Rhody carnival OK’d for Memorial Field BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT TOWNSEND — The Rhododendron Festival’s carnival will come to Memorial Field this year, despite reports the county was not going to allow the event to take place in that location. “We never said we wouldn’t allow the carnival to take place on the field,” said Jefferson

County Public Works Director Monte Reinders. “We were looking into other opportunities, but there were no other acceptable alternatives.” The 79th annual Rhododendron Festival takes place May 12-17, with the carnival scheduled to take place Thursday through Saturday, May 15-17. The carnival was situated on city streets until 2006 when the new City Hall construction

began, and that building along with subsequent renovations to Pope Marine Park meant there was no other downtown location capable of handling the large carnival rides.

Kiddie rides “If we couldn’t use the field, we’d be restricted to using the kiddie rides, and that would cost us a lot of money,” said fes-

tival Treasurer Melanie Bozak. “If we couldn’t have the big rides, we may as well just cancel the carnival.” Bozak said the festival’s cut from the carnival, which ranges from $5,000 to $8,000, covers the cost of the field’s rental along with traveling expenses to other parades throughout the year. The carnival company has put down a $2,000 damage deposit for the field, according

to Reinders. “The field is subject to damage if it gets wet, and we need to be protected,” Reinders said. The county will meet with festival representatives in early May to assess weather conditions, but both parties expect the carnival will proceed as planned unless the weather is extremely wet. TURN



Rescuers fight mud, more rain CHARLIE BERMANT/PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

An American flag put up by volunteers helping search the area stands atop the ruins Tuesday of a house left at the end of a deadly mudslide from the hillside seen about a mile behind.


PORT TOWNSEND — The San Juan Taqueria fills a unique culinary niche in this city where the West Sims Way McDonald’s is the only fast food chain to be seen. “This is healthy food. It’s quick and affordable, which is something you don’t find in this town,” owner Lani Wallace said of her eatery. Open seasonally at the corner of San Juan and F streets, Wallace began the taqueria’s third stretch of serving made-toorder tacos, burritos, salads, tostadas and quesadillas earlier this month. The business is run out of a 10-foot-by20-foot trailer on a rented lot, and its menu items are priced from $2.75 to $8.75. “This is all California style,” she said. “We don’t have crispy tacos, and the burritos aren’t all sauced up. “I’ve always loved Mexican food. I like the restaurants in town, but I wanted to offer something that wasn’t here already.”

Twin studies in 1990s warned of slide; grim search continues PENINSULA DAILY NEWS NEWS SOURCES

ARLINGTON — A scientist working for the government warned 15 years ago about the potential for a catastrophic landslide in the riverside community where the collapse of a rain-soaked hillside over the weekend killed at least 14 people and left scores missing. The death toll was expected to rise because authorities said there are more

than 170 people unaccounted for, nearly four days after the mountain slope gave way at roughly 11 a.m. Saturday. As rescue workers slogged through the muck and rain in search of victims Tuesday, word of the 1999 report raised questions about why residents were allowed to build homes below the slope and whether officials in Snohomish County had taken proper precautions. “I knew it would fail catastrophically in

a large-magnitude event,” though not when it would happen, said Daniel Miller, a geomorphologist who was hired by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to do the study. “I was not surprised.” Miller also documented the hill’s landslide conditions in a 1997 report written for the state Department of Ecology and the Tulalip Tribes. TURN



Business improving Wallace, who employs two full-time and three part-time workers, said she has operated at a break-even point but has just “turned the corner” after her recent opening. She serves about 150 meals a day to a variety of customers: “young people, old people, people riding their bikes and people coming from out of town,” she said. The stand’s location is away from downtown and doesn’t get as much tourist action as Dogs-a-Foot, a seasonal stand at the corner of Water and Madison streets, but many out-of-town customers stop in on their way to Fort Worden State Park or the Jefferson County Fairgrounds, Wallace said.

MONDAY’S QUESTION: Should Olympic National Park/National Park Service try to save the Enchanted Valley Chalet? Yes, it’s an asset

By The Associated Press

PATRICK J. MCGOVERN, 76, who started a modest database 50 years ago to track the growing use of computers and went on to build a global publishing empire that has produced scores of successful magazines and websites, including Computerworld and Macworld, died Wednesday in Palo Alto, Calif. His death was confirmed by the company he founded in 1964, now called International Data Group, or IDG. No cause was given. Under Mr. McGovern’s watch, IDG developed the popular “For Dummies” series of instructional reference books, built an international market analysis arm and began organizing huge technology events, including the annual Macworld trade shows attended by thousands. Steven P. Jobs, the founder of Apple, was often a star of the stage. Mr. McGovern, inclined to business suits rather than mock turtlenecks, was rarely onstage himself, but he was routinely on lists of American billionaires. He was often referred to as “Uncle Pat” by the thousands of employees at his company, and he was known for a determinedly human gesture in the cyberworld: traveling the planet to hand-deliver Christmas bonus checks of $500 to everyone who worked for him. Mr. McGovern was a prescient entrepreneur. He anticipated an expanding appetite for information about the computer industry when its biggest names



No, not worth cost included Univac and RCA. He was quick to expand beyond the United States, particularly in Asia, by creating locally managed subsidiaries. He broke ground as a philanthropist, too. In 2000, he and his wife, Lore Harp McGovern, gave $350 million to his alma mater, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, for the study of brain science. It remains one of the largest gifts to an American university.

_________ WU TIANMING, 74, a movie director and former studio head known as the godfather of contemporary Chinese cinema for the generation of filmmakers — including Zhang Yimou and Chen Kaige — he shepherded to international acclaim, died March 4 in Beijing. The cause was a heart attack, the Chinese news agency Xinhua said in reporting on Mr. Wu’s memorial service. As a director, Mr. Wu was known for “The Old Well” (1986), the story of a poor village’s quest for drinking water in which Zhang appears as an actor, and “The King of Masks” (1996), about an aging

street performer longing to pass on his craft. He was even better known for his work in the 1980s as chief of the Xian Film Studio, a state-run facility in the capital of the Shaanxi Province. In his half-dozen years in the post, Mr. Wu transformed the studio from a provincial operation into a cinematic hothouse, cultivating the cohort of bold young directors, often described as the “fifth generation” of Chinese filmmakers, that also included Tian Zhuangzhuang and Gu Changwei. Among the movies produced under Mr. Wu’s stewardship were some of the most critically acclaimed examples of late-20th-century world cinema: Zhang’s first film, “Red Sorghum” (1987), which depicted the hardships of peasant life in the 1930s; “The Horse Thief” (1986), a stark, haunting film about Tibetan nomads directed by Tian; and Chen’s “King of Children,” about a schoolteacher during the Cultural Revolution.

A3 Briefly: Nation Obama seeks ending NSA’s phone sweep WASHINGTON — The White House wants the National Security Agency to get out of the business of sweeping up and storing vast amounts of data on Americans’ phone calls. And a proposal to have the government seek information from phone companies’ existing records satisfies public concerns about privacy, President Barack Obama said Tuesday. The administration is expected this week to propose that Congress overhaul the electronic surveillance program to end the government’s practice of collecting the phone records of millions of Americans and holding them for five years so the data can be searched for national security purposes. Obama commented Tuesday in the Netherlands at the close of a summit on nuclear security. The White House proposal is similar to legislation members of the House Intelligence Committee introduced Tuesday. Details of the government’s secret phone records collection program were disclosed last year by former NSA contract systems analyst Edward Snowden.

Investigators said they have not yet determined whether the operator ever applied the in-cab brake.

Briefly: World China demands satellite data on Malaysia jetliner KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — China demanded Tuesday that Malaysia turn over the satellite data used to conclude that a Malaysia Airlines jetliner had crashed in the southern Indian Ocean, killing all 239 on board. Officials sharply narrowed the search area as a result of that assessment, but the zone remains as large as Texas and Oklahoma combined. Australia said improved weather would allow the hunt for the plane to resume today after gale-force winds and heavy rain forced a daylong delay. Late Monday, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak announced that a new analysis of satellite data confirmed that the plane had crashed in a remote part of the southern Indian Ocean. That announcement unleashed a storm of sorrow and anger among the families of the plane’s passengers and crew — two-thirds of them Chinese.

Justices appear to be split over health care contraceptives THE NEW YORK TIMES

WASHINGTON — In an argument that touched on medical science and moral philosophy, the Supreme Court on Tuesday wrestled with whether corporations may refuse to provide insurance coverage for contraception to their workers based on the religious beliefs of the corporations’ owners. The court seemed ready to accept that at least some for-profit corporations may advance claims based on religious freedom. But the justices appeared divided along ideological lines over whether the objections before it — based on a requirement in President Barack Obama’s health care law — should succeed. Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, who probably holds the decisive vote, asked questions helpful to both sides.

He appeared skeptical that the two family-controlled companies that objected to the contraception coverage requirement were burdened by the law, as they could cease providing health insurance at all. He also expressed solicitude for “the rights of the Kennedy employees.” But Kennedy also had reservations about whether the government could require the companies in the case to provide coverage in light of the many exemptions and accommodations it has offered to other groups. The lower courts are divided over whether corporations may object to generally applicable laws on religious liberty grounds.

Obama worried that Russia will go further More sanctions possible, no troops, he says THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

THE HAGUE, Netherlands — With no sign of Russia abandoning the Crimean Peninsula, President Barack Obama said Tuesday he’s concerned that Moscow will move deeper into Ukraine. He warned Russian President Vladimir Putin that the international community is prepared to impose punishing sanctions against his country’s economy. Obama stood fast on his insistence that Crimea remains a part of Ukraine, even as the fledgling Ukrainian government in Kiev ordered its troops to pull back from the disputed territory. He dismissed Russia as a “regional power” that was acting from a position of weakness.

‘Not recognizing’ “We’re not recognizing what is happening in Crimea,” Obama said at his first news conference since Russia annexed Crimea after a referendum 10 days ago. Obama rejected “the notion that a referendum sloppily organized over the course of two weeks” would “somehow be a valid process.” Obama said that while Russia’s military controls Crimea, its acqui-

But he also said, “It would be dishonest to suggest there is a simple solution to what has already taken place in Crimea.” “We also are concerned about further encroachment by Russia into Ukraine,” Obama said, as he took questions in a joint appearance with his host, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte. “I think that will be a bad choice for President Putin to make,” Obama said. “But ultimately he is the president of Russia, and he’s the one who’s going to be making that decision.” Obama was pursuing efforts to pressure Russia out of its aggres-

sive pose as world leaders met for an international Nuclear Security Summit. But to the east, the Russian annexation of Crimea was beginning to take root and Moscow shrugged off Obama’s drive to leave Putin in the cold. Obama also said he was concerned about Russia’s troop buildup along the Ukrainian border. “We oppose what appears to be an effort at intimidation,” Obama said. “But Russia has a right legally to have its troops on its own soil.” In a strongly worded statement, the United States, France, Canada, Britain, Germany, Italy and Japan denounced the referendum in Crimea to secede from Ukraine and Russia’s ensuing annexation.

Troops withdraw — on buses THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

FEODOSIA, Crimea — Giving last-minute kisses to wives and girlfriends, Ukrainian marines in Crimea piled into buses Tuesday to head back to the mainland. Former comrades saluted them from outside a base that has been overrun by Russian forces. It was a low-key exit from the eastern port of Feodosia, with fewer than a dozen friends or relatives on hand to bid the marines farewell.

Quick Read

A troop transporter bearing black Russian military plates trailed the bus as it pulled away. Their departure came as Ukraine’s defense minister stepped down Tuesday after harsh criticism for authorities’ often-hesitant reaction to Russia’s annexation of Crimea, which was formalized following a hastily organized referendum this month. And while Ukraine struggled to deal with its humbling by Russia, it also faced the menace of seething Ukrainian nationalists

angered by the police killing of a leading radical. Troops were given the stark choice of staying in Crimea and switching to work for Russia or leaving the peninsula to keep their jobs with Ukraine. So far, 131 Ukrainian marines have left Crimea, the defense ministry said. They are going to be stationed temporarily at a military barracks in the southern town of Genichesk, but their final destination is still unclear.

West: Federal court keeps San Francisco anti-gun laws

Nation: Coast Guard partially reopens channel

World: Fire razes 6,000 stalls in Guatemala market

World: Canada to retire train cars linked to blast

A FEDERAL APPEALS court unanimously upheld the constitutionality Tuesday of two San Francisco laws that regulate gun storage and ammunition. A three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the city had adequately justified an ordinance that requires gun owners to keep weapons either stored in a locked container or disabled with a trigger lock when not carried. Gun owners sued San Francisco in 2009 to overturn that law, arguing that they needed to keep their weapons ready to fire for self-protection in their homes.

THE COAST GUARD partially reopened one of the nation’s busiest seaports to ship traffic Tuesday, three days after a collision between a barge and a ship spilled up to 170,000 gallons of tar-like oil into the waters south of Houston. Authorities said ships were being allowed through the Houston Ship Channel after their assessment teams deemed it was clear enough for passage. More than 100 ships on both sides of the channel were awaiting the reopening. The oil spill happened Saturday when a barge carrying 900,000 gallons collided with a ship.

FIRE DEVOURED THOUSANDS of stalls in a market in Guatemala City early Tuesday, state media reported. Authorities haven’t determined what caused the fire, which broke out around 2:30 a.m. in La Terminal market. The fire destroyed approximately 6,000 stalls in the market, the state-run AGN news agency reported. Volunteer firefighters said they struggled to battle the blaze due to a shortage of water in the area, adding that they had difficulty persuading vendors to leave their stalls. “People often stay to sleep in their posts,” Guatemala City Mayor Alvaro Arzu said. “They have gas tanks there.”

CANADIAN NATIONAL RAILWAY said it will phase out the type of tank cars involved in the Quebec train derailment last summer that killed 47. CN Rail Chief Executive Claude Mongeau said Tuesday its fleet of 183 DOT-111 tank cars will be retired over four years. CN is Canada’s largest railway. He said car design was “one of the most important systematic issues” arising from last summer’s railway explosion in Lac-Megantic, Quebec. The Association of American Railroads recently recommended the retrofitting or phase-out of the old cars used to transport flammable liquids.

Panel approves per diem raise for senators BY RACHEL LA CORTE THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OLYMPIA — A Senate committee voted Tuesday to give an extra $30 a day to senators and an additional $10 daily increase to legislative assistants while the Legislature is in session. The bipartisan Senate Facilities and Operations Committee voted 4-3 to approve the increase, with Republican Sen. Don Benton, the committee’s chairman, casting the deciding vote in support. Also voting in support were: Sens. Karen Fraser, D-Olympia, Brian Hatfield, D-Raymond, and Senate Minority Leader Sharon Nelson, D-Maury Island. Senate Majority Leader Rodney Tom, D-Medina, and Sens. Mark Schoesler, R-Ritzville, and Linda Evans Parlette, R-Wenatchee, all voted against the measure. The Senate vote also increases legislative assistant per diems from $30 a day to $40 a day. All except Fraser participated in the meeting by

conference call. The move follows action taken earlier this year by the House to increase representatives’ daily stipend — known as a per diem — from $90 a day to $120 a day. That vote was retroactive, so House lawmakers received an increase of $1,800 during this year’s 60-day session, which ended March 13.

Effective April 1 The Senate vote is effective April 1, but the increase will only be added while lawmakers are in session. Next year’s legislative session is scheduled for 105 days, which means that lawmakers will see a $3,150 increase. Tuesday’s vote was the first Senate perdiem increase since 2005, when it increased from $82 to $90 a day. Fraser, who made the motion for the per-diem increase, noted that she doesn’t take a per diem during session, and she said that other lawmakers could similarly choose to not take the increase if they wanted.

No official support on schools measure



Zoning OK’d for pot shops in Sequim BY JOE SMILLIE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

Sequim council says ‘it’s up to the voters’ to OK BY JOE SMILLIE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

SEQUIM –– The City Council has refused to offer an official endorsement of the Sequim School District’s $154 million construction bond request, as was requested by backers of the April 22 ballot measure. The council did, however, approve an unofficial statement in “general support” of the district’s request, as most council members expressed personal support for the measure. “It’s up to the voters of the school district to make this decision, not this council,” Councilman Erik Erichsen said. Erichsen, along with council members Ted Miller, Dennis Smith and Genaveve Starr, voted not to issue the official resolution in support of the measure at Monday night’s council session. Mayor Candace Pratt, Councilman Ken Hays and Councilwoman Laura Dubois voted to issue the endorsement. “We’re partners with the school district, and I think we owe them this,” Pratt said.

Unofficial statement The council later voted 6-1, with Erichsen again in dissent, to issue a statement saying the “city council offers general support to the Sequim School District in seeking voter approval to fund the acknowledged need for districtwide improvements to its education facilities.” The district is asking for the bond to fund construction of a new elementary school, an extensive remodel and renovation of the high school and two existing elementary schools, and build a new athletic complex. If approved, the bonds would add approximately $1.70 per $1,000 of assessed value to the property tax bills of property owners in the district, which has a total assessed property value of $3.7 billion. The bond would add $425 to the annual property tax bill of the owner of a $250,000 home. Ballots are set to be mailed to district voters April 2.

Citizens speak up

Votes in favor Hays, Mayor Candace Pratt and Councilwomen Laura Dubois and Genaveve Starr voted in favor of the zoning restrictions, which are only valid if the city lifts the temporary ban. Councilmen Erik Erichsen, Ted Miller and Dennis Smith voted against the new zoning laws. Sequim voters gave 52 percent approval to Initiative 502, which passed in Clallam County by 55 percent and in Jefferson County by 65 percent on its way to statewide approval in the November 2012 election. In the one-month window the state gave entrepreneurs to apply for pot licenses, the Liquor Control Board received five retail, one processor and no producer applications for inside Sequim’s city limit. The state allocated one retail pot store for Sequim. No licenses have been approved yet by the liquor board for the North Olympic Peninsula. Miller worried the liquor board might up that number if there is greater demand for recreational pot. “It’s one today. It could be any number tomorrow,” he said.

Federal allegiance Erichsen said he voted against the zoning laws because of the federal prohibition on marijuana, noting he pledged allegiance to the U.S. flag at the start of Monday’s meeting, which pre-empts state law. “You’re sworn to uphold the laws of Washington, one of which is 502,” Judith Parker of Sequim said, one of several citizen speakers who cited the oath of office administered to council members. Federal officials have said they will let Washington and Colorado legalize marijuana despite the federal prohibition as long as they keep it tightly regulated. “I’m sorry we have federal officials who do not wish to support our laws,” Erichsen said. The council will review the moratorium April 28, city attorney Craig Ritchie said. David Mattingley hailed the temporary ban, saying it gives the city time to review the implications of legal pot before it “falls down this rabbit hole.” However, Anthony Owen owner of the Karma Wellness Cooperative in Port Angeles, said the ban has kept him from opening a shop in Sequim, where he estimated 400 of his 1,000 patients live. “We would like to operate within the city limits, but that is not possible with the moratorium in place,” Owen said. Dubois said she wanted to leave the ban in place to determine the additional costs legal pot may cause for the city. we have buildings that are older than the City Hall that’s set to be demolished.” Michael McAleer, a local real estate agent, said the school’s tax levy rate if the construction bond is approved would be $3.85 per $1,000 assessed value, below the state average levy of $4.44. Others, though, urged the council not to weigh in on the school district’s funding request. “The council as a body should represent interests of all and should not adopt a resolution in support of, nor against, the proposition but let the electoral process run its course,” Sequim resident Jeff Killian said. Starr said she had heard similar sentiment from citizens expressing a concern that an endorsement from the council “puts pressure on them.” Miller agreed. “I don’t feel the City Council as a body has a right to substitute the will of the voters,” Miller said. “This is a school district issue.”

“We are not taking anyone’s vote away from them,” Pratt responded. “We’ve done this before.” In February 2013, the council unanimously approved a resolution in favor of the school district’s four-year, $5.8 million-ayear operations levy and one-year, $1.6 million bus replacement levy. Erichsen said this time around, he could not agree to a council position on the matter. “We are giving pressure and influence to the voters that we, as a council, as a governing body, accept it, think it’s a good idea,” Erichsen said.

A number of citizens asked the council to endorse the bond prior to the vote Monday night. “I want to express our general support of a good school system,” said Richard Newman, chief human resources officer for Olympic Medical Center.

SEQUIM –– State-licensed marijuana shops will be limited to the dense commercial districts at the east and west ends of Washington Street, though they won’t be able to set up just yet as a temporary ban on establishing pot businesses remains in place. The City Council put a six-month moratorium on pot shops Feb. 24 and left it there during Monday night’s council meeting despite approving on a split 4-3 vote new regulations that would restrict where pot shops could locate in the city. The zoning rules do not allow pot to be grown or processed in Sequim. Councilman Ken Hays called for the council to approve the zoning restrictions, saying they would give the city control over the “inevitable” establishment of pot businesses. “If we do nothing, then we lose control,” Hays said.

PORT ANGELES — Four men arrested following a pair of alleged assaults and a robbery at a west Port Angeles RV park have been charged in Clallam County Superior Court. The charges stem from the case of Joshua Allen Cabe, 26, of Forks; Ordez Eugene Kompkoff, 19, of Port Angeles; and Zachary Michael Taylor, 20, of Port Angeles, all of whom at 12:07 a.m. March 18 allegedly forced their way into the trailer of Daniel Joseph Jenkins, 21, attacked him and made off with numerous items, including his computer, cellphone, cash and the shoes off his feet.

Budget changes

The county revises its budget with supplemental appropriations, budget reductions and debatable emergencies every quarter. Commissioners opened their weekly business meeting with a proclamation recognizing Sunday as Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day. The March 30 observance, which was spearheaded by Port Angeles Army Vietnam veteran Norman Goodin in 2009 and proclaimed statewide by former Gov. Chris Gregoire in 2010, marks the anniversary of the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Vietnam in 1973. “This proclamation is the welcome home we didn’t get at the end of the war when we came back after our tours,� Goodin said. “It was pretty bad, I can tell you that.� Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day became a federal observance in 2011. Goodin, who served in Vietnam in 1967 and 1968, received a standing ovation after accepting the county proclamation. “What you started will continue,� board Chairman Mike Chapman told Goodin. “I assume that future boards will gladly pass this proclamation every year in honor of all the Vietnam veterans.� The annual Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day ceremony is set for 1 p.m. Sunday at the Clallam County Veterans Center, 216 S.

Clallam declares pistols surplus, will allow sale BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — Clallam County commissioners have declared four Glock 22 .40-caliber pistols as surplus property, clearing the way for their purchase by the same law enforcement officials who carried them on the job. The 3-0 Tuesday vote gives four retired sheriff’s deputies the option of purchasing the sidearms at the manufacturer’s trade-in price. “These are four sidearms that deputies carried for the duration of their career,� said Ron Cameron, chief criminal deputy, in a public hearing. “All four deputies retired in good standing after long careers. . . . I believe all four have expressed an interest in these weapons.� Commissioners last

month approved a policy amendment that allows a commissioned deputy who retires in good standing the option of purchasing his or her career service handgun from the county. Proceeds from the sales would go to the county general fund. Undersheriff Ron Peregrin has said the policy ensures that the sidearm will remain in responsible hands. “This is a two-stage process,� County Administrator Jim Jones said. “This is the formal declaration of surplus. This is not the awarding to the deputies. That’s been done with a change in policy making that an option later. “But first, we have to do the declaration of surplus property.� No member of the public testified in the public hear-

Kompkoff, who was still in jail Tuesday on $30,000 bond, was charged with the same crimes as Taylor. Kompkoff pleaded not guilty Tuesday and is set to face a May 19 trial, with a case status hearing set for April 18, according to Superior Court documents.



Jesse Espinoza, the county deputy prosecuting attorney assigned to the case, said the theft of a motor vehicle count stems from Taylor and Kompkoff allegedly taking the 2002 Volkswagen Jetta that Cabe had been driving March 18.

Write a check directly to the charity, not the fundraiser. ■ Never give out credit card numbers over

the telephone. ■Be wary of “new� charities. ■ Watch out for fake “victim� or memorial social media accounts.

That includes about 38,000 who make the state-mandated minimum wage of $9.32 an hour. If workers who now make between $15 and $18 an hour also got a pay raise, then the change could affect nearly a third of Seattle’s workforce. The UW report is scheduled to be presented today to the Seattle mayor’s Income Inequality Advisory Committee. Peninsula Daily News and The Associated Press

Horsemen mount up for fest parade THE BRITISH ARE coming! As usual, I was clueless. I had no idea the riders and horses standing before me were a cavalry ready to repel the British invasion from British Columbia until their leader, Gordon Frye, clued me in. “We are the Jefferson County Mounted Militia, and we are ready to fight the big war,� said Frye with a stern face. I have to say he certainly looked ready and very smart in his red cap and black military uniform with its flowing cape. His small but mighty cavalry of seven looked ready to follow him, too, but I’m not sure they were battle-ready. They were, however, crowd-pleasers. The cavalry, which included two people I know, Buckhorn Range Back Country Horsemen member Juelanne Dalzell and young Jefferson County Mounties 4-H’s Rachel Doan, won many hearts with their drill team maneuvers as they paraded down main street Port Townsend last Saturday morning for the city’s Victorian Heritage Festival. The official start time was 10:30 a.m., but if you didn’t get there 10 minutes earlier, you missed it. Frye was apologetic to those who arrived on time only to see them finishing. “We mounted up as planned at 10:20, expecting to wait on our horse until start time, but when the police officer directing traffic saw us mounted, he stopped the cars and told us to go.� In spite of the glitch, the equestrians had a fun time, gave a good performance and stayed after to let

PENINSULA HORSEPLAY onlookers pet their Griffiths horses and answer questions. Hopefully, they will be back again next year and it can include members of the high school equestrian teams who were at their third and final Washington State High School Equestrian Team meet (the results will be in my next column).


Rescued horses Agnew’s Kelsie Wilson recently rescued three young horses, ages 7 years, 8 years and 6 months, she discovered “so thin you can count every bone in their body.� Kelsie, a young woman who’s grown up with horses, 4-H and as an avid barrel racer, is doing a good job nursing them back to health. Her big heart doesn’t include a large pocketbook, though, so I applaud her for reaching out to our community for help in paying for vet care (the oldest is in dire need of dental work) and the necessary extra feed, vitamins and supplements to get them healthy.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Wednesday, March 26, 2014 PAGE


Delightful fishing on ink blot river YOU PROBABLY THOUGHT the state of Washington was run by a power-mad cabal of self-serving, pencil-pushing, pocket-lining functionaries whose only purpose is to make our lives miserable. You didn’t know that the Pat government also has a keen Neal sense of humor, irony and revenge. Why else would it insist that we get our new fishing license and punch cards on April Fools’ Day? The money from punch-card sales goes to support many worthwhile government programs, like the advanced stateof-the-art computer systems that are required to administer punch-card sales. Punch cards also provide vital funding for the latest scientific

research that might someday allow the state to design a punch card the average angler can figure out. The punch cards are a vital part of the Fish Cop Employment Security Act, which allows them the opportunity to write tickets anytime and anywhere. The law says you are to immediately record your catch in ink, with the catch and location code. For the steelhead angler, this can be a real challenge. Imagine standing in a freezing river in leaking boots in a blizzard. In the unlikely event you were lucky enough to catch a winter steelhead, you must now fill out your punch card. First you must find a pen. This could involve an extensive search of your pockets, which is difficult when your hands are so cold they have lost all feeling. By the time you have found a pen, your exposed punch card has gotten wet. Getting the ink to stick to wet

paper can be as difficult as hooking and reeling in a trophy steelhead. You could write the name of the river to record your catch but that would be too easy. Instead, there is a secret code for each river. The river codes might be included in a secret document that may or may not have been included with your fishing license, or perhaps you can find the codes buried in the depths of the 150page fishing rules pamphlet.

By now, your punch card is soaked. Your pen is frozen. You try to thaw the pen, but this is difficult because your fingers are frozen. You try to write the name of the river in the space provided, and end up with something that looks like an ink blot. Filling out a salmon punch card is no picnic, either. Imagine bouncing in a heavy swell out in the salt-chuck while trying to fight down a force-10 case of sea-sickness. You catch a salmon anyway. The salmon punch card requires you to determine what species you caught along with whether the fish has a clipped fin or not. Determining the species of a salmon can be as difficult as catching one. With blurred vision and a shaking hand, you scribble something on your punch card that looks like an ink blot. Filling out a crab punch card should be easy, but it is not. Imagine wading out to the top

OUR READERS’ LETTERS, FAXES Climate change The Flat Earth Society is still around. A March 17 letter [“Warming ‘Doubts,’” Peninsula Voices] argued that the scientific community has not “already settled the climate change question.” The basis is an online petition by skeptics. The petition was so misleading that the National Academy of Sciences issued a news release stating: “The petition was not based on a review of the science of global climate change, nor were its signers experts in the field of climate science.” Thing is, even though 99 percent of all peer-reviewed scientific papers agree that climate change is happening, we don’t have to believe anyone but ourselves. Just look around — our air and oceans are warming, our glaciers, ice packs and snowfields are melting, we see unprecedented droughts,

of your boots to try to scoop up a crab. Just as you grab your crab, some joker in a power boat roars by at top speed, sending a tsunamisized wake your way. You, your punch card and your pen are now soaked in salt water. You eventually smear an ink blot on your punch card. Theoretically, the punch cards are returned to the state beancounters, who interpret the meaning of the ink blots with a secret method not unlike the interpretation of the Rorschach Inkblot Test. So have a happy April Fools’ Day! Why not? The joke is on you.

wildfires, floods, rising sea levels, ocean acidification and catastrophic weather events. If no action is taken, potential costs in Washington from climate change impacts are projected to reach nearly $10 billion per year by 2020 from increased health costs, storm damage, coastal destruction, rising energy costs, increased wildfires, drought, and other impacts (Western Climate Leadership Initiative, 2010). We all are custodians of our resources for us, our children and their children. It’s time we owned up to our responsibilities. A good start would be to personally embrace the pledge endorsed by our local Olympic Climate Action organization, which reads: “I will support and give my vote to candidates who commit to take concrete, timely action to reduce climate-disrupting activities.” And join OCA at http:// Bob Lynette, Sequim

A better name [This letter is] regarding the front-page article in the PDN on March 20, “Court Next for Water Rule?” Why does a group that is trying to develop more land along the Dungeness River and use more water call itself the Olympic Resource Protection Council? It should call itself the Olympic Water Use Council or the Dungeness Development Council, so people would understand what it is all about. It’s good that the [state] Department of Ecology denied its request to rework the water rule, which is to reduce water use. Dungeness River water is limited, especially when salmon are migrating upstream in late summer and early fall. Edwin R. Johnson, Port Angeles

ONP seems resigned to let chalet die OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK officials would like you to share your memories of the Enchanted Valley Chalet on the park’s Facebook page. They are asking that you Seabury send in your photos and per- Blair Jr. sonal stories of the chalet. That is good, because unless something is done immediately to save the chalet, photos and stories are all that we will have of this retreat, located in the midst of Olympic National Park wilderness and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In a news release last week from park spokeswoman Barb Maynes, it appears the park is preparing to let the chalet begin a soggy float down the North Fork of the Quinault River. “This winter’s storms and high flows have resulted in the Quinault’s main channel to shift by at least 15 feet in the past three months,” the release said. “As of late last week, the river

has undercut the chalet by approximately 4 feet.” The release noted that a park crew “assessed and documented the chalet’s condition and removed equipment, supplies and hazardous materials. “The building’s windows were also removed to both prevent glass from impacting the river and downstream natural resources and to preserve elements of the historic building.” Let’s ignore the reference to “hazardous materials” being stored in a building that is 13 miles by boot trail from a road and at least 20 miles from the nearest emergency response facility. Instead, we should all thank the park crew for saving the downstream natural resources from all that broken glass. I imagine that in the not-toodistant-future, we will be able to view an interpretive display of chalet windows in some Olympic National Park visitor center: “These are all that remains of the historic Enchanted Valley Chalet, which was tragically swept down the Quinault River in April 2014.” What is truly disturbing to me is the park’s benign neglect.

Officer, Pacific West Regional Office of the National Park Service and concerned organizations and citizens.” Call me an ancient fuddyduddy with nothing positive to contribute, but here’s how I interpret that statement: “Park staff will continue to meet with interested partners until the chalet ceases to be an issue and sinks into the Quinault River.” I figure that for the park bureaucrats, it’s all about meetings and carefully analyzing the situation. I can’t imagine the National Park Service making a decision on anything without studying it for at least a year. JOHN MYERS By that time, I’m guessing the The Enchanted Valley Chalet, now threatened by the North Enchanted Valley Chalet — or whatever is left of it — will be Fork of the Quinault River, was originally built more than somewhere between Pyrites 500 feet from the river’s edge eight decades ago — Creek and Lake Quinault. before creation of Olympic National Park.

Razor clam digging starts today in state



TACOMA — The state Department of Fish and Wildlife says morning clam digging on Washington’s beaches begins today. The News Tribune reported that the first morning clam digging of the season coincides with the first low tides. Diggers will have to buy a 2014 license to participate in digs after this Monday. Wildlife officials say digging is best an hour or two before low tide. Digging begins today in Twin Harbors. Long Beach and Mocrocks are added to the list Friday.


The 2014 Sequim Irrigation Festival float is rolled out Saturday evening at 7 Cedars Casino in Blyn just before the annual kickoff dinner at the casino. The royal court and onlookers got their first look at the float created by Dan Rigg, who is seen driving.

B Golf

Teams win by being steady CONSISTENCY CAN BE a blessing or a curse in the game of golf. A blessing if Michael you have a repeatable swing Carman that can get you through a round and home safely, a curse if you are doomed to repeat the same mistakes over and over again during play. The good kind of consistency is what our area high school golf coaches attempt to impart each spring. Members of the Port Angeles and Chimacum boys golf teams took those lessons to heart last season, taking home Olympic League and Nisqually League championships, respectively. Coaching consistency, i.e. having the same coach doing the instruction each year also is a big part of a program’s success. Teams that go through coaches like the University of Oregon athletic teams go through uniforms typically struggle. That’s why it’s nice to see coaches stick around and last for decades like Mitch Black at Chimacum (37 years); Mark Mitrovich at Port Angeles (28 years) and Gabriel Tonan at Port Townsend (14th year). Sequim coach Bill Shea is the relative newcomer at four years, which by Peninsula coaching standards counts as a long time. Good luck to the teams this season and thanks to the courses that help to grow the game for junior golfers.

Port Angeles boys ■ Coach: Mark Mitrovich, 28th year. ■ Last year: The Roughriders were undefeated Olympic League champions (8-0) and finished fourth overall at the Class 2A state championship. It was the best finish in Mitrovich’s long tenure as the Port Angeles head coach. Departed senior Joe Barnes, a two-time Olympic League MVP, finished in a tie for 15th place to pace the Riders, while fellow senior Garrett Payton tied for 25th and current junior Alex Atwell tied for 29th. Departed senior Austin Underwood and current senior Micah Needham advanced to state but missed the cut. ■ Top returners: Atwell is the Port Angeles No. 1, shooting in the mid to high 30s in practice and carding a 39 in the team’s opening match victory over Kingston last week at White Horse Golf Club. “Alex hits the ball a long ways, really steady and he works at Peninsula Golf Club so he played a lot during the offseason,” Mitrovich said. “He has good touch around the greens and can roll [putt] the ball really well.” Needham has worked on his short game in the offseason and is capable of shooting in the 30’s. “He’s fired up to get back to state, make the second round and place,” Mitrovich said. Other returners include juniors Alex Brown and Mason Jackson. Brown is a lanky 6-foot- 3 player who “has been coming on lately,” according to Mitrovich. Jackson was described as the team’s most improved player so far this year going from scoring in the mid-90s to the mid 80s and becoming a “likely suspect for state,” Mitrovich said. “He worked a lot on his chipping and his swing is just much smoother, it’s a night and day difference.” TURN



Redskins top Eagles PT defeats Klahowya for 1st win PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT TOWNSEND — The Port Townsend softball team earned its first win of the year by routing Klahowya 10-1 at Blue Heron Middle School. “Defensively, we were very solid and each game our hitting has improved immensely,” Redskins coach Kelli Parcher said. Port Townsend pitchers Gen Polizzi and Megan Lee combined to hold the Eagles to one run. At the plate, Rilke Rutenbeck went 3 for 4 and Malia Henderson was 3 for 3. The Redskins (0-2) play at Kingston (2-1) today.

Port Angeles 15, Olympic 3 SILVERDALE — Ashlee Reid was 4 for 5 with a homer, two triples, five RBIs and three runs scored as the Roughriders trounced the Trojans. “We crushed the ball at the plate, played solid defense and our pitchers were hitting their spots,” Port Angeles coach Randy Steinman said. The Riders scored eight runs in the first two innings and added a six-spot in the sixth inning. Haley Gray was 3 for 5 with four RBIs, Tori Kuch was 3 for 4, Cara Cristion was 2 for 4 and Carly Gouge was 2 for 5 with a triple. Sarah Steinman earned the win, allowing just two hits and no runs in five innings and striking out eight. Port Angeles (1-0, 1-2) hosts North Mason on Friday.

Hawks play waiting game with Allen BY JOHN BOYLE THE [EVERETT] HERALD


Jared Allen visited the Seahawks twice last week and has yet to make a decision about joining the Super Bowl champions.

RENTON — Jared Allen apparently needed more than just the weekend to come to a decision. The Seahawks are still waiting to hear from the free agent defensive end, who visited twice with the team last week. Allen’s agent told reporters Friday that his client was going to consider the Seattle Seahawks’ offer over the weekend, but Allen still hadn’t made up his mind — or at least made his decision known — as of Tuesday afternoon. Earlier in the week, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll was on SiriusXM, and said there was nothing new to report. “It’s a big business decision for him, so there’s really not much to comment about right now,” Carroll said.

Wolf made five starts this spring and had a 4.26 ERA in 19 innings. On Monday, the Mariners released pitcher Scott Baker. The 32-year-old right-hander asked for his release after refusing an assignment to Triple-A Tacoma. Baker was 1-1 with a 6.75 ERA in four spring training starts for Seattle, allowing nine earned runs and 16 hits in 12 innings.

DEAR ABBY: I have been married almost 20 years. Eight years ago, my wife began an emotional affair with a co-worker. It lasted a year, until he left the company. Although they never had sex, they did have some physical contact that most people would consider inappropriate, and my wife considered ending our marriage because of the feelings she had for him. She now says the episode was a huge mistake and that she loves me more than ever. The problem is, she wrote many entries about him in a journal. I know she kept writing about him several years after they lost contact, including saying that she loved him more than a year after he’d left. I want my wife to remove the portions of the journal pertaining to this guy. She doesn’t want to. I’m still hurting from this and am considering counseling, but for now, what do you think? Should she get rid of the journal? Considering Counseling

Dear Grieving: Although you and Maggie weren’t legally married, you were a couple for some time. I’m very sorry for your loss. It would be accurate to refer to her as your late significant other, your partner or longtime girlfriend. I would like to compliment you for stepping up to care for the girl when her biological father did not. And I do have suggestions for how to respond to anyone insensitive enough to ask why you would “take on” a child you didn’t “have to.” The first would be to ignore the question. The second would be to avoid such a person in the future, and the third would be to reply, “I love her like a daughter, want to make sure she’s secure and provided for, and that’s why I’m doing it.”

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Look, see and follow through. Your charismatic approach will win favors and bring you good fortune. Do whatever it takes to improve your quality of living and your relationship with someone you love. A change will motivate and inspire you. 3 stars

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Take action and follow through to honor a promise made. Someone may let you down, but that doesn’t mean you should lower your standards or do the same thing. Show off what you have to offer and you will make gains. 4 stars

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Broaden your knowledge and your connections. Take part in a function that will add to your experience and bring you in touch with people who are beneficial. Don’t let love or an emotional situation stand in your way. 2 stars

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Get involved in projects and humanitarian causes you believe in. Your insight and tenacity will put you in a key position that will boost your confidence and help you gain respect from influential people. Press on and let your talents shine. 3 stars

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Make sure you’re stepping forward. Focus on finishing what you start and living up to your word. You’ll be disappointed if you count on someone to come through for you. Do what needs doing and don’t lose your resolve. 3 stars

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Stand up for your beliefs. Make decisions based on your needs. Don’t allow anyone to interfere or force you in a direction not suited to your goals. Follow the path you feel most comfortable with and you will be successful. 3 stars by Hank Ketcham

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Favors will be granted. Mingle and you will meet people who can help you advance. Take on a physical challenge and you will feel good about the way you look and feel. Children and elders will offer insight and honesty. 4 stars

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Get ready to make a move. Idle time will lead to confusion. Re-evaluate and take action. Love is on the rise, and the opportunity to see into someone’s world or cultural background will help you make an important decision. 5 stars

gery. Complications set in, and I lost the only person who ever mattered, aside from our little girl. My question is, since we were never married, how do I refer to Maggie when relating what hap-

pened? I am in the process of adopting her daughter, and explanations to strangers are tough. (“Wow, you’re taking on a child when you don’t have to?”) How do I respond to these remarks? I know this is a multi-part question, but I have so many unanswered questions lately, I figured I’d ask you for an opinion. Grieving in Missouri

Dear Abby: I’m a 47-year-old man who was single until seven years ago. Then I met “Maggie,” the most wonderful woman I had ever known. She wasn’t the hotsy-totsy onenighter type I was used to.

Maggie had wrestled with some health issues — nothing serious until last April, when she had sur-

Dear Considering Counseling: Because you are still hurting seven years after the fact, stop “considering” counseling and get it now. If your wife is a serious journal writer — and many people are — that she would want her writings to remain intact in spite of the fact they reflect her emotional affair is not unusual. If that’s the case, instead of insisting she edit or destroy her journal, my advice is to stop reading it.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Network and let your social skills influence the caliber of person you attract. Collaborating with someone who has as much to bring to the table as you will result in a fruitful future. Love and romance are in the stars. 5 stars SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Listen carefully and head in the direction that makes the most sense. You can’t please everyone, and in this case, suffering a loss to appease someone is foolish. Once you reach your destination, re-evaluate some of your relationships. 2 stars

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Show your enthusiasm and you will create a buzz. Showing interest in what others do will help you gain the support you need to follow through with your own plans.

Look at the pros and cons before you implement a change that may leave you in a vulnerable position. 3 stars

E-cig liquid presents own woes Solution highly poisonous to small children BY MATT RICHTEL THE NEW YORK TIMES

A dangerous new form of a powerful stimulant is hitting markets nationwide, for sale by the vial, the gallon and even the barrel. The drug is nicotine, in its potent, liquid form — extracted from tobacco and tinctured with a cocktail of flavorings, colorings and assorted chemicals to feed the fastgrowing electronic cigarette industry. These “e-liquids,” the key ingredients in e-cigarettes, are powerful neurotoxins. Tiny amounts, whether ingested or absorbed through the skin, can cause vomiting and seizures and even be lethal. A teaspoon of even highly diluted e-liquid can kill a small child.


A liquid nicotine solution is poured into a vaping device known as an e-cigarette. But, like e-cigarettes, e-liquids are not regulated by federal authorities. They are mixed on factory floors and in the back rooms of shops, and sold legally in stores and online in small bottles that are kept casually around the house for regular refilling of e-cigarettes. Evidence of the potential dan-

gers is already emerging. Toxicologists warn that e-liquids pose a significant risk to public health, particularly to children, who may be drawn to their bright colors and fragrant flavorings like cherry, chocolate and bubble gum. “It’s not a matter of if a child will be seriously poisoned or killed,” said Lee Cantrell, director of the San Diego division of the California Poison Control System and a professor of pharmacy at the University of California, San Francisco. “It’s a matter of when.”

Accidental poisonings Reports of accidental poisonings, notably among children, are soaring. Since 2011, there appears to have been one death in the United States, a suicide by an adult who injected nicotine. Nationwide, the number of cases linked to e-liquids jumped to 1,351 in 2013, a 300 percent increase from 2012, and the number is on pace to double this year, according to information from the

National Poison Data System. Of the cases in 2013, 365 were referred to hospitals, triple the previous year’s number. Examples come from across the country. Last month, a 2-year-old girl in Oklahoma City drank a small bottle of a parent’s nicotine liquid, started vomiting and was rushed to an emergency room. That case and age group is considered typical. Of the 74 e-cigarette and nicotine poisoning cases called into Minnesota poison control in 2013, 29 involved children age 2 and younger. In Oklahoma, all but two of the 25 cases in the first two months of this year involved children age 4 and younger. In terms of the immediate poison risk, e-liquids are far more dangerous than tobacco because the liquid is absorbed more quickly, even in diluted concentrations. But e-liquids are now available almost everywhere. “It is sold all over the place. It is ubiquitous in society,” Cantrell said.

New area jobs, but jobless rate rises BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

The North Olympic Peninsula added 160 jobs in February but unemployment rates climbed slightly in Clallam and Jefferson counties, the state Employment Security Department reported Tuesday. Clallam County added 150 jobs — 130 in the private sector and 20 in government — as unemployment rose from a revised 9.1 percent in January to a preliminary 9.8 percent last month. Jefferson County added 20 government jobs but shed 10 in the private sector, as unemployment went from 8.7 percent in January to 9.4 percent in February, accord-

ing to estimates derived from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Unemployment rates can differ from trends in the number of jobs gained or lost because of changes in the size of the labor force and because of people who commute to other counties for work, Employment Security regional labor economist Jim Vleming has said.

Force grows Clallam County’s labor force expanded by 300 residents — from 26,990 to 27,290 — in February. That number includes 2,690 who were actively seeking work. Jobless rates don’t count those who have stopped looking for a job.

The Clallam County employment breakdown shows a rebound in the service trades with 150 jobs added in February. Clallam County lost 190 service-providing jobs in January. Clallam County added 20 jobs in natural resources and mining but shed 20 in manufacturing last month. Meanwhile, Jefferson County’s labor force grew by 30 residents in February to 11,230. The workforce included 1,050 active job-seekers. Jefferson County added 30 manufacturing jobs in February but lost 20 jobs in trade, transportation and utilities, 10 in information and financial activities and 10 in leisure and hospitality.

Home prices dip

Unemployment rates were about 1 percentage point higher in both counties 13 months ago, at 10.7 percent in Clallam County and 10.8 percent in Jefferson County. Statewide unemployment remained at 6.4 percent last month, while the seasonallyadjusted national unemployment rate went from 6.6 percent in January to 6.7 percent in February, Employment Security said. King County had the lowest unemployment in the state at 5.2 percent in February. Pend Oreille County in the northeast corner of the state had the highest estimated jobless rate at 12.6 percent.

WASHINGTON — U.S. home prices dipped in January for a third straight month. The Standard & Poor’s/CaseShiller 20-city home price index, released Tuesday, declined 0.1 percent from December to January, the same drop as the previous two months. That figure is not adjusted for seasonal variations, so the dip partly reflects weaker winter sales.

Gold, silver Gold for April delivery rose 20 cents, or 0.2 percent, to $1,311.40 an ounce Tuesday. May silver shed 7 cents, or 0.08 percent, to end at $19.97 an ounce. The Associated Press

Anyone having any objection to the sale on any grounds whatsoever will be afforded an opportunity to be heard as to those objections if they bring a lawsuit to restrain the sale pursuant to RCW 61.24.130. Failure to bring such a lawsuit may result in a waiver of any proper grounds for invalidating the Trustee’s sale. X. NOTICE TO OCCUPANTS OR TENANTS The purchaser at the Trustee’s Sale is entitled to possession of the property on the 20th day following the sale, as against the Grantor under the Deed of Trust (the owner) and anyone having an interest junior to the Deed of Trust, including occupants other than tenants. After the 20th day following the sale the purchaser has the right to evict occupants other than tenants by summary proceedings under the Unlawful Detainer Act, Chapter 59.12 RCW. Pursuant to the Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act of 2009, a tenant or subtenant in possession of the property that is purchased at the trustee’s sale, under any bona fide lease entered into before the notice of foreclosure, has the right to occupy the property until the end of the remaining term of the lease, except that the purchaser (or a successor in interest) who will occupy the property as a primary residence may terminate the lease by giving written notice to the tenant at least ninety (90) days before the effective date of such notice.
