FORKS — Steve Markwell and all of the 124 dogs from the Olympic Animal Sanctuary in Forks arrived intact Tuesday afternoon at an unidentified private dog sanctuary in the area of the Arizona-Nevada border, an animal rescue group spokesman said Wednesday. Markwell, who did not return calls for comment Wednesday, left Saturday from his Forksbased sanctuary, piloting a 53-foot tractor-trailer loaded with the crated animals. “They all arrived safely,” said Robert Misseri, president of Smithtown, N.Y.-based Guardians of Rescue, which is organizing the rescue and eventual distribution of the dogs to animal welfare groups capable of managing the animals.

The dogs, many of which are considered violent and unadoptable to families, had been housed at Markwell’s 4,000-square-foot warehouse at 1021 Russell Road, where protesters had gathered daily for weeks to protest what they said were the sanctuary’s inhumane conditions.

Photos depicting dogs living in travel crates purported to have been taken inside by former volunteers and Forks police have been at the center of a nationwide Facebook campaign to shut it down for more than a year.

Scorsese, DiCaprio join forces again “ANYTHING GOES” WAS the guiding ethos for Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio in making their extravagant dark comedy of Wall Street excess, “The Wolf of Wall Street.” “We would look at each other and ask, ‘Are we going too far?’” said DiCaprio. Rarely was the answer “yes.” The two longtime collaborators pushed the basedon-a-true-story tale to the limits of outrageousness, decency and MPAA approval. With pinstripe suits instead of togas, it’s their “Satyricon,” their “Caligula”: a nearly three-hourlong orgy of money, sex and drugs. The partnership between the 71-year-old Scorsese and DiCaprio, 39, has now stretched over five films and more than a dozen years. They’ve together been able to carve out a space for the kind of daring Hollywood typically shuns. “Anything goes” is far from the mantra of today’s movie business. “I don’t think people really quite understand how unique this movie is,” said DiCaprio, while Scorsese, sitting next to him, nods. “No matter what they think of the movie, you do not see films like this happening.”

A3 Briefly: Nation Utah is denied again on gay marriage order SALT LAKE CITY — A federal appeals court has refused yet again to stop gay marriage in Utah, making it more likely that same-sex weddings in the home of the Mormon church are here to stay for the immediate future. The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals’ rejection of Utah’s request for an emergency order to put gay marriage on hold marked yet another legal setback for the state. Utah lawyers have repeatedly struck out in their bid to block gay marriage, getting rejected on four occasions in recent days. Utah’s last chance to temporarily stop the marriages would be a long-shot request before U.S. Supreme Court. That’s what the Utah attorney general’s office is prepared to do, spokesman Ryan Bruckman said. Gov. Gary Herbert’s office declined to comment on the decision.

Foreign adoptions WASHINGTON — Amid partisan conflict in Congress, dozens of lawmakers from both parties — including staunch liberals and conservatives — have united behind a bill that supporters said addresses a heartrending issue beyond politics: the millions of foreign children languishing in orphanages or otherwise at risk because they have no immediate family. The bill would encourage more adoptions of foreign orphans, which have declined

steadily in recent years, and reflects impatience with current policies overseen by the State Department. “Every Landrieu child needs and deserves to grow up in a family,” said the bill’s chief advocate, Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La. “While our foreign policy has done much to keep children alive and healthy, it has not prioritized this basic human right.” Titled the Children in Families First Act, the measure has been introduced in slightly different forms in both the Senate and House.

Lawsuit tossed out PHILADELPHIA — A federal appeals court has rejected a man’s bid to sue federal agents after he was stopped at an airport for several hours over Arabic language flashcards he was carrying four years ago. Nicholas George said the Transportation Security Administration and FBI agents violated his constitutional rights during the August 2009 stop at Philadelphia International Airport. A district judge rejected the agents’ assertion of immunity. But the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals disagreed Tuesday and said the agents were justified in detaining him briefly to investigate. Chief Judge Theodore McKee said they couldn’t “turn a blind eye to someone trying to board an airplane carrying ArabicEnglish flashcards with words such as ‘bomb’ and ‘kill.’” The Associated Press

If not, a phone call to the insurer might clear things up.

Briefly: World Christmas Day bombings in Iraq kill dozens BAGHDAD — Militants in Iraq targeted Christians in three separate Christmas Day bombings in Baghdad, killing at least 37 people, officials said Wednesday. In one attack, a car bomb went off near a church in the capital’s southern Dora neighborhood, killing at least 26 people and wounding 38, a police officer said. Earlier, two bombs ripped through a nearby outdoor market simultaneously in the Christian section of Athorien, killing 11 people and wounding 21, the officer said.

U.N. agents targeted BAGHDAD — The shadowy leader of a powerful al-Qaida group fighting in Syria sought to kidnap United Nations workers and scrawled out plans for his aides to take over in the event of his death, according to excerpts of letters obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press. Iraqi intelligence officials offered the AP the letters, as well as the first known photograph of the Nusra Front leader, Abu Mohammed al-Golani, the head of one of the most powerful and

feared bands of radicals fighting the Syrian government in the country’s civil war. “I was told by a soldier that he observed some Al-Golani of the workers of the U.N., and he will kidnap them. I ask God for his success,” read an excerpt of a letter given by officials from Iraq’s Falcon Intelligence Cell, an anti-terrorism unit that works under Prime Minister Nouri alMaliki. The officials said other letters planned the kidnapping and killing of other foreigners, and Syrian and Iraqi civilians.

Grave claim denied NAIROBI, Kenya — The United Nations mission in South Sudan has denied a report of a mass grave that was issued by the office of a U.N. Commissioner for Human Rights. The Berlin office of Navi Pillay said Tuesday that a grave of 34 bodies was found in Bentiu, Unity State, with 75 people feared missing. The U.N. mission in South Sudan said the erroneous report was an inflation of a “skirmish” in which 15 people were killed. The Associated Press

Alan Oliver Frazier, 51, told patients to leave or he’d shoot them after he entered the Urology Nevada office last week and soon began firing a pistolgrip, 12-gauge shotgun. Frazier said he was angry because “he had a vasectomy here, and they ruined his life,” a male witness told a dispatcher from a locked bathroom.

THE ICE THAT knocked out power to more than half a million people in the U.S. and Canada is stubbornly hanging on as frigid temperatures blanket a region from the Great Lakes to New England. Utilities said they’re making progress getting the lights back on from Michigan to Maine, and people were slowly trickling out of shelters to spend Christmas at home. But others could lose power as wind knocks down more tree limbs, and some regions could get 2 to 6 inches of snow today. That would make it harder for workers to get to downed lines.

AUTHORITIES IN AIKEN, S.C., said a woman speeding away from a store in South Carolina after being accused of shoplifting on Christmas Eve was killed in a head-on crash. Aiken County Coroner Tim Carlton said 31-year-old Lucinda Randolph died shortly after the wreck around noon Tuesday. Aiken police said Randolph got away from a store security officer at a Walmart and sped away on state Highway 19. Police said officers tried to pull her over, but she kept driving and hit a car. A child was with Randolph, and authorities did not release the child’s condition.

East Jefferson fire commissioner sworn in PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

He began teaching soon after he moved to Port Hadlock in 1984 and volunteered for the Chimacum Fire District. Johnson now serves as the volunteer Operations Section Chief for the Jefferson County Department of Emergency Management. He retired from the U.S. Forest Service in 2007 after 39 years of service.

PORT TOWNSEND — New East Jefferson FireRescue Commissioner Dave Johnson has been sworn into office. Johnson, who ran unopposed in November, was sworn in Dec. 17, said Bill Beezley, district spokesman. Johnson, a Port Hadlock resident, replaces outgoing Commissioner Ed Edwards, a former Port Townsend fire chief who was appointed in 2011 to fill the Position 3 seat vacated by Jess Bondurant, who died earlier that year. Edwards did not seek an elected term in November. Johnson, a fire management officer with Olympic National Forest from 1984 to 1996, was the first emergency medical technician instructor in Jefferson County, Beezley said.

Forest Service Among his service was working on a wildland engine from 1969 to 1974 in the Snoqualmie National Forest, serving as a helitack manager and assistant fire management officer in the Colville National Forest from 1974 to 1978 and as a fuel management specialist for the Umpqua National Forest from 1978-1984.

LONGVIEW — State officials are revoking the operating license of a Washington retirement facility after an 88-year-old woman froze to death in one of its courtyards earlier this month. Officials with the Department of Social and Health Services said staff mistakes and ineffective security measures at Canterbury Gardens Alzheimer Care in Longview are to blame for Norma Sheldon’s death Dec. 6, The Daily News of Longview said.



Sheldon’s body was found in an enclosed, openair courtyard after staff missed a required hourly bed check at midnight. The Alzheimer’s patient was wearing only a nightgown in the 28-degree weather, the newspaper reported. She died of hypothermia.

‘Serious situation’ “This was a very serious situation,” said Irene Owens, interim director of the state’s residential care services, part of the health services department.

According to the state’s revocation letter, the violations found by investigators “resulted in the death to a resident and put 61 other residents at risk for accidents or injuries.” The facility can continue to care for its current 57 residents while an appeal takes place, but it can’t accept new patients. Olympia-based Koelsch Senior Communities, which owns Canterbury Gardens, said in a statement that it was aware of the state’s concerns and was “already in the process of taking every measure necessary to

SEATTLE — A Boeing machinist worker is seeking to delay a vote on a proposed contract with the company. The Seattle Times reported union member Robley Evans has filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board. He said the union is not providing members a reasonable opportunity to vote because some will still be on vacation when the Jan. 3 vote occurs. An official with the National Labor Relations Board said an investigation likely wouldn’t be completed before the vote.

The state said it will monitor patient care and require staff to accompany patients when they are out in the center’s courtyard. Investigators looking into Sheldon’s death found a worker failed to do a midnight bed check. They also found that not all the doors to the courtyard had operational locks or alarms, and some alarms that were on were too faint to be heard clearly. Officials said some safety hazards remained uncorrected three days after Sheldon died. The woman’s husband, Don Sheldon, told The Daily News he had not seen the report but wants the problems corrected. “I don’t have anger about this,” he said Monday. “I’m very disappointed, and I don’t want it to happen again.”

SEATTLE — A Christmas Eve fire in Seattle’s International District has raised some old ghosts. The building that erupted in flames Tuesday afternoon was the site of Washington state’s deadliest mass killing — the 1983 Wah Mee massacre. The Seattle Times reported that the mostly vacant building has been on the Seattle Fire Department’s dangerous list because of the high risk of fire and collapse. Authorities said Tuesday’s fire was unrelated to the building’s history, but locals found the coincidence creepy. The Associated Press

After picketing and protesting outside Markwell’s warehouse since Dec. 2, protesters were gone Tuesday for the first time in several days, Forks Police Administrator Rick Bart said Wednesday. “I don’t think Mr. Markwell did the city of Forks any good at all,” Bart said. He also criticized protesters who claimed the city should have done more about Olympic Animal Sanctuary and was upset that some had called for boycotting Forks businesses. City officials have said Markwell was doing nothing illegal. “We are very happy Mr. Markwell is teaming up with Guardians of Rescue,” Seattle-area animal welfare advocate Maggie McDowell said Wednesday, adding she opposed any boycotts. “We are hoping these dogs get the care they need,” McDowell said.

Peninsula Voices Air show Some years back, there was an annual event put on by the Port of Port Angeles out at William R. Fairchild International Airport. It was an air show. In my opinion, it was a great community event — there was something for everybody, young and old alike. There were skydivers, model planes, old planes, and planes flying in formation. There was even a flyover by the Air Force, and much more. You didn’t stand around waiting for something to happen, either. It was a well-run show, and things clicked right along. And now, nothing — for

the past several years, no more air show. The port seems to have money to spend on many different agendas. I have no intention of arguing the merits of those expenditures. Since some of their money comes from the taxpayer, which is the community at large, why not bring back the air show and have another great community event? Tom Hamilton, Sequim We asked port Marina and Airport Manager Jerry Ludke for a response. Here it is: Airport Days, which featured the activities described by the letter writer at William R. Fairchild International Airport,

Phil Robertson must be familiar with this verse: “For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” (John 3:17) Here’s a New Year’s prediction: “Duck Dynasty” will be back with Phil Robertson, either on A&E or another network. When it returns, the ratings will be even higher and the profits larger. As Si Robertson might put it, “and that’s a fact, Jack.”

which is operated by the port, was discontinued several years ago. I agree, it was a great air show, and maybe we should look at it again. We had a lot of volunteers working on the event, but it also took a lot of effort on the part of port staff. Part of the reason it was discontinued was that activity at the airport has decreased. At the time, there were more than 10,000 emplanements a year. When the economy fell off the cliff in 2008, there wasn’t as much emphasis on holding the event. It could be brought up to the port commissioners as a proposal, but it would be something the port staff would decide is worth pursuing.

Caught between drones, terrorists THERE HAS BEEN yet another violent attack with mass casualties. This was not the act of a Amy lone gunman, or of an armed Goodman student rampaging through a school. It was a group of families en route to a wedding that was killed. The town was called Radda — not in Colorado, not in Connecticut, but in Yemen. The weapon was not an easy-to-obtain semiautomatic weapon, but missiles fired from U.S. drones. On Thursday, Dec. 12, 17 people were killed, mostly civilians. The London-based Bureau of Investigative Journalism has consistently tracked U.S. drone attacks, recently releasing a report on the six months following President Barack Obama’s major address on drone warfare before the National Defense University (NDU) last May. In that speech, Obama promised that “before any strike is

taken, there must be near-certainty that no civilians will be killed or injured — the highest standard we can set.” The BIJ summarized, “Six months after President Obama laid out U.S. rules for using armed drones, a Bureau analysis shows that covert drone strikes in Yemen and Pakistan have killed more people than in the six months before the speech.” In a nation that abhors the all-too-routine mass killing in our communities, why does our government consistently kill so many innocents abroad? One significant problem with assessing the U.S. drone-warfare program is its secrecy. U.S. officials rarely comment on the program, less so about any specific attack, especially where civilian deaths occur. As Obama admitted in the speech, “There’s a wide gap between U.S. assessments of such casualties and nongovernmental reports. Nevertheless, it is a hard fact that U.S. strikes have resulted in civilian casualties.” The BIJ’s estimate of the death toll from U.S. drone strikes during the past 12 years in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia is well

over 4,000. While the U.S. media shower attention on the hypothetical prospects that in the next few years, will deploy clever little drones to deliver your holiday orders, it is important to take a hard look at what these airborne robots are actually doing now. “Democracy Now!” correspondent Jeremy Scahill has been exposing U.S. covert warmaking for years, most recently in his book and film “Dirty Wars.” The film was just shortlisted for an Oscar for best documentary. After the Academy Award nomination was made, he told us, “I hope that people pay attention to these stories, that Americans will know what happened to the Bedouin villagers in al-Majalah, Yemen, where three dozen women and children were killed in a U.S. cruise missile strike that the White House tried to cover up.” In his NDU address, Obama said, “We act against terrorists who pose a continuing and imminent threat to the American people.” Neither Obama nor any of his aides have explained just what

kind of threat the wedding convoy presented to the American people. The government of Yemen, following local custom, made reparations to the victimized families, reportedly delivering 101 Kalashnikov rifles and a little over $100,000. These rural villages in Yemen are caught in the middle of a violent conflict, as Human Rights Watch wrote in an October report titled Between a Drone and AlQaeda. Just one month to the day before Obama gave his address at the NDU, Farea al-Muslimi, an eloquent young Yemeni man who spent a year attending a U.S. high school, spoke before a congressional hearing. Six days before he testified, a drone strike hit his village of Wessab. “What Wessab’s villagers knew of the U.S. was based on my stories about my wonderful experiences here,” Farea said. “Now, however, when they think of America, they think of the terror they feel from the drones that hover over their heads, ready to fire missiles at any time. “What the violent militants

With the ongoing work of committed activists, courageous journalists and responsible officials, perhaps Americans will recite as well the names Gardez, Radda, al-Majalah, Mogadishu and the many more sites of drone strikes still cloaked in secrecy.

Razor clam dates added IF YOU’RE READING this, you have officially survived another Christmas. Congratulations. Lee Now what? Horton Well, the razor clam digs keep coming. The dig tentatively scheduled for the last three days of 2013 has not only been approved, it has been more than doubled. Following marine toxin tests that showed the razor clams safe to eat, the state Department of Fish and Wildlife had approved a dig that begins this Sunday and lasts through the following Sunday, Jan. 5. As in recent months, these digs are scheduled on evening tides, and no digging will be allowed on any beach before noon.

Eight-day dig Upcoming digs are scheduled on the following dates, beaches and low tides: ■ Sunday, Dec. 29: 4:05 p.m.; -0.2 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Mocrocks and Copalis. ■ Monday, Dec. 30: 4:55 p.m.; -0.9 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Mocrocks and Copalis. ■ Tuesday, Dec. 31: 5:42 p.m.; -1.4 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Mocrocks and Copalis. ■ Wednesday, Jan. 1: 6:29 p.m.; -1.7 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach and Mocrocks. ■ Thursday, Jan. 2: 7:15 p.m.; -1.7 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach and Mocrocks. ■ Friday, Jan. 3: 8 p.m.; -1.4 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach and Mocrocks. ■ Saturday, Jan. 4: 8:45 p.m.; -0.9 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Mocrocks and Copalis. ■ Sunday, Jan. 5: 9:31 p.m.; -0.2 feet; Twin Harbors. The state also has announced its dig schedule for January and February. If the clams remain safe to eat, then various beaches will be open to razor clam harvest for 13 days in January and five days in February. Along with the five days at the start of January, digs are slated for Wednesday, Jan. 15 through Saturday, Jan. 18; Tuesday, Jan. 29 through Sunday, Feb. 2; and a Wednesday-to-Friday dig Feb. 26-28. “We’re announcing these dates now so people can start making plans for the new year,” Dan Ayres, state coastal shellfish manager, said in a news release. “We’ve had a terrific season so far, and expect plenty of great digging in the months ahead.”

More good news “Terrific season” might even be an understatement. In last Thursday’s column, fishing tackle wholesaler and former fishery biologist Ward Norden said, “I have talked to people who have been razor clam digging. They have not seen this many razor clams in years, and some don’t recall ever seeing them this large in winter.” Norden said this razor clam success tells a much larger story that should have a happy ending for anglers in the upcoming seasons. “This is a great indication that our end of the Pacific Ocean is hitting on all cylinders, as far as ecosystem productivity is concerned,” he said. “I am now convinced next summer’s record Puget Sound humpy run will be even bigger than I thought. Next fall’s coastal coho run, and next winter’s steelhead run will be outstanding.” TURN

Belichick questions workout time limits BY JOHN WAWROW THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


Washington quarterback Keith Price will play the final game of his college career Friday against BYU. this season, senior receiver Kevin Smith marveled: “He has kind of similar stats to [Alabama quarterback] A.J. McCarron right now, and he was in the Heisman run.” And yet there are detractors, those who post half-coherent, malicious Twitter posts during games and those who dismiss the Huskies’ lacking pass protection and the consistent beating Price absorbed since the beginning of the 2011 season while criticizing his play. More informed criticisms are valid, and go something like this: Price, like Jake Locker and Isaiah Stanback before him, never beat Oregon. Price didn’t beat USC. Washington’s two wins against top-10 teams with Price at the helm — Oregon

State and Stanford in 2012 — both came during his less-thanstellar junior season, and were both punctuated more by strong defensive efforts than by Price’s heroics. The best game Price played — 438 yards passing, seven touchdowns (four passing, three rushing) against Baylor in the 2011 Alamo Bowl — the Huskies lost, 67-56. Price deserved precisely zero blame for that defeat, but to some, it is viewed as a microcosm of his career, that of a good college quarterback whose resume lacks a true, signature victory to further endear himself to a sometimes fickle fanbase.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Patriots coach Bill Belichick is blaming recently instituted NFL rules shortening offseason practice time for what he claims to be an increasing number of player injuries. “I’m in favor of total preparation for the players for the season,” Belichick said during a conference call with Buffalo reporters this week in leading up to New England’s home game against the Bills on Sunday. “And I think that’s been changed significantly and, I would say, not necessarily for the better when you look at the injury numbers.”

Less prepared Belichick said players are more vulnerable to being hurt because they’re less prepared, and described the limits placed on offseason workouts — including training camp — as being counterproductive. “Personally, I think that’s taking the wrong approach,” he said. “You have a gap between preparation and competition level. And I think that’s where you see a lot of injuries occurring.” TURN

Dawgs: Price has been injured most of career “He played basically all of last year either injured or hurt, and not a lot of people knew it,” said interim coach Marques Tuiasosopo, who coached quarterbacks this season and played quarterback at Washington from 1997-2000. “And they gave him a lot of flak, from a perception standpoint, for not playing as well.

‘Not 100 percent’ “And maybe he didn’t, but it’s understandable that when you’re not 100 percent, you may not do some of the same things you did before, and you still might be better than what the options are to play. So you play. You gut it out.” That became Price’s reputation, for better or worse. He entered this season relatively healthy, then played a few games through a swollen thumb before injuring his shoulder badly enough in a game against UCLA that he missed the

next week’s game at Oregon State. Via aggressive rehabilitation, Price returned the next week to start in the Apple Cup, and ultimately led Washington to its eighth win of the season, though some fans booed during the first half when the offense sputtered.

defense, you’ve got to make decisions, perform and throw the ball accurately. It’s not just your body. What happens in your mind, it pulls from your focus. “I admire anybody who’s playing well when he’s hurt. You have to be tough at that position.”

‘Part of being a warrior’ Price responded with a touchdown passing and a touchdown rushing in the second half. “It’s part of being a warrior,” Tuiasosopo said. Price’s exploits while hobbled earned the respect of his teammates, and of former coach Steve Sarkisian, who constantly publicly reinforced the idea of Price as a tough customer. That’s something former quarterbacks can appreciate. “I think you respect a guy when he’s banged up in some areas,” said Hugh Millen, a radio analyst for KJR

The Ravens weren’t the first team to encounter tribulation en route to the Super Bowl, and they won’t be the last, but it would be safe to describe the road they took as untraveled. Seemingly entrenched for playoff competition, with a 9-2 record, the Ravens lost four of their five December games. Amid the skid, after a 31-28 defeat in overtime at Washington, Ravens coach John Harbaugh replaced offensive coordinator Cam Cameron with Jim Caldwell. The coaching staff shakeup, announced on Dec. 10, engendered assumptions the Ravens were a mess. Such assumptions were mistaken. “We’re going to hit our stride during the playoffs,” running back Ray Rice said after Baltimore lost to Cincinnati in the regular-season finale. Rice was right, the Ravens hit their stride. They survived a 1-4 record in December, going 3-0 in January and 1-0 in February. Adversity visited the Ravens, and adversity was embraced. Adversity now has moved to Seattle. Stay as long as you want, dearest buttercup, but if you have to cut your stay short and leave in a few days, we’ll understand.

Thunder roll over Knicks THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — Not only was there no Kevin DurantCarmelo Anthony showdown, there wasn’t much of a game, either. The Oklahoma City Thunder made sure of it with the most dominant performance ever by a road team on Christmas. Durant scored 29 points, Russell Westbrook had a triple-double by the middle of the third quarter, and the Thunder rolled to a 123-94 victory Wednesday over the New York Knicks. The 29-point victory was the largest for a road team

on Christmas. “I just know that if we play the way we play, team basketball, Thunder basketball, not too many teams that can beat us,” Westbrook said. The Knicks, without Anthony, weren’t one of them. The matchup between the NBA’s top two scorers was canceled because of Anthony’s sprained left ankle. The Thunder had the Christmas spotlight all to themselves, winning for the 10th time in 11 games. Westbrook finished with 14 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists.

Serena Williams is The Associated Press’ 2013 Female Athlete of the Year, easily winning a vote by news organizations. It’s the third AP award for the tennis star, who also won in 2002 and 2009. Williams went 78-4 in 2013, including a 34-match winning streak and 11 titles. Her French Open and U.S. Open championships raised her Grand Slam total to 17 singles trophies. She was ranked No. 1 from February until the end of the season. Williams received 55 of 96 votes in the AP results announced Wednesday. Brittney Griner, a twotime AP Player of the Year in college basketball and the No. 1 overall pick in April’s WNBA draft, finished second with 14 votes. Swimmer Missy Franklin was next with 10.

est total since 287 in 2008. Those figures, however, don’t include players who have been on injured reserve and released by their teams during the season. It has also been difficult to measure how many regulars have missed games due to injury. The Patriots (11-4) have been beset by a rash of injuries to key contributors this season. They have six starters on IR, including tight end Rob Gronkowski (right knee), offensive tackle Sebastian Vollmer, linebacker Jerod Mayo, defensive lineman Vince Wilford (Achilles tendon) and safety Adrian Wilson. Belichick insists injuries are up. “When you see the number as high as they are, then I don’t think that’s a randomness that’s been two years in a row,” Belichick said. “I’ve got to think there’s some correlation there.”





Much caregiving ends with ‘What now?’ IT’S THE DAY after Christmas, so I’ve decided to spare us all yet another unsolicited spectacle of introspection about whether to write another column about caregiving and just do it; particularly in view of the fact that you did it — again. This is an email I received last August after I’d gone on about we “caregiver-types” tend, out of necessity, to make it up as we go along, but this has a different twist. Listen: “I was caregiver for my mom for 10 years. She died Feb. 8 of an upper GI bleed. She made the choice to have medical intervention withheld after ten years of dealing with lengthy health problems including an amputation. This did not come as a surprise to my sister and myself, as our baby brother had died Jan. 9 of complications of an amputation. I have been caregiver for my husband for 27 years and he died July 1 unexpectedly in his sleep. Believe me, when caregiving is done, you wonder what now? I don’t know what my purpose is in life. I have no focus and no reason to put one foot in front of the other. I am trying really hard

PA Garden Club awards its Green Thumb award for fall PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

Port Angeles Garden Club member Mary Flo Bruce, left, presents the club’s Green Thumb Award for fall to Nicole Criel.

A bed of Rainbow River Rocks, which sparkle during rains, flow in between curved plantings. The backyard has plenty of open space for children’s games but also features a seating area for conversation and a firepit. Hanging off her storage unit are fully mature kiwi climbers. As you walk around her yard, there are “surprises that meet the eye in an array of stone sculptures and yard art,” the club said. Criel’s garden advice is “to not be afraid to try something if you have a vision, and, of course, a hard worker to help is always handy.” The Port Angeles Garden Club meets at First Presbyterian Church, 139 W. Eighth St., at 10 a.m. the third Monday of each month from September to June. Interested gardeners are encouraged to attend.

PORT ANGELES — The autumn colors found earlier this fall at Nicole Criel’s home at 1128 W. Eighth St. earned her the Port Angeles Garden Club’s Green Thumb award for fall, the club said. During the height of fall, her yard was infused with reds, from her Japanese maples to Japanese blood grass. Golds in the backyard from a weeping birch contrasted with colorful cherry trees. With this mix of fall colors are lush evergreens. Criel, a housewife and student at Peninsula College, has worked on her yard for more than a year. She wanted something peaceful and low-maintenance, so she started selectively clearing plants, scrubs and trees that had out grown their space, then amending the soil.

Postage going up, but it won’t be permanent BY BRADLEY KLAPPER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — Mailing a letter is about to get a little more expensive. Regulators on Tuesday approved a temporary price hike of 3 cents for a firstclass stamp, bringing the charge to 49 cents a letter in an effort to help the Postal Service recover from severe mail decreases brought on by the 2008 economic downturn. Many consumers won’t feel the price increase immediately. Forever stamps, good for first-class postage whatever the future rate, can be purchased at the lower price until the new rate is effective Jan. 26. The higher rate will last no more than two years, allowing the Postal Service to recoup $2.8 billion in losses. By a 2-1 vote, the independent Postal Regulatory Commission rejected a request to make the price hike permanent, though inflation over the next 24 months may make it so.

‘Just long enough’ The surcharge “will last just long enough to recover the loss,” Commission Chairman Ruth Y. Goldway said. Bulk mail, periodicals and package service rates will rise 6 percent, a decision that drew immediate consternation from the mail industry. Its groups have opposed any price increase beyond the current 1.7 percent rate of inflation, saying


Packages wait to be sorted in a post office in Atlanta in February. Regulators on Tuesday approved a price hike of 3 cents for a first-class stamp, bringing the charge to 49 cents a letter. charities using mass mailings and bookstores competing with online retailer Amazon would be among those who suffer. Greeting card companies also have criticized the plans. “This is a counterproductive decision,” said Mary G. Berner, president of the Association of Magazine Media. “It will drive more customers away from using the Postal Service and will have ripple effects through our economy — hurting consumers, forcing layoffs and impacting businesses.” Berner said her organization will consider appealing the decision before the U.S. Court of Appeals.

For consumers who have cut back on their use of mail for correspondence, the rate increase may have little impact on their pocketbooks.

Few mail-users “I don’t know a whole lot of people who truly, with the exception of packages, really use snail mail anymore,” said Kristin Johnson, a Green Bay, Wis., resident who was shopping in downtown Anchorage, Alaska, while visiting relatives and friends. “It’s just so rare that I actually mail anything at this point.” The Postal Service is an independent agency that

does not depend on tax money for its operations but is subject to congressional control. Under federal law, it can’t raise prices more than the rate of inflation without approval from the commission. The service said it lost $5 billion in the last fiscal year and has been trying to get Congress to pass legislation to help with its financial woes, including an end to Saturday mail delivery and reduced payments on retiree health benefits. The figures through Sept. 30 were actually an improvement for the agency from a $15.9 billion loss in 2012.

$ Briefly . . . New E9-1-1 tax to take effect Jan. 1 OLYMPIA — Consumers of prepaid wireless phones and minutes will see a new charge on the sales receipt starting Jan. 1. That’s when a new state law takes effect that requires retailers of prepaid wireless services to collect the tax that supports enhanced 9-1-1 services, or E9-1-1. Wireless companies already collect and remit the tax. Cellphone users under contract pay this tax on each month’s bill. But for prepaid wireless users, the tax was not part of their purchase of phones or minutes. Now, prepaid wireless users will be charged the $1 fee at the cash register to be collected by retailers. Local governments will receive 70 cents of the tax, and the state will receive 25 cents. The new law will allow retailers to charge 5 cents to cover their cost of collecting the tax until July 1, 2018. The tax supports the technology that enables local 9-1-1 emergency services to pinpoint the location of cellphone users who call for help. The E9-1-1 tax is in addition to state and local retail sales taxes. The tax comes as part of House Bill 1971, a larger telecommunications bill passed by the state Legislature during the 2013 session.

Founder sells stock NEW YORK — BlackBerry co-founder Michael Lazaridis has trimmed his stake in the troubled smartphone pioneer to just below 5 percent after selling 3.5 million shares during the past two days. The sales disclosed in a Tuesday regulatory filing came after BlackBerry Ltd. announced a third-quarter loss of $4.4 billion last week. The setback marked the latest sign of the company’s deepening distress as BlackBerry’s products fall farther behind the iPhone and devices running on Android software. Lazaridis previously owned a 5.7 percent stake in the Waterloo, Ontario, company that he once ran. Lazaridis and BlackBerry co-founder Douglas Fregin said they were mulling a bid to buy the company in October. But BlackBerry in November said it had abandoned a bid to sell itself.

Chrysler stalls, won’t take gas Dear Doctor: I own a 2006 Chrysler 300C with 28,350 miles. As I pulled away from the gas pump, I slowed down, and the car stalled. This had never happened before, but the car started right up, and I continued on my way. As I continued, each time I stopped for a traffic sign the car stalled, but started right up. The next event was three weeks ago when I went to fill the tank it would not accept fuel. The nozzle kept shutting off, as if I had a full tank (at the time it was 1/4 full). I tried another pump, and even a different gas station, all with the same results. Had to keep clicking the nozzle to slowly fill the tank. After this fill-up the car had the same stalling problem again, except this time it just cranked and cranked. How should I proceed?

Dear Doctor: I own a 2010 Corvette C6. Can I set the tire sensor monitors without going to a dealer when I change my seasonal and/or race tires? Will the Corvette learn the psi with just using a tire gauge in correct sequence? Angela Dear Angela: Of all automakers, General Motors has the easiest tire monitoring system to reset. You should be able to put the system into the learning mode and then start letting air (approximately 5 pounds). Starting with the left front, right front, right rear and left rear. The horn will beep once, then go to the next tire, and then at the last tire the horn will beep twice. You can now push the ignition key off.
