PT Paper mill president resigns Exec credited with reviving company will move to East BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND â€” Roger Loney, who has served as the Port Townsend Paper Corp. president since 2011, announced his resignation Tuesday. Loney, who joined the company in June 2008 as general manager and vice president of operations at the Port Townsend mill, plans to stay on for a few months to assist
in the transition to new leadership at the mill, according to a statement issued by the company, Jefferson Countyâ€™s largest private employer, with about 300 workers. Loney, who arrived in Port Townsend with the intention of staying three to five years, will relocate to the East Coast, where most of his family lives, and plans to pursue other business interests, the statement said â€œOn behalf of the entire com-
pany, I would like to thank Roger for his commitment, leadership and efforts in moving the company meaningfully forward at a critical time in the companyâ€™s history,â€? said Port Townsend Holdings Co. Executive Chairman Dale Stahl in the statement. â€œWe wish him well in his future endeavors.â€? Company spokesman Kevin Scott said Loneyâ€™s plans already had been known within the company and that a search for a replacement has begun. He provided no other details. Loney was unavailable for comment Tuesday. The statement said Loney is â€œa
seasoned mill manager who has significant experience in turning around poor-performing assets.â€? The mill â€” which produces pulp for Asian markets and container board for cardboard boxes in North America â€” emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in August 2007, reorganizing under new management and structure. Stahl said Loney â€œhas worked diligently to develop a transforming strategic plan and to implement capital and process improvements to better position the company for success.â€?

Boat Haven building vanishing just hours after port paperwork
Gone in a flash BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND â€” Just 18 hours after port officials and a contractor signed a contract, demolition began on a decrepit wood-and-metal building that will be the home for a newly constructed Port of Port Townsend administrative office. On Tuesday morning, Mark Grant, owner of Grant Steel Buildings Systems of Port Townsend, was at the Boat Haven supervising the removal of the Marine Exchange building, which is being razed to make way for an $839,984, two-story 4,000-square-foot structure scheduled for move-in by Sept. 1. â€œWe expect that the building will be torn down today or tomorrow,â€? Grant said. â€œWe need to clear out the debris, get the utilities in and get the site pad ready.â€?

Prefabricated building to arrive The prefabricated building will arrive June 10 on five flatbed trucks. Grant and his crew will assemble all the parts. Grant said it will â€œabsolutelyâ€? be ready for occupancy Sept. 1, something that was in jeopardy after a rival bidder challenged the portâ€™s awarding of the contract to Grantâ€™s company March 15.

Singer Dionne Warwick files for Chapter 7 SINGER DIONNE WARWICK owes nearly $10 million in back taxes and has filed for bankruptcy. In a Chapter 7 petition filed this month in New Jersey, Warwick lists liabilities that include nearly $7 million owed to the Internal Revenue Service for the years 1991 to 1999 and more than $3 million in business taxes owed to the state of California. Warwick lists her current address in South Orange. The singer of classics such as “Walk On By,” “I Say a Little Prayer” and “Do You Know the Way to San Jose” also lists about $21,000 in monthly income and about the same amount in monthly expenses. Warwick’s publicist said the singer has paid back the actual amount of the taxes but that penalties and interest have accumulated over the years.

Briefly: World U.S., allies mull fighting piracy off west Africa WASHINGTON — The U.S. and some of its allies are considering plans to increase antipiracy operations along Africa’s west coast, spurred on by concerns that money from the attacks is funding a Nigerianbased insurgent group that is linked to one of al-Qaida’s most dangerous affiliates. Piracy in the Gulf of Guinea has escalated over the past year, and senior U.S. defense and counter-piracy officials say allied leaders are weighing whether beefed-up enforcement efforts that worked against pirates off the Somalia coast might also be needed in the waters off Nigeria. There has been growing coordination between Nigeria-based Boko Haram and al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb, or AQIM, which was linked to the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, last September that killed four Americans, including the ambassador. Military leaders have said AQIM has become the wealthiest al-Qaida offshoot and an increasing terrorist threat to the region.

High court may avoid ruling on gay marriage Justices hear arguments on California ban BY MARK SHERMAN THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court suggested Tuesday that it could find a way out of the case over California’s ban on same-sex marriage without issuing a major national ruling on whether gays have a right to marry — an issue one justice described as newer than cellphones and the Internet. Several justices, including some liberals who seemed open to gay marriage, raised doubts during a riveting 80-minute argument that the case was properly before them. And Justice Anthony Kennedy, the potentially decisive vote on a closely divided court, suggested that the court could dismiss the case with no ruling at all.
Such an outcome would almost certainly allow gay marriages to resume in California but would have no effect elsewhere. Kennedy said he feared the court would go into “uncharted waters” if it embraced arguments advanced by gay marriage supporters. But lawyer Theodore Olson, representing two same-sex couples, said the court similarly ventured into the unknown in 1967 when it struck down bans on interracial marriage in 16 states.
Interracial marriage Kennedy challenged the accuracy of that comment by noting that other countries had had interracial marriages for hundreds of years. There was no majority apparent for any particular outcome, and many doubts expressed about the arguments advanced by lawyers for the opponents of gay marriage in California, by the supporters and by the Obama administration, which is in favor of same-sex marriage rights.
A Supreme Court decision isn’t expected for months. In Tuesday’s arguments, Kennedy made clear he did not like the rationale of the federal appeals court that struck down Proposition 8, the California ban, even though it cited earlier opinions in favor of gay rights that Kennedy wrote. Several members of the court also were troubled by the Obama administration’s main point that when states offer same-sex couples all the rights of marriage, as California and eight other states do, they also must allow marriage. Justice Samuel Alito described gay marriage as newer than such rapidly changing technological advances as cellphones and the Internet, and appeared to advocate a more cautious approach to the issue. “You want us to assess the effect of same-sex marriage,” Alito said to Solicitor General Donald Verrilli. “It may turn out to be a good thing. It may turn out to be not a good thing.”
Italian court wants to retry Knox; she’s unlikely to return THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Amanda Knox left Seattle to study abroad in 2007, just another college student pursuing her interests in languages and literature. Four years later, after she was acquitted by an Italian court of killing her roommate, she returned a famous woman, greeted at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport by media from around the globe. Since then, the 25-year-old Knox has tried to return to the life she knew before the murder case. However, the attempt was upended Tuesday, when Italy’s highest criminal court ordered a
new trial for Knox and her former Italian boyfriend, overturning their acquittals in the gruesome slaying of her British roomKnox mate. The move raised a host of questions about how the next phase of Italian justice would play out. Italian law cannot compel Knox to return for the new trial, and one of her lawyers, Carlo Dalla Vedova, said in Rome that
she had no plans to do so. Knox in Seattle issued a statement Tuesday, saying: “No matter what happens, my family and I will face this continuing legal battle as we always have, confident in the truth and with our heads held high in the face of wrongful accusations and unreasonable adversity.” Family spokesman David Marriott ageed that it’s “very doubtful” that Knox will travel to Italy for the new trial and instead will continue to attend the University of Washington, where she is a junior. No public appearances were immediately planned, he said.

Council hears from public at town hall BY JOE SMILLIE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
SEQUIM –– Youth lacrosse, the city’s centennial and regional economic development were brought up to the City Council when some 30 people attended a special town hall-style session this week. With a light agenda, the council opened up the floor Monday night for anyone who wanted to discuss city issues. Danielle Patterson, coach of the North Olympic Peninsula Mountaineers girls lacrosse team, said her team had to make an impromptu move to play a game at Stevens Middle School in Port Angeles after her club was exiled from the Albert Haller Playfields at Carrie Blake Park. “It’s the best field on the Olympic Peninsula,” Patterson said of the Carrie Blake facilities with a cadre of young lacrosse team mem-
bers at her back. Craig Stevenson, president of Sequim Family Advocates, the group formed to help establish the fields, said the Mountaineers approached him earlier this month looking for a place to play. With soccer on the Haller fields most Saturdays, and its proximity to the Olympic Discovery Trail, Stevenson said they felt it would be best to hold lacrosse matches on their own fields. “Haller’s a very busy place on Saturdays,” Stevenson said. Patterson said the lacrosse teams are risking injuries by playing on other area fields that have rough surfaces. “For games, we need a safe place and a show place,” Patterson said. Stevenson said they thought they had helped find the lacrosse crew a home on the Greywolf field.
“I genuinely look forward to lacrosse growing here,” he said. “It’s a great game. I thought we had helped out.”
PA mayor Also Monday, Port Angeles Mayor Cherie Kidd greeted the council to cheer on the city’s centennial celebration. “Go get ’em, Sequim,” she said. Mayor Kidd remembered visiting her grandparents’ farm on Sequim’s west side as a child; her grandfather giving her the occasional playful squirt in the face with milk from a cow’s udder. She swapped pins from last year’s Port Angeles sesquicentennial for a Sequim centennial pin before pledging an appearance at the July 5 “Street Dance of the Century” that will be held downtown.

2012 agreement In 2012, the city brokered a deal to use proceeds from its lodging tax revenue to pay $3,250 for shuttles around festival and $2,000 for maps and banners. Another $6,400 from the lodging tax fund paid for additional requirements of city services like police and road crews, according to Elray Konkel, the city’s administrative services director. In return, said City Attorney Craig Ritchie, the two groups agreed to include each other in promotional materials and information booths, as well as folding their separate festivals into the “Sequim Lavender Weekend” brand. “The city wanted to promote the lavender weekend so everything was under one umbrella,” Ritchie said. “We’re trying to get so this is one big happy event, even though they’re two separate groups.” City officials said that the growers’ group failed to use the Sequim Lavender Weekend brand in all advertising. In the settlement approved Monday, the city dropped its option to pursue what Ritchie called its “full liquidated damages,” which he said could have been as
high as $12,000. Jendrucko said the $12,000 was a figure outlined if one of the groups had violated all of the terms of the contract, not for a few. “He’s obviously not interpreting the same document we signed,” Jendrucko said. Miller said the council voted in favor of the settlement out of fairness. “The Farmers Association scrupulously adhered to their agreement,” Miller said. “To let it go would not have been fair to the farmers.”
The split vote Erichsen said after the vote that he voted against the settlement “because I disagreed with it,” but would not explain his reasoning. Miller said he abstained because he wanted more time to consider the deal, which was presented to the council in executive session for the first time after Monday’s regular council meeting, before casting a voting in one session. “I didn’t think I had enough time to ensure we had come up with a reasoned solution,” Miller said. City officials said they hoped the settlement would make for a smoother festival this summer. Ritchie said the groups and the city are currently negotiating revisions to the contract for the 2013 edition. “It’s a work in progress,” Ritchie said. “We’re on track to get a good contract for the next go-around,” Jendrucko said.

SEQUIM –– The Sequim Lavender Growers Association will pay $1,000 to have the city drop its potential claims for up to $12,000 for not conforming with a citybrokered agreement to have all advertising branded with the words Sequim Lavender Weekend. The requirement was part of a pact created by the city after the Sequim Lavender Farmers Association broke off from the Sequim Lavender Growers Association. The Sequim City Council on Monday night approved a settlement agreement with the growers association on a 5-1 vote, with Councilman Erik Erichsen voting against it and Councilman Ted Miller abstaining. “We’re just looking forward to our free lavender festival this summer,” Paul Jendrucko, spokesman for the Sequim Lavender Growers Association. The farmers’ group split off from the growers’ group before the 2011 Lavender Festival, with the growers association holding the Sequim Lavender Festival — which offers free tours of farms and a street fair in downtown Sequim — and the farmers association hosting the Sequim Lavender Farm Faire — which offers paid “heritage farm” tours and a free fair in Carrie Blake Park. The city of Sequim uses the term, “Sequim Lavender Weekend” for all of the events, which will be July 19-21 this year, and contracted with both groups to combine advertising efforts. “The real goal there was to move forward with a unified effort,” said Barb
“We’re trying to get so this is one big happy event, even though they’re two separate groups.”

Sequim man pleads not guilty to thefts BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” A Sequim man captured last week after a nearly weeklong law enforcement search pleaded not guilty Monday to eight charges. Jay J. Dodaro, 33, entered a not-guilty plea in Clallam County Superior Court after being charged with three counts of residential burglary â€” one with aggravated circumstances because the homeowner was present in the house at the time, though they didnâ€™t interact â€” three counts of second-degree taking a motor vehicle without permission, one count of possession of a stolen vehicle
and one count of second-degree burglary. A jury trial for Dodaro, who remained Tuesday in Dodaro the Clallam County jail on $50,000 bail, was set for May 20. Dodaro will next appear in court April 12 for a status hearing. Dodaro faces fines ranging from $10,000 and $20,000, and between five to 10 years in prison for each charge, according to court documents. Clallam County sheriffâ€™s
deputies arrested Dodaro on March 19 in the Carlsborg area after receiving a tip from an area resident. Authorities had been looking for Dodaro since March 15 on multiple arrest warrants, including warrants from Clallam, Jefferson and Thurston counties. The charges brought against Dodaro stem from five separate Clallam County Sheriffâ€™s Office investigations spanning four months, from Dec. 25 last year to March 16. Dodaro allegedly burglarized multiple houses and had taken two pickup trucks, one sedan and one motor home, all from different owners.
Mental health site OKâ€™d BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” Clallam County has approved a contract with Peninsula Behavioral Health to establish a mental health crisis respite center in Port Angeles. The three commissioners voted unanimously Tuesday to approve the $238,260 contract with the mental health provider to renovate a portion of an Eighth Street building and to operate the space as a three-bed respite center for adults in need of psychiatric hospitalization. The crisis center will open in the southwest corner of the St. Vincent De Paul building at 112 E. Eighth St. in September. The contract with the county runs through September 2014. â€œIn a way, the county is providing the start-up funds,â€? said Jude Anderson, Clallam County treatment coordinator and contracts administrator. â€œPeninsula Behavioral Health is expected to get other partners on the continuing operation of the center. . . . The idea is there will be multiple community partners.â€? The respite center will become the only psychiatric center on the North Olympic Peninsula. â€œWe really havenâ€™t had sort of that safety option for those folks in the mental health community in the past,â€? Anderson said. The nearest psychiatric
ward is the Kitsap Adult Inpatient Unit in Bremerton. The respite center will not be a detox facility. It will be a mental health crisis center that will alleviate pressure on Olympic Medical Center, which treats psychiatric patients in its intensive care unit. â€œTwo years ago, we boarded six people at OMC,â€? said Peter Casey, Peninsula Behavioral Health executive director, in the commissionersâ€™ work session Tuesday. â€œLast year, we boarded 34 people at OMC.â€? Psychiatric wards are being reduced around the state at a time that boardings are on the rise. Pending state legislation would expand the Involuntary Treatment Act to cover those in â€œimminent danger to self or othersâ€? to those who are â€œlikely in danger to self or others.â€? â€œWhat thatâ€™s going to do is increase the number of hospitalizations,â€? Casey said.
Future support Casey said he has verbal commitments from OMC, the city and the Lower Elwha Klallam tribe to help support the center in the future. â€œWe anticipate speaking with Jamestown [Sâ€™Klallam tribe] and also the city of Sequim,â€? he added. The respite center will qualify Peninsula Behavioral Health patients for Medicaid assistance. Payments would be shared by
stakeholders based on the percentage of their contribution. â€œThis is happening, really, at a pretty good time,â€? Casey said. Peninsula Behavioral Health will hire four fulltime and two half-time residential aides to staff the center. An advanced registered nurse practitioner, registered nurse and two aides will be on call, according to the contract. Commissioner Mike Doherty asked Casey to involve state Rep. Steve Tharinger, a former Clallam County commissioner from Sequim, in the project. â€œHe really knows the issue,â€? Doherty said. Anderson said in a telephone interview that there are several advantages to having a crisis center in Port Angeles, including patient proximity to loved ones and the availability of local resources. Mental health patients often struggle with co-occurring chemical dependency, she added. Casey said Peninsula Behavioral Health already has received bids for the renovation of the building. A separate section of the building will be used to house Volunteers in Medicine of the Olympics. â€œMy idea in getting this started was to increase visibility and credibility,â€? Casey said of the respite center. â€œWeâ€™ve been talking about this issue in this community for a long time.â€?
Gary Colley was honored at a North Olympic Land Trust breakfast Friday.
Land trust honors retiree for service Ex-lawyer helped draft papers to form nonprofit BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” The North Olympic Land Trust honored retired Port Angeles attorney Gary Colley for his services at the fourth annual conservation breakfast last week. In 1990, Colley drafted the necessary papers to form the nonprofit land trust based in Port Angeles and convened its initial board of directors, said Tom Sanford, the land trustâ€™s executive director. Colley has donated more than $1 million in legal services to the land trust, according to Orville Campbell, land trust co-founder, former Port Angeles deputy mayor and retired mill manager. Colley has contributed to the preservation of 78 North Olympic Land Trust projects totaling more than
2,700 acres, Sanford said. Colley, senior partner in the Platt Irwin Law Firm of Port Angeles, retired at the end of December from there as well as from the land trust. He was honored at the breakfast Friday. â€œI really appreciate the honor and feel really good about the future of the organization,â€? Colley said Tuesday.
Decades of work
helped by Colley wrote thank-you notes in a guestbook. Josey Paul, a property owner at East Twin River, between Clallam Bay and Crescent Bay near state Highway 112, worked with Colley to get a conservation easement on his property in the 1990s. â€œI first met Gary in â€™93 or â€™94, when he came bouncing down the pot-holed mud road to my homestead with a van full of pale-faced NOLT board members. Back then, a few of the potholes were deep enough to make a cat swim,â€? Paul wrote. Paul said he expressed concern for the van, but Colley pointedly wiped the dirt off the four-wheel-drive logo. â€œHe said he went looking for challenges. He then proceeded, with uncommon kindness, to advise me on my easement,â€? he wrote.
â€œGary is renowned for his passion and decades of work to conserve the lands of the North Olympic Peninsula that make this such a wonderful place to live,â€? Sanford said.

Capt. Crystal Stout and crew will sail her hot air balloon at this Septemberâ€™s Olympic Peninsula Air Affaire at the Sequim Valley Airport.
Sequim airport to host Air Affaire on Labor Day BY JOE SMILLIE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
SEQUIM â€“â€“ The renowned skies above Sequim â€” the â€œblue hole,â€? as pilots call it â€” will be filled with aeronauts this Labor Day as Sequim Valley Airport hosts the firstever Olympic Peninsula Air Affaire. A trio of aviation enthusiasts from the Sequim area is finalizing plans for the two-day â€œair-stravaganza,â€? which will mark the 30th anniversary of Sequim Valley Airport, 468 Dorothy Hunt Lane, and Sequimâ€™s 100th anniversary Aug. 31 and Sept. 1. On tap for the atmospheric bash are antique airplanes, hot air balloons, remote-control aircraft â€“â€“ even kites, wind socks and pinwheels. â€œIf it uses air, itâ€™s going to be there,â€? said Capt. Crystal Stout, Sequimâ€™s premier hot air balloonist. â€œItâ€™s just going to be a love-fest for everything
that flies.â€? Stout added that the group is working on bringing in wing-walkers, skydivers and military aircraft. â€œThe goal is to set up something that feels just like the Roaring â€™20s,â€? she said.
A brand-new bag Stout is the spokeswoman for a trio of local aviation enthusiasts who are planning the Air Affaire: herself, airport President Andy Sallee and Emily Westcott, a longtime area pilot. The trio has been working on organizing the Air Affaire for several years in preparation for the cityâ€™s centennial and the airportâ€™s anniversary, Sallee said. â€œItâ€™s a special thing,â€? Westcott said. â€œItâ€™s really going to be just so much fun.â€? Randall Tomaras, organizer of last yearâ€™s Sequim Hot Air Balloon Festival, cited the Air Affaire when

he decided last month to cancel the 2013 balloon festival he was planning for the same weekend. Dozens of balloons were stationed at the airport during last yearâ€™s balloon festival, while other vendors and events were staged in a field in east Sequim. â€œWe had so much fun at the balloon festival last year,â€?

charity she is forming to help give the disabled a chance to ride in special hot air balloons. â€œItâ€™s something to lift their spirits,â€? she said. Capt. Crystal will marry Oregon couple Misty Collard and Cory Adcox as her hot air balloon lifts into the sky Sunday afternoon. The pair has been dating for four years. Collard said they met in Las Vegas and then parted ways before later bumping into each other in a Portland, Ore., elevator. â€œAnd the rest is history,â€? she said. They chose Stoutâ€™s balloon, Collard said, because of their longtime affinity for the North Olympic Peninsula. â€œItâ€™s going to be a beautiful backdrop,â€? Collard said. â€œWe love the Peninsula and thought it would be awesome to get married up there.â€? For more information, visit the Olympic Peninsula Air Affaire Facebook page or www.sequimvalley airport.com.
Stout said the group wants the event to have a strong connection to the Sequim community. â€œThis town loves to fly,â€? she said. â€œIâ€™ve met so many people who love planes or fly in planes or draw or photograph planes. Thereâ€™s a definite love for it here.â€? The trio is urging local artists to sign up to feature their flight-themed works. Stout said organizers also want local cooks to provide food service, local bands to play the music, â€œand weâ€™re definitely going ________ to need the help of a lot of local volunteers.â€?

Jefferson County added 50 service jobs but shed 40 in goods-producing in February for a net gain of 10 jobs. There were 10,430 Jefferson County residents employed and 1,310 active job-seekers.

SEATTLE â€” The Duwamish tribe of Seattle has another shot at gaining federal recognition after a federal judge ruled in the tribeâ€™s favor. U.S. District Court Judge John Coughenour ruled last Friday that the Department of Interior wrongly denied the tribeâ€™s petition for federal recognition in 2001. He ordered the agency to consider the tribeâ€™s petition using 1994 guidelines or explain why it declines to do so. The Duwamish have been seeking federal recognition for more than three decades. The tribe initially petitioned for recognition in 1977. Federally recognized tribes enjoy privileges and rights, including powers of self-government and federal services.
