Ex-Swain’s site to host mercantile Public store set to open this summer BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND — The Quimper Mercantile Co. will operate out of the location last occupied by Swain’s Outdoor. The hope is to open this summer, company representatives said. On Tuesday, Quimper Mercantile — known as QMC — finalized the agreement to lease 15,700 square feet of the space at 1121 Water St., which Swain’s Outdoor vacated in February 2010. The lease does not include the adjacent 2,000 square feet that was once occupied by Ace Hardware. Director of Operations Peter
Quinn said the lease could have been signed last week but was postponed by the weather. “This is one major step forward,” he said. “We are ready to go.” The terms of the lease with building owner Bill Massey were not disclosed.
Stock offering Earlier this month, QMC began its initial stock offering, and response has been strong so far, Quinn said. About $40,000 of stock has been sold at $100 a share, he said. The goal is to raise $950,000 to open the store, with $425,000 needed by May 1, or else the money will be returned to investors, Quinn said. QMC had a private meeting with local merchants Jan. 11 at which time the company clarified its mission, Quinn said. “We were able to tell people what we want to do,” he said. TURN

School districts bank on levies All E. Jefferson jurisdictions seek OKs from voters BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
CHARLIE BERMANT/PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Chimacum Schools Superintendent Craig Downs points to an antiquated boiler that would be replaced if the February levy passes.
PORT TOWNSEND — All four public school districts in East Jefferson County are placing levies on the Feb. 14 ballot to renovate facilities and support programs that are no longer funded by the state. “Our boiler should be a museum,” Chimacum Assistant Superintendent Art Clarke told a gathering at a Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce luncheon last week. “Our phone system is so old
that when we need parts, we need to go onto eBay to find them,” he added. Port Townsend, Quilcene and Brinnon schools also are seeking voter approval for levies. Ballots are scheduled to be mailed out Friday. Representatives of all four districts said approval of the ballot measures would not increase property taxes since they replace levies that expire this year. Port Townsend and Chimacum are asking for new capital levies to replace facilities, while Brinnon and Quilcene seek maintenance and operations levies that support school programs. School district borders do not overlap, so property owners are only subject to one levy. TURN
State court bounces case back to Jefferson BY PAUL GOTTLIEB PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
The state Court of Appeals has remanded a pay-or-appear case back to Jefferson County, saying defendant James M. Stone should have been provided with an attorney during fine-payment proceedings involving drug-possession and theft-related crimes. Stone was sentenced Sept. 28, 2001, to 105 days in jail and 12 months of community custody
and was ordered to pay $2,860 in fines, court costs and other legal financial obligations, including interest, after pleading guilty to second-degree theft and unlawful possession of a controlled substance, methamphetamine, according to court documents. He was subsequently sentenced in 2009 to 55 days for failing to make regular payments but was not explicitly told he could have a lawyer, a denial of his due-
process rights, the court ruled. The court vacated the sentences and remanded the case back to Jefferson County, which has until Feb. 3 to appeal the case to the state Supreme Court.
Return to court? If the case is not appealed, Stone will likely be asked to return to Superior Court to answer why he can’t pay the fines and court costs, which now likely
several thousand dollars, said his attorney, Thomas Weaver of Bremerton. The 2-1 court ruling will have no impact on similar pay-orappear programs in Clallam County, District Court 1 Judge Rick Porter of Port Angeles and District Court 2 Judge Erik Rohrer of Forks said Saturday in separate interviews.

courts are explicitly told they are entitled to attorneys and that if they cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided, the judges said.

A3 Briefly: Nation Obama speech takes aim at economic hope WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama promised the nation an economy that gives a shot to everyone and not just the rich during Tuesday night’s State of the Union address. Overshadowed for weeks by the fierce race of the Republicans seeking his job, for one night Obama had a grand stage to himself. Targeting anxiety about a slumping middle class, Obama called for the rich to pay more in taxes. Every proposal was underlined by the idea that hard work and responsibility still count. Obama renewed his call for his “Buffet Rule” — a principle that millionaires should not pay a lower tax rate than typical workers. While middle-income filers fall in the 15 percent or 25 percent bracket and millionaires face a 35 percent tax bracket, those who get their income from investments — not a paycheck — pay 15 percent.

WASHINGTON — The sun is bombarding Earth with radiation from the biggest solar storm in more than six years with more to come from the fast-moving eruption. The solar flare occurred at about 7 p.m. PST Sunday and will hit Earth with three different effects at three different times. The biggest issue is radiation, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Space Weather Prediction Center in Colorado. The radiation is mostly a concern for satellite disruptions and astronauts in space. It can cause communication problems for polar-traveling airplanes, said space weather center physicist Doug Biesecker. Radiation from Sunday’s flare

Levels are considered strong, but other storms have been more severe. There are two higher levels of radiation on NOAA’s storm scale — severe and extreme — Biesecker said. Still, this storm is the strongest for radiation since May 2005. The radiation — in the form of
NASA’s flight surgeons and solar experts examined the solar flare’s expected effects and decided that the six astronauts on the International Space Station do not have to do anything to protect themselves from the radiation, spokesman Rob Navias said. A solar eruption is followed by a one-two-three punch, said Antti Pulkkinen, a physicist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland and Catholic University. First comes electromagnetic radiation, followed by radiation in the form of protons. Then, finally the coronal mass ejection — the plasma from the sun itself — hits.
Briefly: World Greek euro debt talks reach impasse ZURICH — The war of words between Europe and private investors heated up Tuesday as talks to reduce Greece’s massive debt burden hit an impasse. While the finance ministers of the countries that use the euro as their currency adopted a tough stance on how much rescue money they would pump into the Greek economy, the head of the group that represents the country’s private creditors — banks and other investment firms — warned that the future of Europe was being threatened if a voluntary debt reduction deal over Greece was not agreed on. Charles Dallara, the managing director of the Institute of International Finance, warned that Europe is putting decades of progress at risk over the management of Greek debt-reduction talks, which stalled over the weekend. “European stability is at stake as well,” Dallara said.
Laws eased in Egypt CAIRO — Egypt’s military ruler Tuesday decreed a partial lifting of the nation’s hated emergency laws, an apparent attempt to ease criticism of his policies ahead of the first anniversary of the popular uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak.
Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi said in a televised address that the draconian laws, in force for more than three decades, would be lifted Tantawi effective today but would remain applicable to crimes committed by “thugs.” The military has often labeled organizers of anti-government demonstrations “thugs.”
Oil to be pumped GIGLIO, Italy — A barge carrying a crane and other equipment hitched itself to the toppled Costa Concordia on Tuesday, signaling the start of operations to remove a half-million gallons of fuel from the grounded cruise ship. Actual pumping of the oil isn’t expected to begin until Saturday, but teams from the Dutch shipwreck salvage firm Smit were working on the bow of the Concordia on Tuesday, and divers were to make underwater inspections to identify the precise locations of the fuel tanks. The Concordia ran aground and capsized off the Tuscan island of Giglio on Jan. 13 after the captain veered from his approved course.

Scorsese film ‘Hugo’ leads Oscar nominations with 11 THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Martin Scorsese’s Paris adventure “Hugo” leads the Academy Awards with 11 nominations, among them best picture and the latest director slot for the Oscarwinning filmmaker. Also nominated for best picture Tuesday: the silent film “The Artist”; the family drama “The Descendants”; the Sept. 11 tale “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close”; the Deep South drama “The Help”; the romantic fantasy “Midnight in Paris”; the sports tale “Moneyball”; the family chronicle “The Tree of Life”; and the World War I epic “War Horse.” “The Artist” ran second with 10 nominations, among them writing and directing nominations for French filmmaker Michel Hazanavicius, a best-actor honor
for Jean Dujardin and a supporting-actress slot for Berenice Bejo. Because of a rule change requiring films to receive a certain number of first-place votes, the best-picture field has only nine nominees rather than the 10 that were in the running the past two years. Dujardin, who won the Golden Globe for best actor in a musical or comedy as a silent-era star whose career goes kaput with the arrival of talking pictures, will be up against Globe dramatic actor winner George Clooney for “The Descendants.” Other best-actor contenders are Demian Bichir as an immigrant father in “A Better Life”; Gary Oldman as British spymaster George Smiley in “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”; and Brad Pitt as Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane in “Moneyball.”
Meryl Streep (as Margaret Thatcher in “The Iron Lady”) and Michelle Williams (as Marilyn Monroe in “My Week with Marilyn”) scored Oscar nominations for best actress. Two-time Oscar winner Streep padded her record as the mostnominated actress, raising her total to 17 nominations, five more than Katharine Hepburn and Jack Nicholson. Along with Streep and Williams, best-actress nominees are: Glenn Close as a 19th-century Irishwoman masquerading as a male butler in “Albert Nobbs”; Viola Davis as a black maid going public with tales of white Southern employers in “The Help”; and Rooney Mara as a traumatized, vengeful computer genius in “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.” The Oscars will be presented Feb. 26 in Los Angeles.

Nation: Bills to strengthen religion at memorials pass
Nation: White JFK hearse to join collection of cars
World: Record number of visitors to Antarctica
THE NORTH OREGON coast is bracing for another round of rain on its soggy soil, creating ripe conditions for landslides in a region that has endured a week of flood threats. Rivers rose Tuesday as a series of winter storms continued to blow through the region. Coastal rivers, including the Nehalem and Tillamook, are expected to reach or exceed their flood stages today. National Weather Service hydrologist Andy Bryant said if there is more rain than expected, moderate flooding could hit the northern coast, but it’s unlikely to match the flooding that struck the area last week.
THE HOUSE IN Washington, D.C., on Tuesday passed two bills endorsing the use of religious symbols at military memorials. One writes into law the propriety of displaying religious markers at war memorials while the other orders that the Interior Department add to the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C., a plaque with Franklin Roosevelt’s prayer to the nation on D-Day. The first bill was introduced by San Diego Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter in response to a 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals ruling a year ago that a mountaintop cross near La Jolla, Calif., in 1913 was unconstitutional.
THE MAN WHO WHO paid $176,000 for the white hearse used to transport President John F. Kennedy’s body following his assassination in Dallas in 1963 plans to include it in his collection of about 400 cars in Colorado. Stephen Tebo, a real estate developer from Boulder, bought the hearse that was being offered by Barrett-Jackson Auction Co. of Scottsdale, Ariz. He got the car with a bid of $160,000, plus a $16,000 buyer’s premium. The auction company said the Cadillac hearse carried Kennedy’s body as well as first lady Jacqueline Kennedy from Parkland Memorial Hospital to Air Force One.
THIS HAS BEEN the busiest summer in history for Antarctic expeditions, with dozens of skiers reaching the end of the Earth to mark the centennial of man’s first journey to the South Pole.

Some of this year’s visitors flew directly to the U.S. research station at the South Pole to join the commemoration of Roald Amundsen’s team from Norway becoming the first to reach the Pole in late 1911.

Point in Time homeless census Thursday Numbers aid agencies to get funds to help offer services BY LEAH LEACH PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Federal funds also are available for services for homeless veterans, Morgan said. “I’m hoping to get a very accurate count, as close as I can, of not only all the homeless, but homeless vets especially,” she said. Last week’s weather “drives home the point: Being homeless in Clallam County is dangerous at all times but life-threatening in the winter,” said Kathy Wahto, Serenity House executive director.
A count Thursday will aim to get an accurate snapshot of the number of homeless on the North Olympic Peninsula.

“We had people on the street doing counting. “We don’t have that luxury this year,” she said. On Thursday, staff members and any community members who volunteer will drop off questionnaires at shelters, food banks, schools, health departments and “all the places [homeless] go to and count there,” Morgan said.
Numbers counted The 2011 Clallam County count identified and surveyed 592 people, with 282 in sheltering and transitional programs; 65 living in cars, abandoned homes, parks or otherwise unsheltered; and 245 people who were at high risk of homelessness and temporarily couch-surfing. That number has been sharply reduced over the past five years, Wahto said. The homeless count in 2006 was 1,055, and 177 people were surveyed who were on the street, living in cars, tents, campgrounds or abandoned buildings.
That compares sharply with the situation in East Jefferson County, where Morgan is organizing the homeless census with few resources. OlyCAP has suffered ongoing funding cuts over the past few years and has only about 225 employees now, compared with more than 300 staff members five years ago. Morgan — property manager, facilities supervisor and program manager of housing services — is undertaking the homeless census with four or five oth- 139 in 2011 ers in the agency.

The drop in the number was after a spike documented in 2008, when 316 homeless were counted in Jefferson County, up from 250 in 2007. Before that, the number had slowly risen, with 187 counted in 2006 and 170 in 2005.

The estimated amount per $1,000 assessed value it would cost property owners is, in order from 2013 to 2018, 81 cents, 80 cents, 84 cents, 83 cents, 83 cents and 82 cents. The Port Townsend measure would generate $1,181,500 each year for a total of $4,726,000 over four years. The estimated amount per $1,000 assessed value it would cost property owners is 51 cents the first year and 58 cents each of the following years. Quilcene seeks a fouryear maintenance and operation levy that would collect $495,500 its first year, $510,365 the second year, $525,230 the third year and $540,095 the fourth year. The estimated amount per $1,000 assessed value it would cost property owners is, in order from 2012-2013 through 2015-2016, $1.46 the first year, $1.51 the second year, $1.55 the third

able community resource, and in order to maintain them, we will need to make some repairs.” Systems that need repair include roofs, siding and electrical, which the maintenance crew has kept operational “well beyond their years,” Downs said. Downs said the district waited to run the levy until this year in order to coincide with the expiration of the last levy so homeowners would not see a property tax increase. Downs was the chamber’s scheduled speaker, but Port Townsend Superintendent Gene Laes “invited myself” and also addressed the group.
Port Townsend “In 2006, the school district engaged a facilities survey and study and also
engaged a long-range planning committee,” Laes said. “The committee reported that three of the four facilities — at the time we had Mountain View — were outdated and need major repairs or upgrades. “The heating and mechanical systems in all of the facilities aside from Blue Heron [Middle School], which was the newest, were rated as poor or unsatisfactory.” Systems that needed repair or replacement then and as a result now include fire protection and sprinkler systems, piping and plumbing, carpets, doors and hardware. The facilities did not meet requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act, or ADA, and were in need of seismic upgrades. Laes said no action was taken on the report. “This is the first stage of a long-range plan,” Laes said. “Once we get the revenues from the levy, we are going to take care of the facilities we already have and determine what the configuration will be in the Port Townsend School District and then design a building to fit that configuration.” Both Chimacum and Port Townsend are using outdated phone systems,

Brinnon hopes the levy will support the purchase of textbooks and materials, unfunded special-education requirements, building maintenance and repairs, breakfast and lunch programs, preschool, utility and other operating expenses and non-high payments to neighboring high schools All four districts have posted levy information on their websites.

Consolidation of some aspects of repairs could cut some costs. While the two districts cannot actually share a phone system, they can get a better price by issuing a joint bid, Clarke said. The districts now share the Chimacum Bus Barn and have electronic routing and field trip systems that also are shared.

PT ukulele group to play a few bars WHEN SHE WAS in middle school, Samantha Goldblatt taught herself to play the ukulele by going online. The first song she learned â€” â€œCreepâ€? by Radiohead â€” was an unconventional choice of song, but the instrument turned out to be perfect for the singer. â€œItâ€™s kind of ironic,â€? she said. â€œI ended up moving to Hawaii.â€? A senior at Port Townsend High School, Samantha teaches the introductory class at Ukuleles Unite, a monthly gathering where people of all ages learn to play all kinds of music on the fourstring guitar. The strum-alongs have proved so popular, organizers are adding another event to the calendar: Ukulele Open Mic at The Upstage. â€œItâ€™s kind of like happy hour with ukuleles,â€? Bruce Cowan said. Cowan is a school music teacher and one of the founders of UU, which has, according to its newsletter, been â€œPromoting Esprit dâ€™Ukulele in Port Townsend and East Jefferson County since October.â€?

From left, Samantha Goldblatt teaches a chord to novice ukulele students, including Lizzie Gainer, Gwen Howard and Karen Erickson. She teaches the preferred strumming technique in Hawaii, using the fingers, not the thumb, in a cascading motion down the strings. The thumb of the other hand is pressed into service, countering the pressure of the fingers playing chords, which creates a clearer sound, she said. After mastering three chords â€” F, C and C7 â€” the new players learned two songs.
From young to older Students ranged from 10-year-old Lizzie Gainer of Chimacum, who brought a ukulele her aunt gave her after a trip to Hawaii, to Lee Erickson, who bought a travel model to play music with her grandchildren. It was Leeâ€™s grandmother, Ruth, who lived in Mount Vernon, who inspired her. Lee remembers Ruth playing â€œLittle Grass Shackâ€? and other tunes. â€œShe was either playing the bongos, the organ or the ukulele,â€? Erickson said. â€œShe did instill that musicality. I thought it would be fun to pick it up, but I never did.â€? Sheâ€™s the Nana now, Lee said, so this Christmas, she and granddaughter Saphira, who is 3, learned a few simple holiday songs on the ukulele and performed them at a family concert. Saphira was able to
hold her little fingers on the chords for â€œJingle Bellsâ€? and â€œSilent Night,â€? Lee said, and was â€œall over it.â€? â€œSheâ€™s bringing her ukulele up when sheâ€™s coming to visit in March,â€? Lee said. Lee and about a dozen other novices were in the introductory class, including Dennis Lenton, who said he came because he found a ukulele in a closet. Karen Erickson said she got her ukulele out of the closet, where it had stayed after her husband gave it to her as a Christmas present a year ago. A member of the Daughters of Norway, Karen said learning a new language â€” sheâ€™s taking Norwegian â€” and playing a musical instrument are two of the best ways to keep the mind active. â€œAnd itâ€™s easy to take with you,â€? she said of the ukulele. Portability is a big plus. Ukuleles Unite held its first flash mob Dec. 9, gathering at Haller Fountain and walking to the Undertown Coffee Shop, where they played â€œYou are My Sunshine.â€? Some of the strummers continued to the Better Living coffee shop, where they played â€œRudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,â€? then up to St. Mary Star of the Sea Catholic Church, where they entertained people for a good long while and taught each other some deeper mysteries of the instrument, according to the write-up

easier than a guitar to pick up if you havenâ€™t played in a long time. Thatâ€™s because the ukulele has nylon strings, not metal ones that require calluses to build up before you can play comfortably. On some of the less expensive models, the strings are basically fishing line, Samantha told her class, which ties in with the ukuleleâ€™s affinity with Hawaii. According to www. ukulelehunt.com, fourstringed guitars were first made in Honolulu in the 1880s by Portuguese woodworkers who had emigrated from Madeira. When she was a sophomore in high school, Samantha moved with her family to Maui, where she played in bands around Lahaina, taught ukulele lessons and sold ukuleles to tourists. In Hawaii, children learn to play the ukulele in fourth- and fifth-grade music class, she said. She learned on a concert ukulele and now plays a tenor uke, the third of four sizes.

SEQUIM â€” The state Department of Ecology has rescheduled two open houses about proposed changes in water management in the Dungeness River watershed. The meetings, which were originally set for two days last week, were postponed because of snowstorms. Now, they will be Monday and Tuesday. Ecology is hosting the open houses to discuss water supply issues in the watershed before the department releases a proposed water management rule for public comment in March. Both will be at the Guy Cole Center in Carrie Blake Park, 202 N. Blake Ave.
in Sequim. The schedules are: â– Monday open house â€” 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.; information stations open from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., when a presentation on the proposed water management rule will begin and be followed by a question-andanswer session. â– Tuesday open house â€” Noon to 3:30 p.m.; information stations open from noon to 1:30 p.m., when a presentation on the proposed rule will begin and be followed by a question-andanswer session.

Water demand During late summer and early fall, water demand is high for irrigation and lawn watering, but spawning fish also need water in the streams. Four fish species in the Dungeness are threatened because of insufficient stream flows and other factors degrading their habitat, Ecology said. â€œWe are hosting these open houses to help the

The open houses will provide a convenient time for the public to talk indepth on water supply issues with Ecologyâ€™s water managers and fish biologists.

Bill would eliminate death penalty
FLOOR & HOME
OLYMPIA â€” Lawmakers are considering a measure to abolish the death penalty, an effort that has failed to gain traction in the state in prior years. The bill, sponsored by Democratic Sen. Debbie Regala of Tacoma, is set to receive a public hearing today before the Senate Judiciary Committee. The last execution in Washington state was in September 2010, when Cal Coburn Brown died by lethal injection Sept. 10 for the 1991 murder of a Seattle-area woman. He was the first Washington inmate executed since 2001, after spending nearly 17 years on death row. Since 1904, 78 men have been put to death in Washington. Eight men are on death row at the state penitentiary.

Planned outage BEAVER â€” The Clallam County Public Utility District plans an electrical power outage in a West End community early Friday morning. The outage is planned between midnight and 6 a.m. in the Beaver area, including U.S. Highway 101 and connecting roads from Hilstrom Road to Bedrock Road. During the planned outage, crews will install new voltage regulators at the Tyee substation. For more information, phone the PUDâ€™s Forks office at 360-374-6201.
Mill to shutter SNOHOMISH â€” A lumber mill that has been in business for 70 years in Snohomish is closing in March, putting 50 people out of work. Seattle-Snohomish Mill owner Megan McMurray said the slow housing and construction industry was a major factor in the decision. The Daily Herald reported that the mill had cut back from a workforce of 160 in 2009. Peninsula Daily News and The Associated Press

PORT TOWNSEND â€” The debate about net pens has gone on for nearly a year, but the probability of installing such a facility in Jefferson County is slim, a county commissioner says. â€œYou look at Jefferson County and see how much shoreline we have, but there are very few places where you could put in a net pen,â€? said County Commissioner John Austin on Tuesday after a Monday meeting with representatives of the state Department of Ecology. The county submitted its proposed updated Shoreline Management Plan to the state Department of Ecology in November 2010.
Most OKâ€™d in February Ecology approved most of the plan in February 2011 â€” except for the countyâ€™s ban of all fin-fish aquaculture, which raises fish, such as salmon, in pens. Ecology ruled that the county did not have the authority to forbid net pens. Since that time, the county and state have worked toward a compromise. On Monday, the three commissioners and staff concerned with the matter met with five representa-
tives of Ecology and one researcher from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, or NOAA, to discuss the next steps. Ecology employees said they were only â€œthere to listenâ€? and that no decisions would be made on the spot. The NOAA researcher augmented Ecology staff, said Brian Lund of Ecology. â€œWe do not have a raft of experts on staff, so when we want to learn something, we reach out to consultants,â€? he said. â€œWe reach out to the Department of Fish and Wildlife, to NOAA and to other agencies to gain the experience we need to make these decisions. â€œYour role,â€? he told commissioners and county staff members, â€œis to provide the information to support your case, and then the determination is made whether the state will agree with you.â€?
â€˜Look statewideâ€™ Laurie Levander of Ecology said: â€œPart of Ecologyâ€™s mission is to look statewide to see how all these SMPs add up so we donâ€™t end up excluding business on a statewide basis.â€? Nothing was resolved after the three-hour meeting, though county Associate Planner Michelle McConnell said the discus-

Now legal, but where? Net pens are now legal in Jefferson County, though the county has not received a permit request since the early 1990s, McConnell said. According to current statute, net pens must be situated two miles from critical streams, which rules out the Port Hadlock area, Austin said. Discovery Bay does not fit into the stateâ€™s net pen qualifications created in 1986, and the area around Port Ludlow is residential, so net pens would not be permitted there. Dabob Bay is a wildlife area and is used for Naval training exercises. The area near the Port Townsend Paper Mill is in a barge path, as is the Hood Canal, which rules out those areas. â€œIt appeared to me that DOE is trying to identify
places in the county where net pens would be practical and safe, but there arenâ€™t many of those places,â€? Austin said. During the meeting, Ecology shook the foundation of the countyâ€™s argument when a representative said the department regretted granting a conditional ban of net pens to Whatcom County, one that prohibits commercial net pens for farming salmon but allows some types of net pens. The county was using the Whatcom ruling as a basis for its argument that the ban should be allowed. During the meeting, County Commissioner Phil Johnson said Ecology â€œis against the ban because you donâ€™t want us to set a precedentâ€? while raising questions about pollutants.
Environmental impact NOAAâ€™s Michael Rust said net pens in some cases have less impact on the environment than standard fishing operations because they use less power and are powered by solar energy. â€œNet pens have a smaller carbon footprint and are cheaper to offer than landbased fisheries,â€? he said. â€œAs far as waste products, the same goes in and out, and the feces of one animal becomes the food for another.â€?
On Tuesday, Austin compared the net pen argument to the renewal of a moratorium on sexually oriented businesses, which is renewed every six months with no permanent action taken. â€œWe probably wonâ€™t ever have a sexually oriented business, but if one opened in a place where it was detrimental to the community, it would have been irresponsible if we didnâ€™t have an intelligent way of controlling and regulating it,â€? he said. â€œWe may find that the best way to control net pens is through conditional-use permits.â€?

Park spokeswoman Patti Wold said an intensive search over the past week has turned up no signs. She said the park will begin scaling down its operation into a more limited search. Searchers hope the parties were able to walk out, so they plan to search remote areas of the park when weather permits.

Austin also raised questions about viruses, asking if diseases specific to the farmed salmon could harm local fish. Johnson, who has pushed for the net pen ban, said the prohibition has its basis in pollution prevention. â€œWe once thought that the ocean could handle any amount of [carbon dioxide], but now we have oceans that are full of acidic water,â€? he said.

Tsunami debris expected next winter A recent beach cleanup filled a 12-foot trailer 8 feet high and 6 feet long, with debris weighing less than a ton. And that was only normal beach debris, Wood said. “Some beaches may collect so much debris that there is no beach left,” he said.
BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — Along with rain and wind, next winter’s storms may begin to bring the bulk of tsunami debris to North Olympic Peninsula beaches. The main body of debris from the massive earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Japan last March is expected to begin to arrive on the Washington coast in late 2012 or early 2013, Nir Barnea, West Coast regional director for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Marine Debris Program, told more than 80 people Monday night. Some of the early, winddriven debris is thought to have already arrived on the Clallam County coast. That is expected to be confirmed Thursday, when a group from the Japanese consulate in Seattle will visit Port Angeles to view items found by Surfrider beach cleanup volunteers. In December, a large black float, thought to be from oyster farms on the coast of Sendai, Japan, was located in Neah Bay. Since the discovery was announced, many other
How to report debris
CHRIS TUCKER/PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Nir Barnea, right, West Coast regional director for NOAA’s Marine Debris Program, talks about how debris from the Japan tsunami is moving across the Pacific Ocean. coastal residents reported similar finds in November and December. Local governments have some time to plan for a possible inundation of materials on beaches, Barnea said. Of the 25 million tons of material thought to have washed away from the Japanese coast, only a fraction
will reach U.S. shores, he said. But no one knows just how much that is, he said. Most of the large items and rafts of debris have already been broken up by storms and are no longer visible in satellite imagery, Barnea said. Much of the debris will
become waterlogged and sink to the ocean floor. So no one knows exactly how much will arrive on beaches, Barnea said. Surfrider Foundation member Darryl Wood, who has been cleaning beaches since 1976, said the sheer volume of the problem may be overwhelming.
Anyone who finds “major items” at sea or on land that is suspected to have come from the Japan tsunami should email a photo of the item with a description and where and when it was found to firstname.lastname@example.org. The wreckage of two boats confirmed as being from the tsunami have been located, one having come from the Fukushima area, Barnea said. The boat from Fukushima has been tested for radiation. “Radiation levels were normal,” he said. Radiation leaks from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant didn’t occur until nearly two weeks after the wreckage had been pulled offshore, and any radiation that entered the ocean has been well-dissipated in ocean waters, he said.
Some of the debris may include human remains from more than 3,000 people still missing after the disaster, Barnea said. Such finds should be immediately reported to local law enforcement by phoning 9-1-1, he said. Some items that may be found could have personal importance to some Japanese people, Wood said. “We need to define what is valuable and how to store it,” he said. An additional presentation on tsunami debris will be held at 5 p.m. today at the University of Washington Olympic Natural Resources Center at 1455 S. Forks Ave. in Forks. The seminar is free and open to the public. The public discussion will focus on the risks posed by the tsunami debris and an update on planning in regard to the coordinated response of federal, state and local governments and tribes. For more information on the Forks presentation, phone Ellen Matheny, director of education and outreach at the center, at 360-3744556 or 206-919-5632, or email her at ematheny@ uw.edu.
Court: Judge did not credit 10 days of jail costs CONTINUED FROM A1 If payments are missed, the person is ordered to appear in court to explain why. Continued nonpayment can result in the issuance of an arrest warrant, with a person eventually serving jail time that he or she could avoid by being in the pay-or-appear program and paying court fines and costs on time. Jefferson County Prosecuting Attorney Scott Rosekrans said Monday that the Stone case was unusual and that he cannot recall any other similar case involving lack of counsel for pay-or-appear defendants. He said pay-or-appear defendants are told they are entitled to legal representation.
“We needed to do it in [the Stone] case, and we didn’t do it in that case,” Rosekrans said. “I agree with that part of the opinion.” But Weaver said Tuesday the case was not an anomaly.
Systemic problems “When I reviewed the case, I pulled up quite a few of the hearings on pay-orappear,” Weaver said. “I realized there were systemic problems with the pay-or-appeal calendar,” he added. “I believe they were routinely denying counsel to people they were putting in jail for violations.” Porter runs the pay-orappear programs for Clallam County’s District 1 Court and county Superior Court.
The program was a campaign issue when Porter won re-election in 2010. “We are doing exactly what the state [Court of Appeals] says we should be doing,” Porter said. “For us, it was actually a great decision because it validates everything we’ve been doing since I started the program.” Stone is homeless and now lives in Spokane, Weaver said. After Stone pleaded guilty to theft and drug charges, he was put on the county pay-or-appear program, under which he made payments for 29 consecutive months and fell behind before his arrest on a third bench warrant.
court did not orally advise Stone of a right to counsel or ask him whether he wished to have an attorney appointed,” Appeals Court Judge Marywave Van Deren said in the majority opinion, Van Deren added that the Superior Court judge also did not credit those 10 days of jail costs to his fines and other court costs, as it should have. “Stone argues that the Jefferson County policy of placing convicted felons on a pay-or-appear calendar requiring them to represent themselves violates fundamental due-process rights,” Van Deren said. “Under Stone’s circumstances, we agree.” The judgment criticized by the appeals court was Not given counsel signed by the late Theodore At his Superior Court Spearman, a visiting Supeenforcement hearing, “the rior Court judge from Kit-

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Wednesday, January 25, 2012 PAGE
The foibles of winter weather gossip THANK YOU FOR reading this. Sometimes I think that if you didn’t read this, no one would. But you do. I know because Pat you send me such wonderful Neal messages. It might be time to review the communications policy for a wilderness gossip column. Even the most significant expressions of human thought can appear confused if not downright scary when they are presented in a disorganized fashion. Remember, “kill” is spelled with two “L’s” and “U” is spelled Y-O-U.
Use a little more glue on those letters you clip out of the bass fishing magazines. Even the most heartfelt expressions can be difficult to read when they are in a jumble at the bottom of the envelope. Work on your scissors skills — that’s if they still let you have sharp objects. Even if they don’t and you are nothing but a glue-sniffing bass fisherman, just remember: Your opinion counts as much as the next guy’s. When leaving me a telephone message, please include your own phone number amid the cursing and heavy breathing, if you wish to have your call returned. I am not a clairvoyant. If I were, then it might have been possible for me to produce a more accurate long-range weather forecast of the viscous winter we are currently experiencing.
Some of the more uncharitable readers have recalled that this was the winter that I predicted would be wet, warm and mild. Now that the governor has declared the state of Washington an official disaster area with hundreds of thousands of homes without electricity and uncounted millions in property damage, it might be time to review my own winter weather prediction methodology. This is not an exact science, based as it is on the appearance of spiders in the fall, the thickness of the husk on an ear of corn, the amount of wax on a winter apple and the fat on a buck’s back. These observations are valuable weapons in the prognosticator’s arsenal that leave little margin for error. Still weather prediction errors
Peninsula Voices Golf resort Conflicts of interest in scientific research, in medicine, in finance, law, journalism, in public office and other positions of trust invariably stem from individuals compromising legal or customary standards in exchange for monetary rewards. Struggling to get his illstarred Pleasant Harbor Marina and Golf Resort off the ground, Garth Mann has agreed to pay Jefferson County $77 per hour to work up an environmental impact study — a responsibility that would customarily fall upon his own shoulders. But the county needs money, hence will do anything to get in, including a payoff to Mann in the form of an EIS that will undoubtedly be tailored to accommodate the needs of one over the necessities of the many. In the meantime, Garth will continue in his efforts to interest private investors as well as the U.S. government in his plans to bring an exclusive community of super-rich Americans and wealthy Chinese immigrants to the banks of Hood Canal in Brinnon. Both financiers and the immigration service have more-than-once said “no” to him. But the guy never stops trying. And, unabashed, our county commissioners con-
tinue to run interference. They’ve been doing so for a very long while. You think David, Phil and Johnny might have viewed the project for what it really is: an all-counts loser. But, like I already said, they see money in the bank today and taxes down the line tomorrow. Conflict of interest — phooey! Garth Mann’s their guy. Screw the public. Todd Wexman, Port Townsend We asked Garth Mann, president and CEO of The Statesman Group, which wants to built the Pleasant Harbor Marina and Golf Resort, for a response. Here it is: The county’s representatives examine the various professional consultants’ reports collaboratively with the county’s peer review consultant’s reports to determine that the content meets the required guidelines for the supplemental EIS under the rules of , and following the conditions for approval of the FEIS as stated by the Board of County Commissioners. The consultant’s reports are the result of the data that becomes the content of the SEIS. The consolidation of the reports into one large document, along with the attachments, are countyexamined to promulgate the
data on an hourly fee. The SEIS data is available to the public following scrutiny. The writer does not freelance the content of the reports. The writer’s job is to ensure the quality of the information as it is being recorded for reference ease by the public. Statesman Resorts personnel have not discussed the contents of the SEIS with the county commissioners. The reference to the representation of super-rich Americans or Chinese coming to Jefferson County is nonsense. Pleasant Harbor Resort is planned to provide over 2,000 direct and indirect
do occur. I blame the government. You have to shoot a buck before you can check the fat on their back. Here in Washington, we manage our game in a way that tries not to hurt anyone’s feelings. So we protect the varmints and leave the hunting season open half the year, then wonder why it’s so hard to get a deer. This year it took me all season to get a buck. By then it was the rutting season. The old buck had a swelled neck and an empty belly. The tips of his horns were broken off and big chunks of hair were ripped out of his hide from fighting. Even worse, there were two other bullets and a buckshot in his carcass. This guy had been through the war. No wonder there wasn’t a scrap of fat on him. As for the corn husks, heck,
we had such a dismal summer last year a lot of the corn didn’t get ripe. It was the same with the apples that flowered before it was warm enough for the bees to pollinate them. Still I should not have misread the spiders. The abundance of their webs is a sure indicator. But they spun their webs too early, and by the time I went to count them, the wind was blowing too hard. Given this prognosticator’s record, all I have to say about the rest of the winter is this: It’s not over yet.

Here’s someone who likes the snow LAST WEEK’S LOCAL snowfall, though despised by some, was a welcome sight to me. Before you form a lynch Seabury party or throw Blair Jr. rotten vegetables, I should add that I really don’t mind if it ever snows around our neck of the woods. As long as the white stuff falls in the mountains, I’m happy. While it is nice to see the snow in our neck of the woods every now and then, I wouldn’t wish the kind of winter I enjoy on anyone who doesn’t like ski-
ing, snowshoe hiking, sledding or riding a snowmobile. I’ll bet most of the people who enjoy those activities and live around here would agree with me. We live in what many describe as an ideal winter environment. It rarely snows or gets much below freezing in the winter, and if there were anything negative to be said about it, I’d argue we don’t get enough vitamin D. At the same time, it takes only a couple of hours to get to areas where winter means more than the occasional snowflake. My favorite spots are Paradise at Mount Rainier and Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park. When I’ve a little more time to spend getting there, I head toward White Pass and the

Tieton River valley beyond. I’ve a much better chance of finding sunshine and snow in the country around that part of the Cascade crest. So while I was among those who celebrated the lowland snows around here, I was far more delighted by what was happening in the mountains. While the white stuff piled up here, it was twice as deep at those places. The roads to Paradise and Hurricane Ridge were both closed last week because of heavy snows. By now, you’d sink in at least 2 feet of snow that wasn’t there before last week, and more is likely to fall. Up until last week, La Niña that was supposed to bring us a wetter- and colder-than-normal
winter was pretty much a bust. Many meteorologists said it had something to do with Arctic Oscillation, a condition that blocked severe Arctic storms from flowing south. Instead, Mother Nature dumped all of our mountain snow up north. Valdez, Alaska, got 27 feet of snow in the past week. That’s a lot of powder, even for Alaska. Perhaps the Oscillation has oscillated. On Jan. 15, 2011, the Waterhole Sno-Tel station at Hurricane Ridge recorded 67 inches of white stuff on the ground. Last week, before the big dump, that same location hosted a paltry 54 inches of snow. I’ve always maintained that the Cascades and Olympics don’t
really get their winters started until late January and early February. I once hiked to Royal Basin on Washington’s Birthday. There wasn’t a flake of snow on the ground, but by the time I hiked out a couple of days later, I waded through at least 18 inches of the stuff. So I’m glad for you winter’s over for a while down here. I’m even happier it’s just starting in the mountains.

Humane Society gets premium food, cat litter Business donates vittles, coordinates distribution with four other agencies PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” Animals at the Olympic Peninsula Humane Society are enjoying premium cat and dog food and cat litter thanks to Best Friend Nutrition owners Jim and Hope Williams. The Williamses personally donated 300 pounds of food and coordinated an effort in which four of their major distributors contributed an additional 4,000 pounds of food to the Humane Society.
Distributors who participated include Northpoint Trading Co., Independent Pet Supply, PFX Pet Supply and Animal Supply Corp. â€œWe are extremely grateful to Jim and Hope and their support of the Olympic Peninsula Humane Society,â€? said Mary Beth Wegener, executive director of Olympic Peninsula Humane Society. â€œThis is another example of the tremendous support we receive from our community as we work to provide for the animals in
our care.â€? Longtime animal rescue advocates, the Williamses established Best Friend Nutrition as a health food store for pets. Their current pet family, all rescues, includes three dogs, four cats, one parakeet and a beta fish. In 2010, they adopted Skye, a 9-year-old cairn terrier who was in poor physical condition when it arrived at the Humane Society. Today, after a remarkable recovery, Skye is healthy and thriving.

Cleated shoes perfect for snow HUNTER S. THOMPSON’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas provided me with some advice on golf shoes during last week’s snowstorm. Thompson’s protagonist, Raoul Duke, Michael expressed an Carman interest in acquiring them early on in his trip to Sin City. “Order some golf shoes,” Duke whispered. “Otherwise, we’ll never get out of this place alive.” I’m a beastly, bear-like man who lacks coordination. On my best days there are balance issues, and when snow and especially ice is added to the situation, the pratfalls commence. Thankfully, golf shoes, my own pair of Adidas AdiComfort 2’s in fact, were pressed into service as my “snow boots” as I traversed the walking portion of my commute to the Peninsula Daily News in an attempt to get to and from “alive.” The rubber cleats really helped my traction all week long, and the waterproofing kept my feet dry.
Crabby at Cedars I made a mistake in my column last week, writing that Sequim’s Cedars at Dungeness Golf Course’s signature “Crabby” hole was the course’s second hole, Of course, it is the layout’s third hole. I suppose I duffed that one because every time I’ve played the course I start thinking about Crabby midway through the first hole, skipping over No. 2 because I’m preoccupied with the meddlesome fairway bunker and Crabby guarding the front of the green on hole No. 3. My apologies. Let’s start fresh. No. 3 at Cedars is a par-5 that checks in at 490 yards from the tips. That fairway bunker I described comes into play right off the tee along the right-hand side of the hole. “I think that it is a great par 5 because it gives players the risk/ reward opportunity of hitting the green in two,” said Cedars Director of Golf/General Manager Bill Shea. “When the hole was first designed, it was a lot easier as the trees along the right-hand side of the hole were way smaller. Now players can’t cut off the angle, and have to play the first shot straight.” And you have to keep it inside the white stakes. Out of bounds lurks on both sides of the hole and straight through if you are a big hitter. The Crabby bunker itself is visually striking with cedar red volcanic cinders from Bend, Ore., brought in to add effect. It’s a nice, personalized touch that adds to the course. What I believe to be a yellow willow tree guards the back right of the green, which slopes back to front. “Interestingly, the guy who did the actual excavating 40 years ago on the crab bunker was here last week,” Shea said. “We have hired his son to make some alterations to the course, including a redesign of No. 10 green, and fairway bunkering on No. 12 fairway.”

Port Townsend’s Gabbi Hossack has a hard time holding onto the ball after being surrounded by all five North Kitsap players during an Olympic League game at Port Townsend High School.
North Kitsap controls PT Redskin girls fall in first game back from storms PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND — It was bad enough that the Port Townsend girls basketball team was rusty after a week off because of the snow and ice. But on the Redskins’ first game back, they had to take on the deeper and bigger North Kitsap Vikings in Olympic League action Monday night in a makeup game. The fourth-place Vikings (7-4, 8-5) beat the seventh-place Redskins (3-8, 7-8) 62-40. “We got into foul trouble and did not have the depth to stay with them,” Port Townsend
Preps coach Randy Maag said. “We did have some turnover problems in the second half, but we played pretty well in the first half.” Port Townsend stayed with the Vikings in the first half, leading 14-12 at the end of the first quarter and trailing only 23-19 at the break. North Kitsap, though, put the game away with a 39-21 advantage in the final two periods. Irina Lyons led the Redskins
nonleague game Monday night. Crescent led 17-15 at halftime but Sequim took over with an 11-2 third period to take a 15-point lead. The Loggers (1-1 in the North Olympic League and 4-7 overall) came back in the fourth quarter to make it close.

Redskin football may need home Nisqually League denies entrance for PT squad PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
The Port Townsend football team may have to look for a new home. The Nisqually League denied the Class 1A school’s application to join as a football-only member recently after Christmas break. Port Townsend Athletic Director Patrick Kane submitted an appeal to the West Central District for inclusion in the
1A Nisqually shortly thereafter and will make his case at an executive board meeting Thursday at South Kitsap High School. A ruling from the board is expected by the end of the meeting, Kane said. “I really don’t know [what will happen],” he said Tuesday afternoon. “I’m going to give [the executive board] the history of where we’ve been with football in the Nisqually League, our situation, why we need to be in the Nisqually for 1A football and go from there and hope it falls in our favor.” Port Townsend has been a football-only participant in the
1A Nisqually League the past four seasons. During that time, the rest of the school’s sports teams have competed in the 2A-dominated Olympic League as the lone 1A member. There had been considerable debate about Port Townsend joining the 1A Nisqually for all sports during the 2012-14 classification cycle. In the end, however, Port Townsend School District Superintendent Gene Laes chose to keep the school in the Olympic League to avoid increased travel costs and students’ time out of class. The 1A Nisqually will add two new members (Eatonville
and Bellevue Christian) and lose one (Orting) for the upcoming two-year cycle. That will put the league’s total football membership at an even number (8) minus Port Townsend’s inclusion. League athletic directors denied Port Townsend’s bid to join for 2012-14, claiming its addition would create scheduling issues with an odd number of teams. If the West Central District’s executive board agrees with the 1A Nisqually, then Port Townsend will be forced to look elsewhere to fill out its football schedule. TURN
Nadal vs. Federer in Aussie semis BY JOHN PYE THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
MELBOURNE, Australia — The intensity was vintage Rafael Nadal. On the stroke of midnight, he thrust his arms up and punched the air, sealing the victory that sets up the most anticipated semifinal at the Australian Open in quite some time. Roger Federer did his part to put this in place. In the previous match on Rod Laver Arena, he beat 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 in a quarterfinal marking his 1,000th tourlevel match. A Federer-Nadal semifinal had been looming since the draw for the season’s first major — the first time the pair have been in the same half at a Grand Slam tournament since 2005. Playing with a new racket and a heavily taped right knee, Nadal was at his demonstrative
best, rallying after losing the first set to beat Tomas Berdych 6-7 (5), 7-6 (6), 6-4, 6-3. Yelling “Vamos,” disputing line calls, pumping his arms after winning big points and bounding around like a hyperactive kid, Nadal ripped winner after winner against Berdych in a 4-hour, 16-minute display of pure intimidation. He said he was nervous in the first set — he’d lost in the quarterfinals two straight years — but by the third and fourth sets things had indeed changed. “The character on court, the way to win the points, the level is very positive, much, much better than the end of the season,” he said. “Semifinals is fantastic result for me.” Federer finished his match with one of his classic, onehanded backhands against Del THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Potro, one of only two men who have beaten him in a major final. Rafael Nadal celebrates during his quarterfinal win.

JOYCE — Derrick Findley swished in a 3-pointer with 7 seconds left to give the Loggers the nonleague victory Monday night. Crescent (9-5 overall) led most of the game but a fourth-quarter surge gave the Wolves a 41-39 lead with just seconds remaining. Kai Story of Crescent led everyone with 13 points while Findley added 10. Story also grabbed seven rebounds while teammate Joel Williams led on the boards with 10. “We played a real good game,” Crescent coach Darren Heaward said. “Kai Story had an outstanding game and all the kids worked really hard.” Christian Cruz and Rory Kalleppa both led the Wolves with nine points each. The Loggers next play at Clallam Bay in North Olympic League action Friday night.

Eleven players scored for Clallam Bay against the Roughriders with Kevin Hess leading the way with 12 points.

Three days of public mourning for JoePa THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — They stood outside for hours on a winter afternoon, waiting to pay their respects to the late Joe Paterno. The line snaked down a long block on the Penn State campus. Inside a campus spiritual center, the coach’s body lay in a closed, hardwood casket topped by a spray of white roses. About six feet away sat a stylized black-and-white picture of the man who became lovingly known on campus as “JoePa,” smiling and peering out through his trademark thick-rimmed
glasses. Three days of public mourning began Tuesday for a Penn State community already racked by months of turmoil. The 85-year-old Paterno — a Hall of Fame coach and the face of the university — died Sunday of lung cancer. He had been ousted just days before learning of his diagnosis in November, forced out of his job in the wake of child sex-abuse charges against a former assistant. “We’re not going to focus on the bad, we’re going to pull together and focus on the good,” said Brittany
Yingling, 23, of Altoona, donning a blue Penn State knit cap with “Paterno” in bold white letters emblazoned on the front. “He’s going to leave a lasting legacy on so many people.” And thousands showed up, lining a main campus artery for a chance to make the walk, single file, past Paterno’s casket, which had an “honor guard” of two Penn State players — one past and one present. Some mourners stopped for a moment of reflection, or to genuflect in the interfaith hall. Others fought back tears and sniffles. The only other

Mountain of wealth may cast echoes for Romney BY JACK GILLUM AND STEPHEN BRAUN THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney’s newly released tax returns represent an extraordinary accounting of the household finances and far-reaching corporate investments of one of the richest U.S. presidential candidates in generations, with an annual income that tops $20 million. How the details of Romney’s extensive wealth will play among Republican taxpayers, rival campaigns, the media and the American public only started to emerge Tuesday, as more than 500 pages from a 2010 tax return and a 2011 estimate spilled out both sig-
nificant and minor revelations about Romney’s scattered holdings, tax strategies and charitable donations. The returns outline both the dimensions of Romney’s finances and the complexity of the tactics used to reduce his effective tax rate close to the low 15 percent paid by many middle-class Americans. Among the new details contained in the documents are Romney’s continuing profits from the private equity firm he founded but no longer runs, a Swiss bank account closed just as Romney launched his White House run and new listings of investment funds that were set up in offshore locations from the Caribbean to Ireland and Luxembourg.
Advisers: Transparent Romney’s advisers stressed that he met all his federal tax obligations, provided maximum transparency and did not take advantage of “aggressive” strategies often used by the ultra-rich. Still, for millions of American taxpayers who are just beginning to grapple with their latest returns as tax season looms, Romney’s multimillion-dollar returns provide a window into an unfamiliar world. Tax law experts familiar with the formidable financial portfolios of investment

lion, put him among the wealthiest of American taxpayers. Romney’s campaign said Tuesday he followed all tax laws. At the same time, Romney gave nearly $3 million to charity — about half of that amount to the Mormon Church — which helped lower his effective tax rate to a modest 14 percent, according to records his campaign released Tuesday.
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
fund managers said Romney’s returns would at the very least reinforce the rising public issue of income inequity. “The average American has a hard time understanding their own twopage tax return let alone Gov. Romney’s 200-page return,” said Joseph Bankman, a Stanford University professor of business and law who has testified to Congress on tax issues. “What would jump out at anyone is the sheer amount of money and low tax rate he pays, as well as the enormous complexity of his financial transactions.” Romney paid about $3 million in federal income taxes in 2010, having earned more than seven times that from his investments. That income, $21.7 mil-
Top 0.006 percent Romney’s income puts him in the top 0.006 percent of Americans, based on the most recent Internal Revenue Service data, from 2009. That year, only 8,274 filers reported income above $10 million. He could be worth up to $250 million, based on previously released financial information.
$ Briefly . . . Extension for tax filers due to storm OLYMPIA — Gov. Chris Gregoire has asked the state Department of Revenue to grant tax return filing extensions to Washington businesses affected by the recent winter storm. “The heavy snowfall and freezing rain resulted in road conditions and power outages that clearly affected the ability of some businesses to file their state excise tax returns on time,” Gregoire said. “I have asked DOR to grant filing extensions to these businesses and to waive penalties for those unable to meet the deadline. “This request won’t impact the state’s tax collections. It merely pushes it back a bit to give our business owners who need it a much-needed break.” Revenue Director Brad Flaherty said businesses need to request the extension prior to today’s due date for monthly filers or the Tuesday due date for quarterly and annual filers. Businesses should phone the department at 800-647-7706 to request an extension. Penalty waivers must be requested in writing and can be submitted in the department’s electronic filing system or emailed to communications@dor. wa.gov.

Fun ’n’ Advice
PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
DEAR ABBY: I’m 18 years old. I play two competitive sports, maintain a 4.0 GPA, have good friends and will be attending the college of my dreams. Yet for some reason, I cannot get along with my parents. It seems like I can’t live up to their standards. We get into huge fights every day over insignificant things. My parents continually tell me they don’t think I will handle college very well because I “can’t get along with people.” But their lack of faith just frustrates me, and we get into more fights. In reality, the only people I don’t get along with are my parents. This is unsettling to me because next fall, I will be across the country from them, and I feel they will be happy that I’m gone. I’m at a loss as to what to do to control my temper and fix my relationship with my parents before I leave. Your advice would be appreciated. Climbing the Walls in Cleveland

Dear Abby: A few days ago, my mom told me that if it wasn’t for me, she and my dad would be divorced. She also said that the past few years with my dad have been terrible. I feel so guilty about this, knowing that I’m the reason my parents are unhappy. I barely slept the night my mom told me this, but actually, it all makes sense. Now I know why my parents yell at me for no reason and why I get in trouble for no reason. Abby, please help me. How do I tell my mom how it made me feel? Feels Guilty in Georgia Dear Feels Guilty: Your mother was wrong to say that you are the only reason she and your father have stayed married. They are together for reasons of their own that have little or nothing to do with you. You are not responsible for their unhappiness. Your parents appear to be under a lot of pressure right now, which may be why their tempers are frayed. Before discussing this with your mother, it might help to talk about what happened with another adult relative you trust. However, if there is no one else, clip this letter, show it to your mother and tell her you wrote it.

Dear Climbing the Walls: It’s possible that your parents may be suffering from separation anxiety. You, their child, are about to leave the nest, and they may be dealing with conflicting feelings of pride in your accomplishments and sadness that you are about to fly from the nest. It may not be a lack of faith in you. Also, they may be having second thoughts about how they can afford the tuition and other college expenses beyond possible financial aid. Whatever their reasons are, you need some tools to help you stay calm and not fly off the handle when your buttons are pushed — regardless of who is pressing them. Remember, the average person may become irritated, angry or frustrated several times a day. The key is to deal with these emotions effectively. Talk to your parents about your feelings and explore what’s going on. By focusing on what is triggering your negative emotions instead of reacting with an outburst, you can

Hendrickson Rd., Sequim, Washington, which is subject to that certain Deed of Trust dated 5, 2008, and recorded May 7, 2008, under Auditor’s File Number 2008-1220626, records of Clallam County, Washington, from NIKKI R. BEARDEN and BRYAN D. BEARDEN, wife and husband, Grantors, to OLYMPIC PENINSULA TITLE COMPANY, as Trustee, to secure an obligation in favor of FIRST FEDERAL SAVINGS AND LOAN ASSOCIATION OF PORT ANGELES as Beneficiar y. II. No action commenced by the Beneficiary of the Deed of Trust or the Beneficiary’s successor is now pending to seek satisfaction of the obligation in any court by reason of the Borrower’s or Grantor’s default on the obligation secured by the Deed of Trust. III. The defaults for which this foreclosure is made are as follows: Failure to pay when due the following amounts which are now in arrears: 9 monthly payments of $670.49 each for the months of March through November 2011, inclusive: $6,034.41; 8 late charges of $33.52 each for the months of March through October 2011, inclusive: $268.16; TOTAL MONTHLY PAYMENTS AND LATE CHARGES: $6,302.57 IV. The sum owing on the obligation secured by the Deed of Trust is: Principal of $75,045.41, together with interest as provided in the note or other instrument secured from the 9th day of January, 2011, and such other costs and fees as are due under the note or other instrument secured, and as are provided by statute. V. The above described real property will be sold to satisfy the expense of sale and the obligation secured by the Deed of Trust as provided by statute. The sale will be made without warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances on the 13th day of February, 2012. The defaults referred to in paragraph III must be cured by the 13th day of February, 2012 (11 days before the sale date), to cause a discontinuance of the sale. The sale will be discontinued and terminated if at any time on or before the 13th day of February, 2012 (11 days before the sale date), the defaults as set forth in paragraph III are cured and the Trustee’s fees and costs are paid. The sale may be terminated any time after the 13th day of February, 2012 (11 days before the sale date), and before the sale by the Borrower, the Grantor or the Grantor’s successor in interest, any guarantor, or the holder of any recorded junior lien or encumbrance paying the entire principal and interest secured by the Deed of Trust, plus costs, fees, and advances, if any, made pursuant to the terms of the obligation and/or Deed of Trust, and curing all other defaults. VI. A written Notice of Default was transmitted by the Beneficiary or Trustee to the Borrower and Grantor or the Grantor’s successor in interest at the following address: Bryan D. Bearden and Nikki R. Bearden, c/o W. Jeff Davis, Bell & Davis, PLLC, P.O. Box 510, Sequim, WA 98382; Resident(s) of Property Subject to Foreclosure Sale, 723 West Hendrickson Rd., Sequim, WA 98382; and Resident(s) of Property Subject to Foreclosure Sale, 725 West Hendrickson Rd., Sequim, WA 98382; by both first class and certified mail on the 7th day of October, 2011, proof of which is in the possession of the Trustee. A written Notice of Default was also posted in a conspicuous place on each of the premises located at 723 & 725 W. Hendrickson Rd., Sequim, Washington, on the 7th day of October, 2011, and the Trustee has possession of proof of such posting. VII. The Trustee whose name and address are set forth below will provide in writing to anyone requesting it, a statement of all costs and fees due at any time prior to the sale. VIII. The effect of the sale will be to deprive the Grantor and all those who hold by, through or under the Grantor of all their interest in the above described property. IX. Anyone having any objection to the sale on any grounds whatsoever will be afforded an opportunity to be heard as to those objections if they bring a lawsuit to restrain the sale pursuant to RCW 61.24.130. Failure to bring such a lawsuit may result in a waiver of any proper grounds for invalidating the Trustee’s sale. X. NOTICE TO OCCUPANTS OR TENANTS.
