Now, they’re ready for a long winter’s nap

Standing in for St. Nick Santa’s surrogates say they ‘feel called’ to don the suit BY JOE SMILLIE FOR PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

Filling the most famous pair of black boots in the world could be a weighty occupation, but those who portray Santa Claus on the North Olympic Peninsula agree that it’s one of the easiest jobs they have ever had. “As soon as I walk in and look in the eyes of kids delighted to see me, every other worry I could have is erased,” said Don Talmadge of Kingston, who has 32 years of experience in the red suit — and his own white beard — and who served as Father Christmas at Port Townsend’s Gilded Age Yuletide Salon

last weekend. Larry Klinefelter of Sequim, who has 11 years of experience under the big, black belt, said the Christmas spirit comes to life for him when he experiences the generosity of children. “It’s when a kid looks at you and says, ‘Santa, I don’t want anything, I just want my Grandma to live forever,” Klinefelter said. “That really cuts you to the heart.” Klinefelter and John Hubbard of Port Angeles donned the suit for a visit to Necessities and Temptations gift shop in Port Angeles for a benefit for the Olympic Medical Center Foundation.

Peninsula St. Nicks said even cynics melt at the sight of their white beards. “People who will not open the door to anybody, anywhere, anytime will let Santa in,” said Don McIntyre of Sequim, who has played Kris Kringle for 33 years — wearing his own beard. “Security goes out the window when Santa comes by.”

Naughty or nice? One of Santa’s most laborious chores is his legendary job of tracking the behavior of 7 billion people. They all have systems. “All children are good. That part’s

easy,” said Hubbard, who’s been standing in for Santa in Port Angeles since 1977. Adults, though, are another story. “I learned that you always tell women they’re on the nice list,” said McIntyre, known for cracking candy canes in pieces before handing them to men, while giving whole ones to women. Why? “Most men have been bad.” McIntyre rates 60 percent of the adult population on the nice list, 30 percent on the naughty roster and 10 percent “really, really naughty.” But, said Talmadge, it’s not carved in stone. “As long as you know you’re bad, admit you were bad and try to make up for it, there’s always room to move your name to the nice list.” One way to make the nice list, said McIntyre, is to leave out a plate of oatmeal cookies with raisins, cranberries and ‘lots of nuts” on Christmas Eve.

Mental-health Sequim lawmaker fights court is ready for horse riding at refuge to get started BY PAUL GOTTLIEB



PORT TOWNSEND — A new court program designed to divert the mentally ill from the courts to treatment should be up and running early next year, Jefferson County officials say. County Prosecuting “Someone with mental Attorney Scott illness can’t wait for a Rosekrans said the mental health court will work couple of years.” similar to the county’s SCOTT ROSEKRANS Drug Court, focusing on Jefferson County prosecutor providing treatment to offenders who have mental health issues instead of putting them into prison. “The criminal justice system just isn’t suited to deal with a lot of those issues,” Rosekrans said. “This is kind of keeping them on a tight leash.” Sam Markow, Jefferson’s mental health director, said county officials will meet early next month to discuss when such cases would be heard.

SEQUIM — State Rep. Kevin Van De Wege is taking on the federal Fish and Wildlife Service over its proposed ban on jogging and horseback riding at D u n g e n e s s National Wildlife Van De Wege Refuge, which includes the North Olympic Peninsula’s prized Dungeness Spit.


Would revoke easement

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is seeking to ban jogging and horseback riding at the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge.

If the proposal goes through, the 24th District lawmaker has threatened to look into legislation that would revoke a wildlife-protecting easement the state granted to the federal government for part of the Dungeness Spit, the protected area’s main attraction.

“If Fish and Wildlife moves forward with their proposed limit on recreation, I am interested in seeing if we can revoke the easement so the state can dictate what recreation can be done on that land,” Van De Wege said. The Sequim Democrat and House

Ronnie Wood ties the knot with fiancee TWO BRITISH NEWSPAPERS say Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood has married his fiancee Sally Humphreys at a ceremony at London’s Dorchester Hotel. The Sun and the Daily Mirror carried photographs of the 65-yearold rocker with a pale Wood boutonniere and a dark blue suit, and his 34-year-old bride in a traditional white gown and a clutch of matching Humphreys white flowers.

The Sun quoted Wood as saying, “I’m feeling great,” as he and his bride kissed and posed for pictures outside the exclusive hotel in London’s upscale Mayfair district. The newspapers said the guests included singer Rod Stewart and his wife Penny Lancaster as well as ex-Beatle Paul McCartney and his wife Nancy Shevell. A call and an email to Wood’s U.S.-based agent weren’t returned.

Serpico on Pacino New York City police whistle-blower Frank Serpico said Al Pacino played him better than he did himself. Pacino played the detective who exposed widespread police corruption in the 1973 movie “Serpico.” The Daily News interviewed the real-life Serpico in Ghent, in New York’s Hudson Valley, for a story published Sunday. The 76-year-old retiree

spoke weeks after the death of fellow whistle-blowing ex-detective David Durk. Serpico Serpico smiled as an interviewer noted he is ranked No. 41, just behind Lassie, on Pacino the Amerias Serpico can Film Institute’s list of movie heroes. He said that’s “good company.” The newspaper said Serpico keeps busy trying to finish a book and taking solitary walks. Serpico and Durk’s efforts resulted in frontpage newspaper stories and a city panel that recommended reforms to prevent police corruption.

1937 (75 years ago) It’s a white Christmas across the North Olympic Peninsula. Port Angeles received 4 inches to 8 inches, depending on the elevation. Sequim had about an inch, and Port Townsend had about 2 inches. The snow was heavy west of Port Angeles, with a foot recorded at Joyce and 8 inches in the Dry Creek area. The snow won’t halt Christmas night dances at Clyde’s Hall in Port Angeles, sponsored by the Altruistic Club, and at Dry Creek and Fairview granges.

Ex-convict sets trap for firefighters in N.Y. Suicidal gunman ignites blaze, then kills two first-responders THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WEBSTER, N.Y. — An ex-con set a car and a house ablaze in his neighborhood to lure firefighters, then opened fire on them, killing two, engaging in a shootout with police and committing suicide. The gunman fired on the four firefighters when they arrived shortly after 5:30 a.m. at the blaze in Webster, a Rochester suburb on Lake Ontario, town Police Chief Gerald Pickering said. Police said the gunman lay in wait outside for the firefighters, then shot at them with a rifle from atop an earthen berm. “It does appear it was a trap,” Pickering said. The gunman, William Spengler, had served more than 17 years in prison for beating his 92-year-old grandmother to death with a hammer in 1980 at the house next to where Monday’s attack happened, Pickering said.

Spengler was paroled in 1998 and had led a quiet life since, authorities said. Convicted felons are not allowed to own weapons. Two firefighters, one of whom was also a town police lieutenant, died at the scene. Two others were hospitalized. A fifth man who was passing by also was injured.

Officer ‘saved many lives’ An officer who exchanged gunfire with Spengler “in all likelihood saved many lives,” Pickering said. Seven houses were destroyed, Pickering said, and police have not been able to determine whether there are more victims. Spengler lived in the house with his sister and mother, Arline, who died in October. The sister, 67-year-old Cheryl Spengler, remained unaccounted for. The West Webster Fire District learned of the fire early Monday after a report of a car and house

on fire on Lake Road, on a narrow peninsula, Monroe County Sheriff Patrick O’Flynn said. Two of the firefighters arrived on a fire engine and two in their own vehicles, Pickering said. After Spengler fired, one of the wounded men managed to flee, but the other three couldn’t because of flying gunfire. A police armored vehicle recovered two of the men and eventually evacuated 33 people from nearby homes, the chief said. “These people get up in the middle of the night to go put out fires; they don’t expect to be shot and killed,” Pickering said. The dead men were Police Lt. Michael Chiapperini, 43, the Webster Police Department’s public information officer; and Tomasz Kaczowka, also a 9-1-1 dispatcher, whose age was not released. Pickering described Chiapperini as a “lifetime firefighter” with nearly 20 years with the department, and called Kaczowka a “tremendous young man.” The two wounded firefighters, Joseph Hofsetter and Theodore Scardino, were in guarded condition at Strong Memorial Hospital.

Obama faces long to-do list as he approaches 2nd term THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — It’s hardly a secret that Barack Obama, like every president, muses about his ultimate legacy and spot in the presidential pantheon. He approaches his second term confronting tough challenges that will play big roles in shaping the rest of his presidency and his eventual place in history. Some of the big issues awaiting the president’s decisions are long-simmering problems. They include immigration and the need for a tenable balance between taxes, spending and borrowing. Another issue, gun control, jumped to the national agenda’s top tier this month following the massacre at a Connecticut school. Lawmakers and interest groups are watching for signs of

how hard Obama might push to restrict firearms and expand illegal immigrants’ rights. Obama said last Wednesday that gun control will be a central issue in his second term. “I will use all the powers of this office to help advance efforts aimed at preventing more tragedies like this,” he said of the Sandy Hook Elementary School mass killings.

Immigration reform With Democrats and Republicans increasingly aware of Hispanics’ growing political clout,said Chris Dolan, a political scientist at Lebanon Valley College in Pennsylvania, Obama may be “incredibly ambitious on comprehensive immigration reform.” The effort, Dolan said, could

“build a lasting Democratic support group. You can’t do that with gun control.” The political climate for sweeping immigration changes “is significantly better,” said Doris Meissner, a former commissioner at the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service, “but that does not mean it will happen.” The White House has declined to detail the president’s plans for his second term. Once the deficit-spending problems known as the “fiscal cliff” are addressed, said White House spokeswoman Jamie Smith, “President Obama looks forward to working on a number of issues that are critical to our future, from immigration to energy, to education and national security direction.”

Parents and staff said the novel arrangement involving Ronald and Reginald Richardson has been good for the public school and its 410 students.

A hospital spokesman had said the 88-year-old ex-president would be released in time to spend the holiday at home, but that changed after Bush developed a fever. A spokesman said the cough that initially brought Bush to the hospital on Nov. 23 is now evident only about once a day, and the fever appears to be under control, although doctors are still working to get the right balance in Bush’s medications. No discharge date has been set.

Durham said at least one of the children sprinkled gasoline from a can onto the fire and left the can near the pit. She said fumes from the can ignited. All six children, from age 4 to 11, were near the can when it exploded.

Donations sought for PA holiday lights PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

incandescent lights that had to be changed each year. In 2011, they were replaced with LED lights in a partnership with the city. The LED lights won’t need to be changed for five years and use considerably less electricity. “We got to talking about the time it took and the huge amount of electricity that the lights were drawing, and the idea of replacing them with LEDs made a huge amount of sense in terms of amount of electricity drawn and saving time,� Lumens said.

PORT ANGELES — Jars on downtown counters are available now for collecting donations to the annual holiday light show. Stringing more than 100,000 lights in trees downtown is no easy feat, requiring coordination and funding from the Port Angeles Downtown Association and the strong backs and arms of Olympic Kiwanis club members, according to Barb Frederick, PADA executive director. PADA spends nearly $5,000 on the project each year, with money budgeted for the project and contributions from downtown businesses, Frederick said in a statement.

Conservation money

Pays for lights That money pays for the 12,000 multicolored lights on the city Christmas tree at the Conrad Dyar Memorial Fountain at Front and Laurel streets and for the white street-tree lights installed by the Kiwanis Club members, said Bob Lumens, PADA board member and design committee chair. Kiwanis members spend nearly a month installing the lights, ensuring they are in place by Thanksgiving, Frederick said. They use tools they have made specifically for the job after several years of experience. PADA began the contract with Kiwanis in the early 1990s after a service club found results were spotty after soliciting help from individual businesses.


The downtown Port Angeles Christmas tree stands illuminated at the Conrad Dyar Memorial Fountain at First and Laurel streets. To ensure that all the trees had lights and the club was paid, the partnership began. “We contract with Kiwanis to install the lights in all the trees, and it gives them money for scholarships, so it’s a great deal for

Sullivan said the volunteers at the Humane Society are providing an important service that the county can no longer afford. “We want them to be successful,� he said. “We’ve got a really good Humane Society over here.� People from other counties occasionally come to Jefferson County to adopt a pet because the dogs and cats are treated so well at the shelter, Sullivan said.

Moving the shelter outside of the auspice of government is an idea that has been in the works since 2005.

Deputies also intervene in cases where animals need protection, such as being in a car when the driver has been arrested. The shelter near the county transfer station has space for 10 dogs and 18 cats. The Humane Society of Jefferson County relies on licensing and service fees and donations to stay open.

PORT TOWNSEND — Jefferson County commissioners Monday renewed a license agreement with the Humane Society of Jefferson County to operate the county-owned animal shelter at 112 Critter Lane near Port Townsend. The nonprofit organization ran the shelter under a similar agreement in 2012. Next year, the Humane Society will cover all of its utility costs. Paul Becker, president of the Humane Society of Jefferson County, estimated the annual utility costs to be $10,000 to $12,000. The county footed the electric and water bills this year. Jefferson County stopped running the animal shelter last Jan. 1 as sheriff’s deputies shifted their focus to animal control. In the past, the county paid about $220,000 a year to manage the shelter and provide animal control. “It’s worked fine,� Becker said of the new arrangement. “We were pretty much involved with the shelter beforehand. The Proceeds will be given to Humane Society was paythe Salvation Army and the ing for the clerical help.� Port Angeles Food Bank.

PORT ANGELES — With Medicare paying for 57 percent of Olympic Medical Center’s patients, cuts could “devastate the health care delivery system� of OMC, Chief Executive Officer Eric Lewis told hospital commissioners last week. Congress has until Dec. 31 to avoid deep cuts to Medicare and many other federal programs laid Lewis out in the Budget Control Act of 2011, the deal reached by Republicans and Democrats after last summer’s debt limit debate. If the two sides can’t reach a deal before the end of the year, OMC — which is based in Port Angeles and operates a complex in Sequim — could lose more than $1 million in Medicare payments. Lewis told the commissioners at their board meeting last week that Sequim and Port Angeles have about 16,000 residents who receive Medicare. “The majority of our patients are covered by Medicare,� he said, “so anytime they [government officials] touch it, it has an enormous ripple for us.� The cuts put together as part of last year’s debt limit deal would slice reimburse-

ments from Medicare to physicians by 26.5 percent, Lewis said. Lewis expected that physician payment cuts would be restored by Congress in the new year but worried that cuts in Medicare reimbursements to the hospital would be used to cover the expense. “Do you want your right arm cut off or your left arm?� Lewis asked rhetorically.

Budget built for worst OMC’s board of commissioners built its $139 million 2013 budget with the expectation that the automatic 2 percent cut to Medicare payments would take place Jan. 1. Lewis said the cut is expected to cost OMC $100,000 every month, or $1.2 million for the year. If the funding is restored next year, the hospital likely will use it to plug programs it cut to balance the 2013 spending plan, Lewis said. An additional $200,000 to $400,000 in annual funding could go away with the elimination of “hold harmless� payments that fill gaps in funding the hospital receives from Medicare for outpatient services, he added. To counter, Lewis said, the hospital is lobbying the state’s two U.S. senators, Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell, both Democrats. “They’ve received literally hundreds of letters from us,� he told commissioners. Lewis said the hospital


Olympic Medical Center — its hospital and facilities — could lose $1 million. also is lobbying state legislators to protect the funding it receives from Olympia. Most of the hospital’s state funding comes from Medicaid, which is funded 50-50 by the state and federal governments. With the state’s budget still tight, funding for sole community hospitals, a classification of which OMC is one of just four in the state, may be on the table, Lewis said. Sole community hospitals are those that serve a population that does not have another hospital within at least 35 miles that offers similar services. A contingent of OMC officials met with 24th District state Reps. Kevin Van De Wege and Steve Tharinger,

Clallam County

both D-Sequim, to ask them to stress the importance of state funding to the hospital when the Legislature convenes Jan. 10.

Watching the situation “I don’t foresee them having a problem with the funding they receive. Funding for these sole hospitals is not usually a target,� Van De Wege said Thursday. “But it’s something we are going to keep our eyes on to make sure it doesn’t become one.� Tharinger, a member of the stateHouse’s Health Care and Wellness Committee, said OMC’s classification as a sole community hospital puts it in a tricky funding spot — too big to receive

urban hospital funding and too small to get rural funding help. “My view is we’re underfunding these sole community hospitals. We’ve got to find a way to make the pie bigger,� Tharinger said. “There may be something we can do to improve the hospital’s reimbursement rates because of the importance of OMC to the health care system of the North Olympic Peninsula.� Lewis said he plans to meet with state Sen. Jim Hargrove, D-Hoquiam — also of the local 24th District — before the Legislature convenes Jan. 10. The 24th District covers Clallam and Jefferson counties and part of Grays Harbor County.

As it prepares to implement the $7.6 million Epic computerized records system, OMC is upgrading other equipment to match the system. Epic was purchased earlier this year to give the hospital a system to maintain health records electronically. It is scheduled to go into action May 4. Also last week, commissioners unanimously gave Chief Nursing Officer Lorraine Wall the authority to finalize the purchase of a new program and equipment that will track how pharmaceuticals are dispensed to patients. Wall said the Pyxis equipment will provide a muchneeded upgrade to the hospital’s pharmacy records and will have a digital “interface� with the Epic system. The cost of the purchase was $667,940, with a monthly maintenance fee of $2,768. Wall said the hospital budgeted $819,875 for the purchase. The hospital in September purchased $1.5 million worth of hardware to accommodate the system. In other action, commissioners also approved a salary increase for gastroenterologist Frank Jahns. Rebecca Corley, the hospital’s chief physician officer, said raising Jahn’s salary to $375,000 would bring his pay into the 25th percentile of gastroenterologists with his level of experience.

Larry Klinefelter of Sequim waits for children to relay the Christmas wishes as he sits in as Santa at Necessities & Temptations in downtown Port Angeles.

Santa: Merry disposition needed CONTINUED FROM A1 Another job requirement: Santa needs to be merry and laugh with that patented bowl-full-of-jelly belly. “It’s scary enough for the kid, just looking at some big dude with a big beard,� said Hubbard, who admits that even Father Christmas has some bad days. “You get the kid that walks up with a 3-inch diameter sucker, and he pulls away, and the sucker’s stuck in your beard. “But you just get up, go to the bathroom and slowly pull it out, hair by hair.� And then there are coworkers. Elves are no sweat, said Talmadge, who studied this year at the St. Nicholas Institute, a training school for would-be Santas in Livonia, Mich. Guest stars are another story: “Clowns and Santa Claus don’t mix,� McIntyre said. “I was Santa once at this party where there was this obnoxious clown. Every time I opened my mouth to talk to the kid, the clown would honk his stupid horn.�

‘You put that suit on . . .’ And Santas can’t get creative with their dress. The costume is always red and white and fur-trimmed — from head to black boots. “Santa Claus isn’t something we put on. It’s a bit like being a minister or a nun,� Talmadge said. “We feel called to do it. “But when you put that suit on, something does kind of sweep over you.� John Hubbard inherited most of his suit in 1977, when his father, Dick, handed over his Port Angeles Kringle duties. In 1952, the elder Hubbard ordered a Santa suit, complete with a yak-hair beard from New York for $350. Eventually, after years of kneeling to hear the whispered wishes of young fans, John Hubbard wore out the knees. He has a new suit now — sewn by his wife, Judy — but the rest of the items are the same ones his father ordered in 1952. The father of five daughters, Hubbard, 76, is groom-

ing one of his sons-in-law and a Kringle-framed grandson to take the suit from him. The old yak-hair beard has served him well, save the one year he sent it out for a cleaning. “It’s supposed to have a little yellow tint, but when I got it back, it was bright white,� he recalled of the blond beard. “We had to take in a picture of me wearing it so she could get it died back to the right color.� Now, it’s kept clean at home, with Judy giving the mustache and ends a curling iron touch-up before Santa calls.

Pipe bequeathed Along with the jinglebell wristband and the red bag of toys, McIntyre also sports a Dickensian pipe. “A lot of people speak out and have problems with me carrying around the pipe,� he admitted. “But, I tell you what, when I walk into a retirement home with this thing, those old ladies — they just light up.� McIntyre recalled being summoned to a lawyer’s office in the Seafirst Building in Seattle one day.

Cat watches out for students at middle school’s crosswalk BY MICHELLE DUPLER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

RICHLAND — Twice a day, every weekday, a large black cat named Sable trots from the garage where he lives to a nearby street corner in West Richland. He plops down in a patch of grass and watches as children cross the street to and from Enterprise Middle School, earning him the nickname “the crossing guard cat.” Sable’s daily habit also has earned the domestic shorthair a bit of Internet fame. In the past several days, his story has appeared on Yahoo, Huffington Post, ABC’s news blogs and in the New York Daily News. “It has been amusing how it’s just taken off,” said Lance Morrison, patriarch of Sable’s adopted human family.

Showed up Sable has lived with the family for several years — they couldn’t quite remember how many — ever since leaping over the 6-foot-high fence at their former west Pasco home into their back yard. They gave him some food, and he never left. The family moved to a house on Eagle Street in West Richland about a year ago, and that’s when Sable took over crossing-guard duties, she said. Their house is right across the street from Enterprise, and something

Sable the safety cat sits near a bus as children are let out of school at Enterprise Middle School in West Richland. about the throngs of children passing by each day caught Sable’s attention. Tamara Morrison told the Herald that the family has lived near a school in the past and had a school bus stop right in front of their former home, but Sable never paid much attention to the children’s comings and goings. “He never went out to greet kids,” she said. But Sable has found his calling at that particular crosswalk since moving to West Richland. Each morning and after-

noon — in rain, snow or sunshine — the 15-year-old cat goes out to watch the school’s students wearing a neon orange safety vest Tamara bought for him at a pet store, she said.

Waits for children Sable typically arrives at the corner about five minutes before the children — and he stays in on the weekend when children won’t be in school. “The cat’s got this builtin clock. He just knows,” said Monti Franckowiak,

BELLEVUE — A 30-year-old Seattle man was killed and another man wounded in a shooting at a crowded suburban bar early Monday, police said. The shooting broke out just after 1 a.m. at Munchbar at Bellevue Square, an upscale shopping center about 10 miles east of Seattle, said Carla Iafrate, a spokeswoman for the Bellevue Police Department. Police officers were outside the bar when gunfire erupted because a large

crowd had gathered there, she said. More than 600 people were inside the venue at the time of the shooting. “It was a very complicated scene,” Iafrate said.

Condition unknown The wounded man was taken to Overlake Medical Center in Bellevue. Iafrate did not immediately know his age, hometown or condition. The shooting appears to be an isolated incident. “There was some type of

altercation,” before the shooting happened, she said. No one has been arrested, and investigators were trying to put together a description of the shooter, she said. No officers were involved in the shooting. Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said several players were at Munchbar following the team’s Sunday night victory over the San Francisco 49ers, but none were injured. “From what we know, our guys were in a separate

Chaotic scene Witnesses described a chaotic scene, telling local media they dove for cover or hit the floor when they heard gunshots. The shopping center opened Monday morning as normal, Iafrate said, adding that the shooting had minimal impact on overall operations.

Instead of the old federal guidelines requiring schools to offer a serving of fruits and vegetables in each meal, the new rules require those fruits and vegetables to be served to each student, whether they want them or not. The middle and high school students are more resistant to the changes because their dietary habits are already set, she said. “The elementary kids are more accepting,” she said. Not only are the caloric limits more restrictive, but the act’s sodium limits, which were halved in 2011, will be halved again by 2020. Hulett said that although natural salt content of foods is taken into consideration, meeting the future sodium limit will be challenging. Some of the new rules can be baffling, Hulett said, like the requirement for schools to offer two flavors of milk at breakfast — such as plain and chocolate. “It’s the government,” he said, shrugging his shoulders.

A similar omelet breakfast bar will be introduced, which is expected to be as popular as the stir fry, she added. In Sequim, lunch is provided for $2.10 for an elementary school student, $2.25 at the middle school, $2.30 at the high school or $3.50 for a teacher or other adults.

Smaller districts manage their own food programs but are held to the same, increasingly challenging standards. Some of the solutions that have been introduced in Sequim schools — such as “Stir-Fry Friday,” during which students select their preferred vegetables and meat from a bar, and each student’s selection is cooked individually to preference — have become a favorite among students and teachers alike. The fresh stir-fry meal is so popular that students will wait in line for 20 minutes, she said. Some time leniency is allowed for students to finish their meals before returning to class, Campen said.

1 killed, 1 injured in bar shooting near Seattle THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SEQUIM — School lunches, long the butt of jokes for sitcoms and standup comedians, don’t look much like many parents remember from their own school days. And now, new rules for student meals are creating a new challenge for school cafeterias. The legendary “mystery meat” entree or macaroni and cheese slopped on a plastic tray are gone, replaced with fresh stir-fry to order, taco bars, chicken and cheese quesadillas, sandwich bars and fresh, locally grown vegetables on an all-you-can-eat salad bar. North Olympic Peninsula school districts, like other public schools in the U.S., have been making major changes to student meals after the passage of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The act is a federal attempt to improve nutrition and decrease childhood obesity by requiring more fruits, vegetables and whole grains in school meals. School meal programs must meet federal guidelines to receive funding for student meals. On Dec. 3, Sequim Sodexo food services supervisor Laurie Campen gave the Sequim School District Board of Directors an overview of what the changes look like on the plate, and to the district and student pocketbook. Sodexo Inc., a food service corporation, holds the contract to manage the food programs for Sequim and Port Angeles schools, Clallam County’s two largest school districts.

included caloric minimums, requiring at least 633 to 825 calories, depending on grade level. The new guidelines include caloric limits, which range from 650 calories to 850 calories. Some of the strict guidelines are making it a challenge for cafeteria staff to plan meals, keep kids full and keep the cost within the budgets of students and the school district. “The food cost is raised significantly, adding 10 to 15 cents per meal. Vendors are charging more for their products,” said George Hulett, Sodexo district manager. By 2014, all grains served to students must be whole grains, according to the act. Whole grain breads add an additional 5 cents to the cost of meals, Hulett said. The guidelines set a low limit on the servings of grains that students can be served as part of the meal, which are often an affordable stomach-filler for hungry children. For example, the food service cannot offer rice on a burrito or bread sticks with spaghetti because both count toward the federal limit on grains in a lunch, Campen said. However, she added, students can purchase for 25 cents an a la carte item, such as rice or breadsticks, in addition to their carefully planned and measured school lunch. High school athletes and fast-growing teenage boys who have higher caloric needs can purchase individual items a la carte — or buy a second meal, she said. Students on free or reduced lunch meals cannot get the a la carte items or an additional lunch for free, but they do have options to fill their appetites. “There is no limit to fruits and vegetables,” she said.

Our family Christmas, rescinded BY HEATHER HAVRILESKY SEVERAL YEARS AGO, my mother announced that she was spending Christmas in Egypt with friends. I flew home anyway, alone, and spent two days making homemade pierogies and sauerkraut and bread for the traditional CarpathoHavrilesky Rusyn meal we always have on Christmas Eve. At 10 p.m., my sister had an hour off from her rounds at the hospital. She came home, and we ate. Then she left, and I did the dishes. You might say I have a strong sense of tradition, if you didn’t recognize the heavy press of bereavement on these proceedings, the fear that the past is lost forever. “The possible ranks higher than the actual,” Martin Heidegger wrote.

I can’t handle the chaos and the noise anymore.” She offered to pay for me and my family to stay in a hotel instead. “It’s your house,” I said finally of the place I (myopically) consider mine more than any other. I imagined myself under a starched white sheet, listening to strangers come and go in a hotel hallway on Christmas Eve. “You should do whatever you want,” I said. Then I put down the phone and cried.

As a parent, I’m expected to smile serenely as I pour the wine and rush the baked rolls to the table, as I sign “Santa” on every package, then join my children in marveling at his generosity. I’d rather be one of the kids, tearing into presents, then gloating over my loot like a drunken pirate. Perhaps nostalgia is a natural result of being abruptly ushered from the realm of gleeful greed to the less-thrilling arena of sweating the small stuff, then receding into the background until it’s time to crawl across the floor retrieving stray scraps of wrapping paper.

Peninsula Voices Semiautomatic When I turned 12 in rural New Hampshire, I thought I wanted to hunt. I had been given a .22-caliber single-shot, boltaction rifle. My favorite uncle had lever-action and pumpaction rifles in his kitchen. I read that no real hunter needs a semiautomatic. As West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” [Dec. 17]: “I’ve never had more than three shells in a clip. “Sometimes you don’t

get more than one shot anyway at a deer. You know, it’s common sense.” Lunatic gun nuts think they need semiautomatic rifles to fight their government. But when a squad of six infantry goes after Joe Tuffguy in house, they can set up two machine guns to cover all ways to exit, then use a mortar to destroy Joe’s house and anyone it. His semiautomatic rifles and pistols will have been worthless. When U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was so terribly wounded, I asked two local gun shops what the largest

aybe my mother’s growing acceptance of her mortality has emancipated her from old obligations. Or maybe she’s just eager to shock us out of our childish selfishness. Either way, it worked. We can see now that without her, we are greedy babies surrounded by other greedy babies, waiting expectantly for the dinner bell to ring. We want to deny that there’s an end to this story, so we remain trapped. My mother, though, is free to forge a new path, unburdened by the decay of history. But we’ll all come together again on Christmas Eve, the trapped and the free, to endure the noise and the chaos. The possible ranks higher than the actual. I’m really looking forward to it.

“I WAS AFRAID he’d get eaten by a coyote or the highway,” my friend, Edna, explained over her cellphone. “A little, lost puppy in the middle of the road. No collar, scared, starved.” “Did you look for the owner?” I asked. “For two Luckett hours,” she said, “then, I took him to a vet in Chimacum. “The poor thing has flaky skin, tapeworm and an ear infection. I got these treated plus his puppy shots. Now, I’m heading for the Duckabush Valley and your place.”














so annoying that Mim’s tough topdog superiority cracked. Games of rough and tumble ensued. I found it effortless to avoid attachment to the mutt, content to merely take care of his feeding and cleaning, while counting the hours until my two days in puppy purgatory were over. Edna called. “I’m tied up in Forks another week. If Milo is too much trouble, take him to the Center Valley Animal Rescue.” Aha! A great solution. I retrieved Mim’s dog crate from my Vanagon, then went to get Milo. He and Mim slept on the sofa — matronly Mim’s head draped over bad-boy Milo’s neck, instinctively sheltering him from a cruel world: i.e., me. Mim’s white fur glistened these past few madcap days, and she’d lost 2 pounds of

excess weight. Perhaps the puppy could stay another day or two. Edna finally returned and Mim — and Milo — ran to greet her. We never mentioned taking the pup to animal rescue again. Milo was home. That night I lifted him into bed with Mim. She showed him how to nose under the covers. I now have two lumps of comfort — one big, one small — to cozy up to this winter. Mim and me and Milo makes three.

Sherman hopeful about appeal BY TIM BOOTH THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SEATTLE — Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman said Sunday night there was a “chain of custody� mistake that led to his positive test for performance enhancing substances, and was the basis of his appeal to the NFL. “It should go well,� Sherman said after the Seahawks’ 42-13 win over the San Francisco 49ers. “There was a chain of custody mistake. There were mistakes made by the tester. “The league’s argument was they’re allowed to make mistakes, and they’re allowed to break the rules and they can get away with it. “It’s up to them. The appeal officer is paid by the league, so if he goes their way, that’s what it is. “It’s not an even playing field in that appeal room.� TURN

New bully on block Hawks menace Niners on offense and defense BY JOHN MCGRATH MCCLATCHY NEWS SERVICE

SEATTLE — Seattle’s most anticipated regular-season home game in years found the Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers bringing different attitudes into CenturyLink Field on Sunday night. The Seahawks took the field with a purpose. Their disposition was edgy, aggressive and menacing. Some of this had to do with achieving revenge on a national TV stage, against a division archrival that beat them on an another national TV stage in October. Some of this had to do with clinching a playoff berth. Although the Seahawks


were virtually assured an NFC wild-card spot, hey, you never know. Besides, it’s much more fun barging into the playoffs SWATteam style: kicking down the front door, than backing in on the basis of a tiebreaker formula. But most of all, the Seahawks’ 42-13 ambushing of San Francisco was the consequence of a mind-set.

No backing down Pete Carroll’s team has come to revel in Seattle’s identity as the NFL’s newest bullies on the block. With a confidence that’s grown into a conviction, the Seahawks appraised the visitors

and seemed to say: We’re gonna be your worst nightmare. Wanna make somethin’ out of it? The 49ers’ response to that challenge was to retreat a few steps and look away. A home game against Arizona awaits them next week in San Francisco. If the 49ers win — and they will win — they’ll advance to the playoffs as NFC West champions. It wouldn’t be accurate to say Sunday night meant nothing to the Niners. It just would be more accurate to say Sunday night meant everything to the Seahawks. Seattle took a 7-0 lead two snaps into its first possession, when Marshawn Lynch ran a sweep to the left that had San Francisco’s vaunted defense looking like a collection of tackling dummies. The Seahawks took a 14-0 lead seven snaps into their second possession, when quarterback Russell Wilson noticed

there wasn’t a defender within a 10-minute cab ride of Lynch. Wilson’s touchdown pass to Lynch was pivotal, because on the previous snap, the 49ers managed to hold the running back for no gain — the first time, in 10 attempts, Seattle’s offense ran a play that didn’t advance the ball. No problem, no sweat. Moments after Lynch was swarmed at the line of scrimmage, he was alone in the end zone. The Seahawks took a 21-0 lead while the offense was on the sideline, watching San Francisco’s David Akers attempt a 21-yard field goal. Akers’ kick got off the ground, but not beyond the reach of 6-foot-4 defensive end Red Bryant. The blocked ball was scooped up in stride by cornerback Richard Sherman, who raced 90 yards toward the end zone. TURN TO HAWKS/B3


Pagano back to coach Colts THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Historic season In his absence, all the Colts did was win nine of 12 games, make a historic turnaround and clinch a playoff spot all before Sunday’s regular-season finale against Houston, which they pegged as the day they hoped to have Pagano back. If all goes well at practice this week, Pagano will be on the sideline for the first time since a Week 3 loss to Jacksonville. Pagano endured three rounds of chemotherapy to put his cancer in remission. That Pagano’s return came less than 24 hours after Indy (10-5) locked up the No. 5 seed in the AFC and the day before Christmas seemed fitting, too. “I know Chuck is ready for this challenge,� owner Jim Irsay said.

This is the time of year to reect and thank the people who make a difference in our lives. We would like to express our sincere appreciation to our valued clients for your continued trust and loyalty. Wishing you a new year of promise, opportunities and joy! Casi J.

INDIANAPOLIS — Chuck Pagano stepped to the podium Monday, hugged his team owner, thanked his family for its support and wiped a tear from his eye. He might, finally, turn out the lights in his office, too. Nearly three months to the day after being diagnosed with leukemia, the Colts’ first-year coach returned to a team eager to reunite with a boss healthy enough to go back to work. (See photo on Page B2). “I told you my best day of my life was July 1, 1989,� Pagano said, referring to his wedding date. “Today was No. 2. Getting to pull up, drive in, get out of my car, the key fob still worked. “I was beginning to question whether it would or not. When I asked for Bruce to take over, I asked for him to kick some you-knowwhat and to do great. “Damn Bruce, you had to go and win nine games? Tough act to follow. Tough act to follow. “Best in the history of the NFL. That’s what I have to come back to.�

The comment turned tears into the laughter everyone expected on such a festive occasion. For Pagano and the Colts, Monday morning was as precious as anyone could have imagined when Pagano took an indefinite leave to face the biggest opponent of his life: blood cancer.

Baldwin saves big night for old coach On second-and-goal from the 6, Wilson zipped a pass past San Francisco’s Chris Colliver and Baldwin was able to fight off contact and reach out and grab the laser beam on his fingertips for another touchdown. “The guy played a different technique that we hadn’t seen,” Baldwin said. “Somehow, some way I was able get inside of him and make the play.”


SEATTLE — In the din of laughter, yelling and music permeating the Seattle Seahawks’ locker room, Doug Baldwin seemed pretty subdued. It seemed odd in light of his performance in the Seahawks’ 42-13 whipping of the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night. Baldwin caught a teamhigh four passes for 53 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Three of those catches were as good as any made at CenturyLink Field this season. And he did with his former college coach at Stanford, Jim Harbaugh, on the opposing sideline. Did it make it any sweeter having perhaps his best game of the season against Harbaugh, who was celebrating his 49th birthday? “I’d be lying to you if I said it didn’t,” Baldwin said, his face breaking into a wide grin. Baldwin’s big night started on the Seahawks’ second possession. On second-and-3 from their own 21, Russell Wilson faked a handoff to Marshawn Lynch and fired a deep pass to Baldwin streaking down the middle of the field with only one defender – Carlos Rogers – on him. “We knew if we got a particular look, Russell was going to throw it up to me,” Baldwin said. “The safety slid down to

The ball actually went through Baldwin’s hands as he leaped and bounced off his chest. But he was able to corral the ball as he fell to the turf. “I was a little worried,” he said of the bobble “But after you hit the ground, and you know that you

Wilson’s pass was just ball,” Baldwin said.

out of the reach of Rogers’ outstretched hands and Baldwin made a leaping catch while getting his left foot firmly in bounds and tapping the toe of his right foot in the end zone before falling out of bounds. “The ball was thrown in a perfect spot,” Baldwin said. “Russell couldn’t have thrown it any better. I just made a play on it.” Baldwin’s final catch of the night was far from easy.

Said coach Pete Carroll: “His two touchdowns were beautiful plays.” Baldwin was targeted by Wilson on six pass attempts, the most this season. After catching a teamhigh 51 passes last season, a number of factors cut into Baldwin’s numbers: early injuries; Sidney Rice’s return to health; Golden Tate’s improved play; and the re-emergence of the team’s tight ends. “It was frustrating at the beginning of the season because you have high expectations for yourself,” he said. “But you just have to focus on the things you can control. I was able to stay focused.” Baldwin also knows that having diversity among the receivers makes the offense that much more dangerous. “That’s the way our offense is built,” Baldwin said. “We keep the defense off balance. They never know who’s going to get the ball, who’s going to go off.”

Colts, Bengals make NFL playoffs with victories THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

One year after putting together the NFL’s worst record, the Indianapolis Colts are headed to the playoffs. Joining them on Sunday were the Cincinnati Bengals, finishing out the field in the AFC.

The Colts (10-5) equaled the 2008 Miami Dolphins as the only teams to win at least 10 games after losing 14 or more the previous season. Top overall draft pick Andrew Luck completed a 7-yard touchdown pass to Reggie Wayne late in the fourth quarter for a 20-13

victory at Kansas City. Cincinnati qualified for a second straight postseason berth for only the second time in franchise history, edging archrival Pittsburgh 13-10. The Bengals have never gone to the playoffs in successive years that did not involve a strike-shortened

season. Luck finished with 205 yards passing to break Cam Newton’s year-old rookie record of 4,051 yards in a season. He also extended his rookie record for fourthquarter comebacks to seven by leading his team downfield in the closing minutes.

“Mission accomplished. That’s all I can say,” Colts interim coach Bruce Arians said. For the Bengals (9-6), Andy Dalton hit A.J. Green with a 21-yard pass in the final moments, setting up Josh Brown’s 43-yard field goal with 4 seconds remaining.

The loss eliminated the Steelers from contention. “A lot of people talked about we hadn’t been in in back-to-back seasons in 30 years,” Green said. “I don’t worry about that stuff. I’ve been here two years and we made the playoffs all two years. That’s all we can control.”

Hawks: The new bullies on the block CONTINUED FROM B1 the Seahawks had invested too much energy toward “The play of the game, Sunday night to go through for me, was Red’s block,” the motions for three quarters. Carroll said afterward. And so the beating went “The bell rang right on. there. You think you have a The Seattle defense chance to beat these guys revealed 49ers quarterback — you can feel it from the Colin Kaepernick as the start — but that really sent inexperienced second-year the message.” player he didn’t resemble in Sherman scored with five previous starts. 14:05 remaining in the secIt held the great Frank ond quarter.

Which poses a question: How does a defense reduce a potential Hall-of-Fame running back into a nonfactor? The defense makes him a non-factor because its teammates on offense are scoring three touchdowns en route to a 28-6 halftime lead. San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh might be a disciple of the ground control principles once espoused by Bo Schembechler (his college coach at Michigan) and Mike Ditka (his first NFL

coach), but even Harbaugh realized his team’s only chance at a comeback was to throw and throw some more. Kaepernick ended up attempting 36 passes, 15 more than Wilson. But Wilson’s efficiency, once again, was off the charts: four touchdowns out of 15 completions. Between Wilson’s knack for extending plays on the run with his dart-frog reflexes, and Lynch’s typical impersonation of a battering ram, the Seahawks con-

know if I can pursue it further.” News of Sherman’s suspension and that of fellow cornerback Brandon Browner broke after the Seahawks’ loss at Miami on Nov. 28. Browner dropped his appeal on Dec. 5 and was suspended for the final four games of the regular season.

Browner will return and be eligible to play for the Seahawks in the playoffs. If Sherman’s suspension is upheld, he would miss the playoffs. He said the process hasn’t been a distraction. “Not at all,” he said. “I’ve faced worse than that throughout my whole life. Nothing little like that can hold you back.”

concluded Harbaugh, who added: “We will wake up [Monday] with a half-game lead on the division.” As for the Seahawks? They woke up Monday a half-game down in the division, but believing they can win a playoff game or three anywhere, against anybody. They’ve got the whole world, in their hands.

B4 Last-minute gift shoppers are rewarded THE ASSOCIATED PRESS



Swain’s General Store recently raised $238 for the Port Angeles Food Bank. Employees’ pledges ensured that store manager Don Droz would have to wear a special hat. In front row are, from left, Pam Aunspach, Bob Aunspach, Rick Umbarger, Droz and Glen Stovall. In back row are Kathy Stilts, Kim Wahto and Toni Harvey.

NEW YORK — Shoppers who waited until the final days before Christmas were rewarded with big bargains and thinner crowds. Analysts expect growth from last year to be relatively modest. Several factors have dampened shoppers’ spirits, including fears that the economy could fall off the “fiscal cliff,� triggering tax increases and spending cuts early next year. On Christmas Eve, Taubman Centers, which operates 28 malls across the country, reported a “very strong weekend,� with shoppers taking advantage of all the sales. But many last-minute shoppers across the nation in cities such as New York, Atlanta and Indianapolis said they were spending less than they did last year and taking advantage of big discounts ranging from 30 percent to 70 percent off.

Scott Thomas of The Business Journals, a group of weekly business newspapers, has ranked Port Angeles as No. 3 among areas in Western states and No. 13 out of 604 markets in the country as being attractive to seniors. Thomas used Census Bureau data to rank metropolitan areas in terms of median age, seniors as share of total population, seniors born out of state and the percentage of seniors who moved to their current county from another county. Though Port Angeles wass named in his survey, Thomas said he used numbers from all of Clallam County. No. 1 in the survey was Sebring, Fla. The top two cities in the West were Prescott, Ariz., and Lake Havasu City-Kingman, Ariz.

Ambassadors busy PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles Ambassadors attended 36 ribbon-cuttings for businesses’ grand openings, ground-breaking ceremonies and other business milestones in 2012, and 12 of these events were held in downtown. A committee of the Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce, also known as the “Red Coats� because of their red sports coats, the Ambassadors were busiest in April, May and September, with five ribboncuttings each month. Eight new Ambassadors joined the volunteer group in 2012. For more information, visit PortAngelesAmbassadors.

Fun ’n’ Advice





DEAR ABBY: May I comment on the letter from “Itching to Get Even in Cincinnati,” the woman who was upset that the handmade wreaths she had placed on her family graves had been stolen? I volunteer at a historical cemetery. Many cemeteries have rules about the type and size of grave decorations that are allowed on the grounds, which is sometimes none at all. In fact, if decorations are allowed, unless they can be firmly attached to the ground, real flowers are usually preferred because they biodegrade and do not create a nightmare for grounds keepers when the plastic eventually weakens. While it’s touching that “Itching” and her sister continue to make thoughtful and beautiful arrangements for their deceased loved ones, they should consider speaking with the cemetery office or grounds keeper about any regulations they might have in order to avoid this kind of upset again.

DEAR ABBY Abigail Van Buren

Dear Abby: Years ago, the flags my mother and I had placed on Memorial Day were stolen. After that we would write, “Stolen from the grave of . . .” on the sticks of the flags we left for my father’s and stepfather’s graves. It worked! Dot in New Jersey Dear Abby: My sister made a Christmas tree for our mother’s grave and decorated it with functional lights. When I asked her why she went to the extra expense, she replied that she knew it would likely be stolen. She said she wanted the thief to have a tree with working lights, so the person would have a brighter Christmas. Gerry in Hunstville, Texas

Dear Maureen: For the most part, readers agree that the policies of a cemetery should be checked out before placing wreaths or flowers on graves. However, other readers offered some interesting solutions to the problem:

by Bob and Tom Thaves

Dear Abby: When Dad died, my mom and I returned to his grave the next day. All the flowers were missing, but the plastic they were attached to was still there. When we inquired about, it we were told that deer come down at night and eat the flowers. My dad, a nature lover, would have been pleased that they provided a meal for the deer. Still Missing Him

by Jim Davis

When I told my husband, he told me, “Honey, your mother was an angel. She didn’t need one. Someone else must have needed one.” After he said that, it put the incident into a different perspective. Angel’s Daughter in Missouri

Dear Abby: I had the same problem until I started attaching small signs to my floral wreaths that read, “Thou Shalt Not Steal.” I make the signs business cardsized, cover them with clear tape, attach them to a beverage straw and insert them in the flowers or attach them to the wreaths. So far it has worked. And if it doesn’t, at least it may make the thief think twice. Marie in Pennsylvania
