OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — The Elwha River Valley echoed with the abrasive sound of machinery Thursday as an excavator chipped away at the top of Glines Canyon Dam. Clouds of dust rose from the 210foot structure constructed in 1927 as

the excavator equipped with a 5-inch-diameter hammer punched its way into the large mass of concrete from a barge. The demolition work marked the much-anticipated start of a three-

year process to remove the river’s two dams and free about 70 miles of pristine habitat for migrating salmon. The Glines Canyon Dam — sister to the downstream Elwha Dam, which also will be removed — will be the tallest dam dismantled in the nation’s history.

The Elwha Dams — Part 6

PORT ANGELES — The Elwha River is attracting an abundance of creatures — in numbers greater than expected — to what is described in the event program as “one of those great turning points.” The Elwha River Science Symposium — which began Thursday with the first of 32 presentations on sediment, salmon, sea otters, black bears, birds and estuary morphology — continues today in the Sciences Building at Diane Urbani de la Paz/Peninsula Daily News Peninsula College, 1502 E.

Newsmakers Celebrity scoop ■ By The Associated Press

Seattle icon J.P. Patches bids adieu AFTER 53 YEARS as a hero for generations of Northwest and British Columbia children, it’s time for J.P. Patches to exit. Chris Wedes, who has played the classic clown on Seattle TV and at hundreds of Northwest Patches personal appearances — including one in Port Angeles in 2007 — will make his last public appearance Saturday. Wedes, 83, is suffering from cancer and told The Seattle Times that his appearance at the Fishermen’s Fall Festival in Seattle will be Patches’ farewell. Wedes appeared as Julius Pierpont Patches, mayor of the City Dump and host to numerous celebrity guests, on KIRO-TV from 1958 to 1981. When his 23-year TV show was canceled, he took his clown act on the road. A statue of Patches and sidekick Gertrude (Bob Newman) running in opposite directions was dedicated in the Fremont section of Seattle in 2008. The Times reported that J.P. Patches has a private event scheduled for December, but Wedes, who has undergone cancer treatment for years, doesn’t think he’ll have the strength to perform. “I don’t feel like I have the old zing that you really need to get out there and greet your fans,” Wedes said.

ARTHUR EVANS, 68, who helped form and lead the movement that coalesced after gay people and their supporters protested a 1969 police raid on the Stonewall Inn, a Greenwich Village gay bar, died Sunday at his home in San Francisco. The cause was a heart attack, his friend Hal Offen said. Mr. Evans was found to have an aortic aneurysm last year. Mr. Evans was not at the Stonewall disturbances, but they fueled in him a militant fervor and inspired him to join the Gay Liberation Front, an organization started during the wave of gay assertiveness that followed. For Mr. Evans and other militants, however, the group was not

assertive enough. They worried it was diluting its effectiveness by taking stands on issues beyond gay rights — opposing the Vietnam War and racial discrimination, for example. So in December 1969, they split off to found the Gay Activists Alliance, choosing a name to suggest more aggressive tactics. Based in New York, the alliance became a model for gay rights organizations nationwide, pushing in New York for legislation to ban discrimination against gay men and lesbians in employment, housing and other areas.

His editor Baldini Castoldi Dalai said Mr. Bonatti, who was also a journalist, died suddenly from an undisclosed illness. The controversy with fellow climbers Achille Compagnoni and Lino Lacedelli over the ascent up Pakistan’s K2 in 1954 went on for years.

One was granted; the other was denied. Buck was sentenced to death for the fatal shootings of his exgirlfriend and a man in her apartment in July 1995.

WASHINGTON — The Treasury Department’s inspector general has opened an investigation of a $528 million government loan to Solyndra Inc., the now-bankrupt solar panel manufacturer once cited as a model of the Obama administration’s clean energy program. A spokesman said Thursday that the inspector general is reviewing the role and actions of the Federal Financing Bank, a government corporation supervised by the Treasury Department. The bank provided the lowinterest loan to the Fremont, Calif.-based company. The Treasury investigation is the latest government inquiry into the collapse of Solyndra, which filed for bankruptcy last month. The FBI has executed search warrants at Solyndra’s headquarters and talked to top executives. The Energy Department’s inspector general and the House Energy and Commerce Committee also are investigating Solyndra and the DOE’s Energy Loan Program, which has provided billions in loan guarantees to renewable energy companies.

Anthony must pay ORLANDO, Fla. — Casey Anthony must pay almost $100,000 in law enforcement costs for investigating the death of her 2-year-old daughter, a Florida judge ruled Thursday. Circuit Judge Belvin Perry’s ruling fell well short of the more than $500,000 that prosecutors and law enforcement agencies in Orlando asked for during a hearing earlier this month. Prosecutors had asked that Anthony be forced to pay those costs since she lied repeatedly to investigators who were searching for her missing toddler, Caylee, in summer 2008. The judge said the costs should only cover the period when detectives were investigating a missing person and not the homicide investigation — a sum of $97,676. Anthony was acquitted in July of murdering Caylee. But the 25-year-old was convicted of four misdemeanor counts of lying to authorities. The Associated Press

Cutting Pentagon only adds to job woes, Panetta warns The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Defense Secretary Leon Panetta warned Congress on Thursday that if lawmakers fail to agree on debt-ceiling talks and trigger $1 trillion in Pentagon budget cuts, they could add 1 percentage point to the nation’s jobless rate. Pentagon press secretary George Little said Panetta has relayed those numbers to lawmakers in person and in calls this week, urging Congress to avoid the deadlock that would require the sweeping cuts. Under the current deficitreduction plan, the Pentagon must slash more than $400 billion in defense spending over the next decade. In addition, a newly created

Quick Read

deficit-cutting supercommittee has until Nov. 23 to reach a consensus on budget cuts. If the committee members can’t agree, or if Congress rejects its plan, automatic cuts of $1.2 trillion would hit the government accounts, with half coming from defense spending. The trillion dollar total, Little said, would be devastating for the military, forcing spending reductions that likely would necessitate shrinking the size of the Army, Air Force and Marine Corps to the smallest numbers in decades and also lead to the smallest Navy in nearly 100 years. “We would break faith with those in uniform who are serving. At a time of war, that’s unacceptable,” Little told reporters traveling with Panetta back to Wash-

ington after security meetings with Australian leaders in San Francisco. Citing a new Pentagon analysis, Little said the defense industrial base provides 3.8 million private sector jobs. He said the 1 percentage point increase in the unemployment rate would include government, military and private sector jobs. He did not know how many jobs that entails or how many could be lost in the individual government and private sectors. The current national unemployment rate is 9.1 percent. Panetta and his predecessor, Robert Gates, have insisted that government leaders and lawmakers must decide what they want their military to be able to do, and then cut the budget accordingly.

TRAFFIC WAS MOVING smoothly in both directions at the U.S.-Mexico border crossing south of San Diego on Thursday morning, a day after an overhead structure collapse injured 11, caused the closure of all northbound lanes and created a traffic nightmare for those trying to enter the United States. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials scrambled to reopen the nation’s busiest land crossing. By midnight, 13 of 24 vehicle lanes were cleared, as well as the bus lane. Wednesday’s closure led to massive traffic jams on some of the busiest streets in Tijuana, Mexico.

According to a police affidavit, the young mother said she didn’t tell her family she was expecting, but believes she got pregnant in January and never visited a doctor.

It orbits two stars that are 200 light-years from Earth. Though there have been past hints of the existence of other planets that circled double stars, scientists said this is the first confirmation.

Bleak forecast puts state more in red By Mike Baker

The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — Washington faces a $1.3 billion budget shortfall after a revenue forecast issued Thursday determined the economy was not showing the signs of recovery that officials had initially expected. Lawmakers said they were discussing new ways to address the shortfall, just a few months after finalizing a plan that would reduce projected spending by $4.6 billion. Gov. Chris Gregoire was considering the possibility of asking the Legislature to come back soon to start bal-

ancing the budget, ahead of the scheduled January return of the lawmakers. The Economic and Revenue Forecast Council, which lawmakers look to for guidance on how much to spend, had projected three months ago that the state would have money remaining at the end of the budget cycle, thanks to anticipated growth in the economy. But the latest forecast was $1.4 billion lower, leaving lawmakers with a $1.3 billion hole even if they spend all the money set aside in a rainy-day fund. “I truly wish I could

assure you that this nightmare is about to end, but I see no end in sight,” said Arun Raha, the state’s chief economist. Republicans’ budget writers said tax increases were not acceptable. They have the power to block any such proposals because of a voter-approved initiative that requires a two-thirds legislative majority to pass them. “How do you get more revenue out of people who still don’t have work?” asked Republican Rep. Ed Orcutt of Kalama. Democrats were considering a proposal that would

ask voters to approve taxes in order to support education, which has faced deep cuts. Sen. Ed Murray, D-Seatt­le, said lawmakers need to work on getting a plan together to pass before January. “We’re going to act,” Murray said. “We’re going to do the responsible thing.”

Find savings Democratic Rep. Ross Hunter said the state will likely need to find more than $1.3 billion in savings because there is opposition to spending the money in the rainy-day fund.

He said he would like to see the state leave an additional cash buffer for the current budget in order to handle additional volatility. Raha blamed the economic weakness on factors outside of the state, including political gridlock in the nation’s capital and troubles in Europe. Because of the challenges of forecasting what will happen with the economy over an 18-month period, the state has issued both optimistic and pessimistic deviations that could leave the state with roughly $2 billion more or $2 billion

less than projections. Gregoire has already asked state agencies to prepare for cuts as high as 10 percent.

Reductions’ impact She said in a statement that it’s clear the state will be required to implement most of those reductions. “The level of cuts will impact the educational future of our children, compromise public safety and put the most vulnerable at risk,” Gregoire said. “These impacts will be felt in communities across the state.”

Bank of America to close Forks branch By Arwyn Rice

Peninsula Daily News

FORKS — The Forks Bank of America branch will close in January as part of a wave of corporate service center closures across the U.S. Customers of the branch at 481 S. Forks Ave. will begin to receive written notices of the Jan. 20 closure today, said Britney Sheehan, spokeswoman for Bank of America. Employees will be given the option to transfer to other branches or be offered other options, including retraining for other local jobs and severance packages, Sheehan said. “We’re trying to find positions for them,” she said.

Meeting room Forks Mayor Bryon Monohon said the building is not owned by Bank of America and that the manager of the property told him the meeting room comm­only used by community groups will continue to be available. The Bank of America’s community meeting room has been a focal point of festivals and celebrations in Forks, housing the annual Quillayute Valley Scholarship Auction and Forks Festival of Trees, as well as plant sales and exhibits for such celebrations as the Fourth of July and Stephenie Meyer Day. Monohon said he expects that the building will be quickly reoccupied. “It’s a great space and

Border Patrol arrest based on a tip By Paul Gottlieb

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — A South Korean national arrested by the U.S. Border Patrol at the Port Angeles Farmers Market on Sept. 3 was apprehended “after receiving a citizen’s report of a suspicious person,” according to the agency’s Blaine Sector office. Hung Han, 37, is being held by U.S. Customs & Immigration Enforcement at the ICE’s Tacoma Northwest Detention Center pending a deportation hearing before a federal immigration court in Seattle, ICE spokeswoman Virginia Kice said this week. A two-sentence description of Han’s arrest was added to a weekly report of Border Patrol arrests that

has been provided since February to Bellingham media, Blaine Sector office spokesman Richard Sinks said this week. The report, which consisted of Border Patrol arrests in Whatcom County, was made available to media at the request of citizens concerned about the Border Patrol’s presence in the Bellingham area, Sinks said. The Peninsula Daily News had requested that the report include a similar accounting of arrests made by Border Patrol agents stationed in Port Angeles, which is part of the Blaine Sector and covers the North Olympic Peninsula. The report does not include arrests that have led to active investigations,

Sinks said. Residents in Clallam and Jefferson counties have raised concerns and held demonstrations about stepped-up Border Patrol staffing and a new $5.7 million headquarters being built about two miles east of downtown Port Angeles.

At farmers market Han was detained by Border Patrol agents at about 2:30 p.m. Sept. 3 while helping his parents pack up their produce stand at the Port Angeles Farmers Market. “After receiving a citizen’s report of a suspicious person, agents apprehended a citizen of South Korea in Port Angeles,” the Border Patrol report said. “Subject was found to be

illegally present in the U.S. and was processed for removal.” Han’s sister, Chong Han, told the Peninsula Daily News on Sept. 4 that her brother had been in the United States for six years and had not become a legal resident. She would not comment Thursday on the case.

Forks jail The list of apprehensions in the report also included a Mexican citizen taken into custody Aug. 30 at the Forks jail. “The subject had been arrested in July for DUI and had also been previously ordered removed from the U.S. in 2005. Subject was processed for reinstatement of a prior deportation

order,” the report said. Four other arrests were cited in the report, all of which resulted in foreign nationals being processed for removal from the United States. Taken into custody were a Sri Lanka citizen in Fairhaven, a Cuban citizen near Blaine, a Polish citizen near Blaine and a Mexican citizen by Quinault tribal police. The Quinault reservation is mostly in Grays Harbor County, but a small portion is in Southwestern Jefferson County. Further information about the arrests was not provided by the Border Patrol. Christian Sanchez, a Border Patrol agent stationed in Port Angeles who

has publicly criticized the agency for being overstaffed, told a government watchdog group earlier this summer that more than 40 agents operate out of Port Angeles in a number that is “still increasing.” He likened his work to “a black hole, swallowing us up slowly, with no purpose, no mission.” The number of Border Patrol agents in Port Angeles was 26 in April 2009, up from four in 2006. The new Border Patrol headquarters at 110 S. Penn St., slated for completion in April, has a 50-agent capacity.

Quileute chairwoman testifies to subpanel Case made for higher elevation By Arwyn Rice

Peninsula Daily News

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Quileute Chairwoman Bonita Cleveland told a congressional subcommittee Thursday that the tribe living in LaPush must move its central infrastructure to a higher elevation away from the tsunami zone. “I think our message was embraced, that they were moved by our video presentation,” Cleveland said Thursday after the hearing. “It was a productive day, and I’m really optimistic,” Cleveland said. Quileute Tribal Council members Deanna Hobson and Carol Hatch accompanied Cleveland to present the tribe’s case and ask the Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests and Public Lands to recommend H.R.1162 for approval.

Tsunami, flooding “Although the Japanese tsunami is a very recent reminder of the destruction that happens after an earthquake in the ocean, our people have been living for decades with the fear of tsunami and flooding,” Cleveland told the subcomm­ittee. “Because our village is located on one square mile between the Pacific Ocean and the Olympic National Park, we simply have nowhere to go,” she said. For the past 40 years, tribal leaders have attempted to gain higher ground so they can move tribal members into safer areas. Recently renewed negotiations with the park resulted in an agreement and two bills to implement

The subcommittee now must consider if it will recommend passage of the bill introduced by U.S. Rep. Norm Dicks. Dicks, D-Belfair, represents the North Olympic Peninsula as part of the 6th Congressional District. He introduced the bill in conjunction with an identical U.S. Senate bill introduced by Sen. Maria Cantwell,

D-Mountlake Terrace. The Senate bill was passed by the committee July 28 and awaits a vote by the full Senate.

Transfer land The legislation would transfer 785 acres of national park land to the tribe, including 510 acres along the Quillayute River, and designate a 275-acre parcel owned privately by

the tribe as part of the reservation. Portions of the new reservation lands would be removed from wilderness designation, and tribal living areas would then be moved to the new, safer upland areas. The bill also would designate 4,100 acres, mostly near Lake Crescent, as wilderness, a higher protection for federal lands now designated “low use.”

Sequim candidates discuss issues School, SARC hopefuls mull cuts, youth roles By Arwyn Rice

Peninsula Daily News

SEQUIM — Nine candidates at a forum earlier this week discussed Sequim School District spending and the role of youths and families at the Sequim Aquatic and Recreation Center, known as SARC. Four candidates for the Sequim School Board and five candidates for the SARC Board of Commissioners attended the forum sponsored by the Sequim Family Advocates at the Sequim unit of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula on Monday. The candidates, who will face each other in the Nov. 8 general election, were each asked to answer questions from many of the 80 audience members present.

Sequim schools cuts Walter Johnson, Position 5 incumbent, and his opponent, Stephen Rosales, disagreed on how the district should “position itself” since it is facing more state budget cuts. “Sequim has been very conservative in its financial approach,” said Johnson, a retired Ford Motors engi-

neer who served on school boards in Michigan before moving to Sequim. The district built a­ $2.7 million ending balance fund, from which it has been able to minimize layoffs and keep programs that other districts have had to cut, he said. Said Rosales: “We’re never going to get this money again. “The schools must be gutsy and think outside of the box to find funding, including grants and community fundraising,” he said. Rosales is a parent and longtime volunteer in the schools, the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula and the Sequim Food Bank. John Bridge, Position 3 incumbent, who is unopposed, said: “Last year, they actually took money back from us. “We need to spend our money on things that are sustainable.” Bridge is a retired fourth-grade teacher. Sarah Bedinger, an incumbent in Position 1 who is running unopposed, said positioning a district is not something that is done on a short-term basis.

Locker supporters should speak to the principal first and go up the chain of command, she said.

The board has been intentionally underestimating enrollment and implementing sustainable practices, she said. A Sequim native, Bedinger was first elected to the School Board in 2003 and is the parent of a sophomore at Sequim High School.

Children need to learn healthy habits, including active lifestyles, while they are young, Deol said. “SARC is a gym for adults, not a service for child care, not a social service,” said her opponent, Jan Richardson, a sevenyear resident of Sequim and a Navy veteran. “Children’s programs have not been successful in the past,” said Melinda Griffith, Position 3 incumbent, who has served on the board since 1974. Classes such as karate, tumbling and gymnastics need to have good participation to sustain the program, Griffith said. Bill Black, a write-in candidate opposing Griffith, said, “In the past, SARC has been more family-oriented.” SARC should initiate a family fun night and develop a working relationship with the Boys & Girls Clubs, opening the gym to teenagers for teen rec nights, he said. Black is a retired General Dynamics engineer and a past SARC commissioner who announced his challenge against Griffith two weeks ago. Gill Goodman, Position 4 incumbent running unopposed, said: “I would hate to see SARC as direct competition for the Boys & Girls Club. Goodman is a retired Coast Guard captain.

Candidates for SARC, which is Clallam County Parks and Recreation District 1, also were asked if they would support extended hours or 24-hour keycard access to the facility. “No, I don’t — it is already difficult to get staff for early and late hours,” Griffith said. She said she does not feel the level of use would warrant a keycard access and the liability of unsupervised members would be a problem, she said. “Yes and yes — it should and must be expanded,” Black said. “Weekend hours are entirely too short, and a card system is viable, pool excluded for obvious reasons,” he said. Yes and yes — with security cameras and other precautions, Richardson said. “There is no higher rate than having a pool, which is designed to be closed off,” he said. “I would have to do some research,” Deol said. “Yes and maybe — on weekends, expand the hours, but for the card system, we need to talk to our insurance carrier,” Goodman said.

were waiting on the tracks nearby, a Bangor-bound train carrying missile parts derailed south of Shelton. Officials insisted at the time that the train carried no explosives. But documents Milner obtained a year later through FOIA revealed a lie. The shipment actually included six propellantloaded Trident missile motors with combined explosive weight exceeding 50 tons of TNT.

1995 bombing The 1995 bombing in Oklahoma City was equivalent to detonating 2 tons of TNT. Another FOIA request in 1990 uncovered that the Department of Energy had repeatedly trucked nuclear warheads to Bangor on highways in an attempt to bypass protesters blocking rail tracks. That violated an agreement hashed out by the late Sen. Warren Magnuson requiring shipment by train. But none of Milner’s FOIA battles has been as protracted as the one over Naval Magazine Indian Island.

The five-mile-long island nestles alongside residential Marrowstone Island at the mouth to Puget Sound. The naval base there handles bombs, torpedoes, bullets and other ammunition for all five branches of the military. The Navy’s biggest container crane is stationed at the island’s northwest tip, where the ammunition pier can accommodate superclass-sized aircraft carriers. Milner first wrote the Navy in 2003 seeking details about Indian Island’s explosive-handling zones, or calculations on the force of different explosions at varying distances. The Navy uses the formula mainly to store munitions far enough apart to prevent chain reactions. The Navy refused to provide the details, saying that releasing explosives data would threaten the safety of people working on the base. Potential attackers, the Navy contends, could “reverse engineer” the information to pinpoint munitions stockpiles. Milner sued. The Navy responded by citing two of the nine specific exemptions under FOIA. Exemption 2 allows

withholding internal personnel records, while Exemption 7 covers law enforcement investigative records. The U.S. District Court agreed with the Navy’s interpretation of Exemption 2 and granted a summary judgment. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco upheld the ruling. Seeing a chance to finally settle conflicting lower-court opinions on what constitutes “personnel rules and practices,” the Supreme Court accepted Milner’s appeal. The justices affirmed that Congress drafted FOIA to disseminate, not withhold, information. In its 8-1 ruling, the court complained that the Navy had so twisted the meaning of “personnel” to fit its logic that “the govern-

ment’s definition eludes us.” “We just made landmark law,” said Mann, whose three-person Seattle firm, Gendler & Mann, represented Milner for free. “This court completely eliminated 30 years of expanding Exemption 2 so broadly that it could cover everything.”

New provision The Supreme Court, however, also acknowledged that the Navy has a strong security interest in shielding the explosives data and maps. The justices suggested the Navy could seek other means to hang onto the data, including retroactively classifying it, resting the case solely on Exemption 7 — or getting Congress to change the law. That last option may be the Navy’s best shot.

In a court declaration two weeks ago, Gary Martin, Indian Island’s new commander, for the first time quantified part of the potential danger. A massive explosion would be “extraordinarily dangerous” to base personnel, Martin said, but the blast would not reach Port Townsend. Martin pegged the maximum potential building damage at 5 percent of replacement value, meaning that windows facing Indian Island might shatt­er. A large storm might leave similar damage, he said. Milner, who speaks with unassuming deliberation, said that scenario may or may not be accurate; the public can’t judge for itself. A member of Ground Zero Center for Nonviolent Action, an anti-nuclear group based in Poulsbo, Milner knows well how the government’s instinct for self-interest can shade the truth. “The greater the dangers to the public, the less likely the Navy is to tell the public of those dangers,” he said.

Milner’s FOIA battles

Port Townsend Bay

Back in court The Department of Defense is back in U.S. District Court in Seattle, where it’s pursuing its second legal argument. The Navy contends its information is covered under a FOIA exemption for law enforcement records. Milner and his attorney, David Mann, dismiss the claim as a stretch. The two men fear, however, the Navy may ultimately get its way. That’s because the 2012 defense-authorization bill wending through the Senate contains a provision that would permit the Pentagon to withhold sensitive but unclassified infrastructure data — exactly the kind of information the Navy says it’s being asked to divulge about Indian Island. Milner has appealed to state Sens. Patty Murray, D-Bothell, and Maria Cantwell, D-Mountlake Terrace, to block the legislative change, but chances appear dim. Sen. Patrick Leahy, a Democrat from Vermont, has proposed tightening the loophole, but Milner said that doesn’t go far enough. Should Congress adopt the Pentagon exemption, “it would make it impossible for citizens to learn of this type of danger,” Milner said. “It just seems to me that people ought to know.”

WASHINGTON — It’s been eight years since Glen Milner first asked the Navy just how big an explosion could be triggered by an accident or an attack at its munitions depot on Indian Island. Might flying steel fragments blast downtown Port Townsend, just a couple of miles across the bay? What is the emergency response plan at the military’s biggest ordnancestorage site on the West Coast? And it’s been six months since the U.S. Supreme Court struck down one of the Navy’s grounds for rejecting Milner’s request under the Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA. Milner’s victory was a significant test for public disclosure and reined in the expanding use of an exemption that was originally conceived to protect only personnel information such as salaries and job evaluations. Yet Milner, of Lake Forest Park, may never see those Navy maps.

Unless the new provision in the defense-authorization bill is altered, Milner and Mann said they do not ever expect to receive the maps. Last month, the Port Townsend City Council voted to urge Murray and Cantwell to strip the amendment before the bill comes for a vote in the Senate in the coming weeks. Mayor Michelle Sandoval said the provision had been “drafted to circumvent” the Supreme Court ruling and stemmed from “an unnecessary desire for secrecy on the part of the Department of Defense.” Steven Aftergood, director of The Project on Government Secrecy at the Federation of American Scientists, has followed Milner’s case from a distance. Aftergood said government agencies can often be capricious in holding back information that should be public. The Federation sued the CIA in 1999 after its thendirector, George Tenet, refused to disclose the total national intelligence budget. That same figure had been made public in 1997 and 1998. It took until 2010 for Americans to once again learn how much the government was spending on civilian and military intelligence.

Where to watch the dams come down Overlooks, webcams give views By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — It won’t be anything dramatic like the staged implosion of the Seattle Kingdome in 2000. But you can watch the historic piece-by-piece removal of the Elwha and Glines Canyon dams — and the effects on the Elwha River — over the next three years from a variety of places. Prime viewing spots for the largest dam removal project in U.S. history include: ■  Elwha Dam overlook. Clallam County and Olympic National Park have built a new trail to a an overlook with interpretive signs above the Elwha Dam. The short trail and overlook can be accessed from a gate just south of the Elwha RV Park on Lower Dam Road off state Highway 112. A Saturday ceremony at the site is limited to invited guests only. But the event will be streamed to big-screen TVs at “Elwha Central” at the Port Angeles City Pier at 11 a.m. Saturday. The ceremonies will be rebroadcast on City Pier at 5:30 p.m. The Elwha Dam ceremonies will also be webcast at webcast/1949 at 11 a.m. ■  Glines Canyon. For those who don’t mind a short hike, take Olympic Hot Springs Road to where it is closed for dam removal just past Altair Camp-

A newly built public overlook will provide a glimpse of the Elwha Dam as the dam undergoes removal. ground. The public can hike to viewpoints out of the way of the contractor’s heavy machinery, park spokesman Dave Reynolds said. It’s about a one-mile walk up Whiskey Bend Road to a viewing of the 210-foot dam and Lake Mills behind it. Access to other areas in the Elwha Valley — including Madison Falls, Elwha and Altair campgrounds and the Elwha Ranger Sta-

tion — remains open. For road information in the park, phone 360-5653131 or visit www.tinyurl. com/3hbuum8. ■  Elwha River Bridge. Less than two miles downstream from the Elwha Dam, the public can get a bird’s-eye view of migrating salmon and other wildlife from the pedestrian deck of the Elwha River Bridge. Dedicated in 2009, the

85-foot-tall Clallam County bridge features the Olympic Discovery Trail suspended beneath the vehicle lanes. To access the bridge, follow Elwha River Road. ■  Webcams. The National Park Service has installed six webcams along the Elwha River. While the primary purpose of the webcams is to monitor the process of sediment movement, viewers will have a direct view of

each dam as the removal process progresses. The webcams are placed facing both the Elwha and Glines Canyon dams, the deltas at the southern ends of Lake Aldwell and Lake Mills, and along the northern shore of each reservoir. “This week’s start of dam removal and the ongoing restoration work on the river has generated interest regionally, nationally and even internationally,” Olympic National Park Superin-

tendent Karen Gustin said. “We think this is a unique and effective way to reach out to people interested in the Elwha River and its restoration.” You can watch the dams coming down from your laptop by clicking www.tinyurl. com/damwebcams.

Interagency security assembled for dam events By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Public safety personnel from several North Olympic Peninsula agencies have teamed up to ensure security for this weekend’s Elwha dam-removal celebrations. An interagency incident command team has been assembled for the ceremonial kickoff of the threeyear razing of the Elwha and Glines Canyon dams. The team includes the National Park Service, Clallam County Sheriff’s Office, Port Angeles Police Department, State Patrol, Coast Guard, U.S. Border Patrol and Clallam County Fire District No. 2. Dignitaries such as Gov. Chris Gregoire; Interior

Secretary Ken Salazar; Sens. Patty Murray, D-Bothell, and Maria Cantwell, D-Mountlake Terrace; and Congressman Norm Dicks, D-Belfair, will be on hand. The local command team will provide assistance to the dignitaries’ own security detail. On top of all the hoopla surrounding the dam removal, Port Angeles will host the U.S. Sprint Boat Association National Finals on Saturday. “We’re staffing for a large-scale event for the weekend that’s got various venues and dignitaries,” said Port Angeles Deputy Chief of Police Brian Smith, an incident commander. “This is a true interagency event.” The Clallam County

Emergency Operations Center, or EOC, opened at noon Thursday and will remain open through Saturday, Smith said. Eighteen events are listed on the Elwha damcelebration calendar. “We’ve been working on this for six months,” Smith said.

Under wraps Specifics about the security are understandably being kept under wraps. “We not going to tell you all the details,” Smith said. Trooper Krista Hedstrom, State Patrol spokeswoman, added: “It kind of defeats the purpose of us doing security if everybody knows what we’re going to be doing.” What law enforcement

will say is you can expect to see a presence of uniformed officers patrolling the area “working toward making this a safe and protected event,” Smith said.

Involves everybody Port Angeles Police Sgt. Glen Roggenbuck, operations chief for security planning, told Clallam County commissioners Aug. 29 that the security effort “really involves everybody on the Peninsula.” “This is an extraordinarily high-profile event for our community,” Roggenbuck said. “It’s drawn national and international attention.” Roggenbuck said the Elwha Dam is difficult to secure because it is so remote.

“We’ll have traffic control assigned to the dam entrance,” he told commiss­ ioners. “It’s really not a public event. It’s by invitation only. So we’re controlling access to the dam. “If you don’t have an invitation and you’re not on a shuttle bus, you’re not going to get in,” he said. “We certainly can’t get into everything that we’re doing out there, but it’s a pretty robust plan.”

Fairbanks, 51, was a U.S. Forest Service officer who was shot and killed near Sequim in September 2008. More than 3,000 filled Civic Field to grieve the loss. “We pulled that off in about a week’s time,” Smith said. “We had a lot more time to work on this.” Roggenbuck said the security planning for this weekend will be applied for future events. “We’re not going to just do this and shelve it,” Largest effort Roggenbuck said.

Bacteria on hospital uniforms? By Jeannine Stein The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Think your doctor’s white coat is as clean as a whistle? It might not be. A study finds that dangerous germs could be lurking on nurses’ and doctors’ uniforms. Researchers from Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem cultured three spots on the uniforms of 75 nurses and 60 physicians working in a 550-bed hospital. Potential pathogens (also known as infectious agents, or germs) were found on 63 percent of the uniforms, and antibiotic resistant bacteria were found on samples from 14 percent of nurses’ uniforms and 6 percent of doctor’s uniforms. Eight of those cultures grew methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, better known as MRSA. No substantial differences were found between doctor and nurse uniforms or between staff from medical and surgical departments. However, the contamination rate with antibioticresistant pathogens was higher in clothes that were changed every two days versus every day. The study is published in the September issue of the American Journal of Infection Control.

Washing hands Not washing hands frequently enough could contribute to the pervasiveness of bacteria, the authors wrote, adding that bacteria could be transmitted to patients by other means, not just through clothing. They also noted that although most doctors and nurses in the study thought

of their uniforms as fairly clean, that wasn’t always the case. “It is important to put these study results into perspective,” said Russell Olmsted, president of the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology, in a news release. “Any clothing that is worn by humans will become contaminated with microorganisms. The cornerstone of infection prevention remains the use of hand hygiene to prevent the movement of microbes from these surfaces to patients.” The authors noted that more hand washing could help control uniform bacteria counts, as well as wearing a clean uniform every day, adequate laundering, using plastic aprons when necessary and even discardKeith Thorpe/Peninsula Daily News ing white coats.

From a distance of about 250 yards, large chunks of concrete could be seen splashing into the lake, where they will remain until the reservoir is drained. Thirty feet of the dam, which is 13 miles upstream from the Strait of Juan de Fuca, is expected to be removed by November. Around that point, 7.5-foot-tall notches will be made in the dam to allow more water to be drained before demolition continues. Although the river is not yet free, the effects of dam removal could still be seen on the lake’s shore Thursday.

Real treasure in our parks, forests AT A TIME when Americans fret about terrorism and war and are afflicted by the worst economic downturn in 70 years, let’s embrace a remarkable treasure possessed by every citizen of our country. It doesn’t count in our Nicholas D. net worth, but Kristoff its value is incalculable — our national parks, national forests and other public lands. I spent a chunk of the summer doing some ultralight backpacking along the Pacific Crest Trail out West — my ambition when I grow up is to hike the full length of the trail, from Mexico to Canada — and the trip allowed my family to relish some of America’s finest real estate, without spending a dime. America’s most valuable assets aren’t controlled by hedge funds. They’re shared by us all. Gaps between rich and poor have been growing, but our national lands are a rare space of utter democracy — the poorest citizen gets resplendent views

that even a billionaire is not allowed to buy. Roll out a ground sheet, lay down your sleeping bag and the vistas are yours. Particularly in a grim post9/11 era — an age shaped by anxiety and suspicion — there is something profoundly therapeutic about reconnecting with simplicity and nature. After one 20-mile day in August of trudging mostly upward, sometimes struggling over huge snowfields, we arrived exhausted at Thielsen Creek in central Oregon. The majesty of the scene — snow-clad Mount Thielsen soaring overhead, the creek burbling below us, no one within miles — took our breath away. Yet if these national lands are one of America’s greatest triumphs, two additional points must be noted. First, they are under threat. Republicans have proposed opening more than 50 million acres of federal lands to logging, grazing and other uses. They argue that this would allow responsible “multiple use” of lands now locked up as wilderness. Bruce Babbitt, the interior secretary under President Bill Clinton, has described the Republican bill as “the most radi-

cal, overreaching attempt to dismantle the architecture of our public land laws that has been proposed in my lifetime.” He said it would be “nothing more than a giveaway of our great outdoors.” It’s painful to see the GOP take this stance because it was a great Republican — Theodore Roosevelt — who helped preserve America’s natural treasures. The writer Wallace Stegner called our parks America’s “best idea,” and it’s a legacy that Republicans should embrace, not undermine. The second challenge is more complicated. It is that Americans love their national parks, but they sometimes love video games more. The National Park Service reports that the number of recreational visits to our national parks was lower in 2010 than a decade earlier — lower even than in 1987 and 1988. There were 35 percent more backcountry campers in the national parks in 1979 than in 2010. “Fewer and fewer youth are heading outdoors each year,” the Outdoor Foundation concluded in a “special report on youth.” It added that “the American childhood has rapidly moved indoors, leading to epidemic lev-

els of childhood obesity and inactivity.” It’s tougher to make the argument for wilderness when Americans show less relish for it. Hunting and fishing were once the gateway to outdoor activities, but they’re declining, and backpackers, cross-country skiers and rock climbers haven’t been able to pick up the slack. Conservationists need to expand their focus from preserving nature to encouraging the public to experience it. The only way to protect wilderness in the long run is to build a constituency for it, to grow the number of people who revel in camping under the stars (I’m not a fan of tents!), Americans who accept mosquito bites as a cheap price for some of the world’s freshest air. A few years ago, a writer named Richard Louv coined the term “nature deficit disorder” to describe the way children grow up deprived of wading in muddy creeks. He has followed that up with a new book, The Nature Principle, arguing that adults need nature as well — as a tonic, as a balancing force, as therapy. I’m convinced of that. Our family backpacking trips leave us exhausted, blistered, filthy and sweaty, and drinking

from creeks and ponds that make my wife shudder. Yet we also gain perspective. On one segment of the Pacific Crest Trail near Crater Lake this year, we faced 26 miles without a creek or other water source — a reminder that in the backcountry, nature does not exist for our convenience. On other days, we struggled and slipped as we crossed steep snowfields covered with an icy glaze. The wilderness trims our bravado and puts us in our place. Particularly in traumatic times like these, nature challenges us, revitalizes us, humbles us, exhilarates us and restores our souls. It reminds us that we are part of a larger universe, stewards rather than masters of our world. That’s the lesson you learn as you snuggle exhausted in your sleeping bag and fall asleep outside to the magical sight of owls flitting against shooting stars.

Out-of-towner A former Port Angeles real estate agent who served three terms on the Port Angeles City Council

Driving violations + no cop = frustration By Ruth Messing YES, DRIVING UNDER the influence and speeding can cause accidents. But so can road rage. Law enforcement needs to look at the cause of road rage. Frustration equals anger equals road Messing rage equals accidents. Drivers on the North Olympic Peninsula are deeply frustrated about numerous driving violations for which we never seem to see someone get ticketed.

A little bit geisha, tart and tantalizing NOT SINCE SAKI’S cat Tobermory suddenly began speaking, dismissively skewering a British house party of snobs, has a long silence been so blazingly shattered. The most mysterious, fascinating — and Maureen feline — woman Dowd in American political history has at long last spoken up. And Jackie Kennedy has plenty to say in that inimitably breathy little voice. The former first lady talked to historian and courtier Arthur Schlesinger after JFK’s assassination in taped interviews that were sealed for 47 years. Caroline Kennedy is now releasing them as a book and audio recording, Jacqueline Kennedy: Historic Conversations on Life With John F. Kennedy. In the 1964 tapes, the 34-yearold widow can be unsparing and caustic (except about her sometimes imperfect husband, whom she bathes in an impossibly perfect glow). But she maintains her reputation as JFK’s best image wizard, a novelistic observer of history and the most deliciously original, glamorous and compelling political spouse we’ll ever see. Who else would read War and Peace during the Wisconsin primary and recommend the Memoirs of Duc de Saint-Simon as the best preparation for life in the White House? Who else could persuade the Egyptians to hand over the Temple of Dendur and the French to lend the Mona Lisa, and rediscover the sidelined HMS Resolute desk for the Oval Office? Who else could talk about “that egomaniac” de Gaulle in one breath and the fact that her husband had Gemini characteristics in the next? Who else could argue that JFK should be seen as a Whig and as a Greek, not a Roman, and then astutely dissect why the ambassador to Pakistan didn’t understand the culture there? Who else would describe a head of state (the Colombian president, Alberto Lleras Camargo) as “Nordic in his sadness”?

Making a monster out of ‘green jobs’ WITH THE SCANDALOUS bankruptcy of Solyndra — a shady California solar power company that received $535 million in stimulus funds and is now under investigation by the FBI — hanging overhead, President Barack Obama wisely whitewashed any mention of “green jobs” out of his latest address to Congress. But buried in the details of Michelle his latest govMalkin ernment jobs bill released this week — Spawn of the Spendulus, Porky’s II, Night of the Keynesian Dead — are yet more big green boondoggles that will reward cronies, waste taxpayer dollars and make no dent in the jobless rate. After pouring half a billion bucks into Solyndra, the company filed for Chapter 11 last month and laid off 1,110 employees. Obama administration officials met with Solyndra execs at least 20 times; the green cheerleader-inchief personally visited and promoted the company in 2009 before his administration fast-tracked approval for the loans. Solyndra is now the third solar company to go belly-up this year. Yet the Energy Department is doubling down on failure. As the FBI and House GOP investigators launch a probe into Enron-style accounting problems with Solyndra’s books, the Department of Energy is doling out more than $850 million in new loan guarantees for another California solar firm sponsored by NextEra Energy, along with nearly $200 million more for separate solar manufacturing facilities on the West Coast. Obama claims new “investments” in environmentally friendly school construction projects will put thousands of Ameri-

cans back to work immediately. (Never mind that Big Laborbacked rules and executive orders will raise the cost of the projects, slow their implementation and freeze out the vast majority of non-union contractors.) Among the new green pork initiatives: $25 billion for green roofs, green cleaning, installation of renewable energy generation and heating systems, and “modernization, renovation, or repair activities related to energy efficiency and renewable energy.” But how are existing green construction spending programs working in practice? A brand-new report from Texas Watchdog, a nonprofit, nonpartisan investigative group, sheds inconvenient light on Obama’s $5 billion stimulus-funded Weatherization Assistance Program. In Texas alone, the $327 million program has spent more than $226,000 on each of the 1,041 jobs the program is claimed to have created or saved. Intended to “green” low-income homes, at least three of the original participating organizations have been shut down due to chronic mismanagement, fraud allegations and shoddy workmanship. Baylor University economist Earl Grinols summed up: “First, it is not an appropriate government function to provide weatherization of private homes. “Second, even viewed as a stimulus measure, it is not very effective as a stimulus based on cost-per-job, and third, it appears not to be well-managed.” Nearly 31 months after Porkulus One was signed, the Texas housing agency still hasn’t spent $91.6 million in allocated weatherization/green construction funds. Millions cannot be accounted for by auditors and inspectors. Now, multiply that by 49 other states. A review of the weatherization boondoggle last year revealed state-trained workers were flubbing insulation jobs in Indiana,

according to The Associated Press. In “Alaska, Wyoming and the District of Columbia, the program [had] yet to produce a single job or retrofit one home. And in California, a state with nearly 37 million residents, the program at last count had created 84 jobs.” The Washington Examiner’s Tim Carney, a vigilant chronicler of green subsidies, notes that time and again, it’s Obama insiders and Democratic operatives pocketing all the green while the unemployment hovers at double-digits. To wit: “Al Gore acolyte Cathy Zoi was Obama’s assistant secretary for energy efficiency and renewable energy while her husband was an executive at a company that received direct subsidies from the Obama administration and profited from the Cash-for-Caulkers bill Zoi’s division implemented.” Treasury Department Chief of Staff Mark Patterson lobbied for Goldman Sachs on ethanol subsidies while holding down his job in the administration. And last year, another Obama pet project — Illinois-based FutureGen, a near-zero emissions coal power plant — received a $1 billion stimulus earmark despite having been previously defunded over doubts about the feasibility and efficiency of the project. An Obama green job trainee with seven certificates, Carlos Arandia, spoke for all non-crony Americans when he asked last fall: “What is the point of giving somebody the tools to do something but to have nowhere to use them?” Perhaps the White House can find a way to weatherize all the Grand Canyon-sized taxpayer sinkholes that “green job” spending has created.

Rain to help with fishing LET THE LAST couple of days serve as a warning. The gray days of North Matt Olympic Peninsula fall are on Schubert our doorstep. This is no time for the manic, or the water weary. No, this is a time when we must forge ahead with an unwavering will against all wetness. Why, you ask? Because it’s about to get pretty damp and dark in the near future. And those who can’t handle it will find themselves missing out on some of the greatest treasures these misty mountains have to offer. Sexed-up salmon will soon swarm into streams, driven by the scent of desire. Fields of fungi will rise up from the forest floor, soaking up the soggy scenes of another Peninsula autumn. A razor clam or two may even stick their necks out for a while before burrowing back into their sandy Shangri-La. Oh yes, my dear Peninsulites, this is the time to gear up for the outdoors. Lest you get left behind.

Class A-400 national titles. Macke of Lewiston, Idaho, is his longtime navigator. This is only the third full year that Paul Gahr has been a driver of Live Wire for TNT Racing of Sequim. “Doug is my archrival and my friend,” Gahr said. “He’s been very supportive of me and has helped me out. ‘It’s been lonely at the top,’ he told me.” The Gahr father-and-son team will try to catch Hendrickson and Macke at the seventh and final sprint boat race of the season at Extreme Sports Park, 2917 W. Edgewood Drive.

This is the first race at Extreme Sports Park, which was just completed within the past couple of weeks. “We’re now bringing the fun and excitement of sprint boat racing to the Pacific Northwest,” Gahr said. The national title will be decided in three boat classes at the all-day event Saturday. North Olympic Peninsula fans will get their first chance to see the fast action, the boats go 80 mph, up close and personal. The next closest track is a six-hour drive away. Turn



Sekiu silvers If there is one early fall tradition few mind getting moist over, it’s the late silver salmon fishery in Marine Area 5 (Sekiu). That particular bit of craziness begins in earnest this Monday, when the entire area opens up to coho retention of any kind through the end of the month. Whether or not there will be enough salmon around to satisfy the masses is anyone’s guess. Surely, the recent rains should help on that front. “They’ve been catching more and more silvers the last couple of days,” Gary Ryan of Van Riper’s Resort (360-963-2334) in Sekiu said. “It was pretty slow earlier in the week and last weekend, but overall they are catching quite a few more fish. I hear the guys telling me that they are having to release some pretty nice fish out there, wild fish.” Just as Sekiu begins to heat up once again, the coastal salmon fisheries in Area 3 (LaPush) and 4 (Neah Bay) are about to come to a close. Each area sees its summer salmon season end after Sunday, although Area 3 will reopen Sept. 24 through Oct. 9 for its annual late season bubble fishery in front of LaPush. While that fishery is well known for its lock-jawed lunkers, anglers can always get a few salmon to open their mouths. Randy Lato of All-Ways Fishing (360-374-2052) in Forks said those looking to get in on the last couple days of action this weekend should come home happy. “[There’s] lots and lots of coho . . . if you’re willing to go 25 miles,” Lato said. “We’re not very far from where we halibut fish [at the southwest corner of the Halibut and Bottomfish Closure Zone]. But once you get there, it’s lights out.” One thing that is on the wane is the pink salmon run inside the Strait. While a few are still getting hooked near Sekiu, Port Angeles and Port Townsend, the numbers aren’t near what they were a few weeks ago. Area 6 (eastern Strait) continues to spit out the occasional silver — as do Quimper Peninsula beaches — but the action is far from hot and heavy.

Hunter’s delight? No longer are the conditions conspiring against archery hunters on the Peninsula. Thanks to a little splash of rain and a few darker days and nights, bulls and bucks could be more available to hunters in the final days of the early season. Turn

PA rallies to nip Wolves Drake scores 11 straight points to help Riders Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Setter Emily Drake served 11 straight points in the fourth game as Port Angeles rallied to beat archrival Sequim 3-1 in a nonleague volleyball match Thursday. The Roughriders (2-0) defeated the Wolves (1-1) for only the second time in four years. The win before, though, was crucial as the Riders beat the Wolves at the district tour-

nament last year. Port Angeles won 25-13, 25-18, 19-25, 25-22. In the fourth game, the Riders were behind 13-9 and then 17-10 when Drake took over serving. “Emily Drake did a great job serving tough and aggressively in the match,” Port Angeles coach Christine Halberg said.

Salt Creek invite set Area runners are untested Peninsula Daily News

JOYCE — For the first time in a few years, the North Olympic Peninsula is without an established cross country star. An area that has produced four state champions since 2005 — not to mention numerous top-10 finishers — is now searching for a new runner to carry the Peninsula banner. What better place to find one than at Saturday’s 34th annual Salt Creek Invitational at Salt Creek Recreation Area? With a total of 22 teams expected to compete, including all five Peninsula entries — Port Angeles, Sequim, Port Townsend, Chimacum and Forks — the three-mile run promises to be a stiff test. As is usually the case, it should also provide a sneak peak at who’s who on the

Peninsula prep cross country scene. While the expected lead runner in the girls varsity race is fairly obvious — Kingston’s Marina Roberts returns after winning the race going away last fall — the boys race should be up for grabs. One male runner who’s looking to make a mark early on in the season: Port Angeles’ Nick Schindler. A year after missing state by just two spots, the senior has his eye on filling part of the void left by so many key Olympic League departures, Roughrider boys coach Pat Durr said. “Nick has come back with a vengeance. He’s running pretty strong,” Durr said. “Nick has been studying the other competition, and he’s been running very hard and he wants to make a big splash. “This is his senior year, and this is his year now.” No doubt, there are several others in the area who see an opening. All nine Olympic League

teams will compete on Saturday, so whoever has spent the summer doing their road work will stand out. “It might be a more even race [because of the lack of an obvious front-runner],” Durr said, “which might make it way more exciting for spectators.” Among the others invited to Saturday’s races are 4A schools Auburn, Central Valley, Kentlake and Shelton; 3A schools Bainbridge, Bellevue, Lake Washington, Nathan Hale and Sammamish. The Invitational also added a new wrinkle this year with combined girls/ boys one-mile races for second- through sixth-graders and for seventh and eighth graders. The first race starts at 9:15 a.m. and will be followed by the middle school event at 9:30 a.m. The open race is then at 9:45 a.m., with the JV boys running at 10:30 a.m. and the JV girls at 11 a.m. Turn



Football Previews

Riders host Bremerton By Matt Schubert

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles football team finds itself in the same place it was a year ago: unbeaten at 2-0 going into the Olympic League schedule. Yet there was something about the Roughriders’ up-and-down performance a week ago — a 28-14 win at Forks — that had the coaching staff feeling a whole lot different than it did last season. “That’s how far the program has come,” Port Angeles assistant coach Bob Withrow said following Friday’s nonleaguer. “We play flat, and we’re [angry].” Indeed, any win was good enough for Port Angeles at the start of last fall. After all, the Riders had lost 12 straight going into 2010. And even after winning its first two games against Chief Sealth and Forks, few people sensed the 9-2 Cinderella run to come. It wasn’t until the Riders knocked off Bremerton 27-7 on the rain-soaked Kitsap Peninsula in Week 3 that expectations began to rise for those Riders. Turn

Invite: Preview capsules for teams Continued from B1 The varsity boys race is schedule for 11:30 a.m. and the varsity girls for noon. Here are preview capsules for each varsity team:

Boys Port Angeles (2A) ■ Last year: fifth in league, eighth at districts ■ Top returning runners: Nick Schindler (Sr.), Tony Dalgardno (So.), Evan Herbert (So.) ■ Top newcomers: Kyle Tupper (Jr.), Michael Ahrens (So.) ■ Outlook: Port Angeles is young with just one senior but brings in a pair of new runners in Kyle Tupper and Michael Ahrens that should give the team depth. “We should be OK. We’ll certainly compete,” Port Angeles boys coach Pat Durr said.

Sequim (2A) ■ Last year: sixth in league ■ Top returning runners: Adrian Clifford (Jr.), Joel Christopher (Sr.), Dylan Chatters (So.). ■ Top newcomers: Peter Ohnstad (Fr.), Mickey Cobb (Fr.). ■ Outlook: The Sequim boys are green without any state runners returning. “Just a wait-and-see season,” Sequim coach Harold Huff said.

Port Townsend (1A) ■ Last year: fourth in league, fourth at districts, eighth at state. ■ Top returning runners: Xavier Frank (Jr.), Dylan Bruneau (Jr.), Tristan Story (So.), Griffin Hoins (Sr., Chim.), Quinn L’Hereux (Sr., Chim.) ■ Top newcomers: Ryan Clarke (Fr.), Levi Yearin (So.), Luca Freie (Fr.), Brian LeMaster (Jr.), Harry Goodrich (So.), Dillon Ralls (Jr.), Sean Dwyer (Fr.), Justin Mead (Sr.), Addison Harper (Jr.) ■ Outlook: The Redskins are deep with several new additions, plus a collection of six Chimacum runners training with them. Port Townsend must begin life without Bereket Piatt and Habtamu Rubio — the duo finished 1-2 at state in 2009 — and has been focusing on its core work early on.

Forks (1A) ■ Last year: Ninth at districts ■ Top returning runners: Omar Estrada, Rex Shaw, Ryan Johansen, John James ■ Top newcomers: Abasai Garcia, Aaron Krume. ■ Outlook: Head coach Brian Weekes said the goal is to get the entire team to state this fall. With two runners returning who placed in the top 20 at the SWL-Evgreen Division meet — Omar Estrada and Rex Shaw — the Spartans have a solid founda-

state runner Audrey Lichten. As is the case with the boys, the Sequim girls are very green Girls and are looking for a few runners Port Angeles (2A) to step up. ■ Last year: third in league, “Not deep and I do see some fifth at districts, 14th at state potential,” Sequim coach Harold ■ Top returning runners: Han- Huff said of the boys and girls. nah Wahto (Sr.), Khason Politika (So.), Taylor Jones (So.)

Forks (1A)

“No other sport is like this,” Gahr said. “Everything happens in seconds.” Up to 30 boats are expected Saturday from all over the Northwest, including Canada. Gates open at 9 a.m. with qualifying races starting at 10 a.m. Boats have four chances to qualify for the next level, and then the top eight boats move on to the elimination rounds, which start after lunch at about 1 p.m. The final races will conclude about 5 p.m. The Gahrs are 82 points behind Hendrickson and Macke going into the final race of the year.

“We have at least secured second place for the second year in a row,” Gahr said. Paul Gahr finished in fourth place and was rookie of the year in 2008, third in 2009 and runner-up in 2010. Josh Gahr, who graduated from Sequim High School last spring and will be attending Peninsula College this fall, has been his father’s navigator the past two years. “It’s a wonderful joy to have your kid sitting next to you in an extreme sport,” Paul Gahr said. “People come up and ask for his autograph. That’s wonderful thing.” Wicked Racing’s Dan Morrison of Port Angeles, a co-owner of the track, has already won the

national championship for the Super Boats class with his Wicked Racing No. 10 boat. His navigator is 27-year-old Cara McGuire, a second-grade teacher of Port Angeles. Other area competitors are TNT Racing’s Dillon Brown Cummings and Teri Cummings of Sequim in Super Modified; TNT’s Tim Cummings and Mike Fuller of Sequim also in Super Modified; Twisted Motorsports’ Wayne Brown and Nicole Brown of Port Angeles in A-400 class Paul Gahr Jr. and Tim Cummings are brothers-in-law.

Peninsula Daily News

Football: League tilts Continued from B1 Now, as Port Angeles gets set to host that same Bremerton team tonight in Civic Field at 7, there’s a sense the Class 3A Knights may very well prove as a barometer for this season’s Riders as well. Port Angeles head coach Tom Wahl couldn’t hide his displeasure in his team’s performance last week — a win that began with a long Forks scoring drive and ended with a goal line stand by those same Spartans. His Riders will face a Bremerton Knights team (1-1) that is vastly different from the 2010 edition. Bruising tailback Kyle Kennedy has since graduated, as has several others from a 3A playoff team. Still, the Knights did score a 6-0 victory over Foster in Week 1 and gave 3A Decatur all it could handle in a 33-20 loss last Friday. “I want to see their response. I don’t want to hear it,” Wahl said following Friday’s win at Forks. “The ball is in their court. We’ll do everything we have been doing as coaches. We’ll show them the right way, and we’ll coach them up. “But ultimately, when it comes to the fight, they need to understand that they’ve got to choose because I can’t get out there and fight that battle for them.” The following are previews for games involving North Olympic Peninsula teams this weekend:

Sequim at Klahowya

Rainier Christian at Clallam Bay

■ Time: Tonight at 7. ■ Last meeting: Sequim 53-0 win in Silverdale, Sept. 17, 2010. ■ Records: Klahowya, 1-1 overall; Sequim, 2-0. ■ At stake: The Wolves open their Olympic League schedule with one of their favorite whipping boys. Sequim is 9-0 against the Eagles in the Erik Wiker era, having beaten those teams by an average margin of 23.7 points. That includes two wins by a combined score of 100-0 in the past two years. With the Wolves coming off an impressive upset of Meridian a week ago, they should be favorites again.

■ Time: Tonight at 7. ■ Last meeting: This is the first ■ Records: Clallam Bay, 0-1 in league, 0-2 overall; Rainier Christian, 0-1, 0-2. ■ At stake: The Bruins are trying to get into the win column after back-to-back losses to Crescent. They will face a 2B Rainier Christian squad that is looking for its first win of the season as well. Lummi blew out the Mustangs 62-22 in their first Northwest Football League game. While they can’t compete for a postseason bid in the 1B league, they can provide the Bruins with a win in their own playoff chase.

Hoquiam at Forks ■ Time: Tonight at 7. ■ Last meeting: Hoquiam 19-3 win in Hoquiam, Sept. 17, 2010. ■ Records: Forks, 0-2; Hoquiam, 2-0 ■ At stake: A week after holding their own in a 28-14 loss to 2A Port Angeles, the Spartans get another stiff test in their SWL Evergreen Division opener against Hoquiam. The Grizzlies scored a pair of big wins in the first two weeks of the season, routing Aberdeen and Kalama in successive weeks. In Forks, they face an opponent looking to snap an 11-game losing skid and give first-year head coach Mark Feasel his first win as the Spartans’ leader.

Cascade Christian at Chimacum ■ Time: Tonight at 7. ■ Last meeting: Cascade Christian 46-6 win in Puyallup, Sept. 18, 2010. ■ Records: Chimacum, 0-2; Cascade Christian, 1-1. ■ At stake: The Cowboys get the unfortunate draw of having to face the defending 1A state champions after a rare loss — a 19-13 defeat at the hands of 2A Franklin Pierce. The Cougars have owned the 1A Nisqually League each of the past three seasons, going 22-0 in league during that time. Meanwhile, the winless Cowboys are still trying to find their feet after losing 15 seniors.

Girls Soccer Kingston 3, Port Townsend 1 PORT TOWNSEND — The Redskins (2-2-0) saw a 1-1 halftime tie disappear in a rough nonleague loss to the Buccaneers (1-1-1) on Thursday night. Kingston’s Rebecca Tafte

scored a pair of goals to overcome the one-score effort from the Redskins. “My team just didn’t show up today. We weren’t in it mentally,” Port Townsend coach Ryan Moss said. “The fire and anticipation just wasn’t there tonight.” Kingston 3, Port Townsend 1 Kingston 1 2 — 3 Port Townsend 1 0 — 1 Scoring Summary First half: 1, Kingston, Tafte, (Keller), 26th minute; 1, Port Townsend, Gambill (Lyons), 35th minute. Second Half: 2, Kingston, Keller, 48th minute; 3, Kingston, Tafte (Holt), 53rd minute.

Port Angeles 5, Sequim 0 PORT ANGELES — The Roughriders went ahead 3-0 at halftime and breezed to the nonleague win against their archrivals. The win was the third shutout of the year for the Riders (3-1-1). “Sequim has an improv-

ing team, we just have a pretty potent offense this year,” Port Angeles coach Scott Moseley said. Kathryn Moseley scored two goals while Danielle Schimschal scored a goal and had two assists. Kaitlin Boston had a goal and an assist while Kylee Jeffers also scored a goal. Shayla Northern and Paxton Rodocker and Tori Holcomb all had one assist. Kathryn Moseley was named the offensive player of the game while McKayla Cox was picked for defense and Schimschal named for transition.

Elma 10, Forks 0 ELMA — The youthful Spartans (0-2, 0-3) struggled in the Southwest Washington-Evergreen Division match Thursday night.


Girls Swimming Port Angeles 141, Bremerton 39 PORT ANGELES — The Riders dominated their first Olympic League meet of the season Thursday at William Shore Pool, tallying three state times and 15 district times on the way to a win. Tracie Macias swam two individual state times to lead the Riders, winning in the 200-yard individual medley in 2 minutes, 22.23 second, and claiming the 100 butterfly in 1:03.76. The 200 medley relay of Tracie Macias, Ashlee Reid,

Kelsey Macias and Tarah Erickson also put up a state time of 1:58.66 on the way to a win. Port Angeles took first in all 12 events and swept six.

Boys Tennis Port Angeles 6, PT/Chimacum 1 PORT TOWNSEND — The Roughriders took advantage of a shorthanded Quimper Peninsula squad by winning all but one match in Wednesday’s Olympic League contest. Winning in straight sets for the Riders were Hayden McCartney, Jordan Negus, Alex Brown, Michael and Marcus Konopaski and Chase Walsh-Kevin Herzog. Kapono Rogers and Derek Schumacher also won by forfeit. The players of the match were Marcus and Michael Konopaski.

Fish Counts

Continued from B1 That being said, Mike Deese of Swain’s General Store (360-452-2357) in Port Angeles said most hunters must venture into the deep backcountry to score their animals. “Getting off the road and getting into the backcountry is the place to go,” Deese said. “That’s where I’ve had my best results anyway. “They are starting to know the hunters are out there, and I know that they’ve been going into pretty thick cover and shady areas.” Archers have until Sunday or Sept. 23, depending upon the Game Management Unit (GMU), to target deer on the Peninsula. The early archery elk season ends after Sunday throughout the area. Deese said the elk have been pretty talkative this fall. It’s just getting them at the tip of his arrow that’s the hard part. “The elk were bugling, the first three days [of the season] anyway; usually early in the morning,” Deese said. “I had a bull I was after for the first three days. He was bugling every morning, but I couldn’t get a shot at him.” Black bear and grouse seasons have been pretty quiet thus far. While grouse hunters seem doomed to a subpar year due to a poor spring hatch, conditions appear to be improving for those looking to take down Yogi. “The berries are ripe out there, but I haven’t seen any bear. I’m surprised,” Deese said.

“We had a tremendous effort from a couple of kids,” Forks coach Andrew Peterson said. Sierra Noles and Kaylea Kraft both had strong games along with goalkeeper Anastasia Fleck, who had 30 saves.

The top three fish of the No Fin, You Win salmon derby in Sekiu gather for a photo last Saturday. Steve Coursan of Spanaway, at left, won the $1,215 top prize with a 10.96-pound coho. Taking second was Seth Carlyle of Hoquiam, middle, with a 10.46-pounder. Spokane’s Gene Raczykouski, at right, finished third with a 9.11-pound fish. River roundup The hysteria that is the Big Quilcene River coho run is all but finished. Now it’s time to wait for the first big rain of the fall, which will surely bring loads of salmon with it to West End rivers. There’s already a decent amount of summer steelhead and coho in the Quillayute and its tributaries. Anglers just need a little water to make the rivers fishable. “Just because the fish are there doesn’t mean you’re going to catch them,” Bob Gooding of Olympic Sporting Goods (360-3746330) in Forks said. “You still have to have some color and some water to hide you a little bit.” Those in absolute need of a river fishing fix can always head to the Hoh. It’s likely dropped into decent shape with the weather cooling the past few days. One can always go after

sea-run cutthroat as well. Unlike their salmon counterpart, the cuts are in a feeding mood. The upcoming October Caddis hatch should make them even more peckish.

Loss of interest sign of depression


DEAR ABBY: I am 18 years old and would like to know what kinds of symptoms show that it’s time for counseling — depression, mood swings, etc. Considering It in Ohio

For Better or For Worse

Dear Considering It: You have asked an important question. Everybody experiences sadness at some point, but sadness that doesn’t go away can actually be depression, a medical condition. Anyone, regardless of age, who experiences any five of the following symptoms for two weeks or more should discuss it with a mental health professional: 1. Feeling of sadness and/or irritability. 2. Loss of interest or pleasure in activities once enjoyed. 3. Changes in weight and appetite. 4. Changes in sleep patterns. 5. Feeling guilty, hopeless or worthless. 6. Inability to concentrate, remember things or make decisions. 7. Restlessness or decreased activity noticed by others. 8. Fatigue or loss of energy. 9. Thoughts of death or suicide.

Dear Abby: I have a wonderful hairdresser who helps not only me, but also many of my friends and family members. She’s the sole support for her family and the sweetest person you could ever meet. The issue is her sense of time. There’s no problem if you’re the first or second appointment of the day, but after that, she runs further and further behind. Yesterday, it took my frail motherin-law 31⁄2 hours to get her hair done because of the wait time. I was the first appointment at 7:30 a.m., and she didn’t make it into the shop until 7:40. How can I help her understand she’s driving her customers away without offending her? Cutting Time in Utah


Dear Cutting Time: Your hairdresser may be good at styling hair, but it appears she’s not a very good businesswoman. If she’s losing customers because


DEAR ABBY she manages her schedule so poorly, Van Buren tell her why. You will be doing her a favor. And please, before you bring your frail motherin-law in for another appointment, call to find out how late the woman is running before letting your mother-in-law sit for 31⁄2 hours before even seeing a shampoo bowl.


Dear Abby: I recently bought a small travel trailer that I use for weekend fishing trips. My dog, “Goldie,” accompanies me on these short trips and sleeps with me on the only bed in the trailer. My wife, “Shirley,” is now expecting to go on some of my fishing trips with Goldie and me. The problem is, Goldie is used to sleeping with me, and I believe she should have first dibs on the bed since she was there first. When I informed Shirley that she’d be sleeping in the back of the truck, she came unglued. Now, Shirley and I are hardly speaking. Goldie is a young Lab pup who is my very best friend, constant companion and never nags. I think my wife is being selfish and inconsiderate, but I’d like your opinion. Am I out of line here? Goin’ Fishin’ in Midland, Texas Dear Goin’ Fishin’: If you’re expecting sympathy from me, you’re barking up the wrong tree. You are not only out of line, but it appears you’re also in the doghouse. A real Texas gentleman would let Shirley and Goldie share the bed while he slept in the truck, and that’s what I’m urging you to do.

Offering up colors of water, joy Artists create banners for Elwha fete By Diane Urbani

Peninsula Daily News


PORT ANGELES — It’s as if they’ve been deep in the river, so saturated are these with colors of water and joy. A suspended array of banners, made by artists from Port Angeles, Sequim, Portland, Ore., and across Western Washington, will greet the 400 guests attending Saturday’s ceremony at the Elwha Dam. Waving over the walkway to the stage, the bann­ers will be part of the historic day marking the removal of the river’s two dams and the return of its fabled salmon. Anna Wiancko Chasman of Freshwater Bay and Karen Hanan of Arts Northwest, organizer of this week’s Celebrate Elwha! series of events, put out the call for banner artists. Those who responded received neither money nor an invitation to Saturday’s ceremony, Chasman said. Instead, the painters and photographers gave pure gifts: radi-

The conference runs through Sunday.

It is sponsored by the PT Co-op, with proceeds benefiting the Northwest Earth Institute. “Now is the time that people need to pay more attention to where their food is coming from,” said Co-op Outreach Manager Brywn Griffin. “People don’t realize what a small percentage of our food is actually grown and how efficiency can be increased by integrating food production in their own greenhouses.”

Also for Saturday’s cere­ mony, Port Angeles photog­ rapher Pam Russell created a collage depicting Lower Elwha Klallam elder Alan Charles, while art teacher Cathy Haight and Lower Elwha tribal members Jamie Valadez and Luana Arakawa worked with local children to make two quiltlike banners.

Backdrop for stage The backdrop for the stage at the Elwha Dam was created by Jake Seniuk, a fine arts photographer

and the director of the 25-year-old Port Angeles Fine Arts Center. His mural, 10 feet high and 25 feet long, shows the outline of a giant salmon as a window into Olympic National Park. To create this, Seniuk used numerous photo­ graphs of salmon, melded together, along with a Native art-inspired paint­ ing. After Saturday’s cere­ mony, the mural and the art banners will be moved to a public display space, though Hanan has yet to determine exactly where.

Jan Harbick of the Port Angeles Downtown Associ­ ation said this week that she hopes to install them in the empty storefront at First and Lincoln streets, at least for a time. Hanan said Port Ange­ les’ Olympic National Park Visitor Center is another possibility; she sees the banners becoming a travel­ ing exhibition. Wherever they go, the banners will be shown off for years to come, Hanan said, adding that they will be part of an Elwha River Restoration archive that

blends the artistic and the scientific. Chasman, for her part, looks forward to those great messengers: the salmon. She traveled some time ago to Alaska, where of all the wildlife, a particular fish left the deepest impres­ sion. “What got me the most,” she said, “were the sockeye. They signify the health of our world.”

Also on the “eTown” show agenda are an interview with National Park Service Director Jon Jarvis and the presentation of the E-chievement Award. The recipient is a Washington state activist whose name won’t be announced until Saturday, said “eTown” co-host Nick Forster. Saturday night’s festivities will be turned into two “eTown” episodes, to air on some 300 public and comm­ ercial radio stations in late November or early December.

North Olympic Peninsula residents will be able to hear the shows on KMTTFM 103.7 out of Tacoma, as well as online via www. And KONP of Port Angeles, at 1450 AM and 102.1 FM, may also air them; manager Todd Ortloff said this week he’s trying to work out a broadcast agreement with “eTown.”

Arts Northwest The orchestrator of all this is Karen Hanan of Arts Northwest, the Port Angeles-based promoter of musical and educational events and the founder of the Juan de Fuca Festival of the Arts. The City Pier festival,

the “eTown” event and other Celebrate Elwha activities of the past week were not included in the National Park Service’s multimilliondollar Elwha River Restoration budget, Hanan said. Instead, she raised $20,000 in private funding, principally from the Kongsgaard-Goldman Foundation. The Seattle foundation makes grants to nonprofits involved in restoration and other environmental projects across the Pacific Northwest. Hanan was determined to add music and other art forms to the Elwha damremoval story. She also coordinated the creation of 23 banners by

artists across the region, plus a mural by Port Angeles Fine Arts Center Director Jake Seniuk, for Saturday’s ceremony at the dam site. Without the arts, that event could get a little dry, Hanan believes. She also wanted the public to be part of the whole restoration project, the largest of its kind in the nation. So “we raised our own money for our party,” Hanan said. “The arts are what people will remember.”

Presentation on Orthodox Christianity

Diverse viewpoints But accepting diverse viewpoints can be difficult and confusing. We want to have things explained, and there is a comfort in having one simple answer to our questions, especially when it comes to something as crucial as the nature of God. However, when we accept a simple “one-sizefits-all” view of God, it can cause us to believe that only we have the right way to experience the divine. That perception, at the very least, can be detrimental to our interactions with others and at its worst can lead to disrespect, hatred and violence. As Jews enter into a reflective time before our High Holy Days, we look back on the past year and review our lives, resolving to make changes in the year to come, to work harder to spread justice and love. The Jewish view of sin is reflected in the Hebrew word chet, which simply means “to miss the mark,” to make a mistake.

So Jewish DeBey tradition teaches us that when we “sin,” we aren’t punished by a vengeful God, but rather we suffer in our own souls for how we have acted, and our job is to try again and again to act in a way that would bring goodness to the world. God isn’t trying to “catch” us in our mistakes but rather watches with joy when we reach out and bring the divine into our world by our actions. The idea that God punishes us with natural disasters, sickness or death because we don’t conform to a particular belief is contrary to Jewish thought. Rather than focusing on why tragedy happens, Judaism teaches us that we have been given the ability to use our minds to reach out to those in need, to discover medicines and cures for sickness, and to comfort the bereaved.


Use gifts This is what God wants from us: to use the gifts we have been given to create a world that is a reflection of the divine spark that is in us all. The title of Rabbi David Cooper’s book on Kabbalah, God is a Verb, causes one to stop and reflect on the mystical concept of God and to help us see that we really can’t describe or know God in the conventional sense, but rather we will find the divine within us when we pursue acts of loving-kindness, which will repair our broken world. God is action. Just as our ancestors saw God differently, through the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob, we, too, can accept that the divine can be seen in many ways. What is important is not to insist there is only one path, but rather to see what we all have in common and join hands to bring about peace, lovingkindness and beauty to our world. Kein yehi ratzon . . . may it be God’s will. Shalom.

had been killed and tortured by Christians, said Capt. Marinus Djati, the Ambon traffic police chief. Groups of Muslims confronted Christians after the man’s funeral. The two sides traded insults and later started throwing rocks and swinging machetes, police said.

Fires, shots The rioters also set fire to houses, cars and motorcycles despite police attempts to disperse them with warning shots, Djati said. Five people were killed and 154 others were injured, 31 of them seriously, said Bakrie Asyatri, the Ambon government spokesman. He said a tense calm had returned to the city by Monday afternoon. Indonesia is overwhelmingly Muslim, but Christians form the majority in parts of Maluku — known as the Spice Islands in colonial times -— and other eastern regions.

Netflix’s higher prices equals fewer subscribers By Michael Liedtke The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — Netflix’s decision to raise prices by as much as 60 percent is turning into a horror show. The customer backlash against the higher rates, kicking in this month, has been much harsher than Netflix Inc. anticipated. That prompted management to predict Thursday that the company — the largest U.S. video subscription service — will end September with 600,000 fewer U.S. customers than it had in June. It will mark just the second time in 12 years that Netflix has lost subscribers from one quarter to the

next. The last downturn occurred during 2007 when Netflix lost a mere 55,000 from March through June. The current hemorrhaging exacerbated fears that Netflix is losing the magic touch that increased its stock 10-fold in the three years leading up to the company’s July 12 announcement about its higher prices. Since then, Netflix has turned into Wall Street’s equivalent of a box-office flop. Its shares plunged $39.46, or about 19 percent, to close at $169.25 on Thursday, leaving Netflix’s stock price more than 40 percent below where it stood before the company unveiled the higher prices. The cost to shareholders

so far: more than $6 billion in paper losses. It could get uglier if the worst-case scenarios play out. Netflix suffered another setback earlier this month when Starz Entertainment ended talks to renew the licensing rights to a key part of Netflix’s video library for streaming over the Internet.

Fallout from decision The fallout from that decision will hit in March when Netflix will no longer be able to stream the popular mix of recently released movies and TV shows that it got from Starz, raising the specter of another onslaught of customer defections.

“Netflix isn’t looking like it’s as good a deal because their prices are getting higher and their content isn’t getting any better,” said Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter, who thinks the company’s shares could fall as low as $110. “It’s like they have taken the beef away from the buffet.” The customer exodus still hasn’t convinced Netflix to reverse its course and lower its prices as it did in 2007 when it was engaged in a cut-throat battle with Blockbuster Inc. In announcing its lowered subscriber forecasts Thursday, Netflix emphasized it considered its new prices to be “the right longterm strategic choice.”

LOS ANGELES — The Food and Drug Administration has cautioned the corn industry over its ongoing use of the term “corn sugar” to describe high fructose corn syrup, asking them to stop using the proposed new name before it has received regulatory approval, The Associated Press has learned. The Corn Refiners Association wants to use “corn sugar” as an alternative name for the widely used liquid sweetener currently labeled as high fructose corn syrup on most sodas and packaged foods. They’re attempting an image makeover after some scientists linked the product to obesity, diabetes and other health problems; some food companies now tout products that don’t contain the ingredient.

SEQUIM — Vision Landscape Nursery, 131 Kitchen-Dick Road, has a new display garden featuring unusual and exotic plants. These plants are carnivorous, consuming insects for their nutritional needs. Bill Stearn led the project. The display gardens are open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. For more information, visit www.visionland

Another year Although it could take another year before the FDA rules on the request made last September to change the name, the Corn Refiners Association has for months been using “corn sugar” on television commercials and at least two websites: and A series of high-profile

The Associated Press

Displayed is a nutrition label on a can of soda with the ingredient high fructose corn syrup Thursday in Philadelphia. television, online and print advertisements tell consumers that “sugar is sugar” and that corn sugar is natural and safe, provided it’s consumed in moderation. In a July 12 letter obtained by the AP, Barbara Schneeman, an FDA director, wrote to the Corn Refiners Association to say she was concerned with the trade group using the terms high fructose corn syrup and “corn sugar” interchangeably. As of Thursday, two

months after the letter was sent, none of that wording had been changed. Audrae Erickson, spokeswoman for the Corn Refiners Association, said in an email to the AP that the group is currently reviewing its materials and will make changes if necessary. “We do not believe that anyone could be confused or believe that the statements regarding ‘corn sugar’ on the websites refer to anything other than high fruc-

tose corn syrup,” Erickson wrote. The FDA has no regulatory control over the corn association’s advertising because it is not selling a product but promoting an industry. The federal agency can prosecute companies that incorrectly label ingredients and Schneeman wrote that the FDA may launch enforcement action against food companies listing high fructose corn syrup as “corn sugar.”

Medicare Advantage premiums decline as enrollment increases By Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar

Average plan premium Officials said the average plan premium will be $32 a month in 2012, compared with the 2011 average of $33.48. Sebelius went on to take a jab at GOP critics.

TACOMA — A federal judge has found a union in contempt of court after hundreds of its members raided a grain terminal in Southwestern Washington, smashed windows and menaced security guards last week. U.S. District Judge Ronald Leighton said he wants the operator of the Longview grain terminal to provide him an accounting of the damage for purposes of gauging how much he should fine

Minimum wage SALEM, Ore. — Oregon’s minimum-wage workers will get an extra 30 cents an hour next year. Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian announced Thursday that the minimum wage will rise to $8.80 per hour Jan. 1. Oregon voters approved a ballot measure in 2002 that requires a minimum wage adjustment each year based on changes in inflation measured by the Consumer Price Index. Avakian said the index rose 3.77 percent over the past year. Oregon and Washington are among 10 states that adjust the minimum wage based on the index. Washington is expected to announce its next adjustment later this month.

Obama’s health care law staggered Medicare Advantage cuts to make them more manageable. His administration has worked to soften the impact in the initial years, for example, by pumping in $6.7 billion in quality bonuses, most of which will be awarded to plans rated merely average. Republicans said that’s a patch. “The new enrollment numbers are encouraging, but driven by a temporary increase in bonus payments,” said Julia Lawless, spokeswoman for Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch, senior Republican on the Finance Committee, which oversees Medicare. Sebelius asserted that Obama’s health law is making Medicare stronger, providing new preventive benefits and cutting costs for older people with high prescription drug bills.

ing just the opposite,” she said. Medicare Advantage provides a choice of private insurance plans that usually offer lower out-ofpocket costs than traditional Medicare. Its popularity has increased steadily and now about one-quarter of Medicare’s 48 million beneficiaries are signed up. Previously the plans had been overpaid when compared with the cost of care in traditional Medicare. When the health care law scaled that back, cutting more than $130 billion over 10 years, it prompted warnings of an exodus from the program. That hasn’t happened yet, though the insurance industry and independent experts predict that it will eventually.

WASHINGTON — Turning a usually routine announcement into a pointed rebuttal of its GOP critics, the Obama administration said Thursday that premiums for popular Medicare Advantage insurance plans will drop for 2012, while enrollment is expected to rise. That’s welcome news for President Barack Obama and Democrats, who are struggling with older voters ahead of a hard-fought election looming next year. Republicans have accused Obama of undermining Medicare to finance his health care overhaul. Indeed, during this week’s GOP presidential debate, Minnesota Rep. Michele

Bachmann claimed the president “stole” from Medicare to pay for his plan. But Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said Thursday that Medicare Advantage premiums will average 4 percent less in 2012, and insurers running the plans project enrollment will jump by 10 percent.

Marine defied orders, saved other troops Obama presents Medal of Honor to Ky. man By Julie Pace

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Defying orders and tempting fate, Marine Cpl. Dakota Meyer charged five times in a Humvee into heavy gunfire in the darkness of an Afghanistan valley to rescue comrades under attack from Taliban insurgents. On Thursday, Meyer was presented with the Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award, by President Barack Obama. Meyer’s courage during the six-hour ambush and firefight saved the lives of 36 people, both Americans and Afghans. He killed at least eight Taliban insurgents. Firing from a gun turret on top of the Humvee driven by a fellow Marine, he provided cover for his team, allowing many to escape likely death. He was defying orders from his commanders, who told him to stay back. The kill zone, they said, was too dangerous. But the young corporal, just 21 years old at the time, knew his friends were trapped that early morning in September 2009. Meyer, later promoted to sergeant and now out of the Marines, is the third living recipient — and the first Marine — to be awarded the Medal of Honor for actions in Iraq or Afghanistan.

‘Best of generation’ “In Sgt. Dakota Meyer, we see the best of a generation that has served with distinction through a decade of war,” Obama said during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House. The modest, soft-spoken 23-year-old now lives in his home state of Kentucky, working construction in the tiny town of Greensburg. Obama praised Meyer for his humility and work ethic. When the White House tried to reach him in the middle of a workday to tell him his medal had been approved, he worried about whether he could take a

call while on the job. So the White House arranged for the president to call during Meyer’s lunch break. With a smile, Obama thanked him for taking the call. On the eve of the Medal of Honor ceremony, Obama and Meyer met in person, chatting on a patio near the White House Rose Garden, over a beer.

Five died Despite Meyer’s heroism, four Americans died in the ambush. They were 1st Lt. Michael Johnson, a 25-year-old from Virginia Beach; Staff Sgt. Aaron Kenefick, 30, of Roswell, Ga.; Corpsman James Layton, 22, of Riverbank, Calif.; and Edwin Wayne Johnson Jr., a 31-year-old gunnery sergeant from Columbus, Ga. A fifth man, Army Sgt. Kenneth W. Westbrook, 41, of Shiprock, N.M., later died from his wounds. Meyer said he has struggled with the national attention, with being recognized for the worst day of his life. He requested that memorial services for those who died that day be held in their hometowns at the same time he received the Medal of Honor. The president assured Meyer that he had let no one down. “Dakota, I know you’ve grappled with the grief of that day, that you said your efforts were somehow a failure because your teammates didn’t come home,” the president said. “But as your commander in chief and on behalf of everyone here today and all Americans, I want you to know it’s quite the opposite.” For all the praise heaped upon Meyer, questions have also been raised about whether the military could have prevented the deaths of the five Americans. Two Army officers were reprimanded for being “inadequate and ineffective” and for “contributing directly to the loss of life” following an investigation

Born in Port Angeles’ Davidson-Hay Hospital on August 24, 1949, to Marvin G. “Red” Johnson and Helen Hunton Johnson, he lived his entire life in Port Angeles until cancer claimed him, peacefully and at home on August 17, 2011. We are incredibly thankful to the local staff of Assured Hospice of Clallam and Jefferson Counties for their compassion and unfailing support. His working life was mostly as a log truck driver, a job he took very seriously and did well. In his free time, he pursued hunting and fishing all over the Peninsula with a group of like-minded friends. A high point of his life was a fishing trip to

River’s Inlet in British Columbia. Gary married twice: In the first, he was a fine stepfather to 4-year-old Lisa; the second produced two children of his own, Jina and Craig. Both marriages ended in divorce. He was predeceased by his parents, daughter Jina; brother Larry and exwife Terri, mother of his children.

He is survived by son Craig; grandson Alex; uncle Ray Johnson of Oregon City, Ore.; aunt Marian Johnson of Tukwila, Washington; lifelong friend and first wife Sharon Adamson; sister Sandra; lifelong friend and fishing partner Ron Van Winkle; excellent friend and fishing partner Rob Bielby; and many other friends who loved him and now must deal with a Swede-shaped hole in the heart, including longtime special friend Penne Schell of Forks. A no-kidding celebration of his life will be held at the Camp Fire Clubhouse, 619 East Fourth Street, Port Angeles, from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, September 24, 2011. Light refreshments and beverages will be furnished (feel free to bring your favorite dish). Fish stories and trucking stories especially encouraged!

took fire and called for air support that wasn’t coming, Meyer begged his command to let him head into the incoming fire to help. Four times he was denied before he and another Marine, Staff Sgt. Juan Rodriguez-Chavez, jumped into the Humvee and headed into the fray. For his valor, RodriguezChavez, a 34-year-old who hailed originally from Acuna, Mexico, would be awarded the Navy Cross. With Meyer manning the Humvee’s gun turret, the two drew heavy fire.

But they began evacuating wounded Marines and American and Afghan soldiers to a safe point. Meyer made five trips into the kill zone. During that fifth trip into the kill zone, a helicopter arrived at last to provide overhead support. Troops aboard the chopper told Meyer they had spotted what appeared to be four bodies. Meyer knew those were his friends. “It might sound crazy, but it was just, you don’t really think about it, you

don’t comprehend it, you don’t really comprehend what you did until looking back on it,” Meyer said. Wounded and tired, Meyer left the relative safety of the Humvee and ran out on foot. Ducking around buildings to avoid gunfire, he reached the bodies of his fallen comrades. Meyer and two other troops dodged bullets and rocket-propelled grenades to pull the bodies out of a ditch where the men had died while trying to take cover.

Challenge for actor Thomas, who played the emcee in OTA’s “Cabaret,” is relishing the challenge of this latest project. The role of Milo, the man apparently aiming to marry Andrew’s wife, is complex: a character who’s neither all good nor all bad.

PORT ANGELES — If you join the party at Port Angeles High School this Saturday night, you’ll have Cake, and then some. In a historic climax to this week’s “Celebrate Elwha” events, the alternative-rock band Cake will headline a taping of the nationally syndicated radio show “eTown” at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. Singer-songwriters Eliza Gilkyson of Austin, Texas, and Danny Barnes of Port Hadlock make it a triple bill with hosts Nick and Helen Forster. Tickets to the event in the Port Angeles High auditorium, 304 E. Park Ave., are $20 at and at Port Book & News, 104 E. First St. Yet “eTown,” which has more than a million listeners on some 300 public and commercial radio stations, doesn’t live by music alone.

Celebration with sound It’s certainly a sonic celebration around the long-awaited removal of the Elwha River dams, which began this week. But the “eTown” taping is also a community party and an energy exchange, promised Nick Forster. He named the show some 20 years ago with intentional ambiguity: the “e” can stand for environment, education, entertainment, energy, Earth — but not electronic, he says. The “eTown” ethic is more about old-fashioned communication, through discussion and song. Saturday’s “eTown” taping will run for about two hours, to be broadcast in late November or early December as

Then there will be “Slouching Towards Bethlehem,” her song based on the W.B. Yeats poem. It’s a “rally the troops” number, she said.

Lady of the river In addition to her “eTown” performance, Gilkyson will sing at the invitation-only ceremony at the Elwha Dam on Saturday morning. “I come from a long line of fishermen . . . and rivers are absolutely my favorite ecosystem. I have lived along many,” she said. Barnes is a Texan like Gilkyson, though he’s lived in rural Jefferson

County for about 14 years. He’s an offbeat songwriter and banjo player whose latest record, “Pizza Box,” features Dave Matthews. As for the Elwha River Restoration that inspired his “eTown” gig, “I think it’s great; I’m excited,” Barnes said. “It’s great to see the fishery being supported.” “The dam ceremony up there is a nice win,” added Gilkyson. Yet she worries, at times, that environmental and community activists will burn out in the wake of so many losses. “We need to have solidarity with each other in these times,” she said. When people stick together, “we’re able to maneuver through a difficult time, and stay sentient. If we shut

down, we can’t care. We can’t love. And then we’ve really lost.” But this is a time to celebrate, Gilkyson said, and “our group” — environmental activists — “knows how to have a good celebration. “It means a lot to be part of a community that tries to work things out together,” she added. “That is where our hope lies.”

Danny Barnes will perform at Port Angeles High School on Saturday night during a special “eTown” radio concert.
