OlyCAP puts PT homes on market Sale of two buildings will keep local nonprofit going BY PAUL GOTTLIEB PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

Olympic Community Action Programs is selling two Port Townsend homes intended to house people with chronic mental illnesses. The move will ensure that the organization can remain financially stable and continue to serve low-income clients in Jefferson and Clallam counties, OlyCAP Director of Operations Geoff

Crump said Wednesday. “We are making sure the organization is financially sound across the board so we can continue to provide all our programs and services in the community,” said Crump, who will become OlyCAP’s executive director Tuesday. “Unfortunately, the priority right now is to make sure we stick around for years to come,” he said. “The goal is to serve as many folks as possible,” Crump added.

“The steps we are taking now will allow us to continue to do that for the next 50 years.” The board of directors that leads the n o n p r o f i t Crump organization voted to sell the three-bedroom house at 4608 Holcomb St., and a six-bedroom house at 1433 Sherman St. Each home is listed for sale for $220,000, Crump said. Crump said residents of the two homes have been moved into

more permanent housing and that the residences have been completely vacant since June. The decision to sell the properties was made a year ago, board chairman Rich Ciccarone said Wednesday. “It’s a healthy decision,” he said.

‘Under financial stress’ “OlyCAP has been under financial stress,” Ciccarone added. The organization has been facing funding cuts since 2007. OlyCAP is subletting portions of its facilities in Port Townsend and Port Angeles, Ciccarone said. “If we did nothing and stood idly by, we’d be having severe

issues,” he said. “We are just so focused on the finances of the organization. “It needs to get healthy, and we are getting there slowly and surely.” Staffing the residences on a non-full-time basis had cost at least $40,000 a year, Crump said, not counting maintenance costs. The expense of maintaining the properties “significantly increases” when dealing with people who do not have “ultimate responsibility” for the property, Crump said. The properties “jeopardize the financial health of OlyCAP,” Crump said. TURN



Art park vandalism lighter than feared Many pushed-over pieces merely have to be righted BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — Volunteers surveying damage to about three dozen outdoor art installations at the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center on Wednesday said that many were not actually broken during last week’s vandalism. The majority of damaged pieces had just been pushed off their bases, volunteers said, suggesting the highest repair costs might simply be in the labor and time it will take to replant the installations. “Which I think is good

news,” said center Executive Director Robin Anderson. “Maybe we can get some volunteers.” The vandalism reported last Thursday at Webster’s Woods — a 5-acre art park surrounding the center — damaged at least 35 outdoor art pieces, Anderson said. Police on Wednesday reported no new leads into the investigation of the vandalism at 1203 E. Lauridsen Blvd. “So far, we haven’t heard from anybody,” said Port Angeles Police Officer John Nutter, who is in charge of the investi-

gation. The park has been closed to public access since the vandalism was discovered. Anderson said she is planning to have a firm damage assessment done and have the park reopened — even if repairs aren’t complete — by the end of January. “I’ve set that as a personal goal,” she said.

Assessing the damage Vicci Rudin, president of the center’s board, and her husband, Mel Rudin, were among a handful of people who spent about two hours Wednesday morning surveying the Webster’s Woods grounds and assessing the damage. TURN

Christmas blaze ignites steeple Electrical short in cross blamed PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

SEQUIM — Fire officials are citing a faulty neon light socket as the cause of a Christmas Day fire that damaged the First Baptist Church of Sequim’s 12-foot steeple and prompted the steeple’s removal Wednesday. Alan Johnson, a member of the church’s building and grounds committee, confirmed the fire crew’s assessment, saying that a small neon cross affixed to the steeple was the source of the electrical short.

Reported as chimney fire

Church maintenance crew members took down the entire steeple on Wednesday morning after firefighters had taken 3 to 4 feet off the top after the Tuesday fire. Fire crews from Clallam County Fire District No. 3 were told at about 5:45 p.m. Tuesday of a reported chimney fire, but they later learned from 9-1-1 dispatch that the fire was in fact the church at 1323 Sequim-Dungeness Way, said Patrick Young, spokesperson for the Sequim Fire Department.

The first crews on the scene discovered that the fire was contained to the steeple of the church, which was not occupied at the time, Young said. After the fire was extinguished with no injuries, crews removed the top portion of the steeple for safety reasons and installed a piece of plywood over the hole to keep wind and rain from getting into the church, Young said. The scene was cleared by 7:15 p.m., Young said. Johnson said that he and church volunteers spent several hours Wednesday tearing down the remainder of the steeple, which — being atop a roughly 15-foot church structure — stood about 27 feet from the ground. The church has no plans to rebuild the steeple, he said. “It was a non-functioning steeple,” Johnson said, saying it had no bells and had no stairway up to it. The steeple and the original church were built in the 1980s, according to Johnson. The church sustained no fire, water or smoke damage, he said. Young lauded a passer-by who phoned 9-1-1 emergency dispatchers about the fire, saying that the call probably prevented the fire from spreading. TURN

Actor wants to purchase Tully’s Coffee ACTOR PATRICK DEMPSEY said he wants to rescue a coffee house chain and more than 500 jobs. The “Grey’s Anatomy” star said Wednesday he’s leading a group attempting to buy TulDempsey ly’s Coffee. The Seattle-based company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in October. Dempsey said he’s excited about the chance to help hundreds of workers and give back to Seattle. The actor has a strong TV tie to the city: He plays Dr. Derek Shepherd on “Grey’s Anatomy,” the ABC drama set at fictional Seattle Grace Hospital. Tully’s has 47 companyrun stores in Washington and California, as well as five franchised stores and 58 licensed locations in the U.S. Any sale would have to be approved by a judge. A bankruptcy court hearing is set for Jan. 11 in Seattle.

There’s a stamp depicting each one of the 11 actors who have played the mysterious lead character, with the first two stamps, showing William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton, in black-and-white. Curly-haired Tom Baker is perhaps the most associated with the role, since he played it the


longest, from 1974 to 1981. The Doctors all will be first-class British postage stamps, but four villains from the show — the Daleks, the Ood, the Weeping Angels and the Cybermen — will be honored with second-class stamps. The villain stamps will be sold on a sheet also including a first-class stamp featuring the TARDIS, the Doctor’s time machine. The BBC show originally ran from 1963 to 1989 and was brought back in 2005. Matt Smith, the current star, took over the role in 2010.

JOE KRIVAK, 77, a University of Maryland football coach from 1987 to 1991, has died. The school said he died Tuesday night. Mr. Krivak was quarterbacks coach for Bobby Ross in the 1980s, working with Boomer Esiason, Frank Reich and Stan Gelbaugh. After Ross left for Georgia Tech after the 1986 season, Mr. Krivak was promoted to head coach. Maryland went 20-34-2 under Mr. Krivak, who resigned after the 1991 season. His best year at Maryland was in 1990, when the Terrapins went 6-5-1 and tied Louisiana Tech in the Independence Bowl.

A3 Briefly: Nation Obama cutting short holiday due to ‘cliff’ HONOLULU — With a yearend deadline looming before the economy goes over the so-called fiscal cliff, President Barack Obama cut short his traditional Christmas holiday in Hawaii, planning to leave for Washington on Wednesday evening. Obama was expected to arrive in Washington early today, the White House said late Tuesday. First lady Michelle Obama and the couple’s two daughters are scheduled to remain in Hawaii until Jan. 6. In the past, the president’s end-of-the-year holiday in his native state had stretched into the new year. The first family left Washington last Friday. Congress was expected to return to Washington today. Without action by Obama and Congress, automatic budget cuts and tax increases are set to begin in January, which many economists said could send the country back into recession.

Interior Minister Mohammed al-Shaar, wounded in a bombing of his ministry in Damascus, left a Beirut hospital before his treatment was finished and flew to Damascus on a private jet, officials at Beirut’s Rafik Hariri International Airport said.

Huge blizzard kills 6; second front develops A foot and a half of snow dumped; storm heads east THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DETROIT — The first widespread snowstorm of the season weakened as it moved east Friday, but not before it dumped more than 1½ feet of snow in Michigan and made travel difficult in the Great Lakes region. A semitrailer went out of control on a bridge slick with snow, barreled down an embankment and struck a concrete barrier in Indiana, killing the driver.

Funerals for firefighters set; more ambush details emerge THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WEBSTER, N.Y. — Services were set for the two volunteer firefighters slain by 62-year-old ex-convict William Spengler, as he set out on a quest to burn down his neighborhood just before sunrise on Christmas Eve. When firefighters arrived to stop him, he unleashed a torrent of bullets, shattering the windshield of the fire truck that volunteer firefighter and Spengler police Lt. Michael Chiapperini, 43, drove to the scene. Fellow firefighter Tomasz Kaczowka, 19, who worked as a 9-1-1 dispatcher, was killed as well. Calling hours will be held at

Quick Read

Webster Schroeder High School on Friday and Saturday. A funeral service for Chiapperini was scheduled for noon Sunday at the high school. A funeral Mass for Kaczowka will be at 10 a.m. Monday at St. Stanislaus Church in Rochester. Police Chief Gerald Pickering said it was still unclear whether Spengler’s 67-year-old sister Cheryl, whose body is believed to have been recovered from the rubble, died before or during the fire.

Raging inferno “It was a raging inferno in there,” he said. As Pickering described it, the heavily armed Spengler took a position behind a small hill as four firefighters arrived after 5:30 a.m. to extinguish the fire. Several firefighters went beneath the truck to shield them-

selves as an off-duty police officer who came to the scene pulled his vehicle alongside the truck to try to shield them, authorities said. The first police officer who arrived chased and exchanged shots with Spengler, recounting it later over his police radio. “I could see the muzzle blasts comin’ at me. . . . I fired four shots at him. I thought he went down.” At another point, he said: “I don’t know if I hit him or not. He’s by a tree.” Pickering portrayed the officer as a hero who saved many lives. The audio posted on the website also has someone reporting “firefighters are down” and saying “got to be rifle or shotgun — high-powered . . . semi or fully auto.” Of Spengler, Pickering said, “I’m not sure we’ll ever know what was going through his mind.”

World: Russian lawmakers pass anti-U.S. adoption bill

MONKS IN THE Northern California town of Vina are rebuilding a 16th century Spanish monastery with help from an unlikely source: beer. In the 1930s, newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst imported the Trappist monastery, the Santa Maria de Ovila, stone by stone, for a mansion but gave the pieces to San Francisco. After the Abbey of New Clairvaux founder Father Thomas X. Davis began a campaign to restore the monastery, San Francisco agreed to turn over the stones to the abbey. The Chapter House is being rebuilt with the help of millions of dollars raised by the Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. in nearby Chico.

METHAMPHETAMINE LAB SEIZURES are on the rise in U.S. cities and suburbs, raising new concerns about a lethal drug that has been the scourge of rural America. The Associated Press found growing numbers of such seizures in St. Louis, Kansas City, Mo., Nashville, Tenn., and Evansville, Ind. “No question about it: There are more labs in the urban areas,” said Tom Farmer, coordinator of the Tennessee Methamphetamine and Pharmaceutical Task Force. “I’m seeing car fires from meth in urban areas now, more people getting burned,” he said.

SOME OF THE police officers who responded to the elementary school shooting in Newtown, Conn., are so traumatized they haven’t been working. But they have to use sick time and may be at risk of going without a paycheck, a union official said Wednesday. Council 15 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees talked to the town’s insurer. It also is reaching out to lawmakers and the governor’s office with proposals to expand benefits for officers who witness horrific crime scenes. “Unfortunately for these officers, the statute doesn’t allow any benefits,” said Eric Brown, an attorney for the union.

DEFYING A STORM of domestic and international criticism, Russia moved toward finalizing a ban on Americans adopting Russian children, as Parliament’s upper house voted unanimously Wednesday in favor of a measure that President Vladimir Putin has indicated he will sign into law. The bill is seen as the Kremlin’s retaliation against an American law calling for sanctions against Russians deemed to be human rights violators. It comes as Putin takes an increasingly confrontational attitude toward the West, brushing aside concerns about a crackdown on dissent and democratic freedoms.





Poulsbo man treated after fall into creek BY PAUL GOTTLIEB PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — A 72-year-old Poulsbo man who fell into a frigid creek at popular Rialto Beach on Christmas Day was treated for hypothermia at Forks Community Hospital and released Christmas night. Fred Springsteel’s fivehour ordeal began when he and a female companion were walking along the south side of Ellen Creek at Rialto Beach at about 1:45 p.m. Tuesday, Olympic National Park spokeswoman Rainey McKenna said Wednesday. That’s when Springsteel slipped and fell into the water. He became submerged before swimming to the

north side of the creek. “He went under water completely,� McKenna said. Once out of the creek, Springsteel could not cross back to the south side, McKenna said. A person walking along the beach called 9-1-1 at 3:07 p.m. to report the incident to emergency dispatchers.

“Responders from LaPush and Forks were able to successfully and safely cross him back over� Ellen Creek, McKenna said. “They walked him across and carried him.� Emergency personnel then carried Springsteel on a litter for about a mile to the Rialto Beach parking lot. That’s where Springsteel was picked up by a Forks Community Hospital ambulance at 5 p.m., McKenna said. Springsteel was released from the hospital at 6:45 p.m. Tuesday — just in time for Christmas dinner.

Peninsula sees slight rise in unemployment BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

Losses in trade, transportation and warehousing jobs fueled a rise in North Olympic Peninsula unemployment last month when state and national rates dropped, a regional economist said Wednesday. Clallam County shed 390 jobs as the unemployment rate rose from a revised 8.5 percent in October to a preliminary 9.1 percent in November, the state Employment Security Department reported. Jefferson County lost 80 jobs and saw its unemployment scale up from 8.2 to 8.7 percent over that span. The state unemploy-

ment rate dropped from 8.2 to 7.8 percent in November, while the national jobless rate went from 7.9 to 7.7 percent. That led Elizabeth Court, regional economist with the Employment Security Department, to say that the economy is showing positive momentum despite monthly “ups and downs.�

Pre-holiday buildup Court said most of the job losses on the Peninsula were “things related to the pre-holiday shopping buildup.� Clallam County gained 40 retail jobs as the holiday season ramped up but lost

90 jobs in transportation and warehousing and 50 in trade. “Sometimes before the holiday season we see a buildup in trade transportation and warehousing, then as stuff gets out to retailers it drops off,� Court said. The November unemployment rates in both counties were lower than they were in November 2011. Thirteen months ago, Clallam County’s jobless rate was 9.5 percent and Jefferson County’s was 9.0 percent. Clallam County’s labor force shrank from 28,550 in October to 28,290

last month. Jobless rates don’t account for those who have stopped looking for work. Jefferson County’s labor force remained flat at 11,940, with 1,030 job seekers and 10,910 employed. Whitman County in southeast Washington had the state’s lowest unemployment rate at 5.2 percent in November. Lewis County in southwest Washington had the highest jobless rate at 11.5 percent.

Vietnam fighting a war with itself From Hanoi, Vietnam IT HAS BEEN 50 years since President John F. Kennedy ordered U.S. “advisers” to South Vietnam to help battle the communist North, and 37 years since the end of that divisive war and the country’s unification under Communism. Today, Vietnam is fighting Cal a war with Thomas itself. A local TV program reminds a visitor of Chinese propaganda “operas” circa 1970. Performers — some wearing military garb with a backdrop of missiles and an American B-52 bomber going down in flames — commemorate the 1972 Christmas bombing of Hanoi and Haiphong ordered by President Richard Nixon. Banners and posters in the streets reinforce the government’s history lesson. Younger people, who substantially outnumber the old guard, seem mostly indifferent to these messages because few lived through the war.

An American official told me that just 4 percent of the population belongs to the Communist Party. While there are large pockets of poverty between and even within major cities like Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang and Hanoi, prosperity is making inroads. The 1-year-old Da Nang airport is more modern than some U.S. airports. Luxury hotels, clothing stores and restaurants abound. Many locals wear stylish Western clothes and transport themselves on motorbikes and in cars. Twenty years ago, the primary mode of transportation was the bicycle. Vietnam eagerly wants to conclude a trade agreement with the United States known as TPP. Among other things, it would allow for more capital investment here and more Vietnamese goods to be sold in the United States. Deputy Foreign Minister Nguyen Phuong Nga told me that since normalization of relations in 1995, the U.S. has become the “eighth-biggest foreign investor in Vietnam,” totaling $10 billion. U.S. officials say human rights issues, including more religious freedom, are holding up Ameri-

I asked Madame Nga about this and the recent sentencing of three bloggers to between four and 12 years in prison for criticizing the government.

bodies of American soldiers missing in action. Madame Nga said Vietnam has “actively worked with and supported the U.S. in finding the MIAs during the last 20 years,” but notes that on the Vietnamese side “about 3 million MIAs remain to be found.” She also said “there are more than 3 million Vietnamese known as victims of Agent Orange . . . while thousands of hectares of land are contaminated with dioxin.” She added her appreciation for money provided by Congress to help victims and clean land, but she said more is needed. As in many other one-party states, the Internet remains a powerful counterforce to managed information. The U.S. Embassy provides — and the government mostly allows — an information center where students and others can log onto iPads and search for information that is often counter to the government line. The old guard remains suspicious about American objectives, seeing economic and political liberalization as a strategy to achieve among the Vietnamese people what America failed to in pursuing their “hearts and minds” in the war. Professor Carlyle A. Thayer of


the University of New South Wales, an expert on Vietnam, said recently: “Vietnam is motivated to keep the U.S. engaged in Southeast Asia, and the South China Sea in particular, as a balance to China,” which claims some territorial rights in conflict with Vietnam and is a formidable economic and military power on its northern border. Vietnam is in transition, and it is unrealistic to expect too much progress too quickly. Considering where it was when the U.S. left in 1975, the country appears to be inching in a positive direction. Those Americans who died here left behind the seeds of democracy, capitalism and a desire for prosperity and freedom. Whatever one’s view of that war, it can be said they did not die in vain.

reduce the cost of back braces or increase the age for Medicare eligibility. Doesn’t it make more sense to have competitive bidding? A recent Institute of Medicine Report stated that there is at least 30 percent waste in our current health care system. Part of the waste is explained in that Medicare pays beyond the competitive market rate of products and services. So why doesn’t Congress fix it? Seems that industries object. Why wouldn’t they; it’s pretty nice to have a $700 profit on each brace. I say step up, Congress, and fix the waste before there is any discussion of decreasing benefits. Bertha D. Cooper, Sequim

Pull the global trigger on gun control WHILE THE FINAL funerals for the victims of the Newtown, Conn., school massacre have been held, gun violence continues apace. Most notably is the ChristAmy mas Eve murGoodman der of two volunteer firefighters in rural Webster, N.Y., at the hands of an ex-convict who was armed, as was Newtown shooter Adam Lanza, with a Bushmaster .223 caliber AR-15 semiautomatic rifle. James Holmes, the alleged perpetrator of the massacre last July in Aurora, Colo., stands accused of using, among other weapons, a Smith & Wesson AR-15 with a 100-round drum in place of standard magazine clip. Standing stalwartly against any regulation of these weapons and high-capacity magazines, the National Rifle Association continues to block any gun-control laws whatsoever, and even trumpets its efforts to block the global Arms

Trade Treaty, slated for negotiations at the United Nations this March. On Christmas Eve, the same day as the attack in Webster, the U.N. General Assembly voted to move ahead with 10 days of negotiations on the Arms Trade Treaty, to start March 18. Recall, it was last July that the Obama administration said it “needed more time” to review the proposed treaty, effectively killing any hope of getting a treaty passed and sent back to member nations for ratification. This was just one week after the Aurora massacre and in the heat of a close presidential-election campaign. The NRA succeeded in helping to scuttle the global Arms Trade Treaty, delivering to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton a letter opposing the treaty signed by 50 U.S. senators, including eight Democrats, and 130 members of the House of Representatives. The global treaty shouldn’t be controversial. By signing on, governments agree not to export weapons to countries that are under an arms embargo, or to export weapons














that would facilitate “the commission of genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes” or other violations of international humanitarian law. Exports of arms are banned if they will facilitate “gender-based violence or violence against children” or be used for “transnational organized crime.” The treaty deals with international exports of weapons and ammunition, not any nation’s internal, domestic laws that govern the sale or use of guns. Amnesty International last week called on the NRA to “immediately drop its campaign of distortions and lies about the pending United Nations’ global Arms Trade Treaty.” Amnesty USA’s Michelle Ringuette elaborated: “Every day, 1,500 people die in armed conflicts around the world — one person every minute. “These unregulated weapons are used to force tens of thousands of children into armed conflict and to rape women and girls in conflict zones. “More than 26 million people around the globe are forced from their homes, and their livelihoods destroyed, by armed conflict.

“The NRA must immediately stand down on its campaign to block a global arms trade treaty.” NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre rolled out his public response to the Newtown massacre one week after it happened, blaming the violence on “monsters” and everything from video games to hurricanes — but not allowing that guns and their ready availability in the U.S. might have something to do with it. At his press conference, LaPierre was twice dramatically interrupted by peace activists from the group Code Pink. The first banner, held by Tighe Barry, read: “NRA Killing Our Kids.” Barry held the banner in front of the podium, silently, as LaPierre tried to continue his speech. Barry was then pulled out. After LaPierre resumed his speech, Medea Benjamin rose, holding a banner reading “NRA: Blood on your hands,” after which she was hauled away. Two days later, on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” LaPierre denied that regulating semiautomatic weapons or high-capacity magazines would help stem the epidemic of mass shootings in this country.

The NRA exerts enormous influence over state and federal gun regulation. Andrew Feinstein, who wrote the book The Shadow World: Inside the Global Arms Trade, told me: “I have not seen anywhere else in the world a gun lobby that has the same level of influence on its own government as the NRA does in the United States.” He went on: “The U.S. buys and sells almost as much weaponry as the rest of the world combined. So what happens in the U.S. is going to have enormous impact on the rest of the world.” From the hallways of Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, to Afghanistan, to Somalia, the flood of U.S. weapons and ammunition fuels violence, death and injury. President Obama and Congress need to take action, now.

Rivals to battle at Crush in the Slush Chimacum and PT set for Friday BY BRAD LABRIE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT TOWNSEND — The second act of the rivalry showdown between the Port Townsend and Chimacum boys and girls basketball teams will highlight the seventh annual Crush in the Slush tournament Friday and Saturday. Port Townsend hosts the 15-team prep tourney that also will feature two Australian all-star teams and two Class 4A boys state powerhouses. Other area teams participating in the popular tourney will be the Neah Bay boys and the Sequim girls. The tourney has an odd number of teams because the Wenatchee Panthers will be taking the place of the Neah Bay Red Devils on the second day of the boys bracket. The Red Devils are playing Friday only. All Jefferson County eyes, though, will be on the rematch between archrivals Chimacum and Port Townsend in Friday’s firstround games. The two schools went at it in round one of their 2012-2013 rivalry last weekend in two barn-burning defensive gems. The Port Townsend girls, 6-3 overall and 4-3 in the Olympic League, shaded Chimacum 42-41 in a game that went down to the wire Dec. 20.

Oh, so close The Cowboys, 0-7 overall and 0-5 in the Nisqually League, came close to their first win of the season. Chimacum will try again to get in the win column against its rival and spoil the Redskins’ opening Crush in the Slush game Friday at 4 p.m. The boys’ first rivalry game was almost as close as

The Redskins, 2-7 overall and 1-6 in the Olympic League, will try to turn the tables against the Cowboys, 2-5 overall and 0-5 in the Nisqually League, at 7:30 p.m. on Friday. “It will be another good game, I’m hoping,” Chimacum coach Jim Eldridge said. Both teams will be a little short-handed with some players out of town for the holidays. Chimacum, which beat

Port Townsend two times last year, will be missing starting forward Riley Downs, who pulled down 10 rebounds and had six points against the Redskins last week, and backup post Seth Ham. The Redskins will be missing starting post Skyler Coppenrath. “We have some guys who can fill in for Skyler, they just need to step it up,” Port Townsend coach Tom Webster said. TURN

M’s officially announce Ibanez deal Seattle last week added power-hitting Kendrys Morales in a trade that sent left-hander Jason Vargas to the Los Angeles Angels.


SEATTLE — The Seattle Mariners officially announced their $2.75 million, one-year deal with outfielder Raul Ibanez on Wednesday, returning the veteran to where he began his major league career in 1996. Seattle confirmed an agreement with Ibanez over the weekend but needed to clear a roster spot before making the transaction official. That took place when the Mariners designated for assignment right-handed pitcher D.J. Mitchell, opening a spot on the 40-man roster. Mitchell was acquired from the New York Yankees in the trade last July for Ichiro. The deal allows Ibanez to earn an additional $1.25 million in performance bonuses. This will be his third stint with the Mariners, after rejoining them from 2004-08. “Raul is the ultimate professional both on and off the field,” Seattle manager Eric Wedge said in a statement. “His veteran presence will be invaluable to our younger group of players.” Seattle general manager Jack Zduriencik has said the team wanted to add veteran leadership in the offseason. The 40-year-old Ibanez hit .240 with 19 homers and 62 RBIs in 384 at-bats for the Yankees last season. Including the playoffs, Ibanez hit five home runs that tied the score for the

Jaso expendable?


Raul Ibanez, mobbed by teammates after hitting a game-winning home run for the New York Yankees in the playoffs last October, has rejoined Seattle for the third time. Yankees and eight that put New York ahead, according to STATS. He homered twice after entering as a pinch hitter on Sept. 22 in a 10-9, 14-inning win over Oakland. And with New York fighting for the AL East title, he delivered a tying, pinch-hit homer against

started their way to a fourgame sweep. Whether there’s another season of production left in Ibanez’s bat is uncertain. He’ll be joining the worst offensive team in baseball, which has tried to make incremental upgrades during the offseason but has been unable to make a huge splash.

Former Yankees prospect Jesus Montero started 77 games at designated hitter last season for the Mariners and 55 behind the plate, so Ibanez’s acquisition by the Mariners could make catcher John Jaso expendable. Jaso made 39 starts behind the plate and 44 at DH. The Mariners also signed former Mets slugger Jason Bay to a one-year deal in the hope that he could restart a career that fell off in New York. But there remain questions about whether any of the three can make a significant difference to Seattle’s scuffling offense. “In Raul, we have a player and person with outstanding leadership skills who has participated in postseason play the last several years,” Zduriencik said. “We will give Raul the opportunity to come in and compete and add an additional veteran presence to this ball club.” In 17 major league seasons that also included time with Kansas City (2001-03) and Philadelphia (2009-11), Ibanez has a .278 career average with 271 home runs and 1,116 RBIs.

Unger, Okung voted Pro Bowl first team THE ASSOCIATED PRESS AND NEWS SOURCES

The Seattle Seahawks announced that offensive linemen Russell Okung and Max Unger have been selected to this year’s Pro Bowl team. Unger is the center while Okung is the left tackle for the Seahawks. The honor was the first for both players, and will serve as a homecoming of sorts for Unger, who hales from Hawaii. “I’m very proud of them,” Seahawks offensive line coach Tom Cable said. “I think that the work they’ve put in has paid off for them. It’s a pretty neat deal.” Named to the second team was running back Marshawn Lynch, who earned his third Pro Bowl nod, and safety Earl Thomas, who will make his second trip to Hawaii. Leon Washington was selected as the return specialist for the NFC, the third time he’s been selected to the team. Players are picked by a combined vote of fans, coaches and fellow players. The Seahawks also had eight alternates — defensive end Chris Clemons (1st), fullback Michael Robinson (1st) and cornerback Richard Sherman (1st), safety Kam Chancellor

(2nd), special teamer Heath Farwell (2nd) and punter Jon Ryan (2nd), quarterback Russell Wilson (3rd) and defensive tackle Brandon Mebane (4th). Those players would be named to the team if a selected member of the NFC squad cannot participate. Meanwhile, sensational comebacks have Peyton Manning and Adrian Peterson headed for the Pro Bowl also. Also selected Wednesday to the NFL’s All-Star Game was Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III. Manning missed all of the 2011 season with neck and back problems that required several operations. He then signed with Denver as a free agent and has led the Broncos to a 10-game winning streak and the AFC West title. “I know there’s great players out there in the NFL, but there’s some great players on this team this year that deserve to go,” said Manning, who ranks fourth in the league in passing, has thrown 34 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Four other Broncos made the AFC roster: defensive end Elvis Dumervil, linebacker Von Miller, cornerback Champ Bailey and tackle Ryan Clady. Minnesota’s Peterson

tore up his left knee on Christmas Eve last year, underwent major surgery, then was back for the season opener. He’s gone from uncertain to unstoppable, running away with the rushing title with a career-high 1,898 yards and lifting the Vikings toward an NFC wild card. “Coming into the season after going through the rehab process, I just told myself that I wanted to lead my team to a championship and make sure that I contribute and do my part,” Peterson said. “I’ve been doing it.” Griffin is one of three rookie QBs who had superb debut seasons, along with Andrew Luck of Indianapolis and Wilson of Seattle. Luck and Wilson weren’t voted to the Pro Bowl by players, coaches and fans, although their teams are in the playoffs. Griffin can get to the postseason if Washington beats Dallas on Sunday. “You go out and you prove it on the field, and if everyone feels that way then they’ll give you that award.” San Francisco had the most players selected with nine, including six from its second-ranked defense. Houston was next with eight, six on offense.


Seattle offensive linemen Max Unger, right, and Russell Okung were voted to the NFC Pro Bowl first team Wednesday. Kansas City, despite its 2-13 record that is tied with Jacksonville for worst in the league, had five Pro Bowlers, including RB Jamaal Charles, who like Peterson is coming back

from a torn ACL. One other rookie, Minnesota kicker Blair Walsh, was chosen. Walsh has nine field goals of at least 50 yards, an NFL record.

Another record-setter will be heading to Honolulu for the Jan. 27 Pro Bowl: Detroit wide receiver Calvin Johnson. Johnson broke Jerry Rice’s single-season yards.

Starbucks cups are getting political steer clear of politics to avoid alienating customers, the plea to “Come Together� is a sentiment unlikely to cause controversy. If anything, Starbucks could score points with customers and burnish its image as a socially conscious company.


NEW YORK — Starbucks is using its coffee cups to jump into the political fray in Washington. The world’s biggest coffee chain is asking employees at cafes in the Washington, D.C., area to scribble the words “Come Together� on cups for drink orders today and Friday.

Beam moves, interacts from remote locales THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PALO ALTO, Calif. — Engineer Dallas Goecker attends meetings, jokes with colleagues and roams the office building just like other employees at his company in Silicon Valley. But Goecker isn’t in California. He’s more than 2,300 miles away, working at home in Seymour, Ind. It’s made possible by the Beam — a mobile videoconferencing machine he can drive around the Palo Alto offices and workshops of Suitable Technologies. The 5-foot-tall device, topped with a large video screen, gives him a physical presence that makes him and his colleagues feel as if he’s actually there. “This gives you that casual interaction that you’re used to at work,� Goecker said, speaking on a Beam. “I’m sitting in my desk area with everybody else. I’m part of their conversations and their socializing.� Suitable Technologies, which makes the Beam, is one of more than a dozen companies to sell so-called telepresence robots. These remote-controlled machines are equipped with video cameras, speakers, microphones and wheels that allow users to see, hear, talk and “walk� in faraway locations.


Software engineer Josh Faust, on screen at left, moves through his company, Suitable Technologies’ office in Palo Alto, Calif., using a Beam remote presence system as engineer Stephanie Lee works on a project. But these robotic standins are still a long way from going mainstream, with only a small number of organizations using them. The machines can be expensive, hard to navigate and can get stuck if they venture into areas with poor Internet connectivity.

‘Great’ potential And stairs can be lethal. “There are still a lot of questions, but I think the potential is really great,� said Pamela Hinds, codirector of Stanford University’s Center on Work, Technology, & Organization.

Menlo Park where Goecker worked as an engineer. A few years ago, he moved back to his native Indiana but found it difficult to collaborate with colleagues using existing video-conferencing systems. So Goecker and his colleagues created the Beam. At $16,000 each, the Beam isn’t cheap. But Suitable Technologies said it was designed to make “pilots� and “locals� feel the remote worker is physically in the room: powerful speakers, highly sensitive microphones and robust wireless connectivity. Not surprisingly, Suitable Technologies has fully embraced the Beam. On any given day, up to half of its 25 employees “beam� into work. This allows me to do that without any of the instability of trying to find a different job,� engineer Josh Faust said from Kaanapali, Hawaii. “It’s pretty amazing,� he said.

NEW YORK — A massive winter storm disrupted travel plans for tens of thousands of fliers trying to get home after Christmas. Snow, thunderstorms, sleet, tornados and high winds grounded planes in the Midwest and slowed East Coast operations. By 11 a.m. EST Wednesday, more than 600 flights nationwide had been scrapped, according to flight tracking site More cancellations were likely, with Washington, D.C., New York and Philadelphia expected to see the largest problems. Wind gusts at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, for example, were expected to exceed 50 mph Wednesday night.

Medifast CEO quits NEW YORK — Shares of Medifast plunged 13 percent Wednesday after the weight-loss company announced the resignation of its acting chief financial officer, the second person to resign as CFO in less than two months. Edward Powers notified the company last week he’d resign Jan. 4. He took over Nov. 13 for CFO Brendan Connors, who also resigned. Powers joined Medifast as senior controller in 2011 and previously worked as global controller of the construction group at Stanley Black & Decker Inc. Medifast said Joseph Kelleman, director of finance for its supply chain, will be acting CFO. Shares of Medifast Inc., based in Owings Mills, Md., fell $3.80 to $25.56.

The robots have attracted the attention of Russian venture capitalist Dimitry Grishin. “I definitely see a lot of opportunity,� Grishin said. “Eventually, it can be in each home and each office.� His Grishin Robotics fund recently invested $250,000 in a startup called Double Robotics. The Sunnyvale, Calif., company started selling a Segway-like device called the Double that holds an Apple iPad, which has a built-in video-conferencing system called FaceTime. Double Robotics has sold more than 800 units that cost $1,999 each, said cofounder Mark DeVidts. The Beam got its start as a side project at Willow Garage, a company in

awareness about the negotiations and that Starbucks will use social media to explain the effort. The Seattle-based company said test runs at select stores showed operations wouldn’t be slowed. Schultz said the message is a way to underscore the damage being done to the “consumer psyche and behavior� by the talks. Although he said Starbucks sales haven’t been affected, he points out that Wal-Mart Stores Inc.

High-speed rail HONG KONG — China began service Wednesday on the world’s longest high-speed rail line, covering a distance in eight hours that is about equal to that from New York to Key West, Fla., or from London across Europe to Belgrade. Bullet trains traveling 186 mph began regular service between Beijing and Guangzhou, the main metropolis in southeastern China. Completion of the Beijing-Guangzhou route is the latest sign that China has resumed rapid construction on one of the world’s largest and most ambitious projects. It comprises a network of four north-south routes and four east-west routes that span the immense country.

Wilder Auto and Ellen Dearinger would like to congratulate Jeff Freeland, winner of our $200 Shopping Spree!





‘Safe,’ for anyone, is relative term IN A FEW days, it will be 2013, and that’s about as “current” as I feel like being. What I feel like doing is looking back to what I said last week because that’s what a lot of you have felt like doing. Good! Let’s do it. Last week, I went on about “help” — dignity and respect — and negotiation. I went on about how we often go out and do all kinds of stuff for “Mom” (or whomever) because we love her, and we want her to be safe. But we neglect to negotiate that “help,” so “help” becomes part of the problem. She starts acting “less than” and blah blah blah.

Operative word Today, the operative word is “safe.” I’ve heard from a number of you on the subject. You really do want Mom to be safe, and she isn’t safe now, living where she’s living or the way she’s living, etc. And you’re probably right. I’m not suggesting that we stop caring about whether Mom is safe. That’s just stupid. And since we call this little column “Help Line,” not “Stu-


pid Line,” I think we can safely dispense with that, but I also think there’s something worth considering — something that might flavor the conversation.


No one is safe Tell me the last time you, or anybody you know, was “safe.” You weren’t safe the day you got here! Hopefully, you were welcomed and cleaned up and fed and cuddled and kept warm and hovered-over by any number of very protective big people, but were you absolutely safe? No, you weren’t. Some bad medical thing could have happened or somebody could have dropped you or there could have been an earthquake or a meteor shower . . . Unlikely, I agree, but possible. So, were you safe? No, you were just safer than you might have been. Safer — not “safe.”

And if most of us stop and really think about it, that’s the way it’s been all of our lives because “safe” is a relative thing. Now, I’m not talking about reclusive billionaires with 2-inch-long fingernails and a battalion of underlings singularly dedicated to killing germs. Nor am I talking about teenagers, who are often incapable of discerning the difference between safe and a pizza. And I’m certainly not talking about anyone with dementia or Alzheimer’s or any other brain-impacting condition. I’m talking about most of us, normal, most of the time, where safe is a relative thing. We’ve spent our lives making decisions, making choices, taking some chances and calculated risks. Often, we’ve done alright or gotten by. Sometimes, we’ve paid a price. But we made choices about what we were or were not willing to live with — calculated risks — because it, he, she or they were worth it to us. Yes, I know all too well how often we’ve made mistakes that we’ll regret to the end of our days. All I have to do to know that is go look in a mirror. But

An example Here’s an example that I’ve used before, because I know it’s true because I lived it. Mom is a bit overweight and has severe arthritis, which bends her over; thus, getting up and down from chairs, sofas and beds is a bit more “exciting” than she might like it to be. Mom also has two small, very overweight dogs who adore her and sleep at her feet, so every time she gets up, two small, fat dogs think, “Party time!” And are all over the place! Running and jumping and tailchasing and . . . Might Mom trip over

Port Angeles resident Robert “Bob” Haugstad will be 90 years old on New Year’s Eve. He was born in Black River Falls, Wis., one of four boys. One brother, Phil, was a pitcher for the Brooklyn Dodgers when they won the pennant in 1953. After high school, Mr. Haugstad went to trade school in Milwaukee. He spent four years in the Navy and then joined the Coast Guard, retiring in Port Angeles.

His ship was about 50 miles out when the bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. Mr. Haugstad has many wonder- Mr. Haugstad ful memories of being a mechanic on airplanes, flying to many places and meeting many government officials. He was trained to fly, in

What’s it worth? Look around, wherever you are. Are you safe? Could you be safer? Probably. Is it worth it to you? Why not? Oh, sure, I know. We could all come up with a million examples and scenarios and debate the common sense of this vs. that. And no, I don’t think there’s any harm in advocating with Mom to have the washing machine

moved upstairs in order to avoid those way-too-steep, piece-of-crap stairs to the basement because, sometimes, she’ll say, “Yes,” or at least, “OK.”

Whose decision? But it is, after all, up to her, isn’t it? Or is it up to you? Or me? Or us? Because if it’s up to us, we’ll go do the right thing, which could, soon enough, become the wrong thing as we watch Mom begin to become someone else: weak, frightened, listless and lifeless. But safe. The spirit is much more fragile than that old hip bone will ever be. So, I’ll say it again: Take the word “negotiation” and have it tattooed on your heart, then pray that the people who love you will do the same.

Birthday Robert ‘Bob’ Haugstad

one of these manic little critters and bust her youknow-what? Then lie there for God-only-knows how long, hoping somebody will come to help? Yes. Absolutely. Then get rid of the dogs, right? Then, she’ll be safe! Well, OK, but those two fat little yappers are what give purpose and meaning to her days and reason to get up in the morning. And they’re who keep her company long after you’ve gone back to your own busy life to be busy. They’re who’s there. And now, in the name of safety, we’ll eliminate the risk. And her reason and her purpose and her company. Gee, thanks for making me safe.

that’s what we did, and it’s still what we do. It’s just the nature of the planet. So, why is it that when some of us turn some magic age or our hair changes color on its own or we have a limp or whatever, we’re suddenly required to be safe? When did we forfeit the right — and the curse — to make decisions about our safety, regardless of how extraordinarily idiotic they may be? We didn’t. Other people just decided we did.

Each morning, he makes sure the bird feeders are full. He still lives alone and finds peace in the forest, cutting wood for his wood stove.

many instances, on two-seater planes. Mr. Haugstad lost his wife of 59 years, Dolores, in 2006. He has two daughters, Janet and Gege, who live in Spokane. He also has two granddaughters, one grandson and two great-grandsons. His brother, Art, lives in Sequim. Mr. Haugstad enjoys visiting with his neighbors when he is out in his yard and they are walking by. He says, with a chuckle, it’s his only social life.

DEAR ABBY: How can I set healthy boundaries with my best friend without feeling guilty? I have always been supportive and available because I sympathized with her difficult family dynamics during childhood and adulthood. She often talks to me about her problems with family and ever-changing relationships with men but rarely allows me or others to share their points of view or personal concerns. Saying “no” to her is challenging under any circumstance, and she demands that all focus be on her in social situations. I love and accept my friend as she is, and I try to give her all the grace I have. I now realize that setting healthy boundaries is the only way I can sustain our friendship. I know this dynamic may put a strain on our relationship, so why do I feel so guilty? Tested in Northern California

Dear In It: If you’re asking if I have statistics on the number of women who stay married only for economic reasons, the answer is no. Most of the people who write to me are unhappy, which would skew the numbers in a negative direction. I hope you realize that the women you have described — an older demographic — were probably not economically independent when they married. It was common in their generation to go straight from their parents’ houses to their husbands’. For many years I — and my mother before me — have urged women to make sure they are selfsupporting before they marry, “just in case” they may have to be afterward. Staying in a marriage without love is like serving a life sentence with an incompatible cell mate. Your mother and mother-in-law have my sympathy, and so do their husbands.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Shopping, traveling and finding entertaining ways to spend your time will highlight your day. Love is on the rise and an interest someone has in you will lead to positive future prospects. A physical change will result in compliments. 3 stars

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Make plans. You don’t want to be left behind. Be the one to suggest trying something new or going somewhere you’ve never been before. Don’t hold back -- take action and turn your thoughts into reality. An interesting connection with a co-worker will surprise you. 3 stars

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): What you contribute to your community or to those less fortunate will help you find a new outlet for a talent you have or a service you can offer. Don’t allow negativity or uncertainty to stifle your plans. Show compassion and strength. 4 stars

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t fold under pressure. Look for a creative way to bypass someone trying to corner you. Trust in yourself and your own expertise to get what you want and when. Change isn’t always the answer. Work with what you have. 3 stars by Hank Ketcham

Van Buren

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Talk to someone you look up to or who has experience you can benefit from. Change is required, but you have to figure out what’s best for you and implement it for anything good to happen. Don’t procrastinate -- discover your talent. 4 stars

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You can score big if you put a little muscle behind your ideas. A partnership will take a positive turn and develop into something very special. Speak up, share your thoughts and you will find out how much you have in common. 3 stars

Dear Tested: That’s a good question, and one that I can’t definitively answer for you. It’s possible that like many women, you were raised to believe that if you assert yourself you won’t be considered “nice.” That’s a mistake because as long as you allow this friend to take advantage of you — and that is what she’s doing — the more your resentment will build until the relationship becomes one of diminishing returns.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Dive into unusual forms of entertainment, hobbies or art forms you’ve never engaged in before and you will discover an interest that you can incorporate into your work as well as your personal life. Let your intuition guide you. 3 stars

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Careful how you move forward. What you say will have a direct impact on the way you are treated. Don’t look for sympathy. Emotional matters will escalate, leaving you in an uncompromising position. Honesty will be necessary. 2 stars

Accord gives hard, bumpy ride Dear Doctor: I am leasing the new 2013 Honda Accord with the four-cylinder engine. From Day One, it’s given us a hard, shaky, feel-every-bump-in-theroad ride, which is unacceptable for me and my wife. We are senior citizens who cannot be happy with this condition for the next three years of the lease. We went back to the dealer twice for road tests, and they said this is the way the car is built and they cannot change it. Do you think it’s the tires, struts, suspension shocks or anything else that would cause this problem of an unacceptable ride? Seymour Dear Seymour: What gives a car a hard ride are struts that have a large piston and the springs that have a high pressure rate. The tire sidewalls are short, hard and not flexible. This also would contribute to the hard ride. The Accord is not defective, and the dealer and manufacturer don’t have any legal responsibility under your complaint. You can, at your own expense, change the tire size to a tire with a larger sidewall. This may soften
