Last-chance effort to save species starts this month By Jeff Barnard

ore than 20 years of logging cutbacks on national forests across the Northwest have yet to show much benefit for the northern spotted owl, leading to what many believe will be a double-barreled effort that includes locking up more acreage and purging thousands of a newcomer to the threatened species’ survival. The spotted owl, which has become an icon of the conflict between jobs and protected species, was declared threatened in 1990 after a century of logging wiped out too much of its habitat — old-growth forests. The broken-topped old trees provided nests for the birds, protection from swooping goshawks that prey on it, and the red tree voles, flying squirrels and wood rats that it eats. And now an East Coast cousin called the barred owl has moved in, making federal biologists ponder whether they should start shot-gunning hundreds, if not thousands, of those owls to keep them from driving spotted owls to extinction even faster.

Plan due this month The Obama administration is due to offer its last-ditch plan for saving the spotted owl from extinction — called a recovery plan — this month. Specifics of those habitat protections

This male hybrid owl, produced by a northern spotted owl and a barred owl, was watched by a researcher in the Willamette National Forest outside Lowell, Ore., in 2004. are not likely to be resolved for more than a year. “We are going to continue to have spotted owls into the future,” said Eric Forsman, a U.S. Forest Service biologist who has been studying the spotted owl’s decline since 1972. “But it’s going to be very difficult to recover the species — simply because the barred owl has thrown a huge monkey wrench into everything.” The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service began work on a recovery plan but never finished it.

The Northwest Forest Plan, created to settle lawsuits that had locked up millions of acres of national forests to save the owl, took its place and created a network of old-growth habitats for species like the owl, key watersheds for salmon and stands of timber for logging. But many of the reserves were covered with young stands that would need decades to mature into owl habitat — and the logging sections had patches of old growth in which the owls were still living.

30th anniversary of U.S. recognition, success it brought By Jeff Chew

BLYN — Although S’Klallam people have been around for millennia — ages before the North Olympic Peninsula was first seen by white settlers, long before Blyn became the center for economic development that it is today — the Jamestown S’Klallam tribe received federal recognition only 30 years ago.

PORT ANGELES — A 39-year-old Port Angeles man fell asleep while driving Saturday and crashed his van into a fence and restaurant after crossing at least two lanes of U.S. Highway 101, authorities said. The driver, Mike Stensland, coasted into a fence outside Sam’s Chinese Restaurant & Teriyaki east of Port Angeles at about 5 p.m., then — apparently without knowing it — reversed slowly into the restaurant 60 feet away, said Clallam County Sheriff’s Deputy Josh Ley. Stensland was heading eastbound on the highway when he fell asleep, Ley said; his van didn’t hit any other vehicles and no one was injured. Ley said no alcohol or drugs were involved. He said that Stensland does not have a medical condition or take medication that could have caused him to fall asleep. He simply had a long day at work, the deputy said. Turn

Jamestown tribal milestone feted status Saturday at the tribe’s totem-graced tribal center, more than 150 tribal members and leaders joined those who supported their cause in remembering how far the tribe has come since Federal Recognition Day, Feb. 10, 1981 — from a few homes and a whole lot of blackberry brambles to a thriving, attractive village. Before the U.S. government recognized the tribe, its leaders met in coffee shops, not a tribal center, they recalled. “We’ve traveled a long trail,” Tribal Chairman Ron Allen said before the afternoon of recollections, feasting and entertainment was launched.

Jamestown S’Klallam tribal member Patrick Adams performs the blessing for Saturday’s 30th anniversary ceremony of federal recognition. “We are celebrating a chapter on who we are as a people. We wanted to develop a political infrastructure to pursue economic development and to stand on our own two feet.” Allen quickly admits that at the time, he had no idea the tribe’s fortunes would grow to such an extent — from a budget of less than $25,000 in the early

Victoria set for Potter author film A movie about the life of Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling is to be shot in Victoria. Filming will begin early next month, with the British Columbia capital used to re-create locations in Rowling Edinburgh, Scotland, as well as London and Portugal, the Victoria Times Colonist reported Saturday. “Strange Magic,” an unauthorized made-for-TV biography, will chart Row­ ling’s life from childhood to fame as the author of the books about the young wizard. The movie is being directed by Paul A. Kaufman. Poppy Montgomery, best known as FBI agent Samantha Spade on the TV series “Without a Trace,” will play Rowling, with Antonio Cupo as the Scottish writer’s Portuguese boyfriend. Victoria film commissioner Kathleen Gilbert said her staff researched buildings in Edinburgh and drove through Victoria to find similar-looking buildings in their attempt to land the shoot. Among the sets will be Munro’s on Government Street. The historic book-

store will pose as a London shop where scores of costumed Harry Potter fans line up for a book signing.

Taylor hospitalized Elizabeth Taylor has been hospitalized for treatment of congestive heart failure. The Oscar-winning actress was at the CedarsSinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Taylor Saturday, her spokeswoman, Sally Morrison, said. The 78-year-old Taylor first disclosed in November 2004 that she suffered from congestive heart failure. The condition was compounded with other ailments including spinal fractures and the effects of scoliosis. Morrison did not know how long Taylor would be in the hospital. Taylor had been scheduled to attend an amfAR benefit gala Wednesday night in New York, where she was to receive an award alongside former President Bill Clinton and designer Diane von Furstenberg, celebrating their dedication to AIDS research. Elton John accepted the honor on her behalf. The actress had nearfatal bouts with pneumonia in 1961 and 1990, and another respiratory infection forced her to cancel all

engagements for several weeks in late 1992. Both her hip joints were replaced in 1994 and 1995. She’s also battled ulcers, amoebic dysentery, bursitis, and had a benign brain tumor removed in 1997. In recent years, she has had to use a wheelchair when out in public.

He’ll be back After seven years in the California governor’s mansion, Arnold Schwarzenegger is returning to his old day job: acting. Schwarzenegger wrote on Twitter that he’s ready to start considering film roles again. The former governor tweeted Thursday night: “Exciting news. My friends at CAA have Schwarzenegger been asking me for 7 years when they can take offers seriously. Gave them the green light today.” Creative Artists Agency is a leading Hollywood talent agency. Schwarzenegger’s personal aide, Daniel Ketchell, confirmed the tweet Friday morning. Before leading the state of California from 2003 to 2010, the former body builder was the star of such blockbusters as the “Terminator” franchise and “True Lies” and comedies like “Kindergarten Cop.”

Passings By The Associated Press

Chuck Tanner, 82, one of baseball’s relentlessly upbeat figures, died Friday in his hometown of New Castle, Pa. He died of a long illness at his home after spending time in hospice care. For Mr. Tanner, it Mr. Tanner was all in 2004 about family, in so many ways. There was the 1979 World Series when the Pittsburgh Pirates — energized by the thumping anthem “We Are Family” — soared to a title that ended with the players’ wives dancing on the dugout roof. And there was Game 5 of that Series, when the great comeback started for a Pirates team facing elimination by Baltimore. Mr. Tanner learned his mother had died that morning, but he insisted on managing because he knew she would have wanted him to do the job. “In baseball, we will remember his eternal optimism and his passion for the game,” Mr. Tanner’s son, former major league pitcher Bruce, said in a statement. He’ll be noted in the record book, too, for a most smashing debut in the majors: Playing for the Mil-

waukee Braves in 1955, he homered on the first pitch he saw as a big leaguer. Mr. Tanner managed the White Sox, Athletics, Pirates and Braves to a record of 1,352-1,381 from 1970-1988. He won one division title and finished second five times. “It’s hard to win a pennant,” Mr. Tanner once said, “but it’s harder to lose one.”


John Volz, 74, a former U.S. attorney who spearheaded high-profile corruption cases involving Louisiana Gov. Edwin Edwards and New Orleans crime boss Carlos Marcello, has died.

Briefly: Nation Man fatally stabs 3, runs over pedestrian NEW YORK — New York City police said a man went on a 28-hour stabbing rampage that took the lives of his stepfather, his ex-girlfriend and her mother. Authorities said 23-yearold Maksim Gelman of Brooklyn also hijacked two cars, fatally hit a pedestrian and stabbed four Gelman other people. Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly on Saturday called the case “horrendous and bizarre.” He said charges are pending. Gelman was apprehended Saturday morning in a Times Square subway station minutes after a man was stabbed and wounded on a crowded train. Gelman’s stepfather was knifed at about 5 a.m. Friday in his Brooklyn home. Later Friday, a 9-1-1 call led police to the bodies of Gelman’s ex-girlfriend and her mother a few blocks away. None of Gelman’s relatives could be reached for comment Saturday.

Obama’s budget WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama’s budget submission Monday will take a surgical approach to a deficit problem that his Republican rivals say warrants a meat ax. As Obama seeks $53 billion

for high-speed rail over the next few years, House Republicans are trying to pull back $2.5 billion that’s already been promised. He’s seeking increases for his “Race to the Top” initiative that provides grants to better-performing schools; Republicans on Friday unveiled a 5 percent cut to schools serving the disadvantaged. Monday’s release of next year’s budget plan will be likely ignored by resurgent Republicans intent on cutting $100 billion from the president’s old budget. The GOP drive to slash 2011 spending and much of the savings sought by Obama involve just a small piece of the budget pie — the annual domestic agency budgets that make up just one-tenth of federal spending. On Saturday, Obama promised the government will have to tighten its belt.

Anti-government protesters continue to celebrate in Tahrir Square in downtown Cairo on Saturday.

Egyptians press for voice in democracy Thousands begin cleaning up central Tahrir Square in Cairo By Lee Keath and Hadeel Al-Shalchi The Associated Press

CAIRO — On Egypt’s first day in nearly 30 years without Hosni Mubarak as president, its new military rulers promised Saturday to abide by the peace treaty with Israel and eventually hand power to an elected government. Protesters, still partying over their victory in pushing Mubarak out, now pressed for a voice in guiding their country’s move to democracy. The protesters’ first act was deeply symbolic of their ambition to build a new Egypt and their determination to do it themselves: Thousands began cleaning up Cairo’s central Tahrir Square, the epicenter of their movement. The sprawling plaza was battered and trashed by 18 days of street battles and rallies by hundreds of thousands. Even as thousands flowed in to celebrate, broom brigades fanned

out, with smiling young men and women — some in stylish clothes and earrings — sweeping up rubble and garbage. Others repaired sidewalks torn apart for concrete chunks to use as ammunition in fighting with pro-regime gangs. Young veiled girls painted the metal railings of fences along the sidewalk.

‘Better than before’ “Sorry for the inconvenience, but we’re building Egypt,” read placards many wore. “We are cleaning the square now because it is ours,” said Omar Mohammed, a 20-year-old student. “After living here for three weeks, it has become our home. . . . We’re going to leave it better than before.” A coalition of youth groups that organized the protests issued their first cohesive list of demands for handling the transition

to democracy. Their focus was on ensuring they — not just the military or members of Mubarak’s regime — have a seat at the table in deliberations shaping the future. Among their demands: lifting of emergency law; creation of a presidential council, made up of a military representative and two “trusted personalities”; the dissolving of the ruling party-dominated parliament; and the forming of a broad-based unity government and a committee to either amend or rewrite completely the constitution. “The revolution is not over. This is just a beginning. We are working on how to move into a second republic,” said Shady elGhazali Harb, the representative on the coalition from one of the youth organizing groups, the Democratic Front. Protesters were debating whether to lift their 24-hour-aday demonstration camp in Tahrir. The coalition called for it to end and be replaced by weekly mass demonstrations every Friday to keep pressure on. But many in the square argued to remain.

United States faces uncertain future in Egypt as policy shifts By Erica Werner

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The United States faces an intensely uncertain future in Egypt, a stalwart ally of decades in the volatile Middle East, where key tenets of American foreign policy are now thrown into doubt. Behind President Barack Obama’s praise for Egypt’s protesters and the outcome they achieved lie major unanswered questions about what will come next now that President Hosni Mubarak has been overthrown after 30 years of authoritarian rule. For many people in Egypt, they were years of oppression, corruption and poverty; but for the U.S., Mubarak was an anchor of stability at the helm of the world’s largest Arab nation, enforcing a peace treaty with Israel and protecting vital U.S. interests, including passage for oil through the

Suez Canal. For now, the military is in charge, but whether, when or how a transition will be made to the kind of democratic society that meets the protesters’ demands remains unknown. Speaking at the White House on Friday, Obama acknowledged difficult days ahead and unanswered questions but expressed confidence that the answers will be found.

Obama praises military Most tellingly, as the U.S. warily eyes the days ahead, Obama singled out the Egyptian military for praise in the restraint it showed through more than two weeks of largely peaceful protests. But the president emphasized the military’s role as a “caretaker” leading up to elections now set for September and said it must now “ensure a transition that is credi-

ble in the eyes of the Egyptian people.” He said that means lifting Egypt’s hated 30-year-old “emergency” police powers laws, protecting the rights of citizens, revising the country’s law and constitution “to make this change irreversible and laying out a clear path to elections that are fair and free.” But just as the U.S. had limited influence during the uprising that seemed to spring almost out of nowhere to overtake Egypt, it has limited influence over what happens next. The U.S. provides some $1.5 billion a year in aid to Egypt, the vast majority of it to the military, and has a good relationship with the Egyptian military, which often sends officers here for training. That doesn’t guarantee a commanding U.S. role.

World: Palestinians will hold vote by September

A taxi driver plowed slowly through a crowd on a sidewalk in a popular restaurant and nightclub zone in San Diego early Saturday, severing the leg of one woman and injuring more than two dozen other people, police said. The crash occurred at about 2 a.m. in the heart of the busy Gaslamp District as revelers were heading home, according to police Sgt. Ray Battrick. Witnesses said the cab was traveling around 15 miles an hour. The driver sustained a broken nose after being beaten by people in the crowd, Battrick said. The crash did not appear to be intentional, authorities said.

A female Siberian tiger killed in a hail of police gunfire after fatally mauling a man at the San Francisco Zoo on Christmas Day 2007 likely was provoked into leaping and clawing out of its enclosure, a federal investigator said in documents obtained by The Associated Press. The tiger named Tatiana killed 17-year-old Carlos Sousa Jr. and injured his friends, brothers Paul and Kulbir Dhaliwal, leaving claw marks etched in the asphalt and claw fragments in the bushes outside its pen. Claw marks were also discovered near the top of the enclosure wall, which was lower than federal safety standards dictate.

Authorities said a Florida teen has told police that bite marks on her body came from “Twilight”-inspired vampire role-playing — not from someone who attacked her while she was out jogging. The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office has charged the 15-year-old girl with making a false report. Authorities said the girl is a fan of the vampire-based “Twilight” movies and books. The Sheriff’s Office said the girl had engaged in “fantasy biting” with a 19-year-old man in August and worried her mother would see the marks. She told her mother she had been attacked while jogging.

Palestinians will hold presidential and legislative elections by September, a top aide to President Mahmoud Abbas announced Saturday, a surprise move apparently prompted by the political unrest spreading in the Arab world.

Merchants object to daytime construction 53 PA business owners sign petition on First Street work By Tom Callis

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Over four dozen downtown merchants are objecting to plans to conduct a nearly three-month construction project on First Street during business hours. Fifty-three business owners have signed a petition urging Port Angeles City Hall to have a new stormwater pipe installed between Valley and Laurel streets on First Street at night rather than during the day. Work is expected to begin March 1. Last Wednesday, at a hastily scheduled meeting with city staff, a few members of the Port Angeles Downtown Association gave the go-ahead for construction to occur during the day in order to get it done a month sooner. Ten of the downtown association’s 175 members attended the meeting; one voiced opposition to the schedule. Barb Frederick, association executive director, said last week she thought the daylight work would be a good trade-off for downtown since it would keep construction from occurring after Memorial Day (May 30), when tourism starts to pick up. In response to the petition and criticism that the meeting was held on short notice, the downtown association has requested another meeting with the city to allow additional

input from its members. Glenn Cutler, city public works and utilities director, said he will talk with other city staff members Monday about scheduling a meeting with downtown merchants this week. “I’m always willing to meet with the downtown association and get their input,” he said.

Maybe too late Cutler said he wasn’t sure whether it’s too late to change the schedule for a second time. The city had initially planned to have the work — which will mainly involve tearing up the south lane of the road between Valley and Laurel streets — from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. in order to lessen the impact on downtown commerce and traffic. But working at night would mean that the project would not end until late June. Cutler said the city’s contractor, Road Construction Northwest Inc., told the city Tuesday it could be done by Memorial Day if its employees worked from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. They will work five days a week.

Meeting notification Don Zeller, who organized the petition drive, said few merchants got the meeting notification soon enough to attend the Wednesday meeting. An e-mail notifying members of the 8 a.m. meeting was sent at

12:14 p.m. Tuesday. Cutler said the meeting was held then because city staff members had a meeting with the contractor later that day and needed to be able to give direction to the company, which plans to start mobilizing equipment shortly. Association President Greg Voyles said in a voice mail message Saturday that he has requested another meeting. He couldn’t be reached for further comment. Frederick didn’t return a request for comment. Zeller, who owns Zeller’s Antiques on First Street, said he would rather have the work last another month Keith Thorpe/Peninsula Daily News if it meant it would not Don Zeller, owner of Zeller’s Antiques in downtown Port Angeles, is occur during business circulating a petition to prevent the city from working on an upcoming hours. sewer project during daylight hours, fearing a loss of business as First

Street is dug up for the installation.

Trying to get ahead “This is the time of the year we’re trying to grow and get ahead because we made it through the winter,” he said. “You might as well bar our front doors and not let anybody in.” Petition signers who could be reached Saturday said they share Zeller’s concerns. While the city plans to launch a public outreach campaign to let people know that sidewalks and businesses will remain open, petition signers said they are concerned that not enough can be done. “We don’t need any deterrent for people coming downtown,” said Lyn Fauth, who owns Tiger Lily Clothing. Fauth said she didn’t get the e-mail in time but would have liked to have attended

the meeting. “If I had another day’s notice, you bet,” she said. “The fact is, we need 24 hours to plan our lives.” Rudy Hiener of Bay Variety said the project could be the “final blow” for some businesses. His daughter, Michele Adolphsen, who owns the business, signed the petition. Hiener said she got the e-mail before the meeting, but was still unable to attend. “We’re not looking forward to the disruption during the day,” he said. City spokeswoman Teresa Pierce said the city has tried to keep the downtown association involved in the project. “We’ve met with them [the downtown association] four or five times over the last several months to keep

them updated on the project,” she said. Pierce added, “We’re going to be trying to find ways to promote the downtown to assure people and the public that the downtown is open when construction is going on.” The construction and construction management contracts for the project total about $1.3 million. The National Park Service is covering that cost because the project is part of its Elwha River restoration effort. The First Street project is intended to remove enough stormwater from the city’s sewer system to offset the contribution of sewage from the Lower Elwha Klallam reservation. The tribe will be connected to the city’s sewers because it’s expected that

its septic tanks will become unusable as the ground water level rises as a result of dam removal. In order to not add to the city’s sewage overflow problem, the park service agreed to fund a stormwater disconnect project to offset the impact. The city is contributing $225,000 to the project to pave both lanes of the road, add bike lanes and replace crosswalks. To receive e-mail updates for the project, e-mail Pierce at A project website has been launched at www. STREETSTORMWATER. htm.

12-year-old pair charged in house fire By Tom Callis

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Two boys have been charged with seconddegree arson for allegedly setting fire to an abandoned house in Sequim last month. The boys, who are not named because they are minors, are both 12 years old. Charges were filed Thursday in Clallam County Juvenile Court. The fire occurred Jan. 18 in a house that had been vacant for 10 years at 526 S. Ninth St. It was reported at about 4:45 p.m. to Clallam County Fire District No. 3. Neither boy was injured in the fire. The house was fully ablaze when firefighters arrived. It burned to the ground. According to court documents, the boys were burning trash inside the residence. The fire began in the kitchen, then spread


he fire occurred Jan. 18 in a house that had been vacant for 10 years at 526 S. Ninth St. to the rest of the building, firefighters said. Clallam County Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Tracey Lassus said one boy told police they attempted to “stomp out” the fire. “It didn’t work, so they left the house,” she said. “They were aware it was on fire.” There was no electricity to the structure, said Fire Marshal Roger Moeder soon after the fire. The house, which is owned by siblings Norman Dawley and Elizabeth Frankfurth, was not insured, Moeder said.

PORT ANGELES — The simulation was real enough to make its point. The driver averted her eyes from the road to send a few simple text messages, not realizing her speed had increased to 60 mph. She drove onto the shoulder, then back to her lane, then over the centerline as she barely missed other drivers seemingly oblivious to the peril she put them in. The car reached 80 mph as it neared a town — and then tragedy struck: The car hit a pedestrian in a crosswalk.

All of this happened Saturday in the gym of the Lower Elwha Klallam tribal center, where two instructors with the national Arrive Alive tour provided a driving simulation to show how dangerous it is to drive drunk and to text while behind the wheel. “I didn’t even get to finish my message,” said the driver, Wendy Sampson. One of the instructors handed her a citation for manslaughter. But to be fair, Sampson had a distraction that was not part of the simulation: her 4-year-old daughter’s curiosity. “Can I play? Can I play? Can I play?” Malena repeatedly asked, her head peering through the window of the Hyundai Accent. But a boisterous youngster is something Sampson said she is used to dealing with in the car. Texting was the real distraction, she said. “It was hard to text and drive because I can’t focus,” she said, adding that it was more difficult than the

drunken driving simulation. That came as no surprise to the instructors. “You’re completely removing your attention from the road” when texting, Jan Griffith said. Texting is an important part of the simulation because few drivers realize how dangerous it is, said instructor Ashley Douglas. “People who won’t drink and drive don’t think twice about texting,” she said. The simulation was available for six hours, and about 30 people participated in the first three, said Tracey Hosselkus, tribal education director. If a driver managed to avoid the obstacles, it seemed nearly impossible to avoid creating a dangerous situation. Even with the most simple, generic texts such as “I am driving” and “Be there soon” were enough for this reporter to cross the centerline more than a few times. While there were no casualties during that short drive through the virtual world — unlike during this driver’s

attempt to negotiate the same town in the drunken driving simulation — the fact that the car went into oncoming traffic highlights how dangerous texting behind the wheel can be, Griffith pointed out. “No matter who you are, if you have a distraction in the vehicle, it’s going to make you drive less safely,” he said.

Drunken driving For the drunken driving simulation, no hand-held devices were needed. Through the goggles to their heads, drivers saw a world where their reactions were delayed and appeared much more narrow and hazy. With a simulated bloodalcohol level of 0.1, over the legal limit of 0.8, the car seemed to have a mind of its own. It was nearly impossible to keep the car in the lane, no matter how focused the driver tried to be. “It wasn’t like you were in control of the wheel,” Vivian Charles said. Griffith said a 0.1 bloodalcohol level equates to six 12-ounce beers during one hour for most people. While both lessons are important, Hosselkus said she believes the reasons why drivers should not text behind the wheel is one that needs more emphasis. “You always see people driving by texting,” she said. “Even with the new laws . . . people do it all the time.”

Lecture tells of living off ‘nearshore’ By Diane Urbani de la Paz

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Gooseneck barnacles, the scientist found out, made some excellent eating. “They called them boots . . . and it was hard to get the meat out, but they were very, very tasty,” said Jacilee Wray, who learned about such things from the people who gathered good food from the beach. Wray, an Olympic National Park anthropologist, has studied life on and around the Elwha River and Strait of Juan de Fuca for 21 years. Amid plans for the Elwha dams removal and massive river restoration, Wray began interviewing Lower Elwha Klallam tribal elders about their now-past relationship with the “nearshore,” the place where river, beach and strait meet.

Monday night lecture And since history is key to restoration, Wray and her research partner, Anne Shaffer of the Coastal Watershed Institute, will present “Elwha Conversations: Celebrating the Marine World of the Elwha” this Monday night at Peninsula College, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd., Port Angeles. The free public forum will start at 6:30 p.m. in Room J-47, near the PUB inside the college’s J building. This is a chance, Wray said, to learn about the “lifeways” of the native people, people whose voices are sometimes drowned out amid all the hubbub over the National Park Service’s

$351.4 million Elwha restoration project. Wray and Shaffer began delving into this aspect of the Klallam story in 2004 through listening to elders such as Bea Charles, who died in 2009 at age 89, and Adeline Smith. “Adeline can remember things so clearly, it was like talking to a teenager,” Wray said. Smith is 92 now and sharp and determined to share her knowledge. For the Lower Elwha Klallam, the river was life. It brought them salmon, of course, which they smoked and laid by for the long winter. Then, when spring came, so did sprouts: thimbleberry, salmonberry, cow parsnips, nettles and more — a fresh, green salad the people were hungry for. Then there were the shellfish — sweet, proteinpacked treats on the rocks and sand. The nearshore, which stretches from Freshwater Bay to Ediz Hook and from the tree line to where the Strait is 100 feet deep, covers some 11 miles of linear shoreline and 100 acres of estuary, Shaffer noted.

Place of plenty Before the dams, this was a place of plenty. “When the tide was out, the table was set for gathering” is how Jamie Valadez, a teacher of Lower Elwha Klallam culture, remembers it. “When the good tides came, everybody went camping, celebrating having fresh food.” The shellfish and spring greens “act like good medi-

The lodge shown in this circa 1932 photograph was once part of a popular resort on the west side of the Elwha River. cine,” Valadez said. After the winter, “our bodies are starved from not having that in our diet.” You can only eat smoked salmon for so many months before you’re craving something fresh. The Klallam people were healthier when they lived on foods fed by the river and Strait, added Valadez. “We practiced the traditional diet just a generation ago . . . but now we’re not as healthy,” with diabetes and heart disease affecting many tribal members. The Elwha is on the brink of an enormous transition, as dams removal

begins this September, and it will take years to complete the process of freeing the river. Valadez is taking the long view.

Relationships “I’m excited about seeing the watershed come back and about rebuilding the relationship between people and the native plants and shellfish,” she said. Restoring the river, the salmon and the many species the salmon support will mean bringing life back into balance. In Monday’s “Elwha

Conversations,” Wray will discuss these interactions between people and the natural world, as well as the two riverside homesteads that were turned into a resort in 1929. With its lodge, sportfishing and intertidal swimming hole, this was the place to be in the summers of the early ’30s, Wray said. “Elwha Conversations” is an annual event — this is the seventh — presented by the Coastal Watershed Institute (www.Coastal, a nonprofit formed in 1996 to promote awareness of the need for wise ecosystem

management. Shaffer, working with volunteer scientists, runs the institute on grants and donations. Monday’s forum, which will include a discussion after Wray’s program, is an effort to engage people in conversation about how they interact with their environment, their community and its history. “The Elwha,” Shaffer said, “brings all three together.”

McKenna slams mandate in health care law By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Rob McKenna told Clallam County Republicans last week that he and other state attorneys general will keep fighting the provision in the health care law that requires everyone to buy health insurance. “We’re going to take this case all the way to the United States Supreme Court,” McKenna told a sellout crowd of about 150 at the Clallam County Republican Party Lincoln Day Dinner at the Port Angeles CrabHouse Restaurant on Friday. U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson ruled in January that the individual mandate in the Obama administration’s health care overhaul is unconstitutional, siding with 26 attorneys general who sued to block it, including McKenna.

McKenna criticized newspapers and the “alphabet networks” for saying the tea party movement has divided conservatives. “When 2,000 people showed up on the steps of the state Capitol a little under a year ago to show their support for our health care lawsuit, I didn’t see any division,” he said. “I saw unity.” What distinguishes the GOP is a “vigorous competition of ideas,” said McKenna, who was voted the most conservative member of his ninth-grade class in San Francisco. McKenna drew more applause when he said the U.S. Constitution and its

McKenna described his health care lawsuit as “the biggest case on the question of federalism and on the issue of whether there’s limits on federal power of our lifetimes.” Turning his attention to Clallam County, McKenna said he was “deeply proud of the outstanding Republican elected officials” who won in November. He praised Prosecuting Attorney Deb Kelly and Sheriff Bill Benedict in particular. “You ought to be proud being Republicans in the only county in the 6th Congressional District in which the Republican candidate won and won big,” McKenna said, referring to Doug Cloud’s 53.29 percent support against longtime incumbent Norm Dicks for the 6th Congressional District seat. Dicks, D-Belfair, carried the district and is now the top Democrat on the powerful House Appropriations Committee.


Often mentioned as a GOP candidate for governor, McKenna is serving his second term as the state’s top legal officer. He provides legal services to state agencies, the governor and the Legislature. In June, McKenna will become president of the National Association of Attorneys General. Clallam County GOP Chairman Dick Pilling hinted of a possible McKenna candidacy to replace Gov.

At its core, he said, the lawsuit is about the U.S. Constitution. “We can all agree that health care reform is needed in this country,” McKenna said. “There’s a lot with our health care system that we can improve, but this suit is about federalism. “It’s about the role of the federal government under our Constitution. It’s about the fundamental question of whether or not there will be any limits left on the Medicaid, Medicare power of Congress and on the power of the federal “That means more and government.” more of them will end up on Medicaid.

Eagle recovering in new raptor house Peninsula Daily News

SEQUIM — A juvenile bald eagle recovering from a gunshot wound has a new home. Staff and volunteers with the Northwest Raptor & Wildlife Center of Sequim have built an 8-foot-by-8foot wooden enclosure — complete with a platform, a perch and a dunking pool — for raptors undergoing treatment for illnesses or wounds at Greywolf Veterinary Hospital. The first resident is a 2-foot-tall, 10- to 12-pound eagle with a 6- to 7-foot wingspan found shot near Beaver on Dec. 15. The eagle nearly died when a portion of its left wing was shattered and is recovering slowly. He moved in after the enclosure was finished last Sunday. “He loves it,” said Matthew Randazzo, raptor center spokesman.

“He’s hopping around bathing himself, calling happily. He’s showing no signs of depression or boredom, which is common in a small enclosure.” The prognosis for the eagle remains “guardedly positive,” Randazzo said. “Both the gunshot wound and the resulting fracture in his wing are healing slowly,” he added. His caretakers don’t yet know if he will be able to return to the wild. “Though the eagle is expected to move permanently to the [raptor] center soon, there is no indication yet if he will be able to fly again,” Randazzo said. The eagle’s slow healing prompted volunteers to build the enclosure at the veterinary hospital so he would avoid adverse effects from being too confined, Randazzo said. But the addition of such a

Northwest Raptor & Wildlife Center

A juvenile bald eagle found shot near Beaver on Dec. 15 is slowly recovering at Greywolf Veterinary Hospital. home for recovering raptors was “something we’ve always wanted to do,” he said, adding that volunteers hope to add a second one soon. “Thanks to the financial support of the local communities, we’ve been able to do projects we’ve been meaning

to do for a number of years,” Randazzo said. The wooden building, which has slats in the sides and the roof for light and a partially covered roof to keep out the rain, will house all injured eagles, owls, hawks and falcons that require medical treatment at the hospital. “The Raptor Recovery Center was built from the ground up by center staff and volunteers,” said Jaye Moore, raptor center director, “specifically myself; my husband, Gary; Hal Clark; and Melissa and Matthew Randazzo. “The birds housed in the enclosure will have a much better chance of surviving than previously since they will have ample room to move around, exercise and clean themselves,” she said. Greywolf veterinarians volunteer their work to treat

between 100 and 200 animals — maybe more, Randazzo said — from the raptor center annually. They have done so since the early ’90s, when the Moores set up the nonprofit, Randazzo said. “Greywolf is our veterinary hospital for Sequim and Port Angeles,” Randazzo said. “They do 99 percent of veterinary work we need. “We couldn’t do our work at the center without the help of Dr. Mike Tyler, Sue Tyler, Dr. Maya Bewig and Dr. Jennifer Tavares from Greywolf, or the support of a largely local donor base,” he said. The eagle was believed to have been shot by a .22-caliber rifle. The search for the person who illegally shot the bald eagle continues. Bald eagles were removed from the federal list of

threatened and endangered species in 2007 but remain protected under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, according to the U.S. Department of Fish & Wildlife. A first-offense violation of the act can result in a fine of $100,000, imprisonment for one year or both. Penalties increase for additional offenses, and a second violation of the act is a felony. Tips leading to the capture of the person who shot the eagle can be phoned to the state Department of Fish & Wildlife, which is investigating the case, at 877-933-9847, or e-mailed to matthew@nwraptorcenter. com. The raptor center continues to accept donations for the care of the eagle at and NorthwestRaptorCenter.

PA, Quillayute levies gain more support By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Support for the Port Angeles School District property tax levy remained a solid 59.81 percent of voters after the Clallam County Auditor’s Office processed another 23 special election ballots Friday. The Quillayute Valley School District property tax levy picked up about 1 percent of additional support after 182 more ballots were counted Friday following Tuesday’s election. West End voters backed

the maintenance and operations levy for the Forks school district 912 to 472 — or 65.9 percent to 34.1 percent — in the latest results. No more counts will take place until the election is certified Wednesday, Feb. 23. “Today, we counted the ballots that have dwindled in since Wednesday,” when the office conducted its second count of ballots, Clallam County Auditor Patty Rosand said. “Among those were the last of the Forks drop box, which always take an extra

day to be delivered to us, which explains why most of the new results are for the QVSD,” Rosand said. Voter turnout in Clallam County stands at 49.6 percent. Of the 21,868 ballots mailed to registered voters in the county, 10,846 were returned.

Port Angeles The Port Angeles School District maintenance and operations levy garnered 5,656 yes votes to 3,800 no votes. School maintenance and

operations levies need a simple majority of 50 percent plus one vote to pass. The four-year Port Angeles school levy will collect about $8.2 million the first year in 2012, with an estimated tax rate of $2.65 per $1,000 assessed valuation. That means the owner of a $200,000 home in Port Angeles will pay about $530 a year in property taxes to the school district. The district’s current property tax levy rate is $2.43 per $1,000 of assessed valuation, meaning the owner of a $200,000 home will pay $486 to the district

this year. The amounts the levy will collect are $8,178,067 in 2012, $8,300,738 in 2013, $8,425,249 in 2014 and $8,551,628 in 2015. The levy will replace a four-year levy that will collect $7,439,312 this year, its final year.

Quillayute Valley Quillayute Valley’s twoyear levy of $626,348 asks for a $60,000 increase to maximize state-matching funds. The estimated rate would be $1.41 per $1,000

of assessed valuation, meaning the owner of a $200,000 house would pay $282 per year in property taxes. Forty-five west Jefferson County voters cast a ballot in the Quillayute Valley School District levy election. However, no new Jefferson County ballots were counted Friday.

Tribe: ‘Not afraid to step out and make it happen’ Continued from A1 Schoolchildren with Sally Fairbanks’ afterschool program sang traditional songs and kept time with drums. The Jamestown S’Klallam village in Blyn on U.S. Highway 101 east of Sequim features a largescale tribal center that overlooks the majestic head of Sequim Bay, as well as 7 Cedars Casino — the Peninsula’s largest casino — and a market and gas station, a Clallam County Fire District 3 station, the Northwest Native Expressions art gallery and the Jamestown Fireworks stand. The tribal center also houses the offices where the tribe’s commercial fishing, construction, golf course, restaurant and real estate properties are managed. The tribe oversees the education, health and welfare of its citizens and their children — one result of federal recognition. The tribe operates the Jamestown Family Health Clinic in Sequim to provide primary health care services to tribal citizens and nontribal residents.

Major investment The tribe’s first major investment was a multimillion-dollar casino that hit some rough patches during its first four years, resulting in layoffs, but Allen said “persistence and determination” — and slot machines — turned that all around. “In the short time, 30 years, it’s amazing what they’ve accomplished,” said Stan Speaks, Bureau of Indian Affairs regional director out of Portland, Ore., who has worked with the tribe since a year after it was recognized. “I always think of this tribe as one not afraid to step out and make it happen.” Speaks described the

cess with the Bureau of India Affairs, and attorney Emily Mansfield, who worked with the tribe in the 1970s as it wrote its first petition for recognition, also spoke briefly. “I was always pleased and proud to be involved with the original petition,” Mansfield told the celebrants. Schuster said the federal Department of the Interior had decided to no longer recognize the Jamestown S’Klallam tribe, requiring the tribe to rewrite its petition for recognition. Also addressing the event was Barbara Lane, an expert in tribal anthropology and rights who has given evidence in more than 40 court cases, including the Boldt decision that was pivotal in determining Native American access to fisheries and land claims.

Tribe’s champion Jeff Chew (2)/Peninsula Daily News

Allen called her “our champion,” saying the tribe held her in high esteem. Establishing government-to-government relations once again reaffirmed the tribe’s treaty rights to commercially fish in Puget Sound and the Strait of Juan de Fuca and ensured the tribe access to health care, education and needed housing assistance, Allen said. Ron Charles, who was Port Gamble S’Klallam tribal chairman at the time the Jamestown S’Klallams sought recognition, said he was glad his tribe had supported its neighbor. The Lower Elwha Klallam tribe also supported the The Jamestown S’Klallam tribe’s 30th anniversary celebration of federal petition. recognition includes elk stew, Dungeness crab, clams and smoked “The fact that our sister salmon. tribes endorsed us was the Allen recognized the Immemorial, to mark the The Cedar Bough Gift Shop clincher,” Allen said. _________ tribe’s publication’s special- occasion. inside 7 Cedars Casino for ist for her nearly yearlong The 50-page book is on $14.95.

Tribe Cultural Director Vickie Carroll recognized former tribal council members in attendance — Sandy Johnson, Marlin Holden, Les Prince, Elaine and Jack Grinnell, Jerry Allen and Steve Johnson as well as the present council, which is chaired by Liz Mueller and includes Theresa Lehman, Kurt Grinnell and Heather Johnson-Jock. Carroll said she grew up hearing the stories of the difficulties the tribe went through to achieve federal recognition. Today, she is heartened to know the tribe “can continue to be the strong people,” referring to the indigenous name of the Kallam, which means “the strong people.”

Owl: Declining at a rate of 2.9 percent each year Continued from A1 When the Bush administration took over in 2000, it tried to dismantle the Northwest Forest Plan and created its own spotted owl recovery plan that depended more on killing barred owls than protecting habitat. Found to be tainted by political influence, the plan was tossed out in federal court. The Obama administration has been working on its own. Some folks in timber country think it is time to start talking about whether saving the spotted owl is worth the jobs lost.

“What do we lose if the barred owl prevails in this struggle with nature?” said Doug Robertson, a commissioner in Douglas County, Ore., who wants to sell off a swath of federal lands to get them out from under logging restrictions and to create a kind of trust fund for counties in timber country.

‘What do we lose?’ “How are people, businesses and communities affected if spotted owls are replaced with barred owls? I think we are ready to have that debate.” Robert Anthony, a retired U.S. Geological Survey biol-

ogist and Oregon State University faculty, said if anything, the barred owl moving in means even more habitat is needed to save the spotted owl. “If you’ve got two species competing closely, then for both of them to do well will require more habitat,” he said. Scientists believe barred owls migrated from eastern Canada across the Great Plains in the early 1900s, using forests that popped up as people controlled wildfires and planted trees around farms. The barred owls arrived in Washington state in 1973, and their numbers have

taken off in the past decade. Scientists once believed there were about 7,000 breeding pairs of spotted owls, but since the barred owl moved in, there is no telling, Forsman said. Overall, the species is declining at a rate of 2.9 percent a year, but the decline is worst in Washington state, where the barred owl has gained the strongest foothold. The lack of hard evidence about how barred owls and spotted owls fit into the same forest makes saving the spotted owl a moving target, Anthony added. The U.S. Fish and Wild-

life Service is due to release a draft environmental impact statement in April on a series of experiments killing barred owls, but no one is sure it will go forward. There was an uproar when Fish and Wildlife killed six barred owls in Northern California in 2005.

Ethical questions Forsman said it would be incredibly difficult and expensive to try to kill all the barred owls and raises a host of ethical questions because no one is sure whether their migration

was natural or the result of human actions. Fish and Wildlife Service biologist Paul Henson will release the final recovery plan in coming weeks. Then he and his staff will tackle the critical-habitat designation, a decision expected next year. Henson said he thinks the recovery plan has a good chance of pulling the spotted owl out of its downward spiral, though not for the decades needed to grow back big old trees. He expects there will be room for logging to shape the young forests growing up.

Van: ‘He’s very fortunate’ House fire spreads through Continued from A1 “He’s very fortunate that he didn’t hit another motorist or strike anybody in the parking lot,” Ley said. Stensland didn’t have his foot on the accelerator when he hit the fence, the deputy said, adding that it appears he was still asleep when he hit the restaurant on the north side of the highway.

It was unclear how he managed to put the van into reverse. “He was still kind of out when witnesses came up and checked on him,” Ley said. The van drove about 2 feet into the restaurant at 2933 E. U.S. Highway 101, he said. “This was a big surprise,” said manager Dang Cen. “It was unbelievable.”

Stensland was not cited for a traffic violation, Ley said. The driver helped clean up the scene, the deputy said. Cen said the restaurant will remain open.

Budge of Seattle, said he hopes the lawsuit ensures that no one else is subjected to such treatment.

Hiatt said his client was allowed to grow more than the state medical marijuana law’s presumptive 15-plant limit because it takes a lot of marijuana to produce oil. Hiatt said the case cost Hensley a lot of time, grief and money. The Seattle attorney is supporting an initiative to legalize marijuana for all adults because he said he’s tired of seeing marijuana patients and their providers arrested.

Super Bowl, through the ages THE NUMBERS ARE in. More than 111 million households watched the Super Bowl last Sunday. That makes this year’s Super Bowl the Michael single-mostShowalter watched television broadcast of all time. Yes, even more than the Season 2 premiere of “Jersey Shore.” It’s hard to believe but completely true. 111 million: This is an impressive statistic considering that with the proliferation of cable television, most people have almost that many channels to choose from. At last count, I personally have more than 4 million cable options.

(Channel 3,467,000: The Types of Beans Network. Channel 2,032,961: The Sort of But Not Really That Interesting True Crimes Network.) Until last year’s Super Bowl, the “M*A*S*H” finale was the most-viewed show of all time. But you have to understand that in those days, there were only three channels to choose from and, if memory serves, the night of the “M*A*S*H” finale, the other two networks didn’t even bother to program anything. They just aired color bars and tone until “M*A*S*H” ended and then resumed normal broadcasting. Or something like that. (Full disclosure: My household can be counted among the 111 million whose televisions were tuned to the Super Bowl.) I had considered watching a “Golden Girls” rerun just as an act of rebellion — before conceding to myself that I actually like football and wanted to see the game.

Speaking Out

Some people watch the game just for the halftime show. Last year, it was The Who, and the year before that, Bruce Springsteen. This year, it was Black Eyed Peas. It was a good show, and I particularly liked’s seethrough plastic hair. Sometimes I wish I had plastic hair. Budget-wise, it would be great because I wouldn’t need to buy so many combs. People probably don’t realize that the halftime show wasn’t always such a spectacle. The first Super Bowl halftime show ever back in 1967 included a high school drill team. In 1987, they had the great rocker himself, Mickey Rooney, doing the halftime show. Black Eyed Peas, eat your heart out! In 1989, the halftime show hit an all-time low. The show was performed by an Elvis impersonator named

Elvis Presto. Only a few years later, they had the real Michael Jackson. I’d call that a major upgrade. Some folks watch the Super Bowl for the commercials. These people, my wife, for instance, are on the edge of their seats. She’s dying to know how they will try to sell me nacho-cheeseflavored corn chips this year. Or how these beer companies will manage to insinuate themselves into the fabric of what it means to be an American this year. But I digress. Some of us watch it for the football. It was a good game. But I did start to wonder: Why are there so many people involved? A pro football team is like a mini-country. There are three entirely different teams within the team: offense, defense, special teams. There is a coterie of coaches for each team within the team,

and each of those coaches has assistant coaches. And from what I can tell, the assistant coaches have assistant coaches. There are guys in the booth wearing headsets, there are guys assisting the guys in the booth. Is this really necessary? I suppose it’s all a part of the spectacle. And, apparently, people want to watch — 111 million people, to be exact. Here’s to the Super Bowl, nacho-cheese flavored corn chips and, fingers crossed, another season of football next year! ________ Michael Showalter is a comedian, writer, actor and director.

Salmon main food source for orcas Most of the fish from Canada, scientists say By Lynda V. Mapes The Seattle Times

SEATTLE — While here at home in their summer range, Puget Sound’s endangered orca whales dine almost exclusively on salmon from Canada, scientists have learned, underscoring the connected nature of the Salish Sea ecosystem. During the summers of 2004-2008, scientists tracked the J, K and L pods of orcas (also known as killer whales) in the western end of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and San Juan Islands to learn what they were eating and analyze where their food came from. No easy task, the work involved following the orcas in small boats and gathering killer-whale excrement and regurgitation, fish scales and other tissue with a fine mesh net after the whales ate.

No easy task Examination of the material, including DNA testing, revealed that the orcas select chinook salmon nearly exclusively for food, despite far more abundant numbers of pink and sockeye in the area at the same time. “They would literally knock pink salmon out of the way to take a chinook,” said Brad Hanson, biologist with the National Marine Fisheries Service Northwest Fisheries Science Center in Seattle and lead author of the paper, published last month in the online journal Endangered

“They would literally knock pink salmon out of the way to take a chinook.”

Species Research. Scientists took their examination a step further to learn by DNA analysis where the fish came from. Of the chinook salmon sampled, 80 percent to 90 percent were from British Columbia’s Fraser River and only 6 percent to 14 percent from Puget Sound-area rivers. “This means basically we are going to have to look very carefully at the link between chinook abundance and how well the whales do in terms of their survival,” said John Ford, another author of the paper and head of Fisheries and Oceans Canada’s Cetacean Research Program at the Pacific Biological Station in Nanaimo, B.C.

Brad Hanson biologist

are the largest salmon, with the most oily flesh. Chinook may also be easier to catch. They swim alone, rather than in schools, and go deep, where the water is dark. Pink and sockeye travel in schools at the upper water column, where sunlight penetrates, which would enable them to see the orcas coming. Chinook might be easier to surprise in the dark — but these factors are still a matter of speculation for scientists, Hanson said.

Speculation still exists

‘Why chinook?’ The selection of Fraser River chinook might be because there simply are a lot more of them, Ford said. Other experts agreed. “Why chinook? They are big. Why from the Fraser? They are abundant. Sometimes the simplest answer is where you start,” said Patrick Pattillo, special assistant to the director of the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife. He noted the strongest Puget Sound chinook run might be 25,000 fish returning to the Skagit River, while strong summertime Fraser River runs number four times that and more. It’s no surprise to Pattillo that orcas are found in the Strait and the west side of the San Juans when those waters are alive with millions of salmon finding

An orca off the San Juan Islands chows down on what likely is a chinook salmon from Fraser River in British Columbia, said Brad Hanson, lead author of a study on the feeding habits of orcas. their way home to rivers in British Columbia and Washington. Biologists were surprised when even Columbia River chinook turned up in the west end of the Strait last summer.

Biologists surprised “People were really scratching their heads over that,” Pattillo said. “Perhaps they were following food.” The most widely distributed cetacean, orcas exist in all of the world’s oceans and

most of its seas — though never in large numbers — and are always picky eaters. Some, such as the orcas in the North Atlantic, eat mostly herring, slapping their tails on the water to corral the fish together for harvest, Hanson said. Others, such as the transient killer whales of the eastern North Pacific, eat porpoises and seals but shun fish. Young orcas learn what is food for them from their families, with mothers and

siblings in family groups, called pods, cooperating in the hunt and sharing their catch. Smaller pink salmon may sometimes be used as “training” fish for young orcas in J, K and L pods. But when it’s time to eat, chinook is what’s for dinner.

Deliver more calories Partly, scientists believe that might be because chinook deliver more calories for the effort because they

The orcas apparently discern which fish to select by the shape of the salmon’s swim bladder, which they detect with echolocation clicks, Hanson said. The orcas’ fancy for Fraser River chinook in the summer is just one piece of the puzzle in seeing to their survival needs. The orcas’ winter travels are poorly understood, but they have been tracked as far south as Monterey Bay and as far north as the Queen Charlottes and are known to take salmon all along the outer coast, as those fish return to the Columbia River and Sacramento River systems and beyond. “It certainly has raised the question of providing suitable numbers of chinook available to sustain their current needs, both in the U.S. and Canada,” Ford said.

PORT ANGELES — City Hall is restricting traffic on Liberty Street near the area where a water pipe burst Thursday until the road can be repaired. The road between Sixth and Seventh streets, where the pipe burst, is closed to all traffic. The city is allowing only through traffic between Fifth Street and Lauridsen Boulevard.

Randy Brackett, city operations deputy director, said the road will be repaired as soon as the weather becomes dry enough. That could be this week, he said. A 6-inch water main ruptured at 4:52 p.m., leaving 10 customers without water. The rupture damaged the west shoulder of Liberty Street near its intersection with Sixth Street. Mud and silt from the current was reported as far

Prep Notes

Getting it wrong on many levels THE CARDINAL RULE of journalism: Get your facts straight before putting anything in print. Because I failed to do that after Thursday night’s Port Matt Townsend-ChiSchubert macum girls basketball game, the Cossell family suffered even more pain than necessary during an already trying and emotional week. For that, I cannot apologize enough. Jodi Cossell — mother to Chimacum High School sophomore Mallori and senior Jordan, and wife to Cowboys softball coach Bobby Cossell — passed away Friday after suffering cardiac arrest three days earlier. Services will be held next Sunday, Feb. 20, at Chimacum High School at a to-be-determined time, according to Real Robles of Kosec Funeral Home and Crematory in Port Townsend. When Port Townsend and Chimacum gathered to play its loserout playoff basketball game in Bruce Blevins Gymnasium that night, some thought Jodi had already died. Others knew she was going to be taken off life-support at Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton but was still alive. Mallori, a starting shooting guard for the Cowboys, and two other starters were not present. And many of the Cowboys in uniform wept openly during warmups. A moment of silence and a team statement submitted to public address announcer Scott Wilson from the Chimacum girls only added to the confusion. “We’re playing this game for Jodi Cossell not in a competitive spirit, but because it’s what she would want us to do,” the statement read, according to Wilson, also the publisher of the Port Townsend and Jefferson County Leader weekly newspaper. Having already heard rumors of her death from a number of sources at the game, I made the assumption those were true without verifying it with members of the Cossell family.

No follow through After the game, Chimacum girls coach Brad Burlingame used words like “circumstance” and “situation” to describe the state of Jodi’s health. Since I failed to ask for clarification on those statements — thinking he was instead referring to Jodi’s rumored death, rather than her actual dire condition — I also failed to discover the truth from him. It’s a mistake that led me to go to print in Friday morning’s editions with a story that was erroneous at press time. (The online version at was immediately corrected Friday morning.) It’s also a mistake I’ll regret for a long time to come. That’s not just because it reflected poorly on me as a journalist, but also because it inflicted even more trauma on a family that had been through so much in so short a time. On Monday, Mallori knocked down eight 3-pointers on the way to a 45-point night in a 67-42 playoffclinching Cowboy win over Orting. The next morning, Jodi — a Chimacum School District board member and employee of the Jefferson County Assessor’s Office — was rushed to Harrison Medical Center. To have the highest of highs (Mallori’s possible Chimacum record-breaking night) followed by the lowest of lows (Jodi’s heart attack) is bad enough. To then have to read about a family member dying before it even happened is more than anyone should have to bear.

Neah Bay’s Drexler Doherty (22) drives against a Lopez Island defender during Saturday afternoon’s Class 1B Tri-District game at Crescent High School in Joyce.

Devil of a time Neah Bay boys begin state run with blowout Peninsula Daily News

JOYCE — Gerrad Brooks likes what he sees. Entering the stretch run of his first season as Neah Bay boys basketball head coach, his Red Devils have the look of state contenders. Neah Bay knocked off Lopez Island 73-56 in the first round of the Class 1B Tri-District tournament Saturday afternoon. The win puts them just one win away from clinching a spot

in the 1B regional bracket, with a game at juggernaut Mount Rainier Lutheran (Tacoma) looming Tuesday night. “We’re looking great, everybody,” Brooks said after Saturday’s convincing win over Lopez. “Drexler [Doherty] is playing great, Mike Dulik is playing great, all the way through, I could go on and on. It’s just really a great team effort. Everybody just really steps up.

Boys Hoops “We’re clicking on all cylinders. We just need to continue doing the same thing were doing and we’ll be just fine.” On Saturday, it was Doherty in particular who carried the load for Neah Bay (18-2 overall). The senior shooting guard drilled 6 of 13 shots from 3-point range as he lit up the Lobos for a game-high 28 points. Titus Pascua added 14 points, including two 3s during a 21-12 Neah Bay first-quarter to help the Red Devils run out to an early lead they never relinquished. Turn



RENTON — An already impressive season for the Port Angeles boys swim team got even better Saturday. Charlie Parks and Austin Fahrenholtz each won district titles, vaulting the Roughriders to a fourth-place finish at the Class 2A West Central District swimming and diving championships at Hazen High School. With a group of 15 representing the Riders at district, five finished in the top four of an event to qualify for the 2A state championship meet next week Parks in Federal Way. That included qualifying marks in one relay team and four individual events. “It was exciting,” said Port Angeles coach Rich Butler, whose Riders were Olympic League champions this winter. “The boys swam lights out today, the second day at finals. “That was Also . . . across the ■ Rider board, which gymnastics was absosending two lutely fantasto state/B3 tic to watch. Sometimes it’s a struggle to swim that second day and they really stepped up.” At the head of the pack was Parks, who put up state qualifying finishes in two events. He won the 200-yard individual medley with a time of 2 minutes, 13.79 seconds; almost fourtenths of a second faster than the next closest finisher. Parks’ fourth-place finish in the 100 breaststroke in 1:09.46 was just the cherry on top since he had already put up a statequalifying time in that event earlier in the season. “I would think he’s got a fantastic chance to be in the top eight [at state in the IM],” Butler said Fahrenholtz had a big day as well, breaking the meet record in the 1-meter diving event with a score of 402.05 points. The junior nearly doubled the old record (234.05) on the way to claiming a district title and reaching state for the second straight year. Turn

Familiar spot Neah Bay girls near 5th straight state trip Peninsula Daily News

JOYCE — The Neah Bay girls basketball team has been here before. The Red Devils turned in another dominant performance, beating Tulalip Heritage 68-33 in the first round of the Class 1B Tri-District tournament on Saturday afternoon. Now they are one win away from reaching the state tournament — at least the regional round — for the fifth straight year. Cierra Moss shot 5 of 11 from the field on the way to a game-high 19 points while Rebecca Thompson added 16 points on 5-of-9 shooting in a Red Devil blowout victory. Neah Bay jumped out to a 34-13 halftime lead and never looked back as it clinched a spot in Tuesday night’s Tri-District semifinal against Northwest Yeshiva.

Staudacher drained 12 of 19 free throws on her way to 29 points as the Eagles raced out to a 10-4 firstquarter lead then held the Redskins (10-12) at bay the rest of the night. “The girls played their butts off,” Redskins coach Randy Maag said. “They gave it everything they had. “We had it. We were right there. We just couldn’t make a shot at the end.” Senior Bella Fox led the Redskins with 15 points in what turned out to be the final game of her high school career. Fellow senior Kerri Evalt added nine points. But a sizeable free-throw disparity (31-19 in favor of Cedar Park) and hard-luck shooting down the stretch kept the Redskins from extending their season. “I thought we had a great season. We really did,” said Maag, who loses four seniors (Evalt, Fox, Caroline Dowdle and Lydia Young) from this year’s team. “I have zero regrets, not a single one.

Girls Hoops Port Angeles 59, Foster 38 TUKWILA — The Roughriders snapped a three-year postseason losing streak with a seeding victory over Foster in sub-district action Saturday. “The girls are really excited with this win,” Port Angeles coach Mike Knowles said. “We took care of the ball and it paid off.” Leading the offensive charge for the Roughriders was Jessica Madison with 36 points, 18 of which came in a 23-12 Rider fourth quarter. Taylyn Jeffers dominated the boards with 14 rebounds. Only ahead by one point at the end of the first quarter, the Riders turned up the heat to pull away at the half and earn a No. 3 seed into the 2A Bi-District.

Sequim splits pair SUMNER —The Wolves split a pair of playoff games over the weekend to advance to Bi-District play Tuesday. Sequim won the most important game, beating Renton 49-39 in a loser-out game Friday at Sumner High School.

The Wolves turned around and lost a seeding game to Fife 63-54 on Saturday. Sequim now starts double-elimination play at Foss High School in Tacoma on Tuesday at 6 p.m. against the Saturday-night loser between Olympic and Eatonville. Results were not available late Saturday night. The Fife game was closer

than the score indicates. “It was neck-and-neck the whole game until the end when we had to foul,” Sequim coach Stephanie Lewis said. “We played an amazing defensive game. It was a great game for us.” It was tied 54-54 late in the game when Fife started making trips to the charity stripe. Lea Hopson had a team-

high 20 points for the Wolves while Haleigh Harrison added 15.

Nick Camporini torched the Hornets for 20 points to lead Sequim, which was tied with White River late in the fourth quarter only to be outscored 8-3 in the final two minutes.

The loss means Sequim must face sixth seed Renton (11-11) of the Seamount league in the first round of the double-elimination BiDistrict bracket Wednesday night at 6 p.m. at Foss High School in Tacoma. “Everybody that is in the tournament right now is a tough team,” Wolves coach Greg Glasser said. “We’re going to be playing against a team that we haven’t seen their style of play this year [with a lot of athletic players crashing the boards consistently]. “It will be interesting to see how our kids react.” White River 48, Sequim 43 Sequim Home

The Riders (15-7) had one of their best games of the year to dominate the Trojans, leading 30-19 at half-

time and 53-28 at the end of three periods. “We came out hard,” Port Angeles coach Wes Armstrong said. “Defensively, we came out with a lot of fire, and it was our best offensive execution of the season.” Ward also had four assists, part of a 23-assist night for the Riders, to go with his other stellar stats. “Ward played great on both ends of the court,” Armstrong said. “He was dominant.” Keenen Walker and Colin Wheeler also had great defensive games, Armstrong said. “They held Olympic’s two best scorers below their season average.” Wheeler also had 15 points and seven rebounds.

Gymnasts headed for state meet Peninsula Daily News

TUMWATER — Two gymnasts from Port Angeles High School qualified for the Class 1A/2A/3A state gymnastic championships at regionals on Friday. Roughriders Cecily Schwagler and Madylan Coventon both will be advancing to state after each qualified in multiple events. The state championships are set for the Tacoma Dome next Friday and Saturday. Also competing at regionals for Port Angeles were Angie Ababurko, Chelsea Clearman, Shay-lyn Gracey and Allison Hodgin. Conventon led the Rider charge by qualifying for state in four individual events. Among there were the uneven bars with a score of 6.85, floor exercise (8.2), vault (8.15) and balance beam (7.2). Schwagler was able to punch a ticket to state in two events after scoring an 8.35 in vault and 7.425 on the balance beam. Clearman also competed on vault, scoring a 7.7. Also scoring on bars for Port Angeles were Hodgin with 6.0 and Schwagler with 6.3. Also scoring on beam for the Riders were Ababurko with 6.05 and Clearman with 6.5. And competing on floor for the Riders but not reaching state were Clearman (6.15), Hodgin (6.25), Gracey (5.25) and Schwagler (7.7). “This meet went really well for our team and we are ready to go to the Tacoma Dome for WIAA state gymnastics championships this Friday,” Port Angeles coach Melanie Hyatt said.

Two divers earned state berths for the Wolves at the same meet Saturday. A few Sequim individual swimmers and a couple of relay teams finished just short, but may pick up wild-card berths this week. Earning outright state berths were divers Ezra Perkins and Connor Christianson, who finished in third and fourth, respectively, at the district meet. Coming close but just missing state berths in diving were Austin Clement in sixth and Cameron Harrison in ninth. “We hope Austin and Cameron will be wildcarded into state,” coach Linda Moats said. Noe Calderon placed sixth in the 100 breast and could be wild-carded to state, Moats said. The 200 medley relay team finished eighth while the 200 freestyle relay claimed seventh and the 400 free relay took 10th. “We hope one or more of the relays and Noe in the breaststroke will be wild- that represented Sequim in carded into state,” Moats swimming and diving this said. “If not, we are very season. “It was great fun.” proud of all of the athletes

A guide to Spring Training Plenty of options in Arizona, Florida By Tyler Kepner

The New York Times

Spring training camps open this week in Arizona and Florida, meaning 30 temporary tourist attractions are sprouting in the sunshine. So if the Ostrich Festival in Chandler, Ariz., isn’t your thing, or if you’re planning to skip the Strawberry Festival in Plant City, Fla., you still have plenty of options. ■ Goodyear, Ariz. — For the second year in a row, you’ll find the most valuable player of the previous World Series suiting up for a new team. The former Giants shortstop Edgar Renteria joins the Cincinnati Reds, following Hideki Matsui as a legend of the fall slipping on a new jersey the next spring. ■ Lake Buena Vista, Fla. — Can a man who turns 39 in April and is coming off a torn anterior cruciate ligament still be Chipper? Find out at Atlanta Braves camp, where Larry Wayne Jones is the last link to the championship years, now that Fredi Gonzalez takes over in the dugout for Bobby Cox. ■ Scottsdale, Ariz. — The Colorado Rockies are newcomers to greater Phoenix, opening the Salt River Fields complex with the Diamondbacks this spring in the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community. The teams had trained in Tucson, and its move puts all 15 Arizona camps in the Phoenix metro area. ■ Lakeland, Fla. — At Joker Marchant Stadium, you might expect clowns and balloons. Actually, Joker Marchant was the former parks and recreation director in Lakeland, the quaint home of the Detroit Tigers for 75 years. ■ Tempe, Ariz. — It is like a management training seminar at Los Angeles Angels camp, where Mike Scioscia imparts essentials to his coaching staff.

Three of Scioscia’s former coaches now manage other teams: Joe Maddon of the Rays, Bud Black of the Padres and now Ron Roenicke of the Brewers. ■ Tampa, Fla. — Juice up your flux capacitors, rev your DeLorean to 88 miles per hour and travel to the spring of 2006. Andruw Jones has just hit 51 home runs, Eric Chavez has just played a full season, Bartolo Colon has just won the Cy Young Award, and Freddy Garcia has just won the World Series clincher. ■ Peoria, Ariz. — If you want to gaze at a person with 600 career saves (or 601, to be precise), this is the only place to do it. Trevor Hoffman, who retired last month, will be a uniformed instructor at San Diego Padres camp. ■ Jupiter, Fla. — Bring your radar gun and point it at Javier Vazquez of the Florida Marlins. As a Yankee last season, Vazquez’s fastball averaged 89 m.p.h., a drop of 2 m.p.h. from 2009, and his performance suffered greatly. Will returning to the National League somehow make him throw faster? ■ Scottsdale, Ariz. — Dig out your old baseball cards, grab a Sharpie and stake out the coaches. Manager Kirk Gibson has five former All-Stars on his Arizona Diamondbacks staff: Don Baylor, Charles Nagy, Alan Trammell, Matt Williams and Eric Young. ■ Bradenton, Fla. — If you know how to pitch, ask for a tryout at Pittsburgh Pirates camp. The only 10-game winner here is Kevin Correia, who was 10-10 for the 90-win Padres last season. Pittsburgh signed him to a two-year, $8 million contract, despite a minus-1.8 wins above replacement value. Even if you don’t know advanced metrics, you can probably tell that’s bad.

The Associated Press

Don Cary, of Juneau, Alaska, paints a wall in the bullpen during final preparation for the start of baseball spring training at the Peoria Sports Complex stadium, home to the Seattle Mariners and the San Diego Padres, on Friday in Peoria, Ariz. ■ Surprise, Ariz. — There’s a special treat here for fans of both New York teams: well-liked outfielders recently nudged aside by the Yankees and the Mets. Go to Kansas City Royals camp and see Melky Cabrera and Jeff Francoeur fill spots until prospects start to graduate from baseball’s best farm system. ■ Fort Myers, Fla. — Who’s faster, Carl Crawford or Jacoby Ellsbury, who have six stolen-base crowns between them? If they’re ever going to race side by side, it will be at spring training for the Boston Red Sox. ■ Scottsdale, Ariz. — While you’re chomping on hot dogs and nachos, remember the rules: do not feed the Panda. Pablo Sandoval, the rotund third baseman, was an afterthought on the San Francisco Giants’ postseason joy ride. He was ordered to slim down to save his job and has been working with one of Barry Bonds’s trainers (gulp). ■ Kissimmee, Fla. — The Houston Astros are for sale — and not just 25 percent, with no slice of the regional sports network. So if you’re hungry for a

baseball team, and you really like guys who once played for the Phillies, make a bid. ■ Peoria, Ariz. — Block out everything at Seattle Mariners camp except this: a master craftsman, Ichiro, working on his trade in the field, on the bases and at bat. Hope Felix Hernandez is pitching when you go. ■ Jupiter, Fla. — Train your eyes on the batting cage when the St. Louis Cardinals practice. You can see Mark McGwire coaching Albert Pujols, and calculate the miles of home runs that have flown off their bats. ■ Phoenix — Try to find Oakland Athletics pitchers Josh Outman and Grant Balfour standing side by side. Then snap a gag photograph of the names on the backs of their uniforms. Every pitcher wants to be the out man; nobody wants to grant ball four. ■ Fort Myers, Fla — It took them a while, but the Minnesota Twins have finally signed a player from Japan: Tsuyoshi Nishioka, 26, a switch-hitting middle infielder who won the Pacific League batting title last season at .346.

■ Goodyear, Ariz. — Stop by and make a donation to the Bob Feller Museum in Van Meter, Iowa. Its founder, who died in December at 92, was a fixture at Cleveland Indians camp, signing autographs and chatting with fans for a gift to the museum. ■ Dunedin, Fla. — Are bills dragging down your budget? Worry you’ll never find financial freedom? Go to Toronto Blue Jays camp and ask General Manager Alex Anthopoulos for tips. After pulling off the impossible — shedding the $86 million remaining on Vernon Wells’s contract in a trade with the Angels — maybe he can help. ■ Glendale, Ariz. — Park yourself beyond the right-field fence (way, way beyond) when Adam Dunn takes batting practice for the Chicago White Sox. ■ Port Charlotte, Fla. — Casual Tampa Bay Rays fans will enjoy the antics of the ex-Red Sox Johnny Damon and Manny Ramirez. Serious fans will focus on starter Jeremy Hellickson and left fielder Desmond Jennings, the replacements for Matt Garza and Carl Crawford.

■ Glendale, Ariz. — If you see Vin Scully at Los Angeles Dodgers camp, say hello to a treasure of the game. Baseball’s richest voice is also a true gentlemen. ■ Sarasota, Fla. — Buck Showalter jolted the Baltimore Orioles to a 34-23 finish last season, and now they’re bringing the sluggers Vladimir Guerrero, Derrek Lee and Mark Reynolds to a renovated camp. Unfortunately for the Orioles, their best new starter, Justin Duchscherer, has worked five games in the past two seasons. ■ Surprise, Ariz. — Sit in the senior citizens’ section at a Texas Rangers game and cheer for relievers Darren Oliver and Arthur Rhodes. They’re the only lefthanders in the majors who will be active and older than 40 on opening day. ■ Clearwater, Fla. — Spring is the time to dream big, so bask in the brilliance of Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, Cole Hamels and Roy Oswalt for the Philadelphia Phillies. You have all season to fret about right field and the bullpen. ■ Phoenix — Whatever you do at Milwaukee Brewers camp, wear the retro caps from the Robin Yount era, with the lowercase m and b forming a baseball glove. We’ve got to start a movement to make this the Brewers’ official logo again. ■ Viera, Fla. — That’s not a misprint on your Washington Nationals program: Bryce Harper really was born in 1992. The top pick in last year’s draft, Harper received a 40-man roster spot as part of his five-year, $9.9 million contract. ■ Mesa, Ariz. — When you see Mike Quade, the new Chicago Cubs manager, remember his name is pronounced KWAH-dee, not kwaid. He’s friendly and would probably be happy to shake hands or wave hello. Just leave the Ryne Sandberg jersey at home. ■ Port St. Lucie, Fla. — If you find any loose change on the ground at Mets camp, kindly donate to the nearest ownership representative. Thank you.

PULLMAN — Brock Motum scored a career-high 19 points off the bench on Saturday to lead Washington State to a 75-71 victory over California. The Cougars (17-8, 7-6) saw five players score in double figures — and those five did all the scoring for the winners. Faisal Aden, also a reserve, scored 18 points. “It wasn’t a pretty game, but a win’s a win,” Motum said. “Not all games are going to be pretty. Sometimes you have to grind it out.” DeAngelo Casto scored 14 points despite an ankle injury that kept him out for part of the second half. Klay Thompson had 13 points and Reggie Moore finished with 11 points for the Cougars. Washington State starters Abe Lodwick and Marcus Capers were held scoreless in 37 combined minutes. “We’ve been seeing so

The score stayed at 74-71 and Moore made a free throw for the Cougars to close the scoring. “He’s [Gutierrez] a good player, there’s no doubt,” Washington State coach Ken Bone said. “He’s a very hardworking kid. “Any coach in the conference would love to have him on their team. He’s that kind of kid.” Harper Kamp had 17 points and nine rebounds for Cal, and Jeff Powers scored 14 points. Powers started in place of Allen Crabbe, who was out with a concussion suffered on Thursday at Washington.

Thomas missed his first four shots of the night and was additionally flustered by getting poked in the eye by teammate Darnell Gant that forced Thomas to the bench for about 5 minutes. “I made sure he knew that he hurt me,” Thomas joked. He returned with 8 minutes left in the half after spending time with an ice bag on his face, but it wasn’t until the closing stretch that

Thomas took off, fueled by a little swagger toward Stanford star Jeremy Green. Thomas’ 3-pointer with 2:38 left was his first points of the half and he followed with another 28 seconds later. Overton then scored on a driving layup while being fouled, the start of a fivepoint possession for the Huskies. Stanford coach Johnny Dawkins was issued a technical foul and Thomas hit both free throws.

Overton then converted his free throw and suddenly, the Huskies’ lead was up to 15. Thomas closed the half with a pair of deep 3s in the face of Green, including a 25-footer just before the halftime buzzer that capped a 17-6 run and gave the Huskies a 48-31 halftime lead. Thomas’ 14-point spurt was more than he’s scored in nine full games this season.

The Pirates beat Seattle 82-74 to improve to 10-2 in the North and stay atop the standings with Skagit Valley, whom they beat Wednesday.

Our Peninsula


Plants native to the Elwha River Valley fill a growing yard outside greenhouses built by Olympic National Park near Robin Hill Farm County Park to revegetate the valley after the removal of two dams. The park is between Port Angeles and Sequim.

The good the bad the dirty Peninsula Daily News

SEQUIM — A army of plants is girding for battle. The foes include Stinky Bob and other nefarious greenery that could invade 750 acres of basin area created when two Elwha River dams are removed. The warrior defenders are being cultivated at Olympic National Park’s 5-acre Matt Albright Native Plant Center at

and replenish, 10 stocks of anadromous salmon and trout. Demolition is expected to be finished in the project, the largest of its kind in the nation’s history, by September 2014. While the dams are being dismantled and through 2018, Allen and park volunteers will scatter thousands of pounds of seeds and plant 400,000 shrubs and trees from seeds collected from the dam-removal project’s boundaries. The good-guy greenery will be planted in the bowl-like basins exposed by the draining of Lake Mills behind Glines Canyon Dam and Lake Aldwell behind Elwha Dam once the dams are torn down. The $4.1 million revegetation project will take place on a grand scale. Lake Mills is 200 feet deep at its deepest point, and Lake Aldwell 100 feet.

into the free-flowing river at the bottom of the two basins. That would threaten the chances of reviving the salmon run by depleting oxygen and clouding the water, Allen said. “Our primary mission is to help nature reclaim these areas,” Allen said. To carry out that mission, park workers want to ensure that invasive species such as giant knotweed and Stinky Bob are crowded out by plants native to the area.

30 volunteers so far

Workers began collecting seeds from the Elwha River area in 2008. About 30 volunteers have participated in collecting and propagating work so far. Only plants native to the Elwha River area will be used for revegetation. Many of the physical properties of the site will be revealed only when the dams are down.

areas of bright sunlight, and the [sediment] will have effects on what vegetation will be successful,” Allen said. “We will identify what plant species do better and which ones aren’t doing well and go with the ones that are doing well.” As the dams are torn down, the race will be on between the good guys and the bad guys. Allen and park volunteers will plant 80 species of plants, hearty varieties with strong root systems to prevent erosion and the strength to crowd out Stinky Bob and his cohorts such as Canada thistle.

‘Nasty guys’ “We do have a rogue’s list of nasty guys,” said Allen, so immersed in his charges that plant names rolled off his tongue first in their Latinate forms before he struggled just a little with the garden-variety-English version. Here’s what Allen is up against when battling the likes of Stinky Bob: According to the state Noxious Weed Control Board, Stinky Bob, or Geranium robertianum, is highly adaptable and can grow in rocky outcrops. Bob “ballistically” ejects seeds as far as 15 to 20 feet and is considered “a vigorous plant,” according to the weed board’s website, Turn

Plants: ‘Opportunity to do something unique’ Continued from C1 The plant is just one reason the basin sites “need to be occupied,” Allen said. “Once the sites are occupied, invasion by exotics is much tougher,” he explained, adding that the point is not to leave a “blank slate” for invasive plants. Allen’s goal this year is to produce about 27,000 plants for the Elwha restoration project at the facility, which produces plants for all the park’s vegetation restoration.

Nurturing plants At the center, plants in various stages of development are in paper bags, refrigerators, pots and the greenhouse. Some are lined up in rows in an open area near the greenhouse, looking dry and dead but with tendrils of strong, deep roots plastered against underlying dirt. Stored in bags in a shed at the plant center, some seeds — such as goatsbeard,

Fraction of 1% survival

“You’ll see sort of a green fuzz out there,” Allen said. Allen is hoping volunteers, who are already helping with the revegetation plan and have erected several structures at the plant center, will continue their efforts, grow in number — and be as inspired by the project as he is. “What drives me and the volunteers is, here we have an opportunity to do something unique,” he said. “We have an opportunity to do some good.”

That seems like a lot, but every seed has a fraction of 1 percent of survival when “broadcast,” or flung, instead of potted, he said. “For any plant to become mature, they’re winning the lottery,” Allen said.

No easy answer to feral cat problem A LONG-HAIRED BLACK cat came running up the front steps leading to the porch and yard. Clutched in its mouth was a bird — a towhee. Morning coffee was ruined. The next morning, I noticed another towhee in the backyard. It was scratching and feeding in good towhee fashion. It had no tail at all, and it didn’t take much guessing to figure out what had happened. Like lizards, birds can lose their entire tail when escaping from a predator. When writing a column about cats or “cat problems,” I always feel a disclaimer is called for. I don’t hate cats, but I do have strong feelings about how their owners should care for them. I know that many people who have cats also feed birds. Most of them control their pets, but I still hear that old excuse. “It’s their nature to kill birds.” I grew up hearing that from my aunt, and even my sister has used it.

Bird Watch

Paul Carson

A spotted towhee perches on a branch, safe from prowling cats. I know this is controversial, but over the years, I have seen numerous cats come and go in our neighborhood. They were allowed to run all over the place, and few lived more than two or three years. They just “disappeared.” The last cat we had, our wonderful Black Spook, lived to be almost 20. A brain tumor, not an accident or another animal, was responsible for

his death. This problem with cats killing birds and other small creatures isn’t going to stop, and sweeping it under the rug while pretending it doesn’t exist isn’t an answer. Having grown up on a farm with lots of animals including cats and dogs, I have no patience with people who don’t take care of their pets. My grandfather and my father handed that down to

our family, and how their cats and dogs loved them. If you have cats you love and take care of, I thank you. The birds will thank you, too, but we all need to speak up for those animals who don’t receive the same care and attention.

Boy seen abusing cat needs help now DEAR ABBY: A friend told me something recently that was so disturbing I’m having trouble sleeping. “Marie” was at a minimall when a man parked his car next to hers and walked into one of the stores, leaving a boy about 8 years old in the back seat with a cat. Marie saw the boy abuse and torture the animal. She said she could hear the cat howling through the closed vehicle. When the man returned to the car, my friend approached him and told him what she’d seen. Abby, the man did not say one word. He climbed into his car and drove off. I haven’t been able to get the image out of my head. That child learned his behavior somewhere, and

dear abby Abigail

his father

Van Buren condones it.

If Marie hadn’t been so shocked, she would have scribbled down the man’s license number and reported the incident to the police or the SPCA. Horrified in Wisconsin

Dear Horrified: What your friend witnessed was a child in dire need of emotional help and a parent with his head in the sand. Emotionally healthy children do not abuse animals. For the father to have ignored what your friend

told him is very sad. Of most concern to me is the fact that children who abuse animals become increasingly aggressive and sometimes go on to abuse other children. I hope the father reads my column and recognizes the fact that this son desperately needs counseling now. Dear Abby: I just turned 28. I have a fulltime job and am also pursuing a career as an actress, which takes up a lot of my spare time. I have good friends, and I’m a people person. I’m attractive, have a good personality and consider myself to be intelligent. I’m pretty good at putting myself out there. I talk to guys I see in the grocery store, in my office building, any-

more luck meeting men if you go places that nice people go, where there’s less pressure. How about volunteering some time in your community — the library, a hospital, the police department, a shelter? I recommend places like these because they offer the chance to form relationships with more depth. Even if you don’t find Mr. Right, you may meet someone who can introduce you to someone eligible.

Dear Looking: Please don’t lose hope. But let’s review the venues in which you have been searching. I’m struck by the fact that all of those you mentioned require you to make a “quick sale.” With speed dating, you establish that you’re both available, and there’s a superficial attraction but not much else. Bars are the worst places I can think of to look for a serious relationship. No one’s at their best after downing a couple of shots, and the noise level isn’t conducive to meaningful conversation. The Internet has been known to bring results, but many people — of both sexes — are wary because so many users fudge the facts on dating sites. Singles events are better, but you might have

where I can. I try to smile at everyone when I’m out and about. I ask friends to set me up but haven’t met any nice single men who are interested in dating. Almost all my close friends are married or in long-term relationships. At parties, it’s usually a bunch of couples and me. I feel like the token single friend. I have a busy life, and the theater hasn’t exactly been a great place to meet straight guys, but where is a good place? I have tried speed dating, online dating, bar-hopping and singles events to no avail. Why can’t I find a nice guy who’s ready for a real relationship? I’m starting to lose hope.

Prune with the end results in mind I’M SORRY, HORTICULTURE (and Pittsburgh) fans, but all the excitement of my team playing in, then winning, the Super Bowl definitely got me off my garden game plan. But pruning is far more vital than any sporting event, so let’s press forward with my ever-present pruning companion as the No. 5 reason to prune.

Intelligently “alter” its form This is indeed the essence of all pruning because anytime you prune, it should be because you desire to alter or control, even manipulate, the character, shape and habits of the plant. Whether you are cognizant of the consequences of your pruning, cuts or not, the plant or branch will respond in an absolute and predictable manner. That is the basis of all pruning. You should always be pruning

Document: Inmate said he killed officer The Associated Press

MONROE — A Washington State Reformatory inmate confessed to killing Corrections Officer Jayme Biendl in the prison chapel, saying he was angry with the way she spoke to him minutes earlier, according to a search warrant affidavit made public Friday. The affidavit said inmate Byron Scherf acknowledged the crime to detectives Wednesday in a videotaped interview. T h e interview came after Scherf asked detectives for a chance to tell them what happened, the Biendl affidavit said. He acknowledged his right to remain silent, then confessed. “I’ll just get right to the point. I’m responsible for the death of the correctional officer at the Monroe, uh, correctional facility,” he said, according to excerpts cited in the affidavit. “I strangled her to death on Jan. 29 at approximately 8:40 p.m. in the chapel.” Scherf, 52, reportedly told detectives he was angry at Biendl over how she had spoken with him sometime between 8:15 and 8:25 while he worked in the prison chapel that evening. The content of the remarks Scherf claimed she made was not detailed in the affidavit. “I became very angry . . . and the more that ran through my mind the mad-

Suspect asked for others’ prayers The Associated Press

MONROE — A search warrant issued in the death of state Corrections Officer Jayme Biendl said inmate Byron Scherf had asked people to pray for him because he was struggling with temptation. Scherf submitted a prayer request Jan. 27, asking others who attended the chapel at the Washington State Reformatory to “pray for me for very pressing temp- Scherf tations I have been dealing with — I want to do the right thing but am really struggling.” The chapel’s lone officer, Jayme Biendl, was strangled Jan. 29. Scherf, 52, volunteered at the chapel where he worked as a janitor and clerk. Surveillance camera footage from the prison revealed as part of search warrants last week shows Biendl propping open the door to the sanctuary for Scherf at 8:08 p.m. so he could get baptismal blankets. He then returned to a chapel office where he spent most of the evening. A fellow inmate brought Scherf his jacket around 8:30 p.m., closing time. The jacket had been left in the sanctuary. der I got,” Scherf was quoted as saying. “I got to the point where I knew I was going to kill her.” Scherf’s public defender did not immediately return

An inmate told investigators that he and Scherf left the chapel at the same time the night of the killing, but Scherf said he needed to go back, claiming that he’d left behind his hat.

Picked a lock? Detectives found an unusually bent piece of wire, possibly a paperclip, in a chapel office garbage can. Suspecting the wire had been used to pick a lock, detectives fashioned a replica. It worked to open chapel door latches. Detectives obtained a judge’s approval to seize all the property that was in Scherf’s cell, including paperwork and his electric guitar. They’ve also sought all prison records regarding Scherf’s history with the corrections department. In affidavits, the detectives said they believe the records may be helpful in resolving questions about how Scherf got along with corrections officers and others behind prison walls. According to one affidavit, Scherf kept psychological records in his cell that quoted one of his relatives. The relative suggested Scherf “would not do well with, or would not interact well with female prison guards an/or prison female prison officials.” “Oh really,” Scherf wrote in the margin of that document, detec-

tives told the judge. Investigators also found papers in Scherf’s cell titled “Details of My Life History.” In it, the author wrote of a brief stint in the Army in 1976, the same year Scherf briefly served. Whoever wrote the report also bragged about being able to “pull a psychological scam” to end his military service. Investigators also recovered in the chapel a cartoon that an inmate told them Scherf gave Biendl. The cartoon makes reference to somebody being a “wolf in sheep’s clothing.” The inmate told investigators that Scherf apparently gave Biendl the cartoon shortly before she was killed, perhaps the same day, according to court papers.

On lockdown The reformatory remained in lockdown last week. There is no timetable for lifting the restrictions, said Monroe Correctional Complex spokeswoman Cathy Kopoian. The other four prisons at Monroe are in a less restrictive lockdown, meaning inmates can move around in their housing units but there is no outside recreation. There has been no visitation at any of the prisons in the Monroe complex since the Jan. 29 homicide.

Scherf said he decided to hang back and attacked Biendl from behind, it said. He said he fought with her for three or four minutes, with Biendl trying unsuccessfully to radio for

help, according to the document. Scherf said Biendl bit and scratched him and stomped on his foot trying to get free. They wound up on the

ground and he used a cable from an amplifier to fatally choke her, he reportedly told detectives. He was described as becoming emotional as he said, “I’m certainly sorry.” The affidavit was written in support of a search warrant to look for blood, skin, sweat or other trace evidence that could corroborate Scherf’s account. The warrant is one of several made public in the last few days. One released Thursday said Scherf had asked others who attended the chapel to pray for him two days before the killing because he was struggling with temptation (See accompanying story). Scherf is a three-strikes offender serving a life sentence for rape convictions. He volunteered at the chapel where he worked as a janitor and clerk. He is now jailed in Everett for the homicide investigation. The search warrants make clear that detectives are preparing for a possible death penalty case. Scherf has been serving life in prison without possibility of release since 1997 after he was convicted of three attacks on women. The search warrants show investigators have been spending considerable time with Scherf since the killing. For example, they obtained a judge’s permission to carefully photograph Scherf’s nude body under special lights that make it easier to spot injuries, including hidden bruises.

Lawyer: Soldier may testify in Afghan killings By William Yardley The New York Times

SEATTLE — The cases against four of the Army soldiers accused of killing three unarmed Afghan civilians for sport last year could hinge on a fifth soldier whose lawyer said he was prepared to plead guilty to the crimes and testify against the others. The fifth soldier, Spec. Jeremy N. Morlock, 22, who is accused in all three deaths, has signed a Morlock detailed confession as part of his effort to avoid a life sentence. Morlock, who is scheduled to face a court-martial March 3, is seeking a sentence of 24 years. The lawyer, Geoffrey

Nathan, said prosecutors had agreed to the deal, though Army officials said Friday that they would not comment on the matter. A military judge would have to approve any plea deal and could alter any sentence in it. A copy of the so-called stipulation of fact accompanying the plea offer and obtained by The New York Times is signed by Morlock and by an Army defense lawyer — but not by an Army prosecutor.

Accused in 3 killings Morlock and Staff Sgt. Calvin R. Gibbs are the only two soldiers who have been accused in all three killings, which took place in January, February and May of last year. In the stipulation of fact, Morlock repeated his assertions that Gibbs was

the ringleader. All five soldiers — members of a Stryker Brigade from Joint Base LewisMcChord south of Seattle who were based near Kandahar, Afghanistan — are accused of faking combat situations to justify killing Afghans with grenades and guns. “During the entire incident, the Accused knew that the Afghan was unarmed and no threat to himself or any of his fellow Soldiers,” the stipulation says, referring to the killing in May. “There was no lawful justification or excuse for the killing or any of the actions taken by the Accused during the shooting of the Afghan male.” Morlock, who is from Wasilla, Alaska, has previously implicated himself and other soldiers in the killings, including in video statements that were broad-

Wagnon in the killings, but later said he had been involved in the February shooting. According to Morlock’s signed stipulation, when Gibbs asked him to participate, Wagnon responded, “This isn’t my first rodeo; I’m in.” Colby Vokey, a civilian lawyer for Wagnon, said his client is innocent. “In order to get a deal,” he said. “Morlock is compelled to offer testimony against others, including Wagnon.” “We are definitely going to trial,” he added. “Michael Wagnon has not had anything to do with any kind of planned killing of any person whatsoever.” Lawyers for the other defendants also said they expected their cases to go to ‘My first rodeo’ trial. Last year, Morlock iniA lawyer for Spec. Adam tially did not implicate C. Winfield, who is accused cast on television last fall. His lawyers had sought to discredit those statements, saying that Morlock was under the influence of prescription medications and not mentally competent at the time. “He knows what he’s up against,” Nathan, a civilian lawyer, said in explaining why his client is now pursuing the plea deal. “We have fully educated him as to his risk factors.” All five of the soldiers have been referred for courtmartial. Two of them, Spec. Michael Wagnon and Pfc. Andrew Holmes, were referred only recently, around the time that Morlock’s stipulation was drafted Jan. 28.

in the May killing, said that his client had pursued a plea deal but had been unable to come to terms with Army prosecutors. Lawyers in the case say two photographs show Morlock and Holmes holding up the heads of dead Afghans as their bodies lie on the ground. But they dispute how effective the photographs would be as evidence. Physical evidence in the case is limited, with investigators admitting they did not do detailed crime scene investigations out of concern that Afghan villagers would become angry if they learned the killings were suspicious. “Their own mouths convicted them, their own statements,” Nathan said. “Other than that, there’s no evidence. There are no bodies.”

Rescued horse to help recovering soldiers on base By Noah Haglund The Daily Herald

EVERETT — An 18-yearold horse is on her way to help soldiers recover from battlefield stress and brain injuries, more than a year after leaving a Sultan farm that was at the center of an animal cruelty case. The chestnut mare named Cisca had been under the county’s care since September 2009, when she was seized as part of a criminal investigation. Of 10 horses Snohomish County animal control took in, Cisca was the last to be adopted. Debbi Fisher recently picked up Cisca for a new life at Rainier Therapeutic Riding, the program she runs at her farm in Yelm. Cisca will be part of a team of horses being used to help soldiers from Joint Base Lewis-McChord recover from post traumatic stress disorder and head injuries. Her new life comes with a new name: Liberty. “She has got the most perfect disposition and loving eye,” Fisher said. “I think the soldiers and her are going to help each other a lot.” Cisca had been one of 19 horses living on a 2.3-acre farm on Trout Farm Road in Sultan. Veterinarians recommended that the county seize 10 of them. Three of the seized

equines were euthanized. One of the surviving horses gave birth to a colt that was adopted last year by a local family. The trial for the horses’ former owner, Mary Peterson, began Monday in Snohomish County Superior Court. Peterson, 40, is charged with six counts of first-degree animal cruelty. She could face up to a year in jail on the felony charge, plus court-ordered restitution and other penalties. The county’s bill for that case now tops $60,000. With Cisca’s departure, the county is no longer caring for any horses, county animal control manager Vicki Lubrin said. County officials say they seize horses as a last resort, only after exhausting efforts to work with the owner to resolve any problems. Caring for the horses is expensive, costing taxpayers an average of $18 per day per animal. Despite those expenses, the county is careful about where it places horses for adoption. When the county’s animal control manager met Fisher and learned about her mission at Rainier Therapeutic Riding, she knew Cisca’s easygoing personality and temperament would make a good match. “I was just impressed with how thoroughly they

screen their horses and the testing they do to make sure that it’s the right fit for their program,” Lubrin said. “They’re very, very thorough.” Therapeutic riding programs have proliferated as a way to help children and adults heal and gain confidence. The North American Riding for the Handicapped Association, or NARHA, was founded in 1969 and now certifies more than 800 therapeutic riding centers, in the United States and beyond. Some centers need ponies and smaller horses for their work with disabled or injured children. That’s not the case in Fisher’s program, where the average rider is a 225-pound soldier. The largest client, at the moment, is 290 pounds. “For my therapeutic riding program, I need bigger, stronger horses,” Fisher said. Cisca, now Liberty, fit the bill at 1,100 pounds. She stands an impressive 16 hands, or 5 feet 4 inches tall at the withers, the part of the back between the shoulder blades. Liberty will have a place to stay for the rest of her life. Fisher, 52, comes from a military family. One of her sons is a Marine Corps sergeant and

Fisher and her husband, Col. Randall Fisher, moved to Washington from Oregon after Sept. 11, 2001 when he was activated to return to full-time duty with the Air National Guard and assigned to the Western Air Defense Sector. Col. Fisher died in a car accident in 2006. That left Debbi Fisher to manage their farm with her

late husband’s big Appaloosa named Root Beer. She could have moved back to Oregon, but thought, “God led me here to stay here.” She started her riding program in September, after going through certification with NARHA. Now, 23 soldiers are in Fisher’s program. They start on the ground, getting to know their horse, building confi-

dence and trust. They don’t even get on a horse until the fifth lesson. “I keep the same horse and the same volunteer with them through the whole eight-week program,” Fisher said. “They feel very comfortable, even though they sometimes have a lot of anxiety about getting on the horse for the first time.” Turn

2 stress-relief dogs prepare for Iraq By Adam Ashton The News Tribune

TACOMA — As far as retrievers go, Zack is exceptionally impervious to distraction. He calmly walked at his handlers’ side through a training ground at Joint Base Lewis-McChord on Friday while automatic weapons and cannons fired in the background. He greeted teams of camouflaged soldiers and offered his golden head for petting. Zack is one of two dogs preparing for a mission in Iraq with a medical company charged with providing stress relief for deployed soldiers. The canines’ job is to draw out soldiers who normally would avoid a therapist or to just give someone a break from thinking about a long tour in the desert. Soldiers are “built to be strong, so we go to them,” said Capt. Andrea Lohmann of DuPont, who’s deploying with about 50 members of the 98th Medical Company and bringing a stress-relief black Labrador named Butch. Zack and Butch will be the seventh and eighth stress-relief dogs provided to the Army for combat deployments since 2007 from VetDogs, a New Yorkbased nonprofit that also gives specially trained canines to disabled veterans. The animals are “icebreakers” for the therapists and psychiatrists who walk through bases and check in

on soldiers. People who have worked with the pets said the sight of a wagging tail can lift a soldier’s spirits. “They made contact with units that did not want anything to do with huggy, mental health people,” said Lohmann’s commander, Lt. Col. John Gourley. Gourley saw stress-relief dogs in action on his last deployment to Iraq in 20072008. Two Labradors, Budge and Bo, became popular attractions on bases in and around Mosul, to the point that soldiers would look forward to their weekly visits.

A needed break “The biggest problem is the soldiers want to love on the dogs too much,” he said, describing the fistfuls of table scraps that would find their way to the pets. It did not matter if the soldiers wanted to see a therapist. The dogs gave them a needed break, Gourley said. “They’re therapeutic in their own way,” he said. Iraqi dogs don’t provide that kind of outlet. They tend to run in feral packs, have mangy fur and are generally neglected because of customs that regard dogs as unclean. The Army tries to keep them away from bases out of concern that they could carry diseases, but some soldiers have adopted Iraqi dogs and even brought them home to the states. VetDogs looks for canines

that adapt well in different settings, are friendly with strangers, play when it’s appropriate and relax in one-on-one therapy, said instructor Valerie Cramer. She screens the candidates while they’re puppies, taking them to firing ranges to get them accustomed to the sounds of guns and to an Air Force base to acquaint them with helicopters. The work pays off when she hears about her dogs helping soldiers in harm’s way. “It’s absolutely made a difference,” she said. “It’s just five minutes of relaxing, forgetting where you are. “Dogs are universal. They bring out the relaxed, emotional part of us.” Butch, Zack and two other dogs awaiting a military assignment arrived at Lewis-McChord last week. Lohmann took home Butch, where he joined her two other dogs. “She plays like crazy,” Lohmann said. “We’ve already bonded.” She has not deployed with stress-relief dogs in the past but can see the value of bringing one. “A dog can remind someone of home,” she said. That could make the difference in steering someone to therapy or in providing the break that makes a session with a psychiatrist unnecessary. “Our goal is to reduce the stress. Our goal is not to have every single person in theater in therapy,” Lohmann said.

Two years later, Carl got pneumonia, nearly died, and was released to go home with son, Gary, to his condo presumably to die in the care of Hospice. With a diet rich in limburger cheese, sweet onions, fresh bread and beer, he recovered and found strength to go on Carl’s Great Adventure with son, Gary. After 8,000 miles visiting his siblings and other family members and lifelong friends, he landed with his son in Port Townsend, Washington, with the hope of returning to his home in Florida. However, his strength and stamina declined and falling became a regular companion. On January 27, he fell a last time, contracted pneumonia again and died a week later.

Carl Frithjof Nelson, 94, passed away peacefully in the loving home and presence of his son, Gary, daughter-in-law, Elaine, grandson, Erik, and close friend, Kevin Clark, at 2:15 a.m. February 3, 2011. Born in Erie, Pennsylvania, in 1916, he was a deckhand on a dredge in the West Indies in the late 1930s preparing San Juan harbor for battleships. After returning to Erie in 1938, he met Elna Blackmer, fell in love, got married on the day World War II was declared, had son, Gary, and built warships for the Navy. At war’s end, they sold everything, bought an Airstream trailer, a Jeep and a ’41 Pontiac, and took to the road for nearly two years; tried to sell insurance in Pasadena, California; built and sold a spec house in Altadena, Califor-

Fulton on systems for the Atlas missile. In 1958, he quit and teamed with his son to build and open a beatnik coffee house in Newport Beach, California, later sold out and bought a poultry ranch, traded that for an apartment house, traded that for another chicken ranch and finally cashed out and retired at age 52 and went traveling again. After more than 30 moves, he and wife, Elna, bought land near Rochester, Washington, and built a home of Elna’s design where they lived a minimalist lifestyle growing their own vegetables and paying cash for everything. After 20 years, Carl fell out of a tree; he was not injured, but Elna decided it was time to simplify life, so they sold out again and bought a condo (sight unseen) in St. Petersburg, Florida. After 67 years of marriage, Elna died in Florida.

When soldiers notice the horses’ reaction, they try to lower their anxiety levels to calm the horse. “They think they’re helping the horse,” Fisher said, “but they’re really helping themselves.”

PORT ANGELES — In addition to pre-removal work on the Elwha dams project, a smaller river restoration project has been under way on the North Olympic Peninsula — the Morse Creek restoration project, just east of the Port Angeles city limit. Last fall, construction

was completed on 19 logjams, which have now redirected Morse Creek back into the meandering channel it once inhabited. North Olympic Peninsula Skills Center Natural Resources students helped this restoration effort. They planted native conifer trees next to the creek and created geo-

Forest Service moves to assume more control Broader rules meant to resist political whims By Jeff Barnard

The Associated Press

GRANTS PASS, Ore. — Hoping to break a legal logjam that has stymied logging as well as ecosystem restoration, the U.S. Forest Service is revising its planning rules to take more control over national forests and find more common ground between industry and conservation groups. The old rules, dating back to the Reagan years, designated certain animal species that must be protected to assure ecosystems are healthy. However, the system became the basis of numerous lawsuits

that sharply cut back logging to protect fish and wildlife habitat. The new rules will call for monitoring a broader range of species, including plants, while giving forest supervisors greater discretion to decide what science to apply and which species to protect, depending on local conditions.

Healthier forests Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said from Washington, D.C., that it’s in everyone’s best interest to have forests that stay healthy amid climate change and economic demands. “Rather than responding to the political pressure of the time, it would be much better to say to the scientists, ‘What is the best way to make this forest the most resilient it can be,’” Vilsack told The Associated Press. The conservation group that

forced the revision by persuading a federal judge to throw out the last one said the proposal represents a dangerous rollback of mandatory protections and gives too much discretion to forest supervisors. “This flies in the face of the principal that has been in place, that the Forest Service’s job is to keep common species common,” said Rodger Schlickeisen, president of Defenders of Wildlife. The 155 national forests and grasslands managed by the Forest Service cover 193 million acres in 42 states and Puerto Rico. Balance between industry and conservation in those areas has been tough to find since existing rules took effect in 1982. One revision of the rules by the Clinton administration and two by the Bush administration were thrown out by federal courts. Turn



Gregoire OKs $300 million in tax breaks for business By Manuel Valdes The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — Gov. Chris Gregoire has signed into law a $300 million tax break for businesses and a temporary pay increase for people newly claiming unemployment, marking an end to a week of frenzied negotiations among legislators, business and labor interests. The new laws, which are being enacted from a pair of bills, halts a scheduled 36 percent jump that businesses were about to see in their unemployment taxes. It also makes the tax break permanent. Gregoire says that about 80,000 businesses will benefit from the tax break. The new law includes a $25 a week pay increase to about

Also . . . ■ Lawmakers may resort to gimmick to heal deficit/D3

140,000 people claiming unemployment between March and November of this year, Gregoire said. The pay bump is temporary, though. That money is being drawn from nearly $100 million the state is getting from the federal government due to changes in unemployment law. The increase to the unemployed will be capped at $68 million. Once that money runs out, the benefit increase will no longer exist. “It’s a good bill for Washington businesses,” Gregoire said during

bill-signing ceremonies Friday. Gregoire had demanded demanded that the Legislature deliver a bill in order to avoid the business-tax jumps. Lawmakers did so Friday afternoon when the state Senate approved on a 41-4 vote a House bill that combined both the tax breaks and the temporary unemployment pay increase.

Benefits and taxes During floor voting remarks, Sen. Janea Holmquist Newbry, R-Moses Lake, said many members of her party were uncomfortable with approving more unemployment benefits while businesses are attempting to rebound from the moribund economy. Turn

Centenarian gets new lease on life Lots of history in tug getting a PA makeover In 1912, Woodrow Wilson was elected the 28th president of the United States, the Model T was being produced at a furious pace by Ford Motor Co. and the largest passenger steamship of her day, Titanic, sunk on her maiden voyage from Southampton, England, to New York City. It is also the year that the fledgling Victoria Tug Boat Co. across the Strait of Juan de Fuca acquired its first vessel, an 80-foot, steam-powered tug named Swell. Michael Lever and Judith Fleming recently acquired Swell, and she’s now stowed in Port Angeles — in the Commander Building at Platypus Marine Inc. for the past few weeks. By the end of February, she will be back in the water. But for a few finishing touches to be handled in Vancouver, British Columbia, she will be ready to join her companion vessel, Nautilus Explorer, as Nautilus Swell and offer luxury live-aboard scuba diving excursions in the waters of British Columbia and Alaska. The first 99-plus years Swell spent in the salt chucks of British Columbia saw the decline of wind as the propulsion of choice for merchant ships, steam-generating boilers give way to diesel-fired engines and nuclear reactors become the preeminent power plant for some of the largest ships in the world. For her first 45 plus years of work life — which began by towing commercial sailing vessels in and out of the Strait of Juan de Fuca — she also towed limestone barges from Texada Island to a large

On the waterfront cement plant on Sellars Vancouver Island as well as coal scows from the west coast of Vancouver Island to the mainland of British Columbia. In 1955, her coal-fired steam boilers were removed in favor of a contemporary 400-horsepower diesel engine. A fair amount of her decking and planking was also replaced with Douglas fir timbers that had been reclaimed from the discards of the Granville Street bridge in Vancouver, B.C., after the span was demolished in February 1954. For the next few years, she went through a series of commercial owners who, at differing times, had her towing barges from a copper mine in Alice Arm, working on dredging operations in Powell River and towing gravel barges to and from various locales along the Inside Passage. She even suffered the indignity of running aground in Porlier Pass. Ross Coburn purchased Swell in 2004 and spent nearly two years having her rebuilt, restored and repowered for use as a mother ship for his sportfishing business on B.C.’s central coast. The hull was lengthened and reframed, the main deck house was extended 18 feet, a new stem was installed and her keel was

and a lifeboat that will straddle the stern rail. Capt. Tim said their dive guests come from all over the world, and the one common language they share is that of the photograph. To accommodate the shutterbugs, a custom camera station is being built on the upper deck. An aluminum roof is being installed over a countertop that was affixed to the exterior bulkhead of the aft house. Along the bulkhead, just above the counter, a dozen or so electrical plugs were installed that will accommodate both North American and European electrical power protocol. The hull of Nautilus Swell received new caulking, and the process of applying a new finish to the decks will begin shortly. Before the vessel leaves the Commander Building, she will have received a bold new coat of paint from stem to stern and from the masthead light to the keel. The electronic systems in the wheelhouse have been upgraded including

The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Strokes are rising dramatically among young and middle-aged Americans while dropping in older people, a sign that the obesity epidemic may be starting to shift the age burden of the disease. The numbers, reported last week at an American Stroke Association conference, come from the first

large nationwide study of stroke hospitalizations by age. Government researchers compared hospitalizations in 1994 and 1995 with ones in 2006 and 2007. The sharpest increase — 51 percent — was among men 15 through 34. Strokes rose among women in this age group, too, but not as fast — 17 percent. “It’s definitely alarming,” said Dr. Ralph Sacco, American Heart Association president and a neurologist at the University of Miami. “We have worried for a while that the increased prevalence of obesity in children and young adults may take its toll in cardiovascular

adding an additional radio system and installing the navigational safety tool and collision avoidance system known as AIS. The berthing compartment that was once contiguous with the wheelhouse has been reconfigured and is now a stand-alone suite. An inspector from the Marine Division of Transport Canada was at Platypus Marine recently and conducted a full inspection of Nautilus Swell and without reservation approved her for conducting charters in Canadian waters. It is still going to be a little while before Capt. Tim and his crew get under way with their first boatload of enthusiastic divers. When they leave Port Angeles, it will be off to Vancouver, B.C., to have an air compressor and Nitrox System installed for filling scuba tanks. And then there will be time required for outfitting and provisioning the boat. Come springtime. Nautilus Swell will begin a new phase in her life’s journey — which I suspect will be more leisurely than she

For those over 65, there were nearly 300 stroke cases among 10,000 hospitalizations in the more recent period studied. For males 15 to 34, there were about 15 stroke cases per 10,000, and for girls and women in that age group there were about 4 per 10,000. At the University of California at Los Angeles, doctors are seeing more strokes related to high blood pressure and clogged arteries in younger people, said Dr. Jeffrey Saver, director of the stroke center at UCLA. Early estimates from 2007 death certificates suggest that stroke is now the nation’s fourth leading cause of death instead of the third, partly because of better treatments and prevention among the elderly. “But at the same time we’re seeing this worrisome rise in mid-life,” Saver said.

Winston-Salem, N.C., said her hospital also is seeing more strokes in younger people with risk factors such as smoking, obesity, high blood pressure, alcohol overuse and diabetes.

Diet soda and strokes Also at the conference: n A preliminary study raised concern about diet soda and stroke risk. Researchers surveyed about 2,500 adults in the New York City area at the start of the study and followed their health for nearly 10 years afterward. Researchers found that people who said they drank diet soda every day had a 48 percent higher risk of stroke or heart attack than people who drank no soda of any kind. Researchers adjusted for differences in other risk factors, such as smoking and high blood pressure. Lead researcher Hannah Gardener of the University of Miami had no explanation for the findings but said that for those trying to cut calories, “diet soft drinks may not be an optimal substitute for sugar-sweetened beverages.” n The same study also found higher risks for people consuming more than 1,500 milligrams of salt a day — the limit the American Heart Association recommends. Researchers found that stroke risk rose 16 percent for every 500 milligrams of salt consumed each day. Those who took in at least 4,000 milligrams had a more than 2.5 times higher risk of stroke than those who limited themselves to 1,500 milligrams. A teaspoon of salt contains about 2,300 milligrams of sodium. About three-fourths of the salt we eat, though, comes from processed foods.

State lawmakers mull gimmick to cure deficit Peninsula Daily News news services

OLYMPIA — Lawmakers say a budget gimmick may be the only way to close part of this year’s state budget shortfall. House Ways and Means Chairman Ross Hunter said that a one-day delay in payments to public schools from the last day of June to the first day of July may be inevitable. “It’s pretty much a foregone conclusion unless something more attractive comes up,” said Hunter, D-Medina. Lawmakers want to get this year’s budget shortfall taken care of so they can start work on the larger, two-year shortfall of about $4.6 billion. Most legislators have given up on the idea that the state’s economy might pick up some steam. The latest state tax collections were down, according to a monthly Economy and Revenue Forecast Council report that said January revenue was $105.9 million below forecast. So the state’s near-term financial situation might be getting worse as budget negotiators await the next long-term revenue forecast, due March 17. “If we were $300 million up in collections over the Christmas season, the doom and gloom around here would be lifted considerably,” Hunter said. “We’re not $300 million up; we’re down, and it’s concerning.” The state House and Senate were trying to resolve seven or eight major differences on their supplemental budget plan. House Majority Leader Pat Sullivan said last week that they resolved a couple of them. Senate Majority Leader

Yakamas to issue own license plates By Phil Ferolito

Yakima Herald-Republic

YAKIMA — Rather than paying an annual vehicle-registration fee to the state, Yakama tribal members will soon be able to go to their own government for plates and registrations. Last week, the tribe began a pilot program to issue its own vehicle registrations and tabs to several members. By March, the program will open to all members. According to a Yakama Nation news release issued Wednesday, they will be good for travel on all roads throughout the country. Although the state has been discussing details of the program with the roughly 10,000-member tribe for nearly a year, officials at the state Department of Licensing weren’t aware it was ready to launch, according to spokesman Brad Benfield. “At this point, those conversations are still ongoing, and we still have a lot of issues with them,” he said. Among them, he said, the state would like to have access to the tribe’s database of registered vehicles. According to the tribe, all local authorities will have access to tribal vehicle registration by contacting Yakama tribal police anytime of the day or night. The tribe said it will also make information available to top law-enforcement agencies throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico. Eventually, the tribe will join a national database where vehicle registration can be accessed by authorities, according to the tribal news release. Administered by the Yakama tribal police, the program will abide by standards outlined by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators, the release said. It’s not clear how much license plates and annual tabs would cost tribal members. Phone calls by the Yakima Herald-Republic to tribal leaders were not immediately returned. A sovereign government, the Yakama Nation holds a treaty with the federal government and isn’t bound by state law in many areas.

Asserting its sovereignty, the tribe is following the example of other tribes in other states who have for years operated their own vehicle-licensing programs. Tribal governments began starting up their own auto-licensing programs in 1993 after the Sac and Fox Nation won a U.S. Supreme Court case against the Oklahoma Tax Commission. The tribe claimed that the state did not have a right to tax tribal members through car-tab sales. Several Oklahoma tribes, including the Cherokee and Osage nations, have auto-licensing programs. In Minnesota, the Red Lake Nation issues tribal licenses.

Cigar smoking lounges Legislators are looking into the possibility of allowing people to smoke cigars and pipes at some cigar lounges and tobacco shops. Bills proposed in the state House and Senate would allow cigar lounges and retail tobacco stores to apply for a special state endorsement. Cigarettes would still be banned, and the designated smoking area would be physically separated from other areas that prohibit smoking. No more than 100 cigar lounges and 500 retail tobacco shops in the state could allow smoking. The cost of applying for the state endorsement would be $15,000 for cigar lounges, and $5,000 for

Electric-car owners not only don’t buy gasoline, they also don’t pay gas taxes. A bill introduced in the state Senate would try to get back some of that money for the state. Under the legislation, electric-car owners would pay a special $100 fee each year when registering their vehicles. It’s a matter of fairness, said Senate Transportation Committee Chairwoman Mary Margaret Haugen, D-Camano Island. “Electric cars will be driving on the highways right along with all the other cars,” said Haugen, the bill’s lead sponsor. “One of our biggest issues is preservation and maintenance of our existing highways. We believe they should be paying their fair share.” Senate Bill 5251 would require electric-car owners to pay the $100 fee, in addition to any other required fees and taxes, when the vehicle is first registered, and when the registration is renewed. In comparison, the state Department of Transportation estimates someone who drives a gasoline-powered car 12,000 miles per year pays an average $204 in

tobacco stores. The stores would have to pay the fee every year to renew their endorsements. The money from the House bill would go to scholarship funds, and the Senate measure would support health care.

A legislative committee has heard conflicting testimony on whether jobs would be created by a bill to clean up and prevent stormwater runoff. The bill would charge a 1 percent fee on the wholesale value of petroleum products, pesticides and fertilizers, raising an estimated $100 million a year. It is opposed by oil, agriculture and other business interests. A similar bill failed to pass in 2010. Environmental groups told the Senate Ways and Means Committee on Thursday that the bill would put people to work on cleanup efforts. But a representative of the Washington Farm Bureau says agricultural jobs could be lost because the biggest costs for farmers are fuel and fertilizer. The measure is SB 5604.


WASHINGTON — In a time of unparalleled aviation safety in the United States, reports of mistakes by air traffic controllers have nearly doubled — a seeming contradiction that puzzles safety experts. The near collision last month of an American Airlines jet with 259 people aboard and two Air Force transport planes southeast of New York City, coupled with the rise in known errors, has raised concerns in Congress that safety may be eroding. A US Airways plane carrying 95 people crossed paths with a small cargo plane in September, coming within 50 to 100 feet of each other while taking off from Minneapolis.

Lisa Brown, D-Spokane, said Friday that she thought a final agreement was very close to being hammered out and that a vote on those early cuts could come next week.

The state faced a more than $1.1 billion gap before last December’s one-day special session.

Love has its healing power, studies show Peninsula Daily News news servics

NEW YORK — Love may make the world go ’round, but is it powerful enough to lower one’s blood pressure, reduce depression and speed the healing of an injury? With Valentine’s Day coming up on Monday, science says yes. “Our relationships help us cope with stress, so if we have someone we can turn to for emotional support or advice, that can buffer the negative effects of stress,” says Julianne Holt-Lunstad, an associate professor of psychology at Brigham Young University, who has been publishing studies for the past 10 years on social relationships and their influence on health and disease. Most studies on the health benefits of love have focused on married couples. In 2007, after reviewing research on the health effects of matrimony, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services issued a 68-page report that found that, in general, married people are happier, live longer, drink less and even have fewer doctor’s

appointments than unmarried folks. Of course, “we all know that not all marriages are happy,” Holt-Lunstad says. Very few of the thousands of marriage studies take the quality of the union into account; “I can think of maybe seven.” So, Holt-Lunstad set out to see what kind of links there might be between love and health, and in 2008, she identified one, in a study published that year about marriage and blood pressure. She found that happily married people have lower blood pressure than unmarried people. But unhappily married people have higher blood pressure than both groups. So, when it comes to blood pressure, at least, you’re probably better off alone than in a troubled marriage. Loving spouses tend to encourage preventive care, reinforce healthful behaviors such as exercise and flossing, and dissuade unhealthful ones, such as heavy drinking, according to many studies. Romantic relationships also can provide a sense of meaning and purpose in life.

Smoking grows in hiring consideration Many employers rule out Tacoma hospital group won’t hire smokers job hopefuls who light up By A.G. Sulzberger The New York Times

NEW YORK — Smokers now face another risk from their habit — it could cost them a shot at a job. More hospitals and medical businesses in many states are adopting strict policies that make smoking a reason to turn away job applicants, saying they want to increase worker productivity, reduce health care costs and encourage healthy living. The policies reflect a frustration that softer efforts — like banning smoking on company grounds, offering cessation programs and increasing health care premiums for smokers — have not been powerful-enough incentives to quit. The new rules essentially treat cigarettes like an illegal narcotic. Applications now explicitly warn of “tobacco-free hiring,” job seekers must submit to urine tests for nicotine and new employees caught smoking face termination.

Shift prompts debate This shift — from smokefree to smoker-free workplaces — has prompted sharp debate, even among anti-tobacco groups, over whether the policies establish a troubling precedent of employers intruding into private lives to ban a habit that is legal. “If enough of these companies adopt theses policies and it really becomes difficult for smokers to find jobs, there are going to be consequences,” said Dr. Michael Siegel, a professor at the Boston University School of Public Health, who has written about the trend. “Unemployment is also

bad for health.” Smokers have been turned away from jobs in the past — prompting more than half the states to pass laws rejecting bans on smokers. But the recent growth in the number of companies adopting no-smoker rules has been driven by a surge of interest among health care providers, according to academics, human resources experts and anti-tobacco advocates. There is no reliable data on how many businesses have adopted such policies. But people tracking the issue say there are enough examples to suggest the policies are becoming more mainstream, and in some states courts have upheld the legality of refusing to employ smokers. For example, hospitals in Florida, Georgia, Massachusetts, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Texas, among others, stopped hiring smokers in the last year and more are openly considering the option. “We’ve had a number of inquiries over the last 6 to 12 months about how to do this,” said Paul Terpeluk, a director at the Cleveland Clinic, which stopped hiring smokers in 2007 and has championed the policy. “The trend line is getting pretty steep, and I’d guess that in the next few years you’d see a lot of major hospitals go this way.” A number of these organizations have justified the new policies as advancing their institutional missions of promoting personal wellbeing and finding ways to reduce the growth in health care costs. About 1 in 5 Americans still smoke, and smoking

And employees who smoke cost, on average, $3,391 more a year each for health care and lost productivity, according to federal estimates. “We felt it was unfair for employees who maintained healthy lifestyles to have to subsidize those who do not,” Steven C.

The head of the Cleveland Clinic was both praised and criticized when he mused in an interview two years ago that, were it not illegal, he would expand the hospital policy to refuse employment to obese people. “There is nothing unique about smoking,” said Lewis Maltby, president of the Workrights Institute, who has lobbied vigorously against the practice. “The number of things that we all do privately that have negative impact on our health is endless. “If it’s not smoking, it’s beer.

that prohibit discrimination against smokers or those who use “lawful products.” Some of those states, like Missouri, make an exception for health care organizations. A spokesman for Philip Morris said the company was no longer actively working on the issue, though it remained strongly opposed to the policies. Meghan Finegan, a spokeswoman for the Service Employees International Union, which represents 1.2 million health care workers, said the issue was “not on our radar yet.” One concern voiced by groups like the National Workrights Institute is that such policies are a slippery slope — that if they prove successful in driving down health care costs, employers might be emboldened to crack down on other behavior by their workers, like drinking alcohol, eating fast food and participating in

Besides the good health of employees, the health care system benefits from lower costs. “Not only are cigarettes bad for your health, they drive up costs for employers like Franciscan,” said Dave Lawson, Franciscan’s vice president of human resources. “A typical employee that smokes costs his or her employer an additional $4,000 a year or more in increased medical costs and lost productivity.” Franciscan hospitals include St. Clare Hospital in Lakewood, St. Francis Hospital in Federal Way, St. Joseph Medical Center in Tacoma, St. Elizabeth Hospital in Enumclaw and St. Anthony Hospital in Gig Harbor.

be hired. The person will be invited to reapply in six months. The Franciscan Health System is the first member of the Washington State Hospital Association to require job applicants to be nicotine-free. The Tacoma-based group has 8,100 employees in three counties. Chief Operating Officer Cliff Robertson said it is going to “walk the talk” about creating healthier communities. Current employees who smoke will be grandfathered in under the old policy, and will not have to undergo nicotine screening. Franciscan has banned tobacco use in its facilities since 2006.

nicotine, while others operate on the honor system.

Existing employees While most of the companies applied their rules only to new employees, a few eventually mandated that existing employees must quit smoking or lose their jobs. There is also disagreement over whether to fire employees who are caught smoking after they are hired. The Truman Medical Centers, here in Kansas City, for example, will investigate accusations of tobacco use by employees. In one recent case a new employee returned from a lunch break smelling of smoke and, when confronted by his supervisor, admitted that he had been smoking, said Marcos DeLeon, head of human resources for the hospital. The employee was fired.

Starting next month, a group of five hospitals in the south Puget Sound area will no longer hire smokers — or anyone who chews, sniffs, snorts or dips tobacco products. Tacoma’s Franciscan Health System is adding a qualification for prospective employees — they must be tobacco-free. Franciscan spokesman Gale Robinette said the company will add a tobacco-detecting urine test to its post-job-offer drug test beginning March 1. That test can detect tobacco use from cigarettes, cigars, chewing tobacco, snus and snuff and even from nicotine patches and heavy second-hand smoke. If tobacco is detected in the prospective employee’s system — no matter whether that tobacco comes from living with smokers or using a nicotine patch— the person won’t

The flight from Seattle to Denver had just pulled away from the gate Thursday morning when the little stowaway was spotted. The 737 jetliner returned to the terminal and passengers and crew boarded another plane about 90 minutes later. Airline spokeswoman Bobbie Egan said the plane won’t be returned to service until maintenance workers make sure the rat didn’t damage equipment or chew any wires — and an exterminator certifies the plane is rodent-free. Egan said workers also are trying to figure out how the rat got aboard. She said in cold weather “sometimes rodents can seek shelter in strange places.” The Associated Press ity District.

CONCORD, Calif. — Round Table Pizza Inc. has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, but executives insist that it won’t affect the pizza chain’s 483 restaurants for now. The company listed debts ranging from $10 million to $50 million. In court documents, the Concord-based company blamed its financial troubles on an expansion it launched just before the recession hit.

WASHINGTON — Ending a long-running dispute with pediatricians and breast-feeding advocates, the Internal Revenue Service announced last week that it would grant nursing mothers a tax break on pumps and other breastfeeding supplies. The ruling, which will affect expenses incurred starting in 2010, will allow mothers to use pretax money from their flexible spending accounts to cover the cost of breast pumps and other supplies. Those without flexible spending accounts may deduct breast-feeding costs if their total unreimbursed medical expenses exceed 7.5 percent of their adjusted gross income and they itemize. Breast-feeding advocates said the new policy would help millions of working mothers continue breastfeeding after returning to the workplace, and improve the health of infants who receive antibodies from the breast milk.

December as rising oil prices pushed the value of imports up faster than U.S. exports. The deficit increased 5.9 percent in December to $40.6 billion, the Commerce Department reported Friday. A widening deficit is bad for the U.S. economy. When imports outpace exports, more jobs go to overseas workers than to U.S. workers. For all of 2010, the U.S. trade deficit rose to $497.8 billion, a 32.8 percent surge. It was the biggest annual percentage gain since 2000.

Gas prices highest ever for mid-February By Chris Kahn

The Associated Press

NEW YORK — U.S. gasoline prices have jumped to the highest levels ever for the middle of February. The national average hit $3.127 per gallon Friday, about 50 cents above a year ago. The price is about 6 percent higher than on that date in 2008. The next day, pump prices began a string of 32 gains over 34 days. They rose 39 percent over five months, eventually hitting an alltime high of $4.11 per gallon in July.

Jefferson-Clallam gas price For the North Olympic Penin-

sula, regular gas is averaging $3.31 a gallon, compared with $3.22 a month ago and $2.83 a year ago. The average price in the Seattle-Bellevue-Everett area was $3.30 on Saturday. Although gas prices are expected to rise, most experts aren’t expecting a reprise of 2008, when the price spike forced many drivers to join car pools and trade in gas-guzzling SUVs for fuelefficient cars. “It would be a mistake to think we’re going to have that all over again,” said OPIS chief oil analyst Tom Kloza. He said oil demand will slide in the U.S. by May, as refineries slow fuel production while they switch to summer blends of gas.

World oil consumption also may not rise as much as expected. Kloza contends that oil traders are more cautious now, after getting burned when oil plunged to $33 per barrel in early 2009, six months after hitting $147 per barrel. Even the most bullish traders no longer think they can chase commodity prices higher without risk, he says. Still, Kloza expects gas to reach $3.50 to $3.75 per gallon this spring because of the usual runup in prices ahead of the summerdriving season. That would mean an increase of 12 to 20 percent from the current level.

Gasoline climbed almost 10 percent since November as oil prices rose because of factors including stronger demand from China, a frigid winter in the U.S. and tension in Egypt, Kloza said. The price of Brent crude, a key oil contract that also influences U.S. gasoline prices, hit $100 per barrel in January for the first time since 2008. “It was a perfect storm,” said Kloza.

fell $1.15 to settle at $85.58 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. That’s lower than the price on Jan. 25, when the demonstrations in Egypt began. Investors have been concerned the anti-government protests over the past 18 days could spread to other parts of the Middle East and disrupt oil supplies. Now that Mubarak has stepped down, the military says it will oversee a democratic transition to a new government. “The market is getting whipsawed,” oil analyst Stephen Schork said. “Everyone is playing the card that stability in Egypt is good for oil” shipments.

Altered corn is approved for ethanol By Andrew Pollack The New York Times

District Ranger Bill Gamble points out a hole indicating beetles have attacked a tree on the Umpqua National Forest in Diamond Lake, Ore. The U.S. Forest Service is working on a sweeping rules revision.

A timber-industry group said it was happy to see more recognition of the role of forests in providing jobs in rural communities, and felt that allowing objections to be lodged before planning decisions are made will lead to better outcomes. However, rules applying to protecting a diversity of species need to be clarified, and the requirement to consider the best available science goes against efforts to streamline and simplify regulations, said Ann Forest Burns, vice president of the American Forest Resource Council.

about two-thirds filled with packing peanuts. The packing peanuts are believed to have contributed to his death by restricting his ability to move, Urquhart said. Urquhart said the box was upright when the boy was found in the locked closet by his father about an hour after the game began.

The Food and Drug Administration had previously found the corn safe to eat. The Agriculture Department said the food processors should work with Syngenta to address their concerns. “We are pleased that these segments of industry continue to dialogue with Syngenta on research and testing efforts,” the department said in a press release. The corn approval is the third recent one in which the Agriculture Department has had to weigh the risks of the spread of a genetically engineered trait. Two weeks ago, it approved the unrestricted cultivation of biotech alfalfa over the objections of some environmental groups and the organic food industry.

SEATTLE — The King County Medical Examiner’s Office said a 10-year-old Shoreline boy died from “positional asphyxia” after he got stuck headfirst in a box of packing peanuts. The boy’s weight and the position of his head restricted him from breathing and he suffocated,

according to the medical examiner’s office. Sgt. John Urquhart, spokesman for the King County Sheriff’s Office, said the boy, Daniel Gocus, and a friend were playing hideand-seek on Jan. 28 when Daniel went into a closet, closed the door and climbed into an approximately 40-inch-tall box that was

Conservation groups said the rules were a good start, but a lot of work remained to ensure the changes promised are delivered. Andy Stahl of Forest Service Employees for Environmental Ethics said getting rid of the indicatorspecies system would make it harder to sue the Forest Service to protect species struggling to survive, because the new rules shift the burden of proof from the Forest Service to the public. Kristen Boyles, an attorney for Earthjustice, said the watershed protections rated only a C grade. While the changes showed the Forest Service grasped the need to protect trees and brush along streams — a frequent issue in lawsuits over logging and grazing — the revisions did not include specific standards, Boyles said. The proposed rules incorporate public comments from more than 40 roundtables drawing more than 3,000 participants, and a blog. After a 90-day publiccomment period, the rules could become final by the end of the year.

WASHINGTON — A type of corn that is genetically engineered to make it easier to convert into ethanol was approved for commercial growing by the Department of Agriculture. The decision, announced Friday, came in the face of objections from corn millers and others in the food industry, who warned that if the industrial corn crosspollinated with or were mixed with corn used for food, it could lead to crumbly corn chips, soggy cereal, loaves of bread with soupy centers and corn dogs with inadequate coatings. “If this corn is comingled with other corn, it will have significant adverse impacts on food product quality and performance,” the North American Millers’ Association said in a statement. The corn, developed by Syngenta, contains a microbial gene that causes it to produce an enzyme that breaks down corn starch into sugar, the first step toward making ethanol. Ethanol manufacturers now buy this enzyme, called alpha amylase, in liquid form and add it to the corn at the start of their production process. Syngenta says that having the crop make the enzyme for its own breakdown — self-processing corn, as it were — will increase ethanol output while reducing the use of water, energy and chemicals in the production process. The company, a seed and pesticide manufacturer based in Switzerland, said

it would take various measures to prevent the corn from getting into the food supply. The corn, which is called Enogen, is one of the first crops genetically engineered to contain a trait that influences use of the plant after harvest. Virtually all past biotech crops have had traits like insect resistance, aimed at helping farmers more than manufacturers or consumers. Enogen is also one of the first to be engineered solely for industrial purposes. The Agriculture Department said the corn met the statutory requirements for approval, in that it was not a pest that would harm plants. email: (360) 565-2372

The Last Word in Astrology BY EUGENIA LAST

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t let love lead you astray. What you want must be fought for, not given away because of the demands someone is putting on you. If you aren’t happy with your decisions, you will blame whoever influenced you differently. 4 stars TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Now is the time to concentrate on yourself and the ones you love, not offer every last ounce of what you have to someone or something that will not benefit you personally. Unless you are being paid handsomely, take a pass. 3 stars GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You have what it takes to win, advance and take over if you are astute and willing to put what you have to offer on display. You can build a bright future by developing your ideas and plans. Take action. 3 stars CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take a course or attend a tradeshow. A better future is up to you, so take action now by picking up a new skill or updating your knowledge to suit the changing economy. You have to remain competitive. 3 stars

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You need to put as many irons in the fire as possible in order to leave yourself multiple options and an inside connection. Spread yourself around and discuss what you have in mind. Good fortune is heading your way. 4 stars

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): You’ll be looking for a new place to spend time relaxing. The adventure you pursue will enlighten you and encourage you to start something new. Love is in the picture; show your emotions if you want it to last. 3 stars

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t let your emotions or someone trying to manipulate you hold you back. Put your plan on paper, paying special attention to detail. Someone with greater vision may want to team up with you. This can be a winning combination. 2 stars

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): The past will be important to remember. What you have experienced or learned will play a major role in what you do next. There is money to be made but a move may be required to take advantage. 3 stars

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Get everything in position and don’t look back. Now is not the time to procrastinate or give in to laziness. The more time you take to network, present and discuss potential possibilities, the better you will do. 5 stars SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You stand to get ahead financially in an unusual or unexpected way. Home, property and other valuable possessions will increase your ability to turn something you want to do into a feasible endeavor. Listen to someone you trust. 3 stars

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): A little will go a long way, so don’t overdo it or you will miss an opportunity. There is room for improvement and a chance to make it happen. Nothing is out of reach if you are willing to go the distance. 5 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t confuse being unpredictable with muchneeded and strategically planned change. You have to fight hard to win the confidence of others and stability is one of the only ways you can make that happen. Strict rules, discipline and hard work are required. 2 stars

Mars vs.

Venus John Gray want to create a stable and loving environment for them. Since you’re both currently in counseling, you and your wife were obviously motivated to work through the issues that might be interfering with the love you once felt for each other. There is still a

chance that love can be rekindled, but it takes time and effort. If you aren’t feeling any sense of hope after two months, consider changing therapists before you separate. Just like other professionals, it’s not a matter of their ability — often, it’s just a case of whether one or both of you make a connection with the therapist. For counseling to really have a chance, both of you need to make that connection. Your relationship and your children deserve every effort you can make.

Peninsula women add new tastes to festival

By Diane Urbani de la Paz for

Peninsula Woman

It’s a powerful triumvirate: red wine, chocolate and women. And every year at this time, the three come together to celebrate Valentine’s Day and the various kinds of love: love of friends, of good food and drink, of life here on the Olympic Peninsula. This weekend and next, eight local wineries — many with women at the helm — are taking the traditional pairing of red wine and chocolate to new heights, said Vicki Corson, president of the Olympic Peninsula Wineries Association and co-owner of Camaraderie Cellars. “We decided to shake things up a bit this year with some new combinations that our guests may not have experienced, or even thought about, and we believe they will be pleasantly surprised,” Corson added. This year’s Red Wine & Chocolate Tour runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and next Saturday, Sunday and Monday, Feb. 21 — Presidents Day holiday — at cellars from outside Port Angeles to Port Townsend. Think about this: caramel and sea-salt-drizzled chocolate cake, coupled with a new red blend. That’s one of the offerings from Harbinger Winery,

2358 U.S. Highway 101 west of Port Angeles, where winemaker Sara Gagnon is serving her 2008 Bolero, a Tempranillo-Grenache blend, and the locally grown Raspberry Bliss. A Harbinger Reserve-andTheo chocolates “aphrodisiac pairing” will go on behind the VIP room’s velvet curtain; for the nonimbibing and younger guests, there will be Mexican hot chocolate. But for some who come to Harbinger, the piece de resistance may turn out to be the chocolate-dipped potato chips with a Dynamo Red reduction sauce.

This was a little something Rivard, then the newly retired Sequim School District head cook, invented during the summer of 2001, so she and Charlton thought they would feature it during the Red Wine & Chocolate Tour of 2002. The sauce was a hit then, Charlton said, and it’s still beloved by winery visitors. And she and Rivard are still “sisters of

the vine, supporting and inspiring and together indulging — in chocolate.” During the wine tour through next weekend, the pair are pouring Olympic’s entire list of wines: whites to reds, varietals to blends, still to sparkling, for the first time in the event’s history. Also at Olympic Cellars, local chocolatiers Yvonne Yokota and Jim Queen will be matching their candy with the various wines; other local foods will be served, and in the afternoons, guitarists Jack Hughes of Ellensburg and Paul Chasman of Freshwater Bay will play. “Molly and I want to pull out all the stops in honor of our chocolate anniversary,” Charlton said.

Love from all angles

Peninsula W

Innkeeper writes to inspire others to share compassion By Diane Urbani for

de la

Peninsula Woman


PORT ANGELES — In her books, Bonnie Louise Kuchler shines a light on all kinds of love. This weekend, as it happens, she is surrounded by romantic revelers, thanks to her latest enterprise. Kuchler has lived lots of lives. She has a thirst for new endeavors, which she embarks on with steely energy and a set of core values. Kuchler, 52, and her husband Phillip are innkeepers at the Sea Cliff Gardens bed and breakfast, a waterfront estate filled right now with couples on Valentine’s Day getaways. So Kuchler cooks breakfast for the 10 guests in five suites, moderates the table conversations to make sure everyone has a peaceful stay and takes great satisfaction when her couples tell her their time here was bliss. Inspirational writer and innkeeper Bonnie Kuchler pauses near the front door and her husband own.

And in Sea Cliff Gardens’ light-filled front room, guests can thumb through a sampling of Kuchler’s books: Just Girlfriends, Flowers for Mom, Just Sweethearts, and her most popular, Just Sisters: You Mess with Her, You Mess with Me. They will discover that Kuchler, whose 17th and 18th books will be published this fall, is a kind of gift-book matchmaker. By combing through other books of quotations and photo sites — and sprinkling in her own thoughts — she binds together the funny and the inspirational, and strives to stay away from the sticky-sweet. “My publisher does not want syrup,” Kuchler says. And this reporter finds her books not cloying, but refreshing.

A sample from inside Just Girlfriends, a celebration of women’s friendships: “A friend tells you she saw your old boyfriend — and he’s a priest.” “The friend who holds your hand and says the wrong thing is made of dearer stuff than the one who stays away.” “So long as you can sweeten another’s pain, life is not in vain.” Those come from Erma Bombeck, Barbara Kingsolver and Helen Keller, respectively. Then there are Kuchler’s own musings. “Revealing an embarrassing moment to a girlfriend — and then laughing about it with her — is like removing the stinger from a stalker bee.”

— are taught in all of the holy books, whichever continent you find yourself on, says Kuchler. And so she persuaded an agent to make her the editor of a far more complicated book. One Heart: Universal Wisdom from the World’s Scriptures, is a paperback compendium of quotations and essays illustrating what the world’s people of faith share in common. Common values important In her editor’s note, Kuchler “In this upcoming generation, writes of how she learned spirithere are a lot of atheists; a lot of tual values in church.

“Girlfriends share two ageless elixirs. We laugh until we cry. We cry until we laugh. Either one heals us from the inside out.” Healing was on Kuchler’s mind after Sept. 11, 2001, when it seemed to her that when it came to religion, Americans were fixated on extremism and differences.

The man had “seen that I needed help,” Harvey writes, “and sacrificed to give, without claiming any recognition for himself. “His perfect act has perfumed my whole life.” Kuchler, for her part, hopes One Heart promotes in its readers both the tolerance of differences and an understanding of the commonalities among faiths. “It was a peacemaking effort,” she says. Kuchler’s next two books promise still more inspirational ideas, paired with images. Hope Is the Thing with Feathers is a collection of quotations meant to impart hope to those who are running short of it; the title comes from an Emily Dickinson poem. That book is coming out this fall, along with a sequel to her Just Sisters book, which was by far her best-selling title with more than 85,000 copies sold, compared with 35,000 or so for others such as Just Girlfriends. Just Moms, Kuchler’s first book, sprang from a more modest idea. A dozen years ago Kuchler owned a calendar shop in a mall near her home on Oahu, Hawaii. One slow night, she was looking through her stock and thinking there ought to be a calendar of photos showing animal mothers and babies.

“In this upcoming generation, there are a lot of atheists; a lot of agnostics. But the common values are really important to teach kids — and they don’t have to be learned in Sunday school.”

So, a little over two years ago, she and Phillip decided they wanted to try running a bed and breakfast, preferably near mountains and water and a national park. Kuchler was ready to leave Hawaii. She had lived there most of her adult life, and for her, it’s a beautiful place to visit, but too much of the same thing after she’d spent decades there.

Winter, except for Valentine’s Day, is the slow time for an innkeeper, so Kuchler settles down to write. In addition to her books, she also pens greeting-card messages, something she says pays better per word than anything else.

Family time This is also a good time for family visits, so last month, Kuchler’s children came to Sea Cliff Gardens. She and Phillip have four between them: Nate and Jill were hers from her first marriage, and Vanessa and Laura his. All were teenagers when their parents got married; now Kuchler smiles as she reports they have all completed college and are doing well. The writer-innkeeper, too, is flourishing in her chosen environment. “I love the misty woods,” she says. “Last week, my daughter and I went to Marymere Falls,” near Lake Crescent in Olympic National Park. “I was just giddy.” “My heart was always in the Northwest. When I’m here, I’m home.”

She remembered a little bit of time in Oregon, back when she was 3 and 4 years old, and her parents, both professional photographers, took the family camping. That was “just enough to plant a Diane Urbani de la Paz (2)/for Peninsula Woman seed,” Kuchler remembers.

Elena Feminism is usually cited as the culprit for men falling behind. The implication is that women pursuing their dreams, acting independently and breaking out of restrictive gender roles has been devastating to men. No one seems to blame the ones who are truly responsible for this trend — absentee fathers. If a boy grows up without a good male role model, how can he learn to be a mature and responsible man? It’s a man’s choice whether or not to be involved in his son’s life. The lack of a father hurts girls, too. The reason so many women get involved with men who treat them like dirt is because they never got the affection they needed from their fathers and are desperately seeking it. As far as the unemployment rate goes, traditionally male jobs, such as manufacturing, have been hit hardest by the recession, while professions that tend to employ women, such as education and social work, are still hiring. My husband, who has worked all his life, had problems finding a job for

two years. If it’s true that women are growing less tolerant of the “dependent but bossy” attitude of certain men, that’s a good thing. Maybe it will be the motivation they need to move into adulthood. A man can only become a man through his own efforts. No one else can do it for him.

Angie Men don’t contribute much to relationships, and women no longer need them to be the breadwinners. Then, they blame feminism for their failure to evolve. They need to stop whining like a bunch of sissies and be the man a woman would want to be with. They’re hard to find in this new world because men refuse to adapt.

Bethany Wow, shame on those single mothers for having all those kids without men. Oh, wait. There were men involved! While some women do have babies through sperm banks, most of them are conceived the old-fashioned way. Most of the single mothers I know were deserted by the babyfathers. They didn’t run them off or tell them they weren’t needed.

and you got it: Boys are expected to behave exactly like girls and end up being worthless to either gender.

Cameron Hank must not have played soccer. A friend who works for an orthopedic surgeon told me that they see more injuries in soccer than in football. Those games can get rough.

UK study on overfed babies contains questionable results WITH THE LATEST news about the potential everlasting obesity of overfed babies, many of my friends are concerned with how much and when to feed their 6- to 12-monthold. This is simply crazy to me, and I’d like to know if drastic changes need to be implemented right away for our young, as well as older, children’s diets, or if this is just another off-thewall scare tactic to make parents feel guilty. We have twin toddlers who were fed enriched formula through the age of 10 months old. Both are of average height and weight and have had no problems with rapid weight gain nor do they require additional in-between snacks or meals than the everyday toddler. However, we do supervise their daily diets carefully. They eat natural and whole grain food, fruit and veggies and are not allowed much processed or fast food, especially sweets. They are quite active and do not watch more than two hours of TV each

approved such an unhealthy diet, many say that it’s cheaper, more filling, more convenient and can be eaten in the car on the way to a family member’s activity. The main key with babies is to listen to your child and focus on when they are really hungry and not just fussing about something else. If they are fed every time they cry, it will become a learned habit and it will be expected, regardless of what the child actually wants.
