PenPly mill to be torn down Resurrection plan fails as Port of PA regains site BY PAUL GOTTLIEB PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — The Port of Port Angeles took back full control Tuesday of a parcel under lease to Peninsula Plywood with every intention of tearing down the 60-year-old mill and installing businesses at the site that focus

on marine trades, port officials said. PenPly President Josh Renshaw said Tuesday he had not found a buyer for the debt-plagued, 22-month-old business on Marine Drive — a venture heavily financed with public money. He turned the keys to the facility over to the port at about 3 p.m.,

December, the mill had 14 days to find new ownership or vacate the premises. “The agreement stipulates that [Tuesday] at the close of Renshaw business, the site reverts to the port,” Robb said earlier Tuesday. The mill, which sits on a 19-acre downtown waterfront par-

a port official said. Renshaw also said that the company would not have the money to pay city utility bills or port back rent. “The company is dissolving,” he said Monday as he cleaned out his office. “We were trying to attract new money in to take it over, but we couldn’t quite put it together.” Said Jeff Robb, the port’s executive director: “The lease is basically null and void.” Under an agreement that PenPly signed with the port in early

cel, shut down as Kply in November 2007 and reopened as Peninsula Plywood on March 1, 2010. Renshaw, Kply’s former sales manager, spearheaded the effort to restart the mill as Peninsula Plywood — the name the mill had when it first opened in 1941. He marshaled city, county and state officials to gain funding for the mill, while PenPly’s investors provided $700,000 to receive a $1 million state Department of Commerce loan. TURN



Two held in probe of mail theft

Someone stole

Witnesses say they saw pair rummaging through PA mailboxes BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — Two women were in custody Tuesday for investigation of mail theft, after a string of disappearances of holiday cards, packages and other mail from both Port Angeles and unincorporated areas had been reported. Jennifer R. Leroy, 32, and Holly E. Baker, 40, both of Port Angeles, were booked into the Clallam County jail Monday for investigation of possession of stolen property, attempted theft and criminal trespass, said Brian Smith, Port Angeles assistant chief of police. Their capture is mostly due to “good oldfashioned community involvement,” Smith said. Community members went beyond just calling in, he said. KEITH THORPE/PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

Friends rally around family hit by death, burglary BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — Friends and family of a Port Angeles woman hope to return some Christmas cheer to a family devastated by both a death and a burglary. Nikki Kovatch Morris, 30, was hit by a pair of devastating

events last weekend. Her fiancee, the father of her 1-year-old son, died when his car plunged 40 feet into a gravel pit shortly after 3 p.m. Bryan Casey Hughes, 27, died shortly after he was discovered at the scene off Mount Pleasant Road, about a mile south of U.S. Highway 101.

Butler OK after surfing accident GERARD BUTLER IS OK after being held underwater by some big waves while filming for a movie about a surfer at Mavericks, a famed Northern California surf break known for treacherous, stories-high waves. Filmmakers were shooting the 42-year-old “Of Men and Mavericks” star paddling Butler out with competitive surfers Greg Long, Zach Wormhoudt and Peter Mel on Sunday afternoon, the San Mateo County Times reported. The four were steering clear of a set of waves in the 15-foot range when a much larger set broke in front of them, said Wormhoudt of Santa Cruz. Butler was held underwater for two waves and washed through some rocks while tethered to his surfboard, Wormhoudt said. A safety patrolman on a Jet Ski swooped in and picked up the actor. Butler was shaken up but not seriously injured,

False reports of the musician’s death spread online after a fake news release surfaced on social media sites. The sign reads, “Heaven looks a lot like New Jersey” with the date and time. Wormhoudt said. He was taken by ambulance to Stanford Medical Center for examination and was later released. Wormhoudt said Butler had not surfed much before the movie but had made an effort to improve his surfing and water skills for the film. The group had talked about what to do if they got

Ms. Ekvall was crowned Ms. Ekvall Miss Venezuela at age 17 in 2000, and the following year she was third runner-up in the Miss Universe pageant in Puerto Rico. She went on to work as a model, actress and television news anchor. She also authored a book, Fuera de Foco (“Out of Focus”), about her struggle with cancer, which included images by Venezuelan photographer Roberto Mata.

Mr. Frazer was steadily employed on television from the 1950s into the ’90s, in both Mr. Frazer dramas and sitcoms, including “The Phil Silvers Show,” “Car 54, Where Are You?,” “Route 66,” “The Untouchables,” “The F.B.I.,” “Barney Miller” and “Law & Order.” He had roles in a halfdozen films, including “Lilies of the Field” in 1963.

NIH requests limit on lab-bred bird flu details BY LAURAN NEERGAARD THE ASSOCIATED PRESS




Kevin Wesson shovels a path for customers at the Water Still on Tuesday morning after an overnight storm

Snow makes travel tough on Great Plains TOPEKA, Kan. — A deadly storm that halted travel throughout the Great Plains weakened Tuesday as it headed east into Missouri and toward the Great Lakes, and officials reopened interstates in areas where motorists had been forced to adjust holiday plans mid-trip. Authorities still were reporting snow drifts of up to 10 feet high in southeast Colorado, and Texas officials warned drivers to stay off the road in the Panhandle so crews would have a clear path to remove ice and snow. Major highways in the western half of the Oklahoma Panhandle remained closed. The storm dumped as much as 15 inches of snow as it hit parts of five states.

Paroled American home NEW YORK — Lori Berenson, a New Yorker paroled from a Peruvian prison after 15 years

behind bars for aiding a leftist revolutionary group, arrived in the U.S. on Tuesday for her first visit home since her arrest in 1995. Now 42, Berenson, was arrested at age 26 and accused of helping plot an armed takeover of Peru’s Congress, which she had entered by saying she was a journalist. The attack never took place. She admitted helping the Tupac Amaru rebel group rent a safe house where authorities seized a cache of weapons after a shootout. But she insisted she didn’t know guns were stored there and never joined the group. Berenson was convicted of being an accomplice to terrorism. She won early release last year from her 20-year prison sentence. She needed Peruvian court approval to spend the holidays with her family in New York City and must return by Jan. 11. By law, she must remain in Peru until her full sentence lapses unless the country’s president decides to commute it. The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The U.S. government asked scientists Tuesday not to reveal all the details of how to make a version of the deadly bird flu that they created in labs in the U.S. and Europe. The lab-bred virus, being kept under high security, appears to spread more easily among mammals. That’s fueled worry that publishing a blueprint could aid terrorists in creating a biological weapon, the National Institutes of Health said. But the NIH said it was important for the overall findings to be published in scientific journals, because they suggest it may be easier than previously thought for bird flu to mutate on its own and become a greater threat. “It’s very important research,” NIH science policy director Dr. Amy Patterson told The Associated Press. “As this virus evolves in nature, we want to be able to rapidly detect . . . mutations that may indicate that the virus is getting closer to a form that could cross species lines more readily.”

Bird flu, known formally as H5N1 avian influenza, occasionally infects people who have close contact with infected poultry, particularly in parts of Asia. It is highly deadly when it does infect people because it’s different from typical human flu bugs. The concern is that one day it may begin spreading easily between people. The NIH paid for two research projects, at the Erasmus University Medical Center in the Netherlands and at the University of Wisconsin, to better understand what might fuel the virus’ ability to spread. The NIH said researchers genetically engineered bird flu that could spread easily among ferrets — animals whose response to influenza is similar to humans. So the government’s biosecurity advisers — the National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity — reviewed the research as it was submitted to two scientific journals, Science and Nature. Following the board’s recommendation, the Department of Health and Human Services asked the researchers and journal editors not publish the full genetic information that could enable

someone to copy the work. Patterson said publishing the general findings, however, could help scientists better monitor bird flu’s natural evolution and spur further research into new treatments. The government will set up a way for scientists who are pursuing such work to be given the unpublished genetic details, she said. Patterson said researchers were making changes in their scientific reports. But in a statement, Science Editor-in-Chief Dr. Bruce Alberts said his journal “has concerns about withholding potentially important public health information from responsible influenza researchers” and was evaluating how best to proceed. Nature’s editor-in-chief, Dr. Philip Campbell, called the recommendations unprecedented. “It is essential for public health that the full details of any scientific analysis of flu viruses be available to researchers,” he said in a statement. The journal is discussing how “appropriate access to the scientific methods and data could be enabled.”

Briefly: World Egyptian women protest abuse by military CAIRO — Thousands of Egyptian women marched in the streets of Cairo on Tuesday, protesting abuse by soldiers who dragged women by the hair, stomped on them and stripped one half naked on the street while cracking down on anti-military protesters in scenes that shocked many in the conservative society. The march was a rare protest by women and its numbers — about 10,000 by some estimates — underlined the depth of anger over the images from the fierce crackdown over the past five days on protesters demanding the ruling military step down immediately. Even before the protest was over, the ruling military council issued an unusual apology for what it called “violations” — a quick turnaround after days of dismissing the significance of the abuse.

Charge denied BAGHDAD — Iraq’s Sunni vice president denied Shiite accusations that he organized death squads, describing the charges Tuesday as a trumpedup case brought only after the departure of U.S. troops about assassinations allegedly commit-

ted five years ago. The arrest warrant issued against the highest-ranking Sunni politician threatens to tear apart Iraq’s coalition government and perhaps kick-start another Sunni insurgency. It raised suspicions that Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, a Shiite, ordered the arrest of Vice President Tariq al-Hashemi as part of a campaign to consolidate his hold on power out of a fear that Sunnis in and out of Iraq are plotting against him. Kurdish leaders were trying to work out a solution, sheltering al-Hashemi from arrest in their semiautonomous region in northern Iraq.

150 die in 2 days BEIRUT — Security forces pursuing anti-government activists and army defectors shot dead at least 47 people in Syria on Tuesday, pushing the toll for two days of violence to nearly 150 even as the regime prepared to allow in foreign monitors under an Arab League plan aimed at stopping the bloodshed. Activist groups said about 100 people were killed Monday, the same day Syria agreed to the monitors after weeks of stalling. About 70 of the dead were said to be army defectors. The groups said Tuesday’s toll was at least 47 and possibly as high as 62. The Associated Press


A police helicopter lands on the southbound lanes of Interstate 287 in Harding Township, N.J., where a small plane headed for Georgia crashed

Small plane crashes on busy NYC-area highway; 5 killed THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

HARDING, N.J. — A small plane headed for Georgia crashed Tuesday on one of the New York City area’s busiest highways, spiraling out of control and losing a section of the aircraft before hitting the wooded median strip, skidding into the roadway and exploding. All five people aboard were killed, but no one on the ground was injured. The New York investment banking firm Greenhill & Co. said two of its managing directors, Jeffrey Buckalew, 45, and Rakesh Chawla, 36, as well as Buckalew’s wife and two children, were on the

plane that crashed on Interstate 287. Buckalew was the registered owner of the single-engine plane and had a pilot’s license. Wreckage was scattered over at least a half-mile-wide area, with a section found lodged in a tree of a home about a quarter-mile away, near a highway entrance ramp. Helicopter footage from News 12 New Jersey showed charred wreckage stretching across the median and the highway, a heavily used route that wraps around the northern and western edges of the New York City area. A huge ball of charred metal sat in the middle of the northbound

lanes. Both sides of the highway were shut down. Law enforcement officials and firefighters searched the woods in the median Tuesday afternoon. The Federal Aviation Administration said the Socata TBM-700 turboprop had departed from nearby Teterboro Airport in New Jersey when it disappeared from radar. It was headed for DeKalb Peachtree Airport near Atlanta. FAA spokesman Jim Peters said the pilot had requested clearance to a higher altitude. He said that garbled transmission followed, and that the plane then dropped off radar.

WINTER OFFICIALLY ARRIVES on the North Olympic Peninsula at 9:31 p.m. tonight, the instant the Northern Hemisphere reaches the winter solstice. Depending on the shift of the calendar, the winter solstice occurs above the equator between Dec. 20 and 23 each year. Because the solstice reaches Greenwich Mean Time in England at 5:31 a.m. on Dec. 22, many calendars show Thursday as the first day of winter — the so-called shortest day of the year because of the minimum daylight. Conversely, tonight marks the summer solstice south of the equator. People there will experience their longest daylight period of the year.

NORTH KOREA’S ANOINTED heir Kim Jong Un led a solemn procession of mourners Tuesday to the glass coffin of his father and longtime ruler — a strong indication that a smooth leadership transition was under way in the country known for secrecy and unpredictability. The announcement Monday of Kim Jong Il’s death over the weekend raised acute worries in the region over the possibility of a power struggle between the untested son and rivals in an impoverished and reclusive country with a nuclear program. But there have been no signs of unrest or discord in Pyongyang.

THE GOVERNMENT SHIPPED more than 400 coffins to two floodstricken cities in the southern Philippines on Tuesday as the death toll neared 1,000 and a state of national calamity was declared. The latest count listed 957 dead and 49 missing and is expected to climb further as additional bodies are recovered from the sea and mud in Iligan and Cagayan de Oro cities. A handful of morgues are overwhelmed and running out of coffins and formaldehyde for embalming. Aid workers appealed for bottled water, blankets, tents and clothes for many of 45,000 in evacuation centers.

In addition, it cost about $350,000 a week to operate the mill, about $170,000 of which was spent on veneer alone. But the company itself was also at fault, Renshaw said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We tied up capital by not controlling inventory enough,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the one thing I think is most unforgiveable,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not really any good reason we could not have done that better. That was a substantial mistake.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the second time in


The Peninsula Plywood mill, first opened in 1941, sits idle Tuesday as it was handed back to landlord, Port of Port Angeles. five years that the port has taken back possession of the plywood millâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s premises. In 2008, the port took possession from Klukwan Inc. of Alaska, which operated the mill as KPly until it closed in November 2007, when 132 people lost their jobs.

Next step for Renshaw Renshaw said it would be up to him and the other company board members â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Grant Munro, Wilmer Possinger Jr., Bob Parke and Eric Flodstrom, all of Port Angeles â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to decide if the company will file for bankruptcy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure what the right thing to do would be,â&#x20AC;? Renshaw said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;First, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to get this thing wound down and then figure out what we

need to do.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The assumption is that the assets wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cover anything more than the secured creditors,â&#x20AC;? Renshaw said Monday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are in default to the banks. They are moving forward with the sale of the assets now.â&#x20AC;? Renshaw said three creditors will be paid first with the proceeds from those sales: Sound Community Bank, the state Department of Commerce and Enterprise Cascadia, a nonprofit community development financial institution, in that order.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Five of seven were missing their baby Jesus,â&#x20AC;? Russell said. Russel said she spoke to the other Nativity set owners, each of whom said the thefts are an annual occurrence, and are often accompanied by the remaining pieces being moved into sexual positions. Wilson and Russell called the Port Angeles Police Department to report the thefts.

They said they were impressed that an officer was dispatched to their homes instead of taking their reports over the phone. The officer was professional, they agreed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how he kept a straight face,â&#x20AC;? Wilson said, acknowledging the humor in the idea of a baby Jesus theft ring. As of Tuesday, police had no leads in the disappearance of the baby Jesuses. The Nativities can be expensive, since it often is

difficult to replace missing parts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They stopped making the glow molds in the 1990s, and you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just buy a new piece,â&#x20AC;? Russell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had to go on eBay to buy used pieces at about $50 each.â&#x20AC;? Russellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s husband had just finished building a stable for the set and added hay to complete the scene. Since the theft, the Russells have brought the remnants of the plastic set inside.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;My husband and I are fed up,â&#x20AC;? she said. This happened just as their 3-year-old son reached the age where he is beginning to understand Christmas, she said. She said they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be forced to display their outdoor set indoors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just want to be able to share our faith,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Christmas is time for a quiz about Claus WHY DOES SANTA wear a red suit? When did reindeer replace horses pulling Santa’s sleigh? And why did they all move to the North Pole? These were a few of the questions that Santa Claus addressed at the December meeting of the Port Townsend Yacht Club. Santa — who is known to his fellow club members as Vince — dropped in to give a brief history of St. Nicholas, then challenged the audience to a quiz on Christmas traditions and when they first started. For example, a Christmas tradition that predates carol singing is the creche, or stable Nativity scene, which St. Francis of Assisi introduced in the 13th century. Caroling came into fashion shortly afterwards, but it wasn’t until the American Civil War that the custom of sending Christmas cards began, Vince said. The most surprising statement (which came from The Autobiography of Santa Claus by Jeff Guinn): Santa and the reindeer have lived at the North Pole since 1913. No one knows exactly why they moved to the frozen north, Vince said, or from where, but a website sponsored by Mayflower, www.yourlifeonthemove. com, offers some theories. My favorite: The North Pole is on top of the world, so Santa has a bird’s-eye view of all the children and can see who’s been naughty and nice. The red suit could have been designed to stand out in the snow, but the reason Santa wears red goes back to St. Nicholas. Known for giving gifts of money, food and clothing to those in need, Nicholas was elected bishop of Nicea in 302 A.D., and bishops wore red robes. But it wasn’t until Clement C. Moore wrote “A Visit from Saint Nicholas” in 1822 that flying reindeer became the draft animal of choice.

3 percent electricity rate hike gets approval by Clallam PUD


Santa holds a poster that shows how the jolly elf can be in more than one place at the same time. The poster Santa is Ed Murphy, who mentored the Santa in this picture — a Port Townsend Yacht Club member who is known to fellow club members as Vince. Another carried a sign that stated “All this is the result of Santaism.” Seems that Seattle is one of many cities that hold SantaCons, with groups of people donning Santa suits and walking the city streets to promote holiday spirits as well as downing some. The idea originated in San Francisco with a group who called it Santarchy. SantaCon has rules, however: Participants must be in full suit and beard, not just a Santa hat, or dressed as one of Santa’s helpers. The first group of helpers we saw had on short red “skater” skirts and tops, although one snow belle had on a white skirt, sparkly top and white platform heels. On the www.santacon. info/Seattle-WA website, walking shoes were recommended, as participants were gathering in different locations and making their way through the streets to meet up. A bullhorn was also recommended to keep Santa’s

cortege in line, probably something that was more difficult to accomplish as the day progressed. The underlying credo of SantaCon: Sometimes it’s nice to be naughty.

Food Bank Santa Bob Rosen, manager of the Quilcene Community Center, called to say that Mike Kavanagh, the food bank’s personal Santa, had just dropped off another pickup load of groceries. Kavanagh, a landscaper who lives in Poulsbo, goes to Costco and buys staples — flour, rice, beans — and delivers them to the food bank several times a year. In a phone interview, Kavanagh said he started making the deliveries about three years ago. He was driving over to the Olympics, where he goes hunting and fishing. Passing through Quilcene, he saw a sign on the community center reader board announcing a food drive. Since he was coming back the next week, Kava-

nagh decided to bring a bag of groceries to contribute to the food bank. “When I went in there, I saw that their shelves were practically bare,” Kavanagh said. “They only had some dented cans of tomato sauce, a few bags of onions and some potatoes. “A couple of weeks later, I went to Costco and filled up the truck.” Since then, Kavanagh has delivered a pickup load of food to the Quilcene Community Center food bank two to four times a year. The boxes of donated food completely cover the truck bed, Rosen said. “When I can, I go to Costco and fill up with supplies,” Kavanagh said of his visits to the Quilcene Food Bank. “It seems like they are out there on their own.”

Carlsborg sewer financing package OKâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d It allows flexibility in future, says departing commissioner BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Clallam County commissioners on Tuesday voted 3-0 to authorize the repayment of a $10 million state loan to build a Class A sewer and wastewater treatment facility in Carlsborg with the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rural economic development fund.

connect to the sewer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What this does is gives us flexibility in how we move forward in developing the costs for the individual property owners for this system,â&#x20AC;? said Commissioner Steve Tharinger, whose district covers the eastern third of Clallam County including Carlsborg. The Clallam County Public Utility District â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a partner in the project â&#x20AC;&#x201D; received the $10 million Public Works Trust Fund Loan in May. The PUD will operate the sewer if the county decides to build it. The decision to open the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Opportunity Fund repay loan brings the project closer to fruition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the right use of the Opportunity Fund â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the rural economic development fund,â&#x20AC;? Tharinger said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would hope thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no question about the need for this infrastructure in Carlsborg that will give the property owners the options that they deserve.â&#x20AC;?

Growth management

Opportunity Fund

The county has promoted a sewer to meet the requirements of the urban growth area to foster economic development and to prevent groundwater pollution from existing septic systems in the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shallow aquifer. Carlsborg has been an urban growth area since 2000. Vocal opponents of the project have asked the county to abolish the UGA and rezone the hamlet as rural. Most opponents have cited unknown costs as their chief concern. Tharinger, who was casting his final votes as a county commissioner on Tuesday, acknowledged the controversy in the decadeold issue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a lot of

The Opportunity Fund comes from a 0.09 percent state sales tax. The state in 1998 dedicated the funds to rural counties that receive little sales tax revenue. The money can be used for public infrastructure projects that lead to economic development. Clallam County can use up to $450,000 per year, or about half, of the Opportunity Fund to repay the loan. The 0.5 percent interest loan has a five-year deferral.

A state Department of Ecology beach monitoring program â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Beach Environmental Assessment, Communication and Health, or BEACH â&#x20AC;&#x201D; said that the Clallam County Health Department on Monday removed the swimming advisory signs that had been posted on Dec. 13 after receiving notification of a nearby sewage discharge. A pump station failure on Dec. 10 spilled 91,600 gallons of untreated sewage into Port Angeles Harbor. County officials collected bacteria samples at the beach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Results indicate bacteria concentrations have dropped to background levels,â&#x20AC;? BEACH said Monday.

presupposes that there will be a sewer in Carlsborg. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We started the LUD process that said a majority of participants in Carlsborg would have to agree to form the LUD,â&#x20AC;? Purser said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to identify what this is going to cost a property owner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Until people in Carlsborg know what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to cost them to connect and use this sewer system, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to agree to it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And if they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree to it, then I guess I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree to it.â&#x20AC;? Tharinger said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to have a vote on this, but I think that for Clallam County, and I include the PUD in that, we need a sewer system in Carlsborg.â&#x20AC;? The PUD commission agreed to send its own letter to Sequim about the project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be unreasonable, but I think we need to send a message that the PUD is not pushing this,â&#x20AC;? Purser said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have the expertise, we are in the infrastructure utility business, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the reason weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at the table.â&#x20AC;?


PUD commissioner Will Purser said he would not sign the letter because it

Letter to Sequim

Sequim sewer system. The letter said the county has decided to pursue the â&#x20AC;&#x153;inclusive Carlsborg optionâ&#x20AC;? because it will cost less and happen sooner, Tharinger said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At this time, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look like itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beneficial for us to pursue [the Sequim] option,â&#x20AC;? Tharinger told PUD commissioners in a Monday briefing. The PUD is considering a proposed local utility district that would help pay for the $15 million to $17 million sewer infrastructure. Tharinger said the Opportunity Fund â&#x20AC;&#x153;gives us quite a bit of flexibility in setting what the rates would be for hook up and operation and maintenance to both the industrial/commercial users and residential users.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;In effect, I think that makes the LUD [local utility district] a moot issue,â&#x20AC;? Tharinger said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What this funding mechanism gives us is the flexibility to get to that price point, to address the economic development issue, the need for the infrastructure, and the groundwater piece.â&#x20AC;?

PORT ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Bella Italia, the elegant spot known for its Twilightthemed ravioli, is serving up an altogether different kind of supper this week to dispel the seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s darkness and chill. To mark the winter solstice Thursday, Bella will host a solo appearance by Kim Trenerry, the singer, songwriter and guitar player from Deadwood Revival. And beginning at 8 p.m., the redheaded vocalist will be accompanied by performance painter Jeff Tocher. So while Trenerry offers acoustic versions of her favorites â&#x20AC;&#x201D; ranging from Deadwood tunes to chapters from the book of Bob Dylan â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Tocher will interpret it all on canvas. The pair plans two sets with a break in the middle, to last until at least 10 p.m. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no cover charge, and music lovers of all ages are welcome at Bella Italia, at 118 E. First St. Tocher, a Port Angeles artist, has become known for concocting wildly colorful paintings at musical events around town. Trenerry, while continuing to perform with Deadwood Revival and with her new band the CornStalks, has recently begun playing solo and debuting her own new songs such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Enjoy the Journeyâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything You Need.â&#x20AC;?

Clallam County Fire District No. 3 firefighters cut into the roof of a Sequim home at 871 E. Belfield Ave. The blaze was reported shortly after 9 a.m. Tuesday.


SEQUIM â&#x20AC;&#x201D; No one was hurt in a Tuesday morning blaze where firefighters pulled a half-burned mattress and blankets out of a home at 871 E. Belfield Ave. The fire, reported shortly after 9 a.m., resulted in extensive damage to the bedroom where it was believed to have originated. Two tenants safely escaped from the blaze. The bedroom was left with charred walls, while the rest of the home received extensive to moderate smoke and water damage after Clallam County Fire District No. 3 firefighters doused it about 9:30 a.m., said district spokesman Patrick Young. The exact cause of the fire was under investigation and undetermined Tuesday morning after firefighters had pulled a half-burned mattress and blankets onto

the front lawn of the house in an east Sequim neighborhood just south of the Sequim Senior Activity Center. The owner of the home said the two renters in the home would be relocated to another Sequim rental he owned. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just got a call at work, and they told me the house is on fire,â&#x20AC;? said homeowner Chad Copeland, who was being interviewed by Fire Chief Steve Vogel at the scene. Copeland, who valued the home at about $160,000 or more, said it has been in his family for almost 40 years. He expects insurance to cover the damage. The renters were identified as Ed Nicholson, who had children ages 12 and 13 living with him at the home, and another unidentified man. The children were not home at the time of the fire,

Young said. One of the men was sleeping at the time of the fire. Another came home and when both realized the house was filled with smoke, they quickly left, firefighters said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mattress fires burn hot and smoky,â&#x20AC;? Young said. The men were examined by emergency medical technicians with Olympic Ambulance at the scene and released without being transported to the hospital. Fire district officials contacted the Olympic Peninsula Chapter of the American Red Cross to help them with any needs they might have. Several trucks and 18 firefighters arrived at the fire.

House Republicans say nay to payroll tax deal

$ Briefly . . . Sea-Tac sees heavy days of season


Carriers coming


Colleagues applaud as House Speaker John Boehner, center, leaves after speaking at a news conference on Capitol Hill on Tuesday. If Congress doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t break the stalemate and pass a bill by the end of the year, payroll taxes will go up by almost $20 a week for a worker making a $50,000 salary.

Loss of jobless benefits Almost 2 million people could lose unemployment benefits as well, and doctors would bear big cuts in Medicare payments. The House vote, 229-193, kicks the measure back to the Senate, where the bipartisan two-month measure passed on Saturday by a sweeping 89-10 vote. The Senate then promptly left Washington for the holidays. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow bargaining until the House approves the Sen-

ateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s short-term measure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have been trying to negotiate a yearlong extension with Republicans for weeks, and I am happy to continue doing so as soon as the House of Representatives passes the bipartisan compromise to protect middle-class families, but not before then,â&#x20AC;? Reid said. The House vote caps a partisan debate on Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jobs agenda, which has featured numerous campaignstyle appearances but little real bipartisan negotiation, other than Senate talks last week that produced the twomonth extension. The Senateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s short-term, lowest-common-denominator approach would renew a 2 percentage point cut in the Social Security payroll tax,

plus jobless benefits averaging about $300 a week for the long-term unemployed, and would prevent a 27 percent cut in Medicare payments to doctors. The two-month, $33 billion cost would be financed by a 0.10 percentage point hike in home loan guarantee fees charged by mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which the administration says would raise the monthly payment on a typical $210,000 loan by about $15 a month. The House passed a separate plan last week that would have extended the payroll tax cut for one year. But that version also contained spending cuts opposed by Democrats and tighter rules for jobless benefits.

Bid planned for statewide plastic bag ban THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

plastic bags at grocery, retail and convenience stores, the Seattle ordinance imposes a nickel fee on paper grocery bags to offset the higher cost of paper to stores and to remind shoppers to bring reusable bags. Environmental groups also urged passage as a relatively easy way to eliminate a source of litter that ends up in Puget Sound and can be hazardous to marine life. A gray whale that washed up in West Seattle last year was found with more than 20 plastic bags in its stomach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s huge to see Seattle being a leader to protect Puget Sound wildlife,â&#x20AC;? said Katrina Rosen, field director for Environment Washington.

ROMULUS, Mich. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Honda is revamping its Civic ahead of schedule because of intense competition for small-car buyers in the U.S. The company is telling dealers it will have a revamped model by the end of next year, even though the 2012 Civic just hit showrooms in April. The move is unprecedented for any carmaker because new models arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t usually revamped for at least three years. Honda executives confirmed that they are redo-

Seattleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new ordinance, still allows plastic bags for produce, bulk foods and meat. It also allows them for takeout food from restaurants and for patrons of food banks and farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; markets. Low-income people using their state Basic Food cards will be exempt from the 5-cent paper bag fee. Residents still will be able to buy commercial plastic bags to line garbage cans, pick up dog waste and bag yard debris. Many other U.S. cities have adopted plastic-bag bans, including San Francisco, which approved its ordinance in 2007.

ture convenes next month. Rep. Joe Fitzgibbon, D-Burien, introduced such a bill last year and said he would file it again this coming session. Meanwhile, Rosen said the coalition that supported the Seattle ban would continue its efforts to have other cities in the region enact similar bans. The plastics industry opposed the Seattle ban, saying plastic bags are convenient, reusable and represent a fraction of the trash that ends up in Puget Sound. They also said paper bags consume more resources and cost more to manufacture and transport than plastic.

BREMERTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Three aircraft carriers could end up at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard at the same time in the next couple of months. The Kitsap Sun reported that a $239 million overhaul of the USS Nimitz wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be completed by the end of the year as expected. The Navy said it will move to its new home port in Everett sometime in February. The USS Ronald Reagan is heading in for a $218 million overhaul. Its home port change from San Diego is scheduled for January. Meanwhile, the USS John Stennis that departed Bremerton in July for a seven-month deployment is due to return by the end of February.


SEATTLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The fight over plastic bags could move to the Legislature in the coming session as environmentalists seek to expand the ban unanimously approved Monday by the Seattle City Council to the entire state. At the same time, the plastics industry, which poured $1.4 million into defeating a 20-cent Seattle disposable-bag fee in 2009, suggested it would seek statewide legislation to encourage plastic bag recycling, rather than fighting bans in every city. Seattle joins Edmonds, Bellingham and Mukilteo in approving a ban on thinfilm, plastic shopping bags. Only Edmondsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ordinance has taken effect. The Seattle measure is to begin July 1. In addition to banning

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The House on Tuesday rejected legislation to extend a payroll tax cut and jobless benefits for two months, drawing a swift rebuke from President Barack Obama that Republicans were threatening higher taxes on 160 million workers Jan. 1. Obama, in an appearance in the White House briefing room after the House vote, said the two-month compromise is the only way to stop payroll taxes from going up by two percentage points. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s be clear,â&#x20AC;? Obama said in a surprise appearance in the White House briefing room. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bipartisan compromise that was reached on Saturday is the only viable way to prevent a tax hike on January 1st.

Death and Memorial Notice

PORT TOWNSEND — Motown, rock ’n’ roll, ancient mantras. It won’t be your ordinary Thursday yoga class. Room to Move, the yoga studio upstairs at 1008 Lawrence St., will host its third annual winter solstice celebration from 5 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. Thursday, starring 108 sun salutations — yoga poses greeting the sun — to a varied sound track. Orchestrator Jen Bates believes it’s high time to welcome back the sun, which will shine just a little bit longer each day from this day forward.

Yoga and music So Bates, a veteran yoga teacher and music maven, will mix those two ingredients for a solstice party that’s open to everyone and includes a playlist ranging from East-West fusion to reggae, electronic and blues. Children, grownups, longtime yoga practitioners and novices are all invited to participate, added Room

to Move owner Ilana Smith. Admission is $15, with all proceeds going to Dove House, Jefferson County’s provider of free services for people affected by domestic and sexual violence. For those who can’t quite imagine doing 108 sun salutations, Smith offers encouraging words: “Everything is optional. People can participate at whatever level.”

Room to Move will be filled with candlelight — and cushions for those who want to kick back, relax and watch. Periodically, participants will pause to chant the Gayatri mantra, a Sanskrit text that expresses gratitude for sunshine. Why chant in that ancient tongue, and why 108 salutations? The Sanskrit language, Smith said, was formulated to create certain vibrations in the body, so chanting it is a healing practice. Chanting, however, is

Major General Robert Scott Frix passed away Thursday, December 15, 2011, at his home in Sequim. He was 72. He is survived by his loving wife, Maureen; his sister, Joanna; his brotherin-law, Andrew; his son, Alexander; his daughterin-law, Kathryn; and his daughter, Michele. The son of a farmer, Bob was born in Harlingen, Texas, in 1939, and graduated from Mercedes High School. He graduated in 1961 from the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York. He received Master’s Degrees from Shippensburg State University, the United States Army War College and the United States Army Command & General Staff College. Bob served in the United States Army for 34 years as a combat infantryman, Ranger instructor, master parachutist and master aviator. He served tours in the Vietnam War, Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm, and was deployed to many other nations such as Pakistan, Afghanistan, Kenya and Somalia. His decorations include the Distinguished Service Medal, Legion of Merit, Distinguished Flying Cross, Bronze Star Medal, Air Medals for valor, Meritorious Service Medal and the Army Commendation Medal. Bob met his wife, Mau-

Mr. Frix reen “Moe,” while stationed at Fort Lewis, Washington. Moe at the time was a flight attendant for Continental Airlines based out of Seattle. They married in Sedona, Arizona, and celebrated their 34th anniversary this year. They loved traveling together around the country and the world, and took joy in their two children. Their son, Alex, was born in 1979, and now serves as a public defender in Olympia, Washington, where, inspired by his father’s service, he helped found the state’s first Veterans Court. Their daughter, Michele, was born in 1985 and now works at the nonprofit Seattle International Foundation, where she works to alleviate worldwide poverty, carrying on her father’s devotion to public service for others. Bob was dedicated to several service organizations, including the United Way, the Columbia Basin

College Foundation and especially the Boy Scouts. Bob became an Eagle Scout when he was 17 and volunteered as a Scout Leader for the rest of his life, including as Council President of the Blue Mountain Council in southeastern Washington. While he was working at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation in Richland, Washington, the Boy Scouts awarded Bob the prestigious Silver Beaver Award and the Distinguished Eagle Scout Award. An avid outdoorsman and mountaineer, Bob loved the Pacific Northwest. Six years ago, while living in Richland, Bob suffered a fall and later a stroke. He continued to laugh and share his love from his wheelchair. He and Moe moved to Sequim in February of 2011, where from his house he admired the mountains he once climbed. He will forever be remembered for his love, valor and his devotion to serving his country, his community and those he loved. He took great pride in the success of his family and the achievements of the soldiers he mentored. His ready smile and sense of humor will be missed. Memorial services will be held at a later date at Arlington National Cemetery. Memorials can be sent in Bob’s honor to Disabled American Veterans, Chapter 9, P.O.

Gift ideas to take you up the river WE’VE OFTEN HEARD the question asked, “Why can’t Christmas last all year?” Christmas can last all Pat year . . . if that’s how long Neal it takes to pay for it. Then there are the staggering costs in terms of the human suffering brought on by holiday stress and the endless decisions you are forced to make. Will this Christmas be cash or credit? Will this Christmas be at home, with seasonally depressed friends and dysfunctional family members? Or on the road, with seasonally adjusted holiday fuel prices and a crumbling transportation

infrastructure that makes you want to kiss the ground when you finally make it to your destination? Meanwhile, the money we spend on the holiday season determines the health of our nation’s economy. Here are a few more last-minute must-have items you can stick in an angler’s sock that are guaranteed to produce squeals of joy on Christmas morning: ■ 3-D Magnifying Glass. You’ll need these to read between the lines of our ever increasing fishing laws. Don’t leave home without them. ■ Heated Pole Holder. Can be a real hassle but worth the extra expense for quality time on the splash deck. ■ Guide Model Fish Scale. Ever wonder why some fishermen just seem to catch bigger fish? It’s simple. You just have to

have the right gear. My new Guide Model Fish Scale will have you boating 20-pounders trip after trip while the rest of the ham-and-eggers are lucky to catch one 20-pounder in 10 lifetimes. Using a patented secret method, the guide model scale adds up to 40 percent more weight on any fish you catch. ■ Guide Model Measuring Tape. It’s the law. You may not remove the rare and endangered bull trout from the water while releasing it. You still want to know how big it is. By simply measuring the length and girth of the fish with this device, it’s possible to calculate almost any weight you want. Fisherman’s 3-D magnifying glass not included. ■ Fisherman’s Lie Detector. More than just a surefire way to get to the bottom of a murky fish story, the Fisherman’s

Peninsula Voices

Lie Detector has all the makings of a party game the whole family can enjoy. Just attach the sturdy Velcro cuffs and headband, then turn up the voltage and flip the switch to see just how big the big one that got away really was. The Fisherman’s Lie Detector is not recommended for those with heart conditions or false teeth. Ask your doctor if you’re healthy enough to have sex before using this product. They’ll probably say no — it’s a Hippocratic oath thing, but you never know. ■ Tackle Box On Wheels. Impress your fellow anglers and organize your gear with a tackle box as big as all outdoors. That old saying — about whoever dies with the biggest tackle box wins — is true. It’s a sad fact that fish are just tougher to catch these days. That may be because while


the fish have spent millions of years evolving into more intelligent organisms, humans are getting dumber all the time. (You’re still reading this, right?) If you plan on catching one of today’s super-intelligent fish, you will probably need a secret lure to do it. As any angler will tell you, one secret lure is never enough. The Tackle Box On Wheels, with its sturdy wheelbarrow suspension, will not only carry a lifetime supply of secret lures down to the river, it may even help you walk upright. Mule to drag Tackle Box on Wheels not included.

Basket of coal

Recently, a member of the Service Employees International Union showed the organization’s true colors through their delivery of a gift basket full of coal to Jean Hordyk, an Olympic Medical Center hospital commissioner. Every single one of you at OMC who pays dues to SEIU owes Jean an apology. Shame on you. You don’t even know this woman. I have known Jean for years. She is painstakingly honest, even if she gets hurt by it. She grieves if she has done anyone a disservice. She goes out of her way to shop locally and support local vendors instead of the national chains. She is benevolent with her money, supporting many local kids and groups. She is active in her church and civic groups through the volunteering of her time. She sees paying taxes as her patriotic duty. Her work with seniors goes back decades. And the SEIU has the gall to insult her. Insult to injury: In an attempt to amplify the impact, this basket of coal was delivered not to her home, not to an OMC board meeting but to her place of work. I suppose the hope here was again more of the same playground bullying

Teen pot use up, booze declines ONE OF EVERY 15 high-school students smokes marijuana on a near daily basis, a figure that has reached a 30-year peak even as use of alcohol, cigarettes and cocaine among teenagers continues a slow decline, according to a new government report. The popularity of marijuana, now more prevalent among 10th graders than cigarette smoking, reflects what researchers and drug officials say is a growing perception among teenagers that habitual marijuana use carries little risk of harm. That perception, experts say, is fueled in part by wider familiarity with medicinal marijuana and greater ease in obtaining it. Medical marijuana is legal in 16 states, including Washington. The New York Times

obstinate refusal to permit further petroleum exploration within the United States by the Obama administration, are the primary reasons behind this nation’s economic malaise. If one rules out stupidity on the part of the present administration, then one must ascribe to it darker motives. The Obama administration is an anathema to every principle upon which this nation was founded. Ethan Harris, Sequim

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Wednesday, December 21, 2011 SECTION



Costs keep PT in Olympic NOBODY LIKES MONEY playing a role in high school athletics. The idea that Class 1A Port Matt Townsend can’t afford to move Schubert from the predominantly 2A Olympic League to the 1A Nisqually League doesn’t sit well with some. Unfortunately, that was the takeaway when Port Townsend School District Superintendent Gene Laes handed down his league alignment decision last Thursday. A group of students, parents and coaches about two dozen strong gathered outside the district office Friday morning to protest the decision. But that won’t stop the inertia of financial setbacks that forced the very same district to cut its middle school athletics program a year ago. Port Townsend will stay in the Olympic League for the 2012-14 classification cycle. And regardless of whatever other mitigating factors were raised by Laes in a letter explaining his decision — among them, established relationships within the Olympic League and increased time out of class — topping the list are the same budgetary problems that plague districts throughout the state. “The financing atmosphere that we’re in is the worst in my [28-year] career as a superintendent in this

take another financial cut this year for next year [in the neighborhood of $160,000 to $200,000]. “We’re just scraping by. We get no state funding for sports programs, so it’s extremely tough to have such a high percentage of your decisions based upon the finances.

New Year’s event scheduled for PT WELCOME TO PART one of my two-part look back at the year in golf. Today, I will Michael tackle January through June Carman and next Wednesday I will wrap the year by looking at July through December. But first, as always, there are local items of interest to pass along.

New Year’s Eve event Port Townsend Golf Club will host a blind draw Holiday Blues/ New Year’s Eve Scramble at 10 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 31. Get in the game for $30 per player. You can sign up in the clubhouse or phone the course at 360385-4547. Port Townsend is also offering its $10 Tuesday discount, where players pay $10 and play to their hearts’ content (or the sun goes down). The $10 rate is $3 off the normal rate for nine and $7 off the typical $17 greens fee for 18.

Peaked early, real early I was teamed up with Port Townsend assistant pro Gabriel Tonan and Al West in last Saturday’s Toys For Tots Fundraiser scramble. There was some grumbling about the arrangement at tee time but it quickly became apparent that it was best that I as the

Golf worst player be teamed with the best in the field. Tonan had the genius idea of the day, taking a propane heater along to warm us up before the sun came out. Thankfully, I was able to contribute a little bit, helping us get off to a birdie-birdie start with a 20-foot putt on our first hole and a nice drive on our second. My game went off the rails just after that but I did drop a few more putts and we ended up taking the victory after ending birdiebirdie for a 65 (net 49.7.) Thanks for having me!

Midwinter Open event SkyRidge Golf Course in Sequim will host its annual Midwinter Open Three-Person Scramble on Saturday, Jan. 14. The tourney has a frost-free start at 9:30 a.m. and each team must have a total handicap index of 15 or higher. Cost is $90 per team and includes 18 holes of golf, range balls, two KPs, a long putt and a late afternoon lunch. Carts are $12 per seat with some heaters available for $10. There’s also an optional $60 honey pot per team. Call early, sign-ups are limited to 24 teams. To register, phone SkyRidge at 360-683-3673.

Proven wrong in print It’s always fun when a prediction you make and fully believe is completely uprooted.

I never thought video game players would see Augusta National, home of the Masters, in another video game but it was announced back in early January that the course was to be featured in Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12.

February a little slow Two quarterbacks who play the game of golf met up in the NFL’s Super Bowl. Ben Roethlisberger, who was investigated for public urination on an Ohio golf course (its public record, people!) was bested by good guy and Lake Tahoe celebrity golf tournament participant Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl. Yes, I am still bitter about the Seahawks’ loss to Big Ben’s Steeler’s in 2006.

Wurtz to Disco Bay Chimacum High School graduate and former University of New Mexico Lobo Mark Wurtz started his new job as head golf pro at Discovery Bay Golf Club in Port Townsend on March 7. Wurtz learned the game out at Port Ludlow Golf Club where his father Ted Wurtz was head pro in the 1970s.

The Masters in April Port Angeles High School golfers Jordan Negus and Terrance Stevenson worked as housekeepers in the press room at a very memorable Masters Tournament in April. For three days the green jacket looked like it had been cut and styled to fit the frame of Northern Irelander Rory “Tin Cup” McIlroy.

But then he broke down on the first hole of the back nine, going into no-man’s land in an area of the course television cameras normally never see and posting a triple-bogey on his way to a final round 80. Tiger Woods was rolling that Sunday, breaking out the victory red shirt and the fist pump but he also struggled down the stretch to finish fourth. And eventually Charl Schwartzel, Jerry Seinfeld’s longlost younger brother, bested the field to take the most beautiful green jacket in existence.

Golfers at state in May Chimacum High School’s Mason Moug placed fourth at the Class 1A state tournament at the Home Course in DuPont in May. “I thought about [going for the championship],” said Moug, who came into Wednesday’s final round two strokes behind eventual champion Brett Johnson of Ridgefield. “But I just kind of went in there with an open mind, knowing most of those kids play golf the whole year and I only play four or five months. “Anything in the top five I was pretty happy about.” Moug’s finish was the highest of any North Olympic Peninsula high school golfer. Port Townsend’s Jenny Grauberger was fifth in the girls 1A tourney, and the Redskins’ Cody Piper was ninth in the boys meet. It was the second straight year Port Townsend had a boys golfer finish in the top 10. Sequim’s Ryan O’Mera bounced back from a rough open-

ing day to finish eighth at the Class 2A tourney at the Classic Golf Course in Spanaway. The Wolves’ Kim Duce and Hailey Estes also made the cut at the 2A tourney, finishing in 27th and 33rd place, respectively.

Peninsula takes Cup Port Angeles’ Peninsula Golf Club claimed the first-ever road victory in the three year history of the Peninsula Cup in May, besting five other North Olympic Peninsula teams at Port Ludlow Golf Course. Team members included Gary Thorne, Mike DuPuis, Rick Parkhurst, Gerald Petersen, Lane Richards, Gene Ketchum, Greg Senf, Dave Wahsten, Jim Cole, Eric Schaefermeyer, John Tweter and Darrel Vincent.

McIlroy, tops in June Bouncing back in an epic fashion, Rory McIlroy lapped the field at the 2011 U.S. Open at Congressional. The record-setting performance (16 under par) legitimized the claims of McIlroy being the “next big thing” in pro golf. I’m a bit of a soft touch for sports drama and its always touching to see the winner of the U.S. Open give his dad a big hug after winning the title on Father’s Day. Part two of my golfing year in review will appear next week. ________ Golf columnist Michael Carman can be reached at 360-417-3527 or at pdngolf@

PA features five state-ranked wrestlers Neah Bay earns sweep against Crescent Loggers PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — Port Angeles will be featuring five state-ranked wrestlers at today’s Olympic Shootout: “The Battle for the Axe” tournament at Port Angeles High School. Sequim sports two stateranked competitors, the team’s two co-captains, at the eight-team meet. Action starts at 10 a.m. for the seventh annual event and will continue until about 4:30 p.m. Host Port Angeles is the defending champion and is in Pool 1 along with Class 4A Central Kitsap, 1A Ocosta and 2A Eatonville while Sequim is in Pool 2 with All-Stars, River Ridge and Bainbridge. All teams are 2A except for Central Kitsap and Ocosta. The five ranked Port Angeles wrestlers to watch are sophomore Josh Basden at 113 pounds,

Preps ranked No. 8; junior Kody Steele at 152, ranked No. 7; junior Kacee Garner at 160, ranked No. 6; junior Brian Cristion at 182, ranked No. 5; and senior Zach Grall at 195, ranked No. 6. Another competitor to watch is freshman Brady Anderson at 106, who wasn’t ranked in the latest poll despite winning two prestigious tournaments already this year in his weight class. As a team, the Roughriders have finished in third place in major tournaments the past two weeks. “I’m excited about where we are,” Port Angeles coach Erik Gonzalez said. “We need to keep moving forward and take the next step.” It would be a major step for the Riders to win the 2011 “The Battle for the Axe” and become the first team to repeat as champion. Port Angeles has two wins in the first six years, captured the very first Axe in 2004. The Riders will go against two highly ranked wrestlers in their pool.

They open the tourney at 10a.m. in Round 1 against 4A Central Kitsap, which features the top-ranked heavyweight in state. Kyle Lanque, a senior, will be a hand-full for all the teams. One of the most interesting matches of the tourney could come at 182 pounds as Cristion is set to go against the No. 4-ranked wrestler in 2A state in senior Freddie Baumann of Eatonville. If the two end up in the same weight, they will meet face-to-face in Round 4 starting at 3 p.m. The Riders also go against Ocosta at 11:30 a.m. in Round 2. Sequim, meanwhile, has two ranked wrestlers in senior cocaptains Dakota Hinton and Clay Charlie. Hinton is ranked No. 6 at 170 pounds while Charlies is ranked No. 10 at heavyweight. The Wolves will take on the All-Stars at 10 a.m., River Ridge at 11:30 a.m. and Bainbridge at 1:30 p.m. The crossover competition, Round 4, starts at 3 p.m. where the No. 1 teams in each pool face off on Mat 1, the No. 2s wrestle on Mat 2, the No. 3s compete on Mat 3 and the No. 4s wrestle on Mat 4.

Late surge gives Seahawks hope Seattle still in playoff hunt after ripping Bears BY TIM BOOTH THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

RENTON — At midseason, the Seattle Seahawks were a joke with most of the talk being about which top10 draft position they might land. Now they might be the team no one in the NFC wants to see slip into the playoffs. Seattle (7-7) returned to practice Tuesday after winning for the fifth time in six games by routing Chicago 38-14 on Sunday, keeping alive Seattle’s slim hopes of the playoffs. It’s a remarkable turnaround from the first half of the year and perhaps more of an accomplishment than a year ago, when Seattle made the playoffs with a 7-9 record. They’ve already matched last season’s win total with two games remaining. And Seattle needs both of those victories to even have a shot at sliding into a most unlikely playoff berth, beginning on Saturday when they host San Francisco. The 49ers hammered Seattle 33-17 in the season opener. “We’re not the same team we were the first week of the season, just like they aren’t,” Seattle fullback Michael Robinson said. “It should be a great matchup, a great test for us.” No matter the circumstance this much is clear: Seattle needs to win its final two games and either

Atlanta or Detroit must lose its final two. The rest of the playoff scenarios get jumbled, but the simplest would be Seattle winning two and Detroit losing two. If it’s Atlanta in the mix, Seattle would need another team involved in a threeway — or more — tiebreaker due to the Falcons’ win over Seattle earlier this season. It’s long odds to be sure. But just having the word playoffs uttered in the Seattle locker room is an achievement following the Seahawks’ 2-6 start. “They are within reach and we know that, but we can’t look ahead because all we can focus on is San [Francisco],” Linebacker Leroy Hill said. “San [Francisco] is a tough opponent, we can’t look past them. You have to focus on them. “We’ll be ready, we’ll be geared up and we know what’s on the line. It’s almost playoffs for us now.”

Better offense Much of the second-half surge can be attributed to their second-half performances. Seattle’s first-half offense has been dreadful at times, with last Sunday yet another example. Unable to ever get into a rhythm offensively, the Seahawks had just 84 yards, five first downs and their one touchdown came after a turnover deep in

Lynch — who finished with 42 yards on 20 carries but scored twice — Jackson was forced to go to the air. He was 15 of 19 for 176 yards, one touchdown and a passer rating of 122.8 in the second half against Chicago. Add in defensive touchdowns by defensive end Red Bryant and cornerback Brandon Browner and a halftime deficit turned into a third straight blowout for the Seahawks. Seattle has scored 30 or more in three consecutive weeks, the first time the franchise has done that and won all three games since the end of the 2002 season. The Seahawks’ perfor-

mance in the closing stages of this season couldn’t be any different from a year ago, when Seattle started quick before staggering to the finish. In Carroll’s first year, the Seahawks burst out to a 4-2 start, then won just twice in the final seven weeks — a 31-14 win over a Carolina team that finished with the league’s worst record; and a Week 17 win over St. Louis that got Seattle into the playoffs. The way Seattle has played the last six weeks is the closing punch Carroll wants. “There’s a lot of good feeling in our locker room. These guys know what we’re trying to get done.”

Schubert: Redskins to stay put in Olympic Without any ironclad guarantees that the funds would be there, however, Laes said he could not allow the district to commit to spending that money. “Arguments on both sides of this issue were compelling and emotional and there wasn’t a ridiculous point of view from either side,” Laes said. “Every single argument had some validity.” Added Laes, “My job is to make decisions. Not all of my decisions throughout my career have been viewed as favorable by everyone, but I’m not in a position to make everyone happy.” Indeed, it appears clear

that one side will be unhappy with this decision for some time to come. It didn’t help that a student group that met with Laes on Thursday alleged he told them he was still undecided after the meeting even though he’d already sent an email informing Port Townsend coaches the school would stay in the Olympic in 2012-2014.

Peninsula College men capture title Pirates still rolling along PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

SALEM, Ore. — The Peninsula College men’s basketball team ran away from a pesky Columbia Basin squad in the second half to take home a 96-84 victory in the championship of the NWAACC Crossover Tournament on Sunday night. The defending NWAACC champion Pirates (7-1) showed once again any team that wants to win the NWAACC championship will likely have to go through them. Tournament MVP J.T.

Terrell paced the way with 24 points and all-tournament team selection Tyler Funk added 20 points, connecting on 5 of 7 3-pointers. Columbia Basin came out of the gates on fire, connecting on its first four 3-point attempts to take a 14-5 lead early in the contest. From that point forward, the Pirates worked to slowly get back into the game before taking the lead 33-32 with 4:33 remaining in the first half. “We played from behind in the first half and that experience is going to pay dividends in the future,” coach Lance Von Vogt said. “Anytime you stare adversity in the eye and

overcome it, you grow. That is what happened with us tonight.” Columbia Basin, however, was able to take the lead going into halftime at 42-39 after a Dudley Ewell turnover led to a buzzerbeating 3-pointer to end the half. In the second half — the depth of the Pirates — playing their third game in three days, proved to be just too much, outscoring the Hawks 57-42 in the final stanza. Five Pirates scored in double figures, including Deshaun Freeman with 13 points and a team-high eight rebounds, Dudley Ewell added 11 points, and Sam Waller chipped in with 10 points and dished out a

team-high nine assists. “Our depth really affects the game,” Von Vogt said. “I am proud of our whole roster with everybody contributing each game. What a great way to start Christmas break.” The hot shooting continued for the Pirates in the championship game as they made 53.6 percent (37 of 69) from the field, including 52 percent (11 of 21) from the 3-point line.

Semifinal win In the semifinals, Peninsula started fast and never let Lower Columbia catch up, cruising to a 97-63 victory. Terrell led the charge, scoring 32 points on a blis-

tering 12 of 14 shooting, including 3 of 5 from 3-point range. Dudley Ewell added 13 points and a team-high eight rebounds for the Pirates. “Anytime you lead wireto-wire on a Jim Rofflercoached LCC team, you know your team played well,” Von Vogt said. “Our guys put together our best 20 minutes of defense in the first half. We pressured the ball on the catch and rotated out of our help situations better than we have in the past.” The Pirates shot 59.7 percent (37-62) from the field and never trailed, leading by 22 points at halftime (48-26).

“We still need to sustain our defensive effort for a full game, but when we do we could be special because we can really score the basketball,” said Von Vogt. The Pirates held the Red Devils to 37.3 percent (2567) shooting for the game while collecting 12 steals, led by Terrell with three and a host of Pirates with two each. Djuan Smith, who added 10 points, was one of 11 Pirates to score in the contest. The Pirates will be back in action on Dec. 28 when they take on Yakima Valley in the Clackamas Holiday Invitational in Oregon City, Ore.

DEAR ABBY: I’m a 25-year-old guy with a unique problem. My father has been dating a woman since I was 16 who has a daughter my age named “Emma.” Over the years Emma and I became good friends — then more than that. We hooked up a few times. About a year ago, I told her I had developed feelings for her, which drove her off pretty fast. We haven’t talked since. She now lives in another state with her boyfriend, and I’m happy for her. With the holidays here, Dad expects me to go to all of the events and get-togethers. I made up excuses last year to avoid them but don’t think I can do that again. I want to escape the awkward interaction with Emma and her boyfriend because I still have feelings for her. I don’t want to disappoint Dad, but I don’t know how to handle this. Help, please.

The Last Word in Astrology ❘ ARIES (March 21-April 19): Doing extra work will make you feel better about taking time off. Venturing to other parts of the country or visiting family or friends should be considered. Don’t let someone’s uncertainty stop you from following through with your plans. 3 stars


TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Emotional matters will surface if you or someone you are with overindulges and overreacts. Concentrate on whatever chores you have to complete before the end of the year. Don’t get involved in an argument you cannot win. 3 stars

when I ask when, they give me the Van Buren runaround. (They always have money for tattoos, movies and concerts, though.) They also expect me to babysit for them on weekends, but that’s the only time I can see my boyfriend. How do I tell them I want to live my own life? I want to be free and not have to worry about them needing me to baby-sit and making me feel guilty about it. I’m afraid they’ll say that because I lived with them, they no longer owe me the money. I don’t know how to tell them without it turning ugly. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Frustrated in K.C., Mo.


Dear Frustrated: I presume your daughter and son-in-law have met your boyfriend? Announce the good news that you will be living with him; it shouldn’t be shocking. Ask again for the money that they owe you. Be pleasant, but firm, and don’t let it escalate into an argument. If they say they don’t have it, ask them to sign (and date) a note promising to repay it at a later date. That will be your proof that a loan was extended.

Dear Running: You don’t have to attend “all” the events and get-togethers, but you should attend a few. When you do, consider bringing a friend with you and minimizing the contact you have with Emma and her boyfriend. Observe the social amenities, keep the conversation brief and casual, and concentrate on the rest of the family. While the initial contact may be painful, this is no different than any other romance that didn’t work out. The awkwardness will pass if you concentrate on something else.

For Better or For Worse


Fun ’n’ Advice


by Garry Trudeau

by Eugenia Last

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Strive to reach your goals before the year comes to a close. Be realistic about what you can and cannot afford. Face responsibility head-on and do your best to let your positive attitude diminish any negative influences. 2 stars

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t trust anyone trying to talk you out of your cash. If something is over budget, decline. You have to protect your assets if you want to head into the new year with less stress and a good financial plan. 3 stars

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Confusion while traveling will slow things down. Someone will misinform you. Anger isn’t the answer. Pick yourself up and do your best to reach your goals or destination. The end result will be fortunate. 4 stars

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A compassionate approach towards the people you work with or for will help ease any tension that has been affecting your relationship. Offer suggestions or put in extra hours. What you do above and beyond the call of duty will be impressive. 4 stars

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Be honest regarding your feelings or you may get caught in a sticky situation. Someone from your past is likely to contact you, looking for the go-ahead to waltz back into your life. Don’t lead anyone on. 3 stars

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Pay off old debts or take care of unfinished business you don’t want to carry into the new year. Talks will lead to an agreement if you are straightforward about what you want. Don’t bully or let anyone bully you. 3 stars

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your prime concern should be to enjoy friends, family and the people you love most. Shopping will lead to temptation and added stress. Keep in mind that you cannot buy love. Your time and thoughtfulness are all that’s required. 5 stars

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): A positive approach to whatever you do or whoever you are dealing with will bring the best results. Say what’s on your mind and reveal what your intentions are. Overindulgence must be avoided emotionally, financially and physically. 3 stars

The Family Circus

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Put your emotions on the backburner and think. You will come up with some good ideas that will save the day and position you well for future projects. A change in your personal life will bring you great joy. 2 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Put more emphasis on your finances and less on trying to win favors or buy love at the cost of going into debt. Last-minute purchases should be avoided. Spending time with the people you love will be more beneficial in the end. 5 stars

Briefly . . . Shopping classmates help others PORT ANGELES — PTA Young Shoppers Club made its annual appearance at Roosevelt Elementary School during a recent week when students were able to bring in money and shop for holiday gifts. Prices ranged from 25 cents to $20, with many items going for about $1.50. Parent Teacher Association volunteers helped to wrap the gifts after they were purchased. Proceeds from the sales fund scholarships for those students who can’t afford to make purchases. The PTA contracts with Elliott Bay Fundraising and its My Holiday Fair program to provide a variety of gifts.

Capture king tides OLYMPIA — Washington’s higher-than-usual winter tides will begin today, and the state Depart-

ment of Ecology is inviting the public to share their photos of this naturally occurring event. These higher-than-usual tides are sometimes called

“king tides” and occur when the sun’s and moon’s gravitational pull reinforce one another. King tides offer a glimpse of how rising sea

levels from global climate change could affect the state’s coastal areas. In the coastal regions, king tide dates vary slightly depending on location: ■ In the Strait of Juan de Fuca, they will occur today through Sunday and Jan. 18-22. ■ Along Washington’s outer coast, king tides will occur from today through Monday and Jan. 19-24. ■ Puget Sound dates are Tuesday through Dec. 29 and Jan. 13-17. Try to take pictures where the high water levels can be gauged against familiar landmarks such as sea walls, jetties, bridge supports or buildings. Note the date, time and location of the photo, then upload the images on the Washington King Tide Photo Initiative Flickr Group at groups/1611274@N22. Peninsula Daily News
