PORT TOWNSEND — Three new crossover police cruisers are now on the streets, making the city Police Department more current, efficient and attractive, officers say. And along the way, the new Ford Police Interceptors get better gas mileage. “Our cars lead a hard life driving around Port Townsend,” said Officer Luke Bogues, the department’s spokesman. “We expect these new vehicles to hold up better than the Crown Victorias we replaced. “These are a real step forward.” The Ford Crown Victoria, for years the preferred law enforcement vehicle, was discontinued in 2011, after which time police departments around the

Animals getting divided Two groups are receiving dogs BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

BULLHEAD CITY, Ariz. — A national rescue organization that acquired dogs once housed in a Forks warehouse building began distributing some of the animals Monday. “It’s total chaos. We’re doing triage here,” said Robert Misseri, president of Smithtown, N.Y.-based Guardians of Rescue.

Unidentified groups The two groups receiving some of the 124 Forks dogs trucked to an outdoor shelter in the Mojave Desert in Golden Valley, Ariz., were not identified because neither had consented to publicity, he said. Misseri says the impromptu site of chainlink kennels and dog runs is located at the Rescued Unwanted Furry Friends Foundation (RUFFF) shelter in Golden Valley, a desert about 23 miles east of Bullhead City. Olympic Animal Shelter founder Steve Markwell left Forks in the morning hours of Dec. 21, in a 53-foot tractor trailer equipped with built-in wood kennels, and arrived at Golden Valley on Christmas Eve to end a 1,300-mile drive.

News anchor comes out on Facebook ROBIN ROBERTS THANKED her longtime girlfriend, Amber Laign, in a year-end post published Sunday on the ABC News anchor’s Facebook page. The message, which follows Roberts’ battle with a lifethreatening illness, is the first time the Roberts “Good Morning America” anchor has publicly acknowledged her 10-year, same-sex relationship with Laign, a massage therapist from the San Francisco Bay Area. Roberts’ post was confirmed by ABC News spokeswoman Heather Riley. Sunday was the anniversary of Roberts’ 100-day milestone following a bone marrow transplant in September 2012 for treatment of myelodysplastic syndrome, a rare blood and bone marrow disease. In May, Grand Central Publishing announced Roberts, one of the most popular figures in morning TV news, will write a memoir about her battle with MDS and the life lessons she continues to gather following her return to “GMA.”

A3 Briefly: Nation U.S. test sites for drones are announced LAS VEGAS — The Federal Aviation Administration announced Monday six states that will develop test sites for drones, a critical next step for the march of the unmanned aircraft into U.S. skies. Alaska, Nevada, New York, North Dakota, Texas and Virginia will host the research sites, the agency said. Drones Foxx have been mainly used by the military, but governments, businesses, farmers and others are making plans to join the market. Many universities are starting or expanding drone programs. “These test sites will give us valuable information about how best to ensure the safe introduction of this advanced technology into our nation’s skies,” Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said in a statement. The FAA does not allow commercial use of drones, but it is working to develop operational guidelines by the end of 2015. The FAA projects some 7,500 commercial drones could be aloft within five years of getting widespread access to American airspace.

Judge’s criticism NEW YORK — A federal judge Monday questioned whether the government was trying to hide or obscure something by failing to give informa-

tion to a civil rights group about thousands of immigrant detainees held for long periods. U.S. District Judge Richard Berman’s written decision came days after government attorneys insisted they needed more time to comply with his September order granting the American Civil Liberties Union’s Freedom of Information Act request. The ACLU has said it wants to expose a flawed system that keeps thousands of detainees behind bars for long periods while their eligibility to remain in the country is adjudicated. Berman wrote that the government “continues, quite obviously, to drag its heals in providing disclosure about immigrant detentions. Hopefully, it is not also trying to hide or obscure a distressing system or set of facts.”

Killed in shootout PHOENIX — A man who once threatened the president and was suspected of carrying out a deadly Mississippi bank robbery was killed in a shootout with police as he robbed a Phoenix bank, authorities said. Mario Edward Garnett, 40, was fatally wounded as he fired on officers who had arrived at a Compass Bank branch for reports of a bank robbery Saturday morning, police said. The Secret Service said in court documents that Garnett posted threatening comments about President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the official White House website in August 2010. Authorities have connected Garnett to a Dec. 23 bank robbery attempt in Atlanta, a bank robbery later that same day in Tupelo, Miss., and the shooting death of one Tupelo officer and the wounding of another.

Congress about to let 55 tax breaks expire Opponent: Cycle is ‘shameful’ BY STEPHEN OHLEMACHER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — In an almost annual ritual, Congress is letting a package of 55 popular tax breaks expire at the end of the year, creating uncertainty — once again — for millions of individuals and businesses. Lawmakers let these tax breaks lapse almost every year, even though they save businesses and individuals billions of dollars. And almost every year, Congress eventually renews them, retroactively, so taxpayers can claim them by the time they file their tax returns.

Safe until 2015? No harm, no foul, right? After all, taxpayers filing returns in the spring won’t be hurt because the tax breaks were in effect for 2013. Taxpayers won’t be hit until 2015, when they file tax returns for next year. Not so far. Trade groups and tax experts complain that Congress is making it impossible for businesses and individuals to plan for the future. What if lawmakers don’t renew the tax break you depend on? Or what if they change it and you’re no longer eligible? The annual practice of letting these tax breaks expire is a symptom a divided, dysfunctional Congress that struggles to pass routine legislation, said Rep. John Lewis of Georgia, a senior Demo-

Myriad deductions A deduction for state and local sales taxes benefits people who live in the nine states without state income taxes. Smaller tax breaks benefit college students and commuters who use public transportation. A series of tax breaks promote renewable energy, including a credit for power companies that produce electricity with windmills. “It’s a totally ridiculous way to run our tax system,” said Rachelle

Precedent of inaction And there is plenty of precedent for Congress to let them expire for months without addressing them. Most recently, they expired at the end of 2011, and Congress didn’t renew them for the entire year, waiting until New Year’s Day 2013 — just in time for taxpayers to claim them on their 2012 returns. But Congress only renewed the package though the end of 2013. Why such a short extension? Washington accounting is partly to blame. The two-year extension Congress passed in January cost $76 billion in reduced revenue, according to the nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation. Making those tax breaks permanent could add $400 billion or more to the deficit over the next decade. With budget deficits already high, many in Congress are reluctant to vote for a bill that would add so much red ink.

crat on the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee. “It’s not fair, it’s very hard, it’s very difficult for a business person, a company, to plan, not just for the short term but to do longterm planning,” Lewis said. “It’s shameful.” Some of the tax breaks are big, including billions in credits for companies that invest in research and development, generous exemptions for financial institutions doing business overseas, and several breaks that let businesses write off capital investments faster. Others are more obscure, the benefits targeted to film producers, race track owners, makers of electric motorcycles and teachers who buy classroom supplies with their own money. There are tax rebates to Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands from a tax on rum imported into the United States, and a credit for expenses related to railroad track maintenance.

Evacuation takes place in El Salvador after blast of ash THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador — Authorities in El Salvador evacuated an area immediately surrounding the Chaparrastique volcano after the peak shot a cloud of gas and ash about 3 miles into the air. Civil Defense Director Jorge Melendez said a yellow alert had been issued and investigators had been sent to the area to look for signs of fresh lava, but that none has been detected so far. “We have implemented emergency measures to evacuate villages located within 3 kilometers of the volcano,” Melendez said.

Shelters established Emergency shelters have been set up for the evacuees, but Melendez said some inhabitants had been hesitant to leave their homes. “One has to leave for one’s own safety,” he said. Assistant Health Minister Eduardo Espinoza said two people had been treated at hospitals for respiratory problems apparently linked to the eruption.

World: No foul play found in death of Polish leader

AN ARIZONA WOMAN tried to fatally stab her ex-husband and poison her four children with prescription narcotic drugs, including a teenage daughter who was found dead in her home Christmas Day, police said Monday. Connie Villa, 35, was arrested Sunday after being released from a hospital on suspicion of one count of firstdegree murder and four counts of attempted murder in the Christmas Day attack in Casa Grande, about 50 miles south of Phoenix. The three other children, ages 3, 5 and 8, had trace amounts of opiates in their systems but were in good condition.

THE FIRST COMMERCIAL passenger flight from Key West, Fla., to Cuba in more than 50 years landed Monday in Havana, capping several years of efforts to reunite the two islands, though regular air service still appeared a distant prospect. U.S. Customs and Border Protection gave the final approval for the flight Monday morning, and the nine-passenger aircraft departed 90 minutes later at 10 a.m., Key West International Airport director Peter Horton said. “This is just a test run,” Horton said. “Whether this is going to come and be a regular service I don’t believe has been determined yet.”

A CONGOLESE PASTOR accused of being behind a coordinated attack in the capital of Kinshasa on Monday that resembled an attempted coup said his disciples were only armed with sticks. From his hiding place in an undisclosed location, Joseph Mukungubila, who considers himself a prophet, told The Associated Press by telephone that his followers were enraged after two members of his church were attacked by security forces over the weekend. Hours later, his supporters took over the state TV station and attacked the airport and a military base before being repelled by security forces.

A POLISH INVESTIGATION has found no evidence of foul play in the plane crash that killed Gen. Wladyslaw Sikorski, Poland’s leader in exile, in 1943. Sikorski was serving in that role in London during World War II when he died in a mysterious plane crash just after takeoff from Gibraltar. A British investigation blamed the crash on a blocked rudder, but Sikorski’s dispute with Soviet leader Joseph Stalin that year led to speculation of an assassination. Andrzej Arseniuk, a spokesman for the investigators, said Monday the probe found no proof of a crime.

Fund: Help neighbors CONTINUED FROM A1 For 25 years, the Home Fund has helped thousands of families across the North Olympic Peninsula. They are your neighbors, with nowhere else to turn, that our partner, nonprofit OlyCAP — Olympic Community Action Programs — wouldn’t be able to assist otherwise. OlyCAP, the Peninsula’s No. 1 emergency care agency in our two counties, oversees the Home Fund for the PDN, screening the applicants and carefully distributing the funds. No money is deducted by the Peninsula Daily News for administration fees or any other overhead. Every penny goes to OlyCAP to help the most vulnerable members of our community, from infants to families to seniors. Assistance, which usually averages less than $100, is also limited to one time in a 12-month period. The average amount of help this year has been $69.86 per family. But even though the dollar figures are small, the impact can be big, in huge, life-changing ways.

Marki Lockhart is OlyCAP’s Peninsula Home Fund leader. “Laura caught on very quickly and is a great asset to the Port Angeles office” says Marki. “Without the help of dedicated volunteers we wouldn’t be able to assist as many clients as we currently do. “They are the ones that help make this program such a success.” To apply for a grant from the Peninsula Home Fund, contact one of the three OlyCAP offices: ■ OlyCAP’s Port Angeles

Wring out the old AS 2014 APPROACHES, it’s appropriate to take a look back at the past year. Wednesday’s New Year’s Day edition will include the PDN’s annual The Year in Review section. Featured will be the Top 10 stories of Clallam and Jefferson counties, Washington state and the nation and world during 2013. Notable deaths during the year also are listed. The Year in Review also commemorates the longevity of North Olympic Peninsula businesses by celebrating their years of service — some more than a century!

Laura Calabria volunteers once a week with OlyCAP’s Port Angeles office as a Peninsula Home Fund case manager. “It’s rewarding to help others,” says Laura, 33. “It’s a really good feeling to make a difference in their lives.” Her clients, she says, are varied and come from all walks of life. They are single, married, with and without children. Some are homeless or living in temporary shelters like Serenity House. Some are lost, some have mental disabilities and many are depressed. Some just lost a job, or just got a job but haven’t gotten the first paycheck. All are in need of help to get through an emergency situation. “Having the ability to not judge others is one of the most important aspects of my job,” she says. But she finds it “especially gratifying to help those who are working hard to make it on their own. “It’s almost amazing to me when I see so many young people with kids who come in asking for help. “You can tell they are trying really hard to hold it together, but their circumstances can be really hard so I tell them, ‘You’re actually doing pretty great,’ which can reassure them they are OK.” Most of the Home Fund clients, she says, “just need a bit of guidance on how they could be doing a little bit more to help themselves.” Laura is married, holds down a job tending a wine bar and volunteered in the past at Hamilton Elementary School, assisting teachers and students. She grew up in Italy and volunteered there “at youth centers and places like that, because helping others is important.”

New Year’s Day celebratory polar-bear plunges into the chilly waters of the North Olympic Peninsula will be short two key people Wednesday. But the events across the Peninsula will go on, most likely in their brrr-fect fashion to ring in the New Year. But the founders of two of those events will not be able to join this year’s hardy souls in taking the plunge. Sonja Hirsch, founder of the Lake Pleasant Polar Bear Dip on the West End, and Tom Rose, owner of the Nordland General Store and founder of the Nordland Polar Bear Dip in East Jefferson County, have more important plans. Hirsch, who is pregnant with a due date of last Saturday, said Monday that she hopes to be cradling her newborn baby — at Swedish Medical Center in Seattle Those who participate will have to do so without her, she said. Depending on the baby’s arrival, Hirsch’s mother, Carin Hirsch, plans to lead the splashing lake entry. The ninth annual Lake Pleasant Polar Bear Dip will begin at 10 a.m. Sunday at Lake Pleasant Community Beach County Park. The park is off U.S. Highway 101 in Beaver, 10 miles north of Forks.

Nordland plunge Rose will be home recovering from emergency Christmas Eve surgery and will miss the 20th annual incarnation of the Nordland Polar Bear Dip, at 7180 Flagler Road, just off of state Highway 116. Rose was released from the hospital Sunday, and was home resting Monday, said Nordland clerk John Malcomson. In his absence, Rose is looking for 20 surrogates to take his place. Malcomson said he wasn’t sure if the 20 had been located yet but is sure there will be a great turnout again. Participants will take the plunge into Mystery Bay at noon, jumping from the dock across from the store. Malcomson said there

Those who want to shake off the effects of New Year’s Eve celebration can not only take a cold plunge in a Polar Bear Dip, but can compete in a run or enjoy a hike on New Year’s Day.

History Tales talk to focus on schooner PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — Larry Lang will talk about the Hudson’s Bay Co. schooner Cadboro at the Clallam County Historical Society’s History Tales lecture series at 2:30 p.m. next Sunday. The free presentation will be at the First United Methodist Church, 110 E. Seventh St., Port Angeles. Parking and entry to the church’s social hall are on Laurel Street. Lang — a retired National Park Service ranger, a lifelong amateur historian and genealogist and a volunteer with the Clallam County Historical Society — will discuss the history of the Cadboro in relation to Clallam County. In May 1826, Cadboro set sail from England. Its home base would be Fort Vancouver on the Columbia River. It arrived eight months later, having traveled a distance of 15,000 miles via Easter Island and the Sandwich Islands — the Hawaiian Islands, named the Sandwich Islands by Capt. James Cook in 1778. Thus began a term of more than 30 years’ service transporting personnel and

goods to Alaska, California and the Sandwich Islands. The schooner facilitated the establishment of trade with native tribes in remote coastal areas that were otherwise inaccessible and was instrumental in the establishment of outposts that became the British Columbia cities of Victoria and Vancouver.

New Dungeness The most tragic incident involving the Cadboro was the little-remembered destruction, by cannon fire, ARWYN RICE/PENINSULA DAILY NEWS of the native village at New Dungeness in 1828.

The driver was cited for “speed too fast for conditions.” In June 2013, one of the cannons came to light.

SEATTLE — Boeing Co. told political leaders in the Puget Sound on Monday that this week’s vote by Machinists will determine the fate of some jobs on the new 777X airplane. Local politicians gathered at a press conference in Everett to discuss the importance of approving the revised contract offer. Boeing executive Ray Conner told the government leaders earlier in the day an accepted contract will ensure that work on the airplane’s wing stays in the Puget Sound, but a vote

to reject the deal will ensure the jobs go elsewhere. Kent Mayor Suzette Cooke said there is no other choice but to vote yes. Otherwise, the politicians warned of a decline in the state’s aerospace industry.

Lose economic stimulus “We will see the demise of the economic stimulus that Boeing has provided us,” Cooke said. Boeing spokesman Doug Alder declined to discuss details of the company’s conversations with local leaders but said this week will “be the last opportunity for the union to vote prior to Boeing

work on the 777X. Boeing’s warning Monday focused on the composite wing needed for the 777X. John Lovick, the Snohomish County executive, said Boeing plans to build a 1.2 million square foot building to construct the wing in the Puget Sound if the Machinists approve the latest offer. The political leaders said the company’s warnings didn’t address where the fuselage would be built if Machinists reject the offer. Still, they said the composite wing is a new technology that will be a critical component for airplanes of the future.

Dead inmate SEATTLE — A Washington state inmate may have been dead in his cell for more than 37 hours. An incident summary obtained by The Associated Press shows that there’s no evidence that Jerry Levain Jamison moved around his cell at Monroe Correctional Complex after the night of Sept. 19. The next day, an officer placed mail on Jamison’s legs, and staff members reported conducting regular inmate counts. It wasn’t until the middle of the day Sept. 21 that officials found Jamison was actually dead, his body cold and rigid. Robert Herzog is superintendent of Monroe Correctional Complex. He said

officers who conducted checks assumed that Jamison was asleep. The incident review identified times when video documentation didn’t support officer accounts that a “tier check” had occurred.

Everett teenage dog trainer set to head to Westminster in N.Y. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

EVERETT — An Everett teen has been invited to attend the Westminster Dog Show in February with two dogs. Eighteen-year-old Anna Pearson has been participating in dog shows since she was a toddler, The Daily Herald reported in Monday’s newspaper. The recent high school graduate will bring Oscar, a 5-year-old Chinook sled dog, and her Australian shepherd, Promise, to Westminster.

Rare sled dog With Promise, she will be competing in the junior showmanship category. Oscar will be competing in his breed, which is a relatively rare sled dog. Pearson explained that the competition with Promise is focused on how the handler presents the dog. With Oscar, it’s all about him. She said she knew absolutely nothing about Chinooks until Oscar’s owner,


Anna Pearson and Oscar, a Chinook, will compete at the Westminster Dog Show in February. Pearson will also show her Australian shepherd, Promise. Marleen Mandt, told her all about them. About a month before they were recognized by the American Kennel Club, she learned more at an educational seminar.

They’re similar to Siberian huskies but with more muscle, Pearson said. “One of the hardest things is that when we got him, he [Oscar] wasn’t a

puppy,” Pearson said. “I spent a whole year getting him ready to show because he was crazy. I mean, he’s crazy now, too.” Pearson noted that the only person who has ever beaten Oscar and her was her sister, Laura, with her Chinook. “But we don’t talk about that,” she added. Training a Chinook is tough because they aren’t afraid of anything. Also Oscar is a high energy dog, so Pearson said she may have to run him before his time in front of the judges to calm him down. Pearson is a student at Cascadia Community College, trying to decide whether to seek a degree in political science or English. She plans to go to law school after getting her undergraduate degree. She also works several part-time jobs, in addition to school and dog shows. Her favorite dog show is the Seattle Kennel Club show because she gets to show off what she does to her non-dog friends.

Forks library enters new phase WHAT DOES FIRST Congregational Church, a rabbit hutch, two world wars, the Korean War, a talent show, donated property and labor, a trip to Vashon Island, Seafirst Bank and the very latest technology all have in common? They are some of the chapters that make up the story of the Forks library. In December 1932, the first Forks Public Library opened in the study of the First Congregational Church. The church had been moved 10 years earlier from its original location at the corner of Merchants Road and Calawah Way. Sitting a half-block off Main Street, it was the perfect location for serving the community’s reading needs. The new library started with 150 books, and by January 1934, the number had grown to 560 books. A year later, the number of available books reached more than 1,000, and more shelves had to be added. Over the next 10 years, the little library in the church served the readers of the town and those as far away as Clearwater. The first library board meeting was held in January 1945, and in March that year the church board passed a motion giving the books in their library to the rural library district. A year later, the first Forks library was set up in the USO room in the Forks grade-school building.

the new building and was dedicated in June 1952 to members of the armed forces who served in both world wars and Korea. Over the next 20-plus years, the library continued to grow. It moved across the street and up a half-block to its current location on Jan. 19, 1981, the site of the former Seafirst Bank. This month — on Saturday, Dec. 21 — an estimated 300 people attended the grand reopening of the Forks branch of the North Olympic Library System. The recent renovations bring the library the latest in technology, a more open floor plan and a fireplace. The Friends of the Forks Library are still seeking financial donations to cover the cost of building enhancements, such as new window blinds, book display accessories and more. For more information, including how to make a donation, contact the Forks branch library at 360-374-6402.

WEST END NEIGHBOR Books for the new library Baron were also donated by townspeople, and 600 volumes were rented from the Port Angeles library. Even though the library was popular with Forks residents, it nearly was discontinued after a fire at the grade-school and a building expansion left no available space for a library. As a temporary measure, the library books were moved to a rabbit hutch. It was actually a former rabbit hutch, a business venture of the Fletcher family. The rabbits were long gone, and it really was a former skid shack prior to being a rabbit abode. Shelves were built, and the books were moved to this new space. In the spring of 1947, the first bookmobile arrived, and the rabbit hutch-library was running out of room. Planning soon began on a war memorial library. A group of library supporters took a trip to Vashon Island to visit the memorial library there. After a tour, they headed home with a pamphlet titled

Health law: In-your-face calorie info BY HOLLY RAMER OFFICE WORKERS IN search of snacks will be counting calories along with their change under new labeling regulations for vending machines included in President Obama’s health care overhaul law. Requiring calorie information to be displayed on roughly 5 million vending machines nationwide will help consumers make healthier choices, says the Food and Drug Administration, which is expected to release final rules early next year. It estimates the cost to the vending machine industry at $25.8 million initially and $24 million per year after that, but says if just .02 percent of obese adults ate 100 fewer calories a week, the savings to the health care system would be at least that great. The rules will apply to about 10,800 companies that operate 20 or more machines. Nearly three quarters of those

companies have three or fewer employees, and their profit margin is extremely low, according to the National Automatic Merchandising Association. An initial investment of $2,400 plus $2,200 in annual costs is a lot of money for a small company that only clears a few thousand dollars a year, said Eric Dell, the group’s vice president for government affairs. “The money that would be spent to comply with this — there’s no return on the investment,” he said. While the proposed rules would give companies a year to comply, the industry group has suggested a two-year deadline and is urging the government to allow as much flexibility as possible in implementing the rules. Some companies may use electronic displays to post calorie counts while others may opt for signs stuck to the machines. The FDA also is working on final rules for requiring restaurant chains with more than 20

locations to post calories information, something some cities already mandate and some large fast-food operations have begun doing voluntarily. A 2011 study in New York found that only one in six customers looked at the information, but those who did generally ordered about 100 fewer calories. A more recent study in Philadelphia found no difference in calories purchased after the city’s labeling law took effect. “There is probably a subset of people for whom this information works, who report using it to purchase fewer calories, but what we’re not seeing though is a change at an overall population level in the number of calories consumed,” said Brian Ebel, the study’s author and an assistant professor at New York University’s department of population health and medicine. Ebel said he wouldn’t be surprised if the vending machine labels end up being equally ineffective, but he said it’s possible

that consumers might pay more attention to them for a couple of reasons. In some locations, a vending machine might be the only food option, he said. And reading a list of calorie counts on a machine will be less overwhelming than scanning a large menu at a fast-food restaurant with other customers waiting in line behind you, he said. Carol Brennan, who owns Brennan Food Vending Services in Londonderry, Conn., said she doesn’t yet know how she will handle the regulations, but she doesn’t like them. She has five employees servicing hundreds of machines and says she’ll be forced to limit the items offered so her employees don’t spend too much time updating the calorie counts. “It is outrageous for us to have to do this on all our equipment,” she said. Brennan also doubts that consumers will benefit from the

calorie information. “How many people have not read a label on a candy bar?” she said. “If you’re concerned about it, you’ve already read it for years.” But Kim Gould, 58, of Seattle, said he doesn’t read the labels even after his choice pops out of a vending machine, so having access to that information wouldn’t change what he buys. “People have their reasons they eat well or eat poorly,” Gould said. Standing with his 12-year-old daughter near a vending machine in a medical clinic where he bought some drinks last week, he said he only makes purchases at the machines when he’s hungry and has no other options. “How do we know people who are buying candy in the vending machines aren’t eating healthy 99 percent of the time?” he asked.

This title is no joke The Seahawks last won a division title in 2010, but that was a low-rent pennant purchased with a 7-9 record — to the snickers of the rest of the NFL. But this was totally legit, as their 13-3 record brought them out on top of the NFL’s best division and earned them homefield advantage throughout the postseason. As the weeks progressed and expectations rose in unrealistic increments, coach Pete Carroll taught his team to consider every game a “championship opportunity.” So, when they finally actually got to the last championship opportunity of the season, they knew what to do because of the lessons banked along the way. “We feel like every game is big, has some kind of adversity we have to learn to deal with,” linebacker Bobby Wagner said. “Through the course of the season, every game prepared us for this moment — and for the rest of the moments we’re left to have this season.” The lessons learned? How about a few of these: ■ The last time Seattle faced St. Louis, receiver Golden Tate had a nice touchdown, but was flagged for taunting. On Sunday, he not only compiled a career-high 129 receiving yards, but he didn’t taunt — at least not enough to draw a flag. ■ The last time Seattle faced St. Louis, the defense surrendered 200 rushing yards, a huge blow to their pride. On Sunday, they pinched the Rams down to 13 yards on 18 rushes. That’s 26 inches per handoff. ■ The Seahawks came into this game as the NFL’s most penalized team, but on this day, it was the Rams that were instigators and hotheads, getting penalized 12 times — and were flagged for 19 total violations when you count offsetting and declined infractions. ■ As tackle Breno Giacomini, formerly a noted blue-line enforcer for the Hawks suddenly converted to pacifism, said: “I’m just trying to do my job; I don’t know why those guys like to hit me.”

Russell Wilson rebound Wilson, meanwhile, was coming off his worst game of the season, but he put together a passer rating of 102.1 in the face of heavy Rams pressure. Running back Marshawn Lynch hadn’t averaged 4.0 yards per carry in a game since Nov. 10, but against a rugged Rams front seven, he pounded out 97 yards on 23 carries — 4.2 per touch. On this day, they showed that it’s the boxers rather than the punchers who win the titles. And if a functioning team is something of a mechanism, it’s best when the parts are interchangeable.

Harvin could be back Injured Seattle receiver set to return to practice BY TIM BOOTH THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

RENTON — Already with home-field advantage in the NFC playoffs, the Seattle Seahawks might be getting another addition just in time for a playoff run: Percy Harvin. Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Harvin will practice when the Seahawks return later this week to prepare for their NFC divisional playoff game on Jan. 11. Carroll said there is no guarantee Harvin will be able to play.

But Harvin has reached a point in his recovery from hip surgery — and a setback following his one game this season — where he can return to practice in time for the postseason. The news came a day after Seattle wrapped up the NFC West title and the No. 1 seed in the NFC. It’s a stunning turn after Carroll hinted last week that a roster move could be possible with Harvin to clear a roster spot. Instead, the Seahawks are

Doctors give no prognosis for Schumacher BY GRAHAM DUNBAR SARAH DILORENZO



hour by hour.” Schumacher’s wife, Corinna, daughter Gina Maria and son Mick were at his bedside. “The family is not doing very well, obviously. They are shocked,” his manager, Sabine Kehm, told reporters. Schumacher earned universal admiration for his uncommon driving talent, which led to a record 91 race wins. His singleminded dedication to victory sometimes meant he was denied the same affec-

tion during his career that he received Monday. Schumacher “gave the image of someone indestructible, powerful,” France’s four-time F1 champion Alain Prost said on iTele TV channel. “It’s a banal accident compared to what he’s done in the past . It’s just a dumb thing that ended badly.” Schumacher and his 14-year-old son were skiing Sunday morning in the French Alpine resort of Meribel, where the family has a chalet.

GRENOBLE, France — Doctors offered a grim assessment of Michael Schumacher’s head injuries Monday, providing no prognosis for the Formula One driving great after his skiing accident in the French Alps. Schumacher has been placed in a medically induced coma to relieve pressure on his brain, which suffered bruising and bleed-

ing when the retired seventime world champion fell and struck a rock Sunday while skiing during a family vacation. “We cannot predict the future for Michael Schumacher,” Dr. Jean-Francois Payen, the doctor in charge of Grenoble University Hospital’s intensive care unit, said at a news conference. “He is in a critical state in terms of cerebral resuscitation,” said Payen, the chief anesthesiologist treating the 44-year-old German driver. “We are working



Petersen announces UW coaching staff PENINSULA DAILY NEWS NEWS SOURCES

SEATTLE — Chris Petersen announced his first coaching staff at Washington on Monday with most of his Boise State staff joining him in Seattle. Not included on Peterson’s new staff are Justin Wilcox, previously the Huskies’ defensive coordinator, and quarterback coach Marques Tuiasosopo, who served as Washington’s interim coach in its win over BYU in the Fight Hunger Bowl. According to The Seattle Times, Tuiasosopo has accepted an offer to join former Washington coach Steve Sarkisian at USC as its tight ends coach. Tuiasosopo reportedly was offered a job coaching the Huskies’ tight ends, but elected to instead join Sarkisian and the Trojans. USC also ais expected to announce the hiring of Wilcox to a similar position to the one he held at Washington in the coming days. Eight coaches who worked with Petersen at some point in his tenure at Boise State will be with him at Washington. “I’m thrilled to welcome

this talented group of coaches to Washington,” Petersen said in a statement from the school. “They bring with them both a wealth of experience, and an understanding of what we want to accomplish here and how to get it done.” Pete Kwiatkowski will be the defensive coordinator after serving in that role under Petersen at Boise State. He’ll be joined on that side of the ball by Bob Gregory, who was Boise State’s interim coach for its bowl game loss to Oregon State. Gregory will be the Huskies linebackers coach/assistant head coach. Jimmy Lake will coach defensive backs and Jeff Choate will be the special teams coordinator and defensive line coach. On the offensive side, Jonathan Smith will be promoted from his role at Boise State and be the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Smith, a former quarterback at Oregon State, spent the past two seasons as the Broncos’ quarterbacks coach. Brent Pease will rejoin Petersen’s staff as the wide

receivers coach after he was recently fired as Florida’s offensive coordinator. Pease was with the Gators for one season. Keith Bhonapha will be in charge of running backs and will be the Huskies recruiting coordinator, and Chris Strausser will be the offensive line coach. Petersen is expected to hire a tight ends coach in the coming days. The staff will not include Tosh Lupoi, the defensive line coach under previous coach Steve Sarkisian. Washington is looking into allegations of recruiting violations against Lupoi, first reported by the Los Angeles Times. The school said Lupoi is being reassigned within the athletic department, but gave no details on what his duties will be. Petersen also is bringing Tim Socha from Boise State as the strength and conditioning coach. Rich Rasmussen will be the director of player personnel and Mike McHugh is leaving Fresno State to be the director of football operations. Damon Huard will remain chief administrative officer for the football program.

Forks 42, Mary M. Knight 39 OCEAN SHORES — The Spartans beat the

Owls at the North Beach Invite on Saturday. Leo Gonzales led Forks with 12 points and Colton Raben had 10, but neither of the Spartans’ top scorers had a single point at halftime. Mary M. Knight went into intermission with a 16-12 lead after holding Forks to two first-quarter points. Gonzales and Raben got going in the second half as the Spartans led 28-22 after three quarters. Rather than put the Owls away, though, Forks let them hang around. “We just maintained that lead instead of putting our foot on the gas,” Spartans coach Rick Gooding said. Gooding said his team took a step back after showing improvement in Friday’s loss to Tacoma Baptist. “We kind of stalled out,” he said. Forks (1-3 Evergreen League, 3-6 overall) returns to league play Friday with a home game against Rainier (2-1, 2-3).

Tebow joins SEC Network, still pursuing NFL THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ATLANTA — Tim Tebow has his next football job — talking about the sport on TV. The Heisman Trophy winner has been hired as a college football analyst for the new SEC Network in a return to his Florida glory days, but he still hopes to play quarterback in the NFL. Tebow will appear on “SEC Nation,” a pregame show that will travel to a different campus each week

after the channel launches in August. The multiyear deal “will not preclude him from continuing to pursue playing opportunities in the NFL,” ESPN, which runs the network, said in a statement Monday. Tebow did not play in the league in 2013 after he was cut by the Patriots in August. In the span of just over one season, he went from a national sensation who led the Denver Broncos to the playoffs, to a backup, to out of the NFL.

“While I continue to pursue my dream of playing quarterback in the NFL, this is an amazing opportunity to be part of the unparalleled passion of college football and the SEC,” Tebow said in a statement released by ESPN. ESPN senior vice president Justin Connolly called Tebow an “SEC icon with a national fan base and broad appeal.” Tebow will make his ESPN debut during pregame coverage of the BCS championship Jan. 6.

Day of reckoning: 5 NFL coaches already fired BY BARRY WILNER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

It didn’t take long. Barely 12 hours after the NFL’s regular season ended, five head coaches were unemployed. Fired on Monday were Washington’s Mike Shanahan, Detroit’s Jim Schwartz, Minnesota’s Leslie Frazier and Tampa Bay’s Greg Schiano. The Cleveland Browns didn’t even wait that long, dismissing Rob Chudzinski on Sunday night after just one season on the job. Shanahan, who won two Super Bowls in Denver in the 1990s, spent four seasons with the Redskins and was 24-40. Frazier had a little more than three seasons with the Vikings to compile an 18-33-1 mark, and Schwartz coached the Lions for five seasons, finishing 29-52. Schiano only got two years with the Buccaneers, going 11-21. He had three years and $9 million left on his contract.

Tampa Bay also fired general manager Mark Dominik. “It’s tough for the players to see your coaches go. You never want to see anybody get fired,” Pro Bowl defensive tackle Gerald McCoy said. “Me personally, I haven’t had any, consistently, in my career. Third head coach, going on my fifth year and three head coaches. Add up everybody, it’ll be six D-line coaches.”

Bucs can another The Buccaneers, who also have fired the likes of Tony Dungy and Jon Gruden, hired Schiano out of Rutgers in 2012 and went 6-4 before losing five of their last six games. They dropped their first eight games this season and finished 4-12. One coach allegedly on the hot seat was retained: Rex Ryan, who has one more year on his contract, is staying with the New York Jets after a surprising 8-8

record in his fifth season at the helm. While some of the fired coaches might have seen it coming, Chudzinski certainly didn’t despite going 4-12 and losing his final seven games and 10 of 11.

‘Brown to the core’ “I was shocked and disappointed to hear the news that I was fired,” said Chudzinski, who grew up a Browns fan. “I am a Cleveland Brown to the core, and always will be. It was an honor to lead our players and coaches, and I appreciate their dedication and sacrifice. “I was more excited than ever for this team, as I know we were building a great foundation for future success.” As the coaching searches begin, agents will float the names of their clients — Penn State’s Bill O’Brien seems to be the hottest candidate and has interviewed for Houston’s vacancy. The Texans (2-14), who

own the top choice in May’s draft after losing their final 14 games, released coach Gary Kubiak late in the season. Whoever gets hired in each place will face mammoth rebuilding projects. Overall, the six teams seeking new coaches went 24-71-1. Shanahan had one season remaining on a fiveyear contract worth about $7 million a season.

Salary problems He blamed salary cap restraints for part of the Redskins’ collapse from NFC East champion in 2012 to 3-13 and eight consecutive losses. Washington was hit with a $36 million salary cap penalty over two seasons for dumping salaries into the 2010 uncapped season, and Shanahan said it prevented the team from pursuing free agents it had targeted.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Tuesday, December 31, 2013 PAGE


New standards to pull plug on old incandescent bulbs 40- and 60-watt bulbs is the third step in the change to more efficient forms of lighting. The first step, in 2012, targeted 100-watt bulbs and was followed in 2013 by the elimination of traditional 75-watt bulbs. Although the lighting law has commonly been called a ban on incandescent light bulbs, lighting experts said that’s inaccurate. The law doesn’t ban incandescent bulbs but only requires them to be more energy-efficient. What’s more, the law doesn’t affect all incandescent light bulbs, just general-service bulbs — pear-shaped bulbs with a medium base, the kind that for years were used most commonly in the home.

Updated criteria to add to choice, efficient product BY MARY BETH BRECKENRIDGE AKRON BEACON JOURNAL

Say goodbye to the old-style light bulb. On Jan. 1, it will become illegal to manufacture or import 60- and 40-watt incandescent bulbs because of federally mandated efficiency standards signed into law in 2007 by thenPresident George W. Bush. Traditional 75- and 100-watt incandescent bulbs were phased out in earlier stages, but the coming ban on 60- and 40-watt bulbs will have a greater impact on consumers because of their popularity for residential lighting, experts said. That means the sort of generalservice light bulb we’ve used for more than a century can no longer be made in or imported into the United States. It may not be completely noticeable until a few months into the next year when those light bulbs are bought and not replaced, but businesses are expecting to provide a bit of education to consumers unaware of the new change. What does that mean for you?

More choice, smaller bills On the plus side, it means more choices and smaller electric bills. On the minus side, it means an end to dirt-cheap light bulbs and grab-andgo bulb shopping. Now you need to read labels. The new lighting standards, part of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, were intended to make light bulbs more efficient and reduce the amount of energy needed to power them. They’ve done that, but they’ve also

Three main choices THE ASSOCIATED PRESS (2)

New standards will eliminate the familiar incandescent bulbs in 2013. left some consumers confused in the face of all the choices in the lighting aisle. “You’re used to buying that 60-watt bulb and knowing what it looks like and everything else,” said Cordell Blackmon, manager of the Batteries + Bulbs store in Ohio. Now, he said, customers who buy bulbs in haste often bring them back when they find the bulbs don’t meet their expectations.

More attention to purchase Buying the right bulb requires more attention than it used to, Blackmon said. But with a little education and guidance, he said, his customers end up with what they need. The Jan. 1 phaseout of old-style

Now consumers have essentially three choices: compact fluorescent light bulbs, LED bulbs and halogen bulbs. Compact fluorescent light bulbs, or CFLs, are long-lasting and stingy on energy use and relatively inexpensive. But they have features some people don’t like, including the inclusion of a tiny amount of mercury. LED bulbs are illuminated by light-emitting diodes. They last for decades and use even less energy than CFLs, but they’re still fairly expensive. Halogen bulbs are the most like the old familiar incandescent bulbs. They don’t save nearly as much electricity or last as long as the others, but they’re probably the best choice for people who really don’t want to change, said Terry McGowan, director of engineering for the American Lighting Association. Consumers will pay more upfront for LED and CFL bulbs, but the new technologies will save homeowners about 85 percent and 75 percent, respectively, on their energy bills. In addition, LED bulbs can last up to 23 years, and CFL bulbs last about nine years.

$ Briefly . . . Home sales leveling off after fall WASHINGTON — The number of Americans who signed contracts to buy existing homes in November was essentially unchanged from October, suggesting sales are stabilizing after several months of declines. The National Association of Realtors said Monday that its seasonally adjusted pending home sales index ticked up to 101.7 from 101.5 in October. The October figure was revised lower from an initial reading of 102.1. Higher mortgage rates and strong price gains over the past two years have slowed sales. The pending home sales index had fallen for five straight months before November. And completed sales of existing homes fell for three straight months, the Realtors said earlier this month. There is generally a one- to two-month lag between a signed contract and a completed sale. The average interest rate on a 30-year mortgage edged higher to 4.48 percent last week, from 4.47 percent the previous week.
