Dogs on track for mystery site today BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — Steve Markwell and 124 dogs from Forks’ Olympic Animal Sanctuary are due at their yet-undisclosed sunbelt destination early today, said a dog-rescuer who is helping Markwell relocate the animals. Markwell slipped out of Forks early Saturday morning driving a semi with a 53-foot trailer loaded with the dogs that had been housed in a two-story warehouse at 1021 Russell Road. Robert Misseri, president of the Smithtown, N.Y.-based Guardians of Rescue, said Monday he has been in regular contact with Markwell, tracking the progress of the semi and its passengers. U.S. NAVY

Test flights raise a ruckus Local authorities remain in the dark on coming plans

Whidbey Island residents, angry at window-rattling damage from the test flights of the heavily armed, radar-suppressing aircraft, are banding together in the hopes of eliminating the test strip near Coupeville.

Environmental impact statement


PORT TOWNSEND — Noise from Navy jet tests can be disruptive and scary for some North Olympic Peninsula residents. But local authorities have not been notified by the Navy as to the extent of its EA-18G Growler test flights out of a test base near Coupeville, just across Admiralty Inlet from Port Townsend.

The Navy is developing an environmental-impact statement to bring in two more squadrons of Growlers by 2015. The last day of the public comment period on the statement is Jan. 3. “We haven’t received a formal notice of any kind about the development of an environmental impact statement,” said Port Townsend Mayor David King, “We have no knowledge about what they are doing at this point.”

Tests of the Growler aircraft, originating from Outlying Landing Field, or OLF, Coupeville — about 8 miles as the plane flies from Port Townsend — began in 2008 and have prompted continuous complaints since then, The Seattle Times reported Monday. The OLF landing strip was built during World War II when planes were slower and quieter. The field is now a key training ground for Growlers, Boeing-built jets based at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island about 10 miles north near Oak Harbor. The Navy called a moratorium on using OLF in late May until next month. TURN



Taking breaks with dogs The trip has been slowed because Markwell is the only driver and he has stopped to feed and water the dogs and take the animals out for breaks, Misseri said following cellphone conversations with Markwell. Neither Misseri nor Markwell has disclosed where the semi is headed. Guardians of Rescue is organizing the dogs’ release to other organizations from an undisclosed rendezvous that Misseri would only say is in a warmer climate. “The safety of those animals is our only concern. This is going to be a tremendous endeavor,” Misseri said. Markwell was on the road with the dogs before he contacted Misseri to find a place for them, and their meeting place was selected late Saturday.

‘Hour from anywhere’ He described today’s rendezvous at a distribution center as being located “an hour from anywhere.” “There isn’t another place on the planet that would let that truck pull up and unload those dogs,” Misseri said. TURN

SEATTLE — The state’s online health insurance exchange was offline overnight until nearly 9 a.m. on Monday despite a looming deadline for Washington residents to sign up for health insurance — or at least try to start the process.

A3 Briefly: Nation Judge allows gay marriage to continue SALT LAKE CITY — A federal judge said Monday he will allow gay marriage in Utah to continue, denying a request from the state to halt same-sex weddings until the appeals process plays out. U.S. District Judge Robert J. Shelby’s decision came three days after he overturned the state’s ban on same-sex marriage, ruling it is unconstitutional. Utah lawyers are expected to ask a higher court to put the process on hold. The county clerk in Salt Lake City immediately began issuing licenses after Shelby’s ruling Friday, and hundreds more gay couples were lined up Monday to get married. The ruling has drawn attention given Utah’s long-standing opposition to gay marriage and its position as headquarters for the Mormon church. Lawyers for the state waged a legal battle on several fronts as they sought to stop the samesex weddings.

Fallout of health care law tightens key races Democrats face struggles in elections BY THOMAS BEAUMONT THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Thanks to the fiasco that followed the launch of President Barack Obama’s health care law, Democrats are bracing for hard-fought Senate races in states they had hoped to win with ease just two months ago. Weeks of technical problems with the health insurance enrollment website and anxiety over insurance cancellations for millions of people have erased early advantages enjoyed by Democratic candidates Gary Peters in Michigan and Mark Udall in Colorado. As the election year dawns, those problems have widened the narrow opening for Republicans to retake control of the Senate. “There’s not a lot of wiggle room here. Colorado is definitely in play,” said Craig Hughes, a Denver-based Democratic consultant who ran Obama’s 2012 Colorado campaign and Democratic

Sen. Michael Bennet’s 2010 campaign. “The website was a disaster, and the process of changing insurance is inherently difficult. This is not Peters going to be a smooth process.” Republicans need to pick up six seats to win the Senate in a midterm election year that typically hurts the party in the White House.

Possible GOP aid A victory in either Michigan or Colorado — both carried by Obama in 2012 and 2008 — would greatly boost their chances. Democrats already are defending Senate seats in seven states that Obama won, including three where incumbents are retiring. Peters, a third-term congressman, and Udall, a first-term senator, both voted for the 2010 health care bill. They echoed Obama’s often repeated but now discredited statement that people who had health insurance before the law took effect could keep it if they were satisfied.

By mid-November, 4.2 million Americans had received insurance cancellation notices, according to an Associated Press review, including at least 225,000 in Michigan. Not even 7,000 Michigan residents had enrolled through the federal insurance exchange as of Nov. 30, according to U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. That number is expected to increase, but the early glitches kept sign-ups well below expectations. At the same time, unemployment in Michigan hovers above the national average, and its biggest city, Detroit, is in bankruptcy.

Pitted against turnout Democrats are fighting to reverse the historic drop-off in Democratic voter turnout in midterm elections, a problem that’s compounded by the fact that Republican Gov. Rick Snyder, who’s also on next year’s ballot, is polling well ahead of his littleknown Democrat challenger, former U.S. Rep. Mark Schauer. In Colorado, at least 106,000 people had received cancellation notices as of mid-November, while fewer than 10,000 had enrolled in the state-run health insurance exchange.

Maria Alekhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova were granted amnesty under a law passed last week, which was largely Alekhina viewed as the Kremlin’s attempt to soothe criticism of Russia’s human rights record ahead of the Winter Olympics in Sochi in February. The third member, Yekaterina Samutsevich, was released on suspended sentence months after all three were found guilty of hooliganism motivated by religious hatred and sentenced to two years in prison for the performance at Moscow’s main cathedral in March 2012.

Five attackers stormed the offices of the channel owned by the provincial government of Salaheddin in the city of Tikrit north of Baghdad, one blowing up a suicide car bomb at the gate and two more setting off explosive suicide belts inside, police said.

No extension for Boston bombing suspect? THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BOSTON — Federal prosecutors said the Boston Marathon bombing suspect should not get more time to decide whether to ask to move his trial out of the city. Lawyers for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev said a Feb. 28 deadline to decide whether to ask for a change of venue is premature because Attorney General Eric Holder isn’t expected to announce if prosecutors will seek the death penalty until late January.

Quick Read

U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz asked a judge Monday to keep the deadline as is. She said the defense has provided no compelling reason to extend it and doing so indefinitely will adversely impact the prompt administration of justice. Tsarnaev has pleaded not guilty in the April 15 bombing, which killed three people and injured more than 260 others. His brother died following a shootout with police.

PT Food Bank changes pickup days for holidays BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT TOWNSEND — The Port Townsend Food Bank has changed its day of operation for the next two weeks in order to accommodate the holidays. The food bank is normally open Wednesdays but has switched to Mondays for Dec. 23 and Dec. 30, according to its director, Shirley Moss. The hours of operation, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., are unchanged. The distribution on Monday included main course extras, with visitors given a choice of ham, turkey or catfish for their holiday meals, while the Dec. 30 distribution will be the normal fare, Moss said. 2013 was a big year for the food bank, Moss said, a trend she expects will continue through the next year. “We grew in 2013 in terms of all the people we served but also increased our resources,” she said. “It was a good year for us.” Her 2014 wish list is already fulfilled with the planned installation of a walk-in freezer scheduled for the spring.

Jobless rate stays steady on Peninsula Clallam, Jefferson lose 460 positions in November BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

Clallam and Jefferson counties shed a combined 460 jobs last month — mostly in the service sectors — but saw little change in their unemployment rates, according to the latest state estimates. Clallam County lost 340 jobs in November, including 220 service-producing jobs, as its unemployment rate rose from a revised 8.3 percent in October to a preliminary 8.5 percent in November, the state Employment Security Department reported Monday. All but 20 of those lost jobs were in the private sector. The Jefferson County unemployment rate remained at 8.2 percent in November despite the loss of 120 jobs. Service trades accounted for 110 jobs lost in Jefferson County.

Rates vs. trends

25,130 Clallam County residents with a job and 2,350 seeking work, Employment Security said. Jefferson County had 10,540 residents with a job and 940 looking for work. The Peninsula unemployment rates were slightly higher in November 2012 than they were last month. Unemployment was 9.1 percent in Clallam County and 8.7 percent in Jefferson County 13 months ago. November estimates for initial, continued and exhausted unemployment claims were not published with the jobless report released Monday. Meanwhile, the statewide jobless rate fell from 7 percent in October to 6.8 percent in November, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The national jobless rate dropped from 7.3 percent in October to 7 percent last month. Across the state, Grays Harbor County had the highest November unemployment rate in the state at 11.3 percent. Whitman County in Southeast Washington had the lowest unemployment among the state’s 39 counties at 4.7 percent.

Unemployment rates can differ from trends in the number of jobs gained or lost because of changes in the size of the labor force and because of people who commute to other counties for work, regional labor economist Jim Vleming has said. ________ Jobless rates do not Reporter Rob Ollikainen can be account for those who have reached at 360-452-2345, ext. stopped looking for work. 5072, or at rollikainen@peninsula Last month, there were

Grants available for events, PA police given projects encouraging tourism $125,000 grant Department plans to fill vacancy BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — The city’s Police Department plans to hire an officer to fill an anticipated vacancy using a $125,000 federal hiring grant. The Port Angeles Police Department was awarded the federal Community Oriented Policing Services, or COPS, grant in September after applying in June, Deputy Police Chief Brian Smith said. The grant will pay for about half the cost of a fulltime police officer for three years. Smith said. The city will pick up the rest.

Third since 2009

“I’m not sure we should move into the recruitment of an officer yet until we have a discussion on the [city budget] priorities,” Bruch said.

Future vacancy Police Chief Terry Gallagher said the new officer would not add to the city’s 32-member police force. Instead the new hire will fill a vacancy he expects in the near future. As part of the requirements of the grant, the Police Department must hire a military veteran who served after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and keep that officer for at least 12 months after the grant expires, Smith said. Smith said the three COPS grants the city has received have been used to fund four commissioned officer positions since 2009, not including the grant awarded this year.

The 2013 grant is the third the city has received since 2009, Smith added. City Council members voted 6-1, with Councilwoman Sissi Bruch opposed, to accept the grant at their Dec. 17 meeting.

PORT ANGELES — The Olympic Peninsula Visitor Bureau is taking applications for 2014 tourismenhancement grants for events and projects that encourage overnight visitation, bureau Executive Director Diane Schostak announced Monday. “We’re going fishing,” she said. The bureau next year expects to award some $30,000 worth of tourism grants on behalf of Clallam County. The funding comes from a 4 percent lodging tax in

unincorporated Clallam County. That includes motels, campgrounds, RV parks and Olympic National Park lodges. Clallam County collects about $400,000 per year in total lodging tax revenue, a portion of which is distributed in the form of the tourism enhancement grants. “We administer them on behalf of Clallam County,” Schostak said. “We’re kind of an inbetween.” The lion’s share of county lodging tax revenue — $380,000 was budgeted for 2014 — is used to market the North Olympic Peninsula.

The grants are typically for $5,000. “We are delighted to offer these grant funds to support projects and events that attract overnight visitors and add to the quality of our guests’ Olympic Peninsula experiences,” Schostak said in a Monday announcement.

According to a statewide travel impacts study, Clallam County tourism accounts for 3,240 jobs and $212.3 million in annual spending, Schostak said. Applications are reviewed throughout the year as long as funds are available. “We really want people to be successful,” Schostak said. “That’s what this fund is for.” For more information about the tourism grants or to apply, click on www. or phone Schostak at 360452-8552.

County officials say they are monitoring the Tolt River at Carnation for potential flooding. Steady rainfall has brought the river up to flood alert level, but only minor flooding in low-lying areas is expected. County staff will moni-

Past recipients of the tourism grants include the Olympic Adventure Trail Run, Olympic BirdFest, Tour de Lavender and the sprint boat races at Extreme Sports Park.

Plan would end free parking for disabled

State’s disability services may be falling short THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SEATTLE — As many as 550 people living with disabilities in Washington state may have been deprived of services they were entitled to for decades, The Seattle Times reported in Monday’s editions. “Some of them didn’t get some services they would have benefited from, and none of them got the kind of record keeping [the federal government] says they were entitled to,” said Kevin Quigley, who became secretary of the Department of Social and Health Services early this year. Federal law requires that federally funded long term-care facilities provide any services residents need, including behavioral therapy, personal-care training and skill-building exercises.

Report: Drivers abusing placard for handicapped BY JERRY CORNFIELD THE [EVERETT] DAILY HERALD

OLYMPIA — Tens of thousands of drivers with disabilities could soon find their blue placard doesn’t guarantee them unlimited free parking in Washington. A report delivered to lawmakers recommends that drivers whose disability doesn’t prevent them from feeding coins into a meter should pay, and only those physically unable to reach a machine be allowed to park for free. Making some placard-holders pay should remove a major incentive for those who fraudulently use them to park as long as they want in reserved spaces for free, concluded members of a work group who wrote the 47-page report []. “It is apparent that free parking or allowing time beyond that posted for those with the disabled placard or license plate are the likely root causes to fraudulent use of disabled parking privileges,” the report states.

Legislative creation The Legislature created the nineperson work group in June to find ways to curb abuse of the placards and license plates, determine if placards are too easy to obtain and if the practice of allowing physicians sign off on applications is too loose and in need of revising. Many of Washington’s roughly 5.3 million licensed drivers possess disabled-parking placards. In mid-July, the Department of Licensing had 687,005 permanent placards and 47,596 license plates, both of which are renewable every five years. An additional 26,100 temporary placards had been handed out; those are valid for no more than six months. The panel had members from the state departments of licensing and health, the Governor’s Committee on

One of the placards issued by the state Department of Licensing. Disability Issues and Employment, The Arc of Washington and the city of Seattle, where improper use is more prevalent than in any other community in the state. One of the most significant recommendations will be to require holders of the familiar blue placards to start paying for on-street parking unless they qualify for an exemption because of their physical limitations.

Privilege to anyone Existing state law provides the privilege to anyone with a valid disabled parking placard or license plate. The work group tried unsuccessfully to figure out the intent behind that provision of state law. “We were not able to determine intent and could not find a nexus between having a disability and being able to pay for parking,” they wrote. The work group recommends a person be granted a meter-exempt placard if they cannot: ■ Insert coins in parking meters or obtain tickets from ticket machines in parking lots or ramps because of a lack of fine motor control of both hands. ■ Reach up to 42 inches from the ground, because of lack of finger, hand or upper extremity strength or mobility. ■ Approach a parking meter because of use of a wheelchair or other device. ■ Walk more than 20 feet because

of an orthopedic, neurological, cardiovascular or lung condition that is so severe that the ability to walk is almost completely impeded.

Local control urged The report also recommends cities and counties are given the authority to allow for free parking or additional time for all placard holders if they choose. Other recommendations include harsher penalties for illegally obtaining or using a placard. They want punishment changed from a traffic infraction with a fine to a misdemeanor offense that carries a threat of time behind bars. Redesigning placards would help law enforcement officers determine when one is expired or being improperly used. They suggest adding a serial number at the center and a barcode on the bottom that could be easily scanned through the window. If lawmakers embrace the idea, licensing officials estimated it would take two years to design a new placard and develop rules on how it would be given out, according to the report. The work group suggests several wording changes on the forms physicians fill out to make drivers eligible to obtain a placard. Lawmakers are expected to consider the report and its recommendation in the 2014 session which begins Jan. 13.

Evaluations The state will spend the next six months evaluating all residents of longterm care facilities to determine what services they need, Quigley said. Gov. Jay Inslee put $4.2 million in his supplemental budget proposal for evaluations. It is unclear how much it will ultimately cost to fix the problem and how much of a penalty the federal government may impose for years of violations. In a letter to state officials last month, the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services initially estimated a $16 million penalty just for the two years of denied services to 27 residents at Spokane-area Lakeland Village.

Quigley, who noted regulators have not before mentioned this issue to Washington, said he is not focused on the potential penalty. “All that matters right now is, let’s fix it,” he said. “Fix it as fast as we can.” Nursing-facility services make up a small part of Washington’s $900 million system to help residents with developmental disabilities.

State centers About 850 of the more than 20,000 people receiving services live at one of four state residential rehabilitative centers: Lakeland Village, Fircrest School in Shoreline, Rainier School in Buckley and Yakima Valley School in Selah. Most of those residents live in the centers’ intermediate-care facilities, which provide specialized services meant to help participants function better in society. But Lakeland, Fircrest and Yakima Valley also have nursing facilities for residents who need more medical care and help with basic living. Washington started the nursing-facility program in 1992, said Sue Elliott, who at that time served as director of DSHS services for the developmentally disabled. She said lawmakers faced a budget deficit and thought nursing facilities would be less expensive to run than the traditional intermediate-care facilities. They were cheaper because they didn’t provide specialized services, Elliott said.

Nation gets a break for holidays SO, HOW DO you like living in a country that has a budget? Last week, the Senate finished work on legislation that will forestall any government shutdowns for the next two years. Then our lawmakers Gail packed up and Collins went home for the holidays. They kept everything else open and closed down Congress! Finally, America’s getting what it really wants for Christmas. It’s great, right? And people have noticed. Even as a new federal budget was wending its way from House to Senate, a Washington PostABC News poll showed that American approval of the job Congress was doing had rocketed from 12 percent to 16 percent. “The budget agreement is not perfect,” said the Senate majority leader, Harry Reid, before the bill finally passed. This was a major refrain during several days of long, meandering debates. Other favorite themes: bipartisanship, the evils of Obamacare, the goodness of Pope Francis and the Republicans’ strong feelings about unfairness of Senate rules. “Like the frog in the warming water, we do not realize we are being cooked and that the freedoms of Americans are being cooked!” cried Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama. That was a reference to the

rules, although honestly, it could have been about pretty much anything except the pope. We are not going to discuss whether or not he had a point. I believe I speak for the entire nation when I say that there will be no thinking about the Senate rules during Christmas vacation. The debate — perhaps you didn’t catch it — also included a passionate attack on one section of the budget that reduces automatic cost-of-living increases to pensions of military retirees who aren’t actually retired. Let me run over that again. Suppose you joined the Army at 25. You can retire at 45 on a good pension, which is regularly increased through cost-of-living adjustments. Under the new budget law, those increases would be 1 percent lower until you hit 62. “How far have we fallen? Do we have no shame?” cried Sen. Lindsey Graham. A number of observers noted that Graham is a huge fan of reducing cost-of-living adjustments for Social Security recipients. Also, of raising the retirement age for Social Security to 70. But remembering our holiday season, we will accept him at his word that he was simply offended by the sudden and arbitrary nature of the military cut, not posturing for the veteranheavy Republican voter base in the state where he is facing a primary next year. The change in benefits for the military unretired won’t kick in until 2015, and senators from both parties are already standing

in line with proposals to eliminate it. Shouldn’t we focus instead on protecting Americans who are actually past working age? And what about the many, many enlisted men and women who serve in combat, then leave the service after 10 or 12 or even 19 years? You’d think they could at least qualify for a 401(k). Mark this down as something to work on in the new year. Right now, we can celebrate the fact that we do not have a single fiscal cliff to fall over until February at the earliest. That would be the debt-ceiling crisis, when we get to wait and see whether the House Republicans will refuse to pay the nation’s creditors until

Peninsula Voices Social Security Social Security is about to become the victim of what could be the greatest financial fraud in the nation’s history. That is the refusal of the U.S. to repay its $2.8 trillion debt to Social Security. This is now under consideration. The federal government borrowed that $2.8 trillion from Social Security to

finance budget deficits, caused primarily by unnecessary economic crises, unwarranted tax cuts and unfunded wars. Social Security contributed absolutely nothing to the national debt. This $2.8 trillion debt to Social Security is not in “worthless IOUs.” It is in U.S. bonds that are backed by the full faith and credit of the United States.

That debt must now be repaid so that Social Security can pay scheduled benefits through 2033. If taxes must be raised to repay Social Security, so be it. This is a moral and legal U.S. obligation, not a discretionary one. Many Republicans and some Democrats have already removed higher taxes from consideration to repay this debt.

after Brancheau’s death, which remains the subject of a legal battle between SeaWorld and the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Some of the company’s claims are certain to spark an equally aggressive response from animal groups. For example, SeaWorld says in its ad that the life spans of its killer whales are equivalent to those living in the wild, which contradicts claims by animal activists. A widely cited 1995 study found that the mortality rate of killer whales in captivity was about 2½ times that of killer whales in the wild. Naomi Rose, a marine-mammal scientist with the Animal Welfare Institute, said that more recent research suggests the difference is closer to three times. But Christopher Dold, SeaWorld Entertainment’s vice president of veterinary services, said the rate of survival for SeaWorld’s whales is just as high as that of whales in the wild.

Pool to host winter ‘day camp’ during holiday break

PORT GAMBLE — Despite the best efforts of expert bird rescuers, Lili, an injured barred owl, has died. Lili, an 8-month-old female barred owl weighing less than 2 pounds with a wingspan of 15 inches, died in her sleep Saturday night at the West Sound Wildlife Shelter on Bainbridge Island due to injuries. “It wasn’t something we could fix,” said wildlife care technician Brandy Steir.

suffered a bruised eye, a bloody nose and muscle damage. However, when Lili tried to feed, they discovered an injury that could not be healed. “They said she had a broken beak,” Bermant said. Bermant named Lili, after his mother, who died in 2011. Unlike most owls, Lili had a lifetime of contact with humans. Lili was born at the home of Jamie Acker, a Bainbridge Island resident who runs a local banding program, and was previously treated at the wildlife center after a collision with a window. The previous injury was thought to be caused by confusion caused by a window’s reflection.

ANACORTES — Billionaire and Microsoft cofounder Paul Allen has sold a 292-acre island in the San Juans in northwest Washington state for $8 million. The Seattle Times reported the property sold Friday. Allan Island, named after a Navy hero, is southwest of Anacortes. Data from the Northwest Multiple Listing Service shows it was listed in 2005 for $25 million and slashed to $13.5 million in 2009. The Windermere realestate agent who listed the property, Wallace Gudgell, didn’t immediately return the newspaper’s requests for comment Monday. Allen bought the island in 1992 to build a vacation home. It’s only accessible by private plane, boat or floatplane.

UW dorm switch SEATTLE — It’s the biggest midyear housing switch the University of Washington has ever pulled off. When they return to campus in early January, all 602 students who lived in the UW’s high-rise Terry Hall last quarter will check into a brand-new home next door: Lander Hall. The 60-year-old Terry will be demolished next year, part of a major redevelopment of the university’s west campus. “We had no shortage of people excited about living in a new building,” said David Rey, communications manager for the UW’s Housing & Food Services department. An additional 37 students from various other residence halls will move in, as well, since the new Lander building has space for 639 people. Before it’s torn down, Terry will be used one last time — as a Seattle Police Department SWAT team training ground in January. Peninsula Daily News and The Associated Press

Festive Seahawks fans wear Santa beards during Seattle’s loss to Arizona on Sunday.

Hawks beatable at home SEATTLE — If the Seattle Seahawks can close out the regular season with a win against St. Louis, then Sunday’s loss will be rendered irrelevant when it comes to the standings. Yet even if Seattle’s 17-10 John loss to the AriBoyle zona Cardinals doesn’t cost the Seahawks an NFC West title and the top seed in the NFC, one significant revelation did come out of Sunday’s game regardless of how playoff seeding shakes out: The Seahawks are not invincible at home. CenturyLink Field is still as good of a home-field advantage as there is in the NFL. And should the Seahawks take care of business against the Rams next Sunday and secure home-field advantage, they’ll be in great shape to make a Super Bowl run. But watching Seattle’s 14-game home winning streak come to an end, it was clear that the Seahawks will need to do more than just show up to win at home in the postseason.

Playoff preview The Seahawks lost Sunday largely because their offense was uncharacteristically sloppy against a tough defense, and they lost to a hungry team with everything to play for. In other words, they lost to exactly the type of team that could be coming here for a playoff game. Teams like Carolina and San Francisco, which like the Cardinals, feature nasty front-sevens capable of making even the NFL’s best quarterbacks look bad. “Everybody knows that if we handle our business, we’ll have homefield throughout the playoffs, but that’s not going to stop people from coming in and trying to get a win,” said defensive end Red Bryant on Sunday. “Today, we got an example, if we’re fortunate enough to get homefield, of the type of effort other teams are going to give. They played great. “Today, it’s about them. They did what they had to do in terms of getting a victory. I give them a lot of credit.”

Can’t play much worse Had the Seahawks been even mediocre on offense and taken advantage of the defense’s four interceptions, or had the defense not shot itself in the foot repeatedly with penalties, Seattle would likely have spent Sunday evening celebrating an NFC West title. It’s hard to imagine the Seahawks playing any worse than this at home, but then again, you’d have never been able to predict this type of game at home heading into the weekend. So if anyone needed a reminder that the postseason, even going through Seattle, isn’t just a coronation, this loss provided it. “It’s obviously frustrating to lose any game, but we’ll pull a positive out of this and realize that we’re not invincible at home, and we need to get back to that attention to detail on certain things,” said receiver Doug Baldwin.

One more shot to clinch Seattle looking ahead to next game against Rams BY MIKE FERRERI KOMO-TV

SEATTLE — The NFC West Division Championship celebration the Seattle Seahawks were planning will have to wait another week. Sunday’s 17-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals put the festivities on hold . . . once again. Sunday’s loss also put a sudden end to the Seahawks’ 14-home-game winning streak. They lost at home for the first time since falling to the 49ers on Christmas Eve of 2011, 19-17.

“I’m not shocked — you have to be prepared for the good and bad,” Seahawks safety Earl Thomas said. “You just go out there and have fun and play the game and enjoy your teammates out there. “I think we did a great job — you only control what you can control and you live with the outcome.” What the Seahawks are forced to live with now is another week with the NFC West crown dangling out there in front of them. How they pick themselves up and dust themselves off will

define their season more than the loss to Arizona. “ T h e Next Game greats — Sunday they’re not vs. Rams just great because at CenturyLink they win all Time: 1:25 p.m. the time. On TV: Ch. 13 They’re g r e a t because of how they respond to defeat,” Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin said. “In order for us to be a great team — what we want to do and what we want to accomplish — we got to recover from this the right way, respond to it the right way.” Russell Wilson had his worst

game as a professional quarterback against Arizona. He completed 11 of 27 passes for 108 yards. But he wasn’t looking at what went wrong following Sunday’s loss. Instead he was focused on getting better in time to face the Rams.

‘Next opportunity’ “I think the biggest thing is just moving on and focusing on the next opportunity,” Wilson said. “It’s a good opportunity with another championship week. “You don’t want too many championship opportunities to pass you by. So the thing for us is staying focused on what you can control and having a great week of practice.” TURN



Cougs try to shake off bowl loss BY JACOB THORPE MCCLATCHY NEWS SERVICE

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — As is the case with many teams, Washington State’s football coaches have a policy that they and their players can celebrate their wins and mourn their losses for 24 hours. The Cougars seemed ready to move on about 24 minutes after giving up a 15-point lead in the closing moments of the New Mexico Bowl.

Next game far off It may be a tough loss to flush, however, without the distraction of an upcoming opponent until a date with Rutgers in eight months. “It sucks; it’s going to be sitting with us all the offseason,” offensive lineman Joe Dahl said after the Cougars fell 48-45 to Colorado State. “We really wanted to win that game for the seniors and everyone in the program. We couldn’t get it done, I guess.” Before the game, the Cougars maintained their seasonlong refrain that every game

was equally important because it was the next game, denying that the bowl game had any special significance. Perhaps it was the manner in which Washington State lost, then, that caused the Cougars additional grief.

‘Really wanted this one’ “I think everybody in that locker room really wanted this one,” quarterback Connor Halliday said. “I think everyone was really excited to play and we prepared well, film studies, and it hurts that we have to look ourselves in the mirror knowing that we weren’t able to win the game as an offense, running the clock out, getting first downs and keeping our defense off the field.” The challenge, then, is for Washington State (6-7, 4-5 Pac12) to prove that Saturday’s loss was not a stumble in their ascent as a program, and that finishing the season with a winning record matters only for aesthetics.

Another ‘statement’ game from Manning with TD pass record




Boyle: Teams more confident CONTINUED FROM B1


Arizona Cardinals cornerback Jerraud Powers, top, breaks up a pass intended for Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin. Cardinals do something no NFL team has done since the end of the 2011 season. “We knew what we were getting ourselves into,” said defensive tackle Darnell Dockett. “We were going on the road against a team that hasn’t lost at home in two years. We looked at the Saints game and how they dominated the Saints, we saw how they beat San Fran.” The Cardinals saw those results, they remembered the 58-0 beat-down

they received in the same building a year ago, and yet they found a way to prevail in exactly the ugly, low-scoring game that other playoff teams might look to replicate here. “It was a slugfest today,” Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said, “and they won out.” And look, if the Seahawks can clinch homefield with a win next week, they’ll still be the prohibitive favorite to win the NFC, and with good reason.

They’re the deepest, most balanced team in the conference, and they’d need only two wins at home after a bye to book their ticket to New Jersey. It’s a good bet that the Seahawks will win next week, then take care of business in the playoffs. Sunday’s loss, however, reminded us that it’s no sure thing.

Broncos’ Miller out for season

Hawks: Finale


was gonna tell them — we have to win that game no matter what anyway, so here we go. “We’ve got to go get this last one and see if we can secure our division. It’s another championship ballgame.” The Seahawks have treated every week this season like a championship week. This week it really is.


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos began the season without strongside linebacker Von Miller, and they’ll end it without him, too. Miller is done for the year after tests Monday revealed a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, which he injured in the first quarter of Denver’s 37-13 win at Houston over the weekend. “It’s definitely going to be a blow,” executive vice

president John Elway said on his weekly podcast on the team’s website. “But I think that we’ve done a good job of handling adversity throughout the year. This is another bump in the road for us.” The Broncos (12-3) have hit so many potholes this season it’s a wonder they’re not broken down on the side of the Super Bowl Expressway. Instead, they can wrap up the AFC’s top seed with a win at Oakland (4-11) on Sunday.

he’s optimistic Smith will be ready for the playoffs. The Panthers (11-4) wrapped up a playoff spot Sunday with a 17-13 win over New Orleans. They can clinch the NFC South division title and a first-round bye in the playoffs by beating the Falcons.

In Friday’s loss to the host Lakers, Walker scored 14 points, making 4 of 9 3-pointers, and had four assists, three steals and three blocks.

ECU wears down Ohio in Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl Auburn’s Gus Malzahn named AP coach of year BY FRED GOODALL


ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Vintavious Cooper took over the Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl in the fourth quarter in a performance reminiscent of a former East Carolina running back. Just don’t bring up that comparison to Cooper. The senior rushed for a career-best 198 yards and scored two touchdowns, leading the Pirates to a 37-20 victory over Ohio on Monday. Cooper broke the Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl record for yards rushing while becoming the first East Carolina player to win a MVP award in a bowl game since Tennessee Titans star Chris Johnson ran for 223 yards against Boise State in the 2007 Hawaii Bowl. “It’s a great accomplishment and I have to really give it up to the guys up front and all the work they did. When I found out I was close to 100 yards after the first quarter I told them and they got excited about it,” Cooper said. “I would never compare myself to Chris Johnson because I really admire CJ and I look up to CJ. He’s

done so much for me. I’m just happy my name is next to his in any way.” The Pirates (10-3) grabbed the lead for good on the first of Cooper’s two touchdowns runs in the fourth quarter, a 31-yard burst with just under 10 minutes remaining. East Carolina’s Shane Carden threw for 273 yards and one TD and also scored on a pass reception. “All season we’ve been about playing big in the fourth quarter and this was going to be a game that we needed to grind out and fight to win because Ohio is a real tough team that’s well coached,” Carden said. Cam Worthy caught an early 5-yard scoring pass from Carden, and then took a lateral and threw 14 yards back to Carden for a fourth-quarter TD that made it 31-20. Cooper put it well out of reach, finding an opening off left tackle and racing 22 yards for his second TD. Tyler Tettleton and Derrius Vick threw scoring passes for Ohio (7-6), which overcame an early twotouchdown deficit to lead 20-17 before Cooper put East Carolina back in front

a flea flicker, and then found Patterson for a 17-yard TD on the following play. Vick and Donte Foster combined for an 80-yard score on Ohio’s next offensive play for the longest scoring pass in Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl history. “They’re a very, very physical football team on the defensive side, and very strong. Generally you’re not going to traditionally line up and just run the ball right at them and feel like you’re going to be successful,” Ohio coach Frank Solich said. “We had to come up with ways that we felt we could continue to make plays and then hopefully have our fair share of big plays.” Foster finished with six catches for 160 yards, earning most valuable player honors for Ohio. Tettleton was 21 of 40 for 228 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions. East Carolina rebounded from a triple-overtime loss to Tulane in October to win five of its final six regularseason games. Ohio stumbled in November losses to Buffalo, Bowling Green and Kent State before finishing with a 51-23 rout of Massachusetts that helped the Bobcats secure the trip to St. Petersburg.

Breon Allen also scored on a 2-yard run for East Carolina, which won six of its final seven games to finish with the second-most victories in school history. Carden set the school record for single-season yards passing with a 13-yard throw to Isaiah Jones on the drive ended with Allen’s TD, making it 14-0. He completed 29 of 45 passes while boosting his season total to 4,139 yards, breaking Dominique Davis’ record total for the Pirates. Cooper ran for 90 yards in the opening quarter alone, becoming the third running back in East Carolina history to rush for 1,000 in consecutive seasons. Justin Hardy, meanwhile, had eight receptions for 59 yards, setting a school record for yards receiving in a season. He finished with nine catches, giving him 114 receptions for 1,284 yards. Ohio battled back after a slow start. Tettleton and Vick each threw a touchdown pass in a five-minute span to make it 14-all early in the second quarter.

After the game, coach Mike Leach and his players were adamant that, while it hurt to lose the game, the loss did nothing to diminish the impact of making it to Washington State’s first bowl game since 2003. “As it is we won at least four more games than everybody thought we were going to win and I think that’s good,” Leach said. “The only diminishing that exists is throughout the season there are also missed opportunities, there are ways we could have played better and we have to develop the skills and focus to do that.”

Happy Holidays from

Now begins the second full offseason under Leach, who will use the time to further familiarize the players with his philosophy and his Air Raid offense. With the team closing in on the end of its third presidential term without a winning season, Leach says that the time spent reinforcing the positive track the Cougars are on, having doubled their win total over the 2012 season, will also pay dividends. “I think we’re honestly a little better team than we — honestly, across the board — believe we are,” Leach said. “But some of that has to do with — you say, ‘confidence breeds success, success breeds confidence.’ “Some of it’s just offseasons and time on the practice field in order to develop those skills and get a visual of what you’re really capable of individually.”


AUBURN, Ala. — Gus Malzahn inherited a demoralized Auburn team that had just gone through the program’s worst season in decades with a stagnant offense and pliant defense. As is his way, the coach known for fast play on offense went to work in a hurry. He led the secondranked Tigers’ transformation into Southeastern Conference champions and has them in the national championship game Jan. 6 against No. 1 Florida State. Malzahn’s quick work made him The Associated Press national coach of the year. “It’s very humbling,” he said Monday. “Any time you get awards like this, it’s a team thing, as far as our staff and our players. It’s been fun to be a part of this year.” Malzahn received 33 votes from AP Top 25 college football poll voters to beat out Duke’s David Cutcliffe. Cutcliffe received 17 votes after leading Duke (10-3) to its first 10-win season. Florida State’s Jimbo Fisher and Michigan State’s Mark Dantonio each received three votes. Malzahn is the second Auburn coach to win the award since it began in 1998, joining Tommy Tuberville (2004), and the second coach to win it in his first season with a new team. Maryland Ralph Friedgen was AP coach of the year in 2001, his first season with the Terrapins. It’s the fifth time an SEC coach has won AP coach of

the year. Auburn icon Bo Jackson likened Malzahn’s task to starting with an empty lot upon his hiring in December 2012. “He’s got to rebuild that house,” said Jackson, the 1985 Heisman Trophy winner. The foundation was set with confidence and attitude, reinforced with a message that it was “a new day” for Auburn (12-1) after a 3-9 season in 2012 that was the Tigers’ worst since 1952. Even more jarring, they had failed to win an SEC game. It didn’t take the team long to adopt a goal of forging the greatest turnaround in college football. The result was one of the biggest ever. Only Hawaii’s 8.5-game turnaround from 1999-2000 matches Auburn’s one-year improvement. “It’s a real tribute to our players that they’ve bonded together,” Malzahn said. “They’ve done everything our coaches have asked, and I think the No. 1 thing is we developed good relationships with our players. We trust our players, the players trust our coaches and we’ve got each others’ backs.” Malzahn’s hurry-up, nohuddle offense has thrived with junior college transfer Nick Marshall at quarterback and tailback Tre Mason, a Heisman Trophy finalist, behind a sturdy offensive line. Defensive end Nosa Eguae said he knew this team was special “when we really just bought into coach Malzahn’s plan.”

CSU assistant coach suspended for using slur towards WSU’s Halliday THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

FORT COLLINS, Colo. — Colorado State defensive line coach Greg Lupfer has been suspended without pay for two weeks for using a gay slur when yelling at Washington State quarterback Connor Halliday in the New Mexico Bowl last weekend. Athletic director Jack Graham also ordered Lupfer to undergo anger management and diversity training at his own expense.

Lupfer issued a statement saying he was grateful to keep his job on Jim McElwain’s staff and said “I am deeply sorry for my behavior, which does not represent who I am or my values.” Lupfer got into a verbal altercation with the Cougars’ QB after his first TD throw. His slur was caught on ESPN cameras and marred the Rams’ comeback from a 22-point deficit for a last-second 48-45 win to kick off the bowl season.

Fun ’n’ Advice




Frank & Ernest



DEAR ABBY: I have some advice for “Lacking Why,” the girl who is wondering why the amount of allowance money Grandpa gives her and her sisters varies from one girl to the other: Stop comparing the amounts and try focusing on how attentive each of you is to your grandfather. Do you all visit him with the same frequency? Do you all write thank-you notes for his generosity? Do you all phone him the same number of times each week? Do you all remember his birthday with a nice card or small gift? Do you take turns baking him a birthday cake? I suspect, as with my grandchildren, there are wide disparities in the way these sisters treat Grandpa. Why would a person who ignores him expect the same generosity as one who showers him with love and affection? I have two grown grandkids who treat me differently and, son of a gun, I respond in kind.

Weak card security makes U.S. consumers easy mark

$ Briefly . . . Microsoft to buy land in Quincy

Real-time stock quotations at Market watch


NEW YORK — The United States is the juiciest target for hackers hunting credit card information. And experts say incidents like the recent data theft at Target’s stores will get worse before they get better. That’s in part because U.S. credit and debit cards rely on an easy-to-copy magnetic strip on the back of the card, which stores account information using the same technology as cassette tapes. “We are using 20th century cards against 21st century hackers,” said Mallory Duncan, general counsel at the National Retail Federation. “The thieves have moved on, but the cards have not.” In most countries outside the U.S., people carry cards that use digital chips to hold account information. The chip generates a unique code every time it’s used. That makes the cards more difficult for criminals to replicate. So difficult that they generally don’t bother. “The U.S. is the top victim location for card counterfeit attacks like this,” said Jason Oxman, chief executive of the Electronic Transactions Association. The breach that exposed the credit card and debit card information of as many as 40 million Target customers who swiped their cards between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15 is still under investigation. It’s unclear how the breach occurred and what data, exactly, criminals have.


A customer signs a credit card receipt at a Target store in Tallahassee, Fla. Although security experts said no security system is fail-safe, there are several measures stores, banks and credit card companies can take to protect against these attacks.

Expensive to enact Companies haven’t further enhanced security because it can be expensive. And while global credit and debit card fraud hit a record $11.27 billion last year, those costs accounted for just 5.2 cents of every $100 in transactions, according to the Nilson Report, which tracks global payments. Another problem: retailers, banks and credit card

companies each want someone else to foot most of the bill. Card companies want stores to pay to better protect their internal systems. Stores want card companies to issue more sophisticated cards. Banks want to preserve the profits they get from older processing systems. Target says there is no indication that security codes on the back of customer credit cards were stolen. That would make it hard to use stolen account information to buy from most Internet retail sites. But the security code on the back of a card is not needed for in-person purchases.

Once thieves capture card information, they check the type of account, balances and credit limits, and sell replicas on the Internet. A simple card with a low balance and limited customer information can go for $3. A no-limit “black” card can go for $1,000. Credit card companies in the U.S. have a plan to replace magnetic strips with digital chips by the fall of 2015. But retailers worry the card companies won’t go far enough. They also want each transaction to require a personal identification number, or PIN, saying a signature is a useless authentication device.

QUINCY — The Port of Quincy in central Washington state says it plans to sell 200 acres of industrial property to Microsoft for $11 million. The port said Microsoft plans to build a data center that will employee about 100 people. The Seattle Times reported that Microsoft already has a data center in the small town of Quincy, as do Yahoo, Dell, Sabey, Vantage and Intuit. The companies have been attracted by relatively low electricity costs. While the centers have boosted Quincy’s economy, some residents have worried about air pollution from diesel-powered backup generators. The newest data center is the second in Quincy for Microsoft, which built its first one there on port property in 2007. The port said the deal is expected to close in late January.

PORT ANGELES — Tyrone, a dachshund-Shih Tzu mix dog from Port Angeles, is pictured running weave poles on the cover of the December issue of Clean Run, a nationally distributed magazine dedicated to the sport of dog agility. Owner Fran Sisson said Tyrone loves competing in agility and nose work; has earned his AX, AXJ, NF and Nose Work 1 certifications; and is working on his master agility championship.
