Why do we allow our pets to sleep with us in bed? Could it be . . . unconditional love?

Masters of the bedroom By Bob Morris

very night for the past year, Kathy Ruttenberg has been taking a bath, putting on pajamas, turning on CNN and getting into bed with a little pig named Trixie. “She’s a great cuddler if you lie still,” said Ruttenberg, a 53-year-old artist who lives near Woodstock, N.Y. “But if you’re restless, she gets annoyed, and her hooves are very sharp.” Ruttenberg has the black-and-blue marks to show for it. Still, of all the animals she has in her bed (there are also two kittens and three terriers, to be precise), Trixie, a 16-pound Vietnamese potbellied pig, is her favorite because of the way she spoons. “I have an Angora rabbit, too,” Ruttenberg said. “But he’s on the floor running around because

the other animals don’t allow him up. We have a hierarchy in our bedroom.” Ruttenberg’s habit of sleeping with pets mirrors that of Paris Hilton, who has slept with a pig — of the four-legged variety — and was once bitten at her home at 3 a.m. by a kinkajou, a tiny raccoon-related creature. Keeping that sort of menagerie may be unusual, but the habit of allowing animals in bed is not. Figures vary, but according to a recent study published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 14 percent to 62 percent of the 165 million dogs and cats in this country sleep in bed with humans, with other surveys skewing higher.

Police, two other departments OK’d for Facebook pages By Tom Callis

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Facebook users will soon be able to “fan” three city of Port Angeles departments. After the City Council adopted a social media policy this week, the Police Department, Economic and Community Development Department and Recreation Division have been given the go-ahead to start their own Facebook pages to better communicate with Port Angeles’ Internet-savvy residents. Deputy Chief Brian Smith, who is setting up the page for the Police Department, said he should have it launched next week. The police will use the page to post alerts and news releases, he said. No comments will be allowed. “We don’t have time to maintain postings,” Smith said. “What I want them [Facebook users] to do is be able to find us,” he added.

Major projects The Economic and Community Development Department will use a page to post information about major projects, such as the waterfront development plan, said assistant planner Roberta Korcz. Korcz said it hasn’t been determined when that page will be launched or whether comments will be allowed. “We haven’t developed a plan of action yet in our department,” she said. Richard Bonine, recreation services manager, said it’s also unknown when his division’s page will be made. City Manager Kent Myers told the City Council that the city may expand its Facebook presence after six months. Port Angeles is not the first public agency on the North Olympic Peninsula to embrace social media. There are Facebook “fan” pages for Clallam County, the Clallam County Courthouse, Clallam County parks, the Clallam County Public Utility District, the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office and the Clallam County Auditor’s Office.

Newsmakers Celebrity scoop ■ By The Associated Press

Leon: Love Madonna, but no acting tips CARLOS LEON MAY have a close relationship with Madonna, but he has no plans to ask her for acting tips. When asked about the notion, Leon told AP Entertainment: “God no. Career tips, yes, but Leon never acting tips.” Leon made the comments while promoting the romantic comedy, “Immigration Tango,” about two couples arranging fake marriages to get green cards. He and Madonna have a daughter, Lourdes, together. Leon said the superstar is supportive of everything he does, saying she “comes to the theater when I do theater.” While they remain great friends, Leon said it’s not easy having a child with such a prominent celebrity. As he puts it: “I can find a cure for AIDS and every disease possible, and I’ll still be associated with Madonna. And that’s OK.”

1936 (75 years ago) The funeral establishment at 115 W. Fourth St. in Port Angeles has changed ownership. The former Lyden Funeral Home was acquired by partners T.C. McDonald and Roy W. Schumacher, the latter of Sequim, and will now be known as McDonald Funeral Home. McDonald had been manager of Lyden Funeral Home for about a year.

1961 (50 years ago) Members of the Port Angeles City Council and School Board tentatively agreed that the site of the city’s new indoor swimming pool will be at the corner of

Fifth and Chase streets. Final decision depends on approval of the site by the city’s architects and test borings by engineers to determine soil quality. It was noted that the school district is planning a central service building on Fourth Street near the northwest corner of the proposed pool property.

1986 (25 years ago) Port Angeles City Council members will consider term limits for those serving on appointive boards and commissions. Council members already are subject to term limits, passed by a 67 percent majority of voters last year.

9-city Medicare bust nets 100-plus arrests By Kelli Kennedy

The Associated Press

MIAMI — Federal authorities charged more than 100 doctors, nurses and physical therapists in nine cities with Medicare fraud Thursday, part of a massive nationwide bust that snared more suspects than any other in history. More than 700 law enforcement agents fanned out to arrest dozens of people accused of illegally billing Medicare more than $225 million. The arrests are the latest in a string of major busts in the past two years as authorities have struggled to pare the fraud that’s believed to cost the government between $60 billion and $90 billion each year. Stopping Medicare’s budget from hemorrhaging that money will be key to paying for President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Attorney General Eric Holder partnered in 2009 to allocate more money and manpower in fraud hot spots. Thursday’s indictments were

for suspects in Miami, Los Angeles, Dallas, Houston, Detroit, Chicago, Brooklyn, Tampa, Fla., and Baton Rouge, La. A podiatrist performing partial toenail removals was among 21 indicted in Detroit. Dr. Errol Sherman is accused of billing Medicare about $700,000 for the costly and unnecessary procedures, which authorities said amounted to little more than toenail clippings.

Toenail tally The podiatrist billed Medicare for 20 nail removals on three toes of one patient, according to the indictment. He charged Medicare about $110 for each procedure. A message could not be left at Sherman’s office Thursday. A Brooklyn, N.Y., proctologist was charged with billing $6.5 million for hemorrhoid removals, most of which he never performed. Dr. Boris Sachakov claimed he performed 10 hemorrhoid removals on one patient, which authorities said is not possible. An employee who answered at Sachakov’s office declined comment Thursday. Sachakov had been arrested

last year on charges related to a separate scam. Sachakov denied the charges. Authorities also busted three physical therapy clinics in Brooklyn run by an organized network of Russian immigrants accused of paying recruiters to find elderly patients so they could bill for nearly $57 million in physical therapy that amounted to little more than back rubs, according to the indictment. In Miami, two doctors and several nurses from ABC Home Health Care Inc. were charged with swindling $25 million by writing fake prescriptions recommending nurses and other expensive aids to treat homebound patients, authorities said. The services were never provided. A message left Thursday was not immediately returned. As Medicare has expanded to one of the largest payer systems in the world, the agency has struggled to weed out crooks. Sebelius has promised more decisive action on the front end, by vigorously screening providers and stopping payment to suspicious ones, under greater authority granted by the Affordable Care Act.

Briefly: World Five protesters killed; Bahrain locked down MANAMA, Bahrain — Bahrain’s leaders banned public gatherings and sent tanks into the streets Thursday, intensifying a crackdown that killed five anti-government protesters and wounded more than 200. Bahrain’s streets were mostly empty after the bloody clampdown on political unrest in the wake of uprisings that toppled leaders in Egypt and Tunisia. Bahrain is a key part of Washington’s military counterbalance to Iran by hosting the U.S. Navy’s 5th Fleet. While part of the recent revolt in the Arab world, the underlying tensions in Bahrain are decades old and pit the majority Shiites against the Sunni elite. Bahrain’s rulers and their Arab allies depict any sign of unrest among their Shiite populations as a move by neighboring Shiite-majority Iran to expand its clout in the region. After allowing several days of rallies in the capital of Manama by disaffected Shiites, the island nation’s Sunni rulers unleashed riot police who stormed a protest encampment in Pearl Square before dawn, firing tear gas, beating demonstrators or blasting them with shotgun sprays of birdshot.

Protesters shot in Iraq SULAIMANIYAH, Iraq — Kurdish security guards opened fire Thursday on a crowd of protesters calling for political

reforms in northern Iraq, killing at least two people, officials said, showing even war-weary Iraq cannot escape the unrest roiling the Middle East. The demonstration in Sulaimaniyah was the most violent in a wave of protests that extended to the southern cities of Kut, Nasir and Basra. The hundreds of Kurdish protesters in the northern city of Sulaimaniyah on Thursday demanded political reforms from the regional government in the semiautonomous territory.

West Bank field trip JERUSALEM — At a time when peace talks with the Palestinians are stalled over Jewish settlements, the Israeli government plans to send schoolchildren on field trips to a disputed holy site in one of the West Bank’s most volatile flash points. Education Minister Gideon Saar said the visits to Hebron, the traditional burial site of the biblical patriarch Abraham and home to some of Israel’s most radical settlers, are part of a plan to acquaint Israeli youngsters with their heritage. Palestinian and Israeli critics both call it an exercise in indoctrination that will ignore the thousands of dispossessed Palestinians living nearby. “Palestinian children in Hebron are forbidden to walk on the street [leading to the tomb compound] and visit the area — but Israeli schoolchildren can? It’s incitement against the Palestinians,” said Issa Amro, a Palestinian activist in Hebron. The visits are set to begin next year on a trial basis. The Associated Press

Wis. Dems go AWOL to keep anti-union bill from advancing By Scott Bauer

The Associated Press

MADISON, Wis. — A group of Democratic Wisconsin lawmakers blocked passage of a sweeping anti-union bill Thursday, refusing to show up for a vote and then abruptly leaving the state in an effort to force Republicans to the negotiating table. As ever-growing throngs of protesters filled the Capitol for a third day, the 14 Democrats disappeared around noon, just as the Senate was about to begin debating the measure, which would end a half-century of collective bargaining rights for most public employees. Hours later, one member of the group told The Associated Press that they had left Wisconsin. “The plan is to try and slow this down because it’s an extreme piece of legislation that’s tearing this state apart,” Sen. Jon Erpenbach said in a telephone interview. Democrats hoped Republican

Quick Read

Gov. Scott Walker and GOP lawmakers would consider revisions to the bill. Walker, who took office just last month, urged the group to return and called the boycott a “stunt.” The governor predicted the group would come back in a day or two after realizing “they’re elected to do a job.”

Governor stands firm Walker said Democrats could still offer amendments to change the bill, but he vowed not to concede on his plan to end most collective bargaining rights. With 19 seats, Republicans hold a majority in the 33-member Senate, but they are one vote short of the number needed to conduct business. So the GOP needs at least one Democrat to be present before any voting can take place. Once the measure is brought to the floor, it needs 17 votes to pass.

As Republicans tried to begin Senate business Thursday, observers in the gallery screamed “Freedom! Democracy! Unions!” Opponents cheered when a legislative leader announced there were not enough senators present to proceed. The drama in Wisconsin unfolded in a jam-packed Capitol. Madison police and the state Department of Administration estimated the crowd at 25,000 protesters, the largest number yet. Hundreds of teachers joined the protest by calling in sick, forcing a number of school districts to cancel classes. Thousands more people, many of them students from the nearby University of Wisconsin, slept in the rotunda for a second night. The proposal marks a dramatic shift for Wisconsin, which passed a comprehensive collective bargaining law in 1959 and was the birthplace of the national union representing all nonfederal public employees.

OMC welcomes new health care providers By Rob Ollikainen

Since he started Dec. 1, Jones has streamlined the center’s inpatient psychiatric consultation service. But for the most part, Jones said, he has pulled his foot off the accelerator “because you never want to fix what isn’t broken.” “There’s a lot of things about the provision of mental health care in this community that’s not broken,” Jones said. OMC helped recruit Jones to the Peninsula Community Mental Health Center. “It obvious to us at this point that he will be a valuable contributor to this community,” said Peter Casey, director of the Peninsula Community Mental Health Center, which is at 118 E. Eighth St., Port Angeles.

PORT ANGELES — Olympic Medical Center has officially welcomed five new health care providers. Dr. Josh Jones, a psychiatrist, and physician’s assistants Bernadette Gonsalves, Rebecca Sorg, Travis Babcock and Patricia Christiansen — all of whom joined OMC in 2010 — were welcomed during a hospital commissioners meeting in Linkletter Hall in the basement of the Port Angeles medical center. Jones is a board-certified general and forensic psychiatrist at Peninsula Community Mental Health Center, which has a partnership with OMC. Jones spent the past four years in private practice in Rochester, N.Y. He graduated from the University of Washington School of Medicine and completed his undergraduate work at the University of Puget Sound. “I was born in White Salmon and raised in Kelso,” Jones said proudly.

Hospital upgrades with three new ventilators Board eyes financial challenges By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Olympic Medical Center replaced its decade-old ventilator line with three new machines that have carbon dioxide-monitoring technology. The seven commissioners approved the $95,850 purchase during Wednesday night’s board meeting in Linkletter Hall. The five ventilators being used now were deployed in 2001, and the manufacturer will stop making parts at the end of this year. “It is time to move on,” said Dr. Scott Kennedy, OMC’s chief medical officer. Pulmonologists and respiratory therapists at OMC recommended the

Servo-I ventilators the board approved by a unanimous vote. “Our goal is to put in place the three new ventilators, these Servo-Is, in the CCU [critical care unit] here at OMC by this April,” Kennedy said. The total cost exceeded the budgeted $90,741 because of $4,800 for software for carbon dioxide monitoring, Kennedy said. Two additions

‘Remarkable briefs’ Commissioner John Nutter, chairman of the Budget and Audit Committee, said OMC staff has “done a remarkable job keeping the ones we have going for 10 years.” “But I think it’s time to move on and upgrade,” Nutter added.

Commissioner Jim Cammack asked Kennedy if the three new ventilators would satisfy the day-to-day needs of the hospital. “We can probably count on one hand the number of times in a year that we would need more than three ventilators,” Kennedy said. “That would be a very unusual situation.” The old ventilators will be kept in reserve, however, in case they are needed.

In other board action, commissioners approved an $89,000 design contract for additional office space at the Sequim medical services building and an $81,615 design contract to expand the OMC primary care clinic at Eighth and Cherry streets in Port Angeles. Hospital officials were

briefed on the yearly financial statement audit, which was prepared by the accounting firm Moss Adams LLC. “There’s no uncorrected adjustments in 2010,” said Eric Nicholson, a partner at Moss Adams. “The books were ready. We audited those numbers. We agreed with those numbers. We believe that your numbers were sound.” Nicholson said OMC’s financial outlook mirrors other hospital districts struggling with lower patient volumes and higher uncompensated care. Uncompensated care, defined as charity care or bad debt, was $5.4 million in 2006 compared with $8.5 million in 2010, Nicholson said.

than a month later. Should Irvin be hired, Burkett said, he would be able to start immediately, but it would create an opening for an associate planner — Irvin’s position before he temporarily moved up to run the city Planning Department. The new director, whoever he or she might be, has a lot to do, Burkett said. “Seriously, it’s a high priority in terms of council goals,” he said, involving the update of the city’s comprehensive plan and implementation of the downtown plan. As part of the downtown plan study and development process, Burkett, Irvin, City Council members and the Planning Commission will tour Poulsbo and Bainbridge Island on Friday, Feb. 25. The visit will involve a walking tour to Poulsbo Place, which is a residential neighborhood designed to

capture the traditional historic charm of downtown Poulsbo, and a “meet-andgreet” with Bainbridge planners.

Walking tour The Sequim contingent will take part in a walking tour of the Erickson Avenue Cottages, The Winslow mixed-use development and the Island Gateway project, including the art and children’s museums. Burkett said the city chose to visit the two municipalities in Kitsap County because they are of comparable size to Sequim. They also have downtown residential development such as that being discussed in the Sequim downtown planning process.

Eric Lewis briefed the commissioners on fiscal challenges facing OMC. “The state level is probably the most concerning of what’s going to happen to Olympic Medical Center’s reimbursement,” Lewis said. OMC was paid $1.8 million last year through a program called Certified Public Expenditure for Medicaid inpatient reimbursement. “We want to preserve it and maintain it,” Lewis said. “There is concern because the funds are limited. There’s a lot of uncertainty of whether this program will even continue. This is probably our No. 1 issue.”

Pets: Animals ‘keep us in the present tense’ Continued from A1 The reasons are welldocumented. First, touching, human or otherwise, raises levels of oxytocin in the body, creating feelings of contentment. And, of course, the comfort that an unconditionally loving animal provides in bed is an emotional balm, especially for the depressed, lonely or anxious. “Animals are uncomplicated and keep us in the present tense,” said Mark Doty, the author of a memoir called Dog Years, which chronicles the death of a lover: “When Wally could barely move, I saw him lifting his hand to reach over and pet Beau, our young retriever, who was curled up next to him. “He couldn’t even feed himself, but he had the strength and will to give comfort to a dog at his side. It was remarkable.”

Dangerous habit? It’s no surprise that pet owners like Doty seem unconcerned about the study published earlier this month by the CDC in which two California doctors warn that allowing pets to sleep in the bed can be dangerous and can spread zoonoses, pathogens that go from animals to people. According to Bruno Chomel, a professor at the University of California at Davis, and Ben Sun of the California Department of Public Health, the risks are rare but real. (See the sidebar.) They cite instances of fleas from cats transmitting

have not been researched. It’s also not good for babies. And there have been cases of animals spreading resistant strains of staph infections and other diseases by licking cuts and wounds after surgery, so it’s not recommended that pets be allowed in bed then.

Researchers warn against kissing pets The Associated Press

In an article for a scientific journal, a University of California at Davis veterinary professor writes that people who allow their pets to lick them, give them “kisses” — or sleep with them — are at risk for a variety of diseases known as zoonoses. The conditions can range from the mundane to the life-threatening. Bruno Chomel and his coauthor, Ben Sun, emphasize that pets provide many health benefits, including stress relief, and they stop short of recommending that people abstain from smooching their pooches. But in reviewing reports from several countries, they argue that such interactions carry some risk, particularly among infants and people whose immune systems have been weakened by disease, chemotherapy or other medicines. “The risk is not huge — but the trend is that more and more people are sharing their environments with pets, allowing them in their bubonic plague and fleas from dogs spreading chagas in South America, with symptoms of mild fever and fatigue. However, kicking pets out of bed isn’t likely to be an option for many people. First of all, it’s difficult to retrain animals once they have established a routine. Erica Lehrer and Richard Goldman of Houston learned that when they tried to keep their three cats out of the bedroom after installing an expensive black carpet.

beds, kissing them like crazy,” Chomel said in an interview. The popular notion that dog saliva is cleaner than human saliva is a real myth, and people need to realize “that a risk does exist” from bacteria that live in the mouths of felines and canines.

If you indulge . . . Those who do choose to share bed and lip space with animals can avoid disease transmission by hand-washing, tooth-brushing, regular veterinary care and good overall hygiene, Chomel said. “Certainly I am a pet lover, but my pets have never been in my bed,” said Chomel. As for doggy and kitty licks and kisses, he said, “You could do it, but I’m not sure your husband will want to kiss you after that.” In their article in this month’s edition of the journal Emerging Infectious Diseases, Chomel and Sun noted that pets are becoming increasingly popular in urban households and “have conquered our bedrooms.”

“They staged a protest: cried all night, pounded with their cat paws on the door,” said Lehrer, 52, a writer. After three sleepless nights, she said: “They won and moved back in. We bought a really good vacuum cleaner.”

Indoors vs. outdoors At least their cats are indoor animals. That means there is less risk of having mice and other critters deposited in

Among the bacterial, parasitic and viral conditions they may be bringing with them are plague, catscratch disease and staphylococcus infections, Chomel and Sun reported. The researchers reviewed literature about diseases transmitted from animals to humans. In Japan, a study found evidence of zoonoses in pet owners who kissed their animals regularly but not in those who abstained, according to the paper. Some of these bugs cause mild symptoms, but others can morph into daunting illnesses, such as meningitis. In the United States, the most common parasitic zoonoses associated with dogs are caused by hookworms and roundworms, which in humans can cause gastrointestinal symptoms, anemia and other conditions. Pasteurella multocida, an infection commonly caused by pet licks, can cause everything from mild respiratory symptoms to serious conditions including endocarditis.

the bed. Staying indoors, like most city cats do, also reduces the risk of fleas, ticks and other potential disease carriers. Which brings us to dogs. Could all that slush they walk through and bring into bed at this time of year be a risk to health as well as to housekeeping? “I’d say just wipe them down, and you’ll be fine,” said Lucy O’Byrne, a veterinarian at the West Village Veterinary Hospital in New York.

Leader of the pack But even if licking is risky, the risks might well be offset by the benefits, given the evidence suggesting that pets can increase longevity and boost the immune system. “If the dog starts licking the baby too much, we discourage it,” said Alexandra Horowitz, author of the best-selling Inside of a Dog and a psychology professor at Barnard, who sleeps with her toddler, husband and dog without worry. “But in general, if you’re a dog person, you live with dirt and other things that come in benign and less benign forms. “I think the health risks are overstated. I say that if it’s mutually agreeable, just as it is between two people, then sharing a bed with a dog is fine.” Even Cesar Millan, the hard-nosed dog trainer known for his TV series “The Dog Whisperer,” agrees, though he believes the dog should be invited up each night, just to show it who’s the real leader of the pack. “Then choose the portion of the bed where the dog sleeps,” he wrote in his book Cesar’s Way. “Sweet dreams.”

“As long as you have good flea and tick control and keep your pet healthy the way most people do, you don’t have to worry.” Chomel, author of the CDC study, doesn’t disagree. There is far more risk, he warned, with pet licks and kisses. If you have a wound or if your immune system is compromised, licking should be avoided. Meaning, don’t let the dog lick you — the hazards involved in the other way around

Also to be finished April 15 will be the paving and landscaping of Pope Marine Park. Then a bronze sculpture by artist Gerard Tsutakawa, Salish Sea Circle, will be installed at the corner of Water and Madison streets. Another aspect of the project will be the opening of the visitor center around March 5. The building, which once housed the police station, contains a meeting space as well as new public rest-

rooms that will replace the portable toilets now in use. Miller said the current plan is to have the restrooms accessible between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m., but those hours could expand over the summer. Twenty-four-hour access is possible, he said, but only if no vandalism occurs. “At the skate park, we said we’d leave it open as long as there was no graffiti; otherwise, we would shut it down,” he said.

difficult for permits to be challenged, she said. Staff had recommended the council waive the second reading of the ordinance and adopt it at the meeting. The council voted to continue the matter at its next meeting, March 1. Nathan West, city economic and community development director, told the council the proposed change is not meant to target the environmental council’s appeal. “They are not intended to reflect any appeal,” he said. West and City Attorney Bill Bloor said the proposed change is meant to follow the council’s desire to not handle appeals. “This ordinance tonight is one step in that process,” Bloor said. As a solution, the council has discussed hiring a hearings examiner. Bloor said that is still under consideration. He said the city is looking at eliminating the locallevel appeal of conditional-

use shoreline permits because, unlike other permits, the council’s decision has little weight. Even if the council sided with the appellants, the state Department of Ecology can still approve the permit, Bloor and Planning Manager Sue Roberds said. Roberds said that is unique to conditional-use permits.

Little process change Bloor said the city isn’t waiting for the environmental council’s appeal to be heard by the council before proposing the change because it doesn’t significantly change the process for appellants. “Because the decisionmaker here is really the Department of Ecology, people have more than ample process available in the shoreline hearings,” he said. “It doesn’t really start until we get to the final decision, which is the Department of Ecology. It would be an unnecessary delay.” The environmental

council filed the appeal on the basis that the city’s plan to use a large tank to temporarily store untreated sewage and stormwater doesn’t adequately fix the problem. The appeal challenges the permit and the “determination of nonsignificance,” which meant an environmental impact statement was not needed. The city expects slightly more than one overflow a year on average with the use of the nearly 5-milliongallon storage tank it purchased from Rayonier Inc. last November. Untreated effluent would travel to the tank along new sewer lines that would be placed through the industrial waterline. That will require construction along the shoreline, which is why a shoreline permit is needed. The environmental council has said the city should eliminate the problem at the source, which would involve separating stormwater from the city’s sewers.

The city has said that would be too expensive. Roberds said an environmental statement was not needed because public works staff had provided all of the necessary information during the environmental checklist process.

Staying on schedule Glenn Cutler, city public works and utilities director, said an appeal would have to be resolved before the summer so the city can seek bids for construction and stay on schedule. He said he did not seek to have the policy changed in order to dismiss the appeal, noting that an appeal to the Shoreline Hearings Board would also affect the project. Cutler said he was “not part of the discussions” regarding the proposed change.

Judge to rule on rock quarry appeal By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — A Clallam County Superior Court judge is considering arguments in a Land Use Petition Act review of a county commissioners May 2010 ruling that said a rock quarry above the Elwha River violates county code because it is in an erosion zone. Judge George L. Wood gave no indication of when he would make a ruling on the appeal brought forth by Little River Quarry owners Mike and Susan Shaw and George and Patricia Lane. “I’m going to spend a lot of time looking at all this,” Wood said after hearing the case Jan. 26. “I appreciate your arguments. They’re well-taken, and I’ll get to it as soon as I can.” County commissioners upheld a June 2009 ruling of Clallam County Hearing Examiner Pro Tem Lauren Erickson that said the quarry poses an erosion hazard area because it is on a slope greater than 40 percent and consists of unconsolidated rock. The Board of County Commissioners initially

dismissed the appeal, but Superior Court sent it back to the quasi-judicial board for a ruling. Superior Court was the next step on the appellate track. “Once the Superior Court rules on this, the case can be appealed to the State appellate court to be reviewed ‘de novo’ or anew, with no presumption of correctness or deference to the Superior Court ruling,” Clallam County Chief Civil Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Douglas Jensen wrote in an e-mail. “Judge Wood indicated at an earlier hearing that because he will be unavailable during a portion of February that a decision may not issue until March.” Erickson’s 2009 ruling upheld an earlier recommendation of the Clallam County Department of Community Development. A permit was granted to the quarry owners in 2007 under the Forest Practices Act to allow exploratory mining on the 40-acre parcel owned by the Shaws and Lanes off Olympic Hot Springs Road just outside the boundary of Olympic National Park. Attorneys for both sides presented complex legal

arguments on their interpretations of county code in the Jan. 26 hearing. Craig Miller, one of the attorneys representing the appellants, cited inconsistencies in the code. “Our key argument was that the county did not administer its ordinance as it is written,” Miller said after the hearing. “Our point is that it requires a site-specific determination based on the best available science.”

Critical areas law Jensen and Toby Thaler, the attorney who represents the Upper Elwha River Conservation Committee, a group of citizens who oppose the quarry, have argued that it falls under a critical areas ordinance. “The county alleged that appellants were asking the Court to interpret a portion of the County’s critical areas ordinance relating to ‘erosion hazard area’ to exclude their quarry, and for the Court to rely upon the interpretation of County code of appellants’ in so doing,” Jensen wrote. “Appellants had alleged that the examiner should have and the court is

allowed to determine what is the ‘best available science’ for this particular permit review and at this particular time regarding erosion hazard areas, in overruling the Department’s and Examiner’s interpretation of the regulations.” By contrast, the county said best-available science can be considered and applied only when drafting erosion hazard regulations, Jensen said. Furthermore, Jensen said, the appellant’s bestavailable-science approach was barred under the Growth Management Act and local regulations. “The county argued that the only real issue before the court was whether this site met the county’s criteria for designation as an erosion hazard area,” Jensen wrote. The Land Use Petition Act review is a closed-record appeal, meaning no new evidence or information can be considered. The state Department of Natural Resources informed the Shaws and Lanes in Keith Thorpe/Peninsula Daily News March 2008 that they could no longer operate the approval in 2007 and 2008.

PT Food Co-op gives $10,815 to projects Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — The Food Co-op in Port Townsend has donated $10,815.50 to support Jefferson County Farm to School Coalition projects, including the J.C. School Gardens project. Jefferson County Farm to Schools Coalition is a community-based group working to improve the nutritional value of food served in Jefferson County schools. During the month of January, shoppers at the Food Co-op were asked to “buy an apple” from the donation tree at the front entrance to the store. Paper apples with dollar amounts ranging from $1 to $500 hung from a dwarf cherry tree donated by Gardens at Four Corners in Port Townsend. The fundraiser asked shoppers to support the J.C. Gardens project, which recently lost grant funding.

There are active school garden projects at Grant Street Elementary School and Quilcene School. The fundraising effort also generated other individual donations made directly to the J.C. Farm to School Coalition from owners of the Food Co-op ranging from $300 to $500 dollars.

Of the total donation, $815.50 has been earmarked for supporting the school gardens project while the remaining $10,000 of the donation was made available to support the broader mission of the Jefferson County Farm to Schools Coalition.

Garden projects

In addition to the donation of money, the Food Co-op has also offered to help the school district purchase directly from local farms more easily by allowing growers to leave goods for the school cafeteria at the store when they deliver product. The Food Co-op has also offered free delivery of the local farm products to the school kitchens and is willing to donate time to help prepare local farm products in its commercial kitchen due to the limited food preparation space at the school kitchens.

“We are fortunate to have active garden projects in Jefferson County,” said Food Co-op Outreach/Education Manager Brwyn Griffin. “When the funding for the school gardens was lost, a program with two years of success was at risk of being lost. “At the Food Co-op, where we have over 7,000 owners, we saw an opportunity to support the school district through supporting the J.C. Farm to School Coalition,” Griffin said.

Police officer benefits bill advances Panel OKs Hargrove legislation

benefits to the families of police officers who die of heart attacks made its first movement through the Legislature on Thursday. The bill is sponsored by Sen. Jim Hargrove, D-Hoquiam, one of the legislators representing the Peninsula Daily News North Olympic Peninsula news services in Olympia. It would deem the death OLYMPIA — A state Senate bill that would give of a police officer from heart

attack or stroke workrelated for insurance purposes if it occurred within 24 hours of participating in certain activities. The legislation was voted out of the Senate Labor, Commerce and Consumer Protection Committee on Thursday. The bill will need to pass out of two more committees to reach the Senate floor.

Its companion bill in the House passed out of its first committee earlier this month.

Amendments added The Senate committee added amendments to the bill before it was approved: n  “Heart problem” was substituted for “heart attack,” which broadens the

definition for a qualifying heart-related claim for survivor benefits. The House version of the bill already includes this amendment. n  A list of health factors that employers can use to rebut heart or strokerelated claims for police officers was added. The factors include the use of tobacco and evidence

of being overweight. The bills were prompted by an incident last year in which a Federal Way police officer died of a heart attack while guarding a crime scene and his family was denied survivor benefits by the state Department of Labor and Industry. Both bills would also add strokes as an occupational disease for firefighters.

Senate mulls fine for owners who tether dogs Peninsula Daily News news services

OLYMPIA — Keeping a dog chained up in unsafe conditions could get the owner fined under a proposed state law being considered by the state Senate. Supporters told the Senate Judiciary Committee this week that chained or tethered dogs are more likely to turn mean and are sometimes deliberately mistreated so they’ll be angry watchdogs at drug or gang houses. Opponents argued existing law already protects dogs from unsafe conditions, whether they are chained or running free. Most dog bites, and all recent deaths caused by dog attacks, occurred with dogs that weren’t chained, they said. The Senate Judiciary Committee isn’t quite ready to roll over on the issue. It wants some work on language for Senate Bill 5649, which would make it a misdemeanor to repeatedly keep a dog outside on a chain or tether without adequate food, water and shelter; in severe weather; or in other unsafe or unsanitary conditions. Owners would first get warnings and information about safer practices, then a civil infraction ticket, then a misdemeanor charge for repeat violations. “Tethering is connected to neglect,” said Lewis County Deputy Prosecutor Deborah Eurich, who told the panel it is already illegal in some states.

Hargrove responds That prompted an objection from Sen. Jim Hargrove, D-Hoquiam. Hargrove represents Jefferson and Clallam counties and part of Grays Harbor County along with state Reps. Kevin Van De Wege and Steve Tharinger, both D-Sequim. Hargrove said he lives in

the country and doesn’t want his dogs to run off and get hit by a car. “I think it’s cruel to keep a dog in the house,” said Hargrove. “Sometimes, tethering appropriately is way more freedom than keeping them in the kennel.” Some panel members had questions about how the bill would apply. Sen. Cheryl Pflug, R-Maple Valley, said she was worried about overgeneralizing. “We’re trying to legislate common sense and compassion — it’s extraordinarily difficult to write that into statute,” she said. Members of the committee said they are concerned about animal cruelty and related personal experiences with dogs, both chained and unchained. That led to the following joking exchange between Chairman Adam Kline, D-Seattle, and Hargrove about encountering chained dogs on the campaign trail: Kline: More than once, I’ve observed a dog on a chain running to the end of the chain and being jerked off by it. Hargrove: It’s obviously a conservative. Kline: We can talk about the authoritarian nature of people who deal with dogs that way and how dogs are sometimes an extension of people. Hargrove: You’re going down the wrong path. Kline: I can’t help it. My dog’s a border collie, and he’s smarter than I am. Hargrove: You got that on tape, too. Kline: It’s true. Hargrove: Maybe he should run for the Senate?

State Rep. Laurie Jinkins, D-Tacoma, is a public health administrator, and she doesn’t like the candy bars, chips and sodas she sees on sale in the Capitol Dome Deli. She has introduced a bill that would require state agencies to improve the nutritional value of food sold to state employees and in state institutions. For example, sodas and sugary drinks could amount to no more than one-fifth the drinks sold by vendors or in vending machines. The bill also would encourage consumption of fat-free or low-fat dairy products and lean meats. Limits would be placed on fried foods and foods with added sugar.

Court: Siblings can’t file death claims The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — The adoptive siblings of a 7-year-old boy who died of starvation in the care of his adoptive mother can’t sue for wrongful death, the Washington state Supreme Court ruled Thursday. The estate of Tyler DeLeon had filed wrongfuldeath claims against the boy’s primary care physician and his psychiatrist and also alleged they were aware of the boy’s injuries but failed to report them under the state’s mandatory reporting law. The high court affirmed a Spokane County Superior Court decision to dismiss a

portion of the case against Dr. David Fregeau, the Rockwood Clinic and psychiatrist Sandra BremnerDexter. But the Supreme Court said the doctors could be sued for failing to report the abuse. The state Department of Social and Health Services and three employees also were sued, but the agency separately agreed to pay more than $6 million to Tyler’s estate and other foster children in a 2008 settlement.

turned 7. His adoptive mother, Carole DeLeon, was sentenced to six years in prison after entering a plea to criminally mistreating Tyler and another boy in her care. She was released last year after serving half of her sentence. The lawsuit on behalf of the boy and his adoptive siblings cites an extensive history of abuse complaints and health concerns regarding foster children at the DeLeon home, including broken bones, knocked-out teeth and withholding of food and water. 28 pounds at age 7 Tyler’s adoptive siblings Tyler weighed only 28 are considered second-tier pounds when he died beneficiaries under the Jan. 13, 2005, the day he state’s wrongful-death law,

which means they can recover damages under that law only if they were dependent upon him for support. Their lawsuit against the doctors argued that they did depend upon him because DSHS provided $717 a month in adoption support to Carole DeLeon for Tyler.

Not dependent The doctors argued, and the Supreme Court agreed, that Tyler’s estate and his adoptive siblings were not financially dependent upon him. The high court said “DSHS provided separate payments to Carole DeLeon

to supplement her support of other children in her home.” “I knew that we had a tough case to make, but I thought it was worth the effort since I think not compensating Tyler or Tyler’s estate for what he suffered through is just wrong,” said Allen M. Ressler, a Seattle attorney representing the plaintiffs. “The legislation as written right now makes no sense to me.” Justice Gerry L. Alexander concurred with the majority opinion, signed by eight justices, on the issue of whether the siblings were qualified to bring wrongful-death claims.

But he dissented with his colleagues on whether the doctors could be sued for failing to report child abuse or neglect.

Civil remedy The majority said the mandatory reporting law doesn’t explicitly provide a civil remedy against a practitioner who fails to report suspected abuse but said it was implied as a means of enforcing the reporting duty. Alexander said the conclusion contradicts what the Legislature intended, which was to make it a misdemeanor crime to not report child abuse.

State budget must undergo ‘therapy’ MOVEMENT HURTS, BUT holding still doesn’t make anything better. That’s why Martha M. I’m seeing Lynda William- Ireland son of Strait Occupational and Hand Therapy in Port Angeles twice a week, plus executing an assigned series of movements thrice daily, preceded by heat and followed by ice. (I broke my left arm and right wrist when my horse, Gypsy Rose, slipped and fell Dec. 28.) Restoring healing limbs isn’t a “feel-good” activity, but physical therapy is the key to recovery after an injury. I slurred the word “physical” and got teased Wednesday at the Shelter Providers Network meeting I was conducting. Some folks thought I said “fiscal.” Actually, “fiscal therapy” sounds like a needed prescription for national, state and local governments that are all awash with red ink, as well as for individuals,

families and businesses with unbalanced balance sheets. Achieving fiscal recovery is possible only by undertaking carefully targeted, albeit uncomfortable, economic changes. Good governmental fiscal therapy cuts “feel-good” programs that produce no meaningful results, while identifying and preserving proven solutions. Like physical therapy, that’s hard work, especially when some ideas to cut spending and raise revenue would actually generate bigger deficits. Getting the state out of the business of selling liquor, as proposed by two initiatives that were defeated last November, is an example of a potentially very expensive attempt to increase revenue. Revenue would go up only if more people bought and drank more alcohol. Increasing availability of alcohol leads to more consumption by the 20 percent of the population who are heavy drinkers (80 percent of Americans are non-drinkers or very light drinkers). Privatization still has its advocates, although research evidence increasingly shows limited locations, hours and days of sale curb

underage drinking, drunken driving and other adverse social consequences, which benefits public health and safety. (See Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s policy guide at Defunding chronically underfunded offender re-entry services, despite a strong record of deterring returns to criminal activity, is an example of a spending cut that costs far more than it saves. Routinely discharging people from prison directly into homelessness makes parole supervision most difficult and greatly increases the likelihood of the person returning to the companions and activities that led to criminal activity, with all its attendant costs in dollars and community safety. Fiscal therapy means facing reality. “There is no money,” says Sen. Jim Hargrove, D-Hoquiam, who represents District 24, consisting of Clallam and Jefferson counties and part of Grays Harbor County, along with Reps. Kevin Van De Wege and Steve Tharinger, both Sequim Democrats. “When you don’t have much money,” responds my boss, Kathy Wahto, executive director of

Peninsula Voices

Serenity House of Clallam County, “you have to invest in solutions that are proven to work.” “(Legislators) want to hear solutions, not just problems,” said Pam Tietz, executive director of the Peninsula Housing Authority, which serves Clallam and Jefferson counties. On the plus side, the search for dollars and savings is inspiring long-needed reforms, such as SB 5405, a ferry system personnel and administration efficiency bill co-sponsored by Hargrove. Less therapeutic are broad-ax budget cuts, such as those that stripped all general fund dollars from homeless and housing programs. The Housing Trust Fund and Home Security Fund, which rely on document recording fees, are now the sole support for such services. This revenue is referred to as “Hargrove money,” because the veteran state senator led the move to establish document recording fees to fund relevant services. However, the currently depressed real estate market produces substantially less revenue. Additionally, about half the

recording fee will sunset in mid-2013 if not extended. District 24’s delegation unanimously supports compromise legislation to extend the fee, probably until 2019. Additionally, Van De Wege and Tharinger co-sponsored HB 1768 to also collect the fee when recording secondary mortgage sales. Despite typically making $10,000 or more per mortgage resale, banking interests object to contributing to housing assistance for very low-income and homeless people.

Everett Koop, has said: “Fluoridation is the single most important commitment that a community can make to oral health of its citizens.” This fact is supported by the Centers for Disease Control, American Medical Association, American Dental Association, National Institutes of Health, American Academy of Asthma, Allergy and Immunology,

our own local doctors and dentists, etc., etc. The support for fluoridation by professional organizations and medical professionals is based on scientific data that has been collected and reviewed by many health, research and academic institutions. National epidemiological surveys on the efficacy of fluoridated water

showed a significant reduction of cavities in children. Many of the children were cavity-free in their permanent teeth when raised in fluoridated communities. With the reduction in health care dollars — medical and dental — it is a significant advantage to all the people of our community to receive the health benefits that fluoridated

water can provide. A disturbing amount of misinformation, half-truths and lies are being spread throughout our community about fluoridated water. For example, the National Research Council did not find an association between fluoridated drinking water and cancer in 50 human studies and six animal studies. Yet, a false connection continues to be stated by a misguided few. The facts clearly prove that fluoridation works to the benefit for all of us and especially for our children. I am grateful to the Port Angeles City Council that we are finally able to raise our children in a community with fluoridated water. May we have the benefit of more foresighted leaders such as these in the future.

In owl clash, let Nature be the judge By Matthew Randazzo V AS THE FINAL curtain call of the Northern spotted owl continues, so does the controversy that has accompanied its decline like an out-of-tune funeral dirge. In the 1990s, countless loggers lost their livelihoods when the feds froze the timber industry in the Randazzo forest habitats deemed critical to the spotted owl’s survival. At the Northwest Raptor & Wildlife Center, we had the product of their outrage delivered to us swaddled in bloodstained blankets: innocent owls shot, nailed to signs and lynched from trees.

perhaps the most intelligent, emotionally sophisticated American raptor. They enjoy human company and comprehend the revolutionary idea that some humans mean to help them instead of eat them. Barred owls are wise enough to cooperate as veterinarians remove damaged feathers or floss broken beaks. Of the Ambassador Animals that meet the public on behalf of the Raptor Center, only Juliet, the barred owl, will voluntarily step down from her perch onto a handler’s glove. When Juliet gets tired after hours meeting hyperactive schoolchildren, she does not complain — she simply snuggles onto her handler’s shoulder for a nap. She is like a winged lap cat. The idea of having barred owls like Juliet delivered to the Center, wheezing and crying from the searing agony of bullet wounds, is an unthinkable horror.

Real-life play shines on Afghan war OUR 3,413th DAY at war in Afghanistan seemed like a good day to learn about Afghanistan. The longest stretch of war Maureen in American history has Dowd merited the shortest attention span. I didn’t go to Kabul on the secretary of defense’s Doomsday plane this time. I signed up with the Pentagon for time travel, flying through history watching a remarkable seven-hour marathon of a 12-play series called “The Great Game.” The plays use real and fictional characters, actual transcripts and imagined scenes, to trace the trellis of foreign involvement in Afghanistan from 1842 to the present. “Afghanistan,” one character notes, “has a very complicated relationship with time.” The Shakespeare Theatre donated space, and the British Council and Bob Woodruff Foundation underwrote costs so that the plays could have two performances in Washington, D.C., last Thursday and Friday. The Pentagon wanted to give the military and their families, including some who had served in Afghanistan and some who may, a chance to learn how that benighted territory earned the nickname “graveyard of empires.” “The question is,” says an American staff officer in the play, “are we on our ninth year in Afghanistan, or are we on our first year for the ninth time?” And a Russian commander notes: “It seems however many battles we win on the ground, we just recruit more fighters for the other side.” With the surge, are we now beating the Taliban, as a U.S. commander in the Helmand Province asserted this week,

or will we bargain with the Taliban and then decamp like the bowed British and Russians, confused about how the Stone Age socked modernity? “I’ve been asked ‘Why are you doing this? Aren’t these plays going to be anti-war?’ ” Doug Wilson, the assistant secretary of defense for public affairs, told me at intermission on Thursday. “I don’t see that at all. “If most Americans had seen these, it would help them understand, warts and all, what a hugely complex place this is. “It would also answer the question ‘Why isn’t it going to be finished next week?’ ” Nicolas Kent of the Tricycle Theatre in London, co-director of “The Great Game,” said the plays are not “agitprop.” When he commissioned them, he felt that the allies “absolutely” should not be in Afghanistan. “But the more I’ve gone into the history and talked to Afghans,” he said, “I personally think we should be there.” Derek Blumke, the co-founder of Student Veterans of America who served in Afghanistan, said the play taught him a lot about the thicket of tribes, feuds and foreign invasions. “I was at the bazaar, haggling with a local about a British bayonet with an 1842 date stamped on it,” the 30-year-old Air Force vet recalled. “I thought it was the coolest thing, but I couldn’t understand why there was a British bayonet in Afghanistan.” Adm. Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has issued a revised military strategy looking beyond Afghanistan and Iraq to more modern fighting fields — outer space, cyberspace and the Asia-Pacific region. Whereas Dick Cheney and the neocons once thought we could become a hyperpower, disdaining anything multilateral and stifling emerging powers, Admiral Mullen sketches a fresh strategy he calls “multinodal” for an era of shifting alliances and emerging

powers. The series begins in 1842 at the grisly scene where 16,000 British and Indian Army soldiers, wives and servants get killed as they try to retreat through the snowy mountains of Jalalabad. “Every conflict in the world today has its origin in the imagination of British map drawers,” a character dryly notes. The action goes from the abdication of the glamorous king and queen in 1929 through the Communist regime when Afghan women were wearing miniskirts in Kabul, through the CIA financing of the mujahedeen to defeat the Soviets, through Taliban rule with the assistance of Pakistan’s intelligence agency, through America’s invasion and occupation. James Lobb, a 36-year-old Marine captain based at Joint Forces Command in Suffolk, Va., who spent seven months in Afghanistan in 2004, read about the special performances and tracked down Nicolas Kent to score some tickets. He called it a cautionary tale about taking care before jumping into foreign endeavors. He was struck by the comment of a CIA officer to a mujahedeen in the play. “I understand the difference between you and me,” the CIA guy says. “I know if you lose, I still have a home to go back to.” Lobb said that “every day these Afghan soldiers and police are fighting for their lives. They know the Taliban knows where their families are and can kill them. I don’t know how we bolster them if every day might not only be their last but the last day of their family.” Lobb sent Kent a bottle of whiskey to thank him for the tickets, and the history lesson. ________ Maureen Dowd is a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist for The New York Times.

Michelle O. presses her ‘Nanny’ agenda WHILE HER HUSBAND may have paid lip service to ending the abuse of science for “politics or ideology,” first lady Michelle Obama gave herself a super-sized waiver. Two of her showcase social engineering Michelle campaigns — Malkin tax preferences for breastpumping working mothers and expanded nutrition labels — are based on distorting or dismissing the prevailing public health literature. Just as the White House costumed Obamacare activists in white lab coats, the fashionable Mrs. O has cloaked her meddling anti-obesity crusade in medical fakery. Over the past year, the first lady has marshaled a taxpayersubsidized army of government lawyers, bureaucrats and consultants against the “national security threat” of childhood obesity. She has transformed the East Wing of the White House into Big Nanny’s new Central Command headquarters. The biggest threats to Mrs. Obama’s 70-point plan for national fitness: parental authority and sound science. As part of her “Let’s Move!” anniversary celebration this week, Mrs. Obama rolled out a new breastfeeding initiative because “kids who are breastfed longer have a lower tendency to be obese.” She made her assertion to an invitation-only group of handpicked reporters who were barred from asking questions about her scientific conclusions. It’s not healthy to challenge Super Nanny, you see. After the Internal Revenue Service carefully studied and rejected an advocacy push to treat nursing equipment as a taxdeductible medical expense last fall, the tax agency suddenly reversed itself in time for the first lady’s new public relations tour. The surgeon general has also issued a “Call to Action” to pressure private businesses to adopt

more nursing-friendly environments to combat childhood obesity, all while denying that government is intruding on personal decisions. “No mother should be made to feel guilty if she cannot or chooses not to breastfeed,” Surgeon General Regina Benjamin asserted, while laying an unmistakable guilt trip on moms and moms-to-be. So, what do studies on breastfeeding and babies’ weight actually say? Rebecca Goldin, Ph.D., research director of George Mason University’s Statistical Assessment Service, points out that the literature is inconclusive or demonstrates that the health advantages of bosom over bottle are short-lived: “Indeed, there is little evidence that using formula causes obesity. There is a correlation between formula use and obesity among babies and children . . . though this correlation is not consistent in all studies. “Some of these studies show a relationship in only some demographics and not others. Others show that the disadvantage of bottle-feeding and/or formula mostly goes away by the time a child is about 4 years old. “The result is that we cannot discover whether breastfeeding is correlated with obesity because infant formula or bottle feeding leads to subsequent overeating or disposition to being overweight, or whether those parents who breastfeed are also more likely to offer their children green beans instead of French fries. “Despite weak evidence, there is a lingering conviction that formula causes obesity among pediatricians and the press; if anything, the study about infants should make us reflect more carefully on this conclusion.” Alas, such nuance from Mrs. Obama and her unquestioning media water-carriers is scarcer than tofu at Taco Bell. Don’t get me wrong. As a proud mom who breastfed both of her babies, I’ve been and will always be a vocal defender of women who have devoted the time, dedication and selflessness it takes. But there are myriad individual reasons beyond Mrs. O’s expansive goal of battling the collective scourge of childhood

obesity — intimate bonding and health benefits for the mom, not just the baby, for example — that lead women to nurse. And we don’t need Big Brother or Big Mother to lead the Charge of the Big Bosom to persuade us of the personal benefits. Many private hospitals and companies have already adopted nursing-friendly environments. If it’s as good for their bottom lines as it is for babies’ bottoms, they don’t need a government mandate to do the right thing. But as I’ve noted many times over the past year, Mrs. O’s real interest isn’t in nurturing nursing moms or slimming down kids’ waistlines. It’s in boosting government and public union payrolls, along with beefing up FCC and FTC regulators’ duties. Take another East Wing pet project: leaning on private businesses to print expanded frontpackage nutrition labels warning consumers about salt, fat and sugar. The first lady’s anti-fat brigade assumes as an article of faith that her top-down designer food labels will encourage healthier eating habits. It’s a “nobrainer,” Mrs. Obama insists. However, the latest study on this very subject — funded by no less than the left-wing Robert Wood Johnson Foundation — confirms other recent research contradicting the East Wing push. A team led by Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School’s Eric Finkelstein, published in the peer-reviewed American Journal for Preventive Medicine, found that mandatory menu-labeling in Seattle restaurants did not affect consumers’ calorie consumption. “Given the results of prior studies, we had expected the results to be small,” the researchers reported, “but we were surprised that we could not detect even the slightest hint of changes in purchasing behavior as a result of the legislation.” Will the first lady and her food cops be chastened by the science that undermines their spin? Fat chance. ________ Michelle Malkin’s nationally syndicated column appears in the PDN every Friday. Email:

Peninsula Daily News for Friday/Saturday, February 18-19, 2011






Fish derby bigger, better ONE SCORE AND 18 years ago, the people of Gardiner-Discovery Bay brought forth on this Peninsula a salmon derby. Called the Discovery Bay Matt Salmon Derby, it was conceived in Schubert liberty and dedicated to the proposition that only Iron Men could claim its top prize. Now, after some civil action kept it away for a year, it has returned to Presidents Day weekend under a new name: the Olympic Peninsula Salmon Derby. And it is bigger (500 miles of fishing) and bolder (more than $24,000 in prizes) than ever before. Of course, it still takes an awful hardy hombre to heed its call. This is winter blackmouth season we’re talking about, after all; perhaps the Carhartt-wearingest, Dramamine-chewingest, crotch-grabbingest fishery of them all. If misery loves company, consider this weekend’s derby a fiesta of forlorn fishermen (and women). I doubt they’d have it any other way.

Winter warriors

Port Angeles High School junior Austin Fahrenholtz is aiming not only to win the Class 2A state diving title this weekend but also to set a meet record.

So what can anglers expect during this weekend’s derby (other than a morning chill)? That just depends upon how the weather cooperates, according to Brian Menkal of Brian’s Sporting Goods and More (360-683-1950) in Sequim. “If it’s really rough out there, you might end up having to troll,” Menkal said. “If it stays really calm, you might mooch, motor mooch or jig. “It just depends on what the tides are doing and the wind.” As it stood Thursday afternoon, winds weren’t expected to be too severe this weekend. Anglers will have to deal with some strong tides, however. That promises to make getting bait down near the bottom a bit more challenging. That didn’t seem to bother anglers in Marine Area 6 (eastern Strait of Juan de Fuca) near Port Angeles after it opened to salmon fishing Wednesday. Bob Aunspach of Swain’s General Store (360-452-2357) in Port Angeles said there definitely wasn’t a quantity problem during the first two days of the fishery. “The fish aren’t big, but there’s been a pretty good bite both mornings,” Aunspach said. “[Thursday] was a little slower than [Wednesday], but still real good. “They were catching them in the Winter Hole, the Flats, down toward the deep tanks by the mill and Freshwater Bay had fish.” Thus far, just two fish over 10 pounds have been submitted to the Port Angeles Salmon Club’s monthly salmon derby ladder. That was headlined by a 12-pound beauty from Keith Aggergaard of Port Angeles. It almost sounds as if such a fish could take home the $10,000 top prize in this weekend’s derby. “There’s a lot of 5-, 6-, 7-, 8-pounders,” Aunspach said. Reports have been a little harder to come by out of Sequim and Port Townsend. Area 9 (Admiralty Inlet) has been plagued by rough weather for much of the past few weeks, according to Eric Elliot of the Fishing Hole (360385-7031) in Port Townsend. Even when things have cooperated, the pressure has been so-so. “The people that I have heard from, it sounds like things are going OK,” Elliot said. “I’ve heard of some fish getting caught, it’s just such a small sample size [to have a good report].” As for the waters around Sequim, mum’s the word, according to Menkal.

PORT ANGELES — Austin Fahrenholtz had two goals at the beginning of the season: Break the 400-point barrier and win state. The Port Angeles High School junior diver easily achieved his first goal, twice, and now he is aiming for the Class 2A diving championship Saturday at King County

Aquatic Center in Federal Way. The boys swimming and diving state championships are set for today and Saturday. Class 2A preliminaries start at 2:30 p.m. today and 2A finals begin at 2:30 p.m. Saturday. Fahrenholtz, who captured second at state on the 3A level last year, shattered the West Central District meet record by 160 points last weekend and is looking at All-American recogni-

tion with his district score of 402.05. That was the second straight meet that he scored more than 400 points this season. “We’re hoping Austin wins state and breaks the state record this weekend,” Port Angeles diving coach Pete Van Rossen said. “If he dives like he did last week at districts, he will win. His last two meets he has scored over 400 points, and that puts him at high school All-American status, and that is a nice feather in his cap.” The 2A state meet record is 334.90, and that was set in 2009. Fahrenholtz has the No. 1 seed going into state despite the fact that 2A defending cham-

pion Brian Drake of Squalicum, a senior, is returning to state. Drake is seeded No. 2 with a district score of 382.60, which also would break the state 2A record. “Drake is the only one Austin has to worry about,” Van Rossen said. The top two divers are at a different level than the rest of the field, and Fahrenholtz says he is ready for the challenge of going against Drake. “Brian is a good diver, a good competitor,” Fahrenholtz said after practice at William Shore Memorial Pool in Port Angeles on Wednesday evening.

Grahn, Cristion lead wrestlers Forks, Port Angeles stars have best shot at first place Peninsula Daily News

TACOMA — The last three months have all been leading up to this. Mat Classic XXIII is not just the end of a long wrestling season, but also of a grueling threeweek period at the beginning of February that whittles down each weight class to just one champion. The North Olympic Peninsula has produced just 10 such wrestlers since 1953. Eleven area wrestlers will try to join that exclusive group when the state championship competition begins this morning on 24 mats in the Tacoma Dome. “To be a state champ you have to have some good skills, you have to be in great shape and you have to have decided that it was a possibility,” said Forks head coach Bob Wheeler, who has coached five state champions with the Spartans. “Early in the season, maybe there’s a big difference in the physical ability, but by the time you get to the postseason, it’s 80

State percent mental and 20 percent physical. “They all have some good skill. They have all worked hard all season long.” At the top of the heap for Peninsula wrestlers are Port Angeles 189-pounder Nathan Cristion and Forks 119-pounder Cutter Grahn. Both enter the tournament fresh off regional championships. Cristion’s was a little bittersweet, however, since it came by way of an injury default against Kingston’s Freddy Rodoff in the final. Thus, Cristion (38-2 overall) missed out on a chance to avenge his only two losses of the season. “Obviously, Nathan was disappointed, I was disappointed,” Port Angeles head coach Erik Gonzalez said. “It would have Lonnie Archibald/for Peninsula Daily News Keith Thorpe/Peninsula Daily News been good to see how far he had Nathan Cristion of Port Cutter Grahn of Forks come [this season].” claimed sixth at state last Angeles only has two losses on the year.

Rider girls earn state 2A berth PA rips Trojans at district event Peninsula Daily News

TACOMA — The Port Angeles girls basketball team is back at state for the first time in seven years. The Roughriders, the No. 3 seed in the West Central District tournament, ripped Olympic League rival Olympic 77-37

at Foss High School to cruise to the district semifinals Thursday night. Port Angeles (19-4) advances to play the winner between Sumner and Kingston at Curtis High School in University Place at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday. The winner of that game goes on to play for the district championship while the loser plays for the third and fourth seeds to state. Both games are on Monday. The Riders have beaten

Kingston, an Olympic League team, twice but lost by 10 points to Sumner in a subdistrict game. “It will be a good game either way,” Port Angeles coach Mike Knowles said. “We beat Kingston twice but they were really close games.” Port Angeles, which was last at state in 2004, tuned up for the semifinals by beating a known Olympic League foe by 40 points, pretty much the same point spread that the Riders beat the

Trojans in the other two games. But this game didn’t look like it would go that way early on. The Trojans led 16-14 after hitting a mid-court 3-pointer at the first-quarter buzzer. “That was a wake-up call for us,” Knowles said. “You have to give Olympic credit. They came out with a lot of energy and they played tough. “They just couldn’t keep it up.” Turn

Riders: Onward to semifinals Continued from B1 The Riders held the Trojans to four points in the second quarter to lead 34-20 at halftime and never looked back. Olympic was held to 17 points in the second half while Port Angeles scored 43. “It’s not easy to beat a team three times,” Knowles said. “We weren’t flat to start with, it’s just that Olympic came out playing hard.” But once the Riders got the upper hand,they poured it on. Port Angeles was consistent in the final three quarters, scoring 20, 22 and 21 points while holding the Trojans to 4, 13 and 4. Jessica Madison scorched the nets for 27 points and has pushed her school career scoring record past 1,800 points to 1,826. She has two more district games and at least two state games to keep adding to the record. Two other players scored in double figures for the Riders, with Kiah Jones sinking 17, and Alison Knowles scoring 15. Alison is the coach’s daughter. Shannon Jackson scored 12 points for Olympic while Jalyn Halstead had 11. The Riders didn’t record rebounds but “Taylyn Jeffers had a ton of them,” Knowles said.

TEMPE, Ariz. — With one of the biggest games of the season looming on Saturday against first-place Arizona, Washington needed about 10 minutes to get going against the Pac10’s last-place team on Thursday. And despite a short lapse early in the second half, the Huskies got past Arizona State 79-62 on Thursday behind Matthew BryanAmaning’s 22 points and 12 rebounds, setting up the showdown in Tucson with the 12th-ranked Wildcats, who lead third-place Washington by 1½ games. “I would say this is a big game,” Washington coach Lorenzo Romar said. “Because the next one is always your biggest one. I always say, like Arizona State, if we lose this, that became a big game. The next one, for whatever reason, is huge. “Arizona is leading our league right now and they are playing very good basketball. “They are playing at home. This is our last game on the road in the Pac-10. There is a lot at stake on

Diving: At the top of his class Continued from B1 “I expect a close meet but I plan to win.” Despite the confidence, Fahrenholtz said he expects he will be a little nervous at first because of the extra pressure of being No. 1. “There will be pressure on me but I dive better with good competition,” he said. “There’s more pressure on you and so you focus more.” Last year Fahrenholtz went to state seeded no higher than fifth after claiming third at the West Central District meet but surprised a few people by taking second overall at state. He has since joined a club diving team at Bainbridge where he trains and competes every Saturday after getting up at 6:30 a.m. to make the trip to the pool. The extra hours of training has helped him reach a new level of competition where he has been dominating at meets this season. Fahrenholtz has put in so many hours of practice that most of his dives are automatic right now. He tries not to over-think himself when he’s on the diving board. “I don’t think about what I’m doing, I just do it,” he said. “When you think about it, you can mess up.” He also sticks to dives in competition that he is familiar with. His signature dive that he can take to the bank is the front-double. “I have been doing the forward-double since I was a freshman, so I have done it many times,” Fahrenholtz said. Another key to Fahrenholtz’s success is that he is extremely good on the five required dives during 11-dive district and state competition. “Austin scores high on the required dives, which include front, back and twists,” Van Rossen said. Another strength for Fahrenholtz is being consistent in competition. “One of my goals is trying to stay very consistent,” he said. The junior athlete is excited about what could happen at state today and Saturday. “It’s going to be great competition,” he said. Fahrenholtz expects to win state and he knows he has the ability to win it all but he’s not going to beat himself up if it doesn’t hap-

our end, we are trying to get into the NCAA tournament. This is a big game.” C.J. Wilcox added 16 points, including four 3-pointers, and eight rebounds for Washington (18-7, 10-4), which has won three straight after losing three in a row. Wilcox played a seasonhigh 25 minutes after losing Scott Suggs, the Pac-10’s second-best 3-point shooter, to what Romar said was a sprained medical collateral ligament just 3:13 into the game. “C.J. Wilcox did a phenomenal job off the bench,” Romar said. “He rebounded, eight rebounds, scored, he hit (3-pointers), he fed the post and he defended. He had a really good all-around game.” Romar said Suggs is doubtful for the game against Arizona, but didn’t rule him out. The conference’s thirdleading scorer, Isaiah Thomas, had 11 points, six below his average, and six assists. Ty Abbott had 15 points for the Sun Devils (9-16, 1-12), who have lost nine straight games.

Kimberly Brandon added 13 points and nine rebounds for Arizona State (15-8, 7-6 Pac-10). Tobin scored 13 of her points in the second half. For the game, she shot 9 of 11 from the field and had 10 rebounds. Kristi Kingma scored 18 points to lead Washington (10-13, 5-9), which has lost three of four. Regina Rogers added 11 points while Mackenzie Argens and Sarah Morton had 10 points

apiece. Arizona State made 12 of 14 in the final three minutes to maintain the lead. The Sun Devils were 77 percent from the foul line and 49 percent from the field in the game. The victory kept Arizona State in fourth place in the conference with five games remaining. The Huskies remained in eighth. Tobin scored nine straight points for Arizona State midway through the second half. Morton’s four-point play during a 10-2 run helped rally the Huskies from a 14-point second-half deficit to within 41-38 with 11:45 remaining.

Austin Fahrenholtz dives during competition on Jan. 6 at William Shore Memorial Pool in Port Angeles. pen this year. “I still have another year left if Brian Drake scores over 400 and beats me,” he said. No matter what happens, Fahrenholtz will continue to participate in club diving throughout the year

and then he plans to dive in college. The practical athlete said it doesn’t have to be a major college like the University of Washington. A smaller college with a good diving team would do as well.

Five best bets for this week ■ Olympic Peninsula Salmon Derby — George Washington might not have been able to tell a lie, but that’s probably because he never fished. Luckily for those honest types, we have things like salmon derbies, which actually require us to weigh our fish before making outlandish claims. Oh, and the winner also gets outlandish sums of money ($10,000). ■ Sol Duc steelhead — Richard Nixon probably would’ve been a good steelheader. A sometimes-cranky disposition (check). A stubborn pursuer of goals, even in the face of constant failure (check). Well-practiced in the art of deception (check). Yes, I think it’s safe to say our 37th president would hook a steelie on the Sol Duc River this weekend. ■ Razor clams — Franklin Delano Roosevelt certainly knew the value of putting a shovel in the ground. You can learn that too by taking part in this Send it to me, Matt Schubert, Sports Department, Peninsula Daily News, P.O.

weekend’s afternoon razor clam digs at Kalaloch and four other coastal beaches. For more details, see today’s outdoors column. ■ Counting cluckers — Thomas Jefferson never missed a chance to indulge his avian interests, and you shouldn’t either. This weekend’s Great Backyard Bird Count — set for today through Monday — gives Peninsula birders the same chance. Counters can tally birds in their own backyard or venture off to other locations, then come home and enter the data online at Way easier than writing the Declaration of Independence. ■ Powder up — George W. Bush was once known to partake in some fresh powder. There’s plenty of that sitting atop Hurricane Ridge, so you cut up a little powder of your own this weekend. That includes the Monday holiday.

Williams, Wildcats hold off WSU 79-70 By John Marshall The Associated Press

TUCSON, Ariz. — When Derrick Williams first injured his pinky, Arizona coach Sean Miller said it would probably take three weeks before he felt comfortable again. Miller was right and his best player was back. Williams had his best game since getting his pinky bent backward three weeks ago, scoring 26 points and grabbing eight rebounds to help the 12thranked Wildcats overcome Klay Thompson’s big night and beat Washington State 79-70 on Thursday. “He’s worrying about less now, you can tell he’s

feeling better, which makes sense because this is the three-week mark of his injury and what we talked about is this is when he’d start to feel better,” Miller said. “I think big picture-wise, he’s going to be returning back to form.” Williams had been relatively quiet the previous two games, scoring a combined 23 points as he tried to fight through collapsing defenses and a bandage that made his right hand look like a white toy gun. The defense nor the stillbandaged pinky didn’t bother him this night. Somewhat reluctant to shoot as much with his right hand after the injury,

Williams shot confidently from his dominant side, getting to the rim seemingly whenever he wanted and to the line when he didn’t. Shaking off a slow start, Williams gained confidence as the game went along, finishing 7 of 10 from the floor and hitting all 12 of his free throws to help Arizona (22-4, 11-2 Pac-10) improve to 14-0 at home. “Yeah, he played great,” said Arizona guard Kyle Fogg, who had most of his seven assists to Williams. Arizona needed more than just Williams against the Cougars. Numerous players provided a lift early as Williams revved up his engine and Solomon Hill provided

additional support by scoring all 12 of his points in the second half. Arizona had some breakdowns defensively in the second half, particularly on Thompson, to lose most of a 17-point lead, but pulled out its seventh straight win by making 24 of 26 free throws, including 21 straight. “That’s the sign of a good team, a veteran team that knows how to win,” Washington State coach Ken Bone said. “Good teams don’t beat themselves and Arizona didn’t allow that to happen.” Washington State still almost pulled it out behind Thompson. The Pac-10’s leading

scorer had a quiet start just like Williams, then got into a rhythm, scoring his 30 points in bunches. Thompson had 12 points in the first half and almost single-handedly led the Cougars back with 11 points in 3½ minutes after Washington State fell

behind by 17. He finished 11 of 24 from the floor, including 5 of 8 from 3-point range. “Klay Thompson proved to a lot of people he’s one of the best college players out there,” Miller said. “I don’t know what more we could do.”

Our Peninsula


Uncommon elements blend for healing Trio promotes therapeutic use of harmonic sound By Diane Urbani de la Paz

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — This evening, an uncommon concert — populated with unusual instruments — will fill the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall between Sequim and Port Angeles. It’s titled the “Full Moon Harmonic Healing.” It will start with “a couple of Earth chants to ground people,” promised Geraldine Lesser, a drummer and one of the trio of women hosting the 6:30 p.m. event. Lesser will also play the mother buffalo drum, an instrument covered with buffalo hide. Then Sequim recording artist Sophia Engkvist will tone — vocalize without

words — and play her set of Tibetan and crystal bowls, gongs and bells. Marie-Claire Bernards, an intuitive consultant who owns Willow Pond Consulting, will offer meditations for healing.

Gentle vibrations Together, the elements of the concert will render listeners awash in gentle vibrations, Lesser said. She describes tonight’s concert as both a refreshing experience and a sensory pleasure. “Come with an open mind,” she said, “and an open heart. “Sound is something we don’t pay enough attention to” as a healing agent. The sound of crystal bowls is “otherworldly,” Lesser added.

Marie-Claire Bernards Meditations for healing

Geraldine Lesser Sohpia Engkvist Plays mother buffalo drum Vocalizes without words

Peninsula Weekend “It takes you out of your ordinary state of mind to a higher vibration. “What we’re trying to do is relax people . . . it’s healing to relax, and it’s healing to be in community

with other people doing the same thing.” “This sonic experience,” added Bernards, “will be unique for each in attendance.” She, along with Eng-

kvist and Lesser, is part of a monthly gathering called the Intuitive Circle at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, at 73 Howe Road off North Barr Road. The circle usually meets the third Thursday of the month from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., so the next one will be March 17.

Like the circle, the concert is “a nondenominational experience,” Bernards said. “Bring mats, pillows, blankets, etc., for your comfort, as it is recommended that you lie down for some or all of the time,” she added. But “nothing [is] required but your presence.” Admission to tonight’s Harmonic Healing is a donation of $5 to $20, but Bernards emphasized that no one will be turned away. Engkvist’s CD, “What If a Day,” will be available for purchase. To learn more about tonight’s concert and the monthly Intuitive Circle, phone Bernards at 360681-4411 or visit www.

Solution to suicide is available in Jesus I WINCE WHEN people do it. I know they do it without thinking, but I still cringe. It’s a simple nonverbal gesture, but it can be horrendously loud. At least in my head it’s loud: A forefinger is placed to the temple and the thumb-hammer is released. Bang. I hear it. I see it. But the storyteller doesn’t and rambles on without a clue. They probably don’t see me flinch. And for me to explain to them what their “handgun” just mentally triggered probably wouldn’t be kind. I know they meant no harm, but they no longer really have my attention. My mind has gone to a different place, a different time, a different story. “Would you be willing to identify his body?” the officer asked me. The officer was a friend with whom I shared the same first name; now, we shared something very different. We stood together in front of the car with its trunk hiding the grisly scene. It is my nature to want to be helpful, but I asked, “Is it really necessary?” He graciously said it wasn’t, so I declined the certain mental residue. Greg drove, and this Greg sat in dreaded silence as we rode to deliver the news to my wife about her younger brother. Was it merely circumstance that she was taking a walk in the woods with Greg’s wife? They knew something was wrong when they saw the Gregs arrive in the black police car. I choked out the news and handed

ISSUES OF FAITH her the Reynolds bloodstained note. The lightning bolt of tragedy went deep into a sister’s soul, my wife’s soul. Later, the sky and hearts cracked again when I informed his mother over the telephone and helplessly heard her wail. He was my brother-inlaw. Married. Three very young children. Family and friends were left dumbstruck. Sometimes there was anger. Always there was pain. The “Why?” and “What if . . . ?” questions came as incessantly as the tide, but they always remained unanswered. And there is the self-searching pondering “Maybe if I’d have . . .” With time, the questions and ponderings lessen, but I suspect they will never really disappear. The only thing I had the power to make disappear was the gun. I like guns, but not that one. Sparks flew as the metal chop-saw performed justice.

married last year. The youngest daughter has graduated from high school. And today, his wife is a woman full of life. But no one has forgotten. I extend my condolences to the local families and their friends who are grieving from recent suicides. I am sorry for your loss and pain. I pray that God will somehow provide you comfort. The Author of Life knows your grief. I dare not simplify the complexities of suicide, but often there is a common thread of hopelessness. A hopeless problem. A hopeless relationship or the hopelessness of no relationship. A future with no foreseeable hope. Instead of light at the end of the tunnel, there is just a dark, endless tunnel. And instead of searching for or finding a viable escape, some people sadly succumb to the darkness.

U.S. high school students reported that they had seriously considered attempting suicide during the 12 months preceding the survey, 6.3 percent of students reported that they had actually attempted suicide one or more times during the same period,” according to the website prevention. No, the problem of suicide should not be avoided. I commend the many people who search for suicide solutions and help in its aftermath. Hospitals and law enforcement agencies are trained to help. Counselors help. Parents help. And perhaps best of all, teens want to help their peers.

January costly for consumer

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Consumers paid more in January for everything from food and gas to airline tickets and clothing. The price increases reflect creeping but stillmodest inflation. The Consumer Price Index rose 0.4 percent last month, matching December’s increase, the Labor Department said Thursday. In the past year, the index has risen 1.6 percent. Core prices, which exclude volatile food and energy costs, rose 0.2 percent. That’s the largest increase in more than a year. They increased 1 percent over the past 12 months. That’s higher than December’s 0.8 percent annual pace but well below

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is launching a new round of work site investigations, maintaining the pressure on businesses to make sure they are hiring only people who can legally work in the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Thursday it has notified 1,000 companies of upcoming audits of their I-9s, forms that new employees complete, and of the identification documents those employees provided to show they are eligible to work in the U.S. “The inspections will touch on employers of all sizes and in every state in the nation — no one industry is being targeted nor is any one industry immune from scrutiny,” ICE said in a statement. The agency declined to name the businesses to be inspected.

JUNEAU, Alaska — Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell said Thursday he will not implement the federal health care overhaul after a judge in Florida struck down the law as unconstitutional. It’s not immediately clear what practical impact the unusual move would have on Alaskans, an estimated 14 percent of whom are uninsured year-round. A major expansion of the federal law is still pending, and a legal expert and health care consumer advo-

Other reports Thursday showed: n  More people are applying for unemployment benefits. Applications rose last week to a seasonally adjusted 410,000, the Labor Department said. That follows a week when they fell to their low-

reached a 40-year low of 4.17 percent in November. n  A private research group’s gauge of future economic activity rose a slim 0.1 percent in January, much less than in recent months. The rise in the Conference Board's index of leading economic indicators was the seventh consecutive monthly advance. The report on consumer prices shows that some companies are seeking to pass on higher prices for oil, cotton and agricultural products. In January, a measure of wholesale inflation rose at the fastest pace in more than two years. But high unemployment and weak wage increases are limiting retailers from hiking up prices.

cate said any refusal by the states to participate in the law is an invitation to the federal government to step in and implement it for them. Parnell, who sought the advice of his attorney general amid concerns implementing the law would violate his oath of office, told the Juneau Chamber of Commerce the state would pursue lawful, marketbased solutions to making insurance affordable and accessible to Alaskans. He said the Florida judge’s ruling is the law of

the land as it pertains to Alaska, barring implementation of the federal law here. He said the state will pursue options of its own instead. Alaska and Washington state were two of 26 states that were party to the Florida lawsuit. However, in other cases, two federal judges have upheld the law, and one judge ruled a provision requiring citizens to buy health insurance or face penalties — a major point of

contention in the Florida case — is unconstitutional but did not strike down the rest of the law. While the ultimate decision is likely to rest with the U.S. Supreme Court, for now, the overhaul is the law of the land, contends Timothy S. Jost, a professor at the Washington and Lee University School of Law. “This is one renegade judge that has reached this decision,” he said. In refusing to participate in the law, he said, Alaska “is really the outlier” among states.

YAKIMA — Federal agents have raided a cigarette maker on the Yakama Reservation, one day after the company sued Washington state alleging violations of the tribe’s 1855 treaty. A lawyer for King Mountain tobacco confirmed Wednesday’s raid but otherwise declined to comment. The FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives did not return calls seeking comment. The raid came one day after King Mountain sued Washington state and Attorney General Rob McKenna, alleging violations of the Yakama Nation’s 1855 treaty rights. In a lawsuit filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court, King Mountain claims the state is illegally collecting a penalty stemming from the


DALLAS — Major U.S. airlines are rolling back a fare increase of up to $120 per round trip on tickets favored by business travelers. Delta Air Lines raised the fares Monday, and other major airlines went along. But fare trackers said that US Airways had second thoughts and dropped the increase Wednesday. Rick Seaney of said Thursday that United and Continental then completely rolled back their increases, while Delta and American scaled back their hikes. Fare increases can fail if a major competitor refuses to go along because other airlines won’t risk losing business with higher prices. The Delta increase applied to some first-class, business-class and highend economy fares on routes within the U.S. It was the second — and larger — increase aimed at business travelers this month. Airlines, which are paying about 50 percent more for fuel than they did a year ago, have also raised fares or fuel surcharges on leisure travelers five times since December. Jamie Baker, an analyst for JPMorgan Chase, said that even though the Delta increase targeted corporate travelers who usually worry less about price, evidence is growing that many passengers may not be willing to pay higher fares.

Birdean was born October 3, 1935, in Bellingham, Washington, to Thomas Henry and Margret Braithwaite. She graduated from Mount Baker High School in 1954, and soon after married Lowell L. Nash. Throughout their married life, they had lived in the Bellingham area and

Death and Memorial Notice BERNARD HOLMES MCMAHILL January 4, 1926 November 24, 2010 Bernie McMahill was born on January 4, 1926, in Omaha, Nebraska, and died in Renton, Washington, on November 24, 2010. He was a lover of junk yards, children, cats, jazz, chocolate, goats, dancing, old movies, and old cars. Bernie is survived by his wife of 32 years, Nancy; children, Scott (Robin), Cheiron and Teresa; stepchildren, John Sawyer, Dean Sawyer (Marie), Heidi Hale (John), and Shari Trotzuk (Wayne); brothers, Gary McMahill, Fred Davis (Dorothy), and Duane “Micky” Davis (Rosemary); 16 grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; five nieces; four cousins, and one grand-cat. Brother James McMahill and son John Bernard McMahill preceded Bernie in death. When he was 3 years old, Bernie’s family moved

Mr. McMahill to Seattle to join relatives. His father died in 1931, and in 1934, Bernie’s mother married Claude Davis. Claude’s work and wanderlust took the family to many places, among them Panama, Electric City, Washington — where Claude worked on the Grand Coulee Dam — and Port Angeles, where Bernie met his first wife, Irene, and graduated from Roosevelt High School in 1945. His poor eyesight prevented Bernie from joining the military in World War

II, but he proudly served in the Merchant Marine. Bernie moved from Port Angeles to Seattle in 1950. He worked for the Boeing Company for more than 45 years, starting on the assembly line and ending his career in training. After his retirement, Bernie could often be found at the Renton Library, Scarecrow Video or Borracchini’s Bakery. His favorite pastime, however, was working on his beloved car, a work-inprogress that included parts from a Chevy Corvair, Cadillac and 1939 Lincoln Zephyr coupe. A big hearted, generous, warm-spirited lover of life and great storyteller, Bernie will be dearly missed. Donations in his memory can be made to the junk yard of your choice, or the King County Library System Foundation, 960 Newport Way NW, Issaquah, WA 98027, or online at kclsfoundation. org (please indicate that the donation is in Bernie’s memory and the funds will go to the Renton Library).

Death and Memorial Notice CAPT. JAMES FRANKLIN BUTLER July 10, 1936 February 13, 2011 Captain James Franklin Butler (USCG ret.), longtime resident of Port Angeles, “Crossed the Bar” on February 13, 2011, following a brief illness. Beloved husband of Ann Travers Butler, loving father of Scott Franklin Butler (Dubai, United Arab Emirates), and Mary Butler Getty (Portland, Oregon), affectionate father-in-law to Rhonda Butler (wife of Scott) and Michael Getty (husband of Mary), and doting grandfather to Ashley, Ryan, Andrew, Nathan and Caroline, he is already sorely missed. Jim was born in Ironwood, Michigan, on July 10, 1936, to Ralph and Frances Butler, and graduated from Ironwood High School in 1954. He was preceded in death by his mother and father; sisters, Joan Geuder and Patti Stonemark; and daughter, Elizabeth. Jim and Ann were mar-

Capt. Butler ried on March 25, 1961, in Richmond, Indiana, and would have celebrated their golden wedding anniversary next month. Throughout his life, he was known for his vision, energy and leadership. A 1960 graduate of the Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut, he earned a Master of Science in Industrial Administration degree at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana, in 1973. He began his distinguished military career as a Seaman Recruit at Cape

May, New Jersey, in 1955. As an enlisted serviceman, he was an Electronics Technician and transferred to the Academy in short order. Following graduation from the Academy, he was assigned to serve aboard the USCGC Mackinaw, and then sent to flight training, where he found his lifelong passion as a superlative pilot flying both fixed-wing and rotary wing. Transfers to Barbers Point, Hawaii, and Traverse City, Michigan, followed. After graduate school, Jim was transferred to the Coast Guard Aviation Training Center in Mobile, Alabama, as Aviation Engineering Officer. The next tour of duty was at CG headquarters in Washington, D.C., where he was selected to act as the Coast Guard liaison to President Carter’s inauguration in 1971, and then tapped to head up the A-76 program. In 1979, Jim arrived in Port Angeles and served as Commanding Officer of the Air Station. Following this assignment, he was Chief of Personnel of CG

District Office in Seattle, then Commanding Officer of the Aircraft Repair and Support Center in Elizabeth City, North Carolina. Headquarters called up again and Jim was Deputy Head of the CG Short Range Rescue Helicopter Procurement Project. During his service he received three meritorious service medals, a Joint Service Commendation Medal, a CG Commendation Medal, a Coast Guard Achievement Medal, a Commandant’s Letter of Commendation, a CG Unit Commendation, a Meritorious Unit Commendation, a National Defense Service Medal, a Coast Guard Sea Service Ribbon, a Vietnam Service Medal with Bronze Star, and an Expert .45 caliber Pistol Ribbon. His last tour of duty was in the CG District Office in Cleveland, Ohio, where he was Chief of Staff. He retired from the Coast Guard in 1989, and returned to Port Angeles, where he continued to be very active in public service. Jim cared about a lot of

things: his family, his friends, the Coast Guard, his community and his country. Following his official retirement, he wasted little time in getting involved. He was on the Board of Directors of the YMCA and Board of Directors of the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center. He was active in several local political campaigns. He was President of Travers Inc., a family investment corporation. As a member of the Episcopal Church, Jim was a driving force behind the development of an assisted living facility, St. Andrew’s Place, and was Chairman of the Board for St. Andrew’s Place. Because of his success with that, he became a board member of Episcopal Retirement Communities. Since he loved to fix people’s problems, he found a niche serving as a Guardian Ad Litem for Juvenile & Family Services of Clallam County. How he lived every day was a testament to how he

enriched the lives of countless others through his dedication, character, leadership and involvement in the community. He was an inspiration to all who knew him. Port Angeles has lost a committed, talented resource as well as a friend. We will miss his entertaining stories, boundless energy, and enthusiasm for life. A memorial service will be held Monday, February 21, 2011, at 11 a.m. at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, 510 East Park Avenue in Port Angeles. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to: Port Angeles Fine Arts Center, 1203 East Lauridsen Boulevard, Port Angeles, WA 98362; St. Andrew’s Place, 520 East Park Avenue, Port Angeles, WA 98362; or St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, 510 E.

Cora Belle Alexander Tonkin was born on January 21, 1917, to parents Justus A. Crooker and Hattie M. Crooker in Ontonagon, Michigan. She graduated from Ontonagon High School in 1934. She married Floyd Alexander in 1935, and had two children, Max Alexander and Alice Joan Alexander Bittner. They owned and worked in a residential grocery store for 25 years. They moved to Alaska in 1971, to be near her daughter, Joan, and manage a camper park in Anchorage for several years. They spent the winters in Lake Elsinore, Calif. Belle and her husband, Floyd, moved to Sequim in 1978 to be near their daughter, Joan. Belle’s husband, Floyd, died in 1981. She remarried in 1983 to William Hannah. He died of injuries from a car accident eight months later. Belle married Kenneth “Bud” Tonkin of Sequim and enjoyed 26 years together before he passed away on December 27, 2009, leaving two stepchildren, LeRay Johnson of Maple Valley, Washington, and LaNell Schipper of Auburn, Washington. Belle and Bud enjoyed traveling and visited Spain, Germany and several trips by cruise ship to Alaska, Panama Canal and Mexico, and several rail trips on Amtrak.

Death and Memorial Notice SAM GAYDESKI November 29, 1960 February 14, 2011 Sam Gaydeski, 50, lost his life February 14, 2011, from a heavy-equipment work-related accident. He was born November 29, 1960, to Darrel and Jerry Lou Gaydeski in Port Angeles. A lifelong Forks resident, Sam graduated from Forks High School in 1979, and immediately began his work career which included many years driving fuel truck for Wes’ Wholesale & Distributing, owning and operating Sappho Junction (Sappho Sam’s) and nearly five years with DNR up until the time of his death — a job that gave him the opportunity to do something he really loved, operating heavy equipment. Sam married Deborah Reneé Hurn August 29, 1987. Together they were blessed with three children: Marin Rachelle (20), Mason D. Gudger (18) and Morgan Reneé (15). When work didn’t hold him back, Sam loved to attend his children’s many sporting events and school activities.

Mr. Gaydeski Much like his dad, Sam had a passion for photography, going as far as having a darkroom in his youth. He loved to chronicle his family’s life. Sam was typically found behind a camera, rarely in front. His children have fond memories of Sunday drives, learning area history and their dad’s own childhood memories. Summers were spent at Lake Pleasant with family and friends during which he spent many hours pulling kids on tubes and entertaining them with his own shenanigans on a tube. He looked forward to

swap meet road trips or just hitting garage sales, always looking to score a deal on “treasures.” Sam loved to share these adventures with his friends and neighbors over morning coffee with the Beaver coffee crowd, as he did for many years. He was a member of Forks Lions Club and Forks Elks Lodge, his family belongs to Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, and Sam had served as a volunteer fireman for the Forks Fire Department. One project that held special meaning for him was the Forks Lions Club’s annual delivery of a 30-plus foot Christmas tree to Evergreen Hospice of Kirkland for their “Light Up a Life” ceremony. He made this trip nearly every year and worked as project coordinator for the past several years. Sam is survived by his wife, Deborah; daughters, Marin and Morgan; and son, Mason; mother, Jerry Lou Gaydeski (father, Darrel, preceded him in death); parents-in-law, Dean and Elaine Hurn; brother and sister-in-law, Joe and Joyce Gaydeski; sister and brother-in-law,

Darla and Scott DePew; sister-in-law, De Ann Horton (husband, Tod, preceded him in death); brother-in-law and wife, Ron and Traci Hurn; brothers-in-law, Robert Hurn and Rick Hurn; and numerous nieces and nephews. He was a wonderful mix of humorous contradiction; quiet but outgoing, frugal but generous to his friends. He loved to collect old things but always had the most up-to-date technology when it came to cell phones or cameras. Most of all, Sam collected friends. With that signature grin, he touched the lives of a wide circle of friends and his extensive family who love him and will miss him dearly.

histories presented in Trust in the Land: New Directions in Tribal Conservation by Beth Rose Middleton. Commenting last week on the book, land trust Director Greg Good said the land trust works with all area tribes as well as other groups, businesses and individuals. “The tribes have an outstanding heritage of living in harmony with the environment,” Good said. “They provide valuable expertise as well as inspiration.” Middleton contacted Good while she was writing Trust in the Land after learning about the land conservation efforts of the North Olympic Land Trust in partnership with several of the Peninsula’s tribes. The book’s author describes the kinds of conservation tools land trusts use as important for environmental justice and human rights as well as land protection. It is published by University of Arizona Press and is scheduled for release March 24. It will retail for $35. More information about the book is available at and AZpress.

Woman needs friends like herself


DEAR ABBY: I am a very conservative woman. I don’t drink, dance, wear makeup or pants. I enjoy the company of friends despite our differences and thought they enjoyed mine. On our most recent outing, however, they mocked my religious jewelry, commented on my “lack of fashion” and made me feel guilty for not wanting to stay out late. Despite this, they are great friends and would help me at the drop of a hat. I don’t bring up their being overweight or that I think some of the clothes they wear are ugly. I don’t criticize them for sleeping around. I wish they would accept me for who I am. I am considering not going out with them the next time they ask, but I don’t really want it to come to that. Any suggestions? Just an Old-Fashioned Girl

For Better or For Worse


Dear Old-Fashioned: Just this: It’s time for you to start cultivating relationships with people whose values are more like your own. The friends you have described may be lovely, but their comments were out of line, and folks are known by the company they keep. If you spend a lot of time with the women you have described, people will begin to make assumptions about you.

Frank & Ernest

Dear Abby: Two of my children, ages 28 and 30 and college-educated, have what they call “billpaying anxiety.” It doesn’t matter if they have the money or not, they find it difficult to pay their bills. They have both lost their licenses for not paying traffic tickets, but that hasn’t taught either one of them a lesson. Any advice on how to help them? Anxious Mom in Washington


Dear Mom: How long have those two been out from under your roof? Did you pay all their expenses until recently? Your “children” aren’t children anymore. They have reached an age when they must now learn from their mistakes. When they’re ready


DEAR ABBY to assume responsibility for their Van Buren actions, they’ll do what other adults who are in this kind of hot water do: They will seek financial or psychological counseling and recognize that acting like ostriches will not fix their problems, and neither will Mama.


Dear Abby: My 24-year-old daughter, “Evy,” is falling to the rocky bottom. She has taken advantage of everyone in our family. She thinks she’s the victim instead of realizing she is the problem. She’s planning to marry “Dave,” a man she has known for only six months. She refuses to consider his past criminal record of domestic abuse. Abby, this man has several children, one of whom he does not acknowledge. Am I wrong to be involved in this wedding? I feel it would be a mistake to be “supportive” when I’m totally against it. Dave has pushed her already, and I know what lies ahead for her if she goes through with this marriage. Also, her behavior has changed drastically since she has been involved with him. To Be or Not to Be . . . the Mother of the Bride Dear T.B. or N.T.B.: You will always be your daughter’s mother, but you don’t have to bless this marriage with your presence. Some people have to learn their lessons the hard way, and your daughter appears to be one of them. She needs to understand that while you do not approve of Dave, you love her. Keep the lines of communication open because she is going to need you in the future.

Saved from obscurity “Wheedle’s Groove� would not have seen the light of day were it not for Mr. Supreme, a local record collector and disc jockey who found a dusty 45-rpm single, “Bold Soul Sister,� in a 99-cent bin at a 2001 Seattle Center record show. The find propelled Supreme to the local record label Light In The Attic with the idea of releasing a Seattle soul and funk compilation, and the result was a CD titled “Wheedle’s Groove.� At the CD release party in 2004, a long line of baby boomers and funk-hungry 20-somethings wrapped around the building, and the musicians inside, now janitors and graphic designers and truck drivers, got ready to perform together for the first time in 30 years.

Ironically, only a young Kenny G, after leaving the primarily black funk band that gave him his start, was able to rise to the level of success that everyone else had dreamed of. Reminiscing, each former player identifies a particular moment or decision that led away from the music. The moment for one band was a misunderstanding-turned falling-out; for others it was something else. Maas’ decision to do a documentary of this particular time in Seattle’s musical history was driven, she says, “by the desire to take at least a small step

The Acme A Cappella quartet from Wenatchee, with tenor Doug Randall, left, lead Kevin Pitts, baritone John Merritt and bass Tom Graham comes to Sequim this Saturday night for “Jukebox Live!” a show hosted by the Olympic Peninsula Men’s Chorus. The men come together from across the North Olympic Peninsula, to sing lead, tenor, bass and baritone and to reach for perfect harmony. Curtis, one of the newer members of the chorus, had done folk and madrigal singing before. But in order to adopt the barbershop style, he had to learn about things like “hangers.”

‘Walking straight in’ These are the notes one holds a long time, for as much as four measures in some cases. It’s a matter of

getting your breath under control, Curtis said, to fully “support that note.” McElvie joined the chorus back in 1989 — and practically had to force himself. “I was afraid to sing outside the shower,” he remembered. He resolved to conquer that fear by walking straight in. Once he realized the audience wasn’t going to hurt him, he started making real progress. And McElvie, who was born in Scotland but grew up north of London, had long ago seen a perfor-

mance by another quartet that left for the United States around the same time he did. It was Liverpool in 1963, and McElvie, then 18, remembers going to a smoke-filled club where four young men were playing rock ’n’ roll. Soon after McElvie arrived in America in 1964, he saw the Beatles again on “The Ed Sullivan Show.” Songs from that era, plus some earlier classics, will come to life Saturday night, and they just might ignite some memories of

youthful romance, McElvie said. “Jukebox Live!” will be “something you don’t expect . . . with no pyrotechnics,” just human voices, making music. To buy tickets in advance, stop by The Buzz, 128 N.

The Chairs to improvise Comedy contest a few laughs Saturday to fill Upstage in PT Peninsula Spotlight

Peninsula Spotlight

PORT TOWNSEND — The Chairs, a troupe of teenagers dedicated to improvisational performance, are coming next to Better Living Through Coffee this Saturday night. The 7 p.m. show will combine The Chairs’ improv skills with input from the audience, promises Joey Pipia, the troupe’s director. The ensemble, based at the Chameleon Theater in Port Townsend, is on its first road trip, which includes stops in Port Angeles, Sequim and Poulsbo.

Funny scenes At each performance, The Chairs unleash shortform improvisations in which the performers aim to be quick, situational and comic, Pipia said. And Saturday’s show may well be “a wild time,” he added. With this troupe, the audience takes a front-andcenter role, since all of the

Artist Ray Troll to reveal tales behind ‘fin art’

By Diane Urbani de la Paz Peninsula Spotlight

full moon. But Troll, 56, is more than a shirt cartoonist. He’s an endlessly curious, even awestruck observer of the natural world who’s published eight books now, from Cruisin’ the Fossil Freeway to his latest, Something Fishy This Way Comes. Both Troll and Fishy are coming this way next week. The author and artist will give a slide show of images from the new book — plus some pictures that got away — at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St. Admission is free, while Troll’s books will be for sale.

PORT ANGELES — Fish: They’re musical, they’re tragically romantic and they play a good poker game. In Ray Troll’s mind, that is. The self-described “fin artist” of Ketchikan, Alaska, is always seeing creatures in new scenarios, and then picturing those scenarios on people’s chests via his T-shirts. Just a few from the Troll school of thought: “Fish and Chips,” where they’re all holding aces, “Jammin’ Salmon” with fish wielding string instruments, and “Salmon: the Fish that Dies for Love,” an image of ‘Local character’ spawning beneath the Port Book & News of Port Angeles and the nonprofit Coastal Watershed Institute are hosting Troll, who has emerged from his studio and gallery in Ketchikan for a Pacific Northwest tour. The artist, who has degrees from Bethany College in Kansas and from Washington State University, went north 28 years ago and found his natural habitat. “I like small-town life; I’m sort of a local character,” Troll said in an interview this week from his streamside gallery, the Soho Coho. “I’m part of the scenery,” so when you bring your visiting relatives through town, “you’ve


got to go see the crazy guy on the creek.” Ketchikan got 157 inches of precipitation this past year, which made it another good year for artmaking. Troll is happily steeped in and perpetually fascinated by Northwest native culture, Mother Nature and her humbler creatures. When asked what he aims to give people via his art, Troll said he hopes to get humans interested in “the vastly under-appreciated” fish such as Pacific spiny lumpsuckers. These babycarrot-size fish are similar to puffers, in that they inhale water or air to inflate their bodies like minute balloons. In the larger picture, Troll paints to share his sense of wonder about the world, and about our place in it. Among his books on this theme is Sharkabet: A Sea of Sharks from A to Z, which Troll will discuss in another presentation Wednesday morning at Franklin Ele-

And for the backstory, Troll will tell the tale of how he came to be an artist and how he ended up, against expectation, in Alaska. “Basically,” he said, “this is a slide show of the funny stuff.”
