Brinnon resort plan looks at environment


PORT HADLOCK — In 1981, Greg Kerkof and Sheryl Alfson-Kerkof stopped off at Horatio’s for a drink on their way home from a guitar lesson in north Seattle. Discussing their lack of success in finding the sailboat of their dreams, they started sketching plans on a cocktail napkin. Three decades later, they are living at the Port Hadlock Marina aboard their dream boat, the Toccata. They designed and built it from the deck up — meaning that, with a few exceptions, everything on the boat was made from scratch by the owners, from the bow fittings to the bathtub. “We built it,” Greg Kerkof said. “We didn’t buy it.” In case you want to try this at home, consider that Greg is a skilled woodworker who worked for Boeing as an aircraft mechanic and in engineering. Sheryl was lead X-ray technician at the University of Washington Medical Center.

3 residents, dogs flee furnace fire PENINSULA DAILY NEWS


Firefighters respond to a fire in which flames spread through the house’s heating system. Three people were left homeless.


QUILCENE — Three people are homeless after a fire spread through the heating system of their house at 323 Cougar Run Road the day after Christmas. The three adults and their three dogs all safely evacuated the home where the fire was reported at 2:30 p.m. Monday, said Fire Chief Bob Herbst of the Quilcene Fire Department on Tuesday. The fire was extinguished about an hour later. Damage was kept to a minimum, Herbst said. “They didn’t lose any of their belongings,” he said. “The damage was contained to the furnace itself.” The home sustained moderate smoke damage, Herbst said. Because of the loss of the heating system, it was not habitable and the occupants, who were not identified, were referred to the

Olympic Peninsula Chapter of the American Red Cross. The fire started in the home’s heating furnace and was spreading through the ductwork under the floor, when firefighters arrived, Herbst said. Firefighters controlled the fire by closing the doors to the rooms and the heating vent covers. That kept the fire from spreading, Herbst said. Chief Moe Moser, incident commander, said the quick thinking of the homeowner to shut off the home’s electrical power and the prudent use of a dry-chemical fire extinguisher slowed the fire and prevented a potential total loss of the home. The Quilcene Fire Department was assisted by Port Ludlow Fire & Rescue and a chief officer from the Brinnon Fire Department.

Newsmakers Celebrity scoop ■ By The Associated Press

Fake People cover outs ‘Twilight’ star A FAKED PEOPLE magazine cover on which Taylor Lautner supposedly announces he’s “out and proud” ricocheted across the Internet Monday, tricking fans and even celebrities like Russell Simmons. The digitally altered image of the purported Jan. 7, 2012, People issue shows the “Twilight” star announcing he’s gay and “tired of the rumors.” The fake cover goes on to fake-quote Lautner as saying his decision to come out has left him feeling “more liberated and happier than I’ve ever been.” While the Internet was abuzz, celebrities like Def Jam’s Simmons even fell prey to the hoax, tweeting Taylor a congratulatory tweet: “proud of Taylor Lautner for his bravery and his courage.” Once realizing the mistake, Simmons tweeted, “disappointed that people would joke about someone coming out about their sexuality. Let Taylor Lautner be whoever he wants to be . . . .” A representative for People magazine confirmed the cover a hoax to Gossip Cop, saying the cover is “absolutely fake.”

Her longtime assistant, Maureen St. Onge, said Ms. Frankenthaler died after a long illness but gave no other details. Known as a second-generation Abstract Expressionist, Ms. Frankenthaler was married during the movement’s heyday to the painter Robert Motherwell, a leading first-generation member of the group. But she departed from the first

generation’s romantic search for the “sublime” to pursue her own path. Refining a technique, developed by Jackson Pollock, of pouring pigment directly onto canvas laid on the floor, Ms. Frankenthaler developed a method of painting best known as Color Field. Her staining method emphasized the flat surface over illusory depth, and it called attention to the very nature of paint on canvas, a concern of artists and critics at the time. It also brought a new open airiness to the painted surface and was credited with releasing color from the gestural approach and romantic rhetoric of Abstract Expressionism.

A3 Briefly: Nation Democratic Sen. Ben Nelson says he’ll retire LINCOLN, Neb. — Democratic Sen. Ben Nelson of Nebraska has told his supporters that he will retire instead of seeking a third term next year. Nelson said in a Tuesday statement, “Simply put: It is time to move on.” His decision comes as a blow to Democrats’ hopes of maintaining control of the Senate. Republicans need to net four seats to take back the Senate, and they’ve targeted Nelson’s seat as an opportunity. They said Nebraska has tilted to the right in recent years and think Nelson’s vote for President Barack Obama’s signature health care legislation would have weighed him down. Nelson still would have given Democrats a fighting chance.

Briefly: World Egyptian court bans military ‘virginity tests’ CAIRO — An Egyptian court Tuesday ordered the country’s military rulers to stop the use of “virginity tests” on female detainees, in a rare condemnation by a civilian tribunal of a military practice that has caused an uproar among activists and rights groups. The virginity test allegations first surfaced after a March 9 rally in Cairo’s Tahrir Square that turned violent when men in plainclothes attacked protesters, and the army cleared the square by force. The rights group Human Rights Watch said seven women were subjected to the tests. The ban came a week after public outrage over scenes of soldiers dragging women protesters by the hair, stomping on them and stripping one half-naked in the street during a fierce crackdown on activists.

NEW YORK — Sears Holdings Corp. plans to close between 100 and 120 Sears and Kmart stores to raise cash after a weak holiday shopping season for the retailer. The closings fueled speculation about whether the 125-year-old retailer can turn itself around. The closings are the latest and most visible in a long series of moves to try to fix a company that has struggled with falling sales and shabby stores as rivals like Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and Target Corp. spruced up their looks and turned into one-stop shopping sources. “There’s no reason to go to Sears,” said New York-based independent retail analyst Brian Sozzi. “It offers a depressing shopping experience and uncompetitive prices.” Billionaire investor Edward Lampert purchased Kmart out of bankruptcy in 2003 and bought Sears, Roebuck & Co. a year later. Since 2004 Sears Holdings — which operates both Kmart and Sears stores — has watched its cash and short-term investments go from about $2.09 billion for the year ended Jan. 31, 2004, to THE ASSOCIATED PRESS $1.34 billion for the year ended Jan. 31, 2011, according to FactSet.

Peninsula franchises OK PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

Two Sears stores in Port Angeles and Carlsborg will not be affected by the announced closure of 100 to 120 Sears stores nationwide, employees of those stores said Tuesday. The North Olympic Peninsula stores are franchises known as “hometown stores.” “It’s going to be the big retail stores. They are going to close,” said Sandi Frantz, an owner of the Port Angeles store at 520 S. Lincoln St. “We are doing fine,” she said. “We are having a good year.” The Sears store at 232 Valley Center Place also is staying put, salesman Robert Grey said. “None of the 900 hometown stores will be affected,” Grey said. “They haven’t decided what stores they are closing down yet,” he said. “Even the numbers are an estimation.”

part of the problem Sears is facing is that economic difficulties continue to grip its core customers. These middle-income shoppers have seen their wages fail to keep up with higher costs for household basics like food. But the bigger issue, analysts say, is that Sears hasn’t invested in remodeling, leaving its stores uninviting. Sears has yet to determine which stores will close but said it will post on when a final list is compiled. The company would not discuss how many, if any, jobs would be cut. The Hoffman Estates, Ill., company has more than 4,000 stores in the U.S. and Canada.

Trusted neighbor admits he dismembered 9-year-old girl THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

FORT WAYNE, Ind. — A babysitter and trusted neighbor has confessed that he bludgeoned a 9-year-old Indiana girl to death with a brick then dismembered her, hiding her head, hands and feet at a home where he was staying and dumping the rest of her remains nearby, police said Tuesday. Allen County sheriff’s investigators said in an affidavit that 39-year-old Michael Plumadore admits he killed Aliahna Lemmon on Thursday. According to the affidavit, Plumadore told police that after beating Aliahna to death on the front steps of the home in the early morning hours, he stuffed her body into trash bags and hid her in the freezer at the home in a rundown trailer park in

Fort Wayne. He said he later chopped up her body with a hacksaw and stuffed her remains into freezer bags. Authorities didn’t say Tuesday why Plumadore killed the child, but Sheriff Ken Fries said investigators had suspected Plumadore was involved since soon after she was reported missing Friday night. Investigators questioned him Friday and Saturday, and he was arrested Monday after being interviewed by detectives for several hours more. Fries said his long police career told him that Plumadore’s account of the girl’s disappearance had too many inconsistencies. A judge ordered Plumadore held without bail or bond at an initial hearing Tuesday, Sheriff’s

Department spokesman Cpl. Jeremy Tinkel said. He has yet to be formally charged in Aliahna’s death. Paulette Hair, 45, a former manager at the trailer park who lives at a nearby trailer park, said she never would have guessed Plumadore would kill a child. “But you don’t know a person, truly,” she said. Aliahna was a student at Holland Elementary School, said Fort Wayne school district spokeswoman Krista Stockman. She did not know what grade the girl was in. Aliahna and her two younger sisters were staying with Plumadore for about one week because their mother, Tarah Souders, had been sick with the flu.

In 2004 the Swain’s Inc. board of directors divided the company between the sisters. Gedlund became the sole owner of Swain’s General Store. Cable became co-owner with her husband, Dick, of two Swain’s outlets in Sequim and Port Townsend. Those stores were renamed Swain’s Outdoor. Blaming the poor economy and competition from “box stores,” Swain’s Outdoor in Sequim was closed in the summer of 2010. The Port Townsend store closed last February.

Resort: Wants 560 short-, 278 long-stay units pic Peninsula tourism industry leader said. “I’m just thrilled with it,” said Diane Shostak, executive director of the Olympic Peninsula Visitor Bureau, who has toured the site and followed the project since its genesis in 2006. “We are too tied together not to benefit from something of that magnitude in our neighborhood,” Shostak said, predicting resort visitors would travel to such destinations as Sequim and Olympic National Park. A DCD recommendation on the project will be included in the draft SEIS, Johnson said. His draft report will be reviewed internally within Community Development and, once released to the public, will go through a public comment period and state Environmental Policy Act review. Then it will be submitted to the county Planning Commission for a recommendation, which will forwarded to the county commissioners for final action.

CONTINUED FROM A1 Statesman is paying the county to create the draft SEIS, another point of contention with The Brinnon Group. Statesman wants to build 560 short-stay tourist units and 278 long-stay tourist units, 822 golf-resort residential units, an 18-hole golf course, 68 residential units in a “maritime village” that would include 51,000 square feet of commercial space, and a “golf resort” that would include 30,800-square-feet of commercial space. The site already includes 285-slip Pleasant Harbor Marina, which Statesman owns and which will be renovated in the project’s first phase of construction. “This is probably the best marina on Hood Canal,” marina co-manager Don Coleman said Tuesday, adding that the marina’s docks will be replaced. While Johnson expects legal challenges to the proposal, enough changes have been made, including establishment of 150-foot shoreline buffers, that a positive DCD recommendation is in sight, Johnson said. “There are people who want to stop it no matter what, but I don’t see anything that would really do that,” Johnson said.

Opposition A leader of The Brinnon Group is not impressed with even the idea of building a resort in the tiny, rural community. “There has been no SEIS, so all this is pie in the sky,” said Barbara Moore’lewis, who organized The Brinnon Group, and has lived in Brinnon since

Generation of heat and power derived from “cogeneration” systems fueled with biodiesel and power from the Mason County Public Utility District. In cogeneration, useful heat is generated along with electricity. “Waste heat” from equipment such as on-site generators will heat the resort’s spas and a new pool. Buildings at the site have been reconfigured so they create far less impervious surface, Mann said.

Port commissioner plans to vote â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;noâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on ferry grant Others say stand takes wrong view of panelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission


School called low performing Sequim Community struggling, according to new state list BY ARWYN RICE


PORT TOWNSEND â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A proposal for a passenger ferry between Seattle and Port Townsend could take another step toward fruition today when Port of Port Townsend commissioners consider accepting grant funding. But one of the three port commissioners says he will vote against the resolution to accept a $1.3 million grant from the federal Department of Transportation to build or purchase a boat for the route. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the last chance to stop the project,â&#x20AC;? said Dave Thompson, who represents District 2, on Tuesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would be nice if the other commissioners listened to reason,â&#x20AC;? he added. The meeting will begin at 1 p.m. at 375 Hudson St. As planned, the port would own the boat while its operation would be contracted to Puget Sound Express in Port Townsend.

Five criteria Thompson said that he and Port Director Larry Crockett attended a meeting in Seattle recently where five necessary criteria were cited for successful operation of a foot ferry. The points listed were a dedicated ridership, complete support of the community, no alternate route, twice the money needed for operation and a 50 percent


Port of Port Townsend Commissioner Dave Thompson, shown at his boat repair business at the Boat Haven, intends today to vote against accepting a $1.3 million federal grant. subsidy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This proposal doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fit any of the criteria,â&#x20AC;? Thompson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not feasible, since it will cost $1,000 in fuel for each round trip. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we should just give the money back.â&#x20AC;? For the grant to be declined, Thompson would have to persuade one of the other commissioners, John Collins or Leif Erickson, to agree with his position. Collins said on Tuesday that he â&#x20AC;&#x153;has found no reason to not vote to accept the money.â&#x20AC;? Erickson could not be reached for comment but has consistently supported the idea, said Jim Pivarnik, port deputy director. Thompson said he has

not voted against the various stages of the proposal because of Ericksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Collinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; position. His vote in opposition â&#x20AC;&#x153;would only be a gesture,â&#x20AC;? he said. The vote to decline the grant, however, is a gesture worth making, he said. Proponents of the ferry such as Crockett and Pivarnik are aware of Thompsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position, stating that his criteria does not apply to the proposal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Commissioner Thompson has been against this for years,â&#x20AC;? Pivarnik said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it will be good for the locals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He favors providing affordable public transportation to local people, which is not our purpose.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are using a different model, which is not to serve the locals but to bring tourists to Port Townsend.â&#x20AC;? If the resolution is approved, the port will schedule meetings with officials with the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce and government agencies as well with as the general public to determine what the boat and the service should include. Puget Sound Express, as operators of the service, would participate in the meetings. After the meetings, the port would put out a bid for the boatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s construction.

Begin August 2013 The service is scheduled to begin in August 2013 on an irregular schedule which would evolve in response to passenger reaction, the port has said. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting, which is the last for Collins before he leaves office, will be followed by a reception in his honor at 2:30 p.m. Collins, who chose to not run for re-election, will be replaced by Steve Tucker, who ran unopposed. Tucker has shown strong support for the passenger ferry project in the past, according to Pivarnik.

In October, a Sequim School District facilities committee released a report that describes the aging building housing the Sequim Community School as containing asbestos and failing heating systems, as well as old and outdated plumbing and inadequate insulation for energy efficiency. A more recent report said that fuel oil to heat the building soared in cost to nearly $61,000 during the past school year.

SEQUIM â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Sequimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Community School was included in a Department of Education list of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lowest-performing schools last week. State Superintendent Randy Dorn released a list of the lowest 5 percent of schools receiving or eligible to receive federal Title I funds that are identified as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;persistently lowestachieving schoolsâ&#x20AC;? in the state. Dorn said these schools donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the resources they need. This year, 57 schools from 38 districts were identified â&#x20AC;&#x201D; only one of them located on the North Olympic Peninsula. Sequim Community School houses specialized district and community programs for children, students and adults. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As far as state assessment, we house the Olympic Peninsula Academy, which consists of approximately 75 students, and the Alternative High School, which consists of approximately 30 students,â&#x20AC;? Vince Riccobene, district director of instruction, said in a statement Tuesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The staff works to create improvement plans annually to ensure the kids are receiving the same high level instruction as other kids.â&#x20AC;? The school was considered for closure by the Sequim School Board earlier this year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but that was because of the cost of repairing or remodeling the 1950s era structure on West Alder Street. School board members were told that it would cost $3 million to demolish and rebuild the structure, or $200,000 to $300,000 to remodel the 71,000-squarefoot structure so it can still be used temporarily, with improved energy efficiency and other upgrades. As a Title I school, Sequim Community School is eligible for federal school improvement grants meant to help struggling schools.

put out this list,â&#x20AC;? Dorn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But that law was also based on the assumption that schools would receive more funding in order to improve,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To me, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s completely unfair to call out these schools without giving them additional resources, but that is the world we live in now.â&#x20AC;? The process of identifying the schools began in 2010, with the introduction of the federal School Improvement Grants. That year, the 47 named schools were given a chance to apply for grants ranging from $50,000 to $2 million. As a state, Washington received $17 million. Dorn said that of the 57 schools, only four have fewer than 50 percent of students receiving free or reduced-price lunches.

SARC to extend its hours, lower fees BY JEFF CHEW PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

SEQUIM — The Sequim Aquatic Recreation Center will be open longer and cost less for at least the first six months of 2012. General admission to the center at 610 N. Fifth Ave. will be $8 for adults, $4 for youths and free for children 2 and younger. Now, daily fees are $10 for adults, $5 for youth and $2.25 for children 7 and younger. Come Sunday, the hours will change as well: 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday. Now, the center is open from 5:45 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. “This is going to be a trial period of at least six months to monitor the response of the pass holders,” said Susan Sorenson, SARC board president. “People have been saying that they want to be open earlier on the weekends.” SARC will mark the changes on New Year’s Day with a “free admission day” intended to get people in

Sorenson said if a senior attends SARC three times a week that figures out at $2.55 a visit. The adult monthly passes will be $50.83 and youth will be $25.52. SARC now has about 2,500 pass holders.

on the Sequim High School campus and operated in the summers only until 1984. With the community outgrowing the small outdoor pool, a bond was proposed to build an indoor facility in 1980. It failed, but in September 1984, voters approved by 62 percent of the vote a $2.4 million bond to be paid over 20 years. Five acres of land were purchased and Cedar Ridge Construction of Port Angeles was hired to construct the Sequim Aquatic Recreation Center, since known as SARC. Charter passes were sold to generate enough operating revenue to open the doors in March 1988. Charter pass holders were promised their passes would never increase in price, although over the years it became necessary to apply state taxes to the cost of the charter passes. In the earlier years, the district had to depend on tax levies to augment the revenues generated by patron usage. The goal of the district has always been to become as close to self-supporting as possible while serving

the widest spectrum of the community, SARC leaders said. After the failure of a property tax levy in November 2002, the district raised prices and restructured operations to strive for operation completely independent of tax subsidies of any kind.

No taxpayer funds The district now receives no funds from the taxpayers. In January 2003, with no levy funds, SARC offered a premier pass to bring in additional operating revenue. The premier pass offered no price increase for 10 years provided that the pass be kept current over the 10-year period. The original building bond was paid off in December 2004. It is believed that this district is the only park and recreation district in the state able to successfully operate independent of tax subsidies of any kind.

King tides to wash through Puget Sound this week PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

OLYMPIA — Higherthan-usual winter tides are being seen in Puget Sound through Thursday. The tides, referred to as “king tides,” occurred along the Strait of Juan de Fuca and on the Pacific Coast last week, the state Department of Ecology said. They will return to the Strait Jan. 18-22 and the


Pacific coast Jan. 19-24. In the Puget Sound, which includes Hood Canal, they began Tuesday and will be seen through Thursday, then return Jan. 13-17. These higher-than-usual tides occur when the sun and moon’s gravitational pull reinforce one another, Ecology said. The department is inviting members of the public to share their photos of the

of how rising sea levels from global climate change could affect the state’s coastal areas, Ecology said. As global temperatures rise, the oceans warm slightly and expand, ice caps and glaciers melt, and more precipitation falls as rain instead of snow, it said. This causes sea levels to rise and could affect Washington’s marine areas by intensifying flooding, espe-

cially during high tides and major storms; shifting coastal beaches inland; increasing coastal bluff erosion; endangering houses and other structures such as roads, seawalls and utilities that are built near the shore; or threatening coastal freshwater and connected underground water supplies.

Horse pulls a high, fast one on boy, owner MY GOLDIE BOY caught me napping Saturday. The Welsh pony, who turns 31 in a few months, showed me the need to always be cautious even with an older, normally wellbehaved horse. Friend “Z” Barker was over, and we were watching her kids, Antigony and Ashtin, ride my ponies Snowball Express and Goldie Boy when the usually placid Goldie decided to run and buck when Ashtin urged him into a trot. At his age, Goldie usually requires much goading just to go from a walk to a trot. It was just two years ago that the pony barely wanted to walk, let alone trot. You see, he’d lost a lot of weight quickly that winter and was quite lethargic. A visit from the veterinarian revealed his teeth were worn to nubs, so he was unable to chew up his hay enough to swallow and digest it. And he likely had Cushing’s disease. Cushing’s is a problem of the pituitary gland. The classic Cushing’s case is an old, skinny, hairy horse that grows a long, wavy hair coat year-round. As was the case with Goldie, intermittent front limb stiffness also can be seen.

More than aging Many people unwittingly believe that their horses are just getting older. As I found out, in reality, these horses often are sick. To combat the problem, the

vet put Goldie on pergolid. Since I have shelters and not separate stalls I also pulled him out of the pasture and into my backyard so he could eat slowly and in peace, away from my three

other horses. I then started a regimen of twice-daily feedings of alfalfa cubes with oats in it, Strategy’s Healthy Edge (which I supplement all my horses with) and, since the backyard grass is dormant in winter, I throw him a bit of hay to keep him occupied. Ideally, I should cut the hay into smaller strands, but I don’t always take the time to do so. The good news is, well, you can see by the photo that Goldie is now a robust, energetic pony who momentarily resorted to days of his youth. Goldie had just turned 17 when he came into my family’s life to become my then-6-year-old niece Brooke Stromberg’s pony. The only real problem Brooke had with Goldie was he would thrust his head down to eat grass all the time. His head and neck muscles were too strong for Brooke, so he’d just go wherever he wanted to eat, including through trees and brush that would scare the little lass.

My neighbor at the time, a young Jeannie Wolf Johnson, showed us how to get Goldie under Brooke’s control by weaving hay twine through his bridle and securing to the saddle horn. That way, he couldn’t put his head down to eat. Success! Later, I found I didn’t need the twine when I used a Martha Josey low-port shank bit with rope noseband, a system that he’s still comfortable with and that works well on him today. I have to say that’s been the only problem we’ve had with Gold. Until Ashtin’s ride, I have never seen him buck, or even attempt to buck. He’s always been kind and trustworthy on the ground and in the saddle.

The past An interesting bit of history about Goldie: Last year, I rode with the Peninsula Chapter of Back Country Horsemen on a ride that started at Jennifer Reandeau’s place in Joyce. There, I heard she used to raise Welsh ponies. Though I’d acquired Goldie from a family in Port Angeles that had owned him for six years, I thought, “Hmm . . . I wonder if she knew Goldie.” I asked her, but she didn’t think so. Still, I went home and looked at Goldie’s registration papers. Sure enough, Jennifer had owned him. So I emailed Jennifer a photo. Sure enough, she’d bought him as a youngster and used him

Apparently, he’s sired several foals which are still alive and kicking. Her memories came flooding back to her, and she exclaimed, “But he was the worst horse I’ve ever gone to break! Took him forever to get the hang of it — he just kept bucking and bucking!” Well, I guess Goldie was feeling so good Saturday, he thought he was a young stud again. It was good to see, but a bit unnerving for Ashtin. The boy rode him

Research fee for medical effectiveness due in â&#x20AC;&#x2122;12 BY RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Starting in 2012, the government will charge a new fee to your health insurance plan for research to find out which drugs, medical procedures, tests and treatments work best. But what will Americans do with the answers? The goal of the research, part of a little-known provision of President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health care law, is to answer such basic questions as whether that new prescription drug advertised on TV really works better than an old generic costing much less. But in the politically charged environment surrounding health care, the idea of medical effectiveness research is eyed with suspicion. The insurance fee could be branded a tax and drawn into the vortex of electionyear politics. The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a quasi-governmental agency created by Congress to carry out the research â&#x20AC;&#x201D; has yet to commission a single head-tohead comparison, although its director is anxious to begin.

$1 per person in 2012 The government is already providing the institute with some funding: The $1-per-person insurance fee goes into effect in 2012. But the Treasury Department said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not

likely to be collected for another year, though insurers would still owe the money. The fee doubles to $2 per covered person in its second year and thereafter rises with inflation.

Guidance in 6 months The IRS is expected to issue guidance to insurers within the next six months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The more concerning thing is not the institute itself, but how the findings will be used in other areas,â&#x20AC;? said Kathryn Nix, a policy analyst for the conservative Heritage Foundation think tank. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Will they be used to make coverage determinations?â&#x20AC;?

Who makes decisons? The instituteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director, Dr. Joe Selby, said patients and doctors will make the decisions, not his organization. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are not a policymaking body; our role is to make the evidence available,â&#x20AC;? said Selby, a primary care physician and medical researcher, But insurance industry representatives said they expect to use the research and work with employers to fine-tune workplace health plans. Employees and family members could be steered to hospitals and doctors who follow the most effective treatment methods. Patients going elsewhere could face higher copayments, similar to added charges they now pay for â&#x20AC;&#x153;non-preferredâ&#x20AC;? drugs on

their insurance plans. Major insurers already are carrying out their own effectiveness research, but it lacks the credibility of government-sponsored studies. Not long ago, so-called â&#x20AC;&#x153;comparative effectivenessâ&#x20AC;? research enjoyed support from lawmakers in both parties. After all, much of the medical research that doctors and consumers rely on now is financed by drug companies and medical device manufacturers, who have a built-in interest in the findings. And a drug maker only has to show that a new medicine is more effective than a sugar pill â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not a competing medication â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to win government approval for marketing.

Stimulus bill The 2009 economic stimulus bill included $1.1 billion for medical effectiveness research, mainly through the National Institutes of Health. It was not considered particularly controversial. But things changed during the congressional health care debate, after former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin made the claim, now widely debunked, that Obama and the Democrats were setting up â&#x20AC;&#x153;death panelsâ&#x20AC;? to ration care. As a result, lawmakers hedged the new institute with caveats. It was set up as an independent nonprofit organization, with a .org Internet

address instead of .gov. The government cannot dictate Selbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s research agenda. And there are limitations on how the Health and Human Services department can use the research findings in decisions that affect Medicare and Medicaid. Selby said the institute is taking seriously the term â&#x20AC;&#x153;patient-centeredâ&#x20AC;? in its name.

Patients involved Patients will not be merely subjects of research; they and their representatives will be involved in setting the agenda and overseeing the process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are talking about patients as partners in the research,â&#x20AC;? said Selby. Findings will be presented in clear language â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a kind of Consumer Reports approach â&#x20AC;&#x201D; so that patients and doctors can easily draw on them to make decisions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal, our hope, is that over time, by involving patients in research, two things will happen,â&#x20AC;? said Selby. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One is that we will start asking questions in a more practical fashion, so the results would speak more consistently to questions that patients want to know the answers to. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And two is that, by our example of involving patients in the research, trust will rise.â&#x20AC;? He expects to unveil the instituteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed research agenda in the next few weeks.

Pay hike in Clark VANCOUVER, Wash. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Four of five city managers in Clark County will receive pay increases in 2012 through planned merit increases or prenegotiated raises secured for city employees across the board, The Columbian reported. The raises do not include cost of living adjustments, which remain frozen in order to save money. Washougal Administrator Dave Scott will see the highest pay bump â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one year after declining a scheduled raise. His salary will go up by 4.5 percent. Vancouverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s city manager, Eric Holmes, will see his salary increase by 3.5 percent. Washington State University Vancouver political science professor Mark Stephan said awarding pay raises to public leaders is important because it lessens the chance of a more affluent city or private company poaching them. But he also said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to see why some local residents would object to the raises, especially in tough economic times.

Confidence rising NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; An improving job outlook helped the Consumer Confidence Index soar to the highest level since April and near a post-recession peak, according to a monthly survey by The Conference Board.

The second straight monthly surge coincided with a decent holiday shopping season for retailers, though stores had to heavily discount to attract shoppers. But confidence is still far below where it is in a healthy economy. And Americansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mood could sour again if the debt crisis in Europe deepens and spreads to the U.S. Shoppers still face big obstacles â&#x20AC;&#x201D; higher costs on household basics and a still-slumping housing market. The Conference Board, a private research group, said Tuesday that its Consumer Confidence Index rose almost 10 points to 64.5 in December, up from a revised 55.2 in November. Analysts had expected 59. The level is close to the post-recession high of 72, reached in February. One component of the index that measures how shoppers feel now about the economy rose to 46.7 from 38.3 in November. The other barometer, which measures how shoppers feel about the next six months, rose to 76.4 from 66.4.

Looking over ‘our fallen heroes’ Lewis-McChord soldiers reflect on the difficult and dignified duty at Dover BY ADAM ASHTON THE NEWS TRIBUNE

JOINT BASE LEWISMCCHORD — Stephen Harris needed a moment the first time he and a crew of airmen at Dover Air Force Base met the remains of service members killed in an overseas attack. “I can’t go in there,” he said. His team paused and wondered whether he was up to the emotionally demanding job following the 1998 terrorist attacks on American embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. “I’ve got to say a prayer first,” he said. They clasped hands, bowed their heads and prayed.

Prayer a tradition That brief ceremony became a tradition for Harris, who has since cared for hundreds of bodies in repeated assignments to the Delaware air base. “We have to put a cover over us because we don’t understand why things happen,” said Harris, now a senior master sergeant from Bremerton in Joint Base Lewis-McChord’s 446th Reserve Airlift Wing. “Lord, look over us while we look over our fallen heroes.” Harris was at Dover to handle remains from the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. He saluted fallen soldiers as they returned from the bloodiest days of the Iraq War in 2007.

Family members watch And he was there to begin a new phase of the detail in 2009 when the Obama administration started allowing family members to watch their loved ones return. Lewis-McChord’s reserve air wing has been sending airmen to Dover in small groups throughout the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, usually for four-month assignments. As the last American ground troops leave Iraq this month, the local reservists have shared a solemn

duty on behalf of the ones who didn’t make it home from the war alive: 4,487 U.S. service members, including 293 from LewisMcChord or Washington state.

Air Force investigation These days, Harris has been praying for the airmen working the mortuary detail as the Air Force investigates charges that cremated, partial remains of 274 service members were taken to a Virginia landfill after families signed forms asking the military to dispose of them properly. The Washington Post reported this month that the Air Force Inspector General and Office of Special Counsel documented cases of missing body parts and “gross mismanagement” at Dover. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has since ordered a further review but has said he was satisfied with the Air Force’s investigation, which resulted in discipline against three mortuary supervisors. Harris said the allegations “hurt my heart” because the people who made the decisions were dedicated to honoring fallen service members. The reports also threaten to tarnish the public perception of the care airmen put into their work at Dover. “I hate to see great men fall,” Harris said. The reports from the Air Force Inspector General cited by The Post contrast with the solemn assignment remembered by the Tacoma-area airmen who have worked the Dover mortuary detail.

Life-changing assignment It’s a life-changing assignment, said Staff Sgt. Andrea Barrow, who completed her first Dover mission in April. Barrow, 31, was awed by teams of airmen transferring the remains of service members from an aircraft to the Dover mortuary. It’s a ceremony that has been performed with precision for thousands of ser-


Staff Sgt. Andrea Barrow and Senior Master Sgt. Stephen Harris, members of Joint Base LewisMcChord’s 446th Reserve Airlift Wing, talk about the emotions they’ve felt while caring for fallen service members at Dover Air Force Base, Del. vice members over the past decade. “The thing that made my heart ache was when I saw the dignified transfer — every time was perfect,” she said.

At attention, crying “I just stood there at attention, crying.” Barrow, a mother of two from Puyallup, helped open a private hotel for the grieving families who travel to the air base to escort their loved ones home. That space, a Fisher House, gave the families “a sanctuary” where they could mourn in their own way. “Just to be there for them was an honor,” she said. Harris, 55, has so much experience at Dover that he becomes the superintendent and highest-ranking noncommissioned officer on his deployments there. He has voluntarily extended his time when he felt he needed to be there. The process of caring for

a fallen service member begins when a plane lands at the Delaware air base, usually returning from a combat zone. A team conducts the dignified transfer to take the remains to the mortuary, where airmen and civilian employees prepare bodies for funerals. Afterward, the bodies are flown to their final destinations — or driven if their resting places are within 300 miles of Dover. Harris said the airmen preparing the bodies aim to make the remains presentable in case time runs out to dress them for a funeral at home. “When they open the casket, you want them to know someone took time,” he said. Each assignment to Dover has been different for Harris, but the biggest change took place in 2009 when the Pentagon opened the base to the news media and families of fallen service members. Harris said the airmen

‘No time to think’ “You don’t have time to think, you just do it,” said Master Sgt. Jake Chapelle of Tacoma, who has served at Dover with Harris. He is now a spokesman for the 446th.

“That might be why 2009 was a little bit harder because it slowed down and you had time to think.” The Defense Department tries to compensate for the emotional toll of the mortuary detail by assigning counselors to Dover and arranging activities for the airmen.

Keep spirits up Harris said those are relatively new touches that help service members check in on each other and keep up their spirits. Harris does not anticipate another assignment to Dover before he retires. He says he’s leaving the mission in good hands. “There are young men and women in the Air Force that are performing at a level to which their country has no clue, day in and day out,” he said. “They have no clue how much these airmen give, these 18-, 19-, 20-year-olds performing their duties with dignity and respect.”

FORKS — A young adult comic book club is forming at the Forks Library, 171 S. Forks Ave. The group will meet for the first time at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday and will continue to meet on the first and third Tuesday of each month until May 15. At the first meeting, information about the club will be provided, along with the opportunity to create a three-panel comic. When the club meets Tuesday, Jan. 17, members will begin preliminary character drawings and story line plans. On Tuesday, Feb. 7, members will finish story development and begin sample layouts. Club members will plan, design and develop their own comic strips, cartoon charac-

at the mortuary performed the mission with the same care and compassion as they had when the services took place in private. But mourning family members brought home the cost of war in a new way. Without them, it was possible to shut down and tell the fallen soldier, “I’m going to take care of you and get you home to your family.” With grieving loved ones, “the next day, when you have to go to work preparing the remains, you still hear that family member.” He and other airmen say they were busiest during the Iraq surge of 2007. At least 80 service members died in Iraq each month for the first eight months of that year.





Floating: Project started with purchase of hull CONTINUED FROM A1


The couple met sailing Jennifer Yamaha 25s in Duck Dodger Jackson races on Lake Washington and married in 1980. Looking in vain for a sailboat with the type of pilothouse they wanted, they spent two years designing the cutter.

Not always smooth It was not always smooth sailing. “At times we had arguments, and Sheryl would throw up her hands and quit working on it,” Greg said. “The whole trick is to resolve it.” A major breakthrough was expanding the length of the boat from 47 to 50 feet to allow putting the guest stateroom aft of the pilothouse. Forward of the pilothouse are the main salon, full bathroom, galley, master stateroom and forward stateroom — a total of 400 square feet. For the woodwork and cabinetry, they used ash instead of teak, creating a light, spacious-feeling interior. But because the boat was custom-designed, everything had to be built from scratch, including the windows. “We couldn’t go to Home Depot,” Greg said.

Fiberglass hull The project started in Port Townsend with the purchase of the fiberglass hull, an Ed Munk Sr. design, from Bernie Arthur, then owner of Skookum Marine in Port Townsend. Arthur let them build the deck while the hull was still in the mold, Greg said. When that was done, Jan Andersen, a local

t r u c k e r, towed the hull to the Kerkofs’ backyard in Mukilteo, where they built a shed over it. T h e y thought the project would be completed in a couple of years, Sheryl said, but when that had passed, they had to come up with a new answer to people asking when it would be finished. “We’d say ‘Thursday,’” Greg said. For the next seven years, they spent all their free time and vacations working on the boat, and had the cabin top on and most of the interior built. bathtub, refrigerator and But they had burned out freezer. and decided to take a break.

installing Pullman bath fixtures in the guest stateroom. On Oct. 30, 2009 — a Friday — the boat came out of the boat shed and was trailered to Port Townsend, where Carol Hasse of Port Townsend Sails and Liza Vizzini and Dan Kulin of Port Townsend Rigging took over.

‘Gave us wings’ “We built the boat, but they are the people who gave us wings,” Greg said. They christened the cutter Toccata, a musical term defined as a free-wheeling composition that displays the technique of the performer. From the Italian for “touch,” a toccata is characterized by virtuoso passages. “It’s an appropriate name for a hand-built boat,” Sheryl said. The couple said they still love the boat, which they have lived on for more than

two years, first “on the hard” — a boating expression meaning out of the water — in Port Townsend and then at the Port Hadlock Marina. They have made a couple of shake-down cruises to the San Juan Islands, Sheryl said, but returned to the boatyard in November to have the propeller and shaft replaced. “WE replaced the propeller and shaft,” Greg corrected her. They are now putting the finishing touches on the boat, with Greg using the roll-top desk he built as a work area. The drawers holds navigational charts. “When we started, they didn’t have GPS,” Sheryl said, referring to the Global Positioning System. “Now we have GPS AND charts.” The building project also outlasted six family pets — three cats and three dogs — including Skookum, who was a puppy when they

bought the hull from Arthur. Jake, an 8-year-old golden retriever, took over the watch from Ruby and serves as canine first mate. This spring, the couple plan to go up the Inside Passage and stay in Alaska if they find a place they like better than Port Townsend. They dubbed the lifeboat Fugue, meaning a flight from reality, but the reality is that the couple put their lives into building the boat. “We never gave up,” Greg said. Sheryl and Greg said they didn’t keep the napkin on which they sketched a dream 30 years ago, but it was very similar, they noted, to the way their Toccata turned out.

Momma masterpieces from the woods MOMMA ALWAYS SAID if you can’t say something nice, you should write a newspaper column. So I do. This one is called the days Pat after ChristNeal mas. These are the days when Americans start to dismantle the estimated 29 million trees that they chopped down and put up for Christmas so they can throw them in the garbage. The Christmas trees are only a small part of the estimated 500 million tons of Christmas garbage that is thrown away in America every year. This is a mega-dump run that includes 38,000 miles of ribbon, 2.5 billion Christmas cards and tons of wasted food on a planet

where millions of people go to bed hungry every night. The days after Christmas are the days we finally figure out we never really wanted a lot of Christmas gifts in the first place. That’s when all the dud gifts are either stuffed in the back of the closet or returned to the store, to be exchanged for what you really wanted for Christmas — cash. Meanwhile, America’s retailers will spend billions repairing, restocking and reselling all the unwanted toys, electronics and consumer goods at a discount. All of which makes the days after Christmas — particularly the day after — a consumer spending benchmark that can almost match Black Friday for vicious combat-shopping action. That’s one good thing about homemade Christmas gifts. You don’t have to waste your time clogging up the department stores taking the stuff back. Homemade Christmas gifts

can be recycled into something useful. For example, for years it was a special holiday tradition for me to create one of my chain-saw carving masterpieces for Momma for Christmas. Momma always liked my chain-saw carvings. Until she got so many she didn’t have room to mow the lawn. That’s when I simply recycled the Christmas chain-saw carvings into what she really wanted — a special Christmas chopping block for splitting Christmas kindling for the yule log. This year’s tough economic times provided a new challenge at Christmas. There was no gas for the chain saw. With Christmas coming on, I had to think of a gift for Momma that was not only economically viable and environmentally sustainable but realistically doable for someone whose only job skill

Imagine her joy on Christmas morning when she unwrapped a new walking stick. More precisely it was a custom, guide-model walking stick. They are locally made and constructed entirely of recyclable, 100 percent organic material. In addition, these products are providing an economic incentive to a largely ignored segment of our economy who have until now been deprived of our latest technological advances. These walking sticks are made by beavers.

Gasoline prices likely to rise in 2012 THIS ISN’T THE post-Christmas greeting you want to hear. Wholesale oil prices have jumped above $100 a barrel again. Benchmark crude rose $1.66 Tuesday to end at $101.34 per barrel in New York. In Europe, Brent crude rose $1.31 to finish at $109.27 per barrel in London. The Iranian navy carries some of the blame (read later), but fix an amount of the blame by looking in the mirror. Consumer spending accounts for about 70 percent of the U.S. economy, and the oil industry is banking on the trend of strengthening consumer spending to raise prices. The New York-based Conference Board said its Consumer Confidence Index jumped almost 10

points from November, to 64.5. That level hasn’t been seen since April and was near a post-recession peak. Not surprisingly, gasoline demand has been steadily declining since spring, keeping pump prices in the $3.25 to $3.75 a gallon range. As the economists put it, more consumer spending boosts growth — and demand for oil. The average price of a gallon of regular gasoline on the North Olympic Peninsula rose to $3.569 Tuesday, according to an unofficial Peninsula Daily News spot telephone and Internet survey. That’s up about 2 cents a gallon since before Christmas. According to AAA, fuel prices

since the invention of the Pet Rock. Momma said it would be nice to have a hole in the end of the custom walking stick with a loop on it to make it handier for whacking stray dogs. That’s when I thought she might be losing it. I told her these are beavers we were dealing with. How are they supposed to drill the hole and tie on a leather thong? Beavers have no opposable thumb. I think it is way past time for a government grant to study the problem. We’ll thank ourselves later if we do the right thing now.

across Washington state Tuesday averaged $3.41 per gallon for regular, $3.54 for mid-range, $3.64 for premium and $3.97 for diesel. And now the news that may increase the pain at the pump after we enter the New Year: The Iranian navy is conducting exercises in the Strait of Hormuz, through which about one-third of the world’s oil passes. If the West carries out early threats to embargo Iran’s oil exports to discourage Iran’s naval exercises as well as pressure it against nuclear development, consumers in the U.S. could see pump prices lapping at $4 a gallon by spring, industry analysts say.

Fish on Fence benefits marine center, school art program PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Tickets are on sale now for the fourth annual Fish on the Fence Gala in February. The gala will be at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 3, at the Red Lion Hotel, 221 N. Lincoln St., near City Pier, the home of the Arthur D. Feiro Marine Life Center, one of the beneficiaries of the fundraiser. Tickets are $45. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fish on the Fence Gala will feature food, live music, art displays and a silent and a live auction. Proceeds will support the marine life center and the commercial art program at Lincoln High School. The event is named after an ongoing collaboration

among the marine life center, Lincoln High School and The Landing mall that links science and art education, said Tom Sanford, development specialist for the center. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lincoln High School teacher Melissa Klein and her commercial art students research marine species and then create artistic interpretations that are ready for a growing public art piece along the fence of The Landing mall,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The panels of marine species produced by the students are auctioned for sponsorship at the fundraising event in February.â&#x20AC;? The students have been working on their projects for about a month, Sanford said Tuesday.

Previous yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; artistic contributions included painted depictions of fish, marine mammals, invertebrates and other species common to the Strait of Juan de Fuca. This artwork is displayed on the fence of The Landing mall with a goal to cover the chain-link fence in its entirety with 20,000 fish. The Feiro Marine Life Center is open weekends for visitors from noon to 4 p.m. Admission is free during the winter months. Donations are accepted.

We will likely be sitting near each other at Coug games this fall, so I was happy to have yet another reason to play Palouse Ridge, this one sanctioned by his sports-loving wife.

Cutler, Forte put on IR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

signing Josh McCown, who was coaching quarterbacks at a North Carolina high school, and passed on going after Donovan McNabb after Minnesota let him go. Meanwhile, backup Caleb Hanie struggled in a big way and went 0-4 as the starter. McCown got the nod against the Packers and performed better, throwing for 242 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions in his first NFL appearance since 2009, but the Bears saw their playoff hopes vanish in a 35-21 loss. A healthy Forte might have made a difference, but his season ended when he took a hit to the knee against Kansas City. It didn’t help that backup Marion Barber committed costly mistakes in losses to the Chiefs and Denver the following week.















































LAKE FOREST, Ill. — The Chicago Bears have placed quarterback Jay Cutler and running back Matt Forte on injured reserve, meaning they will miss the season finale at Minnesota this week. The moves on Tuesday were hardly surprising given Chicago’s recent struggles. The Bears (7-8) have lost five straight since Cutler broke his right thumb late in a win over San Diego on Nov. 20, and things took another bad turn two weeks later when Forte sprained the medial collateral ligament in his right knee against Kansas City. Cutler, who was scheduled to have surgically inserted pins removed Tuesday, threw for 2,319 yards with 13 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Forte finished with 997 yards rushing and 490 receiving. The Bears elevated defensive tackle Jordan Miller from the practice squad and signed guard Mansfield Wrotto. Cutler’s injury sent Chicago into a tailspin, knocking out of contention a team that appeared on its way to the playoffs after last year’s run to the NFC title game. The Bears were mathematically eliminated with a loss at Green Bay on Sunday, but they probably weren’t going to make it by the time they arrived at Lambeau Field. One reason for that was the lack of a reliable backup quarterback. Chicago put in a waiver claim on Kyle Orton after Cutler went down, but Kansas City had priority and got him. The Bears wound up

Seattle quarterback Tarvaris Jackson lines up against San Francisco in the first half of Saturday’s game at Seattle.

Hawks: Plan to end with a win at Arizona CONTINUED FROM B1 “We have to be able to grow and mature and make those plays when it really counts.” Within the loss, Seattle continued the offensive progress centered on the run game that’s been clearly apparent during the latter half of the regular season. The Seahawks became the first team this season to score a touchdown rushing on the 49ers defense when Marshawn Lynch scooted around the left end and scored on a 4-yard run with 6:41 remaining that gave Seattle a 17-16 lead.

On Seattle’s next-to-last drive — that ended with Jackson’s fumble — Lynch became the first 100-yard rusher against San Francisco since November 2009 when Ryan Grant topped the 100-mark for Green Bay. Lynch’s 107 yards on 21 carries broke a 36-game streak of San Francisco not allowing anyone to top the century mark. While it came in a loss, Carroll felt that might have been the most impressive performance by Seattle’s run game during its rediscovery in the second half of the season. “I think it’s something

that we do take some pride in because they are very, very well-schemed and very well-equipped and they take great pride in it as well,” Carroll said. “Anybody that goes for a couple years without giving up a 100-yard rusher and stuff — that’s a good, talented group of people. “So I don’t care about those accomplishments so much, but I like the fact that we were consistently able to get some movement.” Seattle’s ability to run on the 49ers gained most of the headlines, but San Francisco’s run game was even more successful

against the Seahawks. The 49ers’ 178 yards rushing were the most allowed by the Seahawks this season and the fifth straight week of a team topping 100 yards on the ground versus Seattle. Carroll expected that Frank Gore would have a good game and he did, running for 83 yards and a 4-yard touchdown on the first drive of the second half. What Seattle didn’t expect was backup Kendall Hunter to run for a seasonhigh 73 yards on just 12 carries and churn off chunks of yardage, espe-

cially out of the shotgun formation. Before Saturday, Hunter had topped 40 yards rushing only once this season. “I think his 70 yards were yards we didn’t want to give up,” Carroll said. “If we gave up 80 yards or 90 yards to Gore, we would say that’s a pretty solid game against them, but [Hunter] getting to 70 or whatever it was, made a really big difference.” Along with Hunter’s contribution, Carroll pointed out the 22 yards that Alex Smith ran for as being critical. Smith had a 10-yard,

third-down scramble that set up a fourth-and-2 on the first drive of the second half. Smith then bought time on the fourth-down play and found Vernon Davis for 16 yards, and three plays later Gore scored to pull San Francisco even at 10-10. On the 49ers next drive, Smith’s 12-yard scramble on third down kept alive a drive that concluded with David Akers’ 29-yard field goal that gave San Francisco the lead. “Alex did a nice job. I really thought that he was the difference in the game for them,” Carroll said.

New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees (9) celebrates a touchdown pass in the fourth quarter against Atlanta on Monday.

Performance one for the record books Brees breaks Marino’s passing mark in victory BY BRETT MARTEL THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ing during a span of a little more than 18 minutes in the second half. Fans howled, “Drewwww!” each time he took the field, and he finally gave them what they wanted after Atlanta failed on a fourth-down try at its own 33. That gave Brees, who needed only 30 yards for the record at that point, just enough space to work with. The Saints didn’t need another score, but Saints coach Sean Payton said he thought giving Brees a chance to go for the record was “appropriate.” Falcons coach Mike Smith diplomatically deflected questions about that, saying only, “It is our job to go out there and stop them. It doesn’t matter if they are running the ball or throwing the ball.” Matt Ryan had 373 yards passing and one TD, including an early 21-yard scoring strike to Jones. “We didn’t really play well enough in any phase of the game to give ourselves a Drew Brees, left, hugs wide receiver Robert chance,” said Smith, whose Meachem after breaking the passing record. team came in with a chance to stay in the hunt for the division title. “It’s not the type of effort Port Angeles Hardwood LLC that you want to have with 333 Eclipse Industrial Pkwy so much on the line with Port Angeles,WA 98363 what the outcome could have meant to our team.” Tel: (360) 452-6041 • Fax: (360) 417-6805 Pierre Thomas scored New Orleans’ first touchSUPPORT YOUR LOCAL ECONOMY! down on a 4-yard run, after which he pulled a bow from KEEP YOUR ALDER & MAPLE SAWLOGS ON THE PENINSULA! his uniform pants, put it on the football and offered it as Contact Randy Bartelt a gift to a woman with a at (360) 739-6681 parasol in the front row behind the end zone. The referees weren’t cutting Thomas any slack on his Christmas-themed celebration, flagging him for a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.


NEW ORLEANS — After Drew Brees broke an NFL passing record that stood for nearly three decades, his teammates called on him to make a speech in the Saints’ locker room. “This record isn’t about one person. There might be just one name that goes in ledger under the record, but it’s really about the team,” Brees told his teammates. “I want everyone to feel a huge part of this, that this record would not have been possible without them.” It was quite a night for Brees and the Saints — a record and a rout. Brees set the NFL mark for yards passing in a season, breaking a record Dan Marino held for 27 years, and New Orleans wrapped up the NFC South title with a 45-16 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night. Brees nearly topped Marino three years ago, finishing with 5,069 yards passing. But that pursuit rang a little hollow because the Saints were 8-8. This time, Brees’ prolific passing has led New Orleans (12-3) to the playoffs and a legitimate shot at its second Super Bowl in three seasons. “We all want this [record] very badly,” Brees began, “but it’s all about winning and we know if we just focus on that, all that other stuff will take care of itself.” Brees threw for 307 yards and four touchdowns,

the last a 9-yard strike to Darren Sproles that set the record with 2:51 to go. It was Brees’ final pass of the game and it gave him 5,087 yards passing — with one game left. Marino finished with 5,084 yards for the Miami Dolphins in 1984. Minutes after Brees broke the record, Marino offered congratulations on Twitter. “Great job by such a special player,” Marino wrote. As Sproles spiked the ball, Brees thrust his fist triumphantly in the air and started walking toward the sideline while the Superdome crowd went wild and his teammates chased him down. Offensive guard Carl Nicks was the first one to get there and tried to lift Brees onto his shoulder, but couldn’t do it as teammates swarmed around. “If I could have put him on my shoulders and paraded him around the whole stadium I would have done that. He deserves it,” Nicks said. “It’s like a movie, man. Just a movie ending. It’s beautiful. You could tell by everyone’s reaction after he did it how much people care about that guy. We all love him.” Brees pushed his touchdown total to 276, moving him ahead of Joe Montana (273) and Vinny Testaverde (275) for ninth on the career list. The former Purdue star is the first quarterback in NFL history to pass for

more than 5,000 yards twice. Brees’ first scoring pass went for 8 yards to Marques Colston and the second for 9 yards to Jimmy Graham. Graham’s TD catch was his 10th of the season, a franchise high for a tight end. In the third quarter, Brees hit Robert Meachem for a score from 24 yards to make it 28-10. The Saints (12-3) also had 463 total yards, giving them 6,857 offensive yards for the season, breaking the 2008 club record of 6,571. New Orleans continues to close in on the NFL record of 7,075 offensive yards set by the 2000 St. Louis Rams. Brees might have broken the record in the third quarter if not for Sproles’ 92-yard kickoff return, which set up John Kasay’s 29-yard field goal. Brees also threw two interceptions, but New Orleans was still dominant enough to take a big lead. The game became a romp when Julio Jones was stripped by Scott Shanle and Malcolm Jenkins returned it 30 yards for a score to make it 38-16 in the fourth quarter. The Superdome crowd was in full celebration by then, but the play also meant fans would have to wait until later in the fourth quarter before Brees finally got his chance to break the passing record. The Saints can earn the No. 2 seed and a first-round playoff bye with a win Sunday over Carolina and a San Francisco loss at St. Louis, which is 2-13. Atlanta (9-6) is headed to the playoffs as a wild card. Uncharacteristically, Brees had only a yard pass-

Fun ’n’ Advice






DEAR ABBY: My marriage has been on the rocks since 2008, when I caught my husband talking to other girls online. He swore he would never do it again, and I trusted him, only for it to happen again and again. We have a 2-year-old, and I’m pregnant with our second child. He has now placed another ad online stating that he’s a single dad. I am torn. He keeps telling me he loves me and wants only me, and he doesn’t know what’s wrong with him. He is bipolar and not taking meds for it. He promised this time he will get help and try to get better. This is the fifth time he has placed an ad or chatted with other girls online. I don’t know if I should call it quits or keep trying. I love him and want us to be a family, but I don’t know how much more I can take. Torn in California

I love Wayne. I have searched my whole life for someone like him. How long is long enough to wait? What if they never do? On the Sidelines

by Eugenia Last

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Put your heart and soul into your personal life and the relationships that are important to you. Do something special for a friend, lover or relative. Changing your surroundings will brighten your day. Shopping will lead to a must-have purchase. 3 stars

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You may want to offer assistance, but you are likely to be taken for granted if you do. Back off and do things that will reflect your own advancement in the coming months. Now is the time for self-gratification. 2 stars

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Emotions will rise to the surface, especially if you have to deal with difficult coworkers or a minor health problem in you or a pet. You will make far better decisions if you keep a low profile and refuse to become upset. 3 stars

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t make changes based on what someone else does. Take a wait-and-watch approach to anything that could go either way. Spend time fixing up your digs or preparing to make a change to your living arrangements that will cut your costs. 3 stars by Hank Ketcham

Van Buren

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Put your money in a safe place. You may feel like spending, but paying too much for something or purchasing something you don’t need will bring depression. Focus on friends, family and loving the people you like to hang with. 4 stars

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’ll have excellent ideas and should work toward a plan that will improve your professional life. A responsible approach to something you have to offer will interest an entrepreneurial person who wants to help. Love is highlighted. 5 stars

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Reuniting with someone from your past will make your imagination run wild.

You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. 4 stars CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Go over your plans. Look at your assets and liabilities, making note of the changes you want to make.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Trust in what you see, not what you hear. Not everyone will have your best interests at heart. Confide only in people who have backed you in the past. Don’t let someone’s uncertainty stand in your way. 2 stars

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A surprise is heading your way. Don’t pry. A change in status or position may not be welcome at first, but in the end you will realize how beneficial the unfolding circumstances will be for you. 3 stars
