Copter survivor’s charges dropped Coast Guard rules in 2010 LaPush crash BY BECKY BOHRER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
LONNIE ARCHIBALD/FOR PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
A Coast Guard boat heads up the Quillayute River toward LaPush Marina with wreckage from the helicopter that crashed near James Island on July 7, 2010. Military charges including negligent homicide were dropped against the sole surviving crew member Tuesday.
JUNEAU, Alaska — The Coast Guard on Tuesday dismissed negligent homicide and other charges against the sole survivor of a 2010 helicopter crash off LaPush. The decision in the case of Lt. Lance Leone was in line with the recommendations of an investigating officer, who oversaw a three-day military hearing in December. Leone was the co-pilot of the MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter flying
The helicopter hit a 1,900-foot span of wires that were the responsibility of the Coast Guard. Leone, upon hearing the news at work, “started cheering and was extremely happy for this long-awaited day,” his attorney, John Smith, told The Associated Press. Leone also said he needed to tell his wife, who is expecting the couple’s third child. Leone was charged with negligent homicide, dereliction of duty and destruction of government property stemming from the crash into the Quillayute River that killed pilot Sean Krueger of Connecticut and crewmen Brett Lt. Lance Leone Banks of Wyoming and Adam C. “Long-awaited day” Hoke of Montana. The negligent homicide from Astoria, Ore., to the crew’s charges were related to Banks base in Sitka, Alaska, when it crashed near LaPush in July and Hoke. 2010. TURN TO COPTER/A4
Bridge on Sequim Bay envisioned Span to replace estuary dike that blocks fish passage BY JEFF CHEW PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
An artist’s rendering, right, over an aerial photo, left, of Washington Harbor on Sequim Bay shows a 600-foot bridge that will cross part of the harbor’s estuary. Currently, a dike road splits the estuary, as shown at left.
SEQUIM — A $1.86 million government grant-funded project to replace a berm with a bridge will restore fish passage into the northern 37 acres of Washington Harbor estuary marsh and tide flats on West Sequim Bay. The project is planned to begin in June and be completed in October, said Randy Johnson, Jamestown S’Klallam tribe restoration planner. The access road to be replaced by the bridge runs across property owned by Mark Burrowes, a Seattle-area developer and descendant of Sequim pioneers. The harbor is a 118-acre barrier estuary formed by Gibson and South sand spits. Sequim’s Bell Creek flows into Washington Harbor from the west. The project involves construction of a 600-foot-long, low-lying bridge span, replacing the dike-road access. The road leads to the city’s outflow pipe, which releases treated water leading from its sewage treatment and water reclamation plant off Schmuck Road and into the Strait of Juan de Fuca. TURN
Whooping cough cases rise in Jefferson County BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND — The number of whooping cough cases on the North Olympic Peninsula has nearly doubled in the past two weeks, the region’s public health officer reported Tuesday. Jefferson County had 18 known whooping cough — or pertussis — cases as of Tuesday, while Clallam County had five, said Dr. Tom Locke, public health
officer for Clallam and Jefferson counties. On Feb. 23, Jefferson County had 10 confirmed whooping cough cases and Clallam County had four. Of the 23 pertussis cases on the Peninsula so far this calendar year, 21 have afflicted children ages 6 months to 14 years. The other two cases affected adults. “It’s certainly a lot in comparison to previous years,” Locke said. Pertussis is a highly contagious bacterial disease that can
be fatal in very rare cases. It leads to violent coughing that causes a distinctive whooping sound as sufferers gasp for breath. Locke said the relatively high number of pertussis cases this year is consistent with other rural counties in Washington state. The state Department of Health reported 175 confirmed cases through Feb. 18, compared with 59 for the same period in 2011.
“There’s a natural cycle of pertussis outbreaks that we know of, and we’re at the crest of one of those waves,” Locke said. But the driving force behind the outbreak is a decline in immunizations, health officials say. Parents who believe the whooping cough vaccine is unsafe or unnecessary create a recipe for outbreaks, Locke has said. Just 22 percent of those who have come down with whooping cough in Jefferson County this

Locke added that the same things that prevent the spread of influenza — covering your cough and staying home from work or school when you’re sick — can stem the spread of pertussis, which does not have the same seasonal variation as the flu.

Passings By The Associated Press
Yes DONALD PAYNE, 77, a U.S. representative and Democrat known for his work on human rights and on behalf of the poor, died Tuesday. Rep. Payne, the first black congressional member from New Jersey, died at St. Barnabas Hospi- Rep. Payne tal in Livin 2007 ingston, N.J., said his brother, William. The 12-term member of the House had announced in February that he was undergoing treatment for colon cancer and would continue to represent his district. He was flown back home to New Jersey on Friday from Georgetown University Hospital as his health took a sudden turn for the worse. He was first elected in 1988 after twice losing to former Rep. Peter Rodino, who retired after 40 years in Congress. Rep. Payne, often considered the most progressive Democrats in the state’s delegation, was elected to a 12th term in 2010. He represented the 10th District, which includes the city of Newark and parts of Essex, Hudson and Union counties. In Washington, he was remembered for his work as a defender of human rights,
both at home and abroad. Rep. Payne was a member of House committees on education and foreign affairs. He also had served as chairman of the House subcommittee on Africa, and had traveled many times to the continent on foreign affairs matters.
_________ ROBERT B. SHERMAN, 86, whose Walt Disney songwriting work can be summed up in one word, “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,” has died. The tongue-twisting term, sung by magical nanny Mary Poppins, is like much of Mr. Sherman’s work — both complex and instantly memorable, for child and adult alike. Once heard, it was never forgotten. Mr. Sherman, who died in London on Monday, was half of a sibling partnership
that put songs into the mouths of nannies and Cockney chimney sweeps, jungle animals and Parisian Mr. Sherman in 1965 felines. Robert Sherman and his brother Richard composed scores for films including “The Jungle Book,” “The Aristocats,” “Mary Poppins” and “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.” They also wrote the most-played tune on Earth, “It’s a Small World (After All).” Son Jeffrey Sherman paid tribute to his father on Facebook, saying he “wanted to bring happiness to the world and, unquestionably, he succeeded.”

One was a road proposed from the Dosewallips River in East Jefferson County to the Quinault River across the mountains to the west. The other proposal was a coastal road from the Ozette area to the LaPush area, possibly rerouting U.S. Highway 101.

A3 Briefly: Nation Cyber hacker working for FBI brings 5 arrests NEW YORK — A group of expert hackers who attacked governments and corporations around the globe has been busted after its ringleader — one of the world’s most-wanted computer vandals — turned against his comrades and began working as an informant for the FBI months ago, authorities announced Tuesday. Five people were charged in court papers unsealed in federal court in New York, and authorities revealed that a sixth person, Hector Xavier Monsegur of New York, has pleaded guilty. Authorities said Monsegur, who formed the elite hacking organization last May known as “LulzSec,” aided the FBI. The court papers said he participated in attacks over the past few years on Visa, MasterCard and PayPal; government computers in Tunisia, Algeria, Yemeni and Zimbabwe; Fox Broadcasting Co. and the Tribune Co.; PBS; and the U.S. Senate. LulzSec is affiliated with notorious hacking ring Anonymous.
Fla. principal killed JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A man who was fired from a private school Tuesday returned to campus with a gun hidden in a guitar case and shot the headmistress to death before committing suicide, authorities said. No students were injured. Officers responded to the Episcopal School of Jacksonville at 1:23 p.m. Tuesday after
receiving reports of a person with a gun, and the school was placed on lockdown. When officers arrived, Dale Regan, head of the school, and the gunman were found dead, Undersheriff Dwain Senterfitt said. The gunman has not been identified. Regan was recognized for her work in opening two new classrooms at the school that utilize new technology and are designed to foster innovation in teaching.
Powerball winner CRANSTON, R.I. — An 81-year-old woman from Newport came forward as the winner of last month’s $336.4 million Powerball jackpot, sleeping with the winning ticket in her Bible until claiming the sixthlargest U.S. prize on Tuesday, a family representative said. At a news conference at state lottery headquarters, Louise White said little, calling herself “very happy” and “very proud.” White Her attorneys said she was a regular lottery player who bought the winning ticket at a Stop & Shop supermarket in Newport, where she had stopped for rainbow sherbet. The ticket is being claimed in the name of the Rainbow Sherbet Trust. The winning ticket was among three tickets with random numbers purchased on a $9 wager, officials said. The Associated Press
Briefly: World Yemen reeling from the army’s al-Qaida defeat SANAA, Yemen — The slaying of nearly 200 Yemeni soldiers by al-Qaida militants in a brazen weekend attack posed the first major test to the country’s newly elected president, who vowed to crush the terror network. For the second day, tens of thousands protested in several cities across Yemen to demand that Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi prosecute commanders suspected of collaboration with al-Qaida in the Sunday attack, which saw headless bodies of soldiers dumped in the desert. Protesters and military officials blame the defeat on commanders installed by ex-leader Ali Abdullah Saleh. Accounts of the disaster said al-Qaida militants sneaked to the back lines of Yemeni forces at dawn, when many of the troops were asleep in their tents, and sprayed them with bullets. On Tuesday, military officials said the death toll among troops has risen to 185.
New Libyan state BENGHAZI, Libya — Tribal leaders and militia commanders Tuesday declared oil-rich eastern Libya to be a semiautonomous state, a unilateral move opponents fear will be the first step toward outright dividing of
the country six months after Moammar Gadhafi’s fall. The thousands of representatives of major tribal leaders said they want their region to remain part of a united Libya but insisted the move was needed to stop decades of discrimination against the east. The conference said the eastern state, known as Barqa, would have its own parliament, police force, courts and capital — Benghazi, the country’s second largest city. Libya’s National Transitional Council, the interim central government based in Tripoli, has repeatedly voiced its opposition to an autonomous east, warning it could eventually lead to the breakup of the North African nation of 6 million.
Cuban minister out HAVANA — Cuban state media said Tuesday that the government has replaced charismatic Culture Minister Abel Prieto, a well-known writer, professor and intellectual who has been in the role since 1997. Prieto was named an adviser to President Raul Castro, an indication that he remains in favor, and Deputy Minister Rafael Bernal was promoted to replace him. The announcement published by the Communist Party daily Granma noted Prieto’s “experience and the positive results obtained in the exercise of his office.” The Associated Press

Four hopefuls vie for 10 states’ delegates Romney wins 3 states; Gingrich takes Georgia THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney rolled to primary victories in Virginia, Vermont and home-state Massachusetts on Super Tuesday, reaching for a decisive advantage over his persistent rivals in the most turbulent race for the Republican presidential nomination in a generation. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich countered with a home-field win in Georgia as the GOP contenders battled for the chance to take on Democratic President Barack Obama in November. Romney also dueled Rick Santorum in Ohio, their second industrial-
state showdown in as many weeks. Win or lose there, Romney said, “I think we’ll pick up a lot of delegates, and this is a process of gathering enough delegates to become the nominee and I think we’re on track to have that happen.”
3 are caucuses In all, more than 400 delegates were at stake on the night, with primaries in Tennessee and Oklahoma as well as Virginia, Vermont, Ohio, Massachusetts and Georgia. Caucuses in North Dakota, Idaho and Alaska rounded out the calendar..
Super Tuesday facts ■ Delegates up for grabs: 419. ■ Delegates already won: 353 (Mitt Romney, 203; Rick Santorum, 92; Newt Gingrich, 33; Ron Paul, 25. ■ Delegates needed for the nomination: 1,144. ■ Race to watch: Ohio. No Republican nominee has ever become president without winning Ohio in the general election. ■ Biggest haul: Georgia. It boasts the day’s biggest haul of delegates, 76. ■ Caucus states: Alaska, Idaho and North Dakota. Together, the three caucuses pay out 84 delegates (Idaho 32, North Dakota 28, Alaska 24). ■ State with only two Republicans on the ballot: Virginia. Gingrich would have loved to compete in this Southern state, but only Romney and Paul landed spots on the ballot, by having early organizations strong enough to collect the required 10,000 signatures. That leaves Virginia mostly a curiosity. The fight is over 46 delegates.
Crisis averted? Iran agrees to let nuke inspectors visit BY ALI AKBAR DAREINI THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
TEHRAN, Iran — Efforts to find a diplomatic solution to Iran’s disputed nuclear program appeared got a boost Tuesday when world powers agreed to a new round of talks with Tehran, and Iran gave permission for inspectors to visit a site suspected of secret atomic work. The two developments appeared to counter somewhat the crisis atmosphere over Iran’s nuclear program, the focus of talks in Washington between President Barack Obama and Israel’s visiting Prime Minister. Benjamin Netanyahu. Obama said he saw a “window of opportunity” to use diplomacy
instead of military force to resolve the dispute over Iran’s nuclear program. Obama reiterated that his policy is not one of containment, but of stopping Tehran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council and Germany had agreed to a new round of Ashton nuclear talks with Iran more than a year after suspending them in frustration. Previous talks didn’t achieve what the powers want: ending
uranium enrichment in Iran. Ashton said the EU hopes Iran “will now enter into a sustained process of constructive dialogue which will deliver real progress in resolving the international community’s long-standing concerns on its nuclear program.”
Hopes set on diplomacy The time and venue of the new talks have not been set. In Washington, National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor said Iran must comply with U.N. Security Council resolutions and stop uranium enrichment. “We still believe diplomacy coupled with strong pressure can achieve the long-term solution we seek,” he said in a statement.

Bridge: Project called ‘biggest and the baddest’ impeding fish passage with a far smaller bridge span on West Sequim Bay Road. Two other Sequim Bay restoration projects have been completed at Jimmycomelately Creek. Johnson said coastal cutthroat, bull trout and pink salmon also will benefit from the restoration project.
CONTINUED FROM A1 The project’s goal is to restore unimpeded fish access — accomplished by the removal of two 6-foot culverts that now limit fish passage into the estuary. The bridge will restore a natural tidal channel bed at the road crossing; allow for natural tidal hydrology and the movement of sediment, wood and nutrients; and allow for a natural wave flow into the area, Johnson said. Located in the Strait of Juan de Fuca near Sequim and adjacent to the entrance of Sequim Bay, the estuary lies 5 miles from Sequim Bay’s Jimmycomelately Creek at Blyn, 7.5 miles from the Dungeness River and 16 miles from Salmon and Snow creeks in Discovery Bay, all sites of past fish restoration projects.

He presented the project’s plans to the Sequim City Council on Feb. 27, and the council recessed into closed executive session. After the closed session, the council reconvened in open session to authorize City Manager Steve Burkett to execute all agreements, permits and easements needed to proceed with the construction and operation of the Washington Harbor bridge and outfall line reconstruction project. Among the agreements are that the city would share maintenance costs. The contribution from the city has not been decided. The action passed 6-1 with Councilman Erik Erichsen opposed, saying he believes parties outside the city are making their problem the city’s problem. By approving, he said, the council was obligating the taxpayers, and he was against it.

One of the prosecutors, Cmdr. Matthew Fay, said there was no requirement the lines be marked because they were below 200 feet. The crash’s lead investigator called the lines a contributing factor but said there was no reason for the aircraft to be flying so low. Smith said in December that Leone programmed the helicopter on a track that would have missed the wires, but Krueger deviated from that, dropping in altitude as he flew over a Coast Guard vessel in the channel. Seconds later, the aircraft struck the wires. The lawyer called it a “costly human error,” caused by “the trap” set by the Coast Guard. In January, the investi-
gating officer who presided over the three-day military hearing, Capt. Andrew Norris, recommended the charges be dismissed. He said he didn’t conclude that Leone was faultless but said the charges focus on alleged navigational failures by Leone and tie those to the destruction of a helicopter and death of two crew members. “It is in this focus, and in making this tie, that I believe the charged offenses fail,” he wrote. Norris also investigated whether Leone was derelict in his duty for not advising Krueger that they were flying too low at certain points in the flight and recommending a rise in altitude.

Rear Adm. Thomas Ostebo was not bound by Norris’ recommendations. Smith said the Coast Guard must close its original investigation into the crash, which could result in administrative actions. He said Leone, whose duties since being charged have included working as a safety officer, is in line for a promotion in the coming months, and his defense team is working to get him flight retraining and a new assignment.

Microbreweries touted as tourist draw Owners speak at PA meeting Curry
BY ROB OLLIKAINEN
PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” Thereâ€™s a burgeoning microbrew industry in Clallam County that has the potential to become a tourist attraction, local brewers told Port Angeles business leaders this week. Ed Smith of Peaks Pub Brewing, Tom Curry of Barhop Brewing and Tom Martin of Fathom & League Hop Yard Brewery in Carlsborg told Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce members Monday that the local beer scene could spark economic development on the North Olympic Peninsula. â€œBreweries are destinations,â€? Smith told a crowd of about 80 at the chamberâ€™s weekly luncheon at the Port Angeles Red Lion Hotel. â€œThey will bring a lot of people to us.â€? Smith, who purchased the pub at 130 S. Lincoln St. in 1999, said his customer base is about 80 percent local residents and 20 percent tourists this
time of year. That ratio basically flipflops in the summer months, Smith said. â€œWe feel that we need the chamber, the [Port Angeles] Downtown Association, everybody to get behind breweries instead of just wineries,â€? Smith said. â€œA lot of people come here just to drink beer, believe it or not, and with a little bit of help in advertising, weâ€™ll get a whole lot more.â€? Smith added: â€œWeâ€™re going to put Port Angeles back on the map.â€? Curry, who opened Barhop Brewing in a 2,000-square-foot building behind Harbingerâ€™s Winery just west of Port Angeles in May 2010 and the Barhop Taproom at 110 N. Laurel St. in downtown Port Angeles last July, makes smallbatch, single-barrel, handcrafted ales. â€œThere is a huge microbrew movement and craft beer movement, and it does

Martin is the founder and CBO â€” chief of brewing operations â€” of one of the Pacific Northwestâ€™s newest commercial breweries.
Carlsborg brewery He opened Fathom & League Hop Yard Brewery in 2009 after fine-tuning his craft as a hobbyist for several years. Martin grows different kinds of hops for his onebarrel operation at his Carlsborg residence. The Clallam County Public Utility District water engineer strives to make â€œworld-class beer with locally grown ingredientsâ€? and pair them with local foods. He said there is a good opportunity to merge the local brewing industry with organic farms that produce quality hops and grains. â€œWeâ€™re inching closer to an all-local brew,â€? Martin said.

Curry said. Harbinger winemaker Sara Gagnon allowed Curry to work under her license after Harbingerâ€™s brewer left in May 2010. Curry had his own licence by November 2010.

In 1999, Peaks Pub had â€œlabor of love.â€? â€œFirst and foremost, beer Budweiser, Coors and other plain-tasting national variis fun,â€? he said. â€œItâ€™s a passion to make eties on tap.
â€œWe decided to do something crazy and do all micros,â€? Smith said. Then, Smith invested in a two-barrel brewery about seven years ago and started making his own beer. It expanded its brewing operation within the past year. Peaks Pub has won awards in Canadian beer festivals over the past five years. Martin brews his beer on a smaller scale â€” about one barrel, or 31 gallons, per month. â€œI rely on the ambient temperature of the season for the type of beers that I brew,â€? he said. â€œFermentation is very dependent on temperature.â€? Pilsner is a commonly brewed winter variety. In the summer, Martin usually is working on an ale of some kind. One of his favorite fall brews is Discovery Imperial Stout, named after a ship that explored the Pacific Northwest coast, including Discovery Bay, in the late 1700s.

Smith said. â€œThey know the difference between an IPA and a pale ale. And itâ€™s just wonderful to educate people, and yet they turn around and educate more people.â€? Curry, who is married to Olympic Medical Center Assistant Administrator Rhonda Curry, is the administrator for Family Medicine Port Angeles after having had a 31-year nursinghome career. Last fall, his Catcher Rye Ale advanced to the final round of a contest at the Great American Beer Festival. â€œThis is by far the most fun Iâ€™ve had since I was 12 years old, throwing newspapers in San Francisco,â€?

U.S. tribal casino revenue up after a slump in 2009 $26.7 billion was reported in 2010 BY STEPHEN SINGER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
HARTFORD, Conn. â€” Gambling revenue at casinos run by Native American tribes edged up slightly in 2010, reversing a first-ever drop in revenue the previous year and showing renewed strength as the economy improves, according to an annual report released Tuesday. The study, â€œCasino Cityâ€™s Indian Gaming Industry Report,â€? said revenue at Native American casinos was $26.7 billion in 2010, up from $26.4 billion in 2009. In contrast, revenue at commercial casinos declined 0.1 percent, and the businesses are expected to soon be overtaken by tribal casinos. Tribesâ€™ casinos made up less than 20 percent of casino gambling in 1993but now account for nearly 44 percent, just slightly less than commercial casinosâ€™ share of 45 percent, the study said. Racinos, which combine race tracks with casinos, account for 11 percent of market share.

Finalist advocates entrepreneurial approach BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — Luke P. Robins, the first of four finalists for president of Peninsula College to visit the North Olympic Peninsula this week, said ongoing cuts to higher education budgets often demand responding with an entrepreneurial approach. A changing economic reality has stripped college funding to the point that colleges soon will no longer be “state-supported” but simply “state-sanctioned,” Robins said at a Port Angeles public forum Monday. “I don’t think that is going to change,” said the finalist, who described himself as “in his 50s” and who also addressed public forums in Forks on Monday and in Port Townsend on Tuesday.
Not unique problem He said the problem is not unique to Peninsula College or to Louisiana Delta Community College in Monroe, La., where Robins has served as chancellor since 2006.
“Strategic goals should drive your budget,” he said. “Your budget should not drive your strategic goals.” A goal might take longer to achieve during bad economic times, but it still should be in place, he said. Trustees chose Robins and three other finalists — all of whom hold doctorates — from a field of 23 applicants Feb. 21. The other finalists are: ■ Cheri A. Jimeno, president of New Mexico State University at Alamogordo. ■ John R. (Ron) Langrell III, executive vice president of Riverland Community College in Austin, Minn. ■ Dorothy J. Duran, vice president for academic affairs at Iowa Western Community College in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Trustees plan to choose a president from the finalists Tuesday. The open public session will begin at 2 p.m., following a closed executive session at noon, at the Cornaby Center (A-12) on the Peninsula College main campus at 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd. in Port Angeles. The new president will replace Tom Keegan, who
Robins said he applied for the job at Louisiana Delta, which has 2,700 enrolled students, because of the challenge and unique experience of directing a new college, which opened its main campus in 2001.

both — a fully accredited two-year college and a $45 million campus, he said. Peninsula College has a different kind of appeal, Robins said. “There are great things happening at Peninsula College,” he said. In Port Angeles on Monday, Robins noted that Peninsula College was able to replace nearly all of the school’s old buildings over the past decade, during a challenging economic era, and expand the school’s educational offerings. Robins and his wife, Mary Jane, have two children in college. “I’ve lived in the West before, and I love the Northwest,” Robins said. Robins is an avid fisherman who hopes to spend some time on Peninsula rivers. Robins has served as executive vice president and chief academic officer at National Park Community College in Hot Springs, Ark., and dean of instruction at Eastern Idaho Technical College in Idaho Falls, Idaho. The three other candidates for the position are
scheduled to meet with trustees and the community this week. ■ Jimeno appeared at community forums in Forks and Port Angeles on Tuesday and will meet with faculty, staff and community members in Port Townsend today. ■ Langrell will appear at community forums in Forks and Port Angeles today and in Port Townsend on Thursday. ■ Duran will appear in Forks and Port Angeles on Thursday and in Port Townsend on Friday. All candidate public forums in Port Angeles begin at 5:30 p.m. in Keegan Hall on the main campus at 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd. The Forks gatherings are at 11 a.m. at the Forks Extension site at 71 S. Forks Ave. The Port Townsend forums are at 1 p.m. at the chapel at Fort Worden State Park.

Death and Memorial Notice ued with the missionary spirit the rest of their lives. Mary and her husband spent many fine years in Santa Clara, California, before moving to Sequim in 1994. Mary will be remembered by all who knew her as a caring and lovable person, dedicated to her God Jehovah. Mary is survived by a couple of her siblings and nieces and nephews.
MARY AND CHARLES RENYE Mary Renye April 9, 1922 February 13, 2012 Mary Renye passed away on February 13, 2012, in Sequim after a brief battle with cancer. Mary was born on April 9, 1922, in Wharton, New Jersey, the daughter of immigrant parents who arrived in the U.S. in 1908 from Poland. Mary was one of about eight children born to Peter and Jadwiga Dobrowlski. She grew up in New Jersey but also spent time with family in Amasa, Michigan. Mary had a keen sense of humor and seemed to always have a smile on her face. She deeply cared about others, which is why she chose a career as a minister. After high school, Mary spent many hours in her ministry trying to help others learn about the true God. She was invited to
Charles Renye Mr. and Mrs. Renye the Watchtower Bible College of Gilead in South Lansing, New York, and graduated from the second class on January 31, 1944. Her missionary assignment was to the country of Panama. Based out of Panama City, Mary came to love the people in her missionary assignment, studying the Bible with numerous people. She loved nothing more than sharing the Bible’s mes-
sage of hope with others. Friendships she made in Panama lasted to her death. Mary met a young man who had similar interests and pursuits, and they corresponded by letter from their respective missionary assignments. They were married on August 16, 1948. Although their missionary service in foreign lands ended, they both contin-
October 11, 1920 February 19, 2012 Charles Francis Renye passed away February 19, 2012, in Sequim. The son of Austrian immigrants who arrived in the U.S. in 1912, “Chuck” was born on October 11, 1920, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to Charles and Jenevieve Renye. Chuck graduated from Palmyra High School, Palmyra, New Jersey, in 1939. His graduating class
had great insight into Charles’ character, as all who came to know him would agree. They described Charles this way in his high school yearbook: “Quiet and selfeffacing,” “His quiet appearance discloses his merry nature to but a few. Charles is a lover of the great outdoors and would much rather be out in it than in school. “He has a fine sense of humor, which has made him a welcome addition to any group.” Time never changed those traits of Chuck. Charles graduated from the Third Class of the Watchtower Bible College of Gilead in South Lansing, New York, on July 31, 1944. After graduation, he served as what was then referred to as a servant to the brethren, then he accepted a missionary assignment in Switzerland. Having met a beautiful young lady (Mary) while in the New York/New Jersey area, they wrote each other while Chuck was on his mission.

Sue and Bill moved to Sequim to retire, and before long, they had made many new friends and were volunteering for many organizations. As her kids said, it was harder to get a hold of their parents after they retired than before because they were always busy with something or traveling somewhere.

After marriage, Charles worked in the plumbing service industry in California and was known and loved by many in the Santa Clara area. As his yearbook stated, Chuck loved the outdoors and fishing. Chuck was an active member of Jehova’s Witnesses, and his life revolved around his love for his God Jehovah and his wife. Chuck and his beloved wife, Mary, moved to Sequim in 1994, and she preceded him in death by just a few days. They will be greatly missed by all who knew them. A joint memorial service for Charles and Mary will be held on Saturday, March 10, 2012, at 1 p.m. at the Sequim Kingdom Hall of Jehova’s Witness off River Road, 20 Narrow Way.

Special session likely in budget talks BY RACHEL LA CORTE THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
OLYMPIA — Gov. Chris Gregoire said Tuesday that if lawmakers don’t make significant progress toward a budget deal by the end of the day, it will be “very difficult” to avoid a special legislative session. However, Gregoire said she wouldn’t give up on the goal of having a budget passed by midnight Thursday, when the regular 60-day legislative session is scheduled to end. “I’m not going to give up,”
she said. “We’re going to keep working.” Gregoire said it’s possible lawmakers could have a budget deal before Thursday but might have to come back for a one-day session to pass the plan. Doubt over lawmakers’ ability to get a budget passed increased after Senate Republicans took control of the Senate floor Friday night and passed their own budget plan early Saturday. That budget, as passed, has no chance of passing the House, where Democrats hold a 56-42 majority.
Democrats hold a 27-22 majority in the Senate, but Republicans were able to seize control and pass their own plan with the help of three conservative Democrats.
Work toward pact On Monday, Senate Minority Leader Mike Hewitt, R-Walla Walla, sent House Speaker Frank Chopp, D-Seattle, a letter saying he would like to work “toward agreement on a sustainable budget that supports the core priorities of
state government.” Senate Democrats’ budget writer, Sen. Ed Murray of Seattle, said Tuesday that ideas are moving between the House and Senate and governor. “Ideas are not being rejected outright,” he said. “The possibility for movement is there. “We just need people to have a chance to look at some of these things before the day is out and see if we can reach an agreement.” The Republicans’ plan makes deeper cuts to state programs than either House
Whooping cough cases nearly double BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — The number of whooping cough cases on the North Olympic Peninsula has nearly doubled in the past two weeks, the region’s public health officer reported Tuesday. Clallam County had five known whooping cough — or pertussis — cases as of Tuesday, said Dr. Tom Locke, public health officer for Clallam and Jefferson counties. On Feb. 23, Clallam County had four confirmed whooping cough cases. Of the 23 pertussis cases on the Peninsula so far this calendar year, 21 have afflicted children ages 6 months to 14 years. The other two cases affected adults. Pertussis is a highly contagious bacterial disease that can be fatal in very rare cases. It leads to violent coughing that causes a distinctive whooping sound as sufferers gasp for breath. Locke said the relatively
PA slide show set Monday
high number of pertussis cases this year is consistent with other rural counties in Washington state. The state Department of Health reported 175 confirmed cases through Feb. 18, compared with 59 for the same period in 2011. “There’s a natural cycle of pertussis outbreaks that we know of, and we’re at the crest of one of those waves,” Locke said.
PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — Gunvor Hildal and her husband, Randy Washburne, will share and narrate slides from their trip to L’Anse aux Meadows in Newfoundland at an event Monday. Sponsored by the Sons of Norway, the presentation will be held at the Sons of Norway Lodge, 131 W. Fifth St., at 7 p.m.
Driving force But the driving force behind the outbreak is a decline in immunizations, health officials said. Parents who believe the whooping cough vaccine is unsafe or unnecessary create a recipe for outbreaks, Locke has said. Meanwhile, flu season has not started on the Peninsula, and it’s getting more and more likely that the region will be spared from a seasonal outbreak, Locke said.
or Senate Democrats’ original plans do, especially in health and human services programs. It also proposes $74 million in cuts to schools and colleges. In a statement issued Tuesday, Republican Attorney General Rob McKenna, who is running for governor, called for a bipartisan budget compromise, saying the “state can’t afford to have the Legislature go into yet another special session instead of fulfilling its most basic duty of completing a budget on time.”
Gunvor Hildal, above, and her husband, Randy Washburne, not pictured, will discuss their trip to L’Anse aux Meadows in Newfoundland, Canada, at a Sons of Norway event Monday.
The Viking settlement, discovered in 1960 and excavated seven times since, provides evidence that Norsemen and -women inhabited North America around the year 1000. Refreshments will follow the program. The event is free and open to the public.
McKenna, who is facing Democrat Jay Inslee in the race to succeed Gregoire, said any budget compromise should ensure that public education be the first priority for funding. On Monday, Inslee criticized the Republican budget’s proposed cuts to education, saying the plan would take “us backward at a time we must focus on the future and restoring our commitment to our children’s education.” Lawmakers are looking to close a budget gap of about $1 billion.

DEAR ABBY though I still miss my husband terriVan Buren bly, I have been lonely, and I’m ready to start dating again. I was frankly unprepared for the barrage of absolute hate that was sent my way by my husband’s parents and siblings. They have cut off all contact with me and thus my children, which has left me stunned and sent my kids reeling from even more loss in their lives. Is there something wrong or disrespectful with my wanting companionship and to be happy again? My in-laws seem to expect me to be in mourning forever, which is cruel and incredibly inconsiderate. Please help me find peace with all of this because it’s tearing me up inside. In Turmoil in Detroit
Dear Music Lover: Loud noises can damage a person’s hearing, and there is legitimate concern that the sound levels at which people listen to music cause hearing problems. However, I suspect your grandmother is less concerned with the damage your iPod will do “on four or five notches” than she is about the fact that you don’t give her your full attention when you’re spending time together. I’m surprised your parents haven’t mentioned to you that showing good manners means being polite, respectful and not ignoring your grandmother when she’s trying to talk to you or play a game with you.
by Bob and Tom Thaves
Dear In Turmoil: Your former in-laws may have been less upset had you waited a full year before letting “everyone” know that you’re ready to start dating and going on with your life. Not knowing them, I can’t be sure what has caused them to shun you and their grandchildren, who are their last link to their lost son and brother. You may find peace through acceptance of the fact that as one chapter in life has closed, another is opening up and you will have a full life ahead of you. That is not wrong. As much as you may have loved your husband, now that he is gone, you have every right to continue living a full and happy life with companionship and love. My deepest sympathy to you for the loss of your husband.
by Jim Davis
Dear Abby: My husband died unexpectedly eight months ago, leaving me with two young children to raise on my own. My parents are deceased. It has been a long, hard road since then. I have tried to make sure my in-laws continue having contact with my children, encouraging visits to my home and dropping the kids off at their homes when they have asked. I recently let everyone know that, by Mell Lazarus
Rose is Rose
DEAR ABBY: I’m a 12-year-old girl who loves music and electronics. I sit on the swing and listen to music on my iPod through my earbuds. I do it at least a half-hour every day — sometimes more. When my grandma visited a few weeks ago, she tried to talk to me when I was giving my iPod my undivided attention. When I finally realized she was talking to me, I took my earbuds out so I could hear her. She told me the earbuds were going to make me deaf. (I listen on four or five notches.) One night, we were playing a card game where you have to play really fast and watch a gazillion piles of cards at once. The game made me dizzy, and I said so at the end of the round. Grandma said it was because of my iPod. It was all I could do to say politely, “No, it’s not.” Is there a way to tell her to stop blaming my iPod for everything? I consider my iPod a friend.

Edward’s tasks unfitting for a vampire HOPEFULLY, THIS IS the last of a series of stories designed to enhance and preserve the North Olympic Peninsula’s most precious cultural heritage — the Twilight craze. While it should be noted Pat that as of press Neal time, neither Stephenie Meyer nor her agents have contacted me about collaborating with her on the next Twilight novel, they have not said no. In last week’s episode, Edward, Bella and the demon spawn were shacked up in a love nest in the suburbs of Forks. Once the wedded bliss wore off, Edward decided he had to get
out of the house more. He tried to get a job, to be normal for the sake of the kid, but Edward just couldn’t hack it as a logger or a fishing guide. It’s tough to hold down a job when you’re a vampire who sleeps all day, so it was just lucky he got a position with the government as a biologist. It was a detail-oriented, fastpaced work environment, and Edward was a multitasking, selfstarting, out-of-the-box team player. At his first day on the job, the Boss Biologist (The Double B) had Edward placing voodoo pins into a picture of a newspaper columnist, and in no time at all he was closing down fish hatcheries like a pro. Being the new guy, Edward was forced to go outside once in awhile. One day he had to electro-
shock bull trout. At lunchtime, Edward was sitting on a log. He saw a Sasquatch.

Peninsula Voices State budget Washington state Republican senators, along with three brave Democrats, have passed a workable and reasonably balanced budget, and our local representatives are outraged. Rep. Kevin Van De Wege is frustrated and disappointed in the abuse of power [PDN, March 5]. Rep. Steve Tharinger was “disappointed” and criticized the lack of transparency. Sen. Jim Hargrove just voted no. This bipartisan budget, by all accounts, makes sense and does not start the next biennium $1 billion in the red. The Democrats’ egos are bruised and they are unreasonably upset because the majority that got the job done was not their majority. It is time for the Democrats to set their egos aside and show some leadership. It will also soon be time for the citizens of the 24th Legislative District to consider whether the smallminded and petulant attitude of our two representatives and our senator are in the best interest of the citizens of the district.

Next election I believe it’s a bad idea to vote Republican in the next election; downright dangerous, in fact. Looking back at recent Republican administrations should be a lesson for us all in how not to govern the country. I found it astounding that Bush/Cheney could be re-elected in 2004 after their first term in office proved catastrophic; one in which two illegal wars were launched, a good deal of our regulatory system was diminished and rendered ineffective, and the financial health of the country came perilously close to ruination. Do we really want to risk putting in office again those who don’t understand consequences of these unwise policies? Think back to the speeches you’ve heard in this campaign season. What have any of the candidates said in the way of a positive message in how to remedy any of the

Rush Limbaugh’s insulting, sexist and vicious comments regarding Sandra Fluke have been heard around the world. There is no justification for such personal, hurtful, degrading and senseless comments. Because a woman — any woman — chooses to use contraceptives does not make her “a slut” nor “a prostitute.” Where does he get such an idea? Then, to leap from this name-calling to suggesting that offering insurance that pays for prescription contraceptives means that “we are going . . . to pay for you to have sex” is beyond unreasonable.

slaughter werewolves like rats at the dump, with joy quivering his heartstrings. But the idea of harming an innocent creature was abhorrent to the very fiber of his being. Besides, it was one of the reasons he and Bella got together in the first place — Edward was one of the few guys in Forks who didn’t hunt. “How can I shoot a defenseless owl that’s just sitting on a limb?” Edward asked. “It’s easy,” The Double B laughed. “You just don’t have to lead them so far.”

problems we face today? All they have to say boils down to blaming the Democrats for all of our ills. Government is not the problem, as we are told. This is promoted by those who stand to benefit from all controls and oversight being lifted. Democrats don’t seem to have the shortcomings of the other party of unquestioning loyalty to an unworthy leader or cause, and hence do not usually fall into these traps. As good citizens we must all be vigilant — “eternal vigilance is the price of liberty” — and not to just accept what we hear over the airwaves every day, which is often misleading information.

owls were invading our borders, crowding our American owls out of nest sites and eating the spotted owl’s white lab mice. There had even been stories about the Canadian owl attempting to breed with the American spotted owls. “Is this the kind of country you want for your children,” The Double B asked Edward, “an America where you can no longer hear the hoot of an owl at night? “Instead we are forced to listen to a Canadian owl calling ‘eh, eh, eh.’ “Think of our children’s children’s future and of their children as well.

PT council supports corporate speech ban BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND â€” The Port Townsend City Council has voted unanimously to support an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would strike down the idea that corporations have the same rights as individual citizens. â€œCorporations are not people and do not have the same rights,â€? said Jackie Aase during the comment period at Mondayâ€™s council meeting. â€œYour actions Aase here will help the nation to get behind a well-written and effective constitutional
amendment,â€? she said. Steve Hamm said 1,200 signatures were gathered on a petition. He hopes another 800 will be added before it is presented to the three Jefferson County commissioners sometime in April. â€œThis is a grass-roots effort that is active in thousands of communities across the country,â€? he said. â€œWe need to push this through here so Olympia gets the message.â€? The resolution, directed to state legislators, urges them to support a proposed constitutional amendment â€œto abolish Corporate Personhood and return our democracy, our elections and our communities back to Americaâ€™s human persons and thus reclaim
our sovereign rights to self-governance.â€? The movement and the proposed amendment is in reaction to the 2010 Citizens United decision by the U.S. Supreme Court.
Fifteen people attended the meeting to support the resolution, with four addressing the council.
overturn the U.S. Supreme Courtâ€™s Citizens United ruling. â€œWe are at a point where we can no longer ignore this,â€? said Councilman Mark Welch, who crafted one of two versions of the resolution. â€œThis is out of balance, and we need to bring it back into balance. The purpose of corporations is not to control the political system,â€? he added. During discussion, Deputy Mayor Kris Nelson said she did not want the resolution to have a blanket anti-corporation slant and suggested an addendum: â€œWhereas, we do not object to the concept of the ability of corporations to engage in legal actions (e.g. enter into contracts, sue, be sued, etc.).â€?
Divided Supreme Court The divided court ruled 5-4 that the government may not ban political spending by corporations in candidate elections. In his dissent, Justice John Paul Stevens said the majority committed a grave error in treating corporate speech the same as that of human beings, The New York Times said. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., introduced a constitutional amendment proposal in the U.S. Senate in December that would
Encourages participation After the resolution was passed, Councilman Bob Gray encouraged more participation from residents in council decisions. â€œI thank you for coming out here tonight, but we have meetings every Monday,â€? he said. â€œThe political process happens all the time.â€?

PORT ANGELES â€” Aswirl with blue waves, buoyant birds, fish and maidens, these paintings invite you in â€” into a world created by dâ€™Elaine Johnson in an otherwise plain hallway. Johnson, a painter who has mounted art exhibitions in Paris, New York, Washington, D.C., Seattle and even the United Arab Emirates, is displaying 31 of her tableaux inside the PUB Gallery of Art at Peninsula College â€” through this Friday only.
Public reception Right after the talk, the public also is invited to a reception in the gallery with Johnson. The painter, who holds a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Washington, was an art teacher in Seattle for 24 years. About 40 of her paintings are now on permanent display at that cityâ€™s Odyssey Maritime Museum.
