Marijuana business growing Three prescription pot dispensaries operate on Peninsula By Tom Callis
Peninsula Daily News
SEQUIM — Providing marijuana to the medically ill continues to be a growing business on the North Olympic Peninsula. The Peninsula is home to three known medical marijuana dispensaries, all of which have opened over the past four months. The most recent to come to light is Olympic Sinsemilla, a Sequim-area nonprofit run by Justin and Bethany Rondeau. The Rondeaus started delivering marijuana to customers in December. They said they now serve about 100 people living from Forks to Port Townsend. Most of their clients have cancer, said Justin Rondeau, a Forks native. The average age of the Rondeaus’ customers is 54. Justin Rondeau said marijuana, which he and Bethany prefer to call cannabis, helps ease pain and restore appetites for their customers without the harsh side effects that can come with manufactured drugs.

Nancy and Steve “Bear” Bishop have changed the name of their Wildfire Cider business to Alpenfire Cider because of a legal challenge to their use of the name “Wildfire.”
Two Peninsula businesses change names By Tom Callis
Peninsula Daily News
Two North Olympic Peninsula businesses have changed their names after a Chicago-based restaurant chain threatened to sue over copyright infringement. The Wildfire Grill at 929 W. Eighth St. in Port Angeles is now LD’s Woodfire Grill, though the sign may remain the same for a while. And Wildfire Cider of 220 Pocket Lane in Port Townsend is now officially Alpenfire Cider. The owners of both businesses said they are perplexed as to why they were told by Wildfire Restaurants — a steak and seafood restaurant chain with locations in Illinois, Minnesota, Georgia and Virginia, but none in Washington — to change their names or face litigation. But they each decided it was far less expensive to change their names than to face hefty court expenses. “It was very frustrating,” said Nancy Bishop, who owns the cidery with her husband, Steve.

their home a week before Christmas. Perry saw the story on a local televiPerry sion newscast and decided to rebuild the house. He also fully furnished it. More than 20 family members attended ceremony in rural Coweta County on Friday. Perry said he wanted to do something for Ransby when he found out the family didn’t have any way to rebuild. He said the main thing was getting her enough space for the children and for them to have room to play.
Passings By The Associated Press
SIDNEY LUMET, 86, a director whose body of work numbered more American classics than most have a right to contemplate, died early Saturday in his Manhattan, N.Y., home after suffering from lymphoma. An eminent craftsman, Mr. Lumet always referred to his more than 40 films as Mr. Lumet simple, in 2008 understated “work.” He rarely did more than two or three takes and usually cut “in the camera” — essentially editing while shooting — yet his efficient ways captured some of the greatest performances in American cinema: Al Pacino as Sonny Wortzik in “Dog Day Afternoon,” Peter Finch as Howard Beale in “Network,” Paul Newman as Frank Galvin in “The Verdict.” His actors, with whom he always rehearsed for at least two weeks before starting production, won 17 Oscars for their performances in his films. The director was, in four nominations, always shut out until he was given a lifetime achievement award in 2005.
New York City was frequently a character in its own right in his films, from the crowds chanting “Attica!” on the hot city streets of “Dog Day Afternoon” to the hard lives and corruptibility of New York police officers in “Serpico,” “Prince of the City” and “Q&A.” Mr. Lumet also was a deeply moral filmmaker, who often made films crackling with social justice. His first feature film, 1957’s “12 Angry Men,” used the plodding reason of Juror No. 8, played by Henry Fonda, to overturn the prejudices and assumptions of his follow jurors. His 1964 film “The Pawnbroker” was one of the early U.S. dramas about the Holocaust. His “Fail-Safe,” also from 1964, was a frightening warning on nuclear bombs.

Mr. Lumet remained very active into his 80s, saying he wasn’t geared for retirement and couldn’t imagine giving up the life of making movies. Mr. Lumet once claimed he didn’t seek out New York-based projects. “But any script that starts in New York has got a head start,” he said in 1999. “It’s a fact the city can become anything you want it to be.”

Briefly: Nation Jurors: Doctors failed to report dangerous peer PHILADELPHIA — Women went to Dr. Kermit Gosnell to end their pregnancies. Many came away with life-threatening infections and punctured organs; some still had fetal parts inside them when they arrived at nearby hos- Gosnell pitals in dire need of emergency care. Doctors at the University of Pennsylvania Health System, which operates two hospitals within a mile of Gosnell’s squalid abortion clinic in West Philadelphia, saw at least six of these patients — two of whom died. But they largely failed in their legal and ethical duties to report their peer’s incompetence, according to a grand jury report. “We are very troubled that almost all of the doctors who treated these women routinely failed to report a fellow physician who was so obviously endangering his patients,” wrote the Philadelphia grand jurors, who recommended a slew of charges against Gosnell and his staff in January. The health system — in apparent contradiction of the grand jury report — released a statement saying that it had “provided reports to the authorities regarding patients of Dr. Gosnell who sought additional care at our hospitals” starting in 1999.
But the system’s attorneys could only produce a single report for the grand jury.
SANAA, Yemen — Government forces shot bullets and tear gas at demonstrators in Yemen’s capital and another city Saturday as longtime President Ali Abdullah Saleh resisted a diplomatic push for the resignation that hundreds of thousands of his own people were demanding in the streets. In Sanaa, the capital, security men in plainclothes shot, beat and threw rocks at demonstrators at a downtown square where Saleh tens of thousands of people called for Saleh to step down, said Dr. Wasim alQurshi, who was treating the injured at a makeshift first-aid station. He said 11 people were shot, including one man shot in the head, and that dozens of others were injured as they choked on tear gas or were crushed by other fleeing demonstrators. In the southern city of Taiz, presidential guard units controlled by Saleh’s eldest son clashed with protesters, firing bullets and spraying plumes of tear gas into crowds of tens of thousands marching next to an elementary school, activist Nouh al-Wafi said. The soldiers also clashed with other demonstrators in other parts of the city. Some three people were seri-

Men march for women ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A few dozen men seeking to raise awareness for sexual assault violence against women tried to walk a mile in their shoes Friday — literally. Among the participants — some burly and others bearded — in the fourth annual “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” event at the University of Alaska Anchorage was the head of Alaska State Troopers, Col. Keith Mallard, who slipped out of one of his red suede peep-toe shoes during the walk. “I had a blowout,” Mallard said sheepishly. “It didn’t hinder my progress any. I just had to pull to the side and get a tire change.” The men teetered precariously along the mile-long route, trying to raise money for a local nonprofit that supports sexual assault victims. Donations to Standing Together Against Rape will go toward banishing sexual assaults and other acts of violence against women.

Funeral under fire BEIRUT — Syrian security forces fired on mourners at a funeral for slain protesters Saturday as authorities vowed to crush any new unrest from a three-week uprising that showed no sign of letting up even as the death toll topped 170. Activists vowed to accelerate their movement with daily protests nationwide, bringing new pressure on President Bashar Assad’s authoritarian regime. Assad has answered the tens of thousands of protesters with both force and limited concessions that have failed to appease an emboldened movement inspired by the Arab uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt.

In a sign the confrontation could escalate, the military warned Saturday that it will clear Tahrir Square of protesters “with all force and decisiveness” for life to get back to normal.

A wounded prisoner from President Moammar Gadhafi’s forces is transported in the back of a pickup truck by rebels to take him to a hospital for treatment halfway between Brega and Ajdabiya, Libya, on Saturday.
Rebels face military surge on key outpost NATO strikes target Gadhafi’s ammunition stockpiles, tanks By Sebastian Abbot The Associated Press
AJDABIYA, Libya — Government soldiers and rebel gunmen battled in the streets of a key front-line city Saturday after the Libyan military used shelling and guerrilla-style tactics to open its most serious push into opposition territory since international airstrikes began. NATO airstrikes, meanwhile, hammered at Gadhafi’s ammunition stockpiles and armored forces, destroying 17 tanks. At least eight people were killed in the fighting over Ajdabiya, a hospital official said. Recapturing the city would give the Libyan military a staging ground to attack the rebels’ main
stronghold, Benghazi, about 100 miles farther east along the coastal highway. Moammar Gadhafi’s forces were approaching Benghazi when they were driven back by the international air campaign launched last month to protect civilians and ground Gadhafi’s aircraft.
Key city for rebels For the rebels, losing the city would effectively bottle them into a coastal strip of eastern Libya and allow government forces to more tightly squeeze the few opposition pockets in the rest of the country, including the besieged western port of Misrata, where heavy clashes continued Saturday for a second day.
NATO airstrikes hit armored vehicles firing on civilians near both Misrata and Ajdabiya, said Canadian Lt. Gen. Charles Bouchard, who commands the Libya operation. Speaking in Naples, Italy, where the alliance’s operational center is located, Bouchard said Saturday that NATO jets also had struck ammunition stockpiles east of Tripoli that were being used to resupply forces involved in the shelling of Misrata and other population centers. A NATO official who spoke on condition of anonymity because of regulations said warplanes had destroyed 17 tanks and damaged nine more. The official also said NATO jets enforcing the no-fly zone over Libya intercepted a rebel MiG-23 fighter that had taken off from Benghazi and forced it back to the airport. No shots were fired, the official said.
End to Japan’s nuclear crisis several years, fortune away By Charles Hutzler and Mari Yamaguchi The Associated Press
TOKYO — Once Japan’s leaky nuclear complex stops spewing radiation and its reactors cool down, making the site safe and removing the ruined equipment is going to be a messy ordeal that could take decades and cost hundreds of millions of dollars. Radiation has covered the area around the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant and blanketed parts of the complex, making the job of “decommissioning” the plant — rendering it safe so it doesn’t threaten public health and the environment — a bigger task than usual. Toshiba Corp., which supplied four of Fukushima’s six reactors, including two on which General Electric Co. collaborated, submit-
ted a roadmap this past week to the plant’s operator for decommissioning the crippled reactors. The study, done with three other companies, projects that it would take about 10 years to remove the fuel rods and the reactors and contain other radioactivity at the site, said Keisuke Omori of Toshiba.
Fast time line That time line is far faster than those for other nuclear accidents and contains a big caveat: The reactors must first be stabilized and cooled, goals that have eluded emergency teams struggling with cascading problems in the month since the devastating tsunami damaged their cooling systems. Omori said the extent of damage to the reactors and other problems still need to be assessed.
“Of course, decommissioning the four reactors would be more challenging than retiring one from an ordinary operation. “We still have a lot to examine,” Omori said. He declined to provide details on the costs and the time frame, citing business confidentiality. Getting a quick resolution to the Fukushima crisis would give a boost to a nation trying to recover from the severe disasters and to the tens of thousands forced to evacuate communities near the plant and already wearying of living in shelters with no prospects of returning home. “It could take decades,” said 36-year-old Hitomi Motouchi, who left a home on the fringe of the evacuation zone and is living in a gymnasium in Fukushima city. “We will all have to move away.”

POLICE WERE HUNTING a suspect Saturday in a blast outside a California synagogue and community center that was initially believed to be an industrial accident. Area Jewish organizations were urged to be extra vigilant. Ron Hirsch, 60, a transient, was linked to items found in and around a hunk of concrete and large pipe that flew some 25 feet into the air after Thursday’s explosion at Chabad House Lubavitch, Santa Monica Police Sgt.

A FEDERAL JUDGE has denied a proposed settlement agreement between the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and 10 conservation groups that would have lifted endangered species protections for wolves in Montana and Idaho. U.S. District Judge Donald Molloy in Missoula, Mont., on Saturday rejected the agreement that could have led to public hunting of some 1,300 wolves in the two states. In the 24-page decision, Molloy cited the court’s lack of authority to put part of an endangered species population under state management and expose that population to hunting.

Forum focuses on housing By Charlie Bermant Peninsula Daily News
PORT TOWNSEND — A potential affordable housing project was discussed during a housing forum that drew 100 people last week. Panel members talked about developing more affordable housing in East Jefferson County at the Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall on Thursday night. Panel member Judy Surber, a Port Townsend city planner, mentioned that three small city-owned plots that are expected to be declared surplus could be used to build affordable housing. Homeward Bound’s David Rymph, for his part, said money is available to build affordable housing if adequate locations can be found. “The city can provide the land, Homeward Bound can get us the materials, and Habitat can provide the volunteer labor,” said Jamie Maciejewski, director of Habitat for Humanity of East Jefferson County. “So we have everything we need right here to build some new affordable units,” she added.
Need for partnerships Each panelist discussed goals toward creating more affordable housing, and all stressed the need for a variety of agencies to work together and pool resources. Some partnerships are already in place, while others — such as the surplusland possibility — were developed on the spot. The Port Townsend City Council is expected to consider declaring the parcels surplus at its meeting Monday, April 18, at City Hall, 540 Water St. The meeting will start at 6:30 p.m. One parcel is near the corner of Discovery Road and Holcomb Street,
another is near Grace Lutheran Church, and a third is at the corner of Beech and P streets. One of the lots is only 6,000 square feet. “We would like to develop these parcels with affordable parcels if it pencils out,” Maciejewski said. “But a lot of people in town seem uncomfortable with increased density in some of these areas.”

Commissioners to mull hiring trail design work Peninsula Daily News
Not affordable Jefferson County has the fourth least-affordable housing in the state for rentals and bounces between second and third least-affordable for purchase, Maciejewski has said. As real estate prices fall, so do opportunities for jobs paying a living wage, said Jefferson County Department of Community Development Director Al Scalf, a panel member. “The affordability gap between home cost and household income continues to widen,” he said. All panelists agreed that the way to ease the problem is through the cooperation of all agencies concerned in the planning and building of affordable dwelling units. “Everyone in this town knows each other on a firstname basis, so we should be able to make this happen,” said Port Townsend City Councilwoman Kris Nelson, another member of the panel. Said Peninsula Housing Authority Director Pam Tietz of cooperative projects: “It doesn’t matter who owns what; it only matters whether it gets done.” Paul Purcell of the Beacon Development Group also served on the panel.

The three Jefferson County commissioners will consider hiring a consultant to design the first phase of the Rick Tollefson Memorial Trail project when they meet Monday. The meeting will begin at 9 a.m. in the commissioners’ meeting room at the Jefferson County Courthouse, 1820 Jefferson St., Port Townsend. The design contract with Nakano Associates LLC of Seattle would be $19,230. Funding will be provided by the Federal Highway Administration and the state Pedestrian & Bicycle Safety program. The first phase of the trail project is included in the 2011-2016 Six-Year Transportation Improvement Program. It will create a new multiuse nonmotorized trail crossing Chimacum Valley between HJ Carroll Park and the Bob Bates Ball Fields. Commissioners also will consider: ■ Issuing a call for bids for Price Street improvement. Bids would be accepted until 9:30 a.m. Monday, May 2. ■ A grant of $12,455 in lodging tax funds to the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce. ■ A sale agreement with Albina Asphalt to pay $302,675 for 2011 supply of liquid asphalt products for the bituminous surface treatment program. ■ A waterline easement request from the Port Townsend Public Works Department for a waterline extension across the Larry Scott Memorial Trail and along a portion of adjacent county-owned property in the Ash Loop neighborhood. ■ Authorizing acquisi-

PT City Council The Port Townsend City Council will consider hiring a consultant to submit a plan for the extension of Howard Street to Discovery Road during a special meeting Monday. The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. in council chambers at City Hall, 540 Water St. The connection between Sims Way and Discovery Road will provide new traffic options for the city and open up a new area for commercial development, city officials have said. The city is expected to put a ceiling of $675,000 for the design in the engineering phase of the project. At 7:30 p.m., the council will convene a workshop to hear recommendations from the Joint Oversight Board with regard to a change of governance in the providing of fire service. No action is planned.

New rules keep boats farther away from orcas By Leah Leach
Peninsula Daily News
Whale-watchers and other boaters will have to stay twice as far away from orcas in the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Puget Sound once a federal rule comes into effect, expected in early May. The final rule released by NOAA Fisheries on Friday doubles the current approach distance of 100 yards approved by the state Legislature in March 2008 to protect the animals from environmental disturbances. “I think [the new regulations] are great,” said Pete Hanke, owner of Puget Sound Express of Port Townsend, the only commercial whale-watching operation on the North Olympic Peninsula. “This is our 26th year doing whale-watching, and I don’t see a problem” with giving orcas more space, Hanke said. The rule will apply to everything from yachts and whale-watching tours to kayaks and sailboats. It exempts commercial fishing and tribal boats actively involved in fishing, as well as container ships and tankers traveling in established shipping lanes and vessels with scientific research permits to study orcas. The final rule from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration also forbids boats and ships from parking in an orca’s path, limiting that distance to 400 yards.
Experience the same The regulations won’t change the experience of watching orcas on his boats, Hanke said, since he is keeping the specified distances from the animals. “But I’m a big-boat operator,” he said. “I don’t know what it’s like for a small boat.” Hanke said he was glad to see NOAA drop its original proposal of setting a half-mile “no-go” zone prohibiting vessels along the west side of the San Juan Islands from May 1 through Sept. 30 — not because he travels that closely to the island but because he doubted it could be enforced. Public comments about the measure, proposed in
“This is our 26th year doing whale-watching, and I don’t see a problem” with giving orcas more space.
Pete Hanke owner, Puget Sound Express of Port Townsend
2009, expressed concerns about the economic impacts of such a closure to commercial and recreational fishing, elimination of kayaking opportunities and safety. Instead of including the measure in the present rule, NOAA Fisheries will instead continue to gather information to consider it in future rulemaking. The rule will go into effect 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. The date of publication is not known, NOAA said on its website, www.nwr.noaa. gov.
Threats to orcas The rule is intended to protect orcas from one of three recognized threats to their existence, NOAA said. Major threats facing the population are disturbance from vessels — especially noise — a shortage of its preferred prey of Chinook salmon and water pollution, scientists have said. The agency’s killer whale recovery plan, released in early 2008, calls for actions to reduce disturbance from vessels. Underwater noise from boats can affect orcas, which depend on natural sonar to navigate and find food, and even nonmotorized boats that approach too close or block their paths can disturb the animals, NOAA said. While agreeing with limits on boats, Hanke also urged action to clean up the waters orcas live in. “Pushing boats away from the whales won’t improve their habitat in terms of the pollution issue,” he said. “And that’s what’s really going to affect these animals down the road.” For more information on the rule, visit http:// tinyurl.com/3mdnnyd.

2 of three men charged in Sequim chase, crash By Jeff Chew
Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — The Clallam County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office has filed charges against two of three men involved in a wild car chase through Sequim on Wednesday that police said followed a drug deal gone bad. The man allegedly leading the chase, Christopher Lee Haltom, was not charged Friday. “I don’t have probable cause showing,” Deputy Prosecuting Attorney John Troberg said. “There are no charges at this point.” Jeremy J. Paapke, 20, of Port Angeles was charged in Superior Court on Friday on investigation of seconddegree assault, first-degree robbery, reckless driving and hit-and-run with property damage. James E. Charles, 28, of Port Angeles was charged on investigation of first________ degree robbery and seconddegree assault. Managing Editor/News Leah Charges were not filed Leach can be reached at 360-4173531 or leah.leach@peninsula against Haltom, 29, who police said fled by car while dailynews.com.
Paapke, the driver, and Charles chased Haltom’s car at speeds of up to 80 mph through busy city streets and county roads shortly before schools let out at 3 p.m. The chase ended when the two cars collided in the Paradise Restaurant parking lot at the corner of Hendrickson Road and North Sequim Avenue, just north of the Sequim school grounds. Troberg said the city of Sequim could still consider charging Haltom with reckless driving in municipal court. Troberg said his office was awaiting additional witness reports from the Sequim Police Department, which received a number of calls the day of the chase, at least one from a pedestrian claiming she was almost hit by one of the speeding cars.
Police report Sequim police originally reported that the men were attempting to buy methadone. Paapke and Charles
gave Haltom about $400 cash to purchase the drug, police said. Haltom took the money, got into his vehicle and fled, and Paapke and Charles pursued him, police said. The chase ran along U.S. Highway 101 into Sequim, along several city streets and on surrounding Clallam County roads before Haltom’s car was hit by Paapke’s and pushed up onto a landscaped median, where it came to rest, police said. At that point, a physical altercation took place between Haltom and Charles, police said. Charles later told police he got his money back from Haltom. When officers arrived, Haltom was fleeing from the scene. They chased him on foot and found him in a shed not far from the site of the Hendrickson Road collision, where he was taken into custody. Officer Maris Turner, Sequim police spokeswoman, said there was no methadone recovered in the incident.
Witness reports of the chase began to stream into the Police Department beginning at about 2:54 p.m. Tuesday. Police arrested Haltom on investigation of hit-andrun driving involving property damage, reckless driving, third-degree theft, possession of marijuana at 40 grams or less and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. Police arrested Paapke on investigation of seconddegree robbery, seconddegree assault and reckless driving, and Charles on investigation of seconddegree robbery and seconddegree assault. All three remained in the Clallam County jail Saturday. Paapke’s bond is $75,000 bond. Charles was originally held on $50,000 bond, which was reduced to $10,000. Haltom’s bail was set at $25,000.

Clallam expects 20 millionth bus rider this week Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Clallam Transit will present a basket of goodies and passes for free rides for a year to its 20 millionth fixed-route rider next week. The count is getting close, said Clint Wetzel, operations manager for the countywide public bus service that transports an average of 3,100 people daily, on Friday. “It’s either going to be late Monday afternoon or early Tuesday morning” that the 20 millionth rider will get on a bus, Wetzel said. Wetzel updates ridership throughout each day as bus drivers bring in their count sheets. Even so, the rider tapped as the 20th millionth will be a “guesstimate,” though a close one, he admitted.
Prize for passenger That rider, who will get on a bus at The Gateway transit center at Front and Lincoln streets in Port Angeles, will be given a year’s worth of passes and ride free for a year anywhere in the system. A monthly premium pass for all routes costs $36. So the yearlong pass is worth $432. General Manager Terry Weed and some of the Transit board members will be on-hand as the rider also receives a basket of items businesses have donated, Wetzel said.
The system carried its 5 millionth rider in 1990. Its 10 millionth passenger boarded a bus May 1, 1998, and its 15th million passenger boarded Nov. 10, 2005. The bus service began providing service in October 1980. Then, it had only one route, which was between Port Angeles and Sequim, employed 13 people and carried a little more than 700 riders per day.
15 routes The bus service — which celebrated its 30th anniversary Oct. 13 — now operates 15 routes throughout the county from Diamond Point and Sequim Bay in the east to LaPush and Neah Bay in the west. Clallam Transit now has 68 full- and part-time fixedroute employees and carries about 920,000 passengers annually. Rides cost $1 for adults and 50 cents for youths, disabled people and seniors. Route changes affecting Port Angeles, Sequim and Forks went into effect Monday. Clallam Transit, faced with a $400,000 budget deficit, cut several low-ridership bus trips to save costs. For more information, visit www.clallamtransit. com or phone 360-452-1315 or 800-858-3747 Clallam Transit offices are at 830 W. Lauridesen Blvd., Port Angeles.

Properties could be designated for affordable housing Peninsula Daily News
PORT TOWNSEND — Three city-owned properties that could be designated to help meet affordable housing needs will be the subject of a public hearing at the Port Townsend City Council chambers, 250 Madison St., at 6:30 p.m.
Monday, April 18. The city of Port Townsend has been identifying properties it owns that may be designated to help meet this need. The three parcels are generally located at the following intersections: Discovery Road and Holcomb Street, Cherry Street near
A Street, and Beech and P streets. At the hearing, the City Council will determine whether each property: is surplus to the city’s needs; should be designated for affordable housing and be either surplused or retained for that purpose; should be
retained for another public purpose; or should be surplused without making provision for affordable housing. Anyone may speak or provide written comment. For more information, phone Judy Surber, planning manager, at 360-3795084.
attorney, John Henry Browne, has freely discussed Harris-Moore’s intent to accept responsibility if a deal resolving state and federal charges in about 17 jurisdictions can be reached. Browne declined to discuss Friday how much prison time he expects his client to receive under any deal, but he previously said Harris-Moore is looking at anywhere from four to 12 years if convicted. A deal could also involve Harris-Moore donating any movie- or book-deal profits to repaying victims, Browne said.
He was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where he was listed in stable condition Saturday, the nursing supervisor said. The State Patrol said Brown’s 1990 Ford F150 pickup hit the front left of the 2003 Ford Excursion driven by Roxanna M. White-Ruttann, 44, of Chimacum. She was not injured. A passenger in Brown’s car, Travis B. Sharpe, 20, of Port Ludlow, also was not hurt, the State Patrol said. The State Patrol said Brown caused the wreck through inattention and negligent driving and planned to cite him for negligent driving in the second degree.

Lines to shift for Clallam districts By Leah Leach
of County Commissioners.
Peninsula Daily News
Boundaries will shift for all three commissioner districts in Clallam County, effective in 2012, and the lines are likely to be redrawn somewhere between McDonald Creek in the east and Dry Creek in the west. That information will be presented, with more detail, during this week’s first public forum on realignment of Districts Nos. 1, 2 and 3, said Don Corson, one of the districting masters responsible for recommending new boundaries for the county’s three districts based on Census 2010 data. “It won’t be the last time we have an opportunity to chat,” Corson, who is serving as No. 2 master with Gene Unger as lead master, said Friday. The five-member Clallam County Districting Commission will host the forum at 2:30 p.m. Thursday in the commissioners’ meeting room (Room 160) at the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles. Districting masters will present Census data, show growth in the county’s precincts, outline the process of realignment, display a map of present districts and seek public input, Corson said. Clallam County’s population increased by 6,879 people during the past 10 years, rising from 64,525 to 71,404.

1, Corson said. District No. 2 extends from Agnew into the east side of Port Angeles. District 3 covers the west side of Port Angeles and extends through the West End. Because of a “ripple effect” west from District No. 1, “there’s no doubt” that boundaries will shift for all three Clallam County districts, Corson said. “The county’s greatest population is in the greater Port Angeles area, so that’s where the lines probably will be changing,” Corson said. “Lines are likely to be redrawn between McDonald Creek and Dry Creek,” he added.

public as a first shot before any lines are drawn,” Corson said. The courthouse was chosen as the location for the forum because it is a central location for those most likely to be affected by shifting boundary lines, Corson said.
Hearings in June The districting commission will conduct a series of public hearings in June in each of the three districts after realignment proposals are completed. No hearings have been scheduled yet. The county charter requires the districting master to submit a draft proposal for the new districts to the commissioners by June 30. The changes would take effect in 2012. “It will have no effect on this year’s elections,”
The chairman of the commission is John Marrs, former chairman of the Clallam County Democratic Party and a retired college journalism instructor. He was appointed by the county Democratic Party. Eric Foth is the secretary. Foth, who is retired from a lumberyard and lives east of Port Angeles, was appointed by the Clallam County Republican Party Chairman Dick Pilling. He was a member of the campaign team for Jim McEntire in his failed bid for a 24th District seat in November, Pilling said. McEntire is a Port of Port Angeles commissioner. Commissioner Mike Chapman appointed Paul Martin for District No. 2. Chapman said Foth and Martin, a retiree, were the only applicants for District No. 2. He said Martin is a longtime community volunteer and had worked in Pennsylvania. Commissioner Steve Tharinger appointed Earl Archer, a state committeeman for the Clallam County Democratic Party, as District No. 1 representative. Archer, an attorney, is a retiree from California, Tharinger said. Commissioner Mike Doherty appointed Forks Mayor Bryon Monohon for District No. 3.
He chairs the county’s Permit Advisory Board and runs his own engineering firm. Corson, who holds a doctorate in urban geography from the University of Oregon, was vice president of planning and development for Merrill & Ring for 19 years, retiring in 2009. He has worked as a consultant in public planning, he said. Unger and Corson have been longtime partners in Camaraderie Cellars, where Corson is the winemaker. Corson started Camaraderie Cellars in 1992. Other partners in the business are his wife, Vicki, president of the North Sound Winery Association, and Unger’s wife, Mary Ann, who is an ________ assistant principal at Port Backgrounds Angeles High School.

Corson said. Clallam is one of six charter counties in the state and the only county using the home rule form of government on the North Olympic Peninsula. The county charter requires a reconsideration of district boundary lines every 10 years using federal Census information to ensure that all three county commissioners have similar population bases, within 5 percent of each other. District boundary lines run north-south. The districting commission hired Unger and Corson on March 22. The Clallam County commissioners have approved an $8,500 contract for the districting masters.
Clallam shoreline plan forums start Monday Peninsula Daily News
The first in a series of forums in Port Angeles, Sekiu, Joyce and Sequim on Clallam County’s Shoreline Master Program will be Monday. County-hired consultants with ESA Adolfson of Seattle will gather ideas from the public about how to update the Clallam County Shoreline Master Program, which was adopted in the mid-1970s. The state Department of Ecology requires all cities and 39 counties to update their shoreline master programs by 2014, and Clallam County officials hope to send a draft update of the shoreline plan to the county Planning Commission by April 2012. Monday’s forum will be in Port Angeles.
It is scheduled from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Port Angeles Senior Center, 328 E. Seventh St. A meeting of the Shoreline Advisory Committee will precede the forum. The advisory group will meet from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the emergency operations center in the basement of the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles. Forums in other communities will follow through Thursday. The schedule is: ■ Tuesday — 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Sekiu Community Center, 42 Rice St., Sekiu. ■ Wednesday — 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Crescent Community Grange, 50870 state Highway 112, Joyce.
■ Thursday — 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., John Wayne Marina, 2577 West Sequim Bay Road, Sequim Each forum will begin with presentations of maps and information during a half-hour open house. Members of the public will hear about the process of updating the shoreline master program and about present floodplain management along rivers and streams, marine shoreline erosion and human efforts to protect property and aquatic habitat.
Small work groups Then, participants can divide into small groups to develop strategies for managing river floodplains, protecting both private property and environmental resources
and ensuring public access to waterways. County staff and advisory committee members will use ideas from the forums to develop detailed strategies to be offered for public comment in the fall, according to the Clallam County Department of Community Development. Officials are seeking input on how best to manage river floodplains, protect private property, protect environmental resources and ensure public access. “The county has heard from a number of citizens that these issues are critical and that people want to get into the tough issues that need to be carefully addressed to successfully achieve both public and private interests,” the department said in a statement,
adding that people are encouraged to attend the forums as often as they can. The consulting firm, which is working under a $599,930 agreement with the county, will incorporate public input and technical data to draft new regulations for shoreline uses.
Controversy The state-required shoreline plan updates have proven to be controversial in other jurisdictions, such as in neighboring Jefferson County, which sent its update to the state in 2009 and early this year received conditional approval of its plan. Much of the controversy has been due to buffers on land to protect waterways. Concerns about such setbacks were voiced during a Clallam County commission-
ers meeting in February. The county received a $1 million grant from the Environmental Protection Agency last year to define and achieve “no net loss of ecological function” of shorelines and to apply some of the groundwork to other jurisdictions in the Puget Sound basin. Written comments can be sent by letter to Clallam County, DCD, 223 E. Fourth St., Suite 5, Port Angeles, WA 98362-3015; by email to SMP@co.clallam.wa.us; or by filling out a questionnaire at the forums.

SEQUIM — A man accused of owning two pit bull terriers that attacked and injured a Sequim woman and her chihuahua mix dog has been issued nine citations. Lisa Hopper, the city of Sequim’s code enforcement officer who handles animal control-related infractions, recently issued the citations to Philip Booth. Police said the pit bull terriers escaped their yard and attacked Sandra McMillon and her pet dog, Odie, near the intersection of Third Avenue and Maple Street on Jan. 25. McMillon lost the tip of her right index finger during the attack as she tried to fend them off and protect herself and her much smaller pet, a police spokeswoman said. Sequim Police Officer Maris Turner estimated the infractions could amount to more than $1,500 against Booth. The citations were two counts of biting an animal, one count of biting a human, two counts of failure to control the dogs, two counts of not having rabies immunizations and two counts of not having dog licenses. Craig Ritchie, city attorney, said the Clallam County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office gave the case to the city of Sequim after county attorneys reviewed
the case and did not file charges. “The prosecuting attorneys looked at it and felt they did not have the facts to prove beyond a reasonable doubt it was felony,” Ritchie said. Ritchie said the dogs’ owner would have had to have had dogs that were

State approves slew of transportation bills The Associated Press
OLYMPIA — The state Senate has approved several transportation bills, including one to allow the Department of Licensing to contract out driver’s exams to private driving schools and local school districts. The measure was originally proposed by Rep. Dave Upthegrove, D-Des Moines, in an effort to cut wait times at DOL offices, where the administration of licensing exams is staff’s most timeconsuming function. Supporters said that contracting out driver’s tests would free up staff to help other customers more quickly and therefore reflect more positively on state government. Driving schools would be able to set their own price for the licensing exams. Sen. Curtis King, R-Yakima, said this would engage the free marketplace and allow the schools to make it “worth their while” to administer the exams. The DOL would still issue driver’s licenses and would be authorized to randomly re-test drivers to hold the process accountable to department standards. Under a current pilot program, several driving schools are already administering the written portion of the driver’s test. Supporters said driving school staff are well-trained to give the driving portion, as well. “This is an important step forward in trying to create some efficiencies within our Department of Licensing,” Sen. Scott White, D-Seattle, said Saturday. The bill passed unanimously in the state Senate and returns to the state House for approval of amendments.
HOT lanes Another bill approved by the Senate directs the state Department of Transportation to begin construction of high-occupancy toll (HOT) lanes on Interstate 405 near Bellevue. The bill also establishes a study on HOT lanes to determine if they actually bring in the revenue expected by the department to continue paying for
Bill passed to improve worker safety in prisons The Associated Press
OLYMPIA — State Senate lawmakers unanimously approved a bill to improve worker safety in the state’s prisons. The bill now heads to the House for action there. The measure includes increased employee training and better video monitoring. The bill follows the murder of Corrections Officer Jayme Biendl, who was slain at the Monroe Correctional Complex in January. In response to her death, the governor and the state Department of Corrections requested a review from the National Institute of Corrections. The institute made 15 safety recommendations, several of which are addressed by the legislation. The Senate rejected an amendment to expand the collective bargaining rights of Corrections workers, but the bill requires inclusion of prison employees on a statewide safety committee and on local prison safety committees. I-405 construction. The HOT lanes would be developed on I-405 between Bellevue and Interstate 5 and aim both to generate revenue from tolls and thin out traffic by allowing drivers to choose to enter the faster-moving toll lanes. Opponents argued that HOT lanes on state Highway 167 don’t even bring in enough money to cover their own operating costs. “I think we should build the lanes, do the study but not create the expectation that HOT lanes are going to pay for the 405 project,” Sen. Doug Ericksen, R-Ferndale, said in opposition to the bill. But Senate Transportation committee Chairwoman Sen. Mary Margaret Haugen, D-Camano Island, said the bill comes with a provision to “turn off” HOT lanes if the study shows they aren’t working. Results from the study are due back in January. Currently, the construction on I-405 is paid for out of the Nickel funding package passed by the Legislature in 2003. But that money won’t be enough to finish the project, Haugen said, so lawmakers will have to look for another source. Haugen said they will be working with DOT to see if a public-private partnership could work to pay for continued construction, but in the meantime, they need to get going on the HOT
lanes and the study. “We need to begin to build this road today, because we need the jobs,” she said. “We also need to look seriously if HOT lanes will work . . . If we do not have real statistics, we’ll never be able to convince someone who might come in to help us with financing.” The bill was approved 36-13 in the Senate and goes back to the House for approval of amendments.
License plates The Senate also approved a bill allowing for special “Music Matters” license plates. The plates would cost $40 extra, and all revenue generated would go toward music programs in schools, which are often hard-hit by budget cuts. “This provides a means for private citizens to help fund the music program in their local schools,” said Sen. Steve Litzow, R-Mercer Island. “With education cuts, it’s a great opportunity to help the music program.” The measure passed 47-2 in the Senate and returns to the House for approval of amendments. Lawmakers from both the House and Senate are racing to get their measures passed ahead of Tuesday’s deadline to hear bills from the opposite house.

House budget that cuts $4.4 billion advances By Manuel Valdes The Associated Press
OLYMPIA — Washington state House lawmakers approved Saturday their version of the next two-year state budget, passing 53-43 a proposal that would slash $4.4 billion from state spending. With two weeks left in the 2011 legislative session, Saturday’s vote advances lawmakers in Olympia one
step closer toward slashing a projected $5.1 billion deficit in the state budget. The Senate is expected to release its budget next week. Majority Democrats said the budget is sustainable and responsible as the state struggles to climb out of the Great Recession. Minority Republicans said the budget keeps overspending, and some balked at the proposal of privatizing state liquor distribution.
The proposed budget cuts nearly $485 million from higher education and transfers $214 million in funds. The House’s plan also halts automatic increases to state employee retirement plans to save $362 million and takes another $216 million from kindergarten through fourth grade class-size programs.
State Legislature narrows definition of service animals The Associated Press
OLYMPIA — The state Legislature has approved a bill that narrows the definition of service animals allowed in restaurants and grocery stores to dogs and miniature horses, putting state law in line with federal regulations The restaurant industry lobbied for the bill, saying that it’s necessary to keep customers in establishments where food is sold from trying to pass off fer-
rets, parrots, monkeys, fullsize horses or snakes as service animals. The bill would bring the state in line with the Americans with Disabilities Act, which will implement March 15 new regulations recognizing only trained dogs and mini horses as service animals. Current state law defines a service animal as any animal trained to aid a disabled person and requires that those animals
be allowed access to all “places of public resort, accommodation, assemblage or amusement.” On Friday, Sen. Pam Roach voted against the bill, saying that horses often defecate where they stand and wouldn’t be sanitary animals to have in a restaurant. But the measure cleared the state Senate 46-2 in the end and now heads to the governor’s desk.

Peninsula Daily News for Sunday, April 10, 2011
My mailbox: A world of surprises IN AN ERA where email is synonymous with unsolicited offers for goods and services of no actual value, it’s nice to know you can still go to your physical mailbox for the Bruce same thing. Cameron I have a collection of advertisements I’ve received through the mail that puzzle me, such as the one offering me “Free, prepaid cremation services,” but “the offer ends soon!” Let me parse this one. Am I the only person who sees a contradiction between the words “free” and “pre-paid?” And what’s the message in “offer ends soon”? Are they saying, in essence, “hurry up and die”? Bottom line is that I don’t want cremation services, and by the time I need them, I will be incapable of wanting anything.
But at least they’re free. As long as I pre-pay. Another mailing warns me that “plant protein can kill you” and that “the more you eat, the sooner you will die.” These are pretty dire pronouncements (though luckily if I do die, I can get free cremation). I immediately take this to mean that I should stop eating vegetables and head to the drivethru for a bag of burgers and cheesecake on a stick. Unfortunately, what the flier is saying is neither that simple nor that glorious. Apparently, most bread has gluten in it, and by reading some of the Wikipedia entry about gluten, I’ve decided I don’t want to understand what this means. The flier suggests I should only eat sourdough bread from this one company, but the stuff is really expensive, and there’s no pre-payment option to get some for free. A lot of people can’t eat gluten, including a good friend of mine who doesn’t eat this sourdough bread either, so apparently
the “my bread or die” thing is a little overwrought. I actually responded to one item in my mailbox: an offer to purchase HD sunglasses. “Imagine,” the flier said, “seeing everything in High Definition. “Well now you can, with these special sunglasses made with New Technology.” This was pretty exciting to me. When I look at the world, it’s not in High Definition — it’s just in, well, Definition. Wearing a pair of these glasses would mean everything would be sharper and clearer, right? Makes perfect sense. I called the 800 number. “I can’t wait to get a pair of these sunglasses so everything will be in High Definition,” I told the operator. “My only question is, do you have a version of HD glasses that are also in 3D?” There was a long pause. “It doesn’t look like they are available in 3D,” she finally replied.
“I have them in Stylin’ Black and Ultra Stylin’ Brown. Those are the only two options.” “So, if I wear these glasses, everything will be sharper and clearer, but it won’t be in 3D?” “Yes, sir. You’ll be able to see in HD, but I don’t see anything here about 3D.” “That’s sort of like watching a ‘Flintstones’ cartoon in HD. It would be clear, but flat. I am not sure I’d want to drive a car like that.” “These are specially designed for you to wear them driving a car.” “Hmmm . . . Well, let me eat a sourdough sandwich, and I’ll call you back,” I told her. As long as I am stylin’, I should take advantage of an offer for a free pair of men’s adult protective undergarments, which, according to the mailer, have an “attractive design.” I could put them on and walk down the street, and everyone would be impressed with me. “Look at Bruce in his attractive protective underpants and
his Ultra Stylin’ HD sunglasses!” they’d exclaim enviously. Then they’d run over to help me because I’d walk into a light pole because I’d see it very clearly but would lack the depth perception to avoid it. “Cremate me now,” I’d say, handing them my card for the free cremation that I pre-paid for. “Between the light pole and the plant protein, I’m a goner anyway.” “Nice underwear,” they’d reply. They probably wouldn’t cremate me on the spot, so I’d fumble my way home in my non3D sunglasses, eventually making my way to my mailbox. Who knows what other exciting offers might await me there?

“Make it easier for people to start new businesses by lowering rents and reducing government fees so they could be in a position to create jobs and hire new employees.”
“Replace all the politicians. Most of the current ones are so tied in with special interests, it’s ridiculous. With new ones, they wouldn’t reach so deeply into our own pockets.”
“More tourismrelated efforts. This is an incredible place to live. I recently enjoyed a wildlife boat tour out of Port Townsend. We need something like that out of Port Angeles.”
“The area has been tied into logging for so many years. We need more training in electrical and computer technical areas to get new businesses. Technology is the future.”
“Don’t be afraid of the big-box stores. They bring in a bigger tax base and fairly good jobs. We need more than just the antique stores. We have enough of them already.”
“More consensus in regards to regulations. Less red tape and more cooperation in doing business. Less regulations with private and public concerns would help. Less hassles.”
“It’s all part of the cycle of money. Banks need to lend more to get people back on their feet. People aren’t spending, and housing is down. But it’s picking up a little, though.”
“Bring in businesses that are low-tech and are right for the area. That can stimulate the economy and can hire and train people for the long term.”
Peninsula Voices Golf coverage I have now lived on the North Olympic Peninsula for nearly six years, and having subscribed to the Peninsula Daily News all this time, I continue to wonder why there is seldom anything published regarding results of professional golf tournaments. Does the PDN have a policy regarding this or just a hang-up with the PGA, LPGA and Champions tours? An example is the April 4 issue of the PDN. There appears to be not one word on the results of the PGA Houston Open, LPGA Kraft Nabisco Championship (a major for the LPGA) or the senior Champions Tour. Hopefully, there will be reports on the Masters Tournament [which ends today]. Thomas T. Claudson, Port Ludlow We asked sportswriter and columnist Matt Schubert for a response. Here it is: In January 2010, The Associated Press changed the way it disseminates
stories to its member publications. Under the PDN’s new agreement with the news service, we no longer are given access to golf results and stories for a majority of the tournaments on each professional tour. The PDN sports desk makes every effort to get in golf results and stories from the major professional tours when available. In addition, PDN golf columnist Michael Carman writes every Wednesday about national stories when he has the space, but his primary focus is on the North Olympic Peninsula golf scene.
Felt ‘manipulated’ While my heart went out to the writer of the April 3 letter “Regrets and Sorrows,” was it appropriate for the Peninsula Voices section? No local issue demanded such a personal account of a personal crisis. Frankly, I was appalled that the PDN printed a letter so biased by personal belief and then went one step further by naming the

city parks, Pioneer Park is used very little. For several years now, I have been working on making improvements to Pioneer Park, such things as the new sign out front, cutting limbs off the fir tree so the totem pole can be seen and improved lighting. In the future, I hope to see some picnic tables spread around, a lawnbowling area, a path around the outside area and improved parking and lighting for night use. Pioneer Park is a wonderful place but is underused by the public. Regarding the April 6 letter by Sequim Prairie Garden Club past President Liz Phelps (“Pioneer Park”), the improvements we have made and continue to make will enhance and protect the park. Also, we have no intention of dropping the city’s Sequim park maintenance lease with the As a citizen of Sequim, a garden club. former member of the We don’t plan to cut Sequim Parks Board and a down any trees, including current member of the City the grove of Garry oak Council, I have had a long trees that Phelps refers to, interest in Pioneer Park and its wonderful grounds. unless they are dangerous.

Rave of the Week TO THE YOUNG parents and younger son who replaced my grandson’s popped balloonsword in Sequim. Amazing example of empathy, compassion in action. Your children are blessed to have parents with the foresight, love and intelligence to raise wonderful global citizens. You keep me hopeful for the future.
. . . and other Raves TO THE KIND doctors, nurses and others who donate their services and precious time at the VIMO [Volunteers in Medicine of the Olympics] clinic. This is a vital and excellent facility, made possible only through the generosity of these individuals. I am sure I speak for many others in expressing my appreciation and heartfelt thanks. A PINK FLAMINGO rave to
the individuals and businesses who donated to the Port Angeles High School Senior Class substance-free graduation celebration. It was greatly appreciated! TOE-TAPPING RAVES FOR the local bluegrass fiddling and roots-music talent we have here on the North Olympic Peninsula. The recent Old Time Fiddlers Concert at Sequim High was wonderful. Some of these same folks perform for free at the Sequim Prairie Grange on Macleay Road in Sequim the second Saturday of the month (except for June, July and August). RAVES TO THE Forks radio station!

THE ROTARY CLUB daffodils are so beautiful coming into town (Port Angeles). Another rave to the people who planted the daffodils coming into Four Seasons Ranch (Port Angeles). It really makes my day. HOW DO YOU say thank you to two young and younger gentlemen who picked this little old lady up out of a puddle Monday, April 4, at the Sequim Walmart parking lot? One gentleman walked me to my car. So again, a huge thank-you to you both.

You’re 95! Happy birthday, PDN! Web version nets 1 million page views Peninsula Daily News
A familiar face on the North Olympic Peninsula, first seen in the spring of 1916, turned 95 today. The face belongs to the Peninsula Daily News, and it reflects the changing times — the area’s growth, the successes, the disappointments, laughter and tears of the people who call Jefferson and Clallam counties home. In addition to being on newsprint, the PDN now has an “e-Edition” — you can read, page by page, an exact digital replica of the printed paper on your computer, iPad or smartphone — and it operates the most popular website on the Peninsula. In March, www.peninsula dailynews.com scored more than 1 million monthly page views, a new record. The newspaper was first published April 10, 1916. It was called the Port Angeles Evening News when started by A.A. Smith and E.B. Webster, newspapermen whose blood may have been mixed with printer’s ink. The name was changed to The Daily News in 1972 and to Peninsula Daily News in 1987 to reflect its switch from afternoon to morning publication and its 156-mile circulation area from Hood Canal to LaPush. The Daily News cost 5 cents a week when it was begun by Webster and Smith in 1916. The first front page included accounts of fighting between the French and Germans at Verdun, France, in World War I, the pursuit of Mexican bandit and revolutionary Pancho Villa by American cavalrymen in West Texas — and an effort by Port Angeles Mayor E.J. Walton to recruit students to participate in the city’s Clean Up Week. “The Peninsula community is still as scrappy and as feisty as it was in 1916,” said John Brewer, the newspaper’s sixth publisher and editor. “I think we reflect that in the newspaper, too, and online. “We enjoy publishing this area’s endless news — and the endless variety of opinions about that news! “As everyone here knows, we’re a local, local, local newspaper, and what many may not know is that we actually publish two newspapers Sunday through Friday — we’ve been doing this since June of 1998 — one edition for our readers in Port Angeles, Sequim and the West End, the other for readers in Port Townsend and the rest of East Jefferson County.” The PDN does more than carry news and advertising. “We contribute to more than 25 community organizations across both counties,” said Brewer. “And we raised just short of $250,000 last year for our Peninsula Home Fund, which gives ‘a hand up, not a handout’ to individuals, families, single moms, seniors across the Peninsula without deducting one penny for administration or overhead.”
1 million page views
Website analytics The PDN’s website is far and away the dominant news and information website for the North Olympic Peninsula, according to statistics from Omniture, Quantcast and Google Analytics, all of which measure Web traffic. The number of page views demonstrates the volume of traffic a website receives. A “visit” is when one person is active on a website. “Unique visitors,” in Web jargon, come back again and again for fresh information. Their Internet address is counted only once no matter how many times they visit the site. The print PDN is also strong, with an audited Monday through Friday circulation of 14,202 as of last week. This translates to 34,000 daily readers, more than one-third of the Peninsula’s total population. Sunday audited circulation was 15,587, with a Peninsula-wide readership of more than 46,000. But both circulation numbers were down last week, reflecting several hundred temporary stops because of spring-break vacations. In addition to using independent agencies to measure its Web traffic, the PDN is the only newspaper on the Peninsula with its print edition circulation verified by an independent A look at the Peninsula Daily News then and now. auditor, the national Audit TOP: First front page of the Port Angeles Evening News on April 10, 1916.

Rescuers broke into the home — the man had called 9-1-1, saying his wife wasn’t breathing and that he was starting CPR — and tried to revive both the man, 60, and his wife, 59, but both died, apparently from heart attacks. The man was found slumped over his wife.

Woods doesn’t M’s lose sixth straight, channel second at Safeco Field old mojo By Tim Booth
The Associated Press
THE CROWD FOLLOWED him eagerly from hole to hole, still buzzing about what happened the previous afternoon. Tiger Woods was back, and if anyone needed a Tim reminder all Dahlberg they had to do was look at the giant white leaderboard on the first fairway and see the nine birdies he posted in the second round. It was all coming together according to plan, after a year when nothing went according to plan. Sure, the youngsters behind him had the lead, but the faithful at Augusta National had seen this act before and they knew it was only a matter of time before order was restored in the game of golf once again. That was the ALSO . . . way they wanted ■ McIlroy it to happen. makes move That was the to surge way it always ahead at used to happen. Masters/B4 Once again, it didn’t happen. The enigma that is Tiger Woods was on full display on a hot, steamy day at the Masters, and it wasn’t for the faint of heart. This was supposed to be the day he finally put to rest questions about his swing and his mental state, but there were no answers to be had on the finely manicured grasses of Augusta National. Those who believe Woods is on the verge of being his old self will point to his brilliant shots and the putts that might have been. Those who believe Woods will never be the same will replay video of him blading a chip and missing two putts within four feet, golfing transgressions that the old Tiger would never have committed. He’s a puzzle who refuses to be solved, headed back to greatness one moment before returning to mediocrity the next. He didn’t need a 64 in the third round to contend today, but the 74 he shot pretty much ensures he won’t.
McIlroy in control Seven shots back, with a ton of players between him and leader Rory McIlroy, he’s as done as some of the patrons who baked for hours in the Georgia sun to catch a glimpse of him. There will be no fifth green jacket today, even if Woods is the last one to figure that out. Asked if he could still win the Masters, Woods gave a one word answer: “Absolutely.” Ask almost anyone who watched him play a maddeningly inconsistent round Saturday and they might sum up his chances in two words: “No way.” Actually, the guy who watched him closer than most in the third round was more charitable. Playing partner K.J. Choi said Woods is hitting good shots and has a nice rhythm to his swing. “He’s better than where he was last year,” Choi said. That’s not saying a lot because Woods was miserable most of last year after coming back from his selfimposed exile to struggle with a swing change. Things haven’t been a whole lot better this year, though Woods was hopeful he might find some magic on a golf course he knows intimately with a swing that seems to be coming around. The 66 he shot on Friday brought back the roars from fans who wanted to believe. Woods himself seemed to believe as he walked off the course just three shots off the lead and with the kind of momentum that would normally make the leaders sleep uneasily. “It’s going to be fun,” he said. The fun didn’t last long. Shooting a round to get in contention may not be easy, but shooting a good round once you’re in contention is even harder. Turn

They can’t get key hits with runners waiting to come home. Cleveland’s Justin Masterson took a shutout into the seventh inning on Saturday night, striking out nine, but Seattle squandered numerous scoring opportunities in a 2-1 loss to the Indians. Seattle was just 1 for 11 with runners in scoring position and during its current six-game losing streak is 9 for 51 with runners at second or third base.

Etched into stone Volunteers feted at NOBAS opening day By Matt Schubert

PORT ANGELES — Art Girt sipped his sparkling cider to keep from choking up. His former coaching partner, Denver Gouge, as well as fellow longtime North Olympic Baseball and Softball volunteers Don Schlemmer and Wendy McBride, had just been recognized at the dedication of the Lincoln Park Monument on Saturday afternoon.
“He wouldn’t let you know how much [it meant]. He’d go away and probably have a tear,” said Girt, fighting back a few tears of his own. “He probably wouldn’t have [attended], but he would have come later whenever everyone Their names were the first was gone. etched into a stone tablet that “He was there for the kids.” now rests behind the outfield fence of Field No. 1 at the NOBAS Many over the decades complex.

Youth Sports allowed the league to thrive for 50-plus years. First on the list were Gouge, Schlemmer and McBride. After more than three decades of service from each, the recognition was a long time coming, Girt said. “People don’t realize what gets done here with the volunteers,” Girt said. “People show up at the ball park, and it looks real nice and everything is painted and fixed, but it doesn’t just happen. Guys like Denver, Don Schlemmer and Wendy McBride, they’ve done it for over 30 years.”
Sequim showing no mercy
Early scores vault Seattle past Chicago
Peninsula Daily News
The Associated Press
AUBURN — At some point, the Sequim softball team is going to have to play a seven-inning game. Just not on Saturday. The Wolves earned their eighth straight mercy-rule victory to begin the season with a 20-0 thumping of nonleague opponent White River on Saturday.
SEATTLE — O’Brian White scored his second goal in two games and set up another to give the Seattle Sounders their first Major League Soccer win of the season, 2-1 over the Chicago Fire on Saturday. Steve Zakuani scored the go-ahead goal in the 25th minute after Diego Chaves tied it for Chicago.
The Associated Press
Seattle Sounders’ O’Brian White, center, celebrates with teammates after he scored a goal against the Chicago Fire during the first half Saturday’s match in Seattle.
The Fire are 0-3-2 against the Sounders since Seattle joined the league in 2009. “Was it technically our best game? Maybe not,” Sounders coach Sigi Schmid said. “But at the end of the day, offensively, the big talk was, can we score goals? Now, we have five goals in our last three games.” On his goal, Zakuani got behind his defender down the left sideline, and White found him with a pass. Zakuani took the ball into the box against Fire defender Jalil Anibaba and, from near the left post, sent a shallow shot across the goalmouth into the back right corner behind goalkeeper Sean Johnson.

Memorial: Volunteers receive honors Continued from B1 NOBAS President Jim Lunt said the idea for the monument has been years in the making. The concept was first approved by the league board in 2004 but wasn’t completed until last fall. With board member Warren Stevens and Tom Rankin, owner of ONA Landscaping, spearheading the effort, it was constructed in three weeks time. Donations of labor and materials were made by Angeles Concrete, Tom Wood Concrete, Peninsula Nurseries, ONA Landscaping, the Lower Elwha Klallam tribe and Port Angeles Parks and Recreation Division. “My dad would be honored because of it,” said Ron Schlemmer, whose father, Don, is considered by some to be the father of Little League in Port Angeles. “He kept going a long time after I had been out of the program [in the 1970s]. “He spent a lot of years out here.
“He’d still like to be out here.” Don helped jump-start the effort that eventually affiliated Port Angeles youth baseball with Little League Inc. in 1973.
Umpire, too Nicknamed “The Bear,” he went on to umpire games for 50-plus years while carrying the unofficial title as commissioner. The Bear served as the umpire-in-chief for decades while also managing the Port Angeles entry into a highly competitive Victoria men’s fastpitch softball league across the water. He umpired games as late as 2005, but recently had both of his legs amputated in his fight against diabetes. “They’ve got him up walking now,” Ron said. “He was hoping he could get here. “I’ll call him [Saturday night]. I’ll call him and tell him how it all went. He’ll be happy.”
McBride was known as “the Hamburger Lady” to many of the children who came through the Lincoln Park diamonds. First working out of a tiny trailer in 1972, McBride volunteered as the lead concessions stand operator for 32 years before succumbing to a brain tumor in 2004. She committed 30 hours a week to running the operation from April through June each year. Her only compensation: The gas money it took to drive to and from her Sequim home each day. Even after her youngest son left the program in 1978, she continued her role at the concession stand while also working as a nursing aide. “The park out there was her life,” McBride’s brother, Robin Messersmith, said. “She dedicated everything she had to that. That was her important thing in life. “The kids that used to be in that program [as players], now they are part of

M’s honor Niehaus prior to home opener The Associated Press
SEATTLE — Hall of Fame broadcaster Dave Niehaus was honored by the Seattle Mariners before Friday night’s home opener against Cleveland, the first time in franchise history Niehaus has not called Seattle’s first home game. Niehaus died of a heart attack last November. He had called Diego Segui’s first pitch in franchise history on April 6, 1977, through the end of the 2010 season, all told 5,284 of the Mariners’ 5,385 games. He helped teach the game to a region void of the major league with the exception of the Seattle Pilots’ one-year experiment in 1969. Adults and kids regularly tuned in on summer evenings to hear Niehaus try to put his best spin on what were among the worst teams in baseball during much of the club’s history. Many of them showed up Friday night as the team honored its narrator.
“He was the heart, soul and voice of the Mariners,” public address announcer Tom Hutyler told the sold-out crowd as the team began its tribute to Niehaus. Even newcomers seemed to understand Niehaus’ impact. When his image was first shown on the stadium videoboard, new shortstop Brendan Ryan took off his cap and joined in the standing ovation from the rest of the crowd. Seattle rapper Macklemore performed a tribute song to Niehaus on the grass in front of home. That was the precursor to Niehaus’ widow, Marilyn, throwing out the first pitch to AL Cy Young winner Felix Hernandez. With Niehaus’ tag line of “My Oh My” written in dirt behind second base, his grandchildren called out “Play Ball!” before the first pitch. Niehaus was the recipient of the 2008 Ford C. Frick award and was inducted into the broadcasters’ wing of the Baseball Hall of Fame.

McIlroy’s tourney to lose Young Irishman up four strokes on field By Doug Ferguson The Associated Press
AUGUSTA, Ga. — It was a roar that defines the Masters, so loud it startled even Tiger Woods. Rory McIlroy, who already dazzled the crowd with a shot through the pines to the back of the 17th green, raised the putter in his left hand as the birdie putt turned toward the hole, then slammed his right fist when the ball disappeared into the cup. T h e ALSO . . . cheer was ■ Results so loud that after third Woods, who round at had settled Masters over his tourney/B2 shot in the 18th fairway, had to back away. After all these years of crushing the hopes of so many others, the four-time Masters champ finally felt what it was like on the other end. That moment — and right now, this Masters — belongs to McIlroy. “I had been waiting on a putt to drop all day,” McIlroy said Saturday. “And for it to drop there, it was great timing.” It sent the 21-year-old from Northern Ireland to a 2-under 70 and gave him a four-shot lead going into today, the largest 54-hole lead at the Masters since a 21-year-old Woods led by nine in 1997. Woods is not close to him after a 74 to finish seven shots behind. Chasing after McIlroy are former Masters champion Angel Cabrera, Charl Schwartzel, K.J. Choi and Jason Day.
“It’s a great position to be in,” McIlroy said. “I feel comfortable with my game, comfortable with the way I prepared, and all of a sudden I’m finally feeling comfortable on this golf course. “With a combination like that, you’re going to feel pretty good.” He is making it look easy. That bounce in his step turned into a swagger as he walked to the 18th tee, ripped another drive and walked toward the green to a loud ovation — perhaps a preview to a coronation.
Notable fan Following him around Augusta National was U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell, who missed the cut but didn’t want to miss out on his countryman having a chance to give Europe another major. “He just texted me and told me he loves me,” McIlroy said. “I don’t know if that’s him or the beer talking. “No, it’s great to see him out there and I appreciate his support. He’s going to know how I’m feeling. Here’s a major champion and he got it done last year at Pebble. “Hopefully, I can emulate that feeling and get a major myself.” McIlroy was at 12-under 204 and will play in the final group today with Cabrera, who won the Masters two years ago and is the only major champion within six shots of McIlroy. Cabrera has fallen to No. 97 in the world, with only two top 10s in the last year. He didn’t think he had much of a chance when he arrived at Augusta.
The Associated Press
Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland reacts after making a birdie putt on the 17th hole during the third round of the Masters on Saturday in Augusta, Ga. But he’s starting to believe after a 67. “Now that I see that I’m playing well, I sure think I can do it,” Cabrera said. The group at 8-under 208 also includes Schwartzel (68), Choi (71) and Day, the 23-year-old Australian who took the lead on the front nine with a long birdie on No. 5, but paid for his aggressive putting and had to settle for a 72. “I’m not getting ahead of myself,” McIlroy said. “I know how leads can dwindle very quickly. “I have to go out there [today], not take anything for granted, and go out and play as hard as I’ve played the last three days. If I can do that, hopefully things will go by way.” The challenge from Woods, who started the third round only three shots behind, never materialized. He squandered birdie chances with a fairway metal that went too long on
the par-5 eighth, a 5-foot birdie putt that never had a chance on No. 9, a shocking miss for par from 2 feet on No. 11 and a three-putt par on the 15th after an amazing hook around the trees that barely cleared the water. “The way he played yesterday, you would expect him to come and play well,” McIlroy said. “Sometimes it happens, and sometimes it doesn’t. But as I said, I really don’t care about anyone else in this golf tournament, other than myself.” Woods ended his streak of 16 rounds at par or better at a major he won four times. The final hole summed up his day, perhaps the tournament, and the state of golf as it prepares for the next generation. For so many years, it was Woods who delivered big birdies that made everyone else take notice.
This time, it was McIlroy who forced Woods to back off. He then hit his approach over the green and missed a 6-foot par putt. “I just made nothing,” Woods said. “I hit the ball well all day. That wasn’t the problem. “Take away the two three-putts there, a couple of unforced errors and it should have been a pretty good round.” McIlroy didn’t have to make any such excuses. He has made only three bogeys over three rounds, and no three-putts, always a key at the Masters. He and Day were tied for the lead at 9 under as they made their way through Amen Corner, and McIlroy seized control on the 13th. A bold tee shot down the left side, where Rae’s Creek winds its way along the azaleas, gave McIlroy a clear shot with a 6-iron on the green and he two-putted for a birdie.
Day attacked the flag in the back left corner and went long, into the second cut. His delicate chip rolled back toward him, he putted up the slope about 6 feet below the hole and missed the putt to make bogey. The Australian was saved on the par-5 15th when his shot came up short, but stayed dry because the grass is not shaved as low as it normally is. He was able to get up-and-down for birdie to match another twoputt birdie by McIlroy. On the 16th, both were on the bottom shelf. Day gunned his putt about 6 feet past the hole and missed it coming back. McIlroy rolled his with better pace to pick up a par, and another stroke. Then came the 17th, where McIlroy hooked his approach around the pines to the back of the green, then holed the slick putt that unleashed his emotions and set off the loudest roar of the day.

Tiger Woods reacts after missing a putt on the 13th hole during the third round of the Masters on Saturday in Augusta, Ga.
Sounders: Keller comes up big Continued from B1 “It feels really good to get the three points,” White said. “We’re a work in progress. We’ve come close a couple times in the previous games, but we didn’t get the three points. It definitely feels good to get the first win.” Seattle got on the board first early in the seventh minute when Mauro Rosales crossed a target ball from the right side into the penalty area, and White went up for a header from 16 yards away that sailed into the upper right corner. Barely more than a minute later, Chicago tied it when Chaves, from 10 yards in front, redirected a short pass from Gaston Puerari into the back left corner past goalkeeper Kasey Keller.
“I think the team played well, and I think we had a very good second half,” Fire coach Carlos de los Cabos said. “We had two mistakes, and they took advantage of this. [But] I like my team because they are showing the evolution our team is having this season. “We had some chances to score, and we couldn’t come away with more goals.” Keller saw to that. He slapped away a shot by Chaves in the 59th minute, made a sliding save on a breakaway by Puerari midway through the 61st, and dived to stop a 16-yarder from straight in front by Marco Pappa in the 66th. It was redemption for Keller after a 2-2 tie at San Jose last Saturday in which the Earthquakes wiped out 1-0 and 2-1 leads.
“I’m just glad I was able to make some saves for the team,” Keller said. “The last game was a little frustrating because I was able to make a couple of saves in
the first half, and in the second half, they got that goal and we drew 2-2. “It was nice to finish it off this week and come up with the saves.”

SAN FRANCISCO — Prosecutors were down to their last chance, and possibly losing the case. Several apparent setbacks, culminating with the disastrous testimony of one of their main witnesses, had created a consensus that most — if not all — of the Barry Bonds perjury case had slipped through the government’s fingers after nearly three weeks of trial. Then Assistant U.S. Attorney Matt Parrella took to the lectern Thursday to deliver the government’s final word through his closing argument. “There’s a real irony to this case,” Parrella said minutes before the judge turned the case over the jury for deliberations. His simple pitch: Do you believe that a professional athlete of Bonds’ caliber would gullibly take unknown creams and liquids supplied by a sometimes homeless gym rat —
his personal trainer Greg Anderson? Bonds faces three charges of lying to a grand jury in 2003 by denying he knowingly took steroids and human growth hormone from Anderson and by saying no one other than his doctors injected him with anything. He also faces an obstruction of justice count. The jury deliberated all day Friday and will start work again Monday. If the panel of eight women and four men convict Bonds, legal analysts and courtroom observers said Parrella’s closing argument could very well have secured the deal for the government. “He did a good job of conveying to the jury the evidence it needed to consider,” said Golden Gate University law professor Peter Keane. “He gave a very simple explanation.” Keane and others also said Parrella made big strides in containing the con-

Retiree group receives grant Peninsula Daily News
PORT TOWNSEND — Olympic Community Action Program’s Retired and Senior Volunteer Program has received a $6,000 grant from the Corporation for National and Community Service to build a program to reach out to veterans in Jefferson County. “There are over 14,000 veterans here on the Peninsula and many are not getting access to all the services available to them,” said OlyCAP RSVP Manager Bob Logue. “The program will work to connect veterans living in the area with services, programs and benefits they earned while serving in our U.S. military; offer a focus on employment; and generally try to help rural veterans connect with other services they might need.”
Complements current It will complement current RSVP and OlyCAP activities. OlyCAP partners with COAST and American Legion Post 26 to support an emergency winter shel-

ter in Port Townsend that serves homeless veterans and frequently participates in local veterans’ standdown events. OlyCAP hopes to recruit at least 20 additional volunteers for the RSVP program to support the initiative, with veterans or family members of veterans especially welcome.
Trained volunteers Volunteers will be trained to understand available programs and to be able to work effectively with veterans. With the area’s large veteran population and heightened needs, Logue estimates that outreach could contact as many as 1,000 area veterans with the goal of improving their quality of life. “We have information now through Work Source and other organizations that veterans are not receiving all the services they have earned and deserve,” said Logue. For more information about the program or volunteering, phone Logue at 360-385-2571, ext. 6324.

Sparrows single-minded in nesting WHEN SONG SPARROWS tackle a task, they become singleminded. Nothing gets in their way, including one curious human. The bird I was watching was darting in every direction. He was under the deck, poking into the steps’ corners and pecking at the bases of the flower pots. As he worked, his appearance underwent a curious change. He began growing a mustache. It wasn’t a small, birdlike mustache. Little by little, this hardworking bird was adding to a set of whiskers a colonel in the Kaiser’s army would admire. Dog hair is a favorite nesting material used by many birds. This sparrow was collecting hair shed by our Norwegian elkhound-German shepherd mix. Lady’s undercoat could make her life miserable when the weather warmed. (Back in those days, we did have warm spring weather.) Combing her produced a large pile of hair, but the birds also gathered it from many places. A friend of ours who was a great proponent of using what birds “seek out in the wild” also provided dog hair for his nesting birds, but he offered other materials, too. When we have the occasion to watch a bird gathering nesting supplies, it’s time to make notes. Ken would collect the “cotton” you see on fireweed when it goes to seed. He gathered it in late summer, after nesting season, and saved it for the next year. Many of us have heard stories
BIRD WATCH about how swallows will Carson catch tossed feathers to use in their nests. Feather-tossing is fun and can even be spiritlifting. What other bird can you play catch with? If you don’t raise chickens, finding feathers for the swallows can be challenging. Start saving them when the late summer molt begins. Like the fireweed seed fluff, you will have a supply for next year. When the swallows are swooping through the air, even old down pillows are fair game. Finding nesting materials the birds will appreciate came to mind when a reader asked if dryer lint would be good to put out. I don’t know the complete answer to that. It would depend on what the lint consists of. If the clothes that produced it were wool and dryer sheets hadn’t been used, it would probably be good material. Cotton, on the other hand, doesn’t hold heat if it gets wet. Some synthetics might be OK, but in the overall picture, I prefer dog hair and other natural materials the birds seek out. I’ve never tried offering dry moss or the lichens that grow on tree trunks and limbs, but the birds use both. They also reuse
Barn swallow nestlings jostle each other while cheeping for Momma. them. Last year, a chickadee worked very hard to clean out and rob a house used the previous year. It was after the moss. String is also woven into bird nests. If you offer it to your birds, make sure you cut it into short lengths. If they wind a long piece of string into the nest, there is always the possibility of the nestlings getting wound up
in it and strangling. About 80 percent of the birds in our yard are now in pairs — the exception being those that will move on sometime this month. Nesting is on everyone’s mind, so this is a good time to offer some help. It’s a good way to see who has started nesting, and you may even discover where they are nesting.
Now it’s time to comb the dog if you have one — or maybe the neighbors will let you groom theirs.

What’s up with the City of Port Angeles’ New Electric and Water Meters?
The City of Port Angeles is installing a new Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) system because our water and electricity meters are wearing out and the rates the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) charges for power are going up. This system will offer many advantages over the old meters, including:
• More information and control over your electricity usage • Highly accurate meter readings, so that everyone is charged fairly • No need for meter readers to enter your yard
• Enhanced ability for the City to operate your utilities at the lowest possible cost • More conservation opportunities for you

Soldier fends off best friend’s sister DEAR ABBY: I am currently deployed in Afghanistan. My best friend’s little sister, “Brittany,” has had a crush on me for years. She has been straightforward about what she wants — marriage, kids, white picket fence, etc. She has always been like a little sister, so it has been awkward. I thought it was weird for a 15-year-old (at the time) to say that to an older soldier on R&R. During my deployment, Brittany has sent me care packages loaded with cookies. Maybe I should have kept my mouth shut about my weakness for homemade cookies, but hindsight is 20/20. Brittany has now called in the bribe by inviting me to her senior prom. Not wanting to mess with the steady supply of baked
DEAR ABBY Abigail
Van Buren said yes.
I figure it’s an appropriate way to say thanks for the cookies. I intend to make sure Brittany enjoys her prom with her medalcovered arm candy, but I need to let her know that while I’m flattered she thinks so highly of me, I’m not interested in dating her. I love her like a sister. I don’t want to break her heart. Any suggestions for a guy who’s about as subtle as a tank rolling down a

RSVP is the abbreviation for the French phrase “Repondez s’il vous plait,” which means “Please reply.” It’s important for the people planning the affair to know how many guests will attend so they can be properly provided for — for obvious reasons. So please be polite and don’t keep them wondering. Dear Abby: I’m in love with a woman named “Camille” who has three children from three different fathers. She has never been married. She also has a male “friend” whom she has her children calling “Daddy” even though he’s not. I have loved Camille for 20 years, and our paths recently crossed again. When I first meet her, she had only one child.
Camille says she loves me and wants us to be married, but I’m having a hard time accepting that all of these children’s fathers will be part of our life — as well as the “friend.” Can a psychologist help me get past this? Devoted in Bloomington, Minn. Dear Devoted: I don’t know. But before you take this relationship further, you should definitely see one.

Pick winner from brassica bracket WELL, UCONN WON the national championship, but you can pick your own winner from the brassica bracket, and to help with that selection and analysis is the rest of the team’s lineup. ■ Broccoli: Classified in the Italica group of brassica oleracea; derives as well from wild cabbages. The Romans cherished this plant some 2,000 years ago for its high nutritional value. The word “broccoli” is actually Italian, derived from the plural form “broccolo,” which means “the flowering top of a cabbage.” Like nearly all brassica, broccoli thrives in cool climates, with mild evenings and soil temperatures of less than 80 degrees, making your vegetable garden the ideal place to grow this amazing plant. Broccoli grows biannually but is harvested the first of the year as the head develops. Many varieties of broccoli, especially when the head is cut off short, produce many a small floret (mini-mini-head) around the main stalk for weeks. Broccoli should be sown or planted in 10- to 14-day successions in soil not too rich in manures or nitrogen, wherein rampant vegetative growth will occur in lieu of the edible head. Weed and cultivate the soil regularly. Broccoli should be kept moist in dry spells for crisp, flavorful produce. Incredibly high in vitamin C, dietary fiber and micronutrients, boiling it for more than a few minutes (4-5) reduces the nutrient value by 30 percent to 50 percent, but other cooking methods offer smaller nutrient losses. ■ Cauliflower: Brassica oleracea are the same species and share many structural features, but cauliflower produces
A GROWING CONCERN an inflorescent meristem May called a “curd.” Some varieties have leaves that curl inward, shading and covering the curd; ones that do not should have their inner leaves tied together for sun protection, otherwise the curd will turn an unattractive molted brown or greenish color. There are four distinct types of cauliflower: Italian — including the green, purple, yellow and orange cultivars and the ancestral forms. 1. Northwest European: Developed in France during the 19th century, these are great for winter, early spring and late fall production. 2. Northern European: These varieties are used widely in Europe and America for summer and early fall production and were developed in 19th-century Germany and include the ever-popular “snow ball.” 3. Asian: Tropical cauliflowers used in China and India and bred in the 19th century. The orange cauliflower “cheddar” and “orange bouquet” have 25 times the vitamin C of other white types, and all curds eaten raw contain 13 different vitamins and minerals. Plant a few every 10 days in a humus, rich, welldrained soil and keep uniformly moist during their entire growing period. They freeze very well. ■ Brussels sprouts: Believe it or not, this plant was probably
Things to Do
Book now for tulip fest WE ARE NOW in the midst of the 28th annual Skagit Valley Tulip Festival going on in and around La Conner, and everyone who reads me should know that not only is our weather here perfect for gardening, but it is most ideally suited for “spring bulbs,” of which tulips are the stars. Can you believe I’ve never attendant the blooming bonanza? And what about you? Have you yet? Well, Expeditions Northwest (formerly Victoria Express) is offering a fabulous, one-day boat excursion to the tulip festival Saturday, leaving from The Landing mall in Port Angeles at 7:30 a.m. and returning at 8 p.m. With food on the boat, a deluxe coach bus shuttling people to two tulip farms and sightseeing in La Conner, this could be the perfect flower fest. For $98, I am certainly going, and if any of you book a ticket as well, I would certainly answer any and all bulb questions. (The history of tulips is amazing.) If interested in supporting this new business, especially as it relates to horticultural interests, please phone Expeditions Northwest at 360-452-6210 for complete information or visit www.expeditionsnw.com or www.tulipfestival.org — and absolutely bring a camera! Andrew May first grown in Belgium (Brussels) in the 13th century and moved quickly throughout northern Europe because of its requirement of mild temperatures (4575 degrees, with best yields at 59-64 degrees) for good production. They take 90-180 days to mature and are most flavorful and sweet when harvested after a good frost. Edible sprouts grow along the long stalk and ripen from the lower to the upper, so each stalk can be harvested for a few weeks. They freeze great and store well, but most people have been turned off by a sulphurous odor and bitter taste that is caused by overcooking, which releases glucosinolate sinigrin and causes
the smell. Steam or boil for only 6 or 7 minutes. Brussels sprouts contain 15 essential vitamin and nutrients and, like most brassica, are high in dietary fiber. ■ Turnips: Brassica rapa is a temperate-climate-loving root crop originating in Asia and Europe and was known in Greek and Roman times. It was and is produced for both human and livestock consumption, depending on the variety. The leaves sprout directly above the in-ground root, with no visible crown. People also eat the very young small turnip leaves, which are a common side dish in the South. Baby turnips, which don’t

have multicolored varieties, are much smaller and are eaten whole — leaf and all. In 1881, the Household Cyclopedia said this about turnips: “The benefits derived from turnip husbandry are of great magnitude; light soils are cultivated with profit and facility; abundance of food is provided for man and beast . . .” ■ Rutabaga: Brassica napus napobrassica is from Sweden and was derived from cross-breeding cabbage and turnip plants. Rutabaga means “root bag” in Swedish. You can roast them, use them in soups or eat them raw, boiled, steamed or mashed. They will thrive in your garden, with the root protruding halfway out of the ground. They are a long crop of 90-plus days, so plan accordingly. ■ Bok choy: Brassica rapa, or Chinese cabbage. There are two distinct groups of bok choy, napa cabbage (pekinensis) and chinensis. Both are used as leafy greens, and bok choy means “white vegetable.” Bok choy is succulent in both stem and leaf, is great steamed, boiled or stir-fried, and is abundant in vitamins A and C. It is easily grown on the Peninsula and comingles very well in the garden with other vegetables. Plant or sow every two weeks. Well, there you go, plant many a brassica, and hold your own tournament to determine your kitchen table winner.

Death and Memorial Notice MARILYN JEAN ADOLPHSEN August 21, 1938 March 22, 2011 After a nine-year battle with cancer, Marilyn went to her well-deserved rest in heaven. She had been determined with a quiet dignity to remain a devoted wife, mother, sister and friend throughout her ordeal. She was an inspiration to her family and friends with her positive attitude, never complaining of the trials set in her path. A native of Port Angeles, she was born on a Sunday to parents Walter and Zora Scott. She attended school in Port Angeles and was in the Class of 1956, the first class to go all three years in the new Port Angeles High School. After graduating, she became a dental assistant and was active in the Washington State Dental

Marilyn was very active in the First United Methodist and Congregational Church, where she sang in the Chancel Choir for more than 50 years.
She loved to sing, starting in high school singing in the Nonnettes group. At church, besides the choir, she enjoyed singing in the Messengers group. Marilyn was a hardworker in the church for many years, helping with the bazaars, serving as President of the United Methodist Women’s group, Supportive Community and Bible Study groups. Marilyn was a former Rainbow Girl and was honored as a recipient of the Grand Cross of Color. She belonged to Beta Sigma Phi for more than 50 years and was a member of Tirzah Club and Daughters of the Nile. While her girls were growing up, she was active with Girl Scouts, 4-H and Rainbow Girls. Some of Marilyn’s favorite pastimes were camping, gardening, having fun at the family lake cabin, sewing — and a real passion for clamming!

President Barack Obama speaks with visitors to the Lincoln Memorial in the nation’s capital on Saturday, the day after an eleventh-hour budget deal between Republicans and Democrats avoided a government shutdown. The memorial and other Interior Department properties — including Olympic National Park — would have been closed to visitors.

And I certainly did that. Some of the cuts we agreed to will be painful. Programs people rely on will be cut back. Needed infrastructure projects will be delayed. And I would not have made these cuts in better circumstances. — President Obama Peninsula Daily News news services
WASHINGTON — President Obama signed into law on Saturday a bill that will keep the federal government running through most of next week — long enough for congressional leaders to put the finishing touches on a budget compromise that will keep the federal government funded for the remainder of the fiscal year.

Obama, Boehner both earn wins in budget compromise By Andrew Taylor The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Rivals in a divided government, President Obama and the most powerful Republican in Congress split their differences to stave off a federal shutdown that neither combatant was willing to risk. Their compromise is the result of a battle pitting the enduring power of the presidential veto and the White House soapbox — despite a “shellacking” in the last election — against a strong-willed GOP House speaker vaulted into office by a voter revolt against Washington’s free-spending ways. The resulting measure will bleed about $38.5 billion from the
day-to-day budgets of domestic agencies over just the next six months, the biggest rollback of such government programs in Boehner history. It allows Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, to claim his GOP shock troops had put Cabinet department operating budgets on track toward levels in place before Obama took office. In the end, the White House had to meet Boehner more than
halfway on spending. On the other side was a strongwilled Obama, who mostly succeeded in forcing Republicans to cave in on dozens of controversial conservative policy prescriptions — including rolling back environmental protections and cutting off Planned Parenthood from taxpayer assistance while protecting favored programs like education, clean energy and medical research. It was, in short, the type of split-the-differences deal that a political scientist might have predicted from the start, given the realities of divided government. Turn

Damaged pioneer tug under repair I SPENT TIME recently at the Port Townsend Boat Haven with Dee and Sara Meek. They are overseeing repairs to their vintage tugboat, Elmore, damaged as high winds whipped our area in late November. The wooden vessel had her bow stove in by a steel-hull commercial ON THE fishing boat WATERFRONT that spent the stormy night of Nov. 22 contin- David G. uously pumSellars meling the 122-year-old tug — it was no match. The next morning, Elmore lay badly damaged with more than three feet of water flooding her hull. Her entire bow was destroyed as were the inner and outer stem. The battering she took bent the stem of the anchor and twisted its flukes. Despite the crushing disappointment, Dee and Sara immediately went to work bailing out the water and making emergency repairs. On Nov. 24, Dee fired up her engine, and the Meeks slowly made their way from Port Hadlock Marina to Port Townsend, where a waiting TraveLift hauled her out of the water and placed her on the hard. Repairs to the tug, which was built of Douglas fir, are being made using Purpleheart, a heavy dense wood found in Central and South America. Once all the damaged wood was removed, they saw additional areas where the wood had gone bad, so the Meeks are resolving those issues as well. Elmore’s keel was laid in 1889, and she was launched in January 1890 as R.P. Elmore. The steam-powered vessel carried passengers and up to 40 tons of freight between Astoria and Tillamook, Ore., twice a week. She was then purchased by a group of Port Townsend businessmen in the mid ’90s (as in 1890s, folks), and in 1898 participated in the Klondike Gold Rush ferrying passengers and freight to Alaska. In 1901, R.P. Elmore became the flagship of the American Tug Boat Co., when her then-skipper, Capt. Ramwell, and a group of investors purchased the TowleThurston Towing Co. of Everett. A fire burned R.P. Elmore to the waterline in 1922. She was rebuilt as a combination tugboat and fish carrier with a load capacity of 18,000 pounds of salmon and renamed simply, Elmore. Her original steam engine was also replaced by a 110-horsepower, 3 cylinder diesel engine that was built by Washington

The Elmore, badly damaged during a windstorm last November, is getting new wood in the Port of Port Townsend yard. Fisherman’s Boatyard in Everett, bought the hollowed-out shell from Updike and restored her as Elmore. Dee and Sara Meek’s stewardship of Elmore began in 1990. As soon as they were handed the proverbial keys, they went right to work and replaced worn beams in the galley and made needed repairs to the main deck. The years 1993 to 1996 were spent in Eagle Harbor on Bainbridge Island, where Elmore received her ninth engine: a fourcylinder Atlas Imperial that generates 110 horsepower.

The Port Angeles Yacht Club was formed in 1937 and held its meetings in the Legion Hall on Ediz Hook until 1960. From 1961 to the present, the yacht club has been congregating at its clubhouse on the north side of the parking lot behind Castaways Restaurant off Marine Drive. From its inception, the club has been led by a board of directors more appropriately referred to as a bridge. The figurehead and typically the public face of the club is the commodore. This year the commodore is Steve DeBiddle. At the club’s regularly scheduled meeting Friday, the service and legacy of former commodores will be recognized and honored. Much of the evening will be spent in the sharing of the club’s history, viewing old photographs and no doubt telling a bilge load of mighty tall sea stories. Seven former commodores have been located, thanks to Melanie DeBiddle’s dogged persistence, and they will be honored along with the current club members who have served in that capacity.

NEW YORK — NBC’s “Today” show has been one of the most stable and successful programs in the history of television over the past 15 years. Now it faces the possibility of a major makeover. Co-host Meredith Vieira, the “newbie” on “Today” with five years in the earlymorning anchor chair, is leaning toward leaving when her contract expires in September, according to multiple reports last week. That news was barely digested when an unconfirmed “Entertainment Tonight” story suggested that her partner, Matt Lauer, also may leave when his contract is done in nearly 21 months.
The two anchors have not commented on their futures. “There seems to be an awful lot of speculation on news anchors these days, and it’s not our practice to comment on any of it,” NBC News spokeswoman Megan Kopf said. As this happens, the “Today” show magic number stands at 798. That’s how many consecutive weeks it has been No. 1 in the morning show ratings — more than 15 years without a loss to ABC’s “Good Morning America,” CBS’s “The Early Show” or anybody. It’s a gold mine for NBC, particularly important for the company as the network’s prime-time fortunes collapsed. The program, now four hours long, earned more than a half-billion dollars for NBC News in 2010, more than it ever has. “A lot of their strength has been that they have had a team together with

NBC’s “Today” show hosts Matt Lauer and Meredith Vieira on the set last summer. very strong interpersonal relationships for a long time,” said David Westin, former ABC News president. The team goes beyond the two main anchors, and it is one comfortable with itself and with viewers. Lauer has been with the show since 1994 and coanchor since replacing Bryant Gumbel in 1997. Newsreader Ann Curry has been there since 1997. Utility player Al Roker, who forecasts weather, does features and anchors the 9 a.m. hour, joined in 1996. “Today” averages 5.5 million viewers a day this season, compared with 4.7 million at “Good Morning America” and 2.7 million at “The Early Show,” according to the Nielsen Co. ABC has gained in viewers this season, but “Today” just recorded its widest margin of victory in seven years during the first quarter in the demographic it bases ad sales upon.
Transitions are a point of pride at NBC News, which passed the “Nightly News” baton smoothly from Tom Brokaw to Brian Williams. The 2006 exit of Katie Couric, a key component of the show’s success, was a real concern. But top NBC executive Jeff Zucker, who rose to prominence by running the “Today” show, lured Vieira from “The View” as a replacement and she fit in seamlessly. Vieira, 57, in an interview with Ladies’ Home Journal last fall, said: “I’ll know when it’s time to go, and I’m not afraid to go.” She has spoken of spending more time with her husband, author Richard M. Cohen, who wrote a bestselling book about coping with multiple sclerosis and colon cancer. She has a less time-consuming second job as host of the game show “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.”

Planned Parenthood, abortion issues remain Republicans vow to keep debate alive The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Republicans portray Planned Parenthood as primarily focused on performing abortions and — intentionally or not — using American taxpayer dollars to do it. Not so, say Democrats who counter that the group’s 800-plus health centers nationwide provide an array of services, from screenings for cancer to testing for sexually transmitted diseases. Abortion is just one of many procedures, and the law bars Planned Parenthood from using tax money for it. In the budget maelstrom Friday stood Planned Parenthood Federation of America, a 90-year-old organization now part of a decades-long congressional battle over abortion. Republicans wanted any legislation keeping the government operating to bar federal dollars for Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest provider of abortions. They wanted to distribute the money to the states.
‘The country is broke’ “The country is broke and the vast majority of Americans don’t want tax dollars to take the life of unborn children,” Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio., chairman of Republican Study Committee, told reporters in a conference call. Democrats said they saw a radical agenda against women’s health, especially poor and low-income women, and wouldn’t allow it, even if it meant shutting down the government. “It is appalling that Republicans would hold our economic recovery hostage for a ransom of denying millions of women Pap tests, breast exams, and birth control,” said Rep. Nita Lowey, D-N.Y. “It shows their top priority is not keeping our economic recovery on track — it is reviving divisive social issues.”

Actress Amy Madigan gestures while speaking during a rally on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., in support of Planned Parenthood on Thursday, the eve of the budget compromise. Late Friday, the White House and congressional negotiators reached a deal on the budget and a compromise on Planned Parenthood funds. Under the agreement, the Senate will hold a vote on the money, and it’s likely it would reject the House effort to cut off the cash. Abortion nearly scuttled President Obama’s health care overhaul in the final hours of debate last March. A year later, the stakes were higher, the political rhetoric fierce and the claims in need of clarification. Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind., wrote last month that the legislative fight is “Big Abortion vs. American taxpayers.” Giving its version, Planned Parenthood said it performed about 330,000 abortions last year, 3 percent of its total health care services.
Next on D.C. agenda: Fight over debt
The organization also said its doctors and nurses annually conduct 1 million screenings for cervical cancer, 830,000 breast exams and some 4 million tests and treatments for sexually transmitted diseases. Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, said in a statement: “Attacking Planned Parenthood’s preventive health care hurts women, does not cut the deficit or fix the economy, and must be stopped.”

Nine of the Senate’s Democratic women stood together at a midday Capitol Hill news conference vowing to stop the House GOP effort. “This is an opportunity for the right wing in the House to really sock it to women,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. Said Washington state’s Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Mountake Terrace: “These women are a mighty line of defense against cutting Planned Parenthood.” The organization said it receives $363 million in federal funds, getting its money from both the Title X program and Medicaid. Title X provides grants for family planning and related health services under a law signed by Republican President Richard M. Nixon in December 1970. Of the Title X money, Planned Parenthood gets about $70 million, some 25 percent of the $317 million in Title X spending. The organization’s annual budget is $1.1 billion and includes individual donations. Federal law bars Planned Parenthood from using tax dollars for abortion. In 1976, three years after the landmark Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion, Congress passed the Hyde Amendment which bars the use of taxpayer funds for abortion except in cases of rape, incest or to save the life of the mother. It annually is attached to the congressional spending bills. But Republicans argue that often all the money ends up in the same account for Planned Parenthood.
By Jackie Calmes The New York Times
WASHINGTON — The down-to-the-wire partisan struggle over cuts to this year’s federal budget has intensified concern in Washington, on Wall Street and among economists about the more consequential clash coming over increasing the government’s borrowing limit. Congressional Republicans are vowing that before they will agree to raise the current $14.25 trillion federal debt ceiling — a step that will become necessary in as little as five weeks — President Obama and Senate Democrats will have to agree to far deeper spending cuts for next year and beyond than those contained in the six- Geithner month budget deal agreed to late Friday night. Republicans have also signaled that they will again demand fundamental changes in policy on health care, the environment, abortion rights and more, as the price of their support for raising the debt ceiling. In a letter last week, Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner told congressional leaders the government would hit the limit no later than May 16. He outlined “extraordinary measures” — essentially moving money among federal accounts — that could buy time until July 8.
Unable to pay off maturing debt? Once the limit is reached, the Treasury Department would not be able to borrow as it does routinely to finance federal operations and roll over existing debt; ultimately it would be unable to pay off maturing debt, putting the United States government — the global standard-setter for creditworthiness — into default. The repercussions in that event would be as much economic as political, rippling from the bond market into the lives of ordinary citizens through higher interest rates and financial uncertainty of the sort that the economy is only now overcoming, more than three years after the onset of the last recession. Given the short time frame for action and the prospect of an intractable political clash, leaders in both government and business are already moving to avert a crisis that most likely would be “a recovery-ending event,” as Ben S. Bernanke, the Federal Reserve chairman, testified recently in the Senate. He described a sequence of events that “would cascade through the financial markets,” provoking another credit crisis like that in 2008 and causing interest rates to jump.
Cuts: Give-take of budget negotiations
Wins: Final deal
What was cut Just like any compromise, as Obama noted, everyone had to give something up. Some of the things for which funding was banned: n Funding to transfer prisoners from the Guantanamo Bay detention center to the U.S. mainland n The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which was created last year and which Republicans have been widely critical of, will now have to undergo an annual audit on its use of funding. n Funding for abortions in the District of Columbia will be banned.
RY IVE DELEE T F MA HAZ NO FEE
(If you are confused by this because federal funding for abortions was already banned in general, you are not alone.) n According to congressional aides and business groups, the budget compromise agreement strips altogether a program that would have enabled workers to opt out of their employer-offered healthcare insurance and shop for their own coverage on the health-care changes The Affordable Care Act will create starting in 2014. While ending the program would save $4 billion over 10 years, it wouldn’t result in any immediate spending cuts because it isn’t set to begin for three years. Under this provision, employers would have had to help subsidize the cost of insurance purchased by workers on the health-care exchanges. It would have only been available to lower-income employees who struggle to afford insurance premiums under the health care offered by their firms. The measure was strongly opposed by groups like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Manufacturers Association,

who argued that it would raise health-care costs for company owners. n The budget bill will also cut $2.2 billion in funding from a program that would encourage the development of health-care COOPS across the country — not-for-profit entities that would compete with private for-profit health insurance companies. n In the compromise, Obama is prohibited from additional funding for the IRS, which could affect the agency’s ability to actually enforce the health care law.
n The compromise also calls for several new studies on the effectiveness of the health care law — its “impact on premiums, the waivers the administration has given to limited-benefit health plans, the comparative effectiveness research funds in the law and the 2009 stimulus package, and the cost of the contractors who have been hired to implement the law.” Republicans hope that they can eventually defeat it if it is proven to be less effective than Democrats had hoped.

Cle Elum rancher Jim Hanson feeds his livestock at Swauk Prairie Bison on a recent rainy day.
Bison meat demand beyond ranch supply Proponents tout benefits for health By Erin Snelgrove
CLE ELUM — Not a day goes by when Jim Hanson doesn’t receive emails and phone calls from people requesting bison meat. Unfortunately, the Cle Elum rancher has none to sell. “I have more customers than I can supply. It’s an everyday thing,” said Hanson, who has raised bison for 21 years at Swauk Prairie Bison. “There will be a real shortage of meat for a while.” The meat — long touted for its health benefits — has gained a growing and loyal following in recent years, so much so that national demand has outstripped supply. Although producers are trying to increase their herds, they said doing so requires keeping their heifers from slaughter. More meat will become available in coming years, but for now, they said there’s little they can do. “Any bit of [increased] interest will overwhelm the supply,” Hanson said, noting that he’s selling out of meat as soon as it’s avail-
able, which didn’t happen until midsummer a few years ago. “It’s so subject to fluctuations like that.” Bison meat is low in fat and cholesterol and devoid of antibodies and hormones, said Dave Carter, executive director of the National Bison Association in Westminster, Colo. But because the meat was rumored to be tough and gamey, there wasn’t much interest in it until 2000. “We had to get people to take their first taste of bison,” Carter said about his association’s marketing efforts. “Then they wanted more.”
Bison ranches Bison are raised in all 50 states, including the big island of Hawaii and Long Island, N.Y. Only a handful of bison ranches are found in this state, mostly in Eastern Washington in and around Cle Elum, Ellensburg and the Yakima Valley. The benefits of bison, Carter said, are that they take care of themselves, they calve on their own and they’re known for surviving even the most severe weather conditions. “There’s nothing more sustainable in our part of the world than an animal that has been here for tens
of thousands of years,” he said. “There’s nothing Mother Nature can throw at them that bison haven’t seen.” But as Nick McCormack can testify, the animals should never be underestimated. Because they’re wild and willful, they need a strong, electric fence to keep them in line, he said. “They have a 2-year-old mind in a 40-year-old body. They like to tear stuff up,” said McCormack, the ranch manager for Badger Pocket Bison Ranch near Ellensburg. “They’re comfortable with me. I’m comfortable with them. But at the same time, you can never trust them.” McCormack looks after 11 cows, 11 calves and two breeding bulls for the ranch’s owners, Ron and Vickie Barela. Although he wants to increase the herd to 70, he said the process takes a while. Heifers don’t deliver their first calf until age 3 — a year later than beef cattle. On top of that, bringing calves up to weight takes two years, he said. “The demand is high, the supply is not,” said McCormack, adding he won’t have more meat to sell until next spring. “Everybody wants it right now.” Hanson, who keeps 30 to 50 bison, has noticed the same trend. His customers have multiplied through word of mouth, and his meat supply has dwindled. He doesn’t even advertise anymore. “I believe the bison industry is on good, firm footing,” said Hanson, who slaughters about 20 head a year. “It’s accepted in the public eye as a food animal.”
Prices climb Bison are sold at restaurants and supermarkets across the country, including Fred Meyer — a national retailer with about 130 stores. Spokesperson Melinda Merrill said the retail chain has stocked bison meat since about 2005, selling the ground product yearround and other cuts four or five times a year. If anything, she said the demand has steadily increased, even as prices have climbed. A couple years ago, ground bison cost about $5 a pound. It now costs $7 to $8 a pound in the retail marketplace.

One store chain, Dollar General, has made its shelf height taller.
Aisle piles designed for more purchasing Clutter makes you shop, stores believe By Stephanie Clifford The New York Times
NEW YORK — Americans like stuff. That’s a given. But it turns out that lots and lots of stuff piled onto shelves or stacked in the middle of store aisles can coax a shopper to buy more. After the recessionary years of shedding inventory and clearing store lanes for a cleaner, appealing look, retailers are reversing course and redesigning their spaces to add clutter. Dollar General is raising the height of its standard shelves to more than six feet. J. C. Penney is turning its empty walls into jewelry and accessory displays. Old Navy is adding lanes lined with items like water bottles, candy and lunchboxes. Best Buy is testing wheeling in bigger items, like Segways and bicycles, to suck up the space created by thinner TVs and smaller speakers. Wal-Mart Stores may provide the marquee example of a failed makeover. Two years ago, it remodeled, trying to hang on to Target shoppers who traded down to Wal-Mart during the recession. Out went the pallets of items like juice boxes or sweatshirts stacked in the centers of aisles. Merchandise on “end caps,” displays at the ends of aisles, slimmed down. Shelves got shorter, and Wal-Mart whittled the num-

So after remodeling a large percentage of its stores, Wal-Mart is now reremodeling them, adding back inventory, plopping stacks of stuff into aisles and stacking shelves with a dizzying array of merchandise. As it turns out, the messier and more confusing a store looks, the better the deals it projects. “Historically, the more a store is packed, the more people think of it as value — just as when you walk into a store and there are fewer things on the floor, you tend to think they’re expensive,” said Paco Underhill, founder and chief executive of Envirosell, who studies shopper behavior. Retailers are crowding shelves for a couple of strategic reasons. After years of expansion, many retailers are halting building plans and closing stores as sales and traffic shift to the Web. That means the main way to increase revenue is by selling more stuff at the existing stores. “All the retailers are stuck with less traffic going

to the stores, and leases that are 15 to 20 years long,” said Fiona Dias, executive vice president of strategy and marketing at GSI Commerce, which provides e-commerce technology for retailers like Toys “R” Us. “What do you do with all the extra space that you’re paying for?” Also, same-store sales are getting stronger, so retailers are adding back merchandise. At Wal-Mart, for instance, inventory at the end of January was 11 percent higher than a year earlier. Best Buy, which had big stores to begin with, recently was faced with “bowling alleys’ worth of space because the product has all shrunk or gone digital,” Dias said, noting the switchover to music sold on MP3s rather than racks and racks of CDs. J. C. Penney is also trying to maximize its existing spaces. Old Navy has added “fast lanes” where shoppers can pick up Nantucket Nectars, toys and other impulse items. About 100 stores now have the lanes, and about 200 more are being added this year. It is meant to maximize sales per square foot around the checkout area, a spokeswoman, Louise Callagy, said in an email, especially important as many Old Navys have been or will be remodeled into smaller spaces.

Despite those ratings, Wal-Mart has been encountering one of the longest slides in domestic samestore sales in its history. “They loved the experience,” William S.

VICTORIA — Seaplane operators in Victoria Harbour want to build a new floating terminal. The $3.5 million project would marry the operations of three airlines. B.C.’s Harbour Air Seaplanes and Westcoast Air (owned by Harbour Air), and Washington state’s Kenmore Air. They are aiming to build a 3,600-square-foot Victoria Seaplane Terminal for international and domestic flights. New docks would reach 25 metres past the moorage at Harbour Air and Westcoast Air’s 950 Wharf St. location, across Inner Harbour from the MV Coho ferry terminal. Kenmore would move from its spot next to the Victoria Regent Hotel, which is farther north toward the Johnson Street bridge. Upgrading the terminal would not translate into more flights. And fares would not increase as a result of capital costs, said Randy Wright, senior vice president of Harbour Air and Westcoast Air.

Corn reserves low ST. LOUIS — Rising demand for corn from ethanol producers is pushing U.S. reserves to the lowest point in 15 years, a trend that could lead to higher grain and food prices this year. The Agriculture Department on Friday left its estimate for corn reserves unchanged from the previous month. The reserves are projected to fall to 675 million bushels in late August, when the harvest begins, or roughly 5 percent of all corn consumed in the United States. That would be the lowest surplus level since 1996.
Portugal hurting GODOLLO, Hungary — Europe’s top financial officials said Friday that Portugal will need around $114 billion in rescue loans, but a tense election campaign in the debt-ridden country is set to complicate reaching a deal with opposing political parties. A full-fledged adjustment program should be in place by mid-May, allowing Portugal to meet huge bond repayments in June, EU Monetary Affairs Commissioner Olli Rehn said.

IRS whistleblower wins $4.5 million Accountant alerts agency about lapse The Associated Press
Seattle Mariners designated hitter Jack Cust, shown hitting a home run during spring training, is one player who wants to use tobacco products.
Seattle pitches in for ban on tobacco Peninsula Daily News news services
SEATTLE — If health officials and Major League Baseball prevail, this might be the last season a professional baseball player will be on the field with a wad of tobacco in his cheek. Health officials from 15 cities — including Seattle — signed a letter late last month to Bud Selig, Major League Baseball commissioner, and Michael Weiner, executive director of the Major League Baseball Players Association, calling for a ban on players and coaches using tobacco products during Major League baseball games. Selig said he supported the prohibition. To make the ban happen, the players association would have to consent to the restrictions in the collective-bargaining agreement that will go into effect in December. Negotiations are going on now. Mariners who use tobacco have mixed feelings about making it off-limits. “There are a lot of guys that chew,” said designated hitter Jack Cust, who chews in-season. “We’re all grown adults, so I don’t see why we can’t do what other grown adults do.” Another player, who requested that his name not be used because he doesn’t want

‘Role models’ “Tobacco use in this country is the leading preventable cause of death,” Fleming said. “Our children start using tobacco in their most vulnerable years and look up to baseball players as role models.” Smokeless tobacco comes in the form of chewing tobacco or snuff. Chewing tobacco is coarse and placed between the cheek and gum, while snuff is a fine-grain tobacco set between the lower lip and gum. Smokeless tobacco contains nicotine, which is addictive, and can cause oral cancer, pancreatic cancer and gum disease, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It has been shut out of the minor leagues since 1993.

The accountant filed a complaint with the IRS in 2007, just as the IRS Whistleblower Office opened, but heard nothing for two years. Frustrated, he hired Young to help push the issue. “We were able to help him get it back on track,” Young said. In the accountant’s case, the IRS did not deem the issues he raised complex. But the agency said the information he shared pointed out new questions for a routine IRS audit that was already under way. The Whistleblower Office received nearly 1,000 tips involving more than 3,000 taxpayers in fiscal years 2008 and 2009, according to its annual reports to Congress.

PHILADELPHIA — An in-house accountant who raised a red flag about a tax lapse that his employer then ignored, leading him to tip off the IRS, has received $4.5 million in the first IRS whistleblower award. The accountant’s tip netted the IRS $20 million in taxes and interest from the errant financial-services firm. The award represents a 22 percent cut of the taxes recovered. The program, designed to encourage tips in large-scale cases, mandates awards of 15 to 30 percent of the amount recouped. “It ought to encourage a lot of other people to squeal,” Sen. Charles Grassley told

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL ECONOMY! 065087458
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A bill is proceeding through the California Legislature that, if passed, would require economic impact studies — like environmental impact studies — before giant stores like Walmart are approved for construction. The measure was adopted last week by the Senate Governance and Finance Committee on a 6-3 partisan vote. It would require new superstores to prepare economic impact analyses as part of the permit process anywhere in California. Local agencies would still have the authority to approve the projects regardless of what the analysis finds. The legislation carried by Sen. Juan Vargas, D-San Diego, now goes to the Senate Environmental Quality Committee for a possible hearing in early May. Vargas says supercenter jobs pay so little that some workers must rely on government programs, such as health care and free school lunches, costing taxpayers. Walmart dismisses those accusations, bringing out its own studies. Walmart says it provides jobs at fair wages while offering an affordable place to shop.
his children to know he chews, said he hopes MLB gets the ban imposed. “I wish they would because then it would give me a reason to stop doing it,” he said. The officials who signed the March 28 letter, including Dr. David Fleming, director of Public Health — Seattle & King County, said they want to prohibit tobacco for the health of the players as well as “the millions of young people who watch baseball at the ballparks and on TV.”

The Associated Press. The Iowa Republican helped get the IRS Whistleblower Office authorized in 2006. The IRS mailed the accountant’s lawyer a $3.24 million check that arrived in suburban Philadelphia by first-class mail Thursday. The sum represents the award minus a 28 percent tax hit. The lawyer, Eric L. Young of Blue Bell, won’t release the name of his client or the firm because his client remains a small-town accountant and hopes to continue to work in his field. “It’s a win-win for both the government and taxpayers — these are dollars that are being returned to the Treasury that otherwise wouldn’t be,” Young said. “It’s very difficult to be a whistleblower,” said Young, who has represented more than a dozen such tipsters, including one in a $2 billion Pfizer case involving offlabel drug marketing. “Most people would be

The Last Word in Astrology BY EUGENIA LAST
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Emotional problems will broadside you, causing upset and disputes. It’s important to give whoever you are dealing with a chance to explain and to have an equal share in finding a reasonable solution. Not everyone will do things the same way. 2 stars
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Keep your true feelings to yourself and concentrate on accomplishment. A challenge will be beneficial. A physical activity, educational event or interaction with someone with more experience will get you pumped up and ready to take on a new project. 3 stars
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Put a little time, effort and money into your well-being and overall appearance and attitude. A little pampering will go a long way. Enjoy the comfort of your home and the company of the ones you love. 3 stars CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Before you criticize others, remember your past mistakes. Giving positive advice will enable you to have greater input and control over a situation with the potential to escalate quickly. Now is not the time to disagree just for the sake of being right. 2 stars
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t let restlessness lead to divulging information that you are supposed to keep a secret. Get involved in community events that allow you to make new friends. Don’t mess with authority figures or institutions. 4 stars
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Attend social events. Your strong opinions and your intellect will capture interest. Don’t contribute financially to a deal, but certainly listen to what’s being offered. Avoid taking on someone else’s burden; concentrate on your own goals. 4 stars
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t rely on people from your past to come through for you now. An old debt will leave you in an awkward position. Focus on important partnerships and what’s required to make them work better. Don’t let an old flame leave you confused. 3 stars
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Emotional matters will escalate if you don’t control the situation early. Take your time if you are put in a position that requires you to make a personal decision that will affect your emotional well-being and current residence. 2 stars
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Making extra cash should be on your mind. Use your imagination and don’t be afraid to offer a skill, talent or service you feel others can benefit from. Get advice from someone with experience and you’ll be able to stabilize your financial situation. 3 stars
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your emotions will be difficult to control but, if you respond to them with displays of affection, you might bypass a verbal explosion. A negative attitude will bring a poor response. Look at the positive side of any situation you face. 3 stars
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Social events, networking or spending quality time with loved ones will all lead to greater creativity, vision and insight into your future. Change heading your way will play an important role in your attitude and the goals you set. 5 stars
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Put your heart on the line and let the people you care about know how you feel. Don’t let an old partner or enemy stifle your plans or cause you to stay away from an event or reunion you want to attend. 5 stars

Readers tell woman to trust gut JULIE AND RYAN met in junior high, but they didn’t begin to date until they had both been twice married and divorced. There was so much Julie loved about Ryan — she thought he was the one — but there was one thing that was holding her back. She didn’t trust him. Ryan had admitted he had cheated on his wives, so Julie was on her guard. When he started telling little white lies, she began to doubt him. Finally, she broke up with him. Julie asked us what we thought . . .

Future Student follows path quickly opening up to more women
By Diane Urbani for
Paz/for Peninsula Woman
Vanesa Stoken, a student in Peninsula College’s composites program, says the composites fabrication trade is ideal for women.
PORT ANGELES — Vanesa Prince Stoken took a chance on a wholly unfamiliar course — and found her path forward. Ask her to explain composites, the program she began last fall quarter at Peninsula College, and she turns to a counterpart from about 70 years ago: Rosie the Riveter. That “We Can Do It!” poster, showing the red-kerchiefed World War II factory worker flexing her muscles, is one of Stoken’s favorite pieces of artwork. She’s a 21st-century version of the riveter with the rolled-up sleeve — updated on many levels. At the North Olympic Peninsula Skills Center, Stoken is learning to build ultra-lightweight equipment, from surfboards to windmills for wind energy farms, with fiberglass. The technology she’s mastering will enable her to find work with Port Angeles operations such as Westport Shipyard and Angeles Composites Technology Inc., aka ACTI, where a newly awarded contract with Bombardier Aerospace will mean 50 added jobs over the coming year. Students in the composites program may also choose to take their Peninsula College degrees and travel. The standards are universal in this trade, says Dan Sweetser, Stoken’s instructor at the skills center. “Composites are the wave of the future,” he believes. “You can move around, and do this in another state or country.” Turn

‘Pizza, Pop and Power Tools’ By Diane Urbani for
PORT ANGELES — Middleschool-age girls can take part this Saturday in an event Peninsula College has designed especially for them. Titled “Pizza, Pop and Power Tools,” it’s an introduction to the world of construction — as a career path, a good livelihood and a field that today is as open to women as it is to their brothers. The program from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the North Olympic Peninsula Skills Center, 905 W. Ninth St., will include games, the building of wooden CD racks for the girls to take home, and conversation with local women in the construction trades. Among those women is Vanesa Prince Stoken, a Peninsula College student who works in the composites laboratory at the North Olympic Peninsula Skills Center. Stoken, 26, is earning an associate of applied science degree and hopes to find work with a manufacturer such as Angeles Composites Technology Inc., or ACTI. Along with the composite technology program, the campus offers welding and woodworking-homebuilding classes, including carpentry and “green construction.” Anne Grasteit, coordinator of the $5,000 federal Perkins NonTraditional Employment Grant that funds “Pizza, Pop and Power Tools,” said the building trades are “hurting for young people,” including women. “What’s exciting to me,” she said, “is that today’s girls have a choice. When I was in school, you could be a teacher, a nurse or a homemaker . . . Girls couldn’t even take shop [classes]. Now girls can do anything.” Saturday’s event includes a pizza and soda pop lunch and gift bags for the participants. The food and extras have been donated by local businesses, Grasteit said. To sign up for “Pizza, Pop and Power Tools,” which is limited to 20 seventh- and eighth-grade girls, phone Grasteit at 360-6815127 or email agrasteit@pencol. edu. Find more information at www.PenCol.edu or 360-452-9277.

Stoken is the daughter of retired U.S. Air Force Tech. Sgt. Mark Prince, whose nickname while in the service was “soldier monkey.” She spent her first 12 years with him in Las Vegas; after he retired and Stoken’s parents split up, her father moved his daughter to Sequim, where she could finish growing up with family members nearby. During her teen years, Stoken’s grandmother, Patricia “Pat” Prince, taught her plenty, including how to quilt and sew.

“I spent my life savings, when I was a teenager, on fabric for quilts,” she recalls. And these days, Stoken sees the similarities between her new trade and the old craft. “Fiberglass is woven glass; it’s fabric,” she says. With her knowledge of textiles, “I’m able to naturally get the hang of it.”
Sue Stone, of Aloha, Oregon, and Robin Winston Gay and Carl Gay, both of Port Angeles, are delighted to announce the engagement of their children, Sabrina Marie Veal and Samuel Joseph Robert Gay, and that their wedding ceremony will take place in Forest Grove, Oregon, during Memorial Day Weekend.

composites workshop is not an issue, Stoken says — but then again, perhaps it is in a positive way. With her working beside them, “the guys are respectful. It keeps everybody more on the level,” she says. “Some of the high school students will start to say something, and then they will think about it,” and skip it. The variety of people in the course “keeps everybody pretty well-rounded,” she says. Sweetser meantime, makes his classroom as much like a factory as possible, with music, a coffee machine and a professional atmosphere.
During the interview process, she met with the Department of Corrections psychologist, who told her, “You really should go to college.” Money, as in the shortage of it, was a barrier. But Stoken applied for and received a Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant to cover tuition and books for her first year of school; she’s seeking other financial aid to cover the second year. “I’m good with very little money,” she says. “But I may have to take a break and work,” after finishing this first year. Stoken and her husband, Travis, who works for his father Norm Stoken’s logging company in Sequim, are “staying steady,” financially. “But that’s not getting ahead,” and she’d like to have some savings.

This week’s question: Do you feel children should be sheltered (kept unaware of) the suffering in our world?
“I think they should be sheltered, if possible. They should be children while they can. They’ll have to deal with the big stuff soon enough. “Kids may ask questions when they see or hear something. I guess I’d let them watch TV if they want. I think I’d give them a choice when it’s something that can be troublesome to them.”
Sandie Lindberg, 64 office manager Port Angeles
“I don’t think they should. The parents can use it as a teaching moment to let them know what’s happening in other parts of our world. “Perhaps it may even make the children more compassionate for others when they see how others can and do suffer. They do need to see what other people experience, whether good or bad.”
Leslie Anderson, 47 college administrative assistant Port Angeles
“I guess a reasonable amount. Let the parents be the judge. I don’t want them to watch violence and sex, as they shouldn’t be a part of a young child’s reality. “I really don’t think kids should watch much news. The news is not always true, especially the war segments. It could affect kids. I don’t like man’s inhumanity to man, and young kids should be sheltered from it.” Veronica Skilbeck, 28 massage therapist Brinnon

Request for dinner date offends widow DEAR JOHN: MY husband died two years ago. Recently, I met a man who asked me out to dinner. He’s a very nice, very attractive gentleman. I’m certain he has a good heart, but I felt a little offended that he would even ask. Why is that? And do you think that I should call him and say that going out for dinner is OK? — So Confused in Lubbock, Texas Dear Confused: It’s perfectly natural to react the way that you did. When you’ve lost a spouse, even the thought of a new relationship can cause you pain. And that is what you’re thinking might be the case here. There is a good chance that you feeling offended by his invitation — coupled with the attraction you feel for him — has impinged on the pain that you still feel over the loss of your husband. But if your roles were reversed and your husband had been left by your death, what would you want him to do? I suspect that you would want him to live his life. You should call him back and explain why this is difficult for you. If this gentleman has the good heart you think he does, he’ll understand why this is difficult for you, and he’ll respect your wishes. Dear John: I’m a 16-year-old girl. I’m really good friends with “Jeff,” a guy who is also 16. We’ve known each other for about two months now. We both like each other and talk on the phone every

night. Jeff lives in another state, and we never get to see each other. One night when we were talking, he told me that he loved me. It took me about a week to tell him that I loved him, too. How do I know if my feelings toward him are real? Can two teens really fall in love at this age? — Wild About Him in Lincoln, Neb. Dear Wild: After puberty, sexual attraction and love are possible at almost any age. Few people, however, have found that early relationships can stand the test of time. Why? Because love is constantly being tested in a variety of situations. For example, we may find out that our interests differ too greatly. Or one partner may be too possessive of the other’s friendships. Or we may be attracted to others overtime. There’s no denying our feelings or the demands of our hearts. But as you said, you’re very young and live far apart. Nothing is impossible if it is desired and shared deeply. But remember there is no need to rush. If it turns out that your bond continues to hold strong, you may indeed stay close. For now, simply take it one day at a time. Dear John: My husband, “Mike,” recently joined a gym and goes after
work. The gym has an indoor pool, and Mike enjoys swimming there for a couple of hours on several evenings per week. I went to meet him there last night, so we could go out to dinner when he finished his swim. When I walked into the pool, I found him with several women. And he seemed to be flirting with them. One had her legs around him, and they jumped into the pool together. When he got out of the water, he ran to a second girl, and they did the same thing. I couldn’t believe my eyes and walked away before he saw me. Later when I told him what I had seen, he acted angry and hurt. He insisted that I was overreacting and didn’t trust him. I think a married man acting this way with some girl who isn’t his wife is going a bit too far. What do you think? — Am I in Over My Head? in Charlotte, N.C. Dear Over My Head: It’s going too far when your behavior hurts your partner. In that regard, I’d say Mike was the one whose behavior was out of bounds. If he thinks he has you believing he’s not being a flirt, he’s the one that’s in over his head. Give him a clear understanding of what he has to lose if this type of behavior continues. He is putting the relationship you have built together at risk. Let him think about that the next time he goes for a dip.
