recognizes the dedication, sacrifice and accomplishments of local people who do extraordinary things for their neighbors, their community or the environment. This is the 33rd year for the award, begun by the PDN and now co-sponsored by the Soroptimist noon club. Past recipients of the Community Service Award have organized community efforts to clean up waterways, served as literacy tutors, raised money for the disabled, protected animals, organized food programs for the hungry, aided crime victims and their families, founded a cancer survivor support group, built a playground for special-needs children and were instrumental in the creation of teen activity centers. The award recipients merit both honor and imitation, said John Brewer, PDN publisher and editor. “They are role models for all of us, not only because they’ve aspired and dreamed, but because our local heroes’ achievements are within our own reach,” Brewer said. “They show us that all of us can be part of something greater than ourselves.”
■ Nominations should be made using the accompanying coupon and must be returned to the PDN by 5 p.m. Monday, March 5. ■ A letter describing the merits and accomplishments of the person being nominated should be submitted with the coupon. ■ If possible, the nomination should include supporting documents, such as copies (not originals) of other awards, newspaper articles or letters of support. ■ Anyone who lives in Clallam County can be nominated. Recipients of the Community Service Award in the past are not eligible for a 2012 award. But those previously nominated, but not selected, for a Community Service Award are eligible for renomination. A panel of judges will review the nominations and select one to seven people to receive a Community Service Award at an evening reception in Port Angeles in late April. Questions? Please phone Brewer at 360-417-3500. Or email him at john.brewer@peninsula dailynews.com.

TAX TIME CASH COMES FROM UNEXPECTED SOURCE:
TRADING IN YOUR OLD CAR
ax time can mean a much-needed cash “bonus” for many people. But for some people, like business owners, it can mean the opposite. Many business owners feel the pinch around tax time because in good times or bad Uncle Sam always gets his piece of the pie. Some local business owners look for creative, ethical ways to deal with tax time trauma. Local Car Dealer Mark Ostroot, from Price SuperStore is one of the most innovative when it comes to finding solutions that benefit his customers at the same time. Tax time is no different. “It’s tax time and my accountant said I need to reduce my tax burden. So I’m going to OVER PAY for your old car so I can stock my lot with traded in vehicles,” said Mark Ostroot, General Manager of Price SuperStore.
“Here’s my thought: I’d rather give money to my customers than give it to the government,” exclaimed Ostroot. “So, if I over pay for trades now, I may lower my tax burden in the future.” Ostroot continues, “Here’s the deal, I’m willing to pay you up to $4,297.00 more for your old car than it’s actually worth, no matter where you bought the car, just to satisfy my accountant.” “I’m calling this my EZ Trade Tax Time Rewards Program. You’ve probably filed an EZ form in the past to get your cash back faster. Well, I’m using my EZ Trade Program to make it simple for you to trade in the old car you hate driving and get a tax time reward of up to $4,297.00 more than it’s actually worth.”
THE EZ WAY TO GET A FATTER RETURN
TAX TIME MAKES CREDIT APPROVAL EZ (ER)
“If you don’t have a trade-in, to help you minimize the tax season, I’ll double your tax refund up to $2,500.00, so you can own the nicer, newer car you’ve always wanted today,” explained Ostroot.
“For The People® Credit Approval Process is perfect if you have had credit problems in the past,” said Ostroot. “Using my program and your refund together could actually make it easier for you to get approved this month!”
Ostroot told us that he doesn’t care where or when you bought the car you trade in. He also doesn’t care whether it’s a lease or a loan or how many payments you have left. He wants to buy as many vehicles as he can from local residents and he is willing to pay more than the vehicle is actually worth because of the effect it could have on his tax liability down the road.
Price SuperStore has a special process to work with customers who have credit challenges They work with many lenders who specialize in approving customers with below average credit scores and have specially trained staff members who know how to put the best deal together in these more challenging financial situations. This means that Price SuperStore is able to help some people who have been turned down at other dealerships actually drive the nicer, newer car they need and want.
Customers will get up to $4,297.00 more for any car they bring in, which can make your tax time returns much greater than they would be otherwise. Ostroot asks, “What will you buy with all the extra money?”
THERE IS A TAX TIME REWARD DEADLINE
and we plan on coming as close to that goal as we possibly can.” “We help a lot of people with tough credit situations every single month. If there’s a way to get you approved, we’re going to go to the ends of the earth to find it. We don’t give up here. It’s our mission to help people drive a nicer, newer car. I don’t believe anyone should drive a car they hate,” Ostroot boasted.
DON’T BE DEPENDENT ON DEDUCTIONS Ostroot revealed to us that his customers don’t have to be dependent on deductions. Customers who take advantage of his EZ Trade Tax Time Rewards Program will get their tax time reward directly from the dealership even before most people see a dollar from the government. Price SuperStore will pay $4,297.00 more for your old car than it’s actually worth: t/PNBUUFSXIFSFZPVCPVHIUUIFDBS t/PNBUUFSIPXNBOZNJMFTJUIBTPOJU t/PNBUUFSJGJUTBMFBTFPSBMPBO t/PNBUUFSXIBUDPOEJUJPOJUTJO Overpaying for trade-ins will create additional expense for the dealership thereby reducing their future tax liability, while at the same time helping buyers get a great deal on a nicer, newer car today. Plus, Price SuperStore will be doubling tax refunds up to $2,500.00 if you don’t have a trade, which can be applied as a down payment on a nicer, newer car. This is perfect for anyone who wants to lower their monthly payments and can also help credit challenged customers get approved when they previously could not get they financing they need to drive a nicer, newer car.
Purchase at retail price over $9999, rebates reassigned to dealership, complete details posted at dealership, not compatible with other offers or discounts. On Approval of Credit. All Sales are plus tax, license and a negotiable $150 documentation fee. See Dealer for details. Ad expires 2/29/12.
The deadline for taking advantage of Ostroot’s EZ Trade Tax Time Rewards Program and getting more for your trade and the expanded refund is February 29th or when his accountant decides enough is enough, whichever comes first. To reserve a VIP appointment with a Price SuperStore financing and transportation expert please call (360) 457-3333 right now or visit the dealership in person today across from Frugal’s in Port Angeles!
“I’ve been refining my For The People® Credit Approval Process for quite some time now,” revealed Ostroot. “I can’t say it’s perfect yet, but it’s very strong. Our goal this month is

Will the meeting come to order? THESE ARE THE official meeting minutes of the Neighborhood Committee, transcribed by me because I arrived five minutes late and found I had been elected recording secretary by unanimous proclamation plus derisive laughter and insults. 1. The newly elected record- W. Bruce ing secretary (me) submitted Cameron his resignation. The chair ruled that resignations could be submitted only at the end of the meeting; also, several people threw pretzels. 2. Mrs. Kilgore declared for the record that people should not throw food, not even at the recording secretary, who she stated deserved it because his St. Bernard was always running loose and terrorizing the little dogs of the neighborhood, like the tiny one she owns, which is of the breed “quishy-poo” (spelling approximate and phonetic). The recording secretary
denied that the St. Bernard runs loose and denied that it terrorizes quishy-poos, and anyway, he doesn’t even own a St. Bernard. 3. Mr. Clark said these pretzels are stale, who brought them anyway? When Mrs. Clark said that she did, Mr. Clark withdrew his objection. 4. A speech was delivered by Mr. Nedermeyer complaining about children, cars, cats, trash and basically everything else in the neighborhood. The chair ruled that since there was no motion, Mr. Nedermeyer’s comments would be stricken from the record, which was good because the recording secretary didn’t bother to write them down anyway. Mr. Nedermeyer objected to having his rant cut off, so he was pelted with stale pretzels. 5. Motion from Mrs. Ladner that we change the name of the Neighborhood Committee to one that more accurately reflected what the committee did. Seconded by acclamation. Discussion: This motion would be difficult to implement since no one was aware of the committee
having actually done anything. Names were discussed: ■ “Neighborhood Watch Committee”: Pro — lots of neighborhoods have these committees, and we could possibly get a cool sign from some government agency or maybe just go to one of those neighborhoods and steal one. Con — nobody in the neighborhood watches much of anything but television. ■ “Neighborhood Action Committee”: Pro — it sounds like we’re accomplishing a lot and maybe people would pay their dues. Con — nobody can think of any action to take. ■ “Neighborhood Peace and Freedom Committee”: Pro — Miss Newman likes this idea, and the men all seem to like Miss Newman. Con — Mrs. Clark will resign from the committee if we pick this, and she’s the only one willing to bring beverages and snacks (i.e., stale projectile pretzels). The chair announced that in the interest of adjourning in time to catch the basketball game, he was appointing Mrs. Ladner to form a subcommittee

IT USED TO be called illegitimacy. Now it is the new normal. After steadily rising for five decades, the share of children born to unmarried women has crossed a threshold: More than half of births to U.S. women younger than 30 occur outside marriage. Once largely limited to poor women and minorities, motherhood without marriage has settled deeply into middle America. The fastest growth in the past two decades has occurred among white women in their 20s who have some college education but no four-year degree, according to Child Trends, a Washington research group that analyzed government data.

I realize that political correctness is the order of the day, truth is outdated, and the Elwha River project will be touted as marvelous no matter what. The PDN article “Dam Party Brought Only Trickle of Funds” [Jan. 30] compels response, regardless. The “trickle of funds” was outlay, not income, as the article clearly states. The projected boon to our area went unrealized. No hordes of visitors materialized, as expected. Port Angeles City Manager Kent Myers acknowledged that the city’s motel/ hotel revenue for September 2011 was $27,000 less than September of 2010. And the city of Port Angeles spent $14,500 “sprucing up downtown” for the anticipated 5,000 to 10,000 people who failed to show. Olympic National Park spokeswoman Barb Maynes

Mrs. Dutton amended her motion to make the payment of the fine voluntary. Discussion of Mr. Nedermeyer’s question: Is “voluntary fine” an oxymoron, or is Mrs. Dutton a moron? Discussion: Will Mr. Dutton punch Mr. Nedermeyer in the nose? Discussion: Next time, would Mrs. Clark bring tomatoes or something more fun to throw than pretzels?

Among mothers of all ages, a majority — 59 percent in 2009 — are married when they have children. But the surge of births outside marriage among younger women — nearly two-thirds of U.S. children are born to mothers younger than 30 — is both a symbol of the transforming family and a hint of coming generational change. One group still largely resists the trend: College graduates overwhelmingly marry before having children. That is turning family structure into a new class divide, with the economic and social rewards of marriage increasingly reserved for people with the most education. The New York Times

The article reminds me of the following exercise that appears in the fourth-grade arithmetic textbook I stole from Jefferson School sometime during the late 1950s: “John purchased seven apples for Jeri. “While carrying the apples to Jeri’s house, John encountered two erstwhile bank robbers who were down on their luck after being forced into early retirement due to enhanced bank security measures. “The outlaws stole three apples from John.

SEATTLE — Terrence Ross made sure on a day to honor Washington’s seniors that his sophomore season at home finished with an exclamation. Ross scored 15 of his 25 points in the first half, Tony Wroten added 22 and Washington pulled away in the final five minutes for a 79-70 win over Arizona on Saturday to cling to a share of first place in the Pac12. For the first time in their last four meetings, the Wildcats and Huskies didn’t decide the outcome on the final possession. That was just fine by the Huskies (19-8, 12-3 Pac-12), who close the regular season with three straight road games. Ross was nearly perfect inside the 3-point line, hitting 10 of the 11 shots he took inside the arc. He was 11 of 19 shooting

Nick Johnson led Arizona (19-9, 10-5) with 20 points, but the Wildcats saw their fivegame win streak snapped. Ross left the game with 11 seconds remaining to chants of “One More Year!” from the home crowd.
Ross is desired by NBA scouts who believe his 6-foot-6 frame and outside shooting ability translates well to the next level. Ross wasn’t very good on 3-pointers, but he was great within 20 feet. Ross scored on pull-ups, lobs and even a rebound-follow bas-
ket as he was awkwardly falling out of bounds. Meanwhile, Wroten was a bull as Arizona could not keep the freshman out of the lane. He made just 8 of 22 shots, but grabbed nine rebounds, many of those his own misses. TURN
Enough snow for Poma ski lift BY LEAH LEACH PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — The Poma ski lift at Hurricane Ridge will be open for the first time this season today if the road to the ridge is open. Craig Hofer, Hurricane Ridge Winter Sports Club mountain manager, said at about 1:30 p.m. Saturday that snow was coming down hard at the ridge. He estimated that snow was falling at a rate of about 1½ inches per hour, with some 27
Hurricane Ridge inches dropped on the popular snowplay area south of Port Angeles in the prior 24 hours. ““We’re buried to the max,” he said. “We have a lot of work to do.” Although the rope tows have been operating, the Poma lift has been closed because of a lack of snow. The Hurricane Ridge Road was closed Saturday because of heavy overnight snow, drifts in the parking lot and blizzard con-
ditions, according to the Olympic National Parks’ hotline at 360-565-3131. Call the hotline, or check www.nps.gov/olym to see if the road is open today. Weather permitting, Hurricane Ridge will be open both today and on the Presidents Day holiday Monday. If the road is open, the ski tows and lift will be operating and rangers will lead snowshoe walks. Hours for ski tows are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The bunny lift rope tow costs
$12 for both all day and half day. Intermediate and bunny lifts are $24 for all day and $22 for half day. The Poma lift is $32 for all day and $30 for half day. Ranger-led, 90-minute snowshoe walks for individuals and families are offered at 2 p.m. daily. Space on the walks is limited, so people should sign up at the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center information desk beginning 30 minutes before the scheduled walk. TURN

Sequim boys stay alive in district play Wolves beat Eatonville in consolation contest PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
TACOMA — The Sequim boys basketball team, with their backs to the wall, stayed alive in the Class 2A West Central District tournament Saturday. The Wolves, the runnersup in the Olympic League, beat Eatonville 62-52 in the loser-out consolation quarterfinals at Foss High School. Sequim advances to the consolation semifinals Monday at 2:30 p.m. at Foss in another loser-out contest. Details of Saturday’s game weren’t available by press time.
District quarterfinals White River 52, Sequim 49 LAKEWOOD — The Wolves came charging back in the second half but couldn’t quite catch the Hornets in the West Central District championship quarterfinals. The Hornets, 19-5 and ranked No. 7 in state, advanced to the semifinals while the Wolves slipped into a loser-out consolation game Saturday. White River qualified for the regional championships with the victory and can finish no worse than fifth place at district. Against White River, the Wolves fell behind 26-14 at the break but rallied back to within a point with 12 seconds to go in the fourth quarter. “We dug a little bit of a hole in the first half,” Sequim coach Greg Glasser said. “We didn’t move so well offensively. We did better in the third quarter and played with them, but we really cut into their lead in the fourth quarter but fell a little bit short. “I’m real proud of the way our guys battled back and never quit.”
Webb on fire
the game and Gabe was huge on the boards,” Glasser said. In addition, Evan Hill did a great defensive job on White River’s Billy Kiel, Glasser said. Kiel, who averages 19 points a game, was held to eight points. Chad Saylor was the top scorer for the Hornets with 15 points while Jason Tyler added 11. The final score is a little garbled. Glasser said that at the end of the game the scores did not balance and officials gave White River an extra point. He said he thought that was a little odd.

New-look Cardinals say they are ready THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
JUPITER, Fla. — So long, Albert Pujols. Happy trails, Tony La Russa. Timeout, Dave Duncan. The World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals have had plenty of upheaval. Now they enter spring training looking for a new No. 3 hitter and breaking in a rookie manager and pitching coach. Time for the newcomers to step forward. Before meeting with reporters, just steps from the closest of six practice fields at Roger Dean Stadium, Mike Matheny jokingly checked to make sure this was where La Russa usually held court for 16 springs. Armed with a cup of cof-
fee instead of facemask and shin guards, the former four-time Gold Glove catcher confessed to feeling a bit strange. “Is this the spot?” Matheny said. Two equipment bags topped by six boxes of shoes was stacked in front of Matt Holliday’s locker stall, which used to be Pujols’ spot. As for Pujols’ decision in December to take a 10-year, $254 million free-agent deal with the Angels after 11 Hall of Fame trajectory seasons with the team that drafted him? Old news. Pujols’ name never even came up during Matheny’s wide-ranging 18-minute opening media session. “It’s going to be differ-
ent,” pitcher Kyle Lohse said. “But it’s a business and we have 25 other guys who’ll pull together to win as many games as we can. That’s the way it goes. And nobody’s going to feel sorry for us.” The Cardinals anticipate a visit in the next few weeks from La Russa, who will be assisting longtime friend Jim Leyland with the Tigers. La Russa has said he won’t be looking over Matheny’s shoulder. Just like La Russa, Matheny plans on short, activity-filled days before the spring schedule starts March 5. He devoted a lot of Saturday to completing the
routine that likely won’t deviate much from the La Russa days. That’s no surprise considering Matheny played for St. Louis for four seasons and was an instructor in the organization for two more years before getting the job last November. “Guys get in and get their work done, there’s not a lot of standing around,” Matheny said. “Actually, there’s no standing around. We get our job done, we get better and then we get them out of here. That is all going to be very similar to what’s happened in the past.” Derek Lilliquist plans on sticking with Duncan’s tried and true methods in
his first year as pitching coach. He’s already battletested after filling in late last season while Duncan took a leave of absence following his wife’s surgery to remove a brain tumor, and was elevated to the fulltime position when Duncan decided he wouldn’t be back this season. “The recipe for his chocolate cake is pretty good,” Lilliquist said. “Maybe add some sprinkles here and there.” Good news for Lilliquist, who began last season as the bullpen coach, is that the rotation appears to be among the strongest in the National League. Adam Wainwright, a
20-game winner in 2010, is set to return from reconstructive elbow surgery that sidelined him all of 2011 and rejoins fellow ace Chris Carpenter. The 37-year-old Carpenter will probably be eased into things coming off a heavy workload last season, but Lilliquist said Wainwright will be on the same schedule as everybody else. The other major medical issue entering camp is utilityman Allen Craig’s surgically repaired right knee. Craig, one of the team’s surprise postseason heroes, expects to beat the initial timetable for a May return from a torn patellar tendon and is holding out hope of being ready on opening day. “It’s going to be close.”

Huskies: End home season on high note CONTINUED FROM B1 C.J. Wilcox added a key 11 points, nine of those coming in the final 7:10 to help the Huskies pull away. Solomon Hill and Jesse Perry both finished with 13 points for the Wildcats and Kyle Fogg added 11, but the Wildcats suffered their first loss since losing to Washington late last month in Tucson. The previous three matchups between the Wildcats and Huskies all came down to the final possession. Almost a year ago to the day, Derrick Williams blocked Darnell Gant’s potential go-ahead basket in the final seconds of an 87-86 Arizona win in Tucson. Washington got a measure of revenge on Isaiah Thomas’ step-back gamewinning jumper in overtime of the Pac-10 tournament title game that gave the Huskies a second straight conference tournament title.
Double-digit lead Then came their matchup a month ago in Tucson when the Huskies led by double-digits late, only to see Arizona charge back and pull within two. On the final possession, Wroten came from a help position to block Josiah Turner’s potential gametying layup for the 69-67 Washington victory.
This game appeared headed toward a similar conclusion until Wilcox got hot. Washington took an eight-point lead when Wroten windmill-slammed over Angelo Chol with 8:52 left, a dunk likely to get plenty of replays. On the next Arizona possession, Ross picked up his fourth foul and went to the bench.
3-point hoops When Ross came back with 5:39 left, the Huskies lead was up to nine thanks to consecutive 3-pointers from Wilcox, just the second and third made 3-pointers by the Huskies. Washington was 1 of 15 from behind the arc until Wilcox’s back-toback treys and he added a tip-in of Aziz N’Diaye’s miss to put the Huskies up 72-61 with five minutes left, which matched the Huskies largest lead. Arizona went nearly five minutes without a field goal and Wroten’s three-point play pushed the lead to 12, capping the Huskies eighth win in their last nine games. The Wildcats were fortunate to hang around for as long as they did. Arizona coach Sean Miller erupted off the bench and on to the floor when N’Diaye was not called for traveling when he essentially passed to himself on a stunning coast-to-coast

High School boys and girls wrestlers, boys swimmers and divers and girls gymnasts all concluded state competition Saturday. Final results weren’t available by press time but Sequim’s Dakota Hinton was the only wrestler from the North Olympic Peninsula who had advanced as far as the semifinals Saturday. Hinton was competing at 170 pounds. Hinton had pinned his first two opponents, including Deer Park’s Jason Jorgensen in the quarterfinals in 1:06, on the way into the semifinals. Four other area wrestlers made it into the quarterfinals before losing their first match. Brady Anderson of Port Angeles lost a 9-0 major decision to Quincy’s Gabe Martinez in the quarterfinals at 106 pounds while teammate Brian Cristion lost an 8-0 major decision to Jeremy Korthus of Lynden in the quarterfinals. Senior Cutter Grahn of Forks, who had lost only one match all season, lost 10-5 in the quarterfinals to nemesis Danny Barajas of
Royal, a defending state champion and three-time placer. Barajas took first in state as a junior, and fifth in both is sophomore and freshman years. Grahn was fifth as a junior and sixth as a sophomore. Joel Ward of Forks also lost in the quarterfinals, getting pinned by Asa Schwartz of Chelan in 3:18 at 195 pounds.

Luke Hyttinen takes photos of his sister, Simone Hyttinen — both of whom were visiting Forks last week from Toronto, Canada — beside pickup trucks that could have been driven by fictional Twilight character Bella Swan, in front of the Forks Visitor Information Center. The 1963 Chevy, right, is the same model pictured in the “Twilight” movie, while the 1953 model is from the book.
Signs all over Forks Twilight, closed in January after shuttering its Port Angeles branch last fall. But other businesses promote the tale.
EDITOR’S NOTE — See related story on Page A1 today. PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
FORKS — Signs of Twilight are all over Forks. Driving into town on U.S. Highway 101, it’s clear the vampire and werewolf teen romance series has had a major effect. If entering from the north, the electronic billboard at Olympic Suites Inn, 800 Olympic Drive, has a snarky “Edward Cullen never slept here,” a reference to the vampire love interest in the story author Stephenie Meyer set in Forks. A billboard on the right welcomes visitors to Twilight Country.
This sign can be found at various businesses around If approaching from the south, Forks.
the first thing visitors see is not one but two red Chevrolet pickup trucks that could have belonged to Bella Swan — Cullen’s mortal girlfriend — parked in front of the Forks Visitor Information Center. The trucks represent two visions of the pickup, said Marcia Bingham, Forks Chamber of Commerce director. The 1963 pickup is from the Twilight book, while the 1953 version is the same model pictured in the movie. The trucks draw fans such as

Many storefronts have some kind of Twilight draw, promising merchandise related to the books or movies. Several places are dedicated to Twilight, such as Twilight Central at Leppell’s Flowers & Gifts at 130 S. Spartan Ave. and day spa and clothing boutique Alice’s Closet at 130 Forks Ave., which was named for clothesobsessed vampire Alice Cullen. The store Native to Twilight at 10 Forks Ave. is described by the chamber as bringing Twilight’s Quileute character Jacob Black’s world to life. The online version of the store — which offers Native crafts from the Quileute, Hoh, Makah and Tulalip tribes — at http:// tinyurl.com/7lrv5o9 says it was “deeply inspired” by Meyer’s book series. “If you loved the romance, mystery, and Native American culture of Forks and LaPush as described in Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn, you cannot miss a visit to our shop (either virtual or in Forks),” the website says.

TV series a rumor now, but letter written to Hollywood film studio — just in case PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
FORKS — It’s a rumor, said Rosemary Colandrea, spokeswoman for the Stephenie Meyer Day Committee. “It is not a fact that we know for sure,” she said. But the group has already written letters it will mail to promote Forks just in case a television series based on Stephenie Meyer’s four-novel Twilight series materializes. If Lions Gate Entertainment elects to produce a TV series, the committee members think it should be filmed in Forks.
“We’re the Forks in the books,” Colandrea said, noting that none of the five “Twilight Saga” movies was filmed in Forks. Instead, for tax reasons, filmmakers went to Oregon and British Columbia. Where does the rumor of a television series come from? Jon Feltheimer, chief executive officer of Lions Gate Entertainment, was quoted about the possibility in a Los Angeles Times story published Jan. 15. In January, the Hollywood studio company Lions Gate Entertainment acquired Summit Entertainment, which owns the
“Twilight” movie franchise, for $412.5 million. When asked if “Twilight” could become a TV series, Feltheimer told the Times, “I would certainly hope so.” Stephenie Meyer Day Committee members know nothing beyond the Times interview, Colandrea said. But they want to be prepared. “We have letters that are already written if this does come to be,” she said. Such an effort could be aided by the state Legislature if a bill approved by the state Senate on Tuesday makes it through
the House and is signed into law. The legislation would bring back the tax credits of the state’s film incentive program, which expired in July after the state House failed to vote on the issue. The program would offer film companies a 30 percent rebate off the amount of money spent in the state. Film industry officials warned that Washington could lose out on film productions because the state can’t compete with incentives already existing in Vancouver, B.C., and Oregon, where the “Twilight Saga” films were made.

Music Matters license plates can be purchased by any Washington state vehicle owner. They are available for passenger vehicles, trailers and motorcycles, and may be transferred from vehicle to vehicle. A portion of proceeds

Financial aid help PORT HADLOCK â€” The Jefferson Education Center in Port Hadlock has told those planning to attend college or vocational schools after July 1 that now is a good time to complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This application may require information from oneâ€™s 2011 federal income
tax return, so it is smart to file tax returns early and then complete the FAFSA form so that the college, university or vocational school has sufficient time to process the paperwork to ensure financial aid is in place for the next fiscal year, which begins July 1. Those needing assistance filing the FAFSA form should phone Matt Lyons at the center at 360379-4034 for an appointment to prepare the application. There is no charge for these services, and appointments normally take about 30 minutes. The center, 209 W. Patison St., Suite A, is open Mondays through Thursdays for appointments or walk-ins.

Hummingbird house needs perfect place IT ISN’T TOO early to talk about birdhouses. The earlier the better, especially if you are talking about hummingbird houses. Yes, birdhouses for hummingbirds. This subject has fascinated me ever since I saw an advertisement in Horticulture magazine. Being a good Yankee, I looked at the picture with a lot of skepticism. I still think it sounds too good to be true. Just the same, I’ve sent off my order for two of them. Now I need to find the perfect place to install them. That’s the biggest challenge for any birdhouse. Dan True and his wife, Diane, are the designers and builders of the hummingbird house. Dan True has written three books on the subjects of hummingbirds and eagles. A former flight instructor, meteorologist and nature photographer, True’s aeronautical skills
BIRD WATCH Joan Carson
aided him in discovering previously unknown elements in the lives of both birds. The late Roger Tory Peterson, “Dean of Birdwatchers,” considered him an “ace photogra-
pher.” He and his wife now live in Clovis, N.M., where the opportunity to observe and photograph hummingbirds is excellent.
Platform for nest The hummingbird house designed by True is actually a platform and resembles several sticks fastened together so as to allow a nest to be built on them. This description is
an oversimplification. The small structure looks to be well-built and sturdy. True explains: “Our factory is our garage. I bend, drill and weld the platform’s foundation. “Diane paints and puts on the finishing touches before they are boxed.” Two nesting platforms are packed per box because “attracting a hummingbird to nest is a lot like fishing . . . the more hooks you have in the water, the better your chance for success.” During his study and research on nesting hummingbirds, True worked with one of his neighbors whose ranch sounds like a hummingbird hangout. Dave Dunnigan knew from experience that hummingbirds choose their nest sites so as to be protected from the strong winds that sweep through the region. True believes that the more wind and rain you have during the nesting season, the better these hummingbird houses work. I can relate to that.
Every spring when we have wind and rain, I think about the female hummingbirds sitting somewhere on their nests trying to protect their eggs or young. The hummingbird house kit I have ordered comes with: two nesting platforms, two foamy maple leaf “roofs,” two fluffs of cotton for nesting material, two mounting screws and instructions for assembling the platforms. Acquiring these nesting platforms is the easy part. We get a lot of wind where we live.
Windy and watery It sweeps in from the water when the direction is southerly. Now the hunt begins. Where are those protected, hidden areas that are out of the wind and the rain? Porches, patios, house eaves and open tool sheds yielded good nesting success for the Trues and their friend Dunnigan. I think the biggest challenge
will be locating the platform where predators aren’t able to find it. Squirrels and birds like jays and crows could be a big problem. The female Anna’s hummingbirds begin choosing their nest sites in February. They will be gathering nesting materials, so getting this nesting platform sited as soon as possible is important. If this experiment is successful, you will hear more on this subject. I’m looking forward to trying something new for the birds in our yard. If you would like to see more information and photographs, there is an excellent website to check out, www.hummingbirdhouse.com.

Ready tools for real work in coming weeks AS USUAL, THIS year’s Peninsula Daily News Garden Bus was a real hoot. But how could it not be, going to the opening day of the Northwest Flower and Garden Show in Seattle, the nation’s second-largest flower show? The fragrance of flowers tickles your senses and permeates the entire show as you move about from display to vendor. Every year, there is always a hot item to have, and this year didn’t disappoint. For only $25, one could purchase a very cool Middle Ages-style pitchfork made of an espaliered apple tree and perfectly forming an all-inone-piece (i.e., single-branch) wooden fork 7 feet long and beautifully stained in a semi-gloss finish. Five alone came home to the North Olympic Peninsula on the Garden Bus. Sweet peas, statuary and raised planted kits — along with orchids, bushes, peonies and lilies — were loaded into the Garden Bus. There was lawn art and pole saws as well as shovels, seed, perennials and garden books stowed in the bus’ cargo hold. The vendors, display artists, conference workers, judges, attendees and lecturers all seemed very optimistic. But that makes sense. Our bus sold out early, pre-
A GROWING CONCERN sales for garden May show tickets were brisk, and there was an increase in big displays. So for our industry, at least, we seem to be ready, able and chomping at the bit to go out and garden this year. With that said, let us leave the flower show and jump right into your garden because it is already Feb. 19. We are at the beginning of late winter. But in your yard, it already is beginning to look like early spring. By now, your fruit trees should be pruned or well on their way to being finished.

Dormant oil applications should be the next item on your orchard and fine woody ornamental to-do list. Dormant oil spray is a great way to kill by smothering overwintering pests while not harming birds, bees or your beloved furry critters.

Participants on the Peninsula Daily News’ 11th annual Garden Bus hold up a $900 check to the PDN’s Peninsula Home Fund from proceeds from the Northwest Flower and Garden Show tour earlier this month. Forty-four people filled the bus and enjoyed a day in Seattle at the nation’s second-largest flower show, raising $350 more than last year’s bus tour. When spraying these highly refined oils, always use 96 percent or greater purity oils (I like 98 percent). A backpack sprayer is by far the best tool and the only one I recommend — that or hire it out to a spray company. Wait for a day with no rain (I like 36-40 hours or more) and with temperatures in the high 30s, preferably the 40s (the higher the temps, the better), then respray a week to 10 days later. Use lukewarm water to mix the solution and add 3-5 drops (no more!) of dish soap

to help the oil stick. And never ever spray oil on trees whose buds or leaves are just starting to open. Be on the lookout for slugs and mice, for they will destroy your hostas, lilies, columbine, lupine, delphinium, tulips and crocus. Take appropriate actions today, and do not forget the weeds. Survey all your tools now for there will soon be a call to arms, and they all will need to fall in line. Sharpen them lightly, and oil shovel blades, saws, pruners, hoes, trowels, lop-
pers and your mower. Inspect all handles for cracks and repair when needed, or just tighten down all bolts, screws and nuts. Make sure you have all the appropriate work gloves, knee pads, tarps, ladders and buckets, or go out and buy new ones, which are on sale this week. Inspect the hoses to make sure they do not leak or that the fittings are in proper working order, then repair or replace as needed. How about the wheel barrel or garden cart? Are they in good working order?

International Coin Collectors are in Town to Purchase All Types of Coins By KEN MCINTOSH STAFF WRITER
ICCA will be placing ads in newspapers, radio and running television spots this week asking people to bring in any old silver and gold coins made before 1970. Those that do bring in their coins will be able to speak with collectors one on one and have their coins looked at by a specialist. With the help of these ICCA members, offers will be made to those that have coins made before 1970. Offers will be made based on silver or gold content and the rarity of the coins. All coins made before 1970 will be examined and purchased including gold coins, silver coins, silver dollars, all types of nickels and pennies. Those that decide to sell their coins will be paid on the spot. If you are like a lot of people, you might have a few old coins or even a coffee can full lying around. If you have ever wondered what they are worth, now might be your chance to find out and even sell them if you choose. They could be worth a lot according to the International Coin Collectors Association, also known as ICCA. Collectors will pay a fortune for some coins and currency for their collections. If they are rare enough, one coin could be worth over $100,000 according to Eric Helms coin collector and ICCA member. One ultra rare dime, an 1894S Barber, sold for a record $1.9 million to a collector in July of 2007. While that is an extreme example, many rare and valuable coins are stashed away in dresser drawers or lock boxes around the country. The ICCA and its collector members have organized a traveling event in search of all types of coins and currency. “Even common coins can be worth a significant amount due to the high price of silver and gold,” says Helms. Washington quarters and Roosevelt dimes and worth many times their face value. Recent silver markets have driven the price up on even common coins made of silver. Helms explains, “All half dollars, quarter and dimes made before 1970 contain 90% silver and are sought after any time silver prices rise. Right now it’s a sellers market.”
The rarest coins these collectors are looking for include $20, $10, $5 and $2 1/2 gold coins and any coin made before 1850. These coins always bring big premiums according to the ICCA. Silver dollars are also very sought after nowadays. Other types of items the ICCA will be purchasing during this event include U.S. currency, gold bullion, investment gold, silver bars, silver rounds, proof sets, etc. Even foreign coins are sought after and will be purchased. Also, at this event anyone can sell their gold jewelry, dental gold or anything made of gold on the spot. Bring anything you think might be gold and the collectors will examine, test and price it for free. If you decide to sell you will be paid on the spot – it has been an unknown fact that coin dealers have always paid more for jewelry and scrap gold than other jewelers and pawn brokers. So, whether you have one coin you think might be valuable or a large collection you recently inherited, you can talk to these collectors for free and if your lucky you may have a rarity worth thousands. Either way, there is nothing to lose and it sounds like fun!

Smoking danger Treats trick to getting dog to behave itself to girlfriend, son DEAR ABBY: â€œDwayne,â€? my boyfriend of eight years, insists on smoking in his bedroom. In our last apartment, heâ€™d fall asleep with a lighted cigarette and ended up burning holes in our couch, blankets and pillows as well as the carpet. When we moved, Dwayne assured me he had stopped, but a month ago, I noticed his blanket and mattress have burn holes and so does the carpet by his bed. We live together with our 6-year-old son and, needless to say, Iâ€™m scared to death Dwayne will burn this place down. I have talked to him about it numerous times. All he does is yell and say it wonâ€™t happen because cigarettes are â€œsafer now.â€? I have discussed this with our landlord to no avail. I thought about calling social services, but I donâ€™t want to get him in trouble. I could really use some good advice. Scared for My Life in Milwaukee Dear Scared: Because Dwayne is unwilling to be more responsible, itâ€™s time to consider your sonâ€™s safety and your own. Your boyfriend is not only addicted to tobacco, he also is misguided. If cigarettes were â€œsafer now,â€? there wouldnâ€™t be burn holes in his bedding and the area surrounding where he sleeps. If moving isnâ€™t feasible, at least make sure there are working smoke detectors in your apartment and an extra one outside Dwayneâ€™s bedroom door. Frankly, it would be healthier for you and the boy if Dwayne didnâ€™t smoke at all in your apartment because the Environmental Protection Agency has classified secondhand smoke as a Group A carcinogen.

BRIDGET MOORE July 2, 1927 January 26, 2012 After decades of service to the Lord on this Earth, Bridget Moore is now serving God in his heaven. Graciously and courageously accepting her cancer, she passed from this world on January 26, 2012, at her son’s home in Sacramento, California, with her children by her side. Minnie Dorothea Bridget Byrne was born in Hampstead, London, to Henry James and Madeline (Blood-Smyth) Byrne on July 2, 1927. Over the next 84 years, Bridget led a rich and varied life full of family, travel and adventure. Her brother, Arthur Neptune John Byrne, was born in 1929. As a child, Bridget was educated in a small Quaker school in London. During World War II, she and her schoolmates were relocated to the country,
Mrs. Moore where they spent five years at the 16th-century ancestral home of Sir John Thynne, now known as Longleat, the home of the Marquis de Bath. After school, she joined the British Foreign Office and worked for MI6. Stationed in Germany for two years after the war, Bridget worked in the coding/decoding section and learned to
ski in the Swiss Alps. Upon returning to London, she married Derek Michael Ellis Anson. Derek found work in America, and they moved with their young family, now with a son and daughter, to a small apartment in Pelham, New York. After two years, the family relocated to their first home in Ridgefield, Connecticut. Following her divorce in 1963, Bridget became a working single mother, helping to support her family. In 1967, she married Donald Clark Moore and began an adventure that would last 38 years until Don’s death in 2002. Soon after their marriage, the family moved to a farm in La Junta, Colorado. These were Bridget’s happiest years. She loved being outdoors, driving a tractor, caring for the livestock, attending her children’s high school football games and taking classes at Otero
Junior College, where Don was the dean of faculty. In 1976, after their children had left home, Bridget and Don moved to Grand Junction, Colorado, where Don had taken a job with Bendix Corporation. Bridget became an entrepreneur, running her own successful vending machine business. Hearing a call to service as missionaries, they left Colorado for Malawi, Africa, leaving all they owned and their dog in the States. For the next two years, they taught farming, English, irrigation and crop management to the local people in Malawi. It was an experience rich in discovery, challenges and rewards. Completing their service, they returned to the U.S. to reclaim their dog and moved to Memphis, Tennessee, where Don taught engineering at Christian Brothers University and where Bridget completed her undergraduate degree

in psychology and sociology. She then became a math teacher at Bishop Byrne High School. Escaping the heat and humidity, they moved to Brookings, South Dakota, to teach at South Dakota State University. While in South Dakota, Bridget began the journey that would eventually take her to the priesthood of the Episcopal church in 1996. She spent many happy hours traveling to small communities like Preston in De Smet, South Dakota, and ministering to its people. When they finally retired, Bridget and Don moved to Sequim and built a home. Bridget became very involved at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, serving as an assistant priest and working in many ministries, most recently with the Little Sisters of St. Clare. She was active in the Democratic Party, working tirelessly for her candidates.
Bridget gave of herself freely and always put others first. She loved her friends dearly and was devoted to her family. Bridget loved her dogs, most recently her little Poppy. She is survived by her two children, William and Sarah; three stepchildren, Ann, Beth and James; and seven grandchildren, Brynn, Emily, Tess, Katie, Caroline, Adriana and Alejandra. Bridget was a special and loving mom and grandmother, a wonderful friend and an amazing lady. We will all miss her very much. Memorial services will be held at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 525 North Fifth Avenue, in Sequim on Thursday, February 23, 2012, at 2 p.m., with a reception following in the Parish Hall hosted by St. Luke’s. In lieu of flowers, please send donations in her name to Oxfam America at www. oxfamamerica.org.
determination and tenacity. She often said, “I’m too busy to die right now.” Always graceful in her interactions with others, she was strong, patient, optimistic and resilient. Annette is survived by her husband, William Bill Johnston; her daughters, Jennifer Johnston and Julie Johnston Martinez and her children, Marilisa and William; her brother, Roger Neidinger, and wife Nancy; brother-in-law Robert Johnston and his wife, Dianne, all of Sequim; many cousins in the Midwest; and a host of bereft friends. Heartfelt gratitude to
Donna Huswick, who spent the last three weeks of Annette’s life caring for her. We shall miss her and hold her always in our hearts. Memory eternal, dear one! Cremation by LindePrice Funeral Service. A celebration-of-life service will be held at Eastern Hills Community Church, 91 Savannah Lane, Sequim, on Saturday, February 25, 2012, at noon, with a reception to follow.

Pickle juice can melt away pain from heartburn, reflux Q. Recently, I had heartburn that was painful but not devastating. This doesnâ€™t happen to me often, so I had no antacids. Instead, I planned to wait until the burning stopped on its own. I took a sip (no more than a tablespoon) of pickle juice (from sweet pickle sandwich slices), and to my amazement, the pain went away instantly and didnâ€™t recur. A week or so later, I got heartburn again. This time, the only pickles in the house were dill spears, but once again, a small sip of juice gave me immediate lasting relief. Iâ€™ve only tried this twice, but Iâ€™ll never reach for antacids again if I can get some pickle juice. Iâ€™ve never heard of this before. Once could be a fluke, but twice? Have you ever heard of this? A. Pickle juice seems like the last thing you would want to swallow if you had heartburn. Nevertheless, we have heard from many readers that vinegar, the main ingredient in pickle juice,

helps ease indigestion. Here is just one story: â€œI am extremely skeptical of alternative medicine and home remedies, perhaps because I taught human physiology for 25 years. â€œNevertheless, after having little success with drugs, I tried apple-cider vinegar in water for my acid reflux. â€œIt has been much more effective than any of the standard medications.â€?
Beta blockers issue Q. My very active mother visited her doctor for a routine checkup several months ago. He diagnosed her with hypertension and
started her on atenolol and amlodipine. Since then, she has slipped dramatically. She has no energy and has lost her enthusiasm for activities she loved. Her ankles have swollen so much, she can no longer get her feet into nice shoes. Mom also is complaining about breathing problems and joint pain for the first time and thinks the medicine is responsible. Most worrisome for her is a drastic loss of hair during the past several weeks. Could the drugs be doing all this? If so, is there a natural way for her to lower her blood pressure safely? A. Your motherâ€™s suspicions may have some validity. Beta blockers like atenolol, metoprolol and propranolol may cause fatigue, hair loss, asthma and joint pain. Physicians rarely prescribe such medications as first-line blood pressure treatment. Amlodipine can cause fluid retention, which may be contributing to her swollen ankles. Fatigue and dizziness also are common side effects. We are sending you our â€œGuide to Blood Pressure

International students pay top dollar at UW BY TAMAR LEWIN THE NEW YORK TIMES
SEATTLE — This is the University of Washington’s new math — 18 percent of its freshmen come from abroad, most from China. Each pays tuition of $28,059, about three times as much as students from Washington state. And that, according to the dean of admissions, is how low-income Washingtonians — more than a quarter of the class — get a free ride. With state financing slashed by more than half in the past three years, university officials decided to pull back on admissions offers to Washington residents
and increase them to students overseas. That has rankled some local politicians and parents, a few of whom have even asked UW President Michael K. Young whether their children could get in if they paid nonresident tuition.
Key to the future “It does appeal to me a little,” he said. There is a widespread belief in Washington that internationalization is the key to the future, and Young said he was not at all bothered that there were now more students from other countries than from other states.
Out-of-state students pay the same tuition as foreign students. “Is there any advantage to our taking a kid from California versus a kid from China?” he said. “You’d have to convince me, because the world isn’t divided the way it used to be.” If the university’s reliance on full-freight Chinese students to balance the budget echoes the nation’s dependence on China as the largest holder of American debt, well, said the dean of admissions, Philip A. Ballinger, “this is a way of getting some of that money back.” TURN

FDA: 400 lipsticks have trace amounts of lead PENINSULA DAILY NEWS NEWS SOURCES
WASHINGTON â€” A new federal analysis shows that 400 shades of popular lipstick contained trace amounts of lead. And it has worsened an ongoing dispute between regulators and consumer activists over how much lead is safe in cosmetics. Five lipsticks made by Lâ€™Oreal and Maybelline, owned by Lâ€™Oreal USA, ranked among the top 10 most contaminated of the cosmetics, according to testing by the Food and Drug Administration. Two Cover Girl and two NARS lipsticks also landed in the top 10, as did one made by Stargazer. For years, the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics has been pushing the government to set limits for lead levels in lipstick. The FDA has resisted, insisting that the amounts detected in various rounds of testing do not pose safety risks. But in a letter to the agency this month, the consumer group said that federal regulators have no scientific basis for this conclusion, and it pressed the government to take action.
Two-decade flap Reports of lead in lipstick date to the 1990s and have resurfaced periodically since then. In 2007, the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics tested 33 red lipsticks and found that two-thirds of them contained lead â€” and that onethird exceeded the FDAâ€™s limit for lead in candy. The FDA followed up in 2008 with its own tests on 20 lipsticks and expanded its analysis to include 400 lipstick shades in the most recent study. But the agency, which posted its latest findings on its website in December, said that comparing lipstick to candy is unfair. â€œIt is not scientifically valid to equate the risk to consumers presented by lead levels in candy, a product intended for ingestion, with that associated with lead levels in lipstick, a
times the level found in the least-contaminated product in the recent report, the group wrote in a letter to the agency this month. The least-contaminated product â€” Wet â€™nâ€™ Wild Mega Mixers Lip Balm â€” was also the least expensive, the group said in a separate statement, â€œdemonstrating that price is not an indicator of good manufacturing practices.â€? The group cited federal research that concluded that thereâ€™s no safe level of lead exposure for children, and experts stressed the need to shield children and pregnant women from exposure. â€œLead builds in the body over time, and lead-containing lipstick applied several times a day, every day, can add up to significant expoBEBETO MATTHEWS/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS sure levels,â€?

Obama takes GOP heat on possible nuclear force cuts PENINSULA DAILY NEWS NEWS SOURCES
WASHINGTON â€” The Obama administrationâ€™s consideration of severe cuts in nuclear weapons has generated a flurry of GOP criticism â€” â€œreckless lunacyâ€? in the words of Arizona Rep. Trent Franks. No commander in chief has cut the nuclear force to as low a number as Obama might under a set of options that his administration is considering now.
One option is to cut the number of deployed longrange weapons to a range of 1,000 to 1,100; a second would drop it to between 700 and 800; a third is to go down to between 300 and 400. That compares with the 1,550 warhead limit set by a U.S.-Russia arms pact, known as the New START treaty, which took effect one year ago. Rep. Michael Turner, R-Ohio, said Friday that he would be aghast at the notion of deep cuts to the nuclear

force. â€œNever before has a president done something like this,â€? Turner said. â€œYes, presidents since Truman have updated the nationâ€™s nuclear war plan. â€œBut I cannot find a precedent for a president to tell the national security team that, regardless of the nuclear weapons modernization programs of China, Russia, Pakistan, North Korea and others, the U.S. should plan to reduce to as low as 300 nuclear weapons.â€? Those three options, first reported by The Associated Press on Tuesday, have not yet been presented to Obama for a decision. James Miller, the Pentagon official who has led a study of U.S. strategic
nuclear weapons requirements, said Wednesday that another option is to stick to the 1,550 limit. But Miller also suggested that getting below 1,500 is more likely. Miller told a nuclear deterrence symposium that he believes the U.S. can strengthen deterrence and maintain its security obligations to allies, while reducing the risks of the spread of nuclear technologies and arms, with a smaller nuclear force. It would be a major surprise if Obama chose to cut to 300 deployed warheads, not least because it seems highly unlikely that the Russians would agree to anything nearly that low.

Former NFL players sue league over concussions THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW ORLEANS â€” Nearly a dozen former NFL players living in Louisiana have sued the NFL, the latest players to accuse the league of failing to protect players from the risks associated with concussions. Several former New Orleans Saints players, including John Fourcade, are among the 11 ex-players named as plaintiffs in the class-action lawsuit filed Friday in federal court in New Orleans. The lawsuit says each of them has developed mental or physical problems from concussions or concussionlike symptoms. Several similar suits blaming the NFL for concussion-related dementia and brain disease already have been consolidated in Philadelphia. James Dugan, a lawyer for the former players from Louisiana, said he expects the case to be transferred to Philadelphia within a month. The NFL has vowed to vigorously defend itself against the suits. Football helmet manufacturer Riddell Inc. also is named as a defendant in the lawsuit filed in New Orleans.
The lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages, accuses the NFL of ignoring playersâ€™ concussion risks for years â€œdespite overwhelming medical evidence that on-field concussions led directly to brain injuries and frequently had tragic repercussions for retired players.â€? â€œWanting their players on the field instead of training tables, and in an attempt to protect a multibillion dollar business, the NFL has purposefully attempted to obfuscate the issue and has repeatedly refuted the connection between concussions and brain injury to the disgust of Congress, which has blasted the NFLâ€™s handling of the issue on multiple occasions,â€? the lawsuit says. A 2000 survey of more than 1,000 former NFL players found that more than 60 percent had suffered at least one concussion, while 26 percent had suffered three or more during their careers, according to the lawsuit. â€œThose who had sustained concussions reported more problems with memory, concentration, speech impediments, headaches and other neurological problems than those who had not been concussed,â€? the suit says.

Abroad: Demographics CONTINUED FROM D1 By the reckoning of the Institute of International Education, foreign students in the United States contribute about $21 billion a year to the national economy, including $463 million here in Washington state. But the influx affects more than just the bottom line — campus culture, too, is changing.
Demographic shifts While the University of Washington’s demographic shifts have been sharper and faster — international students were 2 percent of the freshmen in 2006 — similar changes are under way at flagship public universities across the nation. Illinois, Indiana, Iowa and University of California campuses in Berkeley and Los Angeles all had at least 10 percent foreign freshmen this academic year, more than twice that of five years ago. And at top private schools including Columbia University, Boston University and the University of Pennsylvania, at least 15 percent of this year’s freshmen are from other countries. All told, the number of undergraduates from China alone has soared to 57,000 from 10,000 five years ago.
11% from China At the University of Washington, 11 percent of the nearly 5,800 freshmen are from China. A few places have begun to charge international students additional fees besides tuition. At Purdue University, it was $1,000 this year and will double next year; engineering undergraduates at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign had to pay a $2,500 surcharge this year. “We’re in something akin to the gold rush, a frontierstyle environment where colleges and universities, like prospectors in the 1800s, realize that there is gold out there,” said David Hawkins, the director of public policy at the National Association for College Admission Counseling. “While it’s the admissions offices butting up against the issues most right now, every department after them, every faculty member who comes into contact with international students, is going to have to recalibrate as institutions become more international. I see a cascading list of challenges.” They have already begun at the University of Washington.
“Morally, I feel the university should accept in-state students first, then other American students, then international students.” FARHEEN SIDDIQUI freshman from Renton Orientation leaders last fall had to explain, repeatedly, the rigorous campus recycling practices, reinforce no-smoking rules and, at the make-your-own-sundae bar, help people get the hang of the whipped-cream cans. But there are deeper issues, like how much latitude professors should give in written assignments.
Written assignments “We recognize that people from other countries often speak with an accent,” said John Webster, director of writing at the university’s College of Arts and Science. “If we’re truly going to be a global university, which I think is a terrific thing, we have to recognize that they may write with an accent as well.” For example, because Mandarin has one pronunciation for “he,” “she” and “it” and nothing like “a” or “the,” many Chinese speakers struggle with pronouns and articles. And English verb forms, like past participles, gerunds and infinitives, can be difficult to master, since Chinese verbs are unchanging. Given that Chinese students’ writing will be “accented” for years, Webster said he believes that professors should focus less on trying to make their English technically correct and more on making their essays understandable and interesting. But he knows this could be a controversial issue, reminiscent of the Ebonics debate decades ago.
awry when local high achievers, even valedictorians, are rejected by the campuses they have grown up aspiring to. “My constituents want a slot for their kid,” said state Sen. Reuven Carlyle, D-Seattle. “I hear it at the grocery store every day — and I’ve got four young kids myself, so I get it. “We are struggling with capacity, access and affordability,” he said. “But international engagement is part of our state’s DNA. We have a special economic and social relationship with China, and I am happy to have so many Chinese students at the university.” Still, Jim Allen, a counselor at Inglemoor High School in Kenmore, said: “Families are frustrated. There aren’t as many private colleges here as in the East, and a lot of families expect their children to go to UW.”
Surprise applications Unlike many other state universities, the University of Washington did no overseas recruiting before this academic year, when it staged recruiting tours in several countries. So the rapid growth in international applications — to more than 6,000 this year from 1,541 in 2007, with China by far the largest source — was something of a surprise. Last spring, another surprise was the percentage who accepted offers of admission: 42 percent decided to enroll, up from 35 percent the previous year. “As best I can make out, it’s just word of mouth,” said Ballinger, the admissions dean. “We’re well-known in China, we’re highly rated on the Shanghai rankings, and we have a lot of contacts.” Applications from abroad present some special challenges. Because the SAT is not given in mainland China, the university does not require international students to take it. Although it does not pay recruiting agents, Ballinger said he knew many applicants hired them, so the university does not consider Chinese applicants’ personal essays or recommendations. Some in-state students said they had trouble knowing what to make of the fact that international students, on the one hand, help underwrite financial aid, and, on the other, take up seats that might have gone to their high school classmates.

SEATTLE — A luxury undercover boat purchased with fines collected from fishermen was used by federal fishery police to visit dockside restaurants with friends, as a venue for onboard barbecues and for high-speed “pleasure cruising,” according to federal documents. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration bought the 35-foot boat for about $300,000, so its law enforcement officers based in Seattle could covertly monitor whether whale watch boats in Puget Sound were harassing the animals. But the documents indicate the boat was rarely used for official business. “It was a fishermenfunded party boat for bureaucrats,” U.S. Sen. Scott Brown, R--Mass., said on the Senate floor Friday. Brown’s office obtained the U.S. Commerce Department’s Inspector General’s review of the purchase after a Freedom of Information Act request. The boat’s purchase was first disclosed in July 2010, as part of an audit by the
inspector general on how the millions in fines paid by fishermen were being spent. The audit uncovered broad mismanagement of the fines, which can reach six figures. NOAA has since reformed how the fines are monitored and handled. On Friday, Brown said the luxury boat was a symbol of NOAA’s damaged relationship with fishermen and again asked President Obama to fire NOAA chief Jane Lubchenco. NOAA said “appropriate action” has or will be taken against employees involved, though it didn’t release details, citing privacy rules. The boat will be offered to other government agencies and put up for sale if there are no takers. The agency added it has fixed problems found by the inspector general by overhauling its enforcement program with new leadership, policies to ensure consistent enforcement practices nationwide and better accounting and oversight. NOAA’s law enforcement office is charged with enforcing the nation’s complicated
fisheries laws, which regulate, for example, where and with what gear fishermen can fish. The boat was purchased in February 2008, before Lubchenco was appointed to lead NOAA. It was to blend in with whale watch boats and ensure they didn’t break federal rules by moving within 100 yards of the whales, according to the documents. A brochure for the boat, a Boston Whaler Model 345 Conquest, says it holds 14 people and its “luxurious interior” includes a flat screen television, island bed and hardwood cabin flooring. The report said after the boat’s June 2008 launch in Seattle, a NOAA enforcement agent — whose name was redacted — took his wife and friend to a restaurant in Bremerton, despite rules barring non-federal employee from being on board.

Oil rose to near $103 a barrel Friday in Asia, and benchmark U.S. crude was up 93 cents to $103.24 per barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The latter traded at about $96 a barrel at the first of this month. Several refineries have been mothballed in recent months, Kloza said, and some of those refineries “represented the key to a smooth spring transition from winter-to-spring gasoline.” The annual change in gasoline formulas is mandated by pollution-fighting regulations. Some cities, including Los Angeles and New York, already are closing in on $4 a gallon, said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy.com, a website that tracks gasoline prices.

Takeover of Central Park? Alaskaâ€™s idea Stateâ€™s legislators ask U.S. to make it wilderness area BY ANDY NEWMAN THE NEW YORK TIMES
NEW YORK â€” In the interest of preserving an already-compromised sliver of urban wilderness, state legislators are asking the federal government to take over New York Cityâ€™s Central Park. State legislators in Alaska, that is. Annoyed with outsidersâ€™ meddling with the right to drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, state Rep. Kyle Johansen, Republican of Ketchikan, introduced a resolution in Juneau last month that gives the statesrights-depriving Eastern elites a taste of their own medicine.
â€˜Wilderness areaâ€™ It urges the federal government to â€œdeclare Central Park to be a wilderness area and to prohibit any further improvement or development of Central Park unless authorized by an act of Congress.â€? Many of Johansenâ€™s colleagues immediately signed on as co-sponsors, including the speaker of the House. The resolution, first noted on the East Coast by the neighborhood newspaper West Side Rag, is primarily a piece of political satire, Johansen said, but one with a solid basis in history. â€œWhat Iâ€™m trying to accomplish,â€? he said, â€œis to basically make a point of the hypocrisy of â€” and donâ€™t take offense â€” those East Coast folks who write a lot of checks to shut down Alaska, while in their own backyard,
Manhattan has been turned from a pristine wild island supporting an amazing Muir web of life to having only Central Park left as a green belt. â€œAnd even Central Park has been radically changed.â€?
â€œWhat Iâ€™m trying to accomplish,â€? he said, â€œis to basically make a point of the hypocrisy of â€” and donâ€™t take offense â€” those East Coast folks who write a lot of checks to shut down Alaska . . .â€? REP. KYLE JOHANSEN R-Ketchikan, Alaska
Before Hudson The resolution notes that before Henry Hudson arrived in 1609, Manhattan was â€œa remarkably diverse and natural landscape of hills, valleys, forests, fields,â€? marshes, beaches, ponds and streams that supported populations of gray wolf, elk, black bear and mountain lion. Since then, the measure says, â€œthe unrestrained development of buildings, highways and urban sprawl on Manhattan has destroyed habitat, displaced indigenous peoples and disrupted [ecosystems].â€? Central Park makes up 6 percent of Manhattan; the area that pro-drilling lawmakers seek to open to oil exploration makes up 8 percent of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Ergo, if one landscape is worthy of federal protection, why not the other? Though extractive industries are not allowed to operate in Central Park â€” unless you count the overpriced organic hot-dog vendor near the skating rink â€” the landscape has indeed been repeatedly disfigured over the years by zoos, faux Gothic castles and whatnot. But Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe said that â€œthe premise that Central Park is not as protected
as a federal property in Alaska is not true.â€? Among other things, the park falls under the Public Trust Doctrine, which bars use of parks for any nonrecreation purpose without THE ASSOCIATED PRESS (2) approval from the state New Yorkâ€™s Central Park, shown above from the air, is likened â€” tongueLegislature.

A 1978 study rejected the idea. While it would bring in needed money and personnel, the studyâ€™s authors wrote, federalization would put the park in the hands of federal civil servants â€œwho would not feel compelled to be responsive to local wishes concerning usage.â€?

Congress sends tax cut to Obama President expected to sign soon THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — Congress swiftly approved legislation Friday renewing a payroll tax cut for 160 million American workers and jobless benefits for millions more, backing the main items on President Barack Obama’s jobs agenda in a rare burst of Washington bipartisanship. The Senate approved the $143 billion measure on a 60-36 vote minutes after the House approved it by a sweeping 293-132 vote. Obama is expected to sign it shortly after returning from a West Coast fundraising swing. On Friday in an appearance at the Boeing factory in Everett, north of Seattle, Obama gave lawmakers a verbal fist bump. “It is amazing what happens when Congress focuses on doing the right thing instead of just playing politics,” Obama said. “This was a good example, and Congress should take pride in it.” In fact, Obama’s jobs agenda had politics woven into it, including campaignstyle rallies and news coverage that — along with the GOP presidential primary — have coincided with a boost in his poll numbers.
Paycheck continuance Under the bill, workers would continue to receive a 2 percentage point increase in their paychecks, and people out of work for more than six months would keep jobless benefits averaging about $300 a week, steps that Obama says will help support a fragile recovery from the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression. It would also head off a steep cut in reimbursements for physicians who treat Medicare patients. The tax cuts, jobless coverage and higher doctors’ payments would all continue through 2012. Passage of the legislation hands Obama a victory over objections from many Republicans who oppose it but were eager to wipe the issue from the election-year agenda. It also clears away a political headache for House Republicans, who blocked a two-month extension of the tax cut and jobless coverage in late December, only to retreat quickly under a buzz saw of opposition from conservative and GOP leaders from around the country.
Payroll tax cut at a glance CONGRESS VOTED AND sent to President Barack Obama a $144 billion package that extends three major programs through the end of the year: a 2 percentage-point reduction in the Social Security payroll tax, federal unemployment benefits for the long-time unemployed and avoidance of a 27 percent cut in reimbursements for doctors treating Medicare patients. A look at how the package would be financed: ■ There would be no cuts in other programs to pay for the $100 billion cost of extending the payroll tax cut. ■ Half of the unemployment benefit extension would be paid for by asking new federal employees to contribute an additional 2.3 percent into their defined benefit plans. The other half would come from giving the Federal Communications Commission the authority to pay TV broadcasters for underutilized broadcast spectrums and auction that off to wireless companies. That is expected to raise $25 billion, of which $7 billion in auction proceeds and spectrum worth $2.75 billion would go to a new first responder network for police, firefighters and other public safety officials. The broadcast spectrum sales are expected to lead to faster downloads for smartphones, iPads and other mobile devices. The House Energy and Commerce Committee said unlicensed spectrum has been a source of innovation, enabling new forms of communication like WiFi and Bluetooth. ■ The approximately $20 billion cost of preventing payment cuts to Medicare doctors would be paid for with cuts in other areas of health care. All these cuts and savings would be achieved from 2012 through 2022. ■ $2.5 billion would come from a health care law fund directed to Louisiana to make up for Medicaid money it lost because of the influx of federal dollars after Hurricane Katrina. ■ $4.1 billion from reducing Medicaid payments to hospitals with a disproportionate share of uninsured patients. President Barack Obama sought similar cuts in his proposed 2013 budget. ■ $5 billion would be cut from a 10-year, $15 billion program included in the 2010 health care law, promoted by Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, that was aimed at boosting prevention and public health programs. ■ $2.7 billion saved by reducing payment rates for clinical laboratory services by 2 percent in 2013. ■ $6.9 billion saved by reducing bad debt payments. Currently Medicare reimburses hospitals and skilled nursing facilities for 70 percent of costsharing that patients are unable or unwilling to pay. Bad debt reimbursements would be phased down to 65 percent in the 2013 budget year. Obama had also recommended reductions in these payments. The Associated Press

Sales-tax deductions not extended in deal PENINSULA DAILY NEWS NEW SOURCES
WASHINGTON — The sales-tax deductions for residents of Washington and other states without individual income taxes apparently will not be extended for 2012. The latest deal on a payroll-tax holiday, hammered out last week by a House-Senate conference committee, apparently does not include an agreement to extend salestax deductions and a host of other tax breaks. It leaves unsettled whether Washington state residents will be able to write off taxes on purchases made this year.
Stuck in limbo? And if history is any guide, residents of Washington and seven other states could be stuck in limbo for a while. Ever since Congress enacted the option in 2004 for taxpayers to deduct state and local sales taxes in lieu of state income taxes on their federal returns, the provision has lurched from one temporary renewal to another. The deal expired at the end of 2009, and Congress waited 12 months before retroac-
licans voted against the measure by a 2-1 margin. Five Democrats and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., opposed the measure, while 14 Republicans, including Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, backed it. In the House, however, a solid majority of Republicans backed the measure despite reservations about its $89 billion impact on the budget deficit over the coming decade.
Final deal And Republicans said the final deal, significantly changed from a tea partybacked measure that passed in December, was the best Republicans could get. “We don’t control Wash-
ington [D.C.]. Democrats still control Washington — they control the Senate, and they control the White House,” said Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., the top House negotiator on the measure. “A divided government must still govern.” Camp cited stricter job search requirements for people receiving unemployment benefits and other reforms to the program as wins for conservatives. But many GOP lawmakers were upset that the measure would add to the federal deficit and doubted that it would do much to boost the economy. Another concern was that it cuts a payroll tax that’s dedicated to paying Social Security benefits. Deficit spending would make up for the lost revenue, but some lawmakers fear it would chip away at Washington’s commitment
tively renewing it through 2011. Congress let it lapse again in December while Democrats and Republicans wrangled furiously over a two-month stopgap agreement over Social Security tax reductions and extended unemployment benefits for the long-term unemployed. Last week, Congress largely forged a deal to extend those tax breaks through the rest of this year — but left out deductions for sales taxes, tuition, tax credits for clean energy and six dozen other tax breaks. The deal led to Friday’s fast-track passage of the payroll tax cut for all of 2012. Alaska, Florida, Nevada, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas and Wyoming also do not have a state income tax. New Hampshire has neither an income tax nor a general sales tax. Lawmakers from affected states have pushed hard to write the sales-tax deduction permanently into the tax code. Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Mountlake Terrace, who sits on the Senate Finance Committee, has sponsored a bill to do just that. But that legislation — along with three similar proposals introduced last year — stalled in committee.
to the program. “I cannot and I will not support legislation that extends the payroll tax holiday without paying for it,” said Rep. Phil Gingrey, R-Ga. “This will add $100 billion to the deficit and it will create an even greater shortfall within the Social Security trust fund that already has over $100 billion shortfall just in the last two years.”
And the No. 2 Democrat in the House, Steny Hoyer of Maryland, excoriated the measure for cutting the retirement benefits of new federal hires. “The only individuals paying for this bill out of 315 million Americans are the two million civilian workers who work for us, who work for all of us, day after day, week after week, month after month,” Hoyer said.

WASHINGTON — “The check is in the mail” might get legal push behind it. With U.S. Postal Service cuts threatening to slow mail delivery, a group of lawmakers on Capitol Hill is pushing legislation to require banks, credit card companies and other businesses to credit a customer’s account on the date a payment is postmarked rather than the date it is received. The Postmark Payment Act is similar to a 1995 bill that had bipartisan support but never made it through Congress in the face of opposition from banks and other industries that warned it could lead to higher costs.

Cathy and Paul Daley
‘Comes down to the simple things’ Communication becomes key for couple’s survival BY DIANE URBANI FOR
PORT ANGELES — He was, by his own description, a “longhaired, motorcycle-riding janitor.” She was an 18-year-old from Kansas. And from the day Paul and Cathy Daley met some 40 years ago, they had big differences. She’s ultra-feminine and genteel, and he’s a brash, big-belt-bucklewearing guy. He is a long-story teller, while she smiles and adds just a few choice words to the conversation. They have been married 37 years now; 27 of those have been in Port Angeles, where Paul, a psychologist, and Cathy, his office manager, have built a busy private practice.
An evolution To hear the story of this alliance is to hear about an evolution, an education — and large portions of mutual admiration. “Cathy is the very best human being I have ever met in my life,” Paul says. “And she is very, very good to me.” “It’s really quite easy,” his wife says. “He’s an interesting character. Life is not dull.” Being together, however, has not been easy for this team. Their two years of dating before marriage was in Paul’s word “tumultuous.” There were disagreements, family issues, misunderstandings. But amidst all that, there was, well, a powerful attraction. The Daleys met at Seattle Children’s hospital, where he was a janitor and she a ward clerk. “You had me from hello,” he says now, unabashedly quoting from a country song. She had a feeling he was it for her, too. “From the day he read my name tag, I had that connection,” Cathy says.
Cathy and Paul Daley on one of many horse-camping trips to Tamarack Spring outside Cle Elum years ago. And even though Paul was extremely shy, he managed to place himself in her line of sight. Since he knew where she worked at the hospital, he adjusted his janitorial territory accordingly. “I buffed her floor, even though it wasn’t my floor to buff,” he recalls.
TRUE LOVE STORIES
Courage to ask That led to him working up the nerve to ask her to take a motorcycle ride with him. She accepted; he borrowed a dollar for gas from his roommate; they vroomed off to the beach to sit on a log and talk. The conversation that day
gave birth to a four-decade journey. A big disagreement came early on, when they couldn’t agree on whether to live together or get married. Paul felt that “we
don’t need no damn piece of paper to show our love to the world.” Cathy, however, thought her father would kill both of them if they chose to “live in sin,” as it were.
First big fight
“So we argued and argued and argued. Then we decided to flip a coin. I won, and she looked devastated,” Paul remembers. OK, so the winner of two of three coin tosses would get his or her way. But Paul won again. And again, Cathy looked exceedingly sad.
Introducing Peninsula Profile BEGINNING TODAY, THE Sunday Peninsula Daily News will feature Peninsula Profile, a section filled with stories of inspiration, as well as wedding and anniversary announcements and advice columnists. We’re expanding Peninsula Woman and bringing men into the mix, so the centerpiece of this new section will be a profile of a local woman or man, an installment of the “True Love Stories” series about couples, or a “slice of life” story about an interesting local line of work. We welcome your suggestions of men, women, couples and jobs on the North Olympic Peninsula, and encourage you to share them with us. See Page 2 of this section for email, fax and regular mailing addresses. Diane Urbani de la Paz, features editor Peninsula Daily News
It became clear that they would keep on tossing that coin, until Cathy won at last. They smile at the memory now. “It was a face-saving way for me to say, ‘OK, let’s get married,’” Paul says. The Daleys tied the knot on the bank of the Stillaguamish River in Arlington on Aug. 30, 1974. Both wore blue jeans; he was 21 and she 20. Then the evolution began in earnest.
Change of direction Paul decided to leave the janitor job behind to go to the University of Washington — where he finished his undergraduate degree in three years — and then study for his doctorate at the University of Colorado. The reason he went to college at all? “Her,” Paul says. After his yearlong internship in Milwaukee, Paul and Cathy moved to John Day, a tiny town in the middle of Oregon. TURN

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Woman stuck in role of booty call DIANE’S AFFAIR WITH Eddie began shortly after he got married. It was “on and off in the beginning.” “We were always attracted to each other, and the relationship developed into an easy friendship,” she said. As time went on, Diane became a born-again Christian, and the relationship ended. Still, they remained friends and would call each other on their birthdays to see how they were doing. Eddie’s wife passed away last February, and in March he contacted Diane. “I was overwhelmed with grief for his loss, and I offered him my condolences,” she said. “I told him if he ever needed to talk, it would be all right for him to call me.” Eddie called shortly after that, telling Diane he was feeling “a little stir crazy” and wanted to come over. “I was prepared to let him talk out his grief, but when he arrived he wanted to do no such thing,” she said. “He started telling me how long it had been since he’d had sex. I expressed to him that I thought it was too soon for him to begin another relationship.
He called to say she had low self-esteem and no interests other than sex. He said he never wanted to see her again. “I tried to invite him to dinner, so we could talk since everything was now out in the open, but he said Cheryl Lavin he wouldn’t have dinner with me, ever,” she said. “But by the beginning of “He said when he’s through with someone, he’s April, we were in this whirlwind romance. I loved through.” And then Eddie said every minute of it, until I something very revealing. realized that I was still a secret and a booty call, the He said he stopped speaking to his uncle because his same as I’d been when he uncle moved a woman into was married.” his house six months after Their affair lasted four his wife died.

booty call. Nothing more. He has a strict moral code — for everyone but himself — and she doesn’t live up to it, anymore than his uncle and his uncle’s wife. That’s what I think. But what do you readers think?
Raff Their affair began shortly after Eddie got married. What was he to her? Nothing more than a booty call.
Yolanda Yes, Diane was the booty-call girl. Yes, Eddie was a raging hypocrite for cutting off his uncle and then doing the same thing his uncle did. Yes, he was a jerk to his wife — first for cheating on her, then by complaining about his lack of sex to Diane and finally, hopping in bed with Diane before the grass had grown over his wife’s grave.
Sandra Eddie is a hypocrite and a major jerk. As long as Diane was his doormat, willing to go along with whatever was convenient for him, he was happy. He’s not mature enough to see
his faults. Good riddance!
Karla Yes, Diane was a booty call, but let’s look at why. I suspect Eddie has antiquated views of women and lumps them into two categories: respectable and trash. One you bring home, and one you have fun with. Because Diane was willing to have an affair with him while he was married, he lumped her in the trash category. Remember that antiquated views have inherently different standards for men and women, so to him it was OK that he had a mistress, but she was a cheap slut. Once a guy who thinks like Eddie throws a woman into the trash category, she’ll never leave it. The fact that Eddie didn’t want to have an affair with Diane has nothing to do with grieving for his wife. It just makes Diane feel better to think that. He’ll meet someone he considers respectable, and she’ll have full status.
Faith It doesn’t matter how born-again Diane is. Eddie ain’t about to have a rela-
tionship with the woman who, simply by existing, reminds him that he cheated on his wife and was willing to meet his demand for sex without a relationship even after his wife died.
Sheila Eddie sounds like a jerk, but he’s right about at one thing. Diane does have incredibly low self-esteem. If she didn’t, she wouldn’t continue to beg him to continue the relationship and work things out. There’s nothing to work out. Even if he wanted to, he would never have an open relationship with her and introduce her to his family. He would be terrified that it would eventually slip out that they had been sexually involved while his wife was still living.
Mark In Eddie’s mind, Diane will always be the “dirty little secret” that he’s ashamed of.

Newborns not spoiled by being held a lot MY MOTHER-IN-LAW THINKS my newborn is spoiled just because he stops crying when I hold him and rock in the rocking chair. She says I will regret it later. Is she right?
Parent to Parent Jodie Lynn
Missouri parent Newborns can’t be spoiled. They need the warmth, comfort and security of being held. I believe studies have been done that show babies who did not get held enough (in former Soviet bloc orphanages) had trouble bonding with people. This is why children’s hospitals have people come in
and hold premature babies when the parents are not available. Hold your baby as often as he needs to be held and as you need it too. The time spent holding a baby is never time wasted. — L.H. in Florissant, Mo.
From Jodie The most common ways babies communicate with their new world is through various types and intensities of crying. Your baby boy could be wet, hungry, cold, angry, frustrated, overstimulated, not feeling well, lonely or something else entirely and holding him fulfills his current need for comfort for whatever the reason. It has been well-established that there is not a such a thing as spoiling a newborn or any baby younger than 12 months. It is actually doing just the opposite. Through human touch and cuddling he feels
protected, encouraged and loved and is building his self-confidence and trust. As he gets older, he will want to be held less frequently, especially if you will sing, talk or hum quietly while holding or rocking him or both. For example, when he gets around 6 months old, he could very well be extremely happy just to be near you and hearing your voice. In every child’s life, as they approach multiple milestones, many times all they need to be inspired to continue whatever they are learning at the time is a simple hug and smile.
When he begins to walk, he will look to you for physical and emotional confirmation that he is doing something great and will readily seek that little boost of encouragement cleverly demonstrated by you through a simple smile or hug. Always remember, everyone enjoys a hug regardless of age.

decade of their marriage was riddled with loud conflict. But they made it into their 30s together, they say, because they learned how to soften toward each other. Back when Paul and Cathy were in therapy, he would get angry at something she said, something he didn’t understand. The counselor would ask him to count to 10 before reacting, but he couldn’t even get to “o — .” “I felt too stabbed,” he remembers.

Suddenly, Paul had an idea: Let us try to talk to each other, he suggested, with our eyes instead of our words. Cathy made a face, but then started to cry. So did Paul. They knew then that they didn’t want to treat each other badly any more. “I don’t know how it came to me,” Paul said of the talk-with-your-eyes notion.

Singer Oâ€™Connor tries to find some peace BY RAVI SOMAIYA NEW YORK TIMES
COUNTY WICKLOW, IRELAND â€” Outside Sinead Oâ€™Connorâ€™s whitewashed home here, on a windswept beachfront overlooking the misty Irish Sea, there are two talismans. One, a knee-high statue of the Virgin Mary, stands with her arms beatifically spread, silently welcoming visitors. The other, a crudely taped-up sign, written so emphatically in ballpoint that the paper is almost torn through, is directed at the reporters who have besieged the singer, her four children, three dogs and a cat in recent weeks. It reads: â€œDearest loving hacks. This is your quote: Rock â€™nâ€™ Roll!â€? When Oâ€™Connor opened the door on a recent afternoon, wearing a black T-shirt that read â€œProperty of Jesusâ€? under a long, black leather coat, a wool hat pulled down low over her blazing eyes, she sounded weary.
â€˜Blood like leadâ€™ â€œIâ€™m very physically tired in a way that Iâ€™ve never been in my life,â€? she explained. â€œItâ€™s almost like my blood feels like lead.â€? The trouble began, she said, when she decided that after more than two decades in the news â€” most memorably for tearing up a picture of the pope on â€œSaturday Night Liveâ€? in 1992 to protest child abuse in the Catholic Church â€” she wouldnâ€™t let the world â€œstop me being meâ€? or deny herself the instant pleasures of the Internet. She took to her website last summer and advertised for a man. On Dec. 8, her 45th birthday, she married one of her respondents, an Irish youth drug counselor named Barry Herridge, then 38, at A Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas and all-but livetweeted the wedding night. They split days later. Only to reconcile. Only to split again. Now, she said, they are back together and firmly in love.

behavior, she said, is tied to her gender: â€œâ€˜Hereâ€™s this woman, sheâ€™s not behaving like a woman is supposed to behave, so she must be either mad or bad or a rebel or controversial.â€™ â€œWhereas if I was a fellow, it wouldnâ€™t be up for question whether thereâ€™s anything to apologize for. No one asks Mick Jagger if he calmed down.â€? To some extent, she said, her life is still defined by abuse as a child at the hands of her mother. She and her siblings were â€œbeaten up very severely with every kind of implement you can imagine,â€? she told Spin magazine in 1991, and told they were dirty and worthless. â€œMerely the sounds of my motherâ€™s feet,â€? she said, â€œwere enough to send us into spasms of complete terror.â€? In 2007, she told Oprah Winfrey that she had bipolar disorder. â€œBut that was misdiagnosed,â€? she said now. â€œWhat I have is post-traumatic stress from that abuse, that I deal with a day at a time.â€? She dealt with those issues in public after her hit Prince song, â€œNothing Compares 2 U,â€? topped American and British charts in 1990, making her a bona-fide star and shaven-headed idol to many women. Her 1990 album, â€œI Do Not Want What I Havenâ€™t Gotâ€? (Ensign/Chrysalis), sold millions. But in later years, she announced a form of retirement from pop music, put out experiments in traditional Irish folk and reggae and learned bel canto. She returned to Ireland, after stints in London and Los Angeles, â€œso my children can be near their fathers,â€? she said. When she took to her blog and to Twitter last year, she said, she had come to terms with who she was. Oâ€™Connor said, â€œMusicians were sent to earth to help people, so we have to be imperfect, or how will they identify with us?â€? She had, she said, â€œadopted a policy of not acting any differently to my next-door neighbor.â€? Her manager, Fachtna Oâ€™Ceallaigh, who has
known her for nearly 25 years, said that he knew he would not, could not, stop her from expressing herself. â€œSo I just tried to look away and think of all the things she has achieved with that same openness, like risking her career taking on the Catholic Church,â€? he said. â€œThe same thing that makes her great, that generates joy and fulfillment in her work, has also caused great pain and difficulty for her. It is incredibly painful to see her living her life the way she lives it sometimes.â€?
â€˜Goldfish bowlâ€™ In the dark days at the start of January, Oâ€™Connor said, she was cast into despair by an Irish newspaper that used her words online to target her husband. â€œIt is a goldfish bowl,â€? she explained, â€œand I canâ€™t get away from being me. Even in the nuthouse, they were afraid to take me in because Iâ€™m Sinead Oâ€™Connor.â€? She wants the same things as everyone else: a happy relationship, contented children, a blooming career. â€œI want to be like any other person, but Iâ€™ll have to accept that I canâ€™t be because sometimes me being me hurts other people,â€? she said. As visitors left her home, she gave wide-open, un-self-conscious hugs of farewell. In the days following the interview, she text-messaged a reporter new thoughts that had occurred to her, impolitic or not, but her new Twitter account is locked and accessible only to those she knows. â€œItâ€™s not fun anymore,â€? she said during the interview. No one who judges her, she said in a text message, has â€œany inkling of the level of loneliness which would leadâ€? to her missteps. But she will stick to her vow not to overshare online because, she wrote in another message, she wants to be known only for two things she remains proud of: â€œmaking music and fighting the Vatican.â€?

DEAR JOHN: MY husband and I have been married for 13 years. Eighteen months ago, my husband secretly went back to smoking, despite repeatedly lying to me on the subject, even when Iâ€™ve caught him sneaking a smoke. Our lives are very stressful. We have three children, and he works two jobs. Money is tight, and I find myself depressed. I feel that he has lied to me about his smoking for so long. Weâ€™ve started counseling, but I feel he is not being honest about his feelings when we go. In any case, I doubt everything he says and does. Please help us. â€” Smoked Out in Green Bay, Wis.

Moody man blues Dear John: Iâ€™m a very cheerful person. Unfortunately, my boyfriendâ€™s depression is getting me down.

Whatâ€™s the best way to let him know that he should lighten up, before he loses me, too? â€” Little Miss Sunshine in Marietta, Ga.
Dear Little Miss Sunshine: From what youâ€™re describing, your boyfriend may be clinically depressed. Before you call it quits, encourage him to seek counseling and to get a diagnosis from a licensed psychiatrist. Depression is nothing to be ashamed of. It is a condition that can be controlled. With your love and support, heâ€™ll be on the right path to a more satisfying frame of mind.

This week’s question: What is the best part of being the age you are now?
“Taking life a lot easier. I enjoy life more with swimming over at SARC [Sequim Aquatic Recreation Center] and reading mystery books. “I don’t have to get up in the morning, and this time of year the sun is my alarm. I only use the clock alarm on Sunday when I go to church. I also don’t get upset about things, since often it really doesn’t matter. “We’re going on a Caribbean cruise soon that I’m looking forward to. They have midnight buffets and ‘Chocolate Extravaganza.’ “Life is good.”
“The best part is that I better understand things, and I’m not always stressed over the little things. I’m less emotional than I was. “I love my 40s. In my 30s and 20s, I was much more indecisive. I couldn’t always make up my mind because there were so many options. “I know more, and I worry less now. At this point, my kids are grown now, and I can finally pursue a career. I love it now.”
Beverly Northington, 73 retired secretary Sequim
Tamatha McCarthy, 43 college student Port Angeles
“For me, the best part is that I still have time to decide what I want to do. I still have time for fun, and I can relax and hang out with my friends. Also, I don’t have to be too serious — yet. “I’m in college right now so I can pursue a career in nursing and hopefully make money in the near future. “It’s a good time in life with many more years ahead of me.”

Cathy also remembers the romantic dinners they had when they were first dating. Paul would prepare all of the ingredients for tacos, and bring the skillets to the hospital where she worked, so they could assemble everything and dine during her break. Paul, for his part, spoke of his wife’s thoughtfulness when his mother was ill. “Cathy sent her a getwell card every day,” he recalls. Later on, he figured out that the old standby, flowers, have magic powers.
