Olympia starts crafting legal-pot rules BY MIKE BAKER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
OLYMPIA — State officials are looking to build a strictly regulated marijuana system that could forestall federal concerns about how the drug will be handled once it’s available for public purchase. Rick Garza of the Washington Liquor Control Board said Monday that he expects the federal government will try to take action if Washington’s system has loose controls.
He said it’s important for Washington to have a strong regulatory structure, such as how participants in the system are licensed and how the product is handled from growth to the point of sale. “The feds are going to tighten the rope if they feel like it’s not strictly regulated,” Garza said. “The more tightly regulated it is, they are likely to give us a little more room.” One of the biggest issues the state is looking to manage is how much marijuana will be grown under the new system.
Garza said it’s important for officials to properly project consumption rates so the state is growing the right amount of product for in-state users and not having any extra supply that could spill into other states that haven’t legalized marijuana. Garza’s comments came a day before Gov. Jay Inslee was set to meet with the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington, D.C., to discuss the marijuana law. Washington voters approved the marijuana law in November, but Justice
Department officials have not indicated whether they will allow Washington and Colorado — where voters passed a similar measure the same election day — to create legal marijuana markets, since the drug is illegal under federal law. Alison Holcomb, who helped lead Washington’s marijuana initiative, said the measure was written with the expectation that the system would be intensely scrutinized. TURN

A marine life marriage looms Feiro, sanctuary centers aim toward combining facilities BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — Two small North Olympic Peninsula marine science education organizations are working to combine forces to create a major educational and tourist attraction in downtown Port Angeles. For the past four months, the Feiro Marine Life Center, a private nonprofit on City Pier, and the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary, based in Port Angeles and overseen by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, have been working to find ways to combine funding and function in a combined new facility for marine science education.
The Olympic Coast Discovery Center at The Landing mall is operated by the national marine sanctuary. With more than 15,000 annual visitors, and more than 3,000 youth taking part in marine science programs in 2012, the Feiro Marine Life Center’s live animal displays and classroom offerings have grown out of its wedge-shaped building, said director Deborah Moriarty.
A fish’s jump away, at the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary’s Discovery Center in The Landing mall, the situation is similar, with marine life models and interactive science and technology exhibits that need more space, according to Carol Bernthal, Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary superintendent. The process is still in its infancy. Officials are identifying what each organization needs, where their missions overlap, and where they might get funding, Moriarty and Bernthal said, adding that no timeline has been set. The partnership would combine funds to design and build a single new facility to house expanded, modernized versions of the Feiro center and the Discovery Center, with room for future expansion. Such a facility would be welcome as part of the city’s downtown waterfront, but it is not included in the current waterfront plan, said Nathan West, Port Angeles director of community and economic development.

A3 Briefly: Nation N.M. teen tied to shootings had clean past ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The New Mexico teenager accused of fatally shooting his parents and three younger siblings had apparently never been in trouble with the law, according to state officials. A records check by the state Children, Youth and Families Department indicated no trouble with 15-year-old Nehemiah N. Griego Griego or his family, spokesman Bob Tafoya said Monday. Griego, who reportedly told police he had been having homicidal and suicidal thoughts. remained in custody Monday. He was arrested following the shootings Saturday at a home in a rural area southwest of Albuquerque where he lived with his family. Authorities identified the victims as Greg Griego, 51, his wife Sarah Griego, 40, and three of their children: a 9-year-old boy, Zephania Griego, and daughters Jael Griego, 5, and Angelina Griego, 2.
King memoralized ATLANTA — The nation honored civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. on Monday. In Atlanta, an annual commemorative service was held at Ebenezer Baptist Church, where King preached. The Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference was the keynote speaker, marking the first time a Latino leader served in the role. In Memphis, Tenn., some marked the day with a visit to the National Civil Rights Museum, built on the site of the old Lorraine Motel, where King was assassinated April 4, 1968.
Cars pile up in Ohio MIDDLETOWN, Ohio — There have been three separate highway pileups involving dozens of vehicles in Ohio. Authorities said as many as 50 vehicles were involved in a pileup on Interstate 75 in southwest Ohio. Media outlets report a separate accident involving at least 10 vehicles has closed I-275 outside Cincinnati. And the southbound lanes of I-270 near Columbus were closed after a multiple-vehicle pileup. A dispatcher for the State Highway Patrol said the I-75 crash occurred Monday in the southbound lanes under whiteout conditions. The Associated Press
Briefly: World Two Canadians part of attack on gas plant ALGIERS, Algeria — The Islamist militants who attacked a natural gas plant in the Sahara included two Canadians and a team of explosives experts who had memorized the layout of the sprawling complex and were ready to blow the place sky-high, Algeria’s prime minister said Monday. Militants in the highly organized operation also wore Algerian army uniforms and appeared to have help from the inside — a Sellal man from Niger who had once worked as driver at the plant, he said. Algeria detailed a grim toll from the attack, saying 38 hostages and 29 militants died in four days of mayhem. Three of the attackers were captured and five foreign workers remained unaccounted for, Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal told reporters in Algiers, the capital. All but one of the dead hostages — an Algerian driver — were foreigners. They included seven Japanese workers, six Filipinos, three energy workers each from the U.S. and Britain, two from Romania and one worker from France.
Russians evacuated MOSCOW — Russia is send-
ing two planes to Lebanon to evacuate Russians from civil war-struck Syria, authorities said Monday, a move that appears to reflect Moscow’s increasing doubts about Syrian President Bashar Assad’s ability to stay in power. The Emergency Situations Ministry said two of its planes were scheduled to fly to Beirut today to carry more than 100 Russians from Syria. Russia has recently begun to distance itself from the Syrian ruler. Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has said that Russia realizes the need for change in Syria.
Troops praised in Mali DIABALY, Mali — French troops in armored personnel carriers rolled through the streets of Diabaly on Monday, winning praise from residents of this besieged town after Malian forces retook control of it with French help a week after radical Islamists invaded. The Islamists also have deserted the town of Douentza, which they had held since September, according to a local official who said French and Malian forces arrived there Monday as well. The militants’ occupation of Diabaly marked their deepest encroachment into governmentheld territory, and Monday’s retaking of the town is a significant victory for the French-led intervention. Diabaly, located about 320 miles north of Bamako, the capital, fell into rebel hands Jan. 14. Residents said those who fled in the aftermath were forced to escape on foot through rice fields.

Battle plan for Obama Obama’s second inaugural speech gives preview of priorities he intends to pursue with Congress PENINSULA DAILY NEWS NEWS SERVICES
WASHINGTON — A confident President Barack Obama has kicked off his second term with an impassioned call for a more inclusive America that rejects partisan rancor and embraces immigration reform, gay rights and the fight against climate change. Obama’s ceremonial swearingin at the U.S. Capitol was filled with traditional pomp and pageantry, but it was a scaled-back inauguration compared to the historic start of his presidency in 2009 when he swept into office on a mantle of hope and change as America’s first black president. Despite expectations tempered by lingering economic weakness and a politically divided Washington, Obama delivered a preview of the priorities he intends to pursue — essentially a reaffirmation of core liberal Democratic causes — declaring Americans “are made for this moment” and must “seize it together.” His hair visibly gray after four years in office, Obama on Monday called for an end to the partisanship that marked much of his first term in the White House in bitter fights over the economy with Republicans. “We cannot mistake absolutism for principle, or substitute spectacle for politics, or treat name-calling as reasoned debate,” Obama said from atop the Capitol steps overlooking the National Mall.
As the first lady holds two Bibles — one of Abraham Lincoln’s atop a larger version used by Martin Luther King Jr. — President Barack Obama re-takes the oath of office Monday on the Capitol steps. Looking out on a sea of flags, Obama addressed a crowd of hundreds of thousands of people, considerably smaller than the record 1.8 million who assembled on the mall four years ago. Speaking in more specific terms than is customary in an inaugural address, he promised “hard choices” to reduce the federal deficit without shredding the social safety net and called for a revamping of the tax code and a remaking of government. The Democrat arrived at his
second inauguration on solid footing, with his poll numbers up, Republicans on the defensive and his first-term record boasting accomplishments such as a U.S. healthcare overhaul, financial regulatory reforms, the end of the war in Iraq and the killing of Osama bin Laden. But fights are looming over budgets, gun control and immigration. Obama, however, has sounded more emboldened because he never again needs to run for election.
Degree of inaugural separation FOR THE FIRST time in more than three decades, there was neither a Clinton nor a Bush on either the departing or the incoming presidential ticket for Monday’s inaugural. Since 1981, every year until now has seen someone from one of the two famous political families front-and-center on the inaugural platform. In 1981 and 1985, it was George H.W. Bush as vice president to Ronald Reagan, followed four years later by Bush as president. In 1993, with Bush looking on, Bill Clinton took the oath as president, and again four years
later in 1997. Then, a departing Clinton took to the inaugural platform in 2001 as George W. Bush was sworn in. The younger Bush had a second inauguration in 2005, and then witnessed the inauguration four years later, in 2009, of Obama. Footnote: While Bill Clinton was not in the front row during Obama’s second inaugural Monday, he and his wife, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, joined lawmakers and other dignitaries on the inaugural platform.

Everyone’s wearing the same uniform.”

tax to pay for buses CONTINUED FROM A1 The Sequim School District is asking voters to approve two levies: a fouryear $5.8 million educational programs and operations levy and a one-time $1.6 million transportation levy to replace 17 of the districtâ€™s buses. The four-year levy is a replacement levy for one that expires this year, school officials said. This year, property owners within the district will pay $1.59 for every $1,000 of assessed property value, for a total of $5.78 million, school officials said. If approved, the new levy would provide the district $5.8 million each year from 2014 through 2017. The projected tax rate for 2014 and 2015 would be $1.61 per $1,000 of assessed valuation, according to the Clallam County Auditorâ€™s Office in its online voter guide at http://tinyurl. com/aokhw57. In 2016 and 2017, the estimated amount would be $1.60 per $1,000 assessed valuation, the voter guide said. The $1.6 million transportation levy, a one-time tax with an estimated rate of 44 cents per $1,000 assessed property value, would provide the district with enough money to buy 17 buses over the next four years, according to district officials. The district currently has 32 buses, the oldest purchased in 1988, District Business Manager Brian Lewis has said. School districts receive depreciation payments each year for 13 years after purchasing a bus. Currently, eight buses are older than 13 years old, and an additional nine buses will cross that line in the next two years, Lewis has said.
School district officials said that a 1998 construction bond will expire in 2014, so if the levies are approved by voters, the average property ownerâ€™s taxes still would be reduced. In 2013, the total school levy is $2.27 per $1,000 assessed property value, officials said. Next year, that would be $2.18 as the bond enters its final year of payment, they added. Property owners would be taxed for only the operations levy in 2015 if it passes. The Sequim School District website at http:// tinyurl.com/a7zvkgd says that property owners of buildings valued at $100,000 will pay Sequim school property taxes of $226.90 in 2013 and $217.90 in 2014, while property valued at $200,000 would cost its owner $453.80 in 2013 and $435.80 in 2014, and property valued at $300,000 would cost its owner $680.70 in 2013 and $653.70 in 2013.
annually for the levy, school district officials said. Superintendent Diana Reaume said the levy would pay for expenses not covered by state funding, such as maintaining buildings and grounds, books and other educational materials, technology costs and extracurricular activities such as athletics, drama, art, music and field trips. The district plans to resurface the Spartan Stadium track, add safety upgrades to crosswalks and sidewalks on South Elderberry Avenue, add new drain vents on the Forks Middle School roof, re-roof Forks Alternative School and the Independent Learning Center Annex, replace district motor pool vehicles, replace the middle school freezer and 1970s-era carpeting at Forks Elementary School, purchase textbooks and fund annual technology upgrades. If the levy is not passed, the district would lose more than $2 million in levy equalization funds from the state annually, according to district officials. Levy equalization allows districts with lower property values to be funded at a rate similar to high property value districts through added state financing.

PORT TOWNSEND â€“â€“ The ninth annual Strange Brewfest begins Friday, and organizers are hoping it signals the beginning of a new era of beer-based enlightenment. â€œWelcome to the beer age,â€? said Mark Burr, one of the organizers, adding that the end of the Mayan calendar in December â€œwasnâ€™t the end of the world â€” just the start of a new world dedicated to beer.â€? Burr and Nina Law have been throwing Strange Brewfest to celebrate smallbatch brews since the first event at the now-closed Water Street Brewery and Ale House in 2005. The bash celebrates creative development in new brews, with 36 brewers participating this year. â€œYou put that in there and this in there and try to come up with a great new flavor,â€? Burr said. The beer will flow inside the American Legion Hall, 209 Monroe St., Port Townsend, from 7 p.m. to
The Quillayute Valley School District has proposed a four-year maintenance and operation levy that would replace the current levy on Forks property owners, which expires this year. The levy would collect $628,000 each year from 2014 through 2017 â€” which is the same amount that has been collected for the existing two-year levy. The projected rate would be $1.45 per $1,000 of assessed property value in 2104; $1.44 per $1,000 valuation in 2015, $1.42 per $1,000 in 2016 and $1.40 per $1,000 in 2017, accord________ ing to the Clallam County Auditorâ€™s Office.

CONTINUED FROM A1 The city is constructing an esplanade â€” a walkway at the waterline â€” in the downtown waterfront area, and is proposing the restoration of natural contours to the waterfront west of the esplanade to add a beach and park area. A combined marine center is not in city plans, and no location or design has been proposed.
Within next 10 years Officials with the two groups are talking about a general idea of building or converting a facility on the downtown Port Angeles waterfront within the next 10 years, with combined facilities for shared functions such as classrooms for educational programming but separate offices and laboratories to complete their own, unique missions, they said. With a reduction in federal funding, there is increasing pressure to create public-private or publicnonprofit partnerships, Bernthal said.

Both organizations are rich with science resources, knowledge and access to the kind of exhibits that can be offered as both a local educational resource and tourism attraction, but neither has the kind of classroom space they need for the demand, or for their missions. Feiroâ€™s facility has a single 20-student classroom, little storage space and Moriartyâ€™s narrow office doubles as the centerâ€™s laboratory. The Marine Sanctuary, which tries to attract the brightest ocean science majors as interns, has no office space for those interns to complete their work, Bernthal said. The Discovery Center is a small, rectangular converted storefront, crowded with technology exhibits that could be better used and appreciated with more space between them. Most of the youth classes split time between Feiro and the Discovery Center, so those 3,000 students crammed into the single small class space at Feiro must also find space at the
Discovery Center, Bernthal said. The Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary protects more than 3,300 square miles of sensitive coastal Pacific Ocean waters, from Cape Flattery to Copalis Beach. The sanctuaryâ€™s visitorsâ€™ center is in many ways similar to the Feiro center, dedicated to education and information about the marine sanctuary, which includes most of the animals on display at the Feiro center, as well as rare and less-known deep-sea corals. The Sanctuary has a more technical scientific mission, including the use of underwater remote operated vehicles. Many of the classes offered for elementary, middle school and high school-age students are geared toward â€œmath, engineering, and science achievement,â€? known as MESA, education â€” the technical aspects of marine science, Bernthal said.

SEQUIM — School officials will cut the ribbon on a new site for the Olympic Peninsula Academy at 4 p.m. Wednesday. The public is invited to tour the building at 221 W. Fir St., which just opened after a $300,000 renovation. “We’re home now,” Principal Randy Hill said. Open house festivities will run until 6 p.m. Staff and students moved earlier this month from the Sequim Community School building at 220 W. Alder St. into the renovated 1979 structure on Fir Street.

14 teachers and 88 full-time students. Hill said the aging community school building presented staff with a number of heating and cooling issues that led to high utility costs and uncomfortable environments for teachers and students.
Efficient space “So now we’ve been able to go to a smaller space and efficiently heat and take care of our students and employees at a lot more efficient cost,” Hill said. “It was a great place to be, but it was time to get a new space and go forward.” The Sequim School Board authorized the remodel in March of last year with the intent of opening the restored building by the start of this school year.
“We didn’t make it. But that’s OK. We’ve got a good, steady home now,” Hill said. The bulk of the remodeling was done by the district’s maintenance staff led by John McAndie, maintenance superintendent, Hill said. “They can’t get enough credit for the terrific job they’ve done,” he said.

PORT ANGELES — Clallam County will bill the city of Sequim $63,687 for handling its misdemeanor court cases in 2013 if commissioners renew an interlocal agreement with the city today. The annual cost is based on a three-year rolling average of the number of Sequim cases that are processed in Clallam County District Court. The Clallam County commissioners will meet at 10 a.m. in the commissioners’ boardroom (160) at the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles. The three-year renewal will buy time for Sequim to consider the formation of its own municipal court once the new police station and City Hall are built.
Ritchie attributed the decline to past staffing shortages and a growing number of nonviolent offenders being sent to diversion. From 2009 to 2011, Sequim averaged 1,555 District Court cases, or 10.65 percent of the county-wide annual average of 14,607. County Administrator Jim Jones wrote in an executive summary that the cost-share agreement saves “significant monies over what it would cost our respective taxpayers if we had separate courts.” Clallam County billed the city of Port Angeles $144,538 for District Court cases last year. Port Angeles cases accounted for 17.29 percent of the countywide total. Judge Rick Porter presides over the Port Angeles-based Clallam County District Court No. 1. John Doherty, a former District Court 1 judge, recently was appointed to preside over the Forksbased Clallam County District Court No. 2. Doherty will serve the remaining two years on a bench vacated by recently sworn-in Superior Court Judge Erik Rohrer. Felonies that occur anywhere in the county are processed in Clallam County Superior Court.
The Sequim City Council approved the agreement with the county last week. “This is a good interim agreement,” Sequim City Attorney Craig Ritchie said. Last year’s cost to the city was $66,444.

Auditions set for benefit talent show BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — Auditions are planned next week for the fourth annual Port Angeles High School Benefit Talent Show. The show will provide money for medical expenses to the family of Liz Romero, who died of a brain tumor in December. Auditions, which are open to the public, will be conducted from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. next Monday and Tuesday as well as Jan. 30 and Feb. 1 at the Port Angeles High School Performing Arts Center at 304 E. Park Ave. The talent show will be at 7 p.m. Feb. 23 at the high school center and will
include a silent auction beginning at 6:15 p.m. Tickets for the show will be sold at the door the night of the show only. The cost of tickets is $8 per adult, $5 per student, and $20 for a family of four.
All experience levels In past years, the talent show has drawn acts from all ages and experience levels in the North Olympic Peninsula. The 2012 talent show winner was Port Angeles 13-year-old Sharona Klahn, who sang KT Tunstall’s song, “Black Horse and the Cherry Tree.” The annual talent show is a fundraiser spearheaded
by the Port Angeles High School leadership class to help an area family in need. To choose the recipient, each of the 30 students in the class nominated a person in the community experiencing financial difficulties, usually because of a medical condition. Class members then voted for the person they feel could benefit the most from the help. In November, the leadership class selected Liz Romero and her family as the beneficiaries of the 2013 talent show. Romero died Dec. 15, after a three-year battle with an aggressive brain tumor called a glioblastoma multiforme. She was 60.
“She was diagnosed in 2010 so, as you can imagine, there are still many medical bills to be paid,” said Rachael Ward, leadership class advisor at Port Angeles High School. Romero was born in 1952 in Montreal, Quebec, and moved to Port Angeles in 1960 with her family. She is survived by five children, each of whom graduated from PAHS: Sean Romero in 1995; Kari Romero in 1997, Stacy Romero in 2003, Todd Romero in 2004 and Danny Romero in 2009.
Goodwin died March 14, 2010, at the age of 47 after a long battle with a sarcoma, a cancer of the soft tissue. In the show’s second year, Cornerstone Tabernacle pastor Kevin Jones received $3,800 after suffering an aneurism because of a genetic heart condition. The show raised $3,800 to help the family, and Jones and his family have since moved from the area. The 2012 event raised more than $9,000 to help cancer survivor Camille Frazier, a Port Angeles para-educator. Past shows Frazier currently is In the 2010 inaugural undergoing cutting-edge talent show, $12,000 was treatments to fight metasraised for Tammy Goodwin. tasized breast cancer and
said she plans to attend this year’s show. “I’m doing well,” Frazier said Sunday. All proceeds from the show are donated to the designated recipient.

Film series takes ride down Ganges PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
ARWYN RICE/PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Construction workers from Primo Construction continue to make progress on Port Angeles’ $3.9 million waterfront esplanade along Railroad Avenue on Monday despite chilly temperatures and the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. The project, on Railroad Avenue between Laurel and Oak streets, is the first phase of the $17 million Downtown Waterfront Development Project.
PORT ANGELES — Peninsula College’s Magic of Cinema Film Series will take viewers on a journey from the river’s source in the Himalayas to the Bay of Bengal, where it runs into the Indian Ocean, when “Go Ganges!” is screened at 7 p.m. Feb. 1. The film will be shown in Maier Performance Hall on the college’s main campus, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd., Port Angeles. It is co-sponsored by the Port Townsend Film Institute. Admission to the film is $5 general. Peninsula College students will be admitted free-of-charge with current student identification. “Go Ganges!” is the work of J.J. Kelley and Josh Thomas, who also produced the Emmy-nominated travel documentary, “Pad-
dle to Seattle.” Over three months Kelley and Thomas followed the entire length of the Ganges in India, traveling by whatever means was available: by foot or by cycle-rickshaw, rowboat, scooter or anything else that moved.
Rarely seen area The result is a film that takes its viewers to parts of the Ganges that most Westerners have never seen before and explores the paradox behind why a river that is a god to so many in India is also the dirtiest in the world and is being slowly killed through pollution by those who worship it.

Kenmore Air faces obstacles Discussion for seaplanes at Lake Union looks at joint THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SEATTLE — The south Lake Union skyline is growing, but Kenmore Air says it’s more worried about growing boat traffic and noise complaints than flying seaplanes around apartment towers. The flight path can be adjusted, and the planes wouldn’t have any trouble clearing 240-foot buildings that would be allowed under new zoning for three 24-story apartment towers, The Seattle Times reported Monday. Kenmore Air — which serves Port Angeles, the San Juan Islands and Victoria and other destinations in southwest British Columbia — has been using Lake Union as an airport for its floatplanes since 1946. The airline also flies off
Lake Washington at Kenmore and says as many as 40 takeoffs a day make it the largest seaplane operator in the United States. “Kenmore can operate safely under the proposed south Lake Union buildout as long as we have a protected air corridor,” said John Gowey, Kenmore Air’s operations director.
Boating, population The growth in boating and a residential population on the shores of the lake could be bigger obstacles. “Tall buildings next to airports are not something you get excited about,” said Todd Banks, Kenmore’s president. “But you recognize growth is going to happen, and you have to deal with it.” Kenmore operates 25
planes on charter and scheduled routes. The smaller Seattle Seaplane Co. also uses the Lake Union airport, as do private planes and charter flights from Canada.
Summer cancelations Kenmore has already had to cancel flights Tuesday evenings in the summer when Lake Union is crowded with sailboats for a recurring event called the Duck Dodge. The company has a solution: lights mounted on three buoys that pilots could activate before takeoffs or landings. The lights would warn boaters to stay clear of a central strip, or runway, in the lake. The system would cost an estimated $250,000. Kenmore hopes to fund the

EVERETT — Quick action by nearby residents rescued two children who fell through ice Sunday afternoon on Beverly Lake in south Everett. Lissa Arnold and Richard Oleson told The Daily Herald they saw them from the window of their lakeside apartment where they still happened to have a rubber raft and 300 feet of rope on the porch.
Olseon was able to pull the children into the raft. Arnold said the ice punched holes in the raft, and it was deflating, but other neighbors pulled them to shore and warmed them in blankets. The boy and girl, each about 12 years old, were in the water about 10 minutes. Everett Fire Marshal Rick Robinson said they were evaluated by medics and didn’t need to go to a hospital.

The James Bay Neighbourhood Association there objects to seaplane and helicopter noise and emissions. A 2011 report by the neighborhood group called for the city to study aircraft pollution, lobby to end charter tourist flights and install permanent noise monitors. With this in mind, Kenmore has asked South Lake Union developer Vulcan to notify residents of the three 24-story towers that they could not initiate nuisance complaints against seaplanes for legal and normal flights.

Creativity bright in winter’s darkness From Seattle
N EARLY WINTER, when the heavy rains come to the Pacific Northwest and we settle under a blanket of sullen sky, something stirs in the creative soul. At the calendar’s gloaming, Timothy while the landEgan scape is inert and all is dark, sluggish, bleak and cold, writers and cooks and artists and tinkerers of all sorts are at their most productive. At least, that’s my theory. As a lifelong resident of a latitude well to the north of Maine, I’ve come to the conclusion that creativity needs a season of despair. Where would William Butler Yeats be if he nested in Tuscany? Could Charles Dickens ever have written a word from South Beach? And the sun of Hollywood did much to bleach the talents out of that troubled native of Minnesota, F. Scott Fitzgerald. Today, here in Seattle, the sun will set at 4:56 p.m., after making a sketchy appearance of nine hours and eight minutes. Paris, farther north by 1.2 degrees of latitude, will get even less daylight — eight hours and 54 minutes. And Dublin, straddling the 53rd parallel, will see eight hours and seven minutes. What these cities share, in addition to long winter nights, is a large and active creative class. Countless Americans (and

On firearms It’s pretty clear now:

These benighted folks also believe the Second Amendment was incorporated in the Bill of Rights so an armed population could fight the government the framers just created. This government-is-theenemy delusion is bold evidence of diagnosable mental health disorders and a disastrously warped humanity, violence-drunk and eager for blood.

Arming our teachers could be a good investment, meaning more gun sales. Can you imagine gunfights in schools? Don’t we kill enough innocent people with collateral damage? If gun manufacturers would stop paying to spread fear, would we be safer? No, it’s all about money. Note: I hope I’m safe after this letter. Bill Ellis, Happy Valley

using this method to the point that they have destroyed our democratic process. Corporations are paying lobbyists big money to buy off politicians. Kind of like the Prohibition days when the mob bought judges and cops. One of our lobbyists is hiding behind the Second Amendment while receiving money from gun manufactures. Who do you think the National Rifle Association represents: the manufactures or the gun owner? That’s easy. Follow the money. More people have been killed in this country by our own people than by all our wars combined: Civil, I, II, Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq. Makes ya feel really safe, doesn’t it?
There is not a better investment we can make as a community than our schools. By voting yes for the [Sequim School District] educational programs and operations levy, we are just replacing the existing levy that the voters approved in 2010. A yes vote on the Transportation vehicle fund levy helps the Sequim School District purchase needed buses without borrowing money to pay for them, saving the district and us money. Our kids’ future and our community’s future will be brighter if we vote “yes” for Sequim schools. Steve Tharinger, Sequim Tharinger is a state representative for the 24th District.

Students build tools for surgeons PORT ANGELES â€” Port Angeles High School students in Mike Frickâ€™s machine technology class have extended their talents internationally. Students have built special tools â€” bone distractors used by orthopedic surgeons â€” for use during surgery. The distractor holds a broken bone in place while a surgeon sets and/or plates the broken bone. Students have built several for Dr. Sam Baker, a local retired orthopedic surgeon. Baker and other orthopedic surgeons use the distractors in their work in third-world countries, train doctors on how to use the bone distractor, then provide the tool for future use by doctors overseas. Students built each distractor for $100; commercially, one costs $5,000. For more information, phone Frick at 360-5651575 or email him at mfrick@portangelesschools. org.

Pirates pound lowly Olympic PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
BREMERTON — The No. 2-ranked Peninsula College men’s basketball team had its way with the Olympic Rangers behind Salim Gloyd’s double-double of 20 points and 20 rebounds. The Pirates, tied for second place in North with a 4-1 record, 13-5 overall, pounded the Rangers 81-52 at the Ranger Dome in NWAACC North Division action. Hapless OlymALSO . . . pic fell to 0-5 in ■ Women’s conference and team also 1-13 overall. rips apart Olympic guard Olympic Michael Gurske hit Rangers/B3 the first shot of the game to give the Rangers their first and only lead at 3-0. From that point forward, the Pirates flexed their defensive muscles, overwhelming Olympic. Peninsula now has won three straight games and 10 of their last 11. Gloyd led the Pirates with his 20 points and 20 rebounds in just 21 minutes of play. Matt Visser contributed 16 points off the bench while TreShawn KingDunbar contributed 10 points and six assists. The Pirates’ suffocating defense held Olympic to 19 of 73 shooting from the field for just 26 percent. Peninsula’s 3-point defense was even better, limiting Olympic to 6 of 28 from beyond the arc for 21 percent. “ We spent the last two days of practice working on defensive discipline, and I believe it showed [in this game],” Peninsula head coach Lance Von Vogt said. “We played our whole roster considerable minutes, and everyone did a very good job.”
Defensive pressure The Pirates’ pressure forced the Rangers into 22 turnovers and created 15 steals for Peninsula, which led to 25 points off of those steals. “I thought we did a good job capitalizing on the steals we created tonight,” Von Vogt said. “Anytime Olympic made any kind of run, we were able to turn up the defensive pressure and turn them over and push the lead back out.” Peninsula also outrebounded Olympic 63-45. Point guard Daniel Sims missed his third straight game after sustaining an ankle injury with 10 minutes to play in the Edmonds game on Jan. 9. Peninsula squares off against Shoreline at home Wednesday with the women’s game tipping off at 5 p.m. and the men’s contest following at 7 p.m. The Shoreline men’s team (1-4, 2-12) utilizes a fast-paced basketball system made famous by the Paul Westhead, Loyola-Marymount University basketball team from the late 1980s. Shoreline will press 40 minutes and attempt to shoot the ball within 7 seconds of gaining possession throughout the game, resulting in a frenetic pace that is fun to watch. When the Dolphins visited Peninsula last year, the hometown Pirates beat them at their own game, 121106, sending the crowd home with smiles on their faces.

Investor Chris Hansen smiles as he speaks to supporters of a proposal for a new NBA arena during a rally in Seattle on June 14, 2012. Sacrament’s Maloof family has agreed to sell the Kings to a Seattle group led by Hansen, the league confirmed in a statement Monday morning.
Here come the Sonics Maloof family agrees to sell Kings to Hansen BY ANTONIO GONZALEZ THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Bring out that old SuperSonics gear, it may come in handy soon. The only thing stopping the Sacramento Kings from a sale and move to Seattle is approval by NBA owners. The Maloof family has agreed to sell the Kings to a Seattle group led by investor Chris Hansen, the league confirmed in a statement Monday morning. The deal is still pending a vote by the NBA Board of Governors. A person familiar with the decision said that Hansen’s group will buy 65 percent of the franchise, which is valued at a total price of $525 million, and move the team to Seattle and restore the SuperSonics name. The deal will cost the Hansen group a little more than $340 million. The Maloofs will have no stake in the team. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal was waiting approval.
Relocation fees The sale figure works off a total valuation of the franchise, which includes relocation fees. Hansen’s group also is hoping to buy out other minority investors. The Maloofs will get a $30 million non-refundable down payment by Feb. 1, according to
NBA the deal, the person said They will still be allowed to receive other offers until the league approves the sale. The plan by Hansen’s group is to have the team play at least the next two seasons in KeyArena before moving into a new facility in downtown Seattle.
Deadline to apply The deadline for teams to apply for a move for next season is March 1. “We have always appreciated and treasured our ownership of the Kings and have had a great admiration for the fans and our team members,” Kings co-owner Gavin Maloof said in a statement on behalf of the family. “We would also like to thank Chris Hansen for his professionalism during our negotiation. Chris will be a great steward for the franchise.” Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson said last week he had received permission from NBA Commissioner David Stern to present a counteroffer to league owners from buyers who would keep the Kings in Sacramento. Johnson, himself a former All-Star point guard in the NBA, said in a statement that the city remained undeterred.

Super: Firsts CONTINUED FROM B1 With Kaepernickâ€™s terrific passing â€” he was 16 of 21 for 233 yards and a touchdown in only his ninth career NFL start â€” and two TD runs by Frank Gore, San Francisco erased a 17-point deficit to beat the Atlanta Falcons 28-24 Sunday. Baltimore then fashioned a comeback of its own, scoring the last 21 points to defeat the New England Patriots 28-13, thanks in large part to Flaccoâ€™s three second-half touchdown tosses, two to Anquan Boldin. Lewis and the rest of Baltimoreâ€™s defense limited the high-scoring Patriots to one touchdown. In the often risk-averse NFL, each Harbaugh made a critical change late in the regular season in a bid to boost his teamâ€™s postseason chances. Clearly, both moves worked. After 49ers quarterback Alex Smith, the starter in last seasonâ€™s overtime NFC title game loss to the Giants, got a concussion, Jim switched to Kaepernick for Week 11 â€” and never switched back. Now San Francisco has its first three-game winning streak of the season, at precisely the right time. Baltimore, meanwhile, was in the midst of a threegame losing streak when John fired offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and promoted quarterbacks coach Jim Caldwell to replace him. The 50-year-old John is 15 months older than Jim and generally the less demonstrative of the pair, although John certainly did

not lack intensity while making his case with officials a couple of times Sunday. The ever-excitable Jim â€” who was treated for an irregular heartbeat in November â€” was up to his usual sideline antics in Atlanta. He spun around and sent his headset flying when the original call stood after he threw his red challenge flag on a catch by the Falcons. He hopped and yelled at his defense to get off the field after their key fourthdown stop with less than 1Â˝ minutes left. He made an emphaticas-can-be timeout signal with 13 seconds remaining. Expect CBS to fill plenty of time during its Super Bowl broadcast with shots of Jim, that trademark red pen dangling in front of his chest, and John, who usually wears a black Ravens hat. That is sure to be a focal point, right up until they meet for a postgame handshake in two weeksâ€™ time.
