Mount Rainier ranger shot, killed National park closed on holiday; gunman at large PENINSULA DAILY NEWS NEWS SOURCES

MOUNT RAINIER NATIONAL PARK — A national park ranger was fatally shot and a gunman was on the loose as darkness fell Sunday at Mount Rainier National Park. Ranger Margaret Anderson, 34, was pronounced dead after a 90-minute standoff between law enforcement officers and the assailant, who shot at arriving officers as they arrived to assist the stricken ranger, said Lee Taylor, park spokeswoman. Late Sunday, authorities revealed that they have a “strong person of interest.” Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said 24-year-old Benjamin Colton Barnes is believed to have military experience and possess skills to survive

in the wild. Troyer said the man’s vehicle — which had weapons and body armor — was recovered. Troyer says armored vehicles were Anderson being brought in to evacuate about 100 people from the national park who are hunkered down in cabins and who police worry may be in the line of fire. Anderson, 34, is a mother of two children and has served as a park ranger for about four years, said Mount Rainier National Park Superintendent Randy King.

New pier will carry its weight

A really cool cold dip!

Work under way on Boat Haven structure that will carry 80 tons BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT TOWNSEND — Construction has begun to replace the Boat Haven’s deteriorating pier with one that can handle more weight when boats are lifted out of the water. A 160-foot crane barge on Thursday brought in the material to install the 26 steel pilings that will support the new pier. The current pier can handle weights up to 75 tons, which includes a 46,000-pound boat lift, which is driven onto the pier to pick up boats for renovation or repair. The new pier will be able to withstand 80 tons. “In my 12 years here, this is the project that has given us the greatest return on investment because it will provide us with a fully functioning pier for many years to come,” said Port of Port Townsend Director Larry Crockett.

The lift used on the Boat Haven pier is considered small, compared with the large lift at the Port Townsend Boat Yard, which can lift 330 tons, according to Jim Pivarnik, Port of Port Townsend deputy director. “We get a lot of attention for the large boat lifts but the smaller ones provide the port’s bread and butter,” Crockett said. He said that the construction will ensure that 400 marine-trade jobs will continue to exist. Crockett said the project will be finished by the beginning of March but that the pile driving will need to be completed by Feb. 14 because of a “fish window.” TURN

Too many

By The Associated Press

DON MUELLER, 84, a two-time Major League allstar whose hit helped set up Bobby Thomson’s famed home run that won the 1951 National League pennant playoff, has died. He died Wednesday in suburban St. Louis. Mr. Mueller was a career .296 hitter in 10 years Mr. Mueller in 2004 with the New York Giants and two seasons with the Chicago White Sox. The outfielder led the majors with 212 hits in 1954. In the deciding Game 3 of the playoffs against the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1951, Mr. Mueller had a single in the bottom of the ninth inning with the Giants trailing 4-1. Whitey Lockman later hit an RBI double and Mr. Mueller ripped up his ankle sliding into third base. After Mr. Mueller was carried off the field, Thomson hit his three-run homer known as “The Shot Heard ‘Round the World.” Mr. Mueller’s ability to hit the ball through holes in the infield earned him the nickname “Mandrake the Magician” from the popular comic strip of the day. Mr. Mueller’s father, Walter, played for Pittsburgh.


YAFFA YARKONI, 86, a singer who belted out wartime songs only to become a critic of the Israeli military late in life, died Sunday after a battle with Alzheimer’s disease. Ms. Yarkoni went from entertaining soldiers as a wartime songbird to criticizing the Israeli military’s treatment of Palestinians during their uprising last decade. After chiding the military in 2002, Ms. Yarkoni was branded a traitor by soldiers’ families, received death threats and had a gala tribute to her career canceled. A group of artists held an alternative event to support her freedom of expression. The furor arose when she made comparisons between an Israeli military operation in the West Bank and the Holocaust. “We are a nation that went through the Holocaust. How can we do things like this to another nation?” she told Israel’s Army Radio. In an interview she gave to The Associated Press following those remarks, Ms. Yarkoni said she was tired of war, of dead young men and heartbroken mothers. “I am tired. For 51 years I am singing about Israel all over the world, telling stories about how it was before — the first war, the second war, every war. War,

war, war. “They call me the singer of wars. I don’t like this name. “I want Ms. Yarkoni to be the in 2002 singer of Israel,” she said. Ms. Yarkoni’s songs tell of Israel’s pioneering days following the 1948 war that led to its creation, a war in which she served as a radio operator. For years, the khaki-clad Yarkoni was a fixture at Israeli army bases as she entertained soldiers, and many of her songs became classics that still resonate with Israelis and are performed at remembrance day ceremonies. Upon word of her death, tributes from Israeli politicians across the spectrum poured in, and her music filled radio airwaves. “Many soldiers sang her songs along with her that were steeped in a love for Israel,” said Defense Minister Ehud Barak. “One of the greatest Israeli singers . . . Yaffa Yarkoni’s songs made up the soundtrack of Israel from the days of [Jewish] settlement,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said.

The spill occurred when a fuel tank trailer overturned on state Highway 112 near Nelson Creek. The State Patrol estimated that between 250 gallons and 300 gallons of gasoline flowed into the creek. Several dead fish have been found near the swiftflowing creek, and officials will investigate to determine whether the gas caused the deaths.

A3 Briefly: Nation 4 found dead in California condo shooting CORONADO, Calif. — Authorities say a New Year’s Day shooting has left four people dead at a condominium near San Diego. Police responded to a 9-1-1 cellphone call early Sunday of shots fired in Coronado, a wealthy seaside suburb of about 24,000 people on San Diego Bay. San Diego County sheriff’s homicide Lt. Larry Nesbit said a man was found dead in the doorway from an apparent gunshot wound. He said the bodies of two men and a woman were found inside the condo. He wouldn’t say how they died. Detectives said they weren’t looking for a gunman.

By 11 a.m. Sunday, the fire was burning itself out but had destroyed the building and caused it to cave in on itself, he said. Police Chief Doug Bernabei said at a news conference that two teenage boys, a 15-year-old from Peru and a 17-year-old from La Salle, were charged with aggravated arson.

Court impartiality

WASHINGTON — Chief Justice John Roberts says he has “complete confidence” in his colleagues’ ability to step away from cases where their personal interests are at stake, and noted that judges should not be swayed by “partisan demands.” The comment, included in Roberts’ year-end report, comes after lawmakers demanded that two jusEx-factory burns tices recuse PERU, Ill. — A fire at a huge themselves former clock factory that police from the high Roberts say was deliberately lighted pro- court’s review vided an eerie backdrop for a of President Barack Obama’s northern Illinois city’s New health care law aimed at Year’s celebrations. extending coverage to more Despite the efforts of firethan 30 million people. fighters from throughout the Republicans want Justice area, the city landmark was Elena Kagan off the case destroyed. because of her work in the The blaze at the former Obama administration as solicitor general, whereas Democrats Westclox Co. clock complex, say Justice Clarence Thomas which covers a two-block by should back away because of his four-block span of downtown wife’s work with groups that Peru, began around the time opposed changes to the law. people were counting down the last seconds of 2011.

Briefly: World Iran produces first nuclear fuel rod, it says TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian scientists have produced the nation’s first nuclear fuel rod, a feat of engineering the West has doubted Tehran capable of, the country’s nuclear agency said Sunday. The announcement marks another step in Tehran’s efforts to achieve proficiency in the entire nuclear fuel cycle — from exploring uranium ore to producing nuclear fuel — despite U.N. sanctions and measures by the U.S. and others to get it to halt aspects of its atomic work that could provide a possible pathway to weapons production. Tehran has long said it is forced to seek a way to manufacture the fuel rods on its own, since the sanctions ban it from buying them on foreign markets. Nuclear fuel rods are tubes containing pellets of enriched uranium that provide fuel for nuclear reactors.

Office sweeps CAIRO — A top Egyptian official responsible for overseeing civil society groups on Sunday defended sweeps through the offices of 10 human rights and pro-democracy organizations, rejecting denunciations from the U.S., U.N. and Germany. It was the first comment from

the Egyptian government since the sweeps Thursday that targeted, among others, U.S.based groups invited to Naga observe Egypt’s months-long election process. Reports of heavily armed police and soldiers storming into offices, sealing the doors, rifling through files and confiscating computers set off a wave of international protest against Egypt’s rulers. International Cooperation Minister Faiza Aboul Naga defended the operation as a legitimate investigation into organizations suspected of operating without permits and receiving “political funding” against the law.

Sides to meet JERUSALEM — Israel and the Palestinians said Sunday that their chief peace negotiators would attend a gathering of international diplomats in neighboring Jordan this week, bringing the sides together for the first time in more than a year. Officials stressed that the meeting would not be a formal negotiating session. Nonetheless, it could mark an important step toward restarting peace talks, which broke down in September 2010.

Medicare debate will aim at baby boomers Minimum age, other factors on ’12 agenda BY RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — Baby boomers take note: Medicare as your parents have known it is headed for big changes no matter who wins the White House in 2012. You may not like it, but you might have to accept it. Dial down the partisan rhetoric and surprising similarities emerge from competing policy prescriptions by President Barack Obama and leading Republicans such as Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan. Limit the overall growth of Medicare spending? It’s in both approaches. Squeeze more money from upper-income retirees and some in the middle-class? Ditto. Raise the eligibility age? That too, if the deal is right.

1.5 million sign up yearly With more than 1.5 million baby boomers a year signing up for Medicare, the program’s future is one of the most important economic issues for anyone now 50 or older. Health care costs are the most unpredictable part of retirement, and Medicare remains an exceptional deal for retirees, who can reap benefits worth far more than the payroll taxes they paid in during their careers. “People would like to have what they used to have. What they don’t seem to understand is that it’s already changed,” said Gail Wilensky, a former Medicare administrator and adviser to Republicans. “Medicare as we have known it is not part of our future.” Two sets of numbers underscore that point.

Quick Read


President Lyndon Johnson signs the Medicare bill into law while former President Harry S. Truman, right, observes during a ceremony at the Truman Library in Independence, Mo., on July 30, 1965. First, Medicare’s giant trust fund for inpatient care is projected to run out of money in 2024. At that point, the program will collect only enough payroll taxes to pay 90 percent of benefits. Second, researchers estimate that 20 to 30 percent of the more than $500 billion that Medicare now spends annually is wasted on treatments and procedures of little or no benefit to patients. Taken together, that means policymakers can’t let Medicare keep running on autopilot and they’ll look for cuts before any payroll tax increases. Privatization is the biggest divide between Democrats and Republicans. Currently, about 75 percent of Medicare recipients are in the traditional government-run, fee-forservice program and 25 percent are in private insurance plans known as Medicare Advantage. Ryan’s original approach, part of a budget plan the House passed in the spring, would have put 100 percent of future retirees into private insurance. His latest plan, developed with Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., would

keep traditional Medicare as an option, competing with private plans. Older people would get a fixed payment they could use for private health insurance or traditional Medicare. Proponents call it “premium support.” To foes, it’s a voucher.

Questions poised Under both of Ryan’s versions, people now 55 or older would not have to make any changes. GOP presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich praise his latest plan. How would it work? Would it save taxpayers money? Would it shift costs to retirees as Ryan’s earlier plan did? Would Congress later phase out traditional Medicare? Those and other questions must still be answered. “I’m not sure anybody has come up with a formula on this that makes people comfortable,” said health economist Marilyn Moon, who formerly served as a trustee helping to oversee Medicare finances.

At 11:30 a.m., the Pierce County Sheriff ’s Office received a report of shots fired and a ranger in need of assistance, Troyer said. The National Park Service closed the 368-squaremile Mount Rainier park as they searched for the gunman, Taylor said. Visitors and park staff in the Paradise area are in

lockdown at the Jackson Visitor Center along with park staff. Park staff were being assisted in the search for the shooter by the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department, State Patrol and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. When authorities arrived, Troyer said, they also encountered gunfire

Olympic National Park. Mount Rainier park headquarters have moved, but the site still contains a museum, a hotel, restaurant and gift shop, all open year-round.

Briefly: State 4 shot during house party in Seattle area SEATTLE — Four people were shot early on New Year’s Day during a house part in the Skyway neighborhood of South Seattle. King County sheriff’s Sgt. Cindi West told KOMO-TV three men and a woman were shot early Sunday. They were taken to Harborview Medical Center, where two victims are said to be in critical condition. Witnesses told deputies that the suspected shooter had been at the party earlier in the evening and was asked to leave after an argument. West said the man returned and started shooting people, then ran away. Investigators said it appears someone at the party returned fire but West says it’s not known if the original shooter was wounded.

Zoo’s ‘stowaway’ fox dies SEATTLE — An elderly arctic fox who wound up in a Seattle zoo after stowing away in a trash container on a tiny island in Alaska’s Aleutian chain was euthanized last week due to age-related ailments. Experts at Woodland Park Zoo estimate Feliks was 3 to 5 years old when he was found in 2004 in a container shipped

to the Port of Seattle from the island of Shemya. He was underweight, had ear mites and hind-limb weakness. Feliks was judged a poor candidate for reintroduction to the wild. With good food and medical care, he recovered and lived a long life in the zoo’s Northern Trail exhibit with mountain goats and a female arctic fox. Zoo curator Dr. Jennifer Pramuk said many arctic foxes in the wild don’t live past age 3. Feliks was euthanized Thursday. Typically weighing no more than 10 pounds, the arctic fox has a gray or blue coat in the summer and a thick, warm white coat in the winter.

Alcohol tied to fatal crash OAKVILLE — The Grays Harbor County undersheriff said alcohol appears to be a factor in a crash that killed three on a logging road near Oakville on New Year’s Eve. KOMO-TV reported that a car went off the road and struck a tree. Undersheriff Rick Scott said three of the people inside the car — a 52-year-old male driver, a 26-year-old man and a 21-year-old woman — were pronounced dead at the scene. Another passenger, a woman, 19, was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center. The Associated Press

Peninsula Voices Rayonier site Next time Port Angeles has an industrial site to clean up, let’s not forget how attentive to the local community that the state Department of Ecology has been in its expeditious management of Rayonier. Ecology’s 2008 announcement that the Rayonier cleanup would

finally start “moving forward” with “accelerated schedules,” along with the department’s determination that “it doesn’t make sense” for the city of Port Angeles to be represented on the Natural Resource Damage Assessment, or NERDA, Council because it doesn’t have “ownership” or “stewardship” interest in cleanup of the property,

represents the epitome of bureaucratic mismanagement and arrogance! Perhaps Ecology forgets that the City Council is the governmental body duly elected by its own citizens to represent the interests of approximately 19,000 people within its jurisdictional borders. Maybe some Ecology staffers don’t realize other

What it takes to say ‘Nuts!’ to Iran WHEN THE GERMANS told Gen. Anthony McAuliffe to surrender his forces in Belgium during World War II, the commander of the 101st Airborne Division famously replied, “Nuts!” The German officers didn’t Froma quite get his Harrop drift, which was “Go to hell.” Iran has just threatened to block the flow of oil from the Persian Gulf if the United States follows through on a plan to slap penalties against companies doing business with its central bank. That would slow sales of Iranian oil to a drip. Europeans are talking of joining such a boycott. The sanctions are viewed as a non-military way to stop Iran from going forward on its nuclear

weapons program, which it is clearly doing, according to a recent International Atomic Energy Agency report. Without the oil revenues, Iran’s fragile economy would crumble, along with its leadership. President Barack Obama’s answer to the Iranian threat was even shorter than Gen. McAuliffe’s four-letter repartee. He said nothing, though that’s fine as long as he sticks with the program. (Cowboy bombast is probably what Iran’s leaders most crave.) In any case, the 5th Fleet command in Bahrain has issued a somewhat wordier response: “The U.S. Navy is a flexible, multi-capable force . . . always ready to counter malevolent actions to ensure freedom of navigation.” Analysts say the likelihood of Iran’s actually closing the Strait of Hormuz is low. That would cut off what little oil revenue it receives.













(Some see Iran’s saber rattling as a trick to raise the price of oil.) If Iran does follow through, one may worry about Obama’s resolve. For some reason, blame for prices at the pump gets laid at the president’s feet. As you may have heard, there will be an election this November. While the U.S. has made strides on replacing oil, renewable energy sources produce just over 14 percent of our electricity. Much of that comes from hydroelectric projects built long ago (Hoover Dam, Grand Coulee Dam, Tennessee Valley Authority dams). Oil interests in this country habitually argue: Why bother? Oil is so much cheaper than wind, solar and other kinds of alternative energy. Case closed. They rarely look two steps ahead to imagine a situation where Iran would close the strait. One-fifth of the world’s oil supply passes through this narrow opening, where the Persian

Gulf empties into the Arabian Sea. And somehow, they never add to their per-barrel calculations the blood and treasure expended in our defense of oil supplies. Iran is playing on Americans’ fear of higher energy prices, something that has long kept this country slave to the whims of petro-dictators. Rising oil prices turn the masses into Jell-O. And rather than come back with a strong defense — a Manhattan Project for alternative energy, whose products do best at times of high oil prices — the U.S. leadership pays tribute to some of the worst regimes. The true “nuts” response to Iranian-type oil threats now comes from Germany. In June, Chancellor Angela Merkel set Germany on course to generate 80 percent of its power from renewable sources — wind, solar, geothermal and bioenergy — by 2050.

Merkel insists that the program is job-creating. By contrast, many American politicians tar any energy program not in the pocket of the fossil fuel industry as “job-killing.” While Germany raised the share of electricity made from renewables to 20 percent now from 6 percent in 2000, it enjoyed higher wages, lower unemployment and stronger exports. Case closed, you might say. Imagine what America could say to the petro-terrorists and assorted oil sheiks if our advance toward renewable energy matched Germany’s. It could say “nuts” — and some other choice words.

Ending on sour note Seahawks fall short in OT loss to Cards


SEATTLE — Whether starting or coming off the bench, there’s no doubting the shooting prowess of Washington’s C.J. Wilcox. Moved to a reserve role for the start of Pac-12 Conference play, Wilcox responded by matching his career-high with 24 points, and the Huskies improved to 2-0 to start the conference season with a 76-60 win over Oregon after beating Oregon State on Thursday night. “I just know I have to come off and create a sort of spark for the team coming off the bench,” Wilcox said. “I’m OK with it. It’s good.” Wilcox was shuttled to the bench earlier this week as a way to get freshman Tony Wroten and 7-footer Aziz N’Diaye in the starting lineup together. Wilcox still came through with his highest point total since scoring 24 last season against UCLA, making 8 of 11 shots and 6 of 8 3-pointers — matching his career-high in 3-pointers made. Perhaps most important, Wilcox scored 13 during a key second-half run for Washington (8-5, 2-0 Pac-12) after the Ducks had trimmed a double-digit deficit down to four. “If he starts, if he comes off the bench, if he plays with any combinations that we have, he’s going to do the same thing,” Washington coach Lorenzo Romar said of Wilcox. In his first game coming off the bench this season on Thursday night, Wilcox played 30 minutes and finished with 15 points. He was even more dynamic on Saturday in 33 minutes, which is more than his average for the season. Wroten added 17 points, five assists and four rebounds, while Abdul Gaddy added 12 points and Terrance Ross had 11, and Washington shot nearly 54 percent. “It’s like you pick your poison if everybody is shooting like that,” Gaddy said. “But it’s all about ball movement.” E.J. Singler led Oregon (10-4, 1-1) with 20 points, 13 coming in the first half. But the Ducks shot just 32 percent and leading scorer Devoe Joseph was 1 of 13 shooting and finished with just four points, 10 below his season average. But the Ducks continued to hang around, closing within 48-44 in the second half before Wilcox nearly put together the Huskies’ decisive run by himself. Washington led 47-36 when a backcourt dustup between Wroten and Oregon’s Olu Ashaolu resulted in double technicals for Ashaolu and Washington’s Darnell Gant. TURN




Arizona Cardinals quarterback John Skelton throws while under pressure from Seattle defensive end Raheem Brock during the second half Sunday.

GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Arizona Cardinals needed a little extra time to wrap up its season victory. Then again, that’s hardly anything new. Larry Fitzgerald’s spectacular one-handed grab help set up a 28-yard field goal by Jay Feely to give Arizona a 23-20 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, the Cardinals’ fourth overtime victory at home in the last nine weeks of the season. Arizona (8-8) finished the season 7-2 after a six-game losing streak left it 1-6. Seattle (7-9) had rallied to tie the game after trailing 20-10 early in the fourth quarter. Fitzgerald caught nine passes for 149 yards after one reception for 2 yards in the first half. John Skelton completed 22 of 40 for 271 yards and a touchdown with one interception for Arizona. Tarvaris Jackson was 21 of 35 for 222 yards and a touchdown with one pick for the Seahawks. The Cardinals earlier had overtime victories over St. Louis, Dallas and Cleveland. The Seahawks finished with the same record as a year ago, when 7-9 was good enough to win the NFC West. Arizona’s Patrick Peterson, who made the Pro Bowl on special teams as a rookie, returned a punt 42 yards to set up a field goal, then blocked Steven Hauschka’s 24-yard field goal attempt.

It was the NFL-leading fifth blocked field goal for the Cardinals, two of them by Peterson. Seattle won the toss heading into overtime, and Leon Washington’s 47-yard kickoff return gave the Seahawks the ball at their own 40, but they failed to move it and had to punt. Arizona’s game-winning drive started at the 19. On third-and-3 at the 26, Skelton threw over the middle to Fitzgerald, who caught it between two defenders for a 26-yard gain to the Seahawks 48. Skelton’s quarterback sneak on fourth and less than a yard gave Arizona a first down at the Seattle 37. Arizona had it second-and-9 at the 36 when Skelton threw toward but not particularly close to Fitzgerald, who somehow gathered in the ball with one hand and cradled it as he fell to the ground. A review confirmed that it was a catch. Down 20-10 early in the fourth quarter, Seattle tied with a pair of big plays by two rookies, Richard Sherman and Lockette. First, Sherman stepped in front of intended receiver Andre Roberts for an interception that set up a chip shot field goal by Hauschka, then Jackson lofted the long pass to Lockette, who beat cornerback Marshay Green, and it was 20-20 with 7:47 remaining. Green had just been activated from the practice squad on Saturday.

Sequim boys split games at tourney PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

LYNDEN — The Sequim boys basketball team split with two strong teams at the Lynden Christian holiday tournament last weekend. Host Lynden Christian (7-1), the eventual tourney champion, beat the Wolves (8-2) 68-52 to stop Sequim’s current winning streak at two games in the first round. But the Wolves rebounded by starting a new winning streak by shading Sehome of Bellingham (7-3) 55-52 in the second round for third place. The Mariners came back

from a 10-point deficit entering the fourth quarter (44-34) to make the final moments of the game interesting. Jayson Brocklesby led three players in double figures with 16 points while Gabe Carter added 13 points and 15 rebounds and Corbin Webb sank 12 points. All three players had four assists each. Carter was 4-for-6 in the game from 3-point range. Brocklesby also had three steals and a blocked shot while Carter had two blocked shots to go along with his game-high 15 boards.

Brady leads Pats in 49-point comeback THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

has lost 21 straight road games to the Packers, including the postseason.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Tom Brady led the New England Patriots back from a three-touchdown deficit as they scored 49 straight points and clinched home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs with a 49-21 win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Brady finished the regular season with the second most yards passing in NFL history, 5,235, after throwing for 338. Drew Brees, who last week broke Dan Marino’s record of 5,084 with the Miami Dolphins in 1984, added 389 Sunday for the New Orleans Saints and ended with 5,486. The Patriots (13-3) finished the season with eight straight wins. But for the second straight game, they fell behind early. They beat the Miami Dolphins 27-24 after trailing 17-0 at halftime, then rallied after the Bills (6-10) scored touchdowns on their first three possessions, drawing boos from the home fans.

Bears 17, Vikings 13 MINNEAPOLIS — Charles Tillman’s interception return in the second quarter gave Chicago (8-8) the lead for good, and the Bears stopped their five-game losing streak despite 3½ sacks by Jared Allen. Allen finished the season with 22 sacks, behind Michael Strahan’s NFL mark of 22½ for the Giants in 2001. Joe Webb relieved Christian Ponder at quarterback for the Vikings (3-13) for the third time in the last month, but the scrambling Webb wasn’t able to keep the Vikings from matching the worst record in franchise history.

Eagles 34, Redskins 10


Jaguars 19, Colts 13 JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Indianapolis locked up the top pick in April’s NFL draft, setting the stage to select Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck. Maurice Jones-Drew ran for a season-high 169 yards, clinching the NFL rushing title and breaking Fred Taylor’s single-season franchise record in the Jaguars’ victory. The Jaguars (5-11) became the first AFC South opponent to sweep Indianapolis (2-14) since 2002 and gave outgoing owner Wayne Weaver a victory in his final game. The Colts may have been the big winners, though. Indy would have dropped to the No. 2 spot in the draft with a victory in Jacksonville. Instead, owner Jim Irsay will have the choice to draft Luck and give the team a young quarterback to join four-time MVP Peyton Manning.

Titans 23, Texans 22 HOUSTON — Matt Hasselbeck threw two touchdown passes and the Titans kept alive their playoff hopes. The Titans (9-7) have their first winning record since 2008 in

New Enland quarterback Tom Brady scrambles against Buffalo on Sunday.

NFL Sunday Mike Munchak’s first season, but their postseason fate depended on the outcome of later games in Cincinnati, Oakland and Denver. Tennessee got some early help when the Jets lost in Miami. Houston (10-6) will head into its first postseason on a threegame losing streak. The Texans were locked into the No. 3 seed in the AFC playoffs and coach Gary Kubiak played mostly reserves in the second half. Rookie starter T.J. Yates left the game after one series with a shoulder injury and was replaced by Jake Delhomme. Kubiak said Yates could have returned if necessary. The Texans pulled within a point late in the game on a 5-yard TD pass by Delhomme, but failed on a 2-point conversion that would have won it.

Each turnover led to a field goal, and the Jets gave up six third-down conversions during the Dolphins’ 21-play, 94-yard drive for their only touchdown. The Jets (8-8) came into the game needing a win along with losses by three other teams to reach the playoffs. Instead, they finished the season with three consecutive defeats, a big step backward for a team that reached the AFC title game each of the past two years. The Dolphins (6-10) completed their third consecutive losing season, their longest such stretch since the 1960s.

Saints 45, Panthers 17

NEW ORLEANS — Drew Brees threw for 389 yards and five touchdowns, and New Orleans set a slew of NFL and club records. The NFL single-season records set by the Saints (13-3), who head into the playoffs on an eight-game winning streak, included offenDolphins 19, Jets 17 sive yards with 7,474, team yards MIAMI — Mark Sanchez passing with 5,347 and first threw three interceptions and the downs with 416. Jets were eliminated from the Brees, who was 28 of 35, finished with a record 468 compleAFC wild-card playoff race.

tions this season, breaking Peyton Manning’s 2010 mark of 450. He finished the season completing 71.6 percent of his passes, breaking his own 2009 NFL record 70.6 completion percentage. Tight end Jimmy Graham had 97 yards receiving, finishing with an NFL record 1,310 for a tight end. The Panthers finished 6-10.

Packers 45, Lions 41 GREEN BAY, Wis. — Backup quarterback Matt Flynn threw a touchdown pass to Jermichael Finley with 1:10 left to finish off his record-setting day of 480 yards and six TD passes. With Aaron Rodgers resting for the playoffs, Flynn set club single-game records for yards passing and touchdowns. It was an ideal afternoon for the Packers (15-1), who got to rest their starting quarterback and several other big-name players without losing momentum. Flynn barely got the Packers past Matthew Stafford, who threw for 520 yards with five touchdowns and two interceptions. Playoff-bound Detroit (10-6),

PHILADELPHIA — Michael Vick threw three touchdown passes, including a 62-yarder to DeSean Jackson, as the Eagles closed the season with four straight wins. The Eagles (8-8) are hoping to carry the momentum from their strong finish into next season. But they can’t be satisfied after entering the year with Super Bowl aspirations. It’s the first time since 2007 that Philadelphia didn’t qualify for the postseason and just the fourth time in coach Andy Reid’s 13 seasons. The Eagles set a franchise record for total yards on offense with 6,386. The Redskins (5-11) finished in last place in the NFC East for a franchise-worst fourth straight year. It was Mike Shanahan’s worst full season in 18 years as a coach.

49ers 34, Rams 27 ST. LOUIS — Michael Crabtree caught two touchdown passes, one from kicker David Akers on a perfectly executed trick play, and San Francisco wrapped up the No. 2 playoff seed in the NFC and a first-round bye. Crabtree and Vernon Davis had big days for a team short of pass catchers and Tarell Brown had a pair of interceptions that led to touchdowns as the 49ers (13-3) beat the Rams (2-14) for the second time the last five games.

Dawgs: Washington opens Pac-12 at 2-0 CONTINUED FROM B1 Ross hitting a crossover, stepback 3 to give the Huskies a 59-46 lead. The technical also proved to Wilcox added another baseline be the start of Oregon’s final basket and Gaddy capped the surge as the Ducks scored eight run with an open 3-pointer from of the next nine points to pull the wing to give the Huskies within 48-44 after consecutive their biggest lead to that point at easy baskets for Singler. 64-49 with 7:59 left. Romar called timeout and Washington led by as many as after the teams exchanged turnovers, Wilcox connected on back- 19 in the closing minutes. Oregon was trying for a 2-0 to-back 3-pointers to put the lead conference start after knocking back to 54-46. Even after a timeout, the run off Washington State on Thurscontinued with Wilcox scoring on day night. It didn’t help that Joseph a left-handed baseline drive and

couldn’t make anything. Joseph came in averaging 14.7 points for the Ducks, but his one basket came midway through the first half. It was a theme throughout the Oregon lineup as the Ducks got plenty of looks from the perimeter, but couldn’t make Washington pay for slow defensive rotations. The Ducks were just 5 of 23 on 3-pointers after coming in as a 36 percent 3-point-shooting team. Ashaolu, who had 23 points and 10 rebounds against Wash-

ington State, was limited to six points and 12 rebounds. It got so bad for the Ducks that Carlos Emory couldn’t convert a breakaway dunk attempt with 2 minutes left, losing his grip of the ball as he went up for the uncontested slam. Oregon coach Dana Altman kept his players in the locker room for an extended period after the game. “Disappointing performance. We’ve obviously got a lot of work to do,” Altman said. “We couldn’t guard their drib-

ble drives, we gave up a lot of open 3s. There wasn’t much defense there at all.” Oregon had its chances, especially in the first half when Washington’s defensive rotations were sluggish and gave the Ducks looks at open perimeter shots. The Ducks were just 2 of 14 on 3-point attempts in the first half and finished 5 of 23. Singler made 4 of 9 shots in the first half, while the rest of the Ducks were a combined 7 for 25.

Fun ’n’ Advice






DEAR ABBY: I have a problem that happens once a year: my birthday at work. There’s a huge potluck with cake, banners, gifts and a card that has been circulating around the office for a week. I cringe at the attention. Everyone means well, but these celebrations are pure torture for me. I’m a 7-year-old all over again, trying my best to keep the anxiety and waterworks in check. It goes back to my childhood. Growing up, we were very poor, and my parents made it clear that sacrifices had been made for my “big day,” which always ended up with me guiltridden and in tears. As an adult, I celebrate my birthday with my husband and son. We keep it low-key, and I’m surrounded by the unconditional love I craved as a child. I have tried bowing out and asked that gifts be made to charity instead, but I am told, “Oh, come on! We all have to go through this.” I went so far as to confide to the party planners why I’m so uncomfortable. To my horror, a few of them began complaining about how hard they worked pulling everything together or how late they stayed up baking the cake, etc. It was like hearing my parents all over again. Am I being too sensitive? I’d appreciate your opinion. Spare Me in Michigan Dear Spare Me: Because you have tried talking to your co-workers about the special circumstances surrounding your reason for not wanting an office celebration, it’s time to talk to your supervisor or someone in human resources. I see no reason why you should have to suffer emotional stress so that everyone can have a party on your birthday. And no, you are not being too sensitive. The party-planners have been insensitive.

DEAR ABBY Over the years, I have grown close to Van Buren Grandma Jane. My husband and I visit her regularly. Dad knows but says it’s better if Mom doesn’t know. Grandma has asked me several times if I know why Mom dislikes her. She’s in her 90s, isolated from her family and desperately searching for answers. I can only imagine it stems from some disagreement dating back to before I was born. I am also sad that Dad won’t visit his mother because Mom won’t go with him. I can’t believe Grandma Jane has done anything to deserve being forced to die alone, and it hurts knowing my mother would be so vindictive out of spite. Grandma’s good health can’t last forever. I worry what will happen when she can no longer live independently. I believe in reconciliation, tolerance and a little maturity, but I know I am in the minority. What can I possibly do? Loyal Daughter, Caring Granddaughter Dear Loyal And Caring: Not knowing the details of what caused the rift, I’m advising you to do as your father has suggested. If he were stronger, he would have insisted decades ago that his mother be treated with respect. That he would allow her to be ridiculed or treated rudely in his presence while he remained silent is shameful. While you can’t heal the breach, you can remain caring and supportive of your grandmother. When she can no longer live independently, she will need someone to help her or to move her to assisted living. The ideal person to watch over her then would be you.


Dear Abby: My mother never liked my paternal grandmother. Grandma “Jane” was tolerated but often treated as an object of ridicule or contempt. My sister unquestioningly absorbed my mother’s prejudice against her and is blatantly rude to her. by Mell Lazarus

Can you believe it? Fuel top U.S. export Factors at home, abroad siphon energy-hog image BY CHRIS KAHN THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — For the first time, the top export of the United States, the world’s biggest gas guzzler, is — wait for it — fuel. Measured in dollars, the nation was on pace in 2011 to ship more gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel than any other single export, according to U.S. Census data going back to 1990.

First time in 6 decades It will also be the first year in more than 60 that America has been a net exporter of these fuels. Just how big of a shift is this? A decade ago, fuel wasn’t

even among the top 25 exports. And for the last five years, America’s top export was aircraft. The trend is significant because for decades the U.S. has relied on huge imports of fuel from Europe in order to meet demand. It only reinforced the image of America as an energy hog. And up until a few years ago, whenever gasoline prices climbed, there were complaints in Congress that U.S. refiners were not growing quickly enough to satisfy domestic demand; that controversy would appear to be over. Still, the U.S. is nowhere close to energy independence. America is still the

world’s largest importer of crude oil. From January to October, the country imported 2.7 billion barrels of oil worth roughly $280 billion. Fuel exports, worth an estimated $88 billion in 2011, have surged for two reasons: ■Crude oil, the raw material from which gasoline and other refined products are made, is a lot more expensive. Oil prices averaged $95 a barrel in 2011, while gasoline averaged $3.52 a gallon — a record. A decade ago oil averaged $26 a barrel, while gasoline averaged $1.44 a gallon. ■ The volume of fuel exports is rising. The U.S. is using less fuel because of a weak economy and more efficient cars and trucks. That allows refiners to sell more fuel to

rapidly growing economies in Latin America, for example. In 2011, U.S. refiners exported 117 million gallons per day of gasoline, diesel, jet fuel and other petroleum products, up from 40 million gallons per day a decade earlier.

Domestic downside There’s at least one domestic downside to America’s growing role as a fuel exporter. Experts say the trend helps explain why U.S. motorists are paying more for gasoline. The more fuel that’s sent overseas, the less of a supply cushion there is at home. Gasoline supplies are being exported to the highest bidder, said Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst at Oil Price Information Service.

make up for its lack of refineries. And thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a simple reason why Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s refiners have been eager to export to these markets: gasoline demand in the U.S. has been falling every year since 2007. It dropped by another 2.5 percent in 2011. With the economy struggling, motorists cut back. Also, cars and trucks have become more fuel-efficient and the government mandates the use of more corn-based ethanol fuel. The last time the U.S. was a net exporter of fuels was 1949, when Harry Truman was president. That year, the U.S. exported 86 million barrels and imported 82 million barrels. In the first 10 months of 2011, the nation exported 848 million barrels (worth $73.4 billion) and imported 750 million barrels.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a world market,â&#x20AC;? he said. Refining companies wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say how much they make by selling fuel overseas. But analysts say those sales are likely generating higher profits per gallon than the fuel sold in the U.S. Otherwise, they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t occur. The value of U.S. fuel exports has grown steadily over the past decade, coinciding with rising oil prices and increased demand around the globe.

BETTER HEARING with a human touch m

Migraines are often caused by hormone imbalance or triggered by foods or additives such as MSG (monosodium glutamate, commonly found in flavor sauces and soy products) or artificial sweeteners such as aspartame. It can help to keep a food diary and try an elimination diet if you see a pattern of migraine occurrence after eating certain foods. When migraines do occur, the most appropriate drug for you depends on the unique characteristics of your migraine attack, as well as your preference for dosage form, etc. The optimal medication produces a rapid, sustained pain-free response with minimal adverse effects. Suspensions or suppositories can be used to treat migraines when an oral tablet or nasal spray is not suitable for a particular patient. A combination of isometheptene mucate, dichloralphenazone, and acetaminophen (most commonly known as MidrinÂŽ) has been used for decades to treat migraine. This combination may have a slight advantage compared with the drug sumatriptan succinate in the early treatment of mild-to-moderate migraine. Recently, midrinÂŽ and other commercial preparations containing the same active ingredients have been discontinued.
