Motorists dealing with higher gas prices By Tom Callis and Jeff Chew

How much does gas cost?

Peninsula Daily News

It’s not hard to find drivers on the North Olympic Peninsula frustrated over the consistent rise in gas prices. From Neah Bay to Port Townsend, prices continue to inch their way closer to $4 a gallon than they have since 2008, and motorists say they are watching it with concern. “I’m a courier, so it affects my job,” said John Miller of Port Townsend, who was fueling up his 28-miles-per-gallon Toyota at Jamestown S’Klallam tribe’s Longhouse Marketplace and Deli in Blyn for $3.539 a gallon Friday. “It means less profit.”

Pushed by unrest in Libya

Here is a sample of regular unleaded gas prices across the North Olympic Peninsula, compiled Friday and Saturday. ■  $3.389 — Costco Wholesale (Sequim). ■  $3.439 — Safeway (Sequim). ■  $3.499 — Safeway (Port Townsend). ■  $3.539 — Longhouse Marketplace and Deli (Blyn). ■  $3.539 — 76 (Port Hadlock). ■  $3.599 — Chevron (Chimacum). per barrel in New York, the highest level since Sept. 26, 2008. A gallon of regular gained another 4.4 cents overnight to a new national average of $3.471 per gallon, according to AAA, Wright Express and the Oil Price Information Service.

PORT ANGELES — Jonathan Evison, author of a bestselling novel about Port Angeles, has a question about those who may come to his reading next Sunday. “Are they warming up the tar out there for me?” As in preparing to tar and feather him? The Bainbridge Island writer is only Evison half joking. Evison’s sophomore effort — following his critically acclaimed debut novel All About Lulu — is a 496page epic titled West of Here, and it paints this town as full of oddballs: from boozy Native Americans to prostitutes to drugaddled youths to Sasquatch hunters. Evison, who’s been visiting Port Angeles since he was a boy growing up on Bainbridge, takes his readers back and forth through time, into the Olympic Mountains and up and down the Elwha River. Through the eyes of people living here in 1890 and in 2006, we see the rise and fall of many dreams, two cultures and just one dam. Although West of Here was spawned by the forthcoming destruction of the two Elwha River dams, Evison opted to boil things down to just one, built by a Thomas Aldwell counterpart named Ethan Thornburgh. The two became one because “I couldn’t have two central metaphors in the novel,” he said; that would be too much.

But Evison does not, evidently, feel that his large, motley cast of 19th- and 21st-century characters are too many. He’s cooked up Eva Lambert, Thornburgh’s ex-lover and a proponent of a utopian community a la the Puget Sound Cooperative Colony of 1880s Port Angeles; prostitutes with monikers such as Galloping Gertie and Peaches; a strange-acting Native American boy who wanders like a vapor from town to woods; James Mather, an explorer bent on conquering the Olympic wil-

derness; and on and on. And those are just the 1890 crowd. The 2006 bunch includes the guy on the Bigfoot quest; Curtis, the young, apathetic Klallam kid; Ethan’s descendant, Jared Thornburgh, who manages the fish-packing plant; Hillary Burch, the sustainability advocate; and too many more to fit here. The Elwha River, the Klallam people, Hollywood Beach, the Bushwhacker Restaurant and the Olympic Mountains all kept their names in West of Here. Yet Evison dubs Port Angeles Port Bonita because, he said, he wanted to write not a work of journalism but fiction, with ample liberties. Turn

Publicist: Arquette ‘OK’ after crash DAVID ARQUETTE’S CADILLAC crashed headon with another vehicle in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Friday, but the actor was not seriously hurt and even joked about the collision on Twitter just a few hours later. Arquette, 39, was “OK” after the crash and was on his way to being treated, publicist Arquette Cindy Guagenti told The Associated Press in an e-mail. “I got into a car accident but I’m fine. Luckily I have dragon’s blood running through my veins,” Arquette quipped on his Twitter account about two hours after the accident. “Haha. Thank you for all your concern.” In another Tweet, he said: “Remember to wear your seatbelt — wish I was.” Arquette and the other driver were the only two

people involved in the collision that happened on Doheny Drive, just north of Santa Monica Boulevard along the West Hollywood border, Beverly Hills police and fire officials said. There was no immediate word on what caused the crash. Both were taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles with injuries that were not considered serious. Celebrity website TMZ, which first reported the accident, posted pictures that showed Arquette lying on a patch of roadside grass next to his silver Cadillac and another vehicle. Both had damage on their front bumpers and air bags deployed. Video posted on the site showed paramedics and firefighters putting a man that appeared to be Arquette on a stretcher and lifting him into an ambulance.

Usher ‘troubled’ Usher said Friday he’s “sincerely troubled” to learn he appeared at a concert in St. Bart’s linked to Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi’s family and plans to donate his concert fee to human rights organizations. Earlier durin the week,

All the singers have promised to give their fees to charity or said they have already done so. Usher did not perform but was paid to appear at the private concert featuring Beyonce in 2009. “I am sincerely troubled to learn about the circumstances surrounding the Nikki Beach St. Bart’s event that took place on New Year’s Eve 2009,” he said in a statement released to The Associated Press. The statement said Usher made a contribution Friday to Amnesty International, which the organization confirmed. The group said Usher requested the donation amount be private.

CHARLES JARROTT, 83, a British director whose career of nearly 50 years in film and television included the acclaimed British royalty dramas “Anne of the Thousand Days” and “Mary, Queen of Scots,” has died, a spokeswoman said Saturday. Mr. Jarrott, who had been suffering from prostate cancer, died Friday night in Los Angeles, said Jaime Larkin, a spokeswoman for the Motion Picture & Television Fund. The London-born Mr. Jarrott served in the Royal Navy during World War II and was an actor before taking up directing in 1954. He worked mostly in television, then went on to direct a prominent string of feature films in the 1960s and 1970s. He won a Golden Globe for directing Richard Burton as Henry VIII in 1969’s “Anne of the Thousand Days,” which told the story of the Tudor monarch and Anne Boleyn. Two years later, he returned with the similarly themed “Mary, Queen of Scots,” with Vanessa Redgrave in the title role. The two films, produced by Hollywood legend and “Casablanca” producer Hal Wallis, were nominated for a combined 15 Academy Awards.

After multiparty democracy was restored in 1990, Mr. Bhattarai was appointed prime minister of an interim government comprising representatives from his Nepali Congress party and several communist parties. During his nine months in power, he conducted Nepal’s first free elections in 30 years and enforced a new constitution that guaranteed democratic rights. In 1999, he again became prime minister after the Nepali Congress party won elections. However, feuds in the faction-ridden party forced him to step down after nine months. As prime minister, Bhat-

tarai made official visits to India, Japan and the United Kingdom, and led the Nepalese delegation to the meeting of the South Asian Regional Cooperation in 1991 in the Maldives. His strict anti-corruption drive gave him the image of a clean politician. His antinepotism stand also helped him gain popularity among the public. Mr. Bhattarai spent nearly 14 years in prison for opposing the autocratic system imposed in the country in 1960. The government has declared a period of national mourning. Mr. Bhattarai’s body will be cremated today in Katmandu.

Briefly: Nation Michael Moore rallies pro-union Wis. protesters MADISON, Wis. — Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore urged Wisconsin residents Saturday to fight Republican-backed efforts to strip most public workers of their collective bargaining rights, telling thousands of protesters that “Madison is only the beginning.” The crowd roared in approval as Moore implored demonstrators to keep up their struggle against Republican Moore Gov. Scott Walker’s legislation, comparing their fight to Egypt’s revolt. He also thanked the 14 state Democratic senators who fled Wisconsin to block a vote on the bill, saying they’ll go down in history books. “We’re going to do this together. Don’t give up. Please don’t give up,” Moore told the protesters, who have held steady at the Capitol for nearly three weeks.

More spending cuts? WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama said he’s willing to make deeper spending cuts if Congress can compromise on a budget deal that would end the threat of a government shutdown. Obama’s appeal for common ground came Saturday in his weekly radio and Internet address but lacked specifics on

how to bridge the $50 billion gulf that divides the White House and Democratic budget proposal from the deeper reductions offered by Republicans. The competing plans are headed for test votes in the Senate in the coming week; neither is expected to survive, setting the stage for further negotiations.

GOP abortion dilemma WASHINGTON — Restrict abortion or cut spending? The Republicans’ “Pledge for America” says the new majority will do both. But negotiations over the federal budget threaten to force the GOP, including its 87 House freshmen, to choose between them. It’s a lesson in congressional reality that has Republicans struggling with how to vote — and what to do — when a divided government pits pledge against pledge. “That’s a problem — and I mean, a real problem,” said Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, chairman of the conservative Republican Study Committee’s budget and spending task force.

Briefly: World Egyptians turn anger toward internal security CAIRO — Three weeks after President Hosni Mubarak’s ouster, Egyptians are turning their anger toward his internal security apparatus, storming the agency’s main headquarters and other offices Saturday and seizing documents to keep them from being destroyed to hide evidence of human rights abuses. What to do with Egypt’s tainted security agencies remains one of the most contentious issues facing the military rulers who took charge after Mubarak was forced to step down Feb. 11 after an 18-day popular uprising. The 500,000-strong internal security services are accused of some of the worst human rights abuses in the suppression of dissent against Mubarak’s nearly 30-year rule. The protesters are demanding the agency be dismantled and its leaders face a reckoning.

Combat stress SANGIN, Afghanistan — When U.S. Marine Lance Cpl. Derek Goins deployed to the most dangerous place in Afghanistan five months ago, he mentally prepared for the risk of getting shot by the Taliban or stepping on bombs buried throughout this southern river valley. But he wasn’t ready for what happened to his two best friends, who were shot to death inside a patrol base by an Afghan army soldier who escaped into the arms of the Taliban.

“I grew up with those guys in the Marine Corps and shared a lot of laughs and tears with them,” said Goins, 23, from Trumbull, Texas. “We expected to come here and fight and not just get murdered, and that’s what it was.” The Marines who arrived in Sangin district of Helmand province in October have seen the kind of tragedy and combat stress that few can imagine — more than 30 deaths and 175 wounded, with scores losing arms and legs when they stepped on bombs. The 3rd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment and smaller Marine units attached to it are fighting to regain this key insurgent stronghold in one of the country’s bloodiest regions.

Police Superintendent Sandra Manderson today told reporters the death toll had risen to 166 with another body recovered Saturday. The final toll is expected to exceed 200.

Father of 5 dies after falling 190 feet into Nev. mine shaft By Martin Griffith The Associated Press

RENO, Nev. — A father of five children has died after falling into a Nevada mine shaft so deep and treacherous that rescuers had to abandon efforts to reach him while he was still alive, officials said Saturday. Devin Westenskow, 28, of Evanston, Wyo., worked at a geothermal drilling operation in Nevada and had gone exploring Wednesday with two friends during his off-hours when he fell 190 feet into the open shaft northeast of Reno. His family thanked rescue workers in a statement that also identified Westenskow. “We feel they did everything possible to rescue Devin but that there was no way to get him out

alive given the extent of his injuries and instability of the mine shaft,” the statement said. “We are forever grateful for their efforts.” The decision to end the rescue came after two unsuccessful attempts by search teams to descend into the shaft, where Westenskow was trapped in debris, said Doran Sanchez, a U.S. Bureau of Land Management spokesman. An attempt Thursday caused walls of the 100-plus-year-old shaft to crumble and rocks to fall on rescuers, he said. “One individual was hit in the head by falling rock, and it split his hard hat,” Sanchez said. “You’re talking about two of the best search-and-rescue squads in Nevada, and they finally determined there was no way they

could safely rappel down.” Westenskow was given last rites Friday. Authorities said he was pronounced dead at 12:30 p.m. that day. Word of the death was not released until Saturday because there was no cell phone service in the remote area for authorities to stay in contact. “The family feels that if Jesus Christ was buried in a tomb, it’s good enough for Devin,” his grandmother, Lois Westenskow of Layton, Utah, told The Associated Press. A video camera showed he had been breathing early Friday but not moving and had suffered serious head injuries. Images taken Thursday night revealed he had been moving his hands.

Contractor John Kimmel of JK Dirtworks and volunteer Pat Milliren also attended the ceremony, along with several of the Hamilton students who will use the space. The newly minted stage and benches — set among the more than 30 types of trees and shrubs in the area — form an area for students to study, hear presentations and find a quiet place to write, Engel said.

Monds hopes vandalism will be discouraged by a metal gate designed by Bob Stokes and made by Gray Lucier, both of Port Angeles. The gate incorporates the mascot for the old Lincoln School: the colts. The third phase of the project will be the re-establishment of the rose arbor that graced the school for many years. “Once we get the new doors up and the gate in and the new arbors built, we will have a nice view of the school,” Monds said. The rose arbor work is last on the list, Monds said. “We had hoped to do metal arbors, but the cost estimate was a lot higher than expected,” she said, so now the group is checking into the cost of wooden structures. “Then, we’ll make a decision.” Funds in use now were gleaned from last year’s garage sale, an annual fall event and the major fundraiser for the group. “The more funds we can raise, the more we can start doing,” Monds said. Lincoln School, built in 1916, was a grade school until it was closed in 1978. It was vacant and destined to be razed when purchased by the Clallam County Historical Society in 1991. It since has had a seismic retrofit and new flooring. For more information, phone the historical society office at 360-452-2662.

Rayonier cleanup to take bit longer By Tom Callis

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — A cleanup plan for the former Rayonier mill site will take slightly longer to create than the state Department of Ecology had last projected. Rather than getting it done around summer 2013, the plan is now expected to be ready toward the end of that year, Rebecca Lawson, Ecology’s southwest regional toxics cleanup program manager, said Friday. The reason for the change is that additional soil and groundwater sampling on the Rayonier property is taking a few months longer than when Ecology made that estimate, she said. That’s taking longer because the state agency and Rayonier agreed to have the testing done in phases rather than all at once, which Lawson said will provide better results. Ecology had estimated it would take six months in its “agreed order” with Rayonier, signed about a year ago.

More like nine months It’s looking more like nine months, Lawson said. “In reality, we weren’t sure how long it was going to take,” she said. “The phased approach does take a little longer,” Lawson added, “and it also helps ensure that we’re going to get all the data we need to move forward with making a cleanup plan.” The Rayonier property is contaminated with pockets

of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), dioxin, arsenic and other toxins left by the pulp mill that operated at the base of Ennis Creek there for 68 years before closing in 1997. The site became an Ecology cleanup project in 2000. City leaders, already wary of a cleanup project that started 11 years ago and has yet to produce a plan for removing contaminates, didn’t welcome the news.

‘Very frustrating’

time line, Lawson acknowledged. How long work related to Ecology’s off-site soil and marine sediment studies — which are part of the Rayonier cleanup effort — and Ecology’s review of documents will take is merely estimated.

Time line could slip Lawson acknowledged that, since how long those efforts to take hasn’t been fully fleshed out, they present potential opportunities for the time line to slip further. She said she is “pretty confident” that won’t happen. “We’re almost finished with implementing the fieldwork, so we feel pretty confident we will finish on time,” Lawson said. Lawson said she and her staff will look at ways to condense the time line in other areas to make up for time lost. The marine and off-site soil studies, started in 2008, remain incomplete. Those studies are intended to determine the extent of contamination from the mill. The final results of the soil study should be released for public comment this spring, Lawson said. The third, and possibly final, draft of the marine sediment study should be done this week, she said.

“It is very frustrating,” said City Manager Kent Myers last month. “We have been hoping they would stay on task, stay on schedule, that they had the right commitment to the project and that this is a high priority, and this is very disappointing.” Lawson said she recognizes the frustration. “We are really trying to find that balance between doing a comprehensive study and a timely study,” she said. “This has been going on for a decade, and we all want to see it get completed, and we need to do a complete cleanup.” The sampling, intended to fill in “data gaps” with past work, began last fall. Lawson said the last phase of the sampling will start this week. Ecology expects it will take another three months for sampling and lab work ________ to be finished.

Accused child molester late to his arraignment Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — A bench warrant for a Sequim man — who had missed his Friday morning arraignment on two counts of firstdegree child rape and four counts of first-degree child molestation — was quashed by a Clallam County Superior Court judge when the man showed up to court Friday afternoon. Gary M. Larson, 29, is due in court again this Friday at 9 a.m., when his trial date is to be set. He was released from custody on his own recognizance two days after his Feb. 20 arrest, despite the objection of Deputy Prose-

cuting Attorney Ann Lundwall. After a six-minute hearing Friday afternoon before Clallam County Superior Court Judge Ken Williams, Larson was again released on his own recognizance. He is ordered to remain in Western Washington, abide by an 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew and have no contact with the girl he is accused of raping or anyone younger than 18. Clallam County Superior Court Judge S. Brooke Taylor signed the bench warrant Friday. Bond for his release was set at $35,000 before the warrant was nullified. Larson was charged Feb.

24 for crimes committed between 2003 and 2009 in Port Angeles against a girl who is now 12. The girl reported the crimes to her parents, who phoned Port Angeles on Feb. 10. Port Angeles police arrested Larson without incident after conducting an investigation. Detective Kori Malone led the investigation. First-degree child rape and first-degree child molestation protect children younger than 12. Both are Class A felonies punishable by a maximum of life in prison and a $50,000 fine.

PORT ANGELES — Work on the First Street stormwater project will move east toward Oak Street this week. Road Construction Northwest Inc. of Renton has partially finished installing a water filter at Valley and First streets, said Teresa Pierce, Port Angeles city spokeswoman, on Friday. Beginning Monday, crews will work to install a new stormwater pipe under the south lane of First Street up to Oak Street. Workers will grind the pavement on the south side of First Street and then begin laying the stormwater line.

There will be no construction work Fridays, Saturdays or during the day Sundays, Pierce said. All businesses and sidewalks in this area will remain open during the project.

Future work After workers install the line to Oak Street, they will install it up to Laurel Street. That work is scheduled to be done by Memorial Day (May 30). Through June 30, the schedule calls for workers to finish paving both lanes of the road between Valley and Laurel streets, applying fog seal to the block between Laurel and Lincoln streets, adding bike lanes and adding and replacing crosswalks. The project has a price tag of about $2.25 million, with the city contributing $225,000 for street paving and the rest coming from the National Park Service. The park service is covering that cost because the

Crews will take a break between about 3:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays to avoid heavier commuter traffic, Pierce said. “This will be adjusted as needed,” she said.

PA woman acquitted of vehicular homicide Is guilty of driving under the influence By Tom Callis

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — A jury acquitted Lovera M. Blackcrow of vehicular homicide last week, three months after the same charge was dropped against the other driver involved in the 2009 wreck that claimed the life of Shelly M. Bartlett. The reason for the acquittal Thursday in Clallam County Superior Court was simple, said her attorney, Karen Unger: It could not be proven that Blackcrow, though driving drunk, caused the woman’s death. Blackcrow, 31, had a blood-alcohol level of 0.123. The jury found her guilty of driving under the influence. “There’s got to be a connection between impairment and the accident,” Unger said.

Guilty of DUI That connection wasn’t there, she said, because it was car trouble, not her client’s impairment, that led to the tragedy. In the early morning hours of Aug. 16, 2009, Blackcrow of Port Angeles was driving northbound on Dry Creek Road when she came to the stop sign at Edgewood Drive, authorities said. But as she began to take a left turn onto the other road, the motor of her Ford Expedition died. An approaching motor-

cycle driven by Port Angeles resident Roger D. Mallicott, with Bartlett on the back, braked hard to avoid the vehicle. Bartlett, 45, of Sequim was ejected from the motorcycle and hit the Expedition. She died at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle from head injuries. Authorities said Mallicott, 48, was also drunk, further complicating who should be held responsible. Citing that he could not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Mallicott caused Bartlett’s death, Clallam County Deputy Prosecuting Attorney John Troberg filed a motion to dismiss his vehicular homicide charge Dec. 1. Mallicott still faces a charge of driving under the influence, but a trial date has not been set.

Justice was done

difference is based upon” the review of evidence by expert witnesses. “I can’t elaborate on specific evidence,” she said. Unger said Blackcrow was sentenced to one day in jail for the DUI conviction. That time was served while she was in custody before the trial. Her client faced between 31 to 41 months in prison if convicted of vehicular homicide, she said. Kelly said she still felt justice was done. “The jury decides what justice is,” she said. “In this case, they decided it was a DUI,” Kelly added. Earlier in the case, Judge Brooke Taylor slapped the Prosecutor’s Office with a $500 fine for incorrectly saying that Mallicott was a member of the Hells Angels motorcycle club and that Unger “apparently” was the club’s attorney. The erroneous statement was made by Erika Soublet, who no longer works at the office. Kelly appealed the sanction to the state Court of Appeals. Unger said the court has not ruled on the appeal.

Troberg, who prosecuted the Blackcrow case, was out of the office Friday and could not be reached for comment.

21 airlines fined for fixing fees By Alicia A. Caldwell

The airlines’ crimes cost U.S. consumers and businesses — mostly international passengers and cargo shippers — hundreds of millions of dollars, prosecutors say. But the airlines caught by the Justice Department have paid a hefty price in the five years since the government’s widespread investigation became public. To date, 19 executives have been charged with wrongdoing — four have gone to prison — and 21

airlines have coughed up more than $1.7 billion in fines in one of the largest criminal antitrust investigations in U.S. history. The court cases reveal a complex web of schemes between mostly international carriers willing to fix fees in lockstep with competitors for flights to and from the United States. Convicted airlines include British Airways, Korean Air, and Air FranceKLM. No major U.S. carriers have been charged.

WASHINGTON — When the airline industry took a nosedive a decade ago, executives at global carriers scrambled to find a quick fix to avoid financial ruin. What they came up with, according to federal prosecutors, was a massive pricefixing scheme among airlines that artificially inflated passenger and cargo fuel surcharges between 2000 and 2006 to make up for lost profits.

1 files for Clallam County Conservation District election By Paul Gottlieb

Peninsula Daily News

It’s conservation district election season on the North Olympic Peninsula. Not that too many people seem interested, judging so far by the number of candidates and voters. Sequim-area resident Ashley Merscher was the only person to file for a Clallam Conservation District supervisor vacancy created when incumbent Marilyn Pollock decided not to seek

re-election to the three-year term. Polling places and times for the March 14 election are from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Sequim Library, 630 N. Sequim Ave., and from 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St. Unlike years past, no one can sign up as a writein at the last minute, district manager Joe Holtrop said in a recent interview. New state laws require

write-ins to file candidate forms for open positions four weeks before balloting — the same day other candidates also file nominating petitions with the signatures of at least 25 county registered voters. Merscher filed as a candidate with 38 names on the nominating petition. The deadline was Feb. 14 for both write-in candidates and those who file with nominating petitions. “We have a tradition of having write-in candi-

dates for our elections,” Holtrop said. “If history repeats itself and there is a write-in candidate out there, and lo and behold it turns out people write their name on it but it’s all in vain, it might not be too much fun to deal with.” The five-person Clallam board of supervisors is responsible for an annual publicly funded budget of between $1 million and $2 million.

Gas: Prices to peak in the spring

The board is responsible for a $280,000 operating budget for the 2010 fiscal year. Conservation district boards statewide implement plans and distribute publicly funded grants to private landowners to protect natural resources such as soil and streams.

Book stirs interest in Port Angeles By Diane Urbani de la Paz

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — West of Here, Jonathan Evison’s epic tome about life beneath the Olympic Mountains, could mean “pennies from heaven,” as Diane Schostak sees it. “We hope it will be a driver for people to discover the Olympic Peninsula,” said Schostak, the West End native who is executive director of the Olympic Peninsula Visitor Bureau. She and bureau communications manager Mary Brelsford are busy compiling a list of places named in the novel — Hollywood Beach, the Bushwhacker restaurant, the mouth of the Elwha River, to name a few — for literary travelers to visit. “Westies and Twihards can come together and tour the Peninsula,” said Brelsford, referring to readers of West of Here and of the Twilight saga by Stephenie Meyer. She and Schostak aren’t taking this too seriously: They’re putting Walmart, another prominent place in Evison’s story, on the itinerary. “We’ll have all the iconic locations,” Brelsford quipped. West of Here has in its cast of characters a guy who goes deep into the woods looking for Sasquatch, that mysterious wild thing also known as Bigfoot.

Evison, for his part, said he hopes to pique locals’ interest in their town’s history. That’s exactly what hap“We’re still forced to reckon with match skit — the reader may well By Diane Urbani de la Paz pened with April Bellerud, our early mistakes.

Evison chose Algonquin muddy, the bars and brothels busy and the people not because that house drunk — either on alcohol offered the most money, but or the desire to vanquish because he believed it the wilderness one way or would do the best job with his sprawling tale. another. And Evison, who’s on a History, after all, “is a

big, messy thing. My favorite novels are messy; Moby Dick is a mess,” he added. So Evison populates his story with a big flock of characters, many with counterparts in the other era, to show the connections between past and present. “I grew up reading John Steinbeck and Mark Twain, writers who really brought regions to life,” he added. “I wanted to bring the Northwest to life” and show it to the world. Evison said he conducted copious research on Port Angeles, the Klallams and the Olympic Mountains — he camps out here in his motor home for 60 to 100 nights a year — but he did

not intend to cling slavishly to facts. “I didn’t want to write a historical novel; I wanted to write about history . . . I wanted all the little people to tell their stories,” he said. Most of all, Evison sought to “start a conversation. I wanted history to be ambiguous” in a book whose elements are both historical and mythical. West of Here gives people plenty to talk about, what with its tale of dam-building, wilderness-exploring and -exploiting, the clash of Native American and nonNative American cultures and the hope for a new and restorative era. While the novel has in

its first month since release been lingering on independent booksellers’ best-seller list as well as The New York Times list, the reviews are mixed. And Evison reads them with relish. “I want to know what the conversation is; I want to know what I’ve wrought,” he said. The writer wonders whether there will be “history curmudgeons,” sticklers ready to take him to task for turning Port Angeles’ past “onto its ear,” as he said. “It’s a town that has had some hard knocks,” Evison said, adding that he’s seen the empty storefronts on the main drag. But “the

town seems like a fighter to me; it always has. “The book is ultimately hopeful,” he added. “This is a hopeful page in history. With the death of the logging industry . . . Port Angeles hasn’t had a hopeful page in a long time.” And as the Elwha dams come down — removal starts this September — “the eyes of the world are on [the Peninsula],” Evison said. “Port Angeles is, once again, like a leader. I think it’s really cool.”

People started forwarding his post to their networks, and the Department of Transportation saw his note, and DOT workers moved his car to the shoulder.

Peninsula Daily News for Sunday, March 6, 2011




Running to seek solace in shoes I LIVE IN the city of Los Angeles, which is abuzz at the moment with shocking and dramatic breaking news. The news about pilot seaDiane son, that is. Not the Farr news of Tunisia’s regime change or Egypt’s opening of the Suez Canal to Iran or the people of Libya desperately trying to stay alive after their own leader declared war on them. Or the happenings in Bahrain, Yemen or Iran. Rather, so many of my incredibly smart friends and colleagues are calling, texting and tweeting the big news of who just got themselves a one-time appearance on a TV show. That’s because here, in the

Big Orange, it is “pilot season.” News is released hourly on who has captured the lead, colead and even a guest spot on every single pilot for next year’s network television development slate. Most of these pilots never even make it on the air. A pilot is a one-time trial run, used as an example of what a TV series would look like. It is clearly no indication of whether it would make a good series because most that do become weekly shows immediately fail. I know that revolutions and celebrity sightings are the most important news to cover (and not always in that order), but I am ready to admit that both feeds are not really worth the anxiety they cause me as I sit in my little office watching these dramas play out in real time. Having attained a bachelor’s degree in theater some years ago, I work regularly as an actress and can also spot drama from really far away.

Speaking Out

Headlines like “Eva Amurri Cast in CBS Pilot” and “Gadhafi Will Fight Until He Spills His Last Drop of Blood” make my heart skip a beat. Both make me kind of fearful. One makes me want to hurry up and get a job (like Eva), while the other makes me worry that if the political structure in most of the Mideast fails, hooray for the protesters, but isn’t it a 50-50 shot that this could be worse for the safety of America? Photos featuring Eva’s shoes on a red carpet are splashed around for days after she achieves her pilot success. So, too, are images of the footwear that thousands of brave pioneers are waving at their own military and police forces (as well as at their televisions that are showing one leader after another threatening to continue to be their despot). Sadly, at times, Eva seems to have more followers on some social networking sites and get

much more attention at drinksand-dinner conversations around my ’hood than those whose lives are at stake. I’ve now realized that neither of these news stories is really doing me any good as I lie awake in bed catastrophisizing about them. I have my own pilot now — no thanks to worrying about keeping up with the Joneses or the Amurris, but perhaps due to that said theater degree — and still I feel nervous as every other actress I’ve ever met gets her own wannabe TV show. I’m nervous primarily because there is so much hoopla about it. Similarly, the happiness and relief I feel after watching so many hard-won success stories in Egypt can be immediately eviscerated into new fears when the Suez Canal is opened to Iran and Israel is feeling provoked. So basically, I’m thinking I have to put on a pair of shoes, walk away from my computer

and stop watching the news as it cycles because it is not informing me about something new every single hour of the day. Rather, the repetition of the same news told in an ever more slightly jarring way is stressing me out no end. This means both the fluff pieces considered headline news where I live and the actual headline news that I cannot take part in at all, no matter how much the liberal drama student in me would like to save the world. ________ Diane Farr is a humorist known for her roles in the TV shows “Californication,” “Numb3rs” and “Rescue Me,” and as the author of The Girl Code.

“I didn’t believe for a long time, but I saw two sightings that couldn’t be explained. Once on a trip from California and another time on the way to the Jeffco fairgrounds.”

“I believe in UFO sightings. Not that I’ve seen one, but there have been so many sightings over the years, it is hard not to believe in their existence.”

“It seems possible. It doesn’t seem impossible. I’ve never seen firm proof. Interesting possibilities of extraterrestrial life out there. I’ve known people who firmly believe.”

“I think the idea of UFOs is propagated by anti-Christian forces to try to reduce our beliefs. A tool of the devil. They’re hoaxes of some sort. Yes, they’re hard to explain.”

“It’s possible but highly unlikely. I have heard people say they’ve seen strange objects in the sky. I said, ‘OK.’ I don’t know if it involved drink, but they were adamant.”

“I’m a skeptic. I’ve never witnessed seeing one. I’m an agnostic. I only understand what I can see and what my brain tells me. They could exist, but I’m an agnostic on the subject.”

“I’m sort of a doubter. Makes you wonder, though. I’ve never seen one. But you can’t help but wonder from what you see and hear from others.”

“I think something is up there. I believe in them, I guess. Something is definitely up there. I’ve seen them on TV. Some form of life is out there.”

We need to heavily subsidize them with our tax dollars because they don’t make any economic sense. What’s worse, they are located where the air pollution will cause serious health problems for all of us in Clallam County, especially Port Angeles. And it is not true that emissions will go down. They will increase. In Port Angeles, decision-makers have bought into the Nippon project without asking hard questions, like these: Will Nippon guarantee that the mill will stay open for at least 10 years if they are allowed to build the plant? If not, can they shut down the mill, add more cooling to the power plant and keep it running (and poisoning us)? I’ll put my money on No. 2. Why? Asian competition and decreasing need for telephone books. If this happens, we get all the health problems and lose the mill jobs anyway. The Port Angeles City Council should act like smart businesspeople and get to the bottom of this so they can look out for

We asked Cutler for a response. Here it is: After Barb Frederick, executive director, and Greg Voyles, president, opened the Downtown Association meeting, the city was given an opportunity to provide background on the project. The city and the PADA have held a number of meetings for the membership over the past nine months to share information and options for accomplishing the project. Road Construction Northwest (RCNW) approached the city to have the project completed by May 30. Their concept was to work from approximately 9 a.m. until 10 p.m. five days a week. It should be noted that portions of the south travel lane will be closed to traffic, regardless of whether the work is performed at night or in the daytime.

I have no idea how many of these precious photos remain after the closing of the Port Townsend Swain’s, but wouldn’t it be a fabulously philanthropic gift if Glenda Swain Cable donated the remainder of her treasure — her father’s Steam Age collection — to the two historical societies and museums in Clallam and Jefferson Counties?

Real Reagan? PDN columnist Cal Thomas leads a parade of pundits in praising Ronald Reagan on the centennial of his birth, a case of collective amnesia [“Reagan Still Reagan; Obama Isn’t,” Feb. 3 PDN]. Reagan began his

political career in 1947 as a witness before the House Un-American Activities Committee. Reagan, then president of the Screen Actors Guild, testified that communist influence in Hollywood threatened national security. The “Hollywood Ten,” screenwriters of many Oscar-winning films, were blacklisted, opening a decade of witch-hunt hysteria. Many thousands lost their jobs and careers. A few months after he became president in 1981, Reagan fired 11,000 members of the Professional Air Traffic Controllers for daring to go on strike against conditions that endangered their health and the safety of the flying public. It was a green light for corporate union-busting that continues to this day. The aim was to drive wages in the U.S. down to the level of nations like Honduras. Reagan rammed through tax cuts for banks and corporations while eliminating federal regulations that protect the public interest. Reagan was at the helm during the Iran-contra

conspiracy. Marine Lt.-Col. Oliver North bragged that the Reagan Administration secretly sold weapons to Iran and used the profits, laundered through Swiss banks, to arm the contra bandits in Nicaragua in violation of a Congressional ban. Countless thousands died in “Reagan Doctrine” wars in Central America and Angola to make the world safe for corporate profiteers. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is an heir to this sad legacy. But public employees in the Badger State are giving the governor their answer: “Union busting is disgusting!” Timothy L. Wheeler, Sequim

‘Held hostage’ Americans wake up. Please write, call or e-mail all Congressional members and demand that existing capped oil wells be activated, off-shore drilling be resumed and oil drilling at the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge be started this year. It is imperative America stops sending billions of dollars overseas.

We are being held hostage by these countries. We’re insuring their prosperity, in many instances fattening their dictators’ bank accounts, and destroying our once great and powerful nation. And, “political correctness” has been overblown. We need to have the guts to say it as it is and quit pussyfooting around. The Caucasian American male is still footing most of the bills and getting chastised for doing so. America is still the land of opportunity. It should not be the land of free handouts to people who do not even attempt to provide for their families. Individuals who work hard, save their money and educate their kids should not have to share their hard-earned money with people who have the attitude that “the world owes me a living.” Educational opportunities are still readily available for all who want to improve their lot in life. Let’s restore America’s greatness and belief in God. Helga McGhee, Sequim

Man caught after mental hospital escape The Associated Press

LAKEWOOD — A man who calls himself the “Son of Satan” and is considered dangerous by law enforcement was captured Saturday after escaping from Western State Hospital, a newspaper reported. The Tacoma News Tribune reported that the inmate, Jonathan D. Wilson, was caught in Tacoma.

Wilson is delusional, paranoid and dangerous and had indicated he has been sanctioned to kill people at random, according to a Department of Corrections communication obtained by the News Tribune. Wilson left the facility Friday after being civilly committed following a conviction for second-degree arson.

Hospital spokeswoman Kris Flowers said the hospital did not classify what happened as an escape because the patient, although assigned to a locked ward, had not been criminally committed. Flowers said the man has “a history of dangerousness” but a clinical determination that he is not “imminently dangerous.”

OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — Hurricane Ridge snowplow crews made a dent in the 15- to 25-foot drifts in the parking lot at the snowplay area 17 miles south of Port Angeles on Saturday but were unable to clear it entirely, said a park ranger. “There were still lots of drifts in the parking lot,” said Janis Burger, interpretive ranger at Hurricane Ridge.

MLS Soccer


Second to one

Rivalry is born Neah Bay falls in school’s first title tilt on pitch Peninsula Daily News

SPOKANE — The Neah Bay boys basketball team peaked at the perfect time. Unfortunately for the Red Devils, it brought them just short of their first state title in school history. Neah Bay fell 55-50 to Sunnyside Christian in the Class 1B title game Saturday night at Veteran’s Memorial Arena. It was the Red Devils’ first appearance in a state championship game; one that ultimately ended on a sour note after Steven Broersma hit two foul shots with nine seconds to go to secure the win for the Knights (25-2 overall). “We had every intention of winning,” first-year Neah Bay coach Gerrad Brooks said. “We just came up a little short. “But the guys played great. They played great all year, and they stepped it up another level at this tournament.” Indeed, the same team that qualified for state as the No. 3 seed out of the 1B Tri-District somehow found a way to put it all together in Spokane. Rolling through the first two rounds with a 49-41 win over Rosalia on Thursday and dramatic 63-60 win over Colton on Friday, the Red Devils (23-6) earned a spot in the championship game against the Knights. Thanks to a record-setting performance from senior Drexler Doherty, who scored 16 of his gamehigh 31 points in the first quarter, they even had the defending state champs reeling up 16-9 six minutes into the game. “Like everybody else, he bought into the system and his offense came within our offensive sets,” Brooks said. “They just flat out couldn’t guard him. “Big players step up in big games and he definitely did that.”

Cascadia summit brings Northwest MLS teams together

Class 1B Tourney

By Tim Booth

The Associated Press

TUKWILA — There are still two months before the Cascadia rivalry gets its Major League Soccer debut on a national stage May 14 when Seattle hosts Portland. It’s already the most heated regional rivalry in the MLS. The smoke bombs set off by Portland’s “Timbers Army” during an exhibition win over the Seattle Sounders on Friday night proved that. “Nothing compares to this,” Seattle coach Sigi Schmid said. Supporters groups and coaches from Portland, Vancouver and Seattle gathered on Saturday as part of a three-day Cascadia Summit to discuss the first season of the Pacific Northwest trio playing a the highest level of soccer in North America. The joint event Saturday was part of a larger weekend gathering that included round-robin exhibition games between the three teams. It began Friday night with Portland’s 2-0 win over Seattle, continued Saturday with Portland and Vancouver playing and concludes today with the Whitecaps and Sounders. But for the supporters groups, it was an opportunity to address some of the concerns and issues that may flare up during the first season of the three cities facing each other. It’s the first time Vancouver, Portland and Seattle have had teams playing against each other at the top level of a professional sport since the Trail Blazers, Grizzlies and SuperSonics of the NBA in 2001 before the Grizzlies relocated to Memphis. “I think the opportunity between the three Northwest franchises is very unique and special. It’s special because there’s a tremendous rivalry here and then the interest and the intensity that that generates by the fans coming out is huge,” Schmid said. “But I think we also have the responsibility, all of us teams in the Northwest, to make sure the rivalry is on the field and is what it is. “We don’t ever want to overstep those areas and turn the rivalry into something that it should not be or something that we’d be embarrassed to have show up.”

Safety concerns? Safety and security is among the chief concerns for fans of the three teams traveling to the opposing cities. The management of Portland, Seattle and Vancouver agreed to set aside 500 seats for visiting fans for the games this season. Among the stipulations is those fans will be seated in one, secured area of the stadium in an attempt to keep any fan incidents from popping up. “I want anyone who comes to PGE Park to be treated as a guest in a respectful way,” said Jeremy Wright from Portland’s Timbers Army. Keith Hodo, co-president of the Emerald City Supporters, said the goal is to have the same atmosphere the three cities have become known for having at home matches, but hopefully without any major incidents. “All we can do is prepare. That’s all you can do because if you fail to prepare that’s when things can possibly go wrong,” Hodo said. “Inevitably something might happen, but hopefully it’s something small,” he added. The small number of available, secure tickets for the road games has some fans concerned, but was the number the three franchises were able to agree on. Seattle has the largest stadium; Portland the smallest. But Timbers owner Merritt Paulson said if the demand from the traveling fans is there, the teams may revisit the setup for future seasons. “At some point there has to be a cap so it’s got to be realistic,” Paulson said. “But at least show us this first year that there is that excess demand. Nothing is written in stone.” Seattle and Portland will get the national stage for the first time on May 14 with the return match in Portland on July 10. Turn

Grinnell medals in Chile







Pirate men survive Peninsula tops Yakima, moves on at NWAACCs

Peninsula Daily News

CONCEPCION, Chile — Port Angeles skeet shooter Jaiden Grinnell made a mark on the international stage this weekend. Grinnell captured a bronze medal at an ISSF Shotgun World Cup event in Concepcion, Chile Grinnell on Friday. Tied with four other shooters after the final round of shooting, Grinnell had to earn her hardware in a shoot-out. The 19-year-old shooter hit 21 of 24 targets in that round to top out all but one of those shooters and finish third. “Fantastic job by Grinnell for her first ISSF World Cup medal,” U.S. national coach Bret Erickson said in a news release.

The Knights took control with a 13-3 run to end the second quarter. They then opened a 36-29 lead midway through the third quarter on Alex Brouwer’s shot in the lane. Neah Bay answered with six straight points and trailed 36-35 after Michael Dulik’s move inside with 2:25 left in the frame. The Red Devils managed to tie the game at 40-all midway through the fourth quarter, but could never grab a lead. Broersma scored 11 of his 24 points in the final six minutes, helping the Knights win their fourth title in five years. Leading 53-50 with 11 seconds left, Sunnyside Christian missed the front end of a one-and-one, but Broersma grabbed the rebound, was fouled and sank both foul shots to put the game out of reach.

Peninsula College guard Sammeon Waller drives to the hoop during Saturday’s game against Yakima Valley in the first round of the NWAACC tournament.

KENNEWICK — It wasn’t pretty, but Peninsula College men’s basketball coach Lance Von Vogt will take it. Mitrell Clark came up with two steals and sank 4 of 4 free throws in the final minute to vault the Pirates to a 58-54 victory over Yakima Valley in the first round of the NWAACC tournament on Saturday. Peninsula (19-7 overall) overcame some poor free-throw shooting and a few offensive lapses to reach the second round for the second time in five years. Next up is a quarterfinal matchup with top-ranked Tacoma (24-2) today at 4 p.m. “Survive and advance in the tournament bracket, that’s what we did,” said Von Vogt, in his first year with the Pirates. “The sign of a good team is playing through adversity and playing well enough to win when you’re not playing your best.” Turn

Girls: Take 4th Continued from B1

The Associated Press

Neah Bay players react Saturday after they lost the boys’ Class 1B basketball championship to Sunnyside Christian in Spokane.

Boys: Finish 2nd in Class 1B Continued from B1 The 6-foot-6 senior, who was 9-of-12 from the floor, also pulled down 10 rebounds. “They made a few good defensive plays down the stretch that really killed us,” said Doherty, whose 31-point night was a 1B tournament record. “It sucks that we came so close to wining and lost. It was still a good thing for us, though. It was more of an accomplishment than a disappointment. “Nobody in Neah Bay has ever came that close [to a state title]. We got there, and we were that close to winning it, but we came up a little short.” The Neah Bay faithful packed their half of Veteran’s Memorial Arena by the time Saturday’s game started. After the Red Devils beat Colton on Friday, dozens flew out to Spokane the next day just so they could witness a possible championship.

Doherty sank a pair of 3-pointers to end a third quarter that saw the Red Devils turn a 32-28 deficit into a 46-44 lead. He ended up netting 11 of his 23 points in the second half and hit a free throw with 7.7 seconds remaining to help clinch the win. Colton tied the game several times in the fourth thanks in large part to Dustin Patchen, who had 11 of his game-high 31 points in the final frame. Zeke Greene added 11 points and seven rebounds for Neah Bay, which had just four turnovers in the win. “All the credit goes to God and them boys,” Brooks said. “They bought into a system that they never ran before. They just trusted me enough to just listen to what I have to say and discipline their game. Friday night “This is the fruit of it.” Neah Bay graduates six The Red Devils certainly had to earn that runner-up seniors from this year’s trophy in Friday’s semifinal team, including Doherty, Jimmy Jimmicum, Tony against Colton.

The closest any other Neah Bay team had gotten to a state title was the 1986 squad, which made the semifinals before losing to Reardan and eventually placing sixth. The best finish prior to this year’s runner-up placement was the 2006 squad’s fourth-place showing. “We were disappointed because we went in fully confident that we could beat [Sunnyside], and we had them on the ropes for most of the game,” Brooks said. “There was just a couple of instances where the ball didn’t bounce our way. It’s a bit disheartening, but at the same time they are proud of how well they did. “They did something that no team in their school’s history has done, and they are definitely proud of that.”

DeBari, Izak Manuel, Thomas Lawrence and Eli Monette. They finish the season as the North Olympic League champions and the secondbest team in 1B. “I’m proud of my teammates and glad we could accomplish this for everybody back home,” Doherty said. “I was just proud of everybody on our team that we played so well here. It was an awesome thing to be part of.” Neah Bay 63, Colton 60 Neah Bay Colton

Pirates: Advance to 2nd round “We caused 22 turnovers. We contested every shot. We made baskets when we needed to, and we made plays when we needed to against a very good Yakima team.” The biggest plays came in the final 28.6 seconds, when Clark turned a 54-54 tie into a four-point Pirate win. After leading for most of the second half, Peninsula’s Thad Vinson was whistled for an intentional offensive foul in the final minute. That resulted in a pair of free throws for the Yaks — they made 1 of 2 to tie the game — and another offensive possession. With the score knotted at 54 and Yakima threatening to go ahead, Clark picked off a Yaks pass from the top of Peninsula’s trapping 1-3-1 zone and was fouled. He made both free throws, then proceeded to come up with another steal on the next play. The sophomore guard hit both free throws again to seal the game and put Peninsula at 5 of 14 from the charity stripe on the night. “Our free-throw shooting was horrendous,” Von Vogt said. “Every time we had a lead with had an opportunity at the free-throw line we didn’t cash in. “Clark just made two great plays, just used his quickness and made steals.” DeShaun Freeman led the way for Peninsula, scoring 19 points and pulling down 13 boards for the win. Sammeon Waller sunk 16 points while Clark had 10 and Vinson seven. Peninsula hit 48.1 percent of its shots from the field, while limiting Yakima to 33.3 percent shooting.

Lakes pulls out win for 3A title Lancers claim State Roundup first state crown The Associated Press

TACOMA — Nate Guy had 22 points and 12 rebounds, Issac Winston added 19 points and Lakes took advantage of a big third quarter run to win its first Class 3A boys state championship, 71-56 over Bellevue on Saturday night. Zach Banner had 15 points and eight rebounds for Lakes (25-3). Kendrick VanAckeren’s layup pulled Bellevue (24-6) back within two midway through the third quarter before Lakes went on its decisive run. After baskets by Guy and Banner extended the lead to 45-38, Guy drilled a 3-pointer from the right wing and Carl Flamer added another from the left corner to give the Lancers a commanding 51-38 lead. Nate Sikma tried everything he could to keep Bellevue in the game, finishing with 28 points.

Continued from B1

Lewis and Clark took command early in the fourth, opening the frame with an 8-0 run to retake the lead. Julia Moravec hit 3 of 4 free throws and a layup that pushed the lead to 50-45 with just over two minutes to play.

“These girls are pretty determined. It was nice to see all of them step up and play together, especially our game against Selkirk. “It was kind of a close game all around, and instead of folding . . . they were able to play together and keep each other’s spirits up.” The Red Devils (25-2 overall) thumped Mary M. Knight 54-29 in a loser-out consolation game Friday before coming back with the narrow win over Selkirk (21-10) the next day. “The girls were fired up about the boys [reaching the 1B finals] the night before, so that really got them going. They wanted it too,” Halttunen said. “They wanted the fourthplace [trophy].” Sisters Cherish Moss and Cierra Moss combined for 26 points in Saturday’s win over Selkirk, with the former scoring 14 and the latter 12. Courtney Winck added 13 points for a Neah Bay team that led by as many as 13 after going up 24-11 in the second quarter. Selkirk closed out the frame on a 10-4 run, then slowly inched its way back in the third and fourth, eventually taking a 50-48 lead with 2:45 left in the game. The Neah Bay girls, who forced 26 turnovers and had just 15 of their own, didn’t allow a single point the rest of the way. Then Murner came through with the clutch shot — her first in seven attempts — with 1:01 to go. The Red Devils held on from there. “It just felt good this game,” Halttunen said. “It was just an exciting game, and it was good to see the girls with that intensity”

Saturday’s game against Mary M. Knight wasn’t nearly as tight. Neah Bay jumped out to a 23-6 lead after one quarter and never looked back. The Red Devils were fueled by an epic performance from junior Rebecca Thompson, who hit 8 of 12 field goal attempts and 8 of 8 free throws for 27 points. The 5-foot-8 junior also snagged seven rebounds and dished out three assists in a game that was never in doubt. Much of that could also be attributed to a strong defensive effort that limited Mary M. Knight to 15 percent shooting. Such defensive dominance was the hallmark of a team that finished undefeated in North Olympic League play for a third year in a row and claimed a 1B Tri-District title. With just two seniors leaving after this season — Synon Allen and Faith Tyler — the Red Devils likely aren’t done yet. “The girls had goals that they wanted to set: league champs, district champs . . . placing higher than they did before [at state],” Halttunen said. “[We’re] proud of them, the things that they have accomplished this season.”

Dawgs run out of time UW handed crushing loss by Southern Cal By Tim Booth

The Associated Press

SEATTLE — It took Jio Fontan and his Southern California teammates less than 48 hours to regroup and head into the Pac-10 Conference tournament as possibly the hottest team in the league. Washington? There’s only some more headscratching about just how good the preseason league favorites are going into the postseason. Fontan slipped his way through Washington’s defense for 20 points, Nikola Vucevic added 19 points and 10 rebounds and USC held off Washington’s second-half charge for a 62-60 win on Saturday night, the Trojans’ fifth win in six games to close the regular season. USC (18-13, 10-8) won for the second straight year in Seattle and rebounded from Thursday night’s disappointing loss at Washington State, where Vucevic called the Trojans’ first-half effort “soft and lazy.” The Trojans will take the No. 4 seed into next week’s conference tournament and face fifth-seeded California in the quarterfinals. “We kind of feel like we let ourselves down, me as the point guard definitely feel like we let our team down in the game Thursday,” Fontan said.

“You saw it today. I wanted to come out aggressive offensively and make a statement from the start.” The Trojans certainly did that. Washington never led and was forced to rally from deficits of 15 in the first half and 14 early in the second half. The Huskies never got closer than three, adding another layer of debate to the Huskies’ NCAA tournament prospects. Even before the Huskies took the floor, they were locked into the third-seed in the Pac-10 tournament in Los Angeles. And their first-round opponent will be a familiar one — rival Washington State, who beat the Huskies 80-69 in Seattle on Feb. 27.

The Huskies made a season-low two 3-pointers and went more than 11 minutes of the second half with just one field goal made, a dunk by Matthew Bryan-Amaning. But it was the Trojans

dictating every part of this victory, from the pace to the style. Alex Stephenson was dominant inside, finishing with 11 points and 14 rebounds. The Trojans were 19 of 25 at the free-throw line, making their first 12 attempts. USC packed in defensively and forced Washington to the perimeter. And when the Huskies attempted a 3, there was usually a hand in the shooter’s face. “We did a great job on defense in the first half,” Vucevic said. “We really played well and that got us some easy baskets on the other end.” USC put Washington behind from the start, making its first six shots and leading by as many as 15 in the first half on Maurice

Cougars let one slip Undermanned WSU sees lead disappear in OT loss The Associated Press

PULLMAN — Reeves Nelson scored 23 points, and Malcolm Lee hit four free throws in the closing seconds of overtime to lift UCLA to a 58-54 victory over wounded Washington State on Saturday. Arizona’s victory earlier in the day prevented UCLA (22-9, 13-5 Pac-10) from having a chance to tie the Wildcats for the Pac-10 title. Washington State (1911, 9-9) played without suspended star Klay Thompson and injured point guard Reggie Moore (ankle). But it nearly managed to break a home losing streak to UCLA that now stands at 18. Cougars coach Ken Bone said he will decide in the next few days if Thompson, the Pac-10’s leading scorer at 21 points per game, will play in next week’s conference tournament. He was suspended after being cited for marijuana possession Thursday. UCLA coach Ben Howland warned his team that the Cougars were likely to come out strong. “Games like this are tough,” Howland said. “They banded together in adversity.” Faisal Aden hit a 3-pointer to tie the game at 54 with 1:17 left. The Bruins turned it over on a shot clock violation, but the Cougars gave it right back, and Lee was fouled while going for a layup with 6.9 seconds left. He made both for a 56-54 lead. Washington State turned over the ball on the inbounds play and had to foul. Lee made both shots for the final points. Thompson walked onto

the floor in street clothes just before tipoff and took the microphone. He apologized to fans in a brief statement. “I made a mistake,” Thompson said to the roaring crowd, then was embraced by teammates and sat on the end of the bench for the game. Of Thompson’s statement, Bone said, “It was something he wanted to do. I think it came from the heart.” Nelson made 10 of his 13 shots. Lee finished with 11 points, making all seven of his free throws. Bone said the loss of two of his team’s best players meant the remaining players played a lot of minutes. “We were pretty effective early on,” said Bone said, whose team led 32-19 at halftime. “We were not as effective in the second half, when I think our legs were tired.” Aden played 42 minutes and sank just four of 17 shots. He missed a key free throw at the end of regulation that might have given WSU the win. “It’s hard for him to go 42 minutes,” Bone said of the slender Aden. Brock Motum led WSU with 15 points, while Aden finished with 14. At halftime, Howland said he warned his team that its NCAA tournament hopes were at stake. “I put it on the shoulders of my team, and they raised their intensity defensively,” Howland said. The Bruins opened the second half with an 11-1 run to get within 33-30 on Lee’s basket. Honeycutt’s 3-pointer for UCLA tied the game at 35. The score was tied at 48 at the end of regulation.

Grinnell: 4th

Then, the Huskies forced a turnover as Thomas, Venoy Overton and Bryan-Amaning all dove for the loose ball, causing Romar to stomp his foot on the floor four times in approval. That was part of a 14-4 spurt by the Huskies, who, after scoring six straight at the free-throw line, were within 49-45 with 7:38 left. But Fontan hit a pair of free throws, and Stephenson followed Fontan’s missed 3-pointer to get the lead back to eight. Washington could not make it a one-possession game until Scott Suggs’ tipin with 2 seconds left for the final margin. Overton had 15 points, five rebounds and four assists. “We’re just not doing it,” Overton said.

Our Peninsula The Music Man c



Andy Mackie hasn’t slowed down, still brings music to kids EDITOR’S NOTE — A Scottish-born former cowboy who lived in Chimacum and Quilcene, Andy Mackie shared his love of music with thousands of students in Jefferson and Clallam County schools. Mackie not only taught students how to play and enjoy music, he taught them how to make instruments — and found financial support for his nonprofit Andy Mackie Music Foundation to supply thousands of instruments to youths and also provide college music scholarships. Last year, he moved to the Jackson, Mich., area to be near a daughter. But the move was been anything but a retirement. The Music Man of the North Olympic Peninsula is now the Music Man of Michigan. By Bob Wheaton

Jackson (Mich.) Citizen Patriot

CONCORD, Mich. — When Andy Mackie is teaching children to play “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” on the harmonica, he forgets the pain. “I stopped buying heart medicine, and I started buying harmonicas,” Mackie told fifth-graders at Concord Elementary School recently. “You guys are my medicine, OK? So just do your best, kids.” Mackie, 72, who moved to Concord, Mich., from Jefferson County in September, has taught close to 20,000 children to play the harmonica and handed out more than 20,000 of the instruments since he made a lifechanging decision 11 years ago. At the time, he was taking 15 heart medications, spending about $750 per month. The side effects made him miserable, and he was in and out of the hospital.

Do something worthwhile Mackie wanted to do something worthwhile before he died. The lifelong musician decided his life’s mission would be to bring music to children. “The only way I could buy instruments was not paying for my medication,” he said. “I just said: ‘God, I’m in your hands.’ I went, like, 10 years without taking even an aspirin.” Now, his Andy Mackie Music Foundation has reached children in 24 countries around the world, he said.

On a January morning, Mackie sat in a chair in the front of a second-grade classroom at Concord Elementary School. With deep lines in his face and unkempt gray hair, he appeared older than his 72 years. He held a harmonica to his mouth with his left hand and gripped a pointer in his right hand so he could touch numbers that instructed the children how to play. “The red is [blow] out; the blue is in,” he told them, speaking with a Scottish accent. After the group played “Twinkle, Twinkle” together, Mackie invited students to play solos. “It’s hard to play in front of people, children,” he said. “I had to play in front of 80,000 people one time, so I was nervous — I still get nervous.” Mackie and his now-deceased wife toured with country star Dottie West, also performing with artists such as Johnny Cash. Mackie sang and played the guitar and harmonica. Mackie was born in Scotland in 1938. Katie Rausch (3)/Jackson (Mich.) Citizen Patriot He first played the harmonica After 10 heart surgeries and being prescribed several accompanying medications, at age 4½.

Musical tradition “Whenever we would go to someone’s home back in Scotland, everybody would pull out an instrument and play,” he said. Mackie also plays the fiddle, mandolin and accordion. He came to the United States after high school to work on the Ohio cattle farm of famed financier Cyrus Eaton. Later, Mackie moved to Michigan to work on a farm in Williamston. He went to Washington in the mid-1980s to train racing horses, but that career ended when a thoroughbred jumped on top of him, breaking every disk in his neck. Mackie had the first of a halfdozen heart attacks about 20 years ago. He now has 15 stents in his heart, with the most recent being placed there in 2009 during his 10th heart procedure. He did start taking medication again after that. “I need open-heart surgery,” he said. “I’m so bad that I’d never live through it. I live with a lot of chest pains. I try to ignore them and make every day count. “If I sat around and just felt

Andy Mackie chose to stop taking them and use the money to buy harmonicas for schools. It’s been more than a decade since then, and Mackie has given away more than 20,000 harmonicas and started the Andy Mackie Music Foundation to continue his work.

sorry for myself, I’d be a mean old man.” That’s the last term that Mackie’s students would learn to describe their kindly volunteer teacher, who mixes in life lessons with music instructions. “He’s really fun to work with,” said Jaislyn Jorgensen, 10, a fifth-grader at Concord Elementary. “He’s very nice.” Earlier in the class, Jaislyn played a “Twinkle, Twinkle” solo. “Good job,” Mackie told her. “When you made a mistake, you stopped and found the right note. That means this is working,” he said, pointing to his head.

Music and life Mackie believes music can teach children much about life. “They just feel better,” he said. “I mean, the music feeds their souls. I think it keeps them out of trouble.” He offered this advice to the young harmonica-players in Concord: “All you’ve got to do, children, is do it enough that you can do it with your eyes closed . . . Remem-

ber what I told you? Children that play music get better grades in school.” Darrius Rivera, 10, a fifthgrader at Concord, also got a shot to play a solo. “It’s been fun because if you mess up, you get another shot at it,” Darrius said. “It’s not like other things, when you mess up, you’re out — like games.” Darrius enjoys working with Mackie. “We’re keeping him alive instead of his medicine,” he said. Mackie tries to keep his instructions simple. Too often, books and videos about playing the harmonica are too complicated for young people, he said. Mackie also teaches children to make instruments.

‘Mackie Music Stick’ He’s been visiting wood shop students at Homer High School to help them make a string instrument that he calls a “Mackie Music Stick.” It’s similar to Martin back-

pack guitars, which are mini-guitars that can be taken on camping trips. He makes a one-string — which he says is ideal for teaching kindergartners to play a string instrument — a threestring and a six-string. Woodshop teacher Ben Woodring said students love making the instruments because they think they’re cool. “I can teach somebody to use a table saw, but if they’re not doing something that matters to them, they don’t care as much about the level of detail,” he said.

An inspiration Homer High School Principal Tom Salow said Mackie inspired him when he came to the school to ask about working with students there. “It meant a lot to me just to hear his story and what he’s been through,” Salow said. “He just showed up, made his way up to the office. I didn’t know him from anybody.” Turn

Colorful, exotic birds prevalent on islands HAWAII’S BIRDS, BOTH the endemic and introduced species, are for the most part colorful. Whether you are birding the lowland areas where introduced birds make up the bird population or seeking out endemics at the higher elevations, the birding is never boring. You don’t have to undertake a trek to the volcano areas to enjoy birding the Big Island, but if you want to see the native Hawaiian birds, you do. The drive from Kona to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and Kilauea volcano is a beautiful one, but to do it in one day and have time to enjoy the habitats around the rim makes for a long and tiring day. On this trip, we decided to spend two nights in the village of Volcano. It is just outside the park, and Hawaiian honeycreepers, like the apapane, call nonstop. Last year, we learned of a new birding area in this vicinity, and that prompted the stay at Volcano Village. Just two or three miles from the village and beyond the entrance to the park and the Visitor Center, continue on to the Kipuka Puaulu (Bird Park)

The large Kalij pheasant’s population appears to have exploded in the area we were birding, and they seemed almost tame. It was a new experience to follow a trail deep in the woods and have four or five of these exotic birds trail-

ing after us. The bands on their legs indicated they have had some contact with people, and we’d love to know the “rest of the story.” The forest trail in Bird Park near Volcano Village is easy to get to and an easy stroll. An early-morning start is important, as that’s when the bird activity is the best. Later in the day, the lighting makes

birding much more difficult. If a trip to this island is in future plans, put this area on your places-to-see list and make sure you take a camera!

Small items can be deadly to pets DEAR ABBY: In our family, pets are irreplaceable, full-fledged, beloved members. One of them was a beautiful, very affectionate cat we had rescued as an abandoned kitten. Tragically, he didn’t make it through an operation we hoped would save his life. His death was a needless accident, and we are writing this in the hope that you will print it to warn other readers so no other animals will die in a similar fashion. On the day before he died, he suddenly stopped eating and drinking. He became lethargic and vomited several times. Our vet diagnosed him with a bowel obstruction. Apparently, he had eaten a piece of a palm from Palm Sunday. Unable to pass through

We have all asked her please not to, but she’s the type who, if you tell her she’s wrong, insists she’s always right. According to her, flossing one’s teeth at the table is acceptable. She’s in her 60s, and she’s a representative for our AARP group, which means she attends a great many functions. There has been a lot of talk about this, and it has made a lot of people uncomfortable. She reads your column, as we all do. So please address this subject.

Thank you. Grossed Out in Massachusetts Dear Grossed Out: With pleasure! Flossing one’s teeth should be done in private in the powder room. Under no circumstances is it proper to do it at the dinner table. For her to insist upon doing it in spite of being told it makes others uncomfortable is extremely rude, so tell her to chew on that!

Congress takes up change in patent law By Jim Abrams

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON— The patent system hasn’t changed much since 1952, when Sony was coming out with its first pocket-size transistor radio, and bar codes and Mr. Potato Head were among the inventions patented. Now, after years of trying, Congress may be about to do something about that. The Senate is taking up the Patent Reform Act, which would significantly overhaul a 1952 law and, supporters say, bring the patent system in line with 21st-century technology of biogenetics and artificial intelligence. Congress has been trying for well over a decade to rewrite patent law, only to be thwarted by the many interested parties — multinational corporations and small-scale inventors, pharmaceuticals and Silicon Valley companies — pulling in different directions. Prospects for passing a bill now, however, are promising. The Senate bill is sponsored by Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., Hatch and a top Republican on the panel, Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa. The committee voted 15-0 in early February to send the legislation to the full Senate. The overhaul is long overdue. It now takes the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office about three years to process a patent application. There are about 1.2 million applications pending — 700,000 awaiting consideration and another 500,000 somewhere in the process. The patent office said it received about 483,000 applications in 2009 and granted about 192,000 patents. “Hundreds of thousands of patent applications are stalled” at the patent office, Leahy said. “Among those is the appli-

cation for the next great invention.” The most sweeping, and controversial, change is the transition from a first-toinvent application system to a first-to-file system that is used by every other industrialized nation but has been opposed by independent inventors. It comes with an enhanced grace period to protect inventors who publicly disclose their inventions before seeking patents. Companies or individuals seeking patents in multiple countries are confronted by a different set of rules in this country, said Bill Mashek of Coalition for 21st Century Patent Reform, a group that represents big companies like General Electric, Pfizer and 3M. “It puts us at a disadvantage globally.” The bill would create a nine-month “first window” post-grant procedure to allow challenges to patents that should not have been issued and to cut down on litigation and harassment of patent owners by improving the review system for challenges. It provides more certainty to damage calculations. It also gives the patent office authority to set its own fees at a level that will give it enough funds to reduce its backlog of applications. It requires that smaller businesses continue to get a 50 percent reduction in fees and creates a new “microentity” class — with a 75 percent reduction — for independent inventors who have not been named on five or more previously filed applications and have gross incomes not exceeding 2.5 times the average. The standard fee for filing a patent is now $1,090, with additional maintenance fees over the life of the patent. In a change from current law, tax strategies could not be patented. Leahy’s office lists a diverse group of supporters,

Death and Memorial Notice Harold A. Mallory July 1, 1941 February 24, 2011 Mr. Harold A. Mallory, 65, of Port Angeles, passed away February 24, 2011, of age related causes. He was born on July 1, 1941, to Phillip A. and Louise (Kura) Mallory in Port Angeles. Mr. Mallory worked as a shake sawyer. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, and reloading ammo. He is survived by his companion, Sharon Bedinger; brother, Norman Mallory; niece, Marcella Mallory; and

Mr. Mallory nephew, Michael Mallory. A memorial service will be held by family in spring 2011.

including major drug companies, IBM, the AFL-CIO, the Association of American Universities, Caterpillar and USPIRG. One reason supporters are optimistic about the bill’s prospects this year is that courts have dealt with some of the more contentious issues involving lawsuits and damage awards. “When we started these efforts many years ago, we faced a grim landscape where patent lawsuits threatened to stifle the pace of innovation and shut down our factories,” David Simon, associate general counsel for Intel Corp., told the House Judiciary Committee. “Today, the scenario has changed drastically.” Testifying in February on behalf of the Coalition for Patent Fairness, a group of high-tech companies, Simon credited the change to Supreme Court and other federal court rulings dealing with such practices as venue shopping where litigants sued in courts known for handing out large damage awards. Simon’s coalition, however, has not endorsed the Senate bill. In a statement, it said the bill still needs to do more “to lessen the growing burden of abusive and unjustified patent infringement claims.”

Death and Memorial Notice Maxwell Kay Barnard March 8, 1946 February 1, 2011 Maxwell Kay Barnard was born March 8, 1946, to Carolyn and Jack in Hackensack, New Jersey. Piano lessons started when he was 4. His father was an engineer and worked at Boeing for many years. Max worked there for eight years as well, and purchased a house in Seattle, Washington. He arrived in Port Townsend in the mid-’70s, started a business designing computers and programming languages and learning the Japanese board game, Go. He was also working on three patents: a vertical axis windmill, a programming language and an electric hybrid automobile. He actively worked on producing his three patents, especially

Mr. Barnard the windmill. He co-wrote a book with Frank Herbert, originally titled Without Me You’re Nothing, a computer primer published in 1980. Max moved to Portland, Oregon; then Seattle when his mother died in 1982; then back to Port Townsend in 1986. His local involvements include being a board

member of the Food Co-op and the Jefferson County Transit Advisory Board, freelance writer for the Peninsula Daily News, benefit piano concerts and a CD recording. His concert grand piano lives on at the Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. Max leaves us a legacy of achievements and lessons. He died in Port Townsend on February 1, 2011, of cutaneous lymphoma. Come and share your memories of Max May 1, 2011, 1 p.m. at the Quilcene Cemetery.

Death and Memorial Notice Louise Rita Mendive Sadilek January 21, 1927 February 27, 2011 Louise was born in Battle Mountain, Nevada, on January 21, 1927, and died peacefully at home in Clallam Bay, surrounded by family, on February 27, 2011. She was the daughter of Basque immigrants and proud of her cultural heritage, and had lifelong empathy and compassion for immigrants and newcomers. Her early life was spent sheep and cattle ranching in rural Nevada; it was there that she met her husband, Ken. They continued ranching until moving to Clallam Bay in 1966, where she worked seasonally as a waitress, then a bookkeeper. She was a member of St. Thomas Catholic Church and volunteered on the Election Board and as an EMT. Eventually they purchased farm and timberland and were able to enjoy those endeavors for many years, supplying their family and friends with beef and wood. Together they worked dili-

Mrs. Sadilek gently to practice conscientious land management. Under the Washington State Conservation Program, they were awarded Wildlife Habitat Farm of the year in 2003 and 2006. Louise’s passion for cattle remained until death and brought her many years of contentment. She was a devoted wife, mother, and proud grandmother. She was preceded in death by her parents, Prudencio and Paula Mendive; brothers, John, Joe, Prudencio Jr., Raymond and Celestino. She is survived by her

husband of 62 years, Ken Sadilek; sister Pauline Beitia; daughters and spouses Laurel (Larry) Burtness, Linda (Russ) Mellon, Loretta (Juan) Bascaran; foster children Lita (Ed) Piffero and Jim (Danielle) Yroz; grandchildren Tamara, Corby (Trang), Ben (Jessica), Justin, Andy, and Alex; and great-grandchildren Kaleo, Kali, and Layla. Perhaps her greatest life achievement was the demonstration to her family of the value of faith for guidance and comfort in the journey of life. She burned a lot of candles praying for all of us. A memorial service is planned at St. Thomas Catholic Church in Clallam Bay on March 12, 2011, with Rosary to be said at 11:30 a.m., followed by Mass, then a Celebration of Life gathering at the Lions Club, starting at approximately 1:30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations are requested to Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County, P.O. Box 2014, Port Angeles, WA 98362. A special thanks to Mike, Dawn, Nancy and Tone of Assured Hospice.

Governor, ferry workers OK $10M in reductions Peninsula Daily News news services

OLYMPIA — State ferryworkers unions have reached a tentative deal with the state that could save the cash-strapped ferry system $10 million a year by bringing their labor contracts more in line with those of other state workers. About a third of the yearly savings — $3.4 million — would come from pay reductions, similar to the 3 percent pay cuts other state workers agreed to in December. Another $6.6 million would come from trimming other labor costs. “These agreements address the concerns that have been raised publicly and in the Legislature over the past year,” said Gov. Chris Gregoire during a news conference Friday. “They represent real commitment to public service by those who want our ferry system to be the best in the world.” She said an additional $10 million in savings over the next two years has been identified, money that would come from reducing the ranks of management, cutting overhead and streamlining operations. The labor contracts need to be ratified by the ferry-union members. It is hoped that will happen by the end of the month, said Tim Saffle, a representative for the International Organization of Master, Mates and Pilots, one of the unions representing the state’s ferry workers. The governor, along with union

Citizens panel: Restart SoundRunner April 18 Peninsula Daily News news services

KINGSTON — SoundRunner passenger-only ferry service should resume April 18 with one commuter round trip per day, a citizens advisory committee told Port of Kingston commissioners. Service was suspended Nov. 18 after just one month because of a blown engine to the main boat, the Spirit of Kingston, and boarding-ramp concerns with the backup vessel, Victoria Express, a former foot ferry that served the Port Angeles-Victoria, B.C., route. Unusually bad weather also forced some trips to be canceled. The citizens group was formed in mid-January to recommend how to proceed, if at all. It concluded that foot-ferry service between Kingston and downtown Seattle could work, provided the port chips in some money. The committee outlined a conservative plan, starting where the service left off with

about 30 round-trip passengers per day at $13.50 each — $14 full fare with discounts for frequent users — and growing by five customers per month. The schedule would aim to get commuters to work by 8 a.m. and be available when they got off at 5 p.m. The group recommended that the port buy a bus for backup in case the boats can’t sail and that service be yearround. The commissioners had considered not running during the winter. “The issue here is to establish reliability in our customers’ minds,” committee Chairman Jerry Kirschner said during a special port meeting last week. “The worst thing we can do is say to our customers we’re going to go for a short time and then stop.” Port Commissioners Bissonette, Pete DeBoer and Tom Coultas said they would need time to digest the recommendations and would get back to the committee.

PA-built dive-assist boat to join 5th Fleet ARMSTRONG MARINE, THE aluminum boat fabricator located between Port Angeles and Sequim known primarily for its expertise in designing and building aluminum catamarans for use by recreational mariners and commercial fisherman alike, recently launched a 50-foot mono-hull vessel. According to Joe Beck of Armstrong Marine, the boat, which is one of three the company is building for the Navy, is a dive-assist boat that will be used as a platform to make in-water repairs to fast-attack submarines and guided-missile submarines attached to the 5th Fleet. The boat has what appears to be a push bar protruding from the bow — conceptually similar to what the State Patrol has on the front of its vehicles — that is lined with rubber. The boat’s chine — where the sides and bottom of the boat meet — also has large rubber bumpers. All of this rubber is an aid in guarding against the boat banging against and damaging the hull of a submarine when engaged in repair work. Joe said that once the dive-assist boat completes her sea trials, she will be sent to the USS Emory S. Land (AS-39), which is in her new home port of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean. The Emory S. Land is a 649-foot submarine tender that is one of two Military Sealift Command ships that have a hybrid crew of civil-service mariners and uniformed Navy personnel that is commanded by a Navy captain. The ship is a floating warehouse of food, fuel, repair parts and torpedoes from which submarines draw during replenishment at sea or when moored. Onboard Emory S. Land, there are 53 specialized machine and fabricating shops that enable her complement of 85 officers and 1,200 civilian and enlisted personnel to make repairs to submarines while under way or in port.

cents. Stockholders aren’t the only ones taking a hit. The U.S. Treasury, which infused $39 million of TARP bailout funds into Cascade, will be repaid just $16.25 million by Opus. Cascade was the oldest independent community bank in Snohomish County, dating back to 1916. Like Everett-based Frontier Bank and City Bank of Lynnwood, both taken over by regulators last year, Cascade was brought low primarily by real estate loans that went bad as Snohomish County’s development boom turned to bust.

Growth plans Opus is a privately owned bank that just added $460 million in new capital and hopes to create a “regional super bank” in the West, said Carol Nelson, president and chief executive of Cascade. “We’re looking at Cascade as the platform for growth in Washington,” she

said. Nelson will become president of the Washington region for Opus. Cascade Financial had operated since July under a regulatory mandate to bolster Cascade Bank’s capital. As of year-end, the bank was $68 million short of the minimum requirements.

All options considered Nelson said Cascade had tried raising money from private equity funds or a stock offering, and the board agreed to the deal “after carefully considering all options.” Compared with Cascade Financial’s assets of $1.5 billion and deposits of $1.1 billion at year-end, Opus has $693.5 million in assets and $275.3 million in deposits. Opus has five branches, all in Southern California. Opus officials said the bank will retain all of Cascade’s 22 Puget Sound-area branches — none are in Jefferson or Clallam counties — and its 218 employees.

Same-sex unions cross borders? House OKs recognition of other-state marriages Peninsula Daily News news services

OLYMPIA — The state House voted 58-39 to approve a bill to recognize same-sex marriages from out of state as valid domestic partnerships in Washington. The bill sponsor, Rep. Laurie Jinkins, D-Tacoma, said she wants to correct what she sees as the unjust exclusion of same-sex marriages from protections for state-registered domestic partnerships. “This bill is about fairness for all families,” Jinkins said. “Right now, there’s a hole in the law.” In 2009, voters moved to extend to domestic partnerships all the rights and protections granted to marriages. Current law recognizes out-of-state domestic partnerships and civil unions but excludes same-sex marriage from that recognition. Jinkins said her bill would correct that disparity. Opponents argued that the bill, HB 1649, is one step closer to allowing same-sex marriage in Washington state — and is directly undermining the state’s Defense of Marriage Act that was passed in 1998 to define marriage as between a man and a woman. HB 1649, which was approved Friday night, now goes to the Senate for consideration there. Legislation must pass both the House and Senate before it can be signed into law by Gov. Chris Gregoire. In other action in the Legislature, as the House and Senate move toward

Monday’s deadline for voting bills out of their houses of origin:

Military voting The Senate approved a bill that streamlines voting for armed forces members serving abroad. The vote Friday came a day after the bill was shelved because support fell apart during floor debate. Under the measure, current law is amended so that armed forces members only have to send in a scanned copy of their ballot and signature via e-mail. Previously, the law called for armed forces members to also send in a ballot via mail or fax. Supporters say many armed forces members are stationed in remote areas and sending in physical ballot is difficult. On Thursday night, a vote on the bill was pulled because several senators had concerns about security of online voting — not realizing that online voting with PDFs already existed. “I appreciate the additional explanation that would have been helpful the other day,” said Sen. Jim Hargrove, D-Hoquiam, one of the three state legislators representing Jefferson and Clallam counties and part of Grays Harbor County in the Legislature. “I apologize for the kerfuffle the other day.” The bill now goes to the House for consideration.

Health insurance House lawmakers approved the creation of a state health insurance exchange — a public-pri-

vate association designed to promote competition and drive down costs for individuals and smaller businesses when the federal law is fully implemented. Under the 2010 Affordable Care Act, states are required to set up these exchanges by Jan. 1, 2014. The House approved its bill on a 79-18 vote Friday. “It gives us the opportunity to expand coverage and get more choices for people and get some subsidies from the federal government to help our people be able to pay for health coverage,” said Rep. Eileen Cody, D-Seattle. A couple of nights earlier, the Senate approved its version of the state health exchange. The two bills will now need to be reconciled.

Child prostitution The state Senate unanimously approved two bills aimed at fighting child prostitution. The bills would expand the criminal definition of human trafficking and allow police to record telephone calls involving underage victims when the victims give consent. Current law prohibits police from employing minors in sex trafficking investigations. It also prohibits police from recording conversations without the consent of both parties on the call.

Pay to reduce dropouts A bill that would give cash awards to Washington high schools that reduce their dropout rate would cost as much as $4.8 million a year, but the primary sponsor says the state’s financial situation should not prevent meaningful education reform.

The bill cleared the House on a 54-42 vote Wednesday and got mixed reviews in the House Education and Ways and Means committees because of its price tag. Legislative staff members estimate the cash awards could total $4.8 million a year, but the bill states no awards would be given until money is appropriated. The Office of Financial Management said as many as 340 high schools around the state might qualify for awards ranging from $10,000 to $50,000 depending on their success in reducing dropout rates. Individual schools would get 90 percent of the cash bonuses, with 10 percent going to school districts. About 73.5 percent of Washington students in the class of 2009 graduated with high school diplomas within four years of entering high school. The measure still must clear the Senate and make it into the final House-Senate budget bill.

Farmers markets Representatives from across the state touted their own district’s wineries as the best as the state House debated a bill that would establish a pilot program for beer and wine tastings at select farmers markets. Democrat Rep. Phyllis Gutierrez-Kenney of Seattle said that allowing tastings at farmers markets will help publicize local products and boost the economy of small businesses. Opponents argued the change would loosen restrictions on alcoholic beverages and provide another venue for minors to be exposed to them. But the bill passed 78-20

and now goes to the Senate.

Mail-in ballots The state Senate voted 26-23 Friday night to make mail-in ballots the standard throughout the state. The bill sponsored by Sen. Scott White, D-Seattle, would include Pierce County in the requirement that all elections statewide be conducted entirely by mail. Pierce County is currently the only holdout — allowing both mail and poll voting. The Secretary of State’s Office requested the bill to eliminate the confusion caused by maintaining both poll voting and mail-in ballots. The bill now moves to the House.

Tax-free meals House lawmakers voted to exempt free meals given to restaurant employees from sales tax. Existing law says the Department of Revenue can require restaurants to pay sales tax on the meals they provide at no charge to their workers during their shifts, as those meals are considered compensation for services provided. But restaurant owners think this is bad public policy that encourages businesses to stop feeding their employees, forcing them to go off-site or pay for food out of their salaries. The House on Thursday agreed with bill sponsor Rep. Eric Pettigrew, a Seattle Democrat, that restaurants should support their hardworking employees, passing the bill 96-1. Supporters say current policy doesn’t make sense, as it taxes meals for which no revenue is earned. The bill now goes to the state Senate.

Private-hiring leap boosts recovery hope The New York Times

WASHINGTON — The economic waiting game may soon be over, as businesses signal that they are finally willing to resume widespread hiring. In all, the nation added 192,000 jobs in February, a big jump from the 63,000 added the previous month, the U.S. Labor Department reported Friday. The job growth was the most in nearly a year, and the 12th consecutive month of gains by companies, which added 222,000 workers last month. It followed an unusually weak report in January, when major snowstorms across the country prompted offices and factories to close. Taken together, the first two months of the year produced growth at about the same pace as last fall.

Worker comp change gets OK Senate endorses settlement option By Manuel Valdes The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — The state Senate approved a measure Saturday that would drastically change Washington’s workers’ compensation system by establishing an option for lump sum settlements. The 34-15 vote in the Senate was a significant win for the business lobby, which has been trying to move the state away from prolonged payment benefits and pensions for injured workers.

Next stop: House The bill now goes to the House for consideration there. Legislation must pass both the House and Senate before it can be signed into law by Gov. Chris Gregoire. Organized labor has steadfastly opposed settlements and will take their fight to the House, where support for business may not be as robust as in the Senate. Meanwhile, the House approved a package of bills that address everything from shutting down companies during investigations to streamlining appeals for cited companies, but none included a settlement option. Yet, the chamber’s leadership argued that the changes in their package will save money to the system by getting workers healthier faster and helping bring down premiums. The votes set up a political fight among familiar lines for the rest of the session.

Labor opposed

Hope for more Economists say they are hopeful the pace will soon pick up further. “Economic recoveries can be like a snowball rolling down a hill, in that it takes time to get some momentum,” said John Ryding, chief economist at RDQ Economics. “People hesitate until they feel that the recovery’s durable enough, and then they have a tendency to jump in. Maybe we’re finally getting to that jumping-in moment.”


The Associated Press

Mariam Bario, recently relocated to Seattle from Kenya, fills out an application with others at a job fair in SeaTac last week.

Rebecca Johnson of the Washington Labor Council said labor is against a settlement option “because it turns a reliable safety net into a lottery” where access to lawyers plays a key role. Most of the bills approved by the House were approved with Republican support, including a Senate bill creating a network of medical providers for injured workers. The medical providers bill now goes to Gregoire’s desk.

Tiny drone sends spies’ hearts a-flutter Nano Hummingbird could see battlefield, urban action Peninsula Daily News news services

LOS ANGELES — A pocket-size drone dubbed the Nano Hummingbird for the way it flaps its tiny robotic wings has been developed for the Pentagon as a minispy plane capable of maneuvering on the battlefield and in urban areas. The battery-powered drone was built by AeroVironment, of Monrovia, Calif., for the Pentagon’s research arm doing experiments in nanotechnology. The little flying machine is built to look like a bird for potential use in spy missions. The Hummingbird is the result of a five-year effort, announced last week by the company and the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. Equipped with a camera, the drone can fly at speeds of up to 11 mph, AeroVironment said. It can hover and fly sideways, backward and forward, as well as go clockwise and counterclockwise, by remote control for about 8 minutes. The quick flight meets the goals set forth by the government to build a “hummingbird-like” aircraft. It also demonstrates the promise of fielding minispy planes. Industry insiders see the technology eventually being capable of flying through

open windows or sitting on power lines, capturing audio and video while enemies would be none the wiser. The Hummingbird would be a major departure from existing drones that resemble traditional aircraft. The next step is likely to be further refinement of the technology, officials said, before decisions are made about whether the drones would be mass-produced and deployed.

Go ‘anywhere’ “The miniaturization of drones is where it really gets interesting,” said defense expert Peter Singer, author of Wired for War, a book about robotic warfare. “You can use these things anywhere, put them anyplace, and the target will never even know they’re being watched.” With a wingspan of 6.5 inches, the minidrone weighs 19 grams, or less than an AA battery. The Hummingbird’s guts are made up of motors, communications systems and a video camera. It is slightly larger than the average hummingbird. The success of the program “paves the way for a new generation of aircraft with the agility and appearance of small birds,” Todd Hylton, Hummingbird program manager for the Pentagon’s research arm, said

Matt Keennon, program director at AeroVironment, demonstrates a tiny drone aircraft known as the Nano Hummingbird. in a statement. In all, the Pentagon has awarded about $4 million to AeroVironment since 2006 to develop the technology and the drone itself. Matt Keennon, the company’s manager on the project, said it was a technical challenge to create the minimachine from scratch because it pushes the limitations of aerodynamics. Less than two years ago,

an earlier version of the drone could fly for 20 seconds. Keennon said the current duration is likely to be extended as experiments continue. “This is a new form of man-made flight,” Keennon said. It is about “biomimicry,” or building a machine inspired by nature, he said. The Pentagon issued seven specific milestones

Diabetes linked Worker: to early deaths Range of ailments called sweeping By Stephanie Nano The Associated Press

NEW YORK — A 50-year-old with diabetes dies six years sooner than someone without the disease, and not just from a heart attack or a stroke, new research suggests. The large international effort to measure diabetes’ toll found the disease also raises the risk of dying prematurely from a host of other ailments, even breast cancer and pneumonia. “It’s quite a wide sweep of conditions,” said Dr. John Danesh of Cambridge University in Britain, who led the team of researchers. While most people think of heart problems, diabetes surprisingly “appears to be associated with a much broader range of health implications than previously suspected.” Putting the six years lost in context, he said, long-term smoking shortens life by 10 years.

Diabetes, the seventh leading cause of death in the U.S., affects about 26 million Americans, or 8 percent, including 7 million who haven’t been diagnosed. Most in the study were thought to have the most common kind — Type 2 — which occurs when the body makes too little insulin or cannot use what it does make to regulate blood sugar. High blood sugar can damage nerves and blood vessels and is a major cause of heart disease. The new research didn’t include those who had heart disease when they were first enrolled. Participants were followed on average for 13½ years, and there were more than 123,000 deaths. Overall, death rates from various causes were higher for those with diabetes than those without.

market rebounds, so will the reserves of the system. “We have no projections. No predictions of savings,” said Sen. Karen Keiser, D-Kent. “We need to slow down. There’s no solvency crisis. We need to consider what we’re turning on its head.” Opponents of the measure also raised concerns about the cost of the proposed bill and medical privacy. The major expenses of the system came from only 8 percent of all claims, which involve workers who are receiving benefits for a prolonged period of time or have lifetime pensions. That section of workers represents 85 percent of the compensation costs, according to the state labor department that manages workers’ compensation.

Rate complaints Businesses have long argued that the premiums they pay to the system are too high. “We need to take this step to bring sustainability to our workers’ comp system,” said Janea Holmquist Newbry of Moses Lake, one of the Senate GOP’s key negotiators. The measure approved

Saturday was a deal worked out between Senate Republicans and Democrats, amending the governor’s bill to include the option of a voluntary settlement in case of an injury at the workplace. Supporters said most states have such an option. Gregoire’s proposal initially had a settlement option that would only apply for workers older than 55 years of age. Under the proposal, an injured worker who chooses a settlement can do so with a lawyer or be consulted by a state settlement officer. There’s a 30-day period after settlement negotiation when a worker can change his or her decision. “This is a balanced bill that is good for workers and employers alike,” said Association of Washington Business President Don Brunell in a statement. “Costs continue to go up, yet injured worker claims are actually down, and our workers’ compensation system is on the verge of collapse.” Not included in the Senate bill were any provisions narrowing the definition of occupational diseases, which were also part of their priority list this session.

But surveys also show public opposition to attempts to weaken collective bargaining rights. For unions, the political standoffs could represent a make-or-break moment for their future.

Claim refunds SEATTLE — Refunds totaling more than $1.1 billion, including $34 million for Washington state taxpayers, may be waiting for nearly 1.1 million people who did not file a federal income tax return for 2007, the Internal Revenue Service said. However, to collect the money, a return for 2007 must be filed with the IRS no later than April 18. The IRS estimates that half of these potential 2007 refunds are $640 or more. Some people may not have filed because they had too little income to require filing a tax return — even though they had taxes withheld from their wages or made quarterly estimated payments. If no return is filed to claim a refund within three years, the money becomes property of the U.S. Treasury.

States smart-phone users. The report said Android now accounted for 29 percent of all active smart phones. In comparison, the RIM BlackBerry platform and Apple’s iOS each account for 27 percent of active smart phones. The numbers used in the study were collected from November through January; this does not account for the Apple iPhone being available on the Verizon cellular network. The Nielsen study said people ages 18 to 24 years old were more prone to adopt the Google Android platform. Those ages 25 to 34 years seem to be evenly split when deciding which smart phones to buy, opting for Android, iOS and BlackBerry on an equal basis.

SEATTLE — Conservation groups and the U.S. Forest Service have agreed to a new rule for protecting hard-to-find but ecologically important species in Northwest forests such as snails and mushrooms. Pete Frost, a lawyer for the conservation groups, said Friday the agreement would exempt restoration projects, such as thinning young stands of trees, from the so-called survey and manage rule, while maintaining the protections for old-growth forests. The agreement must be approved by a federal judge. The Bush administration had tried to dismantle the rule to allow more logging, but it was reinstated by a federal judge. The rule was part of the Northwest Forest Plan, which cut logging on national forests in Oregon, Washington and Northern California to protect salmon, the northern spotted owl and other species.

ISSAQUAH — The environmental group Greenpeace is claiming a victory in Costco Wholesale Corp.’s decision to stop selling some varieties of fish viewed to be unsustainable. Greenpeace targeted the Issaquah-based retailer to change its fish-buying policies, which could affect the entire retail fish industry. Costco said last week it will discontinue the sale of fish defined as “at risk,” pledging to resume only when those species are certified as sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council. The decision means no further sales of Atlantic cod, Atlantic halibut, Chilean sea bass, Greenland halibut, grouper, monkfish, orange roughy, redfish, shark, skates, rays, swordfish and bluefin tuna. Costco will continue to sell farmed seafood, and company officials said they will work with the World Wildlife Fund and other groups to revise its supplier standards to promote better stewardship. In a three-page seafood sustainability policy available online, the company added: “Moving forward, we expect to carefully examine whether there are other species that we should cease to sell because of a consensus around documented concerns that the species are at great risk.”

The preliminary update by Arun Raha, the state’s chief economist, shows revenue collections down 1.5 percent below earlier expectations. In a preliminary report released Friday, Raha’s report said: “The economic outlook has improved somewhat since our November forecast, but it is still clouded with a great deal of uncertainty.” In November, Raha said the state’s deficit forecast had ballooned to $5.7 billion. The revenue declines are forcing the state to slash government spending. The official revenue collections update will be released March 17.

amended,” Mody said. “Why would a skiff be 800 miles off Somalia with a rocket-propelled grenade, a ladder and extra barrels of fuel? “What are they doing? Fishing? These people need to be arrested and prosecuted.”

Why not attack? Many people ask: Why not storm ashore and attack the pirate bases? These dens are well known. One pirate boss has been using millions of dollars in ransoms to build a landbased army that at first glance looks more disciplined and better equipped than Somalia’s national army. But the military option would not be pretty. The 800 or so captured seamen could be used as human shields.

Troop option risky And no Western country has shown an appetite to send troops to Somalia, not after the Black Hawk Down fiasco of 1993, when ragtag Somali militiamen downed two American helicopters and killed 18 elite American troops. And a military attack could easily backfire. “They might kill a few pirates, but more would certainly spring up to replace them,” said Bronwyn Bruton, who wrote a widely discussed essay on Somalia. “The replacements would probably be even angrier and more violent.” In her essay, she advised the international community to essentially pull out and let Somalis sort out their problems on their own.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You’ll be inclined to overreact or take things the wrong way. Try not to indulge in self-pity. Look at the possibilities, not the impossible. Love, friendship or a business partnership will flourish if you offer what you know you do best. 3 stars TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t give in to a bully or manipulation.

Husband needs help with depression, alcohol abuse DEAR JOHN: I married “Andy” two years ago. A week later, we moved to Scotland for Andy’s new job. I gave up my career, car and life as I knew it. After three months, Andy decided that it was a terrible place and wanted to come home to New York. We did, but he was soon let go because there was no position left for him in the company. Since then, we’ve stopped having sex because he’s never in the mood. I got him to go to a doctor who put him on antidepressants. Unfortunately, he also drinks. Recently, I found out that Andy has been cheating on me. I left him, but he calls

into an emotional tailspin. He needs more than a pill; he needs counseling to get to the root of his depression and to confront his substance abuse.

Women’s stories show no right time to marry IF TODAY’S COLUMN proves one thing, it’s that you can be a cleareyed realist at 18 and a starry-eyed optimist at 36. All of which proves: There’s no right time to marry . . .

When I first married, I was 36 and Todd was a very serious 29-year-old. We’d met three years earlier in a neighborhood bar that I’d been going to for a long time. We pretty much hit it off right away. I left that night figuring I’d see him there soon, but I actually didn’t see him for a couple of months. When I did see him again, he remembered me and my name, but I couldn’t remember his, which should have been a sign because I’m really good at remembering names. To make a long story

Tales from the Front

short, he ended up moving into my apartment when his lease was up. We lived together for three years before we got engaged. There were so many signs this marriage should never have happened, but I ignored them. Here are some examples of those signs: He wasn’t an animal lover. He wasn’t a Cubs, Sox or Bears fan, since he was from St. Louis. I thought these things would magically change. Ha-ha-ha. I’m not quite sure what planet I was on, thinking that. Of course, there were some more serious things that happened during the course of our marriage, which lasted almost 14 years. One important thing I realized too late was that if drinking and partying are pretty much the only things you have in common, the relationship will never last. Cheryl, I know all your readers are going: “Duh? No kidding.” Sadly, it took me a long time to realize that. I’ve now been married for almost seven years to a wonderful guy I met online. He’s truly my soulmate, and we have so much in common it’s amazing. They always say oppo-

sites attract, but not in my case. I’ve never been happier, for which I will forever be thankful and will forever feel blessed.”

Denise We married at 19, and we’ll be celebrating our 30th anniversary this year. While my husband may not be perfect, I have no illusions that anyone out there is. By ditching him and hooking up with someone else, I may get rid of some annoyances, but new ones would surely take their place. Perhaps my life would have been a bit better if I hadn’t married him, but more than likely, it would have been far worse. Since we had already been dating a couple of years, I don’t think continuing the pattern of dating and then marrying later would have made any difference. We have three fantastic kids who wouldn’t be here if we hadn’t married when we did. My steadfast rules throughout the marriage have been if he ever cheated on me or hit me, it would be over. Anything other than that could be worked out. Realistic expectations are definitely the key. Save the romantic idealism for daydreams.

‘Lunch lady’ ascends to director at Boys & Girls Clubs By Diane Urbani for

Peninsula Woman


SEQUIM — Ever since she was the only girl on the boys’ team, Mary Budke has been one to go the distance. Budke, 51, looks after some 360 youngsters every weekday at two locations: the Sequim and Port Angeles units of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula. She took a short break recently for lunch with a reporter and, with some prodding, described the circuitous road that

brought her here. “I was a lunch lady,” she begins. Back in 2004, Budke was working in the kitchens at both Helen Haller Elementary School and the Boys & Girls Club in Sequim — while earning a Master of Science in education from Old Dominion University.

Going the distance She learned about stamina while growing up in Casper, Wyo. As a teenager, she loved to run, and joined the track and cross-

country teams despite the fact that not many girls did such things back in the mid-1970s. Upon graduation from high school in 1978, Budke won a fullride athletic scholarship to Idaho State University in Pocatello. There, she earned a dual degree in sociology and history, in hopes of becoming a teacher. But the dean of the liberal arts college discouraged her from that profession, and Budke switched her sights to a career in law. Those plans changed, too, when she and her husband, Ste-

ven Budke, welcomed their first son, Brennan, into the world in 1988. Fast-forward a decade and a half, when Budke was at last poised to apply for a teaching job in the Sequim School District. She had completed her master’s degree at Old Dominion — after driving every Friday and Saturday to the satellite campus in Bangor. This was 2006; Brennan was 17 and his brother Spencer 13. Then Todd Bale, then the Boys & Girls Clubs’ executive

director, asked Budke if she would consider starting a program for kindergartners at the Sequim club. She was more than interested. As director of KinderKids, she created the Monday-through-Friday program providing music, art, physical fitness, social studies and science activities plus lunch and snacks for 5- and 6-year-olds. Budke also authored a grant application that brought the new program $7,500 from the Qwest Foundation. Turn

Budke: Perseverance Continued from 3 When Bale resigned in 2007, she was promoted to Sequim unit director, and became supervisor of the 25,000-square-foot club where hundreds of 5- to 18-year-olds come after school. Then, last May, Boys & Girls Clubs Executive Director Bob Schilling abruptly resigned, and Budke was asked to step in as interim chief.

Permanent director After a nearly six-month search that yielded 45 candidates, Budke was named permanent executive director in November. Upon her hiring, she vowed to keep on with her kid-centered work, “with a vengeance.” The Boys & Girls Clubs require of their leader exactly that: a brand of passion that doesn’t burn out. These buildings, at 400 W. Fir St. in Sequim and at 2620 S. Francis St. in Port Angeles, are meant to be refuges for any child or teenager who needs, as the

Upcoming club events THE BOYS & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula, with units in Port Angeles and Sequim, are planning numerous events this month and next. First comes a “Smart Girls” sleepover for 11- and 12-year-old girls next Friday, March 11, at the Sequim club; then on March 25, the club will offer another Parents’ Night Out. This means moms and dads — from anywhere in Clallam County — can bring their children age 5 and older to the Sequim unit, where the youngsters will enjoy activities, a movie and a meal and snacks from 6 p.m. till 10 p.m. The fee is $12 for one child and $10 for each additional child from one family. Spring Break Camp is set for March 28 through April 1 in Sequim and April 4 through 8 in Port Angeles. Both camps feature field trips and plenty of special activities for children age 6 to 12; the Sequim club also offers KinderKids camp for kindergarten-age children. For details, phone the Sequim unit at 360-683-8095 or the Port Angeles club at 360-417-2831, or visit www.PositivePlaceforKids. net. Peninsula Woman

club slogan goes, “a positive place.” And they are not just for the good students, the athletes or the delightful little ones. Budke is known for her perseverance with all kinds of young people. She’s known for trying to help a boy who was expelled from Sequim High

School for fighting and other behavior that could shock even a seasoned teacher. Budke sought to get the youth, then 16, back into school last year. He’s had more personal and academic trouble since then — and she continues to be his advocate. Turn

This week’s question: What is your personal mission in life?

Kids need fish in diet HOW IMPORTANT IS it for kids ages 1 to 18 to eat fish? How often? What are some of the best ones for younger kids?

Toronto parent We used the baby food fortified with docohexaenoic acid (DHA,) developed by Beechnut, when our children were between 6 and 8 months old. Now that they are 4 and 6, we continue to offer some type of fish at least twice a month in addition to fish oil vitamins. The caplets currently come in fruit flavors, which the kids don’t seem to mind taking at all. We tried several different brands but found the Maxi Omega Yums are their favorite. — Kasey B. in Toronto

From Jodie

“Living life to the fullest. “Right now, I am raising my granddaughter. Her name is Haille; [she] had a heart transplant at age 22 months. She has been featured in the PDN. She is living with me, so she is my biggest concern right now. “I enjoy life now, whether it’s working, grocery shopping or at home. Life is good, I believe, and I take one day at a time.”

“To have enough time to do what I want to do. Being happy, in other words. “I strive for a balance between work and free time. We have a list of things we would like to accomplish. We do like to travel. “We have been simplifying our lives lately, though. We’d like to take a boat and sail. Time is an important factor we need to balance in our lives.”

Kathleen Anding, 55 retail clerk Port Angeles

Sam Calhoun, 44 assistant administrator Port Angeles

“To raise my two boys to the best of my ability. Share with them my Christian beliefs and way of life. Not necessarily push my beliefs on them, but by my example, show them what is right and wrong in a caring way. “That is my mission for right now. They’re 2 years old and 13 months old, and it will take a good portion of my life to accomplish this mission.”

Amanda Roedell, 22 homemaker Port Angeles


Fish is important to everyone’s diet for various nutritional reasons but especially for brain and nerve development in growing babies and kids. In all of my research, I found the best explanations in a brand new book, The Portable Pediatrician, by Dr. Sears. You can also read online information pertaining to fish as brain food at www.askdrsears. com/html/4/t040400. asp.

Parent to Parent Jodie Lynn Nevertheless, kids seem to fight the taste of fish almost from the very beginning. The new fruit flavored fish oil caps seem to be going over well with most kids and may be the solution to get omega-three fatty acids into fish-resistant kids. Hopefully, a certain company will soon be offering an in-the-works red salmon baby and kid food, created by Susan Brewer, a registered dietitian and former professor of food science at the University of Illinois. While the idea of a better and more fortified baby and kid fish food is sort of a newly created novelty in the United States, Heinz Baby Food and Hero Baby Espana in Europe and Asia, have been carving a path for their kids for some time now. DHA is a highly desirable nutrient for babies

and kids and comes not only with a promise of helping with brain power, but also potentially calming children with ADD. In adults, it can actually help with anxiety, depression and tension, not to mention the benefits of better skin and being low in fat and calories.

Can you help? My 2-year-old is a very picky eater and has a strange appetite and diet. In fact, she will eat baby powder throughout the day if we do not closely monitor her whereabouts. My girlfriend’s 4-year-old tries to eat soft rocks and seems to have a strong craving for them. What is going on with their constant need for such strange items? Is the baby powder and rock representing a specific vitamin or food we are not feeding them?
