Nole said the Sheriff’s Office had made contact with the owner of the truck, which he identified as M&M Trucking of Port Townsend. Nole said his office identified the driver but would not disclose his name. Nole said M&M had made contact with CenturyLink, which owns and operates the severed cable.

The culvert had become perched with a large drop that prevented salmon from moving upstream in all but the highest flows. More than a mile of spawning and rearing habitat will be opened to fish, according to Jim Haney, operations manager for Makah Forestry Enterprise. Haney noted there will be an additional project in the future to increase access for fish to a wetland nearby. The tribe has worked steadily to improve fish habitat in the Tsoo-Yess River watershed southeast of Makah Bay. Projects have included land acquisition from private timber companies.

CenturyLink spokesperson Jan Kampbell said she had heard T-Mobile was the only carrier that was disrupted, although there were reports that AT&T and Sprint service also had outages. TURN

From culvert to bridge NEAH BAY –– The Makah tribe is working to improve salmon habitat on Grimes Creek in the Tsoo-Yess River watershed by replacing a fishblocking culvert with a 60-foot-long bridge. The watershed is home to coho, chinook and steelhead. “This particular culvert replacement has been on Makah Forestry Enterprise’s radar for some time, and they finally had the resources to get it done,” said Ray Colby, water quality specialist for the Makah tribe.

William, Kate announce pregnancy THE MOST WIDELY anticipated pregnancy since Britain’s Princess Diana’s in 1981 is official: Prince William’s wife, Kate, is pregnant. St. James’s Palace announced the pregnancy Monday, saying that the Duchess of Cambridge — formerly known as Kate Middleton — has a severe form of morning sickness and is currently in a London hospital. William is at his wife’s side. News of the pregnancy drew congratulations from across the world, with the hashtag “royalbaby” trending globally on Twitter. The couple’s first child will be third in line to take the throne — leapfrogging the gregarious Prince Harry and possibly setting up the first scenario in which a U.K. female heir could benefit from new gender rules about succession. The palace would not say how far along the 30-year-old duchess is, only that she has not yet reached the 12-week mark. Palace officials said the duchess was hospitalized with hyperemesis gravidarum, a potentially dangerous type of morning sickness where vomiting is so severe no food or liquid can be kept down. They said she was expected to

Arrested in Seattle Stand-up comedian and actor Katt Williams has been released from jail after being arrested following a dispute at a Seattle bar. Police said he argued Sunday with another patron at the World Sports Williams Grille, menaced the manager with a pool cue and refused to

leave. He’s also accused of flicking a cigarette into a woman’s face through a car window and throwing a rock at the vehicle. Police said Williams struggled with officers who arrested him and jailed him for investigation of assault, harassment and obstruction. He was released from King County Jail early Monday. An attempt by The Associated Press to reach Williams for comment was not immediately successful. Police said Williams also was involved in an altercation with three fans Friday evening after they tried to take a photo with him. He said they had forced their way into his dressing room.

DAVID OLIVER RELIN, 49, co-author of the best-selling book Three Cups of Tea, committed suicide in Corbett, Ore., outside Portland, on Nov. 14, said the deputy Multnomah County medical examiner, Peter Bellant, on Sunday. Mr. Relin died of blunt force head injury, Bellant said. He declined to provide other Mr. Relin details. in 2006 Mr. Relin said in legal filings more than a year before his suicide that his career had been hurt by allegations of fabrications in the book recounting how Greg Mortenson started building schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan. The book, which has sold about 4 million copies since being published in 2006, describes how Mortenson became lost after a failed mountaineering expedition and was nursed back to health in a Pakistani village. Based on the villagers’ kindness and the poverty he saw, he resolved to build a school for them. The account came under

As Mickey & Sylvia, they came up with the million-selling “Love Is Strange” at their second session. Bo Diddley had written the song but passed it along to them because he was angry with his music publishers because they never paid him enough, Marsh wrote. The recording received renewed attention in 1987 when it was featured in the movie “Dirty Dancing” and again this year when it was sampled on rapper Pitbull’s “Back in Time” single that was in the film “Men in Black 3.”

MICKEY BAKER, 87, an exceptional 1950s session guitarist who played on hundreds of recordings, helping to transform rhythm and blues into rock ’n’ roll, died Nov. 27 at his home near Toulouse, France, according to French media reports. A cause of death was not disclosed.

1937 (75 years ago) Acceptance of two timberland donations in the Port Angeles Morse Creek watershed from Clallam County was announced by the U.S. Forest Service. One piece of land consists of 160 acres in Cox’s Valley, behind Mount Angeles, and the other is 80 acres of partially logged land in Morse Creek Valley. Both lie in the important Morse Creek watershed, from which the city of Port Angeles draws its domestic water supply. The watershed is now protected by a joint agreement between the secretary of agriculture and the city of Port Angeles following the agreement from Clallam County to turn over the lands to the Forest Service.

The mills are located in Everett, Bellingham, Port Angeles and Anacortes. Alfred Neale, acting director of the commission, declined to name the mills involved. Neale said months of talks between technicians on both sides have resulted in the drafting of “planned technical programs” for the mills’ abatement practices.

A3 Briefly: Nation Town evacuates over 3,000 tons of explosives DOYLINE, La. — Weather could complicate the transfer of roughly 6 million pounds of explosives that Louisiana officials said were haphazardly stored at an industrial site in northwestern Louisiana and led to the evacuation of a small town, a state police spokeswoman said Monday. If lightning is spotted within 5 miles of the site, authorities will suspend efforts to move the artillery propellant that began Saturday, Lt. Julie Lewis said. Light rain fell at midday. Officials said more than half of Doyline’s 800 residents heeded police advice to evacuate in advance of the cleanup at the Explo Systems Inc. site. Col. Mike Edmondson, commander of Louisiana State Police, said officials fear that any spark could set off a huge explosion of the material, which they said was stored improperly. Authorities had initially estimated the total of M6 stored at the site at 1 million pounds after the initial investigator saw cardboard boxes on long rows of pallets behind a building. Police found more stacked in sheds and warehouses when crews returned Saturday.

GOP’s counter-offer: Cut Social Security Republicans oppose plan to hike taxes THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — House Republicans on Monday proposed a new 10-year, $2.2 trillion blueprint to President Barack Obama that calls for increasing the eligibility age for Medicare and lowering cost-of-living hikes for Social Security benefits. The proposal from House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and other Republicans comes in response to Obama’s offer last week to hike taxes by $1.6 trillion over the coming decade but largely exempt Medicare and Social Security from budget cuts. The GOP plan also proposes to raise $800 billion in higher tax revenue over the decade, but it would keep the Bush-era tax cuts — including those for wealthier earners targeted by Obama — in place for now.

‘Credible plan’ Boehner said the GOP proposal is a “credible plan” for Obama and that he hoped the administration would “respond in a timely and responsible way.” “After the election, I offered to

The Boehner proposal revives a host of ideas from failed talks with Obama in the summer of 2011. Then, Obama was willing to discuss politically controversial ideas like raising the eligibility age for Medicare, implementing a new inflation adjustment for Social Security cost-of-living adjustments and requiring wealthier Medicare recipients to

pay more for their benefits. On Monday, Obama did not respond to questions from reporters on his reaction to the Republican counteroffer or whether he had seen the proposal. He was asked about the offer during an event in the Oval Office with the Bulgarian prime minister. The clock is ticking closer to the end-of-year deadline to avert the fiscal cliff, which is a combination of the expiration of Bush-era tax cuts and automatic, acrossthe-board spending cuts that are the result of prior failures of Congress and Obama to make a budget deal.

U.N. pulls staff from Syria THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BEIRUT — Fighting between rebels and government forces raged near the Syrian capital Damascus on Monday, forcing an inbound commercial jet to turn back while the U.N. said it was withdrawing staff because of deteriorating security conditions. Lebanese security officials said Jihad Makdissi, a polished Foreign Ministry spokesman known for defending the regime of President Bashar Assad in fluent English, flew from Beirut to London. But it was not immediately clear whether he had defected. The fighting over the past few weeks in and around Damascus has been the most serious in the capital since July, when rebels captured several neighborhoods before a swift government counteroffensive swept them out.

Spike in violence The spike in violence recently was concentrated in the ring of mostly poor suburbs around Damascus but often bleeds into the capital itself as rebels fight closer to Assad’s seat of power. Assad’s forces have repelled major rebel advances on the capital, but their hold may be slipping. “The security situation has become extremely difficult, including in Damascus,” said Radhouane Nouicer, the U.N.’s regional humanitarian coordinator for Syria. Nouicer said the U.N. was withdrawing most of its international staff from Syria due to security issues, adding that up to one quarter of the 100 interna-

In another sign of deteriorating security, an Egyptian commercial jet aborted a trip to Damascus in mid-flight because of violence near the airport. The EgyptAir flight from Cairo rerouted about 30 minutes after takeoff because Egyptian officials received word from their counterparts in Damascus that the area near the airport was not safe, Egyptian airport officials said. EgyptAir canceled all further flights to Syria for Monday and today and will decide later whether to resume flights later in the week, the officials said, speak-

Emirates airlines said on its website that all flights to Syria were suspended “until further notice.” The Britain-based opposition activist group Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the clashes were within 2 miles of the airport, which lies about 15 miles southeast of the city center. The state news service reported clashes in an area about 9 miles from the airport. It said nothing about flight cancellations.

A SUSPECTED SMUGGLING vessel rammed a Coast Guard chase boat during a counter-drug operation off the California coast, killing Chief Petty Officer Terrell Horne III, 34. Horne suffered a traumatic head injury in the crash near the Channel Islands west of Malibu, officials said. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Monday that Horne and fellow crewmembers of the Coast Guard cutter Halibut “were engaged [Sunday] in an at-sea interdiction when they came under threat by a small vessel that rammed their small boat.” Two men aboard a board were later stopped and taken into custody.

VOLUNTEERS IN THE northwest Ohio village of Rudolph have come together to save the most famous postmark of all. Thousands of letters flood the village post office every December so they can be stamped with a Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer postmark. But the tradition was in danger of ending when the post office staff was cut down to one. Close to 75 people, including a few retired postal workers, have signed up to stamp the special Reindeer Station postmark on the 80,000 letters and cards that come in from across the country.

POLICE IN COUDERSPORT, Pa., north of Pittsburgh, said an elementary school music teacher shot his ex-wife while she played the organ during a Sunday church service, then returned moments later to shoot her again and ensure she was dead before congregants stopped and grabbed him. Those details are contained in a criminal complaint filed Monday against Gregory Eldred, 52, of Coudersport. He was jailed without bond on firstdegree murder charges stemming from the shooting at the First United Presbyterian Church of Coudersport. That’s where 53-year-old Darlene Sitler was playing the organ when she was shot.

AT LEAST NINE people are confirmed dead in Sunday’s collapse of a Japanese highway tunnel located between Tokyo and Mount Fuji, according to police. Five bodies were recovered from a van when parts of a concrete ceiling tumbled and a fire filled the 3-mile-long tunnel with thick, black smoke. The bodies of three people in a passenger vehicle and the driver of a freezer truck also were recovered. Investigators said that supports in the ceiling of the 35-year-old tunnel might have grown brittle, allowing hundreds of the slabs of 8-inch-thick concrete, weighing about 180 tons, to fall.

The company is replacing a pipeline that sits upstream of the former Condit Dam.

YAKIMA — A company building a natural gas pipeline across southwest Washington’s White Salmon River says construction will be completed this month, even as a Native American tribe seeks a halt to the project. The Yakama tribe claims the pipeline will hurt a culturally significant archaeological site. The tribe has asked the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to halt the construction. Williams-Northwest Pipeline said it has been in frequent communication with the tribe about the project and believes it has acted in good faith to follow required regulations.

SEQUIM — There would be no immediate impacts on new water management rules — or the state money that’s been promised to implement them — if a threatened lawsuit to Water Resource Inventory Area 18 is filed early next year, county and state officials said. The North Olympic Peninsula Building Association is spearheading a planned lawsuit asking to rescind rules for Water Resource Inventory Area 18 between Bagley Creek and Sequim Bay, Greg McCarry, a council organizer, said Monday. “We not opposed to having some measure of a rule,� he said. “What we concerned about is, this is overreaching.� McCarry said last week that the group has named a steering committee to form the Olympic Protection Resource Council to carry forward the effort. He said he was 90 percent certain that the lawsuit will be filed against the state Department of Ecology in Thurston County

Superior Court early next year. WRIA 18 opponents are seeking $100,000 in pledges to fund the McCarry e f f o r t , McCarry said. “We are going to challenge the legal authority and the process Ecology engaged in pursing the implementation,� McCarry said. “We don’t think they followed procedures set forth in the statutes.� Ecology spokesman Dan Partridge said the agency “obviously� disagrees with the group’s objections to WRIA 18. “It’s been thoroughly researched and thoroughly vetted in the state Attorney General’s Office that represents Ecology in rulemaking and other matters,� he said.

No speculation Partridge would not comment on the impacts if a lawsuit is successful and a judge throws out the water rule.

“The bottom line is we will not speculate on the impacts on water management in the Dungeness basin from a lawsuit that hasn’t yet even been filed,� he said. Partridge said the new water rules would apply to WRIA 18 beginning Jan. 2 regardless of when and if a lawsuit is filed — and until a judge decides otherwise. “If they don’t obtain a stay from the court, then the rule on Jan. 2 becomes law,� Partridge said. The rules for WRIA 18 apply to the Dungeness River area. It they are rescinded, it would simply turn back the clock to the status quo and not limit new development, according to the legal adviser to the Clallam County commissioners. “Presuming if there’s no water rule, there would be maintenance of the status quo; i.e., we would go back to the condition we were in prior to having the water rule,� Chief Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Mark Nichols said. “If everything that’s been done is undone, and we go back to Day 1 prior to Ecology beginning its

efforts with respect to WRIA 18, generally applicable state law will apply.�

Meeting today The three county commissioners also expect to move forward with the water rules at their meeting today. In separate interviews last Friday, they said that despite the lawsuit threat, they will approve a memo of understanding with Ecology that will outline the agency’s and county’s responsibilities for implementing the rule. “The bottom line is, we need to make sure we get this right so the community has access to water for any new projects,� Commissioner Mike Chapman said. In light of climate change and its impact on the Olympic Mountains, “we have a decreasing supply of water so should do more to protect people with water rights,� Commissioner Mike Doherty said. Commissioner Jim McEntire, who helped negotiate the memo of understanding with Ecology, has already recommended its approval.

The road has experienced growing volumes of residential, recreational and logging traffic over the years. No Striped Peak Road residents testified at a public hearing on the road plan last week. The Planning Commission also recommended a review of county spending for traffic policing. Commissioners said they would review the funding on an annual basis. The Planning Commission also suggested a study of upgrades to Pioneer and Ennis Creek roads east of Port Angeles for the safety of students walking to and from Roosevelt Elementary School. Paving and widening those roads would cost a combined $1.08 million. The proposed road plan has 25 funded projects totaling $24.6 million and 40 unfunded projects totaling $35.2 million. It reflects the loss of funding from the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act of 2000, which helps rural counties like Clallam and Jefferson compensate for lost timber revenue.

Sequim couple win drawing for heron driftwood sculpture PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

SEQUIM — Jacqui and Sanford Levy of Sequim won “Enchanted Heron,� a driftwood sculpture donated by Tuttie Peetz, during the Dungeness River Audubon Center’s sixth annual Nature Mart earlier this month. Peetz, an award-winning sculptor who lives in Sequim and a member of the Dungeness River Audubon Center board, donated the sculpture, valued at $700. “Railroad Bridge Park turned 20 this year, and I hoped that the raffle would raise $2,000 to commemorate the anniversary of the park and support our education programs,� Peetz said. Nearly that much — $1,960 — was raised during the raffle at Nature Mart, held Nov. 15-16 at the center inside Railroad Bridge Park at 2151 W. Hendrickson Road, said Julie Jackson, also a center board member and co-chairwoman of the event. The Levys moved to Sequim from Tucson, Ariz., in September, Jackson said. “We’d been too busy settling in and learning our way around to get to the river center before,� Jacqui told Jackson. After reading about the event in the Peninsula Daily News, they decided to attend and bought the winning raffle ticket.

State seeks money to enforce texting ban Incremental fines for repeat offenders equals more cash MCCLATCHY NEWS SERVICE

OLYMPIA — State government has applied for money that could pay for Washington’s first largescale campaign to enforce its ban on texting behind the wheel. But Congress is dangling a bigger pot of money that is just out of reach for Washington and most states because their penalties for texting and talking on the phone while driving don’t increase for repeat offenders. A second, third or 10th violation in Washington carries the same $124 fine as the first offense. Congress pushed to change that with a major transportation-funding law it passed

in July. State officials are considering whether penalties should change, and they’re conferring with the Legislature. “It could be a sizable Powerball for the state if we had the laws in place that would allow us to be able to access those funds,” said Jonna VanDyk, a program manager with the Washington Traffic Safety Commission. At least one lawmaker, whose clout is growing in Olympia, is receptive. “Maybe we’ll increase the penalties,” said Sen. Tracey Eide, D-Des Moines. “I think that’s what the feds want us to do.” Eide championed both the 2007 law that made it a

crime for drivers to text or to put a handheld cellphone to their ears, and the 2010 update Eide that allowed police to pull over cars for that reason alone. She now is in a key position to make changes. Her party nominated her last week to become the new chairwoman of the Senate Transportation Committee. She’s getting ready to move offices and take on new responsibilities, despite questions about whether minority Republicans will have enough leverage to demand some kind of power-sharing arrangement. The number of textingwhile-driving tickets shot

up after the law was toughened in 2010, but Eide acknowledges that drivers haven’t put down their phones despite the more than 8,000 tickets and 10,000 warnings handed out last year by the State Patrol alone.

Only local efforts The state hasn’t carried out any large-scale education campaign or a targeted enforcement effort, although there have been some local efforts, notably in King County, VanDyk said. Washington qualifies for a piece of $5.6 million being handed out to states with texting laws, and it hopes to win as much as $300,000, VanDyk said. A total of 39 states and the District of Columbia have laws on the books that prohibit texting while driving.

At least half of the awarded money would have to be used for enforcement of the texting law or for advertising or signs that discourage distracted driving. The money would fund ads and patrols in the style of the seat-belt campaign called Click It or Ticket, said Darrin Grondel, director of the safety commission. “That enforcement process has been very effective with helping to change driver behavior,” Grondel said.

Seat belt compliance Washington had the highest seat belt compliance in the country last year at 97.5 percent, a recent federal report found. But a larger amount of money that could be used for similar campaigns —

$11.9 million in 2013 and $18.1 million in 2014 — is designed to go only to states with escalating fines for repeat offenders. The state would be required to have such increasing penalties both for texting and for any use of phones by young drivers. A few states, but not many, have texting fines that ramp up, according to AAA. Such fines are even more rare for handheld phone bans. John Bowman is a spokesman for the National Motorists Association, which is concerned with laws it sees as encroaching on drivers’ rights. He said warnings and education are more effective tools than steeper penalties. “People respond in a lot of ways better to a softer approach on these issues,” he said.

Feature makes state park pass more flexible Buyers choose permit’s start date PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

OLYMPIA — A new feature of the Discover Pass allows purchasers to choose the start date for the annual pass. The new “choose your date” option is available to customers who buy the pass online at www.Discover or in person from retailers who sell recreational licenses through the Washington Interactive Licensing Database — or WILD — system.

Vendor locations Retail vendor locations are listed on the state Department of Fish and Wildlife website at wdfw. At the time of purchase, the buyer can activate the pass immediately or on any day within one year of the

purchase date. The new option was passed into law in 2012 to allow greater flexibility to outdoor recreation enthusiasts, including those who want to give the pass as a gift.

Required license The Discover Pass, authorized by the Legislature and governor in 2011, is required on motor vehicles accessing state parks and other state-managed recreation lands. It was adopted to support the operation of state recreation lands, including those managed by the state Parks and Recreation Commission, the state Department of Fish and Wildlife and the state Department of Natural Resources.

BURLINGTON, Vt. — A Vermont couple who disappeared last year were the victims of an Alaska man who set out across the country intent on kidnapping and murdering someone and picked them because the layout of their house lent itself to an invasion, authorities said Monday. Israel Keyes cut a phone line to test for the presence of an alarm system and wore a headlamp during what he called a “blitz” attack on the Essex home of Bill and Lorraine Currier in the dead of night, officials said at a news conference in Burlington. Keyes died over the weekend in an Alaska jail, apparently in a suicide, as he awaited trial in another death in that state. Authorities said he confessed both crimes to investigators and may be responsible for the deaths of five other people, four in Washington state and one in New York. Keyes tied up the Curriers, drove them to an abandoned house and shot one

and strangled the o t h e r , authorities said. Both tried in vain to escape. B e f o r e Keyes that, Keyes flew from Alaska to Chicago on June 2, 2011, rented a car and drove almost 1,000 miles to Vermont, carrying a gun and silencer, authorities said. He spent three days in Vermont, even buying a fishing license, officials said.

Why he chose them Keyes told investigators he chose the Curriers’ home because it had an attached garage, no evidence of children or a dog, and the style of the house told him the probable location of the master bedroom. In preparing to break in, he cut the phone line to see whether it would trigger an alarm. He removed a fan from a window to get into the garage June 8 and smashed a window into the house with a crowbar that had been hanging on the

wall of the garage. “Keyes then engaged in what he called a ‘blitz’ attack on the Curriers and ran to the room he had earlier predicted was the bedroom,” Chittenden County State’s Attorney T.J. Donovan said. After binding the two with zip ties, Keyes drove the Curriers, both in their 50s, to an abandoned house in Essex that he had already scouted. He tied Bill to a stool in the basement. Lorraine Currier had been left in the car and tried to escape. Keyes tackled the fleeing woman and brought her back to the house, Donovan said. “It is clear from the facts of the case that, though confronted with death, Bill and Lorraine showed extraordinary bravery and an extreme dedication and love for one another,” Donovan said. “They fought to the end.” When Keyes died, he was being held for the slaying of 18-year-old Samantha Koenig, who was abducted from a coffee kiosk in Anchorage in February. He was arrested in Texas after using her debit card.

On our coast, a tragedy 200 years ago ONE OF THE most beautiful spots in the West End — and maybe in the world — is Rialto Beach. Located 12 miles from Forks, the rugged shoreline plays host on occasion to wedding parties, producing a unique experience and amazing photos. But for one newlywed Russian couple, an unscheduled stopover at this breathtaking location would prove to be anything but a honeymoon. Nikolai Bulygin was the captain of the SV Nikolai, a schooner about 45 feet long. Bulygin was sent in 1808 to explore the coast of what is now Washington state for possible new settlements. Eighteen-year-old Anna Petrovna had just married Nikolai and accompanied him on the trip. The voyage had a mandate from Alexander Baranov, the head of the Sitka base of RussianAmerican Co. — Sitka and Alaska weren’t U.S. territory yet — to gather information in advance of Russian colonization. Anna, along with her husband, Russian fur hunters known as promyshlennik, an Englishman, Aleut men and women and a part-Russian teenager went ashore at Rialto on Nov. 1, 1808. This was after almost a week of being adrift and tossed around by gale-force winds and large swells in the turbulent Pacific. The Nikolai had drifted from Destruction Island southwest of the Hoh River north about 20 miles to the beach near LaPush. After escaping the sinking schooner and reaching the shore, the party used sails draped over wooden yards from the shipwreck

WEST END NEIGHBOR as tents. They lighted Baron a fire and prepared to head south many miles to Grays Harbor, where they hoped a companion Russian ship, the Kad‘iak, would pick them up. Almost immediately there were conflicts with the Quileute, Hoh and Makah, who were accustomed to fighting each other and strangers. Anna was captured, and her husband went almost mad with grief, refusing to give up his search for her no matter how many of his crew died or were captured. At one point, Anna was brought back for ransom, but the price demanded were the muskets of the Russians. Without them, the Russians would have no way of hunting food or protecting themselves from the tribes. Even though Bulygin begged his men to give up their guns, they refused — and Anna was taken away. In the spring, the castaways were led to Anna. The Russians had managed to take some Native women as hostages, hoping that Anna could now go free. To their shock, they heard Anna say that she was satisfied with her situation and did not want to rejoin the Russians.



Rialto Beach, where the Russian colonial schooner SV Nikolai shipwrecked in 1808. She advised them to surrender. Bulygin collapsed at the news. Later, he and part of the remaining crew surrendered. The captives were held as slaves and were traded among the tribes, with most ending up with the Makah in the Neah Bay area. As slaves, Bulygin and Anna were together at times. Anna died in August 1809. A heartbroken Bulygin died of advanced consumption the following February. Thirteen survivors were ransomed by American fur traders in May 1810 and returned to Sitka. But that’s not the end of the story. It was during the castaways’ miserable stay, around Dec. 10, 1808, when snow started to fall. The party decided to build a

Peninsula Voices Christmas cards Regarding the PDN Peninsula Poll on sending Christmas cards [asked online Nov. 23-24; results published Nov. 26]. I was both saddened and disappointed to find that of those participating, 30.6 percent do not send Christmas cards; 27.3 percent send fewer than 10 cards; and, 19.3 percent send fewer than 25 cards. I find it hard to believe that more than 75 percent of those voting [1,263] send 25 cards or fewer or none at all. Folks, there is nothing to match the fun of receiving a Christmas card — no, a ton of Christmas cards — from those whom we love, friends and longlost acquaintances. That is a part of the Christmas spirit, yet we are losing it. Economics? Come on: Once a year you send a card to someone you don’t get to see during the year, a special friend or neighbor. That cannot be too economically hard. A box of 40 cards can be bought for less than $20, with an additional $18 for postage. As an added bonus, you would also be helping out the financially strapped post office.

cabin on the upper Hoh River. To commemorate their ordeal, the Association of Washington Generals sought donated land near the Hoh Rain Forest believed to be at or near the original location where the Russian survivors took refuge. Forks businessman Bill Sperry coordinated the memorial project. The structure has been completed, and a future dedication ceremony is planned. Chris Cook, editor of the weekly Forks Forum, has done extensive research on the story of the SV Nikolai and its connection to Cook’s former home of Hawaii. It is Cook’s hope that somewhere in some West End resident’s attic are some of the pieces of the wrecked Nikolai. The book Women to Reckon

How well I remember the days when we would receive more than a hundred cards, many from people with whom we have lost touch. What a magnificent feeling. Come on, you 30.6 percent: You can think of someone to send a card to. You in the 27.3 percent can surely think of a few more people to bring a smile to. The rest of you? Let’s rekindle that special part of the Christmas spirit and send someone a card this year. Sending is fun, and receiving is a joy unmatched. Jim Shelley, Sequim

B Seahawks

Pirates to face another pro team Peninsula men hosting ABA’s Rampage tonight PENINSULA DAILY NEWS


Seattle quarterback Russell WIlson, right, walks off the field with head coach Pete Carroll after the Seahawks’ overtime over the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

Wilson Rookie of the Year? THE LEGION OF those skeptical of Russell Wilson lost a coach Sunday. With just under four minutes to John play at Soldier McGrath Field in Chicago, Lovie Smith turned the game over to his vaunted but vulnerable Bears defense. Smith figured a rookie quarterback, whose team always seems to find a way to lose close games on the road, would be overwhelmed by the challenge of leading the Seattle Seahawks on a touchdown drive. Smith was so convinced of Wilson’s inability to make crunch-time plays that he pulled the plug on his own veteran quarterback, Jay Cutler. Facing a third-and-21 situation at the Chicago 45-yard line, aware of a potential field-goal opportunity on fourth down, Smith called for a lowrisk, low-reward handoff to running back Matt Forte. It gained 7 yards, inside Seahawks territory but well beyond the range of kicker Robbie Gould. No matter, Smith reasoned. Better to punt and go to work on the runt. Bad idea, Lovie. Wilson went into two-minute drill mode with a poise Seahawks coach Pete Carroll later would call “exquisite.” The rookie completed six passes for 80 yards. He picked up 19 more yards on a pair of scrambles. He hooked up with tight end Zach Miller on a fourth-and-3, movethe-chains-or-lose chance at midfield, and then he delivered the ball into the hands of playmakers Sidney Rice and Golden Tate. Tate shredded three tacklers en route to the 14-yard touchdown that should have sealed a victory.

Peninsula head coach Lance Von Vogt said the difficult non-conference schedule is aimed at preparing his team, which has 12 new players this year, to make another championship run. “When I released my nonconference schedule many other coaches thought I had lost my mind,” Von Vogt said.

“Scheduling professionalleague teams for regular season games is not the normal thing to do, but I have confidence in my recruits and I want them to play against the toughest competition we can find. “In my mind, it is the only way we can reach our full potential.” The young Pirates are 2-2 on the season, with wins over Peninsula College alumni and the Washington Athletic Club, which featured many former NCAA Division I standouts.

Ah, but this was a road game, where anything can happen to the Seahawks. Anything did. The defense lost track of Brandon Marshall, the Bears main deep threat — actually, their only deep threat — putting Gould in range for the field goal that assured overtime. The first possession in overtime gave Wilson another chance to showcase his incalculable football acumen. He completed four passes for 38 yards, and gained 28 more yards on three keepers, and when the Bears defense finally put a knockout punch on Rice, it was too late. The ball had crossed the plane of the end zone. Game over. Between Smith’s decision to play it smug on third-and-21 and Rice’s touchdown in overtime, Cutler threw one pass. It was a monster, and revealed why the dour-faced quarterback is such a valuable commodity in Chicago, but no quarterback can move an offense without the ball. TO


Both of Peninsula’s losses occurred over the weekend in the inaugural First Federal Pirate Classic. On Friday, the hot-shooting Blue Angels (15 three pointers made) took advantage of an uneven effort by the Pirates to win 93-83. Saturday night, Peninsula battled toe-to-toe for 40 minutes with the undefeated and 5th-ranked ABA team, the Seattle Mountaineers, before succumbing 80-76. TURN

Peyton Manning, shown handing off to Ronnie Hillman, has turned the Broncos into a legitimate Super Bowl contender in his first season in Denver.

Unless you’re part of the Manning family and hoping for a hometown reunion with Eli, Peyton and their teams in New Orleans, there’s little reason now to make Super Bowl reservations. With a quarter of the schedule remaining, there’s no way to pick a favorite for the Lombardi Trophy. Not even the two teams with 11-1 records, the Falcons and Texans, or Eli Manning’s Giants or Peyton’s Broncos. TURN



Heisman finalists: Manziel, Te’o, Klein Johnny Manziel vying to be first freshman to win BY RALPH D. RUSSO THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel is the frontrunner to win this year’s Heisman trophy.

NEW YORK — Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o and Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein are the finalists for the Heisman Trophy. The three players invited to attend the presentation ceremony in New York were announced Monday on ESPN. Manziel is the favorite to win college football’s most famous player of the year award on Saturday night in Manhattan.

College Football He would be the first freshman to win the Heisman and the first Texas A&M player since halfback John David Crow won the school’s only Heisman in 1957. The closest a freshman has come to winning the Heisman was Adrian Peterson of Oklahoma in 2004, when he finished second to Southern California quarterback Matt Leinart. Peterson was a true freshman. Manziel is a redshirt freshman, meaning he attended school last year and practiced with the team but did not play in a game. TURN

A-Rod needs hip surgery, will miss season’s start THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Alex Rodriguez will start the season in what’s become a familiar place: the disabled list. The New York Yankees said Monday the third baseman will have surgery on his left hip, an injury that could sideline him until the All-Star break and may explain his spectacularly poor performance during the playoffs. “It’s a significant blow,” Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said. “But we’ve dealt

with significant blows and, hopefully, we’ll be able to deal with this one, as well.” A 14-time All-Star and baseball’s priciest player at $275 million, Rodriguez has a torn labrum, bone impingement and a cyst. He will need four to six weeks of physical therapy to strengthen the hip before surgery, and the team anticipates he will be sidelined four to six months after the operation. This will be Rodriguez’s sixth trip to the disabled list in six seasons. A-Rod had right hip surgery

on March 9, 2009, and returned that May 8. “It is a more complicated surgery with a longer recovery time because there is a little bit more that needs to be done,” Cashman said, citing the bone impingement. “I don’t think it’s age related. Butt at the same time, the older you are, the slower you’re going to recover regardless. But the bottom line and the message I’ve been receiving is that this is a solvable issue.” Rodriguez, who turns 38 in

July, complained to manager Joe Girardi of a problem with his right hip the night Raul Ibanez pinch hit for him — and hit a tying ninth-inning home run — against Baltimore during Game 3 of the AL division series in October. He went to New York-Presbyterian Hospital’s emergency room and was checked out then. “Up to this point, there was no complaints of any nature at all from his hip, or anything really,” Cashman said. “At that point Joe went to Alex in the dugout and

said, ‘I’m going to pinch hit for you and we’re going to pinch hit Ibanez,’ and Alex said to Joe at that moment, ‘OK,’ he said, ‘I’ve got to talk to you about something. I think my right hip needs to be looked at. I just don’t feel like I’m firing on all cylinders.’” Cashman said the test on the right hip “was clean” and the left hip was not examined. “I can tell you if a patient shows up in the emergency room with a complaint, they’re going to focus on where the complaint is, not something else,” he said.

Chiefs begin picking up pieces after heartache THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs returned to work Monday at their practice facility near Arrowhead Stadium, trying to find a sense of normalcy after two days of unimaginable heartache. It proved nearly impossible to do. The locker that once belong to Jovan Belcher, the linebacker who killed his girlfriend and then turned the gun on himself Saturday, still had all his belongings in it. His shoes were piled up on the floor and freshly laundered clothes hung from a hook. Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel and general manager Scott Pioli had to walk past the place in the parking lot where Belcher put the gun to his head and pulled the trigger to enter the building, and Crennel admitted to an unsettling

feeling that came over him. Teammates gathered in meetings and to watch film from Sunday’s emotional 27-21 victory over the Carolina Panthers, one that ended an eight-game losing streak. They couldn’t help but notice the empty seat that once belonged to their close friend. “We have to deal with the events of the last few days, and it’s not over, and it may not be over for some of us for most of our lives, but time heals all wounds, and so we’re going to start working on the time thing,” said Crennel, who’s been a rock for everyone in the organization. “It was like coming to work like you normally do,” he said. “Now you think about the events as you walk through the door and walk through the parking lot, but you know the events are over, and you can’t undo them. All you can do is work for the future and

toward the future.” So that’s what the Chiefs attempted to do on Monday. They gathered for their normal team meetings in the morning, and watched video of their win over Carolina. They broke midafternoon to begin planning for next Sunday’s game at Cleveland.

Not the same Still, there were signs at every turn that nothing was quite as usual. Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt routinely sticks around the day after a game, but this time he was there to lend support to an organization in mourning. Chaplains were also at the facility, as were outside counselors brought in to help players and staff come to grips with tragedy. “Its new territory for everyone,” tight end Tony Moeaki said. “We’re all trying to figure out how

to handle the situation. We’re just trying to take it one day at a time, come into meetings — it’s nice to be in meetings, watching film. Your mind’s not on it as much.” Linebacker Brandon Siler said he spent Thanksgiving with Belcher, and “it was Thanksgiving as you know it, all laughs and praying and loving.” “It was hard to walk back in the parking lot, but it was harder to sit in the meetings,” Siler said. “He sits right beside me. That was hard. You keep looking at that seat, thinking he was going to show up at some time, you know? That’s hard.”

Trying to understand Players were also struggling to reconcile the man they knew with the man who murdered 22-yearold Kasandra M. Perkins, and who left a 3-year-old girl, Zoey, an orphan.

“I try not to do it, really,” right tackle Eric Winston said. “I just try to accept the fact who he was pre, and who he was after, and I’m not sure those thoughts can live together, but until the end of the season, that’s just going to have to do.” Yes, there is still a season to be played. The Chiefs visit the Browns on Sunday and visit Oakland the following week, before returning home to play Indianapolis. Their season finale is Dec. 30 at Denver. “It’s something that there is no textbook on how to handle, and how to feel, and there’s a lot of emotions, confusing emotions,” center Ryan Lilja said. “But we’re going to try to get back to football as best we can, and let guys grieve whatever way they need to, and be respectful of that, but we need to try to be back on football, and it’s going to be tough.”

Cards not naming QB TEMPE, Ariz. — Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt won’t commit to naming a starting quarterback for next Sunday’s game at Seattle. The embattled coach, whose team has lost eight in a row, says he needs to review the video of Sunday’s 7-6 loss to the New York Jets before making a decision. Rookie Ryan Lindley made his second NFL start, completing 10 of 31 passes for just 72 yards, 23 of them on the second play of the game. Arizona had just five first downs and was 0 for 15 on third-down conversions.

No. 2 Alabama in the BCS championship game on Jan. 7 in Miami. Klein would be the first player from Kansas State to win the Heisman. He seemed to be the front-runner for several weeks until Manziel’s late push. When Klein threw three interceptions in the Wildcats’ late-season loss to Baylor, Manziel moved to the front of the race. Klein is a multitalented quarterback like Manziel,

but with a different approach. The 6-5, 226-pound senior is a bullish runner who scored 22 touchdowns and threw for 15 more, while leading the seventhranked Wildcats (11-1) to the Big 12 title. Earlier in the day, Klein won the Johnny Unitas Award given to the top senior quarterback in the nation. Kansas State plays Oregon in the Fiesta Bowl.

NFL: Most teams have strengths, weaknesses CONTINUED FROM B1 While there has been significant separation between the haves and the have-nots in the NFL — three division races are over and only the NFC North has no odds-on choice among the undecided sectors — none of the top teams presents overwhelming credentials for winning it all. Several teams are trending upward, most notably the Broncos with a sevengame winning streak and the Patriots, who always begin peaking in November and December. Atlanta just about has home-field advantage in the NFC, and Houston would pretty much secure it in the AFC if it wins at New England on Monday night. So that makes them the top contenders, right? Not necessarily. “Well, there’s different championships,” Broncos coach John Fox said. “Your division is obviously one, everybody aspires to be in the conference championship, but at the end of the day, everybody is looking for that world championship.

“It’s a great accomplishment, a tribute to the staff and coaches in that locker room. They did a fantastic job. “We still have a whole quarter of the season left. We’ll see what happens.”

ture. But the Broncos also are a developing team, a much improved one since the beginning of the season, yet still a work in progress. Getting that work done in the next two months could be a rush job.

Peyton’s comeback What has been happening in Denver is encouraging because the Broncos (9-3) have been winning in a variety of ways. Yes, Manning remains the key to Denver’s first Super Bowl trip since his current boss, John Elway, retired after the 1998 title season. Throughout his remarkable comeback year after missing 2011 because of neck surgery, Manning has become more comfortable and familiar with his targets, his blockers and his running backs. That bodes well for the winter rush toward the Big Easy. So does having a solid, physically imposing defense with a dynamic, big-play leader (linebacker Von Miller) and other playmakers. Throw in strong special teams and it’s a nice mix-

Patriots back again

“As a coach I think we’re always going to sit here and tell you that we’re trying to improve every week and that’s our goal,” defensive coordinator Matt Patricia said, noting his units have gotten stingier. “Certainly as the season goes on and people play together longer and are out there with each other longer, then hopefully that’s what’s taking place.” Houston revived its dominant, ball-hawking defense Sunday at Tennessee and has more balance than any AFC team. It also has little postseason experience, some injury concerns that have tested its depth and very little behind Andre Johnson at wide receiver. Defenses often can shut down one brilliant receiver in the playoffs with double and even triple coverage. Baltimore (9-3) probably will hold on in the AFC North, but its warts have shown for a while, especially the last two weeks in a tight escape over San Diego and a home loss to undermanned Pittsburgh.

New England was 5-3 in 2011, then won eight in a row, two playoff games at home, and lost to the Giants for the championship. The Patriots (9-3) are on another roll and it would surprise nobody if they run the table, even though they have Houston and San Francisco coming up. Tom Brady, the only quarterback with 10 division crowns, is in the MVP conversation again. He has a formidable running game for once, and even with standout tight end Rob Gronkowski injured, Brady doesn’t lack for receivers. Any Patriots issues center on a defense that has been exceedingly inconsistent and, at times, patchwork. New England survived it a year ago, but the other AFC contenders gen- 49ers no lock erally are better offensively Many pegged San Frannow than last season.

cisco (8-3-1) as most likely to emerge from the NFC after the Niners manhandled the Bears and outplayed New Orleans with second-year quarterback Colin Kaepernick emerging. Then they stumbled against the Rams, a team that also outplayed the 49ers in a tie last month. That powerhouse defense is impressive, but might not be enough to carry San Francisco all the way. Coach Jim Harbaugh has placed his chips on Kaepernick over Alex Smith, hoping the addition of bigplay potential and fast feet will complement a nasty D.

Falcons failed in past With the road to the Super Bowl almost certainly heading through Atlanta, which is 6-0 at home, the Falcons might look like a good bet. Remember, however, that they went 13-3 and were the conference’s top seed two years ago, yet went out meekly against Green Bay in their first playoff game. Until quarterback Matt Ryan, coach Mike Smith

and a previously questionable defense come through in the postseason, there will be serious doubts about the Falcons.

Limping to finish The Packers and Bears need to get healthy to have any shot, but instead they keep seeing more players head to the infirmary. Green Bay has enough passing offense, Chicago has enough rugged defense. As for their other units, who knows? Particularly with so many injuries. That leaves the juicy prospect that if Peyton Manning can get there, younger brother Eli and the Giants will be waiting. The Giants sprang to life even later in 2011 — in the final two weeks of the season — and have the key elements every contender desires: a winner at quarterback, strong pass rushers, a variety of playmakers and experience. Then again, with no clear favorites in what has been an unusual NFL season, leave open the unprecedented possibility of two wild-card teams making their way to the Superdome in February.

B4 $ Briefly . . . Jones adviser at Palm Beach conference SEQUIM — Financial adviser Cheryl Gray of Edward Jones was invited to attend Barron’s Winner’s Circle Top Women Advisors Summit held in Palm Beach, Fla., on Nov. 28-30. This conference, created to enhance the professional development of those who work with individual investors, represents the nation’s top women financial advisers, as well as industry decision-makers. “It was such an honor to attend the summit and network with financial advisers who share the same focus,” Gray said. “I am excited to share what I’ve learned.” The conference included workshops led by the women advisers named in Barron’s June 2 issue as the top practitioners in their field.




For the past three years on Nov. 30, First Responders Appreciation Day, the Sequim Association of Realtors and its afficiliates have made dozens of cookies and delivered them to law enforcement/fire/EMT members. With the gifts this year are, from left, Cindy Smith of Clallam Title, Sheryl Burley of Windermere East, Kathi Larsen of First Federal, EMTs David Copeland, Forest Hietpas and Michael Stroobant, and Heidi Hansen, Realtors association president.

Clashes on Internet rules mark Dubai telecom meet U.S. groups opposing restrictions THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — The head of the U.N.’s telecommunication overseers sought Monday to quell worries about possible moves toward greater Internet controls during global talks in Dubai, but any attempts for increased Web regulations are likely to face stiff opposition from groups led by a major U.S. delegation. The 11-day conference — seeking to update codes last reviewed when the Web was virtually unknown — highlights the fundamental shift from tightly managed telecommunications networks to the borderless sweep of the Internet. But others at the Dubai conference — including a 123-member U.S. delegation with envoys from tech giants such as Google and Microsoft — worry that any new U.N. oversight on the Internet security could be used by nations such as China and Russia to justify further tightening of Web blocks and monitoring. “Love the free and open Internet? Tell the world’s governments to keep it that way,” said a message on the main search page of Google. com with a link for comments directed to the Dubai conference. The Dubai gathering will confront questions that

BLYN — North Olympic Crime Stoppers recently received a $2,500 donation from the Jamestown S’Klallam tribe. These funds will support Crime Stoppers’ efforts, which pay rewards for tips that Allen have led to an arrest and filing of felony charges for crimes occurring in Jefferson and Clallam counties. With this donation, Jamestown S’Klallam Tribal Chairman Ron Allen shared that he wanted to challenge other businesses, organizations and the public to donate funds so that Crime Stoppers can continue to assist local law enforcement through the use of anonymous tips. Donations are welcomed and can be sent to NOCS 321 E. Fifth St., Port Angeles, WA 98362.

Pasco hay storage THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Attendees at the World Conference on International Telecommunication listen to Hamdoun Toure, Secretary General of the U.N. International Telecommunication Union, on Monday in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. include how much sway the U.N. can exert over efforts such as battling cybercrimes and expanding the Internet into developing nations. The secretary-general of the U.N. International Telecommunications Union, Hamadoun Toure, said that accusations about how the meeting could limit Web freedoms are “completely untrue” and predicted only “light-touch” regulations. “Many countries will come to reaffirm their desire to see freedom of expression embedded in this conference,” he told reporters on the meeting’s opening day. But the outcome of the Dubai gathering is far from certain.

The 193 nations at the meeting have put forward more than 900 proposed regulatory changes covering the Internet, mobile roaming fees and satellite and fixed-line communications. Broad consensus is needed for any item to be adopted for any changes — the first major review of the U.N.’s telecommunications agenda since 1988, well before the Internet age.

‘Great Firewall’ The gathering is also powerless to force nations to change their Internet policies, such as China’s notorious “Great Firewall” and widespread blackouts of political opposition sites in places including Iran and the Gulf Arab states. Last week, Syria’s Internet and telephone services disappeared for two days

during some of the worst fighting in months to hit the capital, Damascus. The head of the U.S. delegation in Dubai, Ambassador Terry Kramer, said last week in Washington that all efforts should be made to avoid a “Balkanization” of the Internet in which each country would impose its own rules and standards that could disrupt the flow of commerce and information. “That opens the door . . . to content censorship,” he said. The International Trade Union Confederation, representing labor groups in more than 150 countries, claimed a bloc that includes China, Russia and several Middle East nations seeks to “pave the way for future restrictions on both internet content or its users.”

PASCO — A Japanese company is investing $14 million in expanding a hay storage and cubing operation at the Port of Pasco’s industrial park. The company, Zen-Noh Hay, ships compressed hay cubes to dairy and beef cattle farmers in Asia. Port Director Jim Toomey said alfalfa hay is a major export crop. About a third of the state’s hay is exported, mostly to Asia.

News chief leaving LONDON — Tom Mockridge, the chief executive of Rupert Murdoch’s British newspapers who was sent in to steady an organization swamped in scandal, is leaving at the end of the year. Mockridge was appointed CEO of News International in July 2011, following the resignation of Rebekah Brooks in the wake of the phone hacking scandal at the defunct Sunday tabloid, News of the World. He is leaving to pursue outside opportunities, parent company News Corp. said Sunday. Mockridge joined News Corp. in Australia in 1991, and headed the Sky Italia broadcasting operation in Italy from 2003 to 2011. News Corp. Chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch said that Mockridge’s “decision to step down is absolutely and entirely his own.” The conglomerate announced plans this

GrainCorp. offer NEW YORK — Agribusiness conglomerate Archer Daniels Midland Co. is increasing its buyout offer for GrainCorp by almost 4 percent and disclosed it has already added to its stake in the Australian grain handler. Under the revised bid disclosed Monday, it would cost ADM about $2.33 billion to buy the rest of the Australian company. ADM said it owns 19.9 percent of GrainCorp Ltd., up from 14.9 percent when it made its first acquisition bid in October. ADM has said that it wants to invest in overseas suppliers. Australia is a major exporter of many commodities, from minerals such as iron ore to agricultural goods like wheat.

Rock Hall CEO CLEVELAND — The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland has hired a new president and CEO from within its leadership ranks. Vice president of development since 2008, Gregory Harris, was announced Harris Monday as president and CEO. Harris, 47, joined the Rock Hall from the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, N.Y., where he was vice president of development.

Fun ’n’ Advice






DEAR ABBY: My wife and I have a friend, “Cara,” who lives in another state. It’s not a very reciprocal friendship. Cara calls us frequently but wants to talk only about her problems, which are never-ending. When she visits, she demands our full attention at all times. Frankly, we find her exhausting and would like to cut her out of our lives. Our worry is that we are some of the few friends Cara has left. She has alienated most of her other friends as well as her parents, sometimes over trivial matters. We know she’s depressed and has emotional issues, and we suspect she may have a mental illness. She has been suicidal in the past but now refuses to see her therapist. We’re worried that if we don’t continue serving as her talk therapy — which we find draining — Cara might become so depressed she’ll hurt herself. How do we extricate ourselves from this relationship while still doing the right thing? Worn Out But Worried in Chicago
