Denizen of Hoh is on TV show

Design plan gets review today


FORKS — Who is Mick Dodge? Dodge — billed as “the barefoot sensei” — is a resident of the Hoh Rain Forest who, according to National Geographic, has lived “off the grid” in the Pacific Northwest for more than 25 years. A new documentary, “The Legend of Mick Dodge,” which follows the life of the bearded West End resident, begins at 10 p.m. tonight and Saturday on National Geographic Channel. Two 30-minute episodes will run on Tuesdays and Saturdays starting at 10 p.m. for three weeks. The first half-hour episode, “Meet the Legend,” will be followed immediately by a second episode, “Trading Up.” Dodge was not available for an interview with the Peninsula Daily News. Dodge was born in Forks and grew up in Japan with his father, Ron Dodge, a U.S. Marine, where he studied under a philosophical “sensei,” or teacher, and spent summers with his grandparents in the Hoh, according to his National Geographic biography. But as an adult, he found the modern world wasn’t a good fit, he said in a question-and-answer session for National Geographic. “The modern cultural story was not “making sense” to me, lots of good talk about what is wrong, lots of talk about what is right, talk, talk, talk,” Dodge said. “So I went for a walk. In following my feet, I found myself stepping out of the insulation of the modern world and landing in the earth.” Gradually, he spent more time in the Hoh Rain Forest where he spent his summers with his grandparents. “The results came quickly. Not only were my feet healing, but my back pain, neck pain and most of all my heart pain disappeared and in no time at all,” he said. “I was back into a dead run, stepping out of the sedentary, stressed, sedated


SEQUIM –– City Manager Steve Burkett signed a contract with Lydig Construction of Bellevue on Monday to begin work on the city’s $11.85 million new city hall and police station after the council voted unanimously in a special session to approve the contract. City officials are scheduled to meet with Lydig to go over specifics of the design plan at 11:30 a.m. today in the Sequim Transit Center, 190 W. Cedar St. “I guess it’s time to get this started,” Burkett said before signing the contracts.

The new building, expected to be around 30,000 square feet, will be sited on most of the 100 block of West Cedar Street, between Sequim Avenue on the east and Second Avenue on the west. It is expected to be completed by April 2015. The final bill may fluctuate, Burkett said, as the city and Lydig close in closer on price estimates for things like moving utilities and arranging parking spaces. “Some of these can be decided now or need to be decided now,” he said. “Others can wait.”

Foundation could change cost Laying the new building’s foundation is the most likely element to swing the price of construction, Burkett said, though he noted the contract was approved with a not-to-exceed price of $11.85 million, which means other design features may need to be changed if costs vary too wildly. Lydig representatives will meet with the council and city staff throughout the early construction phase to review options. Lydig will build a design by Integrus Architeture, after the team’s barn-style design was picked by the council over a gray concrete-brick design from architects Miller Hull Partnership and contractor BNBuilders.

Humane Society finishes exams on dogs Malnourishment, atrophy found BY PAUL GOTTLIEB PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

FORKS — The Arizona Humane Society has completed its examination of Steve Markwell’s former Olympic Animal Sanctuary dogs, which numbered 124 when he arrived at an Arizona animal shelter on Christmas Eve. Many of the approximately 100 dogs examined by the Humane Society were malnour-


ished, some were dangerously aggressive and some had muscle atrophy in their hind legs consistent with having a lack of movement and being underweight, Humane Society spokeswoman Bretta Nelson said Monday.

Finished Friday The examinations were completed Friday. “Malnourishment and muscle atrophy were the main conditions we diagnosed,” Nelson said. “The process was slow-moving because the dogs were not handled very frequently. “We had to move really slow and gain their trust.”

At least 30 of the 124 dogs — some of which did not have names — had been placed with rescue groups as of Monday, said Robert Misseri, president of animal welfare group Guardians of Rescue, which is overseeing the animals’ care. The Humane Society veterinarian who helped oversee the medical examinations was not available for comment Monday. But according to a veterinary technician who examined about half the animals, the dogs’ Body Condition Score ranged from 2 to ARIZONA HUMANE SOCIETY 5, with 1 being emaciated and 9 Arizona Humane Society Veterinarian Dr. Melissa being obese, Nelson said.

Eurythmics reunite for Beatles show THE EURYTHMICS ARE reuniting — to pay tribute to the Beatles. The Recording Academy announced Monday that Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart will perform as a duo for “The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles.” The event will be taped at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Jan. 27, a day after the Grammy Awards. Longtime Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich, who is also producing the Beatles special, thought the Eurythmics would be ideal to honor the iconic group. “When it came around to booking this show, what I felt was important was to try and find those artists who not only would be able to interpret Beatles songs, but would also have an . . . understanding of what they meant,” he said. The Eurythmics, who sold millions of albums and whose hits include “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This),” released their debut in 1981. Ehrlich wouldn’t say which Beatles tune the British duo would perform, but John Mayer and

Keith Urban will pair up to perform “Don’t Let Me Down,” while Alicia Keys and John Legend will perform a duet on “Let It Be.” Maroon 5 also will hit the stage. The special will air on CBS on Feb. 9 — exactly 50 years after the Beatles made their U.S. debut on “The Ed Sullivan Show.”

Ortiz had two passengers in his car, but no one was injured. CHP said it was determined Ortiz was under the influence of alcohol, and he was placed under arrest. A message left for Ortiz’s attorney, Ofir Ventura, was not immediately returned.

SAUL ZAENTZ, 92, a music producer whose second career as a filmmaker brought him best-picture Academy Awards for “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” “Amadeus” and “The English Patient,” has died. Mr. Zaentz died Friday at his San Francisco apartment after suffering from Alzheimer’s Mr. Zaentz disease, in 2006 Paul Zaentz, the producer’s nephew and longtime business partner told the Associated Press. Mr. Zaentz was never a prolific movie producer, but he took on classy productions, specializing in complex literary adaptations that Hollywood studios generally find too intricate to put on film. Since moving into film at age 50 with 1972’s lowbudget country-music drama “Payday,” Mr. Zaentz made just 10 movies, giving him a remarkable three-for-10 batting average on best-picture wins at the Oscars. Among Mr. Zaentz’s other films were the 1978 animated version of “The Lord of the Rings,” which later paved the way for the blockbuster live action trilogy.


He also brought out the 1986 Harrison Ford drama “The Mosquito Coast”; 1998’s acclaimed “The Unbearable Lightness of Being,” which co-starred “English Patient” Oscar winner Juliette Binoche; and 1991’s “At Play in the Fields of the Lord,” a critical and commercial flop despite a cast that included Kathy Bates, Tom Berenger and John Lithgow. With “Lord of the Rings,” whose film rights he acquired in the mid1970s, Mr. Zaentz rejected all suitors interested in doing a live-action version until he saw New Zealand director Peter Jackson’s visually striking “Heavenly Creatures.”

________ DONALD FORST, 81, a veteran newsman who led New York Newsday and the Village Voice as they won Pulitzer Prizes and also worked at more than a dozen other newspapers, died Saturday. He died at St. Peter’s Hospital in Albany, N.Y., of complications of colon can-

cer, said Val Haynes, Mr.Forst’s companion. Mr. Forst’s journalism career Mr. Forst started in in 1997 the mid1950s and included stints as cultural editor of The New York Times, assistant city editor of the New York Post and editor in chief of the Boston Herald. He also worked at the Los Angeles Herald Examiner, the Houston Press and Boston Magazine. Mr. Forst was best known for the decade he spent as editor in chief at New York Newsday, where he nurtured reporters and columnists such as Jim Dwyer and Gail Collins before the paper folded.

Same-sex marriage in Utah gets put on hold Court decision leaves couples in uncertainty BY BRADY MCCOMBS AND MARK SHERMAN THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SALT LAKE CITY — Gay couples in Utah were thrust into legal limbo Monday as the U.S. Supreme Court put a halt to same-sex marriages in the state, turning jubilation to doubt just weeks after a judge’s ruling sent people rushing to get married. The justices did not rule on the merits of the case or on same-sex marriage bans in general, leaving both sides confident they’ll ultimately win. The decision stays in effect while the Denver-based 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals considers the long-term question of whether gay couples have a right to wed in Utah. For those couples who just got married — or were planning their nuptials — the latest twist in the legal battle clouds what was seen as a cause for celebration.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who handles emergency appeals from Utah and the five other states in the 10th Circuit, turned the matter over to the entire court. Many believe the Supreme Court will settle the issue for good. Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes said the court’s decision indicates an interest in Utah’s case, and he hopes the justices issue a final answer. Others doubt the high court will step in any time soon. In June, the justices decided not to weigh in on the constitutionality of defining marriage as Decision welcomed by state being between a man and woman, relying instead on a technical State officials praised Mon- legal argument to resolve the day’s decision to put a hold on issue in California and clear the things, saying it should have come way for same-sex marriage in the earlier. state.

“It feels like we are secondclass citizens during the stay,” said Moudi Sbeity, who is waiting to get married until the legal process plays out. “There’s also the fear of the unknown of what might come next.” Sbeity and partner Derek Kitchen are among three couples who brought the Utah lawsuit that led to the surprise Dec. 20 ruling by U.S. District Judge Robert Shelby, who said the state’s ban on same-sex marriage violated gay and lesbian couples’ constitutional rights.

Briefly: World Iraqi residents asked to expel al-Qaida forces BAGHDAD — Iraq’s prime minister urged Fallujah residents Monday to expel al-Qaida militants to avoid an all-out battle in the besieged city, a sign that the government could be paving the way for an imminent military push in an attempt to rout hard-line Sunni insurgents challenging its territorial control over the western approaches to Baghdad. The militants’ seizure of Fallujah and parts of nearby Ramadi, once bloody battlegrounds for U.S. troops, Al-Maliki has marked the most direct challenge to Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s government since the departure of American forces two years ago. Both the U.S. and its longtime rival Iran view the escalating conflict with alarm, with neither wanting to see al-Qaida take firmer root inside Iraq. Washington has ruled out

sending in American troops but recently delivered dozens of Hellfire missiles.

Bosses seized PARIS — Monday’s meeting in northern French city of Amiens was not going well. As farm tires were rolled in to block the doorway, two Goodyear managers were trapped in a conference room with angry French workers who were demanding more money in exchange for the inevitable loss of their jobs from plans to close their plant. In exchange for freeing the bosses, they’re demanding an $108,000 severance package plus $3,400 for each year worked.

Christmas security CAIRO — Millions of Egyptian Christians thronged churches across this mainly Muslim nation for Christmas Mass, held Monday amid unusually tight security but with congregations filled with hope ahead of a key vote on a new constitution that enshrines equality and criminalizes discrimination. The stepped up security was in response to fears that Islamic militants loyal to ousted President Mohammed Morsi would target churches. The Associated Press

World: China destroys 6 tons of contraband ivory

AN FBI AFFIDAVIT says a Chinese national arrested in the Chinese Consulate arson in San Francisco claims he was motivated by voices he was hearing. The affidavit filed in support of federal charges against 39-year-old Yan Feng of Daly City said he told investigators he targeted the consulate because voices he had been hearing were in Chinese, so he figured the consulate had to be involved. FBI Special Agent in Charge David J. Johnson said Monday that Feng was arrested Friday after he called police in Daly City, a San Francisco suburb.

A TROUBLED PENNSYLVANIA woman who called herself “Jihad Jane” online and plotted to kill a Swedish artist was sentenced Monday to 10 years in prison after telling a judge in Philadelphia she had been consumed by thoughts of a Muslim holy war. Colleen LaRose, 50, faced a potential life term. But Chief U.S. District Judge Petrese B. Tucker gave her credit for her guilty plea and her help in the indictment of two others. Prosecutors asked for decades in prison, fearing she remains highly vulnerable to manipulation.

TWO NEW JERSEY men who operated a bogus Sept. 11 charity by selling T-shirts with the logos of the New York City police and fire departments out of a custom-painted pickup truck at public events pleaded guilty Monday to theft by deception, authorities said. Stafford Township resident Thomas Scalgione and Tinton Falls resident Mark Niemczyk never gave any of the more than $50,000 in proceeds to the victims’ families or to charities as promised, acting state Attorney General John Hoffman said. Both men are facing possible jail terms.

Tusks that were too long were cut up into smaller chunks by workers with circular saws before they were pulverized. Conservation groups say China is the world’s biggest market for ivory.

Artist Kali Bradford left an open message to the vandals who destroyed her snowman sand sculpture outside Lucky Star Consignment Clothing, 154 W. Washington St., in Sequim. Her sculpture “Violet Picking Lavender” for the 2013 Sequim Lavender Weekend was also destroyed by vandals in July, days before the festival weekend began.

Vandals destroy Frosty sand sculpture in Sequim BY JOE SMILLIE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

SEQUIM –– Vandals have destroyed the Frosty the Snowman sand sculpture made by artist Kali Bradford, the second time a piece of her art has been demolished in the past six months. Bradford, a Sequim artist and art therapist, spent much of December with volunteers building the snowman out of sand in a downtown parking lot between A1 Auto Parts and the Lucky Star Consignment Shop at 154 W. Washington St. Her sculpture “Violet Picking Lavender,” created for the 2013

Sequim Lavender Weekend, was destroyed just days before the festival began. Bradford has been a competitive sand sculptor for 35 years, claiming prizes in national and international festivals.

Open letter to vandals She left a letter to the vandals on a white board on the wreckage of her sculpture Monday morning. In it, she questioned their motives and invited them to join one of her art therapy classes. “You are so tough,” she wrote. “It took you three minutes I’m guessing to destroy a 30-hour project which required a personal

investment by a few of us. The time and money lost is nothing compared to your energy directed towards destruction rather than being the artist of your life.” Bradford could not be reached for comment. Sequim Police Chief Bill Dickinson said his officers had not fielded any report of the vandalism. In September, Bradford rebuilt her destroyed lavender sculpture outside Adagio Bean & Leaf, 981 E. Washington St. Bradford has a Tumblr website set up to display her sand art — — and is available for workshops or special projects by phoning 360-775-9463.

Jefferson to get countywide fire marshal position to be left vacant by the retirement of Deputy Chief Bob Low. Three people applied for that position but one withdrew, according to EFJR spokesman Bill Beezley, and the timing of the hire is not certain. One of the applicants is internal while another is out of the area, Beezley said.


PORT TOWNSEND — A countywide fire marshal will be designated in the next few months in a move that will increase efficiency and public safety, a local fire chief said. “This has been a long process to get this approved and is how most counties do business,” said Gordon Pomeroy, chief of East Jefferson Fire-Rescue, or EJFR, after the Jefferson County Commissioners approved a measure to designate the position Monday.

Default marshal “We will designate one person as county fire marshal and name all the local chiefs as deputy fire marshal, which will give them a little more authority to make sure codes are enforced when they do their inspections.” Pomeroy currently acts as the default fire marshal and delegates investigations on a case-by-case basis.

One such effort was to inspect the kitchen duct systems in Port Townsend in 2013, eventually determining that all of them were compliant. “We approved all the restaurants in Port Townsend, and they upgraded voluntarily; there was no hassle,” Pomeroy said. Beezley said the new inspections will occur anywhere that people gather in large numbers “and work our way down,” he said. “There can always be a hazard in places where a lot of people get together,” Beezley said. “Once we’re done, we’ll go back to the beginning. It’s a cycle that never ends.”

Under the new structure, the fire marshal will work closely with the Department of Community Development and its director, Carl Smith, who said that access to fire personnel will help him to make more accurate code violation determinations. “Carl knows a lot about CHARLIE BERMANT/PENINSULA DAILY NEWS planning and code enforceTosha Madill, front, and Raymond Turner prepare breakfast under the ment, but he doesn’t have grill’s large ventilation system Monday at the Point Hudson Cafe in Port the knowledge about fire Townsend.

Briefly . . . Highway 101 traffic shifts to new lanes PORT ANGELES — The state Department of Transportation on Monday shifted traffic onto the new lanes of U.S. Highway 101 between Port Angeles and Sequim, agency spokesman Doug Adamson said. The department for weeks had planned to make the switch Monday morning, with the caveat that the weather had to cooperate for striping work. “Fortunately, the weather cooperated,” Adamson said. The shift onto a 1.2-mile section of new highway between Barr Road and Peninsula Septic Tanks was needed to allow a state-hired contractor to build the second of two new bridges over McDonald Creek, Adamson has said. Several more traffic shifts will occur this spring and summer as the state widens the highway to four

lanes on the 3.5-mile segment between KitchenDick and Shore roads. Once completed late this year, motorists will have two lanes of travel in both directions all the way between Port Angeles and Sequim.

Clallam PUD PORT ANGELES — Clallam County Public Utility District commissioners Monday said they would consider bidding a well replacement project east of Port Angeles later this month.

The existing Bluffs Well in The Bluffs neighborhood off Gasman Road was built too close to the Strait of Juan de Fuca and became susceptible to saltwater intrusions in the early 1990s, officials said.

Eyman initiative OLYMPIA — Initiative promoter Tim Eyman is pushing a new measure that would cut billions of dollars from the state budget unless the Legislature moves forward with a constitutional amendment that would make it harder for lawmakers to raise taxes. Eyman proposed the new initiative Monday. The Seattle Times reported that the proposal would reduce the state sales tax by a penny, cutting state sales tax from 6.5 percent to 5.5 — about $1 billion a year in lost revenue. Under the measure, the tax cut could be avoided if the Legislature advances a constitutional amendment to the ballot that requiring a two-thirds vote to approve new taxes.

PA chamber hands out its yearly honors BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — Peninsula College President Luke Robins and Todd Gubler, manager of Lake Crescent Lodge, received awards for their contributions to the community Monday at the annual Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce awards luncheon. The two business leaders were honored in front of more than 100 chamber members at the Red Lion Hotel. Robins was presented with the 2013 President’s Award by outgoing Chamber President Brian Kuh, for his contributions to the community in 2013.

Steps up as leader Despite being a newcomer to Port Angeles, Robins immediately stepped in to become a community and business leader and has already left lasting contributions to the city, Kuh said. Robins said he and his wife, Mary Jane Robins, are impressed with the community and region, and they are pleased to be involved in several organizations that support the city. “We want the community’s kids to grow up, get an education — and that’s where we come in — and stay on the Peninsula,” Robins said. The Peninsula College Board of Trustees hired Robins to replace departing President Tom Keegan, and he began his first day in July 2012. Before arriving in Port

Angeles, he was chancellor of Louisiana Delta Community College in Monroe, La. Gubler was pre- Ortloff sented with the Member Extraordinaire award by Russ Ve e n e m a , executive director of the chamStevenson ber. “Working closely with 450 members, there is a l w a y s someone who sticks out,” Veenema said. G u b l e r Straling worked tirelessly to keep Lake Crescent Lodge open during the fall and early winter off-season, he said. The Lodge, a popular getaway in the Olympic National Park, which traditionally closes at the end of October, remained open through the end of December for a New Year celebration. “It was extremely successful,” Gubler announced.

Winter Lodge Successful enough that the Lodge will be open through the end of December again next year, he said. “They say, ‘If you build it they will come.’ We built this season, and people came,” he said.


Outgoing Port Angeles Regional Chamber President Brian Kuh presents the President’s Award to Luke Robins, president of Peninsula College. Gubler said the Lodge employed 40 people over the extended season. The chamber also bid farewell to a departing board and executive committee and welcomed their replacements. Todd Ortloff, station manager for KONP radio, was introduced as the incoming chamber president, replacing outgoing president Brian Kuh, a small business lender for Craft3.

Alternate member Kuh was president for two years and said he would remain as an alternate member for some meetings. Sharon Stevenson of Olympic Medical Center was introduced as vice president and Shenna Straling of Union Bank as treasurer. Four new board members were welcomed: Brian Albright of Albright Net-

Endangered species The fish-eating whales were listed as endangered in 2005, and NOAA scientists are working to understand why the small population isn’t rebounding. They face potential threats from lack of prey, toxins and the effects of vessels and noise. The animals number about 81. The J pod does not appear to travel very far south along the Washington coast nor do they go to Oregon or California like K and L pods, Hanson said. Last March, with the help of the satellite tags, Hanson and others were able to intercept the whales off the coast of Southern Oregon on the NOAA research ship Bell M. Shimada. They were able to follow the whales as they foraged up the Oregon and Washington coasts.

Hops shortage KENNEWICK — Some small craft brewers are having trouble securing enough hops for their flavorful beers, even though Washington farmers have boosted production of the crop in recent years. Growing demand from craft brewers is prompting more farmers to plant the aroma variety of hops that add herbal, fruity and floral flavors to microbrews. The Tri-City Herald reported Monday that Washington farmers harvested more than 54.9 million pounds of hops last year, up 13 percent from 2012. But the number of craft breweries is also growing. As of 2013, there were almost 2,500 craft breweries nationwide, according to the Boulder, Colo.-based Brewers Association. That was nearly 500 more than in 2011. The Associated Press

DISCOVERY BAY — A 51-year-old Quilcene man was charged with seconddegree negligent driving after he fell asleep at the wheel and drove a 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass into a ditch, power pole and private fence on U.S. Highway 101 in Jefferson County on Monday, the State Patrol said. Roger Dean Mallicott was driving southbound when the car crossed the northbound lane near Crocker Lake Road near

Discovery Bay and struck a culvert, went airborne and collided with a telephone box and power pole before coming to a rest in a private fence, Troopers said. Mallicott was taken to Jefferson Healthcare with unknown injuries. His condition was not immediately available. Mallicott was wearing a seat belt, and drugs or alcohol were not factors in the wreck. The collision occurred near Milepost 287 at 12:23 p.m.


Mick Dodge pauses for a moment in the Hoh Rain Forest.

Hoh: Skepticism greets claims He isn’t often seen in Forks, the largest town in the area, and known only to a few long-time residents. “Ninty-nine percent of the people in Forks don’t know about him,” said Laurie Johnson, who grew up in Forks and currently works at the Forks Visitor Center.

CONTINUED FROM A1 Michael Hagen, director of land management at Hoh River Trust said he first met Dodge about two years ago on Trust property in the area. Hagen said he’s skeptical about Dodge sleeping in stumps on a regular basis. “I believe he has a house in the Branderberry Lots,” he said. Some of the filming has taken place on Trust property and ended in October, Hagen said. “They’re pretty light and quick. They don’t have the big trucks like the commercials that film here,” Hagen said. Dodge does leave the forest to make something of a living. ARIZONA HUMANE SOCIETY

He arrived three days later at the Rescued Unwanted Furry Friends Foundation Shelter, where the dogs have been fed, kenneled and examined — and where he turned over ownership of the animals to Guardians of Rescue. Markwell had been under constant fire from animal-welfare advocates from across the country who have alleged he cared for the animals under inhumane conditions. He has denied mistreating the dogs, most of which are considered unadoptable

a $200,000 contract with Optimum Building Consultants of Bellevue to oversee the construction project. In addition to the city government offices, the new building also will house the police department, now renting space in the Sequim Village Shopping Center at 609 W. Washington St. Destruction of the existing city hall, built for $110,000 in 1973, is expected to begin in March, Burkett said. The total bill for the new building, including land acquisition and demolition, will be $15 million. Earlier this year, the city sold $10.439 million in bonds to fund the project, which will be repaid annually at $660,000 for the next 30 years. The city hopes to repay some of that with the $200,000 made available annually by eliminating rent on offices and the police station. It also plans to use a portion of the criminal justice sales tax implemented last year.

Responsible Stewardship Continues Beyond Our Lifetimes

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Tuesday, January 7, 2014 PAGE


Looking anew at ‘zero tolerance’ SCHOOLS ACROSS THE country are rethinking “zero tolerance” discipline policies under which children have been suspended, even arrested, for minor offenses like cursing, getting into shoving matches and other garden-variety misbehavior that in years past would have been resolved with detention or meetings with a child’s parents. These reappraisals are long overdue. Studies have shown that suspensions and expulsions do nothing to improve the school climate, while increasing the risk that children will experience longterm social and academic problems. Federal data also indicates that minority students are

disproportionately singled out for harsh disciplinary measures. These policies date back to 1994, when Congress required states receiving federal education money to expel students for bringing guns onto school property. States and local governments broadened and distorted this mandate to expel children for minor infractions. At the same time, schools began stationing police officers in hallways, which also increased arrests for nonviolent behavior. The scope of the problem became clear three years ago when the Council of State Governments Justice Center, a nonprofit policy group, issued a study of school discipline polices

GUEST EDITORIAL in Texas. It showed that nearly 6 in 10 public school students were suspended or expelled at least once between seventh and 12th grade. But only a tiny fraction of the disciplinary actions taken against students were for serious criminal conduct requiring suspension or expulsion under state law. Children who are removed from school are at heightened risk for low achievement, being held back, dropping out or becoming permanently entangled in the juvenile justice system. The Texas Legislature has taken steps aimed at keeping minor misconduct cases from

reaching the courts. One law recommends that school districts consider less harsh sanctions, like a warning letter or counseling. Another measure prohibits police from ticketing and fining children under the age of 12 on school grounds or on a school bus. A similar evolution is taking place in California. The Los Angeles school district became the first in the nation to ban suspensions for “willful defiance,” a catchall category that accounted for more than 40 percent of the state’s suspensions in the 2011-12 school year. A new state law allows suspension for serious offenses, like those involving violence or weap-


ons, but requires schools to try alternative strategies, including parent-teacher conferences, before suspending students for nonviolent infractions. Change is also afoot in Broward County, Fla., one of the nation’s largest school districts. The district has entered into an agreement with civil rights groups and law enforcement to keep troubled children in school, where they can receive counseling and other forms of help. Broward’s superintendent said it was wrong to keep saddling students with criminal records that can hurt their chances of getting a job or college financial aid, or of entering the military. School systems across the country should pay attention. The New York Times

Getting older, growing poorer THE BASIC OUTLINES of poverty in America are sadly familiar. At last count, 46.5 million people were poor — 15 percent of the population. Women and children, especially in single-mother families, were, as always, hit hardest. Another group, people 65 and older, now seems vulnerable as well. In analyzing the recent Census Bureau report on poverty, researchers at the National Women’s Law Center found that from 2011 to 2012, the rate of extreme poverty rose by a statistically significant amount among

those 65 and older, meaning that a growing number of them were living at or below 50 percent of the poverty line. In 2012, this was $11,011 a year for an older person living alone. An additional 135,000 older women became extremely poor in 2012, raising the extreme-poverty rate in that group to 3.1 percent. And 100,000 older men were extremely poor in 2012, raising the extreme-poverty rate in that group to 2.3 percent. In all, nearly 1.2 million people age 65 and up were classified

GUEST EDITORIAL as extremely poor in 2012. The increase in extreme poverty requires utmost attention. For the most part, Social Security has protected older Americans from poverty. In cases where older people are poor, the afflicted often have been very old women, who have long outlived their spouses and any nest egg. In the law center’s research, however, the increase in extreme poverty was concentrated in the 65-to-75 age group. Some of them could be among

the long-term unemployed, whose jobless benefits have been cut or run out. Or they might be people who would generally qualify for public assistance in addition to Social Security but are having trouble getting those benefits in the face of administrative cutbacks at the state and federal levels. The numbers alone don’t say why extreme poverty has risen or whether the rise will be lasting or fleeting. But other data echo the law center’s findings. The Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, which tracks a larger sample than in its

B Playoffs

Hawks should forget blowout AS SOON AS Shayne Graham’s field-goal kick knifed through the uprights Saturday night, sending the New Orleans Saints to Seattle for a playoff game against the Seahawks, Pete Carroll and his staff began a comprehensive review of the last time the Saints came marching into CenturyLink Field. Consulting an information John bank organized with the meticu- McGrath lous precision of a rocket launch, Carroll’s thumbnail analysis of the Seahawks’ 34-7 victory on Dec. 2 probably looked like this: What went right? Everything. What went wrong? Nothing. It’s not likely the Seahawks can play any better than they did five weeks ago, nor is it likely the Saints can play any worse. In other words, come Saturday afternoon, expect something more in line with an actual football game than a reprise of a rope-a-dope pummeling. You’d think the Seahawks would have no qualms about drawing the Saints, who were as overmatched on the stat sheet as they were on the scoreboard.

PC eyeing home wins Peninsula teams host Edmonds PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — The Peninsula Pirates host Edmonds for their North Division women’s and men’s basketball home openers Wednesday. For the Peninsula women, it will be the first home game of the 2013-14 season — and the road has not been kind. The Pirates are 3-8 and looking to turn things around with the help of the home fans. Tipoff for the women against Edmonds (1-10) is 5 p.m.

Freeman’s first The Peninsula men’s game marks the first home conference game for first-year head coach Mitch Freeman. The Pirates men started the season 6-1 and earned a No. 8 spot in the Alaska Airlines NWAACC Coaches Poll, but have since dropped three straight games, all on the road. The men, too, will return to their home crowd looking to get back in the win column against a Triton team that is 8-6. Tipoff follows the women’s game at approximately 7 p.m. TURN




Peninsula’s Branden Charbonier, right, looks to pass around the defense of Clark’s Josh Hall in November. The Pirates handed the No. 2 Penguins their only loss of the season, 77-76. Peninsula returns home Wednesday on a three-game losing streak.

Seattle has survived expectations With 13-3 record, Hawks more than lived up to hype

Dominated in December Name a category, and the Hawks owned a virtual times-two or timesthree advantage. First downs? Seattle 23, New Orleans 12. Rushing yards? Seattle 127, New Orleans 44. Total net yards? Seattle 429, New Orleans 188. If the Seahawks produce even a semblance of those numbers Saturday, they’ll be on a collision course with either the Panthers or the 49ers in the NFC championship game. But here’s the rub: It’s a challenge to beat an opponent twice in five weeks, much less an opponent whose coach is as savvy as Sean Payton. While Carroll’s task will be to convince his team that a 27-point victory in December translates into ancient history in January, Payton will use the humiliation as motivation. An athlete of NFL caliber shouldn’t need motivation for a playoff game, to be sure, but pride is a substantial intangible.

Saints will remember From the moment Hawks’ defensive tackle Brendan Mebane stopped Pierre Thomas for a 4-yard loss on New Orleans’ first play, the visitors had their noses rubbed in the stuff of a barnyard mess. The Seahawks would be wise to forget how thoroughly they dominated that night. The Saints can’t. What Payton’s team has put behind is some history of futility. Before the Saints’ comeback victory against the Eagles on Saturday night, the franchise was 0-5 in road playoff games. While weather conditions in not-always-sunny Philadelphia weren’t particularly brutal, the environment was. Quarterback Drew Brees threw two interceptions, and New Orleans was minus-two in the turnover ratio — a crucial, all-important category during the playoffs, unless it isn’t — but the Saints cobbled together a late scoring drive that concluded with Graham’s last-second field goal. Oddsmakers have installed the Seahawks as 8½-point favorites, an increase of the 4½-point spread set when 10-1 Seattle and 9-2 New Orleans clashed in that Monday Night Football battle of the heavyweights.

TUCSON, ARIZ. — To celebrate wildly about a close loss to a quality basketball team would be silly. To dismiss entirely the notion that it could bode well for the future, however, would be ignorant. So maybe it’s not lost on the Washington Huskies that their 71-62 defeat at Arizona — unbeaten, No. 1-ranked, untouchable-at-home Arizona — meant something more than another number in the loss column. The Huskies didn’t win at McKale Center on Saturday afternoon, though they played as if they believed they could. They may also have learned something that, coupled with Thursday’s impressive victory at Arizona State, will help as they maneuver into the teeth of what figures to be a difficult Pac-12 schedule. “If we understand that now we’re a better defensive team than we were before,” Washing-

College Basketball ton coach Lorenzo Romar said, “and we take that with us and understand if we play the right way, that we have a chance to be competitive with anyone in our league. “If we can remember that, and remember why, then we can draw from this weekend and it could help us.”

Battled top ‘Cats It was surprising enough that the Huskies blitzed Arizona State on Thursday, defending and executing in transition better than they have in any game this season. Saturday’s performance was even more unexpected. Arizona entered the game as one of the nation’s best defensive and rebounding teams, and defeated its first 14 opponents by an average of 20.7 points. Yet there were the Huskies, leading 35-33 at halftime after

shooting 55.6 percent from the field and outrebounding the Wildcats, 17-12. And their defense was even better than two days before. Arizona’s starting lineup includes three players who are 6-foot-8 or taller. Washington starts four guards. Yet the Huskies limited Arizona to 39.3 percent shooting in the first half and 42.1 percent overall, with senior forward Perris Blackwell matching well against 7-foot center Kaleb Tarczewski, and Washington’s guards collapsing down to front the Wildcats’ other post players. The Huskies’ lead expanded to 42-36 after Nigel WilliamsGoss converted a 3-point play with 16:42 left in the game, the 14,545 in attendance quieted each time Washington answered an Arizona bucket with a quality offensive play of its own. But Arizona seized control by exploiting Washington’s most obvious shortcomings: its lack of size and depth. TURN



Football game. Lightning struck, Richard Sherman danced, a Sea Gal became famous for 15 minutes. It was just Week 2. The Seahawks were beginning their push toward matching a franchise-best 13-3 record during a season with unmatched expectations. Each loss was greeted as a revelation. They can lose? Really? It’s the weight the Seahawks bore since the middle of the last summer. That’s when Russell Wilson smiled for magazine cover shoots to preview the coming NFL season. Talk-radio hosts blathered about the San Francisco game. All because the Seahawks were expected to push past the longtime middling accomplishments of Pacific Northwest sports. They were eight years removed from the franchise’s first Super Bowl appearance. There was a flat and firm expectation another would come in New Jersey’s frigid air Feb. 2, 2014. TURN

Zach Johnson opens year with win in Hawaii BY DOUG FERGUSON THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

KAPALUA, Hawaii — Zach Johnson started the new year the same way he ended the last one. Johnson pulled away with three straight birdies on the back nine at Kapalua and closed with a 7-under 66 for a one-shot victory over Jordan Spieth in the Tournament of Champions on Monday. Johnson didn’t need any heroics, like holing out from a drop zone on the last hole when he beat Tiger Woods in the World Challenge last month in California. This was mainly about chipping and putting, and Johnson is among the best. He hit a wedge to 8 feet for birdie on the 14th to take the outright lead for the first time. Facing a dangerous shot

up a steep slope to a green with a false front, Johnson caught it perfectly on the 15th for an easy birdie. And he hit wedge to 5 feet for a third straight birdie that gave him control. Spieth, who had a oneshot lead going to the back nine, birdied his last two holes for a 69. “I just picked it apart,” said Johnson, who finished at 19-under 273. “I didn’t deviate from anything I typically do on a golf course.” Webb Simpson, tied with Spieth and defending champion Dustin Johnson to start the final round, never caught up and closed with a 70. He tied for third with Kevin Streelman, who had a 67. Jason Dufner was four strokes back in fifth after a 69.

Cougars had minutes to spare. Forward Junior Longrus benefitted the most, and played well for the Cougars. Against Arizona he was the team’s leading scorer, albeit with just six points. Against the Sun Devils the sophomore named Junior had seven rebounds, five offensively, and had four steals for the Cougars. ■ Biggest Disappointment: Outside shooting. The Cougars are built to be dangerous from the perimeter. They start a power forward, D.J. Shelton, who is fourth on the team with 42 3-point attempts this season. Lacy, Johnson, Kernich-Drew and others are all threats to spot up and shoot from the perimeter. So far this season, however, only Lacy and Johnson are threats to make those shots. The Cougars have hit 99

of 319 from deep this season for a 31 percent clip, and that’s with Lacy going 37 of 91. Without him, the Cougars went 2 of 12 against Arizona and 5 of 17 against the Sun Devils (5 of 19 with Lacy’s two misses). With no threat to score from the outside, teams have been able to pack it in against the Cougars. ■ Where do the Cougars Go From Here: It doesn’t get much easier for the Cougars, who won’t even have the friendly confines of Friel Court to look forward to upon returning home. Washington State’s next game is in Spokane against No. 15 Colorado, which climbed five spots after knocking off then-undefeated Oregon last week. The team’s home opener comes on Sunday against Utah, the 12-2 team that took Oregon to overtime.

The Pirate men this season are led by Xavier Bazile, who is averaging 21.8 points per game, the eighth highest in the NWAACC, since becoming eligible in December. The Tacoma sophomore also is leading the team in rebounds with 6.8. The only other Pirate scoring in double figures with 13.9 per game is sophomore T.J. McKinney of

The students were required to have trained a minimum of six months since passing their previous test and completed at least 20 hours of community service. The students needed to be ready to be tested on any part of the national standardized curriculum from white belt through black belt. On Dec. 14, Master David Mason conducted an examination in Sequim of five students eligible to take their black belt test. The fifth person travelled from Vancouver, Wash. to take part in the test. The test consisted of: ■ Written test with a passing score of 70 percent. ■ Perform six patterns out of a possible nine. A pattern is a set series of movements ranging from 19 to 38 movements. ■ Advanced kicking techniques. ■ Defend and counter attack against an attacking partner. ■ Fight another candidate demonstrating advanced techniques. ■ Perform a pre-arranged demonstration of throws, take downs, joint lock and chokes. ■ Demonstrate throws, take downs, joint lock, chokes and use of pressure points against an

Allen, a area veterinarian, started Taekwon-do as a form of exercise with structure. She embraced the martial art for selfdefense and personal development. Allen achieved the highest score in the written test at 94 percent. Morton juggled Taekwon-do with sports and school work. Through exercising one of the tenets of Taekwon-do, perseverance, Morton successfully overcame these challenges and performed with confidence at the test.

During her test, Gauthun demonstrated superior technique when she threw Allen, turning her upside down and avoiding being choked from behind. Phipps has been practicing Taekwon-do for nearly six years, and at age 12 was the youngest candidate at the test. By the time the test was through, Phipps’ experience showed, and he was named the best at test.

Hawks: Wilson proved to be cream of crop CONTINUED FROM B1 “It was a huge issue,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. “It is for anybody who has expectations of winding up in the Super Bowl before you’ve ever even played a game. “That’s as big of expectations as you can have.”

Wilson answers Wilson began the year lumped in with a trio of other young quarterbacks: Indianapolis’ Andrew Luck, Washington’s Robert Griffin III and San Francisco’s Colin Kaepernick. After successful 2012 seasons for each the debate raged about who was the best. Most stuck with Luck, the former No. 1 overall pick. Even Wilson’s teammate, Doug Baldwin, touted Luck’s potential. “I’m on the record as saying Andrew Luck can be the greatest quarterback who ever played the game of football,” Baldwin said. Wilson surpassed them all this season. He threw the most touchdowns, despite the Seahawks being a run-first offense. Wilson had the best touchdown-to-interception ratio and the highest quarterback rating. At one point, Wilson was considered an MVP candidate. He slipped later in the season. In a Week 16 loss to Arizona, Wilson had his worst game of the year. The next day, he showed up at the training facility almost an hour earlier than usual to begin diagnosing and fixing the issues he had against the Cardinals.

That extra hour was significant because Wilson typically arrives at 5:30 a.m. “Usually after games, Thomas saves the day win or lose, I don’t really In the season opener at Carolina, Earl Thomas sleep that great just because strips DeAngelo Williams at the 10-yard line and you’re thinking about the Tony McDaniel recovered at the 8, giving Seattle game or you’re restless or possession and helping the Seahawks go on to an your body is a little sore or opening 12-7 win. whatever,” Wilson said.

yards allowed per game (273.6), passing yards allowed per game (172), interceptions (28) and turnover margin (plus-20). To close the season, the Seahawks squashed the Rams’ running attack. After allowing St. Louis to run for 200 yards in their first matchup of the season, Seattle tied a franchise-low by giving up just 13 rushing yards against the Rams in the rematch. “Even though Danny [Dan Quinn] came in new for this season, he’d been with us before and really allowed us a chance to carry over from where we were,” Carroll said. “It was seamless in the transition. All of that, and then just the maturity of the players. “Earl [Thomas] is a better football player than he was a couple of years ago, and Sherm [Richard Sherman] is a better player across the board. “The guys that have been with us have improved steadily throughout, and the fact that they know each other and know what they can count on is really crucial in adjusting, analyzing, diagnosing, all that stuff that they’re called on to do.”

The next step Thomas didn’t alter his demeanor after the Seahawks beat the Rams to clinch the NFC’s top seed and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. That’s just as Carroll wants it. Carroll pushes to create a form of energized monotony. Every week is a championship week, he says. We’re

going to get revved up. We’re excited for the opportunity. If he were a doll with a pull-string attached to his back, those would be the repeated phrases. They sunk into Thomas’ head. As most players were celebrating, Thomas stood in his uniform with only his cleats and helmet off well after the game. “I’ve psyched myself out to think every week is a championship week,” Thomas said. “So, this feels normal.” No more convincing is necessary. Every future game is a mere 60 minutes away from ending a season that has flourished from its promising beginning. The Seahawks are ready to finish the season the way they began it. Seattle streets will swell Saturday with tailgating revelers whose expectations have only increased for the divisional-round playoff game against New Orleans. Slick-haired men in Las Vegas have made Seattle the odds-on favorite to win the Super Bowl. They’ve handled it all, so far. “We’ve dealt with it throughout the season and put it in the right place and the guys understood what it meant and what it didn’t mean and performed under that kind of scrutiny,” Carroll said. “To get the division taken care of and have the best record and all that under those expectations, we dealt with it. So that’s a really good thing. “That’s how you make expectations like that normal and we did that.”

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Panthers coach Ron Rivera is expecting a few more big plays from San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick this time around. Rivera said Monday that Kaepernick “didn’t play that well” in the first meeting against Carolina on Nov. 10. The Panthers limited the third-year quarterback to 91 yards passing, 16 yards rushing and no touchdowns in a 10-9 win over the 49ers at Candlestick Park. On Sunday, the two teams meet again in the NFC divisional playoffs in Charlotte, N.C., and Rivera said he expects Kaepernick will be on his game — and make it that much tougher on his defense. “I don’t expect that again,” Rivera said. “I expect the young man to come out and play well. He’s a good football player and he showed it [Sunday] night” against Green Bay. The 49ers have won six straight games, including a 23-20 playoff win over the Green Bay Packers this past Sunday at Lambeau Field. Kaepernick threw for 223 yards and a touchdown and ran for 98 yards against

49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick (7) runs against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. the Packers. Over the past six games, Kaepernick has elevated his play, averaging 231 yards passing per game with 11 touchdowns and three interceptions. Rivera says the 49ers are a much better team than they played back in November. “All you have to do is watch the way he has played down the stretch,” Rivera said. “We caught them at a good time and it turned out in our benefit.” Perhaps. Kaepernick was without wide receiver Michael Crabtree in the last meeting and tight end Vernon Davis left early in the game with a concussion. Crabtree had eight catches for 125 yards in the win over Green Bay. Mario Manningham led the 49ers with 30 yards receiving in the last game

against Carolina and San Francisco’s longest pass play went for 14 yards. The 49ers managed just 10 first downs against Carolina and failed to get into the end zone. “We owe them,” Kaepernick said Sunday of the Panthers. San Francisco’s win over Green Bay served as a stark reminder of what not to do while defending Kaepernick. Defensive coordinator Sean McDermott pointed to a crucial moment on the final drive when the outside edge rusher lost containment and Kaepernick scooted free for an 11-yard gain on third-and-8. Five plays later Phil Dawson kicked the winning field goal as time expired. McDermott said his defense did a nice job of staying in their rushing lanes and keeping Kaeper-

nick in the pocket last time around, sacking him six times. He said that will be key on Sunday, too. “I thought our guys played aggressive up front,” McDermott said. “We played discipline. The coverage was good enough at times to get him to hold the ball.” Defensive tackle Dwan Edwards also stressed the importance of not trying to do too much outside of the scheme. “Our defensive ends can’t get too far past the quarterback or he takes off and it gives him huge lanes,” Edwards said. “It’s important that everyone stays in their lanes and when someone does get out of their lane we have to cover that up quickly.” McDermott said the last game against the 49ers felt like an old school NFC playoff slugfest. But like Rivera, he’s not so sure it will be such a lowscoring affair this time around. “You just never know in the playoffs,” McDermott said. “You saw the scores this past weekend. You had some halves where teams were completely shut down, and then they came out and exploded. “I’m sure they’re a better football team and I’d like to believe we’re a better football team as well.”

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Forget the Ravens. Remember the Chargers. Kickoff in the Broncos’ AFC Divisional round game this weekend comes exactly a year after Jacoby Jones’ 70-yard last-gasp touchdown catch sparked Baltimore’s upset of Denver in double-overtime. But the Broncos don’t have to go all the way back to their playoff pratfall against Baltimore for inspiration when they host San

Diego on Sunday. The Broncos, again the AFC’s top seed after another 13-3 regular season, can draw plenty of motivation from their latest slip-up just a month ago, when the Chargers (10-7) handed them their only home loss of the season, 27-20.

New motivation “We beat the Ravens in the opener, so we checked that one off our list already,” defensive end Malik Jackson said Monday. “Now, we need to check the Chargers off our list.”

The Broncos were held to their lowest output of their record-breaking season by the Chargers on Dec. 12, when Peyton Manning spent most of his night stewing on the sideline. Manning had complained about the short week of preparation leading up to that game and some of his teammates acknowledged afterward that they had their minds more on the long weekend of R&R that followed that final Thursday night game of the year than on fending off a good team scrapping for a playoff berth.

DEAR ABBY: My husband and I are happily married and will celebrate 15 years of marriage next year. We have a 5-year-old daughter. Our dilemma is whether or not we should have another child. I’m 38 and my husband is 40. We have become comfortable with the fact that our daughter is getting more independent. We plan on doing a lot of traveling, and I will change jobs after I complete school. We are not sure about starting over with a baby. We are doing OK financially, and if we have a second child, it would have to be within the next year, while I finish my classes and can be home to be with the baby. Our daughter is well-adjusted, and we plan on putting her in activities such as dance and gymnastics. We would like your opinion and also to hear from parents who had only one child, as well as people who were raised without a sibling. Maybe Only One in Georgia

TV makers placing bets on ‘smart’ sets to boost sales BY BRIAN X. CHEN AND NICK WINGFIELD THE NEW YORK TIMES

SAN FRANCISCO — Big, bright, sharp and sophisticated, television sets have never looked better. But that’s a problem. The TV industry has innovated itself into a corner. Crisp, high-definition TVs as big as 50 diagonal inches can be had for a few hundred dollars. Why bother upgrading or paying more for a fancy new one? Many people don’t. And if you spend much of your time watching streaming video on a tablet or phone, paying for a better TV seems even more pointless. So for several years now, TV sales have been lackluster. Electronics manufacturers, though, are not losing hope. And at the 47th International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas THE ASSOCIATED PRESS this week, they will show how they intend to attract more customers.

Factory orders up WASHINGTON — U.S. factories orders climbed in November, led by a surge in aircraft demand. And businesses stepped up spending on machinery, computers and other long-lasting goods, a sign of investment that could fuel economic growth. Factory orders rose 1.8 percent in November, the Commerce Department said Monday. That follows a 0.5 percent decrease in October. Orders received by manufacturers totaled a seasonally adjusted $497.8 billion in November, the highest level on records dating to 1992. Orders have increased 2.5 percent over the past 12 months. The improvements could signal accelerating growth in 2014.


Americans are buying more cars and homes, increasing demand for steel, furniture and other goods. That has led factories to hire more workers, generating additional economic momentum. A 21.8 percent jump in volatile aircraft orders drove the November gains. But orders rose in many other categories, a sign of strength at factories and confidence among companies.
