PORT ANGELES — Another vehicle was found vandalized with spray paint Tuesday, this time at the Port Angeles Walmart Supercenter, police said. The Port Angeles police are investigating the spray-painting of 16 vehicles Monday. Vandals spray-painted blue and silver lines on the sides of at least 20 vehicles in a west Port Angeles neighborhood, Deputy Chief of Police Brian Smith said. Another vehicle was defaced at the Port Angeles Walmart at about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, said Clallam County Undersheriff Ron Peregrin. A deputy investigated the Tuesday vandalism but filed no report.

PORT ANGELES — Anti-fluoride activists are down but not out. The attorney representing Clallam County residents seeking to stop fluoridation of Port Angeles’ drinking water said they are considering taking legal action against the city after the state Supreme Court announced Monday that it will not reconsider an earlier ruling that sided with City Hall. The Sept. 23 ruling said the city’s 4-year-old practice “I just don’t talk of adding fluoride to its drinking about lawsuits water for dental until I’m ready purposes could not be challenged to file them.” Dr. Eloise Kailin through citizens’ Clallam County Citizens initiatives. for Safe Drinking Water The two appellants in that case, Our Water-Our Choice! and Protect Our Waters, asked the state high court to reconsider the tight 5-4 vote. Gerald Steel, their attorney, said legal action is being considered against the city to stop fluoridation, but he declined to say exactly what his clients have in mind. If any action is taken, he said it would be done by Clallam County Citizens for Safe Drinking Water, another anti-fluoride group that he represents. “We can say that Clallam County Citizens for Safe Drinking Water is considering its options for further legal action against the city,” Steel said.

Lack of a report The lack of a report could indicate that the crime was very small in nature or that the owner of the vehicle chose not to pursue the issue, Peregrin said. Smith said no one has been arrested in Monday’s spray-painting spree but that some people have called in tips. It is unknown if the car vandalized at Walmart is related to the others, Smith said. “When we catch the suspect or suspects, that is something we will ask them about,” he said. The initial rash of spraypainted cars and trucks Monday night extended in a trail from the 800 block of West Sixth Street to the 1100 block of West Seventh Street. Turn

Candy snatcher, 16, pleads guilty By Tom Callis Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — A 16-year-old boy will serve 80 hours of community service for snatching a Halloween pillowcase full of candy from a trick-or-treater, a 13-yearold who also reportedly had a knife held to his throat by an alleged accomplice. The 16-year-old boy, who is not identified because he is a minor, was sentenced Dec. 23 in Clallam County Juvenile Court after pleading guilty to one count of second-degree robbery.

His alleged accomplice, a 17-year-old boy who is accused of holding a knife to the victim’s throat after the theft, pleaded not guilty to first-degree theft and seconddegree assault with a deadly weapon Nov. 4. He has a status hearing scheduled for Jan. 6. The police probable-cause statement gives this account: Two boys, 12 and 13, were walking home at about 7:50 p.m. after trick-ortreating Oct. 31 when they were confronted by three older boys, two of whom carried bats.

One honked an air horn, and another sprayed the victim in the face with silly string. A 17-year-old boy wearing a black hockey mask pulled the victim’s arms behind his back while a 16-year-old boy wearing a red bandanna over his face snatched the victim’s pillow case. Another teenage boy who was part of the group but who did not participate in the theft told the trick-or-treaters that he would try to get the candy back. Turn


Dr. Eloise Kailin, the secretary and treasurer for the group, said legal action could be taken within “the framework of, say, three months.” But the Sequim-area resident stressed that no decisions have been made and declined to elaborate on what’s being considered. “I haven’t committed to that,” she said. “I just don’t talk about lawsuits until I’m ready to file them.” Any legal action taken could also involve the city of Forks, Kailin said. Forks is the only other public entity on the North Olympic Peninsula that fluoridates its water. City Attorney Bill Bloor called the state Supreme Court’s decision “good news” and said he wasn’t surprised that anti-fluoride activists are considering other ways to try to stop fluoridation in Port Angeles.





Judge thwarts bid to halt minimum wage hike 12-cent increase begins Saturday The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — A Kittitas County judge Wednesday rejected a request to halt a 12-cent increase to the state’s minimum wage that takes effect this weekend. Superior Court Judge Scott Sparks ruled against the summary judgment request made by a coalition of business groups that sued the state last month over the

decision to raise the minimum wage to $8.67 an hour. The groups opposed to the increase argued that the minimum wage can’t be increased in 2011 because this year’s Consumer Price Index did not reflect a net increase in the cost of living since 2008. A voter initiative ties the state’s minimum wage to the index. The coalition opposed to the increase includes the Washington Farm Bureau, the Washington Restaurant Association and the

Washington Retail Association. John Stuhlmiller, a spokesman for the Farm Bureau, said the groups are determining their next step. “Obviously, it’s not the outcome we wanted,” he said of the ruling. Suchi Sharma, an attorney with the state Department of Labor and Industries who attended Wednesday’s hearing in Ellensburg, said the group’s lawsuit remained active but that under the judge’s ruling, the minimum wage will increase Saturday as scheduled.

A Seattle-based lawyer for Justice for Immigrant Workers said the increase is “a big deal for a lot of people.” “That 12-cent raise goes further than you think,” Rebecca Smith said. “It’s going to make a difference of a few dollars a week — but a few dollars a week buys an extra loaf of bread, another gallon of milk or a gallon of gas.” The agency’s decision in October to raise the rate came after conflicting legal opinions from the state attorney general and the

authors of the 1998 voter initiative that tied the minimum wage to the Consumer Price Index. The state wage in 2010 didn’t increase, the first time that’s happened since the initiative passed, because inflation, as measured by the price index, fell last year. It’s now growing again but at a slower rate. Recent federal numbers showed an overall increase in the index, though it’s still lower than the last time the state minimum wage increased in January 2009.

Robert S. Chandler, 74, superintendent of Olympic National Park for six years in the 1980s, has died. Mr. Chandler, a resident of Tehachapi, Calif., died Dec. 23 of multiple myeloma at a hospital in Mr. Bakersfield, Chandler said his son, Alan Chandler. In a 38-year career with the National Park Service that began as a horticulturist in 1958, he was superintendent of Everglades and Grand Canyon national parks as well as Olympic and also oversaw such diverse Interior Department treasures as the St. Louis Arch and the San Francisco Presidio. Mr. Chandler was known as an effective leader who worked with local communities and state and government officials on tough issues. In 1981, James G. Watt, the newly appointed secretary of the interior by President Ronald Reagan, imposed a freeze on National Park Service land acquisition funds and

stated publicly, “I do not believe the national park system should run urban parks,” when Mr. Chandler headed the Los Angelesarea park. Mr. Chandler reportedly received a verbal reprimand for publicly defending the recreation area and criticizing Watt’s action. But he was named Olympic superintendent right after that. At Olympic, he helped defend the park from encroaching loggers, dealt with mountain goats eating native plants and helped stop tourists from pilfering marine life on the park’s coastline. In 1988, a barge off Grays Harbor County broke its tow line, ruptured and spilled 230,000 gallons of oil that drifted from Oregon to British Columbia — including the Olympic National Park coastline. In a 1989 congressional hearing after the Exxon

Valdez disaster in Alaska, Mr. Chandler was invited to discuss the cleanup efforts at Olympic, where about 10,000 birds were killed. He was asked whether an oil-damaged park ever be completely restored. “The standard we applied was no oil,” he said. “I don’t believe we will ever be able to meet that. I don’t believe we will be able to remove every drop of oil. We will not be able to get the park back to the way it was.” After retiring, he served on the secretary of the Interior’s Advisory Board on National Parks and helped write its seminal report, “Rethinking the National Parks for the 21st Century.” In addition to his son Alan, Chandler is survived by his wife of 53 years, Mitzi; his other children, Donna and Richard; his brother, Glenn; and three grandchildren.

Briefly: Nation Feud ends over Venezuelan president’s body MIAMI — The longtime mistress of former Venezuelan President Carlos Andres Perez said she will not contest his estranged wife’s desire to bury his remains in his native country. Cecilia Matos and her two adult daughters said Wednesday they would stop their efforts to have the president buried Matos in Miami. They said returning him to Venezuela would be a way to pay tribute to him. On Tuesday, a Miami-Dade judge ordered a funeral home not to bury Perez as planned Wednesday in South Florida. Wife Blanca Rodriguez de Perez wanted him buried in Venezuela. Matos had vowed not to bring his remains back to Venezuela until President Hugo Chavez, who led a failed 1992 coup against him, leaves office.

That distance included a 300-foot paved safety apron and 358 feet of dirt beyond that. The runway had some snowy patches, but its surface afforded good braking friction, he said. Martelle said airline officials were trying to determine why the plane went off the runway. The National Transportation Safety Board announced Wednesday it has opened an investigation into the incident.

Bison brave the winter elements on the Ed Eichten family farm near Center City, Minn., on Friday.

Bison ranchers struggle to meet consumer need Ground bison sells at $7 per pound but still niche product By Steve Karnowski The Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS — The deep snow blanketing the Midwest prairie didn’t bother the bison on Ed Eichten’s ranch one bit. The hardy animals evolved to survive — even thrive — year-round on the open range, and with their big heads, they can plow right through drifts 5 feet tall or more. The majestic beasts are a hot commodity these days, as consumer demand for healthy meat has sent prices soaring. But although bison are what one rancher calls “a selfcare animal,” most farmers are struggling to increase their herds

and keep up with demand. Bison grow slower than other livestock, and a heifer can’t have her first calf until she’s 3, said Dave Carter, executive director of the National Bison Association in Westminster, Colo. Beef cows can have calves at 2. Also, many producers are finding heifers more valuable for breeding than eating, which means fewer bison going to market — at least temporarily, he said. The tight supply comes after bison farmers spent much of the past decade aggressively courting consumers by touting the health benefits of the low-fat, low-cholesterol meat. Bison caught on, and

even in the economic slump, prices haven’t discouraged consumers. Bison fans say the meat doesn’t taste gamy — it has a rich, beefy flavor but is a little sweeter. Since it’s so lean, chefs say preparing it properly requires slower cooking over lower heat than beef. They say steaks shouldn’t be cooked past medium or medium rare. Those who prefer meat well done might want to try a bison pot roast. While retail prices vary, ground bison has been selling for about $7 a pound, compared with a little over $5 a year ago, Carter said. But it’s still a niche product. About 92,000 head of bison were processed last year in North America, according to the association. That’s less than one day’s beef production in the U.S. alone.

5 attempts later, Iraqi cop dead from 3 suicide bombers By Barbara Surk

The Associated Press

BAGHDAD — Police Commander Lt. Col. Shamil al-Jabouri knew al-Qaida wanted him dead. He was renowned in the tense northern city of Mosul for his relentless pursuit of the terror group, and insurgents had tried at least five times to kill him for it. On the sixth attempt, al-Qaida left little to chance.

As al-Jabouri slept Wednesday morning on a couch in his office, three men wearing police uniforms over vests laden with explosives slipped through an opening in the blast walls surrounding the compound where his building stood, police said. Police manning one of at least four observation towers surrounding the compound shot one of the attackers in a yard and his vest exploded. Under the cover of that

blast, police said, the other two suicide bombers charged about 100 yards and made it into al-Jabouri’s single-story building. They detonated their vests simultaneously — one at the door of al-Jabouri’s office — killing the commander instantly and injuring a policeman sleeping in a trailer nearby. The two blasts brought the whole building down, burying the slain commander under the rubble, police said.

O’Donnell’s campaign funds probed By Ben Evans and Matthew Barakat The Associated Press

BALTIMORE — Federal authorities have launched a criminal investigation to determine whether failed U.S. Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell broke the law by using campaign money to pay personal expenses, according to a person familiar with the investigation. O’Donnell, the Delaware Republican and tea party favorite who scored a surprise primary victory this year only to lose badly in the November general election, denied the charges and suggested they were being driven by her political opponents on the right and left, including Vice President Joe Biden.

Quick Read

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity to protect the identity of a client who has been questioned as part of O’Donnell the probe. The case, which has been assigned to two federal prosecutors and two FBI agents in Delaware, has not been brought before a grand jury. O’Donnell, who set a state record by raising more than $7.3 million campaigning this year, has been dogged by questions about her personal and campaign finances. At least two former campaign workers have alleged that

O’Donnell routinely used political contributions to pay personal expenses including her rent as she ran for the Senate three consecutive times, starting in 2006. She acknowledged in a newspaper interview in March that she paid part of her rent with campaign money, arguing that her house doubled as a campaign headquarters. The U.S. Attorney’s office in Delaware has confirmed it is reviewing a complaint by a nonpartisan watchdog group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington. O’Donnell’s campaign issued a statement Wednesday denying that she misspent campaign money and saying it has heard nothing from authorities.

A CALIFORNIA MEDICAL marijuana dispensary has raked in food donations with a unique offer: free pot. The Granny Purps dispensary in Soquel, about 60 miles southeast of San Francisco, offered a complimentary marijuana cigarette for every four cans of food a patient brought in this holiday season. Each patient was limited to a maximum of three cigarettes a day. The Santa Cruz Sentinel reported that the dispensary took in 11,000 pounds of food and handed out 2,000 marijuana cigarettes between November and Christmas Eve, when the promotion ended.

With U.S.-backed peace efforts deadlocked for more than three months, the Palestinians are pressing forward as part of a broader effort to step up international pressure on Israel.

Wilder Auto Center installs electric charging stations Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Wilder Auto Center can now charge up the Nissan Leaf cars that became available this year. Two charging stations were installed Wednesday at the dealership at 97 Deer Park Road west of Port Angeles. The Leaf is a completely electric car with no combustion engine, said Dan Wilder Jr. It has a range of about 100 miles before it must be recharged, he said. “These are not hybrids — they are fully electric with no combustion engine, no transmission, no oil

changes,� Wilder said. “They are extremely quiet, and I’ve even driven one, and they have great power.� Eventually, charging stations for other types of cars will become available, he said, but these are designed specifically for the Leaf. The charging station will be used primarily for customers who are having service work done or who are stopping by for other reasons, he said. “I have two charging stations being installed right now,� he said. “One is outside, and one is inside, and they are designed to accommodate one car each.�

So far, four people on the North Olympic Peninsula have purchased Leafs from Wilder, he said. The cars come with a home charging station, he said. Just as a gas-powered car might be fueled up during an oil change, the electric-powered cars could be charged while having other work done, Wilder said. Although the electrical charge won’t be set up like a gas station for the Leafs to power up for a fee, it will be available for customers who stop by, Wilder said.

A study in contrasts Weather dry on Peninsula, snowy on state’s east side Peninsula Daily News

The North Olympic Peninsula’s crisp, cool — and relatively dry — weather Wednesday was in stark contrast to the eastern side of the state, which was blanketed by snow.

Blowing and drifting snow at times closed U.S. 195 between the Idaho state line and Pullman, state Highway 27 from Palouse to Garfield, and state Highway 23 from Steptoe to Sprague in the southeastern part of the state. The Weather Service expected the snow to taper off Wednesday night, but clearing skies today were expected to mean frosty temperatures — down to minus 4 degrees in Spokane tonight and colder in Northeast Washington. Snow fell in the Cascade Range on Wednesday, making travel across the passes difficult, The Associated Press said. The Transportation Department said motorists should expect ice and snow across most of the state for the holiday weekend.

Hundreds volunteer for PT shelter By Jeff Chew

Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — What started as a few women from three churches in 2005 has grown to a force of 12 Jefferson County churches and more than 450 volunteers who help operate the emergency winter shelter in the basement of American Legion Post 26 downtown. Community Outreach Association Shelter Team is today more like an army caring for those who might otherwise be sleeping on the ground in the bonechilling outdoors. COAST, as it is commonly called, is one of three legs of the stool supporting the Jefferson County Winter Shelter. The other two agencies essential to the shelter are Olympic Community Action Programs and the American Legion. The shelter, which houses up to 18 men and women in the basement of the American Legion Hall at 209 Monroe St., is open from 4 p.m. to 8 a.m. each day from late November to midMarch. It was open all day for Christmas, and volunteers plan to have it open all day New Year’s Day, said Joyce O’Neal, member of COAST. “Obviously, the need in the community has increased. The trickle-down theory obviously touches everyone,” said the Rev. Skip Cadorette, referring to the anemic economy that has sent some to the shelter. Cadorette, pastor of First Baptist Church of Port Townsend, who calls himself a “Port Townsend boy,” took over for O’Neal as COAST board chairman in September. While COAST leaders have considered branching out, their focus remains on the shelter, Cadorette said. “We’re trying to provide basic services — a warm place to stay, a secure place to sleep and food.”

COAST also has had help from volunteers with service clubs, as well as the American Legion’s Women’s Auxiliary. “But the vast portion of it is from the faith community,” Cadorette said. Kim Hammers, a founding member of COAST through St. Mary Star of the Sea Catholic Church, said that when it comes to the homeless, church volunteers merely “walk the talk” of their religious teachings. “It’s not a hard thing to do — make food or give a blanket,” Hammers said. COAST co-Chairman the Rev. Carl Hanson at Church of Christ in Port Townsend said the shelter’s success “speaks well of the community.” Karen Riel of Brinnon, Alison Capener of Port Townsend — a former COAST chairwoman — Hammers and O’Neal were among the founding members. Capener organized local churches to help the homeless after her son died in a shelter in Hawaii. COAST volunteers help by serving more than 5,280 hot dinners, breakfasts and sack lunches at the shelter each season. The shelter sparkles with bright-colored paint and better lighting, heating and bedding than when it started.

Improvements American Legion Cmdr. Joe Carey said the legion and others most recently donated a new refrigerator to the shelter. That’s a small part of what Carey estimates to be some $20,000 to $25,000 in improvements to the shelter space that have included a new furnace and drainage improvements to the driveway outside and above the basement space that once flooded.

Community Outreach Association Shelter Team — which spells COAST — officials gather in the Jefferson County Emergency Winter Shelter kitchen. From left are the Rev. Skip Cadorette from First Baptist Church of Port Townsend; Carla Main from the Quaker Church; Kim Hammers of St. Mary Star of the Sea Catholic Church; and the Rev. Carl Hanson, Church of Christ in Port Townsend. Future legion plans include adding two unisex bathrooms in what is now storage space, Carey said, but because the shelter is below street level, the bathrooms will require a pump. The legion has also been hard at work outside the building with landscaping that blends with the city of Port Townsend’s streetscape at Madison and Water streets.

Briefly: State Aberdeen car crash kills 6-year-old girl ABERDEEN — A 6-year-old girl was killed in a car crash near Aberdeen, and investigators said she does not appear to have been wearing a seatbelt. Grays Harbor County Undersheriff Rick Scott tells KXRO-AM that Kiahna Howard was ejected from the minivan along with her grandmother, who was driving, when it collided with another car Tuesday evening. Scott said the grandmother suffered nonlifethreatening injuries and is in satisfactory condition at a hospital. A State Patrol expert found that she showed signs of impairment when she was questioned, and Scott said she could be charged with vehicular homicide if a blood draw indicates she was driving under the influence. Investigators said the minivan started to go off the road and the driver over-corrected into the path of an oncoming vehicle. No one in the other car was injured.

Guilty for shooting EVERETT — A 24-yearold man has pleaded guilty and will serve a 20-year prison sentence for causing a crash that shut down Interstate 5 and shooting at a sheriff’s deputy during a high-speed chase. The Herald of Everett reported that Theodore Ohms could have been looking at twice as much time behind bars if he hadn’t accepted the plea deal Tuesday in Snohomish County Superior Court. The crash he caused Sept. 1 left a woman severely injured. She nearly lost her left arm. He said he fled from police because he didn’t want to go back to jail. At the time, Ohms was wanted for failing to report to the state Department of Corrections. He was being supervised because of a drug conviction. The pursuit, crash and manhunt stranded thousands of drivers on I-5 near Everett.

Texas cop slaying TACOMA — An Arlington, Texas, police spokeswoman said a 38-year-old man who fatally shot his ex-girlfriend and a rookie police officer before killing himself was a registered sex offender for a crime committed in Washington state. Spokeswoman Tiara Ellis Richard said Barnes Samuel Nettles registered as a sex offender in Arlington in August. Washington State Patrol criminal history records showed Nettles was convicted of third-degree rape of a child in a 1997 Pierce County case. Details of that case weren’t immediately available late Wednesday. The record indicated Nettles moved from Washington state Aug. 30. The Texas spokeswoman said Arlington Officer Jillian Michelle Smith was killed Tuesday night as she tried to protect an 11-yearold girl from Nettles, her mother’s ex-boyfriend. The girl was unharmed.

Peninsula Daily News for Thursday, December 30, 2010




Sarah Palin was right: ‘death panels’ Sarah Palin deserves an apology. When she said that the new health care law would lead to “death panels” deciding who gets life-saving Cal treatment and Thomas who does not, she was roundly denounced and ridiculed. Now we learn, courtesy of one of the ridiculers — The New York Times — that she was right. Under a new policy not included in the law for fear the administration’s real end-of-life game would be exposed, a rule issued by the recess-appointed Dr. Donald M. Berwick, administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, calls for the government to pay doctors to advise patients on options for ending their lives.

These could include directives to forgo aggressive treatment that could extend their lives. This rule will inevitably lead to bureaucrats deciding who is “fit” to live and who is not. The effect this might have on public opinion, which by a solid majority opposes Obamacare, is clear from an e-mail obtained by the Times. It is from Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., who sent it to people working with him on the issue. Oregon and Washington are the only states with assisted-suicide laws, a preview of what is to come at the federal level if this new regulation is allowed to stand. Blumenauer wrote in his November e-mail: “While we are very happy with the result, we won’t be shouting it from the rooftops because we aren’t out of the woods yet. “This regulation could be modified or reversed, especially if Republican leaders try to use

this small provision to perpetuate the ‘death panel’ myth.” Ah, but it’s not a myth, and that’s where Palin nailed it. All inhumanities begin with small steps; otherwise the public might rebel against a policy that went straight to the “final solution.” All human life was once regarded as having value, because even government saw it as “endowed by our Creator.” This doctrine separates us from plants, microorganisms and animals. Doctors once swore an oath, which reads in part: “I will not give a lethal drug to anyone if I am asked, nor will I advise such a plan; and similarly I will not give a woman a pessary to cause an abortion.” Did Dr. Berwick, a fan of rationed care and the British National Health Service, ever take that oath? If he did, it appears he no longer believes it. Do you see where this leads? First the prohibition against

Peninsula Voices Holy day

Secular Christmas

We were saddened by the response to the Peninsula Poll question published Dec. 24: “How much religious significance do you put in Christmas?” Over 50 percent of the 1,000-plus respondents said they attached “very little” significance to this day. Embroidered on a little pillow that sits on a chair in our home is a sentiment that helps remind our family of the real meaning of the season. It simply says, “The spirit of Christmas is peace. The heart of Christmas is love. The joy of Christmas is family and friends. The reason for Christmas is Christ.” We hope that more people will remember the “reason” for the season as they celebrate this holy(i)day. Donna and Doug Moulton, Forks

We who celebrate a secular Christmas are not the ones ignoring the original meaning of Christmas and we are not the ones judging and frowning upon those who do. Christians complain that the “original” Christian message is ignored at Christmas. Christmas is a multicultural, multi-religious festival celebrated in many forms and the Christian version is the newest one. Despite Christian propaganda, pagan festivals, winter solstice and sunworship form the original basis of the Christmas period. Such modern Christians do not know its history. Christian churches have themselves led long and bitter campaigns against the observance of Christmas and in various times and places banned it completely. The religious content was always very small,

abortion is removed and “doctors” now perform them. Then the assault on the infirm and elderly begins. Once the definition of human life changes, all human lives become potentially expendable if they don’t measure up to constantly “evolving” government standards. It will all be dressed up with the best possible motives behind it and sold to the public as the ultimate benefit. The killings, uh, terminations, will take place out of sight so as not to disturb the masses who might have a few embers of a past morality still burning in their souls. People will sign documents testifying to their desire to die, and the government will see it as a means of “reducing the surplus population,” to quote Charles Dickens. When life is seen as having ultimate value, individuals and their doctors can make decisions about treatment that are in the best interests of patients.

Our readers’ letters, faxes

But when government is looking to cut costs as the highest good and offers to pay doctors to tell patients during their annual visits that they can choose to end their lives rather than continue treatment, that is more than the proverbial camel’s nose under the tent. That is the next step on the way to physician-assisted suicide and, if not stopped, governmentmandated euthanasia. It can’t happen here? Based on what standard? Yes it can happen in America, and it will if the new Republican class in Congress doesn’t stop it.

of their Sun Gods. Thus the ancient pagan festival of the winter solstice came to be used by the Christian church as the Nativity of Jesus, and was called Christmas although it was not until about 1884 that Christians celebrating Christmas became fashionable. Dianna Sheets, Sequim

with most celebrations and rituals being secular, organized by the people, not by clerics. Modern-day Christmas sometimes contains Christian elements. Some Christians of the first few centuries celebrated the birth of their messiah. They did not know for

certain where he was born, where he died or where he was buried. When they did celebrate Christmas, they generally did so in April and May. In the fourth century the church established the date of Jesus’ birth as Dec. 25 to compete with the early Pagan winter festivals to celebrate the birth

What is it, exactly, that we hope to obtain in Afghanistan? If it is to cripple alQaida, then the job is done. If it is to change the culture of the Afghanis or the Middle East in general, that goal is simply unobtainable. Thanks to the cowboy diplomacy of G.W. Bush and Dick Cheney, Muslims everywhere think they’re fighting a holy war. Americans think we’re retaliating for 9/11, and Wall Street and the oil barons know the truth: It’s all about oil.

It’s always been about oil, ever since British Petroleum kicked up this hornet’s nest by steeling billions in oil from the Iranians. The U.S. has poured billions in resources and cash into this desert quagmire while the government of Afghanistan protects and condones the illegal opium/ heroine trade and the Afghan vice president, Ahmed Zia Massoud, traipses about with $52 million in American currency. By my calculation, that’s about 2.5 million goatsworth of moolah. Quite a haul for one of the dirtpoorest nations on Earth. The cause in the Middle East, if there ever was one, is not worth one more American life. Our families have suffered beyond measure. Time to call this small-t turkey by a new name: Unobtainistan. Charles Miller, Port Angeles

The troops who aren’t coming back President Obama signed a slew of bills into law during the lame-duck session of Congress and was dubbed the “Comeback Kid” amidst a flurry of fawning press reports. In the hail of this surprise bipartisanship, Amy though, the one Goodman issue over which Democrats and Republicans always agree — war — was completely ignored. The war in Afghanistan is now the longest war in U.S. history, and 2010 has seen the highest number of U.S. and NATO soldiers killed. As of this writing, 497 of the reported 709 coalition fatalities in 2010 were U.S. soldiers. The website has carefully tracked the names of these dead. There is no comprehensive list of the Afghans killed. But one thing that’s clear: Those 497 U.S. soldiers, under the command of the “Comeback

Kid,” won’t be coming back. On Dec. 3, Commander in Chief Obama made a surprise visit to his troops in Afghanistan, greeting them and speaking at Bagram Air Base. Bagram is the air base built by the Soviet Union during that country’s failed invasion and occupation of Afghanistan. Now run by U.S. forces, it is also the site of a notorious detention facility. On Dec. 10, 2002, almost eight years to the day before Obama spoke there, a young Afghan man named Dilawar was beaten to death at Bagram. The ordeal of his wrongful arrest, torture and murder was documented in the Oscar-winning documentary by Alex Gibney, “Taxi to the Dark Side.” Dilawar was not the only one tortured and killed there by the U.S. military. Obama told the troops: “We said we were going to break the Taliban’s momentum, and that’s what you’re doing. “You’re going on the offense, tired of playing defense, targeting their leaders, pushing them out of their strongholds. “Today we can be proud that

there are fewer areas under Taliban control, and more Afghans have a chance to build a more hopeful future.” Facts on the ground contradict his rosy assessment from many different directions. Maps made by the United Nations, showing the risk-level assessments of Afghanistan, were leaked to The Wall Street Journal. The maps described the risk to U.N. operations in every district of Afghanistan, rating them as “very high risk,” “high risk,” “medium risk” and “low risk.” The Journal reported that between March and October 2010, the U.N. found that southern Afghanistan remained at “very high risk,” while 16 districts were upgraded to “high risk.” Areas deemed “low risk” shrank considerably. And then there are the comments of NATO spokesman Brig. Gen. Joseph Blotz: “There is no end to the fighting season. . . . We will see more violence in 2011.” Long before WikiLeaks released the trove of U.S. diplomatic cables, two key documents were leaked to The New York Times.

The “Eikenberry cables,” as they are known, were two memos from Gen. Karl Eikenberry, the U.S. ambassador in Afghanistan, to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, urging a different approach to the Afghan War, with a focus on providing development aid instead of a troop surge. Eikenberry wrote of the risk that “we will become more deeply engaged here with no way to extricate ourselves, short of allowing the country to descend again into lawlessness and chaos.” A looming problem for the Obama administration, larger than a fraying international coalition, is the increasing opposition to the war among the public here at home. A recent Washington Post/ ABC News poll found that 60 percent believe the war has not been worth fighting, up from 41 percent in 2007. As Congress reconvenes, with knives sharpened to push for what will surely be controversial budget cuts, the close to $6 billion spent monthly on the war in Afghanistan will increasingly become the subject of debate.

points out, the cost of war extends far beyond the immediate expenditures, with decades of decreased productivity among the many traumatized veterans, the care for the thousands of disabled veterans, and the families destroyed by the death or disability of loved ones. He says the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan will ultimately cost between $3 trillion and $5 trillion. One of the main reasons Obama is president today is that by openly opposing the U.S. war in Iraq, he won first the Democratic nomination and then the general election. If he took the same approach with the war in Afghanistan, by calling on U.S. troops to come back home, then he might truly become the “Comeback President” in 2012 as well.

Near collisions at work infuriating DEAR ABBY: There is a situation at work that has smoke coming out of my ears. I’m past the age of retirement but need to continue working. I’m with a great company and enjoy what I do. The fly in the ointment is one of our salespeople. He’s a big, strapping guy who comes barreling down the narrow aisles between cubicles. On more than one occasion, I have had to execute a quick side step in order not to be run over. After the most recent near miss, I told him in no uncertain terms that if it ever happened again, I’d let him plow into me and take the consequences. My question is, if I don’t get out of his way and do get knocked down, what recourse do I have? Good manners would dictate that the younger man allow me to pass first, but are there any legal ramifications? I would love to smack him (like Bette Davis would in an old movie), but with my luck, I’d be charged with assault. What say you, Abby? On a Collision Course in Wisconsin

For Better or For Worse


Frank & Ernest

Dear On a Collision Course: Good manners would, indeed, dictate that the younger man allow you to pass first, if the younger man has been taught basic manners by his parents. Apparently, this salesman’s parents didn’t do that. So rather than smacking the ignoramus, you should address your concerns to your supervisor, so he or she can tell him to slow down and watch where he’s going. If you were injured on company property, the liability would be the company’s, and the physical ramifications for you could be serious.


Dear Abby: A few weeks ago, I had one of the greatest days of my life when I married my fiancee, “Joy.” The ceremony was interrupted when my brother-in-law’s cell phone rang. I was so annoyed I turned around and asked him if he’d like us to wait while he took the call. The backlash at the reception later was all directed at me!


dear abby Abigail

Van Buren

Joy and my side of the family laughed about it. But Joy’s family was angry and said I should have ignored it. What are your thoughts or advice? Should I apologize even if I’m not sorry? On Hold in Chandler, Ariz.

Dear On Hold: Your brother-inlaw owes both you and Joy the apology. He should have turned his cell phone off before the ceremony. If he’s in a field where he’s on call 24/7, then the phone should have been set to vibrate rather than ring. P.S. Please tell me he didn’t actually answer it. Readers, has this happened to you? Dear Abby: We live in a retirement community that includes some single men. On a couple of occasions, one of the gentlemen has come into the clubhouse with his zipper down. If there are no other men in the area, what would be the appropriate way to handle something like this? I know it would be embarrassing if the problem was addressed in a public manner. What’s your suggestion? Blushing in Arizona Dear Blushing: Take the person aside and tell him quietly that his fly is open. (It’s not unlike telling someone of either sex that he or she has a bit of salad stuck between his or her front teeth.) This way the problem can be remedied quickly and efficiently, with the least embarrassment to either party.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): If you concentrate more on professional goals and less on your personal life, you will fare better in both areas. You’ll be limited financially if you allow someone to take advantage of your generosity. Don’t believe someone promising you love and happiness. 2 stars

Winter crabbing to end; claim dig

No Holiday for Huskies UW to have hands full vs. No. 17 Huskers today The Associated Press

THIS WEEKEND IS the last shot for crabbing until summer while some adventurous folks can celebrate the New Year while clamming on dry but cold evenings Friday and Saturday at Kalaloch and the other four clamming beaches. Crabbing ends Sunday at sunset while shellfish lovers also can stock up with clams this weekend.

Clamming at night Clam diggers can ring in 2011 with a two-day razor clam dig on coastal beaches during the New Year’s holiday. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife approved the series of evening digs after marine toxin tests showed that the clams on all five coastal razor clam beaches are safe to eat. Opening dates and evening low tides for the upcoming dig are: ■ Friday — 3:40 p.m., (0 ft.), Kalaloch, Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis and Mocrocks. ■ Saturday — 4:31 p.m., (-0.4 ft.), Kalaloch, Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis and Mocrocks. Also, Twin Harbors will have a third day of harvest on Sunday: ■ Sunday — 5:18 p.m., (-0.7 ft.), Twin Harbors. No digging will be allowed on any beach before noon. Diggers should note that low tide on Friday will occur at 3:40 p.m., setting the stage for the first daylight dig of the season. The weather forecast for Kalaloch is for clear or partly cloudy and cold evenings through the weekend. Daytime forecast for Friday will be sunny with a high near 42 degrees and east-southeast winds at about 7 mph. It will be mostly clear at night with a low of 25 degrees and a southeast wind at 6 mph becoming clam. Expect it to be sunny on New Year’s Day with a high close to 42 degrees and partly cloudy at night with a low about 26 degrees. In early January, WDFW will release a tentative schedule of digging days in early 2011. As in the past, final approval of those dates will depend on the results of future marine toxin tests. Under WDFW rules, harvesters may take no more than 15 razor clams and must keep the first 15 taken, regardless of size or condition. Each digger’s limit must be kept in a separate container. A license is required for anyone age 15 or older. Any 2010 annual shellfish/seaweed, razor clam or combination license is still valid. Licenses can be purchased via the Internet at http://fishhunt.dfw., by telephone (866-246-9453) or in person at more than 600 license vendors throughout the state. Washington’s razor clam beaches include: ■ Long Beach, which extends from the Columbia River to Leadbetter Point. ■ Twin Harbors Beach, which extends from the mouth of Willapa Bay north to the south jetty at the mouth of Grays Harbor. ■ Copalis Beach, which extends from the Grays Harbor north jetty to the Copalis River, and includes the Copalis, Ocean Shores, Oyhut, Ocean City and Copalis areas. ■ Mocrocks Beach, which extends from the Copalis River to the southern boundary of the Quinault Reservation near the Moclips River, including Iron Springs, Roosevelt Beach, Pacific Beach and Moclips. ■ Kalaloch Beach, which extends from the South Beach Campground to Brown’s Point (just south of Beach Trail 3) in the Olympic National Park.

Washington mascot Harry the Husky talks with U.S. Navy seaman Megan Walls while waiting to go aboard the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan during a Holiday Bowl event at Naval Station North Island in Coronado, Calif., on Tuesday.

SAN DIEGO — A little more than three months after the Nebraska Cornhuskers marched up and down the field, and then some, against the Washington Huskies, the teams will meet again in the Holiday Bowl tonight. Nebraska coach Bo Pelini downplayed the rematch angle, saying both teams are different all these weeks after a 56-21 win in which the Huskers piled up 533 yards of total offense, including 383 rushing. “We’re a different football team than we were three months ago and I’m sure Washington is a different football team than they were three months ago,” Pelini said at a news conference Wednesday. “Everybody wants to make a big deal about it. I coached in the NFL for nine years, so I’m used to playing against a team twice in a season. “Every time you play, you’ve got to earn it on the field. “It’s going to be a heck of a football game. They have a lot of momentum. They’re a better football team than they were.

Hopefully we are, too.” No. 17 Nebraska is 10-3 while Washington is 6-6.

Bruins defeat Cougars by 9 The Associated Press

The Associated Press

Washington’s Venoy Overton, right, passes the ball under pressure from Southern California’s Bryce Jones during the first half of their game in Los Angeles on Wednesday night.

LOS ANGELES — Reeves Nelson and Malcolm Lee scored 21 points apiece to lift UCLA to a comefrom-behind 80-71 victory over Washington State Wednesday night. Nelson and fellow sophomore Tyler Honeycutt, who finished with 14 points, did most of their damage in the second half, after the Bruins found themselves training by eight points at halftime in the Pac-10 opener for both schools. Nelson was held to eight points in the first half and Honeycutt, back from a onegame absence because of a sprained shoulder, scored 12 of his points after the break. Honeycutt, UCLA’s leading scorer, ignited a 20-6 run that brought the Bruins (9-4) back from a 37-29 halftime deficit. Honeycutt scored eight of the Bruins’ 20 points during that run, with six coming on two 3-point baskets. Washington State (10-3)

lost its second in a row. The Bruins connected on their first five field goals, but the Cougars stayed close before scoring 13 straight points to turn a two-point deficit into a 33-22 lead. Klay Thompson connected on two 3-point baskets during the spurt. Faisal Aden contributed with a couple of jumpers, one from 15 feet out and the other from beyond the 3-point mark. The Bruins did their best to clamp down defensively on Thompson. The Cougars’ leading scorer scored 14 points in the first half and finished with a game-high 26 points. Aden finished with 19 points, but the Cougars were unable to match the 52 percent shooting percentage that they had in the opening 20 minutes. Washington State connected on just 11 of its 29 field-goal attempts — 38 percent — in the second half.

Huskies open Pac-10 play with OT win against USC NFL fines Favre By Beth Harris

The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Matthew Bryan-Amaning and freshman reserve Terrence Ross scored 18 points each, and Washington rallied to beat Southern California 73-67 in overtime in the Pac-10 opener for both teams on Wednesday night. Ross, whose points were a career high, hit four 3-pointers to tie his career best before fouling out with 2:37 left in overtime. Bryan-Amaning added eight rebounds, and Justin Holiday scored 12 points for the Huskies (9-3), who won their third in a row and sixth in their last seven. They outscored USC 18-12 in overtime, with Holiday accounting for their first five points.

USC’s Donte Smith tied it at 58 with a 3-pointer, but the Trojans trailed the rest of the way. Washington extended its Pac-10 winning streak to eight games and won its school-record fifth straight road league game, both streaks dating to last season. The Huskies were backed by a large contingent of vocal fans who drove up from San Diego, where Washington plays in the Holiday Bowl on Thursday. Nikola Vucevic had a career-high 28 points — making all 14 of his free throws — and 14 rebounds for the Trojans (8-6), who had won two in a row. USC shot 34 percent from the floor and kept itself in the game from the free-throw line, hitting 24 of

32 attempts. Vucevic hit a 3-pointer that drew the Trojans to 54-53 with 1:27 to play. Bryan-Amaning made the first of two free throws to keep the Huskies ahead 55-53 before Vucevic got fouled and made both to tie the game at 55. Venoy Overton missed a 3-pointer with 44 seconds to go. Washington retained possession, but Isaiah Thomas missed a 3 with 7 seconds left to force overtime. The Huskies’ high-octane offense was held in check. They came in averaging 90.5 points, and had scored more than 100 points four times. Neither team led by more than five points in the second half. USC opened with a 12-5 run that

extended its lead to 38-33. The Huskies took their first lead of the second half with a 13-8 spurt, capped by two free throws from Overton that made it 46-45. The Trojans exploded from the opening tip, outscoring Washington 16-4 with multiple steals that led to dunks. They scored 14 points off the Huskies’ 10 turnovers in the half. The Huskies answered with a 24-10 run over the rest of the half to lead 28-26 at the break. Four times they got within one point and finally took their first lead of the game on a 3-pointer by Ross with a minute to play. USC was limited to two field goals over the final 8½ minutes.

The Associated Press

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Down to the last few days of the season and maybe Brett Favre’s career, the NFL ended a slow-paced investigation of tawdry allegations against the quarterback with a $50,000 fine and a rebuke for not being candid. The league punished one of its marquee players for failing to cooperate with investigators who were trying to determine if the 41-year-old quarterback sent inappropriate messages and below-the-belt photos to Jenn Sterger in 2008, when both worked for the New York Jets. The ruling came days before what could be the final game for the threetime MVP. He’ll start for Minnesota

at Detroit on Sunday if he’s recovered from a concussion sustained Dec. 20 against Chicago. It’s been a tough season on the field for Favre and his Vikings, and by the league’s own admission, the investigation begun in early October has generated plenty of bad publicity for all the parties involved — Favre, Sterger and the NFL itself. Yet Commissioner Roger Goodell “could not conclude” that Favre violated the league’s personal conduct policy based on the evidence currently available to him, the league said in a statement announcing the fine. Forensic analysis failed to establish that Favre sent the objectionable photographs to Sterger, the league said.

Goodson leads Zags to victory Dawgs: Bowl By Nicholas Geranios The Associated Press

SPOKANE — It was unusually quiet in Gonzaga’s McCarthey Athletic Center on Wednesday with the students gone for winter break and a raging snowstorm outside. Demetri Goodson fired the place up by pushing the Bulldogs’ offense with 13 points and six assists as Gonzaga beat Lafayette 83-55. “It’s hard to get the energy in here when the students are not here. It’s quiet,” Goodson said. Kelly Olynyk scored 15 points and Elias Harris 14 for Gonzaga, which won its fourth straight game after an early December slump

knocked it from the Top 25. Harris added nine rebounds as Gonzaga (8-5) dominated inside, outscoring Lafayette 40-12 in the paint and winning the rebound battle 48-31. Jim Mower scored 21 points to lead Lafayette (4-9). The Leopards, from the Patriot League, could not contain Gonzaga’s front line of Olynyk, Harris and Robert Sacre. “They were physically superior to us in there,” said Lafayette coach Fran O’Hanlon. Lafayette led 13-11 before Olynyk hit three unanswered baskets to spark an 18-6 run that put the Bulldogs ahead 29-19

with 5:33 left. Harris had seven points during a 9-0 run that put Gonzaga up 38-22. “We got down and started losing our poise,” O’Hanlon said. Gonzaga shot 60 percent in the first half for a 42-27 lead. Mower had 17 of Lafayette’s 29 points in the first half, and the Leopards shot just 35 percent. Their shooting woes continued in the second half, and Mathis Monninghoff’s 3-pointer gave Gonzaga a 67-45 lead with 8 minutes left. Jared Mintz added 12 points for Lafayette, which shot just 33 percent for the game.

Gonzaga leading scorer Steven Gray, who has been slowed by a back injury, played but did not shoot the ball. “It was good to get him on the floor,” coach Mark Few said. Gray said his back felt fine. “I haven’t played since Notre Dame really,” Gray said. “It was good to get my feet wet.” This was the first meeting between the teams. Gonzaga is 81-5 in McCarthey since it opened in 2004, including a loss to No. 7 San Diego State earlier this season. The Zags host Oklahoma State on Friday.

Preps: Sequim and Forks win Continued from B1 Wednesday morning. “Overall, I am pleased “We missed a lot of wide- with the way we played,” open shots,” Webster added. Sequim coach Greg Glasser “We did play good defense, said. “We did a great job exethough.” Eatonville guard Erik cuting and controlled the Swartout was the game’s whole rest of the game.” Corbin Webb led Sequim leading scorer with 14 with 24 points as the game’s points. “We held him way below leading scorer as well.

PORT ANGELES — Jim and Sheri Mackrow will take over ownership of Shirley’s Cafe, 612 S. Lincoln St., on Saturday. Sheri Mackrow is the daughter of retiring Shirley’s Cafe owner Shirley Cargile. Customers and other friends are

invited to say goodbye to Cargile and enjoy coffee and cafe with her and meet the new owners from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday. “We are committed to keeping the friendly service, comfortable atmosphere and quality food you expect from our cafe,” said Mackrow.

The business is open from 6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily. Breakfast and lunch are served all day. The business is known for the thousands of pieces of memorabilia on display on the restaurant’s walls and the electric train that travels around the dining room.

Amazon could nip bad gifts in bud The Associated Press

SEATTLE — For some, it’s the red reindeer Christmas sweater. For others, it’s the diamond-encrusted dreidel. Whatever your worst gift nightmare might be, Amazon may soon give you a reason to cheer. Inc., the source of many presents good, bad or ugly, has patented a system that would let people exchange unwanted gifts for those they actually want — even before they get them. For now, though, it’s just an idea, so until Amazon figures out how to implement it, you may be stuck with that itchy sweater

from Grandma, even if she bought it online. Amazon did not return messages to speak about its plans. Based on Amazon’s patent filing, recipients of unwanted gifts would be able to exchange items that are too big, too colorful or otherwise unwanted for something of equal value. They could also pay the difference for a more expensive item or get a gift certificate. They could do this before they actually receive the gift, thus saving themselves the hassle of repackaging and mailing the unwanted present. If they wish, recipients could even send a thank-

you note for the original gift. They can disclose to the sender that their gift has been converted or simply keep it from them and just hope they don’t ask about it later.

Automatic switch If there’s a friend or family member with a history of giving unwanted presents — the filing calls her “Aunt Mildred” — users could select to convert all gifts from this person into something else. Amazon said its idea would benefit gift-givers as well, as they can take a chance on a more interesting gift knowing that it can

be returned. A charity could also use it to streamline donations, according to the patent filing. For example, a children’s charity asking for mittens could have donations stop once they have 100 pairs. The rest can be converted into hats, scarves or gift certificates. Amazon, which is based in Seattle, had applied for the patent in March 2006. The company received it Nov. 9. Any system that Amazon sets up would presumably apply to Amazonbought items, but the patent could cover similar systems set up by rivals as well.

Bellagio nixing $25,000 chip after heist The Associated Press

LAS VEGAS — Las Vegas casino bosses are serving notice to the bandit who made off with $1.5 million in chips from the Bellagio: Try to redeem those worth $25,000 soon or they’ll become worthless. Bellagio owner MGM Resorts International is giving public notice that it is discontinuing its standard chip valued at $25,000 and calling for all gamblers holding the chips to redeem them by April 22. After that, gambling regulators said, each red chip with a gray inlay won’t be

worth more than the plastic it is cast from. “The bottom line is that they’re not money,” said David Salas, deputy enforcement chief for the Nevada Gaming Control Board. MGM Resorts first posted notice of the redemption last week in the classifieds of the Las Vegas Review-Journal newspaper. That’s one week after a robber wearing a motorcycle helmet held up a craps table at gunpoint and made off with a bag of chips of varying denominations. Police and casino officials have been working since the Dec. 14 heist to try

to locate the bandit and keep watch on anyone trying to cash in the chips, which ranged in denomination from $100 to $25,000. A police spokeswoman said Wednesday there have been no significant developments in the case. MGM Resorts spokesman Alan Feldman said the chips were switched out at the tables within an hour of the robbery, and the Bellagio immediately filed to discontinue the chips. Feldman said the move was designed to avoid inconveniencing players using the high-value chips. He said he did not know

BOISE, Idaho — A man on a Southwest Airlines flight from Las Vegas to Boise struck a teenager who refused to turn off his cell phone, police said. Officers arrested Russell E. Miller, 68, at the Boise airport Tuesday for investigation of misdemeanor battery. He was later released from jail on bond. Witnesses told police the 15-year-old was playing games and listening to music on an iPhone when flight attendants instructed passengers to turn off their electronic devices as the plane was leaving the Las Vegas airport. When the teen didn’t respond, Miller got angry and struck the boy in the arm, witnesses said. Miller told police he “tapped” the teen on the shoulder after the boy refused to turn off the phone. Miller added that he may have “overreacted” but that he did not punch the teen.

around and sells them for thousands more.” Special elimination vehicles will be clearly marked with two prices. The first price is the retail price. This is the price that you would expect to see if you went used car shopping at local car dealers. The second price is the drastically reduced elimination price. This is the price that the vehicle will be sold for. This type of pricing will make it quick and easy to find the car you want at a price you can afford. The selection of cars, trucks, minivans, sport utility vehicles and motorcycles will be huge.

During this sale, financing assistance will not be a problem. Local banks, finance companies and credit groups have agreed to help buyers finance these vehicles regardless of past credit history.

Buyers will find best-selling models from Chevrolet, Ford, Dodge, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac. Popular import models from Subaru, Mercedes, Kia, Hyundai, Honda, Toyota and Nissan, as well as scooters and motorcycles by Honda, Vespa, Piaggio, Moto Guzzi and Harley Davidson will also be available. There will be approximately 20 vehicles priced below $8,995 to choose from.

According to the Event Finance Director, because all of the vehicles will be sold below the Kelley Blue Book value, little to no down payment will be necessary to obtain preferred financing. Even buyers with less than perfect credit will be able to obtain on-the-spot credit approval. This is a great opportunity to get a fantastic price and get the best financing terms available.

If you or anyone that you know is in the market for a great car, truck, minivan, sport utility vehicle, scooter or motorcycle, then you need to make plans to attend this special sale this week.

The Event Coordinator for this event said, “We will help the banks and finance companies by selling these vehicles. Banks would prefer selling to the general public at a great price rather than taking them to private auctions where the dealer buys them and turns

February 24, 1931 December 22, 2010 Maryann McFarland, 79, went home to be with her Lord on December 22, 2010, in Port Angeles. She is survived by her loving husband of 41 years, Levi McFarland; her son, Kenneth Kuhns; her daughter, Karol Dennis, and husband ,Mark, with grandsons Japheth, Shaynan, Greyson and Jameson; her stepdaughter, Charlotte Knutson, and husband, Neil, with grandsons Nelson and Nolan; her stepson, Albert McFarland, and wife ,Trudy, with granddaughters Caitlin, Jenna, Amy and Emily; her stepson, David (Joe)

Mrs. McFarland McFarland, and girlfriend, Vicki, with grandsons Travis and Joshua; her dear sister, Anita Russell; and a large, extended family. She was preceded in death by her parents;

brothers, Paul, George, Elmer, Art, Chris and Kenneth; and sister, Millie. Maryann was born February 24, 1931, the ninth child of Anton and Stella Olson of Bristol, South Dakota . Her adventurous, Norwegian spirit served her well in life. Though the youngest, she was the first in her family to graduate from college in 1954. She lived in Alaska for 27 years, finding great joy in her view of the mountains, exploring and birdwatching — she loved chickadees. She had a warm and generous heart, often opening her home to travelers, friends and family who needed a place to stay.

She “adopted” several young families who were far from home and included them in holidays, celebrations and regular “family” dinners. A visit with Levi and Maryann was a time of laughter, good food and full hearts. In 1997, they retired in Port Angeles, where she puttered in her garden, made new treasured friends, and found great joy being near her children and grandchildren. Maryann, until we meet again in heaven, you will be greatly missed. A memorial is to be held January 3, 2011, at 1 p.m., at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, 301 East Lopez Street, Port Angeles.

Death and Memorial Notice Aurea Marie Schmitt January 24, 1918 December 22, 2010 Aurea Marie (Daigle) Schmitt was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, to Levi “Lee” Daigle and Emma Marie (Plante) Daigle. She was the youngest of four sisters and was named after a nun who took care of her at birth. The name Aurea comes from the term Aurora Borealis (beautiful lights in the sky). Grandparents on her father’s side were Raphael Daigle and Julia Michaud and on her mother’s side were Edmond Plante and Saraphine Furgeon. All were of French decent. Sisters in order from eldest to youngest were Virginia Marie, Stella Marie and Lucille Marie. When Aurea was a young girl, the Daigles moved from Minneapolis to Port Angeles in 1924. Aurea started school at Jefferson Elementary and then at the Queen of Angels Catholic School after being newly built. She attended Catholic school until the family moved to Marysville, Washington, where she graduated from high school in 1936. She then went on to business college in Seattle and soon after finishing her courses was able to land her first job working for Puget Sound Power and Light. She worked there for seven years, first as a phone operator/ bookkeeper, then working her way up to head of department as a public relations representative. Aurea went to Port Angeles one evening to go to a dance when her brother-in-law, Claude Jarvis, introduced her to a strapping young man by the name of Francis “Bud” Schmitt. Aurea thought this Bud fellow was pretty great because he was able to

Mrs. Schmitt dance quite well, even though he was a “farm boy.” She eventually married Bud on April 10, 1944, and moved out to the Schmitt family farm in Joyce. Bud built Aurea her new home as quickly as possible, and Aurea started her first garden. She was excited to learn about country living and being a farmer. To add to the couple’s income from Bud’s logging jobs, they decided to raise milk cows, selling the cream to the Darigold Creamery in Port Angeles. In 1954, Bud and Aurea adopted a baby boy they named Joseph and, in 1956, a girl they named Jeannie. With their family now complete, it was time to take another step. The couple decided to phase out of the cream business and raise beef cattle instead. Aurea was all for the idea as there would be no more cleaning of the milk separator. About the same time, Bud and Aurea, along with brother-in-law and sister, Leonard and Doris Pfaff, decided to develop their adjoining beachfront properties into a campground, adding rustic cabins and a small boat launch and breakwater. The two couples coowned and operated the resort where Aurea was also the manager for over

30 years. People from near and far returned year after year to camp or stay in a cabin, many telling how they so enjoyed Aurea’s friendly and helpful hospitality and Bud’s great stories. Aurea loved people and loved pleasing them. Her home “office” was always open, day or night. She was always willing to help anyone who needed help, and she never neglected one single phone call. She used to say “the customer is always right.” In the midst of Aurea’s busy every day life, she happily accepted Bud’s elderly ailing parents into her home, caring for them completely for several years until each of their passing. She was a woman who always put others’ needs before her own, and she never complained about a single thing. After retiring in 1993, Bud and Aurea’s son, Joe, took over managing the resort. They enjoyed many good years together thereafter, spending time with family and close friends until Bud’s passing on March 23, 2001. In Aurea’s younger years, she loved to sing and performed in several light operas, concerts, grange plays and weddings. She had a beautiful voice. Throughout her life she was active in her church and in her community. In 1947, she became a charter member of the Crescent Grange, where she loved to take part in the many gatherings, potlucks, flea markets and meetings. She was a member for 63 years. She was also active in the PTA, the Joyce Ladies Club, 4-H, Boy Scouts and the Joyce Daze Annual Blackberry Festival. Most of all, Aurea loved her family. She was a constant source of positive thinking and unconditional

acceptance and love. She loved God, keeping her faith always. During her last years, she enjoyed spending winters in Arizona with her daughter, Jeannie, and son-in-law, Andy, until she became too weak to travel. Aurea passed peacefully from this life in her Joyce home surrounded by her loved ones on December 22, 2010, at the age of 92. She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 57 years, Francis “Bud” Schmitt, and her sisters and brothers-in-law, Virginia and Dee Fauver, Stella Daigle and Lucille and Claude Jarvis. She is survived by her son, Joseph Lee Schmitt, and life partner, Ronee Little; daughter, Jeannie Marie, and son-in-law, Robert “Andy” Anderson; along with four grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; and her loving daughters-in-law, Margaret Schmitt and Kathy Hamilton. Aurea was a very special person. Some would say an angel here on Earth. To know Aurea was to love her. She will be forever remembered for her love of life, her sweet kindness and her giving nature, and she will be missed beyond measure. The family wishes to give a special thank you to Aurea’s loving caregivers, Heather Poats and Me’Chelle Allred, and also to Volunteer Hospice. A funeral Mass celebration will be held at Queen of Angels Catholic Church, 209 West 11th Street, Port Angeles, on January 8, 2011, at 11:30 a.m. A memorial gathering will follow at the same location. Please send any memorials to Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County, 540 East Eighth Street, Port Angeles, WA 98362.

Resolving to be irresolute in new year I KNOW WHAT you’re thinking, and it isn’t pretty. But another thing you’re thinking is that we’re one day away from breaking last year’s New Year’s resolution — never to make another New Year’s resolution — by making more New Year’s resolutions. And we’re going to do that because we think we should and we think everybody else is going to, which is a perception that certainly served us well in our teenage years; nonetheless, many of us will fall victim to the feeling that because we are about to have a new year, we should also embark upon a new life. Thus, many of us will leap at the opportunity to further frustrate, disappoint and sully our image of ourselves by, once again, failing to accomplish what we have, to date, failed to accomplish, so allow me offer to some unsolicited advice: Don’t do it.

Birthday Joyce Herman Hanusa Port Angeles resident Joyce (Reed) Herman Hanusa will celebrate her 90th birthday Saturday, Jan. 1. In 1924, at the age of 3, she took her first road trip, moving from Oklahoma to Port Angeles with her Mrs. parents and Hanusa four siblings. The family first lived on Mount Angeles Road and then in several houses around town until her father, Don Reed, built the

family home on U.S. Highway 101 near the Flying Saucer Restaurant, now Traylor’s Restaurant. She grew up playing in Tumwater and Peabody creeks and at Hollywood Beach, where she remembers the native dwellings. She played violin in high school and graduated from Roosevelt High School in 1938. She remembers being excused from class to witness President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s trip through Port Angeles. After high school, she met and married Ed Herman. In 1941, they bought a closed-up old grocery store and created their home for the next 27 years, Parkway Grocery, at the corner of Eighth and Race streets.

Mrs. Hanusa has been a longtime member of St. Matthew Lutheran Church, working with ladies aid associations and preparing many meals for potlucks and Monday Musicale, hosting visitors in her home and supporting the church’s efforts. Now, she spends her time keeping a beautiful home, fixing smaller meals and keeping

her husband in pies and dinner rolls. Mrs. Hanusa supplied many new babies with crocheted blankets and afghans and continues to provide charity fundraisers with crocheted pot holders. Besides her daughters, Mrs. Hanusa has three sons-in-law, six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, all of whom have come to visit her since August, coming from Tennessee, Texas, Wisconsin and Washington. She was always ready to baby-sit grandchildren when they were younger and loves to sit down to a game of Scrabble. These days, touring down a country road, picnicking at Hurricane Ridge or reminiscing are some of her

favorite pastimes.
