Snow at quarter normal depth

Brrring in the new year

Olympic levels deemed ‘pathetic’ BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS


About 160 people jump into Mystery Bay for the Nordland New Year’s Day plunge. Below, Sarah Allen, 14, a competitive swimmer, makes a splash at the event.


NORDLAND — The 20th annual Mystery Bay Polar Bear Plunge seemed to be over not long after it started Wednesday, as an estimated 160 jumped in and out of the water in about 15 minutes. This was an increase from last year’s total of 120, with about 250 spectators coming down to watch the fun. “It gives me a chance to do something all to myself; it’s totally invigorating,” said Marc Gordon of Chimacum, who jumped in for the 13th consecutive year. Gordon wore a standard swimsuit for Wednesday’s plunge but has worn costumes in past years. Once, he even took the plunge in a wedding dress.

“I’ve been trying to get my dad to do this, but he won’t participate,” Gordon said. “I see all these people do incredible things for their health, but they are terrified to go into the water for 10 seconds.”

Big annual difference

Colder than planned

By contrast, the Olympic snowpack was 211 percent of normal in January 2013. Pattee said the current conditions in the Olympics are drier than in the most recent big drought year of 2005. The Washington Cascades are faring only slightly better. Basins that feed north Puget Sound had a combined 63 percent snowpack Tuesday. Central and south Sound basins reported 42 percent and 46 percent snowpacks, respectively. Central Washington was about 50 percent of normal, while Northwest Oregon basins were about 25 percent of normal, according to the Natural Resources Conservation Service. Normal is defined as the median snowpack taken from 1981 to 2010.

Jamie Fields of Everett made his first jump this year, putting “terrified” into perspective. “It was much colder than I expected,” he said. “It was instant pain which I felt as soon as my system kicked in.” The jumpers ranged from children to senior citizens. One of the youngest was Hayden Sawyer, 7, a secondgrader at Chimacum Elementary School. TURN


PORT ANGELES — Water content in the Olympic Mountains snowpack was a “pathetic” 24 percent of normal heading into the new year, a water supply specialist said. But Scott Pattee of the Natural Resources Conservation Service in Mount Vernon said it’s too soon to make predictions about next summer’s water supply. “Usually in the early season like this, things are still on the fence,” Pattee said. “We could have some big months.” It may take a few big months for the snow water equivalent in the Olympics to catch up to normal amounts. Snow water equivalent, which measures water content, was 32 percent of normal at the 5,010-foot-high Waterhole snow telemetry site near Hurricane Ridge on Tuesday. It was 17 percent of normal at 3,960-foot Mount Crag in East Jefferson County and just 12 percent of normal at the 4,010-foot telemetry site in the upper Dungeness River drainage.

A3 Briefly: Nation Texas women make bid for political history AUSTIN, Texas — While women still have yet to run many statehouses, two Texas Democrats are going for a new kind of history in 2014: winning as an all-female ticket. Woven into one of the nation’s most intriguing gubernatorial races this year is whether Democrat Wendy Davis, whose 11-hour Davis filibuster over abortion restrictions catapulted the state senator to national fame this summer, can not only overcome long odds in a fiercely Republican state but pull off a political first. If Davis and fellow state Sen. Leticia Van de Putte, who is running for lieutenant governor, prevail in their March primaries as expected, they’ll form what political experts say is only the fifth time in at least the past 20 years that a party has nominated two women for a state’s top offices. None of these pairings has ever won — nor have a woman governor and lieutenant governor ever served concurrently. The last two-woman ticket to try was steamrolled in November by New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie on his easy path to re-election.

Minneapolis fire MINNEAPOLIS — A billowing fire engulfed a three-story building near downtown Wednesday morning, sending 13 people to hospitals with injuries ranging from burns to trauma associated with falls. Officials said six of those injuries were critical, but no fatalities were reported. An explosion was reported at about 8:15 a.m., and within minutes, a fire raged through the building, said Robert Ball, a spokesman for Hennepin County Emergency Medical Services. Paramedics responded to find victims on the ground, some with injuries that suggested they may have fallen multiple stories.

Year’s first snowstorm HARTFORD, Conn. — Residents in New England and parts of New York began preparing Wednesday for a winter storm that will help usher in 2014 with snow and frigid temperatures across much of the region. Snow is expected to begin falling overnight in some areas, promising a messy commute for the first business day of the new year, but the full storm isn’t expected to hit until later today. As much as a foot of snow or more is forecast for some areas overnight tonight into Friday, and temperatures are expected to plummet, with some areas seeing highs just above zero. Near blizzard conditions are forecast for areas along the coast. The Associated Press

Justice impedes law’s birth control mandate Late injunction trips up health care legislation BY JESSE J. HOLLAND THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court has thrown a hitch into President Barack Obama’s new health care law by blocking a requirement that some religion-affiliated organizations provide health insurance that includes birth control. Justice Sonia Sotomayor late Tuesday night decided to block implementation of the contraceptive coverage requirement, only hours before the law’s insurance coverage went into effect on New Year’s Day. Her decision, which came after federal court filings by Catholicaffiliated groups from around the nation in hopes of delaying the requirements, throws a part of the president’s signature law into

temporary disarray. At least one federal appeals court agreed with Sotomayor, issuing its own stay against part of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. The White House issued a statement Wednesday saying the administration is confident that its rules “strike the balance of providing women with free contraceptive coverage while preventing nonprofit religious organizations with religious objections to contraceptive coverage from having to contract, arrange, pay or refer for such coverage.”

against applicants the contraceptive coverage requirements imposed by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act,” Sotomayor said in the Sotomayor order. Sotomayor, who was in New York on Tuesday night to lead the final 60-second countdown and push the ceremonial button to signal the descent of the Times Square New Year’s Eve ball, gave government officials until Friday to respond to her order.

Responding to Denver group Sotomayor acted on a request from an organization of Catholic nuns in Denver, the Little Sisters of the Poor Home for the Aged. Its request for an emergency stay had been denied earlier in the day by a federal appeals court. The government is “temporarily enjoined from enforcing

Friday decision A decision on whether to make the temporary injunction permanent or dissolve it likely won’t be made before then. “The government has lots of ways to deliver contraceptives to people,” said Mark Rienzi, a lawyer for the nuns. “It doesn’t need to force nuns to participate.”

Briefly: World Palestinian ambassador killed by blast PRAGUE — The Palestinian ambassador to the Czech Republic died Wednesday in a blast that occurred when he opened an old safe that had been left untouched for more than 20 years, officials said. Ambassador Jamel alJamal, 56, was at home with his family at the time of the explosion, according to Palestinian Embassy Al-Jamal spokesman Nabil El-Fahel. Al-Jamal was seriously injured and rushed to a hospital where he died, according to police spokeswoman Andrea Zoulova. Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad Malki said no foul play was suspected, noting that the safe had been left untouched for more than 20 years. The safe originally came from a building that once housed the Palestinian Liberation Organization’s offices in the 1980s.

Border crossed BEIRUT — Syrian warplanes bombed a range of barren hills inside Lebanon on

Wednesday, wounding at least 10 Syrians who were rushed to hospital in a nearby Lebanese town, Beirut’s state-run National News Agency said. Cross-border strikes have been particularly intense this week around the town of Arsal, where thousands of Syrians have fled to escape their country’s civil war over the past months. Two Arsal residents said a wounded woman brought to the town after Wednesday’s air raid had died. Arsal is on the other side of Syria’s rugged Qalamoun region where the government has been on the offensive for weeks, capturing a number of towns and villages in the area.

Peace talks to open JUBA, South Sudan — Negotiators from South Sudan’s two warring sides arrived Wednesday in Ethiopia for peace talks, and a U.N. official urged both forces to bring the world’s newest country “back from the brink.” Fighting continued in Bor, 75 miles from the capital of Juba, a government official said. Bor, the capital of Jonglei state, is the center of ethnically based violence stemming from the political rivalry between President Salva Kiir and ousted Vice President Riek Machar, the rebel leader accused of mounting a failed coup attempt. The fighting has killed more than 1,000 people, the U.N. said. The Associated Press

FORMER FIRST LADY Barbara Bush remains hospitalized with a respiratory-related issue, but her condition hasn’t changed, a spokesman for her husband’s office said Wednesday. Bush, 88, was admitted to Houston Methodist Hospital on Monday, though it wasn’t announced until former President George H.W.

Bush and her husband, the 41st president, live in Houston.

MASSACHUSETTS POLICE ARE searching for a strong-armed thief who carried a 250-pound safe out of a restaurant. Kevin Hynes said a man walked out of his Stockholders Restaurant in Weymouth on Sunday night lugging the vault. Surveillance tape shows the man entering a side door at the rear of the restaurant, heading down the stairs and coming back up carrying a large object wrapped in a trash bag. No arrests have been made. Hynes hasn’t said how much money was in the safe, but he’s offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to the man’s arrest.

THE UNITED NATIONS said Wednesday that violence claimed the lives of 7,818 civilians in Iraq in 2013, the highest annual death toll in years. More than eight months of escalated violence has sparked fears that the country may be returning to the widespread bloodshed of 2004-2007 that saw tens of thousands killed each year. Death tolls dipped following a U.S. troop surge and an alliance of Sunni militias with U.S. forces against alQaida, but soaring sectarian distrust appears to be allowing the extremist network to rebuild. The U.N. figures gave a total of 759 people killed in December alone.

SOMALI POLICE SAY two cars bombs have exploded outside a hotel popular with foreigners in the capital, Mogadishu, wounding at least two people. Police officer Ahmed Ali said the bombs exploded Wednesday night outside the Jazeera Hotel near Mogadishu’s international airport. Police had no more information about the attack. It was not immediately clear who was responsible for it, but the al-Qaidalinked Islamic rebels of al-Shabab frequently stage lethal attacks near the seat of government and at sites popular with foreigners.





Medicaid estates get recovery cap PENINSULA DAILY NEWS


Construction crews work to pave the approach to the new U.S. Highway 101 bridge over McDonald Creek west of Sequim last month as traffic continues to use to old highway.

Highway 101 traffic switch is still planned for Monday Weather-dependent; traffic impact ‘minimal’ between PA, Sequim PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — The state Department of Transportation plans to shift traffic onto the new lanes of U.S. Highway 101 between Port Angeles and Sequim at 7 a.m. Monday. Agency spokesman Doug Adamson said the shift remains dependent on the weather.

“It will be a quick little shift,” Adamson said Tuesday. “The traffic impacts should be minimal.” Traffic will be moved onto the new lanes on a 1.2mile segment of the highway between Barr Road and Peninsula Septic Tanks. The shift is needed to allow crews to build the second of two new bridges

over McDonald Creek, Adamson said. Several more traffic shifts will occur this spring and summer as the state widens the highway to four lanes on the 3.5-mile segment between Kitchen-Dick and Shore roads. The state awarded a $27.1 million construction contract to Scarsella Bros. of Kent last summer. DOT officials have said the widening project will be completed by the end of this year. Once completed, motor-

ists will have two lanes in both directions for the entire 13-mile leg between east Port Angeles and west Sequim. East- and westbound traffic will be separated by a 32-foot median to reduce the chances of head-on wrecks. The posted speed will remain 45 mph during construction. The speed limit will return to its original 55 mph after the project is finished.

The state has instituted an emergency rule that limits recovery from Medicaid patients’ estates, easing concerns of those 55 or older who have signed up or are considering applying for the expanded Medicaid option for health care. The change came into effect Wednesday, when the state program, called Apple Health, began. The emergency amendment to the Washington Administrative Code means a Medicaid client’s estate will no longer be liable for the all costs of Medicaid services other than long-term care and related prescription drug and hospital costs. State regulations originally permitted the state to bill the estate of Medicaid recipients who were 55 or older for all medical costs. The state Health Care Authority filed the emergency amendment after officials heard from those reluctant to sign up for free Medicaid after the federal Affordable Care Act increased the number of low-income residents eligible for it.

an artist. The marriage raised their combined income enough to enable them to receive tax credits for private insurance and avoid Medicaid coverage. Had the state provision been changed earlier, the two, who had been together for four years, would not have married so quickly, Prins said. “I’m glad we got married, but I wouldn’t have done it with this timing,” Prins said. “We would have done it differently if that rule had been in place.” The provision had been in place since 2004, when the state Legislature authorized it, but had been used very little, the agency said. Health Care Authority Director Dorothy Teeter said nearly all recoveries were tied to long-term-care clients. Federal law requires state recovery for long-term-care services. The emergency amendment is only temporary, beginning a process of public notice and hearings — but it will be in place until the permanent rule comes into effect, the agency said.

Weather prediction talk’s topic PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

FORKS — Weather prediction will be the topic of a talk hosted by the Olympic Natural Resources Center later this month. “An Introduction to Modern Weather Prediction: Is It Going to Rain or Maybe Snow?” will be presented at the center at 1455 S. Forks Ave. at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 17. Participants are asked to bring snacks to share. Tom Rosmond, a consultant for the Naval Research Laboratory, Marine Meteorology Division, will discuss how modern weather prediction tries to answer that question and show some of the science and technology used to support weather predictions. Rosmond, a Forks High School graduate, also will discuss the accuracy of today’s weather predictions and suggest ways it could be enhanced and improved. Rosmond previously worked at the Naval Research Laboratory and at University of California, Fresno. He graduated from the University of Washington with a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in oceanography and a doctorate in atmospheric sciences. During high school breaks, Rosmond worked in the family-owned business, Rosmond Brothers Lumber Co., a lumber mill that for 38 years operated on the site of the 101 Business Park. Evening Talks at ONRC is supported by the Rosmond Forestry Education Fund, an endowment that honors the contributions of Fred Rosmond and his family to forestry and the Forks community.

While many jumpers made a big deal about the act, he slipped into the water quietly, swimming about 50 feet from the edge of the dock to the shore. “I always love water and I love swimming,” he said after emerging from water that he characterized as “freezing.” Nordland General Store owner and plunge founder Tom Rose, who has jumped every year, was sidelined for health reasons and ended his record. He watched the action from the boathouse, something his wife Sue Rose said “is really killing him.” Later, Rose said the calm water conditions and the lack of wind made this year one of the more comfortable jumps in the history of the Nordland event.

CONTINUED FROM A1 “I never thought she would be the first. We were expecting there would be one around midnight,” she said. Hanshaw said she managed the entire labor without drugs and can’t wait to get her new daughter home. The Hanshaws have two older sons, Sicoya, 18, and Toby, 12. As the first girl, a beautiful girl’s nursery has been prepared for Ember. “She’s already spoiled,” Hanshaw said. Grandparents are Dan and Teresa Bellis, both of Sequim, and Teri Hanshaw of San Diego.

Port Angeles The 2014 Port Angeles Polar Bear Plunge was picture-perfect for 150 courageous “polar bears” on New Year’s morning, the participants said. “It’s the best conditions I’ve ever seen. There’s no seaweed or kelp, no sewage and the water is crystal clear. And there is lots of beach to spread out on,” said Dan Welden, 68, of Port Angeles. The air temperature was 42 degrees with no wind, and the water off Hollywood Beach was near glassy at 46 degrees when the mass of people streamed off the beach and into the water. Some went in knee-deep, while others dove in and swam around toward a small fleet of kayakers who act as unofficial lifeguards for the watery tradition.

“We’re setting all kinds of records on the lowest snowpack,” Pattee said. “It’s almost impossible to catch back up.” Meteorologist Josh Smith with the National Weather Service in Seattle said a persistent ridge of high pressure over the eastern Pacific has kept the Northwest drier than usual. “There’s just been a lot fewer low-pressure systems than we’d normally see this time of year,” he said. The Weather Service was calling for the possibility of mountain snow above 2,500 feet Friday. The ski season at Hurricane Ridge has been put on hold for lack of an adequate snow base. Olympic National Park reported 13 inches of snow at Hurricane Ridge on Tuesday. Hurricane Ridge Road has been closed on weekdays at the Olympic National Park entrance station at Heart o’ the Hills campground 5 miles south of Port Angeles.

Going back for a second plunge at Lake Pleasant near Beaver on Wednesday morning are Forks students Luke Dahlgren, Taegan Counsel, Sage Baar and April Davis, from left. It was Welden’s 22nd New Year’s dip into Port Angeles Harbor and 23rd such plunge, he said. One year Welden was in Australia for New Year’s Day, and lacking his usual event took to the waters of the South Pacific. “It was a little warmer,” he said of the summer clime Down Under. The chilly waters off the Strait of Juan de Fuca held no attraction for Rosalie Sec-

ord of Port Angeles, who said she was just there to watch the show with her band, Luck of the Draw. “These people are crazy. We come out every year to see how they do this,” Secord said. Ashlee Seelye, 12, of Port Angeles said it was her first Polar Bear Plunge. The water didn’t seem that cold, Seelye said, but admitted that she wasn’t a great judge of temperatures. “Everyone tells me I have a broken thermometer,” she said.

Lake Pleasant Carin Hirsch led a group of 16 participants into the chilly waters at Lake Pleasant Community Beach near Beaver. The water was cold but the weather was clear and not windy, a nice change from past plunge days,

Hirsch said. The air temperature at the time of the dip was 42 degrees. The water temperatures for the lake was not available. Hirsch’s daughter, Sonja Hirsch, who founded the West End event nine years ago, was pregnant Wednesday and unable to participate. She was waiting impatiently in Seattle for labor to begin. “She went shopping,” Carin said.

The U.S. Coast Guard icebreaker Healy leaves Seattle for a scientific mission in the Arctic that would include breaking ice well north of Barrow, Alaska, in 2007.

Nations jockeying for Arctic position, with U.S. not in lead BY DEB RIECHMANN THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — The U.S. is racing to keep pace with stepped-up activity in the once sleepy Arctic frontier, but it is far from being in the lead. Nations across the world are hurrying to stake claims to the Arctic’s resources, which might be home to 13 percent of the world’s undiscovered oil and 30 percent of its untapped natural gas. There are emerging fisheries and hidden minerals. Cruise liners loaded with tourists are sailing the Arctic’s frigid waters in increasing numbers. Cargo traffic along the Northern Sea Route, one of two shortcuts across the top of the Earth in summer, is on the rise. The U.S., which takes over the two-year rotating chairmanship of the eightnation Arctic Council in 2015, has not ignored the Arctic, but critics say the U.S. is lagging behind the other seven: Russia, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Canada and Denmark, through the semiautonomous territory of Greenland.

‘We are behind’ ”On par with the other Arctic nations, we are behind — behind in our thinking, behind in our vision,” Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, said. “We lack basic infrastructure, basic funding commitments to be prepared for the level of activity expected in the Arctic.” At a meeting before Thanksgiving with Secretary of State John Kerry, Murkowski suggested he name a U.S. ambassador or envoy to the Arctic — someone who could coordinate work on the Arctic being done by more than 20 federal agencies and take the lead on increasing U.S. activities in the region. Murkowski is trying to get Americans to stop thinking that the Arctic is just Alaska’s problem. She added that even nonArctic nations are deeply

engaged: “India and China are investing in icebreakers.” The U.S. has three aging icebreakers. The melting Arctic also is creating a new front of U.S. security concerns. Earlier this month, Russian President Vladimir Putin said expanding Russia’s military presence in the Arctic was a top priority for his nation’s armed forces. Russia this year began rehabilitating a Soviet-era base at the New Siberian Islands and has pledged to restore a number of Arctic military airbases that fell into neglect after the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union. Putin said he doesn’t envision a conflict between Russia and the United States, both of which have called for keeping the Arctic a peaceful zone. But he added, “Experts know quite well that it takes U.S. missiles 15 to 16 minutes to reach Moscow from the Barents Sea,” which is a part of the Arctic Ocean near Russia’s shore. While the threat of militarization remains, the battle right now is on the economic level as countries vie for oil, gas and other minerals, including rare earth metals used to make high-tech products like cellphones. There also are disputes bubbling up with environmental groups that oppose energy exploration in the region; Russia arrested 30 crew members of a Greenpeace ship in September after a protest in the Arctic. China signed a free trade agreement with tiny Iceland this year, a signal that the Asian powerhouse is keenly interested in the Arctic’s resources. And Russia is hoping that the Northern Sea Route, where traffic jumped to 71 vessels this year from four in 2010, someday could be a transpolar route that could rival the Suez Canal. In the U.S., the Obama administration is consulting with governmental, business, industry and environmental officials, as well as the state of Alaska, to develop a plan

to implement the U.S. strategy for the Arctic that President Barack Obama unveiled seven months ago. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel rolled out the Pentagon’s Arctic blueprint last month, joining the Coast Guard and other government agencies that have outlined their plans for the region.

the Arctic.” The U.S. needs helicopters, runways, port facilities and roads in the Arctic, she said — not to mention better accommodations in small coastal towns that have a shortage of beds and would be ill-equipped to handle an influx of tourists from a disabled cruise ship. With few assets, the U.S. might be forced to borrow from the private sector. The Obama administration defends its work on the Arctic, saying it is preparing for the rapid changes coming in the far north. ”Each Arctic government, including the United States government, has developed an Arctic strategy, and the administration expects to release an implementation plan for our Arctic strategy in the coming months,” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.

Strategy papers

Looking for specifics

There are no cost or budget estimates yet, but the Navy is laying out what the U.S. needs to increase communications, harden ships and negotiate international agreements so nations will be able to track traffic in the Arctic and conduct searchand-rescue operations. Critics, however, say the U.S. needs to back the strategy papers with more precise plans — plus funding. With the country still paying for two wars, the idea of spending money in an area considered a low security threat makes the Arctic an even tougher sell. ”The problem with all of these strategies is that they are absolutely silent on budget issues,” said Heather Conley, an expert on the Arctic at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. “How do we meet these new challenges? Well, we’re going to have to put more resources to them. It’s dark. It’s cold. There’s terrible weather. “We need to enhance our own satellite communications and awareness in the area as ships and commercial activity increases in

Malte Humpert with the Washington-based Arctic Institute said that when the implementation plan is completed, he’s going to be looking for specifics: timelines, budget numbers, plans for new infrastructure. ”There’s a lot of good, shiny policy and good ideas about how to move forward, and now it’s about finding money,” he said. “And that’s where the U.S. is really far behind.” The funding battle often focuses on icebreakers. The Coast Guard has three: the medium-duty Healy, which is used mostly for scientific expeditions, and two heavy icebreakers, the Polar Sea and Polar Star. Both heavy icebreakers were built in the 1970s and are past their 30-year service lives. The Polar Star, however, was recently given a $57 million overhaul, was tested in the Arctic this summer and currently is deployed in Antarctica. About $8 million has been allocated to study the possibility of building a new icebreaker, which would take nearly a decade and cost more than $1 billion.

“We need to enhance our own satellite communications and awareness in the area as ships and commercial activity increases in the Arctic.” HEATHER CONLEY expert on Arctic, Center for Strategic and International Studies.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Thursday, January 2, 2014 PAGE


The war on poverty 50 years ago IN HIS STATE of the Union address on Jan. 8, 1964, President Lyndon Johnson declared a “war on poverty.” Today, with roughly the Cal same number of people below Thomas the poverty level as in 1964 and with many addicted to government “benefits,” robbing them of a work ethic, it is clear that the poor have mostly lost the war. In 1964, the poverty rate was about 19 percent. Census data from 2010 indicate that 15.1 percent are in poverty within a much larger population. The lack of government programs did not cause poverty, and spending vast sums of money has not eliminated it. A policy analysis by the Cato Institute found that federal and state anti-poverty programs have cost $15 trillion over the past five decades but have had little effect on the number of people living in poverty. That amounts to $20,610 per poor person in America, or $61,830 per poor family of three. If the government had sent them a check they might have been better off. As Robert Rector and Jennifer Marshall have written for The Heritage Foundation: “President Johnson’s goal was not to create a massive system of ever-increasing welfare benefits for an ever-larger number of beneficiaries. “Instead, he sought to increase self-sufficiency, enabling recipi-

ents to lift themselves up beyond the need for public assistance.” Johnson sounded conservative when he said: “[We] want to offer the forgotten fifth of our people opportunity and not doles.” Unfortunately, the war on poverty neglected a key component: human nature. Substantial numbers of people came to rely on government benefits and thus lost any sense of personal responsibility. Teenage girls knew they could get a check from the government if they had babies and so they had them, often more than one. The law discouraged fathers from living with, much less marrying, the mothers of their children and so legions of “single mothers” became the norm, and the lack of male leadership in the home contributed to additional cycles of poverty, addicting new generations to government. When President Bill Clinton signed the welfare reform bill in 1996, liberals screamed that people would starve in the streets. They didn’t. Many got jobs when they knew the checks would cease. Over time, government enacted rules to prevent churches and faith-based groups from sharing their faith if they wanted to receive federal grants, thus removing the reason for their success. These groups, which once were at the center of fighting poverty by offering a transformed life and consequently a change in attitude, retreated to the sidelines. In public schools, values that once were taught were removed because of lawsuits and the fear of lawsuits, creating a “naked public square” devoid of concepts such as right and wrong, with

There are two ways to measure poverty. One is the way the Census Bureau does, by counting income earned by individuals and families without including government benefits. The other is not measurable in a statistical sense. It is a poverty of spirit. People need to be inspired and told they don’t have to settle for whatever circumstances they are in. This used to be the role of faith-based institutions, and it can be again if they refuse gov-

ernment grants and again reach out to the poor. One condition for maintaining tax-exempt status should be for these faith-based institutions to help people get off government assistance and find jobs, becoming self-sufficient. If people need transitional money for day care or transportation, it can be provided, either temporarily by government or by the thousands of churches, synagogues and other faith-based groups. There is no undiscovered truth about the cure for most poverty: Stay in school; get married before having children and

stay married; work hard, save and invest. The “war on poverty” can be won, but it must be fought with different weapons, not the ones that have failed for the past halfcentury.

Congress feeds confetti to jobless IS THIS REALLY how we want to start the new year, by denying unemployment benefits to more than a million Americans who have lost their jobs? The bipartisan budget Amy agreement passed by Con- Goodman gress and signed by President Barack Obama protects military spending but promises to throw the most desperate in our economy into increased financial hardship, thrusting hundreds of thousands of families beneath the poverty line. The long-term unemployment rate is at the highest it has been since World War II, while the percentage of those receiving the benefits is at its historic low. Meanwhile, Wall Street bankers are popping the corks, celebrating a banner year for the stock market. As brokers await their bonuses, many more of the unemployed will head for the breadlines. “This is the wrong thing to happen at the wrong time for our economy,” Imara Jones told me. Jones is the economic justice contributor for and served in the Clinton White House, where he worked on international trade policy. “Jobless benefits are actually stimulative to the economy,” he said. “Every $1 we provide to someone of unemployment benefits yields $1.60 in economic activity. “And that’s why the loss of

these benefits is going to rob our economy of $41 billion.” People living on the edge financially spend what they have to get by. Those in the top echelons of our economy, the top 1 percent, can take their income and hold on to it, or stash it away into an offshore account. The unemployment-insurance program traditionally granted 26 weeks of replacement pay for workers who lost their jobs through no fault of their own. The extended benefits, signed into law by President George W. Bush, lengthened the time period to up to 99 weeks. Benefits average just $300 a week. According to The Washington Post, the average job search lasts 35 weeks, so the current 26-week benefit will create added stress on families already struggling. Congress could renew the extended benefits. Sen. Jack Reed, a Democrat of Rhode Island, and Sen. Dean Heller, a Republican of Nevada, have put forth a bill that would preserve the extended benefits for three months. Heller said in a news release: “Providing a safety net for those in need is one of the most important functions of the federal government. As Nevada’s unemployment rate continues to top the charts nationwide, many families and individuals back home do not know how they are going to meet their basic needs.” Although this proposal is bipartisan, it is expected to be blocked by Republicans when it comes to a procedural vote around this Monday unless five more GOP senators can be persuaded to support it.

Even if it passes the Senate, the bill would still face a House of Representatives controlled by Republicans who are generally hostile to any extension. On the other end of the economy, a year-end stock-market rally was expected to boost the massive bonuses Wall Street is preparing to hand out. The largest Wall Street firms have reportedly set aside more

than $91 billion for year-end bonuses. In response, an activist group called The Other 98% has launched a petition calling on employees of JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, Wells Fargo, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and Bank of America to donate their bonuses to the 10 million Americans displaced by the housing crisis.

Alexis Goldstein worked for years on Wall Street and now is the communications director for The Other 98%. She told us on the “Democracy Now!” news hour: “Wall Street could take $60 billion out of their bonuses and help . . . fund something called the National Housing Trust Fund for two years. “It’s a program that, if funded at $30 billion for 10 years, could end homelessness in America.” She points out the bonuses are essentially publicly financed because Wall Street banks obtain funds from the Federal Reserve at very low rates. These banks also can afford huge bonuses, she says, because “they continue to commit crimes that are very profitable.” Goldstein noted two criminal settlements made by JPMorgan Chase, one for $13 billion for mortgage fraud, and another for $300 million for manipulating electricity rates in California. Inequality entered mainstream public discourse through the activism of Occupy Wall Street. The cold, economic reality of it is hitting more homes this week, as unemployment benefits expire. Congress can, and should, renew them. Whether it does depends on people who care speaking out.

SEATTLE — Boeing has sent a letter to the homes of production workers getting ready to vote Friday on the company’s contract extension proposal. The letter from human resources Vice President Alan May said approval “will secure jobs in the Puget Sound region for the next decade and beyond.� May said ratification will mean Boeing will agree to both fabricate and assemble the new 777X jet in the Puget Sound area. Since Machinists rejected an initial contract offer in November, 22 states have submitted bids to secure work on the new jet.

More anglers chasing steelies IT APPEARS MORE anglers are fishing for hatchery steelhead on the West End rivers, but it’s tough to say whether or not they are having more success. The state Department of Lee Fish and Wildlife fish checkers Horton interviewed 191 anglers who fished the Bogachiel River over the weekend. They caught 50 hatchery steelhead and released two. That is an average of a little more than one fish for every four anglers. On the Lower Hoh River, 126 anglers caught 28 steelhead, which is a little less than one per every four anglers. These numbers really only reveal an increase in pressure on those rivers. The Calawah River, meanwhile, had a great fishing weekend, according to the numbers. Only 20 anglers were interviewed, but 18 steelhead were kept or released. “In a normal year, in the week between Christmas and New Year, success rate should be near [one fish per angler] once or twice,” Ward Norden, a fishing tackle wholesaler and former fishery biologist, said. “Seems to be running about one per four anglers, except at the Calawah [last weekend, where] it was one per angler. “By Seattle area standards, where one fish per 15 anglers is normal, this is great fishing. But by Quillayute standards, these are mediocre counts, especially for the Bogey, but it is better.” Norden said an inch of rain could make a huge difference, or at least provide an indication of what kind of run the rivers will have this year.

Dig has four days left The razor clam dig that started last year will run though the weekend at various coastal beaches. Here are the dates, beaches and low tides of the remaining days of the dig: ■ Today: 7:15 p.m.; -1.7 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach and Mocrocks. ■ Friday: 8 p.m.; -1.4 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach and Mocrocks. ■ Saturday: 8:45 p.m.; -0.9 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Mocrocks and Copalis. ■ Sunday: 9:31 p.m.; -0.2 feet; Twin Harbors. No digging will be allowed on any beach before noon. Diggers are limited to 15 razor clams per day, and they must take the first 15 they harvest.

Rules not slowing Hawks Defense thriving despite a safety-conscious NFL BY DON RUIZ MCCLATCHY NEWS SERVICE

RENTON — The Seattle Seahawks have an aggressive, hard-hitting defense in a league that seems increasingly concerned about aggressive, hardhitting defense. The NFL has restricted

blows to the head, and several Seahawks see it as inevitable that lower legs soon will be off limits also. The increased emphasis on physical protection has left defenders feeling under siege, while offensive players feel no safer. But through it all, Seahawks

defenders found a way to flourish, allowing the fewest points and yards per game in the NFL while grabbing the most interceptions. “We know our backs are against the wall, and the rules are never going to be in our favor as defenders,” safety Earl Thomas said. “So you just try to not think about anything like that and just try to play fast. And hopefully you’re in the right spot at all times.” Try as they might to get it done within the rules, the


Twelve contenders, all with issues that could make them pretenders. To win the first outdoor Super Bowl in a cold-weather city, each team in the NFL playoffs has a flaw it must conquer. A depleted defense in Den-


ver. A sputtering offense in Seattle. And plenty more elsewhere. The Seahawks and Broncos both went 13-3 and earned the top seeds in their conferences. Along with the Panthers and Patriots, they get an extra week off to fix their imperfections. Those four will do well to remember that six of the last eight Super Bowl champions played on wild-card weekend. “Everybody is 0-0 now,” Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey said.

New England was the last team to parlay the best regularseason record into a title back in 2003, and the last No. 1 seed that got to say, “We’re No. 1!” was the 2009 New Orleans Saints. Here’s a look at the main weakness of each of the 12 teams hoping to hoist the Lombardi Trophy in East Rutherford, N.J., on Feb. 2:

NFC ■ Seattle: The Seahawks’ offense staggered down the






stretch. Seattle was held under 300 yards in three of its final four games. The Seahawks’ biggest problem came on third downs, where they were a combined 5 of 26 in Weeks 15 and 16. “I think that we have an offense that we can count on, we know where they’re coming from, they do a fantastic job taking care of the football and they’re tough, and we run the ball,” shrugged coach Pete Carroll.

If you had a crab or hunting license in 2013, you have less than a month to let the government know how you did. The crab harvest ended Tuesday evening, and crabbers are required to report their winter catch by Saturday, Feb. 1. Catches can be reported online, dropped off at a nearby state Department of Fish and Wildlife regional office, or mailed to the state Department of Fish and Wildlife address on the card. Also, hunters who purchased tags for black bear, deer, elk or turkey are reminded that reports are due by Friday, Jan. 31, for each 2013 license, permit or tag that was purchased. That’s your homework. Get to it.

The state Department of Fish and Wildlife will accept applications for its Master Hunter Permit Program from now through Feb. 15.

Seahawks also were the most penalized team over the regular season. Part of that might come from the size and physicality of the team’s secondary. But Thomas believes part of it also comes from reputation. “Every coach that we play, in pregame is going to warn the refs about us, just because if they let us play our ball nobody’s going to get open, just because we’re so physical out there,” he said.

Nebraska holds off Georgia THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Tommy Armstrong Jr. connected with Quincy Enunwa for two touchdowns, including a 99-yarder in the third quarter, and Nebraska held on to beat No. 23 Georgia 24-19 in the rainsoaked Gator Bowl on Wednesday. Playing in their 50th bowl, the Cornhuskers (9-4) ended a four-game losing streak against teams from the Southeastern Conference. The streak included a 45-31 loss to Georgia in the Capital One Bowl last season. The rematch was much different. Nebraska did a solid job against running back Todd Gurley, who ran for 125 yards and a touchdown last year. TURN

decisions I could have ever made.” With Bridgewater starting, the Cardinals won 27 games and tied a school record with this year’s 12-1 finish. Despite some lackluster efforts following a loss to Central Florida, Louisville entered the bowl game with the nation’s 18thranked passing game at nearly 303 yards per game and 34th in total offense at 453.1. Bridgewater’s career highlight was last year’s 33-23 Sugar Bowl upset of Florida in which the 6-foot-3, 196-pound Miami native earned MVP honors after passing for 266 yards and two TDs. His decision wasn’t surprising considering he began the season as a Heisman Trophy candidate.

But they lost Von Miller, Rahim Moore, Kevin Vickerson and Derek Wolfe on defense. A great free agent class of Terrance Knighton, Shaun Phillips and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (plus Louis Vasquez and Wes Welker on offense) might make up for this injury epidemic. “You may take a second to pause and reflect,” tight end Jacob Tamme said, “but everyone in here knows that what you do in the regular season is not what counts.” ■ New England: The Patriots’ tendency to let games go down to the wire could cost them. They’ve lost four times

by a touchdown or less, including 13-6 to Cincinnati, their possible opponent in the divisional round. And they’ve lost three games in the final two minutes. “We just all have to do a better job because our margin of error is very slim,” Tom Brady said after a 24-20 loss at Miami on Dec. 15. “We’re not winning by 30 points. Every game comes down to the end.” ■ Indianapolis: By mixing and matching six starting lineups over the last six games, the Colts have finally found a way to protect Andrew Luck. They could have their starting linemen back for the playoffs, and the trick is finding a combo that doesn’t

“Gronkowski’s a big guy. A safety sees a big guy running at him: Cut low.” Regardless of intent on that particular play, Seahawks tight end Zach Miller has noticed more low tackles this season. And it’s a trade-off he does not want. “I think it’s good that they’re trying to protect the head, but if they’re doing it at the cost of your knees, I don’t like that one bit,” he said. “The knees should be off limits. If they need to take away some of the limitations on the head hits, I’d rather be hit in the head and have a concussion than blow out my knee and be out for an entire year.” Miller goes on to suggest a sort of legal hit “strike zone,” below the head but above the knees. He also volunteered an acknowledgement that could make life difficult for

defensive players. But for their part, Seahawks defenders already have come to terms with a belief that additional restrictions are ahead. “It’s going to become like a flag football type or rugby,” Thomas said. “They’re trying to take everything out of it as far as defenders. But I hope the fans don’t get tired of it and stop watching. Maybe that would catch the commissioner’s eyes. “But that’s not my place. I just want to keep tackling; that’s it.” Chancellor doesn’t think it will come to that. “It will still be the same game,” he said. “You just gotta do it the right way. You’ve got to adapt to change. It’s a new year. Change happens every year. “You’ve just got to adapt, that’s all.”

The Badgers (9-4) lost their fourth straight bowl game, failing to capitalize on 100-yard rushing games from both Melvin Gordon and James White.

LSU 21, Iowa 14 TAMPA, Fla. — Jeremy Hill ran for 216 yards and two touchdowns, helping LSU and inexperienced quarterback Anthony Jennings hold off Iowa in the

Outback Bowl. Craig Loston’s fourthquarter interception stopped a potential tying drive, giving Hill a chance to put the game out of reach by carrying four times for 87 yards on a 92-yard march that gave LSU (10-3) a 21-7 lead. Iowa (8-5) pulled within a touchdown after Jordan Cotton returned the ensuing kickoff to the Tigers 4. Jennings rushed for one touchdown, but the fresh-

man threw for only 82 yards and was intercepted once and sacked four times while standing in for the injured Zach Mettenberger in his first college start. C.J. Beathard replaced Jake Rudock at quarterback for Iowa on the first play of the fourth quarter. His fourth-down interception stopped one promising drive, but he also tossed a 4-yard TD pass to Kevonte Martin-Manley that cut it 21-14 with 1:42 remaining.

ORLANDO, Fla. — Connor Shaw was responsible for five touchdowns, including three passing, and South Carolina outlasted Wisconsin in the Capital One Bowl. The senior was selected the game MVP after picking apart the Badgers’ defense, completing 22 of 25 passes for 312 yards. Shaw also had rushing and receiving scores. The game also turned out to be the final college contest for South Carolina star defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, who said afterward that he would forgo his senior season to enter the NFL draft. South Carolina (11-2) won its third straight bowl game to cap its third

mess up the mojo they’ve discovered on offense after losing Reggie Wayne at midseason. “It’s probably like solving the Rubik’s Cube,” coach Chuck Pagano cracked when asked about choosing this week’s starters to fend off Kansas City’s front seven. ■ Cincinnati: Despite a club-record 33 TD passes, Andy Dalton has been streaky and has yet to come up big in the postseason. He’s had horrible playoff performances at Houston in his first two trips to the playoffs — six sacks, four interceptions, no TDs — and last year he overthrew wide-open A.J. Green in the end zone in the waning minutes of a 19-13 loss to the Texans.

“A great player is going to get those things and hit some of those,” Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said earlier this season about that overthrow. “That’s how you get to that status. If not, you’re never going to be looked at as that.” ■ Kansas City: There are only 25 players on the Chiefs’ 53-man roster who have played in a postseason game, and 12 of those have never won. Kansas City hasn’t won a playoff game since 1993, so the Chiefs, who have lost their last seven postseason games, will be leaning on those few who have had some success. “Some of us have done this before,” said Alex Smith, who led the 49ers to the NFC title game two years ago. “It’s wiping the slate clean. It’s a brand new season. This game is such a week-to-week thing anyway.” ■ San Diego: Philip Rivers had a bounce-back season under coach Mike McCoy, but the Chargers’ defense nearly kept them out of the playoffs, allowing 332 yards to Kansas City’s backups in a game San Diego won 27-24 in overtime Sunday. Officials missed an infraction that should have given the Chiefs a 36-yard field goal try at the end of regulation. “You’ve got to play our best every week or you’re going to get beat,” McCoy said. “It doesn’t matter who you’re playing.”

Tom Edwards walks back to his truck with his chain saw in the woods near Spanaway. Despite working as a logger all his life, he is pessimistic about his chances of ever retiring, an opinion common among American blue-collar workers.

Retirement chances are narrow for many Despite long life of labor, odds down BY EMILY WAGSTER PETTUS THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Tom Edwards grew up in a family that’s been cutting trees and hauling timber in the Pacific Northwest for more than a century. The Spanaway resident said he has worked as a logger since he was a kid. It’s just what an able-bodied youngster was expected to do. Now, at 53, with business in a slump and little money in savings, he’s pessimistic about his chances of retiring. “It’s never going to happen. By the time I reach retirement age, there won’t be Social Security. There’s not going to be any money,” Edwards said. “I’ll do like my father did: I’ll work till I die.” Across the U.S., such concerns are common among blue-collar baby boomers — the 78 million Americans born between 1946 and 1964. Many have jobs that provide paltry pensions or none at all, as many companies have been moving toward less generous retirement packages in the past decade. Many boomers expect to work the rest of their lives because they have little cash put away for their old age and they worry Social Security won’t cover their bills. Some hope to move to jobs that are less physically demanding.

Growing portion The share of U.S. workers who are 55 and older is expected to continue growing, according to the The Oxford Handbook of Retirement 2013. The group comprised 12.4 percent of the workforce in 1998. The share jumped to 18.1 percent in 2008 and is expected to be almost 25 percent by 2018. The book is edited by Mo Wang, codirector of the Human Resource Research Center at the University of Florida’s Warrington College of Business Administration. In an interview, Wang said it’s a misconception that lower-wage workers are slackers in preparing for retirement. “People don’t have adequate earnings,” Wang told The Associated Press. “It’s not because they don’t want to save. It’s because they just can’t.” Many people don’t save enough for their own retirement because they lack financial literacy skills, Wang said. Also, he said it can be incorrect to assume that people with lower incomes have more financial concerns than people with higher incomes. Psychologically, the important thing is the ratio of life earnings to wealth — how much money a person earns in a life span compared with how much of it the person gets to keep. “Whether they have the 401(k) is not the decisive factor in influencing how well they live,” Wang said.

Computers are learning with time Brain inspires new tech BY JOHN MARKOFF THE NEW YORK TIMES

PALO ALTO, Calif. — Computers have entered the age when they are able to learn from their own mistakes, a development that is about to turn the digital world on its head. The first commercial version of the new kind of computer chip is scheduled to be released this year. Not only can it automate tasks that now require painstaking programming — for example, moving a robot’s arm smoothly and efficiently — but it can also sidestep and even tolerate errors, potentially making the term “computer crash” obsolete.

Based on neurons

Catherine Bacon, 46, of Durant, Miss., speaks about the economic problems she faces as she gets older in the industry challenged Mississippi Delta. “Whether they have their own house is a big factor.” For homeowners, about 50 percent of wealth is typically tied up in the house and other investments, while a pension accounts for about 25 percent and Social Security accounts for about 25 percent, Wang said.

Social Security key For people who don’t own their homes, particularly those who’ve worked low-income jobs, “Social Security is super important,” he said. “Social Security is one way to pull them out of poverty.” People can receive full retirement benefits from Social Security between 65 and 67, depending on when they were born, and Medicare coverage at 65. Farmers, loggers and other agriculture workers often have their wealth tied up in their homes or work property. Business consultant Mike Salisbury of American Falls, Idaho, has spent more than three decades helping farmers plan their financial futures. He said the biggest concern for most is succession — whether any children want the farm once a farmer retires. “Now, statistics pretty well show that about two-thirds of farm families do not have successors interested in coming back into the business,” Salisbury said.

Looking for exit strategy Without someone to take over the family business, farmers look for an exit strategy, he said. “There are some really complex tax ramifications for when a farmer decides to stop farming,” he said. He said farmers approaching retirement want to know how to convert the equity in their land, fixtures, buildings and machinery into cash without having to pay the upper tax rates or having to pay taxes in a lump sum the day assets are sold. “We like to think of our farmers as just barely getting by and dirt poor,” Salisbury said. “For the vast majority of farmers today, the ones that sur-

vived the economic crash of the ’80s, they’re probably in pretty good shape.” People who’ve worked low-wage jobs for decades, such as 46-year-old Catherine Bacon of Durant, Miss., said they have a tough time envisioning an affordable retirement, even if that goal is decades away. Bacon worked 21 years in a catfish processing plant cutting filets and hoisting bags of fish to make sure they weighed 15 pounds, never earning more than $16,000 a year. To supplement her income for nine of those years, she also worked weekends as a convenience store cashier. The seven-days-a-week routine meant she rarely saw her two oldest daughters when they were young.

The new computing approach, already in use by some large technology companies, is based on the biological nervous system, specifically on how neurons react to stimuli and connect with other neurons to interpret information. It allows computers to absorb new information while carrying out a task and adjust what they do based on the changing signals. In coming years, the approach will make possible a new generation of artificial intelligence systems that will perform some functions that humans do with ease: see, speak, listen, navigate, manipulate and control. That can hold enormous consequences for tasks like facial and speech recognition, navigation and planning, which are still in ele-

mentary stages and rely heavily on human programming. Designers said the computing style can clear the way for robots that can safely walk and drive in the physical world, though a thinking or conscious computer, a staple of science fiction, is still far off on the digital horizon.

Biological computing “We’re moving from engineering computing systems to something that has many of the characteristics of biological computing,” said Larry Smarr, an astrophysicist who directs the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology, one of many research centers devoted to developing these new kinds of computer circuits. Conventional computers are limited by what they have been programmed to do.

Recognizing stats Computer vision systems, for example, only “recognize” objects that can be identified by the statistics-oriented algorithms programmed into them. An algorithm is like a recipe, a set of step-by-step instructions to perform a calculation. But last year, Google researchers were able to get a machine-learning algorithm, or neural network, to perform an identification task without supervision. The network scanned a database of 10 million images and trained itself to recognize cats.

Realities of retirement The kind of retirement many Americans envision — travel, hobbies, leisure time without financial stress — is just a wistful fantasy for her. Bacon is a single mother with two grown children and two younger children still living at home. Sitting at the kitchen counter of the double-wide trailer she rents from one of her sisters, she sighed. “I haven’t given up on living,” Bacon said. “It’s just, certain things I want to do, I know I won’t do them. Traditional retirement — I won’t have that.” Some blue-collar workers have employers who chip in toward retirement. In Atlanta, 41-year-old Jason Baumgartner works as a master carpenter, helping build luxury homes. He said his employer contributes to a Roth IRA for him, and he puts in some money each week, as well. He and his wife have a son who’s about to turn 2, and they’ve consulted a financial planner. He said he wants to save enough money to start his own business and work for himself rather than for somebody else. “I think the hours and, you know, the labor-intensive stuff won’t be as bad,” Baumgartner said. “But still, I plan on working until I’m 60, 75. Well, 70.”

Fiat to buy up Chrysler stock THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DETROIT — Italian automaker Fiat SpA announced Wednesday that it reached an agreement to acquire the remaining shares of Chrysler for $3.65 billion in payments to a unioncontrolled trust fund.

Already part-owner Fiat already owns 58.5 percent of Chrysler’s shares, with the remaining 41.5 percent held by a United Auto Workers union trust fund that pays health care bills for retirees. Under the deal, Fiat will make an initial payment of $1.9 billion to the fund, plus an additional $1.75 billion upon closing the deal. Chrysler will also make additional payments total-

ing $700 million to the fund as part of an agreement with the UAW. The deal is expected to close on or before Jan. 20, according to a statement from Chrysler. Sergio Marchionne, CEO of both Fiat and Chrysler, has long sought to acquire the union’s shares in order to combine the two companies.

Global automaker “The unified ownership structure will now allow us to fully execute our vision of creating a global automaker that is truly unique in terms of mix of experience, perspective and know-how, a solid and open organization,” Marchionne said in a statement issued by Turin, Italy-based Fiat.

YOU PROBABLY KNOW on some level that as of yesterday, it’s 2014.

Or we can go get down that old box that’s behind the bowling ball in the top shelf of the closet in the spare bedroom. because that’s where we packed away the “courage,” and unpack it. Try it on. See if it still fits. You might be surprised. Happy New Year.

DEAR ABBY: My sister “Nicole” faked several pregnancies to keep her boyfriends around until they wised up. She is now really pregnant by a married man. Nicole has a long criminal history and has been in and out of jail for various offenses. She’s now facing drug charges that could land her in jail for the next 10 or 15 years. If she’s found guilty, my mother will get custody of the baby so it won’t have to stay in foster care. My parents are in their late 50s and financially capable, but they’re not in the best of health. Mom plans to raise the child until Nicole gets out of prison because my sister “always wanted to be a mom.” My husband and I have been discussing adopting a child and would love to adopt Nicole’s baby. If we did, we’d get a child and could provide the love, safety and security my sister cannot. And the child would get a stable home. Mom feels Nicole “deserves” to be a mom, despite the fact that she’s going to jail and flits from man to man searching for someone to love her. How can I get my mother to see that the needs of this baby have to come first? She should be more concerned with this innocent baby than her drugged-out daughter. Am I wrong to feel hurt and think my mother is choosing her over me? Heartbroken in Alabama

Dear Wit’s End: Most parents strive to make their children independent. Your mother may want you home not because you can’t take care of yourself but because she doesn’t want to live alone. I wouldn’t call that abuse, but I do consider it to be selfish and self-serving. You should not sacrifice your lifestyle to live with someone as manipulative as your mother. When she attacks, laugh and deflect her with humor. Assure her that as incompetent as she thinks you are, you’re “muddling through.” And if she persists, point out that if she doesn’t ease up, she’ll be seeing less of you.

Dear Abby: I’m in my late 20s, single and have no children. I have lived on my own since I was 18. I own my home, my car and have no credit card debt, but my mother refuses to acknowledge me as an adult. When I do simple chores or cook meals, she acts surprised. She constantly pleads with me to move back home because she insists I can’t take care of myself and refuses to discuss it any further than belittling me. My friends say what she’s doing constitutes abuse. I’m not sure I agree, but I do think it is rude and manipulative. How can I deal with her condescending attitude when I’m with her? At My Wit’s End

Advice for car’s winter storage Dear Doctor: I have a 2008 Saturn Sky Redline (Turbo). This car has been garaged and rarely used since its purchase. I don’t think it has ever seen a drop of rain. There are 7,000 miles on it, and the synthetic oil has been changed four times and the tires rotated. What else should I be doing during winter months when the car is garaged? I start it up at least once a month. I’ve only ever filled it with 93 octane and added fuel stabilizer twice. Should I be flushing fluids, lowering tire pressure (or putting the car on stands) to prevent flat spots? Mike Dear Mike: I like the idea of a battery maintainer, raising the tire air pressure and having the tires sit on soft wood or carpeting with a pad. This will help prevent tire flat spotting. You can also move the car 1 foot either way monthly. This is what I do with my own stored cars.

I have seen some rust buildup inside fuel rails, causing lean and in other Road-test cases rich conditions due to Junior rust passing through the Damato needed fuel injector screen.

‘Car hacking’ Dear Doctor: Have you heard about “car hacking”? Is it true that someone can hack into your car’s systems by remote control, be able to take over drivability, resulting in traffic jams, accidents, even death to the car occupants? Is there any way you can be confident your car is not being taken over by bad people? Taya Dear Taya: The small key fob sends a signal to the computer receiver once the key fob is in range. Yes, hackers can in some cases take control of the starting/stopping of the engine if they can break into the system. Car companies are always working on security and most of the time are ahead of the bad guys.
