PT might lose second ferry Salish could be rerouted in budget cut By Leah Leach

Peninsula Daily News

A second ferry for the Port TownsendCoupeville route is now in doubt. One of the options for trimming nearly $17 million from its 2011 budget presented by the state ferries system would deliver the Salish, a 64-car ferry now under construction, to the San Juan route next spring rather than to the route between Port Townsend and Whidbey Island. “We’d be disappointed if this was the case,” said Port Townsend Mayor Michelle Sandoval, who also is a member of the Ferry Community Partnership group for the route. “We were anxiously awaiting finally getting back to our former level of service.” No decision will be made for several months. The Office of Financial Management will consider the options, some of which may be incorporated into Gov. Chris Gregoire’s budget proposal, which will be issued in December. The governor’s proposed budget will be debated by the state Legislature after it convenes Jan. 10 for a session extending until April. But Sandoval said that lobbying efforts will be organized soon to fight the possibility of losing the Salish, adding that a meet-

Distress Express shows opportunity Investment deal seekers take four of foreclosed properties By Tom Callis

Port Angeles resident Doug Timmons, left, talks with Eric Hegge, a broker with Coldwell Banker Town & Country Real Estate in Sequim, during a tour of foreclosed homes in Port Angeles on Saturday.

PORT ANGELES — When he moved to Port Angeles in the early 2000s, Doug Timmons found it was a good time to buy real estate. Prices had deflated in response to hits to the fishing and timer industries, and recovery seemed right around the corner with the addition of Westport Shipyards and the start of the state Department of Transportation’s graving yard. After acquiring 27 apartments and three houses, the 66-year-old retired aerospace machinist is seeing a similar opportunity. But this time with foreclosed homes. On Saturday, he joined a dozen other deal seekers on the Distress Express, a tour of eight foreclosed homes in Port Angeles hosted by Coldwell Banker Town & Country Real Estate of Sequim.

“It’s a good time to be investing,” Timmons said, while viewing a three-bedroom, one-story house on A Street. An opportunity for investment, whether to rent or fix up and resell a home once the housing market improves, appeared to be what attracts people to the tour, said Eric Hegge, a Coldwell Banker broker.

Good time to invest “They’re more savvy” than most buyers, he said. In a bus rented from Olympic Bus Lines, Hegge and Dan Erickson, owner of the real estate office, hosted the tour, named for the “distressed properties” it visited. The tour is brand-new, Hegge said; the first one was held last month in Sequim. None are planned for Jefferson County. Turn



Jefferson County voters have shot at No. 1 It’s close second with about 350 ballots to count By Charlie Bermant Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — During a campaign visit last week, Sen. Maria Cantwell, a Democrat from Mountlake Terrace, challenged



fellow Democrats in Jefferson County to bring in the highest voter turnout in the state. The county may just achieve that goal. As of Friday, it is in second place, with 17,286 ballots of 21,749 mailed, or 79.48 percent, tallied. Jefferson County is second only to the much smaller Columbia county in the southeastern part of the state, which has 2,080 of 2,580 votes, or 80.62 percent, tallied. Auditor Donna Eldridge still

thinks Jefferson County can be No. 1, and has projected an 81.21 percentage once the remaining votes — about 350 — are counted Wednesday. That number is imprecise since the final total will depend on how many votes are challenged or invalid. Eldridge, a Republican, said the high voter turnout can be attributed to the ability of “the Democratic machine” to get out the vote. “This is a Democratic county,

and the party has the ability to mobilize the voters to get behind the candidates they care about,” Eldridge said. None of the outcomes reported for three contested county races or the single local ballot measure changed after Friday’s count of 3,600 ballots, the first tabulation of outstanding ballots since the first tallies Tuesday night. County Commissioner District 3 incumbent John Austin, a Democrat, defeated Republican chal-

side such peers as Anne Bancroft, Shirley MacLaine and Jane Fonda, helped to usher in a new era for actresses in Hollywood by playing women who were confident and capable yet not completely flawless. Her dramatic turn as a divorcee exploring her sexuality after 16 years of marriage in “An Unmarried Woman” earned Ms. Clayburgh her first Oscar nod. “There was practically nothing for women to do on the screen in the 1950s and 1960s,” Ms. Clayburgh said in an interview with The Associated Press while promoting “An Unmarried Woman” in 1978. “Sure, Marilyn Monroe was great, but she had to play a one-sided character, a vulnerable sex object. It was a real fantasy.”

Briefly: Nation Police arrest 152 protesters in California OAKLAND, Calif. — Looking out her front window in an usually quiet residential neighborhood in this city, Deanna Goldstein’s knees began to shake. More than 100 protesters were hemmed in by police in riot gear. A trash can was blazing on the street. “I came home early from downtown to get away from the craziness, but the craziness came to me,” she said. In the past, the violent protests over a white transit officer’s slaying of an unarmed black man trashed downtown Oakland businesses. But after Johannes Mehserle on Friday received the minimum two-year sentence for slaying Oscar Grant, angry demonstrators marched into residential areas near Lake Merritt for the first time, putting innocent people in harm’s way. Police arrested 152 protesters, including seven juveniles, on suspicion of crimes including vandalism, unlawful assembly and disturbing the peace. Oakland police spokesman Jeff Thomason said 56 of those arrested were from outside the city. Investigators will be reviewing video and photographs of protesters damaging property to help prosecutors file charges, he said.

Obama calls India a creator of U.S. jobs President promotes $10 billion in trade deals during trip abroad By Ben Feller

MUMBAI, India — Searching for help half a world away, President Barack Obama on Saturday embraced India as the next jobscreating giant for hurting Americans, not a cheap-labor rival that outsources opportunity from the United States. Fresh off a political trouncing at home, Obama was determined to show tangible, economic results on his long Asia trip, and that was apparent from almost the moment he set foot on a steamy afternoon in the world’s largest democracy. By the end of the first of his three days in India, he was promoting $10 billion in trade deals — completed in time for his visit — that the White House says will create about 54,000 jobs at home. That’s a modest gain compared with the extent of the enduring jobless crisis in the United States. Economists say it would require on the level of 300,000 new jobs a month to put a real

Tea party helped but also hurt Republicans, some say By Philip Elliott

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Tea partybacked candidates helped and hindered Republicans, injecting enthusiasm into campaigns but losing Senate seats held by Democrats in Delaware, Colorado and Nevada that the GOP once had big hopes of capturing. Republican leaders and strategists are muttering that the same tea party activists who elevated Speaker-to-be John Boehner and the party to power in the House simultaneously hobbled the GOP’s outside shot of running the Senate. Tea partiers largely spurned establishment candidates in the GOP primaries and helped nominate Christine O’Donnell in Delaware, Sharron Angle in Nevada and Ken Buck in Colorado. All three lost Tuesday.

Quick Read

“You let the voters decide” the nominees, Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele said Friday. “It’s a risk. Voting is a risk.” Republicans won Senate races in Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, North Dakota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. That put them within three seats of a 50-50 split. In the case, Vice President Joe Biden would have broken the tie and allowed Democrats to retain their majority.

Lieberman a likely target If they could have managed a split, however, Republicans would have pushed hard to switch some lawmakers, with the likely target Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman. He’s an independent who votes with the Democrats but strongly supported Republican John

McCain’s 2008 presidential bid. Others considered Democratic Sen. Kent Conrad of North Dakota a possibility. All those what-ifs fell apart, though, in three states. In Delaware, tea party activists rallied behind O’Donnell over nine-term moderate Republican Rep. Mike Castle. Party leaders tried to crush O’Donnell; the state party chairman said she could not be elected dogcatcher, much less a senator. Voters went with O’Donnell and Republican officials in Washington largely abandoned the race. There were revelations about financial troubles and the emergence of TV footage in which she spoke out against masturbation and talked about dabbling in witchcraft as a teenager. On Friday, she blamed Washington Republicans for her loss to Democrat Chris Coons.

The first openly gay Episcopal bishop said Saturday that he will retire in 2013, due in part to the “constant strain” on him and his family from the worldwide backlash against his election seven years ago. Bishop V. Gene Robinson, whose consecration convulsed the global Anglican fellowship, said he was announcing his retirement early so the transition would be smooth for the Diocese of New Hampshire. He assured congregants that he is healthy and sober after seeking treatment for alcoholism five years ago. He will be 65 when he steps down. Robinson revealed his plans at the diocesan convention in Concord.

A Florida woman and her boyfriend have been charged with trying to sell her infant grandson for $30,000. Florida Department of Law Enforcement agents arrested 45-year-old Patty Bigbee and 42-year-old Lawrence Works on Friday in Daytona Beach, Fla., after they met with an agent posing as a buyer. Both were charged with illegal sale or surrender of a child, and Bigbee was also charged with communication fraud. FDLE agent Wayne Ivey said an investigation began last month after an informant told authorities the woman was trying to sell the baby. Authorities said the woman originally wanted $75,000.

Somali pirates have freed a hijacked South Korean-operated supertanker and its 24 crew members, officials said today in Seoul amid news reports that a record ransom was paid. The Samho Dream was sailing toward a safe third country under the escort of a South Korean destroyer after being released Saturday, the South Korean Foreign Ministry said in a statement. Its 24 crew — five South Koreans and 19 Filipinos — were all safe, ministry officials said. The tanker, loaded with about $160 million in crude oil, was hijacked by Somali pirates in the Indian Ocean in early April.

International airlines fearful of volcanic ash canceled flights Saturday into Indonesia’s capital, while the closure of airports nearest Mount Merapi has delayed the arrival of burn cream and ventilators for those whose skin and lungs were singed by searing gases. The series of eruptions, including the deadliest in decades, has killed 138 people. With nearby airports closed because of poor visibility, hospital officials said lots of supplies — including burn cream, oxygen masks and saline solution for IVs — were stuck in Jakarta. Nursing students were pumping emergency respirators by hand.

State mulls ways to speed ballot counts By Sean Collins Walsh The Seattle Times

For elections officials in many states, the 2010 races are just about history. But in Washington, ballot counting will continue for weeks. In most races around the state, vote margins have grown enough that candidates either have conceded or declared victory. But ballots are still coming in, and many officials expect to continue tabulating up to the Nov. 23 certification deadline.

The delay? So what’s taking so long? When all Washington’s counties except Pierce County moved to voting primarily by mail recently, officials expected ballot sorting to take longer, a necessary

evil to ensure accuracy. But now, Secretary of State Sam Reed and others are questioning whether there are ways to speed up the process without sacrificing election integrity. Oregon’s vote-by-mail system requires that ballots reach elections officials by Election Day to be counted. In Washington, the first Tuesday in November is the postmark deadline, meaning a large number of ballots arrive during the ensuing week. Reed said he supports a switch to the Oregon system, calling the postmark deadline “antiquated.” “We would get a more meaningful result on election night,” he said. “More significantly, virtually all of the ballots would be counted by Friday.” However the tabulating of ballots, once received, is difficult to speed up, elec-

State Supreme Court race remains tight The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — The state Supreme Court race remains too close to call after four days of ballotcounting. Justice Richard Sanders had collected 50.35 percent of the vote (813,959) as of Saturday in his bid for a fourth term, to 49.65 percent (802,570) for his challenger, Bainbridge Island attorney Charlie Wiggins. Hundreds of thousands

of ballots remain to be counted — many of them in populous King County, where Wiggins is winning. Sanders came under fire late in the campaign for insisting at a court meeting that racial bias plays no significant role in the criminal justice system. He said he has nothing to apologize for and is proud of his record in standing up for the state Constitution and protecting individual liberties.

State election turnout may top 70 percent The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — Washington elections officials said a late surge in ballots will likely push the turnout for Tuesday’s election to 70 percent or higher.

Secretary of State Sam Reed had predicted 66 percent of Washington’s voters would mail in, drop off and cast ballots. The record for a midterm election is 72 percent, set in 1970.

the ballots.” Before Election Day, officials can preprocess ballots by verifying signatures — but cannot begin to tabulate results. For larger counties, this means election-night results primarily represent votes that arrive before Tuesday. Then the waves of mailed ballots arriving Wednesday and Thursday create a bottleneck in vote processing.

The best way to get Election Night results that more accurately represent the final outcome is to persuade voters to cast their ballots earlier, said Kim van Ekstrom, spokeswoman for King County Elections. In 2004, ballot-counting discrepancies in King County caused bitter controversy over Gov. Chris Gregoire’s 129-vote victory

over Republican Dino Rossi, who ran and lost in this fall’s U.S. Senate race. After that election, many changes were made in Washington’s electoral system, and King County has been particularly careful to avoid errors, Reed said. King County now computer scans all incoming ballots to ensure every one gets counted, van Ekstrom said. The scanners allow the county to decrease human involvement in some steps, such as signature recognition. They set aside ballots if they find errors or have trouble deciphering them. Then they are processed by hand. Although the county’s large population slows its results, Reed said scanners are time savers and using them in more counties could speed up statewide results.

Rescued owl released into the wild Bird’s first flight draws squawking By Keith Thorpe

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Freedom is just another word for putting up with Steller’s jays. A juvenile barred owl that was found tangled in kite string and dangling from a power line in Port Angeles in October was returned to the wild Saturday east of Port Angeles on rural property belonging to the bird’s rescuer. The owl’s first flight was about 30 feet to a nearby tree. Within minutes, the bird had drawn the attention of several resident jays, who squawked their protest of the intrusion into their territory.

Kite-string predicament David Kanters, owner and founder of CliniCare of Port Angeles Inc. — which closed Oct. 29 — discovered the owl and its kite-string predicament hanging from utility lines behind the clinic on East Front Street on Oct. 22. Kanters, an advanced registered nurse practitioner, immediately took the bird under his wing, later transferring it to the Northwest Raptor & Wildlife Center in Sequim for a more detailed examination. There, the bird was given a clean bill of health and was readied for a return to

Each hop was accompanied by the increasinglyfrantic chatter of disturbed Steller’s jays. A crowd of about 30 people gathered to witness the event and followed the owl’s progress as it gained its bearings. Moore said it was possible the owl would take up residence in the immediate area if no other owls had previous claim to the territory. Kanters said he was happy to see the owl’s return to freedom. “He belongs out there,” Served as protector he said. “It was a good out“She was really taking come.” care of him,” Randazzo said. ________ Keith Thorpe (2)/Peninsula Daily News “She stuck by him the entire Photojournalist Keith Thorpe time, acting a lot like a sur- can be reached at 360-417-3524 Jaye Moore, left, executive director of the Northwest Raptor & Wildlife rogate mother.” or at keith.thorpe@peninsuladaily Center in Sequim, prepares to release the barred owl into the wild Saturday east of Port Angeles.

Food and a few straightened feathers were the prescription for rehabilitation. “We got him fat and sassy, and we got him ready to go,” she said.

River Road resurfacing to begin Monday By Jeff Chew

Peninsula Daily News

SEQUIM — A project to resurface West Sequim’s River Road entrance from U.S. Highway 101 to the roundabout at West Washington Street will be done at night Monday through Thursday this week. Work will be done from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. each night until completion, said Paul Haines, city engineer. “The reason we are doing

it at night is to minimize the impact,” Haines said, adding that the city notified businesses in the vicinity of the project on Friday. Access to all businesses will remain open, regardless of whether work is in progress, he said. The west entrance into Sequim’s commercial district will be open during the day but with some lane shifts possible, marked by barriers and detour signs.

During work at night, Haines said, flaggers will direct motorists through the construction site and into restaurants and other business driveways in the vicinity.

750 tons of asphalt Lakeside Industries of Port Angeles, the low bidder on the project, will resurface the River Road stretch with about 750 tons of asphalt.

The $150,755 project is funded with Sequim Transportation Benefit District dollars, Haines said. The project will resurface the roundabout and the West Washington Street approach to it, and flaggers will direct westbound traffic beginning at Priest Road, he said. The existing road surface will have to be ground down in places to the base gravel, where additional

wear and tear has taken place, Haines said. Most of project is an asphalt overlay, he said. River Road work now will delay more extensive future work that could take up to 10 times longer and be far more costly, he said. “Hopefully, they will finish it within a few days,” said Haines, but weather could cause work delays. “This time of year we are holding our breath that we

can get it done.” Lakeside is being given until Nov. 18 to complete the job, taking weather into account, he said. Clallam County is administering the contract on behalf of the city, Haines said, because the city does not have the road staff.

Republican Jaime Herrera’s victory Tuesday night in the open 3rd District in southwestern Washington was part of the Republican wave in the U.S. House.

Key victory Washington Democrats’ key victory last week was in the competitive U.S. Senate race with the re-election of Sen. Patty Murray over Republican Dino Rossi. Her victory preserves a small cushion for Democrats in the Senate. Republicans made inroads there Tuesday, handing Democrats a slimmed-down majority, and took control of the House.

Republican consultant Chris Vance points to gains in the Legislature, the Herrera win and the closeness of the Larsen race as proof that Washington state benefited from a nationwide trend in favor of Republicans. “Did a wave hit here, yes. Was it a massive tidal wave like hit the U.S. House, obviously not,” Vance said. “I think now we’re returning back to what we used to be, which is a very,

And voters sent a clear anti-tax statement, rolling back increased snack taxes, rejecting a $2 billion income tax on the rich and making it harder for the Legislature to raise taxes in the future. “They’re going to return Democratic majorities to the Legislature, but they clipped their wings with respect to the budget process,” Democratic strategist Christian Sinderman said.

state’s tax structure. “One of the lessons here, post-Obama’s election, is this is still the age of Reagan,” Murray said, noting that Republicans have been able to make the argument for smaller government and low taxes “on their terms.” “We have not been able to articulate a vision that voters understand,” he said.


OLYMPIA — Voters overwhelmingly rebuked taxes passed by Washington state’s large Democratic majorities in the Legislature. But while they may have been unhappy with the job Democrats did earlier this year, they appear to be letting them retain control of state government. Republicans made gains in both the state House and Senate in last week’s election, won an open U.S. House seat and were optimistic of their chances in a too-close-to-call race in another. While they are not expected to take the majority in the Legislature as they did in 1994, Republicans have cut into Democrats’ comfortable margins and ran competitive races in other districts.

belt and suspenders.” “Voters said, ’I’m taxed enough already,”’ Esser said. “Hopefully that will chasten many of the Democrats who do remain.” All 98 state House seats and 25 of 49 Senate seats were on the ballot this fall. Many positions were considered safe for either party, leaving intense battles over a relatively small slice to decide which side controls the Legislature. The GOP steadily lost ground during the last decade, finally giving up its one-seat control of the state Senate in 2004. Before Tuesday’s election, Democrats controlled the House with a 61-37 margin and the Senate with a 31-18 majority. As of this weekend, Republicans had moved their margin up to more than 40 seats in the House with a handful of races still too close to call. In the Senate, Republicans appeared to have gained at least four additional seats, with additional close races showing Democrats holding on to three seats needed for the GOP to take the majority.

“They’re going to return Democratic majorities to the Legislature, but they clipped their wings with respect to the budget process.”

Observances to thank, honor veterans Peninsula Daily News

North Olympic Peninsula residents will gather Thursday to honor and thank those who have served in the military. The largest Peninsula Veterans Day observance will be at Coast Guard Air Station/Sector Field Office Port Angeles on Ediz Hook. Veterans of Operation Desert Storm/Desert Shield will receive special recognition during this year’s program, held in the helicopter hangar at the base. Operation Desert Storm veteran Colleen McAleer, now a Sequim real estate agent, will present the keynote address. McAleer was an electronic warfare platoon commander of a unit deployed to the front lines of Operation Desert Storm in 1990, the first woman to serve in such a position in combat. Coast Guard Cmdr. Kevin Gavin will welcome the public to the ceremonies. Some 150 people will perform during the program, including the Port Angeles High School Band, directed by Doug Gailey, beginning at 10:30 a.m. Because of limited parking at the base, ride-sharing is encouraged. After the ceremonies, a barbecue is planned at the Clallam County Veterans Center at 216 S. Francis St., in Port Angeles. Hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad and baked

beans will be served, with VFW Post 1024 and the Ladies of Auxiliary 1024 cooking the food. Admission is free, but donations for the Veterans Center will be accepted. For more information, phone 360-452-1135. Observances also are planned throughout the Peninsula.

Remembrance set The Navy Seabee Veterans of America will hold the 44th Anniversary Honor Ceremony and Veterans Day Remembrance program at Gardiner Community Cemetery.

Fugitive in custody dispute from PA found The Associated Press

ARTIC, Grays Harbor County — A 49-year-old woman accused of disappearing with her twin daughters amid a custody fight — most recently from Port Angeles — was arrested after the three spent years as fugitives. Sharie R. Ramsey, 49, was charged with two counts of first-degree custodial interference for disap-

pearing with her daughters, now 14, in violation of a court order. Grays Harbor Undersheriff Rick Scott told The Daily World newspaper that she had twice taken the twins, most recently from Port Angeles in 2009. Court records say Ramsey originally took her daughters from their Midwest home and disappeared about 11 years ago. Their father spent 10

years searching for them, finally tracking them to Port Angeles last year when the mother sued for child support, the newspaper said.

Fled again A Clallam County Superior Court judge granted custody to the father, but court records say Ramsey allegedly fled again with the children in violation of a

parenting plan. Court documents show a deputy, acting on a tip, found Ramsey on Thursday at a house in the small town of Artic, south of Aberdeen. Ramsey contested the county’s court order but agreed to turn over the girls. “Sharie advised that this was an ongoing issue with Clallam County and that they were being tortured by them,” court

documents said. “Sharie continued that the girls would not be taken care of and how terrible kids were treated in foster care.” As the deputy waited for her to turn over the girls, they apparently escaped out an upstairs window. She told the deputy that the girls were no longer home. “Sharie said she did not see anything or know they

were leaving,” the court documents said. The girls were found the next day after trying to hitch a ride along U.S. Highway 101 south of Artic and were taken into protective custody. The family was living under different names and the girls were being homeschooled, Scott said. Ramsey was being held in the county jail on $100,000 bail.

Port Angeles Hardwood mill for sale Not at risk of closing, president says

Issues between owners

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles Hardwood mill is up for sale. Its owners, Washington Alder and Cascade Hardwood, began advertising the sale of the facility in west Port Angeles about a week ago and plan to have a transaction completed by the end of the year, said mill President Lindsay Crawford. “It’s going to happen pretty fast,” he said. The mill at 333 Eclipse Industrial Parkway, which opened in 2006 and employs about 90 people, makes furniture-grade lumber.

Won’t close It is not at risk of closing, Crawford said. If a new buyer doesn’t step forward, he said, it’s expected that one of the current owners will buy out the other. “Somebody is going to own it,” Crawford said, adding that he expects that employees will not be affected. He said the sale is prompted by disagreements between the two owners but declined to elaborate. The depressed timber market and overall poor

“It’s more about issues between the owners. Issues you run into in a partnership from time to time.” The asking price is confidential, Crawford said. The mill was considered one of the most efficient in the state four years ago and opened with much fanfare, with Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Mountlake Terrace, making an appearance. It cost more than $30 million to build, Crawford said. Asked if the owners regret the decision to build the mill on the verge of an economic recession, he said: “Anyone who invested anything between 2003 and 2006-2007 is probably questioning the investment they made.” He added, “They absolutely don’t regret building in the location. “The crew already has got a good reputation, even though they don’t have a long history,” Crawford said. The mill is capable of producing 35 million board feet of lumber per year with two shifts working five days a week. It is currently operating with two shifts, but only

The election’s power shift likely will signal marked changes in legislative priorities. Hastings, who cruised to victory for his ninth term, is ranking member of the Natural Resources Committee and thus in line to succeed Chairman Rep. Nick Rahall, D-W.V. The committee oversees energy, land use, environment and natural-resources issues. Hastings supports drilling for more oil, allowing firearms in national parks

Norm Dicks Election changed fortunes and protecting privateproperty rights. He opposes expanded authority for the Environmental Protection Agency. The League of Conservation Voters awarded Hastings a lifetime voting score of 2 percent. That means “whenever he was given a chance to protect the environment or open spaces, he at every possible opportunity sided

with corporate interests and oil companies,” said Tiernan Sittenfeld, the group’s legislative director. Meanwhile, Republican control of the House will derail Dicks’ hopes of chairing both the powerful Appropriations Committee and its Subcommittee on Defense. The Belfair Democrat, whose district includes Jefferson and Clallam counties, took the helm of the defense subcommittee earlier this year after the death of Rep. John Murtha of Pennsylvania. Three months later, Dicks found himself in line for the possible chairmanship of the entire Appropriations Committee when Rep. David Obey, D-Wis., announced he would not seek re-election. Tuesday’s elections dashed that scenario. Dicks instead will serve as the ranking Democrat, providing a crucial — but diminished — voice on

spending decisions. Dicks, who won re-election Tuesday, said he was disappointed but resigned. This will be the third time in his 17 terms in the House that the party in power has changed hands. Dicks said he does not foresee major changes under Rep. Bill Young, R-Fla., who would take chairmanship of the defense appropriations subcommittee. The two worked together to help trim $7 billion from the 2011 defense budget without major disagreements, Dicks said. Bigger shifts, Dicks said, might be afoot for the full appropriations committee. Two Republicans, Rep. Jerry Lewis of California and Rep. Hal Rogers of Kentucky are vying to succeed Obey. “The Republicans campaigned on making significant cuts to discretionary domestic spending,” Dicks said.

Ferry: Series of realignments mulled Tax activist Eyman challenges fare plan Peninsula Daily News news services

OLYMPIA — With the passage last week of Initiative 1053, Tim Eyman questions whether the state Transportation Commission can, as planned, raise ferry fares 2.5 percent next year. Eyman, who crafted the initiative, said raising state fees now should fall to the state Legislature under the initiative. While the commission is holding public hearings on the fare proposal, state decommissioned, but simply idled to save personnel and fuel costs. “Savings are achieved through providing service on certain routes using smaller vessels, with a smaller crew size, and lower fuel consumption,” the state ferries system proposal of options says. “This also allows the Super class ferry to be partially de-crewed, which results in additional savings.”

One of several options Moseley “made it clear it wasn’t a proposal, but one of a number of options,” Sandoval said after talking with the ferry systems director. “This wasn’t something they are suggesting strongly for us.” The state Transportation Department has been asked to cut $212 million.

sion has also asked the attorney general’s office for an opinion. One question, he said, is whether the prior designation by the Legislature to the commission to set ferry fares and tolls would be enough to override Eyman’s initiative. “Let’s go to court and let the judges decide,” he said. The commission plans to vote on the fare increase next month, after Eyman’s initiative takes effect. 20 weeks, which would mean no service to Sidney, British Columbia; reduced service on San Juan Island ferry routes; and no third vessel on weekends on the Fauntleroy-Vashon IslandSouthworth ferry route. ■  Elimination of extended hours added in fall 2009 at Point DefianceTahlequah. ■  Elimination of latenight service at MukilteoClinton. ■  Cutting a mid-day trip at Bremerton. In addition to service cuts, the ferry service has proposed eliminating seven administrative positions to save about $750,000, plus reducing overtime spending by $680,000, and cutting travel and non-mandatory training, the Seattle PI said, adding that the proposed cuts in ferry service would save about $10.5 million.

“Since 1999, we have seen massive increases in fares and the lack of boats being built,” Sandoval said. The Chetzemoka and the Salish, the first of a new Kwa-di Tabil Class of ferries, are the first boats the state has built in more than a decade. “I feel fortunate getting the Chetzemoka, given their situation,” Sandoval said. “We’re happy with our boat,” she added. “Our Chetzemoka will be more reliable in terms of seaworthiness. “That means consistency.

Base screening more for brain injuries Soldier, family shares story of his recovery By Adam Ashton The News Tribune

TACOMA — As many as one in four soldiers coming home to Joint Base LewisMcChord from combat deployments report being exposed to explosions that trigger mild traumatic brain injuries. Often overlooked, these injuries, known by the shorthand TBI, can lead to depression, short-term memory problems and sleep loss. Lewis-McChord is stepping up its screening efforts to steer soldiers to treatment. Last Thursday, it hosted a summit to spread information to military families.

His struggle with injury A personal story was shared by Sgt. Shane Van Fossen, injured two years ago when a roadside bomb exploded under his Humvee in Iraq. He was deployed with the 3rd Infantry Division out of Fort Benning, Ga. His wife, Spc. Justine Van Fossen, was deployed to the same base east of Baghdad.

Question: What happened after the bomb exploded? Shane: I blacked out twice. They wanted to call a medevac. I said no, I wanted to stay with my guys. We continued with the mission, and I just noticed from time to time I was having trouble with things. It was getting hard to remember things. It doesn’t seem like a big deal, but for me, I’m a payattention-to-detail guy. I had trouble sleeping. It was all the classic symptoms, and I didn’t know it. I had never been hurt like that before. I thought I was just being a jerk. Question: What happened when you came home to Georgia? Shane: It was all new. New roads. New apartment. I had trouble even remembering where our house was.

Question: What did you do to heal? Shane: It was a lot of memory tests. Reading, not just reading but reading to retain. Playing on the Wii to work on hand-eye coordination. Your brain’s like any other muscle, and you have to exercise it. Question: Justine, how were you involved in his recovery? Shane: I didn’t involve her. She took charge of me.

Briefly: State Man charged for threat to Sen. Murray SPOKANE — A man who is accused of waving a meat cleaver out his car window and threatening to kill Sen. Patty Murray when she was in Spokane last month was charged with threatening a

federal officer. KREM-TV and KHQ-TV reported 50-year-old John Sieler is scheduled to appear in federal court Monday for a bail hearing. Police said Sieler twice drove by a rally outside the TV studio where Murray, D-Bothell, was holding a campaign debate and yelled profanities and threats at her supporters. Police arrested him on his third pass and seized

the meat cleaver and several knives.

Salal picker’s death SHELTON — A hunter accused of killing a man picking floral greens in the woods near Shelton has been charged with manslaughter. The charge filed Friday in Mason County Superior Court said 39-year-old Gerald Wayne Aldrich caused the Sept. 29 death through

criminal negligence. He faces about five years in prison if convicted. Aldrich said he thought he was shooting at a bear and had missed. His bullet killed Carlos Pablo Carrillo, sheriff’s deputies said. Carrillo, 24, of Shelton was gathering salal, which is used by florists.

Barbell beating TACOMA — A man

accused of beating his landlady with a barbell and running over her with a van has been charged with murder in Tacoma. The News Tribune reported a not guilty plea was entered Thursday on behalf of 32-year-old Ivan Lee Pinto. He’s jailed on a $1 million bail. The Pierce County medical examiner’s office has identified the 60-year-old Tenino woman as

Janice Gallaher. Deputies arrested Pinto on Wednesday near Roy after he reported the death. He told them the woman struck him first during an argument.

What I won’t do before I die I KNEW I’D catapulted across the line into adulthood the day my husband, Fletch, and I found ourselves at our Jen dining room table debating Lancaster the benefits of term vs. whole life insurance. There we were, not only having voluntarily invited the insurance agent, but sitting in a room where — by design — it’s impossible to eat dinner and watch “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” at the same time. The agent explained, “They used to call it ‘death insurance,’ but that bummed everyone out.” Yet that’s exactly what it is. As Fletch and I discussed payout amounts, we eyed each other warily, having mutually realized

we’re both more valuable dead than alive. I told the agent, “I want Fletch taken care of if I kick it first, but I don’t want my legacy to include a boat that sleeps 12.” Fletch’s stipulation was that I could pay off the mortgage, but not have enough extra to hire a cabana boy. (At least not fulltime.) There’s nothing like putting a price on your own mortality to make you reflect on life. I’m only in my 40s now, so it’s not like I’m just waiting for the clock to run out. However, the window for, say, auditioning to be a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader has firmly closed. (I’m not a huge fan of pairing boots and hot pants together, so I’m totally fine with this.) But after our meeting where the core message was YOU ARE GOING TO DIE, I began to wonder if I’m living life to the fullest. Sure, I’m happy, but I was a lot happier before I realized I’ve

Speaking Out

essentially put a bounty on my own head. Am I accomplishing everything I want? Maybe? My books have hit the bestseller lists, and I’ve sipped wine with Hoda and Kathie Lee on the “Today” show. (Try and guess which one I’m more proud of.) But in terms of goals, I can’t come up with any except for maybe getting in a Twitter fight with a Kardashian, and that’s super pathetic. So I wonder: Do I need to create a bucket list? As I research other people’s bucket lists, I see that “Go on an African Safari” is pretty popular. Sounds cool, right? It’d be fascinating to experience the cradle of civilization from atop an elephant. And as soon as Africa rids itself of all their venomous spiders, black mambas and puff adders, and automatic-weapontoting warlords, I’m buying

my ticket. Till then, I’ll make do with the Discovery Channel and Lincoln Park Zoo. Some bucket lists reflect a desire to be more active. I see entries about swimming the English Channel (too cold), running a marathon (too hard) or climbing Mount Everest (too much possibility for an avalanche and that I’d be the one all the trapped climbers want to eat). While I congratulate others for having such physically lofty goals, I’m someone who perfected the art of picking up items with my feet to avoid bending. I can’t imagine I’d want to add such grueling tasks to my bucket list. Adventure factors high in a lot of bucket lists. Seems like everyone wants to skydive or run with the bulls in Pamplona or swim with sharks. Let’s break this down, shall we? Folks either want to

voluntarily jump out of airplanes, put themselves in front of thousands of pounds of angry, charging bulls with nothing to protect them but a bandana and a pair of Air Nikes or splash around with a bunch of creatures who have “man-eating” as part of their name? Thanks, but no thanks. As I can’t put “not die” on my bucket list, perhaps I should just invite the insurance agent over again . . . because that hour we spent discussing actuarial tables truly felt like an entire lifetime. ________ Jen Lancaster is a humorist and the author of three books — Such a Pretty Fat, Pretty in Plaid and Bitter is the New Black.

“The people have spoken. Politicians now need to focus on bringing God back into the picture to help us through these hard times as our Founding Fathers would have wished.”

“Unfortunately, now we’re heading in the wrong direction. The fiscal stimulus never got the thrust is should have, and the push for austerity is not what would create jobs.”

“I’m happy the Democrats retained their Jefferson County seats, but I am disappointed the tax on the superrich failed. The national level showed a lot of political ignorance.”

“All politics is crap. The two parties can’t seem to get along. It makes for a big mess. They don’t care about us, just who can bark the loudest. The commercials were ridiculous.”

“I’m disappointed that the Democrats lost so many seats. And that the liquor initiative didn’t pass. I don’t think Obama had much of a chance to prove himself. What now?”

“I just hope everything goes well for the new elected people. I was for Rossi. I was worried about the tax on candy and pop. It’s coming off now. Most of my candidates won.”

“Some of the initiatives didn’t come out the way I wanted. The tax and liquor ones didn’t pass. I didn’t like Rossi for sending jobs overseas. I just wish more of my age had voted.”

“I’m extremely disappointed in the electorate. They followed party lines and didn’t think for themselves when it came to taxes and the economy. It’s going to get interesting now.”

Bus stop issues Because of recent letters in the Peninsula Daily News, I drove to Walmart to see firsthand the location of the Clallam Transit System’s bus stops at the new store. To reach Walmart, bus riders traveling east from Port Angeles must cross U.S. Highway 101. Then they must cross East Kolonel’s Way, which means crossing two lanes of oncoming traffic turning left, and one lane turning right, from Highway 101. This will take them to an island in center of Kolonel’s. Then they must cross one more lane that is a right turn only that funnels vehicles from Walmart onto Highway 101 toward Port Angeles. They have then reached the sidewalk. This is an extremely busy intersection, even at 9 a.m. Accomplishing this safely will be a challenge. The one positive feature for transit riders is the sidewalk on the west side of the driveway paralleling the road to the parking lot. But will people use it or take a shortcut across Turn

Power of one Vice President Joe Biden, speaking at a fundraising event in late October said: “Every single great idea that has marked the 21st century, the 20th century, and the 19th century has required government vision and government incentive . . .” This reflects a world view that seems to be ascendent in government and even in religion. Individuality is scorned, and we are encouraged to depend on the collective. A contrary view has been applied by individuals who have actually had great ideas and invented things. Consider Edison, Westinghouse and the Wright brothers. Mr. Edison, an early school dropout, is recognized as the most prolific American inventor. Mr. Westinghouse, after dropping out of Union

College, provided a quantum improvement in the safety of railroad travel with his invention of the air braking system. Later he became Mr. Edison’s rival in developing electrical power generation and distribution systems. When the Wright brothers, neither having finished high school, decided to take on the monumental challenge of building an aircraft, they had to apply the technologies of airfoils, structures and engines. Less than two decades after the invention of the gasoline engine, they chose that device and then designed and built their own engine when they could not buy one to their specifications. They applied the theory of airfoils and invented the airplane propeller. They chose a configuration for their flyer, developed a method to control its flight, designed and fabricated the aircraft, tested their concepts first with kites and then with gliders and learned to fly their machine without killing themselves. To deride the value of individual enterprise and achievement is deceitful and destructive. We need cooperation, but we are enriched by individual achievement and a competitive marketplace.

Tea party failures It was evident for months that a considerable change was coming to Congress. Nearly everyone correctly supposed the Republicans would take control of the House in the mid-term elections. And with a bit of luck, they could have snagged the Senate, too. Unfortunately for them, they had hopes for a bigger success than they received from several of the tea party candidates. More than a couple of the newcomers were rank amateurs and had never previously run for office. And their inexperience was more than obvious by their occasional questionable remarks and campaign advertisements. Evidently before the primaries, the Republicans had wrongly considered their party members were cinches to win. So they didn’t think it was necessary to support them like they should have. It can be assumed that an unexpected consequence of this political negligence was that the tea partiers beat out some of their more able candidates with their own contenders. Sadly for them, though, the average voter didn’t accept some of their Senate nominees’ backgrounds, and they went down to defeat. As those seats were for

six years, not two like the House’s, presumably, most of those who voted were not willing to take a chance for that long on amateurish unknowns. Otherwise, it’s reasonable to assume the Republicans would have swept the Senate, too. Bill Ray, Sequim

Our ‘blue’ state The people have spoken with a forked tongue in this state. Unfortunately, we live in a state with a hue of the deepest blue. Democrats are entrenched, and it will most likely take an eruption of Mount Rainier to dislodge them. Can’t we somehow move King County to San Francisco? However, as I write this, the issue of control of the state Legislature is in doubt, and hope springs eternal. Nationally, the election is a complete repudiation of the Obama agenda. That is an inarguable fact. However, at its peril, the White House has refused to accept it. I am thankful that the United States Congress will now be in a position to save us from having even more left-wing idiocy shoved down our throats. Ethan Harris, Sequim

PT duo finish in top 5 PA runner takes 13th at state meet Peninsula Daily News

The Associated Press

Washington defensive tackles Semisi Tokolahi (98) and De’Shon Matthews (96) look up at the score during the final minutes of their game against Oregon on Saturday in Eugene, Ore.

Ducks leave Dawgs behind By Anne M. Peterson The Associated Press

EUGENE, Ore. — Running back LaMichael James felt it, and so did the rest of the top-ranked Ducks. There was something inexplicably amiss at the start of Oregon’s 53-16 victory over northwest rival Washington on Saturday. Something completely out of character for the nation’s most prolific offense. “I don’t know, Also . . . it was something. ■ Bears We weren’t really escape playing up to Cougars, standards the win by 7 first two quarpoints/B4 ters,” said James. “Our tempo wasn’t good, I was having some mishaps and other players were having some mishaps. Sometimes you’re going to have those games.” The Ducks (9-0, 6-0 Pac-10) were held scoreless in the first quarter for the first time this season. Their first points came on a 29-yard field goal early in the second quarter. Of course they went on to thoroughly recover, outscoring Washington 35-10 in the second half. James ran for 121 yards and three touchdowns, while Darron Thomas threw for a score and ran for two more. Oregon, as usual, wore the Huskies out. “We were exhausted,” coach Steve Sarkisian said. “We didn’t help [our guys] offensively. We didn’t sustain drives on offense to give our defense a rest. “The game got in their control where they like it, so they can go fast and wear you out.” Thomas completed 24-of-33 passes for 243 yards. He ran for 89 yards. Oregon offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich described the start as “weird.” “I don’t know what to attribute that to,” he said. Redshirt freshman Keith Price made his first career start for Washington (3-6, 2-4) in place of Jake Locker, who watched from the sidelines with a broken rib. Price held his own, completing 14 of 28 passes for 127 yards and a touchdown. He had only completed five of nine attempts going into the game. He threw a touchdown pass on his only play from scrimmage in a 32-31 victory on the road against USC on Oct. 2. “I think I played OK,” Price said. “There were a lot of balls I normally make that I didn’t make. “That was me being too anxious and excited. I needed to settle down a little bit.” There were questions about how Price would handle the noisy Autzen Stadium crowd, which on Saturday was announced at 60,017 — the largest in the stadium’s history. The yellow-clad throng was not treated to Oregon’s usual offensive intensity at the start. After Oregon opened the scoring with Rob Beard’s field goal, Erik Folk’s 52-yard attempt for Washington went wide left. But Folk made another 52-yarder later in the quarter to tie the game at 3. James finally got a touchdown for the Ducks midway through the second quarter with a 1-yard run. Beard ran in the 2-point conversion.

PASCO — Port Townsend placed two runners in the top five while Alison Maxwell of Port Angeles captured 13th at the state cross country championships Saturday at Sun Willows Golf Course. Defending Class 1A boys individual champion Bereket Piatt of Port Townsend claimed fifth place while teamm a t e Maxwell Habtamu Rubio took third place, unable to repeat on their 1-2 state finish last year as juniors. Tyler King of Coupeville, who beat the duo at the tri-district championships the week before, took first in a time of 15 minutes, 16.9 seconds in the 5-kilometer race, burying the opposition. King was fifth in state last year in the 4A competition, running for Oak Harbor. Elma’s Todd Jackson was way back in second at 15:47.5 while Rubio was close behind for third in 15:50.4. Jackson also is new to the 1A level. Elma competed at 2A last year when Jackson was favored to win the 2A meet before he was injured. King’s Hap Emmons beat out Piatt for fourth with a time of 15:53.2 while Piatt took fifth in 16:03.9.

Port Townsend’s Habtamu Rubio captures third place at the state 1A cross country championships at Sun Willows Golf Course in Pasco on Saturday. He led the Redskin boys to an eighth-place team finish. Port Townsend’s Xavier Frank and Chimacum’s Griffin Hoins both finished in the top 50 in the 1A boys race. Frank took 44th in 17:29.0 while Hoins was right on Frank’s heels in 46th in 17:29.8. There were 144 runners in the 1A level.

The Port Townsend boys captured eighth place in team honors, the best finish for the North Olympic Peninsula. Maxwell, meanwhile, claimed 13th place with the time of 19:20 in the Class 2A girls race while Sequim’s Audrey Lichten finished in 21st, recording a 19:32

run. The Port Angeles girls finished in 14th place overall as a team. A total of 15 runners made it to the 1A and 2A state cross country meet representing Port Angeles, Sequim, Port Townsend and Chimacum.

Wolves rip Patriots 42-22 By Matt Schubert

Peninsula Daily News

POULSBO — Sequim all but wrapped up its fifth straight trip to state. Then it got bored. The Wolves scored 42 unanswered points to begin their rain-drenched Class 2A preliminary playoff against Washington and cruised from there for a 42-22 win Saturday night. The win clinched the Wolves’ fifth Class 2A state playoff berth in five years and moved head coach Erik Wiker to 3-2 in preliminary playoff games. “It feels really good,” said Wiker, who is 1-4 in state playoff games entering next week’s contest. “A lot of people didn’t expect us to take the league or go back to state and do those things, so it’s really nice to reach those

goals. “And [now let’s] just get going back to practice and kick some butt.” Sequim (9-1 overall) will face Northwest District No. 4 Burlington-Edison (7-3) in Poulsbo next Saturday night in the first round of the Class 2A tournament.

Familiar opponent It’s the same team the Wolves faced and beat in last year’s first round, a 34-32 heart-stopping classic. “You can’t take them lightly,” Sequim running back Isaac Yamamoto said. “We know what they are capable of. They came back last year [before losing on the final play]. We’ve got to play them tough and we’ve got to work hard and execute this week.”

Yamamoto did a lot of that on Saturday. The senior captain ran for a game-high 173 yards and three touchdowns on 17 carries, while junior Frank Catelli added two touchdowns of his own to help Sequim race out to a 42-0 second quarter lead. “Everybody blocked well tonight,” Yamamoto said. “I can’t ask for anything better. I had great holes, great second-level blocking. “For me its just find the seam and hit it and just run hard.” Catelli scored his first touchdown on a 3-yard run on Sequim’s second possession of the game. He the added a spectacular defensive touchdown on the next play from scrimmage to help put the Wolves up 15-0 early on. Turn



BELLINGHAM — The Chimacum Cowboys ran out of tomorrows. After surviving four straight do-or-die games to get into the Class 1A preliminary playoffs, turnovers and missed opportunities cost the Cowboys in Friday night’s matchup with Northwest Conference power Nooksack Valley. The Pioneers took advantage of five Chimacum turnovers to end the Cowboys’ season with a 21-7 victory at a drizzly Civic Stadium in Bellingham. “If we played our ‘A’ game, that score would’ve been a lot different,” Chimacum coach Shawn Meacham said. “But I’m proud of every single one of my players. “They gave me all that they can give me. That’s all a coach can ask. This team is a heck of a team, no matter what that score says.” Friday’s loss ended a fourgame winning streak for Chimacum, which overcame a 1-4 start to the season to make its first postseason trip in five years. “I love every single one of the players out here,” said a tearful Devin Manix, one of 15 seniors to suit up Friday night. “I always dreamed to take the way we played when we were little into high school, and we did it. “We left it all on the field, and it’s just a hard way to end.” Two years removed from back-to-back 1-9 seasons, the Cowboys came up just one win shy of the school’s fifth state appearance and first since 2005. “I don’t know if I’ll have a connection with a group of kids like I’ve had with these kids,” Meacham said of the seniors, who he also coached at the middle school level. “I’m going to really miss them.” Meacham said Chimacum (5-5 overall) would have to avoid turnovers to beat the Pioneers (7-3).

Neah Bay, Quilcene win B football games Peninsula Daily News

NEAH BAY — The Neah Bay Red Devils (6-1, 7-2) finished their football season strong with a 68-20 win against Clallam Bay (1-6, 1-8) on Friday night. “It was a hard-hitting, hard-fought football game,” Clallam Bay coach Cal Ritter said. The Red Devil defense was able to hold the Bruins to only three touchdowns in the game and allowed their offense to pull away for the victory. Josiah Greene had a total of 254 offensive yards and five touchdowns for the Red Devils while Titus Pascua rushed for 139 yards on five carries.

Quilcene 60, Crescent 14 QUILCENE — The Rangers had no problems against the Loggers on Saturday as they move on to the playoffs. “It was a learning year, and we just don’t have the experience yet,” Crescent coach Tim Rooney said. “We will be ready to go for next year.” Brandon Bancroft had a big game for Quilcene with 170 offensive yards and three touchdowns. On the defensive side of the ball, Bancroft had three interceptions, taking one back 100 yards for another score. Joey Barnes ran for 71 yards on 21 carries, caught

three passes for 100 yards and scored both of Crescent’s touchdowns. On defense, Barnes had eight tackles while Austin Hutto had six tackles and two sacks.

Riders: Port Angeles in state playoffs Continued from B1 “We’re just excited,” Port Angeles coach Tom Wahl said. “We’re looking forward to it and we’re looking forward to another week of practice.” “I’m just so proud of the guys. They responded and they played well and they showed me some heart. “They showed me that they want to play for another week at least.” Port Angeles rebounded from a 41-0 loss to archrival Sequim a week ago with just the sort of physical, bend-but-don’t break effort that had it 8-0 to begin the season. Despite surrendering 247 rushing yards on 57 carries to Sumner, the Rider defense came up big when it mattered the most. That included six tackles for a loss when the scores was tied at 21 during the fourth quarter. Of course, one of those wasn’t really a tackle, since it came on an inadvertent kneel down by punter/quarterback Aaron Clark at the Sumner 22-yard line with 3:19 left. Port Angeles took advantage of the break, marching 17 yards in six plays for the game winning score on Walker’s 8-yard run on third-and-goal.


“It was a boot, but we knew we were going to run it,” said Walker, who also drew the Spartans offsides on a critical fourth-and-4 during the drive with a hard count. “There were some great blocks and I just ran right into the end one untouched. “Words can’t describe how I felt.” Walker finished the game with 194 yards of total of offense, throwing for 97 yards and three touchdowns on 8-of-18 passing and running for another 97 on 17 carries. Ian Ward added 36 yards and two touchdowns on three receptions and Cody Sullivan 47 total yards for the Riders, who had 257 yards to Sumner’s 308. For a team that was outgained by 322 just a week before by Sequim, the difference was a big improvement. “The first few days of practice this week were kind of sluggish,” Walker said. “Then Thursday and Friday and half of Wednesday we started to pick it up real good, and it showed on the field [Saturday].” Sumner had a pair of rushers go for more than 100 yards, with Cody Haavick (23 carries, 120 yards and one TD) and Tyler Salisbury (20-114) each

breaking the century mark. Yet when the Spartans needed those ground yards in the fourth quarter the Port Angeles defense stiffened, limiting Sumner to just four first downs on its last four drives. “It was tough to read [Sumner’ run game] at first,” defensive lineman David Woods said. “But once we actually got going, we just played tough defense and hit as hard as we can.” The Spartans’ groundand-pound intentions were clear from the start. Driving 89 yards on 17 plays, 15 of which were runs, Sumner marched methodically down the field on its first possession. Clark muscled his way into the end zone on a 1-yard quarterback sneak on fourth-and-goal. Port Angeles responded with scoring drives on three of its next four possessions in the second quarter, all capped by Walker touchdown passes. The junior signal caller first dumped off a screen pass to Sullivan, who followed a convoy of blockers 19 yards into the end zone to answer Sumner’s score. Walker intercepted Clark on the Spartans’ next drive, then found Ward in the back of the end zone eight plays later for an 8-yard scoring

pass. Clark hit Haavick for a 28-yard scoring pass on Sumner’s ensuing drive, but was intercepted a possession later by Rickie Porter. Walker converted that into a touchdown again, hooking up with Ward on back-to-back plays for 28 yards during a six-play 56-yard drive. The last was a 10-yard touchdown pass for a 21-14 halftime lead. “[Ward] was just running really good routes and our offensive line was giving me a lot of time,” said Walker, who completed 7 of 12 passes during the first half for 77 yards. “He flashed open and I just delivered the ball to him.” Sumner tied the game at 21 on its second possession of the third quarter, going 70 yards on 10 straight run plays capped by a Haavick 6-yard run. The team exchanged possessions five more times before the Rider defense overcame its own roughingthe-punter penalty to force another punt. That’s when Clark accidently kneeled on the turf to field a low long snap at the Sumner 22. Port Angeles took over on downs, and six plays later Walker scored his dramatic touchdown. Sumner’s desperation

drive ended on an incomplete pass at the horn, sending the Port Angeles sideline into a frenzy. A week after the lowest of lows — a 41-point loss to their rivals — the Riders were riding high once again. “It was really hard for all of us [after the Sequim loss], not just the players the coaches too,” Wahl said. “We were all doubting ourselves some last week. It took us four days to finally snap out of it and finally get back on task as a team. “They came back, they showed that tonight they came to play. They didn’t let down, and I’m really proud of them.” Port Angeles 28, Sumner 21.

And true to form, it was Nooksack’s plus-two turnover edge (5 to 3) that was the difference amid Friday night’s steady drizzle. Nooksack outgained Chimacum by just 53 yards on the night (339-283), with all but eight Pioneer points coming after Cowboy giveaways in the first half. “I don’t think it was the stage. I don’t think it was the elements,” Meacham said. “Sometimes, those things happen. “And that’s a good team over there, too. We’re not going to take anything away from Nooksack. It just didn’t go our way today.” Quarterback Tyler Perry accounted for 260 yards of offense on the game, running both Pioneer touchdowns on 10- and 32-yard scampers. The senior showed few ill effects from a leg injury suffered a month ago, throwing for 160 yards on 17-of-24 passing with two interceptions and running for 100 yards on 15 carries. “We thought that what [Perry] did was going to be the strength tonight,” Nooksack head coach Robb Myhre said. “And it ended up being [that way].” Both of Perry’s scoring runs came on designed quarterback draws, with his 32-yard cutback run in the second quarter giving the Pioneers a 10-0 lead. That play came just three snaps after a bobbled Cowboys punt snap gave Nooksack the ball inside Chimacum’s 35-yard line. After the Cowboys gave the ball away for the fourth time in the first half — on a fumbled kickoff return — Nooksack’s Erik Swanson tacked on his second field goal from 29 yards out for a 13-0 halftime lead. “It’s hard to have ourselves shoot ourselves in the foot like that when we could have come out a little bit better,” Manix said. “Maybe the outcome would have been different, maybe not, but it’s hard.” Manix played hurt as well on Friday, running for a team-high 86 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries despite separating his shoulder in last week’s win over Port Townsend. The senior’s 10-yard touchdown run on the Cowboys’ first possession of the second half put the score at 13-7. “It was painful the whole time, but it wasn’t worth missing a game, especially the last game,” said Manix, who got up slowly after a handful of carries during the game. “This was the last chance I was going to get to play, and my team needed me.” After Manix recovered a Nooksack Valley fumble on the Pioneers’ ensuing drive, Chimacum had all the momentum. Yet three plays later, quarterback Mason Moug was popped just as he crossed midfield and coughed up the ball into the hands of a Nooksack defender. “They were better than what I saw on film,” Myhre said of Chimacum. “Our first comment three plays into it was, ‘Boy, they are faster than what we thought.’” Moug finished the game with 184 yards through the air on 8-of-15 passing with one interception. He drove the Cowboys into Pioneer territory two more times in the fourth quarter, but each time the drive stalled. The Pioneers’ constant pressure — Nooksack dropped Moug for a loss eight times in the game, and five times in the second half — had a lot to do with that.

Sequim, PA advance to state Peninsula Daily News

TACOMA — The Port Angeles and Sequim volleyball teams both advanced to the Class 2A state championship. The Roughriders advance as the West Central District fourth seed while Sequim is the fifth seed. This is only the second time in school history that the Riders have played at state. The other time was 1989. The Riders went 2-2 at district, held at Franklin Pierce. “We played very well and played very aggressive,” Port Angeles coach Christine Halberg said. “But we are young playing at this level of competition.” The Riders won two matches on Friday, beating Evergreen 3-0, then Interlake 3-1. Emily Drake managed a total of 62 assists for both games while Danielle Rutherford had nine kills, five digs and two aces against Evergreen. Kiah Jones had 10 kills, 16 digs, three blocks and served 10-for-10 to help lead the team past Interlake in its second of back-to-back matches. The Riders lost to top ranked Fife 3-0 in their first match on Saturday, then gave it all they had against North Kitsap before falling 3-2 and landing them the fourth seed heading into the state tournament. The Riders will play Friday morning at state in Kennewick at the Toyota Center.

Sequim moves on

District said. “We have a few days of practice, so hopefully we can get some work done.” The Wolves defeated Sumner 3-0 but fell 3-1 to White River on Friday. Moving on to Saturday’s matches, Sequim beat Evergreen 3-0 and cut it close against Olympic, taking a 3-2 victory. The Wolves advance to the state tournament and will play in Kennewick on Friday as the fifth seed after winning a coin toss against sixth-seed Interlake.

The two teams played to a 0-0 deadlock through regulation and overtime before the Spartans won the penalty-kick shootout 3-1. “They are a top-ranked, two-way team who has been averaging five goals a game,” Port Angeles coach Scott Moseley said. “To hold them scoreless was our goal, but we didn’t get the penalty kicks like we wanted.” This had been the first district appearance for the Port Angeles girls soccer team in at least 10 years.

WSU quarterback Jeff Tuel played his worst game of the season. He completed just 9 of 25 passes for 92 yards, a product of a relentless Bears pass rush that battered Tuel for six sacks. “We put a lot of pressure on the passer at times,” Tedford said. “Unfortunately, he got out of it a lot of times. That guy is a very good player. I said it throughout the week. He cannot only beat you with his arm, but he can beat you with this legs and he is a great competitor.” Cal held WSU to just 60 yards of total offense in the second half and 194 for the game. “I can’t really pinpoint one thing,” Tuel said of the Cougars’ poor passing. “Just execution and things here and there.” WSU coach Paul Wulff

PULLMAN — It turns out California didn’t need the help of quarterback Kevin Riley to snap a sixgame road losing streak. Handing the ball to tailback Shane Vereen proved effective enough. So did the Bears’ defense. Vereen ran for 112 yards and two touchdowns, and California snapped a streak that dated to last season by taking a 20-13 win over Washington State on Saturday. “It’s going to be a nice plane ride home,” Cal coach Jeff Tedford said. “It’s been a thing, obviously, that a lot of people have been talking about, and this is our last road game so it was nice to get a victory today.” Last week’s 35-7 setback against Oregon State proved the most costly loss yet, as Riley went down with a season-ending knee injury. Junior Brock Mansion started in his place against the Cougars (1-9, 0-7), completing 12-of-24 passes for 174 yards while throwing two interceptions against a defense that ranked at or near the bottom of the conference in nearly every defensive statistic. “I think there is a lot of

WE’RE BACK ON the roller coaster ride called the Seattle Seachickens. And yes, we’re Brad back to LaBrie calling them the Seachickens. At least I am. I guess Seattle has to have two weeks to prepare to have a decent game on the road. Their lone good road game was 23-20 against the Chicago Bears the week after the Seahawks’ bye week. The other road games were all disasters against beatable teams: 31-14 at Denver, 20-3 at St. Louis and now 33-3 at Oakland last Sunday. How hard is it to be competitive against these three teams? I don’t want to hear about injuries. Every NFL team has injury problems. The Colts were missing offensive starters Austin Collie, Dallas Clark and Joseph Addai but still steamrolled Houston last Sunday. “Whoever’s in there has to find a way to do the job,” team leader Peyton Manning said after the game. “It’s not always going to be pretty, but we’ve just got to keep grinding and making some plays.” There you have it. A team has to have bench players who can make some plays. The Seachickens need to find those players if they don’t have them. And now that the streaking New York Giants are coming to Seattle today, the Seachickens will be missing Matt Hasselbeck, who was erased from the lineup Thursday because of a concussion. Don’t go out and put your money on the Seachickens this week. On the other hand, sometimes a team can get a spark or boost from the backup quarterback, in this case Charlie Whitehurst. “The circumstances are good,” Whitehurst told The Associated Press. “We’re playing a good team. Playing at home. It’s all you can really ask for. “I plan on going out there and executing and helping this team win.” Well said, I must say. Whitehurst can talk the talk. We’ll find out today if he can walk the walk.

Quirky contests help raise $5,700 Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — The shenanigans at the Outrageous Olympics not only entertained team members and spectators alike but also raised $5,700 for United Way of Clallam County. The quirky competition — in which 12 teams competed in contests involving such diverse objects as brooms, balloons, Legos and paper airplanes while about 100 spectators watched — was Friday night at Port Angeles’ Vern Burton Community Center. Last year’s competition raised $3,350 for United Way. “This year was a huge success,” said Dan McKeen, United Way fundraising campaign chairman, who is also the chief of the Port Angeles Fire Department. “We had more teams than in the past, and the donations” — including “bribes” given to judges, coaches and anyone who would take them — “were larger this year, too,” he said. The barbecue dinner, donated by Patty and Larry Morris of Port Angeles — and purchased by donation — was a big hit, as well, McKeen said.

Taking first place was the Port Angeles City Slickers team, made up of city of Port Angeles employees. Code Blue, the volunteer

Competition winners

firefighters of the Port Angeles Fire Department and Clallam County Fire District No. 2 and the defending champions of the annual competition, took second place this year. Team Methner, composed of Steve and Sarah Methner and their children, and the Powerful Utility Divas, a team from the Clallam County Public Utility District, tied for third place, McKeen said. All received numerous prizes donated by a variety of vendors, McKeen said. The teams, which each paid an entry fee of $200, participated in six games, with such names as Geek Go, Fly Wright and Communication Chaos. Other teams were the Boy Scouts; Crew for the Caws, Green Crow employees; OMC Outbreak and Team Disaster, both Olympic Medical Center employees; Roughriders, Port Angeles High School students; Clallam County Family YMCA; Un-Tied Way, United Way; and Wild Wild Westport, Westport employees. The United Way divides undesignated donations among 27 nonprofit agencies and for its Community Impact Initiatives. It also distributes funds to nonpartner agencies and other charities as directed by donors. For more information about United Way, visit

Peninsula Daily News

Make the cut with heading, thinning FIRST, LET ME make it crystal clear that today we are talking only about conifers or softwood trees, evergreen trees with needles or scales only — not deciduous trees or evergreen broadleaves. You should not be pruning your rhododendrons or azaleas, camellias, hydrangeas, apples, pears, plums or shade trees. But remember, your conifers are ideal to prune now, and the clippings are most desirable, as we learned last week. Today, however, I want to reemphasize the importance of pruning your conifers correctly because to do so incorrectly is to forever change, alter and most likely destroy your evergreens. All pruning is because there are only two types of cuts in all the pruning you will ever do. Can you believe that? Only two types of cuts. They are heading cuts and thinning cuts. But how these two cuts differ and especially the disparate results they each achieve or force truly make all the difference in the world. A heading cut is a cut anywhere up or down a stem, branch, trunk, stalk, limb or cane that sev-

A growing concern ers that particular plant part May somewhere between the point of origin and the tip. By cutting, you “head off” the tip, the allimportant terminal tip of that plant piece. This heading cut must be made exactly distal to a node, which is a leaf or leaf scar or a place where a branch or stem radiates off. A node is where there is growth or where new growth will occur if headed off. That’s the secret of a heading cut — it either causes new growth (e.g., branches and stems grow in a place they would not) or causes the existing and remaining branches just below the cut to grow exceedingly well as they mature to now become the new terminal tips of that plant. In easier terms, heading cuts cause plants to become far bushier, prolific, fuller, fruit-laden


and dense. Growers perform massive numbers of heading cuts of evergreen trees to transform them from the spindly native-looking trees into those so thick you can barely hang ornaments on them.

Thinning cuts A thinning cut is a cut that removes a stem, branch, trunk, stalk, limb or cane at the exact spot it radiates from. You prune it off at the place of origin, thinning that piece of plant completely from that stem, branch, trunk, stalk, limb or cane. Removing or thinning branches from a plant not only allows light and ventilation into the center of the plant, which is most desirable and advantageous, but also increases the vigor and vitality of the remaining plant parts by diverting the excess root capacity to the remaining tips where flower, fruit and new leaf production is and can occur. Now that you know these two types of cuts, let’s see how they work with your softwoods. As a whole, you do not want to head off conifers unless you are expressly going to thicken up the

plant — say in the case of junipers planted for a hedge, or pines as a visual screen, or evergreen being grown specifically for Christmas trees. Heading off conifers forever changes their growth, especially if it is the main growing tip. And never prune and head off evergreen growth that is more than 3 years old. Conifers headed off back in old growth do not sprout anew and in fact slowly die, which is why a juniper plant sheered off (headed off) along the driveway looks just as brown and dead now as it did five years ago when you first pruned it.

Fresh growth Only tip off the fresh growth, if you must. Instead, if possible, lift the branches that stick out in the driveway and thin them at the point of origin. That way, they are not only gone completely out of the driveway, but will not grow back at that spot ever again. Remember as well that when branches are growing toward the house and rubbing on the siding, a thinning cut takes care of the prob-

lem without causing new growth to come back onto the house. So clip away your evergreens, but be very, very careful to choose the right pruning cut in order to accumulate the valued added clippings in order to create masterpiece arrangements that have a winter bonus of adding the benefits of mulch to the ground, plants and bulbs below.

Peninsula Daily News

Sign language while driving a danger DEAR ABBY: A woman driving the car ahead of me was swerving and weaving in and out of the next lane. She would slow down, then speed up, and I thought she might have been drunk. As I pulled up beside her, I realized she was using sign language to communicate with her passenger. She would turn her head toward the passenger, signing with both hands and ignoring her responsibilities of being a good driver. Is this legal? That woman was driving recklessly, and I don’t think she should have been driving if she couldn’t pay attention to the road. Safe Driver in Lexington, S.C.

dear abby Abigail


Van Buren Safe

Driver: According to the Beverly Hills, Calif., Police Department, the use of sign language is legal as long as it doesn’t interfere with safe driving. The state of California has a basic speed law that states: “No person shall drive a vehicle upon a state highway at a speed greater than is reasonable or prudent having due regard for weather, visibility, the traffic on, and the surface and width of, the highway, and in no event which endan-

gers the safety of persons or property.” In the case you have described, the person who was signing to her passenger was in violation of this law. I’m sure your state has similar regulations. Dear Abby: When my father-in-law, “Herb,” comes to visit, he rummages through our personal belongings whether they are in the garage, basement or storage closet. He feels compelled to “fix” anything he thinks needs fixing or rearranging. I am certain Herb thinks he’s being helpful, but we have addressed this issue with him many times, and we’re always met with defensiveness and lack of understanding.

He justifies his actions by listing all of the good deeds he does for us — some of which are legit. My husband and I are at a loss. We love Herb and want him to be a part of our lives and the lives of our children, but this makes us very uncomfortable. At times, we even feel violated in our own home. Where do we go from here? Herb’s Family in Wisconsin Dear Family: Your father-in-law may feel so comfortable at your place that he has it confused with his place. From here, you install a lock on every door in your home that you do not want Herb to enter without supervision.

And so he won’t be bored, plan ahead and consider setting aside some projects that do need fixing, so he won’t be sitting around with nothing to do that makes him feel useful. Dear Abby: I recently had a dinner party in my condo. One of my guests brought along his new roommate, whom I had never met. During the evening, the young man kept placing his foot on my coffee table and rubbing the sole of his shoe over the edge and corner. I didn’t say anything because I didn’t want to make him feel uncomfortable. After the party ended, I realized my coffee table had been damaged by what he did.

What is a polite way to tell someone to remove his or her foot from my table without causing a scene or embarrassing him? Mitch in Chicago Dear Mitch: Offer the person a footstool or something to place under the offending foot that would protect your table. Or, take an even more direct approach and say to the person in a calm manner, “Please don’t put your foot there because the finish on my coffee table is easily damaged.”

72% of black babies born to unwed moms Kids of unmarried mothers more likely to use drugs By Jesse Washington The Associated Press

HOUSTON — One recent day at Dr. Natalie Carroll’s OB-GYN practice, located inside a low-income apartment complex tucked between a gas station and a freeway, 12 pregnant black women come for consultations. Some bring their children or their mothers. Only one brings a husband. Things move slowly here. Women sit shoulder-toshoulder in the narrow waiting room, sometimes for more than an hour. Carroll does not rush her mothers in and out. She wants her babies born as healthy as possible, so Carroll spends time talking to the mothers about how they should care for themselves, what she expects them to do — and why they need to get married. Seventy-two percent of black babies are born to unmarried mothers today, according to government statistics. This number is inseparable from the work of Carroll, an obstetrician who has dedicated her 40-year career to helping black women. “The girls don’t think they have to get married. I tell them children deserve a mama and a daddy. “They really do,” Carroll said from behind the desk of her office, which has

left at the altar, and a Black Marriage Day, which aims “to make healthy marriages the norm rather than the exception.” In September, Princeton University and the liberal Brookings Institution released a collection of “Fragile Families” reports on unwed parents. And an online movement called “No Wedding No Womb” ignited a fierce debate that included strong opposition from many black women. “There are a lot of sides to this,” Carroll said. “Part of our community has lost its way.”

cushioned pink-and-green armchairs, bars on the windows and a wooden “LOVE” carving between two African figurines. Diamonds circle Carroll’s ring finger. As the issue of black unwed parenthood inches into public discourse, Carroll is among the few speaking boldly about it. And as a black woman who has brought thousands of babies into the world, who has sacrificed income to serve Houston’s poor, Carroll is among the few to whom black women will actually listen.

Legacy of segregation

Kids need both parents “A mama can’t give it all. And neither can a daddy, not by themselves,” Carroll said. “Part of the reason is because you can only give that which you have. A mother cannot give all that a man can give. “A truly involved father figure offers more fullness to a child’s life.” Statistics show just what that fullness means. Children of unmarried mothers of any race are more likely to perform poorly in school, go to prison, use drugs, be poor as adults and have their own children out of wedlock. The black community’s 72 percent rate eclipsed that of most other groups: 17 percent of Asians, 29 percent of whites, 53 percent of Hispanics and

The rate for the overall U.S. population was 41 percent.

Government report This issue entered the public consciousness in 1965, when a now-famous government report by future Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan described a “tangle of pathology” among blacks that fed a 24 percent black “illegitimacy” rate. The white rate then was

4 percent. Many accused Moynihan, who was white, of “blaming the victim,” of saying that black behavior, not racism, was the main cause of black problems. That dynamic persists. Most talk about the 72 percent has come from conservative circles; when influential blacks like Bill Cosby have spoken out about it, they have been all but shouted down by liberals saying that a lack of equal education and opportunity are the true root of the problem. Even in black churches, “nobody talks about it,” Carroll said.

“It’s like some big secret.” But there are signs of change, of discussion and debate within and outside the black community on how to address the growing problem.

Signs of change Research has increased into links between behavior and poverty, scholars say. Historically black Hampton University recently launched a National Center on African American Marriages and Parenting. There is a Marry Your Baby Daddy Day, founded by a black woman who was

There are simple arguments for why so many black women have children without marriage. The legacy of segregation, the logic goes, means blacks are more likely to attend inferior schools. This creates a high proportion of blacks unprepared to compete for jobs in today’s economy, where middle-class industrial work for unskilled laborers has largely disappeared. The drug epidemic sent disproportionate numbers of black men to prison and crushed the job opportunities for those who served their time. Women don’t want to marry men who can’t provide for their families, and welfare laws created a financial incentive for poor mothers to stay single. If you remove these inequalities, some say, the 72 percent will decrease.

Death and Memorial Notice Gary Flint Custodio July 16, 1977 October 19, 2010 Gary Flint Custodio was a modest man, quiet and observant in his ways. He was trustworthy and traditional in his approach to his life and in his relationships. He was toughminded with the kind of “stick to it” attitude that earned the respect of all who knew him. He was also a man who was meticulous, carefully disciplined, and orderly in virtually everything he undertook. Realistic about life, he was always at the ready, prepared to take on responsibility. Gary was born on July 16, 1977, in the Philip-

Custodio. Gary was usually involved in all sorts of activities with his siblings. He and his siblings experienced rivalries typical of a growing family, but they shared many life experiences over the years. A typical teenager, Gary had a fairly happy high school experience, making that critical transition from adolescence to adulthood. He graduated from Port Angeles High School in 1996. He enjoyed some classes more than others, having favorite subjects and teachers. Gary enjoyed his college years, which may have been a challenge with all of the academics, responsibilities, and the sudden freedom that accompanied them, but Gary was able to manage

While in Samoa, Pat studied the Samoan art of tapa, drawing on bark cloth of the paper mulberry tree, taught to her by tapa master, Mary Pritchett. Pat was also involved in the Ladies Intercultural Society of Samoa, serving as secretary/treasurer and later president. During their five years in Samoa they vacationed twice in New Zealand and Western Samoa, and visited most of the Hawaiian Islands. They returned to Ramona, California,

where Pat was involved in the Olde Ramona Art Gallery for several years. They moved to Port Angeles in 1993 because of the great natural beauty of the area. Pat has been active in TOPS, Port Angeles Senior Center Golden Agers, and Diva La Rouge Red Hatters.

Throughout her life, Marianne worked at Portland Evening School, Scarborough High School, and several businesses. She and Richard operated the Gray Elf Gift Shop in Hull’s Cove, Maine, for 14 summers. She was a faithful member of the traditional Anglican Church.

He enjoyed cross-country skiing in the Cascade mountains. He also loved to go salmon fishing, clam digging, and crabbing. His family members have many fond memories from all these activities. Sam also took an active interest in his community. He was past president of the homeowners association and he took great pride in working with other members on community projects such as the beach road project. The memorial service was held on Friday, November 5, 2010, at 2 p.m. at the Gardiner Community Center, 980 Old Gardiner Road, Sequim. We invite you to sign the online guest book at In honor of Sam’s memory, his family requests memorial contributions be made to the American Cancer Society.

Gary always sought to be a team player, doing what was necessary in order to get the job done. Though he never set out to gain individual recognition, Gary was given accolades for his many and varied accomplishments throughout his life. Gary’s main accomplishment was working for Homeland Security. Gary passed away on October 19, 2010, at a hospital in San Diego, California, of cardiac arrest. He is survived by his wife, Alisa; two sons, Markis, 12 years old, and Alexender, 7 years old; father and mother, Alexius and Salome Custodio; brother and sister, Mark and Khrystine; also by many other family members and friends.

Then they moved to Diamond Point near Sequim, where they built a home with an attached hangar — right across from the airstrip. Sam worked on building his own small plane, a BD-5; first in his garage in Renton, Washington, then continued in his hanger at Diamond Point. He then began building a Glasair. Building and flying planes were one of Sam’s favorite activities. Sam loved outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, and backpacking. He took his wife and family on many exciting trips: River-rafting down the Colorado River for a week, flying over to Eastern Washington for a family picnic, flying the family over to Protection Island

The Garth Foss approaches the Overseas Los Angeles stern first.

Garth Foss helps guard Strait of Juan de Fuca Escort, assist services are primary responsibilities Garth Foss, the green and white tug that is as common a sight in the Strait of Juan de Fuca as the pilot boats, oil tankers and cargo ships, is one of the most powerful tugs in the world. Known within the industry as an enhanced tractor tug, she was designed and built to be primarily responsible for providing escort and vessel assist services to oil tankers as they transit Puget Sound. She is 155 feet long and has a 46-foot beam. Power is derived from twin EMD diesel engines generating a combined 8,000 horsepower that drives a dual propulsion system known as a Voith Schneider propeller. Unlike the typical configuration where the props are at the rear of a vessel, on the Garth Foss, the propulsion system is located about 50 feet aft of the bow. Two sets of five vertically oriented hydrofoiltype blades arrayed on a circular plate hang beneath the boat and rotate around a vertical axis.

The captain of the vessel is able to control the velocity of the rotating plate as well as the angle of attack of the

paddles. This enables him to dictate the speed and direction of the vessel.

A trip on Garth Foss At 8 a.m. Oct. 22, Bruce Biddle, captain of the Garth Foss, eased the tug up against Terminal 4 at the Port of Port Angeles. After donning a life jacket and hard hat, I climbed aboard. I was met by the engineer, Jon Judd. Foss Maritime, which operates nearly 100 tugs and a like number of barges worldwide, takes safety very seriously. Judd immediately put

ment of the ship relative to the pier. What struck me during the docking process was the absolute trust and confidence the tug captains and pilots have in each other. Capt. Biddle seemed as at ease in manipulating the paddles on the Voith Schneider propulsion system in response to the myriad commands of the pilot as one would be in their easy chair, operating a TV remote control. I’m certain his unflappable demeanor belied a churning mind anticipating a plethora of contingencies.

Another day at the office Nonethelesss, once the ship was docked and Garth Foss was released to move onto her next job, it was just another day at the office for Capt. Biddle and his crew. In contrast to most tugs, the work platform aboard Garth Foss is on the stern of the vessel. That is where their towing gear and equipment is set up. So if a local waterwatcher happens to see either of these tugs steaming parallel to a tanker bow to bow, then the tugs are escorting the vessel. When you see the stern of either tug up against the side of a ship or traveling stern first, then the tug is tethered to the ship. A common example of this is when a laden tanker comes in to Port Angeles Harbor, and one of the Foss tractor tugs is providing a tethered-assist. The bow of the ship will be pointed towards the Nippon mill, and the bow of the tug will be pointed

toward Seattle.

PA Harbor watch We shall all awaken this morning to Santiago Basin, a 587-foot log ship that anchored overnight to the Port of Port Angeles’ T-Pier after her voyage from Inchon, South Korea. Longshoremen will begin loading the ship today with about 2.5 million board feet of logs that were debarked at the Pen Ply mill. Loading of the logs from dockside should be completed by Tuesday, at which time the seventh log ship to make port this year will get underway for Aberdeen. There her load will be topped off, and she will make her way to Zhangjiagang, China. Last Tuesday, Tesoro Petroleum provided bunkers to Overseas Los Angeles, a 675-foot petroleum products carrier now underway to Long Beach, Calif. They also refueled Empire State, a 630-foot tanker. On Wednesday, Tesoro bunkered Rea, a 620-foot bulk cargo ship that is due in Mariveles, Philippines, on Nov. 23. To end the week, Tesoro on Friday refueled a pair of crude oil tankers, the 944foot Alaskan Navigator and the 985-foot Polar Resolution.

Study: New CT scans can reduce lung-cancer deaths By Gardiner Harris The New York Times

WASHINGTON — Annual CT scans of current and former heavy smokers reduced their risk of death from lung cancer by 20 percent, a government-financed study found. The scans seem to also reduce the risks of premature death from other causes, suggesting the scans could be catching other illnesses. The findings represent

an advance in cancer detection that could potentially save thousands of lives annually, although at considerable expense. Lung cancer will claim about 157,000 lives in the United States this year, more than the deaths from colorectal, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers combined. Most patients discover their disease too late for treatment, and 85 percent die from it. To date, no screening

Four randomized controlled trials done during the 1970s showed that chest X-rays, while they helped catch cancers at an earlier stage, had no effect on overall death rates. Since then, researchers have suggested that CT scans — which use coordinated X-rays to provide three-dimensional views — could detect lung tumors at an even earlier stage than X-rays. “This is the first time that we have seen clear evidence of a significant reduction in lung-cancer mortality with a screening test in a randomized controlled trial,” said Dr. Christine Berg of the National Cancer Institute. Cancer doctors and others predicted the study’s results would soon lead to widespread use of CT scans, in particular for older smokers, who have a one in 10 chance of contracting lung cancer. “These people are worried about lung cancer, and now there is an opportunity to offer them something,”

said Dr. Mary Reid, an associate professor of oncology at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo. But health officials involved in the study refused to endorse widespread screening of current or former smokers, saying more analysis of the study’s results is needed to further identify who benefited most. Such an analysis is months away. And they pointed out that the study offers no reassurance about the safety of smoking or the advisability of CT scans for younger smokers or nonsmokers. “No one should come away from this thinking that it’s now safe to continue to smoke,” said Dr. Harold Varmus, director of the National Cancer Institute. Patients wishing to get a CT lung screen will most likely have to pay the roughly $300 charge themselves because few insurers pay for such scans unless an illness is suspected. The federal Medicare program soon will reconsider paying for such screens, a Medicare official said.

Gulf residents react to still strong BP Businesses still hurting months after oil spill By Brian Skoloff and Jane Wardell The Associated Press

BILOXI, Miss. — BP PLC is once again reporting profits even with an estimated $40 billion price tag for the response to its blown-out well in the Gulf of Mexico. In this waterfront city, where many lost their livelihoods to the summer of oil, a mixture of relief and melancholy greeted the news last week. A financially healthy BP means jobs and compensation, but residents still reeling from the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history are waiting for some good news of their own. BP said that costs related to the April 20 oil spill dragged down its thirdquarter profit by more than 60 percent. The London-based company earned $1.79 billion from July through September, compared with $5.3 billion a year earlier. But the fact BP returned to profits at all, coming after a loss of $17.2 billion in the second quarter, indicated the company’s operations remain solid despite the spill. “That’s real good news they’re making money because at least we know they have the ability to pay us over a long period of time because we’ve still got a lot of problems,” said shrimp processor Rudy Lesso, whose Biloxi, Miss., business is down about 25 percent because much of the public is still afraid to eat Gulf seafood. BP has set up a $20 billion compensation fund to pay victims of the oil spill, cutting roughly $1.7 billion in checks so far. But the process has been slow and cumbersome for struggling Gulf coast residents.

BP’s third-quarter performance, reported Tuesday, fell well short of the industry norm. All the other major oil companies, except Chevron, have reported stronger third-quarter profits thanks to higher oil and gas prices. The company’s $40 billion estimate for its overall spill response was $7.7 billion higher than its previous estimate provided during its second-quarter results released this summer, largely because of unanticipated additional expenses. The company had already spent $11.2 billion responding to the spill by the end of September. None of that, however, kept BP Chief Executive Bob Dudley from delivering a rosy prognosis.

Rebuilding reputation Dudley has been working to rebuild BP’s shattered reputation, particularly in the United States, and turn around a 35 percent rout in the company’s share price since the Gulf explosion.

We just want them to do the right thing,” Nungesser said. “We hope they make a lot of money and reinvest it in the communities that have been hardest hit.”

NEW ORLEANS — For the first time, federal scientists have found damage to deep sea coral and other marine life on the ocean floor several miles from the blown-out BP well — a strong indication that damage from the spill could be significantly greater than officials had previously acknowledged.

Carbon fiber plant may double in size Gregoire says the facility could be largest in world The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — Gov. Chris Gregoire said the new carbon-fiber plant being built in Moses Lake may double in size because of strong demand by the German carmaker BMW. Gregoire is returning

from a three-day trip to Germany, where she met with executives of BMW and SGL Automotive, a European carbon manufacturing company. The two companies have a joint venture that is building a plant in Moses Lake to produce the composite

material for BMW’s new electric car. In a statement Friday released by her Olympia office, the governor said that BMW thinks the composite can be widely used throughout its automotive line, but it can’t get enough of it. She said she expects that directors of the two companies will decide on the expansion early next year. If it goes through, she said, it would result in the largest carbon-fiber manu-

Agriculture is still the major business for Moses Lake and surrounding Grant County. But low hydropower rates are drawing an increasing number of hightech companies, including a plant to make solar cell materials and several electricity-intensive computer server farms. BMW and SGL also are interested in a potential partnership with the Uni-

facturing plant in the world, with some 160 permanent jobs. The $100 million plant initially will employ 80 workers. It now supports about 200 construction jobs.

Pierce Commercial is 11th bank to fail Construction lending leads to big losses Peninsula Daily News news services

TACOMA — Pierce Commercial Bank, closed by regulators Friday, is the 11th bank to fail in the state this year — a victim in part of losses from massive mortgage fraud. Heritage Bank of Olympia agreed to acquire all of the Tacoma bank’s deposits and essentially all of its assets from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., officials said. As of Sept. 30, the onebranch bank in Tacoma had $221.1 million in assets and $193.5 million in deposits. The Pierce Commercial failure was a combination of heavy losses from lending in both construction and mortgages, said Brad Williamson, banking director for the state Department of Financial Institutions. Federal agencies are conducting a criminal investigation of mortgage losses at the bank.

Bellevue wire fraud In September, a Bellevue resident, Mark Ashmore, was convicted in federal court in Seattle on four counts of wire fraud and conspiracy in connection with a mortgage-fraud scheme against Pierce Commercial and other lenders. And in a civil lawsuit filed last summer, prosecutors asked a judge to order Shawn Portmann, the senior vice president of Pierce Commercial’s mortgage-lending division from 2005 to July 2008, to turn

over $102,000 in cash that he allegedly handed to an associate in a bag early this year. The suit disclosed that the FBI began investigating the bank’s home-lending division in June 2009. According to the lawsuit, the FBI concluded that Portmann alone originated 5,253 loans for more than $990 million — nearly half of the mortgage-subsidiary’s total — and that more than half of the loans were fraudulent. “It was a big contributor to the downfall of the bank,” Williamson said Friday. Portmann has not been charged with any crimes, and has denied all allegations in the civil case. His attorney could not be reached late Friday. The FDIC held an auction for Pierce Commercial about two weeks ago, and four banks submitted bids, said Greg Hernandez, an FDIC spokesman. Heritage is paying a premium of 1 percent to assume all of Pierce Commercial’s deposits. The estimated cost to the FDIC fund is $21.3 million. Heritage reported about $855 million in assets and nearly $720.2 million in deposits June 30. The bank has 15 branches, none of them on the North Olympic Peninsula.

Peninsula closures Williamson said that this latest FDIC deal is the first in Washington state where the entire bank is passing to the acquiring bank, with no assets or brokered deposits being retained by the FDIC. Regulators closed three other banks Friday — in Maryland and California — bringing the year’s toll to 143 and topping last year’s 140. The 143 closures so far this year are the most in a year since the savings-andloan crisis two decades ago.

The last bank closure on the North Olympic Peninsula was April 30, when Frontier Bank’s three branches in Port Angeles, Sequim and Port Townsend — and 47 other offices in Washington and Oregon — were shut down by regulators after Frontier had struggled for more than a year with a morass of soured real estate loans. Frontier’s banks reopened May 2 as branches of San Francisco-based Union Bank. Two other banks with Peninsula branches have been closed since last year — Bainbridge Island-based American Marine Bank, taken over Jan. 30 by Tacomabased Columbia Bank, and Bremerton-based Westsound Bank, closed May 9, 2009. Westsound’s accounts were assumed by Kitsap Bank.

Sterling Savings Bank The parent company of Sterling Savings Bank recently raised $730 million from private equity and institutional investors, a milestone that helps the state’s second-largest bank avoid being seized by regulators and sold to the highest bidder. Sterlingoperatesbranches in Port Angeles and Forks. The growing bank failures have sapped billions of dollars out of the FDIC’s deposit insurance fund. It fell into the red last year, and its deficit stood at $15.2 billion as of June 30. The FDIC expects the cost of resolving failed banks to total around $52 billion from 2010 through 2014. Depositors’ money — insured up to $250,000 per account — is not at risk, with the FDIC backed by the government. That insurance cap was made permanent in the financial overhaul law enacted in July.


Thank Goodness for Speech One of my favorite memories from the Bushwhacker happened years ago. I wasn’t even there. I go to a yoga class at Park View Villa. One of the women came up to me after a class and said, “Bob, were you there the night of my husband’s 75th birthday? He had become blind in his 50s and his world changed dramatically. I gave him a surprise birthday with balloons and everything at your restaurant. The dinner and party were a great success. He wanted me to describe everything. The color of the balloons, the look on people’s faces. He was lit up with joy. Afterwards he said that it was the most fun he’d ever had in his life!”

Tax credit increases, extends through 2011 Peninsula Daily News

Section 179 Tax Credit

news services

Local business and tax advisers are telling companies to consider making software or equipment purchases before the end of the year. A business tax credit for buying equipment, which was set to expire Dec. 31, has been increased and extended through 2011 with the recent passage of the Small Business Jobs and Credit Act. But additional benefits are now available to those who take advantage of the credit this year. Businesses can now deduct up to $500,000 from their federal income taxes for equipment and software they buy or lease and then put into service under Section 179 of the tax code. The new credit is double what the law allowed when limits were increased under former President George W. Bush’s Economic Stimulus Act of 2008 and President Barack Obama’s extension of the act in 2009. Businesses that spend more than $2 million on equipment for the year aren’t eligible for the full deduction.

n What it is: A business tax credit for buying or leasing equipment and putting it into service during the same year. n How it works: Profitable businesses can deduct the credit on their tax returns to reduce taxable income. n What changed: The tax credit limits were increased, and the program was extended until Dec. 31, 2011. n Old tax credit: Up to $250,000 for businesses that spend less than $800,000. n New tax credit: Up to $500,000 for businesses that spend less than $2 million. n For more information: http://www.irs. gov/publications/p946/ch02.html#d0e1927. Peninsula Daily News But that limit, too, has increased. Previously, the full deduction was available only for companies spending more than $800,000. Those that spend more than the limit can still claim a reduced tax credit. For details, consult the IRS or your tax adviser. Raising spending limits and boosting the maximum tax credit has made more medium-size to large businesses eligible to take advantage of the credit in 2010 and 2011, said Ryan Greear, a tax manager at

the Frumenti, Lander & Wallace accounting firm in Vancouver, Wash. It is less meaningful for small businesses, since so few spend several hundred thousand dollars on equipment in a year, he said. The 2011 tax credit extension also means those businesses that don’t have the cash flow to make equipment investments in 2010 can still benefit from a tax break next year, Greear said. Without the recent vote, the credit would have reverted to its original limit, allowing companies spending less than $200,000 to receive a credit of up to $25,000. Business consultant Albert Christensen is advising his clients that have been profitable in 2010 to buy or lease equipment before the end of the year to benefit from the extra cash in 2011 for hiring and expansion purposes. “Now’s the time to make your investment if you’re in a position to,” said Christensen, a contract chief financial officer in Vancouver with Phoenix-based B2B CFO. Especially “if next year is looking like a better year,” he said. It is uncertain whether the larger tax credits will spur new spending, however, even though that’s exactly what Congress hoped for when it extended and increased the tax credit.

Canadian couple donate lottery win The Associated Press

LOWER TRURO, Nova Scotia — A Canadian couple who won $10.9 million in the lottery just gave it away. Allen and Violet Large won their fortune in a July 14 Lotto 649 draw and decided to donate 98 percent of it, some $10.6 million, saving the rest for a rainy day. “We were quite happy with what we had and the way we were going,” said Allen Large, a 75-year-old retired welder. “We have no plans. We’re not travelers. We’re not night-prowlers. We’re not bar-hoppers.” After taking care of their family, the Larges donated the bulk of the prize to churches, fire departments, cemeteries and the Red Cross in Lower Truro, as well as hospitals where Vio-

let — who has cancer — has undergone chemotherapy treatments. Large said he and his wife decided a week before they picked up their winnings to give most of it away. He said they had worked for 30 years in Ontario and put away money every year before retiring and returning home to Nova Scotia. “We weren’t millionaires before, but we had enough to keep us going in our retirement years,” said Allen Large. Word of the couple’s generosity has generated a wealth of attention from the media both in Canada and abroad. “We’re not used to all this attention,” Large said from the couple’s modest The Associated Press home in Lower Truro. “We’re just plain, old Allen and Violet Large hug Wednesday in the kitchen of their Lower Truro, N.S., Canada home.

State tightens rules for driver’s licenses Peninsula Daily News news services

OLYMPIA — One of only three states where illegal immigrants can still obtain driver’s licenses, Washington is moving to tighten the rules. Beginning Monday, the state Department of Licensing will require people without a Social Security number who are seeking a new driver’s license to provide proof they actually live here. While a few in that category may be U.S. citizens and legal residents, most are illegal immigrants. The new rules do not mean you need to be a U.S. citizen to get a license in this state, but it does mean you must be able to show you live in the state. Washington is alone with New Mexico and Utah in issuing driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants. And officials say an alarming number of out-ofstate residents without Social Security numbers have been obtaining licenses here in recent years — this year more than double what it was three years ago.

Officials believe many of these licenses are fraudulent, issued to people who aren’t moving here but who say they are because they can no longer renew their driver’s licenses in the states they live in. “People are coming in with licenses about to expire from another state,” said Brad Benfield, spokesman for the department. “This is putting pressure on our services. “

1 million annually A driver’s license is the most basic form of identification, used for everything from applying for government services to boarding domestic flights. The licensing department issues around 1 million first-time and renewed licenses a year. State law requires those who apply for a driver’s license or state ID card to be a resident of Washington. They must also provide a Social Security number. Three years ago, the state began requiring everyone to provide proof of residency after officials uncov-

OLYMPIA — The deadline for removing political signs along state highways is Friday. The signs not only litter the roadside, they can ered scams in which individuals were charging illegal immigrants a fee to help them obtain Washington driver’s licenses. But the requirement was a hassle for so many people that the agency dropped it earlier this year. Now, it is reinstating the proof-of-residency requirement, but only for those without a Social Security number. “We believe there’s fraud going on,” Benfield said. “We are determined to eliminate that by putting more scrutiny on the folks

While Washington and New Mexico continue to offer them, Utah issues licenses to illegal immigrants only to drive, not for identification. At the same time, Washington saw a rise in the number of people who had to sign Social Security declarations. Licensing officials see the abnormally high decla-

If the signs still aren’t removed, violators can be charged with a misdemeanor, which carries a penalty of up to $1,000 and 90 days in jail. ration rates — 65 percent of all applicants from North Carolina, for example; 58 percent for those coming from Michigan — as a sign that people are obtaining licenses here, then returning to their lives in other states.

Tighter rules Before the state eliminated the proof-of-residency requirement at the start of the year, people could meet it with a range of documents including copies of utility bills, cell phone bills

and auto-insurance cards. Benfield said they will no longer accept as proof certain kinds of documents, such as cell phone or cable bills. Those bent on deceit, he said, usually cancel those accounts as soon as they are issued their licenses. The documents accepted will be copied and scrutinized by department technicians — not counter staff — to ensure validity, he said. Applicants will get nonphoto, temporary authorization to drive, with a license issued only after the documents have been validated. The ability to change state law to require proof of legal status to get a driver’s license rests with the Legislature, where past efforts have stalled. Washingtonians have also not been inclined to change the law. This year, for the fifth year in a row, an initiative to deny licenses to illegal immigrants failed to get enough signatures to get on the ballot.

Light truck sales a signal economy is improving? By Sharon Silke Carty The Associated Press

Why it’s happening Here are the trends behind the stronger truck sales: n  People are spending more. n  Personal savings rates are coming down. The most recent figures show the rate has decreased from a yearly high of 6.4 percent in June to 5.3 percent in September — meaning people don’t feel the need to hoard cash at the bank. n  Gasoline is still affordable.

range through the peak of truck and SUV popularity, but not enough to hinder sales. (Regular gas averages $3.03 on the North Olympic Peninsula, price checks show.) Truck sales are “encouraging because we know that gasoline prices have not been particularly low recently,” said Dana Johnson, chief economist for Comerica Bank. Promotions are helping. Ford, which just wrapped up a month of zero-percent

financing offers on its F-series pickup trucks, saw sales jump 24.2 percent in October. George Pipas, manager

of sales analysis for Ford, said sales of the F-series have been rebounding this year, as small-business owners return to the market.

OLYMPIA — If you named your child Isabella or Alexander last year, they may have a lot of company when they start school. They were the most popular baby names in the state in 2009, according to the state Department of Health, which keeps tabs on this sort of thing. The top five names for girls were Isabella, Olivia, Sophia, Emma and Abigail. For boys, the top names were Alexander, Jacob, William, Ethan and Daniel. Just a few letters can clearly make a big difference. In the list of the top 100 names, the least popular name for a girl was Isabel.

For boys, it was Lincoln. The state Health Department has been tracking the popularity of baby names since 1980. The most common name in 1980 for a girl was Jennifer. Michael was the top choice for boys. Michael has appeared in the top 10 every year except for the past three. Jennifer was in the top 10 for all of the 1980s but has slipped down the list since then. In 2009, it was 97th. After gradually increasing every year since 2002, the number of births in the state has decreased. About 1,000 fewer babies were born in 2009 than in 2008.

After nearly eight straight years of dominating the vehicle sales market, truck sales quickly declined after that gas-price spike, which was driven by fears that demand from China would constrain U.S. supplies. Now, gas prices are around $2.80 a gallon, according to AAA, higher than the $1.50 to $1.90


DETROIT — Trucks outsold cars by the highest margin in nearly five years in October, a small sign that the economy may be starting to improve. These trucks aren’t the tractor-trailers that haul freight. They were vehicles such as pickups, SUVs, minivans and smaller SUVs, which made up 54 percent of all U.S. vehicle sales, according to industry tracker J.D. Power and Associates, while cars made up 46 percent of the market. That is the biggest margin of difference between the two categories since December 2005, when trucks accounted for 56 percent of sales. Strong truck sales make economists giddy because it means people are willing to spend money again.

Small-business owners feel comfortable enough to buy a new pickup or delivery van for their company; and regular folks are confident enough in their jobs and finances to take on beefy SUV payments.

Using cute as aid to conservation Books use animal baby photos to promote cause By Sue Manning

The Associated Press

NEW YORK — What makes a good baby picture? On, the babies have to be wild. Maybe obscure. Possibly endangered. Mostly, they have to be cute. “Cute always comes first,” said Chris Eastland, an artist and photographer from Brooklyn, N.Y., who joined forces with Andrew Bleiman of Chicago to create two years ago. Their website delivers birth announcements from zoos and aquariums around the world. It gets about a million hits a month. The men are publishing

a pair of hardcover books through Simon & Schuster — ZooBorns! a 32-page children’s book released last month, and a longer book for all ages also called ZooBorns, which is just out. The Association of Zoos and Aquariums gets 10 percent from sales. “It’s win, win, win for us,” said Jill Nicoll, AZA’s senior vice president of marketing.

Cute for a cause The AZA benefits not just because of the royalties, but because promoting zoo babies is good for the conservation cause. “And it’s cute,” she added. Bleiman hasn’t counted since summer, but as of

thousands of insect species alone,” he said. “There are plenty of species left to share.” So are some animal births too ugly to make the cute cut? “We don’t do a lot of insect larvae or spiders,” Bleiman said. “Some organisms are too unpleasant to put on the site. There is nothing cute at all. A tiny fraction of the population would pine after a baby spider.”

Amphibians They did post the July birth of a Caecilian, a legless amphibian, at the Tennessee Aquarium. “Some people found it The Associated Press creepy-crawly, and others The cover of ZooBorns! by Andrew Bleiman and were fascinated,” Bleiman Chris Eastland, from Beach Lane Books. said. “We show ugly birds all then, they had featured animals, he said, is there the time. Some think they around 600 births from 165 are so many species. are cute, and others recoil.” different species. “There are tens of thouThey also hold off on The great thing about sands, maybe hundreds of some announcements, wait-

ing for cuteness to settle in. Baby pandas are a good example, Eastland said. They are born pink, furless and no bigger than a stick of butter. By around 4 months, they are melting hearts. “The all-time most popular post was the fennec fox,” Eastland said. Radar Ears, from Seoul, is on the cover of one book and inside the other. A Bengal tiger made the cover of the children’s book, and its twin is inside. Lions and tigers are always a big hit, and Eastland likes polar bear and panda cubs because of the obvious message. But at ZooBorns, the success of any photo depends on how many w’s people put at the end of the word aw, Eastman said. “It’s hard to engage people in the conservation side of this,” Eastland said, “but it is our biggest message, and we try to deliver it through adorableness.”

Disguised passenger worries security chief By Rob Gillies

Authorities did not release information about the passenger’s identity or why he was seeking refugee status — but did say he was a citizen of mainland China.

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Saturday that the case of a young Chinese man who boarded a flight to Canada disguised as an elderly white man raises concerns about a security breach that terrorists might exploit. Authorities have not suggested any terrorist link to the case of the man who boarded the Air Canada flight in Hong Kong on Oct. 29 wearing a silicone mask to make him look like an elderly man. Canadian border officials called it an “unbelievable case of concealment.” An internal intelligence alert from the CBSA —

Later in the flight, however, “the subject attended the washroom and emerged an Asian-looking male that appeared to be in his early 20s.” The CBSA said the man had a bag that contained a “disguise kit which consisted of a silicone type head and neck mask of an elderly Caucasian male, a brown leather cap, glasses and a thin brown cardigan.”

Suspension raises debate about objectivity Olbermann’s show MSNBC’s top program Peninsula Daily News news services

NEW YORK — The abrupt suspension of MSNBC’s liberal-leaning host Keith Olbermann for making donations to Democratic candidates has ignited a national debate over journalistic objectivity and media partisanship — with many critics, including a U.S. senator, questioning the motives of network parent GE as it prepares to hand the No. 2 cable-news outlet to new owners. “Is this simply a ‘personality conflict’ within MSNBC, or is one of America’s major corporations

cracking down on a viewpoint they may not like?” Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Vermont independent, asked late Friday, calling the suspension “outrageous.” The uproar comes just days after NPR, another news outlet often accused of liberal leanings, landed in hot water after it fired commentator Juan Williams for making remarks deemed objectionable to Muslims. The Olbermann affair unfolded quickly. The website called MSNBC on Thursday night and began asking about Olbermann’s contributions of $2,400 apiece to Democratic Reps. Raul Grijalva and Gabrielle Giffords, of Arizona, and Democratic Senate candidate Jack Conway in Kentucky. NBC has rules against news employees contribut-

Substitute host The Friday “Countdown” was supposed to be hosted by Chris Hayes, a familiar guest on the show, but the network pulled his name after it was revealed he had also contributed to Democratic campaigns. Thomas Roberts, an anchor and correspondent for MSNBC, was tapped to substitute. Newsgathering organizations generally frown on journalists openly support-

ing political candidates or causes, but Olbermann’s partisanship — on full display in “Countdown” — has gotten MSNBC in trouble in the past. He anchored the network’s election coverage Tuesday and was attacked in some quarters for favoring Democrats and ridiculing Republicans. When critics complained about his lack of objectivity during the 2008 election cycle, network executives ultimately brought in David Gregory. Olbermann attracted some unlikely supporters Friday. Conservative writer Bill Kristol, who frequently appears on Fox News, wrote in a blog post: “Perhaps Olbermann violated NBC News ‘policy and standards.’ “But NBC doesn’t have real news standards for MSNBC — otherwise the channel wouldn’t exist. “It’s a little strange to get all high and mighty

behind, at 26.2 percent, while RIM’s BlackBerry phones fell to 22 percent in the third quarter from 28 percent of units sold in the second quarter. In last year’s third quarter, Android’s operating system was in only 3 percent of phones, while RIM’s system held sway in 46 percent of the market, according to NPD. Apple also is taking a bite out of BlackBerry by selling 14 million phones in the third quarter, compared with 12 million by RIM. Of the nation’s five bestselling handsets, the iPhone unseated the BlackBerry Curve 8500 as No. 1 during the third quarter, with LG Cosmos coming in third. Two popular Android phones, the Motorola Droid

X and the HTC EVO 04, ranked fourth and fifth, respectively. Michael Walkley, an analyst at Canaccord Genuity, a global capital markets research company, said that Apple’s and Android’s successes come down to more phone applications and greater support from AT&T and Verizon. When the iPhone 4 becomes available for Verizon users in the first quarter of 2011, it could dent Android’s popularity, he said. “I think when it becomes more accessible, quite a few consumers will switch to the iPhone and potentially slow down the growth of Android phones,” Walkley said.

The network is battling CNN for second place in cable news against longtime No. 1 Fox News. Olbermann’s current contract is said to expire in 2012. As part of NBC Universal, MSNBC will soon become part of cable giant Comcast, which is due to close its acquisition of the company before year’s end. “I became aware of Keith’s political contributions late last night,” MSNBC President Phil Griffin said Friday. “Mindful of MSNBC’s news policy and standards, I have suspended him indefinitely without pay.” In a statement, Olbermann said he had made the Arizona contributions after a discussion with a friend

the economy Saturday, rejecting concerns that it will spur runaway inflation. Critics, including some Fed officials, fear that all the money being injected into the economy could ignite inflation or speculative bubbles in the prices of bonds or commodities. Speaking to a conference on the Georgia coast, Bernanke said the new program, announced Wednesday, won’t push inflation to “super ordinary” levels. The Fed will buy $600 billion worth of government bonds in a bid to make loans cheaper and get Americans to spend more. Doing so would help the economy and prompt companies to boost hiring. The economy hasn’t been growing fast enough to reduce unemployment, which has been stuck at a high of 9.6 percent for three straight months. The Fed worries that high unemployment, lackluster wage gains and stillweak home values will weigh on consumer spending, a major drive of overall economic activity.

Jobs crisis eases

WASHINGTON — The jobs crisis eased just a bit last month as the American economy added 151,000 jobs, its best showing since April — yet still not enough to make a significant dent in unemployment.

NEW BIBLE Jumble Books Go To:



LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You may have the energy to take on a challenge but don’t be so sure you can win. You will be up against someone with stamina, determination and a strong will. You are better off joining forces than fighting. There is strength in numbers. 5 stars

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Your ability to take hold and get things done will interest someone who will offer you a proposition. The changes you’ve been waiting for are within reach but you may have to go about getting what you want by taking an unorthodox route. 3 stars

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Take care of any unfinished business. A relationship you have with someone can be enhanced with a little tender loving care. Consider starting a small business that can help bring your income up a notch. 3 stars

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Put more thought into what you want to do. You may need to pick up some information, knowledge or experience in order to move forward. Mixing what you know with what you learn will increase your earning potential. 4 stars

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Don’t feel pressured or put pressure on someone. Slow down and wait until the moment is right for everyone involved. Unless motives are right, it will be a waste of time. 3 stars

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Get serious before someone objects to the way you are handling personal and emotional matters. You must address situations and act responsibly if you want to be taken seriously in the future. Don’t lose out because you did too little, too late. 3 stars

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Put your heart and soul into whatever you take on today and you will bypass someone trying to make your life difficult. Focus on your needs and follow through with your plans, regardless of what anyone does or says. 4 stars

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You have plenty to gain both personally and professionally by being true to your word. Taking care of personal needs will help to relieve stress. Focus on love and romance in the evening. 5 stars

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Be creative, imaginative and spontaneous. Romance is looking good, so engage in a special night. It promises to bring you high returns, instant gratification and some interesting personal changes. 3 stars


4 Wheel Drive


ARIES (March 21-April 19): Find a way to utilize your time and skills in such a way that you can stimulate your earning potential. Setting up a budget will help but you must discipline yourself and stick to the limit you set for unnecessary purchases. 5 stars

A passionate approach will help build a support group and the confidence to follow through with your plans. 4 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t lose sight of your goals. Sitting back and relaxing with people who share a common interest will help you flush out ideas that have the potential to make money. Reveal a secret you’ve been keeping if it will help you close a deal or earn you a place in someone’s heart. 2 stars

Summaries of Ordinances Adopted by the Port Angeles City Council On November 2, 2010



CITY OF SEQUIM NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING & PUBLIC HEARING A proposed new Chapter to the Sequim Municipal Code (SMC) in Title 17 (Subdivisions) SMC, 17.66 – Renewable Energy – Ordinance #2010-025 ************************************************************ Notice is hereby given that the City of Sequim proposes to add a new chapter to the Sequim Municipal Code (Chapter 17.66 – Renewable Energy). The purpose of this chapter is to provide guidance, while encouraging the use of renewable energy systems. Also, this chapter will require that site plan elements consider shading effects on adjacent properties and avoid creating a significant adverse impact upon adjacent property owners. The intent of this chapter is to also require a percentage of created lots within subdivision proposals be designated solar-oriented lots, therefore allowing future homeowners available solar access. Notice is hereby given that the City of Sequim Planning Commission will consider the addition of this new Sequim Municipal Code Chapter, along with written and oral public comments, at a Public Meeting on: November 16, 2010 6:00 P.M. Sequim Transit Center 190 W. Cedar St. These items are considered legislative actions and must be approved by ordinance by the City Council. The Council will review a draft ordinance based on the Planning Commission recommendation, and written and oral public input at an Open Record Public Hearing to be held: December 13, 2010 6:00 P.M. Sequim Transit Center 190 W. Cedar St. The City Council will make a final determination on the proposed Sequim Municipal Code addition following the public hearing. SEPA: Based on review of existing environmental documents, including the City of Sequim Comprehensive Plan EIS and environmental checklist prepared for these amendments, the City anticipates making a threshold determination that the amendments do not require the preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement. The City anticipates that a Determination of Non Significant Impact (DNS) and Adoption of an Existing Environmental Document, i.e., the E.I.S. for the Sequim Comprehensive Plan adopted in 1996, will be adopted for these amendments. Interested parties may review the environmental documents at the City of Sequim Planning Department, (SEPA File #10/006). Future projects developed on properties affected by these additions will be subject to environmental review and documentation under state and local regulations based on the size and nature of the project. REVIEW OF MATERIALS: Written and oral comments may be presented at the Public Meeting and at the Public Hearing. All written comments must be received by close of business on November 16, 2010. The applications, plans and files for these items may be reviewed during normal working hours, at the City of Sequim Planning Department, 615 North Fifth Avenue. The Docket List and SEPA checklist are also available on the City’s Planning Department website: PLANNING DEPT. CONTACT: Joseph D.

Under the R5/RW5 zoning designation, the base residential density is 1 du per 4.8 acres. Under the NC zoning designation, the base residential density is 1 du per 5 acres, but may be increased to, at most, 1 du per 2.4 acres, under either the optional clustering technique (for properties larger than 11 acres) or the optional overlay-infill technique (for properties smaller than 11 acres), if all other criteria set forth in CCC 33.10.015 are met. All the parcels proposed for rezoning to NC were zoned at more intensive rural zoning designations (with base residential densities of at least 1 du per 1 acre) from 1995 until 2008, at which time they were down-zoned to R5/RW5 as a result of GMA compliance orders that found that these particular parcels did not qualify for LAMIRD designation. The resolution (Res. 88, 2008) accompanying the ordinance (835) downzoning these excluded LAMIRD parcels called for a future review of these parcels, for potential rezoning to any new compliant rural zoning designation that might be devised for the invalidated Rural Moderate (R2/RW2) zoned areas (with a base residential density of 1 du per 2.4 acres). The zoning designation that was devised for the invalidated R2/RW2 zoned areas is the NC zone (Ord. 852). This zone was determined to be GMA compliant by the WWGMHB, and became effective on or about February 19, 2010. Of the 600 parcels (2,885 acres) that qualified for review under Res. 88, 2008, 505 parcels (2,657 acres) are being proposed for rezoning to NC. Interested parties are invited to attend the public hearing and make their views known. Written comments will be accepted until the close of public hearing on November 17, 2010, after which time the Planning Commission will forward their recommendations to the Board of Clallam County Commissioners for further action. Written comments must be submitted to the Clallam County Department of Community Development, Planning Division, at the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 East Fourth Street, Suite 5, Port Angeles, WA 98362, (360) 417-2277 or to For more information, contact the Planning Division.

After review of the completed environmental checklist and other information on file with the agency, the Clallam County Responsible Official has determined that the above actions will not have probable significant adverse impacts on the environment. Copies of the proposal, the DNS, and the environmental checklist are available at the Department of Community Development during normal business hours and they can also be found any time at The fourteen-day comment period for this preliminary threshold determination ends on November 22, 2010. Unless the Responsible Official withdraws the threshold determination pursuant to WAC 197-11-340(3)(a), the threshold determination shall be final at the end of the comment period. On October 12, 2010, Clallam County submitted to the Washington State Department of Commerce its 60-day notice of its intent to amend its Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Map as described above, pursuant to RCW 36.70A.106.

She joined a local singles group and went to a party. “One tall, nicely dressed man stood out,” she said. “Dan came over, introduced himself, and we had a wonderful conversation.” They continued to run into each other. They talked, but he never flirted. He told Carla he’d been divorced for 15 years and was on a dating sabbatical. He’d made poor choices in the past and was taking a break.

balance Blake teaches healing with body’s energy

By Diane Urbani de la Paz for

Peninsula Woman

PORT ANGELES — This is a story of metamorphosis, of new beginnings and of liberation from pain. And Kelmie Blake’s story bears poetic parallels to that of the namesake for her business, Dragonfly Healing Arts. A dragonfly spends its early life underwater, a nymph moving below the surface, inhaling and exhaling through gills. When the nymph — let’s say a female — is ready to metamorphose into the next stage of life, she ascends a reed or a blade of grass. The instant she senses air, she breathes it in. The new dragonfly climbs out of her old skin, spreads her wings, looks out with her multifaceted eyes, and flies. In flight, the dragonfly can carry herself upward and down, forward and side to side — wherever she sees fit to go for nourishment. Blake, who’s made her

developing her practice, and enjoying her new surroundings in a downstairs space in the old Carpenters Hall at First and Peabody streets. At 42, she’s also enjoying being a newlywed, having married Tyler Spires a little over six months ago. He lived across the alley from her back in 2009; though he’s quite shy, Spires befriended Blake and helped out when she moved to another house in Port Angeles. When they announced their plans for an April 22 — aka Earth Day — wedding, the pair surprised just about everybody. “People told me, ‘You’ll never find a man in Port Angeles,’” Blake recalls. “I didn’t even have to leave my yard.” Her husband, owner of Spires Roofing Co., helped transform Blake’s new office and treatment space. “It was ugly and cavernous,” she says, so she could scarcely picture it as a place for healing. Today, Dragonfly Healing Arts is a mellow, lavenderhued hideaway, lined with books and a few wall hangings depicting butterflies, hearts and the chakras. Blake is reveling in her new life, and in attending to the balance of work and family. Practicing and teaching her chosen form of medicine, not surprisingly, continues to refresh. “I love it. I love seeing people get better,” she says. “I love seeing people take charge of their health.”

Talk with dad about Lavin: Ex wasn’t an ex need for perfection Continued from 2

MY HUSBAND THINKS that our 5-yearold should do everything right and never make a mistake. He treats him like an adult and wants him to be organized. How can I possibly explain to him that this way of thinking is too farfetched and our son can only get better if he is allowed to make mistakes? My husband grew up without a father and tried to be both a son and a partner to his mom. He found himself trying to accept responsibility for things he really didn’t understand and didn’t have any experience with. He was far too young and tried never to make mistakes for fear of losing his mom’s respect and love. His childhood was pretty much a mess from the time he was 5.

Can you help? This may seem like a foolish question, but it is a real problem in our family. Our twins will soon turn 6 and are already questioning whether or not the tooth fairy will leave $5 for each tooth like their friends get. This seems much too extravagant to us.

There is a multitude of possibilities as to why your

husband has such a troubling opinion. Sometimes people who were bullied when they were younger are trying to toughen up their kids to escape similar pain. Nevertheless, it is a huge mistake for any parent to pass on emotional damages they suffered as a child to their own children, regardless of what the parent’s intentions may be. Talk with your husband and patiently explain to him that it’d be great if we could teach our children how to avoid costly errors in life, but there isn’t a way to make them perfectly listen and adhere to what we want them to do. Children who are forced to grow up too quickly and never allowed to make mistakes will only become confused, frustrated and plagued with self-esteem difficulties. Children pressured in this way through the entirety of their childhoods sometimes grow up

Carla called a friend, and they took all of Dan’s things and dumped them in his dad’s driveway. “After these two men, I’m cynical and bitter and don’t know if I can ever trust again,” said Carla. “And, sad and pathetic as it may be, I still have feelings for Dan. How can I tell if a man is sincere and has integrity?” You could start by paying attention to red flags.

believing that nothing they ever do is good enough for anyone. Eventually, such a parenting attitude may backfire as the child simply stops trying. It is in the best interest of every child to be allowed to build their own life skills through mistakes, accepting and embracing the valuable lessons. It’s how we grow to become healthy individuals, love ourselves, get along with others and move forward in life in a positive manner.


It could be possible that your husband had a relative of significant value to him that left the family unit. Try to discuss this in greater detail with him. Getting him to remember what affected his life, when and why, might shed new light on the current situation. It took me six months to finally figure out why my husband did the same thing with our 6-year-old son. Once he started talking and taking a deeper look at his demeaning attitude, he slowly changed his thoughts on having our son grow up too soon. — W. T. in Waikiki, Hawaii
