PT merchants get first peek at data effort Technology envisioned as business aid BY CHARLIE BERMANT

“We want to get it launched and grow from there.” Dudley Nollette said the site, projected to go live in January, will provide immediate information about businesses and buildings in the historical downtown and uptown commercial areas.


Different values

PORT TOWNSEND — Merchants have taken their first look at a historical database intended to provide a detailed view of downtown and uptown buildings. “We want to get every bit of data we can and build this into a valuable resource,” said Main Street board President Heather Dudley Nollette during a presentation to about 30 people Tuesday night.

The site will have value to different groups: The public can use it to find business categories for shopping purposes, while those who are looking to start a business in town can scope out the potential competition, she said. “We will provide information about what businesses are here, what is for sale and what is for rent,” Dudley Nollette said. “So anyone who is looking to relocate here will get an idea of

Web developer Frank DePalma, who designed the site, said it will resemble a standard Google map with the ability to roll over the aerial shot of a building and call up the details about what’s inside.

This can include the building’s year of construction, the original use, who owns the building, whether there are any empty spaces and the square footage. TURN

EDWARD J. “BABE” HEFFRON, 90, whose World War II service as a member of the Army’s famed Easy Company was recounted in the book and TV miniseries “Band of Brothers,” has died. He died Sunday at a hospital in Stratford, N.J., said his daughter, Patricia Zavrel. Mr. HefMr. Heffron fron and the in 2007 rest of his Band of Brothers fought through some of World War II’s fiercest European battles. A paratrooper in Company E, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, Mr. Heffron took part in the Battle of the Bulge in Belgium and helped liberate the Kaufering concentration camp in Landsberg, Germany. He received the Bronze Star and the Purple Heart. After the war, the Philadelphia native returned home and found work at a whiskey distillery. He later checked cargo on the Delaware River waterfront. He was featured prominently in historian Stephen Ambrose’s 1992 book, Band of Brothers, upon which the HBO miniseries was based. The miniseries, which began airing in 2001, followed Easy Company from its training in Georgia in 1942 all the way to the war’s end in 1945, when Japan surrendered. Its producers included actor Tom Hanks and Steve Spielberg. Mr. Heffron was portrayed by Scottish actor Robin Laing. Along with one of his comrades, William “Wild Bill” Guarnere, and journal-

ist Robyn Post, Mr. Heffron wrote a 2007 memoir called Brothers in Battle, Best of Friends.

The San Francisco medical examiner identified Mr. Beckwith as the victim of a crash near the city’s HaightAshbury neighborhood Monday night. He was riding a motorcycle that was struck by a car. Mr. Beckwith was one of the three hosts of “Curb Appeal,” which features home renovations. He was a carpenter and general contractor who grew up on a farm in Maine and owned his own Bay Area construction business. Police said Mr. Beckwith suffered head trauma and was pronounced dead at a hospital. The 30-year-old driver of the car that struck him is cooperating with the investigation.

1938 (75 years ago) The Port Angeles city street department has begun clearing operations for a proposed sports park along Race Street. Approval of funding from the federal Works Progress Administration for construction is expected by city officials in 1939, City Commissioner Dave Masters said. The highlight of the sports park will be a long field to accommodate both football and baseball. A 300-foot-long grandstand is to be built parallel to Race Street. The two main entrances to the field are to be through the grandstand, and beneath the structure will be two dressing rooms with lockers and showers, a caretaker’s room and public restrooms. [Port Angeles Civic Field was opened in 1940 and renovated in 1978.]

1963 (50 years ago) The Clallam County Auditor’s Office will purchase a new bookkeeping accounting machine that will do work for all county agencies. The current machine, installed in 1959, is unable to keep up with the work, according to Auditor Robert Flemming.

The new machine, to be purchased with money from the forest, road and school funds, will be able to automatically compute some of the accounting, he said, and is called a “computer.”

1988 (25 years ago) Divers continue to search for clues in the mysterious sinking of a fishing boat in 25 feet of water near the Port Townsend paper mill last weekend. The anchor chain of the Forester, anchored in Port Townsend Bay, detached during strong winds. The 65-foot boat then crashed into a railroad trestle and sank. The mystery: what caused the shackle — the 2-inch-diameter piece of steel that connects the chain to the anchor — to break.

■ In the Monday “Passings” item on Page A2 about the death of actor Paul Walker, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Walker’s “Fast & Furious” co-star Vin Diesel reacted to Walker’s death in a message on Instagram. The account that was quoted is fake and does not represent Diesel, said his publicist. Diesel has since posted a message on his Facebook page, verified by the publicist, honoring Walker “as the brother you were, on and off screen.”

A3 Briefly: Nation L.A. airport gun suspect looks bruised on face RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. — A man charged with killing a Transportation Security Administration officer and wounding three others during a rampage at Los Angeles International Airport appeared in court with bruises on his face and a bandage on his neck. Paul Ciancia said little at the brief appearance Wednesday at a San Bernardino County jail facility where he’s being housed in federal custody. It was the first time he’s been seen in public since the Nov. 1 attack at LAX’s Terminal 3. Ciancia was shackled at his hands and feet. He didn’t enter a plea to a murder charge that carries a possible death penalty if he’s convicted. Investigators said the 23-yearold was targeting TSA officers when he killed Gerardo Hernandez. Three others were hurt. Ciancia was shot and wounded by airport police as passengers scrambled to safety.

U.S. aims at terrorists’ lure of English speakers BY ERIC SCHMITT THE NEW YORK TIMES

WASHINGTON — Concerned by the attempts of al-Qaida and its global affiliates to attract more Americans and other Westerners, the State Department is stepping up its online efforts to combat violent extremists’ recruiting of English speakers. The campaign is starting at a time when intelligence officials say dozens of Americans have traveled or tried to travel to Syria since 2011 to fight with the rebels against the government of President Bashar Assad. Al-Qaida’s branch in Yemen now puts English subtitles on its website propaganda. The Shabab, the Islamist extremist group in Somalia, publishes an English-language online magazine. State Department officials acknowledge that the new program is a modest trial run that faces a vast array of English-language websites, Twitter feeds, YouTube videos and Facebook pages that violent extremist groups have established largely uncontested in the past few years.

n image to be posted shows a young man weeping over a coffin. The message reads: “How can slaughtering the innocent be the right path?”


But American and European intelligence officials warn that alQaida’s efforts to recruit Englishspeaking fighters could create new terrorist threats when the battle-hardened militants return home.

Online analysts For the past three years, a small band of online analysts and bloggers in a tiny State Department office have focused their efforts on trying to understand what inspires their target audience — men 18 to 30 years old, mostly in the Middle East — to violent extremism, and on finding ways to steer them away from that. The analysts speak Arabic, Urdu, Somali and Punjabi. In the pilot program that

began Wednesday, the same analysts will for the first time also post messages on English-language websites that jihadists use to recruit, raise money and promote their cause. For now, the analysts will post only images and messages, not engage extremists in online conversations, as they do in the other languages. One online image, for instance, shows photographs of three American men who traveled to Somalia and died there, including Omar Hammami, a young man from Alabama who became an infamous Islamist militant. The accompanying message reads, “They came for jihad but were murdered by Al Shabab.” Another image to be posted shows a young man weeping over a coffin. The message reads: “How can slaughtering the innocent be the right path?” “We need to be ready to blunt their appeal,” said Alberto M. Fernandez, a former U.S. ambassador to Equatorial Guinea who is the coordinator of the Center for Strategic Counterterrorism Communications in the State Department.

Whales pinned in national park THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

EVERGLADES NATIONAL PARK, Fla. — Wildlife workers in boats struggled Wednesday to coax nearly four dozen pilot whales out of dangerous shallow waters in Everglades National Park, hoping to spare them the fate of 10 others that already have died. Four of the whales had to be euthanized Wednesday, and six others already had died, said Blair Mase, the marine mammal stranding network coordinator for

Quick Read

the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Park spokeswoman Linda Friar said rescuers were trying to surround the whales with boats about 75 feet from shore and nudge them out of the roughly 3-foot-deep salt water back to sea. Workers tried to nudge the whales out to sea a day earlier with no success. The whales are stranded in a remote area that takes more than an hour to reach by boat from the nearest boat ramp.

“This scenario is very challenging because of where they are,” Mase said. Officials typically have access to heavy equipment to rescue stranded whales, but that isn’t an option where the whales are now. Furthermore, the area is so shallow that it’s difficult to get the mammals enough water to propel them back to sea. A team of biologists was still assessing the whales Wednesday. Officials don’t know how the whales got there.

U.S. officials worry that China’s demand that pilots entering the airspace file flight plans with Beijing could lead to an accident or a confrontation.

Stands at wedding Wright was able to stand — without assistance of a walker or cane — with Ferguson for the ceremony only three months after 11 bones in his arms and legs were broken. “We waited until I could walk,” Wright said. The wedding was held at the Wounded Warrior and Family Service Center, and the ceremony and small reception were organized by service center staff. “They take good care of us,” he said. An Army chaplain performed the ceremony. Wright is the son of Morris Wright and Lisa Bokamper, both of Port Angeles. Ferguson is the daughter of Mike and Janice Ferguson of Sequim. They plan to hold a church ceremony on the North Olympic Peninsula and a reception for family and friends in June, when he is released from his daily treatment regimen to visit home on leave, he said.

CONTINUED FROM A1 While individual rents will not be posted, the database will include the average rents for the neighborhood, he said. “Our hope is that people will get into this and start using it right away so we can build a framework and start working together,” Dudley Nollette said. “We will rely on business and property owners to keep the information current.” Dudley Nollette said the project has been under development for two years and originally included businesses outside of the historical shopping districts. That project proved too daunting, so it was decided to narrow the focus to only include downtown and uptown.

Upper Sims in future She said the inclusion of businesses outside of these boundaries — those on Upper Sims Way — could occur in the future. “We decided this was the best place to start,” she said. “As soon as we see the tool is working well enough, we can include other areas.” Another reason for the narrow focus is that development costs are provided by Main Street, which is oriented toward historical preservation, according to Main Street Executive Director Mari Mullen. The site will be accessible through a link on the Main Street website, www., with a direct link yet to be determined.

‘Tough call’: Public sees two designs for Sequim City Hall BY JOE SMILLIE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

SEQUIM –– In one corner was a gray concrete-andglass structure. In the other, a wood, metal and brick building inspired by Sequim prairie bunch grasses. Citizens who reviewed design proposals for Sequim’s proposed $15 million City ________ Hall and police station Jefferson County Editor Charlie favored the brown barnlike Bermant can be reached at 360- design of Integrus Architec385-2335 or cbermant@peninsula ture and Lydig Construction over the more modern, concrete design from architect Miller Hull Partnership and BNBuilders by a 16-8 count after both designs were unveiled in the Sequim Transit Center on Tuesday night. “It’s a tough call. I scored them twice and had one come out on top the first time and the other on top the second,” Mayor Ken Hays said. “But I haven’t factored in an emotional reaction to either one yet.”

of the Lydig/Integrus design. Eleven-year-old Davis Kanters, whose family lives next door to the City Hall site, was indifferent but interested in both designs. “They’re both OK. I just want a fountain,” Davis said.

City officials deciding A special City Hall design committee heard the proposals Tuesday afternoon from the two teams competing to design and build the venue that will be constructed on the west 100 block of Cedar Street — from the site of the current City Hall east to Sequim Avenue. A committee of Hays, Councilwoman Laura Dubois, Councilman Erik Erichsen, City Manager Steve Burkett, Police Chief Bill Dickinson and Public Works Director Paul Haines met to go over their opinions and scoring of both proposals Wednesday morning. Burkett will take that rec-

ommendation to the City Council for a possible decision Monday.

$11.8 million cost The city decided to allow teams of architects and builders to present the best design they could come up with for a total construction cost of $11.8 million. The rest of the $15 million total project tag was used to purchase land and for other preliminary costs. A third team, Hoffman Construction and Belay Architecture, was invited to bid but withdrew its proposal after deciding it could not come up with a design that would fit the city’s spending cap. Both designs can be viewed at www.peninsula The new building will house government and police operations in one spot. Currently, government offices are spread throughout the city.

Those who liked the Integrus/Lydig design for the 30,000-square-foot municipal headquarters said it better fit the city’s character. Many said they liked the design’s open space fronting Sequim Avenue. The BNBuilders/Miller Hull advocates said they liked that team’s design because of its efficiency. One person said the city doesn’t need the building. Citizens said both designs looked “dated.” Most of those interviewed by the Peninsula Daily News favored the Lydig/Integrus building, as well. “I think it looks more like the barns we have out in the valley. It feels more like our old community,” Melissa Soares said. “I know we can’t keep the old forever, but I like the old.” Les Jones of Dungeness agreed. “That one just seems to fit the town better,” Jones said

Judge: Towns fail poor defendants Cities ‘willfully blind’ to costs of budget measures BY GENE JOHNSON THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SEATTLE — Two Washington cities have systematically violated the constitutional rights of poor defendants to effective legal representation, a federal judge ruled Wednesday, blaming city officials for being “willfully blind� to the effects of their cost-cutting. The state chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union sued the Skagit County towns of Mount Vernon and Burlington two years ago, alleging that public defenders there were so overworked that they amounted to little more than “a warm body with a law degree.�

Broad ramifications U.S. District Judge Robert Lasnik agreed. He issued a ruling Wednesday, following a two-week trial in June, that could have broad ramifications for how cities provide legal help to the poor: “In the state of Washington, there are undoubtedly a number of municipalities whose public defense systems would, if put under a microscope, be found wanting,� he wrote. The judge ordered the cities to hire a part-time public defense supervisor to oversee whether poor defendants are receiving adequate legal counsel, saying, “The court has grave doubts regarding the cities’ ability and political will to make the necessary changes on

their own.� Lawyers involved said they believed it was the first time in the nation’s history a federal court had appointed such a supervisor to oversee a public defense agency. Sarah Dunne, the ACLU of Washington’s legal director, said in an emailed statement she was thrilled to see the ruling this year, which marks the 50th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Gideon v. Wainright that the right to counsel applies in state courts as well as federal ones. “The right to be represented by an attorney is essential to ensuring that everyone — rich and poor alike — has a fair day in court,� Dunne said. “We’ve got a historic ruling enforcing that principle for towns in Washington.� Andrew Cooley, who represented the cities, said he was gratified the judge did not impose a case-load limit on their public defenders.

Public-defense budget He also said the cities have doubled their publicdefense budget since the lawsuit was filed, and it remained unclear whether officials could stomach spending any more. Instead, Burlington and Mount Vernon might simply disband their municipal courts, leaving Skagit County District Court to handle those cases. Lasnik noted that two

lawyers who formerly handled public defense cases for the cities each took on about 1,000 cases a year from 2009-2011 and often spent less than an hour per case. There was almost no evidence they investigated their clients’ cases, met with their clients confidentially or performed any legal analysis of the cases, the judge said. Instead, they simply assumed police had done their jobs correctly. “The services they offered to their indigent clients amounted to little more than a ‘meet and plead’ system,� he wrote. Since then, another firm, Mountain Law, has been retained to handle public defense in the cities, and that firm has made some improvements. Nevertheless, its attorneys also remain overworked and underfunded, he said. Ironically, Lasnik said the failings of the public defenders in Mount Vernon and Burlington didn’t necessarily result in their clients getting worse deals. With a note of chagrin, he said the penny-pinching of city administrators faced with tough budgetary times had also hit prosecutors, who in turn offered “overly lenient plea deals.� But that’s not the point, Lasnik said: “Advising a client to take a fantastic plea deal in an obstruction of justice or domestic violence case may appear to be effective advocacy, but not if the client is innocent, the charge is defective or the plea would have disastrous consequences for his or her immigration status.�

103-year prison term given in killing of couple in Ethel THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHEHALIS — A man convicted of killing a Lewis County couple in their 80s during a 1985 robbery was sentenced to 103 years in prison. Rick Riffe, 55, was sentenced Tuesday in Chehalis for the attack that killed Ed and Minnie Maurin. Riffe did not speak at the sentencing, but his lawyer said he felt no remorse and

would make no apologies for something he did not do, The Chronicle reported. Cold case detectives tracked down Riffe in July 2012 at his home in King Salmon, Alaska. His brother John also was accused in the crime and died earlier last year. Prosecutor Jonathan Meyer said Riffe abducted 81-year-old Ed Maurin and 83-year-old Minnie Maurin

from their Ethel home, forced them to drive to a bank and withdraw $8,500, and then shot them. Riffe’s defense attorney John Crowley said his client will appeal the convictions and sentence. Riffe was convicted Nov. 18 after a six-week jury trial resulted in guilty verdicts on seven felony counts, including murder, robbery, kidnapping and burglary.

Clallam board splits on 1 percent tax hike Property rate rise would generate almost $100,000 in new revenue BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — Before passing a 2014 budget by unanimous vote, Clallam County commissioners differed on a 1 percent property tax increase to fund general government. Commissioners Mike Chapman and Mike Doherty voted in favor of the allowed increase, which will generate $99,506 in new revenue among a total $9.95 million.

‘Economic burden’ Commissioner Jim McEntire cast the dissenting vote, citing an “economic burden to people whose purchasing power is pretty flat.� McEntire, a Sequim Republican, prepared a series of graphs to show the economic conditions in Clallam County over the past 10 years. “A smaller fraction of the people that live here are actually working,� McEntire said after the second of two budget hearings Tuesday night. “That’s the problem.� McEntire said the gen-

The budget eliminates furlough days and restores a 37.5-hour workweek for most nonemergency-service workers. The detailed budget can be seen at

John Troberg, the county prosecutor assigned to the case, said Wednesday he’ll hold off on a charging decision against Sanford until he receives toxicology test results on Sanford’s blood and further investigative information from the Sheriff’s Office. He said he expects the test results in the next 30 days and expects to eventually file two vehicular assault charges against

eral government levy is “north of inflation� because of the real estate boom that occurred more than five years ago. Commissioners have taken the 1 percent increase every year since the limitation was imposed by a 2001 initiative sponsored by Tim Eyman and passed statewide. “One percent is always well under the rate of inflation,� Chapman said in a Wednesday interview. “If Tim Eyman thought taking 1 percent was reasonable and that’s what the voters agreed to, then that’s a reasonable number.� Chapman, a Port Angeles independent, said the 1 percent increase “makes up about half the rate of inflation� and allows the county to maintain current services “without significant layoffs.� He added that the county has not considered new taxes on top of the 1 percent in years. Commissioners did not discuss the budget, general government tax levy or road fund tax levy in their second budget hearing. Chapman, McEntire and Doherty, D-Port Angeles, all voted in favor of a 1 percent

increase to the road fund property tax levy. The increase will add $67,160 to their year’s $6.72 million levy. “Because it’s not collected from property owners in each of the three cities, we’re falling pretty significantly behind inflation in terms of the purchasing power,� McEntire said of the road levy. “One of the basic functions of government is building and maintaining roads. “The responsible thing to do here is to try to keep up with our roads as best we can.�

This comes as the passengers who were injured, Garrett Payton, 19, of Port Angeles and 15-year-old Cailey R. Stipe of Sequim, have been released from Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

PORT ANGELES — The Olympic Peninsula Humane Society will go without $12,350 from Port Angeles city coffers next year after City Council members unanimously approved the 2014 city budget. The budget also includes the removal of $20,000 in city funding to the Port Angeles Downtown Association, which association President Bob Lumens has said will mean less money available for various associationsponsored events downtown. This money is typically spent, for example, on organizing the Christmas-treelighting ceremony at the Conrad Dyar Memorial Fountain and planning various programs and promotions that involve multiple downtown businesses, Lumens has said. The downtown association will still receive about $65,000 in taxes collected from the downtown businesses through the city’s Parking Business Improvement Area.

Unanimous vote The final 2014 budget, approved 7-0 Tuesday night, includes $41,650 in city funds expected to be part of a likely one-year contract with the Humane Society. The city’s current contract with the animal organization, which expires at the end of December, was for three years and provided for $54,000 in city funds annually for taking in and caring

Kandace Pierce, president of the Humane Society board, described the board as “disappointed but not surprised” at the City Council’s final decision. The city’s 2014 balanced budget sits at $128.9 million, with a general fund, which pays for most of the city’s operating costs, at $19.2 million. Other 2014 city budget highlights include $46,350 in health and human services funding, $300,000 to replace the Vern Burton Community Center gym roof and $50,000 for a new boiler at Civic Field. Pierce said Wednesday that the Humane Society will continue to take animals in, though the society’s eight full-time employees working at the U.S. Highway 101 shelter west of town likely will have to rely more on volunteer work and donations of supplies due to the funding cut. “We don’t want to turn

anybody away. That’s the bottom line,” Pierce said. Layoffs are not an option, Pierce added. “[Eight employees] is the bare minimum we can operate from,” she said. The Humane Society’s 2013 budget is roughly $400,000, Executive Director Mary Beth Wegener has said. Police Chief Terry Gallagher, who has been the city’s representatives in contract talks with the Humane Society, said Wednesday he likely will bring forward a one-year contract for council approval at its Dec. 17 meeting. At the council’s Nov. 19 meeting, Pierce brought forward a three-year contract proposal under which the city would have paid the Humane Society $41,650 for 2014, $47,825 for 2015 and $54,000 for 2016. At that meeting, council members were hesitant to accept the contract with yearly increases in pay because of the uncertainly of what else the city would

have to fund in the next two years. “I think we would be setting terrible precedent by taking that action now,” Councilman Dan Di Guilio said. Both Pierce and Gallagher said they supported a three-year contract of some sort. “It takes us out of being in a constant negotiating routine,” Gallagher said. “But I understand the council’s position.” Pierce said the Humane Society’s board will consider a contract with the city when the board meets Dec. 19. Despite the funding decrease, Pierce said the Humane Society greatly values its partnership with the city. “I really see us working more closely with the city,” she said. “I’m very optimistic.”

For her, “dramatic” could be understood to mean “traumatic.” And many of the rest of us understood exactly what she was talking about. The premium increase was unaffordable, so she was stuck in that nasty place of having to foretell the future without being able to foretell the future: decimate her life trying to pay this new premium, or let all the money she’d paid go down the proverbial drain and hope she won’t need long-term care. And many of us understood exactly what she was talking about.

Many of us won’t lose any sleep worrying about how to protect our “substantial assets” based on the numbers above because we’re nowhere near that ballpark. Others will think, “Hmm. Well, the house and land are worth that.” Likely true. Do you want to “protect” the house to leave to the kids? With relatively rare exception, Medicaid doesn’t “count” the house when seeing whether you might qualify, but it could (and would) put a lien on it (well, actually on the estate) to attempt to reclaim what it paid out after you’ve moved on to better things. It gets complicated. Or would you sell the house to pay for long-term care? Then where would you live? Or your spouse? Or . . . ?

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Thursday, December 5, 2013 PAGE


Warnings preceded Detroit’s woes U.S. BANKRUPTCY JUDGE Steven Rhodes has ruled that Detroit, Mich., may seek to protect itself from its creditors under Chapter 9 municipal Cal bankruptcy protection, thus Thomas making this once proud city the largest municipality in American history to go bust. The city is $18 billion in the hole thanks to its debt and long-term liabilities, such as pensions it could not afford and people abandoning the city in droves, which led to an erosion of the tax base. It didn’t have to be like this. There were signs of Detroit’s decline that began as early as the 1950s, but politicians don’t like telling voters no when it comes to government freebies and benefits. They want the votes. Last September, the Detroit Free Press printed an extensive

analysis of the city’s financial history over the past 60 years. It found that instead of making difficult economic and political decisions, which might have strengthened Detroit’s financial foundation, “amid a huge exodus of residents, plummeting tax revenues and skyrocketing home abandonment, Detroit’s leaders engaged in a billion-dollar borrowing binge, created new taxes and failed to cut expenses when they needed to. “Simultaneously,” reported the newspaper, these leaders “gifted workers and retirees with generous bonuses. “And under pressure from unions and, sometimes, arbitrators, they failed to cut health care benefits — saddling the city with staggering costs that today threaten the safety and quality of life of people who live here.” Most of the recent mayors of Detroit have been Democrats. Some have gone to jail on corruption charges, but they don’t get the same level of attention from the national media as they might have had they been Republicans. Stirring the political pot to

avoid perpetual one-party rule would have been a good way to reduce corruption and the problems Detroit has experienced under Democrats. Washington, D.C., which has had only Democratic mayors and a majority Democratic city coun-

Peninsula Voices Fish ladders A Nov. 27 letter to the editor [“Hydro not bad”] chastises our leaders for being “unbalanced” for not solving the Elwha River’s fish problems by simply constructing fish ladders over the dams. The writer’s opinion could well have been influenced by the PDN including in nearly every article regarding the Elwha dams the statement that the dams were built without fish ladders, as though that would have solved the problems. Unfortunately, solving the Elwha’s fish problems was not possible by simply installing fish ladders. The dams would have continued to devastate the fish runs for many reasons,

including by: ■ Eliminating spawning grounds below the dam by trapping necessary spawning gravels above the dam. ■ Eliminating spawning in the dams’ reservoirs through siltation of the river bottom. ■ Increasing predation on downstream migrants through depositing silt above the dams, which results in predators, both birds and fish, being more able to spot their prey. ■ Killing downstream migrants in turbines and spillways, or by reducing current in the reservoirs below velocities necessary for migration. ■ Removing sand and silt needed to feed the beaches that sustain the

cil since the 1960s when Congress gave residents the right to vote for their local leaders, is another city with several corrupt politicians. As in Detroit, Washington, D.C.’s policies appear to have ensured a permanent underclass Democrats can count on for votes, as long as government handouts keep coming. While there have been periods of economic growth in Detroit over the past 50 years, politicians did not use the money wisely, and many opportunities to alter the city’s downward trajectory toward more benefits, higher debt and the discredited notion that constantly raising taxes would stop the bleeding were missed. The one flaw in the Detroit Free Press’ analysis is this line: “Although no one could see it at the time, Detroit’s insolvency was guaranteed.” It isn’t that no one could see insolvency coming; it is that they refused to do so. Their attitude was eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we die. And so, Detroit has succumbed to financial ruin. There is a grand lesson here, not only for other urban cities faced with similar problems, but


for states and especially the federal government that don’t want to deny anyone anything, especially in an election year. The lesson is an obvious one, buried deep in our Puritan ethos: You can’t spend more than you take in, as though tomorrow will never come. If you do, your tomorrow might just look a lot like Detroit’s. Last summer, Beyonce visited Detroit, where she performed a live concert and recorded a video reminding the city of its illustrious past. The song she sang in the video was Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come,” while behind her a huge neon sign read “Nothing Stops Detroit.” Bankruptcy might.

river’s estuary, which is a critical environment for the downstream migrants. Fish ladders would also have done nothing to restore the shellfish fisheries and the bird habitat that will now develop at the river’s mouth, or to maintain Ediz Hook, the stability of which was being endangered by the reduced sediment loads carried to the Strait of Juan de Fuca by the Elwha with the dams in place. Our leaders who recognized this were very perceptive, not unbalanced. Ron Richards, Port Angeles Richards is a commercial salmon fisherman and a former Clallam County commissioner.

The fight to increase minimum wage THE HOLIDAY SEASON is upon us. Sadly, the big retailers Amy are Scrooges when it comes Goodman to paying their staffs. Undergirding the sale prices is an army of workers earning the minimum wage or a fraction above it, living check to check on their meager pay and benefits. The dark secret that the retail giants like Wal-Mart don’t want you to know is that many of these workers subsist below the poverty line, and rely on programs like food stamps and Medicaid just to get by. This holiday season, though, low-wage workers from Wal-Mart to fast-food restaurants are standing up and fighting back. “Wal-Mart was put in an uncomfortable spotlight on what should be the happiest day of the year for the retailer,” Josh Eidelson told me, reporting on the coordinated Black Friday protests. “These were the largest protests we’ve seen against

Wal-Mart . . . you had 1,500 stores involved; you had over a hundred people arrested.” Wal-Mart is the world’s largest retailer, with 2.2 million employees, 1.3 million of whom are in the U.S. It reported close to $120 billion in gross profit for 2012. Just six members of the Walton family, whose patriarch, Sam Walton, founded the retail giant, have amassed an estimated combined fortune of between $115 billion-$144 billion. These six individuals have more wealth than the combined financial assets of the poorest 40 percent of the U.S. population. Wal-Mart workers have been organizing under the banner of OUR Walmart, a worker initiative supported by the United Food and Commercial Workers union. Workers have taken courageous stands, protesting their employer and engaging in shortterm strikes. Wal-Mart has retaliated, firing many who participated. One of those fired was Barbara Collins, who worked for eight years at the Wal-Mart in Placerville, Calif. “I was terminated for speaking out,” Collins told us on “Democracy Now!”












360-417-3510 360-417-3555

On Nov. 18, the National Labor Relations Board ruled that the strikes were protected worker actions. Collins, who was speaking to us from Bentonville, Ark., where she was protesting Wal-Mart at its world headquarters, told us: “The NLRB ruling is just overwhelming. We are really excited that they found that we’re telling the truth, that they broke the law, and we want to be reinstated.” The public-policy think tank Demos issued a report, A Higher Wage is Possible: How Walmart Can Invest in Its Workforce Without Costing Customers a Dime. Demos analyzed a growing demand from the Wal-Mart worker movement for a guaranteed base salary for full-time workers of $25,000 per year. “We found talking to Wal-Mart workers over and over again that their wages give them just enough to meet their basic needs, and at the end of every month, they’re making critical trade-off decisions,” Catherine Ruetschlin, one of the report’s co-authors, told us. “Determining whether they’re going to get medicine or pay their school fees or put food on the table or keep their electricity on.” The report explains that “if

Walmart redirected the $7.6 billion it spends annually on repurchases of its own company stock, these funds could be used to give Walmart’s low-paid workers a raise of $5.83 an hour,” meeting the salary goal of the workers. Parallel to the Wal-Mart campaign is a drive for higher wages in the fast-food industry. In more than 100 cities, workers are organizing protests and strikes . . . and winning. In SeaTac, the Washington state municipality where the Seattle-Tacoma Airport is located, voters approved a local minimum wage of $15 an hour. As with Wal-Mart workers, fast-food giants like McDonald’s and Yum Brands (which owns KFC and Taco Bell) all feast from the public trough: Their workers, earning poverty wages, depend on publicassistance programs like food stamps and Medicaid, while their enormous CEO benefit packages qualify for corporate tax deductions, as reported this week by the Institute for Policy Studies. The current federal minimum wage is $7.25, equivalent to an annual income of $15,080 for a full-time worker. If the minimum wage had kept up with inflation since 1968, it would be $10.74, enough to lift

a family of three above the poverty line. If the wage had grown at the same pace as worker productivity (since each worker per hour produces much more now than in decades past), it would be $18.72 per hour. And if the minimum wage had skyrocketed at the same pace as wages for the top 1 percent, it would be $28.34. These figures from the Economic Policy Institute explain why President Barack Obama is pushing for an increase in the minimum wage. Progress on the minimum wage, and on workers’ rights at Wal-Mart, McDonald’s and the other multinational corporations that depend on public subsidies for their workers, will come not from a stroke of the president’s pen, but from the concerted efforts of workers and their allies, from the streets to the voting booths.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Thursday, December 5, 2013 SECTION


B Outdoors

Bird counts begin with a warm-up THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT the Christmas season that makes me want to count birds. I went for a walk the other day and saw seven swans swimLee ming, six geese laying eggs, four colly birds, three French hens, a Horton pair of turtle doves and a partridge perched on the branch of what looked like a pear tree. I stopped counting foul there, and decided to start keeping track of the number of tattoo shops in Port Angeles. But there were so many that I got bored. Counting birds is much more satisfying. The 114th annual Audubon Christmas Bird Count is taking place throughout the state of Washington and the United States over the next month. According to the state Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Christmas Bird Count is the longestrunning citizen science survey in the world, with thousands of participants across the nation each year. These bird counts reveal the long-term trends of birds, such as which birds are decreasing in number and which are increasing. The North Olympic Peninsula has three different bird counts, the first taking place in the middle of the month. Before that, though, the Sequim-Dungeness River Audubon Center is hosting a Christmas Bird Count warm-up this Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. This event will help counters get their eagle-eyes tuned up so they are fully prepared to count and identify birds when showtime arrives. To participate in the warm-up, meet at Railroad Bridge Park (2151 Hendrickson Road in Sequim) a 9 a.m. to discuss forest birds. Around noon, participants will travel to Dungeness Landing Park to view saltwater birds. Here is the information for the Peninsula’s Christmas Bird Counts, including the coordinators’ contact information to sign up for the counts: ■ Port Angeles: Saturday, Dec. 28; Barbara Blackie, 360-477-8028, ■ Port Townsend/East Jefferson County: Saturday, Dec. 14; Admiralty Audubon, Dan Waggoner, ■ Sequim-Dungeness: Monday, Dec. 16; Bob Boekelheide, 360-808-0196, The Sequim-Dungeness count includes a chili feed for counters, beginning at 5 p.m.

Trout fishing on Lake Leland “Lake Leland is still producing,” Brian Menkal of Brian’s Sporting Goods and More (360-683-1950) in Sequim said. With the cold spell the Peninsula is experiencing, the number of anglers angling on Leland likely will decrease. Of course, the toughest among us will keep fishing. Others will adjust their technique. “One of the nice things about Lake Leland that isn’t found in 90 percent of Western Washington lakes is that the location of the parking lot at the county park/launch allows you to bank fish while sitting in your car during bad weather,” Ward Norden, a fishing tackle wholesaler and former fishery biologist, said. As I wrote in last Friday’s column, Norden suggests still fishing for best results. Here is more on that. “If you are in a boat, anchoring along the shoreline drop-off is a good plan as the fish tend to swim parallel to it,” Norden said. “In Lake Leland, much of the shoreline has a sharp drop to about the 20-foot depth only about 30 feet from shore, so anchoring on either side is a good plan this time of year — that changes toward spring. “Casting from the beach, not too far, does the same.”

Razor clam dig days remaining The current razor clam dig is open through Saturday, if you’re willing to travel to Twin Harbors Beach near Westport. Here are the remaining days and low tide information: ■ Today: 8:17 p.m.; -1.4 feet. ■ Friday: 9:05 p.m.; -1.0 feet. ■ Saturday: 9:56 p.m.; -0.3 feet. No digging is allowed before noon. Another razor clam dig is tentatively scheduled to begin next Saturday, Dec. 14. This five-day dig is awaiting state approval after marine toxin tests show the clams are safe to eat. These are the dates, low tides and beaches for the upcoming dig: ■ Saturday, Dec. 14: 4:45 p.m.; -0.1 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis and Mocrocks. ■ Sunday, Dec. 15: 5:26 p.m.; -0.3 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbor and Mocrocks. ■ Monday, Dec. 16: 6:03 p.m.; -0.4 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors and Mocrocks. ■ Tuesday, Dec. 17: 6:38 p.m.; -0.4 feet; Twin Harbors. ■ Wednesday, Dec. 18: 7:12 p.m.; -0.3 feet; Twin Harbors. Stay tuned for the approval of this dig.

Devil of a defense Neah scores a lot, but also shuts down 8-man offenses BY LEE HORTON PENINSULA DAILY


NEAH BAY — There’s a thin line between success and failure in 8-man football. Less players equals more space, and more space increases the chances for big plays. A team with 11 players can easily cover the field with bodies, horizon-

tally and vertically. If a ball carrier gets past the defensive line, he then has to deal with linebackers and defensive backs. There aren’t as many levels in 8-man football, so a ball carrier that gets past the defensive line and linebackers usually only needs to win a foot race to the end zone. “You’ve got to really stay home and contain,” Neah Bay linebacker Tyler

McCaulley said after the Red Devils held Lummi to 14 points in the 1B semifinal last week. “That’s the key: You’ve got to really contain them.” Top-ranked Neah Bay heads into Friday’s state championship game against Touchet at the Tacoma Dome (4 p.m. kickoff) with an 11-0 record. Over those 11 games, the Red Devils scored an average of 59.8 points per game while allowing only 14.7 points per game. Seven times they allowed 14 points or less in a game. TURN

Prosecutor: Sex investigation of FSU QB Winston is over BY GARY FINEOUT THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The prosecutor overseeing the investigation of sexual assault allegations against Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston said Wednesday that it is completed. State Attorney Willie Meggs has scheduled a news conference at 2 p.m. today in his office to announce his findings. Meggs said investigators have learned as much as they can about the December 2012 incident. “We think we have exhausted all investigative tools,” he said. Winston has led the Seminoles to the No. 1 ranking, and they will play for a conference title Saturday, with a shot at the national crown. The quarterback also is the leading candidate for the Heisman, and many voters are waiting to see whether Winston will be charged with a crime before

casting their ballots. The deadline for Heisman ballots to be turned in is Dec. 9. ESPN has previously reported that DNA belonging to Winston was found in the underwear of the accuser. A lawyer for Winston has suggested that the star quarterback and the accuser had consensual sex. But the family of the victim has accused the 19-year-old of rape. Meggs has said he wanted to make sure prosecutors completed a thorough investigation before making a final decision. He has also said several times that it’s up to prosecutors to determine whether there is a “reasonable” chance of conviction. The fact that Meggs has scheduled a news conference — as opposed to getting a warrant for Winston’s arrest — could be seen as a sign that he will not file charges. Meggs said earlier Wednesday that the end of the investigation

should answer some lingering questions about how the investigation was handled and why it took 11 months before prosecutors were notified. “When you all look at this, when the dust all settles, you’ll say `Man, there were some things that could have been done back in December of ‘12 that could have cleared this up a whole lot easier than November of 2013,” he said. Timothy Jansen, the attorney representing Winston, said he does not know what Meggs will announce. But Jansen said he hopes that following Meggs’ Thursday announcement, Winston will finally address the investigation. “If he looked at evidence we did, we feel confident he will find that Mr. Winston did nothing wrong,” Jansen said. Patricia Carroll, the attorney representing the accuser, did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The alleged sexual assault was

first reported to police in December. The family has said the victim did not know the identity of her attacker until early January, when she identified him as Winston. The family has been sharply critical of the way Tallahassee police have handled the case. The family says they pushed to have a DNA sample taken from Winston only to be told by a police detective that it would alert Winston and make the case public. The family said Carroll was warned that by police that Tallahassee is a “big football town, and the victim needs to think long and hard before proceeding against him because she will be raked over the coals and her life will be made miserable.” Tallahassee police have defended their handling of the case and said it was placed on inactive status in February after police were told the alleged victim did not wish to prosecute the case. Carroll has denied that the

woman wanted to drop the investigation. The alleged victim was an FSU student during the December incident, but she left school after Carroll was told by police that information about the case was about to be released to the media. Associate athletics director for communications Rob Wilson said the university did not have any comment Wednesday. The university is expected to address the matter sometime after Meggs’ news conference. Florida State policy dictates that a student-athlete is suspended from game action if charged with a felony until the charge is resolved “absent extraordinary circumstances as determined by the administration.” Winston was named Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year, offensive player of the year and rookie of the year this week after setting ACC freshman records with 3,490 passing and 35 touchdowns.





State: Defense is about trust UW selects

Tuiasosopo as interim coach

CONTINUED FROM B1 Head coach Tony McCaulley said Neah Bay’s defensive success comes from experience and each player believing his teammates will fulfill their assignment. “You have to have a lot of trust,” he said. “Every player has got to trust one another, and that’s what we preach all the time: Everybody has got to do their job. “And I think you have a lot of senior leadership there, and they trust one another, and that’s why we can play defense. “Just a trust thing.” Neah Bay has held its opponents this season to 1,274 yards rushing (115.8 yards per game). That number would be higher, but the Red Devils have forced 408 negative rushing yards. Opponents have passed for 1,455 yards (132.7 per game) and completed just 38 percent of their passes. Neah Bay has recovered 41 fumbles and intercepted 13 passes. The defense has scored six touchdowns. Making the Red Devils’ defensive accomplishments even more impressive is that it has been playing without defensive leader Tyler McCaulley for most of the season due to injuries. As the state championship rolls around, McCaulley’s absence might actually make the Red Devils’ defense more formidable, as



Neah Bay defensive end Josiah Greene hits Cusick quarterback Tyson Shanholtzer right as he released the ball. it has give players such as Elisha Winck more experience. “It’s hard not to have him play, but on the other hand, we have some experienced guys that have played a lot because he hasn’t been out there,” Tony McCaulley said. “So that’s kind of helped us a little bit. It’s helped our depth.” That depth could prove to be a huge advantage Friday if the Red Devils find themselves in a low-scoring (by 8-man standards), close game as they have in the last two title games.

Svec said their defensive approach is simple. “You just got to watch where the ball is and go after it,” he said. “That’s all you’ve got to do.

SEATTLE — Washington has selected Marques Tuiasosopo as their interim head coach for the Huskies’ upcoming bowl game after Steve Sarkisian left to take the head coaching job at USC. Washington athletic director Scott Woodward announced the decision on Wednesday afternoon. Tuiasosopo was Washington’s quarterbacks coach this past season and met with Woodward on Wednesday.

Carroll says no resolution yet to Browner’s situation BY TIM BOOTH THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

RENTON — Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday the club is still awaiting word on any possible discipline coming for cornerback Brandon Browner, who might be healthy enough to return to practice this week. “I don’t know. We have no control over it,” Carroll said. “We don’t know. We have no timeline. We’re just waiting to get him ready. He’s healthy enough to get back on the field some and we’ll see how it goes.” Carroll said that Browner has progressed quicker than expected from a groin injury suffered in Week 10 at Atlanta. At first it appeared to be at least a six-week injury, Carroll said, but Browner has responded to treatment faster than first believed. As for a possible suspension awaiting Browner, Carroll said the team has no idea when word might be coming from the NFL. “Early on we couldn’t tell you about the injury because he had a significant groin tear but he managed it really well and it was in a place that we found out he could recover quickly. We thought he was out a


SANTA CLARA, Calif. — The San Francisco 49ers are ready for some serious chatter coming from that brash, big-talking Seattle secondary. And 49ers fullback Bruce Miller insists cornerback Richard Sherman and the playoff-bound Seahawks (111) have more than earned the right to speak up on the field.

Hawks have earned it “So far they have a reason to,” Miller said this week. “They’ve played great on defense and we’ll just have to take care of that in between whistles.” The way emotions tend to run higher than usual in this heated NFC West, Miller, tight end Vernon Davis and their teammates are guarding against getting so hyped up it hurts the cause. Jim Harbaugh also appreciates the energy and physical play by his guys, along with proper celebration on big plays — such as wideout Anquan Boldin flexing his muscles and cheering when he makes a clutch reception.

‘Most intense game this season’


the 49ers 71-16 over the past two matchups. “Any time you play a team and Next Game you lose, the next time you face Sunday them is definitely a statement vs. 49ers Davis at San Francisco game,” said. Time: 1:25 p.m. “Not just for On TV: Ch. 13 us, but for anybody. So we have to go into this game playing hard, playing fast, and initially we have to make some noise right away. “That’s going to be the challenge for us. We have to go in and play this game the way it’s supposed to be played.” That means avoiding mistakes such as the nine penalties for 85 lost yards San Francisco committed in beating St. Louis on Sunday.

It’s just the next game.” Thursday night against Enough of the 49ers caught Baltimore. glimpses of Seattle’s 34-7 Monday Expensive. night rout of New Orleans to know a The NFL fined Tomlin tall task awaits them this weekend. $100,000 on Wednesday for At 5-1 on the road, the Seahawks interfering with Baltimore’s have already matched the franchise Jacoby Jones on a kickoff record also done in 1984 and 2005 and return in the third quarter now will look to better that mark. of a 22-20 loss to the Ravens on Thanksgiving night.

Arizona visits for a Monday night game Dec. 23, but the Niners are unlikely to host a playoff game as they have in each of the past two Januarys.

Playoffs no guarantee

‘Tough-guy battles’

The reigning NFC champion Niners (8-4) still have plenty of work to do this month to secure their own playoff positioning, and a win against Seattle would help make a statement that San Francisco is still in the mix to chase another Super Bowl berth. “You definitely want to come out and play well, at home, and show everybody what we can do against a really good team,” Miller said. “Right now, our goal is to finish out the year and keep winning games and get to the postseason.

“You just have to just keep your composure and know what we’re trying to get done, and that’s win football games,” Miller said. “We’re not trying to win tough-guy battles in between the whistles. We’re trying to win ‘em during the play.” At this stage of the season, players come to expect plenty of trash-talking and hard hits in all phases. “Yeah, you’ll see pretty much anything,” Davis said. “You never know what you’re going to get.”

There is also the chance the Steelers have a draft pick taken away “because the conduct affected a play on the field.” Though he was not penalized, the league said the Steelers should have been flagged 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct. All that from what Tomlin called an “embarrassing, inexcusable” case of being “mesmerized” while standing in a restricted area that separates the sideline from the playing field and staring at the video board during Jones’ 73-yard return. Jones had to swerve to avoid running into the coach and was tackled during a return that might have gone for a touchdown if not for the obstruction.

“It might be the most intense game this season. I think so,” Davis said. “Because those guys, they don’t like us and we don’t like them.” Not to mention the Seahawks embarrassed San Francisco 29-3 in Week 2 at Seattle and have outscored

solid six weeks when it happened,” Carroll said. “He’s just responded tremendously. He’s on the roster and he’s ready to compete for us if he can get back to practice this week. “We’ll do this one day at a time and we’ll see where it fits.” Seattle is thin in the secondary with Browner injured and Walter Thurmond serving a four-game suspension for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy. Byron Maxwell and Jeremy Lane filled in for the pair and played well in the Seahawks’ 34-7 win over New Orleans on Monday night. Carroll also said Percy Harvin was expected to run in practice Wednesday, but he was unsure if Harvin would be healthy enough to play Sunday at San Francisco. Harvin didn’t play in Monday night’s win over New Orleans as he continued to have soreness in his surgically repaired hip after making his season debut in Week 11 against Minnesota. Carroll said Harvin has been treated for the inflammation in the hip but that it’s unknown when he will return to the field.

49ers want composure in emotional game BY JANIE MCCAULEY

sosopo was a star quarterback at Washington from 1997-2000, leading the Huskies to a Rose Bowl title in 2000. The decision does leave in question the status of defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox. The Huskies are expected to return to practice later this week in preparation for their bowl game. No bowl announcement is expected until Sunday, although the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl in San Francisco seems to be the frontrunning destination.

DEAR ABBY: I’m the proud mother of four beautiful children — a daughter, a son and 8-year-old twin boys. I am having a hard time getting people to understand that my boys, whom I rarely refer to as “twins,” are two separate people. Every year at Christmas, some family members buy gifts for our daughter and our eldest son, then one gift our younger boys are expected to share. Abby, they once received one T-shirt, which was meant for both of them. This also happens on their birthday. Yes, they share a room and they are twins, but they deserve the same respect as their siblings. We have never dressed them alike. They are individuals who should be treated as such like their sister and brother. Christmas is around the corner, and I don’t know how to tell my family members to please buy gifts for both the boys. I realize we have a large family. I don’t expect anyone to go broke. The gift can be a small one. Can you please help me find the right words without sounding greedy? Mom of Four in Ottawa

DEAR ABBY Abigail Van Buren

Dear Abby: I recently realized that my parents lied about their wedding date. Because of my mother’s age and health, I haven’t told her I know the truth. My father passed away several years ago, so his obituary states the date they always used. When my mother passes, do I state the true date in her obituary or perpetuate the lie? Daughter With a Secret Dear Daughter: I think you should do whatever you think your mother would want when the time comes. The ages of the offspring are not usually mentioned in a person’s obituary, and unless your friends read the wedding date with calculators in hand, I doubt they will notice the relationship between your age and the nuptials. But if anyone should be so tasteless as to say anything, just smile and say, “Yes, I was a love child.”

Dear Abby: My boyfriend’s daughter, “Heather,” came to me the other day and told me a girl at school is having sex with a 36-yearold. Abby, the girl is only 13. When I told Heather I wanted to tell a counselor, she begged me not to because she’s new in the school and doesn’t want to be labeled a snitch. I am torn about what to do. I don’t want her mad at me, but I can’t just stand back and let this continue by Mell Lazarus

Dear Don’t Know: The girl in question is being raped. The 36-year-old is a predator. What you should do is find out the girl’s name and then let her parents know what is going on so they can possibly inform the police. If you can’t locate the parents, talk to a counselor at the school because a counselor is ethically and legally required to report a crime like this.

Dear Mom: Your relatives don’t appear to be particularly sensitive, or they would already realize that children are individuals whether they happen to be wombmates or not. Their “frugality” puts a damper on what are supposed to be happy occasions. It would not be “greedy” to tell them that if they can’t afford a gift for each child — regardless of how small it might be — it would cause fewer hurt feelings if they sent none at all for any of your children.

Calif. woman to fight traffic ticket for Google Glass use BY JUSTIN PRITCHARD THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Abadie was pulled over in October on suspicion of going 80 mph in a 65 mph zone on a San Diego freeway. The California Highway Patrol officer saw she was wearing Google Glass and tacked on a citation usually given to people driving while a video or TV screen is on in the front of their vehicle. Abadie, a software developer and self-described “tech true believer,” pleaded not guilty to both charges in San Diego traffic court Tuesday.

LOS ANGELES — A California woman has pleaded not guilty to what is believed to be the first traffic citation alleging a motorist was using Google’s computer-in-an-eyeglass. The device, known as Google Glass, features a thumbnail-size transparent display above the right eye.

code listed in the citation applies to video screens in vehicles and is not relevant to mobile technology such as Google Glass. The CHP declined to comment on Concidine’s assertions. “This has to play out in court,” CHP spokeswoman Fran Clader said. At the time of Abadie’s citation, the agency said anything that takes a driver’s attention from the road is dangerous and should be discouraged. The lightweight frames are equipped with a hidden camera and tiny display that responds to voice commands. The technology can be used to do things such as check email, learn background about something the wearer is looking at or get driving directions. Legislators in at least three states — Delaware, New Jersey and West Virginia — have introduced bills that would specifically ban driving with Google Glass.

Begin tests at time of no-start Dear Doctor: I’m the original owner of a six-cylinder 2004 Malibu Maxx with a little more than 100,000 miles. For several years, there has been an intermittent problem starting the car right after it has been driven and then shut off. It turns over but doesn’t restart. Waiting awhile or holding the gas pedal to the floor helps. Trouble codes do not show on a scanner. Any thoughts? Donald Dear Donald: There needs to be a computer check during the time of the no-start condition. Fuel pressure also needs to be checked. Crank shaft position sensors are a common fault with this condition. The technician will be able to check all sensor and computer inputs to see exactly what is missing and causing the no-start condition.

Dear Paul: Heat shields have always been a problem in Subaru vehicles. Heat shields are thin metal pieces that are bolted together around the exhaust, especially the midand front section of the exhaust. They serve two purposes. First, to keep the exhaust system heat contained to ensure catalytic converter efficiency. The $800 is expensive. We also see this often and are able to install either a hose clamp or muffler clamp around the shields involved. When we have other vehicles with rotted heat shields around the catalytic converter, we use a big strap clamp available at a local home improvement store. This service holds true for any vehicle with this problem.

Briefly . . . UGN program seeks donors to campaign PORT TOWNSEND — Two weeks into its annual United Good Neighbors Campaign, Jefferson Healthcare employees have passed the halfway mark to their goal of $45,000. Ten large gift baskets were created by each department at the hospital as an incentive to participate in the campaign, and each employee who makes a donation or a payroll deduction pledge is eligible to win one. “I’m really proud of the way employees of each department have stepped up in providing all these incredible baskets,� Administrative Assistant Penny Westerfield said. “Another wonderful addition to this year’s campaign is a beautiful handmade tribal paddle made by Jim Skannes.� The Jefferson Health-

care UGN campaign concludes with drawings for the baskets and the paddle Friday, Dec. 13. Last year, UGN helped more than three dozen agencies provide emergency, senior, youth and community services to neighbors in Port Townsend, Port Hadlock, Chimacum, Port Ludlow and Quilcene. For information about UGN and its services or to donate to the campaign, visit
