â€˜Pit-pierâ€™ project dead or alive? Effort â€˜going forwardâ€™ despite Navy-state pact BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ AND LEAH LEACH PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
SHINE â€” The â€œpit-to-pierâ€? project isnâ€™t dead, its manager said, despite a conservation agreement in the works between the state and the Navy that would prohibit new construction along areas of Hood Canal.
â€œWeâ€™re going to be going forward,â€? said Dan Baskins, project manager for the Thorndyke Resources Project, before referring inquiries to the companyâ€™s spokesman. The Navy is working with the state Department of Natural Resources, or DNR, to secure a department-owned strip of subtidal lands stretching from the
Hood Canal Bridge south to just below the border between Jefferson and Mason counties. The agreement, expected to be approved by the Navy by this fall, would prevent new nearshore commercial and industrial construction along the areas of Hood Canal and neighboring waterways that the DNR manages and in which the Navy operates. Some have heralded the pending agreement as signaling the end of the Thorndyke Resource Project, nicknamed â€œpit-to-pier,â€? a proposal that would move gravel from an extraction area near the former Fred Hill Materials Shine
pit along a 4-mile-long conveyor belt to a 1,000-foot pier at Hood Canal where it would be loaded on barges for shipping.
Environmental study Thorndyke has no permit. It is in the process of an environmental impact study review. Joan Crooks, executive director of Washington Environmental Council, said the agreement between DNR and the Navy would mark â€œthe end of a decadelong battle over a proposed gravel mine and 1,000-foot pier in Hood Canal.â€? But a long-standing opponent
of the project, John Fabian of the Hood Canal Coalition, said he thinks the company will take action to keep the project alive. â€œI donâ€™t think the fight is over,â€? said Fabian, who co-founded the coalition in 2002, â€œbut I think the odds of their being successful have been diminished extensively. â€œI think they would have a very difficult hill to climb under the circumstances of this easement.â€? The news was apparently enough to prompt a small celebration. TURN

PORT ANGELES â€” Onlookers began lining up â€œbumper-to-bumper,â€? as one neighbor described it, last week to catch a glimpse and a quick photo of the destruction wrought from a bulldozer rampage that damaged several homes and other property in Gales Addition. â€œFor a week, itâ€™s been constant,â€? said Barbara Porter, whose home was one of four damaged in the bulldozer rampage. â€œPeople taking pictures and yelling at you â€” itâ€™s been hard.â€? Porter and her husband, James, live on Pioneer Road in Gales Addition, just south of Barry Swegle, the 51-year-old man who is charged with boarding his logging bulldozer at about 11:30 a.m. May 10 and plowing through neighborsâ€™ properties in a 10- to 15-minute spree of destruction that KEITH THORPE/PENINSULA DAILY NEWS has since garnered international attenPhotography student Cody Kreider of Port Angeles takes photos of bulldozertion.

Aguilera, Cee Lo Green back on ‘The Voice’ “THE VOICE” IS leaving the judging drama to its rivals. The NBC singing contest said Friday that Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green will return for “The Voice” Season 5, joining Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. Their midseason replacements — Shakira and Usher — will be back for Season 6, which will air in midseason 2014. Meanwhile Fox is scrambling to revive “American Idol” after record low ratings for Thursday’s finale, with 14.3 million viewers. Original judge Randy Jackson already has announced his exit, and Fox is making yet-to-be detailed format changes. Last week, “The Voice” narrowly edged out “Idol” in weekly ratings.

The U-T San Diego newspaper reported that the detail came to light during a Friday hearing for 32-year-old Timothy Lambesis. He has pleaded not guilty to solicitation for murder. A judge at the hearing reduced Lambesis’ bail from $3 million to $2 mil-
lion. Prosecutors said Lambesis, frontman for Grammywinning band As I Lay Dying, paid $1,000 cash to an undercover detective posing as a hitman and gave instructions on how best to kill his wife. Lambesis’ attorney, Thomas Warwick, said in court that his client had gotten into body building and steroid use. He said Lambesis’ thoughts were “devastatingly affected” by the drugs.

KEN VENTURI, 82, who overcame dehydration to win the 1964 U.S. Open and spent 35 years in the booth for CBS Sports, died Friday afternoon. His son, Matt Venturi, said he died in a hospital in Rancho Mirage, Calif. Mr. VenMr. Venturi turi had been hospi- in 2002 talized the last two months for a spinal infection, pneumonia and then an intestinal infection that he could no longer fight. Mr. Venturi died 12 days after he was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame. He couldn’t make it to the induction. His sons, Matt and Tim, accepted on his behalf after an emotional tribute by Jim Nantz, who worked alongside Mr. Venturi at CBS. Mr. Venturi was all about overcoming the odds. A prominent amateur who grew up in San Francisco, he captured his only major in the 1964 U.S. Open at Congressional, the last year the final round was 36 holes. In oppressive heat, Mr. Venturi showed signs of dehydration, and a doctor recommended he stop playing because it could be fatal. Mr. Venturi pressed on to the finish, closed with a 70 and was heard to say, “My God, I’ve won the U.S. Open.” He had a severe stutter-
ing problem as a child, yet went on to become one of the familiar voices in golf broadcasting. He began working for CBS in 1968 and lasted 35 years.

Federal Prison Service Director Victor Hortel said Mr. Videla died in his prison cell. Mr. Mr. Videla Videla ran in 2010 one of the bloodiest military governments during South America’s era of dictatorships and later sought to take full responsibility for kidnappings, tortures, deaths and disappearances when he was tried again and again for these crimes in recent years.

Looking Back From the files of The Associated Press
TODAY IS SUNDAY, May 19, the 139th day of 2013. There are 226 days left in the year. Today’s Highlights in History: ■ On May 19, 1943, in his second wartime address to the U.S. Congress, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill pledged his country’s full support in the fight against Japan. That same day, top U.S. and British officials meeting in Washington reached agreement on May 1, 1944, as the date for the D-Day invasion of France; the operation ended up being launched more than a month later. On this date: ■ In 1536, Anne Boleyn, the second wife of England’s King Henry VIII, was beheaded after
being convicted of adultery. ■ In 1780, a mysterious darkness enveloped much of New England and part of Canada in the early afternoon. ■ In 1913, California Gov. Hiram Johnson signed the Webb-Hartley Law prohibiting “aliens ineligible to citizenship” from owning farm land, a measure targeting Asian immigrants, particularly Japanese. ■ In 1921, Congress passed, and President Warren G. Harding signed, the Emergency Quota Act, which established national quotas for immigrants. ■ In 1935, T.E. Lawrence, also known as “Lawrence of Arabia,” died in Dorset, England, six days after being injured in a
motorcycle crash. ■ In 1962, actress Marilyn Monroe sang “Happy Birthday to You” to President John F. Kennedy during a Democratic fundraiser at New York’s Madison Square Garden. ■ In 1964, the State Department disclosed that 40 hidden microphones had been found in the U.S. embassy in Moscow. ■ In 1973, Secretariat won the Preakness Stakes, the second of his Triple Crown victories. ■ In 1993, the Clinton White House set off a political storm by abruptly firing the entire staff of its travel office; five of the seven staffers were later reinstated and assigned to other duties. ■ In 1994, former first lady Jac-
queline Kennedy Onassis died in New York at age 64. ■ Ten years ago: The Supreme Court dealt a defeat to the drug industry, ruling 6-3 that a state (in this case, Maine) may try to force companies to lower prices on prescription medications for the poor and uninsured. ■ Five years ago: Chinese stood still and sirens wailed to mourn the country’s nearly 70,000 earthquake victims. ■ One year ago: Chen Guangcheng, a blind Chinese legal activist, was hurriedly taken from a hospital and put on a plane for the United States, closing a nearly monthlong diplomatic tussle that had tested U.S.-China relations.

A3 Briefly: Nation Car drives into hikers during Virginia parade DAMASCUS, Va. — About 50 to 60 people were injured Saturday when a driver described by witnesses as an elderly man drove his car into a group of hikers marching in a parade in a small Virginia mountain town. It happened around 2:10 p.m. during the Hikers Parade at the Trail Days festival, an annual celebration of the Appalachian Trail in Damascus, near the Tennessee state line about a half-hour drive east of Bristol. Washington County director of emergency management Pokey Harris said no fatalities had been reported. The injuries ranged from critical to superficial, he said. Three of the victims were flown by helicopters to regional hospitals. An additional 12 to 15 were taken by ambulance. The rest were treated at the scene.

Briefly: World Syria’s Assad says he won’t resign position BEIRUT — Syrian President Bashar Assad said in a newspaper interview Saturday he won’t step down and will instead “face the storm,” raising new doubts about a U.S.-Russian effort to get Assad and his opponents to negotiate an end to the country’s civil war. In the Syrian capital Damascus, meanwhile, a powerful explosion went off in the Ruken al-Deen neighborhood, killing three Assad people and wounding five, Syrian state TV reported. The Syrian leader told the Argentine newspaper Clarin in comments published Saturday that he won’t leave before elections are held in his country and suggested that he might seek another term. Assad’s comments were the first about his political future since the U.S. and Russia agreed earlier this month to try to bring the Syrian regime and the opposition to an international conference for talks aimed at finding a peaceful resolution to the conflict.

Khalil Ahmad Shaheedzada, a conservative lawmaker for Herat province, said the legislation was withdrawn shortly after being introduced in parliament. “Whatever is against Islamic law, we don’t even need to speak about it,” Shaheedzada said.
N. Korea missiles fired
SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea fired three shortrange guided missiles into its eastern waters Saturday, a South Korean official said. It routinely tests such missiles, but the latest launches came during a period of tentative diplomacy aimed at easing tensions.

Train crash ‘staggering’ THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
FAIRFIELD, Conn. — Officials described a devastating scene of shattered cars and other damage where two trains packed with rushhour commuters collided in Connecticut, saying Saturday it’s fortunate that no one was killed and that there weren’t even more injuries. Seventy-two people were sent to the hospital Friday evening after the crash, which damaged the tracks and threatened to snarl travel in the Northeast Corridor. “The damage is absolutely staggering,” said U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, describing the shattered interior of cars and tons of metal tossed around. “I feel that we are fortunate that even more injuries were not the result of this very tragic and unfortunate accident.”
Both said new Metro-North Railroad cars built with higher standards may have saved lives. Officials couldn’t say when Metro-North service would be restored. The crash also caused Amtrak to suspend service between New York and Boston. About 700 people were on board the MetroNorth trains when one heading east from New York City’s Grand Central Terminal to New Haven derailed at about 6:10 p.m. just outside Bridgeport, transit and Bridgeport officials said. Passengers described a chaotic, terrifying scene of crunching metal and flying bodies. The train was hit by a train heading west from New Haven to Grand Central on an adjacent track, Metropolitan Transportation Authority spokesman Aaron Donovan said.
White House undaunted in wake of tough week Agenda pursued on immigration, Obama appointees BY DAVID ESPO THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — Despite Democratic fears, predictions of the demise of President Barack Obama’s agenda appear exaggerated after a week of cascading controversies, political triage by the administration and party leaders in Congress, and lack of evidence to date of wrongdoing close to the Oval Office. “Absolutely not,” Steven Miller, the recently resigned acting head of the Internal Revenue Service, responded Friday when asked if he had any contact with the White House about targeting conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status for special treatment. “The president’s re-election campaign?” persisted Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif. “No,” said Miller. The hearing took place at the end of a week in which Republicans repeatedly assailed Obama and were attacked by Democrats in turn — yet sweeping immigration legislation advanced methodically toward bipartisan approval in the Senate Judiciary Committee.
The measure “has strong support of its own in the Senate,” said Sen. Amy K l o b u c h a r, D-Minn., a member of the panel. Across the Miller Capitol, a bipartisan House group reported agreement in principle toward a compromise on the issue, which looms as Obama’s best chance for a signature second-term domestic achievement. “I continue to believe that the House needs to deal with this,” said House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, who is not directly involved in the talks.
Cabinet confirmation The president’s nominee to become energy secretary, Ernest Moniz, won Senate confirmation, 97-0. And there were signs that Republicans might allow confirmation of Sri Srinivasan to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, sometimes a stepping stone to the Supreme Court. Separately, a House committee approved legislation to prevent a spike in interest rates on student loans July 1. It moves in the direc-
tion of a White House-backed proposal for future rate changes to be based on private markets. Even so, Rep. Fred Upton, R-Mich., chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee, said, “It’s been a bad week for the administration.” Several Democratic lawmakers and aides agreed and expressed concern about the impact on Obama’s agenda — even though much of it has been stymied by Republicans for months already. At the same time, Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., voiced optimism that the IRS controversy would boost the push for an overhaul of the tax code, rather than derail it. “It may make a case for a simpler tax code, where the IRS has less discretion,” he said. Long-term budget issues, the main flashpoint of divided government since 2011, have receded as projected deficits fall in the wake of an improving economy and recently enacted spending cuts and tax increases. Even before Obama began grappling with the IRS, the fallout from last year’s deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, and from the Justice Department’s secret seizure of Associated Press phone records, the two parties were at odds over steps to replace $85 billion in across-the-board spending cuts.

Dalton Smith, who was wanted on a parole violation related to a first-degree robbery conviction, attempted to rob the off-campus home where he and Hofstra junior Andrea Rebello were fatally shot, Nassau County, N.Y., police said. Authorities said police were involved in the shooting, although it isn’t clear who fired the shots that killed Rebello and Smith around 2:30 a.m. Friday.
A STRING OF attacks killed at least 16 people in Iraq on Saturday, while gunmen abducted eight policemen guarding a post on the main highway to Jordan and Syria, the latest in a wave of violence to grip the country. The shootings and bombings follow three days of attacks that killed 130 people in both Shiite and Sunni areas in scenes reminiscent of retaliatory attacks between the two groups that pushed the country to the brink of civil war in 2006-2007. The spike in bloodshed in recent weeks has raised fears the country may be heading toward a new round of sectarian conflict.

Ex-officer gets more jail time THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
TACOMA â€” A former Lakewood police officer previously convicted for stealing from a fund to benefit the families of four officers shot in 2009 has pleaded guilty to more charges related to that case.

Anderson Lake closes due to high toxin level BY LEAH LEACH PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
CHIMACUM â€” Anderson Lake, which has been plagued with high levels of algae-produced toxins for the past seven years, has been closed to fishing and other recreation after only three weeks. The popular trout-fishing lake between Port Townsend and Chimacum was opened April 27 for the start of the statewide lowland lake fishing season but was closed to all recreation last week because of high levels of the potent nerve toxin anatoxin-a.
Anatoxin-a The toxin, which is produced by blue-green algae, was detected in water samples taken Monday from Anderson Lake, said Mike Dawson, water quality lead with the Jefferson County Public Health Department, after results were received from King County Environ-
mental Lab on Friday. Upon the countyâ€™s recommendation, State Parks Ranger Mike Zimmerman closed the lake to fishing, boating and swimming. People also are urged to keep pets out of the water. The 410-acre Anderson Lake State Park around the lake remains open for hiking, biking and horseback riding. â€œVisitors should be aware that the algae bloom at Anderson Lake is not very visible right now,â€? Dawson said. â€œBut donâ€™t be fooled by the lack of a bright green scum; the toxin level is high.â€?
Toxin level climbs The toxin level in Anderson Lake was found to have climbed to 4.26 micrograms per liter, which is more than four times greater than the safety threshold of 1 microgram per liter, Dawson said. Anatoxin-a is produced

Police continue to seek 2 men BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” A 29-year-old Port Angeles man has been arrested in last weekendâ€™s smash-andgrab burglary at a pawn shop on First Street. Police cannot say yet if the man was involved in an earlier burglary at Radio Shack that was thought to have been burgled in the same way. â€œWeâ€™re working these cases as if they are connected,â€? said Brian Smith, deputy police chief, on Saturday. But he added: â€œWe have nothing yet that we can use to attribute that subject to the Radio Shack burglary.â€? Bret Miles Dotson was booked into the Clallam County jail Friday and remained there Saturday with no bond set for investigation of one count each of first-degree burglary, firstdegree theft from a building and first-degree possession of stolen property after allegedly breaking into the EZ Pawn shop at 113 E. First St. in the early morning hours of May 11. Police Sgt. Glen Roggenbuck said Saturday that Dotson was arrested without incident at a home in the 500 block of East Eighth Street after police spoke with his mother there. â€œShe said that he was there. She went in and asked him to come out, and he did,â€? said Roggenbuck. Roggenbuck said police had received an anonymous tip that Dotson was at the home but did not know Saturday what had led police to suspect him. Police continue to seek
two other men in the pawn shop burglary, in which jewelry and firearms were reported stolen and entry was made through a broken glass door. The suspects in the EZ Pawn burglary, while driving a Kia Sportage, reportedly led police on a 10-minute chase that reached speeds of 70 mph as it snaked its way from First Street to Race Street then to Mount Angeles Road, eventually ending on a small residential street where the pursuing officers lost it. The Kia was found in a parking lot near the intersection of Eighth and Francis streets about two hours later.
Radio Shack The burglars of the Radio Shack on 1940 E. First St. struck early May 8 and made off with several iPods and two laptop computers, according to police accounts. Burglars in this case also broke the storeâ€™s glass to get inside. Police were looking for an dark-colored early 1990s Honda Accord thought to be involved in the Radio Shack burglary. Police are asking anyone with information on either burglary to phone the department at 360-4524545 or North Olympic Crime Stoppers at 800-2228477, a 24-hour, toll-free number where anonymous tips can be left. Crime Stoppers offers a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest and filing of felony charges.

It is a quick-acting poison that can lead to death in people and animals within four minutes if ingested in high doses.

Primary contests shape up in Jefferson Fire District commission, Barb Knoepfle is unopposed for a six-year term in Position 3. Meril Smith filed for Position 3 on the Brinnon Fire District, a six-year term.
BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND â€” Three-way primary contests have opened up in two of three open seats on the City Council, as well as for a Port of Port Townsend commission seat. A two-way contest is set for a third City Council seat, and incumbent Jefferson Healthcare commissioners will face challenges. The election lineup was finalized after the 4:30 p.m. Friday deadline passed for candidates to file declarations for 48 seats on the 25 elected councils, boards and commissions on which elected positions are available. The three open City Council seats are those of the longest-serving council members. Michelle Sandoval, 54, and Catharine Robinson, 65, were elected in 2001, while Mark Welch, 64, was elected in 2005 after serving a two-year stint in the late 1990s. Sandoval and Robinson were among the first candidates to declare their intention to run this year. Welch, a former mayor, announced his retirement from the council Wednesday.
Council challenges Now, Sandoval, also a former mayor, is challenged for her Position 1 seat by Bob Jautz, who retired after careers in the financial industry and as a surveyor, and Vern Garrison, a Port Townsend contractor who served on the council in the early 2000s. Robinson, in Position 2, is challenged by Patrick Moore for another term. Position 5, vacated by Welch, also has a three-way race. Pamela Adams, 69, a chiropractor who ran in 2011 for the council but did not
Standoff prompts arrest in Everett THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
EVERETT â€” Police said they have captured a home intruder who held them at bay for nearly eight hours after claiming to have a grenade. Police spokesman Aaron Snell said officers entered the house shortly before 10 p.m. Friday and arrested a 40-year-old Lake Stevens man. No grenade was found. Snell said earlier in a statement that police responding Friday afternoon to a neighborâ€™s call about a break-in confronted a man who was leaving the house but turned and went back inside.
Hiding in attic Officers searched the home and were able to talk to the man, who by then was hiding in the attic. Snell said the man claimed to have a grenade and threatened to use it. No one else was home. SWAT officers and a bomb unit responded as police worked to negotiate with the man. Snell said the man would be booked for investigation of burglary.
Current board chair Marc Mauney, a retired physician, is opposed by Matt Ready, 39, an employee at the hospital. Journalist and consultant Jill Buhler, 67, is opposed by student Savannah Hensel, 28.

Sherwood, 65, a Port Townsend veterinarian. The three-candidate races will be narrowed down to two in the Aug. 6 primary, with the top votegetters advancing to the Nov. 5 election. One measure will be on the primary ballot: a Port Townsend Library bond issue. That should help get voters out to participate in the City Council elections, Adams said.
The winner of the threeway race will replace District 2 Commissioner Dave Thompson, who lost his district when its boundaries were redrawn in 2011. Entrepreneur Peter Quinn, 59, engineer Bill Putney, 66, and maritime trades worker Brad Clinefelter, 54, all filed for the seat. In District 3, incumbent commissioner Leif Erickson, 62, is challenged by Pete Hanke, 54, who operates a commercial vessel in Port Townsend. Both seats are four-year terms.
Fire districts Port of Port Townsend A primary contest will take place in the Port of Port Townsendâ€™s commission race for the District 2 seat, which represents Port Hadlock, Cape George and Marrowstone Island.
On the East Jefferson Fire-Rescue Board, the incumbent in Position 1, Zane Wyll Sr., is running for another six-year term, while David Johnson of Port Hadlock has filed to fill an unexpired four-year term in
Position 3. Both are unopposed. Ed Edwards, who was appointed to fill the Position 3 seat after the death of Commissioner Jesse Bondurant Jr., did not seek another term. On the Quilcene Fire District board, incumbent Deborah Randall filed for a six-year term for Position 1, and incumbent Gary Phillips is running to fill an unexpired two-year term for Position 2. Randall and Phillips, both unopposed, were appointed to the board after a recall election earlier this year removed two commissioners from office. Port Ludlow Fire Commission incumbent Ed Davis is unopposed in Position 2, while incumbent Gene Carmody is challenged by Tami Robocker, both for six-year terms. On the Discovery Bay
On the Port Townsend School Board, current Chair Jennifer James-Wilson is opposed by former board member and retired mill employee Rita BeebeCaldwell for a four-year term. Holley Carlson, who like Wilson was first elected in 2009, is unopposed for her position. On the Chimacum School Board, Sarah Sawyer is challenging District 1 incumbent Ted Friedrich, while incumbents Cammy Brown, District 2, and Kevin Miller, District 5, are unopposed. All are four-year terms. On the Quilcene School Board, District 2 incumbent Gary Rae is unopposed, while Keith D. Meyer and Greg Brotherton have both filed for the director-atlarge seat, which is open. Terms are for four years. On the Brinnon School Board, incumbents Valerie Schindler, Position 1, and Joe Baisch, Position 3, are unopposed. Shindler is running for a four-year term, while Baisch is running for an unexpired two-year term. Four candidates filed for three seats on the Queets/ Clearwater School District. Each is a four-year term. Incumbent Lyle Pfeifle, District 1, and Suzanna R. Kalama, District 5 incumbent, are unopposed, while incumbent Sara S. Charles and Betty Boome are running against each other in District 2. The two incumbent Jefferson Healthcare commissioners will face challenges for another six-year term.
Other filings Other filings throughout the week were: â– Three candidates filed for the Coyle-Thorndyke Park and Recreation District. Dennis Schmitt, Position 2, and Larry Robinson, Position 3, are seeking fouryear terms, while Cathy Bohman, Position 4, is running to fill a two-year unexpired term. â– Nikki Hay filed for Position 2 on the West (Forks) Jefferson County Hospital District, a six-year term. â– Karl Springer filed for a four-year unexpired term for Position 1 on the Brinnon Cemetery District, where Roxianne Morris filed for a six-year term for Position 2. â– Jim Hueter filed for Position 1 on the Gardiner Cemetery District, a sixyear term. â– Fred Stern filed for Position 1 on the Brinnon Water District, a six-year term. At the close of filings, Jefferson County Elections Supervisor Karen Cartmel said five seats did not draw any candidates. The Quilcene and Brinnon cemetery districts each have open seats, while no one filed to serve on the Queets-Clearwater Fire District. Cartmel said an extended filing period for these positions will be announced at a later time.

PA teen charged in suspected heroin OD BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” A 18-year-old Port Angeles man has pleaded not guilty to a felony charge related to drug trafficking after a teen died of a suspected heroin overdose, and a drugrelated homicide charge is possible in the coming weeks, according to the Clallam County Prosecuting Attorneyâ€™s Office. Meanwhile, police are investigating another death last week to see if it, too,
might be related to heroin. David Zavodny entered his plea Friday to one count of maintain- Zavodny ing premises for drug trafficking, a Class C felony. The Clallam County Superior Courtroom was packed with friends and family of Maceo Niehaus, a 17-year-old Port Angeles boy who died in Zavodnyâ€™s
Ennis Street home of a suspected overdose on heroin with which Zavodny allegedly provided him. Extra security was in force at the courthouse because of a threat made against Zavodny, authorities said. Both Port Angeles police and fire officials have said Niehausâ€™ death was the fifth heroin overdose, and the first death, in the area that both agencies have responded to in the past 10 days or so. But Brian Smith, deputy

Testing for Volunteers & Resident Volunteers June &

police chief, said Friday that police also are investigating another death potentially related to heroin. Paramedics were unable to revive a woman, 37-yearold Jamie L. Bryant of Montesano, in a house in the 600 block of East 10th Street at about 1:15 p.m. Monday, Smith said.
â€˜Strong possibilityâ€™ â€œThe facts as we have them would indicate itâ€™s a strong possibilityâ€? that heroin contributed to the death, Smith said. However, Smith said evidence that would have allowed police to confirm Bryantâ€™s death was heroinrelated, such as presence of the drug or a witness statement, was not found. Heroin use has increased across the North Olympic Peninsula in the past two years, law enforcement officials have said. Fire Chief Sam Phillips of Clallam County Fire District
No. 2, which covers the area just outside Port Angeles, said last week his paramedics were called to two heroin overdose calls in the past month. He did not know whether the people survived. Zavodny originally was booked into the Clallam County jail earlier this week for investigation of one count of controlled-substance homicide.
Considering charge Ann Lundwall, county deputy prosecuting attorney, said Friday she is contemplating filing the homicide charge. â€œIt is very likely an additional charge will be filed in the future,â€? Lundwall said. A jury trial for Zavodny, who remained in jail on $250,000 bail, has been set for July 22, with a status hearing slated for June 14 at 9 a.m. According to court documents, police were called to Zavodnyâ€™s home at about
8:16 a.m. Tuesday because neighbors said he was acting â€œbizarre and scary.â€? Niehaus reportedly has used heroin while with Zavodny earlier that day and had a â€œphysical reactionâ€? to the drug, according to court documents, though Zavodny reportedly was able to revive him. Police said Zavodny, who was left in the care of his grandmother at the house, told police that Niehaus was there but not that he needed medical attention. Zavodny called police back at 1:48 p.m., and Niehaus was found dead, the document said. Police searched the home and in Zavodnyâ€™s bedroom found electronic scales, used packaging and other evidence thought to be associated with selling heroin, according to police reports. About 200 of those who knew Niehaus gathered for a candlelight vigil on Ediz Hook on Friday night.

Sellars, who lives a few blocks away from Davisâ€™ property, said the days after the rampage were filled with people stopping along Baker Street to take pictures of friends and family in front of the remnants of Davisâ€™ truck and mobile home. â€œLast week, for the first four or five days after it happened, sometimes there were easily a dozen or more [cars],â€? said Sellars, who writes a column for the Peninsula Daily News.

Davis said he called the Clallam County Sheriffâ€™s Office about the confrontation and wanted a deputy to talk to Swegle but was advised that he should seek a restraining order. According to the Sheriffâ€™s Officeâ€™s incident report on the call, Davis called the Sheriffâ€™s Office at 9:47 a.m. Friday, about 1Â˝ hours before Swegle allegedly began his 10- to 15-minute rampage through a squareblock area of Gales Addition. â€œMy wife was going to get a restraining order, but he tore the house down within an hour or two hours maybe [of] when he did that,â€? Davis said of the Swegleâ€™s alleged angry words and obscene gesture. Sheriff Bill Benedict said Friday that property line disputes are not under the purview of the Sheriffâ€™s Office. â€œGenerally, that falls in the area of civil disputes,â€? he said.

Woman wins $75,000 for bite THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
OLYMPIA â€” A Thurston County jury has awarded $75,000 to a woman bit by a neighborâ€™s dog. The Olympian newspaper reported that the woman was seeking payment for medical expenses,
plus pain, inconvenience, emotional stress, scarring and other general damages. After a weeklong trial, the jury voted 10-2 to award Linda Astorga more than $25,000 for past and future economic damages plus another $50,000 for other damages from the dog bite
on her calf in the driveway of her former home in Tenino in May 2009. Her attorney said Astorga has permanent scarring and is dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder and ongoing fear, since she was chased and attacked by the neighborsâ€™

dogs they let run loose in the neighborhood. Marie Doctor said her clientâ€™s lawsuit was really about dog owner responsibility.
Wood on Friday set 9 a.m. June 14 for a status hearing on the case and 9 a.m. Aug. 12 for the beginning of Swegleâ€™s trial, which is estimated to last up to five days. Wood also denied a motion by Swegleâ€™s lawyer, Karen Unger of Port Angeles, to lower Swegleâ€™s bail from $1 million. Swegle has pleaded not guilty to all charges in the bulldozer attack. Swegle, the owner of several pieces of heavy equipment, has been charged with first-degree assault with a deadly weapon, four counts of first-degree burglary with a deadly weapon â€” â€œto wit, a bulldozerâ€? â€” and four counts of firstdegree malicious mischief. The burglary and assault charges carry maximum sentences of life in prison without parole. The malicious-mischief charges have maximum 10-year sentences. There were no injuries during the incident, which has received international media attention. For instance, a Peninsula Daily News photo of the flattened Ford F-250 was featured in the Daily Mail newspaper in London.
â€œAny person who climbs aboard a big â€™dozer and tears down one house or another . . . if people are inside or not, is a danger to the community, period,â€? Wood said. â€œI think the bail is appropriate, and Iâ€™m not going to reduce it.â€? Swegle allegedly destroyed three houses, two of which were owned by Davis at 2325 E. Ryan Drive and 309 N. Baker St., and the home of Alaric Bergeson and Rebecca Rand at 2337 E. Pioneer Road, authorities said. He also allegedly knocked down a power pole, damaged another house at 2313 E. Pioneer Road owned by Barbara Porter, destroyed Davisâ€™ tractor and ran over Davisâ€™ Ford F-250 pickup truck.
Fled home According to the arrest report, Davisâ€™ wife, Mary, fled the coupleâ€™s home as Swegle began bulldozing it, and Swegle also threatened Dan Davis, cornering him before Davis dodged the bulldozerâ€™s blade and ran. â€œSwegle said he got into the bulldozer and pushed the houses back,â€? the arrest report said. Said Unger while arguing for a bail reduction: â€œThe allegations, I realize, are serious, but they are property offenses. â€œClearly, if he had any intent to hurt anybody, this could have happened at night when someone was sleeping in the houses. â€œThere is not any evidence Swegle directed any of his alleged activity against a person,â€? she said. Murderers are held on less bail, Unger said. Troberg responded that Dan Davis â€œhad to run for his life.â€? He said Davisâ€™ wife, Mary, â€œwould have been crushed to death by the bulldozerâ€? if her husband had not called her to warn her Swegle was bulldozing his way toward the coupleâ€™s home, Troberg said. Swegle did not have â€œthe slightest concernâ€? that someone could be killed as a result of his actions, Troberg said. Burglary is unlawful entry with intent to commit a crime â€” â€œto wit, malicious mischief,â€? Troberg said in a later interview. â€œIn this case, the deadly weapon was the bulldozer,â€? he added.

PA fetes sidewalk, ferry dock opening BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” The tourist season in Port Angeles opened in grand fashion Saturday with a ceremony celebrating both the grand opening of the MV Coho ferry terminal and a newly completed stretch of sidewalk running along the south side of West Railroad Avenue. Business owners, passers-by and officials from the city, Port of Port Angeles and Black Ball Ferry Line â€” an estimated 75 people in all â€” turned out under overcast skies and just the slightest drizzling of rain to celebrate the grand openings. â€œI want to say thank you to the local business who have put up with this construction for so long,â€? said Ryan Malane, marketing director for Black Ball Ferry Line, which operates the
Coho, during the ceremony. Construction on the privately funded concrete dock, a $4 million project that replaced an aging pier, started last fall alongside the cityâ€™s $3.9 million esplanade project, which, in addition to improving the sidewalk along the south side of West Railroad Avenue, will add a concrete promenade extending over the water on the north side of Railroad.
and the Port of Port Angeles for their cooperation in helping to keep the ferry line in Port Angeles. The ferry line leases the ferry terminal site from the port under a 30-year agreement. â€œThe Black Ball will be here until you build the bridge [between Port Angeles and Victoria],â€? Cox said, receiving laughs and cheers from the crowd. Mayor Cherie Kidd said the ferry terminalâ€™s grand opening Saturday was just one piece of a long-standing partnership between the city and ferry line that has benefited both. â€œWe are true partners,â€? Kidd said. â€œTrue partners for 53 years.â€?
â€œYou can get there from here,â€? said Greg Scherer, owner of Pacific Rim Hobby at 138 W. Railroad Ave, referring to his business. Access to Schererâ€™s shop had been limited since October, when the city closed West Railroad Ave________ nue for the esplanade project.

CHEHALIS â€” A McCleary man has been sentenced to 26 years in prison for a 2012 attack on a judge and a deputy sheriff in the Grays Harbor County Courthouse in Montesano. Steven Kravetz was sentenced Friday, KOMO-TV said.
He had been convicted of first-degree assault for shooting Deputy Polly Davin and second-degree assault for stabbing Superior Court Judge David Edwards when the judge came to her rescue. Davin testified that she approached Kravetz on March 9, 2012, because he was acting oddly in

the courthouse. As Davin questioned him, prosecutors said Kravetz lashed out at her with a knife, cutting her cheek and throat. Davin reached for her gun, but Kravetz wrestled it away and shot her in the shoulder before fleeing. The defense argued that Kravetz had diminished capacity and didnâ€™t intend to kill anyone. Kravetz also was convicted of disarming a law enforcement officer, but a jury found him not guilty of the more serious charge of attempted murder.

OLYMPIA â€” As lawmakers wrapped up their first week of a special legislative session, Senate majority leaders asked that more than 30 bills be considered as part of the budget discussions. A list of 33 measures, obtained by The Associated Press on Friday, was submitted during a private meeting Thursday, including bills dealing with changes to the workersâ€™ compensation system, education bills and other bills tied to the budget, including funding for state parks and higher education. Senate Republican Leader Mark Schoesler declined to comment on the list. Lawmakers returned to the Capitol on Monday for a special legislative session to address a projected budget deficit of more than $1.2 billion for the next two-year budget, plus a court-ordered increase in funding for the stateâ€™s education system. Budget writers in the House and Senate have been meeting since the regular session adjourned
House priorities House Majority Leader Pat Sullivan said leaders in his chamber also have a lot of bills theyâ€™d like to see passed but that they havenâ€™t put forth a list because they want the priority to remain on the budget. He cautioned that if lawmakers are going to involve other measures in the budget process, the Legislature likely wouldnâ€™t be able to complete its work within the 30-day special session.

PORT TOWNSEND â€” Friends, admirers and business associates are invited to a reception this week in which 10 community heroes will be honored with the Jefferson County Heart of Service award for 2013. The award honors the â€œdedication, sacrifice and accomplishmentsâ€? of community leaders and volunteers â€œwho have made a difference in Jefferson County, who have made our communities a better place by doing extraordinary things for their neighbors, their community or the environment.â€? This is the eighth year for the Heart of Service award, sponsored by the Peninsula Daily News, the Rotary Club of Port Townsend (noon club), the Port Townsend Sunrise Rotary Club and the East Jefferson Rotary Club. The awards will be presented at a luncheon at the Northwest Maritime Center, 431 Water St. in downtown Port Townsend, at noon Tuesday. The luncheon is open to the public, and admission is free. Lunch costs $12 for soup, salad and a sandwich, and about $10 for soup and a salad. Attendees are asked to arrive by 11:45 a.m. The honorees are: â– â€œThe Three Amigosâ€?: Don B o l e n , Ernie Jaap and Fred Spann.

â€œWeâ€™ve got to focus on the budget,â€? Sullivan said. Some of the bills proposed by the Republicandominated majority in the Senate have been broadly opposed by Democrats. One would create a 401(k)-style retirement system that state workers could use instead of a pension. Another would assign a letter grade to schools. Another would overhaul state spending on environmental cleanup. Jaime Smith, a spokeswoman for Gov. Jay Inslee, said the office was disappointed that the Senate list became public, noting that it could complicate budget talks. The House and Senate have taken different approaches to balance state spending and increase funding for education, with the biggest difference centered on whether to raise revenue from extending taxes or eliminating tax breaks. The Senate is controlled by a coalition of 23 Republicans and two Democrats, and they passed a budget during the regular session that balances spending without new taxes, relying on cuts to social programs and fund transfers. Several Democrats who voted with Republicans on that budget have said they voted only to keep the process moving and told Senate Republican budget writer Andy Hill that doesnâ€™t mean theyâ€™d vote yes again if the same budget were proposed as a final budget. The Houseâ€™s budget would increase tax revenue by roughly $1 billion over the next two years, including a permanent extension of business taxes to raise more than a half-billion dollars. The plan also would repeal tax breaks for travel agents, bottled water and fuel.

The view from inside the bus BACK ON APRIL 7, I wrote about how I made up my mind to save the planet by taking a bus to the store. And let me tell you, that W. Bruce column was as Cameron exciting as a column about deciding to ride the bus could possibly be. Newspapers sold out around the world, and politicians suspended operations for the day, stating that there was no point in making speeches if “Cameron is going to hog all the media with his wonderful bus stories.” Ever since I wrote that piece, I’ve noticed that the people riding on buses look a lot more cheerful, smiling and waving out the windows, because finally someone has put into words what they’ve long known: You can’t ride a bus if you don’t first decide to ride a bus. Taking the bus is not as convenient as the way I usually prefer to travel, which is in a stretch limo with someone there to give me a foot rub, like maybe Naomi Watts or even Tom Hanks, who
said, “If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it.” (Yes, he really did say this. Maybe not about riding a bus, but he did say it.) Bus schedules can be confusing if you’re a man and don’t like to read instructions, and for some reason they refuse to pick you up at your door and drive you straight to your destination. But, having rather famously decided to take a bus — and yes, I’d accept a knighthood or other token of esteem if everyone wants to start some sort of grassroots campaign to honor me for this decision — it was now up to me to heroically take the next logical step, which was to get on the bus itself. With a pneumatic hiss, the doors to an immense city bus threw themselves open and I stepped aboard, somewhat disappointed that there hadn’t been more fanfare, like maybe a parade. I slipped my coins into the box, took my ticket and swayed down the narrow aisle to my seat, plunking down next to a man in his 30s who was clearly making a new start in the world, like so many of the passengers around me. Was he off to labor in the fields, perhaps, or to weld parts or carry boxes?
I asked him what he did for a living. “I’m the CFO of a software company,” he told me. “Good for you!” I gushed, wanting to encourage him. “That’s what makes this country great, is that anyone can just print up a business card and call himself the boss!” He frowned a little. “We had sales last year of $2 billion.” “That’s wonderful,” I said. “Hopefully one of these days

I’m not sure how long I was out, though when I awakened, I concluded that the bus on which I was riding must travel in one large circle, because what did I see out the window but my own bus stop!

Peninsula Voices Traffic cameras There has been discussion recently about the installation of “red-light cameras” to identify those who run through red lights or speed in school zones. Currently, more than 650 communities in the U.S. have installed these cameras, and as a result, both traffic infractions and accidents have gone down considerably. They appear to be a very cost-effective way for us to make our roads safer. There are some who worry about “Big Brother” watching us. Here in Washington state, only traffic violations can be cited from red-light camera footage. There have been some bills before the Legislature (none of which has passed) to allow the pictures to be
viewed by police in the investigation of more serious crimes. In all these bills, a judge needed to be convinced of probable cause before providing permission. Karen Campbell, Port Angeles

First look at how state will regulate pot ENTREPRENEURS LOOKING TO get in on the ground floor of the state’s legal marijuana market now have a blueprint. The state Liquor Control Board has issued the first draft of rules for the system of licensed, regulated and taxed cannabis that voters authorized in November. The 46 pages of rules are as specific as labels requiring a state logo and warnings — “May be habit forming. This product is unlawful outside Washington State” — but they are also notable for what they leave for the market to sort out. There’s no floor or ceiling on the size of business operations or the volume of pot they can sell. Nor is there a limit on the number of licenses to be handed out to growers and processors Dec. 1,
although there will be yet-to-bedetermined caps on the number of retail stores in each county, with lotteries if demand exceeds the local limits. The liquor board plans to start with a 30-day window for growers, processors and stores to apply for licenses. “This is an opportunity for all business types to jump in. It would’ve been easier for us to only allow large grows,” said Brian Smith, a spokesman for the Liquor Board. Still, the proposals present some challenges for any mom-and-pop operation, starting with security requirements. Businesses will need alarms on doors and windows, and 24-hour video surveillance capturing almost

Also required are 25 percent taxes at each level of sale, which could require bank accounts — and many banks won’t cooperate with what is still considered a federal crime. The rules are silent on exactly how taxes will be handed over — and Smith said the board is hoping the federal government will provide direction on banking.

Pinch yourself: The deficit is shrinking THE FEDERAL DEFICIT is shrinking more quickly than expected, and the government’s long-term debt has largely stabilized for the next decade, the Congressional Budget Office says in a report that could strengthen the Obama administration’s hand in the budget battles with congressional Republicans. The budget office continues David to say the fedLauter eral government faces a long-range budget problem — mostly caused by the costs of an aging population — but its new forecast pushes the crunch point for that problem off into a considerably more distant future: well after the 2020 presidential election. The deficit projection for this year — $642 billion — is almost 25 percent less than the deficit the budget office had forecast as recently as February. At the new level, the annual deficit would be back to where it was before President Barack Obama took office. It would continue to fall for the
rest of Obama’s tenure, the budget office now projects. By contrast, the deficit for fiscal year 2012 came in at just over $1 trillion. Three major factors account for most of the long-term improvement: a better economy, a continued slowdown in the rate of medical inflation — which reduces the cost of Medicare and Medicaid — and higher taxes that Congress approved as part of the “fiscal cliff” deal in January, the budget office said. In addition, the automatic budget cuts that took effect this spring have reduced spending in the short term. The government also will benefit this year from dividend payments it is getting from the two giant housing finance agencies bailed out during the financial crisis. The federal government’s annual deficit this year amounts to about 7 percent of the gross domestic product. By 2015, the budget office forecasts, the deficit will fall to just over 2 percent of GDP, a level that most economists would consider relatively insignificant. At that point, the deficit would begin to climb slowly again, reaching about 3.5 percent of GDP by the end of the decade.
The report also forecasts that the federal debt will shrink relative to the size of the economy for the rest of Obama’s term. The budget office expects the debt to begin to rise slowly after 2018 as the effects of an aging population increase the cost of retirement programs. The federal deficit is the gap between what the government spends each year and its revenue, mostly taxes. The government has run a deficit almost every year for the past half-century. The federal debt represents the accumulated money that the government borrows to cover that deficit. The numbers have an important political impact. Republicans have pushed for big reductions in government programs this year, arguing that the country could face a debt crisis if spending is not curtailed. The Obama administration and congressional Democrats have argued that big new reductions have less urgency because the budget picture is already getting better. The new figures from the budget office, which both parties rely on as a nonpartisan arbiter, will probably give more impetus to the Democrats’ position. The report also signaled that
the next confrontation in Washington’s budget wars may not come until late fall. Republican leaders have planned to push for budget cuts when Congress next votes on raising the federal debt ceiling. Because the debt is now growing more slowly than expected, the deadline for that vote probably won’t come until October or November, the report says. Underscoring the political dynamic, Republicans, who trumpeted news of higher deficits during Obama’s first term, fell largely silent in reaction to the new figures. The office of House Speaker John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, declined to comment. The House Budget Committee, chaired by Rep. Paul D. Ryan, R-Wis., issued a short statement calling the report a “fresh reminder of Washington’s out-ofcontrol spending” and noting that by decade’s end the federal government will collect $5 trillion in tax revenue. Liberal Democrats, by contrast, said the new numbers showed that government spending was falling too fast and that the sharply lower deficits amounted to an austerity policy that is hurting economic growth. Maya MacGuineas, head of the
Campaign to Fix the Debt, issued a statement calling the updated numbers “a good sign” but added that the country still faced a “long-term fiscal imbalance.” In January, GOP leaders got a deal through the House to avert the so-called fiscal cliff, but only by relying on Democratic votes. Aides to the leadership admit that no consensus exists among their members about how to raise the debt ceiling and avoid a default by the government when the deadline hits. The president maintains that the debt ceiling should be raised without any conditions attached. Republicans are expected to continue to insist upon some concessions — either new budget cuts or, perhaps, a commitment to reforming the federal tax code. “We’re going to have a big conversation with our members . . . to talk about a way forward,” Boehner said last week. “Dealing with the long-term structural spending problem we have, frankly, is at the core of it. But we also know we can’t cut our way to prosperity. We need real economic growth.”

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Sunday, May 19, 2013 SECTION
SCOREBOARD In this section
B Prep Notes
Aiming for top at state BOTH THE PORT Angeles and Chimacum boys golf teams could make some major noise at their state tournaments starting Tuesday. They’re not the Bobbsey Brad Twins but both 2013 teams and LaBrie circumstances are eerily similar. Both the Roughriders and Cowboys have very long-time coaches, Port Angeles’ Mark Mitrovich is in his 27th year but Chimacum’s Mitch Black is the granddaddy of golf coaches in his 37th year. They are both league champions and dominated their respective conferences, both have big-time tournament success and both are sending a ton of players to state. The Riders have the best chance of doing well at state by sending five to the tournament, the most ever in 27 years, while the Cowboys are sending three. The similarity doesn’t end there, though. The teams are loaded with just very polite, and as both coaches say, very nice and likeable young men. If sportsmanship awards were given at every event, the Riders and Cowboys would have a wheelbarrow full each. “This is a really special group of guys,” Black said earlier in the season right after the Cowboys won the Nisqually Classic tournament. “They are good students, outstanding athletes and are a lot of fun to coach.” Mitrovich said this about his Riders: “There are no finer people to work with than these guys.” The five Riders heading to 2A state are two-time Olympic League MVP Joe Barnes, Garrett Payton, Alex Atwell, Micah Needham and Austin Underwood. The three Cowboys set for 1A state are Riley Downs, Kevin Miller and Nathan Browning. Just missing the cut to state for Chimacum were Cole Lovekamp and Jack Hilt. “I wish Hilt and Lovekamp could have made it,” Black said. Hilt’s a sophomore and will have a couple of more chances during his career. The two teams have played against each other in at least two tournaments this year, and Black has noticed the outstanding sportsmanship the Riders display on the course in every outing. “They are nice guys,” Black said about the Riders. “He [Mitrovich] has done a great job this year.” The two teams are 1-1 going head-to-head in tournaments, and ironically, each team won at the other squad’s home course with the Cowboys finishing ahead of the Riders at Port Angeles’ Duke Streeter Memorial Invitational at Peninsula Golf Club, and the Riders winning the Cowboys’ own Port Ludlow Invitational at Port Ludlow Golf Club.
PA aims for best finish The Riders had their best state finish ever last year under Mitrovich, claiming fifth place in the 2A tournament, just a half-point out of fourth. They’re hoping to shatter that performance this year with their goal a top-three finish. TURN

Crescent wins again Logger boys first, girls third at 17-team meet PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — Crescent track and field had another banner day at the Quad-District track and field meet at Port Angeles High School. The Logger boys added another championship to their 2013 resume, and the girls had another solid showing with a third-place finish in the 17-team event. The top three placers in each event advanced to the 1B state championships Friday and Saturday at Eastern Washington University in Cheney. The North Olympic Peninsula will be represented by 18 athletes at the 1B meet. Crescent had 12 individuals, five boys and seven girls, qualify. Clallam Bay is sending four, and Neah Bay two. “This meet is always filled with so much excitement,” Crescent coach Darrell Yount said. “You can literally feel the anticipation and competitiveness building as the meet pro-
Track gresses, with so much on the line.” The Clallam Bay boys placed eighth while the Bruins girls team finished 10th. Neah Bay’s boys took 15th, and its girls finished ninth. Super-sprinter Justin Welever was a double winner for Clallam Bay. He ran the 100meter dash in 11.75 seconds and the 200 in 23.96 seconds. He is ranked fourth in 1B in the 100 and sixth in the 200. By beating state powers Wishkah Valley and Mount Rainier Lutheran, the Crescent boys find themselves in the familiar position of entering the state championships as one of the title favorites. Expect a great battle between Crescent, Wellpinit, Republic, Wishkah Valley and last year’s defending champion, Valley Christian of Spokane. TURN

M’s waste 9th inning rally in 5-4 loss THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
CLEVELAND — Two ninth-inning losses in two days have left the Seattle Mariners reeling and frustrated. Mark Reynolds’ basesloaded fielder’s choice in the ninth inning Saturday scored Jason Kipnis and gave the Cleveland Indians a 5-4 victory over Seattle. The Mariners had tied the score in the top of the ninth on two-out home runs by Raul Ibanez and Justin Smoak off Indians closer Chris Perez, but lost in heartbreaking fashion for the second time in less than 24 hours. On Friday night, Kipnis hit a game-ending threerun homer in the 10th inning to give Cleveland a 6-3 win. “You don’t see that very often, to hit two solo homers off a top closer like Perez, then they come back and snatch it in the bottom of the inning,” Seattle manager Eric Wedge said, shaking his head. “This was a tough one.” Mariners reliever Oliver Perez (1-1) started the ninth, but allowed all three Indians he faced to reach base. The veteran left-hander surrendered a single to Kipnis and a double to Asdrubal Cabrera after going up 0-2 to both hitters, then intentionally walked Nick Swisher to load the bases.

Seattle’s Raul Ibanez watches the ball after hitting a solo home run off Cleveland relief pitcher Chris Perez in the ninth inning Saturday in Cleveland. Rookie Yoervis Medina entered and Reynolds hit a sharp grounder to shortstop Brendan Ryan, but catcher Jesus Montero came off home plate after taking the throw. Kipnis scored standing up, making Chris Perez (2-0) the winner after blowing the save minutes ear-
lier. “I thought I had him,” said Ryan, whose right knee was bloodied while making the stop. “I haven’t seen the replay, so I don’t know exactly what happened, but I did the best I could.” Wedge had plenty to say, especially about Montero’s inability to record the force
out. “The throw beat him, but Monty came off the plate early,” said Wedge, a former major league catcher. “You have to stand on the plate, but he came out a little bit early. We got the ground ball we wanted — Ryno made a great play — but we didn’t get it done.”
Montero said Ryan’s throw pulled him slightly toward first base, which was enough to slide his left foot onto the dirt. “Brandon made an unbelievable diving catch and I tried hard to stay on the plate,” said Montero. “We usually block the plate, but the ball was a lit-
tle too far and I couldn’t do it.” The Mariners trailed 4-0 when starter Joe Saunders was pulled after 5 1/3 innings and a season-high 120 pitches. The lefty was rocked for 11 hits, including a home run by Reynolds in the fifth, and remained winless on the road in 2013. Saunders is 0-4 with an 11.25 ERA in away games, but a sparkling 3-0 with an 0.94 ERA at Safeco Field. “I’m gonna sacrifice a chicken before my next road start,” Saunders joked. “This is just kind of a fluky thing. I told [pitching coach Carl Willis] in the fifth that I’d go 150 pitches if I had to. I gave everything I had and battled my butt off today.” Seattle reliever Danny Farquhar, who was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma on Friday, made his first big league appearance since 2011 with Toronto. He tossed 2 2/3 perfect innings and struck out five after replacing Saunders. Indians right-hander Zach McAllister took a shutout into the eighth, but was chased with one out when he allowed a two-run homer to Ryan. It was Ryan’s first home run since Sept. 23, 2012, and landed on the home run porch in left. Ibanez’s blast was his second in two games against Cleveland.
Preps: All-Olympic League baseball team set CONTINUED FROM B1 “We were hot. We crushed the ball all over the place,” Riders coach Randy Steinman said. Reid’s bat was the most scorching. She drove in seven runs and ending the game with a grand slam in the bottom of the fifth inning. She also had a double and a triple, falling a single short of hitting for the cycle. Sarah Steinman added two hits and two RBI, and Tori Kuch drove in a run and had two hits. Sarah Steinman pitched four innings of one-hit ball, striking out six, to earn the win. Her pitching was another major factor in Port Angeles’ two wins. She opened the Riders’ second game by walking the first two batters in muddy conditions in the bottom of the first before a downpour postponed the game until Saturday morning. When the game resumed, Steinman picked up where she left off, walking another batter to load the bases with no outs. But she proceeded to
“We’re feeling good; we secured a berth to state,” Randy Steinman said. “We’re getting hot at the right time, and that’s what you want to do.” First Game Port Angeles 14, Orting 2 (5 innings) Orting 1 0 1 0 0 — 2 2 5 Port Angeles 0 7 0 2 5 — 14 14 4 WP- Steinman Pitching Statistics Port Angeles: Steinman 4IP, H, 6K, 0ER; Cristion IP, H.

Sequim third baseman Olivia Kirsch reaches for the ball while the Sumner runner reaches base safely in the district tourney Friday. strike out the next three batters to end the threat. Port Angeles opened the game with five runs in the top of first (prior to the overnight rain delay), and it was more than enough, as Steinman took a no-hitter into the sixth inning, and struck out 10 to record another win. Maddy Hinrichs led the Riders with two hits and scored a run, and Steinman doubled, drove in a pair of runs and scored another. Perhaps due to its scouting of the Orting game,
Franklin Pierce, also the Cardinals, walked Reid twice. She still managed a hit, an RBI and a run. In the two games of the tournament, Reid tallied four hits, three runs and eight RBI. Port Angeles (19-3) will play the winner between Olympic (11-12) and White River (17-4), the tournament’s top seed, on Monday at 3 p.m. The Trojans and Hornets will play at 1 p.m. The Riders have already
defeated both teams this year. They swept the Trojans during the Olympic League season. They beat the Hornets 4-2 in March, though Randy Steinman noted it was a nonleague game, so neither team played its best players for the entire game. If Port Angeles wins, it moves on to the district championship game. Should the Riders lose, they will play for the district’s third seed at state.

to make first-team honors. Olympic’s Shane Matheny, a junior, was voted MVP while Olympic’s Nate Andrews was selected as the coach of the year. North Mason was given the sportsmanship award. The Roughriders had three players named to the second team while Sequim and Port Townsend each had one player picked. Senior Marcus Konopaski was named the second-team catcher while brother Brady Konopaski, a junior, was the second baseman, and senior Brian DeFrang made the team as an outfielder. Sequim junior first baseman Nick Johnston and Port Townsend sophomore utility player Sean Dwyer also made the second team. Honorable mention honors went to Port Angeles senior pitcher Wes Giddings, senior shortstop Michael Konopaski and senior outfielder Kevin Herzog, and to Port Townsend senior outfielder Devon Courtney and junior pitcher Cody Russell, and to Sequim junior catcher Brett Wright.

your game. To just enjoy playing. To enjoy every shot. “I tell them not to think about the score. The more you think, the worse your game is.” The team is led by ace Barnes, the senior team captain, and Payton, the senior team co-captain. Barnes has been the league’s top player two years running, and had a best nine-hole average of 38.4, while Payton is the league’s No. 3 player with a 39.6 average. Barnes has been a consistent player the past two years. “He’s still shooting in the mid-70s,” Mitrovich said. The standout senior had a slight dip at one point in the season but has recovered. “Joey definitely is on the upswing again,” Mitrovich said. Barnes’ value to the team transcends his ability to score low. “Joey has been such a
helpful teammate to the other kids,” Mitrovich said. “He goes all the way helping these kids. He thinks more about them than himself.” Atwell, just a sophomore, finished fourth in league with a 40.6 average. He has cut his average 18-hole score by more than eight strokes since his freshman year. He is shooting 81.2 this year compared to 89.6 last season. “Alex has really matured,” Mitrovich said. “The all-league player has gotten more consistent.” All the Riders are great athletes as well as being hard workers and great students of the game, Mitrovich said. They all have good eyeand-hand coordination and they all can hit the ball a mile. “The farther you can drive it, the easier the game becomes,” Mitrovich said. “All of our players on varsity have good length.”
Payton especially has a strong swing. “Garrett has pretty high club speeds,” Mitrovich said. The coach is expecting his Riders to continue playing well at the state meet. “We are peaking,” he said. “The kids support one another as a team. These guys have strong work ethics, they are very coachable, and they are just nice people.”
Cowboys set for state Chimacum also continues along its road to a strong state finish. The Cowboys play Tuesday and Wednesday at the 1A tournament at Lake Spanaway Golf Course in Spanaway. They won the Nisqually League with a 7-0 record, won the Nisqually Classic and was second at both the Tim Higgins Memorial tourney and Duke Streeter. The Cowboys tied for first at Duke Streeter with powerhouse Shelton but
lost in a playoff to the fourtime consecutive winner. “We are having a great season,” Black said. “Kevin Miller has made the biggest leap for us. He has been a steady, consistent golfer all year. “Riley Downs is our gamer. He scores well in the big meets. “Nathan Browning is a great kid with a good swing.” Browning will be making his third appearance at state while Miller will be making his second. “If the three pit it together at state, we could make a run at it,” Black said. Both teams will be putting their best foot forward at state in just two days, which shouldn’t be too hard with the quality of their eight state-caliber players.

Track: Crescent boys capture crown CONTINUED FROM B1 But the Loggers, who finished second at state in 2012 — losing out to Valley Christian by just two points — return to state with a much different kind of team. Last year, Crescent relied on the dominant twosome of Joel Williams and Matt Waldrip, who finished first and second in the 300meter hurdles, second and fourth in the 110 hurdles and were half of the runnerup 4x100-meter relay and third-place 4x400 relay. This year, the Loggers will look to a trio of throwers for points. Josh Sowder placed second at the Quad meet in both the shot put (42 feet, 8 inches) and the discus (12406). Gene Peppard was third in the shot put with a heave of 42-07, one inch short of Sowder. Derrick Findley was second in the javelin with a throw that surpassed 152 feet. Yount said all three have a legitimate chance to place in the top three at state. Findley also had a second-place finish in the long jump with a 19-02. Clallam Bay’s Casey Randall was right behind him with a 19-01. Donovan Christie won the high jump with a leap of 5 feet, 9 inches. He took second in the event at last year’s state championships. The final Crescent boys qualifier is sophomore Martin Waldrip, who shattered his personal record in the 3,200-meter run with a time of 10 minutes, 34 seconds. “Martin ran superb.

By utilizing the veteran as a pacer, Martin just eased himself away from the rest of the field. “Just a very smart and comfortable race.” Neah Bay’s Elisha Winck finished second in the triple jump with a distance of 40-08.
Wonderly takes third Jesse Wonderly of Clallam Bay qualified by placing third in the 400-meter run. The day wasn’t without disappointment for the Crescent boys. “Watching our boys 4x100 relay finish in a nonadvancing fourth position, after running a great race, is kind of hard to take,” Yount said. “We will get to state in a week and see teams with very inferior times to our relay [team’s time] competing, and that will just add to the sting of it. “But that’s track.” The Crescent girls team was led again by its sprinters. Jandi Frantz, Nycole McNaughton, Ryan Lester and Kellie Belford teamed to storm the track to a very fast third place in the days’ first race, the 4x200 relay.
That helped fuel the fire of the always wicked-fast Logger hurdlers, Lester and Devanie Christie, as they ran a competitive race and took second and third to easily advance. In the 4x100 relay, Belford, Frantz, Lester and Christie flew around the track in one of quartet’s fastest times of the season — back into the 54-second range — to easily advance. Devanie Christie also qualified for state in the javelin by winning against an ultra-competitive field. She found herself securely in third place, with a spot at state wrapped up, before her final throw. “Devanie took one big breath to prepare for her final throw, flew down the javelin runway, set herself up with a big powerful plant and launched the throw of her life,” Yount said. The javelin jumped off her hand and sailed out past the 111-foot line, the second-best mark in the state this year. Meagan Shamp set a new personal record and notched a second-place showing for the Loggers with a hurl of 98 feet, 11 inches. Neah Bay’s Faye Chartraw placed second in the shot put with a 31-06, followed by Crescent’s Shannon Williams in third place. Clallam Bay eighthgrader Molly McCoy quali-

BALTIMORE — Oxbow, one of three starters for the Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas, held off Itsmyluckyday by a length and three-quarters to win the 138th running of the Preakness Stakes on Saturday at Pimlico Race Course. Orb, who was trying to continue his Triple Crown quest, finished a disappointing fourth behind Oxbow, who completed the mile and three-sixteenths on a fast track in 1 minute 57.54 seconds. Lukas’s 14th Triple Crown win allowed him to surpass Sunny Jim Fitzsimmons for the career lead. It also was the sixth victory for Lukas in the Preakness, putting him in second place. “I get paid to spoil dreams,” Lukas said after the race. “You can’t mail them in. It’s a different surface, different time.” Oxbow, who finished sixth in the Kentucky Derby, led from wire to wire, becoming the first to do so here since 1982. He received a flawless ride from the 50-year-old Gary Stevens, who left his analyst job to go back to the place where he feels most comfortable, the racetrack. “It’s so special,” Stevens, who won his third Preakness, said of the 15-1 upset.
“Wayne supported me all along. Wayne is like a brother, a coach and a father figure to me.” Shug McGaughey, another Hall of Fame trainer, who earned his elusive Derby win with Orb on the first Saturday in May,

River run: Your dog and water safety RIVERS HAVE ALWAYS been a part of my life. I grew up in Sacramento, Calif., a city that began at the spot where two mighty rivers meet. Such placement has always been a risky business, and the levees that hold the waters in place don’t seem strong enough many a year. But even when the rivers stay where we want them, they’re still plenty dangerous — to swimmers, to boaters and to the dogs who love the water as much as we do. Most times, some caution on the part of their owners — not only around rivers but near any body of water — would prevent potential problems. The keys to water safety for dogs: prevention, preparedness and awareness. At this time of year, I always like to remind everyone that yes, dogs drown. And no, they don’t know better than to just swim — even when it’s dangerous. You need to look out for

roundings, survey the area for safety. Rivers and oceans can change frequently, and an area that was safe for swimming one visit can be treacherous the next. Consider currents, tides, underwater hazards and even the condition of the water. In the late summer, algae scum on the top of standing water can be toxic, producing substances that can kill a pet who swallows the tainted water. When in doubt, no swimming. Better safe than sorry. One of the best things you can do is to take courses in first aid and CPR for your pets. Many local Red Cross chapters offer these classes, and some veterinarians may
also teach them in your community. A dog who’s pulled out near death from drowning may be saved by your prompt actions — if you know what to do. If your dog isn’t much of a swimmer or is older or debilitated, get him a personal flotation device. These are especially great for family boating trips because most have sturdy handles for rescue if a pet goes overboard. Last year, I moved from a neighborhood near one river to a little farm closer to another. This year, I’ll be extra careful before I let my retriever swim because I don’t know the hazards here yet, and I need to before I throw a stick into the current for the first time.
The Buzz — with Dr. Marty Becker and Gina Spadafori ■ Some dogs need their space. That’s the message of YellowDogProject.com,
which is raising awareness of the meaning of a yellow ribbon on a dog’s leash. The ribbons mean a dog may be fearful, aggressive or even too fragile to be pounced on by friendly people or dogs. Sometimes the situation is temporary and the dog is being rehabilitated, either physically or mentally. But sometimes the Yellow Ribbon status is permanent. The website says the concept has been introduced in almost 50 countries. It’s based on putting a ribbon on horse’s tail to indicate an animal who may kick.

Loch no match for Crescentâ€™s beauty I CAN STILL remember my disappointment when we first saw Scotlandâ€™s Loch Lomond. It is a beautiful lake, but those who have eulogized it over the decades never saw Lake Crescent, about 30 minutes west of Port Angeles. Even when the weather is wet, windy and wild, it is an outstanding illustration of the beautiful Northwest wilderness. On a recent trip to the North Olympic Peninsula, we kept repeating one simple phrase: â€œIsnâ€™t it beautiful today?â€?
Canada goose nest Clear blue skies, bright spring greens and warm temperatures made the drive extra special, and then something else was added to the scene. Every year since first spotting the Canada goose on her nest, we check to see if she has returned. Itâ€™s a wonderful location for a goose nest. An Yvonne Davis painting
BIRD WATCH hangs in our living room Carson because the subject and its setting capture your attention and imagination. The Canada goose in the painting is sitting on eggs while snuggled into the top of an old broken-off stump large enough to hold a goose family. When we spotted a similar scene many years later, it differed a little from the painting. The geese on Lake Crescent also raise their family in the top of a large old stump, but it sits in the lake some distance offshore. You must keep an eye out, or you pass it before getting a good look.
There always seems to be someone riding your bumper as you drive U.S. Highway 101 past Lake Crescent. A quick stop is impossible â€” and dangerous. Not only was the female on the nest, but the male was sharing it with her. I suspect she was on eggs and he on guard. On our return trip, only the female was there. Iâ€™m eager to return in a week or two to see if the brood has left the nursery. The reason for this trip was to check our cabin on the Hoh River and see how (or whether) it survived another winter. Early May on a sunny day is a great time to visit and bird the north Peninsula. Not long after we arrived at the cabin, I had the feeling we had been time-warped weeks ahead from when we left home. Birds were calling throughout the rain forest, and instead of getting back in touch with one
species one day and perhaps another a few days later, they were all singing, and it was the first time weâ€™d heard them since last year. Orange-crowned warblers and goldfinches were active in our yard at home. The purple martins returned the morning we left for the cabin, but everyone seemed to be back on territory on the Peninsula. Wilsonâ€™s warblers, blackthroated gray warblers and even a Hammondâ€™s flycatcher were calling. Robins, varied thrush, song sparrows, chickadees, kinglets, winter wrens, hairy woodpeckers and juncos were just part of the chorus.
Ruffed grouse, juncos The juncos were obviously nesting in a brush pile left over from last yearâ€™s work. A ruffed grouse had found a log for drumming that was not far from the cabin.
Most of the birds mentioned here are year-round residents, and they were an example of how early our native birds commence nesting. Warblers, vireos, flycatchers, tanagers and black-headed grosbeaks arrive about now, but they will nest later. Natural food supply dictates when they nest because they need adequate food for the young. Ripening berries and a more abundant bug population come with warming weather, and that lengthens the time we can enjoy nesting birds. Hopefully, the good weather is going to be a regular part of our lives in the weeks to come because weâ€™re looking for any excuse to return to the Hoh. After all, that Canada goose nest needs monitoring.

Briefly . . . Stove-building workshop set this Saturday PORT TOWNSEND â€” A biochar stove-building workshop will be held at the Quimper Grange, 1219 Corona St., from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. Biochar is the resulting product of pyrolosis â€” the thermochemical decomposition of organic material â€” in a simple gasifier stove. Participants will help build five 55-gallon biochar stoves, learn how to operate a variety of smaller stoves and learn about the benefits of applying biochar to home gardens. Biochar can be a useful soil amendment, retaining moisture and nutrients that promote healthy soil fauna. When buried, biochar can sequester carbon in the soil for thousands of years. A potluck lunch will be cooked on the stoves, so attendees are encouraged to bring some food to share. Suggested donation for the workshop is $20, though no one will be turned away. To take home one of the stoves, the total cost of the workshop and equipment is $90. All proceeds benefit the Quimper Grange. For more information or to register, contact Francesco Tortorici at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 360-385-5068.

When I asked if I could bring “Sam,” I was told, “No, we don’t know him, and there are a lot of other people we would like to invite.” I got the same response from my first cousin when I asked if I could bring Sam to her son’s wedding: “No, we don’t have room for him, and we don’t know him.” Abby, Sam and I are a couple; he is not a casual boyfriend.

In honor of parents who get it right ITâ€™S THAT MOTHERâ€™S Day-Fatherâ€™s Day time of the year, so today we salute one of each who got it right.
Pam We struggled with infertility. I was afraid to adopt because I was afraid the biological parent would take the baby away. There was a big story about that in news at that time. But my husband Nick found an adoption attorney who knew the Illinois adoption laws. So while I was ready to fly to a foreign country to adopt, my husband calmly took control of the domestic adoption of both our boys. When we brought our first son to our pediatrician, who was also a family friend, he told Nick not to be a 1950s dad. And he never has been. Heâ€™s been hands-on since both boys were born. He diapered them, fed them, gave them their baths and read and prayed with them every night. I think heâ€™s been a better dad than Iâ€™ve been a mom. To this day, he chauffeurs them to their activities more than me. Heâ€™s been on their field trips, participated in Science Dads at their elementary school and even played St. Nicholas at our church.
