Chapman and Roth will square off in the Aug. 7 primary, which is limited to District 2 voters, even if no one else files for the position because it’s a partisan seat, county elections supervisor Shoona Radon said.

Roth’s husband, Terry, was defeated by Chapman in the 2008 general election 23,645 votes to 11,7670 votes, or 67 percent to 33 percent. Roth, who has never held elective office, is a precinct committeewoman and is on the finance committee of the county Republican Party.

Gustin rides off today from Olympic National Park post BY PAUL GOTTLIEB PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — On her first day as Olympic National Park superintendent fewer than four years ago, Karen Gustin signed an agreement she said she had no part in writing but much to do with enacting: A pact between the park and eight area tribes that pledged to keep open lines of communication. The memo of understanding was signed by the Quileute, Lower Elwha Klallam, Jamestown S’Klallam, Quinault, Hoh, Makah, Port Gamble S’Klallam and Skokomish tribes. Its signing July 10, 2008, set a fast-paced tone right from the start for Gustin’s brief though busy tenure as the park’s 14th superintendent, a stint that ends today with her retirement from

As for Gustin, she said she and her family will move to Lexington, Ky., to indulge her lifelong love of horses in the “The Horse Capital of the World� and to be closer to her daughter, Keely, herself a freshman equine business management student at the University of Kentucky.

The singer was joined by Oprah Winfrey, spiritual leader Deepak Chopra Lady Gaga and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to kick off the Born This

Gaga spoke to more than 1,100 students from several states, faculty and invited guests at Harvard, urging the young audience to “challenge meanness and cruelty.” “I believe that if you have revolutionary potential, you must make the world a better place and use it,” she said. She reminded them that there is no law to make people be kind to one another and added: “I wish there was because, you know, I’d be chained naked to a fence somewhere trying to pass it.”

ANDREW BREITBART, 43, a caustic commentator who was loved by conservatives who championed his viral Internet exposes that brought down politicians and hated by others who said he selectively used the truth to do it, has died in Los Angeles. Mr. Breitbart’s website, big journalism. com, said Thursday he died of natural Mr. Breitbart causes. He was walking in 2011 near his house in the Brentwood neighborhood shortly after midnight when he collapsed, said actor Orson Bean, his father-in-law. Mr. Breitbart had had heart problems a year earlier, but Bean said he could not pinpoint what happened.

The conservative media publisher and activist was embraced by anti-tax, conservative tea-partiers and reviled by liberals for his Internet investigations that led to the resignations of former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner and former U.S. Agriculture Department official Shirley Sherrod. His loudmouth style was lionized by his fans for exposing government corruption and media bias.

1937 (75 years ago) U.S. Rep. Mon Wallgren’s bill creating Mount Olympus National Park out of national monument and national forest lands in the Olympic Mountains has been given a unanimous endorsement by the Port Angeles Rotary Club. A telegram was sent to Wallgren, D-Everett, and Rotarians were urged to write individually to the state legislators who

are pushing an amendment in Olympia that would alter the boundaries outlined in the Wallgren bill. The lawmakers are favoring a smaller national park that essentially eliminates Grays Harbor County and protects financial interests in Jefferson County. Three Port Angeles Rotarians visited the Port Townsend Rotary Club to discuss the Port Angeles

sites, a campfire circle for 400 people and a campground ranger station. The project will cost $116,500.

Senate kills reversal of birth control rule Democrats overrule bill BY LAURIE KELLMAN THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — The Senate on Thursday defeated a GOP effort to roll back President Barack Obama’s policy on contraception insurance coverage in the first vote on an issue that raised questions of religious and women’s rights and riled Americans in this volatile election year. The 51-48 vote killed an amendment that would have allowed employers and insurers to opt out of portions of the president’s health care law they found morally objectionable. That would have included the law’s requirement that insurers cover the costs of birth control. Democrats said the measure would have allowed employers and insurers to opt out of virtually any medical treatment with the mere mention of a moral or religious objection.

Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. Republicans kept one such senator in the fold on the vote, Snowe’s fellow senator from Maine. Sen.

Twister death toll rises to 13 BY JIM SUHR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

HARRISBURG, Ill. — Crews cleared splintered plywood and smashed appliances from smalltown neighborhoods Thursday, a day after tornadoes killed 13 people in the Midwest and South. But the forecast held a menacing possibility: More twisters may be coming, and they could be even stronger. Damaged communities tried to take advantage of the brief break in the weather, mindful of one meteorologist’s warning that by today, both regions would again be “right in the bull’s eye.” Skies were sunny in the southern Illinois community of Harrisburg, where Darrell Osman was back in the rubble of his dead mother’s home, trying to salvage what he could before more storms roll in. When he arrived, a neighbor handed him his mother’s wallet, which the storm had deposited in a truck near her home. If another twister hit the same area, the blow to the town would be grave, he said.

More storms coming National Weather Service meteorologist Beverly Poole said severe storms are expected to roll through the region again after midnight Thursday and linger

Then yet another system is expected to arrive this afternoon. Poole said both rounds of violent weather carry the potential of more tornadoes. The Weather Service planned to bring a severe-weather specialist to the region’s command center to provide up-to-the-minute information before and during the storms. Osman awoke before Wednesday’s storm because he was alerted by his special weather

radio. He said early warning equipment was essential. “The peace of mind you get from it sitting on your dresser is well worth the cost,” he said. Ryan Jewell, a meteorologist with the Storm Prediction Center, said the next system will take a similar path as Wednesday’s storms and has the potential for even more damage. Sixteen tornadoes were reported from Nebraska and Kansas across southern Missouri to Illinois and Kentucky, the Storm Prediction Center.

A SHALLOW EARTHQUAKE measuring 3.2 on the Richter scale was reported Thursday morning near Salinas, Calif., according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The temblor occurred at 8:31 a.m. Pacific time at a depth of 3.1 miles. According to the geologic survey, the epicenter of the quake was 10 miles from Pinnacles, 11 miles from Tres Pinos, 14 miles from Gonzales, 17 miles from Hollister and 60 miles from San Jose City Hall.

retrofit of the main building.� The library had budgeted $174,000 for the Pink House renovation, but once final costs are known, the project probably will cost less than that, Percy said. “It’s looking very good that it will be coming in under budget,� she said. Renovation of the Pink House was funded through the library’s capital campaign, with no public money used, Percy said. The city of Port Townsend administered the project, which was completed by Hoch Construction of Port Angeles. The Pink House renovation is the first of three phases — which also will include the retrofit and the addition of a new wing — and is expected to cost about $9 million, which will come from a variety of federal, state and local sources,

Percy said. Percy said all three phases probably will be completed in 2014, a year later than originally expected.

Conference rooms In the Pink House, the first floor was renovated to include two conference rooms, a 420-square-foot space and a smaller 200-square-foot room. The areas can be used together or separately as they have different entrances, Percy said. The two meeting spaces already are in use by such library programs as job training and reading activities. Other potential uses are author readings, tutoring, book groups, literary groups CHARLIE BERMANT/PENINSULA NEWS and homework help.

He reiterated what he said at the Nov. 29 meeting, which was that the willingseller, willing-buyer provision was key to him signing the letter. He said then that property owners, if they were interested in selling, should have that right but added: “It appears to me now that no private-property owners in this proposal wants to sell, so I actually told representatives of [Sen. Patty] Murray and Dicks’ office you should just remove the private-property owners and look at it as a federal issue.� On Thursday, Chapman

As a Republican, Chapman defeated incumbent Carole Boardman in 2000 and ran unopposed in 2004. In February 2008, the county Republican Party said Chapman violated its bylaws by supporting Tharinger, who defeated Repub-

lican Bob Forde in the November 2007 election, and barred Chapman from “holding yourself as a Republican with any standing.� The party suspended its support for Chapman for two years. Chapman became an independent and never asked to be reinstated to the party. “I was elected in 2008 as an independent, and it was important to me to maintain that commitment to voters who hired me as an independent in 2008,� he said.

WASHINGTON, D.C — Lower Elwha Klallam tribal Chairwoman Frances Charles will participate today in a White Housesponsored conference in Washington, D.C., that will focus on the link between conservation and strong local economies, the White

House announced Thursday. The “White House Conference on Conservation: Growing America’s Outdoor Heritage and Economy� will bring together boaters, anglers, farmers, land and historic preservationists, small-business owners and local governments to “explore the link between conservation and strong local economies through

tourism, outdoor recreation and healthy l a n d s , waters and wildlife,� the W h i t e House said. Charles Charles will be on a panel titled “Restoring Rivers: Building Resilience for People and Wildlife.� The conference will be live-streamed from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Pacific Standard Time at

A specific time for Charles’ participation was not available Thursday, and Charles was unavailable for comment Thursday. Conference participants will include Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack and Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar.

‘Vital roles’ In selecting Charles, the White House cited her “vital roles� in the recovery of the ancient Tse-whit-zen village off Marine Drive in

Port Angeles, which was uncovered beginning in 2003 and is among the largest archaeological finds in the nation. The White House also cited Charles’ support of the Tribal Canoe Journey and the tribe’s native language program. Department of Interior Deputy Press Secretary Jordan Montoya, in an email Thursday, also cited Charles’ involvement in the $325 million Elwha River restoration project. “Frances Charles has

SEQUIM — Kathleen Drew, a Democratic candidate for secretary of state, stopped by the North Olympic Peninsula this week to meet with supporters. Drew, who also met with Peninsula Daily News and Sequim Gazette reporters, talked with about 30 people Wednesday at the Sequim home of Pat Johansen, a Clallam County representative to the state Democratic Party, before heading back to her Olympia home. “People just loved her,� Johansen said. “She is warm and smart and wellorganized and articulate — everything you hope and pray you have in a candidate.� Drew, 51, is a former state senator who authored the state’s ethics policy and recently worked on environmental issues for the governor’s policy office.

into the state system, and they should be able to share that information,� she said. Additionally, Drew said she would speed up the scanning of government documents to make them more accessible to the public, add drop boxes for ballots in counties that are currently underserved and focus on problems related to voter participation. Drew said she supports the creation of a state Voting Rights Act that could resolve issues regarding minority representation. The act, which died in committee this month in the state Legislature, could require communities with a history of racial discrimination to move from at-large seats to districts, which would draw lines that supporters say would increase minority voter influence. “It’s not something that happens across the state, but in select places, you have to have appropriate laws in place to make sure there is a fair opportunity for everybody to run for office,� she said.

Meeting in PA will outline Legislators call ‘transition town’ movement for change in BY TOM CALLIS PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — Organizers hope to make Port Angeles the next city to become part of the “transition town” movement. Transition towns are communities that aim to make themselves models for finding new ways to overcome global issues, such as climate change, oil dependency and economic shifts and crises, at the local level. Port Angeles City Councilwoman Sissi Bruch and Sequim resident Dave Taylor want Port Angeles to join this effort and are hosting a kickoff meeting at 6:30 p.m. March 15 at the Port Angeles Senior Center, 328 E. Seventh St. Port Townsend resident Shelly Randall, who runs www.sustainable, will be the guest speaker.

Bruch said becoming a transition town could involve promoting high-tech or renewable industry and even encouraging people to buy locally made food or grow Bruch their own.

“The age of cheap energy is over,” she said. “Transition says let’s not wait until things get really bad until we try to organize a response,” Randall added. Local 20/20 became a recognized transition town initiative Jan. 1, she said. There are 114 transition towns, including Port Townsend, in the United States, according to the website Local 20/20 started in Port Townsend in 2006 and has several “action groups” that focus on issues associated with waste, climate action, transpiration and others.

Retiree group seeks volunteers, mainly in Clallam BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

The Olympic Peninsula Bluebills are looking for Clallam County volunteers to help build wheelchair ramps, install handrails and do other minor construction projects that can help make homes safer for the elderly and disabled. The Bluebills started out as a group of Boeing retirees who, with their spouses and friends, do volunteer work with local agencies and schools. Their primary goal is

to make it possible for senior citizens to stay in their homes for as long as possible. Not all volunteers have connections with Boeing, said Larry Elton, a Jefferson County Bluebill. Any volunteer, with or without building skills, is welcome, Elton said. “If you can hold a hammer, we can use you,” he said. The organization has struggled to find volunteers in Clallam County, where the group tries to complete one project each week.

EVERETT — A mudslide hit railroad tracks early Thursday in the same area they were hit Feb. 22 at Everett. In both cases, the rails were quickly cleared by Burlington Northern Santa Fe crews for freight trains, but passenger trains have a 48-hour safety moratorium. BNSF spokesman Gus Melonas said the slide at 1:45 a.m. Thursday was detected by sensors that signaled a train to stop. Mud, rock and trees covered about 20 feet of track

about 5 feet deep. BNSF equipment cleared the track by 9 a.m. Melonas said eight freight trains were delayed. For safety reasons, Sound Transit and Amtrak passenger trains can’t use railroad track for 48 hours after a mudslide. Rail passengers are taking buses.

Board members who have completed their terms and are retiring from the board include Simon Barnhart, Platt Irwin Law Firm; Tricia Gormley, Peninsula College student; Sandy

Caucuses not just for political types NO ONE WILL win when the Republican presidential nominee selection melee brushes by Washington state this weekend. (To read more about the Martha M. local caucuses, Ireland see Page A12 today.) A straw poll taken at precinct caucuses will inspire the media to announce a “winner,” but the poll won’t affect who ultimately wins the state’s 43 Republican delegates. Winning delegates does not come that easy in this state. A 1988 voters’ initiative to the Legislature birthed a presidential preference primary. However, the major political parties never wholeheartedly embraced the concept. In 2008, the Democratic Party chose all its delegates via the historic caucus/convention system. They treated the presidential primary as a nonbinding straw poll.

Republican caucuses chose 20 delegates, and primary voters decided which candidate would get the other 20 delegates. Despite its scant impact, that 2008 presidential primary cost the state roughly $10 million. Perceiving the 2012 presidential primary as an unnecessary extravagance, the Legislature deleted it from the budget. Instead, Washington returns to its historic caucus/convention system. Of course, President Obama has a lock on the Democratic nomination. But Democrats still need to draft a platform and choose delegates, using a superdelegate formula specific to their party. They will caucus to do that Sunday, April 15. This Saturday, Republicans — with four candidates still in the hunt for the party’s nomination— will caucus across the state. Most caucuses will be “pooled,” which means that multiple precincts will meet at each location. Specifics on Clallam County caucuses are available online at or by phoning 360-417-3035. For Jefferson County it’s www. or phone 360-343-

4041. With no presidential primary this year, the caucuses are voters’ only opportunity to indicate their preferred nominee. However, the greater advantage of attending a caucus is the opportunity to guide development of the county platform and resolutions. Demonstrating the potential impact, platform planks and resolutions have advanced from Clallam County in past years to be included in the state and national platforms. In Clallam County, a draft platform based on the 2010 platform is available as a starting point for discussions. (Disclosure: I am a member and past-chair of the platform committee.) Each precinct also elects two or three delegates plus alternates to the county convention. Delegates to the county convention are mostly chosen on the basis on who is available and wants to go. Many precincts — my own Robin Hill included — are often unable to fill all the delegate and alternate seats to which they are entitled. The GOP county conventions — set for March 24 in Jefferson

Will those already installed be grandfathered in or perhaps given a continuance until they can be removed? How will the removal be done if required? Will police track down the blissfully unaware citizens who have been unknowingly broadcasting their every movement to watching police or will those folks be notified to bring their vehicles in to police headquarters to have them extricated like a bad tooth?


County and March 31 in Clallam — will elect delegates to the state convention in Tacoma on May 30-June 2. The state convention will elect 40 of the state’s 43 delegates to the Republican National Convention, Aug. 27-30 in Tampa Bay, Fla. The state party chairman and two national committee people are automatic delegates. Only as they go to national will delegates become committed to support a particular candidate. Even then, they are committed only for the first round of voting. At the county convention, the pool of potential delegates to the state is also limited to those who are willing and able to go. The number of willing delegates almost always exceeds the number of delegates and alternates allowed. Voting is by secret ballot, with delegates typically being chosen more for their personal qualities than for which presidential candidate they support. Caucuses are easy entry points to political action. Every registered voter who is willing to sign a form pledging not to participate in any other party’s nomination process is welcome to

THAT DUSTY MONKEES lunchbox in your attic still won’t put both your kids through college, but yes, says a pop culture collectibles expert, the death of Davy Jones might make this a good time to cash in on it. Gary Sohmer, longtime appraiser on PBS’s “Antiques Roadshow,” says a Monkees lunchbox in good shape could bring $400-$500 or more. That could be up to 40 percent more than it brought a week ago, said Sohmer, largely because the publicity around Jones’ sudden death from a heart attack at the age of 66 on Wednesday has stirred up a flurry of interest in both him and the Monkees. The band’s “The Best of the Monkees” was the No. 3 most downloaded on iTunes, while the song “Daydream Believer” was the No. 12 on the music site’s charts Wednesday. The most desirable items are the ones made from 1966 to about 1970, and the most valuable often are fragile items in their original boxes — like Monkees hand puppets. “You had four heads and when you wiggled them, each one talked

“Ecology Replies,” the Feb 29 letter in Peninsula Voices criticizing my Feb. 3 letter, contained several mistakes. The Feb. 29 letter, by Tom Loranger, deputy program director for state Department of Ecology Water Resources, claimed that I had written that “Ecology has never shown scientific evidence that wells impact the amount of water in the Dungeness River.” This is a nonsensical statement . . . and I never made it.

GOP campaign turns Greek tragedy RICK SHOULD SCAT. Mitt Romney needs to be left alone to limp across the finish line, so he can devote his full time and attention to losing to President Obama. Robo-Romney, who pulled Maureen out victories in Dowd his home state and in Arizona, and Sanctorum are still in a race to the bottom. Yet the once ruthless Republican Party seems to have pretty much decided to cave on 2012 and start planning for a post-Obama world. Not even because Obama is so strong — simply because their field is so ridiculously weak and wacky. John McCain has Aeschylated it to “a Greek tragedy.” And he should know from Greek tragedy. “It’s the negative campaigning and the increasingly personal attacks,” he told The Boston Herald, adding, “the likes of which we have never seen.” When a man who was accused of having an illegitimate black child in the 2000 South Carolina primary thinks this is the worst ever, the GOP is really in trouble. The Arizona senator, who’s supporting Romney, grimly noted: “I know he’s going to be the nominee, but I also worry about how much damage has been done.” Sparring this week, Romney called Rick Santorum an “economic lightweight,” and Santorum called Romney “a lightweight on conservative accomplishments,” “uniquely unqualified” and “a bully.” In the old days, the Republican ego had control of the party’s id. The id — sometimes described as a galloping horse or crying baby, “the dark, inaccessible part of our personality . . . chaos, a cauldron full of seething excitations,” as Freud called it — was whipped up obliquely by candidates. Nixon had his Southern strategy of using race as a wedge, Bush Senior and Lee Atwater used the

Willie Horton attack, and W. and Karl Rove conjured the gay marriage bogyman. Once elected, those presidents curbed the id with the ego, common sense and reason. But now the GOP’s id is unbridled. The horse has thrown the rider; the dark forces are bubbling. Moderates, women, gays, Hispanics and blacks — even the president — are being hunted in this most dangerous game. Asked in Michigan why he couldn’t excite the base, Romney said he is not willing to make “incendiary comments” or “light my hair on fire.” In the latest sign that moderate Republicans feel passe, Sen. Olympia Snowe of Maine shockingly announced her retirement, decrying “ ‘my way or the highway’ ideologies” and a vanishing political center. The apogee of apathy for Romney was on Friday, when the man who says he’s an expert manager spoke to a mostly empty football stadium in Detroit. Stephen Colbert defended Romney, saying he connected with the sea of empty chairs because they, too, were “plastic and uncomfortable.” Some Republicans at the annual winter governors’ meeting here murmured that it was over for Mittens even before he cited his wife’s two Caddies and his NASCAR team-owner pals, and awkwardly mocked the plastic ponchos of Daytona racing fans: “I like those fancy raincoats you bought. Really sprung for the big bucks.” They said Mitt was damaged as a contender against Obama when he was forced to admit that he had a 15-percent tax rate (given, as The Huffington Post points out, that Romney averaged $6,400 an hour at Bain Capital while creating lots of jobs with paltry wages). Romney defended himself in an interview to Fox News on Tuesday, sitting in front of a poster of his dad with the slogan: “Romney Great in ’68.” Romney pere lost his dream of becoming president when he

claimed he was brainwashed on Vietnam. Now Santorum should forfeit his chance after making a far dumber remark: Kids should beware of college because they’ll get brainwashed. Pandering to Tea Partiers, Santorum, who has a BA, MBA and JD, and who supported higher education in his 2006 senatorial campaign, absurdly turned the American dream inside-out and into sauerkraut. He called the president “a snob” for encouraging people to get more educated and asserted that Obama only wants Americans to go to college so they can be remade in his image, while being indoctrinated by liberal college professors. Does he think that defining ambition down and asking kids to give up hope is a good mantra? Even Gov. Bob McDonnell of Virginia, who was trying to mandate that women seeking abortions be shamed with vaginal ultrasounds that Democrats dubbed “legal rape,” thought Santorum went too far. As Mitt’s remarks get curiouser, Rick’s get creepier. In an interview with ABC News’s George Stephanopoulos, Santorum offended the Catholics he’s courting by saying that the JFK speech ratifying the separation of church and state made him want “to throw up” because Kennedy had thrown “his faith under the bus.” “I don’t believe in an America where the separation of church and state are absolute,” Sanctorum said. It didn’t work in Michigan and Arizona, where Romney won the Catholic vote. If he is willing to cross that line, the only two possibilities are that he doesn’t understand the nature of the United States or that he wants to do damage to the United States. Neither is acceptable.

The autoworkers Obama left behind THE WHITE HOUSE fairy tale about the Happily Ever After Auto Bailout is missing a crucial, bloody page. While PresiMichelle dent Barack Obama bragged Malkin about “standing by American workers” at a rowdy United Auto Workers meeting Tuesday, he failed to acknowledge how the Chicago-style deal threw tens of thousands of nonunion autoworkers under the bus. In a campaign pep rally/sermon billed as a “policy speech,” Obama nearly broke his arm patting himself on the back for placing his “bets” (read: our money) on the $85 billion federal auto industry rescue. “Three years later,” he crowed, “that bet is paying off for America.” Big Labor brass cheered Obama’s citation of GM’s “highest profits in its 100-year history” as the room filled with militant UAW chants of “union made.” “Union made” — but who paid? Scoffing at the criticism that his bailout was a massive union payoff, Obama countered that all workers sacrificed to save the auto industry. “Retirees saw a reduction in the health care benefits they had earned,” Obama told the congregation, er, crowd. “Many of you saw hours reduced,” he sympathized, “or pay and wages scaled back.” Let’s clear the fumes (again), shall we? The bailout pain was not distributed equally. It was redistributed politically. Bondholders standing up for

their property and contractual rights got shortchanged and demonized personally by the president. Dealers and suppliers faced closures based on political connections and lobbying clout, rather than neutral efficiency evaluations. And as I first reported in September 2010, in the rush to nationalize the auto industry and avoid contested court termination proceedings, the White House auto team schemed with Big Labor bosses to preserve UAW members’ costly pension funds by shafting their nonunion counterparts. These forgotten nonunion pensioners (who worked for the Delphi/GM auto parts company) lost all of their health and life insurance benefits. Hailing from the economically devastated Rust Belt — northeast Ohio, Michigan and neighboring states — the Delphi workers had devoted decades of their lives as secretaries, technicians, engineers and sales employees. Some have watched up to 70 percent of their pensions vanish. They’ve banded together to seek justice in court and on Capitol Hill under the banner of the Delphi Salaried Retiree Association. Through two costly years of litigation and investigation, the Delphi workers have exposed how the stacked White House Auto Task Force schemed with union bosses to “cherry pick” (one Obama official’s own words) which financial obligations the new Government Motors company would assume and which they would abandon based on their political expedience. Obama’s own former auto czar Steve Rattner admitted in his recent memoir that “attacking the union’s sacred cow” could “jeopardize” the auto bailout deal. Ohio Republican Rep. Michael

Turner last month called attention to the glaring conflicts of interest that entangled Obama moneyman Tim Geithner’s multiple meddling roles in screwing over the Delphi workers. Geithner served simultaneously as co-chair of the Auto Task Force, board member of the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. (the federal agency overseeing pension payments to bankrupt companies) and Treasury secretary. The General Accounting Office raised eyebrows at Geithner’s “multiple roles” in the deal-making. Thanks to a separate Freedom of Information Act request filed by the Competitive Enterprise Institute, we already know that Geithner’s department and General Motors closely coordinated their PR strategy and collaborated on making fraudulent claims about GM repaying all of its government loans. The cash-strapped Delphi retirees are suing the transparencyducking PBGC in federal court to unearth documents that may yield key details of the improper Obama administration influence over Delphi’s bankruptcy organization. As ebullient UAW officials hooted and hollered on Tuesday, Obama smugly attacked Republicans for “anti-worker policies” and their “same old you’re-on-yourown philosophy.” The Delphi workers know better: One union’s government-subsidized, government-manipulated “success story” is the rest of the workforce’s nightmare.

Caucuses last stop before Super Tuesday State’s voters known for independence BY RACHEL LA CORTE THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OLYMPIA — The fight to emerge as the Republican challenger to Barack Obama turns next to Washington state — a Democratic bastion known not just for majestic mountain ranges and good coffee, but also for independent-minded voters. This Pacific Northwest state has a nonconformist streak and a rule that any registered voter can participate in the Republican contest, giving libertarianleaning Texas Rep. Ron Paul’s hope that he can engineer his first victory of the nomination race.

Paul’s investment But even though he had a strong showing here four years ago and is investing heavily in the state, Paul faces stiff challenges in Saturday’s statewide caucuses from GOP front-runner Mitt Romney, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. By Saturday, all four will have visited the state at least once, some twice. At first glance, Washington — a state that just

legalized gay marriage and has a labor-union, blue-collar history — would seem ill-fitting for Republicans to come courting voters. It’s voted exclusively Democratic in presidential elections since backing Ronald Reagan and has elected only Democratic governors for nearly 30 years. Its governor and two senators all are Democratic women, and most of its House members are Democrats. Yet Republicans have held the Secretary of State’s Office since the 1960s, illustrating the state’s proclivity for doing its own thing. “There is a real independent streak that runs through here,” said independent pollster Stuart Elway, noting that while

in contests thus far. Registered voters of all political stripes can participate in the caucuses, but they must sign an affidavit identifying themselves as Republican and promising not to participate in a caucus for another party. There’s also another possible explanation for the candidates competing for caucuses in which only about 50,000 people are expected to attend, according to one Republican official’s estimate. “It’s a psychological boost going into Super Tuesday if one candidate dominates or stands out,” state GOP Chairman Kirby Wilbur said. That may be particularly true in a contest as volatile as this, with Romney, San-

voting patterns lean Democratic, his polling has regularly shown that 45 percent of the population identifies as “independent,” compared with 35 percent who say they’re Democrats and 25 percent who identify as Republicans. There are a series of factors that explain the wooing by Republican candidates. The GOP race has turned into a drawn-out hunt for delegates instead of a contest where candidates build momentum by racking up a series of victories state by state and force opponents from the race. At stake are 40 delegates to the Republican national nominating convention later this summer, a cache second only to Florida’s 50

torum and Gingrich all having won previous contests.

Super Tuesday Washington’s contest is the last before 10 states vote Tuesday, offering a total of 419 delegates. Wyoming Republicans also will hold county conventions from Tuesday through March 10, with 12 delegates to the party’s national convention up for grabs. So it’s little wonder, then, why Paul, desperate for his first win, started running a TV ad in the state attacking his opponents and plans to return to hold a rally tonight in Seattle. Paul is the only candidate on the air, having spent roughly $40,000 to run ads on cable channels

in the state. A pro-Gingrich super PAC has spent only a fraction of that. Santorum, who visited the state in February, was back Thursday for rallies in the more conservative eastern region, while Romney, who has been working to build support from establishment Republicans here and rolled out dozens of local endorsements, planned to hit a fundraiser in Washington state the same day. Their visits come on the heels of one by Gingrich last week. Four years ago, Republican John McCain won the GOP caucuses, but just barely. He got 25 percent of the vote, just ahead of Mike Huckabee’s 23 percent and Paul’s 21.5 percent. This is the first year since 2004 that Republicans won’t hold a presidential preferential primary in addition to the caucuses. The primary was canceled this year for budgetary reasons, as was the one in 2004. Until 1992, the state relied solely on caucuses. But after 1988, when backers of television evangelist Pat Robertson swamped the meetings and ultimately took the nation’s largest Robertson delegation to the GOP convention in New Orleans, the Legislature quickly moved to create a presidential primary.

GOP caucuses slated across Peninsula on Saturday PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

Republican Party members across the North Olympic Peninsula will hold caucuses Saturday.

Library events celebrate Variety of events Dr. Seuss’ 108th birthday this weekend aim PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

Schools and libraries on the North Olympic Peninsula and across the nation are set to celebrate the birthday of the man who wrote The Lorax and other children’s favorites. Today, many elementary schools — including schools in the Port Angeles, Port Townsend and Cape Flattery districts — are having special events to mark the 108th birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss. On Saturday, The Harmonica Pocket! will present “Get Loose with Seuss” at the Port Angeles and Sequim libraries. Geisel, born March 2, 1904, in Springfield, Mass., wrote more than 60 children’s books during his life, using the pen name Dr. Seuss for all of the books he both wrote and illustrated and the name Theo LeSieg for books he wrote but others illustrated.

Enduring classics Among his enduring classics are The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, Horton Hears a Who!, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, The Lorax and Yertle the Turtle and Other Stories.

Sirius prowls southern Peninsula sky PENINSULA DAILY NEWS NEWS SERVICES

Spring is fast approaching, but the stars of winter still dominate the North Olympic Peninsula’s evening sky. Throughout March, Sirius, the brightest star in the sky, shines prominently in the south shortly after sunset, while Orion, the celestial hunter, floats high to its right. The reason Sirius appears as the brightest star is not because it is particularly bright. It’s plenty big — roughly twice the diameter of our sun — but millions of stars are bigger and brighter, some of them tremendously so. Sirius appears so bright because it’s so close, less than 9 light-years away. Sirius shines so brightly in the winter sky not because it is bigger than In astronomical terms, the other stars but because it is so close — only 9 light years away. that makes it practically a Venus, is the planet Jupiter. next-door neighbor.

Space anniversaries

the Gemini flights and the first two manned Apollo flights. The nicknaming tradition returned in March 1969, when the Apollo 9 crew — James McDivitt, Dave Scott and Rusty Schweickart — whimsically named their command module “Gumdrop” and the lunar module “Spider.” Apollo 9 was the first manned flight of the lunar module. Although the mission wasn’t nearly as dramatic as the flight of Apollo 8 around the moon a few months earlier, it was far more hazardous. McDivitt and Schweickart flew Spider, which could not re-enter the Earth’s atmosphere, more than 100 miles away from Gumdrop. The flight was the last major hurdle before the historic Apollo 11 lunar landing four months later. Grissom, one of the original NASA Project Mercury astronauts and second American to fly in space, was killed along with fellow astronauts Ed White and Roger Chaffee during a prelaunch test for the Apollo 1 mission at Cape Kennedy on Jan. 27, 1967.

On March 23, 1965, Gus Grissom and John Young lifted off from Cape Kennedy aboard Gemini 3. It was America’s first two-man spaceflight. During their nearly fivehour flight, the crew put their capsule through its paces, showing for the first time that astronauts could maneuver a spacecraft in orbit. They also took a few bites of a corned-beef sandwich that Young had smuggled on board. (After the flight, he was reprimanded by NASA brass.) Grissom nicknamed the capsule “Molly Brown” (after the hit Broadway show “The Unsinkable Molly Brown”), a wry reference to his first flight in 1961, when his Mercury capsule sank shortly after _________ splashdown. Unhappy with his choice, Starwatch usually appears in NASA did away with nick- the Peninsula Daily News the first names for the remainder of Friday of every month.

Briefly . . . Day of Prayer slated today at PA church PORT ANGELES — A World Day of Prayer celebration will be held at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, 510 E. Park Ave., at noon today. The service is sponsored by the Women of Malaysia with the theme “Let Justice Prevail.” The facility is handicapaccessible. A luncheon will be provided after the service. The World Day of Prayer is a worldwide ecumenical movement of Christian women of many traditions who come together to observe a common day of prayer each year the first Friday of March. The World Day of Prayer was founded on the idea that prayer and action are inseparable in the service of God’s kingdom. For more information, phone Von Markley at 360457-2805 or Karen Agee at 360-565-1423.

For this Lenten season, the service will be held in a round style rather than the traditional theater-style configuration. This arrangement is designed to enhance the more personal, informal nature of the Taize experience. Prayer, silence and simple chanted songs, together with psalm singing and Scripture readings, create a comfortable meditative experience. This simple style of worship was founded in France following World War II and has spread all over the world. For more information, phone the church at 360457-4862.

Morning prayer services will be held at 8 a.m. Tuesdays until March 27.

Church benefit set QUILCENE — Quilcene First Presbyterian Church, 294433 U.S. Highway 101, will host a barbecue beef/ pork benefit dinner from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Thursday. Proceeds will enable local youths to attend the NW Presbyterian Church Camp at Tall Timbers near Lake Wenatchee. Donations will be accepted. The event is open to the public.

Tall tales Each candidate would be asked to tell a personal hunting or fishing story. Undoubtedly, this would be the most time-consuming portion of the program. If a candidate did not have a well-crafted hunting or fishing story that was almost too good to be true — Uptha Creek. While taking the oath to become president of the United States, incoming presidents have traditionally (with a couple of exceptions) placed their left hand on the Bible while raising their right hand to recite the oath. To address the topic of faith, particularly Christian faith, the candidates would be asked if they would continue this tradition and explain why or why not. Candidates choosing to forgo this tradition might want to bring their own paddle so they are not caught Uptha Creek without one. If you find flaws in my thinking, be consoled knowing that I am not running for president and that Uptha Creek is familiar territory for me. “I hope you will put up with a little of my foolishness; but you are already doing that” (2 Corinthians 11:1).

Knowing that candidates carefully scrutinizes each other’s history, I would ask each candidate to extend one kind remark about each opponent’s political career. No kindness? Uptha Creek — kindly, of course. Humility is a good attribute for any leader. Each candidate would be asked to reveal a political mistake he or she had made and what was learned from that mistake. If he or she paused too long to answer the question — Uptha Creek. Each candidate would be asked to name three American core values and speak for five minutes on one of those core values. If any articles of the United States Constitution were not mentioned — Uptha Creek. With an Uptha Creek economy, each candidate would be asked how the economy could become more like nearby Itsa Creek. Responses using the words “trickle down” or “dam removal” would earn extra points simply for their local metaphorical relevance. Economic problems involving trillions of dollars are difficult to comprehend. I would ask each candidate how to spend $100 to make the country a better place to live in. If a candidate referred to my $100 instead of his or her $100 — Uptha Creek. Applying to be the commander in chief of the most

powerful Reynolds military in the world, the candidates would be asked to articulate how they are qualified for that position and state their favorite weapon. Candidates revealing firepower to protect their own homes would increase their credibility to protect this country. Being president of the United States is a very serious position to hold. But if people don’t have a sense of humor, they are very boring and make poor leaders. Each candidate would be asked to tell his or her favorite joke. This would be a tense moment. Humor is often disparaging, and ethnic jokes abound. Self-deprecating humor might be the safest, but do people really want safe? Regardless, if the candidate can’t tell a good joke — Uptha Creek. The art of political persuasion often requires the ability to speak in a manner that is simultaneously believable and unbelievable. This form of speaking is intuitive to people who hunt and fish.

Mideast tension may mean $5 a gallon month of regular unleaded gasoline, a 50-cent increase in price means an extra expense of $30 a month. The prospect of such a price increase underscores the political and economic risks that Western political leaders must contend with as they decide how to address the Iran situation.

If Israel attacks Iran, look for gas prices to increase BY CLIFFORD KRAUSE THE NEW YORK TIMES

NEW YORK — Gasoline for $5 a gallon? The possibility is hardly far-fetched. With no clear end to tensions with Iran and Syria and rising demand from countries like China, gas prices are already at record highs for the winter months — averaging $4.32 in California and $3.73 a gallon nationally, according to AAA’s Daily Fuel Gauge Report. When the summer holiday season nears, demand for gasoline generally rises, typically pushing prices up

around 20 cents a gallon. And gas prices could rise another 50 cents a gallon or more, analysts say, if the diplomatic and economic standoff over Iran’s nuclear ambitions escalates into military conflict or there is some other major supply disruption.

‘Push up 25 percent’ “If we get some kind of explosion — like an Israeli attack or some local Iranian revolutionary guard decides to take matters in his own hands and attacks a tanker — than we’d see oil prices

Chrysler sales jump 40 percent DETROIT — Chrysler’s U.S. sales jumped 40 percent in February, kicking off what is expected to be another strong month. The company sold nearly 134,000 new cars and trucks as all of its brands showed at least double-digit increases. Chrysler was the first automaker to report sales Thursday. Analysts were forecasting a 3 percent increase for the industry, and all major automakers except General Motors Co. were expected to post higher sales. The Associated Press

for European nations struggling to deal with the Continent’s debt crisis. The Federal Reserve chairman, Ben S. Bernanke, told a House committee Wednesday that rising global oil prices were “likely to push up inflation temporarily while reducing consumers’ purchasing power.” He maintained the Fed’s forecast that the nation’s economy would grow 2.2 percent to 2.7 percent this year. The Iran situation has raised the price of crude oil as much as 20 percent. Although prices plunged late in 2008 as the financial crisis took its toll and the recession deepened, that kind of sharp increase could happen again as summer approaches.

Analysts expected a 5.6 percent increase for the four weeks that ended Feb. 25, according to a survey by Thomson Reuters.

AT&T relents NEW YORK — AT&T Inc. caved to complaints that it’s placing unreasonable limits on the “unlimited data” plans it offers smartphone subscribers. The cellphone company said Thursday that from now on, it will only slow down service for its “unlimited data” subscribers when they hit 3 gigabytes of usage within a billing cycle. Previously, the company had been throttling service when subscribers entered the heaviest 5 percent of data users for that month and that area. There was no way for subscribers to find out ahead of time what the limit was. AT&T would send a warning by text message to people who approached the limit. The data throttling

Deadline set to file for conservation district PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — Sequim-area resident Don Hatler has been re-elected to the Clallam Conservation District board of supervisors. Hatler was the only candidate to file for the office In addition, the Clallam Conservation District board of supervisors appointed Linda Barnfather of Sequim to fill the remaining two years of Ashley Merscher’s

three-year elected term. According to state conservation district elections rules (WAC 135-110-320), if the incumbent is the only eligible candidate to file for the position, no election is required. Polling, which had been scheduled for March 19, will therefore not be performed. The appointed position currently held by Sequimarea dairy farmer Ben Smith expires this year.

Smith has submitted his application for re-appointment. The deadline for applications to the appointed position is March 31.

Applications An application form and instructions can be found on the Conservation District’s website at www. or on the Conservation Commission’s

website at Five positions comprise the conservation district board of supervisors. Three are elected and two are appointed by the Washington State Conservation Commission. Each serves a three-year term of office without compensation. The conservation district board of supervisors identifies local conservation needs, establishes goals and

oversees the implementation of plans to conserve soil, water, wildlife and other renewable natural resources. They employ four staff, one of which is half-time, and oversee an annual budget from $1 million to $2 million. More than 90 percent of the district’s revenue comes in the form of grants. The conservation district is scheduled to update its

five-year plan for natural resource conservation in 2012. The five-year plan serves as the guide for annual work plans and grant submissions. The Board of Supervisors holds a public meeting on the second Tuesday of each month at 3 p.m. at the Clallam Conservation District office located at 1601 E. Front St. in Port Angeles.

Foundation establishes scholarship PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

SEQUIM — The Sequim Education Foundation has come up with a new annual event and a new $1,000 scholarship to a Sequim High School graduate choosing to pursue studies in music or the performing arts. “I couldn’t find the words to adequately express our thanks to the artists who performed at SEF Variety Show,” Sequim Education Foundation President Dick Hughes said. “So many people did so much to help SEF and our public school kids.” Board members proposed that SEF offer a $1,000 scholarship from the proceeds of the benefit show. The resolution passed unanimously and a Variety Show Performer’s Appreciation Trust Fund was established. It was decided to continue the SEF Variety Show as an annual event and award the scholarship yearly to honor performers in each show. “The scholarship is an appropriate way for SEF to express its appreciation and is consistent with the purpose of the foundation,” SEF Scholarship Chairman Albert Friess said. The 2012 scholarship will honor those who worked with SEF to plan the show and direct its production. It will name masters of ceremonies Carol Swarbrick and Jim Dries, and stage manager Patsy Mattingley as well as feature each of the acts performing in the show, including comic Bud Davies the Ventriloquist, the Sequim High School Jazz Band, vocalists Amanda Bacon and Sarah Shea, Readers Theatre Plus, the Olympic Express Big Band, Sequim High School Trash Can Band, Olympic Mountain Cloggers, Sequim High School Select Choir and the Sequim City Band. Students who helped with the production will receive commendations of record from SEF. These include cheerleaders Mackenzie Hagstrom and Stephanie Laurie, spotlight operators Samantha Schock and Kelley Anders and stagehands Matthew Schock, Zachary Rigg and Benjamin Hughes. Sequim Education Foundation is a nonprofit public charity dedicated to inspiring Sequim students to achieve excellence. For more information, visit

Good time to fish steelies PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

THE WEST-END RIVERS are in good shape, the weather is supposed to be decent this weekend, the steelhead are big and they are biting. Plus they seem to be plentiful in all the rivers. That makes steelhead the best bet this weekend as long as the winds and storms continue to make blackmouth salmon fishing difficult in the saltwater. The salmon are there but the onagain, off-again heavy winds this past week have made saltwater fishing a touch-and-go proposition. But anglers brave enough to go out between storms have been catching nice-sized winter blackmouth, Brian Menkal of Brian’s Sporting Goods and More (360-683-1950) in Sequim said. But let’s get to the good news first. “People are going out to the west for the steelhead,” Menkal said. “I have been getting conflicting weather reports [for the west end] for the weekend,” Menkal said. “One says it is supposed to be showers [Thursday] through the weekend and the other says it is supposed to be nice. “If it’s nice, this would be a great weekend to go steelhead fishing. The rivers should be dropping nicely.” Bob Gooding of Olympic Sporting Goods (360-374-6330) in Forks, who lives and works in steelhead country, said it is a perfect time to fish steelhead. “It’s cool out here right now, light gray, but really pretty nice,” Gooding said Thursday afternoon. “We’re supposed to get rain [in the near future] but we’re not expecting to get that much.” The rivers are in great shape and they’re all producing fish, Gooding added. “The Sol Duc’s been good, Hoh has been pretty decent, and Bogachiel and all of them are still kicking out some fish,” Gooding said. “The Sol Duc is still the best.” The Sol Duc still attracts the bulk of anglers, and for very good reason. “There’s a saying that you ‘don’t ever leave good fishing to look for good fishing,’ ” Gooding said. “As long as the Sol Duc is kicking out fish, the fishermen will continue to fish it.” Menkal also has heard that all the rivers out west are producing. “It’s a good time to fish the Bogachiel, it has fish in it, and the Hoh and the Sol Doc have fish in them.”

Short spring forces changes M’s preparing for Japan trip in late March THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PEORIA, Ariz. — This hasn’t been a typical spring for the Seattle Mariners, who got off to an early start and have worked through a condensed schedule as they prepare to open the regular season in Japan. They crammed four intrasquad games into five days this week to try to give players as much game action as possible with fewer spring training games on the schedule. On Thursday, they finally got a day off. “There’s some challenges, but nothing we won’t be able to handle,” manager Eric Wedge said. “The intrasquad games are an important part of this, because we needed to do that. Once we get into spring training games, then we get into our routine a little bit. “Nothing’s going to surprise us. We know when we’re leaving for Japan, we know what we’re going to be doing over there, we know what we’re going to be doing when we get back. “So we’re prepared for it.” The Mariners will be in Japan from March 22 to March 30, the latter part of the spring training game schedule. Their trip will feature a pair of exhibition games against Jap-

As a result, the Mariners opened camp earlier than every other major-league team. The first workout for pitchers and catchers was Feb. 12. The Mariners and A’s will also be the first teams to play a spring game when they face each other today. Two Mariners who did not have the day off Thursday were ace Felix Hernandez and catcher Miguel Olivo.

Hernandez was scheduled for a simulated game during which he was to pitch two innings. The intrasquad games allowed the Mariners to get an early look at what figures to be the top of their order in Japan and heading into April — Chone Figgins in the leadoff spot, Dustin Ackley batting second and Ichiro batting third, out of his customary leadoff role. Ackley, 24, became the team’s everyday second baseman after a call-up last June and wound up hitting .273 over 90 games. He was used primarily as the

No. 3 man in the order last season. “The biggest thing I want to accomplish is just getting physically stronger,” Ackley said. “I feel like last year I didn’t finish the year quite as strong as I’d like just because physically, I felt like I broke down.” Ackley, knowing the Mariners are big in Japan, is excited to go there, but perhaps not as much as newly acquired pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma, who will be returning to his homeland.

Windy days Saltwater fishing is a different story these days thanks to that nasty wind coming and going this past week. “Saltwater fishing has been tough,” Menkal said. “That wind has been brutal.” Still, some brave souls are going out and getting some good-sized salmon. “Some guys are getting fish in front of Sequim,” Menkal said. “One guy has been getting a fish every day.” The anglers are going out between storms when the wind is calm. “There is so much wind that it makes it tough for fishing,” Menkal said. “They are coming from the northeast at times, the west.” All is not lost, though, for anglers set on fishing for salmon, according to Menkal. “This is a good time to clean up your gear and get the boat and trailer ready,” he said. “Clean your reels and get the leaders tied.”

Barrichello changes IndyCar drive teams THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAO PAULO — Formula One veteran Rubens Barrichello announced Thursday he will join the IndyCar series this season.

Neah Bay 51, Mt. Rainier 47 SPOKANE — The good news is that the Red Devils won’t have to face two-time defending state champion Sunnyside Christian in the championship semifinals today. Sunnyside Christian beat Neah Bay 55-50 in the state title game a year ago. The bad news is that Neah Bay will have to contend with third-ranked Valley Christian, the team that defeated Sunnyside in the quarterfinals, this afternoon. The Red Devils will take the news with smiles after advancing themselves. Neah Bay is a step closer to its second state title of the school year after getting by Mount Rainier Lutheran on Thursday morning at Spokane Arena in the state quarterfinals. Zeke Greene scored the go-ahead basket with a minute left, carrying Neah Bay to the championship semifinals of the Class 1B boys state tournament. Tyler McCaulley scored 15 for the Red Devils (20-3). McCaulley was 5 for 5 in 3-pointers in the first half. McCaulley’s high-ankle

sprain is much better. “Tyler is moving a lot better and he’s feeling good,” Neah Bay coach Gerrad Brooks said. The Hawks (22-3), led by David Greenwood’s 26 points, will meet defending champion Sunnyside Christian in the loser-out consolation semifinals this morning. Greenwood is a power forward who kept Mount Rainier in the game. “He’s their key to everything,” Brooks said. A 3-pointer by Zeke Greene tied the game at 47-all with 1:32 left. After a miss by Mount Rainier Lutheran, Greene followed with a baseline drive that put the Red Devils up 49-47. A turnover on Mount Rainier Lutheran’s next possession led to two foul shots by Johnny Smith with 6.3 seconds left that sealed the game. Neah Bay got 11 points from Michael Dulik and 10 from Zeke Greene. Carston Neumiller added 14 points for Mount Rainier Lutheran, which also lost to the Red Devils in the Tri-District tournament two weeks ago.

Neah Bay’s semifinal opponent, Valley Christian, is a tall team that likes to get the ball inside. The Red Devils, meanwhile, likes to use the length of the court to take advantage of their speed. “This will be a clash of wills,” Brooks said about the differing styles of play. “You want to impose your will on the other team.” The Red Devils have been pretty good about that most of the year. Neah Bay is ready for the challenge. “The kids are feeling good, and the good thing is that we know we can play better,” Brooks said. “I’m really happy with this team’s ability to step up. The kids have an undying will to play basketball.” That is not good news for Valley Christian. Today’s game starts at 3:45 p.m. Neah Bay 51, Mt. Rainier 47 Neah Bay Mt. Rainier

Outdoors: Some head out to fish area lakes CONTINUED FROM B8 PA fishing derby “It’s been pretty quiet here,” Donalynn Olson of Olson’s Resort (360-9632311). “A couple of fish were caught Saturday. I’m sure we have good fishing, everything points to it, but the weather isn’t helping.”

Freshwater lakes It’s not too early to hit some of the year-round lakes in the area to try for trout, bass, bluegill and other kinds of freshwater fish. “Some people are braving the weather to go fishing in lakes,” Menkal said. “Some guys have caught fish in Leland Lake.” Leland, located in Jefferson County close to U.S. Highway 101 and Snow Creek Road, has six species of fish, including catfish, bass, bluegill and trout. Another good place to try your luck for freshwater fish is just west of Port Angeles called Pooh’s Ponds, where anglers pay for the opportunity to fish steelhead (catch-andrelease) and a couple of species of rainbow trout. “It is a great place to go,” Menkal said. “It’s great fun.” Bob Triggs wrote on the Internet about Pooh’s Ponds a few years ago: “It is Pay-to-Play. Backyard. Very small. Great for teaching someone how to hook and land a lot of fish in a day. I remember it was very inexpensive. “A friend took me up there on a birthday and I caught an 11-pound steelhead in that little lower pond.” Here’s some directions from Triggs to Pooh’s Ponds: “Head west of Port Angeles on route U.S. Highway 101. “At state route 112, you go right. “After crossing the Elwha River, you will go about a mile or so and you will see a four-way intersection at “Place Road” (I believe that Place Road is on the right.) “You go left there. “It’s up the road a ways, a residential rural area, a few miles maybe. There are some signs. It will be on the left.”

Don’t forget about the ongoing Port Angeles Salmon Club’s monthly Salmon/Halibut Derby in the Port Angeles area that started in February and continues through October. The club pays out for the top four fish each month. Depending on the season, it’s either salmon or halibut that get put on the ladder. Tickets cost $40, which also includes entry in the Salmon Club’s Memorial Day weekend halibut derby. Actually, the tickets are for the Memorial Day derby and double for the monthly derby. The tickets can be bought at derby headquarters, Swain’s General Store (360-452-2357) at 602 E. First St. in Port Angeles. Swain’s also is the weigh-in station. Prize money is $100 for first, $75 for second, $50 for third and $25 for fourth. The derby area is Marine Area 6, which includes Port Angeles and Freshwater Bay. The seasons include blackmouth salmon now through April 10, halibut in May and June (there’s a two-day halibut season in June), then back to salmon in July through midAugust (kings), September (silvers) and October (kings and silvers). The Memorial Day Halibut Derby does not count toward the monthly derby.

Puget Sound Anglers Tom Burlingame of Excel Fishing Charters will be the guest speaker at the March 15 meeting of the Puget Sound AnglersNorth Olympic Peninsula Chapter (360-582-0836). Burlingame’s 20 years of Puget Sound fishing provides his customers with outstanding success rates for salmon, halibut, ling cod and bottom fish off the northwest Washington coast. The meeting will offer information on fishing techniques and opportunities with Excel Charters out of Neah Bay at 6:45 p.m. at Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 S. Blake Ave., Sequim.

No. 2 Stanford women smash Seattle Redhawks 76-52 THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

STANFORD, Calif. — For 17 minutes Seattle outhustled, outshot and outplayed the second-ranked team in the country. It’s that type of effort the

Redhawks will need next year when they end their status as a Division I independent and begin playing in the Western Athletic Conference. “I’m never happy after a

loss but I’m really proud of the effort our kids gave,” coach Joan Bonvicini said after Seattle’s 76-52 loss to Stanford on Wednesday night. “We played hard and we competed but Stanford’s

tough and there’s a reason why they’re No. 2 in the country.” Bonvicini should know. She spent 17 seasons at Arizona and coached against Cardinal coach

Tara VanDerveer numerous times. Bonvicini’s final season with the Wildcats was also Nnemkadi Ogwumike’s first with Stanford, so she knew what to expect. “It’s great being back

here but having coached against the Ogwumikes, I said, ‘Joan, you’re not going to like this,’” Bonvicini said. “We rushed a little bit in the second half but that’s Stanford.”

Fun ’n’ Advice






DEAR ABBY: I have been married 18 years. In that time, my husband has been unfaithful twice. Last week, I was going through his cellphone and noticed from his emails that he had registered on a dating service and was exchanging photos with four women. I threw him out of the house. What really upsets me is my 17-year-old son knew about the affairs and thinks it’s perfectly normal for his dad to have female “friends” while we were still living together. I don’t like what my soon-to-be-ex did to me, and I don’t want my son thinking it’s OK to start looking while you’re still married. My son finds ways to excuse his father’s behavior. How can I make him understand that looking for other partners while you’re married is being unfaithful? Texas Wife Who’s Had It

people are putting ideas in my head. I tell her it’s her behavior that makes me think she’s hiding something. What should I do? Suspicious in Buffalo

Dear Suspicious: Something strange is going on. A drastic change in someone’s behavior is legitimate cause for concern. Clearly your girlfriend has a secret. She may be seeing someone, or there’s something else she doesn’t want you to see. You are overdue in getting to the bottom of it, so stop allowing her to put you on the defensive, even if it means ending the relationship. Dear Abby: My husband and I received a wedding gift in the form of a donation to a religious organization in honor of our nuptials. I am strongly opposed to this organization because it excludes women from its primary mission due to beliefs I do not share. Having found this gesture to be offensive, how do I acknowledge this “gift”? Not in My Name Dear Not in My Name: What a peculiar gift for a wedding. Usually couples receive an item for which they registered or something they can use or enjoy together. It appears that rather than give you a gift, your guest gave himself/ herself a tax deduction. For the sake of good manners, write the person a short note saying, “Thank you for sharing our special day with us.”

Dear Abby: My girlfriend and I have been dating for four years. In the beginning, we’d split our visits between her house and mine because we live 100 miles apart. Two years ago, she stopped wanting me to come to her house. She’d say it was dirty or that she didn’t want anyone there. When we plan to have me go there, the day arrives, and she says she wants to break up with me because I insist on visiting her. Over the past year and a half, I have been to her place only three times. She hemmed and hawed but finally allowed it. She claims there’s no reason she’s acting this way, that I’m crazy and

Rose is Rose


Dear Had It: That may not be easy. Your husband, by making your son his co-conspirator (“It’ll just be between us guys”), has made him a member of the “boys club” and cliqued you out. Has your son not seen how painful this has been for you? Your almost ex-husband is a terrible role model. When your son follows in Dad’s footsteps — and there is every reason to believe he will — he will never have a successful marriage of his own.

As an upper-air trough continues moving off to the east, a warm front will enter British Columbia, riding over an offshore ridge. This front will result in a mostly cloudy day across the Peninsula with showers. Snow levels will start around 1,500 feet but rise over the course of the day. Precipitation will become steadier at night as snow levels continue to rise, reaching over 2,500 feet. By the time the system departs on Saturday, up to 2 inches of rain will have fallen. Temperatures will rise through the weekend.

Dreamdream a little

Artistic reveries intertwine downtown during Port Townsend Gallery Walk






PORT TOWNSEND — The futuristic, the dreamy and the literary will commingle in downtown Port Townsend this Saturday night. Gallery Nine, with featured artist Cynthia Thomas, is providing the dreamy stuff: sculptures and tableaux with names like “Pinhead’s Dream,” “All Made Up and No Place to Go” and “So, Who Are You Working for Anyway?” Gallery Nine, at 1012 Water St., is just one of the stops on the first-Saturday Gallery Walk, a free event from 5 p.m. till 8 p.m. Thomas and other members of the artists’ cooperative will be on hand at the venue, which is also the display space all month for Nancy Cherry Eifert’s photographs of Sekiu, the Seattle Aquarium otter pup. Also open for the evening is the Port Townsend Gallery, 715 Water St., where the art highlights “the future of the past,” as spokesperson Dawn Sagar puts it. Inside the gallery are a Rail Zeppelin, a Dymaxion car, images of Seattle’s Space Needle and spacey felt hats from featured artists Carol Stabile, Lyn Anju, and Haden Starbuck. Refreshments with a “past future” theme will flow Saturday evening.

PT Shorts from Key City Meanwhile, at the Cotton Building at the corner of Water and Madison streets, Key City Public Theatre will present PT Shorts, an hour-long literary reading by local actors. This time around the players are offering short tastes of Winterkill, Port Townsend’s new Community Read book. The novel by Craig Lesley is the story of Danny Kachiah, a mostly Nez Perce Native American who lives on a reservation near Pendleton, Ore., supporting himself with his earnings as a rodeo cowboy. In the PT Shorts reading at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, actors Catherine McNabb, Don White and Nancy Muir will also read excerpts from Talking Leaves, an anthology of stories written by Native Americans, from Storm Riders, another novel by Lesley, and from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Ken Kesey’s novel narrated by “the Chief.” Admission is free to PT Shorts, and details about it and other Key City presentations awaits at and 360-379-0195. To find out more about the March shows at the Port Townsend Gallery and Gallery Nine — both open seven days a week — see or phone 360-379-8110 and visit Gallery-9. com or phone 360-379-8881.


“Releasing the Dream” by Cynthia Thomas awaits inside Gallery Nine in Port Townsend, where the gallery stroll takes place Saturday night.




Elemental It’s

‘Paper, Rock, Wood’ part of First Friday Art Walk BY DIANE URBANI




SEQUIM — “A Visitor,” luminous and golden, looks like the sun at first. But that’s not who we’re beholding. “The ‘Visitor’ is moon . . . one of the most welcomed to our single, multi-purpose living room,” said the painting’s creator, Ryoko Toyama of Sequim. The moon “comes in freely, with a flood of transparent colors; it lit up the space and my heart.” “A Visitor” is now lighting up another space, during tonight’s First Friday Art Walk and throughout March. It’s on display with other watercolors by Toyama and sculptures by her fellow featured artist, Janine Hegy, in a monthlong show titled “Paper, Rock, Wood.”

The pictures highlight “the fragility of everything around us,” Johnson said. Her skill comes from studying photography at the Pennsylvania College of Art and Design, and from her belief in taking time to truly see the beauty of water and its creatures. “If you stop, and look and wait, you will see so much more,” she said.

Walk colors

Tonight’s art walk around downtown Sequim, organized in part by Renne Brock-Richmond, is the next in a series with a color theme. February was red, in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, and now March’s color is green, for spring and St. Patrick’s Day.

Production hurls cast from 1950s into 1970s PENINSULA SPOTLIGHT

SEQUIM â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the 1950s, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a little town at a little radio station â&#x20AC;&#x201D; KSNAP â&#x20AC;&#x201D; about to go on the air with a variety show. Suddenly, the stage beneath the station starts to shake; the overhead

lights flash off. And on. And off again. Then, with a roaring whoosh, the whole varietyshow cast is hurled forward into the future, to an age of music they could never have imagined.

Musical battle Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the 1970s, and the time-traveling troupe is shocked, shocked, as they

discover two nightclubs locked in a war of dances. This is a fierce musical battle, and nobody knows who will come out on top. So goes the story of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The KSNAP Variety Show: The Battle Between Funk and Disco,â&#x20AC;? to unfold at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. this Saturday at Olympic Theatre Arts, 414 N. Sequim Ave. Mosaic, the organization formerly known as SNAP

â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Special Needs Advocacy Parents â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is presenting its third annual theater production.

Formed in 1998 Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of many activities the nonprofit group, formed in 1998, organizes to include people with developmental disabilities in community life. Other services include

life skills classes, family education and a summer camp for people with disabilities. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Battle Between Funk and Discoâ&#x20AC;? cast, known as the Snappy Players, includes Cassie Puff, Marjorie Mougel, Joy Morrill and Bonnie Cates; together they bring the 1950s and the 1970s to life, pulsing of course with the vintage music from

each decade. The burning questions of the play include: Will KSNAPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s broadcasters ever see their beloved â&#x20AC;&#x2122;50s again? And will they ever learn the dance moves to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Funky Townâ&#x20AC;?? Admission to the show is a suggested $6 donation to benefit Mosaic.
