SEQUIM — State regulators have issued a fine against a Sequim water company for $10,500, charging it with 105 violations including unauthorized services and billing practices. Owned by David Dorland of Seattle, Lowper Inc.’s water system serves seven customers on Elk Pass Road and Chelsamish Drive in Happy Valley. A violation was issued for each customer billing, Utilities and Transportation Commission officials said. Administrative Law Judge Gregory J. Kopta last Monday ordered Lowper to appear before the commission at 1:30 p.m. April 27 in Olympia to give testimony and evidence under oath regarding its operations. Kopta, on behalf of the commission, also ordered Lowper to bring documents including water service invoices or billings and customer notices regarding rates and services. The company has 15 days from Feb. 14 to pay the fine or request an appeal hearing.

The agency’s investigation found the water utility should have filed an initial tariff Oct. 4, 2009. “They haven’t registered their water company under the purview of the commission,” said commission spokeswoman Marilyn Meehan. “He should be registering with the commission and filing a price list.” Jim Ward, regulatory analyst with the commission, said the company had not filed a tariff, or price list, with the agency to show the rates the company is charging customers. The commission officials also said Dorland has maintained that the company was in the process of selling the water system to the Clallam County Public Utility District. Turn



‘In extreme slow motion’ Sole survivor recalls helicopter crash near LaPush By Paul Gottlieb

Peninsula Daily News

SITKA, Alaska — Coast Guard Lt. Lance Leone rescues people for a living. But he was alone, disoriented and bobbing in chilly waters off James Island the morning of July 7. Witnesses said the MH-60 Jay-

hawk rescue helicopter Leone was co-piloting had snagged in thick power cables strung from LaPush to James Island across the mouth of the Quillayute River and tumbled into the water upside-down. Leone’s survival vest allowed him to breathe underwater after his helicopter crashed, Leone told the Peninsula Daily News last week by phone from Coast Guard Air Station Sitka, where he is serving as the base safety officer. But his right collarbone was broken “like a seat belt injury,” his left arm and right leg were lacerated — and his three crewmates

were nowhere in sight, he said in his first interview since the incident. Leone shot off a flare and was rescued within five to 10 minutes by Quileute Marina Harbormaster Darryl Penn and fisherman Charles Sampson, who pulled him into their motor skiff. “I couldn’t have swam,” Leone said. “Like any accident, everything was in extreme slow motion. “It didn’t quite make sense to U.S. Coast Guard me at the time why I was the only Lt.

Aide planning tell-all about Sarah Palin ONE OF SARAH Palin’s trusted advisers is planning a tell-all memoir, drawing upon thousands of personal e-mails during his time with the former Alaska governor to paint what his agent calls an expose of the inner workings of her operation. Frank Bailey rose from a campaign volunteer to administration official and figure in the “Troo- Palin pergate” scandal that fixated the public’s attention during Palin’s vice-presidential bid in 2008. A preliminary draft of the unpublished book, tentatively called Blind Alle-

giance to Sarah Palin: A Memoir of our Tumultuous Years, was leaked to reporters, with excerpts making the rounds on the Internet. Ken Morris, a California-based writer who worked with Bailey on the manuscript, said in an e-mail that he, Bailey and co-writer Jeanne Devon did “tons of research” for the book, which still has no publisher. Devon, an Alaska blogger, is a frequent critic of Palin. The manuscript states that Palin, before resigning partway through her first term, wrote to Bailey and another aide, “I hate this damn job.” Once Palin’s friend, Bailey is now among those criticizing her. “Since leaving the Governor’s office, Frank has been forced to reconsider his actions on Palin’s behalf in terms of his deep Christian faith and his allegiance to her as the standard-bearer for the conservative causes he still champions,” the

Carol Mann Agency wrote in an e-mail.

Reggae singer trial A jury stopped its deliberations for the week in the federal drug trial of Grammy-winning reggae singer Buju Banton. After deliberating for most of Friday, the Tampa, Fla., jury could not reach a verdict. Jurors Banton will reconvene Tuesday. Courts are closed for Presidents Day. The 37-year-old Banton was on trial for conspiring with two other men in setting up a drug deal in December 2009. His album “Before the Dawn” won a Grammy on Sunday for best reggae album. This is Banton’s second trial; a jury deadlocked in his first trial last year. If convicted of all charges, he faces up to life in prison.

OLLIE MATSON, 80, a Hall of Fame running back who was once traded for nine players during his 14-year NFL career and won two medals at the 1952 Olympics, has died. Mr. Matson died Saturday of respiratory failure surrounded by family at his home in Los Angeles, his Mr. Matson nephew Art in 1954 Thompson III told The Associated Press. Thompson said Mr. Matson had been mostly bedridden for several years due to a form of dementia. He said Mr. Matson hadn’t spoken in four years. As a senior at the University of San Francisco, Mr. Matson led the nation in rushing yardage and touchdowns while leading the Dons to an undefeated season. He was the No. 1 pick of the Chicago Cardinals and third overall in the 1952 NFL draft, and went on to share rookie of the year honors with Hugh McElhenny of the 49ers. Mr. Matson played with the Cardinals from 1952-58 before being traded to the Los Angeles Rams for nine players. He made the cover of Sports Illustrated in 1957. He spent 1959-62 with the Rams, then played a single season for the Detroit Lions before finishing his career with Philadelphia from 1964-66. Matson was inducted

into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1972 and into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1976. He was a sixtime Pro Bowl selection, winning MVP of the 1956 game. He also made the AllPro team seven times. Matson earned a silver medal in the 1,600-meter relay and a bronze in the 400 meters at the 1952 Helsinki Olympics.


LAMAR FIKE, 75, a member of Elvis Presley’s famed inner circle called the “Memphis Mafia” who had a long career in the music industry, has died. Mr. Fike, who was suffering from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, died Jan. 21 at a hospital in the Dallas Mr. Fike suburb of Arlington, said his son, James Fike, 45, of Atlanta. “He did everything firstclass. He was very brilliant. He had a tremendous presence. When he walked in a room, he lit it up,” said David Stanley, Presley’s stepbrother, who first met Mr. Fike as a toddler. “He taught me so much about music, about life, about living life to the fullest,” he said. James Fike said his father held various roles with Presley, including as a lighting director, bodyguard

and managing Presley’s music publishing group. James Fike said his father, a great storyteller, would recall when Presley and the five-member “Memphis Mafia” would decide they needed a cheeseburger somewhere and hop on their plane to take them to whatever city they chose.

__________ PERRY MOORE, 39, a co-producer of “The Chronicles of Narnia” films and author, has died in New York City. Police said Mr. Moore was found unconscious in the bathroom of his Manhattan apartment Thursday morning. Doctors couldn’t save him. Police said no foul play was suspected. Mr. Moore was also the author of a 2007 novel called Hero about a gay teenager with superpowers. The novel won a Lambda Literary Award for best novel for young gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender children or adults.

Briefly: World Pirates hijack yacht with U.S. citizens aboard MOGADISHU, Somalia —An American couple that has sailed the world with a yacht full of Bibles was hijacked by Somali pirates, and the U.S. said Saturday it is assessing possible options. Pirates say the yacht will make landfall in Somalia today, which would reduce the chances of a fast rescue dramatically. A British sailing couple hijacked by pirates was held hostage in a stiflingly hot Somali region for more than a year. Pirates hijacked the yacht Quest on Friday, two days after a Somali pirate was sentenced to 33 years in prison by a New York court for the 2009 hijacking of the Maersk Alabama. That case ended in a spectacular rescue when Navy sharpshooters killed two pirates holding the ship’s captain, Richard Phillips. The Quest is the home of Jean and Scott Adam, a couple from California who has been sailing around the world since December 2004, according to a website the Adams keep. Two other Americans were also believed to be onboard.

8 killed in bank raid KABUL, Afghanistan — Gunmen wearing explosives vests stormed a bank in eastern Afghanistan on Saturday as government employees were waiting to be paid, killing at least eight people and wounding

scores of others in a standoff punctuated by deadly explosions. At least 48 people were being treated in the main hospital in Jalalabad, the site of the attack, hours after the midday siege on the Kabul Bank branch, said Interior Ministry spokesman Zemeri Bashary. Others had already been discharged. He said seven of the dead were Afghan police officers. Three others were also killed, he said, but investigators were trying to determine if two of them were the suicide attackers. President Hamid Karzai and NATO condemned the attack.

Cuba to free 7 people HAVANA — Cuba’s government has agreed to free seven more prisoners, the Roman Catholic Church announced Saturday. Six convicted of crimes against state security are bound for Spain, but a political prisoner who was freed said he plans to remain on the island and return to the independent reporting that led to his arrest. The releases continue a slow stream of prisoners who have been freed recently at the behest of the church, with most of them quickly sent into exile. But the new releases also included one of the men who has refused exile: Ivan Hernandez, an independent journalist who was among 75 people arrested in a major crackdown on dissidents in 2003. Inmates who had vowed to remain in Cuba have been the last to leave prison. The Associated Press

Tea party supporters rally off a wing of the State Capitol in Madison, Wis., on Saturday in support of the governor’s proposed budget bill.

70,000 protesters gather in Madison Both sides remain peaceful By Todd Richmond and Jason Smathers The Associated Press

MADISON, Wis. — A state Capitol thrown into political chaos swelled for a fifth day with nearly 70,000 demonstrators, as supporters of Republican efforts to scrap the union rights of state workers challenged pro-labor protesters face-to-face for the first time and GOP leaders insisted again Saturday there was no room for compromise. A few dozen police officers stood between supporters of Republican Gov. Scott Walker on the muddy east lawn of the Capitol and the much larger group of pro-labor demonstrators who surrounded them. The protest was peaceful as both sides exchanged chants of “Pass the bill! Pass the bill!” and “Kill the bill! Kill the bill!” “Go home!” union supporters yelled at Scott Lemke, a 46-yearold machine parts salesman from Cedarburg who wore a hard hat and carried a sign that read “If you don’t like it, quit” on one side, and “If you don’t like that, try you’re fired” on the other. The Wisconsin governor, elected in November’s GOP wave

“This is why you elected Scott Walker, and he’s doing his job. . . . Wisconsin is broke. My question for the other side is, ‘What part of broke don’t you understand?’” Nearby, nearly two dozen cabs blocked a major intersection near the Capitol. The driver of the lead cab leaned out of the window and played a trumpet, while others attempted to honk their car horns in sync with a chant from prolabor protesters: “This is what democracy looks like.”

that also gave control of the state Assembly and Senate to Republicans, set off the protests earlier this week by pushing ahead with a measure that would require government workers to contribute more to their health care and pension costs and largely eliminate their collective bargaining rights. He said the concessions are needed to deal with the state’s projected $3.6 billion budget shortfall and to avoid layoffs of government workers. ‘What democracy looks like’

Concessions needed “We did have an election, and Scott Walker won,” said Deborah Arndt, 53, of Sheboygan Falls. “I think our governor will stand strong. I have faith in him.” At a rally organized by Tea Party Patriots, the movement’s largest umbrella group, and Americans for Prosperity, supporters of Walker carried signs with a fresh set of messages: “Your Gravy Train Is Over . . . Welcome to the Recession” and “Sorry, we’re late Scott. We work for a living.” “We pay the bills!” tea party favorite Herman Cain yelled to cheers from the pro-Walker crowd.

“One of the reasons the company decided to support the protesters is because the members of this company started off striking their employer for better wages and that employer . . . refused to allow them to bargain collectively,” said John McNamara, the marketing director of Union Cab. Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald reaffirmed Saturday that Republicans have not been swayed by the pro-labor protesters who since Tuesday have filled the Capitol with chanting, drumbeats and anti-Walker slogans. “The bill is not negotiable,” Fitzgerald said inside a heavily guarded Senate parlor at the Capitol. “The bill will pass as is.”

Libya, Yemen crack down; Bahrain pulls back tanks By Maggie Michael and Brian Friedman The Associated Press

CAIRO — Security forces in Libya and Yemen fired on prodemocracy demonstrators Saturday as the two hard-line regimes struck back against the wave of protests that has already toppled autocrats in Egypt and Tunisia. At least 15 died when police shot into crowds of mourners in Libya’s second-largest city, a hospital official said. Even as Bahrain’s king bowed to international pressure and withdrew tanks to allow demonstrators to retake a symbolic square in the capital, Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi and Yemen’s Ali Abdullah Saleh made clear they plan to stamp out opposition and not be dragged down by the reform movements that have grown in nations from Algeria to

Djibouti to Jordan. Libyans returned to the street for a fifth straight day of protests against Gadhafi, the most serious uprising in his 42-year reign, despite estimates by human rights groups of 84 deaths in the North African country — with 35 on Friday alone. Saturday’s deaths, which would push the overall toll to 99, occurred when snipers fired on thousands of mourners in Benghazi, a focal point of unrest, as they attended the funerals of other protesters, a hospital official said. He spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisal. “Many of the dead and the injured are relatives of doctors here,” he told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. “They are crying, and I keep telling them to please stand up and help us.”

Earlier, special forces had attacked hundreds of demonstrators, including lawyers and judges, who were camped out in front of a courthouse in Benghazi, Libya’s second-largest city. Authorities also cut off the Internet across Libya, further isolating the country. Just after 2 a.m. local time in Libya, the U.S.-based Arbor Networks security company detected a total cessation of online traffic. Protesters confirmed they could not get online. Reports could not be independently confirmed. Information is tightly controlled in Libya, where journalists cannot work freely, and activists this week have posted videos on the Internet that have been an important source of images of the revolt. Other information about the protests has come from opposition activists in exile.

NEW JERSEY GOV. Chris Christie has cut more than the state budget his first year in office: The heavyset headof-state has also dropped a few notches in his belt. Exactly how much he’s lost he isn’t saying, but his suits have been getting noticeably baggy. “I’m not going to put any numbers on it because you just set yourself up for failure,” the 48-year-old Republican said. Christie credited his recent weight loss to working with a trainer three mornings a week — Wednesday, Friday and Saturday — and eating better. He started working with a trainer in June 2009, but for the past year said he has been more consistent.

STRONG WINDS, MILD temperatures and extremely dry conditions turned the mid-Atlantic region into a tinderbox Saturday, contributing to dozens of wildfires, snarling traffic and even toppling the National Christmas Tree. Maryland State Police shut down Interstate 95 in both directions in the Laurel area Saturday afternoon after a wildfire at a mulch plant jumped into the median of the highway. Prince George’s County firefighters were battling that blaze and several others, prompting Fire Chief Marc Bashoor to call every firefighter in the county to active duty and open the county’s emergency operations center.

CONFEDERATE DESCENDANTS AND re-enactors marched down the main avenue in Montgomery, Ala., on Saturday to mark the 150th anniversary of the inauguration of Confederate President Jefferson Davis. They started at a fountain where slaves were once sold, passed the church that Martin Luther King Jr. led during the Montgomery Bus Boycott and ended at the Capitol steps, where Alabama’s old and modern history often collide. It’s the spot where former Gov. George C. Wallace proclaimed “segregation forever” in 1963 and where King concluded the historic Selma-to-Montgomery voting rights march in 1965.

THE TUNISIAN GOVERNMENT and a long-banned Islamist party both denounced Saturday the grisly slaying of a Roman Catholic priest, while several hundred people gathered outside the French embassy in the capital to demand the recall of France’s new ambassador. The 34-year-old priest Marek Marius Rybinski was found Friday with his throat slit and stab wounds in the parking lot of the religious school in the Tunis suburb of Manouma. The slaying of the Polish priest was the first deadly attack on members of religious minorities since last month’s ouster of Tunisia’s longtime autocratic president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.

Tribe: ‘Not afraid to step out and make it happen’ Continued from A1

Key milestones of Jamestown S’Klallam tribe

The book explains why tribal citizens felt the need for federal recognition. As Oppenheimer and tribal leaders put it, the book “illuminates the historical data which was required to prove that the tribe met the seven criteria established by the federal government in order for any tribe to successfully earn full recognition.”

The following are excerpts from a time line found in the recently released booklet, Thirty Years and Time Immemorial: Commemorating the 30th Anniversary of the Official Recognition of the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe, 19812011:

15-year process The process took about 15 years to complete. “This book outlines what became possible as a result of recognition and highlights many of our key accomplishments and contributions to the local community over the past 30 years,” Tribal Council Treasurer Theresa R. Lehman said. The book includes an interview with Tribal Chairman and Chief Executive Officer W. Ron Allen, who shares his view of the future. The book documents the tribe’s progress, starting with an annual budget of $25,000 in 1981 to a 2010 budget of $24.5 million.

and books. The tribe also gave more than $250,000 in cash contributions in 2009 to the community, tribal leaders said, and the tribe offers space at its Blyn campus for civic events. The tribe purchased about two acres in Blyn where its first community center was located overlooking Sequim Bay. Today, it owns about 1,000 acres from the Miller Peninsula to Blyn to Sequim and Dungeness.

“In the short time, 30 years, it’s amazing what they’ve accomplished,” said Stan Speaks, Bureau of Indian Affairs regional director out of Portland, Ore.

The Associated Press

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — In one of the first episodes of the “Gold Rush: Alaska” Discovery Channel series, miners hoping to strike gold kill a bear near their camp. The killing was unwarranted, even though the shooter had a license and a non-resident black-bear tag, the state Department of Natural Resources said. In a letter to the mining company, the agency said the bear did not appear to be the same one that entered the camp earlier, and it was not in camp when it was killed, the Anchorage Daily News reported Friday. No one was cited for the May 2010 shooting at the

mining claim in southeast Alaska, about 40 miles north of Haines, but the miners were asked to act with more restraint and to properly store food so it does not attract bears. Discovery spokeswoman Katherine Nelson said the cable channel relies on its production companies to ensure compliance with all permits and regulations. “We are aware that the necessary permit was obtained,” she said in an e-mail. No one was available Friday at the production company, London-based Raw Television, to comment to The Associated Press. More than 2 million viewers learned in the episode’s debut that unattended graham crackers might have been to blame for luring the animal into

the combination mining claim and reality TV set before the miners grabbed their guns. “That bear’s not going to get in between my son and I,” Greg Remsburg, a star of the show, said as he pumped a shell into the chamber of his rifle. “That I guarantee ya.” Sure enough, a bear is killed, and the shooter is identified on the show as miner Mike Halstead. “The team has made the camp secure,” the narrator concludes. However, no one had to shoot the bear to save a life or protect property at the mining claim on Porcupine Creek, the state Department of Natural Resources concluded. “The bear that was shot did not appear to be the same bear that entered your

camp, and was not in camp when it was killed,” geologist Bill Cole wrote in the Jan. 5 letter to head miner Todd Hoffman. The series chronicles the work of six unemployed people who try to get rich in Alaska in the face of the national economic meltdown. Their ability to escape danger, including wildlife, is a repeating theme. Many Daily News readers panned the gold-mining show as misleading and sensationalized. “As they had already acquired a tag to shoot a bear, it appears to have been a phony confrontation designed to make the TV show more interesting,” Fairbanks Daily NewsMiner columnist Dermot Cole wrote. He is not related to the state geologist.

Lab tests awaited on swans found dead By Jeff Chew

Peninsula Daily News

SEQUIM — State Department of Fish & Wildlife biologists are awaiting the results of lab tests that could determine if dead trumpeter swans found in January in the Dungeness Valley were poisoned by ingesting lead shot. Fish & Wildlife investigators, meanwhile, still seek the person or people who shot and killed a trumpeter swan sometime in January. “Liver samples from all five birds from January were shipped off to the Washington Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory in Pullman, and we are awaiting the test results from them,” said Shelly Ament, wildlife biologist with state Fish & Wildlife on the Olympic Peninsula. Ament said after further investigation that it did not appear that the trumpeter swan she collected at a pond near Woodcock Road and west of Kitchen-Dick Road was shot within the week she found it.

Bird underweight She found the bird Jan. 31, after it was reported to her by a property owner. The swan that was shot weighed 13.66 pounds with a wingspan of 6½ feet. Normally, Ament said, a swan would weigh between 21 to 30 pounds. Trumpeter swans, the largest waterfowl in North America, are federally protected wildlife and cannot be hunted. “It is possible and very

likely that it was not shot at the particular place where it was found dead,” she said, adding that the bird could have been shot elsewhere and later flew to the pond to rest. The Mill Creek-based Trumpeter Swan Society is offering a reward of $500 to the person whose information leads to the arrest and conviction of the shooter or shooters, said Martha Jordan, a wildlife biologist with the society.

Contributing? If anyone wants to contribute to the fund, they may do so by sending a check to P.O. Box 272, 914 S.E. 164th St., Mill Creek, WA, 98012. Another swan was found at the same pond Jan. 28, but it had not been shot and possibly could have died from the ingestion of lead. Metal fragments were found in the X-ray of the bird, Ament said. There was not another swan nearby when she collected the dead swan Jan. 31 that was shot.

An eyrar of trumpeter swans graze in a carrot field leased by Nash’s Organic Produce off Clark Road in Dungeness early this month. Swans collected in January included three that died in the 3 Crabs Road area and two in a pond off Woodcock Road, east of KitchenDick Road.

dead swan was found at Dungeness Farms at Dungeness Bay. She said Matt Heins from Dungeness Farms Hunting Club assisted her with collecting one of the sick swans and one that later died. “The Dungeness Farms Hunting Club has shown serious concern about the death of the swans and has even offered to pay for the

Ex-assisted-living owner seeking a dismissal of case Woman was convicted of stealing $7,000 from a dementia patient By Tom Callis

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — The attorney for Rhonda Goudie, a former assisted-living facility owner convicted of stealing $7,000 from a patient with dementia, is seeking to have the case dismissed. Attorney Karen Unger filed a motion Feb. 7 in Clallam County Superior Court to dismiss the case — four months after Goudie was convicted of two counts of first-degree theft and one count of money laundering — over claims that the county Prosecuting Attorney’s Office has been much more lenient on other people charged with similar crimes. In her claim of selective prosecution, Unger cites three other cases, including two added to the motion Friday. Like the one against her client, the three cases involved people accused of embezzling money at the workplace. They are: ■  Teresa Lee Rodocker, charged last year with one count of first-degree theft and two counts of forgery for alledgedly stealing $7,217 Camp Fire USA Juan de Fuca Council while she was executive director. She agreed to participate in a 36-month diversion program last month in exchange for having the charges dropped and reimbursing the organization. ■  Karianne Marie Minks, charged with second-degree theft and forgery in 2008 for allegedly stealing $1,248 from the city of Port Angeles by forging her manager’s signature on city-issued pettycash receipts while acting as a volunteer for the Future Rider Cheerleaders. She also entered a diversion program that required her to perform community service and reimburse the city in exchange for charges being dropped. ■  Eva Lee Wolf, charged with the first-degree theft in 2008 of about $15,000 from Country Care Vet Services where she worked as the office manager. She accepted a plea offer that included no jail time but required her to reimburse the organization.

Prison time


oudie faces up to 10 years in prison for theft and 10 years for money laundering. Homecare, before she was charged in court. Williams, citing insufficient evidence, only convicted her of stealing $7,000 and acquitted her on four other counts of first-degree theft. “How can you do that [not seek prison time] with these other cases?” Unger asked. “How is she worse than these other cases?” County Prosecuting Attorney Deb Kelly called the motion “ridiculous.” “Ms. Unger has selective recollection, if you will, about cases or is making a selective comparison,” she said.

‘Selective recollection’ Kelly pointed to other similar cases in which the defendant was sentenced to prison. One case involved the former president of the Stevens Middle School Parent Teacher Organization, Timothy Derwent Walsh, who was sentenced to six months in jail for stealing $3,500 from the organization and attempting to steal an additional $12,069. He was sentenced last November after pleading guilty to one count of firstdegree theft and two counts of attempted first-degree theft. Goudie faces up to 10 years in prison for theft and 10 years for money laundering. Her standard sentencing range allows her to be sentenced to up to nine months in jail, but Judge Ken Williams has the authority to sentence her for a longer term since she was found to have violated a position of trust.

March 3 court date Unger’s motion to dismiss the case will be heard March 3. Her motion to dismiss the money laundering conviction on the basis of double jeopardy has not been heard in court. The state Department of Social and Health Services, which notified police of the overpayments, closed Olympic RN Homecare in June 2009.

PA’s $10 million check to stay uncashed for now Funds on hold due to appeal of sewage project By Tom Callis

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — City Hall was notified Friday that it will soon receive a big check from the state Department of Ecology — $10 million in low-interest loans to begin work controlling its sewage overflow problem. But because the project is being appealed by its opponents, that check will have to be left uncashed for now. Glenn Cutler, city public works and utilities director, said he can’t put the project out for bid until the appeal — filed by the Olympic Environmental Council and Port Angeles resident Tyler Ahlgren — is resolved. A request for bids was to be released in May or June. Cutler said he doesn’t expect to be able to do that for another six to eight months if the appeal makes its way to the state Shoreline Hearings Board. That will put work, expected to start this fall with the installation of new sewer lines, on hold and make it much more difficult to meet Ecology’s 2016 deadline for completion of the project, he said. “I’m disappointed that we can’t move forward on this project,” Cutler said. The project was ranked the highest out of the 17

Targeting sewers Since the environmental council intends to take the appeal that far anyway, the policy change would allow the appeal process to be finished sooner — and reduce the delay for awarding a bid on the project. Schanfald, a Sequim resident, said the group is appealing the project —

which would mainly involve using a nearly 5-milliongallon storage tank to temporarily store untreated effluent during overflow events — because it thinks the city should instead focus on removing stormwater from the sewers. Asked how that should be done, she said the city could merely fix leaks in the sewer pipes where ground water infiltrates and expressed doubt that the city even has a combined sewer, where stormwater and sewage both travel through the same pipe. “I don’t think it’s piped; I think it leaks in,” she said. “There isn’t a combined system. It’s the leaking.” Cutler acknowledged that ground water does leak into the sewer but said he was surprised to hear Schanfald claim the city doesn’t have a combined sewer and stormwater system through parts of town. “I am just absolutely amazed for her to make a statement that she doesn’t think we have a combined sewer overflow system or problem,” he said. City staffers have said about 30 percent of the city’s sewer system was designed to — and still does — carry stormwater. That stormwater causes the sewer system to overflow into Port Angeles Harbor

SNOQUALMIE — The Snoqualmie tribal council voted to write a $14 million check to buy out its casino CEO’s employment contract. At issue were lingering bad feelings festering for years over the firing of some tribal casino employees and disappointment over the casino’s slow start during


the recession, said Matt Mattson, tribal administrator. Michael Barozzi, whose last day was Friday, was regarded as a key member of the casino management team, singled out by tribal officials as the glue holding the operation together as they wooed investors for $330 million in financing to build and open the casino back in 2007. “We regard Michael Barozzi, our chief executive officer, as highly important to the success of Casino Snoqualmie. The loss of Mr. Barozzi’s services for any reason could adversely

affect us,” they warned in the offering memorandum to potential investors. Barozzi originally asked for a $19.5 million buyout, but the council balked, settling on the compromise of $14 million. “I think it is fair; it was the right thing to do to honor his agreement and service to the tribe instead of running him out of town,” Mattson said in an interview. “There were some members in the tribe and on the council that felt he wasn’t doing a good job. My personal feeling was the tribe should have left well enough

during heavy rainfall. Cutler said the combined sewer and stormwater system, built before the 1960s, is the major contributor to sewage overflows. Ahlgren said in an e-mail that he doesn’t think the city has a combined sewer but couldn’t be reached Saturday for additional comment. A stormwater project on First Street downtown, which will begin this week, will involve disconnecting some stormwater from the sewer system. That project is meant to offset the addition of sewage from the Lower Elwha Klallam reservation. The sewage overflow elimination project is anticipated to cost $40 million. It is being funded by lowinterest loans from the state that are being repaid by utility rate payers. The fee, started in 2005, is $14.95 per month. The city increases it every year by $2 plus the rate of inflation. It will continue increasing at that rate until 2015, when it is anticipated to reach $26.40 per month. The rate won’t expire for another 20 years.

granted the loans this year in the state. Darlene Schanfald, the environmental council’s Rayonier mill cleanup coordinator and representative on the appeal, said the group will take the issue to the state hearings board if necessary. That may come sooner than Cutler estimated since the City Council is considering a policy change that will end council-level appeals of conditional-use permits for development on the shoreline. The city’s Planning Commission approved such a permit, the focus of the appeal, for the project. The proposed policy, staff say, isn’t intended to target the appeal but rather is a way to fulfill the council’s desire to not hear appeals. But the move would result in the appeal being bumped to the state — after a review from Ecology.

alone, but ultimately, I don’t have a vote.” The vote, which was not unanimous, has sparked outrage among some tribal members, who say the council isn’t allowed to spend more than $2 million without the general membership’s approval. They filed an emergency injunction in tribal court in an attempt to block the payment. Mattson said he did not know what bearing the injunction has on the deal. Tribal attorney Pete Connick did not return calls for comment. It was not clear Friday if the payment already had been made. It is regarded as an expense of casino operations, and it is paid out of casino revenues. The buyout comes at a time when the tribe is struggling with other issues. Two council members are suspended and face criminal charges in tribal court, and the tribe has launched an enrollment audit in response to allegations that many tribal members don’t meet the one-eighth blood-quantum requirement in the tribe’s constitution to be Snoqualmie.

Other stores fill void left by PT Swain’s By Charlie Bermant Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — Monday is likely to be the last day that retailer Swain’s Outdoor will be open, though manager Grant Cable may be in the store sporadically after that time to sell the last remaining items by appointment. In the meantime, two other stores are gearing up to take some of the slack, with the greatest beneficiaries likely to be the Carhartt company and the people who wear its products. Both Henery’s Hardware in Port Townsend and Hadlock Building Supply have made plans to carry the Carhartt line, which has built its reputation as work clothing but also works as casual wear. Henery’s, 218 Sims Way, has devoted an entire room at the front of the store formerly used for cabinet display for its clothing line, which will also include Dickey’s (similar to Carhartt) and Georgia Boots, which were also available at Swain’s Outdoor. Hadlock Building Supply, 901 Ness’ Corner Road, will begin selling a wide variety of Carhartt products within the next month, according to co-owner Cassandra Arey-Rogers.

Rearranging inventory Both stores are rearranging their inventory to provide what was offered by Swain’s Outdoor, though Henery’s Hardware’s owner, Matthew Henery, said the

uct line will hopefully discourage shoppers from going to Silverdale or Sequim, but she also hopes to draw shoppers who think Port Townsend is too busy. “The traffic going in and out of Port Townsend is getting really heavy, and it takes too long to get in and out of town,” she said. Both stores are looking to encourage people to buy in Jefferson County, as it saves gas and generates sales tax revenue for the county. And while both stores attempt to fill the void left by Swain’s Outdoor, this is a reluctant move. “Swain’s closing is a big loss for the community,” Henery said. “I wish they were still here.” Cable said last week that several stores had expressed interest in taking over his lease at 551 W. Washington St., which expires in September.

The complex with 2,500 inmates remains under modified lockdown, which means there are no programs, classes or treatment sessions.

Walk red carpet at PA, PT Oscar galas Peninsula Daily News

Two galas on the North Olympic Peninsula — in Port Angeles and Port Townsend — will give you a chance to dress up in your finest, walk the red carpet and watch the Academy Awards next Sunday.

Port Townsend Poetry, Irish whiskey, doorstep popcorn, haute couture. All of the above will be part of the Academy Awards ceremonies — Port Townsend-style — in “The Envelope, Please,” the annual Oscar party presented by the Port Townsend Film Festival. “Come wanting to feel glamorous,” said Amanda Steurer, mistress of ceremonies for the bash. She will float up the red carpet at the American Legion Hall, 209 Monroe St., in a Matthew Christopher couture gown. Sound a little costly and uppity? Janette Force, Port Townsend Film Festival executive director, vehemently disagrees. Tickets to the party — which include hors d’oeuvres, dinner, prizes for the best star look-alikes and dessert served during the Oscarcast’s commercial breaks — are $40. That, said Force, “is a very good deal,” considering the dinner is by Uptown Custom Catering with embellishments by Pane d’Amore. Force said she strove to keep the price down even if the event doesn’t make much money for the film festival fund. “I always lean toward the inclusive model,” she said. “I’m so over the idea that we need to be exclusive.” “The Envelope, Please” will start early, at 3:30 p.m. Sunday, with the laying-out of the red carpet. Then comes the parade of

Some highlights: an evening of poetry and Irish whiskey-tasting with Sequim poet and naturalist Tim McNulty, a private film screening at the Rose Theatre’s intimate Rosebud cinema, and for DVD watchers, weekly home deliveries of popcorn from Port Townsend’s Rose Theatre. Rose owner Rocky Friedman “realized what his most precious commodity is,” Force said of the popcorn. As for the whiskey and poetry, “I shamelessly solicited Tim” early one morning, “and he was too sleepy to say no.” Proceeds from Sunday’s Oscar party, the sixth annual, will benefit the Port Townsend Film Institute’s special programs. These include a showing of the movie “Pax,” about the

eponymous therapy dog who helps an Iraq war veteran heal — and the Washington state women’s prison program where the dogs are raised — at the Rose Theatre on Sunday, March 6. Force is arranging to bring at least one member of the “Pax” cast and crew to Port Townsend for questions and answers after the screening. The film institute, the nonprofit behind the Port Townsend Film Festival, also holds salon discussions at the Rose, at 235 Taylor St., on the first Tuesday evening of each month. The next will follow the 7 p.m. screening of “The Illusionist” on March 1. Now back to the Oscar party. Dinner will be served at 4:45 p.m. so patrons can be in their seats in time for the 5 p.m. start of the broadcast,

chairs and help preside over activities at the Olympic Medical Center Foundation’s fundraising event “Hollywood Nights,” presented by First Federal. It will be held at the Vern Burton Community Center, 308 E. Fourth St., at 4 p.m. next Sunday. The event will feature a live telecast of the Oscars on three screens — one of 20 feet and two of 12 feet. Reserved seating is available for $60 per person. Tickets are available at Necessities & Temptations, 217 N. Laurel St., and the Olympic Medical Center Foundation, 928 Caroline St. More details can be obtained by phoning the foundation office at 360-4177144. Port Angeles “First Federal is pleased “Ax Men” TV stars Craig, to support this Olympic Gabe and Jason Rygaard Medical Center Foundation will serve as the honorary event,” said Gina Lowman, hosted this year by James Franco and Anne Hathaway. It will be a celebration of the joys of good cinema, if Force and Steurer have their way. “My favorite thing about the Oscars,” Steurer said, “is the celebration of film and those who dedicate their lives to tell stories through film.” Last year’s party sold out, Force added. She urges Oscar fans to phone the film institute office at 360-379-1333 or visit Tickets are also on sale at the Food Co-op, 414 Kearney St.; at Quimper Sound, 230 Taylor St.; and at the Port Townsend Film Festival office at 211 Taylor St.

First Federal’s senior vice president for sales and marketing. “The North Olympic Peninsula is fortunate to have the state-of-the-art facilities and services OMC provides.” The fundraiser will include the following: n  Dinner and a walk down the red carpet. n  “Guess the Winners” contest. A ballot accompanies each ticket, and participants who select the most Oscar winners will win prizes. n  Live and silent auctions and raffle prizes. n  The option to enter the “Dress as Your Favorite Movie Star or Character” contest, with prizes for the winners. Proceeds from “Hollywood Nights” will benefit Olympic Medical Center and departments such as home health, obstetrics, emergency room, cardiac services, laboratory and radiology. Craig Rygaard, co-vice president of Rygaard Logging, formed the nownationally known logging company in 1993 with the help of sons Gabe and Jason. The company received its first national TV appearance in March 2008 on an episode of “America’s Toughest Jobs.” From there, the Rygaard family began gaining celebrity status when Rygaard Logging was asked to join the second season of History Channel’s hit reality TV show “Ax Men.” Rygaard Logging finished season No. 2 of “Ax Men” with a boom, being crowned “King of the Mountain” by winning the load count, and it came in second in season No. 3, falling to rival J.M. Browning of Astoria, Ore., by just three loads. The company is now in its third season of “Ax Men” and is the only crew that will appear on every episode this year as it fights for the top spot.

PA can’t reach deal to open private parking lot Former Gottschalks building’s spaces remain somewhat off-limits during city’s stormwater construction By Tom Callis

PORT ANGELES — Parking outside the former Gottschalks building will remain kind of, sort of offlimits during the First Street stormwater project that begins this week. The city of Port Angeles had sought to have the private parking lot open to the public as workers dig into Magic is in the air at the Bushwhacker Restaurant.

The trust was seeking $35 per parking space per month, a cost the city can’t afford, said Glenn Cutler, city public works and

The tribe will be connected to the city’s sewers because it’s expected that its septic tanks will become unusable as the ground water level rises as a result of the removal of the two Elwha River dams. In order to not add to the city’s sewage overflow problem, the park service agreed to fund a stormwater disconnect project to offset the impact. Construction of the sewer system will start in mid-March and be finished by June 2012, said Olympic National Park spokesman Dave Reynolds.

PORT ANGELES — A 42-year-old Clinton man has been convicted on 13 counts of first-degree child rape in a six-year case involving a Port Angeles girl. Joel A.

The victim reported the incidents to her father, who phoned Port Angeles police June 30, 2009. “There are people in our society who have been victimized, and it’s important

that we stand up for them,” said Port Angeles Police Detective Jason Viada, who arrested Wilson without incident on Whidbey Island on Aug. 12, 2009. Crimes against people, especially children, are the highest priority for the Port Angeles Police Department Detective Unit, Viada said.

Class A felony

According to the certification of probable cause, the victim disclosed the crimes to her father and his girlfriend as they were filling out a questionnaire on divorce paperwork. The crimes began when the victim was 5 and lasted until she was 11, court documents show. The jury agreed on a special verdict because the victimization occurred over a prolonged period of time, Viada said. Wilson’s sentencing date was not available in court records as of Friday night.

PORT ANGELES — A Sunday afternoon hatha flow yoga class for intermediate-level yoga students will begin March 6 at the Sons of Norway Lodge, 131 W. Fifth St. Jennifer Veneklasen, who received her training in Seattle and Tacoma in the 200-hour YogaFit program, is offering the class for eight consecutive Sundays from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. The fee is $80, and space is limited. The two-month format “will offer you a chance to delve deeper into your practice, with a greater focus on the flow as well as pranayama, or yogic breathing,” Veneklasen noted. The ongoing sessions will also give students a chance to build on their poses and watch their strength and flexibility grow while getting to know other yoga practitioners, she added. Not having drop-ins any given Sunday means Veneklasen won’t have to tailor the class to newcomers. “The class will be constructed to meet you where you are,” she said. Veneklasen is a special sections editor at the Peninsula Daily News. She also teaches private prenatal yoga lessons at the Sons of Norway Lodge and yoga for all levels at the YMCA in Port Angeles. To sign up or find out more, phone 360-775-8746 or e-mail jennven@hotmail. com.

Peninsula Daily News for Sunday, February 20, 2011




Can kids really take the truth? A MONTH AGO, I used this column to join the legions of slightly overweight, often lazy but, hey, pretty happy Americans railing against Amy Chua’s Mark “Why Chinese Bazer Mothers Are Superior” essay in The Wall Street Journal. To back up my words with action, I took my son this past weekend to see monster trucks. Hmm, maybe Amy Chua was on to something. Actually, I was very much looking forward to showing the boy Grave Digger and friends. Most kids enjoy seeing a giant machine causing chaos and destruction, and until my son is old enough to take an interest in Chicago politics, monster trucks seemed the best option.

(See what I just did there!) The problem: It turns out the official monster trucks show, the Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam, is a rip-off and, worse, a bore. Again, nothing against the trucks’ purpose in life. I firmly believe in it. But for every minute of metalcrushing excitement, Monster Jam gave us 10 minutes of trying to make out what the announcer was saying, or watching a guy show off an official monster-truck toy conveniently available at the concession stand, or unsticking our shoes from the Allstate Arena floor [in Rosemont, Ill.]. Put it this way: When it’s a whole hour and 45 minutes into the “competition” before you see Monster Mutt pull off a truly admirable freestyle jump, you know you’ve been had. I know what you’re thinking: OK, you, a 30-something adult, didn’t like the monster trucks, but, um, what about, you

Speaking Out

know, your kid? Well, this is where it gets complicated. My son loved the isolated moments of excitement: Monster Mutt getting serious air, Grave Digger wiping out, a robot Transformer-esque thing breathing fire, unsticking his shoes from the Allstate Arena floor. These were the kind of moments that stir a little boy’s soul and expand his notion of what’s possible. If we can put a man on the moon, if Monster Mutt can lose a tire and still complete a jump . . . But because I am terrible at hiding my emotions, my son saw my irritation and, wanting to be like me, adopted it as his own. (Because of his unfortunate desire to copy everything I do, I rent a studio apartment where I can go to eat bad Chinese food, watch Fox News and occasionally use the non-word “brung.”) So, I come here with a question — one I’ve spent the past few days wrestling with, one I

have no answer to and which is about more than one silly monster-trucks show. And that’s: Should parents just walk through the lower-quality experiences in our children’s lives with a big, fat grin on our faces and the necessary credit card in our wallets . . . or should we try something crazy like being truthful? If I smile my way through Monster Jam, am I lying to my son — again not about my personal tastes in entertainment but in how any entertainment is delivered? Is it my job to help him develop a discerning eye, or is it more important to show him a happy father who he will at the appropriate age realize was another chump dutifully paying for whatever slop was being peddled to kids? How old does he have to be before I can draw up a PowerPoint presentation to show how what he just enjoyed was

actually crap? As it happened, last weekend at Allstate Arena, I settled for the worst solution — right smack in the unfortunate middle, with a clear scowl on my face while also attempting a triumphant highfive with my son as Grave Digger crossed the finish line first. Oh, yeah, that’s right, I forgot to mention Grave Digger won! He did it again! At least we can always say we saw ­— unlike me that day as a parent — a legend at the top of his game. ________ Mark Bazer is a humorist who hosts “The Interview Show,” a Chicago-based talk show available at He is one of the four columnists who appear here every Sunday.

“Teddy Roosevelt. He’s my favorite because of the great things he did for us like our national parks. And he was a Roughrider. He had guts, fortitude and spoke his mind.”

“Jimmy Carter. I think he is a remarkable man with a big view of people and cultures. He is more of a humanitarian and less of a politician.”

“Ronald Reagan is my favorite. He was honest and accomplished a lot. He oversaw the breakup of the Soviet Union and the tearing down of the Berlin Wall.”

“Franklin Roosevelt. He brought our country together during the hard times and during World War II. He was a fair man. My parents talked about him a lot, as I was a child back then.”

“Richard Nixon. He was no more a crook than anybody else in his situation. He promised to get us out of Vietnam, and he did. I was on the verge of being drafted but wasn’t.”

“John Quincy Adams. I’ve read about his faith and his politics. I believe in him. He’s an ancestor of mine, too. I had an uncle named Adams, and they traced back to him.”

“George W. Bush. I really felt like he was a decent man and cared about all the soldiers he sent to war. Some didn’t like him, but we all have that. Basically a nice person, though.”

“Ronald Reagan. He was a compassionate people person. I was in middle school and heard him talk, and I remembered the way he spoke. I even named my daughter Reagan.”


Peninsula Voices Presidents Day As we come up to Presidents Day, it should remind us again of what a miraculous job the founders of this country did: putting together a set of rules and restrictions, offering freedoms not just of speech and religion, but of virtually every aspect of our lives that do not impinge on the freedom or equality of someone else; tightly restricting the federal government from violating those freedoms; keeping responsibilities and authorities as close to the citizens as possible, at the states’ level, and providing for redress by the citizenry, armed if necessary, of overarching restrictions and regulations by the federal government. The Constitution they framed recognized the danger to the republic of deviations from that which the several states ratified. The risks of government becoming too powerful were recognized: too large, too bureaucratic, or too enamored of those in authority. The separation of powers granted to the three branches was intended as a

Clinic’s closure As one of the people affected by the closure of the Oral Health Services dental clinic [“PA Dental Clinic For Poor To Shut Down,” Jan. 28-29 PDN], I want to say that when a family hits hard times, they come together and find a way to work things out. That is what a family does. The dental clinic was a family. Patients came in and shared more than their dental woes. In addition to providing excellent dental care, they provided a compassionate ear. They provided resources to help with other issues patients may be facing. They encouraged the young population to study hard, get a good education and help in the advancement of these students. The governor required a 6 percent cut from state agencies across the board. So the decision was made at Olympic Community Action — instead of a 6 percent cut across the board, cut 100 percent of one program. It’s a shame. The dental clinic is a beautiful, state-of-the-art clinic, and it will sit unoccupied after Feb. 28. It’s a shame that the community action didn’t involve a community action. Susan Gile, Port Angeles Gile is a dental assistant at the Oral Health Services dental clinic.

Project disruptive The downtown dig in Port Angeles [on First Street for a stormwater project] is a direct consequence of the removal of the Elwha River dams.

Pregnancy centers Washington state House Bill 1366 proposes mandating pro-life crisis pregnancy centers to post disclaimers stating they do not perform or do referrals for abortions. Seriously, is anyone not aware that pro-lifers don’t condone abortion? The proposed law dictates such disclaimers be posted on the front door and any website in five languages. It must also appear in all ads and brochures. In addition, anyone who feels “aggrieved” by any failure to provide such notice could bring suit — with the pregnancy center obliged to pay all legal fees. Let’s try a little comparison: Many OB/GYNs will not deliver a baby via the natural birth canal if the mother has had a previous C-section. It’s called a Vaginal Birth After Cesarean Section (VBAC). The reasons involve personal opinion on safety of mother and child plus liability worries. VBACs are legal and performed in many hospitals.

where the food is. When an area is logged and the slash burned, it explodes with flowers and tender shoots and comes alive with rodents and deer. In the daytime, hawks and eagles circle, and at night, the spotted owls come looking for food. Ask any deer hunter where he goes to find deer. He could go through oldgrowth until hell froze over and never see a deer. The hunters hunt the clearcuts, where the deer browse in the tender shoots. I have spent many hours sitting on a tree stump near a clearcut watching the birds and animal life. Yes, spotted owls live in the old-growth and big second-growth, but they feed in the clearcuts. When the clearcuts were eliminated, the spotted owl had to hunt in the old-growth and secondgrowth, and that put them in competition with the barred owl, which saw them as food. Go up to a clearcut and sit on a stump for a couple of days and watch the action, then hike through old-growth and see the lack of birds and animals. It’s all about food. There are more birds and deer in Port Townsend than anyplace in the county. Maybe we need to declare Port Townsend a wilderness area and move the people out. James Fritz, Port Townsend

Sports Still alive Moment S E CT I O N



Prep Notes

matters PA boys split, reach at Mat winner-to-state game Classic Peninsula Daily News

EVERY SECOND COUNTS at the Mat Classic. With just six minutes in a Matt match — and Schubert only five in the consolation round — there is little margin for error at the state wrestling tournament. Nobody knows that better than Sequim junior Dakota Hinton, who’s roller-coaster day at the Tacoma Dome on Friday hinged on a matter of seconds. One moment, he was on the cusp of the Class 2A 171-pound semifinals, tied 2-2 with Jack Nevitt of Burlington-Edison near the end of the second overtime of their quarterfinal match. The next, he was left shaking his head after the referee ruled he’d applied an illegal figure four, handing Nevitt the 3-2 win. “If I lost by a takedown or an escape, I’d be OK with it, but a technical fault that is my point . . . that’s not good,” Hinton said. A few hours later, Hinton’s fortunes turned in the blink of an eye once again. Down 2-1 after scoring an escape in the second period, Hinton engaged Anacortes’ Andrew Bolton with both on their feet. Then, in a sequence that took only a few seconds to complete, Hinton was thrown into a headlock and taken down to the mat for a pin. Just like that, his tournament was over. “You have to be on top of your game if you want to win here,” said Hinton, who was making his first trip to state. “If you make one mistake, like I did in my last match, you’re pinned.”

Similar fate Teammate Emilio Perete-Colin suffered an even more painful defeat on an adjacent mat a minute later. Ahead 4-3 in the third period after scoring a near fall, PereteColin was hit with a quick reversal and subsequent near fall in the last 30 seconds of the match. The Sequim senior slumped off the mat in tears and into Wolves head coach Len Borchers’ arms after the match was whistled over. His tournament was over, and so was his high school wrestling career. If not for those final seconds, he would have experienced a Saturday at the Mat Classic. “It was close, he battled real well, that’s just the way it goes,” Borchers said. “There’s upset after upset around here. Good kids are behind and they pull it out at the last minute, or they are ahead, and something happens.” Of course, Hinton experienced the other side of that coin early Friday morning. That’s when he scored an upset victory of regional champion William Davis of Woodland in the first round. The two 171-pounders scrambled about the mat with the score tied late in the third round when Hinton finally gained an advantage With Hinton on top of Davis as the clock ticked down, the referee slapped the mat, awarding him a pin at 5:59 . . . literally the last second of the match. It ended up being the high note of an up-and-down day at the Dome. “That was the first time I think I’ve pinned a guy in the last second of a match, so it was pretty cool,” said Hinton, who finished 1-2 at the tournament. “During the season I wasn’t sure if I was at this level. “I guess that helps me realize I’m at that level and can compete with state-level guys.” Nathan Cristion’s own mastery of those final moments carried him to Saturday’s semifinals in the 2A 189pound bracket. Much like Hinton, the Port Angeles senior was locked in a tie late in his quarterfinal against Logan Ferrier of W.F. West. Then, with less than 30 seconds to go, Cristion scored an escape, takedown and near fall in three quick movements. Turn



TACOMA — The Port Angeles boys basketball team moved within a win of state after belting fellow Olympic League team Olympic 62-43 at the Class 2A West Central District tournament Saturday night at Foss High School. After getALSO . . . ting knocked to ■ PA girls the consolation reach district bracket Friday title game; night against Sequim boys Fife, the out/B4 Roughriders (17-8 overall) rebounded to stay alive. “We rebounded well from the Fife loss and came out to dominate from the opening bell to the final buzzer against Olympic,” Rider coach Wes Armstrong said.

The Riders lost 57-52 to Fife in the championship quarterfinals Friday. Yet Saturday’s win placed them in a sixth-seed to state, loser-out game against Lindbergh on Monday at 6:15 p.m. at Foss High School. Ian Ward scored 15 points and Colin Wheeler added 10 for the Riders, who led 18-8 after one quarter and 34-16 at halftime. Ward and Keenen Walker both had seven rebounds for Port Angeles.

Friday’s loss Things didn’t go quite as smoothly on Friday against the Fife Trojans, as Port Angeles let an 11-point halftime lead slip away in a winner-to-state contest.

Riding off fourth PA’s Cristion top area wrestler at Mat Classic Peninsula Daily News

TACOMA — Four years after being introduced to the sport, Nathan Cristion is the fourth-best 189-pound wrestler in all of Class 2A. The Port Angeles senior ended his high school career on a bitter-

sweet note Saturday after placing fourth as the top North Olympic Peninsula finisher at Mat Classic XXIII this weekend. “He didn’t even know wrestling existed prior to his freshman year,” Port Angeles head coach Erik Gonzalez said.

“He has come a long way. “I believe his potential in wrestling . . . he’s barely even touched the tip of the iceberg.” Three area wrestlers placed in the state championship event at the Tacoma Dome, with Forks getting two of its wrestlers in the top seven at Class 1A. Turn

Close to home PT angler atop derby ladder after one day Peninsula Daily News

Doug Lux didn’t have to travel very far to become the first day leader of the Olympic Peninsula Salmon Derby. Fishing just 100 yards out in front of the Port Townsend Boat Haven, Lux caught a 17.35pound blackmouth mooching herring in 35 feet of water early Saturday morning. The first fish to the docks at 7:27 a.m., it ended up holding on to the top spot in the ladder once fishing concluded at 3 p.m. As it turned out, the fish ended a bit of a slump for the 45-year-old Port Townsend native. “I hadn’t seen a decent fish since this summer,” said Lux, who’s fished in and around Admiralty Inlet since he was five. “It makes it a whole heck of lot easier to get out on the water

when you’ve already got one fish.” Anglers were greeted by strong winds across derby waters Saturday, with the conditions hampering the efforts of many of the 800 or so ticket buyers. A total of 80 fish were submitted to the ladder, with 66 of them getting turned in to the Port Angeles weigh station on Ediz Hook. The other 14 were spread out among Freshwater Bay (7), John Wayne Marina (3), Gardiner (1) and Port Townsend (3). Two of the top three fish came out of Port Townsend, however. That was led, of course, by Lux’s 17.35-pound beauty. Turn

Derby: PT angler Continued from B1 “It took us about 10 minutes [to bring it in] because the wind was blowing so hard,” Lux said. “You’ve pretty much got to take that in this derby.” Lux should know as well as anyone. He and his family have participated in the event formerly known as the Discovery Bay Salmon Derby for years. His brother, Brian, actually won the 1982 derby and placed another time last decade.

Notes: Corner Classic Continued from B1 The final score may have read 8-2, but those who saw the match knew it was much closer than that. “I knew it was going to take six minutes,” Cristion said. “It’s tough [winning those kind of matches]. It’s the hardest thing you’ll ever do. “Everything in your body is telling you you’re done, you want to stop, you want to quit, but all the practice and everything . . you can’t quit. You have to keep going. It’s going to be worth it.” For Cristion — the lone area semifinalist and highest placer — it certainly was.

Wheeler snuck a peak at Cortani whenever he could, but obviously there was little he could communicate with his 125-pound grappler during matches. “On those, I was watching both of them,” Wheeler said. “In the state tournament, there’s not a whole lot you can say anyway, because it’s so loud in here. “If you’ve done what you’re supposed to all season long, they are going to do what they need. “Maybe [you give your wrestlers] a little reminder when there’s a break or something like that, but for the most part they are going to be wrestling.”

Continued from B1 That included a fifthplace finish from 119-pound junior Cutter Grahn and a seventh-place showing from 125-pound senior Tyler Cortani. “You might want to be a little better, but you can’t be too upset when they are state medalists,” Forks coach Bob Wheeler said. “They both ended their season with a win, so that is good.” That was not the case for Cristion, however. Despite being the top finisher among 11 area representatives at the Tacoma Dome this weekend, Cristion was forced to go out on a loss. The defeat ended what was a roller-coaster day for the lone semifinalist from the Peninsula. That began with a deflating 7-4 loss to state runner up Joey Gomez in the semifinals. Cristion then scored a pin victory over Steilacoom’s Jake McCane in 4 minutes, 21 seconds, to get into the third-place match. Going up against “clone,” Kole Braaten of Centralia, in the final match of his career, Cristion fell 5-2. “It was a battle all the way,” Gonzalez said. “[Braaten] was Nate. They were almost like clones of each other. “[Cristion] came over afterward, and said ‘Geez that kid is strong.’ I’m laughing because I was thinking, ‘You’re strong yourself. “It was an interesting battle. Unfortunately, Nate made a couple of mistakes.” The fourth-place finish was the second placement of Cristion’s career at the Mat Classic, including last year’s eighth-place finish. Gonzalez said he’s already got a couple of schools looking for Cristion to join their wrestling program. “He definitely wants to pursue wrestling at the next level, and I think he’s going to be a great college wrestler,” Gonzalez said.

Lonnie Archibald/for Peninsula Daily News

Forks wrestler Cutter Grahn, top, wrestles against Andres Tereza of Highland in the first round of Mat Classic XXIII in Tacoma on Friday.

In fact, the Spartan junior opened up the possibility of making Spartan history as a senior next year after placing fifth in 1A at 119 pounds Saturday. “We’ve never had anybody place three times,” Wheeler said. “We’ve had several that have placed twice.” Grahn and Cortani both joined that company on Saturday. Grahn did it the hard way, rebounding from a first round upset loss with three straight wins. Unfortunately for the Spartan, Andres Tereza of Highland was standing in the way of a spot in the third-place match. And just like he did when the two met in the first round, Tereza topped Grahn by a three-point margin (7-4). “That kid was a lot better than we really thought,” Wheeler said. “He blocked the stuff that Cutter was best at, and Cutter didn’t have enough of a backup to come up with something else.” Grahn finished out the tournament with a pin of Orting’s Dillon Stiles in the fifth-place match in 2:15. It was his fourth victory of the tournament, the most of any area wrestler, and enough to top his sixthplace mark from a year ago. Cortani also improved on his last placement — his Grahn comes back eighth-place finish in 2009 The end isn’t quite here — after going 3-2 on the for Grahn, however. weekend.

That included a 2-1 victory in the seventh-place match against Michael Huckins Of Omak. “Tyler got the first takedown in the first round and then each of them rode the other out and nobody got away,” Wheeler said.

Eight eliminated Friday All eight of the Peninsula’s other state wrestlers were eliminated by Friday night. Sequim had three wrestlers come within a win of the 2A medal round, with Dakota Hinton (171), Emilio Perete-Colin (215) and Amariah Clift (285 girls) all winning one match. “We knew we were still young from last year when we started the year,” Sequim coach Len Borchers said. “I said, ‘Boy if we get anybody here, it’s going to be a good year. We brought five kids total and they competed well. Now they know what it’s going to take.” Cristion was the lone Rider of the team’s three state representatives to earn a win this weekend. “It was a great season,” Gonzalez said. “Our kids came a long way. “We’re looking forward to next year. “We do lose the five seniors, so we have some big shoes to fill, but we feel we have some kids that are ready to step in.”

Riders at state meet Peninsula Daily News

TACOMA — Madylan Conventon of Port Angeles High School had the best finish of North Olympic Peninsula athletes at the state gymnastics championships this past weekend.

Lindbergh 56, Sequim 53 TACOMA — Lindbergh ended the Wolves’ season with the three-point win in a loser-out West Central District tournament game Saturday. Sequim lost 71-62 to Olympic League champion Kingston on Friday night in the quarterfinals to slip into the consolation bracket against Lindbergh the next day. The contest went down to the wire as Kenny Meier got a steal for the Wolves and tied the game at 53-all with a layup. But a Lindbergh player was fouled attempting a 3-point shot in the waning moments and was sent to the line for three free throws. He sank all three, sealing the Wolves’ fate. “I’m really proud of the way our guys played,” Sequim (16-9) coach Greg Glasser said.

“The ball just didn’t go into the hole as much as we would have liked.” Overall, the Wolves put themselves into a good spot, Glasser said. “We had the opportunity to play for that [state bid],” he said. “I think it was a great experience for our younger kids, and we made some great memories with our seniors, too.” Sequim had only two seniors this year, Nick Camporini and Meier. Gabe Carter led the Wolves with 19 points, 11 rebounds and four assists while Jayson Brocklesby and Corbin Webb sank 12 points each. Webb also had four assists. “We didn’t lose a game by more than nine points all season,” Glasser said. “That’s just a testament to those kids and how hard they battled all year long.” Lindbergh 56, Sequim 53 Sequim Lindbergh

Cougs burned by Sun Devils Upset hits WSU hard in quest for tourney spot By Bob Baum

The Associated Press

TEMPE, Ariz. — Klay Thompson was late for the team bus, and Washington State’s day just got worse from there. Trent Lockett scored 20 points and freshman Chanse Creekmur, in his first start, added a careerbest 18 and short-handed Arizona State snapped a nine-game losing streak with a 71-69 victory over the Cougars on Saturday. Thompson, held out of the lineup for the first 5:47 of the game, scored 24 of his 28 points in the second half for the Cougars (17-10, 7-8 Pac-10). After Creekmur made one of two free throws with 5.8 seconds left, Abe Lodwick’s 3-pointer to win the game for Washington State bounced long off the rim. “It just really felt great to get a win finally,” Lockett said. “With the way things have been going, when that shot was in the air I didn’t have the best feeling, and when it hit the rim, a kind

of weight was just lifted off my shoulders.” Lodwick had missed just once in four 3-point tries before that one. “I thought it was in,” he said. “I wish I could get it back, but I won’t get another shot today. “We can’t let it ruin the rest of the season for us.” Thompson was asked if the game was the toughest of the season for his team. “Yeah, easily,” he said. As for being late for the bus? “I lost my iPod,” he said, “so I was stressing that, but it’s whatever — can’t do anything about that now.” Reggie Moore and DeAngelo Casto added 12 points apiece for Washington State while Lodwick scored 11. Keala King scored 10 for Arizona State. “I give the guys great credit for their character and having relinquished the lead, having been on the ropes through the season the way we have,” Arizona State coach Herb Sendek said. “Without two of their leaders, somehow, someway, they hung in there and found a way to win in the end. “That’s not an easy thing to do.”

TUCSON, Ariz. — Derrick Williams powered through defenders and the pain in his taped-up right pinky to score at the rim. He also soared over opponents to snare rebounds. One of Arizona’s worst 3-point shooters in practice, he again came through with the lights on, hitting a big one from the perimeter in the closing minutes. All that turned out to be just the build-up to the big finish. Coiling and springing from just inside the paint, Williams leaped up and swatted Darnell Gant’s shot into the stands, then topped it off by stealing the inbound pass to preserve No. 12 Arizona’s wild, 87-86 win over Washington on Saturday. “It was a heck of a play by Derrick Williams,” Washington coach Lorenzo Romar said. And a heck of a night. Playing the way he did before his pinky injury three weeks ago, Williams powered over and through Washington for 26 points and 13 rebounds. He scored 10 of his points in the final 6 minutes and hit a 3-pointer from in front of Arizona’s bench to put the Wildcats up one with just over a minute left. Williams saved his best for the closing seconds, on the defensive end, no less. Solomon Hill gave Arizona the lead on a putback with 24 seconds left, but the Wildcats traded a turnover by Washington with one of their own after struggling to get the ball inbound.

The Associated Press

Arizona’s Derrick Williams (23) grabs the rebound between Washington’s Matthew BryanAmaning (11) and Darnell Gant, right, in the second half of Saturday’s game at McKale Center in Tucson, Ariz. Taking the ball out under the basket with 2.2 seconds left, the Huskies got the ball to Gant in the lane, a chance for the win in his hands. Williams took it away. Timing his leap perfectly, he swatted the ball at the top of its arc, sending it several rows into the stands. The Huskies had one more shot with less than a second left, but Williams took that away, too, poking the inbound pass away, then running to midcourt, where his teammates piled on and the fans started a chant of “One more year!” “I really can’t explain it — it’s unexplainable,” Williams said as he rested his pinky on a bag of ice.

“It’s just a great feeling. It’s really good we got that win.” Williams’ finishing flourish capped off a memorable night — for both teams. The McKale Center always has one of the best atmospheres in college basketball and had some extra juice for what may be Arizona’s biggest game since Sean Miller became coach nearly two years ago. The Pac-10’s two highestscoring teams put on quite a show amid a whiteout of T-shirt-wearing fans, trading runs and spectacular plays, not to mention emotions and a few elbows. Arizona (23-4, 12-2 Pac10) fed off the atmosphere

early, quickly building a double-digit lead. Washington (18-8, 10-5) fought its way back, grabbing a slew of careless passes by the Wildcats to grab the lead in the second half. That set up a furious final 7 minutes that left everyone spent and the winning coach so charged up he congratulated the losing coach for a great win at the postgame handshake. “I was so caught up in emotion, I think I said ‘good win,’” Miller said. “What I meant to say, what a game. It’s a shame one team had to lose.” Arizona won it behind Williams and another strong effort from his supporting cast. Lamont Jones had 12 points and four assists to overcome a handful of sloppy turnovers and erratic shots. Kevin Parrom had 11 points and played solid defense, including a trackhim-down swat of Isaiah Thomas on a breakaway in the second half. Jesse Perry added 11 points and Hill hit what eventually became the game-winning basket, giving Arizona its eighth straight win and control of the Pac-10 race with four games left before the conference tournament. “I’ve never played in a game like this before, with the type of crowd we had and the type of team we played,” Perry said.

Hummingbirds seek energy boosters HUMMINGBIRDS IN OUR yards all winter is relatively new in this area. There has always been the isolated or hot line sighting that got the birding community excited. Many of us are now feeding the Anna’s hummingbirds as regularly as we feed the other birds. Even so, we’re still a little uneasy when we see hummingbirds in December and January. We worry about keeping their feeders full and feel a sense of responsibility that is a little uncomfortable. It’s important to remember that these birds wouldn’t stay all winter if they didn’t know what they were doing. The sugar-water syrup we put out isn’t the mainstay of their diet. It is an energy booster, and that is welcome, especially when it is bitter cold. In the morning, it’s like that first cup of coffee that gets you going for the day. The last drink just before dark keeps them warm throughout the night. Have you noticed they usually don’t sit by the feeder all day? They are finding and consuming other food. Tiny insects, some of which can be almost microscopic, make up about 75 percent of their diet. Protein is the most important part of a hummingbird’s diet. If we are covered in snow and the temperatures drop to freezing, these birds can also go into a state of semihibernation known as a “torpor.” Just recently, a reader observed something very interesting about a hummingbird’s diet at this time of the year.

BIRD WATCH Several years ago, I Carson read an article about the holes that redbreasted sapsuckers drill in trees and how these little rows of holes are actually “wells.” Sap fills the newly drilled holes and not only do the sapsuckers drink from them, but so do other insects and other birds, including hummingbirds. This reader had the rare experience of seeing a hummingbird feeding at the sapsucker wells in his yard’s cedar trees. He is originally from a part of the country where they drill, or tap the trees for maple syrup. They do this in the winter after a sudden cold snap starts the sap running. Not only do we have winterblooming plants, tiny insects and faithful feeder-tenders supply the needs of our hummingbirds, we have sapsucker wells. While we are on the subject of feeding hummingbirds, another reader brought up a subject that has plagued birdwatchers for years. It’s been decades since the word went out that red food coloring is not only unhealthy for hummingbirds, but it isn’t necessary. Why use it? The manufacturers of hummingbird feeders have done an excellent job of using the color


Paul Carson

An Anna’s hummingbird flits around a feeder, attracted to the red-looking liquid inside. red in feeder design. The only reason the dye was originally used was as an attractant. Hummingbirds are attracted to the color red more than any other. You can put out a feeder with no red on it or in it, and you will have hummingbirds using your feeders. There is a commercial product that makes a hummingbird nectar, and they use red in it. Some of these concentrates are shown as lasting two years. What else is

in them? Hummingbirds love the sugarwater mixture we put in our feeders without any food coloring. I use a three parts water to one part sugar and get it hot enough to melt the sugar. It isn’t necessary to boil it. The concerned reader who contacted me had done her own research on this subject and was eager to share it and get the word out to others who feed these special birds. To find more information on

red coloring in hummingbird syrup, visit www.hummingbirds. net/dye.html. In a few short weeks, the activity at the hummingbird feeders will explode. It’s almost time for the rufous hummers to return! Spring won’t be far behind.

Each plant cut should have purpose SO NOW THAT we have learned there are several reasons to prune, let us further whittle that number down to the three ever-present tenets of pruning. ■  Have confidence. You must be confident in what you are doing. If you’re not, then you are most likely pruning without knowledge, and that is most likely not a good thing. If you lack confidence, take classes, read more pruning books, browse the Internet or hire it out to a professional. And remember two things here: First, most people — and lots of those hired — are pruning so horribly that no one is likely to recognize that you are. Second, your plants will thank you because they greatly benefit from a good haircut. ■  See the inner plant yearning to be set free. Remember, you are always pruning for the future: what you want, where you want the plant to grow and where you don’t want it to. If you can’t picture in your mind what the future shape of your plant will look like, how can you prune it? You can only butcher it at best, and I have seen the worst. So step back, look at your plant, and see that beautiful specimen ready to be pruned out and brought forth by you. ■  Every cut must have a reason. The essence of pruning — otherwise, why are you doing it? But the reason is your deci-

A GROWING CONCERN sion — not to let the plant May grow back into the driveway, or to double the rhododendron flowers, perhaps even just to make it look less horrible. For whatever reason, each cut should be stopping or promoting growth because of your reasoning. This is why, for me, it is hard to prune for more than 3 to 4 hours because of the mental drain of more than 2,500 decisions, one mind game per cut, in that amount of time. When each cut makes sense, then you are truly pruning and creating, and it’s a beautiful thing. Here’s the dirty little secret of pruning: With all your plants, those seven reasons, the three tenets, with all that, there are only two types of cuts. Yep, just two, so how can people goof it up so badly? You theoretically have a fifty-fifty chance, right? The two types of cuts are heading cuts and thinning cuts.

See you on the PDN Garden Bus


AS I SIT here, drinking my coffee and watching the buds on the fruit trees swell, my excitement level as well is budding out as I realize the PDN’s 12th annual Garden Bus to the country’s second largest horticulture show in Seattle is only three days away! On Wednesday, we (those lucky ones who signed up) are off to the Northwest Flower & Garden Show at the Washington State Convention Center for opening day.

Flower show extravaganza This flower show extravaganza features more than 350 horticulture vendors, 24 magnificent display gardens, 120 free guest speakers and a plethora of groups, organizations and information. The show runs through Sunday, Feb. 27, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. (6 p.m. Sunday) and if any of you think this column is worthwhile, then I am urging you to go because I would not dream of missing it! For further information, go online to learn all about the show at or give me a call at my office at 360417-1639. Who knows? Maybe we can still fit you on the bus. Andrew May

branch, stem, limb, cane or lateral at the point where it radiates from another. You cut it off at its spot of origin. This thinning cut does not produce any new growth at Two types of cuts the spot of the cut but rather Thinning cuts are the ones diverts energy to that segment’s people should do most of the time other tips. but aren’t. That in turn produces more A thinning cut removes a flowers, fruit and leaves.

It also permanently removes that segment of growth now and in the future, which can be really advantageous.

Heading cuts A heading cut, however, produces new growth at the exact spot of the cut, usually manifesting as two or more new shoots, and is achieved by cutting across

a trunk, cane, stem, branch, limb or lateral above a node. Nodes are areas along the plant’s nonfoliage growth that have or could have leaves, branches, stems or laterals growing out from them. Nodes are often little scars or strange shapes, rings around the branch or stem. If one cuts just one-eighth to one-fourth of an inch above them, then plant hormones are released, and new growth occurs.

Why head off? That’s why we head off to create lush plants, more flowers, more fruit, thicker hedges or a better wind screen. But if you do heading cuts, you must do thinning cuts later or your plant turns into a thicket — a dense mass of live and dead organic material. And when you head off, the first node will be the one that grows the fastest and best in the exact direction it is pointing. That is why you head it off at the node going in the direction you desire. There you go, the art of pruning. Now go forth and be a gardening Monet.

Marine center sets training for docents Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — The Port Townsend Marine Science Center is seeking volunteers with an interest in nature and the environment to serve as docents for its marine and natural history exhibits for the upcoming season. The center will be hosting a variety of training opportunities in the next several weeks. “Volunteers don’t need to be experts, just curious, friendly and reliable,” said volunteer coordinator Jean Walat. Natural History Exhibit training will be held at the

exhibit across from the Port Townsend Marine Science Center Pier at Fort Worden State Park from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Thursday. Docents will serve as hosts in the Natural History Exhibit, sharing information about geology, orcas, glaciers and seabirds. There’s always a staff person present while volunteers are on duty, so they’re never “on the spot” for an answer. Marine docent training will be held at the pier. Training will occur from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on four Tuesdays beginning March 29. Volunteers will learn to

work with the public in exploring marine creatures, hydrophones, weather and environmental issues. A training for gift shop volunteers will be scheduled soon. These volunteers will welcome visitors and ring up sales. The center is also accepting new volunteers for the Marine Mammal Stranding Network and other citizen science projects in which volunteers collect data for scientists. For more information or to register, phone Walat at 360-385-5582, ext. 112, or e-mail

Governor OKs deficit-cutting package By Manuel Valdes The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — After more than a month of negotiations, Gov. Chris Gregoire signed into law Friday a package of deficit-cutting measures that attempt to patch a shortfall of more than half a billion dollars in the current fiscal year. But the action Friday still leaves the state hundreds of millions of dollars in the red. The agreement trims several state programs, including the state’s health care program for the poor and aid for the disabled, as well as transfer funds from other programs. In total, the plan slashes the estimated deficit by about $370 million, with

about $242 million in cuts and $125 million in transfers. The final agreement of cuts differed a little from what the House and Senate approved earlier in the day. Gregoire vetoed a handful of provisions in the bill, including a 3 percent pay cut for nonunionized state workers and a reduction of public affairs staff in the executive branch. She vetoed about $6 million in cuts. The Office of Financial Management estimates that the remaining projected deficit for this current fiscal year is $226 million, adding in the money not saved from the vetoes. The fiscal year ends in June. Lawmakers are expecting that deficit to grow after the

March revenue forecast, which they expect to drop below what they want. “The March forecast will provide remaining information to complete the final supplemental,” Gregoire said in a statement. “The Legislature now must turn its attention to the immediate challenge of addressing the 2011-2013 budget. This will not get easier with time.”

Some of the ideas Among some of the ideas to finish patching up the deficit to the current fiscal year is delaying payments to public schools from the last day of June to the first day of July. That move would push that piece of the state’s cur-

Lawmakers mull ways to mend state ferries The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — Hoping to bring more financial stability to the Washington State Ferries, legislators are proposing cutting labor costs, privatizing leadership of the system, raising fares by a quarter or creating an accountability board to set performance measures for managers. Gov. Chris Gregoire’s proposed ferry budget for the 2011-2013 period includes raising fares by 10 percent, adding a fuel surcharge and reducing daily trips. She also counts on diverting $44 million from the road fund. But state lawmakers said they want to avoid large fare hikes or fewer sailings. They think they can come up with some of the $44 million by scrubbing the budget.

Scrubbing the budget “We are scrubbing the ferry system budget, going line by line to find efficiencies,” state Rep. Marko Liias, D-Edmonds, vice chairman of the House transportation committee told The Herald. “When we’re done, there’ll be no grand plan or something to put on a poster board that you stand in front of.” The governor had told lawmakers that if they didn’t like her proposal to create a regional authority for the state ferry system, they needed to come up with their own, the newspaper reported. The Senate transporta-

tion committee last week considered one measure to add a quarter to the price of a ferry ride to raise money for building or buying new vessels, The Herald reported. “This probably is not enough money, but it at least starts us in the right direction,” said state Sen. Mary Margaret Haugen, D-Camano Island, the committee’s chairwoman and sponsor of the surcharge bill. The amount raised is less than the price of a new boat — the MV Chetzemoka cost $77 million — but it’s a start, she added. “It’s probably enough that we can begin to bond against it.” Fares cover about 70 per-

cent of the ferries’ day-today expenses, with the remainder coming from gas taxes deposited in the state’s road fund. Legislators have also proposed bills targeting provisions in a collective bargaining agreement being negotiated with ferry workers. For example, some lawmakers said they want to end a much-criticized practice of paying some ferry workers for their time and mileage traveling to and from a shift. Gordon Baxter, a lobbyist for a ferry worker union, said those workers are agreeing to changes that will provide savings of as much as $10 million a year.

Death and Memorial Notice CHARLES MICHAEL ‘MIKE’ COLTON March 27, 1950 February 10, 2011 Charles Michael “Mike” Colton, age 60, of Sylva, North Carolina, died Thursday, February 10, 2011, at Angel Medical Center in Franklin, North Carolina. He was born March 27, 1950, in Raymond, Washington, to Charles Bennett and Lois Ann (Haasl) Colton. Mike graduated in 1968 from Port Angeles High School and went on to graduate from Central Washington University. A proud veteran of the United States Army, he also worked as a schoolteacher, coach, logger, commercial fisherman and millworker.

Mr. Colton At the time of his death, he was employed by the U.S. Postal Service as a rural mail carrier, his favorite position of them all. An enthusiastic sports fan and outdoorsman, he enjoyed collecting firearms and fishing gear.

Mike also loved spending time with his family, friends and beloved dogs. He was always quick with a joke, and never knew a stranger. Mike was preceded in death by his parents and a sister, Ann Colton. Survivors include his wife, Carolyn Wilson Colton; son, Rod, and wife, Misty Colton, of Sylva, North Carolina; brother, Paul (Londi) Colton of Port Angeles; sisters, Mary (Robert) Hudon and Karen Carman, both of Forks; granddaughters Rachel and Autumn Colton of Sylva; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Funeral services were held February 13, 2011, at the First United Methodist Church in Sylva. Burial will be at Keener Cemetery in Sylva.

may be on the plan. Education, K-12 and higher education, also suffered cuts of $60 million and $26 million respectively. The agreement came from lengthy negotiations between Democrats and Republicans in the House and Senate.

GOP opposes package But House Republicans opposed the package in the end, pointing to education funding, in which $25 million were taken from class size reduction initiatives. They also argued that the budget is unsustainable and not enough cuts were made to programs that have expanded state government spending. “At some point, we’ll have to get away from saving everybody in the world with a government dollar,” said state Rep. Bill Hinkle, R-Cle Elum. “This budget is a classic

example of our inability to deal with reform.” They said they would have preferred eliminating the cash grants for Disability Lifeline, which provides cash and medical care to unemployable disabled adults who aren’t covered by federal Social Security benefits. “I am all for finding efficiencies and streamlining services where we can,” said state Rep. Gary Alexander, R-Olympia, the House Republican negotiator on the budget. “But there are going to have to be significant reforms and entire program eliminations in order for us to close the budget shortfall for the 2011-2013 biennium. “It doesn’t make sense to keep some of these programs on life support for the next few months.” The Senate voted 37-10 and the House voted 55-41 to approve the package.

Death and Memorial Notice CONSTANCE GENEVIEVE HOLM WESTLAKE October 1, 1912 February 14, 2011 Constance Genevieve Holm Westlake passed away peacefully at home from age related causes. She was 98. Connie was born in ­Bozeman, Montana, on October 1, 1912. She grew up in Bozeman and graduated from Montana State University. She married her childhood sweetheart, Gordon Westlake, on July 4, 1935. They moved to Minneapolis while he went to dental school. They returned to Bozeman and as Gordon was building up his practice, Connie was a creative homemaker and raised four children.

Mrs. Westlake After Gordon retired in 1976, they moved to Spokane, Washington, to Sequim in 1982 and finally Port Angeles in 1996. Connie was always active in her church, her community and PEO. Her greatest joys were being

with her family and exploring the outdoors. She was a gifted musician and artist. She touched so many lives and will be greatly missed. Connie was preceded in death by her husband, Gordon, and her son, Edward. She is survived by her daughters, Laurie Westlake of Port Angeles, Pam Mirrer of Sequim and Maryanne Juleff of Las Vegas, Nevada. A celebration of Connie’s life will be held Saturday, February 26, 2011, at 1 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church, 139 West Eighth Street, Port Angeles. In lieu of flowers the family requests that memorial contributions be sent to Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County, 540 East Eighth Street, Port Angeles, WA 98362.

Death and Memorial Notice JACK MELVIN CLAPP July 11, 1923 February 3, 2011 Jack Melvin Clapp was born July 11, 1923, in Richmond, Indiana, to parents Harry and Elmyra Clapp. He went home to be with the Lord in his own home on February 3, 2011, at the age of 87, in the presence of those he loved most. He died of complications from asbestos-related lung disease. He spent his early years in southwestern Ohio, where his mother died when he was 5 years old, after which he and six siblings were placed into an orphanage. Following a difficult childhood, he entered the Navy on February 3, 1943, to serve in World War II. He was stationed in Port Angeles on the USS Hatfield, serving in the North Sea. During this time he met and married his wife, Ruth. Shortly after his discharge from the Navy on February 28, 1946, as Ships Cook 2nd Class, he was hired by Crown Zellerbach of Port Angeles until his retirement on December 1, 1979, at the age of 56. In 1952, he bought a

Mr. Clapp small farm on Blue Mountain Road, where he lived until his death. His wife, son and family still live on that property. He loved outdoor activities, and in his later years, his favorite hobby was the Port Angeles Farmers Market, where he sold handmade Amishlooking hot dish pads by the hundreds, which have made their way all over the world. He had been a member of Independent Bible Church for nearly 30 years. After retirement, he served with Northwest Independent Church Extension as a missionary builder working on many churches in the western states, including Sequim Bible, Fairview Bible, Quilcene Bible and Indepen-

dent Bible Churches. Because of his love of small children, he served faithfully for about 30 years with Child Evangelism Fellowship and served on its local board. One of his favorite events was to talk to hundreds of children outside the CEF tent at the Clallam County Fair, telling them about Jesus. His favorite topic of conversation was to tell others about his four granddaughters and his 10 great ones. He was preceded in death by eight of his brothers and sisters, and is survived by six halfbrothers and sisters. He is also survived by his wife, Ruth, of 65 years; son, Jack Jr.; four granddaughters and 10 great-grandchildren. He will be remembered as kind, friendly, loving, faithful, funny, enthusiastic, ambitious, and loyal to his family, his church and his God. He will be missed and will be well remembered by all he knew and loved. Donations in his memory may be sent to Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County at 540 East Eighth Street, Port Angeles, WA 98362, to whom we owe a heartfelt thank you for their compassion and faithfulness.

The agreement for the current budget includes maintaining cash grants to the Disability Lifeline program but reducing them by 50 percent and moving to eliminating the cash grant in the next two-year budget; limiting enrollment of children to the state’s Children’s Health Program to families at 200 percent of the federal poverty level; and limiting eligibility to the Basic Health Plan to those who qualify for Medicaid, essentially filtering out illegal immigrants and legal immigrants who

GOP asserts control: House cuts $60 billion Republicans take on EPA, health care plan

trillion spending bill needed to keep the government in operation was a victory for the large, boisterous class of fiscally conservative Republican freshmen that is fiercely determined to change the ways of Washington and that forced party leaders to pursue far bigger cuts than originally planned. But the cuts to hundreds of federal programs and terminations of others faces a veto threat from Obama — and implacable opposition from majority Democrats in the Senate. As a result, it is unclear how much of it will ever become law.

Standoff with Senate? Senate leaders have signaled that they will not consider anything approaching the scale of cuts approved by the House, setting up a standoff that each side has warned could lead to a shutdown of the federal government early next month. The House’s action is the first step in an increasingly bitter struggle between Democrats and Republicans over how much to cut federal agencies’ funding over the second half of the budget year that ends Sept. 30.

Current funding runs out March 4, and a temporary spending bill will be needed to avoid a government shutdown. With Congress this week on a weeklong Presidents’ Day recess, lawmakers will return with just four days to agree on a temporary extension of the stopgap measure now financing the government. Saturday’s vote was also the opening salvo in what is likely to be a long, bitter clash of philosophical ideas about fiscal policy on Capitol Hill, in statehouses around the country and in the 2012 presidential campaign, as Republicans repudiate the liberal, Keynesian strategies the Obama administration has relied on to navigate through the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression. Shortly after the vote, Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner, attending a meeting of finance ministers and central bankers in Paris, expressed hope that Democrats and Republicans would eventually find a way to cut spending and reduce longterm deficits. Turn



Will the House cutbacks stick? Democrats are instead urging a spending freeze, something House Speaker John Boehner has rejected outright, even on a short term basis to allow for bipartisan talks. The two sides Boehner have warned that the expected clash could lead to a shutdown of the federal government early next month. The deadlock has federal agencies beginning to plan for closure, and federal workers braced for layoffs. Memories of a series of shutdowns in 1995 and 1996 — also the result of a budget standoff between a Republi-

can-led House and Democratic White House — are swirling.

Proposed cuts Here are specifics on some of the proposed $60 billion cutbacks contained in the House-approved bill: n  Block money to implement Obama’s health care overhaul law enacted last year. n  Bar federal funds for Planned Parenthood, which provides abortion and family planning services with its hundreds of clinics across the U.S. The organization says 90 percent of the $363 million a year it receives in government aid comes from Washington or the federal-state Medicaid program.

Stay tuned for the rest of the story Fishing boat undergoing PA repairs A COMMERCIAL FISHING vessel sitting on the hard at Platypus Marine in Port Angeles is about to get back into the water. How she got to Platypus is an interesting story. And there’s a “rest of the story” hook that would make the late broadcaster Paul Harvey proud. Platypus has had the 88-foot Kristena Rose at its facilities on Marine Drive for the past 10 days. According to the boat’s owner and captain, Randy Hahn of Neah Bay, the boat was built in Denmark in 1962 and was registered in Canada for more than 40 years. On the evening of Jan. 3 while Capt. Randy was getting a couple hours of sleep. While the boat was being guided by a crew member, she ran aground near Shipwreck Point between Neah Bay and Sekiu. Her fate nearly became that for which the rocks are named. Capt. Randy said he heard the boat hit bottom, and when he got to the wheelhouse, Kristena Rose was already on the wrong side of the kelp line, her stern firmly settled on the rocks. The following evening, a commercial fishing boat came to the aid of the grounded vessel and pulled her to deeper waters on the incoming high tide. Kristena Rose was then moored to a dock in Neah Bay and encircled by a containment boom as a precautionary measure in the event the vessel started leaking fuel oil. Subsequent inspections of the stricken vessel by a commercial diver and the Coast Guard identified

ON THE WATERFRONT damage to the Sellars hull, keel and prop. A temporary fix was made dockside, but the Coast Guard required that the vessel be hauled out of the water for further inspections and necessary repairs.

David G.

Coast Guard inspection Cmdr. Christopher Woodley, chief of the prevention department for Coast Guard Sector Puget Sound, said that whenever a vessel is involved in a search and rescue incident, typical Coast Guard posture dictates a post-event inspection. Items of concern identified by the inspector must be resolved before the vessel can re-enter the water. Cmdr. Woodley said it wasn’t all that long ago that a vessel’s owner was presumed to have complied with a Coast Guard inspector’s request to rectify items needing corrective action before resuming commercial operations. However, there was no follow-up by the Coast Guard to verify compliance. Too often, efforts at resolving the deficiencies were lacking and not up to the standards the Coast Guard deemed sufficient. Ultimately the corps of commanding officers of the Coast Guard sectors, who also serve their respective regions as captain of the port, stepped into the void. Captain of the port is the title held by the commanding officer of a region’s Coast Guard sector. In our area, the commanding officer of Sector

David G. Sellars/for Peninsula Daily News

The Kristena Rose sits in the Platypus Marine Inc. yard in Port Angeles for repairs stemming from her grounding at Shipwreck Point west of Sekiu. Despite the mishap, her Neah Bay owner is already putting her checkered past behind her. Puget Sound is Capt. Scott J. Ferguson. The captain of the port has a broad range of responsibilities and duties that include ensuring the safety of ports and marinas and providing for the security and protection of vessels, harbors and waterfront facilities. Cmdr. Woodley explained that with these edicts in mind, regulations have been developed — with substantial input from those serving as captains of the port — that now allow the Coast Guard to verify compliance with their recommendations. These regulations are known simply as Captain of the Port Authority.

Steel plates The damage sustained




by Kristena Rose as a result of her foray onto the rocks required the welding of steel plates onto the damaged areas of the keel and hull. The propeller also needed to be replaced and new seals installed on the shaft. When these repairs have been completed and the Coast Guard inspector certifies that the boat is in compliance, they will cancel the Captain of the Port Authority and she will be free to get under way.

The rest of the story Before she was the Kristena Rose, she was the Western Wind, a boat of some notoriety in Port Angeles and Port Townsend. On Feb. 21, 2001, while in the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Western Wind was boarded by the Coast Guard and U.S. Customs Agents. More than 2½ tons of Colombian cocaine were seized. The then-captain of the boat and his four crew members, all Canadians, were arrested and detained in Seattle for immigration violations stemming from their illegal entry into the United States. The cocaine was destroyed, Western Wind was confiscated and moored at the Coast Guard station on Ediz Hook. She was eventually hauled out of the water and stowed on the hard in the area where Westport

Shipyard’s building now sits. The U.S. Customs Service began forfeiture proceedings and a buyer from California ultimately purchased her. He moved the boat to Port Townsend, where time and restoration costs got away from him and the boat was seized by the Port of Port Townsend to satisfy arrearage. After a period of time, Capt. Randy purchased Western Wind at auction, changed her name to Kristena Rose and gave her a better lease on life. Capt Randy, who has been commercial fishing for 25 years, said that his goal is to keep making improvements to Kristena Rose so that he can make a comfortable living for his family. He hopes that one day his boat will live down her notoriety and that her troubled past, which was not of his making, will become a lost chapter in the log book of an otherwise strong and sturdy fishing boat. And — with apologies to Mr. Harvey — that’s the rest of the story.

runny nose or sore throat, zinc lozenges, tablets or syrups can cut colds short by an average of a day or more and sharply reduce the severity of symptoms, according to the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, a respected medical clearinghouse. While it is not certain how the mineral curbs colds, it appears to have antiviral properties that prevent the cold virus from replicating or attaching to nasal membranes. In some of the cited studies, the benefits of zinc were significant. A March 2008 report in The Journal of Infectious Diseases, for example, found that zinc lozenges cut the duration of colds to four days from seven days, and reduced coughing to two days from five. The study authors offered no guidance on what type of zinc product to buy. The authors declined to make recommendations about the optimal dose, formulation or duration of zinc use, saying that more work was needed before they could make recommendations. “Over all, it appears that zinc does have an effect in controlling the common cold,” said Dr. Meenu Singh, the review’s lead author.

Japan pulls whale fleet under stress Activists blamed for ship safety Peninsula Daily News news sources

TOKYO — Conservationists are cautiously celebrating after Japan announced it was suspending its annual whale hunt, claiming its fleet’s safety had been compromised by antiwhaling activists in the Antarctic. It isn’t clear if the order to stop whaling amounts to the beginning of the end of Japan’s annual mission to the freezing waters of the Southern Ocean. But it is the strongest sign yet that international criticism, direct action and weak consumption of whale meat at home are having an impact. The official line, supported almost without dissent in the Japanese media, is that the actions of the whaling fleet’s nemesis, the Sea Shepherd marine conservation group, have put the crew’s safety at risk and

kept its catch far below its annual target of whales. A spokesman for the ministry said on Friday that 170 minke whales and two fin whales had been caught this season, far below the annual targets of 850 minke and 50 fin. The recall of Japan’s fleet is the first time that environmentalists have succeeded in cutting short the annual hunts which Japan says are necessary for scientific research. Critics say the hunts are an effort to evade a global moratorium on commercial whaling. The recall was welcomed by Sea Shepherd, which is based in Washington state’s San Juan Islands. In a statement on its Web site, the group said three of its ships would remain in the Southern Ocean to “escort” the Japanese fleet northward.

Cat and mouse In recent years, Sea Shepherd has sent ships to the Antarctic to block Japan’s whaling fleet, turning the hunts into a game of cat-and-mouse that has

The environmentalists try to block the Japanese by tangling the ships’ propellers with ropes or putting their own vessels in between the whalers and their quarry. The ministry said the group had harassed the Japanese ships by shining laser beams to temporarily blind crew members and throwing flares onto the whaling vessels. But activists insist there

is another reason for the retreat. The cost to Japan, both financial and diplomatic, of “research” whaling is getting more difficult to justify at home, where there is little appetite for the fruits of the crew’s labors. In contrast to the postwar years when whale meat was a vital source of protein and formed a regular part of school lunches, modern Japan has simply lost its appetite for the dish. Instead, thousands of

tons now lies unsold in refrigerated storehouses across the country. That whale meat has fallen out of favor was underlined last month when the Japan-based Dolphin and Whale Action Network estimated that stockpiles exceeded 6,000 tons — a record high. Japanese consumers, according to one estimate, eat the equivalent of a measly four thin slices of sashimi (raw fish) a year. International pressure appears to be paying off, too.

Australia, the most vocal antiwhaling nation and an important trading partner for Japan, has filed a complaint about the annual hunts with the international courts of justice at The Hague. Last week, Latin American members of the International Whaling Commission joined the chorus of disapproval, urging Japan to end the research missions and respect areas that are widely regarded as whale sanctuaries.

2 carcinogens in cola coloring, group maintains The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — A watchdog group is asking the Food and Drug Administration to ban the “caramel coloring” used in Coca-Cola, Pepsi and other soft drinks. In a regulatory petition filed today, the Center for Science in the Public Interest argued that

the coloring is contaminated with two chemicals, 2-methylimidazole (2-MEI) and 4-methylimidazole (4-MEI), that it said are produced with ammonia and cause cancer in test animals. Natural alternatives — including dark colorings from beets or carrots — should be used, or the soda industry could

Montana mulls reversing its pot law Marijuana too much, some lawmakers say By Matt Gouras

The Associated Press

HELENA, Mont. — Some Montanans have had enough of medical marijuana, saying their state’s image as a rugged cowboy frontier is being replaced by a fast-growing pot culture. They point to the spread of medical pot in normally healthy college students, an abundance of pot shops and concerns among police that excess of medicalgrade marijuana is being exported illegally out of the state. Now, some lawmakers are pushing to make Montana the first state to repeal a medical marijuana law. “It’s not good, this situation we are in,” said House Speaker Mike Milburn, a former Air Force pilot and rancher. “We’re getting known for the wrong reasons.” Medical marijuana advocates and legal pot smokers packed hearings recently, filling Capitol halls with the unmistakable herbal scent of pot and pleading for tighter rules, not repeal.

Governor balking Gov. Brian Schweitzer has yet to propose his own fix and probably won’t, and instead is deferring to lawmakers for now. But he said residents have more pressing concerns, such as getting jobs and earning enough money to support their families. “They have kids coming home from college that don’t have jobs,” he said. “They are making $8 an hour and that is not enough to pay their insurance, pay their rent and make their car payment. “They would like to make $12 an hour. “If medical marijuana comes up at all, it is because they like to

joke about it,” he said. Montanans overwhelmingly voted to allow medical marijuana for the very sick in 2004. There were few regulations in place, and the number of people who got a state card to smoke pot grew slowly at first. Then came the boom, beginning in 2009 after the Justice Department said it wouldn’t prosecute patients who follow state law. Advocates and distributors then figured out they could sign up thousands of people who claim to suffer from “chronic pain” — a vague term covering everything from creaky knees to sore backs to persistent headaches. They started caravans, going from town to town to register patients by the thousands. Leaders in cities across the state began to grow concerned when they saw pot sellers springing up on main streets and near schools.

Business moratoriums

The Associated Press

They put moratoriums on the businesses, and many asked lawmakers for a solution. The advocates stopped the caravans. The state board of medical examiners fined one doctor who saw a new patient every six minutes during one of the traveling clinics — not enough time to provide adequate care. Just two years after the boom began, there were more than 28,000 registered users in a state of less than a million people. That’s about three times as many state-sanctioned marijuana smokers as ranch owners. Roughly one of out every 19 households now has a card. Nearly a third of cardholders are under 30 years old. The numbers of registered users continues to grow by as many as 1,000 new users a month. Even the advocates who backed the initiative in 2004 agreed they never envisioned a multimillion dollar industry. Many advocates have lobbied for lawmakers to put restrictions

Dozens of marijuana advocates and smokers told lawmakers to tread carefully before messing up an initiative voters approved. Jim Gingery, a grower and executive director Montana Medical Growers Association, said repeal would put thousands of people out of work just at a time when the mainstream medical community is beginning to embrace the benefits. The industry is pushing for regulation to solve the perceived problems, which Gingery believes are exaggerated. None of the 14 states that allow medical marijuana have repealed their laws, although some leaders in Michigan and New Mexico have suggested it may be necessary, according to the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. Washington is one of the 14 medical marijuana states.

PORT ANGELES — Bobby Beeman, a six-year employee with Olympic Medical Center, recently earned her graduate degree in communication and leadership studies from Gonzaga University. Beeman’s capstone thesis, required for graduation from the program, applied “agenda-setting theory” to a study of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil disaster and the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill. She investigated the methods used by newspapers covering the two disasters and how the coverage potentially influenced public perception of the events. “It is a laudable accomplishment to earn a graduate degree while working full time,” said Rhonda Curry, assistant administrator of strategic development. “Bobby is a highly valued employee who is recognized for her personal initiative.”

SEATTLE — The Seattle Times is calling for the state Legislature to legalize marijuana. In an editorial in Saturday’s editions, the newspaper said the time has come for the states to lead a push against federal laws prohibiting the possession and use of marijuana The newspaper endorsed state House Bill 1550, which would legalize marijuana and sell it through state liquor stores to customers older than 21 who consume it in private. The Times editorial board said the prohibition of marijuana has not worked and wastes the resources of the police, the courts and the jails. The editorial suggested it is better to legalize pot, regulate it and tax it. Ryan Blethen, Times editorial page editor and associate publisher, said the newspaper understood that “a good number of citizens may disagree with our call on this.” The Seattle Times is the largest daily newspaper in Washington state.

Second-language fluency can hold off Alzheimer’s Peninsula Daily News news services

WASHINGTON — Talk about the power of words — speaking at least two languages may slow dementia in the aging brain, new research shows. Scientists already knew that bilingual young adults and children perform better on tasks dictated by the brain’s executive control system. Located at the front of the brain, this system is “the basis for your ability to think in complex ways, control attention, and do everything we think of as uniquely human thought,” said Ellen Bialystok, a psychologist at York University in Toronto,

Researchers say painkiller inhibits return Peninsula Daily News

BOSTON — Breast cancer survivors who took aspirin after completing treatment were half as likely to die or have their tumors spread around the body compared with survivors who didn’t take aspirin, a long-running study of 4,164 nurses showed. The study is the first to find that regular aspirin users had a lower risk of

dying from breast cancer, according to the study, published in the current Journal of Clinical Oncology. Aspirin may help control cancer by fighting inflammation, says study author Michelle Holmes of Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Breast cancers produce more inflammatory chemicals than normal breast cells. Lab tests show that aspirin keeps breast tumor cells from growing and invading other tissue. A study last August also found that aspirin offered a potential benefit against colon cancer. It suggested

Canada. Now studies are revealing that advantages of bilingualism persist into old age, even as the brain’s sharpness naturally declines, Bialystok said Friday at a meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Washington, D.C. Bialystok and colleagues examined 102 longtime bilingual and 109 monolingual Alzheimer’s patients who had the same level of mental acuity. About 24 million people have dementia worldwide, with the majority of them suffering from Alzheimer’s, according to Sweden’s Karolinska Institutet medical university.

The bilingual patients had been diagnosed with the Alzheimer’s about four years later than the monolingual patients, on average, according to Bialystok’s most recent study, published in November in the journal Neurology. This suggests bilingualism is “protecting older adults, even as Alzheimer’s is beginning to affect cognitive function,” Bialystok said. Even if you don’t learn a second language until after middle age, it can still help stave off dementia, Bialysto Being “bilingual is one way to keep your brain active—it’s part of the cognitive-reserve approach to brain fitness,” Bialystok said.

It suggested that that a low dose of aspirin may reduce colon cancer cases by a quarter and deaths by a third. that that a low dose of aspirin may reduce colon cancer cases by a quarter and deaths by a third. Yet neither study proves that aspirin keeps cancers in check, Holmes says. That is because doctors in each study merely followed patients for several years, noting which patients developed cancer and, of those, which took aspirin. So it is possible that something other than aspirin controlled their tumors, Holmes says. For proof, doctors would need to conduct a “gold standard” trial in which doctors randomly assign one group of patients to take a aspirin, then compare their progress with patients randomly assigned to a placebo, says Eric Jacobs, a scientist at the American Cancer Society.

Until then, breast cancer survivors should be cautious about aspirin and consult their doctors before taking it, Holmes says. She notes that patients who are being treated for cancer usually are told to avoid aspirin because it can act like a blood thinner. That could be a problem for women who are having radiation and chemotherapy, which also lower the number of blood cells, she says. Even healthy people can develop serious gastrointestinal bleeding from aspirin, Jacobs says. Holmes says no one should try to take aspirin instead of conventional cancer therapy. The nurses in the study had all completed their cancer treatment, Holmes says. The study didn’t measure the dose of aspirin women took. But Holmes notes that many of the more than 2 million American breast cancer survivors already take a daily low-dose aspirin to reduce their risk of heart attack. “If a woman who had breast cancer is already taking aspirin, she might take comfort in knowing that perhaps she is also helping to keep her breast cancer from coming back,” Holmes says.

Gasoline prices highest in 3 years Peninsula Daily News

Gas prices on the North Olympic Peninsula are at their highest level in three years. Drivers were paying an average of $3.41 a gallon for gas in Jefferson and Clallam counties on Saturday. That’s up from $3.31 a week ago and $2.83 a year ago. The state average was $3.34. The national average price rose to $3.16, up 3 cents from last week. Analysts blame a number of reasons for the spike in gas prices, including worldwide inflation and the uncertain political situation in the Middle East. Oil prices hovered around $89 a barrel Friday as violent protests in Bahrain, Yemen, Kuwait, Jordan, Tunisia and Libya kept investors on edge about possible crude supply disruptions.

Climate study SPOKANE — The federal government has awarded a $20 million grant to universities in Washington, Oregon and Idaho that is designed to ensure that wheat farming in the Pacific Northwest will survive climate change. The five-year grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture will study the relationship between climate change and cereal crops, primarily winter wheat. Wheat is the No. 1 export through the Port of Portland, the largest wheat-export harbor in the United States.

SEATTLE — Two passenger-only ferries that Washington state no longer wants have been sold to the African nation Tanzania. The ferries Kalama and Skagit had been sold to a boat broker in British Columbia, who then sold them to Tanzania. The sale price was $400,000, far below the $900,000 the state said they were worth in 2009, when the state stopped running passenger-only ferries. Ferry officials originally hoped to sell the two 112foot boats in the Northwest. When that didn’t work, it offered them on the Internet for $300,000 each, with no takers. The ferries will be used between the mainland of Tanzania and the Zanzibar archipelago.

Woman worries flirting may seem pushy to potential dates DEAR JOHN: SHOULD a woman drop clues to a man to show that she is interested in him? In Mars and Venus on a Date, you suggested that one way for a woman to encourage a man’s interest is to ask his assistance for something, but I’m worried that this might seem pushy. Am I right or just being too darn shy? — Ready to Go Hunting in Port Washington, Wis. Dear Hunting: Believe it or not, many Venusians are reluctant to flirt. The ideal flirting attitude begins with eye contact, which gives the message,

Mars vs.

Venus John Gray “You could be the one to make me happy.” A woman’s flirting responses to a man’s pursuit are very exciting because a man is always looking for the opportunity to take credit for a woman’s happiness. It compliments his ability to make a woman happy. Being successful in flirting can be as

much fun for him as it is for you. That said, however, it’s normal for you to be afraid to try something new. To lessen your initial uneasiness, I suggest that you approach flirting as if you were shopping in a department store: Enjoy checking out what you like. If you feel you need to brush up on your flirting skills, talk to someone whose skills are evident. Have you ever noticed that there’s one girl in your circle who gets more than her fair share of dates? Ask her for some pointers. In most cases, she’ll be happy to help.

Dating brothers Dear John: My sister is in a real jam. She first dated and then was intimate with “Andy.” When that relationship ended, Andy’s brother,

“Don,” asked her out. They started out as close friends and then became lovers. I know that Don has real feelings for my sister. Unfortunately, she is still in love with Andy, not Don. Recently, Andy told her that he was still in love with her. I think he’s just trying to get back at his brother. What should she do? — Just Trying to Help in Jefferson City, Mo. Dear Trying: Whenever dealing with an issue that impacts a family member, you should move with great care. Boyfriends will come and go, but the relationship you have with your sister will last a lifetime, so be sure that your advice is only given when she asks for it.

Details of the wedding, engagement or anniversary can be listed on a form available in person at any of the Peninsula Daily News offices (see above), or by calling 360-417-3527 or 800-826-7714, ext. 527, in Jefferson County and the West End.

Men refuse to become ‘obsolete’ WHAT WITH BUSINESSES prizing brains over brawn and women able to make their own living and their own babies (thanks to test tubes and sperm banks), there’s been some talk of men becoming as obsolete as the dinosaurs who were unable to evolve. Not these guys!

Peninsula Woman


PORT TOWNSEND — Artist Carolyn Watts walked into another world with her heart open. Ever since, her heart has expanded, along with her cooking skills. Watts, then a clinical laboratory scientist at Seattle’s Providence Medical Center, decided to follow her heart 17 years ago by enrolling in Seattle’s Cornish College of the Arts. She graduated magna cum laude, a sculptor and painter with an

appetite for crossing borders. So when a Seattle friend, Jim Egbert, asked Watts in 2007 to paint a mural at his second home in Marrakech, the Moroccan city of 1.07 million, she gathered her paintbrushes and flew off to North Africa. While working there, she got to know Hakima, an expert cook who helped her with everything: shopping for groceries, cooking, holding her ladder steady while she painted. Turn

She urges students to take the cooking classes and then go traveling around the medina — the old city­— as well as around the adjacent modern parts of Marrakech. And then there’s the countryside, which includes the Sahara Desert. Watts, for her part, has never been much of a tourist. She is an explorer, a walker, a woman who smiles at passers-by, then bows her head and places a hand over her heart. And that, she says, has made the difference. Hakima is only one of the many friends she’s made. There is also Nezha, the cook who invited her to a family wedding outside the city. It was an unforgettable party, with festivities that began at 8 p.m. and went on till 5 a.m. As soon as Watts got up and danced with the celebrants, “all of the barriers came down,” she remembers.

Welcomed into family

Scott Wilson (3)

Carolyn Watts of Port Townsend will soon travel to Marrakech, Morocco, to reunite with friends including Zarah, left.

Nezha’s family “kind of adopted me,” Watts says, after she took Nezha’s brother Morad, who suffers from a heart ailment, to the doctor. He was painfully thin when they met. Helping him get medical attention was “just what I do,” she says.

Morad’s health improved, and Watts has asked him to be her photographer while she’s in Marrakech every spring and fall. She leaves her camera with him; he takes photos of the cooking school participants from Port Townsend, of Watts and of her Moroccan friends — and family members, including her honorary daughter, Amal. They met soon after Amal, who has a master’s in business administration and speaks five languages, had lost her

It was the 1960s, she was a lab scientist, and she had an opportunity to travel with a public health team to Kabul, Afghanistan. But she didn’t go. “I quit and got married . . . and that is the only thing in my life that I regret,” Watts says. She does not, however, regret the daughter, Morgan, that she parented with her first husband; she is grown up and living in Seattle now. And Watts has been happily married to her second husband, John Watts, for 31 years. He has gone with her to Morocco, but not every time, since his work as Port Townsend’s city attorney keeps him busy at home almost all of the time.

Dreams of skills center Watts’ dream is to have a language and jobs skills center that would be open to the working-class people of Marrakech. Until that dream comes true, she will keep returning, each fall and spring, to see friends old and new, and to invite people from Port Townsend and the North Olympic Peninsula to Hakima’s cooking school. Clearly, connecting with people — wherever they are — is easy for Watts. When asked what shaped her into a woman who so naturally reaches out, she answers quickly. “My hometown was 600 people,” she says. Growing up in Cedarville, in Modoc County, Calif., taught her to look everyone in the eye, to see everybody, regardless of their station. Returning to Marrakech year after year has enabled her to make a difference in the lives of the women she works with — “and they in mine,” she adds. “My life,” says Watts, “has never been better than now.”

Continued from 2 I quietly went about my business watching others play the game and witnessing the aftermath — the jock who gained weight and lost his hair, the cheerleader on her third marriage, etc. Some of my male friends have commented they’re jealous of me because I’m retired and able to do the things I want and like to do. I understand their position. Some of my wife’s friends comment kiddingly they’re jealous of her because I cook, shop and do things for and with her.

Can you help? My ex-husband says he cannot continue to pay for our 9-year-old twins’ soccer registration and uniforms. He is the one who got them interested in the sport and actually signed them up. Since he knows the coach on a personal basis, he only paid half of the sign-up fee. I am very angry about the whole idea of having to tell them that they cannot continue to play soccer due to a financial mistake their dad made. Would it be acceptable for me to ask the coach for an exception and allow installment payments to be made? If so, do I disclose the details of my ex-husband’s situation?

I’m not obsolete, but think I’m on the “endangered species” list. I realize now I was raised and surrounded by male role models who had good moral and ethical foundations on which to lead their lives. May I give a word of advice to women in the young 35 crowd? Avoid the flash and consider the quiet guy. You just may wind up happily married!

This week’s question: When will a woman become president?


The PC Cultural Arts Series and The Juan de Fuca Festival present

an energetic mashup of Bhangra, Celtic, dub, reggae and electonica with global rhythms and club beats

“Hopefully, sooner than later. “We do have our first African American in there now. I don’t see why we can’t have a woman in office. Maybe [Hillary] Clinton. “I don’t know if it will happen in my lifetime though. But I’d like to see it happen maybe in the next 20 years.”

“Hillary Clinton came close in the past presidential election. I think we are getting closer all the time. “Lots of powerful women out there. They’re qualified in what they can do. I hope they give a woman a chance to show us what they can do. “I really think a woman could do a very good job.”

“We do have some capable women right now. Perhaps in five or six years Hillary [Clilnton] might be a good candidate. It’s too early to tell, though. “We do have a lot of capable women out there. They could do no worse than what we have now in office. “Yes, I do have faith in women.”
