Centrum Executive Director Rob Birman, left, confers with Martha Worthley, who is in charge of a new residency program for visual artists.


PORT TOWNSEND — Centrum will offer a residency program this fall for visual artists who are at the beginning of their careers. “We have several programs here but not much in the area of visual arts, so we wanted to change that,” said Rob Birman, the executive director of the arts organization based in Fort Worden State Park. “And the advent of the PDA gives us the opportunity to do this.” On May 1, the Fort Worden Lifelong Learning Public Development Authority will take over management of the park’s campus programs — with Centrum’s

festivals and workshops to be the centerpiece of those offerings — while State Parks continues to manage the rest of the park. The first emerging artists residency, for six young artists, will be from Oct. 4 to Nov. 4.

$500 stipend Each resident will receive a $500 stipend and have individual studio space as well as the opportunity to use the campus’ resources such as printmaking studios at Corvidae Press, one of Centrum’s longstanding partners. Housing in Centrum’s residency cabins and apartments will be shared, Birman said.

An exhibition and presentation by the artists at the Cotton Building, 607 Water St., is planned during the Nov. 1 Gallery Walk. “It will give them the opportunity to talk about their work with local patrons,” Birman said. The annual residency will engage visual artists from the Northwest, including residents of Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana. “Young artists need two things: time to develop ideas and a space where they can develop their own work,” Birman said. “We will provide them with a month to do this in the context of other artists who are in the same place.” TURN



PORT ANGELES — A series of winter storms this month has dampened summer drought concerns, with Olympic Mountain snowpack back to near-normal levels. Water content in the Olympic snowpack was 80 percent of normal Thursday, up from 24 percent Jan. 1 and 34 percent just three weeks ago, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service. “It puts us a whole lot closer to being back on track,” said Scott Pattee, water supply specialist with the Natural Resources Conservation Service in Mount Vernon.

‘Can live with that’ “Eighty percent? I think we can live with that. When we were 23 percent, it was a little scary.” A persistent ridge of high pressure over the eastern Pacific Ocean resulted in an unusually dry early winter. But a sequence of February storms raised a 50 percent statewide snowpack to 87 percent by Thursday. Pattee said the summer water supply should be OK “if we can maintain what we have” in the mountains. “The whole state is about the same,” he added. TURN

Pierce trial set for 3rd session BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT TOWNSEND — Attorneys for the prosecution and defense are preparing for a third go-around in the double-murder trial of Michael J. Pierce. The new month-long trial will begin at 9 a.m. Monday in Kitsap County Superior Court, 614 Division St., Port Orchard, with Judge Sally Olsen presiding. Pierce, 38, is accused of killing Pat and Janice Yarr of Quilcene and setting their house on fire to hide the deaths on March 18, 2009.

The cast of the ABC series arrived in Sydney this week to shoot an Australian episode.

MIROSLAV STANDERA, 95, a fighter pilot who fled Czechoslovakia to fight for the British and French air forces in World War II, has died. Council officials in his hometown, the southwest Czech city of Plzen, said he died Wednesday Mr. Standera but provided in 2013 no cause. Born a month before the end of World War I, Mr. Standera graduated from an aviation school but fled in 1939 following the country’s takeover by Nazi Germany. He joined France’s air force and fought the German invasion there in May 1940. He was seriously wounded during a dogfight a month later but safely crash-landed. The Czech Defense Ministry said Mr. Standera was the last surviving Czech pilot to have flown for France during the war. After France’s surrender, Mr. Standera became a founding member of the Royal Air Force’s No. 312 Fighter Squadron composed of Czechoslovak pilots; he and 87 countrymen served as RAF pilots during the Battle of Britain that year. Later in the war, he flew twin-engine fighter-bombers on night-time raids into France and Germany. He clocked a total of 1,320 hours of combat flying time.

Traffic study: Older drivers less likely to be in accident BY JOAN LOWY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — Safety researchers expressed concern a decade ago that traffic accidents would increase as the nation’s aging population swelled the number of older drivers on the road. Now, it appears they’ve been proved wrong. Today’s drivers aged 70 and older are less likely to be involved in crashes than previous generations and are less likely to be killed or seriously injured if they

do crash, according to a study released Thursday by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. That’s because vehicles are getting safer and seniors are generally getting healthier, the institute said.

Transition in 1990s The marked shift began taking hold in the mid-1990s and indicates that growing ranks of aging drivers as baby boomers head into their retirement years aren’t making U.S. roads deadlier.

Traffic fatalities overall in the U.S. have declined to levels not seen since the late 1940s, and accident rates have come down for other drivers as well. But since 1997, older drivers have enjoyed bigger declines as measured by both fatal crash rates per driver and per vehicle miles driven than middle-age drivers, defined in the study as ages 35 to 54. From 1997 to 2012, fatal crash rates per licensed driver fell 42 percent for older drivers and 30 percent for middle-aged ones.

A NORTHERN CALIFORNIA convenience store that sold the sole winning ticket to the $425 million Powerball jackpot received a $1 million check Thursday. The California Lottery presented the check to Parmeet Singh, whose family owns Dixon Landing Chevron in Milpitas, a city about 10 miles north of San Jose. In California, retailers who sell winning jackpot tickets receive a share of the prize money up to $1 million. Singh said his father, Kulwinder Singh, owns the store but was en route to India and wasn’t expected to hear about the $1 million prize until after he landed in New Delhi.

WILDLIFE EXPERTS CUT away more than 280 feet of commercial fishing line being dragged by an endangered right whale off the Georgia coast, though some of the heavy rope had to be left tangled in the whale’s mouth, officials said Thursday. Entanglement in commercial fishing gear and collisions with ships off the East Coast are considered the greatest threats to the right whale’s survival. Experts estimate only about 450 of the large whales remain. Each winter, they migrate to the warmer waters off Georgia and Florida to give birth to their calves.

AN OHIO POLICE officer whose cruiser slammed into a stopped car in the middle of an intersection tried to veer away but couldn’t avoid the crash that killed six members of a family, and there is no basis to charge him, authorities announced Thursday. Investigators concluded that the other driver entered a Columbus-area intersection despite a red light and was struck on the side by an Upper Arlington police cruiser that was responding to a middle-of-the-night robbery call with its lights and sirens activated. The Oct. 18 crash killed the driver, his wife and four of their daughters, and the police officer was seriously hurt.

MEXICO’S MAIN LEFTIST party has submitted a proposal in the Senate to legalize the medicinal use of marijuana. The bill introduced by the Democratic Revolution Party also proposes increasing the maximum possession limit for personal use from 5 grams to 30 grams. Under current federal law, possession of up to 5 grams is decriminalized but not legal, and can still be subject to non-prison sanctions. The bill introduced Thursday would also allow state governments to regulate marijuana production under the new framework.

Senator: Wild Olympics won’t pass this year Murray gives glimpse at D.C. matters



Wild Olympics legislation has little chance of passage during the 2014 congressional session, the bill’s sponsors in the House and Senate say. Sen. Patty Murray, D-Seattle, sponsor of the legislation in the Senate, sat down Wednesday for a brief interview with the Peninsula Daily News during a visit to Port Angeles to dedicate an expanded veterans clinic at 1114 Georgiana St. Murray also discussed federal banking regulations related to Washington state’s new marijuanalegalization law, pledging to monitor the impact of the law before she considers proposing legislative changes in banking regulations. She introduced her Wild Olympics legislation as the Wild Olympics Wilderness and Wild and Scenic Rivers Act of 2014.

Patty Murray, D-Whidbey Island, speaks during a grand opening tour of the VA’s North Olympic Peninsula Clinic in Port Angeles on Wednesday. by the Senate, according to, an unaffiliated, legislative-transparency website. Only 3 percent of all bills introduced in Congress from 2011-13 were enacted. Murray, who introduced the Wild Olympics bill Jan. 16, said Wednesday it probably will not be passed out of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, its first stop. “This is probably highly unlikely,” she said, adding that there has been turnover on the Senate committee.

PORT ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201D; More questions than answers remained after the third of five meetings of representatives of three business groups working to explore consolidating their efforts to more effectively promote economic development. Representatives from the Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce, Port Angeles Business Association and Port Angeles Downtown Association met for two hours Wednesday afternoon with facilitator Jim Haguewood, former head of the Clallam County Economic Development Council and now a business and economic development consultant. The group decided to further examine â&#x20AC;&#x153;strategic areasâ&#x20AC;? that encompass four topics: promotion and marketing, education and workforce, quality of place and organization.

Get-together TBD Under the informal moniker of â&#x20AC;&#x153;PA United,â&#x20AC;? group members scheduled March 12 for another get-together at a site to be determined, and they have yet to schedule a final meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The final question to the group is going to be, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;OK, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done this work, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got this strategy,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? Haguewood said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The goals are, how are we going to organize ourselves to get that done? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The group could decide that certain organizations take certain assignments, or

they are going to say maybe we need to figure out how to work stronger together than we are apart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The other question will be, as the strategy gets developed, what are the additional functions and activities that the community needs to be able to achieve those goals?â&#x20AC;?

Chart distributed A chart distributed by Haguewood showed the chamber with 12 â&#x20AC;&#x153;business organization functionsâ&#x20AC;? including visitor center operation, tourism marketing and operating a community website, areas the group coordinates by itself. The chamber shares community marketing with the downtown association. The downtown association had 10 functions, including holding the business and occupation tax-related Main Street Tax Credit Program, the Main Street Program, a youth volunteer initiative and direct business support as singular functions and sharing event coordination and development with the chamber. The business association had four organizational functions, holding entrepreneurship by itself, sharing community and business education and advocacy with the chamber, and sharing business networking events with the other two groups. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a duplication of effort that is causing groups to be non-efficient or not as efficient as they can be,â&#x20AC;? Chamber Executive Director Russ Veenema said. For purposes of economic

development, Veenema said, the community needs â&#x20AC;&#x153;to be honest about our product.â&#x20AC;? He recalled a potential investor in the area believing the workforce he needed was available. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, and the entrepreneur abandoned his plans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very important that we be honest about our workforce and what we can offer as a community,â&#x20AC;? Veenema said. Tourism is â&#x20AC;&#x153;icing on the cake,â&#x20AC;? chamber alternate Todd Gubler added. A thriving area has businesses that are visited and offer employment yearround, he said. BRP Enterprises owner Ed Bedford, a business association alternate, said the group needs to identify community strengths and weaknesses to focus efforts on eliminating those weaknesses.

Trial: Juror may have

witnessed defendant CONTINUED FROM A1 That decision came after Pierce’s attorneys successfully argued that his postarrest statements should have been suppressed. His first retrial in July in Jefferson County was stopped in its fourth day of testimony when a juror revealed that she may have seen Pierce walking by the side of U.S. Highway 101 one evening, though she could not recall the exact date. Defense attorney Richard Davies had requested a change of venue prior to the retrial that was opposed by Jefferson County Prosecutor Scott Rosekrans and denied by Judge Keith Harper. After the juror came forward, Rosekrans withdrew opposition to a venue change, and it was scheduled in Port Orchard.

Little new Neither side expected the presentation of the case to differ substantially from the first two tries. “He is charged with the same crimes as before,” Davies said. “Only this time, he will be judged by a jury of his peers.” Said Deputy Prosecutor Chris Ashcraft: “It’s not going to be much different from the other two.” The trial will begin with a series of pretrial motions, Ashcraft said, with 70 jurors to be brought in Monday afternoon and 70 more Tuesday. Opening statements could begin as early as Wednesday, Ashcraft said. The trial will take about a month, he predicted. While both attorneys expect the presentation of the case to differ little from past trials, both have added witnesses. Davies has listed five new witnesses. Ashcraft said the prosecution may oppose them. The prosecution has indicated that it wants to call Lisa Baker, an acquaintance of Pierce’s girlfriend, Tiffany Rondeau, saying that Pierce “is guilty, he was high on meth, he went over

Pierce in November. Clerk Jami Hetzel is in the foreground. there to rob them, didn’t get what he wanted, shot them and lit the place on fire to cover his tracks,” according to a motion from Davies. Davies called Baker’s statement “hearsay.” Also uncertain is the testimony of Laura Meynberg of Port Townsend, the juror who said she may have seen Pierce on the night of the murder but did not recall the incident until she heard the opening statements. At the time, Rosekrans said he wanted to call Meynberg as a witness. Ashcraft said Meynberg’s appearance will be determined during Monday’s pretrial hearing, while Davies called her previous recollections “pretty sketchy.”

The county is paying for both the defense and the prosecution, with Davies’ compensation to be as much as $92,604 for the new trial, according to a measure passed by the county commissioners Aug. 19. Pierce’s incarceration costs the county $106.47 per day at a yearly cost of $38,861. The county reported $53,062 in expenditures for the retrial, with the greatest item $33,568 for public defense charges. The remainder included costs of witnesses, meal reimbursement and miscellaneous expenses. Superior Court Clerk Ruth Gordon reported a $907 cost in assembling the jury.

County costs

Upfront trial costs

Jefferson County received $197,000 from the state’s Extraordinary Criminal Justice Costs Act that went toward the $370,883 expenses of the first trial. The county could not provide a total cost for the expense of the first retrial, although departmental documents indicate it approached $100,000, not including salaries. There are no projections as to how much the current trial will cost, but expenses for both trials are not reimbursable, according to County Administrator Philip Morley.

Morley said Kitsap County will not be reimbursed for incarceration or judicial costs due to a reciprocity agreement between the two counties. “Everyone talks about the cost, but they never say anything about justice,” Rosekrans said. Added Ashcraft: “When we are in the middle of the trial, we never think about the cost.” Pierce remained in the Jefferson County jail Thursday, where he has been incarcerated since March 1 awaiting a new trial. He will be moved to the Kitsap County jail.

Art: Selection process CONTINUED FROM A1 Eighteen educators from Northwest colleges, universities and art schools have been invited to nominate two to three candidates who may then be invited to apply. Program manager Martha Worthley said she expected 50 candidates for the residency with the six finalists chosen on the basis of their resumes, artist statements and slides of their work. From these materials, an independent committee will select the finalists.

The only requirement is that candidates are college graduates of a Bachelor of Arts or Master of Fine Arts program and have been out of school for no more than five years, Worthley said. Birman said the program initially will follow the invitation format but will allow direct applications in the future. “We are doing it this way at first because we didn’t want to be overwhelmed by applications until we got our bearings,” he said. “This is part of our new strategic plan to make better use of the facilities during the ‘shoulder season,’”

he added, referring to the time between summer and spring workshops. Artists, writers and musicians can pay for Centrum residency without going through an application or invitation process, Birman said. The tuition is $400 weekly, and residencies are granted on a space-available basis. For more information, visit

Shop clerk detains alleged shoplifter with duct tape BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

CLALLAM BAY — Cipriano Ojeda was less than two hours into his shift at Weel Road Deli in Clallam Bay when he became, as his boss describes it, a hero. When he arrived Wednesday, Ojeda, 46, didn’t know he soon would be grappling with an alleged shoplifter in a fight that would end with a knife wound on Ojeda’s forehead and the culprit bound with duct tape on the sidewalk outside the small shop. “In my eyes, Cipriano is a hero,” said Marcia Hess, who has owned the deli at 17203 state Highway 112 since 2011. At about 1:45 p.m. Wednesday, Ojeda saw a man, later identified as Alexander Greene, 28, of Kingston, walking out of the store with a six-pack of beer and three bottles of malt liquor tucked in his backpack, according to the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office. Ojeda confronted Greene, grabbed for his backpack and followed him outside the store, where the two men struggled, eventually falling to the ground,

the Sheriff’s Office said. Deputies said Greene brandished a knife and swung it at Ojeda, cutting his forehead. The store clerk grabbed Greene’s hand and took the knife from him before overpowering him and pinning him to the ground. When deputies arrived at the deli about 10 minutes later, they found Greene lying on the sidewalk outside the store with his hands and feet bound with duct tape.

tion of one count each of first-degree robbery, seconddegree assault and thirddegree theft. Ojeda was taken to Forks Community Hospital for his forehead wound, the Sheriff’s Office said, and was no longer listed on the hospital’s patient roster Thursday. He was not available for comment Thursday. Hess said she has personally stopped between three and four shoplifters since she’s owned the Weel Road Deli. “I wouldn’t say that’s a big problem, since I’ve had the store for almost three years,” she said. Although Ojeda technically broke a store rule by chasing after the alleged shoplifter, Hess said, she has no reprimands planned for him. “In fact, I gave him the rest of the day off — paid,” Hess added. “I’m really happy to have him. He’s pretty protective.”

“We actually had help from another business’ employee down the sidewalk that helped duct-tape the suspect,” Hess said. “It was a team effort, [though] Cipriano definitely had him pinned down.” The Sheriff’s Office said a Clallam Bay Corrections Center officer and medics from Clallam County Fire District No. 5 also helped detain Greene until depu________ ties arrived.

Clallam EDC board mulls interim director BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — The board of the Clallam County Economic Development Council will hear more about the preferred candidate for interim executive director at its March meeting, board President Brian Kuh said Thursday. Kuh said he is declining to name the candidate until negotiations between the Economic Development Council, or EDC, and the individual are further along. “I don’t want to put his name out there yet,” Kuh said. He told EDC board members at their Thursday meeting, though, that the man has lived in Sequim for the past 20 years and most recently worked at a capital management firm in Seattle. The candidate is a graduate of Yale University and Cornell Business School, Kuh said, and has economic development experience.

“We’re pretty fortunate to have him as a potential resource,” Kuh said. This candidate and another person from Sequim approached the EDC about interest in the position, Kuh said, adding that there was no formal job posting associated with the position. The EDC is seeking a new interim executive director after Tim Smith, a Port Angeles resident and retired city economic development director, resigned Jan. 25 after 28 days on the job. Smith cited difficulty gaining a clear direction from the EDC board on how members want to move forward. Smith was hired to the interim position under a $29-per-hour, 120-day contract after longtime EDC director Linda Rotmark resigned. Kuh said the hiring process for a permanent director is on hold until an upcoming regional workshop, meant to act as a summit

The Olympic Resource Protection Council filed a petition Jan. 21 requesting that Ecology amend the rule and claimed the department misused a statutory justification known as “overriding consideration of public interest” when it set the minimum flow for the Dungeness basin. Implemented Jan. 2 last year, the water rule sets minimum flow levels for the river and its tributaries. The rule covers the eastern half of Water Resource Inventory Area 18, from Bagley Creek to Sequim Bay.

Zen meditation retreat beckons Bill would allow to those wanting to sit, explore OMC greater reimbursement


PORT ANGELES — On the bluff overlooking downtown sits an open community, a haven welcoming anyone wanting to sit and explore. And starting Sunday, this place known as Murre Cottage will be the home of a Rohatsu Sesshin, a meditation retreat hosted by Bill Larson and his wife, Kristen Larson, a Zen Buddhist master. Yes, the Larsons open their home to anybody who wishes to sit in meditation during the sesshin — Japanese for “collecting the heart-mind” — each morning, afternoon and evening this Sunday through next Saturday, March 1. During next week’s retreat and on Saturday mornings year-round, there is no cost to meditate at Murre Cottage, nor to walk the labyrinth that is the Larsons’ compact front yard. But what if you don’t know how to meditate? The best way to learn, Kristen believes, is to sit down on the cushion — or on a chair, if that suits your body better — and let the questions arise. Zen meditation is about self-exploration, and in the community that comes together at Murre Cottage, “there’s a lot of support,”





Kristen and Bill Larson will host a week-long Rohatsu Sesshin, a Zen Buddhist retreat, in their Port Angeles home beginning Sunday. Kristen added. She estimates that the NO (North Olympic) Sangha, a local Buddhist group, has about 20 members who sit regularly here.

Schedule The forthcoming sesshin is one way people can look into meditation practice, since the schedule offers four periods through the day and night when Murre Cottage’s sitting rooms are open. From Sunday through next Friday, Feb. 28, open-

ing chants will begin at 6 a.m., to be followed by sitting and walking meditation till 6:30 a.m. Another period will be open from 11:30 a.m. till 12:30 p.m., the third session will start at 4:30 p.m., and the fourth will come at 7:30 p.m. Kristen will give an educational talk at 5 p.m. daily. On March 1, the last day, opening chants will start at 8 a.m., with sitting and walking meditation till 9:30 a.m. A silent coffee break comes at 9:30 a.m., while a silent lunch break of vegetarian soup and bread is set for 11:30 a.m. Meditation begins again at 12:30 p.m. Kristen offers an informative talk at 1 p.m., and more meditation and labyrinth walking will go from 1:30 p.m. till 2:45 p.m. The Larsons, married 32 years and living in Murre Cottage for 17, also welcome people wishing to meditate any Saturday between 8 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. Friendships have flourished here, said Bill, adding, “When they’re here, they’re talking a blue streak.” “When it’s time to talk,” put in Kristen. Those who come during the meditation periods can

count on quiet in the sitting room, with its traditional Buddhist altar and Japanese garden outside the sliding glass doors. Kristen has been a serious student of meditation since 1989. Her teacher was the late Pat Hawk, a Roman Catholic priest and a Zen master. The couple have four Zen retreats at their home, “and they’re always an adventure,” Kristen said. “They’re always very different and very individual.” Finding Murre Cottage isn’t simple, however. It’s off of Pine Street a few minutes’ drive from downtown, but the Larsons encourage visitors to phone or email first for directions and meditation times: 360-452-5534 or There’s no such thing as a stranger here, added Bill, a retired Army colonel who is also the former skipper of the tall ship Lady Washington, the official ship of the state of Washington. He and his wife aren’t worried that their place will get too crowded. They have plenty of cushions, stools and chairs, and “we accommodate whatever comes up,” Kristen said. “It always seems to work out.”


PORT ANGELES –– Olympic Medical Center officials are lobbying state representatives to pass a bill that would allow the uniquely classified hospital to be reimbursed for treating patients insured through Medicare and Medicaid at a par with other types of hospitals. “We really are struggling at current levels, and it really threatens the services if we can’t afford them,” CEO Eric Lewis told commissioners Wednesday. The 80-bed Port Angeles hospital is one of just four hospitals in the state designated as a “sole community hospital.” Those hospitals are reimbursed by Medicare through the state at a fixed rate of 55 percent of costs. “That means as a hospital, we spend a dollar, and we get 55 cents back from Medicaid. It’s hard to make that up on volume,” Lewis said. A bill that would up that reimbursement to sole community hospitals to 70 percent of costs passed the state Senate on Feb. 14, and its companion bill is being considered in the House, where Lewis said it needs “serious work” to get passed. The bill is co-sponsored by 24th District Reps. Steve Tharinger, D-Dungeness, and Kevin Van De Wege, D-Sequim, but Lewis called for a push of emails, letters and phone calls to other leaders in the House, particularly Rep. Eileen Cody, D-West Seattle, who chairs the House Health Care and Wellness Committee. “We need her to move our bill,” Lewis said.

Changing the reimbursement rate would add roughly $1 million to the dwindling revenue of OMC, Lewis said. The budget is further drained, Lewis said, by $3.5 million of Medicare cuts from the federal level that will hit the hospital this year. The four sole community hospitals in the state, those rural health care centers with more than 25 beds, are OMC, Grays Harbor Community Hospital, Providence Centralia and Samaritan Healthcare in Moses Lake. However, with the Port Angeles and Grays Harbor hospitals both in the same legislative district, Lewis said, only six representatives have active interests in the bill. The Senate bill excludes changing Grays Harbor’s reimbursement rate, limiting the increase to public hospitals. Grays Harbor Community Hospital is run by a private nonprofit governing board.

‘Fair share’ The gap between costs and Medicare/Medicaid reimbursements is made up by charging more to patients with commercial insurance, Lewis said. He added that 76 percent of OMC patients are insured through Medicare or Medicaid, while less than 20 percent use commercial insurance. “People with commercial insurance pay more than cost because we have to balance our budget,” Lewis said. “If Medicare and Medicaid can pay their fair share, then we could reduce the cost to commercial insurance.”

State health exchange rolls out latest ads BY DONNA GORDON BLANKINSHIP THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SEATTLE — Depending on your age, you may find the new commercials promoting the Washington health exchange laugh-outloud funny, somewhat amusing or just plain cringe-worthy. That was — more or less — the intention of the new campaign debuting on TV, radio, online and in print Wednesday, said exchange spokesman Michael Marchand. The exchange wanted to catch the attention of young people between the ages of 18 and 34 who are essential to making the exchange financially viable. Of the 90,000 people who have bought private insurance through the exchange so far, only 23 percent are in the desired 18-to-34 age group. Young people tend to be healthier, and the Kaiser Family Foundation estimates that they need to make up about 40 percent of enrollment in the federal health care program to balance out the higher costs of insuring older, sicker people.

Rappin’ on exchange The video and audio ads in Washington feature two new characters: rappers. In the commercials, they interview real users of the Washington health insurance exchange to get some ideas for lyrics. The subjects — who Marchand said are real people who now have insurance in Washington state thanks to the exchange — seem awkward and a little embarrassed by the attention. One ad shows the rapper interviewing a 26-year-old woman who bought insurance when she was no lon-

ger eligible for her parents’ coverage. The other shows a couple who were previously turned down for insurance because of pre-existing conditions and paid for more than $200,000 worth of care out of their own pockets. Marchand said the young people who checked out the ads before they aired found them very funny and so did the people featured in them. Some folks older than 40 may not be amused. “We have a lot of outtakes that we’re going to be sharing on social media,” said Marchand, 47. “A lot of this stuff was very, very funny.” The ads will run through the end of March — when the open enrollment period ends — on 17 television stations in the Seattle-Tacoma, Spokane and Yakima media markets, as well as cable TV. Radio ads in both English and Spanish will run on more than 30 radio stations across the state. New print ads in English, Chinese, Korean, Russian, Spanish and Vietnamese are running in 25 publications through Washington, but most won’t mirror the broadcast ads. The exchange has launched several other marketing initiatives to reach out to young people without insurance. They include partnerships with a major music promoter, eight roller derby teams and four junior ice hockey teams. The Washington exchange has a goal of selling private insurance to 340,000 people by the end of March, according to a federal report of enrollment targets.

River center seeks new moniker for fundraiser PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

SEQUIM — The Dungeness River Audubon Center wants to rename its annual fundraiser, Dungeness Spring Fling, and is asking the public to help. The phrase has become a cliché, said Powell Jones, executive director of the center at Railroad Bridge Park, 2151 W. Hendrickson Road. Contestants may submit as many alternative names as they wish before the deadline, March 14. Team leaders from Spring Fling 2013 will review the entries, and the river center board will select the wining entry. The winner will receive free admission to Spring Fling special events this year.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Friday/Saturday, February 21-22, 2014 PAGE


Some ’bot to watch over me BY STEVEN KURUTZ FOR A MONTH now, I have been spying on my apartment. I have spied in the afternoon, and I have spied late at night. Since I can see most clearly into the living room, my voyeurism has been focused there. Often I see only an empty room that could use a little art on the walls. Sometimes I catch the cat sleeping on the rug. One night last week, I watched my girlfriend watch TV. Before you call me a stalker, know that my girlfriend has been spying on me, too. When I worked from home a few weeks ago, I received an email that read, “Chew, chew, chew.” It turned out that she could hear and see me munching on a salad from her office — six miles away. Something called Piper has enabled this self-monitoring. Part of the wave of smarthome products flooding the market, Piper is equipped with a wide-angle camera that allows users to see live video of their homes on their smartphones, from anywhere in the world. The device also has sensors that detect motion and temperature, a microphone, a siren and the capability of recording short videos and controlling lights and appliances remotely. Piper is advertised as a home security and automation device, and it is one of several new or forthcoming products that monitor the home. Others include Canary, a similar camera-equipped security device, and Mother, which uses attachable motion sensors called “cookies” to collect data on things like whether someone has flossed or taken a cholesterol pill (and it nags them if they haven’t). Companies like Verizon offer monthly subscription packages that promise to create an all-seeing, all-knowing home. Even the humble doorbell has been wired for surveillance: with Doorbot, smartphone users can see who’s at their front door and answer (or not), whether they are at home or across the globe. Surveillance inside the home isn’t new.

Nanny cams have been around since the 1990s, and wealthy homeowners have long had video security systems, while laptops with built-in cameras can be hacked to act as cheap spy cams. But devices like Piper and Canary aim to democratize and even glamorize home surveillance. Technologically sophisticated, relatively inexpensive (Canary is $199; Piper starts at $239) and alluringly designed in that sleek, Apple-like way, the devices beckon to our tech-obsessed culture. Last year, the makers of Canary raised nearly $2 million during an Indiegogo campaign, a record for the crowdfunding site. Home-monitoring devices like these are appealing because they are not just smart, but unobtrusive, said Ayesha Khanna, the founder and co-director of the Hybrid Reality Institute, a research and advisory group focused on emerging technologies. “It’s quietly humming away, taking in data,” Khanna said. “You don’t have to do anything. Something that makes your life more convenient, safer and more secure has value.” But as the monitoring that is now so much a part of public life moves inside the home, one won-

Canary, parents can have visual confirmation that their kids arrived home safely from school. But they will also have proof of transgressions that happen at home. What will become of the parents-are-away house party, a teenage rite of passage? “Risky Business” will have to be reimagined for the Piper era. Ure has three daughters, one of whom is 17 and still lives at home, and he said Piper gives him a reassuring sense of parental calm. Although his youngest daughter had a very different reaction, he admitted: “She was a bit irritated that we were keeping an eye on her. But she got used to it.” Torin Monahan, an associate professor of communication studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the co-author of SuperVision, a book about surveillance in society, said that today’s youth are almost inured to being monitored, particularly when it comes to social media. But the justifications for doing so in this case are questionable, he said, because they are fearbased. And because of that there are developmental implications: “We don’t allow youth as much agency as perhaps they need to develop identities fully apart from their families.” “Invariably people will spy on family members,” Monahan added. “I worry it could undermine trust relationships in families.” Adam Sager, a security-industry veteran and one of the creators of Canary, disagrees with that assessment. “The way we look at it — and we feel strongly about this — we believe Canary brings families and people closer,” Sager said. In the modern world of dispersed clans and anonymous urban living, Sager argued, the social fabric has frayed and “there’s a disconnect.”

Following in former U.S. Rep. Norm Dicks’ wake, Rep. Derek Kilmer has reintroduced the Wild Olympics Wilderness and Wild and Scenic Rivers Act of 2014, which is guaranteed to permanently block beneficial and multiple-use stewardship of our national forests.

Rid the entrenched Regarding the letter blaming Republicans for the loss of and lack of jobs and the slow recovery, etc. [“GOP Criticized,” Peninsula Voices, Feb. 4], the more I think about the writer’s comments the more I have a problem with his logic. Since the out-of-work,

the underemployed and the poor are known to support and vote for members of the Democratic Party and are considered to be part of the Democratic Party’s base, it would seem that Republicans doing anything to increase the number of people who vote for Democrats are shooting themselves in the foot. I know that Republicans aren’t always the brightest bulbs in the world, but I doubt that they are as stupid as the writer’s logic would suggest. Neither party has done anything about reducing government spending and reducing the overall debt that is going to be handed down to our children and their children. The cost of medical care is going up, and the quality of medical care is going down. What is needed is to get rid of the entrenched establishment and replace them with people who would reduce the cost and presence of government in our lives. Jim Hurley, Sequim

Presidential legacies: history reconfigured I FOUND MYSELF sitting on a bar stool last winter next to Robert Caro at an Irish wake in Times Square. I had an overpowering urge to grab Caro’s arm and shake him. For the love of Pete, I Maureen wanted to yelp at the 78-year- Dowd old historian who has spent 38 years chronicling Lyndon Johnson in more than 3,388 pages: Was he ever going to get to Vietnam? But the shy, bespectacled writer picking at his hors d’oeuvres did not look like the sort of man who could be rushed. As Adam Nagourney wrote in The New York Times on Sunday, Luci Baines Johnson and other members of LBJ’s shrinking circle are pushing to broaden the lens on the president’s legacy so that it is not merely viewed “through the prism of a failed war.” They are using the 50th anniversary of Johnson’s more impressive domestic policies — including the Civil Rights Act, the Clean Air Act and Medicare — to yank the focus away from “the agony of Vietnam” and “his cross,” as his daughter calls it. “Nobody wanted that war less than Lyndon Johnson,” the 66-year-old Luci said, adding that he tried mightily to get out. Maybe ratcheting up the war with more than 500,000 troops and sending so many young Americans to their deaths halfway around the world based on chest-thumping advice and a naive theory of democratic dominoes was a deterrent to getting out. In the new Broadway play with Bryan Cranston as LBJ, “All The Way,” by Robert Schenkkan, there’s a scene where Robert

McNamara pushes Johnson to order “retaliatory” airstrikes after the Potemkin Gulf of Tonkin. Johnson was determined not to be seen as weak, not to “cut and run” — the same phrase later used by W. about Iraq when he was determined not to be seen as a wimp and began sending so many young Americans to their deaths halfway around the world based on chest-thumping advice and a naive theory of democratic dominoes. Asked by a reporter about Iraq recently, W.’s eyes flashed and he replied, “I am not happy.” He shouldn’t be. Afghanistan, which he abandoned to pursue a phony “retaliatory” war in Iraq, is crumbling despite all the money, muscle and blood we have poured into it, with our runaway fruitcake puppet Hamid Karzai fiddling while the Taliban burns, vowing to run America out just as they did the Russians and waging vicious attacks on women. In corrupt and violent Iraq, women are getting detained illegally and tortured. The country is awash in a blood-dimmed tide, with nearly 9,000 killed last year and almost 1,000 killed last month, as alQaida and another jihadist group fight for supremacy. In Falluja, the city where nearly 100 American soldiers died in the fiercest fighting of the war, the black insurgent flag now flies over buildings. With the help of his own personal librarian, Laura, W. has been trying to reframe his legacy to take the focus off his botched wars, just like LBJ’s family. His presidential library highlights his work on AIDS in Africa, belatedly tapering the roles of his sulfurous regents, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld. With Laura at his side, W. spent a long time chatting with

reporters on the way to Nelson Mandela’s funeral, putting his own spin on his presidency. The Texan who hated being “put on the couch,” as he called it, said he had a strategy to see into Vladimir Putin’s soul that entailed getting his attention by asking him, at their first meeting, about something he had read, that his mother had a cross that was blessed in Jerusalem. The Russian leader told him the breakup of the Soviet Union was the worst thing that had ever happened. Tell it to Ukraine, W. dryly noted. Just as LBJ observed that the two things that make politicians more stupid than anything else are sex and envy, W. said that he was not surprised by how Putin evolved because the three things that can change someone are “a love of power, wealth and sex.” He said that since his heart surgery, he was spending a lot of time painting skulls. Animal skulls, Laura quickly interjected. He continued his campaign to downplay the influence of Cheney, stressing that he had “lots of advisers.” Asked how much he sees Cheney, he said “never,” and asserted that he had never been that close to his vice president and the age difference precluded a friendship. So he let an acquaintance ruin his presidency? But just as LBJ will always be yoked to Vietnam and McNamara, 43 will always be yoked to his careless misadventures in Iraq and Afghanistan and to Cheney. W. should know: Some landscapes cannot be painted over.

Obama ‘wreckovery’ stimulated nightmare ON FEB. 17, 2009, President Barack Obama promised the sun and the moon and the stars. That was the day, five years ago, when he signed the $800 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. President Modesty called Michelle it “the most Malkin sweeping economic recovery package in our history.” He promised “unprecedented transparency and accountability.” He claimed the spending would lift “two million Americans from poverty.” Ready for the reality smackdown? The actual cost of the $800 billion pork-laden stimulus has ballooned to nearly $2 trillion. At the time of the law’s signing, the unemployment rate hovered near 8 percent. Obama’s egghead economists projected that the jobless rate would never rise above 8 percent and would plunge to 5 percent by December 2013. The actual jobless rate in January was 6.6 percent, with an abysmal labor force participation rate of 63 percent (a teeny uptick from December, but still at a four-decade low). Five years after the Recovery Act, 10.2 million people are out of work. The number of able-bodied Americans who have simply given up looking for work or are “not in the labor force [but] who currently want a job” has exploded. By some estimates, a record 90 million-plus people are hopelessly sitting on the sidelines. The unemployment rate for black Americans is 12.1 percent: nearly double the national rate. The Obama campaign excoriated President George W. Bush when it exceeded 10 percent

under his watch. After $150 billion in stimulus and other spending on green energy boondoggles, what does the White House have to show for it? According to The Green Corruption Files blog, 32 Obamabacked environmental firms have gone bankrupt as of February 2014. In addition, 22 other Obama green energy projects are now in dire financial trouble. Unprecedented transparency? Section 1513 of the Recovery Act required the White House to submit a progress report every three months. Last year, blogger Doug Powers noted: “Under their own guidelines, the administration should have released 14 of these reports by now, but they’ve only submitted eight of them for public review.” Obama promised an avalanche of “shovel-ready” jobs to build vital infrastructure before signing the Recovery Act. Instead, stimulus money went to wasteful makework and nonwork, including bridges to nowhere; a California project to photograph ants; a University of North Carolina computerized dance program; a privately owned martini bar and Brazilian steakhouse in Missouri; a bogus New Hampshire beauty school; and renovations to Vice President Joe Biden’s favorite Amtrak train station in Delaware. Somehow, stimulus “Sheriff” Biden overlooked the hundreds of millions in stimulus money steered to General Services Administrations junkets in Las Vegas and Hawaii, ghost congressional districts, dead people, and those ubiquitous stimulus propaganda road signs stamped with the shovel-ready logo. In 2012, Ohio State University economics professor Bill Dupor reported that more than three-quarters of the jobs created or saved by the stimulus were government jobs. Dupor and another colleague

also concluded that the massive wealth redistribution scheme “destroyed/forestalled roughly one million private sector jobs” by siphoning tax dollars “to offset state revenue shortfalls and Medicaid increases rather than boost private sector employment.” In 2011, at a rare meeting of his Jobs and Competitiveness Council, Obama turned his “shovel-ready” vow into a punchline: “Shovel-ready was not as, uh, shovel-ready as we expected,” he cracked with a sheepish grin. The dog-and-pony jobs council, led by GE’s Jeffrey Immelt, giggled and cackled at Obama’s snark. More forgotten insult to grievous injury: the telling moment when New York Times columnist David Brooks giggled on Jim Lehrer’s PBS show that Obama had told him off the record in 2009 that the shovel-ready promise was a crock, but that he sat on the truth until the Times’ Peter Baker reported the admission more than a year later in October 2010. While the lapdogs of the Fourth Estate snicker along with the White House about their lies and cover-up, the Wreckovery Act wreckage continues to pile up. And now the White House wants more money to burn for Porkulus Redux. Retiring Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., was right when he warned five years ago that the “morally reprehensible” stimulus represented “the worst act of generational theft in our nation’s history.” It’s no joke. It’s a $2 trillion travesty built on criminal government malpractice. Take that and shovel it.

Probe sought in firing of Hanford whistle-blowers BY NICHOLAS K. GERANIOS THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SPOKANE — U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., wants an investigation into the treatment of whistle-blowers at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation after two were fired in the past five months after raising safety concerns about the construction of a $13 billion plant to treat the site’s most dangerous radioactive wastes. Wyden’s office said Thursday that he will ask the Government Accountability Office to investigate both the pattern of contractor retaliation against whistle-blowers and the U.S. Department of Energy’s lack of response to those actions. “The decision to fire yet another Hanford whistle-blower shows that nothing has changed at the Energy Department when it comes to stifling dissent,” Wyden said in a news release this week. The goal of an investigation is to “personally hold accountable DOE officials for the unchecked retaliation against whistle-blowers who have revealed major, legitimate risks to public safety,” said Wyden, long a critic of Hanford operations. Donna Busche, manager of environmental and nuclear safety at the Hanford Waste Treatment Plant, was fired Tuesday morning by URS Corp. Walter Tamosaitis, who also worked at the waste treatment plant construction site and raised safety concerns about the plant, was fired by URS in October. URS Corp. said Busche was fired for reasons unrelated to the safety concerns. The safety concerns raised by the whistle-blowers had helped lead to a halt of construction at the plant. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz had met with both Busche and Tamosaitis in June to discuss their safety concerns.

The plant is being built by private contractors Bechtel National Inc. and URS to treat Hanford’s 53 million gallons of high-level nuclear waste. “Safety and quality are core values of the WTP project,” Bechtel said in a news release Thursday. “We encourage and expect everyone at WTP to raise concerns, and we rely upon them to help surface and resolve issues.” Hanford, located near Richland,is operated by the Energy Department, which hires private contractors to perform much of the work. The waste treatment plant construction has been plagued with safety, design and quality assurance issues as well as significant delays, with construction costs skyrocketing from an estimated $4.6 billion to more than $13.4 billion, Wyden said.

One of a kind The one-of-a-kind plant is being built to convert the waste into glasslike logs for permanent disposal underground. The sprawling Hanford site was created by the Manhattan Project as the nation raced to build an atomic bomb during World War II. The site made plutonium for nuclear weapons for four decades. But for the past 25 years, Hanford’s major mission has been the cleanup of the nation’s largest volume of nuclear waste. The waste treatment plant is supposed to be a centerpiece of the work, designed to treat the most radioactive wastes that are stored in 177 underground tanks. Some of those tanks have leaked. Meanwhile, the federal government this week estimated that completing the cleanup will cost another $113.6 billion. The estimate is based on completing most cleanup work by 2060, with oversight and monitoring until 2090.

State Legislature: What’s alive, dead? A look at the bills in Olympia BY LISA BAUMANN THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OLYMPIA — With the 60-day state legislative session more than half over, one bill related to immigration has been sent to Gov. Jay Inslee for his signature. Both the House and Senate have given final approval to the measure, which would expand college financial aid to include students who were brought to the state illegally as children. But many bills tackling issues from toxic products to tanning bed usage for teens have passed through one chamber, and it remains to be seen whether they will move forward and make it to the governor’s desk. House Majority Leader Pat Sullivan, D-Covington, said he’s pleased the immigrant financial aid bill cleared both chambers. “It gives hope that others could pass,” he said of the bills, including one that would require paid sick leave for some employees. Senate Majority Leader Rodney Tom, D-Medina, said larger work remains, citing the budget, reform efforts on K-12 education and transportation as the top issues. Even with that work, he said he thinks the session will end on time. “There’s not too many things I can predict here, but a 60-day session is one of them,” he said. Here’s a look at some bills that remain in play and others that appear to be dead:

Still alive


Rep. Zack Hudgins, D-Tukwila, speaks in front of his colleagues in the House chamber in the state Legislative Building on the Capitol Campus in Olympia earlier this week. ■ Quality improvement for early learning: Two lawmakers from across the political aisle proposed a new multimillion-dollar push for high-quality preschools in a bill that passed in the House. The program would involve financial incentives, intensive mentoring and training for preschool teachers, and quality improvements for the kids of parents trying to work their way off welfare. (House Bill 2377) ■ State waterfall: The measure passed by the House would designate Palouse Falls in southeastern Washington as the official state waterfall. (HB 2119) ■ McCleary decision/ education budget: Education leaders from both political parties are meeting with the governor to talk about how they should respond to the Supreme Court’s ordered improvement in education spending. Lawmakers and policy experts say the Legislature needs to find as much as $5 billion in new money by the end of the 2017-18 school year. This effort could be part of the budget bill or just result in a report to the court. ■ Pay it forward: A bill still in the House Appropriations Committee would let college students attending public schools pay nothing up-front for tuition.

Instead, they’d pay after leaving school in the form of a small, fixed percentage of their future income for up to 25 years. Because it could be considered a budgetary bill, it’s not subject to cutoff deadlines. (House Bill 2720)

Likely dead ■ Minimum wage: A bill to increase what is already the highest state minimum wage in the nation to $12 an hour over the next three years passed a policy committee but died in a House fiscal committee. (House Bill 2672.) ■ Abortion insurance: For the third year in a row, Democratic state lawmakers have pushed for a measure that would require state insurers offering maternity care to also cover elective abortions, but as in the past, after passing the House, it is not expected to advance in the Senate. (House Bill 2148) ■ Teacher-principal evaluations: None of the proposals to revise the state’s new teacher-principal evaluation system has been approved. The state’s waiver from provisions of the so-called No Child Left Behind law appears to be in danger because state law suggests but does not insist that statewide test results be used as a factor in teacher evaluations. This issue could come

back to life during budget negotiations because it would affect spending of about $44 billion in federal dollars. ■ DNA preservation: A measure to impose an 18-month moratorium on destruction of DNA evidence in felony cases passed a House committee but was not brought to the floor for a vote. (House Bill 2468) ■ Drunken driving: A measure that would have made it a felony charge to drive under the influence when the driver has three prior offenses within 10 years never came up for a vote in the Senate. Under current law, a DUI is a felony only if there are four or more prior offenses within 10 years. (Senate Bill 6090) ■ Paid vacation: A bill would have required accrual of paid vacation leave for employees who work an average of 20 or more hours per week for employers with 25 or more employees. (House Bill 2238) ■ Reduced class sizes: A House bill that hasn’t gained traction would lower class sizes in public schools and help encourage the hir-

ing of more teachers and other staff members. (House Bill 2589) ■ GMO labeling: Two measures would require labeling genetically engineered salmon for sale, even though federal regulators have not yet approved any genetically modified animals for food. Companion bills in the House and Senate also would prohibit genetically engineered fish with fins from being produced in state waters. Neither bill made it out of committee. (House Bill 2347 and Senate Bill 6184) ■ Easier voting: Two bills that would make it easier to drop off a ballot or put it in the mail failed to pass out of a House committee.

Passed legislature ■ Immigration-financial aid: A measure to expand college financial aid to include students who were brought to the state illegally as children passed both the Senate and House with bipartisan support. The measure requires students to have received a high school diploma or equivalent in Washington state and to have lived in the state for at least three years beforehand. The bill allocates $5 million through June 30, 2015, from the general fund to pay for the financial aid payments under the state needgrant program. Gov. Jay Inslee will sign it in the coming weeks.

Likely going to voters ■ Gun initiatives: The House and Senate held public hearings on two gun initiatives but did not advance them out of their respective committees, which means voters will weigh in on them in November. Initiative 594 would require universal background checks on all firearm sales in Washington. Initiative 591 would prevent Washington state from adopting background-check laws stricter than the national standard.

■ Medical marijuana: Measures to reconcile the state’s medical marijuana system with the new legal recreation market are considered necessary to implement the budget and therefore are not subject to cutoff deadlines. However, the House version passed this week, with changes including reducing the amount of marijuana and number of plants patients can possess, doing away with collective gardens and establishing a patient registry. Meanwhile, U.S. Justice Department officials have warned that the state’s medical pot status quo is untenable. A separate bill being heard by the House Finance Committee would create a sales and use tax exemption for qualified patients who purchase marijuana or marijuana-infused products for medical use from authorized retail outlets licensed by the Liquor Control Board. Because that bill is also considered a budgetary bill, it’s not subject to cutoff deadlines. The medical marijuana overhaul bill is House Bill 2149, and the Senate Bills are 5887 and 6178. The sales tax exemption bill is House Bill 2198. ■ Industrial hemp: Industrial hemp would be allowed to be grown under a measure that passed the House that authorizes the director of the Department of Agriculture to issue licenses to grow industrial hemp. The department would be designated as the sole source and supplier of seeds used for industrial-hemp production. Hemp is used to make a variety of different products, including clothing, food, beauty products and biofuels. (House Bill 1888) ■ Tanning beds: Tanning facilities would be banned for those younger than 18 under a bill passed by the Senate. (SB 6065) ■ Fishing wars: Native American tribal members who were arrested before 1975 could apply to the court to expunge their misdemeanor, gross misdemeanor or felony convictions if they were exercising their treaty fishing rights, under a mea-

sure passed by the House. (HB 2080) ■ Drones, government surveillance: Two bills passed by the House would restrict the use of drones and government surveillance. (HB 2178 and 2789) ■ Toxic products: A House bill would ban some chemical flame retardants from household furniture and children’s products such as strollers and changing pads. (House Bill 1294) ■ Gay conversion: A bill intended to prevent health care providers from trying to convert gay people younger than 18 passed the state House and is scheduled for a hearing in the Senate Committee on Health Care. (House Bill 2451) ■ Paid sick leave: A bill that would guarantee paid sick time away from work for some employees in the state passed the House and has been referred to the Senate Commerce and Labor Committee. The bill would require employers with more than four full-time employees to provide paid leave for specified medical reasons. It also would cover work absences to care for children, spouses, parents, grandparents and parents-in-law. (House Bill 1313) ■ Car dealers/manufacturers: Amended bills passed in the House and Senate that would allow Tesla Motors, manufacturer of electric cars, to expand their system of selling cars directly from the manufacturer to the customer. (HB 2524 and SB 6272) ■ Oil train safety: A bill passed through the House, backed by environmental groups, would study the state’s ability to respond to oil train accidents. It also authorizes the state to come up with new rules requiring tug escorts for oil tankers entering Grays Harbor and the Columbia River. (House Bill 2347) ■ Trafficking victims: A bill passed through the House would allow a victim of trafficking to have prostitution convictions cleared from their records. (HB 1292) ■ 24-credit diploma: A bill passed by the Senate would allow Career and Technical classes to meet certain graduation requirements under the state’s new 24-credit high school diploma, scheduled to go into effect with the graduating class of 2016. (SB 6552) ■ Child care deaths: A bill that would require formal investigations of childcare centers when a death occurs, even if the child appears to have died from natural causes, has passed the House. (House Bill 2165).

Since 2007, the foundation has given away $271,000 in grants, Berger said. “Our volunteer board is dedicated to supporting the students and teachers of Port Townsend, and we are inspired by the legacy and work of Mrs. Burgett,” said Caitlin Harrison, the Port Townsend Education Foundation’s board president.

Snow fun again this weekend

Fishing update The West End rivers received a lot of rain recently and appear to be on their way down. If that happens, Brian Menkal of Brian’s Sporting Goods and More (360-683-1950) in Sequim said there should be more native steelhead in the rivers. ■ As for the saltwater salmon angers, Menkal said many seem to be recovering from fishing the Olympic Peninsula Salmon Derby in windy conditions last weekend. Until the wind dies down, don’t expect much fishing to happen. ■ Ward Norden, a fishing tackle wholesaler and former fishery biologist in Quilcene, stopped by Lake Leland earlier this week. “The lake is up at least 18 inches and, in spite of the heavy ‘warmish’ rain, the water temperature hasn’t budged much yet at 34 degrees,” Norden said. “I talked to three anglers at the pier and watched one catch is second beautiful-colored trout, about 15 inches long and well over a pound. “When water is cold there is a lot of luck involved as the three experienced anglers, one even belonged to Puget Sound Anglers, proved. “All three were using the same bait — brightly colored Power Bait — on similar rigs, but two anglers got nary a bite while one had two nice fish. “Patience, patience.”

Riders top Cards, face No. 5 Sumner tonight BY MICHAEL CARMAN


Port Angeles point guard Maddy Hinrichs (13) shoots over the defense of Franklin Pierce’s Erica Walker (32) at Wilson High School in Tacoma.




TACOMA — The Port Angeles girls basketball team found itself in uncharted territory in its Class 2A West Central District Tournament opener against Franklin Pierce. Needing a ALSO . . . lift, with floor leader Maddy ■ Sequim Hinrichs boys fall to plagued by Foster, play foul trouble Sumner boys for half the tonight /B7 game, the Roughriders were propped up by steady play from seniors Kylee Jeffers and Krista Johnson on their way to a 54-28 regionals berth-clinching win. “We had an eight-day layoff and it didn’t look like it, the kids came ready to play,” Port Angeles coach Michael Poindexter said following Wednesday’s game. At the tail end of a 12-0 run, and with the Riders leading 18-8 with 6:27 left before halftime, Hinrichs, who wears No. 13, was mistaken for Jones, who wears No. 23, and incorrectly whistled for her second foul of the first half. A sub came in for Jones instead of Hinrichs, who imme-

diately picked up her third foul on a reach-in on the ensuing inbounds play. To keep the lead, the Riders (18-3) needed some assistance and they received it from Jeffers — a player who has done all the small things, such as playing solid defense, rebounding and forcing steals, all season long that have help Port Angeles pile up big victories. Jeffers was able to get to the free-throw line and connect on six foul shots in the second quarter, and Johnson cashed in her fourth 3-pointer of the first half as the lead grew to 30-15 at the break. Johnson finished with a game-high 14 points. Hinrichs was whistled for her fourth foul, a reach-in in the backcourt just 38 seconds into the third quarter, forcing her to the bench until the fourth period. “The second foul wasn’t her fault and made me go berserk [internally], but the third and fourth fouls, she put herself into trouble there with the reachin’s,” Poindexter said.

Area wrestlers eye state titles Morales, Morales lead the Spartans into Mat Classic BY MICHAEL CARMAN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

TACOMA — Forks wrestling coach Bob Wheeler has spent this week mentally preparing his North Olympic Peninsulaleading 14 state qualifiers to “win two matches on Friday” at Mat Classic XXVI at the Tacoma Dome. Win two on Friday and a placement in the top eight at state is assured. Wheeler has enough wrestlers and enough potentially high-performing grapplers competing that a state team title is within reach. “We haven’t been the most consistent, so I’m not sure what group will show up,” Wheeler said. “The thing I think about every year is if they are good enough to be at state they are good enough to place, so we can’t overlook anyone [we wrestle against]. “It doesn’t matter if you face a freshman; if they’ve gotten


Forks junior Miguel Morales wrestles at last year’s Mat Classic. Morales was the state runner-up in the 285-pound division as a sophomore in 2013. there, they can beat you.” Best bets for individual titles for Forks come big and small in the form of 106-pounder Sebastian Morales, a junior who was seventh at state last year, and Miguel Morales at 285, who in his first season of wrestling last

year ended up in a state final, falling 15-5 to Cody Zyph of Kiona-Benton. Sebastian Morales wrestled at 113 during the regular season in order to “wrestle tough guys and prepare for state,” according to Wheeler.

“We certainly feel they should compete for titles,” Wheeler said of the pair. “Miguel is just a natural talent and I don’t think there’s anything stopping him from getting to the finals.” TURN



PC women, men sweep Dolphins Sophomores win final home game BY LEE HORTON PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

Hunter education The next hunter education course in Forks will begin Monday, March 3, at the West End Sportsmen’s Club. The course will be held March 3, 5, 10 and 12 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The final test is Saturday, March 15 at 9 a.m. The course teaches firearms safety, wildlife conservation and sportsmanship. Students must attend all classes for the opportunity to receive a hunter education student certificate. Washington law requires firsttime hunters born after Jan. 1, 1972, to successfully complete a hunter education class in order to purchase a hunting license.

Peninsula’s Pherrari Brumbaugh, left, slips around Shoreline’s Magen Lloyd in the first half as Genia Taylor of Shoreline looks on.

PORT ANGELES — The win was just a nice touch. Having already locked down its spot in next month’s NWAACC Championships, the final outcome took a backseat in the Peninsula College women’s team’s matchup with Shoreline. “Our whole concept going into this game was, let’s celebrate ourselves,” Peninsula coach Alison Crumb said after Wednesday’s game. “It’s just celebrating all the hard work we put into it. And we were celebrating ourselves first, our sophomores second and our fans — we have some of the best fans in the NWAACC. “So that’s what this game was about.” In the midst of that celebration, the Pirates routed the Dolphins 79-52 in the opening game

of the NWAACC North Division doubleheader. In the finale, the Peninsula men survived a near-miracle to beat Shoreline 97-96. The Pirate women (8-5, 11-12) were playing without second-leading scorer Alison Knowles, who was nursing a sore ankle. Knowles, who set the school’s all-time single-season 3-point record last week, did play the first 43 seconds of the game so she could start the final home game of her career, before exiting less than a minute into the game. In Knowles’ absence, Crumb gave more minutes to the other outgoing sophomores and provided the freshman a chance to step up and show the future of the program. Freshman Madison Pilster scored 24 points to lead all scorers and push her season average to 14.2 points, which overtook Knowles as the Pirates’ secondleading scorer. TURN




WELL, IT FINALLY started snowing at Hurricane Ridge at the beginning of last week and it hasn’t really stopped since. I checked the Ridge’s snow Lee level online early last week Horton and it was at 31 inches. Now, only 10 or 11 days have passed and there is nearly 90 inches of snow. The Hurricane Ridge ski and snowboard area was open Saturday, Sunday and Monday last weekend. It was only open for half of each day due to large snow storms, but mountain manager John Fox said there were between 80 and 100 skiers and snowboarders each day. “For a late opener, the powder really drew the people,” Fox said. “I assume there will be another good draw this weekend.” The only hitch, besides a little too much snow, was the Snowcat broke down. Fox said repairs are almost done. The two rope tows and the tubing area should be open this weekend, which in Hurricane Ridge parlance is Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fox said that the poma lift won’t be open this weekend, but depending on time and the Snowcat’s condition, it might open in the next few weekends. The late start to the season will affect the typical ski lessons, but private lessons are still available. Before you go, check the latest weather and road conditions by phone at 360-565-3131, or via Twitter, @HRWinterAccess.

Pirates: Men survive late turnover CONTINUED FROM B5 Pilster also grabbed nine rebounds. Freshman guard Miranda Schmillen, herself hobbled by injury, scored 16 points and had six rebounds. “We just had a good team effort,” Crumb said. “Maddy was just on a mission tonight. She’s a firecracker. “When you have a player like Al [Knowles] go out . . . you want [the other] girls to step up and say, ‘I got you, I got your back.’ Our freshman and our other sophomores were right on board with that.” Peninsula’s leading scorer, freshman Gabi Fenumiai, scored 11 points and grabbed 15 rebounds to set a new modern school record for rebounds in a season. Fenumiai now has 273 this season, surpassing the 259 pulled down by Marsha Umbehocker in 2000-01. Then there were the sophomores. Point guard Olivia Henderson scored 13 points and grabbed 10 boards. At only 5-foot-3, Henderson is the Pirates’ third-leading rebounder (4.4 per game). Pherrari Brumbaugh scored nine points, dished four assists and had four steals. She leads Peninsula with 3.2 steals per game. Finally, Cassandra Roland and Brandi Hale played season-highs in minutes.

Pirates, clinging to a one-point lead, made a defensive stop and the ball was knocked out of bounds with 1.9 seconds left in the game. On the way back to the bench, a shouting match started between a pair of Shoreline players, who had to be separated. The game’s outcome seemed like a foregone conclusion. But the Pirates overthrew the inbound pass toward the Dolphins’ hoop and Shoreline’s Bronte Corbray took possession with a clear path to glory. He made the wide-open layup, but it came well after the buzzer. “Well, we never want to throw back that direction with that much time left,” Peninsula coach Mitch Freeman said of the inbound pass. It was the Pirates’ 26th turnover of the game, an uncharacteristically high total, for which Freeman credited the Dolphins and their uptempo-all-the-time style of play.

“Their basketball stuff speaks for itself,” Crumb said of the sophomores leading the Pirates to another playoff berth. “But off the floor, you can’t match these kids’ character. This group, especially, is probably the best group of five as far as maturity and intelligence — I mean, they have a [grade point] average together of a 3.5, they’re all getting their degree. “They’re such mature young women that are great role models for our freshman. “I don’t think I’ve ever had a five where . . . I don’t have to teach them how to be good at life. They’re just great at life on their own.” Peninsula next plays at division-leading Bellevue (12-1, 19-7) on Sunday afternoon. Crumb expects Knowles to play in that game. “We just wanted to rest her [against Shoreline],” Crumb said. “We need her for playoffs, so we just had to give her a break.”

ern history. He broke the Pirates’ single-game scoring with 43 against Skagit Valley earlier this month, and he is on pace to set new highs in single-season and career scoring average. The other sophomores are Tyler McKinney, who tied Peninsula’s record for 3-pointers in a game with seven last week, and Erron Shamlin and Daren Hechanova, who both played only one year in Port Angeles. “Xavier and T.J. [McKinney] had phenomenal careers here at Peninsula College. Terrific young men,” Freeman said. “And Erron Shamlin and Daren Hechanova, who are with us just one year, and they tried to make the best of the situation, with the last-minute change of coaches. They did a great job for us.” Hechanova scored 17 points in Wednesday’s game and grabbed eight rebounds. Markus Rawls had 15 points and nine boards and Geno Horsley scored 14 points. Peninsula (6-7, 12-10), having already been eliminated from the postseason, concludes its season at Bellevue (10-3, 16-10) on Sunday afternoon. Peninsula 97, Shoreline 96 Shoreline Peninsula

Junior Roberto Coronel (285 pounds) finished seventh in the 220-pound class last year and is leaner and in better shape than many of the bigger wrestlers he faces. “He’s confusing to most of those guys, but he’s big and powerful and strong enough to match what they do well,” Gonzalez said. “He’s more like a college heavyweight, style-wise.” Junior Matt Robbins (182) competed at state last year, and earlier this month took his regional championship competitor to the limits, with Kingston’s Aaron Dickson resorting to stalling to hold onto the win. “Confidence-wise, Matt is on a roll and is a dangerous kind of wrestler, Gonzalez said.

“I think he was a little awestruck last year at state and that won’t be the same this year.” Junior Brady Anderson (120) is a two-time participant who has gone 0 for 2 in heartbreaking fashion both years. “He’s ready to take the next step this year and we like his chances at getting to the semis and winning there,” Gonzalez said.

The first sessions starts today at 10 a.m, with the second session running from 4 p.m to 9:30 p.m. Saturday’s action begins with the third session at 10 a.m. The finals matches start at 5 p.m.

Riders: Jeffers plays the point CONTINUED FROM B5 The Riders were fine for about a minute, but committed five straight turnovers and went 5:44 without scoring a point in the third quarter. “Playing a huge amount of minutes without Maddy bothered us, clearly,” Poindexter said. “She is such an incredible calming influence for us, she’s never flustered.”

Poindexter moved Jeffers, normally a wing, to point guard, simplified the offense and hunkered down until the fourth quarter when Hinrichs could return. “Her leadership really held us together,” Poindexter said of Jeffers. Port Angeles led 36-23 heading into the fourth quarter before the Cardinals scored the first basket of the period to cut it to 11. But with Hinrichs back

on the floor and Port Angeles more centered as a unit, Franklin Pierce could do nothing but toss up 3-point bricks and send the Riders to the free-throw line in a failed bid to extend the game. The Riders put the game out of reach from the line, knocking down 12 free throws in the fourth to pull away. Port Angeles hit 26 of 34 from the line on the night.

UNIVERSITY PLACE — The Sequim boys basketball team will have to earn a place at regionals the hard way after falling to the Foster Bulldogs to open the West Central District Tournament at Curtis High School. A win Wednesday night would have qualified Sequim (15-6) for the regional tourney, but the Wolves must now push through the consolation bracket and win loser-out games today against No. 9 Sumner (16-8) and Saturday against the winner between Clover Park and Olympic. Today’s game is set for 6 p.m. at Bellarmine Prep in Tacoma. Foster freshman Isaiah Lewis led all scorers with 19, with 13 of those coming in the second half. The Bulldogs led 31-30

at halftime and the lead went back and forth during a tight third quarter. Foster took a seven-point lead late in the contest, forcing the Wolves to foul to keep their hopes alive. The strategy nearly worked as Foster missed a pair of free throws and Sequim rebounded the ball with three seconds left, but were whistled for a traveling violation before a gametying heave could be attempted.

WASHINGTON — The White House said President Barack Obama’s upcoming budget proposal will not include his past offer to accept lowered costof-living increases in Social

Security and other benefit But Republicans never accepted Obama’s calls for programs. Those had been a central higher tax revenue to go component of his long-term along with the cuts. debt-reduction strategy.

Could stay on table

GOP negotiations Officials said Thursday those potential reductions in spending, included in last year’s Obama budget, had been designed to initiate negotiations with Republicans over how to reduce future deficits and the nation’s debt.

Return to the hearing world...

One official said the offer would remain on the table in the event of new budget talks, but that it would not be part of the president’s formal spending blueprint for fiscal 2015. The official was not authorized to comment by name on the budget plan before its March 4 release and spoke only on condition of anonymity. The decision to drop the cost-of-living proposal was essentially an acknowledgement that Obama has been unable to conclude a

“grand budget bargain” with Republican leaders, even by including in his previous budget plan a benefit reduction opposed by many Democrats.

Party lines While Democrats will cheer the new decision, Republicans are sure to portray the White House move as abandoning any commitment to fiscal discipline. The new Obama proposal would eliminate congressionally mandated automatic spending cuts that are scheduled to continue kicking in through 2015 by adding $56 billion to the budget, evenly divided between military and domestic spending.

WASHINGTON — House GOP leaders are putting the final touches on legislation that would significantly water down a recently enacted overhaul of the much criticized federal flood insurance program, easing many premium increases and allowing below-market rates to be passed on to people buying homes with taxpayersubsidized policies. The new law was enacted in 2012 and was aimed at weaning hundreds of thousands of homeowners off subsidized rates and required extensive updating of the flood maps used to set premiums, but its implementation has stirred anxiety among many homeowners along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts and in flood plains, many of whom are threatened with unaffordable rate increases. GOP aides said the

measure also would repeal a provision that threatens hundreds of thousands of homeowners with huge premium increases under new and updated government flood maps. Those homeowners currently benefit from belowmarket rates that are subsidized by other policyholders, and the new legislation would preserve their “grandfathered” status. The aides requested anonymity because the measure is still being finalized and hasn’t been publicly released. Anger over the higher rates has fueled a bipartisan drive to delay or derail many of the 2012 changes. In response, the Senate last month took a different approach, passing a bill to delay the changes, which were aimed at putting the flood insurance program on sound financial footing.

Tanker fleet BILLINGS, Mont. — BNSF Railway Co. said Thursday it intends to buy a fleet of 5,000 strengthened tank cars to haul oil and ethanol in a move that would set a higher safety standard for a fleet that’s seen multiple major accidents. The voluntary step by the Texas-based subsidiary of Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. comes as railroads in the U.S. and Canada are under intense pressure to improve safety for hazardous-materials shipments. There’s been a string of recent train accidents involving oil and ethanol, punctuated by a crude shipment that derailed in Quebec last July and killed 47 people. A boom in domestic oil drilling and rising ethanol production spurred a dramatic increase in shipments of the materials by rail. Much of it is being hauled by an old fleet of some 78,000 tank cars that are prone to split during accidents. Thursday’s announcement marks a potential major step in addressing that problem. However, it would not mean those older cars would go away, and there’s already a two-year backlog on new tank car construction. In announcing that it will ask manufacturers to submit bids for the new cars, BNSF indicated it was unwilling to wait for the U.S. Department of Transportation to finalize pending regulations on improved tank cars.

Strength in the face of struggles ALL OF US face adversity and tragedy at some time in our lives. What’s the difference between those who become better, not bitter, when struggling with such situations? Rather than becoming overwhelmed at difficulties they face, they find their way through the twisted path of life, stepping over and around the obstacles, emerging scarred but vibrantly alive. When looking at those who face life with equanimity, a common trait they share is the ability to practice gratitude, even during the most trying times. They are able to focus more on the blessings in their life than on the difficulties. They awaken to the good and give thanks for the beauty they see, no matter how terrible things may seem. The recent success of the Seattle Seahawks is an excellent example of overcoming adversity while facing overwhelming odds.

Overhwhelming odds There was almost universal negativity from experts regarding the team’s chances, and many players had been passed over or otherwise rejected as not good enough. Their coach was fired by two other NFL teams, and their amazing field goal kicker, who has a degree in neuroscience, didn’t play football until 2003. They have several players with physical ailments, some life-threatening, that could easily have stopped them from believing they could succeed as a team. One of their fullbacks is legally deaf, and the other nearly died from kidney and liver failure just five months ago. Their linebacker, Malcolm Smith, chosen as the MVP of the Super Bowl, suffers from a rare disease that makes swallowing and therefore eating difficult. It can be very painful, and although surgery helped, he deals with this daily, needing a special diet, having to eat slowly and in small portions. Rather than bemoaning

DES MOINES, Iowa — Bibles will be removed from guest rooms at Iowa State University’s Hotel Memorial Union in Ames. The Des Moines Register said a guest complained to a watchdog group, the Freedom From Religion Foundation. The organization wrote to Memorial Union director Richard Reynolds on Jan. 29 asking for the Bibles to be removed.

Shakila Ahmad pauses for a photo at the Islamic Center in Cincinnati. The Cincinnati Enquirer recently reported that Ahmad will become the first woman to hold the role of president in the 18-year history of the Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati.

The group’s attorney, Patrick Elliott, said that for a state-run university to provide a Bible to guests, “that policy facilitates illegal endorsement of Christianity over other religions and over nonreligion.” Reynolds responded last week and said the Bibles would be removed by Saturday, March 1. The hotel occupies several floors in the Memorial Union and has 52 rooms. The Bibles will be placed in the Memorial Union’s Browsing Library for lending.

Giving thanks How many of us open our eyes in the morning and immediately begin to list the things we have to accomplish, or what is wrong with our lives? Instead, what if our first thoughts upon awakening were those of gratitude? Our entire attitude would shift to a positive one, enabling us to face our difficulties with strength and resolve. If we allow ourselves to show gratitude for our blessings, our problems will feel less overwhelming. We need only to look up from our sorrows and resolve to go forward, rejoice and be grateful for the abundant beauty surrounding us. Kein yehi ratzon . . . may it be God’s will. Shalom.

service has been remembered fondly at a memorial service. Jamie Coots was known for his role on the National Geographic Channel reality show “Snake Salvation.” But a family friend remembered him Tuesday night for his “great faith” and tolerance of others. Bill Bisceglia of Middlesboro told Knoxville, Tenn., station WBIR-TV that the 42-year-old Coots didn’t argue with people who didn’t agree with him but maintained his own beliefs until he died. People parked blocks away from the funeral home where visitation and a funeral service were held. Visitors said afterward that the funeral home was full, and lines were long. Coots was handling a rattlesnake when he was bitten last Saturday night. Peninsula Daily News and The Associated Press

Death and Memorial Notice MARY MAXINE DUNN Mary Dunn passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, February 12, 2014, at the age of 82 as a result of her longstanding issues with hypertension. She was the third of four children born to Vernus and Nona Ray. She leaves behind two siblings, Lauren Ray and Beverly Brock. Her older brother, Jack

Ray, died in 1985. Her husband, Willis Dunn, died previously, so she lived in their house with her dog until her death. She is survived by three children, Larry Dunn, Gary Dunn and Mary Clark; nine grandchildren; and 12 greatgrandchildren. Mary was a cosmetology teacher for many years and was one of the nicest people many had ever met. She never had a negative thing to say

about anyone and always looked for the best in those around her. She was always kind and caring, taking care of her ailing parents and her husband until their deaths. Mary died in the Olympic Medical Center emergency room surrounded by her family. A funeral will be held today, February 21, at 1 p.m. at Mount Angeles Memorial Park, 45 South Monroe Road, Port Angeles.

individual campaign committees still raise the bulk of money spent on Senate campaigns. And cash under the direct control of the candidates is more valuable because advertising rates for candidates are lower than those offered to independent groups.

For instance, the Senate Conservatives Fund raised $7.7 million last year, while the Democrats’ Senate Majority PAC raised $8.6 million.

Fun ’n’ Advice



For Better or For Worse

Frank & Ernest


DEAR ABBY: I have been married to a wonderful man for 17 years, and we have two children. My life should be perfect, and it is — until it’s time to visit my in-laws. We don’t see them more than a few times a year, but I’ve taken to pleading work as an excuse not to see them on holidays or special occasions if I can avoid it. I have even spent Christmas at home alone because I can’t stand how verbally abusive my in-laws are. My mother-in-law admits to being mean and nasty. She says she doesn’t care because she “hates people.” They are now pressuring my husband to move nearer to them. The thought makes me sick. My life could have been so different if these relatives were nice, normal people. I wanted us to be friends. I’m a kind person, but I have never been good enough for them. I would never dream of saying some of the things they have said to me. They’re upper middle class, and I’m “trash.” I never thought when I married my husband that his family would enjoy making me miserable. The Easter holidays are coming, and I don’t know what to do. I’m afraid one day, the buildup of anger will make me explode. How can I make their verbal abuse stop? I’m sick of being the brunt of jokes and sarcastic comments. “Outlaw” in Arizona

AA meetings. Last night, he forgot to sign out of his email, and I saw he has been corresponding with a woman he met at the meetings. In her message, she confided her problems finding a man. His reply was that she has been picking the wrong men, that he cares and that they need to talk face-toface. I wish I had never seen the email. Because of it, I can’t eat or sleep, worrying about what might possibly be going on. I don’t want to confront him because he has a nasty temper, yet I feel I must do something. But what? Lost in Nowhere, Montana Dear Lost: Instead of “confronting” your husband, simply ask him if he has become this woman’s AA sponsor. It might explain why she is confiding in him and why he suggested they meet face-to-face to talk, which could be entirely innocent. Does he have a history of cheating on you? If something is going on, it would be better for your emotional health to know what you are dealing with. And if your husband responds with verbal or physical abuse because of his “nasty temper,” you should insist on marriage counseling or get out of there for your own safety.

Dear “Outlaw”: If your husband is “wonderful,” why has he tolerated his parents’ treating you this way for 17 years? He should have insisted from the beginning of your marriage that you be treated with respect. I can’t believe the two of you would expose your children to this multiple times a year. You can’t “make” your in-laws stop their verbal abuse, but your husband might be able to if he locates his spine and puts his foot down. There should be no more talk of moving close to these toxic people, nor should there be any more visits to them until they either change their

Take charge of your future by taking care of your personal, medical, legal or financial situation. Don’t leave your future in someone else’s hands. An old lesson will be valuable to you now. 2 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Push your way to the top. Use your insight and originality to outshine anyone you do business with.

Beyond SURFACES PT children’s author explores friendship with Odd, Weird & Little BY DIANE URBANI DE LA PAZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT TOWNSEND — A new classmate arrives from Canada, and the kids are mystified. Boy: “He’s so odd.” Buddy: “He’s so weird.” Girl: “He’s so little.” His name is Toulouse, and he’s from Quebec, but that’s not what the other children find strange. This newcomer wears a hat, gloves and glasses. His head turns almost all the way around. And his mouth, well, it’s birdlike. So everybody’s fixated on how different Toulouse looks.

Everyone except young Woodrow, that is. He hangs out with Toulouse on the playground, marveling at his ability to move rapidly from place to place. Then they go fishing together, after Woodrow visits Toulouse’s family treehouse.

Tale of two friends

Patrick Jennings, seen before the historic OWL Cigars sign in downtown Port Townsend, is author of Odd, Weird & Little, a new novel for readers age 8 and up.

And so the story of a friendship unfolds, a friendship the other kids miss out on. This is Odd, Weird & Little, Port Townsend author Patrick Jennings’ latest novel adventure published by Egmont USA. And since the hero is French Canadian, Jennings is inviting

readers to a cookies-andmilk party at Sweet Laurette’s, the French-style cafe at 1029 Lawrence St., this Sunday afternoon. Jennings will read from Odd, Weird & Little at 4:30 p.m., and while the event is free, copies of Odd and Jennings’ other recent books — Guinea Dog 2, My Homework Ate My Homework, Dognap — will be for sale.

May we help?

Good reviews Jennings has enjoyed good notices about this latest work, even if some critics didn’t quite align with what it’s about. “At last: a humorous,

No preaching He didn’t sit down to write a novel about bullies. To him, Odd, Weird & Little is about two friends, kindred souls who see past the surface. Jennings, author of 21 kids’ books now, strives to avoid the preachy-teachy. But “if I was preaching

or teaching anything, it’s about digging a little bit deeper with people,” he said. Kids or not, “we judge people on what they look like, not what they are, or who.” Odd, Weird & Little isn’t heavy, though. It’s speckled with wordplay and absurd situations.

Little puzzles “I like stories that have little puzzles in them that you sort of unlock,” Jennings said. So he doesn’t come right out and say what Toulouse is. “I pushed the absurd further than I usually do,”

Jennings said, “and then hid it.” His next book, to come out in August, is Guinea Dog 3, part of Jennings’ saga about a pet guinea pig who behaves like a dog, much to the delight and then consternation of his owner, Rufus. Absurd, yes. But Jennings has an inhouse editor, his 14-yearold daughter Odette,who keeps him from getting too far out there. “The last thing I do before I send [a book] in, I read it aloud to her,” he said. “She has a good ear.” More about Jennings and his books can be found at www.PatrickJennings. com.

useful and pedantry-free book about bullying,” a Kirkus Reviews critic wrote recently of Odd, Weird & Little. “When that review came out, I said, ‘Really?’ Bullying is always out there, in stories and in my life,” Jennings said.

Yet it was an accomplishment in another way. “I wrote ‘Waiting in the Wings’ with loving care and absolute belief in its characters,” Coward noted at the time. “I consider that the reconciliation between Lotta and May . . . and the meeting of Lotta and her son . . . are two of the best scenes I have ever written. “The play as a whole contains, beneath the froth of some of its lighter

moments, the basic truth ard added, “provided you that old age needn’t be greet it with humour and nearly so dreary and sad as live it with courage.” it is supposed to be,” CowThe play covers a year

in the life of The Wings, Balducci added. During this time, “these women make a family.”

Angels of the PA Symphony Concert to aid organization BY DIANE URBANI DE LA PAZ



:DLWLQJ,Q 7KH:LQJV By Noel Coward


Directed by Nikkole Adams

PORT ANGELES — A woman who sings jazz and classical and an ensemble of well-known players will seek to make some heavenly music this Sunday afternoon. “When the Angels Come,” a concert featuring soprano Robbin Eaves with the Angels Chamber Ensemble, is a free event at 2 p.m. at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, 301 E. Lopez Ave., though donations will be accepted for the beneficiary: Port Angeles Chamber Orchestra’s music library.

February 21, 22, 25, 28 March 1, 4, 7, 8, at 7:30pm Robbin Eaves will join with the Angels Chamber Ensemble to benefit the Port Angeles Symphony.

Expensive sheet music the Symphony office at 360-457-5579. Besides volunteering at the auction Saturday night, Eaves is assembling Sunday’s musicians: Angels Chamber Ensemble violinists Leah Marsh and Deborah Morgan-Ellis; violist Phil Morgan-Ellis; cellist Marlene Moore and harpsichordist Penny Hall, who’s also known for her accompaniment of the Peninsula Men’s Gospel Singers.

Baroque trio A Baroque trio, of Dennis Crabb and Kirsten Ruhl on recorders and Bob Dunlap on piano, will also appear, to play William Williams’ Sonata in a minor.

A reception will follow the short concert, which Eaves says can be a way to introduce young people to the classics. In addition to singing with the Peninsula College Vocal Jazz Ensemble and with the college’s jazz band led by David Jones, Eaves does volunteer work year-round for the Port Angeles Symphony. Her special interest is in attracting families and youngsters to its concerts and other activities. Eaves hopes to “ensure that the Symphony continues to do its good musical works in community,” even as fundraisers like the two this weekend help “pass that experience on to the next generation.”

Eaves, together with her fellow performers, is eager to generate support for this cause, since the sheet music for a single concert can run about $500, according to Mark Wendeborn, executive director of the Port Angeles Symphony. The conductor’s score alone can cost $200, he added. With the Angels ensemble backing her, Eaves will sing Bach’s cantata 82, “Ich habe genug” (“I am content”) Sunday — the day after another major event. The Applause! Auction and Dinner, the Symphony’s biggest fundraiser of the year, will open at 6 p.m. Saturday at the Elks Naval Lodge, 131 E.

Sing-along to honor legacy of Pete Seeger BY DIANE URBANI




PORT ANGELES — “Folk songs by Pete Seeger,” the classified ad said, “Sunday, Nov. 3, 8:00 p.m., Junior High Auditorium. Admission: Adults $1; Students 50 cents, children under 10 free with parents.” So said the Port Angeles Evening News of Nov. 2, 1957, heralding an event that would thrill Tim Wheeler and his family.


Ssong till


Land,” the Woody Guthrie song Seeger loved to do, as well as “Deportee (Plane Wreck at Los Gatos)” and “Roll On, Columbia,” also by Guthrie. “Keep Your Eyes on the Prize,” a civil rights anthem, “Union Maid” from the labor movement and “Wimoweh,” a South African song made famous by Seeger’s group the Weavers, are on the agenda too. “There is nothing so uplifting as raising your voice,” said Burns, who was 10 years old when Seeger came out to the Olympic Peninsula. Then, the second time he did a concert here, Burns was sick with chicken pox and couldn’t go. So Seeger, who was staying at their home on Sequim’s Bell Hill, gave a house concert for her the day after the one he did at the old Lincoln High School in Port Angeles.

hat November was the first time Seeger, the now-legendary singer and activist, came to stay at their house in Sequim. Seeger would return twice more, and Wheeler and his siblings would stay in touch with the artist, exchanging Christmas cards with him for years to come.

PORT TOWNSEND — Fourthgeneration Port Townsender Jason Gould and former Associated Press photojournalist Mitchel Osborne are featured artists this month at the Port Townsend Gallery, and they’re filling the place with color, light and reflections on the town. Osborne, a photographer whose career has taken him to New Orleans and to Johannesburg, South Africa, as a contractor for the AP, moved to Port Townsend in 2006. He took the photos for the Wooden Boat Festival calendar for four years after that. Gould, a painter who makes his living as a general contractor, had scant formal art training: a photog-

Phil MorganEllis, seen here leading the Sequim Community Orchestra, will be the viola soloist in this Saturday’s Port Townsend Community Orchestra concert.

PT Community Orchestra to evoke warmer days with Saturday’s program BY DIANE URBANI DE LA PAZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT TOWNSEND — “The Walk to the Paradise Garden.” “Three Bavarian Dances.” “Flowers of the Field.” Sounds like the Port Townsend Community Orchestra, with maestro Dewey Ehling, are eager for springtime. Together they will do

what they can to bring it on this Saturday night. The orchestra, with guest soloist Phil MorganEllis, will step up at 7:30 p.m. at the Chimacum High School auditorium, 91 West Valley Road, for a free concert celebrating the music of British composers, with Ralph Vaughan Williams’ “Flos Campi” — “Flowers of the Field” — as its centerpiece. Morgan-Ellis is the viola

soloist, a man well-known in Port Angeles and Sequim for teaching young musicians and recently for leading the Sequim Community Orchestra. But Saturday night’s performance is a rare thing. The only other time he’s been the soloist was in 1978 with the Port Angeles Symphony, when he first came to the North Olympic Peninsula.


home, he became conductor of the Sequim Community Orchestra two years ago. Moved all over place A student of music since Since then Morgan-Ellis he was a third-grader in has left and come back. He Utah, Morgan-Ellis started out playing drums. moved to Costa Rica to In the fourth grade, he teach in the National Youth wanted to play the viola, Orchestra there — and but a teacher assured him then, after his return

that his arms would never be long enough to be any good at it, so he started on the violin. After graduation from college, he finally began to study the viola. The “Flos Campi” is a new piece for Morgan-Ellis, one that captivates him. “It takes you into a foreign landscape full of new colors,” he said. The music returns again and again to its familiar themes — “but never quite as you expect them.”

Old Testament’s “Song of Solomon,” for the listener to read to him- or herself. Ehling, who will give a short talk on the evening’s music at 6:45 p.m., has added another piece he adores: “The Walk to the Paradise Garden” by Frederick Delius. “What a gorgeous piece,” he said. “The first time I heard it was when I was in college during the late ’40s. I’ve loved it ever since.”

Great Selections & Low Prices!

Ehling, remarking on how unusual it is for Morgan-Ellis to appear as a soloist, added, “he is so deserving. I’m pleased we could work this out.” The opening duet between oboe and viola “is well worth the price of admission,” he added. “Since there’s no admission, that probably doesn’t say too much, but it is charming nevertheless.” The conductor noted too that Vaughan Williams provides a part for the audience. Each section of “Flos Campi” has a preface with quotations from the

With the St. Paul’s Suite by Gustav Holst and Edward Elgar’s “Three Bavarian Dances,” Saturday’s program will satisfy minds and hearts, Ehling believes.

Seeger CONTINUED FROM A1 “His great genius,” said Wheeler, “was not that he was the greatest singer in the world, but he got other people to sing. “He knew the power of song as a force for change. And you could just feel it, hearing a crowd of people singing together, that we can change the world, make it a better place. “He inspired the people. And they inspired him.”
