SEQUIM — The breakup of Dungeness Valley lavender-growing groups into two associations grew more divisive this week, as lawyers for the Sequim Lavender Growers Association and the newly formed Sequim Lavender Farmers Association clashed over delivery of the growers association’s accounting and vendor documents. The growers association’s attorney, Jacques Dulin, said he and another Sequim attorney, Larry Freedman, who represents the farmers association, have agreed to meet at 4:30 p.m. today, when Dulin expects the documents to be handed Nagel over to the growers group. Dulin, who is best known as an intellectual property and patent attorney, said the two attorneys will meet at the Port Angeles office of Scott Nagel, who last week announced he had jumped ship from the growers association to become the director of the farmers association.

25,000 attend annual festival Nagel, as an employee of the growers association, had directed the Sequim Lavender Festival since 2004, an event that draws about 25,000 people each year from all over the world and pumps about $3 million into the Sequim area’s economy.

Jackson’s doc pleads not guilty in L.A. Michael Jackson’s doctor pleaded not guilty Tuesday to a charge of involuntary manslaughter in the pop superstar’s death as the case moved rapidly toward a trial that will likely be televised. “Your honor, I am an innocent man,” Dr. Conrad Murray told Los Angeles Superior Murray Court Judge Michael Pastor in a soft voice. “I definitely plead not guilty.” Lawyers for Murray, who is accused of giving Jackson a lethal dose of the powerful anesthetic propofol and other sedatives, said they would be ready to go to trial within the 60-day statutory

time limit, which would make for an unusually speedy trial. Deputy District Attorney David Walgren said the prosecution would be ready to go as well for the trial he estimated would last six weeks. The judge scheduled the trial to begin March 28and a pretrial hearing for Feb. 7. Asked why the defense wants to begin the trial so quickly, defense attorney Ed Chernoff said, “Dr. Murray has been waiting 22 months for his opportunity to do this. It’s the first chance we have to force the issue.”

‘Jersey’ in Italy “Jersey Shore” is headed to the Motherland. The popular MTV reality TV series starring a group of hard-partying Italian-Americans will film its fourth season in Italy, the network said Tuesday. “While the stateside ‘Jersey Shore’ locales have become iconic for our audience, it’s really the constantly evolving dynamic

amongst the cast that keeps them coming back each season,” MTV programPolizzi ming vice president Chris Linn said. “Europe is a fresh spin on a show that continues to reach new heights for us.” The ongoing third season, filmed last summer, features the ongoing feud between Jenni “J-Woww” Farley and Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola, as well as the introduction of new cast member Deena Nicole Cortese, the wild “partner in crime” of Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi. The cast also includes Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino. The fourth season is set to premiere later this year. The first and third season are set in Seaside Heights, N.J., and the second season sent the fistpumping pals to Miami.

Mr. Tafel, who was instrumental in helping save two historic interiors from a house designed by Mr. Tafel his celein 2011 brated mentor in Minnesota, died Jan. 18 at his home in lower Manhattan, said Robert Silman, a longtime friend and New York structural engineer. He was the last surviving member of the original Taliesin fellows, a community of young apprentice architects established in 1932 at Wright’s home and school in Spring Green, Wis., Silman said. He had a hand in two of Wright’s most enduring structures: Fallingwater on Bear Run creek in southwest Pennsylvania and the Johnson Wax Building in Racine, Wis. In his own practice,

which Mr. Tafel opened in New York after World War II, he was perhaps best known for designing the Church House for the First Presbyterian Church, a 19th-century landmark in Greenwich Village. Decades later, Mr. Tafel was instrumental in helping save two Prairie-style interiors from Wright’s Francis W. Little House in Wayzata, Minn., before it was demolished in 1971. His other projects included three college campuses, 35 religious buildings, six townhouses and 80 homes.

The Neah Bay post office, in the Washburn store, was burglarized Saturday night, according to a report received by Clallam County Sheriff Charles Kemp. A window in the building was broken and the burglar gained entrance through the opening. The person breaking the window received a cut because considerable blood was found on the floor. The only articles missing are some marbles and knives.

A four-apartment, twostory building at 1131 W. Ninth St. in Port Angeles was the scene of a fire at 1:21 a.m. that destroyed 35 percent of the structure. People in the two apartments that were occupied, including three young children, were taken to safety. Fire Chief Kenneth Cameron said the fire began in the living room of an apartment on the ground floor, probably from a short circuit in a vacuum cleaner cord under the living room rug.

Dutch Schaefer doesn’t like unsolicited mail, and he’s placed a ceramic toilet under his roadside mailbox with the label “junk mail.” “You know, a guy just gets so much of that junk mail,” said the Milwaukee Drive resident in west Port Angeles. “At least now they’ve got an idea of how I feel about it.” Schaefer said he doesn’t care to find soap samples or other advertising gimmicks in his mailbox, preferring them to be delivered in his alternative mail receptacle.

Briefly: Nation Blackwater suit tossed 7 years after deaths RALEIGH, N.C. — A lawsuit that blamed the security company formerly known as Blackwater for the deaths of four contractors killed in a grisly 2004 ambush in Iraq was tossed by U.S. District Judge James C. Fox. The judge said court-ordered arbitration fell apart because neither side was paying the costs of that process, so he decided to shut the case nearly seven years after the killings. Insurgents killed the contractors, mutilated the bodies, dragged the charred remains through the streets and hung two of the corpses from a bridge. The event triggered a massive U.S. military siege known as the Battle of Fallujah. Survivors of the contractors contend Blackwater failed to prepare the men for their mission and didn’t provide them with appropriate equipment. A congressional investigation concurred. Blackwater argued that the men were betrayed by the Iraqi Civil Defense Corps and targeted in a well-planned ambush.

Life in prison for plot NEW YORK — A judge sentenced the first Guantanamo detainee to have a U.S. civilian trial to life in prison Tuesday, saying anything he suffered at the hands of the CIA and others “pales in comparison to the suffering and the horror” caused by the bombing of two U.S. embassies in Africa in 1998. U.S. District Judge Lewis A.

Kaplan sentenced Ahmed Ghailani to life, calling the attacks “horrific” and saying the deaths and damage they caused far outweigh “any and all considerations that have been advanced on behalf of the defendant.”

Emanuel appeal OK’d CHICAGO — Illinois’ highest court agreed Tuesday to take Rahm Emanuel’s appeal of a decision that threw him off the ballot for Chicago mayor and ordered election officials not to print any mayoral ballots without Emanuel’s name. State Supreme Court justices agreed to expedite the case, but they gave no specific time frame. Emanuel has asked the court to overturn a lower ruling that pulled his name off the ballot because he had not lived in the city for a year. The Chicago Board of Elections had said it would begin printing ballots without his name as early as Tuesday, with the election less than a month away.

But Edmunds said a fall trial was best for now because “we need to move this case along.” The Associated Press

President Barack Obama delivers his State of the Union address at the Capitol on Tuesday.

Plea for unity, focus on economy by Obama By Ben Feller

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Pleading for unity in a newly divided government, President Barack Obama implored Democratic and Republican lawmakers to rally behind his vision of economic revival for an anxious nation, declaring in his State of the Union address Tuesday night: “We will move forward together or not at all.” The president unveiled an agenda of carefully balanced political goals: a burst of spending on education, research, technology and transportation to make the nation more competitive, alongside pledges, in the strongest terms of his presidency, to cut the deficit and smack down spending deemed wasteful to America. Yet he never explained how he’d pull that off or what specifically would be cut.

Giffords’ shooting

Protesters stop traffic in the middle of a bridge over the Nile River during clashes in downtown Cairo early today.

Anti-Mubarak Egyptians clash with riot police CAIRO — Tens of thousands of anti-government protesters inspired by Tunisia’s uprising staged the biggest demonstrations in Egypt in years, facing down riot police who beat them with batons and fired water cannons in clashes that left at least three dead Tuesday. The protests to demand an end to President Hosni Mubarak’s 30-year authoritarian rule and a solution to Egypt’s poverty could embolden the opposition and fuel growing dissent in a presidential election year. Mobilized largely on the Internet, the waves of protesters filled Cairo’s central Tahrir Square, some hurling rocks and climbing atop police trucks. As night fell, thousands of demonstrators stood their ground and settled in for an allnight sit-in in the square just steps away from parliament —

blocking the streets and setting the stage for even more dramatic confrontations.

Putin vows revenge MOSCOW — Prime Minister Vladimir Putin vowed revenge Tuesday for the suicide bombing that killed 35 people at a Moscow airport — a familiar toughon-terrorism stance that has underpinned his power but also led to a rising number of deadly attacks in Russia. Lax security also was blamed for Monday’s explosion in the international arrivals area of Domodedovo Airport that also injured 180 people, with President Dmitry Medvedev criticizing police and managers at the airport, the largest of three that serve the capital. No one has claimed responsibility for the attack, but suspicion has fallen on Islamist separatists from Chechnya or elsewhere in the restive Caucasus region who have been battling Russian authority for more than 15 years.

Rep. Norm Dicks, D-Belfair, front row center, sits in front of the empty seat of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona. The lawmakers are wearing black-and-white ribbons in honor of Giffords and the other Arizona shooting victims.

Obama spoke to a television audience in the millions and a Congress sobered by the assassination attempt against one if its own members, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. Her seat sat empty, and many lawmakers of competing parties sat together in a show of support and civility. Yet differences were still evident, as when Democrats stood to applaud his comments on health care and tax cuts while Republicans next to them sat mute. In his best chance of the year to connect with the country, Obama devoted most of his hour-

long prime-time address to the economy, the issue that dominates concern in a nation still reeling from a monster recession — and the one that will shape his own political fortunes in the 2012 election. Eager to show some budget toughness, Obama pledged to veto any bill with earmarks, the term used for lawmakers’ pet projects. House Speaker John Boehner and other Republicans applauded. But Obama’s promise drew a rebuke from his own party even before he spoke, as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said the president had enough power and that plans to ban earmarks were “a lot of pretty talk.” Obama’s proposals Tuesday night ranged across the scope of government: cutting the corporate tax, providing wireless services for almost the whole nation, consolidating government agencies and freezing most discretionary federal spending for the next five years. In the overarching theme of his speech, the president told the lawmakers: “The future is ours to win.” In essence, Obama reset his agenda as he heads toward a reelection bid with less clout and limited time before the campaign consumes more attention. Yet Republicans have dismissed his “investment” proposals as merely new spending. Republican Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, giving the GOP’s response, said the nation was at “a tipping point” leading to a dire future if federal deficits aren’t trimmed.

The Senate’s Republican leader, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, said the president had gotten the message from the November midterm elections and “changed the tone and the rhetoric from the first two years.” Obama entered the House chamber to prolonged applause and to the unusual sight of Republicans and Democrats seated next to one another rather than on different sides of the center aisle. And he began with a political grace note, taking a moment to congratulate Boehner, the new Republican speaker of the House.

Big challenges Calling for a new day of cooperation, Obama said: “What comes of this moment will be determined not by whether we can sit together tonight but whether we can work together tomorrow.” The president cast the challenges facing the United States as bigger than either party. He said the nation was facing a new “Sputnik” moment, and he urged efforts to create a wave of innovation to create jobs and a vibrant economic future, just as the nation vigorously responded to the Soviets beating the U.S. into space a half-century ago. In a speech with little focus on national security, Obama appeared to close the door on keeping any significant U.S. military presence in Iraq beyond the end of the year. The president reiterated his call for a comprehensive immigration bill, although there appears to be little appetite for it in Congress.

House GOP OKs budget caps The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Moving to keep a campaign promise to slash the federal budget, Republicans controlling the House on Tuesday went on record to return most domestic agencies to 2008 budget levels in place before President Barack Obama took office. The 256-165 vote came on a symbolic measure but is an opening salvo in an upcoming battle over the budget that will pit the House GOP against Obama and the Democratic-controlled Senate. The immediate issue is how to wrap up the long-overdue budget for the 2011 budget year that

Quick Read

began in October. A battle over the 2012 battle will follow on a parallel track starting with Obama’s budget submission next month. The vote comes on a nonbinding resolution that promises cuts approaching 20 percent of the budgets for agencies like the Education and Commerce departments when Congress wraps up the budget for the current fiscal year. The actual GOP cuts would be made in a follow-up spending bill slated to advance next month and are sure to encounter strong resistance from the Democratic-controlled Senate and from Obama. Republicans say Tuesday’s

measure is the first step in keeping a campaign promise to cut $100 billion from Obama’s budget for the current year. The actual savings would be less — about $84 billion — since Obama’s budget increases were never passed. The cuts would shake most Cabinet agencies — the Pentagon and the Veterans Affairs and Homeland Security departments largely would be spared — and may be unpopular with the public, which registers strong support for the idea of spending cuts in general but often balks when seeing specifics like cuts to school aid, Amtrak subsidies, road funding and public broadcasting.

World: WikiLeaks seeks more media partnerships

A car salesman in suburban Chicago has been fired for refusing to remove a Green Bay Packers tie that he wore to work the day after the Packers beat the Chicago Bears to advance to the Super Bowl. John Stone said he wore the tie to work Monday at Webb Chevrolet in Oak Lawn, Ill., to honor his late grandmother, who was a big Green Bay fan. Boss Jerry Roberts said the dealership has done promotions involving the Bears and he was afraid the tie could alienate the team’s fans and make it harder to sell cars. He said Stone had five chances to take off the tie but refused.

A grand piano recently showed up on a sandbar in Miami’s Biscayne Bay, about 200 yards from condominiums on the shore. The piano was placed at the highest spot along the sandbar so it doesn’t get underwater during high tide. Officials aren’t sure how it got there, but they know it won’t be going anywhere unless it becomes a hazard. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is not responsible for moving such items and, unless it becomes a navigational hazard, the Coast Guard won’t get involved. For now, the piano has become a fancy roost for seagulls.

Thousands of curious onlookers are flocking to central Indonesia to look at a “crop circle” in a rice field following rumors it was formed by a UFO. Though clearly sculptured by humans — it looks like an intricately designed flower — the 70-yard-wide circle has drawn so much attention that police have blocked off the area with yellow tape. Villagers have started charging entrance fees. Guntur Purwanto, chief of Jogotirto village in Sleman district, said the circle appeared in the middle of the green rice paddies over the weekend.

WikiLeaks hopes to enlist as many as 60 news organizations from around the world in a bid to help speed the publication of its massive trove of secret U.S. diplomatic memos, the site’s founder said Tuesday. Julian Assange told The Associated Press that he was making an effort to reach beyond the major newspapers — such as The New York Times and The Guardian — that worked with him on earlier releases, saying that he already has about 20 media partners and could triple that number within the next three months. “We’re striving for maximum impact for the material,” Assange said.

Port Angeles pool ‘has a lot of life in it’ Facility worth investing in, consultant says By Tom Callis

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — It may not be in the springtime of its life, but the William Shore Memorial Pool can last decades more with a bit of investment, the facility’s caretakers were told Tuesday. “The pool has a lot of life in it,” consultant Don Carey told the William Shore Memorial Pool District commissioners. The district hired Carey of Auburn for $3,900 to audit the structural integrity of the 49-year-old facility. His 15-page report concluded that the pool, at risk of closing two years ago, is structurally sound but that a handful of improvements do need to be made. “Is it worth investing? I’m telling you, yes, it is,” Carey told the commissioners. The report cites one “deficiency” — corrosion in

the utility tunnel underneath the pool. The other major items noted by the consultant include resurfacing the pool and replacing or upgrading the air conditioning system, pipes and overflow gutter. The report estimates it would cost $787,303 before taxes to make those improvements, among a few other more minor repairs, and would extend the life of the pool by between 30 and 40 years. With nothing done, the pool would have between five and 10 more years of life left, Carey said after speaking with the commission.

The right thing Pool commission Chairwoman Cherie Kidd said the possibility of keeping the pool around for another four decades shows that it was worth saving. “We did the right thing by forming a pool district,”

she said after the meeting. “And we’re going to bring it up to higher standards.” Pool Executive Director Steve Burke said the report, along with an “energy efficiency audit” and soon-tobe-issued user survey, will be used to determine what improvements will be made at the pool. A study looking at what can be done to improve the use of energy at the pool will be done next month, he said. Asked how much the district could be looking to invest, Burke said it’s comparable to the $1.5 million to $2 million in potential improvements cited in a city of Port Angeles pool study from 1999. He said he hopes to have a capital improvement plan done by the end of the year. “We will be spending just the resources we have been given,” Burke said, adding that an increase in the district’s property tax levy won’t be considered.

space to the benefit of the farmers and the merchants.” Freedman accused Dulin of “just stirring things up,” saying that “aggravating this thing is not going to help.” Dulin said the growers group must also reclaim equipment used in the lavender festival, which is in storage. An audit of the growers group’s documents and property was likely, he said.

Question low profits The growers association board president, Terry Stolz, and Dulin question why the association made only about $2,300 from last year’s Sequim Lavender Festival, saying the event had a budget of about $288,000. “We refuse to have SLGA held for ransom in payment for Mr. Nagel, who claims we owe money, which we are not sure he’s due,” Dulin said.

Stolz said it was unclear what Nagel was owed, but he did say Nagel was paid through December. Nagel was paid about $6,000 a month for his and his staff’s services, Stolz said. Nagel declined to say if he believes he is still owed money. Nagel said last week that one reason he left the growers association for the new farmers association was because his contract had not been renewed since September.

Unauthorized notice Stolz and Dulin said association members were upset that Nagel posted an unauthorized notice on the growers association’s website, www.lavendergrowers. org, that said there would be no farm tours at the festival this year. Stolz and Dulin said Nagel also removed sponsor names from the site with-

out permission. “There’s no question that some damage has been done,” Dulin said. Stolz and Dulin also questioned whether Nagel was working for the new farmers association before leaving the growers association, something they said they would investigate.

Groups separated The farmers association will produce its own event, including tours to six pioneering lavender farms that broke away for the new Sequim Lavender Farm Festival. The farmers association has said it will announce its location for a separate crafts fair, music, food and a bus transportation center for farm tours within the next two weeks. Stolz said the growers association would no longer provide bus tours, “just more of self-guided tours” of farms remaining with that group. Nagel’s Port Angelesbased company, Olympic Peninsula Celebrations, also produces the Dungeness Crab and Seafood Festival in Port Angeles.

The farmers association separated from the growers association Jan. 8, and Nagel joined the group Thursday. While the growers association lost six key farms from the Sequim Lavender Festival’s farm tour, at least 18 to 20 members remain with the growers association.

tive Specialist Tina Hendrickson has temporarily taken over Shimko’s duties “pretty much full time.” Sequim lawyer and former Clallam County Prosecuting Attorney Chris Shea, whom Kelly defeated in November 2002 to win her first term in office, is the special prosecutor for the city of Port Angeles in the case, City Attorney Bill Bloor said. The city has an agreement with the city of Sequim under which the two municipalities take each other’s conflict-of-interest cases, Bloor said. Assistant City Attorney Heidi Greenwood, who would have handled the case, is Shimko’s personal friend, Greenwood said.

SEATTLE — A King County sheriff’s spokesman said officers are investigating an apparent double suicide of a man and woman in their late 70s. Sgt. John Urquhart said a man called at about 6 p.m. Tuesday saying, “Send the cops. There is a double suicide.” The spokesman said officers believe the man then killed himself before they arrived at the house. The man’s wife was found dead in the house as well. Urquhart said at this point, officers don’t believe this was a homicide-suicide. No additional information was immediately available. The Associated Press

Voters return ballots in 2 school districts Peninsula Daily News

More than 14 percent of the voters in the Port Angeles School District have returned ballots for the Feb. 8 special election, while Quillayute Valley School district voters have returned more than 7 percent. Both districts have placed replacement maintenance and operations property tax levies on the ballot. Of the 18,868 registered voters in the Port Angeles School District, 2,727 had returned ballots as of Tues-

day for a return of 14.45 percent. Of the 3,015 registered voters in the Quillayute Valley School District, a total of 220 have returned ballots, for a return percentage of 7.30 percent. Ballots must be handdelivered or mailed by 8 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 8, to be counted. Hand-delivered ballots can be taken to the Auditor’s Office at the Clallam County Courthouse at 223 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles, or placed in

drop boxes. Drop boxes for this election are located at the courthouse and in the Forks District Court lobby, 502 E. Division St., Forks.

Property tax levies Both districts are asking for a small increase over the property tax levies now in place, which will expire at the end of 2011. If approved, the levies would appear on 2012 property tax bills. In Port Angeles, voters

will decide whether or not to approve a four-year levy that would collect about $8.2 million in the first year and successively a little more each year. Although the amount of the levy would go up a little each year, the estimated rate of $2.65 per $1,000 assessed valuation is expected to stay the same. That means the owner of a $200,000 home in Port Angeles would pay $530 a year in property taxes to the school district — about $44

more than the current levy. The two-year Quillayute Valley schools levy would bring in $626,348 each year with an estimated rate of $1.41 per $1,000 assessed valuation. That means the owner of a $200,000 home would pay about $282 per year in property taxes. Quillayute Valley School District also has 142 voters in Jefferson County, said Donna Eldridge, county auditor. Of those, 17 — or

11.97 percent — had returned ballots as of Tuesday. Of the 21,700 ballots issued in Jefferson County’s sales tax hike election — which is countywide — 4,333 had been returned as of Tuesday — a total of 19.97 percent. Residents can register to vote in person through Monday and receive a ballot for this election. Registered Clallam County voters who have not received ballots should phone 360-417-2221.

Allen Foundation grants help small press, library By Charlie Bermant Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — A small poetry press will develop a new publishing technology, while a public library will sponsor a readership program to give young people insight into the causes of teen suicide, thanks to grants from the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation. The foundation announced Tuesday the awarding of a $100,000 grant to Copper Canyon Press of Port Townsend and a $50,000 grant to Port Townsend Library. The press will use the grant to facilitate the development of a process to configure poetry for the increasingly popular electronic book format. The Port Townsend Library plans to funnel the money into a readership program based on Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher, a novel published in 2007 that tells the story of a young girl who commits suicide and its effect on her schoolmates. The grants emphasize the long relationship the 20-year-old foundation has developed with Port Townsend, during which time it has provided $825,000 in grant money to local organizations. “We administer these grants to organizations who are having trouble in the current economy,” said Jim McDonald, the foundation’s senior programs officer. “We give them the tools to assume a leadership role.” Copper Canyon has published poetry for 40 years and has carved a profitable niche in the fickle literary market. Poetry has been underrepresented in the burgeoning electronic book market because the e-readers flow text in a single direction and

cannot accommodate poetry’s style and punctuation anomalies, said executive editor Michael Wiegers. “We want to preserve good design, which is the hallmark of a poem, and build a system that protects its integrity,” Wiegers said. The technology has yet to be developed, so Wiegers and his staff don’t know exactly how the program will work. But the goal is to ensure that poetry teachers, students, writers and readers will have access to the award-winning titles of the press in both traditional print and electronic forms in ways that uphold the integrity of the artists’ intent. There are certain guidelines, such as finding a way to maintain line breaks, type style changes and punctuation variations for the different electronic book formats. It will not be a proprietary system, and Wiegers hopes the process will be made available to any publisher who wishes to bring poetry to the electronic masses. The $100,000 grant will be allocated over a threeyear period, during which time some of Copper Canyon’s books will be offered electronically. Wiegers said the new process will bring poetry to a wider audience and make it more accessible to all fans of literature. “This will bring poetry to people who don’t know that it exists,” he said. Thirteen Reasons Why has a potent message, but it is also a good story, which has made it popular with teenage audiences, said Jody Glaubman, teen librarian at Port Townsend Library. The grant, which will be distributed over a two-year period, will fund the books for the community read, as

Peninsula Daily News for Wednesday, January 26, 2011




How Hollywood has looked at us Seen any good movies lately? The Razzies, an Academy Awards spoof, this week gave “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” nine nominations, including worst picture, worst actress for Kristen Stewart and two worst-actor nominations, for the vampire boyfriend Robert Pattinson and werewolf wannabe boyfriend Taylor Lautner. In addition, the entire cast Pat of “The TwiNeal light Saga: Eclipse” was nominated for worst screen couple or ensemble. As a Twihard journalist, all I can say is sticks and stones may break my bones, but those words just ripped out my still-beating heart and tossed it beneath the gilded jackboot of a self-appointed cultural elite that wouldn’t know real entertainment if it snagged them with a treble hook. Stephenie Meyer’s vampire books have sold more than 100 million copies. The “Twilight” movie series has made hundreds of millions of dollars and transformed Forks into a “Twilight” tourist trap selling everything from tours to T-shirts. So who cares what the critics think? “Twilight” is the latest of a slew of movies that have been based or filmed on the Olympic Peninsula. Critics have badmouthed them all.

There was “The Hunted” with Tommy Lee Jones, shot at the Lake Aldwell dam on the Elwha River in 2003. A critic said: “The quality of ‘The Hunted’ may have been beaten down by the physical drubbing their cast and crew endured while filming in wet wilderness.” The final scenes of “Wyatt Earp,” with Kevin Costner, were shot at Freshwater Bay in 1994. “Wyatt Earp” was nominated for several Razzys, including worst picture, remake, director, actor and screen couple(s). “An Officer and a Gentleman,” with Richard Gere and Debra Winger, was filmed in Port Townsend in 1982. A critic called it “a movie about blue-collar, downtrodden people.” Critics said the 1967 Disney classic, “Charlie, the Lonesome Cougar,” filmed at Olympic Game Farm in the Dungeness Valley, had a “cast of flat human performances.” They said Herb Crisler used tame elk in his 1949 film, “The Olympic Elk.” None of these criticisms measures up to the uproar that battered the greatest movie to ever call the Olympic Peninsula home. Based on a milion-seller memoir by Betty MacDonald about a pair of newlyweds taking over an abandoned chicken farm in the wilds of Chimacum, “The Egg and I” was released in 1947 and starred Fred MacMurray and Claudette Colbert. Marjorie Main got an Oscar nomination for best supporting actress for her portrayal of Ma Kettle. “The Egg and I” spawned eight more “Ma and Pa Kettle”

movies and a TV series. Critics maintained that Betty’s writing was racist and sexist. Unfortunately, these stereotypes were social norms at the end of World War II. Betty’s poignant observations could be extremely judgmental and did not spare anyone, including herself, her husband, his drunken friends or Port Townsend, which she called “Docktown.” “The Egg and I” is a story of survival on the homestead. If you ever tried starting a cranky wood stove on a cold morning just to get a cup of coffee, you will appreciate “The Egg and I.” Betty wrote about her stove as though it was a character in her book, one of the few that didn’t sue her. It was Betty’s portrayal of residents of the Peninsula — or Cape Flattery as it was known in the movie — that got her into hot water. She was sued by her neighbors, who claimed they were ridiculed for being ignorant country bumpkins. Betty settled out of court and moved to California. Today, all that is left of this movie heritage is a road named Egg and I south of Chimacum. I drove down there for “The Egg and I” tour, but no one was selling any T-shirts.

Peninsula Voices Hope for salmon With outdoors columnist Matt Schubert’s endorsement against the five-year moratorium on Lake Sutherland, I am moved to speak in support of the moratorium. I’m just another fisherman, don’t work for the government, but this sweeping epic of salmon recovery has stimulated hope in me for something that can, maybe, be accomplished — the renewal of a thriving salmon population in Peninsula waters. In conjunction with the Elwha River project, many other salmon fishery efforts are taking place, to the tune of almost $2.5 million. These complex, manypronged efforts are supported by federal, state, county and tribal governments acting in unison for once, and finding funds to do it. That in itself is almost a miracle in these days of tight money and budget cuts. A list of the agencies and NGOs on board with this project is astonishing: There are the Hood Canal

Salmon Enhancement Group; Puget Sound Acquisition and Restoration Fund, Pacific Coastal Salmon Recovery Fund; North Olympic Land Trust; Pacific Coast Salmon Coalition; Wild Fish Conservancy; Sierra Club; and others, plus countless individuals who share this vision in an age of cynicism and hard times. The effort and enthusiasm that have developed in support of this dream of restoring the salmon fisheries may never happen again; this may be our only chance to make it happen. So, I say we need to give it everything we’ve got, and if that means a fishing moratorium on Lake Sutherland, a vital link in the whole grand project, then so be it. It’s only five years, in exchange for a lifetime of fabulous fishing. And, in the meantime, there are other places to fish. Tracy McCallum, Port Angeles

We are being asked to approve a 0.3 percent increase in the sales tax for Jefferson County transit. I couldn’t possibly count the number of times I have seen these buses on the routes completely empty or nearly so. I’m told these buses cost between $200,000 and $300,000. I can’t imagine what it costs to operate these buses, but it must be considerable. Given such ridiculously low load factors, I can’t fathom the waste this represents. Now, during these very hard times when we’ve all had to tighten our belts, experience or be affected by layoffs, foreclosures, etc., we are being asked for still more money to finance this wasteful operation. Transit authorities state that without the tax increase, there will be layoffs and service cutbacks. What’s wrong with cutting back on nearly empty buses? Are transit employees immune from the hardships and sacrifices the rest of us are required to make. Will this insanity never end? Vote no on the transit tax increase and send the message to our county government that the waste must stop now! Because guess what, folks, when it comes to paying the bills, the government is you and me. Dave Tarr, Port Townsend

Garage fire quickly brought under control No injuries in Anderson Lake Road incident Peninsula Daily News

CHIMACUM — A garage fire on Anderson Lake Road was quickly extinguished Tuesday afternoon. No one was hurt in the 3:26 p.m. fire in the approximately 25-foot-by-40-foot building in the 2000 block of Anderson Lake Road. Firefighters arrived two minutes later, and East Jefferson Fire-Rescue Chief Gordon Pomeroy declared the fire to be controlled 15 minutes later. The metal structure and much of its contents were saved, said fire department spokesman Bill Beezley, although the building did suffer smoke damage and fire damage to two walls and a loft.

Oh baby, what a bad shot THOSE FAMILIAR WITH the No. 8/No. 17 hole at Port Townsend Golf Club know that San Juan Avenue runs along the entire length of the left-hand side of the par-4. There’s a large Aspen or Michael birch tree (I’m a golf columnist, Carman not a botanist) on the right side of the fairway and players should aim just to its left to have a shot at a solid approach to the two-tier green. Or you can snap hook your drive directly into the passenger side windshield of an oncoming Dodge Caravan. I don’t recommend it, but I did just that one balmy spring day during a high school golf practice. Things went from bad to worse when the van stopped and a shaking, visibly distraught mom with a newborn ran over to the golf course. It turns out there was a two-week old baby lounging in a car seat just behind that windshield. Luckily for me and my opposite-offlush bank account at the time, there was no physical damage to anything involved. Mom? Upset to the extreme and probably not likely to let the little one near the links at any time. Baby? Still sleeping peacefully. Windshield? Not a ding to be seen. The ball just bounced off and into a ditch. I found the ball but I was a little shaken myself from my direct hit that turned into a near miss and I didn’t finish the last two holes. Thankfully, this is the only time I have ever hit anyone while playing a round. I’ve had many chances to use the traditional shout of “Fore” for my wayward shots, they just haven’t found any other victims. A pre-New Year’s judgement in New York State Court found that golfers are not entitled to that courtesy while out on the course when the New York State Court of Appeals ruled against a personal injury lawsuit. According to an Associated Press account, Dr. Anoop Kapoor and Dr. Azad Anand were playing on a ninehole Long Island course in October 2002 when Anand was hit in the head while looking for his ball on a fairway, blinding him in one eye. The seven judges on the state Court of Appeals, siding with lower courts, said Kapoor’s failure to yell in advance of his errant shot from the rough did not amount to intentional or reckless conduct. “The manner in which Anand was injured — being hit without warning by a ‘shanked’ shot while one searches for one’s own ball — reflects a commonly appreciated risk of golf,” the Court’s ruling said. The court cited a judge’s finding that Anand was not in the foreseeable zone of danger and, as a golfer, consented to the inherent risks of the sport. The inherent risks portion of that ruling reminds me of the warning of the danger of thrown bats and thrown or batted balls printed on baseball ticket stubs. The Virginia State Supreme Court batted down a similar claim in 2003. So I would expect if a spectator was injured from an errant tee shot or approach . . . say in Tacoma during the 2015 U.S. Open and they promptly sued, that our state courts would find no room for recovery for the injured spectator.

Half-court shot beats PA Riders fall to streaking Bremerton Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — It was a heart-breaking loss for the Port Angeles boys basketball team against one of the best teams in the Olympic League on Tuesday night. Bremerton, which is on a nine-game winning streak, beat the Roughriders 57-54 on a half-court desperation shot at the buzzer. “Our kids fought to the very end,” Port Angeles coach Wes Armstrong said. “I’m proud of the way they played through the adversity in the game.” Andre Colman, who scored a team-high 16 points for the Knights, had the winning halfcourt shot. The Riders had a chance with five seconds left but the ball went in-and-out of the basket. Colin Wheeler sank a gamehigh 19 points and he brought down nine rebounds for Port Angeles. “Colin played great for us,” Armstrong said. The Riders led 15-14 at the end of the first quarter but the Knights took a 33-27 lead in the locker room at halftime. Bremerton kept the lead Keith Thorpe/Peninsula Daily News going into the final period, Port Angeles’ Cameron Braithwaite, right, looks to pass around the defense of 43-41.

PORT TOWNSEND — The physical Kingston girls basketball team wore out Port Townsend in an Olympic League game Tuesday night. The tough Buccaneers beat the Redskins 61-44 with an explosive second half after leading by only 30-28 at halftime. “Kingston is a very, very physical team,” Port Townsend coach Randy Maag said. “They play man-to-man defense and they eventually beat us down.” The Class 1A Redskins, 6-7 in league and 8-8 overall, are in good shape for the playoffs. Kerri Evalt led the Redskins with 13 points while Bella Fox was right behind with 12. Port Townsend had problems finding the basket at times. “We didn’t have a good shooting night,” Maag said. “We missed some wide-open shots.”

Sounders have big expectations Soccer camp opens with lots of fanfare, hope By Tim Booth

The Associated Press

TUKWILA — When Sigi Schmid went around the room and asked just how many of his Seattle Sounders were still around from the first practice nearly two years ago, an impressive number of hands went into the air. Might not be the same next year, unless Seattle can finally match its goal of being the best in Major League Soccer. Pretty heady stuff for the first day of preseason camp. “This is the year that if we don’t accomplish some of the things that we feel we can accomplish, then you have to

start looking at breaking up that core,” Schmid said on Tuesday. “So this is an important year.” The Sounders began Year 3 on an overcast, drizzly morning on Tuesday, without any of the uncertainty from a year ago when the team wondered how a new collective-bargaining agreement would affect the franchise and if designated player Freddie Ljungberg truly wanted to be in Seattle.

A deep roster Ljungberg is gone, the Sounders have three designated players now — Blaise Nkufo, Fredy Montero and Alvaro Fernandez — and one of the deepest rosters in the MLS. Seattle returns 10 players who started most of last season, and that doesn’t include past starters Jhon Kennedy Hurtado

and Brad Evans, both coming back from injuries that cost them most of the 2010 season. “It’s going to be difficult,” Schmid said of putting together his final roster before the March 15 opener against Los Angeles. “We talked about that. We said ‘how much different is this than two years ago?’ But as you’re building a team that’s what it takes. “Now you’re looking for somebody who has a little something special, somebody you can add something that maybe you are missing or don’t have. And I think a couple of guys have shown that.” Seattle closed last season as the hottest team in the league, finishing the final 15 matches with a 10-2-3 record. But the Sounders’ inability to score in the playoffs was exposed again in a first-round loss to Los Angeles. Despite winning a second

straight U.S. Open Cup title, the first-round exit was a sudden thud to a successful second season. “We definitely fell short last year, there’s no hiding from that,” forward Steve Zakuani said. “We can kind of say we won the Open Cup and Champions League was a new experience and we made the playoffs again, but we fell short. “We’re a better team than that and we need to prove that this year.” Zakuani, who had the chance to train with Everton in the offseason, is one of Seattle’s key returners. The Sounders lost Sanna Nyassi and Nathan Sturgis in the expansion draft, but have added Jamaican forward O’Brian White and Swedish midfielder Erik Friberg. Turn

WHITTIER, Calif. — Former Peninsula College men’s soccer player and assistant coach Shea Harwell will head a program of his own next fall. The Gig Harbor native was named the new head coach of the Division III Whittier College Poets on Sunday. Harwell played the final two years of his college career at Whittier in 200910, helping guide the Poets to back-to-back postseason appearances as a defender. Named the interim head coach following Poets head coach Paul Walmsley’s resignation last fall, Harwell was promoted after a national coaching search. He was once a defensive standout for Peninsula College, then stayed on to help coach the Pirates to a second-place NWAACC West Division finish in 2005 as an assistant. He also served as goalie coach for Port Angeles High School from 20032006 while attending Peninsula.

Clijsters, Zvonareva in semifinals By John Pye

The Associated Press

MELBOURNE, Australia — Kim Clijsters moved into an Australian Open semifinal showdown with second-ranked Vera Zvonareva, beating Agnieszka Radwanska 6-3, 7-6 (4) today as air force planes flew in formation overhead as part of celebrations for the national holiday. Cannons went off earlier when Zvonareva started the Australia Day proceedings at Rod Laver Arena with a 6-2, 6-4 win over Petra Kvitova. Thursday’s semifinal will be a rematch of the last U.S. Open final, where Clijsters collected her third Grand Slam title. Clijsters is the only Grand Slam winner into the women’s semis, although she’s still seeking her first major title outside of America.

No. 1-ranked Caroline Wozniacki and China’s Li Na meet in the other half of the draw. “I hope the experience can help me a little bit,” Clijsters said. “But there are some tough players out there, we have Nos. 1, 2, 3 still in and Li Na has been playing really well. So it is going to be really tough. “I lost to Vera at Wimbledon last year, I beat her in finals of U.S. Open.” Zvonareva has lost the last two Grand Slam finals, to Clijsters in New York and Serena Williams at Wimbledon. Clijsters was up a set and a break before Radwanska rallied, winning three straight games to lead 5-4 with a chance to serve for the second set. With six Royal Australian Air Force “Roulettes” flying overhead, Clijsters converted her fourth break-

point chance to tie it at 5 and the set went to a tiebreaker. “I think the planes kind of took me up higher!” joked Clijsters, long a crowd favorite in Australia, where she’s still called “Aussie Kim.” She also was engaged for a time to former No. 1-ranked Lleyton Hewitt. “Happy Australia Day everybody,” she said in a salute to her supporters. Clijsters now has reached the semifinals five times in Australia. Her best run remains her trip to the final in 2004, when she lost to fellow Belgian Justine Henin. Zvonareva wore a black ribbon on her hat in honor of the 35 victims of the suicide bombing at a Moscow airport this week. Her quarterfinal also featured a couple distractions. Zvonareva and Kvitova were surprised when can-

nons went off in a nearby park. And Zvonareva asked that the match be stopped for a few minutes while a woman in her sightline was given medical attention in the stands, but chair umpire Mariana Alves told them to continue. “I didn’t know they were going to start this noise during our match, it was a difficult moment,” said Zvonareva, who led the final set 3-0 before the disruptions but saw Kvitova level it at 4-4. “You’re here to play tennis. I was trying to keep my concentration.” On Tuesday, Roger Federer was reluctant to talk about possibly playing Rafael Nadal in the Australian Open final, and with good reason. After all, he’s playing Novak Djokovic in the semifinals.

OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — Port Townsend’s Michael Dawson danced through drizzle to claim the first-ever Ridge Rally ski/snowboard race at Hurricane Ridge on Sunday. Competing in an uphill/ downhill event for the first time, Dawson won the race in challenging conditions. “We decided to go with a shorter course on Saturday due to bulletproof ice conditions,” said event organizer Greg Halberg. “On Sunday the snow softened up in light drizzle for surprisingly good skiing, but the visibility was pretty bad. “ Dawson took advantage of a quick transition from uphill to downhill mode to take the lead through the downhill portion of the race. The under 40 division winner was Greg Schayes,

from Bainbridge Island, on telemark gear. “I came with my wife and young daughter” who went sledding while Schayes competed, Schayes said. “I had a great time and really enjoyed the family friendly atmosphere at the Ridge.”

Swimmers honored PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles Swim Club honored six swimmers as its swimmers of the month for November through January. Noah Sinnes, Makenzie Johnson, Jay Liang, Nadia Cole, Justice Roon and Anne Edwards were all recognized for their achievements in the pool. Sinnes and Johnson were the November swimmers of the month. Sinnes put up his best swims at the December pentathlon and avoided disqualification for the first time, while Johnson continued to display a strong work ethic in practices. Liang and Cole were the December swimmers. Liang won the 200-yard butterfly in 1 minute, 7.73 seconds in a December meet, while Cole broke the 25 breaststroke record while winning the event for 8-and-under swimmers. January swimmers were Roon and Edwards. Both new swimmers to the club, Roon and Edwards have showed great improvement since joining. Edwards, the youngest swimmer on the team, even outswam swimmers who were older than her at her first meet, the January Challenge.

Politics and Environment

Unemployment tax cut is governor’s top priority New payment for jobless must wait, Legislature told By Curt Woodward The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — State lawmakers must move quickly to cut unemployment insurance rates for 2011 and should save until later a debate over whether to add new payments for jobless families with children, Gov. Chris Gregoire said Tuesday. The Democratic governor is pushing a reduction in unemployment taxes this year and must have a bill signed into law by Feb. 8 to make the rate change in time. Her plan is projected to save Washington state employers about $300 million in 2011 by halting a planned increase in unemployment insurance rates. It also would extend fed-

eral jobless benefits for about 69,000 people. Severe unemployment following the Great Recession is threatening to push this year’s rates up by an average of 36 percent. Businesses’ first payments are due in April.

Rubber hits the road “We talk a lot around here about jobs and the economy and the recovery,” Gregoire said. “Well, this is where the rubber actually hits the road. “This is something that actually can be done to help make that a reality.” A second part of Gregoire’s plan for unemployment changes would extend the proposed 2011 rate cuts to future years, saving another $50 million for

business in the long run. It also would beef up a worker training program to help people get new jobs. Doing so would attract a nearly $100 million payment from the federal government. A House committee combined those two bills into one package last week, with a twist: It swapped out the training program for a new payment for jobless families with children. That benefit would send $15 per week for each dependent with a weekly maximum of $50 per family.

Family benefit Adding the new family benefit would also attract the federal payout, but it’s a subject of contention. The Washington State Labor Council and other liberal groups say a new per-child benefit would extend sorely needed aid to

jobless families with children, particularly in a time of widespread cuts to other state programs. Business groups, however, are wary of adding a permanent benefit increase because they fear it will eventually lead to higher unemployment taxes. At a news conference Tuesday, Gregoire reiterated her original plan for an immediate bill to address this year’s rates and a second measure to deal with the argument over whether to add a new family benefit. Delaying the 2011 rate cut with a political spat between business and labor will just jeopardize the sorely needed tax cut, she said. “There’s a debate to be had here. Let’s leave it for another day,” Gregoire said. “We have to move right now on the temporary rate reduction. That’s absolutely critical.”

Horizon Air brand is retired

Consumer confidence highest in eight months

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Consumer confidence hit an eight-month high in January. The increase suggests the rising spirits that fueled a holiday shopping boom are carrying over into the new year as people feel better about the job market. The Conference Board said Tuesday its Consumer Confidence Index climbed to 60.6 this month from 53.3 in December. While confidence is still far from the 90 that signals a healthy consumer mindset, the January improvement was better than expected. Some economists said the big tax relief package Congress passed in late December may have helped. “So much for a ho-hum January,” said Jennifer Lee, senior economist at BMO Capital Markets. “The signing of the stimulus bill and all that it is intended to bring is buoying sentiment.” The $858 billion package extended the Bush-era tax relief at all income levels for two years, provided tax breaks for businesses and reduced Social Security payroll taxes by 2 percentage points this year.

NEW YORK — Alaska Air Group, which operates Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air, said Tuesday its fourth-quarter profit nearly tripled as traffic improved and it added routes. The company also said it will take delivery of an additional 15 Boeing 737s and will retire the Horizon name to fly all its planes under one banner. The company reported net income of $64.8 million, or $1.75 per share, in the last three months of last year, compared with $24.1 million, or 67 cents per share, a year ago. Revenue rose 13.3 percent to $958.5 million from $846.1 million a year ago.

Horizon name fades Horizon Air is Alaska’s regional airline. Alaska said its retirement of the Horizon brand follows changes to its business to align more closely with the rest of the regional airline industry. Alaska is now responsible for scheduling, marketing and pricing all flights, just like many other major carriers do for their regional airlines. As part of the brand change, Horizon’s fleet will be repainted with a new paint scheme prominently featuring “Alaska” across the fuselage and the Eskimo on the tail. Travelers will begin to see changes to airport signs, advertising and planes starting next month. Horizon expects to unveil the first plane with its new look in February as well. Alaska Air Group bought Horizon in 1986. A stylized sun on its planes’ tails has been Horizon’s logo for 20 years. Officials said that Horizon will continue to operate as a separate airline within Alaska Air Group.

Shoppers stroll through a mall in Springfield, Ill., in December. The Social Security reduction means an estimated $1,000 in additional after-tax income for the average family, according to White House estimates. Other analysts suggested that the recent gains in the stock market and improving labor market conditions were trumping higher gasoline prices and falling home prices. The Standard & Poor’s/ Case-Shiller 20-city index showed home prices falling in most of America’s largest cities and hitting their lowest point since the housing bust in nine markets. The January rise in confidence is a good sign for consumer spending, said David Wyss, chief economist

at Standard & Poor’s in New York. “A confident consumer buys a new car,” he said. “A cautious consumer repairs the old one.” The January confidence figure was the highest since last May’s 62.7. At that time, consumer attitudes were improving as economic growth seemed to be taking off. However, the economy stalled in the summer, and so did confidence. Confidence has been depressed by unemployment that surged during the country’s worst recession since the 1930s and has stayed stubbornly high even though the downturn ended in June 2009.

Kimberly-Clark Everett mills for sale The Associated Press

EVERETT — KimberlyClark Corp. said it will put up for sale its Everett pulp and tissue mills. The mills employ 842 workers. In its Tuesday quarterly earnings statement, the Dallas maker of Kleenex tissues, Huggies diapers, and other paper products said: “The company has initiated a pulp and tissue restructuring in order to exit its remaining integrated pulp manufacturing operations and improve the underlying profitability and return on invested capital of its consumer tissue and

K-C Professional businesses. “The restructuring is expected to be completed by the end of 2012 and will involve the streamlining, sale or closure of five to six manufacturing facilities around the world.” Everett Mayor Ray Stephanson said in a statement that he was glad the company is seeking a buyer for the mills.

“We fully support Kimberly-Clark’s efforts to secure a buyer that will protect jobs and minimize impacts on our community,” said Stephanson. Kimberly-Clark reported flat fourth-quarter net income Tuesday as it contends with rising costs for wood pulp and oil, major materials for its products, and competition from less expensive store brands.

 $ Briefly . . . Science scores edge past nation OLYMPIA — Washington state students are barely above the national average in science education, according to results from a national exam released Tuesday. In 2009, the average score of eighth-grade students in Washington was 155 on the national science exam, compared to the national average of 149. Washington fourthgrade students averaged 151 on the National Assessment of Educational Progress, a federal test known as the Nation’s Report Card. The national average for fourth-graders was 149. Only about 35 percent of Washington students scored above the proficient level in science, while about three-quarters were at or above the basic level. Washington Schools Chief Randy Dorn said the Washington scores on the National Assessment for Educational Progress are more evidence that the state needs to postpone science graduation requirements.

Google hiring SAN FRANCISCO — Google Inc. plans to hire more than 6,200 workers this year — boosting its combined domestic and international work force by at least 25 percent — in the biggest expansion yet by the Internet’s most profitable company. Executives said the company needs to aggressively recruit the smartest computer engineers and the most persuasive sales representatives to maintain its lead in online search and advertising. They also stressed the need to diversify into other services in computing, telecommunications and the media. The expansion was announced Tuesday, on the same day Yahoo Inc. cut 100 to 150 workers, or about 1 percent of its payroll, amid pressures from falling revenue. Google receives more than 1 million applications a year and identifies the top candidates through a rigorous screening process that analyzes SAT scores, grade-point averages and their performance on tests with such questions as: “How many different ways can you color an icosahedron with one of three colors on each face?”

Our Peninsula




‘Seriously Funny Songs’ to be Upstaged For Paula Lalish, the moment of inspiration came at a harp music festival in Monterey, Calif., in 2000. Taking the stage was a succession of young women, garbed in flowing gowns, who sang medieval songs featuring the ubiquitous unicorn. “I wanted to puke,” she said. “I thought it was time for the unicorn to have his say.” That’s why Lalish wrote “The Maiden and the Unicorn,” a satire that she will perform Sunday at a concert at the Upstage Restaurant. Organized by Otto Smith, the concert, called “Seriously Funny Songs,” features five singers-songwriters who, like Lalish, use their instruments to skewer conventional genres. “I like doing things with the harp that people don’t expect,” Lalish said. Lalish said she was inspired to play the harp after seeing her first Marx Brothers movie, “A Night at the Opera,” when she was 10 years old. In the movie, which premiered in 1935, Harpo Marx sheds his comic persona when he sits down at the harp. “He could be funny and still entrance everyone,” Lalish said.

On stage at Upstage For Ken Maaske, who lives in Sequim, it was the more recent transformation of Forks into a tourist mecca for Twilight fans that inspired him to compose “Vampire Blues.” The song, which he will perform at Sunday’s concert, is written from the perspective of a teenage musician in Forks who bats for vampire Edward’s side. Maaske, who plays the guitar, mandolin, fiddle, banjo and harmonica, also will perform “London Bridge,” which he wrote about the landmark being moved to the Mojave Desert to promote tourism. “I think America is a wild and wacky place to live,” Maaske said. “Americans continue to create a Disneyland environment in which to live. It’s fun and it’s funny.” Also appearing will be Michael Murray, a country/folk singer who lives in Port Townsend, and Flip Breskin

port townsend Neighbor and Zeke Hoskin of BellJackson ingham, who defy classification. All five performers have written original songs with a humorous twist and are acquaintances of Smith, who came up with the idea for the concert. Otto plays the concertina with partner Kristin Smith, a violinist, although they will only be on stage as backup for Lalish and to play their novelty piece, an instrumental duet on turkey basters. The concert will start with each musician performing a song, Otto said, then returning for a longer set.


Suggested donations There’s no cover, although in the spirit of the event, the suggested donation at the door is a million dollars. Other suggested donations: chickens, broccoli, old musical instruments, warm socks and chocolate. “Anything useful,” Smith said. For Murray, who plays guitar and banjo, “useful” means hearing a phrase or reading about something that strikes him as ironic. Murray, who is from eastern Montana by way of Seattle, won the Tumbleweed Song Writing Contest two years ago for “Grandpa Held a Snake.” Writing humorous songs is easier than regular ones, he said, because you’re not constrained by reality. “You start rolling off into fantasy,” he said. “It can be any oddball thing.” Murray wrote the song “Sniffin’ Gasoline” with Kevin Cavanaugh and Peggy Sullivan, with whom he used to play in a Tacoma band called The Smelter Rats because it met at the Antique Sandwich shop in Ruston near the site of the old smelter. Other compositions: “Road Rage,” “The Night Hermann Goering Met J. Edgar Hoover”

Otto Smith, right, and Kristin Smith, center, rehearse “The Maiden and the Unicorn,” a spoof that Paula Lalish, left, wrote for the harp. Otto Smith is organizing a concert at the Upstage featuring Lalish and four other musicians performing “Seriously Funny Songs.” and “Little Bitty Men.” The last refers to chess pieces — Murray, a retired software developer, is a chess player of note on the Peninsula. “I’m a better musician than chess player,” he said.

Classics across border Hoskin is known for writing such Canadian classics as “Hunting the Duck” and “The Lizard That Ate Vancouver.” A finger-style guitarist, he also plays ragtime mandolin, Celtic harp and alto clarinet. According to his partner, Breskin, Hoskin’s compositions range from children’s songs to songs with adult themes. Some of his titles: “Grandma’s a Pirate,” “I’m Not in Denial,” and “Me and Your Hot Flash.” Hoskin sees the absurd side of everything, Breskin said, and puts it all into witty songs that have been recorded by bands across Canada. The sister of Joe Breskin of Port Townsend, Flip plays the

guitar and is one of the founders of the Puget Sound Guitar Workshop. The duo’s signature numbers are “Slack Key,” in which she uses Hawaiian licks to frustrate Hoskin’s attempts to sing too fast, and “I Love Chocolate,” in which Hoskins improvises verses on the spot based on suggestions from the audience.

Won’t tell ending Humor often relies on an element of surprise, Maaske said, so he won’t give away the end of his Irish drinking song, about the morning after of a tourist who spent the night in the pub, nor the subject of a song whose title consists of numbers. Maaske, who plays with The Sound Dogs at Smuggler’s Landing in Port Angeles on Monday nights, said his music incorporates American and world music, including Caribbean blues, country-western and Celtic styles. Lalish, who lives on Marrowstone Island and has a CD out

called “Island Time,” plans to play “Geezer Love Song,” which she wrote for her husband, Greg. She also will do a lullaby titled “A Monster in the Closet.” Lalish said she remembers watching Harpo Marx on an episode of “I Love Lucy,” circa 1955, in which he plays “Take Me Out to the Ball Game,” picking out the familiar melody against a surfeit of swirling glissandos. “I seem to be in the minority of people who want to exploit the comedic qualities of the harp,” Lalish said. “Seriously Funny Songs” is at 7 p.m. Sunday at the Upstage Restaurant, 923 Washington St., Port Townsend. No cover. Donations, including chickens, will be accepted. For more information, e-mail Otto Smith at

Hothead has issues with anger control


DEAR ABBY: I have an issue that has me concerned, and I need some expertise. I have a problem with anger. I don’t know what triggers it. It happens out of the blue sometimes. I have never struck out in anger toward another person, but people have witnessed my outbursts and seemed taken aback by the behavior. The instances occur every month or two. I’m a nice guy. I would bend over backward to help someone if I could. My verbal explosions contradict who I am inside. Do you have any suggestions on what I can do to control my temper in these situations?

Amended Notice of Application to add points of withdrawal of existing water rights. Take Notice that Public Utility District No. 1 of Clallam County Port Angeles, Washington has filed an application to add points of withdrawal of existing water rights granted under Ground Water Permit No. 7439. The original permit granted withdrawal of 1350 gallons per minute and 187 acre-feet per year from a well located within the SE 1/4 NW 1/4 of Section 10 T. 30 N., R 5 W.W.M. for the purpose of community domestic supply. The intent of this application is to add up to four wells to the existing water system serving areas of Gales Addition and Fairview Water System. The new wells will be located within the SE 1/4 and SW 1/4 of Section 10, the SE 1/4 and SW 1/4 of Section 11, the NW 1/4 and NE 1/4 of Section 14 and the NW 1/4 and NE 1/4 of Section 15 all in T. 30 N., R. 5 W.W.M. The gpm and acre-feet will remain the same. Protests or objections to approval of this application must include a detailed statement of the basis of objections and are subject to public disclosure. Protests must be accompanied by a $50.00 fee and filed with the Dept. of Ecology, at P.O. Box 47775 Olympia, WA 98504-7775 within (30) days from January 26, 2011. Pub: January 19, 26, 2011 Makah Environmental Division Request for Proposal (RFP) Environmental Restoration Services The Makah Environmental Division is conducting environmental restoration activities on the Makah Indian Reservation. Professional services, including engineering and environmental consulting are needed to sample soil, sediment, surface water, and groundwater; plan, coordinate and oversee removal of abandoned buildings, other structures, and associated petroleum-contaminated soils; and to prepare technical reports. These restoration activities are scheduled from January 2011 through December 2011. To request a copy of the complete RFP, contact Steve Pendleton of the Makah Environmental Division at (360) 645-3289 or Marge Sawyer at 645-3286. Must comply with the Makah Employment and Contracting Rights Office (MECRA) To be accepted, the proposal must be submitted, no later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, February 4, 2011 by fax at (360) 645-2863 or hand delivered to : Bobbi Jo Kallappa Administrative Services Department Makah Tribal Council 201 Resort Drive Bld 19 Neah Bay, WA 98357 Pub: Jan. 21-Feb. 1, 2011 LEGAL NOTICE Notice of Public Hearing on Proposed Transit Service Reductions NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that a public hearing of the Clallam Transit System Board will hold a public hearing to receive public input and comments on proposed service reductions during the regular meeting of the transit governing Board on Monday, February 28, 2011. The public meeting will begin at 1:00 p.m. at the Clallam Transit System, 830 West Lauridsen Boulevard, Port Angeles, Washington. The public meeting will begin at 1:00 p.m. at the Clallam Transit System, 830 West Lauridsen Boulevard, Port Angeles, Washington. The public is encouraged to attend the public meeting and hearing and provide testimony. Written comment is also being taken and will be considered as public testimony for the public hearing. All written comments are due by February 21, 2011. In preparation for this public hearing and to provide this public with some additional ability to provide testimony, Clallam Transit staff will hold a preliminary series of public meetings in February in Port Angeles, Sequim, and Forks in order to begin to receive public input and comments on the proposed transit service reductions. These public meeting will be a means for the public to provide comment to staff and the system’s Board members. Clallam Transit’s primary source of operating revenue, a locally-imposed sales tax, has been in decline, reducing the system's ability to maintain its current level of service to the Public Transportation Benefit Area (PTBA). Although transit ridership has maintained through last year’s fare increase, the increased revenue and other administrated reductions cannot make up for the budget shortfall caused by the decline in sales tax revenue. Like most of its peer agencies, CTS is faced with cutting service as a response toward helping the system realize fiscal sustainability during these challenging times. The trips in this proposed service reduction have a history of low ridership. These recommended service reductions will have an affect on our customers; however, staff identified trips which would have the least impact on the system’s overall customer base. Copies of information detailing the proposed service reduction are available prior to the public meeting and hearing at the Clallam Transit System or phone 360/452-1315.

Clallam Transit System complies with all federal requirements under Title VI which prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, and sex. Terry G. Weed General Manager Pub: Jan. 26, 2011

Wow! Brandi’s stallion is Barlnk Macho Man Two, 15-time World and Reserve World Champion APHA/AQHA (for the American paint and quarter horse associations).

And not just any hay — there’s a lot of cheap hay for sale during the spring and summer that offers very little value nutritionally. Plus, horses need more hay (not grain) during the winter to fuel their metabolism, which, in turn, provides more energy to combat the cold. The horses eagerly stepped inside my trailer to the waiting bags of grass hay. Now I had time to stop by Z’s house on the way back for a Rescue quick hello.

Grant program seeks applicants Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — Conservation Futures, Jefferson County’s local open space grant program, is seeking applicants for open space projects. Open spaces include wildlife habitat, farms, timberlands and cultural sites. Conservation Futures provides permanent protection of key properties through purchase of conservation easements, development rights or land purchase. The program is supported by the Conservation Futures Levy of 3.7 cents per thousand dollars of property valuation. Each year, the Conservation Futures Citizen Oversight Committee solicits applications for new projects. After applications are rated, the committee provides funding recommendations to the board of county commissioners. Conservation Futures grant requests may be for any amount up to the level of funds available. This year, a total of approximately $75,000 is available to new projects of which up to $31,000 may be used for operations and maintenance activities. A minimum one-to-one matching contribution is required.

Completed applications must be received by Jefferson County Environmental Health by Tuesday, March 1. Examples of past efforts include the Chimacum Creek Estuary, which in June 2003 protected 16 acres of wildlife habitat near the mouth of the creek. In 2004, 2006 and 2009, Conservation Futures funds were used to purchase parcels within the Quimper Wildlife Corridor in Port Townsend. These properties provide important wildlife habitat, stormwater storage and filtration, as well as opportunities for walking, bicycling and horseback riding. In 2008, an easement was purchased on Finnriver Farm to protect agricultural and conservation values in perpetuity. One of four farms protected to date using Conservation Futures funds, Finnriver is especially known for its production of blueberries and cider. Environmental Health staff can provide application materials, answer questions and help identify potential project sponsors. For more information, visit us/commissioners and click on “Conservation Futures Program and Committee” or phone Tami Pokorny at 360-379-4498.

‘King’s Speech’ gets 12 Oscar nominations By David Germain

The Associated Press

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Queen Elizabeth II’s dad, Albert — the gentle, stammering Duke of York — never was meant to be king. And from Hollywood’s early honors this season, a drama based on his life never seemed destined as heir-apparent at the Academy Awards. Yet “The King’s Speech” took a step closer to the best-picture crown Tuesday, leading the Oscars with 12 nominations and gaining momentum against the online chronicle “The Social Network,” which had previously ruled the awards season. Hollywood’s top prize Feb. 27 now seems like a two-picture duel between stories about a monarch who lives in terror of a 1930s tool of mass communication — the radio microphone — and a college kid who helped define the Internet era by inventing Facebook.

Best picture Also nominated for best picture are the Western “True Grit,” second with 10 total nominations; the psychosexual thriller “Black Swan”; the boxing drama “The Fighter”; the sci-fi blockbuster “Inception”; the lesbian-family tale “The Kids Are All Right”; the survival story “127 Hours”; the animated smash “Toy Story 3”; and the Ozarks crime thriller “Winter’s Bone.” “The King’s Speech” is a pageant in the truest Oscar sense, with pomp, ceremony and history like past bestpicture winners “The Last Emperor,” “Lawrence of Arabia,” “A Man for All Seasons” and “Shakespeare in Love.” It’s also an intimate, personal tale of love and kinship as royal Albert (bestactor front-runner Colin Firth) is buoyed by the devotion of his wife (supporting-actress nominee

Guy Pearce portrays King Edward VIII in a scene from “The King’s Speech.” Helena Bonham Carter) and makes an unlikely friend out of a commoner, his wily speech therapist (supporting-actor contender Geoffrey Rush). “It’s a very, very human story. After all, how many of us are so blessed that we go through life without having to overcome some kind of personal obstacle?” said “The King’s Speech” writer David Seidler, who grew up with a stammer himself and earned a nomination for original screenplay.

‘Very human story’ Seidler said young people who were reluctant to see a historical film “end up absolutely loving it and wanting to see it again because they understand the emotions of being teased, being bullied, being marginalized, and they really understand the power of a supportive friendship.” Meantime, “The Social Network” seems like a film completely in the here and now as Harvard computer genius Mark Zuckerberg (best-actor nominee Jesse Eisenberg) reinvents the art of keeping in touch with the viral growth of Face-
