Dam removal: Eight months until start Montana contractor looks over project, housing prospects
Canyon Dam, which is eight miles up river from the lower dam, will begin later, but before the Elwha Dam is completely torn down. The $351.4 million project, which is intended to restore salmon runs, is the largest of its kind in the nation’s history. Asked Wednesday if the tear-down project, which was first scheduled to begin in 2004, remains on schedule, Maynes said there is “no doubt” Barnard Construction employees will begin the project in less than eight months, on Sept. 15.

OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — A Barnard Construction Co. supervisor visited the North Olympic Peninsula earlier this month as the Bozeman, Mont., firm continued preparations for tearing down the Elwha and Glines Canyon dams. “We were meeting with potential subcontractors and vendors and different things like that, and looking for places to live,” said Project Manager Brian Krohmer, who was in Port Angeles on Jan. 12-13. The company also has begun seeking housing for the Montana employees who will be among the 40 to 50 workers the National Park Service has estimated will be needed for the project, Krohmer said. The number of employees who will tear down the dams at any given time “will fluctuate depending on what exactly is going on,” Krohmer said. They will begin bringing down the 108-foot Elwha Dam beginning Sept. 15. Barnard has until mid-September 2014 to complete the project, Krohmer and Olympic National Park spokeswoman Barb Maynes said.

Some locals to be employed Krohmer does not know how many local employees will be hired and how many will be from Montana, but he said that the company will employ local craftspeople and subcontractors, adding that the company is committed to supporting local businesses. Barnard’s mix of employees will depend on the workload and the availability of local workers, Krohmer said. Jobs will be welcome on the North Olympic Peninsula, where Clallam County’s jobless rate rose from 9.7 percent in November to 10.1 percent in December, while Jefferson County’s rate increased to 9.2 in December from 9.1 in November. In comparison, Gallatin County, where Bozeman is the county seat, had a November unemployment rate of 7.4 percent. Figures for December will be available this week. Turn

In fewer than eight weeks, more details will begin emerging on how the Elwha and Glines Canyon dams will be torn down to free the Elwha River for the first time in almost 100 years. Barnard Construction Co. Inc. will start submitting construction planning documents to the National Park Service in mid-March, company Project Manager Brian Krohmer and Olympic National Park spokeswoman Barb Maynes said last week. Those plans will spell out stages and time lines for the $26.9 million deconstruction project and include how the dams will be torn down and the equipment that will be deployed to make it happen. It’s new territory for Barnard, which has built dams but never torn them down. “The biggest challenge is probably dealing with the water, especially with what we’ve seen with the recent flooding,” Krohmer said. “Just managing the water flow around the work is probably the most challenging aspect.” One date that seems certain is the day that the electric switch will be turned off.

PORT TOWNSEND — A proposal to establish a community-operated mercantile store in the downtown space to be vacated by Swain’s Outdoor will be addressed in a private meeting this week. “We are in the research stage and are looking at the possibility of whether this will be a good idea,” said Port Townsend Mayor Michelle Sandoval, a member of a community group — Local Investment Opportunity Network — or Sandoval LION. The Wednesday meeting is not open to the public, although public meetings would take place if the idea develops, Sandoval said. Swain’s Outdoors — which has offered sporting goods, housewares and clothing in downtown Port Townsend since 1996 — announced Jan. 7 that it was going out of business. The lease expires in September. Store manager Grant Cable said that a sublease agreement would be considered. To replace the landmark store, LION — which is part of North Olympic Peninsula’s Local 20/20 — has come up with an idea for a co-op offering appliances, furniture and other items. Sandoval said the specifics of the proposal had not been developed, including inventory, management or membership structure.
Co-op model Only the concept exists, which is the co-op model where the store will be owned by its members. It will not be exclusive, elitist or expensive. “I hope we can offer a low buy-in so a more people can participate,” she said. As a comparison, the Food Co-op requires its members to make a $100 capital investment in the business, payable all at once or for as little as $2 a month.

Gabor going home after amputation Zsa Zsa Gabor’s publicist said the actress is going home from the hospital, a week after doctors amputated most of her right leg. John Blanchette said doctors are pleased with Gabor’s recovery and she was transported Gabor by ambulance Saturday evening back to her Bel-Air, Calif., mansion. Doctors at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center decided to amputate Jan. 14 when a persistent infection wouldn’t heal. She had been expected to remain in the hospital for at least two weeks. Blanchette said the 93-year-old “Moulin Rouge” and “Queen of Outer Space” star will be monitored daily by nurses. He said Gabor is happy
to be heading home. Gabor broke her hip and had replacement surgery in July. She has been hospitalized several times for swelling in her legs and blood clots throughout her body.

Mr. Mauser told his family that some of the things in the miniseries, like the locations of buildings, weren’t quite what he remembered from being there in person. But before that, “he never talked about it for years and years and years,” said Zahn, president of the Midwest chapter of the 101st Airborne Division Association. Born Dec. 18, 1916, in LaSalle, Ill., Mr. Mauser was drafted in 1942 and volunteered for the 101st Airborne Division. He was assigned to Company E, 506th Regiment — Easy Company – which participated in the D-Day invasion of France and the follow-up Operation Market Garden. The 101st also helped defend Bastogne during the Battle of the Bulge. Historian Stephen Ambrose interviewed Easy Company leader Dick Winters for the 1992 book “Band of Brothers,” upon which the HBO miniseries that began airing in September 2001 was based.

1936 (75 years ago) When advanced ticket sales for the President’s Birthday Ball opened in Port Angeles today, Mayor Ralph Davis purchased the first $1 ticket from John Kringlen, general chairman of the ball. Proceeds from Birthday Ball dances throughout the United States on President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s birthday, Jan. 30, will go to the March of Dimes for infantile paralysis victims and research to combat the polio disease. In Sequim, J.L.

1961 (50 years ago) Gov. Albert Rosellini’s request for $5.5 million to repair and complete con-
struction of the Hood Canal Bridge was filed in the state Legislature. The money would come out of the Motor Vehicle Fund, with the proviso that it would be repaid from a bond issue or toll revenues on the floating bridge — even if tolls have to be kept longer. It’s the first step on a proposal for paying off the cost of repairing the stormdamaged bridge components and finishing the bridge, which had been scheduled to be completed last year.

Briefly: Nation Obama to focus on job growth, U.S. competition WASHINGTON — Under pressure to energize the economy, President Barack Obama said Saturday he will use his State of the Union address to outline an agenda to create jobs now and boost American competitiveness over the long term. Heading quickly into re-election mode, Obama is expected to use Tuesday’s prime-time speech to promote spending on innovation Obama while also promising to reduce the national debt and cooperate with emboldened Republicans. “I’m focused on making sure the economy is working for everybody, for the entire American family,” Obama said Saturday in an uncommon preview of his speech, offered up in an online video to his supporters late Saturday afternoon. The president announced that the economy would be the main topic of his speech, a nod to how important that issue is to the country’s standing and his own as well.
Botched abortions PHILADELPHIA — Just days after Marie Smith got an abortion at a West Philadelphia clinic, her stomach swelled and she began vomiting green stuff. Her mother, Johnnie Mae Smith, took her to a hospital
where doctors rushed the unconscious 20-year-old into surgery to remove numerous fetal parts that were left inside her body, causing a potentially fatal infection. The doctor who performed the abortion, Kermit Gosnell, turned up at the hospital with his checkbook, aiming to settle immediately, the mother said. Instead, Johnnie Mae Smith chased him away, vowing to sue. Later, her daughter got just $3,000 — after lawyer fees — from a $5,000 settlement. Gosnell, by contrast, took in at least $1.8 million a year from his corner-store medical practice at the Women’s Medical Society, which prosecutors who charged him with eight counts of murder last week called his drug mill by day and abortion mill by night. “His entire practice showed nothing but a callous disdain for the lives of his patients,” Philadelphia prosecutors wrote in a grand jury report. Gosnell was charged with killing seven babies born alive and with the death of Karnamaya Mongar, who prosecutors said died in 2009 after a botched abortion at the clinic.

Briefly: World Another attempt at nuclear talks with Iran fails ISTANBUL — The collapse of another attempt at international outreach to Iran on Saturday has left world powers with few options except to wait — and hope that the bite of sanctions will persuade Tehran to reconsider its refusal to stop activities that could be harnessed to make nuclear weapons. But their patience could be tested. While the U.S. and others said that Iran already is suffering from the wide range of financial and trade sanctions, travel bans and other penalties imposed by the U.N., the U.S., the EU and others, the Islamic Republic shows no sign of bending. Uranium enrichment lies at the heart of the dispute. Low-enriched uranium — at around 3.5 percent — can be used to fuel a reactor to generate electricity, which Iran said is the intention of its program. But if uranium is further enriched to around 90 percent purity, it can be used to develop a nuclear warhead. Iran came to the Istanbul talks with six world powers Friday declaring it would not even consider freezing uranium enrichment — and left the negotiations Saturday repeating the same mantra.
Protest in Yemen ADEN, Yemen — Drawing inspiration from the revolt in Tunisia, thousands of Yemenis
fed up with their president’s 32-year rule demanded his ouster Saturday in a noisy demonstration that appeared to be the first large-scale public challenge to the strongman. Clashes also broke out Saturday in Algeria, as opposition activists there tried to copy the tactics of their Tunisian neighbors, who forced their longtime leader to flee the country more than a week ago. The protests in Yemen appeared to be the first of their kind. The nation’s 23 million citizens have many grievances: they are the poorest people in the Arab world, the government is widely seen as corrupt and is reviled for its alliance with the United States in fighting alQaida, there are few political freedoms and the country is rapidly running out of water.
Pope on marriage VATICAN CITY — Pope Benedict XVI told priests Saturday to do a better job counseling would-be spouses to ensure their marriages last and said no one has an absolute right to a wedding. Benedict made the comments in his annual speech to the Roman Rota, the Vatican tribunal that decides marriage annulments. Benedict acknowledged that the problems that would allow for a marriage to be annulled cannot always be identified beforehand. But he said better pre-marriage counseling, which the Catholic Church requires of the faithful, could help avoid a “vicious circle” of invalid marriages. The Associated Press

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., is carried from a plane after arriving in Houston on Friday where she was transferred to a rehabilitation center.
Rehab to be hardest work of Giffords’ life Congresswoman progressing well with therapy, doctor says By Marilynn Marchione The Associated Press
HOUSTON — She inspired the nation with her fairy-tale recovery. Now, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords must inspire herself through the ordeal of rehabilitation, and doctors say it’s likely to be the hardest work she’ll ever do. Just a couple of decades ago, rehab was little more than physical therapy for shuffling stroke victims and wheelchair-bound quadriplegics, a last resort after doctors had done all they could. Now, it’s a sophisticated science at the forefront of treating people like Giffords, who was shot in the forehead two weeks ago while meeting constituents in Tucson, Ariz. An early start on rehab is key to limiting permanent damage, and the Houston hospital where she will be treated uses high-tech tools to push the brain to rewire itself.
The Arizona congresswoman arrived Friday at the Texas Medical Center, where she is expected to spend a few days in intensive care before moving to TIRR Memorial Hermann rehab hospital. Dr. Gerard Francisco, the hospital’s chief medical officer, said Saturday that she was “even more alert today” and progressing nicely with therapy.
Frustrating process Instead of doctors making you well, rehab means “teaching you how to help yourself” to get your life back, said Dr. William Donovan, a former medical director of the rehab hospital who still works there part time. It’s frustrating when your muscles and mind won’t work the way you want them to. Emotional challenges, posttraumatic stress and physical problems like seizures, headaches and infections loom as risks that
could complicate her recovery. No one can predict how she will do, or what her “new normal” will be, as the hospital’s CEO, Carl Josehart puts it. A CT scan on arrival showed “really minimal” injury for the mortal wound she had, said Dr. Dong Kim, neurosurgery chief for University of Texas Health Science Center.
‘Really minimal’ injury The type of bullet, its path, good trauma care and her general health before the injury bode well for her, but “a bigger impact on recovery is the amount of family and social support after the injury,” said Mark Sherer, a neuropsychologist at the rehab hospital. After doing a head-to-toe mapping of her injuries and abilities, “we’ll have to figure out how to meet each and every deficit,” Francisco said. The first step: setting a goal, such as being able to live independently or to return to work or school. “We try to tailor that to what’s realistic,” Josehart said.
Husband has possible claim to part of lottery winnings By Nicholas K. Geranios The Associated Press
RATHDRUM, Idaho — Holly Lahti burst into the spotlight a week ago in a feel-good story about a single mother who won a $190 million Mega Millions jackpot. Then came the mugshot: a thin young woman with disheveled brown hair, sporting a black eye and cuts and bruises on her face and neck. It turned out she was separated from a man who court records indicated had abused her and who now has a possible claim to some of the money through a quirk in Idaho law. Lahti, 29, went underground with her two daughters immediately after learning she had won half of a $380 million jackpot in the Jan. 4 drawing. She has not been seen or heard in public since. The mugshot was taken after
Lahti and her husband, Josh Lahti, both were arrested during a domestic dispute in 2003. The charges were later dropped, and the couple have long been Holly Lahti separated. Josh Lahti said he did not know Holly had won the lottery until told by a reporter from The Associated Press last week. “That’s awesome! I won’t have Josh Lahti to pay child support!” he said upon learning his wife was rich. As it turns out, the husband could be entitled to a chunk of the winnings because he and Lahti never divorced and were never legally separated for that matter. Idaho’s murky law on the issue
requires a divorce filing to grant separation, which is a key factor in splitting up assets between spouses. While the lawyers sort out the issue in the months ahead, Holly Lahti can rejoice in the fact that her troubled past has given way to riches beyond her wildest dreams. She quit her job as a customer service representative for a bank after winning the jackpot, then she asked family and friends not to talk with reporters. She did not appear at the Jan. 12 press conference in Boise in which her good fortune was revealed. In a brief telephone interview, Josh Lahti said the two started dating in high school and got married in 2001. Holly Lahti still lives in the couple’s home in Rathdrum, a town in the Idaho Panhandle.

World: Algerians against ban on public gathering
A sports bar owner in Minnesota is showing his support for the Green Bay Packers in this weekend’s game against the Chicago Bears in a very literal way — by roasting a bear. Blake Montpetit, the co-owner of Tiffany Sports Lounge in St. Paul, said he plans to cook a 180-pound black bear in a pig-roaster over hickory and charcoal today. He said his cousin shot it in northern Wisconsin during bear hunting season, which runs in September and October, and then froze it. Montpetit said he planned to serve the meat to customers, but the state health department rejected the plan because the meat is unprocessed.
The woman who raised a child kidnapped from a New York hospital two decades ago has violated her probation and is believed to be on the run from authorities, North Carolina officials said Friday. A warrant was issued for her arrest. Corrections officials tried repeatedly to contact Ann Pettway after finding out that investigators want to question her in the 1987 abduction of the infant, who’s now grown and was recently reunited with her long-lost family. Pettway is on probation because of a conviction for attempted embezzlement and is not allowed to leave the state.
Tunisia’s once-feared police staged a rally of their own Saturday, demanding better salaries and insisting they’re not to blame for shooting deaths among protesters who forced the North African country’s longtime autocrat to flee. At least 2,000 police rallied in downtown Tunis, an epicenter of protest and clashes between youths and police that forced President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali to quit the country he ruled with an iron fist for 23 years. It was a significant development for Tunisia, where police under Ben Ali were widely feared. The rally took place near the Interior Ministry, a symbol of the dread his regime inspired.
Helmeted riot police armed with batons and shields Saturday clashed with rock- and chair-throwing protesters who tried to march in defiance of Algeria’s ban on public gatherings. At least 19 people were injured, the government said, but an opposition party official put the figure at more than 40. Algeria has been among the many North African and Middle Eastern countries hit by shows of resistance against their autocratic leaders after a young Tunisian man set himself on fire last month, triggering a wave of protests that led Tunisia’s longtime strongman to flee the country.

Sequim council Evidence in murders looks into future not given, judge says By Tom Callis
By Jeff Chew
SEQUIM — City Council members shared their visions of Sequim’s future, with hopes ranging from a new city hall on West Cedar Street between Second Avenue and North Sequim Avenue to traffic improvements leading into and through the city. Council members exchanged thoughts during the opening of a two-day retreat at The Lodge of Sherwood Village, which started Friday afternoon and ended Saturday. “Sequim will be the place to stop, shop and come to on the Peninsula,” said council member Don Hall, who Hall along with the entire council attended the annual retreat with City Manager Steve Burkett and professional facilitator Julia Novak. Borrowing from the National Public Radio program, “This I Believe,” Novak asked council members to relate how they believed in Sequim and its future.
Sequim in 1974 and remembered a town of two traffic lights, a railroad running through where the Safeway supermarket stands today and a weak economy — suggested that the city work with Clallam County to improve traffic patterns. “The way the road infrastructure is designed, everything has to come through Sequim,” Huizinga said. “We haven’t planned for that,” he added. He voiced concern about heavy traffic on Washington Street and Sequim Avenue. With more than 20,000 vehicle trips per day passing Sequim High School on North Sequim Avenue, Huizinga said traffic was back to what it was before the Highway 101 “bypass” was constructed. “We need to sit down with the county and figure out how to develop traffic patterns,” Huizinga said, adding that should be done in the next two years. “I think a lot of the future of Sequim depends on what we do,” he said. Huizinga said that the city staff has more time to plan now that it is not inundated with development proposals as it was between 2002 and 2007.
Peninsula Daily News
Mayor Pro Tem Laura Dubois, agreeing that Sequim has a traffic problem, called for a truck route so commercial trucks would avoid driving through residential neighborhoods south of Washington Street. She also called for an annexation policy that would ensure that adding areas would not be a financial liability to the city. Mayor Ken Hays recalled that one of the council’s priorities set last year was to rethink transportation. “I feel like we are trying to work on that,” Hays said. He said the Planning Commission, which advises the council on such development matter, should be allowed to “think freely.” Burkett said the council will meet with the Planning Commission on Jan. 31 to discuss issues. He said one of the city’s goals is to hire a consultant for a transportation master plan within the next two months.

Council member Bill sphere. White-collar jobs will Huizinga — who moved to Hall called for downtown improvements, extending water and sewer infrastructure to the proposed expansion of Sequim Marine Science Lab at Sequim Bay, commonly known as Battelle. That same infrastructure should be extended to the proposed John Wayne family resort near the Port of Port Angeles’ John Wayne Marina, Hall said. He spoke strongly about forming a new park district, professionally operated with multiuse fields run by the district. Hall also expressed hopes for an expanded Sequim Open Aire Market extending to Washington Street. Hall voiced support for siting, designing and building a new city hall in the vicinity of the existing West Cedar Street building. He said he saw a downtown improvement plan that opened Pioneer Park on Washington Street to the public.
“If we would stop thinking about what we believe and start thinking about what people like and listen to them, that would help us fulfill their wishes,” he said. Council member Ted Miller said city leaders must take “future blight” seriously. “We need to find ways to encourage improvements on most deteriorating structures, and provide incentives to replace physically and functionally obsolescent buildings,” Miller said. “Lessons learned in the downtown plan improvements may be invaluable in other sections of town.”
Town’s ‘greatest asset’ Miller said he recognized Sequim’s senior citizens as the city’s “greatest asset.” “Sequim has weathered the recession as well as it has largely because of the steady income of our retirees,” he said in support of marketing the city primarily as a retirement and tourism center, which he saw as a way to weather bad economic times. Dubois said she believes the council needs to communicate better with residents. She said she not only needs to work on her own communications skills but that she hoped city staff also would listen better. “Our citizens and stakeholders need to share their views,” she said. Burkett told council members that city staff morale has improved because council members have a better relationship with staff.

PORT ANGELES — The Clallam County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office did not meet its legal obligation to provide evidence to the defense in the double-murder trial of Darold R. Stenson 17 years ago, according to Judge Ken Williams. The Clallam County Superior Court judge, who presided over the 1994 trial, said in a report sent Thursday to the state Supreme Court that the defense should have been provided a photograph showing the lead investigator wearing Stenson’s blood-stained jeans and FBI lab bench notes. But, as he previously has said, Williams wrote he doesn’t think the evidence would have changed the outcome of the trial. Stenson, 58, is on death row at a state prison in Walla Walla after he was convicted of fatally shooting his wife and business partner on his exotic bird farm in Sequim in 1993. The Supreme Court — which will determine whether the death-row inmate should have a retrial — asked the judge to determine if the evidence in question was “suppressed.” Williams said the evidence was suppressed by legal standards, although there is no evidence that the prosecution knew about the photograph. The bench notes, on the other hand, weren’t provided even though a request had been made, Williams said. Sheryl McCloud, one of Stenson’s attorneys, said the Supreme Court will have to find that the evidence would have been enough to undermine confidence in the verdict for the 58-year-old man to get a new trial. “We’ve proven that the state suppressed the evidence,” she said. “I don’t think they will disturb that factual ruling. “So our task is to explain why suppressing the fact that evidence is tainted matters.” McCloud was referring to
Caregivers: It might not require surgery By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News
SEQUIM — A bald eagle that was shot near Beaver last month continues to heal, and wildlife officials are as optimistic as they’ve ever been about the bird’s prognosis. The juvenile male nearly died when a portion of its left wing was shattered. It is being cared for at a Greywolf Veterinary Hospital in Sequim.

“As of today, indications are that the bald eagle might be able to heal the fracture in his left wing on his own and may not require surgery,” said Matthew Randazzo, public relations director for the Northwest Raptor & Wildlife Center in Sequim, on Friday. “It’s still early, but our hope is that the eagle will be able to begin his full rehabilitation at our center in a few weeks.” The raptor center rescued the bird after it was found shot near Beaver on Dec. 15.
‘Wound has healed’
who illegally shot the bald eagle continues. Bald eagles were removed from the federal list of threatened and endangered species in 2007 but remain protected under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, according to U.S. Department of Fish & Wildlife. A first-offense violation of the act can result in a fine of $100,000, imprisonment for one year or both. Penalties increase for additional offenses, and a second violation of the act is a felony. Tips leading to the capture of the person who shot this eagle can be sent to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, which is investigating the case, at 877-933-9847, or matthew@ nwraptorcenter.com. The raptor center is raising money to take care of the young eagle, as well as other birds in its care. Those interested in donating to help for the care of the eagle may visit NWRaptorCenter.com or Facebook.com/Northwest RaptorCenter.
“The wound has healed, and the fractured ulna bone in the eagle’s left wing so far appears to be calcifying over the fracture,” said Jaye Moore, Raptor & Wildlife Center director. “He has an awesome attitude, is eating very well on his own and is getting really talkative and expressive. “We don’t know how his wing and the surrounding soft tissue will handle rehabilitation, but right now everything’s going as well as ________ we could hope.” The eagle was believed to Reporter Rob Ollikainen can be have been shot by a.22-cali- reached at 360-417-3537 or at rob. ber rifle. ollikainen@peninsuladailynews.

have been changed. Kelly, as a deputy prosecutor, helped file Stenson’s arrest warrant. She said that was the extent of her involvement in the case. The bench notes are of significance to the defense because they show that the FBI agent who testified during the trial did not perform the test for gun-shot residue, contrary to what was believed at the time. Williams also wrote last year that he doesn’t think the evidence would have changed the outcome. The Supreme Court asked him to readdress the issue to determine whether evidence was suppressed.

the photograph that she alleges shows evidence contamination. The investigator donned the jeans at the request of a blood-spatter expert who thought it would help determine whether Stenson got blood on his pants by kneeling by the victims or attacking them. By doing so, Stenson’s attorneys argue, he contaminated evidence by not wearing gloves. Six days after the photograph was taken, the FBI found gun-shot residue in the right front pocket of the pants. The same pocket is seen turned inside out in the photograph. County Prosecuting Attorney Deb Kelly said she is “pleased” with Williams “ultimate conclusion” that the outcome of the trial wouldn’t

Boats: ‘To me, these things are like Picassos’ Continued from A1
Exhibit on display
Tollefson, who is physically fragile but mentally alert, held up well during the birthday luncheon, reported organizer Donna Coffey, but his stamina tends to give out after about an hour. He still drinks a daily scotch at 5 p.m., but on Saturday he took it at 3, she said, and then had a liedown.
A SPECIAL EXHIBIT about legendary boatbuilder R.M. “Tolly” Tollefson’s life and work is on display on the second floor of the Northwest Maritime Center’s Heritage and Resource building, 431 Water St., Port Townsend. The exhibit will be open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays through March. It honors Tollefson, founder of Tollycraft Yachts, who will turn 100 on Monday, and contains drawings, news clippings, photographs and stories about him. For more information, see www.nwmaritime. org/ or phone 360-385-3628. Peninsula Daily News
Maritime center display The younger crowd — like the tall, tanned and white-maned Jerry Romney, 81 — took the party to the Northwest Maritime Center in Port Townsend, where a display of everything Tollycraft adorned the walls. Romney, of Salt Lake City and cousin to Mitt, the Republican presidential hopeful, is finally ready to let go of his 44-foot Tollycraft, moored on Lake Powell. He’s owned six over the last 51 years — “my boats are all called Why Not?” — but “I’m getting too old to take care of it,” he said with a frown. The Tollycraft tradition is more than a bond between people, it seems to be a bond between people and their boats as well. Some say Tollycraft own-
Tolly Time II, owned by Jane and John Semasko of Gig Harbor, is an example of the famed boats. ers like to bond together just as owners of certain vintage cars do, with an emphasis on admiring beauty, reliability and, as Caren Holtby, put it “timelessness.” There’s something about its shape,” said the Canadian, who owns the 43-foot Seawind. “It’s modern. Its shape has held the test of time,” she said. For Steve Monrad of Anacortes, Tollycraft boats are art. “To me, these things are
like Picassos,” he said, and so are all the vintage brochures and other memorabilia the company produced in its heyday. Monrad is known as the quintessential collector of all things Tollycraft among members of the two U.S. Tollycraft clubs, one in Portland, Ore., and one in Seattle, and the northerners who are less formally organized but just as enthusiastic. Lynn and Mark Vanderwall of Mercer Island and
their three adolescent daughters have been making the 1981, 48-foot Margaret Rose the focus of their summers for nearly a decade. “We call it camping on water,” Lynn said. Mary, who is 10, “learned to crawl up the stairs on that boat,” her mother recalled with a smile.
Bought boat in 1967 Not only are the boats known to be well-built, attractive and timeless,
they’re also family-friendly. Tolly is credited in many stories for his interest in customer service, soliciting feedback which resulted in windowed galleys so wives in charge of meals could see out and converse with everyone on board. Tollycrafters believe Marge Fulton of Redondo Beach, Calif., is likely the person who has owned the same Tollycraft for the longest period of time, and so does she. Fulton moors her 23-foot cruiser in Anacortes now, and comes up for four months every summer. But she had been trailering it since she bought it new at the Los Angeles Boat
Show in 1967, and she’s known Tolly nearly as long. “I so wanted to meet him and when I did, he did exactly what people do with cars. He kicked the hull of my boat the way they kick tires. “We’ve been friends ever since.” Fulton said she’s not sure of the origin of the Tollycraft’s aura. “I don’t know what it is except it’s an extremely nice, well-riding boat,” she said. “And I’ve been in some rough waters with mine.”

being torn down differently. Those plans could change if Barnard comes up with better ideas, Brian Winters, the Park Service’s river restoration project manager, said earlier this month. For the Elwha Dam, completed in 1913, Lake Aldwell behind the dam would be lowered 15 feet and a diversion channel dug. Newly built coffer dams would direct the reservoir’s remaining water into the diversion channel, separat-
ing it from sediment behind the dam and allowing the sediment to be removed and the dam demolished. More than 19 million cubic yards of sediment have built up behind the dams. Glines Canyon Dam, completed 14 years later, would be notched and Lake Mills behind it drained incrementally, bit by bit, until the dam is gone and the Elwha River returned to its unobstructed state. Barnard’s construction
plans will be approved by the National Park Service’s Denver Service Center by a date that has not been determined, Maynes said. Next will be a pre-construction meeting between Barnard and Park Service officials. “That’s a critical piece where everyone sits down and the contracting officer describes the term of the contract and the methods, and if there are questions that the contracting officer and the contractor might
have, and how communication will flow and information will flow,” Maynes said. Barnard is expected to begin bringing in equipment for the project in late spring or early summer. Work demolishing the dams is to begin Sept. 15 and be completed by Sept. 15, 2014.

Dams: Removal employees paid prevailing wages The federal government owns both dams, although the lower dam is outside Olympic National Park boundaries. Since the Elwha River begins inside the park, and the Glines Canyon Dam is within its boundaries, the National Park Service has control over the entire project.
Last August, Barnard was awarded a $26.9 million contract to tear down the dams in a comparatively small but hugely visible part of the river restoration project, which is intended to restore the Elwha River’s salmon habitat. Spawning runs have been reduced from 400,000
fish before the dams were completed — the Elwha Dam in 1913, the Glines Canyon Dam in 1927 — to today’s minuscule run of 3,000. Fish ladders and a hatchery built after the dams were constructed did little to replenish the stock, and the 1992 Elwha River Eco-

Brewfest tickets PORT TOWNSEND — The seventh annual Strange Brewfest, which is moving a block from its former location in Port Townsend and adding another night of revelry,
has advance tickets on sale now. Beginning Friday, the Strange Brewfest will be hosted by the American Legion at 209 Monroe St., one block away from its former venue at Water Street Brewing and Ale House. Usually a two-night affair, this year’s event starts with a party featuring live music at 7 p.m. Friday. It continues at 1 p.m. Saturday and goes on until midnight. It resumes again at 1 p.m. Sunday, with doors open until 7 p.m. The $25 admission tickets can be purchased in advance online at www. strangebrewfestpt.com. Tickets can be purchased at the door beginning Friday. One of the events at the
Strange Brewfest will be Silverdale’s Silver City Brewery’s “Kill-a-Keg” at Sirens, 823 Water St., at 6:30 p.m. Friday. Once the keg of WhooPass Double IPA is tapped, the beer will continue to flow until the keg is empty or everyone who joins has a glass. Silver City Brewery Brewmaster “Big Daddy” Don Spencer will then give a toast to the occasion. Tickets are $6 and include a Silver City Brewery pint glass and a beer. The keg to be “killed” holds about 50 beers, so the cap to receive a pint glass will be about 50 people. Tickets can be purchased in advance at Sirens, or by 6 p.m. on Friday. Peninsula Daily News

MARYSVILLE — A 6-year-old boy has died after a float plane crashed and flipped upon landing in Lake Goodwin near Marysville. Snohomish County search and rescue Commander Rodney Rochon said that the boy’s father managed to escape the
plane, but the boy was trapped inside under water for nearly 25 minutes Saturday afternoon. Divers pulled him from the plane and he was rushed to an Everett hospital, where he later died. Rochon also said the wheels on the float plane were extended, and that could have caused enough drag to flip the aircraft.

Changes in works for Juan De Fuca fest By Diane Urbani de la Paz
Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — It’s been an avalanche every morning for weeks. Dancers, players, singers, jugglers. Drummers, strummers and people who don’t fit into any musical category. They’ve been sending applications to what will be a different kind of Juan de Fuca Festival of the Arts this Memorial Day weekend, with fewer — but costlier — artists and a change in the venues. Dan Maguire, the new executive director of the 18-year-old festival, is taking it downtown — “to get a more community feel,” as he says. Maguire envisions a compact block of events concentrated around downtown, four days — May 27 through 30 — of music that lasts late into the nights. But “the sad news,” Maguire added, “is we’re not going to use the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center and the Port Angeles Community Playhouse,” two venues on East Lauridsen Boulevard. Including those stages in past festivals made it so fans had to either drive or take a shuttle bus away from the festival locus around the Vern Burton Community Center, 308 E. Fourth St., the City Council chamber stage next door and the Elks Naval Lodge downtown at 131 E. First St. Juan de Fuca will add a new stage this year at Studio Bob, the gallery upstairs at 118½ E. Front St. The space will be filled with music for “the younger crowd,” as in teenagers and people in their 20s and 30s, Maguire said. At the same time, numer-
Hot Club Sandwich is, from left, Tim Wetmiller, Kevin Connor, James Schneider, Ray Wood, Matt Sircely and Greg Ruby. ous other downtown shops and cafes will be part of Young at Art, a nonj uried children’s art show with, he predicts, about 1,000 entries. As for the bands and other performing groups who make Juan de Fuca a musical feast, they will be on festival stages during the day and evening — and then Maguire plans to book them into downtown night spots such as Bar N9ne, Bella Italia and the Kokopelli Grill. Fans with festival wristbands will get in free, while others can pay a small cover charge. This downtown focus was something Maguire said both he and his board of directors sought. “We wanted to tighten it up more,” he said. “To me, what is really powerful about festivals is the community vibe.” The fine arts center and playhouse “are wonderful
stages. The artists liked them,” said board president Martha Hastings. “But going to them meant leaving the festival. . . . They were just too far away.” Studio Bob, the Elks, Vern Burton and the chamber stage are within walking distance of one another, which benefits fans as well as the volunteers who make the festival run, Hastings said. “It will be nice for some of the folks coming from Victoria,” she added. “Hopefully we’ll get more folks” from across the Strait of Juan de Fuca. “I am disappointed,” said Jake Seniuk, director of the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center. The center, which marks its 25th anniversary this year, has been part of Juan de Fuca since the first festival. When asked whether

PORT ANGELES — For the first time, the Juan de Fuca Festival of the Arts is offering a significant discount on full passes to the Memorial Day weekend of music, dance, food and other visual arts from the North Olympic Peninsula and across the world. Passes purchased by April 30 will sell for $40, which means a saving of up to $15, said Dan Maguire, executive director of the festival. Also new this year: Full passes will include admission to downtown-area night spots where festival bands will play after the Juan de Fuca venues, such as the Vern Burton Community Center and Elks Naval Lodge, close for the evening. Maguire is booking the acts into places such as Bar N9ne, so festival life will go on late into the night. Prices on passes will rise to $50 from May 1 and 26. During the event from May 27 through 30, fullfestival passes will sell for $55, while fans can purchase lower-priced one-day
tickets for the Friday, Saturday, Sunday or Monday. The current $40 full-pass price is what “you’d pay for one day at a concert in Seattle,” Maguire added. To buy online, visit the festival website at www.

Firm in the lineup are the gypsy jazz group Hot Club Sandwich, bluegrassy world music band the Paperboys, San Francisco folk-rock outfit Blame Sally, flamenco-Balkan-gypsy troupe Tambura Rasa, rocking bluegrass band Poor Man’s Whiskey, Frazey Ford of the Be Good Tanyas and Kazum, purveyors of “acro-
who to put where when during the weekend. The Juan de Fuca Festival, founded 18 years ago by Karen Hanan and run by Anna Manildi from 2001 through last year, has built an excellent reputation, Maguire added. “I’m stunned by the amount of applications we’re getting,” from performers. And the festival’s new direction has both Maguire and Hastings filled with anticipation. “We’re excited for the changes,” Hastings said. “Dan wants to improve the corridor,” between Vern Burton and downtown, “with more stuff to do and things to look at . . . We’re looking to see how the community will greet that.”

Still, 40 acts is fewer than the usual 60 to 70, the new director said, adding that this is also part of the new face of the festival. Maguire is looking to bring higher-caliber performers to town, and they cost more. His budget is only about $30,000, and it’s tough, he said, to construct a festival with that. Adding to the stress is the waiting — waiting for performers to sign contracts. Some won’t do so until they have other dates lined up in the area.

Wanted: A few good Jefferson heroes Nominations sought for Heart of Service Award Peninsula Daily News
How to nominate
Now is the time to nominate your local hero. We are looking for people who make a difference in Jefferson County — individuals who have made our communities a better place. The three Rotary Clubs in Jefferson County and Peninsula Daily News invite nominations for the 2011 Jefferson County Heart of Service Award. The Heart of Service was created to recognize the dedication, sacrifice and accomplishments of local people who do extraordinary things for their neighbors, their community or the environment. The award — now in its sixth year — is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Port Townsend (noon club), Port Townsend Sunrise Rotary Club, the East Jefferson Rotary Club and the PDN. “This award gives us the opportunity to highlight the good works of ordinary people in Jefferson County who unselfishly give their time and energy to help others,” said John Brewer, PDN editor and publisher. “These are truly local heroes, working to make community life stronger, tighter, happier, richer.” Such individuals clean up waterways, serve as literacy tutors, raise money for disabled people, protect animals, organize food programs for the hungry and aid crime victims and their families.
n Nominations should be made using the accompanying coupon and must be returned to the Peninsula Daily News, 1939 E. Sims Way, Port Townsend, WA 98368, by no later than 5 p.m. Monday, March 21. n A letter describing the merits and accomplishments of the person being nominated should be submitted with the coupon.

Recipients of the Heart of Service Award in the past are not eligible for a 2011 award. But those previously nominated, but not selected, for a Heart of Service Award are eligible for renomination. A panel of judges will review the nominations and select one to six persons to receive a Heart of Service

Clallam barns reminders of farming past By Jeff Chew

DUNGENESS — With frames, rafters and planks of well-aged old-growth timber, many iconic barns of the Sequim-Dungeness Valley’s past today gloriously display a majestic air of rusticity beneath the Olympic Mountain skyline.

Many are 80 to more than 100 years old and carry the names of pioneers families: Chambers, Cline, Clark, Pettett, Spath, Haller, Dickinson, Balch/Fasola, Brown/Hopf/Keys, Spoelstra, Robb. A number of barns have fallen to the developer’s bulldozer for residential or commercial subdivisions. Only grainy black-andwhite photos remain.

Once a part of the Wayside Farm, today the Chambers barn is home to Olympic Cellars winery on U.S. Highway 101 near O’Brien Road and Old Olympic Highway. Others sit not far from prominent East Clallam County roads surrounded by wheat fields, such as the William Dick barn built in 1916.

The Willis Chambers barn built in 1890 is said to be the oldest barn still standing in Clallam County. Today, it houses Olympic Cellars winery on U.S. Highway 101 east of O’Brien Road. Highway 101 eastbound exit to South Sequim Avenue. The barn, owned by the Fasola family, was built in 1908 by Augustus William “Gus” Balch. The Hyer barn, built between 1917 and 1925 with the farmyard complex, is less visible on Grant Road on a hillside north of 101, west of River Road.
Dairy farming Barns with strong profiles, high steep-pitched roofs peaking at 50 feet and covering10,000 square feet or more, are reminders that dairy farming once dominated the Dungeness Valley’s economy. “Every one of these barns, if they could talk
could really tell some stories, ” said Bob Clark, born and raised as a farm boy on his family’s Dungeness farm on Clark Road. “Barns are a feature unto themselves,” Clark said, recalling the days when he helped milk the family’s Jersey herd by hand before milking machines were invented. Clark’s sharp-as-a-tack memories keep local historians honest and helped him become the first Sequim-Dungeness Valley Museum board president. Clark and artist-historian Cathrine “Cat” Bennett, who in 1994 moved here from Los Angeles to live in the historic Matriotti house that once had a dairy barn of its own, spoke to more than 80 attending the

One cow for every two “Which was one cow for every two people in the county,” she said. Bennett said history shows that East Clallam County lost more than 7,400 acres of farmland to development in the 1980s and 1990s. The winter of 1996-1997 was known as a “barn killer,” she said, because of heavy snows followed by heavy rains that weighted down the snow. Many rotting, weakened old barns collapsed under the pressure. Clark remembers at age 5 joining his family and other Dungeness-area farmers at the then-new barn erected by Joshua Elliott Cline, for whom Dungeness Bay’s Cline Spit is named.

Tied to land Seeing old barns within eyeshot of her home and realizing how they are tied to the land, Bennett said she decided to preserve them in photos, many of which she photographed and documented on her website, www.dungeness barns.com, between 2005 and 2010. “I wanted to capture the
built,” Clark remembered Surprising some, Clark said most barns were built by one or two people — either by the farmer or a contractor — and barn-raisings did not exist. Cylindrical feed silos above ground were not the norm, although a few remain scattered around the valley, some outliving their adjoining barns. Most farmers dug pit silos with open ends to drain the hay and chopped green feed stored for winter cattle feeding. The Clark family’s barn is 48 feet tall and was built for about $2,300 in 1922. It was the third barn on the Clark farm, he said. The barns were built for dairy cows and held up to 450 tons of loose hay, and the larger ones held from 35 to 40 cows. Many barns burned because loose hay would sometimes spontaneously combust, Clark said, with the wind loft created by the intense fires lifting the roofs up 100 feet. “In the early ’30s, milk went to all the local creameries,” he said, adding that the milk was used as pig feed. Urging people to slow down and appreciate “these old beauties” of the valley’s past, Bennett said, “It wasn’t until I studied them that I realized how tied to the land they are.”
“When they built that barn, they had a barn dance on the shiplap timber loft,” Clark remembered. “Everybody in the community was there. There must have been 250 people in that loft.” The barn dance included ________ an orchestra at one end of the loft, he said.

But the more I read “Western” parents defending their parenting methods and tearing into Chua’s with an anger usually reserved for lead-paint-filled toys made in, well, China, the more disturbed I got by them, too. Since when does everyone — Chinese, Western or otherwise — have to espouse or follow a parenting philosophy? Can’t you just be kind and encouraging with your kid, discipline him when required and heat up the chicken nuggets at the appropriate time? OK, being a parent requires more than that, particularly if your child vomits a lot. And I guess now I may be guilty, too, of wading into the Important Thoughts on Parenting waters. But at least my thoughts are: STOP THINKING ABOUT IT. From the moment our children are born, we’re expected to have several parenting guides
on our night tables, with similar websites bookmarked. And other than these books’ unfortunate habit of making you feel that your kid is the last one in his age group to roll over (as if rolling over is a skill that will ever come in handy for him at home, in the workplace, etc.), these guides are probably a good thing. Most of us are so far removed from our instinctual animal selves that we don’t feel comfortable burping our baby without getting confirmation from either a licensed doctor or some mom who burped her kid in 2003 and felt the need to share it on a comment board. But once you’re confident that you’re capable of keeping safe a tiny human being who requires only food, love and, currently, a Nintendo DS, it’s best to put down the reading material, turn off the “Will this make my child happy and/or successful?”
question-asking part of your brain and just . . . be the best parent you can be. As Kevin Costner tells Tim Robbins in “Bull Durham”: “You just got lesson number one: Don’t think. It can only hurt the ball club.” Your family is your ball club. (Unless you’re also on a real ball club, at which point the analogy falls apart.) One of the main questions that Chua’s book and some subsequent rebuttals raised was what parenting style produces “better” adults — you know, the kind of people who are happy and high-achieving and, um, don’t write books insulting millions of other people’s parenting styles, etc. The answer should be: Who cares? While everyone knows there are no guarantees when it comes to raising children, chances are that if you’re a decent, hardwork-
ing, only slightly overweight person, your kid will someday be one, too. That goes for Western parents and Chua’s version of Chinese ones, too. So, unless the last thing you want is for your child to be like you, go grab a moderately healthy snack from the pantry, cuddle up with your kid — and let Shaggy and Scooby help you impart some solid life lessons. And then afterward, ground him for getting crumbs on the couch. Mark Bazer is a humorist who hosts “The Interview Show,” a Chicago-based talk show available at www.huffingtonpost.com.

“I like to spend time with my two grandkids. I read to them, or we play with a train set, and before bedtime, it’s story time.”
“Stay home and keep warm and read or watch TV. I stay up till 10. Summer, though, I’m out till the sun goes down. I like it quiet, and yes, I like the clouds. No place I’d rather be.”
“Relax, and talk to my husband about the day. I also like to hold my grandchild. On Wednesday and Saturday nights, I go to workshop sessions. I go to bed early, and it’s up at 4 a.m.”
“I listen to music online, read or write poetry. I write poetry about fantasy or daily life. I am self-published, too. We also have a movie night with a family-sized pizza.”
“Pretty much stay at home and watch movies. It’s about the only thing to do. We will even come into PA and go to the theater, as Forks doesn’t have one. I also do my homework.”
“Curl up with a good movie and some popcorn. Or go out and take in a movie. Mostly, though, spend time on the computer or do family recreation at home.”
“Occasionally, I like to go for walks in the dark for a mile or so. I work at night. Also, I like to get up in a Snuggie and watch TV till I fall asleep. I can’t wait for summer, though.”
“I read every night, but I also have a workshop, and I do a lot of woodworking projects. I build bird houses and get them ready for springtime.”

to exploitation of biofuel, you’d think they haven’t yet got the picture. The weak-minded state Department of Ecology addresses the question of emissions, while the state Department of Commerce looks at jobs produced, and the state Department of Natural Resources remains disconcertedly aloof. Acting independently, they don’t see the overall picture — and hence, don’t address the complexities inherent in it. Though I question the efficacy of DOE’s actions in the matter at hand, I choose to focus herein on our voracious appetite for wood products which, combined with an ever-growing need for energy, will deliver the coup de grace to an ecological setting indisputably crucial to life on our planet. Excavators and chipping machines are about to convert leftovers from logging operations into energy. In the process, much of our forest floor, a magical ecological manufactory, will be stricken beyond repair. The manufactory is indisputably the richest in life and the greatest in mass. Among other things, forests help to regulate

planetary temperature. As sequesters of carbon, forests help to mitigate global warming. Forests are a backstage operative in the hydrologic cycle. Forests literally hold the earth together. State and county officials shouldn’t for a moment think that a forest cut and otherwise denuded can perform almost or nearly as well as one largely untouched. The more the touching, the more dire the consequences to man and nature. We’ve touched and retouched too much forest over the years. Now’s the time to call a halt. Todd Wexman, Port Townsend
Rock quarry The rock business is unique. The product is sold by the ton, is transported by endless belt, barge, or 34-35-ton truck-trailers. Thus, transportation costs make distance important to paving companies and other users of large quantities. Rocks have many degrees of strength, but all are crushed down to the
size required by their application. Paving companies mix crushed rock with liquid asphalt to produce asphalt concrete for highways to accommodate the North Olympic Peninsula’s fastgrowing population. Excerpts from Clallam County Code 27-10 are written on the back of every real estate tax statement. It was written to prioritize mining the natural mineral wealth in Washington state and to educate the public and real estate dealers to be beware of that priority. The code was written in accordance with the Growth Management Act People who live too close to the proposed Little River rock quarry are fearful of loud noises as undesirable as at a major airport except that the rocks were there first. The county ignored the existing rocks and permitted the surrounding property to be divided into 5-acre parcels regardless of the future likelihood of noise. Robert Maple Norman, Sequim Turn

Increase oil drilling Now that oil exploration has been reopened in the Gulf of Mexico, we need to catch up with the foreign oil companies that were not forced to stop their operations in the Gulf around Cuba, like the U.S. companies were. As gas prices rise, the call to get off foreign oil becomes more important. We need to open up our exploration and drilling operations even more to get off the foreign oil. If gas prices keep rising, our economy will take a nosedive. “Green” cars are years away from being a major factor in our use of gas. Yes, it is an answer, but those type of cars are expensive, and the majority of people will not pay the price to own one of those cars, no matter how much gas will cost. The miles-per-gallon on our own gas cars has gone up in the last few years, but we still depend on foreign oil. Regulations on our oil exploration are killing us. Thom VanGesen, Port Angeles
Conserve gasoline We read with interest the responses to the Sunday, Jan. 16 “Speaking Out” question about rising gasoline prices [“How worried are you about increasing gas prices?”] and a Jan. 14-15 “Peninsula Poll” about what price gasoline would peak at in 2011. Most respondents worried that gasoline price increases were inevitable, and the poll indicated that most thought the price of a gallon of gasoline would peak out higher in 2011
than it did in 2010. We believe in the conventional wisdom (CW) that as consumer demand for gasoline drops, prices at the pump also drop, as happened in the latter part of our recent recession. The CW also reminds us that as demand for gasoline rises, as appears to be happening now, prices at the pump go up (notwithstanding there are seasonal price variations and catastrophic events that also affect prices at the pump). What CW says to us is that one way we as consumers can impact or moderate gasoline price increases at the pump is to conserve. Therefore, consider driving less, carpooling and driving efficiently by combining trips and errands to a given locale, as all help save fuel. Also, when you drive on the highway, consider driving slower, at or near the speed limit, as this saves fuel (the instantaneous miles-per-gallon meter on our car shows that we get 10 percent to 15 percent better highway mileage when driving 55-60 mph). Finally, if you are considering vehicle replacement or a new vehicle purchase, look closely at fuel-efficient hybrid or allelectric vehicles as viable options. Bob and Ann Sextro, Sequim

Continued from A10 Minor tweaks could easily extend that date well into the future. (The last two issues of AARP The Magazine outlined the specifics.) Never letting reality get in the way of their goals, however, Republicans continue to claim that Social Security is a big part of our deficit problem while trumpeting the advantages of privatizing it (after all, Wall Street takes such good care of our money). So, publicly, the plan is to help solve the financial crisis by “fixing” a program that isn’t contributing to the crisis in the first place. Privately, Republicans know that, backed now by tea party demands for financial reform, this is their best chance for gutting a program they have hated since the 1930s. Give them credit for their patience. After Social Security come public-sector unions, whose members “earn too much” and have “extravagant” benefits (see the Cal Thomas column, Thursday, Jan. 20, “Budget Contrasts In Black And White”). That includes all those rich teachers, firemen, policemen, garbage collectors and office clerks, whose outlandish lifestyles we simply cannot support. The struggle to get our country out of the ditch and back on the road is finally bearing some fruit, but Republicans seem determined to put this national car in reverse and drive us right back into the arms of the robber barons. There, just like in the fairy tales of old, we can live happily ever after on the crumbs that fall from the table. Geri Zanon, Port Angeles
Twin towers The defining event of our times has to be the image, indelibly etched in the minds of tens of millions of Americans, of the two airliners, filled with passengers, crashing into the twin towers of the World Trade Center on 9/11/01. Although, like most people, I accepted the Bush administration’s claim that Osama was the evil perpetrator, I was also aware that in high positions within the Bush administration were members of PNAC (Project for the New American Century). This is a committee within the right-wing American Enterprise Institute whose leaders, Cheney, Rumsfeld Wolfowitz, Rice, etc., dreamed of seizing control of the oil riches of the Middle East through military action. They made the 9/11 attack a dream come true, since they desperately needed a new Pearl Harbor to arouse war fever. There were 1,368 professional architects physicists and structural and mechanical engineers who signed a statement pointing out the physical impossibility of WTC Buildings 1, 2 (the towers) and No. 7, (a huge, 47-story office complex) being brought down by fire, as claimed in the final report of the official 9/11 Commission. They demanded the convening of a new, unbiased, fully funded commission with sweeping powers of subpoena investigation and administering the oath to tell the truth. This is not a right, left, conservative, liberal, religious or atheist issue. Rather, the question is: Are the American people any longer capable of expressing outrage and calling their rulers to account? Or has our fair country truly become the “land of the serfs and the home of the wimps”? If so, in the words of Benjamin Franklin: “We deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Wayne Ostlund, Port Angeles
Twin towers Regarding the Jan. 1 letter, “How they fell,” the retired structural engineer made some very valid points: “physics of destruction,” “controlled demolition,” a couple of Newton’s theories, etc.

Just under 9 percent of home-school fathers and 1.3 percent of mothers hold doctorate degrees, 37.6 percent of fathers and 47.2 percent of mothers hold master’s degrees, 6.9 percent of fathers and 9.7 percent of mothers have associate degrees, and 16.4 percent of fathers and 21.8 percent of mothers attended some college, according the website. Twenty-four percent of home-school parents have teaching credentials. A study, Strengths of Their Own, shows the average cost per home-school student is $546, while Port Angeles’ per pupil expense is $9,189. “The home-school children in this study scored in the 85th percentile, while public school students averaged in the 50th percentile on nationally standardized achievement tests.” In another study, studying 20,760 home-schooled students, Dr. Lawrence Rudner “found that eighth grade students whose parents spend $199 or less on their education score, on average, in the 80th percentile. Spending over $600 raises scores slightly, to the 83rd percentile.” From 1971 to 2004, national per student spending increased from $4,060 to $9,266. The National Assessment of Student Educational Progress demonstrates that reading scores have not improved. Increased spending does not improve education.

much they enjoyed and were influenced by music and sports programs. It is well known that professional people considering our community are influenced in that decision by the quality of our schools and how committed we are to them. The choice of supporting or not supporting the upcoming maintenance and operations levy seems a “no-brainer.” Why would we knowingly risk the quality of education that is being provided? Why would we risk enlarging class sizes or reducing the availability of music or sports to our students? Not supporting the upcoming levy would result in outcomes I’m not willing to impose on our youth. I urge you to support our children and cast a vote for them. Merry Van Deusen, Port Angeles
create the need for increasing maintenance and operation levies. Politicians know if they reduce school funding, it is likely that local citizens will pick up the budget shortfalls.

Punish the politicians, not our children, and a good time to start would be during the next election cycle. Carol Johnson, Port Angeles

Clallam courthouse upgrades on schedule By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — The iconic bell tower at the Clallam County Courthouse will serenade central Port Angeles with its familiar chimes within a week or two, county facilities officials said. Improvements to the clock and bell tower are part of a $324,500 upgrade to the interior and exterior of the 97-year-old building on Lincoln Street. “You can look, or listen, for the bell to again be ringing every half hour by the first week of February if all goes well,” said Joel Winborn, Clallam County Parks, Fair and Facilities manager. The ongoing project is the third and final phase of an overhaul to the historic west wing that will meet the community’s needs for 20 years, Winborn said. Work is scheduled to be finished by Feb. 14. “We are generally on schedule,” Winborn said. “There have been a few unforeseen things that have come up that we have had to address but nothing that delayed us to any appreciable degree.” County commissioners awarded the contract to Mukilteo-based Advanced Construction Inc., last Sep-
tember. Advanced Construction submitted the lowest of four bids received by the county. Half of the project is being funded by a 50-50 matching grant from the state Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation. Clallam County budgeted its share of the cost in the 2010 capital projects fund. Crews started working on the exterior of the courthouse in early October when the weather was still favorable. Winborn said the exterior work includes: ■ Cleaning, sealing and painting the building. ■ Adding bird deterrent to the building parapets and bell tower roof. ■ Replacing the failing concrete entry steps and railing. ■ Repairing rot and deteriorated wood and metal damage to the bell tower. ■ Re-pointing bricks. ■ Repairing and repainting the clock. ■ Replacing the roofing, hatch and ladder at the bell tower. Highlights of the interior work include: ■ Removing and replacing all carpet on the main level. ■ Refinishing the ter-
ing for energy efficiency. ■ Painting all of the offices. The county received a right-of-way permit with the city of Port Angeles to close the sidewalk directly in front of the courthouse while the entry stairs are being replaced. The closure was necessary to keep pedestrians away from heavy equipment, Winborn said. “This will likely will take another one to two weeks, weather permitting,” he added. Four county departments on the main level of the historic courthouse were temporarily relocated during construction: Washington State University Extension, the law library, environmental health and the Parks, Fair and Facilities Division. WSU Extension and the law library were moved to the former health department in the basement of the main courthouse when construction began. They have since moved Keith Thorpe/Peninsula Daily News back to their original quarTom McAndrew of Franson Trucking & ters.

may be moving back the last week of January.” Built in 1914, the historic courthouse was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1987. The larger east side and connecting jail were built in 1979. Improvements to the historic courthouse began in 1999, when the second and third floors of the building were remodeled. “That work included the historic courtroom upgrades, repairing and cleaning of the scagliola, extensive exterior brick work, extensive bell tower work and other associated repairs and improvements,” Winborn said. Scagliola is also known as “faux marble” or “poor man’s marble,” Winborn said. “In 2009, the old fuelburning boiler was replaced with an energy-efficient electric steam boiler,” Winborn said. “That work was used as part of our match for this project. “And now, this project completes the third and final phase of our improvement plan and should complete all of our major needs for the next 20 years.

Woman stabs Beaver man with two-pronged, steak-carving fork By Tom Callis
Peninsula Daily News
BEAVER — Clallam County sheriff’s deputies arrested a 44-year-old woman Saturday alleged to have stabbed a man that afternoon after he refused to move out of the house they lived in. Sgt. Brian King said Dana Rafmussen stabbed Corey Wine, 40, in the lower back with a two-pronged
steak-carving fork while he was cooking at about 1:20 p.m. Wine was treated at and released from Forks Community Hospital, he said. The fork left two puncture wounds, but they were minor injuries, King said. “The stabbing followed them arguing much of the day,” he said. “She wanted him to leave,” King added. “He was refusing to leave.”
Wine and Rafmussen were living together in a travel trailer at 202531 U.S. Highway 101, King said. Rafmussen, King said, was “heavily intoxicated” but cooperative when deputies arrived. She was booked into Clallam County jail on investigation of seconddegree assault, domestic violence. A neighbor reported the stabbing after Wine came

Sports Dawgs deny Devils SCOREBOARD Page B2
Girls are all right UW survives upset in area bid, outscores ASU hoops The Associated Press
AFTER TWO MONTHS of high school basketball, it’s pretty clear who the juggernauts are on the North Olympic Peninsula. As their undefeated league Matt records indicate, Schubert the Neah Bay (3-0 in league, 14-0 overall) and Port Angeles (110, 12-3) girls are easily the class of the area. At this point, the question isn’t whether one will get knocked off by one of their remaining league opponents. (I think we can safely say that isn’t going to happen, since it hasn’t the past two years for either team.) Instead, the bigger debate is whether either one can make it to the state tournament under the new eight-team format. Given that Neah Bay hasn’t won a Round of 16 state tournament game since 1981 and Port Angeles is 0-7 in postseason games since 2008, this is hardly a gimme. Yes, Port Angeles is currently ranked No. 3 in Class 2A, but as senior shooting guard Jessica Madison said, “That’s just a number.” “We still have to come out and prove ourselves in the playoffs.” The Roughriders have lost each of their toughest games — nonleague tilts with bigger schools South Kitsap (4A), Mount Tahoma (4A) and Timberline (3A) — thus far. Yet Port Townsend head coach Randy Maag, for one, is convinced this year’s Riders are better than those in the past. “They are more balanced,” said Maag, who’s Redskins lost to Port Angeles 63-42 on Friday night. “Jessica is obviously a great player, but you throw that freshman [Krista] Johnson in there and she can shoot the ball. You got [Kiah] Jones. “There’s just no weakness. Defensively, that team is very good.” Neah Bay is just as loaded at the 1B level. Curiously, however, the Red Devils still aren’t ranked despite beating all but one opponent (Lummi) by double digits in each of its 14 wins. “Our main goal is getting to state and placing at state,” said Red Devils coach Lisa Halttunen last week. “As long as we keep that in mind and we’re focused on that when we’re playing these games that will get us there,” the team shouldn’t lose its edge. In order to reach state, teams will have to survive a four-team regional that allows two schools to move on. To view the regional pairings, visit http://wiaa.com.
SEATTLE — Matthew Bryan-Amaning knew how many points he had and felt as though Washington should be running away from Arizona State in the closing minutes, only to look up and realize the Sun Devils were threatening to ruin his career day. Thanks to Also . . . a closing ■ Cougs punch from just miss B r y a n upset over Amaning and Arizona/B4 I s a i a h Thomas, the No. 20 Huskies are off to their best conference start in nearly a quarter-century. “When it happens like that, you have to realize time and situation,” Bryan-Amaning said. “Then we were able to just pull away at the end.” Bryan-Amaning carried the Huskies with a career-high 30 points, Thomas slowed Arizona State leading scorer Ty Abbott in the second half and Washington pulled away late for an 88-75 victory Saturday. Thomas still did his part offensively, finishing with 19 points, eight assists and six rebounds, as Washington (154) improved to 7-1 in Pac-10 play, it’s best start since the 1986-87 season.
Thomas knifed for a pair of driving layups in the last 4 minutes and closed his day with a flailing three-point play in the final minute as the Huskies hung the most points ever allowed by a Herb Sendek team in his five seasons at Arizona State. While this wasn’t the blowout most have expected from Washington at home, the Huskies could benefit from more wins like this in which they’re forced to make plays late. Bryan-Amaning and Thomas combined for eight straight points in the final few minutes, then watched Scott Suggs hit a big 3-pointer off an assist from Thomas to push the Huskies’ lead to eight with 1:08 left. Thomas wasn’t able to continue his impressive run after posting consecutive games with at least 20 points and 10 assists as he did in the Huskies’ previous two wins over California at Arizona. According to STATS LLC, Thomas was the first player in Division I since Northeastern’s Jose Juan Barea in February 2006 to post back-toback games with at least 20 points and 10 assists. Turn

1,000-point club Drexler Doherty entered elite territory when he crossed the 1,000point threshold earlier this month. The Neah Bay shooting guard became just the seventh Red Devil since 1976 to break through that barrier, joining the likes of Bob Moss, Stan Claplanhoo, Shannon Wright, Doherty Scott Moss, Nathan Tyler and Tim Greene. Just to provide some perspective on how difficult it is to reach 1,000 points, consider this: A player could average 12.0 points per game for four straight years and still finish 40 points short (assuming they played 20 games a season). Obviously, that’s asking a lot. Turn

Riders turn it on PA girls remain unbeaten in league with 63-42 win By Matt Schubert
Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles girls basketball team can flip the switch in a hurry. And as the Port Townsend Redskins learned once again in Friday night’s Olympic League matchup, it can be devastating. Jessica Madison scored 10 of her game-high 24 points during a 27-10 Roughrider second quarter to vault Port Angeles to its 32nd straight league win, 63-42.
Port Angeles (11-0 in league, 12-3 overall) has knocked off Port Townsend (6-6, 8-8) four times during that stretch, including a season sweep this winter. “The PA girls are kind of like sharks,” Port Townsend coach Randy Maag said. “When you make a mistake, they not only make you pay for that mistake, but they immediately attack. One mistake leads to another. “[The deficit] is 6, 9, 10 points, you’re within reason, and then you blink and it’s there.”

That’s exactly what happened in the second quarter Friday night. The Riders’ physical full court defense forced the Redskins to turn the ball over eight times in the frame’s opening four minutes.

EVERETT — The gym might have been empty, but that didn’t keep the Peninsula College men’s basketball team from putting on a show Saturday night. The Pirates harassed Everett Community College all game long in the Trojans’ cavernous new gymnasium, rolling to a 90-62 win in NWAACC North Division play. DeShaun Freeman had a double-double with 20 points and 12 rebounds, as 11 of 12 Pirates in uniform scored in a game they led from start to finish. The win keeps Peninsula (6-1 in North, 11-5 overall) atop the North Division standings with Shoreline (3-2, 10-5) set to visit Wednesday night. “Our guys really rose to the occasion tonight,” Pirates coach Lance Von Vogt said. “Everett was playing in its brand new gymnasium. “There wasn’t too many fans there, and you had to bring their own energy. Our guys did that.” The Pirates hit 57 percent of their shots from the field in the first half, including 44 percent from 3-point range, to race out to a 41-26 lead that was never challenged. Everett shot just 25 percent from the field (19 of 74) on the game, with its leading scorer netting just 14 points. Peninsula had four different players with three assists, finishing with 19 as a team and just 12 turnovers. Sophomore guard Thad Vinson added 19 points, while Sammeon Waller had 12 points and Trevant Musgrow 11. “We came out and played with good energy and we were very efficient in the first half on offense and on defense,” Von Vogt said. “It was a really good team performance.” Peninsula 90, Everett 62 Peninsula Everett

Riders outlast Redskins PA surges past PT in second half Peninsula Daily News
PORT TOWNSEND — The Port Angeles boys basketball team turned on the defense in the second half to top Port Townsend 48-36 in Olympic League action Friday night. The Roughriders held the Redskins to 12 points in the second half to win a game that was tied 24-24 at halftime. The victory, combined with a Sequim loss, pulled Port Angeles (8-3 in league, 10-5 overall) into a tie for second place in league with Bremerton. Since the Knights are in Class 3A and the Riders in 2A, it essentially means Port Angeles is currently lined up for the Olympic’s No. 2 subdistrict spot. “We got off to a slow start,” Port Angeles coach Wes Armstrong said. “But I was proud of the way we battled back.” Hayden McCartney led the Riders with 13 points, six rebounds and four steals. Ian Ward added 10 points of his own and six rebounds to help Port Angeles finish on top. The loss drops Port Townsend (3-9, 5-11) back into eighth place in league and one spot out of 1A postseason play. Port Angeles will next host Bremerton on Tuesday starting at 7 p.m. in a battle for second place. Port Townsend heads to first-place Kingston on the same night.

Bremerton 59, Sequim 49 BREMERTON — The Knights (7-3, 11-4) ran their win streak to eight games by topping the Wolves (8-4, 12-5) Friday night in a key Olympic League game. Sequim’s first bucket didn’t come until halfway through the opening quarter, part of a 14-point first half that all but buried the Wolves. “We relied too much on the long shot and we didn’t attack their zone like we should,” Sequim coach Greg Glasser said. “You can’t do that against those guys.” Jayson Brocklesby led the Wolves with 15 points, but it was sophomore Andrew Shadle who was the game’s leading scorer with a career high 21 points.

28). The Riders shot 35.6 percent from the field on the game. “I thought we played OK at times. I know we can do better,” said Madison, who crossed the 1,600-point threshold for her career Friday night. “I think when we know the teams are going to be more competitive, we play better. Sometimes we play down to other teams’ levels.” Added Knowles, “To try to get them motivated to play four quarters when you go in at halftime and you’re up 42-17, it’s tough. “But Port Townsend, I’ll give them credit. They came out and played hard.”
Port Townsend actually outscored the Riders 25-21 during the final two quarters. Forward Kerri Evalt scored 13 of her team-high 17 points during that time. The 6-foot senior also added six rebounds. The Redskins hit 8 of 21 shots in the second half, while turning the ball over just 13 times compared to 20 giveaways in the first half. “The whole plan coming in was to try and make this a learning experience,” Maag said. “In districts you’re going to have teams that play man-to-man defense like that.
After Friday night’s 24-point showing, the Rider senior is just 81 points away Madison from breaking her older brother James’ school record of 1,702 points. Given that Jessica is averaging 20.8 ppg this season, she could surpass
her brother by the end of the regular season. What game would that be? Senior Night at home against Sequim.

Title time for four teams Coaches facing off in NFC tilt
Stalwart, upstart in AFC clash
The Associated Press
The Associated Press
LAKE FOREST, Ill. — The Green Bay Packers were a mess when they hired Dom Capers as their defensive coordinator two years ago, and the Chicago Bears had issues on offense when they turned to Mike Martz after last season. Now look at them. The Packers and Bears meet in the NFC championship game today, and the outcome just Capers might hinge on the chess match between two veteran coordinators. “Mike has certainly been doing this for a lot of years, and he has a lot of little intricacies that are true to his system . . . that you never know when that’s going to come out,” Capers said. Martz called Capers “a terrific teacher” whose teams have always been “well schooled.” And Green Bay’s defense sure earned high grades this year, helping the Packers get to the conference championship despite a long list of injuries. The Bears, meanwhile, looked as if they were coming off the tracks before making some key adjustments on offense and turning around their season. Now, these teams are facing off for the 182nd time and the stakes have never been higher. Only once before have they played in the postseason, and that was a week after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, when Chicago beat Green Bay at Wrigley Field on the way to a title. Now, franchises with a combined 21 championships and 47 Hall of Famers are set to go at it for a spot in the Super Bowl. It’s a chance for young quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers and Jay Cutler to cement themselves among the best at their position, with two of the league’s stingiest defenses staring at them. Then, there are the coordinators. Statistically, it looks like a mismatch. Capers is leading the fifth-ranked defense, while Martz’s offense ranked 30th, but the improvements the Bears made on that side of the ball during the season helped lift them to the NFC North title and a first-round playoff bye.

Cougs can’t top Wildcats Thompson’s last-second shot short in 65-63 defeat The Associated Press
PULLMAN — Derrick Williams scored 17 points and grabbed a career-high 19 rebounds as Arizona edged Washington State 65-63 on Saturday night. Lamont Jones added 11 points for Arizona (16-4,
5-2), which used a big rebounding advantage to overcome poor shooting and moved into a tie for second place in the Pac-10. DeAngelo Casto scored 17 points for Washington State (14-6, 4-4). Klay Thompson, the Pac-10’s leading scorer, was held to
nine points — 13 below his average. He missed a 12-footer at the buzzer that would have sent the game to overtime. Arizona shot just 36 percent, yet made 11 of 18 3-pointers, and had 39 rebounds to Washington State’s 30. Williams posted his seventh double-double of the season. Thompson struggled through a 4-for-16 shooting performance.

Dawgs: Hold off Devils for win working and be resilient. We have high character guys who are going to show up ready for battle,” Sendek said. “We have a lot of guys who are learning how to compete in tough games, but it is hard to compete when you still have guys that look like deer in the headlights.” While Abbott cooled off in the second half, BryanAmaning continued to carry the Huskies offense. He slammed a fast-break lob from Thomas and hit his first three shots. When he did miss, Darnell Gant’s tip gave Washington an eightpoint lead with 11 minutes left, its largest of the game. But Washington couldn’t shake the Sun Devils.
Lockett’s free throws on consecutive possessions got Arizona State within 62-60 with 7:35 left and a few moments later, Rihards Kuksiks’ 3-pointer pulled the Sun Devils even at 63-all. C.J. Wilcox answered with a 3 and Venoy Overton’s run-out basket put the Huskies up five, only to see Abbott hit a 3 from the corner and Lockett score on a baseline reverse to keep Arizona State within 70-68. Suggs’ 3 served as the final capper, as BryanAmaning made 11 of 16 shots and all eight free throws. “They kind of had us hesitating, but once we settled down I think we were just able to do a great job,” BryanAmaning said.
“We have one standard,” coach Mike Tomlin said. “That standard is winning.” Hines Ward has lived up to that standard for 13 seasons, easily the most as a Steeler on the current roster. He has been one of the franchise’s greatest postseason performers and was MVP of the 2006 Super Bowl against the Seattle Seahawks. He understands fully what has bred success in Pittsburgh, and will continue to do so after he is long gone. “People try to compare this team to the Super Bowl teams we played on, but every team is different,” Ward said. “We’ve got a lot of young guys and a lot of battle-tested guys who have been there. “What this team has that impresses me is the resiliency. To do it the way we have done it, not having Ben [Roethlisberger] for four games [while he was suspended], missing Troy [Polamalu] for two or three games, our offensive line getting hurt. It’s been remarkable to see the guys fill in.” It’s the Steelers way. “It starts up top,” Ward said of ownership, the front office and coaching staff. “The 53-man roster we pick in training camp, we always say it will come down to the guys we took back then. And it does.” The Jets aren’t likely to be swayed by the Steelers’ resume of success. They weren’t intimidated by facing the Colts in Indy or the Patriots in Foxborough — not even with the fresh memory of being pummeled 45-3 at Gillette Stadium five weeks earlier. If anything, the Jets should be brimming with
confidence that they can match up well with Pittsburgh, get key contributions from their playmakers, and ride off with what truly would be their biggest victory since Joe Namath came through on his guarantee. “We’ve talked about it quite a bit,” said veteran running back LaDainian Tomlinson, who was with San Diego for the 2007 AFC title game but barely played because of a left knee injury as the Chargers lost to the undefeated Patriots. Tomlinson joined the Jets this season. “I think everybody understands where we are, and obviously it helps with those guys getting here last year and knowing that this doesn’t happen often and how special it is,” Tomlinson said. “You never know when you’re going to get the next opportunity and they can look at guys like myself and Jason Taylor, even Shaun Ellis, to see that.” Asked what it would mean to walk off the field today knowing he’s going to the Super Bowl — something so many Steelers are familiar with — the usually descriptive Tomlinson struggled. “I don’t know if I can put into words, but I can definitely imagine the feeling,” he said. “Every year, you see a team that walks off that field in the AFC championship game going to the Super Bowl and you see the excitement on guys’ faces, the atmosphere, and just how proud guys are. “I really can’t put it into words, I just know I have the vision of what it may feel like.” In this strange season, LT and the Jets might get to experience it.

SAN FRANCISCO — Cody Doolin converted a three-point play with 4.1 seconds remaining in overtime, and San Francisco upset Gonzaga 96-91 on Saturday in a game marred by physical play.

Historical Treasures When the dams go down, what happens to the parts?

Several groups say they’d like to have them for historical exhibits

PORT ANGELES — What will happen to the fixtures and equipment from the 97-year-old Elwha Dam powerhouse once it is demolished — including the control panel, ancient dials and giant tools? Some groups are already salivating at the opportunity. So far, the Clallam County Historical Society, city of Port Angeles, Arthur D. Feiro Marine Life Center in Port Angeles and Olympic National Park have requested various parts of the power plant, park spokeswoman Barb Maynes said. She said park staff will review the requests and decide the parts’ fate. Workers will start dismantling the Elwha Dam, which is five miles from the Strait of Juan de Fuca, in September. The 83-year-old Glines Canyon Dam demolition, eight miles farther upriver, will begin before the lower dam is completely down. The Glines Canyon dam also has a powerhouse, which is less extensive than the lower dam, but
artifacts will be salvaged from both. As federal property, the equipment can be loaned long term but can’t be given away or sold, Maynes said. “A lot of equipment in there is very large, and finding a place for it is not as quick and easy as you might think,” she said. What is apparent is that artifacts from the demolition of the 108-foot-tall Elwha Dam won’t all be exhibited in one place. Instead, displays will be spread all over Port Angeles.
Pieces spread around Maynes said that the park is likely to exhibit some pieces at the visitor center at 3002 Mount
Outdoor exhibit The large wheel — which is about waist-high on a person — would be the centerpiece of an outdoor exhibit, probably on City Pier, she said. The exhibit — a joint project with the city of Port Angeles — would “tell the story of how the Elwha dams built the city,” Moriarty said. Port Angeles entrepreneur Thomas Aldwell built the Elwha Dam in 1913 to supply hydroelectric power to Port Angeles, Port Townsend, Poulsbo and the Navy shipyard in Bermerton. Demand led to the construction of the Glines Canyon Dam by Northwest Power & Light Co. in 1927. The outdoor exhibit would be funded by a National Park Service Challenge Cost Share Grant awarded by Olympic National Park, Moriarty said. Half of that grant already has paid for an indoor exhibit at the Feiro center, a hands-on model of the 210-foot Glines Canyon Dam, the upper dam which is 13 miles upriver from the mouth, and Lake Mills.

Exactly where is unknown now. “There is no plan at this point,” Maynes said. “The discussions are still pretty wide open.” The Feiro center at 315 N. Lincoln St. on City Pier has requested a large, red butterfly-valve control, which is the main shutoff valve for the dam, said Deborah Moriarty, administrative and education coordinator.

Groups sue over national park pollution FBI
This combination of pictures provided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation shows the T-shirts contained within a backpack found on a bench in Spokane on Monday.
Shirts found at King parade from nearby Tips pouring in after FBI releases photos By Nicholas K. Geranios
The Associated Press
SPOKANE — The two T-shirts found with a bomb placed along a Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade route in Spokane both came from the same nearby county. The FBI released photos of the shirts found inside a backpack containing the bomb, which was discovered on a bench Monday before the parade started and was defused without incident. One of the shirts was distributed last year at the Relay For Life race in Colville, the seat of Stevens County. The origin of the second shirt — which had the words “Treasure Island
Spring 2009” on the front — wasn’t immediately clear. But after the photos were released, residents called the FBI and media to report the shirt was from a local theater production in 2009 in the town of Chewelah, 50 miles north of Spokane. Colville and Chewelah are both in Stevens County, which borders Spokane County and has about 40,000 residents.
No word on focus The FBI declined to comment on whether it was focusing on the rural county. “We’re not going to comment on specific investigative angles,” said Frank
Harrill, who heads the FBI office in Spokane. “This investigation is and will remain wide-ranging,” Harrill said. “It’s premature to attempt to assume any particular direction. Tips from the public continue to pour in, and the search for the bomber could be lengthy, he said.
Aimed at marchers The bomb was placed on a metal bench with a brick wall behind that would have directed shrapnel toward Main Street, where marchers were expected to pass, investigators said. Three city workers spotted the backpack about an hour before the parade was to start. They looked inside, saw wires and alerted law enforcement. The bomb had a remote detonator and could have caused mass casualties, officials said.
The FBI has said the attempt on the day set aside to honor the slain civil rights leader raised the possibility of a racial motive. Leaders of two local white supremacist groups have denied they were involved.
Supermacists’ denial “The Aryan Nations does not advocate any violence,” said Jerald O’Brien, leader of the group based in nearby Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. He said he has not been contacted by the FBI. Meanwhile, Shaun Winkler of the White Knights of the KKK in northern Idaho said his group did not plant the bomb and that its members prefer distributing propaganda to going to prison. Harrill said the backpack and T-shirts are being analyzed at an FBI lab in Quantico, Va. The FBI has offered a $20,000 reward for information from the public.

Tampering guilt TACOMA — The U.S. Attorney’s Office said a former Camas paramedic has been sentenced to 27 months in prison after he admitted stealing supplies of the narcotic pain medication fentanyl and replacing them with tap water. Bradley Curtis Allen earlier pleaded guilty to product tampering. He was sentenced Friday in federal court in Tacoma. The 60-year-old told Camas police he had been stealing and using the drug for three years. Allen had worked for the Camas Fire Department for 22 years. An investigation last May found that all the department’s fentanyl was missing from its storage areas.

EPA plans to act “In the near future, EPA will issue a number of air rules that are vital to protecting public health and that will complement states’ efforts to reduce regional haze,” said EPA spokeswoman Margot Perez-Sullivan in San Francisco. “Together, these actions will address the harmful emissions that affect our nation’s most pristine areas.” The Interior and Agriculture departments declined to comment specifically on the lawsuit. But the USDA has said it would not decide on whether to certify visibility impairment regarding Navajo Generating Station until the EPA completes its analysis under the regional haze rule. On the Four Corners Power Plant, U.S. Forest Service said its analysis shows that it causes the greatest cumulative impact on visibility of any single source.
Seeks deadline The lawsuit seeks a court order establishing a prompt deadline for the federal agencies to act on the plaintiffs’ petitions. Jeff Holmstead, a former assistant administrator for air at EPA, said he doesn’t doubt that visitors don’t have the crystal-clear views they would like at national parks at wilderness areas at times. Coal-fired power plants are a major source of pollution, but automobiles, carbon from fires, soot, windblown dust and nature also are to blame for hazy air, he said. “I know they [environmentalists] would like to impose more controls, but I don’t think there’s any evidence those plants are creating any visible impact on those national parks,” he said.

They followed with a second petition a month later regarding the Centralia Power Plant in Washington state, saying it was harming air quality at Mount Rainier and Olympic national parks. The third petition contended that the Four Corners Power Plant near Farmington, N.M., has harmed air at 16 national parks and wilderness areas in Arizona, Utah, New Mexico and Colorado. The EPA has proposed pollution controls for the Four Corners plant under the Clean Air Act and was expected to release recommendations for the Navajo Generating Station. The regulation of coal plants on tribal lands falls on the EPA.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency already is addressing visibility impairment under a 1999 regional haze rule that covers air pollutants from sources over a wide geographic area. The environmental groups want the agency to use an earlier rule that can identify impairment from a single or smaller number of sources. Both rules require an analysis of the best technology available to reduce emissions, the EPA said. But the groups contend the latter rule would mean a higher-quality analysis that, with certification, could force the EPA to act under a strict deadline. “There’s less ambiguity under this action on what is acceptable,” said Roger Clark, air and energy director for the Grand Canyon Trust in Flagstaff, one of the plaintiffs. The groups filed the first petition in May 2009, asking that the Interior Department certify that nitrogen oxide and particulate matter from the Navajo Generating Station near Page are impairing visibility at the Grand Canyon.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — An Albuquerque jury has acquitted a Seattle man who refused to show his identification to Transportation Security Administration officers at a New Mexico airport. Phil Mocek was arrested in late 2009 after he wouldn’t show his ID and then used a camera to videotape an altercation with TSA officers at Albuquerque International Sunport. Mocek was facing several charges, including failure to obey an officer and concealing his identity. Jurors found Mocek not guilty on all four counts Friday. The Associated Press
A group of environmentalists has sued the federal government in an effort to force a declaration on the source of air pollution over Olympic National Park and other wilderness areas in the West. The lawsuit, filed Wednesday, contends that emissions from two coalfired power plants on the Navajo Nation and a third in Washington state have obscured views at places like Olympic National Park, Mount Rainier, the Grand Canyon and Mesa Verde. The nine groups have accused the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Interior Department of unreasonably delaying a response to petitions for formal certification of visibility impairment. “If DOI and DOA were to grant plaintiffs’ petitions, large sources of air pollution that are presently causing visibility impairment in many national parks and wilderness areas would more likely be required to reduce their emissions,” the lawsuit said. It was filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C.

Pruning must have purpose, or plant suffers Articles discuss how and why of this strategy After 48 years of pruning — everything from 3,200 cut roses at age 4 to countless orchards, numerous shrubs and even the renown ivy topiary at the David Adler-designed Crab Tree Farms in Lake Bluff, Ill. — I have developed seven distinct purposes for pruning. I will go over them with you today and over the next few Sundays. And although there are seven reasons to prune, many times two, three, even four or more methods can be combined on the same plant for spectacular, farreaching results. But before I list the seven purposes, let’s spend a moment on pruning itself.
What is your goal? The ultimate goal of pruning is to design and develop a plant that conforms and per-
not to hit the house or RV.

those that have been neglected, overgrown or previously pruned incorrectly or with heading cuts). 4. To encourage root growth (may be done both above and below ground). 5. To alter intelligently the shape, form or habit of a plant (my personal favorite). 6. To encourage fruit, flower and/or foliage productions (think cut flowers and orchards). 7. To rehabilitate or rejuvenate plants (especially those that are old or in very poor condition). In the Sundays to come, we will spend some time on each purpose, with full explanation and practical use.
Purpose No. 1 Today, let’s begin with No. 1, outlined at the left. This type of pruning can and should be done all year long. The great advantage of this rule to your plants is twofold: 1. You remove the vast majority of potential disease and insect infestation, and you eliminate major opportunities for death to occur. 2. You greatly improve the
aesthetics of your plants, which for most of us is a great desire. Deadwood, crossover branches, branches that rub, a broken-off limb, diseased stem or cane — remove them all as soon as you see them. Otherwise, the broken branch will rot into the heartwood, the sap from the rubbing branches will signal to all insects “free buffet” and early-stage hot spots of disease will become epidemic. The darkest, nasty, thick, dank Douglas fir or western red cedar becomes a gorgeous woodland, filtered-light setting when hours of dead-wooding are applied, and the hard-stick-infested hedge becomes a soft-looking border of lush green leaves when this method is applied. For this week, go inventory all the plants and labor required to satisfy just the first of the seven purposes to prune.

Gardening series Briefly . . . begins Thursday Pharmacy gives $640 Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — The 2011 Clallam County Master Gardener Green Thumb Gardening Tips lecture series kicks with “Your YearRound Gardening Calendar” at noon on Thursday. The free lecture by Washington State University Clallam County Extension Master Gardener Michael Jakubcin will be in the Clallam County commissioners’ meeting room at the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St. Jakubcin will provide an overview of growing and enjoying both ornamental and edible plants through all four seasons. Topics will include timing and techniques for starting seeds indoors to grow vegetables, herbs and annual flowers; hardening off tender seedlings and transplanting; pruning fruit trees, flowering shrubs, berry cane and grape vines; and dividing and transplanting bulbs and corms such as iris, daffodils, dahlias and gladiolus. Jakubcin also will discuss selecting landscape plantings that provide extended periods of bloom, especially from late autumn through winter and early spring; harvesting and saving seed; and using covers such as cold frames and hoop houses to extend seasons.
He will review gardening books that detail these topics and provide a printed bibliography of resources. The Green Thumb series of lectures is focused on offering practical tips to help North Olympic Peninsula gardeners change or try new gardening practices. The programs will be held from noon to 1 p.m. on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month. Upcoming lecture topics will include organic soil amendments and the use of fertilizers; low-maintenance gardening; and green house growing. Lectures also address specific vegetable and landscape gardening subjects, including tomatoes, dahlias, rhododendrons, thyme, berries and fruit trees. The series is being held in the county commissioners’ meeting room this year to accommodate the increase in attendance experienced during the 2010 season. All programs are open to the public. There is no fee. However, donations to pay for printed materials accompanying the lectures will be accepted.

MOUNTAIN VIEW HEARING
Dear Amanda: People tend to look at anything that is “different.” A rainbow coalition of children is bound to draw a second look, and by now you should know it comes with the territory. That does not, however, justify the rude personal attack you received from the one person. And in my opinion, you should have shamed him or her by responding that you are a foster parent because it happens to be the truth. Dear Abby: When women are being married, they usually start showing
off their engagement/wedding ring(s). I have very selective taste, and I find many of them to be gaudy or downright ugly. What am I supposed to say when these women are expecting me to tell them, “How lovely”? Unenthused in Erie, Pa. Dear Unenthused: Try this: “Oh! Look at how it sparkles! You must be thrilled!” Then look the B-2-B in the eye and give her a warm smile.

When I am out and about with all six kids, I get nasty looks and nastier comments about them. I am tired of people looking down on me for our “weird” family. One person even suggested that I get my tubes tied and stop sleeping around! Do I ignore these comments? I refuse to tell people that they are foster kids. They have been hurt enough and do not need to be reminded about their parents living elsewhere.

The fun of questions is answering them Questions are like doors that lead to more knowledge on a subject, and they work both ways — for readers and for me. When a question is asked and the answer isn’t readily available, it means research on my part. I enjoy research. It’s also satisfying when an answer comes readily to mind. The variety of questions can be amazing, but some of the same ones are asked repeatedly: “Should we have robins at this time of the year?” That’s a familiar one, and the reason for it makes sense. Haven’t we always heard about the first robin of spring? The consensus over most of the country is that the robins migrate south for the winter. They do, but not in the Northwest. Yes, some of our robins move south, but others from up north, where there is plenty of snow and cold, consider this region “south.” We can have large flocks of robins show up in our yards in the winter. They travel together searching out sources of food. Robins do suffer when we get a hard winter with lots of snow. When worms and other insects are scarce, the least favorite berries disappear. Any winter apples that are still around also attract
Bird Watch robin flocks. “Do we Carson have true ravens in this area?” That’s another question that pops up from time to time. It also makes sense. The Northwest’s crow population is huge, and the birds vary in size from quite large to pretty small. The common crow can look as big as a raven — until you see a true raven. Historically, ravens in the Northwest have been observed in the mountains, mature forests and in open, less-populated areas. Now, they are being seen more often in places where crows once ruled. We appear to have a growing population of ravens, and that means some pretty upset and angry crows. When a raven flies overhead, the easiest way to identify it is by looking at the tip of the tail. A crow’s tail has a rounded end. The end of a raven’s tail is

Nixing nice Mom Is iron hand of Chinese parenting future for Americans raising their kids? By Judith Warner The New York Times
Peninsula Daily News
Inside the Arthur D. Feiro Marine Life Center on City Pier in Port Angeles last fall, Deborah Moriarty, administrative and education coordinator, sprinkles some sediment onto a model of the Glines Canyon Dam and Lake Mills on the Elwha River.
Treasures: Groups want dibs on dam parts Continued from C1 Interpretative panels and artwork will complete that indoor exhibit this spring, Moriarty said. Planning for the outdoor exhibit also is expected to begin this spring. “We don’t even know when or if we will get the piece of equipment,” Moriarty said, adding that it was the only piece from the Elwha dam’s powerhouse that the center requested. “We had to choose something that was durable and be outside and that people wouldn’t bang into and hurt themselves,” she said.
Historical society The Clallam County Historical Society has asked for a few more pieces, but with an eye to size. “We don’t have the capacity to take these really huge items,” said Kathy Monds, historical society executive director. The historical society has requested a piece of the powerhouse panel, the old telephone booth at the Elwha Dam, various dials and gauges and some of the tools, such as
There was bound to be some push back. All the years of nurturance overload simply got to be too much. The breast-feeding through toddlerhood, nonstop baby wearing, co-sleeping, “Baby Mozart” cowatching; the peer pressure for never-ending singsongvoiced Mommy niceness, the ever-maddening chant of “good job!”; compulsory school “involvement” (that is, teacher-delegated busywork packaged as a way to Show Your Child You Care), the rapt attendance at each and every school performance, presentation, sporting event — the whole mishmash of modern, attuned, connected, concerned, self-esteem-building parenting. The reaction came in waves. There were expert warnings, with moralists claiming that all this looseygoosey lovey-dovey-ness was destroying the hierarchical fiber of the American family, and psychologists writing that all that selfesteem building was leading to epidemic levels of pathological ninnyishness in kids. Then there was a sort of quasi-hedonist revolt, cries of rebellion like Christie Mellor’s Three Martini Playdate, mother-toddler happy hours (post-pregnancy liberation from “What to Expect” sanctimony!) and take-the-kid-out-all-night hipster parenting. Then came “free range” parenting, an appellation with the added advantage of sounding both fresh and fancy, like a Whole Foods chicken; “simplicity parenting” (recession-era lack of cash dressed up as principled rejection of expensive lessons); and, eventually, a kind of edgy irritation with it all: a new stance of gettough no-nonsense, frequently called — with no small amount of pride — being a “bad” mother.
Un-self-questioning Keith Thorpe/Peninsula Daily News
Two vintage dials provide information on the power output of one of the generators in the Elwha Dam powerhouse. “incredibly huge wrenches,” Monds said. “We’ve requested a set of those.” By March, Monds expects to have one display case in the Museum at the Carnegie devoted to the dam construction. That may be expanded later with the items the group has requested. The expanded exhibit Monds has in mind would be a representative sample of the artifacts from the dam, illustrated with old photographs. At first, artifacts would be stored at the Lincoln Center, the historical society’s office at
933 W. Ninth St. in Port Angeles, until they are organized into an exhibit for the Carnegie at 207 S.

“Bad,” of course, is relative. “I’m such a bad mother” these days tends to be a boast, as in, “Can you believe that I just said, ‘Not now,’ to my 4-year-old?” The un-self-questioning 1960s-era mother — she of the cream-of-mushroom soup in a can — evokes wistful memories. “Surrendering to motherhood” is over; as a cautionary tale, this spring HBO is running a new miniseries of “Mildred Pierce,” a Todd Haynes remake of the 1945 Joan Crawford film, in which Kate Winslet will play a mother whose life is devoured by her attempts to meet the demands of her grasping, never-satisfied daughter. (“She gave her daughter everything,” the tag line for the trailer reads. “But everything was not enough.”)
iger Mother is the story of a woman who runs her daughters’ lives with an iron hand, breaking every rule of today’s right-thinking parenting The new toughness is only partly about saving Mom’s sanity. A bigger goal is producing tougher, more resilient and (of course) higher-performing kids.
Tiger Mother “You have to be hated sometimes by someone you love and who hopefully loves you,” writes Amy Chua in Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, a just-published parenting memoir that clearly aspires to become a battle plan for a new age of re-empowered, captain-ofthe-ship motherhood. Tiger Mother is the story of a woman who runs her daughters’ lives with an iron hand, breaking every rule of today’s right-thinking parenting (praise your kids, never compare them to one another, don’t threaten to burn all their stuffed animals if their piano practice is imperfect, don’t tell them they’re “garbage”), all in the guise of practicing Chinese parenting, which, in contrast to the flaccid, touchy-feely Western variety, stresses respect, self-discipline and, above all, results. Chua, who is ChineseAmerican and a Yale law professor, pushes her children to get straight A’s, forces them to spend hours each day practicing piano and violin. They are not allowed to pursue loser activities like playing the drums, “which leads to drugs,” she says, in a typical turn of phrase that may or may or may not be facetious. She refuses them play dates and sleepovers and TV and video games, and she demands unstinting obedience and devotion to family, all of which leads, unsurprisingly, to no small amount of crying, screaming and general tension. (“I don’t want this,” Chua says, in one particularly memorable moment, when her 4-year-old daughter, Lulu, gives her a birthday card that, the mother judges, couldn’t have taken “more than 20 seconds” to make. (“I want a better one — one that you’ve put some thought and effort into. . . . I deserve better than this. So I reject this.”)
Wide resonance? Despite the obvious limits of Chua’s appeal, her publisher is clearly banking on her message finding wide resonance among American moms worn out from trying to do everything right for kids who mimic Disney Channel-style disrespect for parents, spend
hours a day on Facebook, pick at their lovingly prepared food and generally won’t get with the program. The gimmick of selling a program of Chinese parenting is a great one for a time when all the talk is of Chinese ascendancy and American decline. (If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em, kids; not for nothing does Chua make sure that her own children take the time to become fluent in Mandarin.) And there is true universality behind the message she’s honest enough to own: that she is terrified of “family decline,” that she fears that raising a “soft, entitled child” will let “my family fail.” Her deepest hope is that by insisting upon perfection from her children in all things, like violin playing, she will be able to achieve, in her words, control: “Over generational decline. Over birth order. Over one’s destiny. Over one’s children.” The terror of losing ground is the ultimate driving force in the middle- and upper-middle-class American family today, and however unique Chua’s elaboration of it (simply by marrying a Jew, and not a Chinese man, she worries that she is “letting down 4,000 years of civilization”), however obnoxious and over the top her attempts to cope, she is hardly alone in believing that, in her carefully considered ministrations, she will find the perfect alchemy that will allow her to inoculate her kids against personal and professional misfortune.
Parental control Through all the iterations of Mommy madness, “good” and “bad,” this article of faith always remains intact: that parents can have control. Developmental neuroscientists may talk of genes and as-yet-undiscoveredand-hence-uncontrollable environmental factors that affect the developing fetus, social scientists may talk of socioeconomic background and the predictive power of parents’ level of education — the rest of us keep hope alive that parental actions, each and every moment of each and every better-lived day, have the ultimate ability to shape a child’s life outcome. The notion that parental choices — for early-onset Suzuki or otherwise — have this uniquely determinative effect is, in light of current research, almost adorably quaint, akin to beliefs that cats must be kept out of a baby’s bedroom at night lest they climb into the crib and suck away the child’s breath. But it remains part and parcel of modern mother love.

Liberal voice Olbermann leaves MSNBC By David Bauder
The Associated Press
NEW YORK — Keith Olbermann’s exit from MSNBC appeared abrupt to viewers of his show, but the talk-show host and his network were involved “in a relationship that’s been failing for a long time,” an NBC Universal executive said Saturday. Olbermann’s announcement at the end of Friday’s “Countdown” that it would be his last show quiets, at least for the moment, the most dominant liberal voice in a cable-television world where opinionated talk has been the most bankable trend over the past several years. As Olbermann read from a James Thurber short story during a three-minute exit statement Friday night, MSNBC simultaneously e-mailed a statement to reporters that the network
Keith Olbermann No more “Countdown” and host “have ended their contract.” Neither indicated a reason nor addressed whether Olbermann quit or was fired. But the NBC Universal executive characterized it as a mutual parting of the ways, with Olbermann taking the first step. The execu-

that “there were many occasions, particularly in the last 2½ years, where all that surrounded the show — but never the show itself — was just too much for me. But your support and loyalty and, if I may use the word, insistence, ultimately required that I keep going. My gratitude to you is boundless.” “He did more than anybody to establish the credibility of progressive views through market-driven success,” said David Brock, founder and CEO of the left-wing media watchdog Media Matters for America. Olbermann’s show was also an incubator for leftwing talent on the air, he said. Two-thirds of MSNBC’s prime-time lineup, Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O’Donnell, got their own shows after successfully subbing for Olbermann.
His show also gave platforms to bloggers like Josh Marshall and Markos Moulitsas, as well as his own organization and the Center for American Progress, Brock said. After Giffords was shot in the head Jan. 8, Olbermann came into the studio and took to the air on his day off with an emotional editorial saying politicians and talk-show personalities — including himself — need to swear off any kind of violent imagery so as not to incite anybody into acts like the Giffords shooting. He said Jan. 10 that he was ending his “Worst Person in the World” feature because some viewers took literally a feature that was “born in humor.” MSNBC is replacing Olbermann with O’Donnell and moving anchor Ed Schultz into the 10 p.m. time slot.

Mourners recall Shriver’s charity, idealism By Brett Zongker The Associated Press
POTOMAC, Md. — R. Sargent Shriver was always an optimist, pioneering the Peace Corps and running the War on Poverty during the turbulent 1960s — an idealist even as the running mate on a Democratic presidential ticket doomed for failure. At his funeral Mass on Saturday, mourners from philanthropist and musician Bono to Vice President Joe Biden to former President Bill Clinton honored a man who dedicated his life to serving others. The celebration was filled with songs, laughter and fond memories. “Fifty years ago, President Kennedy told us we should ask what we can do for our country,” Clinton said.
Generation understood “A whole generation of us understood what President Kennedy meant by looking at Sargent Shriver’s life.” Shriver, who died Tuesday at age 95, was affectionately known as “Sarge.” He grew up during the Great Depression, went to Yale on a scholarship and served in the Navy during World War II. Then, he fulfilled his brother-in-law John F. Kennedy’s campaign promise by

The casket is carried out after the wake for R. Sargent Shriver at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Washington on Friday. His funeral was Saturday. developing the Peace Corps into a lasting international force. “When he was starting the Peace Corps from scratch, many people thought he was naive and too idealistic, wanting to
send a bunch of young Americans abroad” to some of the poorest countries of the world, said his son, Mark Shriver. “Daddy saw people helping people.” Others were inspired to their own social activism.
“I was a student really of the Sarge way of doing things,” U2 frontman Bono told The Associated Press after singing at the service. Bono founded the Red Campaign with Shriver’s eldest son Bobby to fight AIDS in Africa. “It’s a rare combination of grace and strategy,” Bono said of Sargent Shriver. First lady Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey attended. Wyclef Jean played the piano and sang “All the Ends of the Earth” as guests — and even Cardinal Donald Wuerl, the archbishop of Washington — clapped along. Later, Vanessa Williams softly performed “Soon and Very Soon.” Bono and Glen Hansard, who starred in the movie “Once,” sang “Make Me a Channel of Your Peace.” One by one, many of Shriver’s 19 grandchildren read short remembrances about their grandfather, recalling his passion for helping people, his hugs and his love of baseball. Shriver’s youngest son, Anthony Shriver, welcomed guests before the Mass began, cracking jokes and honoring his father for always making people feel valued. Anthony Shriver recalled one of his last conversations with his father. He said his

“Everyone knew President Nixon was going to win re-election, unless he robbed a bank,” Clinton said, drawing laughs. Still, Shriver campaigned until the end, even when it was most difficult. “Sargent Shriver was going to go out with his head held high,” Clinton said. Biden credited Shriver for helping him win his own Senate seat in Delaware during a tough race that same year. A last-minute visit from Shriver put him over the top in a heavily Republican state at the time. “That’s when the sun rose for me,” Biden said. “He refused to allow pessimism to shape his thinking,” Biden said. “It wasn’t in his DNA.”

Ninety-five year old longtime Port Angeles resident, Eva Mae Lance Ritter, passed away on January 19, 2011, following complications from congestive heart failure. Eva was born to Charles (Gus) and Ada Mae Lance in Freewater, Oregon, on August 11, 1915. When she was gradeschool age, her family relocated to Port Angeles, where she spent most of her younger and adult life. On December 26, 1932, she married Henry C. Ritter. Henry was in the Coast Guard and assigned to the Coast Guard Cutter Snohomish. In 1934, after his discharge from the Coast Guard, Henry, Eva and young son, Don, moved to his house in Cope, South Carolina. After South Carolina — with some time spent around Whitefish/Kalispell,
Mrs. Ritter Montana, en route — the family (by now four children) returned to the Port Angeles area, where a fifth child (Linda) was later born. Eva was a stay-athome mother, where her primary focus was caring for the family. She later demonstrated the same love and affection for her grandchildren. During her retirement years, prior to Henry passing on August 9, 1999, she enjoyed traveling with their camp trailer.
Eva was an avid baseball fan and her favorite team was the Seattle Mariners. She loved bowling and bowled in various women’s leagues. Reading, crossword puzzles, flower gardening and walking also occupied much of her time. Eva is survived by a younger brother, Eugene Lance of Tooele, Utah; son, Don (Pat) Ritter of Olympia, Washington; and daughters Louise Dryke, Petie (Gary) Marler and Carol Doyle. In addition to many nieces and nephews, she also leaves 20 grandchildren, 36 great-grandchildren and three greatgreat-grandchildren. Husband, Henry; daughter, Linda McDonald; sister, Mildred Stratton; and brothers, Dale Lance and Don (Whitey) Lance preceded her in death.

father told him: “You tell Cardinal Wuerl to make Eunice a saint!” The crowd erupted in laughter. Shriver’s late wife was Special Olympics founder Eunice Kennedy Shriver. Tim Shriver — now chairman and CEO of the Special Olympics — said his father never coddled the children but “coached us to pursue those big, big ideas.” Tim Shriver encouraged others to see the world the way his father did: “I hope you, too, will carry a little Sarge in you.” Sargent Shriver was a businessman and lawyer descended from a prominent Maryland family. He had suffered from Alzheimer’s disease for the past eight years. His wife died in 2009 at age 88. Shriver was buried later Saturday alongside his wife at a cemetery in Barnstable, Mass. Earlier in Maryland, Mark Shriver recalled some of his father’s final years. “Alzheimer’s robs you of so much. In Dad’s case, it stripped him to the core,” he said. Still, he “would shake your hand and smile, look you in the eye and tell you you were the greatest and

Victoria Express sets runs during MV Coho midwinter break It’s midwinter “vacation” time for the venerable MV Coho car-passenger ferry. The passenger ferry Victoria Express will again step in to maintain a weekend link between Port Angeles and Victoria during the Coho’s two-week break. Today’s Coho round trip — departing Port Angeles at 8:20 a.m. and Victoria at 10:30 a.m. — will be the last for the 51-year-old ferry before it is taken to a shipyard in Seattle for its annual maintenance in dry dock. While it’s gone, the Victoria Express will provide Friday and weekend foot-passenger service to and from Victoria. Victoria Express will depart Port Angeles at 8:30 a.m. Jan. 28-30 and Feb. 4-6, leaving Victoria at 4 p.m. on those days. Fares for the 55-minute crossing are $25 U.S. per person one way or $50 round trip. Boarding in Port Angeles is from The Landing mall, 115 E. Railroad Ave., just east of the Coho terminal. The terminal used in Victoria by Victoria Express is at 254 Belleville St., just west of the Black Ball terminal used by the Coho. Passports or other approved travel documents are always required for crossing the international border. Details are at www.victoriaexpress.com or www.cohoferry.com. In addition to the customary annual maintenance below decks, the Coho this year is getting a cafeteria remodeling. New cafeteria seating will be installed during the two-week break — which ends when the Coho departs from its Port Angeles dock on Feb. 8 at 8:20 a.m. to resume its year-round trips to and from Victoria. Starting Feb. 8, the cafeteria, onboard duty free and gift shops will offer a larger selection of products thanks to storage facility enhancements at the Port Angeles dock, a Black Ball Ferry Line spokesperson said. Reservations for passage on the Victoria Express for the special weekend service are not mandatory but are suggested. Phone 360-452-8088 or visit www.victoriaexpress.com. The only way to get cars and other motor vehicles to Vancouver Island during the two weeks the Coho is on hiatus is by driving to Tsawwassen, B.C., south of Vancouver, and driving aboard a British Columbia ferry to Swartz Bay, about 15 miles north of Victoria.

A transient killer whale faces off against a larger gray whale off the coast of Alaska.
Why they call orcas killer whales Study uncovers how they feast on grays By Judith Lavoie
Victoria Times Colonist
VICTORIA — A close-knit group of transient killer whales are killing and eating almost onethird of eastern Pacific gray whale calves born each year, a new four-year study has found. The research, by a team of Canadian and U.S scientists, also found that the killer whales are storing the carcasses of gray whales in relatively shallow water and returning to feed for several days. It is the first time such food-storing behavior has been documented. The killer whales congregate around Unimak Island, Alaska, and for about one month during the gray whale migration eat gray whale calves and yearlings almost exclusively — even though the adult grays are much larger than killer whales and calves are almost as large as the predators — said Lance Barrett-Lennard, Vancouver (B.C.) Aquarium research scientist, one of the study’s authors. “The killer whales use a bunch of techniques to separate [gray whale] mothers from the calves,” he said.

Forks mayor to field queries from chamber FORKS — Mayor Bryon Monohon makes a return trip to the Forks Chamber of Commerce membership luncheon to field questions from the audience on Wednesday.

Wednesday’s Chamber of Commerce meeting, open to the public, starts with no-host lunch at noon at JT’s Sweet Stuffs, 80 N. Forks Ave. Lunch costs $8; a bowl of soup; $4.75; and a cup of soup, $4.

“The mothers will often defend their calves and, if the mother is very aggressive, the killer whales will give up. “The very pugnacious females seem to rule,” he said. It is difficult to watch as the gray females try to get the calf to shallow water and or try rolling over, nestling the calf in their flippers or on top of them, Barrett-Lennard said.
‘Battle to the death’ “It’s a real battle to the death and, if the female releases the calf it’s very one-sided and they kill it very quickly by grabbing it by the snout or the pectoral flipper and pulling it under until it drowns,” Barrett-Lennard said. Transient killer whales have previously been seen killing gray whales in Monterey Bay, Calif., and off the west coast of Vancouver Island, but not in the organized fashion or in the quantities documented in the study. Gray whales have rebounded from human overhunting and their number is now believed to be between 18,000 and 20,000, so the predation is not likely to adversely affect populations, Barrett-Lennard said.

Experts advise that pets be restrained with a harness or carrier when riding in moving vehicles, as opposed to the pooch hanging out the driver’s-side window, upper right. Peninsula Daily News news services
LOS ANGELES — While lawmakers have been banning drivers from texting or using cellphones, many motorists are riding around with another danger: their pets. Experts say an unrestrained dog or other pet — whether curled up on a lap, hanging out the window or resting its paws on the steering wheel — can be deadly. Tens of thousands of car accidents are believed caused every year by unrestrained pets, though no one has solid numbers. “An unrestrained pet can be hugely distracting — if he is seeking your attention, putting his face right in front of yours, starts chewing up the upholstery or is vomiting because he is carsick,” said Katherine Miller, director of applied science and research for the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
The issue is drawing attention in some statehouses. Hawaii is the only state that forbids drivers from operating a vehicle with a pet on their lap. But Oregon lawmakers are considering fining drivers who hold their pets behind the wheel. And some cities are taking action. A few states have distracteddriving laws that could apply to holding an animal, but they don’t specifically mention animals in the law. Washington state has no such law.
Many distractions In 2009, 5,474 people were killed and 448,000 injured in crashes caused by distracted drivers in the United States, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Cell phones were the top distraction, the cause of 18 percent of
Keeping Fido away from the wheel the deaths and 5 percent of injury crashes. The agency does not track accidents caused by pets, but said they are counted among other distractions such as disruptive passengers, misbehaving children or drivers who attempt to put on makeup or read. Author Stephen King suffered several broken bones and a collapsed lung in 1999 when he was hit by a driver who claimed he was distracted by his dog. In a crash, an unrestrained pet can turn into a deadly projectile or get crushed by a driver or passenger who is thrown forward by the collision. Good pet owners will use a harness or carrier and secure their pets in the middle of the back seat, said Miller of the ASPCA. That keeps dogs and other pets from getting hurt or bouncing around and hurting others. Turn

Immigration raid ELLENSBURG — Hispanic residents tearfully looked on as friends and relatives appeared in court following an immigration raid. The raid in Ellensburg resulted in 14 criminal arrests — 13 of them women — on charges of using false documents or falsely claiming U.S. citizenship. One person was charged with re-entry into the U.S. after deportation. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said 16 others are being held on immigration violations at a detention center. In a statement, ICE officials said the investigation centered on the manufacture and purchase of counterfeit identity and employment documents, though none of those arrested faced charges to that effect on Friday.
Bank drops arena SEATTLE — Seattle’s KeyArena is getting a new name. Seattle Center announced Friday that KeyBank declined to renew its naming rights for the home of the WNBA’s Seattle Storm. The facility, which also hosts concerts and other events, has been known as KeyArena for 15 years, during most of which the NBA Seattle SuperSonics played in it until the franchise moved to Oklahoma City. Seattle Center officials are discussing naming rights with other organizations, and they said the arena will keep its name until a new sponsor is chosen.
Nation/World GE up 52 percent NEW YORK — General Electric Co. said Friday that fourth-quarter net income increased 52 percent as the company made more money in both its lending and industrial businesses. The lending arm, GE Capital, drove the company’s results in the final three months of 2010 as it dealt with fewer loan defaults. Risky loans hammered the company during the financial crisis, forcing GE to book huge writedowns. Industrial sales also rose during the fourth quarter and orders for equipment, an indication of future business, jumped 20 percent. The results show that rising energy and raw material costs so far haven’t cooled off global demand for consumer products. Turn

Love affair with fireplace cooling? Smoke pollution stirs worry By Christina Lewis The New York Times
NEW YORK — Hard as it may be to believe, the fireplace — long considered a trophy in homes — is acquiring a social stigma. Among those who aspire to be environmentally responsible, it is joining the ranks of bottled water and big houses. “The smoke from a fire smells very nice,” said Diane Bailey, a senior scientist with the Natural Resources Defense Council in San Francisco. “But it can cause a lot of harm.” The tiny particles, she said, “can cause inflammation and illness, and can cross into the bloodstream, triggering heart attacks” as well as worsening other conditions. Or as Starre Vartan, a 33-year-old blogger who goes by the name Eco-Chick, put it: “Any time you are burning wood or cow dung, you’ll be creating pollution. “It’s like junk food: if you do it once a month, then who cares? “But if it’s something you do every day, it’s important that you mitigate it somehow. It’s a hazard.” Not surprisingly, the green community has been sounding the alarm for some time. For the last several years, TheDailyGreen.com, an online magazine, has advocated replacing all wood-burning fireplaces with electric ones. An article published in September by Shireen Qudosi, entitled “Breathe Easier With a Cleaner Fireplace,” argued that there is no such thing as an environmentally responsible fire. “Switching out one type of wood for another is still use of a natural resource that otherwise could have been spared,” Qudosi wrote. And last fall, an article on the Web site Green Blizzard.com, “Cozy Winter Fires — Carbon Impact,” called wood-burning fires “a direct pollutant to you, your family and your community.”
Air pollution issues Organizations like the American Lung Association are issuing warnings as well. The group recommends that consumers avoid wood fires altogether, citing research that names wood stoves and fireplaces as major contributors to particulate-matter air pollution in much of the United States. Wood smoke contains some of the same particulates as cigarette smoke, said Dr. Norman H. Edelman, the chief medical officer for the American Lung Association, as well as known carcinogens like aldehydes It has also been linked to respiratory problems in young children. “We now know from lots of studies that wood smoke is very, very irritating,” Edelman said. “It contains a lot of irritating gases and it also contains damaging particulate matter. “It’s probably not good for anybody, and it’s especially bad for anybody who has a chronic respiratory problem.” So the association strongly advises people not to use the traditional fireplace, he said. Growing concerns about

Many cities across the nation are putting restrictions on the construction and use of wood-burning fireplaces. the air pollution and health problems caused by smoke from wood fires are prompting a number of areas across the country to pass laws regulating them. “A lot of municipalities are taking action,” said Bailey, adding that the weatherbased measures called burn bans are perhaps the most widespread restriction.
Local restrictions When the weather is cold and the air is still, or pollution is high, the Bay Area in California, Puget Sound, Wash., Denver and Albuquerque are among the places with restrictions on residential wood-burning. These measures can be mandatory or voluntary, and can become more restrictive as air quality declines. So far, most of the woodburning regulations tend to be out West. n Idaho offers tax incentives to people who replace uncertified wood stoves with “greener” ones. n San Joaquin County in California forbids selling a home unless its wood stove is replaced with one certified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. n Palo Alto and other municipalities in California prohibit wood-burning fireplaces or stoves in new construction. Perhaps not coincidentally, sales of wood-burning appliances dropped to 235,000 in 2009 from 800,000 in 1999, according to the Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Association. And the Brick Industry Association, which promotes brick construction, reports that roughly 35,000 masonry fireplaces were installed in the United States in 2009, compared to 80,000 in 2005.
Infrequent use Certainly those numbers reflect the economic slowdown, but they may also be affected by growing ambivalence to wood fires. In any case, most fireplaces are used far too infrequently to cause any real damage to the environment, said Stephen Sears, the vice president of marketing and member services for the Brick Industry Association, voicing an opinion shared by some. In the East, he wrote in an e-mail, air pollution is at its worst in the summer, and in the West the regulations are an overreaction: “Because it is not realistic to test each unique masonry fireplace in a laboratory” to evaluate its emissions, he noted, “it is easier for some municipalities to arbitrarily limit” the use of all wood-burning fireplaces. Karen Soucy, an associate publisher at a nonprofit
For those who still want to build a fire, there are several ways to make it more environmentally friendly, experts say, including using an energy-efficient wood or pellet stove certified by the EPA or retrofitting a fireplace with an insert (a device, usually made of iron or steel, that fits into the mouth of a fireplace and enables it to heat more efficiently). Sally Treadwell, a 51-year-old public relations executive in Boone, N.C., said nothing makes her happier than building a fire on a cold winter night.
Ford minivan That’s a similar strategy to Ford Motor Co., which released a new small minivan at the Detroit auto show. The company’s seven-seat C-Max minivan is built on the frame of a Ford Focus small car. The van will go on sale at the end of this year. Hybrid and electric versions will follow. Now, only minivans can be built off Chrysler’s minivan frame. Chrysler also plans a hybrid minivan by 2013, Marchionne said. Chrysler controls about a third of the U.S. minivan market, but rivals are nipping at its heels. The Chrysler Town and Country was the top-selling minivan in the U.S. last year, with sales of 112,275, or about 4,000 more than the Honda Odyssey. Chrysler said the 2011 versions of its minivans have a new V-6 engine with improved fuel economy.
Two new drugs offer hope against hepatitis C The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — There’s new hope for an overlooked epidemic: Two powerful drugs are nearing the market that promise to help cure many more people of liver-attacking hepatitis C — even though most who have the simmering infection don’t know it yet.

ment revolution is spurring the government to consider if it’s time to start screening aging baby boomers for hepatitis C, just like they get various cancer checks. “We’re entering a whole new era of therapy,” says Dr. John Ward, hepatitis chief at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “We really want to begin that clarion call for action for this population who’s at risk.” Today’s two-drug treatment for hepatitis C cures only about 40 percent of people with the most common variety of the virus, and causes some grueling side effects.
Now major studies show that adding a new drug — either Vertex Pharmaceuticals’ telaprevir or Merck & Co.’s boceprevir — can boost those cure rates as high as 75 percent. They also allow some people to cut treatment time in half, to six months, thus lessening how long they must deal with those side effects. If the Food and Drug Administration approves the drugs — a decision widely expected this summer — they would be the first that work by directly targeting the hepatitis C virus.

environmental magazine, isn’t swayed by that argument. She refuses to enter a home where wood has been burned, even infrequently. Soucy, 46, blames fumes from a wood fire for sending her to the emergency room 25 years ago with a severe asthma attack. She had been staying at a friend’s house in Stowe, Vt., for about a day, she said, when her lungs seized up. She was taken to a hospital in an ambulance, and got two shots of adrenalin; the doctors blamed her friend’s cat. “It was only later, working with a team of allergy doctors and pulmonologists, did we determine the culprit to be the wood-burning fumes from the various fireplaces,” Soucy said.
WINDSOR, Ontario — Chrysler is debating the future of its minivans even as it starts making the 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town and Country this month. “We need to completely rethink the minivan,” CEO Sergio Marchionne said Tuesday at the Canadian plant where Chrysler’s minivans are made. “We need to retain all its functionality but make it much more versatile.” Marchionne said that could mean new products that can still carry a lot of people but won’t look like traditional minivans. A team within the company is also studying whether to continue both the Town and Country, which is more upscale and starts at $30,000, or the Grand Caravan, which is about $7,000 cheaper. Both are made on the same frame. At the recent Detroit auto show, Marchionne said offering both minivans in Chrysler dealerships is confusing to customers. Marchionne said Chrysler Group LLC is developing a new frame that can be used for minivans or other kinds of vehicles and will come out in
2013 or 2014. That will allow the company to build smaller minivans, crossovers, or cars depending on what buyers want.

Gasoline prices up 9% in less than 2 months Peninsula Daily News and The Associated Press
Gasoline prices have risen nearly 9 percent since Dec. 1 — and went up another three cents last week to average $3.27 a gallon for regular unleaded on Saturday across the North Olympic Peninsula. That’s the highest price since October 2008 and above the statewide average of $3.25, according to the AAA auto club. The national average for regular gasoline was about $3.12 a gallon on Friday, AAA said. Crude oil prices hovered at more than $90 per barrel for the second week in a row on demand for heating oil, due to the northern hemisphere’s bitterly cold winter. Oil prices have also risen on the falling value of the dollar, which weakened against 10 of its most-
traded foreign counterparts last week. That has meant people who trade in foreign currencies can buy more oil for the same amount because oil is priced in dollars on the world market. The price may rise or fall a little over the next few months, but analysts expect it to range between $3.20 and $3.75 gallon by March and April ahead of the summer driving season.
Winter dropoff Americans typically drive less in the winter. Demand is about 1 percentage point higher than a year ago but remains weaker than the historical average, said energy analyst Jim Ritterbusch. The nation’s gasoline supplies remain above the five-year average.
Over the next couple of months, refineries will conduct regular maintenance to prepare for the changeover to summer driving mixes. That could affect supplies, but gas prices should remain steady to a few cents more, according to oil analyst Tom Kloza of Oil Price Information Service. By spring Kloza expects the average price to rise to between $3.50 and $3.75 a gallon. Ritterbusch expects $3.20 to $3.25 a gallon by Memorial Day. For every penny the price at the pump increases, it costs consumers overall an additional $4 million, according to Cameron Hanover analyst Peter Beutel. If the price goes up a dime a gallon, consumers pay $40 million more each day for that increase.

“I had speculated that another way would be to drive [the prey] into shallow areas, but we hadn’t previously seen any evidence of that.”. The researchers found the killer whales would kill grays in depths of 32 to 65 feet and would then leave for 24 hours or more before returning to feed again. Scientists found they could identify the site of the stored carcass because it would leach droplets of oil, which leave a sheen on the surface of the water, Barrett-Lennard said.
It is possible other groups of transients are practicing similar behavior, but this group appears isolated and distinct, and have characteristic welts on their bodies, he said. The discovery that killer whales are storing the carcasses was unexpected, Barrett-Lennard said. Usually, if they kill in deep water, they have only a short time to eat before the carcass drops to the bottom of the ocean, and killer whales are not deep divers. “Sometimes they hold up Bears eat, too the carcass and get a few more feedings out of it, but A spinoff discovery was it’s very hard work,” Bar- that killer whale predation also provides food for Alasrett-Lennard said.

A short-circuit to distracted driving Cell phones may shut off behind wheel By Matt Richtel
The New York Times
NEW YORK — Cellular carriers, having spent years trying to blanket the nation with phone service, are now working on ways to stop people from getting calls and texts when they are behind the wheel. The technology is aimed at curbing dangerous distractions by temporarily interrupting service, short-circuiting the temptation for people to respond to the chime of their phones. T-Mobile announced a service last week that, for $4.99 a month, automatically disables rings and alerts and sends calls to voice mail when the phone is in a
moving car. Sprint Nextel and AT&T said they were exploring the technology. Verizon Wireless has been cooperating with small companies to offer a similar service on its network. The services being tested and deployed are voluntary and can be overridden if a driver needs to use the phone for an emergency. They face real challenges in that the technology, for now, cannot distinguish whether a phone belongs to a driver or a passenger — or, for that matter, a bus rider. Some safety advocates said it was not clear how widely consumers would adopt such technologies or whether they could work effectively. Many cellphone applications already are available from independent companies that claim to shut down a smartphone when it is moving quickly, but they have received tepid reviews from consumers and researchers.

Really old dog, new tricks Study IDs mutt aged 9,400 years By Clarke Canfield The Associated Press
The Associated Press
Researcher Samuel Belknap III holds the skull of a domestic dog at the University of Maine in Orono. Belknap found a bone fragment of what he says is the oldest-known domesticated dog in North America. Dogs have played an important role in human culture for thousands of years. There are archaeological records of dogs going back 31,000 years from a site in Belgium, 26,000 years in the Czech Republic and 15,000 years in Siberia, said Robert Wayne, a professor of evolutionary biology at UCLA and a dog evolution expert. But canine records in the New World aren’t as detailed or go back nearly as far. For his research, Belknap — who does not own a dog himself — had fecal samples shipped to him that had been unearthed in 1974 and 1975 from an archaeological site known as Hinds Cave and kept in storage at Texas A&M University. The fragment is about six-tenths of an inch long and three- to four-tenths of an inch wide, or about the size of a fingernail on a person’s pinkie. He and a fellow student identified the bone as a fragment from where the skull connects with the spine. He said it came from a dog that probably resembled the small, short-nosed, short-haired mutts that were common among the Indians of the Great Plains. Judging by the size of the bone, Belknap figures the dog weighed about 25 to 30 pounds. He also found what he thinks was a bone from a dog foot, but the fragment was too small to be analyzed. Other archaeological digs have put dogs in the U.S. dating back 8,000 years or more, but this is the first

time it has been scientifically proved that dogs were here that far back, he said. Darcy Morey, a faculty member at Radford University who has studied dog evolution for decades, said a study from the 1980s dated a dog found at Danger Cave, Utah, at between 9,000 and 10,000 years old. Those dates were based not on carbon-dating or DNA tests, but on an analysis of the surrounding rock layers. “So 9,400 years old may be the oldest, but maybe not,” Morey said in an e-mail.

It doesn’t surprise Belknap that dogs were a source of food for humans. A lot of people in Central America regularly ate dogs, he said. Across the Great Plains, some Indian tribes ate dogs when food was scarce or for celebrations, he said. “It was definitely an accepted practice among many populations,” he said.
The earliest dogs in North America are believed to have come with the early settlers across the Bering land bridge from Asia to the Americas 10,000 years ago or earlier, said Wayne, who has not seen Belknap’s research.
NO DELIVERY FEE NO HAZMAT FEE
WASHINGTON — As if lost jobs and foreclosed homes weren’t enough, here’s another lingering effect of the recession — foundering retirement accounts. Almost 3 million people ages 36 to 62 are now at risk of not having enough money to retire because their 401(k) accounts tumbled and the value of their homes fell, according to data released by the nonpartisan Employee Benefit Research Institute.
That figure measures only bare-bone readiness — having enough for food, shelter and uninsured medical expenses. “If we added in standard of living and luxury items it would be a much bigger” number of people, said Jack VanDerhei, who wrote the report. And that’s not to mention the millions of others who already weren’t on financial track to retire. As with most financial retirement issues, the answer is to save more money.
request of customers who said they “need help while they’re driving.” “There are people who know they get distracted while driving and feel responsible enough to themselves that they want help,” said the executive, Torrie Dorrell, vice president for apps, content and games at T-Mobile. She said the technology “negates those endorphins” that an incoming message can spark. Ms. Dorrell also said T-Mobile was hearing from parents who “desperately want to keep their kid off the phone when he or she is driving.” The DriveSmart service works by detecting when the phone is switching among cell towers. It then activates the phone’s GPS receiver to try to verify that the phone is moving quickly. After about 10 seconds of motion it will automatically send a call to voice mail or a text to the in-box without notifying the driver of its presence.
protects them from themselves,” he said. The carrier involvement is “a very important step.” Research shows that motorists talking on phones face a crash risk that is four times greater than that of motorists not on phones, while texting and driving is far more dangerous. Studies also show that it can be difficult for people to ignore the ping of an incoming text or call — for psychological and physiological reasons. People may fear missing an important call from a friend or boss, or get excited by the prospect of receiving interesting news. Physiologically, researchers say, the lure of mobile devices has addictive properties, in that people feel an adrenaline burst when a call or text comes in and get a rush when they answer. An executive at T-Mobile said the company was introducing its new DriveSmart service at the
OAKLAND, Calif. — A second-grade teacher in Northern California was placed on paid leave while a school and police investigate accounts by students that classmates engaged in oral sex and stripped off some clothes during class. The investigation was under way at Markham Elementary School in Oakland, where the principal notified parents of the situation in a letter Thursday. “We believe if the reports are true, there was a serious lapse of judgment or lack of supervision in the classroom,” said Troy Flint, a spokesman for the Oakland Unified School District. “We’re investigating how could this have happened.” The teacher, a man whose name has not been released, told investigators he did not see any of the acts authorities suspect occurred last week. The teacher is barred from the school at least until the investigation is completed.
Why not the off switch?
PORTLAND, Maine — Nearly 10,000 years ago, man’s best friend provided protection and companionship — and an occasional meal. That’s what researchers are saying after finding a bone fragment from what they are calling the earliest confirmed domesticated dog in the Americas. University of Maine graduate student Samuel Belknap III came across the fragment while analyzing a dried-out sample of human waste unearthed in southwest Texas in the 1970s. A carbon-dating test put the age of the bone at 9,400 years, and a DNA analysis confirmed it came from a dog — not a wolf, coyote or fox, Belknap said. Because it was found deep inside a pile of human excrement and was the characteristic orange-brown color that bone turns when it has passed through the digestive tract, the fragment provides the earliest direct evidence that dogs — besides being used for company, security and hunting — were eaten by humans and may even have been bred as a food source, he said. There are 20 children in Belknap wasn’t researchthe second-grade class, Flint ing dogs when he found the said. bone.

Still, the safety advocates said the move by the major carriers to get involved is a critical, if overdue, step against distracted driving. They say that the carriers, by testing this technology, integrating it into their phones and putting their marketing muscle behind it, could be forceful allies in a fight to help people resist what they say is the compulsive lure of mobile devices.

have less of a stress-inducing factor in the homes of single parents. Here, researchers reason that questions regarding changing freedoms and options of growing children do not induce the friction of differing parental opinions and decisions in single-parent homes; obviously, therefore, reducing tensions and raising feelings of happiness. None of that eases the difficulty of your current situation, but it’s important to know the current rough waters will not always remain so stressful. Teenagers do grow up. My wife and I survived the teenage years of three daughters, so I know firsthand just how stressful this time can be. It’s a bumpy road, but you will turn a corner one day soon, and you will be amazed by the difference a year can make.

“I do feel pretty safe. My brother is a deputy sheriff, and that really helps. I’ve never had any incidents at all. I’m not a pepper spray fan either. Another lady once had pepper spray in a restaurant and it went off accidentally. I never liked it after that and never considered carrying it. I feel safe out in my area anyway.”
“I feel pretty safe. I come from a big family, and I have three brothers. So I’m not intimidated by men. So I feel OK. Generally, we all get along well and are very protective of each other, even if at certain times we don’t get along.”

I had designed and built a golf course in the country and had been asked to stay on and manage the facility. After knowing each other for only six months, we married. This was in 1995. Now 15 years later, we’re still happily married. But what has happened in between is remarkable. I’m 72, my wife is 50. In 2004, I retired.

Class allows joy to rise and spread By Diane Urbani de la Paz for
PORT ANGELES — It’s pitch dark and 25 degrees, but the women here feel lithe and warm. We skim hands around our hair and across our shoulders, then extend our palms into midair. Right hip, then left, swings out. We feel the music spiral around our spines. Suddenly, we’re fluid, feeling a rush of sweetness through our veins. This is just another winter-time Zumba class, but it feels so good, I think my feet might leave the floor, allowing me to float up on a wave of warm wind, out the window and up toward heaven. This happens a lot. And when it does, I think back to what Catherine Calderon taught me about this salsa move, this brushing the hair and reaching out. Cathy, in leading me through a five-day salsa
workshop at the Esalen retreat center in Big Sur, Calif., taught me about the Orishas, gods and goddesses worshipped by the Africans forcibly moved to Cuba.
Story of Oshun Oshun (oh-SHOON), the river goddess, is the one whose story lives in my mind. It’s like a dream, only it doesn’t fade. Here’s how it goes: Oshun, in her wisdom, knows how to surround her senses with beauty; she loves to bathe in the river, with the sun shining warm on her back. Her favorite food is honey, so at midday, she slathers her skin and hair with the golden liquid. When she sees Changó, a stranger, making his way through the forest toward her, she brings her hand across her hair, then extends it, full of honey, toward him. Then she brings both hands to her waist, also glistening with

“Dancing is health,” he says. “Dancing is the most delicious thing there is . . . don’t deny yourself.” Each of us has the rhythm of the heartbeat. Each of us holds an inner melody. At the end of our salsa class, we were to throw a party for our neighbors at Esalen, people who had been in other personal growth workshops all week, “processing” childhood trauma, pondering a career change, digging deep into past pain. Your main mission at this party, Cathy instructed, is to be spreaders of joy. Those people who come to the party to sit and watch from one end of the room may be going through any number of trials. So invite them to dance. Invite them to joy. We all have this inside us, wherever we come from. Cathy is an Irish-American from Brooklyn, N.Y. In our salsa workshop were people from Virginia, Chicago, California and Seattle. By the fifth day, we had all learned to listen to our inner joy impulse. I had begun the class feeling self-conscious and tense. But Cathy’s salsa music and gentle teaching style loosened my limbs. I discovered that I can do this joy-spreading thing at lots of locations: at a party, a concert or a Zumba class. I can let go of my tightness, I can make an S with my spine, an 8 with my hips. I can open my heart wide. I can brush my hand across my hair, across my waist, and extend it, full of honey.

They celebrated their bodies and the spirits that still belonged to them. We’re doing the same thing today, Cathy showed us: We’re dancing these dances that have the power to spread joy. Now and then, we have a visit from Oshun, according to another of the stories Diane Urbani de la Paz/for Peninsula Woman about her.

babies, many of my friends are concerned with how much and when to feed their 6 to 12 month old. This is simply crazy to me, and I’d like to know if drastic changes need to be implemented right away for our young, as well as older, children’s diets or if this is just another off-thewall scare tactic to make parents feel guilty.

Rebecca Wanagel, left, works with Bill Mueller to maintain the Adventure Route segment of the Olympic Discovery Trail near Joyce. As volunteers with the Thursday Trail Crew, they collapse small tunnels animals have dug beneath the trail and and then fill the depressions with earth.
“Having access to our local forests and [Olympic] National Park and National Forest through trails for running, biking and/or hiking,” she says, “is something for which I never stop feeling grateful.”
Rebecca Wanagel musician and teacher
Wanagel grew up in Ithaca, N.Y., the eldest sister in a family of 11 children. As a young girl, she suffered from a hearing impairment that her mother suspects was due to a low-grade measles infection during her pregnancy. “There was an outbreak of rubella in 1965, the year I was born, so that theory is quite plausible,” Wanagel says. Her hearing grew worse over the years, but Wanagel’s parents didn’t treat her like a child with a disability. For this and for other reasons, she expresses gratitude: “I have actually always felt quite fortunate, rather than feeling sorry for myself,” she says. “Rubella can do severe damage to a fetus far beyond what I experienced.” Wanagel went on to earn a master’s in special education at Syracuse University and taught in public schools for about a decade. She moved to the Olympic Peninsula in 1999, where

message that you can get it; you can do it. Therefore, I set my expectations high, and students always strive to reach that bar,” she says. Her impairment, Wanagel adds, teaches learners better communication in any situation. “It is not an option with me to mumble,” she says. “Students learn to speak face-to-face and enunciate clearly, which is a great skill to take into the world.”
‘Brings me sheer joy’ Lest Wanagel seem like too tough a taskmaster, she turns to another of her loves: music, played on the guitar. She can’t understand lyrics, can’t enjoy listening to an orchestra — but Celtic and other folk music, especially Joni Mitchell’s, send her. “Playing the guitar just brings me sheer joy. . . . I can’t fully explain why. There is some-
thing about having the ability to create intricate and beautiful music with heart-catching melodies,” she says. Wanagel recently has returned to teaching guitar, after a hiatus. “I used to give lessons here in Port Angeles; all kinds of people with all levels of natural ability came to me, some with obstacles they had to overcome to play guitar. But no matter what someone has to overcome, I can always say — from the heart — ‘You can do it. I do.’ “And they believe me. It gives them hope. They know that I have one of the worst obstacles you can have for playing a musical instrument, yet I persevere and love it just the same.” This applies to tutoring as well, Wanagel adds. “Say, for example, someone has a learning disability. That shouldn’t stop her from doing what she wants to do, like my hearing doesn’t
stop me from being a musician,” she says. At the same time, this teacher loves math — though she realizes not all of her students share the feeling. So Wanagel focuses on confidencebuilding. “It brings me great joy to watch students learn to independently use the virtual ‘tool belt’ of strategies that I help them develop. I teach a variety,” she says, so like a carpenter building a house, the learner will know how to choose the right tool for the given situation. “With adult students,” she adds, “I love watching their lifelong fear of math dissipate.” Wanagel also tutors in reading and writing, and along with those who are looking to catch up, she has students who come for enrichment and challenge. She teaches home-schooled kids, too. Turn

Somehow they seem to connect.” Wanagel has now sung and played, to good response, at both the Wednesday gathering at The Buzz and the Thursday night open mic at the Cracked Bean coffeehouse on DelGuzzi Drive off U.S. Highway 101 in Port Angeles. Yet she is no Pollyanna about deafness. She wonders constantly about what she’s missing. “I love the outdoors; love the mountains; love the trees; love rivers,” she says. “But I cannot hear nature sounds at all. There are no beautiful sounds in nature as far as I can hear, even though I know full well the truth is the exact opposite.” The lack of aural pleasure does not stop her, though, from enjoying a run or a mountain-bike ride through the woods — and feeling gratitude for the experience.
Wanagel says the North Olympic Peninsula, “beyond a shadow of a doubt,” is home. And to do her part to help others enjoy its natural wonders, she’s a member of the Thursday Trail Crew, a volunteer team working on the Olympic Discovery Trail’s Adventure Route west of Port Angeles. It’s another job she values, in addition to the one she does for a living. “Having access to our local forests and [Olympic] National Park and National Forest through trails for running, biking and/or hiking,” she says, “is something for which I never stop feeling grateful.”
