Research to aid Elwha Insect collection en route to lab BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
They’ve been snatched from the air with hand-held nets and scooped from the waters of the Elwha River. Now, between 600,000 and 2 million individual insects and certain plants collected from the Elwha River Valley before dam removal are being processed and cataloged by students of Washington State University. The goal of the collection is to establish a baseline of the types and populations of insects that lived in the river valley during the last century, when lakes were formed by dams, said
Jerry Freilich, research coordinator for Olympic National Park. That would set the stage for future researchers to take similar collections from the river valley after it has had time to recover and see what has changed, Freilich explained. “It’s a before and after experiment,” Freilich said. Removal of the Elwha Dam was finished in March 2011; the Glines Canyon Dam has been chopped down to a fraction of its original 210 feet and is expected to be fully removed next year.
blocked salmon passage. Contractors with the National Park Service began work on removing the dams in September 2011. The Elwha Dam was built in 1913. The Glines Canyon Dam, built in 1927 upriver from its older cousin, is expected to be completely gone by September.
Two Clallam County school districts — Port Angeles and Sequim — are proposing plans to tear down and replace their high schools. There is a hefty price tag for modern high school construction. The Sequim School District’s 20-member Citizens’ Facilities Planning Committee recommended earlier this month that the district replace the high school with an $87 million new building. On Dec. 12, the Port Angeles School District’s 60-member Long Range Facilities Task Force recommended that the district replace Port Angeles High School as soon as possible. The Port Angeles task force did not investigate the costs involved in building a new school, and there are no estimates for the size or price of a new school at this time. “We are not as far along in our planning as Sequim,” said Superintendent Jane Pryne.

School boards in both districts are expected to begin discussions in January about whether they want to move forward with replacement and to create a time line for when they may seek funding for construction — sourced from both bond questions before local voters and state construction grants. Both boards also are considering remodeling or replacing other district buildings, and Sequim is considering construction of a third
elementary school. As early 20th century and Boomer-era schools age and deteriorate, districts across Washington state have been replacing old buildings with new. In 2010, Shoreline School District voters passed a $150 million bond measure to replace the district’s Shorewood and Shorecrest high schools. Another $35 million is expected in matching funds from the state. In Northshore School District, Woodinville High School’s $72 million replacement will be a three-story building with 49 classrooms and a new theater. In Tacoma, voters approved funding for the $99 million replacements for two middle schools.
Quillayute Valley Only one school district in Clallam County has built a high school this century — Quillayute Valley School District in Forks. Forks High School, built in two phases in 2000 and 2012, replaces a 1923 school that had aged past its usable life. In 2009, Forks-area voters approved a Quillayute Valley School District bond issue for $11,500,000 for the construction of the Forks High School Addition Project, and in 2010, the district received $8,808,711.27 in state assistance for the construction of the project. The 47,500-square-foot east wing of the school was replaced in 2000, and the 39,000-squarefoot addition and a 3,000-squarefoot vocational training building were completed in 2013 for $12 million. When the addition of the west wing, the new Forks High School reached its final size of 86,500 square feet, designed for the district’s brick-and-mortar high school enrollment of about 300 students.

Project sets out to honor late bluesmen BLUES GUITARIST TOMMY Bankhead rubbed shoulders with some of the genre’s royalty, from Howlin’ Wolf and Elmore James to Albert King and Sonny Boy Williamson. But visitors to the overgrown St. Louis cemetery where Bankhead was buried more than a Bankhead decade ago would never know his musical legacy. Or his name. Be it neglect, inattention or hard times, Bankhead’s family never added a grave marker to his burial plot. That will soon change thanks to the Killer Blues Headstone Project, a nonprofit effort to bring belated recognition to longforgotten blues musicians. Though the group has posthumously honored musicians as far away as California, its efforts are concentrated in a fertile blues corridor that stretches from the Mississippi Delta through St. Louis, north to Chicago and Michigan. “These guys gave so much to America via music,” said Aaron Pritchard, the project’s vice president. “They deserve a headstone.” Several years ago, he met a kindred spirit in Steven Salter of Whitehall, Mich., whose own search for his musical idols began with a detour to the Chicago area while en route to the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.

Aaron Pritchard wipes off a headstone after laying the marker on the previously unmarked grave of blues musician Aaron Sparks in Crestwood, Mo. After stopping at the graves of McKinley Morganfield, better known as Muddy Waters, and Chester Burnett (aka Howlin’ Wolf), Salter found an unmarked grave for blues pianist Otis Spann. A letter bemoaning Spann’s fate to a blues magazine ignited a successful fundraiser Spann and convinced Salter to launch the headstone project in 2008. “I figured if I didn’t get to see them while they were alive, I could at least stop by their gravesites and pay my respects,” the 62-year-old said. “When I got there, there was nothing but a piece of grass.” While heartfelt, the project’s efforts remain modest. They have laid 22 headstones, with several more completed but awaiting placement. The flat grave markers cost between $300 and $400 each and are engraved with the artist’s
dates of birth and death, along with images of keyboards, saxophones, musical notes or guitars.

WOJCIECH KILAR, 81, a Polish pianist and composer of classical music and scores for many films, including Roman Polanski’s Oscar-winning “The Pianist” and Francis Ford Coppola’s “Bram Stoker’s Dracula,” died Sunday. The composer died in his hometown of Katowice, Poland, following a long illness, according to Mr. Kilar Jerzy Korin 2011 nowicz, head of the Association of Polish Composers. A modest man who often avoided public attention, Mr. Kilar’s main love was composing symphonies and concertos, and he always put that above movies, even though he wrote the scores of dozens of films. He drew inspiration from Polish folk music and religious prayers and hymns, which he had
learned in Latin as an altar boy. But it was film music, especially for Coppola’s 1992 erotic horror movie, that brought this prolific vanguard composer to the world’s attention and commissions from other celebrity directors, including Jane Campion and her “Portrait of a Lady.” Mr. Kilar once said the three criteria that made him write film music were, in this order: the name of the director, the salary and the script.
T.I.’s Grand Hustle was killed in a shooting at a bar in Montgomery, Ala., Saturday morning. Mr. Thomas and Kimberle Johnson, 21, of Montgomery died after gunfire erupted at The Rose bar around 1 a.m., police said. Police in Alabama are investigating the shooting that also wounded six others inside the business. DJ Frank White, who managed the rapper’s career, said Mr. Thomas had two young children and a third on the way.
1938 (75 years ago) Charles Stroup of Carlsborg narrowly escaped serious injury when his automobile skidded on icy pavement and plunged off the Olympic Highway on the east Morse Creek hill east of Port Angeles, Clallam County Sheriff Charles Kemp reported. Stroup kept his car upright as it went over the bank and tumbled about 50 feet, finally overturning as it hit a stump and landing upside down. The accident occurred at a point on the hill where the bank is comparatively low. Had it happened higher, the results probably would have been very serious, Kemp declared.

Federal health market passes 1 million mark Healthcare.gov sees significant sign-up surge BY JOSH LEDERMAN THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

16 killed in bombing of Russian train station BY VLADIMIR ISACHENKOV THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
MOSCOW — A suicide bomber struck a busy railway station in southern Russia on Sunday, killing at least 15 people and wounding scores more, officials said, in a stark reminder of the threat Russia is facing as it prepares to host February’s Olympics in Sochi. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the bombing in Volgograd, but it came sev-
eral months after Chechen rebel leader Doku Umarov called for new attacks against civilian targets in Russia, including the Sochi Games.
History of attacks Suicide bombings have rocked Russia for years, but many have been contained to the North Caucasus, the center of an insurgency seeking an Islamist state in the region. Until recently, Volgograd was
not a typical target, but the city formerly known as Stalingrad has now been struck twice in two months — suggesting militants may be using the transportation hub as a renewed way of showing their reach.
No small security task The bombing highlights the daunting security challenge Russia will face in fulfilling its pledge to make the Sochi Games the “safest Olympics in history.”

A BOMB EXPLODED outside a military intelligence building northeast of Cairo on Sunday, wounding four people and damaging the structure as protests and security scares roiled the country just weeks before a key vote. The bombing struck the military intelligence building in Anshas, a village 30 miles northeast of Cairo that is home to number of military facilities, including an air base and Egypt’s first experimental nuclear reactor. AP Television News footage showed debris littering the ground and a large gash in one of its walls.

Christmas stabbing EVERETT — Everett police say a man who staggered into a grocery store and collapsed had been stabbed with a fillet knife he gave his girlfriend for Christmas. The Daily Herald newspaper reported that the 25-year-old Shoreline man had an 11-inch gash across
his throat as well as stab wounds to his chest and hands when he entered the store Thursday night. Store employees pressed cloth to his wounds, and the man was taken to Harborview Medical Center, where his condition was listed as stable. Police said his 18-year-old live-in girlfriend admitted attacking him in their car after a fishing trip and said she did it because he had threatened her.

Econoline van, and picture that pretty well filled up with boxes [of jars],” Freilich said. “It’s a lot of stuff.” The initial sorting is only the beginning of the project, as most of the specimens will likely have to be sent to experts specializing in specific species for identification, Freilich said. This would involve specialists from universities across the country, Freilich said, such as experts in tiny aquatic flies from Colorado State University and Brigham Young University in Utah. “And it’s going to be five years [or so] before some of this stuff even gets identified,” Freilich said. The project might not have moved forward at all had Freilich not teamed up with Zack to beginning sorting the massive insect collection. Between 2008 and 2009, the collection work, lead by UW professor Ted Pietsch, was funded by a $200,000 National Science Foundation grant and a $70,000 grant from the National Park Service’s biological resource management division, Freilich said. The grants funded the collection and some early processing of the samples, Freilich said, but ran out before the vast majority of the specimens could even be removed from their protective alcohol baths. So the collection sat in limbo, stored at the UW
campus until Freilich got in touch with Zack about the WSU entomology department taking over the cataloging work, since UW does not have such a department. Zack said a $30,000, twoyear grant from a private foundation was secured to fund the work.
Meeting in spring Next spring, Zack said he intends to meet with biologists, entomologists and other researchers on the Elwha dam removal and restoration project to discuss how the collection can best be used to study impacts on the Elwha ecosystem. “That’s the beautiful comparison you’re going to be able to make, when you do take that reservoir system and turn it back,” Zack said. The collection also will provide researchers of projects not yet considered access to an immense catalog of the Elwha River Valley creatures. “This material should have tremendous biological value for people doing all sorts of study,” Zack said. “For this Olympic material, this constitutes an immediate need because this resource doesn’t exist anywhere else.”

Project urges fun every day of January BY DIANE URBANI

“I’m going to either be making a piece of doll house furniture per day or writing a poem per day,” Angie said. “It can be anything! Make a pet rock per day . . . Make a necklace per day! Whatever is your ‘thing.’” About two dozen people have signed up already, with a variety of plans from haiku-writing to daily photography. And if you can’t sign up before Wednesday, Jan. 1, just sign up soon after, Angie added. “We want as many people as are interested to participate,” she said.
PORT ANGELES — A trio of artists intend to transfuse Port Angeles with fun — when the town needs it most. The Fun-A-Day project and show is about to begin on New Year’s Day, with Angie and Clay River and Wayne King, all of Port Angeles, determined to have fun every single day of January. The trio invites everybody in and around the city to join them in Fun-A-Day. They’ve opened a Facebook page, Fun-A-Day Port Angeles, where it’s free to sign up for the project; the Rivers and King can also be reached by email- Fun-A-Day show ing email@example.com.

Full health report for Forks’ House, Senate shelter dogs expected today set to return to D.C. Jan. 6
BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
FORKS — A full veterinary report on the 124 dogs — and one python — from the Olympic Animal Sanctuary will be complete today, said Robert Misseri, president of Smithtown, N.Y.based Guardians of Rescue, which is organizing the eventual distribution of the dogs to other rescue groups. No media or television cameras have been allowed onto the Rescued Unwanted Furry Friends Foundation (RUFFF) shelter in Golden Valley, Ariz., about 23 miles east of Bullhead City, where the dogs are being kept while waiting for other rescue organizations to take them, Misseri said. “The biggest challenge is being in a remote part of the U.S. with limited supplies,” he said Sunday. The property where the dogs are located is an hour from the nearest store that carries the kind of hardware needed to build 124 kennels. “It’s just crazy down here. If we could have done this in Forks, we wouldn’t be in this predicament,” Misseri said.

MOHAVE VALLEY DAILY NEWS
Dr. Dalen Sites, of Mohave Valley Animal Clinic, along with vet tech Jeri Gilmore, performs an exam on one of the 124 Olympic Animal Sanctuary dogs that arrived Christmas Eve at RUFFF, a rescue sanctuary in Golden On Dec. 21, OAS founder Valley, Ariz.
Getting on the road
Markwell is expected to depart the RUFFF property today or tomorrow, Misseri said. Many of the dogs at the shelter are considered violent and unadoptable. Misseri said that most of the dogs have proven to be friendly toward people and can be handled by volunteers but cannot be placed with other dogs, complicating matters for kenneling. “If we could put five dogs in one kennel, it would be easier,” he said.
More kennels needed The wood transport crates are being removed from the trailer and will be left at the shelter, some of which may be used as temporary shelter for dogs that cannot be safely secured in the hurricane fence kennels built by volunteers, he said. As of Sunday, Misseri reported there were still not enough outdoor kennels for the dogs, and Guardians volunteers were having difficulty finding enough sup-
plies to complete the kennels. Misseri, who is a producer for “The Diamond Collar,” a new reality TV show about a mobster-turned-groomer and dog rescuer, said the show has already wrapped up filming and was not involved in the OAS rescue. “The show had nothing to do with [the OAS rescue] at all. There is no filming,” he said. Misseri was a member of the cast of another rescue reality show, “Rescue Ink Unleashed,” which ran for a single season in 2009, on the National Geographic Channel. “Rescue Ink” featured bikers who put their checkered pasts behind them to operate an animal rescue organization.

guardiansofrescue.org. Qualified rescue organizations willing to take one or more of the dogs can contact the organization at email@example.com.
RUFFF The location chosen for the meeting, RUFFF, which currently has mostly elderly or medically difficult dogs, is also having difficulties. On Dec. 11, the shelter asked for donations to cover $15,000 in back payments on the property where the kennel is located. According to posts on the RUFFF Facebook page, the shelter received a notice stating it needed to make the payment or the property would be sold. About a third of the amount has been donated, RUFFF announced Saturday. The Guardians of Rescue has worked with RUFFF in the past but is not involved in the donations to keep the shelter open, Misseri said.

Steve Markwell loaded the dogs into a 53-foot tractor trailer equipped with builtin wood kennels, then called Guardians of Rescue to tell them he was on the road. A day later, plans were solidified for Markwell to meet Guardians volunteers at RUFFF, but the location was kept under wraps until Friday, when the dogs were legally transferred to the Guardians. Protesters began gathering at the 4,000-square-foot warehouse at 1021 Russell Road in Forks on Dec. 2 and picketed the sanctuary 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 Facebook campaign to shut the facility down for more than a year. Markwell has denied mistreating the animals. He has not returned calls from the Peninsula Daily News since he left the Forks sanctuary.

Help a neighbor: It’s not too late End 2013 on high note by giving to Home Fund BY JOHN BREWER PUBLISHER AND EDITOR PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
AS FRIENDS AND families get ready for New Year’s Eve, compassionate Peninsula Daily News readers continue to help their neighbors through the “hand up, not a handout” Peninsula Home Fund. Tuesday is the end of our holiday season campaign — and while the fund never closes, Tuesday is the last day to make a donation and get a tax deduction for 2013. For 25 years, the Home Fund has helped thousands of families in Jefferson and Clallam counties. It has demonstrated, time and again, how even a seemingly modest sum of money can relieve, or vastly improve, the lives of families across the North Olympic Peninsula — thanks to our readers opening their hearts. All contributions, whether $100, $5,000 or $10, are greatly appreciated and needed, and are fully IRS tax-deductible. To donate online today using a credit card, push the “Home Fund — Click Here to Donate” button at www.peninsuladailynews. com. Or go directly to the donation webpage — https://secure.peninsula dailynews.com/homefund. You can also use the donation coupon on this page — and mail it with a check dated today or Tuesday. If you wish to make your donation by phone, or have any questions about the fund, call John Brewer, PDN publisher and editor, at 360-417-3500. Or email him at john. brewer@peninsuladaily news.com. You can make a difference. Our thanks to all of you who have donated to this year’s Home Fund campaign. As of our last deposit at First Federal on Thursday,
Give voice to your heart A GIFT OF any size is welcome. The Peninsula Home Fund has never been a campaign of heavy hitters. If you can contribute only a few dollars, please don’t hesitate because you think it won’t make a difference. Every gift makes a difference, regardless of its size. To donate, write a check to “Peninsula Home Fund” and attach it to the coupon on this page. Mail both items to Peninsula Home Fund, Peninsula Daily News, P.O. Box 1330, Port Angeles, WA 98362. You can also donate online by credit card. Visit www.peninsuladailynews.com, then click near the middle of the home page on the box reading “Peninsula Daily News Home Fund — Click Here to Donate.” Or use the QR code on the right to access the donation page with your smartphone. All contributions are fully IRS tax-deductible. The fund’s IRS number, under the auspices of Olympic Community Action Programs — OlyCAP — is 91-0814319. Whether you donate by coupon or online, you will receive a written thank-you and acknowledgment of your contribution. To delay may mean to forget.
$216,745 from people and organizations in Jefferson and Clallam counties had been donated to the Home Fund. The $268,137 raised by the Home Fund in 2012 allowed OlyCAP to help more than 3,100 families, many with children, and individuals in 2013.
Your neighbors These are your neighbors, with nowhere else to turn. These are local people that our partner, nonprofit Olympic Community Action Programs, wouldn’t have been able to assist otherwise. With heavy demand expected again in 2014, only a few dollars are left from last year’s campaign and will go with the new
money right away to make sure no one falls through the cracks during the dark days of winter, the most demanding time of the year. All the money collected for the Home Fund stays in Jefferson and Clallam counties. And 100 percent goes to OlyCAP, the Peninsula’s No. 1 emergency care agency in our two counties. It oversees the Home Fund for the PDN, screening the applicants and distributing the funds. The Home Fund is not a welfare program. The average amount of help this year was about $69.86 per family, with a limit of one grant from the fund within 12 months. But even though the dollar figure is small — some call it “shoestring philan-
thropy” — the impact can be big, in huge, life-changing ways: Hot meals for seniors. A bus card for a job seeker barely scraping by. Helping cover back rent for a family hoping to stave off eviction. Eyeglasses for a struggling high school student. Energy and transportation needs, warm winter coats for kids, home repairs for the low-income, needed prescription drugs, dental work, safe and drug-free temporary housing . . . the list goes on and on. Instances of help are
designed to get an individual or family through a crisis — and every effort is made to put them back on the path to self-sufficiency. That’s the “hand up, not a handout” focus of the fund. In many instances, Peninsula Home Fund case managers at OlyCAP work with individuals or families to develop a plan to become financially stable — and avoid a recurrence of the emergency that prompted aid from the fund. And, as needed, Peninsula Home Fund contributions often are used in conjunction with money from
other agencies, enabling OlyCAP to stretch the value of the contribution. To apply for a grant from the Peninsula Home Fund, phone OlyCAP at 360-4524726 (Clallam County) or 360-385-2571 (Jefferson County). While most of the Peninsula Home Fund money is raised every year between Thanksgiving and Dec. 31, the fund is open year-round. Donations of any amount always are welcome. Many people send gifts to the fund to mark a special occasion or remember a loved one.
New 1980 images recently uncovered of Mount St. Helens BY TOM VOGT THE COLUMBIAN
VANCOUVER, Wash. — They’re brand new images of a Northwest icon that disappeared more than 33 years ago — the conical summit of Mount St. Helens. R e i d Blackburn took the photographs in April 1980 during a flight over the simmering volcano. Blackburn When he got back to The Columbian studio, Blackburn set that roll of film aside. It was never developed.
Died in eruption On May 18, 1980 — about five weeks later — Blackburn died in the volcanic blast that obliterated the mountain peak. Those unprocessed black-and-white images spent the next three decades coiled inside that film canister. The Columbian’s photo assistant Linda Lutes recently discovered the roll in a studio storage box, and
it was finally developed. When Fay Blackburn had a chance to see new examples of her husband’s work, she recalled how he was feeling left out during all that volcano excitement. “He did express his frustration. He was on a night rotation,” said Fay Blackburn, The Columbian’s editorial page assistant. While other staffers were booking flights to photograph Mount St. Helens, “He was shooting high school sports.” When his shift rotated around, “He was excited to get into the air,” Fay Blackburn said. Columbian microfilm shows Reid Blackburn was credited with aerial photos of Mount St. Helens that ran April 7 and April 10. He would have shot that undeveloped roll on one of those assignments. Maybe he didn’t feel the images were up to his standards. Maybe he didn’t trust the camera; it was the only roll he shot with that camera on the flight. But he would have had more than one camera, said former Columbian photog-
rapher Jerry Coughlan, who worked with Blackburn at the newspaper. “We all had two or three cameras” set up for a variety of possibilities. Riding in a small plane, “You didn’t want to be fumbling for lenses,” Coughlan said. Former Columbian reporter Bill Dietrich teamed up with Blackburn during one of those early April flights over the volcano.
‘Great eye’ “Reid was a remarkable gentleman, with the emphasis on gentle,” Dietrich said. “He was an interested human being, with a great eye. He saw stuff. “As a reporter, that’s a great thing about working with photographers. They see things,” Dietrich said. “The newsroom was so electrified when the volcano first awoke. It was an international story in the backyard of a regional newspaper,” said Dietrich, who now writes historical fiction and Northwest environmental nonfiction. “We were all pumped up and fascinated.”
REID BLACKBURN/THE COLUMBIAN
This 1980 photo shows an image of Mount St. Helens taken by The Columbian photographer Reid Blackburn a few weeks before the May 19, 1980, eruption, in which Blackburn died. The May 18, 1980, eruption still is a historical landmark, as well as a huge scientific event: That’s why the roll of film was discovered a few weeks ago. A photo editor working on a geology book contacted Lutes. She’d come across a Columbian photo of a logjam on the Cowlitz River, taken on the day of the eruption, on a website and wanted the image.
Roll discovered Lutes sorted through a couple of boxes labeled “Mount St. Helens” and tried — unsuccessfully — to find that film. She did find a ripped paper bag, with Blackburn’s negatives spilling out. “I thought I’d better put it
in a nice envelope so it wouldn’t be ruined,” Lutes said. “Then I found that roll. I thought, ‘Wouldn’t it be cool if we found what was on it?’” Troy Wayrynen, The Columbian’s photo editor, agreed. But with the switch to digital imagery, “I wasn’t sure if anyone even processed black-and-white film anymore,” Wayrynen said. He took it to a Portland, Ore., photo supply company, which outsources black-andwhite film to a freelancer. When he got it back and saw the film-sized images, “I was astonished to see how well the film showed up,” Wayrynen said. And then there was the content. Blackburn could have photographed anything
on that roll, Wayrynen said. “When I saw aerials of Mount St. Helens — a longgone landscape — It was beyond my expectations,” he said. This is the second time people have tried to coax images from film that Blackburn left behind. The first occasion was shortly after his death. Columbian colleagues, including Coughlan and Dave Kern, now assistant metro editor, visited the blast zone and recovered some of the personal gear from the car where Blackburn was sitting when the volcano erupted. One of the items was a camera, loaded with a roll of film. But the film was too damaged to yield anything.

2013 words for the Dumpster WITH THE LAST tick of 2013, let’s throw out the most annoying, overused and abused words of the year. A few of these terms, “twerking” or “stay Timothy classy,” die a natural Egan death when someone like John McCain starts using them — the aural equivalent of a combover. Others need a push. Many of these words originated in the food world and would have been perfectly fine had they not migrated to the general population. Some came out of mid-management office talk. What these hapless clichés have in common is this: They have been so diluted by misuse that they’ve lost their meaning. And like bad holiday sweaters and Sarah Palin outrage, the following list is highly selective. To the Dumpster:
play for clueless consumers who buy something simply because they think it’s healthy. Red Bull boasts of being gluten-free. So is paint thinner.

For the fifth year in a row, “whatever” was just rated the nation’s most annoying word in a survey done by the Marist Institute for Public Opinion, beating out the hardy perennials “like” and “you know” and “just saying.”
24/7 No longer a byword for helpful availability, 24/7 evokes bad hours, poor pay and some customer service rep in India trying to explain an HDMI cable at 3 a.m. My bank is 24/7, or so they say; after a half-hour discussion with someone from this stellar institution, the “associate” said I should Google the problem.

Social Security more politically secure PROPOSALS TO RAISE Social Security benefits are a refreshing antidote to portrayals of the program as a mere drain on the Treasury. Details of some such plans are trou- Froma bling — for Harrop reasons I’ll go into — but the change in tone is most welcome. Democratic Sens. Tom Harkin of Iowa and Sherrod Brown of Ohio are leading a campaign to raise benefits by about $70 a month and alter the costof-living adjustments to the beneficiary’s advantage. The higher payments would be covered by raising the income cap, which is now $113,700, on paying Social Security taxes. Interesting ideas all, especially raising the income limit. This alone could end the concern that in 2033, Social Security may be unable to maintain the current level of benefits. But most importantly, it counters the nonsense that Social Security is in dire trouble. A completely self-sufficient program, workers and their employers pay for every penny of it. The accounting for the trust fund is cheesy, that’s true, but
there is no way the Treasury won’t pay back the money it borrowed from it (again, real dollars collected via Social Security taxes). Why it was a short eight years ago that Republicans were trying to launch the dismantling of Social Security through a privatization scheme. Recall former President George W. Bush pushing for a plan to let future retirees put their Social Security contributions into the tender hands of Wall Street. There was much bravado comparing the returns on private investments to “returns” on the government program. All this ignored the reality that Social Security is insurance, not an investment. And it does other things, like help the children of workers who have died. At the time, stocks were booming and house prices bubbling. Bush reassured workers that he would not let them invest their retirement savings in risky places. Then the bottom fell out. Prices for the finest blue chip stocks cratered. Imagine the fallout had Bush’s plan come to fruition. An enraged Joe Public, seeing his government-approved stock portfolio shot to smithereens, would have descended on Washington, D.C., along with a million lawyers demanding to be made whole.

Uncertainty looms as Colo. pot sales begin Shops ready to open on Wednesday BY KRISTEN WYATT THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
DENVER — A gleaming white Apple store of weed is how Andy Williams sees his new Denver marijuana dispensary. Two floors of pot-growing rooms will have windows showing the shopping public how the mind-altering plant is grown. Shoppers will be able to peruse drying marijuana buds and see pot trimmers at work separating the valuable flowers from the less-prized stems and leaves. “It’s going to be all white and beautiful,” the 45-yearold ex-industrial engineer explained, excitedly gesturing around his business Medicine Man.
Fortunes invested As Colorado prepares to be the first in the nation to allow recreational pot sales, opening Wednesday, hopeful retailers like Williams are investing their fortunes into the legal recreational pot world — all for a chance to build even bigger ones in a fledgling industry that faces an uncertain future. Officials in Colorado and Washington, the other state where recreational pot goes on sale in mid-2014, as well as activists, policymakers and governments from

Different strains of pot are displayed for sale at Medicine Man marijuana dispensary in Denver. Medicine Man was among the first batch of Denver businesses to receive their licenses to legally sell recreational marijuana. around the U.S. and across the world will not be the only ones watching the experiment unfold. So too will the U.S. Department of Justice, which for now is not fighting to shut down the industries. “We are building an impressive showcase for the world, to show them this is an industry,” Williams said.
Banned since 1937 Will it be a showcase for a safe, regulated pot industry that generates hundreds of millions of dollars each year and saves money on locking up drug criminals, or one that will prove, once and for all, that the federal government has been right to ban pot since 1937? The 1936 propaganda film “Reefer Madness” warned the public about a plant capable of turning
people into mindless criminals. Voters in Colorado and Washington approved recreational pot in 2012, sold in part on spending less to lock up drug criminals and the potential for new tax dollars to fund state programs. Activists predicated a legal showdown. That didn’t happen. In August, the DOJ said it wouldn’t sue so long as the states met an eight-point standard that includes keeping pot out of other states and away from children, criminal cartels and federal property. For now, all the focus is on 2014. This being Colorado, there will be more than a few joints lit up on New Year’s Eve. “Are we ready to go? Yes,” Williams said. “What’s going to happen? I don’t know.”

SEATTLE — After failing on two previous occasions, the Seattle Seahawks finally ensured the road to the Super Bowl in the NFC goes through the Pacific Northwest. Malcolm Smith returned an interception 37 yards for a touchdown, Marshawn Lynch added a 2-yard scoring run and the Seahawks clinched the NFC West title and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs with a 27-9 victory over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday. Seattle (13-3) matched the franchise record for wins in a season and finally wrapped up the No. 1 seed after losses to San Francisco and last week to Arizona, which snapped a 14-game home winning streak. Russell Wilson finished 15 of 23 for 172 yards.
Tate’s TD seals it Seattle capped the victory with a 47-yard touchdown pass from Wilson to Golden Tate early in the fourth quarter that lacked the unsportsmanlike wave that got Tate flagged on a similar TD reception in St. Louis earlier this season. Tate finished with eight catches for 129 yards, both career highs in his final regular-season game before he becomes a free agent. With home-field advantage wrapped up, there might be a few postseason games still to come for Tate and the Seahawks. The only other time Seattle had home-field advantage came in 2005, the only time the Seahawks have reached the Super Bowl. They’ll get a week of rest before hosting in the divisional round, and they might need the time off after a pair of key injuries Sunday.
The painful price of victory Defensive tackle Brandon Mebane left in the second half with a hip injury, but more costly could be a lower left leg injury sustained by backup tight end Luke Willson early in the fourth quarter. Willson was taken off the field on a cart with an air cast on his leg. But the injuries didn’t mute the celebration after the favorite in the NFC most of the season finally clinched everything it had sought. Smith got Seattle started with his interception return for a touchdown early in the first quarter a week after he was tackled at the 3-yard line trying to score on an interception return. Lynch finished with 97 yards on 23 carries, his best game since running for a season-best 145 yards against Atlanta in Week 10. Seattle continued to struggle on third down, going 4 of 13, but a lack of discipline from the Rams helped out the Seahawks. The Rams (7-9) were penalized 12 times for 87 yards and lost their composure on defense late in the third quarter. St. Louis was flagged for four personal foul penalties in the span of two plays — two on Alec Ogletree and two on Kendall Langford. TURN
Big fourth quarter helps Redskins top Chimacum BY MICHAEL CARMAN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND — With players crashing to the court for loose balls and possession arrows solving 50-50 tie-ups playing an important role, Port Townsend won a hard-fought rivalry game over Chimacum.
The Redskins outscored the Cowboys 18-9 in the fourth quarter to win 478-38 in the final game of the Crush in the Slush tournament at Port Townsend High School on Saturday. An inspired Chimacum team forced several early Redskins
turnovers and ran out to a 6-0 lead with 6:26 left in the first after senior Lauren Thacker was fouled inside on a made basket and converted the free throw for a 3-point play. Port Townsend answered with its own 7-0 run, capped by a 3-pointer by Megan Lee, for a 7-6 lead with 4:55 to play in the quarter. The lead seesawed back and forth during the rest of the period, with Snyder hitting a 3 with 40 seconds left to give Chi-
macum an 11-9 lead at the end of the first quarter. Both teams toned down the turnovers in the second quarter, Port Townsend going from 11 in the first to five in the second and Chimacum from eight to three, but each team struggled to score. Chimacum scored five points in the quarter, capped by a Mechelle Nisbet basket that made it 16-9 with 2:10 to play. Nisbet led the Cowboys with 12 points in the game. TURN
Neah beats Chimacum 64-54 Red Devils win tourney title at Port Townsend BY MICHAEL CARMAN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND — Neah Bay earned the Crush in the Slush small-school championship by beating Chimacum 64-54 at Port Townsend High School. It was the first of what fans, players and coaches hope will be multiple championships this season “Hopefully of many to come,” Neah Bay coach Gerrad Brooks said of the tourney title after Saturday’s game. The Cowboys managed to control the pace in the early going, playing a slowed-down, half-court style against the frenetic Red Devils. Chimacum’s John Carthum had the hot hand, sinking two quick 3-pointers for the Cowboys and post Orion Weller had four points, his second basket leading to a Neah Bay timeout with Chimacum up 14-9 with three minutes to play in the

Neah Bay inserted 6-foot-6 post Grayson Porter in the game to challenge the 6-foot-4 Weller and Chimacum’s other big man, 6-foot-5 Brendon Naylor. Porter scored a fast bucket
and then Josiah Greene knotted the score at 14-14 after reaching back for a pass from Ryan Moss that was thrown just a bit behind him, and gathering to score a layup and drawing a foul.
Greene sank the freebie, and after Neah Bay’s Abraham Venske and Naylor swapped scores, the game was 16-all after one period. TURN
Riders roll after half to beat Wolves BY LEE HORTON PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — A much-improved Port Angeles beat a much-improved Black Hills 81-71 in a nonleague boys basketball game at Port Angeles High School. The Roughriders outlasted another slow start by outscoring the Wolves 44-26 after halftime. “Yeah, we decided to actually play defense, so that helped out a lot,” Port Angeles guard Hayden Gunderson said of the Riders’ halftime adjustments. “Because we kind of let them get easy shots [in the first half], and we decided to actually defend up and not let them get

Schumacher then hit a pair of free throws to give the Riders the lead. “We just came together and started playing as a team, not so selfish like we did in the first half,” Gunderson said of the third quarter. “We started looking for each other and started getting better shots.” TURN

Port Townsend boys outlast La Conner 48-39 BY MICHAEL CARMAN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND — The Port Townsend Redskins shook off an upset loss to Chimacum and rebounded for a solid 48-39 victory over La Conner in the Crush in the Slush boys small-school consolation game at Port Townsend High School. Port Townsend found buckets on the inside in the opening moments of the game, including four quick points from Jacob King, a football standout who has been plagued with early foul trouble in many games this season. The Redskins also displayed more want-to on both the offensive and defensive glass and made more hustle plays after being outworked by Chimacum on Friday. “I told the team the effort was much better on the boards. We needed that second or third effort on rebounds and loose balls in this game and we got it,” Port Townsend coach Tom Webster said after Saturday’s win. A night after scoring 25
against Chimacum, Port Townsend’s Paul Spaltenstein again led all scorers with 20 points. The senior hit a 3-pointer to give the Redskins a 9-8 lead with 1:45 to play in the first quarter, and Cody Russell added a sweet right-toleft reverse layup to give Port Townsend an 11-8 lead after one. Russell finished with 14 points for Port Townsend.
opening the fourth quarter with a 7-0 run on the strength of a 3-pointer and a two-point bucket from Russell and a turnaround jumper from the free-throw line by Spaltenstein. That basket gave Port Townsend a 39-32 lead with 4:45 to play. Two Zavala baskets trimmed the lead to 39-36 with 3 minutes left before King answered right back with a layup for Port Townsend on an assist from Russell for a 41-36 lead with 2:49 remaining. A 3-pointer from Braves freshman Scott Lindeman cut the score to 43-39 with a minute to go, but Port Townsend put the clamps down on defense to close it out. Spaltenstein iced the contest by hitting 5 of 6 free throws in the final 25 seconds.
PT leads at half The Redskins pushed the lead to 28-21 at halftime, limiting La Conner’s best player Hudson Zavala to just four points at the break. Spaltenstein had six points and Sean Dwyer notched six of his eight points in the second quarter for Port Townsend. Russell had five in the quarter, including an NBA-range 3-pointer. Turnovers held Port Townsend to just four thirdquarter points, as the Redskins’ point guards had trouble adapting to a man press La Conner employed after halftime. Menawhile, Port

Riders: Gunderson scores 20 Neah: Venske CONTINUED FROM B1 Port Angeles also improved its defensive effort after the Wolves’ consistently broke through the Riders’ press in the first two quarters. “Foul trouble hampered us in the first half. Offensively, we weren’t getting in any flow, defensively, we weren’t doing what we wanted to do,” Stephens said. “It’s like we talked about, we weren’t really doing anything effectively on defense other than getting them to play fast. But, getting them to play fast and giving up layups doesn’t accomplish anything.” Black Hills regained the lead at 50-49, but Port Angeles went on a 7-0 run to take a 56-50 lead with 1:55 remaining in the third quarter. The Wolves were unable to mount a legitimate comeback thereafter, as the Riders continued to make timely baskets and grab timely rebounds the prevented Black Hills from having too many secondchance scoring opportunities. The 5-foot-9 Gunderson was especially active on the defensive glass. Pick-and-rolls left Gunderson defending bigger players when the Wolves’ shot the ball, which made it his responsibility to crash the boards. “Hayden is completely

So whether it’s a rebound, a steal or attacking the basket hard, even finding the guy open in the corner, Hayden’s going to do what it takes to help this team success.
“And he’s done that all year. He’s become a very good team leader.” Gunderson kept Black Hills from building too big of lead in the first half with well-timed 3-pointers. He finished with 20 points in a reserve role. “He’s also taken himself off the bench this year,
which is a different role for him, being that last year we had the ball in his hands for a whole lot of the year,” Stephens said of Gunderson. “But he’s come off the bench and really sparked us, and kind of owned that. “He’s had some people ask him, ‘Hey, coach got you coming off the bench?’ and he goes, ‘Yeah, I’m scoring 20 a night and we’re winning.’ And that’s kind of his response.” Hunter Hathaway led Port Angeles with 22 points and Derek Schumacher scored 14. Black Hills’ TJ Mickelson led all scorers with 26 points, including a nifty play in the fourth quarter in which he kept his dribble after being knocked to the floor, returned to his feet and hit a short jumper. Port Angeles (4-2 Olympic League, 6-4 overall) is off until Friday, Jan. 10, when it hosts rival Sequim (4-1 Olympic League, 6-3 overall). Stephens plans to give his team Monday and Wednesday off before returning to its normal practice schedule after the New Year.

Saints make playoffs with 42-17 win over Bucs BY BRETT MARTEL THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW ORLEANS — One more time, Drew Brees and the Saints proved how tough they are to hang with in the Big Easy. If they want to go anywhere in the playoffs, though, they’ll have to do so on the road. Brees passed for four touchdowns and ran for another score, and New Orleans clinched a wildcard spot with a 42-17 victory over Tampa Bay on Sunday. Three of Brees’ scoring
strikes were longer than 40 yards — 76 to Kenny Stills, 44 to Lance Moore and 41 to Robert Meachem. Brees passed for 381 yards, eclipsing 5,000 yards in a season for an unprecedented fourth time. He finished the season with 5,162 yards to go with 39 touchdowns. Brees’ other TD was a 10-yard pass to tight end Jimmy Graham, and the Saints (11-5) finished 8-0 in the Superdome. Mike Glennon passed for 219 yards and two TDs for Tampa Bay (4-12).

Dawson’s FG gives 49ers 23-20 win over Cardinals BY BOB BAUM THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
GLENDALE, Ariz. — San Francisco booted a 17-point lead, then Phil Dawson kicked the 49ers to a victory that clinched the NFC’s No. 5 playoff seed. Dawson made a 40-yard field goal as the game ended to lift San Francisco to a 23-20 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. He had matched his career best with a 56-yarder to put the 49ers (12-4) up 20-17 with 1:45 to go. Jay Feely’s 43-yard field goal then tied it for Arizona with 34 seconds left.
Started with return
the last 10 meetings with Arizona. Boldin did most of his damage in the first quarter, with six catches for 106 yards, including a 4-yarder for a touchdown and a 63-yard play to set up another TD. But that was it for the San Francisco offense until Dawson’s late two kicks. In between the kicker’s franchise record string of 27 consecutive field goals ended when he missed a 24-yard chip shot in the waning seconds of the first half. Feely, who made a 49-yarder, had missed from 37 and 43 yards before making the one to tie the game for the last time. Bowman’s sack had put Arizona in third and 13 when Palmer lofted one to the end zone, where Roberts gathered it in just as he was sliding out of bounds on a slippery turf recently resodded for Tuesday’s Fiesta Bowl. Kaepernick’s 18-yard pass to Boldin helped set up Dawson’ 56-yarder, matching his longest, set in 2008.
St. Louis was called for two more personal fouls on the ensuing kickoff. The 12 penalties were a season high for the Rams. Kellen Clemens finished 21 of 30 for 157 yards and two interceptions. Zac Stacy, who needed 42 yards rushing to reach 1,000 on the season, was held to 15 yards on 15 carries. Robert Quinn needed two sacks to become the 10th player with 20 in a season. He got No. 19 in the first half, but was kept off Wilson’s back in the second half. Clemens threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Jared Cook with 4:13 left as the Rams finally got their offense moving when the result was already decided. They finished with 13 yards rushing and 158 total yards for the game.

Chargers claim playoff spot with OT win BY BERNIE WILSON THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SAN DIEGO — The San Diego Chargers’ three-year playoff drought is over, thanks to another epic, heart-stopping win against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chargers have needed help for weeks, and everything fell into place on Sunday, with the last piece being a 27-24 overtime victory over a Chiefs team that already had clinched the AFC’s No. 5 seed and rested 20 of 22 starters. Nick Novak kicked a 36-yard field goal with 5:30 left in overtime. The Chargers, who trailed by 10 points in the fourth quarter, then held the Chiefs on downs to win it after they reached the San Diego 41. Earlier in the day, the Chargers (9-7) got the help they needed when Miami and Baltimore both lost. San Diego has won four straight and five of six heading into a wild-card game next weekend at AFC North champion Cincinnati. The Chiefs (11-5) go into the playoffs having lost five of seven. They play at AFC South champion Indianapolis, which won 23-7 in Kansas City last week. With the Chargers on the verge of an embarrassing collapse against a team with nothing to play for, Philip Rivers threw a
LaMichael James’ 45-yard kickoff return and two quick completions by Collin Kaepernick set up Dawson’s game winner. Arizona (10-6) rallied from a 17-0 first-quarter deficit to tie it on Carson Palmer’s 34-yard touchdown pass to Andre Roberts with 3:20 remaining.

San Diego Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal, right, gets into the end zone for a touchdown as Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Marcus Cooper defends during the second half San Diego’s win. 6-yard touchdown pass to Eddie Royal early in the fourth quarter and Novak kicked a 22-yard field goal to tie it with 3:21 left in regulation Kansas City kicker Ryan Succop was wide right on a potential game-winning, 41-yard field goal try with 4 seconds left in regulation. The Chiefs lost the overtime coin toss and the Chargers, who stunned their AFC West rivals 41-38 in Kansas City on Nov. 24,
elected to receive. The winning drive was kept alive by a 2-yard gain by Pro Bowl safety Eric Weddle on a fake punt on fourth-and-2 from the Chargers 28. With backup Chase Daniel starting in place of quarterback Alex Smith, the Chiefs took their biggest lead, 24-14, on Succop’s 46-yard field goal with 7:27 left in the third quarter. The drive was set up by Dexter McCluster’s 32-yard punt return to the Chargers 35.
Rivers then rallied San Diego to 10 points on consecutive drives. The Chiefs took the game’s opening kickoff and needed only five plays before Knile Davis scored on a 17-yard run. The Chargers came right back on a five-play drive of their own and scored on Rivers’ 22-yard pass to Ladarius Green. The drive included a 44-yard run by Ryan Mathews, who stiffarmed a Chiefs defender for a few extra yards.

Not exactly the step forward new owner Jimmy Haslam was looking for with a roster littered with five Pro Bowlers, leading to speculation head coach Rob Chudzinski could be in trouble after just one season on the job. Chudzinski’s players did something after the game they failed to do during it: rally around their coach. WINT

DEAR ABBY: I’m a 23-year-old woman in a fantastic relationship with a man two years older. I could fill volumes with all the things I love about him. My problem is I make more money than he does. He earns a good living and is a hard worker, but he constantly says things like, “You’re going to leave me for someone who makes more money than I do,” or, “Your parents don’t think I’m good enough for you because I didn’t go to college.” Abby, my parents don’t care about that. They adore him because they see how happy he makes me. I don’t care that I earn more. The way I look at it, eventually when we’re married, our finances will be combined. I have tried telling him this and convincing him that I love him for all his qualities, but he doesn’t believe me. Is there anything else I can do? Head Over Heels in Portland, Ore.

My friend is still alive. Is it necessary and proper to write a thankyou, and to whom? Bewildered in Phoenix Dear Bewildered: Write a short thank-you note to the person who called you.

disregard for rules have created such a toxic atmosphere we’re afraid our relationship is forever changed. Abby, this is not the daughter we raised! What do we do? Sad Dad Out West
Dear Sad Dad: Your letter raises more questions than I can answer. Why did your daughter drop out of college? Does she have a job? Where is her money going if she’s not saving it or contributing to the household? Does she have a drug problem? Emotional problems? If this isn’t the girl you raised, there has to be a reason for it. Rather than hating her for her behavior, what you should be doing is finding out what’s causing it.
Dear Head Over Heels: The problem isn’t that you make more money than your boyfriend does; it’s that he doesn’t have enough self-confidence to believe that someone could love him just for himself. Some men feel that in order for them to affirm their masculinity, they have to bring in the bigger paycheck. You might point out that when he says those things, it hurts your feelings because it implies that all you care about is money, you have poor values and are for sale to the highest bidder. But until he is able to recognize all that he has to offer, there’s nothing more you can do.

Rivals: PT’s Gitelman steps up Rodgers, Cobb lead CONTINUED FROM B1 Port Townsend’s Jayde Richardson answered that hoop by scoring the Redskins first points of the period with 1:50 to play in the quarter. She added another basket with 1:05 to play to cut Chimacum’s lead to 16-13 at halftime. Richardson led all scorers with 15 points. Port Townsend coach Randy Maag said the Redskins worked on their press break at halftime, but he focused more on telling his team to make sure “every rebound and every loose ball was ours.” Redskins point guard Jewel Johnson banked home a 3-pointer from the top of the arc, cutting the Cowboys lead to 21-20 with 3 minutes to go in the third period. Johnson, who “has been ill for about a week,” according to Maag, had 11 points on the night for Port Townsend and was effective in breaking Chimacum’s defensive press throughout the contest. “She really powered through for us,” Maag said of Johnson.
Snyder answered Johnson’s trey with a 3 of her own on the next possession before a 7-0 Redskins run on two-point baskets by Patricia Reeves and Richardson and another Johnson 3 put Port Townsend in the lead 27-24 with 50 seconds to go in the third. Nisbet hit a bucket while being fouled with 12 seconds left and converted the foul shot for a 29-29 tie entering the fourth quarter. Reeves gave Port Townsend the first lead of the fourth a minute into the quarter on an inside basket for a 31-29 lead. A few possessions later, Reeves’ cross-court pressbreaking pass was stolen by Snyder, who took the ball down the floor and was fouled by Reeves while converting a layup. She missed the foul shot, but it was the 5-foot-10 Reeves’ fifth foul, which was a big blow to Port Townsend’s post presence, and the Redskins’ lead was cut to 33-31 with 5:42 remaining in the game. Senior reserve Rosie Gitelman entered the game for Port Townsend and sank a big jumper to give the
Redskins a 36-31 lead with 3:50 to play. “Rosie gets my game ball,” Maag said. “That’s the first significant minutes she has played all year and she came in and gave us a big basket and four or five rebounds, and I am really proud of her effort tonight. “I was a little surprised Chimacum didn’t go into a zone defense, which I thought helped us because we were able to spread them out and find seams in the defense and pick up fouls,” Maag said. “They [Chimacum] also looked a little tired at the end to me.” The Cowboys had been whistled for more fouls in the second half and it caught up with them in the fourth quarter, as Port Townsend’s final nine points came from the freethrow line. Rilke Rutenbeck hit four of those free throws to clinch the win for the Redskins. “I’m not disappointed in the effort,” Chimacum coach Trevor Huntingford said. “There have been times this year where I have been,
but this was not one of them.” Huntingford added that beating their rivals was important to his players. “They wanted this one pretty badly, above all others,” he said. Huntingford thinks some internal tension on how to close out games hindered his team in the fourth quarter. “We ran into this late last year; when you are having a losing season and just on the verge of turning the corner,” Huntingford said, “and it’s late in a close game and the focus in the huddle is on to not lose. “I could feel a little of that in us tonight, but there is another part of me that says when you give up about 12 points on banked in shots that aren’t meant to be banked in shots, sometimes there’s a little luck involved.” Port Townsend 47, Chimacum 38 Chimacum 11 5 13 9— 38 Port Townsend 9 4 16 18— 47 Individual scoring Chimacum (0-7) M.

Blount leads Pats to bye with 34-20 win over Bills THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — LeGarrette Blount and the Patriots dashed and splashed their way to a first-round AFC bye. The powerful back rushed for a career-high 189 yards and two touchdowns and had two long kickoff returns as New England beat the Buffalo Bills 34-20 on a rainy Sunday. Tom Brady was content to hand the ball off during a steady downpour against a team leading the NFL in sacks and second in interceptions. And Blount responded, leading the
charge into the playoffs. Stephen Gostkowski helped make sure the Patriots (12-4) wouldn’t have a game next weekend with four field goals. While the Patriots earned their eighth bye in Bill Belichick’s 14 seasons as coach, the Bills (6-10) missed the playoffs for the 14th straight year, the league’s longest current streak. New England won its 13th straight home game against Buffalo, including 12-0 since Gillette Stadium opened in 2002. The Patriots finished with the second seed in the
AFC behind Denver, which beat Oakland 34-14, after beginning their game with a chance to finish in any of the AFC’s top four playoff spots. One week after routing the Baltimore Ravens 41-7, the Patriots’ defense held off a late Bills comeback. The Bills played without quarterback EJ Manuel, who has a small tear in his left knee ligament, and wide receiver Stevie Johnson, excused for the second straight game after his mother’s death. But backup Thad Lewis led the Bills back with a
12-yard scoring pass to T.J. Graham late in the third quarter and an 80-yard drive capped by Fred Jackson’s 5-yard run with 10:20 remaining in the game. After each of those touchdowns, though, Blount powered and sped his way through the Bills with kickoff returns of 83 and 62 yards. The first set up Brady’s 5-yard scoring pass to Shane Vereen, followed by a 2-point conversion pass to Julian Edelman that made it 24-10. The second led to Gostkowski’s fourth field goal, a 35-yarder that put the Patriots ahead 27-17.
Packers over Bears BY ANDREW SELIGMAN THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
CHICAGO — Aaron Rodgers and Randall Cobb came back just in time to lift the Green Bay Packers to the NFC North championship. Rodgers fired a 48-yard touchdown pass to Cobb in the final minute, and the Packers beat the Chicago Bears 33-28 to capture the division title. Back after missing seven games with a broken left collarbone, Rodgers found a wide-open Cobb on fourthand-8 to wipe out a onepoint deficit with 38 seconds left. Green Bay will host San Francisco next weekend in the wild-card round. The Bears had one final drive, but Jay Cutler’s deep pass to Alshon Jeffery was intercepted by Sam Shields on the final play. That gave the Packers (8-7-1) their third straight division title and fifth postseason appearance in a row. It also kept the Bears (8-8) out of the playoffs for the sixth time in seven years. Things weren’t looking great for the Packers after Chicago’s Brandon Marshall spun away from Tramon Williams in the end zone on the first play of the fourth quarter to make it 28-20. But the Packers answered with a touchdown drive. Eddie Lacy ran in from the 6 after a 22-yard pass from Rodgers to Andrew Quarless went through safety Chris Conte’s hands, making it a one-point game. Then, on the winning drive, Green Bay converted twice on fourth-and-1 before Rodgers eluded pressure unleashed that winning pass to Cobb. It was a strong finish after a shaky start for the superstar quarterback, and it gave him some payback
against the team that nearly ended his season. Rodgers was intercepted on the Packers’ first two possessions, with Conte picking him off in the end zone on the first one. He also threw for 318 yards and two touchdowns in his first appearance since Nov. 4. He got knocked out of that game on an early sack by Shea McClellin at Lambeau Field, sending the Packers into a 2-5-1 slide. Jordy Nelson had 161 yards receiving, and Cobb, in his first appearance since Oct. 13, won it with his catch. James Starks ran for 88 yards. Eddie Lacy, hobbled by a knee injury, finished with just 66. For the Bears, their first season under Marc Trestman ended the same way five of the previous six did under Lovie Smith — on the outside looking in at the playoffs. They had a chance to wrap up the division last week, only to get pounded 54-11 at Philadelphia. And with another opportunity, they came up short against their longtime rivals. This one is sure to spark memories of Green Bay’s victory in the 2010 NFC title game at Soldier Field on the way to the Super Bowl championship — and fuel more questions about Cutler’s ability to win big games. With a playoff spot on the line and his contract set to expire, Cutler threw for 226 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. He is now 1-9 against Green Bay, including that conference final and a loss with Denver in 2007. Matt Forte ran for 110 yards and two scores. He also had 47 yards receiving with a touchdown catch. Alshon Jeffery had 80 yards receiving, and Brandon Marshall had 74.

Man, 2 kids critically hurt in crash AUBURN — A man and two children are in critical condition at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle after their car ran off the road in Auburn early Sunday and hit a tree in dense fog. Investigators told KING-TV the car was traveling 90 miles-per-hour when it ran off the road around 2:30 a.m., just east of the Muckleshoot Casino. Injured are the driver, a 6-year-old boy and a 9-year-old girl.

The review said the city’s contract with Columbia Hospitality lacks requirements about how sales should be deposited. The Associated Press
