Is it tsunami debris or trash from Japan? Beachcombers finding items, asking questions BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

Beachcombers on Olympic Peninsula shorelines are finding items with Japanese markings and asking the question, “Is this tsunami debris?” In December, oceanographers Curtis Ebbesmeyer and Jim Ingraham announced they had identified the first tsunami debris

PA Elks attempting to recoup $4,000 BY TOM CALLIS PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — Dazzled by Twilight, the North Olympic Peninsula’s premiere store for everything Twilight-related is gone, but its merchandise can still be grabbed at rock-bottom prices, at least for one more day. The Elks Naval Lodge continues its sale Saturday of Twilight memorabilia it seized from the store that closed in December while owing the club about $4,000 in rent and utilities. The liquidation sale was first held last Friday and Saturday at the lodge located at First and Lincoln streets in downtown Port Angeles. Arlene Blume, Elks club manager, said there’s still plenty of merchandise left, and the sale will be held once more from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. this Saturday.

New owner takes over at Olympic Raft & Kayak BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — After 20 years at the helm of Olympic Raft & Kayak, Dave King is handing the paddle to a new owner.

The Texas-born Mr. McPherson was a recent graduate of the University of Texas School of Law when he drove his old Buick to Washington in 1956 to begin working as assistant general counsel for the Democratic Policy Committee chaired by fellow Texan Johnson, then the Senate majority leader. Mr. McPherson, who served as the committee’s general counsel from 1961 to ’63, was deputy undersecretary of the Army for international affairs and assistant secretary of state for educational and cultural affairs before moving over to the White House as understudy to White House special counsel Lee White in 1965.


A year later, McPherson became special counsel to the president. Beginning that summer, he “crafted all of the president’s major addresses,” Robert Dallek wrote in his 1998 Johnson biography Flawed Giant, describing Mr. McPherson as an “evocative writer with a keen feel for Johnson’s style of speaking and desire for terse, spare prose that included ‘a little poetry’ and some alliteration.”

1937 (75 years ago) Master showmen of the basketball court, George Johnson’s House of David barnstormers, will meet the local Red’s Taxi club tonight. Johnson is the coach and manager of the House of David, and he umpires in the American Association during the summer. Standout on the team is Art Stoelting, who is one inch short of 7 feet tall — which makes him the next thing to a human Empire State Building. The House of David — all the players sport full beards — will play tonight at 8 in the Roosevelt High School gym in Port Angeles, and is on a 60-game tour of the Northwest and British Columbia.

1962 (50 years ago) Lt. Thomas S. Thorpe of Port Angeles will be pilot of one of two helicopters flying Prince Philip of Great Britain on a tour of British Guiana.

Thorpe is on the staff of the 1370th Photo Mapping Wing in Guiana, mapping the South American coastline. The wing is stationed at U.S.-built Atkinson Airport in Georgetown, British Guiana. Bad roads and numerous rivers prevent easy transportation across land, so the helicopters will take Philip, husband of Queen Elizabeth II, to four population centers of the crown colony.

A3 Briefly: Nation Ariz. governor gives Romney endorsement PHOENIX — Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer endorsed Mitt Romney for president during her appearance Sunday morning on “Meet the Press.” Brewer said she viewed Romney as the most electable candidate to challenge President Barack Obama and that she made Brewer her conclusion after meeting with the candidates and after a debate this week in Arizona. Brewer drew headlines for a confrontation recently with President Obama on an airport tarmac. She was photographed wagging a finger at the president after greeting him and handing him a handwritten note. Brewer described the exchange as being driven by Obama’s dissatisfaction with her book, though the president described the exchange as being “not a big deal.”

A lawyer for the nurses tells the New York Post that hospital guidelines say a newborn can’t leave the ward without written permission. The nurses say Kennedy attacked them and injured them. Kennedy has been charged with harassment and child endangerment in the Jan. 7 altercation. Kennedy and his wife said in a statement that the charges are “absurd.” He was arraigned Thursday.

7 troops hurt, 2 dead as Afghans protest Demonstrations at U.S. base escalate over Quran burning BY DEB RIECHMANN AND RAHIM FAIEZ THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

KABUL, Afghanistan — Demonstrators hurled grenades at a U.S. base in northern Afghanistan, and a gun battle left two Afghans dead and seven NATO troops injured Sunday in the escalating crisis over the burning of Muslim holy books at an American airfield. More than 30 people have been killed, including four U.S. troops, in six days of unrest. Still, the top U.S. diplomat in Afghanistan said the violence would not change Washington’s course.

‘Tensions running high’ “Tensions are running very high here, and I think we need to let things calm down, return to a more normal atmosphere, and

then get on with business,” Ambassador Ryan Crocker told CNN’s “State of the Union.” “This is not the time to decide that Crocker we’re done here,” he said. “We have got to redouble our efforts. We’ve got to create a situation in which alQaida is not coming back.” The attack on the base came a day after two U.S. military advisers — a lieutenant colonel and a major — were found dead after being shot in the head in their office at the Interior Ministry in the heart of the capital. The building is one of the city’s most heavily guarded buildings, and the slayings raised doubts about

safety as coalition troops continue their withdrawal. The incident prompted NATO, Britain and France to recall hundreds of advisers from all Afghan ministries in the capital. The advisers are key to helping improve governance and preparing the country’s security forces to take on more responsibility. A manhunt was under way for the main suspect in the shooting — an Afghan man who worked as a driver for an office on the same floor as the advisers who were killed, Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqi said.

Taliban sympathizer? The Taliban claimed the shooter was one of their sympathizers and that an accomplice helped him get into the compound to kill the Americans in retaliation for the Quran burnings. Afghanistan’s defense and interior ministers were to visit Washington this week, but they called off the trip to consult with other Afghan officials.

Briefly: World Colombia rebels are freeing last 12 hostages BOGOTA, Colombia — Colombia’s main rebel group said Sunday it is freeing the last of the government captives it has held for years, and will abandon the practice of kidnapping. The leftist Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia said on its website that it will free 10 “prisoners of war” and said they are the last in their control. The government said the rebel group holds at least 12. A liberation could help advance toward negotiations to end the long civil conflict since the government says the group known as the FARC must free all the hostages it holds before talks can start. However, the FARC did not say it was abandoning hostilities. The rebels announced Dec. 27 that they would free six of the captives, but said a month later that they were delaying the release because of a government “militarization” of the area where it said the release was planned. Neither the earlier statement nor the new one specified the location or set a date.

Last Iraq casualty BAGHDAD — The U.S. military has recovered the remains of the last U.S. service member missing in Iraq, his family said Sunday. At about 1 a.m. Sunday, a U.S. officer knocked on the door

of the family home in Ann Arbor, Mich., with news that Army Staff Sgt. Ahmed Altaie was confirmed dead, said Entifadh Qanbar. Altaie was the last soldier unaccounted for in Iraq. Altaei’s brother, Hathal Altaei, speaking by phone from his parents’ home, said the military had confirmed his brother’s identity through a DNA test. “There is closure now, but we still want to know: Was he killed, or did he die by natural causes in the hands of the group?” Qanbar said. In 2006, gunmen abducted Altaie, an Iraqi-born reservist who was 41, after he’d sneaked out of the Green Zone in Baghdad to visit his new Iraqi wife.

Shoes behind death LONDON — U.S. war correspondent Marie Colvin was killed while trying to retrieve her shoes so she could flee an army bombardment in the Syrian city of Homs, her employer The Sunday Times said. Colvin and a group of other journalists had followed the local custom of removing their footwear before entering a building in the besieged city, which was being used as a rebel press center, it said. The journalists were on the ground floor when rockets hit the building, the paper said. Colvin ran to get her shoes. But as she reached them, a rocket hit the front of the building, burying her and French photographer Remi Ochlik in debris and killing them both. The Associated Press

Carnival apologizes after guests robbed in Mexico PENINSULA DAILY NEWS SOURCES

PUERTO VALLARTA, Mexico — Twenty-two passengers from Carnival Splendor were robbed in Mexico while on a trip to see a nature trail after landing in Puerto Vallarta, the cruise line said. Valuables, passports and other identification were stolen from the guests during the Thursday port call. “There were no injuries and all guests returned safely to the ship,” the cruise line said in a statement. The tourists were part of a weeklong cruise that left California’s Port of Long Beach on Feb. 19 and returned Sunday morning, Carnival spokesman Vance Gulliksen said. Carnival suspended the guided tour where the robbery took place, the Miami-based cruise line said. “Carnival is working with

guests to reimburse them for lost valuables and assist with lost passports or other forms of identification,” the cruise line said. The Carnival Splendor can carry more than 3,000 passengers and operates year-round from Long Beach. In 2010, an engine fire aboard the ship caused it to lose power, leaving passengers to spend four days in the dark to dine on Spam and hot dogs. Only one cruise line had decided to suspend stops in Puerto Vallarta due to escalating violence in Mexico between rival drug gangs. That decision was made by Santa Clarita-based Princess Cruises, which is owned by Carnival. But Gulliksen said that Carnival did not plan “any itinerary changes as it relates to Puerto Vallarta at this time.”

Carnival crew member leaps from Magic THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

GALVESTON, Texas — A crew member of the cruise ship Magic was rescued after leaping overboard as the ship was returning to Galveston, Carnival told the Galveston County Daily News. Carnival didn’t say what prompted the jump. The man was seen jumping overboard about 11 p.m. Saturday in the Gulf of Mexico, about 100 miles southeast of Galveston. The Coast Guard said the crewman was wearing a life vest with a strobe light attached, making the rescue a swift one.

ON OSCAR WEEKEND, the reallife action stars of “Act of Valor” bested Hollywood’s pretend heroes. The Relativity Media action flick, starring real, active-duty U.S. Navy SEALs, topped the weekend box office, earning $24.7 million according to studio estimates Sunday. That was a strong opening for a unique film made in collaboration with the Navy, Lionsgate’s “Tyler Perry’s Good Deeds,” a more dramatic offering for the consistently popular Perry, opened with a healthy $16 million. The thriller “Safe House” earned $11.4 million, bringing its cumulative total to $98.1 million.

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION plans to spend $51.5 million this year in its continuing battle to protect the Great Lakes from destructive Asian carp. The carp strategy for 2012 includes first-time water sampling to determine whether bighead and silver carp have reached vulnerable sections of Lakes Michigan, Erie and Huron. Other planned measures include stepped-up netting and trapping of Asian carp in the Illinois River, as well as high-tech monitoring to determine whether an electric barrier near Chicago is adequately blocking the carp’s path to Lake Michigan.

THE NORTHERN IRISH descendants of a surgeon who died on the Titanic nearly 100 years ago are appealing for a benefactor to purchase a soon-to-be-auctioned letter he wrote from the doomed ship — and to return it to the city where the vessel was built. A two-page note John Edward Simpson wrote to his mother before the ship sank in April 1912 could fetch at least $50,000 at the auction later this week in Long Island, N.Y. Simpson’s great-nephew John Martin of Belfast said Simpson’s daughterin-law gave it to a Titanic enthusiast 15 years ago and that they would love to buy it back if they could afford it.

SOUTH AFRICANS HEAVED a sigh of relief Sunday as Nelson Mandela was discharged from a hospital in good health after a laparoscopy, a surgical procedure in which a camera is inserted into the body to check abdomen or pelvis problems. South African President Jacob Zuma said in a statement that the 93-year-old former South African president was sent home after the procedure revealed no serious health problems. He spent the night in the hospital. South African officials did not detail the reasons for the laparoscopy other than to say it was a related to a longstanding abdominal condition.

Trash?: Early debris will have large surface area CONTINUED FROM A1 Earlier this month, the Japanese Consulate in Seattle confirmed that a large black plastic float found near Neah Bay last fall is a Japanese-manufactured item used in shellfish farming and likely came from the area hit by the tsunami. However, they could not confirm whether it was torn from its shellfish bed by the tsunami or had broken loose because before that time. The float arrived in late October or early November, between two beach cleanup events held by Surfrider International on a Makahowned, controlled access beach near Neah Bay. It came ashore exactly where and when Ebbesmeyer and Ingraham’s model predicted the first tsunami-related items should start arriving.

Their model showed that lightweight items with a lot of surface area exposed to the wind, such as the big black float, can travel as fast as 20 miles per day and should start arriving a year before the heavier, ocean current-borne debris.

Beachcombers guide Ebbesmeyer, who continues to track the debris, said Tuesday he is preparing a guide to help beachcombers recognize the difference between trash and tsunami debris. When it is ready, it will be posted at his website, at http://beachcombersalert. The people who found the first float last fall were members of Surfrider International, a group of surfers, paddleboarders and kayakers interested in keeping beaches and coastal waters clean. The longtime Peninsula

surfers said they immediately recognized the floats were unique after their 30 years of cleaning beaches in the area. Arnold Schouten of Port Angeles has been cleaning North Olympic Peninsula beaches for more than two decades and is a member of Surfriders. At least a half-dozen nearly identical black floats were found in the Neah Bay and LaPush areas in November and December.

Following the model “The way they’re coming, all of a sudden, is a better indicator that they are following Ebbesmeyer’s model,” Schouten said. The first things beachcombers should look for — items that have a high probability as having come from the Japanese tsunami — are large floats, small boats and anything else with a high profile above

the water that can be caught by the wind, he said. Right now, the vast majority of the items found on the beaches are just trash from the Japanese fishing fleet that harvests the cold waters of the Northern Pacific, or simple beach trash that floated away from Japan years ago and finally has found its way to the Eastern Pacific. Over the years, the Olympic Peninsula chapter of Surfrider Foundation have collected hundreds of crab pot floats, round black fishing floats and trash from Asia, Schouten said. Recently, a pile of lumber with Asian writing was found on an area beach, but it was raw, unused lumber that probably fell off of a cargo ship, he said. Small, round black floats with two eyes are commonly used by the fishing fleets and have been found on area beaches for

the Clallam County Board of Health last week that his office is tracking tsunami debris, “especially for the public health ramifications. He said that solid waste may arrive in volumes, “and probably the most tragic thing we might see is actual human remains wash up on shores over the next year.” He referred to the discoveries of human feet in tennis shoes in the Strait of Juan de Fuca and surrounding areas. “That’s a phenomenon we’ve seen in the Straits is that human remains in knotted tennis shoes can persist for years in the marine environment,” he said. “So we’re preparing for that.”

The debris field has been broken up by wave and storm action and is no longer forming large rafts of debris that was seen in the weeks after the tsunami. Those early debris fields included entire houses, boats, cars and hundreds of black floats like those found on area beaches.

PT whittles school chief finalists to 4 position at a textbook company in New Jersey and is from the Pacific Northwest. â– Ellen Perconti is from Clarkston, which is just over the state line from Lewiston, Idaho. She serves as the director of curriculum and assessment in the Lewiston Independent School District.


PORT TOWNSEND — The Port Townsend School Board has chosen four superintendent finalists. One of the finalists, Mellody Matthes, had been a finalist during a Port Townsend superintendent search in 2010 who dropped out of consideration to take an assistant superintendent position in the Tukwila School District. The other three finalists are: ■John R. Alberghini of Waterbury Center, Vt., who is the superintendent of Chittenden East Supervisory Union in Richmond, Vt. ■ David Engle of Lawrenceville, N.J., who is not employed at present, School Board President Jennifer James-Wilson said. Engle holds a doctorate, and his experience includes work in North Platte, Neb., as a school superintendent, said James-Wilson said, adding that he had taken a


Port Townsend Schools Superintendent Gene Laes is leaving, but four finalists for his job were chosen.

Selected Saturday The School Board selected the four finalists from 23 applicants during a special meeting that ended late Saturday afternoon. The new superintendent is to start in July, following the departure of Gene Laes after two years as superintendent. Board members will interview all four finalists during a closed executive session this Saturday, James-Wilson said. Each finalist will visit the district and meet the public the following week, she said. Matthes had been cho-

sen as one of three finalists for the position during a search in 2010, after Tom Opstad, who served in the position for five years, announced he would leave to lead the Aberdeen School District. Matthes had dropped out of consideration, along with another finalist, leaving the School Board with one finalist to consider. The board elected instead to offer another year at the helm to Laes, then serving as interim superintendent, who accepted at a continued annual salary of $96,000, working four days each week. At the time, Matthes — who was then the executive director of human resources at the Oak Harbor School District — said the Tukwila district offered her a salary “significantly higher� than the $120,000 a year offered by Port Townsend, and the district had been pressuring her for a decision.

Opstad had been earning was earning about $115,000 a year in Port Townsend. Saturday’s interviews will begin at 8:30 a.m., James-Wilson said, adding that the location had not been chosen yet.

Not open to public The meeting will not be open to the general public, but staff and community observers will be invited to the executive session to share their input with the board. Each of the four candidates then will be assigned a day to visit the district from Monday, March through Thursday, March 8. The board plans to make its final decision sometime in March. Superintendent search consultants McPherson & Jacobson will assist in the review of finalists.

Solar array electrifies airport Man arrested after ‘hog splitter’ attack outside of Sequim BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT TOWNSEND — A solar energy array now operational at the Jefferson County International Airport makes the small airfield the only airport in the state with an operational reliance on solar power. “This project has been in the works for more than two years,� said Power Trip Energy Corp. president Andy Cochrane, whose company built the solar array. “It is now complete and we are celebrating,�


Runway, navigational lights The project generates enough energy to operate the airport’s runway and navigational lights as well as electricity for one of the tenant buildings, Cochrane said. The 17-kilowatt, 88-panel, 1,400-square-foot array is located on a 10,000-square-foot patch of land at the airport’s west end, near state Highway 20. It connects to the navigational beacon’s power shed and is surrounded by a 7-foot-high fence in an area that is not directly accessible from the main airport area. Power Trip will maintain the property inside the fence while the port will mow the grass outside the fence. The port is leasing the land. In return it gets free power.

Expect to sell array Power Trip Energy and a consortium of 12 investors — the Jefferson Solar Group — have funded the $150,000 project and expect to get a healthy


Andy Cochran of Power Trip Energy with his solar power array. return when the array is sold to the Port of Port Townsend, most likely in 2020, Cochrane said. The array is expected to generate power for another 20 years after that, Cochrane said. The investors in the project, many of whom toured the facility last week, were motivated both by profit and the desire to help the community. “It was exciting to have the opportunity to invest in a community project like this,� said investor Carla Main. “We believe in alternative energy, but it was also great that we will get a good return on our investment. It doesn’t just make sense environmentally. It also makes good economic sense.� The array was built in conjunction with the port as part of a state tax incentive program

that encourages partnership of solar developers with local governments. In the last three weeks, the array has generated 775 kilowatt hours, which is equivalent to the power needed for five small homes, Cochrane said. Cochrane said there isn’t a lot that can go wrong. “In over 250 installations, we haven’t ever had a mechanical failure,� he said. “The only thing that could go wrong is that if energy costs go down enough to make solar less financially advantageous. But I think that energy costs are going to go up.�

SEQUIM — A Sequim-area man was arrested Sunday after allegedly attacking a Clallam County Sheriff’s deputy with a huge meat cleaver called a “hog splitter,� being tasered by the deputy and escaping through a window. Shane Michael Wheeler, 28, was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence, assault of a law enforcement officer, malicious mischief and resisting arrest, Ron Cameron, chief criminal deputy for the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office, said Sunday.

Canine partner helped Wheeler was captured by Port Angeles Officer Kevin Miller and his canine partner, Jag, after a brief multi-agency manhunt by Clallam County deputies, and members of the Sequim and Port Angeles police departments, Cameron said. The suspect was taken to Olympic Medical Center for treatment of injuries received from his contact with Jag, and was booked into Clallam County jail, Cameron said. Deputy Ken Oien, the deputy who was attacked after responding to a domestic violence incident at a home on Meadow Drive near Sequim, was not injured in the attack, Cameron said. According to police reports, a woman called police at 1:50 p.m. Saturday and reported being

Vendors happy with home show numbers BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201D; No one took home the two top prizes in the 30th Annual KONP Home Show door prize contest, but exhibitors won the day as visitors poured in to the home improvement event and seemed in the mood to spend.

If they do not get the horses back, the animals will be sent to reputable horse rescue organizations for treatment and recovery.

Officialsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; trip to foster Victoria tourism met on Feb. 25, 2011, but that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the last time representatives of the two cities met. Last summer, city of Victoria parks staff met with their counterparts in Port Angeles and toured the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public spaces.


PORT ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A year has passed since the Port Angeles and Victoria city councils held a joint meeting in the provincial capital, but they certainly havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lost touch. On Tuesday, Mayor Cherie Kidd and City Manager Kent Myers will be heading across the water for a series of meetings in Victoria intended to foster Port Angelesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; cross-border relationship. They will meet with government and tourism officials and continue to work to promote Port Angeles as a destination for residents of south Vancouver Island.

Showcasing Port Angeles â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to continue to showcase Port Angeles and let people know about us,â&#x20AC;? Kidd said. Myers said it is one of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goals to build a working relation-

ship with Victoria around issues they both care about, including tourism. Victoria Mayor Dean Fortin said his city shares that goal, and places a lot of value on such meetings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no substitute for faceto-face,â&#x20AC;? he said. Fortin said Victoria is looking at making some changes to its waterfront and is interested in learning more about Port Angelesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; waterfront redevelopment plan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot we can learn from you guys, and I hope there is something we can offer Port Angeles.â&#x20AC;? The councils from both cities

Richard Bonine, Port Angeles recreation services manager, then made a similar trip to Victoria in October as part of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being called a â&#x20AC;&#x153;department exchange.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good to know what other cities are doing,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They do the same jobs we do.â&#x20AC;? Myers said additional staff exchanges may happen later this year. The Olympic Peninsula Tourism Commission also is helping to promote the area to Vancouver Island. An advertising campaign aimed at Victoria-area residents is continuing in its third-straight year.

Whiskey Bend Road due to be closed for 4 weeks for repairs Road to Olympic Hot Springs had been reopened Jan. 11 PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; After a brief reopening, Whiskey Bend Road will be closed again. The 4.5-mile road that connects Olympic Hot Springs Road to the Whiskey Bend trailhead had been reopened to the public Jan. 11 after it had been closed to vehicles for more than a year following extensive damage caused by winter storms in December 2010.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heavy trucks and machinery will be in use, necessitating a full closure to all vehicle and pedestrian entry.â&#x20AC;? BARB MAYNES Olympic National Park spokeswoman

Four-week closure It will be closed again Tuesday for an estimated four weeks, said Barb Maynes, Olympic National Park spokeswoman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heavy trucks and machinery will be in use, necessitating a full closure to all vehicle and pedestrian entry,â&#x20AC;? Maynes said. Barnard Construction Co. crews fixed the worst section of the road at Milepost 1 as part of the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dam removal contract. But now another section of damaged road, which is at Milepost 1.7,

must be repaired, Maynes said. That will done by another contractor. Cherokee Construction of Vancouver, Wash., has been awarded a contract not to exceed $190,000, with the final cost to be determined once the amount of work needed is known, Maynes said. At Milepost 1, part of the road surface had caved off to the side, and the

foundation had been eroded, necessitating road closure, Maynes said. The damage at Milepost 1.7 was not as severe, with the foundation damaged but not so extensively that road closure was needed, Maynes said.

Tear out road and rebuilt it During repair, the contractor will excavate the damaged portion of the road and replace it. All areas west of Whiskey Bend Road are closed because of Glines Canyon Dam removal work. Barnard Construction is demolishing the Glines Canyon and Elwha dams through a $26.9 million contract. The work is being done as part of the $325 million Elwha River restoration project to return the river to its wild state. Webcam images of Glines Canyon Dam removal and Lake Mills, as well as work at the Elwha Dam, are available at

Support- Cody ers say the state is protected by its existing conscience exemptions and note the bill has a self-destruct clause nullifying it in the event it were found to conflict with federal law. They say it would simply ensure that women in Washington — one of four states to have legalized abortion before the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision — continue to have easy access to abortions once federal health care reforms are enacted in 2014. “Washington state has historically been in the forefront for women’s reproductive rights,” said state Rep. Eileen Cody, D-West Seattle, who sponsored the measure. “We’re just trying to maintain the status quo.” Cody and other abortionrights advocates say the bill is necessary because of the uncertain status of abortion coverage under the federal Affordable Care Act, the implementation of which is a work in progress.

Remembering a Lifetime

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Monday, February 27, 2012 PAGE


Big Oil, environmentalists need pact AN EMAIL CAME in the other day with a subject line that I couldn’t ignore. It was from the oil economist, Phil Verleger, and it read: “Should the United States join OPEC?” That I had to open. Thomas Verleger’s basic message Friedman was that the knee-jerk debate we’re again having over who is responsible for higher oil prices fundamentally misses huge changes that have taken place in America’s energy output, making us again a major oil and gas producer — and potential exporter — with an interest in reasonably high but stable oil prices. From one direction, he says, we’re seeing the impact of the ethanol mandate put in place by President George W. Bush, which established fixed quantities of biofuels to be used in gasoline. When this is combined with improved vehicle fuel economy — in July, the auto industry agreed to achieve fleet averages of more than 50 miles per gallon by 2025 — it will inevitably drive down demand for gasoline and create

more surplus crude to export. Add to that, says Verleger, “the increase in oil production from offshore fields and unconventional sources in America,” and that exportable U.S. surplus could grow even bigger. Then, add the recent discoveries of natural gas deposits all over America, which will allow us to substitute gas for coal at power plants and become a natural gas exporter as well. Put it all together, says Verleger, and you can see why America “will want to consider joining with other energy-exporting countries, like those in OPEC, to sustain high oil prices. Such an effort would support domestic oil and gas production and give the U.S. a real competitive advantage over countries forced to pay high prices for imported energy — nations such as China, European Union members and Japan.” Indeed, Bloomberg News reported last week that “the U.S. is the closest it has been in almost 20 years to achieving energy self-sufficiency. . . . Domestic oil output is the highest in eight years. The U.S. is producing so much natural gas that, where the government warned four years ago of a critical need to boost imports, it now may approve an export terminal.” As a result, “the U.S. has reversed a two-decade-long

decline in energy independence, increasing the proportion of demand met from domestic sources over the last six years to an estimated 81 percent through the first 10 months of 2011.” This transformation could make the U.S. the world’s top energy producer by 2020, raise more tax revenue, free us from worrying about the Middle East, and, if we’re smart, build a bridge to a much cleaner energy future. All of this is good news, but it will come true at scale only if these oil and gas resources can be extracted in an environmentally sustainable manner. This can be done right, but we need a deal between environmentalists and the oil and gas industry to lock it in — now. Says Hal Harvey, an independent energy expert: “The oil and gas companies need to decide: Do they want to fight a bloody and painful war of attrition with local communities or take the lead in setting high environmental standards [particularly for “fracking,” the process used to extract all these new natural gas deposits] and then live up to them.” Higher environmental standards may cost more, but only incrementally, if at all, and they’ll make the industry and the environment safer.

Peninsula Voices Representation I was shocked when I read Sissi Bruch’s comment about relying on external organizations to “do what’s right for the general public” [“PA Council Stays Course on Lawsuit,” Feb. 9]. These organizations have a set of goals which, whatever their focus, is usually not in the interest of the general public. That’s why she was elected. She is my representative and she has an obligation to stand up to these groups for my benefit. We are a representative form of government. That means I don’t have to deal with these issues. I simply vote for the person who I think will do the best

job of dealing with them for me. If she intends to compromise that stewardship to support some external vocal minority, she may as well resign now because she won’t be around after the next election. Rex Springer, Port Angeles

Our kids are us A society that wants to “chase the kids away” has the wrong attitude. An adversarial instead of inclusive approach creates a divisive situation, contributing to the fragmentation of society. Next they’ll be threatening, arresting and jailing those kids.

In the case of natural gas, we need the highest standards for cleanup of land that is despoiled by gas extraction and to prevent leakage of gas either into aquifers or the atmosphere. Yes, “generating a kilowatthour’s worth of electricity with a natural gas turbine emits only about half as much CO2 as from a coal plant,” says Harvey, and that’s great. “But one molecule of leaked gas contributes as much to global warming as 25 molecules of burned gas. That means that if the system for the exploration, extraction, compression, piping and burning of natural gas leaks by even 2.5 percent, it is as bad as coal.” Hence, Harvey’s five rules for natural gas are: ■ Don’t allow leaky systems. ■ Use gas to phase out coal ■ Have sound well drilling and casing standards. ■ Don’t pollute the landscape with brackish or toxic water brought up by fracking. ■ Drill only where it is sensible. I’d add a sixth rule for crude oil. No one likes higher oil prices. But — perversely — the high price benefits America as we rapidly become a bigger oil producer and it ensures that investments will continue to flow into energy


efficient cars and trucks. If we were smart, we would establish today a floor price for any barrel of crude oil or gallon of gasoline sold or imported into America — and tax anything below it. A stable, sufficiently high floor price serves the environment, our technology investments and our energy productivity. As our producers succeed, we would become increasingly energy self-sufficient, keep a lot more dollars at home for our Treasury, stimulate innovation on renewables and drive down the global oil price that is the sole source sustaining Iran and other petro-dictators. But all of this depends on an understanding between the oil industry and the environmentalists. If President Barack Obama could pull that off, it would be a huge contribution to America’s security, economy and environment.

They are our kids; they are us. The transit official who wants to “deal” with them [Sequim Plans to Aim Classical Music at Loiterers,” Feb. 16] is just busting their chops for his own self-aggrandizement. Are these kids vandalizing, harassing or harming anyone? It’s just the same old authoritarianism that has divided society against its youth for ages and creates an “enemy” out of ourselves. As Pogo says, “We has seen the enemy and he is us.” By maintaining this attitude, fear is created. Tracy McCallum, Port Angeles

If Thatcher saw today’s conservatives IT’S A GOOD thing that the Margaret Thatcher we remember isn’t running for president as a Republican. A conservative icon, she Froma would nonetheHarrop less be tarred today as a “big government liberal,” “raiser of taxes,” “European socialist” and RINO, which stands for Republican in Name Only. The biographical movie “Iron Lady” centers on Thatcher’s late-life mental decline and flashes back only to the big scenes in her political career. This is entertainment, and so the movie understandably zeros in on her hectoring speeches, the great election night victory, terrorist attacks and, above all, the romance with her husband, Denis, who died in 2003. Meryl Streep wasn’t hired to play Thatcher conducting dry

discussions of Europe’s Exchange Rate Mechanism — though if any actress could make that cinematic, Streep could. Someone, an American perhaps, should do a movie about Thatcher’s less pictorial brand of conservatism. Like her American ally Ronald Reagan, also eventually claimed by Alzheimer’s disease, Thatcher saw her mission as reversing years of liberal excess rather than radically remaking the social compact. Thatcher didn’t believe that tax cuts would automatically pay for themselves with economic growth. That’s why she combined reducing Britain’s income-tax rates with a significantly higher value-added tax. A VAT is a kind of national sales tax. Thatcher explained the move as shifting taxation from earnings to spending. This was tax code surgery, not exorcism powered by magical thinking. Reagan’s 1986 tax reform paired reductions in income-tax rates to ending the tax break for capital gains. (The capital gains














tax has since been lowered to 15 percent.) When deficits started rising dramatically, Reagan faced the music and raised taxes 11 times, taking back half of his tax

And Medicare isn’t socialized medicine, either: It is socialized insurance. The government picks up the bills, but doctors and hospitals still work for themselves. Britain’s National Health Service is socialized medicine. The providers do work for the government. And Thatcher barely touched Thatcher a hair on it. Moreover, she defended it with cut. passion. In her book Margaret In current GOP presidential Thatcher: the Downing Street politics, former Massachusetts Years, she wrote this: Gov. Mitt Romney has toyed with “I believed that the NHS was the idea of a VAT-like system as a service of which we could genupart of larger reform. inely be proud.

Her mission, she said, was

merely to restore balance between business and organized labor. She also removed disincentives to work in Britain’s extravagant welfare programs, while leaving them intact. Today’s GOP base would brand these measures as weakwilled capitulation. And it would condemn a Thatcher-like candidate as a “Republican moderate.” Wonder what the Iron Lady would think watching the Republican debates, if her mind were all there. Thatcher would probably laugh, recalling how she’d have loved to have been called a “moderate” in the days of heavy lifting that made her a conservative hero.

March razor clam digs set Kalaloch finally to open in April PENINSULA DAILY NEWS AND NEWS SOURCES

OLYMPIA — Those morning clam digs state officials have promised are on the horizon in March. Also, North Olympic Peninsula’s Kalaloch Beach is scheduled to open for the first time in many months April 7-9. The beach is not included in the March digs. Fishery managers are planning a series of morning razor-clam digs in March and April on Washington’s ocean beaches as long as marine toxin tests show the clams are safe to eat. As usual, the final word on beach openings will be announced about a week before each dig is scheduled to start. “We’re announcing tentative dates now so people can get them on their calendars,” said Dan Ayres, coastal shellfish manager for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW). “We’ll confirm the dates once the test results are available.”

More digs later WDFW may announce additional digs in late April and early May at some beaches if enough clams are still available for harvest, Ayres said. Unlike previous openings this season, all digs planned in the months ahead are timed to coincide with morning low tides. No digging will be allowed on any beach after noon. Proposed beach openings, along with morning low tides, for upcoming digs are: ■ March 10, Saturday (7:39 a.m. -0.3.): Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis, Mocrocks. ■ March 11, Sunday (9:28 a.m. -0.4.): Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis, Mocrocks. ■ March 24, Saturday (8:25 a.m. +0.3.): Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis, Mocrocks. ■ March 25, Sunday (8:59 a.m., +0.3 ft.): Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks. ■ April 7, Saturday (7:36 a.m., -1.2 ft.): Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks, Kalaloch. ■ April 8, Sunday (8:23 a.m., -1.5 ft.): Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks, Kalaloch. ■ April 9, Monday (9:11 a.m., -1.5 ft.): Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Kalaloch. Ayres noted that the dig planned at Copalis on March 24 will coincide with the sixth annual Ocean Shores Razor Clam Festival, which includes a chowder cookoff and other events. Information on the festival is available at http://www. Kalaloch Beach, tentatively scheduled to open April 7-9, has been closed to digging all season due to a low abundance of clams. Located inside Olympic National Park, the beach is managed by the National Park Service in cooperation with WDFW. Under state law, diggers can take 15 razor clams per day, and are required to keep the first 15 they dig. Each digger’s clams must be kept in a separate container. All diggers age 15 or older must have a valid fishing license to harvest razor clams on any beach. Licensing options range from a three-day razor clam license to an annual combination fishing license, which can be purchased on WDFW’s website (https://fishhunt.dfw. and from license vendors around the state. Updated information on razor clam seasons is available on WDFW’s toll-free Shellfish Hotline at 888-562-5632.

PA girls earn 2A state berth Riders shock power River Ridge, 41-38 PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

TACOMA — Don’t bet against these underdogs. The Port Angeles Roughriders, who have barely had a taste of state since 2001, beat perennial 2A girls basketball state champion River Ridge 41-38 in a winner-to-state, loser-out regional con-

test Saturday at Mount Tahoma High School. The 10th-ranked Hawks of Lacey were third in state last year and had won the state title in three of the past five years. The Riders, meanwhile, missed the cut for the eight-team state tournament last year and last was at state in 2001 where they claimed fifth place at the 4A level. But the Riders (18-7) have a shot for a trophy in 2012 as they took a big lead in the first half against River Ridge (17-

8) and then held on for their lives in the fourth quarter after the Hawks rallied and took the lead for a short time. “We led the entire game until right at the end,” Port Angeles coach Michael Poindexter, who was recently voted the Olympic League’s coach of the year, said. The teams were tied 8-8 after one quarter but the Riders took what seemed like a commanding 25-16 lead at halftime and added a point advantage, 35-25, going into the final period. TURN



Pirates snag 2nd seed Peninsula to defend men’s title PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — The Peninsula College men’s basketball team is headed to the NWAACC Tournament to defend its title as the No. 2 seed after holding off Bellevue 86-84 on Saturday night. It was standing-room-only as Peninsula College fans packed the Pirate gym to watch the North Division finale matching the NWAACC’s fifthranked Pirates against sixthranked Bellevue — and it was quite a show. With the student section on its feet and Bellevue leading 84-83, Tyler Funk found Daniel Sims open under the basket, and the freshman from Gold Coast, Australia, put it in for an 85-84 Pirate lead with 32 seconds to go. The Pirate defense came up with a stop and Bellevue was forced to foul. Dudley Ewell hit the second of two free throws and it was an 86-84 Peninsula lead with five seconds to go that held up. With the huge crowd hanging on every move, the Bulldogs got off a shot with time running out and the Pirates emerged with a victory — and the No. 2 seed into the 2012 NWAACC Basketball Championships. Peninsula (23-4) will open against Clackamas (16-10) at 10 a.m. Saturday at the Toyota Center in Kennewick in Game 1 of the 16-team, four-day NWAACC Tournament. TURN

Neah Bay girls head back to state Red Devils earn berth for sixth straight year at 1B tournament PENINSULA DAILY NEWS


Neah Bay’s Blaire Hill (with ball) competes with Grace Academy players in regional action Saturday night.

MOUNTLAKE TERRACE — The Neah Bay girls basketball team is back at state for the sixth year in a row. The Red Devils already are one of the top eight 1B teams in state as they pounded Grace Academy 64-26, the second time they have dominated Grace in the past two weeks, in the regionals Saturday night at Mountlake Terrace High School. There was no question early who was going to win this game as the Red Devils took 20-8 firstquarter and 40-10 halftime leads. Neah Bay, a perfect 20-0 during a phenomenal season, will open state Thursday against defending champion Colton at 3:45 p.m. in the first round at Spokane Arena. Tournament officials must have a sick sense of humor because the Red Devils lost to Colton 67-34 in the first round last year. Colton was the only team to beat Neah Bay, which captured fourth place in Spokane, its best finish at state in history. Colton is 23-0 going into the tourney.

The Red Devils tuned up for the defending champs by easily getting by Grace Academy. Everyone played, and all but one scored, for Neah Bay as Courtney Winck and Cherish Moss shared scoring honors with 14 points each. Cierra Moss added 12 while Winck led on the boards with five rebounds. Cherish Moss was a terror for Grace Academy on the floor as she ended up with 10 steals. Cierra Moss, meanwhile, had a game-high five assists. Both the Neah Bay boys and girls teams qualified for the 1B state tournaments. The Red Devil boys open state play Thursday against Mount Rainier Lutheran at 10:30 a.m. at Spokane Arena. Last year, Mount Rainier Lutheran went two-and-out at state. 1B Regionals Neah Bay 64, Grace Academy 26 Grace Academy 8 2 6 10— 26 Neah Bay 20 20 15 9— 64 Individual scoring Grace Academy (26) Emme 2, J.

UW women win 34th straight over WSU THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SEATTLE — June Daugherty was at the helm when Washington started its astounding streak of dominance over rival Washington State. Now that she has switched sides, she’ll likely be waiting another season to end 17 years of Washington wins. “I started it, and hopefully someday we’ll finish it,” said Daugherty, in her fifth year coaching the Cougars.

Regina Rogers scored 21 points, freshman standout Jazmine Davis added 17 of her 21 in the second half and Washington posted its 34th consecutive win over Washington State with a 60-56 victory Sunday. Washington continued a streak that began in 1996, when Daugherty was the Huskies’ coach. Unless the schools meet in the Pac-12 tournament, the streak will continue into the 2012-13 season. The Huskies (15-11, 7-9 Pac-

12) took control this time thanks to a big first half and then held off Washington State’s numerous second-half charges, which included the Cougars cutting a 10-point lead to four in the final minute. Washington also guaranteed itself a winning regular-season record in Kevin McGuff’s first year with the Huskies after coming over from Xavier. Washington was 11-17 a year ago. “It’s a reflection of our players,”

he said. “They’ve done everything I’ve asked them to do. “I’m happy for them that they experience a little bit of success, and hopefully we have more to come. “In general they’ve bought in from Day One what we were going to try and do, and as we get to the end, hopefully a positive record will be a reflection for them of their hard work and buy-in.” The Huskies led by nine at halftime, pushed the advantage to 14 early in the second half and

then answered every run the Cougars made. Washington State pulled within 51-45 with 5 minutes left, but Rogers hit a pair of free throws and Mollie Williams’ rebound putback gave the Huskies a 10-point lead with 3:15 left. Brandi Thomas led Washington State with 15 points, but the Cougars (10-18, 4-12) shot just 29 percent. Washington State leading scorer Jazmine Perkins missed all nine of her shots.

Mahan stops McIlroy in Match Play finals BY DOUG FERGUSON THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MARANA, Ariz. — Even as Hunter Mahan motored his way through the Match Play Championship by beating one tough opponent after another, he had reason to feel he was just along for the ride in the final match Sunday afternoon. All the chatter was about U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy and his march to No. 1 in the world. All the chants Mahan heard as he walked down the first two

holes at Dove Mountain were for McIlroy. With a little extra motivation he didn’t need, Mahan won three straight holes on the front nine to seize control and answered McIlroy’s charge with birdies of his own for a 2-and-1 victory. “Deep down, you wanted to postpone that crowning of the No. 1 player in the world for Rory,” Mahan said. “He’ll get there. I mean, he’s phenomenal. He’s really talented. He’ll be No. 1 eventually.

“But yeah, when you’re a player, and I listen to Johnny Miller and Nick Faldo and all those guys, they had him picked to win. And that’s what everybody was talking about. “There was absolute motivation in that.” It proved to be too long of a day for McIlroy, the 22-year-old from Northern Ireland, who put so much energy into a high-stakes semifinal match against Lee Westwood earlier Sunday. If either of them won the tour-

nament, they would go to No. 1 in the world. McIlroy, explosive as ever, ran off seven birdies in a 10-hole stretch to overcome an early deficit and beat Westwood. He looked flat in the championship match, made a series of mistakes to lose back-to-back holes, and fell too far behind to catch Mahan. “To me, it was like my final in a way,” McIlroy said of his win over Westwood.

“That was the one I wanted all week and I got. And that’s what I got myself up for. “Yeah, maybe mentally and emotionally it did take a little bit out of me. But it still doesn’t take away from the fact that Hunter played very, very solid golf.” “Even though I threw a few birdies and an eagle at him in the back nine, he still responded well and held on,” he said. “I think during the course of the week, he had played the best golf and deserved to win.”

day tournament at the Toyota Center in Kennewick. A jam-packed Pirate crowd showed its appreciation for head coach Alison Crumb, a Port Angeles native, for her team’s success this year, despite the tearful finish on “Sophomore Night.” The Pirates played their hearts out against Bellevue, building a 31-27 lead at halftime, but they struggled offensively in the second half, scoring only 17 points against a tenacious Bulldog defense. Taylor Larson led the Pirates with 16 points while Jasmine Yarde finished with eight points and a team-leading eight rebounds. Tia Mason finished with six points and three steals while Karli Brakes contributed four points, five assists and four steals. The Bellevue women did a nice job defending Jesse Ellis, holding the athletic guard to just three points. Ellis did, however, pull down seven rebounds and add five assists.
