County agency probed Development chief told to hire lawyer BY PAUL GOTTLIEB PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” An investigation prompted by an overtime complaint has expanded into â€œother issues,â€? according to the Clallam County administrator, and top planner Sheila Roark Miller has been told to hire an attorney. The Clallam County Department of Community Development is being investigated by county Human Resources Department attorney Akin Blitz, a Portland, Ore., lawyer whose firm hired Kenneth Bauman, a former FBI agent and former Roark Miller assistant U.S. attorney, to conduct the inquiry beginning March 1. Bauman has finished the investigative phase of his inquiry, said Blitz, who expects the finished report by May 31. DCD employees initially were interviewed about a whistleblower complaint involving a supervisor who allegedly asked an employee to work overtime on a Sunday and told the employee not to record the time, County Administrator Jim Jones said.
Complaint filed in February The complaint was filed with county Human Resources on Feb. 21, said director Rich Sill, who would not disclose the text of the complaint or the name of the person who filed it, saying the information was confidential as part of a personnel investigation. If the allegation is true, it would be a violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act, Jones said. The interviews prompted a broader investigation concerning the DCD, Jones said, adding that he could not provide specifics. TURN

Water plant woes likely to hold up dam removal Sediment-clogged screens replaced BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ AND PAUL GOTTLIEB PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” Additional repairs are needed for the sediment-clogged Elwha Water Treatment Plant on the Elwha River, and that could push the
removal of the remaining 60 feet of Glines Canyon Dam past the initially estimated July 1 resumption date, an Olympic National Park spokeswoman said. Earlier this year, National Park Service staff determined that the backup intake at the water plant, which is 2.8 miles from the riverâ€™s mouth, needs new sediment-filtering fish screens, and two of six screens have been replaced by National Park Service
contractor Macnak Construction. Work halted in April, however, after river sediment unexpectedly began flowing into the Elwha Water Treatment Plant â€” which was built to filter sediment from water before it is treated for the Port Angeles water supply â€” and reached components not designed to ever handle the material. Park Service engineers also have determined the pump stationâ€™s pipes will not be able to

Passings By The Associated Press
JEFF HANNEMAN, 49, a founding member of Slayer whose career was irrevocably changed after a spider bite, has died. Slayer spokeswoman Heidi Robinson-Fitzgerald said Mr. Hanneman died Thursday morning of liver failure at a Los Angeles hospital with his wife, Kathy, by his side. The guitarist recently had begun writing songs with the band in anticipation of recording a new album later this year. He had been slowly recovering from what was believed to be a spider bite that nearly cost him his arm after he failed to seek immediate treatment. Robinson-Fitzgerald said it’s believed the spider bite contributed to the failure of Mr. Hanneman’s liver, but it
is unclear whether an autopsy will be scheduled. No funeral arrangements have been made. Mr. Hanneman cofounded the thrash metal pioneers in Huntington Beach, Calif., in 1982.
_________ JOHN WILLIAMSON, 80, a pioneer of the 1960s sexual revolution as cofounder of Topanga Canyon’s Sandstone Retreat, where nudity and free love once took place with abandon, has died. Mr. Williamson died of cancer March 24 at a hospital in Reno, Nev., said his wife, Barbara Williamson. The pair had lived on a Northern Nevada ranch for the past 18 years, taking in abandoned lions, tigers, cougars and other big cats.
They were a young newlywed couple in 1968 when they bought a cluster of rundown buildings on 15 acres overlooking the Pacific Ocean and turned it into the Sandstone Foundation For Community Systems Research. It offered seminars on human bonding, relationships and sexuality, but its Sandstone Retreat, where as many as 500 people would gather on weekends to frolic in the nude, swap spouses and engage in group sex, quickly made its existence in the bohemian canyon notorious. Although membership flourished, she said, the retreat never took in enough money to pay the bills. They sold the property in 1972, and Sandstone closed a couple years later.

A3 Briefly: Nation Never give up your guns, NRA conclave told HOUSTON — The public face of the National Rifle Association implored members Saturday to never give up their weapons in the wake of recent gun control efforts in Congress that he said will “destroy us and every ounce of our freedom.” “We will never surrender our guns, never,” Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre told several thousand people during the organization’s LaPierre annual member meeting, which is part of the yearly NRA convention being held this weekend in Houston. LaPierre directed much of his criticism at President Barack Obama and White House efforts to pass legislation in Congress that would have expanded background checks for gun sales. That bill failed to pass in the Senate last month. LaPierre said the bill “got the defeat that it deserved.”

Israel attack aimed at missiles from Iran Syria storing weapons, U.S. officials say
Obama doesn’t see sending troops to Syria
THE NEW YORK TIMES
WASHINGTON — The airstrike that Israeli warplanes carried out in Syria last week was directed at a shipment of advanced surface-to-surface missiles from Iran that Israel believed was intended for Hezbollah, the militant Lebanese organization, American officials said Saturday. It was the second time in four months that Israel had carried out an attack in foreign territory intended to disrupt the pipeline of weapons from Iran to Hezbollah, and the raid was a vivid example of how regional adversaries are looking after their own interests as Syria becomes more chaotic. Iran and Hezbollah have both backed President Bashar Assad in the Syrian civil war, now in its third year. But as fighting in Syria escalates, they also have a powerful stake in expediting the delivery of advanced weapons to Hezbollah in case Assad loses his grip on power.
Israel threatened Israel, for its part, has repeatedly cautioned that it will not allow Hezbollah to receive “game changing” weapons that could threaten the Israeli heartland after a post-Assad government took power. And as Washington, D.C., considers how to handle evidence of

chemical weapons use by the Syrian government, a development it has described as a “red line,” Israel is clearly showing that it will stand behind the red lines it sets. “The Israelis are saying, ‘OK, whichever way the civil war is going, we are going to keep our red lines, which are different from Obama’s,’” said Ehud Yaari, an Israel-based fellow of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.
Stored in warehouse The missiles that were the target of the raid had been sent to Syria by Iran and were being stored in a warehouse at Damascus International Airport when they were struck, according to an American official. Two prominent Israeli defense analysts said military officials had told them that the targeted shipment included Scud Ds, which Syrians have developed from Russian weapons and have a range up to 422 miles — long enough to
PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA said in Latin America, where he ended a three-day visit, that he doesn’t foresee a scenario in which the U.S. would send troops to Syria. Instead, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has said the U.S. is reviewing its opposition to arming the opposition. The U.S. so far has balked at sending weapons to the rebels, fearing the arms could end up in the hands of al-Qaida-linked groups or other extremists in the opposition ranks. Secretary of State John Kerry, meanwhile, is heading to Moscow this week to try to persuade Russian President Vladimir Putin to support, or at least not veto, a fresh effort to impose U.N. penalties on Syria. The Associated Press reach Eilat, in southernmost Israel, from Lebanon. But an American official, who asked not to be identified because he was discussing intelligence reports, said they were Fateh-110s. The Fateh-110 is a mobile, accurate, solid-fueled missile that represents a considerable improvement over the liquidfueled Scud missile.

THE CREATORS OF Solar Impulse — considered the world’s mostadvanced sun-powered plane — say their cross-country journey is marking a milestone in aviation history. But more importantly, Bertrand Piccard and Andre Borschberg said, they hope it will boost interest in the potential of renewable energy. Piccard finished a 20-hour flight from San Francisco to Phoenix, marking the first leg of the trip across the U.S. in the solar airplane. Piccard landed the craft at Sky Harbor Airport at about 12:30 a.m. Saturday, having used only three-quarters of the plane’s battery power.
A NORTHERN CALIFORNIA white supremacist convicted of killing a child molester has been sentenced to 26 years to life in prison. Charles Francis Gaskins, 48, was sentenced after pleading no contest in March to the killing of Neil Hayes in 2009. A probation report said Gaskins was a member of a supremacist group that required its members to attack anyone with a history of child molestation. Gaskins and his wife, Sandra Sheaves, were living in a home near Sacramento, when they allowed the 66-year-old Hayes to move in. When Sheaves discovered that Hayes was a registered sex offender, she told Gaskins.

The decision to charge for the underground museum housing relics of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks has been met with dismay by some relatives of 9/11 victims. Memorial foundation head Joseph Daniels said Saturday that the museum has little choice.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
The American Spirit returns to Port Angeles and Port Townsend this week, bringing some 55 passengers to explore the downtowns and partake in tours and entertainment. The American Cruise Lines ship is scheduled to dock at City Pier in Port Angeles by about 9 p.m. Monday night, stay through Tuesday and leave for Port Townsend at noon the following day. It is expected to arrive in Port Townsend by 5 p.m. Wednesday, stay through Thursday and depart at 4 a.m. Friday. It will be second of 13 cruises planned this year. Organizers of the welcomes planned in both towns said they will tweak activities after the first visit last week.
Too large to dock Perhaps the biggest surprise in the inaugural run was that the 205-foot American Spirit was too large to dock at Union Wharf in Port Townsend on Wednesday night. Although the captain had measured the ship and the wharf, the tie-up points did not match with the boatâ€™s cleats. The boat anchored in the southern part of Port Townsend Bay, and the 40

Visitors enjoyed themselves regardless, said business owners and organizers. â€œFor a Thursday, we had double the business,â€? said Melinda Bryden, a partner at the Port Townsend Gallery. â€œIt would have been better if they were able to actually dock and spend a little

The merchants werenâ€™t the only ones who wanted to extend the excursion. â€œIt went really well, aside from the logistical issues,â€? said Bill Tennent, executive director of the Jefferson County Historical Society. â€œThe feedback we got was that the people wanted both the walking tours and the bus tours to be longer.â€? While logistical difficulties may have clouded the first in the series of visits, they can be resolved, organizers said, and they look forward to a profitable partnership between the cruise line and Port Townsend. â€œIt was a little complicated, but we made it work,â€? said city marketing director Christina Pivarnik. â€œAll in all, it went well, and the people on the ship were super happy with their visit.â€? Although the ships will not be able to dock in downtown Port Townsend this season, Jim Pivarnik, Port
of Port Townsend deputy director and Christina Pivarnikâ€™s husband, is negotiating with the Coast Guard to see whether the ship can anchor closer to downtown. This could be in place by the time of the next stop Wednesday.
â€˜Get a little closerâ€™ â€œWe are seeing if we can anchor the ship near Port Hudson, which would allow them to dock at the maritime center or Union Wharf,â€? he said. â€œIt would be nice to get a little closer.â€? To promote the city, the Main Street program has created a coupon discount book for shopping and dining to distribute to cruise passengers. The coupon books feature specials from 42 uptown and downtown businesses, though some merchants will have to wait for this to pay off. â€œI was disappointed that no one came into the store. I didnâ€™t even see anyone from the cruise walking by,â€? said Pippa Mills, owner of Pippaâ€™s Real Tea.

66-year-old failed to yield on turn PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” A 66-year-old Port Angeles woman has been cited for failing to yield after the Toyota SUV she was driving collided with a Mazda minivan Friday on U.S. Highway 101 at Blue Mountain Road. The State Patrol said 67-year-old John G. Helmn of Nanaimo, B.C., was driving eastbound when his 2009 Mazda 5 crashed into a 2010 Toyota Highlander driven by Margarethe U. Purviance about 7 miles east of Port Angeles at 12:47 p.m. Friday. Purviance, who was not injured, was cited for failure to yield right of way.
Transported to OMC Helmn was transported to Olympic Medical Center on Friday but was no longer listed on the patient registry as of Saturday morning. Troopers said Purviance, of Port Angeles, was turning left from the westbound lanes onto Blue Mountain Road and did not see Helmnâ€™s oncoming vehicle. The State Patrol said Helmn swerved to the right to avoid the impact but was hit on the driverâ€™s side of his vehicle. Both drivers were wearing seat belts, according to a State Patrol memo. Drugs or alcohol was not suspected as a cause. The Mazda minivan was destroyed, and the Toyota sport utility vehicle sustained reportable damage, the State Patrol said.

Some organized cruise ship activities, such as the underground Port Angeles tours led by Heritage Tours owner Don Perry, will be tightened this week to fit with the shipâ€™s meal schedule â€” pre-bought lunches and dinners are served on board. At least one tour, an allday excursion to Lake Crescent and back to downtown Port Angeles, was not popular with cruise passengers because it took too long and will be dropped, while a shorter tour of Lake Crescent will be added. Still available are guided bus tours to Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park and the possibility of visiting Victoria on the MV Coho. â€œWe expected that we would have to fine-tune things a bit as we learned what [the passengers] liked and didnâ€™t,â€? said Russ Veenema, executive director of the Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce, which took the lead in planning the cruise ship reception, last week. The ship has been running light, but cruise line officials expect it to fill up to its 100-passenger capacity later in the season. Each eight-day Puget Sound cruise â€” a round trip from Seattle â€” explores the San Juan Islands and visits Port Angeles before traveling to Port Townsend. After this coming week, the American Spirit is set to dock in Port Angeles on May 13, 20 and 27; Sept. 9, 16, 23 and 30; and Oct. 7, 14, 21 and 28. It is scheduled to visit Port Townsend May 15, 22 and 29; Sept. 11, 18 and 25; and Oct. 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30.

Waterfront Trail stretch reopens in PA Work complete on stormwater, sewer line digs BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Burke explained. The Waterfront Trail is part of the cross-Peninsula Olympic Discovery Trail.
Shifting the trail Once the marathon is done, Burke said, the stretch of the Waterfront Trail winding through the Rayonier property will be closed off. The trail will be straightened, redirected over a concrete bridge being built over Ennis Creek as part of the CSO project. Burke said the trail will be shifted “by the end of July, tentatively.” Francis Street Park, closed since February due to other CSO work, is expected to be reopened by June 14, Burke said. “Our true goal is to have [Francis Street Park] opened by the marathon, but that all depends on weather and construction activity,” Burke said. Since the park has been closed, Burke said, IMCO crews have installed a 36-inch gravity sewer line from the park east to the city’s wastewater treatment plant. A launching station for a pipeline inspection gauge, abbreviated “pig,” also was installed at the park, Burke said. When the lengths of pipe are fully operational, the pig will be used to clean and inspect a roughly mile-long stretch of pipe that dips down in elevation between Francis Street Park and the treatment plant, city officials have said. Burke said the pig launching station, built below ground level, will be invisible except for metal panels used by city public works staff to access the launching equipment.
PORT ANGELES — The stretch of the Waterfront Trail running from Hollywood Beach east to Rayonier Inc.’s former mill site reopened last week after being closed for seven months during a city construction project. That portion of trail had been closed to pedestrian and bike traffic since October while the city completed sewer and stormwater line excavation as part of the $16.7 million first phase of the city’s combined sewer overflow, or CSO, project, said James Burke, the city’s project manager for the CSO work. The CSO project will increase sewer and stormwater capacity between downtown and the city’s wastewater-treatment plant near the Rayonier property. The end of Ennis Street, at the south end of the Rayonier site, also was opened Thursday, Burke added. The reopened section of trail, running about 1½ miles, winds through the Rayonier site, Burke said. The deadline for reopening it was May 15, per a milestone included in the city’s contract with Ferndale-based IMCO Construction, which is completing the CSO work. “They’ve just completed that milestone earlier than expected,” Burke said. The May 15 date was set so the segment could be opened in time for runners signed up for the North ________ Olympic Discovery Marathon, set for the first Sunday Reporter Jeremy Schwartz can in June, to train on the be reached at 360-452-2345, ext.

House fire in Happy Valley leaves tenant homeless PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
SEQUIM –– A renter has been displaced by a fire that heavily damaged a cedar-shake home at 765 McFarland Drive. Capt. Derrell Sharp with Clallam County Fire District No. 3 said the owner of the Happy Valley home who lives next door called in the alarm at 9:56 a.m. Friday after noticing smoke coming out of the house.
Firefighters, who found flames spreading from the southwest corner of the house, knocked down the fire in about 30 minutes and spent the next 1½ hours tamping down hot spots, said Patrick Young, Fire District No. 3 public information officer. No injuries were reported, Young said, and the person renting the house was not at home at
the time of the fire. Young did not identify the renter. The American Red Cross of the Olympic Peninsula was called to provide services to the home’s displaced resident. The home had substantial fire, smoke and water damage, Young said. A loss estimate was not immediately available. Young said the prelimi-
nary cause of the fire was thought to be electrical but that it remains under investigation. Fire District No. 3 crews called in assistance from Fire District No. 2. Crews from the Clallam County Public Utility District, Olympic Ambulance and Clallam County Sheriff’s Office also helped at the scene.

Rivers continued. â€œWe want to make every effort to make sure that the people who need the medical cannabis can get it, while those who are not authorized cannot purchase through medical channels.â€? Brian Smith, spokesman for the state Liquor Control Board, said marijuana use now is often recreational in nature and that referrals have been issued to people without legitimate ailments. â€œI think itâ€™s clear that a significant people that are going to medical marijuana dispensaries now are going there for recreational use,â€? Smith said. Dr. James Kimber Rotchford, an addiction specialist in Port Townsend, disagreed. He said the majority of those who ask him for marijuana prescriptions have legitimate pain issues, with only about 5 percent trying to scam the system. Hobart also finds a distinct difference between medical and recreational pot users. â€œMy customers have legitimate medical issues. They are really sick,â€? Hobart said. â€œThey have arthritis, MS, cancer. They just want to be free of their pain and donâ€™t care about getting high,â€? she added. Currently, marijuana sales through dispensaries are not taxed, the same as medicine. â€œI donâ€™t want to have to pay a tax on my medicine when I go to the drugstore and I donâ€™t think they should be taxing this because it is medicine,â€? Hobart said. â€œItâ€™s
not morally right.â€? Pharr said she is worried that state involvement will degrade the quality of the product. Her supply comes from the excess from medical marijuana patients who are allowed to grow for another patient. Having those close relationships with the growers, and knowing how they grow their plants, is important, she said.
Government control â€œThese are sick people,â€? Pharr said. â€œI think thereâ€™s a lot of fear that with the government in charge, the quality will not be as high, and the ability to make sure there are no pesticides or fertilizers is going to go away.â€? Smith said the layer of government control will ensure quality crops. â€œAnytime you apply a state license to something, thereâ€™s going to be a higher standard to meet,â€? Smith said. Hobart, a retired art teacher, said that though she may enter the recreational market if the conditions are right, she intends to stay in the medical market as long as possible. â€œIâ€™m just a little old lady trying to help people,â€? she said.

Anticipation of Litigationâ€? that was sent to 16 Park Service employees, including von Rosenberg, Winter, Maynes and Creachbaum. According to a copy of the email obtained by the Peninsula Daily News, Interior officials are preparing for possible legal action over alleged design flaws at the Elwha treatment plant that have caused â€œsignificant damage and delay.â€? The Solicitorâ€™s Office, the Interiorâ€™s legal branch, said its staff is â€œinvestigating the design deficiency issue of [Elwha Water Facilities] and anticipates legal action may result.â€?
McKeen said Friday the meeting established lines of communication between city staff and the Park Service over how Park Service staff are addressing the problems at the Elwha Water Treatment Plant, which with its surface water intake is collectively referred to as the Elwha Water Facilities. â€œWe felt it was a very beneficial meeting,â€? McKeen said, adding that more meetings are expected. Cutler said city engineering staff shared data on the Ranney Wellâ€™s operation with national park engineers. The city will provide input to the park as the problems with the Elwha Water Treatment Plant are corrected, he said. Other city staff members attending were attorney Bill Bloor, City Engineer Mike Puntenney and Water Superintendent Ernie Klimek. Park Service staff in attendance were Maynes, Olympic National Park Superintendent Sarah Creachbaum, Elwha River Restoration project manager Brian Winter and the National Park Serviceâ€™s Denver Service Center Elwha project manager, Karl von Rosenberg. â€œThere was a very good discussion [at the meeting], and a lot of cooperation was displayed,â€?

PORT ANGELES â€” Brad Collins, Port Angelesâ€™ current deputy mayor, has announced he will run for re-election to his City Council position. Collins was appointed by City Council members in early 2010 to fill the Position 1 seat left vacant by Larry Little, who resigned because Littleâ€™s wife was battling cancer, and was elected to complete Littleâ€™s four-year term in 2011. â€œNow, Iâ€™m running for my own term,â€? Collins said. Candidates will file declarations of candidacy the week of May 13-17. The 2013 primary election is set for Aug. 6, while the general election will be Nov. 5. Collins said Friday that one of the most pressing issues residents face is the specter of rising utility rates influenced by the various environmental projects the city is embarking on, such as the state Department of Ecology-mandated cleanup of the western portion of Port Angeles Harbor.
Utility rate increases
â€œI think weâ€™re still developing an approach that is positive for the city and for some of the companies Collins i n v o l v e d ,â€? Collins said, â€œas well as the Department of Ecology.â€? Other environmental issues are stabilization of the shuttered landfill, combined sewer overflow project, shoreline master program and phase II of the municipal stormwater permit. Moving forward, Collins, deputy director of resource development and capital projects at the nonprofit Serenity House of Clallam County, said he hopes to continue to be a â€œvoice of reasonâ€? when it comes to finding options rather than simply throwing money at new city problems or issues that crop up. Collins said heâ€™s enjoyed the collaboration with other council members. â€œI think the council has worked well together,â€? he said. â€œI think itâ€™s diverse, but it has worked well together.â€? Collins, who lives in Port Angeles with his wife, Jan, worked from 1989 to 2005 as the cityâ€™s community development director. Collins and his wife have raised two grown children in Port Angeles and have one granddaughter who also lives in the city. Collins currently serves as the cityâ€™s representative on a number of local commissions, boards and committees, including the William Shore Pool District Commission, the board of the Feiro Marine Life Center, the Clallam County Marine Resources Committee and the Strait Ecosystem Recovery Network. Collins is the third announced candidate for a City Council seat, after real estate broker Dan Gase announced he will be running for the seat currently held by Councilwoman Brooke Nelson, who will not seek re-election, and online newspaper publisher and disability advocate Peter Ripley announced he will seek the council position currently held by Councilman Max Mania. Neither Mania nor Councilman Patrick Downie, who is also up for re-election this year, has announced if he intends to seek re-election.
â€œUtility rate increases remain the No. 1 issue for most Port Angeles citizens, and the City Council and new City Manager Dan McKeen are working hard to get a handle on these environmental cleanup costs, which have escalated beyond the ability of our municipal and average family budgets to keep paying more and more each year,â€? Collins said. For the harbor cleanup, Ecology has determined the city, Port of Port Angeles and three private companies all bear some responsibility in cleaning up the toxic substances found in the sediment of Port Angeles Harbor. Ecology officials have said the city is responsible for the portion of contaminants that are thought to be associated with yearsâ€™ worth of untreated stormwater and wastewater flowing into the harbor, triggered by heavy rain events, from cityowned combined sewer outflows. Last year, the city imposed a 30-month surcharge on wastewater utility bills to pay for the cityâ€™s estimated $1 million share of studying how best to clean up the west Port Angeles ________ Harbor contaminants.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Sunday, May 5, 2013 PAGE
Looking over his garden of eatin’ MY ANCESTORS COME from Scotland, a place known for cold, wet weather, men wearing plaid dresses and a musical instrument that makes the sound you’d get if you sat on a bag of cats. Scotland is blamed for the W. Bruce creation of one Cameron of the most addictive substances known to humankind: golf. It’s also known for producing food so bad that even the people in England make fun of it. In fact, my father has always insisted that my ancestors were initially driven from their native land not because food was scarce, but because there was too much of it. Once my particular branch of the Cameron Clan settled in the Midwest, our diets improved: We ate beef and mashed pota-
toes, beef and baked potatoes, and, if someone was getting married, beef and scalloped potatoes. It was bland fare, but certainly better than the Scottish dish haggis, which is made from taking the inedible parts of a sheep, stuffing them into the stomach of the animal, and then holding your nose and boiling the whole mess for three hours. (Tip: It’s best to use a dead sheep.) You’ll know the haggis is ready to eat when your family suddenly emigrates to America. Having been raised a beefand-potatoes boy, I had no interest in any of what I referred to as the “foods” — I didn’t like Italian food, Chinese food or Mexican food. I trusted restaurants that advertised “eat” or “hamburger,” and that was it. Even as an adult, I was so suspicious of things like “spice” and “flavor” that I refused to try a Big Mac because of the special sauce. But in the 1980s, I bought a house in Michigan whose previ-
ous owner was a renowned gardener. The day I took possession of the place, I stood in the backyard, scratching my head over a tract of black soil carefully furrowed in rows and cordoned off with taut strings like some sort of huge dirt guitar. “Maybe we’ll get some vegetables out of this,” I suggested dubiously to my dog, who sniffed at the garden with distaste. That spring, the garden was suddenly filled with plants, thin branches clinging to the strings like babies learning to stand up in their cribs. The front rows were all peppers, most of them pointy as shark’s teeth — Mexican peppers that were a complete mystery to a boy descended from pastyfaced, haggis-eating, dress-wearing Scotsmen. Tomatoes sagged toward the ground like heavy Christmastree ornaments; zucchini swelled like Popeye’s forearms. Now, I’m a carnivore — I only eat food that eats food.

It was like chewing on a road flare. I tried to scream, but the pain was traveling faster than the speed of sound, so all I could manage was a strangled peeping noise. My dog, napping at my feet, jerked awake, stared at me, concluded I was dying and went back to sleep. Weeping, my vision growing dark, I staggered to the kitchen and ran cold water on my tongue, which still couldn’t believe this was happening. My endorphins, rushing to the scene, took one look and ran away. I’ve long since recovered, but this is one Scotsman who will always be careful about eating vegetables, even if they are free. Some of them bite back.
Do you think illegal immigrants who are already in the U.S. should be allowed to become citizens if they meet certain requirements?

But a true, penny-pinching Scotsman never turns down a free meal, and food doesn’t come much more free than when it climbs out of the soil in your yard and starts inching toward your back door. I made a hamburger-and-garden-vegetable casserole that wasn’t too bad except for the garden-vegetable part. And heck, I had all these peppers that the dog wouldn’t eat — surely there was some way I could prevent them from going to waste. I’d grown fond of nachos, which to a man whose ancestors celebrated good times by boiling sheep stomachs meant nothing more exotic than corn chips with melted cheese on top. The few times I’d ordered nachos in restaurants, I’d carefully picked off the peppers, but they must have been on there for a reason. I chopped up some jalapenos, serranos and, most ignorantly, habaneros, tossed them on a pile of chips and cheese and took a bite.

School’s out for good weather YOU’VE HEARD OF snow days. How about “sun days”? The promise of nice spring weather prompted a small private school to give students a day off to enjoy the sunshine and 60-degree plus temperatures. Friday was a “sun day” for the 205 students at Bellingham Christian School in Bellingham. “School Canceled Due To Great Weather! Wahooo!” the school’s website announced. “Yeah! It’s a Sun Day today, and everyone gets the day off from school.”
Principal Bob Sampson said he wanted to give students some time to re-energize and enjoy the good weather. He added that he wanted to re-create the excitement snow days get among the kids. He began teasing the possibility of the day off earlier in the week as weather forecasts predicted sunny skies for Friday and the weekend. “In a world that’s got a lot of hard things going, it’s fun to create a moment of joy,” Sampson said.

they can only accurately shoot one gun at a time and only one shot per trigger pull. Meanwhile, a tyrannical U.S. military would have high-caliber, fully automatic weapons, drones with Sidewinder missiles, laser-guided bombs, stealth fighter jets, tanks, trained SEAL combatants and even laser cannons. Consequently, these obsessed doomsday preppers proudly brandish their semiautomatic AR-15s that are about as effective as a peashooter against a grenade launcher when compared with U.S. military firepower.

Forest Service wants money back THE U.S. FOREST Service is in the business of preventing fires, not starting them. Yet the agency set off alarms in Congress and state capitals across the West by citing automatic spending cuts as the basis for demanding that dozens of states return $17.9 million in federal subsidies. And it’s all come down to a bureaucratic squabble over whether the money is subject to so-called sequestration because of the year it was paid — 2013 — as the Obama administration contends, or exempt from the cuts because of the year it was generated — 2012 — as the states insist. Right now, it’s a standoff heightened by history and hard fiscal realities. But with taxpayer cash scarce, both sides are digging in: ■ The Forest Service has to slash 5 percent of its budget under sequestration. ■ The states, meanwhile, have

Obama’s priorities When a high-profile pro-
depended for decades on a share of revenue from timber cut on federal land. Perhaps least willing to compromise are members of Congress who are up for re-election next year and are loath to let go of money that benefits potential voters back home. It’s not clear who gets to decide or whether the question ends up in court. But lines have been drawn. “We regret having to take this action, but we have no alternative under sequestration,” Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell wrote in March to governors in 41 states, explaining that since the payments were issued in the 2013 budget year, the money would be subject to sequestration. Infuriated, Republicans and Democrats from Capitol Hill to the governor’s offices banded together to fight back, arguing the money was paid to the states well before the spending reductions went into effect.

Wyoming have flat out refused to send the dollars back. “The frustration level is off the charts on this,” said Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., whose state is the top recipient of the payments and stands to lose nearly $3.6 million. At issue are so-called county payments, a revenue sharing plan that’s existed since President Theodore Roosevelt created the national forests to protect timber reserves from the cut-and-run logging going on at the time. For nearly a century, hundreds of counties (including Clallam and Jefferson counties) received a cut of the revenue from the timber sold on federal land. In recent years, the law has acted as a subsidy for states and counties hard hit by logging declines triggered by measures to protect threatened species. The money is being used for roads, schools and emergency services. The Associated Press

B Prep Notes
Looking to get back on track IT’S BEEN A bumpy road for the new era of Chimacum baseball. Traditionally one of the top Brad 1A programs in LaBrie the state, the Cowboys have taken the back seat this year with a youthful and inexperienced team. Coach Jim Dunn cautions about writing Chimacum off. “The process is still there, the tradition is still there,” he said. “Everything is in place.” The Cowboys are just taking a few lumps while the youngsters mature and prepare for another run at a state title. In the six years up to 2012, the Cowboys have placed in the top three in state four times, including capturing two 1A championships. The team should have had a fifth top-three finish last season except for an unexpected stumble in the quarterfinals with another starstudded team. After winning state in 2011 with superstars Landon Cray, Quinn Eldridge and Austin McConnell, the Cowboys were expected to finish at least in the top two last year with Dunn essentially the same lineup as in 2011. But Chimacum ran into a hot state-class pitcher at the wrong time, losing 1-0 to Kalama in the second round to spoil a 19-0 perfect season at the time to finish 19-1 and out of the running for another title. The Cowboys lost a ton of fouryear seniors from the 2012 squad and were expected to have some growing pains this year, but probably not at the depths they have struggled in 2013.
Loggers claim titles Crescent boys and girls roll over Bruins, Devils PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
JOYCE — Crescent dominated the North Olympic League boys and girls track and field championships at Crescent High School. The Loggers overwhelmingly controlled the boys events with strength and depth in the field, distance and hurdles events while the Clallam Bay Bruins swept first place in the sprint events. Crescent won with 90 points, followed by Clallam Bay with 51 and Neah Bay with 28. Crescent’s boys captured second at 1B state last year and seem to be gearing up for another run at the state title. The Loggers also dominated the girls side with the Red Devils making inroads in sprints and the Bruins taking two individual events and one relay. Crescent had 79.5 points to Neah Bay’s 45 and Clallam Bay’s 27.5. This league meet was different than past championship meets because for the first time it was a qualifier for bi-districts, which is set for Friday at Stanwood High School. The top five in each event advanced to Stanwood. “What a nice track meet,” Crescent coach Darrell Yount
Track said. “Perhaps a little nervewracking with so much on the line [this year]. So, while trying to score points and secure a team title, we also were attempting to advance our athletes to the next level. “And while that sounds simple enough, we have a very talented league. That made for some great battles throughout the day, and that pressure can result in fouls and other technique problems that only amplifies as the meet progresses.” It was big Josh Sowder leading the way yet again for Crescent with a big blast of the shot at 44 feet, 9 inches, which equals the best mark in the quad-district state qualifying bracket.

Rangers rally to top Taholah Rae’s sixth-inning hit gives Quilcene nonleague victory PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Going out with win Chimacum ended the season on a good note by earning a 2-0 victory over Bellevue Christian on Thursday. But that was only the fifth win of the season for the Cowboys as they finish 5-13, just the second time in the past seven years that they had a losing record. Chimacum won state in 2007 with Devin Cray and a youthful Arlo Evasick leading the way but then missed state the next year with an 8-9 record. The Cowboys picked up steam again in 2009 when Landon Cray — Devin Cray’s cousin — Quinn Eldridge and McConnell were freshmen. Those incredible freshmen took third in 2009, second in 2010 as sophomores and first in 2011 as juniors before the unexpected early exit from state in 2012. Landon Cray was the Superman on a team full of Batmans and Green Lanterns. Cray filled his cousin’s shoes quite well, and then some. The younger Cray was a four-time Nisqually League MVP and now is a budding star at Division I Seattle University. Landon Cray is hitting .296 with 20 runs, three doubles, two triples, three home runs and 15 RBI while playing mostly right field and center field through Friday. Two of his homers came against the Washington Huskies where Cray has been super hot, going 3 for 3 with a homer and five RBI in a 10-4 Seattle victory while playing right field, and he had a homer while batting lead-off and playing center field in a 14-1 loss to the Huskies. The 2013 Cowboys have no superstars, and essentially are mostly newbies to high school varsity baseball. TURN

Quilcene’s Alex Johnsen snares the ball and makes the out at second on Taholah’s Marquel Waugh.
QUILCENE — Sammy Rae’s two-out hit in the bottom of the sixth inning brought in two runs and completed the Quilcene softball team’s comeback against the Taholah Chitwins. Rae’s single, which scored Alex Johnsen and Megan Weller, broke a tie and gave the Rangers a 6-4 win and capped off a string of six unanswered runs by Quilcene. Taholah scored four runs in the third inning when Rae, who pitched a complete game, struggled to find the strike zone and gave up a handful of walks. Before and after that inning, though, Rae had no trouble finding her spots. The sophomore fanned 17 batters to improve her record to 9-0 on the season. In two games against the Chitwins, Rae has 32 strikeouts. “She got refocused, which is a sign of character,” Quilcene coach Mark Thompson said. The Rangers’ bats awoke in the bottom of the fourth inning. Rae led off with a stand-up double, and came around to
Preps score on a single by Emily Ward. Ward and Katie Bailey scored on a pinch-hit single down the left-field line by Alexis Gray to cut the deficit to 4-3. Quilcene tied the game in the fifth when Celsea Hughes scored after being caught in a rundown between third base and home plate. Rae struck out three in the bottom of the seventh, and Ward made a great play on a hit to deep center to prevent an extrabase hit, to seal the win for the Rangers (10-3). Quilcene returns to action Tuesday with a road tilt against Lake Quinault.

Now Sequim (9-6, 29 points) must beat North Kitsap (13-2, 39 points), which is tied with Kingston for the league lead, at home on Monday. Meanwhile, the Trojans (10-5, 29 points) seem to have an easier path to third place, as they play at North Mason (5-10, 14 points) on Monday. Olympic’s Ricky Wright scored the only goal of the game off a corner kick in the 12th minute. The Wolves had plenty of chances to score, but were unable to capitalize. “I thought the kids played one of their better games as far a moving the ball; there was great passing and hard tackling,” Sequim coach Dave Brasher said. Brasher named Nicholas Baird as the player of the match. “He was solid in the middle,” Brasher said. Goalkeeper Austin Wagner made four saves for the Wolves.

PORT ANGELES — The Roughriders eliminated the Eagles from the postseason race by prevailing in their last home game of the season. “We played by far our best overall game of the season, and the three seniors — Jack Doryland, Abinet Hayden, and Rasmus Aadeli — were instrumental in the victory,” Port Angeles coach Chris Saari said. “The game was fairly even, and went from end to end with each team creating good scoring opportunities throughout.” Klahowya’s Matt Danielson scored in the 10th minute, and the Eagles (5-11, 14 points) took a 1-0 lead into halftime. Early in the second half, the Riders scored the equalizer on a second-effort goal by Hayden in the 41st minute. Miki Andrus scored the go-ahead goal in the 46th minute on an assist from freshman Jeff Glatz. Glatz played a long ball deep into the Eagles penalty box, and Andrus elevated and flicked in the header goal. Port Angeles (2-13, five points) notched its first regulation win of the season, and what Saari called a “late-season morale booster.” He selected Andrus as the offensive player of the match. Doryland and Tristan Isett shared defensive player of the game honors, and Hayden and Wei-Yan Fu were the transition players of the match. The Riders finish their season at Bremerton (5-10, 16 points) on Monday. Port Angeles beat the Knights in a shootout last month.

season. Saunders added an RBI double off Brett Cecil in the ninth and finished 3 for 5 with three RBIs. “He had a big day for us,” Wedge said. “He just brings a lot of energy and intensity to the top of our lineup.” Ackley connected on a 3-2 pitch in the fourth, immediately after Dickey (2-5) had loaded the bases with back-to-back walks. “That’s an awesome feeling,” Ackley said. “Hitting a home run in general is a great feeling, but to have three guys on base and to put your team up, it was pretty important for us.” The blast to center was Ackley’s first homer of the season, and Dickey’s biggest
regret of the afternoon. “Outside of that I wasn’t too disappointed, but that singular pitch really put us in the hole, big time,” Dickey said. Toronto has lost four straight and has been outscored 25-3 since Tuesday’s 9-7 comeback win over Boston. A season-worst 11 games below .500, the Blue Jays have lost 14 of 18 overall. “We’re somewhat of a dysfunctional team right now,” Dickey said. “We’re kind of searching for a way to score runs, a way to pitch well. We’re doing a lot of things poorly, myself included.” Dickey (2-5) was booed by the crowd of 35,754 after
Raul Ibanez hit a one-out triple to center in the sixth and scored on Kelly Shoppach’s double. As the runs piled up, some fans responded with chants of “Go Leafs Go” for the NHL’s Maple Leafs, currently in the playoffs against the Boston Bruins. “I did hear them, it was hard not to,” Dickey said. “They were pretty animated. You can’t blame them. We’ve played well below our expectation. We’re booing ourselves. It’s tough.” Pitching on an extra day of rest because of lingering neck and back soreness, Dickey lost his third straight start. He allowed six hits, including a season-high three home runs. He walked
two and struck out five. Dickey said his neck and back weren’t a concern against the Mariners, and manager John Gibbons said the Blue Jays see no need to put Dickey on the disabled list. Dickey lost consecutive starts only once during his NL Cy Young season with the New York Mets in 2012. His last three-start losing streak came in July and August of 2011. It was a bad day all around for the Blue Jays, who even appeared to lose track of the number of outs and were slow to come off the field after Kendrys Morales struck out to end the fifth.

Orb, despite muddy conditions, captures Kentucky Derby BY MELISSA HOPPERT THE NEW YORK TIMES
LOUISVILLE, Ky. â€” The revelers were sloppy, the grounds were sloppy and the racetrack was sloppy. Yet, Orb, ridden by the red-hot Joel Rosario, found a way to win despite his lack of experience on a wet track, trudging to victory in the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby on Saturday at Churchill Downs. Orb held off Golden Soul to win the mile and a quar-
ter race. He paid $12.80 on a $2 bet to win. It was the first Derby victory for the Hall of Fame trainer Shug McGaughey and the esteemed Phipps family. Revolutionary finished third. The top contenders all drew favorable posts Wednesday, allowing the Churchill Downs oddsmaker, Mike Battaglia, to leave his early predictions for the morning line intact. But as the week wore on, the forecast grew more grim, leaving many handi-
cappers scrambling for a horse who has demonstrated that he can handle the slop. Orb, who had won four straight races entering the race, including the Florida Derby on March 30, proved he was the best of the bunch, mud or no mud. He stole the morningline favorite distinction from Verrazano, at 7-2, with a blazing work Monday that left McGaughey smiling wide. But what was sunny and warm weather early in the
week transformed to chilly and rainy by the end, harming Orbâ€™s chances. Orb is owned by Ogden Mills Phipps and Stuart Janney III, who are first cousins and prominent members of the Phipps racing empire. Six generations of the family have been involved in the sport, gathering victories in the biggest races except the Kentucky Derby.

State winner seeks votes for national poster contest BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — A bicycle poster created by a Port Angeles fifth-grader has advanced to a national contest — and needs Internet votes to win the top prize. A poster by Ruby Harris, who attends Dry Creek Elementary, won first place in the Washington state portion of the Fifth Grade National Poster Contest. Ruby has advanced to the national competition Ruby — and needs votes on a Facebook contest page to win prizes for herself and her school. Votes will be accepted until 2 p.m. Tuesday at www.facebook.com/ SarisCycleRacks. Posters are not marked with entrants’ names, but Ruby’s poster is No. 16 in the Fifth Grade Poster Contest folder. Another Port Angeles student, Jordyn Ebalo of Franklin Elementary Jordyn School, won the state’s second prize. Jordyn took home a helmet, a bike light and a bell. The state’s third-place winner was a student at Little Mountain Elementary School in Mount Vernon. The contest — sponsored by Saris
Cycling Group, a manufacturer of bicycle racks and cycling training products — asked students to create a poster that answers the question, “Why do you think bikes make life better?” Ruby’s entry features a bike leaning up against a tree on a windy autumn day, with butterflies, birds and woodland creatures enjoying the outdoors. The winner of the national contest will receive a three-day/two-night trip for two to Washington, D.C., during the 2014 National Bike Summit, including airfare and lodging. (In related news, a new campaign in Jefferson County co-sponsored by Peninsula Daily News is promoting biking and walking, especially to school, with a kickoff meeting this coming Thursday, May 9. See the “Step On It” ad on Page C2 today.)
‘The Hub System’ As the state winner, Ruby received a Schwinn bicycle, a Lazer Sport helmet, a bike light from Planet Bike and an “I Bike WA” bike bell from the Bicycle Alliance of Washington. If Ruby’s poster is selected as the national winner, Dry Creek Elementary School will receive bike parking for 20 bikes and “The Hub System” — an active transportation tracking system that can help the school implement a walking and biking incentive program.

Feline-friendly techniques at the vetâ€™s IN THE PAST, Iâ€™ve been less nervous about air travel than I have been about my catsâ€™ veterinary appointments. And thereâ€™s a reason for it: Controlling a catâ€™s fear of the veterinary hospital has been for many years something I couldnâ€™t manage. Until recently, that is. With wellness checkups for my cats Ilario and Mariposa on the calendar, I reviewed my plan of action and prepared for V-Day. Everything went perfectly. The cats traveled quietly in their carriers, were relaxed if not exactly happy at the veterinarianâ€™s, passed their wellness exams with flying colors and settled back into their routines at home without a hiccup. What did I do? I started by putting the carriers out two days early and setting them in the room where the cats like sunning themselves. That meant no running when the carriers appeared. My carriers are also of a style designed just for cats by behaviorists. Theyâ€™re roomy and sturdy, and they break down easily in the exam room â€” the top can be removed, so the cat can remain comfortable and secure in the â€œbedâ€?

treated as if they are small dogs, and Iâ€™m so glad to see so many veterinary practices becoming felinefriendly. Youâ€™ll find guidelines for pet owners and veterinary practices at The CATalyst Councilâ€™s website, catalyst council.org.
Q&A â€” with Dr. Marty Becker and Gina Spadafori Q: To my sorrow, I recently had to say goodbye to a cat I adopted nearly 20 years ago, the last of two littermates rescued from a restaurant Dumpster near my veterinarianâ€™s office. I am missing my warm fuzzies, and I would like to adopt two cats again, but this time a kitten and an adult cat, as I am aware that there are a lot of both needing homes. Is there a preferable sequence in this sort of adoption? In other words, what is likely to result in an easier adjustment: adopting a kitten first or an adult cat? How much time should I allow between adoptions, or is it OK to adopt at the same time? â€” K.G, via email
A: Since cats are generally slower to adapt to new surroundings than kittens are, the best way to go, in theory, is to adopt a cat first, then a kitten, or both at once. Both at once, in fact, may be easiest on both cats, since neither will be feeling as if thereâ€™s an interloper on its turf, and your home will be new territory for each of them. In practice, the order and timing depends on the pets themselves. In a well-managed, progressive shelter, youâ€™ll find help from staff and volunteers who can advise you on the personalities of potential pets and the possibilities of pairings. Your home setup will help with adjustments. Many cats need to be fed away from each other, and some wonâ€™t share water bowls or feline drinking fountains. As for litter boxes, behaviorists typically recommend one box for each cat, plus one additional box. These guidelines will help the cats share space and help prevent litter-box avoidance, which is by far the top behavior complaint of cat owners.
The Buzz â€” with Dr. Marty Becker and Gina Spadafori â– Pet-foods brands including California Natural, EVO, Healthwise, Innova and Karma are part of an expanded recall by Natura Pet Foods that includes all its dry foods and treats with expiration dates before and including March 24, 2013.

Chuck Preble Preble has been instrumental in the construction of new segments of the Olympic Discovery Trail, especially the latest stretch between 10th Street in Port Angeles and Lower Elwha Road, according to Port Angeles City Council member Brooke Nelson. â€œWithout his drive, man-
agement acumen and keen leadership skills, the section of trail traversing the old Milwaukee Railroad grade may not have been accomplished until many years later,â€? Nelson said. Preble prepared multiple grant proposals, established an Adopt-a-Trail system, co-wrote a handbook and serves as vice president of the Peninsula Trails Coalition. He said many individuals, businesses and local governments have assisted in the expansion of the ODT. â€œNever underestimate the value of a volunteer,â€? Preble said. â€œThe community wanted that trail to happen, and whatever we needed, somehow it was made to work.â€?
Shawnna and Dan Rigg Shawnna Rigg took over the Sequim youth baseball league when it was on the brink of collapse about six years ago, Sequim-area real estate broker Mike McAleer told the audience at the award ceremonies. â€œDan joined her as the go-to guy for the league, and together, they saved it to ensure its stability today,â€? McAleer said. Without government assistance, the Riggs built a softball field that draws teams to Sequim from all over the region. The couple also are involved with the Sequim Irrigation Festival and volunteer at the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula and food bank in Sequim.

Relish cormorants’ breeding plumage A GROUP OF large birds passing overhead isn’t always a flock of geese. If the birds are flying in a long line instead of a V-shaped wedge, they are probably cormorants. Throughout fall and winter, cormorants are a familiar sight along Northwest shores. Where there are docks, pilings and any other available perch in the water, you are sure to find them. There are three cormorant species in Washington, and it is possible to see all three in one day, depending on where you happen to be birding. Double-crested cormorants are the most common and are found not only on saltwater but also on freshwater lakes on both sides of the state. During the nesting season, this large cormorant moves from its winter habitat on protected inland waters and can be found throughout the San Juans and along the coast.

Closer to home, check out any cormorants you see on the ferry dolphins during the summer, as the Brandt’s have been known to nest on them. We become accustomed to seeing the lone cormorant perched with wings outspread and hardly miss them until they are gone. They haven’t gone far and are still in Northwest waters. Look carefully at those you do see at this time of the year. It will be your best opportunity to see them in their breeding plumage when they are really special.

SEQUIM — Working in conjunction with Peninsula Trail Coalition coordinators Cherie Pickett and Rich James, members of the Sequim Sunrise Rotary Club took on the project of cleaning the Volunteer Creek Trail Bridge.

Water for the project was provided by the Clallam County Road Department.
The face patch below the eyes becomes a deep reddish color, while their coal-black bodies take on a green or purple iridescence, depending on how the sun strikes the feathers. More spring finery includes the crest they sport as well as white flank patches. These are easy to spot whether the bird is flying, diving or just floating on the water.

Nana in Ohio Dear Nana: I’d suggest that Lana’s mother tell her daughter that if she wants to continue on Facebook, she had better keep Mom and Grandma as friends.

Paying kids for every Snooping chore not a good idea can avert MY HUSBAND INSISTS on paying the kids, a 10-year-old boy and 8-year-old girl, for every little chore. I think they need to do some things without pay. How can I convince him that he is setting himself up for a bad time in their teens when it comes to money and chores?
NYC parents We have three kids who have specific chores listed on a chart on the kitchen pantry. Each one receives some form of payment for doing a job if it is done correctly the first time. The youngest is 4, so he mainly gets stickers that add up to an event that either his dad or I, or both, take him to. For example, when he reaches 10 star stickers, he can choose a movie or activity for us to attend. However, the older two,

Can you help? Our 18-year-old son has an academic scholarship to utilize at various colleges of his choice. He recently mentioned that he was not interested in going to college but to a trade school. His dad and several relatives are quite upset. If this is really what he wants to do, I think he should. How do I convince other people to allow him to pursue his own choice without feeling guilty for letting others down?
TODAYâ€™S COLUMN IS for every woman whoâ€™s dated a man who turned out to be married. Or a felon. Or a con artist. Itâ€™s for every man who discovered the woman who seemed too good to be true was. Or was a he. Or was looking for a green card or a sugar daddy. The world is a dangerous place, and itâ€™s not a bad idea to do a little snooping before you get too involved. Hereâ€™s some advice on how to do that from Candy, Ernie and Dottie.
