Marijuana case may be thrown out Judge rules to suppress OPNET-gathered evidence BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT TOWNSEND — Superior Court Judge Craddock D. Verser has issued an oral ruling to suppress evidence gathered by the Olympic Peninsula Narcotics Enforcement Team, or OPNET, during an October 2009 raid. According to the clerk’s minutes, Verser said OPNET trespassed on Steve Fager’s property, and he granted a motion by Michael Haas, who represents the

55-year-old Sequim man, to suppress evidence collected then. Haas hopes to see the bench ruling in Jefferson County Court on Wednesday lead to a dismissal of charges against his client, who is accused of an illegal marijuana grow operation.

‘Disallow the evidence’ “The judge made it clear that he was going to disallow the evidence against my client,” Haas said.

“Once this happens, he will have no option but to dismiss the case because all the evidence collected will have been gutVerser ted.” A representative of OPNET said the agency most likely would appeal Verser’s suppression of the evidence and that the case would continue to trial. Haas said Verser asked him to prepare findings of fact and law for a written ruling that will be issued at a later date.

“We don’t have a court date yet,” Haas said. Verser will return to the bench Jan. 2 and will retire Jan. 11. Haas said he intends to submit his findings during that period so Verser can make a final ruling on the suppression and possibly dismiss the case before leaving office. “There is a possibility that both sides could accept the suppression of evidence, which would end the case,” said OPNET spokesman Jason Viada. “But I think it’s likely that the state will approach the Court of Appeals Division 1 with a request to reverse Judge Verser’s decision.” That action would extend the process, and the case then would

be heard by Verser’s successor, Keith Harper. Haas filed a motion in November 2011 requesting that drug charges against Fager be dropped and alleging that OPNET officers abused the law in gathering evidence from Fager’s home on Glendale Drive in Sequim and medical marijuana cooperative in Discovery Bay. Steve Fager and his younger brother, Tim Fager, 54, are charged with possession of marijuana with intent to manufacture or deliver in Jefferson County. Steve Fager also is charged with possession of more than 40 grams of marijuana in Clallam County. TURN



Vandals ravage outdoor art park Ruined works include PT pieces BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — An overnight vandalism attack devastated at least 35 sculptures at the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center. The sculptures in Webster’s Woods, a 5-acre outdoor art park, were broken or pulled from their stands, said Director Robin Anderson. The attack happened late Wednesday or early Thursday. Port Angeles police officers Thursday afternoon had no leads or descriptions of vehicles, and the police department is seeking information leading to the vandal or vandals. The first sign of the destruction was an overturned 8-foot-tall mushroom sculpture that Anderson spotted at about 10 a.m.

Thursday when she arrived at her office at the arts center at 1203 E. Lauridsen Blvd. “It’s right outside my window,” Anderson said. At first, she thought the giant wooden mushroom had fallen because of natural erosion or aging, she said, but an hour later, a visitor to the art park came in to report more damage. Webster’s Woods features artworks by people from over the Pacific Northwest and Canada, including artists on the North Olympic Peninsula, and draws visitors from around the world.

SEQUIM — Drivers beware: Roosevelt elk are massed in the woods near Whitefeather Way and may decide to cross high-speed U.S. Highway 101. On Thursday, information from tracking collars worn by cows in the Dungeness herd led wildlife officials to believe it was preparing to cross the highway about a mile southeast of downtown Sequim. Sheriff’s deputies are poised to close the highway if that happens. “We’re concerned because of where they are,” said Tim Cullinan, wildlife program coordinator for the Point No Point Treaty Council, which manages the herd. About 35 elk were in woods north of the highway, in an area where the road curves and the treeline is close to the highway, giving drivers very little time to stop, he said. TURN TO ELK/A6

FRANK BEARDSLEY, 97, who died Dec. 11 in Santa Rosa, Calif., was a 45-year-old father of 10 when he married Helen North, a mother of eight, on Sept. 9, 1961. Reporters and a large crowd flocked to the church in Carmel, Calif., for the wedding and later to the a courthouse in Salinas, Calif., at which each parent adopted the other’s children. Within three years, the couple had two more children. The attention didn’t end. Tour buses stopped outside their home. A bread company hired the Beardsleys to do a commercial and posted a family photograph on its trucks. Shortly after their marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Beardsley appeared on Johnny Carson’s “Tonight” show. In 1965, Helen Beardsley wrote a book, Who Gets the Drumstick? It described assemblyline sandwich-making and dormlike living in a house that had to be expanded to eight bedrooms and five bathrooms. By then, Mr. Beardsley was retired from the Navy and had opened a gift shop. The family later owned three bakeries as well. Helen Beardsley’s book caught the attention of Lucilla Ball, whose Desilu Studios bought the rights

and adapted it for film. Three years later, in 1968, it released “Yours, Mine and Ours,” starring Ball and Henry Fonda. Son Gregory Beardsley credited his parents with not overplaying the family’s fame. “My parents,” he told The Monterey County Herald, “always used to remind us, ‘You’re only 5 percent of the equation, so 5 percent of a celebrity isn’t too much to brag about.’”

_________ PETER STRUCK, 69, a former German defense minister and vehement opponent of the 2003 U.S.led invasion of Iraq, died Wednesday following a heart attack. His family said Mr. Struck, a plain-spoken politician who was a leading lawmaker for Germany’s center-left Social Democrats for almost three decades, died in a Berlin hospital. Mr. Struck served as Germany’s defense minister from 2002 to 2005. While an opponent of the Iraq War, he oversaw the early years of Germany’s military engagement in Afghanistan, famously

announcing that “German security is being defended in the Hindu Kush” mountains. Mr. Struck Since in 2009 2010, Mr. Struck had led the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, a major foundation affiliated with his party. A colorful personality, Mr. Struck often was pictured smoking a long-stemmed pipe and had a penchant for riding his motorcycle, boasting in a 2011 interview that he’d put more than 40,000 miles on it over three years. He was a lawmaker from 1980 to 2009, serving the Social Democrats for many years as chief parliamentary whip and caucus leader.

A3 Briefly: Nation Census: U.S. population is slowly growing WASHINGTON — After two centuries of boom and bust, America’s population growth may finally be leveling off. In all, the U.S. population is now increasing a bit faster, thanks to an improving economy, though not enough to lift growth above its lowest level since the Great Depression. The nation is getting older with its citizens less likely than before to be married and with women waiting longer to have children, if at all. Immigration from other countries also is on an upswing after years of sharp declines, but it may never return to the peak level of the early 2000s. New estimates released Thursday by the Census Bureau offer the latest snapshot of the U.S. population, which grew by 2.3 million, to 313.9 million people. That growth rate of 0.75 percent was higher than the 0.73 percent rate in 2011, ending five years of slowing growth. But the rate of growth is at historically low levels not seen since 1937, restrained by reduced childbirths.

Prosecutors allege she fabricated test results and tampered with drug evidence in testing substances for criminal cases. Judges have released about 200 defendants in the past few months and put their cases on hold. The state also is reviewing thousands of other cases possibly affected by Dookhan’s work.

Chris Christie. Booker’s announcement alters the landscape for both races, and for politics in Newark, the state’s largest city, where his term runs through June 2014. The Associated Press

House GOP plans vote on fiscal cliff ‘Plan B’ But hopes fade for pre-holiday accord with Democratic leaders THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — The Republican-controlled House pushed ahead Thursday with a bill to raise taxes on people earning more than $1 million a year as hopes faded for a pre-Christmas deal between President Barack Obama and Speaker John Boehner to avert the so-called “fiscal cliff.” Democratic leaders vowed to let the House measure die in the Senate without a vote — and urged Boehner to return to the negotiating table. As a grand bargain to avoid the fiscal cliff’s automatic tax hikes and spending cuts proved elusive, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said that lawmakers would return to the Capitol after the holidays to try again.

“The president and Boehner have to negotiate this, OK?” said Sen. C h a r l e s Schumer, D-N.Y. “We don’t need a vehicle. We need an Schumer agreement,” Schumer said. Across the Capitol, Boehner accused Obama and his fellow Democrats of doing nothing to prevent the so-called cliff — sweeping tax hikes and spending cuts that hit in January unless lawmakers head them off. But he also told reporters he would continue trying to strike a deal with the president. “Our country faces serious challenges,” said Boehner, R-Ohio.

“The president and I in our respective roles have a responsibility to work together to get them resolved. I expect that we’ll continue to work together.” House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., said the GOP has enough votes to pass the bill dubbed “Plan B” by Boehner, aimed at upping year-end pressure on Capitol Hill Democrats. “We, as Republicans, have taken concrete actions to avoid the fiscal cliff,” Cantor insisted.

President to veto The White House has said Obama would veto the measure. Spokesman Jay Carney called the GOP move a fruitless step. “Instead of taking the opportunity that was presented to them, to continue to negotiate what could be a very helpful large deal for the American people, the Republicans in the House have decided to run down an alley that has no exit while we all watch,” Carney said.

A rush on guns reported Armored backpacks for children also selling after school massacre THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SALT LAKE CITY — When Ken Larson’s 1-year-old son starts school in a few years, he’ll be carrying an armored backpack. After the Newtown, Conn., school shooting last week, Larson and his wife decided to buy him one just to be safe. Larson already has one that he takes when he goes to the movies. “It’s a no-brainer. My son’s life is invaluable,” said Larson, 41, of Denver. “If I can get him a backpack for $200 that makes him safer, I don’t even have to think about that.” A spike in gun sales is common after a mass shooting, but the lat-

est rampage has generated record sales in some states, particularly of assault weapons similar to the AR-15 rifle the gunman used in an attack on Sandy Hook Elementary School that killed 26 people, including 20 children.

Single-day record set Colorado set a single-day record for gun background-check requests the day after the shootings. Nevada saw more checks in the two days that followed than any weekend this year. Records also were set in Tennessee, California and Virginia, among others. Some gun shop owners stopped selling the remaining stock of

their assault weapons, anticipating only more interest and value after President Barack Obama on Wednesday instructed his administration to create concrete proposals to reduce gun violence. Robert Akers, a Rapid City, S.D., gun seller who specializes in military-style weapons, said the rush of customers had transformed his Rapid Fire Firearms store into a “madhouse” and that he’s turned off his phone. “The price is only going to go up higher,” he said. In Connecticut, six more funerals for slain children and a memorial service for a teacher was held. In New York, Cardinal Timothy Dolan told mourners at the funeral of 52-year-old Anne Marie Murphy that the teacher “brought together a community, a nation, a world, now awed by her own life and death.”

The subdued celebration revealed Thursday is a big cut from the 10 balls Obama attended four years ago. Planners said the austerity in festivities is a reflection of tough economic times and an effort to minimize the burden on law enforcement, security personnel and Washington, D.C., residents. Both balls are being planned at the Washington Convention Center on Monday, Jan. 21.

AN ADOPTIVE FATHER in Ohio who could spend the rest of his life in prison for raping three boys in his care pleaded guilty Thursday to another child rape charge and agreed to testify against a man he allegedly allowed to rape one of his adopted sons.

Under a plea agreement, prosecutors dropped five other charges. The Troy man was sentenced Monday to 60 years to life in prison. The Associated Press isn’t naming him to protect the children’s identities.

THE CELEBRATION of the cosmic dawn began with a fumbling of the sacred fire meant to honor today’s end of the Mayan long count calendar. Gabriel Lemus, the white-haired guardian of the flame, burned his finger. Still, Lemus, like about 1,000 other stargazers, crystal enthusiasts, yogis, sufis and swamis in a Merida, Mexico, convention center about an hour and a half from the Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza, was convinced that it was a good start to the “New Era” that he said began with the winter solstice at 3:12 a.m. today. “It is a cosmic dawn,” said Lemus. “We will recover the ability to communicate telepathically and levitate objects.”

RUSSIAN PRESIDENT VLADIMIR Putin distanced himself further than ever before from his longtime ally in Syria on Thursday, saying he understands Syria needs change and that he is not protecting its president. Putin, however, warned that efforts to unseat Bashar Assad could plunge Syria even deeper into violence. He insisted that Russia has not changed its stance and believes that only a negotiated settlement can end the civil war. Putin’s assessment came a week after Russia’s top envoy for Syria was quoted as saying Assad’s forces were losing control of the country.

PA court sets restitution in drunken-driving death Court ruling made before potential B.C. civil claim BY PAUL GOTTLIEB PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — A man serving five years at the Clallam Bay Corrections Center for the death of Darrell Campbell, 49, of British Columbia in an alcoholrelated vehicle crash must pay $6,412 in funeral expenses. Steven W. Boyd, 49, of Port Angeles had pleaded guilty in June to alcoholrelated vehicular homicide and two counts of vehicular assault in the August 2011 crash. The Thursday ruling by Clallam County Superior Court Judge Ken Williams in the 16-month-old case leaves Boyd awaiting a reportedly pending filing of a wrongful-death civil claim in a Canadian court. “In our civil claim, we anticipate making claim for significant losses incurred by our clients, including funeral and testamentary expenses, the present value of Darrell Campbell’s lost lifetime earnings and contributions to his dependents, and property damage,” attorney Greg Samuels of Cross Border Law LLP of Vancouver, B.C., said in a Clallam County Superior Court filing. Janice Campbell, the widow of Ahousaht First

Nation member Darrell Campbell, had sought $55,135 to cover expenses related to her husband’s death. They included the cost of traveling to Boyd’s court hearings at the courthouse in Port Angeles and for Campbell’s lost income and wages. They also included $26,045 in expenses related to Darrell Campbell’s pickup truck. Campbell was driving the vehicle when it was hit in the 8 a.m. crash on state Highway 112. He was killed and his 18-year-old niece and 57-year-old brother seriously injured when Boyd crossed the centerline in his SUV 5 miles west of Port Angeles.

Legal research County Deputy Prosecuting Attorney John Troberg had said his legal research supported payment of $6,412 but not a higher amount. Pat John of Port Angeles, an Ahousaht First Nation member representing the family, thanked Williams during a brief statement in court. “Mr. Boyd has been sentenced, and the family has closure from this accident,” he said.


Stephen W. Boyd, 49, is serving five years in the drunken-driving death of Darrell Campbell in 2011. Boyd participated from prison by telephone. “My only concern is that I am currently incarcerated and have no means of making any payments at all,” he said. Boyd had a 0.12 percent blood-alcohol level from a blood sample taken 95 minutes after the 8 a.m. crash and a 0.079 percent level about two hours after the crash, according to the State Patrol. The legal limit in Washington is 0.08 percent.

Objects to expenses Alex Stalker of Clallam Public Defender, representing Boyd, objected to funeral expenses approved by Wil-

liams, which included $1,000 in flower expenses, $600 in funeral pamphlets and $150 for photos. That was “making the funeral into a social occasion,” Stalker said. “Boyd will be unemployed,” he added. “Given his financial circumstances, I don’t think it’s appropriate to impose extra fees.” Responded Troberg: “Funerals are social occasions.” He said he was not seeking medical expenses incurred by Campbell’s brother, Angus Campbell, and niece, Sophie Campbell, estimating they “must have been in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.” In a later telephone interview, John confirmed Troberg’s estimate. Angus Campbell suffered a broken femur, and Sophie Campbell had her spleen removed immediately after the accident, John said. Troberg said they were hospitalized and treated for weeks. Restitution for their medical care may be addressed by the state Attorney General’s Office, Troberg said. In her request for restitution, Janice Campbell said the family was having trouble paying bills because of expenses incurred after her husband’s death. “Darrell Campbell was very intelligent and enjoyed working for Ahousaht fisheries,” she said. “He is greatly going to be missed.”


PORT ANGELES — A multi-agency response team trekked to a remote part of Olympic National Park on Thursday to get a firsthand look at a beached dock believed to be wreckage from the Japanese tsunami of 2011. The nine-member crew planned to reach the dock at low tide at about 12:30 p.m. to begin the initial assessment. The crew was out of cellphone range and faced a possible 2½-hour hike out of the wilderness. “We’re not anticipating them getting out until 5 [p.m.] or 6 p.m.,” park spokeswoman Barb Maynes said. The crew could not be interviewed until after press time. Safety concerns from high winds and heavy surf prevented the federal, state and tribal agencies from reaching the dock Wednesday. A Coast Guard helicopter crew spotted the dock Tuesday at the high tide line in an extremely remote area about halfway between Hoh Head and Toleak Point south of LaPush. The National Park Service closed the wilderness coast between Hoh Head and Toleak Point to all public entry.

“Our primary concerns are invasive species and making sure everybody is safe in this scenario,” Maynes said. The response team includes state Fish and Wildlife officials, coastal biologists, ecologists, marine debris experts, a park ranger and a contractor who removed the Japanese dock that washed ashore near Newport, Ore., in June.

Invasive species “We’re extremely grateful for the support and expertise of our federal and Washington state partners,” Olympic National Park Superintendent Sarah Creachbaum said in a statement. “As we move forward as a team, our first concerns will be safety in this rugged stretch of coastline and assessment and containment of any invasive species.” Scientists planned to evaluate the dock “for any potential invasive aquatic species that may have ‘hitchhiked’ while it was drifting in the ocean and to develop a response,” according to a state Department of Ecology statement.

Mudslides close 101 in Brinnon

Doctor unable to ID corpse in Forks fire



BRINNON — U.S. Highway 101 remained closed in both directions at Brinnon and points south Thursday as crews scrambled to clear fallen trees and mudslides along the Hood Canal. The state Department of Transportation closed a 41-mile stretch of the highway between Brinnon and state Highway 3 near Shelton after a snowstorm Wednesday evening. “It was just too unsafe for us to continue to clear the roads,” Transportation spokeswoman Claudia Bingham Baker said. Transportation officials reopened the section between Shelton and Hoodsport on Thursday. It was unknown when the 25-mile stretch that connects Brinnon in southeast Jefferson County to Mason County would be passable. “We’re just working as hard as we can to get it open,” Bingham Baker said. “It’s looking very promising, and we have a lot crews working on it. I don’t think it will be a matter of days.” Transportation crews were working with the Mason County Public Utility District and maintenance crews from around Western Washington to remove the trees and clear two mudslides that covered the roadway. One of the mudslides had been cleared by noon Thursday. Meanwhile, a 5-mile section of state Highway 106 at Purdy Cutoff Road between Shelton and Hood Canal remained closed for storm-related damage. “The plan is to clear 101 first as the primary highway in area,” Bingham Baker said.

FORKS — A doctor was unable during an autopsy Thursday to identify a man found dead in a trailer that burned early Wednesday morning on Palmer Road off Calawah Way, authorities said. “There’s not enough for a doctor to ID to sign a death certificate, so that means there’s no ID yet,” Undersheriff Ron Peregrin said Thursday while the autopsy was being conducted in Port Angeles. The identity of the body will be determined by a DNA test or possible comparison of fingerprints, Peregrin said. Preliminary results of an investigation into the fire have revealed nothing suspicious about the blaze. “At that initial blush, it appears not as a result of any criminal activity,” Peregrin said. “It’s an old place with wiring and whatever, and it looks like it may have been something associated with that.

OPNET: Smell CONTINUED FROM A1 The matter would be tried in Jefferson County because the grow operation in question was located in Discovery Bay. Haas’ motion asked the court to dismiss all charges and suppress all evidence allegedly illegally obtained — which includes 93 marijuana plants — and includes a contention that law enforcement recklessly executed the search warrant. Haas said any decision also would be applied to Tim Fager, a Discovery Bay area resident who is represented by Jim Dixon of Seattle, since the cases have been joined. Haas claims that OPNET detectives planted evidence, trespassed and used a convicted sex offender as a paid informant to net his client on drug charges. Clallam County Deputy Prosecutor Lewis Schrawyer said OPNET, which is made up of law enforcement officers from across the North Olympic Peninsula, acted within its charter. In August, Schrawyer told the Peninsula Daily News that four deputies testified that they picked up at least 11 “nose hits” from the property, and “we have no proof that there was a legal marijuana cooperative.” A “nose hit,” according to

aas’ motion asked the court to dismiss all charges and suppress all evidence allegedly illegally obtained and includes a contention that law enforcement recklessly executed the search warrant.


Schrawyer, results from the distinctive smell of marijuana growing operations that can be discerned by a trained narcotics detective. Haas said testimony presented during the hearing stated that the odor of marijuana in a closed grow operation can be detected from 30 or 40 feet but was not possible from the 100yard distance from which OPNET claims to have been when detecting the smell. While the arrest precedes his tenure with OPNET, Viada said the agency acted appropriately. “The American system of justice has due process, and this ruling is only one step in the process,” Viada said. “This case is still open, and it will continue.”

Inmate hospitalized after Taser is used THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

RICHLAND — A Kennewick jail inmate who reportedly stopped breathing shortly after being shocked with a Taser remains hospitalized in critical condition.

He reportedly struggled with officers and bit them, then was zapped

Elk: Crossings relatively rare now CONTINUED FROM A1 “They come out of the woods, and in a few steps, and they’re on the road,” Cullinan said. The herd often stays near the road for a few days before making the crossing, he said, and added that he thought the herd would make their move in the dark, either Thursday night, early this morning, or tonight. However, they can cross at any time. Once common, elk crossings have become relatively rare, Cullinan said. The last major herd crossing was during daylight hours, he added. Lorraine Shore, Clallam County Sheriff’s Office community policing coordinator, said deputies have been made aware of the situation and planned to shut down the road when the big animals — which include adult cows weighing between 700 and 800 pounds — decide the time is right. The possible road closure was announced by the Sheriff’s Office on Thursday on Nixle, an email and text message notification system used by law enforcement agencies to alert residents of hazards. Roosevelt Elk, the largest elk in North America, are much larger than the typical 125-pound white tail doe. If a car hits an elk in the

Why the elk migrated to the valley is a mystery to wildlife biologists, Cullinan added, but speculated that their predators — mountain lions and bear — are less likely to be a threat near human habitation, and the lower elevations and farmland provide a higher quality food source.

Herd thinned The herd, which once boasted 125 individuals, has been thinned in response to complaints from Sequim-area farmers and residents, both by hunting and by capture and relocation programs. This year, Cullinan has recorded 13 elk from the herd killed through permitted hunting, and several natural deaths, including two calves and a cow. It has been several years since an elk was killed crossing Highway 101, partly due to the flashing light that alerts drivers, and partly because they aren’t crossing the road as often as they once did, Cullinan said.

Land trust finalizes agreement 75 acres along creek in Blyn now protected PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

BLYN — The North Olympic Land Trust and landowner Phil Schenck have finalized an agreement that conserves 75 acres along Jimmycomelately Creek in Blyn. The land, which includes a 1-mile stretch of the creek that is considered prime salmon habitat, is now permanently protected with a conservation easement that is immediately adjacent to protected state, federal and tribal lands. The easement means the lower 2 miles of the creek have now been conserved by local landowners.

Spawning habitat The conservation easement protects spawning habitat for local salmon, specifically endangered summer chum, and Puget Sound steelhead trout, another endangered species. According to the regional Summer Chum Salmon Recovery Plan, “protection, restoration and maintenance of the Jimmycomelately watershed is of paramount

importance. “The lower river sections must be restored and protected to effect and ensure recovery of the Strait [summer chum] population.” In 1999, chum salmon in the creek were on the verge of extinction, with only seven adults returning to spawn. By 2010, 4,207 spawners returned following restoration efforts led by the Jamestown S’Klallam tribe with a host of other agencies and organizations near the mouth of the creek. “We are thrilled to collaborate on salmon recovery efforts along Jimmycomelately Creek,” said Tom Sanford, executive director of the land trust. “Continued restoration of salmon is critical to the economic and ecological future of the North Olympic Peninsula.” Scott Chitwood, natural resource director for the Jamestown S’Klallam tribe, said: “We expect this action will greatly aid in the recovery of the Jimmycomelately population of summer chum and steelhead.”

Early winter bird-migration cruise slated PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT TOWNSEND — The Port Townsend Marine Science Center plans an early winter bird-migration cruise on New Year’s Eve. The three-hour cruise will leave at 1 p.m. from Port Townsend’s Point Hudson Marina on Monday, Dec. 31. Cruises are aboard an enclosed, heated motoryacht operated by Puget Sound Express.

Wonder drug of the millennia Want to reduce health care costs? Push people to take aspirin BY DAVID B. AGUS THE INEXORABLE RISE in health care spending, as all of us know, is a problem. But what’s truly infuriating, as we watch America’s medical bill soar, is that our conversation has focused almost exclusively on how to pay for that care, not on reducing our need for it. In the endless debate about “health care reform,” few have zeroed in on the practical actions we should be taking now to make Americans healthier. An exception is New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, who is setting new standards Dr. Agus that we would do well to adopt as a nation. In the past several years, he’s changed the city’s health code to mandate restrictions on sodas and trans fats — products that, when consumed over the long term, harm people. These new rules will undoubtedly improve New Yorkers’ health in years to come.


UCH BOLD MOVES prompt a provocative question: When does regulating a person’s habits in the name of good health become our moral and social duty? The answer, I suggest, is a two-parter: ■ First, when the scientific data clearly and overwhelmingly demonstrate that one behavior or another can substantially reduce — or, conversely, raise — a person’s risk of disease. ■ Second, when all of us are stuck paying for one another’s medical bills (which is what we do now, by way of Medicare, Medicaid and other taxpayerfinanced health care programs). In such cases, encouraging a healthy behavior, or discouraging an unhealthy one, ought to be a matter of public policy — which is why, for instance, we insist on

For some men over the age of 45 and women over 55, the risks of taking aspirin outweigh any benefits — and patients should talk with their doctors before taking any medication, including something as familiar as aspirin. But with such caveats in place, it still ought to be possible to encourage aspirin’s use in those for whom the potential benefits would be obvious and the risks minimal. Just as we discourage smoking through advertising campaigns, shouldn’t we suggest that middle-aged Americans speak to their doctors about aspirin? Perhaps pharmacists or even health insurance companies should be enlisted to help spread the word about this diseaseprevention drug?


HE RIGHT POLICY will have to be hammered out, of course. But if we’re going to address the country’s sky-high medical bill, we’re going to have to address the need for Americans to be active in protecting their own health. Everyone may want the right to use tobacco products and engage in other behaviors that are unequivocally linked with disease — or have the right not to wear a seat belt and refrain from other actions that may protect their well-being. But, if so, should society have the obligation to cover the costs of the consequences? As the former Supreme Court justice Potter Stewart once said, “There is a big difference between what we have the right to do and what is right to do.” Health care reform should, at long last, focus on the latter.

Where next?

We see the signs of grieving, and rightly so, on a national level over the tragic and evil shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The deaths of these innocents should shock and horrify us.

Can it happen here? The recent slaughter of children in Connecticut makes me wonder if that could happen here. I have walked into several different schools in Jefferson County in the

past few years with no obvious scrutiny. How many assault weapons do we have in this county? How many crazies want to kill themselves and others at the same time? I grew up with guns and learned to shoot well before I learned to drive. I probably know 100 people who own guns of various kinds. None of these people, mostly relatives, has ever shot anyone, except my little sister who shot herself in the elbow while cleaning

an “unloaded” pistol. Despite the belief that people, not guns, are the problem, I feel strongly that there are too many nuts around who can get guns and want to make headlines so they will be remembered. They accomplish this by killing innocents before committing suicide. I hope our local legislators will support gun control legislation, sure to be proposed, that makes AK-47s and all machine gun-type weapons illegal in the U.S.

Sens. [Patty] Murray and [Maria] Cantwell and Rep.-elect [Derek] Kilmer must stand up to the powerful gun lobby and take this small step toward public safety by controlling the market in the most deadly of available weapons. Also, I hope news media will stop publishing the name of these crazies so they will know that such horrible actions will not get them publicity in death. Jenifer A.T. Taylor, Port Townsend

Dear Santa: This year for Christmas, would you please give me just one day of peace on Earth, one day without murder, one day where no one yells at me or breaks my heart, one day where no one makes me feel unloved and useless. And Santa, if enough people pray with me, could you please make those days separate until we have a string of enough days that people can make it a habit? If you do this, I for one promise never to need another gift I won’t use, or something my family and friends have to spend money on. All I want is peace and love throughout the world with people who care about one another regardless of anything, because love is and should always be unconditional. Teresa Cage, Port Angeles

Let’s get fiscal about cliff jargon THE END OF the world never comes at a convenient time. It never comes, for instance, when you’re sitting in front of a blank computer screen trying to think of a column. But the end is nigh, accordMaureen ing to ancient Mayans and Dowd Washington mandarins. We have reached the quivering moment of truth that Jon Stewart calls “Cliffpocalypsemageddonacaust.” However the Mayan prediction and the “fiscal cliff” work out, I hope we are talking about the end of talking about the end. It’s tedious to always be suspended in midair, like Wile E. Coyote or Thelma and Louise. The attempts by some to continually whirl the whole American population into a state of apocalyptic excitement are exhausting. There’s a new American trend in hysteria. Everything now is in italics, punctuated by exclamation points!!! As entertaining as Carrie Mathison’s bouts of hysteria have been in “Homeland,” stirring up hysteria in real life, whether to draw clicks, eyeballs or votes, is not a good idea. Cliff dwellers in our society might think that facing the guillotine focuses the mind. But the cliff metaphor is so overused it makes me want to walk off one. Don’t even mention Cliff Clavin, Cliff Huxtable, Cliff Robertson, Jimmy Cliff or Heathcliff (either on the moors, in Cliffs Notes or in the funny papers.) If your Christmas presents

don’t come from Amazon in time, you’re going over the gift cliff. If your boyfriend bails, you’re going over the romance cliff. If he comes back, you could be going over the marriage cliff. Journalists now have to add an extra coup de grace (“Fiscal cliff crash”) or double metaphor (“Clock is ticking for fiscal cliff”) or raffish cartoons to juice things up. The new cover of The Economist features Uncle Sam, waving a Jack Daniel’s bottle, with the Statue of Liberty, wearing cool shades and smoking a doobie, plunging into the Grand Canyon in a red, white and blue Thunderbird with the license plate “Debt 1.” Other metaphors have been suggested: “fiscal obstacle course,” “debt bomb,” “austerity bomb.” But we’re stuck in the year of cliffian thinking. There are cliffians, who predict dire consequences if a deal is not reached, and anti-cliffians. But no matter if you’re into Keynes, Krugmania or Ayn Ryanism, looking at things as a cliff is not the most constructive way to live. Scaring people is generally not a good way to get people to understand things. Especially in emergencies, grave crises like a nuclear threat or a terrorist attack, you need calm people who don’t think the world is going to end. Lincoln wasn’t cliffy. As the new Steven Spielberg movie shows, Lincoln had a goal and pursued it methodically through various means, some shady. He wasn’t interested in hysteria. It had no political use for him. The BBC examined the etymology of the phrase of the moment. The lexicographer Ben Zimmer discovered that an 1893 editorial in the Chicago Tribune

warned: “The free silver shriekers are striving to tumble the United States over the same fiscal precipice.” Zimmer traced the first use of “fiscal cliff” to the property section of The New York Times in 1957, in an article about people overextending their finances to buy their first home. Ben Bernanke imprinted the term on the public consciousness last February, pointing ominously toward Jan. 1. But Derek Thompson, the business editor at The Atlantic, told the BBC that if you had to go topographical, a slope or a hill was more accurate. “You talk about a cliff, it’s extremely sudden and the second you step off the edge you plunge to your death,” he said, adding: “We’re not going to fall off anything.” Language is important, he said, because it can provoke a panicky deal rather than a smart deal. He suggested that a more apt metaphor might be dieting after bingeing, as in “fiscal fast.” “There will be a short, sharp recession in early to middle of next year, which is more like falling on your face after fasting too vigorously, and then the economy is going to grow,” he said. The really bad news is that, even if we survive this abyss, there are more coming, with the debt ceiling cliff and the spending bill cliff dead ahead. Once you start with the cliffs, you can fall into cliffinity — with endless cliff riffs on the horizon. Cliff talk is not cool talk.

Electronic records of Obamacare HERE’S MORE EVIDENCE that government cures are inevitably worse than the diseases they seek to wipe out. Buried in the trillion-dollar stimulus law of 2009 was an electronic medical records “incentive” program. Like most of Michelle President Barack Malkin Obama’s health care rules, this top-down electronic recordsharing scheme is a big fat bust. Oversight is lax. Cronyism is rife. The jobkilling and privacy-undermining consequences have only just begun. The program was originally sold as a cost-saving measure. In theory, modernizing recordcollection is a good idea, and many private health-care providers have already made the change. But as with many government “incentive” programs, the electronic medical records bribe is a tax-subsidized, one-size-fits-all mandate. This one pressures healthcare professionals and hospitals across the country into radically federalizing their patient data and opening up medical information to untold abuse. Penalties kick in for any provider that hasn’t switched over by 2014. So, what’s it to you? Well, $4 billion has already gone out to 82,535 professionals and 1,474 hospitals, and a total of $6 billion will be doled out by 2016. But the feds’ reckless profligacy, neglect and favoritism have done more harm than good. Don’t take my word for it. A recent report released by the Department of Health and Human Services inspector general acknowledged that the incentive system is “vulnerable to paying incentives to professionals

and hospitals that do not fully meet” the program’s qualityassurance requirements. The federal health bureaucracy “has not implemented strong prepayment safeguards, and its ability to safeguard incentive payments postpayment is also limited,” the inspector general concluded. Translation: No one is actually verifying whether the transition from paper to electronic is improving patient outcomes and health services. No one is actually guarding against GIGO (garbage in, garbage out). No one is checking whether recipients of the electronic medical records incentives are receiving money redundantly (e.g., raking in payments when they’ve already converted to electronic records). No one is actually protecting private data from fraud, abuse or exploitation. Little is being done to recoup ill-gotten payments. In any case, such “pay and chase” policing after the fact is a crummy way to run government in lean times — or in fat times, for that matter. As for the claim that the electronic records conversion will reduce paperwork, many doctors say the reality is just the opposite. In Greensboro, N.C., Dr. Richard Aronson told the local Fox TV station that the mandate doubled the amount of paperwork in his private practice. Some medical professionals are now warning that the dangerous phenomenon of “distracted doctoring” is on the rise as a result of data-driven imperatives that direct health-care providers’ attention away from their patients and onto their screens and hand-held devices. You know who is benefiting from the initiative? Put on your shocked faces: Obama donors and cronies. Billionaire Judith Faulkner, Obama’s medical information czar and a major Democratic con-

tributor, just happens to be the founder and CEO of Epic Systems — a medical software company that stores nearly 40 percent of the U.S. population’s health data. Another billion-dollar patientrecord database grant program has doled out money to the University of Chicago Medical Center (where first lady Michelle Obama and senior adviser Valerie Jarrett both served in highpaid positions). As I’ve previously reported, these administration grants circumvent any and all congressional deliberation as part of Team Obama’s election-year “We Can’t Wait” initiatives. Even as the White House touted the move toward gee-whiz 21st century electronic databases, health-care professionals in the know have debunked that claim, too. Companies like Faulkner’s, which lobbied loudest for the mandates and “incentives,” represent traditional hard drivedependent software firms that are already dated. As Athenahealth Chairman and CEO Jonathan Bush, who advocates cloud-computing alternatives, put it: The Obama electronic records mandate is “healthcare information technology’s version of cash-for-clunkers.” Then there’s the still-growing and untold number of doctors nationwide who are closing up shop or limiting their practices and converting to “concierge care” to escape this and myriad other Obamacare intrusions. My own primary care physician in Colorado Springs quit her regular practice and converted to “concierge care” because of the electronic medical records imposition. More paperwork. More waste. Less accountability. Less care. Government malpractice at work.

Machinery is in place next to the Alaskan Way Viaduct, which runs through downtown Seattle and eventually will be demolished. At right, a rendering shows the planned new sea wall on the Seattle waterfront.

Seattle waterfront to get face-lift New tunnel, sea wall just beginning of construction BY KIRK JOHNSON THE NEW YORK TIMES

SEATTLE — This city’s urban shoreline on Puget Sound was never built with photo-snapping tourists in mind or technology entrepreneurs jogging in the rain. In decades past, stretching back to the big-timberand-fish era of the 1800s, the waterfront was a place of gaff hooks, warehouses and stink. But as brawny old Seattle faded, the hard parts of its industrial past — a shadow-casting highway viaduct, a crumbling sea wall — remained behind like bleached fossils even as the modern gloss of restaurants, hotels and apartment towers moved in. Now, a ballet of giant, tightly coordinated engineering works — $4.5 billion worth of building up, tearing down and digging under on the water’s edge — is about to change the city’s storied old coast all

over again starting next year. Each of the pieces is major in its own right: a 1.8mile big-bore tunnel 200 feet below grade at its deepest, an earthquake-conscious sea wall buttressing the piers and an altered city grid that will come with a demolition of the old viaduct. Collectively, they add up to a city on the remake, with a waterfront transformation that will be seismic and aesthetic all at once, not to mention messy and cacophonous.

$290 million bond Hurricane Sandy gets partial credit, city officials said, for bolstering local acceptance of a plan that will mean periodic disruption of commercial and transportation rhythms for at least three years to come. Voters in Seattle cast their ballots last month for a $290 million bond measure to pay for replacement

of the most eroded and threatened section of the sea wall — a linchpin of the waterfront package — even as images of East Coast devastation and cleanup filled the news. The measure, which included a 30-year property tax increase to pay for the bonds, passed with 77 percent voter approval. “It didn’t hurt to have people reminded of nature,” said Jennifer Wieland, a transportation planner at the Seattle Department of Transportation. Local businesses, meanwhile, are bracing for a season of stress, as transportation to and through downtown gets shifted and pummeled. “Logistics-wise, I’m glad I’m not in charge,” said Andy Townsend, who comanages the Bicycle Repair Shop, a store catering mainly to bike commuters in a former warehouse a block from the water, underneath the 1950s-vintage viaduct highway. Townsend, who opened the business here with a partner last year, said he thought they would survive the construction window. His bigger fear, he said,

is the rents that could rise on a more boutique-ish waterfront. The scope and scale of the work can be partly glimpsed through its numbers: ■ 20,000. The number of many old-growth Pacific Northwest trees that engineers estimate were driven down into the soil to build the original sea wall from around World War I through the mid-1930s. Some timbers are still intact and sturdy; others will have to be extracted like wisdom teeth. ■ 57.5. The diameter, in feet, of the tunnel-boring machine that will grind under downtown — the biggest such device, by about 7 feet, ever constructed. Picture a grinding wheel about the size of a five-story brownstone. ■ 17. Days targeted for a race-the-clock closing of the six-lane viaduct highway when the tunnel that replaces it goes live for traffic, currently scheduled for mid-December 2015. ■ 900. Monitoring devices on buildings and under streets and sidewalks above the tunnel route, as sentinels for ground settlement or structural trouble during and after tunneling.

Tourist draw City and state officials are hoping the work itself becomes a tourist draw for a certain kind of visitor whose jaw drops at the mighty works of engineers. Construction-inspired art projects and educational or viewing portals could create what Wieland at the city Transportation Department called “the Construction Experience.” Preparations are already under way for a kind of


inaugural ceremony around the giant boring machine, which is scheduled to arrive in March in 41 pieces on a specialty cargo ship from a construction site in Japan. It will be assembled in a launching pit about the size of a football field at the tunnel’s southern end. “I can see it in my mind, just coming in on the ship,” said Matthew D. Preedy, an engineer and manager at the state’s Department of Transportation who is overseeing the tunnel and viaduct project. He said he pictured the cargo vessel being greeted by an array of fireboat water cannons shooting in the harbor. “It’s going to be a great show,” he said. Marine scientists who have been working on designs for the sea wall said the suite of habitat structures under consideration — all intended to create a friendlier, safer transit route for juvenile salmon born in rivers south of Seattle and heading north — also could become a kind of eco-tourism draw as construction unfolds, and afterward.

Light tubes Building on similar ideas from places like Vancouver, B.C., and Sydney Harbor in Australia, plans include varied textures on the surface of the sea wall facing Puget Sound, to shelflike structures on which tiny fish can pause for feeding or shelter, to light tubes from the surface that could mimic conditions in the shallow shore waters that the salmon would swim through in nature, if they could. “This is really quite a unique application of eco-

something better to report after they finish their work in spring 2013. “Steady progress requires forward movement. Slowing the pace of funding cuts is necessary, but it does not equate to forward progress,” wrote Chief Justice Barbara Madsen in the order filed Thursday. In January, the Supreme Court ruled the state isn’t meeting its constitutional obligation to amply pay for basic education.

The underwater lightenhancement efforts alone, which Cordell has been studying and testing for the past few years, could make waves in marine habitat enhancement work. “It’s never been done at this scale,” he said. Some owners and managers of tourist-related businesses have fretted that the aboveground construction season, currently September to May each year, could impinge too much on Seattle’s high season for summer visitors. Other waterfront workers say the concrete and steel viaduct itself, which engineers have said could collapse in a strong earthquake, has cast a shadow so long on the area that the added light, in a city known for its seasonal gloom, could be startling. “I’ll miss the viaduct,” said Emily Sands, a sales clerk at a waterfront shop called Exclusively Washington, which sells Seattle mugs, cedar fish-cooking planks and artwork showing people grinning up into the rain without umbrellas. “I know it’s ugly and loud, and it’s not safe if there’s an earthquake,” she said. “I know it has to go.” Preedy at the Department of Transportation said that managing local expectations, about what could change or not, and how much disruption will ensue before the dust finally settles, comes with his job at the helm. “There’s a potential for a lot of angst,” he said.




In the past decade, education spending has gone from close to 50 percent to just above 40 percent of the state budget, despite the fact that some education spending is protected by the constitution. State lawmakers have in recent years been dealing with large budget deficits, and earlier this year, they cut $300 million in state funding. The Supreme Court has given the Legislature until 2018 to fix the problem, but it wants to see yearly reports that “demonstrate steady progress.”

McKenna said he plans to volunteer for a GOP presidential candidate who is willing to lead the rebranding, mentioning potential hopefuls like New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.

McKenna said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too early to assess whether he might run for governor again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to take a break from public service,â&#x20AC;? he said.

park at the visitor parking lot and walk around the area. Another way to enjoy the view is to take the walking tunnel under 101 to the east side, where a walking trail allows viewing of the lights from different vantage points, with Sequim Bay as a backdrop.

Port Angeles In Port Angeles, those who want to see homes and businesses dressed in lights can drive around on their own â&#x20AC;&#x201D; seeing both private homes and city decorations downtown around the well-lighted city tree at Conrad Dyar Memorial Fountain â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or leave the driving to All Points Charters & Tours. The service, operated by Willy Nelson, offers a nightly two-hour tour of Christmas lights every evening through Dec. 28, except Christmas Day, with two such tours Christmas Eve. Tours begin from the Safeway parking lot at Third and Lincoln streets at 6:30 each evening except Christmas Eve, when tours will begin at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. Fares are $7.50 for adults, $3.75 for children 6 to 12 and free for children younger than 6.

From Forks to Port Angeles to Sequim, Blyn and East Jefferson County, residents and business owners have dressed up for the holidays. Families will want to pile into their cars and explore. Here are a few recommendations: The biggest light show on the Peninsula is the glitter of some 1.5 million lights along both sides of U.S. Highway 101 at Blyn, where the Jamestown Sâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Klallam tribe has dipped the 7 Cedars Casino, tribal offices, Longhouse Market and fire station in electric brilliance. The annual display is a way to give back to the community, said Jerry Allen, CEO of 7 Cedars Casino and other resort property. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell you the number of letters and phone calls we get, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rewarding,â&#x20AC;? Allen said. A tribal elder from California, for instance, said the display was â&#x20AC;&#x153;better than Dollywood,â&#x20AC;? Allen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many of our tribal citizens enjoy it as well as other members of the community.â&#x20AC;? To view the lights at leisure, pull over at the tribeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Blyn rest stop on Highway 101 between Sequim and Port Townsend, or turn off 101 onto Old Blyn Highway fronting the tribal center,

Tom Brotherton, an organizer of the Quilcene Conversations decorating contest, referred to it when describing the decorations on a drive-through Christmas display in Quilcene created on the Josephine Campbell building owned by Chuck Thrasher, the Quilcene Habitat for Humanity Store, The Plaid Pepper and the Brett and Ashley Hoffman residence at 294955 U.S. Highway 101. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really over the top,â&#x20AC;? Brotherton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost as good as Whitney Gardens in Brinnon.â&#x20AC;? The drive-through is open every day from 4:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. through Jan. 1, according to the North Hood Canal Chamber of Commerce website at http://tinyurl. com/bt432vj. Drivers enter just past the Habitat driveway and end at The Plaid Pepper, where cocoa, cider and cookies are available for purchase on the weekends, including Fridays, the chamber said, adding that proceeds will benefit local charities. Probably 50,0000 lights glow in the display, according to Ann Ricker of Quilcene, an artist who served as one of the judges in the Quilcene Conversations

Nature writer to share stories at PA Library BY DIANE URBANI DE LA PAZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201D; When asked how he deals with the blues, hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how Robert Michael Pyle, author of 17 books about bugs, slugs and Bigfootâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s woods, responds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I do get to feeling stale, sleepy or unhooked from what I am writing, I go outdoors. A walk along Grayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s River, or even through our own small woods to the brook and back, is guaranteed to pep me up and remind me why I do this,â&#x20AC;? Pyle said in an interview this week. In the final Port Book and News presentation until next March, Pyle will give a reading of his latest essay collection, The Tangled Bank: Writings from Orion. The event is tonight at 7 p.m. in the Raymond Carver Room at the Port Angeles Library 2210 S.

Pyle, who moves through the natural world like a trout through a pool, offers his reflections on each experience. The essays first ran in Orion magazine, while the title comes from The Origin

Pyle is a road-tripper â&#x20AC;&#x201D; heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s followed monarch butterflies across the continent â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but he revels in the rich soil of home, too.

He lives in Grayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s River in southwesternmost Washington now but has plenty of experience with the North Olympic Peninsula.

Research, readings Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done butterfly research on Hurricane Ridge, taught at the Olympic Park Institute on Lake Crescent and given many readings in Port Angeles.

He hails Port Book and News owners Alan and Cindy Turner for hosting literary readings throughout the year; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re â&#x20AC;&#x153;the envy of many larger, big-city stores.â&#x20AC;? Pyle and his wife, Thea, â&#x20AC;&#x153;never fail to have a memorable time in Port Angeles, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always eager to see who comes out for the reading. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is not so terribly far to come; whether via the coastal road or Hood Canal, it is a beautiful dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s journey,â&#x20AC;? Pyle added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can pick up some fresh oysters along the way and maybe spot the sea otters at Kalaloch.â&#x20AC;? With the Tangled Bank essay â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of Mice and Monarchs,â&#x20AC;? Pyle writes: â&#x20AC;&#x153;When people ask me how one becomes a naturalist, I say that being open to whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s out there is at least as important as knowing what is out there.â&#x20AC;? He added to this in the interview, saying that he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t separate people from the rest of nature. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To do so is a very dangerous notion, for it gives our species license to treat all the rest as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the other,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t usually work out too well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is our co-evolution with everything else that really grabs me most and how we might or might not adapt to get along in this beautiful, volatile world.â&#x20AC;?

More shrimp in 2013

Ridge report Hurricane Ridge is ready for skiiers and snowboarders. The rope lifts are ready and there’s plenty of snow — in fact there’s too much of the white stuff. Last weekend was supposed to be the season opener at the Ridge, but the road was only opened for a few hours, according to Frank Crippen, the owner of North by Northwest Surf Co. (360-452-5144) in Port Angeles. The ski area at the Ridge is scheduled to be open a few extra days for the holidays — weather permitting, of course. It will be open today through Sunday, instead of the usual Saturday to Sunday schedule. Next week, the ski area will be open Friday, Dec. 28 through Tuesday, Jan. 1. This all depends on the conditions of the road that leads up to Hurricane Ridge. Road and weather condition updates are available on the Olympic National Park website (www.nps. gov/olym) or by calling the park’s Road and Weather Hotline at 360565-3131. You can also obtain road condition updates on Twitter at @HRWinterAccess.

Riders to battle Sequim for Axe PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — High school wrestling fans are in for a pre-Christmas treat as the Port Angeles Roughriders host their eighth-annual Olympic Shootout team tournament Saturday. Also called The Battle for the Axe, the tourney will feature eight teams fighting in a dual-meet format for the right to display the Axe trophy for a year.

Wrestling This year’s tourney will feature three North Olympic Peninsula teams and several state placers. Port Angeles rival Sequim and 1A powerhouse Forks will join the host Roughriders for a strong area flavor. “This year may be the most competitive Battle for the Axe yet with the quality of the teams from top to bottom in attendance,” Port Angeles coach Erik Gonzalez said. “Many returning state

placers will be in action with a competitive balance between the teams. All in all, it will be quite a battle.” The tourney also will feature 3A power Bainbridge, 2A schools Bremerton and River Ridge, and another 1A powerhouse in Eatonville. The Riders and Wolves are both 2A schools. The eighth squad will be made up of a JV dream team. Also, a JV round-robin tourney will run between varsity rounds so that all wrestlers will get a chance to compete in this final tournament before holiday break starting

next week. The eight teams will be split into two pools of four followed by a crossover round to determine placement. Awards will go to the most outstanding wrestler and the top three teams. The Riders are a two-time defending champion. “We’re hoping to win it for a third year in a row,” Gonzalez said. The Riders also won the Axe the first year and will be going after their fourth overall team championship. TURN



Bruins outlast Loggers Clallam Bay wins 47-46 PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

CLALLAM BAY — Kelly Gregory swished in 18 points to spark Clallam Bay to a nonleague boys basketball victory over rival Crescent. A 3-point shot by Crescent in the final seconds made it a onepoint game but the Bruins held on for the 47-46 win Wednesday night. “It was a good game and it was pretty evenly matched,” Clallam Bay coach Kelly Gregory said. The Bruins, now 1-4 on the year, led by four to five points most of the game before giving up the long-range bomb with about 2.5 seconds left. Both coaches used the game as a tune-up for the start of the North Olympic League season after the holidays. “We both played everybody on our teams,” Gregory said. “It was a good warm-up game to see where we’re at.” Clallam Bay had mostly balanced scoring with Drew Goplen-Dean and Kevin Hess scoring eight points each to go with Kelly Gregory’s 18. Crescent’s Derek Findley scorched the nets for 25 points to lead everybody. Teammate Gene Peppard added nine. The Bruins had a strong defensive presence with GoplenDean and Matt Mohr hauling down eight rebounds each and Hess adding six boards.

Green Bay’s Tramon Williams (38), Charles Woodson (21), Seattle’s Charly Martin (14), and Green Bay’s M.D. Jennings, all go up for a pass that Seattle’s Golden Tate, helmet at far right, comes up with for the touchdown in the final seconds on Sept. 24 in Seattle. This score later was called the Inaccurate Reception when the NFL decided it shouldn’t have been a TD.

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Pay up, Seahawks. The Green Bay Packers have put the Inaccurate Reception behind them, and they’ve done their best not to begrudge Seattle the win that really wasn’t. But karma has a way of coming back around, and the Seahawks have a chance to put things right this weekend. “Without looking in the past, we have to root for a team we fell short to,” Clay Matthews said Thursday. “So that’s how it goes. We’ll control our own destiny by winning these out and hopefully we can get some help along the way.” See, San Francisco (10-3-1) is a game ahead of Green Bay (104) for the NFC’s No. 2 seed and Seattle plays the 49ers on Sunday night. Beat the Niners and the Seahawks can essentially get the Packers back to where they would have been had replacement referees not blown that

call back in September. Which means that, providing they beat Tennessee on Sunday afternoon, the Packers will find themselves rooting for the Seahawks. “Yeah, but we’d love to have that bye, be sitting there at the 1 or 2 seed,” Aaron Rodgers said. “So at this point, we’re trying to have a short memory, kind of rooting for the teams that you need to win.” The Inaccurate Reception, alternately known as the Fail Mary, was arguably the worst call of the NFL season. Green Bay safety M.D. Jennings appeared to intercept a last-ditch pass to Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate in the end zone only to have replacement referees rule it a touchdown, giving Seattle a 14-12 win. While the NFL said the next day that the reception call was right, it conceded that Tate should have been called for interference on the play, which would have given Green Bay the win. The outrage was immediate, and came from every corner of the country. TURN




INSTEAD OF GOLD, frankincense and myrrh, the gift I will give you for our first Christmas together is shrimp. Before your hopes get too Lee high, I have to Horton warn you that I’m not literally giving you the shrimp, but rather the knowledge of shrimp. Here you go: recreational shrimp fishing opportunities will increase significantly in 2013. The state Department of Fish and Wildlife has approved a new shrimp policy and management strategy that allocates 70 percent of the shrimp catch to sport harvesters. Nontribal commercial fishermen will receive 30 percent. Under the new plan, recreational shrimp harvesting could be open 31 additional days on the Strait of Juan de Fuca, while other areas could be open one or two additional days. I hope this gift keeps you warm or entertained during the long winter months.

Medicare premiums may go up

$ Briefly . . . New hotline offering free business help


WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; They may not agree on much else, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a change to Medicare that President Barack Obama and Republicans both support: sxpand a little-known law so more retirees that the government considers well-off are required to pay higher monthly premiums. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the short list in the budget talks, raising $20 billion or more over 10 years. Income-based premiums were introduced for outpatient care under former President George W. Bush and expanded to the prescription benefit, or Medicare Part D, by Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health care law. The idea is to keep broadening their reach.

How it would work




Greg Faris and fiancee, Leeah Weeks, center, are flanked by Port Angeles Ambassadors at the grand opening of Slung Down Body Art, 524 E. Eighth St. The new tattoo shop is open Tuesdays through Saturdays. Phone 360-775-6112.

First, current income-based premiums would be ratcheted up. Those surcharges, assessed on a sliding scale, kick in for individuals making more than $85,000, or $170,000 for couples. Second, the number of beneficiaries paying higher monthly premiums would go up each year. That would be done by extending a temporary freeze on the income thresholds at which the higher premiums are assessed. Without adjusting the thresholds for inflation, the share of beneficiaries paying higher premiums would grow from 5 percent currently to 25 percent, or 1 in 4 people with Medicare.

N.Y. Stock Exchange has biggest â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;sellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; order: itself Little-known Atlanta rival acquires iconic Big Board for $8 billion THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The New York Stock Exchange is being sold to a little-known rival in Atlanta for about $8 billion, ending more than two centuries of independence for the iconic Big Board. The buyer, IntercontinentalExchange, a 12-year-old exchange that deals in investing contracts known as futures, said Thursday that little would change for the trading floor in Manhattanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial district. The NYSE dates to 1792, when 24 brokers and merchants traded stocks under a buttonwood tree on Wall Street. But its importance today is mostly symbolic. Most trading is done on computers that match thousands of orders a second. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The cash equities business in

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The original New York Stock Exchange, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a brand name, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got recognition.â&#x20AC;? THOMAS CALDWELL shareholder in NYSE Euronext America has effectively been obliterated,â&#x20AC;? said Thomas Caldwell, chairman of Caldwell Securities in Toronto and a shareholder in the New York exchangeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parent company, NYSE Euronext. He said the jewel of the deal is not the New York exchange but Liffe, a futures exchange founded in London. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The original New York Stock Exchange, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a brand name, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got recognition, but as a business, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very small part of this thing,â&#x20AC;? Caldwell said.



NYSE Euronext has been looking for a deal. Last year, ICE and Nasdaq OMX Group Inc., which competes with the NYSE for stock listings, made an $11 billion bid to buy NYSE Euronext. But that deal fell apart over antitrust concerns. Earlier this year, European regulators blocked Deutsche Boerse AG from buying NYSE Euronext. ICE was established in 2000 by some of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest energy companies and financial institutions.

Three decades ago, the floor of the New York exchange was full of bustling traders. Today, one of its largest booths belongs to the cable news channel CNBC, which broadcasts there for most of the business day. The stature of the exchange has been dwindling for years because of intensifying competition, a harsher regulatory environment and the declining popularity of stocks as an investment, Caldwell said.

Slaughter ban EVERETT â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Snohomish County Council voted Wednesday to ban slaughtering horses for human consumption. A change in federal law last year made it possible for horses to be killed for food. But Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vote heads off the practice at a packing plant near Stanwood, where horses were slaughtered in the 1990s. It now ships them to a Canadian slaughterhouse. Most of the two dozen people who spoke before the vote favored the ban. Allen Warren of the Horse Harbor Foundation in Pouslbo said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d ask lawmakers in Olympia for a statewide ban. On the other side, Snohomish veterinarian Dr. Richard Guthrie said slaughter would be preferable to having horses neglected or abandoned.

Our laughter lifts our Unspoken, we ask: “Do It can’t be a star — you hear what I hear?” what is it? IT IS DARK, the tedious dark that lingers between late night and early morning. Stars dance on the dark palette above me. But one very bright star causes me to wonder. Have I ever seen it before? I don’t remember it. Hmm, interesting. The stars allow me to see some of my shepherd friends in the near distance, and against the horizon, I can see silhouettes of sheep safely grazing. In the foreground, the starlight allows me to see lambs sleeping peacefully next to their mothers. “Sleep in peace,” I pause to think, “for your trip to the temple altar will come soon.” All my senses are engaged in a battle between slumber and duty. The familiar irritation of a gentle snore confirms that one of my shepherd friends has momentarily lost his battle.


spirits and lifts our heads toward the again silent night sky. We all scurry down the mountain as fast as we dare. There is neither need nor breath to talk. Occasionally, someone stumbles. Occasionally, someone laughs. Rocks tumbling down in front of us stir up dust — and anticipation stirs up hearts. The Messiah! The Messiah, lying in a manger! It is difficult to keep silent as we enter the city. Truthfully, we don’t try very hard. Excited footsteps echo off the stone walls and streets of Bethlehem. With keen shepherds’ vision, we search the darkness. “There, a light! Over there in that cave! Let’s go! Let’s go! Hurry!” In unison, we slow our pace as we approach the holy scene. A cloud of dust follows us. We see a man and a young girl too preoccupied to see us at first. Their gaze is fixed downward before them. As we slowly approach the stable, we see who captivates their attention: the child. Wrapped in cloths. Lying in a manger. It is true! The parents momentarily break their gaze and silently bid us to come. Slowly. Quietly. Reverently.

We approach the manger. We approach the child. We approach the Messiah! Without a word, we join the parents’ gaze on the child. In one accord, shepherds’ knees bow. Silent adoration. There are no words to our worship. Songs will evolve, but for this holy moment, the baby sleeps in heavenly peace. But it is impossible for our joy to remain silent. We start to tell the parents what we just experienced on the mountain, but with one finger pressed to her smiling lips, the mother shoos us off with her other hand. We pull the father aside and tell him our story. Angels. Good news! Great joy! Great joy for all people! This day! This night! In Bethlehem! The Savior was born! The Messiah! And he is lying in this manger! Glory to God! Peace on earth to whom his favor rests! The father smiles and firmly pats the shoulder of each of us. The mother cannot help but overhear our conversation in spite of our futile attempts to be quiet. Her gaze never leaves the child. Silently, she treasures up all these things and ponders them in her heart. But we are not in the pondering mood. It is

impossible for us to remain quiet. We quickly bid father, mother and Holy Child farewell, and with uncontainable hurriedness, we pierce the silent night as dawn encroaches. And again, excited footsteps echo off the stone walls and streets of Bethlehem. First, we begin to tell the good news to each other, even though each of us was a witness. In the days to come, others will hear.

A repeated tale Over and over, the good news is repeated. And over and over, all who hear it are amazed at what the shepherds say to them. But for now, there are sheep on the hill — we hope. So the shepherds return, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told. (Luke 2:8-16) May the shepherds’ excitement, amazement and worship of Jesus Christ continue through you this Christmas.

Fun ’n’ Advice






DEAR ABBY: My divorce from “Vince” will be final in a few weeks. We have two sons together, and we communicate well. Since our breakup, my parents have continued their relationship with my husband. They say, “You divorced him; we didn’t.” They have confirmed that he will be invited to all holiday events. I am so upset about it that I now want nothing to do with them. Vince has his own family who unanimously have removed me from their lives. I’m hurt by my parents’ actions. Am I wrong? And are my feelings normal? Lost My Parents in the Divorce in California

am financially stable. I have sent a dozen notes over the past few months, and not one woman has been polite enough to respond. Any thoughts? Dateless in Dayton

Dear Dateless: Please don’t let the lack of response make you quit putting yourself out there because eventually, you’re going to find someone if you keep trying. You are an intelligent man, and I am sure you have much to offer some lucky woman. However, I would delicately point out to you that by not responding to your notes, these women are sending you a message. It is possible that because the “chemistry” is wrong, they do not wish to get into a dialogue. Dear Abby: I’m a 17-year-old girl, and every time I meet people, they think I am 12. How do I look more my age? Please help me. Honey in Georgia Dear Honey: A way to accomplish it would be to go to a department store and ask at the cosmetics counter about a demonstration makeover to achieve a more sophisticated look. While you’re there, I’m sure a clothing salesperson also would be happy to accommodate you in finding items that girls your age are buying. A different hairstyle also could “update” your image if you are wearing it the way you did a few years ago. P.S.: While you may not think it now, later on, you will regard your youthful appearance as an asset. Trust me on that.

The Last Word in Astrology ❘

by Eugenia Last

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Get out and do some shopping or get involved in an event that will allow you to lend a helping hand. Strive to enhance your reputation and you will meet someone who can change your life by introducing you to a different lifestyle. 5 stars

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Put your heart on the line and show your feelings. The changes at home will bring you great joy and something to look forward to in the upcoming year. An honest assessment will make the difference between success and failure. 5 stars

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): A financial bonus or surprise is heading your way. Put your skills to work for you and offer a service that will help put cash in your pocket. A partnership will help you develop a business plan. Travel plans should be made. 3 stars

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Refrain from being overly generous. Draw the line when asked for too much or put in a position that warrants you to do things you’d prefer not to do. A change at home is likely to leave you feeling uncertain about your financial future. 3 stars

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Problems while traveling or dealing with foreigners, friends or relatives can be expected. Don’t make hasty decisions based on what others want. Stick to your game plan and think matters through. It’s your discipline that will win out in the end. 2 stars

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A positive attitude will help you develop better relationships with people trying to reach similar goals. You may feel like celebrating, but overdoing it in any way will lead to emotional or financial loss. Stick to what and whom you know. 4 stars

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Listen carefully or you may misinterpret what’s expected of you at home or at work as the day progresses. Do your share, but maintain equality as well as moderation to avoid feeling like you’ve been taken for granted. Avoid anyone being excessive. 3 stars

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t let what others do add pressure or responsibilities that don’t belong to you. Enjoy time spent with good friends or those you know you can rely on regardless of what happens. Follow your intuition. It won’t let you down. 2 stars

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Money matters must be taken care of frugally. Learn from past experience when it comes to making impulsive purchases. Focus more on what you can do or create that will help you bring in more money. Don’t let a lover or partner cost you. 3 stars

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You can’t please everyone, so do your best to please the people you care about most. A moneymaking opportunity will spark your interest. Personal changes will build confidence and help you venture down new avenues. Love is enhanced. 3 stars


Der Abby: I am a 50-year-old divorced man. I use an online dating service to meet women my age, but I’m extremely frustrated by the lack of courtesy. Why is it so hard for a woman to simply write, “Thanks, but I’m not interested” after getting a note of inquiry? My photos are recent, I’m polite, and I send thoughtful notes that show I have read their profiles carefully and think there’s a chance we have something in common. I admit, I’m not the handsomest man, but I hold a master’s degree and

Rose is Rose


Dear Lost: As the father of your children, Vince always will be a part of your life, so my advice is to accept it graciously. Because Vince had a good relationship with your parents, I can understand why they would extend an invitation to the father of their grandchildren. Whether he will choose to accept is the question. His family may have declared you persona non grata because in their eyes, you divorced him. That said, your feelings are your feelings. Rather than say they are “wrong,” I would point out that they are unproductive at this point. As you move forward with your emotional life, I predict this will become less of an issue.

The Family Circus

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Gauge your time and don’t make a move because someone puts pressure on you. Believe in your capabilities, and set your goals based on your needs and what you want to achieve. Love is in the stars, and advancement is within reach. 4 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t take on too much. Set your priorities and a strict budget. A relationship you have will be unstable. Don’t make judgments that will make you look bad. You will be missing pertinent information that will change your mind. 3 stars

PORT TOWNSEND â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Denise Winter dreamed of a Christmas gift for her town. She dreamed big. Couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help it, you see: Now Key City Public Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s artistic director, Winter spent six seasons managing the Radio City Christmas Spectacular starring the Rockettes. Yes, the one in New York City. After running that highkicking show from 2000 to 2006, Winter has for the past several Christmases lived happily on the North Olympic Peninsula. And so, serendipitously, has another Manhattan transplant: composer, arranger and pianist Linda Dowdell. Together, the women have cooked up a recipe for an after-Christmas dessert. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My Christmas Song for You: A Holiday Spectacular,â&#x20AC;? starring some 25 singers and players age 5 to

50-plus, will premiere this Wednesday and run through Monday, Dec. 31, at the Key City Playhouse, 419 Washington St. The Port Townsend High School Glee Club, the Hustle-Bustle Big Band and host David Cunningham will present matinees and evening shows, at 2:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. each day, through Dec. 30, plus one last performance at 2:30 p.m. Dec. 31. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is totally our own Christmas show,â&#x20AC;? said Winter.

Special arrangement Dowdell, as musical director, has done special arrangements of holiday songs. Local writers have contributed short pieces about being home or away from home at holiday time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My Christmas Song for Youâ&#x20AC;? is a showcase of talent across this community, Winter noted.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;My Christmas Song for You,â&#x20AC;? starring a playhouse full of singers and players, is a musical journey celebrating many aspects of the holidays. The show runs Dec. 26-31 at Port Townsendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Key City Playhouse. ing Jessica Reid, Elise Iliff, Jennifer Ewing, Amy Dahlberg, Misha Cassella-Blackburn and Amelia Brummel will also appear. The Hustle Bustle Big Band, meantime, brings together Dowdell on piano, cellist Fred Nussbaum, Darrell Plank on keyboard and Port Townsend High School student John Reid on percussion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I like about it is that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re giving a different take to [each] song,â&#x20AC;? said Dowdell. In addition to arranging â&#x20AC;&#x153;My Christmas Song for Youâ&#x20AC;?

and playing in the band, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shepherdess to the Port Townsend High Glee Club. Dowdell, who has worked with the Mark Morris Dance Group and Mikhail Baryshnikovâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s White Oak Dance Project among other ensembles, has been guiding the after-school singing club for about three years now. The Key City Playhouse holiday spectacular, Dowdell and Winter hope, is a ride through the seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and other pleasures. Songs like â&#x20AC;&#x153;We Need a Little Christmas,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The 12

Days of Christmasâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Up on the Housetopâ&#x20AC;? are part of the show, along with Hoagy Carmichaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;My Christmas Song for You.â&#x20AC;?

Special moments One of Dowdellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite moments comes in jazzman Thad Jonesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; blend of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Away in a Mangerâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Child Is Born,â&#x20AC;? sung by Ewing, Cassella-Blackburn and Ciel Pope. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a neat way to re-enjoy it,â&#x20AC;? Dowdell said of the music. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully, there will be

that one special song that touches your heart.â&#x20AC;? And at the top of the second half, Winter promised, the children in the audience will be invited up on stage for a reading of Clement C. Mooreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1823 poem â&#x20AC;&#x153;Twas the Night before Christmas.â&#x20AC;? And while it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the fishnets and sequins of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we will have on-stage snow,â&#x20AC;? Dowdell predicted. TURN







POWER in the image

Wildlife photographers in spotlight at Royal B.C. Museum in Victoria BY DIANE URBANI DE LA PAZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

VICTORIA — Eye-widening beauty, horror and comedy wait for you inside this darkened room. One hundred images compose the 2012 Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition, at the Royal British Columbia Museum a few blocks east of the MV Coho ferry dock. In these backlit photos, penguins blast out of the water; a spirit bear lounges in an emerald forest; a giant otter cub pops from the water like a periscope. The northern lights appear as a green smear across the sky. A Japanese macaque relaxes in a hot spring. And a raven, with its tousled plumage, cracks up a photographer.

A visit to this exhibit, from London’s Natural History Museum, is a close-in view of life in some of the world’s wildest places — and of nature intersecting with crowded cities. The photographers are all over the map: the 19 categories include those for shooters younger than 10 years old, ages 10 to 14 and 15 to 17. Children and teens who see it, along with their parents, may well be inspired to go exploring with a camera.

Teen division Eve Tucker, a winner in the 15-to-17 category, is one such explorer who saw a workaday scene and turned it into a thing of beauty: a black-headed gull beside a London wharf, where the nearby buildings


“Fairy Lake Fir” is part of the “Botanical Realms” category in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year show at Victoria’s Royal B.C. Museum.

are reflected as wavy lines in the water. And cold — make that icy — water is also the setting for the overall winner of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. He is Greg Nicklen of Canada, a determined man who submerged himself in Antarctica’s Ross Sea, near an “exit hole” for emperor penguins. Breathing through a snorkel, he waited. Then the birds rocketed up, bubbles pouring from their feathers as they rose to sunlight. “Bubble-Jetting Emperors” is a swirl of blue, black and white — and just one of the photos that stays bright in the visitor’s memory. Another is “Fairy Lake Fir,” a portrait of a miniature Douglas fir clinging to a nurse log’s tip. It’s a symbolic holdout, the photo’s caption notes, since Fairy Lake is near Port Renfrew, B.C., an area that was heavily logged. “It always amazes me how resilient nature is,” writes Adam Gibbs, the British photographer who captured this bonsai-like tree. In the “Urban Wildlife” category, the winning photograph takes us inside an abandoned cottage that’s home to a red squirrel. Titled “Secret Lives,” this was taken by Kai Fagerstrom. “Deserted buildings are so full of contradictions,”


Greg Nicklen photographed “Bubble-jetting emperors” beneath Antarctica’s Ross Sea.


“Relaxation,” the image of a Japanese macaque resting in a hot spring, is part of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibit in Victoria. writes the Finnish photographer, who spent 15 years documenting the life in such places. “I am so fascinated by the way nature reclaims spaces that were essentially only on loan to humans.”

“Looking through the images afterwards, I laughed out loud.” All is not pretty and delightful here. On one wall of the exhibit is “The World in Our Hands,” a set of shocking images. Men clean a dry dolphin tank at Simplicity an aquarium in Taiwan, “Fluff-up,” a portrait of a seeming oblivious to the raven by Canadian John E. gray-black dolphin lying on Marriott, shows how funny its floor. A rhinoceros is shown blindfolded and and simple the art of phohornless, a victim of the tography can be. The bird, rhino-horn trade. A Dallas with its feathers sticking out all around its face, “just man is photographed sursat there,” Marriott writes, rounded by the stuffed bodies and heads of animals “looking as though it had just got out of bed. he has hunted and killed.

The Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition is an unflinching look not only into the far corners of Earth, but also into the many ways humans confront, and alter, the rest of nature. The Royal B.C. Museum is the only place outside London’s Natural History Museum to see this year’s show. It has been a huge hit, said Tim Willis, director of exhibitions at the museum. “In this age of digital high definition film, it’s fascinating to see the power of still images at work,” he said, “and these are the finest on the planet.” The Wildlife Photographer of the Year’ show will stay on display till April 1. It’s alongside another temporary exhibit, “Envisioning the World,” which explores the first printed maps in history and how they reflected world cultures. There are also many permanent displays in the “First Peoples,” “Natural History” and “Modern History” galleries at the Royal B.C. Museum, 675 Belleville St. For details on hours and admission prices, phone 250-356-7226 or visit www.
