Taj Mahal returns to Port Townsend Will headline 20th annual blues fest By Charlie Bermant Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — Taj Mahal will headline Centrum’s weeklong 20th annual Acoustic Blues Festival this summer. The festival will take place at Fort Worden State Park from July 31 to Aug. 7, with a performance by Mahal at McCurdy Pavilion on Aug. 3. Tickets will go on sale to Centrum members April 15 and to the general public May 1. “Taj Mahal is a true blues musician who appeals to a wide range of audiences,” said Centrum Executive Director John MacElwee. “We’re very excited that he will be returning to Centrum after many years.”

‘Excited’ about his return Mahal played Port Townsend several times in the 1990s, appearing in Centrum-sponsored shows while never performing at the blues festival. In addition to the concert appearance, Mahal will be a featured guest at a meetand-greet, open exclusively to registered festival participants, earlier in the day. “Taj Mahal has kept his vision for many decades and is totally involved with the blues,” said Peter McCracken, blues festival founder and program manager. “He’s committed to the music, and he’s in tune with what’s happening, having worked his way around the Caribbean and African styles.”

Taj Mahal will headline the 20th annual Acoustic Blues Festival with a concert Aug. 3. McCracken said the festival was negotiating with Mahal for last year’s festival but ran into scheduling problems. “We’re in the Northwestern corner of the country, and it’s hard to get people to come up here to play because 90 percent of the concerts happen east of Cleveland,” he said.

TUESDAY’S QUESTION: Do you favor the U.S. Navy taking a hard line on pirates in international waters off Africa?

Passings JUDITH COPLON, 89, who was accused of being a Soviet spy in 1949, died Saturday in a Manhattan, N.Y., hospital, her daughter, Emily Socolov, said Wednesday. A 28-year-old Justice Department employee, Ms. Coplon had been caught with secret U.S. Ms. Coplon documents in 1949 at a meeting with a Russian agent on a Manhattan street. She claimed she was meeting him only because she loved him, but she was found guilty at two trials. The convictions were overturned, and the cases were eventually dropped on grounds including lack of a warrant and illegal wiretaps. Ms. Coplon married one of her lawyers, raised four children in Brooklyn and became an educator and supporter of literacy. “She never talked about it,” Emily Socolov said, except in the context of the causes she supported throughout her long life after the trials: racial equality, women’s rights,

1936 (75 years ago) President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the order authorizing $80,779 for a Works Progress Administration project to substantially expand Port AngelesClallam County Airport. Arnold Levy, chairman of the Clallam County Board of Commissioners, said the field will be one of the finest in the state. Two lighted runways each 300 feet wide and 3,750 feet long will embrace an area of 100.36 acres. The current field consists of 30 acres. When completed, the airport will be able to allow landing of a huge 40-passenger plane, the

largest made.

1961 (50 years ago) Capt. James N.

Capt. and Mrs. Schrader and their two young daughters plan to leave Port Angeles around May 15 and probably will drive to the new duty station.

A 500-yard safety zone was established around the Liberian chemical tanker Stolt Vincita after about 25 gallons of the chemical xylene spilled from a small hole below the water’s surface. Lt. Cmdr. Phillip C. Volk, operations officer at the Port Angeles Coast Guard Air Station, said the chemical is highly flammable and can cause irritation to the eyes and throat. But it is unlikely that the xylene will affect fish or shellfish because only a small quantity was spilled, and it dispersed quickly.

With the temperature hovering in the low 30s, Christopher Michael Carroll drove 35 miles from Manteca to nearby Pleasanton on Sat- Carroll urday with his wife clinging to the hood, prompting 9-1-1 calls from at least two alarmed witnesses, police said. Carroll, 36, was being held without bail Wednesday at the San Joaquin County Jail on charges of attempted murder, kidnapping and domestic assault, according to sheriff’s department records. Carroll got into the family’s minivan around 12:30 a.m. Saturday after he and his wife had an argument at their Manteca home, said police spokesman Rex Osborn. “She kind of goes with the van to try to stop him, gets up on the hood and is hanging on to the wiper blade,” he said. “She obviously didn’t think he would keep driving.”

Stopgap funding bill WASHINGTON — The Sen-

ate on Wednesday sent President Barack Obama a Republican-drafted stopgap funding bill that trims $4 billion from the budget, completing hastily processed legislation designed to keep partisan divisions from forcing a government shutdown. Moments later, Obama called on congressional leaders to meet with top administration figures including Vice President Joe Biden to discuss a longer-term measure to fund the government through Sept. 30. “We can find common ground on a budget that makes sure we are living within our means,” Obama said. “This agreement should be bipartisan, it should be free of any party’s social or political agenda, and it should be reached without delay.” The White House said Obama will sign the bill.

Bill to ban striking COLUMBUS, Ohio — The bargaining rights of public workers in Ohio would be dramatically reduced and strikes would be banned under a bill narrowly passed by the Ohio Senate on Wednesday. A GOP-backed measure that would restrict the collective bargaining rights of roughly 350,000 teachers, firefighters, police officers and other public employees squeaked through the state Senate on a 17-16 vote. Six Republicans sided with Democrats against the measure. Firefighters and teachers shouted “Shame!” in the chamber as the legislation was approved. The bill would ban strikes by public workers and establish penalties for those who do participate in walkouts. The Associated Press

‘Even hurtful speech’ protected under law Anti-gay funeral picketers allowed by Supreme Court By Mark Sherman

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that a grieving father’s pain over mocking protests at his Marine son’s funeral must yield to First Amendment protections for free speech. All but one justice sided with a fundamentalist church that has stirred outrage with raucous demonstrations contending God is punishing the military for the nation’s tolerance of homosexuality. The 8-1 decision in favor of the Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kan., was the latest in a line of court rulings that, as Chief Justice John Roberts said in his opinion for the court, protects “even hurtful speech on public issues to ensure that we do not stifle public debate.” The decision ended a lawsuit by Albert Snyder, who sued church members for the emotional pain they caused by showing up at his son Matthew’s funeral. As they have at hundreds of

Briefly: World Rebels corner fleeing Gadhafi forces in Libya BREGA, Libya — Rebel forces routed troops loyal to Moammar Gadhafi in a fierce battle over an oil port Wednesday, scrambling over the dunes of a Mediterranean beach through shelling and an airstrike to corner their attackers. While they thwarted the regime’s first counteroffensive in eastern Libya, opposition leaders still pleaded for outside airstrikes to help them oust the longtime leader. The attack on Brega, a strategic oil facility 460 miles east of Gadhafi’s stronghold in Tripoli, illustrated the deep difficulties the Libyan leader’s armed forces — an array of militiamen, mercenaries and military units — have had in rolling back the uprising that has swept over the entire eastern half of Libya since Feb. 15. In the capital of Tripoli, Gadhafi warned against U.S. or other Western intervention, vowing to turn Libya into “another Vietnam” and saying any foreign troops coming into his country “will be entering hell and they will drown in blood.” At least 10 anti-Gadhafi fighters were killed and 18 wounded in the battle for Brega, Libya’s second-largest petroleum facility, which the opposition has held since last week.

Jews exonerated VATICAN CITY — Pope Benedict XVI has made a sweeping exoneration of the

Jewish people for the death of Jesus Christ, tackling one of the most controversial issues in Christianity in a new book. In Jesus of Nazareth-Part II excerpts released Wednesday, Benedict explains biblically and theologically why there is no basis in Scripture for the argument that the Jewish people as a whole were responsible for Jesus’ death. Interpretations to the contrary have been used for centuries to justify the persecution of Jews. While the Catholic Church has for five decades taught that Jews weren’t collectively responsible, Jewish scholars said Wednesday the argument laid out by the German-born pontiff, who has had his share of mishaps with Jews, was a landmark statement from a pope that would help fight anti-Semitism today.

Yacht reaches coast NAIROBI, Kenya — A Danish family kidnapped by pirates has reached Somalia’s coastline, officials and a pirate said Wednesday, likely meaning a long hostage ordeal for the couple and their three teenage children who were abducted while yachting around the world. The family has been moved to a larger ship, and none of the hostages has been harmed, a pirate said. A Somali pirate previously warned that if any attempt was made to rescue them, they would meet the same fate as the four American yachters slain by their pirate captors last week. Any chance of a quick rescue seemed to disappear Wednesday. The Associated Press

Two U.S. airmen killed in Germany airport shooting By David Mchugh and Juergen Baetz The Associated Press

FRANKFURT, Germany — Two U.S. airmen were killed and two others were wounded at Frankfurt airport Wednesday when a man opened fire on them at close range with a handgun, the first such attack on American forces in Germany in a quartercentury. President Barack Obama called the shooting an “outrageous act.” The alleged assailant, identified as a 21-year-old Kosovo man, was taken immediately into custody and was being questioned by authorities, said Frankfurt police spokesman Manfred Fuellhardt. Family members in Kosovo described the suspect as a devout

Muslim who was born and raised in Germany and worked at the airport. The attacker got into an argument with airmen outside their military bus before opening fire, killing the bus driver and one other serviceman and wounding two others, one of whom was in life-threatening condition, Fuellhardt said. He said the attacker also briefly entered the bus. The suspect then fled into the airport terminal, where he was quickly grabbed by two federal police officers and a U.S. airman who had pursued him into the building, authorities said. He was disarmed without incident. The victims, part of a group of about a dozen members of an Air Force military police and base

security unit, had just arrived from England, the Air Force said. They had landed at Frankfurt airport, one of Europe’s busiest, and were waiting outside Terminal 2 to be driven to nearby Ramstein Air Base, which is often used as a logistical hub for operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. The two wounded airmen were taken to a hospital. “I’m saddened and I’m outraged by this attack,” Obama said at the White House. “I want everybody to understand that we will spare no effort in learning how this outrageous act took place.” In Berlin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel expressed sympathy for the victims and their families and pledged that Germany would do everything in its power to investigate the crime. “It is a terrible event,” she said.

World: Foreigners named in New Zealand quake

A RUNAWAY DOG darted into an Arizona apartment and found a cool place to hide — the bottom of the refrigerator. A Yuma Fire Department spokesman said the family told firefighters the pooch rushed into their home when they opened the front door and kept snapping at them. When they went to the fridge to get some food to try to lure the dog outside, the animal jumped in the appliance and refused to come out. Firefighters found the small black terrier-type dog crouched on the bottom shelf, snapping at anyone who approached.

A DIABETIC OREGON man with no feeling in his feet woke up to find his dog had eaten part of his right foot, including three toes. The Roseburg News-Review reported that the 61-year-old man, whose name was not disclosed by police, was in serious condition after calling 9-1-1 at about 3 a.m. Tuesday. The man told emergency responders that he fell asleep on his couch and woke up to find pieces of his foot missing. Roseburg veterinarian Alan Ross said the dog may have been trying to rid his owner of dead tissue and said he may have been attracted to the foot if it were infected or gangrenous.

A WORLD WAR II-era letter addressed to a woman at a Red Cross hospital in California has been delivered nearly 70 years after its postmark in Alabama, but the mystery of the message remains. The letter is addressed to Miss R.T. Fletcher, American Red Cross Station Hospital, Camp Roberts, Calif. That building was torn down years ago. Women who worked at the hospital were typically nurses or administrative clerks. Camp Roberts was closed in 1970, so the letter was delivered to the Camp Roberts Historical Museum. Curator Gary McMaster said he hasn’t opened the letter for privacy reasons.

Experts are struggling to identify many of the bodies because of the extent of injuries caused to people who were crushed. Only 13 names have been publicly released.

Up to 22 Teamsters protesters picketed in Port Angeles on Lincoln Street in front of the Goodwill Industries store, while up to about a half-dozen picketed at the Forks Transit Center Park & Ride, said Greg Bellamy of Port Angeles, a protest organizer.

SPOKANE — Three State Penitentiary units at Walla Walla were on lockdown Wednesday after an inmate stabbed a guard in the head with a pen and two other guards were injured as they tried to aid their colleague, prison officials said. The guard attacked shortly before 7 p.m. Tuesday night suffered puncture wounds to the face and a dislocated shoulder, prison spokeswoman Shari Hall said. The guard, whose name has not been released, was attacked by 28-year-old Marcus Van Cleary, who was being held in a close custody unit for mentally ill inmates at the Walla Walla prison, the Department of Corrections said. The guard, as well as the two who tried to help and suffered minor injuries, was treated and discharged from a hospital.

Eight other sites Sponsored by Teamsters Local 117 in Tukwila, protests also were slated for eight other locations across Washington. The sites included Monroe. That’s where Monroe Correctional Complex Officer Jayme Biendl, 34, was killed Jan. 29, allegedly by a male prisoner already serving life without the possibility of parole while Biendl, a female, was working alone in the chapel. The protests lasted from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., but those arriving early did so only about 12 hours after another Corrections officer was injured, this one from Walla Walla State Penitentiary at 7 p.m. Tuesday. The male officer was stabbed in the face allegedly by a mental health

offender who was subdued with help from an inmate who put the attacker in a sleeper hold, state Department of Corrections spokeswoman Belinda Stewart told the Peninsula Daily News on Wednesday. Everyone involved in the incident was treated and discharged from a hospital, Stewart said. The cruel coincidence of protesting safety conditions little more than 12 hours after a colleague was injured wasn’t lost on Corrections Officer Cris White.

Hall said another inmate also jumped in to help and was injured. Van Cleary, 28, is being held in segregation, Hall said. He had been sentenced out of Pierce County for multiple counts of assault with a deadly weapon.

Picketing occurred in Forks, Port Angeles, Aberdeen, Airway Heights, Gig Harbor, Monroe, Pasco, Shelton, Tumwater, Vancouver and Walla Walla.

Remaining on lockdown

Complaints included a lack of adequate video surveillance equipment in prisons, the large number of solitary guard posts, a flawed offender-classification system and a tendency by management to minimize or ignore staff safety concerns, the union said in a press release. “The DOC needs to start listening to its employees and taking staff concerns seriously,” said Greg Bellamy, an employee at Clallam Bay Corrections Center. The union is demanding the Legislature pass laws to prohibit mandatory overtime for Department of Corrections nurses and to allow arbitration for employees.

All three units for mentally ill inmates at the Walla Walla prison would remain on lockdown pending completion of the investigation, the Corrections Department said. Meanwhile, prison employees represented by the Teamsters union conducted previously planned informational pickets at 11 locations around the state Wednesday, demanding safer working conditions. The daylong picketing was prompted by the Jan. 29 death of Monroe prison guard Jayme Biendl, who was strangled at the prison chapel.

At about 10 a.m. Wednesday, he carried a placard that urged “safety, dignity and respect for state Correction workers” as a buffer against rain-spiked wind that swept across Lincoln Street. The climate of violence Corrections officers work in is “crazy,” said White, a Clallam Bay Corrections Center employee for eight years. “That’s the world we live in every day away from our families to keep the community safe,” said White,


Help raise awareness “With what happened [Tuesday] night, man, they need to start putting in safety measures for us,” he said. Biendl’s spirit “is living with us,” Bellamy added. “If she’s looking down on us, she’d be proud.” A team from the National Institute of Corrections reviewed this week the circumstances and conditions surrounding Biendl’s death. That review will conclude today, Stewart said Wednesday. The team will brief Gov. Chris Gregoire on Friday and issue recommendations by March 19, Stewart said.

Man found crushed under truck’s tire Woolley was making a delivery to Sunshine Propane’s holding facility at about 6 p.m. Wednesday when he called into his Whatcom County employer reporting truck trouble, said Jefferson County Sheriff Tony Hernandez. Clifford was instructed

to drive the truck to Tacoma for repair but after the end of the call was not heard from again, Hernandez said. At 7:44 a.m., a Sunshine employee arrived at work to find Clifford pinned under the truck’s rear wheel. Police arrived and called

in the State Patrol as well as an investigator for the Bureau of Labor and Industries. The investigation is still pending, but the death is being treated now as an industrial accident, Hernandez said.

Wind: Gusts reached 33 mph in Port Angeles Continued from A1 The National Weather Service reported sustained winds of more than 20 mph across the region, with gusts of 49 mph in Forks, 33 mph in Port Angeles, 35 mph in Sequim and 59 mph in Port Townsend. “We had a powerful lowpressure system moving off the coast north towards Vancouver Island,” said Dennis D’Amico, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Seattle. Strong pressure gradients associated with the cold front powered the southeast winds, D’Amico said. Other peak gusts were 56 mph in LaPush, 36 mph in Diamond Point, 40 mph in Quilcene and 52 mph in Brinnon. Farther afield, the Weather Service said, wind gusted to 98 mph at Hurricane Ridge, to 79 mph at Tatoosh Island and to 72 mph at Destruction Island. Fallen trees and limbs in power lines caused outages, which were reported from the east side of the Peninsula to the Pacific Coast.

Public Utility District

A tree went down through a power line on Patterson Road in Port Angeles. The morning outages wreaked havoc on the westbound commute on U.S. Highway 101 into Port Angeles after several traffic lights were disabled. Traffic was backed up to the Morse Creek S-curve. The State Patrol directed traffic until the lights were

restored at about 9:15 a.m. PUD spokesman Michael Howe said the wind damage began at about 7:30 a.m. As of 6 p.m., the remaining areas without power were along Patterson Road southeast of Port Angeles, the Joyce area, Lake

Sutherland and Barnes Point. “We’re making progress,” Howe said. At 10 a.m., about 750 customers around Joyce and another 750 east of Port Angeles were without power. “The others are spread

out west and in Sequim,” Howe said. An outage at the PUD office on U.S. Highway 101 east of Port Angeles resulted in computer and telephone delays, Howe said. City of Port Angeles spokeswoman Teresa Pierce said no power outages occurred in the city. A downed tree blocked both directions of U.S. Highway 101 at Barnes Creek at Lake Crescent at 2:35 p.m. The state Department of Transportation cleared the tree and reopened the road at 3:10 p.m. Puget Sound Energy spokeswoman Abigail Elliott said 500 Jefferson County customers lost electrical power shortly after noon. “Crews are responding to outages as they happen,” Elliott said. PSE officials had restored power to all but 44 of those customers by 6 p.m. High winds and heavy seas canceled the Port Townsend-Coupeville ferry service aboard the MV Chetzemoka for much of the morning and part of the afternoon.

Hood Canal Bridge remained open, with waves splashing over its south side. D’Amico said the Peninsula lowlands can expect showers today, with a stronger system moving in Friday night. Friday’s storm will pack sustained winds of 15 to 20 mph with gusts in the 30 to 45 mph range, D’Amico predicted. Lowland snow is not in the forecast, but the freezing level will remain below 3,000 feet through the weekend, D’Amico said. Olympic National Park reported 117 inches of snow at Hurricane Ridge on Wednesday. Hurricane Ridge Road was closed Wednesday due to high winds and drifting snow.

“It’s our next step,” she said. “We have to assess the needs of the building so we know what to do with it.” Kidd began proposing that the building be repaired and kept as a historical landmark in 2007, when the city put it on its surplus list. City Hall chose to try to sell the building after determining it would cost too much to keep. City staff members couldn’t recall Wednesday how much the repairs were anticipated to cost. But County Administrator Jim Jones, who toured the building at the time with city staff, said the repairs were projected to cost between $800,000 and $1 million. “That assumed there were no structural problems that couldn’t be easily rectified,” he said.

Health care suit causes split at top


Thursday, March 3, 2011


Governor’s brief says AG out of step with policy The Associated Press

VANCOUVER, Wash. — Democratic Gov. Chris Gregoire asserted in a federal court brief that Attorney General Rob McKenna’s participation in a lawsuit challenging the federal health care overhaul does not represent Washington’s position. McKenna, a Republican, is one of 26 state attorneys general who are challenging the constitutionality of the individual mandate in the 2010 Affordable Care Act — the requirement that all Americans enroll in a health insurance plan or pay a penalty. On Monday, Gregoire filed the brief, which aims to inform the federal judge ruling on the lawsuit that Washington state is already moving forward with implementing some provisions of the new law.

Governor wants law “The brief that he submitted says the whole act should be thrown out. I disagree with that. I want to move forward. I want to implement it,” Gregoire said Wednesday. “I’ve asked the court to remember he came in as attorney general; he does not represent the speaker, the majority leader or the governor. He does not represent the policy of the state of Washington.” Among some of the provisions of the new law already in effect are requiring family policies to cover adult children to the age of 26, prohibiting insurance policies from denying coverage to young children with pre-existing conditions, a $250 rebate to seniors to

offset out-of-pocket expenses for prescription drugs under a Medicaid program and requiring states to set up high-risk pools to cover adults who can’t find other insurance. Gregoire’s office said the state has already received a $1 million federal grant to help with the cost of implementing the law. The prospect that implementation could be halted “would be particularly inappropriate,” Gregoire wrote, “when the governor of Washington is not being represented by the attorney of the state here and, in fact, welcomes further implementation of the act in the state.” “We’ve already implemented some very positive things when it comes to the Affordable Care Act,” said Karina Shagren, spokeswoman for the Governor’s Office. “We want to make sure the judge realizes what has been implemented, how the citizens of Washington have benefitted and that it could be very disruptive to halt implementation now.” Gregoire also told U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson that McKenna does not represent her or any other state official.

Constitutionality McKenna spokeswoman Janelle Guthrie said the state attorneys general want the U.S. Supreme Court to consider the constitutionality of the law as soon as possible. “We are supporting expedited review by the U.S. Supreme Court,” Guthrie said. “We’re kind of wondering why the Department of Justice hasn’t moved forward in either requesting a stay or making a motion to appeal so we can all continue the work of creating a health care system that’s affordable and accessible to all Americans without violating their rights.” Three federal judges have upheld the constitutionality of the law, while two have struck it down. The Obama administration has asked U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson to clarify his Jan. 31 ruling striking down the health reform in its entirety. Vinson ruled that the whole law is unlawful because the mandate is central to its functioning. The White House has appealed the adverse rulings to two appeals courts rather than asking the Supreme Court to review the contradictory rulings on an expedited basis. Last week, McKenna joined the other state attorneys general in opposing the administration’s request for clarification on whether Vinson’s ruling is, in effect, an injunction that would halt implementation of the law in every state.

Push to consolidate education in limbo Goal same but houses taking different paths By Donna Gordon Blankinship

The Associated Press

SEATTLE — The future of a plan to consolidate most of the state’s education work into a new Department of Education was undecided Wednesday as the governor prepared to pump up her promotional campaign for consolidating state education programs and boards into one cabinet-level department. The proposal by Gov. Chris Gregoire was passed by the Senate Education Committee with one major change. Higher education was removed from the consolidation effort. The Senate Ways and Means Committee held a hearing on the bill but no vote. Meanwhile, the chair of the House Education Committee wasn’t sure if the governor’s proposal was the right plan for the state’s children. “The governor’s proposal began with a predetermined outcome. That may or may not be the wisest, most prudent approach,” Rep. Sharon Tomiko Santos, D-Seattle, said Wednesday. Santos said everyone agrees that the state’s education system is fragmented and that Washington needs a seamless system from early learning through college, but she supports a different approach that may or may not come to the same conclusion. She supports a proposal by Rep. Kathy Haigh,

D-Shelton, that would form a Washington Education Council to develop a recommendation for a new preschool-through-college education system. Santos didn’t want to call Haigh’s proposal a step back. “It takes a measured step forward,” she said. The House approved Haigh’s bill Wednesday night. The chair of the Senate Education Committee said another education study wouldn’t get much support in the Senate. “We have studied far too long,” said Sen. Rosemary McAuliffe, D-Bothell. McAuliffe said the governor is right: It’s time for one leader to make sure the plans for fixing the state’s education system are carried out.

Room for compromise She added, however, that despite the apparently broad differences between the House and the Senate at this point in the session, there’s room for compromise and enthusiasm for finding a solution that works for both houses. The presence of two representatives, including Haigh, at the governor’s news conference shows they all have areas of agreement, McAuliffe said. McAuliffe said the governor is working with everyone to make sure a compromise is reached. “I know she’s going to work very hard to bring everyone together,”

she said. The governor’s plan would eliminate the state Board of Education, the Department of Early Learning and nearly 10 other departments, boards and committees and place their functions under a new Department of Education. The Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction would still oversee K-12 education, but most administrative matters would move to the new department. Under Gregoire’s proposal, the governor would — starting next year — nominate a secretary of education, who would need confirmation from the state Senate. Gregoire said she foresees a nationwide search for a professional to head the department, someone with vision and leadership skills but also expertise in education. A preliminary financial analysis of the governor’s proposal, as it stands in the Senate bill, estimates it would save the state more than $500,000 in the 20112013 biennium. The governor said at a news conference Wednesday afternoon that the failures in the state’s education system are obvious to nearly everyone: Kids are starting kindergarten unprepared to learn, too many students are dropping out of high school because they’re not ready for higher-level learning, the state is not getting

enough kids ready for science- and math-intensive jobs, college freshmen are forced to take remedial classes and college credits some kids earn during high school are not being accepted by the state’s universities. “We know what’s failing in the system. It’s no hidden secret to any of us. We need to stop denying it. We need to stop the studies and excuses,” Gregoire said.

National support She said her plan was met with enthusiasm at the National Governors Association meeting earlier this week, where she was told by education experts and other governors that Washington is leading the nation in making bold plans to eliminate education silos that other states will adopt in the next few years. Gregoire said she has heard some people think she is trying to change things too quickly. “We can’t go fast enough,” she said. Sen. Rodney Tom has taken the idea one step further and proposed eliminating the superintendent of public instruction as an elected position. His idea would require a constitutional amendment because the superintendent’s job was established by the state constitution. His proposal, which consists of two bills, was heard in the Senate Education Committee but has not come for a vote.

Briefly . . . Town hall meetings set by lawmakers State Rep. Kevin Van De Wege plans town hall meetings in Port Townsend and Sequim on Friday, March 11. State Rep. Steve Tharinger will join him at the Sequim meeting. He has a scheduling conflict that will not allow him to attend the Port Townsend meeting, his office said. The Port Townsend meeting will be from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Port Townsend Community Center, 620 Tyler St. The Sequim meeting will be from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Sequim Prairie Grange, 290 MacLeay Road. The two legislators will have wrapped up the first half of the 2011 legislative session and want to hear feedback from constituents about proposals under consideration in Olympia, they said in a statement. “It’s always good to meet with constituents in per-

son,” Van De Wege said. “When people can have a conversation with their legislators face to face, they feel more involved in the process.” Said Tharinger: “People are particularly concerned about the economy and what we’re doing in Olympia to help. “This is an opportunity for people to ask questions and get information about the issues that affect them.” The two represent the 24th District, which covers Jefferson and Clallam counties and part of Grays Harbor County. The events are free and open to the public. For more information, phone 360-786-7916 or 360-786-7904.

Health exchange OLYMPIA — State senators approved on a partyline vote a bill that begins to lay the groundwork for the federal health care overhaul in Washington. Senators voted 27-22 to set up a state health insurance exchange — a publicprivate association

designed to promote competition and drive down costs for individuals and smaller businesses when the federal law is fully implemented. Under the 2010 Affordable Care Act, states are required to set up these exchanges by Jan. 1, 2014. Kent Democratic Sen. Karen Keiser said lawmakers are taking this step to keep the federal government from making decisions for the state. Under the federal law, the federal government will establish the exchange if the state fails to do so.

Cost for the daylong workshop is $72. During the 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. lunch break, Sonheim will give a free presentation about her book, which includes 52 drawing exercises “to open the mind and quell the fear of creativity,” the event announcement said.

PA’s pool ‘in strong financial shape’ Facility that had to be saved now eyes growth By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Now that the William Shore Memorial Pool is on solid financial ground, the next steps will be to replace the antiquated pipes and to install air-conditioning and insulation for the 50-yearold building, said Steve Burke, executive director of the pool. Burke, who was appointed by the metropolitan parks district board in November, said the pool is paying down its debt by generating revenue from its swimming programs. “Because we’re in strong financial shape, looking at all of these projects, we’re not looking at going back to the taxpayers at all to fund any of this,” Burke told about 80 people at a Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce luncheon at the Port Angeles CrabHouse Restaurant on Monday. “We can do that with the money we have now, mostly because of the increase in programing that we’re able to do to generate more revenue,” Burke said.

improvements” because the building is not insulated, Burke said. “Our pool is in great financial shape,” Burke said. When the metropolitan park district was formed, it needed to borrow money to operate the pool. Levy money did not come in until the following year. The pool was previously funded by the city of Port Angeles.

The Port Angeles public pool is closed this week for maintenance. It will reopen Sunday. While most pools around the state get more than 70 percent of their revenue from levies, the William Shore Memorial Pool gets half its revenue from levies and half from its programs.

Debt payment on track

Paying for the pool Taxpayers pay 14.85 cents per $1,000 assessed property tax valuation to the pool district — a measure voters approved in 2009. Burke said the percentage coming from programs could reach 70 percent in coming years. In January, programing revenue for the pool was $25,000 — more than twice the $12,000 budgeted. “I think we still have even more room for growth,” Burke said. “Our biggest struggle is that we’ve been running out of room at our pool to do things.” Looking ahead, Burke said the pool eventually will have a children’s splash-

as we would like to.” Burke said the air circulation in the building is poor because there is no heating, ventilating and airconditioning system. The old air-conditioning system corroded. “Nowadays, they actually have products that can withstand the chlorine air that we have to recirculate,” Burke said. An energy conservation audit found that the building is “a target-rich environment for energy

safety, not just swimming strokes, he said. “We’re heading towards wanting to provide for any kid that wants to learn how to swim that we can provide for that,” Burke said. “That’s not a revenue issue for us as a pool and for the board; it’s just a community-value issue — that we don’t lose any of our kids within our community because they couldn’t swim.” Cherie Kidd, chairwoman of the William Shore Memorial Pool commission, said the pool is “looking sharp and doing good.” “We opened it up to the community, and the community response was overwhelming,” said Kidd, who is also a Port Angeles City Council member. “Thanks to the community support, this year, we are celebrating our 50th anniversary of the William Shore Memorial Pool.” Russ Veenema, Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce executive director, described the pool as a community success story.

“We had to go into debt for a little bit, and we’re on track to paying off that debt at the end of this year,” Burke said. “That will put us probably two years before we anticipated being able to pay off that debt.” Burke said he gets calls from other pool officials and school districts from around the state asking how Port Angeles saved its pool. He said the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association is even considering moving a district meet to Port Angeles next year because of the financial stability of the pool.

Peninsula Daily News for Thursday, March 3, 2011




Obama ‘DOMA’ action out of bounds PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS said his view of same-sex “marriage” is “evolving.” Apparently he thinks that the law should Cal be based on a Thomas kind of Darwinian jurisprudence which allows it to “evolve” and become whatever the ruling politicians at a given moment say it is (or isn’t). How else to explain the decision by the president and his attorney general, Eric Holder, not to defend the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), signed into law by President Bill Clinton in 1996? The Senate vote was 85-14; the vote in the House was 34267, an indication of overwhelming public support to keep marriage for opposite-sex couples. Let’s leave aside for the

moment any moral, religious, historical or cultural reasons for maintaining the legal status quo on marriage, which has precedent dating to biblical times. The president and his attorney general have concluded that because DOMA is being challenged before the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, which they say “has no established or binding standard for how laws concerning sexual orientation should be treated” — they will circumvent or overrule judicial authority and decide the matter for themselves. This “we are the law” thinking is what we oppose in Middle East dictators. Holder contends that because of past “discrimination” against gays, the Second Circuit Court will, or should, apply a more “rigorous standard” to such cases and when they do, DOMA will be found unconstitutional. Doesn’t this sound strangely like Richard Nixon’s approach to the law? It was Nixon who told David Frost in 1977:

“When the president does it, that means that it is not illegal.” So when the president and his attorney general refuse to defend a law they have taken an oath to uphold, isn’t that the other side of the same coin? Imagine the reaction from the Left had George W. Bush announced his administration would no longer defend Roe v. Wade because he thought it unconstitutional and it would eventually be overturned by the Supreme Court. Former Speaker Newt Gingrich in an interview on Friday, said he thought the ObamaHolder decision not to defend DOMA in the courts might be an impeachable offense and that the House may “zero out (defund) the office of attorney general and take other steps as necessary until the president agrees to do his job.” He later softened his stance on the issue of impeachment, saying instead in a statement to reporters that, though impeachment is clearly not an appropriate action, “Congress has every

Peninsula Voices Against HB 1366 I sent e-mails to state Reps. Steve Tharinger and Kevin Van De Wege and state Sen. James Hargrove about three weeks ago. I received an immediate reply from Sen. Hargrove both by e-mail and by phone. Rep. Tharinger replied, stating that he was a cosponsor of [HB 1366] and stated his reason why, which I did not agree with, but I appreciated his quick response. Although I sent two e-mails to Rep. Van De Wege, he never responded. This bill is an attempt to eliminate limited service pregnancy providers who provide a much-needed service to our community and to our state at no cost to the taxpayer. I would suggest that our representatives would visit the local providers and meet the volunteers who work there and see what really takes place there

responsibility to demand President Obama live up to his constitutional obligations.” The president and attorney general believe there are no “reasonable” arguments in favor of retaining DOMA. Constitutional attorney John Whitehead disagrees. Whitehead tells me he thinks the Obama-Holder tactic is “an attempt to provide cover for the president’s decision to achieve a repeal of DOMA through the courts as opposed to an evenhanded evaluation of the strengths of the legal arguments.” Whitehead notes that Holder has acknowledged a binding circuit court precedent which holds that “classifications based on sexual orientation are subject to ‘rational basis’ scrutiny.” Under such scrutiny, Whitehead says, “a legislative classification based on sexual orientation would be upheld if there is any conceivable basis to support the distinction; a court is not to judge the wisdom, fairness, or logic of the legislative choice.”

Our readers’ letters, faxes

Whitehead adds: “Because rational basis scrutiny is extremely deferential to the decision of the legislature, the determination that it applies to a particular classification basis is usually outcome determinative; where rational basis scrutiny applies, that equal protection challenge is almost always denied.” That is why President Obama and Attorney General Holder are wrong to pre-judge the outcome of this case in the courts, not to mention their rejection of congressional authority.

Family planning

Cal Thomas critic

As a health educator, I have been active on issues of access to reproductive health services. This is why I’m so concerned about the deep cuts in the proposed state budget that will impact access to family planning. It’s not often that legislators come across clear-cut cases of what works and what doesn’t as they create policies and budgets. But here’s one: Family planning works as preventive, cost-effective health care. Family planning provides many needed services for low-income women including birth control, cancer screening and annual exams. It helps women and families by reducing unintended pregnancies. It also saves the state a

How about “hypocritiCal” Thomas? Like most Republicans, Thomas ignores the widely publicized, actual rationing of health care by commercial insurance companies (often denying critical, lifesaving care to people who have paid their premiums) while devoting a whole column (“Slippery Slope: Monetary Value Of Life,” Feb. 24 PDN) to the evils he perceives of an unrealized potential for government rationing of health care.

whole lot of money. For every dollar we invest, we save more than $4 in costs associated with unintended pregnancies. Report after report shows how family planning benefits entire communities. That’s why it’s a priority

for global development today. That’s why it was a bipartisan issue until it was politicized unnecessarily. It was a Republican, President Nixon, who signed into law the first national family planning

program called Title X. President Nixon said: “No American woman should be denied access to family planning assistance because of her economic condition.” For all these reasons, family planning should be

End Iraq, Afghan wars to help budgets WISCONSIN, INDIANA, OHIO, Idaho . . . these are the latest fronts in the battle of budgets, with the larger fight over a potential shutdown of the U.S. government looming. These fights, radiating out Amy from the occuGoodman pation of the Wisconsin Capitol building, are occurring against the backdrop of the two wars waged by the U.S. in Iraq and Afghanistan. No discussion or debate over budgets, over wages and pensions, over deficits, should happen without a clear presentation of the costs of these wars — and the incalculable benefits that ending them would bring. First, the cost of war. The U.S. is spending about $2 billion a week in Afghanistan alone. That’s about $104 billion a year — and that is not including Iraq. Compare that with the state budget shortfalls. According to a recent report

by the nonpartisan Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, “some 45 states and the District of Columbia are projecting budget shortfalls totaling $125 billion for fiscal year 2012.” The math is simple: The money should be poured back into the states, rather than into a state of war. President Obama shows no signs that he is going to end either the occupation of Iraq or the ongoing war in Afghanistan. Quite the opposite; he campaigned with the promise to expand the war in Afghanistan, and that is one campaign promise he has kept. So how is Obama’s war going? Not well. This has been the deadliest period for civilians in Afghanistan since the U.S.-led invasion began in October 2001. Sixty-five civilians were reportedly killed recently in Kunar, near Pakistan, where mounting civilian casualties lead to increasing popular support for the Taliban. 2010 was the deadliest year for U.S. soldiers as well, with 711 U.S. and allied deaths in Afghanistan. Soldier deaths remain high in 2011, with the fighting expected

to intensify as the weather warms. The Washington Post recently reported that Obama’s controversial CIA-run drone program, in which unmanned aerial drones are sent over rural Pakistan to launch Hellfire missiles at “suspected militants,” has killed at least 581 people, of whom only two were on a U.S. list of people suspected of being “high-level militants.” Ample evidence exists that the drone strikes, which have increased in number dramatically under Obama’s leadership, kill civilians, not to mention Pakistani civilian support for the United States. Meanwhile, in Iraq, the democracy that the neocons in Washington expected to deliver through the barrel of a gun with their “shock and awe” may be coming finally, not with the help of the U.S., but, rather, inspired by the peaceful, popular uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt. However, Human Rights Watch has just reported that as people protest and dissidents organize, “the rights of Iraq’s most vulnerable citizens, especially women and detainees, are routinely violated with impunity.” Protests have erupted in

another Tahrir Square, in Baghdad (yes, it means “liberation” in Iraq and Egypt), against corruption and demanding jobs and better public services. Iraqi government forces killed 29 people over the weekend, and 300 people, including humanrights workers and journalists, have been rounded up. Yet, the U.S. continues to pour money and troops into these endless wars. Rolling Stone’s Michael Hastings, whose reporting exposed the crass behavior of Gen. Stanley McChrystal, has just exposed what he calls an illegal operation run by Lt. Gen.

PA man, 78, still missing By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Mary Ann Hudson is asking the public to stay on the lookout for her 78-year-old brother. Robert “Bob” Goss drove away in Hudson’s silver 2006 Jeep Cherokee sometime before dawn Monday and hasn’t come back since. Family members are growing more and more concerned because Goss gets confused around strangers, rarely drives and couldn’t get up if he fell, Hudson said. The Clallam County Sheriff’s Office issued a missing/endangered person alert for Goss on Tuesday. He was last seen wearing a red pullover sweatshirt and a navy-blue cap with a “BERLIN” logo. Goss is 6 feet 3 inches tall, weighs 160 pounds and has short gray hair and brown eyes. Hudson believes her brother left in the middle of the night to buy some Coca Cola. As her brother’s caregiver, she has access to Goss’ bank account, which hasn’t been used since his disappearance. “I check that twice an hour,” Hudson said. Goss has lived with Hudson on Finn Hall Road, between Port Angeles and Sequim, for about two years. Hudson helped the Sheriff’s Office post missing person fliers Wednesday. She also spoke with worried family members, some of whom live in New Zealand, and searched the area where a utility worker reported seeing Goss on Monday morning.

The utility worker thought he saw Goss driving near the intersection of Old Olympic Highway and U.S. Highway 101. Hudson said she hoped the Sheriff’s Office would launch a search-and-rescue operation. “I feel like if it was a 7-year-old boy, they’d have someone looking for him,” Hudson said. Clallam County Sheriff Bill Benedict said deputies are constantly looking for Goss. He said there hasn’t been a search-and-rescue operation because they don’t know where to start.

The Sheriff ’s Office would initiate such an operation if the Jeep is found, Benedict said. “My guess is that he headed out of the county,” Benedict said. The State Patrol and other law enforcement agencies have the Washington licence plate number — 161 VUO — and will alert the Sheriff’s Office if they spot the Jeep, Benedict said.

MUCH LIKE THE latest and greatest Charlie Sheen meltdown, this year’s salmon returns look to be a rager. With a Matt healthy amount of fish forecast to Schubert come back to Puget Sound waters, a hastily scheduled media blitz may very well be in the offing. Coho conversing with Couric. Chinook sharing with Schlesinger. Pinks parsing words with Povich (“Mr. Humperton . . . . you are not the father!”). Oh yes, it won’t be long before “Strait salmon” is a trending topic on Twitter. The highlight of the hysteria: projected strong chinook returns to Puget Sound and Columbia River. The latter’s fall chinook run (760,000 fish) constitutes the fifthlargest of its kind since 1948, while the former (243,000 summer/fall chinook) is an improvement on last year’s projections. Throw in some strong pink and coho returns predicted for Puget Sound, and there appears to be some hope for a satisfactory salmon season. If only the Columbia River coho prospects — key to the coastal salmon fishery — were a little sunnier, we’d have it all. Alas, unlike our man Charlie Sheen, we can’t always be winning. Here’s a quick glance for area anglers:

Deadline looms for NFL labor Players, owners meet with possible lockout coming later tonight By Howard Fendrich

Puget Sound prospects

The Associated Press

About 980,000 coho are forecast to return to Puget Sound streams this year, about 367,000 more fish than last year’s forecast. In addition, nearly 6 million pink salmon are expected to return to Puget Sound this year. That forecast is 3 million below 2009’s record return but still an abundant run, said Steve Thiesfeld, Puget Sound salmon manager for the state Department of Fish and Wildlife. “This is shaping up to be a really good year in Puget Sound for both coho and pink salmon,” Thiesfeld said in a new release, also noting that an additional 17 million pink salmon are forecast to return to Canada’s Fraser River this year. “A portion of those Fraser River fish will make their way through the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the San Juan Islands boosting opportunities for Washington anglers.” Summer/fall chinook salmon returns to Puget Sound are expected to total about 243,000 fish, just above last year’s projection of 226,000. Most chinook fisheries in Puget Sound likely will be similar to last year, said Thiesfeld. Translation: Don’t expect to be blown away.

WASHINGTON — Locked in a multibillion dollar staredown, the NFL and the players’ union were expected to resume mediation this morning, 15 hours before the current collective bargaining agreement expires. The sides have met for nine days before federal mediator George Cohen, with no reports of significant progress. Goodell T h e y talked for four hours Wednesday, before the NFL contingent departed to attend a meeting of the 32 teams’ owners at a hotel 25 miles away in Chantilly, Va. Wednesday evening, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, two members of the owners’ labor committee and two top lawyers for the league returned to meet with Cohen at his office, with Goodell and the attorneys leaving last at 9:45 p.m. The NFL Players Association was not present for that meeting. The CBA runs out at midnight Eastern time as tonight becomes Friday, and among the possibilities are that the owners lock out the players or that the union decertifies. Whatever happens this week could cause the country’s most popular sport to lose regular-season games to a work stoppage for the first time since 1987. Or, perhaps, everything could be resolved by management and labor in an industry with annual revenues topping $9 billion. NFL owners, who are not required to take a lockout vote, ended their special labor meeting Wednesday night without taking any action. “The committee has not made any decision as to what will happen upon expiration of the current agreement if we don’t have a new one by [tonight],” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said. Today’s owners session was canceled, and most owners, including the Patriots’ Robert Kraft and the Cowboys’ Jerry Jones, were headed for home.

Ocean prospects Anglers can expect an ocean fishery for chinook and coho this summer similar to 2010, said Doug Milward, ocean salmon fishery manager for Fish and Wildlife. “Last year, fishing was good for chinook and fair for coho,” said Milward. “The number of salmon available for this summer’s ocean fishery is expected to be similar to last year, so anglers should see another good year of fishing.” Nearly 250,000 hatchery chinook are expected to return this year to the lower Columbia River. Those salmon traditionally have been the backbone of the recreational ocean chinook fishery. The 362,500 coho bound for the Columbia River — not quite at 2009’s historically good levels — also account for a significant portion of the ocean catch.

Public meetings Forecasts were developed by Fish and Wildlife and treaty Indian tribes. Fishery managers have scheduled a series of public meetings during the next few weeks to discuss potential fishing opportunities before finalizing seasons in mid-April. Turn



Matt Schubert/Peninsula Daily News

Neah Bay senior basketball star Drexler Doherty led the Red Devils to their third state tournament trip in four years. He was also the Peninsula’s leading scorer this season.

Shot in the dark Neah Bay’s Doherty grows into more complete player By Matt Schubert

Peninsula Daily News

NEAH BAY — There was no need for an alarm clock in Drexler Doherty’s neighborhood. His steady dribble pounded the blacktop each morning on the “Church Court” across the street from his Neah Bay home. A grade-school-aged basketball junky with serious ambitions, the Red Devils’ future star rarely missed an opportunity to get a few shots before school. While he chucked up shot after shot at the modest outdoor rims, another day dawned on the edge of the Earth, and his neighbors rose to the sounds of one child’s hoop dreams. “I’d wake up at 6 every morning and go shoot for probably an hour or hour and a half before I went to school,” said Doherty,

whose Red Devils open Class 1B Elite Eight play today in Spokane (see story today on Page B3). “I had a fifth-grade teacher who lived right across the street from me. He said that’s how he used to wake up for school in the morning. He’d hear my basketball going.” All of these years later, Doherty’s basketball aspirations are still there.

Top scorer After starting for the Neah Bay varsity each of the past four seasons, he’s cemented himself as one of the program’s all-time top scorers. Doherty has led the North Olympic Peninsula in scoring each of the past three season, and is averaging a career-high 22.4 points per game this year.

1B Elite Eight Earlier this season, he became the eighth Red Devil to top the 1,000-point plateau. He will likely finish his somewhere among the school’s top five in career scoring by the time the season is over. Yet, according to first-year Red Devils head coach Gerrad Brooks, it is Doherty’s growth in other areas of his game that make him so dangerous this year. “He’s really been able to create shots for others this year,” Brooks said of Doherty, who averages 3.1 assists per game this year as an off guard. “He’s done a good job of not only scoring but getting other people opportunities to score as well, and defensively he gets after it.” Indeed, Doherty led the team with 3.2 steals per game while operating at the top of the full court press.

Pitcher Aaron Laffey, formerly of the Cleveland Indians, holds his son, Braeden, before a spring training baseball game against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday in Goodyear, Ariz. Laffey was traded to the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday.

M’s deal for pitcher The Associated Press

GOODYEAR, Ariz. — Aaron Laffey’s role was unclear with Cleveland. Maybe he’ll find more clarity in Seattle. The Indians traded the left-hander to the Mariners on Wednesday for minor league infielder Matt Lawson, who will report to Cleveland’s minor league camp. Laffey split time between Cleveland and Triple-A Columbus last season, and he bounced back and forth between the rotation and bullpen. The 25-year-old, who was once considered a rising star in the Indians’ system, was in the mix to be the club’s No. 5 starter this season. goes through the motions. He’s hoping that will change soon. “It’ll just continue to increase, increase the time a little bit, increase the distance and little by little

In Seattle, Laffey will be reunited with former Indians manager Eric Wedge and pitching coach Carl Willis. He’s likely to be looked at as a possible No. 5 starter with the Mariners. “With Aaron, we felt we had the opportunity to acquire a left-handed pitcher with major league experience,” Seattle general manager Jack Zduriencik said in a statement. “We will bring him to spring training and give him a chance to compete for a position on our pitching staff.” Laffey went 2-3 with a 4.53 ERA in 29 games last year for the Indians, who drafted him in 2003. He was 18-21 in 79 career games with Cleveland. hopefully in a few weeks here I’ll be getting up on the mound a bit, or at least throw to a catcher down and be working toward a bullpen at some point,” Kelley said.

Labor: Lockout Continued from B1

The ninth session at the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service also included Goodell and all 10 members of the owners’ labor committee and lasted about four hours. Labor committee members who attended the talks Wednesday were: Kraft, Jones, Jerry Richardson of the Carolina Panthers, Art Rooney of the Pittsburgh Steelers, John Mara of the New York Giants, Mike Brown of the Cincinnati Bengals, Clark Hunt of the Kansas City Chiefs, Dean Spanos of the San Diego Chargers, Mark Murphy of the Green Bay Packers, and Pat Bowlen of the Denver Broncos. After the day’s early session, the NFL contingent got into a fleet of a half-dozen black SUVs and headed to Chantilly. Va., to fill in other owners on the status of the negotiations. About 20 minutes after the league’s group left at 2 p.m., the NFL Players Association’s negotiators group departed on foot, walking in the direction of the union’s headquarters, a couple of blocks away. New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, a member of the NFLPA executive committee, attended the mediation. Like Mawae, Brees hadn’t attended this round of negotiations, which began Feb. 18. But now all members of the union’s executive committee have been present at least once. “We’re talking,” Mawae said when he left. “It’s better than not talking.” NFL general counsel and lead labor negotiator Jeff Pash reiterated early Wednesday that it is possible that the league and union could agree to extend the deadline for arriving at a new CBA. “We have to see where we are. We’ve said that’s an option. We’re not taking anything off the table,” Pash said.

“We can’t comment, and even more so we’re certainly still involved in our dialogue, and so there is no comment,” Jones said. Indianapolis Colts owner J i m m y Irsay said the owners welcomed the opportunity to be Jones updated on negotiations, but there was little reason for them to remain in Washington as the deadline approaches. “We had the chance to ask questions, but we didn’t break with a lockout vote or anything like that,” Irsay said. Asked what he expected to happen heading toward the CBA’s expiration, he added: “I never have expectations, except to have A, B, C, D and E, and to always plan for F. “It changes, a chessboard that moves around and things happen at unusual hours.” Because mediator George Cohen told both sides to stay silent publicly about the current talks, no one has revealed any specifics about what progress might have been made. The biggest sticking point all along has been how to divide the league’s revenues, including what cut team owners should get up front to help cover certain costs, such as stadium construction. Under the old deal, owners got $1 billion off the top. They entered these negotiations seeking to double that. Among the other significant topics: a rookie wage scale; the owners’ push to expand the regular season from 16 games to 18 while reducing the preseason by two games; and benefits for retired players.

Schubert: Fish Continued from B1 Halibut hangup A meeting schedule, salmon forecasts and information about the salmon season-setting process are available on Fish and Wildlife’s website at http://wdfw.wa. gov/fishing/northfalcon/. Phil Anderson, Fish and Wildlife director, said department staff will work closely with tribal co-managers and constituents to develop fisheries that meet conservation objectives and provide fishing opportunities on abundant runs of wild and hatchery fish. “We will continue to design fishing seasons that not only meet conservation goals for salmon, but also minimize impacts to other species,” said Anderson in a news release. “It is important that we take into account the entire ecosystem when managing our fisheries.” State, tribal and federal fishery managers will meet March 5-10 in Vancouver, Wash., with the Pacific Fishery Management Council to develop options for this year’s commercial and recreational ocean chinook and coho salmon fisheries.

In related news, halibut quotas across the North Olympic Peninsula will be slightly larger this year. That doesn’t mean anglers can expect longer seasons, however. In fact, the Area 6 (eastern Strait of Juan de Fuca) and 9 (Admiralty Inlet) seasons could be one day shorter, according to The Herald in Everett. Fish and Wildlife has sent tentative season regulations to the International Pacific Halibut Commission. Here they are: ■ Neah Bay: Open in May for two weeks, Thursdays and Saturdays only, before reopening in June if enough quota remains. This year’s quota (108,792 pounds) is a 7.5 percent increase on last year’s number (101,179). ■ Area 6 and 9: Open May 5-29 on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays only. Also open the entire Memorial Day weekend (aka Port Angeles Derby time).

Dawgs: Season is headed in wrong direction Continued from B1 Then reality smacked the Huskies. They’ve dropped five of nine since that blistering start, including two straight in the league. They have no shot at the conference crown entering the final weekend and even their NCAA tournament fate is being questioned thanks to the recent struggles. “I don’t think we’ve progressed nearly as much as we needed to. When we were 4-0 and even at 7-1 we talked about we can’t remain stagnant,” Romar said.

“We’re doing well right now, but teams are going to get better as the season progresses. “We have to make sure that we get better and I don’t think we have improved as much as we should.”

Rough month February was especially damaging to the Huskies, who tumbled out of the Top 25 and most of the national discussion by getting swept on the road at the Oregon schools early in the month. They rebounded with

three straight wins before a one-point loss at No. 18 Arizona and then losing to rival Washington State last Sunday. Romar’s analysis of where the Huskies stand was straightforward. And he was highly critical of their inability to keep their focus on the defensive end, especially against the rival Cougars. After holding Washington State to just 24 points in the first half — and still trailing 24-17 at halftime — the Huskies surrendered a season-high 56 in the second-half.

“The last game that we played was a classic example of totally understanding who we were for a half. I thought we played good defense for a half. Unfortunately we missed eight layups in the first half and every time we missed those layups, I think mentally we deflated a little bit,” Romar said. “In the second half, we lost concentration as to who we were. If we miss 40 layups in a game, if we would still continue to defend, we would have a chance. “Whenever the Huskies

Steven Jobs returns to introduce a new iPad By Miguel Helft

The New York Times

SAN FRANCISCO — Steven Jobs, Apple’s chief executive, interrupted his medical leave on Wednesday to introduce the company’s much-anticipated new iPad, a thinner, faster and lighter version of its popular tablet computer that will sell at the same prices as the original models. J o b s alluded to his leave but neither commented on his health nor s a i d whether he Jobs planned to return to the company in the near future. “We’ve been working on this product for a while, and I just didn’t want to miss today,” he said. The iPad 2 includes front and rear cameras, allowing video conversations, and comes in black and white versions. It will be available March 11 in the United States at prices ranging from $499 to $829. It will be available in more than two dozen other countries March 26, Jobs said. But the details of the

product were somewhat overshadowed by Jobs’s unexpected presence. His appearance lifted the mood of Apple’s fans and investors who have worried about the deteriorating health of the company’s visionary leader. Jobs was greeted with a standing ovation as he walked on stage in an auditorium here, and within minutes, Apple’s shares jumped more than $3, or nearly 1 percent. “It is clear that he is still in charge,” said Tim Bajarin, an analyst with Creative Strategies. “His presence underscores how important he feels the iPad is to Apple’s future.”

Potshots at rivals Though gaunt, Jobs, who turned 56 last week, looked roughly the same as he had in October, the last time he appeared in public to introduce a product. In a sign of the intensifying competition in the tablet market, Jobs not only promoted the features of the overhauled iPad, but also took potshots at Apple’s rivals, calling them “copycats” and saying they had been unable to match the first iPad on features or price. The market for tablet

The iPad 2 is shown at an Apple event after the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater in San Francisco on Wednesday. computers is far more competitive now than when Apple began selling the iPad nearly a year ago. Companies like Samsung, Dell, Motorola, Research In Motion and Hewlett-Packard have introduced rival tablets, though some will not be available until later this year.

Rivals’ inroads But Apple’s rivals have yet to make significant inroads with consumers, in part because they have had difficulty matching the iPad’s pricing. The Motorola Xoom, for instance, costs $800. The Samsung Galaxy Tab is available for about

$500, but at 7 inches, is much smaller than the iPad, which is nearly 10 inches. The new iPad is built around a new chip that Apple designed, called A5, which is faster than its predecessor. Jobs said graphics performance would be nine times as fast. The new iPad is 8 millimeters thick, one-third thinner than the original and slightly thinner than the iPhone 4.

PORTLAND, Ore. — A class-action lawsuit against one of the country’s largest seafood processors has taken a hit after a judge said the plaintiffs failed to show the company used its enormous market share to suppress prices paid to fisherman. In fact, U.S. District Court Judge Owen Panner said in a ruling Tuesday that the evi-

dence indicates Pacific Seafood has expanded the market for whiting and that fishermen have been getting better prices as a result. Prices paid to fishermen are at the heart of the lawsuit filed by two southern Oregon commercial fishermen against the seafood giant. Attorney Mike Haglund filed the suit in summer 2010.

It alleges that after buying up processors from California to the Gulf of Alaska, Pacific controls 50 percent to 75 percent of the market for whiting, Dungeness crab, Pacific shrimp and groundfish. The suit accuses Pacific Seafood of using that market share and coordination with other processors to drive down prices paid to fishermen. Such practices would violate federal anti-trust laws. Pacific Seafood has denied the allegation. A trial is scheduled to begin

next February. The plaintiffs asked the judge to prohibit Pacific Seafood from coordinating prices for whiting with Westport, Wash.-based Ocean Gold, the largest whiting processor on the West Coast. Panner said in denying the motion that the evidence doesn’t support the plaintiff’s allegation. “Instead, the evidence indicates that since 2006 defendants’ combined operations have expanded the market for whiting,” Panner wrote in the ruling.

Oil, gold, even stock prices up amid continued Libyan fighting The Associated Press

NEW YORK — U.S. oil prices rose to new 2½-year highs Wednesday amid continued heavy fighting in Libya. But Wall Street seemed relatively unruffled by the latest climb, and stocks edged higher after a surprisingly strong report on hiring by private companies raised hopes that the job market may be improving. April crude futures in New York closed up $2.60 to

$102.23 a barrel, after gaining $2.66 Tuesday. The London oil price, considered a better barometer of world prices, rose as high as $117.81 a barrel, also a new 2½-year high. The International Energy Agency estimated that as much as 1 million barrels of Libya’s total 1.6-million-barrel daily crude production is now on shutdown. But Saudi Arabia has pledged to make up the difference. The IEA said “some European refiners indicate

there is ample crude until at least the end of March.” Some investors continued to push money into gold, which closed up $6.50 to a record $1,437.20 an ounce in New York futures trading, after rising as high as $1,441. Silver also rallied, up 41 cents to $34.82 an ounce. Payroll processor ADP said private employers added 217,000 jobs last month, well above the 180,000 analysts had predicted. This raised hopes that the government’s employment

report coming up Friday could show a decline in the unemployment rate, which is currently 9 percent. The Federal Reserve also reported that the U.S. economy expanded broadly over the last two months. All 12 regions covered by the survey reported “modest to moderate” growth, including a pickup in retail sales. Rising stocks outnumbered falling ones 2-to-1 on the N.Y. Stock Exchange. Consolidated trading volume was 4.2 billion shares.

SPOKANE — Red Lion Hotels Corp. reported its fourth-quarter loss grew to $4.5 million, or a loss of 24 cents per share, from a loss of $2.7 million, or a loss of 14 cents a share a year earlier. Taking into account one-time items, the Spokane-based hotel chain reported a fourth-quarter loss of $7.2 million, or a loss of 39 cents per share. Company officials aren’t optimistic about the first quarter of 2011. “Unfortunately, similar to many midscale hotels across the country, hotels in many of our key markets are experiencing a softening of demand in the first quarter that the company anticipates will reverse in the second half of the year,” said Jon Eliassen, president and CEO, in a statement. For fiscal 2010, Red Lion reported a loss of $4.7 million, or 25 cents per share. After one-time items, the company reported a loss of $8.2 million, or 45 cents per share. The hotel chain owns the Red Lion Hotel in Port Angeles.

Costco earnings

Bernanke warns

ISSAQUAH — Costco Wholesale Corp.’s fiscal second-quarter net income rose 16 percent as the wholesale club operator benefited from stronger business overseas and growing membership. It extends Costco’s run as one of the stronger retailers in the slow economy. Shoppers have flocked to its stores for deals on basics and more recently for housewares and other discretionary purchases. Costco, based in Issaquah, on Wednesday reported net income of $348 million, or 79 cents per share, for the period that ended Feb. 13. That’s up from $299 million, or 67 cents per share, a year ago.

WASHINGTON — Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke believes a House Republicans plan to cut $61 billion in federal spending this year would reduce economic growth and cause job losses. Bernanke, speaking to the House Financial Services Committee on Wednesday, said the economic impact of the cuts would come over the next two years. The Fed chief said they would reduce growth by as much as two-tenths of a percentage point. “That would translate into a couple hundred thousand jobs. So, it’s not trivial,” he said.

Eyeglass bill OLYMPIA — The state House has unanimously approved a bill to allow doctors to buy eyeglasses made by prison inmates for their Medicaid patients. Medicaid patients have been unable to have new eyeglasses covered by the government health benefits program since January because of budget cuts in the wake of revenue shortfalls. Rep. Judy Warnick, R-Moses Lake, introduced House Bill 1613 to allow inmates in the Correctional Industries program to make the glasses, which doctors could purchase and then sell to patients at cost. Warnick said the bill — which is now under consideration by the state Senate — “would allow someone learning a trade to provide eyeglasses to people who

NORMAN, Okla. — Tests to determine if bone fragments found on a remote South Pacific island are the remains of Amelia Earhart are inconclusive, researchers announced Wednesday, dashing hopes they might help explain what happened to the famed aviator who disappeared in 1937 while trying to fly around the world. Scientists at the University of Oklahoma attempted to detect human DNA from three bone fragments recovered last year by The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery, a group of aviation enthusiasts in Delaware that found the pieces of bone while on an expedition to Nikumaroro Island, about 1,800 miles south of Hawaii. The group has uncov-

ered several artifacts, including some old makeup and glass bottles from the 1930s that suggest Earhart and navigator Fred Noonan may have died as castaways on the island, said Ric Gillespie, director of the group. “We knew this would be a tough job to get DNA from stuff that had laid around for 70 years,” Gillespie said in a phone interview.

However, another “thing” that characterizes this time of year is tax season! And I apologize for denting your carefully nurtured and likely well-deserved denial. Indeed, tax season! And the 15th of April looms larger each day. Most of us who are not extraordinarily wealthy have more than a passing interest in any legitimate tax deduction that might present its happy self, and since extraordinarily wealthy people are probably not spending their time reading this column, I’ll presume that includes most of us, so stay with me here. According to The Wall Street Journal (where extraordinarily wealthy people probably DO spend some of their time), there are some tax deductions available to family “caregivers.” Interested? Me, too! So let’s start with a couple of definitions. Most people who are family caregivers don’t think of themselves as “family caregivers.” They think of them-

HELP LINE selves as people Harvey who are simply doing the right thing: doing what they’re “supposed to do.” Doing what they choose to do, out of love. So that “caregiver” word applies to somebody else. Wrong! I’m going to give you my standard definition, which is not quoted in The Wall Street Journal: A “caregiver” is somebody who is taking care of somebody who needs to be taken care of, whether they like it or not. A bit colloquial, perhaps, but adequate for our purposes here today.


‘Care recipient’ A “care recipient” is the person who is being cared for — who is receiving the care — OK? Now, here’s where you need to start paying attention. Some caregivers may be able to claim a care recipi-


ent as a dependent on their tax returns, which could reduce your taxable income by as much as $3,650 for the 2010 tax year. In order to qualify for that, you must have provided more than half of a care recipient’s financial support for the year, and that person must be either a relative, living with you or on their own, OR a nonrelative who has lived with you for the past year.

Gross income limit The care recipient has to be a U.S. citizen or a legal resident of the U.S., Canada or Mexico. Her or his gross income for last year cannot be more than $3,650 — not counting Social Security. Oh, and she or he can’t have filed a joint tax return. If said care recipient does share your home, when you’re running the numbers to see if you hit the “more than half” standard, you can include a share of your mortgage, utilities and housingrelated expenses. That could help. Now, here’s a common scenario in my world: Several family members (usually the “kids,” but not always) are kicking in to keep Mom (or whomever) afloat.

If all of you together meet the 50 percent or better mark for providing financial support to the care recipient but no one of you does, the family could file an Internal Revenue Service Form 2120, “Multiple Support Declaration,” wherein you collectively designate one of you to claim the dependent deduction for the year. Whoever pulls the long straw has to have provided at least 10 percent of the care recipient’s annual expenses. I know: That will work for some families and not so well for others. And how do you divvy up the proceeds (or savings or bounty or whatever)? I don’t have the foggiest idea and would sooner play “chicken” with a freight train. Do not call me!

Dependent-care credit Ever onward, caregivers who work at a paid job and either claim a care recipient as a dependent or couldn’t do that because of the $3,650 income requirement (see above) also may be able to claim a “dependent-care credit” up to $1,050. According to the compassionate wording on IRS Form 2441, the care recipient must be unable to “physically or mentally . . . care for himself or herself.”

Annalee Hermann of Sequim celebrated her 86th birthday March 2 with her children at Wildfire Grill, owned and operated by her grandniece, Laura Negus, and husband Denny. A large family party, taking place today at her daughter’s home on Lake Farm Road will be attended by her children; her sister, Maxine Fors; and numerous nieces, nephews, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Mrs. Hermann has 21 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren and four more great-grandchilMrs. dren arriving this summer. Hermann She has been chosen Honorary Pioneer for the 2011 Sequim Irrigation festival.

Consult experts And while I always appreciate enlightenment, I am not a tax professional, so if any of you are thinking that any of this might be worth doing, I strongly suggest you talk to somebody who knows what they’re talking about, which could well include Tax-Aide, the free help offered through AARP. My job is to say, “Hello! Here are some things that are out there that might do some caregivers some good,” because “caregivers” are good, decent people who are taking care of somebody who needs to be taken care of, whether they like it or not. And caregivers will take all the help they can get.

happen next: Some of you will contact me with detail and nuance regarding any or all of the above, and you will probably be mostly right, most of the time.

If you’re paying for some or all of a care recipient’s medical and/or dental (dental?) expenses, and you itemize deductions, you might be able to subtract from your taxable income those medical or dental (dental!) expenses that exceed 7.5 percent of your adjusted gross income, which means, exactly, what? Well, if your “adjusted gross income” happened to be $50,000, you could claim a deduction for the medical/dental bills you paid (as in, not paid by insurance) that were above $3,750. This could include insurance premiums, out-ofpocket dollars for doctors, hospitals and medical equipment and, in some cases, nursing home bills. Oh, and you have to provide at least half of the recipient’s financial support to pull this off. Still there? OK, if you are a “single” caregiver (meaning not married), you might be able to change your filing status to “head of household,” which would mean that more of your income would be taxed at a lower rate, and the standarddeduction amount would increase to $8,400 from $5,700. That’s good. Now, here’s what will

Fun ’n’ Advice

Behavior ruins family event DEAR ABBY: Every year for the past six years, I have hosted a family gathering at my home. Each and every year, my cousin’s wife, “Jodie,” does everything possible to ensure that we all know she’s upset about something. She’ll sit on my couch as far removed from the family as possible, grumbling under her breath to her husband. Jodie never says more than four words to me (the hostess) the entire time — none of which are “thank you” — then she feigns food poisoning! (No one else gets sick.) This has been going on longer than the six years I have hosted this event. My question is, would it be tactless of me to ask my cousin to leave his wife home next year? I am not the only family member who is disgusted with Jodie’s behavior. I think we’d all have a better time if she wasn’t there. Would that be wrong of me? Sick of Coddling Her in Illinois

DEAR ABBY cerned about his dating my sister. Van Buren He’s going through some hard times due to the loss of a family member. Blanche homed in on this and moved in with him to “help him grieve.” Abby, I know the damage my sister can cause. It never turns out pretty. She uses people to get what she wants, then if it turns sour, she becomes a stalker. She has refused my recommendations for counseling. I feel obligated to let Stanley’s family know about Blanche’s history. She’s trying to prevent me from contacting him because she doesn’t want her past revealed. What do you suggest? Fearful Sis in Missouri


Dear Sick: For a person to repeatedly act the way you have described is not normal behavior. Your cousin’s wife may suffer from some significant emotional problems. Is no one in your family close enough to your cousin to express concern about it? While it would, indeed, be tactless to tell him to leave his wife home instead of bringing her to a family gathering, it might be less so to mention gently that you have noticed she doesn’t enjoy herself when she visits — and that her attendance isn’t compulsory. Then, listen to what he has to say because it may be enlightening.

Dear Fearful Sis: I strongly recommend that rather than telling Stanley’s family your sister’s history, you tell Stanley directly. To do otherwise would be interpreted as an underhanded attempt to break up his romance, would not be appreciated and could only bring them closer.

Dear Abby: My sister “Blanche” has always depended on men to support her. She was married briefly and after her divorce started going from one man to another. I can’t count how many relationships she has been in. Her children are grown, but when they were young, they had to endure their mother’s lifestyle. Blanche has just moved in with another man. She’s 45 and has no job or money but has gotten good at selling her pity story. Unfortunately, her new boyfriend, “Stanley,” is an old friend of mine. Although we haven’t been in contact for years, I’m con-

Dear Seeking Slumber: When one spouse snores so loudly that it keeps the other awake, it could be a symptom of a serious medical problem. While my readers may be kind enough to offer home remedies, my advice is that the snorer should consult his or her physician to find out what’s causing it.

Dear Abby: Help! If one spouse snores, the other can’t sleep. Please print some solutions to this problem that have worked for your readers. We sleep in separate beds almost every night. Seeking Slumber in Santa Barbara

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may think you have everything and everyone under control but, when you least expect it, someone will surprise you with a complicated and stressful situation.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Emotional deception is apparent. Private affairs must be kept that way or you will be caught in the middle of a melodrama.

Protect your assets and don’t meddle. 3 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Take on as much as you can and show everyone what you can do. Push for what you want and be relentless when it comes to dealing with slackers or people who talk big and do little. Good fortune can be yours with the right partner. 3 stars

teers for the upcoming season. Located next to the Olympic Community Action Programs’ Thrift Shoppe in Port Hadlock, the pea patch has 35 plots for individuals and the food bank. This spring, a communal herb and flower garden will be added. “We want to create a space that’s inviting for gardeners and community members — a place to sit, eat lunch and relax in the garden,” said Ellen Sabina, AmeriCorps volunteer garden coordinator. In 2010, the Pea Patch donated 300 pounds of produce to local food banks, and this year, Sabina hopes to give more by expanding the area devoted to growing for the food bank. “The heart of our mission is to increase the availability of safe and nutritious food in the commu-

nity,” Sabina said. “One way we do that is by offering space and support for those who want to grow their own food, but we also want to bring lots of fresh vegetables directly to the people that need it the most at the food bank.”

More volunteers sought In addition to new gardeners, the Pea Patch also seeks more volunteers. “We will need many hands this spring to help get the food bank garden prepped and planted,” Sabina said. “We’re looking for greenhouse space to start our seedlings, and folks to help maintain and harvest throughout the summer. “I’ve been amazed by how generous the community has been already,”

she said. “A little organic seed company in Bellingham donated $300 worth of vegetable seeds, and students at Chimacum High School are helping start them in the high school greenhouse. “We’re off to a good start.” The Pea Patch’s $25 annual rental fee includes a 5-by-20-foot plot with access to water, shared tools and compost in a fenced, sunny area. Full or partial scholarships are available. Gardeners are also asked to help with the effort to grow food for the food bank. To sign up, volunteer or donate to the OlyCAP Pea Patch, e-mail Sabina at or phone 360-385-2571, ext 6317.

Can E85 gas damage an engine? Dear Doctor: I own a 2010 GMC Yukon Denali (Flex Fuel) with less than 1,500 miles. The service manual highly recommends the use of E85 or premium gasoline 91 octane or higher. I have spoken to people that say prolonged use of E85 can damage the engine. I’ve been using E85 on a regular basis since my savings are almost 70 cents per gallon. The service manual does mention that E85 shouldn’t be mixed with regular gasoline; it states to use one or the other. I would like to continue using E85, providing it won’t damage the engine. What is your opinion? Al Dear Al: As long as the owner’s manual states that you can use the E85 and your engine continues to runs well, I would continue the use of the E85 flex fuel. When car companies design the fuel delivery system for the flex fuel, they use different parts in the fuel delivery system to accommodate the different fuels. At a 70-cent-per-gallon savings, the E85 is the way to go.






Dear Doctor: I have a long history of intermittent key and door lock problems on my 2008 Nissan Versa Hatchback, which I purchased when new. I have had the following issues: I have opened the door to get out and before my foot touched the ground, the doors locked. Sometimes, the hatch stays unlocked and the driver’s door locks. I have approached the car within 5 feet and the car starts beeping with the lights flashing. The dealer reprogrammed the locking procedure along with the key fobs. I’m at my wit’s end. Can you help? Leslie Dear Leslie: There is no history on this problem on any of my research

Van’s engine cuts out Dear Doctor: I have a 2002 Kia Sedona minivan with an intermittent problem. The engine cuts out (as if it died for two or three seconds) and then lunges forward. Also, when sitting at a light with my foot on the brake, the rpms raise slightly and lower a few times. It felt like someone was tapping my rear bumper with their car. Had I not had my foot on the brake, I would have hit the car in front of me. It also stalls sometimes while stopped, but not near as often as the

information sites. My first thought is that it could be a faulty key fob that signaled the security system when you walked up to the car and the alarm sounded. I would use the plain ignition key or remove the battery from the key fob as a starting point. The key fob can send a false signal to the security system module, causing the problems you are having.

lunging occurs. I cleaned the throttle body as recommended to no avail. Now, the mechanic says it’s possibly the mass air flow sensor or the throttle position sensor but can’t be sure unless it has the problem while hooked up to the machine. Any suggestions? John Dear John: It can be difficult to make repairs when no “check engine” light is present. This always brings me back to often overlooked maintenance. I recently had a similar problem and checked the basics and found the fuel pressure was low and traced it back to a partly blocked fuel filter. Have the technician check all the basic maintenance items.
