State officially designates Port Angeles historical area By Tom Callis
Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Port Angeles is officially historic. In a nod to the city’s past, the state Advisory Council on Historic Preservation approved the creation Wednesday of the Port Angeles Civic Historical District. The district includes three buildings on Lincoln Street: the Museum at the Carnegie, the original Clallam County Courthouse building and, in between them, the building that once acted as the city’s fire hall, jail and council chambers. The state will recommend that the district be added to the National Register of Historic Places.
“It’s one of the happiest days of my life,” said City Councilwoman Cherie Kidd, who has championed the idea of a historic district since before she was elected more than three years ago. Kidd attended the advisory council’s meeting in Olympia with City Manager Kent Myers and city archaeologist Derek Berry.
‘Beautiful civic center’ “I just felt that I represented all the people who worked for so many years to create a beautiful civic center for Port Angeles,” she said. County Commissioner Mike Doherty also has been a strong promoter of the
district’s creation. Doherty could not attend the meeting because of a scheduling conflict and could not be reached for comment Wednesday. Kidd said she is working to organize a celebration of the historic district May 21. If approved, the buildings would be open to the public that day, and a parade would be held on Lincoln Street, she said. Deputy Mayor Don Perry, a local historian who operates Heritage Tours, said he was “tickled pink” to hear the district was approved. Perry noted it would be a tourism draw for history buffs. Turn
PORT ANGELES — Olympic Medical Center and Jefferson Healthcare have tabbed Swedish Medical Center as a potential affiliate for patient referrals, clinical services and technology. OMC commissioners, meeting in Port Angeles, voted 7-0 Wednesday night to authorize its chief executive officer, Eric Lewis, to negotiate a nonbinding letter of intent with the Seattle-based medical center. “We also voted unanimously to do that,” said Jefferson Healthcare board member Jill Buhler in Port Townsend. Forks Community Hospital commissioners will take a similar vote Tuesday. OMC, Jefferson Healthcare and Forks Community Hospital held a joint board meeting in June in which the assembled commissioners decided to look for a contractual relationship with a Puget Sound-area hospital for a mutually beneficial partnership.
The “tertiary affiliate” will take referrals from the local hospitals for specialized care that isn’t available on the North Olympic Peninsula. In return, the affiliate will help the rural hospitals recruit doctors and implement such improvements as information technology and electronic medical records. The affiliate will also refer patients back to Peninsula hospitals for follow-up care. “This is not about giving up our independence,” Lewis said at the Olympic Medical commissioners’ meeting. “It is forming a contractual relationship with the tertiary medical center for certain services.” Turn
PA council meets Tribe in quest of $4 million to house on manager future Facility Tse-whit-zen By Tom Callis
Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — City Manager Kent Myers said earlier this week that he is seeking a job as the head of Columbia, Mo., to be closer to family. “That’s the driving force,” he said Tuesday as the City Council met behind closed doors to discuss the situation. Myers, who has family members in Texas and Arkansas, is one of four finalists for the city manager job in Columbia. Until Tuesday, he had declined to comment about the job opportunity. Candidates will be in Columbia on Friday, Saturday and Sunday to meet city leaders and be interviewed by the City Council. A decision could be made within a week, a newspaper there reported. Myers is scheduled to be out of
the office for the interview and related appointments today and Friday, said city spokeswoman Teresa Pierce. He will return Monday. The council met in executive session for 10 minutes Tuesday night to discuss personnel matters and legal issues related to Myers’ job search.
No decisions made No decisions were made in public session afterward, and Mayor Dan Di Guilio said the purpose of the closed-door meeting was to talk to the city’s attorney about “some of the different things that could occur if Kent leaves.” Asked if there could be any legal issues between Myers and the city if he is hired by Columbia, Di Guilio said, “I’m not aware of any at this point.” Turn

PORT ANGELES — In an effort to raise money for more than $4 million in projects — including a facility for artifacts from Tse-whit-zen — the Lower Elwha Klallam tribe is hosting an invitation-only gathering Friday of government, banking and nonprofits officials. Tribal Planning Director Arlene Wheeler said Wednesday that Friday’s get-together at the Elwha Klallam Heritage Center just east of downtown Port Angeles will be from 10:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. “They may know of funding somewhere, and that’s the whole idea behind this,” Wheeler said.

Arlene Wheeler, interim Lower Elwha Klallam tribal planning director, stands outside the Head Start building. “It’s all about collaboration.

U.S. Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Mountlake Terrace; and U.S. Rep. Norm Dicks, a Belfair Democrat who represents the 6th Congressional District, which includes the North Olympic Peninsula. Turn

First lady to write book about garden THERE’S A NEW author in the White House: Michelle Obama. The first lady has signed with the Crown Publishing Group for a book about the garden she started Obama on the South Lawn of the White House and the benefits of healthy eating. The book, currently untitled, is scheduled to come out in April 2012. Obama received no advance and will donate all proceeds to a charity or charities to be determined. The White House said the garden has yielded more than 2,000 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables. “We’ve gotten food out of the garden, and we can eat it and it’s good,” Obama said Wednesday during a brief telephone interview. “So we wanted to share the story with the rest of the nation and perhaps with the rest of the world.”

The new road section will run in a straight line from the Mount Walker slope, cross the river below the hatchery and join the highway at a point about a mile toward Quilcene. The old right-angle-turn bridge will be torn down, and access to the hatchery and Log Cabin Inn will be gained by a new side road.

Briefly: Nation Clinton doesn’t want to remain as secretary WASHINGTON — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Wednesday she does not want to stay in her job if President Barack Obama wins a second term in 2012. The nation’s top diplomat also firmly said she neither has plans to mount another White House bid nor interest in Clinton other posts, such as vice president or defense secretary. Clinton, visiting Cairo, was asked whether she would stay on in a second Obama term. She also was asked if she would like the jobs of president, vice president or defense secretary. She offered single word responses to each: “No.”
“During a visit last week with U.S. troops in Afghanistan, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates observed, ‘The closer you get to this fight, the better it looks,’” said Chairman Howard “Buck” McKeon, R-Calif. “Having just returned from a factfinding trip to Afghanistan a few weeks ago, I couldn’t agree more.”

U.S. life expectancy has been generally increasing since at least the 1940s, though some years it held steady and a few times it temporarily dipped.

Seawater dumped on reactor to avert crisis The Associated Press
ZAO, Japan — Japanese military helicopters dumped loads of seawater onto a stricken nuclear reactor today, trying to avoid full meltdowns as plant operators said they were close to finishing a new power line that could restore cooling systems and ease the crisis. U.S. officials in Washington, meanwhile, warned that the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant in northeastern Japan might be on the verge of spewing more radioactive material because water was gone from a storage pool that keeps spent nuclear fuel rods from overheating. The troubles at several of the plant’s reactors were set off when last week’s earthquake and tsunami knocked out power and ruined backup generators needed for their cooling systems, adding a major nuclear crisis for Japan as it dealt with twin natural disasters that killed more than 10,000 people and left hundreds of thousands homeless. A Japanese military CH-47 Chinook helicopter began dumping seawater on the damaged reactor of Unit 3 at the Fukushima complex at 9:48 a.m., said defense ministry spokeswoman

40-minute work window At least a dozen more loads were planned in the 40 minutes that each crew can operate before switching to limit radiation exposure, the ministry said.
The dumping was intended both to help cool the reactor and to replenish water in a pool holding spent fuel rods, Toyama said. The plant’s owner, Tokyo Electric Power Co., said earlier that the pool was nearly empty, which might cause the rods to overheat. The comments from U.S. officials suggested there were similar problems at another unit of the Dai-ichi complex.
Briefly: World Bahrain imposes lockdown amid violent protests MANAMA, Bahrain — Soldiers and riot police in Bahrain overran a protesters’ camp, imposed a 12-hour curfew and choked off movement nationwide Wednesday. Witnesses described helicopters firing on homes in a hunt for Shiites and attacking doctors treating the wounded, while the government called the demonstrators “outlaws” for demanding an end to the monarchy. The nation that once led the Middle East in entrepreneurial openness went into lockdown, its government propped up by troops from Sunni Gulf neighbors fearful for their own rule and the spread of Iran’s influence. The unrest that began last month increasingly looks like a sectarian showdown. The country’s Sunni leaders are desperate to hold power, and majority Shiites want more rights and an end to the monarchy.

West Coast radiation monitors used to quell exposure worries The Associated Press
SAN FRANCISCO — More radiation monitors are being deployed in the western United States and Pacific territories, as officials seek to mollify public concern over exposure from damaged nuclear plants in Japan, federal environmental regulators said. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency already monitors radiation throughout the area as part of its RadNet system, which measures levels in air, drinking water, milk and rain. The additional monitors are being deployed in response to the ongoing nuclear crisis in Japan, where emergency workers are attempting to cool overheated reactors damaged by last week’s magnitude 9.0 earthquake and tsunami.
Officials with the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission said they do not expect harmful radiation levels to reach the U.S. from Japan. “The agency decided out of an abundance of caution to send these deployable monitors in order to get some monitors on the ground closer to Japan,” said Jonathan Edwards, director of EPA’s radiation protection division. California already has 12 monitoring stations scattered throughout the state that test the air for radiation levels. EPA also has 40 so-called “deployable” monitors that can be moved around in cases of emergency. EPA told The Associated Press it is adding two more stations in Hawaii and two in Guam. In Alaska, officials are setting up three new monitors in Dutch Har-
bor, Nome and Juneau. The idea is to get a better geographic spread of monitoring equipment than currently exists, Edwards said. Once up and running, the stations will send real time data via satellite to EPA officials, who will make the data available to the public online. The monitors also contain two types of air filters that are collected and mailed to EPA’s data center in Alabama. The new stations are expected to be operational by the end of the week, Edwards said. The agency said it does not expect to see any spike in readings on the monitors, which Edwards said measure all forms of radiation that might exist after a nuclear event like the one in Japan.

World: Dinosaur fossil discovered in Angola
A MAN WHO claimed to be a member of the storied Rockefeller family said he had nothing to do with the killing of a California man more than 25 years ago, his lawyer said Wednesday — a day after Los Angeles prosecutors charged the man with murder in the case. Christian Karl Gerhartsreiter, 50, is a German national who came to the United States in the 1970s and assumed many identities, including Clark Rockefeller, a supposed heir to the Rockefeller oil fortune. He is currently serving a four- to five-year sentence for a 2009 conviction in Boston in the kidnapping of his 7-year-old daughter.
NEARLY FIVE MONTHS after her strong bid to unseat U.S. Sen. Harry Reid ended in defeat, Sharron Angle said Wednesday she’ll run for Congress again in an effort to “stop the liberal agenda.” Angle told supporters via YouTube, Twitter and an e-mail that she will pursue one of Nevada’s four U.S. House seats in 2012. “With your help we can once again change the country’s direction like we started in 2010,” she wrote in an e-mail to supporters. Reid beat Angle by 6 percentage points in November after a bitter campaign.
POLICE IN OHIO said a man robbed a bank and then tried to flee on board a public bus, where officers eventually caught up with him. Dayton police Sgt. Moe Perez told the Dayton Daily News the suspect got away with cash from a downtown KeyBank branch at around 10 a.m. Wednesday. Police were told by witnesses that they saw the man catch a bus about two blocks away. Officers followed the route of the bus and pulled it over less than a mile away, near the campus of Sinclair Community College. The suspect was arrested without incident and the money was recovered, police said.
SCIENTISTS SAID THEY discovered the first fossil of a dinosaur in Angola, and that it’s a new creature, heralding a research renaissance in a country slowly emerging from decades of war. A paper published Wednesday in the Annals of the Brazilian Academy of Sciences describes a long-necked, planteating sauropod, among the largest creatures ever to have walked the earth. The fossil was found along with fish and shark teeth in what would have been a sea bed 90 million years ago, leading its discoverers to believe the dinosaur might have been washed into the sea and torn apart by ancient sharks.

Bail posted by accused drunken driver By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News
ing Attorney John Troberg accused Steim of tampering with a witness. Troberg filed a motion for determination of probable cause of witness tampering Wednesday. The motion contains excerpts from telephone conversations that Steim had with her mother and her passenger in the wreck, Nicole Boucher. Steim will be charged with witness tampering, a Class C felony, in her next court appearance today at 3 p.m. Ron Sukert, Clallam County jail superintendent, said the judge doubled Steim’s bail. “So it’s $100,000 total, rather than $50,000 on one and $100,000 on the other,” Sukert said. Steim, who was released at about 3 p.m. Wednesday, was responsible for paying 10 percent, or $10,000, of the total bail amount. The bonding agency is responsible for the rest, Sukert said. Taylor on Tuesday imposed more conditions of Steim’s release. She must wear an alcohol-detection bracelet, follow a curfew and have no contact with Boucher. The no-driving condition remains in place. Court records show that Steim asked Boucher and her mother to tell attorneys that she drank more alcohol after the wreck and before the ambulance arrived. Troberg said in court that the alleged tampering throws off the validity of the blood-alcohol test.
PORT ANGELES — A 24-year-old Port Angeles woman charged with vehicular homicide in connection with a March 6 wreck that killed a home health nurse from Crescent Beach posted bail for the second time in six days. Amber D. Steim, who pleaded not guilty to vehicular homicide under the influence of a l c o h o l Steim March 9, posted a $100,000 bail bond Wednesday. She is accused of being drunk when the pickup truck she was driving crossed the centerline on state Highway 112 between Joyce and Port Angeles and struck another vehicle head-on. The driver of the other vehicle, Ellen J. DeBondt, 44, a home health nurse affiliated with Olympic Medical Center, died at the scene. Court records show that Steim’s blood-alcohol level was 0.239 percent after the wreck. The legal limit in Washington state is 0.08 percent. A Clallam County Superior Court judge lowered Steim’s bail from $100,000 to $50,000 on March 9. Steim paid the 10 percent bail bond the next day, last Thursday, and went home under the court-imposed condition that she not drive. ________ The same judge — S.

PA to extend paving downtown By Tom Callis
Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — City Hall will spend a little bit more money on the First Street stormwater project in order to repave more of the downtown roadway. As part of the project, both lanes of the road between Valley and Laurel streets in Port Angeles are to be repaved. The city has opted to extend that work to the south lane of the road between Laurel and Lincoln streets. The north lane of that block will be fog sealed as previously planned. The additional work will cost $85,000 and include rebuilding the concrete panel underneath. City Public Works and Utilities Director Glenn Cutler said the city has the money within its budget for
he First Street project is intended to remove enough stormwater from the city’s sewer system to offset the contribution of sewage from the Lower Elwha Klallam reservation. the project. The council approved the allocation unanimously Tuesday. Cutler said the north lane is in better shape and doesn’t need the same work. The project, under way downtown, involves installing a new stormwater pipe from Valley to Laurel streets, repaving much of the road, adding bike lanes and adding or replacing crosswalks. The project is estimated to cost $2.25 million, according to the city. But nearly all of that is covered by the National Park Service.

Elwha Klallam reservation. The tribe will be connected to the city’s sewers because it’s expected that its septic tanks will become unusable as the ground water level rises when two Elwha River dams are removed. The park service agreed to fund a stormwater disconnect project to offset the impact on the city’s sewage overflow problem. The sewer system is scheduled to be built by June 2012. The stormwater pipe will be installed by Memorial Day (May 30). The entire project is expected to be done in June. The removal of the Elwha River dams is scheduled to begin in September.

Spring Boating Symposium to debut By Charlie Bermant Peninsula Daily News
PORT TOWNSEND — The sponsors of the inaugural Spring Boating Symposium, which takes place this weekend, are hoping the event will provide a bookend for the more general-interest Wooden Boat Festival, which occurs each fall. “The Wooden Boat Festival is open to anyone who is interested in boats,” said Wooden Boat Foundation board member Peter Geerlofs, who helped to develop the boating symposium, scheduled Friday through Sunday at the Northwest Maritime Center, 431 Water St., Port Townsend. “The symposium is more technical and specific, where people can learn how to refine their skills and how to
navigate specific conditions,” Geerlofs said. The symposium also is more exclusive and expensive because it’s limited to about 200 people and carries a $275 registration fee for members and $295 for nonmembers. Although most of the symposium is restricted to participants who are paying the full freight, the general public can attend two evening lectures. The Friday and Saturday evening presentations, both at 7 p.m. on the second floor of the maritime center, are open to the general public for a $30 admission fee. On Friday, Lin and Larry Pardey will present “The Compelling Power of Adventure.” Kaci Cronkhite, director of the Wooden Boat Festival and the boating symposium,

Seaducktress owner Peter Geerlofs, left, and shipwright Ben Tyler work on the boat’s solar panels. described the Pardeys as “the most prolific sailing writers and voyagers in the world.” She said their presence is drawing many others to the symposium.
On Saturday, Capt. Mark Schrader, a two-time recordholding solo circumnavigator, will talk about his most recent scientific and educational voyage around North and South America.
Geerlofs said he would like to make future symposiums more open and use a model based on the Port Townsend Film Festival “where people can attend some events without having to pay for the whole thing.” “This is the first year, and it will evolve,” he said. Geerlofs does not expect a lot of people to bring their boats to the symposium, saying more participants will arrive by car “and patronize some of Port Townsend’s restaurants and hotels.” In one way, the symposium is also more inclusive than the Wooden Boat Festival — which is scheduled Sept. 9-11 — since the participants study techniques that pertain to metal boats. During the symposium, nine special boats will be featured, allowing attendees
hands-on access to the latest innovations. All boats feature special rigging, heating, electronics, canvas, design considerations and have cruised Pacific Northwest waters. One of these boats is Geerlofs’ own, The Seaduckteress, a 50-foot yacht that incorporates solar power and other energy efficiencies. The metal boat is built for rough seas, as “you wouldn’t want to go up to Alaska or cross the Pacific in a wooden boat,” Geerlofs said.

Without the historic district designation, neither the former fire hall, built in 1931, or the Carnegie, which was the city’s first library, could be listed as historical buildings because their interiors have been altered. The courthouse is already listed as a historical building. County Administrator Jim Jones said the county

Francis St. “It makes a lot of sense
that if we’re going to honor our past and keep these buildings in such a manner for all time for their historical significance, this is the way to do it,” he said. There are no immediate plans to relocate the center to the former fire hall, which sits next to Veterans Memorial Park. The building is known to be in need of extensive repairs. A $40,000 study to determine just how much needs to be done is under way. The city contributed $25,000, with the rest com-
ing from the county. State grant money can be used to repair the building because it’s now on the state’s historical register. The building has been on the city’s surplus list since 2007. City Manager Kent Myers said the City Council will consider removing it from that list at its next meeting.

That’s where the state Department of Transportation tried and failed to build a graving yard to construct bridge components to replace the eastern half of the Hood Canal Bridge. “Everyone, not only locally here with the tribes, but nationally, is really concerned how much impact [budget cuts] will have on tribal programs and provid-
ing services to the community from youth to our elders,” Charles said, adding funding cutbacks also have affected Native American veterans.
Head Start building The tribe has outgrown the Head Start building, which is on a flood plain, Charles said. It needs to be moved to higher ground, she said. The building was opened late for classes last week after a tsunami advisory was issued in the wake of a
massive earthquake in Japan. The need for a new Head Start building, which houses about 40 students — not including Early Head Start children — has not abated even though the tribe has been hit hard by state and federal budget cuts, Charles said. The $2 million construction project is “shovelready,” Wheeler said. “We have all the design work done, and the land is cleared.” Head Start has been in
the building since 1976. After a 10:30 a.m. blessing and welcome from tribal leadership Friday, participants will take tours of the Tse-whit-zen site and the food bank and Head Start buildings. The day’s events will include a lunch featuring traditional, stick-baked salmon, Wheeler said.

Removing the Elwha and Glines Canyon dams will allow fish to access spawning habitat in more than 70 miles of river and tributary stream, most of which is protected inside Olympic National Park. The 45-mile-long Elwha River is the historic home of all five species of Pacific salmon.

The dam removal is the largest in the nation’s history. For more information, visit www.nps.gov/olym or share information on the Elwha River Restoration Facebook page.
Father offers alibi for son charged in King parade bomb in Spokane The Associated Press
SPOKANE — The father of a Kettle Falls man charged with leaving a bomb along the route of Spokane’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade said in two television interviews that his son was caring for him when the bomb was discovered and could not have planted it. Bill Harpham also told KHQ-TV and KXLY-TV on Tuesday that his son, Kevin Harpham, 36, frequently talked to racist groups on the Internet and that he might have had a hand in building the bomb, even if he didn’t plant it along the parade route. Bill Harpham said his son was caring for him when the backpack bomb was found Jan. 17 and that he could not have driven the 160 miles to and from his home in Kettle Falls — a 90-minute trip each way — to plant the
device in Spokane. He said he needs his son’s care as he recovers from a stroke suffered in November. Tom Rice, an assistant U.S. attorney in Spokane, declined to comment, as did the local FBI office. Public defender Roger Peven also declined to comment. Kevin Harpham, 36, was arrested March 9 and is being held in the Spokane County Jail without bail.
Charges He is charged with one count of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and one count of possessing an unregistered explosive. His case will be presented to a federal grand jury Tuesday for possible indictments. The bomb was discovered before the start of the parade and disarmed by the bomb squad. There were no injuries. The Southern Poverty
Law Center has said Kevin Harpham made more than 1,000 postings on a website used by a group called the Vanguard News Network. A telephone message left at the home of Bill Harpham was not immediately returned Wednesday. But he told the two television stations that he and his son were making a lunch of hamburgers and beans in Kettle Falls as they watched newscasts about the discovery of the bomb. “It saddens me to think that he might have had a hand in building it,” Harpham told KHQ during an interview in his Kettle Falls home. He did not elaborate on his suspicion. Bill Harpham said his son talked to racist groups on the Internet regularly. But he said Kevin Harpham never acted on racial hate.
Death and Memorial Notice ALMA SCHMIDT PAHL February 8, 1926 March 10, 2011 Alma Schmidt Pahl began this world on February 8, 1926, as Alma Mueller, the daughter of Ferdinand and Justine Mueller of Romania. Alma was rich with stories of her childhood, having survived a flood, world war and a long difficult journey back to Germany. She married Albert Schmidt on February 7, 1947, and some time after the birth of their daughter, Hildegard, they made the difficult decision to immigrate to America, where they saw opportunity for a better life. In 1952, they left family and friends behind and started this new journey. Alma shared the story of the long boat trip, seasick below deck in bed the entire time. Finally arriving in New York only to discover that they still had a long train ride ahead of them to Seattle, where they would be met by their sponsors, William and Louella Lawrence, and learn yet again, that their journey was not over. They now would travel by car many hours before arriving at their final destination, Port Angeles. Eventually, they would buy a home in Agnew and begin farming. Alma was passionate about the farm and had such love for the animals, especially the cows. She also took great pride in
Mrs. Pahl her garden and many flowers. Everyone marveled at all she was able to do. Few could keep pace with her, she had such a powerful work ethic. On January 15, 1958, their son, Jerry, was born. The farm was laborintensive, but when time permitted on a Saturday or Sunday evening, Alma enjoyed playing Whist with friends, always accompanied with great food and lots of laughter. After Albert’s death in 1977, Alma would eventually meet and marry David Pahl, turn over her beloved farm to her son, Jerry, and move to Richmond, British Columbia, leaving farm life behind. She adapted to city life, acquiring new friends and a new card game, Rook. Alma was to then take what would be the first of many vacations to Hawaii. Upon David’s passing, Alma moved back to Port Angeles and built her final
home on a piece of farm property. She positioned her house so she could keep vigil over the farm and was never shy in offering her advice to Jerry. Her yard was filled with beautiful flowers, fruit trees and a bountiful garden. Through mutual friends, Alma was introduced to Heinz Mendes, and for many years they would be companions, enjoying vacations in Hawaii and countless very spirited games of Chinese checkers. Alma was a longtime member of St. Matthew Lutheran Church and delighted in preparing kuchen and twisties when it was her turn to provide refreshments for coffee hour after church service. Alma died peacefully in her home of age-related causes on March 10, 2011. She is survived by her son, Jerry (Mary); daughter, Hildegard (Jack); grandchildren, Shawn (Heather), Krysten (Todd), Holly, Nathan, Melissa, Ben and Thomas; and great-granddaughters, Sydney and Leah. There will be a graveside service at 11 a.m. Saturday, March 19, 2011, at Mount Angeles Memorial Cemetery, 45 South Monroe Road, Port Angeles. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County, 540 East Eighth Street, Port Angeles, WA 98362.

PORT ANGELES — The head of Nippon’s Port Angeles paper mill said he’s not concerned that plans for a proposed biomass energy plant in Mason County were dropped earlier this week. AREVA and Duke Energy, the companies that planned to build the $250 million 55-megawatt ADAGE electrical power plant near Shelton, said the decision was prompted by economic concerns. Harold Norlund, Nippon Paper Industries USA mill manager, said he doesn’t share the same concerns for the economic viability of the Port Angeles mill’s project. That’s because, he said, Nippon’s project would be much more efficient because the steam and energy produced also would be used to manufacture paper. “That makes quite a difference in your input costs,” he said. Nippon Paper Industries USA plans a $71 million upgrade of its biomass boiler
that would double the amount of wood waste burned to produce steam to make telephone-book paper and newsprint. The boiler also would generate up to 20 megawatts of electrical power. The company could then sell credits for the electrical power. The Port Townsend Paper Corp. also has plans to upgrade its biomass boiler in a $55 million project that would generate up to 24 megawatts of electrical power. Port Townsend Paper mill officials did not return calls requesting comment. A spokeswoman for one of the environmental groups appealing both biomass projects said there’s more to it than efficiency.
Tax credit Gretchen Brewer of Port Townsend AirWatchers said she thinks biomass projects aren’t economically viable and that some can make it work only because of a federal tax credit. “I just think that the fact
they are having to depend on these huge taxpayer subsidies, that tells you right there,” she said. Nippon’s project is eligible for about $20 million in federal tax credits. The appeal of Nippon’s project will be heard April 7 and May 2-3 by the state Shoreline Hearings Board. An appeal of the Port Townsend mill’s project will be before the state Pollution Control Hearings Board on June 2-3. In addition to Port Townsend AirWatchers, groups appealing the Nippon plant’s plans are Olympic Forest Coalition, Olympic Environmental Council, No Biomass Burn of Seattle, the Center for Environmental Law and Policy of Spokane, the World Temperate Rainforest Network and the Cascade Chapter of the Sierra Club. The Center for Environmental Law and Policy of Spokane and the Cascade Chapter of the Sierra Club did not join the appeal of the Port Townsend mill’s facility.

Death and Memorial Notice JOHN EILMAN February 20, 1918 March 14, 2011 John Eilman, at the age of 93, died at home on Monday, March 14, 2011, in Sequim, where he had lived for 30 years. John was born to Arnold and Anna Eilman in Detroit, Michigan, on February 20, 1918. His family moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in 1920, where he lived and worked until his retirement. In 1946, John married Jean Cerletty, his wife of 64½ years. Mr. Eilman enlisted in the Army in 1943 and was assigned to the European Theater of Operations. Serving in the 354th Company of the Army Corps of Engineers, John took part in the Omaha Beach Landing, which was the beginning of the Allied Invasion of Europe in World War II. Honorably discharged in 1945, John trained as an ironworker and walked the high-rise buildings in
Mr. Eilman East Chicago, throwing and catching the hot rivets used in steel construction. John was a lifetime member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, a member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, and a charter member of SARC.

Peninsula Daily News for Thursday, March 17, 2011
Japan: Stay cool on nuclear crisis IN THE 1979 movie “The China Syndrome,” reporter Kimberly Wells (played by Jane Fonda) witnesses an accident at a nuclear power plant Cal and then uncovers a plot Thomas to keep it a secret in order to protect the power company’s billion-dollar investment. The film was a gift to the political left, which at the time opposed the pursuit of nuclear energy to reduce our addiction to foreign oil. In some liberal circles, that opposition remains strong. The film, along with real-life accidents such as Three Mile Island (also in 1979), in which no one was killed, and Chernobyl (1986), which, according to the World Nuclear Association, “killed two Chernobyl plant workers on the night of the accident, and a further 28 people
within a few weeks, as a result of acute radiation poisoning,” account for much of our modern thinking about all things nuclear. Other films, like “Dr. Strangelove,” “Fail-Safe” and “On the Beach” — along with the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which ended World War II and launched the Cold War with the Soviet Union in which “mutual assured destruction” (MAD) and civil defense drills became the norm — make us nervous about what the unrestrained power of the atom can do. The nuclear reactors at Japan’s Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant were damaged by the tsunami, not the earthquake, and not by faulty construction or worker error, as was the case at Chernobyl and to a lesser extent Three Mile Island. The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission has significantly tightened standards since those incidents, but no regulation or safety precaution can offer a 100 percent guarantee against an accident or natural disaster. Politicians tend to overreact to such things and stoke public fear.
The otherwise cautious and principled German Chancellor Angela Merkel quickly announced plans to shut down seven of her country’s nuclear power plants pending a safety review. U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu, a proponent of nuclear energy, told members of a House subcommittee on Tuesday that, “The American people should have full confidence that the United States has rigorous safety regulations in place to ensure that our nuclear power is generated safely and responsibly.” He faces off against nuclear energy opponents, including Rep. Ed Markey, D-Mass., who was recently quoted as saying, “We have to listen to what is happening in Japan and protect ourselves and our people.” Run for the hills! Chicken Little lives! The Houston Chronicle quoted Peter Cardillo, chief market economist for Avalon Partners, a brokerage house in New York: “It’s a situation where you sell (your stocks now), and you ask questions later,” thus indulging
Peninsula Voices Low taxes for all Tax the rich some more. Because they are primarily the folks who create the most jobs and employ the most people thereby broadening the tax base. Does not it only make practical sense to keep taxes low for all so that the revenue will be collected at a rate more evenly distributed, also allowing for greater profit financially, creating an atmosphere where companies can grow, hiring more employees and even further broadening the tax base? I’ll leave readers with this concept penned by Thomas Jefferson: “To take from one because it is thought that his own industry and that of his father’s has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the
in self-fulfilling prophecy as Japanese and American markets dipped. The Obama administration continues to stonewall when it comes to exploring for new sources of oil in or near American territory. (It has approved just two deepwater drilling sites since the BP oil spill in the Gulf, which, contrary to doomsday predictions, did not foul beaches for a decade or cripple the seafood industry, which seems to have recovered well in plenty of time for the summer vacation rush.) Too many politicians continue to oppose coal exploration, an American natural resource. Without advances in nuclear energy, the U.S. will continue to face not only the petroleum price equivalent of mood swings, but also deepen our dependency on foreign oil, a dependence that will ultimately lead to a host of domestic and international problems. Cooler heads must prevail and conclusions avoided until a full assessment of the Japan disaster is known.

Do-gooders’ hubris State Senate Bill 5626 and House Bill 1837 would create cultural access authorities by authorizing a new bureaucracy, a “taxing authority” to impose sales tax, use tax and property tax similar to the taxing authority now existing for schools, fire stations and transit authorities. The purpose of this legislation is to authorize formation of cultural access authorities, to authorize funding for public school cultural access programs and to support cultural organizations subject to approval. How many taxpayers wrote or telephoned their
representatives with a request for such programs? I’d like to see these requests. Isn’t this yet more hubris from do-gooders thinking they know what’s
best for us? We find no limit to the cunning ways our legislators attempt to circumvent the pressing necessity of reducing spending in Olympia.
Science cannot prevent earthquakes or tsunamis, but that does not keep people from wanting to live near the shore. Scientists and engineers have made great progress in addressing safety issues raised by Three Mile Island and Chernobyl, but again, nothing is foolproof or there would be no traffic accidents or airplane crashes. And we still drive and fly, don’t we? We need clean energy that can be developed on our own territory. Nuclear power, in conjunction with the discovery of more oil and the use of coal, natural gas, bio fuels, wind and solar power, offers the best option for the foreseeable future. ________ Cal Thomas is a Fox TV network commentator and syndicated news columnist.

fest yet another legislative effort to sneak in an entirely new bureaucracy by encouraging its funding at the county level from taxpayers already floundering in government debt and increasing costs of living.

Japan: Shades of Hiroshima in disaster A REPORTER, DESCRIBING the devastation of one city in Japan, wrote: “It looks as if a monster Amy steamroller Goodman had passed over it and squashed it out of existence. “I write these facts . . . as a warning to the world.” The reporter was Wilfred Burchett, writing from Hiroshima, Japan, on Sept. 5, 1945. Burchett was the first Western reporter to make it to Hiroshima after the atomic bomb was dropped there. He reported on the strange illness that continued to kill people, even a full month after that first, dreadful use of nuclear weapons against humans. His words could well describe the scenes of annihilation in northeastern Japan today. Given the worsening catastrophe at the Fukushima nuclear power plant, his grave warning to the world remains all too relevant. The disaster deepens at the Fukushima complex in the
aftermath of the largest recorded earthquake in Japanese history and the tsunami that followed, killing thousands. Explosions in Fukushima reactors No. 1 and No. 3 released radiation that was measured by a U.S. Navy vessel as far away as 100 miles, prompting the ship to move farther out to sea. A third explosion happened at reactor No. 2, leading many to speculate that the vital containment vessel, holding uranium undergoing fission, may have been breached. Then reactor No. 4 caught fire, even though it wasn’t running when the earthquake hit. Each reactor also has spent nuclear fuel stored with it, and that fuel can cause massive fires, releasing more radiation into the air. The cooling systems and their backups all have failed, and a small crew of courageous workers remains on-site, despite the life-threatening radiation, trying to pump seawater into the damaged structures to cool the radioactive fuel. President Barack Obama had hoped to usher in a “nuclear renaissance,” and proposed $36 billion in new federal, taxpayersubsidized loan guarantees to entice energy corporations to

build new plants (adding to the $18.5 billion already approved during the George W. Bush administration). The first energy corporation in line to receive the public largesse was Southern Co., for two reactors slated for Georgia. The last time new construction on a nuclear power plant in the U.S. was ordered, and ultimately built, was back in 1973, when Obama was a seventhgrader at the Punahou School on Honolulu. The Three Mile Island disaster in 1979 and the Chernobyl disaster in 1986 effectively shut down new commercial nuclear projects in the U.S. Nevertheless, this country remains the largest producer of commercial nuclear power in the world. The 104 licensed commercial nuclear plants are old, close to the end of their originally projected life spans. Plant owners are petitioning the federal government to extend their operating licenses. These licenses are controlled by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). On March 10, the NRC issued a press release “regarding renewal of the operating license for the Vermont Yankee Nuclear
Power Station near Brattleboro, Vt., for an additional 20 years. “The NRC staff expects to issue the renewed license soon.” Harvey Wasserman, of NukeFree.org, told me, “The first reactor at Fukushima is identical to the Vermont Yankee plant. . . . “There are 23 reactors in the United States that are identical or close to identical to the first Fukushima reactor.” A majority of Vermonters, including the state’s governor, Peter Shumlin, support shutting down the Vermont Yankee reactor, designed and built by General Electric. The Japanese nuclear crisis has sparked global repercussions. Protests erupted across Europe. Eva Joly, a French member of the European Parliament, said at one protest, “We know how to get out of the nuclear plants: We need renewable energy, we need windmills, we need geothermal, and we need solar energy.” Switzerland has halted plans to re-license its reactors, and 10,000 protesters in Stuttgart prompted German Chancellor Angela Merkel to order an immediate shutdown of Germany’s seven pre-1980 nuclear plants. In the United States, Rep. Ed Markey, D-Mass., said, “What is

Journalist Wilfred Burchett described, for the first time, the “atomic plague,” writing: “In these hospitals I found people who, when the bomb fell, suffered absolutely no injuries, but now are dying from the uncanny after-effects. “For no apparent reason their health began to fail.” More than 65 years after he sat in the rubble with his battered Hermes typewriter and typed his warning to the world, what have we learned? ________ Amy Goodman hosts the radio and TV program “Democracy Now!” Her column appears every Thursday.

Bracket getting watered down FIELD DAY COULDN’T come soon enough when I was a wee grade-schooler. Foot races, long jump competitions, tugs o’ Matt war against the Schubert teachers . . . that sort of stuff was right up my alley. I reveled in the competition and delighted in the opportunity to display my athletic talents to my classmates, especially curly haired Crystal Callahan. Having peaked physically, mentally and socially at age 10, I dominated most of the events like a pintsized Bruce Jenner (sans plastic surgery). It was all so glorious and great, right up until the part where they handed out the awards. After all of my athletic achievements, all of the dramatic victories, what was my reward? The same “participant” ribbon that the kid who spent the whole day eating his own boogers got. What a disappointment. I’d imagine that’s the same thing Nebraska must have felt when it was thrown onto the same field as Washington in this year’s Holiday Bowl. The Huskers finish 10-3 after spending most of the year ranked in the top 20, and their reward is a bowl game against the same team it destroyed 56-21 months earlier? A 6-6 team that needed to win three straight games at the end of the season just to qualify for a bowl? Thanks to the oversaturation of bowl games, and the ease with which teams can now qualify, that ended up being the case. My point: The college football postseason has been watered down to the point that only eight of the 35 bowl games this year featured two ranked teams. There was a time when such bowl matchups were widely ridiculed. Now, it’s just par for the course.
First Four? That brings us to the NCAA’s decision to add three more games to the men’s basketball tournament this year. In an effort to squeeze three more teams into the tourney — a play-in game added in 2001 put the field at 65 — the NCAA gave us the First Four. These four games are played on the Tuesday and Wednesday preceding the tournament, with two games coming between 11 seeds and two others between 16 seeds. Thus, qualifying for the tournament has become easier, albeit by a small increment. Unfortunately, it seems only a matter of time before the same thing that has happened to the bowl season over time happens to the NCAA tournament. Talk of expanding to a 96-team bracket has already been bandied about the past few years. Once that happens, regular season achievement — done over the course of several months — will lose even more weight. And soon enough, everyone will be getting a “participant” ribbon. Sorry, but 64 is where I draw the line. It’s a big enough number to give access to all of the smaller schools, and a small enough one that inclusion is enough to validate a genuinely good team. That’s why any pool I run — provided gambling were legal, of course — would not require brackets to be turned in until Thursday morning. That, my dear Peninsulites, is when the NCAA tournament starts. Everything else? Just a bunch of play-in games.

Yet that increase wasn’t enough to translate into more days on the water for anglers inside Strait of Juan de Fuca and eastward. Rather, it was just enough to counteract two straight years of
Outdoors exceeding harvest guidelines for the sport set in Puget Sound. “This year’s quota, together with shorter seasons adopted last year, will bring the catch more in line with the allowable harvest,” state Department of Fish and Wildlife Coastal Policy Coordinator Heather Reed said in a news release. “We took a big step toward stabilizing the fishery last year, and the higher quota will help to accommodate the growing popularity of halibut fishing in Puget Sound.” This year’s catch quota for Puget Sound and the Strait of Juan de Fuca is 58,155 pounds, up from 50,542 pounds in 2010. Like last year, most areas of
the Sound will be open for halibut fishing three days a week — Thursday, Friday and Saturday. That includes Marine Area 6 (eastern Strait of Juan de Fuca) and 9 (Admiralty Inlet), which will be open May 5 through May 29. Those anglers will get an extra day of fishing Memorial Day weekend on Sunday, May 29. Marine Area 5 (Sekiu) will be open May 26 through June 18 on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Area 12 will remain closed because of low dissolved-oxygen conditions. In coastal areas, the structure of the coastal halibut season will be similar to last year. Marine Area 3 (LaPush) and 4 (Neah Bay) will open May 12, two days per week (Thursdays and Saturdays) through May 21.
If sufficient quota remains, the fishery will reopen the week of June 2. If sufficient quota remains after that, the fishery will reopen starting June 16. The 2011 catch quota is 108,792 pounds on the North Coast. “This year’s coastal quotas are up by more than 17,000 pounds,” Reed said. “Depending on catch rates during the course of the season, that could translate to extra time on the water in some areas.” All areas open to fishing have a one-fish daily catch limit, with no minimum size, a possession limit of one fish while on the vessel, and a possession limit of two fish in any form once the angler is on the shore.

The Associated Press (2)
The Gonzaga men’s basketball team holds up the trophy after defeating Saint Mary’s 75-63 in the West Coast Conference tournament championship game on March 7 Las Vegas.
Gonzaga is ready to take on short-handed St. John’s today The Associated Press
DENVER — The only shooting for St. John’s senior D.J. Kennedy at this tournament involves a video camera. Kennedy, one of the Red Storm’s most versatile players, tore his right ACL during the Big East tournament. The injury hasn’t stopped him from soaking up the moment at the NCAA tournament. He’s capturing his team’s journey with his camera as the sixth-seeded Red Storm (21-11) face No. 11 seed Gonzaga (24-9) in the opening round of the Southeast region tonight. Kennedy’s even holding out a slim hope that maybe, just maybe, he might be inserted into the game, possibly for a late free throw. A guy can dream, right? Especially here, on this stage. “If they need some, I know I can go in there and do that,” said Kennedy, who plans to have surgery on his knee in early April. Kennedy paused, glancing down as he sat in the Red Storm’s dressing room. He quietly added, “I can’t wear the jersey. It would get to me too much.” With Kennedy’s loss, the Red Storm lost not only its team leader, but its top rebounder, as well. Asked about the significance of Kennedy’s absence from the lineup, St. John’s coach Steve Lavin didn’t mince words. “A devastating blow,” said Lavin, who’s in his first season in charge of the program brought to prominence decades ago by Lou Carnesecca. Given Gonzaga’s size — the Bulldogs have nine players at 6-foot-5 or taller — Lavin will start 6-8 senior Sean Evans in Kennedy’s place. He was a starter the last two years, but has been coming off the bench this season. “It’s humbling knowing the reason you got in there
is because of one of your closest friends is hurt,” Evans said. “Our focus is on the game. But it’s also on D.J., knowing what he put in for us. Him not being there is a big motivation for us.” The Red Storm are trying not to dwell on the loss of Kennedy, the player they relied so heavily on all season. “There’s no one player that has to step up to try to offset the loss of D.J.,” Lavin said. “We need to do it collectively as a group, instead of one of our players trying to be a hero.” Kennedy vows to contribute in other ways, such as doling out a few pointers, a couple of observations from his courtside seat on the bench. “He is a great coach,” Evans said. “He might have a future in this.” Down the road, maybe. Just not now. “I’ve got to show them it’s not about me, it’s about the team, the group, the family we have,” Kennedy said. “This is a business trip.” The business of basketball is booming again for St. John’s. The Red Storm are back in the tournament for the first time since 2002. They’re looking for their first win on this stage since 2000, when they beat Northern Arizona in the opening round. St. John’s was then bounced from the tournament by Gonzaga, 82-76. The Bulldogs are hardly strangers to the tournament, making their 13th straight appearance. This trip, in particular, means an awful lot to Gonzaga coach Mark Few. His team started the season slow and there were times when an appearance looked like a long shot. “You just keep plugging along,” Few said. “You get your team to just try to get back to doing the things that they had been successful at, try to
Gonzaga’s Steven Gray holds up the net after cutting it down after Gonzaga defeated Saint Mary’s for the WCC title. maximize that, minimize some of the other things.” Gonzaga found its stride late in the season, winning nine straight games, including the West Coast Conference tournament title game against Saint Mary’s to secure an automatic bid. “This team was able to really draw a line in the sand, started winning games when we had to,” said senior guard Steven Gray, who’s averaging nearly 14 points and four assists this season. “It was tough realizing
that this team, who’s put in a lot of time, really had some growth, wasn’t potentially going to get this opportunity to play in one of the greatest sporting events out there.” And yet here the Zags are, playing a team they feel they stack up well against. “They’re a feisty team,” Gonzaga center Robert Sacre said. “We know that because they battled in the Big East, so we have to respect them that way.”
Georgia has Thomas on its mind Washington plays Bulldogs on Friday night The Associated Press
ATHENS, Ga. — Gerald Robinson says playing against Southeastern Conference point guards should prepare him for his NCAA tournament challenge against Washington’s Isaiah Thomas. The problem is Robinson and his teammates on Wednesday couldn’t name a guard in the SEC who compares with the Huskies’ 5-foot-9 star. Georgia coach Mark Fox said Thomas is “unique” and even rises above comparisons with another 5-foot-9 former Washington star, Nate Robinson, who is now in the NBA with Oklahoma City.
“No, he’s better than Nate,” Fox said firmly. “He’s a better player than Nate, and Nate is obviously good enough to be a pro, but Isaiah Thomas is terrific.” The Bulldogs practiced in Athens on Wednesday before leaving for their bus trip to Charlotte to play the Huskies on Friday night. Georgia (21-11) is the No. 10 seed in the East Regional. Washington (23-10) is the No. 7 seed. The winner could face No. 2 seed North Carolina on Sunday. Robinson and Dustin Ware are expected to lead Georgia’s defensive efforts against Washington in Friday night’s game in Charlotte.

Nuke crisis rocks stocks Peninsula Daily News
NEW YORK — There was no respite for weary investors Wednesday as deepening worries about the nuclear crisis in Japan prompted another sharp sell-off, leaving stocks in negative territory for the year. The anxiety was heightened by increasing volatility as stocks, bonds and currencies alike swung sharply through the course of a trading day punctuated by worsening news reports about Japan as well as word that police and riot troops had clashed again with protesters in Bahrain. “There is so much uncertainty about the Japanese situation and the Middle East that people are just struggling to quantify them,” said Barry Knapp, head of American equity strategy at Barclays Capital. Japanese stocks seemed set for another volatile trading day today amid reports that foreign financial firms are pushing Japanese stock market officials to halt trading. The Nikkei 225 index was down more than 4 percent in early trading. The Japanese yen strengthened further Wednesday, striking a 16-year high, on speculation that Japanese investors may be selling their overseas holdings of assets like U.S. Treasuries to bring capital home to help pay for reconstruction after the earthquake and tsunami. Investors have been hit by one hard-to-foresee event after another in the last year, leaving them bewildered, Knapp said. Oil prices rebounded Wednesday after falling sharply earlier in the Tsuyoshi Yoshioka/Yomiuri Shimbun week. Oil climbed back above $98 a bar- A monitor displaying the conversion rate of the U.S. dollar rel as violence intensified in North against the Japanese yen is shown at a foreign exchange firm in Africa and the Middle East. Tokyo. The dollar plunged to 76.53 Japanese yen late Wednesday
in New York, falling far below the April 1995 low of 79.75 yen.
Wholesale prices up In other financial news Wednesday, the U.S. Labor Department’s Producer Price Index rose a seasonally adjusted 1.6 percent in February as higher energy costs and the steepest rise in food prices in nearly four decades drove wholesale prices up last month by the most in nearly two years. But excluding those categories,
inflation was tame. Food prices soared 3.9 percent last month, the biggest gain since November 1974. Harsh winter freezes in Florida, Texas and other southern states sent fresh vegetable prices soaring, representing 70 percent of the increase. Tomatoes, green peppers and let-
tuce all more than doubled in price. Gasoline prices also spiked in February and are even higher now. The national average price was $3.55 a gallon Wednesday, up 42 cents from a month earlier, according to the AAA’s Daily Fuel Gauge. In addition to rising prices, the weak housing market could also drag on the economy.
Government panel: Verdict mixed on auto, bank bailout The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — The government’s bailout of banks, auto makers and insurers helped prevent a more severe economic crisis, but might have sowed the seeds of the next one, a congressional watchdog group said Wednesday in its final report. The Congressional Oversight Panel said that the government’s rescue fund may have prevented an economic depression by sending billions of dollars to companies crippled in financial crisis that erupted in 2008. But little has been done to aid to homeowners facing foreclosure or others far from Wall Street, it said. “The good news is that America did not suffer another depression,” panel Chairman Ted Kaufman said. However, Treasury’s “programs for Main Street have been far less effective” than the cash injections that stabilized Wall Street banks during the worst financial crisis in genera-
tions, he said. It was the panel’s last report before it disbands next month. The bailout law gave the panel six months to keep working after Treasury lost the power to create new programs. Treasury’s authority expired Oct. 3. The report mostly summarizes the panel’s earlier findings about the bailouts, known as the Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP. Among them: n The program reinforced the belief that large and interconnected companies will enjoy government support in times of crisis. That could encourage them to take unwise risks, eventually leading to another crisis and more bailouts. n By failing to be transparent about bailout decisions and goals, the government fueled the public’s anger about the bailouts. That could tie politicians’ hands as they seek to respond to future crises.
n TARP cost less than expected, but part of the savings came from failed foreclosure-prevention programs that spent a fraction of what Treasury set aside. n Much of the credit for stabilizing the financial system goes to other, lesstransparent programs run by the Federal Reserve and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.
Profits of $37 billion Treasury’s top official on the issue told reporters that the economic recovery is proof that the bailouts worked. “Where we are today shows that the program, by any reasonable, objective measure, was a success,” Acting Assistant Secretary for Financial Stability Timothy Massad said. Of the $411 billion that Treasury handed out from the bailout fund, $150 billion remains in private hands. Treasury also has reported profits of $37 billion from fees, dividends
and other deal-sweeteners it received from bailed-out companies. However, the government might have faced massive losses if the financial system suffered another shock while the government was guaranteeing as much as $4.4 trillion in financial assets, the report says. TARP remains under the oversight of a special inspector general with a law-enforcement mandate, and is audited by the Government Accountability Office. The panel’s report concluded by noting that TARP was “one of the most thoroughly scrutinized government programs in U.S. history.” It said Treasury’s management of the bailouts improved over time because of that scrutiny. “An enduring lesson of the TARP is that extraordinary government programs can benefit from, and indeed may require, extraordinary oversight,” it said.
$ Briefly . . . McKay urges legalization of marijuana OLYMPIA — A former U.S. attorney from Seattle said marijuana should be decriminalized and regulated to end the unnecessary violence spawned by the drug trade in the U.S. and Mexico. John McKay was part of a panel of officials invited by state Rep. Mary Lou Dickerson, D-Seattle, to speak in favor of a marijuana legalization bill Wednesday. The event was aimed at drumming up support for Dickerson’s bill, which has stalled in the Legislature. The measure would have the state Liquor Control board sell and regulate cannabis. Backers say it could raise $440 million in tax revenue per biennium — much-needed money in the face of a $5 billion deficit in the next twoyear state budget. Dickerson wants to build momentum ahead of today’s revenue forecast, which many predict will show the deficit to be even bigger than previously thought. McKay directed federal prosecutions in Western Washington from 2001 to 2006, when the Bush administration fired him. “Prohibition has failed, and frankly has failed for over 80 years,” McKay said. “That means we have to have a different approach to the fact that 14 million Americans choose to smoke marijuana in the face of federal prison.”
Gaming machines OLYMPIA — A study by the Recreational Gambling Association released Wednesday estimates that Washington could gain up to $380 million per biennium in taxes by allowing “scratch-ticket” machines at nontribal casinos. Under current state law, electronic gaming machines only are permitted at tribal casinos. The association said expanding the availability of what it calls electronic scratch machines could raise more than $150 million next year if the machines are installed at established banked card rooms around the state. The group’s proposal includes installing 125 machines at each of 63 established card rooms and a 30 percent privilege tax on all winnings, to be collected by the state. Some lawmakers in Olympia have expressed interest in pursuing this option as a way to bring in revenue to the state’s cash-strapped budget.

graduate would pay more for tuition under a bill being considered by the state Legislature. Senate Bill 5868 would require students with a bachelor’s degree who attend a community or technical college to pay the entire cost of instruction, including the amount the state pays. Undergraduate students who earn more than 125 percent of the number of credits they need for a bachelor’s degree at a state university or fouryear college also would pay the higher tuition. Students in job-training programs and those completing their teacher certification wouldn’t have to pay extra. And others could petition to avoid paying the higher tuition. Credits earned through high school Advanced Placement programs also wouldn’t count.

PAHS play spotlights fictional character By Diane Urbani
Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Don’t dismiss your dream, no matter how the world scoffs. That’s the message of “The Other Shakespeare,” a stage play opening tonight and running through Sunday at the Port Angeles High School auditorium, 304 E. Park Ave. Curtain times for the production, which imagines a gifted sister to the renowned playwright, are 7:30 p.m. today through Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $7 for adults, $6 for students and free for children younger than 10. This is the story — told by playwright Laura Annawyn Shamas — of William Shakespeare’s sister, Cassandra, a poet in her own right who never had the chance to see her works on stage. Her contemporaries, after all, included brother Bill as well as writers John Webster and Christopher Marlowe; Cassie’s era just wasn’t conducive to female wordsmiths. In the play, she writes sonnets just the same, confiding in her brother as she navigates the strict confines around women of the 16th century. Cassandra, or Cassie as she’s called in the play, is the one “Other Shakespeare” character who doesn’t appear in actual history. Everybody else, including the Shakespeares’ parents and the aforementioned rival writers, comes from real life.
Ideal for teens And her story, said Port Angeles High School drama coach Kelly Lovall, is an ideal one to be told by teenagers. Fourteen of them comprise “The Other Shakespeare’s” cast: Port Angeles High junior Bethany Bond portrays Cassie, and sophomores Hope Chamberlain and Lucy Bert play William Shakespeare and Marlowe, respectively. Lovall is directing “The Other Shakespeare” as a kind of pre-
cursor for the school’s production of Shakespeare’s “As You Like It” in the fall. “I chose this play first because I thought it would be interesting to explore the Renaissance period from the women’s perspective before moving into a world as seen through a man’s eye,” she said. Her students agreed and have dived headlong into the production, which is replete with period costumes and Tudor-style murals. The story, though, is told in contemporary language; Shamas wrote the play during the 1980s.
Women not allowed During Shakespeare’s time, “women were not allowed on the stage,” Lovall added, “and though there were some female writers during the period, there were no records of them writing for the stage — at least not any that I’ve been able to find in my research. “We can only conjecture that if women did write for the stage during the 1500s, it was either under a pseudonym, or they were not taken seriously and their works were dismissed.” “The Other Shakespeare” explores how Shakespeare’s sister would have contended with such notions. This scenario, Lovall noted, was first asserted by Virginia Woolf in her famed essay of 1928, “A Room of One’s Own.” “Let me imagine, since the facts are so hard to come by, what would have happened had Shakespeare had a wonderfully gifted sister,” Woolf wrote. Lovall believes this play will both entertain and intrigue audiences with its mix of history, ideas and accessible language. “There are a lot of fun antics that add humor throughout,” she said, adding that the young actors are reveling in their Renaissance-style outfits. Filling out the cast are sophomore Jill Nickles as Nick Green, sophomore Robert Stephens as Richard Burbage and senior Megan Reader, junior Marissa Wilson and sophomores Kelsey Williams and Lucy Bert as John,
Mary, Joan and Gilbert Shakespeare. Former Port Angeles High Thespian Society members Amanda Bond and Jill Lidback and freshmen Nicholas Lippert and Megan Mundy play tavern patrons. The 90-minute show is for people of all ages, Lovall said, though younger children might not catch all of the literary references. Proceeds benefit the school Thespian Society, and refreshments will be available in the auditorium lobby during the 15-minute intermission. “This show is about the creative spirit,” Lovall said. “It incites that feeling of ‘follow your heart.’”

Everything to know about Medicare I TEND TO think of Medicare as the “Rube Goldberg approach to health insurance;” thus, it’s easy to get myopically focused on this or that moving part or how this made that fall over, which made this other one stand up, which caused this one over here to roll over and play dead. And, in the course of that, completely lose track of what the whole machine looks like and what we actually have to do in order to inject ourselves into the “The Machine” because, like it or not, for many of us, it’s the only game in town. This is not “Hooray for Medicare!” We are not required to like it nor to think it represents a stunningly insightful or logical method of health care (or health insurance) delivery, but many, many, many of us are required to deal with it. Here’s another nonsurprise: The “Baby Boomers” (“Silver Tsunami,” whatever) are bumping up against the Medicare machine. These folks were born between 1946 and 1964. There are 47 million people on Medicare now, and with the boomers, that will spike to 80 million by 2030, which is only 19 years away; further, one in 10 boomers are living

During the war, he served on the aircraft carrier USS Saratoga and was aboard when it was attacked off the island of Iwo Jima in Febru-
“right,” you have an “open enrollment period” for Medigap plans, which means that any plan has to accept you, regardless of pre-existing conditions or whatever else, whether they like it or not. Otherwise, they can make you fill out a health questionnaire that was developed during The Inquisition and then, in all probability, reject you. You do not want that to happen. So: If, when you turn 65, you still are working (or your spouse still is working) for an employer with at least 20 or more fulltime employees (I don’t know why and am well past caring) and you (or he or she) have health insurance through that employer, you can legitimately delay enrolling in Part B without incurring the dreaded penalty and will still have access to that lovely “open enrollment period” for Medigaps down the way. If all that is true and if you have the nerve to change to a different job where all of that is still true, get a letter from the employer that you’re leaving that states the length of time you were enrolled in that employer’s health insurance. You want this
Security benefits, you have to sign up for Medicare. You sign up for Medicare by contacting Social Security — I know, but that’s how it’s done. You can also do that “online,” but let’s not get distracted by practicality. If you are still working and get health insurance through your employer, you might choose to delay enrolling in Part B. Why? Well, for openers, Part B costs you money, so why pay for something you don’t need? Yet. However, there is a pricey, lifelong penalty for not enrolling in Part B when you’re eligible, so you want to get this right (stay with me); also, “getting it right” will allow you to retain your “open enrollment period” for a Medigap plan. I know. Don’t panic. As shocking as it might be, Medicare does not pay for all of your health insurance stuff; actually, it only pays 80 percent of the Medicare-approved cost of the stuff it does cover. Many people buy private plans from insurance companies to pay for all or most of what Medicare doesn’t pay for. These are affectionately referred to as “Medigap” (aka “MedSUPP”) plans.

Fun ’n’ Advice
Peninsula Daily News
Old-fashioned dad frustrates teen
DEAR ABBY: I am a 17-year-old senior in high school. My boyfriend, “Kenny,” is 18 and goes to college five hours away. I’d like to visit him over the weekend sometimes, but I need my parents’ permission. Mom is OK with it, as long as I take the train (she doesn’t want me driving that distance alone), and I pay for it. Dad is old-fashioned. He dislikes the fact that Kenny and I would be unsupervised in his dorm for a whole weekend, even though Kenny has a roommate. We’ve been together for a long time and have been unsupervised before, but Dad’s still uneasy. He treats me like I’m younger than my age. I’m almost 18 and have traveled alone by plane. I’m respectful to my parents and feel I deserve Dad’s trust. Kenny and I love each other, but having a long-distance relationship is difficult since we hardly get to see each other. Dad likes and approves of Kenny but thinks it’s “unnecessary” for me to visit him since we call, Skype and text each other often. How can I get my father to see my point of view? Grown-Up Girl in Northern California
For Better or For Worse
Frank & Ernest
Dear Grown-Up Girl: You probably can’t — but your mother might be able to, which is why you should enlist her help in talking to your father for you. However, if that doesn’t work, the alternative would be for Kenny to travel to visit you when he’s able to get away for a weekend. Dear Abby: My husband, “Dan,” and I have been married for a year, but we dated for six years. He has been pressuring me to get pregnant. I’m not ready to be a mom. I work and go to school. Every time we talk about having a baby, Dan becomes irate and yells that he’ll divorce me for being selfish. I can never get my point across when I talk to him. I considered getting pregnant so he will shut up and leave me alone.
I am so unhappy. He Van Buren always puts his needs before mine. I realize that married couples make sacrifices, but Dan isn’t willing to. We have issues to work on, but he has made it clear that he isn’t going to change. It’s his way or the highway. I still love Dan and would hate to fail as a wife, but what can I do? I knew Dan could be controlling, but I thought things would be better after we were married. I just turned 26, and I’m learning more about life. I can see that this was never a healthy relationship. But I have invested seven years of my life with this man. Please help! Standing Around in Newark, N.J.
Dear Standing Around: Staying married to someone because you have invested seven years is a poor reason to stay married. Seven more years and a baby (or more) will not improve your husband’s controlling nature. If you think “my way or the highway” seems difficult now, imagine yourself on the highway with a child or two in tow. You have serious decisions to make about your future. I agree that the relationship you have described is not healthy. How much more time do you plan to invest? Unless your husband realizes he needs help, he won’t change. Please talk to a licensed counselor. You need more help than anyone can offer in an advice column. To My Irish Readers: A very happy St. Patrick’s Day to you all. Love, Abby Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Letters can be mailed to Dear Abby, P.O.

The Last Word in Astrology By Eugenia Last
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t let uncertainty stand in the way. Make decisions that will help get you back on track financially. When you let your emotions stand in your way, you lose sight of the possibilities. 5 stars TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Keep your thoughts to yourself and your plans undercover. The less people know about what you are up to, the easier it will be to get things done. Only when you have reached your goals should you share your accomplishments. 2 stars
Rose is Rose
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You can build good friendships if you get involved in an event that combines socializing within the industry where you work. Someone you have worked with in the past can help you advance now. Romance can lead to a serious commitment. 4 stars
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Rely on friends and family to give you a helping hand professionally and personally. Combining what you do well or enjoy doing with a service that is in demand will help you gain financial ground and stabilize your future. 3 stars
Dennis the Menace
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t be tricked into spending on something you shouldn’t. Partnering with someone who can contribute equally will enable you to do more for less. Cut costs and you will find a way to increase your income and lower your stress. 3 stars
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Put your best foot forward when it comes to home and family. The changes you make will add to your comfort and will bring your family closer together. Plan your next vacation or sign up for an interest course. 5 stars
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t be afraid to use a little pressure when dealing with friends, lovers or children if it will help get your point across. Keeping home improvement projects under budget will contribute to your emotional wellbeing. 3 stars
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): If you stray too far from home or engage in events or activities that involve unfamiliar places or people, you will face a negative response that can lead to unexpected alterations in your plans. Added responsibilities will set you back. 3 stars
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You can expect someone to use emotional blackmail if you are not willing to give into the demands being made. Distance yourself to avoid an unsavory situation. Concentrate on projects that can help you get ahead personally and professionally. 3 stars SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Hooking up with someone who’s equally creative will lead to an interesting partnership that can turn into a viable sideline business. It’s time to gather up all you have learned and experienced into a serviceable, lucrative package. 4 stars
The Family Circus

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Spend more time with the people you enjoy most. An old friend will surprise you. A job offer is apparent, so apply for a position or set up an interview with a placement company. 3 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You have to be honest with yourself about your past and present situation if you are going to make positive changes in the future. Don’t put the blame on others. It’s time to do a little soul-searching so you can move forward without unwanted baggage. 3 stars

Pickup truck has clunking sound in steering column Dear Doctor: I own a 2003 GMC Sierra 1500 pickup and now have a clunking sound in the steering column. A mechanic said the sound is where the column goes into the gearbox. There was a recall, but I never got notification. I understand that even some of the vehicles repaired under the recall still have the problem. Do you have the solution? Robert Dear Robert: An ongoing problem on this model-year truck has been the lower steering shaft failure. GM had a grease repacking kit for a while and now an updated lower steering shaft. I have replaced a number of these steering shafts over the years. As for any recalls, check the dealer service department with your VIN number. I can say that your vehicle will feel like new once the shaft is replaced.
Roughness at idle speeds Dear Doctor: My 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis was in a flash flood, and a wave of water passed over the hood. After riding a short distance, two blocks, my engine started to knock. I was 10 blocks from home, so I drove home and put the car in the driveway. My mechanic came over and

THE AUTO DOC towed the car to his shop. Damato After checking it out, he found a piston was bent, and he replaced it. Ever since, the car runs as though the engine is missing when it’s idling at traffic lights. If I put the engine in neutral, the roughness stops. Hope you can help. I love the car! Ray Dear Ray: The roughness at idle speed indicates the engine is not firing completely on all cylinders. A weak cylinder vacuum leak or other worn component can cause a rough idle. Have the technician perform a cylinder balance test. Using a professional scan tool (in mode 6), the technician should be able to look deep into the computer for information. A weak sealing valve also will cause a rough idle.

thumping noise coming from the suspension or drive chain. It is perplexing because it only happens when the vehicle is warm. During the recent subfreezing temperatures, I could drive all day without hearing the loud thumping. Once the temperature is above 40 degrees, it thumps. The dealer replaced the rear hubs, but that didn’t resolve the problem. I also was told it was road noise that I was hearing. It is clearly not road noise. Do you have any ideas that I might suggest to my mechanic? Jonathan Dear Jonathan: If I were servicing your truck, I would first want to know whether the thumping happens when your foot is on the brake, gas or just coasting. Does the thump sound get slower or faster with speed? Take the vehicle to an independent shop or to a technician who can take the time to find the source of the problem.
