More snow — and freezing rain — blanket the Peninsula BY TOM CALLIS

PORT ANGELES — The first blast of snowy weather of the year on the North Olympic Peninsula refused to go quietly. From Port Townsend to at least Joyce, fresh snow showers blanketed sidewalks and driveways recently cleared of the white stuff Thursday, which was predicted to be cold but calm.

Every school on the North Olympic Peninsula, except for Crescent School District in Joyce, which had a two-hour delay, was closed. “The buses were able to get in and out, the highway was safe

Trash can lids provide simple pleasure in storm BY ARWYN RICE TOM CALLIS



In the event of a snowstorm, a shortage of proper snow supplies can result in a run on trash can lids. Snow survival supplies — such as chips, dip, sleds and toboggans — quickly sold out at Forks Outfitters this week, store director Dave Gedlund said. “We sold a lot of snow toys,� Gedlund said. When the sleds sold out, enterprising residents made inroads on the store’s supply of trash can lids, he said. The store was resupplied late Tuesday, Gedlund said.

Forks wasn’t the only place where people were taking advantage of the longer-than-anticipated storm. Residents across Clallam County appeared to be taking advantage of the powder, making a long weekend even longer by taking snow days and turning virtually any hill into their own downhill course. Here are some of their stories:

Newsmakers Celebrity scoop ■ By The Associated Press

Bassist now seminary student CONCORDIA SEMINARY IN suburban St. Louis gets an eclectic mix of students in a program allowing them to train for the ministry online — electricians, farmers, entrepreneurs — and even a founder of one of the bestknown thrash metal bands. David Ellefson plays bass for Megadeth. He also is an online student in the Specific Ministry Program at Concordia Seminary operated by the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. After two years at Concordia, Ellefson will be eligible for ordination. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that Ellefson’s studies illustrate why distance learning programs at seminaries have a growing popularity nationwide, allowing students to attend divinity schools without uprooting their lives.

Even in a nontraditional learning setting, Ellefson is a nontraditional student given his band has recorded albums with titles such as “Killing Is My Business . . . And Business Is Good!” The curious mix of rock and religion has been part of Ellefson’s life since childhood. Megadeth remains and the band will begin a new tour with Motorhead next week in New Jersey. Ellefson will tend to his studies during down time on the tour bus. He knows it won’t be easy. He has learned to keep his faith and his onstage persona separate. As for songwriting, he now tries to “stay away from darker themes.” “Some people want to morph things together into one, but I have a hand in both worlds,” he said. “I love praise and worship music, and I love heavy metal.”

Ringo interview British actor-comedian

Russell Brand will interview former Beatles drummer Ringo Starr for Sirius XM Brand Radio. “Town Hall with Ringo Starr” will air live from Los Angeles on Jan. 30. Music producer Don Was will moderate the Q&A, and Starr will perform at the event. A day later, Starr will release his 17th solo album, “Ringo 2012.” Brand said in a statement Thursday that he’s a “massive fan” of Starr, “but like most people, I am ignorant as to his life before he rose to prominence with ‘Thomas the Tank Engine.’” Added Brand: “Now we can unravel the enigma of Ringo.” Past “Town Hall” specials have featured Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Coldplay and members of Nirvana.


WEDNESDAY’S QUESTION: How satisfied are you with state and local government’s response to this week’s snow? Very satisfied

By The Associated Press

JOHNNY OTIS, 90, the “godfather of rhythm and blues” who wrote and recorded the R&B classic “Willie and the Hand Jive” and for decades evangelized black music to white audiences as a bandleader and radio host, has died. Mr. Otis, who had been in poor health for several years, died at his home in the Los Angeles foothill suburb of Altadena on Tuesday, said his manager, Terry Gould. Mr. Otis, who was white, was born John Veliotes to Greek immigrants and grew up in a black section of Berkeley, where he said he identified far more with black culture than his own. As a teenager, he changed his name because he thought Johnny Otis sounded more black. “As a kid, I decided that if our society dictated that one had to be black or white, I would be black,” he once explained. His musical tastes clearly reflected that adopted culture, and even after he became famous, his dark skin and hair often led audiences and club promoters to assume he was black like


his band mates. Mr. Otis was leading his own band in 1945 when he scored his first big hit, “Harlem Nocturne.” In 1950, 10 of his songs made Billboard Magazine’s R&B chart. His “Willie and the Hand Jive” sold more than 1.5 million copies and was covered years later by Eric Clapton. He later wrote “Every Beat of My Heart,” which was a hit for Gladys Knight & the Pips. But the influence of Mr. Otis was felt most through his ability to recognize and promote talent. He wove into his bands such diverse and legendary R&B vocalists as Etta James, Hank Ballard, Big Mama Thornton and The

Robins, the latter a group that would evolve into the Coasters. He produced Thornton’s original recording of “Hound Dog,” a song that would later become an even bigger hit for Elvis Presley. Mr. Otis saw himself as curator of black popular music, which for him represented much more than a diversion or livelihood. His cross-country R&B reviews and his radio and television appearances were dedicated to delivering black music to white audiences. “The music isn’t just the notes, it’s the culture — the way grandma cooked, the way Grandpa told stories, the way the kids walked and talked,” he once said.

Los Angeles detectives work a crime scene after a human head was discovered off a nearby trail Tuesday.

Body parts scattered near Hollywood sign LOS ANGELES — An investigation unfolding near the Hollywood sign in Los Angeles is playing out like a gory movie script, as police worked to identity a man whose body was found in parts over the past two days — first a head Tuesday, then two hands and two feet Wednesday. On Thursday, some 100 police officers and Police Academy recruits searched seven acres of brush in the Bronson Canyon wilderness park in Hollywood to see if they could find more body parts. Officers, some on horseback, pushed through waist- and shoulder-high scrub surrounding a semi-paved hiking trail. It would have been a perfect place to hide a body had it not been for a single curious dog, police said. A pooch being walked offleash on the trail Tuesday after-

noon tugged a plastic grocery bag from the brush about 100 yards from the park entrance gates and began playing with it. “It shakes the bag, and out pops the head,” Officer Bruce Borihanh said. Investigators checked fingerprints, dental records and missing-persons records in an effort to identify the victim, a graying man believed to be 45 to 60 years old.

Briefly: World Arab League considers longer mission BEIRUT — Syrian government tanks and armored vehicles have pulled back from an embattled mountain town near Damascus, activists and witnesses said Thursday, but at least 16 people were killed by security forces elsewhere as a monthlong Arab League factfinding mission expired. The 10-month uprising against Syrian President Bashar Assad has turned increasingly militarized and chaotic as more frustrated regime opponents and army defectors arm themselves and fight back against government forces. Arab League foreign ministers will consider extending their observer mission in Syria in a meeting Sunday in Cairo, officials said Thursday. Although the mission expired Thursday, Adnan al-Khudeir, head of Cairo operations room that handles reports by the monitors, said observers will remain in Syria until a decision is made Sunday.

Perry quits, endorses Gingrich for GOP nod BY CHRIS TOMLINSON THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

AUSTIN, Texas — Gov. Rick Perry dropped out of the presidential race Thursday, endorsed his old friend Newt Gingrich and returned home to Texas, where the failed White House candidate has three years left to serve as the chief executive. “I have come to the conclusion that there is no viable path to victory for my candidacy in 2012,” Perry said in North Charleston, S.C., just two days before the primary there. “I believe Newt is a conservative visionary who can transform our country.” Money also was a factor, with spokesman Ray Sullivan saying: “We have spent the bulk of our funds.” He added that Perry hasn’t ruled out running again for governor or the White House in 2016 if President Barack Obama is reelected. Perry ended his campaign where he launched it last August, when tea party and evangelical Christian leaders hailed him as a charismatic conservative and some early polls showed him as a front-runner for the Republican nomination. But soon after, Perry’s verbal gaffes and poor debate perfor-

mances sent his campaign into a tailspin from which it never recovered. It was too soon to tell whether Perry’s rocky turn on the national stage had damaged him politically at home. But already there were signs of his diminished clout. Several Texas donors who fueled his bid indicated they were likely to back Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor who is considered the more moderate candidate in the race. And South Carolina House speaker David Wilkins, who had supported Perry, ignored the governor’s recommendation and shifted his support to Romney, too. Short of a Gingrich victory leading to a job for Perry in Washington, Perry will most likely stay in Austin where — despite his dismal presidential campaign — he’s still considered the most powerful politician in the state. He has appointed more than 1,000 people to key government positions since becoming governor in 2000. State lawmakers also depend on his support. But that doesn’t mean he won’t face serious headwinds. Democrats insist the failed presidential run has diminished his power and embarrassed Texans.

Conservatives also have complained about the $2.6 million the state has spent on his security detail while he campaigned outside the state. Top Republicans, meanwhile, have been positioning themselves to replace him whether he won the presidency or retired in 2014. Roy Blount, a Perry supporter and deep-pocketed Republican donor in Texas, said he expected Perry to remain popular and powerful. “Everything he stood for resonates with Texans,” Blount said. “He’s got this state as a leading state, and he wants to continue that and expand it.” The Texas Democratic Party was ready Thursday to begin exploiting any perceived weakness created by Perry’s decision and called on him to focus on problems at home, including legal questions about the constitutionality of the school finance system as well as water shortages and greenhouse gas emissions. Perry’s biggest supporters, in turn, welcomed him home. Bill Hammond, president of the Texas Association of Business, said, “Gov. Perry has always been good for Texas business.”

Canada mulls pipeline options THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TORONTO — Canada is looking at alternatives for exporting its oil since U.S. President Barack Obama announced he was blocking a pipeline from Alberta to Texas. A pipeline executive said Thursday that the company was weighing whether to build a segment of the line — from Oklahoma to Texas — that wouldn’t require U.S. State Department approval. And government officials said Canada would push harder for a pipeline to the Pacific Coast, where oil could be shipped to China. At the same time, Canadian officials said, they are hopeful the

Quick Read

1,700-mile Keystone XL pipeline will be built. Alberta Premier Alison Redford, the leader of the Canadian province that has the world’s third-largest reserves of oil, said that while Canada is disappointed at Obama’s decision, the government believes Obama has made it clear the U.S. would consider a new Keystone XL pipeline application with a new routing. Obama called Prime Minister Stephen Harper to explain that the decision Wednesday was not on the merits of the pipeline but rather on the “arbitrary nature” of a Feb. 21 deadline set by Republican legislators as part of a tax measure he signed, Harper’s office said.

“The fact that the president has said that the decision was not based on the merits we take as a signal that there is an opportunity to make a decision that is in the national interest that allows the project to go ahead,” Redford told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. Calgary-based TransCanada Corp., which proposed the pipeline, said Thursday it was considering building the pipeline in segments, with the first connecting an existing pipeline in Oklahoma to refineries in Texas. The Obama administration had suggested development of an Oklahoma-to-Texas line to alleviate an oil glut at a Cushing, Oklahoma, storage hub.

A MASSIVE EFFORT to pump fuel from a Russian tanker to the iced-in Alaska city of Nome is complete, moving an estimated 1.3 million gallons into the city that faced a shortage after missing its last delivery. The pumping operation finished up at about 7 a.m., said Jason Evans, board chairman of Sitnasuak Native Corp., which arranged for the tanker delivery to Nome. But he said the mission was far from over. “Now on to getting them out of Nome and back out of the ice there,” Evans said of the tanker and a U.S. Coast Guard icebreaker frozen into the ice near the Nome harbor.

DREDGING UP A past that Newt Gingrich has worked hard to bury, the GOP presidential candidate’s second ex-wife said Gingrich asked for an “open marriage” in which he could have both a wife and a mistress. In an interview with ABC News’ “Nightline” on Thursday night, Marianne Gingrich said she refused to go along with the idea that she share her husband with Callista Bisek, who would later become his third wife. The explosive interview was airing just two days before the presidential primary in South Carolina, a state with a strong Christian conservative bent.

IT TOOK IOWA Republicans 16 days to decide they couldn’t tell for sure who won the Iowa caucuses, despite their earlier announcement that Mitt Romney had narrowly won. The final, certified results announced Thursday by Iowa Republican Chairman Matt Strawn had Rick Santorum 34 votes ahead of Romney. But Strawn said the party cannot declare a winner because results are incomplete — eight of the state’s 1,774 precincts did not report their certified totals by Wednesday’s 5 p.m. deadline. Strawn had announced hours after the Jan. 3 caucuses that Romney had won by eight votes.

THE WORLD LAST year wasn’t quite as warm as it has been for most of the past decade, government scientists said Thursday, but it continues a general trend of rising temperatures. The average global temperature was 57.9 degrees Fahrenheit, making 2011 the 11th hottest on record, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said. That’s 0.9 degrees warmer than the 20th century average, officials said. In fact, it was hotter than every year last century except 1998. One reason 2011 was milder than recent years was the La Niña cooling of the central Pacific Ocean.

Simple: Peninsula residents weather the storm CONTINUED FROM A1 Marie Davenport, Dungeness Loewe, who grew up skating on outdoor ponds and creeks, skated the puddle then, and when the temperatures dropped into the 20s this week, she waited for her chance. “I’ve been watching every day for it to freeze up enough,� she said. Thursday was finally that day, she and strapped on her long-unused ice skates. “It’s just barely skateable,� Loewe said, gliding around the snow-dusted ice. Loewe and her son didn’t just skate; they skied from their home on Georgiana Street. “It’s like a dream to be able to crosscountry ski on the waterfront trail,� Loewe said. “This weather is pretty amazing,� she said.

Buying goods at Pane d’Amore bake shop on South Fifth Avenue in Sequim, Davenport was taking the weather in stride Thursday, since she has a Chevy Suburban to cruise into town stress-free for errands as usual. Driving in snow, she said, “is a state of mind.� The only snow shoveling she had done so far at home was for her short-legged West Highland terrier, “so he can do his business.�

Four representatives of Clallam County MoveOn braved snowy weather in front of Bank of America on Thursday, calling on President Barrack Obama to stand up for the 99 percent and immediately launch a full investigation into Wall Street’s role in the foreclosure crisis. Banks that the group targeted include the corporate offices of Bank of America, Chase and Wells Fargo. The demonstrators who stood in front of the bank at 114 S.

Storm: Forks braces for flooding with melting CONTINUED FROM A1 The unexpected snowfall, which followed two storms earlier in the week, was caused once again by cold air from the Fraser River Valley in British Columbia slamming into a low-pressure system centered over Southwest Washington, said Jeff Michalski, Weather Service meteorologist. “We had only a 20 percent chance [of snow Thursday],� he said. “We’ll have to increase that.�

Snow, freezing rain New snowfall, expected to range between 1 to 3 inches, was concentrated in East Clallam County on Thursday morning, Tyler said, with some freezing rain in Forks. “It’s slicker than the dickens,� Forks Mayor Bryon Monohon said Thursday morning. “We got the streets sanded. I think right now, all we can do is see what happens when the rain comes in.� Tyler said the freezing rain in the Forks area was proving a worthy adversary for snowplowers. “It’s building up enough of a glaze on everything that basically, we can’t plow it,� he said. Clallam Bay appeared to avoid much of this most recent wave of wintry weather. Only a few short flurries were seen as of early Thursday afternoon, said Trish Hutson, Clallam County Fire District No. 5 chief.

Border Patrol reports 22 arrests made since Dec. 19

Information on school financial aid, scholarships set Sunday



A citizen of Mexico apprehended at a traffic stop in Port Hadlock and a former gang member arrested in Oak Harbor were among 22 foreign nationals — including nine from India — who were apprehended by Border Patrol agents in the U.S. Border Patrol’s Blaine sector Dec. 19-Jan. 8, according to the agency’s latest compilation of arrests. The Border Patrol arrest report is not a full report of all arrests; it includes incidents selected by the Blaine sector office and does not include arrests that result in ongoing investigations. The Blaine sector includes Oregon, Alaska and the western half of Washington state, though agents are stationed only in Washington state and go to Oregon and Alaska only on “an outreach basis,� Blaine sector spokesman Richard Sinks said Wednesday. The person in Port Hadlock was arrested on New Year’s Day after a Jefferson County sheriff’s deputy had requested backup from the Border Patrol. Also Jan. 1, a Honduran citizen who said he was a former member of the gang MS-13 was arrested after the Border Patrol answered a request for assistance from the Oak Harbor Police Department. The man said he was a member of the gang, which has a strong presence in Los Angeles, before he illegally entered the U.S. MS 13 — Mara Salvatrucha — is a transnational gang that was set up by Sal-

vadoran immigrants in Los Angeles and has a strong presence in Los Angeles, Boston, Houston and Washington, D.C., according to www. and www.MS13gang. All of the arrests in the two weeks of Border Patrol reports resulted in the person, or persons, who was illegally in the U.S. being processed for removal from the country.

Arrests listed in report Here are the incidents: ■Dec. 22: Three citizens of India were apprehended who were hiding in brush near the U.S.-Canada border east of Sumas. ■ Dec. 22: Two citizens of Mexico who crossed illegally into the U.S. from Canada near Blaine were apprehended almost immediately after they crossed the border. ■ Dec. 22: A request for assistance from the Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office near Ferndale resulted in the arrest of a Mexican national. The person had previously been removed from the U.S. and had a prior conviction for possession of a controlled substance. ■ Dec. 24: A remote video surveillance system captured images of a person walking south from the U.S.-Canada border west of the Peach Arch port of entry in Blaine. The person was a Canadian citizen who admitted to entering the U.S. illegally. ■ Dec. 25: A remote-video surveillance system recorded a person walking south from the U.S.-Canada border north of Lynden. The person, a citizen of El Salvador, admitted to just

crossing illegally into the U.S. from Canada. ■Dec. 28: A Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office request for assistance near the Blaine border crossing resulted in the arrest of a Mexican citizen. ■ Jan. 1: The operator of a remote-video surveillance system near Blaine saw a citizen of Mexico crossing into the U.S. from Canada. The person was processed for reinstatement of a prior order of removal. ■ Jan. 2: Two Mexican nationals were arrested during a traffic stop near Bellingham after a Whatcom County sheriff’s deputy made a request for assistance. ■ Jan. 3: A citizen of Costa Rica was arrested after a vehicle stop north of Lynden. The driver, who had a prior conviction for driving under the influence, admitted to illegally being in the U. S. ■ Jan. 4: Border Patrol agents encountered an Indian national near the U.S.-Canada border near Blaine who admitted to recently crossing illegally into the U.S. ■ Jan. 7: Agents who were performing a vehicle stop north of Lynden arrested a Mexican citizen who admitted to illegally being in the U.S. ■ Jan. 8: Remote-video system operators alerted agents that five people had crossed illegally into the U.S. from Canada north of Lynden.

PORT ANGELES — Peninsula College will offer information about federal financial aid and scholarship opportunities during a free seminar for students who plan to attend college and their parents. College Goal Sunday will begin at 1 p.m. Sunday in the Science and Technology Building (Building M) on the Port Angeles campus at 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd. Peninsula College staff members will help students and their families complete the application required to apply for federal financial assistance for higher education — the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA. Students and their families also can attend sessions offered by the College Success Foundation on “Financial Aid 101,� “Scholarships 101� and “The Money Game.� FAFSA is considered to be the gateway to accessing financial aid resources, such as grants, student loans and scholarships.

Federal student loans offer many benefits not typically found in private loans, including low fixed-interest rates, income-based repayment plans, loan forgiveness and deferment options. Students who attend and who register on — the website of a free, scholarship clearinghouse for Washington students — will be eligible to win a college scholarship from the Northwest Education Loan Association, or NELA, which is contributing 40 $500 scholarships this year for students who participate in College Goal Sunday. NELA is a nonprofit guaranty agency that administers the Federal Family Education Loan Program and guarantees the loans against default. College Goal Sunday also is supported by the Lumina Foundation for Education, a private, independent foundation based in Indianapolis. The College Success Foundation is a nonprofit foundation that provides help for low-income students. More information is at

Computerized placement tests to assess strengths, weaknesses PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

Appeals court rules top-two primary OK Another found $800 limit on recall campaign money unconstitutional BY GENE JOHNSON THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SEATTLE — A federal appeals court upheld Washington’s top-two primary system Thursday. In a separate ruling, the court found that the state’s $800 limit on contributions to recall campaigns is likely unconstitutional. Voters adopted the toptwo primary system in 2004 after courts threw out the long-used open primary system. Under the new scheme, the top two finishers in a primary advance to the general election, even if they’re both Democrats or both Republicans. The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the system in 2008

but acknowledged that whether it would continue to pass constitutional muster would depend in part on how the ballots were actually written. The political parties challenged the system again, saying that allowing candidates to identify themselves as Republicans, Democrats or Libertarians on the ballot could confuse voters, who might believe the candidates are the nominee of a party. A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said there’s no evidence such confusion occurred, upholding a decision by U.S. District Judge John C. Coughenour. The system does not violate the parties’ First Amendment rights to free associa-

tion by forcing them to be linked on the ballot with a candidate they don’t like, the panel said. “Once again, the courts have made clear that our toptwo process is legal and is being administered in a clear and thoughtful fashion,� Secretary of State Sam Reed said in a statement. “I would hope the parties will accept the judgment of the courts, including the Supreme Court, and cease their litigation, which costs the taxpayers and the parties precious resources of time and money,� he said. The top-two primary “honors our political tradition in this state of allowing us to vote for our favorite primary candidate for each office, without regard to party preference,� he added. The chairman of the state GOP, Kirby Wilbur, said the party is reviewing the decision.

State Senate now one vote short on gay marriage; half-dozen uncommitted BY MIKE BAKER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OLYMPIA — The state Legislature edged closer Thursday to having enough support to legalize gay marriage as major businesses declared their approval and a conservative Democrat who once opposed same-sex marriage said he will now vote for it. The state Senate is now just one vote shy of having enough backing to approve the bill, with a half-dozen lawmakers remaining uncommitted. Microsoft Corp. is among several prominent businesses that are publicly supporting the measure, with general counsel Brad Smith saying in a blog posting that the bill would “be good for

our business and good for the state’s economy.� “As other states recognize marriage equality, Washington’s employers are at a disadvantage if we cannot offer a similar, inclusive environment to our talented employees, our top recruits and their families,� Smith said. Six other states allow gay marriage. Sen. Jim Kastama of Puyallup announced his decision to support gay marriage in a press conference Thursday, becoming the 24th senator to commit a vote to the measure. The state House is widely expected to have enough support to pass gay marriage, and Gov. Chris Gregoire publicly endorsed the proposal earlier this month. Kastama voted in 1998




for a law defining marriage as between one man and one woman. In 2009, he supported an expansion of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s domestic partnership laws. Kastama said some will likely never forgive him for his support of gay marriage. But he said society has changed and that it is necessary for marriage to evolve to strengthen it as a valued institution. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that is a progression that I think many people have gone through in our society,â&#x20AC;? Kastama said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we have all evolved, and I think this is a culmination of that.â&#x20AC;? Other businesses that declared their support for same-sex marriage include RealNetworks Inc., NIKE Inc. and Vulcan Inc.

Democratic Chairman Dwight Pelz called an appeal likely. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are disappointed that the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals would maintain a system that allows candidates to force associations onto political parties,â&#x20AC;? Pelz said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We maintain that the top-two law is a blow to our political system.â&#x20AC;?

Contributions In a separate ruling, a different appeals court panel ruled that the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s limit on recall campaign contributions likely violates the freespeech rights of donors. The panel unanimously agreed with the decision of U.S. District Judge Robert Bryan in Tacoma, who issued an injunction blocking the state from enforcing the limit pending a trial on its constitutionality.

Washam was headed by a retired Naval officer and political novice named Robin Farris, who accused him of dysfunctional management, wasting public resources and retaliating against his own employees. She failed to collect enough signatures to place the question on last fallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ballot. The libertarian law firm Institute for Justice took up her case, noting that several people would have contributed more if they had been allowed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is just an artificial restraint on the ability of the people to effectuate needed political change,â&#x20AC;? said Bill Maurer, who heads the firmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chapter in Washington state. The case now returns to the federal district court in Tacoma for a trial on whether the limit is constitutional.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Friday/Saturday, January 20-21 PAGE


Farm labor laws in world of their own EDITOR’S NOTE — This is the first part of a two-part series on farm labor. LEGAL FARM LABOR is hard to come by. The resurgence of small farms, particu- Martha M. larly organic Ireland farms, birthed a culture of unpaid internships, low-pay apprenticeships and work-for-food barter arrangements. Such farm helpers are generally not immigrants — documented or undocumented — yet most such arrangements are illegal. Peter and Jane Vanderhoof founded WestWind farm in the Joyce area 10 years ago and always followed the Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms, or WWOOF, pattern of letting people exchange work for visits on the farm. “We gave them room and board,” Jane Vanderhoof said of

the 50 to 60 “WOOFERs” who have interned at WestWind. “Most of them lived in our house with us — they got to live in a beautiful place and learn with us. In a sense, we’re trading [knowledge for help]. So far we’ve had no problems.” Vanderhoof had no clue that what she described as “a very loose arrangement — a lifestyle choice” is probably illegal because it does not appear to meet all six criteria for unpaid interns, nor does it satisfy state minimum wage and workers’ compensation laws. Federal criteria are based on a 1947 Supreme Court case in which labor unions demanded that railroad interns be paid (See criteria at http://tinyurl. com/3x6qtfh). Prior to the Obama administration, the Department of Labor rarely enforced the criteria in farm settings, but unions have again brought the issue forward. WestWind’s intern program has ended, not due to regulatory action, but because the Vanderhoofs are no longer physically able to operate the farm. They are still taking winter produce to market and intend to

continue living in their big farmhouse, but are “researching who will take over operation” of the 55-acre farm, she said. “We hope it will continue.” Solstice Farm in east Jefferson County’s Beaver Valley has the only legal farm intern program in the state, according to Jim Rueff. He and his wife, Linda Davis, founded their lifestyle farm 10 years ago, added a farm-stay bedand-breakfast inn 2½ years ago and started internships two years ago. “State regulations are very picky,” Rueff said. “If you follow the rules, it takes time and money. We’re careful how we proceed.” Their 24-week Washington State University accredited program runs from April to November. Interns attend weekly classes on beekeeping, butchering, birthing and 21 other subjects. “Some learn they don’t like farming,” Rueff said. Solstice is also developing a relationship with Evergreen College. “The benefit is for the intern, not the farm — they’re not free

Peninsula Voices State of Forks In response to the PDN’s front-page Jan. 14 article “What Has Forks Become? Mayor Frets Over Decay Of Behavior In Town,” we do have issues, like all cities do. As Forks transitions from a conservative, bluecollar town to a more liberal one, more crime is to be expected, especially during an economic downturn. Questions arise: Should our city leaders support or oppose our U.S. Border Patrol? What is the criteria to live in the new “Forks housing development”? Was it supported by our community residents? Was there conflict of interest? Are we importing people to fill it? Do we have more putting into the pot than taking out or vice versa? But, to portray Forks as becoming decadent on the front page was wrong. Crime will ebb and flow in all cities and towns, including yours. Nowhere has a greater, more giving core of people than here. They overwhelmingly

supported the building of the new school, which was just completed. Our children’s programs have more volunteers than we can count, and our businesses are more than gracious in donating. In conclusion, everybody lives here for a reason, some because they love the type of people and closeknit community, others just because they can find work here. The key is that we have strong, giving, supportive families, regardless of ethnicity. Rick Gale, Forks commissioners’ meeting along with three other Port commissioner people.

or cheap labor,” Rueff said. “I doubt if we get four hours work out of a day, but these people are a lot of fun to have around, and they do help.” Solstice is looking for three interns for the upcoming season. “They have to be the right fit,” he said. “It’s complicated selecting interns.” Most are college graduates in their late 20s to mid 30s “who want to try something different,” he said. Having “these kids” around is good for Rueff and Davis, who are “on Medicare,” he added. Solstice breaks even and pays the mortgage. “We’re doing better than average for a small farm,” said Rueff, “but this is not our sole source of income.” Other local, small-acreage farmers who have relied on interns and bartering are wary of drawing attention to their operations, although they haven’t heard of anyone actually being prosecuted locally. Some could become legal if the state Legislature resurrects a 2010 farm intern pilot program and expands it statewide.

That program, which expired Dec. 31, allowed six small farms in Skagit and San Juan counties to host unpaid interns if the farms paid for workers’ compensation coverage and offered an educational curriculum. However, such an exemption would not address farm-shares, under which people contract to work in exchange for food. “People who are struggling so much appreciate being able to come and trade for food,” one 20-year Agnew-area farmer said. “We live in a world that’s bizarre.” PART II, on Feb. 3: An exploration of the high cost of staying legal when farmers hire workers. ________ Martha M.

by the second commissioner as final candidates. It was decided that since three were the same, one was eliminated. I understand that they needed to do this by certain rules, but the bottom line is that it turned out to be a waste of 11 applicants’ time and lots of paper. To no one’s surprise, Paul McHugh was appointed and sworn in on Jan. 9. I guess the “Good Old Boys” win again. C’est la vie. Jean Janis, Sequim

Gay marriage I want to go on the record in praise of 24th District state legislators Kevin Van De Wege and Steve Tharinger — both from Clallam County — for their support of the gay marriage bill and disappointment in 24th District state Sen. Jim Hargrove of Hoquam in not supporting his Democratic governor or the current Democratic candidate or the party platform on the subject. I am blessed in knowing many gay and lesbian couples who are in loving rela-

tionships that have lasted for decades. The Chicken Littles who tell us the sky will fall if this gay marriage bill passes remind me of some people I encountered when I was in high school in Indiana (in a minor seminary). At that time, laws were on the books in many states outlawing marriages between blacks and whites. If those laws were repealed, I was told, babies would be born of such marriages that would have zebra-type stripes. These people even said that, according to the Bible, blacks were cursed by God after the flood as descendants of one of Noah’s sons. Nonsense then, just as the unfounded lies about the negative impact of a gay marriage bill are nonsense today. Yes, Democrats are different. They actually pass laws supporting equal rights. Keep up the good work for equality, Van De Wege and Tharinger. Wake up, Hargrove. Jim Dries, Sequim

Bipolar disorder puts me on the ropes BY ROSE DAILEY


IT’S 2:30 A.M., and I can’t sleep. I can’t sleep because thoughts keep racing through my head. We’ve all been there, I’m sure. The more you try to sleep, the more Dailey the thoughts come and keep you from it. I spend a lot of my sleepless nights going over my past 48 years and thinking of things I wish I would have done differently. I’m sure we’ve all been there,

too. I’ve made some terrible, stupid mistakes that cannot be undone. I haven’t killed anyone or stolen money, I’m not a drug dealer, and I try to be a loyal, caring person to those I love. My big problem is being bipolar, or manic depressive, as it’s also known. Because of this condition, I have made hasty choices, usually when I am backed into a corner, so to speak. I’ve quit several jobs, just walked out — not without good cause, mind you, but unprofessional just the same. Even when I’ve been forthright with my employers about














this illness, I’ve been pushed to the extreme. At no time was this disability of mine taken into any kind of serious consideration. Many people have trouble seeing mental illness for what it is — a disability — if someone doesn’t limp, stutter or convulse, Being bipolar is almost like having an out-of-body experience. Sometimes you don’t realize you snapped at somebody when you just did. I don’t want special treatment, just consideration. Instead of yelling at me and demanding results, ask how I’m feeling. Talk to me without behaving like I purposefully make errors. I will bend over backward to make my employer happy, and all I want is to do a wonderful job

and to be liked. I’m a somewhat intelligent woman, but if I miss my medication or get terribly stressed out, I get anxious and sometimes confused, kind of like a diabetic getting confused and irritable when sugar levels are off. But sometimes my disability can get the better of me even when I am on my medication. I am currently employed parttime. I have been promised more hours for months now, but have yet to receive them. This has put me in the position of having to look elsewhere for work. In the past two weeks, I’ve had two job interviews and I really appreciate the chance, even though I was turned down

for both positions. I realize that a lot of the reason is because of my disability, because I have quit jobs, because employers can say anything they want and their word is always taken for gold over the employee. I don’t miss excessive amounts of work. My paperwork is complete and turned in on time, and I brought cookies into the office at Christmas. Point is, I’m not a bad person. I am trying to make it in this world like everyone else. I deserve a fair shake. ________ Rose Dailey, 48, is a Port Angeles resident.

Bush 41 and Mitt: One of a kind WATCHING MITT ROMNEY in the Myrtle Beach debate Monday gave me acid flashbacks to Poppy Bush. Maybe it was when Mit- Maureen tens decorously Dowd noted, in front of the raucous, bloodthirsty South Carolina crowd: “When I get invited, I’m delighted to be able to go hunting.” Maybe it was Romney sounding all 19th century recounting his sharp right turn on abortion as governor of Massachusetts: “I penned an op-ed in The Boston Globe and said I am pro-life.” Maybe it was when Rick Santorum pushed the front-runner to justify an attack ad financed by his “super PAC” and Romney gazed at Santorum the way a CEO regards an impudent mailroom clerk. “We have plenty of time,” Mitt instructed him with a tight smile, looking as though he wanted to give him a copy of Tiffany’s Table Manners for Teenagers. “I’ll get there. I’ll do it in the order I want to.” Mitt would probably be asking for “a splash” more coffee at a truck stop if he drank coffee. Poppy is an Episcopalian East Coast patrician, and Mitt is a Mormon Midwest patrician; their fathers were both archetypal moderate Republicans. Poppy drinks martinis; Mitt drinks chocolate milk and Coke Zero. But 41 and the man he endorsed to be 45 share the geewhiz language, hokey humor, awkward stage presence, sense of entitlement and noblesse oblige, need to break away from powerful patriarchs and prove themselves in business, gentlemanly demeanor that masks surprisingly sharp elbows, and the willingness to make whiplash switches from blue-blooded positions to red-state ones, leaving everyone to wonder: “Who is this guy at his core?” It’s easy to picture Poppy and

Mitt sitting in a wood-paneled room in a country club, chatting about tennis, Marquess of Queensberry rules and how they’re above being gutter fighters like the Clintons (except when they aren’t). Poppy was compared by some to Chatsworth Osborne Jr., the rich kid on “Dobie Gillis,” and Mitt was compared by some to Thurston Howell III, the millionaire on “Gilligan’s Island.” Twenty-four years ago, David Letterman did a “Top Ten Ways to Make George Bush More Exciting.” (“Shorter speeches, tighter pants.”) Last year, Romney went on Letterman’s show to read “Things You Don’t Know About Mitt Romney,” including: “I’m the guy in the photo that comes with your picture frame.” Their political philosophies were not shaped by a passion for ideas as much as a desire to serve and an ambition to climb higher than their revered fathers. Pragmatism trumps ideology; survival trumps conviction. Both men, to the manner born in Greenwich and Bloomfield Hills, adapted uncomfortably to the fundamentalist tent-meeting mood of the modern GOP, knowing their futures depended on Faustian deals with the right. Poppy went from denouncing “voodoo economics” to embracing it as Reagan’s vice president. “He understands,” a friend explained, “that you have to do politically prudent things to get in a position to do what’s right.” Worried that a platform of mere civic duty would not suffice to stir the emotions of voters, Poppy and Mitt waved the flag and demonized opponents with ethnic names as less American. Bush senior toured a flag factory and said the Pledge of Allegiance at every campaign stop; Romney parses patriotic songs and his advisers refer to Mormonism as “the most American of religions.” Just as the Ivy League Poppy mocked Michael Dukakis for being a member of the “Harvard boutique,” so Harvard grad Romney makes fun of President Obama as an elitist from “the Harvard faculty lounge.” It’s like watching little boys in

Topsiders act all gangsta. Bush 41 went from supporting Planned Parenthood to declaring at his first debate with Dukakis that abortion was a crime that might need penalties. Romney went from being a passionate supporter of abortion rights who appeared at a fundraiser for Planned Parenthood and endorsed the legalization of RU-486 to being “firmly pro-life.” What the late Republican Sen. Mark Hatfield said of the resentment-stoking, red-meat-throwing H.W. in 1988 could apply to Romney now: “If his father were alive, I’m sure his father would see it as a shocking transformation.” Mitt and Poppy sacrificed authenticity but never inspired Reaganesque passion. When Romney went in and out of his hotel here this week, the Charleston Place, he passed a blue El Dorado Cadillac in the parking lot with a new bumper sticker reading: “Reagan for President. On Fox News on Tuesday, Sen. Lindsey Graham, a Republican from South Carolina, said that if Romney wants a big victory here Saturday, he will have to “let his hair down a little bit” and show his heart. (Does anybody really want to see that?) Many conservatives here don’t trust Romney to stay conservative if he becomes president. What if he began to think it’s his civic duty to cut the deficit by raising taxes, like Poppy? What if he flips back from his flops? Who are these guys at their core? ________ Maureen Dowd is a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist for The New York Times. Her column appears in the PDN every Friday. Contact Dowd via http://

Obama and Bank of America, arm in arm WELL, ISN’T THIS rich? And I do mean rich. President Obama, man of the people, will Michelle deliver his Malkin presidential nomination acceptance speech at the Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C. — so that Democratic Party fundraisers can reward big donors with skyboxes and other lavish perks. As usual, the White House and its allies are trying to camouflage naked partisan moneygrubbing in populist garb. “I think this would be a great opportunity to have tens of thousands of North Carolinians and others outside of the state to see and participate in the convention process,” one North Carolina Democratic Party flack told the Charlotte Observer. But it’s the heavyweight contributors, not the hoi polloi, to whom convention organizers are catering as they struggle to raise some $37 million to cover the coronation celebration’s costs. The self-proclaimed Party of the 99 Percent is reportedly busy creating special-access VIP packages for the 1 percent — under the illusion of throwing open its doors to the masses. DNC officials refuse to disclose fundraising updates until after the convention, even as they champion their own “openness and accessibility.” And no doubt, Obama will use his stadium-size pulpit to “stand

up” to the very same “fat cats” who’ll be watching him while sipping Courvoisier in their DNCappointed luxury seats. Such is the audacity of progressive cognitive dissonance. Despite the DNC’s vaunted promise to ban business donations and first lady Michelle Obama’s faux-folksy public relations campaign for a “people’s convention,” Bank of America (headquartered in North Carolina and Charlotte’s largest corporate presence) will be front and center at the festivities. No surprise. The Democrats and Bank of America have maintained a long, lucrative relationship as reciprocal bailout buddies. During the 2010 midterm elections, former DNC chairman and ex-Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine secured a $15 million revolving line of credit at B of A and then finagled another $17 million loan from the taxpayer-bailed-out bank. According to Federal Election Commission records, B of A accepted as collateral the DNC’s donor mailing list. Yep, its donor mailing list for $32 million in loans. As investigative reporter Richard Pollock asked at the time: “What message does a largely unsecured $32 million credit line for the Democratic Party send to thousands of cash-starved small businesses across the nation who can’t secure any credit even with tangible assets?” Message: crony business as usual. Bank of America is to sweetheart loans and Democratic Party payoffs as Paula Deen is to sugar and bacon grease: ■ The massively troubled bank raked in a middle-of-the-

night, taxpayer-funded $45 billion banking bailout in 2008 and an estimated $931 billion in secret federal emergency loans. ■ In 2008, B of A’s political action committee gave its biggest contributions to Barack Obama totaling $421,000. ■ After purchasing junk mortgage company Countrywide, B of A agreed to pay $50 million in restitution payments for Countrywide subprime loan fraudster and Democratic fat cat Angelo Mozilo and one of his underlings. ■ B of A forked over payoffs to self-declared bank terrorist outfit NACA (the taxpayer-subsidized Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America). ■ B of A also capitulated to a Jesse Jackson shakedown. And it forked over at least $2 million to the ACORN Housing Corporation — which has had a long history of fraud and abuse that goes back decades. ■ The financial giant teamed up with the open-borders lobby (including newly appointed Domestic Policy Council chief Cecilia Munoz’s former employer, the National Council of La Raza) to offer illegal alien home loans. No word yet on whether Obama’s Greek columns from the 2008 convention will make a return appearance this fall. But if they do, they may yet be emblazoned with a new redwhite-and-blue Bank of Democratic Party America logo. Optics be damned. The coffers must be filled. ________ Michelle Malkin’s nationally syndicated column appears in the PDN every Friday. Email:







Gregoire declares state of emergency Ice storm kills 1, knocks out power to 100,000 THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SEATTLE — Gov. Chris Gregoire declared a state of emergency statewide because of an ice storm in many parts of Western Washington that brought down trees and knocked out power for about 100,000 homes while sending cars and trucks spinning out of control. A falling tree killed a man in his 60s who was backing an all-terrain vehicle out of a shed Thursday morning in his backyard in a wooded area near Issaquah, said King County Sheriff’s Sgt. Cindi West. “It looks like the weight of ice on the branches caused the tree to fall,” West said. The deputies who responded had to pull back

because of all the branches and trees falling around them, she said. The ATV rider died at the scene in the first fatality of the storm.

storm warning for the Seattle area and Southwest Washington. “It’s a very dangerous situation,” with a major impact on roads, said Brad Colman, the meteorologist in charge of the Weather Service office in Seattle. “We’re expecting a significant impact on power.”

Workers hurt State of emergency The state of emergency declaration is “purely a precautionary move,” said Karina Shagren, spokeswoman for the Governor’s Office. “At this point, we have not received any requests from cities or counties for state help, but we know weather conditions are changing rapidly, so we want to be prepared,” she said. The National Weather Service used the Emergency Alert System to break into Thursday morning broadcasts with an ice

Two state Transportation Department workers have been injured in the storm. A state Transportation Department worker was injured in a crash on Interstate 405 near Lynnwood. The State Patrol said 36-year-old Steve D. Cloud of Tacoma was out of his Transportation truck checking on a driver who crashed into a barrier when another car smashed into the wreck. The force of the crash pushed the first car into him. Cloud is in satisfactory

condition at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with broken bones, said spokeswoman Susan Gregg-Hanson. The driver of the first car was treated at the scene, and the driver of the second car was not injured, the patrol said. Another worker was hurt by a falling tree branch on state Highway 18 on Wednesday night. Transportation spokeswoman Jamie Holter said freezing rain and ice pellets have caused numerous wrecks in the Seattle area. The glaze measured a quarter- to one-half inch, said meteorologist Jeff Michalski. The last widespread snow in the Seattle area was December 1996, he said. Ice closed SeattleTacoma International Airport, but it reopened two of its three runways by late

morning, said spokesman Perry Cooper. He hoped operations could return to normal by late afternoon, but that depended on how airlines handled rebookings for delays and cancellations. The Transportation Department closed Highway 18 near Issaquah because of falling trees. Cars went spinning into ditches on many roadways. A tractor-trailer that slid off Interstate 5 shortly after midnight blocked the northbound land and two of the southbound lanes into the morning commute. Falling trees and tree limbs also took out power lines.

Outages Puget Sound Energy reported 90,000 outages at 9 a.m. Thursday after crews had already brought 46,000 customers back online since Wednesday in the area south of Seattle and around

Tacoma and Olympia. Tacoma Power spokesman Randy Stearns said it had 24,000 customers out of service because of a downed transmission line. Pierce County Emergency Management said it received more than 90 calls for downed trees that blocked roadways.

Ice storm warning The ice storm warning covers Seattle, Tacoma, Bremerton, the east Puget Sound lowlands, Olympia, the lower Chehalis Valley and central coast, including Hoquiam. In Olympia, more than a foot of snow was still on the ground but now covered by a sheet of ice as freezing rain fell Wednesday morning. Many residential roads weren’t plowed, and large tree limbs were brought down by heavy snow and ice on several roads and yards.

A skier negotiates a Hurricane Ridge slope.




A LAND OF PLENTY Snow ❄ Activities ❄ Charm

Hurricane Ridge has it all . . . just 45 minutes from town BY DIANE URBANI


Snowshoeing is one of the activities available at Hurricane Ridge. Heather, Tyler and Jared Moravec of Bainbridge Island took advantage of the opportunity.



ALSO . . . ■ How to get to Hurricane Ridge and what to do once you get there/B3

OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — You can spend, oh, $400 to take your family or friends skiing at Stevens Pass in the Cascades east of Seattle, or you can have a quintessential Olympic Peninsula winter experience right here at home. “We have good snow, bad snow, steep stuff, mellow stuff,” said Craig Hofer, manager of the Hurricane Ridge Ski & Snowboard Area, 17 miles up from Port Angeles. There’s a bunny hill, an intermediate hill and, if you’re up for it, some 800 feet of vertical gain — all draped in sparkling white. The Ridge opened for downhill skiing Monday — about two weeks later than last season’s, said Hofer, who’s worked on the Ridge since the winter of 1975’76. This Saturday and Sunday, the ski area will be operating from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Hurricane Ridge Ski School is scheduled to open Jan. 28. “We skied on Monday on 18 inches of Idaho-Montana-type powder,” reported Joe Gladfelter, a longtime volunteer with the


Hurricane Ridge Winter Sports Club.

A great value To him, this particular mountain is one great value. The snow and the terrain are spectacular, and they’re only about 45 minutes from town. An adult beginner can ski all day on the bunny rope-tow for $12 or do both the bunny and intermediate hills for $24. When the T-shaped overhead Poma lift opens, skiers and boarders can grab hold of it or the rope tows for a total of $32



for an all-day pass. If you’re in fifth grade, you get the best deal: free skiing all season. The ski area’s program, aimed at attracting kids with parents and siblings in tow, requires the fifth-grader to show proof in the form of a report card, school identification card or teacher’s note on school letterhead. Ridge prices are in high contrast, predictably, with the $62 per adult, plus gasoline for the 350-mile round trip from Port Angeles. Of course, resorts like Stevens

have the big chair lifts and lots of amenities, while none of the above exists at the 54-year-old Hurricane Ridge Ski & Snowboard Area. But Gladfelter, who likes to go up with his wife, Becky, and sons, Jack, 7, and Jason, 8, believes the Ridge has its own kind of charm.

‘Sense of community’ “There’s a sense of community,” since you’re likely to find yourself skiing beside somebody you know. TURN

Ridge: Busy day might see 200 on skis, boards CONTINUED FROM B1 Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a small place with big snow â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 400 inches annually â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get overrun by resort-scale crowds. Hofer estimated that on a busy day, about 200 people ski or board the Ridge. The Hurricane Ridge Winter Sports Club website, www.HurricaneRidge. com, has prices, abundant details and a link to the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Facebook page. There, fans repeat the unofficial slogan: â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you can ski Hurricane Ridge, you can ski anywhere!â&#x20AC;? The Gladfeltersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; boys have had a good time proving that.

Hurricane Ridge, when you get down to it, has what you need to ski â&#x20AC;&#x201D; equipment rentals available in the lodge, the two rope tows and, after some more snow falls, the Poma lift.

Her actual birthdate is unknown, but that date was assigned to her after being left as an infant on the steps of City Hall in Daegu, South Korea. Her first few months were spent in an orphanage and a foster home before we adopted her, but her records don’t reveal much more than that. We know nothing about her biological mother or father. We were advised by the adoption agency to make her arrival at SeattleTacoma International Airport as low-key as possible. No big crowds. No flashing cameras. But hearts cannot remain low-key during moments like that. She was 8 months old, with a mass of black hair askew and dark brown eyes bursting with life. She held out her arms to us while looking down to give her new big brother a big smile. It’s a great way to have a baby. What do you do after such a glorious moment? We went shopping at Southcenter Mall in Seattle. While meandering through the stores and joyfully passing our new daughter back and forth, a

in the pro-life side of the debate, and I am for two basic reasons: First, I am certain that life begins at the moment of conception. I paid attention one day in high school long enough to know the basics about human reproduction. Males produce sperm. Females have an egg. When sperm meets egg, life is conceived. To avoid conception, don’t let sperm meet egg. Pretty basic. The Bible is a little more eloquent and confirms God’s presence at the conception of life. Psalms 139:13 is the verse most often quoted to confirm this truth: “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.” God, the Divine Knitter of DNA. Amazing. But the prophet Jeremiah goes even a step further, or, more accurately, a step sooner.

Pictures speak Second, I am also firmly entrenched in the pro-life side of the debate because of pictures. I have had the joy of seeing my unborn child’s picture on an ultrasound, and I have grieved looking at the photographs of aborted children. The old adage “a picture can say a thousand words” is certainly true in both cases. Early in the pregnancy of our youngest son 30 years ago, we were advised by our doctor to have an abortion. Although there were serious risks to consider, we chose life. But for that life to continue, our son would need several interuterine blood transfusions to survive. Cindy and I watched the ultrasound screen with fas-

Casual Environment, Serious Faith


He quotes God as saying, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations” (Jeremiah 1:5, emphasis added). Here it is plain that not only did God form the prophet in his mother’s womb but that even prior to formation, God knew him. God had a life and purpose planned for him. And me. And you. And every child conceived. By the way, did you know that many Koreans count age differently than we do by adding a year to include the gestation time spent in the mother’s womb? I think that is very interesting.

cination and a degree of angst as the doctor penetrated her womb with an incredibly long needle to give our unborn son enough good blood to prolong his life in her womb. Extreme caution and skill were necessary to poke the little guy in just the right spot. He didn’t like it, but each of the three transfusions bought him another two weeks of womb time. Like many people, his baby album includes his ultrasound picture. On the other hand, looking at actual pictures of aborted babies and pieces of babies is a very nauseating experience. But it’s a necessary nausea. Abortion debates are not about an abstract ideology; they are about a deadly and grisly reality. The yet-to-be-born and the never-to-be-born are unable to speak for themselves, so at least grant them the courtesy of letting their pictures speak for them. I urge you to seriously contemplate the sanctity of human life this Sunday. And if you are a man or a woman facing tough choices due to an unplanned or unwanted pregnancy, look very carefully at all the choices. And among those choices, please know that there are about 1.3 million couples in the United States wanting to adopt. Adoption is one of the good choices.

Legislative prayer AUGUSTA, Maine — Top Maine lawmakers, including Gov. Paul LePage, have formed the Maine Legislative Prayer Caucus. The caucus is affiliated with Pray USA, an initiative of the Congressional Prayer Caucus Foundation Inc., which seeks to “preserve the Judeo-Christian heritage of our nation and protect American religious liberty.” More than 150 people, including about 50 legislators — mostly Republicans and a few Democrats—participated in a ceremony Tuesday to announce that Maine is the sixth state to formalize a legislative prayer group. Maine legislators have informally gathered to pray since the 1940s. The nonpartisan prayer caucus meets once a week and does not discuss policy or bills.

Singer fined WARSAW, Poland — A Polish court slapped a fine on a popular singer who bad-mouthed the Bible — the latest episode in which authorities grapple with religious defamation in a traditionally Roman Catholic country that is growing increasingly secular. Dorota Rabczewska, a singer who uses the stage name Doda, said in a 2009 interview that she doubted the Bible “because it’s hard to believe in something that was written by someone drunk on wine and smoking some herbs.” A Warsaw court ordered her Monday to pay a fine of 5,000 zlotys ($1,450) for offending religious feelings.

Murdoch empire to pay Law, others for hacking BY JILL LAWLESS THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LONDON — Rupert Murdoch’s media empire apologized and agreed to cash payouts Thursday to 37 people — including a movie star, a soccer player, a top British politician and the son of a serial killer — who were harassed and phone-hacked by his tabloid press. The four — Jude Law, Ashley Cole, John Prescott and Chris Shipman — were among three dozen victims who received financial damages from Murdoch’s British newspaper company for illegal eavesdropping and other intrusions, including email snooping. Lawyers for the claimants said the settlements vindicated their accusation that senior Murdoch executives had long known about the scale of illegal phone hacking and had tried to cover it up. Financial details of 15 of the payouts, totaling more than about $1 million, were made public at a court hearing Thursday. The amounts generally

ran into the tens of thousands of pounds — although Law received about $200,000, plus legal costs, to settle claims against the now-shuttered News of the World tabloid and its sister tabloid, The Sun. Law was one of 60 people who have sued Murdoch’s News Group Newspapers, claiming their mobile phone voice mails were hacked. Others whose settlements were announced Thursday at London’s High Court included former government ministers Chris Bryant and Tessa Jowell, rugby player Gavin Henson, Princess Diana’s former lover James Hewitt, singer Dannii Minogue and Sara Payne, the mother of a murdered girl. It was the largest group of settlements announced yet in the long-running hacking scandal, which has shaken Murdoch’s global empire, spurred the resignations of several of his top executives and reverberated through Britain’s political, police and media elite. Law, the star of “Sherlock Holmes” and “The Talented Mr. Ripley,” said he

$ Briefly . . . Verizon adds 3G cell tower to PT service

The slew of settlements is one consequence of the revelations of phone hacking and other illegal tactics at the News of the World, where journalists routinely intercepted voice mails of those in the public eye in a relentless search for scoops. Murdoch closed the 168-year-old paper in July amid a wave of public revulsion over its hacking of the voice mails of missing 13-year-old Milly Dowler, who was later found murdered. More than a dozen exMurdoch employees have been arrested by police investigating phone hacking and bribery. British politicians and police have also been ensnared in the scandal, which exposed the cozy relationship between senior officers, top lawmakers and Murdoch newspaper executives. A government-commissioned inquiry set up in the wake of the scandal is currently investigating the ethics of Britain’s media and its links to police and politicians.

was “truly appalled” at the scale of surveillance and privacy invasion that his case had exposed. “No aspect of my private life was safe from intrusion by News Group Newspapers, including the lives of my children and the people who work for me,” he said in a statement. “It was not just that my phone messages were listened to. News Group also paid people to watch me and my house for days at a time and to follow me and those close to me, both in this country and abroad.”

Jude Law case details News Group Newspapers admitted that 16 articles about Law published in the News of the World between 2003 and 2006 had been obtained by phone hacking and that the actor had also been placed under “repeated and sustained physical surveillance.” The company also admitted that articles in The Sun had misused Law’s private information — although it didn’t go so far as to admit hacking by that paper.

Workers and investors wary over Kodak bankruptcy reorganization THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — The ripple effect from Eastman Kodak Co.’s bankruptcy reorganization extends in many directions: Employees brace again for layoffs, retirees fret over health care coverage, and the photography icon’s biggest debtors and stakeholders — from movie studios and big-box retailers to CEO Antonio Perez — are preparing for a sharp sting in their pocketbooks. Rochester Mayor Tom Richards described Thursday’s Chapter 11 filing as more of a psychological blow than an economic jolt to the city, where Kodak has been the engine of local commerce for 132 years. Its payroll in the medium-sized city along Lake Ontario has slipped below 7,000 from a peak of

60,400 in 1983. “We have a broaderbased economy which is no longer dependent on one industry and one company,” Richards said. “We’re better off for it. Not what I wish this would happen, but it has happened and we’re just going to need to deal with it.” Unable to keep pace with a lightning shift from film to digital technology over the past decade, Kodak said it has secured $950 million in financing from Citigroup Inc. and expects to be able to operate its business during bankruptcy reorganization and pay employees. The long-awaited move to seek protection from its creditors is “a necessary step and the right thing to do for the future of Kodak,” Perez said. One strength Kodak can

take into a restructuring effort is its powerful brand name, said Eli Lehrer, who heads the nonprofit Heartland Institute’s Center on Finance, Insurance and Real Estate in Washington, D.C. However, “that doesn’t necessarily translate to people keeping their jobs or stockholders keeping anything,” Lehrer added. Kodak and its board are being advised by Lazard, FTI Consulting Inc. and Sullivan & Cromwell LLP. Dominic DiNapoli, vice chairman of FTI Consulting, will serve as chief restructuring officer. Kodak expects to complete its U.S.-based restructuring during 2013. On its website, Kodak assured customers that the nearly $1 billion in debtorin-possession financing would be sufficient to pay

vendors, suppliers and other business partners in full for goods and services going forward. The bankruptcy filing in the Southern District of New York does not involve Kodak’s international operations. Veteran employees say they’re even more scared than usual that the latest crisis could sink careers that somehow dodged so many cutbacks. And Kodak’s 25,000 retirees in Rochester fear that already-diminished health benefits could disappear altogether. “Because it’s unfunded and discretionary. Kodak can actually say tomorrow that we’re going to drop health care,” said Bob Volpe, who runs a Kodak retiree association with 3,000 members.

Megaupload shuttered; 4 executives arrested THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

McLEAN, Va. — One of the world’s largest file-sharing sites was shut down Thursday, and its founder and several company executives were charged with violating piracy laws, federal prosecutors said. An indictment accuses of costing copyright holders more than $500 million in lost revenue from pirated films and other content. The indictment was unsealed one day after websites including Wikipedia and Craigslist shut down in protest of two congressional proposals intended to thwart online piracy. The Justice Department said in a statement that Kim Dotcom, formerly known as Kim Schmitz, and three others were arrested Thursday in New Zealand at the request of U.S. officials. Megaupload was unique not only because of its massive size and the volume of downloaded content, but

also because it had highprofile support from celebrities, musicians and other content producers who are most often the victims of copyright infringement and piracy. Before the site was taken down, it posted a statement saying allegations that it facilitated massive breaches of copyright laws were “grotesquely overblown.” Megaupload is considered a “cyberlocker,” in which users can upload and transfer files that are too large to send by email. The Motion Picture Association of America estimated that the vast majority of content being shared on Megaupload was in violation of copyright laws. The website allowed users to download films, TV shows, games, music and other content for free but made money by charging subscriptions to people who wanted access to faster download speeds or extra content.

WASHINGTON — The economy is off to a fast start in 2012. The outlook for hiring is improving now that unemployment benefit applications are near a four-year low. Inflation is tame, business travel is rising and the depressed housing market is showing signs of improvement after three dismal years. That’s the picture shaped by a flurry of data Thursday. And it follows other reports showing the economy started the year with vitality. Companies are hiring more workers, consumer confidence is up, factories are cranking out more goods, and bank lending is on the rise. Economists are optimistic. But they caution that it is too early to say the recovery is accelerating. Thursday’s reports were encouraging: ■ Fewer people sought unemployment benefits last week than at any time in nearly four years, the Labor Department said Thursday. Applications last week totaled just 352,000 after

the biggest seasonally adjusted drop in more than six years. The four-week average, which smooths out fluctuations, dropped to 379,000, the second-lowest such figure in more than three years. When weekly applications fall consistently below 375,000, it usually signals that hiring is strong enough to push down the unemployment rate. ■ Manufacturing expanded in the Northeast in January, according to surveys by the Federal Reserve banks of New York and Philadelphia. That follows a report from the Fed that said factory output across the country surged in December by the most in a year. ■ Inflation appears to be peaking after rising steeply last year. Consumer prices were unchanged in December, in part because gas is cheaper. Lower inflation gives consumers more spending power and allows the Fed more leeway to keep interest rates low. ■ Union Pacific Corp., the nation’s largest rail operator, says it transported more cars, oil, industrial parts and chemicals in the final quarter of last year. CEO Jim Young predicted “slow but steady economic growth in 2012.”

ready for a growing public art piece along the fence of The Landing mall. The panels of marine species produced by the students are auctioned for sponsorship at the fundraising event in February. Previous years’ artistic contributions included painted depictions of fish, marine mammals, invertebrates and other species common to the Strait of Juan de Fuca. This artwork is displayed on the fence of The Landing mall with a goal to cover the chain-link fence in its entirety with 20,000 fish. The Feiro Marine Life Center is open weekends for visitors from noon to 4 p.m. Admission is free during the winter months. Donations are accepted.

Project begins to send valentines Briefly . . . dinner to injured, ill Marines until Feb. 1 Free set Thursday PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — Drennan-Ford Funeral Home and Crematory has started its second annual “Operation Valentine” collection program. “Operation Valentine” is a project that allows children, students, scout troups, teachers, parents and anyone in the community to create a handmade valentine card to be delivered to a Marine who has been injured or has become ill while serving in combat zones.

Last year, more than 1,100 valentines were collected in Clallam County. Drennan-Ford currently has the support of Roosevelt Middle School, Hamilton Elementary School, Dry Creek Elementary School, Jefferson Elementary School and Franklin Elementary School, all in Port Angeles; Greywolf Elementary School and Sequim Middle School in Sequim; and Forks Elementary School. The schoolchildren in many of these schools’

classes will be making their own special valentines. Valentines can include words of encouragement, get-well sentiments, thankyous for serving our country, etc.

No envelopes needed Envelopes are not necessary. As these servicepeople are confined to hospitals and care facilities, it is requested that glitter not be used in the decorating of the cards.

It is also requested that a return response from the veteran not be requested as the nature of their injury or illness may preclude them from responding. These valentines may be brought to the DrennanFord Funeral Home and Crematory office at 260 Monroe Road in Port Angeles from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays through Feb. 1.

Members of the Olympic Kiwanis Club visit Dry Creek Elementary School staff to say thank you for their hard work.

Dry Creek staff thanked for hard work PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — Members of the Olympic Kiwanis Club recently visited Dry Creek Elementary School to bring a special message to staffers: “We appreciate you and the work that you do.”

The visit was the first of the club’s Teacher Appreciation presentations, which members plan to take monthly to other Port Angeles schools. “We want the teachers, paraeducators and staff at our schools to know that we

understand how hard they work and how valuable their work is,” said club President Geri Zanon. Zanon told the staff that in these difficult times, while it can seem like there is less and less for school staff to work with, there doesn’t

seem to be a shortage of criticism of what they are doing with what they do have. The club, she said, wanted to be a voice of support on behalf of those who appreciate the time, effort and caring that teaching

staff show every day. “You are giving our children more than intellectual skills,” Zanon said. “You are also teaching them character, how to set goals and achieve them, how to prepare for life.” The Kiwanians gave the

staff a plant, donated by Gross’s Nursery, along with a thank-you poster and some homemade baked goods. Kiwanians participating in the presentation included Carla Sue, Nancy Martin, Janet Williams, Dave and Gail Murphy.

Ocean’s infection by plastic topic Thursday PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — Sea captain and environmental activist Charles Moore will discuss “The Great Infection of the Sea,” detailed in his new book, Plastic Ocean, at an event Thursday. Moore will speak at The Landing mall’s upstairs conference room, 115 E. Railroad Ave., at 6:30 p.m. A $5 donation is requested. In the summer of 1997, Moore set sail from Honolulu with the sole intention

of returning home after competing in a trans-Pacific race. To get to California, he and his crew took a shortcut through the seldom-traversed North Pacific Subtropical Gyre, a vast “oceanic desert” where winds are slack and sailing ships languish. There, Moore realized his catamaran was surrounded by a “plastic soup.” He had stumbled upon the largest garbage dump on the planet — the Great Pacific Garbage Patch — a

spiral nebula where plastic outweighed zooplankton, the ocean’s food base, by a factor of six to one. In this presentation, Moore will discuss these observations, what they mean to our planet and his book Plastic Ocean. This event is sponsored by the Sierra Club North Olympic Group with additional sponsorship from the Coastal Watershed Institute, the Olympic Peninsula Surfrider Chapter and the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary.

Tough weekend for river fishing ANGLERS HAVE TO ask themselves a question this weekend. How much do I really need a Matt steelhead? If it’s enough Schubert to risk your life, rig and drift boat, then have at it, hoss. Otherwise, Bob Aunspach of Swain’s General Store (360-4522357) in Port Angeles has some advice for you: “Stay home and watch some playoff football.” As much as it pains me to say it, you might have a better time watching godless New England quarterback Tom Brady than drifting the rivers of the West End this weekend. It’s either going to be cold or terribly wet. It could even be both. The weatherman doesn’t seem to know these days. If the latter is the case, expect rivers to be blown out in epic proportions. If it’s the former, than the rivers will be in decent shape . . . it’s just your will to live that might take a hit. “Fishing in the snow is fun, it’s really neat. It’s pretty as can be, but boy it’s pretty chilly out there,” Bob Gooding of Olympic Sporting Goods (360-374-6330) in Forks said. “It’s not a lot of fun to be sitting out there freezing your butt off. “More than anything, you can’t tie a knot because your hands are freezing. If the wind is blowing at all, it’s just unbearably cold. If you are catching a fish a minute, it isn’t fun.” All of that being said, there should be plenty of steelhead around. Snider Creek broodstock have been entering the Sol Duc River the past few weeks, and now is about the time that the native population begins to grow throughout the West End. That includes the Hoh and Calawah rivers as well. The Bogachiel River was beginning to tail off before Mother Nature got all blustery, but there’s still likely a fair number of hatchery fish swimming around that stream as well. As long as things don’t get blown out — a distinct possibility — any of those rivers would certainly be fishable this weekend. “If it warms up and rains, [the rivers] aren’t going to come up a couple of feet, they are going to come up 20 feet in two hours,” Gooding said.

Saltwater still Marine Area 9 (Admiralty Inlet) officially opened to blackmouth fishing Monday. Good luck finding more than a small handful of people who have actually participated in the fishery thus far. Jerry Johnson of Puget Sound Anglers-East Jefferson Chapter has yet to get out on the water, and hasn’t heard of anyone else dropping a line in the salt, either. “It’s been pretty quiet,” Johnson said. “If it clears up . . . somebody might break out and go out there. Right now, I don’t know of any activity at all.” On another PSA note, this week’s extreme winter weather also led to the postponement of the North Olympic Peninsula Chapter’s annual fundraiser, originally set for Thursday in Sequim. Former chapter president Mike Schmidt said a makeup date has yet to be set, but there is a chance the event will be moved to the third Thursday in February. The fundraiser benefits the Olympic Peninsula Kids Fishing Program, which includes Kids Fishing Day at the reclamation pond near Carrie Blake Park in Sequim. The free fishing day is set for Saturday, May 19, this year. TURN



Prep postponements march on Weather knocks out tonight’s games PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

This slow week in high school sports just got slower. All area basketball games scheduled for tonight have been postponed. That pretty much makes it a clean sweep for the week thanks to the snow storms

and the below-freezing temperatures that just won’t quit. “There will be no school [Friday], so our games have been postponed,” Sequim athletic director Dave Ditlefsen said. “We will start rescheduling the games next week.” The week started innocently enough when the lone prep sports event Monday, the Port Angeles girls basketball

game at the Martin Luther King Jr. Day tournament at Foster High School in Tukwila, was canceled because of Sunday’s and Monday’s snow storms. It went downhill from there when a whole slate of league boys and girls basketball games (10 in all) were postponed Tuesday. Wednesday’s Class 1B basketball games and 1A and 2A

league dual-meet wrestling events also were postponed. The 10 postponed league basketball games from tonight make it a clean sweep. Weather 6, sports events 0. Warmer weather is expected to hit the North Olympic Peninsula sometime today or tonight. It probably will take a few days to scour out the compacted snow and ice from the roads.


New England coach Bill Belichick, left, congratulates Baltimore coach John Harbaugh after the Ravens’ 33-14 win in a wildcard playoff game Jan. 10, 2010 in Foxborough, Mass. The two coaches will go at it again Sunday.

Brothers try to be Super Harbaughs on a course to meet Feb. 5 for crown BY JANIE MCCAULEY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — When addressing his 49ers this week, Jim Harbaugh can point to the monumental miss in his 15-year NFL career: He came a last-gasp pass short of making the Super Bowl. He still has an out-of-whack right pinkie and noticeable hitch in his step to show for his time in the league. His big brother, John, never played at football’s highest level and instead might motivate his Baltimore Ravens with examples of sacrifices by military members in real-life conflicts. The Harbaughs, separated in age by all of 15 months, took different paths to the doorstep of the Super Bowl. Now, they’re sparking talk of a “Superbaugh.” Baltimore plays at New England in Sunday’s first game for the AFC title at noon, then San Francisco hosts the New York Giants for the NFC crown at 3 p.m.

Parents to watch Their parents, Jack and Jackie, plan to watch on television from home in Wisconsin. While the brothers have spoken during the playoffs, Jim is quick to point out they are each handling business their own way. “Each situation is different,” he said. “There are some similarities, there are some differences. “Their situation is similar in some ways, and different in others. We’re each going to handle it accordingly.” John Harbaugh began at the lowest rung of coaching and worked his way up slowly, a former college defensive back at Miami of Ohio whose playing career ended there. He has guided the Ravens’ staunch, playmaking defense.

NFL Playoffs Jim Harbaugh was a star college quarterback at Michigan, a first-round draft pick and eventual Pro Bowler who turned to coaching much later. His thick offensive playbook featuring a version of the West Coast offense can be overwhelming, and Harbaugh has been known to mix in some twists, such as using David Akers to throw a pass on a fake field goal or throwing to a nose tackleturned part-time fullback. In last Saturday’s 36-32 lastsecond win against Drew Brees and the favored Saints, Harbaugh even used star defensive tackle Justin Smith for a few plays on offense.

Game planning He gets a kick out of the game-planning process and throwing in some new wrinkles each week. “Really enjoyable. Yeah, it’s a fun part of the job, and I think the thing that makes it fun is that the players are really stimulated by that,” Jim Harbaugh said. “And we’ve got smart guys that they want it, they almost need it. And really keeps them on a razor’s edge.” Throughout the season, the Harbaughs talk regularly to share ideas, yet suddenly are in scouting mode with the potential for another history-making matchup next month in Indianapolis. On Thanksgiving night, they became the first brothers to face each other as NFL head coaches. “It’s pretty neat. I’m proud of him,” John Harbaugh said. “He’s proud of what we’re doing.” Jim considers himself a Ravens fan. “Had a chance to watch his game, and found myself, as always, pulling very hard for him

San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh speaks at a press conference Thursday in Santa Clara, Calif. and his team. Very happy for his success,” Jim said. “I watch as a brother, as a fan of his team, and also as a possible opponent, yes.” One thing neither likes during game week is anything they consider nonsense — a distraction to the one and only goal of a victory. The Harbaughs can be dismis-

sive. They’re known to sneer or blow off questions altogether when it comes to injuries or any other tidbit that might give an opponent insight or a possible advantage — perceived or otherwise. TURN

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — San Francisco tight end Delanie Walker has returned to practice for the first time since breaking his left jaw in two places late in the regular season and hopes to be healthy enough to play in the NFC championship game. Walker had the wires removed on Monday and took part in practice on a limited basis with no contact on Wednesday. He was out there again during the open media portion on Thursday. “I didn’t do too much, so I won’t say I was rusty,” Walker said before Thursday’s practice. “I feel like I was good. Everybody said I looked faster and that I looked like I was over-hyper. Because you get back on the field, you try to do everything full speed.” Coach Jim Harbaugh said Thursday that Walker’s status is up to team doctors and Walker said he will push to get on the field on Sunday against the New York Giants. “If they leave it up to me, of course I’m going to play,” Walker said. “I want to help my team out, and this is a big game, and I feel like if I’m out there maybe I can

49ers’ Walker Robinson to Pro Bowl Seahawks may play Sunday THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


help out with the offense.” Walker broke his jaw in two places when he took a knee to the face from Seahawks linebacker Leroy Hill in the first quarter Dec. 24. Walker is a key part of San Francisco’s offense as the 49ers used at least two tight ends on the field more than any other team in the regular season. The 49ers ran 43 percent of their plays this season with two or more tight ends, compared to a league average of 26 percent, according to STATS LLC. Walker was tied for fourth on the team in the regular season with 19 catches for 198 yards and three touchdowns. Justin Peelle, the third string tight end, had just one catch in the regular season. “Delanie is a very key cog in what we do,” offensive coordinator Greg Roman said. “He’s talented physically. He’s talented with what he can handle in terms of game planning. The load we put on him is very unique to what most players get in the NFL, or anywhere for that matter. “He brings speed, playmaking ability, the ability to block in a variety of ways — in space, in the box. He’s just a dynamic tight end.”

RENTON — Seattle Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson is headed to Hawaii after being added to the NFC roster for the Pro Bowl. Robinson was added on Thursday after Green Bay fullback John Kuhn pulled out due to injury. Robinson was the first alternate and this will be his first Pro Bowl appearance. Robinson helped running back Marshawn Lynch become Seattle’s first 1,000-yard back since

2005. Lynch scored a touchdown in 11 straight games and Seattle was one of the top running teams in the NFL the second half of the season. Robinson also had a touchdown receiving and he returned a blocked punt for a touchdown this season. Robinson joins safety Earl Thomas as Seattle’s representatives at the Pro Bowl.


TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Alabama has hired Doug Nussmeier as offensive coordinator and brought Lance Thompson back to coach outside linebackers. Nussmeier directed the Washington Huskies offense the past three seasons. He replaces Jim McElwain, who left to become head coach at Colorado State after helping the Crimson Tide win its second national championship in three years. Thompson also coached outside linebackers for Alabama in 2007 and 2008 before spending three seasons at Tennessee. He replaces

Sal Sunseri, now Tennessee’s defensive coordinator. Nussmeier worked with quarterback Jake Locker, the No. 8 overall draft pick by the Tennessee Titans last year. Washington’s offense scored 57 touchdowns and 431 points last season, the second-highest totals in school history behind only the 1991 national championship team. Sophomore Keith Price broke school records for passing touchdowns (33), completion percentage (66.9) and passing efficiency rating (161.9). Alabama coach Nick Saban said Nussmeier will be “a great fit.”

Roddick down and out Down Under American withdraws vs. Hewitt at Aussie Open BY JOHN PYE THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MELBOURNE, Australia — Andy Roddick lunged for a shot by Lleyton Hewitt and felt a sharp pain in his right leg. He stayed down on his hands and one knee for a few seconds, wondering if his Australian Open was finished. He played the next two points, falling behind 3-0 in the second set, before taking a medical timeout to treat his hamstring. Still, Roddick played on. Clearly restricted, he didn’t bother to chase down some shots and walked slowly between points with his head down. Finally, after 16 more games, Roddick called it quits. He retired with Hewitt leading the secondround match 3-6, 6-3, 6-4. “It’s a miserable, terrible thing being out there compromised like that,” Roddick said. The 29-year-old American knew he wouldn’t be able to fool an opponent he was playing for the 14th time, one of the few players on the tour older than he is, somebody who was ranked No. 1 before he was and someone with one more Grand Slam title. “He’s a tough guy to play,” said Roddick, now 7-7

against Hewitt for his career. “You can try to ham-andegg-it against a lot of guys. But he’s really intelligent. He knew what was going on.” Roddick’s limitations were obvious in the second and third sets. He threw his racket into the wall and argued with the chair umpire over a line call. He bristled when a woman shouted, “Come on Lleyton,” just as Roddick was about to serve. “It’s frustrating. It’s discouraging,” he said, referring to the hamstring tendon injury. “You know, your sensible mind says to have a sense of perspective. You still have it pretty good. The competitor in you fee∫ls terrible and wants to break stuff.” Roddick had his chances. He converted the only break-point chance in the first set and even had opportunities after he injured his leg. But when he knew he needed to win two more sets to advance, he called the trainer, then walked over to shake Hewitt’s hand. “I was hitting the ball as well as I could from a compromised position and still felt like I was just hanging on,” he said. “I don’t know that it would have been smart to

If I’m looking at timelines, I think there’s three weeks or so before I have to play again. I like those timelines a lot more than two days.” Hewitt, who turns 31 next month, goes to the third round against Milos Raonic, the big-serving, 21-year-old Canadian. If Hewitt eliminates an opponent who has dropped only two service games this year, he could face defending champion Novak Djokovic in the fourth round. Djokovic, who won three of the four major titles last year, kept getting better in his 6-3, 6-2, 6-1 win over Santiago Giraldo. Fourth-seeded Andy Murray, who lost to Djokovic in last year’s Australian final, ousted Edouard Roger-Vasselin of France 6-1, 6-4, 6-4. No. 5 David Ferrer beat American Ryan Sweeting 6-7 (4), 6-2, 3-6, 6-2, 6-3, and No. 6 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga downed Ricardo Mello of Brazil 7-5, 6-4, 6-4. No. 2 Rafael Nadal and No. 3 Roger Federer, with 26 Grand Slam titles between them, play in backto-back matches on Rod Laver Arena on Friday, with defending women’s champion Kim Clijsters to play Daniela Hantuchova in a THE ASSOCIATED PRESS night match on Hisense Arena.

Strycova 6-0, 6-4 in the second round. “Five hundred is a lot of matches to play, let alone to win,” she said, adding that the left ankle she badly sprained two weeks ago wasn’t an issue. “It’s totally fine. It was my good ankle, so I’m good.” Williams won the Australian Open in 2009 and 2010, but didn’t defend her title in 2011 because she was injured. No. 2 Petra Kvitova moved into the third round with a 6-2, 2-6, 6-4 win over Carla Suarez Navarro. Maria Sharapova, one of the three former champions in the women’s draw, routed U.S. qualifier Jamie Hampton 6-0, 6-1. No. 7 Vera Zvonareva, a two-time semifinalist at Melbourne Park, No. 9 Marion Bartoli and No. 21 Ana Ivanovic all advanced. For Roddick, this was his earliest Australian Open exit since he first entered in 2002. By not defending points he won at the start of last season, he’ll fall in the rankings. He already dropped to No. 14 last year, losing his spot as the top American, after an injury-interrupted season. For a player who hasn’t been able to add another Grand Slam singles title since his only major victory at the 2003 U.S. Open, Roddick acknowledges the physical and mentally toll. He had treatment every day in the offseason to get prepared for 2012.

Brothers: Harbaughs aim for Super meeting CONTINUED FROM B1 Jim Harbaugh had a roster full of playoff first-timers going into last Saturday’s win. His message: “Don’t overcook it.” Translation: Stick with what got you here. John Harbaugh has a postseason-tested roster of men who have been in the big games before. Ray Lewis is still around from the 2001 Super Bowl champion team. Both possess a laser-like football focus and find unique ways to motivate. “When he gets fired up, it’s fire and brimstone,”

Ravens linebacker Jarret Johnson said of John. “But for the most part, he reads a lot. He draws a lot from the military. We get a lot of poetry. He uses a lot of different analogies and stuff. “I would say he’s all over the place. He’s a rah-rah guy when he needs to be, and he’s also very subtle. Maybe a Shakespeare speech, something like that. He draws inspiration from everywhere.” Jim has his players buying into a blue-collar mentality, and there are actual blue-collar shirts to fit the theme.

Defensive line coach Jim Tomsula wears his regularly around team headquarters. “It’s really been fun to see the sayings that have really grabbed on from the bluecollar aspect,” Akers said. “A lot of this country is built on the blue-collar idea.” Jim Harbaugh always has a story to share. From the one about his uncles who untucked their shirts after a long day’s work — he now does the same after each victory — to his own missed opportunity at a Super Bowl, one he figured surely would come again. In the AFC champion-

ship game after the 1995 season, the Colts had the ball on the Steelers 29 on third-and-1, but Harbaugh’s Hail Mary throw to the end zone went through Aaron Bailey’s hands as time expired. Pittsburgh won, 20-16. “He just tells us to give it all we have, give it all we’ve got, go out there and just fight, just fight as a team,” running back Frank Gore said. “Think about all the bad times we had here and now we have this opportunity and go take advantage of it.

That’s what we’re trying to do.” If Jim Harbaugh wins Sunday, he’ll be headed back to a city where he is still loved despite not coming through that day. His sister, Joani Crean — whose husband coaches at Indiana — still regularly gets stopped by strangers when she travels to Indianapolis with their stories about her brother, Jim. Both Harbaughs recall their youths to give examples of what they learned from their coaching father, Jack. During training camp,

John Harbaugh talked about sharing one of those tales with his team. “The guys laughed. They’ve heard it before, but when you say, ‘This is something my dad used to tell me,’ boom, it disarms them a little bit. They appreciate it,” he said. John also took part in an NFL-USO coaches tour of the Persian Gulf in 2009 and occasionally calls on military personnel to address the team after practice. In turn, in 2010 he spoke to the Army’s 1st Cavalry and attended its team-building symposium.

Ridge return Sometimes Jack Frost doesn’t know when to say when. Take this week for example. We’re begging for snow, then the sardonic little snot decides to dump on us Snowpocalypse style. Now, it’s not having enough snow that’s the problem. It’s having too much below Hurricane Ridge. Hurricane Ridge Winter Sports Club President Lori Lynn Gray said this weekend’s planned ski and snowboard school opener will be postponed another week due to inclement weather. With some of the ski school’s students possibly stuck in their own neighborhoods, it didn’t make much sense to begin things Saturday and Sunday. “People are having trouble getting out of their driveways,” Gray said Thursday afternoon. “I just think it would be safest to postpone it for a weekend. It will be fine, we’ll just start the weekend after this. The Ridge will be open, just no ski school.” The Ridge actually opened to organized ski activities for the first time this past holiday Monday.

Enough snow fell over the weekend for mountain manager Craig Hofer to get things into place on the intermediate and bunny slopes. Obviously, some extra powder has been thrown into the mix. Hofer said he plans on getting things up and running again Saturday. As for the Poma lift, it’s probably going to take another two or three feet of snow before Hofer can get that going. See Page B1 of today’s PDN for more information on winter sports activities at the Ridge.

Fun ’n’ Advice






DEAR ABBY: I caught my 16-year-old daughter, “Krista,” smoking marijuana. I punished her for it but never told my wife because I was afraid she’d force me to make a decision that I don’t want to make. I have been married to my second wife for three years. For much of that time, Krista has been a nightmare. She doesn’t listen to anyone. We have tried every type of punishment we can think of, and nothing has worked. Recently, my wife brought up the idea of sending Krista to a boarding school for troubled teens. At first, the suggestion made me angry, but after the marijuana incident, I am more receptive to it. I am wracked with guilt. Sending my daughter away makes me feel like a failure as a father. But there may be no other choice. How does a parent know when enough is enough? Fed-Up Father in Minnesota

quirky brother George, played by Treadway, Claire tries to keep everything from completely unraveling before Christmas. “It is a holiday play,” acknowledged Crescent School drama coach Christine Romeo. She sees nothing wrong with some cheer. “We decided a little extra merriment could only be a good thing in the dark and dreary weeks ahead of us.” All community members are invited to “Happy Hollandaise,” which was penned by Tim Koenig. Romeo promises mixedup identities, hijinks and an ending that surprises — and satisfies. The climax of “Hollandaise” involves “transformation, forgiveness and a beautiful new beginning,” she said. Admission for adults is $5, or $3 for students, while children age 5 and younger get in free.

Lighting the creative

Song and art unite at weekend performance BY DIANE URBANI




A “performance painting” such as this one titled “Wetlands” by Jeff Tocher — painted at Bella Italia during a December performance by singer Kim Trenerry — will materialize tonight at Wine on the Waterfront in Port Angeles. Tocher will bring his brushes and colors to the venue as Trenerry offers her blues and folk music.

PORT ANGELES — Singer Kim Trenerry and performance painter Jeff Tocher will collaborate tonight at Wine on the Waterfront, the all-ages venue upstairs in The Landing mall at 115 E. Railroad Ave. It’s “a performance within a performance,” promised Wine on the Waterfront manager Andy Griffiths. Tocher is an artist known for his wildly colorful visions of Port Townsend, Sequim and Port Angeles, and of musicians ranging from John Lennon to the Paperboys. Trenerry is a singer and songwriter of “progressive jamgrass,” folk and gospel for bands including Deadwood Revival and the CornStalks. She’ll step onto the stage for a solo set with just voice and guitar at 8 p.m., while Tocher takes up his brushes and palette. He’ll use the inspiration provided by Trenerry’s music and the audience response, Griffiths said, to complete a painting by the end of the evening. The cover charge tonight is $3. Saturday night brings more live music to WOW, as the Celtic folk duo Fret Noir arrives to play at 8 p.m. Again the cover will be $3. To round out the weekend Sunday afternoon, WOW will bring in singer, songwriter and guitarist simply named Otter for music at 3 p.m. The Otter show has no cover charge.

She’s released a batch of records, from 1997’s “Zydeco Sensation” and 1999’s “I’m a Woman” up to 2011’s “Come Get Some.” Over the years her voice has deepened, and Ledet’s lyrics, like her playing, have stayed quite hot and spicy.
