Body from bay believed to be missing person Public identity withheld until family arrives BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS


Rescue personnel tend to the “highly decomposed” body of an unidentified woman that was pulled from Port Townsend Bay.

PORT TOWNSEND — The body of a woman pulled from Port Townsend Bay on Wednesday afternoon has been tentatively identified from information in a missing-person report. Authorities won’t release the name, age or other information until the identity has been confirmed by family members, said

Bill Beezley, East Jefferson FireRescue public information officer, who is serving as the spokesman for the investigation. “We are waiting until the body is positively identified and the family is notified before we release any information,” Beezley said. Beezley said the tentative identification was made on the basis of tattoos that were matched to a description in a missing-person’s database accessed by the Port Townsend Police Department. He would not say when the missing-person’s report was filed or from where the person was reported missing. TURN

Setting it Straight

By The Associated Press

ADRIENNE COOPER, 65, an American-born singer, teacher and curator of Yiddish music who was a pioneer in the effort to keep the embers of that language smoldering for newer generations, died Sunday in Manhattan, N.Y. The cause was adrenal cancer, said her daughter, Sarah Mina Gordon, who is also a Yiddish singer. Although the movement Ms. Cooper helped start in the 1970s and ’80s was often described as a Yiddish revival, less sentimental observers acknowledged that a true revival of the spoken language among secular Jews was unlikely, given that people who had learned it in their homes, like Holocaust survivors and children of turn-of-the-century Jewish immigrants, were dying out. But because of the teaching and organizational work of Ms. Cooper and a handful of others, klezmer has become a popular current of the music mainstream and

New Year’s Eve is the biggest dance night of the year on the North Olympic Peninsula. In and around Port Angeles alone, there are parties planned at Clyde’s Oriental Gardens, the Elks temple, the Port Angeles Golf and Country Club, Dry Creek hall, Odd Fellows hall, American Legion building and Mount Pleasant schoolhouse. The Chicken Coop at Blyn also will celebrate the New Year. Clustering around radio sets for the New Year’s Day football games will be the order of the holiday.

Looking Back From the files of The Associated Press

TODAY IS FRIDAY, Dec. 30, the 364th day of 2011. There is one day left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: ■ On Dec. 30, 1936, the United Auto Workers union staged its first “sit-down” strike at the General Motors Fisher Body Plant No. 1 in Flint, Mich. The strike lasted until Feb. 11, 1937. On this date: ■ In 1813, the British burned Buffalo, N.Y., during the War of 1812. ■ In 1853, the United States and Mexico signed a treaty under which the U.S. agreed to buy some 45,000 square miles of land from Mexico for $10 million in a deal

known as the Gadsden Purchase. ■ In 1860, 10 days after South Carolina seceded from the Union, the state militia seized the United States Arsenal in Charleston. ■ In 1903, about 600 people died when fire broke out at the recently opened Iroquois Theater in Chicago. ■ In 1922, Vladimir I. Lenin proclaimed the establishment of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. ■ In 1940, California’s first freeway, the Arroyo Seco Parkway connecting Los Angeles and Pasadena, was officially opened by Gov. Culbert L. Olson. ■ In 1948, the Cole Porter musical “Kiss Me, Kate” opened

on Broadway. ■ In 1965, Ferdinand Marcos was inaugurated for his first term as president of the Philippines. ■ In 1972, the United States halted its heavy bombing of North Vietnam. ■ In 1994, a gunman walked into a pair of suburban Boston abortion clinics and opened fire, killing two employees. John C. Salvi III was later convicted of murder; he died in prison, an apparent suicide. ■ Ten years ago: Argentina’s interim president, Adolfo Rodriguez Saa, resigned after seven days in office, charging that his Peronist party had abandoned him.

■ Five years ago: Iraqis awoke to news that Saddam Hussein had been hanged; victims of his three decades of autocratic rule took to the streets to celebrate. A state funeral service was held in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda for former President Gerald R. Ford. More than 8,500 James Brown fans filled an arena in Augusta, Ga., for a final, joyful farewell to the “Godfather of Soul.” ■ One year ago: Republican Lisa Murkowski was officially named winner of Alaska’s U.S. Senate race following a period of legal fights and limbo that had lasted longer than the write-in campaign she waged to keep her job.

A3 Briefly: Nation 2 dead as 40 vehicles pile up in New Orleans NEW ORLEANS — Two men were killed and 61 people injured in a pre-dawn pileup involving about 40 cars, vans and other vehicles on a busy interstate that crosses New Orleans, closing the route for hours both ways, police said. Authorities said they were investigating motorists’ accounts that they drove into thick smoke or fog that abruptly limited visibility on westbound lanes of Interstate 10 heading across eastern New Orleans. Those who came upon the scene said they heard injured motorists pleading for assistance. The highway’s westbound lanes were still closed late Thursday afternoon as the investigation continued, but eastbound lanes were reopened to permit commuters to head home at rush hour. The highway is heavily trafficked, a major corridor for thousands of commuters who enter New Orleans each day from its eastern suburbs and the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

The observatory said in a release that satellite data indicates the cloud come from a single explosion event. More explosions could send ash plumes above 20,000 feet, the observatory said.

Egyptian forces storm pro-democracy offices THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CAIRO — Egyptian security forces stormed the offices of 10 human-rights and pro-democracy groups Thursday, including several based in the U.S., accused by the country’s military rulers of destabilizing security by fomenting protests with the help of foreign funding. The raids on 17 offices throughout Egypt are part of the ruling generals’ attempt to blame “foreign hands” for the unrest that continues to roil Egypt since the 18-day revolt that ousted longtime leader Hosni Mubarak in February but that activists say failed to topple his regime. Among the offices ransacked were the U.S.-headquartered National Democratic Institute, Freedom House and the International Republican Institute, which is observing Egypt’s staggered parliamentary elections. The Obama administration demanded Egyptian authorities immediately halt the raids on nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), saying they are “inconsistent” with long-standing U.S-Egypt cooperation.

The raids on the NGOs were the first since Mubarak’s ouster, though Egyptian officials have been levying accusations for months that the civil society groups are serving a foreign agenda. Most recently this month, Justice Minister Adel Abdel-Hamid accused around 300 nonprofit groups of receiving unauthorized foreign funding and using the money for protests.

Foreign funding The Interior Ministry said the raids on 10 nonprofit organizations were part of the investigation into foreign funding of rights groups. By far the largest recipient of foreign funding in Egypt is the military itself, which has for more than 30 years received about $1.3 billion in annual U.S. security assistance. Freedom House said its staff were held incommunicado during the raids and that cellphones, laptops, funds and documents found during the interrogations were confiscated. Troops and police sealed the doors of the civil society groups and banned anyone from entering

or speaking with employees as they were interrogated. The Cairo-based Arabic Network for Human Rights Information, which is not under investigation, said in a statement that the raids went beyond the type of Mubarak-era tactics that spurred hundreds of thousands of Egyptians to take to the streets demanding freedom and democracy during this year’s uprising. “Mubarak’s regime did not dare to undertake such practices prior to the uprising,” ANHRI said, adding that the storming of the civil society organizations’ offices is part of “a systematic campaign against these organizations, which was prepared for in advance.” The country’s military was cheered by protesters when it took over security from Mubarak’s hated police force in January during the uprising. However, in the eight months since Mubarak’s ouster, the military has been methodically seeking to discredit the reformers, accusing them of illegally receiving foreign funds and being part of a plot hatched abroad to destabilize Egypt.

Briefly: World Kim Jong Un called ‘supreme leader’ by North PYONGYANG, North Korea — North Korea’s power brokers publicly declared Kim Jong Un the country’s supreme leader for the first time at a massive public memorial Thursday for his father, cementing the family’s hold on power for another generation. A somber Kim, dubbed the Great Successor, attended the memorial as he stood with his head bowed at the Grand People’s Study House, overlooking Kim Il Sung Square, named for his grandfather who founded modern North Korea. The unequivocal public backing for Kim Jong Un provides a strong signal that government and military officials have unified around him in the wake of his father and long time ruler Kim Jong Il’s death Dec. 17.

granting it more cultural freedoms. Most of the dead were youngsters from an extended family in the mostly Kurdish-populated area that borders Iraq. All of the victims were younger than 30, and some were the sons of village guards who have aided Turkish troops in their fight against rebels, he said. “According to the initial information, these people were not terrorists but were engaged in smuggling,” Celik said, indicating that Turkey was ready to compensate the victims. “If there was a mistake, if there was a fault, this will not be covered up, and whatever is necessary will be done.”

Iowa state Sen. Kent Sorenson speaks at a rally for Republican presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, on Wednesday in Iowa after quitting as the state campaign chairman of Republican presidential candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn.

Two key Bachmann staffers quit; one goes to Paul camp THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DES MOINES, Iowa — Vowing to press ahead through the Iowa caucuses, Republican Michele Bachmann dismissed the notion Thursday that her presidential campaign was in disarray — even as she lost another staff member. Her comments came a day after a key supporter fled her campaign and she had to fend off other calls to leave the race for the GOP nomination. On Thursday, Wes Enos said he was leaving his job as Bachmann’s political director, saying: “I am no longer serving in an official capacity with the campaign.” He said he doesn’t plan to work for or support another candidate

and still plans to caucus for Bachmann. Despite all that, the Minnesota congresswoman called her campaign organization “strong” and Bachmann said her headquarters had received 150 calls of support after her Iowa campaign chairman, state Sen. Kent Sorenson, resigned and switched his allegiance to rival Ron Paul on Wednesday. Sorenson made the switch a few hours after appearing with Bachmann. She alleges he was offered “a lot

of money” to change sides, an inducement she said Sorenson had told her about during a telephone conversation Tuesday. “I know what I was told in that conversation,” Bachmann said. The Paul campaign and Sorenson denied that money factored into the decision or that any such offer was made. Sorenson told CNN on Thursday that he wanted to back a candidate who is in a position to keep Mitt Romney from winning Iowa. “It’s unfortunate they’re resorting to these type of tactics,” Sorenson said. “But the fact of the matter is she wasn’t going to win Iowa.” Iowa’s caucuses will be held on Tuesday.

REP.

FEDERAL AVIATION AUTHORITIES have approved a plan to let a World War II-era amphibious plane take part in a celebration in Sitka, Alaska. The only problem is the event was held two months ago. Local officials received word Tuesday that the Federal Aviation Administration approved a permit to let a twinengine amphibian aircraft fly from Washington state for the Alaska Day celebration. The permit is good through Dec. 13, 2013. However, the plan was scrapped when officials didn’t get the permit in time.

CHICAGO ATTORNEY COLLEEN Gorman has a holiday ritual that doesn’t involve counting down to midnight: She goes online looking for new hangover remedies. Her fiance tells her she should probably just drink less. Experts agree. In fact, the only way to prevent a hangover is to not get drunk. But to soften the blow, experts say, not drinking on an empty stomach tops the list because food helps absorb alcohol and delay toxic effects on the body. Drinking plenty of water before, during and after also helps because alcohol can dehydrate the body.

A CHURCH BUILT entirely of ice and snow has opened in Bavaria — a century after villagers first built a snow church in an act of protest. The church at Mitterfirmiansreut, near the Czech border, is more than 65 feet in length and boasts a tower. It’s made up of some 49,000 cubic feet of snow. The structure was bathed in blue light as it opened Wednesday evening with a blessing from Dean Kajetan Steinbeisser. The first snow church was built in 1911. Believers from the village built it because they didn’t have a church.





Casino workers save heart attack victim Man in stable condition at PA hospital BY PAUL GOTTLIEB PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

BLYN — The man had stopped breathing and was close to death as he lay on the floor of 7 Cedars Casino. But casino employees, including former Jefferson County Undersheriff Ken Sukert, helped revive him after he suffered a heart attack at about 2 p.m. Wednesday, casino security manager Robin Allen and Sequim Fire District No. 3 personnel said Thursday. The victim, a former 7 Cedars security employee, was listed in stable condi-

tion at Olympic Medical Center on Thursday morning. “They started CPR [cardiopulmonary resuscitation] immediately and continued to do it, and that played a huge role in contributing to his good outcome,” Sequim Fire District No. 3 Medical Safety Officer Bryan Swanberg said Thursday. Allen said he believes the man lives in the Sequim area and may be in his early 70s.

Totem Lounge He was sitting at the bar in the Totem Lounge next to the security podium when he fell out of his chair and landed flat on his back, Allen said. “I observed the entire event,” Allen said, adding

that he watched Sukert, a member of the casino’s security staff, spring into action. “He was with [him] within 15 seconds,” Allen said. Sukert, who was unavailable for comment Thursday, checked the victim’s vital signs. “There was no pulse, no breathing, and he [Sukert] began CPR,” Allen recalled. Casino information technology department employee Bob Foster, an emergency medical technician, took over the procedure from Sukert, Allen said. Clallam County Fire District No. 3 personnel, whose station is within a quarter-mile east of the casino, arrived within two minutes of being called and conducted CPR on the man

for about 25 minutes. “He was not breathing when we arrived,” Swanberg said. District personnel administered jolts from an automated external defibrillator, or AED. “After the third shock, he started to breathe on his own, and he got a pulse back at that point,” Swanberg said.

In the ambulance While an ambulance transported the victim to the hospital, he started to “come around,” resisting the medical apparatus he was tethered to, District No. 3 spokesman Patrick Young said. Brain death can start in three to five minutes of when a person stops breathing, Young said.

Sequim radio station KSQM welcomes its new manager Former Police Chief Spinks takes over unpaid position BY DIANE URBANI DE LA PAZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

SEQUIM — Former Police Chief Bob Spinks has landed a new job as boss of another kind of public operation. As of Sunday, he is general manager of KSQM 91.5 FM, Sequim’s public radio station. Salary: none. “I’m thrilled to step into this,” Spinks said in a statement this week. “Bob has a dynamic management background,” added Lynda Perry, president of KSQM’s board of directors. Spinks headed Sequim’s police force for five years before City Manager Steve Burkett asked him to resign in early 2010. Burkett said then Spinks was no longer a good match for the post. The Sequim City Council approved a severance package of some $31,000. When Spinks left the Sequim Police Department in July, he held a farewell cookout — dubbed a “Bob-rque” — at the nearby KSQM studios at 577 W. Washington St. He also vowed not to be a “wallflower” in Sequim. The loquacious law

enforcer had already begun hosting “The Five-O Show,” a program of nostalgic music, on Thursdays and Fridays from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. on KSQM. That was a volunteer gig, too. The nonprofit station began broadcasting in December 2008 and has since brought onboard 18 volunteer announcers and hosted numerous fundraisers, from dances to on-air pledge drives. Since Burkett told Spinks his days as Sequim police chief were numbered, he has sought work around the state and nation at police departments in Lebanon, Ore., West Richland, Pullman and most recently in Columbus, Miss.

Discussing opportunity None of those panned out, so Spinks began discussing this new opportunity with Jeff Bankston, KSQM’s volunteer general manager since 2009. Spinks was suffering from a sinus infection this week and was not available for further comment Thursday. The station’s board — Bankston, Perry, Clallam County Sheriff Bill Benedict, attorney and developer Larry Freedman, semi-

retired Realtor P a u l McHugh — approved Spinks’ hiring. A s S p i n k s Spinks becomes station chief New Year’s Day, Bankston will move to a newly created job as volunteer director of development and underwriting. Bankston said he’s able to continue unpaid since he lives on savings and investments. At his new post, Bankston will seek grants, legacy gifts, event sponsors and program underwriters to keep KSQM afloat. “Hopefully, if things go well, they will both be paid” at some future point, Perry said of Bankston and Spinks, adding that “they have both put in years” of volunteer service.

Fund drive

’70s, Bankston said. “Left to his own devices, Bob would play Led Zeppelin,” he added, “but we’re in it for the listeners,” who have expressed love for KSQM’s mellow sound. The station’s broadcast signal covers much of the terrain between eastern Port Angeles and Diamond Point. It’s available worldwide via the Internet at www. Music programming and community-event announcements air 24 hours a day.

Man to manage Bankston hailed Spinks as the man with the skills to manage the station — with its 100 on-air and support volunteers — as well as the time to devote to it. He and Spinks look forward to nearly quadrupling KSQM’s signal power, from 700 watts to 2,400, and replacing its Atterberry Road tower with a new one atop Blue Mountain by December 2013. Spinks has the skills to “bring us to a bigger, better place,” Bankston believes. “He’s just going to be a whiz-bang manager.”

In 2012, the station’s management team will gear up for a major capital fund drive for a new tower and more broadcast power, Bankston added. And though Spinks, 53, has made it known that he loves rock ’n’ roll, there will ________ be no changes in KSQM’s format.

2011 likely record year for crabbing THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OLYMPIA — The state Department of Fish and Wildlife said 2011 is likely to be a record year for the amounts of crab harvested by recreational crabbers in

the Puget Sound. The Kitsap Sun reported that about 2.1 million pounds of crabs were taken from Puget Sound waters in the summer season, which spans from July 1 to Labor

Day, with additional harvest coming during the fall and winter. Rich Childers of the state Department of Fish and Wildlife said he will tally the total amount of

crab after the catch reporting is completed Feb. 1. Based on the summer harvest, it appears more crabs were caught this year than any year since annual estimates were first made in 1996.

“We do CPR on a regular basis, and to have a survivable outcome because of the immediacy of CPR is the rarity,” he said, adding that too often, those who witness heart attacks are unwilling to start the emergency procedure. During CPR, a trained provider compresses the chest to create artificial circulation and provides breaths for a person who is not breathing and whose heart has stopped. “Immediate CPR supplements what’s left in the body and preserves the brain,” Young said. Automated external defibrillators also are key to preventing heart attacks from being fatal, Swanberg said. “We’re getting as many AEDs in the community as we can,” he said.

“Before we got there, they had an AED out and open and were trying to get it on.” Allen, the brother of Jamestown S’Klallam Tribal Chairman Ron Allen and casino Chief Operating Officer Jerry Allen, said employees undergo first-aid training twice a year. The last one was two months ago. Swanberg said he received an update on the victim’s condition Thursday morning. “He’s actually awake and talking to his family,” Swanberg said. “He doesn’t remember the incident.”

voters decide.” Others Democrats that said they were in the race include state Sen. Steve Hobbs, former state Rep. Laura Ruderman and political activist Darcy Burner. The Republicans have already drawn Snohomish County Councilman John Koster and business consultant James Watkins. Watkins said he expected the moderate composition of the district to trigger a genuine debate about the issues instead of partisan disputes. “I don’t think there’s a real interest in hearing someone getting up and giving a lot of political talking points,” Watkins said.

OLYMPIA — Political candidates lined up Thursday to compete in Washington’s open congressional seats, even though officials haven’t yet settled on the final district boundaries. Two members of the state’s redistricting commission have proposed making a new 10th District from Olympia to Tacoma. The 1st District left open by Rep. Jay Inslee would carve out new territory as a competitive seat stretching from east of Seattle to the northern border.

Port of PT accepts grant to build passenger ferry BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS


John Collins, left, talks to Superior Court Clerk Ruth Gordon and County Commissioner John Austin during a reception in Collins’ honor.


Collins leaves Port of PT position with accolades BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT TOWNSEND — John Collins received a painting with a maritime theme that is traditionally given to retiring Port of Port Townsend commissioners, but the cake at a reception in his honor had a personal message: “First reading, second reading, third reading, motion passed.” “John changed how we did things around here,” said Port Director Larry Crockett. “Before he came, they would just vote on stuff without discussing it.” About 30 people — including elected officials, port personnel and wellwishers — came to the port’s office on Hudson Street for the reception Wednesday afternoon. Collins is succeeded by

Steve Tucker, who was sworn in Wednesday for the District 1 seat on the port commission. Tucker ran unopposed and has said he would not have run if Collins had chosen to serve another term. Collins’ deliberative attitude originated from his educational background: He had worked more than 35 years as a professor of public service at various colleges around the country, including almost a decade at Seattle University, where he headed the Institute of Public Service.

‘Dream job’ After retiring, he moved to Port Townsend in 2004 and in 2007 won election to the port commission, something that turned out to be a “dream job.” He is leaving the com-

mission after one term “because there are still some things that I want to do,” Collins said. “He changed the tone of the port commission,” said Jim Pivarnik, port deputy director. “He incorporated the citizens into the decision-making process.” Added Crockett: “Every new commissioner brings a new toolkit to the job. “John filled a void that we sorely needed. “With his background in the university setting, he brought an orderliness, attention to procedures and a sense of business and budgeting that really helped us get our policies in order. “This was something that we didn’t pay much attention to previously.” Jefferson County Com-

PORT TOWNSEND — The Port of Port Townsend voted to accept federal grant money to build a passenger ferry between Seattle and Port Townsend over the dissent of one commissioner. Commissioners Leif Erickson and John Collins, who was attending his last meeting on the board Wednesday, voted in favor of receiving the grant while Commissioner Dave Thompson opposed the action. While Thompson’s vote was not needed to pass the measure, Collins nevertheless attempted to convince him. “I think we should address this with the proper skepticism, but for right now, we should allow it to move forward,” Collins said. “If I were to continue as a commissioner, I would not support anything that was not going to pencil out.”

missioner John Austin said Collins “handled this job with grace, civility and competence. “He had almost a scholarly approach and a sense of cooperation. “He reached out to, and got along well with, the other local governmental agencies.” Collins holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Washington and a master’s degree and doctorate from Northwestern University, where he specialized in the study of governance processes. He was the founding president of the Rat Island Rowing and Sculling Club.

Thompson wasn’t convinced. “I see this as being very narrow,” Thompson said. “It is primarily aimed at the business corridor and benefits main street businesses, but I don’t see how it benefits the entire community.” He also cited fuel cost estimates of about $1,000 per round trip. “I don’t think we have the ridership to support that,” Thompson said. The grant is for construction of the boat — expected to carry 49 passengers. It will be operated by Puget Sound Express. The service is scheduled to begin in August 2013.

$20-$25 per trip Given fares of $20 to $25 per trip, the service could generate more than $2,000 per day with a full ridership, port officials have said. Proponents of the idea, including Port Director Larry Crockett and Deputy Director Jim Pivarnik, said the service will be geared toward tourists and the potential ridership exists. The ferry’s schedule would also be adjusted to accommodate rider numbers, they said. The next step in the process will take place Jan. 10, when Crockett and Pivarnik meet with U.S. Department of Transportation representatives in Seattle. After several public meetings, the port is expected to call for bids to build the boat.

PORT ANGELES — If you write short stories, essays or poetry, or if you’re an artist, photographer or songwriter, think about wading into Tidepools. The annual literary and art magazine published by Peninsula College is a showcase for writers, musicians and artists in Clallam and Jefferson counties — and the submission deadline is almost upon us: All submissions must be postmarked by Wednesday, Jan. 11. In the contests for space in Tidepools, writers may enter poetry as well as short stories and essays under 3,000 words. Photographers, musicians and other artists are also encouraged to enter their creations for consideration for this 48th edition of the magazine. The entry fees are $5 per submission for adults and $2.50 per piece for youths

age 6 to 17. At the same time, writers and artists may submit work outside the contests. These entries will be considered for publication and require no entry fee. Co-sponsored by the Peninsula Daily News and Peninsula College’s Associated Student Council, Tidepools showcases the contest-winning entries, plus other submissions the Tidepools staff selects. Contest judges are “blind,” in that they do not see the entrants’ names, said Michael Mills, the Peninsula College professor who oversees magazine production. Cash prizes to the winners in the adult and youth

categories for poetry, prose, art, photography and music are $100 for first place in each adult category and $25 for each youth category. Second- and third-place winners are guaranteed publication. Winners of the Tidepools contests will be announced March 9.





Fund: Program’s goal is ‘hand up, not a handout’ CONTINUED FROM A1 These are your neighbors, with nowhere else to turn. These are local people that OlyCAP (nonprofit Olympic Community Action Programs, the Peninsula’s No. 1 emergency-care agency) wouldn’t have been able to assist otherwise. The Peninsula Home Fund — which began in 1989 — is carefully rationed every year. With heavy demand again this year, only a few dollars are left from the 2010 campaign and will go with the new money right away to make sure no one falls through the cracks during the dark, days of winter, the most demanding time of the year.

Home Fund specifics ■ A safety net for local residents when there is nowhere else to turn. From Port Townsend to Forks, from Quilcene and Brinnon to Sequim and LaPush, the Home Fund provides hot meals for seniors, meeting rent, energy and transportation needs, warm winter coats for kids, home repairs for the low-income, needed eyeglasses and prescription drugs, dental work, safe and drug-free temporary housing . . . The list goes on and on. But the Home Fund is not a welfare program. 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 was about $95 per family. But even though the dollar figures are small, the impact can be big, in huge, life-changing ways. Instances of help are designed to get an individual or family through a crisis — and every effort is made to put them back on the path to self-sufficiency. That’s the “hand up, not a handout” focus of the fund. In many instances, Peninsula Home Fund case managers at OlyCAP work

Give voice to your heart A GIFT OF any size is welcome. The Peninsula Home Fund has never been a campaign of heavy hitters. If you can contribute only a few dollars, please don’t hesitate because you think it won’t make a difference. Every gift makes a difference, regardless of its size.

To delay may mean to forget. with individuals or families to develop a plan to become financially stable — and avoid a recurrence of the emergency that prompted aid from the fund. And, as needed, Peninsula Home Fund contributions are often used in conjunction with money from other agencies, enabling OlyCAP to stretch the value of the contribution. OlyCAP oversees the Home Fund for the PDN, screening the applicants and distributing the funds. ■ No money is deducted by Peninsula Daily News. Every penny goes to OlyCAP to help the most vulnerable members of our community, from infants to families to seniors. Because of the extraordinary demand experienced by OlyCAP in 2011 — and plummeting cutbacks in grants and government support — for the first time in the 22-year history of the Home Fund, OlyCAP will use a portion of the fund in 2012 to pay for the helping hands who see clients. The amount will be limited to 10 cents of every dollar donated. The fund is not set up to

hand out money passively. OlyCAP can no longer absorb the costs of managing all the facets of the Home Fund — screening applicants, providing counseling and carefully disbursing the funds — without financial assistance. It must tap a small portion of the fund this year as tough times compound the challenges it faces to help those in need. ■ Your personal information is kept confidential.

KENNEWICK — A Kennewick woman who forced underage girls to have sex with men has been sentenced to one year in jail — an exceptionally low sentence for the felony charges. The Tri-City Herald reported that 20-year-old Melissa Marie Salsbury and her husband recruited girls, ages 17 and 18, to work as dancers. But once under her com-

mand, she would rent hotel rooms and force the girls to have sex with paying customers. Detectives found out about her operation when one of the girls sought help from a school counselor. The standard sentence range for her crime is seven to 10 years in prison. But Benton County Judge Craig Matheson granted the exceptional sentence Wednesday after finding “substantial and compelling reasons exist” to justify it, including that Salsbury had been similarly exploited when she was younger.

Burglars spooked WALLA WALLA — A shotgun wielding 71-yearold Walla Walla man managed to scare off a pair of burglars from his home. The Walla Walla UnionBulletin reported that Roy Schellenberg armed himself with his shotgun after hearing noises in his house. He saw a man run down the stairs while a second man came out of a room next to him and attempted to grab the shotgun. Schellenberg fell down the stairs but managed to hang onto the shotgun. The burglar then fled. The Associated Press

CONTINUED FROM A1 “January will be closer to normal,” Neher said. Long-range forecasts indicate the next two months may even be wetter than normal, he said. At lower elevations, there has been a noted lack of December rain.

Brinnon driest city Brinnon was the driest city on the Peninsula, measuring only 0.01 inches of rain, compared with a normal amount of 8.65 inches for December. Chimacum and Port Townsend each recorded 0.3 inches of rain. Chimacum usually receives 4.24 inches of rain for the month, while Port Townsend gets 2.55 inches of rain. Port Angeles and Sequim each had 0.44 inches of rain, well short of the usual 4.25 and 2.71 inches for December. Rainfall since Saturday has been widespread but light. By Thursday afternoon, Port Angeles received an additional 0.51 inches, while Quilcene got 1.51 inches.


After what had been an exceptionally dry December on the North Olympic Peninsula, rain falls on pedestrians outside the Clallam County Courthouse in Port Angeles on Wednesday. NWS weather observers record daily rainfall totals for their home area, then turn their charts in to the National Weather Service to be entered in the record. Official records will be determined once the month is over and complete December rain charts are collected, he said.

inches Thursday, and up to 5 inches of additional snow is forecast to fall by Saturday. Burger said the location where the snow is measured is away from the ski areas, which are windswept and have considerably less snow than the area where snow is measured. For now, the lack of snow is affecting local businesses, including All Points Charters & Tours, which provides twice-daily van service from downtown Port Angeles to Hurricane Ridge. “I’ve only been up three times this year,” said Willie Nelson, owner and operator of the tour service. Nelson said his business has suffered as fewer people are interested in visiting a snowless snowplay area, and the road has been clear, so those who do make the trip simply drive themselves. All that began to change over the weekend as wet winter weather finally moved into the region. “Six inches of snow fell last night, and another 6 inches are expected tonight,” Nelson said Tuesday. With the return of falling snow, Nelson already had reservations for today and Saturday, he said.


Hurricane Ridge

Overall, the snowpack in the Olympic Mountains — which supplies rivers during warmer months — is about 84 percent of normal, said Scott Pattee, Natural Resources Conservation Service water supply specialist. “Early in the season, it’s not a big deal. There is a lot of season to go,” Pattee said. Pattee is worried about an increased danger of avalanches caused by unseasonably high temperatures. “Tuesday, there were several record highs at the SNOTEL [snow telemetry] sites,” he said. Temperatures were even warmer Wednesday, he said. When wetter weather finally returned this week, it fell as rain on the snow, Pattee said. The wet, heavy snow that results from rain falling on snow encourages snow to let loose and slide, he said. Mostly, the lack of snow is affecting people who enjoy snow sports. “The conditions are not

That is welcome news for Olympic National Park, said Janis Burger, interpretive ranger for Hurricane Ridge, where the dry December translated to disappointment for some. There is enough snow for snowshoe guided walks and some cross-country skiing, Burger said, adding that some snowboarders have already been using the area, even with less-thanideal conditions. But the downhill skiing season has yet to begin. Conditions are expected to change very quickly. The “bunny hill” rope has been installed and is ready, but there isn’t enough snow on the slope, Burger said. “The lift will open later in the season,” she said. Craig Hofer, manager of the Hurricane Ridge ski area, has said 3 more feet of snow is needed to open the ski lift. ________ It’s fairly common for the Hurricane Ridge ski area to Reporter Arwyn Rice can be open late, Burger said. reached at 360-417-3535 or at The snow depth at Hur- arwyn.rice@peninsuladailynews. ricane Ridge stood at 41 com.

Body: Autopsy CONTINUED FROM A1 A Seattle pathologist was scheduled to perform an autopsy on the remains late Thursday. Either a family member or a representative of law enforcement was expected to visit the body for identification purposes, Beezley said. The body was spotted shortly before 3 p.m. Wednesday by a man and a woman who were taking photographs of the bay, Beezley said. It had washed up in the area formally occupied by the Tidal Bowl, which was dismantled this month.

It was “badly decomposed and had been in the water for some time,” Beezley said. The couple called 9-1-1 emergency dispatch, and firefighters, Port Townsend police officers and the Jefferson County prosecuting attorney, acting as the county coroner, arrived. The body was taken to a waiting car at about 4 p.m. and transported to Kosec Funeral Home in Port Townsend.

Forks, which averages 104.5 inches of rain each year, had recorded only 1.54 inches of rain in December by Saturday, well below the month’s low record of 3.63 inches and far below the average December rainfall of 18.9 inches, according to the National Weather Service. “It’s been quite pleasant, actually,” said Forks Mayor Bryon Monohon. There hasn’t been a lot of discussion of the dry spell in town, Monohon said. “People have been counting their blessings,” he said. That changed Saturday, and by Wednesday afternoon, 5.18 additional inches of rain had fallen at Quillayute Airport, bringing the total up to 6.72 inches. The late rainfall prevented a new record and pushed the annual rainfall to 105.71 — 5 inches more than the 101.64 inch average, with more days of rain forecasted before the end of the year. However, Forks’ December recovery may be the exception, and other places on the Peninsula may still end up recording a record dry December, Neher said. Before the storms began, on Dec. 24, Neah Bay measured 2.52 inches of rain in December, well short of its average rainfall of 16.47 inches for that month. How much additional rain will fall before midnight Sunday is unknown, but a number of old records are likely to fall, Neher said. Some cities don’t have official weather stations that can be monitored for daily totals.

EDITOR’S NOTE — During 2012, Port Angeles will begin construction on an ambitious project to redevelop its waterfront as an attractive venue for residents and tourists. Here’s a progress report on this project — and related city improvements — by Port Angeles City Manager Kent Myers.




The Port Angeles waterfront west of the ferry terminal will look something like this artist’s conception in a year, when construction of an esplanade is scheduled to be completed. The esplanade will step down from Railroad Avenue, bringing people closer to the water, which is now bordered by riprap rock. Final plans were approved by the City Council, and construction drawings are now being prepared by Zenovic Engineering, a key partner of the WTIP team. Recently, 60 percent construction drawings were presented to City Council. Final construction plans will be completed early in 2012. The permitting process for Phase 1 of the waterfront improvements is underway, and six wayfinding sign prototypes were installed in the downtown

area. In 2012, the city has allocated $3.5 million to begin construction of Phase 1 of the waterfront improvements between the ferry terminal and Oak Street. Construction should begin by summer. The city is pursuing grants for future phases of the waterfront improvements. A new entryway feature and up to 80 wayfinding signs should be installed in 2012. The city’s success in imple-

menting the waterfront improvements and other AIA study recommendations has been recognized by the Washington State American Planning Association. Also, the city’s Community and Economic Development director made presentations at a number of recent conferences on progress with the AIA study. The city is committed to implementing the improvements included in the AIA study to enhance our city for residents and visitors.

Drone spy plane used in arrests




ARMED WITH A search warrant, Nelson County (N.D.) Sheriff Kelly Janke went looking for six missing cows on the Brossart family farm in the early evening of June 23. Three men brandishing rifles chased him off. Janke knew the gunmen could be anywhere on the 3,000-acre spread in eastern North Dakota. Fearful of an armed standoff, he called in reinforcements from the state Highway Patrol, a regional SWAT team, a bomb squad, ambulances and deputy sheriffs from three other counties. He also called in a Predator B drone. As the unmanned aircraft circled two miles overhead the next morning, sophisticated sensors helped pinpoint the three suspects and showed they were unarmed. Police rushed in and made the first known arrests of U.S. citizens with help from a Predator, the spy drone that has helped revolutionize modern warfare. But that was just the start. Local police say they have used two unarmed Predators based at Grand Forks Air Force Base to fly at least two dozen surveillance flights since June. The FBI and Drug Enforcement Administration have used Predators for other domestic investigations, officials said. “We don’t use (drones) on every call out,” said Bill Macki, head of

‘Interior support’ The previously unreported use of its drones to assist local, state and federal law enforcement has occurred without any public acknowledgment or debate. Congress first authorized Customs and Border Protection to buy unarmed Predators in 2005. Officials in charge of the fleet cite broad authority to work with police from budget requests to Congress that cite “interior law enforcement support” as part of their mission.

Peninsula Daily News


Michael Kostelnik, a retired Air Force general who heads the office that supervises the drones, said Predators are flown “in many areas around the country, not only for federal operators, but also for state and local law enforcement and emergency responders in times of crisis.” But former Rep. Jane Harman, D-Calif., who sat on the House homeland-security intelligence subcommittee at the time and served as its chairwoman from 2007 until early this year, said no one ever discussed using Predators to help local police serve warrants or do other basic work. Using Predators for routine law enforcement without public debate or clear legal authority is a mistake, Harman said. In 2008 and 2010, Harman helped beat back efforts by Homeland Security officials to use imagery from military satellites to help domestic terrorism investigations.

For decades, U.S. courts have allowed law enforcement to conduct aerial surveillance without a warrant. They have ruled that what a person does in the open, even behind a backyard fence, can be seen from a passing airplane and is not protected by privacy laws. But privacy advocates say drones help police snoop on citizens in ways that push current law to the breaking point. “Any time you have a tool like that in the hands of law enforcement that makes it easier to do surveillance, they will do more of it,” said Ryan Calo, director for privacy and robotics at the Stanford Law School’s Center for Internet and Society. “This could be a time when people are uncomfortable, and they want to place limits on that technology. “It could make us question the doctrine that you do not have privacy in public.”

Iowa’s a nice state — but this? ONLY DAYS UNTIL the Iowa caucuses! Can you believe it? Fewer than 8,000 minutes to go! Perhaps this would be a Gail good time to Collins point out that the Iowa caucuses are really ridiculous. Not Iowa itself, which is a lovely place despite being the only state besides Mississippi to never have elected a woman as governor or a member of Congress. (See if you can get to work on that, Iowa.) It has many things to recommend, including the Iowa State Fair, which, in my opinion, really sets the planetary pace when it comes to butter sculptures. Iowa does have terrible winters. Which limits participation in the caucuses, where attendance is already restricted to registered voters who are prepared to show up for a neighborhood meeting at 7 p.m. on Jan. 3. The Republicans, who are really the only game in town this year, hope to get more than 100,000 participants. That is approximately the number of people who go to Michigan Stadium to watch the Wolverines play football. However, the Wolverines’ fans do not get free cookies. Maybe the Republicans will hit 150,000! That is about the same number of people in Pomona, Calif. Imagine your reaction to seeing a story saying that a plurality of people in Pomona thought Newt Gingrich would be the best GOP presidential candidate. Would you say, “Wow! I guess Newt is now the de facto frontrunner?”

Possibly not. Iowa caucus-goers are supposed to be particularly committed citizens who can make informed choices because they’ve had an opportunity to personally meet and interact with the candidates. Some of that does happen. In 2008, at the Democratic caucus I attended in Des Moines, there was unusually high support for Bill Richardson, mostly from people who said he had been to their house. “Caucuses tend to foster more grass-roots participation,” said Caroline Tolbert, a professor at the University of Iowa and author of Why Iowa? — a question we should all be asking ourselves. But, this year, the major candidates haven’t even spent all that much time in Iowa. Until recently, Gingrich only showed up for book signings and the occasional brain science lecture. And Iowa is actually not very good at picking the ultimate winner. The theory is that its caucuses winnow the field, that if you can’t manage to come in at least fourth, you are presidential toast. (John McCain came in fourth in 2008, with the support of 15,500 Iowans. This is approximately the number of people who live on my block in New York City.) It’s that fourth-place goal that has Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum and Rick Perry staggering around the state trying to visit all 99 counties and eat at least one meal a day at a Pizza Ranch outlet. (Pizza Ranch is a Christianbased, Iowa-based chain that has found success in the conviction that pizza tastes best in a cowboy-themed setting.) “We have a good plan, and

people like us,” Santorum told The Des Moines Register this week. “I hear this all the time. “They say, ‘We really like you. You are on my list. You are No. 2 or No. 3 or No. 1,’ and that is a good place to be.” People, if you had spent the last year doing virtually nothing but visiting with small clumps of voters across the state of Iowa, would you be energized when somebody told you he had you No. 3 on the list? On Tuesday, our Iowa voters will go off to 1,774 local caucuses, most of which will be held somewhere other than the normal neighborhood polling place. Those who figure out where to go will have to sit and listen to speeches on behalf of all the candidates. Scratch anybody who was hoping to dash out of work during a coffee break. History suggests that in some rural districts, the entire caucus will consist of one guy named Earl. History also suggests that the majority of the caucus-goers will be social conservatives, which is perhaps a clue as to why Rick Perry discovered this week that he was actually against abortion even in the case of rape or incest. To summarize: On Tuesday, there will be a contest to select the preferred candidate of a small group of people who are older, wealthier and whiter than American voters in general, and more politically extreme than the average Iowa Republican. The whole world will be watching. The cookies will be excellent.

The year in Obama scandals, denials WITH 2011 DRAWING to a close, it is time to account. As an early-and-often chronicler of Chicago-on-the-Potomac, I am amazed at the stubborn and clingy persistence of President Barack Obama’s snowblowers in the media: See no scandal, hear no scandal, speak no scandal. Dartmouth College profesMichelle sor Brendan Nyhan asserted Malkin in May — while Operation Fast and Furious subpoenas were flying on Capitol Hill — that “one of the least remarked-upon aspects of the Obama presidency has been the lack of scandals.” Conveniently, he defines scandal as a “widespread elite perception of wrongdoing.” So as long as left-wing Ivy League scribes refuse to perceive something to be a scandal — never mind the actual suffering endured by the family of murdered Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, whose death came at the hands of a Mexican cartel thug wielding a Fast and Furious gun walked across the southern border under Attorney General Eric Holder’s watch — there is no scandal! Self-serving much? This after the year kicked off in January with the departure of lying eco-radical czar Carol Browner. In back-room negotiations, she infamously bullied auto execs to “put nothing in writing, ever.” The previous fall, the White House’s own oil spill panel had singled out Browner for misleading the public about the scientific evidence for the administration’s Draconian drilling moratorium and “contributing to the perception that the government’s findings were more exact than they actually were.” The Interior Department inspector general and federal judges likewise blasted drilling ban book-cooking by Browner and

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, who falsely rewrote the White House drilling ban report to doctor the Obama-appointed panel’s own overwhelming scientific objections to the job-killing edict. In February, federal Judge Martin Feldman in Louisiana excoriated the Obama Interior Department for defying his May 2010 order to lift its fraudulent ban on offshore oil and gas drilling in the Gulf. He called out the administration’s culture of contempt and “determined disregard” for the law. This spring saw rising public anger over the preferential Obamacare waiver process (which I first reported on in September 2010). Some 2,000 lucky golden ticket winners were freed from the costly federal mandates — including a handful of fancy restaurants in Aloha Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco district, the entire state of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s Nevada and scores of local, state and national Big Labor organizations, from the Service Employees International Union and Teamsters on down. Meanwhile, as The Hill newspaper reported last month, other not-so-lucky Republican-led states seeking waivers, such as Indiana and Louisiana, were rejected. Obama’s health and human services secretary, Kathleen Sebelius, faced separate legal questions over her overseer role in a hair-raising document-shredding case when she served as governor of Kansas. In October, a district judge in the Sunflower State suspended court proceedings in a high-profile criminal case against the abortion racketeers of Planned Parenthood. Bombshell court filings showed that Kansas health officials “shredded documents related to felony charges the abortion giant faces” and failed to disclose it for six years. That same month, Bloomberg News columnist Jonathan Alter gushed: “There is zero evidence . . . of corruption. Where is it?” Alter’s declaration of the “Obama Miracle” came just weeks after the politically driven half-

billion-dollar Solyndra stimulus “investment” went bankrupt, prompting an FBI raid and ongoing criminal and congressional probes of the solar company funded by top White House bundler and visitor George Kaiser. As Solyndra and an avalanche of other ongoing green subsidy scams erupted, so did the LightSquared debacle — a federal broadband boondoggle involving billionaire hedge fund managers and Obama donors Philip Falcone and George Soros. In September, two high-ranking witnesses — William Shelton, the four-star general who heads the Air Force Space Command, and National Coordination Office for Space-Based Positioning, Navigation and Timing Director Anthony Russo — exposed how the White House had pressured them to alter their congressional testimony and play down concerns about LightSquared’s interference threat to military communications. The White House continues to block efforts to gain information about the Federal Communications Commission’s approval of a special waiver for the company, even as new government tests this month showed that the company’s “signals caused harmful interference to the majority of . . . general-purpose GPS receivers.” The Obama White House closed out the year with Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri demanding a probe of the smelly $443 million no-bid smallpox antiviral pill contract with Siga Technologies — controlled by big lefty donor Ron Perelman. All this — and so much more — yet erstwhile “conservative” journalist Andrew Sullivan of Newsweek/The Daily Beast scoffed: “Where are all the scandals promised by Michelle Malkin?” There’s none so blind as those who will not see.

Wring out the old, ring in the NEW





Initiative would legalize pot in state Some patients’ groups against proposed measure BY RACHEL LA CORTE THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OLYMPIA — Supporters of an effort to legalize and regulate the recreational use of marijuana in Washington state plan to turn in signatures this week to qualify their initiative. New Approach Washington expected to turn in more than 355,000 signatures to the Secretary of State’s Office sometime Thursday, said the group’s campaign director, Alison Holcomb. An initiative to the Legislature requires at least 241,153 valid signatures of registered state voters to be certified, though the Secretary of State’s Office suggests at least 320,000 as a buffer for any duplicate or invalid signatures.

Initiative 502 would create a system of statelicensed growers, processors and stores, and impose a 25 percent excise tax at each stage. Those 21 and older could buy up to an ounce of dried marijuana; 1 pound of marijuana-infused product in solid form, such as brownies; or 72 ounces of marijuana-infused liquids. It would be illegal for a motorist to have more than 5 nanograms of THC — the active ingredient of cannabis — per milliliter of blood in their system. “This is an issue whose time has come, both here in Washington and nationwide,” Holcomb said. Once the initiative goes to the Legislature, it has to

take action during the upcoming 60-day legislative session that begins Jan. 9 or the measure automatically goes to the November ballot. The initiative has several high-profile sponsors, including former Seattle U.S. Attorney John McKay and travel guide Rick Steves.

Conflict with feds A spokeswoman for Gov. Chris Gregoire said she has concerns about the legalization initiative because of the conflict with the federal government, which still says the drug is illegal. “Even if this were to pass, we’d still have to deal with federal law,” said spokeswoman Karina Shagren. Shagren said Gregoire would prefer to focus on getting clarity when it comes to medical marijuana laws.

juana users will be subject to arrest because of what they see as an overly strict intoxicated-driving limit. On its website, the group wrote that the limit listed in the initiative would “subject patients to highly invasive blood testing, unnecessary confinement and a criminal conviction that will haunt them for life.” “We want to legalize it too but not at the expense of those who use cannabis to successfully treat terminal and debilitating diseases,” the group said on the website. Another group opposed to I-502, the Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs, cited concerns about increased use among young people, increased cases of drugged driving and conflict with federal Patients Against I-502 law. A group called Patients “We just don’t think that Against I-502 has expressed it’s the right thing for state concern that medical mari- government to tell its citi-

She noted the governor’s focus is on a recent petition that she and Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee filed with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration asking the agency to reclassify marijuana so doctors can prescribe it and pharmacists can fill the prescription. Washington state already has a voterapproved medical marijuana law that gives doctors the right to recommend — but not prescribe — marijuana for people suffering from cancer and other conditions that cause “intractable pain.” Some marijuana legalization supporters are opposed to the current initiative.

zens to do something that can get them arrested by federal officers,” said Don Pierce, the group’s executive director. Holcomb said she believes the initiative would withstand a court challenge and hoped that “the federal government will extend I-502 at least the same respect it has extended to state medical marijuana laws.” Washington isn’t the only state considering marijuana legalization. Colorado will vote next year if a similar measure there makes the ballot. Supporters there are expected to turn in signatures in the coming weeks to qualify for the November ballot.

Washington man arrested with marijuana wrapped as gifts THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho — A Springdale man faces felony marijuana trafficking charges after an officer found 3.3 pounds of marijuana wrapped up as Christmas gifts during a traffic stop in northern Idaho. Jason D. Palmer, 36, was arrested Dec. 22 as he returned from a trip to

Montana, where he had been visiting family, the Coeur d’Alene Press reported Thursday. Kootenai County sheriff’s officials said Palmer was stopped east of Coeur d’Alene because his vehicle was repeatedly changing lanes and following other drivers too closely. The officer said he smelled marijuana as he approached the vehicle.

“When I made contact at the window, the odor increased its potency,” the deputy wrote in his report. Palmer told the officer he was a medical marijuana cardholder and had a small amount of “medicine” in the vehicle. “I asked him what was in the presents, and he stated some ‘sweaters,’” the deputy wrote. A drug-sniffing dog indi-

cated the packages contained drugs, and officers opened them, court records said. Deputies also seized $800 in cash Palmer had with him.

Children arrested Palmer’s 12- and 14-yearold sons, who were in the vehicle with him, face charges of frequenting a

location where drugs are known to be. The boys were arrested because deputies believed they had knowledge of the presence of drugs, court records said. A phone message left for prosecuting attorney Barry McHugh seeking information on the charges the children faced was not immediately returned. Palmer has been

released after posting a $20,000 bond, and a preliminary hearing is set for Jan. 13, court records said. The judge ordered a public defender be appointed for Palmer. A phone listing for Palmer in Springdale could not be located. He works at a hydroponics supply store in north Spokane.

Jump into New Year Polar bear plunges set across Peninsula BY ROB OLLIKAINEN ARWYN RICE



Meanwhile, the 18th Nordland Polar Bear Dip at Mystery Bay will take place at the Nordland Store dock Sunday at noon. The store will be open from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. for dippers to warm up and get hot chocolate, and plungers can get a hat or towel commemorating the event. Nordland Store clerk John Malcomson has participated in the past just for the T-shirt, he said. “It was very invigorating,� he said with a laugh. No wet suits will be allowed, but Malcomson offered a few tips for a more pleasant dip. “Wear water shoes so you can get out right away and not wait for the ladder,� he said. And hold your breath no matter what, Malcomson warned. “When you hit the water, you’ll be tempted to gasp,� he said. At just that moment, the water closes over the dipper’s head, he explained, and gasping will result in breathing water, not air.

Dan Welden tried to explain the logic of submerging oneself in a frigid body of water on New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day like this: Do your most foolish thing of the year on the first day of the year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Get it out of the way,â&#x20AC;? he said. Welden is the organizer of the popular Port Angeles Plunge, which is held every Jan. 1 at Hollywood Beach. He estimates that between 50 and 100 participants will take the community plunge Sunday, with another 150 or so looking on. The plunge will take place at 10 a.m. Some participants warm up by running the Port Angeles Waterfront Trail before galloping into a 45-degree Port Angeles Harbor. Welden said he inspected the beach Wednesday and liked what he saw. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now, it looks really good,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was a lot of sand there and not a lot of kelp and seaweed.â&#x20AC;? In past years, participants would find pieces of seaweed in their hair days after the plunge, Welden said. Now in its 24th year, the Port Angeles Plunge started with three people the first year and grew exponentially in subsequent years, Welden said.

Bothell’s housing bust leads to more forest BY NOAH HAGLUND EVERETT HERALD


Joy Johnston walks past one a several overgrown structures in Bothell earlier this month in a forest that has been purchased by the city for preservation as a wooded park with trails. who represented the Boy Scouts in the transaction. “The Scouts took a big discount on this,” Zemp said. “They felt it was the right thing to do.” The Boy Scouts’ local branch, the Chief Seattle Council, had owned the land since the late 1970s. A family originally donated the acreage so the Boy Scouts could raise money by developing it, Zemp said. Lately, however, the Scouts have been selling off properties to focus on its core mission of serving youth, rather than branching into property management.

Undeveloped land The acreage the city just bought is part of an undeveloped, wedge-shaped tract of 64 acres. Friends of North Creek Forest hopes to buy another 6-acre piece with a $100,000 federal grant, Freese said. Bothell intends to keep the woods as a passive park, meaning there are few plans to alter the landscape beyond trail building and interpretive signs. “The Bothell City Council, city staff and our citizens worked for years to bring together the public-private partnership that has preserved this beautiful forest,” Bothell Mayor Mark Lamb said. Money for the purchase came partly from property

taxes collected for Snohomish County’s Conservation Futures program. There also was a grant from the Washington State Department of Commerce. King County’s Conservation Futures program and parks levy covered the price for the portion of the woods south of the King-Snohomish County line. Bothell straddles both counties. The woods stand about a mile northeast of downtown Bothell. One main asset is its close proximity to an estimated 9,000 students, Freese said. The goal is to turn the area into a living biology laboratory for students of all ages, “from K through Ph.D.” The woods border Canyon Park Junior High School to the north and a wetland-restoration project to the south maintained by the University of Washington’s Bothell campus. Cascadia Community College and other schools are nearby as well. The deal, closed Dec. 15, stems from a decade of work started by another grassroots group, Help Our Woods. The Friends group, which shares many of the same members, formed in February and has since put in an estimated 3,000 hours or more of volunteer effort into research, grant writing and networking.


BOTHELL — From the freeway, it looks like just another patch of woods ripe for new housing development once the economy revives. From the air, the forested stretch along Interstate 405 reveals itself as part of a green ribbon buffering an active salmon creek. The appearance of a “sold” sign in mid-December marked a 35-acre patch of western red cedar, western hemlock and Douglas fir as property of the city of Bothell, a Seattle suburb. “They were just getting ready to build on it when the housing crisis hit,” said Jim Freese, the volunteer serving as interim director of the Friends of North Creek Forest group that helped the city buy the land. The idea is to keep the woods as a nature preserve for the fast-developing area surrounding North Creek, which drains much of south Snohomish County and flows into the Sammamish River and Juanita Bay on the north end of Lake Washington. The woods, on a steep, eastern-facing slope, provide a nearly mile-long natural filter for water that drains into the salmon-spawning stream on the other side of I-405. The woods also provide habitat for an array of fauna that includes pileated woodpeckers, black-tailed deer, coyotes and salamanders. “This is the biggest piece of the puzzle and some of the very best land,” said Woody Wheeler, a consultant who has been working with the Friends group. “It’s really an integral part of a much larger ecosystem.” The city paid the Boy Scouts of America $460,000 for the land. That’s a steep markdown from its current appraisal of $700,000. The land could have fetched at least $1 million during the building boom a few years ago, said Bryan Zemp, a real estate agent

PA celebration to benefit charity Night to include food, dancing, balloon drop BY DIANE URBANI DE LA PAZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — Saturday night brings an opportunity to celebrate life — by ringing in 2012 and reaching out across the world. The eighth annual New Year’s Eve at the Elks Naval Lodge features a lavish buffet, classic rock and modern dance hits by Mister Sister, a silent auction and a dessert auction, all to benefit Hilda’s Hope for Life, the Port Angeles-based charity founded by Arlene Blume. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and the buffet laid out at 7 p.m. Dishes include seafood chowder, miniature flatiron steaks, crab artichoke dip, Thai chicken satay, Asian salad, Mediterranean pastries and fruit and cheese platters. At midnight, “we’ll do a balloon drop and the whole nine yards,” promised Blume, the Elks’ club manager. Tickets are $45 person or $315 for a table for eight and include dinner plus party favors and champagne at midnight. To make reservations, phone 360-457-3355. Tickets will also be sold at the door of the Elks Lodge, which is upstairs at

131 E. First St. Blume traveled to Kampala, Uganda, for the first time back in 2004. There, she met many ailing children, including baby Hilda. Hilda weighed only about 3 pounds and had such a severe case of thrush that she had to be fed with an eyedropper. A few weeks after Blume returned home to Port Angeles, she received word that Hilda hadn’t survived — but that news did not daunt her a bit.

Uganda charity She formed Hilda’s Hope for the other Ugandan children — and their caregivers — who are coping with diseases such as tuberculosis and HIV. Hilda’s Hope raises funds to send the youngsters to school and even college, in the case of Sister Margaret, a young woman who has completed a degree in medicine and is now a practicing physician in Uganda. “People say, ‘Why are you doing this? Why don’t you do something here?’” Blume said earlier this week. “We have so many more resources” by comparison in the United States. In Uganda, people with HIV are considered unemployable — until they

In addition to the ticket revenue, proceeds from the silent auction, dessert auction and wine bar will all go to Hilda’s Hope for Life. Mister Sister will start

its show at 9 p.m. with music from the 1960s on up to current hits, all delivered through a state-of-the-art sound system, said drummer and vocalist John Frichette.

‘Great room’ The Elks lodge “is a great room. We do special effects, lights and fog to make it a production,” he promised. The band’s repertoire

ranges from The Beatles’ “I Saw Her Standing There” to Billy Idol’s “Rebel Yell” to Maroon 5’s “Moves Like Jagger.” Frichette said his band especially enjoys working on New Year’s Eve, since people cut loose a bit more on the dance floor. Blume, already in a party mood, said the buffet and dessert auction of treats from local restaurants will make this event a

particularly delectable one. “It’s going to be a total riot,” she said, “and the food’s going to be unreal.” It’s a way to support children who otherwise have very little, Blume said. Then she added a trite-yettrue point: “Our children are our future.”

Zoning complaint PITTSFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. — The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Detroit is reviewing a religious discrimination complaint against a community for rejecting a zoning change that would allow construction of a Muslim school. The Michigan Islamic Academy wants to build at a 26-acre site in Washtenaw County’s Pittsfield Township. “We are reviewing the matter and whether to proceed with a formal investigation,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Judith Levy said. On Oct. 26, the township board rejected the request, following an earlier rejection by the township planning commission. School officials said the 200-student school is too big for its location in nearby Ann Arbor. Township Supervisor Mandy Grewal said the decision isn’t based on religion. The Council on American-Islamic Relations said the decision violated the First Amendment right of religious freedom, and it asked the Justice Department to investigate.

ISSUES OF FAITH demn themWilson selves and others from their experiences. The learning that brings fulfillment and happiness is the deeper wisdom and understanding that sees God as fully present in every experience. Understanding our relationship to God is like the sun at noonday to the soul. It dispels the gloom, banishes the shadowy monsters and fully reveals the truth. This truth sets us free from regrets and the past. As stated in Proverbs 3:13-14, “Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gets understanding, for the gain from it is better than gain from silver and its profit better than gold.”

Kosher prison diet issue in ACLU talks THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

INDIANAPOLIS — The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana has asked a judge to hold the state Department of Correction in contempt for failing to provide four inmates with kosher food. Ken Falk, an ACLU attorney, said Correction officials haven’t complied with a 2010 federal court order requiring kosher meals be offered for inmates observing Jewish

dietary laws. The inmates are in state prisons in Michigan City, Pendleton and Putnamville. An Orthodox Jewish inmate sued in 2009 after the agency began substituting vegan meals for kosher meals, citing higher costs. A spokesman for the Correction Department said the agency has a process for reviewing kosher diet requests that it believes complies with the court order.

ONE NEVER KNOWS where one will find insight. For instance, recently I read a quarterly bulletin from an investment firm — not usually inspirational reading. One article mentioned that fulfillment in retirement is negatively impacted by regrets about the past. Although we often define success by our achievements, we can also define success as what we accept and learn from our life experiences. The article went so far as to say that true success is developing our authentic wisdom and understanding from our unique life experiences. What an extraordinary insight. It reminded me of Edward Hays’ story “The Magic Folger’s Coffee Can.” A young boy was given a magic coffee can and told that the secret to happiness was to fill the can to the brim. So he sought to fill the can his entire life. All his possessions and achievements went into the can, but it was never filled. He ultimately died quite unhappy.

Measure of success in loving life

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The newly elected president of North Carolina’s largest religious denomination said he hopes for a civil debate over a proposal to ban samesex marriage in the state constitution. The Rev. Mark Harris, president of the Baptist State Convention of North

Carolina, said he understands the question is an emotional one. But Harris said he thinks both sides can respectfully argue their cases. Harris was elected to a one-year term last month. The convention represents roughly 4,300 churches and some 1.3 million members in North Carolina.

BP’s Gulf restitution

$ Briefly . . .

Tourism gets boost; question is: Will it last? beachside merchant near the display, said a few days after the Christmas lights were turned on and the ice rink opened in early December. “There weren’t that many people over there skating, and that is a lot of money to spend.” The seven counties spent $2.5 million on promotions alone. In Perdido Key, officials purchased $12,500 worth of BP gas cards for tourists who present receipts showing they’ve stayed in the area, essentially putting BP funds back into the company’s pocket. Alison Davenport, chair of the Perdido Key Chamber and Visitors Center, said the goal is to get tourists driving to the area next spring.


PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. — Sports towels and fleece blankets. A poker tournament. A $1 million Christmas display. A prom . . . for senior citizens. BP gas card giveaways. A “most deserving mom” contest. And advertising — lots of advertising. Florida Panhandle officials made the mix of eyebrow-raising purchases with $30 million BP gave them earlier this year to help tourism recover from 2010’s disastrous Gulf oil spill. The money allowed seven area tourism bureaus to try promotions they could never have afforded otherwise, and it has propelled the Panhandle’s visitor counts to record numbers this year following a disastrous season right after the spill.

No BP debate

But what’s next? The question now is what happens when the BP money dries up, most likely next April. The grants doubled and tripled the tourism-promotion budgets in these Panhandle counties, and officials worry the boost in visitors may prove fleeting. “It is one thing to have your numbers go up when a tremendous amount of money is being put not only in our economy, but in all of north Florida,” said Curt Blair, executive director of the Franklin County Tourist Development Council. “We will see after April whether part of this was a real recovery . . . or if we see falloff. . . . Whether we’ve done that or if we’ve just propped up the market.” BP announced the $30 million tourism grants in April.

Ray Palmer, director of the Pensacola Sports Association, displays a sports towel and fleece blanket that were among the tourism-promotion items funded by British Petroleum. While the agreement for the money doesn’t prevent Florida from pursuing any claims against BP or others, officials there decided a week later not to join other Gulf states in a lawsuit against Transocean, the owner of the Deepwater Horizon rig at the heart of the spill. Separately, BP had already given $150 million into the four Gulf states in the months after the oil spill — with few strings attached. Recipients were Alabama, Florida, Louisiana and Mississippi, with the Sunshine State getting the lion’s share — $62 million. In the more-recent pay-

out, Florida Panhandle counties allocated more than $23 million of the $30 million through September, with $13.5 million used on television, digital, radio and print advertising. The counties have also spent millions on a variety of attention-grabbing gimmicks, The Associated Press found through public records requests and interviews. Some wonder whether the most extravagant promotions — such as Panama City Beach’s $1 million Christmas display — are worth it. “It wasn’t all that busy out here last weekend,” Charles Walsingham, a

“We had no hesitation in choosing BP gas cards over any others since BP’s grant money has made the incentivized travel promotion possible,” she said. Tourists stayed away through much of the summer of 2010 after clumps of gooey tar washed ashore during the spill. Pensacola Beach got a heavy coating of gunk for a day or two, but beach towns further east saw mostly smaller tar balls. Tourism experts said the area’s image suffered from months of news footage of oiled beaches. Visitors came back in droves in 2011. In many counties, tourism is up as much as 20 percent over last year. “It appears the . . . efforts have been successful,” said BP spokesman Craig Savage. “The campaigns, plus pent-up consumer demand, have made 2011 a banner year for tourism in the Panhandle.”

Saudi jet fighter deal sealed Boeing to build F-15s; U.S. not tying pact to Iran threat THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

HONOLULU — The sale of $30 billion worth of F-15SA fighter jets to Saudi Arabia has been finalized, boosting the military strength of a key U.S. ally in the Middle East to help counter Iran, the Obama administration announced Thursday. Under the agreement, the U.S. will send Saudi Ara-

bia 84 new fighter jets and upgrades for 70 more. Production of the aircraft, which will be manufactured by Boeing Co., will support 50,000 jobs and have a $3.5 billion annual economic impact in the U.S., the White House said. The sale is part of a larger U.S. effort to realign its defense policies in the Persian Gulf to keep Iran in check.

The announcement came as U.S. officials weighed a fresh threat from Tehran, which warned this week it could disrupt traffic through the Strait of Hormuz, a vital Persian Gulf oil transport route, if Washington levies new sanctions targeting Iran’s crude exports. Administration officials said the timing of Thursday’s announcement was not tied to the new threat from Tehran. But they did make clear that the fighter jet sale would help Saudi Arabia counter potential troubles

with Iran. The fighter jet sale is part of a larger 10-year, $60 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia that also includes helicopters, a broad array of missiles, bombs and delivery systems, as well as radar warning systems and night-vision goggles. Congress gave the deal the go-ahead about a year ago. The White House announced the agreement with Saudi Arabia from Hawaii, where President Barack Obama is vacationing.


WASHINGTON — Americans are hopeful for what 2012 will bring for their families and the country, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll, though most say 2011 was a year they would rather forget.

The poll found 68 percent of Americans described 2011 as a bad year, compared with 29 percent who felt it was a good one. But 62 percent are optimistic about what 2012 will bring for the nation, and more, 78 percent, are hope-

ful about the year their family will have in 2012. The poll found consumers are sensing the change. Just 18 percent of adults expect consumer prices to rise at a faster pace in the coming year, the lowest share to say so since the poll first asked the question

in March. Most (51 percent) expect prices to rise at the same rate or more slowly. According to the poll, 37 percent expect economic improvement in the next 12 months, compared with 24 percent who think the economy will slide downhill.

CHARLESTON, S.C. — Three employees of Boeing Co. in South Carolina have filed an unfair labor practice charge against a union recently at the center of a national dispute. The National Right to Work Foundation said the complaint filed Wednesday with the National Labor Relations Board says the International Association of Machinists retaliated against workers at the nonunion plant. Earlier this month, the NLRB dropped a lawsuit against Boeing, moving to end the case after the Machinists approved a four-year contract extension with the manufacturer. The NLRB lawsuit said Boeing broke labor laws when it opened a North Charleston production line, punishing unionized workers in Washington state for past strikes, and argued Boeing should return work there. Boeing said it needed the South Carolina plant for valid economic reasons.

Jobless claims up WASHINGTON — The number of people seeking unemployment benefits rose last week after three weeks of decline. Even with the gain, applications remained at a level consistent with modest hiring. And the broader trend over the past month suggests job growth could

pick up further in the new year. Weekly applications increased by 15,000 to a seasonally adjusted 381,000, the Labor Department said Thursday. The four-week average, a less volatile measure, dropped for the fourth straight week to 375,000. That’s the lowest level since June 2008. “Despite the rise in the weekly claims data, the longer-term trend . . . suggests that the recovery in the labor market is maintaining its momentum,” said Michael Gapen, an economist at Barclays Capital, in a note to clients. Applications generally must fall below 375,000 — consistently — to signal that hiring is strong enough to reduce the unemployment rate.

Ship heads to Alaska to help iced-in city International red tape may keep Russian tanker at sea BY MARY PEMBERTON THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A Russian tanker slowed by ocean currents kept to its mission this week to deliver petroleum products to an iced-in Alaska city — even as international red tape thwarted the journey. Mark Smith, CEO of Vitus Marine, said Wednesday that the 370-foot tanker Renda was making more than 250 miles a day and was reported to be 545 miles south-southwest of Attu in Alaska’s Aleutian Islands. Earlier in the week, it encountered heavy waves that slowed its speed to about 10 mph, the Coast Guard said. If everything goes as planned, the tanker could arrive in Nome by the second week in January.

“We understand the Healy is a profoundly capable ice breaker. There is absolutely no question it is absolutely suitable for the mission.” MARK SMITH CEO of Vitus Marine Kip Wadlow. Nome normally gets fuel by barge, but a huge storm this fall prevented the last delivery before winter. Now, the plan is to have the Russian tanker deliver 1.5 million gallons of petroleum products. The tanker left Russia in mid-December and headed to South Korea, where it took on more than 1 million Renda, a Russian oil tanker, steams toward Dutch Harbor, Alaska. gallons of diesel fuel.

International laws

Fierce storm

If recent history means anything, that is unlikely. So far, the laws of four nations have had to be considered — Russia, South Korea, Japan and the United States. Before the tanker can dock at the Dutch Harbor fishing port in the Aleutians to load gasoline, it will need to pass an inspection to operate in U.S. waters. Then it will need a waiver of federal law to load the gasoline and bring it to Nome — that is, if it can go through 300 miles of sea ice around the city of about 3,500 people. “It is challenging,” said Coast Guard spokesman Chief Petty Officer

From there, it was to go to Japan and load 400,000 gallons of gas, but international shipping regulations and fierce weather scuttled that plan. The tanker was in the Sea of Japan when the ship was informed it was too small to pull up to the refinery dock. The idea was to have another ship transfer the fuel to the tanker when a storm blew that plan away. A decision was made to head to Alaska and load gasoline at Dutch Harbor. It then will take four to five more days to reach Nome in what officials said would be the first winter delivery of fuel products by

sea to a western Alaska community. The tanker, however, must first get through hundreds of miles of sea ice. That is where the Coast Guard’s only functioning ice breaker — the Seattlebased Healy — comes in. The Healy is going to break ice for the Russian tanker. “We understand the Healy is a profoundly capable ice breaker,” said Smith of Vitus Marine, the fuel supplier. “There is absolutely no question it is absolutely suitable for the mission.” The Healy was due back to its home port in Seattle just before Christmas, but the Coast Guard extended its mission by a month to


assist the fuel effort. Smith said the Renda is an “ice-class” vessel that has spent its career following Russian ice breakers that go across the northern route. It often makes deliveries resupplying vessels and communities without assistance, he said. The depth of the water will prevent the Healy from getting any closer than about one mile from the port of Nome, Wadlow said. The tanker is equipped with a long hose for offshore delivery, but that plan comes with a host of safety concerns, he said. “It would be extremely unfortunate if there was an accident — a spill on the ice,” Wadlow said.

Petraeus urged to quit over drawdown, book says BY KIMBERLY DOZIER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — Fourstar general-turned-CIA director David Petraeus was urged to resign as Afghanistan war commander over President Obama’s decision to quickly draw down surge forces, according to a new insider’s look at Petraeus’ 37-year Army career. Conservative writer Max Boot had urged he take that course of action, but Petraeus decided that resigning would be a “selfish, grandstanding move with huge political ramifications” and that now was “time to salute and carry on,” according to a forthcoming biography. “Director Petraeus has publicly stated that he never contemplated resignation,” CIA spokeswoman Jennifer Youngblood said Thursday.

Biography in January Author and Petraeus confidante Paula Broadwell had extensive access to the general in Afghanistan and Washington for All In: The Education of General David Petraeus, due from Penguin Press in January. The Associated Press was given an advance copy.


A new book says general-turned-CIA director David Petraeus was urged to resign over President Barack Obama’s decision to quickly draw down forces from Afghanistan. The account traces Petraeus’ career from West Point cadet to his command of two wars deemed unwinnable: Iraq and Afghanistan. Co-authored with The Washington Post’s Vernon Loeb, the nearly 400-page biography is part history lesson through Petraeus’ eyes, part hagiography and part defense of the counterinsurgency strategy he applied in both wars. Critics of counterinsurgency argue the strategy has not yet proved a success, with violence spiking in Iraq after the departure

of U.S. troops, and Afghan local forces deemed ill-prepared to take over by the 2014 deadline. The book unapologetically casts Petraeus in the hero’s role, as in this description of the Afghanistan campaign: “There was a new strategic force released on Kabul: Petraeus’ will.” Broadwell does acknowledge that Petraeus rubs some people the wrong way. “His critics fault him for ambition and self-promotion,” she writes. But she adds that “his energy, optimism and will

to win stand out more for me.” The book also is peppered with Petraeus quotes that sound like olive branches meant to soothe Obama aides who feared Petraeus would challenge their boss for the White House. “Petraeus tried to make clear that he and Obama were in synch,” Broadwell writes of Petraeus’ Senate testimony on the Afghan war. The book describes Petraeus’ frustration at still being labeled an outsider from the Obama administration, even as he retired from the military at Obama’s request before taking the job last summer as the CIA’s 20th director. The book depicts Petraeus’ rise at an unrelenting, near-superhuman pace. He starts his career as a fiercely competitive West Point cadet known as “Peaches,” where he famously wooed the school superintendent’s daughter, Holly Knowlton. He went on to command the 101st Airborne Division as part of the invasion of Iraq, then masterminded the rewrite of the Army and Marine Corps’ counterinsurgency training manual before returning to com-

mand the surge in Baghdad. He was then appointed to head Central Command, overseeing the campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as military affairs across much of the Gulf and the Mideast. He accepted a cut in authority and pay to lead the Afghanistan war campaign when Gen. Stanley McChrystal was forced to resign after a Rolling Stone article that “scorched the general [McChrystal] and his aides, caricaturing them as testosterone-addled frat boys as they insulted Obama” and other officials, Broadwell writes.

Lifted restrictions She describes how Petraeus’ first act was to lift McChrystal’s restrictions on the use of force — especially on airstrikes — if civilians were nearby. “There is no question about our commitment to reducing civilian loss of life,” Petraeus told his staff. There was, however, “a clear moral imperative to make sure we are fully supporting our troops in combat.” Broadwell adds that the problem, according to Petraeus, was less McChrystal’s order than how it was

even more strictly re-interpreted by lower commanders. In Broadwell’s account, Petraeus also faults McChrystal for overpromising and underdelivering in places like Taliban-riddled Marjah in the south, producing months of embarrassing headlines that hurt the war effort back in Washington. But the book also includes Petraeus’ own Rolling Stone-esque moment, when he was quoted badmouthing the White House in Bob Woodward’s latest book, Obama’s Wars. A frustrated Petraeus is described as telling his inner circle, on a flight after a glass of wine, that “the administration was [expletive[ with the wrong guy.” “Petraeus later expressed his displeasure to all of them for betraying his confidence,” Broadwell wrote. “But he knew he was ultimately responsible for making the intemperate remark,” a candid admission, through Broadwell, of his lapse in judgment. He also concedes the Afghan war is not yet won. “He had wanted to hand [Marine Corps Gen. John] Allen . . . a war that had taken a decisive turn,” Broadwell writes of what had been Petraeus’ goal for his successor.

Movie crowds dip to 16-year low as apathy lingers BY DAVID GERMAIN THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES — An “Avatar” hangover accounted for Hollywood’s dismal showing early this year, when revenues lagged far behind 2010 receipts that had been inflated by the huge success of James Cameron’s sci-fi sensation. But just what has kept the movie business in the dumps the rest of 2011 is anyone’s guess. A solid summer lineup helped studios catch up to 2010, but ticket sales flattened again in the fall and have remained sluggish right into what was expected to be a terrific

holiday season. The result — projected domestic revenues for the year of $10.15 billion, down 4 percent from 2010’s, according to box-office tracker Taking higher ticket prices into account, movie attendance is off even more, with an estimated 1.275 billion tickets sold, a 4.8 percent decline and the smallest movie audience since 1995, when admissions totaled 1.26 billion. “There were a lot of highprofile movies that just ended up being a little less than were hoped for,” said Chris Aronson, head of distribution for 20th Century Fox, whose sequel “Alvin

and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked” has been part of an under-achieving lineup of family films for the holidays. “The fall was pretty dismal. There just weren’t any real breakaway, wideappeal films.”

‘Twilight’ a hit Big franchises still are knocking it out of the park. “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” the finale to J.K. Rowling’s fantasy epic, was the year’s biggest earner and the topgrossing film in the series at $381 million domestically and $1.3 billion worldwide. “Transformers: Dark of

the Moon” pulled in $352 million domestically and $1.1 billion worldwide. “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1” climbed to $271 million domestically and $650 million worldwide. Other franchises did well in 2011 but came up short of their predecessors on the domestic front, among them “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” ‘‘The Hangover Part II,” ‘‘Kung Fu Panda 2,” ‘‘Cars 2” and “X-Men: First Class.” Strong overseas business has helped make up for shrinking domestic revenues and declining DVD sales. But 2011 was the second

straight year that domestic attendance declined sharply, and audiences generally have been shrinking since 2002, when admissions hit a modern high of 1.6 billion.

Sequel burnout It could be a case of the same-old same-olds, with fans growing tired of overfamiliar characters and stories. It could be overcrowded weekends such as Thanksgiving, when studios loaded up on family films that cannibalized one another’s audiences. It could be the economy, with fans growing more

selective on how often they spend their spare cash to catch a movie, particularly at a time when so many films play in 3-D with premium ticket prices. And it could be the times we live in, when audiences have so many gadgets to play with that they don’t need to go to the movies as much as they once did. “It’s not any one thing — it’s a little bit of everything,” said Jeff Goldstein, general sales manager at Warner Bros., whose Robert Downey Jr. sequel “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” has done solid business, yet is coming in well short of the first installment.





Sequim Library’s Kids Book Club to meet PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

The Sequim Library Kids Book Club will hold its first meeting of the new year at the library, 630 N. Sequim Ave., at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 17. The book selection is Project Mulberry by Linda Sue Park. Children ages 8 to 11 and their guardians are


welcome to attend. According to a Kirkus review of Project Mulberry, “no obstacle, real or imagined, can stop Julia Song and her best friend Patrick from entering a community farming-club contest. The two friends decide to grow silkworms from eggs to pupae and spin the silk into thread. Julia explores her anxiety about being ‘too

Korean’ and the confusing attitude about race that she sees when her mother meets Mr. Dixon, the older African-American man who generously shares his mulberry leaves with the children. [This is] a rich work that treats serious issues with warmth, respect and a good deal of humor.” Kids and adults should read the book before coming



to the book club, and they should begin the discussion at home. A primary goal of the library’s Kids Book Club is to make reading fun.

Carefully chosen Book selections are carefully chosen by librarians to be age-appropriate, of high literary value and to encour-

age a love of reading. The Kids Book Club will meet the third Tuesday of each month through March at 6:30 p.m. at the Sequim Library. Youth services librarian Antonia Krupicka-Smith leads the group. In February, the club will read Chasing Vermeer by Blue Balliett; in March, the title will be Year of the Dog

by Grace Lin. Copies of Project Mulberry and other titles in the discussion series are available at the Sequim Library and can be requested at Preregistration for this program is not required. For more information, phone Krupicka-Smith at 360-683-1161 or email

Upon discharge from the Navy, he, Delores and son David returned to the great Northwest woods where he worked as a high climber, rigger and foreman for Schaefer Brothers, Simpson, Bloedel and other logging companies. In 1949, a daughter, Philomena, was born while the family lived in Montesano, Washington. Jack’s brother, Billy Howard, brought him to Forks. He bought his first log truck and hauled logs to the ports of Aberdeen and Port Angeles for export. After 1951, he partnered with Don Rhyne, forming Edwards

Jack Edwards and Rhyne Logging Company. In 1966, he liquidated his assets, and Jack and Delores moved to Port Angeles in 1968. He was retired for a few years and then started his own company, Edwards Logging Company. This company remains today, owned and operated by his son, David. Jack thought of himself as a professor of logging. For many years, he attended logging congresses in Victoria. In 1996, he was Clallam County Logger of the Year, jointly with Don Rhyne.

Rain, rain go away PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

HEY SANTA, WHEN we asked for more water in the rivers for Christmas, we didn’t mean this much! From too much dryness to flooding. Go figure. As the old saying goes, be careful what you ask for. “From one extreme to the other,” said Brian Menkal of Brian’s Sporting Goods and More (360-683-1950) in Sequim. Steelhead anglers probably are feeling a little frustrated right now. And except for crabbing, which is good right now (but the season closes Saturday; we’ll get to that later), steelheading is the only game in town. The rivers were too low and clear for fishing the last couple of weeks — and now flooding has washed them out this week. Now is a good time for anglers to do maintenance on their reels and rods and other chores, Menkal suggests, and wait for the rivers to settle down. “Watch for the smaller rivers to come back into shape, such as the Dungeness, Calawah and Lyre,” Menkal said. The smaller rivers always come back sooner because the larger rivers have tributaries flooding into them. Good luck with the wait, though, because the forecast calls for rain, rain and more rain — with maybe a day respite here and there. Anglers don’t have to drive out to each river to check on them. They can do it from the comfort of their computers, Menkal said. The Real-Time water data site, at, gives daily streamflow conditions in all Washington rivers. “It gives real-time water data hourly,” Menkal said.

Two days to be crabby Instead of fretting about a lack of fishing, go out and do some crabbing, Menkal suggests. “Crabbing has been good,” he said. “It’s a great opportunity to go for it.” Actually, if you are going to go for it, go for it now. Puget Sound marine areas currently open for recreational winter crabbing will close at sunset Saturday, after which all sport crabbers licensed to fish for crab in the Sound will have a month to report their winter catch. State fishing rules require that all sport crabbers with winter catch record cards submit catch reports for the winter season to the state Department of Fish and Wildlife by Feb. 1 — even if they did not catch any crab. All Puget Sound marine areas will be closed to recreational crabbing starting Sunday until summer 2012. Sport crabbers should be aware that if they fail to submit a winter catch report, they will receive a $10 fine when they purchase their 2012 crab endorsement, said Rich Childers, state shellfish policy lead. “By submitting their catch data, crabbers play an important role in managing the Puget Sound crab fishery,” Childers said. “We need to hear from everyone who was issued a winter catch card.” To submit catch reports, crabbers may send their catch record card to Fish and Wildlife by mail, or file their report on a special webpage on the department’s licensing website. The mailing address is WDFW CRC Unit, 600 Capitol Way N., Olympia, WA 98501-1091. The online reporting system will be available Jan. 1-Feb. 1 at http://

Seattle safety Earl Thomas, voted to the Pro Bowl, gets the drop on San Francisco running back Kendall Hunter in Seattle on Saturday.

Second(ary) to none Hawks’ defensive backs could populate Pro Bowl BY TIM BOOTH THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Happy as a clam



RENTON — With one statement, Earl Thomas pointed out how promising the future could be. “I’m 22 years old, starting the Pro Bowl,” the Seattle Seahawks free safety said on Wednesday. “It’s crazy.” What was seen initially as a rash and perhaps misguided

move by Pete Carroll’s staff to completely overhaul the Seahawks secondary before the season has proved to be one of Seattle’s best moves. And not just for this season that nearly went from miserable to magical, but for years ahead.

Thomas might not be alone “So guys had to recogin representing the nize what those guys did on


the field this year and they’ve been that effective that they’ve been able to get past other people. “With respect to the process and the great players that are in the league, it’s a big statement about this group and the future that we can look forward to with them.” Of the current starters, Browner is the most surprising to emerge. Coming out of the Canadian Football League, Browner was picked on early in the season, most notably in Seattle’s Week 2 loss at Pittsburgh. But Browner has recovered to be tied for fourth in the NFL in interceptions with six, including two returned for touchdowns. He also is tied for the league lead in passes defensed, according to STATS LLC with 20. Browner and Sherman

are the type of cornerbacks that Carroll wants to have. Browner is listed at 6-foot-4, 221 pounds, while Sherman is 6-foot-3. But even with their size, the duo has been able to lock down shorter, shiftier receivers. “I feel like I got attacked early on in the season. They threw the ball my way,” Browner said. “I got balls thrown at me and made the best of it at times. I was up there in balls deflected. I was up there in interceptions. My play speaks volumes.” Because of the way Seattle’s cornerbacks have played, it’s allowed the Seahawks to do more with Thomas and Chancellor patrolling the middle. Thomas thought because of his lower interception numbers that he wouldn’t be in the running for a Pro Bowl spot.

But aside from interceptions is a number that’s even more critical to the Seahawks defensive success and might better define Thomas’ impact this season: limiting big plays. According to STATS LLC, Seattle ranked 31st in the NFL last season while giving up 76 plays of 20 or more yards either running or passing. Entering Sunday’s season finale at Arizona, Seattle is tied for second with Baltimore in the same category, giving up just 45 plays of 20 or more yards. “That has a tremendous amount to do with how he plays and the plays that he’s been able to stop and keep from even being attempted at us because he’s in the right positions and all,” Carroll said.

SPOKANE — Gonzaga has won a record 11 consecutive regular-season championships in the West Coast Conference, and the Bulldogs made it clear they plan to continue winning titles when they opened conference play with a 90-51 rout of Portland 90-51 on Wednesday night. “We wanted to set a tone for the league,” said Bulldogs center Robert Sacre, who scored 13 points. “Coming into league play can always be difficult. We always have a target on our backs.” Kevin Pangos hit 5 of 7 3-point shots and scored 19 points to lead Gonzaga (102). Sam Dower added 15 points for the Bulldogs, who have won five straight overall and 17 straight against Portland. Tim Douglas and Nemanja Mitrovic scored 10 points each for Portland (3-11), which has lost seven in a row. “Our young guys got a harsh welcome to the WCC,” Portland coach Eric Reveno said. The Bulldogs posted season bests in points scored, points allowed and fieldgoal shooting percentage (54.7). Portland recorded season worsts in points scored and field-goal shooting percentage (29.7). The Pilots, who ranked in the top five nationally in 3-point shooting percentage each of the previous three seasons, have struggled from beyond the arc this year. The Pilots hit just 4 of 20 3-pointers against Gonzaga to lower their season mark to 29.8 percent. Asked if he thinks the 3-point shooting woes have gotten into his players’ heads, Reveno said, “Yeah, I think so.” Pangos and Gary Bell Jr., both freshman guards, have been sinking 3-pointers and making big plays all season. Bell had six points and four assists against Portland. “Really good,” Reveno said of the duo. “Just really quality, skilled, toughness. Good athleticism. Just really nice players.” Gonzaga led 49-25 at halftime after shooting 60 percent from the field, including 6 of 10 on 3-point attempts. Pangos had 14 points in the first half, then played only six minutes after the break. No starter played more than 22 minutes. “His shot is so pure,” teammate Guy Landry Edi said of Pangos. “When he’s got his feet set, it’s nothing but going in.”

Outdoors: Presidents Day salmon derby set CONTINUED FROM B8 Tentative openings for early 2012 clam digging at Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis and Mocrocks beaches will be announced in early January by the state folks.

Wildlife meeting set The state Fish and Wildlife Commission will consider increasing the number of multiple-season hunting permits available each year after hearing public comments on the issue at a meeting scheduled Jan. 6-7 in Olympia. The commission, which sets policy for WDFW, also will accept public comments on proposed changes to the 2012 sportfishing rules, but will not take action on those proposals until its regular meeting in February.

The public meeting is scheduled to convene Jan. 6 at 9:30 a.m. and Jan. 7 at 8:30 a.m. in Room 172 of the Natural Resources Building, 1111 Washington St. S.E. in Olympia. An agenda is available on the commission’s website at http://wdfw.wa. gov/commission/. Multiple-season hunting permits allow selected hunters to hunt for deer or elk during all general hunting seasons, rather than having to choose among archery, muzzleloader or modern firearm seasons. Hunting data show that the wider range of options increases hunters’ chance of success in the field. State wildlife managers have proposed increasing the number multiple-season hunting permits available each year to 8,500 deer permits and 1,250 elk

permits. In 2011, the state conducted a drawing for 4,000 deer permits and 850 elk permits from among the hunters who paid an application fee. The wildlife managers say increasing those permit levels will not pose a risk to the state’s wildlife, adding that fees generated by applicants for a higher number of permits would be used to expand efforts to prevent property damage caused by wildlife. The public hearing on new fishing-rule proposal, scheduled Jan. 7, is the last in a series of public meetings held around the state in recent months. Changes proposed include: ■ Closing fishing early for steelhead and other game fish in several river systems in Puget Sound and along the Strait of

Juan de Fuca to protect wild steelhead. The early closures, ranging from mid-January to mid-February, would apply to the Nooksack, Skagit, Stillaguamish, Snohomish, Green and Puyallup river systems, along with several streams along the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The proposal also includes closing the upper section of the Samish River on Dec. 1 and the lower section Jan. 1 to fishing for all species. ■ Allowing anglers to fish with two poles on the Pend Oreille River and the lower Spokane River. ■ Closing fisheries on a number of small coastal streams that drain into Washington’s ocean waters to protect juvenile anadromous fish. ■ Changing the opening day of the lowland lake fishing season from the

last Saturday in April to the fourth Saturday in April. ■ Closing sturgeon retention in Puget Sound, as well as its tributaries. This proposal is designed to protect Columbia River sturgeon that venture into Puget Sound to feed. Under the proposal, catch and release fishing for sturgeon would still be allowed The deadline for submitting written comments on these and other proposed changes in state fishing rules ends today.

Salmon Derby The Olympic Peninsula Salmon Derby is set for Presidents Day weekend, Feb. 18-20. The blackmouth derby spans 500 square miles of fishing with five weigh sta-

tions and a $10,000 first prize up for grabs. For more information, visit gardinersalmonderby. org.

Fun ’n’ Advice






DEAR ABBY: I’m a 25-year-old woman with no future. I am the youngest of three daughters. My parents are divorced, and my sisters are both married. Mom has no income of her own, so it’s mainly me. I have come to realize that I’ll never be able to have an apartment of my own or fully live my life because of her. She’s controlling and always finds a way to make me feel guilty about going out or enjoying myself. I have never had a relationship because she has always found a way of sabotaging any relationship I’m in. I think she’s bipolar, but she doesn’t believe in medication or that it’s even real. I feel as if I’m being forced to take care of her, and when I finally have a chance to have a real life, it will be too late. I have discussed this with my sisters, but they haven’t helped. I’m very depressed and don’t know what to do. If I bring this up with Mom, she gets angry and won’t talk to me for days. Please help me find a way out. Trapped in Chicago

DEAR ABBY and have decided to take him back Van Buren and fight for what we had. He assured me that he wants to be only with me, that what he did was “stupid” and he has learned his lesson. Abby, though I have forgiven him, I can’t bring myself to forgive her. I have never been someone who holds a grudge, but I have so much hate for her that it scares me. I did get professional help, but it didn’t work. I don’t want to be like this. This is not who I am. I’m worried about how I might react when I see her. I can’t avoid her since we work in the same industry. Why can I forgive him but not her? Moving Forward in Texas


Dear Moving Forward: Probably because having invested three years in the “only man you have ever been with,” you don’t want it to have been for nothing — so you’re directing the anger you still feel toward him at the woman you would like to imagine seduced him. (Remember, it takes two to tango.) Also, you may still regard her as a threat. While you may have forgiven your boyfriend, do not forget what happened. A man who cheats and blames it on “stupidity” may do it again with someone else. You need to understand why he did what he did. Is he someone who lives only in the moment? Did he not consider how it would affect you? Is he capable of fidelity in the long run? From my perspective, you need answers to these questions because you may only now be getting to know who he really is.

Dear Trapped: Your umbilical cord was supposed to have been severed 25 years ago at birth. You are an adult individual who deserves happiness and freedom from this attachment to your mother. She may not believe in doctors and therapists — and that’s her privilege as long as she’s not a danger to herself and others. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t talk with a mental health professional about this unhealthy situation. Your sisters haven’t helped you because they have their freedom and don’t want to share the responsibility you have been carrying alone. And your mother doesn’t want to let go of you because if she does, she’ll have to assume responsibility for herself. Please act now. Your escape hatch is the door to a therapist’s office. You deserve a life, so go there and get one.

On an Alpha course, guests explore the Christian faith in a relaxed setting over ten thoughtprovoking weekly sessions and a weekend retreat. Each night guests will enjoy a meal and a talk on subjects as diverse as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who is Jesusâ&#x20AC;?, â&#x20AC;&#x153;How Can I Have Faith?â&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;How Can I Make the Most of the Rest of My Life?â&#x20AC;?
