The price of freedom: River muck curbs fish BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK â€” A rain-swollen Elwha River is now flowing freely for the first time in a century, triggering the first big release of some of the 20 million cubic yards of sediment stuck behind whatâ€™s left of Glines Canyon Dam. While scientists are giddy over the long-anticipated and well-planned flush of Lake Mills sediment, coho and chum salmon are ducking for cover since the riverâ€™s turbidity has spiked sevenfold since summer. â€œTheyâ€™re headed to the closest clean water they can get to,â€? said Robert Elofson, river restoration director for the Lower Elwha Klallam tribe. â€œTheyâ€™re having trouble, but that was expected to happen. Thatâ€™s why we have the hatchery and rearing channel.â€? Elofson said the water is still too murky to tell whether the sediment is killing fish. Olympic National Park spokeswoman Rainey McKenna said the riverâ€™s turbidity â€” the water cloudiness caused by suspended particles which is measured in formazin nephelometric units â€” peaked at 3,500 fnu last week compared with

PORT TOWNSEND â€” The general election race for Jefferson County Superior Court judge between Quilcene lawyer Peggy Ann Bierbaum and Port Townsend lawyer Keith Harper has generated $64,784, making it the most expensive general election race in Jefferson and Clallam counties, according to state Public Disclosure Commission records. They are running for the seat being vacated by Craddock Verser, who is retiring. Harper, 59, has raised $43,949. He has contributed $20,000 to his own campaign and loaned it $10,000. â€œMy wife and I made a commitment,â€? Harper said. â€œI was going to do whatever I had to do to win. â€œWe took this on as a major commitment.â€? Bierbaum, 55, has contributed
$7,250 to her campaign. Both have spent campaign money on print advertising and signs, and have intensively doorbelling, they said. Bierbaum also produced an interview she posted on YouTube that runs regularly on Port Townsend TV, she said.

Hunter killed in fall was climbing down tree BY LEAH LEACH PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND â€” A 66-year-old Silverdale man who suffered a fatal fall while deer hunting near Tarboo Lake last week likely slipped and crashed to the ground while trying to climb down from his perch in the upper branches of a large cedar, the chief criminal deputy of the Jefferson County Sheriffâ€™s Office said.
Gerald Dizon fell as far as 25 to 30 feet from the tree where he was sitting in a lookout watching for game, Chief Criminal Deputy Joe Nole said Friday. He was pronounced dead at 1:01 p.m. Oct. 27 while medics fought to save his life. That was hours after he phoned his wife, Gale, to say he was hurt, a call that launched a search for him.

Passings By The Associated Press
ARTHUR R. JENSEN, 89, an educational psychologist who ignited an international firestorm with a 1969 article suggesting that the gap in intelligence-test scores between black and white students might be rooted in genetic differences between the races, died Oct. 22 at his home in Kelseyville, Calif. His death was confirmed by the University of California, Berkeley, where he was an Professor emeritus Jensen professor in circa 1960 the Graduate School of Education. Professor Jensen was deeply interested in differential psychology, a field whose central question — What makes people behave and think differently from one another? — strikes at the heart of the age-old nature-nurture debate. Because of his empirical work in the field on the quantification of general intelligence, he was regarded by many colleagues as one of the most important psychologists of his day. But a wider public remembered him almost exclusively for his 1969 article “How Much Can We Boost I.Q. and Achievement?” Published in The Harvard Educational Review, a scholarly journal, the article quickly became — and remains even now — one of the most controversial in psychology.
In the article, Professor Jensen posited two types of learning ability. Level I, associative ability, entailed the rote retention of facts. Level II, conceptual ability, involved abstract thinking and problem-solving. This type, he argued, was roughly equivalent to general intelligence, denoted in psychology by the letter “g.” In administering I.Q. tests to diverse groups of students, Professor Jensen found Level I ability to be fairly consistent across races. When he examined Level II ability, by contrast, he found it more prevalent among whites than blacks, and still more prevalent among Asians than whites. Drawing on these findings, Professor Jensen argued that general intelligence is largely genetically determined, with cultural forces shaping it only to a small extent. For this reason, he wrote in 1969, compensatory education programs like Head Start are doomed to fail. While some observers praised Professor Jensen as a scientist unafraid to

go where the data led him, others called him a racist. He continued to be heckled at speaking engagements throughout his career. He was burned in effigy on some college campuses and received death threats; for a time, he was accompanied by bodyguards. The idea that intelligence cleaved along racial lines quickly became known as Jensenism, and its merits were the subject of heated public discussion for years afterward.

Dinner was served at a long table set in the Nelsons’ large living room. Seating followed roll call by class secretary Ethel Geist Donohue. One of their teachers, Thomas Geisness, also attended and complimented the class on its remarkable virility and close-knit spirit. Of the 26 members of the Class of 1918, 16 still reside in or around Port Angeles.
1962 (50 years ago) A total of 1,968,443 people visited Olympic National this year through Oct. 31, Chief Ranger Stanley McComas reported.
That represents a 37.8 percent increase over the first 10 months of 1961, McComas said. Meanwhile, park staffers are still cleaning up damage from the Oct. 12 storm. The restroom at Heart o’ the Hills has been repaired after being extensively damaged by a tree that was blown down during the storm. “It will take us all winter to completely clear out the damage from the storm,” McComas said.

A3 Briefly: Nation Border agents in contact prior to shootings PHOENIX — A new report into a shooting that left a U.S. Border Patrol agent dead says three agents responding to an alarm were apparently in radio contact as they approached from opposite directions before opening fire on each other in the Arizona desert. A sheriff’s report released Friday says it was a clear night and the agents were on patrol separately when the call came Ivie in at about 1:30 a.m. Oct. 2 that an underground sensor aimed at detecting smugglers and illegal immigrants had been tripped. Agent Nicholas Ivie, 30, approached on foot from the north. The two other agents walked in from the south when Ivie apparently opened fire, eliciting a deadly barrage of return fire from his colleagues. Ivie was killed, another agent was wounded and the third was uninjured. According to the preliminary report by the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office, which is investi-
gating the case along with the FBI, the uninjured agent later told authorities “they were in radio communication with Agent Ivie.”

‘Revenge’ at the end of the campaign trail Obama, Romney stump for votes in battlegrounds THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
MENTOR, Ohio — Reaching for the finish line, Republican Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama embarked Saturday on the final 72-hour haul of their long, grinding quest for victory, swatting at one another over what should motivate Americans to vote, which candidate they can trust and offering dueling pictures of what the next four years should bring. Romney sprinted through a New Hampshire-to-Iowa-to-Colorado day, faulting Obama for telling supporters a day earlier that voting would be their “best revenge.” “Vote for ‘revenge?’” the GOP candidate asked in New Hampshire, oozing incredulity. “Let me tell you what I’d like to tell you: Vote for love of country.
“It is time we lead America to a better place.” The Republican nominee sounded the same message in Iowa and released a TV ad carrying the Obama same message. Obama, campaigning in the uber-battleground of Ohio, countered with a final reminder that Tuesday’s election is “not just a choice between two candidates or two parties, it’s a choice between two different visions for America.” The president offered himself as the candidate voters can trust, renewing his criticism of Romney for what he said were misleading ads suggesting that automakers were shifting U.S. jobs to China. “You want to know that your president means what he says and says what he means,” Obama told a 4,000-person crowd in northeast Ohio. “And after four years as president, you know me.”
The president urged voters in an overflow room to shepherd their friends, neighbors and girlfriends to the polls to vote early, tacking on this very prac-
tical caveat: “You should convince them to vote for me before you drag them off to the polls.” On Friday in Springfield, Ohio, Obama added the phrase: “Voting is the best revenge.” Campaign spokesman Jennifer Psaki said Saturday that the president’s revenge comment was nothing more than a reminder that if voters think Romney’s policies are “a bad deal for the middle class, then you have power, you can go to the voting booth and cast your ballot.” Whatever their motivation, 27 million Americans already have cast ballots in early voting around the country.
Briefly: World Rebels launch attack on key Syrian airbase BEIRUT — Syrian rebels launched a dawn assault Saturday on a strategic airbase in the north of the country, trying to disrupt strikes by warplanes and helicopters that pound rebel-held towns and give the regime of President Bashar Assad a major edge in the civil war. The assault, reported by activists, comes a day before the start of a key international conference in Qatar at which the United States and its allies aim to reorganize the opposition’s political leadership and unite its ranks. Rebel forces attacked the Taftanaz airbase early Saturday morning in fighting with government forces that continued into the afternoon, the antiregime activist Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. Joining Syrian rebels in the attack were fighters from Jabhat al-Nusra, an al-Qaidainspired Islamic militant group made up of foreign jihadis, according to the Observatory.
Baseball player killed SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic — Police say they have arrested three men suspected in the killing of former major league pitcher Pascual Perez during an attempted home robbery. Another two suspects remain at large. Criminal investigations director Maximo Baez said Sat-
urday that one of the men arrested has confessed that he and four others planned to rob Perez’s home. Police say they have Perez identified the two remaining fugitives. Perez was found Thursday with severe head wounds in a town west of the capital of Santo Domingo. He later died. Police believe the robbers sought to steal the $2,400 that Perez received monthly as pension for his 11-season career in the major leagues.
Atomic team paid TOKYO — Four members of a Japanese government team that sets atomic reactor safety standards received funding from utility companies or nuclear manufacturers, raising questions about their neutrality in the wake of last year’s tsunamitriggered disaster. The Nuclear Regulation Authority said Friday that Nagoya University Professor Akio Yamamoto received 27.14 million yen ($339,000) during the past three years for research on reactors. That included 6.28 million yen ($79,000) from a subsidiary of Tokyo Electric Power Co., the utility that runs the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant that suffered meltdowns last year. The authority said three others on the six-member standards team received industry funding. The Associated Press

U.S. steps in with gas for storm-battered New York THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK — More New Yorkers got power Saturday for the first time since superstorm Sandy struck the region, but frustrations mounted over gasoline shortages as refueling sites turned into traffic jams of hornhonking confusion. Gas rationing went into effect in northern New Jersey, while crowds lined up at free fuel distribution sites in New York’s boroughs, where a limit of 10 gallons per person was imposed. New York officials then said emergency vehicles had the priority over the public. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo had announced that the 5,000-gallon trucks from the Defense Department would set up the emergency mobile gas stations at five locations around the New York City metropolitan area. “Do not panic. I know there is
anxiety about fuel,” he said. The scene was more orderly in hard-hit Staten Island, where a line of cars stretched for two miles under the supervision of police and National Guard troops. An additional 400 people were on foot, carrying gas cans. As gas rationing went into effect at noon in northern New Jersey, police began enforcing rules to allow only motorists with odd-numbered license plates to refuel. Those with even-numbered plates must wait until today.
Still in the dark About 2.6 million people remained without power in six states after Sandy came ashore Monday night. About 900,000 people still didn’t have electricity in the New York metropolitan area, including about 550,000 on Long Island, Cuomo said.
About 80 percent of New York City’s subway service has been restored, he added. The storm forced cancellation of today’s New York City Marathon. Mayor Michael Bloomberg reversed himself Friday and yielded to mounting criticism about running the race, which starts on Staten Island and wends through all five of the city’s boroughs. Bloomberg, who as late as Friday afternoon insisted the world’s largest marathon should go on as scheduled, changed course shortly afterward amid intensifying opposition from the city comptroller, the Manhattan borough president and sanitation workers unhappy they had volunteered to help storm victims but were assigned to the race instead. The mayor said he would not want “a cloud to hang over the race or its participants.”

THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR of Arcata Main Street, a nonprofit organization that sponsors promotions in downtown Arcata, Calif., has been arrested for allegedly running a commercial marijuana growing operation in her home in neighboring Eureka. Jennifer Brook Koopman, 38, was arrested Friday at her workplace in Arcata after police raided her home and found 267 pot plants, according to the Humboldt County Drug Task Force. Because Koopman and her 7-yearold daughter lived in the home, charges against her also include child endangerment due to electrical fire hazards associated with the operation.

Atlantis reached its new home at the Kennedy Space Center’s main tourist stop close to sundown following a daylong, 10-mile crawl. A couple dozen astronauts spanning NASA’s Mercury, Gemini, Apollo and space shuttle programs — moonwalkers included — welcomed Atlantis to its new $100 million exhibit, still under construction.
THREE SYRIAN TANKS entered the demilitarized zone in the Golan Heights on Saturday, Israel said, raising concerns that violence from Syria’s civil war could heat up a long-quiet frontier that has not seen such an incursion in nearly 40 years. Israel complained to U.N. peacekeepers present in the area, a relatively low-key response that suggested it did not see the Syrian armor as an immediate threat. But the entry marks the most serious spillover of Syria’s turmoil to date at the frontier, where stray ordnance has exploded on the Israeli side in the past.
CZECH ARCHAEOLOGISTS ARCHAEOLOGISTS HAVE unearthed the 4,500-year-old tomb of a Pharaonic princess south of Cairo, in a finding that suggests other undiscovered tombs might be in the area, an official from Egypt’s antiquities ministry said Saturday. Mohammed El-Bialy, who heads the ministry’s Egyptian and Greco-Roman antiquities department, said Princess Shert Nebti’s burial site is surrounded by the tombs of four high officials dating to around 2,500 B.C. in the Abu Sir complex near the famed step pyramid of Saqqara. Inscriptions in the tomb indicate that she was the daughter of King Men Salbo.

Forks fire sparked by electrical glitch Residents tie notes to fence at site of IOOF hall, empty store BY PAUL GOTTLIEB PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
FORKS — Grieving residents are tying remembrance notes to a fence protecting the charred remnants of two historic buildings at the corner of North Forks and East Division streets that were consumed by fire last week. Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives investigators have determined that an electrical malfunction sparked the Monday morning fire that destroyed the International Order of Odd Fellows hall and the former Dazzled by Twilight souvenir store, Clallam County Fire District No. 1 Chief Phil Arbeiter told Peninsula Daily News last week. The buildings were vacant when the fire was reported at
3:45 a.m. Monday. City officials were unable Friday to estimate when demolition crews could begin removing the debris. Arbeiter, whose department received verbal notification last week that the fire was not arson, said Friday he is awaiting a written report from the agency.
officials said. Arbeiter said ATF has asked for statements from firefighters who stanched the blaze by about 6 a.m. Monday and does not expect the report until after the agency has reviewed those statements. The fire “wasn’t criminal, so it might not be a big rush for them,” Arbeiter said. “It could take them longer.”
Insurance companies Explosion Investigators believe the blaze started when water compromised an electrical conduit on the first floor of the city-owned IOOF building, causing an explosion, Arbeiter said. “It can sound like a quarter- or half-stick of dynamite, depending on how much water is inside the box,” he said. Activities surrounding the future of the corner will proceed on two tracks, city
City Attorney Rod Fleck said Friday that insurance companies will now have their turn at reviewing the fire scene. The IOOF hall was insured for $3.7 million under a policy with the Association of Washington City Risk Management Services. The West Olympic Council of the Arts holds the insurance for the Rainforest Art Center that occupied the second floor of the IOOF
Sequim licensing site opens Monday PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
SEQUIM — Residents will no longer have to leave town to license their vehicles. The Sequim Licensing Depot will open at 8 a.m. Monday at 645 W. Washington St., Suite 2, said Clallam County Auditor Patty Rosand. Sequim residents haven’t had a licensing office in town since May, when the county contract with subagent Karen Shewbert was terminated. Suzan Mansfield will operate the office under a subagent contract with the Clallam County auditor, who is the agent for the Department of Licensing in Clallam County. Mansfield has previous licensing experience — she once operated the subagency in Sequim, Rosand said — and has been training at the Clallam County Courthouse
since September. The new office will offer full licensing services Mondays through Fri- Rosand days from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and also will be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays. “The addition of Saturday service will be a wonderful customer convenience to the residents of the Olympic Peninsula,” Rosand said in a statement. “Not only will this allow citizens who work all week to obtain licenses on the weekend, but it will be an asset to the many visitors who come to the Peninsula on weekends to enjoy our area and need to license a vehicle or vessel.” Two full-time employees — Leslie Sommerville and Phil Libbot — will work with
Mansfield, Rosand said. County Licensing Manager Lila Duncan will be in Sequim during the first week to assist the establishment of the new licensing subagency. Shewbert operated the Sequim Vehicle/Vessel Licensing Office for 12 years before Rosand terminated her contract and closed the office. Shewbert appealed the termination to the Department of Licensing, which formed a dispute review board that heard testimony during a two-day hearing in Port Angeles in June. The board upheld the termination over what Rosand said were constant disagreements regarding Shewbert’s accounting practices, including her refusal to use accounting software compatible with that used by the Auditor’s Office. Phone the office at 360683-8375.

Perez and his wife, who also worked in Tienda Latina, have three children, ages 5, 8 and 11. The store, in existence since 1991, catered to a largely Guatemalan and Mexican clientele, many of whom pick salal for a living. It featured specialty bread and imported groceries, including soups and canned beans, as well as Spanish-language newspapers and natural medicines. Perez also would wire customers’ money to other countries. “The big issue they are facing is, what are we going to do now?” Velasquez said. “Now they are unemployed.”
Mayor Bryon Monohon issued a statement Friday asking for “patience and support” from Forks residents. He asked them to “respect the security measures taken” to prevent the public from entering the property.

Local Red Cross chapter sends 12 in Sandy’s wake Jefferson counties. The death toll from the massive storm that hit the East Coast on Monday had risen to more than 100 this weekend, and 2.68 million homes and businesses were without power by Saturday morning, down from a peak of 8.5 million. It is estimated that more than 60 million people were affected by the devastation. “This response to Sandy is just getting started,” Kelley said. “The storm has left devastation in its wake, and we will be helping people for weeks to come.” Trained volunteers, especially those with specialized skills, will be asked about their availability in the coming weeks, Gruss said. Volunteers are always welcome, but they must be prepared before they can be deployed, Kelley said. Intake procedures take about a month, and volunteers must have a minimum of three training sessions.

SEQUIM — Twelve trained volunteers with the Olympic Peninsula chapter of the American Red Cross are helping out on the East Coast in the wake of superstorm Sandy. Nine of them left Thursday and Friday, said Stephanie Gruss, Red Cross spokeswoman, adding that deployments are generally two to three weeks long. Deployed to shelters in New Jersey are Colin Anable of Nordland; Shirley Williams, Don Dybeck and Diane Bommer of Port Townsend; Roger Drake and Ryan Ollerman of Port Angeles; and Zane Beall of Sequim. Frank Keener and Denise Bergeron of Port Angeles headed for shelters in New York state.

The Red Cross already has served more than 100,800 meals and snacks, and mobilized more than 2,300 disaster workers and almost 200 emergency vehicles so far, and more are being deployed. Continued help will be very costly, Kelley said. “We ask everyone to support us as we help people recover from this massive storm,” she said.

Sequim burglary victim offers advice Rash of crimes in Clallam prompts caution by police BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
A 68-year-old Dungeness woman who chased two burglars from her home last month offered advice for area residents Friday. â€œStop thinking youâ€™re in Sequim,â€? Isabelle Dunlop said. â€œStart thinking you are in an area where these things
happen.â€? Dunlop, who lost at least $15,000 in jewelry and other items in October when two men broke into her home through a tiny 10-inch by 12-inch window, said she is angry and wants the â€œscruffyâ€? men, who she figured were between the ages of 30 and 40, caught and punished. The burglars took small
items, electronic, and decades worth of jewelry Dunlop said she received as gifts, or which were valued personal items that she could easily describe in detail. â€œI wouldnâ€™t be so mad if they just took TVs. They took things I canâ€™t replace,â€? she said in a Friday interview. A rash of burglaries in unincorporated areas of Clallam County have homeowners looking for their cherished belongings, and pushed community groups to schedule a citizensâ€™ meeting Friday to address the burglaries.
In 2011, there were 224 burglaries between Jan. 1 and Sept. 31 in unincorporated areas of the county and 284 in the same time period this year â€” a rise of 60 burglaries, Benedict said. There also was a 5 percent increase from 2010-2011, he said. In October, the Clallam County Sheriffâ€™s Office reported 11 burglaries in the unincorporated Sequim area, 10 near Port Angeles, and two in West End areas, according to CrimeReports. com, a website that tracks police reports.
During the same time period there were three reported burglaries within the Sequim city limit, and 22 in Port Angeles. In October, Port Angeles Deputy Police Chief Brian Smith said the burglary rate in Port Angeles was steady or a bit down. â€œWhether we have 15 burglaries or 22, itâ€™s still a big problem to us,â€? Smith said Friday. The Police Department is always trying to reach a rate of zero burglaries each month, he said.

PA to vote on code of ethical conduct BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — A code of ethical conduct that would lay out how City Council members are to behave while interacting with each other and representing the city in public will be up for a vote at Tuesday’s council meeting. Discussions on an augmented code of conduct stem from a complaint Jack Slowriver, the former Clallam County Democratic Party vice chair, filed against City Councilman Max Mania in August. City Council members reviewed and suggested changes to a draft version of the proposed policy presented by City Manager Dan McKeen at a Aug. 31 work session and, after a first reading of the document at the council’s Oct. 16 meeting, will vote to adopt or reject it when it meets at 6 p.m. in the council chambers at City Hall, 321 E. Fifth St. Mayor Cherie Kidd said Saturday that she is pleased with the changes McKeen has made, adding that she doesn’t expect any other major alterations to be made through discussions at Tuesday’s meeting. “It’s so much more complete, thorough and comprehensive then anything we’ve ever had,” Kidd said.
Earlier code The city’s previous code of conduct was simply the generalized code the state makes available for all cities to use, Kidd said, and was not specific enough to prove useful to Port Angeles. Kidd said the two complaints in August against Mania, one by Slowriver and another by City Councilwoman Brooke Nelson, showed that the city needed a codified way to handle complaints that allow council members to delegate discussions on an alleged code of conduct violation to a separate body, thereby allowing the council to handle city matters. Slowriver accused Mania of “unethical” behavior over her not supporting the
Democratic candidacy of Mania’s wife, Dale Holiday, for Clallam County commissioner in the Aug. 7 primary election. Holiday finished third in the “top two” primary. Separately, Nelson accused Mania of attempting to “undermine or sabotage positions formally adopted by the council” in correspondence to opponents of Nippon Paper Industries USA’s project to expand its biomass cogeneration plant. “We’re supposed to be able to get past [complaints] and deal with the people’s business,” Kidd said. “We’re not there to fight with each other. We’re there to serve the people of Port Angeles.” Nelson declined to comment on the proposed code of conduct. In an email, Mania said: “I don’t really have anything to add to the conversation on this subject.”
from a pre-existing pool of nine applicants. City Council members would chose by a supermajority three board members from the nine-applicant pool, applications for which would be accepted at the first City Council meeting in odd-numbered years. This applications process represents one of the major changes from the originally proposed policy, McKeen said. The original draft had the mayor appointing each of the board of ethics members. Kidd said she thinks the augmented application process is important so decisions regarding the makeup of the board “don’t rest on the shoulders of one individual.”
“The appearance of fairness is critical here, absolutely critical,” Kidd said. Under the proposal, complaints alleging any violation of the code of conduct would be filed with the city clerk and made a matter of public record. Once a complaint were filed, the board would investigate it and recommend to the City Council on a penalty if it finds the elected or appointed official to be in violation of the code of conduct. The City Council would have the sole authority to hand down penalties, which include removal from city boards, commissions, or appointed bodies and various verbal and written statements admonishing the individual found to be in violation of the code of conduct. The proposed policy stops short of allowing the removal of a City Council member from office, though the mayor or deputy mayor could be removed if found to be in violation. Kidd said she is satisfied with the proposed penalties. “I’m not willing to take it further,” Kidd said.
City employees, as opposed to elected City Council members, have their own codes of conduct and a process for determination if violations have occurred, McKeen said in a Saturday interview. McKeen said the code of conduct will not be applied to complaints filed prior to its adoption. McKeen said any Port Angeles resident can file a complaint against a City Council member or councilappointed board or commission member. The proposed policy is not expected to cost the city additional money, he added. In addition to establishing a laundry list of standards of conduct — which includes provisions against conflicts of interest for council members when voting on city matters and requirements on behavior when representing the city in public — the proposed policy creates a three-member board of ethics that would hear complaints filed against City Council mem________ bers or city board or comReporter Jeremy Schwartz can mission appointees. be reached at 360-452-2345, ext.

City Council to hold hearing on property tax changes Tuesday BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — Property taxes could go down for some Port Angeles residents under a proposal before the City Council, say city officials. City Council members will hold a public hearing on proposed property tax changes and 2013 revenue sources at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in their chambers at Port Angeles City Hall, 321 East Fifth St. The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. The Tuesday public hearing will be continued to the Nov. 20 City Council meeting, when council members will vote on the proposed property tax adjustments. City Manager Dan McKeen is proposing a 1 percent property tax increase, according to the city’s 2013 preliminary budget, which is expected to bring about $4.2 million into city coffers in 2013. The $4.2 million includes the 1 percent increase permitted by state law. That increase is expected to bring in about $41,000 more compared to last year, according to the preliminary city budget.
Angeles would pay, under the current proposal, $500 in property taxes to the city. This is a decrease of $13, or 2 percent, from the same homeowner’s 2012 city property tax bill. McKeen has presented a 2013 operating budget with $18.7 million in the general fund, which pays for the majority of the costs associated with the city’s departments. That figure is about 5 percent, or about $1 million, less than the general fund amount in the city’s final 2012 budget. The city’s total operating budget for 2013 is expected to be $99.7 million, up nearly 4 percent from last year, primarily because of increases in city electricity costs. The general fund fits
inside the city’s total operating budget, McKeen said. The $99.7 million includes all the costs associated with the city’s utilities, such as electricity, and is higher than last year to reflect the increase in utility rates City Council members approved in October, McKeen explained.

Dressing up dogs for success I SUPPOSE IT is a sign that I am finally being taken seriously by the literary community — have, in fact, risen to the pinnacle of my profession — that I was asked to judge a Halloweencostume contest for dogs. To be entirely accuW. Bruce rate, I wasn’t Cameron an actual judge. Apparently, I’m not qualified to render a decision on matters such as which miniature poodle looks most like Batman. Instead, I staffed a microphone during the competition and made announcements like: “Please be reminded that contestants are not allowed to pee inside the contest arena.” I’ll bet you that’s not the sort of thing you hear at a Miss America Pageant. The contest itself was held to benefit a charitable organization
called Nikeno’s Second Chances, which provides training for pets being adopted from animal shelters. Abandoned animals often have behavioral issues that need attention before they are suitable for placement in people’s homes. Unfortunately, Nikeno’s does not address behavioral issues in teenagers, so don’t try dropping them off. Some of the costumes were very elaborate — three wiener dogs, as an example, came dressed as wieners. They could barely walk because each was laughing so hard at how the other two were dressed. The contestants were supposed to parade in a circle, stopping in front of me so I could interview them about world peace, but a lot of the dogs veered off because they were distracted by the need to chew on their costumes. A Labrador retriever I talked to had no comment about international politics, but his expression clearly communicated, “I

wish I weren’t dressed like a chicken.” Other animals were more enthusiastic. A white German shepherd dressed as Pegasus happily pranced into the ring, as if to say: “Look at me! I have wings — plus, I just passed the snack table and swiped some cupcakes!” A golden retriever dressed as Britney Spears looked thrilled to be out of rehab. And a pug in a lobster costume glared at people, as if saying: “You think pugs are ugly? Not compared to lobsters, we’re not!” An animal psychic was on hand to look into the minds of the dogs and translate their feelings into words for the humans, such as, “Hey, how come Pegasus got to have cupcakes?” She reported that the Labrador would rather eat chickens than dress like them, which anyone could tell because the dog was lying on the floor with its eyes closed so it wouldn’t have to look at itself.
She also predicted that my career as a writer would go better next year because how could you do worse than hosting a dog costume party? Actually, despite the fact that I didn’t see how this was going to get me short-listed for a Pulitzer prize, I enjoyed being the master of ceremonies for the event and also eating the cupcakes that Pegasus couldn’t reach. When the time came to announce winners, everyone was really excited, except the contestants. Some of the categories seemed suspiciously as if they had been created on the spot — the mixed breed dressed as a chili pepper, for example, really didn’t have any competition for Spiciest Costume, unless maybe you counted the basset hound in a bikini. Two Shelties were dressed as weary travelers — to make their costumes more realistic, they lost their suitcases in Cleveland.

For Rohrer For more than 36 years, I have worked in the courtrooms of Clallam County as a judge and a lawyer. I know which judges work efficiently with dedication to the post, which judges are courteous and wise, and which judges are able to efficiently administer an office and a budget. Behind the popular vision of a judge sitting on the bench, there exists myriad tasks the public rarely sees. In many respects, the performance of those challenges is an equally important barometer of whether a judge is competent. Judge Erik Rohrer has served as a “judge,” with all the responsibilities and tasks associated, since 2001. His record is impeccable, his service to the Clallam County community extraordinary. Judge Rohrer and his wife give freely of their time and finances to chari-

table causes. He is a bright, contemplative and courteous judge. Most important, he is a serious student of the law, issuing decisions that are reasoned, fair and just. The Clallam County Superior Court torch is about to be passed to a new generation of legal minds. The public has the unique opportunity to elect a candidate who is prepared in every respect to “hit the ground running.” Both candidates are respected gentlemen, but in this race, Judge Erik Rohrer is clearly the uniquely qualified and experienced choice. John Doherty, Beaver
For Rohrer I have known both Judge Eric Rohrer and Chris Melly for 15 years. They are both honorable men and excellent lawyers. The most important distinction, however, is their relative trial experience. Superior Court is a very
busy, demanding trial court. The successful candidate will be expected to understand decades of case law, court rules and the rules of evidence on the day they are sworn in. A mastery of these subjects can be accomplished only through years of trial practice. Judge Rohrer has years of trial court experience as the director of the Attorney General’s Office here in Port Angeles. Eleven years ago, he was first appointed by the county commissioners and subsequently elected to be the presiding District Court No. 2 judge. As the presiding judge, Judge Rohrer has also had the responsibilities of administering the court, preparing budgets and managing personnel issues. Both candidates have had very successful careers. Mr. Melly has done an excellent job as the county’s civil attorney, but Judge Rohrer’s experience as a
trial attorney and a District Court judge makes him the clear choice to be our next Superior Court judge. He has the experience to assume the responsibilities of a Superior Court judge on day one. Rick Porter, Port Angeles Porter is Clallam County District Court No. 1 judge.

STARTING LAST JUNE, when it was clear that Mitt Romney would be the Republican presidential nominee, the informal 24-hour Peninsula Poll at www.peninsuladailynews. com asked at the beginning of each month for a presidential preference. The results of the admittedly unscientific poll — it reflects the opinions of only those online users who choose to participate — bounce back and forth (the percentages don’t add up to 100 because “undecided” isn’t shown). As with all the other polls, we need to wait for Tuesday’s real one that counts. Rex Wilson, executive editor

My point is, don’t start something new with beggar’s money until you can provide for what you already have.

United Way Your article [“United Way Could Lose PA Funding,” PDN, Oct. 29] made me sorry for scattering at least $2,000 to 11 different political campaigns this year that could have gone to our needy through social services of Port Angeles. If many of us had not made the same “mistake,” maybe each of us would have had less mail to throw in our trash, seen fewer TV ads and, with the exception of a couple of local contests, had the same election outcomes. Since we are all in this together, those of you with similar feelings may like to now share in “makeup” donations with me to some social service like the United Way. Thanks to you volunteers for helping those we haven’t yet met. Glenn A. Harper, Port Angeles

PORT ANGELES — The state’s plan to manage the Japan tsunami debris expected to inundate beaches, including those in Clallam and Jefferson counties, this winter will be discussed Wednesday at a public meeting of the state Marine Debris Task Force. The meeting, at 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Port Angeles Senior Center, 328 E. Seventh St., will be the public’s first opportunity to address the North Olympic Peninsula’s specific needs and concerns with the state task force.

The earthquake and tsunami claimed nearly 20,000 lives, destroyed homes and structures, and swept 5 million tons of debris into the Pacific Ocean. An estimated 70 percent of the debris sank near Japan’s shore, while the remaining 1.5 million tons of debris entered ocean currents. Beach-goers who encounter potentially hazardous debris should not touch or attempt to move it. Hazardous items should be reported to the state hotline at 855-922-6278. The state Department of Fish and Wildlife will respond to possible invasive species attached to debris.

SEATTLE — An 18-yearold man has been charged with assault after being accused of causing a bonfire explosion that burned three other people. KOMO News reported that the students were celebrating the end of high school by burning homework in a bonfire at Seattle’s Alki beach in June. Authorities said Marshall Herrick tossed an envelope full of fuel onto the bonfire, causing the explosion. Herrick was also hurt. According to students, the event was meant to be drug- and alcohol-free, but witnesses told police that Herrick appeared intoxicated when he sparked the explosion.

PT ends year with loss Nooksack rolls over Redskins BY LEE HORTON PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND — Port Townsend’s football season ended with a 41-7 loss to Nooksack Valley on Friday night at Memorial Field. Senior running back Mitiku Little played well in his final game for the Redskins, breaking off a few long runs and scoring on an 8-yard touchdown scamper in the third quarter. Little ran for 77 yards and had one reception for 8 yards. He accounted for 98 of Port Townsend’s 162 total yards. Little was especially productive in the second half in which he gained most of his rushing yards. “He hit those holes, didn’t he?” Redskins coach Nick Snyder said after the game. “We started running our power play [in the second half], and actually ran the ball effectively.”

But it wasn’t quite enough to make the playoffs in the Northwest Football League North Division, while a couple of South Division teams — Quilcene and Evergreen Lutheran — that the Loggers defeated earlier this season remain in the playoff picture.

Clallam Bay 42, Rainier Christ. 32 CLALLAM BAY — The Bruins ended their season on a positive note thanks to contributions from seniors playing their last game and players who will be the future of the program. Seniors Ryan Willis and Drew Goplen-Dean had dominant defensive performances. Willis had 12 tackles from his defensive back position. On offense, he ran for 19 yards and completed 2 of 3 passes as the quarterback. “He played his best game on defense in his last game,” Clallam Bay coach Cal Ritter said. “He also led us emotionally.” Goplen-Dean tallied 11 tackles and two sacks.
The Bruins’ other two seniors, Austin Ritter and Jeremy Rock, both missed the game due to injuries. On offense, Clallam Bay racked up 658 rushing yards, with juniors Matt Mohr and Calvin Ritter gaining 588 of those yards. Mohr ran 35 times for 385 yards and Calvin Ritter picked up 203 yards on 24 carriers. Cal Ritter is excited to have those two returning next year. “They work well together and complement each other,” Cal Ritter said. “Either player can block and catch. Basically, I have two big, fast fullbacks.” Calvin Ritter, who is Cal Ritter’s son, has been an especially nice discovery the late season. He had never played running back until injuries to Mohr, Rock and Austin Ritter forced him there last month. “Sometimes you don’t know the best place for a player until somebody else gets injured,” Cal Ritter said. Cal Ritter said the offensive line, led by Goplen-Dean, Kelly Gregory and Joe Maneval, opened up big holes for the
running backs. After leading 22-12 at the half, the Bruins pulled away with a 20-point third quarter. “They came out after halftime and said, ‘let’s just do this,” Cal Ritter said. “I didn’t even need to say anything to them. They talked each other up. I’m really proud of how we finished the season up.” Mohr also had 18 tackles and Calvin Ritter had eight tackles and two sacks. Casey Randall contributed 14 tackles. “The defense was swarming,” Cal Ritter said. “There weren’t a lot of solo tackles, which is what I like to see.” Clallam Bay 42, Rainier Christian 32 Rainier Christian 6 6 14 6— 32 Clallam Bay 16 6 20 0— 42 First Quarter CB—Ryan Willis 6 run (Kelly Gregory pass from Willis) CB—Casey Randall 32 run (Joe Maneval pass from Willis) Second Quarter CB—Calvin Ritter 25 run (pass failed) Third Quarter CB—Matt Mohr 64 run (run failed) CB—Calvin Ritter 3 run (Mohr run) CB—Calvin Ritter 23 run (pass failed) Individual Stats Rushing— CB: Mohr 35-385, Calvin Ritter 24-203, Randall 4-51, Willis 3-19.

Junior Matt Cain had week’s five-overtime loss to two long kick returns and Chimacum. recovered Dillon Ralls’ Freshman David Sua,
meanwhile, had another nice game filling in for Russell at fullback, and he had an interception on defense. With only four seniors graduating — Little, Ralls, Nolan Arthur and Clint Guilford — next year’s expectations are justifiably high for Port Townsend, which came into 2012 will two consecutive winless seasons. “The future is bright for Redskin football, that’s for dang sure,” Snyder said. “We lose four seniors. The eighth-grade class coming in is really good. The freshman class is loaded.
The majority of the team is coming back. Our backfield is coming back, our O-line.” Most importantly, King will be back. Not only is he Port Townsend’s best player, but also its team leader. Before the coaches talked to the team after Friday’s game, King stood in front of his teammates and implored them to be better next year. “He said that we’ve got to have every single guy give everything he’s got on every single play, and then we’d beat these guys,” Snyder said
“He’s a great leader.” Though 2013 looks good on paper, Snyder said there’s still a lot of work to put in. “You know what? These kids don’t lift weights,” he said. “Get them a year of lifting weights, try to get them to be three-sport athletes, and then do 7-on-7 — because that’s where you cultivate all your defensive backs and learn how to play good pass coverage — and then have a good summer camp, and I think we’ll be really competitive next year.”

With can-do stance on marathon, mayor misread NYC THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK — Mayor Michael Bloomberg tried to sell the New York City Marathon as a symbolic victory for the city after a devastating storm, invoking two of the biggest symbols of them all — Rudy Giuliani and 9/11. The former mayor, Bloomberg said, made the right decision by holding the marathon less than two
months after the 2001 terror attacks: “It pulled people together, and we have to find some ways to express ourselves and show our solidarity with each other.” Then, he kept talking. “You have to keep going and doing things, and you can grieve, you can cry and you can laugh all at the same time,” he said. And once again, the city cringed, hearing another
false note that renewed familiar criticism that New York’s billionaire businessman mayor is tone-deaf to suffering during a crisis.
Many upset By the time Bloomberg changed course three hours later Friday and called off the world’s largest marathon, he already had offended a passel of floodweary New Yorkers.
“He is clueless without a paddle to the reality of what everyone else is dealing with,” fumed Joan Wacks, whose waterfront condo in Staten Island was under 4 feet of water. “He’s supposed to be the mayor of all the city, but he’s really the mayor of Manhattan.” It was a rare reversal for Bloomberg, who’s known for sticking by his decisions, however unpopular. He’s
built a reputation for being an efficient, independentminded pragmatist in office, a philanthropist and public health innovator, and he has gotten praise for the city’s preparedness for the storm. In his first comments Saturday since canceling the race, Bloomberg continued to defend his belief that the event could have gone on but conceded the contro-
versy had become a distraction. “I still think that we had the resources to do both,” Bloomberg told WCBS-TV during a visit to Queens. “There are lots of people in this city — some hurt, some not. It’s a big part of our economy.” “But it was just becoming so divisive that whether it’s a good idea or not, we just don’t need the distraction.”

Dawgs finally get that road win signing day. Sankey ran four straight plays and scored from 1-yard out to give the Huskies a 21-13 lead.
Not pretty, but UW will take it
Bowl in reach
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
BERKELEY, Calif. â€” After going more than a year without a road win, Washington coach Steve Sarkisian had his players wear suits for the plane ride to drive home the message that this was a business trip. The play on the field may not have looked as good as the players did on the plane but the result did. Bishop Sankey ran for a career-high 189 yards and two touchdowns and Washington overcame four turnovers and 12 penalties for its first road win in 13 months, 21-13 over California on Friday night. â€œThat was the whole message,â€? quarterback Keith Price said. â€œWeâ€™re not here for vacation. A lot of guys were home back here playing. Thatâ€™s not what we were here for. We were here to get a win and we did that.â€? Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught eight passes for 154 yards and a touchdown for the Huskies (5-4, 3-3 Pac12), who had been outscored 145-41 in three road games this season and had lost six straight away games since beating Utah on Oct. 1, 2011. The Golden Bears (3-7, 2-5) lost for the fourth time in six games at their renovated stadium and are assured of missing out on a bowl for the second time in

Washington running back Bishop Sankey (25) scores on a 1-yard touchdown run against California during the fourth quarter in Berkeley, Calif., on Friday night. three seasons. That will only raise more questions about the status of coach Jeff Tedford, who has a 23-25 record since the start of the 2009 season. â€œIt is not something weâ€™re used to,â€? Tedford said. â€œYou work very hard, so it is always disappointing to not be able to play in the postseason. It does not happen to us often and itâ€™s not a good feeling.â€?
Cal played the game without injured star receiver Keenan Allen and then lost starting quarterback Zach Maynard to a left knee injury late in the fourth quarter. Allen might not be back this season, while Maynard is undergoing an MRI and his status is unknown. Backup Allan Bridgford drove the Bears to the 25 with just over a minute left
but he missed C.J. Anderson down the sideline on fourth-and-5 to end Calâ€™s hopes and send the Huskies home happy.
Give-aways Each team had four turnovers in a sloppy game, including three lost fumbles in a span of six plays early in the fourth quarter. An interception on the next
drive helped seal the win for Washington. Shaq Thompson intercepted a pass by Maynard near midfield and returned it 33 yards to the Cal 28. Making that play even more painful for the Bears was the fact that Thompson originally committed to play at Cal before changing his mind when top recruiter Tosh Lupoi left for Washington just weeks before
Washington needs just one win in its final three games against the bottom teams in the conference, Utah, Colorado and Washington State, to become bowl eligible. â€œWe knew we had to close it out and we knew we were on their side of the field,â€? Sankey said. â€œIt was on the o-lineâ€™s back and on the running game and I feel like we did a great job with that.â€? Cal settled for field goals twice in the third quarter after driving deep into Washington territory, which proved costly when Seferian-Jenkins made a leaping grab over the smaller Steve Williams for a 29-yard score on thirdand-goal to give the Huskies a 14-13 lead in the final minute of the third quarter. The score remained there when Cal failed to capitalize on another good chance. Maynard overthrew an open Chris Harper in the end zone and Dâ€™Amato missed wide right from 41 yards, ending a streak of 11 straight makes. â€œI donâ€™t think we executed all of our plays like we were supposed to,â€? Harper said. â€œWe had a couple of drops and fumbles. All of the turnovers, we need to try to eliminate them. When weâ€™re close to the zone we need to have the mentality that we have to get in.â€?

Nothing went right for the Cougars and Tuel, who set a school passing mark with 43 completions last week as Washington State took it down to the wire against nationally ranked Stanford. Tuel completed three of his first five passes for 41 yards Saturday, but was just 1 of 9 for 6 yards the rest of the quarter. Washington State crossed midfield three times in the first half, with one possession ending on a missed 49-yard field goal by Andrew Furney and two failed fourth-down plays. Tuel threw behind Marquess Wilson on fourth-
and-12 from the Utah 37. And on fourth-and-1 from the Utesâ€™ 34, Trevor Reilly batted down his pass at the line. Leach pulled Tuel in the third quarter and inserted Connor Halliday, but Tuel finished the game, engineering the late touchdown drive to avoid a shutout. The Utes dominated on defense despite missing top cornerback Ryan Lacy, who did not dress because of an undisclosed injury. The Cougars started 0 for 9 on third-down conversions and 0 for 2 on fourth down. Utah held a 453-255 advantage in total yards, limiting the nationâ€™s 120thranked rushing attack to minus-4 yards.

SALT LAKE CITY â€” Reggie Dunn returned a kickoff 100 yards for the third time in two weeks and John White rushed for 101 yards and two touchdowns as Utah defeated Washington State 49-6 Saturday. The loss was the sixth straight for Washington State (2-7, 0-6 Pac-12), assuring coach Mike Leach of his first losing season. Utah (4-5, 2-4) has won two straight. White also caught an 18-yard touchdown pass as Utah scored on five firsthalf possessions and led 31-0 at halftime. Dunn opened the second half with his school-record fourth career 100-yard return. He had an NCAArecord two 100-yard kickoff returns last week. Utah freshman Travis Wilson completed 17 of 21 passes for 171 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception. Washington Stateâ€™s Jeff Tuel was 23 of 45 for 232 yards, with a 5-yard Touchdown pass to Kristoff Williams on the gameâ€™s final play. Tuel was intercepted, fumbled and sacked six times. The Utes are 11-0 when White rushes for 100 yards. He had 96 by halftime, and carried the ball just three times in the second half before taking a seat in the blowout victory. Whiteâ€™s 47-yard run around right end gave Utah a 7-0 lead with 9:04 left in the first quarter. He broke two tackles on the play, including one at the 30-yard line that gave him a clear path down the sideline.
Utah took a 14-0 lead on Wilsonâ€™s 5-yard touchdown pass to Max Moala with 3:46 left in the first. The big play in the drive was Wilsonâ€™s 24-yard pass across the middle to Anthony Denham, who held on despite a high hit by Casey Locker that knocked Denhamâ€™s helmet off and drew a 15-yard personalfoul penalty. Whiteâ€™s 2-yard touchdown run pushed Utahâ€™s lead to 21-0 with 12:07 left in the half. Four minutes later, Utah led 24-0 after Reggie Toppsâ€™ interception set up Coleman Petersenâ€™s 20-yard field goal â€” his first in six games. Wilsonâ€™s 18-yard Touchdown pass to White gave Utah a 31-0 lead at the break. At halftime, Utah held a 285-116 edge in total yards, 141-15 edge in rushing yards and 7-minute edge in time of possession.
