were interviewed. A proposal from developer Doug Lamy, who built the adjacent Swan Hotel, was rejected because Lamy did not appear to have funding for the project. Lamy proposed a mixed-use structure with a restaurant and offices but wasn’t called back “because he was saying that we should approve them and then they would find the money,” according to Deputy Port Direc-

Getting a good educational foundation Morgan silver dollars minted in China like these have reportedly shown up on the North Olympic Peninsula.

These classics are fake Bogus coins from China appear on North Peninsula Charlie Bermant/Peninsula Daily News

By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Authorities are warning businesses and individuals who want to buy and collect old coins to be on the lookout for counterfeit U.S. coins. On Feb. 3, a Port Angeles business paid a person about $20 each for more than 20 counterfeit U.S. Morgan silver dollars that were supposedly from a century ago. Port Angeles police would not identify the business or provide more details because of the ongoing investigation. Police Officer Duane Benedict said “it’s absolutely amazing” how easy it is to buy similar coins on the Internet. “China is making these things by the thousands,” Benedict said. “We want to make sure that the public is aware that these things are available on the Internet.” Several of the fake coins that were sold to the Port Angeles business would have been worth more than $1,500 had they been real, Benedict said.

School backers look past levy Education foundation sets Saturday auction By Charlie Bermant Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — Despite passage of a four-year replacement property tax levy, more money is needed to provide essential classroom tools, said Port Townsend Education Foundation members Wednesday. The levy, which was approved by 66.6 percent in the first count of ballots

Tuesday, will collect $3.1 million its first year in 2012 and about 4 percent more each year to $3.4 million in 2015. “There is still a significant gap between what the state provides for education and what the kids need,” said Lynn LeMaster, a founding member of the group that supports the Port Townsend School District. “This gap has widened, and there are a lot of things that kids need that we can provide.” The major fundraiser for the foundation, which operates on donations, will be Saturday at the Northwest Maritime Center, 431 Water St.

The art auction/fundraiser will be from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. LeMaster said the items offered for auction had to pass a jury selection process, and items include hand-crafted instruments, jewelry, furniture, painting and sculpture. Tickets are $35. The fundraiser is intended to have multiple benefits: to provide direct support for classroom teachers and students in the Port Townsend public schools and to give exposure and support to local artists within the context of a fun event.

2nd Sequim lavender fest to be based at park By Jeff Chew

Peninsula Daily News

SEQUIM — The newly formed Sequim Lavender Farmers Association will base its July fair at Carrie Blake Park and the James Center for the Performing Arts, christening it “Lavender in the Park.” “We’re really excited to connect the park with the farms,” said Executive Director Scott Nagel,

who is wrapping up a week of talks on Sequim lavender agritourism at the Australian Lavender Growers Association 16th annual International Conference in Launceston, Tasmania. While Carrie Blake Park’s parking lot will be the central hub for tour buses for the farm tours, Nagel said, Guy Cole Community Center’s space would be used for management and other needs during the July 15-17 event.

The original lavender festival organization, Sequim Lavender Growers Association, will operate its street fair on Fir Street separately near downtown — and won’t have guided farm tours. Those were overseen by Nagel, who recently left the growers association to join the farmers association. The farmers association broke away from the original association last month, citing philosophi-

cal and administrative differences with that association and its board president, Terry Stolz. “Officially, we wish them luck,” Stolz said Wednesday after learning about the new festival venue. Stolz’s group is about to announce its new director to succeed Nagel, he said, which would be part of what he called “Team Lavender,” to run the growers association’s event. Stolz said the growers associa-

tion still has a contract with the city to use Fir Street from Second Avenue to North Sequim Avenue. “We’ve got 150 spaces on the street,” he said of the festival marketplace that has been there 15 years. Stolz said his only concern was that signage might cause confusion, but other than that, he believes the lavender show will go on. Turn

Mr. Jacques was a milk delivery man when he wrote the first Redwall story for children at the Royal Wavertree School for the Blind in Liverpool, one of the stops on his route. The book’s hero was a timid mouse named Matthias who found the courage to protect his home, Redwall Abbey. The first of 21 Redwall books appeared in 1986. He said he chose animals as his characters because they were more popular with his target audience, kids ages 9 to 15. His inspirations included the books he read as a child, such as the Iliad and the Odyssey.

Strokes among young rising at faster pace Study links obesity-caused cardiovascular ills to increase By Marilynn Marchione The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Strokes are rising dramatically among young and middle-aged Americans while dropping in older people, a sign that the obesity epidemic may be starting to shift the age burden of the disease. The numbers, reported Wednesday at an American Stroke Association conference, come from the first large nationwide study of stroke hospitalizations by age. Government researchers compared hospitalizations in 1994 and 1995 with ones in 2006 and 2007. The sharpest increase — 51 percent — was among men 15 through 34. Strokes rose among women in this age group, too, but not as fast — 17 percent. “It’s definitely alarming,” said Dr. Ralph Sacco, American Heart Association president and a neurologist at the University of Miami. “We have worried for a while that the increased prevalence of

obesity in children and young adults may take its toll in cardiovascular disease and stroke,” and that appears to be happening, he said. Stroke still takes its highest toll on older people. For those over 65, there were nearly 300 stroke cases among 10,000 hospitalizations in the more recent period studied. For males 15 to 34, there were about 15 stroke cases per 10,000, and for girls and women in that age group there were about four per 10,000. Several small studies had recently suggested an ominous rise among the young and among middle-aged women. “We were interested in whether we could pick that up in a much larger, nationwide dataset,” said Dr. Mary George, a stroke researcher at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The researchers examined federal records from a sample of hospitals in 41 states, covering about 8 million cases each year. They looked at the percentage

of all hospitalizations for stroke by gender and in six age groups. For every 10,000 hospitalizations in 1994-95 compared with 2006-07, strokes rose: ■  51 percent, from 9.8 to 14.8, among males 15 to 34 years old ■  17 percent, from 3.6 to 4.2, in females 15 to 34 ■  47 percent, from 36 to 52.9, in males 35 to 44 ■  36 percent, from 21.9 to 30, in females 35 to 44 “The increases seen in children are very modest, but they are more so in the young adult age groups, and we feel that deserves further study,” George said. Better awareness of stroke symptoms and better imaging methods for detecting strokes in young people could account for some of that change, but there is no way to know, she said. Trends went the opposite way in older people. Strokes dropped 25 percent among men 65 and older (from 404 to 303 per 10,000 hospitalizations), and 28 percent among women in this age group (from 379 to 274). Doctors think better prevention and treatment of risk factors such as high blood pressure in older people may be contributing to the decline.

Briefly: World Italian leader says politics behind sex case MILAN — Scandal-plagued Premier Silvio Berlusconi defiantly accused prosecutors Wednesday of trying to topple his government by seeking to put him on trial on charges he had sex with a 17-year-old girl and then tried to cover it up. The sex scandal has splashed salacious details and allegations of wild parties at Berlusconi’s villas across newspaper Berlusconi front pages for weeks and drawn the ire of the Catholic Church. Though no stranger to legal cases, this is the first judicial action against the three-time premier and media billionaire to impugn his personal conduct, rather than his business dealings. The case raises questions about Berlusconi’s ability to govern effectively under mounting legal pressure, and comes at a time when he has been weakened by a fight with an ex-ally. Prosecutors allege Berlusconi, 74, paid for sex with the Moroccan girl, nicknamed Ruby, who has since turned 18, then used his influence to get her out of police custody when she was detained for the unrelated suspected theft of $4,103. They allege that he feared her relationship to him would be revealed.

Cabinet dissolved ISLAMABAD — Pakistan’s prime minister dissolved his 50-plus member Cabinet on Wednesday to replace it with a smaller group in response to demands for greater financial savings in the economically struggling country. The dissolution of the Cabinet, which included a mass resignation by ministers, is a concession to opposition leaders. The government seeks their support to pass economic reforms insisted upon by international lenders whose billions are keeping Pakistan afloat. Pakistan’s economy relies heavily on loans from the International Monetary Fund and the government has struggled to raise revenues. Chronic power shortages have hampered economic growth and floods last year caused massive damage to infrastructure.

Congress to take up plight of military ‘widows tax’ The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Tens of thousands of the nation’s war widows find it perplexing and downright disrespectful to their late military husbands: In order to fully collect on insurance their husbands bought for them when alive, they must marry another man. And to qualify, the widows must remarry when they are 57 or older. Those who remarry earlier miss out, as do widows who never remarry.

Quick Read

At the heart of the issue is a government policy known as the “widows’ tax.” It says a military spouse whose loved one dies from a service-related cause can’t collect both survivor’s benefits and the full annuity benefits from insurance the couple bought from the Defense Department at retirement. Instead, the amount of the annuity payment is reduced by the amount of the monthly survivor benefit. Time after time, members of Congress have promised to help the 55,000 affected widows, but

laws passed to help them have only created a more complicated system It doesn’t make sense to Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., and 10 other senators who last week filed legislation to help the widows. The Gold Star Wives of America Inc., a congressionally chartered group of military widows, supports legislation backed by the senators and Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C., that would eliminate the offset and not require widows to pay back premiums previously refunded.

After the judge read a long list of charges against him, Ponzo replied: “Not guilty, your honor.”

At least three jurors in Cleveland said the evidence was so thin against a man jailed for weeks in an assault case that they want to give him their juror pay. The jury quickly acquitted 19-yearold Demrick McCloud on Friday. He’d been charged with leading other teens to beat a high school student and threaten him with a gun Oct. 13. McCloud was arrested that day and held in jail until the trial. The three jurors said there was a “sheer lack of evidence,” so they’ll each give McCloud the $100 they were paid for jury service if he earns a high school equivalency degree.

Appeals court reverses rape conviction By Paul Gottlieb

Peninsula Daily News

SEQUIM — The state Court of Appeals took the final step Tuesday in reversing the 2009 conviction of accused rapist Corean O. Barnes. A Clallam County Superior Court jury found the former certified nurse’s assistant of Sequim guilty of two counts of second-degree rape and one count of unlawful imprisonment of a woman who was trying to break up with him — and who had recorded the alleged assaults on a hidden digital audio recorder. Barnes, 28, was sentenced to 119 months — just under 10 years — to life. But Sept. 28, the Court of Appeals ruled in favor of Barnes’ appeal, and Tuesday, the court denied Clallam

County Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Brian Wendt’s motion for reconsideration, remanding the case back to county Superior Court. County Prosecuting Attorney Deb Kelly vowed Wednesday to file by Friday a new complaint against Barnes with identical charges, which would lead to a new trial.

‘Right thing to do’ “It’s the right thing to do,” Kelly said. “This man raped a woman.” In its ruling, three Division II appeals court judges agreed the evidence is “more than clear” that Barnes sexually assaulted the woman twice over several hours Aug. 15, 2008, in Sequim — once when she picked him up in her car and a second time

at a friend’s house. But in throwing out the conviction, the panel agreed that Clallam County Superior Court Judge Ken Williams overstepped the state Privacy Act at Barnes’ trial by allowing as evidence the woman’s approximately fourhour digital recording. The Privacy Act requires the consent of all parties before a private conversation can be recorded and quoted legal precedent that “puts a high value on the privacy of communications.” There is a “threats exception” to the mutual-consent rule that was not followed in the Barnes trial, the court said. The consent of one party to a recorded conversation is allowed for recordings that “convey threats of extortion, blackmail, bodily harm or other unlawful requests or

demands,” according to state law. “Courts strictly construe this exception,” the appeals court said. “A number of recorded remarks that went before the [Barnes] jury did not convey threats, either directly or indirectly, and did not fall under the exceptions to the Privacy Act.” Williams, the appeals court said, “should have conducted a more detailed analysis of the recording before admitting those selected portions that met the threats exception to the Privacy Act.” A 74-page transcript of the recording included sometimes-threatening comments by Barnes toward the woman and her narratives of the incidents when Barnes was not present — when she was waiting for him to get

out of a meeting, according to court documents. A new jury “could easily come back with a not-guilty verdict, partially because of conversations that will be omitted,” Olympia lawyer Jodi Backlund said Wednesday in an interview. Barnes discussed the ruling Wednesday in a telephone interview from Coyote Ridge Corrections Center, a medium-security facility in Connell. “I’m kind of ecstatic,” Barnes said. He and the woman were intimate for about a year before the incident, Barnes said. On the day they discussed splitting up, the woman entrapped him, he said, by hiding the recorder in a purse, though the appeals court said she bought the recorder because “she feared

for her safety” after Barnes threatened to blow up her house and car. Barnes said the recording was the only evidence against him, that the sex was consensual on one rape charge and that regarding the other rape charge, he stopped when she said she wanted him to stop. The woman reported the rapes “several days later,” according to the court’s decision. The 2009 trial was the second for Barnes that year on the charges. A mistrial was declared in the first trial after the county Prosecutor’s Office brought out testimony about a domestic violence batterers’ group meeting Barnes had attended, according to court documents. The court had ruled the testimony about the meeting could not be admitted.

Water conservation plan pitched to Clallam By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Would Clallam County ratepayers pitch in to support a water resource conservation program? They might, a representative from the Washington Water Trust told the three county commissioners Monday. Project Manager Amanda Cronin told county and Clallam County Public Utility District commissioners that nearly 300 central Oregon residents have joined a pilot program that was formed to boost the streamflow of the Deschutes River.

She pitched an idea for Clallam County that is modeled after the Deschutes River program. “We just had some initial discussions about setting up a similar program that would benefit the Dungeness River and maybe even the Elwha,” Cronin said. Washington Water Trust is working under a contract to assist Clallam County develop in-stream river-flow rules, which set standards for allowable cubic feet per second of river to support both irrigation and marine life. “We’re working closely with the irrigators on clarifying and understanding their

water rights,” Cronin said. “We’ve been looking at ways to fund water projects. We have a pretty detailed and broad scope of work under our current contract.”

Teaming up She told commissioners that the Bend, Ore.-based Deschutes River Conservancy has teamed up with Avion Water, a private company, in a voluntary program called Blue Water. Customers who choose to enroll pay between $1.60 and $6.40 per month to support the Deschutes River Conservancy’s efforts to increase Deschutes River flows.

Discussions in Clallam County have been focused on the Dungeness River — Water Resource Inventory Area 18 — “but there’s no reason it couldn’t apply to other watersheds,” Cronin said. “In order to make it work here, we would need to work with one of the water purveyors, whether it’s the [Clallam County Public Utility District] or either city, or ideally all three if they’re interested,” she added. County commissioners took no action on the matter. Commissioner Mike Doherty asked Cronin about the success of Blue Water in the Deschutes basin. Cronin

said the program has raised as much as $16,000 per year. Commissioner Steve Tharinger, who is working simultaneously as a state representative in Olympia, said via speakerphone that if a similar program could raise $7,000 to $10,000 per year, it would translate into “meaningful” water resources for the Dungeness River basin in August and September.

be scheduled. “It’s really a conceptual idea at this point,” Cronin said. PUD spokesman Mike Howe said that PUD commissioners asked for the staff to research the idea. If a similar program were adopted in Clallam County, there would be no cost to the county, its cities or the PUD. “Basically, we just wanted to give you the idea here, put it out on the table, see if anybody has any questions and let you know that we’re exploring it,” Cronin said. “We’ll keep folks posted on how that all comes together.”

Voter turnout over 57% Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — The Jefferson County Auditor’s Office had 983 ballots in-hand but uncounted Wednesday and reported a rise in the voter turnout in the countywide election to more than 57 percent. More ballots may come in before Friday’s noon count, said Auditor Donna Eldridge, but additional votes will not change election outcomes, in which three measures passed overwhelmingly in the first count of ballots from the special election Tuesday. “They could change the numbers, but they are not going to change whether or not any of these measures fails or passes,” Eldridge said.

Businessman known for skills, smile By Paige Dickerson Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Harvey McDonald Gray III — known to those close to him as Don — was a friend to many and a savvy businessman, longtime friends said. G r a y died Feb. 5. He was 83. A memorial service in his honor is planned at 1 p.m. Friday at Holy Gray Trinity Lutheran Church, 301 E. Lopez Ave., Port Angeles. Gray was a longtime businessman who took over the family business, Angeles Furniture, after his father died and ran it until 1986, when he retired. His wife of 64 years, Betty, survives him. Edna Petersen, owner of Necessities and Temptations gift shop in Port Angeles, said she was friends with the Grays for many years, traveling and playing cards and golf with them.

“He always made you feel special,” Petersen said. “He always made you feel like his very best friend, even though you knew that there were all sorts of other ones out there, too.”

Gifted salesman Petersen said the businessman who owned Angeles Furniture was a gifted salesman. “One of the first things I ever bought from him was the ugliest red-and-black lamp you could ever imagine,” Petersen said. “But when I was talking to him, it was just like it was the best thing in the world.” Despite his ease at selling, he wasn’t one to go for the hard sell, she said. “He always did it with a smile and a charming grace,” Petersen said. “There was never any pressure, but you wanted to get it because you just didn’t want to disappoint him.” Gray helped his mother, Bernice Gray, run Angeles Furniture in its downtown location after his father,

Gary Wagner, who owns Wagner’s Grocery at Laird’s Corner, said his father ran Wagner’s Food Store, which was just down the block from Edna Petersen the original location on First owner of Necessities and Temptations gift shop Street of Angeles Furniture.

“He always made you feel like his very best friend, even though you knew that there were all sorts of other ones out there, too.” Harvey MacDonald Gray II, died at the age of 52. He and his partner, Pierre Lieurance, built the store’s present location at 1114 E. First St. Even after retiring, Gray was a hard worker, Petersen said. “Several years ago, he had spent a lot time working as a volunteer at the [Port Angeles] Food Bank,” Petersen said. One of his favorite pasttimes was playing golf, and he was a member of the Peninsula Golf Course. He also was a member of Rotary International and Northwest Furniture Dealers and served as an usher at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church. Bill Clevenger, who bought out the furniture store from Gray in 1986, said he was a smiling and easygo-

ing man. “He always had a smile on his face and went along with everything we did,” he said. “He was extremely easy to work with and very, very helpful all around.” When Clevenger first met Gray, he remembered him as always having a cigar in his mouth. “That was like his signature look,” he said. Clevenger was working in real estate in the 1980s, which was in a slump at the time, and was searching for a new career. Gray provided that career, and Clevenger said he is still happily running the store. “He was looking to retire, and I knew his son Jack [who was Clevenger’s eventual partner in business] from fishing,” Clevenger said.

‘Happy Days’

“He was a real nice fellow, and I really enjoyed him.” Gray married Betty Marie Somers in 1946. They were high school sweethearts who both attended Roosevelt High School in Port Angeles. In addition to his wife, Gray also is survived by his sons, Harvey “Mac” McDonald Gray IV and wife Janelle and Jack Alan Gray and wife Patty; his daughter, Pamela Adele Caldwell and husband Michael; eight grandchildren, Mitchell Gray, Sean Gray, Jon Gray, Amber Gray, Kyle Gray, Marcus Gray, Evan-James Caldwell and Dane Caldwell; and five great grandchildren, Brennan, Gavin, Jaxson, Jamison and Alex. Donations in Gray’s name may be made to Holy Trinity Lutheran Church Building Fund or Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County.

“‘Happy Days’ — remember that show? — that’s what it was,” Wagner said. “I have a lot of good memories.” Wagner said he remembers Gray as a friendly and generous man. “He was a gregarious fellow. People were first and foremost for him,” Wagner said. Jack Little, menswear buyer for Swain’s General Store in Port Angeles, was a longtime friend of Gray’s as well. “We were good friends and had many great times every morning at Haguewood’s [Restaurant],” Little said. __________ “We got together every morning there, had coffee Reporter Paige Dickerson can and told jokes. be reached at 360-417-3535 or at “It was a bunch of us paige.dickerson@peninsuladaily business guys.

Hanke told the commissioners that the idea to put a restaurant on the site came

out of a discussion last year and was meant to cash in on the proposed foot ferry that would dock near the parcel. Tocatlian said his business plan will not rely on the ferry’s presence but “will be a bonus” if it begins operation. “We’re very excited about developing something on that site,” Hanke said. “The idea of a specialty restaurant and some other uses looks like it will pencil [out] and will allow us to keep the structure to a minimum size and not create a canyon-like effect.”

Chicken Little and the debt ceiling Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke seemed to be channeling Chicken Little when he warned congressional Republicans that any delay in raising the debt ceiling beyond the current $14.3 trillion cap could have “catastrophic” consequences. Continuing America’s borCal rowing and spending addic- Thomas tion will have even greater catastrophic consequences, but people in government don’t think this way. For them, all government spending is good spending, and any attempt to begin the arduous process of restoring fiscal responsibility is viewed by those with vested interests as greedy, selfish and unsympathetic toward the needs of others. Perhaps advocates of unlimited spending might tell us how much is enough if they can’t live on $14.3 trillion? If Congress doesn’t start the

process of cutting spending now when the polls favor Republican economic policies, when will it? Rarely has “if not us, who? If not now, when?” had greater resonance. The Wall Street Journal reported: “Governors around the U.S. are proposing to balance their states’ budgets with a long list of cuts and almost no new taxes, reflecting a goal by politicians from both parties to erase deficits chiefly by shrinking government.” So, if states can do it, why can’t the federal government? Congressional Democrats, for whom a much smaller debt was a big deal when Republican presidents Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush were in the White House, seem unconcerned about debt now that a Democrat is president. Some Democrats, hoping to make Republicans blink, are making noises about another possible government shutdown. Republicans should keep their eyes wide open. On the same day Bernanke made his “catastrophic” comment, House Republicans unveiled their plan to cut $32 billion out of the budget for the

remainder of this fiscal year. That’s short of the $100 billion in cuts promised by Speaker John Boehner before the November election. The Republican Study Committee, a conservative bloc of House members, wants to hold Boehner to his original promise. Republicans should argue that raising the debt ceiling would pay for the continued implementation of Obamacare, which the latest Rasmussen Reports survey shows 55 percent of Likely Voters want repealed. Public opinion and a dubious legal future offer an opportunity for such a strategy. The Study Committee estimates a savings of $2.5 trillion over 10 years if all of its recommendations are implemented. Rich Galen, former press secretary for Dan Quayle and former executive director of GOPAC (, “a national organization dedicated exclusively to electing Republicans to state and local offices” lists on his blog, Mullings (www.mullings. com), some of the committee’s recommendations and adds a few of his own, including a 15 percent reduction in the number of civil-

Peninsula Voices Donating at home As I watch TV from time to time, I always try to watch something that will educate me. (That is a real challenge.) It seems to me that there are way too many commercials that are really pretty dumb. One that comes to mind that isn’t so dumb is about helping other countries’ children who need help. The thought of this is very noble, but don’t you think, as I do, that we in this country have enough children in our own backyard to help first before others are helped? The answer is yes. Before you send any money to these funds to help children in other countries, please give hard thought to donating to a worthy charity for children here who need help just to survive from day to day.

ian federal employees, “accomplished by attrition rather than outright firings.” Galen proposes, “Only one new employee could be hired for every two who left until the reduction number was met.” (This should apply to all branches of government.) Cuts in programs are also warranted, including “cutting out the Hope VI Program, charged with proposing a National Action Plan to eradicate severely distressed public housing, which “will save $250 million per year.” Anyone notice such a plan, or the relief of “stress” on public housing? Amtrak costs $1.565 billion per year in federal subsidies. Couldn’t private enterprise do better? Galen thinks congressional travel should be cut. Each member, he says, ought to get six trips home per year at public expense. “More than that, they have to use campaign funds,” Galen said. The Republican Study Committee estimates cutting other federal travel would save $7.5 billion. Ethanol cuts aren’t in the GOP plan, but they should be.

Our readers’ letters, faxes

So should responsible cuts in defense spending. Entire cabinet agencies, like Housing and Urban Development, Education and Energy should be eliminated and any essential work folded into other government agencies. That isn’t likely to happen in the short term, but if Republicans stick with the principles that got them elected and demonstrate their plan works, the public might go along with cutting major expenditures, including modernizing and reforming Social Security and Medicare. There may well be a “catastrophe,” as Bernanke predicts, but it is more likely to occur if we don’t reduce our spending than if we raise the debt ceiling and keep on spending with borrowed money.

Burning pallets Enough already on the burning pallets for firewood issue [in the PDN’s recent Rants & Raves column]. Pallets are wood and perfectly burnable. When a homeowner burns pallets, they do not wind up in the landfill — that is a plus. It takes a lot of work to disassemble pallets and cut them into burnable lengths — an exercise-plus for the homeowner. It is beyond me why anyone would complain about this non-issue.

Egypt’s youth will not be silenced “In memoriam, Christoph Probst, Hans Scholl, Sophie Scholl” reads the banner at the top of Kareem Amer’s popular Egyptian dissident blog. “Beheaded on Feb. 22, 1943, for darAmy ing to say no to Goodman Hitler, and yes to freedom and justice for all.” The young blogger’s banner recalls the courageous group of antiNazi pamphleteers in World War II Germany who called themselves the White Rose Collective. These Germans secretly produced and distributed six pamphlets denouncing Nazi atrocities, proclaiming in one: “We will not be silent.” Sophie and her brother, Hans Scholl, were captured by the Nazis, tried, convicted and beheaded. Kareem Amer, who spent four years in prison in Egypt for his blogging, has disappeared off the streets of Cairo after leaving Tahrir Square with a friend, according

to The group assumes Amer is now among the hundreds of journalists and human-rights activists snatched by the regime of Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak. It has launched a campaign to demand his release. Amer disappeared just before Wael Ghonim was released. Ghonim is a 30-year-old Google executive who helped administer a Facebook page instrumental to organizing the Jan. 25 protests in Egypt. The page, called “We are all Khaled Said,” is named in memory of a young man killed by police in Alexandria in June 2010. A photo of Khaled Said’s corpse appeared on the Internet, his face savagely beaten. Ghonim traveled to Egypt to participate in the protests, and was arrested and secretly held by the Egyptian government for 12 days. He was interviewed on Egyptian TV channel Dream 2 upon his release. He broke down and cried on camera when shown the photos of many who had been killed so far in the protests. Ghonim said: “I’m not a hero. I was only using the keyboard, on

the Internet. I never put my life in danger. “The real heroes are the ones on the ground.” Ghonim’s release swelled the crowds in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, still demanding an end to Mubarak’s 30-year regime. Tahrir, which means ‘liberation’ in Arabic, is the heart and soul of the pro-democracy movement in Egypt, but it is not the only place where spirited, defiant people gather. As this is written, a new encampment is being established outside the Egyptian parliament. Six thousand workers are reportedly striking at the Suez Canal. As the entrenched dictatorship claimed to be making concessions, its shock troops unleashed a wave of violence, intimidation, arrest and murder. Egypt’s burgeoning youth population is driving the revolution. The April 6 Youth Movement formed last year to support textile strikers in the Egyptian city of Mahalla. One of the founders of the movement, Asmaa Mahfouz, who has just turned 26, posted a video to Facebook on Jan. 18, days after the Tunisian revolution forced the ouster of their dictator. “Four Egyptians have set

themselves on fire to protest humiliation and hunger and poverty and degradation they had to live with for 30 years,” she said. “Four Egyptians have set themselves on fire thinking maybe we can have a revolution like Tunisia, maybe we can have freedom, justice, honor and human dignity. . . . “I’m making this video to give you one simple message: We want to go down to Tahrir Square on Jan. 25. “If we still have honor and want to live in dignity on this land, we have to go down on Jan. 25.” Her call to action was another spark. From the Internet, people began organizing in the neighborhoods, bridging the digital divide with printed fliers and word of mouth. Following Jan. 25, the epic first day of protest, she posted another video message: “What we learned yesterday is that power belongs to the people, not to the thugs. “Power is in unity, not in division. “Yesterday, we truly lived the best moments of our lives.” The first week of protests breached what many are calling

“the fear barrier.” Since the government-backed violence of Friday, Jan. 28, according to Human Rights Watch, at least 302 people have been killed in the cities of Cairo, Alexandria and Suez. President Obama continues to insist that the U.S. can’t choose the leader of Egypt, but that the people of Egypt must. That is true. But the Obama administration continues to supply the Mubarak regime with economic and military aid. The “Made in U.S.A” stamped on the tear-gas canisters used against protesters in Tahrir Square enraged the people there. In the past 30 years, the U.S. has spent tens of billions of dollars to shore up the Mubarak regime. It is time to turn off the cash and weapons spigot now.

She was treated at the scene, and Sequim police directed traffic around the site. No other vehicles were involved in the incident.

New Sequim fields becoming a reality Project gets boost from Haller grant By Jeff Chew

Peninsula Daily News

SEQUIM — A group that aims to add kick to the inventory of Sequim’s declining youth soccer fields has landed a $105,000 grant, thanks to the Albert Haller Foundation, and will now be able to break ground on playfields in mid-May. Gary Smith, president of the Albert Haller Foundation board since it was formed as a nonprofit in 1992 in memory of his friend, said Sequim Family Advocates’ project to build 13 acres of multiuse playfields east of the city of Sequim’s Water Reclamation Demonstration Park is “in keeping with Albert’s philosophy.” That is so much so that Sequim Family Advocates will name the new fields Albert Haller Playfields. They will be used for flag football, lacrosse and other community events and activities and should be ready to use by fall.

Close to goal The grant, which was announced last weekend, brings Sequim Family Advocates within $40,000 of meeting its fundraising goal of $500,000, said the group’s board president, Craig Stevenson. “The school district’s fields are wearing out,” Stevenson said. “And this resonated with the Haller Foundation.” Calling Haller Foundation “one of the stalwarts” of helping children and families in Clallam County, Stevenson said: “We really feel a lot of commonality with what we are trying to do. It’s a great fit with us and them.” Stevenson said ground will be broken on the project “when the dirt dries out this spring.” Jon Jack, Sequim Family Advocates board member, said the Haller grant “was the break we’d been working for, and the momentum it creates should help us reach our goal. “Not to mention the ‘Albert Haller Playfields’

Helped Little League Smith agreed, recalling when Haller more than 20 years ago recognized the need to help Sequim Little League build a baseball park off River Road near U.S. Highway 101, donating his time and money to that project. “I think Albert would have jumped right in the there and helped out this project,” he said of the five large and three small fields to be built on the site owned by the city of Sequim. Haller was born in Clallam County in 1903 and worked in the logging industry. He and his wife saved money and invested it and left an ongoing legacy to be used in Clallam County. Dave Blake, Haller Foundation board secretary, said the city of Sequim’s willingness to contribute more than $1 million in land for the fields played a part in awarding the Haller grant. “I think it was a real opportunity to create a lot of playfield space, which was really, really needed,” said Blake, who long served on the Sequim School Board.

Foundation grants The Albert Haller Foundation last year distributed $296,000 in grants to more than 60 nonprofits and public school districts in Clallam County. The foundation gave $250,000 to build the Sequim unit of the Olympic Peninsula Boys & Girls Clubs and also contributed $50,000 to the Olympic Peninsula Skills Center in Port Angeles. It also donates to student scholarships, the county’s food banks and the Serenity House homeless shelter. Stevenson estimates 1,000 children anxious to play on new fields.

Sequim School District’s overcrowded fields are pockmarked with muddy spots and lumpy grass, he said. At times, Stevenson said, teams are left to practice on paved portions of the school grounds for lack of available fields. He called it a “crisis” back in October 2008 when Sequim Family Advocates first formed, and said use today by junior soccer youths has doubled over the past seven years to 500 players, with additional soccer club use at about 100 more.

Prior donations Already donated has been more than $150,000 in in-kind construction from We Dig It Excavation, owned by John Dickinson of Sequim, Primo Construction of Carlsborg, Lakeside Industries of Port Angeles, Clallam Co-op of Sequim, Pettit Oil of Port Angeles, Four Seasons Engineering of Port Angeles and Cummins and Associates of Sequim. Primo will install curbing for the planned 100space parking lot. Lakeside will lay 450 feet of paved walking path around the fields, and the Clallam Co-op donated seed and fertilizer to grow the grass. Pettit Oil donated fuel and lubricants for the grading equipment. “It will be a capital improvement, a physical change to the town’s landscape,” Stevenson said, adding it will serve the children and families of Sequim “for the next generation.” “I think that they’ll find it to be a better park.” Stevenson said those wishing to help Sequim Family Advocates reach its fundraising goal can contact the group via its website, www.sequimfamily

Doppler construction set in March Facility being built in Grays Harbor Peninsula Daily News

COPALIS BEACH — The National Weather Service hopes to start construction on a new facility to house a Doppler radar facility in northern Grays Harbor County in March. The new radar system will help forecasters better predict the severity of winter storms as they approach the North Olympic Peninsula, the National Weather Service has said. The site, selected two weeks ago, will be at Langley Hill near Copalis Beach, said Ted Buehner, meteorologist at the National Weather Service. The lease for the land has not yet been signed, as the details are still being ironed out, Buehner said. “Because it has not been finalized, we can’t do anything with the land, but the ________ overall plan is to have some Sequim-Dungeness Valley Edi- form of a ribbon-cutting and tor Jeff Chew can be reached at groundbreaking once all 360-681-2391 or at jeff.chew@ that has been determined,” he said.

form a blockade that prevents Seattle-area radar from detecting the severity of those storms. Buehner said the stateof-the-art, dual polarization radar system will show the intensity, perception and snow levels of a storm before it arrives on the Pacific Coast. Buehner noted that the 125-mile radius will cover such West End towns as Forks, LaPush, Neah Bay and Clallam Bay-Sekiu, as well as giving forecasters a better view of what’s coming for the whole Peninsula. U.S. Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Mountlake Terrace, who has championed the coastal radar system for years, secured a $2 million down payment for the radar system in 2009. An additional $7 million was included in the 2010 Consolidated Appropriations Act.

SEATTLE — A federal judge has struck down parts of Washington’s “right of publicity” law in a long-running legal fight over the use of the name and likeness of legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix. U.S. District Judge Thomas Zilly made the ruling this week in a case brought by Hendrix’s estate against a company run in part by the guitarist’s brother, Leon Hendrix. The judge said Leon’s company can market items using Jimi’s name, likeness and artwork as long as it

doesn’t infringe on any trademarks held by the Hendrix estate. Zilly ruled earlier in the case that some actions by Leon’s company, including using the name Hendrix Licensing, did violate such trademarks, and a jury trial is scheduled for May to determine damages. The judge said that in 2008, the Legislature amended the state’s Personality Rights Act to allow anyone to claim publicity rights in Washington state even if they had no connection here. Zilly said that was random and unconstitutional.

Once the site is cleared, a road fit for heavy machinery will be created, utilities to power the radar tower will be added, and support concrete will be poured. The work is expected to last throughout the summer. The radar could be operating in late September, Buehner said. An Air Force training radar facility for the site is now being refitted in Oklahoma, he said. “It is kind of like your grandmother’s used car. It doesn’t have a lot of miles on it,” Buehner said. “It is exactly the same technology that we already use, and our technicians already know how to service it.” Existing radar can track precipitation in the Strait of Juan de Fuca, but it can’t detect low-level weather bearing down on the coast.

Some wins for PT moves on behind sport 62-44 win anglers By Michael Carman

SPORTS ANGLERS SCORED quite a few victories at last weekend’s state Fish and Wildlife Commission meetings in Olympia. First and foremost for Matt many North Olympic PeninSchubert sula residents, of course, was the salvaging of Lake Sutherland as a freshwater fishery . . . albeit for only part of the year (instead of continuing to be a year-round lake it will be open, beginning this fall, from the last Saturday in April to Oct. 31). A couple of other actions regarding Puget Sound crab and Marine Area 4B (western Strait of Juan De Fuca) bottomfishing turned out well as well. To recap: ■  The commission approved new regulations for the 2011 recreational crab season that will expand sport fishing opportunities across much of the Peninsula. Reflecting a new policy adopted last October, the new regulations will allow crabbers to fish for Dungeness crab five days a week with a five-crab daily limit. That means the fishery will open Thursdays through Mondays from July through Labor Day in Area 6 (eastern Strait), 9 (Admiralty Inlet) and 12 (Hood Canal). As in years past, winter crab fishing opportunities will vary depending on the number of crab still available for harvest after summer catch numbers are tallied. Obviously, since the crab fishery opened just four days a week in recent years, this is a step forward for crabbers. ■  The Area 4B bottomfish fishery was spared once again after commissioners voted to make other conservation measures to protect threatened Puget Sound rockfish. Proposals to close parts or all of Area 4B to sport fishing were denied in favor of reducing the daily limit from 15 to 10 and closing several commercial fisheries in the area. Other alternatives could have resulted in the closure of all fishing or bottomfishing in popular waters around Tatoosh and Waadah islands. Outside of maintaining the status quo — a non-starter because of the state of Puget Sound rockfish — the change in daily limit was the best possible outcome for the sport fishing community.

The win advanced the Redskins into the 1A Tri-District, with Northwest District No. 4 Coupeville coming to town tonight at 5 p.m. for another loser-out contest in Bruce Blevins Gymnasium. “The offense really executed well, we got solid games from Seiji [Thielk] and Jacob [DeBerry] and our other guys all chipped in,” Redskins (8-13 overall) coach Tom Webster said. DeBerry was a steady influence, putting up six points in the first, six in the second and seven in the third quarter on his way to a team-high 20 points. Turn

Do-or-die night for six teams Peninsula Daily News

It’s win-or-go-home time for many North Olympic Peninsula prep basketball teams. In fact, tonight presents five of make-or-break affairs for Peninsula squads, starting with the Sequim boys’ loser-out sub-district game at home against Evergreen. The Wolves (10-6 in league, 14-7 overall) caught a bit of a bad break when they lost out on the Olympic League’s No. 3 seed to Class 2A sub-districts because of a tiebreaker.

Now the Wolves must host Seamount’s No. 4 2A team in Evergreen (5-9, 7-11) for the right to play for the Nos. 9 and 11 seeds to the 2A Bi-District. “We’re going to come out focused,” Sequim coach Greg Glasser said Tuesday night. “These kids, they don’t quit. They don’t care if it’s a loser-out game or a winner-in game. “It doesn’t matter. They play hard every night out.”

Sutherland stocking? A surprising note coming out of last weekend’s meeting was the state’s commitment to continue stocking Lake Sutherland with rainbow trout. The five-year fishing moratorium on the Elwha River watershed approved by the commission is being done to aid stocks of native anadromous fish — salmon and steelhead — before and during dam removal. Sutherland was to be included in the long-term closure because of its connection to Elwha via Indian Creek and its potential as a sockeye salmon breeding ground. Thus, even if the state agreed to open Sutherland seasonally — which it did Friday by making it an Opening Day lake — one would think any stocking activities would end. That’s not likely to be the case, however, according to Fish and Wildlife Regional Fish Program Manager Ron Warren. “What we don’t want to do is release rainbow trout that if they leave the lake could pose some risk to the recolonization of natural steelhead that are going to return [to the Elwha],” Warren said. “We may modify the type of rainbow trout we release that would be more of a sterile, non-reproductive rainbow [like triploids] so that if it does leave the lake it doesn’t impede recovery of those steelhead populations.” There are other arguments that could be made for terminating the stocking plan at Sutherland outside of hurting natural fish reproduction (e.g. competition for food).

Pirates hang on Peninsula men move into first with victory By Matt Schubert

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Skagit Valley head coach Roger Valentine shook his head in disbelief. One minutes after giving up two straight offensive rebounds in the waning minutes of Wednesday night’s Peninsula College-Skagit Valley men’s basketball showdown, the Pirates

snatched another on a their own missed free throw. “Three in a row?” he yelled in disbelief to his bench. Against the physical, athletic and active Peninsula College Pirates, believe it. The Pirates took care of the boards, out-rebounding the Cardinals 50-23, and made enough free throws down the stretch to hold on for a critical 79-73

NWAACC North Division win Wednesday night. The win vaulted Peninsula (9-2 in North, 14-6 overall) into a tie for first place with Skagit in the North with five games to go in the regular season. “I think that we’re tough and we bring multiple guys off the bench and we wear other teams down with our depth,” first-year Pirates head coach Lance Von Vogt said. “I think we gave great effort [tonight]. We had a little bit of a mental lapse in the final four or six minutes until we corrected it at the very end.” Turn



The Port Townsend boys and girls will also be playing for their lives at tonight’s home playoff double­header. The Redskins boys earned another loser-out playoff tonight at 5 p.m. against District I No. 4 Coupeville with their win over Orting on Wednesday. Meanwhile, the Port Townsend girls (7-9, 9-11) go up against familiar faces in Chimacum at 7 p.m. in a loser-out game for the West Central District’s fifth seed to the 1A Tri-District. The winners of both games play again Saturday for a spot in the double-elimination bracket.

More games Also in loser-out games tonight are the Clallam Bay boys and girls and Quilcene girls. The Clallam Bay and Quilcene girls will actually face each other in a bit of Peninsula cannibalism at the Rangers’ gym at 7 p.m. Quilcene (11-8) earned the home playoff appearance after submitting its first winning season in six years.

ping 1-3-1 zone defense disrupted the Pirate offense. The Mount Si graduate drained all six of his 3-pointers in those final 10 minutes, with his fifth bringing the Peninsula lead down to 72-66 with 2:30 to go. With the Pirates needing to stem the tide, Freeman and Jacobson rebounded back-to-back 3-point misses from Clark, a sequence that burned 1 minutes, 18 seconds worth of clock. Skagit’s Travis Church scored another putback with 1:04 remaining to put the score at 72-68.

But Freeman came up with another offensive rebound on the other end after Trevant Musgrow missed the second of two free throws. With the Cardinals scrambling to defend yet another possession, Jeremiah Johnson knocked down a 12-foot baseline jumper, essentially putting the game away at 75-68 with 26.8 seconds left. “[Skagit’s 1-3-1 trap]’s not something that they had shown yet, and I don’t think I prepared my guys for it,” Von Vogt said. “We should be prepared for it two-thirds of the way into the season anyway. We should be able to handle that trap and be strong with the basketball. “Tonight, we struggled against it until we had a timeout and we talked about how to attack it.

PORT ANGELES ­— The Peninsula College women’s team proved to be no match for the first-place Skagit Valley Cardinals in Wednesday night’s 66-35 loss. Up by 22 points at half, the Cardinals (10-1 in North, 17-4 overall) led the entire game. Peninsula (2-9, 5-15) had no answer for Skagit’s Brittany Gray and Brandi Benner, who scored a combined 44 points in the loss.

Fed’s Bernanke isn’t worried about inflation Peninsula Daily News news services

WASHINGTON — Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke faced tough questions at a House hearing Wednesday over the threat of rising inflation brought on by the central bank’s policy of buying hundreds of billions of dollars in bonds to try to strengthen the economy. House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., told the Fed chief that he is con- Bernanke cerned that the Fed won’t be able to detect inflation until “the cow is out of the barn” and until inflation is already spreading dangerously through the economy. He and other Republicans are skeptical of the Fed’s November decision to buy $600 billion in Treasury bonds, fearing it will cause prices to jump too much. Ryan also pushed Ber-

nanke on what role the Fed’s stimulus efforts might play in an outbreak of inflation in developing nations such as Brazil and China in recent months. “We’ve got inflation popping up in other parts of the world,” Ryan said. “To what extent do you think the Fed’s monetary policy has contributed to these global inflationary pressures? Has this contributed to some of these hot money flows abroad?” Bernanke dismissed the fear, arguing that underlying supply and demand is driving higher prices for oil, wheat and many other items, rather than the Fed printing too much money.

Policy not all-powerful “Monetary policy can’t do anything about bad weather in Russia or increases in demand for oil in Brazil and China,” Bernanke said. “What we can do is try to get stable prices and growth here in the United States.” It was Bernanke’s first appearance before a committee of the new Republi-

And though he had a new audience, the Fed chief hewed closely to previous statements about the economy and the federal budget — that the economy is gaining ground as 2011 begins, that unemployment is too high and that the skyrocketing budget deficit poses dangers to the economy if it isn’t brought down. Bernanke said in his testimony that the Fed is com-

mitted to price stability and is confident that the Fed can end the bond-buying when the economy shows significant enough growth. He showed little concern about rising fuel and food prices, saying that “overall inflation is still quite low, and longer-term inflation expectations have remained stable.” He said unemployment may remain high for several years.

$300 million in unemployment insurance tax relief clears House The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — The Legislature’s attempt to speedily approve $300 million in tax breaks took a decisive step Wednesday, with the House unanimously voting for a bill that also included a temporary pay increase for people claiming new unemployment benefits. Lawmakers had been working on a tight deadline. Gov. Chris Gregoire has demanded that the Legislature deliver a bill cutting 2011’s unemployment insurance rates by this week.

If that provision is not signed into law in time, Gregoire said, businesses could see their unemployment taxes jump by an average of 36 percent as they try to rebound from the Great Recession. After a few days of frenzied negotiations, legislators in the House voted to give businesses the permanent tax break and include a pay bump of $25 a week in existing benefits to people who enroll in unemployment between March and November of this year. The bump is temporary, though. That money is being

drawn from $68 million the state is getting from the federal government. Once the $68 million runs out, the benefit increase will no longer exist.

Business, unemployed “We need to do something that benefits the businesses that have paid into [the unemployment fund] and the workers who are unemployed,” said Rep. Mike Sells, D-Everett. “We’re going to do what we can out of this House to move this economy forward.”

The House’s bill now goes to the Senate, where a vote is expected as soon as Friday. Sen. Jeanne Kohl-Welles, a Democrat who has been a key negotiator in the Senate, said she was optimistic that the bill would be approved in the Senate. “I’m amazed they were able to pull it together right now,” Kohl-Welles said. Gregoire urged the Senate to pass the House bill, saying the new bill “provides a package that helps support jobs and our economy at all levels.” She hopes to sign the bill into law Friday.

Initiative signature rules contentious The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — Critics on Wednesday weighed in on a measure aimed at tightening regulations on signature-gathering, saying it would make it harder for grass-roots initiatives to make the ballot and would target signature gatherers for harassment from opponents. The bill, proposed by Rep. Chris Reykdal, D-Tumwater, requires all signature-gathering businesses and paid signature gatherers to register with the secretary of state. It also increases the fee for filing initiatives or refer-

enda from $5 to $500, $450 of which would be refunded if the measure qualifies for the ballot. The bill’s sponsors say the measure would help guarantee the validity of signatures collected by signature-gathering businesses and ensure greater transparency in the ballot measure process. Supporters of the bill mentioned two recent cases of signature fraud at the hearing: one involving a Service Employee International Union volunteer accused of forging signatures in support of I-1098 last year, which is still being

prosecuted, and one in which two women were prosecuted for forging signatures for I-985 in the 2008 election.

Eyman opposed But opponents like initiative promoter Tim Eyman fear the bill would stifle people’s ability to get their issues on the ballot, especially grass-roots groups that lack money to raise support for their proposals. Eyman argued the problem lawmakers purport to be solving — that of fraudulent signatures being submitted with initiative peti-

tions — doesn’t exist, and the bill would just serve to burden the process. The bill requires that all paid signature gatherers submit their full name, street address and a photograph of themselves when registering with the secretary of state. “It would essentially put a target on every single person that is collecting signatures, making them hugely susceptible to harassment from people who oppose the initiative,” Eyman said. Reykdal’s bill is HB 1668. A companion bill in the state Senate is SB 5297.

SEATTLE — U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius came to Seattle on Wednesday to hear ideas on how to cut health care costs and make services more efficient. She and Gov. Chris Gregoire led a meeting of health care officials from around the state. Sebelius praised Virginia Mason Medical Center, where the meeting took place, as a model that could be adopted by much of the country. Dr. Gary Kaplan, chairman and CEO of Virginia Mason, said the center 10 years ago adopted techniques pioneered by Toyota in Japan to involve all managers and employees in constant improvement. Since then, he said, the center has been able to save millions of dollars by identifying and eliminating waste.

Tesoro lawsuit ANACORTES — Relatives of six of the seven workers killed in an April 2010 explosion and fire at Tesoro Corp.’s Anacortes oil refinery filed a wrongful death lawsuit on Wednesday. The suit in Skagit County Superior Court alleges the company deliberately ignored dangerous conditions that led to the blast. A contractor who was burned but survived joined the families in the lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages. The lawsuit accuses Tesoro of failing to inspect decaying equipment and ignoring industry safety standards and federal laws governing refinery safety. State Department of Labor & Industries investigators determined the explosion was preventable. The department fined Tesoro $2.39 million. San Antonio, Texas-based Tesoro has appealed the fine. Tesoro spokesman Mike Marcy said the company doesn’t comment on litigation.

AP exams OLYMPIA — About 17 percent of Washington’s class of 2010 earned college credit by passing Advanced Placement exams. The number of students both taking and passing the exams has been increasing steadily in Washington state. State officials said participation over the past five years has increased in every ethnic group and among low-income students. AP exams are offered in 36 subjects each May,

but the most popular tests in Washington are in English, U.S. history, English literature and calculus. Washington ranks 17th in the nation for its AP exam success rate.

E-cigarettes SPOKANE — Spokane County commissioners voted Tuesday to ban the sale of electronic cigarettes to minors in the county. Although smoking cigarettes has been illegal for those under 18 for decades, they have been able to get a legal nicotine fix from “e-cigarettes.” The Spokane City Council passed a similar ban Monday. The Spokane Valley City Council will consider a ban on Feb. 22. An e-cigarette runs off liquid nicotine and a battery. It puts off water vapor. Retailers say it is safer than regular cigarettes because there is no secondhand smoke and far fewer toxins than a lit tobacco cigarette. But e-cigarettes are not regulated by the FDA, and health officials say they can be as addictive as regular cigarettes. King County bans the use of e-cigarettes indoors.

Rare gray whale reaches Oregon’s coast The Associated Press

scientists’ perception for western Pacific gray whales but does not mean the entire stock heads east in winter. “There may be other options,” Mate said, such as the South China Sea. Only 130 of the western Pacific gray whales remain. The stock is genetically

distinct from eastern Pacific gray whales that spend summers feeding off Alaska and winters breeding and giving birth off Mexico. About 18,000 of those whales remain. Western Pacific gray whales are the second-most threatened species of large whales after North Pacific

right whales. Western Pacific gray whales spend summers near Sahkalin Island at the south end of the Sea of Okhotsk near Russia. Researchers last year had hoped to tag 12 of the animals. They were limited by typhoons and gales but managed to tag Flex on

their last day of field work. Bad weather has prevented researchers from launching a boat to observe Flex, review his condition and see if he is traveling alone. The public can track the whale on Oregon State’s website, http://mmi.oregon

It moved from deep water off the continental shelf to shallow water near Queets, south of Neah Bay on the northwest tip of Washington. The whale kept swimming south at just more than 4 mph and on Monday was detected south of Lincoln City, Ore. “That’s about 15 miles north of my laboratory at the Hatfield Marine Science Center,” Mate said, noting the irony of having to travel to Russia last year to tag the whale only to have it show up nearly at his doorstep. The location is changing


ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A type of whale that spends summers off Russia has made its way to Oregon coastal waters as part of a journey being tracked by scientists to better understand the behavior of the highly endangered animals. Researchers attached a satellite tag to a 13-yearold, male western Pacific gray whale known as Flex on Oct. 4. The whale moved east across the Bering Sea and south through the Aleutian Islands into the Gulf of Alaska. On Jan. 27, it was detected about 400 miles off the coast of British Columbia. Researchers lost the signal and feared the satellite tag had fallen off but picked it up five days later, said Bruce Mate, director of Oregon State University’s Marine Mammal Institute, which is working on the tracking project with the A.N. Severtsov Institute of

Ecology and Evolution of the Russian Academy of Sciences. “It appears to have been because of bad weather,” Mate said Monday of the lapse. Satellite signals confirmed the location of the whale 280 miles west of Vancouver Island.

been extinct since the early 1900s. This helped result in the reestablishment of viable otter populations across the state. In 1979, another reintroduction effort was started to return ospreys to Pennsylvania’s waterways; they also had also become extinct. By 2000, ospreys had recovered and more than 40 pairs are now nesting across the state. In 1986, Rymon collaborated in the production of a film, “Return from Forever,” depicting his osprey reintroduction efforts. Rymon has a Bachelor and Master of Science degrees from East Stroudsburg University and a doctorate from Oregon State University. In 1997, after 34 years of university teaching, he retired and moved to Sequim. Rymon is a member of the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society. The program is free and open to the public.

PORT ANGELES — Students from the North Olympic Peninsula Skills Center Natural Resources Program have become involved as “team leaders” for Streamkeepers of Clallam County. The students are responsible for Valley and Tumwater creeks in Port Angeles. Duties include coordinating and completing water quality data collection four times per year and training new Streamkeepers who work on Valley and Tumwater. In addition to their responsibilities, students have also worked with Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe biologist Mike McHenry to determine the success of the early-stages of Valley Creek restoration. The work of a Streamkeeper continues year-round, and the skills center is looking for more students to help with spring monitoring and other special projects. The program offers a variety of hands-on skills and training options for students 16 to 21 who do not have a high school diploma. For more information, phone 360-565-1892 or visit www.nopsc. org.

To register, phone Uptown North Olympic Peninsula Skills Center Nutrition at 360-385-3290, phone 360-301-6318 or e-mail Ann North Olympic Peninsula Skills Center student Jesse Turney, left, and Streamkeepers volunteer Brian Phillips measure the flow of Valley Creek in the recently restored area.

Audubon meeting SEQUIM — Retired professor Larry Rymon will present “Reintroduction of Endangered Spe-

the Dungeness River Audubon Center at Railroad Bridge Park, 2151 W. Hendrickson St., at 7 p.m.

Rymon was the research director for a project that reintroduced river otters into areas of Pennsylvania where they had

PORT ANGELES — Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert will be discussed by the Reading PALS book discussion group at the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St., at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 23. The author seemed to have it all in her late 20s — a good education, successful career, a husband, a house. But there was discontent, and unable to understand it, she divorced, fought depression and struggled for self-understanding. Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything Across Italy, India, and Indonesia chronicles her journey to uncover passion, devotion and the balance between life and spirituality. Copies can be borrowed from the library. Preregistration is not required and drop-ins are always welcome.

Home has heart and chocolate; it works Today is the 10th day of February. Four days from now, it will be the 14th day of February, which we culturally, socially and commercially refer to as Valentine’s Day. If that is startling information to you, put down this newspaper and go take care of whatever it is (or whoever it is) that will allow your life to proceed without emotional distress. The newspaper will still be here when you get back. If that is not startling information to you, read on. Valentine’s Day is an interesting grab bag of images and icons: A fat little cherub-like critter flits hither and yon, smilingly firing arrows into humans, who are then struck by love and romance and/or the bill from the ER room. I particularly like the “love and romance” part, presume you do, too, and further presume that you have that part under control because that is not the kind of “help” we purport to offer under “Help Line.” My second favorite part of the Valentine’s Day whoop-de-do is the almost unanimous, if fleeting, acceptance of chocolate as a “good” thing, which to my

Mrs. White was born Feb. 9, 1921, in Black Diamond, then a coal-mining town southeast of Seattle. A high majority of the town’s population was from Welsh ancestry, including Mrs. White’s parents. Her father, Gomer, was a coal miner. Her mother, Alice, worked at Boeing Co. Before retiring, Mrs. White worked in the food industry in Renton.

Hmm . . . No, caregivers aren’t crazy — at least, not “officially” — but they are doing high-stress work 24/7, and usually with someone they loved in another way, before it was “this way.” Counseling kind of makes sense, huh? But let’s go back to Beatitudes for a minute: They figured out that nutritious, low-salt, low-fat, doctor-recommended foods might actually be discouraging folks from eating, so they serve whatever folks seem to want, including bacon and/or whatever. In fact, some staff members carry a stash of chocolate in their pockets. They think that comforting food improves behavior and mood because it sends a message that can still be understood: “It feels good, therefore I must be in a place where I am loved.” Happy Valentine’s Day.

Fun ’n’ Advice

Peninsula Daily News

Readers concerned for outcast student


DEAR ABBY: You assured “Overwhelmed in Ohio” that fellow student “Dan” will “move on and start building a life” after high school is over. On what base might he build? Because “Overwhelmed” says Dan is an “outcast” whom everyone treats as invisible and he has attached himself to the one person who has befriended him, it appears he has completely missed the normal teen social-learning process. How, then, is he supposed to have acquired the social skills necessary for building connections later in life? There’s a difference between being unpopular and being ostracized. An unpopular kid can participate in social situations with similar kids. A kid who is shunned cannot. Unfortunately, Dan may be on a path toward lifelong social illiteracy and isolation. What needs to happen before “Overwhelmed” pulls away is for the adults in charge of this school to figure out why Dan has been ostracized and develop an effective remedy for the situation — one that gets Dan into normal relationships with other people. And there should also be lessons about empathy provided to the students who are shunning him. Knows From Experience

Dear Abby: My teenage son was similarly “invisible” to most of his classmates, and it led to deep depression and anxiety. He is now at a school with other kids who have social learning disorders — a broad class that includes Asperger’s syndrome and a general failure to observe and respond to social cues. If Dan falls into this category, he needs the help of both the adults and teens in his life. There is also effective therapy available for social learning disorders, and a decent school counselor should be able to help Dan and his parents find it. Mom of a Formerly Invisible Teen

Peninsula Daily News

Hyundai needs constant jump-starts Dear Doctor: I recently purchased a 2001 Hyundai Accent in Florida and towed it to Arkansas. During the test drive, the car ran great. However, after getting it to Arkansas, the car had to be jumped-started 10 times in two weeks. It would run great all day, then would drain down overnight. There is no trunk or hood light. I have had the battery, alternator, starter and fuel pump replaced. I also pulled the fuse for the stereo in case it was draining the battery. The seller said he replaced the transmission with a 2007 model. He also replaced the fuel gauge sensor with a used one before I picked the car up. Can you help? Ken Dear Ken: There is no one feature that causes the parasitic drain that kills the battery overnight. The technician will need to hook up an amp meter in line with the negative battery cable or use a low amp current meter. This is the only way to check the current draw. Next, the technician will

the auto doc start Damato removing one fuse at a time to monitor the draw. He may also look on Alldata to view the wiring diagrams of all components that have power with the key in the “off” position.


Knock sensor failure Dear Doctor: I own a 2002 Nissan Frontier pickup truck with 2WD with approximately 141,000 miles, which I bought new. I have had to replace the knock sensor twice. The service light still comes on with a knock sensor code. I was told it won’t damage the engine, but in order to pass state inspection and get a sticker, no “check engine” light can be on. This will cost around $500. Can this knock sensor be positioned to another

area that can be easily accessed? Half the engine has to be taken apart to get to it. It’s a lot of labor and work! George Dear George: I have repositioned everything from knock sensors to oxygen sensors for various reasons. Knock sensor failure is common on Nissan vehicles. The knock sensor picks up engine pinging and retards the ignition timing. If you want to move the location, then the knock sensor must be bolted to the head block or intake manifold so it can pick up any engine ping. Another very important part is the wire harness connector to the knock sensor.

Best full-size sedan? Dear Doctor: We are looking for a full-size sedan that is both comfortable to drive and has good performance. I would rather not have a foreign, car and we want to keep the price under $45,000. We were made aware of the 2011 Taurus “SHO” and were able to drive a

Car of the Week

used 2010 model. We were shocked at its performance, a V-6 with twin turbo chargers. I had to let up on the throttle, I was getting nervous and I believe the front end started to get light. What is your opinion? Vic Dear Vic: There is no question that today’s vehicles have a lot more power, from things such as turbochargers, to precise electronics to fuel management. Ford’s EcoBoost twin turbocharged V-6 has more performance and fuel economy than the V-8 engines of years ago. The additional gears from the automatic transmission also keep the engine in the power rpm band. This is a good choice for a performance sedan.
