PORT ANGELES — Clallam County veterans from every generation gathered in Port Angeles on Wednesday to pay their respects during the second Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day. More than 100 veterans and their fami-
lies packed the Clallam County Veterans Center on Francis Street for a one-hour ceremony that featured a rifle salute, a symbolic Prisoners of War-Missing in Action table and the folding of a U.S. flag as the names of 11 local veterans who died in combat were read with every fold. Turn
OLYMPIA — Same-sex couples married elsewhere would be granted the same legal rights and protections in Washington state as domestic partners under a bill headed to the governor’s desk after clearing its last legislative hurdle Wednesday. The measure passed the state Senate, but the only two Democrats to oppose it hail from the Olympic Peninsula. Gay marriage remains illegal in Washington state. But under this bill, same-sex marriages and domestic partnerships performed and recognized elsewhere — including British Columbia and other Canadian provinces — would be eligible for the rights granted to domestic partnerships in Washington. In the past half-decade, lawmakers here have approved hundreds of rights and responsibilities for domestic partnerships, putting them on almost equal footing with marriage. Currently, five states, the District of Columbia and Canada allow same-sex marriages.
Washington becomes the fourth state to approve this type of bill, following Rhode Island, New York and Maryland, according to Senate staff. “I’m ecstatic,” said Rep. Laurie Jinkins, D-Tacoma, the bill’s prime sponsor. “It extends what the voters of this state have already said they want to do for people.” The measure enjoyed wide support among Democrats.
Local legislators It cleared the state House on a 58-39 vote, with most members voting along party lines — including yes votes from both North Olympic Peninsula representatives: Kevin Van De Wege and Steve Tharinger, Democrats from Sequim. In the state Senate, where it passed 28-19, the only Democrats voting against the measure both hail from the Olympic Peninsula: Sens. Jim Hargrove of Hoquiam, and Tim Sheldon of Potlatch. Hargrove’s 24th District includes Clallam and Jefferson counties. Turn
‘It was like I was suffocating’ PT man tells of experience climbing Everest By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Leif Whittaker was completely out of breath and on the verge of passing out. The 26-year-old Port Townsend man was two hours into a grueling push from high camp to the 29,029-foot summit of Mount Everest. “I was breathing with intense depth and frequency, basically hyperventilating, but still nothing was getting in,” Whittaker told a crowd of more than 100 at the Peninsula College Little Theater on Tuesday. “It was like I was suffocating.” Whittaker realized the air valve in his oxygen mask was clogged with frozen spit.
Top of the world He fixed his mask and pushed onward and upward, reaching the top of world
May 25. “Being there, feeling like I’m going to suffocate and being able to kind of overcome that and continue up the mountain was one of the hardest moments of the climb,” he recalled. “And absolutely, it was the hardest thing I have ever done.” Whittaker has made several speaking appearances about his Everest climb in Western Washington and Alaska since returning to Port Townsend. Tuesday’s presentation, sponsored by the Hurricane Ridge Winter Sports Club, was his first in Port Angeles. Attendees paid $20 in advance or $25 at the door. Proceeds went to the Hurricane Ridge Winter Sports Education Fund.

the highest points in Antarctica and South America, respectively, during the 90-minute event. Whittaker is the son of legendary climber Jim Whittaker, who became the first American to summit Everest in 1963. As Leif Whittaker was nearing the summit, he envisioned his father navigating the summit ridge with old-school equipment and a single Sherpa, the expert Nepalese climbers who help carry supplies and set up camps. “I remember looking at it [Everest] and thinking he was crazy,” Leif Whittaker said.

Message in a bottle MOSCOW — Nearly a quarter-century after a German boy tossed a message in a bottle off a ship in the Baltic Sea, he’s received an answer.

It said: “My name is Frank, and I’m five years old. My dad and I are traveling on a ship to Denmark. If you find this letter, please write back to me, and I will write back to you.” The letter, dated 1987, included an address in the town of Coesfeld, Germany.

Gadhafi forces nearly reverse rebels’ gains Key oil town is recaptured By Ryan Lucas
The Associated Press
AJDABIYA, Libya — Moammar Gadhafi’s ground forces recaptured a strategic oil town Wednesday and moved within striking distance of another major eastern city, nearly reversing the gains rebels made since international airstrikes began. Rebels pleaded for more help, while a U.S. official said government forces are making themselves harder to target by using civilian “battle wagons” with makeshift armaments instead of tanks. Western powers kept up the pressure to force Gadhafi out with new airstrikes in other parts of Libya, hints that they may arm the opposition and intense negotiations behind the scenes to find a country to give haven to Libya’s leader of more than 40 years. Even as it advanced militarily, Gadhafi’s regime suffered a blow to its inner circle with the apparent defection of Foreign Minister Moussa Koussa.
U.S. considers ‘all types of assistance’ for Libya The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — The White House said Wednesday it is assessing options for “all types of assistance” to Libyan rebels battling Moammar Gadhafi’s troops, while frustrated lawmakers quoted senior Obama administration Koussa flew from Tunisia to an airport outside London and announced he was resigning from his post, according to a statement from the British government.
Foreign minister resigns Moussa Ibrahim, a Libyan government spokesman in Tripoli, denied that the foreign minister has defected, saying he was in London on a “diplomatic mission.” It was not immediately possible to confirm either statement with Moussa or people close to him. Gadhafi’s justice and interior ministers resigned shortly after
officials as saying the U.S. military’s role will be limited. “No decision has been made about providing arms to the opposition or to any groups in Libya,” said White House press secretary Jay Carney. “We’re not ruling it out or ruling it in.” the uprising began last month, but Koussa would be the first high-profile resignation since the international air campaign began. Airstrikes have neutralized Gadhafi’s air force and pounded his army, but his ground forces remain far better armed, trained and organized than the opposition. The shift in momentum back to the government’s side is hardening a U.S. view that the poorly equipped opposition is probably incapable of prevailing without decisive Western intervention — either an all-out U.S.-led military assault on regime forces or a decision to arm the rebels.
Life-extending prostate cancer drug to be covered by Medicare By Matthew Perrone The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Medicare officials said Wednesday that the program will pay the $93,000 cost of prostate cancer drug Provenge, an innovative therapy that typically gives men suffering from an incurable stage of the disease an extra four months to live. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid said the biotech drug made by Dendreon Corp. is a “reasonable and necessary” medicine. The decision ensures that millions of men would be able to afford the drug through the government-backed health care coverage. With government reimbursement, analysts estimate Provenge could rack up $1 billion in sales next year. The decision, which will be
finalized by June 30, is important for Dendreon because most prostate cancer patients are 65 or older. Medicare is legally prohibited from considering price when deciding whether to pay for a new treatment.
FDA approval The Food and Drug Administration approved Provenge last April, and in most cases, Medicare automatically covers drugs cleared by the agency. But Medicare’s decision to review Provenge last year prompted outrage from some patients and doctors who said the government was looking for a reason to avoid reimbursing for the pricey drug. The infused drug is a first-of-akind treatment in that each dose
is customized to work with a patient’s immune system. Seattle-based Dendreon said Provenge’s price reflects the more than $1 billion spent researching and developing the drug. And prostate cancer patients point out that the median survival time with Provenge is double that of chemotherapy, which is about two months and is marked by significant side effects. “It’s impossible to put a dollar figure on a human life, especially when you’re talking about a drug that has such mild side effects,” said Jim Kiefert, a prostate cancer patient and advocate who was part of the Provenge study. “Of all the treatments I’ve had — with surgery, radiation and hormone treatment — Provenge had fewer side effects than any of them.”

THE KILLER WHALE that drowned a trainer last year at SeaWorld in Orlando resumed performing Wednesday for the first time since the woman’s death. Tilikum participated in the marine park’s signature “Believe” show before a crowd of thousands, more than a year since drowning 40-year-old Dawn Brancheau during a performance Feb. 24, 2010. No trainer has been allowed in the water during the shows since Brancheau’s death, and they remained out of the pool Wednesday for the performance before the audience filled the 5,000-seat Shamu Stadium to capacity.
A JET FIGHTER’S engine exploded and caught fire Wednesday as it prepared to take off from the aircraft carrier John C. Stennis off San Diego, Calif., injuring 10 sailors, the Navy said. The F/A-18C Hornet was starting a training exercise when the accident occurred about 2:50 p.m. on the flight deck. Four sailors were flown to Naval Medical Center San Diego where they were in stable condition. The six others were treated for burn injuries on board the carrier. None of the injuries was life threatening. The pilot was not hurt. There was no significant damage to the carrier, which is based in Bremerton.

He also thanked Eddie Bauer and First Ascent, the main sponsors
of his Everest climb. “Without their sponsorship, there’s no way I would have made it up there in 2010,” he said. Whittaker detailed the team’s 10-day trek to base camp at Everest. They landed at a treacherous high-mountain airport, received blessings from a Buddhist lama and played poker and horseshoes for rupees with other climbers at the 17,000-foot base camp. Whittaker’s team employed 10 Sherpas. One of the scariest parts of the expedition for Whittaker was the infamous Khumbu icefall, a glacier that spills down a narrow valley at a rate of 4 feet per day. Blocks of ice the size of trucks can break loose at any moment. Climbers move as fast as possible through the shifting ice, crossing over deep crevasses with ropes

Whittaker’s team
crossed the Khumbu icefall about a dozen times during its expedition. As for his future, Whittaker said he will continue to seek out new adventures. “There are still countless mountains to climb and countless corners of the world to explore,” Whittaker said.

The measure directs revenue from taxes on hotel stays, restaurants and car rentals to fund local arts and a convention center. The taxes outlined in the House bill are currently going toward paying off the Kingdome, Safeco Field and Qwest Field. The Safeco Field debt is expected to be paid within the year. The House bill extends the 0.5 percent restaurant tax until 2015, even if the
Safeco debt is paid off. It extends indefinitely a 2 percent car rental to raise revenue. Supporters said expanding the convention center will create several thousand new jobs — muchneeded employment growth as the state struggles to come out of the recession. Opponents said lawmakers should keep their promise of ending the taxes when the stadiums are paid off.

Veterans: 36th anniversary of Vietnam War’s end Continued from A1 The statewide observance was initiated by Norman Goodin of Port Angeles. Gov. Chris Gregoire signed a proclamation last month declaring March 30 as Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day, saying it marks the 36th anniversary of the end of U.S. involvement in the Vietnam war. Martin Arnold, president of the Clallam County Veterans Association and a Navy commander during Vietnam, served as the master of ceremonies.
1968, mounted a one-year effort to dedicate a ceremonial day for Vietnam veterans in 2009. “Since then, almost all of the states have adopted Vietnam welcome-home days,” Arnold said. On March 17, the U.S. Senate recognized March 30 as Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day, Arnold said. Goodin thanked his fellow veterans and the people who helped organize the event. He quoted a Latin verse that translates as: “If you wish for peace, be prepared for war.” Before and after the ceremony, the Clallam County
veterans shared stories over lunch and coffee. It gave Bill Larson, an Army veteran who fought in Korea, and Richard Hammer, a Navy veteran who fought in Vietnam, a chance to catch up.
‘Most appropriate’ “I think it’s most appropriate to do this,” Larson said. After he was drafted, Larson said, he “hated it for two weeks.” “Then, I got into it and stayed for 38 years,” he said. Tammy Sullenger, Clallam County veterans coor-
dinator, said Wednesday’s turnout exceeded last year’s for Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day. “It worked out really well,” Sullenger said. Port Angeles High School student Jessalyn Rogers played taps during the ceremony. A group of students from Stevens Middle School were among the attendees. Commissioner Mike Doherty and Administrator Jim Jones represented Clallam County government at the event. Sullenger said all are invited to gather at Veterans Memorial Park on Lincoln Street the last Friday
of every month for the 1 p.m. bell ringing ceremony. The names of Clallam County veterans who died that month are read one by one with each ringing of the bell. According to the governor’s proclamation, more than 58,000 service members made the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam. As of last month, 1,702 Americans were still missing and unaccounted for.

Council bones up on PA actress returns to stage to ‘kill it’ business licenses By Paige Dickerson Peninsula Daily News
It covers about 150 businesses that fall under 18 categories, such as ambulances, dance halls that serve liquor, taxis and pawn shops. A proposal to consider licenses for all businesses was dropped in November after a petition with signatures from 72 business owners was presented at a council meeting.
PORT ANGELES — City Council members heard a pitch from the state Department of Licensing on how the organization could handle the processing of business licenses if the city decides to implement them for all businesses. No decisions were made at the Wednesday meeting, held for informational purposes.

Perry asked if the city could require licenses but charge no fee or if the information for a business directory could be gathered from other sources. Nathan West, city economic and community development director, said that though the city has limited information from its occupancy certificates, it doesn’t currently have anything that can render that information.
Staff time, supplies City Manager Kent Myers said staff time and supplies to keep up with the licenses — even with the state doing much of the paperwork — could not be absorbed into the budget. Jacob said he encouraged cities that were considering joining the state program to think about the purpose of the licenses. “Are you doing it to have an inventory of what is in town? Are you doing it to generate revenue?” he said. “It is important to think about the reasons, especially since this is a city that doesn’t already have licenses.”

Council mulls possible local retail-needs study By Paige Dickerson Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Why don’t more shoppers buy locally? And if they don’t shop in Port Angeles, where do they go? What kinds of businesses are more likely to succeed in Port Angeles? How could current businesses expand? These are question that a proposed retail-needs study would be expected to answer. The City Council at a Tuesday work session discussed the possibility of conducting a retail analysis of the city and a 15-mile driving radius outside the city limit.

Performance Friday “Four Women” will arrive on the stage of the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center, 1203 E. Lauridsen Blvd., at 8 p.m. Friday as part of the center’s springtime “Enter Stage Left” series. Admission is $5. Those who attend will see Trowbridge in her element. Since 2007, she’s performed “Four Women,” by local playwright Rebecca Redshaw, at venues from Port Angeles to LaPush. She’s shaped Bootsie’s drawl and Elizabeth’s New England vowels, perfected Vera’s accent and, as Sheri, been swept back in time by the music of her youth in the 1940s. Trowbridge herself continues to revel in the present and in music and dance.
A pure pleasure Preparing for Friday’s performance of “Four Women” has been pure pleasure. “I love Rebecca’s writing. It’s so easy to play those parts,” Trowbridge said. As for Redshaw, well, she’s in awe of her actress. “I called her and asked if she was interested” in doing the 80-minute show again, “and she said, ‘Absolutely.’” And as Trowbridge has done each time before, “she nails it,” Redshaw added. “We make a good team,” Trowbridge said. “I feel pretty lucky . . . and I love doing this.”

SPOKANE — Spokane police used GPS tracking to arrest a burglary suspect. KXLY reported that police got permission from a judge to secretly attach a GPS device to the car
driven by convicted burglary Robert Frates, who is suspected in a string of beauty parlor burglaries in the city. Detectives were following his GPS signal early Saturday when he pulled
up in front of a salon. Spokeswoman Jennifer DeRuwe said they had probable cause to make the arrest. Frates appeared in court Tuesday and had bail set at $150,000.

PORT ANGELES — In February 2010, Marianne Trowbridge knew she had ovarian cancer. S h e didn’t stop for it, though, not then. At age 86, she was busy choreographing “Caba- Trowbridge ret,” a musical about to go on stage in Olympic Theatre Arts’ new playhouse in Sequim. Once the show was open — and drawing crowds — Trowbridge began chemotherapy. From March 1 on, she went every week to Olympic Medical Cancer Center in Sequim for treatments that made her so ill her doctor asked if she wanted to quit.
She teaches tap dancing to a group of seniors every Tuesday at the Sequim Elks Lodge, and this past winter, she choreographed “Nunsense,” Olympic Theatre Arts’ musical comedy hit. She acknowledged that 2010 “was a tough year.” But Trowbridge kept her mind on the future; she was determined to finish chemotherapy well before it was time to start teaching the “Nunsense” sisters to dance.

to return to the stage — and “kill it,” as they say, in another way. On Friday night, she’s starring in “Four Women,” a story about a mother’s secrets and a daughter’s search for the truth. As she has done five times before, Trowbridge will portray four characters: 101-year-old Elizabeth, the Southern belle Bootsie, the elderly Sheri who struggles with Alzheimer’s and Vera, a young widow who wants to get on with her life.

City Manager Kent Myers said he would return to a future City Council meeting with more information on a consultant firm, Buxton, which has had preliminary conversations with city personnel. Myers discussed the scope of the possible study. “There is a lot of leakage outside the city and outside of Clallam County,” Myers said. “Also, the number of closures in the last year or two have created more opportunities to shop outside of the community.” Myers said that once contracted, Buxton could have an analysis ready in a matter of months. Preliminary discussions with Buxton estimated the price at around $35,000, Myers said. The final price would have to be negotiated if the council decides to move forward with the project. He said the council had the choice of putting the project out to bid but that he had consulted with City Attorney Bill Bloor, who said it didn’t have to go through the bid process if the council was satisfied with Buxton.

Move over, slow down or get ticketed Peninsula Daily News
OLYMPIA — Move over or slow down as you pass emergency personnel at work, or you may get a ticket. Beginning Friday, State Patrol troopers will begin enforcement of the emergency zone law that went into effect Jan. 1.
The law requires motorists to slow down or move over when passing stationary emergency vehicles on the side of the highway. The fine is $124. That will be doubled if the motorist also is guilty of breaking another law, such as speeding, said Dan Coon, State Patrol spokesman. The first 90 days the law
went into effect, troopers only told motorists about the law. The legislation had directed the State Patrol to conduct this education period. As of Friday, troopers will begin writing tickets. They will not conduct “sting” or emergency zone emphases, the State Patrol said, but instead will ticket
motorists on a case-by-case basis or as incidents occur. The law was built on an earlier “move over” law and creates a 200-foot zone around stationary emergency vehicles that have their lights activated. Emergency vehicles include police cars, fire and emergency medical service vehicles, tow trucks and
state Department of Transportation vehicles. The Washington state Legislature passed the original “move over” law in 2007. However, despite this change, the problem continued to get worse, the State Patrol said. Between 2006 and 2009 alone, the State Patrol had
80 collisions involving passing vehicles striking trooper vehicles parked alongside the highway. The major contributing factor in these collisions was speeding or driving too fast for conditions, followed by driving while intoxicated, the State Patrol said.
Lawmakers tell budget writers: No gimmicks By Robin Hindery
The Associated Press
OLYMPIA — The state’s chief financial officer is urging lawmakers to reject what he calls “felony gimmicks” as they work to finalize their proposals for the next two-year budget. State Treasurer Jim McIntire said he’s concerned lawmakers will dust off shortsighted deficitreduction ideas from the past to close the state’s estimated $5 billion budget gap for 2011-2013, at the expense of long-term fiscal stability. Such strategies include adding a 25th month to the 24-month budget period to
help cover expenses — a tactic last seen in 1971 — and borrowing against expected future revenues, or securitization. “The gimmicks we have to watch out for are the ones that create a long-term liability for the state,” McIntire said in a phone interview Tuesday, noting that the 25-month plan took nearly 16 years to pay off. The state adopted a securitization strategy in 2002, borrowing $450 million by selling a portion of its future payments from the 1998 national settlement with tobacco companies. That decision has since stripped vital money from
education and health services, McIntire said, estimating that the state will spend $100 million in the next biennium to repay interest and principal on the debt. “That’s expensive money. Those are junk bond rates,” he said. “Those are long-term revenue streams that we’re locking up for short-term purposes.”
Governor agrees McIntire’s concerns have been echoed by Democratic Gov. Chris Gregoire, who as state attorney general served as a lead negotiator in the tobacco settlement.

But several instructors will be from here. “We have more than our share of top paddling teachers right here on the North Olympic Peninsula, like Deb Volturno, Rob Casey and Gary Korb,” King said. Volturno will lead a clinic on “Debacle Deterrence,” her title for a twohour risk-management clinic, and host a show featuring the exploits of the Tsunami Rangers, of which she is a long-standing member. Volturno and Korb will teach experienced paddlers how to build their skills in the surf. Standup Paddleboard instructor Casey will lead three clinics for beginner paddlers and one for more experienced sport practitioners in the surf. New this year will be a rescue skills contest, a kayak polo tourney, clinics on racing skills for those who want to join the growing paddlesports competition circuit and, on both weekend mornings, an hour of movement with the Feldenkrais method titled “Whole Body Kayaking” and led by Peninsula local Jory Kahn.

She told reporters last week that if recent rumors of securitization are true, “somebody needs to tell me so I can say no.” Jeff Reading, a spokesman for the Senate’s majority Democrats, said the Senate was not considering either securitization or a 25th month as part of its budget plan. House Majority Leader Pat Sullivan, D-Covington, called both strategies “very, very unlikely” but said at this stage, “everything is on the table, and it always has been.” “There’s this spectrum of things that you can do, things that are very difficult to do and things that
are so bad you don’t want to talk about it,” he said Wednesday, adding that securitization and a 25th month fall under the third category.
‘No gimmicks’ Rep. Gary Alexander, the GOP’s budget negotiator in the House, said Republicans have crafted a list of a dozen principles to serve as guidelines for ongoing negotiations, and one of them is “no gimmicks.” “Certainly, to us, that includes the 25th month and issues such as securitization, so we attempt to try to avoid them,” the Olympia lawmaker said.
Leaders from the House and Senate have given no clear indication of when they will unveil their plans to counter Gregoire’s budget proposal, released in December. This year, the House is proposing its budget first. Sullivan said his colleagues were “getting close” to an agreement and he hoped the plan would be ready by early next week. Earlier this month, the state’s chief economist said tax collections will drop by an estimated $780 million in the next two years, bringing the deficit to about $5.3 billion.
Briefly . . . State traffic fatalities drop in 2010 OLYMPIA — Traffic fatalities in Washington state continued their downward trend in 2010, reaching the lowest level in at least 35 years, the state Traffic Safety Commission said Wednesday. There were 448 known traffic-related deaths last year — down 44 from 2009. That represents a drop of more than 200 fatalities over a five-year period and is the lowest figure since the Fatality Analysis Reporting System launched in 1975, said commission spokesman MJ Haught. Transportation officials said the steady decline is a product of tpublic education campaigns, highway safety projects and strong enforcement of traffic laws. The state has set a goal of eliminating traffic fatalities by 2030 as part of its Target Zero plan established in 2000. Washington State Patrol Chief John Batiste said most traffic deaths are caused by speeding, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol and not wearing a seat belt. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, speeding was blamed for 40 percent of the 2,866 traffic fatalities in Washington between 2005 and 2009, while alcohol impairment played a role in 36 percent of the accidents. More crashes occurred in
rural areas than in urban settings.

Peninsula Daily News for Thursday, March 31, 2011
If Libya, why not intervene elsewhere? IF THERE WERE an award for stating the obvious when it comes to the Middle East it would go to The New York Times. On its front page last FriCal day, the newspaper ran a Thomas story headlined, “Muslim Group Is Rising Force In New Egypt.” What group would that be? Why, the Muslim Brotherhood, of course. We have been repeatedly assured by certain pundits and members of the Obama administration that the Brotherhood are a small minority with no major influence in Egypt and that those Cairo protesters clamoring for “democracy” that led to the downfall of President Hosni Mubarak would be the ones to chart the country’s future. Each time another myth is busted, the deniers of what is happening throughout the region simply create a new myth, one
they desperately cling to against all evidence to the contrary. It would be well for the willfully blind to memorize the motto of the Muslim Brotherhood: “Allah is our objective, the Prophet is our leader; the Quran is our law; dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.” Got that? The London Daily Telegraph interviewed Abdel-Hakim alHasidi, leader of the rebellion in Libya. He admitted some of the rebels have ties to al-Qaida — but not to worry. Hasidi claimed that even members of al-Qaida “are patriots and good Muslims, not terrorists.” Sure they are. We should take them at their word, even though they have been known to lie. At what point do we begin to wake up to this nonsense? Is anyone at the State Department paying attention? How about the White House? President Obama has been forced by growing criticism to better explain his non-policy in Libya and his reasoning behind bombing the country without
deposing Moammar Gadhafi. The president went to the United Nations Security Council for a resolution, not Congress, for constitutional approval to launch air strikes on Libya. Perhaps this is an extension of his stated belief that America is no more exceptional than any other country. “While regime change in Libya is the U.S. policy,” reports ABC News, “Gadhafi’s removal is not the goal of the operation.” No, President Obama tells us the United States is in Libya “to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe.” Huh? What about Syria, where security forces are shooting civilians in the streets on the apparent orders of President Bashar al-Assad? Under the new “humanitarian” rules of engagement, shouldn’t president Obama send bombers to Syria? Will the United States seek authorization from the U.N. for military air strikes there? And then there is Bahrain, where thousands of protesters spilled into the streets last week
after Friday prayers and were confronted by security forces firing tear gas and pellets. Can live ammunition be far behind? If humanitarianism is the new standard for U.S. military intervention, what about bombing North Korea, liberating Tibet, strafing The Congo, Darfur and scores of other countries where authoritarian regimes deny basic human rights to their people? In last Saturday’s Wall Street Journal, Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry wrote that what is taking place in the Middle East “could be the most important geostrategic shift since the fall of the Berlin Wall.” That’s the wrong analogy. When the Berlin Wall fell, people were liberated. What is happening in the Middle East could be the most important geostrategic shift since communists came to power in Russia and China, oppressing and killing millions. This is just the beginning. Saudi Arabia is next, and already the fault lines in that

creaking monarchy are visible. The hand of Iran is behind much of this turmoil, and behind Iran is al-Qaida and Osama bin Laden’s vision for the toppling of every regime in the region, each to be replaced by the most religiously fundamentalist and politically repressive of leaders. While President Obama fiddles, the Middle East burns. At a private dinner last week in Washington, attended by a group of conservative journalists, someone said if a Democrat must be president, he would rather it be Hillary Clinton than Barack Obama. There was general head nodding. Mine was among them. ________ Cal Thomas is a Fox TV network commentator and syndicated news columnist. His column appears on this page every Thursday.

the supposed recreational need for an additional, legal, mind-altering drug. Skip the debate about tax income. We already have an unmanageable
cost with the misuse of alcohol, tobacco and prescription drugs. Safety concerns alone would limit acceptable use of any mind-altering drug
in the workplace or while operating machinery, driving, flying airplanes or providing services such as firefighting, law enforcement or health care.
The use of mind-altering drugs (including marijuana) limits logical thought, impairs motor skills and leads to potentially high-risk activity. Can we accept more death and crippling accidents on our highways? There is a strong argument that all the mindaltering drugs lower productivity, reduce the ability to learn and potentially create a psychological dependence. Legalized marijuana adds one more unwanted cost to society. How our legal system implements penalties for irresponsible behavior can be debated, but the end goal should be a citizenry of logical, responsible, learning, productive people. Legalized use of more mind-altering drugs does not help us reach that goal. Sheldon McGuire, Sequim
Troy Davis and ‘the machinery of death’ ON MARCH 28, the Supreme Court refused to hear the death penalty case of Troy Anthony Davis. It was his Amy last appeal. Goodman Davis has been on Georgia’s death row for close to 20 years after being convicted of shooting to death off-duty police officer Mark MacPhail in Savannah. Since his conviction, seven of the nine nonpolice witnesses have recanted their testimony, alleging police coercion and intimidation in obtaining the testimony. Despite the doubt surrounding his case, Troy Anthony Davis could be put to death within weeks. Davis is now at the mercy of the Georgia State Board of Pardons and Parole, which could commute his sentence to life without parole. It will be a tough fight, despite widespread national and international support for clemency from figures such as Pope Benedict XVI, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and former President Jimmy Carter.
Davis’ sister, Martina Correia, has tirelessly campaigned for justice for her brother. In response to the Supreme Court decision, she told me: “We were really shocked and appalled yesterday when we received the news . . . no one wants to look at the actual innocence, and no one wants to look at the witness recantation as a real strong and viable part of this case, even though new witnesses have come forward. “There needs to be a global mobilization about Troy’s case, and the fact that in the United States it’s not unconstitutional to execute an innocent person needs to be addressed once and for all by the U.S. Supreme Court.” Correia brings up a significant but little-known fact about death penalty law in the U.S. — namely, that current court precedent allows the execution of innocent people. Remarkably, the Supreme Court, in a 1993 opinion, suggested that “actual innocence” is not a sufficient cause to be let free. The court only cares if the legal rules are followed, while acknowledging that innocent people could still be convicted and put to death. In such cases, a prisoner could appeal for executive clemency.

It seems the court has not yet learned what many states have, that the death penalty system is broken beyond repair. Illinois Troy Davis recently became the 16th state in the United Sates to outlaw the death penalty. Gov. Pat Quinn, after signing the bill into law, said: “I have concluded that our system of imposing the death penalty is inherently flawed . . . it is impossible to devise a system that is consistent, that is free of discrimination on the basis of race, geography or economic circumstance, and that always gets it right.” He follows an earlier Illinois governor, Republican George Ryan, who commuted the death sentences of 120 death row prisoners in that state. Both Illinois governors bring to mind former Supreme Court Justice Harry A. Blackmun. In a dissenting opinion in 1994, after the court denied yet another death row inmate’s last appeal, Blackmun wrote: “From this day forward, I no longer shall tinker with the
machinery of death.” Tinkering with the machinery of death is just what some states seem to be doing. Thiopental is one of the three drugs used in the lethal “cocktail” administered in most executions in this country. Hospira, the last U.S.-based company to make sodium thiopental, quit making the controlled drug, creating a national shortage. States began scrambling to keep their death chambers wellstocked. When California borrowed a similar drug from Arizona, California Undersecretary of Corrections and Rehabilitation Scott Kernan wrote in an email, “You guys in AZ are life savers . . . ” Georgia, it turns out, seems to have illegally imported its supply from a dubious, London-based company called Dream Pharma Ltd., run by a husband and wife out of a rented space in the back of a driving school. Georgia is not currently licensed by the Drug Enforcement Administration to import controlled substances, so the DEA recently confiscated the state’s thiopental supply. Pending an investigation, Georgia will not have this key ingredient and will not be able to execute Davis or any other death row inmate.

On the same day that the Supreme Court denied Davis’ appeal, Amnesty International issued its annual report on the death penalty. The United States remains among the world’s leading executioners, along with China, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and North Korea. In addition to leading the fight for her brother, Martina Correia has been fighting for her own life. The day of the court decision was the 10th anniversary of her ongoing battle against breast cancer. Her face adorns the mobile mammography van that helps save the lives of poor women in Savannah.

Daughter despises dad’s girlfriend DEAR ABBY: I am in my late 30s and have been dating “Rick” for six years. The problem is his daughter, “Janet.” We used to get along, but now she hates me. She calls me awful names and says she wishes I would go away. I recently asked Rick to marry me. Now Janet says I am “desperate,” and she refuses to talk to either of us. I don’t know what to say to her. I’m appalled at her attitude toward me, the language she uses and the things she’s saying about me to her friends on the Internet. She won’t listen to her dad. Her mother is encouraging her behavior and has been threatening me. I can’t get Janet to understand that her dad and I love each other, that it’s all right for a woman to ask a man to marry her and it’s not out of “desperation.” Please help. Not Desperate in Louisiana
For Better or For Worse
Dear Not Desperate: Toughen up. Recognize that for all of the joy Rick brings you, Janet is his extremely immature daughter, and she’s part of the package. How old is the girl? She appears to have years of growing up to do. You can’t change her behavior, so go on with your life without seeking her approval. Unfortunately, nasty ex-wives are nothing new. If the ex does anything beyond “threaten” you, file a police report and let them deal with her.

Dear Abby: Can common sense be learned or taught? Some people seem to be born with it. Others have “book smarts” but struggle with everyday common sense.

Dear Bookworm: Nobody has everything. Your strength is your intellect. Not everyone is a good student, and it can affect their self-esteem as much or more than your worry about not having common sense. If it’s any comfort, people usually acquire common sense in the school of life. In other words, they learn from the mistakes they make. I’m sure you have done that and will continue to do so. Dear Abby: My 34-year-old daughter blames me for her poor penmanship. When she was a baby, she started grabbing things with her left hand. Her pediatrician advised me to force her to use her right hand. Could she have had better penmanship if she had not been forced to use her right hand? Guilty Mom in Madison, Ala. Dear Guilty Mom: Probably. Your pediatrician must have been very old or very “old school.” I am also left-handed, and when I was a child, educators had stopped forcing children to write in a way that was unnatural for them. I was taught to properly hold a pencil, we practiced printing and cursive penmanship, and I am told my handwriting is beautiful.

Make whatever you are handed work for you. Don’t bother arguing when taking action is so much more effective. 4 stars AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): An old idea will help you turn something you are working toward now into a positive endeavor. A love interest will not turn out the way you expect. Be careful not to disrupt a relationship that means a lot to you by making a stupid choice. 3 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Love is at an all-time high. Putting pressure on someone you want to be with will have its advantages, but keep in mind that if you ask for too much, your plan will backfire. Consider everyone involved in your circle before you proceed. 3 stars

Northwest ready for a tsunami? Threat may catch region off guard By Alicia Chang
The Associated Press
CANNON BEACH, Ore. — When the big one hits the Pacific Northwest, the best place to escape the wall of water moving at jetliner speed from 50 miles off the coast may be a City Hall on stilts. Once the ground finishes two to four minutes of lurching and shaking, residents and tourists in Cannon Beach would flock to the refuge on concrete columns 14 feet above the waves racing beneath. They would . . . if the refuge gets built. There’s nothing like it from Northern California to British Columbia and, so far, no money for anything like it. It’s an example of how underprepared the West Coast is for an earthquake and tsunami on the scale of what happened in Japan. Scientists say it’s inevitable that an offshore seismic menace called the Cascadia Subduction Zone will one day unleash a megaquake. The last time it happened was 300 years ago when a magnitude 9 shaker spawned enormous ocean waves that slammed into the West Coast and damaged Japanese fishing villages. Mindful of the risks of waves as high as 60 feet, communities in the Pacific Northwest have worked on their defenses, installing sirens to warn of dangerous waves, posting hazard signs to mark inundation zones, designating evacuation routes and holding evacuation drills.
Washington state In Washington state, emergency managers are working with coastal communities to develop local plans for elevated evacuation structures that could do double duty, such as steel-reinforced earthen berms 20 feet high that could support bleachers at a stadium. “Right now, there’s no funding for anything like this, through state and federal funding,” said John Schelling of the state Emergency Management. He argues, though, that it’s important to develop the plans for the day when money is available. That’s particularly the case, he said, for places on the Pacific Northwest coast that don’t have high ground close to the beach, such as the flats of southwest Washington’s Long Beach peninsula.

beauty of rain
Raindrops fall on a decorative planter in downtown Port Angeles on Wednesday as steady showers fall on the North Olympic Peninsula. Rain, heavy at times, is expected to fall across the region through Friday, prompting flood watches and warnings on many flood-prone rivers. AccuWeather five-day forecast, Page C10.
Man charged with assaulting two deputies pleads not guilty By Paige Dickerson Peninsula Daily News
SEQUIM — A Sequim man charged with assaulting two Clallam County deputies has pleaded not guilty to second-degree assault, third-degree assault and harassment. Ha-Qwenith Zachary Grinnell, 21, was no longer in custody in Clallam County jail Wednesday. At an arraignment last Friday, one of the original two counts of third-degree assault was increased to second-degree. Grinnell, a former Sequim High School foot-
he deputies used electrical control devices and pepper spray to gain control of him ball player, will have a status hearing at 1:30 p.m. Friday, April 15, at 1:30 p.m. A three-day trial is scheduled for May 16. Deputies Michael Dick and Todd Yarnes were treated at Olympic Medical Center in Port Angeles and discharged that night after Grinnell struck and kicked
them March 14, according to court documents. The deputies used electrical control devices and pepper spray to gain control of him, court documents said. Dick sustained a head laceration and extremity abrasions. Yarnes suffered a slight concussion, facial scratches and abrasions to the arms and leg regions. Because he suffered a loss of consciousness, loss of memory and could not return to work for at least two weeks, the injuries were deemed more serious
than originally thought, court documents said. Grinnell also was charged with felony harassment against a family member. Court documents said he allegedly threatened to kill a family member, court documents said. A court order not to contact the family member he allegedly threatened also was removed at the family member’s request at the Friday hearing.

Scientists in the Pacific Northwest hadn’t understood the geology and the threat it poses until recent decades, when they discovered evidence of big quakes near the coast over the past 10,000 years — about 20 the size of the March 11 quake in Japan. By contrast, the Japanese have long paid close attention to quakes and tsunamis. Their written records from 1700 allowed North American scientists a few years ago to fix the timing of the last Pacific Northwest megaquake, right down to the hour it occurred. So the death and damage caused by this month’s earthquake and tsunami in Japan were worrisome on the other side of the Pacific. “We’re not nearly as well-prepared as the Japanese, and clearly, they were overwhelmed,” said Bill Steele, coordinator of the University of Washington’s Seismology Laboratory. “It is a problem.” Elevated refuges are among the Japan-style responses to the tsunami threat that experts say helped to mitigate the destruction and death. And these are just pieces in a giant puzzle for the Northwest in dealing with the aftermath of a disaster that could bring Katrinastyle devastation to a region of 13 million people west of the Cascade Range. In Cannon Beach, Jay Raskin is terrified at the prospect — “terrified” is a word he uses three times in the first few minutes of an interview. The former City Council member and mayor has proposed replacing the current City Hall, seismically unsound, with a two-story building on stilts to provide refuge to as many as 1,500 people. The second floor would house city offices. Atop that would be a terrace. The idea is still conceptual, awaiting vetting by
structural and geophysical engineers. That could add to the tentative $4 million price tag Raskin puts on it. There are no current plans in California to build special tsunami-resistant structures, but some communities are looking at ways to herd residents to existing buildings perched on higher ground in the event of dangerous waves, said Rick Wilson, senior engineering geologist with the California Geological Survey.

Derbies coming to dock near you BLESSED ARE THE litigious. They are given two salmon derbies where there was once one. Six weeks after the OlymMatt pic Peninsula Salmon Derby Schubert had its first run, the inaugural Discovery Bay Volunteer Fire Fighters Salmon Derby comes to the North Olympic Peninsula. Smaller than its fellow Discovery Bay Salmon Derby offshoot, the event harkens back to derbies of years past. “It’s a community derby,” event organizer Barbara Knoepfle said. “It’s the one we’ve always had.” As has been well-documented in this column space, the original event — the Discovery Bay Salmon Derby — went away for a year after groups from Discovery Bay and Gardiner clashed over where its proceeds should go. The Gardiner residents held their event Presidents Day weekend, a mega-derby that stretched all the way from Tongue Point near Joyce to Foulweather Bluff in Marine Area 9 (Admiralty Inlet). Now the Discovery Bay Volunteer Fire Fighters get their turn with this weekend’s fishing engagement. And much like in the years before the Disco Derby was canceled in 2010, western boundaries will not go past Dungeness Spit. Fishing will instead be limited to waters east of the spit and Hein Bank, including most of Area 9 toward Double Bluff and Foulweather Bluff. “We like to keep it like it was,” Knoepfle said. “And the fish from the other derby, the bigger ones, all came from the Port Townsend area anyway.” Indeed, those waters produced nearly all of the largest blackmouth during the Olympic Peninsula derby, despite the fact most of the fish came from the Port Angeles area. Fittingly, the winner — an 18.90-pounder caught by Rob Schmidt of Sequim — was caught in Discovery Bay itself. The next three largest fish were all brought back to the docks in Port Townsend, ranging from 18.05 to 17.5 pounds in size. Those were all fin-clipped hatchery fish, per derby rules. Only fin-clipped fish can be entered into this weekend’s ladder as well. The top fish will net $3,000, second-place gets $1,200, third $750 and fourth $500. There will also be other goodies up for grabs thanks to donations from area businesses. The prize ceremony will be held at 3:30 p.m. on Sunday at the Discovery Bay Store, 282322 U.S. Highway 101. Tickets cost $30 to fish for one day or both and are available at several area merchants. Proceeds benefit the Discovery Bay Volunteer Fire Department.

Cougs’ future uncertain Fortunes rest on whether Thompson bolts for NBA The Associated Press
PULLMAN — Klay Thompson held up his index finger as Washington State students chanted “one more year” following the team’s overtime victory over Northwestern in the quarterfinals of the NIT last week. But the leading scorer in the Pac-10 was just indicating the Cougars had one more game, which they lost to Wichita State on Tuesday. Whether Thompson returns for his senior year is an open question. Thompson had one of his worst games in the 75-44
loss to the Shockers, going 1-for-10 and tying his season low with six points. “I think it’s just too early to tell,” said Thompson, a junior who led the Pac-10 with 22 points per game. “Just trying to enjoy the time that I have with my teammates.” Thompson, the son of former No. 1 draft pick Mychal Thompson, has indicated repeatedly that he will decide after the season if he will enter this summer’s NBA draft. The 6-foot-6 guard set a WSU season scoring record with 733 points, and a
3-point field goal record with 98. He shot 44 percent from the field and 83 percent from the free throw line, and averaged more than five rebounds and nearly four assists per game. Coach Ken Bone, who has indicated that he believes there is a 50-50 chance Thompson will return, said nothing has changed. Bone has said WSU may also lose junior post DeAngelo Casto to a pro team in Europe because Casto has a child and is struggling to make ends meet. “It’s just a matter of time and see what type of information they are able to gather,” Bone said Tuesday. Washington State (2213) finished on a downer.
The 31-point loss was their worst of the season and their 44 points were second-lowest of the season. They did not make a 3-pointer for the first time since 2009. But the 22 wins were tied for 10th most in team history, and they reached the semifinals of the NIT for the first time. With no seniors on this team, Washington State figures to be even better next year if Thompson and Casto return. If they leave, the Cougars will return Faisal Aden (12.9 ppg), point guard Reggie Moore (9 ppg) and forwards Brock Motum (7.7 ppg), Marcus Capers (5.9 ppg) and Abe Lodwick (3.6 ppg) among players who saw significant minutes.

Party may be over Fiesta Bowl on notice after scandal revealed The Associated Press
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — The head of the BCS put the Fiesta Bowl on notice Wednesday: “Follow the letter of the law” or lose its place in college football’s lucrative championship system. BCS officials challenged the Fiesta Bowl to persuade them that extravagant and improper spending behind the firing of longtime CEO and President John Junker will never happen again. Otherwise, the BCS said it can kick out the Fiesta Bowl altogether. There are plenty of others eager to jump in. “They know that if they want to do business with us, they need to follow the letter of the law,” BCS executive director Bill Hancock told The Associated Press. “If they fail to do so, they do it at their own peril.” The Fiesta Bowl released an internal report on Tuesday that uncovered hundreds of thousands, perhaps even millions of dollars, in “excessive compensation, nonbusiness and inappropriate expenditures and inappropriate gifts.” Arizona prosecutors are looking into possible criminal charges, focusing on accusations that top officials pressured employees into donating money to favored political candidates and then reimbursed them with bowl funds. Fiesta Bowl officials placed the blame squarely on Junker, who made $600,000 a year as the affable face of the organization. Over the past two decades, he led the upstart bowl from just another postseason game to one of the largest and most prestigious. “I must say that the actions undertaken and orchestrated by John Junker and others are shocking and completely unacceptable,” said Duane Woods, the Fiesta Bowl chairman. “Their actions, unfortunately, have tainted the stellar reputation that the Fiesta Bowl has worked so hard to maintain for more than 40 years.”
The Bowl Championship Series also includes the Rose, Orange and Sugar bowls, and draws tens of millions of dollars a year in television revenue, ticket sales and merchandise. Frito-Lay, whose product “Tostitos” is the Fiesta Bowl’s title sponsor, said it was “disappointed” and was monitoring the situation.
Critics come out The scandal rekindled long-standing criticism of the BCS, one of three organizations whose polls crown national champions. The others are the AP and ESPN/ USA Today. Matthew Sanderson, cofounder of Playoff PAC, a group advocating a playoff system to determine a national college football champion, accused the BCS of making the Fiesta Bowl a scapegoat. “Any BCS effort to expel the Fiesta Bowl would be a hypocritical act, given the documented irregularities at these other BCS bowls,” he said. “And who’s to say we won’t find the same type of shockingly questionable behavior when the curtain is peeled back at the BCS’s Orange Bowl and Sugar Bowl?” Hancock said he had “absolutely no indication” of similar behavior by the BCS’ other three bowls. The BCS set up a task force to help determine if the leaders of major college football want to continue doing business in Arizona. “We want to send a clear and very strong signal to the public,” Pac-10 Commissioner Larry Scott told the AP, “about the standards and values the conferences that make up the BCS stand for.” The Fiesta Bowl, played at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., is in the second season of a fouryear deal to be one of the four bowls that rotate hosting the national championship game. Asked if he was confident there is nothing in the contract to stop the BCS from ending the relationship immediately, Hancock replied: “Yes, I am confident.”
Even the marketing arm of the organization thought 2010 was going to mark Seattle’s return to the postseason with the tag “Believe Big.” Instead, 2010 became an embarrassing thud of mistakes and missteps, from the Mariners’ punchless offense, to the story about Ken Griffey Jr. sleeping in the clubhouse and his abrupt retirement, to the firing of manger Don Wakamatsu — the first Japanese-American manager in baseball — on Japanese heritage day at the ballpark. “I would never want to try and oversell a ball club which I tried not to do a year ago,” Seattle general manager Jack Zduriencik said. “Everybody was selling it and I was like ‘Guys let’s back off a little bit here. We still need another big bat, I’d like to have another starter.’ “I said it many, many times, but I didn’t expect us to underachieve the way we did.” But coming off a second 101-loss season in the last three years, the Mariners were hamstrung by costly contracts that limited what Zduriencik could do in the offseason to bring immediate changes while trying to keep payroll around the level of a year ago. Hence, the bridge notion for the 2011 season. Milton Bradley will start in left field and will likely be the Mariners’ No. 3 hitter as long as his spring training performance carries into the regular season. But his $12 million contract comes off the books after the 2011 season.
Same goes for Jack Wilson and his $5 million deal. Seattle moved Wilson from shortstop to second base, providing a strong defensive infield, but also making clear that Brendan Ryan is likely the Mariners’ shortstop of the future and Wilson’s time in Seattle could be running out with top prospect Dustin Ackley sitting at Triple-A. Others, like left-handed pitcher Erik Bedard and designated hitter Jack Cust, are playing on oneyear contracts as well.
Locked in The Mariners also hope those they have locked up for a number of years can either continue their growth or rebound from disappointing 2010 seasons. Young first baseman Justin Smoak closed 2010 strong after a demotion to the minors. New catcher Miguel Olivo should bring leadership behind the dish, but will need to add a little offensive pop. Center fielder Franklin Gutierrez continues to be bothered by stomach problems that have affected his game, while Seattle believes Chone Figgins’ move back to third base will lead to a more productive season at the plate. Still, there are major offensive questions that may again overshadow what could be a strong pitching staff. “You’d love to have two more big power bats, but we don’t,” Zduriencik said. “We have what we have and we’re relying on guys to have bounce back years or some guys to grow into big league players and play the game the right way.”

Google introduces social tool, settles privacy charge By Claire Miller The New York Times
SAN FRANCISCO — Google is trying social networking again, even as it pays a price for earlier privacy blunders. Google introduced its latest social tool on Wednesday, the same day it settled with the Federal Trade Commission over charges of deceptive privacy practices last year for Buzz, the social networking tool in Gmail. Under the settlement, Google agreed to start a privacy program, permit audits for 20 years and face $16,000 fines for any future privacy misrepresentations. This is the first time the FTC has charged a company with such violations and ordered it to start a privacy program, the commission said. The new social networking tool, called +1, lets people annotate Google search results and ads so they can recommend Web pages to friends and acquaintances. It is the biggest feature yet in Google’s long-awaited social networking toolkit. The introduction of +1 and the FTC charges highlight two of Google’s biggest challenges — heightened
Obama calls for one-third cut in oil imports by 2025 By Julie Pace
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama on Wednesday called for a onethird reduction in U.S. oil imports by 2025, reviving a long-elusive goal of reducing America’s dependence on foreign supplies as political unrest rocks the Middle East and gasoline prices rise at home. Tackling an issue that has vexed nearly every U.S. president since Richard Nixon, Obama said the country can’t solve the problem with quick fixes and political gimmicks.
Little new But he offered little in the way of new initiatives, relying instead on a litany of energy proposals he has already called for, including boosting domestic oil production, increasing the use of biofuels and natural gas,
and making vehicles more energy efficient. Obama also embraced nuclear power as a critical part of America’s energy future, despite increased safety concerns following the earthquake and tsunami in Japan that severely damaged a nuclear power plant there.
Thorough safety review He vowed a thorough safety review of all U.S. plants, incorporating lessons learned from Japan, but said nuclear power still holds enormous potential for the U.S. “We can’t simply take it off the table,” Obama said during a nearly hour-long speech at Georgetown University. Moving the U.S. away from its dependence on foreign oil and toward clean energy technologies was a key part of the domestic
agenda Obama outlined in his January State of the Union address. That agenda has since been overshadowed by events around the world, from the uprisings in the Middle East and subsequent U.S. military intervention in Libya to the humanitarian and nuclear crisis in Japan. But with gas prices on the rise as the president readies his reelection bid, the White House wants to regain its footing on domestic issues before public anger over the spike in energy costs take hold.
Domestic drilling Gas prices have jumped more than 50 cents a gallon this year, reaching a national average of $3.58 a gallon last week, according to AAA’s daily survey. Republicans have placed the blame for the spike in
prices on Obama’s policies, arguing that the administration has been too slow in approving new permits for oil drilling and calling on the president to open up areas along the Atlantic Coast and near Alaska, where drilling its currently banned.
Striking back The president struck back at that criticism during his speech, noting that his administration has approved 39 shallow-water drilling permits since new standards were put in place last year following the Gulf oil spill, and seven new deep-water drilling permits in recent weeks. “So any claim that my administration is responsible for gas prices because we’ve shut down oil production might make for a useful political sound bite but doesn’t track with reality,” Obama said.

OLYMPIA — A bill to set up a foreclosure mediation process for troubled Washington homeowners has cleared another hurdle in the state Legislature. The proposal, House Bill 1362, passed the state Senate in a 36-11 vote, and, if it becomes law, supporters said it would go a long way toward keeping state residents from losing their homes. Among those voting yes was Jim Hargrove, D-Holquiam, who represents the North Olympic Peninsula. The bill still needs to be reconciled with the version that passed the House and be signed by the governor to become law. If that happens, it would increase the number of housing counselors in Washington, set up third-party mediation and extend a requirement that lenders “meet and confer” with borrowers facing foreclosure. The measure would be funded through a $250 fee banks would have to pay every time they foreclose on someone.

Base grows JOINT BASE LEWISMCCHORD — The Army is moving the headquarters of the 16th Combat Aviation Brigade from Fort Wainwright, Alaska, to Joint Base LewisMcChord. The Army also said Wednesday that some units currently stationed at Fort Hood, Texas, will move to Lewis-McChord. The changes will add about 1,400 soldiers and 44 helicopters to the base near Tacoma, which currently is without a combat aviation brigade. The additions will raise the total number of JBLM service members to nearly 45,000 and the total number of copters to 143. Eight years ago, Fort Lewis had 19,000 activeduty soldiers.

Candy prices up HERSHEY, Pa. — The Hershey Co. on Wednesday said it raised wholesale prices by 9.7 percent.

The announcement comes weeks before one of the most popular candy consumption holidays — Easter — when Americans spend about $2 billion on candy.

The FDA said such findings were to be expected in the coming days because of the nuclear reactor crisis in Japan, and that the levels were expected to drop relatively quickly.

Pine Hill’s pioneering gas station Business area boomed in PA neighborhood SEVERAL READERS RECOGNIZED the Feb. 24 “Picture from the Past” as Pine Hill Service Station, which was on the corner of Eighth and Pine streets in Port Angeles. The additional photo is a view taken farther north. It shows the name of the service station along with the gas pumps and office. Both photos were taken between 1926 and 1929. [Rex Gerberding shared these photos from his collection for the column. Rex was able to locate the Pine Hill Station in a 1936 phone book he possesses.] Pine Hill Service station was built in the early 1920s on the south side of Eighth Street. The sign in the one photo indicates 336 as the business’ telephone number. The 1925 Port Angeles phone directory lists George and Albert Lamoureux as owners. In 1932, the service station’s name was changed to Lamoureux Service No. 1. By 1935, it had returned to the Pine Hill Service name, but was listed under a different phone number. Bertha Norris says her brother-in-law, Basil Decker, is the man on the right of the larger photo. He worked as a mechanic for the Lamoureuxs. From the Port Angeles city/ county directory, it appears that the Lamoureuxs had the service station until 1952. M.A. Hunley then owned it until 1956, when Dick’s Auto became the listed owner. By 1959, Paul Markley had established a repair shop, M&M Auto, in addition to Pine Hill Service. In 1962, Pine Hill Service was closed and M&M Auto became the sole business at the location. In 1963, George Mangano built a new building for Markley, who then opened a motorcycle shop called Markley’s HarleyDavidson. By 1965, Mangano had purchased Markley’s shop, and opened his own business, and named it, PA Cycle Hub”.
Pine Hill Service was a landmark back when Eighth Street in Port Angeles was part of Secondary State Highway 9A in the 1920s. Basil Decker, a mechanic, is at right in the photo above and left in the below photo, which was last month’s “Picture from the Past.”
BACK WHEN Street. Irene’s Alexander brother, Jack Estes, said Bailey’s grocery was a big competitor for his dad. He also said his grandfather was the butcher for the store. According to Doug Bailey, his dad, Roland, built another store as well as a gas station in 1935, farther down the block to the west. The address of the gas station was 514 W. Eighth St. Later on it was sold and had several different owners. The store, Doug said, was named Bailey’s Grocery Store and Meat Market and was located at 518 W. Eighth St. They did not actually have a meat market, Doug said, but rather a cold chest to keep meat for their customers.

where the owner refurbished old cars. “He took old rusty autos and turned them into gold,” Stan said. Mike Owens, a Port Angeles resident who grew up in the Hoko-Ozette area, remembers his family going past the Pine Hill Station in the 1960s, on their way into town. The route they traveled was on state Highway 9A (now state Highway 112), then down C Street and on into town via Eighth Street. Dan Mangano said he has fond memories of the Pine Hill corner, but does not remember the service station. By the time he was a child, his dad, George’s, ‘\PA Cycle Hub was an active business at the corner of Pine and Eighth. David Hassell remembers going past the motorcycle shop on his way to Elks Memorial Playfield for Little League practice.
In later years Since the demise of Pine Hill Service, there have been several businesses at that location. DJ Cycle was at 502½ W.
Eighth St. (the part of the building across the back of the lot) in 1969-1970. The site sat vacant for a year until Gary’s Plumbing moved there. In 1978, Gary moved to “The Barn” on U.S. Highway 101. M&P Doors now occupies that space. Over the years, M&P Doors shared the address with at least two barbershops — Wayne’s was there until Paul’s Barber Shop came in 1995. The front section of that building housed several businesses after P.A. Cycle Hub left — including Tevco Electronics, Oroweat, PA Sign Shop, Hi Tech Electronics, Pacific Television and the present tenant, Olympic Community Action Programs.
Setting It Straight CLARIFICATION FROM LAST month’s column about Art Anderson’s Flying A Service Station in Forks: Mary and Jim Springer bought Hungry Harry’s Restaurant from Harry Leffler in the 1990s. They had the Raindrop Café for several years until the Golden Gate opened. Harry Leffler purchased Anderson’s original property from Warren Paul. Alice Alexander
Down the block By 1964, the block had gone through many changes. Olson bought Estes Red and White Grocery and relocated to a new grocery store farther east down Eighth Street. After their new grocery opened, Olson sold the old building to Daugaard’s Plumbing, which stayed until the late 1990s.
The building is presently empty. Over the years, Bailey’s old service station at 514 W. Eighth eventually became Watts’ Chevron, Hutch’s Chevron, Bob’s Beetle Service, D&S Transmissions and a car stereo business. Then it was vacant for a year or so, and is presently a beauty salon, Family Hair Care, operated by Sandy Howe. When Roland Bailey died of a stroke in 1953, his son, Doug, continued to operate the grocery until 1960, when his brother took over. The Baileys sold to Frank’s Shoe Repair in 1967-1968. Frank’s Shoe Repair was originally at 507 W. Eighth, across from the Moose Hall. Frank died in 1980, but the shoe repair continued to operate for several years. When it closed, there were several small businesses at that location, and an espresso stand, High Voltage, now occupies the site.
This building was a school when this photo was taken, and it’s still a prominent building today. What is it, where is it and what memories do you have of both its incarnations?

Few Medicare Advantage Plans left THIS IS WEEK No. 3 of describing the Medicare Machine. It is also March 31. Today, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., a few of us will be lurking about Life Care Center of Port Townsend (formerly Kah Tai) to talk about whatever you want to talk about and eat cookies. Tomorrow is April 1, which is April Fools’ Day. (Symbolism is where you find it.) OK, the Medicare Machine: I am not going to regurgitate the past two weeks’ columns because that would place all of us squarely into the Department of Redundancy Department, so if you’re just walking into the middle of this, good luck. Remember the part about how you could delay enrolling in Part B because you were still employed? Well, if you retire, become unemployed or, for whatever reason, lose your employment-related health insurance, you will have an 8-month “Special Enrollment Period” (SEP) to get into Part B, which starts the month after your other insurance ends, and the effective date of your Part B coverage will be the first day of the month following enrollment. If you have prescription drug coverage through employment (or whoever/wherever) and it goes away, you will have a 63-day SEP to get into a Part D plan without

PORT ANGELES — A special “Pizza, Pop and Power Tools” event is designed to show middle school-age girls that power tools and the construction industry are no longer just the domain of men. The event will be held at the Lincoln Center Technology Building, 905 W. Ninth St., from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday, April 16. Peninsula College is hosting the event for seventh- and eighth-grade girls in order to introduce the young women to the construction trades and show them how they, too, can train for this growing career field after high school. The first 20 who register for the event will spend the day learning about the construction trades, participating in games related to the day’s theme, making a project to take home and will receive a gift bag and meet women who have been successful in the construction field. A pizza and pop lunch will be provided. All registered participants must have parental permission to attend. The event will be monitored
by college staff and volunteers from community businesses and organizations. For more information on how to register, phone Anne Grasteit at 360-681-5127 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Spinal cord group PORT ANGELES — A support group is forming on the North Olympic Peninsula for those dealing with spinal cord injuries including caregivers, family and friends. The group was founded by Port Angeles resident Joseph Preti. “I find myself struggling with living life as a paraplegic and feel strongly that it would help me, as well as others, to start this support group,” Preti said. For more information, phone Preti at 360-452-9970.

stand that it will go best if you take your time, pay attention and think of it as your “job,” not just a quick little “something” that you’ll get done between batches of cookies . . . . . . because you won’t. I know what you’re thinking: “There has got to be a way to beat this game!” You’re right, there is: Use it as little as possible, which means use “health care” as little as possible, which means stay as healthy as possible. And you don’t need me to tell you how to do that; besides, I probably wouldn’t listen to you on that subject, either. Take the politics and the emotion out of all this and remember that, if you’re old enough to care about this stuff, then you’ve been smart enough for 60-plus years to survive in America, so you can do it. You just don’t want to. I don’t blame you; neither do I. So, I’m going to have a bumper sticker made: “Medicare happens.”

In as few words and as few weeks as possible, that’s what the Medicare Machine looks like, so reassure yourself about your attention span and reward yourself with a cookie (or some celery, depending upon your sociopolitical views) and breathe, but beware of lulling yourself into a false sense of security or knowledge, and here’s why: Once you enter The Machine, you’ll begin to encounter unanticipated (though, often, good) variations on themes, like the “Low Income Subsidy,” which can help pay for Part D-related stuff, or the “Medicare Savings Programs,” which help pay for Part B-related stuff, and on and on and . . . on. Medicare does not pay for long-term care long term. It will pay for up to 100 days in a “skilled nursing facility” (read, “nursing home”) if you need it and if you meet certain eligibility requirements. It doesn’t usually pay for things like hearing aids or dental care or foot care — note the use of the term “usually.” See? This isn’t easy stuff, but don’t panic: Most of us seem to be able to figure out most of this most of the time and usually with help — help is allowed — so, you can do this, but under-

fluid at this point? Mechanics have said if I change it now, I may experience transmission problems. Presently, the vehicle is shifting well, and I have no problems with the automatic, which has always maintained the proper fluid level. Chris Dear Chris: I would recommend changing the fluid. This is done on most Toyota vehicles with a simple drain plug in the transmission pan. When the plug is removed, about 3.4 quarts will drain out. I suggest you continue to do a fluid drain once a month for the next three months. This will slowly change the fluid over time without any concern. Make sure you use only factory Toyota transmission fluid.

NOTICE OF REQUEST TO CHANGE CONSERVATION RATES FOR PUGET SOUND ENERGY CUSTOMERS Puget Sound Energy on March 1, 2011 filed a request with the state Utilities and Transportation Commission to adjust electric and natural gas rates to recover the costs of investments made in energy efficiency programs that are made available to customers. The requested adjustment to the Natural Gas Conservation Program Charge, listed on PSE bills and originally proposed to become effective on April 1, 2011, would increase natural gas rates by an overall average of 0.5 percent (one-half of 1 percent). The UTC has requested adjustments for both the Natural Gas Conservation Program Charge and the Electric Conservation Program Charge be reviewed concurrently so that both adjustments can be expected to go in effect May 1, 2011. The requested adjustment to the Electric Conservation Program Charge will decrease the cost for electric service an overall average of 0.088 percent (88 one-thousandths of 1 percent). An electric residential customer who uses an average of 1,000 kWh per month will see a reduction of 29 cents per month, bringing the total monthly Electric Conservation Program Charge to $4.34. The overall average change for electric customers is as follows:

PSE requested this change through the existing Electric Conservation Service Rider mechanism previously approved by the UTC and as a result of changes agreed to in Docket No. UE-100177. The mechanism allows PSE to periodically adjust its electric rates to reflect changes in investments in energy efficiency for customers made by the company. The UTC has the authority to set final rates that may vary from PSE’s request, either higher or lower or structured differently depending on the results of its review.
