Dos Okies Barbeque closes Owner retires, shuts business; interested party being sought BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND — Just before Dos Okies Barbeque closed down for good this week, owner Larry Dennison reflected on his years in Port Townsend, where he has lived and worked since 1974. “I’ve been a butcher, a baker and a candlestick maker,” he said. “I was also in politics, but I’m not sure exactly where that fits in.” On Tuesday, Dennison, 66, closed the popular eatery that has operated at 2310 Washington St. since 2006 “because I’m just worn out.” He decided to move on a year ago
and asked an employee, Mark Murray, whether he was interested in taking over the business. When Murray declined, Dennison turned his birthday, Sept. 30, into a target retirement date. That came and went, so he picked the end of the year to close, whether or not someone could be found to take over the business.
Seeking new owner He is investigating two new owner possibilities, “one who is local, and one from Seattle who wants to become local,” he said. He hopes the business won’t stay closed for too long but said that is out of his control. “I’ll be here to help train a new owner if they want me to, but the person who has first rights of refusal doesn’t plan to have a barbecue place,” he said.
When Dennison first moved to Port Townsend from Oklahoma, he lived above the Town Tavern before opening a shoe repair shop.
Former county commissioner He was elected as a Jefferson County commissioner in 1984 and served two terms but was defeated in a primary contest in 1992 by County Assessor Jack Westerman, who himself was defeated in the general election. Westerman also retired Tuesday. “I didn’t know that. I’ll have to call and congratulate him,” Dennison said. “It hurt at the time to be ‘unelected,’ especially in a small town where everyone knows you.” Dennison now calls his election defeat “providence.” Shortly after the loss, Dennison married public health nurse Julia Danskin.

WHIDBEY ISLAND — Jet noise from the Naval Air Station Whidbey Island is expected Monday and Thursday when field carrier landing practice is planned at the Outlying Landing Field in Coupeville. It may be heard in Port Townsend or other areas of the North Olympic Peninsula. The practice involving EA-6B Prowler and EA-18G Growler jets will take place during the late afternoon and early evening hours Monday and Wednesday, the Navy said.
Flights through the summer The schedule for the flights, which are expected to continue through the summer, will be released a week ahead so residents can know when — or if — tests are scheduled for community planning purposes, said Mike Welding, naval base spokesman. Welding said the announcements will be posted each Thursday on the base’s Facebook page, http://tinyurl.com/PDN-Whidbey-Tests, with a notice if no tests are planned for the following week. “It’s hard for us to update our Web page, so Facebook has worked very well for us in order to get the information out,” Welding said. Residents living in Coupeville and around the Outlying Field will notice an increase in noise, the Navy said.
May be heard in PT The noise will possibly be audible for Port Townsend residents since it easily carries across the water from Whidbey Island, according to Port Townsend Mayor David King. Tests about 8 miles as the plane flies from Port Townsend began in 2008 and have prompted continuous complaints since then, The Seattle Times has reported. TURN
Former Forks dogs thin but in fair condition Several showed malnourishment BY PAUL GOTTLIEB PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
GOLDEN VALLEY, Ariz. — Veterinary specialists examining the 124 dogs formerly of Steve Markwell’s Olympic Animal Sanctuary in Arizona have found the animals to be thin — some greatly so — but in generally fair condition. Certified veterinary technician Sherri Watson of Mohave Valley Animal Hospital said 76 of the dogs, many of which are not family-friendly and are considered unadoptable, were examined this week.
“They weren’t in dire need of medical treatment or anything,” Watson said, but several of the dogs were “quite thin.” The animals most commonly showed signs of being malnourished, she added.
Two dogs transported One extremely thin dog and another that was having seizures were transported to an animalcare facility in Las Vegas, Watson said. “Some of them could have used some grooming,” she added.
Examinations, including those by veterinarian Dr. Dalen Sites of the Mohave Valley Animal Hospital, are expected to be completed by Monday, said Robert Misseri, president of the animal welfare group Guardians of Rescue, which is coordinating the animals’ care and eventual distribution to animal rescue groups. Markwell, who founded Olympic Animal Sanctuary in Forks, loaded the dogs into a climatecontrolled 53-foot trailer Dec. 21 and headed for Golden Valley, Ariz., arriving Christmas Eve at JERI GILMORE/MOHAVE VALLEY ANIMAL HOSPITAL the Rescued Unwanted Furry Dr. Dalen Sites, a veterinarian with the Mohave Valley Friends Foundation shelter.

JUANITA MOORE — 99, according to her grandson, though accounts of her age have differed over the years — a groundbreaking actress and an Academy Award nominee for her role as Lana Turner’s black friend in the classic weeper “Imitation of Life,” has died. Actor Kirk Kelleykahn, her grandson, said Ms. Moore collapsed and died Wednesday at her home Ms. Moore in Los Ange- in 1960 les. Ms. Moore was only the fifth black performer to be nominated for an Oscar, receiving the nod for the glossy Douglas Sirk film that became a big hit and later gained a cult following. The 1959 tearjerker, based on a Fannie Hurst novel and a remake of a 1934 film, tells the story of a struggling white actress’ rise to stardom, her friendship with a black woman and how they team up to raise their daughters as single mothers. It brought supporting actress nominations for both Ms. Moore and Susan Kohner, who played Ms. Moore’s daughter as a young adult attempting to pass as a white woman. Kohner’s own background is Czech and Mexican. By the end, Turner’s character is a star and her friend is essentially a servant. The death of Ms. Moore’s character sets up the sentimental ending.

Snow began falling overnight in parts of New England and New York, but the real brunt of the storm wasn’t expected to hit until later Thursday. As much as a foot of snow or more was forecast for some areas overnight Thursday into today, and temperatures were expected to plummet, with some areas seeing highs just above zero, according to the National Weather Service. Up to 14 inches of snow is forecast for the Boston area, and the National Weather Service issued a blizzard warning for Long Island — where 8 to 10 inches of snow could fall and winds could gust up to 45 mph — from Thursday evening into this afternoon.

Briefly: World Newspapers call for clemency in Snowden case LONDON — The Guardian and The New York Times newspapers have called for clemency for Edward Snowden, saying that the espionage-workerturned-privacy advocate should be praised rather than punished for his disclosures. Snowden’s revelations about the United States’ world-spanning espionage activities have ignited a global debate over civil liberties and surveillance. But his mass disclosure of top-secret data has earned him spying charges in the U.S., and he has settled in Russia following an abortive attempt to flee to Latin America. In editorials, the Times and the Guardian — both of which have published material from Snowden’s intelligence trove — backed Snowden’s decision to go public and said the 30-year-old deserved praise for his action, not prosecution.

Ice-bound ship passengers rescued by helicopter Weather thwarted recent attempts BY ROD MCGUIRK THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
CANBERRA, Australia — All 52 passengers trapped for more than a week on an icebound Russian research ship in the Antarctic were rescued Thursday when a Chinese helicopter swooped in and plucked them
from the ice a dozen at a time. The dramatic international rescue operation became possible once inclement weather finally cleared. Blinding snow, strong winds, fog and thick sea ice forced rescuers to turn back time and again. The twin-rotor helicopter carried the scientists and tourists from the Russian ship MV Akademik Shokalskiy to an Australian icebreaker, according to the Australian Maritime
Safety Authority’s Rescue Coordination Centre, which oversaw the rescue.
Impromptu landing site At one point, the passengers linked arms and stomped out a landing site in the snow next to the Russian ship for the helicopter. The rescue came after days of failed attempts to reach the vessel, which had been trapped since Christmas Eve.

POLICE IN EUREKA, Calif., identified a suspect Thursday in the killing of a respected priest who was found dead in a church rectory in Northern California on New Year’s Day. Eureka police have issued an arrest warrant for Gary Lee Bullock, 43, of Redway in the bludgeoning death of the Rev. Eric Freed, according to a statement. Officials are still investigating a motive in the killing, but Bullock had been in and out of police custody in the hours leading up to Freed’s death. It is not clear exactly when Freed was killed as he was last seen during Tuesday evening Mass.
INVESTIGATORS WERE ON the scene Thursday following a suspected arson overnight at the Chinese Consulate in San Francisco. The consulate said in a statement a person came out of a minivan parked late Wednesday night in front of the consulate’s main entrance and splashed two buckets of gasoline onto the front door before setting it on fire. It was unclear how the consulate knows this or whether there was video surveillance footage or witnesses. Firefighters brought the flames under control minutes later. No injuries were reported.

While the farm’s big red barn is filled with farm implements behind its big wooden doors, the little glass door of Ridle’s minibarn holds everything from wild horses to hobbits. “We wanted to make a great place to stop and pick up a story,” Ridle said. His little red barn at 702 Kitchen-Dick Road is the first Little Free Library in Sequim.

Judge issues bench warrant for Markwell Order for failure to appear PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
FORKS — A bench warrant for the arrest of Steve Markwell, director of Olympic Animal Sanctuary in Forks, was issued Thursday after he failed to appear in court on a charge of malicious mischief for allegedly kicking the car of one of the protesters outside his sanctuary in the early morning hours of Dec. 10. According to Forks police, Markwell was arrested after kicking the car of Maggie McDowell of Seattle, who was protesting outside the Forks warehouse. He was arrested and released by police.
Another hearing JERI GILMORE/MOHAVE VALLEY ANIMAL HOSPITAL
From left, Hillarie Allison, Jeri Gilmore and Dr. Dalen Sites examine Georgie, one of the animals from Olympic Marine Sanctuary in Forks.
Dogs: Animals ‘well-behaved’ CONTINUED FROM A1 Markwell made the abrupt trip following demonstrations by animal rights activists at his 1021 Russell Road warehouse and a Facebook campaign against him that had reached nationwide proportions. Critics said Markwell housed the animals in inhumane conditions at his 5,120-square-foot Forks warehouse. Markwell has denied any mistreatment. “We were told these dogs were ‘hard-case,’ but many of them we were able to take a look at actually seemed well-behaved and were not aggressive,” Watson said. “I was actually surprised. “Most of them didn’t seem too bad off,” she added. “Most of them are going to be OK. They just need a little TLC.” The animals’ behavior and demeanor “ran the gamut,” Watson said.
Examined in trailer Many were examined while they were still in the trailer. “Some were really happy to get out and have some fresh air and freedom, and some were aggressive dogs that were not able to be examined or handled,” Watson said. “For the most part, they wanted to get out and see the daylight.” Misseri said the dogs were examined Sunday, Monday and Thursday. Seven Arizona Humane Society veterinarians and veterinary technicians are helping with the examinations, he said. Markwell is not allowed
McDowell was later granted a restraining order against Markwell. That order is set to be reviewed in Clallam County District Court in Forks on Thursday. In another case, District Court Judge John Doherty heard arguments from the attorney of two other protesters that Markwell should pay them $10,000 and attorney costs, claiming a no-contact order that was granted to Markwell violated the women’s First
Amendment right to protest. Attorney Adam Karp of Bellingham argued that Markwell sought Markwell a no-contact order against Tamira Thayne and Robin Budin to prevent them from protesting outside the sanctuary, citing the Washington Act Limiting Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation statute. Thayne and Budin traveled to Forks from Virginia, where they run the Dogs Deserve Better shelter, in an effort to retrieve a dog named Sonny that their organization placed with Markwell. The pair protested Dec. 3-14. Markwell was granted a restraining order against both Thayne and Budin. Thayne was arrested for violating it. The restraining order was dismissed when Markwell failed to appear Dec. 12. Charges were dropped later. Doherty heard Karp’s argument Thursday but issued no decision.
any “physical fights,” he said. “The stress level of everyone involved in trying to get the dogs off the truck, and just different personalities and opinions and passions, colliding passions, brought the tension level up.” Misseri said he did not know where Markwell was going.

The Dungeness herd of Roosevelt elk makes an urban stop in Sequim for breakfast last February in a field north of the Holiday Inn Express on East Washington Street.
Seasonal hunters cull 13 elk from Sequim’s herd BY JOE SMILLIE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
SEQUIM –– Hunters with special permits have killed 13 of Sequim’s trademark Roosevelt elk, focusing largely on harvesting antlered bulls. Although the hunting season doesn’t officially end until March, Sgt. Eric Anderson of the state Department of Fish and Wildlife said chances are slim more hunting permits will be issued. “There could be one or two more issued if something were to come up, like they were destroying more crops,” Anderson said Thursday. “But this is probably it.” With the harvest of six bulls, six “spikes” (juvenile males) and one cow, the herd now numbers 40, with 27 cows and calves in the Dungeness Valley and 13 bulls in the foothills south of the city off Palo Alto Road. Four of the elk were donated to food programs for tribal elders. Two went to Jamestown S’Klallam and one each to the Lower Elwha and Port Gamble tribes, Anderson said. The rest of the meat was kept by the hunters. The herd swelled to more than 100 elk about 10 years ago. The high number of animals began to wipe out crops in the valley. In response, wildlife officials began issuing permits to reduce the herd’s numbers. “Our goal is around 25,” Anderson said. “That leaves us with plenty of animals to keep the herd going, but a smaller herd means we don’t have as much damage as has been happening.”
Repopulation possible? PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
SEQUIM — Tim Cullinan, a wildlife biologist who monitors the Sequim elk herd for the Point No Point Treaty Council, is working to repopulate the mountains south of Sequim. He said he has applied for a grant from the U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife to study the possibility of importing elk to start a second herd in the mountains. Logging has opened up canopies in the forests, which has allowed forage crops that would support elk to flourish. “There’s a lot of habitat up in the foothills that looks like elk country, but there’s no elk there,” he said. Cullinan estimated he would have a 1-in-3 chance of getting the grant. He expects to get word in February. The cows and calves for the past 10 to 15 years have been spending most of the year in the farm fields north of Sequim. Tim Cullinan, a wildlife biologist who monitors the herd for the Point No Point Treaty Council, said development of the herd’s natural summer home on areas like Bell Hill pushed the elk down into the valley. There, the cows and calves found lush fields of corn, alfalfa and other agricultural crops, and haven’t migrated back into the mountains since. “They’ve just been so isolated down here for so long that they’re just not going out and exploring new areas,” Cullinan said. “They’ve got it good. “That’s just the nature of elk. As long as they’re wellfed and they’re safe from predators, they’ve got no reason to move.” But elk eating crop fields in the valley has taken its
toll on area farmers, who have reported tens of thousands of dollars in crops lost to the elk. Anderson said the damage increases when the bulls come down from the hills to mate. “When the bulls come down and start doing the rutting, they will do way more damage,” Anderson said. “They will fight; they will roll around and take out huge swaths of corns.” Past hunts have focused on removing cows to reduce reproduction. In October, when the current hunting season opened, Cullinan said, the herd had 17 adult females and 22 bulls with another eight or nine “spikes.” “For a population the size of 15 or 16 females, you only really need about two bulls,” he said. Too many bulls leads to more crop damage as they fight more for supremacy
and eat more to replace energy lost in those fights, Cullinan said. “It’s like a 24/7 job to respond to all those challenges from the other males and fight off the young ones,” he said.
Leave the cows
The couple has a 19-year-old daughter, Elizabeth. Dennison also has a daughter from a previous marriage, Andrea, 25, who is now teaching English in Korea. After the election loss, Dennison ran the Port Townsend Baking Co. for three years before opening a candle manufacturing plant, Coyote Found Candles, in the boatyard. The butcher part came in 2001, when Dennison and partner Ron McElroy purchased a mobile barbecue pit and began appearing at events serving authentic Oklahoma fare. After opening the permanent location in 2006 and McElroy’s retirement the following year, Dennison has continued mobile catering at events such as Concerts on the Dock and the Wooden Boat Festival. Dennison said business in his location off the Port Townsend retail track in an industrial neighborhood has always been better in the summertime because of the proximity of two large hotels and the transient boater population. This changed over the past two winters with the opening of the Pourhouse at 2231 Washington St., which doesn’t have a kitchen but encourages food to be brought in. “My winter business picked up because of them because there is a good synergy between barbecue and beer,” Dennison said. Dennison said he didn’t think he’d be remembered, something that was countered by two customers who were having a meal when he made the statement. “Businesses turn over so rapidly here that I don’t know a lot of the people, and they don’t know me,” he said. “Most of them don’t have any idea that I ever had a candle company or that I was a county commissioner.”
In addition to lessening the number of bulls, Cullinan said the hunt for males leaves the herd with a sustainable population of females. “With 16 or so females and nine or 10 calves, that’s a good-sized herd,” he said. “Because it’s not so big that it’s going to wipe out crops, but it’s also got that margin of safety that if a disease comes in or something else happens, it’s not going to wipe out the herd.” The antlerless elk in the valley also have extended life spans because of their new home, Cullinan said. Wild elk typically live about 10 years, while those in captivity can live to be 20 years old. “Down in the valley, they’re getting a rich diet. They don’t really have any predators,” Cullinan said. “I wouldn’t be surprised if the average age of adult females is getting to be 12 or 13 years old.” In the mid-1990s, elk from the Sequim herd were moved to the Brinnon area to boost the numbers in that herd.

Flights CONTINUED FROM A1 The landing strip was built during World War II when planes were slower and quieter, and the field is now a key training ground for Growlers, Boeing-built jets based at the naval station. The flights are resuming after a moratorium on using the Outlying Landing Field began in May. During the moratorium, the Navy solicited comments about the noise. Meetings to take testimony in preparation of the environmental impact statement, or EIS, took place in Oak Harbor, Coupeville and Anacortes in December, but no meeting was scheduled on the North Olympic Peninsula or at any other location. The comment period ends today, but this deadline won’t be strictly enforced, according to U.S. Fleet Forces Command spokesman Ted Brown.
Comment period Due to the holiday, comments will be accepted throughout next week along with reasons why the comment period should be extended, although Brown said the comment period, which began in September and included two public hearings, “was already quite lengthy.” To comment, visit www. whidbeyeis.com. In October, NAS Whidbey Island made a “PDF fillable” form available to the public that improves the base’s ability to evaluate and analyze incoming information.

Some Puget Sound region workers set to reach $100,000 pay in Boeing deal BY MIKE BAKER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SEATTLE — Boeing’s contract proposal to machinists in the Puget Sound region would likely increase some workers’ annual base salaries to more than $100,000 in the
coming years. The offer going to a vote this week would slow the growth of machinists’ wages starting in 2016, but workers would still get regular cost-of-living adjustments and an additional 1 percent raise every other year. If historical cost-of-living

It’s time: Address climate change BY W. RON ALLEN FOR MORE THAN 10,000 years, the S’Klallam people have lived and prospered on the land and water of what is now known as the Olympic Peninsula in POINT OF Washington state. VIEW Over time, the S’Klallam people have successfully navigated a variety of changes while maintaining a strong connection to the W. Ron Allen resources, rich lands and waters of our region. Like the rest of our community, the S’Klallam people are still dependent upon the land and water for our survival. And like many, we have been considering how to strengthen resilience to extreme weather developments and prepare for other impacts of climate change. In my opinion, to ensure continued economic growth, promote long-term community vitality and protect sensitive resources and assets, it is essential that we incorporate climate change into our planning efforts and operations. The Jamestown S’Klallam tribe, with the help of Adaptation International, performed a climate change vulnerability study. Through this project, we identified key areas of concern and possible adaptation strategies. Sea-level rise is one of many important concerns. We know that sea levels have been rising and will continue to rise in the future. The tribal community can share anecdotes of the height of king tides over time, but it is important to focus on what is to come. Relative sea-level rise (accounting for vertical, tectonic land movement) may increase by 2 feet before our grade-schoolers are 50 years old. A relative rise of as much as 5 feet may occur by the end of this century. Go to the shore and consider
it: high tide plus 2 to 5 more feet of water. And consider whether a storm event might damage infrastructure nearby. The current shoreline cannot contain the projected level of seawater; it will spill over many shorelines onto the lowest land. As a community, we’ll need to begin thinking about moving people and infrastructure, including roads, out of harm’s way. We must begin the process of discouraging people from building in areas that will be threatened in the future. Much of our tribal commerce and development will depend on the capability of U.S. Highway 101 to function efficiently as our
region’s primary transportation corridor. Our hunting, fishing and gathering is dependent upon healthy and sustainable resources — all of which may be affected by climate change impacts. In our study (available online, with maps, at http://tinyurl. com/PDN-Jamestown-study) we discuss increasing temperatures, changing precipitation patterns, ocean acidification, forest habitat changes and human health. The enormity of the issue feels overwhelming. Yet, the S’Klallam culture promotes self-sufficiency and leadership, so we must do what we can. Our greatest barrier to
Peninsula Voices The free market Obama’s and Democrats’ incessant demagogic attacks upon capitalism’s rich undermine our nation’s moral fiber and economy. Free-market capitalists (not crony capitalism) enable humans to achieve their greatest potential and provide the world’s highest living standards, thereby improving
lives of their fellowman. Free-market capitalists succeed only by satisfying the wants of others. The rich don’t become wealthy at the poor’s expense. Primarily, industrializing nations’ expanding product-demand generates the rising wealth of the wealthiest. The Congressional Budget Office found since 1979,
Americans of every income level experienced at least an 18 percent increase in purchasing power, while middle-class Americans’ income grew 35 percent. Compared to a 47 percent world gross domestic product increase from 1000 to 1820, the United States’ GDP multiplied 22 times (2,200 percent) from 1820 to 1998.
success is the failure to plan well. Resiliency has personal meaning to me and is a trait frequently attributed to the Jamestown S’Klallam tribe. It is interesting to see it so frequently used in climatechange-planning jargon. Within the climate context, it means the capacity to anticipate, prepare for, respond to and recover from significant multihazard threats with minimum damage to social well-being, the economy and the environment. Let’s anticipate and prepare for the changes. The Jamestown S’Klallam tribe wants the shoreline communities of Clallam County to benefit from a planning horizon
of at least 50 years, if not a hundred. With that perspective in mind, one action we can take right now is to incorporate sealevel rise and storm surge predictions into the Shoreline Master Program currently underway. I urge us to look ahead and be observant of trends and developments. Let’s not move forward in denial. Let’s plan and act responsibly.

Did wealth redistribution schemes or capitalism generate this advance? In 1952, South and North Korea produced equivalent GDPs. South Korea, now the world’s 30th richest and 37th freest country, produces a GPD 16 times greater than the world’s least free, starving masses of North Korea.
The freest live 20 years longer than the least free. Using the Economic Freedom Index, the world’s freest nations’ average income is 18 times that of least free nations’ citizens. The poorest (10 percent) in the freest nations attain approximately 600 percent greater income than the poorest (10 percent) in least free nations.
Democrats’ wealth redistribution destroys incentive and steals the poor’s self-worth and independence but proves impotent against poverty. Increased liberty and protection of free-market capitalism manifests the moral, time-tested solution for poverty. Susan Shotthafer, Port Angeles
Study: Vitamin E fights Alzheimer’s RESEARCHERS SAY VITAMIN E might slow the progression of mild-to-moderate Alzheimer’s disease — the first time any treatment has been shown to alter the course of dementia at that stage. In a study of more than 600 older veterans, high doses of the vitamin delayed the decline in daily living skills, such as making meals, getting dressed and holding a conversation, by about six months over a two-year period. The benefit was equivalent to keeping one major skill that otherwise would have been lost, such as being able to bathe with-
out help. For some people, that could mean living independently rather than needing a nursing home. Vitamin E did not preserve thinking abilities, though, and it did no good for patients who took it with another Alzheimer’s medication. But those taking vitamin E alone required less help from caregivers — about two fewer hours each day than some others in the study. “It’s not a miracle or, obviously, a cure,” said study leader Dr. Maurice Dysken of the Minneapolis VA Health Care System.

“The best we can do at this point is slow down the rate of progression.” The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs sponsored the study, published this week by the Journal of the American Medical Association. No one should rush out and buy vitamin E, several doctors warned. It failed to prevent healthy people from developing dementia or to help those with mild impairment (“pre-Alzheimer’s”) in other studies, and one suggested it might even be harmful. Still, many experts cheered the new results after so many
recent flops of once-promising drugs. “This is truly a breakthrough paper and constitutes what we have been working toward for nearly three decades — the first truly disease-modifying intervention for Alzheimer’s,” said Dr. Sam Gandy of Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York. “I am very enthusiastic about the results.” About 35 million people worldwide have dementia, and Alzheimer’s is the most common type. In the U.S., about 5 million have Alzheimer’s. There is no cure and current medicines just

Antioxidants help protect cells from damage that can contribute to other diseases, says the federal Office on Dietary Supplements. Many foods contain vitamin E, such as nuts, seeds, grains, leafy greens and vegetable oils. There are many forms, and the study tested a synthetic version of one — alpha-tocopherol — at a pharmaceutical grade and strength, 2,000 international units a day. The Associated Press

Botched procedure prompts fight for life NEW YEAR’S DAY should be a time of fresh beginnings and forward motion. But for the family of Michelle 13-year-old Jahi McMath, Malkin the holiday season has been suspended in a cloud of unfathomable pain and suffering: A routine tonsillectomy gone wrong. A beautiful child declared “brain dead.” Lawyers, TV cameras, tears. The McMaths are fighting for life. On Monday, they won a court order that prevents Children’s Hospital of Oakland from pulling the plug on Jahi until Jan. 7. Her relatives have been attacked as “publicity hounds” for doing everything possible to raise awareness about the young girl’s tragic case. They’ve been criticized as troublemakers for challenging powerful hospital officials. They’ve been labeled “selfish” and ignorant because they are praying for a miracle. Why, many observers ask, don’t they just “accept reality” and let go? As the mother of a 13-year-old girl, I would have done everything Jahi’s mom has done to this point. Everything. Here’s reality: Children’s Hospital faces serious malpractice questions about its care of Jahi. Hospital execs have a glaring conflict of interest in wielding power over her life support. According to relatives, medical officials callously referred to Jahi as “dead, dead, dead” and dismissed the child as a “body.” The McMath family refused to be rushed or pushed around. They demanded respect for their loved one. I say more power to them. There are plenty of reasons to question the medical establishment’s handling of catastrophic cases involving brain injury and
“brain death.” In 2008, doctors were dead certain that 21-year-old Zack Dunlop was legally deceased after a horrible ATV accident. Tests showed there was no blood flow to his brain. His hospital issued a death notice. Authorities prepared to harvest his organs. But family members were not convinced. A cousin who happened to be a nurse tested Zack’s reflexes on his own one last time as the hospital swooped in. The “brain dead” “body” responded. Forty-eight days later, the supposedly impossible happened: “Brain dead” Zack Dunlop walked out of the hospital and lived to tell about his miraculous recovery on the Today Show. The immense pressure Jahi’s family faces to give up and give in reminded me of another child written off by medical and government officials: Haleigh Poutre. She’s the miracle child who was nearly beaten to death by her barbaric stepfather. Hooked to a ventilator in a comatose state, she was then nearly condemned to death by Massachusetts medical experts and the state’s criminally negligent child welfare bureaucracy, which hastily declared her to be in a hopeless vegetative state and wanted to pull the plug on her life. The “experts” were wrong. Haleigh breathed on her own; a caring team of therapists nursed her back to health. Soon, she was brushing her hair and feeding herself. She lived to testify against her abusive stepfather, now behind bars. Her survival is a stark warning against blind, yielding trust in Big Nanny and Big Medicine. We don’t know what God has planned for Jahi. But I do know this: America has become a throwaway culture where everything and everyone — from utensils to diapers to cameras to babies — is disposable. Elites sneer at the sanctity of life. The Terri Schiavo case brought out the worst, most dehumanizing impulses of
American medical ethics debates. And from the attacks I’ve seen on the McMath family, little has changed. Schiavo’s brother, Bobby, knows exactly how it feels to battle the culture of death and medical expediency. His group, Terri’s Network, and other prolife organizations are trying to help with Jahi’s transfer to a long-term care facility. In the meantime, Jahi’s plight serves as a teachable moment for those with ears, eyes and hearts open. This is a gift. “Families and individuals must make themselves aware of what so-called ‘brain death’ is and what it is not,” Schindler advises. “Additionally, families and individuals must educate themselves regarding their rights as patients, the advance documentation that must be completed prior to any medical procedure as well as how to ensure best any patient’s rights.” Jahi’s story should also prompt family discussions about living wills, durable powers of attorney, “do not resuscitate” orders, revocable trusts and advance directives. It’s never too early to broach these uncomfortable matters of life and death. I want to thank Naila Winkfield and the McMath family for not “letting go” so easily. Their plight is every parent’s worst nightmare. Their fight reaches beyond ideology, race, and class. The united front of the family and the public testaments of their faith in God are gifts. The Instagram image of Naila clasping her daughter’s hand at her hospital bedside — the hope, the desperation, the abiding love — is universal. At the start of 2014, the greatest gift of Jahi is her transcendent reminder that all life is precious. Let it not be taken for granted.

SEATTLE — For $13, you can play pinball until your arms fall off at Seattle’s working pinball museum. The two-story storefront in Seattle’s International District is filled with games from every era from the 1960s to today. The museum, which houses about 50 or so machines, started in 2010 as one couple’s obsession and grew to be something they wanted to share with others, or as Cindy Martin puts it: a good solution when they ran out of space in their garage. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS (3)
Josh Saitelbach plays pinball on a 1998 Godzilla machine as he visits the Seattle Pinball Museum last month. The museum allows visitors who pay an admission fee to play unlimited rounds on the machines. Below, an information card from the 1994 The Who’s Tommy pinball machine is shown near the giant pinball that sits on top of the machine’s cabinet.
‘Incurable disease’ “Any serious collector will tell you collecting these machines is an incurable disease,” said Charlie Martin, her husband and business partner. They keep the equipment fixed up — with some help from other collectors — offer brief historical information and “fun” ratings on small cards above
the games and sell snacks, beer and soda to visitors from around the world. The Seattle museum is one of a handful around the country celebrating a pastime that seems to be in the midst of revival. In addition to the look back at pinball through the ages, the 1,900-square-foot space also features a
glimpse of the future. In December, four one-of-akind artist-made machines were on display and — of course — were playable. The Martins own dozens more pinball machines and constantly move machines in and out. The oldest machine in the building was made in 1963, but they have a few from the 1930s they keep at home.
State-of-the-art The Martins continue to buy the newest pinball machines on the commercial market and just installed a state-of-the-art Star Trek game. Many of their machines are limited-edition models, but games enthusiasts are also likely to find a favorite machine from their youth. The museum, which isn’t a nonprofit, averages about 15,000 visitors a year. It isn’t a profitable operation,

although Charlie Martin said they’re “holding steady.” Both Charlie and Cindy Martin also continue to work full-time jobs. It’s smaller and less well-known than the Pinball Hall of Fame in Las Vegas or the Pacific Pinball Museum in Alameda, Calif., but Charlie Martin said they’re happy staying small. “We’re very comfortable with where we’re at right now,” he said. “We don’t want a mob scene.” A couple from the Seattle area spending a day holiday shopping in Seattle
and acting like tourists made a stop at the museum recently. “This was the No. 1 thing we wanted to do,” said Lisa Nordeen of Kirkland. She and her husband, John, spent two hours at the museum, as long as their parking meter allowed and until they started thinking about lunch. Richard Dyer, a University of Washington law student from Chicago, brought out-of-town visitors to the museum. “It’s very Seattle to me,” Dyer said.

Recycling gets trees out of landfill
PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
THE PARTIES ARE over, visiting family members have gone home, and soon it will be time to take down lights and decorations — and answer the annual question: What does one do with the Christmas tree? Recycle it, suggests Helen Freilich, city of Port Angeles waste reduction specialist. “The most efficient and environmentally sensitive way to dispose of live Christmas trees is to recycle them,” she said. Curbside pickup will be provided in the cities of Port Angeles and Port Townsend next week. Sequim residents can schedule tree pickup with Boy Scout Troop 1491. Troop members will pick up Christmas trees for recycling or disposal for a donation today and Saturday only. KEITH THORPE/PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Boy Scouts fundraiser The Scouts will take trees to Lazy J Tree Farm, 225 Gehrke Road near Port Angeles, for recycling. Lazy J also will accept trees from individuals, said owner Steve Johnson. “I’ll take any kind of Christmas tree back for free whether I sold them or not,” Johnson said. Those in Port Townsend or in unincorporated areas of East Jefferson County can take trees to Port Townsend’s Biosolids Composting Facility at the Jefferson County Waste Management Facility at 325 County Landfill Road, off Jacob Miller Road, for a

Christmas trees will not be accepted at the Blue Mountain Transfer Station between Port Angeles and Sequim. The station at 1469 Blue Mountain Road will be open for recycling from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays only beginning this Saturday — but it does not accept yard waste, Freilich said.
“It will be open Saturday for traditional recycling only,” she said. The station had been closed since a Nov. 10 fire. No date has been set for a full reopening. Here are details of recycling opportunities for live Christmas trees:
Port Angeles Curbside pickup within the city begins Monday and extends through Friday. Trees must be cut into 4-foot lengths; bundled; with no tinsel,
flock or ornaments; and put out on the regular garbage collection day. It is not required to be a yard waste subscriber to get this oncea-year free service. “Customers who are not yard waste subscribers but want their tree picked up need to call Waste Connections at 360-452-7278,” Freilich said. “That way, they can be sure it will be collected.”
Sequim Troop 1491 Scouts, who will
pick up trees today and Saturday only, will accept donations that will go toward such troop activities as summer camp and a river rafting trip, said Peter Craig, scoutmaster. Suggested donation is about $10, said Michael Thill, executive chairman. “We’ve had some very generous people give more,” he said. As of New Year’s Eve, 40 pickups had been scheduled, Thill said, and the troop can handle as many as needed. TURN
Prize-winning fiddler to play at Other Black Diamond contra dance area events BY DIANE URBANI
PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — The Black Diamond Fiddle Club — including alumna Erin Hennessey — will reconvene for a contra dance this Saturday night. Dancers of all levels are invited to join in. Admission to the community dance at the Black Diamond Community Hall, 1942 Black Diamond Road, is a suggested $7 donation for Hennessey adults or $3 for those 17 and younger. However, no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Hennessey, winner of multiple classical- and fiddle-music competitions while growing up in Port Angeles, is now a first-year student at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music in Ohio. Oberlin, founded in 1865, is the nation’s oldest continuously operating conservatory. Hennessey is on winter break, having started college there last fall. She had an auspicious first few months of school, making music with noted musicians Chris Thile, Gabe Witcher and Noam Pikelny, aka the Punch Brothers, who recently stopped by for a jam session with Oberlin students.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Jupiter at its best on Sunday evening PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
of winter. That night, it will follow Jupiter across the sky.
Jupiter, the largest planet in the solar system, shines like a beacon Sunday. At a point astronomers call opposition, it will rise opposite in the sky from the setting sun and be at its biggest and brightest all night for North Olympic Peninsula residents. Unless there are huge cloud banks Sunday, it can’t be missed. Jupiter will rise in the east soon after sunset and ride high in the southern sky by midnight in Gemini, one of the bright winter constellations now well up in the east and southeast by midevening. In addition to outshining everything around it, the giant planet also stands out due to its yellowish color. After the winter stars have risen, you can compare Jupiter’s color to that of Betelgeuse, a huge red star at Orion’s northeastern shoulder, and to the white radiance of Sirius, the brightest star in the night sky, just southeast of Orion.
Venus setting Once Venus sets in the early evening later this month, Jupiter will be the brightest starlike object of the night. Jupiter’s closest approach to Earth comes the day before opposition. On Saturday, it will be just 390 million miles from us, the closest between Earth and Jupiter until 2020. Jupiter comes into opposition about every 13 months. Opposition occurs when Earth flies between the sun and Jupiter. As viewed from Earth, Jupiter will be directly opposite the sun.
Solar activity The New Year began with a burst of solar activity. Active sunspot AR1936 is crackling with strong M-class solar flares, including an M9.9 event Wednesday that stopped just short of becoming a powerful X-flare. Also on New Year’s Day, another large sunspot emerged over the sun’s eastern limb: AR1944 appears set to add its own contribution to the fusillade of explosions. X-rays and UV radiation emitted by solar flares can disrupt long-range radio communications and radar, and cause bursts of Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights). Visit www.spaceweather.com for updates and more information.
Jupiter will be very visible in the constellation Gemini on Sunday.
Starwatch It takes just under 12 Earth years for Jupiter to orbit the sun. If you’re out admiring Jupiter and the winter stars, take a look at Procyon, the brightest star in Canis Minor, between Gemini and Sirius. Procyon is the eighth-brightest star in the night sky, thanks largely to being only 11.5 lightyears away. Sirius, just 8.6 light-years away, also ranks as one of the sun’s neighbors. These two stars, along with Betelgeuse, are sometimes called the Winter Triangle. Say goodbye to Venus as an evening star. It is now very low in the southwestern sky at twilight.
On the 11th, Venus will be only about 25 million miles away and will begin its official passage into the morning sky. Venus will establish itself as a morning star in the southeast by the end of the month. Also in the morning sky, look for Mars high in the south at dawn, just above the bright star Spica in the constellation of Virgo. A waning moon visits Spica on the 23rd, and as it continues its drop toward the sun’s foreglow, it brushes close by Saturn on the 25th.
Moon and meteors The first meteor shower of the year, the Quadrantids, are in the skies above us. From 60 to 120 shooting stars per hour are predicted for early Saturday morning when viewed
from a dark location such as the turn-outs on the road to Hurricane Ridge. They will appear to radiate out from the north-northeast sky, just off the Big Dipper’s handle. Best chance to see them: from shortly after midnight to an hour or so before dawn. The Quadrantids will continue through the 12th but will rapidly taper off after Saturday. Earth reaches perihelion, the closest point to the sun in its orbit, on Saturday. But at 91.4 million miles from the sun, that’s still not nearly close enough to dispel any of winter’s chill. January’s full moon arrives at 8:52 p.m. on the 15th. Native American tribes called this the wolf moon, for the hungry howling of the packs in the depth
Spaceflight anniversary The Space Age began Oct. 4, 1957, when the Soviet Union launched Sputnik into orbit. Stunned, the U.S. raced to catch up. After a spectacular failure in December, when a Vanguard rocket exploded on the launch pad, the U.S. succeeded on the last day of January 1958, when Explorer I attained orbit. Coincidentally, Sputnik burned up Jan. 4, 1958, as it fell from orbit upon re-entering Earth’s atmosphere. It had traveled about 37 million miles during its three months in orbit.

History Tales PORT ANGELES — Larry Lang, a retired National Park Service ranger, will talk about the Hudson’s Bay Co. schooner Cadboro and its connection to Clallam County at 2:30 p.m. Sunday. The free presentation, which is part of the Clallam County Historical Society’s History Tales lecture series, will be at First United Methodist Church, 110 E.
Tired of spending money on batteries?
Seventh St. Parking and entry to the church’s social hall are on Laurel Street. Lang will discuss the Cadboro’s possible involvement in the destruction by cannon fire of the native village at New Dungeness in 1828. The schooner wrecked on the shore 10 miles from there in 1862. Several of the cannons from the wreck were salvaged decades later, only to be lost to history. Last June, one of the cannons came to light. Proving the origin of the cannon and the Cadboro’s involvement in Clallam County are the subjects of this presentation.

Are the steelhead going to show up?
Blackmouth a little better Anglers have found more success on the saltwater recently, but blackmouth fishing is nowhere near hot. “We’ve had some really good water days,” Aunspach said. This week, Aunspach said the fishery has been hampered by morning incoming tides — they are good for fishing near the mouth of a river, but not so much for saltwater fishing — but the tides should switch by the end of the week. Here is the final Port Angeles Salmon Club monthly derby results for December: ■ Winner: Lyle Newell with an 11-pound, 3-ounce blackmouth. ■ Second: Kurt Madison, 10.13 pounds. ■ Third: Nick Eshom, 10.08 pounds. ■ Fourth: George McDonald, 9.12 points.
Sequim, 4 others will try to dethrone Riders PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles Roughriders will look to defend its title at the ninth annual Olympic Shootout wrestling tournament, or Battle for the Axe, Saturday at Port Angeles High School. The wrestling will start at 10 a.m. with six teams “battling for the axe” in a dualmeet tournament format. Each team will wrestle each of the others and will therefore wrestle a total of five duals. Awards will go to the individual most outstanding wrestler and the top two teams
with the champion claiming the axe for the next year, as the host Riders have done for the last three years. Class 2A and 3A will be represented as the following teams are set to battle it out: Port Angeles (2A), Sequim (2A), Bremerton (2A) and North Mason (2A) from the Olympic League, along with White River (2A) and Mount Tahoma (3A). There also will be a JV round-robin tournament that will run on a fourth mat so that all wrestlers will get a chance to compete in the exciting setting. This year’s Battle for the Axe should be a quite competitive with the quality of the teams and the many return-

Arizona freshman Aaron Gordon (11) has led the Wildcats to a No. 1 ranking.
After a strong run in the mid2000s, the Pac-12 has been a “power” men’s basketball conference in name only. Things got so bad that when Washington won the conference in 2012 with a 14-4 record, the Huskies were left out of the NCAA tournament, indicating a level of national respect on par with the Southland Conference or Patriot League. But the Pac-12 is back, with No. 1 Arizona leading the charge. The Wildcats have borne the conference’s standard in November and December, heading a group of teams that have shown that the West Coast is once again a college hoops destination. “The depth of the conference has never been better since I’ve been the head coach at Arizona,” coach Sean Miller said. “I just feel like every game
that you play is going to be a real test. “It’s going to be difficult to win any game on the road.” Jabari Parker of No. 7 Duke may be able to enter an NBA starting lineup and not look out of place, but he couldn’t beat Arizona. Nor could Michigan, UNLV or any other team that tried.
‘Beating each other up’ “They’ve put themselves in a position where once conference play begins and the schools are beating each other up a little bit, as long as the right schools are beating each other up, they come out of conference play in good shape,” said Ernie Kent, who coached at Oregon and is a Pac-12 Network analyst. It’s easy to see why the conference went from the forefront of the national conscious to an afterthought at best. TURN
HOPE THAT THE hatchery steelhead will soon make a mighty winter run is dwindling. “The longer it goes, you start to Lee wonder if [the run] will come,” Horton Brian Menkal of Brian’s Sporting Goods and More (360-683-1950) in Sequim said. Bob Gooding of Olympic Sporting Goods (360-374-6330) in Forks is a bit more definitive in his pessimism. “If they do [make their run], it’s going to be a miracle,” Gooding said. “It has been pitiful.” It appeared the only thing holding the steelhead back was lessthan-ideal water conditions. At this point, though, it appears there is more to it. “It hasn’t been very wet,” Gooding said. “And the rivers are down. But there is enough water for the fish to come.” Gooding said there has been a small increase in success, but nothing remarkable. Bob Aunspach of Swain’s General Store (360-452-2357) in Port Angeles went fishing on the West End earlier this week, and he and his fishing partner both caught a fish. “There are fish, but you gotta work hard,” Aunspach said. Aunspach said the lower Hoh River has been the most consistent river recently, in part because the water holds its color even in low conditions. He added that fishing during incoming tides is best because they bring the fish up into the river. Both Gooding and Menkal said they couldn’t recall the last time the steelhead’s winter run was this late. “It’s strange . . . it’s weird,” Menkal said, “that’s all I can say right now.” Gooding already has an eye on the native steelhead run, which opens to fishing Feb. 16. “I hope the native [steelhead] fishing is better,” he said. Of course, one major difference between native steelhead and hatchery steelhead, is that anglers can keep three hatchery steelies per day and only one native steelhead per year. Another major difference, and an important one for those who like stay on Johnny Law’s good side, is the hatchery fish have a clipped adipose fin near the tail and a healed scar where the fin was.

Bears sign QB Jay Cutler to a 7-year contract BY GENE CHAMBERLAIN THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
LAKE FOREST, Ill. — If the Bears make changes this offseason, it will not be at quarterback. Chicago signed Jay Cutler to a seven-year contract Thursday, ending speculation they might make a change after five seasons of good and bad from their talented signal-caller. Cutler clearly thrived under first-year coach Marc Trestman and now has some of the best complements on offense he’s had
since arriving in Chicago in 2009. “It’s not always been easy,” Cutler said. “There’s been some ups and downs. There’s been some bad years there’s been some good years. I think it makes me appreciate the moment I’m in even more, with the offensive weapons we have, with the type of leadership we have from the front office, with the type of coaching staff we have with the play calling and our (offensive) install. It makes me happy I’m here.” The Bears also signed corner-
back Tim Jennings, who has led the team in interceptions in each of the past two seasons, and guard Matt Slauson to four-year deals. Like Cutler, both players were scheduled to become free agents. General manager Phil Emery said the team and Cutler’s agent, Bus Cook, completed contract discussions three days after the season ended Sunday with a 33-28 loss to the Green Bay Packers in a game that decided the NFC North title. Terms were not disclosed, but the deal for the 30-year-old
Cutler is reportedly worth nearly $18 million per year over the first three years and includes at least $50 million guaranteed. “I think whenever you have two groups who want to work in the same direction and want the same thing to happen it can happen relatively pretty easily,” Emery said. Cutler produced his careerbest passer rating of 89.2 in 2013, although he played in just 11 games due to ankle and groin injuries.

Getting key players back a must for playoffs BY BARRY WILNER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Sometimes it’s not who’s hot, but who’s healthy that matters in the playoffs. The fact that teams playing in the wild-card round must win an extra game to get to the Super Bowl makes it even more difficult to avoid injuries. Yet those teams have been successful: In seven of the last eight seasons, a Super Bowl qualifier played in the wild-card round. Only 2009 was the exception. Six times in that span, the eventual champion didn’t get a week off. Players returning from injury will be huge in Green Bay and Kansas City. For the Packers, the comebacks of Aaron Rodgers and Randall Cobb for the regular-season finale not only provided a boost to the offense but got Green Bay into the postseason. Rodgers, back from a broken left collarbone, and Cobb, who was out with a knee injury, combined on a fourth-down, 48-yard touchdown pass in the final
moments at Chicago. That TD gave the Packers the division title. Their reward: last season’s NFC champions, the 49ers, coming to Lambeau Field on Sunday. “Well, myself and Randall are back, that helps. We had a couple good connections on Sunday. It’s doing the stuff we want to do,” Rodgers said. “We want to be an uptempo team. We want to get a lot of plays run. We want to try to wear the defense down a little bit.” The Chiefs, runners-up to Denver in the AFC West, got off to a 9-0 start, but then started getting hurt. Top linebackers Justin Houston and Tamba Hali, tackles Branden Albert and Eric Fisher — the top overall draft choice last year — and receiver Dwayne Bowe were sidelined or hobbled at various times, and Kansas City lost five of its last seven games. “Big-time players want to make big-time plays in big-time games,” Bowe said. “These are the games you have to show up.”
NFL Saturday Chiefs (11-5) at Colts (11-5) The injury list might be shorter for the Chiefs, who lost to Indianapolis in Kansas City two weeks ago. But the effectiveness of the returning players is in question, especially playmaking linebacker Houston. He missed the final five games with a dislocated right elbow and will wear a brace against Indianapolis. “The first two days it took some time to get used to. After that, it was OK,” Houston said. Indy is relatively healthy. The Colts won their last three games by a combined 78-20 and committed the fewest turnovers (14) and fewest penalties (66) in the NFL.
Saints (11-5) at Eagles (10-6) The one wild-card game where injuries are rela-
tively a nonfactor. Unless you count the Saints’ damaged pride about their inability to win on the road. They went 8-0 at home but have been mediocre away from the Superdome, dropping their last three. They have never won a road playoff game. Still, they feel their experience in the postseason — many of the current Saints won the 2009 championship — will provide an edge. “We have been through a lot together,” Drew Brees said. “We know the expectation level. We know the preparation. I think there is a level of pride that comes along with that — and accountability.” Philly is fully invested in first-year coach Chip Kelly’s up-tempo offense, and an improving defense. After losing 10 in a row at home dating to last season, the Eagles won their last four, never allowing more than 21 points. Holding New Orleans to so few points would be a good idea. The Eagles can’t wait to try.
“It’s what’s the next challenge and what’s the next opportunity,” Kelly said, “and the great thing about where we are right now is if you win, you get to play again.”
Sunday Chargers (9-7) at Bengals (11-5) The Chargers haven’t lost since Cincinnati beat them in San Diego, taking their final four games to sneak into the final wild card. They have concerns about 1,000-yard rusher Ryan Mathews’ ankle and receiver/punt returner Eddie Royal’s toe. They haven’t been in the playoffs since 2009 and have only six remaining players from that team. Cincinnati, in the playoffs for a franchise-best third straight year, lost its top defensive player, tackle Geno Atkins, in midseason. Current injury worries include most of the offensive line and tight end Tyler Eifert (neck).
The Bengals were 8-0 at home. They haven’t won a playoff game since the 1990 season, tied for the seventhlongest streak in NFL history.
49ers (12-4) at Packers (8-7-1) Getting healthy on offense certainly bolstered the Pack, but the defense has been a sieve and is missing its top player, linebacker Clay Matthews (thumb). San Francisco, by far the healthiest bunch in the wild-card round, also is the most versatile team playing this weekend. “I think our players want to play winning football, no matter what the circumstances,” coach Jim Harbaugh said. “So, regardless of what’s coming forward, it’s not relevant. “I think the most relevant thing is that we want to play, we want to coach and participate in winning football no matter what the circumstances, home or away.”
Texas-sized cloud over title game Mariners sign three BY RALPH D. RUSSO THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
PASADENA, Calif. — A Texas-sized cloud of uncertainty looms over college football’s biggest game of the season. As No. 1 Florida State and No. 2 Auburn prepare in Southern California to meet Monday in the last BCS championship game, the University of Texas is still looking for a new football coach. And until the Longhorns make a hire, just about
every successful coach can be considered a candidate — including Florida State’s Jimbo Fisher and Auburn’s Gus Malzahn. “I’ve been amazed about how quiet this thing has been,” ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit said earlier this week. “Because of that, it leads me to speculate and believe that somebody still involved in coaching, whether it’s the NFL or college, must be one of their primary candidates. “I think the longer this goes on, I think it’s very,
very clear that it’s somebody who’s still coaching. Who that might be, I have no idea.” Some leaks have sprung in the last couple of days, and it appears front-runners are emerging. Published reports out of Texas stated the Longhorns were interested in Fisher, Baylor’s Art Briles, Vanderbilt’s James Franklin and Louisville’s Charlie Strong. Michigan State’s Mark Dantonio has also been mentioned as a coach Texas
athletic director Steve Patterson is looking at. Patterson said he wants the search complete by Wednesday, Jan. 15. “Texas, they’re going to be calling on everybody they possibly can because they’re going to try to get the best coach they possibly can,” Florida State athletic director Stan Wilcox said. “Meanwhile, everybody’s trying to keep their coaches because they all feel that the people that Texas is looking at are the best coaches out there.”

They’re as talBrockman and James ented as anybody else in Harden ascended to the their personnel,” Kent said.
The result is a more competitive conference, one that has acquitted itself well on the national stage. And Pac-12 teams haven’t shied away from competition. “I think playing good competition allows the truth to be revealed more readily in different aspects about your team,” said ASU coach Herb Sendek. Not every team has been successful. The Huskies dropped both attempts to pick up a quality win against UConn and San Diego State, and are suddenly one of only two five-loss teams in the
conference. The other is Washington State, which picked up a pair of losses in the talentfilled Old Spice Classic in Orlando. Those efforts have still benefitted the Pac-12 as a whole, however, which ranks fourth overall in conference RPI. “It makes it hard, but it’s a good hard,” said Beavers coach Craig Robinson. “Because you get more opportunities to get some of those showcase-type wins against ranked competition. “For everybody, the conference is tougher, even the guys at the top.”

NEW YORK — General Mills said some Cheerios made without genetically modified ingredients will start appearing on shelves soon. The company said Thursday that it has been manufacturing its original-flavor Cheerios without GMOs for the past several weeks. It did not specify exactly when those boxes would be on sale. The change does not apply to any other Cheerios flavors such as Apple Cinnamon Cheerios. Original Cheerios boxes will be labeled as “Not Made With Genetically Modified Ingredients.” But the boxes will say that trace amounts of GMO ingredients could be present due to contamination during the manufacturing process, said Mike Siemienas, a company spokesman. Original Cheerios are already made with nonGMO oats, but now the company said it’s also using non-GMO cornstarch and sugar.

Rev in new year; leave past behind IT’S DAY 3 of 2014, and 2013 can only be seen in the rearview mirror. It’s time to move forward. Put it in gear, take your foot off the brake, give it some gas — and go. And if you have enough horsepower, go ahead and spin the tires a little bit just for the fun of it. But wait a second, where are you going? Just going for a drive is fun, and it’s my kind of fun, but it’s also a real good idea to have a destination. I have a suggestion. If you have one of those fancy thingamajigs on your dash that you can punch in the destination and guide you on your journey, punch in the word “heaven.” That’s what the Apostle Paul did. Well, kind of. “Forgetting the past,” he said, “and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us” (Philippians 3:13-14).

DEAR ABBY: I am a 27-year-old mom who has always been overweight. I have tried all sorts of diets and programs, and have lost a few pounds and then gained it all back and more. My boss has offered to pay for me to have weight loss surgery. It is something I have always wanted but could never afford. My boss told me she knows the struggle I have had and the frustration I have experienced. My family is behind me and supports my decision to have it done. My concern is that once others in my office learn it was paid for by the boss, I’ll be treated differently. I’m concerned about possible catty comments. They are gossips, and I hate being the center of attention in situations like that. The truth is bound to come out, so how can I comment on the gift I’ve been given? So Grateful in Texas

Kate Daniels has written of The Rented Violin. The poems in this collection delve into daily life: laundry, crying baby, â€œchipped Whalley bowls of cold cereal.â€? They also peek inside the thoughts of a young woman who is becoming aware that â€œmaking it beautifulâ€? can offer a kind of salvation, added Suzann Bick, spokeswoman for the North

Whalley, winner of the Rona Jaffe Award for poetry, holds a degree from the University of Washington. She lived in Port Angeles while raising her son, Chris, and then enrolled in the Master of Fine Arts program at Warren Wilson College in Asheville, N.C.

After Whalleyâ€™s reading, copies of The Rented Violin will be available for purchase.
