Budget deal means state ‘will continue to operate’ BY MIKE BAKER AND RACHEL LA CORTE

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
OLYMPIA — State lawmakers reached a long-sought accord on a new state budget Thursday and hurried to schedule votes that would avert a widespread state government shutdown. At a news conference flanked by lawmakers from both parties, Gov. Jay Inslee said the Legislature hoped to approve the measure before state
employees leave work today. Political leaders declined to discuss details of the plan or to make the $33.6 billion spending proposal available for public review, as it was still being drafted Thursday afternoon. “The deal reached today makes it clear that state gov-
ernment will continue to operate,” Inslee said. Democratic Rep. Ross Hunter, the top negotiator in the House, said he and Republican Sen. Andy Hill finalized the new spending plan Thursday morning and shook hands on an agreement. Budget negotiators said they were confident the measure would swiftly make it through the Legislature, though Hunter indicated lawmakers simulta-
neously were discussing a variety of peripheral issues. “It’s a delicate agreement,” he said.
$1 billion more for schools Hill said the final plan puts an added $1 billion toward the education system in response to a state Supreme Court ruling that said lawmakers weren’t adequately funding schools. TURN

Creachbaum said she is undaunted. “I think what this last 75 years has shown us is that, as an agency and as a country, we are up to this challenge,” she said Thursday. “We’ll go forward and continue to protect our parks, and our visitors will continue to come and be inspired.” Global climate change has
the potential to have drastic, far-reaching effects on many of the country’s national parks, especially those that include glaciers within its boundaries and those whose borders include ocean coastal areas, Jarvis said.
A changing climate What this means for the 922,650-acre park depends on how the maritime environ-
ment is affected, Jarvis said, and how the wildlife that calls the park home, such as the weasel-like fisher and the Roosevelt elk, will react to a changing climate. “[The challenge is] how we adapt to that, how we mitigate, how we manage for [the impacts] and how we communicate with the public on that,” Jarvis said.

Commissioner: Litigation fear led to job shuffle BY PAUL GOTTLIEB PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — A fear of potential litigation led to the Port of Port Angeles commissioners’ approval Monday of a one-year contract for former Executive Director Jeff Robb after he resigned, Port Commissioner John Calhoun said Thursday. Robb was hired immediately after he quit. Robb’s new job pays the same $138,000 he made as top administrator, but it has fewer responsi-
bilities. Robb, 59, announced at Monday’s commissioners’ meeting that he was resigning as executive director for “serious health issues” and will retire Robb in July 2014. Those issues are related to stress, said his wife, Laura. Following Robb’s statement,
commissioners discarded his three-year contract and voted 2-1 to hire him for the unadvertised, unbudgeted position of environmental affairs director — for the same salary he has received since January as executive director. Calhoun, who along with Commissioner Paul McHugh voted for the contract, said Thursday the “dysfunctional” relationship between Robb and some members of the port’s senior staff had deteriorated to the point that it could have resulted in litigation “from either party involved in these con-
tion before it was approved. Port lawyer Dave Neupert has not returned calls for comment about the contract.

BERT STERN, 83, a commercial photographer best-known for his images of Marilyn Monroe in what became known as “The Last Sitting,” has died in New York City. Mr. Stern died Wednesday at his New York City home, said Shannah Laumeister, 43, a filmmaker who said the two were secretly married in 2009. She said the reason for keeping it secret was private. Mr. Stern shot thousands of pictures of Monroe at the Bel-Air Hotel in Los Angeles in 1962 for Vogue magazine just weeks before the movie star’s drug overdose death. They included nude and semi-nude images. The 2,500 images, including ones Monroe rejected, were published in a 1982 book titled The Last Sitting and a second book, Marilyn Monroe: The Complete Last Sitting, that came out in 2000. Mr. Stern photographed many other celebrities, too, including Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor and Truman Capote.

Mr. Parker, who rowed single sculls at the 1960 Olympics in Rome, where he finished fifth, was an omnipresent figure in rowing at both the collegiate and national levels for decades. Between 1964 and 1984, he coached men’s and women’s Olympic rowers; his 1972 men’s eight — a boat with eight rowers and a coxswain, whose prime responsibility is steering — won a silver medal. He was the head coach of the women’s Olympic rowing team in 1976, when the women’s eight earned a bronze. In 1975, he coached the first American women’s eight to compete in the world championships; the crew won a silver medal. Parker was among the best rowing coaches in collegiate history. His varsity heavyweight eights won eight national titles, earned
more than 20 championships in the prestigious Eastern Sprints, and had 22 unbeaten seasons in his 51 years as coach. His record in the allimportant Harvard-Yale regatta was 44-7, including a victory this month.

TODAY IS FRIDAY, June 28, the 179th day of 2013. There are 186 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: ■ On June 28, 1863, during the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln appointed Maj. Gen. George G. Meade the new commander of the Army of the Potomac, following the resignation of Maj. Gen. Joseph Hooker. On this date: ■ In 1778, the Revolutionary War Battle of Monmouth took place in New Jersey; it was from this battle that the legend of “Molly Pitcher” arose. ■ In 1914, Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria and his wife, Sophie, were assassinated in Sara-
jevo by Serb nationalist Gavrilo Princip, the event that sparked World War I. ■ In 1919, the Treaty of Versailles was signed in France, ending the First World War. ■ In 1962, a jury in New York awarded $3.5 million to former radio-TV personality John Henry Faulk in his libel suit against the group AWARE Inc. and two individuals who’d accused him of Communist sympathies and gotten him blacklisted. The judgment was reduced to $550,000 by an appeals court. ■ In 1978, the Supreme Court ordered the University of California-Davis Medical School to admit Allan Bakke, a white man who
argued he’d been a victim of reverse racial discrimination. ■ In 2000, seven months after he was cast adrift in the Florida Straits, Elian Gonzalez was returned to his native Cuba. ■ Ten years ago: After days of intense searching by ground and air, U.S. forces found the bodies of two soldiers missing north of Baghdad, as the toll of American dead since the start of war topped the grim milestone of 200. ■ Five years ago: Jered Weaver and Jose Arredondo of the Angels combined to keep the Los Angeles Dodgers hitless, but the Dodgers won 1-0. The Dodgers became the fifth team in modern major league history to win with-
out getting a hit, but since they didn’t have to bat in the ninth, the game did not qualify as a no-hitter. ■ One year ago: America’s historic health care overhaul narrowly survived, 5-4, an electionyear battle at the U.S. Supreme Court with the improbable help of conservative Chief Justice John Roberts. Attorney General Eric Holder became the first sitting Cabinet member held in contempt of Congress, a rebuke pushed by Republicans seeking to unearth the facts behind a bungled gun-tracking operation known as Fast and Furious. The vote was 255-67, with more than 100 Democrats boycotting.

A3 Briefly: Nation Boston suspect in marathon attack indicted BOSTON — A federal grand jury has returned a 30-count indictment against the surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was indicted Thursday on charges that included using a weapon of mass destruction and bombing a D. Tsarnaev place of public use, resulting in death. Three people were killed, and more than 260 injured in twin explosions near the finish line of the marathon. Tsarnaev’s older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was killed following a shootout with police April 19. Authorities said the brothers used shrapnel-packed pressure cooker bombs in the bombing. They are also accused of killing an MIT police officer. The U.S. Attorney’s Office said 17 of the charges against 19-year-old Tsarnaev could bring life in prison or the death penalty.
Foxx confirmation WASHINGTON — Anthony Foxx, the mayor of Charlotte, N.C., and a political ally of President Barack Obama, was unanimously confirmed by the Senate on Thursday to be transportation secretary. The Senate voted 100-0 in
favor of Foxx. As secretary, the 42-year-old Foxx will oversee the agencies within the department that regulate the nation’s aviation, rail, transit and highway systems, as well as auto safety. He replaces outgoing secretary Ray LaHood, who campaigned against distracted driving and led the Obama administration’s efforts to boost the economy by improving the nation’s transportation. The mayor won national recognition when Charlotte hosted the Democratic National Convention last year.
500th execution HUNTSVILLE, Texas — The Lone Star State marked a solemn moment in criminal justice Wednesday evening, executing its 500th inmate since it resumed carrying out capital punishment in 1982. Kimberly McCarthy, who was put to death for the murder of her 71-year-old neighbor, was also the first woman executed in the U.S. in nearly three years. McCarthy, 52, was executed for the 1997 robbery, beating and fatal stabbing of retired college psychology professor Dorothy Booth. Booth had agreed to give McCarthy a cup of sugar before she was attacked with a butcher knife and candelabra at her home in Lancaster, about 15 miles south of Dallas. Authorities said that McCarthy cut off Booth’s finger to remove her wedding ring. It was among three slayings linked to McCarthy, a former nursing home therapist who became addicted to crack cocaine.

Immigration bill sails easily through Senate Debate ends in 68-32 vote THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — The Senate wrapped up its immigration debate with senators talking a lot about themselves and their immigrant families. Leading the way were the eight senators — four Democrats and four Republicans — who spent hour after hour since January working out a compromise at some political peril. They had reason to reflect. Unlike most bipartisan gangs from Senates past, this one actually ended up producing legislation that could help resolve one of the most complex and far-reaching policy conundrums facing the country. “We cussed one another, we
cheered one another, and we wrote a bill together,” Sen. Dick Durbin D-Ill., said of negotiations. Throughout the final day of debate Thursday, senators made clear the issue was personal to them. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., teared up when recalling his father-in-law, who was born in Russia. Sens. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., and Durbin dedicated their votes to their mothers.
Recalled working as child Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., recalled working as a child with his family, side-by-side with immigrants here illegally “who worked harder than we did under conditions much more difficult than we endured.” Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., spoke of his grandparents and great-grandparents who fled persecution in Europe.
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., relayed several news reports recounting the thousands of people whose bodies have been found in the sweltering Arizona desert, evidence of the risks that people take in illegally crossing the border from Mexico. “Isn’t it in us to bring 11 million people out of the shadows?” McCain said on the Senate floor. Yes, the Senate later agreed, voting 68-32 to send to the House a bill that would put most of them on a path toward citizenship — and establish a military-style operation of 20,000 new guards, 700 miles of fencing and an array of war-developed technologies like drones and motion sensors to make the U.S.-Mexico border virtually impenetrable. The House is all for the latter, but majority Republicans are much less enamored with a creating a new path to citizenship for people breaking the law by their very presence in the U.S.
Briefly: World Obama jousts in Senegal on gay unions DAKAR, Senegal — President Barack Obama on Thursday praised the Supreme Court’s ruling on same-sex marriage as a “victory for American democracy” but clashed with his African host over gay rights. Obama said recognition of gay unions in the United States should cross state lines and that equal rights should be recognized Sall universally. It was his first chance to talk about the ruling, issued Wednesday as he flew to Senegal, an African country that outlaws homosexuality. Senegalese President Macky Sall rebuffed Obama’s call for Africans to give gays equal rights under the law. “We are still not ready to decriminalize homosexuality,” Sall said, while insisting that the country is “very tolerant.”
Mandela still critical JOHANNESBURG — Nelson Mandela’s health improved overnight, and although his con-
dition remains critical, it is now stable, the South African government said Thursday. One of the former president’s daughters said he is still opening his eyes and reacting to the touch of his family even though his situation is precarious. The report that the health of the 94-year-old anti-apartheid leader had improved came amid a growing sense in South Africa that Mandela was approaching the end of his life.
Unauthorized pass QUITO, Ecuador — Ecuador’s diplomatic mission in London issued a safe-conduct pass so National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden could travel to Ecuador to seek political asylum, but the action was unauthorized, and the pass is invalid, government officials said Thursday. President Barack Obama sought to downplay the international chase for a man he called “a 29-year-old hacker” and lower the temperature of an issue that raised tensions between the U.S., Russia and China. But Ecuadorean officials took a defiant tone as they scrambled to explain an unsigned letter dated June 22 that said Snowden has the right to travel to Ecuador for political asylum, and asks other countries to allow him safe passage.

Lawmaker: Student loan rates to double if deadline’s ignored THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — A compromise to keep student loan interest rates low proved unwinnable before Monday’s deadline and interest rates on new loans are going to double -— at least for a while — senators said Thursday. Sen. Tom Harkin, the chairman of the Senate education panel, said none of the proposals being circulated among lawmakers could win passage, and he urged lawmakers to extend the current rates for another year when they return from the July 4 recess. Harkin said that his colleagues could retroactively lower the rates when they return.
“Let’s put this off for a year,” Harkin, D-Iowa, told reporters. Interest rates on new subsidized Stafford loans are set to go from 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent Monday unless lawmakers take action.
Average hike: $2,600 Congress’ Joint Economic Committee estimates the increase will cost the average student $2,600. “Neither party wants to see rates rise next week,” said Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C. But a one-year rate extension isn’t an acceptable option, either. “Last year, we kicked the can down the road and passed a one-
year extension for only a small group of students. . . . Why would we make the same mistake again?” said Burr, who was among a group who worked on a competing proposal with Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va. The Manchin-led proposal would link interest rates to the financial markets. It borrowed heavily from a version House Republicans passed earlier and from principles included in President Barack Obama’s budget proposal. “This agreement is very much like the proposal in the president’s budget . . . and it will save billions of dollars in interest,” said Tennessee’s Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander.

SALLY JEWELL MADE an emotional pledge in her first address to Indian Country as the 51st U.S. Interior secretary, saying she’ll help right past wrongs against Native Americans and work with tribes “nation-to-nation” to protect their sovereignty. Jewell fought back tears during remarks Thursday in Reno, Nev., to about 300 delegates of the National Congress of American Indians. The ex-outdoor retail executive from Seattle became secretary in April. She told delegates the U.S. government doesn’t have a proud legacy when it comes to upholding promises to native people.

The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver decided the Oklahoma Citybased arts and crafts chain can proceed with its case. The reprieve gives Hobby Lobby Stores Inc. more time to argue in a lower court that for-profit businesses — not just currently exempted religious groups — should be allowed to seek an exception if the law violates their religious beliefs.
A FIGHT OVER attempts to limit abortion in Texas became a personal grudge match Thursday between Republican Gov.

Wendy Davis of Fort Worth, saying that her life story proves all children born into difficult circumstances deserve not to be aborted. In an e-mailed statement Wednesday, Davis shot back: “Rick Perry’s statement is without dignity and tarnishes the high office he holds.”
A NEW ZEALAND meteorologist took the last known calls from the seven people aboard an American schooner: “The weather’s turned nasty.

Authorities said the skipper of the 70-foot vessel Nina is American David Dyche. Two other American men and three American women are aboard, plus a British man, age 35.

and Anna Wiancko, was placed in a conservation easement June 21, the land trust said this week, adding that it will help protect habitat for one of the largest wild steelhead populations in the state, according to the land trust. The area also provides habitat for cutthroat trout, chum, pink, sockeye, chinook and coho salmon.
A conservation easement protects land from development in perpetuity. â€œPreserving quality salmon and steelhead habitat is of high importance to our community,â€? said Tom Sanford, land trust executive director. â€œThis new easement will help maintain and grow strong fish populations in the Sol Duc. Weâ€™re so pleased to help Paul and Anna achieve their vision of conserving their land.â€? The Sol Duc River flows about 65 miles from high in Olympic National Park down to where it joins the Bogachiel River and forms the Quileute River, about 5 miles from the Pacific Ocean.

SEQUIM â€“â€“ The water system for a Highland Irrigation ditch was turned back on Thursday afternoon after a daylong shutoff followed a dump truck crash near River Road on Wednesday afternoon. Steve Gaither, ditch walker for Highland, said the company had to turn off its system as crews cleaned up diesel and motor oil that spilled after the crash. A driver hauling rock from the Haller pit for use in the stateâ€™s project to widen U.S. Highway 101 between Kitchen-Dick and Shore roads west of Sequim was taken to Olympic Medical Center in Port Angeles for treatment of an injured shoulder after the crash, according to Ben Andrews, assistant chief for the fire district.
Name not released
The department did not release the driverâ€™s name because of privacy concerns. The truck was towing a pup trailer down a service road from the quarry. The pup trailer apparently lost the use of its brakes and slid into the ditch, pulling the truck on top of it, Andrews said. The crash damaged one ________ of two 30-gallon tanks on the truck, according to Sequim-Dungeness Valley EdiLinda Kent, spokeswoman tor Joe Smillie can be reached at for the state Department of 360-681-2390, ext. 5052, or at Ecology. firstname.lastname@example.org.

An estimated 20-25 gallons of diesel oil spilled into the ditch. Kent said the truck also leaked hydraulic fluid and motor oil into the ditch. Emergency crews worked late Wednesday to deploy absorbent pads and booms to contain the oil and diesel. They turned off the irrigation system to allow the oil to flow out, Gaither said. By Thursday afternoon, what was left in the ditch was being skimmed off the top by booms. Fire district crews retrieved the oil spill response trailer from John Wayne Marina to clean up the spill along with Clallam County Emergency Management, the Department of Ecology spill response team, Highland Irrigation district and Scarsella Brothers. Andrews said fire district personnel spent 5Â˝ hours on the scene before turning the incident over to Ecology and Scarsella Brothers. Kent noted the ditch is not a fish passage, and the spill was quickly contained, which limited its damage. There was no contamination found in Johnson Creek, where the ditch flows out, she said.
OLYMPIA â€” Drunken driving offenders who are caught a second time will be more closely monitored under a bill approved by the state Legislature. The state House voted unanimously to finalize the measure Thursday. The plan would require drivers charged with a second impaired-driving offense to have an interlock device installed on their vehicles within five days of being charged. The state also would begin a pilot program to conduct daily alcohol monitoring on a person convicted twice under the DUI law. Peninsula Daily News and The Associated Press

PORT ANGELES — A staple of the Port Angeles Fourth of July parade will not happen this year because of federal budget cutbacks. The Coast Guard has announced it won’t conduct a flyover of helicopters for the parade. The change is because of federal sequestration and the Budget Control Act, said Lt. Tim Andersen, public affairs officer at Air Station/ Sector Field Office Port Angeles. “In order to help preserve our ability to meet the highest-priority mission activities, including search and rescue, critical security operations and emergency response while integrating the effects of the Budget Control Act, the Coast Guard has had to re-evaluate our ability to participate in community relations events,” he said in a statement. “Unfortunately, this means limiting or canceling U.S. Coast Guard support for most of these events.” The Coast Guard will continue its Color Guard participation, he said. The theme of the Fourth of July parade in Port Angeles is “Port Angeles: Celebrating our Local Heroes.” It will be led by this
year’s grand marshal, Betsy Reed Schultz, founder of the Captain Joseph House Foundation. The Captain Joseph House at 1108 S. Oak St. is named for her son, Army Capt. Joseph Schultz, who was killed in action in Afghanistan on May 29, 2011. It is to be a place of healing and relaxation for families of fallen military men and women. The parade will begin at 6 p.m. on the Fourth of July, a Thursday, at the corner of Fourth and Lincoln streets, travel to First Street and move west to Valley Street. Parade applications are available at Kitsap Bank, 716 E. Front St., and the Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce website, www.portangeles.org. There is no cost to participate because of the sponsorship of Kitsap Bank. After the parade, the Luck of the Draw and The Hooky’s will perform at City Pier at 7 p.m. Fireworks will be set off at about 10 p.m.

“In many cases, an electronic device, like a cellphone, is not the property of the student but of the parent,” he said, adding that cellphones can contain “more information than a school library” and that it can be “highly personal.” “Gender identity, family relationships, friends, associations, political leanings, religious affiliations, health information, legal documents and more are all examples of sensitive information that can and often is stored on a portable telecommunications device,” Johnson said. Superintendent Jane Pryne said that after Johnson had contacted her about the policy, she submitted it to the district’s attorney, who suggested several changes and submitted a revised policy for the board to consider.
School Board member Sarah Methner said she wants district officials to consult with the American Civil Liberties Union to craft a policy. “This policy is a modernday Tinker,” Methner said, referring to Tinker v. Des Moines, a 1969 U.S. Supreme Court case in which the majority opinion wrote: “It can hardly be argued that either students or teachers shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate.” Methner said: “If some teacher picks up a phone and sees something they shouldn’t, there will be problems.” Board member Steve Baxter said he is concerned about the school’s possible liability if something untoward happens with a staff member looking at a student phone.

PORT ANGELES — A parent’s concern about electronic privacy sparked a debate among Port Angeles School Board members about viewing student cellphone content. Board members will continue a discussion, begun Monday night, on a possible revised policy at the July 11 board meeting, which will begin with a onehour executive session at the Central Services Building at 216 E. Fourth St. Port Angeles parent Jeremy Johnson said the Port Angeles School District Te l e c o m m u n i c a t i o n s Device Policy, Section 3245 D and E, is outdated. It allows school officials with reasonable suspicion that a student is using a telecommunications device in a way that violates the law or school rule to confiscate it. “By bringing a cellphone and other electronic devices to school or school-sponsored events, the student and parents consent to the search of the device when school officials have a reasonable suspicion that such a search will reveal a violation of school rules,” the policy continues. “Content of images that violate state or federal laws will be referred to law enforcement.” The proposed revision would add that “the scope of the search will be limited to the violation of which the student is accused.” It also would say the cellphone “shall only be returned to the student’s parent or legal guardian”

Olympic: 73 miles of wild coast Activities: Park CONTINUED FROM A1 More specifically, Creachbaum said, the documented increasing acidity levels of the world’s oceans, likely linked to the globe’s changing climate, have the potential to affect the park, particularly because of the miles of coastline — 73 miles of wilderness coast — within the park’s borders. Creachbaum said how global climate change might affect the park is one of the issues addressed in the park’s wilderness stewardship plan, now under development. The plan — laying out how the 95 percent of the park devoted to wilderness areas will be managed, and ensuring both its conservation and public access — likely will attempt to address climate change by remaining flexible, Creachbaum said. “I think there will be an adaptive element to our plan, [and] we will continually be assessing it,” she said.
11 meetings on plan Park staff have conducted 11 public comment meetings on the plan. People were asked to weigh in on what they value most about the roughly 1,300 square miles of wilderness in the 1,442-squaremile park. “Right now, my goal is to take care of what we have and take care of it well,” said Creachbaum when asked about the park’s potentially expanding, action beyond the superintendent’s control since any changes in park boundaries are made through acts of Congress. Creachbaum said park staff is organizing comments and developing a number of alternatives for managing the park’s wilderness. The alternatives will be subjected to public comment, with meetings likely to begin in the fall, Creachbaum added. “I think it’s very important that parks remain relevant to people,” Creachbaum said. “And it is part of the [fed-

Here are several key events in Olympic National Park’s history: ■ 1889: James Wickersham, District Court judge in the 3rd Judicial Division — which was composed of 300,000 square miles and based in Tacoma — leads the first of two hiking expeditions into the Olympic Peninsula’s interior. He later became an ardent supporter of establishing Olympic National Park. ■ 1909: President Theodore Roosevelt creates the 610,000-acre Mount Olympus National Monument. ■ 1913: Elwha Dam becomes operational. ■ 1926: First congressional bill introduced to create Olympic National Park. ■ 1927: Glines Canyon Dam, upstream from Elwha Dam on the Elwha River, becomes operational. ■ 1937: President Franklin Roosevelt visits the North Olympic Peninsula, hears widespread support for the creation of Olympic National Park. ■ June 29, 1938: Roosevelt signs Olympic National Park into existence. ■ 1988: Congress designates 95 percent of Olympic National Park as wilderness. ■ 1990: Maureen E.

The park consistently ranks among the top 10 most-visited national parks, according to Park Service visitor data. Attendance has slipped slightly in the past five years, however, from slightly more than 3 million in 2008 to 2.8 million in 2012. Creachbaum said park visits are always a priority and cited a program starting this summer that will bring Latino journalists and bloggers from across the country to the park and
Budget: Policy CONTINUED FROM A1 He also said it provides no tuition increases over two years. “I do think it’s a budget that has broad appeal,” Hill said. “Everybody is excited and glad to be done.” Lawmakers didn’t immediately release the full details of the proposal. Much of state government would shut down — and more than 25,000 workers would be laid off temporarily — if the Legislature fails to approve the new budget by Monday, and political leaders believe it’s particularly important to finalize the plan before state employees leave work for the weekend.
Never had a shutdown Washington state has never had a government shutdown, but the Legislature has worked close to the end of the fiscal period before. In 2001, lawmakers finished the budget June 20; in 1991, then-Gov. Booth Gardner signed a budget just moments before midnight June 30.

Jarvis cited the efforts to reintroduce the fisher to the park, a project on which staff has worked hand-inhand with the state Department of Fish and Wildlife. Jarvis also praised the work that staff has done with tribes that have made their historic homes in and around the park. “We’ve had, I think, over the years a positive working relationship with the tribes, and that’s set a model for us working across the country,” Jarvis said.
“I do think it’s a budget that has broad appeal. Everybody is excited and glad to be done.” ANDY HILL Republican senator servative Democrats pushed a no-tax message and policies that would overhaul government rules to aid businesses. Democrats who control the House and Inslee have pressed for more tax revenue and opposed many of the Senate policy plans. The Senate has talked about revisiting those policy matters next year, such as an overhaul to the state’s workers’ compensation system. Democrats have said the tax issues also will return next session, since lawmakers still will need to add more money to the education system in the coming years. “This is a good budget,” said House Majority Leader Pat Sullivan. “However, it doesn’t address the underlying questions we need to answer before we can honestly say we’ve met our long-term commitment to education in our state.”

Then there’s the Elwha River dam-removal and restoration project, the largest such effort in history. “A lot of other parks are watching what’s going on at Olympic with the Elwha,” Jarvis said. “Putting nature back together is a complicated process and expensive.” The $325 million project, in the works in some form since Congress passed the law authorizing the removal in 1992, seeks to unlock 70 miles of Elwha River habitat for use by migrating salmon. The once-108-foot-tall Elwha Dam, built in 1913 5 miles from the river mouth, was taken down by March 2012, while only 60 feet of Glines Canyon Dam, the Elwha Dam’s once-210foot-tall cousin, remain. Creachbaum and Jarvis agreed the historic dam removal is just one example of the country’s love affair with Olympic National Park ever since it was signed into existence threequarters of a century ago. “I think one of the reasons Olympic looks so good at the ripe old age of 75 is because the American people really wouldn’t have it any other way,” CreachPENINSULA DAILY NEWS baum said.

10½-cent increase included in measure headed to Senate THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
OLYMPIA — A day after it was voted down, a $10 billion transportation revenue package that includes a 10½-cent increase in the gas tax was approved Thursday by the state House. The measure passed on a 51-41 vote and now heads to the Senate, where it is expected to face resistance. On Wednesday, the measure had failed to receive the required 50 votes, a rare bill failure in the Democraticcontrolled House.
Van De Wege changed mind Rep. Kevin Van De Wege of Sequim — who represents the 24th District, which includes the North Olympic Peninsula — was among the three Democrats who had nixed the measure Wednesday but voted for it Thursday. The other two were Reps. Brian Blake of Aberdeen and Marko Liias of Mukilteo. Liias had voted no initially only so he could bring the measure back for another vote Thursday, he said. Members of the prevailing side in a vote can ask the chamber to reconsider it. Liias warned that other states, such as South Carolina, could benefit if Washington state failed to take action
to improve its transportation infrastructure. “Inaction is a loss of competitiveness,” he said. Under the measure, the state gas tax would increase by 6 cents per gallon Aug. 1, with the remainder of the increase taking effect July 1, 2014. The package includes $3.2 billion for several state road projects and more than $1 billion for maintenance of highways and bridges. It has been a priority for Gov. Jay Inslee, who watched the vote from the House wings and thanked several lawmakers in the House Democratic wings after the measure passed. Democrats hold a 55-seat majority in the House. Several Democrats voted against the measure Thursday: Reps. Hans Dunshee of Snohomish, Kathy Haigh of Shelton, Chris Hurst of Enumclaw and Monica Stonier of Vancouver, Wash. Rep. Hans Zeiger of Puyallup was the lone Republican to vote in favor of the funding package. Republicans who spoke against the measure said nothing had changed to allay their concerns over the financing of the package or lack of reforms they had sought to address project costs. “The public continues to say no to this package. I continue to say no to this package. And this House chamber should continue to say no to this package,” said Rep. Ed Orcutt, R-Kalama.

SEATTLE — An Auburn woman accused of neglecting her 70-year-old mother such that maggots were crawling into a leg wound was charged with criminal mistreatment of a dependent person. Seattlepi.com reported that 46-year-old Sherrie Morton is jailed with bail set at $150,000. Charging papers said Morton called 9-1-1 earlier this month after a friend threatened to call. Deputies and medics found the elderly woman in a soiled bed covered in maggots and took her to a Renton hospital. Morton told police she had been caring for her mother adequately. She said it took hours to change her 400-pound mother’s diaper. A King County sheriff’s detective, Marylisa PriebeOlson, wrote in court papers that a paramedic said the maggots may have saved the woman’s life by eating rotting skin and slowing the infection.

Native plants showcased in county park arboretum BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
CHIMACUM — A 1-acre portion of a popular county park has been converted to an arboretum that showcases native plants as a way for visitors to gain a scientific perspective about area vegetation. “This is a center of information about native plants,” said Linda Landkammer, the garden’s designer and project coordinator. “It is a place where you can see all the plants in the flesh, so to speak, and learn about them at the same time.” A grand opening is planned from 5 to 8 tonight. A plant sale, music, food carts and a raffle are planned. The space, which is located inside H.J. Carroll Park at 9884 state Highway 19, just north of the Chimacum crossroads, has been christened the Kul Kah Han Native Plant Demonstration Garden. It is named in honor of the last-known chief of the Chimakum tribe who, in the 1850s, lived not far from the present gardens and used the native plants for food, clothing and medicine.
Hundreds of plants The park includes 900 feet of pathways that lead through displays of 240 species of plants that are labeled and cross-referenced. Within the park are divisions keyed to the plants’ native environment, such as damp forest, dry forest, edgeland, meadow, montane (high elevation), subal-

Landkammer said she hopes to acquire 160 more species for a total of 400. The organization has created a database with information on each plant, including its botanical name, its common name and whether a sign for the plant has been made. The database also includes a field to enter the names of plants she wants to add to the collection and the disposition of that acquisition. “Our goal is to sponsor educational presentations and to collaborate with other like-minded organizations,” Landkammer said, adding that the park could be a field trip destination for school classes. Landkammer said about
$3,000 had been spent in developing the park over a 15-year period. Area organizations, governmental entities and individuals donated cash and materials.
Landkammer is recruiting volunteers for two teams of four people who will be asked to commit to a few hours twice a month. “We are looking for people who already know about native plants to join us,” she said. “And we can take a few more who know gardening in general but are willing to enrich their knowledge of native plants through research.” For more information, visit www.nativeplant garden.org, email email@example.com or phone 360-379-8733.
Landkammer said the success is attributable to volunteers, who she estimates contributed about 15,000 hours. After the park ceremony, she will step down as project coordinator.

Port: Hallet criticizes rehiring CONTINUED FROM A1 Until an interim director is hired, expenditures over $5,000 must be approved by the commissioners instead of an executive director. So the commissioners must hold a special meeting at 9 a.m. today to approve renewal of the port’s property insurance premium and consider suspending a $2 million state Department of Ecology grant if funding is disrupted by the lack of a 2013-1014 state budget.
Grant to resume The grant will resume once a budget is passed, Port Finance Director Karen Goschen said Thursday. The meeting is in the port administrative office building, 338 W. First St. There is no scheduled public comment period on the agenda. The move hiring Robb for a lower-level position at the same executive director’s salary was criticized at Monday’s meeting by commission President Jim Hallett, who cast the lone dissenting vote, and speakers in the packed board meeting room who decried the contract as “a sweetheart deal” designed to allow Robb to get full state retirement benefits. Robb is one year away from retirement and from
qualifying for state retirement benefits. The environmental director position was never advertised or posted, in contrast to what the port employee handbook states is “normally” done with position openings. And there was no official port job description when Robb said in his statement Monday that he and commissioners had “agreed” that he would take the environmental affairs director position. Hallett disputed the assertion there was an agreement. He did not return calls for comment Thursday. Robb’s salary as environmental affairs director is 64 percent higher than the salary paid to Goschen, who now has the next-highest director’s salary at the port.
Shouldn’t be punished “This situation was not all the executive director’s fault, and I didn’t think he should be punished with a reduction in salary as a
result of this,” Calhoun said. “He was being removed from the executive director position, and that was damaging enough,” he added. “When we signed the contract, we set the salary,” Calhoun said. “We were careful to do it according to the rules.” Robb informed the commissioners June 19 at a special board meeting at which an executive session was held to discuss his job performance that “he didn’t think he could continue,” Calhoun said. McHugh agreed that though there was no threat of legal action, litigation would have been possible if Robb had remained at his position. “There was that potential,” he said. He also defended giving Robb the same salary he received as executive director. Robb’s involvement in ongoing port environmental cleanup projects “simply can’t be replaced by a consultant,” McHugh said. “The port is truly getting value.” Robb began working for the port in 1984 and was the manager of port aviation and marinas when he was hired in August 2009 as executive director, a position in which his salary increased by 20 percent over three years to $138,000.
McHugh left no doubt that he would not support hiring from within port staff for the interim or permanent executive director positions. “I will not support anyone currently on our staff, absolutely not,” he said. “That will not help us to move forward.” He said the new permanent executive director may make more than Robb. “The new executive in almost all cases comes in at a higher level than the one that left,” McHugh said. The salaries for the interim and new executive directors will be taken from the 2013 general operating budget, he said. Those funds consist of income the port generates from operations, such as rent from tenants and other revenue. “It’s not really public money,” McHugh said. “The public’s money is the tax dollars we take in,” he said. “People can choose to utilize port facilities or not. “These are private individuals and businesses that would be paying the port to use facilities, or they would be paying someone else, so there is a difference.”

High court’s immeasurable impact WITH ONE OF its rulings, the Supreme Court mandated federal recognition of gay couples married in places that permit it. With another, it Frank reopened the Bruni door to samesex marriage in California, our most populous state. These practical consequences are huge. But the two decisions together also have another kind of effect, deeply emotional, potently symbolic and impossible to measure — but arguably much more sweeping. Like all that happens at the highest levels of our government, like all the judgments rendered and statements made by the officials chosen to guide us, the court’s actions set a tone. They send a signal. They alter the climate of what’s considered just and what’s not, of what’s permissible and what’s intolerable, and that change ripples into every last corner of American life, shaping
people’s very destinies. This was hammered home to me by the time I spent recently with a mother, a father and a brother who have known terrible heartbreak and, in its aftermath, spent no shortage of time thinking about the messages that gay Americans receive from the laws and the leaders of our land. Their surname, Clementi, is probably familiar to you. So is much of their story, though maybe not the current chapter. In September 2010, Tyler Clementi, an 18-year-old freshman at Rutgers University in New Jersey, hurled himself from the George Washington Bridge [over the Hudson River between New Jersey and New York]. And in the months following his suicide, the pain preceding it came into disturbing, shameful focus. He’d been harassed online by his college roommate, who had deemed his homosexuality worthy of taunts and titters. He’d worried about his mother’s comfort with his desires, his identity. He was a young man filled with dreams but also with a special set of concerns, with the knowledge that a fundamental part of who he was would cause
some people to look down on him and others to reject him. Is that why he jumped? There’s no way to know. “Suicide is an irrational action, so to try to rationalize it I don’t think can really be done,” his father, Joe Clementi, said to me. Even so, Joe and his wife, Jane, along with one of their two surviving sons, James, have dedicated themselves to educating people about the problems that perhaps conspired in Tyler’s fate. Through public speaking, lobbying and other work with the Tyler Clementi Foundation, they’re trying to stop young people from hurting one another, and they’re trying to call out aspects of American life that pass judgment on LGBT people and make some of them, teenagers especially, feel fear and despair. The Defense of Marriage Act, a central provision of which the Supreme Court struck down Wednesday, was one of those aspects. Jane said she didn’t see this clearly before Tyler’s suicide but that she did after, when she left her evangelical church over its opposition to gay marriage and its other anti-gay stances.
“It’s not only people who can intimidate and harass,” she told me during a conversation at the Clementis’ home in Ridgewood, N.J. “It’s institutions. It’s legislation. With laws the way they are, we’re teaching that there’s a group of individuals who are ‘less than’ others.” The haters are thus given license, and the hated are further isolated. “And you never know,” said Joe, “where a person is at their particular point in life and what could drive them to a bad decision or to taking a wrong step.” He’s right, and that’s why it mattered when President Barack Obama mentioned Stonewall in his second Inaugural Address, putting heroes of the gay-rights movement on a par with heroes of any other. That’s why it matters that he hasn’t yet signed an executive order demanding that federal contractors not discriminate against gays and lesbians in hiring. He’s indulging, and thus excusing, possible bigotry. As for the Supreme Court, it didn’t go as far on Wednesday as it theoretically could have, nor
OUR READERS’ LETTERS, FAXES
PT Library I The organization opposing the [Port Townsend] library bond issue recommends a branch library on Castle Hill as a more reasonable and fair solution to the library’s space needs. Does a branch library make sense for Port Townsend? I don’t think so. I did a quick perusal of several states’ library standards concerning branch development. (Washington does not have statewide standards.) I found a fair amount of consensus about when a branch is needed: if library users have to drive more than 20 minutes (urban) or 30 minutes (rural) to get to a library, the standards recommend construction of a branch. By these measures, the current library location provides adequate geographic accessibility for everyone. Branches are expensive. When money is short, one of the first thing multibranch systems do is curtail branch services. Branches are laborintensive, requiring service staff in two separate locations rather than under one roof. I was library director during the 1990 library expansion project. I’m proud that our project resulted in a facility that has been able to support the dramatic increases in library use that have occurred since 1990. Once again, the library has outgrown its facilities, but a branch library is not the solution. The current project makes sense. It addresses space and design needs and will provide the foundation for continued library growth and change. I’m voting for the library bond issue and hope you will, too.

35 years. Before that I was a high school student myself — even served on student council. The whole time, I wondered why high schools pretend to have student government. I still think that a goal for student government should be to learn how representative government works — and to learn the importance of electing responsible, competent representatives to do the right thing. (It seems obvious that our nation could benefit from such a goal.) How are kids are going to learn self-government if their own representatives are denied the opportunity to make hard decisions? I once taught in a high school (not Port Townsend) where students wanted to change their mascot, but school administrators, alumni and local business and community leaders shouted them down. The issue never made it to the student council, let alone the School Board. What do kids learn from this? How do kids learn to make hard decisions when hard decisions are taken from them?

never advertised or posted to allow others to apply, and to me the new contract appears to be specially created to help Mr. Robb build up his retirement funds. Why pay an individual a $69,000 severance package when we can pay approximately $200,000 for a salary and benefits package? The commissioners who voted for this should be terminated for this action. Then the port can apply the approved $30,000 “headhunter” outlay for three positions rather than just one. Mr. Robb had a big “stress-free” smile when he signed the contract. Mike Green, Port Angeles

did it speak in a unanimous voice. The journey toward full equality for LGBT Americans is a long way from over. But what happened was progress. It was hope. James Clementi, Tyler’s brother, is himself gay, and he told me on the phone Wednesday afternoon that he felt different than he had a day earlier. He felt more included. Jane said that while the court’s rulings in the DOMA and Prop. 8 cases were “just a start,” they affirmed her belief in “the trajectory of where we’re going.” They might even save lives, she said. From what she’s lost and from what she’s learned, she knows that there are many wounded and fretful young gay people out there, along with many straight peers who may or may not decide that it’s OK to ridicule them. And there’s a chance, a crucial and wonderful chance, that the ripples from Wednesday will reach and teach all of them.

A zombie scare with a chaser I LOVE MY monsters, sacred or straight up. I’m not as fond of zombies as I am of vampires. Vampires are urbane shape-shifters, Maureen sophisticated, Dowd seductive and nattily dressed. Unlike vampires, their undead brethren, zombies, don’t age well. Their muscle tone is shot. The rotting ghouls just groan and lumber about, except for the most highly evolved, who precede a meal with a succinct request: “Brains!” But last weekend, zombies were kicking off the summer movie season. So naturally, I was at the first showing of “World War Z,” where Brad Pitt fights an army of crepuscular demons to save the world — and without even having Angie’s help. One minute Pitt’s character, a former United Nations investigator, is making pancakes for his family, and the next, twitching zombies are dropping out of the sky onto his car. After decades of zombies who lurched like Frankenstein’s monster, Hollywood has finally realized the monsters are scarier if they are fast enough to actually catch someone. The ones in “World War Z” dart about like velociraptors, and they love sinking their teeth into humans, as one soldier puts it, “like fat kids love Twix.” Vampires have always been rich fodder for metaphors, standing in for everything from bloodthirsty capitalism to AIDS to teenage desire. Max Brooks, the son of Mel Brooks and Anne Bancroft, who wrote the book the movie is based on, told The New York Times that his zombies were proxies for everything scary that has happened since 2001: 9/11, Iraq, Afghanistan, Katrina, anthrax letters, global warming, global financial melt-
down, bird flu, swine flu and SARS. The anxiety that we may have doomed ourselves and our planet through our own heedlessness pervades the culture. But the metaphor about the broken global system is less vivid than the metaphor about the broken Hollywood system. Before Pitt could save the planet, he had to save his movie, a feat on which a fortune was spent. People always want monsters to have a larger meaning, but in this case, the larger meaning is about the monstrous waste of money and the dearth of creativity in Hollywood. The last 40 minutes of the movie had to be rewritten and reshot, and the ending still isn’t fixed. The $190 million 3-D, CGIenhanced spectacle is kind of fun, but it isn’t a classic of the genre, like George Romero’s 1968 “Night of the Living Dead,” Val Lewton’s 1943 “I Walked With a Zombie,” and the 1932 “White Zombie,” the first full-length zombie feature, with Bela Lugosi playing the evil voodoo master of Haiti, Murder Legendre. Pitt just seems happy that the blockbuster is not as dreadful as it was when he saw the first cut. “It was pretty rank,” he told USA Today. In the movie, Washington gets wiped out quickly, of course, because the politicians can’t even come to an agreement on survival. The zombies seem to enjoy chowing down on the creaky joints of the Joint Chiefs. It seemed that no one had read the real-life Centers for Disease Control and Prevention blog called “Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse.” “You may laugh now,” wrote Dr. Ali S. Khan, the director of the CDC Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response, “but when it happens, you’ll be happy you read this — and hey, maybe you’ll even learn a thing or two about how to prepare for a real emergency.” The CDC recommended a kit including water (one does get
dehydrated from running away from these speedy zombies), nonperishable food, medications, knives, duct tape, a battery-powered radio and first-aid supplies. “Although you’re a goner if a zombie bites you,” Khan noted, “you can use these supplies to treat basic cuts and lacerations that you might get during a tornado or hurricane.” In the movie, the two smartest countries turn out to be Israel and, less predictably, North Korea. The Israelis erect a Great Wall that protects them until the zombies learn teamwork and make a nonhuman pyramid to scale the wall. In a crisis, tyranny has its benefits. The North Korean dictator orders that all 24 million citizens have their teeth pulled within 24 hours so that humans who turn into zombies can’t infect anyone by biting. A French military pilot, no doubt trying to abide by his country’s 35-hour workweek, flies off, leaving Pitt stranded with Israeli zombies. If the movie scares you, you can always calm down with a zombie, the paralyzing rum concoction invented at Don the Beachcomber’s bar in Hollywood. With the recipe a deep, dark secret, the drink was so popular that the tiki bar got nicknamed “the Zombie Palace.” Ava Gardner, who had many nightcaps at the bar when she was a teenager dating Mickey Rooney, revealed the ingredients to the British journalist Peter Evans: “Bacardi, dark rum, light rum, pineapple juice, lime juice, apricot brandy, orange juice, a sprig of mint and a cherry.” But, she advised, the secret of a good zombie is this: “Hold the mint and the cherry.”

Liberal can’t hide from racial epithet MEET RYAN PATRICK Winkler. He’s a 37-year-old lib- Michelle eral Minnesota state legislator Malkin with a B.A. in history from Harvard University and a J.D. from the University of Minnesota Law School. He’s also a coward, a bigot, a liar and a textbook example of plantation progressivism. On Tuesday, Winkler took to Twitter to rant about the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down an onerous section of the Voting Rights Act. The 5-4 ruling overturned an unconstitutional requirement that states win federal preclearance approval of any changes to their election laws and procedures. Winkler fumed: “VRA majority is four accomplices to race discrimination and one Uncle Thomas.” This Ivy League-trained public official and attorney relied on smug bigotry to make his case against a Supreme Court justice who happens to be black. “Uncle Thomas” wasn’t a typo. Denigration was the goal, not an accident. It was a knowing, deliberate smear. After being called out by conservative social media users for his cheap attack on Clarence Thomas, Winkler then revealed his true color: yellow. He deleted the tweet (captured for posterity at my Twitter curation site, twitchy.com) and
pleaded ignorance. “I did not understand ‘Uncle Tom’ as a racist term, and there seems to be some debate about it. I do Winkler apologize for it, however,” he sniveled. “I didn’t think it was offensive to suggest that Justice Thomas should be even more concerned about racial discrimination than colleagues,” he protested. Holding a black man to a different intellectual standard based on his skin color. Accusing a non-white conservative of collectivist race traitorism. Employing one of the most infamous, overused epithets against minority conservatives in the Democratic lexicon. “Apologizing,” but disclaiming responsibility. Sorry that he got caught. Just another day at the leftwing racist office. Rabid liberal elitists expect and demand that we swallow their left-wing political orthodoxy whole and never question. When we don’t yield, their racist and sexist diatribes against us are unmatched. My IQ, free will, skin color, eye shape, name, authenticity and integrity have been routinely ridiculed or questioned for more than two decades because I happen to be an unapologetic brown female free-market conservative. My Twitter account biography jokingly includes the moniker “Oriental Auntie Tom” — just one of thousands of slurs hurled at
me by libs allergic to diversity of thought — for a reason. It’s a way to hold up an unflinching mirror at the holierthan-thou NoH8 haters and laugh. We conservatives “of color” are way past anger about the Uncle Tom/Aunt Tomasina attacks. We’re reviled by the left for our “betrayal” of our supposed tribes — accused of being Uncle Toms, Aunt Tomasinas, House Ni****s, puppets of the White Man, Oreos, Sambos, lawn jockeys, coconuts, bananas, sellouts and whores. This is how the left’s racial and ethnic tribalists have always rolled. But their insults are not bullets. They are badges of honor. The Uncle Tom card has been played out. Of course, Winkler didn’t think it was offensive. Smartypants liberal racists never think they’re being racist. In their own sanctimonious minds, progressives of pallor can never be guilty of bigotry toward minority conservatives. Ignorance is strength. Slurs are compliments. Intolerance is tolerance. And when all else fails, leftwing prejudice is always just a well-intended joke. Conservatives on Twitter have changed the dynamic in an underappreciated, revolutionary way. The pushback against liberal political bigotry is bigger, stronger and swifter than it’s ever been. You can delete, but you cannot hide.

PT merchants discuss top priorities Lighting, hours lead list BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND — Merchants believe improved lighting and extended hours are priorities for increasing sales traffic in the downtown area, according to results of an informal poll taken Thursday. “There is no lighting on this end of town, and we had no Christmas lights last year,” said Lois Venarchick, owner of Wynwoods Gallery & Bead Studio at 940 Water St. “We are the entry point to town, and instead of a warm greeting to visitors, it looks like a white trash area.” About 30 merchants met at the Main Street Merchant Breakfast at Pippa’s Real Tea, 636 Water St.
Participants discussed a list of 11 priorities. They used colored dots to rate each in importance: green for top priority, yellow for second-most-important and red for third.
‘Cream of crop’ Better lighting and extended shopping hours were the top choices among merchants. The priority receiving the most yellow dots was increasing participation with Centrum and re-establishing free lunchtime concerts to encourage people to come downtown. Increased training in social media was the thirdmost-popular priority. “This is the cream of the crop, so I’m not surprised that all the topics got at

Snohomish porkers get an unusual flavor infusion

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Jeremy Gross sits on his farm in Snohomish with some of his pigs, in background, that are being fed with a feed mix that includes leaves, stems and other byproducts of medical marijuana production. By feeding the pigs pot, Gross is trying to produce pork products with a unique, savory taste. “It’s like anything else: What you feed them is what they’re going to taste like. It’s almost like a savory alfalfafed cow or alfalfa-fed pig.” The meat, though, won’t get people high. It’s just a flavor infusion.
Marijuana excess While the passage of recreational marijuana inspired the experiment, Gross and von Schneidau get the marijuana excess — roots, stems and other parts of the plant that are grinded and not used for consumption — from a medical marijuana dispensary.

PORT ANGELES — The city is taking applications from volunteers to serve on several committees, including the Board of Ethics. The deadline for submitting applications for all but the Board of Ethics is 3 p.m. Tuesday. Applications will continue to be accepted for the Board of Ethics until positions are filled. Positions open are:
Farmer feeds pigs medical pot byproducts SNOHOMISH — The white van with tinted windows pulled up to the driveway with its cargo: cardboard boxes full of marijuana. And the customers eagerly awaited it, grunting and snorting. The deal was going down for three hungry Berkshire pigs from a Washington state farm, and a German television crew was there to film it. Part flavor experiment, part green recycling, part promotion and bolstered by the legalization of recreational marijuana in Washington state, pot excess has been fed to the hogs by their owners, pig farmer Jeremy Gross and Seattle butcher William von Schneidau, since earlier this year. Gross and von Schneidau now sell their “pot pig” cuts at von Schneidau’s butcher shop in Seattle’s Pike Place Market at a premium price: Bacon is $17 a pound, while chops go for $16.90 a pound. “He’s like, ‘Let’s see what kind of flavor it gives it.’ So we ran it, and it gave good flavor,” Gross said.
ing to commit to this because it’s a challenge for them.” Nollette said some of the priorities already have been assigned to committees who are studying them and determining a plan as to how they can be accomplished. “We have to decide whether we assign the others to committees or put them on a list that will go into our strategic plan for next year,” she said. “We need to decide what we can do with our current budget and what needs to be funded.”
At the butcher shop, cuts from the pot pigs are signed with a little drawing of a marijuana leaf stuck on them with a toothpick. “It tastes like the best pork chop you’ve ever had,” said Matt McAlman, who runs Top Shelf Organic, the dispensary that is providing the pot plant waste for the pigs to eat. The idea has brought worldwide attention. On a recent afternoon, Gross hosted a crew from a German science show, while von Schneidau already has been interviewed dozens of times. The men, though, are relishing the spotlight to advertise von Schneidau’s idea of locally sourced food. Gross’ hogs at his Snohomish farm were being fed recycled byproduct before the marijuana idea. While Gross raises pigs on his property, he works full time as a construction foreman. The only way he can stay in the pig business, he said, is the free feed he collects from a local distillery and brewery. He feeds his pigs barrels of the distillery wheat “mash” every day, fortified by a nutrient mix his veterinarian created. Gross gets his free pig feed, while the distillery and brewery
get rid of waste. Gross is applying that model to the medical marijuana excess, and von Schneidau hopes it’s an example people use as production of marijuana ramps up under the state-approved system. “Absolutely, it’s a good opportunity to help people get rid of their waste,” said von Schneidau, who also is attempting to start a privately owned mobile slaughterhouse.
Draft state rules But currently, the state draft rules say pot plant waste must be “rendered unusable” by either grinding it or mixing it with non-consumable, recycled solid waste, such as food waste, compost, soil and paper waste. The state’s rules for medical marijuana do not say how to get rid of marijuana byproducts. John P. McNamara, a professor at Washington State University’s Department of Animal Sciences, doesn’t find the experiment amusing. “Of all the crazy things I’ve seen in my 37-plus years, this is the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen in my life,” he said.
■ Positions on the Board of Ethics, to be composed of members who are residents of the city and represent a diverse set of backgrounds and interests. At least one member should be a former judicial officer or have expertise in ethics acquired through education or experience. At least one other member should have experience in municipal government. City employees are not eligible. Board members will serve without compensation until Dec. 31, 2014. After reviewing applications, considering additional information and conducting interviews as the City Council deems appropriate, the council may approve those applicants eligible to serve on the board. These applicants then will make up a pool of eligible members. Should an ethics complaint come forward, three members will be selected from the pool to serve as the Ethics Board for that particular complaint. No complaints are pending. The board’s meetings will be open to the public.
Utility Advisory Board ■ One community representative position is open on the Utility Advisory Committee, which makes recommendations to the City Council about city utility policy and operation. Three council members serve on the committee, along with one industrial representative, one representing licensed care facilities and two community representatives.
Members are appointed to four-year terms, with a limit of two consecutive terms. The term for this position will expire Feb. 28. The panel meets at 3 p.m. the second Tuesday of each month at City Hall, 321 E. Fifth St.
Adjustment ■ Two positions are open on the Board of Adjustment, which reviews administrative decisions of the Community Development director relating to the interpretation of land-use ordinances and grant variances from provisions of zoning ordinances. Decisions of the board are final and appealable only to Superior Court. The five members are appointed to four-year terms, with a limit of two consecutive terms. The board meets at 6 p.m. the first Monday of each month at City Hall.
Civil Service ■ One position will become vacant on the Civil Service Commission on or before Dec. 31. The appointee will fill an unexpired term until Feb. 28, 2015. The commission investigates concerns and reports on all matters relating to enforcement, hears and determines appeals or complaints on administrative work of the chief examiner, and decides on disciplinary actions, when needed, for city Civil Service employees. Members are appointed to four-year terms, with a limit of two consecutive terms. The commission meets at City Hall at 10 a.m. the third Thursday of May, July and October of each year if needed. Applications are available at www.cityofpa.us/ boardscc.htm or the City Manager’s Office at City Hall. For more information, contact Teresa Pierce, executive administrative assistant and deputy city clerk, at 360-417-4630 or tpierce@ cityofpa.us.

PORT ANGELES — A Port Angeles man allegedly involved in a car chase with police that ended with him being bitten by Port Angeles police dog Bogey has pleaded not guilty. Christopher Michael White, 23, pleaded not guilty last Friday to one count of attempting to elude a pursuing police vehicle after he allegedly led a Lower Elwha Klallam tribal police officer on a June 10
chase that reached speeds of up to 100 mph. White is set to appear next in Clallam County Superior Court on July 12, with a tentative jury trial date set for Aug. 12.
Remains in jail White remains in the Clallam County jail on $25,000 bond, according to Superior Court documents. According to police accounts, the pursuit ended with White being found in the woods near the 200
block of Bishop Road, south of state Highway 112, after White reportedly abandoned a Chrysler New Yorker he was driving. Port Angeles Officer Lucas DeGand and canine partner Bogey helped Elwha police, Clallam County sheriff’s deputies and Border Patrol agents track White at about 10:15 p.m. and found him hiding in a stand of bushes. Police said Bogey was allowed to approach and bite White after police said White refused to come out
of the bushes with his hands visible, despite multiple orders to do so. White was treated at Olympic Medical Center for wounds to his right arm before he was booked into the jail. White’s arrest is the fifth that DeGand and partner Bogey have assisted in since the pair finished their training in March.

Sequim gardens abloom for Petals & Pathways tour BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
SEQUIM — The last garden listed on the ticket for Saturday’s 20th annual Petals & Pathways Sequim Home Garden Tour is a secret Eden, a backyard paradise kept quiet for 20 years. While Bob and Linda Beatty have a view from their wide porch of the garden — most of Sequim, the Strait of Juan de Fuca and far to the north — the garden has been known only to a few friends who visit the home, including an annual Fourth of July picnic. Saturday’s tour will be the first time their garden on Ravens Ridge Road will be open to the public. “Some of our neighbors said they walk by here all the time, and they didn’t even know it existed,” Bob Beatty said this week.

Concerts, lectures, a regatta and miniature war games are among the activities on the North Olympic Peninsula this weekend. For more information about arts and entertainment, see Peninsula Spotlight, the Peninsula Daily News’ weekly entertainment guide, in today’s edition.
Port Townsend Meet-up planned PORT TOWNSEND — A Sustainability Meet-Up and Open Space will be held at Quimper Grange, 1219 Corona St., from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. today. The meet-ups are sponsored by Local 20/20. The events are free, but donations are appreciated to cover the cost of the facility. Individuals of all ages and all involvement levels are welcome to bring news of projects and concerns to share with others. The majority of the meet-up will consist of a facilitated “Open Space” event, in which any individual can host a 20-minute small-group discussion about a specific area of interest. Those planning on hosting an Open Space discussion should come prepared to announce a topic. Local 20/20 is a grass-roots organization that since 2006 has been working toward local sustainability in East Jefferson County.

heighten enforcement and awareness. The goal of Operation Dry Water is to prevent injury and death in wrecks resulting from people consuming alcohol or drugs while operating boats.
According to Washington State Parks Boating Programs, between 2007 and 2013, at least 39 people were killed in reportable boating wrecks where alcohol use was a contributing factor. The emphasis patrol weekend is aimed at raising awareness of the problem and getting impaired boat
operators off the water by actively enforcing the law that prohibits using alcohol and drugs while operating a boat. Boat operators may be cited if their blood alcohol concentration exceeds the state limit of 0.08 percent. According the U.S. Coast Guard’s Boating Safety Division, alcohol can be more dangerous to boaters than drivers because boat operators often are less experienced and less confident on the water than on the highway. For more information on the national Operation Dry Water campaign, visit www. operationdrywater.org.

Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson, right, hands off to Marshawn Lynch during minicamp on June 12 in Renton. With Wilson getting a full season and off-season of work with the first-team under his belt, the Seahawks’ offense expects to be improved this coming year.
A well-oiled machine Seahawks’ offense will be hard to stop
last year to where we are right now,” Wilson said. “That growth is really, really good. We’re basically putting in the same plays that we’ve had in the playoffs.
MCCLATCHY NEWS SERVICE
‘Focused on the details’
RENTON — As a rookie during the Seattle Seahawks offseason program, Russell Wilson was immersed in a three-way battle for the quarterback job, relegated to splitting reps three ways with the first-unit offense. The limited reps for Wilson hindered his ability to develop chemistry with the first unit, which played a role in the team’s slow start offensively. The Seahawks averaged 17.2 points a contest through the first five games. But once Pete Carroll loosened the reins, Wilson led Seat-
NFL tle’s offense to 29.6 points a contest for the final 11 games of the regular season. Wilson’s inconsistent play during the first month of 2012 is distant memory as the Seahawks completed the team’s offseason program two weeks ago. With all 11 starters from last season still in the fold, Seattle’s offense is ahead of the curve heading into the 2013 season. “The playbook is so much more extensive from this point
“That type of offense right now where we’re really intricate and really focused on the details, and when you focus on the details and continue to harp on those details, the more you’ll grow and learn, and the better you’ll be when you have those big opportunities in games. “I think that’s going to give us a good chance when we get to preseason, and the regular season, also.” Center Max Unger said the offense went through installations for the team’s base plays three to four times during the offseason training program,
which allowed for Seahawks to tweak and add new wrinkles along the way. “The way we’re able to run through our drills is lightning compared to two years ago, or even last year,” Unger said. “Everyone knows what they’re doing. Everyone knows where they’re supposed to be, which lets us focus on a lot of other things we should be doing.” Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell will have a good problem to solve when training camp begins at the end of July — how to get the ball to all of Seattle’s talented playmakers. “That’s why it’s important to build your foundation first — so here’s who we are, and what we are,” Bevell said.

Wedge: No more wiggle room M’s manager angry about lack of offense BY RYAN DIVISH MCCLATCHY NEWS SERVICE
SEATTLE — Eric Wedge is tired of talking about approach, swing mechanics, confidence and all of the things that go into hitting a baseball well. S i n c e taking over as manager of one of the most offensively chall e n g e d teams in b a s e b a l l Next Game before the 2011 sea- Today son, Wedge vs. Cubs has heard at Safeco Field u n e n d i n g Time: 7 p.m. debate and On TV: ROOT analysis about his team’s hitting. So, after watching his team waste another solid outing by Felix Hernandez in a 4-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday, Wedge was moved past the point of discussion. “I’m tired of even talking about it,” he said. “You’ve got to hit. “We can break it down 10 times and then break it down 10 times again. We’ve been doing that here for 21⁄2 years. And it hasn’t gotten any better. “We’ve got to hit.” The Mariners, who came into the game last in the American League in runs per game (3.6) and batting average (.236), mustered eight hits.

Seattle’s Endy Chavez fouls off a pitch in the ninth inning against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday in Seattle. Chavez later struck out as the Mariners failed to rally to a victory yet again. But none of them came in the five at-bats with runners in scoring position while the Mariners stranded 10 runners on base.
Too little, too often Wedge has seen hitting performances like that too many times during his 21⁄2-season tenure. “You are not going to win games unless you hit,” Wedge said. “They got the two-out hit, we didn’t. Game over. That’s the difference.” The Pirates’ two-out hit came in the top of the ninth inning of a 2-2 game. Pittsburgh’s Pedro Alvarez
led off with a hard single to right off reliever Charlie Furbush. Neil Walker bunted Alvarez into scoring position. Wedge then called on righthander Yoervis Medina to finish the inning. Medina got Gaby Sanchez to ground out to third for the second out. With first base open, Medina then intentionally walked left-handed hitting Travis Snider. But the move backfired when No. 9 hitter Jordy Mercer singled sharply up the middle to drive in Alvarez. The Pirates added a run when Medina uncorked a wild pitch on a swinging third strike
to Starling Marte that allowed Snider to score. “I’ve been on the other side of that stick,” Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. “Sometimes, you get the matchups you want, and you don’t get the results you want.” Down 4-2 in the bottom of the ninth, the Mariners’ victory hopes seemed slim. But they managed to put the tying run on base against reliever Mark Melancon. Pinch-hitter Mike Zunino delivered a one-out single and Nick Franklin later singled with two outs. TURN
OLSON’S RESORT IN Sekiu is going all out as it celebrates its 80th anniversary next week. It’s no surprise that a Lee salmon derby is Horton involved, because what would a major event in Sekiu be without a fishing derby? On Saturday, July 6, Olson’s Resort (360-9632311) will host a one-day derby that will dish out $10,000 in cash prizes. Yes, the comma is in the correct place and that figure contains the correct amount of zeros — $10,000 in cash. There will be three different derby ladders; one each for chinook, coho and pink salmon. The biggest chinook wins $4,000, second place takes $1,300, and third place receives $500. For coho, the top fish earns $2,000, second place gets $500, and third takes home $200. The pinks prize money is $1,100, $300 and $100, respectively, for first, second and third place. The buy-in for the derby is $25. So, the angler who catches the top chinook will earn 160 times more than they invested. The salmon season begins Monday in Sekiu (Marine Area 5), and chinook will be the biggest ticket next week. But, Tara Hergert of Olson’s Resort said commercial fisherman have reported seeing coho starting to show up around Sekiu. There also will be a free-entry kids derby with prizes of $30, $20 and $10. Weigh-in for the derbies is 6 p.m. Saturday. The celebration of Olson’s 80 years consists of more than a salmon derby, though. It is a three-day affair (July 4-7) that includes events and activities for the entire family. My favorite is a carving show put on by Chainsaw Jack, also known as Jack McEntire, who was once featured on the TV show “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.” Chainsaw Jack makes amazing wood carvings of all sizes. Including school mascots. Since Port Townsend High School is in the market for a new mascot, here are a few ideas from Chainsaw Jack’s work: www.tinyurl.com/ WoodMascots. The celebration also will include a flame thrower/juggler, live entertainment, food booths, vendors and salmon on a stick. For more information, contact Olson’s Resort at 360-963-2311.

“Golden [Tate] has to be excited — even Percy. He’s just going to open up things for the whole offense. “With Marshawn [Lynch] in the backfield, Russell back there tossing around the rock, it’s going to be a real tough offense to stop.”

Ward Norden, a fishing tackle wholesaler and former fishery biologist, reports that albacore tuna are less than 20 miles off the mouth of the Quinault River.

Worst showing for U.S. men since 1912 BY HOWARD FENDRICH
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
LONDON â€” What a stark statistic for the nation of Bill Tilden and Don Budge, John McEnroe and Jimmy Connors, Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi: Itâ€™s been 101 years since no men from the United States reached Wimbledonâ€™s third round. And the last time it happened, way back in 1912, no Americans even entered the oldest Grand Slam tournament. By the end of Thursday, all 11 U.S. men in the 2013 field at the All England Club were gone, with topseeded Novak Djokovic accounting for the last one by beating 156th-ranked qualifier Bobby Reynolds 7-6 (2), 6-3, 6-1. Earlier in the day, former top-five player James Blake lost to Bernard Tomic of Australia 6-3, 6-4, 7-5, while qualifier Denis Kudla was beaten by Ivan Dodig of
Croatia 6-1, 7-6 (4), 7-5. That trio joined 18thseeded John Isner, 21stseeded Sam Querrey, Ryan Harrison, Steve Johnson, Alex Kuznetsov, Wayne Odesnik, Rajeev Ram and Michael Russell on the way home. â€œItâ€™s a tough stat to hear, but I still believe, right now, where U.S. tennis is, not too many guys are in their prime,â€? said Kudla, a 20-year-old from Arlington, Va., who is ranked 105th. â€œThatâ€™s why the numbers are like that. But a lot of guys are, maybe, in the tail end of their careers and a lot of guys are coming up. â€œMaybe next year, or the year after that, things could change. You have to go through a little bit of a struggle to get some success.â€? Led by top-seeded and defending champion Serena
Williams, the U.S. women still are represented in singles at Wimbledon this year. Williams extended her winning streak to 33 matches, the longest on tour since 2000, by eliminating 100th-ranked qualifier Caroline Garcia of France 6-3, 6-2, while 18-year-old Madison Keys knocked off 30th-seeded Mona Barthel of Germany 6-4, 6-2. Keys next plays 2012 runner-up Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland, and Williams goes from a 19-yearold opponent in Garcia to a 42-year-old opponent in Kimiko Date-Krumm, the oldest woman to reach the third round at Wimbledon since the Open era began in 1968. â€œI have so much respect for her. I think sheâ€™s so inspiring to be playing such high-level tennis at her age,â€? said Williams, who at 31 is the oldest No. 1 in WTA rankings history. â€œAnd sheâ€™s a real danger

Back in form Hernandez was better on Wednesday. After an awful start in Anaheim, Calif., where he gave up seven runs on 12 hits in five innings against the Angels, the Marinersâ€™ ace looked more like himself. He threw seven innings,
giving up two runs on six hits with 11 strikeouts and two walks. â€œI had pretty good command with the fastball, and my breaking ball was much better,â€? Hernandez said. The two runs came on one swing of the bat. Hernandez made a mistake to Neil Walker, who ripped a two-run homer to right. â€œI was behind in the count and tried to throw a sinker and it didnâ€™t sink,â€? Hernandez said. And with his team unable to put up any
offense, Hernandez took a no decision. So what can the Mariners do to fix this issue of meager hitting that has dogged them the last five seasons? Itâ€™s not a matter of working harder. â€œIâ€™ve never had any issues with working or their effort. Itâ€™s always been there,â€? Wedge said. â€œThey bring it every day. Thatâ€™s not it. [Itâ€™s] about getting it and getting over the top. Thatâ€™s where our issue is.â€?
IbaĂąez had no easy solution to it. â€œWe have to keep grinding and keep fighting,â€? he said. â€œItâ€™s a mentality. If you win small battles on a daily basis from pitch to pitch and at-bat to at-bat, then good things will happen for the team.â€? But Wedge is losing patience. â€œYou canâ€™t come to the ballpark and try to win games like this every single day,â€? Wedge said. â€œItâ€™s just too damn hard.â€?
