Reservations for balloon fest soar Most sign-ups from seniors BY JEFF CHEW PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
SEQUIM — Sequim Balloon Festival’s executive director was flying high Friday after 120 reservations for balloon flights were made last week. Randall Tomaras opened reservations Tuesday for balloon flights during next fall’s festival. They started out slowly — 12 the first day — until a Peninsula Daily News story was published. Then balloon flight reservations for the Sept. 1-3 event soared. “The first 40 of the 120 are sponsors, so it also makes a sponsorship valuable now,” Tomaras said Friday. “This is exactly what is needed to get people on board.” All those reservations came in
despite the price per person: $250. Tomaras said he believes it is working in Sequim’s favor that there now is no balloon festival in Western Washington. The closest such event is in Prosser, near Eastern Washington’s Tri-Cities area. The festival, he said, is competing against the Boise, Idaho, balloon festival the same Labor Day weekend. “Most of our balloons will probably come from out of area,” he said, including the RE/MAX real estate balloon from Portland, Ore., and the POW/MIA balloon from St. Cloud, Minn.
Seniors eager to ride high He said most of those reserving spaces in balloons are between the ages of 65 and 70. “One is 94. Another is having an 80th birthday on day he is going up,” Tomaras said. TURN

‘I almost died,’ George Michael says ON FRIDAY, GEORGE Michael gave a press conference outside his London home, against the backdrop of a Christmas tree, to reassure fans that he is on the road to recovery after battling pneumonia, which he had contracted while on tour in Austria. Looking frail and weak and struggling for breath, the 48-year-old British singer said he had “almost died” and that it had been “touch and go” at times during the month he spent in a Vienna hospital. “It was by far the worst month of my life, but I am incredibly, incredibly fortunate to be here,” he said, following his release from hospital Thursday and his return to Britain. He wore a scarf to protect his neck and revealed that surgeons had performed a tracheotomy on him. He appeared on the verge of tears as he spoke of his gratitude toward the medical staff who saved his life. “I spent the past 10 days since I woke up literally thanking people for

JACOB E. GOLDMAN, 90, the former Xerox chief scientist who created the company’s famed Palo Alto Research Center, whose scientists and engineers invented the modern personal computer in the 1970s and developed an array of other pioneering computing technologies, has died. Mr. Goldman, a resident of Westport, Conn., died Tuesday at a hospital in nearby Stamford Mr. Goldman after a short in 1975 illness, said his son, Melvin. A physicist, Mr. Goldman had been the head of the research and development laboratory at Ford Motor Co. before joining Xerox, then based in Rochester, N.Y., as chief scientist in late 1967. At the time, Xerox was the dominant manufacturer of office copiers. But as chief scientist responsible for overseeing all of the company’s research, Mr. Goldman quickly focused his attention on new technologies. Proposing that Xerox “establish scientific preeminence” in fast-developing computer technology, Mr. Goldman persuaded the company to create a new corporate lab that would focus on the future.
Using AT&T’s Bell Laboratories as a model, he sketched out a corporate research center that would engage in basic science independent of any Xerox product line. Mr. Goldman recruited physicist George Pake to become the laboratory’s first director, and the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) opened near Stanford University in 1970.

His wife, Joette, confirmed the death. Mr. Campo and his band offered their boisterous Latin sounds on Paar’s show from 1954 to 1956. He was part of a trans-

TODAY IS MONDAY, Dec. 26, the 360th day of 2011. There are five days left in the year. Kwanzaa begins today. This is Boxing Day. Today’s Highlight in History: ■ On Dec. 26, 1941, during World War II, Winston Churchill became the first British prime minister to address a joint meeting of the U.S. Congress. Churchill grimly warned that “many disappointments and unpleasant surprises await us” but also expressed faith that “the British and American peoples will, for their own safety and for the good of all, walk together in majesty, in justice and in peace.” On this date: ■ In 1776, the British suffered
a major defeat in the Battle of Trenton during the Revolutionary War. ■ In 1799, former President George Washington was eulogized by Col. Henry Lee as “first in war, first in peace and first in the hearts of his countrymen.” ■ In 1908, Jack Johnson became the first African-American boxer to win the world heavyweight championship as he defeated Canadian Tommy Burns in Sydney, Australia. ■ In 1910, the London Palladium, Britain’s famous variety theater, first opened. ■ In 1944, during the World War II Battle of the Bulge, the embattled U.S. 101st Airborne
Division in Bastogne, Belgium, was relieved by units of the 4th Armored Division. ■ In 1966, Kwanzaa was first celebrated. ■ In 1972, the 33rd president of the United States, Harry S. Truman, died in Kansas City, Mo., at age 88. ■ In 1980, Iranian television footage was broadcast in the United States, showing a dozen of the American hostages sending messages to their families. ■ In 1996, 6-year-old beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey was found beaten and strangled in the basement of her family’s home in Boulder, Colo. To date, the slaying
remains unsolved. ■ In 2004, some 230,000 people, mostly in southern Asia, were killed by a tsunami triggered by the world’s most powerful earthquake in 40 years beneath the Indian Ocean. ■ Ten years ago: Actor Sir Nigel Hawthorne died in Hertfordshire, England, at age 72. ■ Five years ago: Former President Gerald R. Ford died in Rancho Mirage, Calif., at age 93. ■ One year ago: A powerful East Coast blizzard stranded thousands of travelers and dumped more than a foot of snow in some areas.

Briefly: World Prominent Egyptian blogger freed CAIRO — A prominent Egyptian blogger accused of attacking soldiers during deadly clashes was released Sunday after nearly two months in detention, during which he became a symbol of the pro-democracy activists’ struggle to end military rule in Egypt. Alaa Abdel-Fattah’s first stop after he was freed was Tahrir Square, the epicenter of the uprising that toppled longtime leader Hosni Mubarak in February. The square continues to be the focus of the campaign against the military, which took power after Mubarak’s ouster. Abdel-Fattah was accused of inciting violence and other offenses during clashes that killed 27 people Oct. 9, but he was never formally charged. He was arrested Oct. 30. The arrest raised tensions between the activists who engineered Mubarak’s ouster and the generals led by Hussein Tantawi, the deposed leader’s defense minister for some 20 years.
Execution explored TEHRAN, Iran — Authorities in Iran said Sunday they are again moving ahead with plans to execute a woman sentenced to death by stoning on an adultery conviction in a case that sparked an international outcry, but are
considering whether to carry out the punishment by hanging instead. Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani is already behind bars, serving a 10-year sentence on a separate conviction in the murder of her husband. Amid the international outrage her case generated, Iran in July 2010 suspended plans to carry out her death sentence on the adultery conviction. On Sunday, a senior judiciary official said experts were studying whether the punishment of stoning could be changed to hanging.
Rebel leader killed KHARTOUM, Sudan — The Sudanese army said it killed Khalil Ibrahim, the leader of the main Darfur rebel group, during fighting early Sunday west of the capital Khartoum, touting the death as a key victory over the rebels who had rejected a peace deal with the government. The army said Ibrahim and several of his associates died during a military offensive in the North Kordofan state that was in retaliation for a rebel attack there Saturday, which authorities said had killed an undisclosed number of civilians. Ibrahim led the Darfur-based Justice and Equality Movement, or JEM, which proved to be the most organized and effective military power in the region torn by conflict since 2003. The group did not join last year’s peace deal signed with the Khartoum government. The Associated Press

Attacks on Christmas kill dozens in Nigeria THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
LAGOS, Nigeria — Terror attacks across Nigeria by a radical Muslim sect killed at least 39 people Sunday, with the majority dying on the steps of a Catholic church after celebrating Christmas Mass as blood pooled in dust from a massive explosion. Authorities acknowledged they could not bring enough emergency medical personnel to care for the wounded outside St. Theresa Catholic Church in Madalla near Nigeria’s capital. Elsewhere, a bomb exploded amid gunfire in the central Nigeria city of Jos and a suicide car bomber attacked the military in the nation’s northeast as part of an apparently coordinated assault by the sect known as Boko Haram. The Christmas Day violence, denounced by world leaders and the Vatican, shows the threat of the widening insurrection posed by Boko Haram against Nigeria’s
weak central government. Despite a recent paramilitary crackdown against the sect in the oil-rich nation, it appears that Africa’s most populous nation remains unable to stop the threat. The White House condemned what it called a “senseless” attack, offered its condolences to the Nigerian people and pledged to assist authorities in bringing those responsible to justice. The first explosion Sunday struck St. Theresa Catholic Church just after 8 a.m. The attack killed 35 people and wounded another 52, said Slaku Luguard, a coordinator with Nigeria’s National Emergency Management Agency. Though billions of dollars of oil money flow into the nation’s budget yearly, Luguard’s agency could only send text messages to journalists asking for their help in getting more ambulances. Those wounded filled the cement floors of a nearby govern-
ment hospital, with television images showing them crying in pools of their own blood. Corpses lined an open-air morgue. The bombing and the delayed response drew anger from those gathering around the church after the blast. The crowd initially blocked emergency workers from the blast site, only allowing them in after soldiers arrived. “We’re trying to calm the situation,” Luguard said. “There are some angry people around trying to cause problems.” In Jos, a second explosion struck near the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Church, state government spokesman Pam Ayuba said. Gunmen later opened fire on police guarding the area, killing one officer, he said. Two other locally made explosives were found in a nearby building and disarmed.
‘Anonymous’ hackers target U.S.-based security think tank THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
LONDON — The loose-knit hacking movement “Anonymous” claimed Sunday to have stolen thousands of credit card numbers and other personal information belonging to clients of U.S.-based security think tank Stratfor. One hacker said the goal was to pilfer funds from individuals’ accounts to give away as Christmas donations, and some victims confirmed unauthorized transactions linked to their credit cards. Anonymous boasted of stealing Stratfor’s confidential client list, which includes a range of entities from banks to Apple, the U.S. Air Force to the Miami Police Department, and mining it for more than 4,000 credit card numbers, passwords and home addresses. “Not so private and secret anymore?” the group taunted in a message on Twitter, promising
that the attack on Stratfor was just the beginning of a Christmasinspired assault on a long list of targets. Anonymous said the client list it posted was a small slice of its 200 gigabytes worth of plunder it stole from Stratfor and promised more leaks. It said it was able to get the credit details in part because Stratfor didn’t bother encrypting them — an easy-to-avoid blunder which, if true, would be a major embarrassment for any securityrelated company. Austin, Texas-based Stratfor provides political, economic and military analysis to help clients reduce risk, according to a description on its YouTube page. It charges subscribers for its reports and analysis, delivered through the web, emails and videos.
It soon became clear that proprietary information about the companies and government agencies that subscribe to Stratfor’s newsletters did not appear to be at any significant risk, and that the main threat was posed to individual employees. Hours after publishing what it claimed was Stratfor’s client list, Anonymous tweeted a link to encrypted files online with the names, addresses and account details. “Not as many as you expected? Worry not, fellow pirates and robin hoods. These are just the ‘A’s’,” read a message posted online that encouraged readers to download a file of the hacked information. It also linked to images online that it suggested were receipts for charitable donations made by the group manipulating the credit card data it stole.

STUDIO ESTIMATES SUNDAY placed “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol” a solid No. 1 with $26.5 million domestically over its first weekend in full release. The movie raised its total to $59 million since it started a week earlier in huge-screen cinemas and expanded nationwide Wednesday. Generally well-reviewed movies — “The Adventures of Tintin,” “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” and “We Bought a Zoo” — opened with modest to weak results.

The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office said the 52-year-old man was arrested at the Hayloft Bar in Port Richey on Thursday afternoon about 10 minutes after he left the bank. Deputies said he’s the man who robbed a Wells Fargo bank branch earlier, but not before stopping off at the Hayloft for a brew.

Briefly: State Pets die in Poulsbo house fire POULSBO — The Kitsap County Fire Marshal is investigating a fire at a Poulsbo home that killed two dogs, two cats and a pet python. The family was not home when the fire was reported just after 9 p.m. Friday. Poulsbo Fire Capt. Bob Brooks said the fire was mostly confined to the kitchen. Firefighters found the dead animals in other
areas of the home. The pets died from heat and smoke inhalation. Two other dogs were found unharmed outside the home, and a cat was found unharmed in the basement of the one-story home. The Kitsap Sun reported that fire crews were able to get the family’s Christmas gifts out from under the tree.
Dog thrown VANCOUVER, Wash. — The Washington State Patrol said a Portland, Ore., woman threw her boyfriend’s dog into traffic
on Interstate 205, where it was struck and killed while trying to walk back to the shoulder. Troopers said Shellie L. Hubbard, 45, was arguing with her boyfriend as they drove Thursday night near Vancouver. Trooper Ryan Tanner said she hit him with a broken coffee mug, slicing his hand. The Columbian reported they pulled over, and she let the dog out of the car. When the boyfriend tried to pick up the dog, she threw it into traffic. Hubbard was later arrested in Vancouver with
methamphetamine in her possession. She appeared in Clark County Superior Court on Friday and was ordered held on $20,000 bail for investigation of assault, drug and animal cruelty charges.
4-day school week? EATONVILLE — The Eatonville school district is considering a four-day school week with longer days as a way to cut spending. The move would cut 30 days from the school calendar, The News Tribune in Tacoma reported.
But it would also cut about $200,000 from the district’s operating budget of $18 million. Most savings would come by cutting a day’s food service, utility costs and busing every week. And in the 460-squaremile district, transportation is expensive. The savings would be used to expand the district’s all-day kindergarten programs.
New trial SPOKANE — Defense attorneys are seeking a new trial for a Spokane police officer convicted of
using excessive force in a beating that led to the death of a mentally ill man. The Spokesman-Review reported attorneys for Karl Thompson filed a motion for a new trial Friday, claiming judicial error and juror misconduct. Thompson was convicted by a jury of violating Otto Zehm’s civil rights by using excessive force and then lying about it to investigators. Zehm died two days after the March 2006 beating. Thompson faces up to 20 years in prison when he is sentenced Jan. 27. The Associated Press

People from Whidbey Island wishing to attend the event can ride the 10:15 a.m. sailing on the Salish for free, limited to the 750-passenger capacity. The Wild Rose Chorale, a popular Port Townsend vocal group, will provide the entertainment, said Port Townsend Marketing Director Christina Pivarnik. Huether said the Kennewick will go into service later in January after crew training is completed.
She said the inaugural voyage and the community celebration could not be held on the same day because of the Kennewick delegation.
Kennewick plans “We had to pick a date for the event to give the people coming in from Kennewick a chance to plan ahead,” she said. The mayor of Kennewick and other local dignitaries will attend, she said. “This will be a unique experience for them since
they don’t live in a place where ferries operate,” she said. The Salish will operate on its normal schedule throughout the day, and there will be no event parking available at the terminals. The Salish will continue to operate on the route until the Kennewick is ready, at which time the Salish will become the state ferries system’s backup vessel until it rejoins the route for the summer schedule in June. The ferry system has
said it wants to run the Kennewick at full capacity as soon as possible to determine if there are any warranty issues. The three 64-vessel car ferries represent the Kwadi Tabil class of ferries, built for the state by Vigor Shipyards — formerly Todd Pacific — for $213.2 million. The new ferries were the first built by the state in more than 10 years.

be turned away. Balloons will fly three mornings, weather permitting, and usually only go up early — before the temperature heats up and the winds become unpredictable, he said. Most balloons hold three people and a pilot. All pilots are Federal Aviation Administrationcertified and have the required number of hours before they can take passengers on rides. For the safety of the pas-
sengers, balloons will not go up in rain or high wind, he said, which is why the festival was planned for September, which is normally the driest and least windy time of year. If balloons do not go up, those with reservations will receive full refunds, he said. The expense of ballooning is another factor in the cost per flight, he said. A four person balloon starts at $30,000, and the more colors and design, the more expensive it is.
The chase vehicles and the trailers can run up to $70,000. All balloonists that take people up for rides carry insurance that cost $1,000 a year per balloon. Then there is the propane fuel, which can run up to $150 a run. Most balloonists travel to get to a festival, and the gas for their trucks and other expenses can cost $300 to $1,000 for a round trip. A balloon is good for 500
to 600 hours of flying time. Most balloon festivals do not offer rides because it increases the festival insurance, Tomaras said. Sponsors of each balloon pay $1,500. Reservations can be made by emailing Sequim BalloonFestival@gmail.com or calling 360-461-2202.

Three weeks ago, Jessie’s doctor informed her that she has a chiari malformation, a defect that causes her cerebellum to press on her skull. It causes intense headaches and can grow progressively worse. Jessie plans to see a specialist in Seattle next month; she may have to undergo brain surgery. Looking at her husband seated beside her, she’s philosophical. “We’ve been through the worst part,” Jessie said. “At least this isn’t an emergency. It’s not as traumatic [as Dan’s illness] . . . with the cancer, he was on his deathbed,” while the chiari malformation is not life-threatening at this point. Dan, for his part, hopes to return to work at Westport in early 2012. He said his position there is being held for him, and he’s eager, of course, to get back to earning some income.
On Christmas weekend, the Spichers spent time with family — including one of their guardian Angels for Dan. She’s Michelle Maike, who first met Jessie when she was a teenager. Jessie dated Maike’s son David when they were both at Port Angeles High School; Jessie and Maike’s family have been friends ever since. Maike and her husband, Steve Waugaman, also have a daughter, Elissa, who lives in California. Neither Elissa nor David, who works in Las Vegas, could make it home for Christmas. But the Maike-Waugaman household has been filled with cheer this weekend. The Spichers came over for Christmas Eve dinner, to celebrate the cancer’s remission, the end of chemotherapy and the bonds that have grown stronger this year. “They are my family,” Maike said of Jessie and Dan. “They have been a blessing, and a great gift.”

Food bank in Forks gets boost from drives But things not so bright for next year BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
FORKS â€” Food drives in Forks have been successful this year, netting the Forks Community Food Bank enough in cash and food to get its clients through the end of the year, said Pat Soderlind, executive director. However, once that food is gone, likely by Saturday, it will be back to the drawing board, Soderlind said. The cost of food is going up, she said, and that affects the food bankâ€™s ability to purchase what food is not donated, she said. The cost of Thanksgiving food baskets was $500 more than it was in 2010, and there was an increase in demand for Christmas baskets, she said.
Declining resources Many families that once had two incomes are down to one. â€œThey can still pay the rent and the utilities, but then the money is gone,â€? Soderlind said. â€œItâ€™s difficult for them,â€? she said. Another group that is struggling are families of illegal-immigrant fathers who have been deported she said. The remaining family members are U.S. citizens,
Forks Community Food Bank volunteer Jolene Price puts away items collected from various West End food drives at the Forks Food Bank recently. but with the major wageearner gone, they are struggling to provide the basics for the children, she said. The community stepped up when the food bank put out the word that it needed help. â€œIt just happens, people just come out,â€? Soderlind said. Food drives have included efforts from the Forks High School boysâ€™
basketball team, the Boy Scouts of America with the Forks Elks Lodge and the Forks Elementary School Booster Club. The food bank also received several thousand pounds of food and cash donations from Forks Outfitters, 950 S. Forks Ave. Among those organizing food drives was Ronâ€™s Food Mart, at 170 N. Forks Ave, which collected 250 pounds
Going after owners could be an option BY TOM CALLIS PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” City Hall is not ready to write off the $315,272 bill Peninsula Plywood owes for utilities, City Manager Kent Myers said. Myers said Friday the city is reviewing how it can force payment, including going after the owners of the failed mill. PenPly President Josh Renshaw had said that the mill, which officially closed Tuesday, does not have the funds to pay the bill or the roughly $99,000 it owes the Port of Port Angeles for rent.
$99,000 in rent payments PenPly missed through this month does not include the $170,100 the port agreed to defer as part of its lease agreement. PenPly was scheduled to start paying the deferred rent this month. Robb said he has not considered going after the owners for the money yet and has not talked with the city about whether the port could end up paying the utility bill.

Fifty years after Steinbeck traveled America with his dog, Charley, Olson followed the same route in reverse. He traveled 12,751 miles in 80 days. Along the way, he met an array of characters, including a homeless couple in a Walmart parking lot, a sports trivia savant in Connecticut and a literary cab driver in New Orleans. Olson returned home with the feeling that America is the greatest melting pot the world has ever known and an understanding of Steinbeckâ€™s seminal statement from his book Travels with Charley, â€œWe find after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us.â€? Olsonâ€™s book will be available for purchase and signing at the event and is currently available in the Museum Shop at the Jefferson County Museum.
PORT ANGELES â€” A $500 grant has been awarded for the restoration of the parapet at the Old Fire Hall on Lincoln Street. Itâ€™s a small grant, but city and county officials hope that it is only the beginning in the historical restoration of the art deco building at 215 S. Lincoln St. that served as the cityâ€™s first permanent fire station, jail and City Council chambers. The building, constructed in 1931, is one of three buildings that is part of the Port Angeles Civic Historic District recognized by the National Register of Historic Places.

The grant went to the Clallam County. It is specifically for design and planning for fixing the parapet, a false front above the roof, said Jim Jones, county administrator. It remains to be seen if more money will come in for restoration, he said. â€œWeâ€™re applying for several grants from different sources,â€? Jones said. â€œWhether we get them or notâ€? is uncertain. â€œThese are difficult times,â€? he said.
Restoration study The city of Port Angeles paid $25,000 and Clallam County contributed $15,000 to fund a firehouse restoration study. The building was recently retrofitted for earthquakes and is essentially structurally sound, but windows and doors should be replaced, and work is needed on the roof and the masonry walls, it was found. Also, part of the ground behind the building is slumping and needs to be
reinforced, the study said. Reinforcing the former City Hallâ€™s foundation and performing some minimal repairs is estimated to cost $230,000. Itâ€™s estimated to cost another $1.05 million to restore the exterior of the building.
Veteran center One option being considered is to relocate the Clallam County Veterans Center and various services for veterans to the building. After city offices moved in the 1950s, the building was occupied by a number of private businesses, but the first floor has been vacant since 2006, while the upper floor had a tenant until last year. The Valerie Sivinski Washington Preserves grants ranged from $500 to $1,500 for historic preservation projects throughout the state. Since 1998, it has awarded 90 projects totaling nearly $80,000.

■ SOCIAL SECURITY TAX CUT: Voting 229 for and 193 against, House Republicans on Tuesday rejected a Senate bill (HR 3630) to extend through February Social Security payroll tax cuts, long-term unemployment benefits and current Medicare reimbursement levels for doctors — all paid for by increases in fees charged by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The vote embraced a rival House version of the same bill that would extend the three measures for one year and pay for them with cuts in domestic spending. The vote also requested a conference committee to negotiate the competing House and Senate versions. However, all of this became moot three days later when House Republicans reversed course and accepted the Senate bill without changes. The acceptance was by “unanimous consent” and did not involve a record vote. Begun this year, the tax cut is an economic stimulus

Alan West’s comparison of their party’s political messaging to the propaganda of Joseph Goebbels, a Nazi minister who helped lead the Third Reich’s “Final Solution” to eradicate European Jewry. As a privileged resolution, the measure (H Res 504) was not debatable. West, a Florida Republican, recently told reporters Goebbels would be “very proud of the Democrat Party because they have an incredible propaganda machine.” He later repeated the comparison in a letter to Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich. A yes vote opposed the Democratic motion. Dicks voted no.

backing from 94 percent of Republicans and 6 percent of Democrats. Republicans and Democrats differ mainly over how to offset the tens of billions of dollars it would cost to extend the tax cut, jobless benefits and Medicare “doc fix” from March through December. House Republicans voted Dec. 13 to pay for the extensions by steps such as raising Medicare premiums on seniors earning more than $80,000, freezing federal workers’ pay; cutting the federal workforce and barring millionaires from receiving unemployment benefits or food stamps. The only “pay for” so far approved by the Senate is an increase in fees that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac charge the home-mortgage industry.

States weighing in on cigarette warning Washington, others support graphic warning BY MICHAEL FELBERBAUM THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Kirsten Mitchell, 3, can barely contain her excitement as Renee Walstad helps her “yarn bomb” a statue outside the Imagine Children’s Museum in Everett last week.
City gets warm, fuzzy as yarn bomber ties one on Kind of like graffitti, it’s knitted — not sprayed BY JULIE MUHLSTEIN THE DAILY HERALD
EVERETT — A pompom here, a knitted ornament there. Everett has been hit by a yarn bomber. “I just wanted to spread some Christmas cheer,” Renee Walstad said. Walstad is part of a warm-and-fuzzy movement being embraced by creative types all over the world. Her efforts are modest compared with the ways some yarn artists decorate public places. For some yarn bombers, what began as a covert operation has blossomed into commissioned public art projects. For Walstad, 28, it began early this month when she started putting knitted and crocheted decorations on Everett’s downtown sculptures. She calls it a “Yarnvent calendar.” “You know, like Advent,” the Lake Stevens woman said. “Every day before Christmas, I put up an ornament.” She promised to take the pieces down after Christmas.
er efforts are modest compared with the ways some yarn artists decorate public places. For some yarn bombers, what began as a covert operation has blossomed into commissioned public art projects.
“Some people take them and put them on their own trees. Whatever happens happens,” she said. On Tuesday, in the late afternoon chill, Walstad was joined by several children from Everett’s Refuge Foursquare Church, where she is a member. Some of the kids had helped make the yarn doodads they put on several Wall Street sculptures. They decked out “Balancing Big,” Joseph Kinnebrew’s sculpture of stacked red boxes outside the Monte Cristo building. When they finished, the metal sculpture looked like giant gifts tied up with string.
Cassie Smith, 12, of Lake Stevens, described making a finger-crocheted rope. “You tie a knot around your thumb, and twirl it around, and twirl it around,” Cassie said. In some places, yarn bombing is a big adventure. The phenomenon was explained in a 2009 book, Yarn Bombing: The Art of Crochet and Knit Graffiti” Authors Mandy Moore and Leanne Prain, of Vancouver, B.C., call yarn bombing “a quiet revolution,” a movement “that started underground and is now embraced by crochet and knitting artists of all ages.” Last May, The New York Times published an article on yarn bombing with the headline “Graffiti’s Cozy, Feminine Side.” It was accompanied by a photograph of New York City’s “Charging Bull” statue, a symbol of Wall Street, encased in a crocheted purple and pink coat. Walstad, who works in a clinic as an assistant, took her first foray into yarn bombing June 11 — proclaimed on a Facebook page as “International Yarn Bombing Day.”
RICHMOND, Va. — Several states, including Washington, and U.S. territories are weighing in on a lawsuit over proposed graphic cigarette warning labels that include a sewn-up corpse of a smoker and a picture of diseased lungs, saying the federal government should be allowed to require the labels for the “lethal and addictive” products. The 24 attorneys general filed a friend of the court brief Friday in the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington in support of the Food and Drug Administration’s challenge of a lower court ruling in the case. Last month, a U.S. District Court judge granted a request by some of the nation’s largest tobacco companies, including R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. and Lorillard Tobacco Co., to block the labels while deciding whether the labels violate their free speech rights. The judge ruled it is likely the cigarette makers would succeed in a lawsuit to block the requirement that the labels be placed on cigarette packs next year.
Tobacco’s challenge The tobacco companies have questioned the constitutionality of the labels, saying the warnings don’t simply convey facts to inform people’s decision whether to smoke but instead force the cigarette makers to display government anti-smoking advocacy more prominently than their own branding. They also say that changing cigarette packaging will cost millions of dollars. Meanwhile, the FDA has said that the public interest in conveying the dangers of smoking outweighs the companies’ free speech rights. In the filing Friday, the attorneys general said that the First Amendment does not prevent the government from requiring that “lethal and addictive products carry
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
These are two of nine new warning labels the Food and Drug Administration approved for use on cigarette packs. warning labels that effectively inform consumers of the risks those products entail.” “Over forty years’ experience with small, obscurely placed text-only warning labels on cigarette packs has demonstrated that they simply do not work,” they wrote. “The warning labels reflect the unique magnitude of the problem they address, the deadly and addictive nature of the product, and the unparalleled threat this product and its marketing pose to America’s youth.” In addition to Washington state, the brief was filed by attorneys general from Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, the District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Mississippi, Montana, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Ohio, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, the Virgin Islands, Washington and West Virginia.
FDA OKs labels In June, the FDA approved nine new warning labels that companies are to print on the entire top half of cigarette packs, front and back. The new warnings, each of which includes a number for a stop-smoking hotline, must constitute 20 percent
of cigarette advertising, and marketers are to rotate use of the images. One label depicts a corpse with its chest sewn up and the words “Smoking can kill you.” Another shows a healthy pair of lungs beside a yellow and black pair with a warning that smoking causes fatal lung disease. Joining North Carolinabased R.J. Reynolds and Lorillard in the lawsuit are Commonwealth Brands Inc., Liggett Group LLC and Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Co. Inc. Richmond-based Altria Group Inc., parent company of the nation’s largest cigarette maker, Philip Morris USA, which makes top-selling Marlboros, is not a part of the lawsuit. While the tobacco industry’s legal challenge may not hold up, it could delay the new warning labels for years. And that is likely to save cigarette makers millions of dollars in lost sales and increased packaging costs. Tobacco companies are increasingly relying on their packaging to build brand loyalty and grab consumers. It’s one of few advertising levers left to them after the government curbed their presence in magazines, billboards and TV.

Business leaders open to governorâ€™s sales tax hike along with reforms on the table. â€œItâ€™s a very difficult situation that weâ€™re in with the budget,â€? Albaugh said. â€œItâ€™s very hard for me not to support what the governor is proposing.â€? Democratic leaders have struggled to corral business support for recent tax proposals. The income tax was defeated last year, with opposition from Boeing and Microsoft. Voters also repealed taxes on soda, candy and other items after a campaign by the American Beverage Association.
BY MIKE BAKER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
OLYMPIA â€” Washington business leaders who opposed an income tax proposal last year are signaling that they are prepared to embrace Gov. Chris Gregoireâ€™s new revenue plan. With further cuts to education on the line, Gregoire wants voters to approve a temporary increase in the state sales tax in the coming months. Jim Albaugh, president and CEO of Boeing Co.â€™s commercial aircraft division, said last week that the state must consider revenues
But now, businesses such as Boeing and Microsoft are concerned that pulling more cash from education will lead to a less-qualified workforce down the line. Microsoft general counsel Brad Smith said itâ€™s important that reforms are approved along with revenue. He wants to see the state adopt a more sustainable budget for the long term as well as ensure public schools are a funding priority. But he also acknowledged a need for cash, just a year after he said an income tax proposal would make it

Different ways to remember Alamo WELL, WHAT A relief. Just in time for the holidays, Congress showed us it can work in a spirit of bipartisan cooperation to pass a two-month extension of a popular tax cut. On its own! With perhaps a Gail small amount Collins of prodding. The payroll tax cut bill zipped through Congress on Friday, approved by a Senate with only two members present and then passed by a near-empty House in a five-minute session. Then everybody went away. Why can’t they do this all the time? The House Republicans, who had tried to hold up the bill out of principle, only to be pummeled by everyone from John McCain to The Wall Street Journal editorial page, hunkered down for a seriously sulky Christmas. “In the end, House Republicans felt like they were re-enact-
ing the Alamo, with no reinforcements and our friends shooting at us,” said Rep. Kevin Brady of Texas, one of the leaders of the anti-two-month-tax-cut rebellion. Texans have strong feelings about the Alamo, which is perhaps why whenever we get a Texan president we also get a war. But this did seem to be a strange comment. Was Brady saying that the Mexican soldiers who were shooting at the Alamo were actually friends who just wanted to get home in time for a previously scheduled fund-raising party? Or maybe Brady was expressing the hope that, like the defenders of the Alamo, the House Republicans would be remembered as valiant warriors by a nation prepared to forget that, at the time of the battle, there were quite a lot of smart people who thought that having this fight was a really terrible idea. But I digress. Our question today is: What lesson can we draw from all these Congressional high jinks? That creating policy in twomonth increments is a good plan? The boat has already sailed on
that one. Practically everything Congress does these days is in two-month increments. They can’t even get it together to do a normal budget for the Federal Aviation Administration. No, I think the moral here is pretty clear. We have talked for nearly three years about how the tea party is terrorizing the Republican establishment, until the old country-club, deal-making model was verging on extinction. But it now appears that if the new populist right does something that actually endangers the well-being of the old, entitled right, the establishment will rise up and slap those little whippersnappers down faster than you can say Mitch McConnell. That goes for the presidential nomination, too. The minute it began to look as if Newt Gingrich might actually win, Mitt Romney was flooded with money and endorsements. One Friends of Romney Super PAC has purchased about $2.8 million in Iowa TV ads. Everywhere you look in Iowa, there’s an evil, demented Newt on the screen. You would think
he’d been cast as the new head zombie in “The Walking Dead.” Gingrich, in response, could only whine. His campaign’s highlight of the week may have been the announcement that it was creating a “Pets With Newt” Web site to highlight the candidate’s love of animals. “Pets With Newt” may be an attempt to remind Iowans that Mitt Romney once drove to Canada with the family Irish setter strapped to the roof of the car. This is clearly a weak point in the Mitt armor, which came up this week in a Wall Street Journal interview with the candidate. “Uh — love my dog. That’s all I got for you,” Romney responded. In the same interview, Romney continued his long-running attack on Barack Obama as an enemy of the successful, predicting that the president would wage “a campaign of envy and class warfare.” To do his part in tamping down the envy problem, Romney is resisting requests that he show us his tax returns. (“Never say never, but I don’t intend to do so.”) This is the song of the Republican establishment, which
hateshateshates class warfare. Like when the nonrich start asking why people who make millions of dollars in annual income can’t accept a modest levy to pay for that payroll tax cut. They won’t, and the White House and Senate Democrats long ago conceded that point in the negotiations with nonradical Republicans, who wrung their hands and said there was simply nothing they could do because any tax on the wealthy would cause the crazy Republican base to go . . . crazy. They’re helpless! However, when the crazy base threatens to create a stalemate that makes the entire Republican Party look bad, or when the crazy base seems inclined to nominate an unelectable presidential candidate, thwap! It turns out that there’s life in the old dog yet. Just keep him off the car roof.

‘Cool’ cities not necessarily warm THE SOFT ECONOMY has left lots of Americans in place, whether they want to be or not. That would include the most mobile group, young people. But to the extent that Froma adults ages 25 Harrop to 34 are still moving, their preferred destinations seem to be “cool cities,” according to U.S. Census Bureau figures. What are the so-called cool cities? Denver, Houston, Dallas, Seattle, Raleigh, Austin, Washington, D.C., and Portland, Ore., among others. And what makes them cool? I had to ask. They have a “certain vibe, a coffee house scene, a night scene,” responded William Frey, a Brookings Institution demographer
who follows such trends. “You know it when you see it.” That’s what I would have said. Most interesting, young people are headed to these places with or without a job. What are they thinking? They’re thinking that if you’re not going to have a job, you might as well not have one in a groovy place. “It’s Only for Now” go the lyrics from “Avenue Q,” a musical about recent college grads, unemployed in New York and learning they’re not that special. Speaking of college grads, the Census Bureau also reports that more educated Americans are moving to places that are already home to many like them. The result has been a brain gain for some areas and a brain drain for others. The gainers include Boston, metro New York, Madison, Wis., and California’s Silicon Valley. Educated cities tend to have colleges, high-tech industry and,

if you look at the above lists, generally liberal-minded attitudes. As such, they share many characteristics of the cool cities. Note that most of the cool and educated places don’t have cheap housing and low taxes. Note that most aren’t in warm climates, and some have downright nasty winters. The Texas cities would be the exception. And they’re not necessarily proximate to glamorous ski or beach resorts. Omaha has enjoyed one of the strongest brain gains in the country, even as the rural Plains continue to lose educated people. During the last decade, the percentage of Omaha’s adults with college degrees rose 6 points to 33 percent. What does Omaha have? Another question for Frey. “Omaha has a river [the Missouri] and a close airport,” he explains.
It has nice amenities and offers face-to-face daily interaction with people who have a lot in common. Like other favorites, it is cosmopolitan. The apparent allure of densely populated regions goes against another prediction of years ago: that the communications revolution would cause the educated to spread out from the crowded urban corridors. After all, one could work anywhere with an Internet connection. So why slog through the slush on the Massachusetts Turnpike when you could do your job beside a powdery ski slope in Colorado or a balmy beach in Maui — and in your slippers? A few years ago, messy winters up north supposedly helped feed escapees to such Sun Belt hot spots as Phoenix, Las Vegas, Orlando and Riverside, Calif. All those places are now working through the subsequent housing bust, and their influx of

college grads has slowed to a trickle. Things will eventually turn around for them, Frey believes, “but it’s never going to be as good again as in the middle of the last decade.” As for weather, “weather doesn’t matter if you’re in a place that has all kinds of connections for you socially and in terms of your job,” he says. Isolation, even splendid isolation, is apparently not the ideal life for the young and the educated. To quote from another musical — actually, to misquote — “People need people.”

MERCER ISLAND — Starting next month, Mercer Island parents will be held responsible for underage drinking at their homes even if they are out of town and unaware it is happening. The Seattle Times reported that the recently passed “social host” ordinance is believed to be the first of its kind in the state. Starting Jan. 13, people who own, rent or lease property where teenage drinking happens can be fined $250. It is already illegal for adults to provide alcohol to minors or for parents to let their underage children drink. City Council Member Mike Cero said the new ordinance takes the idea of parent responsibility a step further. Parents will be held accountable even if they don’t know the kids are drinking and not even in town.
Application forms are available on that website. Klein encourages hunters who enroll in the program to prepare thoroughly for the written test because applicants are allowed only one chance to retake the exam. Those who successfully complete the enrollment process will receive a master hunter patch and identification card and will be eligible to participate in depredation hunts.
To qualify for the program, applicants must demonstrate a high level of hunting skill and a commitment to lawful and ethical hunting practices, said Sgt. Carl Klein, manager of Fish Hunter Education Division. “This program was designed to create a pool of highly qualified hunters who can help the department manage wildlife in sensitive situations,”
Klein said. “This is a great opportunity for conscientious, committed hunters to assume a leadership role among their peers.” Hunters enrolling in the program must pay a nonrefundable $50 application fee, pass a criminal background check and a written exam, and meet other qualifications described on the Master Hunter website at wdfw.wa.gov/hunting/ masterhunter.

The goal behind book breaks is to encourage reading anywhere and anytime. “The library is committed to getting kids hooked on books at an early age,” said Library Director Paula Barnes.

Boston forward Kevin Garnett backs up into New York forward Jared Jeffries on Sunday in New York.
Knicks tame Celtics BY BRIAN MAHONEY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK — Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks know it will never be easy against the Celtics. Not beating them in one game, and certainly not beating them for a division title. But pulling out the kind of nailbiter that’s long gone Boston’s way in this rivalry only reinforced the Knicks’ belief that they can do it — and even the Celtics see a difference. Anthony scored 37 points, including a pair of free throws with the game tied and 16 seconds left, and New York survived a seesaw season opener Sunday to edge the Celtics 106-104. “Most importantly for us, as a new team, we showed something,” Anthony said. “We came together as a team. Even when we got down, there wasn’t no frowns. “Nobody was down. Mentally everybody was still up about it, and we willed our way to this win.” Amare Stoudemire added 21 points and Toney Douglas had 19 for the Knicks, who led by 17 in the first half, trailed by 10 in the fourth quarter, then pulled out a thrilling Christmas victory in the delayed opener to the 2011-12 season. Rajon Rondo had 31 points and 13 assists, nearly leading the Celtics back without an injured Paul Pierce. But Kevin Garnett missed a jumper just before the buzzer, the kind of shot Boston always seems to make against the Knicks. “They seem to have a little swag and confidence behind them,” Garnett said. “It’s good for the city. It’s good for the Knicks. I’m going to see how consistent they are with that, but for the most part Carmelo played really well.” Brandon Bass had 20 points and 11 rebounds in his Celtics debut, and Ray Allen added 20 points. Garnett finished with 15 points. He and Allen had a sleepy Christmas start, with Rondo keeping the Celtics in the game until they got going in the second half. “I thought we were as soft as you could be in the first quarter and then I thought we joined in to the 2011-12 season, and from that point on I was pretty happy with the way we played,” Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. “I thought we competed well.” But it wasn’t enough against the Knicks, who withstood a costly knee injury to first-round pick Iman Shumpert to beat the team that swept them out of the first round of last season’s playoffs.

Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch eludes a San Francisco player while scoring a touchdown in the second half of Saturday’s Christmas Eve game in Seattle. Lynch’s touchdown was the first rushing score allowed by the 49ers’ defense.
Finishing year strong Lynch rushes through run-dominating Niners BY TIM BOOTH THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SEATTLE — Marshawn Lynch got his 100 yards. He scored the first touchdown rushing this season against San Francisco, and with it came another shower of Skittles that required industrial blowers to clear the end zone of debris. Didn’t matter. Seattle’s hope of completing its second-half rally with a spot in the postseason is over. “We lost. Thanks y’all. I appreciate it,” Lynch said. The Seahawks’ late-season charge toward an unlikely play-
off berth ended Saturday thanks to four field goals from David Akers and one big turnover in San Francisco’s 19-17 victory. The loss snapped Seattle’s three-game winning streak and ended its hopes of recovering from a 2-6 start. Even with a victory, the Seahawks (7-8) were going to need plenty of help in the final two weeks to reach the postseason, but those hopes were dashed when Tarvaris Jackson fumbled while being tackled from behind by Larry Grant with 1:07 left. “We’ve really come a long ways,” Seattle coach Pete Car-
roll said. “I know we have one game left, and we’re looking forward to get that done and finish on a good note, but our football team is so much different than we were early on. It’s just sticking to it; playing tough.” Lynch has personified what Carroll wants out of his team. He became the first running back to top 100 yards rushing against the 49ers since Week 11 of the 2009 season with his 107 yards on 21 carries. Against the top run defense in the NFL, Lynch gashed the 49ers for powerful runs of 18, 15 and 10 yards in the first half, before a more workmanlike effort in the final 30 minutes as Seattle’s offense struggled to get anything going. He also ended the 49ers’ streak of denying touchdowns
on the ground. Lynch scooted around the left side for a 4-yard TD with 6:41 left that gave Seattle a 17-16 lead and came moments after Heath Farwell blocked Andy Lee’s punt to set up the Seahawks’ only points of the second half. San Francisco (12-3) was the first team in NFL history to not allow a touchdown rushing through 14 games. Then the 49ers ran into Lynch. “We take pride in stopping the run and not giving up a 100yard rusher or a rushing touchdown,” Grant said. “They got the opportunity to do that today. Hats off to Marshawn. He’s one of the best in the league and the best we’ve played against all year long.” TURN
Teams showing star power Area wrestlers dominate tourney CONVENTIONAL WISDOM SAID that there was no star power in wrestling this year on the North Olympic Peninsula because there are no returning top-three state competitors. But conventional Brad wisdom has been taken down and is LaBrie close to being pinned after several wrestlers have shown they can compete at state-caliber levels in the early season. Cutter Grahn of Forks, the top area returner after capturing fourth place in state last season, has shown he is to be reckoned with in Class 1A competition while Port Angeles and Sequim showcased their wrestlers at The Battle for the Axe tournament in Port Angeles last Wednesday. The tourney opened with star power when former Port Angeles state champions John Camp and Julio Garcia were introduced to wrestling fans just before action started in the first round. More on the special guests later in this column. The Roughriders and Wolves dominated their team pools Wednesday and ended up meeting for the tournament championship match, won 50-24 by Port Angeles. Some of those top-notch wrestlers to watch this year are Riders Brady Anderson, Josh Basden, Ozzy Swagerty, Kody Steele, Kacee Garner, Brian Cristion and Zach Grall.
Wrestling Notebook and Port Angeles’ Anderson, Basden, Swagerty and Grall. Grall, a senior and team captain at 195 pounds, had an especially strong tournament, not only going 4-0 but winning all four matches by pin in the first round. Grall’s weight class opened the championship match against Sequim as the senior pinned Austin Leach quickly for a 6-0 lead that Port Angeles never gave up. Grall, who is an impressive 10-2 record on the year, said he wanted to open the tourney’s last team match on a strong note. “We wanted to keep the Axe [tourney trophy], and I wanted to come out and take care of business,” Grall said at the end of his match. The 2011 Battle for the Axe was a strong tournament that helped Grall keep his focus during the long day. “We have some tough teams here,” he said. “I’m used to hard competition and I just wanted to go out and take care of business.” The standout wrestler, who is ranked No. 7 in state on the Class 2A level, said he plans to stay on message the entire season and finish up his prep career on a high note. “My personal goal is to take state,” he said. “I know where I want to be at, but I also know that it’s going to be a lot of hard work.”

Mavericks finally hang championship banner THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
DALLAS — With a tug from Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Kidd, Jason Terry and others, the Dallas Mavericks unveiled their championship banner minutes before opening this season against the team they knocked off in the NBA finals — LeBron James and the Miami Heat. The ceremony was supposed to have been held Nov. 1, but the lockout pushed it back. So after waiting until their 31st season to become champions for the first time, the Mavericks and their fans waited another 54 days. “Thirty-one years you waited — 31 years! — to call your team a champion, ladies and gentlemen,” Terry said. “A champion!” The Heat were in their locker room while clips of last year’s postseason were shown, followed by brief comments from NBA
Commissioner David Stern, Mavs owner Mark Cuban, coach Rick Carlisle, Terry and Nowitzki. Nowitzki rocked nervously foot to foot at the start of the ceremony, while Cuban smiled and bit his lip, hands jammed in the pockets of his jeans. Once Cuban received the trophy, he held it above his head and turned slowly for everyone to see. He thanked fans and behindthe-scenes members of the organization, then handed the microphone to Carlisle. He started by naming the two coaches and six players no longer with the team. “All of these guys will forever be part of Mavs history and the Mavs’ family,” Carlisle said. Carlisle then introduced the returning players, all wearing their new warmup outfits featuring the words “2011 NBA Champions” and the trophy logo on the
back. Cheers built with each introduction, capped by roars of “M! V! P!” for Nowitzki. “This is a special, special day for all of us,” Nowitzki said. Franchise founders Don and Linda Carter watched from their usual courtside seats.
Behind the curtain With straps for everyone to yank, a dark curtain was peeled away, showing off the banner. It features a huge trophy, the team’s logo and has the last name of each player printed around the border. The signatures of Cuban and Carlisle are in the two bottom corners. Before the ceremony, Carlisle said he wanted it to end quickly so the game could begin, and Cuban it would mean more to fans.
Judging by the looks on their faces, they were either downplaying their emotions or enjoyed it more than they expected. Carlisle’s daughter went on the court with him, and Cuban was later joined by two of his kids. Nowitzki and Kidd certainly seemed awed as they watched the banner rise to the rafters. They couldn’t take their eyes off it — or just didn’t want to. It hangs directly over the free throw line on the end of the court in front of the Mavs’ bench. The Mavericks will have one more chance to savor their title — they get their rings later this season. The lockout messed up the timing of that, too, because Cuban wanted to let Nowitzki, Kidd, Terry and Marion help with the THE ASSOCIATED PRESS design and he wasn’t allowed to talk to them while the season was The Dallas Mavericks celebrate their title banner. on hold.

Hawks: Lynch finishing season strong CONTINUED FROM B1 Lynch has 100 yards or more in six of his last eight games and has touchdowns in the last 11. Even though he was reluctant to talk, Lynch’s teammates were effusive in their praise. “If Marshawn Lynch isn’t in the Pro Bowl, there is something wrong with the voting system. Plain and simple,” said Seattle wide receiver Doug Baldwin, who caught a 13-yard TD pass in the first quarter. “He’s proved it week in and week out. “Rushing for over 100 yards on the No. 1-ranked rush defense in the NFL, that’s not something that’s easily achieved, and he did it.” Seattle took a 10-3 halftime lead and gave San Francisco the playoff preview it sought heading into the postseason, with the 49ers having already wrapped up the NFC West title. But the 49ers made the plays that put them in position for the No. 2 seed in the NFC playoffs. None was bigger than Alex Smith finding Michael Crabtree for a 41-yard gain that set up Akers’ fourth field goal, from 39 yards out with 2:57 left, to give the 49ers the lead. Akers connected earlier from 53, 29 and 44 yards and set an NFL record with 42 field goals this season. “All our players and coaches, everybody is really happy for David’s success,” Harbaugh said. “Another great effort by him today.” While it was a long shot that they would reach the playoffs, the Seahawks will lament a few mistakes that cost them against San Francisco. None was bigger than a

Seattle seemed poised to go to halftime with a 14-3 lead, only to flub what was a momentum turning goalline sequence. After a lengthy review to see if Lynch had scored on a second-down run from the 4, Seattle’s third-and-goal play from the 1 was a complete disaster. With some players still in their stances, Jackson
was forced to scramble and was knocked out of bounds at the 1. Instead of risking a fourth-down attempt, Carroll settled for a 19-yard field goal from Steven Hauschka and a 10-3 lead. “I thought it was a false start penalty,” Seattle fullback Michael Robinson said. “Thought we heard a whistle. Even the defense stopped, thinking it was a false start penalty. Unfortu-
nate for us, fortunate for them. “It was on me. I should have just kept playing.” The play seemed to be a preview for Seattle’s offensive struggles in the second half. The Seahawks managed only 72 yards of offense, Jackson was just 5 of 11 for 51 yards and their only score came after Farwell’s play on special teams. Still, even being in that position with playoffs being
talked about in Week 16 was progress from the midseason mess Seattle appeared to be. “We had opportunities to win the game, but we didn’t make those plays when it came down to it,” Jackson said. “Obviously, we’ve got to be able to make those plays. We’ve got to be able to grow and mature enough to where we’re able to make those plays when it really counts.”
Notes: San Francisco won in Seattle for the first time since 2008. Seattle finished the season 4-4 at home. Seattle has two blocked punts in its past three games. Grant started in place of standout linebacker Patrick Willis, who was inactive with a hamstring injury. Lynch was the first back to top 100 yards against the 49ers since Green Bay’s Ryan Grant.
No. 14 Xavier tops Southern Illinois in Hawaii THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
HONOLULU — Southern Illinois will leave Hawaii empty-handed. The Salukis (3-8) dropped their third straight game Sunday, an 87-77 loss to No. 14 Xavier, and will depart from the Islands without a win. The Musketeers (9-3), led by 21 points from Tu Holloway, snapped their own three-game losing streak with the win in the
seventh-place game of the Diamond Head Classic. SIU coach Chris Lowery pointed at Holloway as the difference-maker in the game. “Tu Holloway is an NBA guy,” Lowery said. “That’s the difference between their club and our club. Their thinker is an NBA guy. He never wavered or got shook up and he ran the team.” Dantiel Daniels shot 7 of 8 from the field and made
all eight of his free throws to lead the Salukis with a game-high 22 points. He scored 13 of his 22 points in the second half. Mamadou Seck had 12 points with 10 rebounds, Kendal Brown-Surles hit three 3-pointers to finish with 12 points, and T.J. Lindsay added 11 for the Salukis. Holloway was feeling the Christmas spirit, so he sported green and white
shoes with red laces before a sparse, morning crowd on Christmas Day. The Musketeers won for the first time since Dec. 10, when they beat Cincinnati in a game cut short in the closing seconds by brawling and mayhem on the court. “That was as good a game as we played offensively all year,” Xavier coach Chris Mack said. “On the defense end, we
need to get back to being a team that keeps teams to a low field-goal percentage.” It was the first threegame losing streak for Xavier under Mack and first since the 2007-08 season. Mark Lyons had 17 points and 10 rebounds for the Musketeers (9-3). Andre Walker and Travis Taylor added 13 apiece for Xavier, which made 36 of 48
free throws. Walker also had 10 rebounds. The Salukis (3-8), losers of three in a row, were led by Dantiel Daniels with 22 points. “We really needed this one,” Lyons said. “We got the W. That’s what matters.” Southern Illinois drew to 68-64 at 8:45 after a 3-point play by Daniels, but an 8-1 run gave the Musketeers a comfortable cushion.

Coming off their first winning season in a decade, the Knicks added a defensive presence by signing Tyson Chandler away from the NBA champion Dallas Mavericks and have loftier expectations than they’ve seen in years. The original NBA schedule had them opening against Miami, but instead they got a chance to see if they’ve closed the gap against Boston.
“I think we wanted to come out and set the tone early,” Stoudemire said. “It’s a long year but this game was very important for us to get off to a great start.”
Some like Knicks Though the Celtics won all eight meetings last season, the Knicks have been listed some places as the favorites in the Atlantic Division, which the Celtics have ruled since their Big Three came together in
2007. “Everybody knows how optimism kicks in before the season starts, but then once reality sets in after the first month of the season, we’ll see,” Pierce said before the game. “But it’s definitely a possibility. I mean, they have the talent, but we have the talent, too.” But the Knicks will be without newcomer Baron Davis for a few weeks because of a herniated disc in his back, and now Shumpert is out, leaving
little depth in the backcourt. The Knicks led 49-32 with 7½ minutes left in the first half before the Celtics cut it to 62-52 at halftime. The first game since renovations began at Madison Square Garden included the usual cast of celebrities such as Alicia Keys, Chris Rock and John McEnroe, and some new confusion, as at least one Celtics player had to ask how to get to the court from the new visitors’ locker room.

“I have been to the Middle East, Africa, Europe, New Zealand and South America,” he said. Garcia had a full-ride scholarship to attend and wrestle at Portland State right out of high school but instead took an opportunity to start his own marketing company. He continued to operate his marketing business until he hit the road for a ministry in 2009. “I had a home, I was making real good money but I knew a piece was missing when I had an encounter with the Lord,” Garcia said. “I started walking closer
to Jesus and decided to travel the world. It has been amazing.” During his travels, Garcia spent time during a major earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand. Garcia’s ministry helped provide fresh water and repair buildings among other tasks. The former wrestler said he is taking a break right now and reflecting on what he wants to start doing. He is staying with his mother and stepfather, Jennifer and Glen Roggenbuck, and his little brother, Michael Roggenbuck, who
is a fifth grader at Hamilton Elementary School, preparing to be a little Roughrider, Garcia said. “He’s an amazing little man,” Garcia said about his brother. “I love him a lot.” There’s a lot of love, too, going around for this year’s wrestling programs, that are proving to be as exciting and tough as the past area wrestling teams.

Tough choices on 9/11 lawsuits Federal benefits available if day in court surrendered BY DAVID B. CARUSO THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK — More than 1,600 people who filed lawsuits claiming that their health was ruined by dust and smoke from the collapsed World Trade Center must decide by Jan. 2 whether to keep fighting in court or drop the litigation and apply for benefits from a government compensation fund. For some, the choice is fraught with risk. Federal lawmakers set aside $2.76 billion last winter for people who developed illnesses after spending time in the ash-choked disaster zone. But to be considered for a share of the aid, all potential applicants must dismiss any pending lawsuits by the deadline and give up their right to sue forever over 9/11 health problems. Anyone with a lawsuit still pending Jan. 3 is barred from the program for life. The government program is attractive because it spares the sick from having to prove that their illness is related to 9/11 and that someone other than the terrorists put them in harm’s way. But applicants won’t know for months, or even years, how much money they might eventually receive from the program. That means some people may give up their lawsuits and find out later that they only qualify for a modest payment.
Limited coverage Others face a deeper problem. People exposed to trade center dust have blamed it for hundreds of illnesses, but currently the fund only covers a limited number of ailments, including asthma, scarred lungs and other respira-
tory system problems. That list does not currently include any type of cancer, which scientists have yet to link to trade center toxins. But the very possibility that cancer could, someday, be covered has led some plaintiffs to drop their lawsuits anyway. “In a sense, I’ve weighed my options and rolled the dice believing that the country I helped is not going to let me down,” said former New York City police detective John Walcott, who retired after being diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia in 2003. He decided a few days before Christmas to drop his case, saying he had come to believe he would never get anything out of the legal system. “The court system was set up for attorneys to make a lot of money,” he said. He added that at age 47, he is tired of a court fight that had no end in sight. “I’m done with 9/11. I can’t go forward with my life and family and live in peace with this hanging over me.”
Tight spot The special master overseeing the compensation fund, Sheila Birnbaum, acknowledged that the deadline would put some people in a tight spot, especially if they have an illness that isn’t covered currently by the fund. “That is one of the dilemmas,” she said. Birnbaum noted, though, that the law gives her no wiggle room. Anyone who has a lawsuit active Jan. 3 will be disqualified from consideration, she said, even if their illness is later deemed to be covered. “It’s a hard decision that they

Firefighters make their way through the ruins of the World Trade Center Oct. 11, 2001. have to make,” she said. The lengthy application process for the fund began in October, and Birnbaum said she expected thousands to apply. She could not say how many might do so by the time the fund closes years from now. Lawyers who represent people with pending cases said they have been going over the pros and cons with their clients for several months, to see which option might suit them better. “It’s a complicated analysis,” said attorney Gregory Cannata, whose firm represents about 100 people, including laborers brought in to repair damaged buildings and cleaners who swept tons of dust from office suites. Cannata said that for the most part, his clients have decided to stick with their lawsuits, in part because of the possibility of a larger payout than they might receive under the government program.
Police officers, firefighters and city contractors who cleared away the 9/11 rubble make up only a small slice of the people facing the dilemma. Most of the more than 5,000 city workers who filed lawsuits claiming that the city had failed to protect them from the dust settled their cases in 2010, before the compensation fund was created. Walcott was one of a few who rejected the deal, worth more than $700 million. Under the law, people who settled previously will be allowed to apply for government benefits. Any award they receive will be reduced by whatever they got from the legal settlement.
sands more New Yorkers have become ill because of exposure to the dust. They will have to decide in the coming years whether to sue someone over their illness or try their luck in the government program. If too many people apply for aid from the compensation fund — including people with common illnesses that may, or may not, have anything to do with 9/11 toxins — the nearly $2.8 billion set aside by Congress may get exhausted quickly. Adding just 1,000 people with cancer to the program could eat up $1 billion, said Noah Kushlefsky, an attorney with the firm Kreindler & Kreindler. “The real question is, how many more cases are there out More decisions there?” Kushlefsky said. The tough decisions won’t end Enough, it seems, to keep both Jan. 2. the courts and the 9/11 fund In addition to people with legal administrators busy for some claims already pending, thou- time yet.
Iowa remarkably quiet for political season BY THOMAS BEAUMONT THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
DES MOINES, Iowa — It’s been a different presidential race in Iowa this year — quieter. Campaign headquarters have hardly been buzzing with activity, unlike the around-the-clock nature of past contests. Candidates have barely visited the state, compared with years when most all but moved here. And they have largely refrained from building the grassroots armies of yesteryear, in favor of more modest on-theground teams of paid staffers and volunteers. The final rush of campaigning here gets under way today, just a week before the Jan. 3 caucuses, and, to be sure, there will be a flurry of candidate appearances and get-out-the-vote efforts all week. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Lack of courtship
Republican presidential candidates, from left, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, former But that will belie the reality House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Texas Rep. Ron Paul and Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann prepare for their debate in of much of 2011, a year marked by Sioux City, Iowa, on Dec. 15. a less aggressive personal courtship of Iowans in a campaign that, instead, has largely gravitated around a series of 13 nationally televised debates, a crush of television ads and interviews on media outlets watched by many Republican primary voters, like Fox News Channel. “We just haven’t had as much face time,” Republican chairwoman Trudy Caviness in Wapello County said. “That’s why we’re so undecided.” Indeed, people here simply don’t know the Republican presidential candidates that well. And it’s a big reason why the contest in Iowa is so volatile and why the caucus outcome could end up being more representative of the mood of national Republicans than in past years when GOP activists here have gone it alone by launching an unlikely front-runner to the top of the field. With a week to go, the state of the race in Iowa generally mirrors the race from coast to coast. Polls show Newt Gingrich, the former House speaker, having lost ground and Texas Rep. Ron Paul having risen, with both still in contention with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney at the head of the pack. All the others competing in Iowa — Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bach-
mann and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum — are trailing. But, in a sign that the contest is anyone’s to win, most polls have shown most Republican caucusgoers undecided and willing to change their minds before the contest in a state where the vote typically breaks late in the campaign year.
Many reasons There are a slew of reasons why the Iowa campaign is a much more muted affair than in 2008 — marked by the iconic clash of Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton, who together employed almost 300 staff in Iowa and held blockbuster rallies. This year, there is no contested Democratic primary, given that President Barack Obama has no serious challenger. Only Republicans are competing, and those candidates are approaching the state differently, both visiting and hiring less. Also, like it did everywhere else, the race here started slowly — months later than usual — as a slew of GOP politicians weighed candidacies, only to abort White House bids. Long-time Republican activists here, who often joke that they like to meet the candidates sev-
eral times before deciding, have barely seen the candidates once, much less at all, and no campaign has more than 20 paid staff in the state. All that’s partly a consequence of how technology has changed both the political and media environments in recent years. Campaigns now can more precisely — and cheaply — target their pitches to voters from afar, sending personalized e-mails and YouTube video messages from the candidates to voters directly, and more campaign outreach is being handled by volunteers and through central national websites. And voters themselves now can go online and find information about the candidates without having to wait for the White House hopeful to show up in the town square. “Caucuses don’t exist in a vacuum. They’re not the same every time,” said John Stineman, a West Des Moines Republican activist who ran Steve Forbes 2000 Iowa campaign. “But everything else has changed. Why wouldn’t the caucuses change?” Part of the change has been driven by Romney’s approach to the state. The nominal GOP front-runner for most of the year, Romney has been far less aggressive in
cultivating support in Iowa than in his failed bid of 2008. He’s only spent 10 days in the state this year, compared with 77 days four years ago, in an attempt to lower expectations in the leadoff state where evangelical conservatives have harbored doubts about Romney in light of his Mormon faith and changed positions on some social issues. Paul, the Texas congressman, has been focused more on building a national following than being a one-state candidate. Gingrich only became a serious contender in the state a few weeks ago. And, until recently, he didn’t have the money or manpower to launch a full-scale Iowa campaign, meaning more sporadic visits and a smaller team. He’s struggled to reach all parts of the state more than once; it was just last week that he visited Ottumwa, seat of the county Caviness represents and a medium-size Iowa city uniquely situated in the southeast with its own small media market. Likewise, Perry has not been to Marshalltown, a central Iowa GOP hub about the same size as Ottumwa and home of the staterun veterans home. It would seem like a natural spot for Perry, a former Air Force officer who has sought veterans support. But he also hasn’t visited Fort
Dodge, also another mid-size Iowa city in north-central Iowa on the way to heavily Republican northwest Iowa.
Political strategy Those who have been struggling to gain traction — and who lack the money of better-funded, better-known rivals — are turning to old-fashioned retail campaigning in hopes of wooing voters the traditional way. Bachmann is in the midst of a bus tour that has her crisscrossing the state. And Santorum, who never has broken out of the back of the pack, is betting that a year of one-onone campaigning will pay off in the end. Barb Livingston is proof that, for all the changes, there’s still something to be said for the personal approach. She has struggled all year to find a candidate to back and is basing her decision on a personal impression she had — except that impression was established four years ago, riding around Marshall County with Romney. “When push comes to shove, I had a chance to meet him and travel around with,” said Livingston, a former Marshall County GOP chairwoman. “He’s someone personally I connected with.”

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Get together with friends, or plan a quiet day for you and your lover. Stick close to home and avoid impulsive decisions that can lead to unsettled situations. Share your thoughts and ideas with someone you want to spend more time with. 3 stars
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You will learn, experience and excel if you travel or take part in an event that interests you. Don’t let a lover or emotional matter stop you from being a participant. You will best any competition you take on if you are diligent. 2 stars
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Get out and visit friends or travel to a destination that promises a little adventure and the potential to meet someone special. Brainstorm with someone who has similar interests and wants to invest in a moneymaking venture. 3 stars
CANCER (June 21-July 22): You won’t do well with incompetence. Save your anger for something worth fighting for. Overspending on a luxury item will lead to accusations of frivolousness. If you are uncertain about something, don’t do it. 3 stars

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Love and romance are highlighted. Make your actions count. Don’t give in to a bully or someone trying to belittle you. Stand your ground, but don’t feel you have to prove a point by taking on responsibilities that don’t belong to you. 4 stars
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Carelessness will be your downfall. Avoid any situation that may lead to an argument. Concentrate on love and spend time with someone to whom you feel emotionally attached. A little discipline will help you stick to your budget. 5 stars

The Last Word in Astrology ❘

I doubt that your job is in jeopardy, and your union rep may be able to give you some peace of mind. If you have no union representation, keep it to yourself. I see nothing to be gained by blabbing about this to your co-workers.
Dear Abby: While driving the streets and highways, we communicate in many ways with our fellow commuters. We can wave, give a “thumbs up,” lay on the horn or, in slow traffic, shout out the window with curses or blessings. More often than not, a “single-finger salute” is flashed in anger, and that sometimes turns into road rage. Instead, we should drive the same way our lives should be lived — with compassion, consideration, attention and awareness of our fellow travelers. When we make mistakes, we should be repentant and signal an “I’m sorry.” Abby, I’m at a loss for a hand signal for “I’m sorry.” Any suggestions? Mild-Mannered Motorist in Virginia
Dear Abby: I work in an educational setting where the emphasis is on accountability, responsibility and being a good role model. I made a terrible decision two years ago and received a DUI while out of town. I’m still ashamed of my choices that night. I accepted all responsibility and completed the necessary requirements through the courts. However, since then I have dreaded someone at work finding out and losing the job I love. Do I talk to my HR department or confess to my supervisor? Or do I just keep it to myself and hope no one finds out? Still Paying the Price in Michigan

Dear Sad M-I-L: Be honest with him. Tell him that while you love him like a son, the present situation with your daughter is causing you so much emotional conflict that it’s making you physically ill. Explain that you will always be his friend, but that you must distance yourself emotionally somewhat until the divorce is final and he and your daughter have moved further on in their lives. Yours is not a happy situation to be in, and you have my sympathy, but your health must come first.

MONDAY, DECEMBER 26, 2011
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Someone from your past is likely to cause confusion for you if you take everything you hear to heart. You are best to stick close to home. Make alterations that will add to your comfort and emotional well-being. 3 stars CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Take advantage of any opportunity to get out and visit people you enjoy spending time with, but don’t overindulge or overdo. Moderation will play a key role in how well you get along with others. Compromise will pay off. 3 stars
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Do whatever feels good. Relax and enjoy a movie or a good book. Romance late in the day will ease any stress you’ve been feeling lately. Don’t let the past affect or influence a relationship that is running smoothly now. 2 stars
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Check out your options for year-end festivities. Spending time with friends you feel comfortable around and who are supportive regarding your current situation and future ventures is favored. Past partners will surface, and love is highlighted. 3 stars
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Shake things up. Visit friends or neighbors you enjoy spending time with and share a little festive cheer. Stick to what you know and avoid any impulsive decisions that may burden you with a responsibility you don’t have time for. 4 stars
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Good fortune can be yours if you focus on what needs to be done before the close of the year. Your options are mounting, and a couple of minor alterations in the way you do things will ensure that you advance in the near future. 4 stars
