Funding sought for air monitor Grant Street school would be location for the device BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT TOWNSEND — The Olympic Region Clean Air Agency has approved the idea of installing a new air-quality monitoring station at Grant Street Elementary School and is now considering how to fund it. The monitoring station intended for Grant Street, which would be the second in Port

Townsend, would cost about $20,000, and the cost of operation is estimated at about $10,000 a year, said Dan Nelson, spokesman for the Olympic Region Clean Air Agency, or ORCAA. “We are still trying to get funding for this,� he said. “It’s not a done deal.� Jefferson County Commissioner Phil Johnson said he was informed by the staff at ORCAA, of which he is board president,

that a monitoring station could be placed at Grant Street. “This is a step forward in the right direction,� Johnson said. “It will let us get accurate information about air quality.�

March 15 request The action follows a March 15 request from the Jefferson County Board of Health that ORCAA move the present monitor from Blue Heron Middle School at 3939 San Juan Ave. to either Grant Street Elementary School at 1637 Grant St. or Jefferson Healthcare hospital at 834 Sheridan Ave. The idea is to place the monitor more directly in line with the

Port Townsend Paper Corp. mill’s emissions and bring monitoring closer to the city’s most vulnerable populations. The request was made in light of the mill’s $55 million expansion of its biomass cogeneration facility, which is expected to be completed in 2013. It will generate 25 megawatts of electricity, about half of which will be used at the mill and the rest sold as renewable energy on the market. A coalition of environmental groups, including local PT AirWatchers, has fought the expansion of the biomass burning facility at both the Port Townsend mill and at Nippon Paper Industries

USA in Port Angeles. The $71 million Nippon biomass facility also is expected to be completed in 2013.

Blue Heron monitor to stay Johnson said Tuesday that the Blue Heron monitor would stay in place. It would work with the Grant Street monitor to provide thorough indication of local air quality, he said. “The original reason for monitoring the San Juan valley still exists because of all the wood smoke in that area, so we want to keep that going,� Johnson said.

PT panel to take up bag ban Petition drive garners almost 1,100 signatures BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS


Jude Rubin, left, and her daughter Hannah Bahls, dress up as bag monsters in support of a disposable plastic bag ban in Port Townsend on Saturday during the Earth Day weekend farmers market.

PORT TOWNSEND — A petition to mobilize support for a Port Townsend ban of plastic shopping bags now has the active support of more than 10 percent of city residents, petition sponsors say. “At the close of the Earth Day event on Saturday, we had gathered more than 1,087 signatures,� said Jude Rubin, who has gathered many of those signatures dressed as a “bag monster� in a costume made of 500 plastic bags. “In a town of only 9,000, that seems like pretty big news,� she added. The petition, directed to the Port Townsend City Council, seeks a ban on disposable plastic bags for environmental reasons. “We don’t need them, they’re hard to recycle, and many of them end up polluting the Sound and putting wildlife at risk,� the petition says. “Nothing we use for a few minutes should end up in the belly of a whale,� it continues. “Please ban disposable plastic shopping bags.� The Port Townsend City Council Special Projects Committee will discuss the ban at 4 p.m. Wednesday, May 9, in council chambers, 540 Water St. TURN



Police agree to do without pay raise BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT TOWNSEND — Police officers agreed to postpone a cost-of-living raise in a two-year labor contract. The city of Port Townsend and the Port Townsend Police Department ratified a labor agreement that maintains current salary and benefit levels but does not include a cost-of-living adjustment.

Police officers were due for a 4.3 percent adjustment, which they agreed to postpone, City Man- Timmons ager David Timmons said. “We are very proud that the police force is stepping up to help the community,� Timmons said of the cost-of-

living concession. “They recognize our situation.� Council members present at Monday’s meeting unanimously approved the agreement with Local 589 of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. Councilwoman Kris Nelson and Councilman Mark Welch were not present. The contract is a twoyear agreement with an option for a third year and

includes a 4.3 percent wage concession for 2012. In 2013, department employees could receive the 4.3 percent increase, or the city would base its increase on a wage market analysis, Timmons said.

Cuts through attrition The contract also states there will be no reduction in force except for attrition or retirement, and all other benefits remain the same,

with minor modifications. Police salaries have been raised 1 percent since 2009, Timmons said. Police Chief Conner Daily, who attended Monday’s special meeting, which lasted about seven minutes, said he did not know how pay in his department compared with other local departments. He said the force receives “a good salary and good benefits,� and that he hadn’t

lost any employees because of the salary offered. Daily, who sat in on but did not participate in the negotiations, said the process took several months and there were no serious disagreements, only some language that needed clarification.

Newsmakers Celebrity scoop ■ By The Associated Press

Hudson hears painful trial testimony THE TRIAL OF the man charged with murdering three of Jennifer Hudson’s family members resumed Tuesday with the Oscar winner shutting her eyes as a police officer described finding her dead family members. Hudson sat next to her fiance as prosecutors shifted their focus to presenting crime scene evidence in Hudson the case against her former brotherin-law, William Balfour. Hudson hung her head and shut her eyes as Chicago Police Sgt. David Dowling described finding her mother’s body sprawled in the living room with gunshot wounds through her back.

Hudson didn’t move as Dowling described finding her brother dead in his bed of a gunshot wound to the head. His sheets were pulled up as if he had been sleeping. Balfour was estranged from his wife, Hudson’s sister, at the time of the killings. He has pleaded not guilty to murdering Hudson’s mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew. With no surviving witnesses to the murders, prosecutors must offer overwhelming circumstantial evidence that Balfour committed the grisly crime Oct. 24, 2008. They are expected to introduce evidence in the next few days that includes cellphone records and security-camera footage that place Balfour in the area of the killings because he denies he was there. Another challenge will be tying Balfour to the alleged murder weapon, a silver and black .45-calibre handgun.

She wrote that she is “very unwell” and had been advised by her doctor to not hit the road after her “very serious breakdown between December and March.” In December, O’Connor announced her split from therapist Barry Herridge after 16 days of marriage. The Irish singer-songwriter is best-known for the early 1990s hit “Nothing Compares 2 U.” Her latest album — “How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?” — was released in February. The 45-year-old said she had planned the tour because of the album’s release but was “attempting to be stronger than I actually am.”

By The Associated Press

VALERI VASILYEV, 62, a standout Soviet Union defenseman who won two Olympic gold medals, has died. The cause was heart failure, kidney failure and pneumonia, his wife, Tatania, told the Russian daily Sovetsky Sport. Mr. Vasilyev was a mainstay of the Soviet national team when it won Olympic gold medals in 1972 and ’76 and eight International Ice Hockey Federation World Championships between 1970 and ’82. He also played on the national team when it had two of its biggest losses: the 1980 “Miracle on Ice” match that put the United States into the gold-medal game at the Lake Placid Olympics and the 1972 Summit Series against Canadian NHL players. In the later years of his career, Mr. Vasiliev was the Soviets’ captain, and he accepted the Canada Cup in 1981 after a stunning 8-1 victory in the tournament final in Montreal, where he helped shackle a Team Canada lineup that included Wayne Gretzky, Mike Bossy and Guy Lafleur. He was known as a strong, rugged, stay-at-home defenseman. He was tough in other ways. Mr. Vasiliev endured chest pains while helping


No the Soviets win the 1978 world championships in Prague but did not tell anyone. When he returned to Moscow, he had a cardiogram. “Yes, you have had a heart attack,” the doctors told him, he recalled in a 2009 interview with Sovetsky Sport.

_________ GEORGE RATHMANN, 84, who as founding CEO took Amgen Inc. from a small company with an unclear mission in a strange new field and helped turn it into the world’s largest biotech drugmaker, has died. Amgen, based in Thousand Oaks, Calif., announced Mr. Rathmann’s death Monday in a statement. Mr. Rathmann’s son, James, told The New York Times he died Sunday at his home in Palo Alto, Calif. Son Richard told the Los Angeles Times the cause was complications from pneumonia. Convinced in the 1970s that gene-splicing would become hugely important, Mr. Rathmann set out to make it so. As CEO of Amgen from 1980 to 1988, he developed

two blockbuster drugs that made the company’s name and have remained its bestsellers: Epogen for anemia and Neupogen for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. One of Mr. Rathmann’s chief accomplishments was finding the funds Amgen needed during its start-up years, according to a statement on the company’s website. Nicknamed the “Golden Throat” by friends who admired his persuasiveness, he secured venture capital, built revenue streams through partnerships and guided Amgen through its first public offerings.

A3 Briefly: Nation Romney eyes 5 more wins in primaries WASHINGTON — The suspense gone, Mitt Romney glided into five primaries Tuesday as the Republican presidential nominee-in-waiting, piling up convention delegates while commanding the spotlight to sharpen his appeal for the campaign against President Barack Obama. Romney was readying a prime-time primary night speech titled “A Better America Begins Today,” to be delivered in New Hamp- Romney shire, one of a dozen or so states expected to be battlegrounds in the fall. There were 209 delegates at stake Tuesday in primaries in New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Delaware, the first contests since Rick Santorum conceded the Republican race to Romney.

First BP oil spill arrest NEW ORLEANS — The Justice Department said Tuesday it filed the first criminal charges in the Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, accusing a former BP engineer of destroying evidence. Kurt Mix of Katy, Texas, was arrested on two counts of

obstruction of justice. The Justice Department said the 50-year-old Mix is accused of deleting a string of 200 text messages with a BP supervisor in October 2010 that involved BP information about failing efforts to cap the well. Today, a federal judge in New Orleans is expected to consider a motion to approve a $7.8 billion civil settlement between BP and a committee of plaintiffs. The BP-leased rig Deepwater Horizon exploded the night of April 20, 2010, killing 11 workers and setting off the nation’s worst offshore oil disaster.

Edwards aide on stand GREENSBORO, N.C. — The aide who helped John Edwards hide his pregnant mistress testified Tuesday that the former presidential candidate directed him to seek money from rich friends to provide the woman with a monthly allowance. Former aide Andrew Young took the witness stand for a second day at Edwards’ criminal trial. Edwards has pleaded not guilty to six criminal counts related to campaign finance violations involving nearly $1 million in secret payments. Young testified that Edwards directed him to start giving money to the mistress, Rielle Hunter, in May 2007 after she threatened to go to the media and expose the affair. Young said he suggested asking Rachel “Bunny” Mellon, an elderly heiress who already had given generously to Edwards’ campaign. The Associated Press

Briefly: World Satellites show Syria is still not abiding by truce GENEVA — Satellite imagery and other credible reports show that, despite its claims, Syria has failed to withdraw all of its heavy weapons from populated areas as required by a cease-fire deal, international envoy Kofi Annan’s spokesman Ahmad Fawzi said Tuesday. Annan, who was giving a speech in Sweden and briefing the U.N. Security Council in New York, called on the Syrian government to implement its commitments under the truce, Fawzi told reporters in Geneva. “This means withdrawal of all heavy armory from population centers and [sending them] back to the barracks. They are claiming that this has happened. Satellite imagery, however, and credible reports show that this has not fully happened,” Fawzi said. Annan also has become aware that U.N. cease-fire monitors were met with brief lulls in the violence when they entered conflict areas such as Homs and Hama in Syria, and that people who speak to them appeared to be in danger afterward. “When they [are there], the guns are silent. We have credible reports that when they leave, the [shellings] start again,” Fawzi said.

Cuban actors missing NEW YORK — In a case of life imitating art, two Cuban

actors have gone missing en route to their film’s premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival. Javier Nunez Florian and Analin de la Rua de la Torre disappeared in Miami during a layover last week. The film, “Una Noche,” premiered at Tribeca on Thursday. Where the 20-year-old actors went remains unknown, but they are assumed to have defected. A third actor, Dariel Arrechada, continued on to New York, where he has participated in the festival. He is scheduled to return to Cuba. “Una Noche” is about teenagers struggling in poverty who decide to defect to the United States. Director Lucy Mulloy shot the film in Cuba.

Murdoch testimony LONDON — News Corp. executive James Murdoch’s behind-the-scenes lobbying campaign spilled out into the public domain Tuesday, casting a harsh light on the British government’s Olympics czar. Murdoch was speaking before the media ethics inquiry set up in the wake of the country’s phone hacking scandal. Particularly damning was correspondence showing how Olympics head Jeremy Hunt secretly backed Murdoch’s multibillion-dollar bid for full control of satellite broadcaster British Sky Broadcasting Group PLC. As someone charged with deciding whether to refer the takeover deal to Britain’s competition authority, Hunt was meant to have been neutral. The Associated Press

If health overhaul fails, cuts will be inevitable Businesses will reduce benefits BY RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — If the Supreme Court strikes down President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, don’t look to government for what comes next. Employers and insurance companies will take charge. They’ll borrow some ideas from Obama’s health plan, ditch others and push even harder to cut costs. Experts say to expect: ■ Workers bearing more of their own medical costs as job coverage shifts to plans with higher deductibles. Traditional plans will lose ground to highdeductible ones with tax-free accounts for routine expenses, to which employers can contribute. ■ Smokers facing financial penalties if they don’t seriously try to quit. Workers with a weight problem and high cholesterol will get tagged as health risks and nudged into diet programs. ■ Some companies keeping the health care law’s most popular benefit — coverage for adult children until they turn 26. Others will cut it to save money. ■ Workers and family members being steered to hospitals and doctors that prove that they deliver quality care. These medical providers would earn part of their fees for keeping patients as healthy as possible, similar to the “accountable care organizations” in the health care law. ■ Some workers choosing their health plans from a private insurance exchange, another similarity to Obama’s law. They’ll get


President Barack Obama appears Tuesday at the University of North Carolina’s Dean E. Smith Center. fixed payments from their employers to choose from four levels of coverage: platinum, gold, silver and bronze. Those who pick rich benefits would pay more.

Problem of uninsured Business can’t and won’t take care of America’s 50 million uninsured. Republican proposals for replacing the health care law aren’t likely to solve that problem either because of the party’s opposition to raising taxes. The GOP alternative would have covered 3 million uninsured people, compared with more than 30 million under the president’s plan. After the collapse of Bill Clinton’s plan in the 1990s, policymakers shied away from health care legislation. Many expect a similar reluctance to set in if the Supreme Court invalidates Obama’s Affordable Care Act.

Obama sells loan program CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — President Barack Obama went after the college vote Tuesday, pitching cheaper student loans as he courted the age group where he has a decided advantage over Republican Mitt Romney. Obama told University of North Carolina students he understood their burden, saying he and the first lady didn’t pay off their student loans until eight years ago. Both Obama and Romney have expressed support for freezing current interest rates on loans for poorer and middle-class students. The Associated Press

Pet rehab helps transform four-legged abuse survivors THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES — Snarf was underweight with a heart murmur and a possible ulcer when he was rescued from a Kentucky puppy mill. He had hookworm, fleas and ticks, infections in his eyes and ears, red skin and patchy hair. The 10-year-old Japanese chin wasn’t house-trained. He hardly seemed like anyone’s idea of a pet. But thanks to several months of rehab, he is. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals set up a rehab center for Snarf and the other 117 dogs rescued in October from the puppy mill. The ASPCA is the only national animal welfare organization with a behavior team dedicated solely to rehabilitating cruelty and disaster victims. Last year, the anti-cruelty behavior team coordinated rehab for more than 1,200 cats and dogs. Many pets who end up in rehab are victims of abusive owners who have been arrested for dogfighting, hoarding or puppy mill violations. Other animals survive natural disasters. Snarf had been crated, isolated and used for breeding all his life

Quick Read


Snarf, a Japanese chin who spent 10 years in a puppy mill, wasn’t used to people. before he spent six months in rehab.

Taught social skills His medical conditions were treated, and he was taught how to socialize and play with humans and animals, and how to walk on a leash. Hoarded or mill dogs that have

been trapped in small spaces and denied human contact lack social skills and often fear sights, sounds and experiences, said Pamela Reid, an animal behaviorist and vice president of the ASPCA’s anti-cruelty behavior team. Reid’s behavior team watches how each dog reacts to pleasant greetings and unpleasant greetings. They watch as workers clip its nails, pull a burr from its fur, give it a toy and food, and take them away. They expose the dog to a toddler-size doll and a life-size dog mannequin, scold it and watch it interact with other dogs. Behaviorists look for eye contact, posture, the dog’s tail and ears, and what it does when it sees a person it knows. As for Snarf? Scott Franke and his wife, Andy Kyle, from New Albany, Ind., saw Snarf’s picture on the Kentucky shelter’s website. “When we went and saw him, it was love at first sight, and we had to have him,” Franke said. In his new home, Snarf loves to curl up on the floor close to the couple. “We hope to give him the happiest rest of his life we can,” Franke said.

A NEW CASE of mad cow disease has surfaced in a dairy cow in California, but the animal was not bound for the nation’s food supply and posed no danger, the Agriculture Department said Tuesday. John Clifford, the department’s chief veterinary officer, said the cow from central California did not enter the human food chain and that U.S. meat and dairy supplies are safe. It’s the fourth such cow discovered in the United States since the government began inspecting for the disease. “There is really no cause for alarm here with regard to this animal,” Clifford told reporters at a news conference.

They did not release the children’s names. The couple requested privacy and said they would release further details at a later date.

INSPIRED BY A Hollywood western, a Spanish dating association is trying to slow a population drain from the country’s beleaguered central villages, introducing bachelors to women bused in from the big city of Madrid. Candeleda, a town of 6,000, hosted a weekend fiesta to welcome 68 women for a meet-and-greet with the village’s single men. The association, Asocamu, credits the 1951 movie “Westward the Women,” starring Robert Taylor and Denise Darcel, as its inspiration.

Model-car firm eyes Forks patrol vehicle Bags: Ban ordinances BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

FORKS — A toy-car company wants to recreate the Forks Police Department’s Ford Crown Victoria police cruisers, but the Forks City Council isn’t so sure about the deal. The Forks City Council put a hold on a request from GreenLight Collectibles, a model-car company that sells “matchbox”-size model cars, to recreate the Forks police cars in a 1:64-scale die-cast model. The draft agreement doesn’t mention compensation to the city for the use of the image, nor is it made clear how many cars would be made or whether they would be made available to local vendors, said Rod Fleck, Forks city attorney. The council had a lot of questions about the deal and asked Fleck to look into

the contract. It was unclear at first as to why Forks was selected, Fleck said. “It probably has everything to do with Twilight,” he said, referring to the series of novels penned by Stephenie Meyer and set in Forks and movies about the adventures of a mortal girl and her vampire swain.

Hollywood Series GreenLight Collectibles sells a Hollywood Series collection of movie cars that includes vehicles from movies such as “The Fast and the Furious,” “NCIS,” “Smokey and the Bandit” and “Blues Brothers.” GreenLight Collectibles owns the legal rights for Twilight cars and plans to produce both the 1963 Chevy truck driven by main character Bella Swan and the movie version of the

More than just

Forks patrol car, GreenLight founder Kevin Davey said Tuesday. In the Twilight saga, Swan’s father is the Forks chief of police, and his police car is both mentioned in the books and shown in the movie. The real Forks Police Department cruisers are white with blue markings, while the car used in the films is blue with silver and white markings. GreenLight also has a line of model police cruisers called Hot Pursuit and chooses a variety of U.S. cities to recreate police vehicles.

Hot Pursuit The real Forks police car would be part of the Hot Pursuit line, while the movie version would be part of the Hollywood Series, Davey said.

Attorney to make bid for judgeship BY PAUL GOTTLIEB PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — Attorney Curtis Johnson is the third candidate to announce his intention to run for the Clallam County Superior Court vacancy that will be created by Judge Ken Williams’ retirement. Johnson, 58, a lifelong Port Angeles resident who announced his candidacy earlier this week, will run against Forks District 2 Judge Eric Rohrer, 54, and Clallam County Hearings Examiner Chris Melly, 60, of Port Angeles in the Aug. 7 primary. If one candidate among three or more candidates in the primary wins more than 50 percent of the vote, that candidate advances to the Nov. 6 general election as the only name on the general election ballot. The filing period for candidates is May 14-18. “I think I have the most

experience in terms of length of practice and criminal and civil trial experience,� Johnson said Johnson Tuesday. Williams, 65, whose salary is $148,000 a year, is retiring at the end of this year after five terms on the bench. Incumbent county Superior Court Judges S. Brooke Taylor and George L. Wood have said they intend to run for re-election. Neither had announced opposition as of early Tuesday afternoon. Johnson, a 1971 Port Angeles High School graduate, started his legal career in Port Angeles in 1978 as an associate in the law firm started by Williams and by Johnson’s father, Gerald Johnson. He has spent 34 years in general law practice trying

civil and criminal cases and was a pro tem Clallam County District Court judge for 19 years until 2008. Johnson also has been an approved counsel for insurance companies in accident litigation. Since 1994, he has been a Superior Court arbitrator with statutory authority to award up to $50,000 in damages in civil suits. “I have not ever been reversed on any cases,� he said. “My rulings, as far as I know, have held up.� He and his wife, Nancy, have two adult daughters and a 14-year-old daughter who attends Stevens Middle School. Superior Court judges are paid $148,832 annually, a cost equally split by the state and Clallam County.


PORT ANGELES — City Manager Kent Myers has selected Byron Olson, Sunnyside deputy city manager and chief financial officer, to serve as the city of Port Angeles’ interim finance director for up to six months beginning May 17. Olson, 60, said in an interview Tuesday that he is “98 percent� certain he will apply for the permanent finance director position vacated March 15 after city Finance Director Yvonne Ziomkowski was fired. During his tenure, Olson said he expects to review with other top city officials the city cash-out policy that led to Ziomkowski’s termination “to do what we can do to make sure the rules and regulations regarding that are explicitly clear to everyone involved.� Olson said he will be paid $50 an hour for up to six months, or up to $48,000 at 40 hours a week, but added that he expects a new finance director to be hired before six months have passed and anticipates that a new city manager will be hired first to replace Myers. Myers’ last day is Tuesday before he leaves to

become city manager of Fredericksburg, Texas. The City Council on April 17 tapped city Fire Chief Olson D a n McKeen to fill Myers’ position on an interim basis. Olson, 60, of Prosser, has a sister-in-law in Victoria and friends in Gig Harbor, and has visited Port Angeles and Sequim to golf, he said. He and his wife, Phillis, have been married 18 years and have two adult children.

Permanent post “I most likely would want to be a candidate for the permanent position,� Olson said. “I would say that I am probably 98 percent certain that I would apply.� Myers said Olson’s name was referred to the city by Issaquah-based Prothman Co., an executive search firm the City Council hired April 17 for $17,500 plus expenses to find qualified applicants to permanently replace Myers. Prothman will be paid an as-yet-undetermined additional fee for referring

Olson to the city, Myers said. The City Council has decided a professional recruiter expected to cost $15,000 plus expenses also would be hired to find a permanent replacement for Ziomkowski, a 24-year city employee. Myers fired her March 15 for violating city policy by taking $28,862 in vacation and sick-leave cashouts that covered three years. The Kitsap County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office did not file charges recommended by the State Patrol against Ziomkowski, saying a state Auditor’s Office report determined the city’s “unclear policies and inadequate controls� resulted in possible incorrect payments, and that no employees intentionally misappropriated money or intentionally did anything wrong. Ten other employees since 2003 also received cash-outs that exceeded city policy. Overpayments were approved by a supervisor or possibly were a result of payroll error, city staff have said.

Gorilla sanctuary topic of two talks this week Garbe, RwandaNOW director and Seattle-based lawyer, to present BY DIANE URBANI DE LA PAZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

SEQUIM — Dr. Jode Garbe, who divides her time between Seattle and Rwanda, is on the North Olympic Peninsula for two presentations this week.

Proposed is a $12 million project of 30,000 to 35,000 square feet on West Cedar Street on land the city acquired late last year to house police and all city offices under one roof. The council has placed a one-tenth-of-1 percent sales tax increase on the Aug. 7 ballot to raise revenue for a new Sequim police station. City Manager Steve Burkett said $240,000 in additional sales tax revenue certainly would help the city in building a new police station as part of the project, and all under one roof. Burkett has said the city now rents additional space for police and the public works, planning and building departments in two different locations, costing the city about $200,000 a year that could be going toward a mortgage payment for a new civic center. The city owns the existing City Hall at 152 W. Cedar St., and the council most recently approved purchasing about 22,000 square feet of land east of the building to North

SEQUIM — In an effort to craft a police and City Hall civic center proposal that voters will support, the City Council asked project planners to write into the council’s vision the importance of being fiscally responsible on the proposal. “We have to have a convincing proposal for the entire civic center,” said Mayor Ken Hays. “We want to make sure we are not building a Taj Mahal.” The council took no action on the draft of its vision and goals for a civic center facility Monday night. The council will meet with Rich Murakami — Murakami, a partner in the Seattle architecture firm Arai Jackson Ellison Murakami, is the city’s consultant on the proposed project — at its next meeting at 6 p.m. Monday, May 14, in its chambers at Sequim Transit Center, 190 W. Cedar St., said Hays after the meeting. It will then consider final approval of the project vision and goals, Hays said, and will schedule a work session before then to discuss it. The council is in the preliminary architectural programming phase of the civic center project, “and we want to inform the public on the public safety tax,” Hays said.

‘Bitty Buddy’ makes good: Elk of Year Lodge member is 50th recipient of annual award WHEN YOU’RE THE youngest of six children, you never outgrow your childhood nickname. But when Conrad Oien, 55, of Port Townsend was named Elk of the Year by the Port Townsend Elks Lodge last Saturday, he still didn’t expect his brother Ron and sister Lois to stand up and lead family members in chanting, “Go, Bitty Buddy!� “That was something they called me from a long time ago,� Conrad said. Ron Oien and wife Sonya Oien, who live in Brinnon, and Lois Horn of Seattle were among family and friends who came to see Conrad honored for his contributions to the Elks and the community. The award night included dinner, wine, speeches, gifts and, of course, a few “Bitty Buddy� stories, including this one from Ron about an incident at Badger Lake.

Breaking the ice

Wine event took off The Port Townsend Elks Lodge started holding a wine-tasting and auction to raise money for scholarships 15 years ago, lodge ruler Ken Brink said. But it wasn’t until Conrad Oien, with his contacts in the industry, got involved two years later that the event really took off. “In those 13 years, we’ve given out $71,700 in local scholarships,� Brink said. “Another $50,400 has come back to our students from the state [Elks]. “To show how important the wine-tasting is, before it started, we gave $250 a year in scholarships. “This year, we’re giving $11,000.� Brink said Oien brought in 25 wineries, all of which donated wine and gifts for the auction, which has grown into one of the most popular events the lodge holds. Gifts to Oien on Saturday included a case of “twobuck chuck� wine and a check from the lodge, which he intends to use for one of his hobbies, photography, fishing or golf.

“Eating and drinking are my hobby,� Oien said. Oien credited Brink’s constant badgering as the reason he joined the Elks Lodge nine years ago. Brink also recruited him for Kiwanis International, Oien said, which he joined in July 2005 — and by 2006 was president. Through Kiwanis, Oien helped raise more than $15,000 for a surgical implant program in Africa, Brink said, and helped build a wing of a hospital in Tanzania, which Oien visited last summer. He also expanded the Christmas gift program for foster children, which serves 200 people, to cover students’ fees when school starts. To raise money, Oien organized bar stool bingo, Brink said, and a winemakers’ dinner that raised thousands of dollars for the foster kids and also benefited the Edensaw Cancer Fund. Oien said that being in the Elks and Kiwanis provides a way for him to give back to the community and be part of working for the greater good, something that living in a big city might not have given him the opportunity to do. He is the 50th member of BPOE Lodge 317 to be

named Elk of the Year, said program emcee Mel Mefford. Mefford, who was Elk of the Year in 1977, listed the previous award recipients starting in 1962. Mefford said the Port Townsend lodge is one of a few in the country to have a dinner for the honoree instead of simply handing out a plaque during a meeting. Mefford also noted that only 16 recipients of the lodge’s Elk of the Year are still living. “When you look at the odds, the odds aren’t too good,� he joked.

Flowers to recipients Linda Hinds presented flowers to the former recipients and spouses who were present, including John Buehler, Rich Stapf, Sylvia Adams, Loren Krieger, Ken and Helen Brink, Al and Kathie Ryan, and Leonard and Billie Fullerton. Mefford also gave a plaque honoring the lodge’s volunteers to Ken Brink, who accepted it on their behalf, and honored Greg Jacobsen, a 28-year member, for his years of service. Also recognized was Oien’s wife, Karen, aka the

Other family members at Saturday’s dinner were: daughter Bonnie L’Heureux and her husband, Michael L’Heureux, of Port Hadlock; Karen’s mother, Jan Gronseth of Port Townsend; and Karen’s brother, Tim Gronseth. Jim Franklin, who has been an Elk for more than 60 years, said he has known Conrad Oien for six years and had never met anyone as motivated and dedicated to the causes he took on. Franklin also noted Oien is a people person: Invited to the Oiens’ house for a barbecue, he arrived to find it wasn’t just a few couples but the annual block party that the Oiens and their neighbors on Thomas Street throw. Franklin quoted Oien, who once wrote that he believed the purpose of life is to be a growing and contributing human being. As the youngest member of the family, his brother was spoiled rotten, Ron


said, but grew up to be a fine person everyone is proud of. Although to him, the guest of honor will always be the little brother he carried around on his shoulders. “He was everybody’s Bitty Buddy,� Ron said. “Everyone loved him.� This year’s wine-tasting and auction for scholarships is Saturday, May 5, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Port Townsend Elks Lodge, 555 Otto St. in the Glen Cove area off state Highway 20 on the outskirts of Port Townsend. The cost is $15. The public is welcome to attend.

Second-oldest of the Oien sons, Ron is 15 years older than Conrad and used to carry his little brother around on his shoulders. The family lived in Spokane and owned recreational property on Badger Lake. One winter when Conrad was 3, the family packed up and went out to the lake to go sledding and ice-skating. Deciding to walk down to the lake to see if the ice was thick enough for skating, Ron lifted Conrad, who was zipped into a red snowsuit and wearing little white ice skates, onto his shoulders. When they got to the lake, Ron stepped out onto the ice. “I took two steps and broke through,� he said. “We both went underwater.� They weren’t in deep, however, so Ron managed to get them both to dry land. With Conrad on his shoulders, he trudged up the slope to the family’s trailer, a distance of about a quarter-mile. Every few steps, Conrad would say, “Ron, I’m tode,� and Ron would reply, “I’m cold, too.� When they got to the trailer, Ron lowered Conrad to the ground, where he stood frozen, his arms sticking out in front of him. “We took him inside and thawed him out,� Ron said. Conrad survived childhood, attended Spokane’s Rogers High School, where he played in the marching band, and graduated in 1975. After attending technical school, he drove a truck for a wine and beer

Death and Memorial Notice JOHN WILLIAM PURVIS JR. December 8, 1926 April 19, 2012 John William Purvis was born in Ripley, Mississippi, to John and Maybelle Purvis, and spent much of his youth in Depression-era Pickwick, Oxford, and Jackson, Mississippi. Upon graduating from Central High School in Jackson, John served in the U.S. Navy for the final year of World War II, thereafter graduating from Ole Miss with a Bachelor of Science in business and lettering four years in golf. From 1948, John worked for more than 50 years in the mid-South insurance and surety bond business, including time as branch manager of the Memphis, Tennes-

see, office of the Fidelity and Deposit Company and as a vice president at Brown and Associates. During his long career, he established many lifelong professional and personal friendships and became recognized as one of the most respected agents and financial advisers nationally. Over many years, John pursued his love of both fishing and golf, at golf winning the MS Amateur as well as the Memphis Pub Links. In recognition of his lifelong contribution to local-area golf, John was inducted into the Memphis Park Commission’s Amateur Sports Hall of Fame in 1995. In 1953, John married the greatest love of his life, the beautiful Serita Tucker of Jackson. They raised a family in Memphis and remained together until her passing

in 1991. Very active late in life, John worked part time as a consultant and financial adviser. He also picked up a pool cue and a colorful nickname after 18 holes of golf became a little much for him. In 2009, John finally retired and moved to Sequim, where he resided at The Lodge of Sherwood Village and developed the last of his many friendships, retained his great sense of humor and still, on occasion, enjoyed a cigar. John is survived by his daughter, Shannon; two sons, John and Jay; five grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren. Visitation will be at Forest Hill East Funeral Home, 2440 Whitten Road in Memphis, on Friday, April 27, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., with services at 1 p.m.

Ruth worked in electronics, and she retired as a secretary in the electronic department at United Medical Laboratories in Portland. Loving the Sequim area, they bought a piece of property at Diamond Point and lived there until her husband’s health forced them to move closer to town and medical care. Ruth had many interests in life. She loved to

June 21, 1930 February 5, 2012 R. Parker Gowing, 81, died February 5, 2012, at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle from head injuries suffered in a traffic accident three days earlier in Bellevue, Washington. He was born in Louisville, Kentucky, to the late Avis (Dubia) and Earl P. Gowing; his parents had grown up in the Chicago area, where there were strong family connections, and he was baptized at the Holy Name Cathedral in Chicago when he was just a few weeks old. Mr. Gowing attended schools in Louisville, first at St. James parochial school, then Rugby University School. In 1952, he graduated from Princeton University with an AB in economics. He earned a master’s in business administration from Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio, and a master’s in public health from Tulane University in New Orleans. His professional life included several years as a caseworker in Cincinnati and California. While studying for a doctorate in business administration, for which he completed all but the dissertation at Arizona State University and Texas Tech University, he taught business statistics, finance and computer programming at Eastern Kentucky University, San Diego State University and the University of Notre Dame. During this time, he had an evaluation to determine the cause of severe headaches that occurred whenever he

Mr. Gowing read for even a short time. A significant defect in eye muscle movement led to solutions that permitted him to study the science courses he had not been able to take while in college. With success in that area, Mr. Gowing enrolled in the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine at Tulane, earning his Master of Public Health in epidemiology, thus applying his strong comprehension of statistics to a discipline that, for him, was more interesting than business and finance. After a long friendship, he and Clover Brodhead of Cincinnati were married in 1967. Remaining childfree, they worked as educators in Ohio, Kentucky, Arizona, California, Texas, Indiana, Tennessee and Illinois before moving to Washington state in 1985. After retirement, the Gowings spent time in New Hampshire and north-central Arizona, but nowhere else could equal the favorable attributes of the North Olympic Peninsula, and they settled in Sequim in 2000. Mr. Gowing was a member of the Freedom

From Religion Foundation of Madison, Wisconsin (, the Juan de Fuca Freethinkers of Clallam County, a life member of the Friends of the Sequim Library and a supporter of Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest (www.planned, as well as local animal welfare and rescue programs. His wife, Clover, survives Mr. Gowing. Also surviving are the children of his late sister, Patricia Gowing Plumb, Kate Plumb and Bob Plumb of Long Island, New York, Annie Plumb and Amy Plumb of Manhattan, New York, and Mary Plumb of Ashland, Oregon; and close relatives Heather Brodhead of Santa Barbara, California, and Kristen Hagen of Sacramento, California. He will be greatly missed by the Western branch of the Gowing family, whose members were unknown to him before moving to Kirkland; they share an ancestor who emigrated from the British Isles to Massachusetts in 1638. The People’s Memorial Funeral Cooperative of Seattle, www.funerals. coop, made final arrangements. There will be no services. An open house will be held in honor of Parker Gowing on Sunday, June 3, 2012, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at a private home in Sequim.

Ruth moved to Crestwood Convalescent Center about three years ago, when she needed 24-hour care. Even though she was blind and had lost most of her hearing, she always had a smile on her face. Her motto in life was “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Ruth was a member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church for 57 years; she had attended the Sequim Seventh-day Adventist Church for 37 years. Her church family meant a lot to her. Ruth is survived by Rosemary (McGuire) and Paul Schoville of Port Angeles; son Larry Linden (Ruth) of Colfax, California; nine grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren. We will miss her greatly, but she is at rest, waiting for the Lord’s return.

PORT ANGELES — Friends, admirers and business associates are invited to a Thursday night reception where seven community heroes will be honored with the Clallam County Community Service Award for 2012. The award honors the “dedication, sacrifice and accomplishments� of community leaders and volunteers “who have made a difference in Clallam County, who have made our communities a better place by doing extraordinary things for their neighbors, their community or the environment.� The honorees are: ■Anna Barrigan, a retired community pharmacist and job counselor who has devoted energy and hard work to the Salvation Army, Project Homeless Connect,




Shelter Providers, Volunteers in Medicine of the Olympics and many other groups. ■Cheri Fleck, whose vision, drive and leadership helped create Sarge’s Place in Forks, a center for returning and homeless veterans and their families. ■ John Halberg, enthusiastic co-founder and inventive leader of the North Olympic Peninsula Rowing Association for youths and adults. ■ Dan Huff, volunteer fire-

A judging committee that included a past Community Service Award recipient selected the seven from 23 nominations made by individuals, clubs, churches, businesses and other organizations. “These are truly local heroes, working to make community life stronger, tighter, happier, richer — busy people who unselfishly give their time and energy to help others, who always seem to be able to make time to offer a hand or a shoulder,� said John Brewer, PDN editor and publisher.

International lavender panel Unemployment set this weekend in Sequim stays flat even BY JEFF CHEW PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

SEQUIM — Lavender growers and those who love the fragrant purple flower worldwide are expected at the Sequim International Lavender Conference, which begins Friday. The three-day conference — which includes a “post-conference session� Monday — will feature world-renowned experts in the industry and is drawing international participation, said Scott Nagel, executive director of the Sequim Lavender Farmers Association, event sponsor. The industry-wide conference based at the Sequim Holiday Inn Express, 1441 E. Washington St., will include workshops as well as hands-on farm demonstrations.

Third conference It is the third such conference. Two others have been conducted in Sequim during the past decade. The conference, which costs $325, is scheduled at both the Sequim Holiday Inn Express and at the farms of the Sequim Lavender Farmers Association, combining indoor workshops with “boots on the ground� sessions at some of the Sequim lavender farms. About 100 have registered for the conference, Nagal said. Among them are residents of New South Wales, Australia; British Columbia, Canada; Ontario, Canada; Puerto Rico; Arizona; California; Colorado; Delaware; Florida; Georgia; Iowa; Idaho; Illinois; Maryland; Michigan; North Car-

olina; Oregon; Virginia; and Washington state, he added. An additional seminar Monday — on “Culinary Lavender and the Food Modernization Act� — is open to both conference participants and any others interested, Nagel said. The seminar will run from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with lunch included. Single-day registration is $75. As an add-on to the full conference, it will cost $65. The daylong seminar is popular in light of growing concerns over food cleanliness and quality, Nagel said. It’s for anyone interested in commercial food processing, such as cooking with lavender. “We are developing a program called ‘Sequim Certified’ that will provide scientific grading standards and testing for lavender to be used in food products,� Nagel said. “Sequim lavender is 97 percent clean, which is about as clean as you can get,� Nagel said.

Farm visits, workshops On Friday, the conference will begin at 10 a.m., with shuttles leaving the Holiday Inn Express for open farm visits at Jardin du Soleil Lavender, Olympic Lavender Farm, Port Williams Lavender, Purple Haze Lavender Farm, Sunshine Herb & Lavender Farm and Washington Lavender. Workshops are scheduled Saturday and Sunday. “Whether participants are experienced farmers or just getting started, the

Sequim International Lavender Conference will provide everyone with an opportunity to learn about industry best-practices and see how Sequim farmers have utilized their land, balancing the geography of their sites, developing individual identities and compilations of their acquired knowledge and experience,� Nagel said.

Keynote speaker A key draw for lavender growers from around the world, said Nagel, is conference keynote speaker Tim Upson, co-author of The Genus Lavandula, which Nagel calls the “lavender bible.� Upson — curator of Cambridge University’s 40-acre Botanic Garden in Cambridge, England — will speak at 6:30 p.m. Friday and at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. Nagel also will speak during the conference about lavender festivals and tourism. Saturday speakers and their topics are Michelle Thibert, owner of Soulscents & Bodywork in Enumclaw, on aromatherapy; Victor Gonzales, owner of Victor’s Lavender in Sequim, on propagating and growing lavender; Ann Harmon, owner of Morning Myst Botanics, on hydrosols; Curtis Beus, who served as the Washington State University Extension director in Clallam County for 15 years, on agritourism; and Kathy Gehrt, author of Discover Cooking with Lavender, on culinary lavender.

PORT ANGELES — Unemployment held flat on the North Olympic Peninsula last month despite the addition of 160 new jobs in Clallam and Jefferson counties, the state Employment Security Department reported Tuesday. Clallam County’s unemployment rate went from a revised 11 percent in February to a preliminary 11.2 percent in March. Jefferson County’s jobless rate dipped from a revised 10.6 percent in February to a revised 10.4 percent in March. “It’s really kind of an unusual situation,� said Elizabeth Court, regional economist for Employment Security. “Basically, there were 50 additional unemployed people in Clallam County between February and March, and those 50 people raised unemployment from 11 [percent] to 11.2 percent in the labor force. “But when you look at the actual jobs in the county, there was an increase in 80 positions.�

Life as a West End vampire-biologist OUR ATTEMPT TO to help Stephenie Meyer come up with another Twilight novel — to enhance and preserve the sustainable Twilight tourist industry that makes the North Olympic Peninsula so cool — is coming to an end. I’m still expecting StePat phenie’s call Neal any moment. SITTING IN A swamp in the dark with a bucket of chicken-fried owl waiting for the Bigfoot to show up, Edward Cullen reflects that this is not how he envisioned his life would turn out. How the cruel winds of fate had changed Edward from a werewolf-stomping, bloodsucking hero-beast of a vampire, striking terror in the hearts of peasants and their despots alike, to a working man’s hero with a deadend job harassing innocent fish and animals as a government wildlife biologist. Edward thinks for a minute how he’d rather have a wooden stake pounded through his heart

than be a biologist. But the thought of the drycleaning and repair bill to his designer double-breasted biologist suit makes him reconsider. Things are tight at the Cullen home in the West End cabin. Bella is forced to cut Edward’s blood soup with tomato paste. He pretends not to notice, but Edward is getting so skinny and beat up that he looks like a tweaker who spent the weekend in a culvert pipe. That night at dinner, Bella senses that something’s wrong. “Rough day at work?” she asks. “The worst,” Edward rants. “The Boss Biologist read in the paper that the National Park Service is charging for a permit to hunt for Bigfoot. “The Double B says anything the national park can charge for, the state can charge more for. “He’s right, you know. “There’s no reason people should get away with hunting for Bigfoot without a permit. It’s just not right! “I mean, this is Washington. You need a permit to gather seaweed, for crying out loud. “And these Bigfoot hunters have the nerve to think they can pursue a public resource for private gain? We’ll show them!”

Edward is pounding his fist on the table. “That sounds wonderful, honey,” Bella says. “But doesn’t someone have to catch a Bigfoot first? I mean, so we can get a good picture of it — for like, identification purposes? “So there are no more of these unfortunate accidents with loggers or fishermen being mistaken for the creature?” “Do you have to keep throwing that in my face, Bella?” Edward sobs. “That was a mistake, ancient history. What happened was partly their fault. “They never should have wandered into the study area in the first place — without a permit anyway. “They were treated and released the same day with only superficial wounds. I said I was sorry. “They moved on. Can’t you? “Maybe I shouldn’t talk about my work. No one understands,” Edward puts on a sulking face. “I understand.” Bella says. “You do?” Edward sobs. “Of course, I understand,” Bella replies. “You’re a biologist. You shoot owls to protect them, don’t you? So what if you have to shoot some Bigfoot to protect them.

Pat’s book-signing PAT NEAL, THE Peninsula Daily News’ “wildlife gossip columnist,” will sign copies of his new book and CD, WildLife, Vol. 2, at the grand opening Sunday of Jerry’s Bait and Tackle, 2720 E. U.S. Highway 101, Port Angeles. Pat describes his work as “a collection of stories where I make friends with the animals the old fashioned way — I stopped shooting them.” He continues: “Store owner Jerry Wright is a fishing guide for salmon and steelhead out on the same West End rivers I fish, so if there is anyway I can keep him off the river and busy in his new tackle shop, I’m there to support a friend and fellow angler.”

“I think it’s the least we can do to save an endangered species. It worked for the hundred-pound salmon didn’t it?” That is one of the things Edward loves about Bella. No matter how crazy things get, she still believes him. That makes Edward believe in himself. Which is a good thing considering that things were about to get even crazier. It began one day when Bella insisted they all go on a picnic. Edward loathed picnics — unless they were at midnight under a full moon. But he suspected that Bella

might be getting cabin fever, a common malady after a dark winter in Forks. Ever the good husband, Edward loads up the van with the car seat for the demon spawn and his idea of vampire picnic supplies, a bottle of diet pop and a can of chew.

The last point is actually the focus. The word “underutilized” has been sprouting wings in conversation about this proposed mismanagement of our resources. The park is in constant use by those who have invested and own property in the vicinity of the park, and the six points go to explain their direct concern over cutting trees and may be a class-action lawsuit to protect their interests. It’s very clear that the port and associated interests are “dangling” financially and would be ill prepared for the resulting legal imbroglio. 3.

Heirloom fishing rod for the ages I TAKE IT from its faded cloth wrap every April, the ancient split-bamboo Peerless fly rod my grandfather gave me nearly 60 years ago. It looks much the same Seabury as it did when Blair Jr. he gave it to me. The silver guides and reel seat is just as shiny, though the ferrules show wear. The rod was built in the days when each piece of bamboo was shaped by hand and each wrap carefully laid. The wraps are spaced but a few inches apart, and alternate red, gold and burgundy.

A royal blue velvet-clothed case protected the rod, hugging it to fitted indentions and holding it in place with velvet ties, top and bottom. In the years since it was given to me, the velvet has worn but the case has done its job well. I wish I could say the same for the young angler whose grandfather entrusted him with such a treasure. Like many youngsters then and now, I valued things only for the instant pleasure they provided. So it was that as boy and young adult, I packed the rod on fishing expeditions where it was hardly treated with the respect it deserved. It weathered rainstorms under trees, batted brush beside whispering creeks, sometimes became a sword in battles with a














knight bearing an uncanny resemblance to my older brother. I caught my first trout on that rod at Lake Taweel in British Columbia. My grandfather was dying of cancer, and my aunt took him, my brother and me on his final fishing outing. Granddad spent most of the week in the little log cabin, too sick to join us on the lake or beside the tumbling outlet stream behind the cabin. I caught the trout in the creek, where I let the current drift the fly downstream. It was pure luck, since I hadn’t learned to read moving water. If the truth were known, that’s still pretty much the case. When I got out of the Army in the late 1960s, I began carrying the Peerless on backpacking

expeditions in the Cascades and Olympics. It felt so different from fiberglass rods — mellow and relaxed, as befitting its age. The last time I fished with it was at Deer Lake in Olympic National Park. I backpacked up to the lake, and after pitching my tent near one of the two wooden shelters that used to be beside the lake, I waded out far enough so I could cast without catching brush behind. I spent about an hour, whipping the rod and bombing the fly to the lake as if it were a massive boulder. Brook trout probably fled downstream to the Sol Duc River. A final cast, and I heard the tip of the rod snap. It seemed as if the noise brought every memory into focus as once, and when I got home, I

put the Peerless into its velvet cocoon to take out only once or twice a year. Like many of the best split bamboo rods, the Peerless came with a spare tip, so not all was lost. I have thought, often when I remove it from its faded wrap, that I should have it rebuilt by a professional. But I’ve put it off. I’m not certain new varnish and polished silver would shine as bright.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Wednesday, April 25, 2012 SECTION


B Golf

SunLand golfers go east to play A DOZEN SUNLAND Golf and Country Club members of Sequim recently traveled to Snake River Canyon country in southeast Washington to compete in the Clarkston Golf and Country Club’s Banana Belt Seniors Tournament. Steve Zipser notched overall Michael low-net honors for the First Carman Flight with a total of 218; Lee Cox was second in gross for the Second Flight with a total of 283; Cheryl Coulter was second in gross for the Second Flight and Dorene Berard was third in the ladies First Flight division. As the tourney’s name implies, Clarkston and neighboring city Lewiston, Idaho, sit in a banana-belt climate zone, at least in winter and early spring. There’s plenty of sunny days and warm-enough temperatures for yearround golf. Before construction of Palouse Ridge Golf Course, the Washington State University men’s golf team would travel the 35 miles down the Lewiston grade to practice and host tournaments. In summer, the weather turns the valley into what my dad and I would jokingly call “the blast furnace” when we would head down from Pullman for the annual pre-fall semester Costco trip. If you find yourself in the area and want to golf, there is one public course, Quail Ridge, in Clarkston, or Bryden Canyon and Lewiston Golf & Country Club in Lewiston. Clarkston Golf & Country Club is open to all players in January and February but only open for members and guests the rest of the year. I’d also suggest the Tomato Brothers Italian restaurant for a preor post-round meal.

Wolves edge Riders Sequim improves to 6-1 in Olympic girls tennis PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

SEQUIM — It would be hard to find two teams as equal as the Sequim and Port Angeles girls tennis teams. Their Olympic League match Monday wasn’t decided until the final match with the Wolves coming out on top 4-3. “Many of the matches were very competitive, and it came down to the last match,” Port Angeles coach Brian Gundersen said. “It seems that every match against Sequim is going to come down to the wire, and [Monday] was no different.” The two teams had a doubleheader with the second match a nonleague affair. Even though both teams moved players around, the Wolves won again, by the same 4-3 score thanks to a sweep in singles with wins by Stacy Hanson, Katrina Chan and Hannah Gauthun, and a victory at No. 4 doubles by Calli Norman and Heidi Stallman. Sequim took a different

Preps route in the league match, winning two of three singles matches and splitting the four doubles matches to win by one. The Wolves improve to 6-1 in league and 9-2 overall with the victories. In the league match, the Wolves captured No. 2 and No. 3 singles to get a leg up after the Roughriders took the No. 1 singles match. The Riders’ Caylie Cook beat Anna Prorok 6-3, 6-2 at No. 1 but Sequim quickly took the advantage when Hillary Smith beat Kyrie Reyes 6-3, 6-2 at No. 2 and Hannah Gauthun defeated Callie Peet 6-4, 7-6 (7-4) at No. 3 in one of the most contested matches of the day. Gauthun had an easier time in the nonleague match, beating Peet 6-2, 6-4 when the two Melanie Guan keeps her eye on the ball while playing matched up again at No. 3.

State police probing Saints over wire tapping THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW ORLEANS — While state police and the FBI started a wiretapping probe into the Saints and general manager Mickey Loomis, assistant head coach Joe Vitt called allegations that Loomis’ had his Superdome booth wired so he could listen to opposing coaches “ludicrous.” “It’s absolutely ludicrous. It’s impossible,” Vitt said Tuesday. “I’ve never heard of it before.” “That’s something from ‘Star Wars.’ When I first heard something about it being a wiretap, I thought they were talking about Sammy “the Bull” Gravano or something. I didn’t even know what they were talking about.” “And then to associate Mickey with that? That’s irresponsible. It’s a shame.” Vitt met with reporters for the first time since being appointed to serve in head coach Sean Payton’s place during Payton’s season-long suspension in connection with the NFL’s bounty investigation of New Orleans. Vitt himself will have to serve

a six-game suspension for his role in the cash-for-big hits system the Saints ran from 2009-11, and Loomis will be out for eight games. The bounty probe is unrelated to the investigation a joint Louisiana state police and FBI task force opened after being made aware of anonymous allegations from an ESPN report that Loomis was able eavesdrop on opposing coaches’ radio communications from 2002 to 2004.

Joint effort State police Col. Mike Edmonson confirmed the joint effort Tuesday after discussing the matter with Dave Welker, special agent in charge at the FBI’s New Orleans field office. “I thought that was an excellent opportunity to share resources to see if federal or state wiretapping laws were in fact broken,” Edmonson said by phone from Baton Rouge.” “It’s important for the public to know these are allegations at this point. We will thoroughly, expeditiously, but fairly look into

whether any laws have been broken. If they have, we’ll sit down with the district attorney in that area to determine how to proceed.”

Saints deny Loomis and the Saints have called the allegations “1000 percent false,” and have said they are reviewing legal recourse following the report by ESPN, which could not verify the system was used. Vitt said he has worked with Loomis 17 years in the NFL, dating to their early days in the league together in Seattle, and that one of the reasons he joined the Saints in 2006 was because he understands Loomis’ core beliefs. “Anybody that ever wants to question Mickey’s integrity on something like this. I mean, this is juvenile,” Vitt said. “This is so bad, what’s been reported, and it’s irresponsible. It really is. I just know it’s not true. I know what Mickey’s meant in my life and I know what he’s meant in the lives of a lot of peo-

ple around this league and you can’t get anybody to find fault with Mickey Loomis. That’s just the truth.” The alleged actions would violate NFL rules, if not state and federal laws. Edmonson said he is aware that statutes of limitations — six years under state wiretapping laws — may hinder prosecution but added, “Let’s find out if any laws have been broken first, and that’s what we’re doing right now.” “It’s up to us to find out facts and get with the district attorney, who will then decide” if the time to prosecute has passed. The statute of limitations for federal wiretapping crimes is generally five years. “Where these allegations take us, we’ll certainly go there,” Edmonson said. “Out of fairness to the people involved, let’s find out if any of these allegations are factual.” Under Louisiana law, the only law enforcement agency in Louisiana that can investigate wiretap-

ping violations is the state police. Loomis explained his use of an earpiece and described his gameday setup in the Superdome booth in an emailed statement on Monday afternoon. He said he has a monitor in his booth that provides the leagueissued stats, a small TV with the network broadcast and an earpiece to listen to the local radio broadcast. “To think I am sitting in there listening and actually ... doing something with the offensive and defensive play calls of the opposing teams makes this story and the unnamed sources that provided the false information that much more less credible,” Loomis’ statement said. “It just didn’t happen.” Washington Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett was the Saints’ head coach from 2000 through 2005. In a comment the Saints forwarded to the AP by email, Haslett denied knowledge of any system that would have allowed for eavesdropping on opponents.





Preps: Chimacum baseball team undefeated CONTINUED FROM B1 The powerhouse team of Stacy Hanson and Katrina Chan kept the Wolves in the advantage by beating Shayla Bohman and Danielle Rutherford 6-2, 6-3 at No. 1 doubles. The Riders stayed in the match by claiming the No. 2 and No. 3 doubles matches. Chelsea Drake and Jordy Fickas beat Melanie Guan and Tenisha Powless 6-3, 6-4 at No. 2 and Kelsey Coffman and Lissy Moriarty defeated Jessica Defilippo and Elizabeth Shore 6-4, 2-6, 6-4 in another highly competitive match. One of the key matches of the day, though, was at No. 4 doubles where Sequim’s Heidi Stallman and Calli Norman beat Erin McKenna and Krissy Marvelle 6-2, 6-2. The Riders did win the majority of the nonleague doubles matches as Rutherford and Bohman won at No. 1 on a default, Fickas and Drake won at No. 2 and Moriarty and Coffman won at No. 3. The Riders next host Kingston and the Wolves host North Mason today in makeup league action, weather permitting.

Baseball Port Angeles 4, North Mason 0 PORT ANGELES — Junior Wesley Giddings threw a seven-inning nohitter Monday to help the Roughriders keep pace in the Olympic League standings. The Riders claimed their fifth win in a row and improved to 9-4 in league, a game behind rival Sequim (10-3) and a half-game behind North Kitsap (9-3) for third place with the season winding down. Giddings (3-1) threw a stellar game despite not even having his best stuff for the Bulldogs. He struck out seven while giving up no hits and no runs. Giddings, however, had control problems at times, walking five. He had given up just four walks the whole season before Monday’s game. “Wesley threw strikes

He was competitive and he stayed around the plate.� When he did throw balls, Giddings threw them in bunches. “I would go out to the mound, settle him down, and he would be fine,� Withrow said. “He didn’t try to strike everybody out. He let his defense work behind him. And the defense had a great day.� Giddings has the second lowest ERA on the team, just behind big 6-foot-8 Easton Napiontek. The Riders scored two runs in the third and two in the sixth for all they would need. Napiontek had the best day at the plate, going 2 for 3 with a double and RBI.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Wednesday, April 25, 2012 PAGE



WASHINGTON — The Federal Reserve will have plenty to say about the economy today, when its two-day policy meeting ends with a statement, updated forecasts and Chairman Ben Bernanke’s news conference. Whether all that information will signal any shift in its outlook or the prospect of further steps to boost the economy is far from clear.

Likely won’t change much





Joe Shideler, owner of Angeles Brewing Supplies, 103 W. First St., kneels next to bins filled with malted grain during the shop’s grand opening in downtown Port Angeles on Saturday. The shop, which features a variety of supplies for making beer, wine and cheese, also will serve as the monthly meeting place for the North Olympic Brewers Guild, a local club of home brewers.

Pocket Yacht Palooza coming up in PT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT TOWNSEND — A oneday boat show organized by the Port Townsend Pocket Yachters club to celebrate traditional smaller rowing and sailing boats, will be held Saturday, May 19. The free Pocket Yacht Palooza will be at the Northwest Maritime Center, 431 Water St., from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Boats belonging to several

Puget Sound-area groups, including the Port Townsend Pocket Yachters and the Puget Sound chapter of the Traditional Small Craft Association, will participate, along with crafts from the Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding and the Northwest Maritime Center’s boatshop. Organizers are appealing to owners of other smaller rowing or sailing craft in the 10- to 23-foot range to participate in the event.

The Fed likely will repeat its plan to keep short-term interest rates at record lows through 2014. It also may signal that it likely won’t launch any new program to lower longer-term rates unless the economy weakens. That would be a switch from three months ago, when Bernanke and colleagues ended their January meeting by hinting they were edging closer to a third round of bond buying. The Fed’s bond purchases have been intended to drive

down long-term rates to encourage borrowing and spending. Since then, signs have suggested that the U.S. economy has strengthened. And the European debt crisis looks less dire than when the year began, though France’s presidential race has muddied the outlook. Those developments make a further round of Fed bond-buying less likely, many economists said. “This will be a wait-andwatch meeting,� said David Jones, chief economist at DMJ Advisors. “Despite all the theatrics with a Bernanke press conference and new economic forecasts, I think we will get a very predictable outcome.� That would mean the Fed would retain its plan to keep its benchmark interest rate at a record low until late 2014. The Fed set that target at its January meeting and left it unchanged at its March meeting. Fed officials began their discussions Tuesday and will conclude today with the release of their statement summarizing what was decided.

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke is scheduled to make an announcement on the economy at a news conference today.

The Pocket Yacht Palooza is cosponsored by the Small Craft Skills Academy, a four-day program that begins May 20. The Skills Academy is being organized by small-craft adventurer Howard Rice, who will speak at the Northwest Maritime Center at 7 p.m. May 19. Admission will be $7 per person for the talk.

Briefly . . . Poetry party slated today at PA Library PORT ANGELES — A spring poetry party will be held at the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St., at 6:30 p.m. today. Both live and online poetry readings will be featured, along with recommendations from library staff and participants, and an opportunity to put pen to paper and compose your own poem. Attendees also can recommend their favorite poet or collection. Participants can share titles of books in any genre. “Not everyone has the time to read an assigned book for a book discussion

group or can attend a regular meeting,” said librarian Lorrie Kovell. “This kind of event gives readers and poetry lovers a chance to share thoughts and ideas with others of the same ilk.” There also will be a book swap. To participate, bring a gently used book to swap with other readers. Refreshments and beverages will be provided, and door prizes will be presented. The spring poetry party is a special event in the library’s ongoing book discussion series. The Winter Readers Revel, the library’s first quarterly party, drew a crowd of 30 readers. This event is free, and preregistration is not required.

Benefit stage show PORT TOWNSEND — A benefit performance of “Just on a Fence” will be held at the Palace Hotel, 215 Tyler St., on Friday. Doors will open at 7 p.m., with the show starting at 8 p.m. The original production was first presented at the Victorian Heritage Festival Ball this spring. Port Townsend’s 13-yearold Madeline Holland-Jackson plays the story’s heroine, Lyndsey McLaughlin, in the year 1892 as she determines her own path to the New York stage. McLaughlin encounters a gypsy fortune-teller and a pair of enchanted toe shoes “that can lead her on the path to success if she has the belief and courage within herself to follow her dreams.” Holland-Jackson will perform a clown ballet and toe dances and will sing some grand opera during the performance. Proceeds from ticket sales and donations will start a fund drive to help Holland-Jackson in her reallife ambition to perform on Broadway.
