The soil and climate that support the cultivation of berries and vegetables on the North Olympic Peninsula also are suitable for growing marijuana and fulfilling the intent of voter-approved Initiative 502, an agricultural expert said. And the plant can be grown indoors, anyway, though at much greater expense. But will I-502, which in November legalized the possession, production and sale of marijuana, make pot a successful cash crop in Clallam and Jefferson counties, whether grown indoors or outdoors? Owners of at least two Clallam County farms say they won’t even try. And it may be too early to tell how the law will work. The initiative legalized recreational use and possession of up to 1 ounce of cannabis as of Dec. 6. The state Liquor Control Board is

OLYMPIA — A bill sponsored by a 24th Legislative District representative that would have forced county auditors across the state to count and process ballots as late as midnight on Election Day has died in committee after receiving no support from state or county elections officials. State Rep. Kevin Van De Wege, a Sequim Democrat and prime sponsor on the bill, said Friday the proposed legislation garnered no support during a public hearing the day before in a House Government Operations and Elections Committee meeting. “The hearing did not go well,” Van De Wege said. “The bill is dead. It’s not moving forward.” A representative of the state Secretary of State’s Office and the auditors of Grays Harbor and King counties spoke in opposition at the first hearing for HB 1102, which would have required county auditors to count and process ballots until midnight the evening of a general or primary election or until all ballots on hand were counted and processed, whichever came first.

Fire in vacant house investigated PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
SEQUIM — Firefighters were investigating Saturday the cause of a fire that broke out in a vacant house Friday night. The house in the 200 block of South Fifth Avenue sustained smoke and water dam-
age, and the attic was destroyed, but the structure remained intact, said Patrick Young, spokesman for Clallam County Fire District No. 3, adding that firefighters extinguished the blaze in 35 minutes. There were no injuries, he said. The house, which had a

J.J. Abrams at helm of new ‘Star Wars’ IT’S OFFICIAL. THE force is with J.J. Abrams. The Walt Disney Co. issued a statement Friday night confirming reports that had been circulating Abrams for two days that Abrams, Emmy-awardwinning creator of TV’s “Lost” and director of 2009’s “Star Trek” movie, has been pegged to direct the seventh installment of the “Star Wars” franchise. “J.J. is the perfect director to helm this,” said Kathleen Kennedy, the movie’s producer and president of Lucasfilm, which was acquired by Disney last month for $4.06 billion. “Beyond having such great instincts as a filmmaker, he has an intuitive understanding of this franchise. He understands the essence of the ‘Star Wars’ experience,” Kennedy said in the statement.
Now, add “swatting” to the list — a prank that sends police charging to the gates of stars’ homes Cruise on false reports of gunmen, hostages or other crimes in progress. Instead of bad guys, responding officers, police dogs, helicopters and sometimes SWAT teams have found only stunned domestic and security staff unaware of any trouble — because there wasn’t any. The recent hoax 9-1-1 calls to the homes of Tom Cruise, Justin Bieber, Ashton Kutcher, Chris Brown and other stars are leading authorities to eye some 9-1-1 calls with extra suspicion and lawmakers to call for stiffer penalties for the pranksters. “This is a very vexing problem that needs to be fixed at the early stages,” said California State Sen. Celeb ‘swatting’ Ted Lieu, who is proposing Celebrities have long tough consequences, includcontended with the occaing hefty fines, for those sional downsides of stardom caught swatting. — tabloid scandals, stalkers, “If this isn’t resolved, this box office bombs, the will result in a tragic situapaparazzi. tion.”
The movie will have a script from “Toy Story 3” writer Michael Arndt and a 2015 release. Lawrence Kasdan, who wrote “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi” in the original trilogy, will work as a consultant on the new project. Abrams already has headed the reboot of another storied space franchise, “Star Trek,” for rival studio Paramount Pictures. The next installment in that series, “Star Trek: Into Darkness,” is set to hit theaters May 17. But he has long been known as a “Star Wars” devotee. Abrams spoke about the plot of the original “Star Wars” in the lecture series “TED Talks” in March 2007 and reportedly became enamored of “Lost” co-creator Damon Lindelof partly because Lindelof was wearing a “Star Wars” T-shirt when they first met.

DOLOURS PRICE, 61, an unrepentant former member of the Irish Republican Army who went to prison for a 1973 London bombing and who recently shook Northern Ireland’s fragile calm by claiming that her orders had come from Gerry Adams, the Sinn Fein party leader and peace negotiator who denies having ever been in the IRA, died Thursday at her home in a suburb of Dublin. The police in Dublin said the cause was not known. An autopsy was scheduled. Ms. Price, Ms. Price the former in 1972 wife of the Irish actor Stephen Rea, attracted more public attention than she might have expected in recent years. Since 2011, the police in Northern Ireland police have been fighting in the courts for access to audiotaped interviews that Ms. Price gave to an oral history project at Boston College in which she detailed her IRA career. The United States Supreme Court has been asked to hear the case. The police learned of the audiotapes from an interview Ms. Price gave to an Irish newspaper in 2010. She told the paper that her testimony for the college’s “Belfast Project” described kidnappings and executions that she said she helped carry out in 1972 on

orders from Adams. She also asserted on the tapes, she said, that Adams had a role in conceiving the London car bombings and that he ordered her and nine other IRA volunteers, including her sister Marian, to carry them out in 1973. The explosions, at four landmark sites, including the Old Bailey Courthouse, injured 200 people and left one man dead from a heart attack. It was the IRA’s first attack in London. Ms. Price spoke often of the personal toll of her terrorist activities: years of depression, alcohol and drug abuse, and post-traumatic stress disorder. In prison, she staged a 203-day hunger strike in which her jailers force-fed her every day through rubber tubing. Suffering from tuberculosis and other ailments, she was released from prison on humanitarian grounds in 1981 after serving seven years of a life sentence.
_________ BARRY LIND, 74, a leading voice in the futures industry for many years and a fixture at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, has died after being hit
by a car in Southern California, according to coroner’s officials. Mr. Lind was crossing a road in Rancho Mirage when he was struck Wednesday evening, the Riverside County Sheriff-Coroner’s Office said. He died of his injuries early Thursday. Alcohol wasn’t believed to be a factor in the crash. Mr. Lind served five terms on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange’s board of directors. He played a key role in creating the International Monetary Market and was a director of the National Futures Association for 12 years. Mr. Lind was a cofounder of Lind-Waldock & Co., among the first firms to market futures to retail investors, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. That firm was sold in 2000, having expanded from a firm with two full-time employees to more than 1,000 international workers. Most recently, he was a managing partner of investment firm, Silver Young Capital LLC, which he ran with cousin Alan Young.

A3 Briefly: Nation Veteran senator won’t seek sixth term next year CUMMING, Iowa — U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin said Saturday he will not seek a sixth term in 2014, a decision that eases some of the burden the national Republican Party faces in retaking the Senate. Harkin, chairman of an influential Senate committee, announced his decision during an interview with The Associated Press and said Harkin the move could surprise some. But the 73-year-old cited his age — he would be 81 at the end of a sixth term — as a factor in the decision, saying it was time to pass the torch he has held for nearly 30 years, freeing a new generation of Iowa Democrats to seek higher office. Democrats hold a 55-45 advantage in the Senate, requiring Republicans to gain six seats to win back the chamber. But Democrats have more seats to defend in 2014 — 20 compared with only 13 for Republicans.
Ryan’s GOP advice WASHINGTON — Rep. Paul Ryan said Saturday that Republicans need to stick together and pick their fights during President Barack Obama’s second

In a speech to conservatives, the GOP’s 2012 vice-presidential nominee from Wisconsin said Obama would attempt to divide Republicans but urged them to avoid internal squabbles after a second straight presidential loss. “We can’t get rattled. We won’t play the villain in his morality plays. We have to stay united,” Ryan said at the National Review Institute’s weekend conference on the future of conservatism. “We have to show that if given the chance, we can govern. We have better ideas.”

Briefly: World Dozens die in wake of Egypt death rulings PORT SAID, Egypt — Angry relatives and residents rampaged through this port city Saturday in rioting that killed at least 27 people after a judge sentenced nearly two dozen soccer fans to death for involvement in deadly violence after a game last year. The unrest was the latest in a bout of violence that has left 38 people dead in two days, including 11 killed in clashes between police and protesters marking Friday’s second anniversary of the uprising that overthrew longtime leader Hosni Mubarak. President Mohammed Morsi canceled a scheduled trip to Ethiopia on Saturday and instead met for the first time with top generals as part of the newly formed National Defense Council. The violence in Port Said erupted after a judge sentenced 21 people to death in connection with the Feb. 1, 2012, soccer melee that killed 74 fans of the Cairo-based Al-Ahly team. Executions in Egypt are usually carried out by hanging. Die-hard soccer fans from both teams, known as Ultras, hold the police at least partially responsible for the riot, which was the world’s worst soccer violence in 15 years.

WASHINGTON — Thousands of people, many holding signs with names of gun violence victims and messages such as “Ban Assault Weapons Now,” joined a rally for gun control Saturday, marching from the Capitol to the Washington Monument. Leading the crowd were marchers with “We Are Sandy Hook” signs, paying tribute to victims of the December school shooting in Newtown, Conn. Washington Mayor Vincent Gray and other city officials marched alongside them. The crowd stretched for at least two blocks along Constitution Avenue. Participants held signs reading “Gun Control Now,” ‘‘Stop NRA” and “What Would Jesus Pack?” among other messages.

Some Dems may balk at Obama gun controls Capitol Hill debate begins on Wednesday
Americans polled on gun control
BY ERICA WERNER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — As the Senate prepares to begin debating new gun-control measures, some of President Barack Obama’s fellow Democrats are poised to frustrate his efforts to enact the most sweeping limits on weapons in decades. These Democrats from largely rural states with strong gun cultures view Obama’s proposals warily and have not committed to supporting them. The lawmakers’ concerns could stand in the way of strong legislation before a single Republican gets a chance to vote “no.” “There’s a core group of Democratic senators, most but not all from the West, who represent states with a higher-than-average rate of gun ownership but an equally strong desire to feel their kids are safe,” said Mark Glaze, director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns.
Conversations back home “They’re having hard but good conversations with people back home to identify the middleground solutions that respect the Second Amendment but make it harder for dangerous people to get their hands on guns.” All eyes are on these dozen or so Democrats, some of whom face re-election in 2014. That includes Sens. Max Baucus of Montana, Mark Begich of Alaska and Mark Pryor of Arkansas. The Senate Judiciary Committee begins hearings Wednesday. At issue are Obama’s proposals to ban assault weapons, limit ammunition magazines, crack down on trafficking and require
universal background checks. Leading the charge against those ideas is the National Rifle Association. The group wields enormous power to rally public sentiment and is a particular threat to Democrats in pro-gun states who face re-election. The political concerns of Democrats create problems for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., who has his own history with the NRA. The powerful gun lobby endorsed him in previous elections but stayed neutral in his most recent race in 2010. Even before Obama announced the gun proposals this month, Reid told a Nevada PBS station that an assault-weapons ban would have a hard time getting
through Congress. That comment irked Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., author of such a ban. “Clearly it wasn’t helpful,” she said this past week in reintroducing her measure. Its future rests on pressures on individual senators from home. “We’re a Second Amendment state. I support the rights of sportsmen and target shooters and collectors to own firearms. It’s an important part of our culture and tradition,” said Sen. Mark Udall, D-Colo. “But I just hear there’s such grave concern given the experiences we’ve had with Aurora, Columbine . . . people all over Colorado want to prevent these massacres.”

Rolf Heuer, director of the European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN, said he is confident that “towards the middle of the year, we will be there.” The $10 billion Large Hadron Collider on the Swiss-French border near Geneva, which has been creating highenergy collisions of protons to investigate dark matter, antimatter and the creation of the universe, is being put to rest early this year.

Prisoner died from oral cancer PA man serving life sentence for slaying deputy BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
MONROE — A Port Angeles man who was serving a life sentence in prison for killing a Clallam County sheriff’s deputy died of a type of mouth cancer, the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office said. Thomas Martin Roberts, 66, succumbed to an oral metastatic squamous-cell carcinoma at the infirmary of the Roberts Monroe Correctional Complex on Wednesday evening, a representative from the Snohomish C o u n t y m e d i c a l Davis examiner said Friday. The representative said that because of privacy restrictions he could not reveal how long Roberts had the cancer or how it had been treated. Roberts was convicted of first-degree aggravated murder in November 2002 after he shot and killed Clallam County Sheriff’s Deputy Wally Davis in 2000 on the porch of Roberts’ home in northeast Port Angeles. The type of cancer that killed Roberts, the chief risk factors of which are smoking and alcohol use, affects about 30,000 Americans each year, according to the Merck Manual of Diagnosis and Therapy. In the U.S., 3 percent of cancers in men and 2 percent of cancers in women are oral squamous-cell carcinomas, according to the Merck Manual. Davis was survived by his wife, Lisa, who was pregnant at the time and now is living in Republic; a daughter, Jessie, then 15; and two adult sons, Jeff and Joshua.

Alleged burglar reportedly heard voices in head 37-year-old accused of visiting same PA home twice in week BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — The voices of four people speaking inside the head of a Port Angeles man reportedly drove him to visit a west Port Angeles home that he allegedly tried to break into, according to court documents filed in Clallam County Superior Court. The man, 37-year-old Richard Allen Smith, is set to be arraigned on two charges of attempted residential burglary in Clallam County Superior Court on Friday after allegedly trying to break into a home in the 1300 block of South N Street twice in two days last week. Smith remained in the Clallam County jail on $5,000 bail Saturday. Smith allegedly tried to force open the front door of the N Street home once Jan. 21 and once Jan. 22, both in the early morning hours, according to court documents. As Smith approached the porch of the home a

third time at about 2 a.m. Tuesday, Clint Lowery, one of the residents of the home, met Smith with a 12-gauge shotgun at the front door of the home and kept the gun trained on Smith until Port Angeles police officers arrived. Lowery shares the home with his fiancee, their 2-year-old daughter, brother and sister-in-law. After being arrested and read his Miranda rights, Smith told officers that he heard the voices of four people — whom he could identify as real people but who were speaking inside his head, he said — telling him to go to the N Street house, according to the arrest report. In a hearing last week, Clallam County Superior Court Judge Erik Rohrer ordered a mental health assessment for Smith at Peninsula Behavioral Health.

Elk, still near highway, retreat into the woods BY JOE SMILLIE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
SEQUIM –– After three days of milling around in fields off U.S. Highway 101, the Dungeness herd of Roosevelt elk has retreated into the woods for cover, the expert who is tracking them reported Saturday. Tim Cullinan, wildlife coordinator for the Point No Point Treaty Council who has been monitoring the herd of some 28 elk for several years, said they spent daylight hours Friday in the deep brush along Johnson Creek east of Sequim. The dense cover there keeps the herd hidden from people, who Cullinan said often “stress” the 800-pound animals with attempts to get close-up views. “Once they get into the woods, they feel pretty safe,”
Cullinan said. “It’s kind of an inaccessible place, and nobody goes in there to bother them.” Friday’s full moon, and the larger-phase moons of the past several days, Cullinan said, allows the elk to stay in the woods during the day and head out to fields to forage for food under the moonlight. The Clallam County Sheriff ’s Office issued warnings to motorists Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday that the elk were near the highway and to watch for them while driving.
Elk watchers That brought out elk fans, who came to spot the massive beasts in the open. Watchers trying to get closer looks made the nervous beasts edgy, prompting
them to get up from their rest and move away, Cullinan said. “When the food supply is low during the winter like this, the last thing they can afford to do is expend a lot of energy,” he said. Cullinan advised those who want to watch the elk when they are in the open to keep a distance, both for personal safety and to allow the animals to relax. “Winter’s a time that’s already pretty stressful for them,” he said. With forage food limited in the foothills, Cullinan said, the herd discovered an abundance of fertilized, irrigated grazing ground in the farm fields of the Dungeness Valley about 10 years ago. “Prior to that, we almost never saw them north of the
highway,” he said. “Once they got off the hills in the south and found that thick, juicy hay in the valley, it was like they hit the jackpot.” That grazing, however, damages the crops of farmers who see the hay and corn primarily as cash crops. Sgt. Eric Anderson, an enforcement officer with the state Department of Fish and Wildlife, told the Peninsula Daily News earlier this month that hunters shot four elk cows from the herd in an effort to stop them from damaging crops and drive the herd into other areas.

Jefferson commissioners to consider federal lawsuit BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND — Jefferson County commissioners will consider Monday footing the bill for punitive damages if they are awarded against a Jefferson County corrections officer who is named in a federal civil rights lawsuit. The lawsuit filed in December in the U.S. District Court of Western Washington in Tacoma says Christopher L. Dankert was assaulted by another inmate in the Jefferson County jail Dec. 11, 2009, and claims that both Jefferson County and Corrections Officer Bill Wells, employed by the Jefferson County Sheriff ’s Office, acted negligently in regard to the assault. The suit alleges the county and Wells failed to act sufficiently to keep Dankert from harm while he was being held in the jail
and later wrongfully kept Dankert in solitary confinement after he allegedly was assaulted by fellow inmate Giovanni Gartment. Jefferson County’s filed response denies the bulk of the suit’s claims and says any injuries claimed by the plaintiff were the result of the actions of parties over which Wells had no control. County Deputy Prosecuting Attorney David Alvarez has recommended that county commissioners accept responsibility for paying any punitive damages that are awarded against Wells. Alvarez said in his memo to commissioners that Wells “acted properly and within the scope of his duties with respect to the assault on Mr. Dankert. Thus, he is covered by the county’s insurance policy for any nonpunitive claims.” There would be no fiscal impact to the county unless the court awards punitive
damages, “a scenario that is highly unlikely,” Alvarez said. Jefferson County commissioners will consider this issue at their 9 a.m. meeting Monday in the commissioners’ chambers of the Jefferson County Courthouse, 1820 Jefferson St. Dankert was kept in solitary confinement for about two days before medical personnel tended to him, the suit alleges, but he eventually received treatment Dec. 13, 2009, after he was released from jail. The suit, filed by Poulsbo attorney Thomas S. Olmstead, alleges Dankert suffered severe injuries to his face, including a broken eye socket. The lawsuit does not list the specific amount of damages sought. Jefferson County is represented by the Tumwater law firm of Law, Lyman, Daniel, Kamerrer & Bogdanovich.
Missile launcher at buyback THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SEATTLE — A nonfunctional missile launcher was among the weapons that showed up Saturday at a gun buyback event in Seattle. The military weapon was a single-use device that had already been used.
Police said a man who was at the event had bought the surface-to-air missile launcher for $100. It was confiscated by police to determine what it was, and then the nonfunctioning device was returned to him. The gun buyback in a parking lot in downtown
Seattle was scheduled to go from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., but ended early because of the large crowd. Police say that after two hours, more than 160 guns had been turned in and $35,000 in gift cards had been distributed. Other buybacks are planned for later this year.
FREE SPAY & NEUTER
When asked about the lawsuit, Jefferson County Sheriff Tony Hernandez said he couldn’t comment “since our lawyers and their lawyers are now trying to negotiate a settlement.”

Wanted: A few good Clallam heroes Nominations sought for Community Service Award PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Now is the time to nominate your local hero. We are looking for people who make a difference in Clallam County, individuals who have made our communities a better place. Soroptimist International of Port Angeles-Noon Club and the Peninsula Daily News invite nominations for the 2013 Clallam County Community Service Award. The award recognizes the dedication, sacrifice and accomplishments of local people who do extraordinary things for their neighbors, their community or the environment. This is the 34th year for the award, begun by the PDN and now co-sponsored by the Soroptimist noon club. Past recipients of the Community Service Award have organized community efforts to clean up waterways, served as literacy tutors, raised money for the disabled, protected animals, organized food programs for the hungry, aided crime victims and their families, founded a cancer survivor support group, built a playground for special-needs children and were instrumental in the creation of teen activity centers. The award recipients merit both honor and imitation, said John Brewer, PDN publisher and editor. â€œThey are role models for all of us, not only because
theyâ€™ve aspired and dreamed, but because our local heroesâ€™ achievements are within our own reach,â€? Brewer said. â€œThey show us that all of us can be part of something greater than ourselves.â€?
How to nominate â– Nominations should be made using the accompanying coupon and must be returned to the PDN by 5 p.m. Monday, March 4. â– A letter describing the merits and accomplishments of the person being nominated should be submitted with the coupon. â– If possible, the nomination should include supporting documents, such as copies (not originals) of other awards, newspaper articles or letters of support. â– Anyone who lives in Clallam County can be nominated. Recipients of the Community Service Award in the past are not eligible for a 2013 award. But those previously nominated but not selected for a Community Service Award are eligible for renomination. A panel of judges will review the nominations and select one to seven people to receive a Community Service Award at an evening reception in Port Angeles in late April. Questions? Please phone Brewer at
360-417-3500. Or email him at john.brewer@peninsula dailynews.com.
2012 honorees Last year, judges selected seven recipients from 23 nominations made by individuals, clubs, churches, businesses and other organizations.

Can grow anywhere The farming of marijuana could take place anywhere in the state, including the North Olympic Peninsula, said Mikhail Carpenter, another Liquor Control Board spokesman. Laura Lewis, Jefferson Countyâ€™s Washington State University extension agent, agreed. â€œThey call it weed for a reason,â€? she said last week. â€œIt can really grow in almost any environment worldwide. â€œThere would be absolutely no limitation to producing it in Clallam and Jefferson counties.â€?

Clallam farms At least two farmers in Clallam County wonâ€™t be farming marijuana: Lee Norton and Doug Hendrickson of Salt Creek Farm west of Port Angeles, and Nash Huber of Nashâ€™s Organic Produce in Sequim. â€œNot a chance,â€? Huber said Friday. â€œI suspect that when you look at places where itâ€™s grown successfully, they are hot; they are like the Yakima Valley.â€? Huber grows tomatoes indoors, but it costs more than it does outdoors, he said. â€œI would say itâ€™s at least twice as expensive,â€?
Huber said. Salt Creek Farm grows and sells vegetables in a coop-like, community-supported-agriculture program that draws many people to their property, Norton said. â€œWe were sort of thinking maybe it would be nice for a cash crop, but there also has been the issue. I donâ€™t think weâ€™d be comfortable trying to do that until recently itâ€™s been illegal, and it seems like if we start growing pot and people know you are growing pot, we would be afraid of who would come around. â€œIt sort of puts out an attractant. â€œThe farm is very open. â€œThere is a cultural thing that I hope goes away as it becomes legitimate.â€? Lewis said Peninsula weather is much like the infamous marijuana-growing area of Northern California. â€œItâ€™s one of the few plants of a cosmopolitan nature,â€? she added. Hops is a similar crop, and it grows abundantly in the Yakima Valley. Much of the agricultural land in Jefferson County is â€œfairly saturated,â€? Lewis added. â€œThere are better soils in Clallam.â€?
CONTINUED FROM A1 The first firefighters on the scene found an attic fire in the home. Firefighters got into the attic from inside the house just as flames broke through the roof. The fire was contained by 10:15 p.m., Young said.
The owner of the home had not been contacted, Young said early Saturday morning, and it was unclear if the house was insured, he said. No damage estimate was available. About 18 firefighters from the Sequim Fire
Department helped put out the fire. Personnel with the Clallam County Public Utility District and Olympic Ambulance and law enforcement officers from Sequim and the Clallam County Sheriffâ€™s Office were all on scene to provide assistance.
Briefly: State Police shoot, kill robbery suspect
VANCOUVER, Wash. â€” Police officers investigating a series of armed robberies and a home invasion in Vancouver, Wash., came across two armed men and fatally shot one of them. Police said the men, whose identities werenâ€™t released, were â€œrelated to the ongoing investigation,â€? but authorities did not provide additional details. Police and deputies were in the neighborhood at about 11:30 p.m. Friday investigating a shooting during a home invasion from a day earlier. ________ The description of the shooting suspect matched Senior Staff Writer Paul Gottlieb can be reached at 360-452-2345, that of an armed robbery ext. 5060, or at paul.gottlieb@ suspect who police believe peninsuladailynews.com. struck two convenience
stores Friday. A police tip that the suspect was going to attend a concert in Vancouver led police to the music venue Pop Culture, where police saw the two men in question walk outside several times to smoke. When they left at about 11:30 p.m., a SWAT team converged on them, and one of the men was shot. The man who was killed reached for a gun after running away from officers, according to police radio monitored at The Columbian, the newspaper reported. Police spokeswoman Kim Kapp said the officer who fired the shots was from the Vancouver Police Department. The officer, who will be placed on administrative leave per departmental policy, was not identified.
Two teens arrested LACEY â€” Thurston County sheriffâ€™s detectives have arrested two teens in a drive-by shooting that wounded a 15-year-old. The Sheriffâ€™s Office said a 16-year-old believed to be the driver was arrested Friday at a home, and an 18-year-old believed to be the shooter was arrested at River Ridge High School in Lacey. Theyâ€™re facing possible assault and drive-by shooting charges. The Olympian reported that the 15-year-old was one of three people walking Thursday afternoon when the car drove by and a passenger fired six to eight shots. The 15-year-old was hit in the right thigh and treated at a hospital. The shooting was part of a longstanding dispute between two groups. The Associated Press

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Sunday, January 27, 2013 PAGE
Deciding guilt or innocence ONCE A YEAR, I am proud to do my civic duty and take the time to go down to the courthouse to try to get out of jury service. Last week, I was not sucW. Bruce cessful, howCameron ever, even though I informed the judge that I couldn’t serve because I had very important, highly critical stuff to do that I couldn’t precisely identify. A day of jury service is divided into three parts: waiting for lunch, waiting for lunch to end and waiting for the end of the day. There is no better way that I can think of to verify that an hour is made of 60 minutes — and that each minute is made up of an hour. It gets so tedious that when a police officer comes into the waiting area, you half hope you’ll be singled out for pepper spray. Instead, he’ll pull a few dozen prospective jurors and lead you all into the courtroom for voir dire, which is a process in which the prosecution and defense do their best to whittle the large
group down to the 12 dumbest people in the room. Voir dire is a French phrase used by judges and lawyers to mean “we went to law school, soo we understand French and you don’t.” Prospective jurors attempt too answer questions in ways that will persuade the judge they should be excused, somehow avoiding obvious perjury, so all the clever people are released. Which is how I found myself empaneled. nThe questions are pretty stancdard: Have you ever been the victim of a crime? Have you ever been on a jury before? Are you aware that your pants are unzipped? (Jury Tip: Don’t answer “yes” to all three questions.) Many jurors respond to the opportunity to “tell us about yourself” with such a long, self-important explanation that eventually the judge will interrupt and say, “OK, I think we’ve got it.” That’s what happened to me, anyway, which I’m sure irritated the other jurors plenty because I was just getting into “Bruce: The Formative Years, Fourth and Fifth Grade.” They were all glaring at me, disappointed not to hear the full story.
Here’s Tip: H ’ another h Jury J Ti Don’t D ’ burst out laughing, even when the surveillance tape shows the defendant throwing a rock at the store window with such force that it bounces off the glass and bonks him on his head. Apparently, jurors are not supposed to have a sense of humor or ask the judge to run the tape backward for extra giggles. Also frowned upon is for you to whisper “what a moron!” even though there simply is no other way to describe the fact that the guy picked up the rock and did the exact same thing again.
Luckily, the judge’s admonition was that “jurors are to refrain from making comments,” so he apparently blamed all of us equally, which I felt was fair. The third time was a charm for the burglar, who stood to the side and threw the rock in such a way as to punch a perfect hole in the glass, 18 inches in diameter and about 9 feet off the ground, doing his crime spree no good whatsoever. He stood there, patting his head wounds, contemplating his handiwork with a perplexed expression. When his searching gaze brought his face around so that he was looking directly into the

“I think it would help just because people will think twice before coming into a school and doing something stupid. I guess it wouldn’t hurt to try.”
“It seems like it would, but it would also increase fear in children. Parents might even think of taking them out of the public schools. I feel they really don’t need to go to that extent as to have guards.”
“Unfortunately, it might do that. But the idea is counterintuitive to normal society. I can see both sides, though. Really, we just shouldn’t have to go that far and have armed guards in schools.”
“I think it would help. It seems like it’s needed now. Trying to take away all guns wouldn’t work — probably cause more problems. What about the innocent bystanders if the guard uses his weapon?”
“No, I’m not concerned about safety of students here since it’s a small town. After 9/11, we did everything we could to protect ourselves by increasing security and safety, but what do we lose by putting those armed guards in there?”
Peninsula Voices In recent years, approximately 32,000 Americans died from gunshots annually [according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention], about the same number as those who die in traffic accidents. In the past 50 years, more Americans were killed with guns than died in battle in all of our wars. Suicides account for about two-thirds of all firearms deaths, by far the most prevalent method of suicide. When deaths result from occupational, highway or aircraft accidents, we have been quick to react and require changes that improve safety and reduce the hazards.

“I don’t think so. If someone has a gun and wants to shoot up schools, they’ll find a way to get inside and past the guards. The whole idea of having guards in schools is so unfortunate.”
“There are armed guards in banks and for some politicians. The way our world is right now, we need them. If we all had guns, there’d be less problems. But high-powered weapons need to be off the streets.”
“Only if the guns are held by Green Berets and Army Rangers. If we brought them all back from Afghanistan and Iraq and put them in the schools, [the schools] would become a safer place. Anyone with less training doesn’t stand a chance. ”
However, little has been done to reduce firearm deaths, and some voices actually call for increasing the presence of firearms. Perhaps it is time to examine gun deaths as more of a public health issue than a battle over liberties. Much recent concern has been the result of the events at Newtown, Conn., and elsewhere. Assault-type weapons have received attention, although handguns are the most common method of suicides and most murders. The easy availability of firearms is certainly one factor why so many die. There is no other method of killing that can be so easily accessed and so

We decided that we couldn’t convic convict someone of breaking and t i if all he did was break entering some glass, plus his own head.

impulsively employed. I have no doubt that both gun owners and nongun owners are appalled by the deaths resulting from firearms, but we’ve allowed ourselves to be drawn into a battle of “them against us.” Perhaps if we focused on reducing gun deaths, and put aside our preconceptions of how the other guy thinks, we could make some progress in reducing the deaths and the misery they cause. All of us need to persistently remind our leaders that it is way past time to take concrete and positive action to stop the killing. Gary L. Johnson, Port Angeles

Right to defend Hurrah to the man who stopped the would-be burglar with a shotgun [“PA Man Holds Burglar at Bay With Shotgun,” PDN, Jan. 23]. What were that person’s intentions? Items in the household? His fiancee? Their little girl?
Anyone who came back twice had determination, and whatever his motives were, it wasn’t his house. Thankfully, there was still a gun on the premises and someone who had the right to use it. What if there hadn’t been? I shudder to think of what could have happened. Hopefully, the legal system will take care of this guy. I hope this incident is a message to “would-be” burglars. To gun owners: If it’s yours, you have the right to defend it. And if you own a gun, make sure you know how to handle it well, and do it with confidence. TURN

Caught in a rant NO CHARGES WILL be filed against a Vancouver, Wash.-area father who ranted on Facebook that he was hoping for a shooting at the nearby school of an opposing prep basketball team. The Camas Police Department said the 39-yearold has apologized and acknowledged the stupidity of his Tuesday night rant during a game between Camas and Skyview high schools. Although the post was discovered near the end of the basketball game, police were not notified until Wednesday. He reportedly wrote: “Camas fans!!!!! Worst in the league!!!! I hope someone shoots up their school really soon!!!!!!!!!!” Camas Police Sgt. Scot Boyles said the man’s actions were alarming but did not reach the level of criminal action. He said the man has been banned from all Camas and Vancouver school property. The Associated Press

Grant money Hardly a day goes by that I don’t read about more grant-money funding secured for Port Angeles or Clallam County. Shame on you and shame on me for being a part of this. Enough is enough. We can’t even pay back China for the money we’ve borrowed already. The government employees will always borrow and spend as long as we allow it. We need to set an example and quit being such a welfare town. Look around and think about how much money we suck out of the federal budget. A grant for this and a grant for that. I can’t believe the government is still solvent. Oh, wait a minute, it’s not. Oh, well, as long as the government workers keep getting promoted and they don’t feel any adverse effects, then nothing will change. Let’s borrow another $1 million for the airport. What a joke.

Sequim remains in tie for first PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
SILVERDALE — Jayson Brocklesby lit up the scoreboard again with 32 points to spark the Sequim boys basketball team past Klahowya in Olympic League action. The Wolves blasted the Eagles 70-36 on Friday night to remain tied for first with Olympic, which beat North Mason 76-33 on Friday. Both teams have identical 11-1 league and 13-3 overall records. The Wolves surged in the second quarter against the Eagles, outscoring them 26-9 and taking control of the game with a 43-18 lead at halftime. “We really came out in the second quarter playing better offense, and we really knocked them down on defense, too,” Sequim coach Greg Glasser said. The Wolves dished out 20 assists and played well as a team, Glasser added. “We played textbook basketball. It’s good to see that as we head into the postseason.” The Wolves next play their final home game of the season Tuesday night against North Kitsap (7-4, 8-7) and then concludes the season with three road games. The first of those is at archrival Port Angeles (2-11, 3-14) on Thursday night. Against Klahowya, Brocklesby earned his fourth 30-plus points game this year on 14 of 16 shooting from the field, 1 of 2 from 3-point range. He also had seven rebounds and four steals while Rory Kallappa added 10 points and six boards and Gabe Carter earned nine points, nine rebounds, five assists and two blocked shots. Erik Christensen, meanwhile, netted nine points, grabbed eight rebounds and had two blocks.
Riders rout Knights PA remains at the top of league BY LEE HORTON PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — Sometimes a plan just comes together. The Port Angeles Roughriders responded nicely after suffering their first league loss of the season earlier this week by soundly pounding Bremerton 61-41 Friday night in a battle between the Olympic League’s top two teams. For the most part, the game went exactly how the Riders drew it up. “It wasn’t what we were expecting [to win by this much], but it’s what we were hoping for,” Port Angeles coach Michael Poindexter said. The Port Angeles defense dominated from the start, holding the Knights scoreless for more than four minutes to open the game. Later in the first quarter, the offense went on a tear that put the game out of reach. Madison Hinrichs and Macy Walker both nailed 3-pointers in the final minute of the opening quarter to give the Riders a 16-4 advantage. The Riders then scored the first 12 points of the second quarter. By the time Bremerton’s Sawyer Kluge ended the run, Port Angeles led 28-6. At halftime, the score was 33-9. The plan was to slow down Kluge, the league’s top scorer who averages more than 20 points per game, and put the onus on the other Knights to win the game for Bremerton. “We knew we weren’t going to hold her down tonight, but we wore her down,” Poindexter said.

MONTESANO — The Spartans erupted in the second half behind the 28 combined points from Braden Decker and Leo Gonzales in the SWL-Evergreen Division game Friday night. The two teams were tied at 18 points apiece at intermission but the Spartans outscored the Bulldogs 31-10 in the second half to waltz away for the blowout win. Decker led with 16 points while Gonzales had 12 and Nick Gilmore added 10. Forks was short-handed as starting guard Colton Raben missed the game because of the flu but the Spartans came out strong in the second half and never looked back. “Everyone stepped up and did an excellent job,” Forks coach Rick Gooding said. “Nick Gilmore stepped up for us and scored 10 big points while Leo Gonzales also did a great job of scoring and rebounding. “And Mark Jacobson did a great job rebounding for us.” The Spartans did an outstanding job in the second half on defense, holding the Bulldogs to three field goals and four free throws the entire half, five points in each quarter, Gooding said. “Every single player that came in contributed in one way or another. It was just a great team effort.” Forks next plays at Tenino on Tuesday night.

The Bruins had a chance to win with two seconds left, but were unable to make the shot. TURN
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Billionaire Ron Burkle has taken his interest in the Sacramento Kings all the way to the top. Burkle met with NBA Commissioner David Stern for two hours at the league’s New York headquarters this week, NBA spokesman Tim Frank confirmed. No other details of the meeting were given. A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press earlier this week that Burkle, a Southern Californiabased businessman and coowner of the NHL’s Pittsburgh Penguins, was in “serious talks” with 24 Hour Fitness founder Mark Mastrov to collaborate on a counteroffer for the Kings. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because of the private nature of the discussions. The Maloof family already has a signed agreement to sell the Kings to a group that includes hedge-fund manager Chris Hansen and Microsoft Chief Executive Steve Ballmer, who intend to move the franchise to Seattle and restore the SuperSonics name. The NBA Board of Governors must approve any sale. Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson is doing his best to block the move. Johnson, a former NBA AllStar, will get a chance to present a bid to NBA owners that will keep the team in California’s capital city — with a plan to help finance a new downtown arena. TURN

Azarenka defends Aussie Open title BY JOHN PYE THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
MELBOURNE, Australia — Victoria Azarenka had the bulk of the crowd against her. The fireworks were fizzling out, and when she looked over the net she saw Li Na crashing to the court and almost knocking herself out. Considering the cascading criticism she’d encountered after her previous win, Azarenka didn’t need the focus of the Australian Open final to be on another medical timeout. So after defending her title with a 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 victory over the sixth-seeded Li in one of the most unusual finals ever at Melbourne Park, Azarenka understandably dropped her racket and cried tears of relief late Saturday night. She heaved as she sobbed into a towel beside the court, before regaining her composure to collect the trophy. “It isn’t easy, that’s for sure, but I knew what I had to do,” the 23-year-old Belarusian said. “I had to stay calm. I had to stay positive. I just had to deal with the things that came onto me.” There were a lot of those things squeezed into the 2-hour, 40-minute match. Li, who was playing her second Australian Open final in three years, twisted her ankle and tumbled to the court in the second and third sets. The second time was on the point immediately after a 10-minute delay for the Australia Day fireworks — a familiar fixture in downtown Melbourne on Jan. 26, but not usually coinciding

Victoria Azarenka of Belarus hits a forehand return to China’s Li Na during the women’s final at the Australian Open tennis championship in Melbourne, Australia, on Saturday. with a final. Li had been sitting in her chair during the break, while Azarenka jogged and swung her racket around before leaving the court to rub some liniment into her legs to keep warm.
Tumbles to ground The 30-year-old Chinese player had tumbled to the court after twisting her left ankle and had it taped after falling in the fifth game of the second set. Immediately after the fireworks ceased, and with
smoke still in the air, she twisted the ankle again, fell and hit the back of her head on the hard court. The 2011 French Open champion was treated immediately by a tournament doctor and assessed for a concussion in another medical timeout before resuming the match. “I think I was a little bit worried when I was falling,” Li said, in her humorous, self-deprecating fashion. “Because two seconds I couldn’t really see anything. It was totally black.
“So when the physio come, she was like, ‘Focus on my finger.’ I was laughing. I was thinking, ‘This is tennis court, not like hospital.’” Li’s injury was obvious and attracted even more support for her from the 15,000-strong crowd. Azarenka had generated some bad PR by taking a medical timeout after wasting five match points on her own serve in her semifinal win over American teenager Sloane Stephens on Thursday. She came back
after the break and finished off Stephens in the next game, later telling an oncourt interviewer that she “almost did the choke of the year.” She was accused of gamesmanship and manipulating the rules to get time to regain her composure against Stephens, but defended herself by saying she actually was having difficulty breathing because of a rib injury that needed to be fixed. That explanation didn’t convince everybody. So
Cougars hold off Beavers, win 71-68 THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
CORVALLIS, Ore. — Mike Ladd had a careerhigh 23 points and Washington State held off Oregon State down the stretch Saturday afternoon for a 71-68 win. Brock Motum added 20 points and 10 rebounds for the Cougars (11-9, 2-5 Pac12), who won their first road game in five tries this season. Ahmad Starks had 17 points and eight assists for Oregon State (11-9, 1-6). Starks was wide of the basket on a potential gametying 3-pointer from the top of the arc in the closing seconds. That followed Washington State’s DaVonte Lacy’s two missed free throws and Starks’ layup with 7.9 seconds left to cut the Cougars’ advantage to one. OSU’s Royce Woolridge then made two foul shots, setting up Starks’ final attempt. Ladd’s lay-in gave Washington State its first lead of the second half at 37-36 after the Cougars trailed by four at halftime. Oregon State came back with a 7-2 run, as Joe Burton’s layup put the Beavers back up four. Motum later hit his third 3-pointer of the second half to give the Cougars the lead
for good, 54-51. Motum then made two free throws with 8:42 left after a technical foul on Oregon State coach Craig Robinson. That gave Motum 15 points in the second half and Washington State a five-point lead. D.J. Shelton added a 3-pointer with 6:42 left to make it an 8-0 Cougars run. Oregon State closed within 63-60 on a deep 2-pointer by Starks with 3:57 left. The Beavers got within two twice, the last time at 66-64 on Devon Collier’s lay-in with 1:24 remaining. Woolridge scored the last seven points for the Cougars, including a free throw to make it 69-64 with 51 seconds left. Washington State had a 39-27 rebounding edge, including 10 from D.J. Shelton. The Cougars shot 25 of 56 overall, while Oregon State was 26 of 55. Ladd hit from outside to put Washington State up 11-7, the Cougars’ biggest lead of the first half. Oregon State answered with an 8-0 run — including two Starks 3-pointers — to go up by four. Ladd later hit a layup with 4:24 remaining to reach 17 points for the half THE ASSOCIATED PRESS and cut the Beavers’ lead to 23-21.

when she walked onto Rod Laver Arena on Saturday, there were some people who booed, and others who heckled her or mimicked the distinctive hooting sound she makes when she hits the ball. “Unfortunately, you have to go through some rough patches to achieve great things,” she said. “That’s what makes it so special for me. I went through that, and I’m still able to kiss that beautiful trophy.” She didn’t hold a grudge. “I was expecting way worse, to be honest. What can you do? You just have to go out there and try to play tennis in the end of the day,” she said. “It’s a tennis match, tennis battle, final of the Australian Open. I was there to play that. “The things what happened in the past, I did the best thing I could to explain, and it was left behind me already.” The match contained plenty of nervy moments and tension, and 16 service breaks — nine for Li. But it also produced plenty of winners and bravery on big points. Azarenka will retain the No. 1 ranking she’s mostly held since her first Grand Slam win in Melbourne last year. Li moved into the top five and is heartened by a recent trend of Australian runner-ups winning the French Open. She accomplished that in 2011, as did Ana Ivanovic (2008) and Maria Sharapova (2012). “I wish I can do the same this year, as well,” Li said.
Oregon women nip WSU THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
PULLMAN — Ariel Thomas’ tie-breaking 3-pointer with 28 seconds remaining helped Oregon beat Washington State 70-68 Friday night to win its first Pac-12 game of the season. Thomas, who finished with 20 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists, also made two free throws in the closing seconds as the Ducks (3-16, 1-6 Pac-12) ended an eight-game losing streak and won for the first time in nine games away from home this season.
Delgado top scorer Amanda Delgado led Oregon with 21 points, all scored from behind the 3-point line where she was 7 for 13. Thomas made four of Oregon’s 12 3-pointers, while Washington State had four. Jillian Alleyne had 15 points and 13 rebounds for the Ducks. Tia Presley led Washington State (5-13, 1-6) with 16 points. Lia Galdeira scored 13 points for the Cougars.
Riders: Beat Bremerton Knights by 20 points CONTINUED FROM B1 Angeles was 11 points, and the Riders again controlled The Knights outscored the fourth quarter. “They had a nice third the Riders 21-10 in the quarter behind Kluge’s quarter, and they earned scoring, Driskell’s 3-point that,” Poindexter said of the shooting and their specialty, Knights. “But that fourth quarter rebounding. “They’re the best was nice. We found ourrebounding team in the selves again and got comleague, without a doubt,” fortable. I thought it was a very mature effort on our Poindexter said. “They’re a solid rebound- part.” Unlike Bremerton, the ing team, and I think that’s how they’ve won the [high] Riders had a number of players contribute. number of games. Hinrichs topped the “They’re scrappy, they’re active, they get after it, they team with 16 points, including a key bucket that broke don’t quit.” However, the closest the Knights’ 10-0 scoring Bremerton came to Port run in the third quarter,
and six steals. As a team, Port Angeles racked up 27 steals, which accounted for all but 33 of Bremerton’s turnovers. Walker, who leads the league in steals, had five and scored 14 points. “The thing about Macy, she gets both hands in. She uses her [5-foot-4] height to her advantage, and she comes through and grabs the ball with two hands,” Poindexter said. “She doesn’t swipe and swat, she reaches with both hands and grabs. It’s a very effective technique.” Junior post Bailee Jones scored in double figures for
the third time in four games with 10 points, and had six rebounds and four steals. “I think Bailee Jones did some things tonight that were a big step for her personally,” Poindexter said. “Bailee’s been progressing game by game by game, but I think this was a new level for her. “Different kids progress at different parts of the season. It was this time last year that Mariah Frazier became a better player, and I think Bailee may be starting to take that next step.” Krista Johnson had seven points and four assists to go along with her
four steals; Frazier had eight points, six rebounds and two steals; and Northern and Kylee Jeffers both had four assists and three steals apiece. The win was obviously big for the Riders — it essentially gives them a two-game lead in the league standings. But they still have three games left. “Our message was, basically, this [game] wasn’t for the league championship,” Poindexter said. “We’ve got to go to Port Townsend, we’ve got to go to Olympic, and then we’ve got Sequim here. It’s a rivalry
game, kids get tight, you never know [what will happen].” Poindexter pointed out that the Wolves will have leading scorer Alexas Besand, who missed last month’s rivalry game due to injury, when Sequim (5-7, 7-9) and Port Angeles (12-1, 12-4) play Thursday.

Sale: Investors consider buying Kings team CONTINUED FROM B1 Earlier this week, the mayor introduced 20 investors who have pledged at least $1 million each to be minority investors in the team. Johnson said he hopes to secure the heavy-hitters who will anchor the plan and produce a â€œfair and competitive offerâ€? by next week.
Burkle expressed interests in buying the Kings two years ago, when Johnson convinced league owners to give his city another shot at financing a new arena when the franchise was exploring a move to Anaheim. Mastrov was among the final bidders for the Golden State Warriors before Joe Lacob and Peter Guber bought the team for an
NBA-record $450 million in 2010. The Maloof family has a pending purchase agreement that will give the Hansen-Ballmer group a 65 percent controlling interests in the franchise, which has a total valuation of $525 million, and move the team to Seattle and restore the SuperSonics name, another person familiar with the decision said earlier this week.
That means the group will pay a little more than $340 million. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal is waiting to be approved. Hansenâ€™s group also is hoping to buy out other minority investors. The main stipulation Johnson is counting on is that the Maloofs are still allowed to receive other offers until the league approves
the sale, which the mayor expects to take until at least April, when owners meet in New York. The deadline for teams to file for relocation for next season is March 1, though that has been extended the last two years for the Kings. NBA owners also can approve the sale at any time once the vetting process is complete.

Peninsula College faculty, staff show off disparate talents at free art exhibition BY DIANE URBANI

PAZ (4)/PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
“Sedona,” a work in cotton and silk by Peninsula College Human Resources Director Bonnie Cauffman, is one of more than 30 pieces on display in the PUB Gallery through Feb. 8.
PORT ANGELES — After giving birth to her daughter, Imogen, six years ago, Amy McIntyre didn’t have a lot of time for art. But then, running around town with her little girl, she began making black-and-white photographs — Imogen frolicking on City Pier, buying popcorn on a downtown Port Angeles sidewalk — to capture moments simple and sweet. McIntyre is among 13 contributors to the Peninsula College Faculty and Staff Biennial Art Exhibition, open now at the campus’ PUB Gallery beside the Little Theater on the campus at 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd. The show, free to the public, is as varied as the people who contributed their work. Each artist has a story, of course, told in bright paint, silk and cotton, or with a camera and sunlight. McIntyre, a program assistant at the college, is showing her work for the first time, and there’s a symmetry to it: She named Imogen, now 6, after photography pioneer Imogen Cunningham. Another staffer, Barbara Van Vorst, took drawing and painting courses from Peninsula College art professor Michael Paul Miller, and like McIntyre, she’s blossomed as an artist. Van Vorst’s “Little Lady,” an image of her King Charles Cava-
lier spaniel, Molly, has inspired visitors to ask her to paint their pets’ portraits. That’s “astonishing,” said Van Vorst, a Student Services administrative assistant. Also on display are four color-saturated boxes in a series titled “Building Blocks.” They’re Renne Brock-Richmond’s meditation on the infinite variety of art and people in the world. The boxes are painted in the same colors, but each has its own three-dimensional features. One is grooved with BrockRichmond’s enlarged thumbprint, while another bears a mass of satin rosettes, and another, made of wood and paper, depicts water molecules.
‘Infinite combinations’ “The gist of the series . . . is that we’re basically made up of the exact same materials. But the infinite combinations make us unique,” said Brock-Richmond, who teaches community courses in art and technology. The boxes are “unique and united,” she said, like the members of a community. Others in the community of teachers and support staff showing their art include Reina Barreto, Bonnie Cauffman, Mary Hunchberger, Ed Jaramillo, Steven Lidback, Bill Merrill, Michael Paul Miller, Michael Mills, Getta Rogers and Marina Shipova. Their creations will stay on display in the PUB Gallery until Feb. 8. The gallery is open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. Peninsula College, based in Port Angeles, has branches in Port Townsend and Forks. For information about the show and other activities and programs of Peninsula College, visit www.PenCol.edu.

Taking your pet’s health care expert — your veterinarian — out of the picture is never going to be the best way to save money. And, yes, they go hand in hand. Veterinarians know money is always an issue, and they’re ready to offer wellness plans that will help you keep your pet healthy.

For example, ask your veterinarian to give you prescriptions for medications to be filled elsewhere or to match prices. Comparison shopping for medications may offer considerable savings, especially if there are generic equivalents available. We also recommend looking into pet health insurance — because no pet lover wants to say no to a pet who can be saved because the money isn’t there for the care. Because plans differ, do your research before buying to make sure the most likely health problems of your pet are covered. Talk to your veterinarian, and you’ll get even more good advice.

OLYMPIA — Amelia Breithaupt, an eighth-grader at Port Townsend’s Blue Heron Middle School, recently served as a page in the state’s Senate Page Program. Wanting to learn more about how government works, Amelia applied and was accepted to the program under the sponsorship of Sen. Jim Hargrove, D-Hoquiam, one of the three legislators representing Jefferson and Clallam counties in Olympia. Although she’s not sure if she wants to pursue a political career, Amelia said, she learned from her time in Olympia that the qualities of a good page are similar to the qualities of a good senator: You need to be organized, responsible, polite and well dressed. “It is important for kids to be a part of the political process, and I’m glad Amelia took the time to come to Olympia to help out,” Hargrove said.

Drivers need to be aware that the burden of choice regarding whether or not to drive, during the periods of inherently hazardous winter conditions, rests with them. The safest choice is not to drive in hazardous conditions. If you must drive, please remember the following:

Drive slower. Make sure that your vehicle is equipped for winter driving conditions. Pay attention to the days when there may be less winter road maintenance. Check on road conditions, however remember that information may not always be available, or may not be current.

Each sits on a side directly Several readers have sent
photos of hummingbirds in their yard, and they always make me envious. Multiple hummers will be buzzing about a feeder, and they include both sexes. There has been a little improvement this winter, but it isnâ€™t anything to brag about. We did decide to keep two syrup feeders available for the hummingbirds throughout the colder months. While we always do this in the spring and summer, the struggle to keep the feeders thawed was the reason for one feeder. A second one was kept in the house so it could be exchanged when freezing became a problem. Something new was tried this year, and so far, it has been working very well. One feeder hangs under the eaves of the house in a location protected from the wind and weather. A convenient porch light is
just inches away, and we keep it on round-the-clock. It was gratifying to watch a male Annaâ€™s sit on the feeder keeping warm even when it wasnâ€™t feeding. A second similar arrangement was added this winter. A lantern-type porch light hangs under cover over the patio and is also sheltered from the weather. When we discovered that this light was easy to hang a feeder on, it only had to be moved about 2 feet from its former exposed location.
Two feeders in winter This made the transition easy for the hummingbirds, who favor this spot during the summer. Now, we can enjoy two feeders even in the winter. Keeping their food liquid while also providing warmth for wintering hummingbirds has become a challenge for more and more of us. There is no doubt that the
population has been increasing. I wish there was some good scientific information on why this is the case. To write it off to â€œglobal warmingâ€? isnâ€™t good enough. The Annaâ€™s hummingbirds were wintering on Vancouver Island in British Columbia decades ago, and it has always been colder in that region. There are only a few weeks left before the female Annaâ€™s start building their nests. If there are clematis plants in your yard and you didnâ€™t cut them back, be sure to leave on any fluffy seed pods. The Annaâ€™s use these in their nests. It is amazing to see these tiny birds collecting nesting materials in February, but hummingbirds are amazing birds.

Godparents-to-be find others in wings DEAR ABBY: My fianceâ€™s friend â€œArtâ€? and his wife, â€œJulie,â€? just had a baby. While Julie was pregnant, she asked my fiance and me to be godparents. Although we could not attend her baby shower due to a previous commitment, we contributed several gifts as well as a quilt I had made. A few weeks later, Julie posted on her social networking site that she was thankful for her babyâ€™s godparents and named an entirely different couple â€” not us. I am offended. If she had discussed her reason for the change with me, I would have understood. But there was no dialogue, and to this day, I have never received so much as a thank-you for our shower presents. I would like to distance myself from Julie, but without damaging the relationship between Art and my fiance, who thinks I am over-

Dear Abby: A number of years ago, when two of my sons got married, I paid for two lovely rehearsal dinners among other wedding costs.
Both marriages ended in divorce. Now, they are both engaged again and planning weddings for next summer. My question is, how many rehearsal dinners do I have to pay for? And how many other wedding expenses am I expected to pay for the second time around? Mother of Grooms in Virginia Dear Mother Of Grooms: From now on, you do not have to pay for anything. The expenses should be paid for by your sons and their bridesto-be, especially if their fiancees also have been married previously.

Solve bare-root problem with pruning AS I VISITED the Peninsula Daily News office last week, Rex Wilson, executive editor, approached me with a great question. Rex referenced last weekâ€™s column on the point that now is the time to plant bare-root items or transplant woody plants because of our unique and mild climate patterns. He then wondered whether now is the time to prune or cut away large roots because he has a massive evergreen with a root protruding from it that will soon destroy his walkway.
Root pruning And since I was planning to write a series of articles starting this week on pruning (because we are now entering an absolute optimum time for pruning), letâ€™s start with root pruning. Root pruning is exactly what its name implies: pruning of a root system. It is done for a variety of reasons â€” all are extremely benefi-

With this type of pruning, fertilize at the cutline with a nutrient appropriate for the type of plant, and prune this way in February. â– Root prune at planting time. I bet most of us know about roughing up roots when a
potted item is root-bound before its planting. Many plants that have been in pots for years become rootbound, and running scissors or another bladed tool up and down to break up the root ball helps untangle the root mob.
Make it a clean cut Torn or tattered roots are detrimental as well, so when you are transplanting or dealing with bare-root items, make sure to have clean cuts. I always prune on the roots of bare-root plants to further stimulate them. Next week, the seven reasons to prune â€” because February is the month for many plants.

Volunteers wrap up 2012â€™s Toys for Tots gift campaign PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” Volunteers for the Clallam County 2012 U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots campaign closed shop last week for another year after spending weeks gathering, sorting, packing and delivering donated toys to underprivileged children. More than 6,854 toys were
delivered to 3,153 less-fortunate children. Every request made during the 2012 season was filled, 2012 Toys for Tots coordinator Eric Miner said. â€œYour efforts, from birthday parties, school toy collections, live music toy drives, special store sales, Christmas bazaars, employee party collections and monetary donations helped
achieve our goal of providing a little Christmas to Clallam Countyâ€™s less-fortunate kids,â€? Miner said. â€œThank you.â€?

home to help accomplish our mission,â€? Miner said. â€œWe hope 2013 will be a happy and prosperous new year for all.â€? Volunteers included members of Grange No. 1112, the Port Angeles High School Navy Junior ROTC cadets, the Marine Corps League and American Legion Post No. 62, as well as numerous individuals.

have to be allocated between personal and business use, as is required under the regular method, the IRS said. Mary Kay Foss, a certified public accountant in Danville, Calif., said many of her firm’s clients will welcome the simpler form when it’s available. A quick way to see if using the simple form will make sense, she said, is to multiply the square footage of your home office by $5 a square foot — the formula for the new deduction option. (If your office is 300 square feet, then your deduction would be $1,500, the maximum allowed.)
Save some time If the result is more than you claimed for your home office on your most recent tax return, you can probably save yourself some time and use the simpler form. If you have higher expenses, though, you may still want to slog through the more detailed form. Keep in mind that restrictions on the home office deduction still apply, including the requirement that the office must be used “regularly and exclusively” for business. So if your home “office” is a laptop that shares space with your food processor on your kitchen counter, taking the deduction is probably a stretch. Business expenses unrelated to the home, like advertising, supplies and wages paid to employees, are still fully deductible. More details on the new option can be found in Revenue Procedure 2013-13. And if you want to comment on the new option, you can, until April 15 of this year. Send an email to Notice. Comments@irscounsel. treas.gov and include “Rev. Proc. 2013-13” in the subject line.

Service set at Sequim legion post PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
SEQUIM — Jack Grennan Post 62 of the American Legion will hold a Four Chaplains service at the post, 107 E. Prairie St., at 11 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 3. The service will honor the four chaplains who gave their lives to save other civilian and military personnel during the sinking of their World War II troopship on Feb. 3, 1943. They gave their life jackets to others to give them a chance to survive. The four, Rev. George Fox (Methodist), Jewish Rabbi Alexander Goode, Rev. Clark Poling (Dutch Reformed) and Father John Washington (Roman Catholic), joined arms, said prayers and sang hymns until their ship — torpedoed by a German submarine — disappeared beneath the waves. Biographies of each man will be read and each honored. American Legion posts nationwide remember the bravery, comradeship and sacrifice of the four chaplains every year with memorial services. The event is open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. For more information, phone Lorri Gilchrist at 360-683-6419 or email email@example.com.
Death and Memorial Notice PALMER J. TRETTEVIK December 3, 1925 November 16, 2012 Palmer J. Trettevik (age 86) died peacefully on Friday, November 16, 2012. He was at the University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle that morning with his family by his side when his six-year struggle with bladder cancer came to an end. Palmer was born in Margie (Koochiching County), Minnesota, to Alfred Ananias Trettevik and Amelia (Skorpen) Trettevik, on December 3, 1925. Alfred was a pulpwood logger and found work in Neah Bay shortly after Palmer was born. In 1926, Alfred moved his wife and seven children to the Skorpen farm in Hatton, North Dakota. Amelia and the children stayed there with her parents, Lars and Anna Skorpen, while Alfred was in Neah Bay building a house for them. When the house was ready, Amelia, Edith, Lewis, Constance, Ruth, Thelma, Robert and Palmer traveled by train to Seattle. In Seattle, they boarded the coastal freighter the Comanche for the final leg of their journey to Neah Bay. They arrived in Neah Bay on November 29, 1927. On that November day in 1927, the NorwegianAmerican Trettevik family was one of five white families living on the Makah Reservation. Later, Palmer would grow to feel like a Norwegian-Makah-American. This pride in growing up as a Makah revealed itself many years later when his granddaughter reported to her kindergarten class that she was part Makah. When he was 5 years old, Palmer entered the first grade at the all-white C.L. Woods School. By the next year, the schools were consolidated, and Palmer entered the second grade at the Neah Bay school. There, he met his “Best Buddy” and lifelong friend Hubert Markishtum. The two of them spent many hours in the canoe — practicing survival techniques, going out to Waa-
dah Island for fire food for Hubert’s mother or just having fun riding the waves at the mouth of the Hobuck River. Hubert’s mother taught Palmer how to eat the local foods such as sea urchins, barnacles and hard-smoked salmon dipped in seal oil. Great honor was bestowed upon him when he was asked to represent a Makah family by dancing their personal family dance (the wolf dance) at a community function. Growing up as a Makah included gaffing fish in the creek, playing group kid-games on the beach late at night and being a member of the Makah “bone game” team, in which he was often selected to hold the bones or be the pointer. Palmer graduated from Neah Bay High School in the spring of 1943. His plans to attend the University of Washington were changed when he received word that he was about to be drafted. Instead of waiting to be drafted, he went to enlist in the United States Air Force. But his dream of being a pilot came to an abrupt end before it began when it was discovered that he was colorblind. On January 20, 1944, he joined the Army and served in the Philippines during World War II. Palmer was attached to the 276th Signal Heavy Construction Company, serving as chief line foreman in New Guinea, the Southern Philippines and Luzon. During his service time, he earned the Asiatic Pacific Campaign Medal, Philippine Liberation Medal with two bronze Service Stars as well as a Good Conduct Medal and a Victory Medal. In spite of the war, Palmer had fond memories of his time in the Philippines because of the friendships that he formed with the Duque family members. The Duque family lived in Manila. They opened their door to Palmer and his Army buddy, Silva, and were offended if the two of them did not show up each night for the evening meal. At his death, Palmer was a proud member of the American Legion Post 0062 in Sequim. Back to the States in February of 1946, Palmer went to work for Crown Zellerbach in Neah Bay.
Mr. Trettevik He worked as an oiler for Archie Larson, who was building logging roads with a Northwest shovel. Normally, Archie would not let anyone touch his machine, even to do the maintenance work. But Archie liked Palmer’s work ethics and attention to detail, so he trained him to operate and do the required maintenance on the machine. This allowed Palmer to fill in for operators during vacations and raised his pay level. He took immense pride in his road-building skill. With a little money in his pocket and a good summer job to come back to, Palmer registered for classes at Washington State University in Pullman, Washington, in the fall of 1949. That is where he met his wife, Maxine Lenore Aarstol. They were married on September 2, 1950, at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Lawrence, Washington, and both returned to WSU to continue their schooling. At the end of his second year, Palmer transferred to the University of Washington, where he majored in metallurgical engineering. During his working years, Palmer spent 20 years with Crown Zellerbach in Neah Bay building logging roads with a Northwest shovel and later loading logs. The next 20 years he worked in supervisory positions for Intalco Aluminum Corporation in Ferndale, Washington, and their sister plant of Eastalco Aluminum Company in Frederick, Maryland. He started working for Intalco in January of 1966 while the plant was under construction. On May 1, 1974 he was transferred to the Eastalco plant and worked there
until July 1981, at which time he was transferred back to Intalco. After retiring from Intalco in February of 1986, he and his wife returned to the family property, located on Chito Beach between Sekiu and Neah Bay, and converted it into a summer operation, Tretteviks RV Park and Campground. In the late ’50s, Palmer and his wife had developed trailer sites on the property for monthly rentals, Tretteviks Trailer Park. Palmer enjoyed and became friends with people from all over the world as they returned over and over to spend their vacations at the campground. Although Palmer was very serious and no-nonsense when it came to work and protecting his family and his workers, he also found time for laughter and happiness. Basketball was a joy for him, whether he was playing on the Neah Bay High School team, on the Neah Bay town team or watching his children or grandchildren playing. Playing pinochle or cribbage with family and friends was a lifelong source of happiness and laughter. Family was allimportant to Palmer, and family reunions were his favorite social gatherings. Family gatherings were a chance for him to meet new members of the family, prepare and bake “salmon-on-a-stick” Makahstyle, share slides of Norway and all the genealogy information that he and his wife had been able to learn through the years. Many of the extended Trettevik family members were reunited because of Palmer’s efforts over the last 62 years. Palmer and his wife, Maxine, went to Florø, Nor-
way, in 1980, Alfred Trettevik’s birthplace. They stayed with Palmer’s cousin, who could speak no English. Upon returning home, Palmer and Maxine immediately joined the Wergeland Sons of Norway Lodge in Bellingham, Washington, and signed up for Norwegian lessons. They spent seven years studying the language. The lessons paid off in 1985 when they returned to Florø. By a miraculous series of events, on that trip, Palmer found his Aunt Margaret, his dad’s sister. Margaret spoke no English but was able to understand the limited Bokmål Norwegian that they had learned, and they could also understand her. After finding Margaret, they met many more relatives that were living in Norway and became aware of others that were living in the United States. In the past several years, Hobuck Beach (where Palmer and Hubert played as children) became the site of the family Thanksgiving gathering. Palmer taught his grandchildren to make kelp cars like he was taught by the Makahs. The meals included potato lefse, a Norwegian bread that Palmer loved. He was so proud of telling people how it was made and how it should be eaten. He carved Norwegian lefse sticks that were just right for turning the lefse as it cooked on its very own special griddle. Many of the lefse sticks that he carved were given as special gifts to family members. Each stick had the recipient’s own name burned into the cedar handle. Spending time walking on Hobuck Beach (in the rain or the sunshine) allowed him special moments of sharing with each individual family member. Palmer, also known as Tuss & Paul, is survived by his wife, Maxine, of Sequim; his sons, Craig Lance (Laura) Trettevik of Seattle, Washington, and Eddy Alfred Trettevik of Bellevue, Washington; and daughter Susan Kay Trettevik of Forks. He is also survived by seven grandchildren, Amy Spears of Utah, Joseph Trettevik of Seattle, Taylor Trettevik and her husband,
Jacob Sabado, of Bellevue, Ryan Trettevik of Mentone, California, Maya and Kayci Trettevik of Forks, and Theresa (Joseph) Drake of Arizona; eight great-grandchildren, Gabriel and Raphael Spears of Utah, Arya, Ryla and Nord Sabado of Bellevue, and Katana, Jordin and Enzo Drake of Arizona; nephews and nieces Larry Wagle, Gary and Brent Humble, Tom Hammock, Arline (Wagle) Shilley, Linda (Treddie) Trettevick and Bonnie (Hammock) St. Julien, Joyce (Jonni) Trettevick; numerous grandnephews and -nieces and great-grandnephews and -nieces; brother and sisters-in-law LeRoy Fuller, Joanne (Fuller) Jordan and Deanne (Fuller) Cain; and nephews- and nieces-inlaw Edwin Aarstol, Mark Aarstol, Cynthia (Aarstol) Pottle, Mark Fuller, Diana (Fuller) Riley, Elizabeth (Fuller) Charlberg, Michaela (Fuller) Stuart, Karen (Fuller) Egerdahl, David Jordan, Julianne (Jordan) Purdue, Tim Jordan, Joe Cain, Lena Cain and Allyson Love. Preceding him in death were his father, Alfred (February 12, 1966), and mother, Amelia (December 3, 1946); brothers Lewis “Louie” Trettevik (September 14, 2000) and Robert “Bob” Trettevik (January 16, 1999); sisters Edith Wagle (August 29, 1971), Constance “Connie” Johnson (December 27, 2004), Ruth Humble (October 11, 1995) and Thelma Hammock (December 31 1998); grandson Robert Travis (August 16, 1989); sister-in-law Cheryl (Fuller) Love (January 10, 1998); and brothers-in-law Jack Fuller (July 20, 2011) and Vernon Aarstol (December 21, 2009). In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions may be made to the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, 1100 Fairview Avenue North, Seattle, WA 98109. A celebration of his life will be held for friends and family on Saturday, February 16, 2013, beginning at 1:30 p.m. at the Sequim Prairie Grange/MacLeay Hall at 290 MacLeay, Sequim, WA 98382.

Death and Memorial Notice DOROTHEA HOVER-KRAMER Dorothea HoverKramer, an accomplished psychotherapist, author, musician, activist and artist, died suddenly of natural causes at age 72 on January 15, 2013, in Sequim. Dr. Hover-Kramer was born Dorothea Antonie Elsa Adelaide Christine Eitel in Berlin in 1940 and as a German child observed World War II and its immediate aftermath (including the Berlin Airlift) firsthand. Her father was previously a director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute. The family came to the United States after the war as part of Operation Paperclip, an American program to assimilate families of German scientists following the war. From Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the family settled in Toledo, Ohio, where her father was a professor at the University of Toledo. He founded a silicate chemistry laboratory later renamed the Wilhelm Eitel Institute. Dorothea graduated
Dr. Hover-Kramer from DeVilbiss High School in Toledo. She then attended the College of Wooster, trained to become a registered nurse at Flower Hospital in Toledo and Boston University, and later received an education doctorate from Nova University. She married George Hover in 1962, and the pair traveled to Southeast Asia for missionary work from 1968-1973 with their four small children, Mark, Karen, Franz and Anne. She later lived in Tampa, Florida, and married Dr. Charles Kramer
there in 1981. Her 18-yearold son Mark died in the same year. After Florida, Dorothea and Chuck lived in Poway, California, and Cave Junction, Oregon, before settling in Port Angeles in 2006. Dr. Hover-Kramer was an active practitioner of energy-oriented therapies for more than 30 years. Her background in both nursing and as a psychotherapist made her a pioneer in developing creative approaches for healing mind, body and spirit. Her Healing Touch
books have sold more than 100,000 copies, and the techniques are used in more than 100 hospitals in the USA and Canada. She co-founded the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology (ACEP) in 1999. She served as ACEP’s second president, was instrumental in implementing its certification program and presented regularly at conferences until recently. Several thousand Healing Touch practitioners are certified through ACEP. Dorothea was a prolific author in the field of energy psychotherapy, and her titles include Healing Touch (with various subtitles: 1st edition, 1995; 2nd edition, 2001; third edition, 2011); Energetic Approaches to Emotional Healing (with Karilee Halo Shames, 1996); Creative Energies: Integrative Energy Psychotherapy for Self-Expression and Healing (2002); Second Chance at Your Dream: Engaging Your Body’s Energy Resources for Optimal Aging, Creativity and Health (2009); and Creating Healing Relation-
ships: Professional Standards for Energy Therapy Practitioners (2011). Her books and associated instructional materials are regarded widely in the community as both groundbreaking and highly accessible to the practitioner. Dorothea was also a passionate supporter of organizations for change for many years at the local and national levels. Her enduring commitment to public good began perhaps when she co-founded in 1967 the Winter Hill Nursery School in Somerville, Massachusetts, which operates today as part of the Elizabeth Peabody House Co-op. Most recently in Washington state, she was a board member of the North Olympic Land Trust and on the Clallam County MoveOn Council. She was also chair of the Dungeness Valley Health & Wellness Clinic’s Wellness Committee and a staunch supporter of the arts, specifically the Port Angeles Symphony. We celebrate Dorothea as a performing classical
pianist, visual artist and avid traveler. She was wellknown everywhere she lived for organizing and performing with skilled chamber musicians. She came from a family of accomplished musicians, and family gatherings across the U.S. were frequently punctuated by late nights playing with her siblings and nephews. As an artist, she preferred pastel and acrylic media, with a focus on Western landscapes and the oceans. Many of her works were of professional quality and have been featured in public buildings and at other venues. Dorothea traveled extensively throughout her life, with repeated trips throughout the Americas and to Europe and Asia. Her last international trip, to the Galapagos Islands in November 2012, fulfilled a lifelong dream. Dorothea leaves her husband, Chuck Kramer; siblings Luise Peake-Dickerman, Franz Eitel and Elinor Hansen; daughters Karen Hover and Anne Severns; son Franz Hover; and seven grandchildren.
writer and researcher as she published large volumes of family history and genealogy. She also had time to enjoy new talents of photography and poetry, both coming together in her published and sold calendars featuring the local area. Her friends here became as close as family and were a great source of joy and contentment in her later years, always sharing hardship and successes, laughs and tears. When Virginia was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, her personal courage, independence and grace never failed her and became great
strengths, while her family and friends came together and supported her through the last stages of her time here on Earth. She was known for her kindness, quick humor, her wry observation and amazing independence. We will miss this lovely mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend. Virginia leaves her sister, Margaret Brown, and Margaret’s husband, Ralph Klages; her daughters, MeLinda (Terry) Jeffress and Laurie Evans; her six wonderful grandchildren; her nine beautiful greatgrandchildren; and friends whom she has loved all her life.
Death and Memorial Notice VIRGINIA ROBERTA BROWN SKVAREK October 20, 1927 January 19, 2013 Virgina Roberta Brown Skvarek, our beautiful mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend, returned to our Father in heaven peacefully and well-loved on January 19, 2013. Virginia was born on October 20, 1927, in Glendale, California, to Louis Landry Brown and Winifred Alverta (Stewart) Brown. She was a happy girl with happy memories of a more rural California with her
Mrs. Skvarek grandparents’ farm, close family and many friends with whom she shared adventures and games.
After graduating from Glendale High School, she had the opportunity to work in Los Angeles as a switchboard operator for the FBI. She loved her job and made close friends who were important to her all of her life. She met and married Bill Evans, and although their relationship ended in divorce, she became the happy mother of two daughters, MeLinda and Laurie. Through her work at Hammond Organ Studio as a secretary, she had the opportunity to hone her natural love of music by studying the organ and became a great musician.
She shared her talent with others through performance and teaching. By studying nights, she became a top-notch secretary and worked for General Dynamics and the U.S. Forestry Department, and retired in 1992 from Claremont Colleges. At the end of her career, she moved away from California to Sequim, where she began the happiest time of her life. Virginia was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and had time to serve many callings and spend time with the wonderful friends she made here in Sequim. Virginia became a

Death and Memorial Notice EDWARD H. VANWALD January 5, 1927 January 9, 2013 “Who’s in charge down there?” was a familiar phrase remembered by the family of Edward Vanwald. Our hero, who was larger than life in both heart and action, went home to be with the Lord on January 9, 2013. Ed lived a long, full life and left behind his daughter Pam (Kevin) Pursley, daughter Carol (Ralph) Mays, several grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Ed served in the Merchant Marine during World War II, helping to supply the war effort in the Pacific. Upon his return, he met the love of his life, Mary, and the two were married for 57 years before Grandma passed
Mr. Vanwald away in September of 2004 with Grandpa by her side. Ed moved to the Olympic Peninsula in 1971 with his family and worked as an operating engineer. He helped construct the Elwha bridge on state Highway 112 and would often quiz his family on how many tons of con-
crete and rebar it took to build the bridge. (Sorry, Grandpa, I still can’t remember.) Ed worked on the riprap on Ediz Hook, placed the statue of the cormorants at the Port Angeles pier and worked on several highway projects on the Olympic Peninsula. When he retired, Ed spent his time investing in garage sales, tinkering in his workshop, but always found time to put yet another coat of brown paint on his home on Caroline Street. Ed was a proud member of the Masonic Society and joined the Shriners after the organization supported his brother, Walt, when he was diagnosed with polio. Grandpa, you will be missed, and the truth is that we always knew that you were the one in charge.
Death and Memorial Notice MARY LEE HOEFEL November 9, 1921 January 15, 2013 Mary Lee Hoefel was born November 9, 1921, in Newport, Washington, to Charles Bell and Clara Ebert Bell. She passed away on Tuesday, January 15, 2013, at the age of 91. Upon graduation from Newport High School, she attended Cheney Normal College, earning a bachelor’s degree in education. She married Fred Hoefel in 1943 and soon moved to Las Vegas to begin her
teaching career. Returning to Spokane, Washington, Mary Lee taught at Shriner’s Hospital, assisting youngsters dealing with severe orthopedic conditions. She and Fred enjoyed their summer cabin vacations at Priest Lake, Idaho, and winter holidays in Hawaii. Upon retirement, Mary Lee and Fred relocated to SunLand in Sequim, where they participated in a variety of cultural activities. Mary Lee loved her travel experiences, appreciated her many years of membership in PEO and
enjoyed playing bridge and participating in Cards for Cardiac. Mary Lee settled at The Lodge in Sequim after the passing of her husband, Fred, and her sisters, Katherine Kahl and Helen Henderson; her brother, Richard Bell; and her brother-in-law, Everett Henderson. Her niece, Nancy Olson, and her nephews, Ken, Ron and Don Bell (and their spouses, Ernie, Pat, Ruth and Cindy), so enjoyed her life and will miss the charisma that she contributed to the Bell family.

Summer vacations often included a special trip to Wyoming in search of the wily trout.
In 1996, the Colorado Wildlife Association honored Dick and Betty as Volunteers of the Year.

A solution to those winter blues?
BY KATY READ MINNEAPOLIS STAR-TRIBUNE
At first, she thought it was the postholiday blues, since her mood tended to dip around the time festive, glowing December gave way to bleak January. “I thought it was all the gray,” said Barb Churchill, 51, of Minnetonka, Minn. “The trees, the ground, the sky . . . “ The problem, she noticed, recurred every year. She would feel sluggish, foggy, tempted to overeat — difficult emotions, even for a professional life coach like Churchill.
Persisting fog But her trusted habits — exercise, yoga, balanced diet — didn’t cut through the fog. Her early morning routine of conscious breathing, meditation and gratitude practice failed to generate her accustomed a.m. energy. “I’m [normally] a pretty high-energy person, but I was just a ball on the couch,” Churchill said. “It got to a point of where I didn’t want to do anything.” TURN
Box therapy WHILE PART OF the appeal of light therapy is that it can be self-prescribed, using a light box is not as simple as it may appear. Experts recommend consulting with a knowledgeable health care provider before starting treatment to rule out other medical conditions and help with monitoring and adjusting bright-light exposure. Some persons may want to try simply getting more natural light to help with seasonal mood changes — getting out as much as possible during the brightest time of day in the winter, exercising outside (see story on Page D5 today), sitting near windows during the day or taking vacations to sunny locales in the winter. If you choose to try light therapy, here are a few tips from experts: TURN

Yacht transporters load up ship decks THANKS AND A tip of the bosun’s cap to Bill Shannon of New Tripoli, Pa., a wind sailor who reads the column on the Internet at www. peninsuladailynews.com. His follow-up question is in response to last week’s column describing the transportation of yachts from Victoria to Florida by ship. Shannon asked: Can more than one 145foot yacht be placed onboard the deck of a ship? Worldwide, there are a number of companies that are capable of transporting yachts by ship to almost any destination. Depending on the size of the ship and the varying lengths of vessels that are to be shipped — which typically range from 30 feet to 180 feet long — as many as two dozen yachts can be transported at once. There are two types of ships that are used to transport yachts that have distinctly different loading methodologies. Most companies use the more traditional cargo ship with a topside deck tailored specifically for yacht transport and use the “lift on/lift off” method. In this mode, straps that are up to 2 feet wide are placed under a yacht and attached to cranes that hoist the vessel out of the water and nestle it into cradles that are preset aboard the ship. Personnel then securely lash the yacht to the ship’s deck. Other companies use semi-submersible ships. These vessels take on ballast water that floods the deck of the ship, thus allowing yachts to be driven aboard. Once personnel aboard ship have secured each yacht in its cradle, the ship expels its ballast. When the vessel’s deck is dry, the yachts are securely attached to the deck for the upcoming voyage. In most instances, one or more member of a yacht’s crew remains with

temporarily would extend a beer tax and a business tax paid by doctors, lawyers and others until the end of 2015. “It will take some time to get this up and running,” Murray said. The proposal also has a difficult path to get out of the Senate, or even a committee hearing. Now that Murray and Democrats are in the minority, he will need to persuade a Republican-dominated coalition to join the effort. Republican lawmakers have said the state needs to focus on having government live with the revenue it already has. Republican Rep. Gary Alexander of Olympia, a budget writer in the House, said the state needs to focus on simply funding education first and not focusing on creating a new tax.

Itâ€™s not your ordinary kind of hunt Florida holds competition to kill invasive pythons BY LIZETTE ALVAREZ THE NEW YORK TIMES
HOMESTEAD, Fla. â€” For as long as anyone can remember, hunters here have wielded machetes, knives, rifles and crossbows as they swept past thickets of mosquitoes and saw grass in pursuit of alligators, feral hogs, bobcats and vermin of all sizes. But on the outskirts of the Everglades this month, a different kind of hunt is taking place, and among those on the trail are three men with little macho swagger and zero hunting finery. They drive up gravel roads alongside the brush in a red â€œman-vanâ€? (a welllived-in Toyota Sienna) and a blue Prius (â€œYou canâ€™t beat the mileage,â€? one says). And when they get lucky, they clamber down from their vehicles and snare enormous Burmese pythons with their bare hands, shrugging off the inevitable bites. Two of the hunters are brothers, reared in the swamps of Central Florida with eight other siblings. The third is a Utah native, now a Miami highschool teacher, who met one of the brothers in the apartment building they share. They quickly discovered they have much in common â€” they are Mormons, for one thing, and not afraid of snakes, for another. Theirs was truly a chance encounter, considering that pythons far outnumber snake-savvy Mormons in South Florida. â€œWe donâ€™t hunt on the Sabbath,â€? declared Blake Russ, 24, a Florida International University student.
In competition But on this day, the brothers are in it to win it. They have joined Floridaâ€™s â€œPython Challenge 2013,â€? the first-ever open-invitation contest organized by the stateâ€™s Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. So frustrated are wildlife officials with the prolific Burmese pythons that on Jan. 12 they began a one-
where and nowhere. Catching them is easy. The pythons â€” which can stretch to 20 feet and more â€” are lazy. They dislike moving. They rarely travel. Instead, they wait out their prey and ambush it, sinking their teeth in to hold it in place while they wrap them up tight, suffocate them and swallow them whole, little by little. But the snakes blend in with the yellowish, brownish brush here. â€œItâ€™s like looking for a piece of camouflage,â€? said Devin Belliston, 26, the science teacher in the group. Seeing just one â€œBurmâ€? is enough to excite a hunter for days. â€œItâ€™s like seeing Bigfoot,â€? said Bryan Russ, 35, Blake Russâ€™ older brother, who once unleashed 30 garter snakes inside an Idaho college dorm. (He got kicked out of school, which he called a â€œgreat life lesson.â€?) Studying the python lifestyle is critical to success. Hunters must know that the best time to find one is the morning after the temperature drops into the 60s or below. The snakes surface to warm up in the sun. They stay close to water, so canals and levies are a good bet. They like rock piles. Most savvy hunters stick to gravel paths or roads that abut grassy areas with water nearby.
month python hunt in South Florida, opening it up to just about anybody over the age of 18. The hunt is taking place on state land, not federal parkland, which is off-limits. The only requirement is that contestants must take a training course â€” online. A prize of $1,000 will be awarded to the hunter who catches the longest snake and $1,500 to the one who â€œharvestsâ€? the most snakes. About 1,300 people have signed up. The pythons, considered invasive and uninvited, arrived here as pets. After some escaped or were let loose by fed-up owners, they slithered toward marshy land, mostly in and around the Everglades. There, they snack regularly on native wading birds, gators, deer, bobcat, opossums, raccoons and rabbits. They breed easily, laying eight to 100 eggs. Killing the snake is a requirement of the â€œPython Challenge,â€? and for this the website suggests a firearm or a captive bolt (the slaughterhouse stunning tool used to chilling effect in the film â€œNo Country for Old Menâ€?).

Health briefs: Tighten painkillers; curb ER use THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHNGTON â€” Trying to stem the scourge of prescription-drug abuse in the United States, a Food and Drug Administration advisory panel has voted to toughen restrictions on Vicodin and other hydrocodone products, the most widely used narcotic painkillers in the country. The panel voted 19-10 in favor of the recommendation, which the FDA will likely follow. The recommendation would limit access to the drugs by making them harder to prescribe. The recommendation would subject Vicodin and dozens of other medicines to the same restrictions as other narcotic drugs, such as oxycodone and morphine. Indeed, hydrocodone belongs to a family of drugs known as opioids, which include morphine, heroin, oxycodone, codeine and methadone. The change would have sweeping consequences for doctors, pharmacists and patients. Under the proposed rules, refills without a new prescription would be forbidden, as would faxed prescriptions and those called
in by phone. Only written prescriptions from a doctor would be allowed, and pharmacists and distributors would be required to store the drugs in special vaults. Prescription drugs account for about threequarters of all U.S. drug overdoses, with the number of deaths more than tripling since 1999, according to federal data. Since 2008, deaths from overdoses have outpaced deaths from car accidents. The FDA convened the panel, made up of scientists and other experts, after a request by the Drug Enforcement Administration, which contends that the drugs are among the most frequently abused painkillers in the country.
Trimming ER visits OLYMPIA â€” A plan by doctors and hospitals to avoid expensive emergencyroom care for Medicaid patients with chronic conditions is on track to save as much as $31 million for the year, according to a coalition of medical providers and state officials.

officials â€” was developed as an alternative to a controversial proposal by the state in 2011 to sharply limit payments for conditions it deemed â€œnonemergent.â€? The current approach, outlined in a state Health Care Authority report, turns on what doctors call â€œbest practices,â€? including developing care plans for repeat patients, electronically tracking patientsâ€™ visits to other hospitals so care can be coordinated and unnecessary tests avoided, educating patients about improper ER use and helping connect patients with primary-care providers. Almost all hospitals in the state voluntarily signed up, worried the state would impose cuts otherwise. Visits by â€œfrequent fliersâ€? â€” patients who often seek care in emergency departments â€” declined by 23 percent, the report said. The numbers are preliminary, based on five monthsâ€™ data. But the seven-point program was hailed in announcements Thursday by the state, hospitals and the national emergencymedicine society. â€œThis program is a great example of the success public/private partnerships can have in applying evidencebased solutions to problems,â€? said Acting Health Care Authority Director MaryAnne Lindeblad. â€œThrough shared best practices and cooperation, we all win.â€? Cooperation was in short supply after the state proposed to simply not pay after the third ER visit by Medicaid patients for what the state said were nonemergency conditions. That plan spurred months of acrimony between medical providers and the state, a lawsuit by doctors, and eventually, its suspension by then-Gov. Chris Gregoire.

SAD: Trace timing to assess seasonal influence CONTINUED FROM D1
“I would have days where I couldn’t even function,” she continued. “I couldn’t put my finger on it because life was good, you know?” The first few times it happened, she toughed it out until April, when relief mysteriously arrived. Then about six winters ago, on a friend’s recommendation, she started spending time each day in front of a specially designed white light. “I’m not kidding you, that was a godsend,” she said. “Within about 10 days, I noticed I had more energy.”
CONTINUED FROM D1 ■ COSTS: Light boxes can be purchased for about $200 online; they are also available for rent. Some patients manage to get insurance reimbursement by having a doctor write a letter, but don’t count on your policy covering it. ■ PRECAUTIONS: Side effects include headaches and hypomania, though experts say these are rare. Face the light, but do not stare at the light. If you have an eye condition of any kind, clear light therapy with your ophthalmologist first. ■ MORE INFORMATION: Check the websites of the Society for Light Therapy and Biological Rhythms at www. sltbr.org and Center for Environmental Therapeutics at www.cet.org.

‘Winter blues’ Some people, like Churchill, struggle with winter gloom, lethargy, food cravings and the urge to curl up on the couch with a plate of cookies and a Snuggie until the lilacs bloom. “Winter blues” is one term for the milder form of this funk. More severe depression, strong enough to interfere with work, sleep or other functioning and possibly warrant clinical help, was identified in the 1980s as seasonal affective disorder, or SAD. They are both linked to light deprivation, which is thought to mess with the brain chemicals that influence moods and sleep patterns. Typically, winter depression reaches its full impact during the Northern Hemisphere’s dimmest period, when the sun’s low-slung path across the sky is so truncated that many people

Outdoor activities, such as jogging, can help battle mood problems (see story on this page). travel to and from work in darkness. For some sufferers, like Churchill, December offers enough merry distraction to push the problem off until January. For others, the condition exacerbates existing sadness or memories already associated with the holidays themselves. Some people start to feel twinges by Labor Day or even as early as midsummer, when the days first start imperceptibly shrinking. Experts estimate that these mood disturbances may affect 7 percent or
more of the population, though it’s hard to know how many people suffer at an unreported, subclinical level.
Trace the timing If you’ve experienced mood slumps of your own, one way to tell whether they’re seasonally influenced is to trace the timing, said Dr. Scott Crow, a psychiatry professor at the University of Minnesota who has focused on mood disorders. Seasonal mood sufferers start to feel better as the days lengthen and the sun’s

rays intensify. Until that solar help arrives, expert-endorsed treatments include the remedy that worked for Churchill, a special broadspectrum or natural-spectrum light designed to resemble sunlight. Preliminary research indicates that these lights can bring relief for people who sit in front of them, usually for half an hour first thing in the morning, at least a few days a week. Experts recommend using a light labeled 10,000 lux (a measure of light intensity). The Center for Environ-
mental Therapeutics (www. cet.org) recommends other criteria and sells a 12.5-inch-by-16-inch model for about $180. Other 10,000-lux models, many of them smaller, are available elsewhere online for less than $100. Most insurance policies won’t cover them. Other potential remedies include treatments used against regular clinical depression, such as psychotherapy and antidepressant medications. Exercise has been shown to help boost mood, especially in this case when performed outdoors. (See story,

late, and limit consumption to one ounce a day. Other foods that get thumbs up from natural food promoters: ■ Walnuts — A rich plant-based source of omega-3 fatty acids, essential for a healthy, happy brain. ■ Apples — These crisp, juicy ffruits are full of fibe fiber — about a quart quarter of our recom recommended daily intake. Fiber keeps your energy steady throughout the day and prevents you from feeling slug sluggish. ■ Turmeric — This bright yellow spice, one of the main ingredients in curry powder, is promoted as a powerful anti-inflammatory and mood-enhancer. ■ Shiitake mushrooms — Perrfect for a creamy, wintery soup and high in selenium. Low selenium levels are linked to anxiousness and irritability.
Shannon Hyland-Tassava tries to run up to 25 miles a week, year-round. It’s harder in winter — icy sidewalks, snowy trails — but she’s determined. As a sufferer of seasonal mood problems, Hyland-Tassava runs for her emotional as well as physical health. “Starting a few years ago, I just really started feeling the classic things you always hear about when it came to seasonal mood changes: more tired, more lethargic, more irritable, less motivated to be active and go out and do,” said Hyland-Tassava, 41, of Northfield, Minn. “In the spring and summer, I typically felt fantastic.” A couple of years ago, on the advice of her nurse-practitioner, she started using a broad-spectrum light box and found it helpful. Running is her other important therapy. “I get such benefit, mentally, from running outdoors,” said Hyland-Tassava, a psychologist and the author of The Essential Stay-at-Home Mom Manual (Booktrope Editions, 2011). Hyland-Tassava works as a life coach and often recommends outdoor activity for her clients. “I firmly believe in the power of exercise to affect mood positively, and there’s very strong research to support it.”
Research suggests that exercise can be as effective as medication in combating depression — and comes with positive side effects instead of negative ones, said Beth Lewis, a University of Minnesota psychologist who studies exercise psychology. Even the mildly melancholic can share in this prescription-free mood booster.
How much exercise? No need to train for a marathon: Even 150 minutes a week of moderateintensity activity (e.g., walking the dog) can provide “significant health benefits,” Lewis said. But studies show that only a small percentage of Americans do even that much. If you haven’t been active for a while, start small, Lewis suggested: “Getting out of the house for 10 minutes is something.” Since SAD (seasonal affective disorder) and winter blues are linked to loss of sunlight, logic suggests that midday outdoor exercise would be especially beneficial, although indoor exercise helps, too. Looking ahead to future winters, those who suffer from seasonal mood problems are better off forming an exercise habit long before the symptoms kick in. “Prevention is always better than treatment,” Lewis said.

Winter’s gray days and long nights can leave you feeling tired and unmotivated. Natural food advocates say these foods can help you boost your mood and eat away the winter blues: ■ Berries — Researchers at the Torrey Pines Institute for Molecular Studies in Florida claim that chemicals in blueberries, raspberries and strawberries bear a striking structural similarity to valporic acid, a widely used prescription mood-stabilizing drug. That’s in addition to the host of antioxidant properties and flavonoids such as anthocyanidins, which have been shown to boost brain function. ■ Green tea — The health benefits of green tea have been studied at length, but a 2009 study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition took a different approach and examined the possible cone ta health. ea t . nection with mental The result? In a study of about 1,060 elderly Japanese, a higher consumption as associated of green tea was with a lower prevalence of mptoms. depressive symptoms. ■ Vitamin ds D-rich foods — During the cold, grey w i n t e r months, when the sun is in hibernation or k at its rays weak best, getting enough vitamin D — also known as the sunshine vitamin — is particularly important. Dietary sources include salmon, herring, mackerel, sardines, fortified milk and orange juice, as well as cheese and egg yolks. ■ Foods high in folic acid and Vitamin B12 — Studies have shown that depressive patients have been found to have low levels of both folate and vitamin B12. Deficiency in either vita-
min can also lead to fatigue and weakness — never a good combination, but even less so during winter when we’re already feeling sluggish. So stock up on your dark, green leafy vegetables like spinach, as well as beans and legumes, which are likewise good sources of folic acid. Foods n B12 rich in include fish and shellfish, yogurtt and milk. ■ Dark colate chocolate is should — This come as no surprise, given the volumes off lit literature — along with anecdotal evidence — on the mood-enhancing effect of chocolate.
