Gay-marriage foes block legislation Petition seeks vote by public
Preserve Marriage Washington submitted the signatures a day before the state was to begin allowing same-sex marriages.
State to review filings BY MIKE BAKER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
OLYMPIA — Washington’s gay marriage law was blocked from taking effect Wednesday as opponents filed more than 200,000 signatures seeking a public vote on the issue in November.
State officials will review the filings to determine whether the proposed Referendum 74 will qualify for a public vote, though the numbers suggest the measure will make the ballot easily. “The current definition of marriage works and has worked,” said
Joseph BackALSO . . . holm, the chair ■ Local of Preserve residents Marriage react to the Washington, as news/A4 he stood next to stacked boxes of petitions. The law, passed by the Legislature and signed by Gov. Chris Gregoire earlier this year, would make Washington the seventh state with legal same-sex marriages. National groups have already promised time and money to fight
the law, including the Washington, D.C.-based National Organization for Marriage, which was involved in ballot measures that overturned same-sex marriage in California and Maine. It’s an issue that has implications across the ballot. President Barack Obama recently declared his support for gay marriage, and the referendum has split the state’s two candidates for governor. The state has had domestic
partnership laws since 2007, and in 2009 passed an “everything but marriage” expansion of that law, which was ultimately upheld by voters after a referendum challenge. A poll by a Seattle consulting firm Strategies 360 showed that 54 percent of voters think it should be legal for same-sex couples to get married, though the poll didn’t specifically ask them how they would vote on a referendum.

Lifelong Learning seeks consultant Agency to pay $25,000 for business plan help BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND — The Fort Worden Lifelong Learning Center Public Development Authority has entered into negotiations with a consultant for help developing a business plan for the evolving facility. The fee was listed as $25,000 in a request for qualifications published by the public development authority in May. The only respondent was Pros Consulting of Indianapolis Ind., the firm that had developed the 2008 business plan on which the new plan is to be based. “We received several calls from potential consultants, but given the scope of the work and the small amount of money involved, they all declined to move forward,” said Dave Robison, executive
director of the public development authority, at a Wednesday meeting. Members of the PDA board are scheduled to hold a conference call with a Pros representative today. The Pros proposal Robison says that the company has completed more than 800 planning and implementation projects as well as having finished “strategic planning and financial planning in five state park systems to assist agencies in transitioning to a more sustainable operating model.”
Sept. 1 deadline for plan The public development authority is supervising the establishment of the lifelong learning center model at Fort Worden and has until Sept. 1 to submit a business plan to the Washington state Parks and Recreation Board. A lifelong learning center is envi-

Two killed Sunday The bodies of Blanton and Ray — both shot multiple times — were found Sunday at their homes. Authorities said Drum told them he was targeting convicted sex offenders. Drum was arrested in a rugged area near Blue Mountain Road at about 2:30 p.m. Sunday after a manhunt that included 65 officers from city, state, county and federal law enforcement agencies. Kelly has 30 days after the arraignment to file the intention to seek the death penalty. The alternative would be to seek life imprisonment. A request by Kelly for a sentence of death for Drum upon conviction would suit Blanton’s wife, she said in an interview Wednesday.

sioned as part of the state park being developed into an academic campus that offers educational and recreational options. Robison said that at least one public meeting will be scheduled to discuss the plan, probably in August. Port Townsend resident Ted Shoulberg said that wasn’t enough. “We need you to formulate a process of involvement and let the people know what you will be talking about and what will be discussed,” Shoulberg said. Shoulberg said the money offered to the consultants “cannot be done with the money allocated.” Robison agreed that the money didn’t correspond with consultant standards but said the public development authority does not have the ability to pay more. In a financial statement submitted to the board, Robison reported that the public development authority will have assets of $946.45 after all projected expenses — including the consultant fee — are paid.
PORT ANGELES — The death penalty may be sought against accused double-murderer Patrick B. Drum of Sequim, Clallam County Prosecuting Attorney Deb Kelly said Wednesday. The 34-year-old was charged Wednesday in the murders of Jerry W. Ray, 56, of 31 Heuslein Road in Port Angeles and Gary L. Blanton Jr. of 5011 Sequim-Dungeness Way in Sequim. Blanton and Drum lived at the same residence. Drum, smiling in court as he did Monday in his first county Superior Court appearance, was formally charged as he sat before Judge George L. Wood. He was charged with two counts of aggravated first-degree murder, one count of firstdegree burglary and, as a convicted felon, one count of first-degree unlawful possession of a firearm in connection with the shooting deaths of Ray and Blanton. Wood ordered that Drum continue to be held without bail in the Clallam County jail and set his arraignment for 1 p.m. Wednesday.

New TV show prize to go to survivalists THE SPIKE TELEVISION network is airing a competition this fall to award a fortified bunker to a family that believes the end of the world is near. Seriously. The network said Tuesday that its six-episode series called “Last Family on Earth” will feature survivalists competing to show how tough and resourceful they are. The winner gets an underground bunker in an undisclosed location.

RAY BRADBURY, 91, a master of science fiction whose imaginative and lyrical evocations of the future reflected both the optimism and the anxieties of his own postwar America, died Tuesday in Los Angeles. The science fictionfantasy master spent his life conjuring such visions from his childMr. Bradbury hood in 1997 dreams and Cold War fears, spinning tales of telepathic Martians, lovesick sea monsters and, in uncanny detail, the high-tech, book-burning future of Fahrenheit 451. All of them, in short stories, in the movie theater and on the television screen, would fire the imaginations of generations of children and adults across the world. Years later, the sheer volume and quality of his work would surprise even him. “I sometimes get up at night when I can’t sleep and walk down into my library and open one of my books and read a paragraph and say: ‘My God, did I write that? Did I write that?’ Because it’s still a surprise,” Mr. Bradbury said in 2000. More than 8 million copies of his books have been sold in 36 languages. They include the short-story collections The Martian Chronicles, The Illustrated Man and The Golden Apples of the Sun, and the novels Fahrenheit 451 and Something Wicked This Way Comes. Although none won a Pulitzer Prize, Mr. Bradbury received a Pulitzer citation in 2007 “for his dis-
tinguished, prolific and deeply influential career as an unmatched author of science fiction and fantasy.” Mr. Bradbury broke through in 1950 with The Martian Chronicles, a series of intertwined stories that satirized capitalism, racism and superpower tensions as it portrayed Earth colonizers destroying an idyllic Martian civilization. Chronicles prophesized the banning of books, especially works of fantasy, a theme Mr. Bradbury would take on fully in the 1953 release Fahrenheit 451. Inspired by the Cold War, the rise of television and the author’s passion for libraries, it was an apocalyptic narrative of nuclear war abroad and empty pleasure at home, with firefighters assigned to burn books instead of putting blazes out (451 degrees Fahrenheit, Mr. Bradbury had been told, was the temperature at which texts went up in flames). It was Bradbury’s only true science-fiction work, according to the author, who said all his other works should have been classified as fantasy.

TODAY IS THURSDAY, June 7, the 159th day of 2012. There are 207 days left in the year. Today’s Highlights in History: ■ On June 7, 1892, Homer Plessy, a “Creole of color,” was arrested and fined for refusing to leave a whites-only car of the East Louisiana Railroad; his case went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, which at the time upheld “separate but equal” racial segregation, a concept overturned in 1954 by Brown v. Board of Education. On this date: ■ In 1654, King Louis XIV, age 15, was crowned in Rheims, 11 years after the start of his reign. ■ In 1712, Pennsylvania’s colonial assembly voted to ban the fur-
ther importation of slaves. ■ In 1769, frontiersman Daniel Boone first began to explore presentday Kentucky. ■ In 1776, Richard Henry Lee of Virginia proposed to the Continental Congress a resolution stating “that these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States, that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown.” ■ In 1862, William Bruce Mumford, a Confederate loyalist, was hanged at the order of Union military authorities for tearing down a U.S. flag that had been flying over the New Orleans mint shortly before the city was occupied by the North.
■ In 1942, the World War II Battle of Midway ended in a decisive victory for American forces over the Imperial Japanese. ■ In 1981, Israeli military planes destroyed a nuclear power plant in Iraq, a facility the Israelis charged could have been used to make nuclear weapons. ■ In 1998, in a crime that shocked the nation, James Byrd Jr., a 49-year-old black man, was hooked by a chain to a pickup and dragged to his death in Jasper, Texas. Two white men later were sentenced to death for the crime; a third received life with the possibility of parole. ■ Ten years ago: A yearlong hostage crisis in the Philippines
involving a U.S. missionary couple came to a bloody end as Filipino commandos managed to save only one of three captives, American Gracia Burnham. ■ Five years ago: After three days in jail for a reckless-driving probation violation, Paris Hilton was released by Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials to be sent home under house arrest. The next day, a judge ordered Hilton back to jail, where she spent 2½ weeks. ■ One year ago: Moammar Gadhafi stood defiant in the face of the heaviest and most punishing NATO airstrikes to date, declaring in an audio address carried on Libyan state television, “We will not kneel!”

Syria sanctions near, White House warns Treasury secretary calls for maximum financial pressure BY BRADLEY KLAPPER AND JULIE PACE THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is warning Syria that U.N. sanctions may be near, as Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton headed to Turkey on Wednesday to talk strategy with America’s allies and seek a way to win Russia’s support for a plan ending the Assad regime. Russia and China, however, who have blocked such sanctions before, issued a joint statement reiterating their opposition to any imposing of “regime change” in the violence-racked country, where some 13,000 people have
died in uprisings against President Bashar Assad’s leadership and a brutal government crackdown on the opposition. The warning Geithner was delivered by Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, who called for the world to exert “maximum financial pressure” on Assad’s government. He argued that “strong sanctions can help hasten the day the Assad regime relinquishes power” but acknowledged penalties alone cannot bring needed change.
In remarks Geithner planned to deliver to a Friends of Syria group, he said that unless Syria shows “meaningful compliance” with U.N. efforts to end the violence, the U.S. and other countries will “join in taking appropriate actions against the Syrian regime, including, if necessary, Chapter 7 action in the U.N. Security Council.” A Chapter 7 resolution authorizes actions that can include the use of military force, which administration officials — for now — are playing down as a possibility. Russia’s Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Hu Jintao issued a statement essentially saying “no dice” to U.N. sanctions. “China and Russia strongly oppose any attempt to address the Syria crisis with military interference from the outside,” the Xinhua News Agency reported.

But the wounds are deep following the rancor of the recall, which was spurred by Walker’s surprise proposal to go after public employee unions. State Rep. Peter Barca, Democratic minority leader in the Assembly, said it won’t be easy. “I hope Gov. Walker understands and stays true to his pledge to build consensus,” he said. With nearly all precincts reporting, Walker had 53 percent of the vote, compared with 46 percent for Barrett. The margin of victory was wider than many expected and slightly better than Walker’s 5.8 percentage-point victory over Barrett in the 2010 race.

World: ‘Band of Brothers’ honored at D-Day ceremony
VOTERS IN TWO major California cities overwhelmingly approved cuts to retirement benefits for city workers in what supporters said was a mandate that may lead to similar ballot initiatives in other states. Public employee unions weren’t able to overcome the simple message supporters used to attract voters in San Diego and San Jose: Pensions for city workers are unaffordable. The result is reduced public services in the form of such things as limited hours at public libraries and unfilled potholes. “The public is frustrated,” said San Diego Councilman Carl DeMaio, who staked his mayoral bid on the measure.
FIVE CHARRED BODIES found in a smoldering SUV in the Arizona desert apparently are a missing family in a murder-suicide case rather than victims of drug smugglers, as first suggested by Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu. Tempe Police Sgt. Jeff Glover said the vehicle found about 30 miles south of Phoenix belonged to the Butwin family and that, based on evidence, “detectives pursued this incident as a murder-suicide investigation.” The Arizona Republic reported that James C. “Jim” Butwin, 47, a Phoenixarea businessman with three children, was going through a divorce and faced financial and medical problems.
A JURY WAS selected Wednesday in the child molestation scandal that brought down Joe Paterno, and the makeup of the panel left no doubt this is Penn State country. The seven women and five men who will hear opening statements Monday in the case against former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky include an engineering administrative assistant at the college, a dance teacher in its continuing education program and a professor who has been on the faculty for 24 years. They also include a woman who’s been a football season ticket holder since the 1970s.

Drum was in and out of jail and prison between July 1998 to March 2009 for charges generated in Clallam, Jefferson and Kitsap counties that included residential burglary, second-degree burglary, tampering with a witness, drug possession, possession of stolen property and unlawful issuance of checks, according to the state Department of Corrections.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Thursday, June 7, 2012 PAGE
Time for declaration of independents IN HIS 2007 book, The Great Upheaval: America and the Birth of the Modern World, 1788-1800, historian Jay Winik writes that among Thomas Jefferson, AlexCal ander Hamilton and James Thomas Madison, none “believed in political parties, which they feared would lead to ‘rage,’ ‘dissolution’ and eventual ‘ruin’ of the republic.” The latest poll from the Pew Research Center, “Partisan Polarization Surges in Bush, Obama Years,” seems to indicate that the American people have come around to their way of thinking. The poll, writes The New York Times, found that “the share of self-identified Republicans has declined over the last two decades to about 24 percent of the country, from about 31 percent..” The Times continues: “The share of Democrats has stayed about steady — to 32 per-
cent, from 33 percent — while the share of independents has risen to 38 percent, from 29 percent.” And while “Americans of different races are no more polarized in their political views than they were 25 years ago,” suggests the Times, the poll indicates that “Republicans have moved farther to the right — on economic issues, at least — than Democrats have move to the left,” and the parties “appear to have lost some of the people who were closer to the middle of the political spectrum and retained those closer to the extremes.” In short, more Americans are ditching the big two political parties, leaving hardliners behind. The result? Political stagnation. So much for well-reasoned debate and consensus. So much for moving the country forward. What appears to frustrate voters is that not enough members of either party seem capable or interested in solving our problems. Instead, their primary concern appears to be achieving and holding onto power and the perks of office. Democrats answer the prob-
lem of increasing debt with more debt. Republicans want to reduce the size and cost of government, but won’t make meaningful cuts. The media play a major role in perpetuating the gridlock by mostly ignoring solutions, focusing instead on the political horse race and the names politicians call each other. The response from Democrats to a serious proposal for repairing health care as proposed by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., was a TV ad in which an actor portraying Ryan tossed an elderly woman in a wheelchair over a cliff. This is not a serious response to a serious proposal. It is street theater. A major reason for government’s inability — even unwillingness — to repair its own dysfunction is that we are still living off the inertia of government’s central role during the Great Depression, and later “The Great Society,” in which government presented itself as everyone’s savior. Personal responsibility for one’s life and accountability for wrong decisions took a back seat.
Peninsula Voices Liquor prices Hey, Washington, how do you like those new lower liquor prices? Last November, voters approved an initiative to privatize the state liquor stores in hopes of new lower liquor prices and more competition. The state Office of Financial Management estimated it would collect $60 million to $70 million more per year in liquor taxes as a result if the voters approved the initiative. Today we see the results — higher liquor prices than the state was charging, a lot less selection for the consumer and nearly 1,000 people added to the unemployment rolls. Seems the backers of the initiative were really a wolf in sheep’s clothing. The lesson? Read any initiative on the ballot in its entirety
A Time for Governing: Policy Solutions from the Pages of National Affairs, a new book compiled by the quarterly journal, National Affairs, contains essays that address credible solutions to our major economic problems that nearly everyone, regardless of party affiliation, acknowledges must be solved for a stable American future. In his essay “Beyond the Welfare State,” National Affairs editor Yuval Levin addresses the heart of the problem: “Human societies do not work by obeying orderly commands from central managers, however well-meaning; they work through the erratic interplay of individual and, even more, of familial and communal decisions answering locally felt desires and needs.” Levin adds: “In our everyday experience, the bureaucratic state presents itself not as a benevolent provider and protector, but as a corpulent behemoth — flabby, slow and expressionless, unmoved by our concerns, demanding compliance with arcane and seemingly meaningless rules as it breathes musty air in our faces and sends us to the back of the line.
“Unresponsive ineptitude is not merely an annoyance. The sluggishness of the welfare state drains it of its moral force. “The crushing weight of bureaucracy permits neither efficiency nor idealism. It thus robs us of a good part of the energy of democratic capitalism and encourages a corrosive cynicism that cannot help but undermine the moral aims of the social-democratic vision.” Is it any wonder the public decreasingly identifies with either party and that a growing majority wishes to be “independent” of both? It will take more than the election of a new president and Congress to fix this. It will require a new way of thinking — which is really an old way of thinking — by “we the people.”

before you vote on it — beware of proponents of an initiative willing to spend millions of their own dollars to convince voters to support something they have a personal interest in. Voters got just what they voted for. Seems in retrospect, government can do something right. Todd Holm, Port Angeles
Racial profiling I see we have a state Commission on Hispanic Affairs. Do we have a “Commission on Caucasian Affairs,” a “Commission on Black Affairs” or a “Commission on Asian Affairs”? It got a huge 4-column article [“Panel to Discuss Profiling,” PDN, June 1] to promote its selective meeting to air its personal bias, promote its skewed opinions and attempts to circumnavigate our law-enforcement
entities so they can’t do their jobs. If the commission doesn’t like our laws, it should work to change them, not try to destroy the law-enforcement
services that keep our country safe. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know that racial profiling came into practice for a very good rea-
son and produced good results, catching and incarcerating criminals to keep us safe. Legal citizens are not going to prison from pro-
filing. The Border Patrol does a difficult, dangerous and important job catching illegal criminals trying to enter or stay in our country. They have broken the laws of our country. They have no rights to our citizen protections until they become legal. The legal ones should man-up, show their green cards and get on about their lives. The “distrust of officials” quoted by [commission chairwoman Lillian] OrtizSelf is an indicator of many illegal lawbreakers in that they are trying to hide and protect. If you have nothing to hide, you are not afraid of law enforcement officials. I show my ID to cash a check, get a job and many other times. There is nothing wrong with asking for ID. Alice L. Coleman, Sequim
1 percenters’ cash fuels recall vote THE FAILED EFFORT to recall Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is widely seen as a crisis for the labor movement and a pivotal moment in the 2012 U.S. presidential-election season. Walker launched a controversial effort Amy to roll back the Goodman power of Wisconsin’s public employee unions, and the unions pushed back, aided by strong, grassroots solidarity from many sectors. This week, the unions lost. Central to Walker’s win was a massive infusion of campaign cash, saturating the Badger State with months of political advertising. His win signals less a loss for the unions than a loss for our democracy in this post-Citizens United era, when elections can be bought with the help of a few billionaires. In February 2011, the newly elected Walker, a former Milwau-
kee county executive, rolled out a plan to strip public employees of their collective-bargaining rights, a platform he had not run on. The backlash was historic. Tens of thousands marched on the Wisconsin Capitol, eventually occupying it. Walker threatened to call out the National Guard. The numbers grew. Despite Walker’s strategy to “divide and conquer” the unions (a phrase he was overheard saying in a recorded conversation with a billionaire donor), the police and firefighters unions, whose bargaining rights he had strategically left intact, came out in support of the occupation. Across the world, the occupation of Tahrir Square in Egypt was in full swing, with signs in English and Arabic expressing solidarity with the workers of Wisconsin. The demands for workers’ rights were powerful and sustained. The momentum surged toward a demand to recall Walker, along with a slew of his Republican allies in the Wisconsin Senate. Then laws tempered the movement’s power. The Wisconsin recall statute

required that an elected official be in office for one year before a recall. Likewise, a loophole in the law allowed the target of the recall to raise unlimited individual donations, starting when the recall petitions are filed. Thus, Walker’s campaign started raising funds in November 2011. His opponent, Tom Barrett, the mayor of Milwaukee, was limited to individual donations of up to $10,000, and had less than one month to campaign after winning the Democratic Party primary May 8. Coupled with the impact of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision, the Wisconsin loophole set the stage for grossly lopsided fundraising between Walker and Barrett, and an election battle that was the most expensive in Wisconsin’s history. According to the most recent state campaign-finance filings, Walker’s campaign raised more than $30.5 million, more than seven times Barrett’s reported $3.9 million. After adding in superPAC spending, estimates put the recallelection spending at more than
$63.5 million. According to Forbes magazine, 14 billionaires made contributions to Walker, only one of whom lives in Wisconsin. Among the 13 out-of-state billionaires was Christy Walton, the widow of John T. Walton, son of Wal-Mart Stores Inc. founder Sam Walton. Nobel Prize-winning economist Joe Stiglitz writes about the Walton family in his new book, The Price of Inequality: How Today’s Divided Society Endangers Our Future. He notes: “The six heirs to the Wal-Mart empire command wealth of $69.7 billion, which is equivalent to the wealth of the entire bottom 30 percent of U.S. society.” That is almost 95 million people. Stiglitz told me: “We’ve moved from a democracy, which is supposed to be based on one person, one vote, to something much more akin to one dollar, one vote. When you have that kind of democracy, it’s not going to address the real needs of the 99 percent.” The voters of Wisconsin did
return control of the state Senate to the Democratic Party. The new majority will have the power to block the type of controversial legislation that made Walker famous. Meanwhile, three states over in Montana, the Democratic state attorney general, Steve Bullock, won his party’s nomination for governor to run for the seat held by term-limited Democrat Brian Schweitzer. Bullock, as attorney general, has taken on Citizens United by defending the state’s 100-year-old corrupt-practices act, which prohibits the type of campaign donations allowed under Citizens United. The case is now before the U.S. Supreme Court. Wisconsin’s recall is over, but the fight for democracy starts with one person, one vote, not 1 percent, one vote.

The state Department of Fish and Wildlife is in the process of acquiring the The 3 Crabs restaurant site to restore the Dungeness Bay shoreline at the end of Sequim-Dungeness Way. parcels, but Guzlas said “that’s down the line” for lack of state acquisition funding. The property for which the state secured the option to buy consists of 49.42 acres of tidelands, including the remnants of the nearly mile-long dock that was the shipping and transportation center for Dungeness dairies into the early 1900s. The more-than-50-yearold restaurant and its parking lot now front the shoreline. Guzlas and Fish and Wildlife are working with Norma Marshall, who has owned the restaurant and tideland and marshland property since 1983, to complete the property sale. “Once we acquire the property, then we will have a number of stakeholder meetings to decide what to do with the land,” Guzlas said, adding that grants would help the state clear and restore the property. He said Fish and Wildlife would work with Marshall to include interpretive materials about the site’s history at a future public parking lot to be located
Guzlas said it was his understanding that Marshall wanted the restaurant to remain in business throughout the summer months. “There is a lot of restoration potential with Meadowbrook Creek,” which feeds into Dungeness River, Guzlas said.

Handy guide to free fishing THE WATERS OF Washington will be wide open Saturday and Sunday as part of the state’s Free Fishing Weekend. This means anglers can hit Lee the ocean for Horton some lingcod, the rivers for salmon, the lakes for trout or Hood Canal for shellfish, even if they don’t have a license. Also not required is a vehicle pass or a Discover Pass to park at any of the water-access sites maintained by the state Department of Fish and Wildlife. But the weekend isn’t a free-forall. Most regulations remain in effect, including season closures, size requirements and daily limits. These rules can be found in the state’s Fishing in Washington rules pamphlet, which can be purchased at most sporting goods stores throughout the North Olympic Peninsula. The pamphlet is also available online at http://wdfw.wa.gov/ fishing/regulations.
Marine areas The Pacific Ocean, Strait of Juan de Fuca and Hood Canal make up the marine areas. These waters are in a bit of a lull right now due to the recent closing of the halibut fishery in all but one area. But they’re still open, and there are still fish to catch. Along the coast in Neah Bay and La Push, anglers can go after trout, tuna, lingcod and rockfish. The daily limit of lingcod in Neah Bay and La Push is two. Neah Bay lingcod has a 24-inch minimum and La Push has a 22-inch minimum. The Sekiu and Pillar Point region is the only place on the Peninsula open for halibut fishing, and you can also harvest trout and lingcod. Along the Strait and by Admiralty Inlet, trout and lingcod are the best bets. Anglers are allowed to take one lingcod that measures between 26 and 36 inches in the Sekiu, Strait and Admiralty areas. Here are a few more daily and size restrictions for the marine areas: ■ Rockfish: No minimum size. Daily limit: 10 (No canary or yelloweye may be retained). ■ Tuna: No daily or size restrictions. ■ Trout: Only two hatchery steelhead may be retained. There are also shellfish harvesting opportunities throughout the Peninsula. Dosewallips State Park, Oak Bay County Park, Sequim Bay State Park and Pillar Point County Park are good spots for clams and oysters. Spot shrimp season has ended, but Admiralty Inlet is still open for pink and coonstripe shrimp. The daily limit for shrimp is 80.
Rivers River fishing is in full swing right now, with steelhead, which opened last week, and spring chinook being the big draws. For steelhead, try the Bogachiel, Quillayute, Sol Duc, Calawah and Hoh are the recommended rivers. The daily limit for steelhead is two, and the minimum size is 14 inches. The Sol Duc is the best river for spring chinook, but the Quillayute is a good secondary option. The daily limit is six springers, including two adults. The size minimum is 12 inches. TURN
Diverse haul for M’s Second day brings bats, gloves, arms MCCLATCHY NEWS SERVICE
After spending one day and only one pick in baseball’s amateur free-agent draft, the Seattle Mariners got down to the business of stocking up on prospective talent on the secon day. The Mariners selected 15 players on the second day to go with first-round pick Mike Zunino, a catcher from the University of Florida, who was taken with the third-overall pick Monday. There was no definable trend or philosophy to Seattle’s selections. It was a little bit of everything – college players from major universities, Division II players, a 17-year-old out of Puerto Rico and a former college football player who was playing organized baseball for the first time in four years. Including Zunino, the Mariners have taken 10 players from college and six from high school. They have picked 12 position players and four pitchers. “There’s certain players you see right in front of your face that you’re not sure whether or not they will get to you in a certain round, so you have to jump up and take them,” Mariners director of amateur scouting Tom McNamara said. “You don’t want to be sitting there after the draft or three or four years later, saying, ‘We really liked those guys.’
Joseph DeCarlo, a slugging high school shortstop, was selected by the Seattle Mariners in the second round of the Major League Baseball draft.
MLB Draft “Well, no, you didn’t. You have to step up and take the players you like.” McNamara liked slugging high school shortstop Joseph DeCarlo enough to take him with the second-round pick. Baseball America rated DeCarlo as the 57th-best high school prospect. “He’s a good-looking hitter, a very physical kid,” McNamara said. “We were very happy to get him where we got him.” The Mariners then went with lanky right-handed starting pitcher Edwin Diaz out of Caguas Military Academy in Caguas, Puerto Rico, with their third-round pick. At 18, Diaz is rail-thin at 6-2
The Mariners took 17-yearold Kristian Brito out of Yabucoa, Puerto Rico, in the 11th round. Brito, 6-5 and 230 pounds, is massive and raw. “It’s been one of the best years they’ve had,” McNamara said of talent in Puerto Rico. “We’ve got to know [Brito], and he’s a good kid that comes from a good family. He’s got power. But he’s a guy that’s going to go out to Peoria and get used to playing professional baseball. “He does have some thunder Power-hitting Kristian in his bat.” Brito was drafted by One thing that McNamara Seattle in the 11th round. found pleasing was selecting a group of six players he thought and 160 pounds, but the Mari- were “physical hitters” who ners saw him throw a fastball could drive the baseball and 95-97 mph. have success immediately. “He’s a projectable, very athTURN TO M’S/B3 letic kid,” McNamara said.
Jockey at top of horse racing I’ll Have Another one win from rare Triple Crown BY BETH HARRIS THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK — Taking in the Manhattan skyline from atop the Empire State Building, Mario Gutierrez was a long way from his small hometown near Veracruz, Mexico. The 25-year-old jockey checked out the view on a sunny Tuesday morning in his first trip to the Big Apple. He’d already visited the ride that got him here, having stopped by Belmont Park earlier to check on I’ll Have Another. Gutierrez and the colt will try to win the Triple Crown for the first time in 34 years on Saturday in the Belmont Stakes. Standing 86 stories above the bustling city, Gutierrez smiled as a knot of photographers closed tightly in on him. “Mario, over here,” they shouted. “Turn this way.” He happily obliged as tourists craned their necks to see the short guy who is poised to become the toast of the racing world.

Mario Gutierrez, jockey for Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner I’ll Have Another, stands on the 103rd floor of New York’s Empire State Building on Tuesday.

“I’m not huge on heights,” said O’Neill, who skipped the photo op and met up with his jockey on a rooftop overlooking Rockefeller Center. “You get a little nervous hearing about it.” Gutierrez has been unflappable since being thrust into the spotlight with I’ll Have Another’s comeback win in the Ken-
tucky Derby on May 5. “He’s handled the pressure well and he knows his horse well,” former jockey Richard Migliore said. “He and the horse both have a lot of confidence in each other and that’s something that’s critical to their success.” TURN
Nadal one step closer to championship Nadal passes toughest test to reach semis BY HOWARD FENDRICH THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
French Open to come back from two-set deficits in Paris, this qualified as a tight spot for Nadal. They went to a tiebreaker, and when Almagro’s backhand return of a 121 mph serve landed out to cede the set, Nadal leaned forward and yelled, “Come on!” Maybe it signaled excitement. Perhaps relief. This much was clear, in case anyone harbored any doubt: Nadal can summon his best play when he needs it.
PARIS — It was about time Rafael Nadal faced some sort of test at the French Open. Not that this one lasted all that long or was all that taxing. Still, after dropping a total of 19 games through his first four matches — the fewest at Roland Garros in 30 years — Nadal finally found himself in an even-as-can-be set at the outset Close to record of his quarterfinal against 12thMoving closer to a record sevseeded Nicolas Almagro. While Novak Djokovic and enth French Open championRoger Federer have been forced ship, Nadal reached the semifi-
nals by beating Almagro 7-6 (4), 6-2, 6-3 to improve to 50-1 at the clay-court Grand Slam tournament. “I played well. I applied my strategy. I tried to do my best,” Almagro said. “But he was at such a high level.” As he always is at Roland Garros. This year, though, Nadal’s level has been even higher than usual. Not only has he won all 15 sets he’s played, but get this: Nadal has won 60 of his 61 service games so far, 54 in a row since getting broken in the second set of his first-round victory over Simone Bolelli of Italy. He’s saved 16 of 17 break points, including going 4 for 4 against Almagro. “If I’d not lost any set and not lost my serve, it would have been a miracle,” the second-
seeded Nadal said. “It’s just impossible to achieve that.” The next player who will try to stop him is No. 6 David Ferrer, who, like Nadal and Almagro, is from Spain. Ferrer reached his third major semifinal, but first at Roland Garros, by eliminating No. 4 Andy Murray 6-4, 6-7 (3), 6-3, 6-2 in a match interrupted by a half-hour rain delay early in the third set. Ferrer recalled watching on TV when countrymen Sergi Bruguera, Juan Carlos Ferrero and Carlos Moya won French Open trophies. “This tournament, I think, is very special for all the Spanish players — and also for me,” Ferrer said.

Rafael Nadal celebrates winning his quarterfinal match against Nicolas Almagro at the French Open in Roland Garros in Paris on Wednesday. Both took big cuts at the ball and set up way behind the baseline, engaging in exchanges that lasted 10 or 15 strokes. With Almagro ahead 5-4,
and Nadal serving at 15-love, a 19-shot point ended with Nadal pushing a forehand long. That meant Almagro was three points from tak-
ing the set. But Nadal took the next three points, including a pair of 118 mph service winners. In the tiebreaker, Nadal pulled ahead 5-1, before dropping
three points in a row. This, then, would be the key moment. Nadal went ahead 6-4 with a cross-court backhand that forced an error, then closed the set with the service winner that he greeted with a shout. “His serve was really good today,” Almagro said. “At the important moments, he served better than [he did] the rest of the match.” In the women’s semifinals Thursday, three-time major champion Maria Sharapova faces No. 4 Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic in a rematch of last year’s Wimbledon final won by Kvitova, while U.S. Open champion Samantha Stosur of Australia meets No. 21 Sara Errani of Italy. Sharapova, who is trying to complete a career Grand Slam, beat No. 23 Kaia Kanepi of Estonia 6-2, 6-3 Wednesday, and Kvitova edged 142nd-ranked qualifier Yaroslava Shvedova 3-6, 6-2, 6-4.

Taco Bell is diversifying with more upscale menu Chain is moving to gourmet fare THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
LOUISVILLE, Ky. â€” Taco Bell, often a late-night indulgence with its low-priced fare, is going more upscale. The chain said Wednesday it plans an early July rollout of a menu addition created by celebrity chef Lorena Garcia for its nearly 5,600 U.S. restaurants. New items feature such ingredi- Garcia ents as black beans, cilantro rice, citrus- and herb-marinated chicken and cilantro dressing. The introduction of items that Taco Bell executive Brian Niccol described as â€œgourmet Mexicanâ€? is a venture onto the turf of casual-dining chains such as Chipotle Mexican Grill and Qdoba Mexican Grill known for higher-quality ingredients. Itâ€™s a departure from such standards as tacos, burritos and chalupas that Taco Bellâ€™s core young-adult customers crave and that will remain mainstays on menu boards. Introduction of the Cantina Burrito Bowl and Cantina Burrito is part of the Irvine, Calif.-based chainâ€™s transformation as its customers look for more than a quick bite on the go,

Taco Bellâ€™s July rollout of â€œgourmet Mexicanâ€? fare is aimed at taking on higher-end chains like Chipotle and Qdoba grills. said Niccol, Taco Bellâ€™s chief marketing and innovation officer. He credits Garcia, who will appear on Bravoâ€™s â€œTop Chef Mastersâ€? show this summer, as the force behind the Cantina Bell menu.
â€˜A lot of new thinkingâ€™ â€œShe brought a lot of new thinking, a lot of fresh approaches to our ingredients that change the flavor profile of the brand,â€? Niccol said. The additions going nationwide July 5 take a bigger bite out of the wallet, but they also are bigger than
the chainâ€™s regular burritos. The Cantina Burrito Bowl and Cantina Burrito, offered with chicken or steak, will sell for nearly $5 apiece, as will a vegetarian option. Side dishes include chips and pico de gallo or corn salsa, chips and guacamole, or black beans and rice. Each will sell for $1.49. Niccol acknowledged the push for quality will draw some skepticism. So the chain said it will refund customers or offer them replacement items if they donâ€™t like the new Cantina Bell dishes. The refund or replacement is a long-standing company policy.
Post offices, Ellis Island site on list of endangered places THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON â€” Hundreds of historic U.S. post offices face uncertain futures as the U.S. Postal Service downsizes, so preservationists Wednesday added these American institutions to a list of the countryâ€™s most endangered historic places. Post offices will join the list of Americaâ€™s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places as a group for the first time. The National Trust for Historic Preservation is citing the bureaucratic process for disposing of thousands of post offices, saying developers and community groups interested in rehabilitating the buildings end up walking away when they donâ€™t get timely answers from the Postal Service. The group also said New Yorkâ€™s Ellis Island hospital complex is threatened, even
â€œWe do want to make sure thereâ€™s a thoughtful process in place for managing the historic resources.â€? STEPHANIE MEEKS National Trust for Historic Preservation president though itâ€™s a popular historic destination, because the facility where thousands of immigrants received medical treatment upon their arrival has been left open to the elements.

sary of the listing of endangered places. Over that time 242 historic sites have been added to the listing. Only 10 sites of those have been lost, while others still are endangered, officials said. The nationâ€™s post offices represent the largest number of sites that could be lost in towns and cities both large and small. Preservationists began getting calls more than a year ago about individual post offices, so they want to work with the Postal Service to help foster a process for adapting and reusing the historic buildings, said Stephanie Meeks, president of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. â€œThis isnâ€™t about taking on the post office,â€? she said. â€œOf course, we donâ€™t quibble with the post office having to do what they have to do to manage their business, but we do want to make sure thereâ€™s a thoughtful process in place for managing the historic resources.â€? One developer in Geneva, Ill., walked away from negotiations with the Postal Service after months
of work, citing a lack of clear answers. The Postal Service on Wednesday said its plans have changed for many post offices since a study last summer. As of May 2012, the agency plans to consolidate about 460 mail processing centers in phases. Of more than 31,500 post offices nationwide, only 55 are officially listed on the National Register of Historic Places, agency spokeswoman Sue Brennan said. If the service seeks to sell any historic property, Brennan said the agency follows State Historic Preservation Office guidelines to identify historic elements that must be saved. Other sites are facing even more imminent threats. President Theodore Rooseveltâ€™s Elkhorn Ranch in North Dakotaâ€™s Badlands, which inspired his views on conservation, is facing development of a road and bridge project that would â€œmarâ€? the landscape and â€œstain Rooseveltâ€™s legacy of conservation,â€? the group said.
