High court hears Indian Island case
Troopers Allen Nelson and Eric Tilton heard the dispatcher’s report of a chain saw accident while they were patrolling U.S. Highway 101 and rushed to Larson’s aid. “If it hadn’t missed his artery and they hadn’t been there, he probably wouldn’t have made it,” Bartolac said. The original report was that the chain saw had injured a man’s leg. “While en route to the scene,
they heard that he had a very serious injury to his neck,” Bartolac said. The troopers immediately began planning for the scene they would find — pulling out plastic gloves, a first aid kit and, just in case, an automated external defibrillator, Bartolac said. “They were directed into the woods where the man was with his wife,” said Bartolac, who did not know the wife’s name. “The man was still awake
and conscious, and there was a very serious cut to his neck,” with massive bleeding, Bartolac said. Nelson and Tilton performed first aid, controlling the bleeding as well as trying to keep Larson and his wife calm. As they worked to save Larson’s life, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Deputy Brian Peterson arrived with a trauma kit. Turn

Information freedom ruling due next year By Mark Sherman
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday questioned the government’s broad use of an exemption in the federal Freedom of Information Act after a Seattle man was denied maps outlining the extent of damage expected in the event of a Naval Magazine Indian Island explosion. The justices heard argument in an appeal from Glen Milner, a Seattle man who is a member of the Poulsbo-based Ground Zero Center for Nonviolent Action. He sued under the Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA, for maps showing the extent of damage expected from an explosion at the Navy’s Pacific Fleet’s West Coast ammunition depot two miles from downtown Port Townsend. A decision in the case, Milner v. Department of the Navy, is expected before summer. The Obama administration is defending the decision to deny Milner the maps under a provision of FOIA that exempts from disclosure documents “related solely to the internal personnel rules and practices of an agency.” Chief Justice John Roberts said the administration was asking the court “to torture the language in FOIA” to keep the docu-

ments from being made public. Roberts also noted the public’s frustration with FOIA, even when the government is willing to turn over material. “It takes forever to get the documents,” he said.
Interpretation too broad Several other justices indicated that they also thought the government and several appeals courts that have dealt with FOIA lawsuits have interpreted the exception too broadly. “If the agency has a rule that says put explosive A in building 1 and put explosive B in building 2, that’s hard for me to explain that it’s just a personnel rule, other than, as Justice Scalia says, everything, all functions have to be undertaken by humans,” Justice Anthony Kennedy said.

Fixing marina storm damage will improve it That’s the vow of property manager for company planning to sell facility By Charlie Bermant Peninsula Daily News
PORT HADLOCK — The owner of the damaged Port Hadlock Marina met with prospective buyers of the marina and those who will conduct repairs and concluded that the marina will soon be in better condition than it was before a Nov. 22 storm.
During the storm, five boats that were tied to buoys outside of the marina were destroyed or severely damaged, and debris is still visible. The breakwater was damaged. One section washed away. Parts of the dock were broken. None of the boats within the marina sustained any damage. “The breakwater held up well
and did what it was supposed to do,” said Craig Anderson, who manages the property for the owner, RealVest of Vancouver, Wash. “One panel gave way, but after an inspection, the damage wasn’t as severe as we thought.” No damage estimate was available, but Anderson said when the repairs are completed, “it will be better than it was before.” In addition to Anderson and a representative of the prospective buyer — which Anderson would not name — a diver and an engi-

Snipes sent to prison for tax evasion ACTOR WESLEY SNIPES was ordered Wednesday to voluntarily surrender at a federal prison in Pennsylvania next week to begin his three-year sentence for failing to pay taxes. The U.S. Marshal’s Office ordered Snipes to report by noon Dec. 9 to the Federal Correc- Snipes tional Institution McKean in Lewis Run, Pa. Snipes had tried unsuccessfully to remain free on bail while appealing his conviction to the U.S. Supreme Court. The 48-year-old star of the
“Blade” trilogy was convicted in 2008 on three misdemeanor counts of willful failure to file income tax returns in 1999, 2000 and 2001. He was acquitted of five other charges, including felony tax fraud and conspiracy. His attorney, Daniel Meachum, didn’t immediately respond to an e-mail seeking comment. The prison is a mediumsecurity facility with an adjacent satellite prison camp for minimum-security offenders. Bureau of Prisons spokesman Ed Ross said agency policy prohibited him from saying which unit would house Snipes.

GIL MCDOUGALD, 82, an All-Star infielder who helped the New York Yankees win five World Series championships during the 1950s, has died. Mr. McDougald died Sunday of prostate cancer at his home in Wall Township, N.J. Mr. Mr. McDougald McDougald in 1954 spent his entire 10-year major league career with the Yankees and played a key role on one of baseball’s greatest dynasties. He was the AL Rookie of the Year in 1951 and teamed with Hall of Famers such as Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford and manager Casey Stengel to lead New York to eight American League pennants from 1951-60. Mr. McDougald also was involved in a famous play that led to a tragic injury. In 1957, his line drive hit
hard-throwing Cleveland pitcher Herb Score in the right eye, breaking bones in Score’s face and damaging his eye. A versatile infielder who played second base, third base and shortstop, Mr. McDougald batted .276 with 112 home runs and 576 RBIs during his career. He eclipsed .300 twice, in 1951 and ‘56, and had a career-high 83 RBIs in 1953, when the Yankees won the last of five consecutive World Series titles. Three times, Mr. McDougald finished in the top 10 in AL MVP voting (1951, 1956, 1957). He was selected to six All-Star games, including both contests in 1959. He singled home the decisive run for the American League in the sixth inning of the 1958 game at Baltimore’s Memorial Stadium. Born in San Francisco, Mr. McDougald is survived by his wife, Lucille, their seven children, 14 grandchildren and seven greatgrandchildren. Private funeral services will be
held Friday in New Jersey, the Yankees said.

In a separate statement, actress and longtime friend Carol Burnett said she was very sorry to hear of Mr. Masini’s death. She called him a “talented producer and a fine man.”

Briefly: Nation Rangel urges donors to call Capitol for him WASHINGTON — Rep. Charles Rangel of New York asked 25,000 campaign donors Wednesday to call the Capitol switchboard and urge their representatives to vote against censuring him for ethical misconduct. There’s only one problem. For many of them, Rangel is their congressman. Rangel, 80, a Democrat who has served his Harlem disRangel trict for 40 years, faces a scheduled censure vote today. He’s likely to become the 23rd House member ever to receive the most serious punishment short of expulsion — and the first since 1983. He’s seeking a lesser reprimand for fundraising and financial violations, including failure to pay taxes on income from a vacation villa and filing misleading public financial reports. A censure and reprimand both require votes disapproving Rangel’s conduct. However, only a censure demands that he stand before his colleagues in the front of the chamber, while the speaker reads him the resolution that condemned his conduct.
Army revamps diet FORT LEONARD WOOD, Mo. — At Army training sites across the nation, the mess hall is beginning to look different.
Milk and juice dispensers are replacing soda fountains, and whole grains are being substituted for white bread and pasta. The military increasingly believes that producing quality recruits starts at the dinner table during basic training, so it has started a more emphatic effort to change their eating habits. Color-coded labels point the way to healthy items, and drill sergeants stand watch over the chow line, calling out soldiers who don’t put enough fruit on their plates. Many new soldiers have never given much thought to their diets — a problem that reflects the poor food choices of a nation with more and more obese people.
WikiLeaks scrambles WASHINGTON — WikiLeaks was on the defensive on several fronts Wednesday, scrambling to remain on the Internet and post more U.S. diplomatic documents while its fugitive founder, Julian Assange, was targeted by a European arrest warrant on Swedish rape charges. Amazon.com Inc. prevented WikiLeaks from using the U.S. company’s computers to distribute embarrassing State Department communications and other documents, WikiLeaks said Wednesday. The WikiLeaks site was unavailable for several hours before it moved back to servers owned by its previous Swedish host, Bahnhof, which are housed in a protective Cold War-era bunker. At the same time, Swedish officials intensified legal pressure on Assange by asking European police to arrest him. The Associated Press
GOP to block bills until tax cuts are extended By Julie Hirschfeld Davis The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Senate Republicans threatened Wednesday to block virtually all legislation until expiring tax cuts are extended and a bill is passed to fund the federal government, vastly complicating Democratic attempts to leave their own stamp on the final days of the post-election Congress. “While there are other items that might ultimately be worthy of the Senate’s attention, we cannot agree to prioritize any matters above the critical issues of funding the government and preventing a job-killing tax hike,” all 42 GOP senators wrote in a letter to Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. The 42 signatures are more than enough to block action on almost any item Reid wishes to advance. The threat does not apply to a new arms control treaty with Russia that is pending, since it would be debated under rules that differ from those that apply to routine legislation. President Barack Obama has made ratification of the pact a top priority. But it does threaten Democratic attempts to lift the Pentagon’s ban on openly gay members of the military, a separate item to give legal status to young illegal immigrants who attend college or serve in the military and a measure to expand first responders’ collective bargaining rights.

The tax and spending bills are likely to be the last to pass before Congress adjourns for the year. “Republicans have pleaded with Democrats to put aside their wish-list to focus on the things Americans want us to focus on. “They’ve ignored us. The voters repudiated their agenda at the polls. They’ve ignored them. Time is running out. They’re ignoring that,” Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said in remarks on the Senate floor. “The election was a month ago. It’s time to get serious. It’s time to
focus on priorities.” McConnell and Reid met Wednesday to discuss the legislative agenda, but no agreements were reached. The Democratic to-do list also includes extending the expiring tax cuts — although they and Republicans differ on particulars, as well as a measure to keep the government in operation. But the rest of their agenda marks an attempt to court voters Democrats need in 2012 to recapture the majority, including Hispanics, gay-rights activists and organized labor.
Briefly: World Weapons-grade uranium given up by Belarus ASTANA, Kazakhstan — In a sudden turnaround, the former Soviet republic of Belarus announced Wednesday that it will give up all its weaponsgrade uranium — fresh momentum for anti-proliferation efforts even as the U.S. welcomed Iran’s decision to resume talks on its controversial nuclear program. On a day of whirlwind diplomacy capped by the Belarus deal, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton praised Iran’s Clinton return to nuclear talks, urged Europe to do more in Afghanistan and insisted that recent WikiLeaks disclosures would have no lasting effect on U.S. relations around the world. The Belarus decision is a diplomatic victory for President Barack Obama, who has set a goal of securing all the world’s nuclear materials within four years as a centerpiece of his strategy for denying nuclear weapons to terrorists.
Deadline missed ABIDJAN, Ivory Coast — Ivory Coast’s election commission today violated a midnight deadline to release results from a crucial presidential election, as the ruling party continued to
block the issuance of the final tally and the head of the electoral body went on state TV to snuff out rumors that the opposition had won. Election commission chief Youssouf Bakayoko was seen rushing out of the commission’s office less than an hour before the constitutionally mandated deadline. He appeared on state TV shortly after to say that no official results had yet been proclaimed, a statement that appeared aimed at quelling rumors that opposition leader Alassane Ouattara had won after a Senegalese newspaper released what it said were preliminary results, and a French website and TV station followed suit.
Soldiers raid camps LAGOS, Nigeria — Soldiers raided three militant camps Wednesday hidden in the winding creeks of Nigeria’s oil-rich and restive southern delta, seizing heavy weaponry in an attack rebels claimed killed more than 100 people. The attack started Wednesday afternoon in Delta state, an oil-producing state in the middle of Niger Delta, military spokesman Lt. Col. Timothy Antigha said. Militants in the Niger Delta have attacked pipelines, kidnapped petroleum company employees and fought government troops since 2006. The attacks cut drastically into crude production in Nigeria, an OPEC-member nation that is crucial to U.S. oil supplies. The Associated Press

Obama rejects East Coast oil drilling, citing BP spill By Matthew Daly and Brendan Farrington The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Pointing to the BP blowout and risks of a new environmental disaster, the Obama administration reversed itself Wednesday and promised not to pursue offshore drilling in the eastern Gulf of Mexico or anywhere else along the nation’s East Coast. The decision was hailed in Florida, which depends on tourists drawn by the state’s white beaches, but criticized by the oil industry, which said the administration was stifling crucial U.S. energy production and costing recession-battered jobseekers golden opportunities for new work.
The administration had backed a major expansion of offshore drilling earlier this year, in part to gain support for comprehensive climate legislation in Congress, one of President Barack Obama’s top legislative goals. With that bill now off the table, the president stands much to gain politically by saying no to powerful oil interests, particularly in Florida, which is expected to be a crucial swing state in the 2012 election campaign. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar denied politics played any role, saying the BP spill taught officials a number of lessons, “most importantly that we need to proceed with caution and focus on creating a more stringent regulatory regime.”
The new drilling focus would be on areas with leases that are currently active in the central and western Gulf of Mexico. “In the Gulf and the Atlantic, we are adjusting our strategy,” Salazar said. “We believe the most appropriate course of action is to focus development on areas with existing leases and not expand to new areas at this time.” Under the revised plan, the Interior Department will not propose any new oil drilling in waters in the Atlantic Ocean and eastern Gulf for at least the next seven years. Already-planned lease sales in the Gulf of Mexico, expected in March and August, will be delayed until late 2011 or early 2012, Salazar said.

Nation: JFK’s assassin’s coffin now up for auction
Nation: $30 million given in Del. priest abuse case
World: Benedict would use electric popemobile
World: Global warming could double grain prices
A ghoulish piece of American history is now up for sale to the highest bidder. The modest wooden coffin in which John F. Kennedy’s assassin — Lee Harvey Oswald — was buried for 18 years is being auctioned off by Allen Baumgardner, owner of Baumgardner Funeral Home in Fort Worth, Texas. The brown pine box, its rusted metal ornamentation still intact, was dug up in 1981 as part of an effort to put to rest theories that Oswald wasn’t in it. Authorities used dental records to conclude the remains did indeed belong to the man who shot the president to death in 1963.
A Delaware jury has awarded $30 million in damages to a man who claimed he was abused by a priest — a verdict that was exceptional for both the dollar value and for finding the local parish liable, not just the diocese. The lawsuit by John Vai claimed that he was abused repeatedly as a boy in the 1960s by Francis DeLuca when the former priest was a teacher at St. Elizabeth’s parish in Wilmington, Del. Advocates for victims of clergy abuse said the value of the compensatory damages was the largest ever awarded in such a lawsuit in the United States and that a parish had never before been found liable for abuse.
Anyone have a fast, solar-powered electric popemobile for his holiness? The Vatican said Pope Benedict XVI would gladly use one as another sign of his efforts to promote sustainable energy and take care of the planet, but one has yet to be offered. Cardinal Giovanni Lajolo, who runs the Vatican City state, said Wednesday Benedict would certainly prefer an electric popemobile to a traditional, petroleum-powered one given the priority he has given to making the Vatican a leader in green energy. His comments came during a presentation of a book on the Vatican’s ecological efforts.
Even if we stopped spewing global warming gases today, the world would face a steady rise in food prices this century. But on our current emissions path, climate change becomes the “threat multiplier” that could double grain prices by 2050 and leave millions more children malnourished, global food experts reported Wednesday. Beyond 2050, when climate scientists project temperatures might rise to as much as 11.5 degrees over 20thcentury levels, the planet grows “gloomy” for agriculture, said senior research fellow Gerald Nelson of the International Food Policy Research Institute.

Head of potato group ends all-potato diet By Shannon Dininny The Associated Press
YAKIMA — The head of the Washington State Potato Commission has ended his highly publicized 60-day, all-potato diet lighter by 21 pounds and hungry for more than spuds. Chris Voigt started the diet Oct. 1 to draw attention to federal proposals to bar or limit potatoes in some programs, arguing that potatoes are high in nutrients. On Monday, the last day of the diet, he said he wouldn’t consider it a total success unless the government changes its stance, but he said he welcomes the public attention for potatoes drawn by the stunt. “The people who know me closely know I’m a huge
introvert, so this is kind of out of my comfort zone, being front and center,” he said. “But this is also part of my job, so I embrace it and welcome it.”
Rule changes Potatoes are the only vegetable not allowed for purchase under the federal Women, Infants and Children program, known as WIC. The U.S. Department of Agriculture employed the change under an interim rule following a recommendation by the Institute of Medicine, the health arm of the National Academy of Sciences. The institute also called for the USDA-backed school lunch program to limit use of potatoes.

The head of the Washington State Potato Commission, Chris Voigt, poses for a photo in Moses Lake on Nov. 19. The USDA is expected to release its school lunch menu proposals by the end of the year. That program subsidizes lunch and breakfast for nearly 32 million needy kids
in most public schools and many private ones, and those schools must follow guidelines on what they serve. “If we are successful in convincing USDA to put

He expects to record a second album that will be released in Europe next June and in the U.S. after the first has run its course. Since this is the music business, Lynge said, everything can change.

If they like something, they will go out of their way to tell you, and that means a lot that they will express their appreciation.” While at the Uptown Pub on Tuesday night, he performed several of his originals, one that was played as background in the “Brothers and Sisters” television series, along with
relaxed versions of the songs “Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay” and “Lean on Me.” Some audiences prefer the familiar but can be won over by something new. “We are inundated with so much information on so many different fronts that people seek what they know because it offers them comfort, ” Lynge said. “You have to convince people that you have something interesting, even if it is something they have never heard before. “That’s what a good song is all about.

“The Navy thinks, rightly or wrongly, that they don’t want these maps circulated because they think it would make it easier to blow up the munitions,” Breyer said. “They want the firemen to have them, they want the civil defense workers to have them, but they don’t want people who might blow them up to have them.” On the other hand, Milner argued that the people who live nearby have valid reasons for wanting to know whether they would be endangered by an explosion. “Can the public seek information that places the community at a severe security risk? Is it possible for us to say that that kind of information . . . could not be legitimate public information?” Justice Sonia Sotomayor asked. An explosion at the Navy’s Port Chicago ammunition depot during World War II killed 320 people. Milner is a longtime community activist who is concerned about safety issues at several area naval facilities. His lawyer, David Mann, also pointed out what he described as the arbitrary nature of the government’s responses to document requests. While one Navy official refused to release the map from the ammunition dump, an official at a nearby submarine base provided Milner the map showing the probable range of damage from an explosion there. The Associated Press is among 20 news media organizations that filed a brief urging the court to limit the government’s invocation of the personnel exemption.

Two people suffered slight exposure and were taken to Jefferson Healthcare, where they were treated and discharged, Krysinski said. The fire department called in state Department of Ecology personnel, who directed disposal of the material to the Port of Port Townsend’s hazardous waste facility. The level of available emergency services is determined by average need, population and property taxes, Krysinski said. “If you live on the Peninsula, you are not going to get the same service level you would if you lived in a highly populated area like Seattle,” Krysinski said. Cerna said the Life Care Center currently has 58 residents and a nursing staff that includes 13 registered nurses and 12 licensed practical nurses. She credited the nursing staff for their quick response and their ability to diagnose problems before they become critical. She was also pleased with the emergency services’ response time, even to the multiple incidents. “They were here right away, and they were just awesome,” she said.

LAPUSH — Actress Julia Jones — the female werewolf Leah Clearwater in “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” — will help raise money for the Quileute tribe’s annual Cherish Our Children fundraiser Friday. Jones, who is making the appearance on the night of the release of the “Eclipse” DVD, will sign autographs for a fee to raise money for the charity, said tribal spokeswoman Jackie Jacobs. Cherish Our Children, an auction to raise money to buy holiday gifts for needy children, starts at 5 p.m., and Jones will sign autographs from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the A-ka-lat center in LaPush. The charity divides money between the Quileute Housing Authority and Forks Santa’s Workshop, which both give presents to children in need. “We are thrilled that Julia Jones is joining us for the Cherish our Children event this year,” the Quileute Tribal Council said in a statement. “During this season of giving, she exemplifies the meaning of giving back, and we give thanks for her generosity . . . Quileute Tribal Council thanks Summit Entertainment and Julia Jones for truly making this a cherished ‘Twilight’ event,” the council said. Jones, who is part Chickasaw and Choctaw, plays the character Leah Clearwater in “Eclipse,” which was released in June. Eclipse is the third novel
in Stephenie Meyer’s four-part series about teen love and vampires set in Forks. It was Jones preceded by Twilight and New Moon and followed by Breaking Dawn. Clearwater is the sole female member of the Quileute “wolf pack” in a group of Quileute teens who morph into werewolves when vampires encroach on their territory. Clearwater is also an emotional example of “imprinting” when werewolves find their soulmates. Her boyfriend, Sam, becomes a werewolf — and leader of the pack — and leaves her for another woman named Emily when he imprints on Emily instead of Leah. Jones will play the role also in both parts of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn,” which are due out in November 2011 and November 2012. On Friday, Jones will sign 8-inch-by-10-inch photographs, as well as a limited number of DVDs of “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” which will be released at the event — a few hours before its midnight release in the rest of the area. The prices are: ■ Autographed photo — $40. ■ Autographed photo as well as a photo with Jones on a personal camera — $50. camera ■ Personal

Ramsey remains in the Grays Harbor County Jail on $150,000 bail. Court records stated the mother took the twins from their Midwest home when the girls were about 2 years old. She was found in Port Angeles in 2008. Ramsey sued for child support, but Clallam County Superior Court awarded custody to the father. The mother and children then disappeared again. “The father has been looking for them for 11 years,” court documents said.
Protective custody When authorities confronted Ramsey about the custody order, she said the order had been an ongoing issue with the Clallam County court. She complained the court was “torturing” her family. Grays Harbor court documents said Ramsey suffers from mental issues and alleges she took the twins after being released from a mental institution. When she sued for child support in 2008, court records alleged she regularly disobeyed the parenting plan, the court documents said. “Between April 2008 and May 2009, defendant constantly impeded the court’s intent and the court found Ms. Ramsey in contempt of court and finally the court ordered a mental evaluation,” court records stated. A court officer assigned
to the case reported Ramsey is “so toxic to the girls that they are likely to become warped regarding men in general and the father in particular.” Early this year, the Clallam County court awarded sole custody of the twins to the father. Authorities said the mother moved the children to the Grays Harbor area and home-schooled them for several months. When a Grays Harbor deputy found the family a few weeks ago, Ramsey said she would help the girls pack, but they fled out an upstairs window.
Obstructing justice Although she denied any knowledge of their escape, she was arrested for allegedly obstructing justice. “The girls were located the next day wandering on the highway and taken to Clallam County, where they are currently staying in a foster home,” court documents said. “During an interview, they explained that since leaving Port Angeles in 2009, they have lived with the defendant in Shelton, Olympia, Montesano, Aberdeen and Hoquiam.”

MONTESANO — A Midwest mother found living with her twin daughters in Artic this month — after surfacing in Port Angeles in 2008 — has denied charges she violated a court order by going on the run with the children for more than 10 years. Sharie R. Ramsey, 49, pleaded not guilty in Grays Harbor Superior Court in Montesano on Monday to two counts of first-degree custodial interference for allegedly stealing her now14-year-old daughters from their father, who authorities say spent years searching for them.
The family was found living under fake names in an Artic area home south of Aberdeen on Nov. 4. Ramsey was arrested at the home, but the daughters fled into the woods and were found safe the next morning. They are now in protective custody.
THE NEXT THREE DAYS DUE DATE
PORT ANGELES — Robert Pyle spent a year on a wild-butterfly chase and lived to tell the tale. He’ll do that tonight with a talk on his book Mariposa Road: The First Butterfly Big Year in the Raymond Carver Room at the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St. Admission to the 7 p.m. presentation is free. Part road-trip tale, part travelogue of lost and found landscapes, all good-natured natural history, Mariposa Road tracks Pyle’s journey across the United States as he races against the calen-
dar in his search for as many of the 800 species of American butterflies as he can find. Mariposa Road recounts his adventures, high and low, tracking down butterflies in his own low-tech way. Accompanied by Marsha, his cottonwood-limb butterfly net; Powdermilk, his 1982 Honda Civic with 345,000 miles on the odometer; and the small Leitz binoculars he has carried for more than 30 years, Pyle ventured out in a series of trips from his Northwest home. On his quest, Pyle roamed the California
coastline in the company of overwintering monarchs, ventured to the far northern tundra in pursuit of mysterious sulphurs and arctics, and traveled from Graceland to ranchland and Kauai to Key West, enjoying intimate encounters with the land, its people and its other fauna. Pyle is the author of 13 other books, including Where Bigfoot Walks, Wintergreen and Sky Time in Gray’s River, which won the National Outdoor Book Award. He’ll have copies of his books available for sale and signing tonight.

Peninsula Daily News
POULSBO — A Port Angeles man was treated and discharged after a wreck involving two semitrucks near the Hood Canal bridge earlier this week. Terry Duane McCallister, 64, was taken by ambulance to Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton for complaints of back and neck pain after his 2009 Kenworth T800 tractor was hit in the rear by a 2009 Mack
log truck on state Highway 3 at 2:15 p.m. Tuesday, the State Patrol said. He was discharged by Wednesday. The Mack truck driver, a 49-year-old Bremerton man, James Edwin Aaro, was not hurt, the State Patrol said. The collision forced the closure of one lane of traffic for more than an hour while troopers and state Department of Transportation road crews worked to move the trucks from the road. The State Patrol gave
this account: The two trucks were both traveling north. McCallister was stopping for traffic at Milepost 59 when Aaro failed to stop and hit McCallister’s truck in the rear. The Bremerton man could be cited for driving too closely, according to the report. The Mack truck was towed from the scene of the wreck, while McCallister’s truck was drivable.

MoveOn vigil at Rep. Dicks’ office Message: Cut tax break for rich, keep it for middle class Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Clallam County MoveOn members will gather at Rep. Norm Dicks’ office today to urge him to vote against extending tax cuts for the wealthy but support keeping in place cuts for those earning less than $250,000 annually. It’s a position for which the Belfair Democrat — who represents the 6th Congressional District, which includes the North Olympic Peninsula — has expressed sympathy but with perhaps some adjustments. MoveOn members will
gather at Dicks’ Port Angeles office at 332 E. Fifth St. at 4 p.m., staging a vigil and “speak-out” at the corner of Peabody and Fifth streets. In a letter to William Kildall, Clallam County MoveOn coordinator, Dicks said that Congress will consider extending tax cuts enacted in 2001 and 2003, which expire at the end of the year. Dicks’ letter was a response to one Kildall presented to the congressman’s office Nov. 18. “Republican leaders in both the House and Senate have endorsed a tax bill that would fully extend all
tax cuts, which the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimates would cost more than $4 trillion over the next 10 years,” Dicks said, adding that such an action would increase the projected budget deficit and increase the interest payments on the national debt by $950 billion. “Under this proposal, almost half of the benefit — $1.9 trillion — would go to the richest 2 percent of taxpayers,” Dicks said. “I am opposed to this expensive and lopsided approach,” he said, adding that he supports a proposal that renews tax cuts for those earning less than $250,000, which would “still represent the largest tax cut in American history.” However, Dicks said, a
Soldier agrees to testify in Afghan shooting case Sentencing follows deal at Lewis-McChord The Associated Press
JOINT BASE LEWISMcCHORD — An Army staff sergeant charged with shooting at unarmed Afghans this year pleaded guilty Wednesday in a deal that requires him to testify against other defendants implicated in an alleged scheme to kill civilians for kicks. Staff Sgt. Robert Stevens of Portland, Ore., admitted to aggravated assault, lying to investigators and other charges at his court-martial. Prosecutors dropped a conspiracy charge as part of the plea agreement.
Confinement A military judge, Lt. Col. Kwasi Hawks, accepted the agreement and late Wednesday sentenced Stevens to nine months in confinement and a reduction in rank to private. Army spokeswoman Maj. Kathy Turner said Stevens must forfeit all pay and allowances during his confinement. Five soldiers are charged with killing three civilians in Kandahar Province this year. Stevens is not one of them but acknowledged that in March, he followed
an order from Staff Sgt. Calvin Gibbs to shoot at two Afghans in a field who posed no threat. Those Afghans were not injured. Stevens is among seven soldiers who face other misconduct allegations, ranging from drug use to beating up a fellow soldier, stemming from an investigation of the unit’s activities. Stevens could provide valuable testimony against Gibbs, the highest ranking soldier charged in the killings. Gibbs is accused of leading the alleged murder plot and putting together a “kill team” to carry out unprovoked attacks. He insists all the shootings were justified. Stevens, a friend of Gibbs, told investigators that he joined Gibbs on patrols even though he was in a different unit. In March, Gibbs ordered Stevens and several other soldiers to join him in shooting at two unarmed men standing in a field, Stevens told investigators. They missed.
Regret expressed “When SSG Gibbs called for us to fire I knew there was not a threat, and that there was no reason to shoot these guys,” Stevens said in a written statement. “I was extremely thankful to find out that we had not killed or wounded either
of those two individuals, and I regret not trying to stop Staff Sgt. Gibbs from trying to kill innocent people,” he said in a sworn statement. Stevens also said Gibbs had shown him a finger he claimed to have cut from the body of an Afghan National Army or Afghan National Police member killed by a roadside bomb, and that Gibbs illicitly collected weapons.
Soldiers’ claims Others claimed that Gibbs dropped such weapons near the bodies of civilians to make them appear to have been combatants. During his court-martial Wednesday, Stevens said Gibbs gave him one illicitly obtained grenade. The News Tribune of Tacoma reported that Stevens said he threw it out of a Stryker vehicle and claimed it had been tossed by an enemy combatant — an incident that resulted in him being awarded a combat action badge. “There was no reason for it,” Stevens said in court. The charges to which he pleaded guilty were aggravated assault with a dangerous weapon, endangering other soldiers, dereliction of duty and making a false statement. The plea agreement requires Stevens to testify against the other defendants as needed by prosecutors.

Finding a cure or just a Band-Aid? Which do you think is less expensive, not to mention preferable — a cure for cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes, or caring for people with these diseases? Wouldn’t it be better mediCal cal and public policy to direct Thomas more resources toward finding a cure for diseases that cost a lot to treat than to rely on a government insurance program, such as Obamacare, which seeks mainly to help pay the bills for people after they become ill? Isn’t the answer obvious? Apparently not to many politicians trapped in an old paradigm that focuses too much on hospitals, doctors and medicines and too little on medical research and preventive care so that people
will not need hospitals, doctors or medicines. The pursuit of cures as a priority is a subject that has been taken up by my colleague James Pinkerton in his forthcoming book entitled Serious Medicine Strategy and on his blog at www. seriousmedicinestrategy.org. It’s not that we are failing to fund research to cure diseases that end lives too early. Rather, it is a failure of political leadership to make research a priority in their speeches and policies. Think back more than 50 years ago to when the political and medical communities united and led the public toward a cure for polio and the elimination of the need for “iron lungs.” This Herculean effort was the medical equivalent of going to the moon. Why can’t we create a united front to find cures for diabetes, Alzheimer’s, cancer and other ailments? Pinkerton believes it’s because
of “the baneful influence of the Food and Drug Administration and the trial lawyers. “If the government would protect the ability of entrepreneurs and scientists to create products without getting sued into oblivion, capital would come pouring into the pharma sector, not only from American investors, but from investors around the world.” That’s because, he notes, people in Europe and Asia now suffer from the same diseases as Americans. Republicans, especially, should pick up on this strategy of cures before care. Instead, most Republicans are singularly focused on repealing the president’s health care “reform” law. It should be repealed, or at least experience an extreme makeover, but repealing that law doesn’t cure anyone of anything. And here’s the double benefit that Obamacare claims for itself, which can never materialize. Finding cures for diseases
helps people live healthier lives, and it’s cost efficient. Look at the money saved from no longer having to treat victims of polio, smallpox and tuberculosis. Imagine the savings when a cure is eventually found for cancer. Plus, the retirement age could be easily raised as older people work longer and live more vigorous, productive (and tax-generating) lives. What’s not to like about any of this? Republican presidential candidates in 2012 — and a Republican president, should the GOP win that election — could change the direction and content of the entire health care debate, if they fashioned a strategy for going to the “medical moon” by a certain and attainable date. We are close to a cure for some diseases, but far from a cure for others. Let’s begin with those closest to a cure. Ask yourself: Would you rather be healthy
Our readers’ letters, faxes
and fit and live a long life? Or be taken care of in your illness by a government health system that sees you as a burden and is constantly trying to reduce care and lower costs? Ask the English, who are currently experiencing the downside to poor care. The problem is that once a nation has made a wrong turn, it is difficult if not impossible to reverse course. America still has time to make the right choice and move in the direction of cures. Now all we need is the political leadership to point the way.

the recipient of the annual peace award of the Friends Committee on National Legislation. With this award, the Quaker public interest lobby in Washington, D.C. ,singles out one member of Congress each year for outstanding legislative efforts that pro-
mote a more peaceful world. Cantwell’s initiative, the bipartisan CLEAR Act, cosponsored by Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, would cap carbon emissions through a polluter permit requirement, return 75 percent of the resulting revenue to citizens to offset their
increased energy bills and use 25 percent to grow a green energy economy and jobs and to reduce U.S. dependence on fossil fuels. The CLEAR Act (“Carbon Limits and Energy for America’s Renewal”) is a peace-promoting bill because extensive evidence

WikiLeaks bares bad U.S. ‘diplomacy’ WikiLeaks is again publishing a trove of documents, in this case classified U.S. State Department diplomatic cables. The whistleblower website Amy will gradually be releasing Goodman more than 250,000 of these documents in the coming months so that they can be analyzed and gain the attention they deserve. The cables are internal, written communications between U.S. embassies around the world to each other and to the U.S. State Department. WikiLeaks described the leak as “the largest set of confidential documents ever to be released into the public domain [giving] an unprecedented insight into U.S. government foreign activities.” Critics argue, as they did with earlier leaks of secret documents regarding Iraq and Afghanistan, that lives will be lost as a result. Rather, lives might actually be saved, since the way that the U.S. conducts diplomacy is now getting more exposure than ever —
as is the apparent ease with which the U.S. government lives up (or down) to the adage used by pioneering journalist I.F. Stone: “Governments lie.” Take the case of Khaled ElMasri. El-Masri was snatched in Macedonia as part of the CIA’s secret extraordinary rendition program, in which people are taken by the U.S. government and sent to other countries, where they can be subjected to torture. He was held and tortured in a secret prison in Afghanistan for months before being dropped by the CIA on an isolated road in Albania, even though the CIA had long established that it had grabbed the wrong man. El-Masri, a German citizen, sought justice through German courts, and it looked like 13 CIA agents might be charged. Then the U.S. Embassy in Berlin stepped in, threatening, according to one cable, that “issuance of international arrest warrants would have a negative impact on our bilateral relationship.” No charges were ever filed in Germany, suggesting the diplomatic threat worked. The 13 agents are, however,

still facing charges in Spain, where prosecutors enjoy some freedom from political pressures. Or so we thought. In fact, Spain figures prominently in the leaked documents as well.
The Couso case Among the cables is one from May 14, 2007, authored by Eduardo Aguirre, a conservative Cuban-American banker appointed U.S. ambassador to Spain by George W. Bush. Aguirre wrote: “For our side, it will be important to continue to raise the Couso case, in which three U.S. servicemen face charges related to the 2003 death of Spanish cameraman Jose Couso during the battle for Baghdad.” Couso was a young cameraman with the Spanish TV network Telecinco. He was filming from the balcony of the Palestine Hotel in Baghdad on April 8, 2003, when a U.S. Army tank fired on the hotel packed with journalists, killing Couso and a Reuters cameraman. Ambassador Aguirre was trying to quash the lawsuit brought by the Couso family in Spain.
The U.S. ambassador was also pressuring the Spanish government to drop a precedent-setting case against former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and other Bush administration officials. In that same memo, Aguirre writes: “The deputy justice minister also said the GOS (government of Spain) strongly opposes a case brought against former Secretary Rumsfeld and will work to get it dismissed. “The judge involved in that case has told us he has already started the process of dismissing the case.” These revelations are rocking the Spanish government, as the cables clearly show U.S. attempts to disrupt the Spanish justice system. Ambassador Aguirre told Spain’s El Pais newspaper several years ago: “I am George Bush’s plumber, I will solve all the problems George gives me.” In another series of cables, the State Department instructs its staff around the world and at the U.N. to spy on people, and, remarkably, to collect biometric information of diplomats. The cable reads: “Data should include e-mail

David Leigh, investigations editor of The Guardian, told me: “We haven’t seen anything yet,” with literally almost a quartermillion cables still not publicly revealed. A renowned political analyst and linguist, MIT professor Noam Chomsky helped Daniel Ellsberg, America’s premier whistle-blower, release the Pentagon Papers 40 years ago. I asked Chomsky about the latest cables released by WikiLeaks. “What this reveals,” he reflected, “is the profound hatred for democracy on the part of our political leadership.”

Park’s quarter coming in 2011 Peninsula Daily News
OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — A special quarter featuring a Roosevelt elk wading into the Hoh River’s gravelly shores against a backdrop of Mount Olympus will be released next year. The specific release date has not been determined. The official design was announced by the U.S. Mint on its website Wednesday. The Olympic National Park quarter will be the eighth in the “America the Beautiful” series that began this year, the website said. Images of national parks and forests are embossed on the flip side of quarters in the order in which they were designated as a park. The series began with Hot Springs National Park in Arkansas in April, according to www.usmint.gov.
Other coins released in 2010 include Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, Yosemite National Park in California, Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona and Mount Hood National Forest in Oregon. In 2011, Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania and Glacier National Park in Montana will precede the release of the Olympic National Park coin. Vicksburg National Military Park in Mississippi and Chickasaw National Recreation Area in Oklahoma will follow later in the year. About five coins will be released each year, and 56 sites were selected for the program. The coins will be issued in the order Congress approved the national sites and will end with Alabama’s Tuskegee Airmen Memorial in early 2021.
Budget cuts could hurt housing effort Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — State Sen. Jim Hargrove warned of impending budget cuts that may limit future similar efforts as he toured the nearly complete Maloney Heights apartment building earlier this week. Hargrove, D-Hoquiam — who represents the 24th District, which includes Clallam and Jefferson counties and part of Grays Harbor County — toured the complex Tuesday. “He wasn’t painting a real rosy picture about the state budget woes,” said Brad Collins, Serenity House capital projects director and a Port Angeles City Council member. “I think there’s real reason to be concerned about funding projects like this in the future.” Hargrove said that the passage of anti-tax measures during the Nov. 2 general election contributed to a deficit

larger than the total social services budget, according to Martha Ireland, Serenity House executive coordinator. “The  capital building fund is already $2 million out of whack,” Ireland quoted Hargrove as saying. That endangers both the Washington Works budget for 2011 and the general assistance unemployable benefits, or GAU. GAU was reduced and renamed Security Lifeline by the this year’s Legislature. It provides medical coupons and a minimal cash stipend to tide people over while they recover from being unemployable or to apply for permanent disability benefits. Without that safety net, another 100 to 150 single adults will be on the streets seeking housing in Clallam County, predicted Kathy Wahto, executive director of Serenity House.

Studio apartments set to be dedicated Dec. 15 Chronically homeless to use housing complex By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Just in time for Christmas, Serenity House of Clallam County and its partners will open a 28-unit permanent housing complex for the chronically homeless in Port Angeles. “It’s a good thing,” said Brad Collins, Serenity House capital projects director and a Port Angeles City Council member. “They don’t have to spend Christmas under a bridge or under a street.” A dedication ceremony for the nearly completed Maloney Heights studio apartment building at 2311 W. 18th St. is planned for Wednesday, Dec. 15, at 12:30 p.m. It is part of a grantfunded $3.3 million project to get people off the streets and into their own home. Maloney Heights is not a homeless shelter. It is “permanent supportive housing,” where a person can access mental health and substance abuse counseling with “a continuity of care,” Collins said. “When they leave [a shelter], they are not there for a long enough time to have broken the cycle of homelessness,” Collins said. “In most instances, they’re still in crisis. They leave, and they’re back on the streets.”
Permanent supportive housing is designed for people with drug and alcohol problems, mental health problems, criminal histories or any other roadblock to housing.
Case workers on site Peninsula Community Mental Health will manage Maloney Heights and have case workers on-site to help tenants. “So the idea is to take people who have these significant barriers to being housed and to get them into housing where they’re not screened out because they have antisocial behavior,” Collins said. “There’s a greater chance they will be able to get treatment and at the very least prevent them from ending up in the [emergency room] or the county jail, where it’s very expensive.”
Reduce jail time, costs Kathy Wahto, executive director of Serenity House of Clallam County, said Maloney Heights will reduce jail time and court costs. “And actually, it’s a good, common sense approach to the problem,” Wahto said. “It’s not just dollars and sense. . . . It’s about people.” Serenity House opened a permanent supportive housing center at the Tempest Building, 535 E. First St.,
in 2008. Collins said one tenant cried on the anniversary of her time there because she had never lived in one place for an entire year. The benefits were reflected in an 85 percent reduction in jail time for Tempest residents, Collins said. The Washington State Housing Trust Fund covered the $1.4 million construction costs of the 28-unit Maloney Heights complex. Corstone Contractors LLC of Snohomish was the primary contractor. Community development block grants covered most of the rest — infrastructure for Maloney Heights and the site of a nearby Habitat for Humanity of Clallam County project.
“We want the community to know this is a housing improvement for the community, even though a small number of people will live there.” Maloney Heights was built for “long-term members of the community who have struggled with alcohol and substance abuse,” she said. “They’ve never had a real place of their own,” Wahto said. “They don’t have a place to live that is safe and secure that they can afford.” Tenants will pay 30 percent of their income, whether it’s fixed or not, for rent. Eight units are reserved for military veterans. Partners in the project include the Serenity House of Clallam County, the Clallam County Housing Authority, Peninsula Community Mental Health Center, West End Outreach, the city of Port Angeles and Clallam County. “It was a very intensive project,” Wahto said. “It involved so many agencies and required constant negotiations of partners with different missions. “We’ve had a huge amount of support on a local government level.” Businesses and private donors provided furniture and much of the landscaping for Maloney Heights.
Habitat plans to build 14 single-family homes for people now living in substandard housing on the same 4.3-acre site as Maloney Heights, which it owns, on the 2300 block of 16th Street. Serenity House and the Housing Authority of the County of Clallam broke ground for the Maloney Heights project in April. The structure has solar panels and was built to demanding environmental standards, Wahto said. The studio apartments have an alcove and a com________ plete kitchen.

Ridge readies for snow lovers THE STREETS ARE safe once again. And now that Snowmageddon Matt 2010 has come and gone, it’s Schubert time to start thinking about Hurricane Ridge. After all, that was a whole bunch of snow that was dumped on the North Olympic Peninsula’s winter wonderland last week. One has to start wondering: When are we going to start re-aggravating our carpal tunnel injuries on some operational rope tows this winter? Unfortunately, the answer isn’t set in snow. Nearly three feet of powder sat atop the Ridge as of Wednesday afternoon. A few more inches, and mountain manager Craig Hofer’s crew can get to the nitty gritty of putting together the intermediate and bunny rope tows. “Hopefully we’re going to be up there by Saturday and start charging after it,” said Hofer, who as worked for more than 30 years on the Ridge. “We’ve done pretty much everything we can do . . . and I think we’re pretty much on schedule. We’ll get the [snowcat] up there this weekend and start picking away at it.” Olympic National Park set the season for organized ski activities for Saturdays and Sundays from Dec. 11 through March 27. Since Hofer’s crew still has a lot of work ahead of it — stringing ropes, setting up gates, etc. — the wait on the rope tows will likely be longer than the schedule start date. Hofer wouldn’t put a timetable on when the tows would be up and running, but if recent history is any indicator, it probably won’t be until sometime around Christmas. As for the Poma lift on the north side of the hill, that usually doesn’t get going until sometime in January.
Snowshoeing As most of you know already, Hurricane Ridge Road is scheduled to open to seven-day-a-week access this winter. With the road open as much as it is, Olympic National Park plans to offer more ranger-led snowshoe walks on the mountain. The one-mile walks last 90 minutes and will be offered for individuals and families at 2 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Monday holidays starting Dec. 10. Space on the walks is limited, so those interested are asked to register at the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center information desk 30 minutes in advance. While the walks are technically free, a $5 donation is suggested. In this case, “donation” loosely translates to “fee freely paid by anyone who isn’t a cheapskate.” Organized groups can make advanced reservations for ranger-led snowshoe walks on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Monday holidays at 10:30 a.m. Group leaders should call Olympic National Park at 360-565-3136 for reservations. Unlike the organized ski activities, the snowshoe walks will most assuredly begin Dec. 10.
Snow bus? It might not be the snow bus, but at least Ridge fans can count on some transportation up the hill this winter. All Points Charters and Tours will offer rides twice daily from downtown Port Angeles to the top of the Ridge on Wednesdays through Sundays starting Dec. 17. Vans will pick up passengers at Vern Burton Community Center, 308 E. Fourth St., in Port Angeles at 9:05 a.m. and 1:05 p.m. for the 45-minute drive. Return trips will leave the Ridge at 11 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Turn

Riders rip W.F. West PA boys open year with bang Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Port Angeles came out on fire and beat highly respected W.F. West 64-51 in its first boys basketball game of the season Wednesday night. “This was a big win for us,” coach Wes Armstrong said. “W.F. West has a very good program and is a regular in the state tournament. “I was pretty pleased with our effort. We have worked hard the past two weeks. “We came out with a lot of fire and intensity.” The Roughriders shot the lights out in the first quarter with a 22-11 lead going into the second priod. They led 37-25 at halftime and 54-34 at the end of three periods of play. Colin Wheeler sparked the Riders with 24 points and nine rebounds while Hayden McCartney added 11 points and eight boards. Ian Ward had 13 points while Casey Smith sank nine. Brock Wade led W.F. West with 21 points. A key to the game was that the Riders played nearly mistake-free with just one turnover in the first half and 11 for the game. “In the first half we put a lot of pressure on them defensively and got a lot of turnovers,” Armstrong said. “We got a lot of fastbreak opportunities from that.”

UW’s Foster eyes Apple Cup win 17 Huskies’ seniors want to keep playing By Tim Booth
The Associated Press
SEATTLE — Mason Foster sat at his locker, letting the time pass as he wondered how it all went wrong. A few minutes became a half-hour, which turned into nearly an hour as he tried figuring out how Washington had reached this point. A winless, 0-12 season was one loss away. The head coach that brought him to Seattle was on his way out. The 2008 Apple Cup and the Huskies’ 16-13 double-overtime loss to rival Washington State is not a pleasant memory for Foster.
“Honestly man, I just try and forget about that game,” Foster said. “The thing about that, I felt it was a great game. It was great to be part of that even though you end up losing at the time and it hurts.” That low Foster experienced two years ago makes the opportunity that awaits this Saturday all that more meaningful for Foster and the rest of Washington’s seniors. A win over the Cougars in the 2010 version of the Apple Cup will send the Huskies (5-6, 4-4 Pac-10) to a bowl game for the first time in eight seasons, perhaps a bowl as highly regarded as the Holiday Bowl. It would complete a quick two-year turnaround from the lowest point in the program’s history. And while most of the attention is on coach Steve Sarkisian and quarterback Jake Locker for being the faces of Washing-
ton’s return from college football’s basement, Foster’s been just as important. He’ll likely finish the 2010 season as the Huskies’ leading tackler for the second time in three seasons, joining 10 other Washington defenders since 1963 — mostly linebackers — who have accomplished that during their careers. Foster currently leads the Pac-10 in tackles per game (12.45) and is second in the country, trailing only Boston College’s Luke Kuechly. Only once this season — last Saturday against California — has Foster finished with fewer than 10 total tackles in a game. “I want to make as many plays as possible,” Foster said. “I feel like I’m having a solid year, but we should be winning more games.

Dawgs: Want to keep playing Continued from B1 “I feel like the defense should be better, but we’re getting there now. We still have got to win. If we don’t win, none of that matters.” Following Foster’s lead, Washington’s defense appears to have turned from its midseason struggles when Arizona, Stanford and Oregon tore apart the Huskies in three straight blowout losses. Washington allowed 1,459 total yards and was outscored 138-30 in the three setbacks. But during the loss to Oregon, the Huskies defense started to improve. Washington became the first team to hold Oregon scoreless in the first quarter this season and trailed only 18-13 into the third quarter before the Ducks’ fastbreak attack took over and rolled to a 53-16 victory. Washington followed up with a 24-7 victory over UCLA where the Huskies allowed just 163 total yards to the Bruins’ inept offense, and then held California without an offensive touchdown in last week’s win. The Huskies have not

Parity is hurting Pac-10 By John Marshall The Associated Press
PHOENIX — Oregon and Stanford appear to be headed to BCS bowl games, which, any other year, would be a huge boost to the respect-hungry Pac-10. The fall off after the Cardinal and Ducks dims that perception. Thanks to a tightly packed bunch of similarly talented teams and a tough nonconference schedule, the Pac-10 is struggling to fill its bowl allotment and more than half the conference could end up with losing records. This year of parity in the Pac-10 may have ruined the postseason party. “The bowl picture is concerning for the Pac-10 because of everybody knocking each other off,” Cal coach Jeff Tedford said. The Pac-10 has just four teams with winning records and only Oregon, Stanford and Arizona are currently bowl eligible. USC has seven wins, but sanctions prohibit the Trojans from playing in a postseason bowl. There’s a chance the conference will have just four bowl teams, which would put it well behind power conferences like the Southeastern (10), Atlantic Coast (nine), Big 12 and Big Ten (eight each).
A down year? The Pac-10 is even behind in the count to smaller conferences like Conference USA and MidAmerican. A down year in the Pac10? Maybe in terms of postseason results. An argument also could be made that the conference was too good for its own good. The Pac-10 is the only conference to play nine league games, leaving just three chances to pad the record for a sixth win. And even with that ninegame gauntlet awaiting, the conference’s teams don’t hold back in nonconference, often scheduling powerhouses instead of patsies. The Pac-10 played the

Health insurance is ante in state contract talks Peninsula Daily News news services
OLYMPIA — State employee unions are on the hot seat as Gov. Chris Gregoire searches for ways to keep the state from going off a budgetary cliff. S t a t e negotiators reopened contract negotiations with many of the unions this week. Among issues on Gregoire the table is the state’s proposal that state workers pick up a larger share of their health insurance benefits. Under terms of their current contracts, most state employees pay 12 percent of their health care premiums; the state pays the remaining 88 percent. In August, Gregoire asked unions to increase their contribution to 26 percent
over the next two years, enough to cover inflationdriven increases in health benefit costs. Unions rebuffed the proposal. But now, in a deepening budget crisis, it’s back on the table. That concession would be worth about $500 million to the state in the 2011-2013 budget cycle.
$5.7 billion deficit The state faces a projected $5.7 billion deficit in a roughly $33 billion budget in 2011-2013. It also faces an unexpected new $385 million shortfall in the current budget, which expires June 30. “The financial situation for our state is significant and will continue to require all of us to work together,” Gregoire said in calling the unions back to the bargaining table Nov. 19. Union leaders said they’re being unfairly targeted.
They note that they agreed to a two-year wage freeze beginning in 2009, accepted several unpaid furlough days, and also absorbed hefty increases in health insurance co-pays and deductibles at the beginning of 2010. “We have taken significant cuts, over a billion dollars and counting,” said Tim Welch, spokesman for the 31,300-member Federation of State Employees. “We’ve had pension fund money diverted, we’ve had pay cuts because of the furloughs, we’ve had layoffs, and our members have had increased workloads.” Under the state’s proposed increase in employee contributions to health benefits, the typical worker with full-family coverage would take a pay cut of $2,316 a year, a nearly 8 percent reduction for a lowpaid custodian, Welch said. On Monday, Gregoire notified legislators that she
is prepared to eliminate the Basic Health Program, which provides subsidized medical insurance to tens of thousands of low-income Washington residents not covered by Medicaid, and do away with cash grants and medical care for childless adults who are unemployed and disabled but not eligible for other assistance. The governor said the state may also have to reduce levy equalization payments, which help kindergarten-tograde-12 school districts in property-poor taxing districts fund basic education. All those steps require legislative action. Gregoire is pushing for a special legislative session this month to enact the drastic cuts in Basic Health and other programs. But majority Democrats have been cool to the idea, saying they prefer to wait until the regular session of the Legislature begins Jan. 10.
State task force recommends tighter regulation of bail system The Associated Press
OLYMPIA — A state task force formed after the shooting deaths of four police officers recommended Wednesday tighter regulation of bail bondsmen and more information-sharing with judges who set bail. The suspect in the police deaths, Maurice Clemmons, bailed out of jail three times in 2009 without ever paying more than 4 percent up front, including just days before the Lakewood police shootings. Unlike some states, Washington does not require people getting a bail bond to pay 10 percent of its value.
The 20-person task force, which was created to study the bail system following the police deaths, did not suggest minimum payment rates for those who get a bail bond. Judges, prosecutors and victims’ advocates have argued for a fixed bail bond premium. But defense attorneys and others have worried that a minimum payment could hurt the poor. Task force member and Snohomish County prosecutor Mark Roe said some officials were “disillusioned” they didn’t know bail bondsmen required less than 10 percent.
But the task force’s chairman, state Sen. Adam Kline, D-Seattle, said the Clemmons case was an extreme example that shouldn’t set policy. He also said a fixed premium could hurt poorer people charged with crimes. State Sen. Mike Carrell, R-Lakewood, said he favors a minimum payment for bail bonds. Without it, bail bondsmen are effectively setting bail instead of judges, Carrell said. The task force’s report recommended that the 2011 Legislature come up with “a generally recognized definition of what bail means, sub-
ject to further discussion.” It also suggested giving judges more information about people seeking bail, such as risk-prediction tools from the Department of Corrections and mental health records. Bondsmen should also be required to go through background checks and county court systems, which verify bail-bonding companies, could be required to tell each other whether bail-bond companies are on shaky financial footing. Voters in November approved a state constitutional amendment that grants judges broader authority to deny bail.
Lured by discounts? Cyber Monday exceeds $1 billion for first time ever The Associated Press
NEW YORK — Americans jumped on deals and promotions offered online on Cyber Monday — the unofficial kickoff to the online shopping season — spending $1 billion and making it the busiest Internet shopping day ever, according to new data. Research firm comScore Inc. said revenue rose 16 percent from a year ago to $1.03 billion on the Monday after Thanksgiving, the first one-day spending total above $1 billion ever. Still, analysts cautioned that better results in stores and online during the busy Thanksgiving weekend don’t necessarily mean the whole holiday period will be strong.
Shoppers might have just been lured by discounts, pulling forward sales from December. A better picture may emerge today, when the nation’s retailers release revenue figures for the month. Analysts expect revenue in stores open at least a year, a key measurement of a retailer’s fiscal health, to rise 3.6 percent in November, according to a poll by Thomson Reuters. Analysts expect sales of teen clothing and, notably, men’s clothing will be strong. “Men have not done major wardrobe updates in three to four years,” RBC Capital Markets analyst Howard Tubin said. “This year, it seems men are focusing on
apparel again.” Industry watchers will also be looking for indications that Americans are spending on themselves, and not just sticking to Christmas lists. Since the beginning of November, online sales are up 13 percent to $13.55 billion, according to comScore.
Shoppers respond Shoppers responded to the deals and bargains they found online, comScore Chairman Gian Fulgoni said. Whether they continue to do so in December isn’t yet clear, he added. Cyber Monday was also PayPal’s biggest day ever. Online payments rose 19 percent from last year.

Though it is growing quickly, online spending makes up only 8 percent to 10 percent of total holiday spending.

Rising star count shakes astronomy world By Seth Borenstein The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — The night sky may be a lot starrier than we thought. A study suggests the universe could have triple the number of stars scientists previously calculated. For those of you counting at home, the new estimate is 300,000,000,000,000,000, 000,000. That’s 300 sextillion. The study questions a key assumption that astronomers often use — that most galaxies have the same properties as our Milky Way. And that’s creating a bit of a stink among astronomers who want a more orderly cosmos. It’s one of two studies published online Wednesday in the journal Nature that focus on red dwarf stars, the most common stars in the universe. The study that offers the new estimate on stars is led by a Yale University astronomer. He calculates that there are far more red dwarfs than previously thought, and that inflates the total star count. A second study led by a
Harvard University scientist focuses on a distant “super Earth” planet and sees clues to the content of its atmosphere — the first of this kind of data for this size planet. It orbits a red dwarf. Red dwarf stars — about a fifth the size of our sun — burn slowly and last much longer than the bigger, brighter stars, such as the sun in the center of our solar system, said Yale astronomer Pieter van Dokkum. His study looks at how many red dwarfs are in elliptical-shaped galaxies.
Counting stars When scientists had estimated previously how many stars there were in the universe, they assumed that all galaxies had the same ratio of dwarf stars as in our galaxy, which is spiral-shaped. Much of our understanding of the universe is based on observations inside our Milky Way and then extrapolated to other galaxies. But about one-third of the galaxies in the universe are not spiral but elliptical, and van Dokkum found they aren’t really made up the

same way as ours. Using the Keck telescope in Hawaii, van Dokkum and a colleague gazed into eight other distant but elliptical galaxies and looked at their hard-to-differentiate light signatures. The scientists calculated that elliptical galaxies have more of those dwarf stars. A lot more. “We’re seeing 10 or 20 times more stars than we expected,” van Dokkum said. By his calculations, that triples the number of estimated stars from 100 sextillion to 300 sextillion. For the past month, astronomers have been buzzing about van Dokkum’s findings, and many aren’t too happy about it, said astronomer Richard Ellis of the California Institute of Technology. Van Dokkum’s paper challenges the assumption of “a more orderly universe” and gives credence to “the idea that the universe is more complicated than we think,” Ellis said. “It’s a little alarmist.” Ellis said it is too early to tell if van Dokkum is right or wrong, but it is shaking up the field “like a cat among pigeons.” Van Dokkum agreed, saying, “Frankly, it’s a big pain.” Ellis said the new study does make sense. Its biggest weakness might be its assumption that the chemical composition of dwarf stars is the same in elliptical galaxies as in the Milky Way. That might be wrong, Ellis said. Even if it is, it would mean there are only five times more red dwarf stars in elliptical galaxies than scientists previously thought, instead of 10 or 20, van Dokkum said.
Dwarf star Slightly closer to home, at least in our own galaxy, one dwarf star has astronomers at Harvard taking another step in their search for life.
A cluster of diverse galaxies is seen in this picture taken by the Hubble Space Telescope in 2006. They were able to home in on the atmosphere of a planet circling that star using the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope in Chile. The planet lives up to the word alien. Their paper reports that this giant planet’s atmosphere is either dense with sizzling water vapor like a souped-up steam bath, or it’s full of hazy, choking hydrogen and helium clouds with a slightly blue tint. The latter is more likely, say the researchers and others not involved in the study. While scientists have been able to figure out the atmosphere of gas giants the size of Jupiter or bigger, this is a first for the type of
planet called a super Earth — something with a mass two to 10 times Earth’s. It is more comparable to Neptune and circles a star about 42 light-years from Earth. A light-year is nearly 6 trillion miles.
Habitable planets And while this planet is nowhere near livable — it’s about 440 degrees — characterizing its atmosphere is a big step toward understanding potentially habitable planets outside our solar system, said study chief author Jacob Bean at the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. “You wouldn’t want to be there — it would be unpleas-
ant,” said study co-author Eliza Kempton of the University of California, Santa Clara. Bean and Kempton looked at the light spectrum signature from the large planet as it passed in front of the dwarf star, and the result led to two possible conclusions — steam bath or haze. The steam bath is the more interesting possibility because water is key to life, said outside scientist Alan Boss of the Carnegie Institution of Washington. But an upcoming and still unpublished study by Kempton and Bryce Croll at the University of Toronto points more toward a hydrogenhelium atmosphere, several astronomers said.

By moving and leaving their pets behind, she has taught her son that animals are “disposable.” An animal is a commitment for life, not an object to be disposed of once one’s lifestyle changes. A pet is a member of the family, the same as a child or other family member. “Petless” should have kept looking until they found an affordable place where they could keep their pets. The shelters are full of pets who have been abandoned by their families due to moves, divorces, etc. “Petless” cannot afford the fees to keep a pet — but I’m willing to bet that she can afford a cell phone, cable TV, etc. She missed a chance to teach her son how to be a responsible pet owner and how to honor the commitment that was made to those pets. What a shame. Responsible Pet Owner in Reading, Pa.
For Better or For Worse
Dear Responsible Pet Owner: Your point is well-taken, and some readers did agree with you. However, not knowing the woman’s circumstances, I am unwilling to judge her. Other readers did reach out to offer ways to encourage “Toby” to love animals and someday become a responsible pet owner. Read on:
Frank & Ernest
Dear Abby: There are a lot of options for pet lovers without resources for permanent adoption. “Petless” could contact the local SPCA and other agencies that might be looking for volunteers to have “visits” with pets. There is also a pretty big market for “dog walkers.” There is even a market for pet sitters, who do it to make extra money for their families. Sandi in San Francisco
Dear Abby: There are rescue groups that have to put some of their adoptable dogs into boarding while they wait for a forever home. These dogs would love an hour or
dear abby two of “breaking jail” for a walk or a Van Buren trip to the dog park. A reputable organization would know the personalities of its dogs and be able to steer the mom toward “kid-tested” dogs that would get along great with her son. It would not only be an excellent way to encourage the boy, but also a wonderful thing for the dogs. Ashley in San Marcos, Calif.
Dear Abby: How about “Petless” contacting a senior center to see which seniors might need assistance with walking their dogs or with cat care? An assisted-living facility could also use this type of help. It would provide “Toby” a chance to share the love of animals, and the elderly residents would welcome such a sweet helper. Pegeen in Rio Rancho, N.M. Dear Abby: You frequently recommend readers seek therapy. I have been in therapy for eight years and see very little progress. Do you have any statistics that prove how helpful therapy actually is? Skeptical in San Francisco Dear Skeptical: Although I don’t have statistics, I do have testimonials from individuals who have found therapy to be beneficial. I have printed some of them in this column. I do, however, have a suggestion for you: After eight years and “very little progress,” you may be with the wrong person, and you should seriously consider changing therapists. –––––––– Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

The Last Word in Astrology By Eugenia Last ARIES (March 21-April 19): You may be used to rushing here and there but today you must slow down and give a little more time and attention to what you do and say. Tactful diplomacy will be required. Get involved in an activity that will ease your stress. 3 stars TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Be the leader and take charge. Getting along with colleagues will ensure you get the support you need. A change at work or within an organization you do business with will be favorable. 3 stars
Rose is Rose
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): There is money to be made and contracts to draw up and sign. An opportunity to help someone will lead to a job that brings a cash return. Don’t turn down a chance to volunteer your services. 3 stars
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Plan a social event or get together with friends who share your interests. Do something that will make you happy or will help you feel good about yourself. Love and romance are highlighted. 5 stars
Dennis the Menace
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Sticking around home may result in an emotional situation. Do something that challenges and inspires you. Don’t show your surprise or upset if you don’t like what you hear from a friend. 2 stars VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’ll have to pick your battles carefully. On the one hand, you can have some really good talks that lead to constructive change. But you can also meet with disapproval and criticism if you are too vocal. Stay calm. 4 stars LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t let depression set in just because someone is giving you a hard time. A little creativity incorporated into whatever you do will differentiate your work from that of others. Do something nice for a friend, relative or neighbor. 3 stars SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Do what you can to make your home life better. Plan to have friends over or offer your home as a meeting place for colleagues. You may find that you are thinking more about a past partner. Weigh the pros and cons. 3 stars

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): It will be difficult to contain your feelings, especially if someone is giving you the runaround or playing emotional games with you. Don’t mix business with pleasure. Someone is likely to let you down or not show you the respect you deserve. 4 stars CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Prepare for the unexpected. If you are ready for whatever can go wrong, you can avoid a situation with someone who tends to overreact. You can avoid a lot of unnecessary turmoil if you refuse to argue with someone who is looking for a fight. 2 stars AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Emotions will escalate. You can start working on something innovative or lend a helping hand to someone in need, but if you leave yourself too much idle time, you will eventually run into trouble. A last-minute change of plans will cause upset. 2 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Try your hand at something you’ve always wanted to do but never had the time. The skills you have, coupled with your imagination, will lead to a profitable venture. Someone with the ability to help you get ahead will like what you are doing. 5 stars

Get thorough check Dear Doctor: I own a 2003 Lincoln Aviator with about 160,000 miles. It began overheating. The shop said I needed a radiator. Then I felt a “skipping” in the engine. I took it to the dealership. They said I did not need a new radiator. They put dye in to see if there was a leak. None was found. The “check engine” light finally came on showing cylinder No. 8. The dealership replaced the spark plug.

The truck is still overheating, and the engine is skipping. Three weeks later, I was told that I need a new radiator and all eight coils need to be replaced. I have replaced eight sparks and plugs, eight coils and a radiator. The truck is still skipping. Do you have any suggestions? Kandi Dear Kandi: Bring the SUV to an expert who can actually troubleshoot both engine skip and overheating problems. Have the technician check for hydrocarbons in the cooling system. If the test is positive, then there is either a problem with a cylinder head or head gasket. This would explain the skip and overheating. If there is no hydrocarbon reading in the cooling system, then a step-by-step checking is needed. When the radiator was removed, did anyone run water through it to see if it was partly blocked? Are the fins on the water pump impeller worn out? As for the engine skip, has anyone checked compression and/or the fuel injector? These all need to
