Navy, environmental group agree to pact Deal affects Dabob range By Jeff Chew

Peninsula Daily News

QUILCENE — The Navy and The Nature Conservancy have entered into a five-year agreement that they said benefits the environment and protects the Navy’s underwater research range on Dabob Bay. The Navy agreed to provide $3 million for a Navy/conservancy partnership to acquire interests

in land around Navy installations to protect underwater ranges, including Dabob Bay. The money will allow for Navy acquisition of land to set aside for preservation and future Navy access, acquisitions to come later, a Navy official said. “There is still a lot up in the air,” said Liane Nakahara, Navy Region Northwest spokeswoman, adding that the Navy and conservancy were merely announcing the new agreement. Shellfish-rich Dabob Bay is one of the most pristine, least developed and ecologically impor-

tant estuaries in Hood Canal and Puget Sound. The state Department of Natural Resources established the Dabob Bay Natural Area in 1984 to protect rare examples of intact salt marsh and sand-spit plant communities. Initially created as a natural area preserve, the site was enlarged in 2009 to include additional land designated as a preserve, along with lands designated as natural resources conservation area. This provides additional opportunities for lowimpact public use. Turn

Recession? Nonprofits raise money Jefferson groups count success despite the times By Charlie Bermant Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — Local nonprofit organizations say they are optimistic about their ability to raise donations despite times of economic belt-tightening. “Right now, we are in a good spot in our fundraising since we had a successful summer,” said Centrum Executive Director John MacElwee. “We are optimistic because a lot of people wait until the end of the year to contribute.” Centrum is holding its primary fundraising event at 5:30 p.m. Saturday in the commons at Fort Worden State Park. Consisting of a posh dinn­er at $125 a plate, an auction and entertainment, the event is projected to raise about $180,000 — approximately one-third of the arts organization’s annual budget. “The gala gives our comm­unity an opportunity to celebrate Centrum’s miss­ ion of changing lives through artistic experiences,” MacElwee said. “It also serves the purpose of raising needed funds for our programs, in addition to raising scholarship funds for creative students who would not otherwise be able to experience Centrum programs and events.”

PORT TOWNSEND — One month after the foreclosure of Clam Cannery by Columbia Bank, there are two programs available to help those who had made reservations to stay in the now-bankrupt waterfront complex. A phone number has been posted on the entrance doors for

any guest with a reservation to make other arrangements. And Groupon, the Chicagobased online coupon sales firm that offered a discount deal last January, said it will provide full refunds for anyone who participated in the deal. “We have no records from the former owner as to how many reservations or events were planned,” said Re/Max First agent Teren MacLeod of Port Townsend.. “We want to be as helpful as possible so they might find other arrangements.” MacLeod said her agency cannot provide any refunds or guarantees but hopes to “provide help

to someone who gets there at 9 at night and doesn’t have a place to go.” A flier with a phone number and a website to book alternate lodging is posted on all the facilities’ entrances. Groupon is proactively seeking out people who participated in the Clam Cannery deal and providing full refunds. Groupon offers a daily discount of a service, collecting the money directly. In January the site offered a single night’s stay in the hotel for $124 — 66 percent less than the regular $349 price for that particular room. Turn

AL DAVIS, 82, was a rebel with a cause — “Just win, baby” he exhorted his beloved Oakland Raiders. And as the NFL well knows, he was also a rebel with a subpoena. Mr. Davis, who bucked league Mr. Davis authority in 2003 time and again and won three Super Bowl titles during his halfcentury in professional football, died Saturday. The Hall of Famer died at his home in Oakland, Calif., the team said. The cause of death was not immediately disclosed. Mr. Davis was one of the most important figures in pro football history from his role in the development of the AFL, the merger with the NFL and the succ­ess he built on the field with the Raiders. Mr. Davis was a litigious gadfly. That was most evident during the 1980s when he went to court — and won — for the right to move his team from Oakland to Los Angeles. Even after he moved the Raiders back to the Bay Area in 1995, he sued for $1.2 billion to establish that he still owned the rights to

the L.A. market. Before that, though, he was a pivotal figure in hastening the merger between the AFL — where he served as commissioner — and the more established NFL. Mr. Davis was not initially in favor of a merger, but his aggressive pursuit of NFL players for his fledgling league and team helped bring about the eventual 1970 combination of the two leagues into what is now the most popular sport in the country.


ROGER WILLIAMS, 87, the virtuoso pianist who topped the Billboard pop chart in the 1950s and played for nine U.S. presidents during a long career, died Saturday. Williams died at his home in Los Angeles of complications from pancreatic cancer, according to his former publicist, Rob Wilcox. Known as an electrifying stage performer and an adept improviser, Mr. Williams effortlessly switched between musical styles. “Roger was one of the greatest pianists in the world and could play anything to classical music to jazz. He was one of the greatest personalities I’ve

ever known,” said Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, a longtime friend of Mr. Williams and himself a musician. Mr. Williams in 2004 Mr. Williams’ 1955 hit “Autumn Leaves” was the only piano instrumental to reach No. 1 on the Billboard pop charts. It remains the best-selling piano record of all time, with more than 2 million sold.

Briefly: Nation Lava builds in volcano; could threaten planes ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Lava has reached the edge of a crater in a volcano in Alaska’s remote Aleutian Islands, indicating the mountain could explode and send up an ash cloud that could threaten aircraft. The Alaska Volcano Observatory said satellite images show lava at the edge of the crater rim of 5,675-foot Cleveland Mountain on uninhabited on Chuginadak Island, about 940 miles southwest of Anchorage. Volcano monitors say if the dome continues to grow, it could overflow the rim and increase the possibility of an explosion. The observatory says an eruption could send up an ash cloud 20,000 feet or more. The nearest village, Nikolski, is on another island about 50 miles east and has 18 permanent residents. The village was not considered in harm’s way in previous eruptions of the volcano.

Religion unavoidable in GOP president race By Charles Babington and Kasie Hunt The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney on Saturday denounced “poisonous language” against faiths as he grappled with a flare-up over religion sparked by a prominent supporter of Texas Gov. Rick Perry, his rival. Perry steered well clear of that simmering issue and pushed another hot button instead: Social Security. Romney, in remarks to the Values Voters Summit, a gathering of cultural conservatives in Washington, did not directly confront the words of a prominent Perry supporter who called Romney’s Mormon faith a “cult.” Indeed, Romney was criticizing another speaker at the meeting who is known for anti-Mormon and anti-Muslim rhetoric, and who followed him on stage. But his cautionary words

served as notice that attacks on faiths should, in his view, be off the table. He appealed to the social conservatives to support a presidential candidate who has the best record on the economy. Until now, Romney’s Mormon faith and Perry’s evangelical Christianity were secondary to a GOP primary focused on who can best fix the country’s economy.

Faith as an issue Questions about his faith plagued Romney’s 2008 presidential run, but he had been able to keep them at bay so far this time. That changed when Robert Jeffress, a First Baptist Church pastor who introduced Perry to cultural conservatives in Iowa, called Mormonism a “cult” and said Romney is “not a Christian,” forcing Perry to distance himself and Romney to respond. The back-and-forth suggests the primary race has moved into a

more aggressive phase. And it illustrates that Perry’s very public religiosity and long history with evangelical Christian leaders won’t remain on the sidelines of the presidential race. But Perry, campaigning Saturday in Iowa’s staunchly conservative northwest, barely touched on religion at all. Perry waded back into Social Security instead, a tricky issue for him after he roundly criticized the popular entitlement in his book and his Republicans rivals piled on against him. Responding to a question in Sioux City, he said “it makes sense” to increase the eligibility age for benefits and it may be time to reduce those benefits for the wealthy, a process known as means-testing. In each of four Iowa campaign stops over two days, Perry took questions from voters, and none from reporters. None of the questioners mentioned Mormonism or asked overtly religious questions.

Women who pushed change in Africa, Mideast earn Nobel The Associated Press

OSLO, Norway — Leymah Gbowee confronted armed forces in Liberia to demand that they stop using rape as a weapon. Ellen Johnson Sirleaf became Africa’s first woman to win a free presidential election. Tawakkul Karman began pushing for change in Yemen long before the Arab Spring. They share a commitment to women’s rights in regions where oppression is common, and on Friday, they shared the Nobel Peace Prize. The Norwegian Nobel Committee honored women for the first time in seven years, and in selecting Karman, it also recognized the Arab Spring movement championed by millions of often anonymous activists from Tunisia to Syria. Prize committee chairman Thorbjoern Jagland said it would

have been difficult to identify all the movement’s leaders, and that the committee was making an additional statement by selecting Kar- Karman man to represent their cause. “We have included the Arab Spring in this prize, but we have put it in a particular context,” Jagland told reporters. “Namely, if one fails to include the women in the revolution and the new democracies, there will be no democracy.” Karman is the first Arab woman ever to win the peace prize, which includes a $1.5 million award that will be divided among the winners.

No woman or sub-Saharan African had won the prize since 2004, when the committee honored Wangari Maathai of Kenya, who mobilized poor women to fight deforestation by planting trees. Sirleaf, 72, won Liberia’s presidential election in 2005 and is credited with helping the country emerge from an especially brutal civil war. She is running for re-election Tuesday in what has been a tough campaign, but Jagland said that did not enter into the committee’s decision to honor her. “Leymah Gbowee worked very hard with women in Liberia from all walks of life to challenge the dictatorship, to sit in the sun and in the rain advocating for peace,” Sirleaf said. “I believe we both accept this on behalf of the Liberian people and the credit goes to them.”

Twentieth Century Fox Television, which makes the show, said it couldn’t continue without cutting costs and targeted the salaries of its voice actors. Terms of the deal were’t announced.

NESTLE PURINA PETCARE is releasing what it says is the first television commercial designed to appeal to dogs. The company told the St. Joseph News-Press that animal behavior experts at the Nestle Purina Product Technology Center in St. Joseph, Mo., helped it develop the commercial aimed at selling Beneful dog food. The ad will be shown in Austria. Nestle Purina experts discovered a combination of sounds that attract a dog’s attention without distracting from the human-focused dialogue. The ad features the squeaky sound of a dog toy and a bell.

AFTER EIGHT YEARS in the White House, George W. Bush is happy to be back home in Texas and out of the spotlight. But the former commander-in-chief told The Associated Press there’s one aspect of his presidency he still misses: interaction with U.S. troops. And Bush, who sent them to wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, said that despite his desire to remain largely out of the public eye, he wants to make sure veterans and military members know they still have his support. “I was a little concerned that our veterans don’t think that I still respect them and care for them a lot,” he said.

The new section along the lake would include a 6-foot-wide paved section, smaller than the 10-foot width seen elsewhere on the trail, and a 4-foot-wide gravel section for horses along the former Spruce

Tucker said the former railroad grade is eligible for placement on the National Historic Register, meaning the park is legally required to preserve it as much as possible. Stevenson said he doesn’t dispute that but added that he thinks the park is being too careful. “We can do this without violating either the historical preservation rules or the state requirements for what they want to see this look like,” he said.

OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — A proposed 3.5-mile addition to Olympic Discovery Trail on the north shore of Lake Crescent has gained an unlikely opponent: the Peninsula Trails Coalition. Although fully supportive of extending the trail alongside the iconic lake, coalition President Andy Stevenson said the group is adamantly against the proposal favored by Olympic National Park because it would be too narrow to be safely shared by both bicyclists and pedestrians. Additionally, a 0.5-mile section would be too steep for disabled users, Stevenson said. “To say it’s not ADA [American with Disabilities Act]-compliant and not safe, those are not words we are interested in saying about our trail,” Stevenson said, adding he would encourage users to avoid that portion of the path. The group spearheaded the idea for the trail, which will eventually connect Port Townsend and LaPush, and helps maintain existing segments. About 40 miles of the trail have been developed; it will eventually reach 120 miles in length.

Railroad grade. Clallam County, which is forwarding $999,990 in state grant funds for the project, has proposed an alternative supported by the coalition that would involve an 8-foot-wide paved trail to bypass the section with the steep, 18 percent grade. It would keep the horse trail. But park staff said they are not adopting the proposal because it would involve cutting a few hundred trees to make the bypass, and widening the trail may cause the removal of ballast — the small rocks used for the original railroad bed — which might have historic value. Teri Tucker, park environmental protection specialist, said the narrower trail avoids having to remove landslides on the former railroad grade. The park is concerned that excavating the slides would result in the removal of the rocks it wants to protect.

Tucker said the park wants to keep the area accessible to equestrians and is not considering eliminating the horse trail to increase the width of the paved portion. Ross Tyler, Clallam County engineer, said the project would be ineligible for certain federal funding sources if that width is used. The project, which will also involve the rehabilitation of two tunnels, is anticipated to cost about $1.36 million. It has not been determined what government agency would cover the additional cost or when the project will be completed. Tucker said the park is not required to make it w h e e l c h a i r- a c c e s s i b l e because it is using the existing terrain.

She said the park is trying to accomplish two things: increase access while preserving natural and cultural resources, such as the railroad grade. “When there’s a conflict, we have to go on the side of protecting resources,” she said. But the park’s proposal is nothing the county hasn’t already tried.

Tried before In 2009, the county built a seven-mile segment of the trail along the same railroad grade to the west of the proposed addition inside the park. There, the trail has an 8-foot-wide paved section with a 8-foot-wide gravel path for horses. Tucker said the park does not want to repeat the move because too much

ball­ast was disrupted, prompting objections from the state Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation. Tyler said the county will likely take the issue to National Park Service Regional Director Christine Lehnertz. “We are disappointed because the intent of the entire Olympic Discovery Trail from Port Townsend all the way down to the Pacific coast is to be an ADA-compliant, usable trail,” he said. “It’s kind of hard to imagine so many miles being done that met ADA compliance and then having a section that is not.” Stevenson said the group is seeking support from Rep. Norm Dicks and Sens. Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell.

About two miles of the trail are planned to be built in the Sol Duc area of the national park south of U.S. Highway 101. The park will be taking comments on the proposal for both sections until Oct. 21. A decision is expected to follow sometime before the end of the year. Park spokeswoman Barb Maynes and Tucker said the park likely will not change its proposal unless factual errors are found in the plan. The document can be viewed at http://tinyurl. com/sprucetrail.

Gates grant fights abusive households Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Healthy Families of Clall­am County and the Forks Abuse Program have been awarded a $250,000 grant to help women and men escape abusive households. Half of the grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will be used to cover moving expenses for victims. Often, said Healthy Families Executive Director Becca Korby, victims stay in abusive homes because of financial barriers. “If the only barrier to safe housing is you can’t afford first month’s deposit, let us help you with that,” she said. The money can also be used to help pay utility bills, Korby said. The rest of the grant will

be used on medical, legal and other services, she said. About 350 people are expected to be served with the grant. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Vigils to be held Healthy Families will hold vigils at noon Wednesday, Oct. 26, at The Gateway transit center in Port Angeles and at noon Friday, Oct. 28, at the corner of Sequim Avenue and Washington Street in Sequim.

PORTLAND, Ore. — A third body has been found in a deadly crime spree that began with the slaying of a woman in Everett last week and ended with the arrest in California a few days ago of two fugitives, Oregon authorities said Saturday. The body was found in a Jeep owned by David Jones Pedersen, who went missing last week after the Everett woman — his wife — was found stabbed to death in their home. Authorities did not release the body’s identity Saturday but said Pedersen’s relatives had been notified. Authorities have said they believe the Jeep was driven to Oregon and abandoned by Pedersen’s son, David Joseph Pedersen, and the son’s girlfriend, Holly Grigsby. Both are suspects in the slaying of Leslie Pedersen. Authorities believe that after abandoning the Jeep in Oregon, the two fugitives

commandeered a vehicle driven by Cody Myers, 19, and killed him. His body was found Tuesday in a wooded area about 70 miles from where the black Jeep was found. The younger Pedersen and Grigsby were arrested Wednesday on a highway north of Sacramento. They have not been charged in relation to the body but remain in custody in California on weapons and auto-theft charges. Authorities hope to identify the body in an autopsy Monday. The vehicle was found Friday afternoon in a remote wooded area southeast of Salem, Ore. It was discovered over an embankment along a logging road and was not visible from the roadway. Oregon State Police Lt. Gregg Hastings said authorities were led to the vicinity of the vehicle by “information developed during the ongoing investigation,” but he declined to elaborate.

PORT ANGELES — The Clallam County Sheriff’s Office has added a soupedup salt water patrol vessel to its marine unit. The 26-foot Protector was launched last month for patrolling the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Pacific Ocean that border Clallam County. It is equipped with inflatable sides and an enclosed aluminum cabin with hightech gizmos and gadgets that will enhance marine security details, Sheriff’s Deputy Ralph Edgington said. Edgington, a member of the marine unit, said the Protector is a big step up from the 19-foot inflatable Zodiac that it replaces. “There’s no comparison,” Edgington said. The Protector is powered by twin 175-horsepower, four-cylinder outboard engines. A seaworthy vessel, the Protector has a 100-gallon fuel tank for long-range patrols. “It’s a very nimble boat,” Edgington said. “I like the way it handles.” The Protector is equipped with 3-D capability, a mobile data terminal and a radar tower. It will be used primarily for safety patrols, fishing regulation enforcement and border security operations, Edgington said. The marine unit christened the vessel in a multi­ jurisdictional training operation in the Strait and the Pacific Ocean. Edgington said the unit works closely with the Coast Guard, Border Patrol and state Fish and Wildlife authorities. The boat, its customdesigned trailer and deputy training were funded through a Federal Emer-

Dabob: Underwater testing conducted since ’56 Continued from A1 The Dabob Bay Natural Resources Conservation Area is 6,287 acres, which includes shorelines and the forested uplands. The Dabob Bay range is also the Navy’s premier location in the United States for research, devel­ opment and testing of underwater systems, such as smaller unmanned underwater vehicles used in conjunction with subma­ rines.

‘Long history’ “We are honored to enter into this agreement with the Navy,” said Karen Anderson, the conservan­ cy’s Washington director.

“There has been a long history of collaboration at Dabob Bay for conservation of forests and shorelines. We’re thrilled that the Navy, a longtime user of Dabob Bay, is now entering into this collaboration to protect their research and testing range.” Rear Adm. Douglass T. Biesel, Navy Region North­ west commander, said the Navy was happy to partner with The Nature Conser­ vancy. “Access to land and water spaces to test and train are vital to our succ­ ess in maintaining high lev­ els of readiness to defend our nation,” Biesel said. This “encroachment pro­ tection” agreement, Biesel

noted, is part of the Depart­ ment of Defense’s Readi­ ness and Environmental Protection Initiative that is designed to support part­ nerships to work with will­ ing landowners to protect habitat and ensure that development or use of lands, water or air space in the vicinity of areas related to a military installation, range or airspace is compatible with the military mission. Robin Stanton, The Nature Conservancy’s spokesman in Seattle, said the conservancy was ready for the agreement in part because about two years ago, state DNR extended the boundaries of the natu­ ral resource area. “It makes it possible for

the state to acquire land in the area from willing sell­ ers,” Stanton said of the agreement. “Now that we have that natural resources area, it just enables the mechanism for the state to buy the land there.”

More acquisition Stanton said the conser­ vancy will continue its work with a coalition including the Northwest Watershed Institute, Jefferson Land Trust, DNR and other state and federal environmental agencies to acquire land around Dabob Bay from willing sellers to preserve it as part of the state-desig­ nated natural area.

40-year history of working with the Navy and the other military services to protect the environment while pro­ tecting the military’s ability to perform its missions. The first project between the conservancy and the Navy was an agreement to manage natural resources habitat at Naval Weapons Systems Training Facility Boardman in Oregon. The Navy has conducted underwater testing at Dabob Bay since 1956. It is also a component of the Department of Defense Major Range Test Facility Base, the core set of test and evaluation infrastruc­ ture recognized as critical assets to national defense. Because the Navy is a

seagoing force, many of its environmental initiatives focus on ocean stewardship. “This is an excellent example of the [Defense Department’s] Readiness and Environmental Protec­ tion Initiative helping to protect the Navy’s substan­ tial investment in the Dabob Bay range while pre­ serving water quality and wildlife habitat in Hood Canal,” said Rep. Norm Dicks, ranking Democratic member of the House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, in a state­ ment.

Boat festival fundraiser The Wooden Boat Festi­ val is a major source of rev­ enue for the Northwest Maritime Center, with last month’s event raising $137,000 or 2.5 percent above the 2010 total.

“This is a hard time for nonprofits,” said the mari­ time center executive direc­ tor, Jake Beattie. “There are cutbacks in what people can give, while there is an increased demand for services.” For instance, schools once could pay for programs at the maritime center. Now, private money needs to be raised in order to provide the same educa­ tional opportunities.

100 animals hoarded at Burien residence The Associated Press

SEATTLE — Animal care workers are busy bathing and grooming dozens of dogs that King County sheriff’s officers found confined at two houses in a case that’s being called animal hoarding. In all, 100 small dogs were seized Thursday. Sher­ iff’s Sgt. John Urquhart said 14 dogs were taken to veteri­ narians. Nine were eutha­ nized because of poor health. He said the 38 dogs removed from a Burien home were mostly Chihuahuas, Pomeranians and Chins kept in “extremely dirty” crates and in poor health.

Urquhart said the 62 dogs removed from an Issaquah residence were predomi­ nantly Chihuahuas and in better condition. Animal welfare organiza­ tion Pasado’s Safe Haven contacted the Sheriff’s Office after getting a tip about the animals. The sheriff’s spokesman said a man at the Burien home told authorities that most of the dogs were his. He said he kept more dogs at the Issaquah house. No arrests have been made so far, but Urquhart said the Sheriff’s Office will continue to investigate.

In Your Driveway PORT ANGELES – The popularity of Halloween continues to rise year after year among adults looking for a good time and wanting to escape from reality for a night. But if you’re driving an old car that has become your worst nightmare, this Halloween sale might just be your chance to escape for good! Here’s why. Local car dealer, Mark Ostroot, General Sales Manager of Price Superstore, is at it again and is giving Port Angeles residents who hate their old car a real treat… a way to escape and drive a nicer, newer car even if they owe more than it’s worth or even if it’s in frightful condition and needs to “rust in peace.” In response to the success of Halloween as an adult escape holiday, Price Superstore has put together their Old Car Escape Plan, which is going on only for the month of October. They are planning on helping 77 local residents escape from their old car and drive home in a nicer, newer car, SUV, minivan or truck. Using the Old Car Escape Plan, Price Superstore will completely pay off your current lease or loan on the car that’s getting under your skin so you can drive a nicer, newer car you’ll love. If you’re driving an old monster, the Old Car Escape Plan can get you $4,000* more for your old car than it’s actually worth. This gives you the opportunity to make something out of almost nothing and will allow you to drive a car you’ll be proud to own.

Nightmares Just Don’t Happen While You’re Sleeping

“Many times people buy a car and they absolutely love it, then a few years later it becomes their worst nightmare. They just start to hate the thing. Maybe it’s not reliable anymore, maybe it doesn’t feel comfortable or they hate the way it drives or looks. Maybe it’s the payments. Something’s just not right about that old car and they can’t stand it anymore. They feel trapped in the car and they want out,” explained Ostroot. A solution to this problem is not common but, as Ostroot told us, nether is he and what they do at Price Superstore. “I’ve read that a lot of people use Halloween as an escape from reality

and that got me thinking. Part of what they are escaping from is everyday problems, like issues with their car. Halloween can help them escape for a night, but I can help them escape for good,” Ostroot exclaimed. “My Old Car Escape Plan lets us pay off current loans or leases by giving $4,000* more than cars are currently worth. And believe it or not, used cars are worth more right now than ever before. So your car’s value may really surprise you. With slowdowns in vehicle production and natural disasters affecting the supply of cars from the manufacturers, the used car market is hot. It’s a great time to score a big deal and that’s a real treat.”

Don’t Be Cursed By Bad Credit

Mark Ostroot says his Old Car Es-

“My Old Car Escape Plan lets us pay off current loans or leases by giving $4,000* more than cars are currently worth. And believe it or not, used cars are worth more right now than ever before. So your car’s value may really surprise you. With slowdowns in vehicle production and natural disasters affecting the supply of cars from the manufacturers, the used car market is hot. It’s a great time to score a big deal and that’s a real treat.” cape plan is perfect for people who have had credit challenges in the past and think they can’t get approved for a nicer, newer car. “My For The People® Credit Approval Process is like waking up from a nightmare. You no longer have to run and hide from past credit problems,” Ostroot said. “We have ways of making the banks really understand your situation. We bring the person into the process. We tell your specific story. We don’t just quote credit scores and send pay stubs. With my process the lenders see you as a person where traditionally they just see a bunch of stats. That’s what makes my program so different and so much more effective.”

Tell Us Your Horror Story

As a fun addition to their Old Car Escape Plan, Price Superstore is running a cool contest. If you visit Price Super-

Dogs foil the mightiest of nappers I BELIEVE THAT every living creature has a purpose, a reason for being, and that mine is to take a nap. I am descended from W. Bruce warrior-class Cameron nappers. My father, for example, has basically been napping since he retired in 1993. He wakes up for lunch and to complain that he has lost the TV remote, then falls asleep in his chair. (We’re pretty sure if he stood up he’d find the remote, because he’s sitting on it.) So I know when a nap is coming. I can sense it the way animals can sense an impending earthquake or teenagers know they’re

about to get a text message. “Tucker, I am going to lie down and take a nap,” I say ambitiously. I’m talking to my dog because he’s the only one in the house with me. If my wife were home, I might feel guilty sleeping in the afternoon when she’s working so hard, which is why people who are really dedicated to napping probably shouldn’t get married. The dog leaps to his feet, ready to help me face whatever challenges lay ahead. He follows me back to the bedroom. “Good boy, Tucker,” I say. Then I execute what in napping is known as “the mount,” a clean descent onto the bed, head hitting dead center in the pillow. I can feel my long-dead ninja napper ancestors nodding approval at the Olympic-quality mount. I like to sleep on my side, one

Speaking Out

arm flung off the edge of the bed because it looks elegant and handsome. I sigh, already slipping into slumber, then open my eyes, frowning. My dog is licking my fingers. “Tucker! Stop that. No licking Daddy’s fingers when he is trying to take a nap,” I say. Tucker considers this carefully, then licks my fingers. “OK! Stop! Lie down. Go to sleep. We’re taking a nap.” I close my eyes. Tucker whines, a long, soulful moan of sadness. I open my eyes. “OK, you want to come up here with me?” I pat the bed. The dog is never allowed on the bed under normal circumstances, but this is a nap and therefore fits the criteria for a national emergency. Tucker gives me a “really?” expression, then leaps nimbly up, curling in a ball against me.

I close my eyes. Having a dog lying next to me is comforting and warm. After about I minute, I feel Tucker jump to his feet, moving around, and then his hot breath is on my cheeks. I open my eyes. He’s standing by my head, staring down at me, panting. “What is it? Go to sleep!” I tell him. I close my eyes. He licks my face. I open my eyes. “We’re not doing face licking at this time!” I say sternly. “Lie down! Nap!” He barks. “OK, if you will just lie down, I’ll buy you a chicken,” I promise. He is unmoved — I’ve used this on him before and never delivered. He barks again, bowing and wagging his tail as if he has no idea what I mean by “nap.” That’s it. “I’m sorry, but I have no choice

but to eject you from the game,” I say. He appears shocked, but he shouldn’t be — we’ve discussed this, and he knows the policy. I lead him out to the hall and shut the bedroom door. Now, a nap. Tucker sniffs loudly under the door as if trying to inhale me through the crack. Then he cries, scratches the door and barks. With a sigh, I get out of bed and open the door, and he jumps on me and cries, greeting me as if I’ve just returned from the war. I decide that instead of napping, I’ll take my dog for a walk. My ancestors would be very disappointed in me.

Peninsula Voices Continued from A8 This letter writer is crying because we are paying for law enforcement, and they are squandering our money by incarcerating him for driving on a suspended license. Come on, let’s hear the rest of the story. A first-time charge would not normally get you jail time, but multiple arrests might. If you cannot afford a license, then you surely can’t afford insurance, which is a legal requirement, also. How can you afford to drive? A tank of gas costs more than a license these days, and a person will need to pay for gas every week or so versus paying for your driver’s license every three or four years. The writer says that if we met him on the street, we would offer him a job. If that is true, then perhaps he should accept one of those offers. The writer seems to infer that our laws and resulting punishments are excessive, when actually the opposite is true. It’s high time we put some serious teeth in our laws so we won’t keep reading about driving fatalities caused by drunken drivers who have had three, four or five convictions before. Anyone dealing in drugs should not see the light of day again because they are also committing murder even though they haven’t pulled a trigger. We shoot a mugger, robber, rapist or whoever breaks into our home, and we are the ones who could go to jail. The legal scale has swung more toward the criminal than the victim, and yet this writer claims “foul.” I’m sorry, but until I hear the real story and all the details, I cannot be sympathetic.

For Johnson I am a Sequim High School Class of 2007 graduate. I was one of the first student representatives on the Sequim School Board. It was a very rewarding experience, and I gained a great deal of insight into how our school system works. I am now a commercial airline pilot, and I believe this experience was a large asset to my resume. Walt Johnson was one of the School Board members who actively supported the student representative program. He had previous experience with student representatives while he served on a school board in Michigan and convinced his fellow board members that Sequim should also have a student representative. The program has been a great success, and while I was on the board, I always highly valued Walt’s opinions and found him to be very diplomatic and someone who keeps the students’ and parents’ interests in mind. Walt’s experience as a School Board member on both a Michigan school board and the Sequim School Board makes him the best choice in the upcoming election. I urge all the voters in the Sequim School District to re-elect Walt Johnson. He is the type of person who can and will make a difference for the students. Daniel Sallee, Sequim

Di Guilio critic I recently came home to find a re-election flier for Port Angeles City Council candidate Dan Di Guilio stuffed in my mailbox. Being interested in local politics, I read the whole thing. To put it mildly, I was not impressed. Though it’s an election flier for Mr. Di Guilio, other than his name the rest of

the text could be for Any Candidate from Anywhere, USA. His generic approach in selling himself to voters left me cold. Mr. Di Guilio says we can “count on” him to “continue to support business development.” Well, duh. Is anyone running who’s against business development? Mr. Di Guilio also promises to continue to “work hard” and “get things done.” So much for specifics. I’m surprised he didn’t promise to “do good stuff.” In two places, Mr. Di Guilio says he’ll “listen to everyone.” Well, I hope he’s listening now, along with everyone else in Port Angeles. I’m voting for Noelle Fuller for City Council (Position 5). As someone who manages a business in the heart of downtown, I have no doubt that she has transferable business experience and is truly vested in the future — economic and otherwise — of Port Angeles. Mr. Di Guilio, who is retired, seems to just be going through the motions, both as mayor and as a candidate. I want to vote for someone who is passionately interested in our town. I want someone who is active and connected and committed to this community and our future. I believe that person is Noelle Fuller. Please join me in voting for her. Sam Miller, Port Angeles

Our readers’ letters, faxes ‘Learn from errors’

At a candidates forum, Jim McEntire said that he would do Harbor-Works all over again. One would think he might learn from his mistakes. He also stated that Rayonier had assured us they were ready to talk, but they weren’t. However, one need only read the letter from Rayonier Vice President Michael Herman to Harbor-Works’ Jeffrey A. Lincoln and an extensive list of local officials on the history of Rayonier’s participation. Herman stated Rayonier had been talking with Harbor-Works for many months about a potential transaction, had supported the Harbor-Works mission and was hopeful that a deal could be worked out. But a deal HarborWorks proposed was unacceptable on the terms offered. Also, Rayonier has an agreed order with the Department of Ecology defining work to be conducted and is proceeding with implementation (and, moreover, Rayonier has spent $25 million at the site since the mill closed in 1997). What Harbor-Works offered is nothing that any rational landowner would accept — requiring Rayonier to cede authority over the site to Harbor-Works and to deposit millions of dollars into a cleanup fund HarborWorks would control.

without Rayonier’s consent. ful in keeping and adding Florence Bucierka, jobs in this county, has my Sequim vote. Linda Moench, Sequim Defends McEntire Seems when an opponent’s campaign is floundering, the other side either goes negative or spins the truth. The writer of the Oct. 2 letter “McEntire ‘spender” factually depicts McEntire’s role on the bipartisan team (key word “team,” a combined total of 10 unanimous votes from the City Council and the Port of Port Angeles commission). The circumstances around which HarborWorks was formed have been analyzed for years and used by a liberal, nogrowth contingent of Clallam County. Time to move on. Casting Jim as committing dollars “without any prior public discussion” is incorrect and unjust. The state auditor and attorney general have twice determined there was no violation of the state Open Public Meetings Act or anything legally suspect about how HarborWorks was created. And the funding to get the Rayonier pulp mill site back in production to replace and add jobs came directly from the governor’s office through a legislative settlement (sponsored by our 24th District Democratic elected officials) to offset the graving yard multimillion-dollar fiasco. Two good things that Harbor-Works did achieve are the storage tank ownership transfer to the city of Port Angeles to resolve sewage overflow into the harbor during heavy rains and in-depth environmental studies showing the extent of on-site pollutants both of the shoreline and harbor. Negative, partisan, party antics are not good for the community of Clallam County and do not benefit your candidate. Jim McEntire, an experienced, proven leader instrumental and success-

‘Miller confusion’ As voters gear up for local elections, many are confused by the many “Millers” who are either running for office or who have served the community in the recent past. The local newspapers have not yet provided assistance by clarifying for their readers the identities of current and past Millers in the public view. Let me explain: There is Ted Miller, a sitting Sequim City Council member since 2010. There is Sheila Roark Miller, current Clallam County director of community development, who defeated John Miller in 2010. There is another John Miller who is now challenging current Sequim City Council member Laura Dubois, and there is Eric Miller, a more or less silent contender currently running against Candace Pratt for the Sequim City Council seat of Susan Lorenzen. Neither of the current Miller contestants have made any effort to clarify this mess or to articulate what they would do for the citizens of Sequim. I recommend that voters avoid altogether this Miller confusion and vote for Laura DuBois and Candace Pratt. Both Laura and Candace bring strong experience to the council. Laura has been a steady voice for common sense and fact-based conclusions during her tenure on the council. Candace has had long experience working for transparent government by doing the outreach, the organizing and communication required for League of Women Voters election forums. Judith Parker, Sequim

Prep Notes

Number one with a bullet Ranking Peninsula men win battle of the best by CPU

SOME DAY, THE computers will do the thinking for us. They (or is it it?) will decide Matt which football Schubert teams are the best in the state and seed each accordingly into the playoff brackets. Sound hokey? Well, the Oregon School Activities Association already does it for its football state tournaments. There had previously been talk that the WIAA would eventually use a panel of former coaches and athletic directors to seed the tournament, but it appears the computer method is now the one gaining steam. Why? Because people are sick of seeing first-round match-ups like the one from last year’s Class 2A tournament that pitted No. 1 Lynden vs. No. 3 Tumwater. Depending upon how such a system is weighted, that may or may not be a good thing for North Olympic Peninsula teams. One might think lifting the human element can only be a good thing for area schools given how often teams from this area are easily dismissed. Yet a look at two different computer rankings — one done by and another presented by the News Tribune out of Tacoma — reveals that even those can disagree substantially. Sequim and Port Angeles, for example, have totally divergent rankings from one poll to the next. On, the Wolves are rated as the 11th best team in 2A and the Roughriders the 23rd best. But in the News Tribune rankings, the Wolves are No. 2 and the Riders are No. 8. Pretty big difference to say the least. For now, of course, that matters as much as The Associated Press poll. That is to say all three have absolutely no bearing on where teams will end up come playoff time. All of the state brackets have already been decided, and can be seen here: Still, that likely will not be the case in the future, when the machines take over. Somebody alert John Connor.

Forks playoffs? The Forks Spartan football team may get a major assist from Southwest Washington League administrators this fall. Previously, league athletic directors had decided that only three teams from the Evergreen and Trico divisions would advance to the playoffs to play for four state berths. It appears the league will put four teams from each division into postseason, however, to assure more participation, according to Montesano athletic director Tim Trimble. The way the system would work, the division champions would each take on the No. 4 seed from the opposite division and the 2’s would face the 3’s. Obviously, that extra spot increases the chances of Forks — currently fifth in the Evergreen — getting in. “The rest of our season is on our hands,” said Forks coach Mark Feasel, whose squad still has two games against teams (Elma and Tenino) above it in the standings. “It’s in our hands what happens. We’ve just got to come out and play.”

More seating Once again, Port Angeles and Sequim are the last two unbeaten teams in the Olympic League. Here’s guessing that if Port Angeles gets past North Kitsap in its homecoming game Friday, the two will be playing for the outright league title for the second year in a row. As anyone who attended last year’s contest knows, such a scenario is likely to attract a whole bunch of fans. The good news: Sequim has added three more sets of bleacher seats to its stadium. The bad news: Who knows if it will be able to fit the 4,200-plus that showed up to last year’s game.

PORT TOWNSEND — The Roberts family continued its cross country brilliance, and the Port Angeles boys proved themselves up-and-comers at a fastpaced Fort Worden Invitational on Saturday.

The Roughriders won the boys race with Nick Shindler capturing second place at the seven-team event held at Fort Worden State Park. Port Angeles had four runners finish in the top 10 with the fifth runner 18th to overcome Olympic taking first and third.

In the girls race, the Roberts sisters of Kingston kept piling up the hardware as second sister Marina Roberts broke the course record with a time of 16 minutes, 49 seconds on the 2.9-mile track.

Cowboys come up with win Peninsula Daily News

VASHON — The Chimacum football team spoiled Vashon Island’s homecoming by turning a close game into a 35-14 rout with three touchdowns in the fourth quarter Friday night. Justin Morris, who had 109 rushing yards on the day, had two scoring runs in the fourth, while Derek Ajax had another to boost Chimacum (1-3 in league, 1-5 overall) to its first win of the season in Nisqually League play. “We played with a lot of effort, energy and efficiency, which is something we’ve talked about from the first day of practice,” coach Shawn Meacham said. “If we can give a consistent effort in those areas, we can be a dangerous team to play against.” Meacham said he hopes the momentum from this game will carry over to next Friday’s homecoming game against league powerhouse Charles Wright. “We have good momentum going for us and we can use it for our next game because we’re really going to need it,” Meacham said. Big plays throughout the Vashon game helped the Cowboys to overcome the Pirates. The first big play was a 105yard interception return for a TD by Victor Cienega to give Chimacum a 9-0 lead at halftime. Turn

Home wreckers Second-ranked Montesano rolls past Forks for victory By Matt Schubert Peninsula Daily News

FORKS — The scheduler did the Forks Spartans few favors, and neither did the Montesano Bulldogs. Playing before a packed homecoming crowd at Spartan Stadium on Friday night, the Spartans became the latest victims of the SWL-Evergreen Division juggernauts. Montesano rolled for 491

total yards and eight touchdown drives on the way to a 55-8 rout of Forks. It was the second-ranked Bulldogs’ 37th straight league victory, and eighth in a row for Montesano coach Terry Jensen against his former team. Hardly the sort of patsy one might expect for a homecoming opponent. “You don’t plan that one,” first-year Forks coach Mark Feasel said. “In fact, you look for

every loophole in the book trying to get around that one. “They are a great team. They are very well coached and they come at you. Those guys are a unit. They play as a unit and they never stop.” The loss snapped a two-game win streak for Forks (2-2 in league, 2-4 overall), which could at least take solace in the fact that it was the second team to score a touchdown on Montesano (4-0, 6-0) this season. Unfortunately for Forks, Andrew Weltz’ 10-yard scoring pass to Braden Decker didn’t come until its final drive of the game. Turn

Sequim 27, Kingston 13 SEQUIM — The Kingston Buccaneers came out with the perfect game plan to beat the Sequim Wolves on Friday night. It still wasn’t enough. Sequim, scoring two late touchdowns to escape with a 27-13 win, outlasted a game Kingston team that brought its best ground-and-pound attack to the Olympic League affair. The victory kept the fourth-ranked Wolves (4-0 in league, 6-0 overall) atop the league standings with Port Angeles and also brought their league winning streak to 24 games. “They had a good game plan, and they also executed it well,” said Sequim coach Erik Wiker, still perfect in October at 33-0. “We came out winners on the scoreboard, but it was really tough.” The Buccaneers (2-2, 3-3) did all they could to play the role of homecoming spoilers, holding onto the ball for several time-consuming drives. They tied up the game at 13-all in the fourth quarter on a 1-yard Sam Byers quarterback sneak, but failed to take the lead after the snap on the point after was bobbled. With Sequim expecting Kingston to try an onside kick, the Buccaneers squibbed the ball down the field.

Clallam Bay 42, Highland Chr. 0 ARLINGTON — Jeremy Rock had three touchdowns while Ryan Willis threw for two scores, had a rushing touchdown and an interception as the Bruins rolled to the Northwest Football League victory Friday night. Clallam Bay had a bye last week and used the time to implement some changes on the offensive side of the ball. Ryan Willis was moved from end to quarterback and Austin Ritter was moved from quarterback to fullback. “The changes worked for us,” Bruins coach Cal Ritter said. “Ryan had a great game at quarterback and Austin blocked well and ran well at fullback. “We practiced hard for a week and a half, we made some changes and the boys played well. I’m really proud of the boys.” The Bruins jumped right into the playoff hunt by improving to 2-2 in league and 2-3 overall. The key for Clallam Bay was dominating the line of scrimmage. “The boys played well in the trenches,” Cal Ritter said. “They protected the passer, blocked well and defensively we gave up few yards rushing to Highland Christian.”

Quilcene 58, Muckleshoot 44 MUCKLESHOOT — The Rangers won a Northwest Football League shootout to improve to 2-2 in league and 3-2 overall Friday night. Colby Schreier and quarterback Jacob Pleines had four touchdowns each to help Quilcene hold off upand-coming Muckleshoot. Pleines had an outstanding game with three TD passes and a run for a score on offense, and four interceptions — three officially — on defense. “Jacob Pleines played lights-out in the game,” Rangers coach Nic Dahl said. The defensive back had a touchdown on one of his interceptions, but it was called back on a “phantom” clip, Dahl said. Pleines also had an interception nullified when a referee said the ball touched the ground. “I viewed the film and the ball never touched the ground,” Dahl said. “It was a perfect interception.” At any rate, the Rangers got the last laugh with the victory. Colton Pol had three sacks in the game for the Rangers while Schreier and Lucas Murphy had one each. Quilcene next hosts state powerhouse Lummi this Saturday afternoon for its 2011 homecoming game.

Crescent’s Austin Hutto, left, dodges the defensive efforts of Rainier Christian’s Logan Mohler, front right, and Zane Coble in the second quarter on Saturday in Joyce.

Crescent 72, Rainier Chr. 66 JOYCE — Derrick Findley had a hand in five touchdowns while big 245-pound Mike Zapien added another four scores in a Northwest Football League shootout Saturday. The Loggers (3-2, 4-2) spotted Rainier Christian a 14-0 lead before exploding for 72 points to win their 2011 homecoming game. “If ever the score of the game told the story, this was the one,” coach Darrell Yount said. “We moved the ball up and down the field all day long, and still find ourselves in a dog-fight. Rainier Christian gave our defense fits all afternoon.” Findley moved from his regular receiver position to assume quarterback duties and passed for three touchdowns and rushed for two more. In addition, Findley ran back an interception on defense for a score. “Findley had great poise, just great leadership and a big day,” Yount said. Zapien, meanwhile, ran for a whopping 257 yards on 31 carries and four rushing touchdowns. Findley ran the ball 11 times for 176 yards and he passed for another 194 yards. Senior captain Joel Williams had more than 200 total yards of offense. “Just a great effort by Joel,” Yount said. Williams led the defense with 10 tackles and a sack, while Findley and Zapien had an interception each. The Loggers had 525 rushing yards and 194 passing yards for a total of 719 yards on the day.

Port Angeles 27, North Mason 20 BELFAIR — The Roughriders survived some key absences to get past upset-minded North Mason (0-4, 0-6) in Friday night’s Olympic League contest. Riley Hannam blocked a Bulldog punt in the fourth quarter, and Dylan Brewer quickly converted it into his second touchdown run of the game to keep No. 8 Port Angeles (4-0, 6-0) unbeaten. “We had a few injuries that we had to have people step up and fill their shoes,” Rider coach Tom Wahl said. “Everybody stepped up and did their job, and some of the other guys had to do a little bit more. I guess we did enough to get by.” The Riders — already missing starters Eli Fiscalini (WR/LB) and Frank Hansen (OL) to injuries — were dealt another setback when Cameron Braithwaite injured his knee midway through the game. The senior two-way starter could miss several weeks of action, Wahl said. “We don’t know exactly for sure [how long he’ll be out] until they look a little bit closer,” Wahl said. “It’s going to at least be three weeks until we know for sure.” Port Angeles 27, N.

Spartans: Montesano defense tough Continued from B1 “The boys were up to the challenge, they felt good going into the game. I loved how they responded,” Feasel said. “We had some big plays, some big hits. We just had a heck of a time, like everybody else does, scoring and moving the ball on them.” Indeed, outside of that final drive, Forks had few offensive highlights. A switch to a shotgun formation did little to help a Spartan offensive line that struggled to keep Montesano’s 3-3 defensive front out of the backfield. The Bulldogs dropped Forks for a loss of yardage 11 times while limiting the team to just 62 total yards. Running back Sergio Chase (five carries, 12 yards) and receiver Tyler Penn (one carry, four yards) were the only Spartan runners to manage a positive rushing total against the Bulldogs.

And Forks quarterback Brady Castellano was under pressure all game, leading to a 2-of-14 showing for 29 yards and two interceptions. “They pressured Brady a lot,” said Tyler Penn, who led the Spartans with 51 yards of offense. “Obviously, we couldn’t really do anything because there was so much pressure on him.” On the other side, Montesano moved the ball with efficiency, scoring on eight of 10 possessions. Quarterback Matthew Jensen completed his first eight throws as the Bulldogs used the pass to open up running lanes for running backs Evan Truax and Stefan Green. The junior signal caller set the tone by finding receivers Joe Benedict and Kyle Black on go-routes for 37- and 22-yard hookups — the latter for a TD — on the team’s first two offensive plays of the game.

Montesano defensive back Austin Baker intercepted Castellano on Forks’ next drive, and the Bulldogs marched 96 yards on 11 plays, overcoming 30 yards in penalties in the process, for another score. Although Forks was able to stop the Bulldogs on their third drive, they would score on their next three possessions after that to take a 34-0 halftime lead that held up. “We thought that they were going to try to load up the box and try to stop the run, so we thought we’d come out and throw the ball a little bit,” Terry Jensen said. “That’s not usually our plan, but it was tonight.” Montesano finished with 316 yards rushing on the game, with Truax accounting for 116 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries. Green added 58 yards and two scores on 13 carries. Matthew Jensen racked up 175 yards through the


air on 10-of-13 passing with two touchdowns and no interceptions. Benedict had three catches for 100 yards and one touchdown as his favorite target. “I thought they honestly were going to come out and run the ball really, really well, but they passed the ball really, really well,” Penn said. “They spread us out and then, of course, they would give it to that really good fullback of theirs and he was a hard guy to tackle.” Both teams emptied their benches after Montesano triggered the 40-point running clock three minutes into the second half. Thanks to Weltz’ showing on the final drive — the sophomore completed 3-of-4 passes for 43 yards — the Spartans were able to at least come away with one positive offensively. Weltz also completed a pass to Chase for a two-point conversion.

“I thought [the Spartans] played hard, they competed and played hard,” said Jensen, now 9-1 against Forks since taking over at Montesano. “I think they are going in the right direction. They are young, with a new coach. Gotta give them some time and build a program.” Montesano 55, Forks 8 Montesano Forks

Giant problem for Seahawks Seattle heads to New York for tough test

The Associated Press

Washington State wide receiver Gino Simone, center, misses a pass as he is defended by UCLA safety Dalton Hilliard during the first half of Saturday’s game at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif.

Cougs fade in L.A. WSU sees late lead disappear in defeat The Associated Press

PASADENA, Calif. — Kevin Prince threw a goahead, 7-yard touchdown pass to Shaq Evans with 3:26 to play, and UCLA rallied from an eight-point deficit in the fourth quarter for a 28-25 victory over Washington State on Saturday night. Prince passed for 173 yards and led a thrilling comeback after starter Richard Brehaut broke his leg in the second quarter, mounting two late touchdown drives. Derrick Coleman rushed for two scores, and Josh Smith caught a TD pass for the Bruins (3-3, 2-1 Pac-12). Marshall Lobbestael passed for 235 yards and hit Jared Karstetter and Rickey Galvin for secondhalf touchdowns, but Washington State (3-2, 1-1) couldn’t extend its impressive start to the season. Andrew Abbott intercepted Lobbestael’s final pass near midfield with 2:01 to play, and Smith made an exceptional catch

for a first down while getting hit in the closing seconds, allowing UCLA to run out the clock. After receiving boos when he took the field, Prince went 8 for 13 in a steady performance in relief of Brehaut. Prince began his third straight season as UCLA’s starter, but lost the job last month after throwing three interceptions in the first quarter of a loss to Texas. Andrew Furney kicked four field goals for the Cougars, who could have matched their conference win total from the previous three seasons combined with a victory. After rallying from a late deficit at Colorado last week, Washington State allowed UCLA’s comeback despite outgaining the Bruins. After the Cougars settled for three field goals in the first half when their offense stalled inside the UCLA 10, Karstetter scored Washington State’s first touchdown midway through the third quarter.

Galvin then caught a fourth-quarter TD pass from Lobbestael, who went 28 for 40. The longtime backup quarterback remained in the Cougars’ starting lineup despite the return of Jeff Tuel, back in uniform after breaking his collarbone in the season opener. UCLA didn’t get a first down until early in the second quarter, and Brehaut was hurt on a hard tackle during a 5-yard run early in the second quarter. The junior attempted to walk back to the huddle before collapsing on the field. Prince immediately sparked the Bruins, connecting with Nelson Rosario on a 41-yard pass to the goal line, where Coleman scored. Tyler Gonzalez, a former manager of the Bruins’ soccer team pressed into football action by injuries, kicked the extra point for the Bruins. Coleman added another short TD on the Bruins’ opening drive of the second half, but UCLA’s fourth personal foul allowed the Cougars to make a short touchdown drive capped by Karstetter’s 8-yard grab over the middle.

Lobbestael hit Galvin in stride for a 21-yard TD, but UCLA blocked the extra point and made a swift drive for Smith’s TD catch. Rosario couldn’t hold on to the 2-point conversion throw, keeping Washington State ahead 22-20. Furney hit a 47-yard field goal with 5:49 to play, but Rosario made an electrifying, one-handed 58-yard catch that put the Bruins inside the Washington State 10 moments later. Evans scored on a 7-yard slant, and Rosario caught a 2-point conversion pass, putting UCLA up by three points.

The Riders easily won with 47 points to LibertyIssaquah’s 80 and Olympic’s 83. Port Angeles bunched up three runners in the top 10 to get the edge for first as Brendan Dennis took eighth, Kyle Tupper was ninth and Michael Ahrens claimed 10th. Evan Herbert, the Riders’ No. 5 runner, took 18th place, only 30 seconds behind his teammates. “We ran there two weeks ago, and so our kids knew the course,” Durr said. “I expected us to run 10 to 12 seconds faster. We have been training hard, logging 70 to 75 miles a week, and that is paying off.” The key to winning was running as a pack, Durr said. “We were able to run as a pack early and that pushes the kids along,” he said.

Liberty-Issaquah had its best five runners finish in the top 24 to nudge out Olympic for second place. Xavier Frank was Port Townsend’s top runner as he finished seventh (15:56). The Redskins’ top five all finished in the top 30 as they captured fourth overall with 91 points. Former Port Townsend ace cross country runner Bereket Piatt — the 2009 1A state champion — won the male open race with a time of 14:52. Marina Roberts shattered the old course record of 17:15 by Central Kitsap’s Shannon Moskowitz in the girls race. Kingston took the three top spots, but LibertyIssaquah claimed the next three positions and had five runners finish in the top 10 to win team honors with 34 points. Kingston was runner-up with 49 while Port Angeles finished in third with 103.

Moments of pleasure in birdwatching OUR “CAROUSEL” FEEDER was designed by a friend, and it isn’t easy to reproduce. Ken Short has been gone for many years and yet this feeder continues to function as it was intended. Its vertical bars are spaced so as to let the small birds in and keep the larger birds out. Its center is a block of wood with holes that hold Ken’s lardoatmeal mixture. There is no other feeder on the market that compares with it. Ken would have been chuckling with me if he had been standing in the kitchen the other day.

Carousel access A pileated woodpecker was trying to access the carousel. The woodpecker feeder had run dry and was still waiting to be filled. This large but agile bird was clinging to the bars that protect the tempting food.

The action outside the window expands their daily outlook. The pileated woodpecker continued to nibble away at the lardoatmeal mix. His efforts and the entertainment they contained were replaced by other performers soon after he left the scene. Bushtits grab your attention whenever they flock to the feeders, but they are even more fun to watch in the bird bath. This latest flock was no exception. The only difference was their experience level. Earlier in the summer, the young ones were timid about bathing. Now, they are experienced, and the bath can look like a YMCA class. These tiny birds were all over the bath, and they were clinging to tree branches and garden art, eager to get a drink from the dripper. They also wanted to dip themselves in the water. More moments of pleasure were mine to enjoy.

Its head was He had wanted to be a road Joan pressed against builder since the age of 16 when Carson them, and with he drove a team of horses on a its long beak, it local road-building job. managed to nip He continued in road building off tiny morsels until he retired. of the mixture.

Those moments are treasures right now. My middle sister passed away last week, and I miss her dearly. She was an important part of my life since the day she was born. Her sudden leaving has left a big hole in my heart and in our family circle.

Grief stays The grief you experience with the loss of a loved one doesn’t go away quickly. However, moments of pleasure that bring a smile to your face and lift your spirits for fleeting seconds help. I will always miss her, but many little things will remind me of the life and laughter we shared — even though she preferred cats to birds.

Critical grandma needs to be positive DEAR ABBY: My mother watches my two children before and after school and during the breaks. She is a caring person, but she is also very critical of my daughter. (She’s fine with my son.) Mom constantly tells my daughter she needs to lose weight or exercise more, or her hair looks stringy, or she isn’t dressed properly. My daughter is only 9. My mother did this to me when I was younger, and it made me feel I could never live up to her standards. How should I approach her about this? I don’t want my daughter to feel inadequate. She’s a beautiful, intelligent little girl. Frustrated in Missouri

for your daughter.


Dear Van Buren Frustrated: Deal with this firmly, before your mother erodes your daughter’s self-esteem as she did yours. Tell her how her constant criticism made you feel, that you don’t want the same thing to happen to your little girl and that anytime she’s tempted to make a negative comment, she should substitute a positive one instead. Be direct with her, and if she isn’t able to comply, make other arrangements

Dear Abby: Seven years ago, when I was 25, I quit a good job before I had a new one. Hard times ultimately led to my husband and me divorcing. I went back to school and am now starting a new career. But I can’t help but feel that if I had not quit my job years back, I’d be established in a career by now and still be married. I never listened to anyone back then, though I was polite and quiet. I have grown from the experience, but my heart aches for what I lost. I don’t drink or do drugs, so there is no numbing this pain. How do I get over my

Dear Should I?: A person who repeatedly rapes someone “for years” is a predator. This wasn’t two kids “experimenting”; it was sexual assault. How do you know he didn’t prey on other siblings or cousins? You should have sought counseling about this years ago, and it’s still not too late. Once you do, I’m sure you’ll find the strength to stand up for yourself and speak out.

Weed control: fabric and mulching ANOTHER READER’S QUESTION came in a little while ago and, as with many inquiries, it’s one I hear all too often. It contains many of the nuances, concerns and tribulations associated with the subject matter, yet the answers are easy and straightforward. Dear Andrew: I just started taking care of the landscaping around my condo and find that they have used landscaping cloth under all the shrubs to the point of wrapping it around the base of the rhodies and trees. It looks as though when I try to water in bonemeal, for example, the water just runs away from the root zone. I am a little reluctant to just poke holes through the cloth because drip irrigation lines run under the cloth. Some drippers have been discovered plugged under this cloth, and it is hard to detect when the cloth masks the devices. What is the appropriate use of this cloth, and does it in fact keep the ground compacted because it interferes with loosening of the soil from time to time? The weeds just grow in the mulch on top of the cloth and

your particular need. Do not use cloth or fabric you can rip or pull apart ( even if it takes great effort to do so) because it will fall apart underground, will tear when laying it down and will be spiked through by aggressive weeds. Woven is critical because tightly woven material is still permeable, Karl, so your concern about water penetrating downward evenly is abated. And again, a thick mulch layer holds water in place, allowing it to leech through woven fabric, carrying with it your bonemeal and other nutrients. Fabric could inadvertently cause soil compaction if, like a majority of people, you mulch too little, so again — 6 inches deep or more!

Mulch rot Mulch rots away to humus then humic acids, which actually greatly improve soil structure, provided there is a consistent, deep layer of mulch present (6 to 12 inches). Bare fabric or one with a minimal covering will be compacted if you walk over it precisely because you cannot work it, nor can nature effectively condition it.

Thick mulch atop fabric also means you many not need to water or water very little using oscillating sprinklers only a couple of times during the summer, which would be totally adequate. So, to recap (or recover): There is no need to use landscape fabric if persistent rhizomal weeds are not present. Mulch thick when laying down thick fabric because that will prevent or hinder many weeds and allow for easy handpulling, spraying or hoeing of any weeds present. One should always use the very best of professional, woven nylon fabric — no cheap or discount material here! Fertilize well before putting down fabric, and lime when appropriate, then water very well! Do not wrap tight around plants, and never let thick mulch touch stems, branches or trunks of plants.

PORT ANGELES — A film that will represent Bosnia and Herzegovina in the foreign-language Oscar race will be shown at Peninsula College’s Global Lens Series in the Maier Performance Hall at 7 p.m. Friday. The film is in Bosnian, with English subtitles. Ahmed Imamovic’s “Belvedere” traces the lives of the families of more than 8,000 Muslim men and boys who were murdered in Srebenica during the Balkans civil war. The title is a reference to a refugee camp where, 15 years after the war crime that shocked the world, widows, mothers and children wait as the remains of their loved ones are exhumed

from mass graves. Imamovic mixes actors and real-life survivors to tell his story. The massacre was declared genocide by the United Nations war crimes tribunal in The Hague. In the film, an attempt by a Srebrenica youth to escape life in the camp and enter the world of reality television fails as he realizes there can be no escape from the past until justice is served. The black-and-white footage used to portray the life of the main character, whose inner voice articulates lines of a famous Bosnian poet, is in stark contrast with the bright colors of the reality TV show and the small talk of its participants. Admission is $5, with PC and area high school students admitted free with a current student ID. For more information on the fall film series, visit the college website at www.

Ore. bus baby story stirs public outcry Peninsula Daily News news services

PORTLAND, Ore. — Can. Someone. Please. Make. That. Baby. Stop. Crying. No. Babies are notorious for crying as long as they feel like it; psychologists say adults hate that sound more than virtually any other; and, well, there you are. It’s an age-old dilemma, and its familiarity may account for the way in which a recent incident on an Oregon bus has become an international cause celebre. It’s the story of two dozen passengers, more or less, a baby in a bad mood and a bus that motored through its own terrible litt­le Twilight Zone on the 16 miles from Beaverton to Forest Grove in the Portland suburbs. The trip ended only when the bus came to a halt, the mother, Magdalena Rabadan, and baby were ordered off, passengers protested in her defense, the driver suggested they could leave, too, if they didn’t like it — and everybody did. Rabadan said she called her husband for a ride home. Oregon has talked about

daughter from crying, but there was nothing else she could do. Other passengers became impatient, according to various blogs and news reports, and yelled at the driver to get moving, that the baby wasn’t bothering them. “More than a few delved into obscene name-calling toward the driver,” one pass­enger reported on a local bus driver’s blog, “Rantings of a Transit Bus Driver.” “The driver then compounded the whole thing by spitting heatedly that anyone who didn’t like it could get off the bus as well.” Rabadan, apparently embarrassed at the fuss, left the bus. “The mother and crying baby were asked to leave the vehicle,” said Mary Fetsch, a TriMet spokeswoman.

little else for days. Hundreds of comments have come in from around the world to newspapers and TV websites, with people weighing in on behalf of beleaguered moms, stressed bus drivers, abused passengers, tired babies — the whole unhappy mix of humanity thrown together on buses so often that it’s a wonder only the babies cry.

Another incident The controversy is certain to pick up steam after another report surfaced Thursday of a male driver for the area mass-transit agency TriMet making another rider with a fussy toddler get off a bus in August. The Oregonian newspaper reported that an out-ofservice bus was dispatched to pick up Amy Pittman and her 2-year-old son, Jasper, after the driver ejected them miles from their suburban home. TriMet said the driver was disciplined. The child in the Sept. 29 incident, the driver said, started howling in Beaverton. A mother herself, that driver apparently halted the bus two stops short of

stand a suggestion that she give the child some keys to play with. Rabadan told KATU-TV through an interpreter that she understood the driver wanted her to stop her

Passengers left, too The passengers weren’t about to let it go, though. Jennifer Chapman, a graduate student in earlychildhood special education, challenged the driver. “I said, ‘You can’t kick a woman and her baby off at night in the middle of Hills-

boro,’” Chapman told KOINTV. “And she said, ‘If you don’t like it, get off the bus.’” Chapman did and stood next to Rabadan, and the driver then said anyone else who didn’t like it could also get off the bus. One by one, she said, every other passenger on the nearly full bus filed off. The dispatcher told the driver to go ahead and leave the rebellious passengers to wait for the next bus. For future reference, though, throwing crying children off the bus wasn’t allowed, according to the blog and confirmed by TriMet. “If somebody’s kid is crying, you still have to drive the bus.” Fetsch said the driver, a 10-year veteran, had been put on paid leave pending an investigation. In retrospect, maybe everybody was a little bit too mad about something that wasn’t that big of a deal, said the passenger who wrote in to the bus blog. “The driver lost her cool and escalated the situation, yes, but several of us riders (yes, myself included in the heat of the moment) did not make things any better.”

1st Afghan War casualty was from Fort Lewis By Rob Carson

Tacoma News Tribune

TACOMA — Nearly 1,800 U.S. military members have been killed in Afghanistan since the war began there 10 years ago, enough to form a single-file rank of soldiers a mile long. At the head of that line — the first U.S. casualty in the war — is a Fort Lewis Special Forces sergeant whose wife and two children continue to live in the Puyallup area. Sgt. 1st Class Nathan Chapman was 31 when he was shot to death Jan. 4, 2002, in an ambush near Khost, not far from the Pakistan border. He was part of the 1st Special Forces Group at Fort Lewis, working in Afghanistan as a communications specialist with the 5th Special Forces Group from Fort Campbell, Ky. Army officials said Chapman was among a

small group of Americans trying to enlist local tribal leaders in the hunt for Osama bin Laden. The fact that Chapman was the first to die in the war put him and his family in an odd and sometimes uncomfortably public position. “The first soldier kind of represents the rest,” Will Chapman, Nathan’s father, said Thursday from the family home in Georgetown, Texas.

Wife, two children When he was killed, Nathan Chapman lived in South Hill with his wife, Renae, and their two children, 2-year-old Amanda and 1-year-old Brandon. Renae, whom Will Chapman described as “a very private person,” has avoided publicity and, for the most part, the media have respected her wishes. Will Chapman, a 21-year

Air Force veteran, continues to speak for the family. The 10 years of the war, he said Thursday, seems like a very long time. He expressed no anger about his son’s death and said he continues to support the military and its mission in Afghanistan. “We’ve lost a lot of men since Nathan,” Chapman said. “This country has paid a high price. “But I wonder what kind of price we would have had to pay if we had not done something to remove those people. “I suspect that, left unchallenged, they would have done more damage than they were able to do.” Chapman said he and his wife continue to believe the mission in Afghanistan has been worthwhile, and he said they have been heartened by recent U.S. successes. “We were pleased with

some of the more recent accomplishments in getting rid of the al-Qaida leadership, including Osama bin Laden,” he said. “That was part of Nathan’s mission 10 years ago when he was killed, and the fact that has now been accomplished gives some satisfaction.”

Grief with death But it does little to ease the pain of Nathan’s death, he said. “The loss of a child creates a hole that you never fill,” Chapman said. “It’s so much different from losing your parents. Both my parents are gone and I miss them dearly, but that doesn’t create the same loss as losing a son. “Losing my parents was something I’d been expectThe Associated Press ing my whole life,” he said.

Panel: Healthy men shouldn’t get prostate test By Gardiner Harris The New York Times

WASHINGTON — Healthy men should no longer receive a PSA blood test to screen for prostate cancer because the test does not save lives overall and often leads to more tests and treatments that needlessly cause pain, impotence and incontinence in many, a key government health panel has decided. The draft recommendation by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, due for official release this week, is based on the results of five well-controlled clinical trials and could substantially change the care given to men 50 and older. There are 44 million such men in the United States, and 33 million of them have already had a prostate-specific antigen, or PSA, test — sometimes without their knowledge — during routine physicals. The task force’s recommendations are followed by most medical groups. Two years ago the task force recommended that women in their 40s should no longer get routine mammograms, triggering controversy. The recommendation to avoid the PSA test is even more forceful and applies to healthy men of all ages. “Unfortunately, the evidence now shows that this test does not save men’s lives,” said Dr. Virginia Moyer, a professor of pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine and chairwoman of the task force. “This test cannot tell the difference between cancers that will and will not affect a man during his natural lifetime.

Chances of sexual recovery vary widely By Carla K. Johnson The Associated Press

CHICAGO — A new study addresses one of the most worrying questions faced by men with prostate cancer: What are my chances of losing sexual function after treatment? The answers vary greatly by age, sexual potency before treatment, PSA levels and whether a man has surgery, standard radiation or radioactive seeds, the study found. Using the findings, men can get a rough idea of their personal odds by answering questions that also include weight and race, experts said. Unsurprisingly, older men whose sexual function is already low have the worst chances of good sexual function after treatment. “This will make it possible for patients to have a more realistic view of what to expect for themselves, rather than trying to guess where they fit in overall compared to the average guy with prostate cancer,” said study co-author Dr. Martin Sanda of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. The federally funded study, appearing in the current Journal of “We need to find one that does.” Prostate cancer strikes more than 218,000 U.S. men each year. About 28,000 die of it, making it the most common cancer and second-leading cancer killer among men, behind lung cancer.

Disagree with panel Advocates for those with prostate cancer promised to fight the recommendation. Baseball’s Joe Torre, financier Michael Milken and Rudolph Giuliani, for-

the American Medical Association, included only men with early-stage cancers, and it didn’t address cure rates for different treatments. In the real world, some patients have limited treatment choices. For instance, only men with earlystage, slow-growing cancers can choose radioactive pellets. That means the findings may be most useful in giving a realistic picture of the sexual side effects of a treatment that’s already chosen, rather than helping men pick a treatment. Researchers studied factors affecting potency in men and developed a questionnaire to help measure it. They evaluated its usefulness among 1,027 prostate cancer patients ages 38 to 84 and validated its accuracy in a separate group of more than 1,900 men.

Great variation It correctly predicted the chances of post-treatment potency in 77 percent of the men who had surgery to 90 percent of the men who had radiation. The study found great variation in men’s odds of having firm erec-

mer New York City mayor, are among tens of thousands of men who believe a PSA test saved their lives. The task force can also expect resistance from some drugmakers and doctors. Treating men with high PSA levels has become a lucrative business. Some in Congress have criticized previous decisions by the task force as akin to rationing, although the task force does not consider cost in its recommendations. “We’re disappointed,” said

tions after treatment. For surgery, the prospects for maintaining top sexual function for a 50-year-old man could range from 21 percent to 70 percent, depending on his PSA level and whether a nervesparing technique was used. For standard radiation, the study found, the odds for a man keeping top sexual function ranged from 53 percent to 92 percent depending on PSA level and whether hormones were used along with radiation. The researchers couldn’t find an age-related difference for standard radiation.

Study deficiencies The study has some deficiencies, experts said. It didn’t include men who chose what’s called “active surveillance,” where a doctor keeps track of a tumor through regular tests and treats it only if it markedly worsens. Many prostate cancer patients with slow-growing tumors can live their whole lives without symptoms or treatment, said Dr. Durado Brooks, prostate cancer director for the American Cancer Society. They die of something else before the cancer kills them.

Thomas Kirk, of Us TOO, the nation’s largest advocacy group for prostate-cancer survivors. “The bottom line is that this is the best test we have, and the answer can’t be, ‘Don’t get tested.’ “ But that is exactly what the task force is recommending. There is no evidence that a digital rectal exam or ultrasound is effective, either. “There are no reliable signs or symptoms of prostate cancer,” said Dr. Timothy

Wilt, a member of the task force and a professor of medicine at the University of Minnesota. Frequency and urgency of urinating are poor indicators of disease, because the cause is often benign.

Slow-growing cancer The 16-member independent task force is organized by the Health and Human Services Department to regularly assess preventive medical care. Its recommendations

have a widespread impact, especially on what services Medicare and private insurers pay for. The group’s influence was enhanced by the new federal health-care law, which will base some of its requirements for coverage on the group’s ratings. The PSA test, routinely given to men 50 and older, measures a protein — prostate-specific antigen — that is released by prostate cells, and there is little doubt that it helps identify the presence of cancerous cells in the prostate. But a vast majority of men with such cells never suffer ill effects because their cancer is usually slow-growing. Even for men with fastgrowing cancer, the PSA test may not save them, because there is no proven benefit to earlier treatment of such an invasive disease. As the PSA test has grown in popularity, the devastating consequences of the biopsies and treatments that often flow from the test have become increasingly apparent. From 1986 through 2005, 1 million men received surgery, radiation therapy or both who would not have been treated without a PSA test, according to the task force. Among them, at least 5,000 died soon after surgery and 10,000 to 70,000 suffered serious complications. Half had persistent blood in their semen, and 200,000 to 300,000 suffered impotence, incontinence or both. As a result of these complications, the man who developed the test, Dr. Richard Ablin, has called its widespread use a “public-health disaster.”

chronic illness. Alfred is survived by his wife, Pamela Fox; son Thomas Fox of Port Angeles; two stepdaughters; a sister, RoseAnn; and six grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, George C. and Amelia Fox of Yonkers, New York. At his request, there will be no services.

Death and Memorial Notice AURAL E. BURDICK November 7, 1914 September 24, 2011 Aural Eloise (Mathiesen) Burdick was born at her grandparents’ home in Lincoln, Nebraska, on November 7, 1914, to ranching parents in Northern Colorado. Her grade school education was there in the little village of Carr. As there was no school bus pickup in her area, she rode on horseback to and from the two-room school, which had a three-stall stable. For high school, her parents sent her to the Seventh-day Adventist Campion Academy in Loveland, Colorado. After graduation, she attended the School of Nursing at Loma Linda, California, graduating in the class of 1938. In 1939, she married Jesse Gordon Burdick, a third-year medical student at Loma Linda. Their first child, Dwight, was born there. Gordon’s internship took them to Chattanooga, Tennessee, where their second child, Marye Lou, was born. They then

Mrs. Burdick moved to Michigan, where Gordon had a rural family practice for nine years. Two more children, Bruce and Penny, were born there, but Marye Lou was lost in a tragic traffic accident. In 1950, in order to have regular work hours and more home time, Gordon became medical director for the Ethyl Corporation in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Houston, Texas, working in this capacity until his retirement in 1979. Aural had the blessing of being a stay-at-home mom during those years.

She was active in the PTA and, along with Gordon, helped found two Unitarian fellowships near Houston. Aural was an accomplished seamstress and quilt maker. She and Gordon were avid travelers, visiting many countries during their retirement years. Aural and Gordon moved from Texas to the Pacific Northwest in the late 1980s, living in Issaquah, Washington, for 15 years. In 2006, they moved to The Fifth Avenue retirement apartments in Sequim. After Gordon’s passing in March 2011, Aural moved to Sherwood Assisted Living, where she remained until her demise on September 24, 2011, after a brief illness. She will be greatly missed by her three children, 11 grandchildren, numerous great-grandchildren and one great-greatgrandchild. A family-only memorial service is planned.

WASHINGTON — Mom might get a quick note in the mail. Sister might get a birthday card. But that’s about it. For the typical American household these days, nearly two months will pass before a personal letter shows up. The avalanche of advertising still arrives, of course, along with magazines and catalogs. But personal letters — as well as the majority of bill payments — have largely been replaced by email, Twitter, Facebook and the like. “In the future old ‘love letters’ may not be found in boxes in the attic but rather circulating through the Internet, if people care to look for them,” said Webster Newbold, a professor of English at Ball State University in Muncie, Ind. Last year the typical home received a personal letter about every seven weeks, according to the annual survey done by the post office. As recently as 1987 it was once every two weeks. That doesn’t include greeting cards or invitations.

The early days It’s very different from the nation’s earlier days. When Benjamin Franklin was in charge of the mail, letters bound far-flung Americans together. “If I write, it’s only to my mother and it’s a quick note,” said Andy Aldrich, an education program coordinator who lives in Vienna, Va. He said he sends his mother a hand-written letter about once every four months. Otherwise, Aldrich said he mostly communicates through emails, text messages and Skype with relatives. Bob Cvetic, of Waldorf, Md., a health specialist with a federal law enforcement agency, said dif-

were paid by mail.” The Postal Service says the decline in letter-writing is “primarily driven by the adoption of the Internet as a preferred method of communication.” The loss of that lucrative firstclass mail is just one part of the agency’s financial troubles, along with payment of bills via Internet and a decline in other mail. The Postal Service is facing losses of $8 billion or more this year. The loss to what people in the future know about us today may be incalculable. In earlier times the “art” of letter writing was formally taught, explained Newbold. “Letters were the prime medium of communication among individuals and even important in communities as letters were shared, read aloud and published,” he said Fewer pay by mail “Letters did the cultural work that academic journals, book Even Stanley’s mailing of bill reviews, magazines, legal docupayments is no longer the norm, ments, business memos, diplowith the post office reporting that, matic cables, etc. do now. “for the first time, in 2010, fewer than 50 percent of all bills Turn to Postal/C9

ferent forms of communication have different purposes. “Emails are something quick,” he said. “Letters are letters. Franklin When I’m writing a letter to a friend, it’s a personal note. “You can’t send an email saying ‘hey, sorry to hear you lost your father.’” Mike Stanley of Silver Spring, Md., said he mostly uses the Postal Service to pay bills. He did send his sister a birthday card in August. “I don’t send letters. I use the cellphone or email,” he said. “It’s faster.”

State to pay $4.6 million in child-starvation case The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — The girl is 17 now and no longer forced to sneak water from the toilet or suck condensation off windows. But she will require physical and emotional help for years. Three years after her father and stepmother were discovered to have starved and withheld so much water from the Carnation teenager that she wore a size 2 shoe and looked half her age, the state has agreed to pay the girl and her brother $4.6 million. The Department of Social and Health Services said Friday it was settling a lawsuit that claimed social workers missed obvious opportunities to intervene during years of abuse that one King County sheriff’s detective said was the worst he’d ever seen. “We sincerely regret what happened to these children,” DSHS spokesman Tom Shapley said.

‘Resolve issues’ “We hope that this settlement will help them resolve issues that they’re going to have during their lives — and they will, no doubt, have them.” During a visit with a social worker back in 2005, when the girl was just 11, she had begged to be placed in foster care after claiming she was sometimes allowed just two pieces of toast a day. Social workers closed the case a month later, recommending the child undergo counseling. DSHS said it has since changed many of the policies that allowed the abuse to continue unabated. But the girl’s attorney said lax rules hadn’t been the only problem.

The Associated Press

The parents, Rebecca Long and Jon Pomeroy, leave a court session in 2008. They were each sentenced to 3½ years in prison. “Reforms are certainly welcome,” the children’s attorney Tim Tesh said Friday. “But if DSHS had spent a fraction of the time and resources ensuring that existing policies were followed in 2005 as they did defending this litigation, we wouldn’t be in this position today.” That year, Child Protective Services had responded to a referral by a public schoolteacher who

said the girl told her she was frequently locked in a room by her stepmother with barely any food. After interviewing the child, the CPS worker concluded she didn’t always get enough food, but that it mostly involved disputes with her stepmom. The social worker concluded the parents were mistreating the child. Turn

Skipper’s ill-fated boat back in water FRED AND MEGAN Rodolf, owners of the Alaskan tour boat Lu-Lu Belle who winter in Port Angeles, are familiar to regular readers of this column. The 75-foot yacht ran aground May 14 about 50 miles south of Valdez, Alaska, at the Hinchinbrook Entrance in Prince William Sound. Lu-Lu Belle’s composite hull was severely damaged and the yacht was considered a total loss by the Rodolfs’ insurance company. Fred, who is not one to wither under the weight of adversity, purchased the vessel from the insurance company. With Coast Guard approved engineering plans in hand, he began rebuilding Lu-Lu Belle within a couple of months of the ill-fated misstep. I was told last week that Lu-Lu Belle is back in the water — but that Fred still has a long two weeks’ worth of work ahead of him reconnecting all the mechanical and electronic pieces and parts before he gets under way for Port Angeles.

Tale of tenacity In the early 1980s, Dan Nordskog relocated from Minnesota to Port Angeles and soon decided to build himself a boat. Dan’s a carpenter, so it was natural for him to settle on a wooden boat. Despite the fact that he had never been sailing, Dan’s choice was a George Buehler-designed 28-foot, carvel-planked sailboat. As Dan’s project took shape, he also began reading books on sailing. This past summer, the build-

ON THE WATERFRONT ing came to an end, the books Sellars were put away — and he launched the newly christened Misty. The summer was spent aboard Misty cruising Puget Sound and developing the rudimentary skills required to tap the wind needed to power his vessel. Dan then got under way and sailed Misty down the West Coast. He sought safe haven in Drakes Bay — about 30 miles north of San Francisco — because of a balky outboard and lack of wind. Unable to make his way to anchorage, he tied up to an outer buoy and went below for a catnap. On the changing tide, Misty and the buoy began bouncing off each other, so Dan attempted to sail her into the bay. When shifting winds came to a standstill, he contacted Coast Guard dispatchers to let them know he was waiting for the winds to stiffen. They made the decision to send a boat out and tow him into nearby Horseshoe Bay. My understanding is that Dan is still in Horseshoe Bay working through some issues that arose on his voyage south. He still plans on circumnavigating the globe in Misty, although he was a bit shaken by the experience of riding out 40

knot winds in some pretty rough seas. If Dan’s past is any indicator of his future, I suspect his tenacity will win out and that he eventually will overcome any obstacles that impede his goal of sailing Misty around the world. After all, he spent 28 years building her.

Projects at Platypus Capt. Charlie Crane, director of sales and marketing for Platypus Marine Inc. on the Port Angeles waterfront, walked me through the Commander Building last Wednesday. One of the projects the company is working on is a Navy barge that was brought to Platypus’ facility by a pusher tug from Western Towboat of Seattle. The 61-foot by 31-foot barge is used as a maintenance platform by the Navy at the Bremerton Annex of Naval Base Kitsap. According to Capt. Charlie, personnel conducted inspections and sounding tests on the barge to make certain the integrity of the vessel’s steel components had not been compromised by salt water. Then Thursday night, the barge was sandblasted and is now being readied for a new coat of paint as well as a fresh set of zincs. Capt. Charlie said when crews complete the work on this barge, two more Navy barges will be brought to Platypus for maintenance. He went on to say that Platypus Marine has been awarded a five-year contract to perform maintenance work for the Navy on vessels that are stationed at

Bremerton and at the torpedorepair facility in Keyport.

Jellyfish galore On Friday morning, I stopped at Tesoro Petroleum’s facility on Ediz Hook, and in the waters along the Port Angeles Harbor shoreline I saw a veritable carpet of jellyfish. These jellyfish are known as sea nettles, and their sightings are most common during the fall and winter months in near-shore waters from Mexico to British Columbia. Sea nettles possess a distinctive golden-brown bell that can grow to nearly 12 inches across — beneath which trail two dozen maroon tentacles that can produce a painful sting. I checked with Todd Richie at the Port Angeles Boat Haven who said that there are thousands of the creatures in and around the marina. Todd also told me that on Thursday afternoon, he was speaking with some commercial fisherman from Sekiu who told him that when the swarms of sea nettles invaded that area, too. The fish were driven away, presumably to reappear when the jellyfish are gone.

Mold fighter On Wednesday, Oct. 19, Rich Pindell of Pindell Engineering in Port Townsend will be the featured speaker at Wooden Boat Wednesday at the Chandlery in the Northwest Maritime Center, 431 Water St. Rich is a Port Townsend native who has invented a product that is designed to keep mois-

ture from creating mildew and attracting fungus and mold in boats, travel trailers and household closets. Rich will demonstrate the product, H2Out Space Dryers. It is a cylindrical device that has a renewable desiccant filled sleeve that is designed to absorb moisture from the air before it causes moisture related damage. Rich has also adapted the technology for use in capturing water vapor from hydraulic tanks, fuel tanks and engine systems.

Hood Canal oyster hatchery among acquisitions Pacific Seafood Group buys Coast farms Peninsula Daily News news services

CLACKAMAS, Ore. — Pacific Seafood Group of has made a significant move into the shellfish business, buying one of the largest oyster producers in the country, Coast Seafoods Co. of South Bend, Wash. Coast has oyster farms on 14,000 acres of tidelands in Willapa Bay and Grays Harbor in Washington and Humboldt Bay, Calif.

It owns the Quilcene Hatchery on Hood Canal near Quilcene, and owns 50 percent of the Penn Cove Shellfish Co. in Coupeville on Whidbey Island. It employs between 250450 people depending on the time of year, said Coast CEO John Petrie, who will remain with the company. The Northwest shellfish industry has enjoyed some banner years. Improving water conditions have contributed to strong yields for oyster growers after some difficult years — and consumer demand has remained strong even as the economy has sagged.

Shellfish has become a hotter commodity in part because it is relatively affordable compared to some fish species now selling for $15-$20 a pound. All those factors made Coast an attractive buy for Pacific, said Craig Urness, Pacific’s general counsel. “It’s our belief that this acquisition puts us in a position together to really take advantage of some strong market opportunities,” Urness said. “Coast has been a supplier to us for a long time. “Their integrated operations fit well with us geographically.” Pacific, which is about to

celebrate its 70th anniversary, is one of the titans of the U.S. seafood business. It owns a fleet of fishing boats, processing plants from Northern California to the gulf of Alaska, and a vast wholesale business catering to restaurants and retailers. The last time the privately-held, Clackamasbased company divulged its annual sales was 2005, they stood at $874 million. Pacific is a dominant buyer and processor in the West Coast of Dungeness crab, Pacific shrimp, groundfish and whiting. Pacific’s only shellfish holdings, until now, were an

Settlement: Girl dehydrated worker, who has since left DSHS, admitted under oath she did not prepare a “safety plan,” which would have detailed steps to make sure the child had regular contact with other adults. “When your social workers admit they didn’t do their job, policies are not the only problem,” Tesh said. “It appears that, as they did during the entirety of the litigation, the department continues to steadfastly deny that they were negligent in the handling of the 2005 investigation.” Shapley, the DSHS spokesman, said he didn’t see it that way. Child-welfare workers face “challenges that none

of us can understand,” he said. “They have to make decisions in the field under difficult circumstances, and sometimes we seem to expect them to foretell the future. “We’re never going to be perfect, but we’re trying all the time to improve where we can.” Both children now reside out of state. The girl is still dealing with dental issues, and both will require future counseling, but Tesh called their resiliency “inspiring.” “The girl is doing as well as can be expected,” he said. The settlement must be approved by a court.

WASHINGTON — The nation added 103,000 jobs in September, an improvement from the month before, the Labor Department said Friday. But the total includes 45,000 Verizon workers who were rehired after going on strike and were counted as job gains. Even counting those workers, the job gains weren’t enough to get the

economy going. It takes about 125,000 jobs a month just to keep up with population growth. For September, the unemployment rate stayed stuck at 9.1 percent.

Praying Muslim shuttle drivers suspended Religious breaks without clocking out, employer says The Associated Press

SEATTLE — In the three years she’s worked as a shuttle driver for Hertz at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, Zainab Aweis had always taken time out of her shift each day to pray. An observant Muslim, she prays five times a day — with one, sometimes two of those prayer times falling during her shift. “That was the one benefit of

the job,” the 20-year-old said. On Friday, she and 33 other drivers — all of them Somali Muslims — were suspended indefinitely from their jobs after they took religious breaks to pray while at work without first clocking out. A spokesman for Teamsters Local 117, which represents the workers, said it is trying to get the workers back on the job. Both the company and the union at week’s end said they were waiting to hear back from the other. While the drivers were allowed two 10-minute breaks during their work shifts during which they could pray, Teamsters offi-

cials said managers had agreed in negotiations that workers would not have to clock out and in, though the contract itself does not address the matter. And the workers and their union said Hertz had previously not required that workers clock out for prayer.

Union complaint The union said it has filed an unfair-labor-practices complaint with the National Labor Relations Board against Hertz for failing to notify the union in advance of what it called a policy change. But Hertz said the rules aren’t new; that it had been trying for

some time to enforce the terms of an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission settlement it reached with the workers two years ago that required them to clock out. A Hertz spokesman said the workers had been repeatedly told they needed to clock out and that the 34 suspended workers had not complied. “We felt it was reasonable for our Muslim employees who need to pray a couple times during the workday to clock in and clock out,” said Rich Broome, spokesman for Hertz. Broome said it’s not about pay — break time is paid time — but to ensure that workers were stay-

Buyer’s guide to new iPhone 4S It’s an upgrade of current Apple smartphone By Peter Svensson The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Apple is trotting out a new iPhone on Friday, but it’s not the iPhone 5 some were expecting. Instead, it’s a more modest upgrade, the iPhone 4S. Here are some facts to help you decide if it’s time to make the plunge. n If you own an iPhone 4: The new phone will have a faster processor and a sharper, more responsive camera. Otherwise, it’s pretty much the same. It will come with improved software, but you’ll get that as a free

update on your iPhone 4, too. As an iPhone 4 owner, you should consider the 4S only if you absolutely must have the latest and greatest, or if your old phone is broken. Since the 4S is less than two years old, your carrier will probably make you pay more than the $199 base price if you upgrade, because you haven’t “paid off” the subsidized price of your old phone yet. There’s speculation that the more significant iPhone 5 upgrade may be less than a year away, and it could add important new features that are worth waiting for. n If you own an older iPhone: Apple’s new software, iOS 5, will work on the iPhone 3GS, but not the original iPhone or 3G. Take the launch of the

iPhone 4S as a good opportunity to upgrade to a faster, more responsive phone, with a sharper screen. The big cost of owning an iPhone isn’t in the purchase price, it’s in your monthly service fees. Upgrading your phone every two years is a minor cost compared to paying your monthly bill over the same period. So take advantage of your carrier’s phone subsidy and let it treat you to a new iPhone. Because Apple charges about $600 for a phone that costs $199 in the store, it’s the phone company that eats most of the upfront cost of the phone. n If you don’t have a smartphone: iPhones are still the kings of the smartphone world, with unsurpassed access to high-quality applications. But they’re also expensive. That may not be immediately obvious in the cellphone store, where their $199 price tag (or, in the case of the iPhone 3GS, $0 price tag) looks comparable to many other phones. Carriers require contracts when selling iPhones at that price, and the available plans aren’t cheap, in part because you’ll need a data plan. In effect, you’ll be paying off that expensive phone over two years, through your monthly bill. If you want a smartphone for less, look at getting a handset that runs Google Inc.’s Android software from a no-contract carrier like Virgin Mobile, MetroPCS or Cricket. You’ll be paying $149 and up for the phone, but the monthly cost will be lower. A minor weakness of Android phones is that there are fewer good thirdparty applications available for them, but you’ll get roughly 80 percent of the functionality of an iPhone for 50 percent of the cost. n If you’re a Sprint subscriber: If you’ve nursed a longing for an iPhone but haven’t yet

On Wednesday, a few dozen people from area labor and faith organizations protested on behalf of the workers outside the Hertz counter at the airport, waving signs saying, “Respect me, Respect my religion.” The Teamsters represents about 79 drivers at Hertz — about 70 percent of whom are Muslim — earning between $9.15 and $9.95 an hour. They receive no health benefits, vacation or sick leave.

Computer virus hits military drone program The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — A computer virus that captures the strokes on a keyboard has infected networks used by pilots who control U.S. Air Force drones flown on the warfront, according to a published report. Wired magazine reported that the spyware has resisted efforts to remove it from the computers at Creech Air Force Base in Nevada, where pilots remotely fly Predator and Reaper drones in places like Iraq and Afghanistan. The story said there are no reports that classified data was lost — and that it’s uncertain if the virus was part of a directed attack or accidentally infected the networks. The Air Force said in a statement it doesn’t discuss threats to its computer networks “since that helps people looking to exploit or attack our systems to refine their approach.”

It’s also not clear if Sprint will sell only the 4S or also the cheaper 4. But it’s a fair bet that Sprint will keep its unlimited data plans as a way to lure subscribers from Verizon and AT&T, which cap monthly data usage on smartphones. It’s worth noting that the iPhone won’t support “Sprint 4G,” which is what Sprint calls Clearwire Corp.’s high-speed data network. Sprint sells a number of other smartphones that can access this network for faster Web browsing, downloads and uploads, for no additional cost. On the other hand, the Sprint iPhone 4S will most likely be able to roam internationally, a very rare feature on Sprint smartphones. n If you’re an AT&T subscriber: The Big Orange was the first carrier to place caps on the monthly data consumption of its iPhone subscribers, to keep them from overloading its network.

California puts ban on shark fin trade The Associated Press

SACRAMENTO — California’s governor announced Friday that he signed a bill banning the sale, trade and possession of shark fins to protect the world’s dwindling shark population. Gov. Jerry Brown signed AB376 over objections that the fins are used in a soup considered a delicacy in some Asian cultures. California joined Hawaii, Washington, Oregon and Guam in the ban that environmental and animal rights activists hailed for closing off Pacific ports in the U.S. to the shark fin trade. “The practice of cutting the fins off of living sharks and dumping them back in the ocean is not only cruel, but it harms the health of our oceans,” Brown wrote in a statement. The bill had split the Asian delegation in the California Legislature. Assemblyman Paul Fong, D-Cupertino, who authored the bill, said it was needed to protect endangered shark species, but others called the measure racist because the fins are used in a soup. The fins can sell for $600 a pound, and the soup can cost $80 a bowl. The California market Phone/C11 for shark-fin soup is the

largest outside Asia. During a legislative debate, Sen. Ted Lieu, D-Torrance, noted the bill would ban only part of the shark while permitting the continued consumption of shark skin or steaks. “I respect the governor’s decision and now hope the proponents of AB376 will focus on protecting sharks, such as the spiny dogfish shark, from being endangered due to consumption of its meat, such as in steaks and fish and chips,” Lieu said in a statement. Critics of shark finning, which already is restricted in U.S. waters, estimate that fishermen kill 73 million sharks each year for their fins. They said it is particularly cruel because the wounded sharks often are returned to the ocean to die after their fins are removed. “Californians can be proud of their role in giving these remarkable top predators a chance to recover their populations and helping to restore balance to our oceans,” said Assemblyman Jared Huffman, D-San Rafael, who co-authored the bill. Brown said researchers have estimated that some shark populations have declined by more than 90 percent.

U.S. targets California pot stores Letters give 45 days to shutter The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — Federal prosecutors have launched a crackdown on some pot dispensaries in California, warning the stores that they must shut down in 45 days or face criminal charges and confiscation of their property even if they are operating legally under the state’s 15-year-old medical marijuana law. In an escalation of the ongoing conflict between the U.S. government and the nation’s burgeoning medical marijuana industry, at least 16 pot shops or their landlords received letters last week stating they are violating federal drug laws, even though medical marijuana is legal in California. The state’s four U.S. attorneys were scheduled Friday to announce a broader coordinated crackdown. Their offices refused to confirm the closure orders. The Associated Press obtained copies of the letters that a prosecutor sent to at least 12 San Diego dispensaries. They state that federal

law “takes precedence over state law and applies regardless of the particular uses for which a dispensary is selling and distributing marijuana.” “Under United States law, a dispensary’s operations involving sales and distribution of marijuana are illegal and subject to criminal prosecution and civil enforcement actions,” according to the letters signed by U.S. Attorney Laura Duffy in San Diego. “Real and personal property involved in such operations are subject to seizure by and forfeiture to the United States . . . regardless of the purported purpose of the dispensary.” The move comes a little more than two months after the Obama administration toughened its stand on medical marijuana. For two years before that, federal officials had indicated they would not move aggressively against dispensaries in compliance with laws in the 16 states where pot is legal for people with doctors’ recommendations.

June memo The Department of Justice issued a policy memo to federal prosecutors in late June stating that marijuana dispensaries and licensed growers in states with medical marijuana

The effort to shutter California dispensaries appeared to be the most farreaching effort so far to put that guidance into action. “This really shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. The administration is simply making good on multiple threats issued since President Obama took office,” said Kevin Sabet, a former adviser to the president’s drug czar and a fellow at the University of Pennsylvania’s Center for

Substance Abuse Solutions. “The challenge is to balance the scarcity of law enforcement resources and the sanctity of this country’s medication approval process. “It seems like the administration is simply making good on multiple statements made previously to appropriately strike that balance.” Greg Anton, a lawyer who represents dispensary Marin Alliance for Medical Marijuana, said its landlord received an “extremely threatening” letter Wednesday invoking a federal law

that imposes additional penalties for selling drugs within 1,000 feet of schools, parks and playgrounds. The landlord was ordered to evict the 14-yearold pot club or risk imprisonment, plus forfeiture of the property and all the rent he has collected while the dispensary has been in business, Anton said. Marin Alliance’s founder “has been paying state and federal taxes for 14 years, and they have cashed all the checks,” he said. “All I hear from Obama is whining about his budget, but he has money to do

this which will actually reduce revenues.” Kris Hermes, a spokesman for the medical marijuana advocacy group Americans for Safe Access, said the warnings are part of what appears to be an attempt by the Obama administration to curb medical marijuana on multiple fronts and through multiple agencies. A series of dispensary raids in Montana, for example, involved agents from not only the FBI and U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, but the Internal Revenue Service and Environmental Protection Agency.

Virgin Galactic, which licensed the SpaceShipOne technology, began taking reservations before a commercial version was even built. Branson predicted back then that the maiden passenger flight would take off in 2007.

No launch date Other private rocketeers hunkered down in their hangars and sketched out designs to compete with Virgin Galactic. Soon a cottage industry rose. While there’s been progress made — most are in the testing stage — there’s still no launch date. “It’s tough,” said Erika Wagner of the X Prize Foundation, which sponsored the 2004 contest. “We’ve seen slower progress than a lot of people would have liked.”

Human spaceflight so far has been restricted to governments and a handful of wealthy thrill-seekers who have plunked down millions of dollars to hitch rides aboard Russian rockets to the International Space Station, which circles the Earth 250 miles high. Instead of flying all the way to orbit, current space tourism efforts are focused on suborbital trips using vehicles designed to rocket up to the edge of space then immediately descend rather than circle the Earth. Virgin Galactic promises flights to altitudes of at least 62 miles with a few minutes of weightlessness. Cost per head ranges from $100,000 to $200,000 — far cheaper than the trips to orbit but still pricey.

The addition of Sprint to the stable of iPhone carriers will probably give you the option to jump ship and get an unlimited data plan, but Sprint hasn’t confirmed this yet. On the other hand, Sprint’s data speeds are lower than AT&T’s, and it doesn’t have the network of Wi-Fi hotspots that AT&T does. AT&T will still be the only U.S. carrier to sell the iPhone 3GS, a two-year old model.

The price will be cut to nothing, from $49. But AT&T still won’t sell the phone for use on prepaid plans, which could yield substantial savings. n If you’re a Verizon subscriber: One thing that’s missing from the iPhone 4S is the ability to tap into Verizon’s latest high-speed data networks, which uses the so-called “LTE” technology.

As a result, details about progress are hard to come by. Scaled Composites, which designed SpaceShipOne and is building a passenger version for Virgin Galactic, is publicityshy, but posts results of test flights on its website. Blue Origin is the most tight-lipped.

John Gedmark, executive director of the Commercial Spaceflight Federation, a trade group that represents suborbital and orbital space companies, is pleased with the testing despite the longer-thanexpected time frame to get off the ground. “Everything in aerospace always takes longer that you originally think,” he said. Scaled Composites, considered by many in the industry as the front-runner, has been conducting glide tests in the Mojave Desert since last year. The project suffered a setback in 2007 after a deadly explosion during testing to develop the propellant flow system for the hybrid rocket motor.


LOS ANGELES — Venture capitalist Alan Walton has trekked to the North Pole, climbed Mount Kilimanjaro and skydived over Mount Everest. A hop into space to enjoy a few minutes of weightlessness would have been the ultimate adventure. After waiting seven years to fly aboard Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic spaceline, Walton gave up on the dream and asked for a $200,000 ticket refund on his 75th birthday this past spring. Walton, who was among the first 100 customers to sign up, is not as spry as he used to be, and he’s concerned about the project delays. “This was a decision I wish I didn’t have to make,” he said recently. But “it was time.” Promises of space travel for the masses reached a euphoric pitch in 2004 when the experimental SpaceShipOne air-launched over the Mojave Desert and became the first privately financed, manned spacecraft to dash into space. It won the $10 million Ansari X Prize on Oct. 4, 2004, for accomplishing the feat twice in two weeks. The flights were hailed by space enthusiasts as a leap toward opening the

Commercial service will start up after the company gets a license from the Federal Aviation Administration, he said. About 450 ticket-holders are in line to fly with Virgin Galactic. A small number of people — fewer than 10 — dropped out due to medical and other reasons, Whitesides said. “Folks are tremendously loyal and excited,” he said. “They want us to do it safely. They want us to take our time and make sure we got it right.” Even if space tourism takes off, it’s unclear whether there’s a strong market for joy rides to view the curvature of the Earth, said space policy expert John Logsdon of George Washington University. “In the current economic climate, how many people have that level of discretionary money?” he said.

Prairie energy goes up in flames Gas deliberately burned off by oil companies By Clifford Krauss The New York Times

NEW TOWN, N.D. — Across western North Dakota, hundreds of fires rise above fields of wheat and sunflowers and bales of hay. At night, they illuminate the prairie skies like giant fireflies. They are not wildfires caused by lightning strikes or other acts of nature, but the deliberate burning of natural gas by oil companies rushing to extract oil from the Bakken shale field and take advantage of the high price of crude. The gas bubbles up alongside the far more valuable oil, and with less economic incentive to capture it, the drillers treat the gas as waste and simply burn it. Every day, more than 100 million cubic feet of natural gas is flared this way — enough energy to heat half a million homes for a day.

Tons of CO2 in atmosphere The flared gas also spews at least two million tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere every year, as much as 384,000 cars or a medium-size coal-fired power plant would emit, alarming some environmentalists. All told, 30 percent of the natural gas produced in North Dakota is burned as waste. No other major domestic oil field currently flares close to that much, though the practice is still common in countries like Russia, Nigeria and Iran. With few government regulations that limit the flaring, more burning is also taking place in the Eagle Ford shale field in Texas, and some environmentalists and industry executives say that it could happen in Oklahoma, Arkansas and Ohio, too, as drilling expands in new fields there

unlocked by techniques like hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling. “North Dakota is not as bad as Kazakhstan, but this is not what you would expect a civilized, efficient society to do: to flare off a perfectly good product just because it’s expensive to bring to market,” said Michael E. Webber, associate director of the Center for International Energy and Environmental Policy at the University of Texas at Austin. The oil companies say economic reality is driving the flaring in the Bakken, the biggest oil field discovered in the United States in four decades. They argue that they cannot afford to pay for pipelines and processing plants to capture and sell the gas until they actually drill oil wells and calculate how much gas will bubble out of the oil. And reinjection of the carbon dioxide, commonly done in conventional oil fields, is more difficult and expensive in less permeable shale fields. “This field covers 15,000 square miles, so it takes time to go and test what’s there and then build a gathering system and plant,” said Harold G. Hamm, chief executive of Continental Resources, one of the biggest oil producers in the Bakken. The widespread flaring is a step backward for a domestic energy industry.

Prices have plunged Most oil and gas fields in the United States have well-developed facilities to gather and process gas. But the recent rise of shale drilling has changed the economic calculus. Natural gas prices have plunged since 2008 as vast shale fields laden with gas are tapped through hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling. Meanwhile, those same techniques have opened up other shale fields rich with oil. With oil prices high amid

Thirty percent of the natural gas extracted in North Dakota is flared off, like this gas near Ray, N.D. strong global demand and leases as short as five years for land in the Bakken, drillers have found it more profitable to just grab the oil and burn the gas. Building out the infrastructure to handle gas would substantially raise costs and slow development, and efforts so far to use the gas for electrical generation have had limited success because it contains components that burn too hot. “I’ll tell you why people flare: It’s cheap,” said Troy Anderson, lead operator of a North Dakota gas-processing plant owned by Whiting Petroleum. “Pipelines are expensive. “You have to maintain them. You need permits to build them. They are a pain.” Although capturing the gas is the best option, scientists say that flaring is better for the environment than venting the gas into the atmosphere. Pure natural gas is mostly methane, which has far greater heat-trapping qualities than carbon dioxide. Regulations on flaring are loose in North Dakota, as they are

in most states, and there are no current federal regulations on flaring at oil and gas wells. That is largely because flaring has not been a significant concern since the 1970s, when the federal government insisted that oil companies re-inject gas into Alaska’s North Slope rather than flare it. So far, North Dakota health officials say that flaring has not produced any serious air pollution problems.

EPA proposal But flaring could eventually become another environmental headache for an industry already under attack over concerns that hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking, could jeopardize water quality. The federal Environmental Protection Agency has recently proposed new air emissions standards for fracked wells, and it has also begun to ask oil companies to compile data on greenhouse gas emissions from drilling and other operations. “One day a regulator is going to say, ‘I’m not going to give you

Sexually transmitted . . . cancer? Cervical disease can become oral type, too The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — A prolonged sore throat once was considered a cancer worry mainly for smokers and drinkers. Today there’s another risk: A sexually transmitted virus is fueling a rise in oral cancer. The HPV virus is best known for causing cervical cancer. But it can cause cancer in the upper throat, too, and a new study says HPV-positive tumors now account for a majority of these cases of what is called oropharyngeal cancer. If that trend continues, that type of oral cancer will become the nation’s main HPV-related cancer within the decade, surpassing cer-

vical cancer, researchers from Ohio State University and the National Cancer Institute reported last week. “There is an urgency to try to figure out how to prevent this,” says Dr. Amy Chen of the American Cancer Society and Emory University, who wasn’t part of the new research. While women sometimes get oral cancer caused by the HPV, the risk is greatest and rising among men, researchers reported in the current Journal of Clinical Oncology.

Nobody knows why No one knows why, but it begs the question of whether the vaccine given to girls and young women to protect against cervical cancer also might protect against oral HPV. There are nearly 10,000 new cases of oropharyngeal cancer a year, and overall incidence has risen by 28

Relationship unclear It’s not known if oral HPV acts similarly or even is as common. Nor is it clear if oral sex is the only way it’s transmitted, cautions Dr. Gregory Masters of the American Society for Clinical Oncology, an oncologist at Delaware’s Helen Graham Cancer Center. Regardless, just over 11,000 cases of cervical cancer will be diagnosed this year, a number that has been dropping steadily thanks to better Pap smears. (It’s too soon to know what difference vaccination will make.) Gillison’s team calculated that annual cases of cervical cancer will drop to 7,700 by 2020 — compared with about 8,700 cases of HPV-positive oropharyngeal cancer by then, about 7,400 of them in men.

DETROIT — General Motors says it’s delaying plans to add a second shift at the factory that makes its Chevrolet Volt electric cars. The company says it has found ways to make one shift more efficient and produce the same number of cars as two shifts. Spokesman Chris Lee says GM still will add 300

workers at the DetroitHamtramck plant — but not a second shift — by the end of this year to make more Volts. GM won’t add a second shift until late 2012 as the plant starts building the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu midsize sedan. GM says demand for the Volt still is strong, and it’s sticking with plans to build 60,000 next year.

That raises questions about gender differences in sexual behavior or whether oral HPV infection is likely to linger longer in men.

percent since 1988 even as other types of head-andneck cancer have been declining. Tobacco and alcohol have long been the main causes of these tumors, which occur in the tonsils, base of the tongue and upper throat. But over the past few years, studies have shown HPV is playing a role in that rise, probably due to an increase in oral sex even as tobacco use was dropping. The new study took a closer look, tracking HPV over time by directly testing tumor tissue from 271 patients that had been stored in cancer registries in Hawaii, Iowa and Los Angeles. The proportion that were HPV-positive rose from just 16 percent in the late 1980s to nearly 73 percent by the early 2000s. Translate that to the overall population, and the researchers concluded that incidence rates of the HPVpositive tumors more than tripled while HPV-negative tumors dropped by half. Oral cancer has always been a bigger threat to men than women. Gillison says women account for only about 1 in 4 cases, and their incidence is holding steady while men’s is rising.

one more permit until you tell me what you are going to do with the gas,’” said Charif Souki, chief executive of Cheniere Energy, who hopes to eventually export the excess gas in liquefied form. Environmentalists are also beginning to express alarm. “It’s time for the regulators to take a hard look at the impacts of flaring and make sure that available solutions to the flaring problem are required before there is any further widespread expansion of the practice,” said Amy Mall, senior policy analyst at the Natural Resources Defense Council. Some of the companies working in North Dakota, including Whiting, are investing $3 billion over the next three years in pipelines and several large processing plants to deliver gas to Midwest markets rather than burn it. Whiting, a Colorado company that was one of the early explorers in the Bakken, sees particular value in the gas found here because it contains large amounts of propane and butane that it can extract and sell at a profit in addition to the gas itself.

Legacy of war decade: 1 million jobless veterans Peninsula Daily News news services

WASHINGTON — Democrats and Republicans rarely agree on anything in Washington, but there’s a growing bipartisan sense that the private sector will have to do much more to help ease chronically high unemployment among veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. In August, President Obama called on businesses to hire or train 100,000 unemployed veterans by the end of 2013. Microsoft answered that challenge with a pledge to train 10,000 of them. Now, as part of his $447 billion jobs package, Obama wants Congress to approve a plan that would provide businesses with a tax credit of $2,400 to $9,600 for each veteran they hire, the amount depending on whether they’re disabled and how long they’ve been unemployed. A million veterans already are unemployed, and more than a million are expected to leave the military by 2016. Julius Clemente, 33, an Iraq veteran from the Seattle suburb of Kirkland, told a congressional panel Thursday there will be “systematic chaos” if more can’t find jobs or get help going to college. “The path we now face from the military to college — life is more complicated and challenging than what I thought,” Clemente told lawmakers. Congress appears eager to respond, though there’s no consensus on a specific plan. At a meeting of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee, Washington state’s Sen. Patty Murray, D-Bothell, the chairwoman, called veterans “the most employable group of people in the world.” “They know how to show up for work for time, they’ve got tremendous skills, and they have great attitudes,” she said. “And they have just so much to offer to our country.” Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina, the panel’s top Republican, said veterans “can’t be that valuable to this country and not that valuable to American business.” “We’ve just got to find a way to highlight that to corporate America.”

Dow, Saudis OK accord The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Dow Chemical Co. and the Saudi Arabian Oil Co. said Saturday that they signed an agreement that advances their plan to build one of the world’s biggest chemical plants in Saudi Arabia. The $20 billion complex is expected to begin production in 2015. The two companies agreed to a joint venture for Sadara Chemical Co., which will own the plant being built in the desert kingdom. The companies estimate

it will generate about $10 billion in revenue annually within a few years of operation. Dow and Saudi Aramco together are investing about $12 billion, and a portion of Sadara will be sold to shareholders in a public offering in 2013 or 2014. The complex, with 26 manufacturing units, will be the largest integrated chemical facility ever built in one go, the companies said. It will make chemicals and plastics for the energy, transportation and consumer products industries.

Mill shuts down COSMOPOLIS — The Cosmo Specialty Fibers pulp mill in the southwest Grays Harbor County town of Cosmopolis was shut down Friday while company and city employees repaired a leak in a pipe that carries treated liquid to settling ponds. Residents saw foam gurgling out of the ground Thursday afternoon. The mill resumed operations Saturday, said spokesman Bob Buchan. The Cosmo mill reopened this year under a new owner after being closed four years. It makes a pulp that is combined with other materials to create a variety of products, including plastics and rayon for clothing.

Slogan jettisoned VICTORIA — The British Columbia government’s “Best Place on Earth” slogan has been consigned to the dust bin of provincial brand history. Premier Christy Clark’s government has also changed the province’s international brand of “Canada’s Pacific Gateway” to “Canada Starts Here.” “Canada Starts Here” is also the brand used in the marketing of Clark’s new jobs strategy. The decision to jettison “Best Place on Earth” from government letterhead and other materials has nothing to do with any change in the prideful phrase’s accuracy, said David Greer, communications director with the Ministry of Labour, Citizens’ Services and Open Government. “The change in leadership signaled a change in how government brands its products and materials,” Greer said. B.C.’s tourism brand continues to be the venerable “Super Natural British Columbia.”

Nation/World Mortgage at 3.94% WASHINGTON – The average rate on the 30-year fixed mortgage has fallen below 4 percent for the first time ever — to 3.94 percent. For those who can qualify, it’s an extraordinary opportunity to buy a home or refinance. On Thursday, Freddie Mac said the average rate dropped from 4.01 percent last week, the previous low. The average rate on a 15-year fixed loan, a popular refinancing option, dipped to 3.26 percent, also a record. The 15-year loan has fallen for six straight weeks. Mortgage rates are now lower than they were in

the early 1950s, when the average rate reached 4.08 percent for a few months, according to the National Bureau of Economic Research. Back then, mortgages typically lasted just 20 or 25 years. Still, rates have been below 5 percent for all but two weeks in the past year and that has done little to boost home sales. This year is shaping up to be among the worst for sales of previously occupied homes in 14 years.

Disney CEO stays LOS ANGELES — Disney CEO Robert Iger will remain in his job through March 2015 and then serve as executive chairman for an additional 15 months to help break in a new chief executive, the company said Friday. The definite end to what will be a decadelong tenure suggests the eventual promotion of one of his Iger two closest lieutenants, either Jay Rasulo, 55, the chief financial officer, or Tom Staggs, 50, chairman of the parks division. Iger, 60, took the reins of The Walt Disney Co. in September 2005 after the tumultuous ouster of Michael Eisner following a shareholder revolt led by Roy Disney, the late nephew of the company’s founder.

Gas prices down PORT ANGELES — North Olympic Peninsula motorists continue to see lower prices at the pumps. The average price of regular gasoline on Saturday was $3.79, down 6 cents from last week, a Peninsula Daily News survey showed. Meanwhile, the national average price fell 6 cents to $3.39. The Washington state average is $3.78. Analysts say the falling prices at the pump are mostly due to lower crude oil prices and the recent switch to less expensive fall/ winter blended gasoline. But benchmark oil in New York was up 39 cents Friday to end at $82.98 a barrel.

Parents worry about son’s older teammates MY 10-YEAR-OLD SON has been asked to play on a select soccer team for the upcoming fall. However, the boys are all at least one to two years older. While he is an excellent player, we are concerned with the age difference and the other boys possibly being rough with him. What questions can we ask the coach to make a better decision on allowing him to participate?

meeting scheduled for the parents to discuss specific goals of the team. It’s pretty standard procedure that every parent is required to attend. Listen to what the coach has to say, read any materials handed out and then ask questions if you still have concerns. One of the questions could pertain to roughhousing among team members, if it is not covered. You can also attend practices and check out whether or not the guys seem to flow well together as a group. However, there is always going to be one or

two kids who are going to give the new guy a bit of a hard time, to sort of speak, but this happens in just about any situation when there are individuals who have been involved with each other as friends and teammates for an extended length of time. Your son apparently does very well with soccer since he has been recruited to join the team. I am not sure whether or not your son will be playing alongside any boys that he already knows, but this might be a plus, since you seem to be focused on the fact that the majority of the players are older.

The bottom line is that if your son wants to play on the team and he is comfortable doing so, let him try to keep a positive attitude about the experience.

Can you help? There are around 10 kids who go to the bus stop to wait for the bus every morning. They are all pretty wellbehaved except for the two oldest, who are in fifth grade. Our daughter is in the fourth grade, and they love to tease her about a variety of things. She is not really com-

plaining but has already texted me twice to come pick her up and take her to school. However, the very next day she wants to go back up to the bus stop. Should I go get her if she texts or make her stick to her decision of going there in the first place?

Readers try to answer woman’s questions about sexual assault LAST WEEK, WE heard from Natalie, the baby sitter, who was sexually assaulted by two fathers while they were driving her home. She asked many questions about the nature of sexual abuse. Here are some of your answers . . .

Wanda “Did these men deserve to be labeled child molesters or sex offenders?” Yes. They committed a premeditated assault. “Did they deserve to go to jail or lose their wives and families over this?” Jail? Yes. Wives and families? I’d say that was the choice of their wives. The offenders should have had to deal with the consequences of their actions, whatever they would be. “I know Mr. Whatever

read Playboy because I saw it in the bathroom. Is this where he learned to fantasize about making out with the baby sitter?” No. Reading and looking at porn doesn’t make someone violent. That tendency is innate, in my opinion. Don’t forget, lots of people look at porn and are not violent. I also think if we blame porn, we lessen the offenders’ accountability. I strongly disagree with that. “Was alcohol the deciding factor?” Alcohol played a role. People do things when

they’re intoxicated that they wouldn’t do sober. But again, let’s not blame alcohol. These men chose to drink. Blame them. “Was this something they never would have done on their own, but with a friend they felt free to try?” Maybe. “Were they just perverts?” Maybe. I’d be curious to know what else they’d done that went unreported. I find it hard to believe that two normal men just up and assaulted a 15-year-old. I’d bet they had histories of violent or sexually aggressive behavior.

Mike Natalie, all of us have fantasies, whether or not we read Playboy. Trying to make a fantasy come true — and turning someone into a vic-

tim in the process — is another matter entirely. Alcohol wasn’t the deciding factor. The deciding factor was an utter lack of character on the part of the two dads. Booze only numbed their fear and shame of doing something they knew was so wrong. And yes, the company of another friend does provide courage to do the deed. The sad part is, your mother thought you’d done something to bring this on, and part of you might still want to believe that. Don’t.

Treena They were perverts, and Natalie did nothing to bring it on. There’s a reason women and girls carry their keys in their hands — sharp end pointed out — or mace in their purses. Turn

JOYCE ­— Jan Thatcher Kassulke Adams remembers how she felt while walking down the aisle. She was just 18, with her handsome, athletic bridegroom at her side. Deep in love, the couple’s life stretched out before them on July 7, 1963, the day of Jan Thatcher’s marriage to the late Karl Kassulke, the Drake University star who would become a storied player with the Minnesota Vikings. “I thought I knew everything,” Adams recalled in an interview at the Freshwater Bay home she shares with her husband of 11 years, Dmitri Gerasimenko. Adams, then a girl from Boone, Iowa, was to learn more about life, fame and heartbreak than she could have imagined. Turn

Her friends just know that despite her disabilities, despite the fact that she’ll turn 71 this December, Van Brocklin loves to work. “Carole never sits around,” said Phyllis Lehman, a coworker at the Serenity store at 502 E.

She is a good player and a good example for other women. “She is young, in her 20s. I have an affinity for her, I guess, because I can see myself in her when I was that age.”

“Gwyneth Paltrow. “I think she shows a soulful balance between her life as a mother and her acting career. “I saw her in the movie ‘Shakespeare in Love.’ I know more about her as a regular person than an actress. She has a recipe book out called My Father’s Daughter. “I’m a single mom and work a lot and have an unglamorous life, so it would be nice to be her.”

“Angelina Jolie, the actress. “She makes a lot of money and is a good actress. At my age, looking at the money is a big draw. She has been called the world’s most beautiful woman. “I saw her in ‘Mr. and Mrs. Smith.’ I think she does a lot of humanitarian causes, too. “I dream about that Hollywood lifestyle.

Glenn It’s silly to think that Mr. Whatever needed Playboy to teach him “to fantasize about making out with the baby-sitter.” All he needed were his hormones and lack of a moral code and common decency. The two men were definitely child molesters, but not necessarily perverts, and it’s possible they needed the “safety in numbers” ploy to spur them on.

Meredith This story is a thousand times worse because there were two men involved. Even if Natalie had reported it, the two of them could have denied everything and made her sound like a little girl with a big imagination.

Adams: Book chronicles life with NFL star Continued from 3 In her new book, Football Wife: Coming of Age with the NFL as Mrs. Karl Kassulke, Adams relives much of the pain ­— without bitterness. She tells a vividly remembered story, about raising her two sons Kory and Kurt, about finishing medical school and about starting a new life after her fairy-tale marriage collapsed. Adams and Kassulke were married for nine tumultuous years. During those years, she watched her husband change from a family man to someone who was unpredictable, unfaithful and damaged.

Two traumas triggered it, she said. One was her near-death from cancer, and the other was Kassulke’s death in 2008 from a sudden heart attack. At his funeral, memories washed over her. She began what she thought would be a personal journal of recollection. But after some weeks of furious writing, she realized her story is relevant to others, others who may be swept up in young love and the cult of celebrity. Using Franklin Green Publishing, she released her book this summer.

to educate parents and coaches about concussioncaused brain damage. Adams and Kassulke were nothing alike when they fell in love. She was a musician and an academic with her sights set on medical school; he was the son of a Milwaukee factory worker. But, Adams said, those differences weren’t what drove them apart.

NFL lifestyle After their marriage, Kassulke’s drinking and drug use worsened, in part because of the partying lifestyle Adams said pervaded the NFL. This, coupled with the brain damage, or chronic traumatic encephalopathy, destroyed their union. CTE, Adams writes, is a progressive disorder found in people who have suffered multiple concussions and other head injuries while playing football or hockey or while in the boxing ring.

Adams: Refused to be victim of life’s trials Continued from 9

Book available from Peninsula bookstores, online

Adams struggled with Kassulke’s erratic behavior for years before the deciding event happened. While a medical student, she was working an externship in Wales in 1971 when Kassulke came to visit. They set out with their two boys on a sightseeing trip that included the London Zoo, where they marveled at the aardvark, the bears, the koala and other creatures. The next day, the couple are riding the train to Cardiff when Adams asks her husband which zoo animal was his favorite. “You must be crazy,” he tells her. “We didn’t go to any zoo.” Adams sits back, heart racing. But she stays calm, for Kory and Kurt’s sake.

FOOTBALL WIFE: COMING of Age with the NFL as Mrs. Karl Kassulke by Jan Thatcher Adams can be ordered in print or electronic form from local bookstores, via sites such as Amazon. com and from Adams’ website, www.Football Peninsula Woman

Catalyst Then, on the last night before Kassulke is to return home for the Vikings training camp, Adams mentions that a neighbor had asked for an autographed photo of him. “He looks blankly at me — he’s driving — and out of nowhere, he whacks my forehead at the hairline with his balled fist,” Adams writes. “Blood streams down my face from the inch-long gash in my hair, caused by his wedding ring. He doesn’t even react at first, and I tell him to turn the car around, because I have to go to the emergency room.” She walks into the ER alone; Kassulke waits in the car as she tells the doctor she was hit by a sharp cupboard door. This would be the first and only time her husband struck her, Adams decides. “I will never be a victim,” she vows. “In fact, Karl’s behavior has helped me understand an essen-

Karl has helped me to understand I can always make the choice to move forward, rather than create an identity for myself as ‘poor Jan.’” Yet Adams acknowledges that she did “the wrong thing” after leaving Kassulke: “I jumped to

another man,” the highly charismatic Dr. Patrick Adams. After she graduated from medical school, they built a clinic together in Minnesota.

On to Russia They were married 25 years, but Patrick, too, was to betray her by being unfaithful. She left him and traveled to Russia with Patch Adams — no relation — to clown in hos-

pitals and children’s homes through the late 1990s. Her career, as well as raising her sons and playing the cello in orchestras and singing in vocal groups, kept Adams beyond busy. “I am tough,” she said with a nod of her head. “I was raised to believe that things will turn out, if you keep at it.” Adams was to meet another man — who started out purely a friend

— in Russia. Dmitri, or Dima as his family calls him, is a Ukrainian-born actor who is 11 years her junior. Their friendship developed over about three years; after he obtained a visa and came to the United States to pursue an acting career here, they knew they wanted to marry. They wed in 2000, and have since split their time between Shakopee, Minn., where Dima works in theater, and Joyce. Adams and her second husband, Patrick, discovered the North Olympic Peninsula while on vacation in British Columbia in 1986. They bought property in the woods west of Port Angeles — and Adams had to struggle to keep it when they divorced. She later hired architect Sarah Susanka, author of The Not So Big House, to design her home; their shared philosophy is to add rich details to a more compact space instead of building a sprawling “starter castle.” But Adams’ challenges were a long way from over. In 2007, doctors found a cancerous tumor above her soft palate. Her treatment was daily radiation — the worst pain she had ever experienced. It was Dima who got her through it. He would sit at her bedside, rubbing her head for four or five hours at a time. Through it all, he was simply steadfast.

“Without him, I wouldn’t be alive,” she said. “There is no question.” Adams feels strong now; surgery, radiation and her family’s love have so far defeated the cancer. “I finally got it right,” she said of her marriage. “My husband is my joy.” “I am an introvert, but it gives me joy to be around the people I care about: my husband, my kids, my stepkids.” Those six stepchildren from her marriage to Patrick Adams are still in her life; “I didn’t divorce them,” she said. Now Adams wants to practice medicine again, in an emergency room or urgent care clinic. She’s considering her options in that realm, as she plans to spend the holidays in Minnesota, where Dima will act in Christmas and New Year’s productions. The couple plans to return to their Freshwater Bay house by February. On a daily basis, “I practice gratitude,” Adams said. “Every morning, I am grateful — to get in a nice, hot bathtub, and to have another day.” This outlook helps one weather storms small and large, she believes. Then Adams pauses to joke about herself. “I seem to be one of those people who learns really well — the hard way.”

Previous efforts riddled with problems, ended By Sam Borden New York Times

WASHINGTON — The NFL’s first attempt at a long-range study on the effects of concussions was riddled with problems from the manner in which data was collected to conflicts of interest for those overseeing it. After criticism from outside experts and even members of Congress, the study was shut down by the league in late 2009. Nearly two years later, however, the NFL’s committee on concussion research is planning a considerably broader study — an effort that could begin gathering data as soon as next season, according to one of the doctors involved. The doctor, Mitchel S. Berger, the chairman of the neurological surgery department at the University of California San Francisco, said Monday he and the NFL’s subcommittee on former players and longterm effects of brain and spine injury had been holding conference calls regarding the study every two weeks with representatives from the players’ union. He added that he hoped to make a final presentation to the union and Commissioner Roger Goodell “in the near future.” Berger said he was

“Because the prevalence of serious problems in that younger age group is less common and obvious, you have to look at so many more individuals.”

NFL players was pursuing a more thorough examination of active players in hopes of identifying potential genetic conditions that might make a player predisposed to cognitive issues later in life. Goodell also spoke about the effects of current rule changes designed to increase player safety and the possibility of other changes. Goodell would not rule out instituting rules regarding the three-point stance, which linemen use on nearly every play before launching themselves, often headfirst, into opposing players. “We’re going to consider everything,” he told reporters.

Older group

Earlier studies’ failure Berger said earlier studies failed to properly assess the effect of previous injuries on a subject. The new model, he said, is a “prospective longitudinal study,” which does not just evaluate a subject but tracks it for an extended period. Specifically, Berger said, the study will include about 1,400 people, aged 45 to 59, and divided into three groups. The first group will be retired NFL players; the second will be people who played college football but never professionally; and

A similar study, with three groups featuring the same characteristics but for people aged 60 to 75, will also be conducted, involving about 400 subjects, Berger said. “Because the prevalence of serious problems in that younger age group is less common and obvious,” he said, “you have to look at so many more individuals.” Berger explained the study at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center here, where moments earlier, Goodell had spoken at the 2011 Congress of Neurological Surgeons. In his remarks, Goodell

Mastering the Art of French Cooking goes digital By Julie Bosman

the book.” Some elements of the 752-page print edition, which has sold 2.5 million copies, have been lost in the digital version. The delicate font used in the book, announcing recipes like Fricassée de Poulet à l’Ancienne and Moules au Beurre d’Escargot, could not be reproduced in the e-book version.


And the book is better experienced on tablets than on dedicated e-readers. While it is possible to read it on a black-and-white Kindle or Nook, many of the design elements cannot be viewed on those devices. Still, eager food writers have hailed the release as “a milestone of sorts,” as the blogger Cookbook Man noted this week. “Since
