Worden uncertainty cloaks new leader Could be out of job if PDA assumes park BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS


Allison Alderman pauses on the Fort Worden State Park grounds Wednesday, when she met with staff.

PORT TOWNSEND — Allison Alderman sits down in her office as manager of Fort Worden State Park today with a degree of uncertainty. Discussions about possibly transferring management of the park to the Lifelong Learning Center Public Development Authority could end in the elimination of her position.

“There is instability here,” said Alderman, 46. “If it turns out that the PDA takes over the park and turns it into a lifelong learning center and does not hire me as its director, I could be in the same boat I was before.” She also understands that a lot of people who were loyal to the former manager, Kate Burke, might not welcome her with open arms. “When I got off of the ferry today, there wasn’t a mob waiting there with a noose, so that was a good thing,” she said Wednesday, when she arrived in Port Townsend to meet with park staff. “There are a lot of people who aren’t happy that I’m here, but I can only be myself and do the

best job I can.” When Alderman’s job as region operations manager in the State Parks Northwest Region Office was eliminated in December, the 21-year State Parks employee displaced the less-senior Burke from the manager’s position, in keeping with parks personnel regulations. This occurred during an effort by a public development authority created by the city of Port Townsend to turn Fort Worden into a lifelong learning center, a process of which Burke — who was manager of Fort Worden since 2002 — was a key part, so the PDA has proposed taking over some or all of the park for this purpose.

House Republican Leader Richard Debolt said for the first time Wednesday that they are willing to support a repeal of a tax break for banks, something GOP lawmakers opposed just last year. Debolt said they examined the role the exemptions play in the state and found “it is not in the best interest of the state of Washington to pursue this anymore.” TO

Secada joins awareness campaign THREE-TIME GRAMMY WINNER Jon Secada wishes his father hadn’t kept his chronic hepatitis C diagnosis a secret. The CubanAmerican singer-songwriter’s father, Jose, didn’t tell anyone about his diagnosis for Secada a decade, failing to get the help he needed. He died last year from complications related to the virus. Now, his son wants to make sure others get diagnosed and share information with their families. Secada, whose hits include “Just Another Day,” lent his voice Thursday to a campaign to raise awareness among Hispanics about the disease. Hispanics make up an estimated one-third of the

3.2 million Americans who have chronic hepatitis C, which can remain in the body for years and severely damage the liver. But it is often not talked about, in part because individuals can go symptomless for years. Also, there has long been a stigma around the illness because it is a blood-borne disease that can be contracted through needle exchange and sex. “You can’t be silent with a silent disease that has consequences like chronic hepatitis C — you need to talk to your doctor and talk to your family,” Secada said in a statement. The American Liver Foundation and the New Jersey-based pharmaceutical company Merck — known as MSD in Latin America — are sponsoring the campaign.

Mum on mystery Andrew Lincoln, who stars as Sheriff Rick Grimes in “The Walking Dead,” said he loves a secret. That’s partly why Lincoln has told no one the answer to what’s become

the biggest mystery of the AMC zombie drama: What scientist Dr. Jenner whispered to Lincoln Rick in the season one finale. “Not even my wife knows what he whispered to me,” Lincoln said in an interview Wednesday. Lincoln said that in keeping the secret, he feels he is being true to his character in the show. “He chooses not to tell people, so why would I tell?” Lincoln said of the sheriff. What was said has only been heard by a handful of people, and the mystery has become the object of intense scrutiny by fans. Lincoln said he realized just how curious people were when a show editor revealed he had scrolled through hours of show footage and listened in on radio traffic to find the only two takes where the brief remarks were audible. The cast said the contents of the conversation will be revealed this season.

CHARLES ANTHONY, 82, a character singer who set the record for most appearances at the Metropolitan Opera — 2,928 — during a career that spanned from 1954 to 2010, died Wednesday. Mr. Anthony, a tenor, died at his home in Tampa, Fla., from kidney failure following a long illness, Met Mr. Anthony spokesman in 1957 Peter Clark said. Beginning his career at the old Met on Broadway and moving uptown with the company to its new home at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in 1966, Mr. Anthony was a “comprimario,” or supporting singer. He shared the stage with the greatest classical artists of several eras, performing in the Met debuts of Marian Anderson, Birgit Nilsson, Jon Vickers, Leontyne Price, Franco Corelli, Joan Sutherland, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf and Jose Carreras. “It’s no exaggeration to say that Charlie Anthony is the soul of the Metropolitan Opera,” Joseph Volpe, then the Met’s general manager, said when Mr. Anthony was honored during an intermission in Puccini’s “Tosca” in 2004. Born Calogero Antonio Caruso in New Orleans in 1929, Mr. Anthony entered the Met’s Auditions of the Air competition in 1952.


Met general manager Rudolf Bing feared that the public would think he was related to the great tenor Enrico Caruso and that the young singer would be burdened with expectations — so Bing persuaded him to change his name a halfhour before air time. Milton Cross, the Met’s broadcast host, apparently played a role in the decision on what name to take. “I couldn’t think of anything, so we just dropped Caruso, which made grandfather furious,” Mr. Anthony told The New York Times in 1992. Mr. Anthony made his Met debut as the Simpleton in Mussorsky’s “Boris Godunov” on March 6, 1954, with George London in the title role. “Probably few who saw the performance will forget him,” the Times wrote two days later. “Anthony had better be careful. If he does other bit parts so vividly, he’ll be stamped as a character singer for life.” Which is exactly what happened.

A3 Briefly: Nation Aretha to sing at Houston’s N.J. funeral NEWARK, N.J. — Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder will sing at the private funeral of Whitney Houston on Saturday in what promises to be a very musical service. Publicist Kristen Foster also confirmed that invitations went out to Houston’s ex-husband, Bobby Brown; her co-star in “The Bodyguard,” Kevin Costner; and Oprah Winfrey. Houston’s longtime mentor, Clive Davis, will speak at the funeral. The eulogy will be given by gospel singer and longtime family friend Marvin Winans. Organizers were getting New Hope Baptist Church in Newark ready Thursday for the funeral. Drums and speakers, which were to be part of the musical service, were in the aisles. Newark police said streets will be shut down for six square blocks around the church.

Payroll tax cut vote WASHINGTON — A compromise bill extending a payroll tax cut and jobless benefits for the long-term unemployed should be enacted, but it’s not going to help the economy very much, House Speaker John Boehner said Thursday. Boehner, R-Ohio, made the remarks hours after bipartisan congressional bargainers announced agreement on legislation extending those provi-

sions through 2012 and heading off a steep cut in reimbursements for physicians who treat Medicare patients. The bill would assure a tax cut for 160 million workers and jobless benefits for several million others. Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., said leaders were anticipating pushing the legislation through Congress today.

Romney struggling


WASHINGTON — Republican Mitt Romney is faltering with white working-class voters crucial to his party’s drive to capture the White House, even as he tries to fend off a rising GOP challenger, Rick Santorum, who wields strong blue-collar appeal. The wealthy former Bain Capital chief has led his rivals among white college graduates, according to combined polls of voters Romney in the first five states that held presidential nominating contests. But the exit and entry surveys showed only a modest Romney advantage among whites who lack college degrees, the yardstick analysts typically use to define the working class. The imbalance was most pronounced among less-educated white men, with whom his lead disappeared. The Associated Press


The New Jersey Assembly on Thursday voted 42 to 33 in favor of legislation to legalize same-sex marriage in New Jersey. Democrats sponsored and voted in favor of the proposal while Republicans voted against it. The bill, the Marriage Equality and Religious Exemption Act, was approved 24 to 16 by the Senate on Monday. The measure now moves to Gov. Chris Christie, who is prepared to veto it. The legislation would eliminate state civil unions law that has been in place since 2007. Legislative Democrats argue the law has failed to provide equal treatment to New Jersey’s same-sex couples. It defines marriage as the legally recognized union of two consenting people in a committed relationship. Christie wants the issue decide by voters through a referendum on the November ballot. The Democrats who control the Legislature maintain a civil rights issue should not be decide by popular vote and have declared they will not send the governor referendum legislation.

Briefly: World Fire incinerated those who were never charged TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras — The prisoners whose scorched bodies were carried out piece by piece Thursday from a charred Honduran prison had been locked in a crowded penitentiary where most inmates had never been charged, let alone convicted, according to an internal Honduran government report. The Honduran government report, which was sent to the United Nations this month, said 57 percent of some 800 inmates of the Comayagua farm prison north of the Central American country’s capital were either awaiting trial or being held as suspected gang members. A fire that witnesses said was started by an inmate tore through the prison Tuesday night, burning and suffocating screaming men in their locked cells as rescuers desperately searched for keys. The death toll was at 355 Thursday afternoon.

Afghan, Pakistan talks ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — On a day when U.S. drone-fired missiles struck twice in the militant havens of Pakistan’s tribal region, reportedly killing 14, the talk in Islamabad was all about how to broker peace. Afghan President Hamid Karzai and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad arrived Thursday for a two-day summit that has raised hopes, however

slim, of reviving nascent reconciliation. Karzai — who was not part of the initial U.S.-Taliban talks, although Obama Karzai administration officials said he was briefed on them regularly — arrived in Pakistan after telling The Wall Street Journal that the Taliban was “definitely” supportive of negotiating a settlement with his government and its primary backer, the United States. “People in Afghanistan want peace, including the Taliban,” Karzai told the Journal.

constitution to deny rights to one group because of another group’s religious beliefs.” Assembly Speaker Sheila Y. Oliver (D-Essex) said, “This legislation would provide everyone in this state — everyone — with the same respect and protections under the law. It eliminates the second-class citizenship status that same-sex couples presently face.” Washington enacted a marriage equality bill Monday.

1 in 12 marriages are now interracial THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Interracial marriages in the U.S. have climbed to 4.8 million — a record 1 in 12 — as a steady flow of Asian and Hispanic immigrants expands the pool of prospective spouses. A Pew Research Center study released Thursday details a diversifying America where interracial unions and the mixed-race children they produce challenge typical notions of race. “The rise in interracial marriage indicates that race relations have improved over the past quarter-century,” said Daniel Lichter, a sociology professor at Cornell University. “Mixed-race children have blurred America’s color line. They often interact with others on either side of the racial divide and frequently serve as brokers between friends and family

members of different racial backgrounds,” he said. “But America still has a long way to go.” The study finds that 8.4 percent of all current U.S. marriages are interracial, up from 3.2 percent in 1980. While Hispanics and Asians remained the most likely, as in previous decades, to marry someone of a different race, the biggest jump in share since 2008 occurred among blacks, who historically have been the most segregated. States in the West where Asian and Hispanic immigrants are more numerous, including Hawaii, Nevada, New Mexico and California, were among the most likely to have couples who “marry out” — more than 1 in 5. The West was followed by the South, Northeast and Midwest. By state, mostly white Vermont had the lowest rate of intermarriage, at 4 percent.

‘Underwear’ bomber gets life BY ED WHITE THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DETROIT — A federal judge ordered life in prison Thursday for a young Nigerian man who turned away from a privileged life and tried to blow up a packed international flight with a bomb concealed in his underwear. Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who has said he was on a suicide mission for al-Qaida, was the same defiant man who four months ago pleaded guilty to all charges related to Northwest Airlines Flight 253. He seemed to relish his mandatory sentence and defended his actions as rooted in the Quran. “Mujahideen are proud to kill in the name of God. And that is exactly what God told us to do in

the Quran,” he said. “Today is a day of victory.” Four passengers and a crew member who were aboard the plane earlier told U.S. Dis- Abdulmutallab trict Judge Nancy Edmunds that the event forever changed their lives. Abdulmutallab “has never expressed doubt or regret or remorse about his mission,” Edmunds said. “In contrast, he sees that mission as divinely inspired.” Life in prison is a “just punishment for what he has done,” the judge said. “The defendant poses

a significant ongoing threat to the safety of American citizens everywhere.” Abdulmutallab, the 25-yearold, European-educated son of a banker, told the government that he trained in Yemen under the eye of Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical American-born cleric and one of the best-known al-Qaida figures. He chose to detonate a bomb on the Amsterdam-to-Detroit flight, but it failed and badly burned him. He quickly confessed after he was hauled off the plane. The judge allowed prosecutors to show a video of the FBI demonstrating the power of the explosive material found in his underwear. As the video played, Abdulmutallab twice said loudly, “Allahu akbar,” meaning God is great.

Park: Director plans to meet staff individually CONTINUED FROM A1 The State Parks Commission tabled a decision on the proposal earlier this month. It will consider it at its next meeting, which will be at Fort Worden State Park Commons beginning at 9 a.m. March 28. The PDA has indicated its intention to hire Burke as its director should it take over any portion of the park and is currently working on a contract with her to develop a business plan for the park.

Met with staff After getting acquainted with some of the 32 park staff members Wednesday, Alderman spent Thursday in Olympia meeting with State Parks management. She plans to meet with each staff member individually “because some people aren’t comfortable speaking in a group, and I want to talk to everyone about how they can do their jobs more effectively.� She also expects to meet with user groups connected to the park as well as the

She is enthusiastic about the effort to turn the park into a self-sustaining lifelong learning center with diverse educational programs, and expects to participate in the planning and

execution of the lifelong learning Center. Alderman said she didn’t want to “bump� Burke, whom she knows and likes, from the Fort Worden position but essentially had no choice. “This is not now a nor-

mal situation, and it is not how I have ever gotten a job,� she said. “I have never been RIFed,� being dismissed because of a reduction in force, “or had to bump someone else out of their job,�

Alderman added. Other possibilities represented a significant pay decrease. She called her new position “a lateral move� with regard to responsibility and salary. She is earning $78,500 annual, the same salary Burke earned. The Fort Worden job was presented to her as her “formal option,� she said. Alderman expects that as more state cuts will increase the financial squeeze on the parks system, her financial experience allow her to find areas where money can be saved and efficiency increased. Alderman, a Northwest native, is a graduate of the State Parks law enforcement academy and has spent her parks career in management positions. During her two decades in the parks service, Alderman has supervised several park managers at several parks, including Deception Pass, Fort Flagler, Fort Casey, the Green River Gorge Area, Moran and Cama Beach. She also plans to

rely on volunteers. “We don’t have enough money, so we need to look at creative ways to get things done,� she said. “The great thing about Port Townsend is there is a tremendous amount of community involvement, and I expect to tap into that.� Alderman, who is single and has no children, will live at Fort Flagler for three months while she looks for a home in Port Townsend and decides what to do with her 13.5-acre spread in Alger, which is north of Burlington. She expects that many of the questions asked of her will be about Burke, either directly or obliquely. “Kate didn’t do anything wrong that caused her to lose her job,� Alderman said. “She was here a long time, and the loyalty to her is understandable. “All I can do is the best I can do and put my entire self into this job. People will like me or they won’t.�

They also believed they could get a slight benefit in a new revenue forecast Thursday because the economy has shown signs of stability. The Legislature would

still need to cut several hundred million dollars this session to balance the budget. Even though they’ve made progress, both parties expect it could take a while to come to consensus on a final budget plan. Senate Democrats met Wednesday morning to discuss specific proposals on where to cut, with Brown saying some were opposed to further reductions in

education while others wanted to protect the social safety net. House Republicans are proposing their own budget today, while their Democratic counterparts are preparing a rollout next week.

Obama: White House doesn’t have land bill yet CONTINUED FROM A1 According to the Library of Congress, the bill, HR 1162, had not been sent to the White House for Obama’s signature as of mid-day Thursday. The White House Press Office would not speak on the record about when Obama might sign the legislation. The bill was approved 381-7 by the House on Feb. 6 and by unanimous consent Tuesday by the U.S. Senate.

The legislation gives the tribe, whose reservation is just south of the Quillayute River, a tsunami inundation zone in 785 acres of Olympic National Park, including 275 acres where the tribal headquarters, school, day care center and elder center can move. In return, the tribe guarantees public access through tribal lands to Rialto, Second and other popular coastal beaches. Dicks, a Belfair Democrat whose 6th Congressional District includes Clallam

and Jefferson counties, sponsored the legislation in the House, while a Senate version was co-sponsored by Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Mountlake Terrace, and Sen. Patty Murray, D-Bothell.

Senate version The Senate version, which also included the designation of 4,100 acres around Lake Crescent as wilderness, was discarded in favor of the House bill, which did not include the provision.

The Quileute Tribal Council is expected to meet today to discuss which tribal facilities will be moved first, Tribal Chairman Tony Foster has said. The tribe has about 700 members, hundreds of whom live and work in a “lower village� area flooded annually by the Quillayute River and threatened regularly by tsunamis that ride the Pacific Ocean, Foster said.

OMC to put spending on hold in 2012 Expansion of PA emergency room delayed for one year BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

“Depending on what Washington, D.C., and Olympia do to us, I think it’s very likely that we’ll have to do additional expenditure cuts.� In addition to delaying the ER expansion, which was previously scheduled for 2013, OMC will defer $1 million in other capital spending until next year or beyond. Hospital officials have said an ER expansion is overdue. Overcrowding has been a concern for patients in the nine-bed unit, which will eventually be expanded to 21 beds to the tune of $8.3 million.

PORT ANGELES — Olympic Medical Center has put the brakes on spending this year. As the public hospital district faces massive cuts in state and federal reimbursement, the six-member board voted unanimously Wednesday night to approve a financial stability plan for 2012 that reduces capital spending by $5.5 million. A significant piece of the plan is a one-year delay in the expansion of the emergency room at the Port Angeles hospital, a move that will save $4.5 million. “I think it’s the bare Urgent care in Sequim minimum,� Chief Executive Officer Eric Lewis said of In a related matter, the seven-point financial OMC will consider opening strategy. an urgent-care clinic in

Sequim later this year. “Should the board approve that, we’ll be looking for physicians and advanced clinical practitioners to staff kind of a walkin clinic to increase access for people that need acute care immediately that don’t have access,� Lewis said. “I will say the economics of the urgent-care or walkin clinic are really tough. A lot of hospitals have lost a lot of money with these,� he added. “I think when we put this together, we’re going to try to get a break-even, but there is a chance of losing money as you set up a walkin clinic due to payor mix and costs.� Dr. John Miles, board chairman, said a walk-in clinic in Sequim would ease overcrowding at the Port Angeles emergency room. “That’s certainly a positive reason to do it,� Lewis said. The third point in the

2012 financial stability plan is legislative advocacy for health care reimbursement to hospitals. Deep cuts from Medicare and Medicaid are on the table, but the direct hit to OMC remains unclear.

Gregoire proposal Gov. Chris Gregoire has proposed that the state Legislature eliminate Basic Health and Disability Lifeline, which paid OMC a combined $3 million in 2011. “At the very least, they’re going to get drastically cut back,� Lewis said of the state programs. Exactly three-fourths of OMC’s business in 2011 came from the government: 55 percent from Medicare, 12 percent from Medicaid and 8 percent from other programs. Medicaid pays OMC 53 percent of what it costs to treat its patients.

OMC had $9.5 million in uncompensated care last year. “Advocacy has to be a major goal,� Lewis said. The fourth goal in the financial stability plan is to generate $1 million in new revenue by expanding local health care services. “We know that tens of millions of dollars and many patients leave the community to go to Silverdale or Seattle for services that we could provide locally, particularly if we could recruit neurologists, expand cardiology, sleep medicine, orthopedics, cancer care, primary care and other services,� Lewis said. Overall, patient volumes at OMC were up 1 percent in 2011 over 2010. The driving force was radiation oncology, which saw a 25 percent spike in volume since the cancer center launched a high-tech linear accelerator in April. “That has been very pos-

itive because patients can get their care locally in a very high-quality, safe way,� Lewis said. The remaining points in the financial plan are as follows: ■Cut expenses by at least $1.5 million from budgeted amounts by reducing new hires and overtime and limiting pay raises. ■ Expand the new affiliation with Swedish Medical Center with a focus on a buying group, electronic medical records and clinical services. ■ Adjust hospital employee benefits to market. When introducing the financial stability plan Feb. 1, Lewis emphasized that OMC has no plans to cut patient services, outsource or lay off employees.

been observing.� The letter advised the dozens of trustees from seven states to suspend all McKenna questionable foreclosures and warned that they could be investigated. Trustees act as a neutral third party, working with both the lender and borrower during foreclosure proceedings. Stephen Routh, a founding partner of the law firm, and his wife, JoAnn, each donated $3,200 to McKenna’s campaign; attorney Lance Olsen donated $1,000; and attorney David Fennell, an executive with Northwest Trustee, and his wife, Catherine, each donated $3,200. “I respect the right of Attorney General McKenna to make whatever decision he feels is best for his campaign,� said Olsen, who said his law firm and his client, Northwest Trustees, “does everything it can to act in strict compliance with the spirit and the letter of the law.� “We do the best we can to do business in the right way,� he said. “I would hope that nobody would draw a conclusion that isn’t supported by the facts.� Routh and Fennell did not respond to emails seeking comment. Janelle Guthrie, a spokeswoman for the Attorney General’s Office, said the office does not confirm or deny existing investigations unless a civil action is filed by the attorney general. No actions have been filed against Northwest Trustee Services as a result of the 2010 letter, Guthrie said. Still, McKenna felt the

Forks seeks drag racing application

OLYMPIA — Republican gubernatorial candidate and state Attorney General Rob McKenna has returned nearly $14,000 in donations from people tied to a firm that helps mediate foreclosures. McKenna’s office had put the company, Northwest Trustee Services Inc., on notice in 2010 that it could face investigation, but his campaign accepted donations from the donors Sept. 30. He has since returned the money, according to an amended financial disclosure form that was submitted Feb. 9, the same day McKenna announced Washington state’s share of a $25 billion settlement with the nation’s biggest mortgage lenders over foreclosure abuses.

demonstrate that it had “reached out to aviators and other interested parties to know what their issues or concerns are in regard to racing events at the airport,� Fleck said. The application is the latest chapter in the city’s attempt to get FAA approval for drag racing on an airport runway. The city and the office of Sen. Patty Murray, D-Bothell — along with the Port of Port Angeles and the West End Thunder racing club — have worked with the FAA since 2005 to negotiate ways to allow drag racing on airport runways on five summer weekends. FAA policy prohibits airports with grant obligations to close for nonaviation uses. The city airport has such obligations. The city of Forks, which owns the airport, and West End Thunder were granted an exception in August 2006 and extensions after that. In 2010, the FAA denied the city’s request for an extension and was told the 2011 season would be the last. During the races, airport traffic is directed to the Quillayute Airport 10 miles west of Forks.

McKenna campaign spokesman Charles McCray said the timing was a coincidence and noted the refund was made Feb. 2 and that the Feb. 9 filing was in advance of a Feb. 10 filing deadline. “The mortgage settlement is unrelated to the refunds,� he said. “The important part to focus on is that we made the refund.� The $13,800 in donations was made by three attorneys, and two wives, associated with either the law firm Routh, Crabtree, Olsen or Bellevue-based Northwest Trustee Services Inc. The law firm is an affiliate of the trustee. Northwest Trustee Services was one of more than 50 foreclosure trustees that received a letter from McKenna on Oct. 13, 2010, “regarding serious problems associated with foreclosures in the state of Washington that we have

A recent survey of 405 voters by independent pollster Stuart Elway showed McKenna with a 9-point lead over Inslee. The poll found McKenna had a 45-36 advantage over Inslee with the statewide voters who were polled. The poll was conducted last week and has a margin of error of plus or minus 5 percent. Inslee has raised a total of about $3.8 million for his campaign, raising more than $473,000 in January. McKenna has had to stop collecting donations at the end of November because state officials are prohibited from fundraising while the Legislature is in session. McKenna has raised a total of $3.73 million, according to the latest figures from the state Public Disclosure Commission. Inslee, a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, does not have to abide by the fundraising freeze because he holds federal office.

PA High talent show raises $9,000 BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — The third annual Port Angeles High School Talent Show fundraiser raised more than $9,000 to help cancersurvivor Camille Frazier, a Port Angeles para-educator, pay the bills, said Rachael Ward, student leadership adviser at Port Angeles High School. “At last count, we had just under $9,000, but as people were leaving, they were dropping off more donations,” Ward said. Students sold 352 tickets

to the talent show, which was organized by a group of 30 leadership students. The show is one of several public service activities sponsored each year by the school’s student body government.

Show winner The winner of the show was Sharona Klahn, 13, of Port Angeles. Kahn sang KT Tunstall’s country music piece “Big Black Horse and a Cherry Tree.” Even with technical difficulties — her music

wouldn’t play, so one of the other acts offered to play the guitar with her — she performed beautifully, Ward said. She received a trophy for her win, which was judged by a panel of teachers from the high school. Overall, the show went well, and students learned some lessons in organizing the event, Ward said. “It was one of those things where ‘a good time was had by all,’” she said. A few items from the silent auction, including a black handbag and a violin, went unsold.

PORT ANGELES — Sam Phillips, who has served as interim chief of Clallam County Fire District No. 2 since December, has been selected as the permanent chief. Phillips, 53, succeeds Jon Bugher as chief of the fire district that covers some 85 square miles surrounding the city of Port Angeles. Bugher, 65, retired Dec. 30 after 17 years at the helm. The district’s commissioners selected Phillips as permanent chief, with an annual salary of $90,030, in January, Phillips said. Phillips joined the fire district in August as the assistant fire chief of operations after a national search. He had retired from the Hillsboro Fire Department in Oregon, where he was deputy fire chief of administration and living in Salem, Ore. Phillips plans to establish

ax time can mean a much-needed cash “bonus” for many people. But for some people, like business owners, it can mean the opposite. Many business owners feel the pinch around tax time because in good times or bad Uncle Sam always gets his piece of the pie. Some local business owners look for creative, ethical ways to deal with tax time trauma. Local Car Dealer Mark Ostroot, from Price SuperStore is one of the most innovative when it comes to finding solutions that benefit his customers at the same time. Tax time is no different. “It’s tax time and my accountant said I need to reduce my tax burden. So I’m going to OVER PAY for your old car so I can stock my lot with traded in vehicles,” said Mark Ostroot, General Manager of Price SuperStore.

“Here’s my thought: I’d rather give money to my customers than give it to the government,” exclaimed Ostroot. “So, if I over pay for trades now, I may lower my tax burden in the future.” Ostroot continues, “Here’s the deal, I’m willing to pay you up to $4,297.00 more for your old car than it’s actually worth, no matter where you bought the car, just to satisfy my accountant.” “I’m calling this my EZ Trade Tax Time Rewards Program. You’ve probably filed an EZ form in the past to get your cash back faster. Well, I’m using my EZ Trade Program to make it simple for you to trade in the old car you hate driving and get a tax time reward of up to $4,297.00 more than it’s actually worth.”



“If you don’t have a trade-in, to help you minimize the tax season, I’ll double your tax refund up to $2,500.00, so you can own the nicer, newer car you’ve always wanted today,” explained Ostroot.

“For The People® Credit Approval Process is perfect if you have had credit problems in the past,” said Ostroot. “Using my program and your refund together could actually make it easier for you to get approved this month!”

Ostroot told us that he doesn’t care where or when you bought the car you trade in. He also doesn’t care whether it’s a lease or a loan or how many payments you have left. He wants to buy as many vehicles as he can from local residents and he is willing to pay more than the vehicle is actually worth because of the effect it could have on his tax liability down the road.

Price SuperStore has a special process to work with customers who have credit challenges They work with many lenders who specialize in approving customers with below average credit scores and have specially trained staff members who know how to put the best deal together in these more challenging financial situations. This means that Price SuperStore is able to help some people who have been turned down at other dealerships actually drive the nicer, newer car they need and want.

Customers will get up to $4,297.00 more for any car they bring in, which can make your tax time returns much greater than they would be otherwise. Ostroot asks, “What will you buy with all the extra money?”



100% approval


and we plan on coming as close to that goal as we possibly can.” “We help a lot of people with tough credit situations every single month. If there’s a way to get you approved, we’re going to go to the ends of the earth to find it. We don’t give up here. It’s our mission to help people drive a nicer, newer car. I don’t believe anyone should drive a car they hate,” Ostroot boasted.

Ostroot revealed to us that his customers don’t have to be dependent on deductions. Customers who take advantage of his EZ Trade Tax Time Rewards Program will get their tax time reward directly from the dealership even before most people see a dollar from the government. Price SuperStore will pay $4,297.00 more for your old car than it’s actually worth: t/PNBUUFSXIFSFZPVCPVHIUUIFDBS t/PNBUUFSIPXNBOZNJMFTJUIBTPOJU t/PNBUUFSJGJUTBMFBTFPSBMPBO t/PNBUUFSXIBUDPOEJUJPOJUTJO Overpaying for trade-ins will create additional expense for the dealership thereby reducing their future tax liability, while at the same time helping buyers get a great deal on a nicer, newer car today. Plus, Price SuperStore will be doubling tax refunds up to $2,500.00 if you don’t have a trade, which can be applied as a down payment on a nicer, newer car. This is perfect for anyone who wants to lower their monthly payments and can also help credit challenged customers get approved when they previously could not get they financing they need to drive a nicer, newer car.

Levy campaign button sparks complaint BY CHARLIE BERMANT

next few weeks to determine whether any action would be taken. Anderson said a range of possibilities exists. The agency could impose a fine of up to $10,000 or decide no action was warranted.


PORT TOWNSEND — A Jefferson County resident has filed a complaint with the state Public Disclosure Commission alleging that a Port Townsend School Board member’s wearing of a button in support of the recently approved school levy constituted improper electioneering. Jefferson County resident Tom Thiersch filed the complaint Tuesday, which was Election Day. He alleges that Holley Carlson’s wearing of a campaign button during a Jan. 30 School Board meeting violated a statute that prohibits electioneering by a School Board member while on school property. Superintendent Gene Laes said wearing the button did not represent a violation of existing statutes.

Buttons ‘off the table’

Holley Carlson Accused of illegal campaigning Carlson declined to comment. PDC spokeswoman Lori Anderson confirmed the complaint had been received and that it would be examined over the

While not addressing the specific case, Anderson said buttons fall under individual expression and are generally “off the table” for the PDC. Voters on Tuesday approved a four-year Port Townsend capital levy by 61.2 percent, with 3,383 approving it and 2,044, or 37 percent, rejecting it out of 5,527 votes cast. Thiersch, who opposed the levy, said he filed the action Tuesday because he didn’t want to influence the outcome of the election.

“If the levy passed, I wouldn’t want this to be seen as in any way retaliatory. If it failed, I wouldn’t want this to be seen as ‘piling on,’” he said. “Elected officials cannot be allowed to get away with ignoring our election laws.” Thiersch’s complaint says that at the Jan. 23 School Board meeting, Carlson and three other board members present were reminded by Laes that electioneering on school property was not permitted.

State’s No Child waiver request will focus on achievement gap BY DONNA GORDON BLANKINSHIP THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SEATTLE — Washington’s application for a waiver from the requirements of the federal No Child Left Behind Law will focus on efforts to close the achievement gap between kids of different races, state education officials said. The federal government already has approved all 11 of the applications from other states wanting a break from the federal student achievement law. That may bode well for Washington, but it’s by no means a guarantee of success. Superintendent of Public Instruction Randy Dorn said Wednesday that the Obama administration is helping states revise their waiver applications so they pass scrutiny. He cautioned, however, that state education officials would not be convinced to raise their proposal to a

level that isn’t attainable in order to get the waiver. “If they come back and say, you didn’t go far enough, we’ll say, ‘No, we’re not going to do that.’ We’re going to do what’s best for Washington students,” Dorn said. No Child Left Behind requires every kid in the nation to show they can do math and reading at grade level by 2014.

New goal Washington wants to trade that goal for a new one: to cut the achievement gap at every school in half by 2017. Dorn called the new goal more realistic, and said it would also help the kids most in need of help. Washington has until Feb. 28 to apply. Everyone recognizes that the original goal set every school up for failure,




Dorn said. If just one kid doesn’t pass the test used to determine how they’re doing in reading and math, then a whole school would be considered a failure in 2014. In 2011, about two-thirds of Washington schools didn’t make adequate yearly progress, according to the goals set by the state. This year’s goals do not require 100 percent of students to meet standard, but the goals ramp up each year until 2014.

Failure in 2014 Dorn predicted every school in Washington — and most likely the nation — would fail in 2014. The first states approved for flexibility in meeting the rules of No Child Left Behind are Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, Oklahoma and Tennessee.




board members privately, correcting his assertion but made no public statement about the matter. Laes said he chose to not wear a button to board meetings. Port Townsend’s capital levy will generate $1,181,500 each year for a total of $4,726,000 over four years. It will cost property owners 51 cents per $1,000 the first year and 58 cents per $1,000 each of the following years. It will go toward upgrading technology, roofs, carpets, telecommunications, sidewalks and security systems, and to renovate Grant Street School, Port Townsend High School, Blue Heron Middle School and the bus barn.

Illness traps woman and dog in car ANNABEL, A GIANT Leonberger dog, lives in a small car with her person. The pair is well known in Sequim-area parks and parking areas. The certified service dog is Martha M. an essential aide to Beverly Ireland Bennett, who is disabled because of toxic injuries and related multiple chemical sensitivities. Commonly referred to as MCS, the disability is not a mental illness or the result of substance abuse. Homelessness such as Bennett is experiencing is a common sideeffect of MCS, whose victims suffer serious physical reactions to chemical fumes from items such as cleaning solvents, perfumes and building materials, which would not have an acute effect on or be noticed by the average person.

“Forced out of their homes, jobs and communities, [MCS sufferers] enter a cycle of homelessness that they can never escape without community support,” explains the MCS website, Bennett was an active career woman in her native Florida before becoming chemically injured. After her diagnosis and significant treatment under the care of Dr. William J. Rea of Dallas, a leading specialist, “I had a life again,” she said. Bennett moved to Sequim in 1995, “able to walk and eat and help other people,” she said. For 11 years, she lived in a home rented from the Jamestown S’Klallam tribe. When the tribe redeveloped the property in 2005, Bennett received a letter of recommendation, describing her as a “conscientious tenant” who took good care of the property and paid her rent on time. Bennett has an impressive collection of such letters from people who have been able to

accommodate her from time to time, but suitable accommodations are elusive. Many others around the world face similar challenges. The Reshelter website quotes Dr. Rea: “Housing for the chemically sensitive patient is difficult to find; however, in many cases, it is essential for treatment.” On Reshelter’s Facebook page — where MCS sufferers network and exchange advice — people seeking housing vastly outnumber those offering housing. Since 2007, Bennett has been reduced to living in her car with Annabel. Paying rent is not a barrier to housing for Bennett, who receives disability benefits earned during her working years. The challenge is finding accommodations she can tolerate. The quest for a workable solution is frustrating for Bennett as well as friends and housing professionals who strive to assist her. As recently as last summer, Bennett’s doctor approved a potential rental, only to have the

Peninsula Voices Protection plan This is a response to the letter in a recent edition titled “Control of Land” [Peninsula Voices, Jan. 15]. The letter makes reference to the draft watershed protection plan put forward by the offices of Congressman [Norm] Dicks and Sen. [Patty] Murray. As a local volunteer and supporter of the Wild Olympics Campaign, I’d like to clarify a few points. The wilderness portion of the draft plan is entirely on Olympic National Forest (federal land) and primarily in areas that are out of the timber base: intact watersheds and ancient forests which are key to providing the Peninsula’s communities with clean water. Places many of us enjoy and visit often, such as the upper Dungeness and the northern portion of Mount Townsend, would receive the permanent protection they deserve. The draft also includes the designation of 23 wild and scenic rivers, all on federal or state land. This

designation protects our rivers from dams and ensures that salmon habitat, recreational opportunities and scenic beauty will be protected or enhanced. Given what we’ve already invested on the Elwha dam removals, protecting our rivers from future hydro threats makes fiscal sense. Finally, the draft plan includes a willing-seller national preserve option for areas identified as being critical salmon and other wildlife habitat, and potential threats of development. The Wild Olympics proposal gives landowners options, and allowing any willing sellers an alternative to development is a win-win. What Sen. Murray and Congressman Dicks are proposing is not about “control” but is a common-sense measure for our future. Bill Volmut, Sequim

arrangements fall through. Bennett’s physical condition continues to deteriorate while she lives in the car, making life— and housing solutions—increasingly difficult. “It is now physically impossible for me to travel,” she said, explaining why she is limited to housing options near Sequim. The ideal for Bennett would be a remote, stick-built, wheelchair-accessible, chemical-free house on the beach. Two bedrooms would provide space for medical equipment to help stabilize — or even reverse — her illness. Three bedrooms and two baths would enable her to acquire a caregiver, which she really needs. Bennett continues to be flexible, knowing that finding the ideal is unlikely. Information regarding possible housing for Bennett — whether permanent or temporary placements — can be sent to P.O. Box 1234, Carlsborg, WA 98324. Meanwhile, people continue to ask me about the lady living in

the car with her dog. Some sound more concerned about the dog than the lady. Living in a car is hard on Annabel, but the dog would be distraught if separated from her mistress, and Annabel is essential to Bennett’s survival. Annabel provides necessary support for transfers, bracing and balance and fetches small articles. The two have been a team for seven years, starting when Annabel was a puppy. Telling of her faith and hoping for a better situation for herself and Annabel, Bennett stated the obvious: “Living in a car is not OK.”

who are so diplomatic and have accomplished so much, establishing good relations with other leaders throughout the world, work at bringing about peace on Earth. I think we all should practice being kind and loving and helping one

another as much as we can. Obama plans to use half of the savings from bringing troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan to pay toward our tremendous national debt, a lot of which was started by President George W. Bush. I hope Obama can bring that about. I also hope he can improve education in the United States — I have a teacher-daughter who is working hard at that. I also hope he can bring back employment here by manufacturing products in our country rather than having our people go to other countries to help with their exports. I also hope and pray for an end to corporate loopholes and bailouts on Wall Street. I appreciate the Social Security and Medicare that I’m getting at age 88, and hope it will continue.

Exorcising that old black magic AS THOUGH BILL Donohue didn’t have enough to be cranky about. The perpetually apoplectic Catholic League president is on the rampage about President Barack Obama trying to make sure women working at Catholic institutions get insurance coverage for birth control. What’s wrong with the Maureen rhythm method anyway? That’s Dowd how I got here. Donohue took time out from hyperventilating against the president to hyperventilate against the rapper Nicki Minaj. He was in a snit about Minaj arriving at the Grammys in a red Versace cloak resembling a cardinal’s, arm in arm with an actor dressed like the pope, and her over-the-top, exorcist-themed number. “Perhaps the most vulgar part was the sexual statement that showed a scantily clad female dancer stretching backwards while an altar boy knelt between her legs in prayer,” Donohue bristled. The rapper was debuting a song called “Roman Holiday,” featuring one of her alter-egos, Roman Zolanski. She has described Roman as her gay twin sister and a lunatic, born of rage who comes out when she’s angry (or hyping a new album). It was more bizarre than outrageous, like bad vintage Madonna now that the Material Girl has gone mainstream. The only good thing about it, as Marc Hogan wrote in Spin, was the chance that her devilish song might make “Bill Donohue’s head spin while spewing green vomit.” The satanic rap was merely the latest illustration of the renewed fascination with the ancient rite of exorcism. After languishing in the Catholic Church, exorcisms are back in fashion.

In 2004, worried about the rise of the occult, Pope John Paul II asked Cardinal Ratzinger, the head of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith who went on to become Pope Benedict XVI, to direct bishops around the world to appoint and train exorcists in their dioceses. The infusion of Hispanic and African Catholics to the U.S., with their more intense belief in the supernatural, has brought a fresh demand. In 2010, American bishops held a conference in Baltimore on the topic. Last month, the low-budget shaky-cam exorcist movie, “The Devil Inside,” scored big despite sulfurous reviews. And, in a new book, Father Gabriele Amorth, the exorcist for the diocese of Rome — who has complained that yoga and Harry Potter are evil — claims that Pope Benedict exorcised two possessed men who were howling and banging their heads on the ground by blessing them. The Vatican demurred that the pope has no knowledge of this. But Father Amorth wrote that “simply the presence of the pope can soothe and in some way help the possessed in their fight against the one who possesses them.” In an interview in October with The Huffington Post, on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of The Exorcist, William Peter Blatty said his book and the Linda Blair movie resonated as an affirmation that “man is something more than a neuron net,” that “there is an intelligence, a creator whom C.S. Lewis famously alluded to as ‘the love that made the worlds.’” I recently visited Father Gary Thomas, the pastor of Sacred Heart Parish in Saratoga in Northern California, an exorcist who was the focus of a book by Matt Baglio called The Rite that became a movie last year with Anthony Hopkins. It chronicled Thomas’ demonology and exorcism training in Rome. Father Thomas thinks the time is ripe for exorcisms because “our

country is at war with itself culturally over whether or not it believes in God” and because “there is a growing amount of paganism — New Age practices like crystals, reiki, witchcraft, black magic, tarot cards, Ouija boards, seances.” He said he knows of 52 exorcising priests in America. Sitting in his office, holding a red book titled De Exorcismis Et Supplicationibus Quibusdam, (“Of Exorcisms and Certain Supplications”), he conceded that despite 75 exorcisms on eight people, his success has been limited. (Nicki Minaj told Ryan Seacrest that her mock exorcism failed, too, because Roman was too “amazing” to succumb to holy water.) The pastor explained that “soul wounds,” like sexual abuse, pornography and sexual addiction, can serve as “doorways” to demonic attachment and possession. “Demons are always looking for people who have broken relationships and no relationships,” he said. “That’s why sexual abuse mixed with the occult is the perfect cocktail. “Demons don’t have corporeal bodies like we do. They can travel faster, are far more intelligent and have a much keener sense of free will.” He’s not frightened of meeting a violent end like Fathers Merrin and Karras. “I’m protected,” he said. “I go to confession before an exorcism.” The 58-year-old priest does, however, think that Satan has tried to tempt him with “lustful urges.” “I would be in my car and have this visual rush,” he said, “and I’m like, ‘Where the hell did that come from?’” Hell?

3 tea party hopefuls target GOP fossils THE TEA PARTY isn’t dead. It’s just looking down-ballot. While fiscal conservatives remain split over the GOP presidential candidates, grass-roots activists are coalescing around a stellar slate of limited-government candidates looking to reinforce and re-energize the right in Washington. And in the spirit of the Michelle modern-day tea Malkin party movement, no entrenched incumbent — Democrat or Republican — is safe. Utah was ground zero for the movement’s first major electoral upset. In April 2009, this column first reported on a Salt Lake City tea party protest of 2,000 Utahans who repeatedly booed GOP Sens. Bob Bennett and Orrin Hatch for supporting the $700 billion TARP bank bailout. In May 2010, the three-term, 76-year-old Bennett got the boot at the GOP state convention. Young conservative lawyer Mike Lee, who clerked for Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, went on to win the seat. Now, young conservative entrepreneur and renowned state pension reformer Dan Liljenquist is taking on Utah’s other big-government Republican barnacle, 77-year-old Hatch. Liljenquist excelled in the private sector as a global management consultant and business strategist; he also helmed a privately owned call center company that grew from two to 1,500 employees since its 1995 founding. Liljenquist was elected to the Utah Senate in 2008, where he spearheaded state pension and Medicaid reforms that earned him

the nonpartisan Governing magazine’s 2011 “Public Official of the Year” award. The 36-year, six-term Hatch was first elected in 1976 on an anti-entrenched incumbent platform. Hatch’s campaign line then against his opponent Frank Moss: “What do you call a senator who’s served in office for 18 years? You call him home.” Now, Hatch is clinging to power after almost four decades in government — and vainly attempting to claim the tea party mantle to stave off Liljenquist’s David vs. Goliath primary challenge. Hatch co-sponsored the $6 billion national service boondoggle and dedicated it to his good friend Teddy Kennedy, with whom he also joined hands to create the ever-expanding SCHIP health care entitlement. He slobbered over corruptocrat Democratic Sen. Chris Dodd, supported tax cheat Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner from Day One, lavished praise on Joe Biden’s manhood and embraced and defended Attorney General Eric Holder’s nomination because, he said, “I like Barack Obama, and I want to help him if I can.” In Indiana, another aging liberal Republican dinosaur is fighting for his political life by masquerading as a tea party standard-bearer. The six-term 79-year-old Sen. Dick Lugar — who prides himself on being Obama’s favorite Republican — hasn’t lived in his home state since 1977. He supported the Obama stimulus law, job-killing environmental mandates and the taxpayer bailouts of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, as well as the auto and banking industry bailouts. Richard Mourdock, Indiana’s former state treasurer, offers a fresh alternative with widespread support from both grassroots activists and local and state GOP officials.

While others hedged their bets, Mourdock took the federal auto bailout head on, lodging a court complaint against the Chrysler bailout to expose its illegal abuse of shareholders and punitive impact on Indiana citizens. He was elected to the treasurer’s office in 2006, a tough year for Republicans, and was re-elected handily in 2010. Before politics, he worked in the private sector for 30 years managing businesses in the energy, environmental and construction industries. He’s never had a Beltway ZIP code. In Texas, young attorney Ted Cruz is making waves in the GOP race to replace retiring GOP Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison. The former Texas solicitor general is a 10th Amendment scholar who doesn’t just speak the tea party’s language. Cruz has put constitutional conservatism into action, winning many of the 40 cases he has argued in front of the Supreme Court. Cruz isn’t afraid to challenge the GOP establishment. In 2008, he successfully battled the Bush administration and meddling globalists all the way to the high court to prevent international law from superseding American sovereignty. The GOP needs just four seats to take control of the Senate. With inspired and inspiring free-market candidates like Dan Liljenquist, Richard Mourdock and Ted Cruz, 2012 bodes well for the tea party footprint on Capitol Hill. Remember: Entrenched incumbency is the disease. Fresh blood is the cure.

Peninsula Men’s Gospel Singers set to perform BY DIANE URBANI




PORT ANGELES — Be ready, Penny Hall says, to have a spring put in your step. Hall, accompanist with the 19-voice Peninsula Men’s Gospel Singers, will join up with them tonight to deliver 15 numbers, from the traditional to the contemporary. “This is one of our big concerts,” added bass singer Dave Meyer. “Eleven of these numbers are new. Only four are old favorites.” From “Soon and Very Soon” to “Blow the Trumpet in Zion,” the singers will cover the gamut in their 7 p.m. performance at the Independent Bible Church Worship Center, 116 E. Ahlvers Road. Admission is by donation, and Karen Coles will provide signlanguage interpretation throughout. “There is nothing like men singing with complete conviction,” Hall said. If people want to leave feeling better than they did when they came, she added, this is the concert for them.


Movies, books and discussions are among the activities on the North Olympic Peninsula this weekend. For information about the Playwrights’ Festival in Port Townsend — where new plays and works-in-progress will debut — and other arts and entertainment events, see Peninsula Spotlight, the Peninsula Daily News’ weekly entertainment guide, in today’s print edition.

30 Million Dollars in Washington scholarships are available... Find yours now!


Students in grades three through eight will compete using machines of their own design shooting at a medieval castle target. Winners in each division will receive scholarship prizes. The trebuchet is an ancient gravity-powered war machine designed to throw rocks and fireballs at enemy targets. It generally was used to knock down

fortress walls during medieval battles. The trebuchet is of special design because it uses a sling attached to the arm of a simple lever to give the weapon’s projectiles far greater velocity and distance than the catapult. SEF-sponsored afterschool Engineering Clubs give students hands-on instruction in the mechanics of the lever action and understanding of the physics of acceleration at work in the sling. SEF Director Walt Johnson has been chairman of the Engineering Challenge, with Bryce Fish, Dave Hasenpflug, Taylor Olson, Bill Olson and Dick Hughes serving on the planning committee. Teachers Carla Morton, Hasenpflug and Joe Landoni have worked with students competing in the event. Previous Engineering Challenges have included the Egg Drop, Popsicle Stick Bridge Building and Mars Rover Contests. For more information, visit

Lent offers opportunity to reflect BEGINNING WITH ASH Wednesday next week, Christians around the world are preparing to enter into the season of Lent. One of the oldest traditions in the church, this season of penitence and fasting lasts for 40 days prior to our celebration of the Resurrection at Easter. I have noticed over the years that people tend to respond to Lent in very different ways. There are those who try to ignore it altogether. Lent can be a difficult season in the church year. During this time, we talk about many of the uncomfortable aspects of our faith. From our mortality to Jesus’ crucifixion, the lessons and subject matter for Lent can be upsetting, and some people simply get through this time on the way to Easter and the Resurrection. They count the days until we can move on. For the rest of us, our approach to this time often involves a combination of feeling, acting, thinking and praying.


Lent becomes a time that brings change and involves discipline. It is a time to begin new ministries and proj-

ects. For others, Lent is primarily an opportunity for reflection, reading and study; a time to think about life, ponder the mystery of God and focus on the things that are so often overlooked. For these folks, Lent is a season of new discovery. They search for understanding and find inspiration in the words and thoughts of others.

Spiritual growth

To think about God, to examine life, to explore both sacred experience and writings are the essence of their spiritual growth. I also have known people who see Lent as a time for spiritual depth and Personal testing regeneration through a more disciplined prayer Those who experience life.

any candidate or party. The guidelines published by the Archdiocese of Mexico on its website appear to closely skirt the restriction. But the issue is a sensitive one in Mexico, where harsh anti-clerical laws sparked the 1926-1929 Cristero war, an uprising by Roman Catholic rebels against Mexico’s secular government in which tens of thousands of people died. While loosened in the 1990s, many restrictions on church activities in Mexico remain. The latest guidelines do not mention any party, saying only that Catholics cannot “choose as a political option those who support or promote false rights or liberties that attack the teachings contained in the Holy Scriptures, tradition and doctrine of the Church.” That appeared to be a reference to gay marriage and abortion rights, both of which the church has hotly opposed. The guidelines also say Catholics “should be alert to the commitments of the candidates and their parties to respect the foremost of all rights, which is the right to life, from the moment of conception.” The suggestions appear aimed especially at candidates of the leftist Democratic Revolution Party, which has enacted both gay marriage and legalized abortion in Mexico City.

GM posts its highest profit ever: $7.6 billion BY TOM KRISHER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DETROIT — Just two years after it was rescued and reconstituted through bankruptcy and a government bailout, General Motors Co. cruised through 2011 to post the biggest profit in its history. The 103-year-old company, leaner and smarter under new management, cut costs by taking advantage of its size around the globe. And its new products boosted sales so much that it has reclaimed the title of world’s biggest automaker from Toyota. GM may have a hard time breaking this record in 2012 because it is losing money in Europe and South America, and U.S. sales growth slowed in the last three months. But the company’s perfor-

debate about spending $49.5 billion in taxpayer dollars to save GM. But it did drive up the company’s stock price, which could help the government get more of its money back.

The bailout of GM and Chrysler Group LLC, begun by George W. Bush and finished by Barack Obama, remains a major issue in this year’s presidential campaign. It’s so politically charged that even a Super Bowl ad celebrating Chrysler’s rebirth caused arguments. GM, which released its earnings Thursday, performed best in its home territory, posting a $7.2 billion pretax profit in North America. The numbers were so good that 47,500 blue-collar workers will get $7,000 profit-sharing checks, the maximum allowable under their new union contract. International Operations, which includes Asia, made $1.9 billion before taxes, but that was down from 2010.

Foreclosure rate edges higher BY ALEX VEIGA THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES — Banks took back more U.S. homes in January than in the previous month, the latest sign that foreclosures are accelerating after slowing sharply last year while lenders sorted out foreclosure-abuse claims. Foreclosures rose 8 per-

cent nationally last month from December, but were down 15 percent from a year earlier, foreclosure listing firm RealtyTrac Inc. said Thursday. Despite the annual decrease at the national level, some states posted sharp increases compared to January 2011. In New Hampshire, foreclosures jumped 62 percent. In Mas-

sachusetts, 75 percent. That trend is expected to strengthen this year in light of last week’s $25 billion settlement between the nation’s biggest mortgage lenders and 49 state attorneys general over the industry’s handling of foreclosures. Many banks and mortgage servicers processed foreclosures without verifying documents. Some

employees signed papers they hadn’t read or used fake signatures to speed foreclosures — a practice dubbed “robo-signing.� Major banks temporarily put foreclosures on hold after the problems surfaced in the fall of 2010. Some had to refile previously filed foreclosure cases and revisit pending cases to prevent errors.

Amanda Knox lands book deal for memoir Untitled tome scheduled for 2013 release BY HILLEL ITALIE THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — Amanda Knox has a book deal. The young exchange student whose conviction in Italy and eventual acquittal on murder charges made headlines worldwide has an agreement with HarperCollins to tell her story. The 24-year-old Seattle resident, imprisoned for four years in Perugia, Italy, has not publicly discussed her ordeal beyond a brief expression of gratitude upon her release last October. “Knox will give a full and unflinching account of the events that led to her arrest in Perugia and her struggles with the complexities of the Italian judicial system,� HarperCollins said in a statement Thursday. “Aided by journals she kept during her imprisonment, Knox will talk about her harrowing experience at the hands of the Italian police and later prison guards and inmates. She will reveal never


Amanda Knox addresses a news conference shortly after her arrival at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in Seattle in 2011. before-told details surrounding her case, and describe how she used her inner strength and strong family ties to cope with the most challenging time of her young life.�

Tentative release The book, currently untitled, is tentatively scheduled for early 2013. “Many accounts have been written of the Amanda Knox case, and countless writers and reporters have speculated on what role, if any, was played by Knox in that tragic and terrifying

sequence of events,� HarperCollins publisher Jonathan Burnham said in a statement. “No one has yet heard Amanda Knox’s own account of what happened, and this book will give Knox an opportunity to tell the story in full detail, for the first time. It will be the story of a crime and a trial, but also a moving account of a young woman’s struggle to cope with a nightmarish ordeal that placed her at the center of a media storm, and led to her imprisonment.�

Burnham said that Knox, who studied creative writing, would work with a collaborator and that her book will cover her life in Perugia leading up to the murder of 21-year-old British student Meredith Kercher, along with an account of the events surrounding the murder. Knox’s editor will be Claire Wachtel, whose other authors have included crime novelist Dennis Lehane, journalist Cokie Roberts and U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison of Texas.

‘Great track record’ $4 million deal? Financial terms were not disclosed, but an official with knowledge of the negotiations said the deal was worth $4 million for world rights. The official was not authorized to discuss the negotiations and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. Knox was represented by Washington attorney Robert Barnett, whose other clients include President Barack Obama and former President George W. Bush. Some 20 publishers were interested, and Knox met with seven, all of whom submitted bids during a recent auction.

“Claire has a great track record of working with high-profile figures,� Burnham said. “She’s a very sensitive, responsive editor who I think can work with someone like Amanda, who’s new to the experience.� Publishers in recent years have shied from controversial defendants, but Burnham said he was deeply impressed by Knox when he met with her. “The experience of actually sitting down in a room and talking for an hour, an hour and a half with Amanda made me realize this was a very mature, intelligent woman who had been through an extraordi-

nary experience,� Burnham said. “She’ll write a very thoughtful, reflective and serious book about what happened. And that moves this book away from the world of tabloids, the lurid side, to something more compelling and, in a way, more longstanding.� Judge Claudio Pratillo Hellman, the Italian appeals court judge who freed Knox, broadly criticized the investigation and conviction of Knox. In a 143-page document released in December, Hellman wrote that she had been pressed to make statements against her own interest and strongly questioned the reliability of a pair of key witnesses.

More legal problems Knox’s legal issues are not over. Earlier this week, Italian prosecutors asked the country’s highest criminal court to reinstate the murder convictions of Knox and her former boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito. Prosecutor Giovanni Galati said he is “very convinced� that Sollecito and Knox were responsible for the Nov. 1, 2007, stabbing death of Kercher, who shared an apartment with

Knox in Perugia. Kercher was found in a pool of blood. The appeals court in October said the guilty verdicts against the pair were not corroborated by any evidence, and that the court hadn’t proven they were in the house when Kercher was killed. A third defendant, Ivory Coast-born Rudy Guede, was convicted in a separate trial of sexually assaulting and stabbing Kercher. His 16-year sentence, reduced in appeal from an initial 30 years, was upheld by Italy’s highest court in 2010. Meanwhile, a lawyer for Knox recently filed an appeal of her slander conviction in Italy. The same court that overturned her murder conviction upheld the charges for slander — for falsely accusing bar owner Diya “Patrick� Lumumba of involvement in the slaying. Lumumba was freed after two weeks in prison for lack of evidence. Knox later said she was “manipulated� during her lengthy police interrogation. An Italian judge set Knox’s sentence for slander at three years, less than the time she spent in prison. That meant she could leave Italy and return to Seattle.

State exports OLYMPIA — Exports of Washington products hit a record $64.6 billion in 2011, an increase of 21 percent over the previous year. That’s according to the World Institute for Strategic Economic Research.

In a statement Thursday, Gov. Chris Gregoire called it welcome news, given that Washington is the most trade-dependent state in the nation. Washington is the largest U.S. exporter on a per capita basis. The largest market for Washington goods continued to be China, where 2011 exports rose 9 percent to $11.2 billion. Exports to

Europe increased 23 percent to $6.4 billion. Gregoire said the strong performance puts Washington closer to meeting the goals of an initiative launched in 2010 to increase exports 30 percent by 2015.

Powell won’t be buried near 2 sons Mother originally chose grave site close to boys BY GENE JOHNSON THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SEATTLE — The man who killed his two sons in an explosive house fire in Washington will not be buried in the same cemetery as the children, his family said Thursday. Josh Powell’s mother, Terri Powell, issued a written statement confirming the family had given up a plot tentatively reserved at Woodbine Cemetery overlooking the boys’ grave. “We have tried so hard to be loving and considerate and respectful in making Josh’s burial arrangements,” she said. “We love our little Charlie and Braden and want their resting place to be a place of peace and comfort.” Powell, the husband of missing Utah woman Susan Powell, killed his 5- and 7-year-old sons and himself in a gas-fueled blaze Feb. 5 at a home he was renting in Graham.

Thousands of mourners More than 1,000 mourners attended the boys’ funeral Saturday. They were later buried in a single casket at Woodbine, a municipal cemetery in Puyallup. Terri Powell, wracked by grief, realized early this week that no one else was planning for what to do with Josh Powell’s remains, said her son-in-law, Kirk Graves. She visited a funeral home and a few cemeteries, he said, and she “cluelessly” picked a grave site just up the hill from where the boys are buried.

The decision prompted a public firestorm. The parents of Susan Powell threatened legal action to keep Josh Powell from being buried so close, and the anti-crime organization Crime Stoppers of Tacoma-Pierce County purchased the plots on either side of the boys to ensure he didn’t wind up next to them.

Less than a day Crime Stoppers raised about $20,000 in donations for the effort in less than a day. “We felt very strongly that it wasn’t appropriate to put him anywhere near the boys, and we did our best over the last 48 hours to convince her to do something different,” Graves said. “It wasn’t that hard to convince her; she just got started off on the wrong path.”

Grandparents relieved Attorney Steve Downing, who represents Susan Powell’s parents, Charles and Judy Cox, said they were immensely relieved. Josh Powell was a suspect in Susan Powell’s 2009 disappearance from their home in West Valley City, Utah. He had always claimed that he didn’t know what happened to his wife. He took the boys — then 2 and 4 — on a midnight camping trip in freezing weather in the Utah desert, he said, and when he returned home the next day, authorities were at the house looking for her.


Supervised visit A social worker brought them to Josh Powell’s rental home for what was supposed to be a court-sanctioned supervised visit. Josh Powell let the boys inside, locked the social worker out, hit them with a hatchet and set fire to gasoline, authorities said. A judge had recently ordered that Josh Powell undergo a psycho-sexual evaluation if he hoped to regain custody, and in a last-minute message to his sister, he said he couldn’t live without his boys.

Small plane crashes at Mount Si; three die Victims remain unidentified BY TED WARREN THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NORTH BEND — Sheriff’s deputies recovered the bodies Wednesday of three people killed in a singleengine plane crash in a popular hiking and climbing area east of Seattle. A team on the ground carried out one body more than a mile through rugged terrain. The others were airlifted by a King County helicopter to a medical examiner’s van at a landing zone near North Bend. Early Wednesday, the sheriff’s helicopter followed an emergency locator signal to the site of the crash on the Little Si area of Mount Si.

Ground searchers reached the scene about 30 miles from Seattle at daylight and found the bodies of two men and a woman in the four-seat Cessna 172, Sgt. Cindi West said. There was no immediate information on their identities or the itinerary of the flight.

The plane crashed about 2:30 a.m. on the southeast face of the mountain, West said. Residents reported hearing a plane sputtering and an explosion.

Nighttime flying under visual rules without contacting air traffic control is permitted and not unusual, said NTSB investigator Wayne Pollack in Los Angeles before he flew to Washington. He planned to examine the wreckage Thursday, looking into the weather at the time, the pilot’s background and the airplane’s maintenance. He’ll decide whether the wreckage has to be reconstructed at another location for a closer inspection.

Salmon State action for three derby to attract sports; district hoops crowds PENINSULA DAILY NEWS


IF YOU THINK you will get the Strait of Juan de Fuca mostly to yourself for this weekend’s salmon derby — think again. The big dailies in the Seattle, Tacoma and Everett areas all are touting the North Olympic Peninsula’s Presidents Day weekend salmon derby in their outdoors sections this week. The ever-popular 2012 Olympic Peninsula Salmon Derby, sponsored by the Gardiner Salmon Derby Association, will attract from 800 to 1,000 anglers and go three days, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Luckily, there is a lot of room to fish for the out-of-towners and all the area anglers jostling in their favorite spots. Like last year, the derby includes 500 square miles of fishing and five weigh stations. And besides the fun of fishing, this giant derby also has a grand prize of $10,000 for the biggest fish. The winter blackmouth classic is part of the Northwest Marine Trade Association’s “Northwest Salmon Derby Series.” Brian Menkal of Brian’s Sporting Goods and More (360-683-1950) in Sequim said this weekend’s derby could very well attract a thousand or more anglers. “The derby gets a lot of people,” Menkal said. “Especially a lot of local people. It is a huge area for the derby. “Last year they added the Port Angeles and Freshwater Bay area to the derby and they picked up a huge amount of people. “People in Port Angeles could fish at their favorite spots. “Last year, Freshwater Bay had the best quantity of fish in the derby, but Port Townsend and Discovery Bay had the best quality. “I don’t know how it will be this year.” The good news is that blackmouth fishing has opened with a bang, just in time for the derby. Blackmouth season opened Thursday, and Menkal had heard by noon of anglers finding fish. “There’s fish out there,” Menkal said. “I had a guy just show me one he caught that was 15 pounds.”

Rainy weather Rain is predicted off and on this holiday weekend, but that shouldn’t affect the ocean fishing. The wind, though, that’s a different story. “The wind always is a big factor in the ocean,” Menkal said. “If it is breezy, you’ll have to troll. But if it’s calm, you can do anything. You can jig, mooch, do herring off the bottom or troll.” The $10,000 cash prize for first isn’t the only prize for this derby. This year’s prize list is worth more than $21,000. Port Townsend will have plenty of derby action, but four other launch ramps will also be serving the anglers expected to fish the derby. Volunteers will staff weigh stations at all five launch ramps: Freshwater Bay, Ediz Hook in Port Angeles, John Wayne Marina in Sequim, Gardiner and Port Townsend Boat Haven. The event uses selective fishery — only clipped-fin (hatchery) winter blackmouth chinook salmon can be submitted. Tickets for the event cost $40 for one day or all three days. Tickets are on sale at many area merchants, and also online at www. Tickets will also be available at the five launch ramps, but only on Saturday. This event benefits emergency and other vital services for Gardiner, Diamond Point and nearby communities. In addition to the top prizes, awarded by weight, there are three Mystery Fish prizes ($1,000, $500, and $500) that anybody can win. The awards ceremony will be held on Monday at the Gardiner Boat Ramp at 2 p.m. TURN

Pirates barely avoid upset Men hold off last-place team PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — The Peninsula College men’s basketball team survived an upset bid by winning 66-65 on Wednesday night. A David and Goliath story was unfolding in the Peninsula College gym as the NWAACC North Division’s last-place Everett Trojans were leading the third-ranked and secondplace Pirates 65-59 with 1:21 to play. Everett’s veteran head coach Larry Walker had appropriately prepared his men for the battle and the game was their’s to win. Peninsula head coach Lance Von Vogt, however, was not ready to surrender — and his men rose to the occasion. Sophomore guard Tyler Funk drained a 3-pointer from right in front of his bench to close the gap to 65-62 with 57 seconds to go, giving Pirate fans a glimmer of hope. With a four-guard, full-court pressure line-up in the game, Sam Waller stole the inbounds pass and scored to close it to 65-64 with 54 seconds showing on the scoreboard clock. The Pirates’ defense then got its biggest stop of the game, getting the ball back with 18 seconds left, setting up a final door-die possession. With the clock ticking down, Waller, a sophomore guard out of Chino, Calif., put his head down and drove down the left side of the lane, putting up a floater over a sea of red shirts. TURN

Proposed arena could house Sonics Investor trying to bring NBA and NHL to Seattle BY TIM BOOTH THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SEATTLE — Christopher Hansen is making a $290 million proposal to his hometown that could be the impetus for a new sports arena that could bring the NBA and NHL to Seattle. All he needs is city and county approval and the two franchises to make it a reality. Hansen submitted a proposal to the city on Thursday that calls for $290 million in private investment, plus the cost of acquiring an NBA franchise, to help construct a facility that would cost between $450 million and $500 million. According to a letter submit-

ted by the Seattle native to the city, the remaining construction and development costs would be financed by the city and King Hansen County using taxes and revenues generated by the new facility and rent charged to the teams playing in the arena. City officials are adamant that there will be no new public taxes needed for the building. The city and county’s debt service for the arena would be capped at $200 million. The entire project is contingent on Hansen and his investors finding a franchise to make Seattle its home for the long haul. Language in the proposal would call for a 30-year lease with a no-relocation clause.

“There will be no arena unless there is an agreement to get a team here to occupy that arena over a very long term,” King County executive Dow Constantine said at an afternoon press conference that was part pep rally.

Root of problem The proposal represents the first significant step toward solving the arena problem that was at the root of the SuperSonics’ move from Seattle to Oklahoma City following the 2008 NBA season. The proposal will now go before a review board — a group of community leaders that includes one-time SuperSonics player and coach Lenny Wilkens — with Constantine hoping their review can be completed within a month. But Seattle’s announcement alone is likely to ramp up pres-

sure in places like Sacramento, New Orleans and Phoenix, whose NBA and NHL futures are tenuous. “It could mean that the Seattle SuperSonics could play in our city once again,” Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn said. Hansen, a wealthy hedgefund manager based in San Francisco, was not at Thursday’s news conference but in an interview with The Seattle Times on Wednesday he said a sense of civic pride and his longtime support of the SuperSonics were at the root of his desire to put together one of the largest privately financed arena packages in pro basketball or hockey. City officials say the $290 million in private investment would be the third-most among NBA or NHL arenas, behind only Staples Center in Los Angeles and Madison Square Garden.

NEW YORK — Gary Carter was nicknamed “Kid” for good reason. His smile, bubbly personality and eagerness to excel on a ballfield made him a joy to watch at the plate and behind it. Even his Hall of Fame bronze plaque at Cooperstown shows him with a toothy grin — the Kid forever. The star catcher, whose single for the New York Mets in the 1986 World Series touched off one of the most improbable rallies in baseball, died Thursday. He was 57. Carter was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor last May, two weeks after finishing his second season as coach at Palm Beach Atlantic University. “I am deeply saddened to tell you all that my precious dad went to be with Jesus today at 4:10 p.m.,” Carter’s daughter, Kimmy Bloemers, wrote on the family website. “This is the most difficult thing I have ever had to write in my entire life.”

Outdoors: Three beaches open to clamming lamming up The final evening razorclam dig of the season will take place Saturday and Sunday on three ocean beaches. After that, clam diggers can look forward to a series of digs on morning tides. Evening digs at Long Beach, Twin Harbors and Mocrocks beaches have been approved by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) for this weekend after marine toxin tests showed that the clams on those beaches are safe to eat. No digging will be allowed at any beach before noon. Copalis Beach will remain closed for razorclam digging this month, due to a relatively low abundance of clams. That closure will affect beaches near Ocean Shores, Oyhut, Ocean City and Copalis. Kalaloch, the closest beach to the Peninsula, also will remain closed, due to a low abundance of razor clams. The National Park Service, which manages that beach in cooperation with WDFW, has announced plans to open Kalaloch for a razor-clam dig April 7-9. For the upcoming dig, the evening low tide Saturday is at 4:13 p.m. (0.0 feet), and on Sunday at 5 p.m. (-0.2 feet). Diggers should hit the beach one to two hours before evening low tide for best results. Once the harvest is totaled for this month’s dig, WDFW will announce plans for future digs, starting in early March. Because of the change in tides that occurs in spring, those digs will all be held during morning hours. 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 an applicable 2011-12 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:// and from license vendors around the state.

Fun ’n’ Advice






DEAR ABBY: My father died suddenly a year ago. My sister went to his house and discovered something that deeply disturbed her. Dad was secretly gay. There were lots of materials in his home that I’m sure he never intended for us to find. Personally, I find his interests fascinating, but my sister was unhinged by it. After all, she was the one who made the discovery. Now she’s obsessed with finding out if Dad was having relations with men while Mom was alive, and if he did, did Mom know about it. I have tried telling her that there were probably lots of things that happened between our parents that are none of our business, but my sister can’t let it go. She also seems upset that my reaction isn’t the same as hers. I’m glad Dad was fulfilling his needs, especially in old age. My sister was always “Daddy’s girl.” Any suggestions on how I can help her?

Dear Really Expecting: Your co-worker appears to be mentally disturbed. This is something that should be discussed with Amber’s supervisor, so perhaps an intervention can be done and she can get the help she needs. Because there is no way to predict how she might react if her fantasy is threatened, you should not be the person to question it. If she’s taking time from work for OB/GYN appointments, her employer could request a note from the doctor. Dear Abby: I have been dating “Jared,” who is the nephew of my sister’s husband. Due to the family situation, this is a very weird relationship. I was widowed at 22. I am now 27, and this is the first relationship I have had since my husband died. I’m not sure what to do. Is it wrong to date Jared? How do I introduce him to family and friends? My sister always refers to him as her nephew. That makes me feel like my relationship with him is incestuous. Mixed Up in Wisconsin Dear Mixed Up: Because Jared isn’t a blood relative, your relationship with him is not incestuous. Introduce him to family and friends as Jared, the friend you’re dating. If the relationship becomes more serious, introduce him as Jared, your boyfriend or fiance. But please stop feeling guilty about your relationship because you’re doing nothing wrong.

Dear Abby: I have a co-worker, “Amber,” who has always been large. She has looked like she was pregnant the entire two years I have known her. She also can be a liar and an attention-seeker. I am pregnant for real. Soon after Amber found out, she began telling our co-workers that she, too, is pregnant — with twins. She has said this before, and then she faked a miscarriage. She is now bringing ultrasound pictures to work that I discovered she had downloaded from Google Images. Everyone knows Amber is lying, but she keeps it going like she believes it herself.

Dear Son: I’m not sure you can. But a trained therapist might be able to. Your sister’s discovery was a shock because “Daddy’s girl” now realizes she didn’t know her father as well as she thought she did. It is almost impossible to determine who knew what and when if both the individuals are dead. I hope, with time, your sister will be able to focus on the good times she had with her father and her obsession will lessen.

9931 Legal Notices 9931 Legal Notices Clallam County Clallam County NOTICE OF DETERMINATION OF NONSIGNIFICANCE P.U.D. No. 1 of Clallam County has issued a determination of nonsignificance (DNS) under the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) Rules, Chapter 197-11 WAC, for the following project: Rebuilding the existing substation to a new 69kVx115kV/ 12.5kV electrical substation by enlarging the existing site from 0.53 acres to 0.8 acres, removing wood pole structures and other aged equipment and installing steel structures, a new power transformer, voltage regulators, breakers and a control enclosure. The project is located on an 0.8 acre parcel of land at the southwest corner of Laird Road and Power Plant road in that portion of the northeast quarter of the northwest quarter of section 14, township 30 north, range 7 west.

A murderer among them PA theater group brings Christie mystery to stage BY DIANE URBANI DE LA PAZ PENINSULA SPOTLIGHT

PORT ANGELES — Nancy Beier wants to take you on a pleasure cruise. And it is not your usual fare. This trip is a voyage of intrigue on one of the world’s great rivers — and it’s far better, Beier believes, than the bigscreen version. This is Agatha Christie’s “Murder on the Nile,” directed by Beier and opening tonight for a threeweek run at the Port Angeles Community Playhouse. Do not expect it to be like the film, the director instructs. “The movie was quite horrible,” Beier said of “Death on the Nile,” the 1978 picture starring Peter Ustinov and Mia Farrow. “Agatha Christie should be fun,” she added, “and that movie is not.”

Enter the Port Angeles Community Players, with their treatment of this psychological mystery. They’re “fabulous,” Beier said. The play is juicy stuff, and “the character studies are very interesting,” as are “the way the young people handle their problems.”

Up the river together To begin with, we have Simon Mostyn (Jeremiah Paulsen) and Kay Mostyn, his well-off bride played by Nikki Adams — plus Simon’s previous fiancee, Jacqueline de Severac (Amy Meyer). They’re all on this boat together. So that’s obviously a problem. Then comes more trouble: a murder. And we’re off down the river, with Louise the French maid (Hope Chamberlain), the steward (Tim Chamberlain), Miss ffoliot-

May we help?

“Murder on the Nile,” opening tonight in Port Angeles, features, from left at rear, Hope Chamberlain, Nikki Adams, Jeremiah Paulsen, Amy Meyer, Tim Chamberlain, Cherie Trebon and Sean Peck-Collier. Seated at the front table are Erin Henninger and Josh McLean. ffoulkes (Cherie Trebon), a pair of beadsellers played by Robert Stephens and Chris Eddleman, Canon Ambrose Pennefather (Philip Young) and Dr. Bessner (Brian Coughenour).

Interconnected Each has a connection to the murder. Pennefather is “the sleuth who figures things out,” said Young. He’s also the one who delivers most of the play’s messages. “Murder on the Nile” is dryly funny at times, the actor added, but it’s not principally a comedy. “It’s got an intrigue,”

Young said. “It’s a morality play.” This show also has all of the markings of a classic community production, Beier added. In the play, Trebon’s character is the aunt of Christina Grant (Erin Henninger). Off stage, Trebon is in fact Henninger’s aunt.

Veteran and newbie Young, at 68, is one of Port Angeles’ theater veterans. Noel Coward’s “Nude with Violin” and Christie’s “Black Coffee” are among his recent productions. Meanwhile, Josh McLean, who portrays an arrogant guy named Smith in “Murder,” is relatively

new on the scene. An Olympic National Park ranger who has always wanted to be involved in theater, McLean calls his role “a blast.” Smith is a ne’er-do-well, flippant and smart. But he’s not quite smart enough, McLean said, to solve the mystery at hand. So “he spends most of the play making observations about the other people, and generally leaping to the wrong conclusions.” “Murder” is a dark tale, in counterpoint to McLean’s first production in Port Angeles. He appeared in “Cannibal! The Musical,” the “South Park” creator Trey Parker’s

comic romp last fall at Peninsula College. Tonight through March 4, “Murder on the Nile” unfolds at 7:30 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and Tuesdays, and at 2 p.m. Sundays at the Port Angeles Community Playhouse, 1235 E. Lauridsen Blvd. Tickets are $12 for adults or $6 for students at Odyssey Books, 114 W. Front St., except for Tuesdays, when all seats are $6 at the door.

From the classic to the contemporary Cypress String Quartet to play at Fort Worden BY DIANE URBANI DE LA PAZ PENINSULA SPOTLIGHT

PORT TOWNSEND — The internationally known Cypress String Quartet comes to the Wheeler Theater at Fort Worden State Park for a concert of Mendelssohn, Beethoven and beyond at 2 p.m. Sunday. The concert, presented by Centrum’s Port Townsend Chamber Music Festival, will include Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 15 and Mendelssohn’s String Quartet No. 2 — both in A minor — plus “Lento Assai,� a work by contemporary composer Kevin Puts. Right after the performance, music lovers are invited to meet the Cypress String Quartet’s members, who hail from San Francisco.

The Cypresses, as they’re called, are violinists Cecily Ward and Tom Stone, violist Ethan Filner and cellist Jennifer Kloetzel, together as quartet since 1996. The group takes its name from the set of 12 love songs for string quartet, “The Cypresses,â€? by Antonin DvorĂĄk.

Great works The quartet has commissioned and premiered more than 30 new works, four of which are now included on Chamber Music America’s list of “101 Great American Ensemble Works.� The players maintain a busy international tour schedule, and have played at the Kennedy Center and the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., and the

and Response� project, in which composers write works inspired by masterpieces in the standard repertoire. “Lento Assai� itself was inspired by Mendelssohn’s Quartet, Op. 13 in A minor and Beethoven’s Op. 132 Quartet, the two other pieces featured on Sunday’s program. It premiered at the Library of Congress on Feb. 6, 2009. The Mendelssohn quartet to be played Sunday was written in 1827, the year of Beethoven’s death. Mendelssohn found Beethoven’s late quartets to be incredible marvels, and he made a careful study of them, adapting some of Beethoven’s ideas into his own music. The Op. 13 Quartet takes many of its themes, including a solo for the first violin, exactly from Beethoven’s Op. 132 Quartet, also on the afternoon’s program. Tickets to Sunday’s concert range from $25 to $30 at Patrons may also reserve seats by phoning 800-7461982 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday, or between 6 a.m. and noon Sunday; a processing fee applies.

The play’s the thing Playwrights’ Festival brings new scripts to stage in PT BY DIANE URBANI




nside the 66-seat Key City Playhouse, life is unfolding, in all its comic, work-in-progress glory. This version of life, distilled into performances, is known as the 16th annual Key City Public Theatre Playwrights’ Festival, running through the coming week and wrapping next Sunday, Feb. 26. The festival is a showcase of new plays and local playwrights, from “Senior Street Show” by Deborah Daline of Port Townsend to “Dream Voyeur” by Jack O’Connor of Chimacum to “Diary of a M.A.D Caregiver” by Denise Runyon Fleener. Then there are three one-act plays, “Parrot,” “PRNYC” and “The Rug,” presented together at 8 p.m. today and Saturday, from Port Townsend-area playwrights Sandy Diamond, Mark Rose and Richard Weston.


These one-acts mix humor with serious subjects, said Erin Lamb, Key City’s production coordinator. “Each has a subtle, surprise ending,” she added. The festival also offers theater workshops including the TeenLab led by nationally known playwright and actress Constance Congdon. Congdon will coach 13- to 18-year-olds Saturday from 6 p.m. till 9 p.m., and then present a show-

case of their work at 5:30 p.m. next Friday, Feb. 24. To sign up for Saturday’s TeenLab workshop, which costs $45, phone Key City Public Theatre at 360379-0195. For adults, Congdon is offering a free playwriting class from 10 a.m. till 1 p.m. this Saturday and an $85 advanced playwriting intensive from 10 a.m. till 2 p.m. Sunday. Potential participants should call the Key City office for details.

One of the rarer aspects of the Playwrights’ Festival comes in the plays in progress: three stories staged in order to draw audience feedback.
