Ambulance’s ticket fixed Irked Samaritans pay Quilcene fire agency fine for ducking toll By Julie McCormick For Peninsula Daily News

QUILCENE — The state Department of Transportation offered to reimburse the Quilcene Fire District for the $52 fine it paid for bypassing a toll booth during an emergency run last September. But it was too late. “I told them it had already been taken care of,” said Fire Chief Robert Low. An incensed private citizen gave the dis-

trict a check for the ticket, and KOMO-TV commentator Ken Schram is sending $104 for the next two times, Low said. It’s all part of the fallout from a KOMO story Tuesday night about a fire district driver’s decision to speed through a toll booth at the Tacoma Narrows Bridge to deliver a patient in life-threatening respiratory distress to Tacoma General Hospital. KOMO is a Seattle news partner of the Peninsula Daily News. The patient is fine, but the automated photo-toll system at the bridge automatically took a picture of the license plate and automatically sent a fine notice to the Quilcene department two weeks later. The district called the Pierce County court number on the ticket to protest the fine but was told it would have to go to court, Low said.

Transportation officials said they would have waived the fine, but no one at the fire district knew to call them, Low said. The resulting kerfuffle has turned into a perfect publicity storm, to hear Low describe it. Hundreds of e-mails and calls flooded in to Transportation, he was told on a conference call with officials there the day after the story was broadcast.

Soon to be corrected What looks like a big flaw in the state system for tolls — which by law may not be charged to emergency vehicles on emergency runs — is about to be fixed anyway, said Transportation spokeswoman Patty Michaud. Turn

A slash of half of a state agency’s contracted grants to community health clinics will carve a large dent into Olympic Community Action Programs’ dental services in Port Angeles, Port Townsend and Forks — but won’t affect Jefferson Healthcare’s services. The state Health Care Authority announced this week that it suspended monthly grant payments to three dozen organizations representing 214 clinics statewide for six months beginning Jan. 1 to save about $5.3 million. That translates into a cut of half of the contracted amounts for the fiscal year from July 1 of this year to June 30 of next year. The move affects four agencies on the North Olympic Peninsula: Clallam Bay Medical Clinic, Jefferson Healthcare hospital, the Makah tribe and OlyCAP. The state Health Care Authority said that the money could be reinstated if the state Legislature approves a supplemental budget. But in the meantime, the reduction will mean a cut in dental services from OlyCAP, said Tim Hockett, OlyCAP executive director. Turn



Sound engineer hears his future Blind since birth, he receives gear for digital records By Julie McCormick

For Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — Douglas Daniels is going back to work. After five years on bare-bones disability payments, the 60-yearold Port Townsend man hopes soon to be earning enough money with a recording studio to take a trip once in awhile, maybe occasionally buy a good folk album. And pay income taxes. Daniels, who as a premature newborn suffered irreparable eye damage from the oxygen treat-

ment prevalent at the time, still managed to become a highly skilled sound engineer specializing in recording folk music and presenting radio programs in Eugene, Ore. He attended the Oregon School for the Blind as a child, where touch and sound emphasis prepared him well for a successful technical career at the controls of highly specialized equipment. It was his only passion. “I wasn’t even interested in girls,” Daniels cracked. But then the digital age dawned in the early 1990s.

SAMUEL T. COHEN, 89, a neutron bomb inventor who designed the tactical nuclear weapon intended to kill people but do minimal damage to structures, has died, his son said Wednesday. Mr. Cohen died from complications of stomach cancer Sunday at his home in the Brentwood Mr. Cohen in 1982 section of Los Angeles, his son Paul Cohen said. Mr. Cohen worked for the RAND Corp. and the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory when he developed the small neutron bomb in 1958, which used tiny particles that could zip through tanks, walls or buildings with minimal damage but kill humans, usually by attacking their central nervous system. It also minimized longterm nuclear contamination. Ethicists questioned a weapon designed to destroy only life, but Mr. Cohen spent much of his life advocating for its adoption, saying the bomb’s limited effects were a more moral alternative to other nuclear weapons.

“It’s the most sane and moral weapon ever devised,” Mr. Cohen told the New York Times in September. “It’s the only nuclear weapon in history that makes sense in waging war. When the war is over, the world is still intact.”


JOHN D’AGOSTINO SR., 81, whose work in comic books ranged from Archie and Jughead to the Incredible Hulk and G.I. Joe, among others, has died. Mr. D’Agostino died Sunday of bone cancer in Ansonia, Conn., publisher Archie Comics said Tuesday in a statement. Born in Italy in 1929, Mr. D’Agostino emigrated to the United States and got his first job as head colorist at New York City’s Timely Comics, the forerunner of Marvel. He worked with Stan Lee, who went on to co-create numerous memorable superheroes, including Spi-

der-Man and the Fantastic Four. While working at Timely, Mr. D’Agostino — his nickname was “Jon” — helped supervise another artist, Stan Goldberg, who later become synonymous with the high school adventures of Archie, Reggie, Veronica and Betty at Riverdale High School. Mr. D’Agostino later joined Goldberg, hired in 1965 by Archie Comics Managing Editor Richard Goldwater, and began a long and enduring career drawing numerous characters until his death, becoming one of the company’s most prominent artists. Besides Jughead, Mr. D’Agostino also drew for titles like “My Little Margie,” “G.I. Joe, A Real American Hero,” “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” and “Sonic the Hedgehog,” among others. Mr. D’Agostino also did the letters for the first three issues of Marvel’s “The Amazing Spider-Man.”

Briefly: World South Korea defense pick vows retaliation SEOUL, South Korea — President Lee Myung-bak’s choice for new defense minister said South Korean jets will bomb North Korea should Pyongyang stage another attack. The tough words come as Lee’s government suffers criticism that the response to a deadly North Korean artillery barrage of a South Korean Kim island last week was weak. Lee’s nominee, Kim Kwanjin, told a parliamentary confirmation hearing that any North Korean aggression will result in airstrikes. He said South Korea will use all its combat capabilities to retaliate. Kim said it will be difficult for North Korea to conduct a full-scale war because of its weak economy and worries over the success of a plan to transfer power from leader Kim Jong Il to his young, untested son, Kim Jong Un.

3 hottest years CANCUN, Mexico — A scorching summer that killed thousands in Russia and exceptionally mild winters in the Arctic were among extreme weather events that have put 2010 on track to be one of the three hottest years on record,

U.N. experts said Thursday. The data from the World Meteorological Organization show that the last decade was the warmest ever, part of a trend that scientists attribute to man-made pollution trapping heat in the atmosphere. Europeans and some Americans may think it was chilly this year, but their unusually cold winters were more than balanced by searing temperatures from Canada to Africa and the Indian subcontinent, said Michel Jarraud, WMO’s secretary-general. The WMO’s preliminary report was released on the sidelines of a 193-nation U.N. conference on climate change. The WMO said the same extreme weather event that suffocated Russia also caused the floods that submerged a fifth of Pakistan, killing 1,700 people and displacing 20 million.

Sharks nabbed CAIRO — Two sharks suspected of mauling four tourists at an Egyptian Red Sea resort have been caught, the Egyptian Environment Ministry said Thursday.

The sharks were taken to Ras Mohammed Conservation Center to be dissected to see if there were any human remains inside. The Associated Press

Biggest-ever Israeli forest fire kills dozens Guards trying to save inmates die when flames trap their bus By Dan Balilty

The Associated Press

MEGADIM, Israel — Dozens of Israeli guards trying to rescue prisoners threatened by the worst forest fire in the country’s history died Thursday when their bus became trapped in the same inferno. As the guards raced toward the prison holding mostly Palestinians, a lone tree fell across the road, blocking their path. With no way out, many of them were burned alive inside the vehicle. Others perished while trying to flee the flames fed by brush left tinder-dry by lack of rain. When the smoke cleared, at least 36 were dead. “This is a disaster of unprecedented proportions,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said. The flames forced 12,000 people from their homes, leveled a village and threatened to cause

irreparable harm to one of Israel’s few forested areas. The fire was still burning out of control near midnight. Israel issued a rare call for international assistance, a measure of the severity of the disaster. Turkey put aside recent tensions to pledge aid, and Netanyahu’s office said Greece, Spain and Cyprus agreed to send firefighting helicopters. Additional aid was coming from Britain, Russia, Egypt, Azerbaijan, Romania, Jordan and Bulgaria. Fire officials said the blaze had blackened some 1,600 acres. Police also evacuated a university, three prisons and a hospital. Investigators speculated that the fire could have been sparked accidentally, or it might have been deliberately set. But they largely ruled out any sort of attack by a

Palestinian group. The fire broke out around midday and quickly spread, fanned by unusually hot and dry conditions. Israel experienced an exceptionally warm summer and has had little rain during the normally wet autumn. Flames ripped through the Carmel forest in Israel’s Galilee region, eventually reaching the coastal city of Haifa after jumping from place to place in the forest. Netanyahu said the arrival of equipment from abroad today could be decisive, but crews could not resume work until daybreak. He called a special Cabinet meeting for this morning to assess the situation. After sundown, evacuation orders were issued for several communities, as well as a neighborhood of Haifa, Israel’s thirdlargest city, and a third prison. Haifa University, at the edge of the stricken Carmel nature preserve, was evacuated, too. Kibbutz Bet Oren, a collective village in the wooded area, burned to the ground after its residents were evacuated, witnesses said.

Congress OKs plan to address childhood hunger and nutrition The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — More children would eat lunches and dinners at school under legislation passed Thursday by the House and sent to the president, part of first lady Michelle Obama’s campaign to end childhood hunger and fight childhood obesity. The $4.5 billion bill approved by the House 264-157 would also try to cut down on greasy foods and extra calories by giving the government power to decide what kinds of foods may be sold in vending machines and lunch lines. The bill could even limit frequent school bake sales and fundraisers that give kids extra chances to eat brownies and pizza. The Senate passed the legislation in August. Republicans said the bill is too expensive and an example of government overreach. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has weighed in, bringing cookies to a speech at a Pennsylvania school last month and call-

Quick Read

ing efforts to limit junk food in schools a “nanny state run amok.” Democrats said the legislation is needed to stem rising health care costs due to expanding American waistlines and to feed hungry children in tough economic times.

USDA decisions The new nutrition standards would be written by the Agriculture Department, which would decide which kinds of foods may be sold and what ingredients can be used on school lunch lines and in vending machines. The new standards would likely keep popular foods like hamburgers and pizza in school cafeterias but make them healthier, using leaner meat or whole wheat crust, for example. Vending machines could be stocked with less candy and fewer high-calorie drinks. Bake sales and other schoolsponsored fundraisers that sell unhealthy foods could be limited under the legislation, which only allows them if they are infrequent.

The Agriculture Department would determine how often they could be held. Public health advocates pushed for the language, saying they are concerned about daily or weekly fundraisers that allow children to substitute junk food for a healthier meal. The bill would increase eligibility and accessibility for school lunches by using Medicaid and census data and provide money to serve more than 20 million additional after-school meals annually in all 50 states. Most states now only serve after-school snacks. The legislation would increase the amount of money schools are reimbursed for free lunches by 6 cents a meal, a priority for schools that say they don’t have enough money to serve the meals. Some public school organizations have criticized the bill, saying they are concerned it will set new requirements without providing enough money to carry them out.

Nation: Settlement found for boy kicked out of class

An elk hunter is recovering after spending four days and three nights stranded in a central Oregon forest with just a small bag of beef jerky to sustain him. KTVZ-TV reported that Alan Hewitt, 48, of Prineville, Ore., went elk hunting on horseback on Thanksgiving but was injured in a fall. He endured freezing temperatures in the Ochoco National Forest and survived on the beef jerky until two men found him Sunday. Darrel Hover of Bend and his father thought they saw a red backpack in the snow. It was Hewitt. They took him to a hospital in Bend.

An SUV crashed into an Anchorage, Alaska, barber shop, narrowly missing shop owner Heng Song and his two customers. Song was momentarily stunned when the vehicle burst through a door and window Wednesday afternoon as he was clipping a customer’s hair. But he soon returned to the chair and continued the haircut. There’s no way he would let a loyal customer go home with a botched job, Song said, laughing. On top of that, Song gave both customers haircuts on the house. He said it’s the least he could do after the ordeal.

A cashier at a drug store in Washington, D.C., is accused of stealing the mayor-elect’s wallet on Thanksgiving Day and using his credit card to buy cigarettes and liquor. According to court documents and surveillance video, Tamika Garris, 22, rang up Vincent Gray’s purchases and then picked up his wallet after he left it on the counter. Several hours later, she went to another register and used Gray’s credit card to buy cigarettes for $13, authorities said. Garris is accused of later going to a liquor store and forging the mayorelect’s signature for $25 in liquor.

The mother of a Florida child who was kicked out of his kindergarten class in 2008 after the teacher held a vote among fellow students about his disruptive behavior has reached a $350,000 settlement with St. Lucie County education officials. Federal court documents show the county school board and teachers union agreed to pay the settlement to Melissa Barton and her son, Alex. The settlement was reached Nov. 24 in Miami. A review by a third party designated to consider the best interests of the child is required before the agreement can be finalized in court.

On the boards, nailed together in a makeshift fashion, he scrawled that the fences would cost him $1,500, the glider swing another $500. He continued: “Your bumper left behind = Priceless.” When Thayer heard a clanging crash outside his window late Wednesday night, he found his yard looking as if it had fallen victim to a driver in “The Fast and the Furious.” A two-door older model sports car had driven

“We will continue to see more decreases in reimbursement,” Dowdle predicted. “We will be discussing” how to manage with less reimbursement, she said. “How can we be more efficient? How can we give patients services they need in a less expensive manner?” Health Care Authority spokesman Jim Stevenson said the agency already made $9.8 million in cuts after Gov. Chris Gregoire ordered across-the-board cuts in September. But those previous reductions hadn’t affected the clinic grants. The clinic cuts detailed Wednesday are part of Gregoire’s attempts to cover a deficit in the current state budget. Original grants to Peninsula agencies are: ■  OlyCAP — $81,049 for dental; nothing for medical. ■  Jefferson Healthcare — $39,424 for OlyCAP dental services in the Port Townsend area, $51,365 for medical, for a total of $90,789. ■  Clallam Bay Medical Clinic — $37,264 for dental, $30,690 for medical, for a total of $67,954. ■  Makah tribe — $46,875 for dental, $44,817 for medical, for a total of $91,692.

LAPUSH — A charity auction tonight will rake in the funds for gifts for needy children on the West End with the help of a “Twilight” saga movie star. Cherish Our Children will include a spaghetti dinner fundraiser, silent and live auctions with one silent auction table set up especially for children, photos with Santa and a crafts sale. The event will be at 5 p.m. today at the A-ka-lat Tribal Center in LaPush. “We have a little bit of everything — handmade items, native art, gift certificates, stays at resorts, a river trip, really everything,” said Sandy Heinrich, one of the organizers.

“That’s what we’re going to try to get across in this float,” she said. To help carry the inspiring message, the homeowners have invited local pastors and a representative of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula. Residents of the retirement center will make the baked goods. The silent auction will feature four opportunities: a scenic flight over Sequim, an “eating out package” worth $150, 30 minutes with a disc jockey on KSQM FM and carpet cleaning worth $150. Raffle items will include dog grooming, bakery baskets and floral arrangements. “We hope this will be a kickoff for the community to come together and support one another,” Strand said. “We can’t depend on the government anymore.

When donations are made, people receive tickets. Then, at the end of the night, the winning ticket gets half, and the rest goes to the fundraiser. “Last year, we made about $300 just on that,” Heinrich said. The event last year raised about $11,000, and organizers hope to raise at least $1,000 more this year, she said.

Clallam keeps tanklike vehicle on standby Never been used during crime, undersheriff says By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — It’s not exactly your typical county vehicle. Clallam County’s very own armored personnel carrier — the Peacekeeper — is still waiting to see its first action in an actual crime more than eight years after it was acquired. That’s a good thing, Clallam County Undersheriff Ron Peregrin said. “It’s better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it,” Peregrin said. It is the only such vehicle on the North Olympic Peninsula. Acquired at no cost to the county from a federal military surplus program in August 2002, the Peacekeeper is intended to protect law enforcement officers in high-risk situations.

Used for training It is used for training, Peregrin said, and is being stored at the Clallam County road shop in west Port Angeles. It would likely be deployed in a standoff situation in which deputies need to get close to a suspect to negotiate for a peaceful ending, Peregrin said. He compared the county’s ownership of the armored vehicle to having a fire extinguisher in your home. “It’s a hoot to drive, I can tell you that,” said Clallam County Chief Criminal Deputy Ron Cameron. The U.S. government

originally paid $65,000 for the personnel carrier, which was made by Cadillac in 1994. Before former Clallam County Sheriff Joe Hawe acquired the Peacekeeper, it was used at the Fort Lewis Army base south of Tacoma, now Joint Base LewisMcChord. “I remember early on it needed some work,” Cameron said. The vehicle is still being monitored by the federal government. Clallam County files annual reports about its use and could give it away only by returning it. On one occasion earlier this year, the Peacekeeper was staged outside the perimeter of a crime scene near Sequim. The standoff ended peacefully before the suspect even saw the 30,000pound tank-like vehicle. The Peacekeeper is not exactly comfortable to ride in, Cameron said. The roof is so low that people can bang their heads as they climb in. “It takes a small guy,” Cameron said. “It can carry several people into an event, and the driver actually sits with their head sticking out of a hatch to look out.” The large tires on the personnel carrier are made out of a special material that keeps them inflated when shot. Top speed for the Peacekeeper is about 45 mph. “There are minor maintenance costs associated with it, just to make sure it

Cameron added: “I remember when we acquired it, I was pretty tickled.” But others at the county aren’t so sure why it’s here.

‘I have no idea’ “We’ve gotten some good stuff [from military surplus] in the past, but this thing? I have no idea,” said Ross Tyler, county engineer. “It’s just a standing joke around here,” Tyler said.

Tyler quipped that the county should mount a snowplow to the Peacekeeper for storm response. Problem is that it gets about four miles to a gallon of gasoline.

Deputies train to rescue fallen comrades by taking cover behind the armored vehicle as it approaches a suspect.

‘No logical reason’

SWAT teams from Seattle brought two armored vehicles to Port Angeles in 2000 after Clallam County Sheriff ’s Deputy Wally Davis was shot and killed. One SWAT team had to stop for gas in Sequim. “It’s nice to have it avail________ able,” Cameron said. Reporter Rob Ollikainen can be As a tribute to Davis, the reached at 360-417-3537 or at rob.

“There is absolutely no logical reason for this county to own an armored personnel carrier,” Tyler said. Cameron said the Peacekeeper is primarily used by the Olympic Peninsula Narcotics Enforcement Team, or OPNET, which covers Clallam and Jefferson counties.

as the Peacekeeper’s identification number. The armored vehicle provides the “next level of protection of your people in critical instances” and can be used in a variety of applications, including hostage situations and evacuations, Jefferson County Sheriff Tony Hernandez said. “It would certainly be a nice piece of equipment to have,” Hernandez said. “Certainly, it is a soughtafter asset.”

State closes Forks driver’s license office Cites plumbing problems; landlord says problem OK By Paul Gottlieb

Peninsula Daily News

FORKS — Raw sewage seeped into the state Department of Licensing Office at 41 Bogachiel Way this week, prompting the closure of the facility, said Tony Sermonti, agency spokesman. Janet Marion, an owner of the building, said late Thursday afternoon that the problem was only a split in a line and that it had been fixed. But Sermonti said that the office may close permanently. Sermonti said the agency

Asked if the raw sewage was visible, Sermonti said, “There was staining, and according to folks who were reporting it, some of it was visible.” It’s “a heck of a problem, with essentially raw sewage” in the facility, he said. “Frankly, if that space even is habitable, once you get that sort of contamination, there are significant problems.”

“We’ll have an assessment done at 11, the office will remain closed [today], and we will go from there,” Sermonti said.

In November, the office issued 26 new driver’s licenses and about 50 driver’s license renewals, he said. The office does not issue vehicle or boat registrations. Mayor Bryon Monohon said he fears the state will shut down the Forks office for good as a result of the sewage problem. “They’ve made a concerted effort to shut it down for four or five years,”

Forks is 57 miles from the closest driver’s license office, which is in Port Angeles, Reed said. “It’s not like you can take a bus to PA to get your license,” she said. “That’s not how it works.” In its statement in January announcing reduced hours, DOL said drivers can “take care of most routine driver licensing transactions over the internet at or by mail.”

Laes to stay on as PT schools chief By Charlie Bermant Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — Gene Laes is no longer the interim Port Townsend School District superintendent. He’ll be back next year. He will continue in the post through the 2011-2012 school year under the same conditions as Laes when he was hired for the interim post in June. He will continue to earn $96,000 annually and work four days each week. “There are some things that need strengthening,” Laes said Thursday. “The district has positive aspects, but there is a lot of negative perception.’

Briefly . . . Injured man still in stable condition PORT ANGELES — Dennis Toepke, who was injured Monday when his mobile home slipped off a jack and fell on him, remained in satisfactory condition at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle on Thursday. Toepke, 64, of Port Angeles was trying to level his new 10-foot-by-40-foot coach at about 9 p.m. Monday when one of the leveling jacks slipped out of place. Rescuers brought inflatable bags that lifted the 10-foot-by-40-foot, 7-ton coach up, allowing the team to slide a board under Toepke and pull him free. Toepke suffered a shattered pelvis and elbow and a broken shoulder, Doug Hyatt, who is working on the mobile home for Toepke, said Tuesday.

NEW YORK — Some of the sickest patients can run up hospital charges as high as $18,000 a day, with average stays of almost three weeks, according to a new government report on the cost of hospital care. The report, from the

Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, used data from a nationwide sampling of patients in 2008 to analyze the 2 million most expensive stays (5 percent of the total) in short-term nonfederal hospitals. These patients were much more severely ill than others; the five most com-

shady — may be a good idea. Scientists studying sun safety took multiple readings of ultraviolet radiation at 32 high-altitude ski areas in western North America and interviewed thousands of skiers to find out whether they took precautions against the sun, like wearing hats, sunscreen and goggles, at appropriate times. Their conclusion was: only occasionally. “There were lots of findings, but the big takeaway is that people do not know when UV is high and do not take precautions,” said Peter A. Andersen, a professor of health communications at San Diego State University. “People took precautions not only when it was sunny, but when it was warmer, and that’s an erroneous calculation in people’s minds. “There is absolutely no correlation between temperature and UV radiation.” There can also be a lot of exposure to UV radiation on cloudy days, he said. Skiers in the Northern Hemisphere get the highest exposure at midday and during the late winter and early spring, as they get closer to the summer solstice, Andersen said. Exposure also increases with elevation. Readings were generally highest in high-altitude resorts in Arizona and New Mexico, but the highest UV rating — 10 UV index units — was taken at Mammoth Mountain in California. That rating is “just as intense as being smack-dab in the middle of the sun at Jones Beach in June,” Andersen said.

CHICAGO — Women who are stressed at work are more likely than other working women to have a heart attack or other forms of heart disease, a new study suggests. The findings, presented Nov. 15 at an American Heart Association meeting in Chicago, were based on data from 17,415 otherwise healthy middle-aged women who took part in the Women’s Health Study, sponsored by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. The researchers found that women who reported high job strain faced a 40 percent increase in cardiovascular disease overall and an 88 percent increase in risk for heart attacks alone. “Strain” was defined as demanding work with little decision-making authority or ability to use one’s creativity and skills. Women who worried about losing a job did not experience an increase in heart ailments, but they were more likely than women with high job security to be overweight or to have high blood pressure or high cholesterol, risk factors for heart disease. Earlier studies on chronic job stress and heart disease in women have had mixed results, though studies of mostly male subjects have found a clear association between the two, said the study’s senior author, Dr. Michelle A. Albert, a cardiologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston and an associate professor at Harvard Medical School. “You can’t get rid of stress, but you can manage it,” she said.

In the know doesn’t mean in the ‘no’ reversed tactics, and instead welcomed and examined every proposal, viewing each one as an opportunity for improvement? For example, after decades of rising concerns about air quality, the Port Townsend Paper Corp. mill and Nippon Paper Industries USA in Port Angeles each announced plans for major equipment upgrades to make more efficient use of the resources they consume. Port Townsend Paper is prepared to invest $55 million. Nippon is prepared to invest $71 million in Port Angeles. The very same environmental organizations that have demanded that the mills clean up their emissions greeted the news by preparing to wage battle, in court and out, to halt the projects. Could the hundreds of thousands of dollars, years of time and immeasurable human energy that is routinely burned in such contentious public processes and legal wrangling, be redirected to actually improve air quality? Imagine the difference if these groups dropped their opposition,

but not their concerns. Suppose they were to say, “Wow! Industry is willing to invest millions to upgrade these antiquated paper plants. That’s wonderful. We’ll work with them to maximize the environmental benefits of these projects.” Imagine the mill owners responding, “Thanks! We appreciate all the help you can give us. “Together, let’s figure out ways to resolve the concerns you have and make these expensive projects the best they can be.” The positive approach doesn’t require rubber-stamping anything. Rather, it means cooperating and collaborating as allies to make substantive improvements. In the field of education, if we quit wrangling over building use as we bemoan the sad state of a system that graduates a fraction of the young people who enroll, we might be able to actually address substantive changes.

Land use decisions also need a rescue from knee-jerk negativity, such as that displayed by folks who praise the state Growth Management Act, yet rail against every attempt in Clallam and Jefferson counties to comply with the Act, from denser in-city neighborhoods to sewer systems for Carlsborg and Port Hadlock. Regrettably, the proposals most likely to advance unopposed feel good rather than actually doing good. Examples include memorial highways, monuments, renaming government buildings and choosing state symbols, none of which deliver so much as a single aspirin to a hurting veteran or bring even one individual in from the cold. Every bill introduced in Congress or the Legislature burns cash, time, energy and political capital, all of which are in short supply.

Congress and political parties may view everything through the prism of the next election campaign, but that practice ill serves everyone — especially those who indulge in it. Far beyond partisan politics, negativity doses all elements of life with a bitter poison. No matter the public issue — be it education, health care, pollution, infrastructure or other — concerned citizens demand change, yet attack every change that is proposed. What if we universally

Let us know what’s on your mind LETTERS AND POINT of View guest columns from our readers are the most-valued part of our daily Commentary page. Letters are selected based on clarity of thought, familiarity with an issue and response to current events — especially local issues. ■  First priority goes to letters shorter than 250 words about local issues anywhere on the North Olympic Peninsula. The shorter the letter, the more likely it will be read — and the more likely it will be published sooner. Letters longer than 250 words are used — but only as space permits, and rarely if they exceed 300 words. All letters are subject to editing for clarity, taste and brevity. ■  We give preference to our critics. We look for letters that take issue with our news coverage. ■  We welcome and respect differences of opinion, alternate views and ideas and the discussion of community issues. But please don’t state hearsay as fact. We welcome and respect your opin-

ions — state them forcefully, clearly and concisely. But please list the sources for any facts or background information that you cite in your letter to back up those opinions. If you claim in your letter that Gov. Gregoire has added 10,000 new state employees, or that President Obama spent $43 million on a trip to the Mideast, tell us and your readers where you got this information. Better yet, send the verification along with your letter. When information stated as fact cannot be substantiated, we must regretfully pass on your letter. ■  Don’t submit the same letter to us and to the local weekly newspapers. Please, ride only one horse. We use only original letters — not letters published in other newspapers or copies of letters to third parties such as local or state officials or organizations. All letters are verified by our staff, usually by a short telephone call to the writer. We regret this interruption, but it’s essential that the letter be confirmed as coming from the writer.

Lame ducks in a world gone nuts Strange signs and portents abound in the land. In Brooklyn, N.Y., bees are turning red. The innoGail cent residents of Boca Raton, Collins Fla., are living in terror of an attack otter, which climbs out of the water to bite people in their backyards. And in Washington, D.C., the Senate passed a big bipartisan bill. Is it any wonder that people speak in trembling whispers of the end of days? Fortunately, things are not quite as apocalyptic as they seem at first glance. The bees, according to a column by Susan Dominus in The New York Times, had been hanging around a maraschino cherry factory. A wildlife expert told The South Florida Sun-Sentinel that people may have been feeding the otters, which makes them aggressive. And the bipartisan bill, which would overhaul the nation’s food safety system, still has to go back to the House, so there’s plenty of time to screw it up. Congress has been working on this legislation since 2008, when a big food-poisoning epidemic reminded everyone that the Food and Drug Administration is currently working with laws written during the Great Depression. It survived endless delays by Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, who believes the free market is your last, best defense against E. coli. But staff members for the leading Democratic and Republican senators on the health committee actually got together and worked things out the way they used to do in olden days. Most of the negotiators were

women, and while I am certainly not saying that made a difference, I am, sort of, just saying. Not everybody was impressed by the achievement. “Oh, my gosh! It’s so important,” said Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts, his voice dripping with sarcasm. “I’m glad I rushed back from our break to work on food safety.” Brown felt the Senate should have been focusing on economic issues, particularly his effort to stop the extension of unemployment compensation benefits until the Senate agrees to the Scott Brown Unemployment Compensation Funding Plan. “Is it because I’m a Republican that we’re not going to pass that? Is it because I’m the new guy?” he demanded. We will now have a moment of silence to contemplate the suffering of Sen. Brown. Who had to come back the week after Thanksgiving in order to vote on a major bipartisan bill aimed at keeping people from being poisoned by contaminated food. And then became a victim of discrimination. Congress is not exactly in a holiday mood. The Senate Democrats are frustrated because the Republicans won’t let them bring up any bills until they vote on extending the Bush tax cuts. On Wednesday night, Sen. Charles Schumer of New York proposed that everybody just compromise and extend the tax cuts for people with an income under a million dollars a year. “Will you accept?” he asked Lamar Alexander of Tennessee. “That’s a great compromise. Or are you going to say, ‘Oh, no. Hold out for the millionaires?’” Alexander is a particularly affable guy, as he demonstrated the other day when he got up and announced he was going to say “one good thing” about each of the 16 retiring senators. The whole world waited to see what he was going to do with Jim

Bunning of Kentucky, who has reset the bar when it comes to combining craziness and crankiness. Was Alexander going to find some way to make a warmhearted anecdote out of the time Bunning single-handedly held up an important administration confirmation because he was angry at Canada for banning the sale of flavored tobacco? No, as it turned out, Bunning “has been a persistent leader in fighting for sick nuclear workers who served our country during the ’50s and ’60s.” Who knew? Good work, Sen. Alexander. But that was a fleeting moment, foam of friendliness in a sea of rancor. Alexander quickly dodged Schumer’s offer, insisting that the Senate could actually do nothing whatsoever about taxes until it got results from the “great negotiations” that were begun by the White House. While it was extremely pleasant to hear Alexander finding a way to extol some unlovable outgoing senators, it was very unnerving to hear him sounding so confident about the White House’s willingness to negotiate away taxes on the rich. So the Senate Democrats are frustrated. And the Senate Republicans are unhappy, too, because the Democrats keep saying that the GOP cares more about “a tax cut for millionaires” than the middle class, the unemployed, gay soldiers, immigrant college students or stopping nuclear war. Maybe things will work out. Maybe the White House will not cave, and the Republicans will not be intransigent, and the Democrats will get their act together and be canny and unified. Maybe we should not rule out the possibility of zombie otters.

Amnesty for illegals a low priority Open-borders radicalism means never having to apologize for absurd self-contradiction. The way illegal-alien students on col- Michelle lege campuses Malkin across the country tell it, America is a cruel, selfish and racist nation that has never given them or their families a break. Yet despite their bottomless grievances, they’re not going anywhere. And despite their gripes about being forced “into the shadows,” they’ve been out in the open protesting at media-driven hunger strikes and flooding the airwaves demanding passage of the socalled DREAM Act. This bailout plan would benefit an estimated 2.1 million illegal aliens at an estimated cost of up to $20 billion. While votes on various DREAM Act proposals are imminent, the Congressional Budget Office has yet to release any official cost scoring. Viva transparency! To sow more confusion and obfuscate the debate, Democrats in the Senate have foisted four different versions of the bill on the legislative calendar, which all offer variations on the same amnesty theme: Because they arrived here through “no fault of their own,” illegal-alien children deserve federal education access and benefits, plus a conditional pass from deportation and a special path toward green cards and U.S. citizenship for themselves and unlimited relatives. In a last-ditch attempt to win over fence-sitters, DREAM Act sponsors have tinkered with eligibility requirements. But supporters know that the words on bill pages — which hardly anyone will read before voting — don’t matter. Built into the proposals are broad “public interest” waiver powers for the illegal immigration-friendly Department of Homeland Security secretary,

Janet Napolitano. University of Texas-San Antonio student Lucy Martinez embodies the entitlement mentality of the DREAM Act agitators: “We have done lobbying, legislative visits, marches, sit-ins. We are tired of it,” she complained to the San Antonio Express News. The illegal-alien student hunger strike “is similar to what we go through in our everyday lives — starving without a future.” But neither she nor her peers have been denied their elementary, secondary or college educations. Neither she nor her peers face arrest for defiantly announcing their illegal status. And for all the hysterical rhetoric about “starving,” the federal government and the federal immigration courts have been overly generous in providing wave after wave of de facto and de jure amnesties allowing tens of millions of illegal border-crossers, visa overstayers and deportation evaders from around the world to live, work and prosper here in subversion of our laws. Among the major acts of Congress providing mass pardons and citizenship benefits: ■  The 1986 Immigration and Reform Control Act blanket amnesty for an estimated 2.7 million illegal aliens. ■  1994: The “Section 245(i)” temporary rolling amnesty for 578,000 illegal aliens. ■  1997: Extension of the Section 245(i) amnesty. ■  1997: The Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act for nearly one million illegal aliens from Central America. ■  1998: The Haitian Refugee Immigration Fairness Act amnesty for 125,000 illegal aliens from Haiti. ■  2000: Extension of amnesty for some 400,000 illegal aliens who claimed eligibility under the 1986 act. ■  2000: The Legal Immigration Family Equity Act, which included a restoration of the rolling Section 245(i) amnesty for 900,000 illegal aliens. This is in addition to hundreds of “private relief bills” sponsored in Congress every year. Most recently, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., introduced legislation to stay the deportation

of illegal-alien DREAM Act activist Steve Li — whose family’s asylum claim was rejected and whom a federal immigration court judge ordered deported in 2004. These illegal-alien passes needn’t be approved by Congress for the recipients to gain benefits. Mere introduction of the bills buys the deportable aliens time that ordinary, law-abiding citizens can’t buy in our court system. The DREAM Act schemers pretend this isn’t a zero-sum game. But every time a private illegal alien relief bill passes, the number of available visas for that year is reduced by the number of illegal alien/deportable immigrant recipients granted legal status/deportation relief through the special legislation. In Austin, Texas, this week, one illegal-alien DREAM Act activist blithely argued to me that “it’s not like the government would be sending a message that breaking the law is OK.” Reality check: The number of illegal aliens in the U.S. has tripled since President Reagan signed the first amnesty in 1986. The total effect of the amnesties was even larger because relatives later joined amnesty recipients, and this number was multiplied by an unknown number of children born to amnesty recipients who then acquired automatic U.S. citizenship. At a time of nearly doubledigit unemployment and drastic higher education cutbacks, a $20 billion special education preference package for up to 2.1 million illegal aliens is not and should not be a priority in Washington. It certainly isn’t in the rest of America. And it certainly shouldn’t be a priority for federal immigration and homeland security officials, who have a 400,000 deportation fugitives problem, a three-year naturalization application backlog and borders that remain in chaos. Grown-ups need to tell the DREAM Act agitators to get in the back of the line.

Sequim beats Bainbridge 64-59 Wolves open boys basketball season with impressive victory Peninsula Daily News

BAINBRIDGE ISLAND — The Sequim boys basketball team (1-0) kicked off the season with a come-from-behind 64-59 nonleague win against Bainbridge (0-1) on Wednesday. “I just told the team to be patient,” Sequim basketball coach Greg Glasser said. “We made the extra pass in the second half and got more open looks.” Bainbridge scored 30 points in the second quarter after scoring only two in the first but had a 32-23 lead at the half. Glasser made a second-half switch by assigning Kenny Meier to the Spartans’ No. 1

scorer, Rico Failla, who had 17 points by halftime. Meier shut Failla down for the rest of the night. Nick Camporini led the Wolves with 17 points, scoring 11 in the third to help Sequim make a comeback.

Second-half surge The Wolves outscored the Spartans 19-10 in the third period to tie it up at 42-all. Sequim won it with a 22-17 advantage in the fourth quarter. Teammate Gabe Carter put up 13 points for the Wolves while Josh McMinn scored 11. “It was a big win for us,”

Steelhead time! Steelhead season continues to chug along out west. The notably finicky fish are swimming all over North Olympic Peninsula rivers. And other than a brief respite due to blown out rivers, anglers have had a good go at them during the past two weeks. “Elwha, Lyre, Bogachiel, Calawah . . . guys are even hitting Morse Creek,” Brian Menkal of Brian’s Sporting Goods and More (360-6831950) in Sequim said. Indeed, just about every traditional hatchery steelhead river in the area has produced a fish or two. That includes the Elwha, which gets a decent run of hatchery steelies in late November and early December, according to Bob Aunspach of Swain’s General Store (360452-2357) in Port Angeles. “It’s an early run that shows up there,” Aunspach said. “It shows up around Thanksgiving time, and it can have a pretty good early run in. “I had a guy who said he got one the other day and missed a couple. So they are there. “If the water is still actually fairly colored, it might be something to consider plunking.” That wouldn’t be necessary on the Lyre, of course. That Strait of Juan de Fuca drainer is small enough that it comes into shape pretty quickly after a lot of rainfall. The Bogachiel and Calawah should be in pretty good shape this weekend as well. Anglers might want to wait on the Sol Duc, however, according to Bob Gooding of Olympic Sporting Goods (360-374-6330) in Forks. “It’s in decent shape but traditionally, it’s about Christmas when it starts to turn on,” he said. “There’s a few fish around [the Duc], but there ain’t ever going to be a lot of them this time of year.” The Bogachiel Hatchery reported its first 72 returning adults of the season this week. There should be a lot more to come. “We’re still getting fish,” Gooding said. “For a few days there it slowed down. Monday night it poured rain down and it put all the rivers out. “Now we need another little push of rain to put some more fish in.”

Saltwater stuff Blackmouth season has been awfully quiet on the Peninsula. Still, there are salmon to be had in Marine Area 12 (Hood Canal) for those willing to cover some water. “There are plenty of blackmouth in Hood Canal, but they are scattered all over the place, so anglers are having to search for them,” said Ward Norden of Quilcene. “This make it a ‘trollers only’ show for the moment with Hotspot flashers or pearl white dodgers either trailed by green hornet or apple core colored squids.

That has changed as the “I don’t know if a team has improved more than us in the team placed more players than any other Pac-10 program on Pac-10.” During his first two seasons, the all-academic first team this the Cougars ranked at or very season.

Washington State head coach Paul Wulff said he isn’t concerned about his job status. At cash-strapped Washington State, the issue of firing a coach is complicated by money. Wulff is a former WSU offensive lineman who was very successful as head coach at nearby Eastern Washington.

Small-money market But his hiring was partially dictated by money, as his $600,000 salary was small by Pac-10 standards. Firing Wulff early would require paying off the final two years of his contract, plus hiring the sort of big-name coach who could draw fans back.

The upcoming expansion of the Pac-10, and a new deal to share television revenues, will add money to WSU’s coffers, but the money is not there yet. Tuel, who was recruited by Wulff, said players do not dwell on the criticism directed at their coach. “It’s not something we worry about,” Tuel said. “We are here to play football.” But Tuel said he is awed by Wulff’s ability to withstand criticism. “He’s fighting it strong and it’s impressive,” he said.

Undrafted LB Hawthorne makes impact with Hawks The Associated Press

RENTON — David Hawthorne knows of only one way to play football: with a hard-hat mentality that has made him a stalwart of the Seattle Seahawks defense. An undersized, undrafted free agent out of TCU, Hawthorne made the Seahawks in 2008 with a knack for bone-jarring hits in the preseason that earned him the nickname “The Heater” from his teammates. He played exclusively on special teams his rookie season before another impressive preseason earned him the backup middle linebacker role behind Lofa Tatupu. When Tatupu went down with a torn pectoral last year, Hawthorne stepped in to start 11 games for the Seahawks. In his first start, Hawthorne racked up 16 tackles, tied for third-most in team history.

First the Olympics, now World Cup. When it comes to landing sports’ biggest events, the United States can’t win. Still smarting from Chicago’s snub in the 2016 Olympics race last year, the U.S. was passed over for the 2022 World Cup on Thursday. While the U.S. had the best financial bid, according to FIFA’s analysis, and ready-built stadiums to host the tournament, the tiny desert nation of Qatar won 14-8 in the final round of secret voting by the executive committee of soccer’s governing body. “I don’t know that the sports community looks at the process for the 2016 Chicago bid as being carefully planned and well executed,” Major League Soccer Commissioner Don Garber said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press from the FIFA vote in Zurich. “I don’t believe that anyone would really look back at this process and believe that we did anything wrong. “It could just be there’s not enough support for bringing these kinds of events to our shores as there might have been decades ago,” he said. “Perhaps our market is developed enough — it doesn’t require these events. “But perhaps the reputation of our country is such that we’re not able to win the support of many other countries that are making these decisions that don’t believe we need or deserve these large international tournaments.” Russia will host the 2018 tournament, beating joint bids by Spain-Portugal and Belgium-Netherlands in a vote also announced Thursday. England, soccer’s motherland, received just two

votes and was knocked out in the first round. America fared slightly better, surviving until the final round as Australia, Japan and South Korea were eliminated. But the U.S. received just three votes in the opening round, likely the three from its own North and Central American and Caribbean region. “I think it’s a big setback,” said Walter Bahr, a member of the 1950 U.S. World Cup team that upset England. “Financially, I think it’s a big blow, and soccer-wise, it’s a tremendous blow.” But the defeat doesn’t carry quite the personal sting as Chicago’s humiliating loss to Rio de Janeiro in the bid for the 2016 Olympics. Or New York’s earlyround loss in the 2012 Olympic race, ultimately won by London. While Rio’s plea to bring the games to South America for the first time was compelling and may have been insurmountable, Chicago’s first-round loss also was a clear repudiation of the U.S. Olympic Committee. However, there was no apparent animosity toward the U.S. and its World Cup bid. U.S. Soccer Federation President Sunil Gulati, a key force in the progress American soccer has made over a quarter-century, has known every member of the executive committee for years. Because of the secret vote, he was never able to gauge support. “There was the possibility of some alliances. The numbers would seem to bare that out,” he said. “It’s politics. It’s friendships and relationships. It’s alliances. It’s tactics.” Still, the U.S. is now 0-for-3 in recent years when it comes to winning the world’s biggest games.

No. 5 Kansas State to test WSU Cougs

Top tackler He led the team with 116 tackles on the season and tied for the team lead with three interceptions. “From day one he’s had all the ingredients you expect out of a professional linebacker,” linebacker coach Ken Norton Jr. said. “He’s willing to do the hard things, having the discipline, doing extra study work. He’s really dedicated.” With the return of Tatupu and Leroy Hill forced to sit out many offseason workouts with legal issues and injuries, Hawthorne was moved to outside linebacker to increase his versatility. Hill was suspended for the season opener, making Hawthorne the starter at the weakside linebacker position. Hill returned in Week 2 just to get injured and end up on injured reserve. Hawthorne became the starter. He’s started 11 games and again leads the team in tackles with 65 on the year.

Seattle’s Marcus Trufant, left, and David Hawthorne tackle Kansas City’s Thomas Jones (20) in the second half of Sunday’s game in Seattle. “It’s just a testament of his ability,” Norton said. “It all wouldn’t make a difference if he couldn’t play. “We’d get somebody else in here, but he’s taken the challenge and he’s risen and done everything we’ve asked him to do.” Hawthorne was an exclusive rights free agent after the 2009 season. Since he had accrued just two seasons of service time in the league, Hawthorne was unable to become even a restricted free agent heading into an uncapped 2010 season.

The only team he was allowed to negotiate with was the Seahawks. Having played so well in 2009, there were rumblings that Hawthorne would hold out to seek a better deal. But he signed his oneyear tender worth $470,000 in base salary for the 2010 season and didn’t miss offseason practices or workouts. “The Seahawks talked to me and they promised me that in the middle of the year, once they made some moves and did some stuff, that they would come back

and talk to me and they did. They held true to their promise,” Hawthorne said. Hawthorne signed a oneyear extension over the weekend that increased his salary for the remaining games of the 2010 season and is set to pay him $900,000 in base salary in 2011. “It just shows hard work paying off,” Hawthorne said. “You always count your blessings when you see that. I’m the same guy. I’m a hard-hat kind of guy. I’m just glad to get rewarded.”

SPOKANE — Washington State is the only remaining undefeated team in the Pac-10 and boasts two of the league’s top three scorers in Klay Thompson and newcomer Faisal Aden. But the Cougars (5-0) have yet to face a top opponent. That changes today, when No. 5 Kansas State (6-1) comes to Pullman and gives the Cougars a chance to show if they are for real. The Wildcats’ only loss of the season is to No. 1 Duke. “We have not played an opponent like Kansas State this year,” WSU coach Ken Bone said. “I am anxious for Friday night to be able to gauge where we are as a team.” The Cougars were in much the same position last season when Kansas State built a big early lead to run away with an 86-69 victory. Jacob Pullen and Denis Cle-

mente did much of the damage for the Wildcats. Bone is counting on his returning players to remember that loss. “Last year we didn’t go in there and really compete,” Bone said. “At least we won’t be surprised in what’s coming Friday night.” Pullen leads Kansas State with 16 points a game. Rodney McGruder is adding 11 points and 6.6 rebounds. Pullen is a multiple threat, Bone said. “He can shoot it from the perimeter. He has a good mid-range game, and gets to the rim,” Bone said. “His assist to turnover ratio is impressive.” Washington State’s victories this season have come against Sacramento State, Southern, Idaho, Portland and Fresno State. Kansas State has also played a relatively modest schedule.

LeBron James dominates in Cleveland return The Associated Press

CLEVELAND — He tuned out the boos. He smiled at the derisive chants. He embraced all the negativity Cleveland could muster. LeBron James wasn’t fazed by anything. He brought his talents back home and reminded everyone — even the haters — why he’s missed. Returning as a villain to his native state and the city he scorned this summer, James scored 38 points — 24 in a virtuoso third-quarter performance — to lead the Miami Heat to a 118-90 win on Thursday night, turning his hostile homecoming into another embarrassing moment for the Cavaliers. By halftime, James was the one having fun. By the fourth quarter, he was watching from the bench as Cavs fans headed into the cold for a disappointing drive home.

This wasn’t the payback they waited five months to inflict. James simply wouldn’t allow it. As he did so many times during seven seasons for the Cavs, the two-time league MVP did anything he wanted on the floor. In the third quarter, he made 10-of-12 shots, jumpers from every angle and taunted Cleveland’s bench after draining a seemingly impossible baseline jumper. “I know this court. I’ve made a lot of shots on this court,” he said. “Just wanted to be aggressive, just try to keep them out of the game. I knew they were going to try to make a run in the third quarter, but we were able to get stops and we were able to get some shots.” With security guards forming a human barricade to line his entrance, James came hopping out of the tun-

nel and into the electrically charged atmosphere inside Quicken Loans Arena, as more than 20,000 fans, the same ones who once adored him, turned their fury on James. It was rowdy, but thankfully, not violent. There were a few minor incidents in the stands. Just in case, Moondog, the Cavs’ fuzzy mascot, wore a bulletproof vest. Booed every time he touched the ball, James scored 14 points in the first half as the Heat opened a 59-40 lead, and threatened to turn the highly anticipated game into a blowout. James quickly made certain of one. Miami outscored Cleveland 36-25 in the third to open a 95-65 lead, prompting Heat coach Erik Spoelstra to pull his superstar. James spent the final 12 minutes as a spectator, glancing at the scoreboard and into the

stands at so many familiar faces. James remained defiant afterward, saying he didn’t regret his decision to leave Cleveland. “I don’t want to apologize,” he said. “I think my intentions were not to hurt anyone. “My intentions were solely on kids during that whole process. I always say, decisions I make, I live with them. “There’s always ways you can correct them or ways you can do them better. At the end of the day, I live with them.

NCAA President Mark Emmert responded Thursday to the backlash that the governing body is allowing Cam Newton to play in the SEC championship game even though his father sought payment for his services. “We recognize that many people are outraged at the notion that a parent or anyone else could ‘shop around’ a student-athlete and there would possibly not be repercussions on the student-athlete’s eligibility,” Emmert said in a statement on the NCAA’s web site. Emmert added that he’s committed to “further clarifying and strengthening our recruiting and amateurism rules so they promote appropriate behavior by students, parents, coaches and third parties.” He also said the NCAA will “work aggressively with our members to amend our

bylaws so that this type of behavior is not a part of intercollegiate athletics.” The NCAA ruled Wednesday that the Heisman favorite was unaware of the payfor-play scheme concocted by his father, Cecil, and the owner of a scouting service. The NCAA declared Newton eligible to play for second-ranked Auburn Saturday against No. 18 South Carolina. Cecil Newton and Kenny Rogers — the former Mississippi State player who worked for an agent — sought money for the quarterback to play for the Bulldogs. George Lawson, the Newton family attorney, said Thursday that Cecil Newton cooperated with the NCAA. “Cam’s father participated in the investigation truthfully and honestly in terms of what he knew and what he didn’t know, regardless of the consequences,”

Five best bets for this week

NCAA president responds to backlash of Auburn’s Newton The Associated Press

Lawson told WSB-TV in Atlanta. As to whether any money changed hands, the attorney said: “Absolutely not.” Lawson added that he “would hope” the investigation is over. “But if it is not at an end, Cam and his family will continue to participate,” he said. Within the span of two days, the NCAA notified Auburn of violations of amateurism rules, the school declared Newton ineligible, and then the governing body reinstated him, clearing Newton to compete without conditions. The NCAA noted that reinstatement decisions are separate from the enforcement process and usually are “likely to conclude prior to the close of an investigation.” On its web site Thursday NCAA vice president of enforcement Julie Roe Lach

said her staff investigates all types of rules violations. “Some of these investigations affect student-athlete eligibility and others do not,” Lach explained. “The investigation does not stop with a student-athlete eligibility issue, but school officials must address it as soon as they are aware of the violations.” The NCAA also took issue with comparisons made to the case involving Reggie Bush at Southern California, which was heavily punished for extra benefits received by the Heisman Trophy winner from two aspiring sports marketers. The NCAA said “If a student-athlete does not receive tangible benefits, that is a different situation from a student-athlete or family member who receives cash, housing or other benefits or knowingly competes and is compensated as a professional athlete.”

SEATTLE — Erik Bedard and Josh Wilson are coming back to Seattle. Jose Lopez is on his way to Colorado. The Mariners brought back Bedard, their oftinjured left-hander with a one-year deal Thursday night. They also agreed to a 2011 contract with Wilson, a

utility infielder, avoiding salary arbitration. But the bigger move was the departure of Lopez, Seattle’s starting third baseman. Lopez was traded to Colorado for right-hander Chaz Roe. Seattle had turned down a $4.5 million option on Lopez, signed as a free agent in 2000.

Few tickets still available for PT tour

Families share holiday cheer during home tour By Julie McCormick

For Peninsula Daily News

PORT LUDLOW — Christmas cheer and sparkle help to brighten up the lengthening gray gloom of the season, say five families who will open their decorated homes to visitors Saturday. The Port Ludlow families will share their conviviality, their personally unique decor to celebrate the tradition and, in the process, help out a good cause. What could be more in keeping with the holiday spirit? The Port Ludlow Community Enrichment Alliance Holiday Home Tour will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The admission price of $15 in advance or $20 on the day of the event will support the Community Enrichment Alliance scholarship fund, which benefits Chimacum High School students. Scholarship candidates participate as volunteer hosts at each home.

Peninsula Weekend Rooms in Jan and Arn Ditmar’s home overlooking Twin Island in Ludlow Bay are scattered with artful arrangements of pears, a collecting favorite of Jan’s, and one tree near their staircase features pear ornaments. “Pears are my main thing,” Jan said, laughing. “I’m very fussy, and I don’t just want any kind of pear.” The Ditmars’ dining room is alit with a table set with sparkling crystal and china, just the way it will be on the big day. Other homes on the tour may feature nautical touches like the Drapers’, in keeping with the waterside setting at Port Ludlow, with each reflecting its owners’ personal style and experience. Turn

Catch meteor shower, lunar eclipse, Jupiter Starwatch

Peninsula Daily News news sources

December brings North Olympic Peninsula stargazers a sleighful of astronomical gifts — among them a lovely lunar eclipse, terrific views of Jupiter and an always reliable meteor shower. One of the best lunar eclipses in several years (at least for observers in North America) starts at around 10 p.m. Monday, Dec. 20, and ends at about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 21. During totality (11:41 p.m. Dec. 20 to 12:53 a.m. Dec. 21), the moon may appear brick red, cuprous orange or dull brown, depending on atmospheric conditions. Lunar eclipses are striking to the naked eye and riveting when viewed through a telescope, as the dark line of Earth’s shadow creeps across feature after feature on the Moon’s surface.

Meteors One of the strongest and most reliable annual meteor showers takes place in midDecember. Astronomers expect the peak of the Geminid meteor shower to occur at around 3 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 14. But you’re likely to see some Geminids any time after dusk on the 13th through dawn on the 14th. You may even spot a few on the evening of the 14th. The Geminids appear to radiate out of the constellation Gemini, which, in December, rises a couple of hours after sunset and is high in the westnorthwest before sunrise. From an urban backyard, you might see 30 to 60 meteors an hour. You’ll see far more if you

observe from a dark location, like the turnouts on the road to Hurricane Ridge. Because you don’t need any special equipment, viewing meteor showers can be a fun activity for friends and family. Dress warmly, make some hot chocolate, lie back on a blanket or reclining lawn chair and enjoy the show.

Planets Jupiter, always a terrific sight through a telescope, is particularly well-positioned for evening viewing throughout December. You can’t miss it — just look for the big, bright “star” just to the west of directly overhead after sunset. Its four largest moons are visible with binoculars, and even modest backyard telescopes will reveal several of Jupiter’s atmospheric bands, which appear as faint, parallel

rows of pink and cream. Jupiter sinks westward as evening deepens and sets almost due west after midnight. With a telescope, you should also be able to spot Uranus, which will be within 3 degrees of Jupiter this month. And if you’re up early on a clear morning this month, look for Venus — the startlingly bright “star” in the southeast before sunrise.

Solstice Winter officially arrives — for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere — at 3:38 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 21.

Spaceflight milestone The year 1968 was a rough one for America — the Tet offensive in January, the assassination of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. in April and of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy in June, and rioting outside the Demo-

cratic National Convention in Chicago in August. But Apollo 8 gave the nation a reason to rejoice when it slipped into lunar orbit on Christmas Eve. Astronauts Frank Borman, Jim Lovell and Bill Anders made 10 orbits of the moon and shot the iconic photo of the Earth rising over the lunar horizon. Their Christmas Eve reading from the book of Genesis was, at the time, the nation’s mostwatched TV broadcast. Commander Borman gave his audience goose bumps with his Benediction: “And from the crew of Apollo 8, we close with good night, good luck, a Merry Christmas and God bless all of you — all of you on the good Earth.”

Famed fiddler, guitarist to play at dance By Diane Urbani de la Paz

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — This month’s community contra dance — an event open to newcomers — features renowned fiddler Lisa Ornstein and guitarist Dan Compton playing music of French Canada and the Appalachians at the Black Diamond Community Hall on Saturday night. Ornstein, who’s played in Port Angeles before, “is maybe the best fiddler we’ve ever hosted,” said contra enthusiast Tom Shindler. “She recorded with La Bottine Souriante, perhaps the best-known Quebec

ensemble,” he added. “Three years ago, she moved to Portland [Ore.] and has been doing small West Coast tours, and we have been lucky enough to snag her for yet another dance.” The evening starts as always with a 7:30 p.m. workshop for beginning contra dancers. Then, Ornstein and Compton, known for their energetic fiddle-toguitar dialogue, will play at 8 p.m. Admission is a suggested donation of $6 for adults and $2 for children, and the Black Diamond hall is at 1942 Black Diamond Road, about 2 miles south from

Pine Street. For more details about Port Angeles’ monthly contra dances, phone 360-4575667. On Sunday, Ornstein and Compton will both give workshops at the Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend, the first of which starts at 11:45 a.m. After the workshops, the pair will play a concert in the fort chapel at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 or $10 for workshop participants.

I would like to introduce you to Dustin. He prepares the salad bar and bakes bread early in the morning for the Bushwhacker. Dustin keeps a lot of people happy yet people don’t get to meet him. Dustin walks to work, which I find commendable. He is meticulous and thorough which we want with so much fresh and perishable food. He hand cuts all the fresh greens, prepares the dressings, makes the clam chowder, heats it slowly for lunch. Dustin puts stock away. Always rotating. Lots of responsibility. Dustin is a model of consistency. Thank you Mr. D. from Bob G. and the rest of the crew!

A BLANKET OF white snow covers the trees and ground in my front yard. It is beautiful but hardly peaceful, for it has become a battleground between me and the European starlings that hog my birdfeeders. In the midst of a Currier and Ives snowy scene, I have leaned out my window and screamed like a banshee. I confess that I have entertained murderous thoughts with regards to those large, pushy birds. Forget about world peace. I struggle to be at peace with the feathered “friends” in my yard. Peace is a very short, easy word to say but rather difficult to find in our world although we significantly value it. We deeply yearn for security and order, quiet and tranquility, harmony and accord. The prophet Isaiah touched on this universal desire when he wrote, “The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shined . . . “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government will be upon his shoulder and his name will be called ‘Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.’ “Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end.” (Isaiah 9:2, 6-7) Christians see Jesus as the fulfillment of Isaiah’s prophecy. The Gospel of Luke says that a multitude of angels praised God at the birth of Jesus. They exclaimed, “Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace, good will among men.” (Luke 2:14) (Fortunately, they said men and not starlings!) To better understand the nature of this peace we desire, I referred to my dictionary. There, I found that the word “peace” is related to the Latin pacisci, which means to agree. Peace, then, is agreement. It occurs when we

Issues of faith Barbara

come together in “yes.” It seems, though, that most of our world and personal experience are filled with “no.” We are focused on our differences of opinion, inequities and disagreements. Within our own selves, we are often divided between our head and our heart. However, we can only enjoy peace when we seek agreement. So, to what can we all say, “Yes”? In the deep darkness of winter, we say yes to the light that guides us. In the bitter cold, we say yes to the love that warms us. In the dead of winter, we say yes to life. We all say yes to light, love and life. I believe what ultimately makes this season holy are these deeply held, enduring values to which all creation pays homage. Those values are what unite us regardless of our particular celebration whether we call it Christmas, Hanukkah or Kwanzaa. Light, love and life are those universal values that I share in common not only with my family and friends but with complete strangers and people of different race, religion and politics. I share these values with those on the other side of the world. And I even share them with the starlings! As I focus on light, love and life, I will find a way to support the starlings as well as my other feathered friends. And as a result, in my front yard, I will bring “peace on earth” a little closer to home.

Shoppers ring in season for retailers in November By Anne D’Innocenzio The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Shoppers had retailers’ registers ringing in November, getting the holiday season off to a roaring start. Retailers on Thursday reported revenue figures that topped expectations and showed the second-biggest monthly percentage gain in four years, according to one measure. And the reports raise hopes spending might remain strong for the rest of the holiday season and help the economy recover. But it’s still early in the holiday game, and 40 percent of sales typically come

in the last 10 days before Christmas. Analysts expect stores will need to keep up the deep but well-planned discounts. The hangover from the Great Recession hasn’t gone away. Shoppers are still hungry for deals and sticking to a budget.

Beats expectations The International Council of Shopping Centers’ index showed a 5.8 percent gain in revenue at stores open at least a year for November, much better than the 3 percent to 4 percent increase expected.

The increase was the biggest since March, when spending tied to an early Easter resulted in a 9 percent gain. Otherwise, it was the biggest gain in September 2006, when it registered 6.2 percent increase. Revenue at stores open at least a year is a key indicator of a retailer’s health because it excludes sales at stores that open or close during the year. “Discretionary spending looks to be making a comeback,� said Ken Perkins, president of RetailMetrics, a research firm. The retail gains were broad-based, showing that many types of shoppers

were in the mood to buy, if the product and price were right. Stores reporting gains that topped Wall Street expectations included Costco Wholesale Corp., Target Corp., Victoria’s Secret and pricey teen retailer Abercrombie & Fitch. Midpriced department stores including Macy’s Inc. were the biggest winners because they plied shoppers with early-morning discounts on Thanksgiving weekend. Luxury shoppers delivered solid gains to Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus, though business fell short at Saks.

WSU gets $26 million from dropout Paul Allen

The Associated Press

The Associated Press

SEATTLE — The Army is still refusing to release the results of its investigation into spying on anti-war activists by a civilian intelligence specialist at Joint Base Lewis-McChord south of Seattle. Officials released more than 100 pages of records this week to The Associated Press in response to a Freedom of Information Act request, most with names redacted. The Army withheld the results and recommendations made by an investigating officer, citing law enforcement and privacy exemptions. Col. John Wells of the Army’s Litigation Division noted an ongoing federal civil rights lawsuit brought by the activists and the possibility of criminal charges against Army employees — and said release of the documents could impair the rights of those involved to fair trials or disciplinary proceedings. The documents outline the scope of the inquiry, which was initially completed in mid-2009 and then reopened early this year to determine whether military legal advisers were given complete and accurate information about the protest group’s infiltration. Anti-war activists with a group called Olympia Port Militarization Resistance discovered in early 2009 that the administrator of their e-mail listserve, whom they knew as John Jacob, was actually John Jacob Towery, then an employee of the Force Protection Division at Lewis-McChord. The Force Protection Division includes civilian and military workers who support law enforcement and security operations to ensure the security of Fort Lewis personnel. The Reconstructionera Posse Comitatus Act prohibits the Army from directly engaging in domestic law enforcement.

PULLMAN — Washington State University is getting a $26 million donation from its richest dropout, Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, the school said Thursday. The gift for the university’s School for Global Animal Health was approved by the university’s Board of Regents on Thursday morning. Events were held around the state later in the day to formally announce Allen’s gift and use it to kick off a $1 billion fundraising campaign, the largest in the university’s history. Allen’s gift will be the largest private grant the land-grant university in Pullman has received in its 120 years. It’s $1 million more than Allen’s old friend and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates gave through his charitable foundation in 2008 to build the School for Global Animal Health, which studies diseases that move from animals to humans. “This particular gift — because it’s focused on animal health and the Third World and Africa, which I’ve grown really to care about and have spent time in Africa — really resonated with me,� Allen said in an

Key WaMu report excluded The Associated Press

WILMINGTON, Del. — The judge in Washington Mutual Inc.’s bankruptcy case began a hearing Thursday by excluding an examiner’s report that concludes that a proposed legal settlement with the bank holding company JPMorgan Chase & Co. and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. is reasonable. The report is the basis for WaMu’s reorganization plan. Shareholders who oppose WaMu’s plan requested the appointment of the independent examiner earlier this year, complaining that they had been stymied in

their efforts to obtain information about the proposed settlement. But attorneys for the shareholders argued Thursday that the report should not be admitted as evidence. WaMu’s reorganization plan is based on the proposed settlement of lawsuits that WaMu, JPMorgan and the FDIC filed against one another after the collapse of Seattle-based Washington

OLYMPIA — Higher taxes on candy, gum, bottled water and pop have ended. Voter-approved Initiative 1107 repealed those tax increases, which had been passed by the Legislature earlier this year. The state Department of Revenue notified retailers that the last day to collect the higher taxes on candy, gum and bottled water was Wednesday. Also, bottlers are now no longer paying an excise tax on carbonated drinks. But the sales tax on carbonated drinks remains in place.

Boyfriend’s father doesn’t ‘fit in’ DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend’s father is very odd socially. If there is a line, he will unknowingly cross it. He has no sense of what is appropriate when it comes to personal space, and his only friends are teenagers. His wife and two grown children are constantly upset with his bizarre behavior but dare not bring it up with him for fear of hurting his feelings. As a health care worker, I suspect he has Asperger’s syndrome, for which behavioral treatment is available. Must I “just ignore” this man’s odd conduct as well? Or should I speak with my boyfriend about my suspicions in order to get his father help? New Doctor in New England

For Better or For Worse


Dear New Doctor: Of course you should discuss this with your boyfriend. To do so would be a kindness. Whether his father is open to therapy is not assured — but if he’s intelligent, he must be aware that he doesn’t fit in with his contemporaries, and he may accept help if it is offered.

Frank & Ernest

Dear Abby: As we head toward Christmas, would you remind people to please treat others as they, themselves, would want to be treated? I work in retail, and it’s amazing how many customers are rude. They don’t acknowledge us, they’ll talk on their cell phone throughout transactions and become angry at us if something beyond our control goes wrong. If we were to treat them this way, they would surely file a complaint against us. Abby, can you remind folks to remember what the reason for the season is and to act toward others with kindness, patience and respect — no matter what? Mindful in Fairbanks



Dear Mindful: There is something about Christmas that can

dear abby turn the most angelic individuals Van Buren into gremlins. And that “something” is the pressure to buy, buy, buy — accumulating debt that can’t be repaid for months or even longer. Add to that no place to park and long lines in understaffed malls, and the “joy” of the season can curdle into frustration. But readers, please hang onto your tempers even if those around you are losing theirs. The folks behind the counters are people, too, and they feel as pressured, if not more so, than you.


Dear Abby: My wife and I have been married 40 years. Five years ago, she told me she didn’t want me in our bedroom and that she is “off limits.” She said she is not interested in me “that way” anymore. Other than that, we have a great marriage, and we’re best friends, but I can’t go on like this. I have suggested counseling, but she refuses to go. What do you think I should do? Missing the Kissing Dear Missing: I think you should talk to a counselor without her. You have some important decisions to make about how you will spend the rest of your life, and it’s a shame your wife does not want to be a part of the discussion and, possibly, reach a compromise. But unless both of you are happy being roommates, the current situation is unfair to you.

PROPONENT:

Clallam County Board of Commissioners 223 East 4th Street, Suite 4 Port Angeles, WA 98362-3015 Telephone: 360.417.2233

FORMAL IDENTIFICATION: 2010 Rezone (Res. 88, 2008 Follow-up) DESCRIPTIVE TITLE: Type C Clallam County Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Map Amendment. SUMMARY OF PROPOSAL: The proposed action is a Type C rezone to amend the Clallam County Comprehensive Plan Land Use Designation Map and Zoning Map rezoning 505 parcels, totaling 2,657 acres, from Rural Low (R5) (CCC 33.10.020) or Western Region Rural Low (RW5) (CCC 33.10.025) to Rural Neighborhood Conservation (NC) (CCC 33.10.015). R5, RW5, and NC are all rural residential zoning districts. Under the R5/RW5 zoning designation, the base residential density is 1 du per 4.8 acres. Under the NC zoning designation, the base residential density is 1 du per 5 acres, but may be increased to, at most, 1 du per 2.4 acres, under either the optional clustering technique (for properties larger than 11 acres) or the optional overlay-infill technique (for properties smaller than 11 acres), if all other criteria set forth in CCC 33.10.015 are met. All the parcels proposed for rezoning to NC were zoned at more intensive rural zoning designations (with base residential densities of at least 1 du per 1 acre) from 1995 until 2008, at which time they were down-zoned to R5/RW5 as a result of GMA compliance orders that found that these particular parcels did not qualify for LAMIRD designation. The resolution (Res. 88, 2008) accompanying the ordinance (835) down-zoning these excluded LAMIRD parcels called for a future review of these parcels, for potential rezoning to any new compliant rural zoning designation that might be devised for the invalidated Rural Moderate (R2/RW2) zoned areas (with a base residential density of 1 du per 2.4 acres). The zoning designation that was devised for the invalidated R2/RW2 zoned areas is the NC zone (Ord. 852). This zone was determined to be GMA compliant by the WWGMHB, and became effective on or about February 19, 2010. Of the 600 parcels (2,885 acres) that qualified for review under Res. 88, 2008, 505 parcels (2,657 acres) are being proposed for rezoning to NC.

Paradise Theatre to stage one-man show, ‘Jalopies’ Peninsula Spotlight

CHIMACUM — “Jalopies,” a one-man show about the residents of a retirement home, opens at the Paradise Theatre School this Thursday night, bringing to the stage another work by a local playwright. Mark Cherniack is the writer and solo performer in “Jalopies,” which explores how the retirees cope with the manipulations and deceptions of the corporate manager who runs their facility. “The residents’ struggle to regain and maintain their rights in the face of bottomline steamrolling forms the heart of this spirited, humorous and often poi-

gnant show,” said Pattie Miles Van Beuzekom, co-artistic director of the Paradise Theatre School. Cherniak “All the while,” she added, “they have to deal with the vagaries and confusion of aging as well as their ongoing contentions with each other.” Cherniack spent 25 years working in retirement homes and wanted to give the people there a voice, Miles Van Beuzekom said. He originally wrote “Jalopies” as a full-length production. But to keep things simple, Cherniack

auditioned it himself before Miles Van Beuzekom and her husband Erik, co-artistic director of the Paradise. They were so pleased with the play and his rendition they told him, “We want you to do it,” solo. Cherniack is simply “a great actor,” Miles Van Beuzekom said. “Jalopies” is on stage at 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays through Dec. 18 and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 12 and Dec. 19. Thursdays

Chinese propaganda posters focus of show Victoria gallery to exhibit work until Feb. 6 By Diane Urbani de la Paz

Peninsula Spotlight

VICTORIA — The “Communist Paradise,” where the people of China are glowing with happiness and health, is the subject of a new exhibition at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, thanks to a pair of former exchange students. Barry Till, the gallery’s Asian Arts curator, and Richard King, a Pacific and Asian studies professor at the University of Victoria, have mounted a display of the propaganda posters they collected while study-

ing in China during the late 1970s. These posters picture a Communist ideal, where everybody works together in harmony and productivity, for the good of all.

Posters’ message

Old Evils: old ideas, old culture, old customs and old habits. More than 70 posters constitute the show, which stays up through Feb. 6. With the formation of the People’s Republic of China in 1949, Mao Zedong and the Communist Party used posters as the primary source of communication to a largely illiterate audience in pre-television China, Till noted.

In “Commune’s Fishpond,” for example, Till said the message is about how successful the communists are in producing an abundance of fish through hard work and extensive Mao inspiration experimentation. Chairman Mao used The posters also show how the Chinese people are these posters, he added, to inspire people to lead united against the Four

The Gallery at the Fifth invites you to the opening reception for the artworks of

unselfish lives in the service of the Communist Party, the community and the country. At 1 p.m this Wednesday, Till will lead a curator’s tour of the exhibit. And on Thursday at 7:30 p.m., King will give a talk on the exhibition titled “Picturing the World As It Should Have Been.”

PORT TOWNSEND — “The Eight: Reindeer Monologues” is a comedy starring Santa’s tiny reindeer, but it is not for little girls and boys. Bring your grownup sense of humor to this one, advises Denise Winter. She plays Dancer, one of the eight sassy creatures delivering the tart monologues in “The Eight,” opening this Wednesday night at the Key City Playhouse, 419 Washington St., in downtown Port Townsend.


The show is an irreverent take on sexual harassment in the workplace — and the workplace is the North Pole, where brown fur and innuendoes fly among the fabled deer:

Comet, Cupid, Donner, Dancer, Dasher, Blitzen, Vixen — and Hollywood, Prancer’s replacement for the play’s purposes. “It’s definitely a dark comedy . . . with a little bit of a jab at political correctness,” said Winter, who besides being Dancer is Key City Public Theatre’s artistic director.

Play detective As “The Eight” unfolds, the playgoer also gets to play detective, Winter added. “There’s a little bit of truth and a little bit of lying in everybody’s story,” she said of the reindeer. The monologues are racy, meaty and loaded with wicked humor, she added. “I think it will have broad appeal, to every age range,” except one. “Don’t bring children. This is not — bold, underlined not —

for children.” “The Eight” takes the stage at 7 this Wednesday evening and runs Thursdays through Sundays through Dec. 19; a 2:30 p.m. matinee is also slated on the 19th. Tickets are $18 on Friday and Saturday nights, $15 on Sundays and Thursdays, and $10 for students at all shows except this coming Thursday, Dec. 9, which is a pay-what-youwish performance. Key City Public Theatre is also presenting two other holiday shows: “The Little Match Girl” through Dec. 12 and Charles Dickens’ “Seven Poor Travellers” Dec. 14 through 22.

This free performance, titled “The Wizard of Oz Unplugged,” will unfold at Old City Hall on the corner of Water and Madison streets, at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. It features episodes from L. Frank Baum’s original books about “the Wonderful Wizard of Oz” — including scenes missing from the 1939 Judy Garland movie. The Wizard, for example, takes forms other than a giant head, and the Flying Monkeys end up helping Dorothy. Also Saturday, a new art group, Peninsula Palettes, joins the Gallery

Walk. Nine painters will show their work in the YMCA Multipurpose Room in the former Mountain View Elementary School, 1919 Blaine St. The participating artists include Miriam Lansdon, Joan Cole, Laurie Perrett, Roxanne Decker, Barb Diltz Chandler, Tony Matsumoto, Kate O’Donnell, Cathy Graczyk and Lisa Stoutmoose. Visitors to the YMCA can also tour the art rooms, nibble on snacks, watch students in Holly Green’s ongoing pottery classes demonstrate slab and coil techniques, and find out how to join Green’s workshops. Other stops on Saturday evening’s walk include: ■  The Port Townsend Gallery, 715 Water St., with Maoriinspired bone carvings and new photographs of local scenes by Victor Judd, plus abstract paintings by Susan Hazard. ■  The Jefferson County Historical Museum, 540 Water St., with photos of Jumbo, Horace McCurdy’s dog and constant companion during his boyhood in the early 20th century. Jumbo is seen attending tea parties, pulling wagons and playing on the beach.

Wine on the Waterfront, aka WOW, is about to host “WOWStock 2: The Empire Strikes Back,” the second annual dance party-fundraiser for the Port Angeles Food Bank, to get under way at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the wine bar in The Landing mall, 115 E.

Party of good cheer to benefit arts festival By Diane Urbani de la Paz

Peninsula Spotlight

The Juan de Fuca Festival Christmas Band — Sarah Tucker, left, Dee Dee Gonzalez, Dan Maguire and Eric Neurath — plan to fill Bar N9ne with holiday cheer this Saturday night.

PORT ANGELES — A pack of local musicians is preparing to stir up Christmas cheer, festive appetizers and eggnogs of various kinds into the first Juan de Fuca Festival Christmas Party at Bar N9ne, 229 W. First St., this Saturday night. Admission is $15 at the door, and proceeds will benefit the Juan de Fuca Festival of the Arts, Port Angeles’ annual celebration of music, dance, food and visual art. The festival, as North Olympic Peninsula music lovers know, is a spring-

time cavalcade of sounds from around the world. It’s held every Memorial Day weekend and draws singers, players, dancers and fans to dozens of performances indoors and outdoors. So what does a Christmas party have to do with it?

Banish the blues Dan Maguire, the new executive director of the Juan de Fuca Festival, is a seasoned music maker himself, and he thought it would be fun to banish wintertime blues with an evening of song and camaraderie. And, Maguire said, the

Juan de Fuca Festival, which also presents concerts and school programs in addition to the Memorial Day event, needs support year round. Just last month, Juan de Fuca brought Okaidja Afroso and Shokoto, a Ghanaian music and dance ensemble, and folk singer Hank Cramer to Port Angeles. Ticket sales only cover 40 percent of the cost of these concerts and of the May festival, Maguire noted. He’s recruited a small flock of popular rock, blues, folk and bluegrass players from around the north Peninsula to join him for a night of merriment.

Fun evening



At Chimacum High School $3 Admission Get $1 off with this coupon or an item for the food drive!

“This will be a really fun evening. If you’re looking to get some of that great Christmas spirit, this is where you’ll want to be,” Maguire said. The scene “will prove to be a stunning rebuke to Narnia’s White Witch who tried to make it ‘always winter but never Christmas,’” he added, referring to the witch in C.S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia, which have been made into a movie to be released this month. The Christmas Party benefit “supports a very special organization that, through its performing arts festival and other programs for youth and others, clearly makes our community a better and more magical place to live,” Maguire said.

New asphalt is relatively smooth but time and wear exaggerates the coarse texture of the road’s surface causing your tires to absorb most of the impact. Siping gives your tires a Micro-Flexibility reducing the wear on your tire’s carcass and sidewalls. This effect not only increases tire life, but will result in a smoother ride.

Siping will not adversely affect your tires performance in any way. The tread on your tires retains all of its strength due to the patented spiral cutting process. This process leaves uncut areas known as tie bars keeping your tread strong.



There are many important parts that wear out in your brake system. This is why we don’t just replace your brake pads and shoes. It’s also why we can stand behind our brake service with the best brake warranty (Free Replacement 25,000 Miles – Parts & Labor).



WE REPLACE Secondary y Shoe



A quality light truck/SUV tire that provides outstanding traction during harsh weather conditions.

The tread surface on your tire is made up of many smaller surfaces known as “Tread Blocks.” The reason for so many surfaces is especially important when it comes to icy or wet road conditions. The “Tread Blocks” get their gripping power not from their many smooth surfaces, but from the even more numerous sharp surrounding edges. Siping provides more of these gripping edges.

Research has shown that the most effective braking power occurs immediately prior to losing traction. Siping extends the window allowed for maximum braking power by giving the existing tread a helping hand. In the examples above, notice how the siped tire has dozens more grippin g edges.

Low cost tire with a high traction tread compound for added durability and tread life.
