Crews clear away part of a large mudslide on state Highway 112 between Sekiu and Neah Bay on Saturday.
State crews partially reopen vital links to Neah Bay, southern Hood Canal By Leah Leach

Workers chipped out access Saturday around a massive mud slide on state Highway 112 that isolated Neah Bay and cleared another slide on the opposite side of the Olympic Peninsula that had fully blocked U.S. Highway 101 near Hoodsport. By dusk Saturday, one lane for alternating traffic was open on 112, said Don Clotfelter, Olympic Region maintenance manager for the state Department of Transportation. State workers excavated from the east side of the slide while Makah tribal members used their equipment on the west side to clear the road at Rasmussen Creek, which was buried at 6 p.m. Friday in some 3,000 to 4,000 cubic yards of mud, boulders and trees. “It’s one of the bigger ones we’ve had in a number of years,” Clotfelter said, adding that “along that corridor histori-
cally are landslides.” The slide made going home again an adventure for many. That included a horde of high school basketball fans who watched their boys and girls varsity teams beat their archrivals in Clallam Bay before learning that the only paved highway access into Neah Bay was completely blocked. Bruch and Bruch of Port Angeles will finish clearing the job, beginning Sunday and working through the holiday weekend to cart off between 300 and 400 truck loads of soil, Clotfelter said.
Highway 101 All lanes of Highway 101 near Lake Cushman Road — state Highway 119 — in Mason County were cleared by 4:35 p.m. Saturday after a mud slide blocked both lanes at 11:35 a.m. Friday. Highway 101 is the only road linking communities on the western shore of Hood Canal.
Crews were later able to clear one lane through the 100-yard-wide slide area on Friday. The slides were the latest in a series that have plagued Western Washington for the last two weeks of storms. A mudslide Thursday along the main railroad line near Everett prompted a suspension of passenger rail service between Seattle and Vancouver, B.C., until Saturday.
Landslide warning in effect And a mudslide in Sumner will keep the West Valley Highway closed through at least Tuesday morning, officials said. With more rain forecast to fall on already sodden ground, the National Weather Service has issued a landslide warning in effect through Monday for much of the North Olympic Peninsula. Turn
Clallam County is legally bound to pay Commissioner Steve Tharinger while he serves in the state Legislature as the newest member of the 24th District delegation representing the North Olympic Peninsula. So Tharinger said he will give some of the money back. Before the November general election, Tharinger said that he would not take a paycheck from the county when the Legislature is in session if he were elected. Tharinger The Sequim Democrat made the statement amid heavy criticism from his three election opponents that he would be “double dipping” by taking two public salaries if voters chose him to fill the seat vacated by former Rep. Lynn Kessler. But that’s not possible, Tharinger said after he was sworn in last week to the state position, which pays $42,106 a year. The county pay is $63,504 annually, for a total of $105,610. Clallam County Administrator Jim Jones confirmed that to be the case. Changing Tharinger’s pay would require a vote by the Board of County Commissioners, Jones said, and such a change would not go into effect until his next term. But Jones said Tharinger can give back as much of his pay as he wants to the county, in the form of a tax-deductible donation. Rather than simply not taking a paycheck from the county during the 105-day legislative session, Tharinger said he will give the county back some of his pay if he works less than 40 hours a week on county issues.

Gregoire ferry district idea stalls at launch Peninsula Daily News and Kitsap Sun
OLYMPIA — Gov. Chris Gregoire’s proposal to create a ninecounty ferry district — which would include both Clallam and Jefferson counties — has apparently fizzled. The governor’s representatives briefed the House Transportation Committee on Thursday on a proposal to replace Washington State Ferries with a semi-independent regional authority.
Transportation Committee Chairwoman Rep. Judy Clibborn, D-Mercer Island, said the plan seemed to lack support among committee members. “I don’t hear consensus to go forward with the plan as it is. I don’t feel it has the votes,” Clibborn said. “The hard work now is to figure how to make the service run mean and lean.”

ZSA ZSA GABOR’S husband said the actress is smiling and talking, a day after doctors amputated most of her right leg. Frederic Prinz von Anhalt said Saturday that Gabor is heavily sedated and Gabor does not yet know that her leg has been removed. He said he’ll tell her when she regains more of her strength. Doctors at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles decided to amputate Friday when a persistent infection wouldn’t heal. Von Anhalt said the 93-year-old “Moulin Rouge” and “Queen of Outer Space” star will likely spend up to four weeks in the hospital. Gabor broke her hip and

He said that “Kayte’s my new girl” and that they’re getting married “in February, we think.” His wife of nearly 13 years, Camille Grammer, filed for divorce in July. She cited irreconcilable differences. She stars in Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” They were married in 1997 and have two young children.

She initially called police to ask for a ride to the hospital but realized her driver was waiting to drive her from her home in the suburbs to New York City for a “Today” show appearance. Stewart landed in the Northern Westchester Hospital emergency room and received stitches in her upper lip.

John Dye, 47, an actor whose career included the role of Andrew, the angel of death, in the long-running television series “Touched by an Angel,” was found dead at his San Francisco home, a medical examiner’s spokesman said Thursday. Medical examiner’s investigator Charles Cecil said Mr. Dye, a native of Amory, Miss., was Mr. Dye found dead Monday.

As news of Mr. Dye’s death began to spread Thursday afternoon, his “Touched by an Angel” costar Valerie Bertinelli posted a message to him on her Twitter account: “Dear, sweet John Dye, rest in peace.” A University of Memphis theater major, Mr. Dye’s early work included the martial-arts movie “The Best of the Best” and small roles on “Murder, She Wrote” and other television shows.

Briefly: Nation U.S. debt surges to all-time high of $14 trillion WASHINGTON — The United States just passed a dubious milestone: Government debt surged to an all-time high, topping $14 trillion — $45,300 for each and everyone in the country. That means Congress soon will have to lift the legal debt limit to give the nearly maxedout government an even higher credit limit or dramatically cut spending to stay within the current cap. Either way, a fight is ahead on Capitol Hill, inflamed by the passions of tea party activists and deficit hawks. Already, both sides are blaming each other for an approaching economic train wreck as Washington wrestles over how to keep the government in business and avoid default on global financial obligations. Bills increasing the debt limit are among the most unpopular to come before Congress, serving as pawns for decades in high-stakes bargaining games. Every time until now, the ending has been the same: We go to the brink before raising the ceiling.
U.S. promotes film WASHINGTON — Even as prosecutors build a case against the Army private suspected of passing hundreds of thousands of diplomatic cables to WikiLeaks, the State Department is promoting a documentary film that celebrates Pentagon Papers leaker Daniel Ellsberg.
Amid its struggle to contain damage from the WikiLeaks revelations, the State Department announced Saturday that Ellsberg “The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers” has been selected as one of 18 films that will tour the world this year as part of its “American Documentary Showcase” program. Ellsberg, whom the film portrays as a whistleblower of conscience, has been a champion of Pfc. Bradley E. Manning, the alleged leaker of the documents who is currently jailed. He has also spoken in defense of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who may also face charges for publishing classified information. When the documentary was released in 2009, Ellsberg said it took The New York Times three months to review the study and decide to publish it.

Chaotic night preceded shootings for gunman By Justin Pritchard and Michael R. Blood The Associated Press
TUCSON, Ariz. — He wandered through the dark streets of his hometown, meandering from one store to another on a furious all-night excursion as he prepared what authorities say were the final steps in taking revenge on a world from which he’d become progressively alienated. Jared Loughner checked into a down-and-out motel. He picked up photos showing him holding a Glock 19 while wearing only a bright red G-string. He bought ammunition on one of three trips to two different Walmarts. He called a high-school potsmoking buddy, ran away from his father into a cactus-dotted desert and updated his MySpace profile to say, “Goodbye friends.” Michelle Martinez ran into Loughner during his rambling odyssey. She and some friends were hanging out in the neighborhood when a sullen figure emerged from the darkness in a black hooded sweatshirt and startled them. Loughner picked his way through the group rather than walk around them, offering a deep, distant “What’s up?” He then quickened his pace and disappeared into the darkness. “I had a feeling he was think-
Doctors replace Giffords’ breathing tube By Alicia Chang

TUCSON, Ariz. — Doctors on Saturday removed Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ breathing tube and could soon know if she can speak. Giffords had an operation Saturday to replace the breathing tube with a tracheotomy tube in her windpipe. That allows her to breathe better and frees her from the ventilator. Though Giffords had been breathing on her own since she was shot in the head Jan. 8, doctors had left the breathing tube in as a precaution. A feeding tube was also put in to provide nutrition. ing about something,” said Martinez, who knew Loughner from their school days. “It was just kind of weird.” The encounter epitomizes Loughner’s final hours as he became increasingly unhinged, culminating, authorities said, with him opening fire on a crowd
Those procedures are not out of the ordinary for braininjured patients. Giffords’ doctors have said they should be able to evaluate her ability to speak once the breathing tube is out. Giffords, who was wounded in last weekend’s attack that killed six people, remains in critical condition at University Medical Center. “Her recovery continues as planned,” the hospital said in a statement. Her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly, has remained at her bedside. One patient was discharged Saturday while two others remain in good condition. of people at an event for Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. Officials do not know what pushed Loughner over the edge, but interviews, records and a police chronology released Friday provide a fuller picture of his movements that in many ways reflect his scattered mind.
Tunisia hit with looting; new president sworn in By Elaine Ganley and Bouazza Ben Bouazza The Associated Press
TUNIS, Tunisia — Looting, deadly prison riots and street chaos engulfed Tunisia on Saturday, a day after mass protests forced its strongman to flee. A new interim president was sworn in, promising to create a unity government that could include the long-ignored opposition. It was the second change of power in this North African nation in less than 24 hours. Saturday night appeared calmer than the previous night, which saw looters empty shops and torch the capital’s main train station as well as some shops. As military helicopters
patrolled overhead, residents in some neighborhoods armed themselves with sticks and clubs, forming impromptu militias to protect their homes. Saturday also saw soldiers trade fire with assailants in front of the Interior Ministry, while thousands of European tourists scrambled to find flights home. The death toll mounted. At least 42 people were killed Saturday in a prison fire in one resort town and the director of another prison in another tourist haven let 1,000 inmates flee after soldiers shot five dead amid a rebellion. Those deaths came on top of scores of others after a month of protests in which police often fired upon demonstrators. After 23 years of autocratic
rule, President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali abruptly fled the country Friday for Saudi Arabia following mass street protests over corruption, a lack of jobs and clampdowns on civil liberties. The leadership changes then came at a dizzying speed. Ben Ali’s longtime ally, Prime Minister Mohammed Ghannouchi, stepped in briefly with a vague assumption of power that left open the possibility that Ben Ali could return. But on Saturday, the head of the Constitutional Council declared the president’s departure permanent and gave Fouad Mebazaa, leader of the lower house of parliament, 60 days to organize new elections. Hours later, Mebazaa was sworn in.

Signs of trouble are arising for President Barack Obama’s plan to put education overhaul at the forefront of his agenda as he adjusts to the new reality of a divided government. Giving students and teachers more flexibility is an idea with bipartisan support. Yet, the debate about the renewal of No Child Left Behind is complicated by political pressures from the coming 2012 presidential campaign and disputes over timing, money and scope of the update. While education might offer the best chance for Obama to work with Republicans, any consensus could fade in the pitiless political crosscurrents, leaving the debate for another day.
When she turned 113, Mississippi Winn could still stand up on her own and never thought her age was a detriment to her life. The upbeat former domestic worker from Shreveport, La., died Friday afternoon at Magnolia Manor Nursing Home, said Milton Carroll, an investigator with the Caddo Parish Coroner’s Office. He said he could not release her cause of death. Winn was believed to be the oldest living African-American in the U.S. and the seventh-oldest living person in the world, said Robert Young of the Gerontology Research Group, which verifies information for Guinness World Records.
Police signed murder charges Saturday against a 19-yearold man they accuse of fatally shooting a New Jersey police officer who had driven up beside him and started to question him. A massive manhunt is under way for Jahmell W. Crockam, who is charged with killing Lakewood Patrolman Christopher Matlosz on Friday. Ocean County Prosecutor Marlene Lynch Ford said Crockam is known by the street name “Sav” — short for “Savage.” A Superior Court Judge set bail for Crockam at $5 million cash once he is arrested.
A teenager at the heart of the latest criminal probe of Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi said Saturday the billionaire media mogul gave her $9,350 when she came to a Valentine’s Day soiree at his villa but reiterated she didn’t have sex with him. Milan prosecutors were investigating whether Berlusconi paid for sex with an underage girl from Morocco and then abused his power in trying to cover up the encounters. Berlusconi has criticized the probe, calling the allegations “incredible and grotesque.” The teenager, a nightclub dancer nicknamed Ruby, said Berlusconi didn’t know she was a minor “because I told everyone I was 24,” not 17.

BRINNON — Community members took a firsthand look last week at a model of the proposed Pleasant Harbor Resort and listened to a presentation by the president of the Statesman Group, which intends to build the facility. Some liked what they saw. Some didn’t. “We believe this project will be successful in the revitalization of the local economy and will create a legacy for local residents they can pass on to their children,” said Garth Mann, president of the Statesman Group, as he showed a three-dimensional model of the proposed project to about 45 people in Brinnon on Friday. “If you don’t create employment opportunities for your children, an area eventually dies,” he said.

The resort would include a golf course and a hotel that would be open to the public. Mann said his company was convinced the vacation business will continue to thrive despite the economy, which he said is improving. “The economy is starting to recover in ’11,” he said. “People are continuing to spend a lot of money on vacation, and when they look at the big picture, they will see this is a good deal for them.”

Verdict buoys Knox team The Associated Press
ROME — A defense lawyer for Amanda Knox, the U.S. college student serving a 26-year prison sentence for the murder of her British roommate, expressed optimism Saturday that a drug charge conviction of a prosecution witness might help the American in her appeal in Italy. The defense always maintained that Antonio Curatolo, a homeless man in the university town of Perugia, wasn’t a credible witness, Luciano Ghirga told The Associated Press in Rome. Perugia court offices were closed Saturday, and officials could not be reached to confirm Italian news reports that Curatolo had been convicted earlier in
the week for dealing drugs. It wasn’t immediately known what his sentence was or if he had been jailed. In the first trial against Knox, Curatolo testified that he saw Knox and fellow murder trial defendant Raffaele Sollecito chatting near the apartment house the night Meredith Kercher was slain in 2007. Sollecito, an Italian who was Knox’s boyfriend at the time, was also convicted of the slaying and sentenced to 25 years in prison. Both defendants are appealing their convictions. The next hearing in the appeals trial in Perugia is scheduled for Jan. 22. “We have always said that he was not a credible witness,” Ghirga said, refer-
ring to Curatolo. “It was the court that held he was credible.” The drug charge conviction “will be an additional thing to help prove the witness is not credible,” Ghirga said in a phone interview. Seeking new witnesses is a key defense strategy in the appeals trial, with Knox’s lawyers hoping new witnesses will refute Curatolo’s assertion. Curatolo had told the lower court that he had seen Knox and Sollecito chatting on a basketball court hear the house where the American woman and Kercher shared a rented flat the night Kercher was stabbed to death. The victim’s body was found in a pool of blood in her bedroom Nov. 2, 2007.

The other, state Sen. Tim Sheldon, D-Potlatch, said he receives a paycheck from both jobs. Sheldon said he also has been criticized for holding two elected positions, but referred to it as being merely “political.” Jones said the county doesn’t keep track of the hours worked by the three commissioners, but he estimates they all work about 60 hours a week. The county documents only what days they are in their offices at the Clallam County Courthouse. Tharinger said he will keep track of his own hours, and pay back what he thinks he should at the end of the session. He acknowledged that it will be “difficult” at times to
determine which issues fall under his duties as a county commissioner or state legislator. Tharinger said there will be some overlap.
‘Going to be tricky’ “That’s going to be tricky,” he said. “That line is not going to be super, super bright. “So, I’ll just try to keep some mental note, or write notes, as to my schedule and where they overlap.” During the legislative session, Tharinger plans to participate in county commission’s meetings each Monday and Tuesday via speakerphone from Olympia. He phoned in during the Jan. 3-4 meetings while he was in Olympia preparing
for the session. Tharinger also phoned in during the first half hour of the commission’s Monday meeting and missed Tuesday’s meeting.

Sequim woman died weeks before ruling By Paul Gottlieb
Peninsula Daily News
SEQUIM — Trish Schultz was 48 when she died Christmas Eve, her record stained by a drug conviction. On Thursday, barely three weeks later, the state Supreme Court threw out the conviction in a precedent-setting, 5-4 decision. Schultz’s son, George Peterson of Port Angeles, said Friday he knows exactly how his mother would have reacted. “This is one of those occasions where she would walk in the door with a beaming smile on her face and say, ‘I hate to be saying this, but I told you so,’” said Peterson, 29. “It’s really kind of sad,
but it’s the only bit of news I’ve received in the last few weeks that’s been kind of uplifting,” P e t e r s o n Schultz said. He wasn’t surprised that Schultz didn’t give in after she was convicted in Clallam C o u n t y Peterson Superior Court of possessing methamphetamine and after the state Court of Appeals upheld the decision, instead continuing her appeal to the state Supreme Court.
“My mother’s tenacity, when it comes to some things, was quite impressive,” he said. “To kind of have this [happen] a couple of weeks later in the midst of everything is kind of good.” The court ruled that two Sequim police officers who lacked a search warrant should not have entered Schultz’s apartment April 4, 2004. They did so without Schultz’s explicit consent even though “she acquiesced to the entry” by stepping aside as they entered her apartment, Justice Tom Chambers said in the majority opinion. Officers Kori Malone and Michael Hill had showed up at her door in response to a potential domestic violence
call from one of Schultz’s neighbors. The justices also ruled Malone and Hill had no evidence that an emergency was occurring when they entered her apartment without Schultz’s consent and without telling her she could refuse to allow them to enter.
‘Imminent threat’ ruling In its ruling, the court set a new “imminent threat” standard for warrantless searches by law enforcement officers responding to domestic violence situations. Chambers said the court had never before “specifically addressed the emergency aid exception to the warrant requirement in the
context of domestic violence.” Clallam County Prosecuting Attorney Deb Kelly said Thursday she may ask the court to reconsider its decision.

fines,” he added, and the case had been “kind of a thorn in her side” until the day she died. At the time of his mother’s death, she had been on Social Security for seven or eight years for an injury she suffered while employed as a motel housekeeper in Vermont, he said. The cause of Schultz’s death is pending, Peterson said. She is survived by two sons, three daughters, a sister and both parents. Schultz would have turned 49 on Jan. 29.
She defended the officers’ actions as appropriate and pledged to continue to aggressively pursue domestic violence cases. Kelly said Schultz served “maybe a day or two” of a 30-day sentence, with credit for time served and community supervision. But the sentence still ________ hung over her, Peterson said.

PORT ANGELES — The trial of a former Clallam County Sheriff ’s Office employee accused of stealing $8,644 from the evidence room has been rescheduled for Feb. 14. Clallam County Judge Ken Williams last week reset the trial, which was scheduled for Jan. 24, to allow more time for two motions to be heard. The motions, filed by Staci L. Allison’s attorney, seek to dismiss the case entirely and to remove
Moved for dismissal Allison’s attorney, Ralph Anderson, moved for dismissal of the case in October, citing late disclosure of evidence. Anderson maintained that the late discovery of
evidence — including a box of documents from the State Patrol, which investigated the theft — the week before the case was set to go to trial in September shows that the Prosecuting Attorney’s Office has mismanaged the case. Anderson also is seeking to remove Kelly from the case. A hearing on that matter has been set for Jan. 27. Anderson alleged a conflict of interest because the Sheriff’s Office hired the prosecuting attorney’s husband, Don Kelly, to organize
the evidence room after it became aware of the missing money. During that work, Don Kelly, a former sergeant with the Sheriff’s Office, found $5,000 in an envelope apparently hidden in the evidence room, said Sheriff Bill Benedict, who took office in January 2007. The prosecuting attorney said it doesn’t pertain to the case because that missing envelope isn’t included in the charges. She said she would move for dismissal of her husband as a witness if she stays on the case.

Anderson said he plans to call Don Kelly as a witness if the matter proceeds to trial. Benedict said two people work in the evidence room to help prevent evidence from being stolen. The missing money made it harder to prosecute cases, he said. “There were some we didn’t file on or dismissed,” Benedict said.

He said the man was on the tracks between rail crossings when he was hit. The train was traveling at less than 40 mph. The other fatality occurred at 12:40 a.m. about 35 miles south of Seattle, between Auburn and Sumner, when a train traveling at about 35 mph hit a man near a golf course. He said the crash site was also between rail crossings. Melonas said police and BNSF officials are investigating both crashes and didn’t have names or other details.

NOAA details draft management plan By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News
With an eye on conservation and collaboration, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has released a draft management plan for the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary. The management plan and accompanying environmental assessment, released Friday, revises the Port Angeles-based sanctuary’s original management plan that was published in 1994. It identifies goals and strategies for sanctuary staff to protect and conserve marine resources along the Olympic Peninsula coast for the next five to 10 years. “This plan is much more detailed and better organized than our original plan was,” said George Galasso, acting sanctuary superintendent. “It also better reflects the priorities of some of our key partners. It’s wellaligned with the coastal tribes as well as with the Washington state Ocean Action Plan.” Robert Steelquist, sanctuary education coordinator, said the only change to regulation in the plan would affect cruise ship dumping. NOAA has proposed to prohibit wastewater discharge from cruise ships within the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary. “The main purpose of the plan is really to identify the priorities for our work,” Steelquist said. With limited state and federal dollars, the sanctuary will focus on collaboration. “That’s the climate we’re in,” Steelquist said. The 306-page document is available for public review on the Port Angeles-based sanctuary’s website, www. olympiccoast.noaa.gov.

Public comments will be taken through March 25. The Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary Advisory Council will discuss the sanctuary’s draft management plan and draft environmental assessment Friday. The meeting will begin at 10 a.m. in Room 160 on the main level of the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles. The meeting will provide a good overview on the subject, Galasso said.
Additionally, public meetings, both at 6 p.m., are scheduled for Feb. 23 at the Clallam County Courthouse (Room 160) and Feb. 24 at the state Department of Natural Resources community room in Forks, 411 Tillicum Lane. “Some of the other differences in the plan is how it’s organized,” said Galasso, who has worked on the planning document for the past several years. “It’s a comprehensive plan. It actually includes many more activities.”
Steelquist said the process of drafting the plan “really incorporated everything we’ve learned by being around as long as we have.” “This plan, I think, really states our intent to work in that environment of collaboration,” Steelquist said. The draft plan was based on years of scientific assessment and public input, he said. It makes recommendations for goals and objectives and contains 20 action plans based on different funding levels.
“The draft management plan is the result of a collaborative effort that involved input from the public, Sanctuary Advisory Council and Intergovernmental Policy Council,” said Daniel J. Basta, director of NOAA’s Office of National Marine Sanctuaries, in a prepared statement. “We welcome further public review and comment as we go forward with the important job of managing this special undersea place for future generations to enjoy.” The management plan is broken down into six priorities: ■ Fulfill treaty trust responsibility. ■ Achieve collaborative and coordinated management. ■ Conduct collaborative research, assessments and monitoring to support ecosystem-based management. ■ Improve ocean literacy. ■ Conserve natural resources. ■ Understand the sanctuary’s cultural, historical and socioeconomic significance. Congress requires each of the 13 national marine sanctuaries to periodically review their management plans. The idea is to ensure that they continue to conserve, protect and enhance significant living and cultural resources and compatible commercial and recreational activities, sanctuary officials said. A final version of the new management plan is expected to be released in September. “Then, really, the work starts because now we have to implement the plan,” Galasso said. “We’re not going to be able to accomplish everything that’s listed in the plan.”
Keith Thorpe/Peninsula Daily News
Resources, or lack thereof, will determine how much of the plan will be implemented. It takes into account different funding levels. “It’s important to take into account not only our own resources, but also the resources of our partners,” Galasso said. “We’re very well-aligned with the state. We have a lot of common interests. One really good example is habitat mapping.” Galasso said performance measures in the plan will foster greater transparency and accountability to the public. “Frankly, the limitations are in the implementation,” Galasso said. “These are challenging times for the federal and state budget, and we need to look for areas to be more efficient.” Public comments can be mailed to Galasso, acting superintendent, Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary, 115 E. Railroad Ave., Suite 301, Port Angeles, WA 98362. They also can be faxed to 360-457-8496. Comments may be submitted electronically through www.regulations. gov.

Tuesday ticket deadline for ‘Ladies’ night By Diane Urbani de la Paz
Peninsula Daily News
Quieter life Dowdell and her husband, wanting a quieter life, moved from New York City to Sequim a few years ago. A composer and arranger as well as a pianist, Dowdell has been busy working on productions around the North Olympic Peninsula, and teaching at the Olympic Music School in Sequim. Dowdell is delighted with the chance to mount “Here’s to the Ladies!” in a new space.
“I love the balcony and stage” at the Elks Lodge, she said. And the music, though created early in the 20th century, suits the moment. “These songs,” Dowdell said, “were written at another time when optimism was needed to help people get back on the track after a recession,” the one now known as the Great Depression. Dowdell made sure “Ladies” is loaded with delicious flavor and humor.
“Them There Eyes” from 1930, “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love” from 1928 and that response to unrequited love, “Let’s Go Eat Worms in the Garden,” are all here. One of Shea’s favorite moments in the show is her duet with Silliman, “Good Morning Heartache.” The song, co-written by Irene Higginbotham, is joined with “Willow Weep for Me,” a 1932 composition by Ann Ronell.
Shea added that she’s enjoying the company of Ron Graham, with whom she’s worked in the past. Graham plays Mister, the only man in “Here’s to the Ladies!” Mister is a skeptic when it comes to women writing popular songs — but they show him but good. Kay Swift, Betty Comden and Vee Lawnhurst, along with Holiday, Fields and Ronell, contributed a slate of tunes to the American songbook, and “Ladies!” is a trib-

PORT ANGELES — Honey — the kind you hear — is to be the main course. Port Angeles’ chanteuses, plus the female composers of the 1930s and ’40s, will pour their sweetest sounds into the Elks Naval Lodge next weekend in a benefit for PALOA, the Port Angeles Light Opera Association. It’s titled “A Taste of ‘Here’s to the Ladies!’” and it’s an evening of song starring Sarah Shea, Mindy Gelder and Charisa Silliman, backed by pianist Linda Dowdell and stand-up bass player Kia Armstrong. The dinner and show come to the Elks Lodge at 131 E. First St., Port Angeles, on Friday and Satur- Shea day. Tickets are $45 per person or $80 per couple. Reservations must be made by Tuesday. “Here’s to Graham the Ladies!” had its West Coast premiere last fall in Port Townsend. The musical revue w i t h Heather Dudley Nol- Silliman lette, Marlette Buchanan and Lee Harwell had sold-out performances at the Key City Playhouse. So PALOA and Dowdell, co-creator of the show, got together and started plotting. They decided on a dinner theater format and a slimmed-down version of the revue for PALOA’s annual gala. “Ladies,” however, still features a good 17 numbers, from Billie Holiday’s “Fine and Mellow” to Jerome Kern and Dorothy Fields’ “Pick Yourself Up.” Dowdell then approached Shea, who’s known for her
jazz singing in nightclubs and in productions such as Olympic Theatre Arts’ “Cabaret” last year. “I had always wanted to work with her,” Shea said of Dowdell, whose musical career has taken her around the world with Mikhail Baryshnikov’s White Oak Dance Project, the Mark Morris Dance Group and other prestigious outfits.

Deadline for park haze plans missed By Peninsula Daily News and The Associated Press
industry resistance and competing clean air rules have slowed progress in clearing it.
ONP one of plan’s targets
SEATTLE — More than 30 years after Congress set a goal of clearing the pollution-caused haze that obscures scenic vistas at some of America’s wildest and most famous natural places, progress is still slow in coming. Saturday marked the deadline for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to approve most state plans aimed at curbing pollution from coal-fired power plants and industrial sources to improve visibility at 156 national parks and wilderness areas such as Olympic National Park and at Shenandoah and the Grand Canyon national parks. The agency hasn’t formally approved any state plans — or come up with its own, as required. “We will not have final federal plans in place by Jan. 15,” the agency said in an e-mail late Friday. The agency said it has proposed partial approval of Idaho’s plan, a partial federal plan for New Mexico and a federal plan for the Four Corners area on tribal land. The agency added that “there is progress in every state toward visibility improvements, reductions in harmful emissions and the development of state plans.” “Here’s a program intended to clean up skies of the nation’s most pristine areas. It has been pushed aside for too long and must be made a top-tier priority,” said Stephanie Kodish, attorney for the nonprofit National Parks Conservation Association.
Peninsula Daily News
Olympic National Park is one of eight Washington parks and wilderness areas targeted for reductions in haze-making air pollution under the proposed Washington state Regional Haze State Implementation Plan. Seth Preston, state Department of Ecology spokesman, said haze is a cumulative effect of automobile emissions, industry — including a huge coal-fired power plant in Centralia — wood stoves, wildfires and other sources, including ship traffic in the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Some of the pollution is coming from Canada or Asia via the jet stream, Preston said in September, when a draft of the plan was released. “We’re looking at continuing to do some of the things that are already under way,” Preston said, referring to burn bans and vehicle emission standards.
‘What we can control’ “The idea is to control what we can control.” Regional Haze State Implementation Plans are aimed at restoring 140-mile visibility in “Class 1” areas across the nation. Washington state has eight Class 1 areas. In addition to Olympic National Park, they are Mount Rainier National Park, North Cascades National Park, Glacier Peak Wilderness, Alpine Lakes Wilderness, Goat Rocks Wilderness, Mount Adams Wilderness and Pasayten

Wilderness. A National Park Service study found that sulfur was the largest contributor to reduced visibility at Olympic National Park, “a result largely of power plants and urban emissions. “Nitrates contributed about 10 percent of the visibility reduction at the park, and mostly result from nitrogen oxide emissions from pulp and paper mills or lime-kiln activity, fires, power plants and transportation,” the study added. The Sierra Club has identified the TransAlta coal plant in Centralia as the single largest stationary source in the state of global warming gases, mercury and nitrogen oxides, an air pollutant that can cause “visibility-limiting haze in national parks and wilderness areas,” according to state Ecology. TransAlta’s 1,376-megawatt plant generates up to one-tenth of the state’s electricity. The National Park Service’s website branded the Centralia plant “a source of nitrogen, sulfur and mercury pollution at Olympic NP.” The power plant is located about 55 miles from the park’s southern boundary.
reached in June between the state and TransAlta calls on the Alberta, Canada-based company to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions by 20 percent and mercury pollution by 50 percent by Dec. 31, 2012. The company will spend up to $30 million on emissions-cutting technology to meet the deadline, company spokeswoman Marcy McAuley said in June. That’s on top of more than $200 million already spent to reduce sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide emissions from the plant. “TransAlta is the largest single source of nitrogen oxides but a small piece of that pie at 4 percent of the total,” Ecology spokesman Seth Preston noted in September, adding that motor vehicles are the largest source of haze-producing pollution at 56 percent. New federal fuel efficiency rules for on-road and off-road vehicles are expected by 2018 to reduce vehicle emissions of five major air pollutants by 25 percent to 95 percent, according to the Ecology plan. Climate change is likely to alter the air pollution picture, according to the Ecology plan. Climate change models predict a drier Pacific Northwest, which could lead to more wildfires, thus more smoke, in the future.

The Associated Press. The EPA said it is taking the time to ensure strong plans are in place. In Oklahoma, for example, the EPA is likely to reject a proposal, state officials said, after the state determined it wasn’t cost-effective to require six coal-fired units there to install scrubbers. The EPA said such devices
Haze-causing pollution continues to obscure scenic vistas that draw millions of visitors to parks and wilderness areas throughout the country. In eastern parks, average visibility has dropped from 90 miles to between 15 and 25 miles, while visual range in the West has been reduced from 140 miles to between 35 and 90 miles. The 1977 Clean Air Act established a national goal to restore visibility in protected areas to conditions that would exist naturally, without pollution. “When you think of national parks, you think of clean and clear air,” said John Bunyak, policy chief of the National Park Service air resources division. Reducing pollutants to improve visibility also can yield public health benefits, the EPA said. Fine particles that cause haze are linked to serious health problems, such as aggravated asthma, heart attacks and premature death. The NPCA, the National Park Service, the U.S. Forest Service and other groups have pushed states to consider the tough pollution controls such as scrubbers or technology that works like a car’s catalytic converter to filter nitrogen oxides.

Installing such devices, however, costs hundreds of millions of dollars, and industry officials said it would lead to skyrocketing utility rates and cripple businesses that are economic drivers in many states. Companies said they’re trying to balance improving visibility while ensuring energy reliability and protecting customers from huge rate hikes. Even some states have concluded it’s too expensive to require for some facilities, preferring alternatives such as low-sulfur coal. “It’s understandable that states are having a hard time meeting EPA demands when doing so comes at great costs to consumers,” said Paul Seby, an attorney in Denver, who represents coal producers and power companies. The EPA is requiring more of the states than is allowed under the haze rule, he said. By June, the EPA is under a court deadline to approve state plans — or come up with its own — for California, Colorado, Idaho, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma and Oregon, after the group sued. Park and forest officials, in comments to states, have questioned whether some overestimated the costs of installing pollution devices and whether their plans make enough progress. Haze over Big Bend National Park in Texas or Voyageurs National Park in Minnesota, for example, wouldn’t be eliminated for more than a century.

Park and forest officials told Washington stated last summer that its plan worsens air quality at North Cascades National Park and Glacier Peak Wilderness. The state’s latest analysis, however, disputed that based on updated modeling. In Oregon, faced with $500 million in retrofits proposed, Portland General Electric Co. has proposed shutting down the state’s only coal-fired power plant in Boardman, Ore., by 2020. At Shenandoah National Park in Virginia, visitors can only see on average about 12 miles, or one-tenth what it should be under natural conditions. “Historically, our claim to fame was to see the Washington Monument,” located 80 miles away, from the park’s Skyline Drive, said Jim Schaberl, park air quality manager. “It’s a rare occasion, generally during the winter, when people can see the monument from the drive.”

Kingston tries to steer ferry through rough waters Could be next month before service resumes Peninsula Daily News news services
KINGSTON — With great hoopla, the Port of Kingston inaugurated its new passenger ferry service to Seattle in October. Within a month, the hoopla stopped, the victim of a broken boat. An engine failed on the Spirit of Kingston, forcing the port to indefinitely suspend service Nov. 18. The boat has since been fixed, but the port doesn’t want to restart service until it’s certain the vessel is in good operating condition — and can at least break even financially. It may be next month before service resumes. Whether it will continue for the long haul is a huge question for the Port of Kingston commissioners who oversee it. When it was operating, the boat carried only about 35 people a day, far below the initial target of 80. The long-term goal is 300 passengers a day. Eric Osnes, the former ferry program manager, said the operating costs for the ferry are about $2,400 a day, and the ferry needs those 300 passengers consistently to break even. Commission Chairman Pete DeBoer said the port has organized a citizen advisory committee to work out a
business plan to make the ferry a success. He hopes to have that completed in a month. “I would be so pleased if this would work,” DeBoer said. “I wake up every morning thinking about it and go to sleep every night thinking about it. “This is our chance to make it work.”
Former PA boat The two-boat service began in October, funded primarily by a $3.5 million federal grant. In addition to the Spirit of Kingston, the port owns a backup and “party” boat, the Kingston Express, formerly the Victoria Express, a 105foot, single-hull foot ferry that sailed for years between Port Angeles and Victoria. The port bought the Express from its Port Angeles owners for $650,000. DeBoer said the port had to begin service in October or it would lose the federal grant. The port also received $150,000 from the state when the latter exited the foot ferry business and sold its passenger vessels. The port is still waiting to hear on its application for a $500,000 state transit grant. The Spirit of Kingston, part of what the port calls the SoundRunner service, can carry 149 passengers. Eric Walter, an architect who works in downtown Seattle, took the Spirit of Kingston on its inaugural voyage. He is a huge fan, even
though it costs him more than taking a state ferry from Bainbridge Island. “I want to do anything I can to make it work,” said Walter. “If they have to shut it down and get their Ps and Qs together, that’s fine with me. “I’ve wanted this for years and years and years and have done almost everything I can to make it work.” DeBoer said the port is considering changes that might reduce the $15 roundtrip fare and change the return schedule from Seattle. He said the late boat was running with few riders. “Unlike any other public transportation system, we have no subsidy,” DeBoer said. “We have to make it work from the fare box, and that’s a huge challenge.” He said the port also hopes to sign on to the ORCA fare card, which can be used on most public transit systems in the Seattle area.
have proved popular, said DeBoer, and the service almost broke even. Even DeBoer admits its still too soon to see if SoundRider can be successful. Said Walter: “There’s lots of people who really want it to succeed.”

DeBoer said an advantage of the port running the ferry service is that it doesn’t have to make a profit. “A break-even situation would be heaven for us,” he said. “[Seattle Mayor Mike] McGinn wants fewer cars in Seattle, and this is a way to do it, just having this one little run.” Jan Zufelt, a Kingston real estate agent and former president of the Kingston Chamber of Commerce, is a

SEATTLE — Weather forecasts in the Northwest will get a boost this winter from a high-tech jet now based in Japan that gathers data on storms in the northern Pacific Ocean several days before they hit the West Coast. The high-altitude, twinengine Gulfstream IV-SP jet looks like a business jet, but it’s packed with scientific equipment that can help see atmospheric details through layers of clouds — something satellites are unable to do, according to Jack Parrish of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration, a meteorologist, flight director and the jet’s project manager. “It certainly improves things,” said Parrish, of the NOAA Office of Marine and Aviation Operations. He said the jet ups the accuracy of the five- to sixday forecast. The jet also helps get forecasts faster than usual. It should give emergency planners at least an extra day to prepare for storms. The aircraft has flown its Japan-based missions since early 2009 but couldn’t help with 2010 snow forecasts in November and December because it was busy with hurricane season

Help! I need a wedding planner! IN ONE WEEK, I will be a married man. The question I am most Michael commonly asked by my Showalter guy friends is, “Are you nervous?” To which I respond, “No. Why? Should I be?” Now I’m nervous about the fact that I’m not nervous. The question that I am most commonly asked by my women friends is, “Are you excited?” I have the same response. “No. Why? Should I be?” Full disclosure: I am excited, but I’ll never cop to it. Never!
One more week of freedom, and then I’m destined to an eternity of sharing my life with another person. In reflecting on what was and what will be, I have compiled a short list of things that I will miss about my bachelorhood. ■ Let’s start with the obvious: I will miss dating. Oh, how I loved the small talk (“So, what are you going to order? I hear the (fill in special dish) is really good here,” “What kind of throat lozenge do you prefer most?” “I’ve also been to Santa Fe!”), the anxiety (“I e-mailed her five minutes ago, and she still hasn’t written me back! She obviously hates me!”) and the ambiguity (“She said she’s not that into me. What does that mean?!”). ■ I will miss hanging out with my buddies (“Guys, why don’t we have girlfriends? We’re
such losers.”). ■ I will miss my late-night carousing (“There’s nothing on TV. I guess I’ll just make a sandwich and watch ‘Die Hard’ again.”). ■ I will miss eating cereal with a fork. ■ I will miss leaving the seat up with total impunity. What a strange journey these past six months of wedding planning have been. Who knew flowers cost so much money? Who knew it would be so difficult to make a seating chart? Who knew that WilliamsSonoma had so many different types of serving pans? A good friend told us when we were first engaged: “The wedding is not just the wedding itself. “The wedding is everything
leading up to the wedding. “The wedding itself is just the curtain call.” If that’s true, then our wedding has been a five-act play. ■ Act 1 is when the main characters are introduced. Our main characters, we soon discovered, are her mother and my mother. The De Niro and Pacino, if you will. Everyone else has a supporting role (myself and my fiancee included). ■ Act 2 has all the comedy set pieces. On our invitations, the word “wedding” is accidentally misspelled and reads “welding.” They have to be redone. ■ Act 3 has some big action sequences set to music. Imagine, if you will, a rocking song playing while the groom, me
(brilliantly played by Matt Damon), tries on literally thousands of different blue ties, while his fiancee (played by my fiancee) doesn’t like any of them. ■ Act 4 is the sad part in which some people tell you that they can’t make it to the wedding — and perhaps, more sadly, some people tell you that they can. ■ Act 5 happens next week. I’ll let you know how it goes. ________ Michael Showalter is a comedian, writer, actor and director. He is one of the four columnists who appear here every Sunday.

“Boy, I’m not a big fan of it going up. Worried? I’m practically freaking out about it. My sister said it’ll go up to $5 [a gallon]. It looks like tough times getting worse for all of us.”
“I’m concerned about the rising cost of gas because as the price of gas goes up, it has an escalating effect on all sections of the economy.”
“I’m very worried because it takes money from everything else we need it for, like food, living expenses and just getting to work. It makes it tough to budget.”
“It’s corporate America raping us once again. And yet, we can’t do anything about it. They won’t listen to us. They give us all kinds of excuses for raising the prices.”
“Yes, I’m worried. We’re going to be limited more in our own travels. It’s affecting everyone. There’s nothing we can really do about it, either. It’s a global problem.”
“Somewhat worried. Our economy is not going back up, and this doesn’t help at all. We need far better alternative sources of energy for cars and a price that’s right.”

“It’s going up, and I’m worried. Where is it headed? Is there going to be a cap on it? We need to use the bus now more than ever. That’s very important.”
“I’m more than worried. I’m angry. Prices should be going down to help our economy . . . Gas companies are making profits hand over fist, and I’m on a fixed income.”
Peninsula Voices Upcoming ‘mess’? I read the article about the celebration party for the dam removal now scheduled for the weekend of Sept. 17, 2011 [“Planning Begins For Party To Fete Removal Of Dams,” Jan. 12 PDN]. I also read the article about Dan Morrison’s plan for hosting the Sprint boat racing finals in Port Angeles the same weekend [“Sprint Boats A-Coming. 4-Acre Track To Be Cut Out Of Field West Of Port Angeles,” Jan. 7-8 PDN]. If his predictions are correct, we can expect 6,000 to 8,000 people here from out of town for the finals. I would appreciate the Peninsula Daily News’ attention and continued reporting on the evolution of these two events, as it sounds like a mess waiting to happen. We live adjacent to the Lower Elwha Klallam reservation and just west past Dan Morrison’s Spring boat racetrack property on Edgewood Drive, which means we will be greatly impacted by the confluence of these two events. It sounds like a perfect weekend for Port Angeles residents to be out of the area completely, which
would impact the participation in an event that really is important for Port Angeles — celebrating the removal of the Elwha River dams. In the article on the celebration for dam removal, Olympic National Park spokesman Dave Reynolds said, “We envision things going on all around town.” But it sounds like no one will be able to get there from here.

Both boys met teachers who challenged and encouraged them. Both participated in a music program that stretched them. And both learned perseverance and teamwork from committed coaches. The Port Angeles School District is asking us to support a maintenance and operations levy to replace the current levy that expires at the end of the year. On the one hand, all of us are keeping a close eye on expenses these days. On the other hand, recent economic challenges provide even more incentive for us to invest in the young people of our community. While our boys are no longer in the local school system, Elizabeth and I continue to be thankful for what they received here. I can think of no better way to express that thanks than by voting in favor of the upcoming levy. Please join me. David Christian, Port Angeles

‘Income gap’ Where is Robin Hood when you need him? We, the state of Washington taxpayers, had the chance to tax the rich last fall with a state income tax, and we let it fail. The opponents of the bill claimed that corporations would not be able to attract top talent and that it would therefore hurt the business community. But isn’t it clear to us that corporations downsize, outsource and create as few jobs as soon as possible? The logging practices of timber companies locally show this situation (Crown Zellerbach, Rayonier) and the dying communities that follow. Meanwhile, there is a tremendous amount of work to be done and millions of people needing work. Do we really expect the corporations to take on this work — to repair infrastructure, to educate young people, to provide health
care for everyone? We may not like taxes, we may not like government, but these are the best means for creating a decent society. Good government programs such as Basic Health are emasculated because, as Gov. Gregoire said, “State government can’t do it anymore” (“Government Charity Gap May Widen. Those Who Once Donated Becoming Clients In Need,” Jan. 3 PDN). And yet, the income gap between rich and poor grows. Where is the equality here? Why are programs like basic health such a threat? Why are politicians who propose spending for these type of programs called socialists? What is socialism? Why do “socialist” countries like France or Norway have such good health care? Are their citizens less free than ours? Let’s begin to educate ourselves, please. Dan Burdick, Port Angeles

Work begins on Lake Mills log jam Site staying open for recreation By Paul Gottlieb
Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Workers in two 16-foot motorboats began uncoupling a 10-acre flotilla of logs on Lake Mills on Friday and Saturday. For about four hours, they nudged the logs toward a current that carried the debris through a gate in the Glines Canyon Dam. There, a curling torrent of water hurled the logs 210 feet from the top of the edifice down to the comparatively passive Elwha River.
Untangling logs Federal Bureau of Reclamation workers are untangling several hundred logs that are putting pressure on a log boom that protects the dam’s spillway from debris and potential failure, said Kevin Yancy, Elwha Dam power plant supervisor. If the boom broke, the debris could clog up the spillway, sending water over the top of the dam in an uncontrolled release of water that no one wants to see. “We could have spillway failure with all that there and have a lot of water going downriver that we weren’t planning on dumping,” Yancy said. “That’s a key concern with dam safety,” he said. “That’s why the log booms are in place there.” During the project, which is expected to take several days, Lake Mills will remain open for recreation. The schedule for breaking up the log jam will be dependent on water flow that must be fed by sufficient snowpack in the Olympics, Yancy said. On Friday, 5,000 cubic feet a second roiled through the gate. That equals 2.25 million gallons a second, Yancy said. Bureau of Reclamation workers clear the lake annually of woody debris.
Delta clearing trees But this year, the number of nuisance logs dramatically increased after a delta at the mouth of Lake Mills was cleared last fall. The 37-acre delta, which gradually built up after Glines Canyon Dam was

U.S. Bureau of Reclamation employees John Settle, left, and Frank Horn work at the log boom protecting the Glines Canyon Dam at Lake Mills in Olympic National Park on Saturday as part of an effort to remove part of a log jam near the dam.
“We could have spillway failure with all that there and have a lot of water going downriver that we weren’t planning on dumping. That’s a key concern with dam safety. That’s why the log booms are in place there.”

built on the Elwha River in 1927, was shaved of alder trees and a channel dug through it to release sediment as part of the $351 million Elwha River Restoration project. The project includes tearing down the Glines Canyon Dam and its sister dam, the Elwha Dam, farther downriver beginning in September. A log is carried over the edge through a control gate on the Glines Canyon Dam on Lake Mills in
Olympic National Park on Saturday.
‘Quite a challenge’ About 90 percent of the logs that are putting pressure on the boom are from the delta-clearing project, Yancy said Friday. He stood on top of the wind- and rain-swept dam near the spillway while his boat-borne Bureau of Reclamation colleagues, dwarfed by the floating mass of
wood, separated the logs. Trees plucked from the delta still have their root wads intact, making the job this year even more difficult. “They’re are all tied together like this,” Yancy said, knitting his rubbergloved fingers together. “To push that apart is
quite a challenge,” he said.
20-story free fall For most of Friday morning, workers armed with a chain saw and 18-foot pike poles fought 20-knot winds, cutting through large logs and clearing a path to the main boom gate.
They finally opened it, allowing the debris to float toward its 20-story free fall. Some of these logs will hang up on the river’s shoreline. But many will float about nine miles downriver to Lake Aldwell, bumping up against the smaller, 108foot Elwha Dam to be flung
once again over a giant wall. “In a week or so, we’re going to have to go to the lower dam and do the same thing,” Yancy said.

SARC recreation center elects chairwoman No fee hikes planned this year Peninsula Daily News
SEQUIM — Susan Sorensen, who has served on the Sequim Aquatic Recreation Center board since 2002, has been elected by her fellow SARC board commissioners to serve as board chairwoman for 2011.
She took over for Erika Starks, who has served as chairwoman for the past two years. Sorensen was elected by Starks, Bob MacAulay and Melinda Griffith. Sorensen said that, though the cost of propane,
power and water have gone up, SARC will institute no increase in fees this year, primarily because of the poor economy. Discussions may resume about fees when SARC commissioners consider the facilities’ 2012 budget, she said. Sorensen said SARC is now completely funded by fee-paying users who come through the door.

Rejects vault Hawks WHEN THE SEATTLE Seahawks went to work under a new coaching staff last spring, the offense ran plays that were unofficially dubbed “Stokley plays” because they were ones offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates was familiar with from his time coaching receiver Brandon Stokley in Denver. The problem was, Brandon John Stokley was not a Seahawk. That Boyle signing was still a few months away. Eventually, however, Stokley found his way to Seattle, and as has been the case many times over this season, one team’s castoff became another team’s key contributor. As the Seahawks have spent a season turning over the roster at a head-spinning rate under first-year coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider — Seattle has made 284 roster moves and counting — they have signed and traded for a number of players who have become unlikely keys to the team’s even more improbable run to the division round of the playoffs. The Seahawks Also . . . are playing Chi■ Packers cago in the second top Atlanta round of the playto move on offs not just to NFC title because of the play game/B4 of established veterans like quarterback Matt Hasselbeck and linebacker Lofa Tatupu, and the emergence of highly touted rookies like left tackle Russell Okung and free safety Earl Thomas, but also because of the contributions of players like Stokley who were cast aside by other teams. “He was the missing part, really,” Hasselbeck said of Stokley. “I mean, we were running a lot of these plays that were — we called them ‘Stokley plays’ because this offense is, in large part, the Mike Shanahan 2008 Denver Broncos offense that Jeremy Bates is running. “We tried a bunch of people there and they were pretty good, they were all right, but they weren’t Stokley.” Eventually the Seahawks were able to get Stokley to run the Stokley “Stokley plays” when Denver, which had placed Stokley on injured reserve to start the season, released him in late September. Not surprisingly, Stokley was able to fit in quickly in Seattle’s offense, catching four passes for 62 yards less than a week after signing. He finished the regular season with 31 catches for 354 yards in 11 games, and had four catches for 73 yards in last weekend’s playoff win. “Him coming in was really a blessing,” Hasselbeck said. “I mean, the Broncos cut him and he got healthy and he’s meant a lot to our team. He’s definitely helped. Helped me a lot.”
Stokley one of many And Stokley is hardly the only person to play a big role in the Seahawks’ success after being deemed expendable by another team. The Eagles gave up defensive end Chris Clemons and a fourth-round pick to get Darryl Tapp from Seattle, and Clemons ended up starting and leading Seattle with 11 sacks. Defensive end Raheem Brock, who finished the year with nine sacks, was cut by two teams before the Seahawks signed him in the week leading up to the season opener. The Jets cut ties with Leon Washington, who has returned three kicks for touchdown this year, after he broke his leg last year, and gave up the former Pro Bowler for a fifthround and seventh-round pick. And of course there is receiver Mike Williams, who spent two years out of football before signing with the Seahawks and becoming the team’s leading receiver this season. The Seahawks are playing this weekend in part because Hasselbeck threw for four touchdowns last week in a win over New Orleans, but also because of the contributions of players who weren’t here last year, or in many instances, weren’t even here in training camp.

They played with great energy on the defensive end. “I was really proud of how they played.” The Pirates (3-1 in North, 8-5 overall) led from start to finish Saturday thanks in large part to an early-game offensive surge and a strong defensive effort the rest of the way. Peninsula jumped out to a 19-5 lead against Seattle’s man-to-man defense. After Seattle switched to a 2-3 zone, however, the Pirates cooled off on the offense and continued getting stops. Peninsula held the Storm (2-2, 3-9) to just 36 percent shooting on the night while also forcing 17 turnovers. That was enough to make up for a so-so shooting night (29 of 70 for 41 percent) from the field, as was the fact the Pirates turned the ball over just five times themselves. “To win by 17 against a good squad on the road while shooting that poorly just shows you how tough our defense was tonight,” Von Vogt said. “We competed for every loose ball and contested every shot and made them earn everything they got.” Turn

Long weekend for Riders PA third at Invite, tops rival Sequim Peninsula Daily News
BAINBRIDGE — The Port Angeles wrestling team capped a busy weekend by taking third place out of 11 teams at the Island Invitational at Bainbridge High School on Saturday. The Roughriders’ thirdplace finished came a day after they beat archrival Sequim 51-21 in an Olympic League dual Friday night. Port Angeles, Sequim, Port Townsend and Forks all competed at the Invitational on Saturday, with the Spartans also finishing in the top five. Port Angeles (153 points) finished behind secondplace Klahowya (156) and tournament champion Kingston (197), with Andrew Symonds the lone Rider champ in the 140pound weight class. “All in all not a bad day, but having said that, the kids that we did bring we had a tough day,” said Port Angeles coach Erik Gonzalez, whose Riders won the Rainshadow last weekend. “We know we’ve got to get better if we’re going to catch up to Kingston again.” Second-place finishers for the Riders included Josh Basden at 103, Brian Sullivan at 152, Brian Cristion at 171 and Jacob Dostie in at 215.

Nathan Cristion received his first loss of the year after going into the tournament 23-0. He ended up placing third in a bracket that included two other state wrestlers. The Spartans took fifth place as the smallest school at the competition. Cutter Grahn was the Spartans’ lone champion in the 119 weight class. Tyler Cortani took second place at 125 for the Spartans after losing 5-0 to last year’s state champ, and Dayne House took second from a 1-0 loss at 130. The Wolves showed up a little short-handed Satur-
day and ended the day in eighth place. Derek Fruin was the lone champion for the Wolves, winning his 135pound final 10-1 for his second tournament victory in two weeks. Clay Charlie battled hard in the finals as well but came up short, losing 3-2 in the second overtime to take second place at 285. Port Townsend finished in last place at the Island Invitational with a score of 33 and no wrestlers placing in top spots. Port Angeles will next travel to Klahowya for a rematch Wednesday.
Forks travels to Tenino the same night, and Sequim makes its way over to North Kitsap on Wednesday.
Bremerton 54, Port Townsend 27 BREMERTON — The Redskins fought hard against the Knights on Friday but couldn’t keep up after having to forfeit four matches. Justin Mead won in the 119-pound weight class with a pin at one minute, 33 seconds while Mikael Callahan took the 130 by forfeit. Kris Windle won with a 3-2 decision at 152.
Port Angeles 51, Sequim 21 SEQUIM — The Riders went 6-4 in head-to-head matches to beat the Wolves in Friday’s Olympic League match. Josh Basden won by pin in the 103-pound weight class, and Andrew Symonds took the decision at 140. Other winners included Trevor Lee (160), Zack Grahl (189), Jacob Dostie (215) and Nathan Cristion (285). Austin Middleton won by pin at 130 for Sequim. Dakota Hinton (171), Cody Fields (145) and Derek Fruin (135) won by decision.
Rivals: Sweep Continued from B1 That played right into the Red Devils’ hands as they harassed the Bruins into 43 turnovers and 17-of-51 shooting from the field. Drexler Doherty scored a game-high 19 points, Titus Pascua added 18 and Zeke Greene had 15 points and four assists to lead a group of eight Red Devil scorers. “I think we’re actually coming along really great as a team for having Gerrad [Brooks] as our coach for the first year,” Pascua said. “There’s a lot of new people coming up to varsity with us and I think we’re working together as a team very well.” The Red Devils displayed that teamwork throughout Friday night’s victory while playing their typical uptempo style. Neah Bay dished out 21 assists and turned the ball over just 19 times, breaking open a 16-16 first quarter tie with a 17-0 run fueled by 11 points from Doherty. Pascua knocked down two of his team-high three 3-pointers near the start of the third quarter to cap a 9-2 run for a 49-24 edge, and the Bruins never got closer than 23 points the rest of the way. “I told them I wanted to slow it down a little bit, because Neah Bay runs, and we didn’t slow it down,” Clallam Bay coach Cal Ritter said. “Each one of them tonight tried doing everything by themselves. It didn’t work very well.” Jacob Portnoy led the Bruins with 18 points, hitting 7 of 11 field goal attempts, while Kyle Hess had 16 points and six rebounds. Still, the Bruins were outrebounded 39-36 on the night despite attempting 35 less shots than Neah Bay.
Johnny Smith had a team-high eight rebounds for the Red Devils and dished out four assists, and senior post Eli Monette added 12 points, five assists and seven rebounds. Throw in the massive turnover differential (43-19 in favor of Neah Bay), and Friday night’s game had all the makings of a blowout. “We like to push the pace and get a lot of steals and we’re a faster team,” said Brooks, in his first year at the helm of Neah Bay’s boys basketball team. “We can play really fast and we usually cause teams to play out of their comfort zone. “We did it better in the second half than the first half. The first half I wasn’t pleased at all with our execution. Our effort was there but our execution wasn’t there. The second half, we picked up a lot more.” The Red Devils averaged 2.6 shots per minute while hitting 38.4 percent of them (33-of-86). The Bruins’ attempts to keep up fell flat, due in large part to all of the turnovers Neah Bay’s pressure defense forced. “We just didn’t get the ball down low like I wanted to and we didn’t take good shots,” Ritter said. “I know we’re a better team than what we played tonight, by far.” Neah Bay 84, Clallam Bay 47 Neah Bay Clallam Bay

Clallam Bay’s Kenna Welever holds onto the ball while several players close in during Friday night’s North Olympic League game in Clallam Bay. From left are Faith Tyler (22), Crysandra Sones (21), Jamie Parker (25), Rebecca Thompson and Kirstin Erickson (24). Judging by the way they dispatched the Bruins (1-1, 8-3) on Friday night, another undefeated regular season doesn’t seem too far-fetched for the Red Devils (2-0, 11-0). Cherish Moss had a game-high 16 points and five assists, while fellow junior Rebecca Thompson added 14 points and three assists to lead Neah Bay in its 18th straight NOL win. “Our main goal is getting to state and placing at state,” said Red Devils coach Lisa Halttunen, whose teams have reached state each of the past four years. “As long as we keep that in mind and we’re focused on that when we’re playing these games that will get us there,” the team shouldn’t lose its edge. “There’s always things we can improve on.” Neah Bay’s defense didn’t looked like it needed too much tweaking Friday. Neah Bay’s full-court press gave the Bruins fits all night, leading to 35 Clallam
Bay turnovers and numerous fast break opportunities. The Red Devils cashed in on many of them, shooting 41.6 percent from the field (25 of 60) while dishing out 13 assists as a team. At one point between the second and third quarters, the Red Devils rattled off 18 unanswered points to take a 28-4 lead that would never be challenged. “I thought we played really well,” said Thompson, undefeated in NOL play in her three years on varsity. “We were passing the ball around a lot, did a lot of teamwork. “We work on that over and over in practice, working the ball and pushing it up the court and then setting up our plays. “We know later on in the postseason, that’s what we’re going to need most, is working our plays and stuff.” Thompson sank 7 of 9 shots from the field as part of a group of four Red Devils in double figures.
Cierra Moss added 14 points and eight rebounds and Merissa Murner 10 points and nine rebounds. “They’re so athletic,” Clallam Bay coach Kelly Gregory said. “They killed us in their transition.” Kirstin Erickson scored 10 points and grabbed five rebounds to lead the Bruins, while Jazzmin Randall had six points and 12 rebounds. Of course, that wasn’t near enough against Neah Bay, which limited the Bruins to 29.8 percent shooting (14 of 47) on the night. “Overall, I thought they did a pretty good job,” Gregory said. “It’s a big improvement from the first time we played them [in a 57-16 Neah Bay win].” Neah Bay 60, Clallam Bay 31 Neah Bay Clallam Bay

By Antonio Gonzalez The Associated Press
STANFORD, Calif. — Washington State can finally head home with a Pac-10 road victory. Klay Thompson had 21 points, Faisal Aden scored 20 and Washington State ended Stanford’s eight-game home unbeaten streak with a 61-58 victory Saturday. “If we would have lost this one, it would have been tough to come back and get to .500 in the league,” Aden said. “We sort of left our hearts out there tonight — that’s what we came into the game with.” The dynamic guard duo helped the Cougars (13-5, 3-3) win a conference road game after dropping their first three. Jeremy Green had 13 points and Josh Owens added 12 points for the Cardinal (10-6, 3-2), who were coming off an upset of No. 17 Washington and looking to sustain some momentum. Instead, they had a letdown by blowing a ninepoint halftime lead. “I’m sure we will learn from this,” Stanford coach Johnny Dawkins said. “We don’t like to learn in losses, but we will learn from the experience and how competitive Pac-10 play is and how every night you have to be prepared to adjust and compete at the highest level.”
The Associated Press
The Washington State bench including Will Dilorio (5) celebrate Saturday’s win over Stanford at the end of the game in Stanford, Calif. Washington State’s rally was long overdue. After an overtime loss at California earlier this week, a Bay Area split could give Washington State some confidence. The Cougars had also lost conference games at UCLA and USC. They took control in the second half with energy and effort that Stanford simply couldn’t match. After Thompson’s free throws put the Cougars in front, DeAngelo Casto converted a 3-point play over Dwight Powell with three minutes left to extend their lead to 57-52.
Stanford had two late attempts to force overtime but couldn’t convert. “I think our zone defense was pretty good during that stretch,” Cougars coach Ken Bone said. “That was probably the biggest difference during that time. And we scored some baskets, too. “But we really, really needed to get some stops defensively, and we did.” For most of the game, the Cougars were out of rhythm again in front of another opposing crowd that cheered their every mistake. They played from behind for most of the game and
again had to make a secondhalf run on the road. They also won despite point guard Reggie Moore sitting out for disciplinary reasons. Thompson was swarmed defensively and frustrated into two early fouls that forced him to the bench. Stanford worked Washington State’s zone with ball movement, finding open shooters. Thompson made a 3-pointer and another jumper during an 8-0 spurt early in the second half by the Cougars to tie the score at 33. They went ahead 42-41 on Brock Motum’s layup with 10:17 remaining. Anthony Brown followed with a pair of 3-pointers to put Stanford ahead by five. Then Thompson, a 6-foot-6 junior who entered the game leading the Pac-10 with 23.1 points per outing, rallied Washington State. “I thought that run in the second half was the key,” said Brown, who had 12 points for the Cardinal. “They hit us in the mouth, and we never were able to respond after that.”
Gray, Sacre spark Zags Gonzaga heats up in 2nd half to stay perfect in WCC The Associated Press
SPOKANE — Tied at halftime and struggling to find a rhythm, Gonzaga drew on the experience of its tough nonconference schedule to dominate the second half. Robert Sacre scored 18 points as Gonzaga (13-5,

Sacre and Harris away for a 79-59 win over proved to be too much for Loyola Marymount on the smaller LMU squad. Saturday evening. “It was great to see Steven Gray had 16 [Harris’ inside play],” points and Elias Harris Gonzaga coach Mark Few added 14 and 10 rebounds said. “That’s kind of how for Gonzaga. Gray scored Elias played a lot last 13 second-half points year. He was in attack after attempting just four mode.”
Drew Viney led Loyola Marymount (8-10, 1-3) with 18 points, eight coming from the free-throw line. Anthony Ireland added 10 points, on 4 of 15 shooting, and 10 rebounds. Loyola Marymount made just 15 of 55 shots, and was 24 of 30 from the free-throw line. The Bulldogs shot 51.6 percent from the field, but were just 3 of 12 from 3-point range.
Rodgers torches Atlanta Packers win; Steelers get past Ravens The Associated Press
ATLANTA — As Aaron Rodgers trotted off the field, savoring another playoff win, he was serenaded with chants of “Go, Pack, Go!” This wasn’t Lambeau Field, but it sure sounded like it. Looking very much at home, Rodgers threw three touchdown passes, ran for another score and led the Green Bay Packers to their second straight postseason road victory with a stunning 48-21 rout of the top-seeded Atlanta Falcons on Saturday night. “This just feels so good right now,” said Rodgers, who threw for 366 yards and led Green Bay to the highestscoring playoff game in its storied history. The Packers (12-6) will have to win one more on the road to complete their improbable run from sixth seed to the Super Bowl, but nothing looks out of the question the way Rodgers is playing. He’ll lead Green Bay into the NFC championship game at either Chicago or Seattle next weekend. “This probably was my best performance -- the stage we were on, the importance of this game,” Rodgers said. “It was a good night.” He completed 31 of 36 passes and put up more yards than Brett Favre — the guy he replaced in Green Bay — ever threw for in a playoff game.
The Associated Press
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (12) celebrates after scoring a touchdown against the Atlanta Falcons on a 7-yard run during the second half of Saturday’s NFL playoff game in Atlanta. After knocking off Michael Vick and the Eagles in Philadelphia, then dominating Matt Ryan and the Falcons in Atlanta, Rodgers is creating his own legacy in Titletown USA. Green Bay scored 35 consecutive points, including Tramon Williams’ 70-yard interception return on the final play of the first half that left the Falcons (13-4) and a crowd of more than 69,000 in a state of shock as the teams headed to the locker room. The Packers could’ve left punter Tim Masthay at home. He was never needed. “It was one of those
nights,” Rodgers said. “I felt like I was in the zone.” Ryan, who beat out Rodgers for a spot in the Pro Bowl, had a miserable night. He also was picked off in the end zone, costing Atlanta another scoring chance early on that might’ve changed the complexion of the game, and lost a fumble attempting a sneak. In two career playoff games, Matty Ice is 0-2 with six turnovers and a safety.
Antonio Brown on a 58-yard pass play on third-and-19, and Rashard Mendenhall scored from the 2 with 1:33 remaining to give the Pittsburgh Steelers a 31-24 comeback victory over the Baltimore Ravens in an AFC divisional playoff game Saturday. The Steelers, 9-0 against division teams in the playoffs, advance to their fifth AFC championship game in 10 seasons next Sunday — at New England if the Patriots beat the Jets today, in Pittsburgh if the Jets win.

Victory in community From sprout of idea to parcel of land, PA sponsors garden
By Diane Urbani de la Paz
Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Any way you slice this vegetable garden, it’s good nourishment. That’s how Richard Bonine, Port Angeles’ recreation manager, thinks of the new Victory Garden on East Fifth Street at Peabody Street. The 1,400-square-foot parcel of city-owned land, which volunteers will turn into 50 community garden plots Monday, “is what I consider a win-win situation” for the city and for local residents who rent growing space, Bonine said. The garden patch will have its groundbreaking from 10 a.m. to sundown Monday, as organizer Diane Martin and a team of AmeriCorps volunteers throw a work party. They will be double-digging the soil to prepare it for springtime planting of vegetables, herbs and flowers chosen by plot holders. “Bring your tools and come any time,” Martin said. Monday is Martin Luther King Jr. Day and a national day of service, so she’s hoping to see a healthy turnout of people, shovels and enthusiasm. The forecast is calling for

The Fifth Street site, however, is the first citysponsored community garden for this town. Bonine said he met Martin at a community meeting awhile back, realized they shared an interest in such a project, “and the idea grew from there.” They realized they both wanted to get a community garden started; Bonine had access to the land, and Martin had access to volunteers with the energy to transform it from a plain grass lot to an urban farm. Such connections are “the good thing about living in a small town,” said Bonine, who grew up in Garber, Okla., population 818, according to www.epodunk. com.

Albino birds splash of color in study ARE PARTIALLY ALBINO (leucistic) birds as rare as some institutions and individuals state? Is there a regional influence? From the number of reports and photographs this column receives, I get the feeling this condition is more prevalent than we think. Maybe the Northwest has more leucistic birds than other parts of the country. Perhaps digital cameras and the Internet are coloring established information. You can glean information from all over the country and back it up with photographs at a rate of speed hard to imagine just a decade or two ago. How many people who feed birds encounter a leucistic, or partially albino, bird? Albinism is a genetic mutation that prevents the production of melanin in the body. An allwhite bird with pink skin and pink eyes is a true albino. A leucistic bird has some color, but it has patches of white on parts of its body and even this takes two forms. There are pale leucistic birds and pied leucistic birds. In the former, the melanin has been reduced uniformly, and in the latter, it is randomly lacking on parts of the bird. This winter, a black-capped chickadee at our feeders has been driving me crazy. I want a photograph of this pied leucistic bird. We have had black-capped chickadees colored like this several times. They are beautiful,

but I want this particular Carson bird’s photograph as a companion to one we took of another “different” chickadee that arrived this fall. That bird forced me into studying the subject of leucism again, but this time, I also researched melanism in birds. The chestnut-backed chickadee in question has more brown on it than is normal. The brown creeps up and almost covers its white cheeks. Splashes of more brown are spattered on what should be a white breast. If I could ever get this pair side by side on the feeder, the photograph would be terrific. Leucism is genetic, but it prevents what melanin there is from being deposited on the bird’s feathers in a normal manner. Melanism occurs in birds that have an abnormal or large amount of melanin. They can be brown, black or a mixture of both. Our chickadee is a mixture of colors, and it appears that the brown is taking over its normal coloring. Perhaps it should be referred to as a pied melanistic bird. This subject may seem confusing, but it is very interesting, and especially interesting is what
A melanistic chickadee, perching on a feeder, has more brown than normal, splashes of which are on a breast that should be white. seems to be an increasing number of birds with color abnormalities. Melanistic birds still appear to be quite rare, but it seems that leucistic birds are being seen more often. Could that eventually occur with the melanistic birds? Accepted knowledge states that their condition is genetically controlled, but the website of the Royal Society for the Protection
of Birds in the U.K. noted that a bird on a diet rich in hempseed can turn black. The high oil content in the seed is responsible. Black sunflower seeds have a high oil content, and chestnutbacked chickadees (and many other species) love them. Will melanism show up more frequently as the decades roll on? Or did the bird that showed up in our yard come from an area where hemp is grown?
There are many unanswered questions about birds, and some of them lead to some interesting answers. That’s one of the reasons birds are so fascinating.

Nursing home brings relief to daughter DEAR ABBY: My 92-year-old mother is the most hateful woman you have ever met. My husband and I took her into our home because she could no longer care for herself. She immediately took over everything, telling us what to do, being demanding and complaining that nothing was ever right. She tried to discipline my well-behaved kids, ages 15 and 21. She attempted to treat them the way she treated us, using foul language, hitting and verbally abusing. My husband and kids have called me at work saying I need to get home immediately because Mother was out of control. We told her we’d cook her meals because she could no longer use the oven.
Dear Guilt-ridden: Probably because she was We mod- modeling behavior she Abigail Van Buren eled appro- learned from her own mother and possibly priate examples of because she is demented.

If she’s able to be moved, kindly grandma and partake her out for a meal. ent that many children When she’s gone, you, have? Guilt-Ridden unlike your siblings, will in Tustin, Calif. have nothing to regret.
Dear Abby: My son “Rob” and his fiancee invited me to join them at a dinner his father and stepmother, “Jane,” are hosting. Rob’s grandmother, brother and sister-in-law will be there, as well as Jane’s two sons. I love them all and thought they loved me. Apparently, Jane doesn’t want me to attend. No reason was given. I was shocked. Jane and my ex were always welcomed in my home and life. I wished them well when they married after dating for 20 years. Jane’s children have spent the night in my home. I took care of them for several days after a hurricane. I even flew her youngest son to join Rob and me at a theme park.
Now, when I look back, I realize Jane never reciprocated. Rob and I are heartbroken. He wants nothing to do with Jane and doesn’t want her at his wedding. He’s furious with his dad for letting Jane make the rules. Rob doesn’t want to attend their dinner. Abby, I am sick that I have apparently caused a rift in the family. Please tell me how to deal with this. Stupefied in the South Dear Stupefied: Take the high road and encourage Rob to attend the dinner. This is Jane’s party, and as the hostess, it was her privilege to invite you — or not. Rob should not have assumed that he could dictate her guest list. While you have done
everything you can to be a friend to Jane and have one large, happy extended family, she may feel competitive toward you. Or she may regard you as a chapter in her husband’s life that she would prefer to be closed. Regard it as a reflection on her and her own insecurities. Be smart, take your cue from this and step back. As to Jane attending Rob’s wedding — if he wants his dad there, he may have to accept her presence. But that decision is Rob’s to make. Do not allow yourself to be dragged into it.
Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Letters can be mailed to Dear Abby, P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069 or via e-mail by logging onto www.dearabby.com.

and grow this coming spring and summer. So please, think about it carefully. Are you pleased with all your plants? Are they in the right spot and the right size for the area? The best pruning is by far the right plant in the right spot. Perhaps the best thing is to prune it away by moving it away. And don’t forget crying “timber” works as the most efficient and correct pruning for many situations, then capitalize on the weather and plant anew. Winter is on your transplanting side.

into your cedar shake and vinyl siding? Transplanting is ideal now for a variety of reasons, foremost the weather. Because, as you may have noticed of late, it is cold. The cold means plants are dormant or semi-dormant and thus will not stress under normal transplanting conditions. They are not transpiring either, their leaves having been shed months earlier; needles are dormant or semi-dormant. The sun is low, and there’s no searing heat to dehydrate or stress out the plants. The rain, sleet, drizzle and snow for weeks and months on end are precisely why the earlier you plant/transplant, the better for the plant because it is watered in and settled that much longer. They root in as well because major root production occurs now; the longer the plant can root in, the better it will take off

Relay For Life
A kickoff rally was held Saturday for the upcoming 23rd annual Relay For Life event to formally set up all the many volunteer committees to put together another fundraising event for the American Cancer Society. Committee members are, from left, Paige Boyer, Kirby Uranich, Alison Maxwell, Emily Harrington, Debra West (with symbolic relay baton) as the event chair, Kate O’Claire, Tami Brothers, Brain Linson, Beth Bugher and Jamie Sage. The event is scheduled for June 1 through 11 at the Clallam County Fairgrounds. The total funds collected last year of $57,000 were down a little from the record $75,000 of 2009. The group is urging former teams and new teams to be formed to help in this worldwide cancer drive. There are just over 5,100 such 24-hour events held across America each year, such as this one in Clallam County. The Relay For Life program was started in Tacoma back in 1986, and the theme is “Celebrate. Remember. Fight Back.” To sign up for a team, phone Sage at 360-477-7673.

in the form of cut-out hearts, folded paper with a note, drawings and the like. Envelopes are not necessary. As these service people are confined to hospitals and care facilities, it is requested that glitter not be used in the decoration of cards. It is also requested that a return response from the veterans not be requested, as the nature of their injury or illness may preclude them from responding. These Valentines may be brought to the Drennan & Ford Funeral Home and Crematory office at 260 Monroe Road from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday until Feb. 1. For more information, phone 360-457-1210 or by e-mail at info@drennan ford.com. Drennan & Ford will then package them for distribution. For more information, visit www.drennanford. com.
Eco-group sues over fire lookout The Associated Press
DARRINGTON — A Montana environmental group is suing the U.S. Forest Service over the construction of a new fire lookout in the Glacier Peak Wilderness Area northeast of Seattle. The group, Wilderness Watch, claimed in the federal lawsuit that the Forest Service violated the National Environmental Policy Act when it built the new $50,000 lookout on Green Mountain in 2009. The building replaced a lookout built in the 1930s and long used for wilderness management and as a rest stop for hikers. Wilderness Watch said the Forest Service didn’t study the environmental consequences before building the new lookout, and the use of a helicopter and power tools in the construction also violated the act. It wants the structure removed. “It’s supposed to be free of structures, free of motor vehicle use,” said the group’s executive director, George Nickas. “Everybody wants it their way. The hikers don’t want
the loggers or the miners or the off-road vehicle folks. “You can’t expect your pet use to be OK, when the Wilderness Act is designed for us to step back and let it truly be a wild place.” The Herald newspaper of Everett reported that the lawsuit has angered hiking groups in the region. They promote the history of fire lookouts in the region and believe the buildings help people appreciate the wilderness. Forest Service personnel declined to comment, but longtime Glacier Peak Wilderness volunteers Mike and Ruth Hardy of south King County told the newspaper that the lawsuit threatens the work of those trying to preserve the history of the iconic fire lookouts. Darrington Ranger District wilderness and trails coordinator Gary Paull said the Green Mountain Lookout is used by paid staff and volunteers to manage the wilderness. The lookout has not been formally used for fire detection since the late 1980s, but volunteers often are able to report lightning strikes from the lookout.

Clallam teen court visits New Orleans to study law Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Clallam County Teen Court members went to New Orleans last month to study Napoleonic Code law with Bernette Johnson, an associate justice of the Louisiana Supreme Court. Students were given a tour of the courthouse in New Orleans, which was built around 1804, and allowed to read and touch books dating back to 1547, when Louisiana was a colony of Spain, and books rel-
evant to the Louisiana Purchase, which brought Louisiana into the United States as a territory in 1803. The bar exam and practice of civil law in Louisiana are significantly different from other states. The state draws on its colonial inheritance, in which the adopted civil code is based on the Napoleonic Code of France and further influenced by Spanish laws. Teen Court members and adult advisers also participated in a teen court in
Lafayette, La., and visited Angola State Prison in Tunica, La. Said Danetta Rutten of Clallam County Juvenile and Family Services and one of the teen court adult advisers: “Each year Teen Court picks an area of law in the United States to study and participate in an educational experience that would involve them at some point in today’s setting. “Teen Court kids raise all funds each year to make these trips possible.”

Astrologist Linda Zlotnick talks about the shifting astrology signs in her office in St Paul, Minn. A drawing of the constellation Ophiucus, the Serpent Bearer, is at upper right. By Jocelyn Noveck The Associated Press
Sofia Whitcombe began her day with the startling realization that she might not be exactly who she thought she was. “My whole life, I thought I was a Capricorn,” the 25-year-old publicist said. “Now I’m a Sagittarius? I don’t feel like a Sagittarius!” It felt, she said, like a rug had been pulled from under her feet. “Will my personality change?” she mused. “Capricorns are diligent and regimented, and super-hard-working like me. “Sagittarians are more laid back. This is all a little off-putting.” Countless people reacted on social networks Friday to the “news” that the stars have shifted alignment, astrologically speaking. No matter that the astronomy instructor who started it all in a weekend newspaper interview said it was an old story — very old; 2,000 years old, actually — and that astrologists were insisting it wouldn’t change a thing. The story had traveled around the blogosphere like, well, a shooting star. Some people seemed angry. “I believe it’s a zodiac scam,” said Jose Arce, 38, from Fort Lee, N.J., who runs a body shop.
What’s your (new) sign?
“I’ve known myself to be a Sagittarius, I believe, since I was born. “So to come up now with some new sign? It’s unacceptable!” But others weren’t so ready to curse the stars. Kathy Torpey always felt like she was “a Scorpio trapped in a Sagittarian body” — emotional and creative, she said, more than competitive and intellectual like Sagittarians. So on Friday, even though she pays little heed to horoscopes, Torpey said she was thrilled to discover that she may have always been a Scorpio, after all. “You have no idea what relief and joy I felt after hearing the wonderful news of the zodiac changes,” wrote the 43-year-old mother of two from Willow Grove, Pa., in an e-mail, tongue-in-cheek to be sure. “Up until now, I felt like my whole life has been a lie!”
Big reaction Astrologers across the country reported a wave of calls, e-mails or website hits from concerned clients. “People are more attached and loyal to their signs than they thought,” said Eric Francis, editor of PlanetWaves.net, who said he had had 25,000 hits on his site since midnight. Turn

Facebook used to get to women’s nude photos By Don Thompson
The Associated Press
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — In a cautionary tale for users of socialnetworking sites, a California man has admitted using personal information he gleaned from Facebook to hack into women’s e-mail accounts, then send nude pictures of them to everyone in their address book. The California attorney general’s office said Friday that George Bronk, 23, commandeered the e-mail accounts of dozens of women in the U.S. and England. He then scanned the women’s “sent” folders for nude and seminude photos and videos and forwarded any he found to all the women’s contacts, prosecutors said. Bronk coerced one woman into sending him more explicit photographs by threatening to distribute the pictures he already had. One victim told authorities the intrusion felt like “virtual rape.”
Bronk, who lives in the Sacramento suburb of Citrus Heights, pleaded guilty Thursday to seven felonies in Sacramento County Superior Court, Bronk including computer intrusion, false impersonation and possession of child pornography. Prosecutors are seeking a sixyear prison term when Bronk returns for a sentencing evaluation March 10. His attorney, Monica Lynch of Roseville, called her client a “23-year-old boy going on 15.” “He’s accepted full responsibility. It’s a tragic situation,” she said. Lynch said she will argue for less than a six-year sentence. Bronk began his hacking in
December 2009, prosecutors said. He will have to register as a sex offender because of his guilty plea.
Got account control Prosecutors said Bronk would scan women’s Facebook accounts looking for those who posted their e-mail addresses. He would then study their Facebook postings to learn the answers to common security questions like their favorite color or father’s middle name. He contacted the women’s e-mail providers and used the information to gain control of their accounts. He also often gained control of their Facebook accounts by hijacking their passwords, then posted compromising photographs on their Facebook pages and other Internet sites. Turn

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration Friday announced the most wide-ranging liberalization of travel and money-sending regulations to Cuba in more than a decade, making it easier for U.S. students and religious and cultural groups to visit the Communist-ruled island. It will still not be possible for ordinary U.S. tourists to vacation legally in Cuba, which has been under a U.S. economic embargo for 48 years.
But members of educational, cultural and religious groups will be able to get licenses for travel more readily. In addition, the new regulations will permit Americans to provide money to Cuban churches and small businesses. Previously, such remittances could be sent only by Cuban Americans to their relatives. The plan will let any American send as much as $500 every three months to Cuban citizens who are not part of the Castro administration and are not members of the Communist Party. Also, more airports will be allowed to offer charter service. Now, only three airports

That will be expanded to any international airport with proper customs and immigration facilities as long as licensed travel agencies ask to run charters from the airport. The White House press office sent out a release saying Obama had directed the changes, which do not need congressional approval. They will be put in place within two weeks. Supporters praised the announcement as a major step in promoting greater contact between U.S. and Cuban civil society. The regulations would be similar to those put in place by the administration
of President Clinton and rolled back under President George W. Bush. Critics said the changes will not improve the lives of Cubans. U.S. Rep. Ileana RosLehtinen, R-Fla., and the House Foreign Affairs Committee chair, said: “Loosening these regulations will not help foster a pro-democracy environment in Cuba — these changes will not aid in ushering in respect for human rights. “And they certainly will not help the Cuban people free themselves from the tyranny that engulfs them. “These changes undermine U.S. foreign policy and security objectives and will bring economic benefits to the Cuban regime.”

Divers don’t give up the 1811 ship Wreck said to be that of naval hero By Michelle R. Smith The Associated Press
PROVIDENCE, R.I. — A team of divers say they’ve discovered the remains of the USS Revenge, a ship commanded by U.S. Navy hero Oliver Hazard Perry and wrecked off Rhode Island in 1811. Perry is known for defeating the British in the 1813 Battle of Lake Erie off the shores of Ohio, Michigan and Ontario in the War of 1812 and for the line “I have met the enemy, and they are ours.” His battle flag bore the phrase “Don’t give up the ship,” and to this day is a symbol of the Navy. The divers, Charles Buffum, a brewery owner from Stonington, Conn., and Craig Harger, a carbon dioxide salesman from Colchester, Conn., said the wreck changed the course of history because Perry likely would not have been sent to Lake Erie otherwise. Jan. 9 was the 200th anniversary of the wreck. Buffum said he’s been interested in finding the
“It was just thrilling,” Harger said.

Since then, they have found four more 42-inchlong cannons, an anchor, canister shot, and other metal objects that they say they’re 99 percent sure Oliver Hazard Perry were from the Revenge. Navy commodore Buffum and Harger say the items fit into the time remains of the Revenge period that the Revenge ever since his mother several years ago gave him the sank, the anchor appears to be the main one that is book Shipwrecks on the known to have been cut Shores of Westerly. loose from the ship, and The book includes Perthat no other military ry’s account of the wreck, ships with cannons have which happened when it been recorded as sinking in hit a reef in a storm in heavy fog off Watch Hill in the area.

2010 logged wettest, among hottest on globe By Justin Gillis
The New York Times
WASHINGTON — New government figures for the global climate show that 2010 was the wettest year on record, and it tied 2005 as the hottest year since record-keeping began in 1880. The new figures confirm that 2010 will go down as one of the more remarkable years in the annals of climatology. It featured prodigious snowstorms that broke seasonal records in the United States and Europe; a recordshattering summer heat wave that scorched Russia; strong floods that drove people from their homes in places such as Pakistan, Australia, California and Tennessee; a severe die-off of coral reefs; and a continuation in the global trend of a warming climate. Two agencies, NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, reported last week that the global average surface temperature for 2010 had tied the record set in 2005.
The analyses differ slightly: In the NOAA version, the 2010 temperature was 1.12 degrees Fahrenheit above the average for the 20th century, which is 57 degrees. It was the 34th year running that global temperatures have been above the 20th-century average; the last below-average year was 1976. The new figures show that nine of the 10 warmest years on record have occurred since 2001.
Greenhouse gases Earth has been warming in fits and starts for decades, and most climatologists say that is because humans are releasing heat-trapping gases such as carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. The carbon-dioxide level has increased about 40 percent since the Industrial Revolution. “The climate is continuing to show the influence of greenhouse gases,” said David Easterling, a scientist at NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, N.C.
Aside from NASA and NOAA, another agency, a research center in Britain, compiles a global temperature record. That unit has yet to report its figures for 2010. (The data sets are compiled by slightly different methods, and in the British figures, the previous warmest year on record was 1998.) The United States was wetter and hotter last year than the average values for the 20th century, but overall the year was not as exceptional in this country as for the world as a whole. In the contiguous U.S., for instance, the NOAA figures showed that it was the fourth-hottest summer on record and the 23rd hottest year. Still, some remarkable events occurred at a regional scale, including snowstorms in February 2010 that shattered seasonal records in cities like Washington, Baltimore and Philadelphia. In the summer, a heat wave broke records in the South and along much of the East Coast.

If the Navy does not, they said they hope to raise the money for a salvage operation so the artifacts can be displayed at a historical society. They say they are concerned now that they are going public that other divers might try to remove objects from the site, which is a violation of the law. Many of the objects they found are in only 15 feet of water, although the area is difficult to dive because of currents, they said. As for whether the wreck of the Revenge changed the course of history, David Skaggs, a professor emeritus of history at Bowling Green

Seniors may pay for Medicare home health The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Medicare recipients could see a sizable new out-ofpocket charge for home health visits if Congress follows through on a recommendation issued by its own advisory panel. Until now, home health visits from nurses and other providers have been free to patients. But the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission says a co-payment is needed to discourage overuse of a service whose cost to taxpayers is nearing $20 billion a year amid concerns that fraudsters are also taking advantage. The panel did not prescribe an amount, but a suggested charge of $150 for a series of related visits is being discussed. Medicare requires co-pays for many other services, so home health has been the exception, not the rule. Defying opposition by AARP, the seniors’ lobby, the congressionally appointed commission voted 13-1 last week to recommend that lawmakers impose the new charge. Two commissioners abstained and one was absent. “At the extreme, this benefit can turn into a long-term- care social-support system,” said commission Chairman Glenn Hackbarth. “A modest co-payment is one tool to
help deal with that problem.” More than 3 million seniors and disabled people on Medicare use home health services: visits from nurses, personal-care attendants and therapists, available to those who can’t easily get out of the house. Home health was once seen as a cost saver, because it’s cheaper than admitting patients to the hospital. But it has been flagged as a budget problem because of rapidly increasing costs and big differences in how communities around the country use the benefit. Part of the problem appears to be rampant fraud. In some counties, home health admissions exceed the number of residents on Medicare. Several commissioners said they worried about the impact of a new charge on seniors with modest incomes. Studies have shown that even small co-payments can discourage patients from getting medical services. The charge would be collected for each home health-agency admission, not for every visit by a nurse or provider. Patients can be under home health care for weeks at a time. The recommendation exempts lowincome patients, whose co-payments would be covered by Medicaid, and those just discharged from the hospital.

SEATTLE — Federal authorities have sued a northwest Washington dairy that they claim has a long history of selling cows for slaughter even though their tissues contained drug residues deemed unsafe to eat. The 850-cow Rhody Dairy LLC of Sumas was charged civilly in U.S. District Court in Seattle last week with violations of the federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. The complaint said that seven times in the past decade, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has issued letters to the dairy warning that cows it offered for sale tested positive for illegal levels of antibiotics, anti-inflammatory medications or other drugs. The Justice Department said that despite the warnings, the dairy administered the drugs to its cattle in unapproved dosages or without prescriptions, or that it failed to observe proper drug withdrawal times before offering the

An example of the ‘linten’ season?
Ripley Entertainment Inc. (2)/via The Associated Press
northern Michigan woman has put her own spin on Leonardo da Vinci’s “The Last Supper” by making a replica out of laundry lint. Laura Bell of the town of Roscommon collected lint from her dryer and fashioned it into a 14-foot-long, 4-foot tall reproduction of the Italian Renaissance painter’s masterpiece. Bell says she needed about 800 hours to do enough laundry to get the lint, and 200 hours to recreate the mural. She bought towels of the colors she wanted and laundered them separately to get the right shades of lint. Her artwork has caught the eye of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! The company plans to put it on display at one of its museums. Ripley’s says it also has Last Supper replicas made from a grain of rice, a dime and burned toast.
High-tech virtual border ‘fence’ halted By Julia Preston
scouting for illegal border crossers and drug traffickers. Napolitano’s decision brought a longexpected close to a project carried out by Boeing under Napolitano a contract first signed in 2005 under President George W. Bush. The announcement came in advance of the expiration of the Boeing contract Tuesday, a Homeland Security official said. Boeing noted that officials said they would continue to use equipment it had designed.
The New York Times
WASHINGTON — The Department of Homeland Security on has canceled a project to build a technology-based “virtual fence” across the U.S.-Mexico border, saying the effort — on which $1 billion has been spent — was ineffective and too costly. Janet Napolitano, the Homeland Security secretary, said Friday she had decided to end the five-year project, known as SBINet, because it “does not meet current standards for viability and cost effectiveness.” She said border agents would instead use less-expensive technology that is already part of their surveillance equipment, tailoring it to the terrain where they will be
The contract had been plagued by schedule delays and cost overruns. Originally estimated to cost more than $7 billion to cover the 2,000-mile length of the border, it was the subject of more than a dozen scathing reports by the Government Accountability Office. In a pilot program in Arizona, it cost about $1 billion to build the system across 53 miles of the state’s border. Officials said the new approach, using mobile surveillance systems and unmanned drones already in the Border Patrol’s arsenal, would cost less than $750 million to cover the remaining 323 miles of Arizona’s border. Napolitano suspended financ-
ing for the project in March and ordered a review, which was just completed. But officials moved slowly to cancel the project because it had been ensnared in the contentious debate over border security.
Border Patrol increase Many Republican lawmakers have accused the Obama administration of being lax on enforcement, and they said they would not consider an overhaul of immigration laws that President Obama supports until the border is tighter. Anticipating criticism, Homeland Security officials released documents Friday showing big increases in Border Patrol — from
10,000 agents in 2004 to 20,500 today — and other border agents, and a steep decline in the number of immigrants detained at the border, indicating fewer illegal crossings. About 463,000 illegal crossers were detained last year, compared with 724,000 in 2008. Napolitano said she had concluded the original concept of the project, to develop a single technology that could be used across the entire border, was not viable. Boeing had built a complex system of sensors, radars and cameras mounted on towers that was supposed to lead border agents to the exact location of illegal crossers. But the system functioned inconsistently in the rough terrain along much of the border.

Perspectives of three Peninsula women Photos
and interviews by
This week’s question: How close are we to equality for women and men? “This is still an issue, even with Hillary Clinton being an advocate of equal pay for equal work, but it’s not really happening. I have seen that younger women get hired more often than older ones. Older women are treated with more un-politeness. Men in general, though, are treating women with more respect. Again, I’ve seen lots of single older women, like myself, not being treated equally in trying to get a job. That’s why I don’t have a job currently. That’s my ax to grind.”
“Not very. People like to think things are nearly equal, but they’re not. Men are still running the show, as in political and business areas. Women are still trying to catch up. It is getting closer, but it’s not equal yet. That’s just my personal opinion and observations.”
“From my experience, we are almost equal. Men, though, can get up higher on the success ladder than women can. I’ve also seen differences in pay in certain situations. I have been homeschooled, and men have treated me fairly. We’re treated a lot better than in the past. I have studied about suffragists recently in college, so I would say we have come a long way to today’s level of equality.”

Former daytime actress takes up microphone in Sequim radio drama By Diane Urbani for
he’s coquettish but not coy, a show-businesswoman delighted to switch from daytime television to nighttime radio. Shelley Taylor, whose satin tones will be heard in tonight’s premiere of “Adrian Cross, For Hire: The Schooner Mystic Rose” on KSQM-FM 91.5 and www.ksqmfm.com, revamped her life six years ago. She left Hollywood behind and, contrary to her expectations, found a new kind of warmth among the people of the far north. These days she’s feeling quite settled in. And Taylor starts a conversation with a reporter in a way few actors will. “I’m 60,” she proclaims. Then Taylor unabashedly declares herself “a great proponent of plastic surgery,” who had a nose job at 12 and a pre-emptive face lift at 45. When she and her husband, Greg Taylor — whom she calls “Monsieur Greg” now that he dyes her hair fiery red — departed California, they were looking for a place to cocoon. Shelley Taylor plays Christine Hale, the 25-year-old love interest in the “Adrian Cr KSQM-FM and online outside the listener area at www.ksqmfm.com.
He’d worked as a carpenter and photographer for clients such as Playboy while she appeared on “General Hospital” and “Days of Our Lives” in the 1980s and hosted “Pure Soap” in the ’90s. But they’d had more than enough of Los Angeles life, and one day ducked into a Barnes & Noble and found a book about the Olympic Peninsula. The couple moved up, first to a rental in Discovery Bay, in April 2004. After attending a homebuilding and remodeling show at Sequim High School, they met a real
estate agent who showed them an irresistible piece of land west of Sequim. They broke ground in April 2005 on what’s to be a 3,100-square-foot home. The Taylors expected to get away from it all, to a house she considers a work of art. “My incredible husband has built 85 percent-plus of this home with his own hands; otherwise we couldn’t afford it,” she notes. But in the meantime, friends happened. “We didn’t think we were going to make any,” Taylor says.
She had, after all, grown up in Southern California’s metropolis, but people in and around Sequim befriended the pair.
Busy social life Their social life is more vigorous than it ever was in California, Taylor says; they count among their friends retired policemen, engineers, even fellow actors. About the time the couple relocated, a friend from Los Angeles also moved to Port Angeles. Judie Rich, who worked as a personal chef in Southern Califor-
nia, has known Taylor since they were 12, and later got into gourmet food while cooking for her friends. “There is never a dull moment” with Taylor, Rich says. The two have been through plenty together; Rich said Taylor has been a smart guide through life. Today, they enjoy “just simple things,” like sharing meals and taking long walks. Soon after moving to Washington state, Taylor began talking taxes with her neighbors and friends. Retirees told her how their property taxes were leaping skyward, even as their incomes
stayed fixed. In November 2005, Taylor organized a meeting, in which she, the leader of the new Property Owners for Predictable Tax Now, called for a 1-percent limit to property tax increases statewide.
Packed clubhouse The meeting packed the Pioneer Park clubhouse in Sequim; Taylor remembers it as similar to the climax of “Field of Dreams,” when incoming car headlights stretch as far as the eye can see. Taylor worked with thenRep. Jim Buck on House
Joint Resolution 4214, which would have amended the state constitution and impose the 1 percent cap. The bill didn’t survive the 2006 Legislature, and Property Owners for Predictable Tax Now later disbanded. Taylor, however, has continued to speak out against what she believes is an unjust property tax system. Earlier this month, she gave a talk in opposition to the Port Angeles School District levy to the Port Angeles Business Association, and she’s been a prolific writer of letters to the editor and guest point-of-view columns in the Peninsula Daily News.
