County transit takes survey of merchants Official trying to determine workers’ ridership patterns
“Dump the Pump Day,” a campaign to encourage people to take public transportation.
BY CHARLIE BERMANT
During the national public awareness day, which is in partnership with the Sierra Club and the Natural Resources Defense Council, APTA says riding public transit saves money, particularly when gas prices are high. The group’s latest report shows that a two-person household that downsizes to one car can save an average of $9,700 a year.

Investigation: Official falsified county records BY PAUL GOTTLIEB PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — Clallam County Department of Community Development Director Sheila Roark Miller altered, destroyed or backdated documents that led to the falsification of public records related to at least two permits issued by the agency, an investigator hired by the county’s Human Resources Department has concluded. Portland, Ore., attorney Akin Blitz on Wednesday sent investigator Ken Bauman’s report on the investigation to assistant state Attorney General Scott Marlow for possible prosecution of Roark Miller, the only elected DCD director in the nation, Blitz said. Blitz said he would not release Bauman’s report. The Peninsula Roark Miller Daily News obtained a copy of the report’s cover letter dated Wednesday. Blitz said in the letter that Bauman — who “was careful not to make an ultimate decision, which he states is reserved for the proper prosecutorial authority” — identified seven charges that the state Attorney General’s Office could consider against Roark Miller.

French bocce, anyone? Petanque is attracting new crowd of followers in PT
Potential charges The potential charges are injury to a public record, injury to and misappropriation of a record, offering a false instrument for filing or record and misappropriation and falsification of accounts by a public officer, all felonies; and official misconduct, false report and public officer making false certificates, a gross misdemeanor. “The investigative report stems from initial allegations that required an investigative review of Clallam County Department of Community Development management and employee morale,” Blitz wrote. The investigation began with a Feb. 21 whistleblower allegation by a DCD employee that alleged Roark Miller asked an employee to work on a Sunday by inspecting a job site where she had an active building permit and not record the overtime. The complaint alleged that Miller “seems to be utilizing her power in order to get special privileges that are not granted to the public.” TURN

PORT TOWNSEND — A French game that has elements of horseshoes, bocce ball, bowling and croquet has become a popular pastime at a Port Townsend tavern, which will host a tournament Sunday. On any given day, several people can be found playing petanque behind the Pourhouse, 2231 Washington St., in the gravel area between the building and the beach. “This is a great game that you can enjoy with different skill levels,” said Angelica Garcia, a freelance designer. “It looks simple, but it is not and is a good game to play while drinking beer.”
“It’s a real easy game to learn, but the more you play, the more complicated it gets.” BLAIR FRANCIS regular petanque player While casual players can be found at the Pourhouse on most sunny days in the late afternoon, the seriousness is kicked up a notch during the Low Tide Tournament. The next tournament will begin at 10 a.m. Sunday at Decatur Street Beach behind the Pourhouse. It will move to the regular court when the tide rises. A $5 donation is suggested from all players. All proceeds will go to the Jef-
ferson County Food Bank. The winner will get bragging rights, his or her name on a trophy and a “hunnerd dollar gift certificate,” according to the event’s flier. The second-place winner will get a $20 gift certificate, while third and fourth places will get “Pourhouse Consolation Beverages.”
How to play A game of petanque — pronounced pay-tonk — begins with the throwing of a “jack,” a small wooden sphere the size of a pingpong ball, toward one end of a gravel court. Then, players toss metal balls known as “boules.” TURN

Passings By The Associated Press
MICHAEL HASTINGS, 33, an award-winning freelance reporter who died Tuesday, was known for an intrepid, gonzo-style journalism that took him to war zones in Afghanistan and Iraq, and famously brought down an Army general. His death, in a car crash in Los Angeles at about 4:30 a.m., was confirmed by his wife, Elise Jordan. Mr. Hastings Mr. Hastings was believed to have been the sole occupant of the car, which struck a tree at high speed, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office. He lived in New York City. In 2010, Mr. Hastings won a George Polk Award, presented annually by Long Island University for reporting in the public interest. The award honored his Rolling Stone cover story, “The Runaway General,” published that June. In it, Mr. Hastings profiled Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal, then the top commander of United States forces in Afghanistan. The article quoted the general and members of his staff making disparaging comments about members of the Obama administration, including Vice President Joseph R. Biden, with respect to their handling of the Afghan campaign. Within days of its publication, President Barack Obama met briefly with McChrystal in the Oval Office before firing him, ending his 34-year military career.
_________ RABBI MOSHE GREENBERG, 84, a reli-
gious educator who survived a brutal Gulag in Siberia and secretly taught Judaism under an oppressive Soviet regime, has died in Israel. The Hasidic Chabad Lubavitch movement in which Rabbi Greenberg was a member said he died Tuesday. Rabbi Greenberg was born to a Hassidic family in Moldavia at a time when Jews were oppressed and Jewish practices were forbidden by the Soviets, Chabad said Thursday. At the age of 14, Rabbi Greenberg went to Tashkent in Uzbekistan to study Judaism at a secret Chabad seminary. While there, he became part of the “Chabad underground,” a network that worked to maintain and teach Jewish traditions, which the Soviet’s had outlawed, said Menahem Brod, spokesman of Chabad in Israel. The Soviets banned the practice of Jewish rituals and the teaching of Judaism and those caught doing so were severely punished, Brod said. Rabbi Greenberg was caught trying to escape the Soviet Union at the end of World War II and was banished to a Siberian forced labor camp for seven years. Chabad said he kept and taught Jewish traditions in the Gulag, the infamous Soviet prison system, despite the danger.
__________ KIM THOMPSON, 56, co-publisher of the influential Seattle-based publisher Fantagraphics Books known for celebrated alternative comics, graphic novels and comic strip anthologies, has died. Fantagraphics

Taliban offers to free soldier held since ’09 Guantanamo prisoners are part of deal THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
KABUL, Afghanistan — The Taliban offered to free a U.S. soldier held captive since 2009 in exchange for five prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, while Afghan President Hamid Karzai eased his opposition Thursday to joining planned peace talks. Karzai spokesman Fayeq Wahidi said the Afghan president is willing to join peace talks with the Taliban if the U.S. follows through with promises he said that Secretary of State John Kerry made over the phone. The idea of releasing some of the Taliban’s most senior operatives has been controversial over fears they would simply return to the battlefield. The proposal to trade Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for the Taliban detainees was made by Taliban spokesman Shaheen Suhail in response to a question in an exclusive phone interview with The Associated Press from his new political office in Doha, Qatar.
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
An image of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl of Hailey, Idaho, is worn by an attendee at the annual Rolling Thunder rally for POW/MIA awareness May 27, 2012, in Washington, D.C. The prisoner exchange is the first item on the Taliban’s agenda before even opening peace talks with the U.S., said Suhai. “First has to be the release of detainees,” Suhail said Thursday when asked about Bergdahl.
‘Would be an exchange’ “Yes. It would be an exchange. Then step by step, we want to build bridges of confidence.” Bergdahl, 27, of Hailey, Idaho, is the only known American sol-
dier held captive from the Afghan war. He disappeared from his base June 30, 2009, and is believed to be held in Pakistan. Suhail said Bergdahl “is, as far as I know, in good condition.” Col. Tim Marsano with the Idaho National Guard said Bergdahl’s parents, Bob and Jani Bergdahl, plan to speak at an event in Hailey on Saturday. “They’re aware that the possibility of a transfer or exchange is on the table, and they’re encouraged by it,” Marsano said.

3-D brain atlas reveals tiny details THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK — Scientists have a new brain atlas to help them study their favorite organ. It’s a digital, three-dimensional model called “BigBrain.” Its resolution is finer than a human hair, so it can reveal clusters of brain cells and even some large individual cells. It is being made available to scientists around the world. To make the atlas, researchers sliced a cadaver brain from a 65-year-old woman into 7,400
thin sections, stained them to reveal tiny features and photographed each one. Then they used computers to combine the data into a 3-D digital model.
Not a new idea The idea of thin-slicing a brain to study its anatomy is not new. In fact, complete bodies of a man and a woman were sliced and photographed about 20 years ago to create an anatomy reference called the Visible Human Project.
For the new brain-mapping project, the researchers chose the woman’s brain for no special reason other than it was basically healthy, said Katrin Amunts of Heinrich Heine University Duesseldorf in Germany. She is lead author of a report published Thursday in Science. Scientists have begun mapping data from other studies onto the new model to gain new insights, said Karl Zilles of the Juelich Aachen Research Alliance in Juelich, Germany.

World: Baby with 4 legs has surgery in South Africa
THE JUDGE IN the Jodi Arias murder trial has delayed a decision on the next step for the high-profile case. The case returned to court in Phoenix on Thursday for the first time since a mistrial was declared last month in the penalty phase of the trial. Defense lawyers earlier asked the judge to resume the case in January, while prosecutors said it should occur this summer. Judge Sherry Stephens did not rule Thursday and set another hearing for July 18. Arias, 32, was in the courtroom — shackled and surrounded by guards the entire time.
A MAN PARALYZED and hooked up to a ventilator after he was shot in the face and neck could only communicate by blinking his eyes, but those blinks helped lead to what could end up as life in prison for the man convicted of murdering him. Ricardo Woods, 35, was sentenced Thursday to 36 years to life in prison for the murder of David Chandler, felonious assaults and weapons charges. The murder trial drew national attention when the judge allowed jurors to see a police interview of Chandler two weeks before his death during which he blinked in response to questions about who shot him.
AN 89-YEAR-OLD HEIR has been denied a new trial on charges of looting his mother’s fortune, and he may have to go to a New York prison as soon as Friday. A Manhattan judge turned down Anthony Marshall’s request Thursday. Marshall’s mother, Brooke Astor, was a philanthropist and society doyenne. Marshall was convicted in 2009 of plundering her fortune by exploiting her mental decline. He still denies the allegations. An appeals court had agreed to postpone Marshall’s surrender until today while it considers his argument that he’s too sick for prison.
A GOVERNMENT SPOKESWOMAN said a 2-month-old Namibian boy born with four legs is responding well to treatment after undergoing surgery at a South African hospital. Ester Paulus with Namibia’s Ministry of Health and Social Services said Thursday that doctors at the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital in Cape Town performed a ninehour operation to remove two legs. The baby, Andrew Palismwe, is now recovering at the Central State Hospital in Namibia’s capital. That country’s government paid for the surgery through a fund that aids patients with no access to private medical care.

Enrollment stabilizes in PA schools PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles School District may be in better financial shape than officials had feared as the school district’s 2012-2013 fiscal year comes to a close. Because of an unexpected stabilization in enrollment at the district schools, which had been steadily declining for a decade, there is a chance the district will not need to eat as far into its savings as predicted earlier this year, Superintendent Jane Pryne told the Port Angeles School board. A $275,000 shortfall was predicted for the 2012-2013 school year, which the district planned to take out of its reserves. In the district’s final student count, made June 3, it showed that the district had 28 more students than were expected in 2012.

From May 20-24, the chain gang cleared 160 pounds of litter off 14.4 miles of Port Williams and Joyce-Piedmont roads, and along U.S. Highway 101 and state Highway 112.

Rotary bulb sale deadline on Monday PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” The deadline is Monday for ordering imported flower bulbs in the fundraiser conducted by the Port Angeles Rotary Club. The preorder deadline ensures the Holland-grown bulbs are here for pickup during the clubâ€™s three-day bulb sale in September, said Terry Gallagher, club president.
Variety offered Offered are tulips, iris, crocus, hyacinth, daffodils and others in a variety of colors and specialties. A catalog, including photos, as well as the order form can be found online at http://tinyurl.com/rotarybulbs.
Port Angeles Rotary is noted for its springtime â€œwelcome gardenâ€? featuring tulips and daffodils that line either side of U.S. Highway 101 at its eastern entrance to the city. The club first planted the areas along the highway in 2000. Sales of the imported bulbs support the clubâ€™s community service projects and philanthropy, including student scholarships, restoration and improvement to the former Loomis log cabin in Lincoln Park, hosting foreign exchange students and more. Questions about the bulb sale can be phoned to 360-477-2162 or 360-4524169.

he has been doing it for years. Ramos might one day have a job just like it if the introduction by the Quileute Natural Resources and the North Olympic Peninsula Skills Center Natural Resources program creates an interest in pursuing education needed for natural resources work. The skills center offers project-based field science classes and work on realworld projects in local ecosystems. The Quileute tribe provides the jobs for the two tribal students to shadow as well as do project work. â€œThe ideal pathway is that the next step is an internship that provides paid education awards through AmeriCorps, followed by college or a job,â€? said Dan Lieberman, the coordinating teacher for the skills centerâ€™s natural resources program, headquartered in Port Angeles. The students spend half a day a week, outside of regular class hours, working with the tribe and the skills center program. Ramos and Jonah Black work on water-quality and

For students like Ramos, the work provides an opportunity to design their own scientific questions and methods to answer them on the job. He has been measuring the salinity levels of various spots in the Quillayute River system and making predictions based on the results. â€œItâ€™s interesting. When I was little, I would always see people on the river doing experiments, so I asked them what they were doing. They told me they didnâ€™t like sitting in the office much and that their job allowed them to be outside a lot,â€? Ramos said. â€œThat sounded like a good idea to me, too.â€?

Briefly: State Gun-rights groups offer initiative SEATTLE â€” Facing a multimillion-dollar initiative campaign to expand background checks for gun sales, Second Amendment activists are responding with their own ballot measure. A coalition of gun-rights groups Wednesday unveiled Initiative 591, which would prevent Washington state from adopting background-check laws more restrictive than the federal standard. The initiative also would prohibit any confiscation of firearms without
due process. If supporters get some 246,000 valid signatures, the proposal would become an initiative to the Legislature in 2014 and could end up on the November 2014 ballot â€” just like a probackground-check measure.

Transit: PT CONTINUED FROM A1
KEITH THORPE/PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Irene Peters, 14, gets pushed up Front Street in downtown Port Angeles in a shopping cart by Anika Stephan, 16, on Thursday. The Port Angeles girls said they found the unmarked stray cart and decided a stroll around the downtown area was in order.
The timing of the Jefferson Transit effort with Dump the Pump Day was coincidental, Monroe said. Monroe has about 50 businesses she wishes to contact and expects it will take several days to work through the list. She asks each business owner how many employees ride the bus and how often, and what is stopping people from becoming regular riders. After the survey, she gives the business owners two complimentary bus passes. Quimper Mercantile was the first business Monroe visited Thursday, where assistant manager Holly Mayshark said few of her employees are bus riders. “One of our guys used to ride all the time, but he stopped when his schedule changed,” Mayshark said. “We have two shifts a day, and their start times don’t correspond with the bus schedule and doesn’t match where the bus picks up according to where they live.” Mayshark told Monroe that the shuttle schedule between the Park and Ride on Landes Street and downtown has been “problematic” in connecting to the shift schedule. Aside from modifying the schedule, Mayshark suggested that the transit system supply downtown merchants with printed schedules so they can inform their customers when the next bus is scheduled to arrive. Monroe said the data assembled from the survey will be used to improve service and modify schedules. For more information about Jefferson Transit, visit www.jeffersontransit.com.

County Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Brian Wendt said all names in complaints that allege “improper government actions,” and the identities of those against whom the complaints are made, were blacked out as required by law to protect their right to privacy.

A8 Olympic National Park turns 75 years old
A planetary legacy BY TIM MCNULTY
POINT OF VIEW
LMOST 75 YEARS AGO, ON June 29, 1938, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the bill creating Olympic National Park. With this act Americans embarked on something new in land conservation: They created a wilderness preserve large enough to protect intact old-growth forest communities and the forest-dependent wildlife they contained. McNulty Olympic National Park set a new standard for ecosystem conservation in America, and it marked a turning point in wildland protection. By the mid-1930s, the contentious argument over the creation of Olympic National Park had reached a stalemate. National conservation groups proposed a large park that included some of the Peninsula’s magnificent, temperate oldgrowth forests. Government agencies and local business interests supported a smaller park devoid of any commercial-grade forests or potential mineral lands. A half-dozen park bills had been introduced over the years. But the U.S. Forest Service held doggedly to its management of the Olympic forests, and the National Park Service seemed content to manage the small Mount Olympus National Monument in the heart of the range. Nationally, it was a different story.
N THE LIGHT OF RAMPANT forest destruction in the Appalachians and throughout the upper Midwest, pressure mounted to preserve some of the last lowland virgin forests in the Northwest.
Coming Sunday WANT TO KNOW more about Olympic National Park on its Diamond Anniversary? A special section celebrating the park and its creation June 29, 1938, will be part of the Peninsula Daily News this Sunday.
Willard Van Name of the American Museum of Natural History framed the issue powerfully: “The Peninsula affords the last opportunity for preserving any adequate large remnants of the wonderful primeval forests . . . which everywhere have been or are being logged off to the very stick.” National and statewide advocates pressed fervently for a large park. Their goal was to preserve much of the remaining temperate rain-forest valleys of the Olympics and the winter habitat they provided for Roosevelt elk (named for an earlier president) and a wealth of related wildlife. Wisely, they took their cause directly to President Roosevelt. In September 1937, FDR decided to visit the Olympic Peninsula, view the proposed park and if possible break the logjam. At a stop attended by thousands in front of the courthouse in Port Angeles, he promised the crowd: “You can count on my help in getting that national park, not only because we need it . . . but for a whole lot of young people who are going to come along in the next hundred years of America.” That evening at his cabin at Singer’s Tavern (now Lake Crescent Lodge), FDR told a small gathering of Park Service and Forest Service executives, congressmen and senators: “You are not allowing a large enough national park. I am thinking 50 years ahead.” He gave voice to the national consensus that the remaining original forest is “much more valuable for its recreational use than for lumber.” When Roosevelt signed the bill creatiing Olympic National Park the following y year, it was a major victory for conservattionists. The act authorized FDR to add significcant lowland valley forests in the B Bogachiel, Hoh, Queets and Quinault vallleys to the new park. The bill also contained, at the presid dent’s insistence, provisions to add the sspectacular wilderness coast and the Queets River corridor. To development interests who still hoped to see the new park “improved” with additional roads, lodges, resorts, and chalets, FDR’s secretary of the interior, Harold Ickes, reaffirmed Congress’ intent:
Peninsula Voices Is new City Hall in Sequim necessary? Can we fix the potholed city streets, house the mentally ill or build a miniature golf course for Sequim instead of building a $15 million City Hall? Think of the positive ramifications: relief for our battered automobile suspension systems and damaged tires, or [shelter for] the homeless or recreation for our teens. Instead of draining the community by creating a bond for us to pay off with our property taxes with this self-serving idea, how about real service for the quality of our community? It seems the Sequim City Council is following the lead of our present [presidential] administration: Let’s build a monument to ourselves on the backs of our citizens. There are much better uses for the taxes we pay.
Those in charge of its distribution have a skewed and selfish sense of budgeting. Unfortunately, we have grown a culture of welfareminded politicos who care not for “we the people.” This is part of a careerpolitician syndrome that has developed. Instead of serving the people and going home, it has turned into a travesty. Hopefully, King Solomon’s request of old, “give your servant a discerning heart to govern your people and to distinguish between right and wrong” (1 Kings 3:9) can still be adhered to today. It seems simple enough. Cecilia Eckerson, Sequim

I worked as an administrative assistant for the city of Sequim for 6½ years. Some of that time was spent in the “Little Red Building” (the first City Hall) and some was spent in the rental on Fifth Avenue. I am now a volunteer in Police Services and work in the rented police station. From this experience, I would like to make some observations: 1. City employees do not bond together as a team because they are spread all over the place. That causes gaps in communication of information, direction and policy. 2. Handling the intake of money is very inefficient: Time and personnel are needed to transport money and receipts to City Hall. If there were one building, there would be a central cashier, [which would make the process] more efficient. 3. It will serve the public

Anniversary events next week OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK not only is commemorating its creation at the pen of President Franklin D. Roosevelt 75 years ago this month, but it is also noting the 56th anniversary of a major component to its success, the Student Conservation Association. Olympic is the only national park in the nation to host SCA students every year since the first 34 youths went to work in June 1957. Park Superintendent Sarah Creachbaum, SCA founder Liz Putnam and SCA Northwest Vice President Jay Satz will keynote a brown-bag lunch Tuesday noon at the park’s visitor center on Mount Angeles Road, just south
of Park Avenue in Port Angeles. Then, on the anniversary of the date of FDR’s signature to enabling legislation, Creachbaum will hold a meet-andgreet session with the public on Saturday, June 29. The event will be held at Lake Crescent Lodge from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. The lodge, 15 miles west of Port Angeles off U.S. Highway 101, will show historical memorabilia and offer refreshments between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. But the best of the park — nature itself — is featured in the numerous nature walks and evening talks at locations throughout the million-acre park. In addition, admission is free into the park on the June 29 anniversary so everyone can partake.

Economically, you don’t rent a home if you can own it. So why is the city spending money on rent when we can own one facility? Our town is now a city. Its needs have outgrown the facilities now in place. Finally, the employees try very hard to provide great customer service, and in return they deserve a decent place to work. I feel it is essential to have a new City Hall. Lorri Gilchrist, Sequim

Of rats and Boston hit men From Boston IT ALL DEPENDS how you look at it, really. One man’s hit man is another’s humanitarian. Johnny “The Executioner” Martorano, who turned government witness and copped to killing 20 men and women as part of Whitey Bulger’s Winter Hill Maureen Gang, Dowd explained to Whitey’s lawyer Tuesday in federal court in Boston that he was motivated by love of family and friends. “I didn’t enjoy killing anybody,” he said. “I enjoyed helping a friend if I could.” If anybody insulted, implicated or roughed up his brother or a friend’s brother, if anybody looked at him funny while he was with a date, if anybody ratted on his fellow gang members, if anybody could eyewitness a crime committed by an “associate,” he grabbed a .38 or a knife, a fake beard, a walkie-talkie or a towel to keep the blood off his car, and sprang into action. And somebody usually ended up in a trunk somewhere, sometimes still groaning. “Family and friends come first,” said the bulldog-faced enforcer, looking natty with slicked back, suspiciously black hair, a dark suit, pink-tinted wire-rim glasses and a kerchief the color of fresh blood. “The priests and the nuns I grew up with taught me that. They always talked about Judas. A Judas is the worst person in the world.” The 72-year-old Cambridge native did not look at his former pal, the short, trim 83-year-old Bulger of South Boston, sitting military straight at the defense table, and Bulger’s ice-blue eyes did not turn toward him.
So many Judases, so little time. Whitey sees Martorano as a Judas for making a deal with the feds and testifying against the Irish gang boss, who’s pleading not guilty to involvement in 19 murders. Martorano sees Whitey as a Judas for his years as a snitch for John “Zip” Connolly, a Boston FBI agent who was a Judas to the FBI because he helped Whitey steer clear of trouble. (They were from the same ZIP code.) Whitey’s younger brother, William, who rose to be a political boss in Massachusetts, was a mentor to Connolly when he was a young man. Martorano testified on Monday that when he learned that Whitey and Stevie “The Rifleman” Flemmi were FBI informants, “it sort of broke my heart.” In a gravelly monotone, with utter aplomb, Martorano talked about those he had taken out with a shot to the temple or heart, between the eyes or in the back of the head — plus several who were hit by mistake, including a teenage boy and girl. In a sneering cross-examination Tuesday, Henry Brennan, a lawyer on Whitey’s defense team, referred to Martorano’s deal for a “so-called sentence” of 14 years (12 served) for 20 murders and asked the Executioner if he felt he was killing out of honor and integrity. “I thought both,” Martorano replied. Brennan sarcastically asked, “And that makes you a vigilante like Batman?” “I would rather be considered as a vigilante than a serial killer,” Martorano answered, adding: “A serial murderer kills for fun. They like it. I didn’t like doing any of it. I didn’t like risking my life either. I never had any joy, never had any joy at all.” He doesn’t consider himself a hit man either, even though the book he wrote with the Boston
Herald columnist Howie Carr, which has been sold to Hollywood, is called “Hitman.” “There was no talk about money for murder, ever,” he said primly. On the lam in Florida from charges of horse-race fixing and racketeering, he flew to Tulsa, Okla., in 1981 to kill a stranger, Roger Wheeler, the owner of World Jai Alai, as a favor to his friend John Callahan, who had been president of World Jai Alai and who was worried that Wheeler suspected him of skimming money from jai alai frontons. He shot Wheeler in his car at a country club after he came off the golf course, and Callahan rewarded the Executioner with $50,000 for the Winter Hill pot. But it was not a quid pro kill, Martorano explained with gangsta gall: “He gave me that money in appreciation for me risking my life for him so that he wouldn’t go to jail.” The following year, his old friends Whitey and Stevie wanted Martorano to kill his new friend Callahan and blame it on the Cubans in Miami; they were afraid Callahan, whom they considered a wannabe gangster, would fold and finger the gang for killing Wheeler. Martorano later said he “felt lousy” about having to “kill a guy who I had just killed a guy for.” It was so “distasteful,” he said, that he never murdered anyone else. “What was a gang?” asked the prosecutor. “A group of guys that got together and formed a gang,” Martorano replied. “For what purpose?” the prosecutor asked. “Illegal purposes,” the Executioner explained.

Uncovering the Bastion cover-up ALL IT TAKES is one crack for a stone wall to start crumbling. Nine months after the deadly 9/14 raid on Camp Bastion in Afghanistan, the families of two fallen Marines may finally get some answers. Real accountability, Michelle of course, is Malkin another story. A formal internal investigation into lax security at the base — a British-run NATO compound that adjoins our Marines’ Camp Leatherneck — is now under way. A few members of Congress are putting pressure on the administration for the truth. And a couple of mainstream reporters are digging deeper. More, please. And faster. Camp Bastion belongs in the bloody scandal lexicon with Benghazi and Fast and Furious. This trio of national security disasters under the Obama administration didn’t just involve run-of-the-mill corruption and cover-ups. It cost American lives. As I’ve been reporting in a series of columns and blog posts over the past year, the Taliban waged an intricately coordinated, brutal attack on Camp Bastion in Afghanistan last fall — three days after the deadly siege on our consulate in Libya and after months of prior security incidents and warnings. Fifteen jihadists disguised in stolen American combat fatigues penetrated the complex. They used rocket-propelled grenades, assault rifles and other weapons to wipe out nearly an entire squadron of Marine Har-
rier jets worth an estimated $200 million. Along with the most devastating loss of U.S. airpower since Vietnam, two heroic Marines — Lt. Col. Christopher Raible and Sgt. Bradley Atwell — were killed in the battle, and nearly a dozen others were injured. Military officials refused to release details of the fateful budget and strategy decisions that led to the attack. But Deborah Hatheway, aunt of Sgt. Atwell and the family’s spokesperson, and other Camp Bastion families learned on their own that their loved ones were left vulnerable to attack by military leaders who outsourced watchtower security on the base to soldiers from Tonga. The neglect of security at Bastion was widely known. Nick Francona, a former Marine Corps Ground Intelligence Officer with 3rd Battalion, 4th Marines, who served as a Scout Sniper Platoon Commander in Helmand Province in 2011, recounted on Foreign Policy magazine’s The Best Defense blog in April: “It was obvious to even a casual observer that many of the posts were unmanned and were comically left with a ‘green Ivan’ silhouette target as a halfhearted attempt at deterrence.” The families zeroed in on Maj. Gen. Charles “Mark” Gurganus, who recently returned to the U.S. after commanding coalition forces in Afghanistan, as the man responsible for shortchanging security at Bastion. Gurganus was the same one who ordered Marines to disarm — immediately after a failed jihadi attack on then Defense Secretary Leon Panetta last year — because he wanted them “to look just like our [unarmed] Afghan partners.” The Camp Bastion families are not the only ones scrutinizing
Gurganus’ decisions. A few weeks ago, Washington Post reporter Rajiv Chandrasekaran reported that the U.S. military has finally launched a formal probe into whether Gurganus and his subordinates bear responsibility for lax security at Bastion. A planned promotion for Gurganus has been put on hold. Chandrasekaran confirmed that watchtowers were indeed left to Tongans (notorious at the base for sleeping on the job). In addition, reports Chandrasekaran, “Security patrols of the perimeter, which were conducted by the Marines . . . had been scaled back substantially in the months leading up to the attack.” Simply blaming the Tongans, however, is not accountability. U.S. staff decisions “made it easier for the Taliban to reconnoiter the compound and then enter without resistance,” according to Chadrasekaran’s sources with direct knowledge of the incident. While U.S. Central Command investigates, there is now movement on Capitol Hill to help Camp Bastion families whose information requests have been stymied. Rep. Todd Rokita, R-Ind., has written Marine/CENTCOM leadership on behalf of the victims’ families. (Sgt. Atwell and his family are from Indiana.) Rokita told me in a statement this week: “This is about transparency and accountability. I want to make sure that Sgt. Atwell’s family, Lt. Col. Raible’s family and the American people get the full truth about the Camp Bastion attack.” It’s a start.

Events earlier this week This year’s fundraising campaign began last Friday, June 14, with a bake sale at Swain’s General Store. The sale netted $1,300 — a record for the club, coordinator Linda deBord said. Last Saturday, 21 women received free breast health exams at Olympic Medical Center’s MRI Digital Imaging Center. The need was so great for the service, which is for those who are underinsured or lack insurance, that names were taken for a possible free clinic later,
deBord said. Sunday’s second annual Dennis Wilcox Pooch Walk on the Waterfront Trail raised $1,020, deBord said. The pooch walk was sponsored by Randy’s Auto Sales and Strait-View Credit Union Twelve merchants have signed up for the Pink Up Window Contest, deBord said. On Wednesday night was Pink out the Pier, where booths on City Pier provided information on cancer detection and Operation Uplift, and T-shirts and cookies were sold. On Thursday night was the Pink Up Port Angeles “takeover” of the Chestnut Cottage for a fundraising all-you-can-eat spaghetti feed, with “celebrity” waiters competing for tips and the Top Waiter award. First Federal sponsored the event. Pink ribbons tied throughout town last weekend to announce the fundraiser will come down Sunday after volunteers meet at the Cornerhouse Restaurant, 101 E. Front St., for breakfast and a “depink” meeting at 9 a.m. The recipient of the fundraiser, Operation Uplift, provides education, information, support meetings, a 24-hour phone line, free clinics, prostheses and wigs for both women and men with all types of cancer.

Whale escapes Sound’s shallows THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
PURDY — A gray whale that appeared to be trapped for a time Wednesday in the shallow water of Burley Lagoon in south Puget Sound made its way into deeper water by Thursday, but it’s probably still in trouble, a whale expert said. “This is, at best, a straggler of the migration along the Pacific Coast,” said John Calambokidis of Cascadia Research in Olympia.
“Most of the healthy animals have migrated past or else are feeding on the outer coast. The whales we see in Puget Sound in June and July are usually in poor condition,” he told the Kitsap Sun. “In some of the photos that I saw, the whale looked pretty emaciated,” the biologist said, adding that a large patch of whale lice behind its blowhole might be covering some kind of injury. Whale lice are shrimplike
creatures that feed on skin lesions. The whale is about a year old and 20 to 25 feet long. Gray whales are rarely seen in south Puget Sound, about a 200-mile swim from the Pacific. The whale attracted crowds to the shore of Burley Lagoon near Purdy but later made it to Henderson Bay. Anyone who sees the whale is asked to phone Cascadia Research at 800747-7329.

Hidden Jefferson gems Tour showcases beautiful, bountiful gardens BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND — Seven Port Townsend “secret gardens” will be on display for the public Saturday. Organizers hope the tour will both delight visitors and maybe provide an example to new gardening masterpieces. The theme for the Secret Garden Tour is “beautiful and bountiful.” The tour will feature both the traditional “beautiful” ornamental gardens as well as “bountiful” gardens that produce fruits and vegetables for the table, said Diane Threlkeld, Master Gardener and co-chair of the Secret Garden Tour. Many of them provide unique, easy concepts that may provide inspiration for novice or amateur gardeners, Threlkeld said. “These are things they could go home and do,” she said. Threlkeld said this year’s gardens are not created by professional landscapers but are “really personal gardens” homeowners gradually developed on their own. “They have turned dirt into wonderful things,” she said.

Dorothy Hensey is among the residents of Titipu, a town where flirting is outlawed, in “The Mikado,” opening at the Dungeness Schoolhouse tonight.
‘The Mikado’ flirts its way onto stage BY DIANE URBANI DE LA PAZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Love in Titipu Those are a few roles, while this is the story: Nanki-Poo arrives in Titipu disguised as a peasant and looking for Yum-Yum. Trouble is, she’s already betrothed to Ko-Ko. Nanki-Poo has learned that his rival has been found guilty of flirting. Which means the death penalty. So it seems NankiPoo and Yum-Yum have a chance. TURN
SEQUIM — Summer’s here, and the time is right for a trip to Titipu. That’s the town where flirting is a crime. Of course, the people risk the punishment, and then comes love, perhaps marriage and plans for an execution. And with a premise like that, it could only be Gilbert and Sullivan’s “The Mikado,” the comic opera overtaking the Dungeness Schoolhouse for two weekends. It’s a summertime tradition for Readers Theatre Plus, maestro Dewey Ehling and the Peninsula Singers. (See related story, Page B2 today.) “The Mikado,” starring Trent Pomeroy as Nanki-
Poo, Susan Roe as his beloved Yum-Yum and Joel Yelland as Ko-Ko, Lord High Executioner of Titipu, opens at 7:30 p.m. tonight. Oh, and there’s John Silver as Pooh-Bah, Lord High Everything Else.

Peninsula benefits Dad to fill Peninsula from group’s efforts libraries with magic Readers Theatre Plus auction to provide college scholarships BY DIANE URBANI DE LA PAZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
SEQUIM — Readers Theatre Plus’ 2012-2013 season of shows, which ranged from “Lombardi” to “Cotton Patch Gospel” to “The Shadow Box,” generated nearly $30,000 for local nonprofit groups, said Jim Dries, co-founder of the theater troupe. Since its inception in 2006, Readers Theatre Plus has been staging comedies, dramas and Dries musicals with a twist: Net proceeds go to organizations such as the Museum & Arts Center in the Sequim-Dungeness Valley, the Sequim Guild for Seattle Children’s Hospital and Peninsula Friends of Animals. Another fundraiser gets under way this weekend. A silent auction and raf-
fle will take place at the Dungeness Schoolhouse, 2781 Towne Road, concurrent with the Readers Theatre Plus-Peninsula Singers production of “The Mikado.” (See related story on “The Mikado,” beginning on Page B1 today and jumping to this page, below.) Theatergoers will be invited to bid on more than 50 auction items donated by businesses around the region.
Silent auction items
Sunday and June 30. Proceeds from the auction and raffle will go toward another primary Readers Theatre Plus initiative: college scholarships for local teenagers, particularly those who plan on careers in the arts. “Each year, we’ve increased the number of scholarships we give,” Dries said. In 2013, six awards of $800 each went to Port Angeles high school seniors Lucy Grace Bert, Elizabeth Helwick and Heather Kauffman, and to Sequim seniors Amanda Bennett, Emily Carel and Victoria LaCroix. So there’s a double meaning to the Readers Theatre Plus motto of “enriching the community through the arts,” Dries noted. The troupe seeks to produce good theater in Sequim, he said, while putting real money into the bank for nonprofit groups. More details can be found at www.Readers TheatrePlus.com and 360797-3337.
Among the items: tickets to Key City Public Theatre plays in Port Townsend, to a 5th Avenue Theatre musical in Seattle and to the season of Port Angeles Community Players shows; yoga classes in Carlsborg; ukulele, guitar or piano lessons in Sequim; and gift certificates for Mad Maggi, Les Schwab Tire Center and Sunny Farms.

Louie Foxx, a young man from Coon Lake Beach, Minn., makes magic all over the place. He lives in Seattle now. But he travels, with tricks up his sleeves, across the Northwest, Midwest and California. Between mid-June and Labor Day weekend, he’s got 188 shows on the calendar. Five are on the North Olympic Peninsula, where Foxx will travel with his daughter and assistant, Ella, 9. She invents jokes, provides conversation on the road and loves the motel swimming pool. And during the show itself, Ella’s feats include balancing six spinning gold-panning pans. Her father’s repertoire, meanwhile, mixes plenty of comedy, a magic time capsule and gravitydefying dirt. “No one will believe what’s in the time capsule at the end of the show,” Foxx vowed.
Port Townsend today The magician and his daughter will stop first at the old Port Townsend Library, 1220 Lawrence St., at 2 p.m. today for a dual-purpose party: a celebration of the Carnegie library’s 100th birthday and the kickoff of the children’s summer reading program. More information is at 360-385-3181 and www. PTPublicLibrary.org. Admission is free to all of Foxx’s shows, which he says are 40 minutes long and both kid- and adult-friendly. Foxx performs in comedy clubs and casinos as well as libraries, while he has a soft spot for the latter, since his mother took him to the library when he was a boy hungry for books on magic tricks.
Schedule next week Next on the Foxx itinerary are the North
Seattle-based magician Louie Foxx will put on a string of free shows in the coming week at libraries from Port Townsend to Clallam Bay with the assistance of his daughter. Olympic Library System locations (www.NOLS. org). He’ll do shows at all four. They are: ■ Monday — 10:30 a.m. at the temporary Forks Library at the West End Business and Technology Center, 71 Spartan Ave.; 2 p.m. at the Clallam Bay Library, 16990 state Highway 112; and 6:30 p.m. at the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St. ■ Tuesday — 10:30 a.m. at the Sequim Library, 630 N. Sequim Ave.; and 2 p.m. at the Port Angeles Library. Foxx has been at his game since 1996. And even after all these years, two sounds thrill him: gasps and laughter. “Every audience responds to things differ-
ently,” he said. In the Midwest, a joke will get a huge laugh, then only a chuckle back in Seattle. Ella helps keep the act fresh — and her dad awake. “She came up with three jokes while we were driving,” Foxx said. Then she tried showing him another piece of paper. “I can’t look at that” while at the wheel, he told her. When they arrived at their destination, Foxx looked. It was Ella’s bill for the jokes: $1 each.

Change your perspective to truly ‘see’ the world “Alas for those who see and don’t know what they are seeing” — Talmud
ISSUES OF FAITH Suzanne
In this week’s Torah portion DeBey (Numbers 22.525.9), Balak, the king of Moab, fearful of the increasing strength of the Israelites, orders a sorcerer, Balaam, to travel to their camp and curse them. However, when he arrives after an encounter with an angel, he can only praise Israel, rather than curse it: “How good are your tents, people of Jacob, and the places where you live, descendents of Israel.” The morning service in every Jewish synagogue begins with these Perceive the world words set to music, so, ironically, our Jewish prayers begin with words Along with the generosity shown in these stories, they also teach us we from a non-Jew. Balaam came prepared to see a must learn to truly “see” as we go hostile people, but instead, he saw a through our lives. holy nation and was able to set aside If we perceive someone as differhis preconceptions in order to bless ent from us, either in dress, gender, Israel. race, religion or politics, we must resist making preconceived judgSeeking goodness, beauty ments.

Prophet Elijah roams the world lookWe lose countless chances for ing for evidence of such goodness and showing love and concern to those beauty, that the messiah will arrive. around us as we busily connect with He waits to see if we will stop and show him a kindness, but we never our “friends” in cyberspace and miss know who he is since he is often disthe pain in the faces of those closest guised as a beggar. to us. THERE WAS A recent story about a shabbily dressed homeless man who sat on the same park bench every day while people walked past, ignoring his presence. When someone investigated, they found him living in a little room, his few possessions neatly stacked or hanging on pegs. It then was discovered that he had been giving most of his monthly checks to a local charity for years because, he said, others needed it more than him. There are similar tales of people living simple, austere lives, only to leave a fortune to charity when they die.
ransforming our world requires that you open the “eyesight of your mind” so you can truly “see” as God intended.
We may worry that by giving money to a stranger, it might be used unwisely, but there’s always the chance our kindness can change a life. Or it may be Elijah, and we’ll change the world. Our perspective of what and who is really important sometimes can become distorted.
Open ‘eyesight of your mind’ Changing that perspective takes a conscious effort to alter how we perceive our world. Rabbi Karyn Kedar said: “Perspective is the eyesight of the mind. It is how you choose to look at the world, events and possibilities. I have seen lives transformed when people make the choice to see things a different way” (God Whispers). Transforming our world requires that you open the “eyesight of your mind” so you can truly “see” as God intended. Kein yehi ratzon . . . may it be God’s will. Shalom.

Man admits to fire LAS VEGAS — Police said a 35-year-old man who admitted to setting fire to a Las Vegas church told them the pastor tried to “back door him” and was “not keeping it real.” A police report sheds more light on the arrest of 35-year-old Adrian Kincade, who was booked into Clark County jail on arson and burglary charges after the fire last Friday. Officials said the building is used by Nellis Baptist Church and Mission International Roca Eterna. No injuries were reported. Clark County fire officials estimated damages at $100,000. The report says Kincade told officers he used bricks to break the front glass door and used matches and paper to light up a bench and a table. A deacon told officers that Kincade previously threatened the pastor and bashed another deacon’s phone. Peninsula Daily News and The Associated Press

Hype starts for king season
Freshwater fishing The rivers are producing mixed results. Menkal went to the Bogachiel and Sol Duc rivers last weekend, and found “pretty sterile water,” meaning he didn’t see many fish. On the other hand, Bob Gooding of Olympic Sporting Goods (360-3746330) in Forks reports that springers and chinook are still being caught in the Sol Duc, and steelhead can be found in the Bogachiel and Lower Calawah. Gooding added that the melting of the large snowfall from last winter has kept the rivers at decent levels. Anglers heading to the lakes are also finding success. Menkal reports Lake Leland has maintained its productivity, and many anglers have found success at Sandy Shore.
Squid and tuna Ward Norden, a fishing tackle wholesaler and former fishery biologist, has told me of a few nonsalmon fishing options. ■ Squid: “These are very tasty critters and the sport fishery for them is great for both kids and adults,” Norden said. “Inside in Puget Sound, that fishery is in the dead of winter, but out here on the Strait of Juan de Fuca, it is a summer fishery for some reason known only to the squid. “The docks out at Neah Bay get them, as well as the public pier in downtown [Port Angeles].” Squid appear around the docks at night. Norden calls this time of year the “loligo vigil,” due to squid’s Latin name, loligo opalescens. TURN
Peninsula looks for title repeat PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — Peninsula College women’s soccer coach Kanyon Anderson said he hopes the Pirates will conclude the 2013 season as they ended 2012: Hoisting an NWAACC championship trophy. Defending its title seems like a difficult prospect, considering Peninsula graduated 11 players from last year’s team. But a strong Anderson group of returning sophomores, including NWAACC Player of the Year Bri Afoa, combined with a talented recruiting class, has Anderson talking repeat. “It is hard to imagine that we could have a much better season than we just had, but when I look at the players coming in for 2013, I can’t help thinking it is possible,” Anderson said. “The general trend that I see with the incoming class is a high level of technical skill and tactical awareness. “Every single player coming in plays for an organized, toplevel club team, which means these players are as ready for the college game as they can hope to be. “And, since we have such a strong returning class, I was not in a hurry to sign players. The ones I did sign are players I think will be great at Peninsula.” The recruiting class consists of 13 players: Three from Washington state, four from Nevada,

The class also includes sophomore transfer Bronte Fitzsimmons of Victoria. Here is a look at that outstanding recruiting class: ■ Lindsey Atkinson (midfield/forward, Beaverton, Ore.) Scored 14 goals with eight assists as a sophomore at South-
ridge High in Beaverton, but then did not play high school soccer her junior and senior years, instead becoming a prolific scorer, assist leader and four-year team captain for BSC Portland, a club team. She also played for the Olympic Development Program team in Oregon in 2009, and was a four-year letter winner in golf. “Lindsey comes from BSC
Portland, a club focused on open, attacking soccer,” Anderson said. “Lindsey is a key to her club’s success and will have a smooth transition to playing at Peninsula. “She has the strength to win the ball back in the midfield or to challenge opposing center backs. She has the skill to break down defenses with her dribbling and passing and she has a fantastic shot with both feet. “On top of all of this, she has a nose for the goal. Lindsey had a great tryout for us this spring and will only get better.” ■ Kayla Bell (midfielder, Portland) Bell, a midfielder at Cleveland High School in Portland was named first team All-Portland and 5A All-State honorable mention. Bell also plays midfield for the Westside Timbers FC. “Kayla is a tenacious, focused central midfielder,” Anderson said. “She is willing to do the hard work to win the ball back in the midfield, and she has the ability to distribute well, too. “Kayla strikes me as the kind of player who sees what needs to be done and simply does it. That kind of a player solves problems, and wins games for their team. “She is quick, strong and intelligent, and she has great enthusiasm. She will bring a good energy and great talent to our team both on and off the field.” ■ Alyssa Bertuleit (forward/ defender, Sparks, Nev.) While playing soccer at Sparks, Bertuleit earned a 4.0 grade-point average in 2009 and 2010, and won her high school’s Academic Achievement Award in 2009, 2010 and 2011. She also was the 2012 Midfielder of the Year, team MVP and team captain. She also won a First Team All-League Midfielder award. TURN
Trufant learning hard way Rookies take lumps in camp BY GEORGE HENRY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. — Desmond Trufant and Robert Alford aren’t having an easy time learning how to play cornerback in the NFL. And that’s just fine with Atlanta Falcons coach Mike Smith, who’s been watching the rookies try to defend Roddy White and Julio Jones during a mandatory three-day minicamp. Smith said Trufant and Alford are getting valuable experience against two of the league’s best receivers, and the rookies agree. “We want to get them ready to play, and the best way is to have them go against really good players,” Smith said. “They’re going against two of the best in the league, and Harry Douglas is not a bad receiver as well. They’re getting their fill.” The lessons haven’t stopped since Trufant, a first-round pick from Washington, and Alford, a second-round selection from Southeastern Louisiana, were
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Atlanta Falcons cornerback Desmond Trufant stretches during minicamp workouts Tuesday in Flowery Branch, Ga. drafted in late April. Trufant seems to have an advantage after growing up as the younger brother of Marcus Trufant, a free agent now with the Tennessee Titans after playing 10 years with the Seattle Seahawks, and Isaiah Trufant, who played in nine games with one start for the New York Jets
in 2012. The brothers all play cornerback, a position Desmond Trufant excelled at in starting 47 of 50 games as a four-year starter at Washington. But life in the NFL brings challenges that even Trufant wasn’t entirely ready for when lined up opposite White and
Jones, one of the league’s top receiving tandems. “They humbled me, to be honest,” Trufant said. “They’re big, they’re strong, they’re fast. They’re getting me better every day, and I’m just competing with them.” TURN
Wilhelmsen looking for his curveball BY RYAN DIVISH MCCLATCHY NEWS SERVICE
SEATTLE — If Tom Wilhelmsen is going to win back his job as the Seattle Mariners’ closer, one of the first things he needs to do is find command of his curveball. While fans ooh and ah over Wilhelmsen’s 96-100 mph fastball, he needs his knee-buckling breaking pitch to complement it. It’s what made him so good early. But in his recent troubles, Wilhelmsen lost the feel for his curve. He couldn’t throw for strikes, let alone retire hitters
M’s Notebook with it. The numbers show his struggles and lost confidence in the pitch. According to FanGraphs.com, Wilhelmsen has thrown his curveball 22.3 percent of the time this season, down from the 28.5 percent last year. And his strike percentage when he throws it is down from 42.9 percent to 31.3 percent. In his last save opportunity against Houston, Wilhelmsen lamented he couldn’t throw it
for a strike. The same thing happened in an earlier blown save against Minnesota. With no curveball, Wilhelmsen becomes a one-pitch pitcher. And no matter how hard he throws, big league hitters will catch up to it if he’s throwing the same thing over and over. They learn and adjust quickly. In Tuesday night’s win over the Angels, Wihelmsen couldn’t hold a 2-1 lead, giving up a solo home run to Albert Pujols. But there were a few positives in his five outs of work.
The first was that he didn’t fall apart after giving up the home run. He also was able to spot his curve for strikes, which helped him achieve the first positive. Of the eight curveballs he threw, four went for strikes. “I felt pretty good,” he said. “It was probably the best curve I’ve thrown all year.” Wilhelmsen has worked hard before games trying to regain his curve. “I’m just throwing the heck out of it, trying to throw all the [expletive] ones out of me,” he joked.
THIS YEAR’S SALTWATER chinook fishery is already receiving a lot of hype. There should Lee be plenty of hatchery kings Horton when the season opens, which is Saturday on the northern coast and Monday, July 1, on the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Hood Canal. “The forecast is strong for hatchery chinook, and the best we’ve seen in the last decade, but the proportion of wild fish continues to shrink,” Steve Thiesfeld, a state Fish and Wildlife salmon resource manager, told The Associated Press this month. Adding to that, Dawn Lawrence of Big Salmon Resort (360-645-2374) in Neah Bay reports that the commercial fishers near Neah Bay have had a significant harvest. So, knock on wood, there should be kings to catch. Brian Menkal of Brian’s Sporting Goods and More (360-683-1950) in Sequim will be offering you a chance to increase your knowledge of how to catch these fish. At his store’s new location (609 W. Washington St.; right next to J.C. Penney’s, in the old Frick Drug building) on Tuesday evening, Menkal will be hosting a seminar in which area chinook expert Rick Wray will spend 21⁄2 hours sharing tips on fishing for kings. “He’s really, really good,” Menkal said. “You’ll want to bring your notebook to this one.” Wray will discuss mooching, jigging and trolling for chinook. The class will be limited to 30 people, so call Brian’s Sporting Goods and More (360-683-1950) to reserve your spot. The cost is $25. Bring a chair, a notebook and a writing utensil. The class will run from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Rookies: Trufant challenging to start CONTINUED FROM B5 White, a four-time Pro Bowl selection, last season became just the fifth NFL player with three straight years of at least 90 catches and 1,200 or more yards receiving. Jones was invited to his first Pro Bowl after catching 79 passes for 1,198 yards and 10 touchdowns. Jones, who’s accustomed to practicing hard in each drill, believes Trufant and Alford have the skills and mindsets to succeed. But he added that it’s not his job to go easy on the rookies. “They’re trying,” Jones said with a grin. “But they don’t give up. They give effort. They’ve got heart, and that’s one thing you can’t teach.”
Alford felt fortunate on the first day of mini-camp to beat White on a crossing route. Quarterback Matt Ryan put the ball in White’s hands, but Alford played the correct technique and was in position to knock the ball to the ground. Both players were running at full speed, but White kept going after the play was whistled dead. Instead of doing his customary slow lap back up the field following a play, White slammed his hand into the wall of the indoor practice facility and made a crashing noise. Alford was quick to say that he wasn’t trying to upstage White. He only wanted to break up the pass. “I think going against Julio and Roddy every day in one-onones is getting me better because
both of them are Pro Bowl-caliber receivers,” Alford said. “I’m going against the best, and I think that’s the one thing I can do to help me get better as a player.” Alford is listed behind starting left cornerback Asante Samuel on the depth chart. Trufant is challenging Robert McClain for the starting job at right cornerback. Samuel, a brash veteran renowned for shouting his confidence in practice, is helping both rookies adjust on the field and in the film room. “He’s been in the league 10 years,” Alford said. “He’s been to the Pro Bowl. “He’s had a bunch of interceptions and a bunch of rings from playing with the New England Patriots. I’m learning a lot from
him every day.” NOTES: Smith announced that training camp will begin July 25 with an afternoon workout that is open to the public. He added that the Falcons will not tackle until their annual Friday Night Lights event one week after camp starts. This year’s event is being held at City Park in Gainesville, Ga. Samuel (ankle) and S Thomas DeCoud (groin) didn’t participate in the final practice of minicamp for precautionary reasons. Smith said neither injury was serious and he wanted to give some of the younger defensive backs a longer look anyway. TE Tony Gonzalez wasn’t required to be at the minicamp — part of his contract to play another season instead of retiring.

SPARKS, NEV., TRIBUNE
Reedâ€™s Katelyn Raatz goes up for a header during first-half action of the Raidersâ€™ 9-0 home win over Hug last fall. Raatz, who will be playing for the Peninsula Pirates this fall, had a hat trick on the day. â€œEmily is a gifted multisport athlete,â€? Anderson said. â€œDespite all her ability in other sports and as a soccer midfielder, goalkeeper may be her best position. â€œEmily was incredible in the three times I saw her play this winter. She is brave, skilled and technical, and she has a very calm demeanor, which is important when things get hectic. â€œEmily will also be playing basketball at Peninsula College this winter, making her just the third player to play both soccer and basketball at Peninsula.â€? â– Kasie Lough (goalkeeper/forward, Roy) Lough is a tremendous multi-sport athlete. She was a three-year starter at Roy High School where she was named second team All-South Puget Sound League striker her senior year when she served as team captain, led her team in goals and was named team MVP. â€œShe was also a threeyear varsity player and the team captain of her basketball team, and a state qualifier in shot put as a track and field standout. â€œKasie is, first and foremost, an athlete,â€? Anderson said. â€œThat was clear immediately when I saw her play. â€œShe is tall, strong, coor-
dinated and quick. These qualities already make her a successful goalkeeper, and combined with her strong work ethic, she has the potential to be exceptional. â€œJust this spring, Kasie led her club team to a second-place finish at state. Two of the opposing coaches called to tell me what a talented goalkeeper she is.â€? â– Larkyn Nelson (midfielder, Bellingham) Nelson is an honor-roll student who was a four-year varsity starter and a threetime First Team All-League winner, who led the Red Raiders with 17 goals and eight assists her senior season, earning the Player of the Year Award. â€œLarkyn is a tenacious dribbler with a wicked shot,â€? Anderson said. â€œNearly every shot she hits knuckles and drops, which allows her to score goals from farther out than most players. â€œHer quickness and dribbling skill allow her to go past defenders as well. Larkyn is a dual threat to defenses and will be difficult to contain when she receives the ball with space to work. â€œShe is humble and willing to work to improve. I look for her to rack up goals and assists as a freshman.â€? â– Mary Pierce (striker,
Beaverton, Ore.) Pierce was a fouryear starter at Aloha High School, and has had significant Fitzsimmons success playing club ball as well. She currently plays for BSC Joga Bonita FC, and helped that team qualify for the Far West regionals. She also played for Oregonâ€™s ODP team in 2009-2010. â€œMary is a technical player and a strong target striker,â€? Anderson said. â€œShe is excellent at keeping the ball in tight situations, which allows time for other players to get into the attack. â€œMary can fight through tackles, she is good in the air and most importantly, she scores goals. According to her club coach, she has the potential to be a prolific goal scorer. â€œI hope that by surrounding her with talented teammates, she will have many opportunities to demonstrate that scoring knack.â€? â– Katelyn Raatz (midfielder/defender, Sparks, Nev.) Raatz played four years of varsity soccer at Sparks High where she served as team captain her junior and senior years. She also was part of the Nevada Elite team that won the USCS West Region championship and qualified for nationals. â€œKatelyn has impressed me with her quickness and skill every time I have watched her play,â€? Anderson said. â€œShe can go from a jog to a sprint about as effortlessly as I have seen. That change of pace can be very difficult to defend. â€œIt allows Katelyn to receive the ball without hurry and then quickly get to top speed to beat defenders. â€œOn top of that, Katelyn can use her quickness to be a lock-down defender. Through her high school and club career, she has played both positions with a high level of success, and I expect that will be the case at Peninsula as well.â€? â– Brenda Torres (midfielder, Carson City, Nev.) Torres was the team captain for the Nevada Elite Futbol Club that won the Northern Nevada Region championship in 2011 and then went on to be USCS West Region champions and place third in the nation in 2012. She lettered three times at Carson High School where she was team captain and recipient of the â€œBest Forward of the Yearâ€? award.
â€œBrenda is a player who understands the game and makes the players around her better, which might be why she is often named captain of her teams,â€? Anderson said. â€œShe is skilled enough to do many things on her own, but she tends to make the simple, intelligent decision. She is strong, skilled and can strike the ball with power. â€œBrenda will make us a more mature, focused team.â€? â– Brittney Yoshimura (midfield, Mililani, Hawaii) Brittney Yoshimura made the top travel roster for the Hawaii Rush Soccer Club, and was a big part of her Mililani High School teamâ€™s success, helping it to a third-place finish in the Hawaii state soccer championships. â€œBrittneyâ€™s skill, pace and vision make her a great addition to our team,â€? Anderson said. â€œHer ability to control the ball, to complete intelligent and skillful passes, and to dribble with pace and precision set her apart from many players her age. â€œShe will give us the composure we need in the middle of the field, and she will be able to move out to the wing to play a more direct, attacking role. â€œBrittney will be a player who will help us possess for long stretches, and then have the extra class to finish opportunities in front of the net.â€? â– Brooke Yoshimura (defender/midfield, Mililani, Hawaii) Brooke Yoshimura, sister of Brittney, also made the top travel roster for the Hawaii Rush Soccer Club, and also helped the Trojans to their top-three finish at state. Brooke was named second team All-State. â€œAccording to the coaches I spoke with, Brooke was considered one of the strongest outside defenders in the state this year,â€? Anderson said. â€œShe is quick, tough and blessed with good instinct. What I like about Brookeâ€™s game is that once she wins the ball, she is able to advance forward on the dribble. â€œWe had two outstanding outside defenders last year in Ashlynn Frizzelle, who is bound for St. Maryâ€™s, and Aubrey Briscoe, who is going to Montana State in Billings, who allowed us to attack out of the back. â€œBrooke could be the next in the line of great attacking defenders at Peninsula College. In addition, she can play in the midfield whenever needed.â€?
