City Attorney John Watts, right, administers the oath of office to City Council members Kris Nelson, David King, Deborah Stinson and Bob Gray, from left. The council then elected King to be the new mayor.
PORT TOWNSEND â€” David King, who ran unopposed for a second term on the Port Townsend City Council in 2011 has been elected the townâ€™s 48th mayor. â€œI havenâ€™t been as nervous as I am now since my eighth-grade piano recital,â€? King said after seating himself in the mayorâ€™s chair on Tuesday night. â€œI hope this turns out better.â€? King was nominated by Mayor Michelle Sandoval and received
unanimous support from the other five council members. Councilwoman Kris Nelson, who also ran unopposed in the most recent election, was unanimously elected deputy mayor after a nomination by Councilman Mark Welch. Along with King and Nelson, new council members Bob Gray and Deborah Stinson were also sworn in on Tuesday night. In the Nov. 8 general election, Stinson defeated Jack Range by 20 votes for the Port Townsend City Council seat vacated by Laurie Medlicott, and Gray defeated Deputy Mayor George Randels. Port Townsend has a â€œweak mayorâ€? system that elects mayors from the council to serve in a largely ceremonial role. TURN
Gregoire supports same-sex marriage Governor says she wrestled with own religion before taking stand BY RACHEL LA CORTE THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
OLYMPIA â€” Gov. Chris Gregoire publicly supported legalizing same-sex marriage in Washington state, saying Wednesday that she came to the decision after several years of battling her own uncertainty on the issue. â€œI have been on my own journey, Iâ€™ll admit that,â€? Gregoire said at a news conference announcing her support of a legalization bill that will Gregoire be introduced in the Legislature next week. â€œIt has been a battle for me with my religion.â€? The Democrat, a Roman Catholic, previously had supported efforts to expand the stateâ€™s current law on domestic partner rights for gay couples, but had not come out in favor of full marriage rights.
â€œIâ€™ve always been uncomfortable with the position I took publicly,â€? she said. â€œThen I came to realize, the religions can decide what they want to do, but itâ€™s not OK for the state to discriminate.â€?
Gay-rights supporters Gregoireâ€™s announcement was met with loud applause from gayrights groups who crowded her conference room. â€œItâ€™s about damn time,â€? said 75-year-old John McCluskey of Tacoma, who attended the news conference with his partner of 53 years, Rudy Henry. The couple registered as domestic partners the first year that they could, in 2007. â€œAt our age, we donâ€™t know how long weâ€™ll be around,â€? he said. â€œWeâ€™d really like to get married.â€?

PORT ANGELES â€” The Lower Elwha Klallam tribe plans to rebury a skull found on a beach near the mouth of the Elwha River. Tribal Chairwoman Frances Charles said the skull was found Monday afternoon by tribal members. It has been placed in a
cedar box pending reburial. Bill White, tribal archeologist, said the skull belonged to a set of remains repatriated from the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture in Seattle in 1980 and buried near the river mouth. It was apparently unearthed through erosion, he said. TURN

Cannon in hospital with kidney failure NICK CANNON IS spending the first week of the new year in the hospital, with wife Mariah Carey by his side. Carey tweeted that Cannon is suffering from “mild kidney failure.” His representative Cannon confirmed Cannon’s hospitalization. He is in Aspen, Colo., where he and Carey were vacationing. Carey posted a picture on her website of a miserable-looking Cannon in a hospital bed as she lay beside him. She asked for prayers and said Cannon’s situation was “very painful.” She later called it a “serious moment that’s very tough on all of us.” The pair became the parents of twins — a boy and a girl — last year. Cannon is 31. His representative had no further information Wednesday about his condition but said he is still hospitalized.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney listens as Sen. John McCain speaks during a gathering in Manchester, N.H., on Wednesday.
Romney takes Iowa, gets McCain support Bachmann quits after poor showing in state of her birth THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
MANCHESTER, N.H. — Mitt Romney eagerly pocketed an endorsement from two-time New Hampshire primary winner John McCain on Wednesday and bid to convert a single-digit victory in Iowa into a Republican presidential campaign juggernaut. Unimpressed, Newt Gingrich ridiculed the former Massachusetts governor as a liberal turned moderate now masquerading as a conservative. Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum sought to rally conservatives to his side after coming achingly close to victory in the Iowa caucuses. “This is a wide-open race still,” added former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, who skipped the Iowa caucuses in hopes of making his mark in next Tuesday’s first-inthe-nation primary. Romney is the odds-on favorite to win the New Hampshire pri-
mary, and the endorsement of McCain, an Arizona senator, made his welcome in the state a warm one. “The time has arrived for Republicans to choose a presidential nominee, a new standard bearer who has the ability and determination to defeat President Obama,” said the 2008 Republican presidential nominee, a man with a demonstrated appeal to the state’s independent voters. Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann ended her campaign after a dreary 5 percent showing in Iowa, the state where she was born. After suggesting he, too, might withdraw, Texas Gov. Rick Perry decided otherwise. “Here we come South Carolina!!!” he tweeted. That primary is Jan. 21 and will mark the first balloting in the South as well as in a state that is part of the Republican Party’s conservative, political base nationally. Iowa, for months ground zero in
the Republican race, yielded an almost impossibly close finish. Romney emerged with an eightvote victory over Santorum, whose grass-roots campaigning produced a late surge that fell just shy of victory. Texas Rep. Ron Paul finished third, followed by Gingrich, Perry and Bachmann. A survey of Iowa caucus-goers highlighted the internal divisions in the GOP as it sets out to find a challenger to President Barack Obama. Romney, who campaigned as the man best positioned to defeat Obama, was the favorite by far among caucus-goers who said that goal was their priority. Paul was preferred by those who said what mattered most was backing a true conservative. Santorum ran particularly well among those who said they were looking for a candidate with strong moral character. Paul outpolled his rivals among younger voters and gained an estimated 48 percent share of selfidentified independents, a group that traditionally plays a major role in determining the outcome of New Hampshire’s primary.
Off-duty agent friendly-fire victim? THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
GARDEN CITY, N.Y. — Street smarts, judgment, discretion. Other than relying on those skills taught at the police academy and honed through experience, offduty and retired law enforcement officers appear to have few protocols to follow when confronting a crime out of uniform, like the apparent friendly fire that left a federal agent dead on New Year’s Eve. And when different police agencies are involved, with unfamiliar officers coming face to face and making snap decisions about life and death, the peril is greater, according to a 2010 New York state study of police-on-police shootings that called for uniform protocols across agencies.
The task force created in 2010 by then-Gov. David Paterson found “enormous variation” in how thoroughly departments across the country train for encounters between police officers in and out of uniform — “if they train at all.” “The multiplicity of agencies is a source of many problems in policing, but it raises particular problems when officers from one agency confront an officer out of uniform from another agency, mistaking the confronted officer for a criminal,” the report said. John Capano, a 51-year-old offduty agent for the federal bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, was shot Saturday in Seaford while struggling with 43-year-old suspect James McGoey during a robbery for prescription painkillers and cash at a small
family pharmacy. Capano, an explosives expert who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, was a customer and followed the suspect outside. Police said someone ran into a nearby deli and shouted that the drugstore was being robbed. A retired Nassau County police lieutenant and an off-duty NYPD officer who were in the deli ran to the pharmacy. Shots were fired, and Capano and McGoey were killed. On Tuesday, a law enforcement official speaking on the condition of anonymity told The Associated Press the retired county officer likely shot Capano. Nassau County police have not commented on details, citing the ongoing investigation.

The director of the National Museum in the southwestern city of Wroclaw, Mariusz Hermansdorfer, said Wednesday that the action revealed some security breaches, but he also considered it a “witty artistic happening.” The museum has kept the painting on display — in its cafe. It will be offered for sale at Poland’s biggest charity auction Sunday.

PA city finance chief put on leave State Patrol to probe self-payout BY TOM CALLIS PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” The State Patrol will investigate whether the head of the cityâ€™s finances broke state law by authorizing $28,862 in payments to herself through a program that allows employees to â€œcash outâ€? unused leave, according to Port Angeles City Manager Kent Myers. Myers announced in a statement Wednesday that the investigation â€” which comes two months after a state Auditorâ€™s report highlighted limited oversight of the program â€” will start this week. Finance Director Yvonne
Ziomkowski has denied any intentional wrongdoing. She was placed on paid administrative leave Tuesday pending the completion of the investigation. Ziomkowski has pledged to repay the funds, which went toward her retirement. Myers, who last month placed additional oversight and controls over the cashout program, said no determination has been made on whether any laws were broken. â€œAs city manager, I have a legal and ethical obligation to ensure that this incident is fully investigated and that, if a crime has been committed, proper action is taken,â€? he said. Myers said he had consulted with Clallam County Prosecuting Attorney Deb Kelly, who recommended the State Patrol conduct its own investigation. Kelly was out of town
Wednesday attending to a family emergency and couldnâ€™t be reached for comment. Clallam Ziomkowski C o u n t y Chief Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Mark Nichols said the office sometimes recommends the State Patrol conduct an investigation involving local governments to avoid any conflict of interest. The State Patrol referred all comment to Myers. Ziomkowski received the payments by cashing out 896 hours of unused leave since January 2009, far in excess of city policy that allows employees to turn between 80 and 120 hours of leave each year into cash or be contributed toward retirement.

Memories of 2008â€“ The killing brought back memories of the killing of U.S. Forest Service Officer Kristine Fairbanks in a campground south of Sequim in September 2008. The 51-year-old wife and mother from Forks was fatally shot after she stopped a suspicious van in the Dungeness Forks campground about six miles south of Sequim. Shawn Roe, 36, of Everett, who authorities believed to be the shooter was killed in a shootout with Clallam County deputies later that night.

Kidd PA mayor in unanimous vote Deputy also elected by council PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — The City Council came under new leadership Tuesday evening with Councilwoman Cherie Kidd taking over as mayor. Councilman Brad Collins became the new deputy mayor. Kidd, who is serving her second term on the council, was elected unanimously by her colleagues. She replaced Councilman Dan Di Guilio, who had served as mayor for the past two years. The mayor acts as the chair of the council and helps direct discussion at meetings. The mayor is also the public “face” of the community. Council members receive $550 a month. The mayor earns $650; deputy mayor, $600.

drug at the federal level. The federal government lists marijuana as a Schedule 1 drug, which means it is considered to have no medical value. Heroin is also in that category. Councilman Max Mania called it a “sensible move.” “I think it’s something that is going to happen sooner or later,” he said. “I would love it if we were part of the sooner rather
than the later.” Di Guilio said he sympathizes with cancer patients who use marijuana as a pain reliever but voted no because he considers the move to be a “slippery slope.” “To take a drastic step at this moment is not appropriate,” he said.

State poll finds pot legalization split THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SEATTLE — Washington voters appear split on whether to legalize marijuana. The Seattle Times reported that a new Elway Poll of 411 voters found 48 percent in favor and 45 percent opposed, within the margin of error of 5 percentage points.
Initiative 502, which would legalize and tax sales of marijuana to adults 21 and over, is headed to the Legislature next week. Unless lawmakers approve it outright, it will be sent to voters on the November ballot. The support was down from an Elway poll in July, when 54 percent of respondents favored legalization in
response to a more general question. Alison Holcomb, the initiative’s campaign director, noted the Elway poll question was broadly worded, without mentioning the $215 million in estimated annual marijuana tax revenue or other specific I-502 provisions that are popular with voters.

PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St., will begin its winter story time series Friday. Story times feature stories, music, dance, storytelling and fingerplays, and they create critical early-literacy opportunities for young children and their parents or caregivers. Different types of story time experiences are offered, each specifically designed for children of different ages. “Story times are fun and help teach language skills and promote a love of reading,” said librarian Jennifer Knight. “Library story times support parents and caregivers by giving them tips on how to read, talk, sing, and play with their children, and can ultimately play an important role in preparing children for a successful school experience.” Toddler story times for children ages 18 months to 3 years include rhymes, songs, dancing and books. They will be at 10:15 a.m. Fridays until March 30. Preschool story times for children ages 3 to 5 will be held at 11 a.m. Fridays until March 30. All-ages pajama story times will be held at 6:30 p.m. Tuesdays until March 27. Four themed series of three to four Baby & Me Storytimes for newborns to 1-year-olds also will be offered.

PORT ANGELES â€” Four finalists for Jim McEntireâ€™s vacant Port of Port Angeles commission position were selected Wednesday from 12 applicants. Port of Port Angeles Commissioners John Calhoun and Jim Hallett, who narrowed the field at a special meeting, will interview Sequim-area District 1 applicants Paul McHugh, Gerald Stiles, Sterling Epps and Shawn Hankins at the regular port meeting at

Two charged in burglaries Men arrested in separate incidences PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
SEQUIM â€” Two Sequim men have been charged with residential burglary in separate incidences. Dominic Anthony Megrant, 20, is charged with one count of residential burglary, a Class B felony, punishable by a prison term of up to 10 years, or a fine of $20,000. Megrant is alleged to have broken into a Sequim home on Sunset Place and stolen more than $600 in cash, bank checks and $700 worth of prescription medications, court documents state. Megrant is scheduled for arraignment at 1:30 p.m. Friday in Callam County Superior Judge George L. Woodâ€™s court.
William Alan Duncan, 19, of Sequim, is charged in a separate incident with residential burglary of a Mountain View Drive home, trafficking in stolen property and third-degree theft, a gross misdemeanor. Duncan is scheduled to go to trial Feb. 27 after he pleaded not guilty Dec. 21, court records show. Clallam County Sheriffâ€™s investigators said in court records they found fingerprints on the outer pane of a kitchen window in the home on Sunset Place, and the State Patrol Crime Lab confirmed they belonged to Megrant, deputies said. Megrant was arrested Oct. 17 on suspicion of residential burglary and thirddegree theft. He was charged with residential burglary Nov. 28 and appeared in court Dec. 30, when he was released on personal recognizance. Duncan remained in the Clallam County jail as of Wednesday.

rdAge Mastodon find topic of talk
Medicare open enrollment coming YOU GUYS ARE hardcore! It’s Jan. 5 of a new year. We’re surrounded by opportunity and the prospect of Valentine’s Day. You ought to be recovering from the frenzy of the holiday spirit and the vagaries of airline schedules. But, oh no! Not you guys. You want to talk about . . . Medicare? OK, while I think your time would be better spent burying last year’s fruitcake in the neighbor’s backyard, I live to serve, so (since you’re asking) Medicare it is. Yes, there is another “open enrollment” coming up. Some people, professionals and bureaucracies like to argue about whether or not it should be called an “open enrollment” because there are two or three other equally obtuse monikers that can be applied, but for most of us who are just trying to navigate this sucker, it’s an “open enrollment.” Beginning Jan. 1 and running through Feb. 14 (I know — no, I don’t know.

Do we suppose that all those folks stop needing hospitals or health care? Probably not. So, what do we suppose that they do? Right, same thing you and I would do: Go to the ER and end up becoming “charity care.” And do we suppose that our hospitals have an infinite capacity to absorb more and more and more charity care? Probably not. Could a hospital actually have to . . . close? Yes, or dramatically reduce services or something because this is America, and everything runs on money. Nothing runs on nothing. So this whole economic “thing” may not be just about the folks who are actually on those programs; it may also be about you and me and Grandma. Oh, well, as long as I’m on a soapbox, consider this: Hospitals are businesses, right? Patients (customers) come in, services get rendered, hospital gets paid.
Birthday Wilma Beck Murray Wilma Murray will celebrate her 85th birthday Friday, Jan. 6, with family. There will be an open-house birthday celebration Sunday, Jan. 15, at 1 p.m. at the home of her Mrs. Murray daughter Roxanne Brickey, 31 Brueckner Road, Sequim.
Friends are invited to phone 360-683-4764 for directions, and she requests no gifts. She was born Jan. 6, 1927, in Mandan, N.D., the youngest of four children. When she was a year and a half, the family moved to Lynden, where she grew up and graduated from Lynden High School in 1946. After marrying Gene Beck of Ferndale, the couple moved to Forks, where Mr. Beck began working for the Clallam County Public Utility District and Mrs. Beck worked part time as a nurse’s aide at the old Forks Maternity Hospital.
Rather like a beauty salon. So, if a business (hospital) doesn’t have enough customers, what happens? Right. Same thing that happens to the beauty salon. Sound fun? No. So, when you hear about shopping and buying “locally” to support our local economies, consider applying that same principle to our local hospitals. Now, certainly, if you need to go somewhere else to get the care you need, then go. I would. But if you can get what you need here . . . well, “here” is where you live. But I digress. What this whole column should have been about is what to get 98-year-old Aunt Tillie for next Christmas. Do hospitals sell gift cards?

Boeing leaving Wichita Defense budget cuts take toll on 2,160 workers BY ROXANA HEGEMAN THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WICHITA, Kan. — Faced with defense budget reductions, the Boeing Co. announced Wednesday it will close its defense plant in Wichita by the end of 2013. The closure will cost more than 2,160 workers their jobs and end the firm’s presence in a city where it has been a major employer for generations. The decision was not entirely unexpected. The company said in November it was studying whether to close the Wichita facility, which specializes in modifying commercial aircraft for military or government operations, to address Defense Department budget cuts. The first layoffs are expected to begin in the third quarter of 2012.
The company said it was moving future aircraft maintenance, modification and support to its plant in San Antonio, Texas, and engineering work to Oklahoma City. Work on the Air Force refueling tanker will be performed in Puget Sound. The company said the 24 Kansas suppliers on that program will continue to provide parts as originally planned. “In this time of defense budget reductions, as well as shifting customer priorities, Boeing has decided to close its operations in Wichita to reduce costs, increase efficiencies and drive competitiveness,” said Mark Bass, vice president and general manager for the Boeing Defense, Space & Security facility in Wichita. The study came even as the Pentagon had been
working to prevent $500 billion in automatic, acrossthe-board defense budget cuts over 10 years in the wake of the failure by a bipartisan congressional supercommittee to agree on $1.2 trillion or more in deficit reductions. Wichita had hoped the number of jobs at the facility would grow after Boeing won a contract worth at least $35 billion to build 179 Air Force refueling tankers. The modification work on the planes had been expected to be done at Boeing’s Wichita plant — bringing with it 7,500 direct and indirect jobs with an overall economic impact of nearly $390 million. Wichita Mayor Carl Brewer said the city, which prides itself as being the air capital of the world, has a long history with Boeing in the community.
Brewer noted he worked there for 20 years before the company sold off its commercial operations. “Many people — generations upon generations — have had an opportunity to be employed there and that could very easily be the end of that . . . They are a very important part of us here,” Brewer said. But the mayor said the city would move on and take care of those families and continue working to be the “air capital of the world.” “This is not the first time we have had something of this magnitude. We have had other challenges and we have always managed to work through it and been able to survive,” Brewer said. Boeing has had a facility in Wichita since it bought the Stearman Aircraft Co. in 1929.
Obama installs consumer chief Republicans in Senate bypassed; they’re outraged THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SHAKER HEIGHTS, Ohio — A defiant President Barack Obama, tired of Senate Republicans stalling his nominee to lead a new consumer protection agency, put him in charge Wednesday over their opposition. Outraged GOP leaders in Congress immediately suggested that courts would determine whether Richard Cordray’s appointment was illegal. With a director in place, Obama said the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
can start overseeing the mortgage companies, payday lenders, debt collectors and other financial operations often blamed for practices that helped undermine the economy. Obama announced the move with Cordray by his side before a cheering crowd in Ohio, a politically vital state where Cordray once was attorney general. “Every day that we waited was another day when millions of Americans are left unprotected,” Obama. Until Cordray took over, the office didn’t have all the tools needed “to protect consumers against dishonest mortgage brokers or payday lenders, and debt collectors who are taking advantage of
consumers,” Obama said. “And that’s inexcusable. It’s wrong.” In political terms, the recess appointment during the congressional break raised the level of confrontation for a president seeking re-election by championing the middle class and challenging an unpopular Congress. Acting right after Tuesday’s GOP presidential caucuses in Iowa, Obama sought to grab attention and show he would not be slowed, making his most brazen leap-frog over Congress. Senate Republicans had halted Cordray’s nomination because they think the consumer agency is too powerful and unaccountable. The Senate’s top Republi-
can, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, accused Obama of an unprecedented power grab that “arrogantly circumvented the American people.” Added House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio: “It’s clear the president would rather trample our system of separation of powers than work with Republicans to move the country forward. “This action goes beyond the president’s authority, and I expect the courts will find the appointment to be illegitimate.” It was unclear who might undertake a legal fight. But people familiar with the matter said an outside private group regulated by the consumer agency might be in the best legal position.
NEW YORK — Yahoo Inc. has named Scott Thompson, president of eBay Inc.’s PayPal division, as its CEO, the fourth one in less than five years for the struggling Internet company. Yahoo, which announced its choice Wednesday, has been without a permanent CEO since early September. It fired Carol Bartz after losing patience with her attempts to turn around the company during her 2½ years on the job. Tim Morse, Yahoo’s chief financial officer, has been interim CEO since Bartz’s ouster. Thompson has served as president of PayPal, eBay’s online payment service, since January 2008. He previously served as PayPal’s senior vice president and chief technology officer. Yahoo said Thompson’s new job starts on Jan. 9. Morse will return to his CFO post.
Pooling points NEW YORK — Citibank customers can now use Facebook to pool their rewards points online. The bank on Tuesday launched a Facebook application that lets users team up to use their points, whether it’s for charity, a group gift or a personal goal. Citi said it’s the first bank to offer such a feature. The app builds on a service Citi introduced last year that lets customers transfer points to one another on the bank’s home page. After getting feedback, executives decided to expand the rewards sharing capability and offer it through social media. The company is giving away 2,500 free rewards
Real-time stock quotations at peninsuladailynews.com
points to each of the first 4,000 customers to sign up. To get started, customers download the ThankYou Point Sharing App, which is linked on Citi’s Facebook page at www. facebook.com/citibank. Customers can then start a rewards pool by naming a recipient and explaining its purpose. The recipient of the points maintains control of any contributions, so it’s best if you know and trust that person.

Honda hybrid mpg in small claims court BY LINDA DEUTSCH THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
TORRANCE, Calif. — A Los Angeles woman who expected her hybrid Honda Civic to be a high-mileage machine wants the automaker to pay for not delivering the 50 mpg it promised. But rather than being one of thousands in a classaction lawsuit, she took her case Tuesday to small claims court. Experts said Heather Peters has a better chance of winning her case in a court with more relaxed standards and could get a payout many times higher than the few hundred dollars offered to class-action plaintiffs. Peters said she’s been contacted by hundreds of owners who also want to take their chances with small-claims, where there
are no attorneys’ fees and cases are decided quickly. “If I prevail and get $10,000, they have 200,000 of these cars out there,” said Peters. Peters, a state employee and ex-lawyer, argued that Honda knew her car wouldn’t get the 50 mpg as advertised before a judge in Torrance, where American Honda Motor Co. has its West Coast headquarters. As her 2006 vehicle’s battery deteriorated over time, it barely got 30 mpg, she said. Neil Schmidt, a technical expert for Honda, called Peters’ $10,000 claim excessive for her 2006 Civic Hybrid. He said the federal government had required Honda to post the highest mileage the car could get,
but said the mileage varies depending on how the car is driven — for instance, if it gets stuck often in stop-andgo traffic. Peters said she would have never purchased the car if she had known that.
Reason for purchase “The sales force said 50 miles per gallon, but they didn’t say if you run your air conditioning and you remain in stop-and-go traffic, you’re going to get 29 to 30 miles per gallon,” she said. “If they did, I would have gotten the regular Civic.” Peters never contacted Honda to complain or express any concern about her vehicle’s fuel economy until she sent a letter in late November and then filed her suit shortly thereafter, Honda said in a state-
ment Tuesday. In response, Peters said she did not write to Honda’s corporate offices sooner because she was repeatedly told by Honda dealers that the company had a strict policy not to replace batteries until the dashboard warning light was lit. In a statement, the company also said that it offered to inspect her vehicle and work with her on the findings, but those offers were rejected. Peters called that claim “absolutely false.” The company also said it did not believe Peters was deceived. “The window sticker that was attached to her vehicle (as required by federal law) clearly indicated that her mileage would vary depending on driving conditions,
options, vehicle condition and other factors,” the statement said. But if Peters wins, and other Civic owners follow her lead, she estimates Honda could be forced to pay as much as $2 billion in damages. Experts say there are many upsides to Peters’ unusual move. “I would not be surprised if she won,” said Richard Cupp Jr., who teaches product-liability law at Pepperdine University. “The judge will have a lot of discretion, and the evidentiary standards are relaxed in small-claims court.” A judge in San Diego County is due to rule in March on whether to approve Honda’s classaction settlement offer for

Mount Rainier shooter died of drowning Park to reopen Saturday THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SEATTLE — A man who shot a Mount Rainier National Park ranger on New Year’s Day died of drowning, with hypothermia another significant condition, an autopsy found. Ranger Margaret Anderson, a 34-year-old mother of two who was married to another park ranger, was shot and killed Sunday by Benjamin Colton Barnes, a 24-year-old Iraq war veteran. After searching by plane and snowshoe, investigators found Barnes’ body face-down in a snowy creek Monday, with a handgun and a rifle nearby. The Pierce County medical examiner’s office completed an autopsy Tuesday.
Reopen on Saturday The park will reopen to the public Saturday, and all services with the exception of snow play will be available this weekend. The park has been closed since Anderson was shot to
death as she tried to stop a car that failed to pull over at a checkpoint requiring drivers to put chains on their vehicles. A memorial service is being planned. Staff at Mount Rainier National Park gathered Tuesday to grieve her loss — and to wonder what led the gunman, heavily armed and carrying a bulletproof vest, to that rugged, remote spot as he fled another shooting 100 miles away.
Earlier shooting The King County Sheriff’s Office was trying to pin down details about a shooting Barnes was involved in at a party in Skyway, south of Seattle. Witnesses told investigators that about nine people attended the party, many of them armed, and some had a “show and tell” with their guns. Some fired shots in the air to celebrate the new year. At 3 a.m. Sunday, one
knocked on the door of an acquaintance named Rachel Austin, in the Tacoma suburb of Fife. Austin told a Seattle television station that when her husband answered the door, Barnes said he wanted to wish her a happy new year, then left. About two hours later, Barnes blew through a checkpoint that Mount Rainier rangers use to determine whether vehicles are equipped with tire chains for winter driving. One ranger pursued him, while Anderson set up Benjamin Colton Barnes a roadblock up the road.
partygoer asked to see another’s gun and then refused to give it back. At least two people drew their weapons — Barnes was one of them — and four people were injured in the shootout, two of them critically, the Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday. It wasn’t clear who fired first. Barnes fled, along with two other people, investigators said. About five hours later, he
Shot in her car She didn’t have a chance to get out of her car before she was shot. An autopsy showed Anderson died of gunshot wounds to the head and torso, according to the medical examiner’s office. The ranger who had pursued him was not injured, but a photo of his vehicle released by authorities showed four bullet holes in the windshield. Barnes headed into the woods, where he waded
through chest-deep snow, though ill-equipped for the cold. Investigators in planes, equipped with thermal imaging technology, and on snowshoes pursued him. Barnes’ body was found Monday morning, clothed in a T-shirt, a pair of jeans and one tennis shoe; it wasn’t clear if he had removed some clothing, as hypothermia victims sometimes do. Investigators found several other weapons and body armor in his car. The family of Barnes extended condolences and asked for privacy in a statement published Wednesday by The Seattle Times. “Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families as well during this difficult time,” the statement said. “We are as shocked as anyone concerning the events of the last few days and while we in no way condone or excuse Ben’s behavior, he was a beloved member of our family and we are saddened by his loss.” According to police and
court documents, Barnes had a troubled transition to civilian life, with his former girlfriend, Nicole Santos, saying in a custody dispute over their baby daughter that he suffered from posttraumatic stress disorder and was suicidal. Santos did not return an email from The Associated Press on Tuesday. Santos alleged that Barnes was easily irritated, angry and depressed, and that he had an arsenal of weapons. She wrote that she feared for their daughter’s safety. Undated photos provided by police showed a shirtless, tattooed Barnes brandishing two guns. The Army said he joined in 2007, listing Temecula, Calif., as his hometown. He served in Iraq from November 2007 to June 2008 and received a lessthan-honorable discharge in 2009 for a drunken-driving arrest and for improperly transporting a privately owned weapon.
murder in the shooting of another rapper at a hotel after a Spokane concert. John “Lil Danger” Castro pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder and assault charges in the Nov. 27 shooting that killed 21-year-old Jose A. “Junior” Solis, 21, of Moses Lake.
Police said Solis was hosting an after-concert party when a friend got into an argument with another group. The Spokesman-Review reported the 27-year-old Castro remains in jail on $1 million bond. The Associated Press
Briefly: State Water main break cuts service SEATTLE — Seattle Public Utilities crews are repairing a 20-inch water line that broke early Wednesday, cutting service to a 200-square block area of south Seattle.
Spokesman Andy Ryan said the break flooded a block of South Juneau Street, and water was running down Martin Luther King Jr. Way. The utility said homes and businesses will likely notice discolored water when service resumes.

Death and Memorial Notice TERESA RENELL ‘TESSY LOU’ ACOSTA August 25, 1971 December 22, 2011 Teresa was born to parents Stephen L. and Marcie C. (Fendler) Minker on August 25, 1971, in Port Angeles. She passed on into her new life on December 22, 2011. She grew up in Port Angeles, Seattle and Idaho, but always returned to where her heart belonged — Port Angeles, where she had many friends and family. Most of her friends called her Tessy Lou. Her grandmother named her Greaser, which also stuck with her. Teresa married several times. She married Breck Curren — they had a daughter. She had two more daughters with her second husband, Brian Mackey. All three girls look just like their beautiful mother. She then married her third husband, John Acosta, and adopted his daughter. The marriage ended in divorce. She lived her life with humor, always making people smile. Teresa worked at Mickey’s Card Casino for approximately seven years, and her dream was to open her own casino. You could always find her at the beach combing
Ms. Acosta for rocks, sea glass and driftwood — anything she could turn into art. Her art will be cherished forever. She started drawing at an early age and became a skilled artist. Teresa always found it in her heart to help others. She took care of the sick, even when she was sick. She loved to dance and sing, and loved Halloween. Teresa is survived by her three daughters, Stephanie and spouse Aaron McMahan and their children Jermaine, Xylis and Azaisha; daughter Rhiannon and fiancee Chris and her daughter Sweet Pea Sara; and daughter Samantha and her children Valerie and Kolby Charles; father Steven L. Minker and wife Denise of Meza, Arizona; mother Marcie C. Fendler of Port Angeles; brothers Michael Minker and wife Regina of Lynnwood,
Washington, Otis Milam and wife Rhoda of Kent, Washington, Josh Milam and wife Melquana of Mesa, Arizona; grandmothers Ramona Amundson of Port Angeles and Vera Butcher of Renton, Washington; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. Preceding her in death are her grandparents, Carl Amundson, Mary and Wayne Brown; and stepfather John Fendler, whom she loved all of very much. Teresa will always be remembered for her beauty and compassionate heart, for her laughter and beautiful smile, and the love she gave to all. May the path you are on now never cause you any heartache and pain. May you rest in peace, dear daughter, granddaughter, niece, sister, mother, grandmother and friend. For no one or no thing can cause you pain ever again. From your surviving family — we love you and you are missed. A private family memorial has already been held. A celebration of her life will be held at the Moose Lodge, 809 South Pine Street, Port Angeles, on January 15, 2011, at 1 p.m. Donations are welcome to any organization of your choice in her name.
Police are investigating.

Death and Memorial Notice GONE FISHING
G.K. ‘SANDY’ SANDQUIST April 3, 1920 December 29, 2011 Sandy was born to parents John and Edith Sandquist in St. Paul, Minnesota. Sandy served in World War II as a medic and survived the Battle of the Bulge. He returned from the war and was the first male nurse to graduate from the Mayo Clinic Nurse Anesthetist Program in Rochester, Minnesota. Sandy married Lida Johnson in 1947. They raised five children in
Pasco before moving to Port Townsend so that Sandy could practice anesthesia in the winter and commercial fish in the summer. Luckily, he had a very understanding partner! Sandy loved fishing, shrimping, crabbing and growing lilies. His many colleagues at Jefferson General Hospital speak of the sense of relief and security they felt whenever Sandy showed up at the scene in tense or emergency situations. He introduced himself as “Sandy the Sandman” to young patients and allayed the fear and anxiety of all facing surgery with his calm demeanor and wide smile.
Sandy left this life due to complications from pneumonia and was surrounded by his family and many of his friends who remember him with love, laughter and respect. He is survived by his wife of 65 years, Lida; daughter Linda Lamb (Fritz); sons Rick, Keven (Tammy) and Dale; five grandchildren; four greatgrandchildren; and many in his family of friends. A memorial service is scheduled for April 14, 2012, in Port Townsend. Sandy said 2011 was the best crabbing he’d ever seen in Port Townsend Bay. It was time to pull his pots for the last time.

You don’t get smart with video games A FRIEND OF mine hands me what looks like a business card. It says: “Don’t Die Stupid.” As America begins another Cal round of voting Thomas to select the next president, or retain the current one, what we need is a stupid test. Flunk it, and you shouldn’t vote. Evidence of the dumbingdown of America is everywhere. Some of it is chronicled in a new book, Blue Collar Intellectuals: When the Enlightened and the Everyman Elevated America by Daniel J. Flynn. Flynn contends popular culture has divorced itself from the life of the mind. He has plenty of examples . . . in case television, texting, video games and improper use of English (“she was like and then I
was like”) are not enough. Flynn calls the digital age that has sped up the process by which we receive information “Idiotville,” because it has made us less intelligent. “Stupid is the new smart,” writes Flynn. He says we arrived at this lower level of brain activity because as recently as the last century “the everyman aspired to high culture and . . . intellectuals descended from the ivory tower to speak to the everyman.” Today, he says, “those who pursue the life of the mind have insulated themselves from popular culture. Speaking in insider jargon and writing unread books, intellectuals have locked themselves away in a ghetto of their own creation.” That has left the nonintellectual class to fend for itself. One library in Portland, Me., rather than leading, is being led by the unformed teenage mind. “Video gaming is just a new form of literacy,” says the “teen librarian.” If so, what’s the new form of
illiteracy, ignorance about how to use a joystick? Flynn quotes from Steven Johnson’s book, Everything Bad is Good for You: How Today’s Popular Culture is Actually Making Us Smarter. Sure, and sugar makes us slimmer. Johnson says, “Reality shows . . . challenge our emotional intelligence.” Emotional intelligence? In an age when feelings trump everything and too many reality TV programs feature wellheeled housewives and lovestarved bachelors, “emotional intelligence” is a contradiction. “A mind is a terrible thing to waste” is the slogan of the United Negro College Fund. It certainly is. Here’s a potent example of what Flynn means when he writes about the destruction of our minds: “At the tony Cushing Academy in western Massachusetts, $40,000 in tuition doesn’t even get you a library anymore. “‘When I look at books, I see
Peninsula Voices Questions What happens in a community when the drug dealers live next door? What happens to our daughters when they get hooked on a supply? Do we turn our backs and say they have got to want to clean up? Do we say they have made their own decisions and must get clear-headed enough to want change? Do we question the perpetrators who hold them as trophies, justifying their gratifications for another’s enslavement? Do we allow those in our community to exchange sex for money, buying our daughters’ virtue, holding them captive? Does a man on the hill get off the hook by saying,
“any man would,” while our daughters are held in the chains of addiction and shame? Who will blow the whistle? Who will say it is not acceptable to sacrifice a beautiful life for a life defiled, traded and trampled? Who is the nice guy down the street? A round of drinks on the house, be mute!

Weapons in parks The murder of a park ranger and mother of two children is a tragedy. For Bill Wade of the Coalition of National Park Service Retirees to say that this could have been
an outdated technology, like scrolls before books,’ the prep school’s headmaster notes, adding, ‘This isn’t Fahrenheit 451.’ “It is, and 1984, too,” comments Flynn. “In place of the 20,000 discarded books, the school spent $500,000 on an Orwellian ‘learning center’ complete with three giant flat-screen televisions and a cappuccino machine. “School officials guessed that only a few dozen books had been checked out at any one time.” The solution? Get rid of the books. Don’t get kids interested in books when they’d rather play “World of Warcraft,” or if younger, watch cartoons, which can’t be that different from The Canterbury Tales, right? Our intellectual depth increasingly resembles floor wax: shiny on top but lacking depth. A muscle atrophies if it is not used. Similarly, a mind becomes lazy if it is not well-fed. And a weak mind dumbsdown our politics. We elect people we come to dislike because too many of us
require no more of them than we require of ourselves. We then wonder why little seems to work and the country soon suffers. In Iowa this week, followed by New Hampshire, South Carolina and Florida, Republican voters began the process of selecting a presidential nominee. It’s not that sufficient information about the problems confronting us — along with solutions that actually work — are not available. It’s just that we’re not reading much about them. Like, ya know, man, that’s just the way it is. Like, ya know what I’m sayin’?

prevented if Congress had not made it legal to take firearms into national parks is ludicrous [PDN, Jan. 3]. I am pretty sure that the murderer, who had already shot four people and was escaping into the park, would not have been deterred from entering if there was a law preventing firearms. I guess Mr. Wade thinks that he would have seen a sign at the entrance and either gotten rid of his weapons or would have turned around and not entered. There are plenty of things that we can hold Congress accountable for, but this is not one of them. Steven Miller, Sequim
Secret money behind 2012 campaigns THE REPUBLICAN CAUCUSES in Iowa, with its cliffhanger ending, confirmed two key political points and left a third virtually ignored. First, the Republicans Amy are not enthuGoodman siastic about any of their candidates. Second, we have entered a new era in political campaigning in the United States post-Citizens United, the U.S. Supreme Court decision that unleashed a torrent of unreported corporate money into our electoral process. And third, because President Barack Obama is running in this primary season unchallenged, scant attention has been paid to the growing discontent among the very people who put him in office in 2008. As a result, the 2012 presidential election promises to be long, contentious, extremely expensive and perhaps more negative than any in history. Mitt Romney technically prevailed in the Iowa caucuses, squeaking out an 8-vote margin
over late-surging Rick Santorum. Libertarian Ron Paul garnered an impressive 21 percent of the vote in the crowded field. Note that the Republican Party does not allow a recount of the handwritten, hand-counted ballots, and that the final Romney edge was first reported on right-wing Fox News Channel by none other than paid commentator Karl Rove, the architect of George W. Bush’s two controversial presidential election wins. So, the prevailing wisdom is that while Willard Mitt Romney retains the veneer of “electability,” he cannot persuade more than 25 percent of Republicans to vote for him. Santorum’s surge was a latebreaking coalescence of the antiRomney vote, boosted by massive voter flight from Newt Gingrich that was inspired by a withering campaign of anti-Gingrich attack ads attributed to Romney. While Romney’s Iowa operation maintained a positive campaign strategy, a super PAC that supported him went on the offensive. Restore Our Future, according to NBC’s Michael Isikoff, spent $2.8 million in ads in Iowa, more than twice the amount spent by

the Romney campaign itself, all attacking Gingrich. The super PAC is not limited in how much corporate or individual money it can take in, and does not have to disclose the identity of its donors. While super PACs are prevented by law from coordinating with campaigns, three of the founders of the pro-Romney Restore Our Future were campaign staffers on Romney’s failed 2008 presidential bid — Carl Forti, Charlie Spies and Larry McCarthy. The Iowa caucuses can be seen as the first instance in a presidential electoral race waged after the January 2010 U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission ruling. As summarized by the SCOTUSblog, the split court decided that “political spending is a form of protected speech under the First Amendment, and the government may not keep corporations or unions from spending money to support or denounce individual candidates in elections.” Election seasons are usually a boon for local TV stations, which sell airtime over the public airwaves. Iowa broadcasters were
reporting a less-than-projected windfall, however, due to the record number of candidate debates in which the candidates got to present themselves to the public, in essence, “for free.” The last-minute onslaught of negative ads brought station revenues back up. Dale Woods, general manager of WHO-TV in Des Moines, told Broadcasting & Cable magazine: “It’s normally never negative here, but that’s one dynamic I’ve seen change with the PAC money involved. The candidate buys are positive, but the PAC money is negative. “I think that’s a dynamic you’ll see all over the country.” The advertising industry is watching campaign spending closely, predicting up to $4 billion in spending across all the campaigns, including those for president, Senate, House and governorships. But there’s hope. People are fighting back against this flood of secret money infecting U.S. elections. State legislators in California are calling for a constitutional amendment overturning Citizens United. The New York City Council is voting on a similar measure, following Los Angeles, Oakland,
Calif., Albany, N.Y., and Boulder, Colo. Last week, Montana’s Supreme Court restored a 100-year-old ban on corporate spending directed at political campaigns or candidates. Harvard law professor Lawrence Lessig is calling for a constitutional convention. As defined in the U.S. Constitution, 34 state legislatures would need to call for a convention, which could allow an amendment banning corporate money from elections. Lessig, a favorite of progressives, is recruiting the right-wing tea party to help. He told me: “People can call for a convention for any purpose . . . the only option we have for intervening to fix this corrupted system is the only option the framers gave us, which is outsiders organizing to fix the problem in Washington.”

Out of the sun, into the drizzle EXCUSE ME IF I sound a little less grumpy than normal. I’m still trying to shed all of Matt those 70 degree days I was forced Schubert to endure down in Phoenix, Ariz., during the holidays. Mountain hikes and day long bike rides through the Valley of the Sun left me a little on the dry side. Now awash in the familiar liquid sunshine of the Pacific Northwest, it’s only a matter of time before I’m back to my more typically truculent temperament. North Olympic Peninsula winters are about shared misery, after all. Who am I to not partake? On that note, here’s a couple of outdoor items:
Ridge news Don’t expect any operational rope tows atop Hurricane Ridge this weekend. Hurricane Ridge Winter Sports Club President Lori Lynn Gray said she doesn’t expect organized ski activities to start up this week, and it remains to be seen if things will be up and running next week either. It’s also beginning to look like the scheduled ski school opener, set for Jan. 14-15, will have to be postponed a week as well. Mountain manager Craig Hofer and his crew have been unable to get on the Ridge to throw together the intermediate rope tow because of a lack of snow. Fresh powder has fallen on the mountain in recent days. It just hasn’t gathered enough in certain spots for Olympic National Park to allow Hofer on the intermediate hill. “It’s definitely not happening this week,” Gray said. “We’re going to shoot for an opening next weekend. “We’re ready to go except for the intermediate rope.” For more information on ski activities on the Ridge, visit hurricaneridge.com.
PSA fundraiser The kids demand their fish, and the Puget Sound Anglers-North Olympic Peninsula Chapter delivers each year with its Olympic Peninsula Kids Fishing Program. In order to make that happen, the group will hold its annual fundraising auction and dinner Thursday, Jan. 19, in Sequim. The proceeds from the auction provide most of the funding for the kids fishing program at the Sequim water reclamation pond. The auction/dinner is set to begin at 5 p.m. inside the Guy Cole Convention Center at Carrie Blake Park. A spaghetti dinner will be served starting at 5:30 p.m. There is no fee for the dinner, although donations will be accepted. (Those who choose not to donate must accept the title of cheapskate.) There will be live and silent auctions, with the former being held following dinner. Live auction items include fishing trips with Peninsula river guides for salmon and steelhead, and charter boat trips for salmon, halibut and bottomfish out on the ocean and Strait of Juan de Fuca. Club members will also be offering saltwater trips departing out of Port Angeles, Sequim or Sekiu for salmon or halibut. The 11th annual Kids Fishing Day will be held Saturday, May 19, at the reclamation pond. The pond is stocked with 1,500 trout, some of which weigh as much as five pounds. For more information on the events, contact Herb Prins at 360582-0836.

Chimacum’s Derek Ajax (22) sets a pick as teammate Quinn Eldridge (3) dribbles around a Seattle Christian defender during a Class 1A Nisqually League game played in Chimacum on Tuesday.
Too little, too late Chimacum falls short in Nisqually matchup BY MATT SCHUBERT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
CHIMACUM — The secret is out on the Chimacum boys basketball team. The undersized, athletic Cowboys like to run, and they like to fire away from deep. In Tuesday night’s Nisqually League showdown with Seattle Christian, they couldn’t do enough of either. Seattle Christian handed Chimacum its first league loss of the season, withstanding a torrid second-half shooting display from Quinn Eldridge for a 57-49 victory. The Chimacum senior scored 17 of his team-high 22 points in the final two frames, but it wasn’t enough to rally the Cowboys
back from a 16-point halftime hole. “Our goal was to play a little higher than we normally do [on defense] and defend the 3, defend their shooters,” Seattle Christian coach Shaun DeYager said. “We were really asking them to try to take it inside.” Chimacum (3-1 in league, 8-2 overall) had vaulted to the top of the Nisqually League standings due to the strength of its outside shooting. On Tuesday night, Seattle Christian (3-0, 8-2) countered that by using its size and length to aggressively defend the perimeter and slow down the Cowboys’ athletic guards. Extending their zone defense out past the 3-point line, the
Warriors stayed close to the Cowboys’ shooters. They also forced the Cowboys to walk the ball up the court against a full-court press. The result was a tepid first half that saw Chimacum score just 20 points while shooting 6 of 20 from the field. “That’s what [teams] are going to do,” Chimacum coach Jim Eldridge said. “It’s something that we are going to have to figure out. We need some points out of the paint.” Six-foot-4 Seattle Christian post Chaise DeVries controlled the paint while guards Cody Miller (6-3) and Richard Jensen (6-1) attacked from the wings. DeVries nearly had a doubledouble by halftime and finished with 13 points, 13 rebounds (seven offensive), three assists and one block. Miller scored 15 points and Jensen netted a game-high 25 points, including a pull-up 3 at the halftime buzzer that put the Warriors ahead 36-20.
Forks still on top Defense keys league win for Spartans
“They set the tempo of the whole game with their press,” said coach Eldridge, whose team’s next league game is Jan. 10 at Life Christian. “We’ve got to be able to break that press better and set our tempo. We want to push the ball up a little better, break that press and get some baskets off the press.” “That’s the bottom line, we got to play our tempo.” The Cowboys were finally able to get out and run early in the third quarter thanks to their own aggressive defense. Guard Landon Cray scored back-to-back buckets off fastbreaks two minutes into the half, then Rafael Pagasian came up with a steal and dished to Eldridge for a transition 3 that put the score at 38-31.

Free agent questions on horizon BY TIM BOOTH THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

FORKS — The Forks boys basketball team maintained its grip on first place in the SWLEvergreen Division with another strong defensive performance Tuesday night. Brady Castellano scored 16 points and pulled down 12 rebounds to spark the Spartans to a 45-33 victory over Montesano. Forks improved to 4-0 in league and 8-2 overall while Montesano fell to 1-3 and 7-3. Braden Decker added 12 points to go with Castellano’s double-double, but it was defense that won this one for Forks. “Defense is keeping us in the games,” Forks coach Scott Justus said. The Spartans shot only 36 percent from the floor but it’s much better than the last two games where they shot 31 and 28 percent. “We put up 52 shots,” Justus said. “Our goal is 60 shots, but I will take 52.” The Spartans had scoring problems early because Montesano plays physical, Justus said.

Forks’ Shaquille Cress makes a pass into the lane around Montesano’s Matthew Jensen (44) during Tuesday night’s SWL-Evergreen Division game in Forks. Forks held Montesano’s leading scorer, Joe Benedict, to two points in the game. Benedict averages almost 18 points a game but was held to two points by the trio of Decker, Castellano and Cameron Leons in Forks’ matchup zone defense, Justus said.
All-State football star Evan Truax led Montesano with 11 points. First place in the SWL-Evergreen will be on the line when Forks travels to Elma (4-0, 5-5) on Friday night. TURN
RENTON — Just as Marshawn Lynch became the Skittles-loving face of the Seattle Seahawks, he could just as quickly be leaving town. Or he could remain part of the foundation that led to the Seahawks’ turnaround in the second half of the season. Lynch tops the list of 18 unrestricted free agents that the Seahawks must make decisions on this offseason. The list features seven starters from Seattle’s season finale last Sunday in Arizona, plus a few former starters who missed all or parts of the season with injuries. “Our first concern is to take care of our team and take care of the guys that are unrestricted on our football team and fit that back together,” coach Pete Carroll said. It starts with Lynch. Coming off the finest season of his career, Lynch is at the peak of his NFL financial prospects. He’s 25, has just rushed for 1,204 yards and 12 touchdowns and embodies the attitude Carroll wants the rest of his roster to emulate. TURN

Cowboys: Girls fall to Warriors Hawks: Deals CONTINUED FROM B1 After a Seattle Christian basket, Eldridge drained another 3 to bring the Cowboys within 40-34. The 6-foot guard went on to hit 4 of 5 3-point attempts in the second half. His last bomb brought the Cowboys within four points at 48-44 with 4:40 left in the fourth quarter. Eldridge sank two free throws a minute later to close the gap at 48-46. Miller immediately responded with his third 3 of the game on the other end, however. Jensen sank a reverse layup on the Warriors’ next possession, and the Cowboys got no closer the rest of the way. “We weren’t playing our game [in the first half]. We were kind of letting them dictate the pace,” Quinn Eldridge said. “We played good in the second half, we just started off slow. If we started off like we did in the second half, it would have been a different game.” Eldridge finished 5 of 9 from 3-point range on the game and a perfect 7 of 7 from the free throw line. The rest of the Cowboys struggled, however, with the team finishing 6 of 27 from distance and 16 of 50 from the field overall.
The normally explosive Cray was limited to just eight points and two assists while failing to sink any of his 10 3-point attempts. Pagasian, who has also been a consistent force in the Cowboys’ three-guard lineup, had trouble penetrating against the Warrior zone as well. He had nine points and one assist. Despite the size disadvantage, the Cowboys were even on the boards with both teams grabbing 30 rebounds. Riley Downs led Chimacum with six rebounds, and Lucas Dukek had five. The Warriors came up with two big blocks. That included an above-the-rim swat from Miller on a Cray fastbreak layup attempt late in the fourth quarter. The athletic play quelled whatever hope was left of a late Cowboys comeback. “In the third quarter, Chimacum definitely won the effort war there, diving on the floor and out-hustling us on rebounds,” DeYager said. “About that time where we needed to step it up, we changed it back.” Seattle Christian 57, Chimacum 49 Seattle Christian 18 18 8 13— 57 Chimacum 8 12 16 13— 49 Individual scoring Seattle Christian (57) Jensen 25, Miller 15, Pierotti 2, Abe 2, DeVries 13.

Girls Basketball Seattle Chr. 50, Chimacum 36 CHIMACUM — The Cowboys controlled the first quarter of Tuesday night’s Nisqually League tilt. The rest belonged to the Warriors. Chimacum hit 4 of its first 5 field goal attempts and took a 10-5 lead after one frame before going ice cold against the first-place Warriors. “We’re a feast or famine team,” Chimacum coach Brad Burlingame said. Unfortunately for the Cowboys (2-2, 3-7), it was nearly all famine following the strong first-quarter start. That included a scoreless seven-minute stretch to begin the second quarter that saw the Cowboys turn the ball over eight times against the Warriors pressure defense. Cydney Nelson scored a team-high 13 points and grabbed six rebounds to lead the Cowboys, and Lauren Thacker added 12 points, four rebounds and two assists. But there was little additional offense from a Chimacum team that shot 15 of 43 from the field, 5 of 14 from the free throw line and gave the ball away 24 times. “If they can just push
your guards out to half court it doesn’t really matter what your offense is,” Burlingame said. “It’s going to fall short.” Seattle Christian (3-0, 5-6) has been forced to play its season without 6-foot-3 UW recruit Katie Collier, who is undergoing treatment for leukemia. The Warriors still looked plenty strong Tuesday, with the team dishing out 19 assists while out-rebounding Chimacum 34-26. Sophomore guard Alyssa Kaler scored 14 points and had three assists, while Catie Shelton had 12 points, seven rebounds and five assists. The Warriors outscored Chimacum 31-14 between the second and third quarters as they turned a fivepoint deficit into a 36-24 lead going into the fourth. The Cowboys didn’t get closer than 13 points the remainder of the game. “We’re still on track, everything is good,” Burlingame said. “It’s just against these really good teams . . . it’s just a big practice.” Seattle Christian 50, Chimacum 36 Seattle Christian 5 14 17 14— 50 Chimacum 10 6 8 12— 36 Individual scoring Seattle Christian (50) Johnson 13, Kaler 14, Shelton 12, Gleason 7, Terhune 2, Weber 2. Chimacum (36) Nelson 13, Thacker 12, Johnson 6, King 3, Hathaway 2.
CONTINUED FROM B1 Lynch also showed a maturity this season that might have been absent in the past. When Seattle was struggling at midseason and Lynch had rushed for more than 80 yards just once, Lynch sat down with assistant head coach Tom Cable to ask how he could become more productive. The result was six 100yard games over the final nine weeks. “He was more than willing to say, ‘Teach me, I’ll do it the way you need it and don’t let me off the hook if I don’t do it right,’” Cable said. Not far behind on Seattle’s priority list is locking up Bryant. Before Carroll took over in 2009, Bryant appeared to be on his way out of the NFL, unable to find his way as a defensive tackle. But Carroll and defensive coordinator Gus Bradley shifted Bryant to defensive end and he’s become the anchor of a Seattle defensive line that’s been successful each of the past two seasons at stopping the run with Bryant starting. Bryant said earlier this week that he doesn’t have the desire to see what he could get in free agency.
His loyalty to the Seahawks goes beyond finding a role where he could thrive; he’s the sonin-law of former Seahawks defensive end great Jacob Green. “I’d be lying to say that the Seahawks haven’t been extremely good to me. They gave me the opportunity to play a position that at first I thought they were trying to cut me when they first talked about moving me to defensive end,” Bryant said. There are other players on the next tier who are just as important for the Seahawks. Fullback Michael Robinson was a first alternate to the Pro Bowl and the one Lynch gave plenty of credit to for his breakout season. Along the offensive line, Seattle learned the value of backups Breno Giacomini and Paul McQuistan this season as each filled in admirably after starters James Carpenter, John Moffitt and Russell Okung were lost for the season because of injuries. Giacomini made $600,000 this season, and McQuistan $685,000. Defensively, Seattle’s biggest issue aside from Bryant is at linebacker, where starters David Hawthorne and Leroy Hill are both free agents.

Fun ’n’ Advice
PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
DEAR ABBY: I was sure “Emotionally Abused in California’s” letter was inspirational but fictional. The 15-year-old writer felt her mother was unreasonable because of the rules Mom enforced and the chores the teen was required to do. Then I started rereading my high school diary. There were many parallels between this girl’s complaints and my own as a teen. My mom also didn’t let me go to parties if she didn’t know the parents and confirm they’d be home; my curfew was 11:30 p.m. on weekends because Mom couldn’t sleep until I was in for the night. She always offered to host Friday pizza-and-movie night at our home to ensure my friends and I had a safe place to hang out. Like “Emotionally Abused,” I also resented my lack of freedom, but because of her efforts, I never had run-ins with the law, never got an STD or became pregnant, and I didn’t try drugs or alcohol. When I expressed my frustration, Mom would say, “When you’re a parent, you’ll understand.” Now that I have two small children, I do understand. I hit the Mom jackpot! I’m grateful for her guidance, love and the boundaries she set for me. I’ll be sending her that column and a copy of this letter to you as a thank-you for making decisions that kept me grounded and safe. Won the Jackpot in Michigan

DEAR ABBY Abigail Van Buren
Dear Abby: It’s about time parents raise their children appropriately. I grew up with much less than “Emotionally Abused” but with more rules and restrictions. My mom divorced my physically abusive father when I was 3. There was no alimony or child support. Mom did it all on her own. She even went back to school to get a college degree. Parents are not meant to be their children’s BFF. They are responsible for raising their children with morals and social values. Welcome to the real world. Jackson, Wis., Reader Dear Readers: To read a longer version of this column, visit DearAbby.com.
Dear Abby: It’s refreshing to know there are still parents who actually care about how they raise their children. Bringing a child into this world is a tremendous responsibility. It requires years of 24/7 vigilance, teaching and love to produce a moral, by Mell Lazarus

loving and productive pillar of our society. Some parents today do not take their responsibility seriously. How we raise our children will directly affect how we function as a society in the future. Concerned Dad in Las Vegas
Dear Abby: I am a teacher of many spoiled, lazy, irresponsible and incompetent students. If all parents were as dedicated in rearing their children as this teen’s mother, my job would be wonderful. She has the necessary parenting skills to mold her child into a responsible, productive and mature adult. She’s an awesome woman! Teacher in Nashville, Ga.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Vibration comes and goes Dear Doctor: I own a 2005 Honda Civic. I’ve been experiencing an intermittent vibration that comes up from the gas pedal through the steering wheel that only occurs at 40 to 45 mph. When I take my foot off the gas or accelerate above 45 mph, the vibration stops. What’s causing this problem and how do I fix it? Tee Dear Tee: I get a lot of these complaints from owners of front-wheel-drive vehicles. The most common problem is a worn inner C/V joint. Unlike a faulty outer C/V joint that emits a clicking sound when turning, the inner C/V joint gives a vibration under acceleration. Have your technician remove both front axles and take apart the inner joints for inspection. A good quality aftermarket — rebuilt or new — replacement axle costs $95 to $130, plus installation at $125 per side on average.
Battery good? Dear Doctor: I own a 1995 BMW 318ic convertible. I recently had a deadstarting issue in which a

thing? Jack Dear Jack: The car owner should not pay for any repair that does not correct the problem unless there were multiple part failures. Just because there’s a fault code for a circuit or part does not mean the part is bad. The mechanic who worked on the car can send the parts in question back to the supplier; it happens often in the automotive business. The owner should take the car to a shop with an ASE-certified technician who uses information systems companies, such as Alldata and Identifix. Without either of these professional companies, we technicians cannot make the repair. We need the information and the diagnostic paths to check the faults in vehicles to make the correct repairs.
