Brinnon man logged old-growth timber BY PAUL GOTTLIEB PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
TACOMA â€” A Brinnon logger must pay $84,000 in restitution to the U.S. Forest Service for poaching 102 trees, including a 350-year-old Douglas fir, from Olympic National Forest. U.S. District â€œThe old-growth Court Judge RobJ. Bryan took trees damaged by ert more than the the defendant . . . treesâ€™ market value consideration were undeniably into when, on Tuesday, unique.â€? he ordered Reid B. JENNY DURKAN Johnston, 41, to U.S. attorney cover the cost of the damage he inflicted both ecologically and economically. â€œJudge Bryan agreed with the government that there is an ecological value in the trees that were stolen beyond the market value of the timber,â€? said Emily Langlie, spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorneyâ€™s Office for the Western District of Washington. The trees were poached in the Rocky Brook area of the Dosewallips drainage near Brinnon between May 2009 and January 2010. Their market value was $69,000, Langlie said.
Sentenced to a year and a day Johnston pleaded guilty in November to thefts of fir, cedar and maple trees, and was sentenced in December to a year and a day in jail, with credit for 32 days served. He also must be on supervised release for two years. At Johnstonâ€™s sentencing, Bryan called the crime a â€œvery serious offenseâ€? and said Johnston â€œstole a public resource.â€? The 350-year-old fir was more than 6 feet in diameter and about halfway through its life span, Michael Hutchins, a Forest Service natural resources staff officer, said Wednesday. â€œThese are ancient trees,â€? he said. â€œYou canâ€™t get that type of habitat that it was providing quickly. â€œYou look at it back throughout time, what is its value through the future. . . . Now itâ€™s been pushed back and will have to start back over again.â€? Johnston, a new father, said at his sentencing that he cut down the trees while logging a parcel he thought had been logged 25 years ago. TURN TO THIEF/A4

Publicist Charles Sherman told The Associated Press that Asner was taken off stage at the Asner Marquette Pavilion in Gary, Ind., on Tuesday night.

A3 Briefly: Nation Lt. governor of Fla. resigns over scandal TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — An investigation of a purported veterans charity in Florida led to the resignation of the state’s lieutenant governor, who once did public relations for the nonprofit accused of using Internet cafes as a front for an illegal gambling operation. Jennifer Carroll’s resignation came as the owner of an Oklahoma software company and his wife were arrested and accused of supplying ille- Carroll gal gambling software to Allied Veterans of the World, a charity based in St. Augustine, Fla. Carroll’s public relations firm once represented Allied Veterans. Carroll, 53, a Navy veteran who served in the Gulf War, appeared in a TV ad in 2011 promoting the organization’s charitable work on behalf of veterans. She has not been charged with any wrongdoing. Authorities said Wednesday they have issued 57 arrest warrants in Florida and five other states. Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi said charges will include racketeering, conspiracy, money laundering and possession of slot machines.
La. pipeline burns NEW ORLEANS — A gas pipeline burned Wednesday in a bayou south of New Orleans hours after it was hit by a tugboat pushing an oil barge. Coast Guard Cmdr. Russ Bowen said none of its cargo of 92,000 gallons of crude oil was leaking, although oily sheen was seen in the area. Bowen said authorities planned to allow the gas to burn itself out before approaching for a closer inspection. Four people aboard the 47-foot tug Shanon E. Settoon were injured, one severely, in the collision Tuesday night. The 19-mile section of pipeline was carrying liquefied petroleum gas. It had been isolated from other conduits by its owner, San Ramon, Calif.-based Chevron, so only what was inside could burn.
Concealed carry ruling SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — Gov. Pat Quinn said Wednesday that he wants the state’s attorney general to appeal a federal court ruling that Illinois’ concealedcarry ban is unconstitutional, a move that would take it before the U.S. Supreme Court. A three-judge panel of the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals struck down Illinois’ ban last year and gave lawmakers until early June to legalize the concealed carry of firearms. Last month, the court declined Illinois’ request to reconsider the ruling. The Associated Press

Briefly: World Inquiry: Police behind deaths in Cairo square CAIRO — The highest-level inquiry to date into the deaths of nearly 900 protesters during Egypt’s 2011 uprising has concluded police were behind nearly all the killings and used snipers on rooftops overlooking Cairo’s central Tahrir Square to shoot into the huge crowds. The report, parts of which were obtained by The Associated Press, is the most authoritative and sweeping account of the killings and determines the deadly force used could only have been authorized by ousted President Hosni Mubarak’s security chief, with the president’s full knowledge. The report’s findings could weigh heavily in the upcoming retrial of Mubarak, his security chief — former Interior Minister Habib el-Adly — and six top police commanders. It is likely to also fuel calls for reforming the security forces and lead to prosecutions of policemen.
N. Korea knocks skirt SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea’s first public, senior-level mention of South Korea’s first female president ended up being a sexist jab. The body that controls North Korea’s military complained Wednesday about the “venomous swish” of her skirt. But despite that swipe and a
continuing torrent of rhetoric from Pyongyang threatening nuclear war and other mayhem, President Park Geun-hye is sticking by her campaign vow to reach out to North Korea’s young leader, Kim Jong Un, and to send the country muchneeded humanitarian aid. Public frustration with the last five years of North-South relations, which saw North Korean nuclear tests, longrange rocket launches and attacks that left dozens of South Koreans dead, is a big part of the reason Park is trying to build trust with Pyongyang, even as she and South Korea’s military promise to respond forcefully to any possible attack from the North.
Blogger arrested CARACAS, Venezuela — Venezuela’s justice minister said a woman has been arrested for posting what he called “destabilizing messages” on a social networking site. Nestor Reverol said police arrested Lourdes Ortega Perez on Wednesday after the computer technician stole the identity of an official from the country’s notary public service to post the messages. Authorities did not reveal the content of the messages. Reverol told state television the government is closely monitoring networking sites to detect any messages aimed at spurring social or political upheaval as Venezuelans prepare for an upcoming presidential election.

VATICAN CITY — In electing Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina as pope, the leaders of the Roman Catholic Church recognized a shift in the church’s center of gravity while maintaining its conservative theology. The new Pope Francis is the first ever from the Americas and the first from outside Europe in more than a millennium. The 266th pontiff in the church’s history immediately confronts daunting challenges. His flock is growing rapidly in some parts of the globe but is disenchanted and shrinking elsewhere. The Vatican bureaucracy is widely thought to need sweeping reform, and the church is still struggling with the legacy of its sex abuse scandal. His election represented a gentle earthquake for an institution steeped in tradition: a major departure geographically, yet a continua-
tion theologically with his conservative predecessors, the late John Paul II and Benedict XVI, whose surprise resignation last month threw the church into uncertainty. The cardinals who elected Bergoglio, 76, after just 24 hours of voting chose a man known for his humbleness.
Archbishop of Buenos Aires The son of Italian immigrants – a reassurance for those worried that the church might abandon its European roots completely – he has served since 1998 as archbishop of Buenos Aires, where he cultivated a reputation for competent administration, a willingness to speak out on controversial national issues and an austere lifestyle belying his prestigious position. His first act was to pick a papal name that analysts say reflects the intended focus of his reign — an emphasis on the humility and concern for the poor and marginalized exemplified by St. Francis of Assisi.
Francis was also the name of a prominent 16th century Jesuit, the highly intellectual order to which Bergoglio himself belongs, who preached the gospel in Asia. The new pope is also seen as an outsider who may be able to usher in the internal reform and cleanup that critics say the Vatican desperately needs after years of factionalism and scandal. But some questioned whether his age and personality would make him a transitional figure. Bergoglio’s self-effacing manner seemed evident from the moment of his unveiling, when he stepped from behind red velvet curtains onto the central balcony of imposing St. Peter’s Basilica. He waved with one hand to the crowd of tens of thousands below in St. Peter’s Square, looking almost embarrassed as a small smile played on his bespectacled face. “You know that the duty of the conclave was to give Rome a bishop,” he told the crowd, referring to the pontiff’s traditional position as bishop of Rome. “It seems that my brother cardinals picked him from almost the ends of the Earth. “But here we are! I thank you for the warm welcome.”
Upstate N.Y. shooter kills 4 THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
HERKIMER, N.Y. — Multiple gunshots rang out as police on foot and in a helicopter swarmed two upstate New York villages in search of a 64-year-old man they say opened fire at a car wash and a barbershop Wednesday morning, killing four people and wounding at least two others. Authorities were looking for Kurt Meyers, said Joseph Malone, the police chief for Herkimer and Mohawk. A college and schools were locked down and people were being told to stay indoors as Meyers remained at large Wednesday afternoon.
The gunshots were heard at about 1:30 p.m. as SWAT and other police surrounded a block of businesses in the village of Herkimer. Guns and Meyers ammunition were found inside Meyers’ Mohawk apartment after emergency crews were sent to put out a fire there Wednesday morning. Soon after, two people were fatally shot and two others wounded at John’s Barber Shop around the corner from the apartment, police said.
The second shooting happened about a mile away in Herkimer, where two people were killed at Gaffey’s Fast Lube and Car Wash, authorities said. The two villages are about 65 miles east of Syracuse, on opposite sides of the Mohawk River in a region known as the Mohawk Valley. James Baron, the 29-year-old mayor of Mohawk, said he doesn’t know Meyers but knew several of the people who were shot, including “at least” two of the barbershop victims. The mayor described his village as close-knit and friendly, “the kind of place where you’d say, ‘Oh, it would never happen here.’”

AN ARREST IN Arizona 50 years ago that led to a U.S. Supreme Court decision is the subject of an exhibit at the Phoenix Police Museum that includes the handwritten confession thrown out by the U.S.’s highest court. The warning that suspects have the right to remain silent sprang, in part, from the arrest of Ernesto Miranda in Phoenix on March 13, 1963. Miranda was convicted of kidnapping and raping an 18-year-old woman in Phoenix. But the Supreme Court concluded his rights against selfincrimination and to have an attorney present in the interrogation room weren’t protected.

A regular Egg McMuffin has 300. The Oak Brook, Ill.-based chain announced it was testing the breakfast sandwich last year.

But Obama’s allies said that national health care could help strengthen the economy in part by encouraging health maintenance and prevention. The law has been upheld by the Supreme Court.

The Associated Press reported last year that some employers around the country were asking applicants for their social media information. Democratic Sen.

Sentencing delayed for trail attacker
PORT ANGELES â€” The sentencing of Spencer J. Silva, a Sequim man convicted of assaulting a woman on the Olympic Discovery Trail last summer, was postponed Wednesday. Silva, 23, sat quietly as Clallam County Superior Court Judge S. Brooke Taylor discussed the merger of his charges with defense attorney John Hayden and Clallam County Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Ann Lundwall. â€œWeâ€™ve got some complicated issues here that could potentially have a dramatic impact on your sentencing range,â€? Taylor told Silva. â€œIâ€™ll volunteer youâ€™d like to be on your way. You are getting credit for time served, and youâ€™re going to have to sit here a little while longer until we get this sorted out.â€? A hearing on the merger of charges was set for April 3. Silva, who remained in the Clallam County jail Wednesday, was found guilty in January of seconddegree assault with a deadly weapon, first-degree attempted robbery and unlawful imprisonment for attacking a 22-year-old woman on the trail last July.
Halloween mask Clallam County sheriffâ€™s investigators said Silva was wearing a Halloween clown mask when he knocked a woman off her bicycle on the multipurpose trail west of Railroad Bridge Park. A 7Â˝-inch knife was found at the scene. The woman fought off her attacker by kicking and screaming until neighbors came to her aid. A videosurveillance recording led to Silvaâ€™s arrest. The early morning incident at a Carlsborg residence in 2011, in which Silva allegedly peered into a 17-year-old girlâ€™s bedroom, was charged as part of the same case. Hayden argued that Silva simply tried to mug the woman on the bicycle and that he wanted to steal a laptop computer when the teenager woke up and made eye contact with Silva.

Death and Memorial Notice EDWARD ‘ED’ WARREN December 12, 1937 March 6, 2013 “There is a sacredness in tears. They are not a mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief . . . of unspeakable love.” — Washington Irving A man of few words but profound love, Edward “Ed” Warren passed quietly with his family at his side on March 6, 2013. Ed was 75. Born December 12, 1937, to Durl Warren and Jessie Matilda Barnes in Iowa City, Ed moved with his family to the Pacific Northwest when he was a toddler, settling on the Olympic Peninsula. At 16, he began mowing a strip of lawn in the parking lot of Pacific Northwest Bell and washing the company’s service vehicles in Port Angeles, securing himself a spot on PNB’s payroll. During his last years of high school, Ed procured a summer job commercial fishing in the Straits, a job he loved, nurturing a deep connection to the outdoors. After graduating from
Death and Memorial Notice SARAH ELIZABETH THORNBURG June 22, 1921 March 9, 2013 Mrs. Sarah Elizabeth Thornburg of Pahrump, Nevada, passed away from pneumonia on March 9, 2013. She was born in Mississippi on June 22, 1921, to Albert and Tina (Davis) Strahan. Sarah married James E. Thornburg in Longview, Washington, in 1950. Sarah resided in Portland, Oregon, and Port Angeles. James passed away in 1998. She moved to Las Vegas, Nevada, in 2004. She is survived by her son, Craig (Julie) Thornburg; daughter Deborah (Randy) Woodward; seven grandchildren; and 15 great-grandchildren. At her request, no memorial services are scheduled.
Mr. Warren Port Angeles High School in 1955, Ed returned to PNB, where he eventually worked his way to the position of engineer. He retired from PNB in 1990. In 1957, Ed married Suzanna Wilder, divorcing in 1971. They had five children: Scott, David, Annette, Mitch and Matt. Ed and Sherri Moore met at the local Elks Club in 1971, fell in love and married shortly after. They spent 42 happy years together, adding Sherri’s three children, Trina, Randy and Darcy, to the increasing fold. The couple nurtured and raised a tight-knit blended family. Ed and Sherri have been blessed with countless grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He is survived by his
sister, Karen Black of Ocean Shores, Washington; and was preceded in death by his parents and son David from his previous marriage. An outdoor enthusiast, he was an active member and past president of the Port Angeles Gun Club. Ed was most comfortable in the field or in his shop working with wood; however, twice daily, he was devoutly committed to coffee at 9 a.m. at Fairmount Restaurant and 3 p.m. at Higher Grounds. Heaven help whoever tried to mess with that schedule! In his passing, he will be fondly remembered and deeply missed by numerous friends whom he quietly touched. Cremation services are being provided by Drennan-Ford Funeral Home. Graveside services will be held at Ocean View Cemetery, 3127 West 18th Street in Port Angeles, on Friday, March 15, at 1 p.m. A celebration of life will be held at the Port Angeles Gun Club on Saturday, March 16, at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family wishes donations to be made to the Port Angeles Gun Club, 253093 U.S. Highway 101, Port Angeles, WA 98362; or to National Rifle Association organizations.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Thursday, March 14, 2013 PAGE
Gay-marriage ruling inevitable GIVEN HIS TRACK record on marital fidelity, former President Bill Clinton is not the person I would consult about “committed, loving relationships.” Clinton used those words in a Cal Washington Thomas Post op-ed last week, urging the Supreme Court to overturn the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which defines marriage as the legal union of one man and one woman, which he signed into law. In his column, Clinton said that 1996 “was a very different time.” No state recognized same-sex marriage, and supporters of DOMA “believed that its passage ‘would diffuse a movement to enact a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, which would have ended the debate for a generation or more.’”
Clinton says he now supports same-sex marriage based on justice, equality and the Constitution. All of the arguments for and against same-sex marriage have been heard and will be heard again March 26-27 when lawyers on both sides of the issue argue two key cases regarding same-sex marriages before the Supreme Court. The justices are expected to rule in June. It will be the court’s most important social and cultural ruling since its 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. What advocates for same-sex marriage should be asked is whether they consider any other human relationship worthy of similar constitutional protection and based on what standard. The U.S. Constitution doesn’t guarantee the right to marry. States, not the federal government, issue marriage licenses. Current laws restrict “underage” marriage as well as polygamy. If same-sex marriage is approved, what’s to stop polygamists from demanding legal protection and cultural acceptance?
Justice Antonin Scalia predicted as much in 2003 in his dissent of the Lawrence v. Texas case, in which the court struck down the sodomy law in Texas. So I ask, if “fairness” and “equality” are the standard, isn’t it also “unfair” to “discriminate” against polygamists who wish to live in “loving” and “committed” relationships? Since we are rapidly discarding the rules for living and social order set down in a book found in most motel room drawers, what is to replace it? Opinion polls? Clever legal arguments? Fairness? What exactly does “fairness” mean and who decides what’s fair? Many things may seem “unfair,” but not all can, or should, be addressed by courts. I am reminded of this exchange between Humpty Dumpty and Alice in Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland: “’When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said, in a rather scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.’
Peninsula Voices School funding Full funding for Washington’s schools: What’s up? What’s not? We have middle-school teacher Bruce Cowan to thank for organizing a recent panel discussion on the subject — and Scott Wilson of The Leader, the Jefferson County chapter of the League of Women Voters and the American Association of University Women, AAUW, for sponsoring the event. Among others, the panel included state Rep. Kevin Van De Wege, D-Sequim, former Chimacum School Superintendent Mike Blair, Port Angeles school Principal Amity Butler and Cowan himself. A standing-room-only crowd heard Blair fill us in on the history of a suit he and others brought that aimed to bring “full funding” to Washington’s
schools — a suit won time and again in its ascent through the courts. We were apprised of a Supreme Court decision that would be made public the following day — so we were able to fully appreciate the implications of same on decision-makers up and down the line. The court said legislators had failed to do their duty. They had lost ground since the day they had promised to abide by an agreed-upon schedule of funding increases. Van De Wege admitted there is a crisis building. Yet, when asked where the money was to come from, he couldn’t think of a thing to say. The silence was deafening. Todd Wexman, Port Townsend on independence, let us propose the conditions on Tax bill opposed which we wish to continue If we are not madly bent as over governed citizens.
“‘The question is,’ said Alice, ‘whether you can make words mean so many different things . . .’” Last week in Sacramento, Calif., Justice Anthony Kennedy lamented that the Supreme Court is asked to settle too many politically charged issues. Responding to reporters, Kennedy said: “A democracy should not be dependent for its major decisions on what nine unelected people from a narrow legal background have to say. “And I think it’s of tremendous importance for our political system to show the rest of the world — and we have to show ourselves first — that democracy works because we can reach agreement on a principle basis.” The states, or Congress, should be allowed to sort out how they wish to define and license marriage, not the Supreme Court. It doesn’t take a prophet to see where this is headed. A nation that legalizes abortion and applies no stigma to cohabitation and out-of-wedlock births is not about to suddenly discover the
OUR READERS’ LETTERS, FAXES
If the passage of HB 1919 is realized [“Power to Raise Taxes?”, PDN, March 10] we will be deprived of
moral courage to say “no” to samesex marriage. In the 1999 film “The Matrix,” Agent Smith has Neo pinned down on a subway track. As the train approaches, Agent Smith says: “You hear that, Mr. Anderson? That is the sound of inevitability. It is the sound of your death.” If, as I suspect, the Supreme Court strikes down DOMA, it will be the inevitable result of an increasing number of Americans abandoning the source of morality and goodness. As Calvin Coolidge said of our Declaration of Independence: “We cannot continue to enjoy the result if we neglect and abandon the cause.”

our historic right. Taxation in this manner will surely violate the very essence of freedom.
We are often limited with acts and statutes made within our own state government. Dare we complain of being taxed without having the privilege of voting? Do not dictate to us what our taxes will be, as long as we assume the language of free people. The government cannot enter into any negotiation, make no compromise or dictate the amount of taxes we will contribute without our vote. I do not think that the liberties of America will be lost, but the liberties of America will be in great danger. In prudence, we ought not to be quite so ready with our tax dollars until we can secure the desired representation. We alone have the right to tax ourselves. Bob Caruthers, Port Angeles
Starving for justice at Guantanamo REPORTS ARE EMERGING from the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, that a majority of the prisoners are on a hunger strike. One hundred sixty-six Amy remain locked up, although Goodman more than half of them have been cleared by the Obama administration for release. Yet there they languish — in some cases now in their second decade — in a hellish legal limbo, uncharged yet imprisoned. President Barack Obama’s failure to close Guantanamo, as he boldly promised to do with an executive order signed Jan. 22, 2009, and the deterioration of conditions at the prison under his watch will remain a lasting stain on his legacy. From Guantanamo, Yemeni prisoner Bashir al-Marwalah
wrote to his lawyer: “We are in danger. One of the soldiers fired on one of the brothers a month ago. Before that, they send the emergency forces with M-16 weapons into one of the brothers’ cell blocks. . . . “Now they want to return us to the darkest days under Bush. They said this to us. Please do something.” Al-Marwalah was referring to the first recorded use of rubber bullets being fired at a Guantanamo prisoner by the U.S. military guards there. According to Pardiss Kebriaei, a senior staff attorney with the Center for Constitutional Rights, her client Ghaleb al-Bihani is one of the Guantanamo prisoners currently on a hunger strike. She told me Al-Bihani told her that “there is a large-scale hunger strike in Camp 6, which is the largest of the facilities at Guantanamo.” She continued: “That prison holds about 130 men. He said that almost everyone, except for a few who are sick and elderly, is on strike.”

Meanwhile, in Washington, D.C., this week, the Obama administration has to defend its Guantanamo policy before a hearing of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, a part of the Organization of American States. Kebriaei’s colleague at the Center for Constitutional Rights, attorney Omar Farah, addressed the hearing, saying: “I represent Tariq Ba Odah, a young Yemeni man who’s been on an uninterrupted hunger strike since February 2007. “He is force-fed daily by Guantanamo guard staff. . . . “Tariq says this is the only way that he has to communicate to those of us who have our freedom what it means to be unjustly detained, to be put in a cell for a decade without charge. “It’s his only way to communicate the barbarism of such conduct.” The Obama administration has claimed that only six or seven prisoners are on a hunger strike. Prisoner letters and attorney
eyewitness accounts, however, support the claim that well over 100 of the 166 Guantanamo prisoners are into at least the second month of the strike. Another lawyer for Guantanamo prisoners, Kristine Huskey of Physicians for Human Rights, also testified Tuesday. She later explained that indefinite detention causes “severe and lasting psychological trauma . . . caused by chronic states of stress, anxiety and dread, because these people at Guantanamo don’t know if they’re going to be released, if ever.” At the hearing, the Obama administration denied that it detains people indefinitely. Michael Williams, senior adviser for Guantanamo policy in the Office of the Legal Adviser at the U.S. State Department, said: “The United States only detains individuals when that detention is lawful, and does not intend to hold any individual longer than necessary.” In his testimony, CCR attorney Omar Farah countered: “In light of the existential tor-

ment that indefinite detention creates for Guantanamo prisoners and the physical risks that it poses; in light of the fact that the state itself has conceded that more than half of the prisoners the state no longer has an interest in detaining, through the clearances that my colleague just described; in light of the fact that nine prisoners have died at Guantanamo in U.S. custody — and after 11 years, when is enough enough?” The Guantanamo prisoners’ hunger strike is a bold, desperate, life-threatening act of defiance, which Obama should immediately address by fulfilling one of his first executive orders as president: to close Guantanamo.
